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

Killer Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam O Allah Shara freedom ba ba mousseline

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

Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam just livan Catherine costiera My dear brothers and sisters Shangri La vizilite Allah, we are coming to the closure of our series of lectures on o'clock of the Almighty. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to enable us to practice whatever we have learnt

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

because the purpose of all learning is practice there is only one purpose and that purpose is to practice. If we learn and we do not practice, then we have not achieved anything. So, that is why it's very important for us to ensure that we practice whatever we teach or learn.

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

The world is looking for examples for role models.

00:00:56--> 00:01:04

And, and I always when myself and I tell people also, everybody listens with their eyes, they listen with their eyes, not their ears.

00:01:05--> 00:01:28

People don't care, what we say until they see what we do. And therefore, it is very important for us to keep this in mind and ensure that we walk our talk it is not sufficient to say something and then to do the opposite of that in our own lives. That completely takes away the credibility of whatever we may have said.

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

We are coming to the closure of the

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

session on

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

a collapse of Duma, D. As I mentioned to you.

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

We were looking at at of sort of the low bar

00:01:48--> 00:01:48

for car.

00:01:49--> 00:01:55

Oh about those people who Allah subhanaw taala call la vida

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

and in these

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

there are nine things that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned as the qualities of those people who he called Alibaba Rama. And

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

the set of I'd start from

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

i a number 63

00:02:21--> 00:02:46

which is where other Avenida de una de la the homeowner, what is the heart of a home Well, Jelena Carlo Salama, and it ends with the ayatollah aka zone al Horford Abby masaharu where you will akona he had the head on was alhama Holly denorfia hacer una carrera. One more karma. And last Rotella

00:02:47--> 00:02:54

mentioned this and that is the last of that set of ads, which is number 75, and 76.

00:02:56--> 00:03:10

Those who will be rewarded with the highest place in Jannah. Because of their patience, they're in they shall be met with greetings and the word of peace and respect. abiding they're in staying there and living there in

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

forever. Excellent, it is as an award and as a place to dwell.

00:03:18--> 00:03:25

Now ultramarathoner described nine qualities of these special slaves of his

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

gelato

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

which is a which we should try to inculcate in ourselves. The first one is those who walk on the earth with humility and dignity. And when the fools of the world the foolish people, if they even if they abuse them, they address them with bad words, they will abuse them and so on. Then they say salam, Salam aleikum, and they move away they do not engage with those people they do not react to them and definitely they do not respond in kind

00:04:05--> 00:04:10

number to those who spend the night before they are Robin sajida and

00:04:11--> 00:04:23

this especial reference to tahajjud and therefore, I remind myself and you let us become those people who pray tahajjud regularly

00:04:24--> 00:04:30

make this further on yourself. inshallah, may Allah subhanaw taala accept it from you.

00:04:31--> 00:04:33

Because this is among the

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

among the most important of,

00:04:40--> 00:04:49

of things that you know, we can we can think about and we are lost amount of data to help us to do that.

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

We know from the hadith of Rasulullah, Salim

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

were rasulillah salam made dua, and he said may Allah have mercy on a man

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

Who gets up at night and prays, which is for tidal and awakens his wife? And if she refuses or she's reluctant, he should gently sprinkle water on her face. And he said, may Allah have mercy on the woman who gets up at night and prays and awakens her husband. And if he refuses, she should, she would gently sprinkle water on his face. Now see the beauty of this. Were also Rosa Salaam is mentioning

00:05:32--> 00:05:48

the man and the woman separately Alhamdulillah to honor them, and so that we understand the importance of this beautiful notion of, of the hedgehog. And

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

in these people have

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

in the people of

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

those very bad Ramadan

00:06:00--> 00:06:04

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this quality,

00:06:05--> 00:06:08

specifically, where he

00:06:09--> 00:06:40

talked about those who get up in the night who spent the night before the rub in Sujata Wakayama in South Korea. And number three, the qualities and those who say our rub a word from us the trauma of jahannam verily its trauma and is ever an inseparable, permanent punishment. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to save us from the punishment of jahannam

00:06:41--> 00:06:46

we know the, again the beautiful Hadees of

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

in connection with this where

00:06:57--> 00:07:15

in the Hadith no doubt there are sola sola Sallam said when you complete McGriff Salah recite seven times Aloma journey manana seven times after you finish modem Salah pseudotsuga Allahumma June even on our Allah humma nah humma

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

nah humma nah nah

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

nah nah, Allah humma nah humma journey

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

through several times after some other Muslim

00:07:26--> 00:07:54

you say this Allah hamaji manner and wishes are observed for if you recite it and you pass away that very night, a protection from jahannam from the Hellfire would be returned for you. And when you complete Southern fudger recite the same, which is seven times because if you recite it and pass away that day, a protection from the hair of fire would be written for you. And Alhamdulillah This is a Madison

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

sauna without

00:07:59--> 00:08:37

swallows water things. These are the people who say oh our rob a word from us save us from the torment of the hellfire. Verily, it strawman is ever an inseparable permanent punishment. Number four, Allah mentioned the quality of these believers who he loves. And he called them his special slaves Alibaba man. He said they are those who when they spend, they are neither extravagant nor stingy. But they hold a medium path between these two extremes. So Allah tala is encouraging and promoting

00:08:39--> 00:08:50

being charitable, right. But at the same time, he's and he's also condemning extravagance so it's rough, showing off spending,

00:08:51--> 00:08:58

you know, mindlessly spending without any proper thought,

00:08:59--> 00:09:07

even if it is for good causes, but and definitely the surprise, spending like that definitely is highly,

00:09:10--> 00:09:43

highly condemned. And it's discouraged to do that, for ostentatious reasons. You know, like for example, in weddings and this and that, and swallows mantra saying these are the people who do not do that they are then they are neither extravagant, nor are they stingy, when there is a need to spend when there is somebody need, what you can give to do not get that today we live in a world where somebody made this proposal and said that if he had I think it was i'm not mistaken.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

Two or $3 billion.

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

He said he could eradicate poverty from the world. But of course that money is never available. So we think about that how that money even one single person can give there are people in the world today Allah has given them so much wealth.

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

That even one single person alone can write a check for that. But they don't do that matter of the heart. Number five, those who do not invoke any other Illa

00:10:14--> 00:10:24

along with Allah, so there is no shift, nor do they kill such life, as Allah has forbidden so no murder, no killing of life.

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

No hunting for sport, right? trophy hunting, all of this is haram in Islam, taking the life of a creature just for the fun of it. What is the fun? What is the fun to shoot something? How would you like to be shot by shot by somebody else? for fun? Think about that, except for just cause nor commit illegal sexual intercourse. So in this ad three things, one is check. Joining partners is Allah subhanaw taala. Second one is murder or killing of life without a reason. And third one is illegal sexual intercourse fornication and adultery. These are forbidden. So Allah said whether a man his special slaves are those who do not do these things. Number six, who repent and believe in

00:11:11--> 00:11:53

Islam and do righteous deeds, these are these are people. You're not saying these are perfect people who've never committed sin maybe they commit, maybe it happens to them, but if it happens, they do not just leave it, they take action immediately. They apologize to Allah subhanaw taala they make it stiffer and they make Toba they turn towards Allah subhanho wa mannahatta. Number seven, those who do not witness falsehood and if they pass by some evil play or evil talk, they pass by indignity. So the these are the people who do not indulge in witness falsehood, meaning any kind of thing. I mean, whether it is backbiting whether it is slandering, whether it's just a waste of time.

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

You know, whether it is

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

whether it is just

00:12:01--> 00:12:08

a people sort of, you know, music, dancing, and all these kinds of things which Islam is prohibited.

00:12:09--> 00:12:33

Allah subhanaw taala seeing here, that these are people who do not indulge in these things, and if they come by those things, they just go away from there, they don't stay there. They don't spend time in that. And they are people who have dignity, that this is one of the ayat which specifically prohibits

00:12:34--> 00:13:18

all kinds of, you know, music and so on, which is become almost a standard of entertainment, may Allah protect us, all our standards tend to be in prohibited areas. And then number eight, very important, we all commit mistakes, but the issue here is what is our attitude towards somebody who reminds us about that. So here almost rather than saying these are people who when they are reminded of the Ayat of Allah subhanaw taala, when they are reminded of the signs of Allah, the Quran, Al Karim and so on, they are not deaf and blind to them. Now, this is such an important thing that, you know, I really want to

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

want to talk about this in some detail.

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

It is

00:13:32--> 00:13:36

maybe if you think about this, you know, what, how is it that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this.

00:13:40--> 00:13:52

The point that is being made here is that these are people who when they're reminded of the Ayat of Allah, so now we're saying here, that yes, maybe I made a mistake. But what happens when,

00:13:55--> 00:14:09

when I am reminded that somebody pointed out to me, what's my reaction? Now the problem is a lot of us especially so called learner people, so called Rama or those who think they are, Allah protect us from ourselves.

00:14:10--> 00:14:19

Our natural tendency is to get angry, is to be to is to get irritated is to get angry, it's to,

00:14:20--> 00:14:34

you know, get angry with the person who pointed out the mistake, whereas we should be thankful to the person because now he pointed out the mistake, it's called rear. Otherwise, this mistake he would have made you would have made you would have made me

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

humiliated before a larger number of people, right? Because if I covered America, I made a mistake. Now, two people side they corrected me as a lambda. Otherwise, I would have made the same mistake before 2000 people. But we don't do that. This is not our nature. So it's very important to remember that wanting somebody telling us to do something good. They are doing us a favor. And that's why

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

Last marathon I mentioned this is a little unfair. Allah said Allah will not punish them while you Mohamed Salah are among them, nor will he punish them while they seek Allah's forgiveness, for whom you suffered.

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

The importance of

00:15:20--> 00:16:12

importance of seeking forgiveness. This is such a critical thing that I cannot possibly overemphasize it and so I want to say this to you, that those who seek forgiveness Allah Subhana, Allah forgives them Allah promised to forgive and inshallah Allah Subhana Allah will forgive. And that's something that we need to keep in mind that number eight, when they are reminded of the Ayat of Allah, they are not deaf and blind to them. The they don't ignore them, they don't try to pass them off. They don't say they don't argue they don't do all that right. They remember the time the person and they correct themselves the last one is they are those people who say oh our rub, bestow

00:16:12--> 00:16:22

on us from our wives and our offspring, those who will be the comfort of our eyes and make us leaders of the moutoku.

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

So this is the

00:16:27--> 00:16:39

Valentina una Ravana have Lana Amina as vergina was Nuria Tina kurata Yun y jalna, Lil mo Akina Mama, this is the dua that

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

their brother Han MC, they asked for good,

00:16:45--> 00:16:54

good children who will be a means of Sokoto jharia for them, and who are

00:16:56--> 00:17:04

you know, who are a means of benefit for them, after they are gone. Now, the

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

Think about this, the focus here

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

is on leaving a legacy of honor.

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

So that

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

while they are there, these children are good for them. And when they are gone, these children have their legacy for the world. There's a cause of diarrhea for themselves, and by their actions and so on. They are a means of higher and Baraka benefit for everybody else. The umbrella mussalam used to ask for successors to carry forward their work, unless Mandela told us about the daughter of his Khalid Ibrahim alayhi salam.

00:17:47--> 00:18:00

When he left his newborn baby is my only son in the he lives left her his wife and the newborn baby in the barren Valley of Baca. Now see,

00:18:01--> 00:18:40

what kind of dua did he make this put yourself in that place? And say that if I had to leave my wife and infant child, it's a good thing Allah subhanaw taala does not test us because if Allah had tested us, I don't know what would we do? Would we really even do this? And then we will fail in that test and we will be humiliated and punished May Allah protect us. But Allah Allah smarter knows who to test and then he tests Allah subhanaw taala supports, with his power and glory and majesty and of course nobody, not even the MBI can fulfill the tests of Allah subhanaw taala without the help of Allah. So Allah Allah subhanaw taala helps them

00:18:41--> 00:18:55

but she does that in primary Salah means we don't all story. However, Emily, Sarah was ordered to leave his wife has a Salaam and his violin is set up in this valley of burqa. So you brought them from Palestine, all the way down

00:18:57--> 00:19:40

into Arabia. And he left them there. And he turned around and he walked away as literally Salaam called Africa. Where are you going? He didn't say anything. She realized he knew what was happening. Afterwards he came all the way from there from Palestine to this place, and she must have talked to him or he must have said where are you going? What are you going to order something? So finally she asked me I you did your order you to do that? Are you doing this because Allah ordered you? And he nodded his head to indicate the affirmative. He said yes, Allah ordered me to do this. He didn't say all this, but you know by action, he said this and see her tawakkol see her trust. She said then go,

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

Allah will not allow us to perish. Because if Allah subhanaw taala ordered you to leave us here, then there is a purpose Allah subhanaw taala has his purpose, which inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will fulfill. I asked him not to give us this level of trust and historical in him and in his contract and he

00:20:00--> 00:20:57

is power inshallah so then if I will is Romany reached a place where they could not see him he turned around and he raised his hands and he made made an announcement Allah told us what do I he made he's a robina in a second to means Daria t Viva La diseases or in in the bicycle mohar Rami robina up masala Tata fudge lafrieda tamina NASS, the heavy la him was zoeken mina Samira de la la home Yes guru. He said, Oh Rob, I have made some of my offspring, my family to dwell in an uncomfortable Valley by your sacred house, in order or our up, that they may establish Allah the comedy cellar. So fill some hearts among people, among men with love for them, towards them, and Oh

00:20:57--> 00:21:06

Allah, provide them with fruits, so that they may give thanks. Now see this absolutely amazing God primary Salam was

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

an amazing person.

00:21:10--> 00:21:16

And his door and the draws of the embers of appearance of course, although he

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

inspires them to make this class, see this amazing Well, first of all,

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

in this dry, he's telling Allah subhanaw taala what he did and of course, Allah knows what he did. Allah ordered him to do it, he did it as

00:21:31--> 00:21:36

as a result of the order Allah subhanaw taala is watching Allah seeing Allah knows.

00:21:37--> 00:22:05

But this is the the state of the ABS This is the state of a widget that we put our case before Allah subhanaw taala we don't say why you know do whatever you like an up arrow and do whatever you think is correct. No, this is arrogance was never a good one like this. It was put was taught to allow Allah I am here Allah This is my need, Allah knows everything. Please give me this. And you can ask you can ask whatever you like, but say ask give me this with afia bill

00:22:07--> 00:22:26

Robinson abasement. Rolando has a solution, teach me the best dog what is the dog that I can I should do? He said, Wang girl say alone in a local area is aroma uncle makes do and say Oh Allah, I asked you for if he asked you for hierarchial avea is

00:22:27--> 00:22:34

is goodness in every way that you do safety, it is protection. It is Baraka it is

00:22:36--> 00:22:47

it is blessing it is plenty. It is freedom from water. And it is freedom from any kind of shot or any kind of evil, it's protection from all have everything together.

00:22:49--> 00:23:40

So let me just draw this draw. Let's learn and practice allow my knee as a local IP. So here he is even Emily Salam is making this door ramadasa was talking and he say Oh, by Rob, I have made some of my offspring, meaning his family, his wife and his son to dwell in an uncollectible value it is not only is this valley not cultivated, but by the look of it, it looks like it cannot be cultivated ever. Because it's a barren thing. It's only got rocks and sand there. There is no water. And it's not a I mean they can be someplace which is which has nothing. It doesn't have any fields and cultivation there. But by looking at the place humans is one this is a you know, very fertile place

00:23:41--> 00:23:44

in south south of India, the state of Kerala.

00:23:46--> 00:24:07

They say that the best they said that the reason it got its name was the first out of staters came that they saw this beautiful countryside full of coconut trees and green jungles and thick jungles and you know flowing rivers and waterfalls and so on. They said they said look at the look at this hydro law.

00:24:08--> 00:24:11

This is blessing of Allah. So the hydro law got

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

changed over the time over time to Kerala. So Allah noticed, but certainly it's one of the most beautiful places on earth, which is killed. So here

00:24:26--> 00:24:33

is the opposite term. And you see the the value of even today if you go to Makkah, now to the market is more concrete and

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

more concrete than than sand but you can just imagine what it must have been just black rocks and sand there's nothing there. And Medina is a place which has gardens and which has, you know, data orchards and so on and so forth. But Mark had nothing. NACA existed only because of trade. Macau existed because of the Kaaba and because of that people who would come for

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

pilgrimage and,

00:25:03--> 00:25:16

and to trade. So they would use, you know, the facilities there and so on. So and everything in Macau is important, all the food everything else came from outside the boundaries and I was saying, Oh Allah I have brought my family and I have put them here.

00:25:18--> 00:25:30

Next to the cabinet, the cabinet obviously had not been constructed. But wherever Islam had been given the knowledge that this place was the house of Allah subhanaw taala. There are different opinions.

00:25:31--> 00:25:50

Some people said that otherwise Salam is the one who constructed the Kaaba. And of course we know from the Quran, it says, Emily, Sarah, and is well Islam and Islam rolled up. Even when Salah was ordered to construct the counter, whether it was construction or reconstruction, Allah knows best whatever it was, that's not important. The point is that even when a salon is

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

constructed the Kaaba, and then of course, the Kaaba was again constructed by Rosa Salah.

00:25:59--> 00:26:06

both before and after he declared his, his prophethood. So here

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

he's saying, I brought my family, put them here, and then see the door he makes. Now if you and as I mentioned, if we were in his place, the first thing that I would ask for is safety for my family, so please protect them. Please give them food, provide food for them,

00:26:28--> 00:26:54

protect them from all harm because they are here alone, there's nobody for them and so on and so forth. Right I would do I would make for the protection for their sustenance and so on. But the dog the MBR fslm This is a different thing, because they have the true knowledge of what is important in life. And what is important life is the purpose of life and the purpose of life is the boss of Allah Subhana

00:26:56--> 00:27:01

Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah not created human beings and

00:27:03--> 00:27:31

jinn for anything other than my worship. So the worship of Allah subhanaw taala is the purpose of creation. And if it is the purpose of creation, then obviously this is the most important thing that a person can do. And that's what I was referencing here that Allah say, Abraham say, Allah I have brought them and put them here, in order that they may establish a Sunnah

00:27:32--> 00:28:23

the purpose of bringing them here is what that they should establish Salah, the up masala. Now, this is very very important for us to understand. Salah is the tools Allah is the means of connecting with Allah subhanho wa Taala Salah is the beginning Salah is the force Salah is the charge Salah is the fuel Salah is the tool for all kinds of success in this life and of course inshallah in the after as well. So Sarah will be seen in that context, Allah is not a burden, it's not something that Oh, one day I have to know is something which is absolutely the most critical thing and this is why whenever Listen, I'm saying this is the reason I brought them here. So first and foremost, talk

00:28:23--> 00:28:33

about the reason and then see what else is needed for to fulfill that is the up masala I brought them here so that they will

00:28:35--> 00:29:25

establish the salah, and then is this Friday, I'll be the terminus really. So fill some hearts among men with love towards them. So here we are seeing also another issue which is what happens to the person who is obedient to Allah. What happens to the person who prays what happens the person who does Salah, the one who is praying the one who is obedient to Allah subhanaw taala. The first thing that happens is that this person becomes influential, because Allah subhanaw taala will turn the hearts of people towards that person. The Hanoverians alongside the hearts of people are between the fingers of Allah subhanho the fingers as in whatever suits the grace and majesty of Allah. We do not

00:29:25--> 00:29:31

conjecture about these things, because we don't know. And there's nobody else who can answer that.

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

And so we don't say, we don't say finger looks like this. Is it a finger like my finger. And we also do not give allegories we don't say when finger means. Force hand means you know something else, and so on. And so face means something unknown, whatever it means, Allah knows. We only say what Allah subhanaw taala taught us to say and told us about

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

We only talk about that much as we know, and about these things we know. Allah said via the lochside. He said in his hand there is fire. So if somebody says does Allah have a hand we say yes. How do we know that because Allah mentioned Allah said so he said we are the elephant. What is the nature of that? We don't know. We don't know we do not conjecture we do not guess we do not try to

00:30:25--> 00:30:35

to say that this means that that means this so please understand, this is the issue of the aqeedah inshallah. So here it says that fill some hearts

00:30:36--> 00:31:08

with love for the reason is that when a person is worshiping Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala loves that person and when Allah loves that person, then the love for that person is established to our creation. And then he said an O Allah was Zuko Mina Samarra t at the alumier school to do other things. He's asking, he's not saying Allah give them a piece of driver at least no summer at fruits. He's talking about tertiary sustenance.

00:31:10--> 00:31:16

basics as soon as is understood, it will happen Allah will give Iran Islamic saying give them even more.

00:31:18--> 00:31:49

And why not allow your school so that they may be thankful? So being thankful to Allah Subhana da da starts with Salah Luca masala and it ends with the home your school, so that they are thankful a brother or sister This is the priority This is the way that we talk about because we began this by saying that they made their family make dua for good children who are watching good children

00:31:50--> 00:32:19

who live the and fulfill the purpose of their existence which is which begins with establishing of Salah which begins with worshiping only Allah subhanho wa Taala without partners and then in influencing of people, people will love them, Why will they love them because they will be good to those people. So be good to people, serve people, help people and so on. And then Allah will give more Samara fruits, and then what must be do we must be thankful to

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

my brothers and sisters

00:32:23--> 00:32:24

and that's why I'm taller

00:32:25--> 00:32:44

than the bramalea transit RBG Ali Maki masala woman Maria de Rahman, our capaldo he said Oh Allah, oh my ROM make me one who establishes a salah and also from my offspring, our rub and accept my da. So again,

00:32:46--> 00:32:54

even when Sarah is talking about the establishment and the power of Salah, now they really were to ask ourselves

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

what is

00:32:57--> 00:33:31

happened to us that we claim to be followers of a primary Salam we claim we follow the process of Salah. Yet if we look at their lives and our life, there is a vast difference. Huge, huge, huge difference between them and us. I can understand Of course they are ambia Casa de Macedo mursaleen. I'm not saying that we have to be like them or equal to them we will not be but there is has to be some semblance of, you know,

00:33:32--> 00:33:55

of togetherness, some semblance of similarity, we cannot be in two opposite directions. If you're looking at if if for example, if I if we asked the MBA, what is your destination? Where are you headed to? What would you like to have the vision that there was a destination in general, if you ask me or I asked you what is our destination, we will say what 70

00:33:57--> 00:34:29

but if we see the life of the Gambia and if you compare that with our lives there, it's like it's like this, right? It's like this, so it's they are going one direction, we are going in the opposite direction. Now my point is that if they are going in a direction and if I am also going in the same direction, I'm not going at their speed I'm wiggling my speed which is much much much slower than their speed but at least the direction is the same that I can hope that okay inshallah if not today, then tomorrow one day I will reach them. It's not as if

00:34:31--> 00:34:53

you know, whatever it is, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us and because I'm slow I'm weak I'm all whatnot. But the Amira Salam you know the Allah give them special powers, in the sense of Allah protect them and help them there. But if you find that they are going north and south, there when he's traveling West, then where is the question of

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

similarity. I'm going in the opposite direction,

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

the umbrella masala

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

They,

00:35:02--> 00:35:05

they did not do any check. They worshiped only Allah.

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

Look at our lives.

00:35:11--> 00:35:23

They will go to their families look at our lives, they will they will go to the people around them. They came for the people around him. Who did they come from? They came for people who were not Muslim.

00:35:24--> 00:35:51

Yet they made friends with them, they treated them well, they, they became their beloved. You know, many, many of them, they accepted the message. Some of them did not accept the message. In some cases, they traveled the ambience onto a different story. But the point i'm saying is that here, the Navy never left any stone unturned that it didn't, did not refuse to help anybody. The Navy did not turn away from the people.

00:35:52--> 00:35:56

Were what is our attitude today? Where are we today?

00:35:57--> 00:36:19

We think that thou art to Islam consists of giving lectures and printing and distributing pamphlets. And you know, the streets, our catching older people on the street, asking them questions, debating and arguing and whatnot. When did we last think of the hour as something which consists of

00:36:20--> 00:36:24

giving Relief to People who are suffering, feeding the hungry,

00:36:26--> 00:36:37

building shelter for those who do not have a roof over their heads? creating opportunities, entrepreneurial opportunities, and getting jobs for those who need work?

00:36:38--> 00:36:43

Right? Did you Did we think of data in these terms?

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

And in the answer is no, I know, the answer is no.

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

Then what's the reason? Why do we not think like this?

00:36:53--> 00:37:00

My brother, sister, I seriously advise you, and I read myself, the time has come to change ourselves.

00:37:01--> 00:37:12

Too much of time has gone on centuries. We're not talking about decades. We're talking at least three 400 years, 500 years, where we have

00:37:14--> 00:37:17

lost the leadership of the world.

00:37:19--> 00:37:52

And like somebody said, you know, if we if we were a people who never did it, whenever we're leaders, we never contribute anything. We were any way useless. That one could say, well, you know, what can you expect from these people? These are people like this. I mean, they We don't expect anything great from them, because they are like that. But that's not our case. Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. That's not our case. We are not useless people. We are not people who never contribute anything. We are people who, as Muslims, we made a huge contribution to this world.

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

In every field,

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

in science and technology, in literature, in language and poetry, in, in government,

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

in social welfare.

00:38:08--> 00:38:20

Right, in the establishment of hospital, the establishment of universities, in architecture in all kinds of beautiful massage, beautiful palaces, all kinds of things.

00:38:22--> 00:38:30

We as Muslims, and in this case, it specifically the Arabs, are responsible for mapping the skies.

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

And they say that 60% of the names of stars are of Arabic origin 60%. Yet,

00:38:42--> 00:38:45

in the last 120 years,

00:38:47--> 00:38:55

only two Muslims, God the Nobel Prize for science, only two people in the last 120 years.

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

So what happened was,

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

we have to really and seriously ask these questions, and say that we have to become contributing members of society,

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

not simply consumers.

00:39:12--> 00:39:17

I think this is a this is the biggest message and this is the biggest issue that we need to think about.

00:39:19--> 00:39:24

ask Allah, Allah, to grant us and this is the concluding session of

00:39:25--> 00:39:30

this o'clock of the Almighty, ask Allah subhanaw taala. To enable us to

00:39:31--> 00:39:54

recollect, to think about and to practice, what we have learned as color to fill our lives with the higher and Baraka know, of the knowledge that we that he caused us to have to cause us to get asked Allah Subhana Allah, to make it easy for us to practice what we learned and to

00:39:56--> 00:39:58

give us the sweetness of that practice.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

So that we become inshallah means of guidance for others who may come into contact with us. Was Allah Allah Allah Allah will carry while AlLahi wa sahbihi

00:40:11--> 00:40:14

wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
