00:01:32--> 00:01:33

clarify

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

their statements or the answers

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

to the new Muslims in Islam.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

Before beginning the

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

theme of the today's hotbar

00:01:51--> 00:01:55

I would like to remind the Muslims

00:01:57--> 00:02:04

of the etiquette of the Juma because you know, every place has its own etiquette.

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

And sometimes we Muslims because of our disposition,

00:02:11--> 00:02:22

because of our social position, because of our mentality or our habits. Sometimes we are doing the wrong etiquette in the wrong place.

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

And one day the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he entered his Masjid.

00:02:30--> 00:02:36

And he saw some people, they were sitting in separate places.

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

You know, what is what people do?

00:02:40--> 00:03:00

They look for the most comfortable place. And they just That's what I said. And so these people, they will not arguing, they will not have any differences. But the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did not like them to be sitting in separate places. So he said,

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

Why do you not

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

draw yourselves up in rows? As the melodica draw themselves up in front of the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala Oh, chemical civil law has some a lower labor setup. So I'm I'm suggesting to the young people, especially

00:03:20--> 00:03:29

if you don't have a sickness, or some reason to be sitting to the back or to the side, you should join the ranks because the ranks is where

00:03:31--> 00:03:43

Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us an area that is usually associated with gathering in the court and in the chapter title and now

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

the be

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

the 43rd verse

00:03:51--> 00:04:05

out of la semana de mina shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Yeah, you Latina amruta que la haka to party he will attempt to 11 and to Muslim moon. Oh you believe?

00:04:07--> 00:04:15

Fear Allah, the mindful of Allah with the hub, which is his exclusive right.

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

And do not die.

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

People of the remembrance

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

if we don't know.

00:04:25--> 00:04:38

So, if there's something we don't know, the laws of the eye of the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala he said, Yeah, you Hello Dina am an otaku la world 10

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

na su mapa de Manila.

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

00:04:49--> 00:04:57

Wa Conan can lead international law and foster home law aka humann fassi Koon.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

The Ayah continues

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

Yesterday we have it was horrible gin as horrible agenda to human fair isn't.

00:05:10--> 00:05:14

here Allah subhanaw taala calls us again to taqwa

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

taqwa,

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

consciousness. discipline.

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

Fear,

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

apprehension.

00:05:28--> 00:05:39

Attention. Like someone who comes to the edge of a mountain and looks down and sees maybe that the Fall is like 2000 feet. This is taqwa.

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

Well Changzhou

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

look, be mindful.

00:05:50--> 00:06:02

Develop your vision towards what you send forward for yourselves on tomorrow. And here tomorrow is not the next day. Tomorrow means your extended future.

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

What type of law and he mentioned again,

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

fear law, be mindful of the law.

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

In the law, hobby room, the man because the law he is happier, he is aware of the most subtle things in your life.

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

What you do,

00:06:26--> 00:06:30

and do not be like those people who forgot about a law.

00:06:32--> 00:06:37

So Allah he calls them to forget about their own welfare.

00:06:38--> 00:06:52

Now here forgetting about Allah subhanaw taala doesn't mean that they forgot the attributes of Allah, they forgot what the meaning of law in the law, they forgot that Allah is on his throne. They forgot this not what the AI means.

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

They forgot.

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

They became negligent.

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

In the establishment of the Sharia of Allah,

00:07:06--> 00:07:14

they became negligent in establishing in their lives, what a law has ordered them to do.

00:07:16--> 00:07:37

As a result of their becoming negligent of establishing in their lives, what a law has ordered them to do. A law made them like nothing. Allah caused them to lose their value a lot. He caused them to lose their weight a lot he caused them to lose their own identity.

00:07:38--> 00:08:00

When you lose your own identity, when you lose your own way, when you lose your own value, then your enemies and others they see you as trash and worthless for answer home and foster home without a human. And in addition to that a lot he labels those people as fast yakun.

00:08:04--> 00:08:06

And then he goes another direction.

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

Now yesterday we as having Nadi was have agenda that the people of the Gnar they are not like the people of the agenda. This is like obvious

00:08:19--> 00:08:31

doing and the evidence of what they're doing. What they're doing is evident. They're planting seeds and those seeds they are bearing fruit, but is the dour of rhetoric.

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

It is the dour of writing.

00:08:35--> 00:08:40

It is the dour of dialogue. It's an easy dour,

00:08:41--> 00:08:53

you just get the if you get the proper under relevant headings, you memorize them. If you have good personality, you are able to interact with people you start engaging in what is called dialogue.

00:08:56--> 00:09:12

This is very easy. So today, that means people are accepting embracing Islam, Muslims are becoming stronger. And also they are also bringing about people who are allies towards Islam. And this is good.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

However,

00:09:18--> 00:09:40

this is not the object of dour, just to talk. And for people to come forward and to embrace Islam. This is not the object. The object of Tao is that we produce fruits that are distributed and they add value to the life to the civilization.

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

This is the object of Dawa.

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

he gave a description to the believers he says quantum higher ah

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

oh Martin

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

Oh collegia to us.

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

Mohammed Salah lava and he was under

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

the advice of his messenger

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

which we find in the authentic ness.

00:10:16--> 00:10:22

So, now here we have a description of the objective of the dour.

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

A lot he has said to us continue you are

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

Hira, you are the people of hire

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

and

00:10:37--> 00:10:39

extract extracted out of mankind

00:10:40--> 00:10:45

and oma extracted out of mankind to do what

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

to bring higher.

00:10:49--> 00:10:52

So, Allah subhanho wa Taala he now describes the higher

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

the higher is not talking

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

the higher is not rhetoric,

00:11:01--> 00:11:07

the higher is not studying the higher is not praying.

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

The the higher is not fasting.

00:11:12--> 00:11:26

The higher here is not had all those things is a form of a badger and obviously a form of higher. But in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala gives a very clear definition to the higher

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

the higher

00:11:30--> 00:11:48

is establishing a platform creating a mechanism inside of the society where we live, where we are able to talk madona Bill Maher roof, what 10 how not other mooncup and this is the evidence of me Nuna de la

00:11:49--> 00:11:53

so tomorrow, tomorrow means to install

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

the component of armor.

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

armor is the ability to command

00:12:02--> 00:12:11

you cannot do under my roof if you're not in a position of leverage. If you don't have influence, if you're not in a position of commanding,

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

I'm gonna build my roof means that you have to develop you have to strive to be in a position where you are members of the community and they are people who are reliable and ethical and responsible among the community and they also do evil or corruption.

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

You can create a barrier to prevent them

00:12:38--> 00:12:43

not just to say it's wrong, but to create a barrier to prevent

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

like in the English language, it is called a deterrent.

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

Being able to establish the the armor

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

and the barrier to prevent

00:12:59--> 00:13:08

this is the characteristic of what took me No no. And because you have entered a contract and Amanda with a lot

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

and another I Lost Planet Allah says well taken on madonia the owner will hire well yamamura Bill Maher roof, well you can hold on to the moon car.

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

What will occur humo muffler horn CDI is very similar.

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

But it begins by saying

00:13:29--> 00:13:39

well take on you have been set up as an oma inviting towards higher. He again invite by doing that.

00:13:42--> 00:13:53

The most important challenge and priority for me says and there are cultural distinctions I want to just repeat that.

00:13:55--> 00:14:00

Because sectarian differences, two sources. However,

00:14:01--> 00:14:07

in Islam, we do not have a priesthood. Let's make that point clear.

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

is inescapable it's nobody's fault

00:14:13--> 00:14:20

to belong to various persuasions or groups or schools or ideas and sooner.

00:14:21--> 00:14:35

And those were the most accessible and what they have documented that is true ethnic group is a part of the culture of Allah subhanho wa Taala which he mentioned retirada fu

00:14:38--> 00:14:49

cultural distinctions, how we feel, what we eat, what we wear, how we speak our languages and things of that nature. Again, this is Qatar.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

But the object is that with your knowledge and with your Eman you must rise above that towards what towards unit

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

collective action.

00:15:04--> 00:15:10

This is the object of Islam, this is the challenge in front of us.

00:15:11--> 00:15:25

There is no greater social value, and no greater social mandate, then for the leaders, and the teachers of the Muslims,

00:15:26--> 00:15:41

to extend their hands to other leaders and teachers. So by example, those leaders and those teachers, they lead and teach by example,

00:15:42--> 00:15:53

they don't lead and teach by the text, the text itself, you're not leading and teaching by the text, you're leading and teaching by example.

00:15:56--> 00:16:18

And when they established this guy, to follow or consult a certain circle of scholars, or their students, we don't have any compulsion, the Muslims wherever they are, they can begin to acclimate themselves to this global rank and file leadership.

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, our community, the oma

00:16:25--> 00:17:08

that we are part of, should be known for their service and the benefit to the greater community of humanity and not simply be satisfied that we have built a Masjid that we have built a school that we have built some kind of edifice, that is sort of something that is visible that people can associate with Islam. Today, Muslims seem to be quite satisfied. There are scholars, students of knowledge, and people of social responsibility, who are local, and accessible to us.

00:17:12--> 00:17:16

One day, one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

he asked him a question.

00:17:24--> 00:17:29

He said, O Messenger of Allah, so awesome. Can you tell me something about Islam?

00:17:30--> 00:17:34

Which I cannot hope to ask anybody other than you?

00:17:37--> 00:18:02

You know, this is a very powerful way of asking a question, because this person did not take it for granted that he may be able to ask this question again. So since he was what the prophet SAW said, he asked him a question that was burning in his mind. And he prefaced it by saying, I could not hope to ask anybody other than you.

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

See what the problem is awesome, answered him. He said.

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

Cool.

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

Man to Billa

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

through muster Kim, Panama,

00:18:20--> 00:18:29

the Messenger of Allah So Sam, he had ways of saying something like he took a few words, and made it like very profound This is called Jawaharlal Kalam,

00:18:30--> 00:18:38

a way of saying something very profound and very prolific, but using just a few words, he said, couldn't say

00:18:39--> 00:18:42

Manju Bella, say I believe in Allah.

00:18:44--> 00:19:08

And here, I meant to Bella. It means those ads that we recited previously, cool, man to Bella, meaning those ads that we've recited previously, through muster can then be upon that, then stand upon that, then establish that in your life. So we Muslims, we have to say,

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

we believe in a lot.

00:19:13--> 00:19:33

But we also have to follow it up with doing what establishing these principles in our personal life, establishing these principles in our home, establishing these principles among our family, establish the principles in our neighborhood, establish these principles in our area where we live,

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

in our state, in our society and in our country.

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

Because it's the karma

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

is the objective of Islam. And it's the karma. It doesn't mean to call the athon. It doesn't mean just to stand for the prayer. It's the comma. It means that in the place where you are, where you are announcing and represents Islam, dear brothers and sisters in Islam

00:20:07--> 00:20:12

I have been to literally hundreds of conferences

00:20:14--> 00:20:18

where 1000s of scholars have attended and students of knowledge.

00:20:20--> 00:20:27

And in those conferences they are talking about wonderful topics, beautiful topics, and they are selling beautiful books.

00:20:32--> 00:20:37

No one can doubt that they are engaged in some form of Islamic activity.

00:20:39--> 00:20:43

I want to recite an area of the Quran to us today.

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

So we can take it beyond those beautiful was the 20th surah and the 77th verse.

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala says of the

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

facade fill out of the in Allah La your Hubble musi de

00:21:07--> 00:21:18

su panic attack la after what I tell you inside now see buka minute dunya will action camera acen Allahu la caja.

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

He allows power to Allah

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

He mentions it reminds us

00:21:28--> 00:21:31

So, seek you seek ye

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

seek to obtain

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

the

00:21:38--> 00:21:42

Darryl akhira what is the provisions of the DOL akhira

00:21:44--> 00:21:49

This is all the better that we do seeking to obtain the data accurate to hereafter.

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

But then he reminds us

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

will attend

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

but do not forget

00:21:59--> 00:22:03

nasi Boca Do not forget your Nasim

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

What is your Nasim

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

your share

00:22:09--> 00:22:13

of the dunya and what is your share of the dunya It doesn't mean your piece of the pie.

00:22:15--> 00:22:22

your share of the dunya here implies your share of social responsibility.

00:22:24--> 00:22:37

You cannot allow the society just to move. You cannot allow the place where you are living it just to exist. And you're just there seeking your

00:22:40--> 00:22:47

and then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well I said come on Canada accent Allahu la sapan Allah, you know Allah.

00:22:50--> 00:23:32

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Watson can axon Allahu la sapan Allah, you know Allah subhanho wa Taala when he's describing the NBA, you know, when you read the NBA, always a lot is describing them as much seen in movie scene. So here was one of those says, what x and camera axonemal earache. So here absent it means that you should adopt the social responsibility like the NBA who were muscling as the last panel with the Allah. He also will ask you like as a last panelist, Allah He gave to you

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

voluntarily and do not

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

subvert and do not commit facade fill out

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

in the law law your head will mostly be

00:23:51--> 00:24:00

the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam he gave us two different ahadees I like to relate to this talk

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

about social responsibility.

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

He says movement, kill movement and movement, little movement, California and that the believer to another believer is like the parts of a building and then he put his fingers together like that. You should do bow to bow.

00:24:24--> 00:24:44

So a believer to another believer is that we are components we are complimentary components of building. You know we're not just the bricks but we are the bricks that is cemented together with the mortar. Like when the masjid is only the exercise, but the exercise is for us to do it outside of the masjid.

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

Then the professor Sam he said to us another Hadees

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

aluminum karoui

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

Hi Ron Hubbard in our middle movement of life

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

That the strong, influential, resourceful believer is better and more beloved than the weak one.

00:25:11--> 00:25:17

The professor's have also said yet the Ola higher on miniato souffle

00:25:19--> 00:25:22

that the upper hand is better than the lower hand.

00:25:24--> 00:25:53

We said all of this, to remind ourselves of the objective of Islam, to improve our behavior and to improve our response to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We asked the last one so that we all be mindful. And we asked the last one so that we ourselves, including the one who was speaking, that we take the medicine that we give to others that we take the medicine ourselves, while kuqali Heather was Dr. la de bola calm.

00:25:55--> 00:25:57

Alhamdulillah I woke up, I was like,

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

I want to take this

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

last two or three minutes

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

to talk, especially to the young Muslims.

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

You have drank from your fathers,

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

you have taken from your teachers.

00:26:23--> 00:26:46

00:26:48--> 00:26:49

But I asked you a question.

00:26:51--> 00:27:06

How many of you and this is a rhetorical question because in Juma there's no responses. It's a rhetorical question, but it's a meaningful question. And you should go home and ask yourself the question again, how many of you,

00:27:08--> 00:27:09

whether you have an undergrad

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

or graduate degree, you have a pH, D, D, D.

00:27:15--> 00:27:17

How many of you,

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

one that you wrote by your own hand.

00:27:22--> 00:27:50

One that after you wrote it, you spell checked it, you typed it, you spell checked it, you double spaced it, you typed it out, you gave it to your mom or dad or your mentor, your teacher, or the chef and the MOS was somebody that you respect, and you asked them to please read it and advise you, and after they gave it back to you, you amended it. And then after that you kept it with you like a folded sheet of paper until you memorized it.

You need to be properly equipped, and the world that we live in today,

00:29:04--> 00:29:12

00:29:13--> 00:29:20

with, we just don't want to be sincere Muslims, we want to be productive Muslims.

00:29:22--> 00:29:53

You're never too old to do something that you should have done. At least you should advise your sons and daughters to do a life plan. And if you don't know what it is, there are people who can give you the template to do it. And I advise that you do that as a matter of adding value to your career.
