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

Hola rival hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Shara filmbay, mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to consider, for my battle my double sisters in our class on the clock of the oma T's or civilizer salaam. I want to remind you myself,

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

about the Iron Man which we assume for fun which we are following,

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

where Allah subhanaw taala mentioned

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

those slaves of his who, when they are, and he's mentioned those qualities, which you call this, the slaves we called our Alibaba man,

00:00:48--> 00:00:54

the special slaves of Allah subhanaw taala, who is our man and this is a gela a.

00:00:57--> 00:01:08

It's a guarantee of forgiveness, guarantee of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala on such people, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to include us among those people.

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

Brothers, sisters,

00:01:13--> 00:01:32

lots of subhanaw taala then said, among after the other at which we have already mentioned, Allah mentioned the quality and he said, These are the people who when they are reminded of the Ayat of Allah, I had of the rub, della delallo the signs of the Quran, they are not deaf and blind to them.

00:01:35--> 00:01:40

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this quality of the believers also in

00:01:41--> 00:02:11

the movie known also in another place in circle unfurl, where Allah said in our movie noon, Allah Vina De Luca la de la kulu what is truly a diary Maya to zada, to me, Vanna White Amitabha kulu where which means the believers are only those who when Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned they feel a sense of the oil and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala in their hearts, and when is is are recited to them the ayat of the Quran.

00:02:13--> 00:02:27

They increase the fate of these people, the I increase the fate of these people. And then Allah said these are the people who believe in the room who put their trust in their robe alone.

00:02:28--> 00:02:42

Now to remind to respond to the caliber of Allah subhanaw taala is a sign of the believer who believes in the Torah and in the meeting with Islam, to be deaf and blind to the warnings of Allah is a disease of the heart.

00:02:43--> 00:03:01

And that's why Allah subhanaw taala asked this rhetorical question where he said of Allah tada Barun Al Quran, Allah kulu been a follower in the levina todo Allah Abadi him mimbar Dima tobyhanna, Allah homolka a shade of one and a home What

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

lesson Do they not think they're not then reflect to the knot then think deeply in the Quran? Or are their hearts locked up, acquired? Or do they have COVID on their on their hearts? Very those who have turned back means they have stated they have after being in Islam, they left Islam or after the word given that after a loss mantella guided them they chose the path of shaitan. Allah said, as disbelievers after guidance have been shown to them those who have turned back as disbelievers after the guidance was shown to them shaytan beautified for them their false hopes and Allah Subhana Allah prolong their term or their age.

00:03:46--> 00:04:14

It is a sunnah of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he sends Warners to all people. But if they contribute, they continue to reject them. Then the doors of guidance at some point get shut, they get closed. On the day of judgment, none of the clever little arguments in favor of Allah disobedience that we like to make, none of them will count. Those who use them in this world would be humiliated and they will be driven into the Hellfire

00:04:15--> 00:04:18

and ultramarathon I mentioned this, where desert tocado

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

could be avoided Salam casado

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

did nobody come to warn you, Carlo Baraka?

00:04:29--> 00:04:53

Why not? Definitely people give to us for God's love in our fullness, but we denied them and we told them that they were liars for God for khazana or Coronavirus Allah lava and shake in unto me love is Allah Allah Kabir makalu lo Coronavirus, Mo Nakuru, Hakuna VSI beside satara for wisdom be him for so coleus herbicide in the levina action or Bombay will

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

be a loss rhondella said it when the Johanna when people are

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

Brought and put into it, it almost bursts with fury. Every time a group is cast there in its keeper will ask did no warner come to you? They will say yes, indeed, a warner did come to us, but we belied him, denied him and we said, Allah never sent down anything of Revelation, you are only in great error, you are a liar, you are, you are you are, you are just saying this nothing has come true. And they will say had we But listen, or use our intelligence in the world is not the very intelligent, but they will make aircraft they will own up. And they will say if we were intelligent, if we had used our intelligence, or if he or at least listened to the water, which is the Navy of

00:05:46--> 00:06:21

Allah, and we have the time, or the people in the last room, it is a sorcerer himself. And then those who came after would remind people about a loss of an altar. They say if you don't listen to that person, we would not today we would not be in this mess, we will not have been among the people of the blazing fire dwellers of the blazing fire, then they will confess their sins fire me, so call us homicide. And so away with the dwellers, they have the blazing fire lessons now they have no time to go. In the next show Nara Bombay Rama Farah kavika Arjun Karim, Allah subhanaw taala said

00:06:25--> 00:06:38

that only the people who believe in Allah, in the Latina extra boom we like those who have a shot of Allah. While this isn't the right meaning in this life,

00:06:40--> 00:06:57

unless we're hunters in the lab, using the unperceivable. Yet the believers they believe in Him, they worship only him, they do not join partners with him and they have a shot of him in their hearts, the field is all and glory and majesty of Allah.

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

Lo monferrato

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

COVID Allah said for them, there is great reward. And for them there is

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

nothing macfeather there is forgiveness of brothers sisters, I remind myself when you let us not fall into the trap of shutdown.

00:07:15--> 00:07:22

shutdown has many ways of fooling people that does not fall into the trap of shatter. Now

00:07:24--> 00:07:35

I reminded myself that to believe is to act, not merely pay lip service to belief, credibility falls to the gap between the stated and the practiced,

00:07:36--> 00:07:40

we have must demonstrate our belief by obeying

00:07:41--> 00:07:45

and disobedience is only in that which he would otherwise not have done.

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

Right.

00:07:49--> 00:07:59

Lead on the words of warning fall on deaf ears, lest Allah subhanaw taala shuts the doors of guidance for us.

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

My brother's sisters, remember,

00:08:06--> 00:08:16

obedience is not just doing what we like to do. Obedience is to do that which we know we must do, even if we don't like to do it.

00:08:17--> 00:08:26

And this is actually the evidence is approval of obedience, the obedient person will obey whether or not they like to obey at the time,

00:08:27--> 00:08:52

the time for Salah comes here the other will go to the masjid or we stand up in prayer wherever we are. Even though it may not be convenient at that time, even though we may be doing something else which we which we are enjoying, even though we may be, you know, with people we want to talk to and so on. So, we take the time out. And we go and we worship Allah subhanaw taala You know, one of the biggest

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

games gives a shout on plays with us. I want to share that with you

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

so that we don't fall into this trap. And interestingly, this is a game that shaitaan plays with the people who like to think of themselves as educated.

00:09:10--> 00:09:55

It is not a game he plays with the ignorant people. So people like us who think we are educated. And may Allah bless us and save us from ourselves. Some of us our education was all from WhatsApp University, it's not proper education, we just have take these, we get these messages from here and there and we think the knowledge May Allah protect us and enable us to get proper knowledge and not be fooled and not allow shaitaan to fool us. Now, the trap that Chetan puts people like us in is this, which is I like to describe that as the difference between what is said and what what is

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

the how and the why.

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

The how and the way

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

Now,

00:10:03--> 00:10:04

if you

00:10:05--> 00:10:11

to illustrate this, let me let me explain this to you the difference between how and why

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

to illustrate this,

00:10:16--> 00:10:19

think about this today we are in this whole Corona

00:10:21--> 00:10:24

matter, and everyone is very

00:10:25--> 00:10:31

worried about this Corona and so on and so forth. What will happen? What will not happen all that? Now,

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

if you think about this seriously.

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

And if you ask somebody,

00:10:40--> 00:10:48

how can you how do you get Cora, I want to be careful. So, I want to make sure I don't do anything which will give me So, how do you get Cora.

00:10:50--> 00:11:23

So, they will tell you, you get Cora, if you don't take precautions, what are the precautions, you are likely to get caught on it or not wearing a mask or you'd like to get caught. And if you don't wash your hands after you go out somewhere because you might have the virus on your hands and then you touch your nose or mouth it it can affect you. So enjoy you don't touch your nose or mouth and show that you wash your hands with soap. And they told us you know, put a lot of soap and then wash and rinse and sing Happy Birthday to you twice as a matter anyway.

00:11:24--> 00:11:48

And then also maintain distance. So don't shake hands. Don't Hug don't kiss. Don't be close to people maintain distance. For some funny reason. It's called social distance. I don't know why. But anyway, it should be called physical distance. That's what it is. What is social about it anyway? So the point is that to maintain this distance. So how do you get Corona? Well, if you don't do all these things, if you don't mention

00:11:51--> 00:11:56

the ask another question. Why do you get Corona? Why do you get COVID-19?

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

They will tell you some things.

00:12:01--> 00:12:05

How do you get it? Same things? Why do you get it same things.

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

Another example

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

if I asked you

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

why do earthquakes happen?

00:12:17--> 00:12:26

So you will tell me earthquakes happen because of the movement of tectonic plates. One of them one rises, rides on the other. So let's fix

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

this. Okay, so this is I this is the answer to why do earthquakes happen?

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

I'm asking you the same question how do earthquakes happen?

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

And you will give me the same answer.

00:12:39--> 00:12:42

How will they happen because a tectonic plate goes on top.

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

Now my question is How is it possible?

00:12:47--> 00:12:53

That the answer to how and the answer to why is the same? How can it be the same?

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

Let me illustrate

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

you know, I love biryani very much.

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

So

00:13:03--> 00:13:07

I come to your house. And you know that I love biryani so you make the money.

00:13:09--> 00:13:17

So when I come there and I'm I'm so happy to see that. I tell you my brother, why did you make vision? Why did you go to all this trouble? Why didn't you make this beer?

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

Right?

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

What is your answer? What would you say?

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

Let me ask you another way.

00:13:32--> 00:13:41

You make this biryani now I come to house I did any Oh, I love it. So I tell you please tell me how do you make this? How do you make this

00:13:43--> 00:14:16

and you explained to me, you know, this is the rice and the meat and the spices and this and this and this the whole recipe said excellent. Now I come to your house, make this video and ask you Why do you make the reasoning? Why did you do this? And you are telling me the same story. Take rice take water take take you know meat and these spices, those spices. Now is that the is that answer correct? I mean when I say how do you make the biryani You're giving me explanation of how it is done. But when asked you why did you make it You're giving me the same explanations?

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

How can we write

00:14:23--> 00:14:28

the correct answer to why is not the recipe the correct answer the Why is the reason why you did it.

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

Not how does it happen?

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

So now

00:14:36--> 00:14:40

if I asked you, how does Cora happen? You tell me this, this this

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

ask you why that's gonna happen and you're telling me the same thing.

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

How can I do it?

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

So what is the answer to why?

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

I'm giving you a Quran only as an example, but can be anything

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

you've asked you

00:15:01--> 00:15:08

Why is how is it that we have these big peaks and troughs? In our financial

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

dealings in the economy?

00:15:13--> 00:15:16

We have these huge periodic peaks and troughs.

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

Stock Market go up and scrub maggots crush.

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

How is it happens?

00:15:26--> 00:15:38

And you tell me Well, no, this is the debt equity problem, this is the problem of, of the interest based banking system and so on. So it happens, they asked me the same question, why does it happen?

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

And you give me the service, oh, but you know, the

00:15:43--> 00:15:48

notional value of stock, and so on and so forth and sentiment in the market.

00:15:51--> 00:16:03

My question is, I can give you many such examples, but that's enough. My question is, how can the answer to how be the same as the answer to why?

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

Now, think about this.

00:16:12--> 00:16:13

If you

00:16:14--> 00:16:21

want to make something which is good to happen again, or if you want to stop something, which is bad?

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

Do you need the why or do you need the How?

00:16:28--> 00:16:31

Well, you might need the how, to some extent, but

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

what you really need is a why.

00:16:37--> 00:16:44

And the reason why I'm saying this is because if you look at the world, and what we face in terms of difficulties.

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

The reason there is not how But why?

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

How we know the science of it.

00:16:56--> 00:17:00

I'm not discounting science, I'm saying the science takes you to a point.

00:17:01--> 00:17:14

But beyond the point also there is a reality and that reality is the reality of the spiritual world reality of the way the reality of the of the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala very well, they already have the Kitab of Allah, the Book of Allah.

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

And this is a level beyond science.

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

Science is what is the how

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

the revelation of the Kitab Allah is the why.

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

So now why does Corona happen?

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

Why do plagues happen? Why do natural calamities?

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

Why do we have

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

Allah subhanaw taala told us why.

00:17:44--> 00:17:55

First and foremost, Allah subhanaw taala told us he gave us the focus. And he said it's not because of tectonic plates is not because of the Coronavirus. It's not because of bats and so on and so on. Those are all how

00:17:57--> 00:18:01

masaba come in mercy but in Illa Bismillah

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

Allah knows what comes except by the will of Allah.

00:18:08--> 00:18:14

So first and foremost, we have to understand this, that whatever we are facing, whatever difficulty we are facing

00:18:15--> 00:18:21

is not happening. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala lost control.

00:18:22--> 00:18:30

It is happening because Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to teach us a lesson.

00:18:31--> 00:18:35

Right? Allah wants to teach us a lesson.

00:18:36--> 00:18:42

And that is why it is happening not because Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

does not know or cannot do, does not know what to do or cannot do it. Not because

00:18:53--> 00:18:57

it's happening because Allah subhanaw taala wants us

00:18:58--> 00:18:58

to

00:19:00--> 00:19:01

learn a lesson.

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

Right?

00:19:09--> 00:19:11

No Mercy what comes

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

except by the will of Allah. First thing.

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

Second thing to understand is

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

so why does this will of Allah allow it to happen? We accept it is by the will of Allah. But why does Allah do this?

00:19:31--> 00:19:43

So Allah america that's telling us that Allah is not doing anything. Allah is only allowing the effect of your actions to manifest.

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

Allah could have stopped that

00:19:47--> 00:19:52

but Allah decided to let you see the effect of what you are doing.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

So I was running the reserves are el pasado. Will very well Buhari Bhima Casa

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

But I didn't see the music Oh by the law the army Lu La La home your shoe

00:20:08--> 00:20:29

that love your, your job. Right? Allah subhanaw taala said that the trials and tribulations, the facade, the difficulties, the calamities, whatever difficulties you can think about. Allah said that all of these which have manifested which have become clear which have appeared

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

Phil burry Phil

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

Phil Burberry,

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

on the land and on the seas.

00:20:38--> 00:20:46

Be Marcus our ad nurse is the result of the of what the hands of men of people have earned.

00:20:49--> 00:20:53

The most Ziva is not something which is sent by Allah subhanaw taala randomly.

00:20:54--> 00:20:59

Allah is not say here is a bunch of people who are happy, I can't see them being happy. So I'm going to give them some trouble. No.

00:21:04--> 00:21:20

Now, you might say, Well, you know, whatever I did, Allah would have stopped it. Yes, of course, he would have stopped it, we decided not to do that. He decided not to stop it. Why? Lucy Columbus, Ella D'Angelo, Darla JoJo, so that you may get a taste some of the taste

00:21:22--> 00:21:27

of what you are doing. So that you may turn towards Allah subhanaw taala.

00:21:30--> 00:21:57

This is like sometimes, you know, there are children who are extremely mischievous, right? They're always constantly doing things. And some of the stuff they do is potentially dangerous. And they might get hurt, and so on and so forth. And the parents constantly try to warn them and try to don't do this don't lose, you will get hurt. And at some point in time, maybe one of the parents says no, let him do it, let him fall down, then he will realize,

00:21:58--> 00:22:23

because I'm explaining to him again. And again, and again, it doesn't seem to understand. So let him fall down. When he gets hurt, I mean, he's not going to fall down and kill himself is not that kind of follow up. But some little bit of you know, let him get a little bit of hurt. Even though the parent does not want to see the childhood, even though once the child is hurt is the parent who is going to put some pointment on the on the wound and clean the wound. And if there is anything,

00:22:25--> 00:22:34

the parent is going to try and comfort the child. So you might say, Well, you know, if you are going to do all that, why did you let it happen, because this child will not learn otherwise.

00:22:35--> 00:22:50

This child is very mischievous. And no matter how much I try to convince this child, his child is simply not listening, not understanding refuses to do that. So it is better that I let this child do

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

what he's doing.

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

Let him suffer that loss. And then he will come to his senses.

00:22:59--> 00:23:00

Now this is what I realized was

00:23:01--> 00:23:04

alleging that your deeds

00:23:06--> 00:23:10

are going to produce some evil effects in your life.

00:23:11--> 00:23:19

And even though Allah subhanaw taala could have stopped those things, he decided not to do that because this is not the first time you're doing it, you have to continuously do these things.

00:23:20--> 00:23:30

Allah subhanaw taala declared war on the people who deal deal in interest, but you still want to deal in interest. So Allah says, Okay, then let me

00:23:31--> 00:23:38

you know, get out of the way. Your own interest based banking will show you its effect.

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

So your economy collapses.

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

You have 1000s and hundreds of 1000s of people on the street.

00:23:46--> 00:23:48

People are losing the roof over their head.

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

Hopefully you will learn a lesson and get out of the situation where you have accepted a declaration of war for on the

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

right.

00:24:03--> 00:24:07

You have decided to eat stuff which allows Ronald Allah has made Allah

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

and Allah did not make it around because Allah likes to trouble you.

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

Allah made it a lot run because it is bad for you.

00:24:18--> 00:24:26

But you don't want to stop. So you have these blood markets and you have you know, you're eating live animals and you're eating all kinds of

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

creatures that Allah subhanaw taala did not make halal for you.

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

eating insects and you eating bats and you eating God knows what.

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

So what happens now? You get disease.

00:24:42--> 00:24:49

You get disease. Allah subhanaw taala said, Do not fornicate, be chaste, be pure.

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

But no.

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

You want to indulge your senses.

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

And you have all these you know free love and this and that.

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

So okay, so then what happens?

00:25:07--> 00:25:11

You get STDs, sexually transmitted diseases.

00:25:16--> 00:25:24

Now we might say, well you know this is painful. But think about this. Why is Allah doing this? Allah saying that I am doing this because

00:25:26--> 00:25:31

so that you will repent, so that you will change your ways.

00:25:33--> 00:25:45

Now if we change our ways who benefits, we benefit, because Allah Subhana, Allah Subhan Allah is, has no needs, you cannot harm Allah and you cannot benefit Allah.

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

Allah subhanaw taala is beyond harm or benefit.

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

So Allah is doing this for us, so that we benefit.

00:25:55--> 00:26:06

And then another one whose econo Mina La Villa de la luna, la ville, Aqua de la la jolla. Allah says that we give them words, taste of the punishment.

00:26:08--> 00:26:23

begin our tastes with a small punishment before the big punishment so that they turn towards Allah smarter, so that they can seek repentance, and save themselves from a punishment, which is much more severe, which will come in the hereafter in the afra.

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

about myself in you, it's very good for us to try to understand what it is that we are seeing

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

around us and within us.

00:26:37--> 00:26:49

What we are seeing is a result of our deeds. Now, having said that, not everybody who's suffering is someone who has been doing evil, because this is the sooner one has run into when the punishment comes, it comes on everybody.

00:26:50--> 00:27:00

It's not punishment, this is the law, this is a this is a test. And this is, inshallah, it's a warning. But still, from our from our point of view, it is painful,

00:27:01--> 00:27:03

that some people are dying, and this and that.

00:27:04--> 00:27:08

And some people are in our in whoever, whoever is feeling the symptoms are

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

feeling the pain of that.

00:27:13--> 00:27:15

So for us, it is painful.

00:27:16--> 00:27:18

But as far as saying that this pain

00:27:19--> 00:27:29

is good for you, if you make it a means of guidance, if you take this pain, and get some benefit out of it.

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

What is the benefit, to turn towards Allah.

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

Because if we don't do that, in this life,

00:27:38--> 00:27:52

then going forward in the life to come, it will be much worse, much worse. Because this pain in this life, whatever it might be, is something that is going to end with this life.

00:27:54--> 00:27:58

And by n with this life, I don't necessarily mean that you have to die.

00:27:59--> 00:28:02

As I said, even though the

00:28:03--> 00:28:06

you don't need to die, but you know, you can get cured and so on.

00:28:09--> 00:28:10

So the pain will end,

00:28:12--> 00:28:22

but the pain in the after, if we die with those sins, if we die with the, with the evil that we have been doing

00:28:24--> 00:28:25

in the acara

00:28:26--> 00:28:32

illa Mashallah exceptive, Allah subhanaw taala has mercy and wants to change that for somebody

00:28:33--> 00:28:37

that permanent is that that punishment is permanent,

00:28:38--> 00:28:42

that is permanent, that is always that is forever

00:28:43--> 00:28:44

as long as Allah wishes,

00:28:46--> 00:28:49

whereas this one is temporary,

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

is temporary.

00:28:53--> 00:28:58

That is the reason why we need to be so careful with regard to

00:29:02--> 00:29:06

with regard to the soul and the hurdles, the boundaries of

00:29:09--> 00:29:10

the difference between how and why.

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

So all the understanding of the How will not take you to the why.

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

For the why you need the guidance of the prophets, Allah Salah.

00:29:22--> 00:29:28

Because only the one who does it, only the one who makes it happen can tell you why he made it happen.

00:29:30--> 00:29:42

This is not knowledge that we can get out of deduction, out of experimentation out of our own reflection. This is knowledge that needs to be given to us and who gives it

00:29:43--> 00:29:45

the one to whom it belongs. That is Allah Subhana.

00:29:47--> 00:29:52

Allah subhanaw taala only can tell us why he did what he did.

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

In this case, why he said Corona and as I'm saying, not saying that Corona is mentioned in the corner

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

But what is mentioned in the Quran is this where Allah subhanaw taala mentioned and specifically, that Allah subhanaw taala tests

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

with these things

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

and when he is testing, this is something that you have brought on yourself.

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

Because you have accepted

00:30:24--> 00:30:30

you have if you're dealing in interest and you've accepted a declaration of war from Allah

00:30:31--> 00:30:38

and if it is not interest, if it is some other kind of evil that you're doing, then you have

00:30:40--> 00:30:42

understood and you know, I know we are all intelligent people,

00:30:44--> 00:30:51

we know that these actions attract the punishment of Allah still insist on doing them.

00:30:54--> 00:30:59

So it means what it means you brought it on ourselves. Now therefore, what must we do?

00:31:00--> 00:31:01

Again, that's very simple.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

Again, that's very simple, reverse the situation.

00:31:07--> 00:31:08

reverse it,

00:31:09--> 00:31:13

what brought it on the opposite of that will take it away.

00:31:14--> 00:31:17

So disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala,

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

eating and drinking of Haram,

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

dealing in haram all these kinds of things, these are what bring the trials and tribulations These are what bring the difficulties

00:31:32--> 00:31:33

on the people.

00:31:35--> 00:31:37

These are the things we make it difficult for us.

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

So what must we do? Get out of them.

00:31:41--> 00:31:44

Make your life obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:31:46--> 00:31:50

What does that mean? It means follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

If we do that, there are hamdulillah there is no problem.

00:31:57--> 00:32:17

Allah subhanaw taala will reverse Allah will change the condition where Allah tala said Allah does not change the good condition of a people until they change it themselves. And so obviously the but the opposite is also true, that Allah does not change the bad condition of a people until they change it themselves.

00:32:20--> 00:32:27

So if I want the conditions or me to change, what must I do? Look at my actions. I must change my actions.

00:32:29--> 00:32:31

I must clean up my act.

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

I must watch what I eat and drink I must watch what I earn.

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

I must make this far. I must apologize to Allah subhana wa tada I must show my regret at what I have been doing.

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

And then I must seek Allah subhanaw taala as pardon

00:32:56--> 00:32:59

and I was making over which is I must change my life

00:33:01--> 00:33:12

is too far and this is the secret This is the turn around. And Allah subhanaw taala promised she said the one who does that Allah will forgive all his sins.

00:33:13--> 00:33:25

Level forgive all the sins of the individual who seeks the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala There is nothing more there's nothing bigger and more powerful than the mercy of Allah.

00:33:27--> 00:33:33

There's nothing more nothing bigger more powerful than the forgiveness and and the Mahabharata famous man

00:33:36--> 00:33:37

but to invoke that,

00:33:39--> 00:33:40

to get in touch with that

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

the effort has to come from us.

00:33:46--> 00:33:48

We have to initiate that.

00:33:49--> 00:33:52

Allah subhanaw taala gives us the opportunities Allah

00:33:53--> 00:34:00

gives us sends Warner's to us unless amount of data send the waters in anyways we believe me a warner is not only

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

is not only a human being

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

every white hair is a warner.

00:34:11--> 00:34:13

Every ache and pain is a winner.

00:34:14--> 00:34:16

Every janazah you attend is a warner.

00:34:19--> 00:34:29

The person who like the I said the other day the person who you carry to the coverage than the person who you carry to the graveyard to the cemetery.

00:34:31--> 00:34:39

You think you are taking him to his final destination. But actually he is taking you to show you your destination.

00:34:42--> 00:34:43

You're not taking he's taking you

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

and he's taking us here's your guide.

00:34:48--> 00:34:48

He is a guide

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

and he's taking you

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

to show you

00:34:57--> 00:34:58

the final destination

00:35:01--> 00:35:13

That's when we go to the cemetery we greet the people in the cemetery, those who are buried, they don't hear us. But we say because you're sending them, you're not talking to them.

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

So please be on you or people of the graves.

00:35:20--> 00:35:21

And we soon we will be joining.

00:35:25--> 00:35:34

What is that? That's a reminder to myself, when I'm saying that I should be hearing it also,

00:35:36--> 00:35:40

when I go to the grave of my parents,

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

out of the graves of my friends,

00:35:45--> 00:35:54

to make dua for them, you can make them from wherever you are from your home, you don't have to go to the gateway. But if you do go, and that's what you go there for,

00:35:55--> 00:36:06

you do not go to the graveyard for anything other than to seek forgiveness. And make dua for the person who is whose grave it is.

00:36:09--> 00:36:16

Please don't go there and ask them for favors. And do things like this which are share can be that

00:36:18--> 00:36:25

by all means, go to the 70. But go to do what I'm told us to do, which is to seek forgiveness for the people who are worried.

00:36:30--> 00:36:39

So the point I want to make for you is that shaitaan plays this game. And as I told you, he plays again with people who are intelligent, because and who are educated.

00:36:40--> 00:36:45

Because he gets them, he spins them and he gets them caught in this.

00:36:46--> 00:36:47

How and why business.

00:36:50--> 00:36:56

It gives them God by the fact that they are not able to see

00:36:57--> 00:37:01

the difference between the how and the way

00:37:04--> 00:37:10

they think both are the same. quite obviously, both are not the same, both cannot be the same.

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

But because

00:37:13--> 00:37:14

eyes are clouded

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

shatta has covered up and blindfolded us,

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

we don't see that.

00:37:23--> 00:37:25

So we get involved in the how

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

and we have discussions on it and we you know we talk about it and we argue about it.

00:37:34--> 00:37:38

But we do not think and say

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

that

00:37:41--> 00:37:49

how is it that I am saying all this, but I my life still is the same.

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

Nothing has changed my life.

00:37:53--> 00:38:02

I am saying that disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala attracts the punishment of Allah or attracts these tests.

00:38:05--> 00:38:11

But if I look at my life, whatever disobedience I was doing, continues.

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

How can this be written

00:38:15--> 00:38:24

anywhere near myself? Allah subhanaw taala made rules. And those rules apply to everybody, Muslim or non Muslim.

00:38:25--> 00:38:29

If I want to protect myself from those rules,

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

then I must look at what I'm doing.

00:38:33--> 00:38:34

And we'll look around life.

00:38:36--> 00:38:39

And I must satisfy myself that I'm what I'm doing is right.

00:38:42--> 00:38:43

If I don't do that,

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

then I will not get results.

00:38:49--> 00:38:54

Then I will be caught in the mess. I one of the sisters Allah subhanaw taala made

00:38:55--> 00:39:00

the rules to control and to run the physical world which we call the rules of physics,

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

the laws of physics

00:39:03--> 00:39:07

and others rhondella made rules to control our

00:39:09--> 00:39:15

social, political, and our spiritual world.

00:39:17--> 00:39:21

These are the rules that we know as the rules of the or aaronson

00:39:23--> 00:39:23

rules of the Sharia.

00:39:25--> 00:39:29

And just like going against a

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

physical law

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

will be detrimental.

00:39:35--> 00:39:37

So also an even more so

00:39:39--> 00:39:55

going against the social and spiritual law is equally and more detrimental because the detrimental effect of the physical law and with his world with his life, whereas the detrimental effect of the social and the spiritual law continues after we die.

00:40:01--> 00:40:02

This is the problem.

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

This is what we must address.

00:40:07--> 00:40:24

ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to understand the difference between why and how. And to focus on the why understand the how but focus on the why and ensure that we remove all those conditions from ourselves which attract the anger of Allah.

00:40:27--> 00:40:35

And we seek forgiveness of Allah and we live our lives in a way where we attract the mercy of Allah

00:40:36--> 00:40:42

was Allah Allah will carry while he was at with me without me going onto labor costs
