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

What does fitna mean?

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

I will tell you the linguistic meaning and the technical meaning. And I noticed that some people when they say linguistic meaning and the technical meaning they like what's the difference? example? What?

00:00:32--> 00:00:40

linguistic meaning it comes from the root word What is up, which means you look up and there's a ceiling linguistically.

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

Technically, it means how are you doing?

00:00:47--> 00:00:47

Clear,

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

technical and linguistic and handler and it's lab there's not that big of a difference.

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

Fitness fitna linguistically means and I'm gonna tell you something which in it, there's a definition.

00:01:02--> 00:01:09

Gold, when is extracted off Earth and is discovered, it never comes always natural and pure.

00:01:11--> 00:01:57

Every single time gold is discovered around it, there are impurities. So the first time that person is caught, fetac is the one that gets that gold and puts it through a refining process, which we call fitness. So that, that Goldsmith's in English is the one that grabs that gold puts it in a very high temperature like oven, and then he will differentiate between the pure from the impure, clear, so that it not linguistically comes from the one that's fatahna, the gold from impurity from purities. So when my wife asked for 24 karat gold, that's so pure, I cannot put.

00:01:58--> 00:02:21

So that's linguistically is that clear. Technically fitna means and this Islamic term means test trials and tribulations and in the Quran and Sunnah Allah, Allah uses fitna and different meanings example. fitna would mean coup for this belief, or was countenances.

00:02:27--> 00:02:34

Exactly, then Allah, Allah says also another verse, where fitna means children and money,

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

then it can also mean killing

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

it in

00:02:58--> 00:03:03

another meaning it can also mean calamities trial should lead to a loss of power.

00:03:22--> 00:03:33

Every moment of your life is a test every single moment, either higher goodness that would come up to you and you'd be thankful or sharp that you should be

00:03:34--> 00:03:44

patient towards when a blue comm will. Sherry will say the fitna and do you know that each and every single one of us is a fitna to the other person.

00:03:46--> 00:03:52

You are a fitna to me and I'm a fitna to you we're a testing tribulation to one another. How was that a loss of paradise?

00:04:05--> 00:04:27

Why do we have to go through trials and tribulations? I said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. I said, there's no deity worthy of worship except Allah and Prophet Mohammed is his slave and finally messenger. Why should we go through trials and tribulations? There are two reasons before I mentioned the two reasons. I want to tap in the shoulder not in the face.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

Is there any doctor

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

that would make hundreds of 1000s of dollars a year without going through any kind of MCAT p cat that chemistry, biology whatever class where he or she has to be examined and take tests? Can anyone join the basketball team or the soccer team without going through some tests and tryouts? Can anyone take the driver license without taking a driving test? And now

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

When Allah subhana wa tada says, and his meme has he been asked to unmute Roku and yaku Amanda homelife to know do you guys think out of your mind that you will be saying I believe and you will not be tested, Allah is telling you that you will be left alone saying I believe and know that door test. And so Pamela says M has symptom and that Hello Jana, and you think you enter Paradise just like that. One? method Lavina Holloman publikum and you will not face what the people in the past have faced. Mr. Toole betsa

00:05:41--> 00:06:26

was was you know, they faced sicknesses, poverty, calamities, and there was shaken was a lot of tests and trials. You think you will just say I believe in intergender? Do you think you will just go with life so smoothly. And you will go to Jenna, where you have a mansion where you go around and all kind of food is around, you'll go to Jenna and you will never ever in your life be sad or depressed. You will go to Jenna and enjoy every beautiful scene around you not just like the one in Vancouver. But Jenna, you think you will go to Jenna we're in that place, you will never be sick, you will never sneeze except beauty. You will never have any sweat and if you had sweat, when you

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

have sweat, it will be muskan beautiful smell, when you go to Agenda your house will be made of bricks of gold and silver, all that agenda just like that.

00:06:39--> 00:06:51

And when you go to agenda and you enjoy the most beautiful thing in the world, the most beautiful thing which you will ever experience which is seeing a law

00:06:52--> 00:07:06

you seeing a lot is the most beautiful thing in the world, you will just get it just like that. Before I mentioned the two points when we tested you have to know that Do you think you can make it to the top X Factor without meeting Simon

00:07:08--> 00:07:12

and making fun of you and harassing you you have to go through the test.

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

A lot tests you Reason number one,

00:07:18--> 00:07:26

you got to focus a lot would make you through go through hardship for two reasons. Number one, Allah subhana wa tada said, has even

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

won a body fat

00:07:41--> 00:07:41

body

00:07:52--> 00:08:02

number one reason so they can be tested so they can differentiate can know that believer that truthful from the

00:08:03--> 00:08:43

liar in know how now the goldsmith would bring the gold into the oven and the pure will be clear and the impurities will drop and he has differentiated between the noble metals and the non noble metals. Allah will test us so we can be clear and apparent not just to Allah and the angels, but to the public. Very clear example what is happening in Syria right now. What happening is a great fitna and the Prophet told us a time will come with the people that won the enemies of Islam will come and attack the Muslim The Prophet said with his own tongue

00:08:45--> 00:09:15

calling to the ears of the Sahaba transmitted from their tongue and heart and memory all the way until this day in authentic hadith, they will come and eat from you and you will take a bite just like how the people would gather under one plate how rough they would be eating habits at Oh ALLAH is it because we are few in number also a lot. Is it because we are few and numbers and that's why they're beating us and bullying us. He said no, no, no, no, no, you guys will be large in numbers.

00:09:16--> 00:09:24

But two issues they these people will have at that time. The love of this dunya

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

and the hate factor towards the

00:09:30--> 00:09:43

people will just be blind about this life. Life is so beautiful. And death I hate that just don't talk about Brother Brother. Please don't ever talk about a physic getting about death because this depresses me. Death

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

so paneled let me Allah protect us. So number one is to differentiate.

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

And now maybe there's a fitna roaming around you right now. Maybe that fitna? You know, what is it? I'm just guessing what

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

that fit that is roaming around right now, is that why would a lot test us and differentiate between us if Allah already knows the results?

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

So

00:10:12--> 00:10:21

it comes to the mind. And this is a fitness that comes to your mind. And I want you to focus really well on the following point. Bismillah.

00:10:24--> 00:10:53

And before I mentioned, I'll give you a personal experience I taught as a substitute teacher, is the law here is the law here. The law Raise your hand. Okay. So the law is one of my respected and art students. So I apologize if I've ever annoyed, you know, as a teacher if I was ever rough, but when I was a teacher, I can estimate the last final mark. According to her beautiful attitude in class or horrible attitude. Allah knows best. And I know too.

00:10:54--> 00:11:23

And she knows well, so depends on the factor. And we can estimate after doing the homework what she can get in the final exam, but can I go and her report card and she got 100%? No, because to be fair, you have to give her the exam just like any other students, is that correct? But even in that class, I can estimate that girl and that girl and that girl and that girl, you see two NBA players, okay, or two NBA teams, what's the number one team right now in the West?

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

DC OKC, Oakland,

00:11:30--> 00:11:38

Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Oklahoma rent. So Kevin Durant's. And who's the lowest when they sign

00:11:41--> 00:12:01

the bobcat, whatever, let's say the first best and the lowest can the bobcat or whatever, it could go to Oklahoma, and it's a arcade game is canceled. You guys are just a bunch of losers to use, like look at your record. There's no need to play the game because it's very obvious Kevin Durant is gonna dunk on every one of you guys. Okay, so game is chance can they do that?

00:12:02--> 00:12:52

their fear, right? A lot is the most just a loss of penalty. No, listen, this and this and this is the point, point number two, okay, there are only two, Allah will test you and will because He will judge you according to your actions and things in this life, and not according to his previous knowledge of you. One more time, one more time, very important. A lot tests you so he can judge you according to your actions and sayings. Not according to his previous knowledge about you. You can go on the Day of Judgment had there been no life, meet Allah and Allah says sorry, you're going to help. Whoa, come on. That's not fair. That's not fair. He didn't try me didn't test me. So to avoid

00:12:52--> 00:13:32

these kind of sentences, Allah would give them the life and they would live life. Then Allah subhanaw taala you would ask a very important question, brother. Why are you seeing it's so dangerous fitness are so dangerous for also two reasons. tests and tribulations are very serious. You cannot take it lightly. You cannot just be so easily distracted every time someone walks in. Because we're talking about fitness. And this someone walking in is a fitness. This is a clear live example of a fitness right now the next person that walks in we will see what happens here. Is that clear? You will know a person to walk this is why it's a fitness I'm not gonna say what line but the

00:13:32--> 00:13:54

question is, how will you react to it? Will you look at that person and completely zone away and fly and think about your honeymoon? And think of the wedding dress you saw yesterday? which you're not gonna be probably getting in another 10 years but like scrolling down I think that wedding dress Yeah. Are you ready to get married sister? No, I was it was a long time from now. So why are you wasting your time checking wedding dresses.

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

This is another fitness supplemental law. So let's see what happens again. Make sure when I think how to sort the the camera

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

no problem.

00:14:04--> 00:14:16

Number one reason why fitness is very dangerous number one, because fitness is presented not your eyes not to your ears only but to your

00:14:17--> 00:14:39

hearts trust to align sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said God will fit a new island fit and are presented test and tribulations are presented to the heart to the heart and look with the Prophet use the word you know that's the best word to be used because that's revelation from Allah displaycal Quran is revealed to

00:14:40--> 00:14:40

have

00:14:42--> 00:14:46

revealed getting and transmitted from a lot to gibreel proselytizing.

00:14:47--> 00:14:54

Then also masala Salim said for au Kelvin and Cara hi whenever a test or calamity comes to the heart.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

He didn't say to the person to the heart and that heart rejects it that

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

The lamps origin.

00:15:03--> 00:16:00

The identical flipper of the hearts hold my heart firm on your religion, to be logical was refuge from the devil. You see a person walking by opposite gender very attractive anything like that oh who is the fitna if that person and Callaghan avoided, Nikita has been eaten by a white, beautiful and pure.white.is placed on the heart. And if that person or Sheba during that fitness absorbs the fitness, Nikita v lb nuke that one so that black dot will be placed on the heart until there only be two kinds of hearts no third. The first heart is a white and pure heart. That no fitna can any longer mess up with that sister, brother. The heart is so firm and strong, purely Wait, that no

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

fitna can come and the Prophet said and Phil medema de Sena, what you will, as long as this person lives all her life or his life. Me Allah make us amongst.

00:16:11--> 00:16:17

And if you said I mean, then watch out. There's another level over the fitness.

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

But we'll keep it another time. We mentioned that briefly and other times.

00:16:23--> 00:17:06

And if that person every time there's a fitness that comes they just absorb it. You know? I give up man. She's like, look where I live. Look at this area. Look at St. Patrick's Day, people wearing many shorts are green and the beer and the wine around that. Look where I live. Look at my high school girl and in front of me a girl in the behind the girl on my right, a girl on my left, look at them naked. How can I be patient, forget it. absorb and absorb and absorb. an exam is stolen from the teacher. You hear an announcement that the exam has been stolen. fitna comes to you and be part of this, give us some cash. And it is a fitna that come Will you absorb it and not have trust in a

00:17:06--> 00:17:38

loss of parents data and pay them money and get the exam. If that person keeps absorbing the heart will turn into black kelkoo, the Maha Mudra here, that's a profit words can lose image here. You know, does that mean? It's like a heart that becomes so dark? so rigid, so rough? And the Prophet says, imagine the heart It's already dark and black and horrible. It's placed into a cup and the cup is

00:17:40--> 00:17:41

upside down on a plate

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

in the Prophet said

00:17:46--> 00:17:59

yeah, yeah, tomorrow. You tell them anything that is good. They ignore you don't even hear you. As sincere hand it extended to that person. Let me help you out. You look like in trouble. You look like you're in love and deeply in love there. But to go into Xena. Let me help you out.

00:18:01--> 00:18:33

in that zone helaas. They just absorb every fitna while a young Cuban Karana. Just they don't take any good. Any advice? They do not see anything wrong. And I'm sure you know people like that. Come on. I've known her since we were in kindergarten. She's just like my sister. Oh, really? She's like my sister, brother. Look, look. I have no emotions. See, I am I look look, bro. If she was even nude in front of me. I have no feelings. I will cover her. Well, my brother said, if she was naked in front of me. I'll just cover her.

00:18:35--> 00:18:39

Yeah, you'll probably do that and cover her and then smiled back and I'm talking to men by the way. I don't know. But

00:18:41--> 00:18:45

I just don't want to confuse people then. I'm just talking to men just to just make it clear. I'm

00:18:48--> 00:18:55

just What do you mean? There's the brother and sister. Okay, we go to the movies. We watch the movie. We have one seat between us. I take the popcorn.

00:18:56--> 00:19:01

And then she takes the popcorn and brotherbrother I remind her to say Bismillah

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

Bismillah Allahu

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

alayhi.

00:19:10--> 00:19:26

Wa and much and much and fitness to fitness. That person doesn't see any thing wrong in Sri bahawa minha except what their desire, so they desire something is available. Is it there? Yes, it's Helen.

00:19:27--> 00:19:42

I want this is available. No. Okay, Tara. That's the Prophet towards he will go with whatever he desires. May Allah protect us. The second reason and you can notice by now that it comes to the heart, and let's give even a lot more realistic example.

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

When a person goes online, I'll just get take that example.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Watch watches, whatever he or she watches and deep inside the heart. I'm talking to the people with hearts, not the people with black hearts and May Allah make us all amongst that these hearts that are so white.

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

and beautiful and solid and not fit neck and harmless. I mean,

00:20:05--> 00:20:12

when a fitna comes in that person is online, doing whatever wrong they're doing whatever wrong. Just think about the example.

00:20:13--> 00:20:40

They think the moment they exited that window, they closed that window that the fitna has been eliminated, has exited as well, you're wrong. The Prophet said fitna comes to the heart. So you would watch an adult Harlem scene. And you think that once you exit that window, you're done. You tell me that you're not, I'm pretty sure you don't tell me I'm pretty sure it's not done.

00:20:42--> 00:20:55

You would go to your bed, and you turned off the lights, you turned off the computer, and you went to bed, and you put your hand just like that. And then you close your eyes. But guess what that video plays again,

00:20:56--> 00:21:21

the video plays again, and you see the same exact scenes again, with audio and all the noise and everything else going around. You hear it and you start getting obsessed. And the ones that would listen to music, whatever it is, even if it was for on whatever it is, you would go to bed and you would hear what you used to always hear. There are no more headphones, but it went to your heart.

00:21:22--> 00:21:25

We need to protect ourselves. May Allah protect us. I mean,

00:21:26--> 00:21:48

the second reason why it's so dangerous is because due to its abundance, it's everywhere fitna right now it's everywhere. It just unbelievable. You walk from one class, the other class section to another section, you walk, you pick up your books, the girl right beside you, she's wearing whatever she's wearing. you are imagine how are you doing today? I was the villain ship.

00:21:49--> 00:22:02

And then she comes another one opens your locker like if you want to lower your gaze, and you see a poster on the floor, come on night dance, high school, dance, whatever, Holy Name Come on. And then you walk out with a villa and another partner comes sort of door.

00:22:03--> 00:22:42

How's that fitting? So the door? Are you going to skip the Salah to go for a class and then the answer is going to come and you missed completely. Another fitna comes, are you thankful that Allah has made you patient? Because Fitzalan good and bad. And as you walk are you thankful that Allah Subhana Allah gave you these legs which are walking with the eyes, which you've seen with you being thankful as you go and you see in your biology class, something in the embryo and the baby and how it's made and all that stuff? This is a panel like this is a fitting they're going to be thankful are going to doubt a Lost Planet Allah does not really exist. That's the question didn't have to fit

00:22:42--> 00:23:07

in the abundance after abundance and look what the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, he said in how we talked about every prophet came and mentioned whatever is good to people to follow and he mentioned whatever is evil, so people are warned and away from it. Then he said that the best and the best of times are the ones that are in the past and the worst of times are the ones of full of fitness and Bella are the ones that coming up. Then he said

00:23:08--> 00:23:27

was at a G o fitness, cooling movement, underlined the word mean, and the believer will say when the fitness approaches, what will they say? This is gonna destroy me. This is going to destroy me. This is going to destroy me that fitness knocked me out because they know they cannot handle this.

00:23:29--> 00:24:09

Then that fitna will move away. Whatever happens Allah knows best of the results. They they overcome the fitness they lose. Then another fitna comes the like no no heavy heavy. No this fitna. This one was gonna knock me out. This one is gonna destroy me heavy more nicotine. And that frickin hour passed by and another fitna comes which is bigger than the first and the second Nicole this one not for sure. This one I'm not No no, I cannot handle this. And then it will pass and a bigger one comes and a bigger one comes. The Sahaba got so freaked out. We said Yasser Allah, when will this time happen? When will this time happen? It also in LA? He said

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

Phil harj.

00:24:13--> 00:24:18

Does hi hobby said and when is a large? He said

00:24:19--> 00:24:28

when the person no longer feels safe and secured with the ones he or she is sitting with.

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

Let me say in Arabic hain Allah yamano. Raja do jalisa when the person sitting no longer feel safe and secure for the people around and while logging. I believe this occurs. You sit with the group of people. You want to say something you don't know. Do they have a big mouth? Will they just tell people what they're telling them? Do you have to tell them say well, they won't tell anyone. You have to do this. You just don't feel secured anymore? Is she really seeing the truth to me? Is she really lying that you really go there?

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

He's no more.

00:25:03--> 00:25:34

This is the time this is the time so Panama may not protect us. I mean terrible. I mean, the Prophet told us that the fitna will come, and anyone that wants to seek fitna I want to meet fitna they think they're all COVID they think they're the best. They think they're Arnold. You know what, I'm the strongest person in the world. Give me whatever fitna I will overcome it. The Prophet told you don't do that. The Prophet told you don't test yourself Do not test your Eman did not go and seek fitness. Some already failed.

00:25:36--> 00:25:43

Don't go and seek fitness. Because you do not know the state of your heart when the fitness occurs.

00:25:45--> 00:26:01

One time beside my house when I told you there's a virus in the house and every time they go crazy. I wonder I'm like why are they doing this so loud is horrible. I pick up my car I drive to them. I want to see this fitness. Yeah, stupid united Yes, stupid.

00:26:02--> 00:26:19

I wish I made this happen before because I learned by the We will do this either way more than you guys way more. But the question is, do I apply it? Allah Allah May Allah not make me the bridge, which you guys go over from the hell to Jenna and that bridge falls semi.

00:26:21--> 00:26:33

So I left my house I'm like let me see what they're doing. Oh, let me go give Nazi highly advise that people are you serious? Okay, I dry my foot escape. We angry with my hoodie for going on like a hoodie.

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

And I drive the red lights. A girl comes up to me.

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

I rolled down the window and she puts her hands like that. Like hey, cutie.

00:26:46--> 00:26:49

I know a lie in my heart. Allah knows best how many beats?

00:26:52--> 00:26:59

She's okay. And she's drunk. Any command drunk semi passionate, uncomfortable logic outcomes. So that means you will not remember anything what you do with her.

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

I'm serious. She sounds like you remember anything was going with him? And then she said, tonight is my 17th birthday.

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

You know from the chill with us.

00:27:11--> 00:27:23

Isn't that fitna? It's a horrible fitna and hamdulillah that traffic light became green. And some of the bags like Let's go Come on. Come on. I'm like 100.

00:27:24--> 00:27:28

Because one law he I have no idea what I would have done.

00:27:30--> 00:27:36

Don't go and seek fitness. The Prophet told you move away from them. Dodge Dodge, go away, do the matrix move.

00:27:38--> 00:27:38

And

00:27:39--> 00:27:53

show everything other bullets just move away from them. I'm serious. Move away from the property when the Messiah comes when the Antichrist come, go see him. Don't go see him. They taught us how to have the best of people that they know about me and you all miskeen

00:27:55--> 00:28:01

because you did not know the state of your heart. When that fitna comes, you might be solved one day and the other day you might feel more protected.

00:28:04--> 00:28:26

There are two kinds of fitness It's yummy tempted to to somehow because fitness is every moment you either every Your life is divided into moments, and you have only two kinds of moments no third, a moment of a blessing which you should think a lot and a moment of sadness or calamity or attacks which you should be patient.

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

Two kinds of

00:28:29--> 00:28:46

fitna to shower the fitna of worldly desires dunya and money opposite gender status, high marks society like appreciation and like whatever it is like reputation. And the other kind of fitness is fitness.

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

As

00:28:53--> 00:28:53

a shuba

00:28:54--> 00:29:03

subpanel, the first fitna is desires. The other one is the ambiguous unclear doubtful things specifically in Islam.

00:29:05--> 00:29:11

Examples of fitness and the worldly desires Whoa, whoa. We mentioned so many examples already.

00:29:12--> 00:29:41

But 17 year old acuity brother and all that stuff. You walk in there's a job with money and wealth. A lot that says Zenith Boucher Howard when he said all of us who memorize it say Zenit in nasty horrible shower demeanor. Is it with benina was penalty ontology meaning that heavy will should not he will hide in Massawa material anatomy will have that liquid metallic hierarchy dunia will

00:29:44--> 00:29:45

follow

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

below endo. hessenthaler

00:29:50--> 00:30:00

Allah tells you a big list of things that what he desires number one he mentioned was woman an opposite gender opposite gender power. This is a serious fitna especially in our time

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

There's not a single video clip or a music clip, except that there's an opposite gender that has to do whatever they do. You know what one of the reasons why Lady Gaga is so famous. why she's unbelievably famous is because usually usually

00:30:15--> 00:30:19

it's the guy singing, and the girl acts, whatever I whatever she does.

00:30:21--> 00:30:40

But Lady Gaga switched it. I think I also do and the guys do it to me, like in terms of movements and stuff. That's why the people like this is not uncommon even that this believers, even the people that are just corrupted, they're like, Oh, this is different than Nicki Minaj comes in she copies and she keeps changing the hair color green thing.

00:30:41--> 00:31:00

May Allah protect us Don't ask me how I knew are very important point is because in the NBA All Star game, I was having dinner with my wife at Applebee's. And there was a screen right in front of me the NBA All Star game. So who comes Nicki Minaj she's going crazy. My dad is like, like I always have a law.

00:31:03--> 00:31:10

takeaway takeaway. Moves holla fit, natural fit, and I'm going to have dinner with my wife fitna right there, boy.

00:31:11--> 00:31:16

But he's not put any alcohol or pork in my foot. fitna, my daughter looking fit now.

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

My wife is like really looking at

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

x and she's like, do you know what she said? But funny. She's like this whole time you're looking at the screen. I thought I'm looking at the same screen, but it was different channels.

00:31:33--> 00:31:40

But I have tried to avoid as much as possible. So perfect and after fitna, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:31:42--> 00:31:47

and before that, you know what let me ask you guys another question. Let me see your knowledge about the deen and your survival factors.

00:31:49--> 00:31:55

What is the primary test the primary test for the people of authority?

00:31:59--> 00:31:59

What is

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

See? Woman

00:32:04--> 00:32:11

woman what's the primary test for us? Woman I still say that

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

the Jan we didn't come yet

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

money

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

the profit loss and said I'm not worried.

00:32:24--> 00:32:55

I'm not worried that you guys will be poor. I am not worried about that. In the action and madonia I'm worried that the dunya will open its doors for you. And money will flow just like how it flew to the people in the past and they were racing towards that money until they were competing with one another until they got destroyed that's what I'm worried about. The province worried about money and supplemental law you can even see the young brothers and sisters when they play basketball what would they say?

00:32:57--> 00:32:59

Money Money

00:33:02--> 00:33:03

subhanaw taala change

00:33:05--> 00:33:08

in the score they have to give it back to the person right change

00:33:09--> 00:33:13

money money just obsessed Brother What school you're going to after high school

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

like like what you mean like what university and he do I have to

enter How can you How can you just make it to life and how can you make money? I suppose that's the mind that I'm saying go to university go to college enjoy your life handler study. But is it just for money?

00:33:32--> 00:33:44

Do you know how many people ask a question I am pretty sure you agree. Well what's the most job that makes more money most money right doctor and then they're like I want to go become a medical doctor. I hate every class but just because it's a lot of money afterwards. The bleach

00:33:46--> 00:33:47

is a political law.

00:33:48--> 00:33:59

Well, let us think about inshallah, but Sandy I inshallah inshallah, I will listen to your lecture online. And now besides Money, money, money supply a lot and that was one way some of lohani was seldom.

00:34:00--> 00:34:02

He told us

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

fear.

00:34:05--> 00:34:08

Watch out, be careful.

00:34:09--> 00:34:30

Open your eyes. Take care of what it could do. Nia, be careful of this dunya of this life. There's a lot of illusions brothers and sisters. The Prophet said that statement after he said, Allah has chosen you to take care of this world and of the oma is delivered.

00:34:31--> 00:34:46

dunia and what was the next statement he said which is the third statement in that Heidi? What? Oh, Virginia, he specified one thing you guys need to watch out for? What?

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

Nice woman

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

everything in this life.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

And similarly the woman should watch out for the opposite gender.

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

And by the way, the fitness that you girls have towards us is way beyond your imagination.

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

As a

00:35:09--> 00:35:15

piano we go to Gen ninja all of us and you see like the chart how the fitness effects that you're like, Wow.

00:35:16--> 00:35:27

I never knew I wasn't so ugly. Anyone like I really made that guy go nuts. Oh my god. Yes, he had the capabilities and that's a

00:35:28--> 00:35:56

fitna so use it in the best of ways brothers and sisters. Not a single person in this room not a single person in this room except that they are beautiful. I want you to know that will law he not a single one of you guys is ugly. Can you stop thinking like that? Am I so ugly? Especially the girls like just please I quit it. The second repent to Allah subhanaw taala. Do you really think this matches I look ugly? I don't look fat. Yeah, don't worry.

00:35:58--> 00:36:06

This some of the scholars have said and you look the fitna of men to women. They said the fitna which that men received from the woman

00:36:07--> 00:36:29

is that they feel a lot of glitzy bland sexual stuff, right? Just sexually lust. I just want to touch on just this and that the woman fitna, which we received from the guy is that she wants to be the center of attention. She wants every guy in class to think she's the most beautiful girl in the world. That's like, oh, does he like me type? Okay, check next, brother.

00:36:30--> 00:36:40

Okay, what did you like green, blue, or whatever? No, I mean, and that's the fifth novel, and they just want to have the spotlight. And the man is brand new, and it's like, just come along, and that's it. Just one person is enough for me. So Panama.

00:36:41--> 00:36:56

No, there's no such thing. There's no such thing as I don't have any emotions towards the other gender. And it can be possible that there are emotions towards the same gender. Yes, it's possible emotions. But don't go wear a purple shirt.

00:36:58--> 00:37:12

Okay, yes, it's possible. And this is a fitness. And I might have said have you had emotion when it happened to people? somewhere around here? Okay. They said I have feelings towards that person. I'm like, Oh my goodness. Don't send that email again to me.

00:37:14--> 00:37:42

What should I do then we send her a link that this is a fitness challenge testing us. So you do your best to seek knowledge refugees. This is an exit sign I'm telling you survival. Will Allah help me Oh Allah protect me. Oh Allah you sincerely Humble yourself to Allah helped me or Allah, take and extract these emotions away from my heart. Oh Allah, please help Allah. you humble yourself. There was a lot of stuff to help us up 10 minutes, please.

00:37:43--> 00:37:45

Then upon alone, it comes to money.

00:37:47--> 00:37:52

There's one brother who had this beautiful job, like over a six digit salary, Mashallah.

00:37:54--> 00:38:12

When his supervisor changed, there's only three positions similar to his that's how big of a shot he is. Okay. When a supervisor changed, the new supervisor came and she noticed or he noticed I wasn't sure what the gender is that he that men leaves every time specifically for an hour on

00:38:13--> 00:38:47

Friday for Gemma. So supervisor said talk to that person said under the new height supervisor as you as you know, as we talked before, and I want to tell you that it's absolutely not fair for you to take one hour off during rush hour on a Friday. Don't do that. So we need to stop it. It's sorry, this is part of my religion. I cannot stop praying Friday prayers on that specific time and take that one hour off. She told them he told them then do not be surprised if you found a slip on your desk telling you you're out. It's just not fair.

00:38:48--> 00:39:25

So that's what I fit in or not. That's a series fitna fit enough money I'm making so much money a family and this and that. I got rent I got this. I got the payment for tuition for my children. So he said I was thinking and thinking that What should I do? And then she told me Just don't be surprised and the thing is ringing in his ears. Don't be surprised if you see the slip on your table, back and forth, back and forth with that fitness, fighting that fitness and trying to seek Allah's help and support and seeking knowledge with the knowledge because if he had no knowledge he would think that leading gym is okay. He told her, do whatever you wish a

00:39:26--> 00:39:45

few days later. He gets a call. Come to my office. Is it okay this is Miss Miller online make a speech and demo palatable Palooza called ballerina or flipper of the hearts. Hold my heart trim on your religion, just making Tao or let me be strong make me firm make me firm because the fitna had you pass it. You're a man who go up or down.

00:39:46--> 00:39:57

If you pass a fitna, your demand goes up your personal fitness, demand goes up and up and up and up and up so high that no fitna can harm you. So he went and she told him

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

I noticed as I'm sitting

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

teaching about Islam, that there are five daily prayers. So you don't only take an hour off on Fridays, but you also take some time every single day, five times a day. She said, is that really that serious in your religion? He said, Yes, it is. He's getting ready and just to pack his stuff and get the box and she told him I understand your religion. I respect the commitment which you can show to religion. This shows some serious determination. This is awesome. You know what? You're allowed not just to go play Jamaat, but you're allowed to pray your five daily prayers in the masjid will lie no joke and this is our time. How is the man will go, his email skyrocket

00:40:44--> 00:40:49

told us what Allah told him when the people shouted to the Sahaba in

00:40:51--> 00:41:03

fact shalom that people the Arabian Peninsula, everybody has gathered to kill all the Muslims and finish them up. What was the reaction of the Sahaba

00:41:04--> 00:41:29

in the naza caja Morocco Allah says the next word for that the homie man there amen when skyrocket, they're gonna kill you amen skyrockets, because they had the knowledge, they learned they were hanging out with good people that don't even have to have spoon alone me lucky. They were men. They were men that has been a loner kid. We put our trust in Allah, Allah, Allah is the best of Trustees. Can you be like that?

00:41:30--> 00:42:11

Can you be like that? You can inshallah you seek a less refugee seek Allah support. And Allah Subhana Allah will protect you. I mean, Allah protect all of our brothers and sisters, the young and the old. And online knows why Allah knows that our age that tests and tribulations are so much and so hard, Allah knows. That's why now you understand, when Allah revealed through through life and limb, that amongst the people will be under the shade of the throne of Allah when there's no shade accepted shade, when the sun is only one mile away from your head, and people are sweating to their nose to their eyes to their mouth to their knees. And so people are drowning from their sweat, who

00:42:11--> 00:42:57

is under the shade. young, beautiful people like you that maintain their Eman and Dean during this age. Was Shaban nessa pietila a young boy or girl that was raised solid to the deen and how beautiful it is to find people like that. And will lie if it wasn't for the sake of fitna. And when you want to praise someone very important note when you want to praise someone. If you think that that is a fitna, right. So I tell you my sha Allah says the way you cover yourself with a gentleman just amazing so panela What a beautiful dour machine you are. Okay, that can be a bit nutty right? But if I knew if I told you this, your Eman will be shaky shaky and then you you drop it and your

00:42:57--> 00:43:07

mind will go down I will not compliment you Is that clear? So did not praise people or compliment them that you think they'll be affected in their heart sincerity will be shaken Exactly.

00:43:08--> 00:43:23

So I believe Alan knows best that our mmm Mashallah May Allah protect him and make him solid? I think if I praise Him Mashallah you have a beautiful voice. I don't think his sincerity like magic Lex my voice. Allah Subhana Allah magic

00:43:25--> 00:43:30

is nothing. It's absolutely nothing. All he cares about is what Allah thinks of his voice.

00:43:31--> 00:43:57

Is it sincere or not? Not Is it beautiful or not? Allah does not judge you according to shape and your look and your skin color? No. He judges you according to your laws consciousness in your heart and your awareness of Allah. Allah is looking at me with this click. The second kind of fitness is fitness to shoe bohat the fitness of doubtful things and this is worse than everything we mentioned.

00:43:59--> 00:44:42

Fitness issue bohat. We said doubtful matters in terms of the dean. Now these days that doubtfulness we go through with our brothers and sisters is not about his KFC, how long would highlight and now we have reached beyond this level. Now we get emails. How can Allah know everything in the future? That Allah really created us? And question after question that had someone failed this fitna what happens they will become a catheter right? If they say Allah did not create this or this and that correct. But if someone falls in the fitness of shower that desirable fitness women, you know what? You slept with? 100 women Okay, let's be blunt. You start with 100 women, you repent to Allah

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

sincerely ALLAH forgive you, inshallah.

00:44:47--> 00:45:00

But even if you said was 100 women and you did not repent, and you firmly believed in La Jolla, la, la, and you had some Eman in your heart. At the end of the day, you might be tortured. Like you

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

Or tomorrow, Allah might forgive you. But she'll go to general.

00:45:03--> 00:45:09

And I know many parents and stuff and many promoters like don't tell them that stuff and you have to know this. At the end of the day, you're going to

00:45:10--> 00:45:12

fully believe in that much contact.

00:45:15--> 00:45:29

But if you once were doubtful, Allah does not know the future, Allah, God knows things as it happens, then is that person Muslim? Will they ever put the gender 90 million years? Clear.

00:45:31--> 00:45:36

And I want to mention a fitna, and this is an advice for all brothers and sisters in this room.

00:45:37--> 00:45:39

An email was sent.

00:45:41--> 00:45:53

I cannot tell you, I cannot express to you the thing. I cannot express to you the words that I want to say. I have no words to tell you. You can't even I can tell from the email you can tell from the tone, right?

00:45:55--> 00:45:59

Like I have no words to say. And I feel so shameful to say the following.

00:46:00--> 00:46:21

As I was walking in my house, and I know brother, he talks so much about adult videos and stuff. And I'm sure but you say this because you know this is afflicted to many of the brothers. And I tell you yes over 90% Easy, easy, easy, easy. She said as I'm walking in my house, I noticed my brother

00:46:22--> 00:46:29

and not most and there's only for like four or five little boys or kids with no problem massassi up pie so you can get what I'm trying to say.

00:46:30--> 00:46:36

My brother was watching such and such video while doing the private act.

00:46:37--> 00:47:20

That sisters saw that with her own eyes. I tell the brothers fear a loss penalty. If you cannot push the fitna away from you at least don't present it to the people if you cannot leave horrible music and cursing and so on at least don't make the other ears hear it if you cannot stop loving the opposite gender in some way don't share with the people your beautiful experiences Is that clear? She was hurt and you will be held accountable for that and she went through some fitness she went through some fitness and the Allah allowed her to overcome it I mean it'll be I mean because you know that if she was grossed out to hell Miss Forgive me for my language and she can not handle that

00:47:20--> 00:47:38

thing anymore. She might not even want to get maybe she can no longer trust me naturally that because for what they're doing. So watch out from the fitness a lot parent Allah will test you with. May Allah protect our brothers and sisters will lie. There's so many stories just like beyond what you can think upon. Beyond where you can think it is so much.

00:47:39--> 00:47:57

Time told us Do not go to immigration. Do not go to people that read your poem. Do not go to people that were sorcery and stuff like that. Do not go because if you would go you had the fitna of Chabot hat, you will have this fitness do not go. I was in the airplane.

00:47:59--> 00:48:08

The same airplane actually about the girl and the guy that the doctor and the engineer and he's like, I can read palms. He's like, let me read your palm and I cannot wait to read my palm. No.

00:48:10--> 00:48:17

Is it quiet? I'm like, don't worry about it. I'm fine. I'm good to handle no worry about this. So he talked to the doctor. Oh my god.

00:48:18--> 00:48:22

You have this and that the Prophet said listen carefully.

00:48:23--> 00:48:29

If you were to go to anyone similar to this, reading the coffee engine

00:48:31--> 00:48:39

reading the poem, reading Scorpio cancer my horoscope Oh my God, I'm gonna find my beautiful husband today.

00:48:41--> 00:49:04

These are tests but that's what they do. If you just go into these things, a lot will not accept your prayers for 14 nights for 14 nights. That if you did not did not believe in it. So just like for the fun of it. Okay, just read about no I don't believe because I know you're lying on the street. If you've done that 14 nights or salon is not accepted. You're still homeless. And you still have to pray.

00:49:05--> 00:49:22

But if you went there, and the magician or a sad or like Kevin told you this, this and that and you're like, oh, he must have sensing the truth because he no no is right. I do have two brothers and two sisters. Yes, yes. I do have a mother and father he's right. Yeah.

00:49:24--> 00:49:31

Allah said if you believe that future which he mentioned, then you have left and deviated away from Islam.

00:49:32--> 00:49:39

So Pamela fitna to Super hurt me a lot protect us from its Pamela doesn't have as the profit or loss or less.

00:49:40--> 00:49:56

How? Why why why so let's take very nicely respected like why not so long is the Shaheed The one who fights with sick of Allah subhanaw taala is the only person that diversity that we know does not get punished in the grave. Who knows the answer?

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

One more time. Why is it a Shaheed

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

The one that fights with current data are on the path of Allah subhanaw taala and have sincere intention to die as a martyr. Why is that person not punished in the grave? You know?

00:50:13--> 00:50:13

We don't know.

00:50:14--> 00:50:20

Okay, we know what the prophet said. He said he didn't even answer. He said enough.

00:50:21--> 00:50:29

He said, It's enough of a fitna for the believer to see the shining side of a sword.

00:50:30--> 00:51:14

In order there's like the sun, and you have a sword that's metal. And you see that the shining part of it like the sun, like side effect, or whatever it is, but reflection, reflection, the light, he said, this is a fitness and that's enough of a fitness for them not to be punished enough. So the Prophet is aware, it's upon Allah. May Allah protect us I mean, that'll mean other things which you have to do you seek a last refuge. The Prophet said, a prophet order you to our to Billahi min. And Phaeton, the Prophet told you Tao was a belemnite, and seek Allah's refuge from tests and trials. So let's together land in fitten Allah who protect us or protect us from fitten alameen wa button,

00:51:14--> 00:51:25

which is apparent to us and which is not apparent. Another thing which we didn't mention in terms of survivals is also why some of them told my young wife one lie I love you.

00:51:27--> 00:51:32

From the prophet will lie I love you. He has a brother and a sister when he meets you will lie in your head book

00:51:33--> 00:51:36

will lie price tag priceless mathematic price

00:51:37--> 00:51:57

and tells you a lie in your head booking you know Allah, and she's all the struggles which he went through in 2012 and 11 and 10 and the future and he told my eyes and he said he said, I'll give up my mom and father for you because how much you loved them in the Prophet told them in your life. I give you advice, Omar, would you guys take it either the young man, you just take it,

00:51:58--> 00:51:58

he said

00:51:59--> 00:52:01

after every pair

00:52:02--> 00:52:41

of lahoma and Allah the cricket, cricket, Hosni abetik Oh Allah assist me in worshiping you correctly. Anjelica mentioning you and thanking you and worshiping you correctly. Don't forget to say that after every prayer, then also like some of mahadi would send them said the happy one is the one that avoids a fitting in, in asylum in Geneva. But then he said it three times the happy person is the one that is away from the happy person is the one that avoids fitten. The Happy one is the one that moves away from the fifth and he tells you once, twice, and thrice, Allah May Allah make us amongst the one that are protected from the fifth and immunoblotted mean
