ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to follow the Quran and Sunnah Amina, but I mean, I like to also ask Allah subhana wa tada to make every single one of you who attended the hookah from the beginning. May Allah make you the first group that intergender mirabello are learning this the way you honored Allah your the way you are this act of worship, as it also Elias Allahu alayhi wa sallam said in authentic hadith when we go to agenda we go into groups is not one batch. And he says the first group will have the beauty as a full moon May Allah granted that duty and followed also Elias Allah lolly was seldom like to also think every single one of you by Allah. Since the moment I have

00:00:41--> 00:01:18

parked the car. And all the way here I have seen nothing but smiles. Does that mean low hairline? May Allah honor you? This is the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it's been many karate Allah and he says, I have never seen it also Elias and except that he was the most person that ever smiled. People see it awkward. People see it weird. But the prophet SAW Selim is neither awkward nor weird. He's in the middle path. salallahu alayhi wasallam. With this being said, brothers and sisters, in one of my previous jobs, I do engineering as a full time occupation. without mentioning the company, I made a pretty big mistake, there wasn't a cause a large financial

00:01:18--> 00:02:01

loss. I was stressed out nervous and anxious. I was instructed to go meet a specific person who might be able to solve the issue. On my way to him, someone stops me and asks magic, where are you going? I told you I'm going to meet so and so as you might have heard of the problem that I caused. He said, Oh, you're going to meet this person. This person you're about to meet is also known as a very nice guy. Before moving further with a story, just by knowing this man is also known as the nice guy. No doubt made me feel comfortable and you will agree to that, that this man will not make fun of me Will genuinely help me in all these beautiful feelings. Why? Just because this man is also

00:02:01--> 00:02:11

known as the nice guy. With this being said and Allah is the best examples. How do you feel when you are told? A law is also known as

00:02:12--> 00:02:32

the one who responds to your call Whenever you call upon him? Allah, Allah Mooji, the one who gives you whatever is best for you whenever he asked him. If this does not make your heart rest to a certain extent, then there might be a serious deficiency in understanding who Allah subhanaw taala is, brothers and sisters, all of us are poor and weak.

00:02:33--> 00:03:12

And we tend to complain to others about our state hoping they may fulfill our needs. And it's one time we record ourselves with a camera, how we complain to our brothers and sisters. Genuinely, we will be so amazed at how focused and sincere and sometimes even cry when we complain to others. And there might be something nothing wrong with it as long as you don't cross the limits. But you know what's wrong, is when we are in a state of surges and frustration. The closest position you can ever be to Allah as a prophet of Allah so Allah you will send him I said, when you are in front of Allah Al Karim, the most generous Allah, honey, the rich and self sufficient. The one when you want

00:03:12--> 00:03:29

something to happen, he says configure can be and there is and that state, we're not as focused. We're not as passionate. We're not as sincere. As if a law is the poor and stingy and our friend is a rich and generous. We seek Allah's refuge from that understanding. immunoblotting

00:03:30--> 00:04:11

Allah says in the Quran wa Mercado de la hakoda. Allah said people have not appraised have not appreciated Allah the way Allah deserves to be appreciated that Allah says, well, although Jamie and kadota, who yom Okayama was sent to Malawi yet to be Amina subhanho wa Taala, I'm making sure the Quran then Allah says, since you don't appreciate Allah that Allah tells you how strong he is. He says a lot of foods they have been unfolds the earth. And Allah says I'm free from all those associated with me La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, in hopes of this hotbar even though it might be 25 minutes or so. But I believe whenever I give a talk, and he should sit in any hot bind

00:04:11--> 00:04:48

any reminder with that mentality that this may change my life. This is how it also Alliance, an alliance that I'm preached and that's also a life lesson. I'm taught that people to behave. People have changed not from a heart but only from a statement. A man became a Muslim when the Prophet began by said by saying, in Alhamdulillah, Muhammad who want to stay in the middle, the man who was an Muslim, he's it's such a beautiful statement. This is definitely coming from a prophet. Not just that, there are people who became Muslim from a smile Allahu Akbar, but also la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam walked into Medina, and one of the bar of the Jewish Jewish people was sitting on the roof.

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

And he was looking is like, well, I had la set up a local bar, this is the face my I swear by Allah. It's not the face of a lie and became Muslim. So sit Open your hearts, maybe some words you hear

Muhammad wa Allahu Akbar? Well, I'm worried on my side, not his side. I'm

00:05:43--> 00:06:13

worried whether I will make drama, whether I will put the effort whether I will be sincere, whether I will take the action, I know for a fact if I may draw was sincere and take action, Allah will definitely respond. Look, I live in a project called de la and he understood what does it mean that Allah is also known as a rough man. He said, When Yama Yama comes, and let's say Allah gives me the option for him to judge me or for my parents to judge me. I will choose a law over my parents that anybody here was a child. I appreciate this example.

00:06:14--> 00:06:34

Why? Because I know Allah has more mercy towards me than my parents a lot. But May Allah Allah was to understand His mercy. I mean, that'll be I mean, with this being said, brothers and sisters, we have to understand the concept of law, not just from the etiquettes that you should fulfill which is wonderful.

00:13:01--> 00:13:45

the first hedge I've made in the 70s I went to some sort of a minivan or a minibus and then there were rows parallel to each other. But the last row was connected. There's no space where you people walk through in the last row there was a very old lady that was squished very tight situation position. And I looked at her and I felt bad for her. And I told a couple of husband and wife if the husband can go back and switch with this old lady so that they can relax and have more space.

And it didn't even work it out with them. Because respectful person will take it no problem. Then how dare we make dua to Allah like will he accept or not? He will accept and he said don't ever make dua and say inshallah

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

Until I put the action

00:21:58--> 00:22:30

you have to take the means whenever you make drag to Allah otherwise the item that they said if you ask Allah for something, and you're not taking action that is disrespect to our last time. How would you feel when one of your family members sees you like yeah, I'm sitting in the masjid all day long all day long is that ganic I'm making a referral to get me a job, work on your resume, work on your CV customize at work goes door to door, knock on the doors, and send the message as long as you take the means. But you just think done Oh no. They're really angry one time for those who know the story. He came to the message during dinner time which is usually that's when people usually work.

00:22:30--> 00:23:12

Is that what he is doing? He's really making a lot he got his stick. He's like Allah doesn't make it rain golden silver in the summer lol total they have one effort to find a job co production and that's what we have to behave with. In conclusion. One time there was a brother who was very committed to solid very committed I'm a witness to this. A Blizzard thunderstorm back in Canada you always come to the mission wonderful brother Mashallah. I would drive sometimes similar sidewalk I go pick him up. He has no car, no bus pass, no bike, nothing. All of a sudden the brothers stop showing up to them as [???]. I go to his house, knock on the door. And he opens the door. I say

00:23:12--> 00:23:32

Salaam Alaikum. Then he curses is what the mentioned do you want? I'm really confused. very dedicated person committed to the message and that's your response is wajib saying Salaam is soon responding is an obligation. Don't tell me I hate that brother have issues No, no issue with Islam. You have to respond back to Allah allow us to follow the sooner. And

00:23:34--> 00:23:37

then he said he's like what do you want? I'm like keen to check on you.

00:23:38--> 00:24:09

Are you you were absent for a week from the Mr. Door. So he's like, I'm healthy. I'm standing there move on in life. I'm like, I'm not moving on until you tell me what's wrong with you. Because we're a little closer. I can have no subjective. Back and forth back and forth. Is that okay? Come here. So I'll go to his house. What's your story? He said you know how dedicated I am to the message Yes or no? I'm like, Yes, I admit to that. He's like, I come to the message. Regardless of the weather. I have no bike I walk every single time I'm like a lost a witness. Yes, I do believe that. And I personally pick you up. Yes, I know. But what's the problem? Why you stopped coming to the message?

00:24:09--> 00:24:25

What's wrong with your attitude? He said, I've been coming to the message for the past nine months, making all kinds of different elements different dot this dot this dot, dot, dot, dot dot this dot that a single one of them was accepted. Why should I worship Him?

00:24:27--> 00:24:32

This is a high school student. May Allah protect us from overzealousness with no knowledge.

00:24:34--> 00:24:55

So there's a lot of things you can tell them but there's a lot. But part of that confusion with this hadith. I told them having heard the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Whenever you make dua to Allah, one of three things happen. Number one was to allow use of a lot of your senses. If you ever asked a lot for something, either Allah will give you what you asked for your dog goes up. Whatever you ask for it comes down.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

or number two, Allah Al Hakim always knows whatever you ask

00:25:00--> 00:25:23

was not good for you. So your dog goes up but no blessing goes down but your dog goes up and blocks blocks a hardship or a calamity that was about to fall upon you. The third is that your dog goes up and stays there and then transforms into hacer net on your skin do pm that's how they're heard this win win win situation

00:25:24--> 00:26:01

they said either nope zero so they will never stomach in the poorly behaved if that's the case they know for a fact Allah will respond but how I don't know but you know allow us to respond to it with the private say Shame on you don't have the attitude of always making drop. No. He said Allahu Akbar Allah is more generous, yes, you should have this attitude always make drop. Now the question which one of the three is best? The best one of the three is whatever Allah sees best for you. With this being said, I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless your beautiful faces. I asked was the panel metallic to honor you. I asked the panel and your theoretical engineer to forgive your shortcomings

00:26:01--> 00:26:42

and forgive my shortcomings. I asked a lot I will do the loving and yet What did the Elena why Escalade man and your homina grammaticality was the articulation. And he asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless your lives and bless your families and strengthen your ties of kinship. And your call we sold our home in America and they asked us a panel with Jada to bless your time and bless your health. And they asked what to allow you to utilize your free time and your good health.
