One of the very common questions that I received from our last session was the following. Brother I heard Angel Jibreel Alayhis Salam was involved in the drowning of Pharaoh is that authentic or not authentic? What's the story behind it?
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every time you hear that name saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said Lama vara Allah Who found when Allah caused Pharaoh to die, and that's it was his last last moments. He said, Pharaoh, I believe that there is no deity worthy of worship except the ones except the one whom the children of Israel believe in. Yes, very long. He could not say Leila Allah was struggling and whatever arrogant, still kicked in
Gibreel Allah His salah, told Prophet Muhammad I'm saying now 1000s of years later he says yeah Mohammed fellow Ray Tenny and yeah Muhammad only if you if you saw what I did. What did you do in your brain? Well, and I who do mean hand in Bihar, I grabbed the mud from the ocean, the soil from the ocean, sand and water mix together. And what do you do with it? For I do sudo vi VI, I grabbed the mud and stuck it and shoved it into the pharaohs mouth, authentic narration. He was so angry, for what frown did he was so jealous over Allah and how he can be treated like this. He was so angry over Musa alayhis salam. And why did he see this from frown? So he grabbed the mud and he shoved it
into the mouth of Pharaoh. The why Gibreel why? He said Maha Fattah because I was a little bit concerned that he would say La ilaha illallah that Pharaoh may actually verbalize. There's no deity worthy of worship except Allah. And because of him saying that I was concerned. And you did Rahmatullah that Allah's mercy may actually come upon Pharaoh. Yeah, Allah. To those who know Pharaoh, who has miserable things very well classified as one of the worst human beings ever walked on Earth. Pharaoh, the one who killed children Pharaoh, the one who kidnapped women, Pharaoh who enslaved that entire nation when he saw a pharaoh who called the Prophet Minoan insane sir had
magician Pharaoh, the one who killed his own wife and tortured her. He had a door that is slightly open he could have there was a chance. Unbelievable. Unbelievable. Even though we know from the Quran, clearly Allah says in the Quran, that it will not benefit you when you say La Ilaha illa Allah when the punishment comes your way and ends your life, like what happened to for our own thermal, come at all these people. You know, a prophet knew when the drowning took place, the flood, that moment, whatever you say it's over, I have the punishment has come. And I mentioned that before for almost Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have two moments where you're sorry will not be
accepted. Please forgive me it will be rejected. It is when the sun rises from the west which didn't happen. Or when your soul is about to depart your body the last moments of your life, that last moment for why to share this now is to for you, who says La Ilaha illa Allah if Gibreel who knows Allah more than all of us put together agreed. He felt there is a slight hair chance that Allah may actually accept for our as a Muslim domani will be held accountable for what he did. And Allah it's up to him to watch what he can do and what he wants to do. What about you who says Leila and Allah? How can you give up? So agreed? How can you who says La Ilaha in Allah say, Man, I'm a hopeless
case. Every time I do the mistake, I go and I apologize. I go back to it. Every time I'm trying to quit something I returned back to it. You know what, I'm not gonna ask God to forgive me. I feel like a hypocrite it happens. It happens to the young and the old. May Allah protect you all and make you have those who have hope and Allah say I mean, you know Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he talks about the Mercy of Allah. He said, If one since Okay, so you add as the new wood to fill Earth, how bad are you? How bad am I? How many mistakes have you done, though? The new back. mela chill out if your sins filled Earth, do you know how many sins that can be? I remember one of
my teachers had a Nazi he did this. He taught us this hadith. If your sins were to fill earth than he did this, can he take two seats? So he said pretend every sin is a chair. Every sin is a chair. So that's once a year.
Then another sin is another chair.
How many chairs do you need to fill Earth?
Aliens May Allah protect us once you're done filling Earth are you done? Yes some done here pretty bad yeah ALLAH forgive you. You're done you filled Earth now go up upwards to the sky.
Did you see that?
For those in the left side or my left? You go on top second,
third lobelias or Denuvo aka Anna Anna sama. So Allah says if your sins fill Earth and then you gross till it reaches the skies, may Allah protect us. If you come to Allah with a sincere heart believes in La Ilaha illa Allah, you seek the forgiveness of Allah refer to lack Adeleke wala Valley I'll forgive all of that and I have no problem with it. So how can you give up on Allah subhanho wa Taala can help me Salah
that's one sin.
me Allah forgive you. Oh, there's like a luxurious Allah. Allah Allah. May Allah bless you.
Is that lucky? So here Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling you this. So yes, I'm saying this after you commit the sin, don't lose hope in Allah subhanho wa taala. Before you commit the sin, I will push more in the fear side, not the hope side. Scary. Don't do it. Watch out. You did it. Lady Dijk don't give up on Allah. subhanaw taala The other thing about repentance is share with you. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us how much Allah loves it. When you apologize when you seek his repentance that I haven't had the chance Subhanallah but he missed it. You don't miss it. One of the most remarkable statements from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about
repentance. He gave the example of a man who was travelling. He had a camel filled with all his luggage, everything like he literally like traveled in a way that you can tell he's not coming back or so Allah, Allah Allah. But l all necessary means we're on that camel.
So as he was traveling, at one point in his travel by himself in that desert, he lost his camel. The camel was gone. And it was so fast. He couldn't catch up. He missed a camel. I can't believe it. And he was looking right and left. It was when so far that his eyes can no longer capture the camera. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this man felt so hopeless that it's a matter of time until I die. So he arrested on a tree. And then he sat and he's waiting on the remote waiting for death may Allah protect us era. And just to make bring the meaning closer, someone traveling in a area maybe out on South Dakota in a row that homeless no one goes to your card is empty with gas.
Your phone dies, you have absolutely no connection with the world you're waiting there are no lights no one is passing by. It's getting so bad a whole day passed by you stuffed in the car. Second day you cannot believe not a single living being has passed by no animals who try to slaughter and eat from nothing, no water, no river that say stay in the car just death to come. There's nothing colors. So this man was leaning on the tree.
And then he had a loved one like he just you know like those Duff.
And Allah knows for how long but then when he opened his eyes, guess what he saw? The camel.
What the camel. So when he saw the camel. Then he says, Oh God, oh God, you are my slave. And I am your Lord.
Brother for Allah. Stuff is being recorded. I mean, the cut the section. We're not gonna cut this section because that's what he said. He said, God, you are my slave. And I am your Lord. He made the mistake for our happy he was.
But I mean, she did it for Did you ever go through something like that? Were you ever so happy you acted weird?
Ah, Xena. Oh, yeah, I did. How was your tell your story with us?
I took a class one time. It's called heat transfer. I was a first year engineering student. And I wanted to take a summer class. And many summer classes were not available. So I took a third year engineering class. I didn't have the prerequisite but I just took a shot at it and they actually accepted my registration.
So then I went to the final exam throughout the whole semester trying to study was very difficult. And when I did my finals, Carlos, I'm doing the final exam. What do you usually do they do attendance Correct. Just make sure that you're here. So then the professor was passing by, you know, each $1 sign sign sign. Then he came to me. He looked at my student number. He's like 102
That's not third year students. They're 101 You see the number changes?
What What year are you? First year?
I know I'm not supposed to
taking this class but you guys accepted my registration. He said any thermodynamics one, you need fluid mechanics one there's no way you can take this class I think it's finals in a column, the final exam and the last literally the last moment I'll ever see you. You never notice 102 till now.
So quietly he's like, I remember the brother was was from Iran, he's like, you know, okay, good. So did my exam and I'm nervous. What did I do? What did I get? What did I get? So I was in my computer science lab. You know, the grades are now now uploaded after I don't know two weeks or so you get an email your are your grades are on the poor portal dial classroom. So I go online to login.
I get an A, I get an ace. I see my friend next to me. Like
I kissed him in the green doing I'm like, I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. Right? Something I would never do in a normal situation. I'm just so happy. It's crazy. I know I kissed them in class. I mean, then the lab it's fine.
This man was so happy that the camel was back he called God the slave and he called himself God.
The boy you're saying sharing this? Because Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah is happier than this man. When you seek his forgiveness
for life, Allah's law one more time. Allah is happier than this man how happy this man can even calculate that right? It's unbelievable. Allah even more happy Allah is happier than this man. When you return back to Allah and you start a new page. When you ask Allah to forgive you for whatever you've done throughout your life. When you tell Allah I'm gonna quit this habit. I'm going to start to pray I'm going to start to give in charity I'm going to do better with mom and dad I will no longer cheat I will no longer be treacherous yeah Allah please forgive me. It's a new page. Allah doesn't just love what you did. I like it so happy. So let me add an element for your repentance and
my repentance. Do it because God will be happy
Subhan Allah, this is how merciful Allah subhanho wa Taala is the brother can you before we go to move on with mu Sally's Salam and so can you tell us how do we repent from and there's a lot of details. But to make it very simple for you in sha Allah, repentance has to do with the past. You have to check box the present then you have to check box the future, ma'am. So past, present and future. Anybody has any bottle of water any anyone that can pass
and is vaccinated.
Zach, okay, I sent them all right. So let's pretend for income Salah tz. So, I'm never gonna sit in the front again. I live very thick. So let's say Salah has standing. So I'm like, I really hope let's say pretend this is open and like salah. I actually, you know, pour water on him and pretend this is happening. So, oh my god, Salah. I am so sorry. You can tell if you don't judge my intention. But I'm really regretful. Right. So I'm regretting what the past say I guess with me, I'm regretting the past. I'm so sorry. Oh my god. What would you say? Are you backing stop?
Many people do this in real life. I'm so sorry. I'm speeding up. Stop speeding.
I know this is wrong. Okay, stop, stop. Slow down. Right. So the past I have to feel regretful I have to regret why I've done the present. I have to stop. Is that enough?
Is that enough? Know what I have to do?
I promise I'll never do it again. That's part of the future. What else part of the future? I gotta make up for it. Take off your hood understand? Alright, let me go wash it for you. I'll buy you a new hoodie do something like that gotta make up for it. So that's the appropriate way to repent to God and to people in general. You regret what you've done. You stop the sin and you make up for it in the best way possible. And if it was a right you took from someone you should return back the right is like live anything that in Sharla any questions about what I said? This is very critical. Any questions? Don't be shy Sharla
or return the water.
Cynthia Sunday I'm sorry. Here you go. And give him an extra bottle so I give you the right back I sent you sent me Allah bless y'all see I mean, whoring sent. Okay, so frown is gone. Is he rip?
Is he resting in peace, law law? What about his people that supported him? Not at all. Listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says about for hours and his people. I will be learning the shape on the Overwatch team. While at bat no home fee her the hit Dounia Lana frown was
In this life by not seeing or experiencing God's mercy, so you know, his pyramids, his gold, his jewelry and all that flashy stuff. It actually never brought him any joy for those who never know now they know right now we know Allah says, we're at Tibet now we had the Disneyland Alanna while they were alive, torturing his wife as he, as we mentioned the last session, torturing the believers cutting the magician's hands and legs, remember last session, all of that stuff? You think he was strong and powerful? Allah says he was having the emptiness in his heart Allahu Akbar. Not just that we know clearly Allah also caused him to drown he said to the people look or people of Egypt anybody
slide the rivers are flowing from underneath me he was bragging then what happened? Allah made the river flow from above him Subhanallah so that's his punishment. Nah, no, no, no, no, no such people don't end right here with the pain that they've caused. Their pain the cause to people is so magnificent, so evil so bad that the punishment as we're speaking 2020 December 10. He's being punished for our is in the grave being punished and all those around him that supported him. Allah says in the Quran, and now you're all dona la ha who do well what I see Yeah, day or night right now. He's seeing hellfire. He's in pain, and all those who supported him all these millennials all
these millenniums, either upon Allah may Allah protect us era Bill alanine. The scholars use this idea as one of the biggest proof of the punishment of the grave, and we thank Allah for its existence, why? To punish those who deserve it.
And to remind us to be protected from it in this life, may Allah protect us. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One time he went to the grave and he was very emotional, and he told the people of Sahaba seek Allah's refuge from the punishment of the grave, so seek it out. Oh, the biller min Agha will cover Oh Allah protect us from the punishment of the grave. And now you are doing Alia who do want mushiya Because in the grave, you get to see your spot in the afterlife. If you're of the believers, you will see your paradise May Allah make it all for you. The disbelievers the evil doers, they will see their spot in hellfire.
Brother I have a quick question.
Would it be possible for a believer believer
to actually have a punishment in the bazaar? The grave period which is after death and before resurrection? Is it possible?
What do you guys think a Mormon
it's possible in the grave Subhanallah and the answer is yes. Do you have an example of a sin? Anybody can assist me in sha Allah? What sin
see that one more time.
Getting into like alcohol and drugs and stuff. Cynthia scenting Excellent point. When people start causing harm to themselves and to others severely, there is a chance that they may be punished in the grave unless Allah was otherwise to give you a hadith Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the Sahaba the greatest generation ever to pass it down to us eventually. He says 10 Zoho menial bowl take care when you use the bathroom. Don't smear all over your body. Take it serious it's not something just go to sleep no take it serious why Yasser Allah like you're talking about how we use the bathroom and how clean we got to be. The Anam matcha will cover the mineral bowl.
Because the majority of the punishment of the people in the grave are people who cared less about how they use the bathroom. It messes up their body, it goes all over the place. I don't care Subhan Allah may Allah protect us. So this is an example of the punishment. One time it also Allah Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, I shared that before I share it again. He passed by two graves that were being punished to graves. So he came and he placed like a leaf.
To him, Allah will cause the person in that grave who was being punished to relieve them a little bit from that punishment. So Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said these graves are being punished, but that's something that is major. Otherwise, they're just not major trouble. I get punished in the grave. It's not major in their thoughts in their opinion. They thought it was not a big deal. And one of them was the one who was gossiping and backbiting May Allah protect us. So there's a double cover that exists till you watch the you and I do not to be like for our and his people and be punished in the grave
So many things you can do. Right? You guys helped me out tell me a couple points. What can I do for me not to be punished in the grave for the sins I've created in my life. Tell me something
excellent mashallah Tabata kala specific good deeds if you do it will protect you from the punishment of the grave such as reading Surah Al Mulk Exodus chapter in the Quran fantastic Allama vertic What else can I do I don't want to get punished in the grave What can I do?
Excellent go the easy route say I'm sorry now. What are you waiting for? One guaranteed you have that you will live till tomorrow. When will he return the right back you'll lie stuff real and seek Allah's repentance. The other ways Allah may utilize to have our sins forgiven and not be punished in the grave. Good
Santi there's two words some say is still Farsi Allah forgive me Allah forgive me Allah forgive me, but some sins require a change of life repentance, and what's Toba? Toba is to Buster you turn that's what Toba means. Bro. Repent okay, you Buster you turn. You're at the wrong side you're doing wrong action. So you turn see you turn your back against the wrong and where do you go to the good? May Allah protect us and there's much more such as when people go through hardships and calamities. Right? Maybe right now you're not comfortable in your seat.
Sins are being erased Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No one faces hum wala rum and anxiety or stress or depression, except it makes your sins fall like tree leaves fall during the fall, until you walk on Earth and not having a single sin on you. Allah Akbar, you reach perfection. There are actually people living on Earth. They have no sense on the fromage toughness they've experienced in their life, may Allah protect us.
But you may say,
okay, like I know, like a really good person who's suffering does that mean they were really bad, bad
A group of people may Allah protect you all the other bits just excuse my example. A group of people may be in a car, five passenger, all occupied, they get in a car accident. They all have the same physical result. But all five may have a different spiritual result.
So some, it's a punishment from Allah. Others, it's for them to know their true colors. Others to elevate their status and Paradise, others to wake them up and return back to Allah. It's the same accident, but you don't know why. Someone went through it. Allah knows best. And then maybe you get a feeling of it and what you've done in your life. So avoid judging people because of this. That's why they're facing it. It's happened a couple weeks ago, someone was having a problem. I was in a gathering. And the guy called me after the meeting. He said, Do you think this person is suffering because of something they've wronged that they've done? is a possibility Yes, but you have to watch
how you address people may Allah forgive us at the very watchful. So here, that's your punishment in the grave. Hamas, the Day of Resurrection happens for our and his people are resurrected all of us are coming back to life and hamdulillah our parents who passed away great grandparents Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Musa alayhis salam, everyone is up Halla stone is, all these 1000s of years. It's pretty much over right? No, there's that for him in the afterlife on the Day of Judgment, not just that Allah says well Yama Taku Musa, about for our nice people and on the Day of Judgment at hero Alice rounder I shall
take him and his people supporters to the worst of punishments. May Allah protect us. So those who've been oppressed
depending upon what you're going through, may Allah protect you all this gives some relief when you want to get your rights back but you're hopeless, even the system or the government or people of royalty, they're blocking and if yours choked, love Allah The day will come where you get your rights back. And let's see what we'll get choked. May Allah protect us era so they go to hellfire. And Allah tells you what for our own and as people will do, the followers will tell Pharaoh ready for this reset. In canola come terbang fall Antimo Hoonah Nanase by manana who used to be with you Pharaoh, we hooked you up we voted for you we know you don't deserve it. Right we supported you with
our money donations everything we made sure we were able to kick away Musa and kill the magicians and ruin your wife's life everything. He can hook us up.
So what does Pharaoh tell them? And his people in Cologne fear how we're all here, buddy.
There's nothing I can help you today in law. Ha. How can I be in the labor? Allah has judged between the people. There's nothing I can do all control
Isn't the hands off? Allah they're blaming one another all you took me to hell it's called because of you No, no, I never forced you you listen you you you just like kids and adults
kids and adults a group of kids are talking okay and in the classroom you know you know what I'm going to do it over the weekend I'm going to go sledding inshallah with him. A no one talks. Who was talking?
Okay, no, since the teachers writing in the morning, no one's gonna sledding and shoving everything. My cousin's gonna come from Canada. Yeah, they open up the borders. They did. Right. And the teacher always thick.
You know, it was him talking. No, it was him. You guys were friends.
You guys were boys. We'll get a weekend study come over abama gonna call your mom. No, he was talking. He was kids. Right? And that's how the enemy is just like horrible people. May Allah protect us and hellfire May Allah make our kids there. Well, our parents, our siblings, I mean, and sometimes even adults do that once they get caught. How many times you watch a surveillance footage of people robbing a store? There's a driver, there's two people in behind and they're having the bags and the police comes the driver goes and they stay in the convenience store.
Carrying the ATM machine a buddy
where does the ways of friendship and we made a promise we never let go of each other will learn all the time and they swear by Allah Allah walkabout. Right? It's done? No, no 100 I brought a smile to many of you. But this is a reality you have to watch. Don't sell your your lord over horrible relationships. If you don't take this example to the next level, last one in sha Allah, there is a family somewhere in the world, okay, in which the daughter college student
was taking the jewelry and money off their parents without her parents knowing. So the parents were like, here's my jewelry. Where's my money? Someone's stealing it. And then that daughter was like, yeah, what's going on? We have to put a lock in this house, they put a lock whatever they do, still getting robbed. They're all like thinking, Who is it the man the daughter sticking all of this something that we've got involved in the Allah protect us era. She was passing it down to someone, quote unquote, a haram relationship from a man it's a wrong relationship, whether he's Muslim or not, doesn't make any difference. It's a wrong relationship. But to add to this, someone who does
not fear Allah know, love to Islam and makes fun of it. And he was someone who was into drugs and the horrible habits, and she was helping him out. And you know what, take this, and he's continued to do what he's doing. He never repented. It's not like he wants to change. So she did it at the expense of her family. Her mom was about to lose your mind. How was it possible put a ring camera outside? This whole time? It was from the inside? May Allah protect us the tears on mother's face? You sold the gold and jewelry that I was saving and I was gifted from your dad 2030 plus years? Because some loser?
Why would you do something like that? To ask us maybe would have helped even more? Talk to us? What are you doing Subhan Allah? And guess why am I sharing the story here? Because it was only a few months later, that guy quote unquote, dumped that girl. He took everything and he left. So has he lost a family and she lost the guy. But hamdulillah the mom will always be there. As long as Allah blesses her life, may Allah protect us yada. So be aware these stories are for honest people. It's not something just entertainment, something for you to truly reflect on. May Allah protect us, I mean Rabbil Alameen.
Now, when he saw Al, we mentioned, they were living through the gap that was opened between the two mountains of water escaping as fast as they can, and they saw frown drowning and his body floating the saw with their own eyes, the blessings Allah bestowed upon them. Allah helped us Allah beat Pharaoh is something no human being can imagine. Literally, if that, besides Islam, no one can logically put it together that this man can be defeated. It's impossible. But Allah defeated him without the need of human beings. Allahu Akbar, Allah is soldiers. The ocean is Allah soldier. The wind is Allah soldier. The mud is Allah soldier. So the assault miracles of Allah and Ray when they
turn their backs towards that scene, and they want to begin a new life away from Pharaoh. What happened brothers and sisters
rasool Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam we learned from him and from the Quran. They when they walk Jesus start walking after this miracle for acto Allah ko minea kupuna. Allah SNAM in LA home, they saw a group of people worshipping idols, something looks very fancy, like yours are worshiping it. They're devoted to it. Not many inside some other group of people who what's their name doesn't matter. Someone was doing this. So when many slides saw this
it's pretty cool.
all right. Okay, okay.
Can you hook us up with some idols?
True story. Musa, can you get us idols just like them to worship that to Allah? Allah Kamini Aquafina yaku foon Allah Milan Korea Musa Alana Isla Han Camella Alia Musa maker saga just like them, please, we want to we want to we want to do idol worshipping again.
It is unbelievable. He just saw loves miracles, and you want to go back to your old habits. A father, for example helped his son go through any the relief process from a hardship he was he was doing, whether it was drinking or drugs, he did everything he can to help his son out and he spent and he paid all his debt and all his loan, everything. And he went took his kid to the best hospital, it was going great and hamdulillah rehab is phenomenal. It took months and years. And in the moment this son leaves the hospital, he sees a group of people doing exactly what he did five years ago. He's like, I want to do this again. It kills it's painful, may Allah protect us. It's and
by the way, you have to appreciate the humanity of people. Not everyone can leave a bad habit so quickly. So may Allah make it easy for us. You know, when I was putting this together, you know what came to my mind.
The Magicians last session on in the day, they were the worst of people after Pharaoh.
At the night, they were martyrs and righteous. Some people change the bad habit over something that they see. Others don't. But you knew take the mean, you can have to believe you can change it. That's my bottom line. So no one ever please. Well, I'm saying with respect, no picking any individually. But in general, no one should ever say I try to get closer to God. But things are not working out impossible. Because there's two options. One is haram. It's just like God broke his promise. Or he's not doing it right. So when you go through something like that you really want to change a bad habit. You're really trying your best. It's not working. It's like what should I do to
make sure I let go of that bad habit? Don't claim God is not helping you because it's impossible. What's your proof? God said, if you walk to me,
I'll have an open door policy. No, but that's pretty cool. That would be excellent. Actually. Let's be very nice. Right? Many of you will never see the president in your life. Not even eye contact. So no real notes. Can you send me a letter? I think he will read it. You think?
What's the chances? So Allah says if you walk to Allah if Allah tells you a walk to you, man that's so humbling so amazing. What can merciful God he is I walk you will walk to me meet me halfway law. Allah says you walk to me, I will run to you. But just take one step just take a step. I don't know what to do. Get up, get up, customize your resume, do something apply call email, just do something. I take the action Allah will run to you. And that's a promise from Allah subhanho wa Taala so these people should be trying harder and harder. Now when they asked Musa to build an idol for them, he has to be honest. There are certain mistakes you can brush off agreed? Many times you tell us with
our children and some kids or my kids you know what if they do small things in hostel make a big deal. It's okay. Wait for the big ones right? May Allah protect us may Allah never have big ones. Right and address it but there's certain mistakes you have to address on the spot right away. And to Musa Ali Salaam. This was a mistake he has to reject he has to address he says in Nakamoto Monteggia How long you been here sorry asking for this. This is something extremely ignorant and horrible for you. Watch what you wish for. Then Musa alayhis salam said in our meetup Berlin in Berlin my home fee if these people are happy Musa saying you think these people are happy? Okay, they're doing all
this stuff worshipping give up giving up their lives and their money. They're putting like $100 Next to the idol hoping they get cured. And then they wipe something like this and then hoping they get a child and someone who is for example, had not having enough money they put $5 Hoping somehow they get a bigger return it happens till this day yes or no. seeking blessings from idols or whatever the case may be. In How lame we turn on my home feed not just that while volunteering McHenry I'm alone. There is no benefit in what they did. Actually they wasted the resources that's how bad these is called a year Allah He I believe Camila. Ha. You guys want a god other than Allah wa who are for
Bella como el el Amin, and Allah preferred you out of all beings He preferred you guys. How dare you How, how can you go thank someone else when he didn't think the one who provided you with the ability to thank how can you use a blessing against Allah? That's your thank you back to Allah. That's how you say thank you back to him by wanting to worship idols. Subhan Allah
rasool Allah, Allah Allah
Allah wa sallam went through the exact same thing, exact same thing. And he even quoted Musa alayhis salam
1000s of years later a group of people recently freshly accepting Islam they're going to the battle known as her name on the way to the battle fresh new Muslims. They saw a tree very famous tree called that too and what it's a tree with a lot of branches. People used to hang their swords on it, to be able to you know, think that the sword is not going to perform better, the sword will be sharper, more accurate, whatever nonsense obviously. So when these new Muslims they came Hadith, Islam, they saw this is the Rasul Allah
get us a tree where we can get blessings from it just like them
blessings we just destroyed the idols and Metka there are no blessings, you know, there's no blessings in these things. But sometimes when you see something, it clicks just yesterday, just yesterday last night so I'm like nine minutes I just remember just last night I was talking to a brother mashallah very well educated about you know, dieting and things like that. He said one of the main things to help improve your diet, one of the best ways to avoid sugar is for you not to see it.
An expert avoid eye contact.
Gardena oh my god, right avoid icon because trigger Subhanallah so they saw the tree like I want a tree to write me Allah protect us. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Subhan Allah, Allah is free from all of this Subhana Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allah. Allah is greater than everything, anything. The believer gets hurt. Subhan Allah doesn't celebrate that. He said Hamza, he said, That's exactly what happened to Musa and that's how we should be in our lives. We go through something. That's what Musa went through. What did he do? 123 You know, Muhammad wa sallam. When he went through this, he said exactly what Musa said this brother Alayhis Salam. And he told them, This
is ignorant stuff, they don't benefit you it's a waste of resources, etc. But there's two things I want to share with you guys very critical. Musa alayhis salam did he tell Benny Israel? You guys are confirmed now.
You guys are past stated. Okay, repeat after me. Go get this again. Repeat after me a shadow? A shadow? Allah. Allah. No. Right? You have to watch out when you call your brother and sister Oh, they left Islam.
Sometimes people get too excited. I don't think you're free from it. Well, I don't think you're free from it. We've seen it with our own eyes. A very small number of people attending a talk you know getting loving it enjoying it asking questions learning excellent job, great job Allah, whatever. Okay, month two three. Year two. They stopped showing up. Why?
Man I don't know tell you brother magic used to always show up what's happened? Nah, bro. Why I think you're a Kaffir how Lola Quwata illa why? Why do you say that? Because I saw you one time throwing a quarter in downtown Detroit into a pond.
Okay, so if I throw a quarter in the pond? Yeah. And you threw that quarter hoping that you will receive much more money. And this is sherek yeah heavy I was walking by the found in the Quarter fell.
Conference call me if and even if I did it. For that you have to verify under understand. Watch out from calling other believers. kofod we get our watch out I threaten you and I threaten myself through that religious guidance of Allah. Not actual threatened physical through Allah's guidance I was that spiritually speaking. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave us this threat. He said at Mr. Raja lune Kafala he took a diet look at the column. Any man or obviously woman calls their brother, Allahu Akbar calls their brother in all of them to be a Muslim at one point. So now you see if you think you call him a Kaffir that being a huduma Then one of you has to be a Catholic. I'm
confused. Okay, two people. One guy overzealous. This guy. You know what if I'm doing something wrong, throwing the quarter in the fountain. Okay. So he said you're a Kaffir
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says The moment someone says it that you have disbelieved. You have a past stated one of them has to be a Catholic.
Has to be
so if I was incorrect, what happens?
You become the captain.
You see what you're saying here?
Allah will not ask you why did he not call someone to walk alone ask you but Allah will ask you why did you call him if he did speak up? There's certain times where you have to speak up for sure there's no doubt that and just walking around labeling people will Brother Let me tell you something. I saw my mom getting this blue eye okay and we had this my little beautiful little brother we just give this light my mom came I put the blue eye on him why to protect him from infant evil Why is that not ship? Yeah, it's a form of ship they're thinking something may have the power besides Allah Yes. But since I told them and they still didn't so they are Kfar I'm not praying
behind them I'm not washing your bodies I'm not bringing Janessa no charity after that to them all this stuff when you tell someone he's a catheter more Ted pass stated. You strip them from many rights. Be aware of that. The the you know whether they understood what you said or not. Are you sure they comprehend? Did you
I don't know their brains? Allah was
Did they under maybe the way you're speaking? Maybe you caught it. Maybe you said it incorrectly. I said it correctly. But I'll actually open the book actually went on YouTube. I played the video. You don't know if they understood it. You can pay attention. Watch out. So that's something I'm gonna share with you neither Musa or Muhammad wa sallam call these people could fuck they did not know. Maybe they weren't paying attention slipped. Let's go back again. seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa taala. The other thing and the last thing in sha Allah. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something very powerful, may make people a little bit uncomfortable if we go into depth,
but just for the sake of time will not go into depth. But he told the Sahaba the new Muslims now Mohammed salah. He said when leadin fcbd. The Torah kabuna says soon that men cannot Kubla Khan, you will follow exactly the people of the past.
Step by step you guys get to imitate the people of the past. He's like warning them don't do that. And it will happen don't be of those people. So the Sahaba said, Who are you referring to that we will eventually some Muslims may imitate? helpdocs do you mean Alia who would want Nosara the Jews and the Christians were going to eventually some of us will imitate them he said, Woman woman either then who else? They will be the two primary groups, Muslims whether complex Musharraf issues and then can getting confused and shobhaa and just start to imitate thinking successors through that. You have to watch out. It's a very big topic. Maybe one day we can do a workshop about what are the
restrictions and the rules of imitation. There's a good talk in sha Allah, maybe one day we go deep into it. But let me give you a rule of thumb ready rule of thumb. If you hold tight to this rule of thumb, you're going to save yourself a lot of possible imitations right in sha Allah never imitate a ritual of any other religion.
Anything it's a ritual, even if the whole world does it. So what's an example example ritual? I know that some Christians may say it's actually an innovation, and they actually don't believe in it, but let's say the cross The cross, it's a ritual there's a rituals revolving around it. As a Muslim, you don't wear it, but you can't judge my intentions.
This is an example that your intentions do not matter.
Are you guys with me? You're worried just to proper data. You want to confuse the guys like oh, hey, how are you? You know, did you read the Bible Asha muscle? Oh, Psych right
so just getting you open up some opportunities don't use no opportunity to haram so this cross for example as Muslims we are prohibited from wearing it the hat that some of the Jewish people wear right it's something known to be a ritual about that religion. You should not wear it
what else this one last any point from this? Even if it's if it was a natural act, and not religious, a natural act to hold on breathe in breathe out if it was a natural act like baking a cake Oh extreme I felt that well I thought the an extremist hold on Yeah.
If there is a special cake a religion does like it's the random cake that is I don't know like blue green and three dots of yellow. Nothing to do with religion. But whoever has this cake is known to be for example, a Christian I guess with me
Whoever does this cake is known to be Jewish. No one does accept them. You don't do it.
Unless down the road this cake is so delicious. I'm sure if it goes around the world. And you start franchising and Christians and the Jews and the Buddhists and the atheists all they do then is no longer attribute it to these religious people hope that one was very clear inshallah. So please be careful. Avoid doubtful matters avoided any less
It's okay, ruin. Why would you be in Dearborn and put a Christmas tree?
Why on your beautiful store? Would you put something that resembles
a religion? We respect the people that follow it. Don't get me wrong, we respect we have guests from them, but I have to be honest with them. I can't sugarcoat now and they say a shadow should okay know what I said last Friday was all fake. I can't do that. This is an Amana your parents trust me with this. Allah entrusted me with this as an Amana. What do you what are we doing for any life? Think about it. Well, this really brings your business in these lights, these things that you know it's connected. Or you call me a cathode? I didn't say that you have to be watchful, but think twice. There are certain things that are clear. This is not what Muslims do. So be honest with Allah
subhanho wa taala. May Allah guide us to the truth. May Allah make us strong. May Allah make us courageous, especially if you're in Dearborn.
And most of your customers like a stop. No, I'm not going to displace. That's what actually happened. Sales will not go well Subhan Allah So may Allah protect you may Allah honoring May Allah bless you say I mean
Benissa eel we're having a dead body carried what Benny saw he had a dead body carry a dignified man who's this What's his body? What in the world he just come up with all that after the break, inshallah.
