Valera Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Shira film ba will mousseline Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, WA he will sell you sell him the sleeve and Catherine kathira from Abbado, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:00:17--> 00:00:20

on the qualities of those who are not

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

honored and described as his slaves are bad or Rockman

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

is the quality that they say.

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

Well, Xena Jaco Luna Bannister, Ivanova, jahannam. In

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

Ghana of arama. In

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

Mustafa Romo karma, they say

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

they are those who say our

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

a word from us the drama of the Johanna, verily instrument is ever inseparable, and a permanent punishment.

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

Evil Indeed, it is jahannam as an abort, and as a place to dwell.

00:01:09--> 00:01:24

I remind myself, I knew that in this lesson of hours on the clock of the Almighty, we are looking at those qualities of behavior, those actions, those things that we do, or not do,

00:01:25--> 00:01:52

those that we choose to do and those that we choose not to do, which Allah subhanaw taala likes, he's pleased with he praised and people like that he called his personal slaves earlier medora ask Allah subhanaw taala geladeira, who to include all of us in those who will be called elevador a man. When we meet a loss, we handle data on the Day of Judgment.

00:01:53--> 00:02:25

My brothers and sisters, it is a sign of intelligence, to remember our era and to ask Allah to handle data for protection from the evil of it. As well as rattler described the signs of people have intelligence logicmonitor are seldom mentioned this and he said that the most intelligent of you is the one who remembers his death most often. What is death, death is the door between this world and the next world between this dunya what after

00:02:26--> 00:02:47

that is our death. And my brother and sister is this death is inevitable, it will come it happens. There is nobody in the world who is exempt from it. There is no one who is going to escape it there is no one who ever escaped it. And therefore it makes eminent sense for us to remember that death.

00:02:49--> 00:03:16

And to prepare for it. You know, there's among these Hidayat, these lovely teaching stories that is, in our cultures, it is customary to teach through storytelling, which is one of the most powerful ways of teaching. Now one of those that they say that it is the HCA is the story is that there was a king in some country. And this king

00:03:17--> 00:03:40

decided to set up a competition to discover the biggest fool in his land, subsidiary, hover the corner. So he instructed his ministers is was here to test people and to come up with and find and discover the biggest fool in the land.

00:03:41--> 00:04:00

So this whole process went on for a few months. And adverted advertisements were put out announcements were made. And they said that the person who was judged as being the greatest fool, the biggest one in the land, will be given a big gift or a big prize for this by the king.

00:04:02--> 00:04:50

So people gave and they were tested as far as oath. And after several months, the Prime Minister that was here came to the king and he said, Your Majesty, we have found the greatest, the biggest fool in the land, they have discovered the man. So the king said producing and the man was brought. And the king said have you tested they said yes we have tested there is nobody who is more stupid or no more foolish and more ignorant than this human being. I imagine he's not insane. It's just that he's completely and totally stupid. And he is totally, you know, ignorant and a big fool. So the king was very happy called the man and the king was wearing a, you know, one of these Garland's of

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

jewels gold chain with the started with rubies and diamonds and whatnot. Big pendant. He took it off and he garland the fool with it.

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

So this is your price ticket.

00:05:03--> 00:05:19

The food was very happy. He didn't realize what he had got, he didn't realize the value of that thing. It's worth millions. In a forum, it was a nice shiny thing not in next, he went home. And he liked it very much. So he used to always have it on his back. He always, you know, he literally sort of went to bed with it, and so on. And so

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

now a few months passed, and then this king became ill.

00:05:27--> 00:05:39

And after some time, it was clear that the king was dying, there was no way and no hope for him. And he was on his deathbed. And he was in his last, you know, hours or rash moments of his life.

00:05:40--> 00:06:20

Now, at that time, this fool who got this prize for being the biggest fool in the land, he got this. He was somebody told him that look, you know, The Man Who gave you this? garland is he's, he's dying. So the man said, Well, you know, I read to go see him. So he went to see him. And he was ushered into the palace. He sat down next to the king by his bed. And he asked him, he said, Are you the king said, I'm very sick, I am dying. I'm going. So the man said going, well, man, he's a fool, right is a complete total fool. He has no idea even about life and death. So the king said, I'm going he said, going, well, where are you going?

00:06:21--> 00:06:27

The King said, I'm dying. And I'm leaving this world. So the man said, Yeah, okay, but anyway.

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

So the king said, I'm going to the Acura.

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

So, the banjo Is that right? So,

00:06:37--> 00:06:43

wherever this is, the Mansard Now, tell me something, you know, this beautiful palace of yours.

00:06:44--> 00:06:50

surrounded by all of this finery, and brocade, and silks and gold and silver and Persian carpets, and God, what?

00:06:52--> 00:07:04

Do you have something there as well? Like this? Because you're leaving this? And you need? Are you used to all this luxury? So you need the luxuries? Or is it? You have something apparent there in this? This land? caracara?

00:07:05--> 00:07:10

Looking at tears in his eyes, no, I don't have anything there. He said, I do not even have a heart there.

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

So this fool said he said, that's very strange.

00:07:14--> 00:07:41

Then he said, let me ask you another question. He said, You know, I always notice here all of these people, these ministers and soldiers, and everyone is running around trying to they're fulfilling every whim of yours, every wish of yours. You anything you say that do even if you don't say they run to try to please you. And all of these people are in your service. Do you have some people like this in the in the other place? Because when you you know, you don't want to go wash your dishes or something? Do you? So do you have somebody there?

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

Looking sir, no, I'm sorry, I have nobody there.

00:07:45--> 00:07:46

Nobody that you alone.

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

And I said this is very strange. And then he said to him,

00:07:51--> 00:08:06

you know, here you have the authority, anything you say whatever you want to use, you set up this whole competition, who's the biggest food in the land? And I was, you were very kind you gave me the prize for being the biggest food in the land and so on. So if they want to go to this place, this is lan calasparra.

00:08:07--> 00:08:17

Do you have authority there? I mean, will you be able to walk around people and there was somebody doing something with? The man said, the king said no. So nothing, nothing? I have no authority there whatsoever. I'll be alone.

00:08:20--> 00:08:36

Then this man said, you know, let me ask one more question. With all this gold and silver, you've got so much Well, then, you know, everything of blades of gold. And this is that? I mean, do you have something there? Are you over the all these rings on your fingers? You've got these things on your jewelry you're wearing?

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

Is it going with it? I mean, I you have you sent it there is it there for you. When you have something's there.

00:08:44--> 00:08:52

The king said he was now that he was leaving the king said you know, not only do I not have anything there, but when I die, even these rings, and everything has their will to take away.

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

They will take all this away.

00:08:57--> 00:09:03

So this fall is great school in the land. He said to the king, he said, you know, please forgive me. But I think you made a mistake.

00:09:04--> 00:09:20

I think you made a very big mistake. The king said what he said you gave me the prize for being the biggest fool in the land. But that was a very big mistake. He took off the garden, he put it on the king's neck, he said you are the biggest fool in the land, to this really belongs to you.

00:09:22--> 00:09:27

You are the biggest fool in the land because you are going to someplace and you have no preparation for it.

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

There is nothing there for you.

00:09:31--> 00:09:38

And you had all the time and all the energy and all the money and all the resources to do something about it. You didn't do anything.

00:09:39--> 00:09:46

So you are really the you you deserve this try so please take this prize from me. I am no longer the biggest fool around you are the biggest fool in the net.

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

I remind myself when you let go stand in front of the mirror and tell the story

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

and look at ourselves and say that I am this king. So what's my story?

00:10:01--> 00:10:04

What is my story? Am I looking at the face of the biggest fool in the land?

00:10:06--> 00:10:11

When I look in the mirror, am I looking at the face of the biggest fool in the land?

00:10:12--> 00:10:13

Or what?

00:10:15--> 00:10:21

No seriously listening to an excerpt from one of the horrors of Ramadan Talalay,

00:10:22--> 00:10:42

Dr. Sharma many made a very important and very, very valid point he said, that we do not have what we have is accurate, because we are born with something, especially those of us who are or rather only those of us who are born in Muslim homes. We were born in a Muslim home. So you're all born with his aqidah Silverlight I love

00:10:43--> 00:11:00

that there is no one I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah and Mohammed Salim is the last and final messenger of Allah after whom there is no messenger no Rasul mondovi so this is at the Akita which we will be quizzed. This is what we got in inheritance from our parents.

00:11:02--> 00:11:18

Because this is common to everybody, you know, she has only herbage of America marry, everyone, right? Sophie, Sophie, everyone has this Akita hamdulillah whatever else we believe or we don't believe but this was this is common to all Muslims across the world.

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

So Dr. Hassan clearly said that what we have is Akira.

00:11:26--> 00:11:42

But EMA is something else. yaqeen is something else. So he said ask yourself, do you really and truly believe that Allah subhana wa Taala exists? Do you really and truly believe that this Kitab Al Quran Al Karim is the Kitab of Allah, it's the actual revealed word of Allah.

00:11:43--> 00:11:54

Do you really believe that one day you will die and that you will stand before Allah subhanaw taala he will be brought to before last marathon to stand and be judged. On the day of judgment. Do you really believe this?

00:11:56--> 00:12:04

He said he had this question. He said if you really believe this, then how is it that you don't make any effort to study and understand the Quran Al Karim?

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

I mean, you have you have learned English you learn you know better English than the people were born than English men and women.

00:12:14--> 00:12:19

You could teach English to the people who were born in in the lands where English is spoken.

00:12:21--> 00:12:44

You have this qualification that qualification, you know MBAs and PhDs and MBBS and all kinds of tertiary qualifications in medicine and engineering and whatnot. But you cannot learn Arabic. You will not learn Arabic. You will not learn the Koran you will not learn the meaning of the Quran, and you will no sense of shame. Simply reciting without understanding.

00:12:46--> 00:12:54

You will no sense of shame that your children cannot understand the Quran. You feel no sense of shame that your children simply recite without understanding.

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

The where is the where is the man?

00:13:02--> 00:13:25

I think these are these may be difficult questions but believe me when we are asked the same question of the day of judgment if Allah subhanaw taala asked as a male protect us from this evilness Martha says Did you believe that I was your rubbish er of jello? Yes, I believe Did you believe that my column was my column? And we say yes, Yara why believe that? Then if Allah says Then how come you did not make any effort to learn that? What's the answer?

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

What is the answer?

00:13:30--> 00:13:40

And that's why as soon as soon as Allah man Allah to focus on Allah said that and assume that our soul will complain and say Oh Allah by people who have thrown the Quran they put the Quran behind their backs

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

which means we have neglected the Quran

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

May Allah protect us from this please let us make let us make an effort. I know Arabic is a difficult difficult language I'm trying to learn Arabic I mean, we are lamb Have mercy on me.

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

You know,

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

I'm trying to I'm trying to learn classical Arabic,

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

the actual language itself the grammar and so on and so forth. And so on Allah when I asked Allah to,

00:14:07--> 00:14:12

to to help me and make it easy for me, it seems to have consumed my entire life.

00:14:15--> 00:14:52

But insha Allah, my intention is to learn this in order to understand the Golem of Allah subhanaw taala and the word of is nebia Ali Salaam sallallahu Sallam better, so even if I never learned it, I'm going to continue to try and inshallah ask Allah subhanaw taala to to help me and of course you will love me everybody loves eventually, you know, I mean, my brain is old. So I am taking time but a lot of you listening to be are much younger, much more intelligent, much better memories. please learn the language. And until you learn the language read the meaning in whichever language you read, whether it's true or Damilola, Bora, English or whatever it is read the meaning of the Quran.

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

But remember, there is a huge difference between reading the meaning

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

in a translation and understanding the actual level.

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

language itself.

00:15:02--> 00:15:14

The language of the Quran is part of the miracle of the Quran. The grammar of the Quran is part of the miracle of the Quran. And when you when we, when we learn it like that is really sort of blows your mind.

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

But the point I want to say is

00:15:18--> 00:15:57

that it is the quality of the rational man, that they are interested in understanding the column of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is one of the criteria that we may be need to put before ourselves and say, Do I really have faith in the ACA? Do I really believe that I will die and go before I was granted? As I've said many times before, the sound like a dumb question everybody believes everybody says they believe but the proof of belief is in the action. And like the story of the king, the proof of belief in the act, if you really believe you're going to die the what do you what did you do for that place? There's actually a real life story, historically correct story of exactly the

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

same nature, where alwaleed bin Abdul Malik,

00:16:03--> 00:16:07

the binomial halifa, of manomaya, he came for Amara

00:16:08--> 00:16:18

and he asked somebody said, Is there any anyone among the terrain or you know, Sahaba Of course, by then we're not there was a Tabby

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

here, so they took him to one of the W.

00:16:23--> 00:16:37

And this value of Allah Jalla Walid bin Abdul Malik. And when he asked him, he said, I have only one question. My question is, why do I fear death? He said, I fear to die. Why do I feel fear that

00:16:39--> 00:16:56

and this person said to me, he said that you fear death because you have done nothing to prepare for that. Here you have a palace, there, it's barren land, it's a ruin. You've done nothing to prepare that place to receive you.

00:16:58--> 00:17:12

That's why you're afraid if you had made the effort. And of course, obviously, it means you still have the opportunity to make the effort. If you make the effort, then you will anticipate that you will look forward to that, that Allah does adhere to law while Yamanaka

00:17:14--> 00:17:25

looks at janela Kofi rasulillah. He will swear to NASA, for whom lemon ganja Jolla Yamanaka was Corolla kathira ultramarathoner said the

00:17:26--> 00:17:45

in the life of his heavy hammer Salalah is lm is a good example is the best example for the one who looks forward to the meeting with Allah subhanaw taala and looks forward and anticipates and is waiting for the day of judgment.

00:17:46--> 00:18:03

And he is continuously engaged and does a lot of zeker have a lot of adults. Now think about that the Day of Judgment Allah subhanaw taala described in the Quran in terms which were not very attractive in the sense of you know, Alexander deserved their judgment as something which is very severe, right.

00:18:05--> 00:18:16

Something is very hard and harsh and very severe and very stressful and very painful and mela protector so all of these things and give us the shade of reserves on the day when there will be no shade except to shade.

00:18:19--> 00:18:22

Now, who would look forward to that day.

00:18:24--> 00:18:40

The only people who can look forward to that day are people who are sure inshallah that they will not be subjected and they will not be the victims of all of those stressful situations and that they will be among those who are protected and kept safe.

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

And who are those people, those who follow the sun now Muhammad Rasul Allah is analyzed and that's where the ad begins.

00:18:51--> 00:18:55

The the example of the life of Rasul Allah says Allah.

00:18:57--> 00:19:04

The live audio sources lm is the best example for those who anticipate and look forward to

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

the day of judgment and the vt with Allah.

00:19:09--> 00:19:31

Meaning that if you want to be there, if you want to look forward to the meeting with Allah that follows us now, Mohamed Salah. Now having said that, please understand this and I I don't need to say this, but you know, just to complete this the argument, whether we anticipate it or not, whether we like it or not, whether we look forward to it or not, whether we hate it or we love it, it is going to happen.

00:19:33--> 00:19:45

That is inevitable, resurrection is inevitable. The meeting with Allah is inevitable, the day of judgment is inevitable. It is going to happen and every single person who was born

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

will die.

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

Every person who was born died, good or bad, evil or pure, young or old, powerful.

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

powerless,

00:20:02--> 00:20:04

every single living being

00:20:06--> 00:20:13

once you are born, the only thing which was which could be said with complete certainty was that you will die.

00:20:14--> 00:20:35

Many have died, many are waiting, everybody will die. And everybody who dies, will be resurrected on the day of judgment and will face his maker. And it doesn't matter whether we believe this or we don't believe this, because this is the reality. The Why is belief important, because only when you believe in something, will you do something about

00:20:36--> 00:20:43

and this is what Allah subhanaw taala kept in our hand and this door This is the beauty of the thing we have to understand that Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:44--> 00:20:55

did not give us control over our circumstances in this life. But he gave us complete control over our circumstances in the next life.

00:20:57--> 00:21:23

Now, what shaitaan does, is shatta involves us in something over which we have no control in any case, so that our effort and our time and our energy and our resources are wasted because it's not going to change anything. And he takes our connect our attention away from and he takes our focus away from the thing which is in our control,

00:21:24--> 00:21:34

where every single cent we spend every single minute we spend will have a return then the return is in keeping with the grace and majesty of your admirer.

00:21:36--> 00:22:03

Allah did not give us control over how much we will earn in this dunya he did not give us control over our health he did not give us control over whether or not we will have children. He did not give us control over whether or not we will have power and authority. He did not give us control over our life circumstances whether they're good or bad, but he gave us complete and total control over Janna.

00:22:06--> 00:22:29

Whether or not we want to go to Jenna, who writes that we write it what you what will you have in this journal? What palaces what trees, what gardens, what what rivers what all of that we have control that? If you want to go to Johanna that is in our control. Now you might say who wants to go to Ghana? Sure. Nobody wants to go to Jama Ghana, people will be there.

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

Who are those people? Those who did not believe in it.

00:22:37--> 00:22:41

So that did not prepare to create walls and trenches and projection

00:22:44--> 00:22:44

from Ghana.

00:22:48--> 00:22:55

This allegation is in our control. In the famous hadith of rasa Salah. He said that he met Ibrahim Alayhi Salam

00:22:56--> 00:23:06

and eventually syrup said to him that tell your people yeah Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that Jenna is a open plane

00:23:08--> 00:23:13

of beautiful fertile land and good sweet water.

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

But there is nothing in it.

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

You, your people will have to plant the trees in it.

00:23:25--> 00:23:35

And how is how is that to be done? revelation of Citrin Swann, Allah is a tree and lies a tree. Laila Lola is a tree, Allah Akbar is a tree.

00:23:40--> 00:23:50

And of course Allah subhanaw taala knows the actual nature and and quality and identity of these things, but this is the whole point being that this is where we have control,

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

how much wealth

00:23:54--> 00:23:58

can we have? As much as we want in the accurate it is

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

limited, what Allah has written as in

00:24:03--> 00:24:06

what do we have control over? How to earn

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

from where to earn

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

from what is the method of earning

00:24:13--> 00:24:16

where do we spend, not how much we earn

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

from where what is the source, is it herradura and where you spend it? Is it another Hara?

00:24:26--> 00:24:31

Chetan says to us nobody but all that you know, all this business is nonsense. Forget about it. Right.

00:24:33--> 00:24:36

These people these mullahs, they have nothing else to do they call everything up.

00:24:38--> 00:24:49

You focus on how many millions Can you earn and for that if you have to take a bank loan or interest, no problem. Forget about it. Just take it. This is the world this is the modern world. This is America. This is Europe.

00:24:54--> 00:24:55

Look at Bill Gates. Look at Warren Buffett.

00:24:56--> 00:24:57

Look at Elon Musk.

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

Look at Japan.

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

And look at you.

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

What was you said?

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

must say to him

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

what Allah told us. And that is

00:25:20--> 00:25:24

avanzada ziani nariko dakila janetta foxes

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

almal hair to dounia illa Mata Ooh.

00:25:29--> 00:25:36

Allah said only the one who has been freed from the fire and entered into janome. Only that person is successful.

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

And the life of this world is deception.

00:25:42--> 00:25:45

is Jeff Bezos successful? We don't know.

00:25:46--> 00:25:52

We don't say he's successful. We don't say he is in the fire. is Bill Gates successful? We don't know.

00:25:54--> 00:25:59

Is Warren Buffett's successful? We don't know. Is Elon Musk successful, we don't know.

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

But on the Day of Judgment,

00:26:06--> 00:26:25

the only people who will be successful would be considered successful to success. That is the finish line that is the final ribbon. In this world, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, you, me, your family, my family, we are all running that marathon called life.

00:26:28--> 00:26:41

Have you seen a picture of the New York Marathon of the Boston Marathon one of these things? At the start? What do you see, you see a huge volume of people all running? The old and young and this and that, and so on and so forth?

00:26:43--> 00:26:50

Everybody's running. At that point in time, if somebody tells you a point to me, who is a winner? What will you say? You say it's crazy?

00:26:51--> 00:26:54

It's a crazy question. Nobody can say who's How can I say who's the winner?

00:26:55--> 00:27:04

The race is just started, the race is just going on last. It's a marathon and all those kilometers is out like two kilometers into the race.

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

Right? How can we say?

00:27:10--> 00:27:18

How can we say with certainty who win? Or who wins? Or who will win this race? We can say nobody can say, whoever is saying it is guessing.

00:27:19--> 00:27:20

Without any basis?

00:27:22--> 00:27:29

What about the finishing line? What about when you are standing there the finishing line? Can you say who succeeded, of course, very simple.

00:27:32--> 00:27:46

And that's one of those words are saying Allah is saying, don't get deceived by what you see in this world. Don't get deceived by somebody's private plane. And don't get deceived by somebody in a fancy car. Don't get deceived by somebody who's parents do not get deceived by these things.

00:27:49--> 00:27:51

Everybody is in the race.

00:27:52--> 00:28:00

The successful people are going to be those who, on the day of judgment, they're freed from the fire and they are entered into Jannah.

00:28:01--> 00:28:08

This they will be successful, no matter what the world thought about them, when they used to live in the world.

00:28:10--> 00:28:15

Think about that. Think about what was the opinion of the world?

00:28:17--> 00:28:18

general population,

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

about every Nabhi.

00:28:23--> 00:28:27

The majority of people What did they believe about the Navy?

00:28:29--> 00:28:33

Especially at the inception at the beginning of their missions?

00:28:35--> 00:28:52

Did they consider that Nabhi to be a great person? Fantastic, beautiful leader? immediate demos follow them? Here is a sure winner, or did they say Did they consider the W to be I don't want us to use negative terminology. But I'm saying did they consider that W to be the opposite of all those things.

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

Every single w

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

at the beginning of his mission

00:29:01--> 00:29:04

for some of them to our their vision, right to the end.

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

They were the least popular.

00:29:11--> 00:29:12

They were the least powerful.

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

They were the least liked

00:29:18--> 00:29:19

only a few people.

00:29:20--> 00:29:22

Only a handful of people.

00:29:24--> 00:29:28

Today the the largest population of

00:29:29--> 00:29:33

people of faith of believers are the Christians. Right?

00:29:36--> 00:29:41

What was how many people followed? He saw a sermon he was alive in this world.

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

handful of people

00:29:46--> 00:29:50

and they were so weak and so powerless that you know they could do nothing do anybody.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

So what was the global view about his ericeira when he walked the earth

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

And that's the story of everybody, all of them here.

00:30:06--> 00:30:11

But who are the most successful of people? The most without any exception.

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

The ambia philos valterra.

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

Under be here was a decade where

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

there's a hierarchy of successful people.

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

So it doesn't matter what the world thinks of you.

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

popularity.

00:30:34--> 00:30:35

Facebook likes,

00:30:36--> 00:30:38

Instagram hearts.

00:30:40--> 00:30:52

Right? Whatever social media nonsense that you believe in, and you take as, as the meter of, of your own self esteem, discard all that is junk.

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

Doesn't make any difference.

00:30:56--> 00:31:00

The only thing which will make a difference is what Allah subhanaw taala thinks of you and me when we meet him.

00:31:03--> 00:31:08

And that will be based on what is that based on our race?

00:31:09--> 00:31:37

Will the Indians be and Pakistanis be more successful than others? Will the is it based on our on our ethnicity? With the whites be more successful than the blacks or the blacks be more successful than the whites? Is it based on our nationalities? Is it based on our gender the men are more successful than the women and vice versa? What No, it's based on nothing except for one and that one thing is how did we live this life? What were our actions like?

00:31:38--> 00:31:56

The most successful people are those who did the best actions. What is the definition of a best action? The best action is that which is done to please Allah subhanho wa Taala sincere intention to please only Allah and the action is done only to please Allah subhanaw taala

00:31:57--> 00:32:07

what is the guarantee that an action will please Allah subhanaw taala inshallah, that guarantee is called the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa he was abused.

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

There is no guarantee or anybody else's action.

00:32:13--> 00:32:24

But I can say for certain that the guarantee of the approval of Allah is on every action that Mohammed Salah Holly used to celebrate and the proof of that guarantee is not my fatwa.

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

I'm saying this based on a deli. What is the dairy? The dairy is Canada COVID also Illa

00:32:33--> 00:32:38

Allah America said is the best example for you is the example of binomial a syrup

00:32:40--> 00:32:58

so if I follow the example of Rasulullah Zetas alum sure I can follow that in excerpts and week I may make mistakes and so on but I'm making an effort in sha Allah before Allah subhanaw taala I have an excuse. I can go and say Allah I did my best you know this, you are the You are the proof you are the my witness.

00:32:59--> 00:33:01

And Allah subhanaw taala went a step ahead.

00:33:03--> 00:33:20

And another Mandela said call in kuntum to hipbone Allah Fatah. buni yubico la jolla lagoon roba como lo Rahim, Allah subhanaw taala said to know each other's Allah say to them over Hamas, Allah alayhi wa sallam said especially to those who claim to love Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:33:21--> 00:33:35

say to those who think they are doing good things, they're to the bucks and day to the buck the people and say to the people, who who love God and who want to be spiritual and you know all of these things that we talk about, that as soon as as Allah said said, all of these people

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

follow my example fat Bo ne emulate me imitate me

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

right.

00:33:47--> 00:33:51

Now, what is the difference between emulating and obeying,

00:33:52--> 00:34:04

both are required with respect to the prophet SAW Selim both are required we are we are a to LA to Rasul and Allah has also set forth w oni A with respect to Mr. Salah. He said said to them,

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

Kolkata boonie

00:34:09--> 00:34:35

make my diva the difference between obedience and emulation is obedience is based on an on a hook upon an order. We can obey once we there is something to obey. If somebody gives us an instruction, then we can obey the instruction. But in the absence of an instruction obedience is not possible. But it diva emulation, imitation is independent of

00:34:36--> 00:34:41

instruction. We emulate and we imitate based on love.

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

We emulate those we look up to we emulate and imitate those we love. Whether it is in clothing, whether it is in dress, whether it is a style, whether it's in how we walk and talk, whether it's in how we behave. we consciously or unconsciously emitted as

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

emulate those we love

00:35:04--> 00:35:05

right?

00:35:07--> 00:35:10

And we see examples of this in our lives all over.

00:35:12--> 00:35:15

So what is Allah saying? Allah say obey my prophet of course.

00:35:17--> 00:35:59

Or my UT la hora solo forgot Vasa Hosanna zema the one obeys Allah subhanaw taala and is no BS surely except for them. They are the only people who will be finally successful that is no doubt about that inshallah. But further we only if you obey if you imitate what will happen, you have kumala Allah will love you. imitation and emulation is an x is a manifestation of your love for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Allah saying, If you love My Habib, I will love you. If you love mine Abbe alayhi salam, I will love you. And what happens if Allah loves you? minimum of boundary conditions for Laguna Nova como la foto Rahim Allah will forgive all your sins and Allah is

00:35:59--> 00:36:10

the most forgiving and and most merciful. The boundary condition is all your sins are forgiven if all your sins are forgiven, what does it mean? It means you will be agenda shall.

00:36:12--> 00:36:23

This is the power of dishonor. And that's the reason why we must study the Syrah of Bahama grace relies on a Solomon continuously keep on asking xinchao How did he behave in this situation?

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

What did he say about such a situation?

00:36:29--> 00:36:34

How did he do this transaction? Because I want to follow him.

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

This is the definition of success.

00:36:41--> 00:36:49

This is the definition of success, not my definition, the definition of our Creator, Allah subhanho data of the lottery.

00:36:51--> 00:37:03

numbers just as I strongly encourage you and I remind myself and I encourage myself that as we have the we have the winning formula, why on earth would you not want to use it?

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

Why on earth? would you not want us it? We know how to do it.

00:37:11--> 00:37:17

We know how to win, we have the winning formula. All it needs is for us to put it into practice, just do it.

00:37:19--> 00:37:22

If you still don't do it, the whose fault is it?

00:37:24--> 00:37:26

Like we don't want to have that kind of an argument.

00:37:27--> 00:37:36

So very, very clearly We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us and to preserve us and to protect us from Johanna.

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

And as I told you, that

00:37:40--> 00:37:41

da hamdulillah is very good.

00:37:43--> 00:37:44

But Allah given control.

00:37:45--> 00:37:48

If I want to protect myself from Johanna, whose help do I need?

00:37:50--> 00:37:53

I need the help of Allah of course. But other than that, nobody is

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

nobody else.

00:37:56--> 00:38:03

I ask for the help of Allah. And then I just do what I know I should do. There is no mystery.

00:38:05--> 00:38:06

There's no mystery.

00:38:07--> 00:38:18

Obey Allah. Obey is who he loves. alasa Love is love is analyze Allah and emulate Him and follow Him in everything that we do.

00:38:20--> 00:38:51

And the beauty of all this, think about this. The beauty of all this is that yes, indeed inshallah Allah knows that we will get German. But even in this world, we will be the most beloved, the most popular, the most powerful, the most influential people going because when you behave with somebody the way that Mohammed salaallah alayhi wa sallam used to behave with people, you will get the same results that he got and what was the result that he got. He became in his own lifetime.

00:38:52--> 00:39:04

After the initial struggle was over, when those people who who did not want to follow him for their own reasons, which were really political and power related reasons.

00:39:06--> 00:39:09

After that, he was and he became

00:39:11--> 00:39:14

and he remains to this day, 14 centuries later,

00:39:16--> 00:39:21

the most beloved person today for for a billion and a half people in the world.

00:39:24--> 00:39:29

In his time in his lifetime, with his companions, he was the most beloved to them.

00:39:34--> 00:39:45

Right? soybean farmer when he came to meet me solemn, actually Jose, he said this, he went back to the ranch and he said I have never seen people like this.

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

I have been in the in the in the courts of kings and so on and so forth. I've seen their followers but these people he said even when Mohammed Salah makes Budo they do not let the water fall to the ground. They take the water in their own hands and they drink it and

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

In the spirit of their faces, they wash their faces with the water for America.

00:40:06--> 00:40:10

He says we cannot go we cannot defeat these people we cannot go against them they love him too much.

00:40:13--> 00:40:17

Like Arabs, oh my brother my jet bow or my my brother, I love you too much.

00:40:21--> 00:40:25

brother sister seriously, let us understand this and let us make this near,

00:40:26--> 00:40:33

that are not going to stand at the front of the mirror and tell and look at my face and say I am looking at the biggest fool in the world. No, sorry.

00:40:34--> 00:40:37

That's not how I want to live my life. And that is not how I want to in my life.

00:40:39--> 00:41:12

Let's prepare. Let us ensure that when we look at ourselves in the mirror, I will say inshallah, I'm looking at the smartest person going because not because of anything else, because this is a person meaning yourself who is preparing for something which he knows and he would that is his belief. He has this year team. You know, if a person who does not believe in Allah, who does not believe in the ACA, if that person doesn't prepare, there is a logic for that. But for people like us who say we believe in Allah, and we say that we believe in the ACA, if we still don't prepare for it, what is the logic?

00:41:15--> 00:41:42

What is it except to say that we are liars in vanilla when we don't want this? We do not want to be called liars. inshallah, we are not liars. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from ourselves from productors from our lies will protect us from hypocrisy to give us sincerity and a class and is the cover then give us give us forbearance and summer and give us give us steadfastness and to keep us in a state where we are obedient women take us in that state.
