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

For the Muslim world, my brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:00:05--> 00:00:10

there is a branch of knowledge in Islam

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

that is so important for all of us

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

to look at and strive

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

to learn and understand.

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

And that branch has to do with your Creator with a loss of power over time.

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

Now, if

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

they're not looking for

00:00:36--> 00:00:46

one of the early scholars, he has a very important and profound statement. He said, the claim if you're interested

00:00:48--> 00:00:56

menara for Lavanya Smith, he was 30, he will fit a hubbub double ever had.

00:00:58--> 00:01:04

If you need to know a loss of Hana with Ireland, through His names, attributes

00:01:05--> 00:01:11

and actions, you will find your hearts come build, to love a lot.

00:01:13--> 00:01:19

Lane will walk through the knowledge of Allah Subhana Allah and yet our

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

hope or project

00:01:23--> 00:01:40

through the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala knowing who you worship, you will find your heart feeling Allah, loving Allah, hoping Allah Subhana Allah. And these are the three servitudes that we need in order to keep going.

00:01:41--> 00:01:50

And there is tremendous evidence to show you the importance of this particular subject in of that version sort of fathers.

00:01:51--> 00:02:13

And this is how it's read, by the way, in number yaksha law her minivan the hill hula and I'm doing that intentionally I understand the Walker Bush. Yanina halachot. Indeed, those who have the most harsher and harsher is a brand new feature

00:02:15--> 00:02:23

is fear mixed with love, with exaltation, not pure fees, like the one that you have from a lion from

00:02:24--> 00:02:37

a beast, ya know, it's a brand that a mixture of love davine davine, exalting Allah Subhana Allah, that you're feeding him but meanwhile you're loving him. So

00:02:38--> 00:02:46

that's a question. Indeed those who have the most harsh in their hearts towards Allah are the most knowledgeable of Allah.

00:02:48--> 00:02:53

Mr. Muslim, have you ever seen in America of your loved one, the famous Hadith we'll have

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

three individuals came to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they asked about the manner of his worship,

00:03:02--> 00:03:17

how much devoted he is to Allah subhanho wa Taala I want to go into the hurry this is a lecture by itself. But at the end of the day, they assume that they should do more than the Messenger of Allah.

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

And this is a problem in itself.

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

And he called the oma and he said listen,

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

level can be left while shadow kulambu

00:03:34--> 00:04:14

and the most knowledgeable among shufoo Allah is and and the most fearful one amongst you have a lot and I'm not going to do that. One of them actually said that I'm not going to marry I'm going to be like a monk. You know celibacy that is stuff that we in the Christians promoted in the faith. One of them said I'm going to fast every single day, but no, I don't do that. I don't do this. But Elaine will marry fibrillary Hollywood. malema, the scorers of this team. They divide Islam into two halves, two portions look look look. lol mobila

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

well amarilla

00:04:19--> 00:04:32

Islam is as simple as that. That you know who Allah is and you vote for Allah only. No one else. That's what this letter is. The first for Nicola tahini lakita name it what is some people don't like that name.

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

Okay, name it whatever your name. You choose the name.

00:04:39--> 00:04:52

And the other part that you devote yourself to a lot of the other ones will tell me the other one. Though he said the labor union names just names in the last met some may now.

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

It will be late what is a key and this is what is missing.

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

In,

00:05:01--> 00:05:21

you know, quite frankly, living in the United States in particular, you need to realize something for you to give that hour. This is the only field you're supposed to engage in a conversation with a Christian or the only field and I have my evidence. How do you

00:05:22--> 00:05:43

have a loved one woman? What have you sorry hi Muslim, one more either natural or have your loved one was sent to Yemen. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him and Nikita Coleman and Nikita The police will you go into ambition induced, let be the first thing that you call them to let ilaha illa Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah begins with that part with that knowledge.

00:05:45--> 00:05:59

And Ayesha confirms this. She says for 13 years in Mecca, the only thing that we know of this religion who Allah is and the rewards and the punishment gender and

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

nothing else for 15 years

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

when when your hearts

00:06:09--> 00:06:25

processes are due process, that knowledge brothers and sisters in Islam, a lot of benefits out there a lot of benefits enough that you will be calling upon Allah, but one of the first benefit that you will get

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

that you know who you are

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

for

00:06:31--> 00:06:41

men Mandara from La Habra la are an OBJ will x men are Vanessa OBJ alpha who will

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

if you know that Allah is the most knowledgeable then you know that you lack some knowledge.

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

Don't walk on earth pretending that you know everything.

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

And we have a messenger one of only lies

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

he was asked who has the most knowledge

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

he claimed it to himself.

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

Like I said nobody knows that

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

there is a hidden man out there go and learn from him.

00:07:16--> 00:07:25

When you know Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most powerful then you know that you're weak from an alpha who will pull work out of enough so we'll get

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

an alpha who bilena

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

alpha alpha nafsa who will

00:07:33--> 00:07:38

that's the first benefit that you start assessing yourself properly.

00:07:40--> 00:07:51

There is a trade here What if we have it as Muslims is admiring who you are admiring your opinion? admiring your

00:07:54--> 00:08:01

loss of Hannah without further to the boo boo boo boom ever brace yourselves don't

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

don't

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

have difficulty man. There is a religious

00:08:09--> 00:08:16

I would say 99% of the Muslims don't know about that when you when you say that and are more men you're supposed to saying shut

00:08:19--> 00:08:27

up and a movement led led to check in upset me man yeah Judy stiff now Phil and

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

I'm a believer in show

00:08:31--> 00:08:36

because why? Why do you say insha Allah because oh I'm a believer

00:08:37--> 00:08:45

don't do that dude. Yeah but I'm a Muslim Yes papa mama no push no says don't say inshallah mama Muslim.

00:08:47--> 00:08:57

But why the other one, in order to brace yourselves in order not to brace your opinion in order not to brace who you are. You know, you look down upon yourselves.

00:08:58--> 00:09:05

Another aspect of the knowledge of Allah brothers and sisters in Islam. self denial

00:09:06--> 00:09:57

is a concept that is totally forgotten in the moment right now. And I want to tell you something if this oma Torah is again to come back again if this oma is to take it status again the status which Allah subhana wa tada identified going to higher Rama, we must have individuals in our communities who are willing to self deny themselves is not about me or you, ah, doesn't exist in Islam is about community. It's about it's about what benefits the it's not my opinion. It's not your opinion. You deny yourself and we have examples of this. Why the companions in in ears? Never. And I challenge anyone non Muslims even go back and study the history of humanity never happened in 10 to 15 years

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

that you get a generation

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

Who takes over superpowers

00:10:03--> 00:10:11

Dominator in 10 years after the death of Rasulullah saw seems to be after 14 years. If you add the two plus the 12 performance to a buck,

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

14 years bill James Gunn,

00:10:16--> 00:10:21

Roman Woodward, Conan it hasn't been for the fitna that are wrapped up in the oma.

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

Let's start but why? Because of self denial.

00:10:27--> 00:10:45

Imagine you're in a battlefield. Imagine if this needs to happen. And you will be General of the Army. You're the one in command mechanism and the letter is sent to you. You're no longer the general give it up and give it your voice in the battlefield.

00:10:46--> 00:10:51

Anyone in his sound mind right now? Oh man, COO, coo coo is right.

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

And

00:10:55--> 00:11:07

he even executed the battle later on by the way Aveda. And Holliday manually almost told me that I'm no longer the amigo and I'm going to help you. I'm going to be your soldier. We're going to stand by you

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

to do militia.

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

A situation that some of you may not be aware of.

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

When

00:11:22--> 00:11:29

the disbelievers came to fight again, after they lost that is in a battle called of

00:11:30--> 00:11:52

course the name was disgraced in nearly 300 people defeated you killed your leaders Abuja and all these guys were killed. So they came back the third deal after Nitro to basically for vengeance. Rasul Salallahu alaihe, Salam Hill Ashura Council.

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

Okay, we have almost 3000

00:11:58--> 00:12:19

army 3000 soldiers in the army will equip coming to fighter should we don't have that number? Should we find them inside Medina. So we can do a street battle. So the kids can help the woman can help? Or should we go out and meet them in the outside in the outskirts? By the way

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

Rasulullah

00:12:22--> 00:13:06

rasulillah was with the opinion that we should stay in Medina, we shouldn't go out. We need the help of anybody. That's a huge army for us. But their companions who missed on bed because there are certain companions By the way, who did not go go to bed. Why because better was not a battle to begin with, but initially, was to intercept a caravan for 40 people guarding a treat coming from shampoo to marine I was getting that so it was not a bad thing to work. There was no obligation what I'm trying to say. But when they defeated the the non Muslim army, they received a status out of the world out of the world to the extent that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked by

00:13:06--> 00:13:15

jabril Matt how do you how do you consider that our best This is likewise the angels who came down and for the rest of the angels to

00:13:17--> 00:13:32

fulfill his sermon for the companions was so motivated I missed on that I want to make up Oh our so they were so motivated so Salah sure that's how it goes one of him it was one of them that's not a religious message is that

00:13:33--> 00:14:02

you know when when you have a dunya matter opinions views enrich your subjects and we don't miss from non Muslims you know somehow we we like to abuts non Muslims and every little thing once it comes to showing down the way once it comes to wearing rings, it rings now, but once it comes to the stuff like this, no, no. They said okay, what is what do you think brother? What do you think brother? What do you think brother? Okay. You know

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

that people think that even though it's not my opinion.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

Let's move on. One on one.

00:14:11--> 00:14:17

The Companions, they basically overran the opinion of Rasulullah

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

sallallahu.

00:14:20--> 00:14:41

He stood up and he went and he put his shield on. So after he left a lot they felt like they overdid it. That was too much that shouldn't have done that. So let's go back and retreat. So one of them followed him to the room while he was getting ready. And he said Dr. Salama, we're gonna fight in the

00:14:42--> 00:14:48

medical arena. It's over the time for sure is over. A decision was made.

00:14:49--> 00:14:58

It's now time to move on execute for either an Omaha reveals abroad for either as an that what can

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

win the match

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

There is resolved move on. Again, you know, when you sit in, in a community like this, and you want to serve the dean, you want to serve a law. If your opinion is not accepted, you know what? So what, man, what you want to tell me that you're the most knowledgeable law, nobody will follow? Hopefully, there is somebody out there who knows better. Maybe your judgment of the situation is not again yet well, why? Because you know that this is a law so that you don't want more things that you benefit from the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you don't have a lot you do like you're not by yourself. You don't admire your position. You don't admire your your power, you don't admire

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

resources. You don't have my work you have done.

00:15:52--> 00:15:55

You believe that? That's step number one.

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

Step number one to win. Oh, brother, I built that machine.

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

I'm the one who did that stuff. So what

00:16:06--> 00:16:10

have you said manufactured the other line? What has happened to Sandra?

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

In the day of judgment?

00:16:15--> 00:16:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala will set the scale. The scale is the path on which our actions are placed. Imagine one pan of the scale is as huge as the heavens and the earth together.

00:16:31--> 00:16:48

For the angels will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala Lima, who is gonna come in the day of judgment with one act that will fill that scale. Allah subhanho wa Taala will say, lemon sheep Femina ma Daddy, some of my slaves will come with such deeds.

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

The angels who never stop part

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

should use the phone and lay low and know how

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

to win.

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

They never pass from making to speak, they will say so panic, ma I bet the NACA have diabetic, we have not worshipped you in the manner that you deserve. So regardless of what you do, regardless of what you have done, there is a story out of this world you know, by Allah by Allah. If I asked you

00:17:26--> 00:17:31

to write a resume and I'm sorry used culture language with a companion logo for armor

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

00:17:35--> 00:17:41

please, please like if you want to write it like nowadays, like credentials former? Like

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

what would you like?

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

Maybe

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

right before the death of

00:17:53--> 00:17:57

Russell tells Omar that there is someone who's not my companion.

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

He lives in Yemen

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

is when it comes to mahina one day

00:18:07--> 00:18:11

if you were able to ask him to make his the fall for you do

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

medicine or

00:18:16--> 00:18:20

else this is a waste of solid waste to come. You know the stories always don't you?

00:18:21--> 00:18:35

He's not a companion. He's not a he's a predecessor, someone that Rasul Allah told him that he will come from Yemen, he will come to Hajj money, you're over, you're able to meet him, make sure that you ask him to make us depart from Allah.

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

For what what it is

00:18:42--> 00:18:48

what it is we admire, you know, but we we will all of these come from from the knowledge of Allah.

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

Yeah, Johan la Vina del con la one Tango natsui nurses

this verse was read by someone and I don't want to name him because may get us in trouble, especially our friends here.

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

And another one who knows on

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

a famous story that he landed

00:22:12--> 00:22:24

in his CSI is the merits of evil that from our beloved our best and it's authentically transmitted reason is one of the authentically transmitted Arthur best in explaining the fraud that one day

00:22:25--> 00:22:31

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

non Muslims living in Medina, so, he sat there and he found one of the scholars both in house

sitting around them are the students for our work abroad him and he said why hack if in house woe to you we have in house, water you.

00:22:54--> 00:23:00

You know that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the two messengers from Allah and he will send you you should be the first one to accept him.

00:23:02--> 00:23:13

You should believe in a lot. You know what fantastic. He said, I will not believe in a God who abandons us from dealing in usury and he allows it to himself.

00:23:16--> 00:23:19

He let young now on the liver while we

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

shuffle, shuffle. Most of us

00:23:26--> 00:23:29

when you see somebody thinks like this about Allah, he's the most ignorant

00:23:31--> 00:23:31

when it

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

comes to

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

medical data live

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

of Africa if you give Allah Good lord Allah will multiplied for you so you want to say that allies accepting a loan and giving it back to you

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

so that's using but meanwhile I cannot do that.

00:24:04--> 00:24:11

Somebody who lacks that he's somebody that by the way, who believes that a man cries every night angels comes and counsel him that

00:24:12--> 00:24:15

the coop profits Fortin, and he didn't know that

00:24:16--> 00:24:25

he believes that the law created the heavens and the earth in six days and then he got tired and he rested on the seventh day and stuff like that. Yeah, that's that that's depth knowledge of Allah.

00:24:26--> 00:24:32

Allah Allah plus an hour to an hour long enough to show another companion heard it.

00:24:35--> 00:24:36

He heard the scene.

00:24:39--> 00:24:39

yada

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

600 boundaries from Horace.

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

will

00:25:18--> 00:25:33

roam you will not give you so when you know who Allah is, you will be why a companion will come. Why? Because he knows that Allah will take care of him. I will welcome the librarian brought all his wealth. What did you do?

Adding a modifier is a key is a key to revive the owner is a key is a key if we want to redirect this on my back when a business owner back on track whenever you means Listen, Allah would get it back.

00:25:52--> 00:26:07

A law will give it a lot we'll get this on whether whether you like it or not, whether they like it or not allow you but it's really the question, are we qualified to be that generation that will be used to bring that omega cola that's the whole thing.

00:26:09--> 00:26:26

Quite frankly, I'm not being honest. We will look like it. We don't. So at least we should contribute. We should place a seat somewhere. Place a seat so don't be selfish. Don't leave this don't do that placing a seat. Place a seat somewhere

00:26:28--> 00:26:44

I will stand up and I will ask you to help for the sake of Allah. I want you to remember two things. two things. Number one, that you're doing this for a lot. And if you're not doing it for Allah, I'm telling you don't do it. And the first one who's going to tell you do not do it. Number two, I understand well, I traveled this country every week, somewhere. I don't even remember last week whether they gave a foot back. I have to collect myself. Every week I'm looking at differently. And you know what is the community I go to

00:29:28--> 00:29:59
