100 filomeno salatu salam ala shuffelin via even mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sliven Cassia Cassia

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

from abajo por cada Tara.

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

I la voz de la hated me know Polo.

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

Allah subhanaw taala said

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

that verily and truly, in the vigor of Allah, in the remembrance of Allah

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

is eternal called,

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

is there contentment of the heart?

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

My brothers, sisters, I remind you,

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

that awareness

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

is the root of strength.

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

Awareness

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

is the root of strength.

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

It's only

00:01:10--> 00:01:13

when somebody is aware that they

00:01:15--> 00:01:20

find strength in what they are aware of, as as DACA kids

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

and this is what

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

I was going to say here, that

00:01:29--> 00:01:34

peace of mind, lack of stress, lack of

00:01:37--> 00:01:49

being frightened, of difficulty of adversity of enemies. The root of that is to be aware of the Presence of Allah subhanho data in our lives.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

So awareness is the root of strength.

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

How do you develop this awareness?

00:02:05--> 00:02:11

The way to develop awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala a level in our lives is to make sure to Allah Subhana.

00:02:18--> 00:02:23

Allah subhanaw taala said waste as an IRA buco in Jakarta as

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

well.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

In other we did, in sort of the Brahim

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

said, Make this announcement.

00:02:34--> 00:02:41

That the one verily The one who is grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who makes sure Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who

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

will increase his bounty

00:02:46--> 00:02:54

will increase his bounty. And at the same time, Allah subhanaw taala warned those who are ungrateful

00:02:56--> 00:03:01

and he said in a zombie, Lucha de Verily, my punishment

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

is very severe.

00:03:05--> 00:03:12

There is an inner and there is a luxury, there is the lack of emphasis both in this particular

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

fraction of this is

00:03:17--> 00:03:24

so, there is a benefit in being grateful and thankful. And there is a loss in the opposite

00:03:26--> 00:03:29

in the deceit of sort of the

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

intensity of nicotine

00:03:34--> 00:03:38

in the center of the eye, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:03:40--> 00:03:53

wa Taala notes, the Hadees rasa Salah, where Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that among the people of the past, there was a man who made this drug

00:03:54--> 00:03:59

and he said rugby like Al hamdu kamayan babila geologica was he whistle tonic.

00:04:01--> 00:04:08

He's a rugby local humped. He said, Myra. All praise and all Tangs are to do to

00:04:09--> 00:04:22

come I'm Bobby how much praise and how much tax karma young Bobby Lee Jalali logic in keeping with the grace and majesty of your glorious countenance, well as he whistle tonic,

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

and in keeping with the magnificence and the greatness of your kingdom.

00:04:33--> 00:04:41

Allah subhanaw taala given these words, we asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us those words to praise him, which pleases Him to hear those words.

00:04:43--> 00:04:48

So he said Rob Bella, calhanoglu come I'm Bobby Lee Jalali YG Kobayashi muscle tonic

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

said that the recording angels

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

the caravan got even

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

they had

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

Never heard the praise of Allah subhanho wa Taala in these words.

00:05:05--> 00:05:44

So they went to Allah subhana wa Jalla. Now Allah Subhana Allah knows what the slave said, and Allah Subhana Allah knows and knows what the slave is going to say even before he was going to say it. And Allah subhanaw taala knows what the slave is going to say even before the slave is aware that he is going to say it. So whenever in the Hadees and there are many societies where we hear numbers or asylum saying that the Malika said this to Allah and Allah asked them this question, this asking question is not because Allah does not know.

00:05:45--> 00:06:12

Allah is not asking for information. Allah is asking them this question to make them repeat what they said as a proof in favor of Islam. So they will bear witness in favor of the slave on the day of judgment to say he said such and such. So the Malika goat Allah subhana wa tada and they say Allah but Allah mean, today we heard your slave praising you in a way that we have never heard before.

00:06:14--> 00:06:17

So what rewards should we write for these words of praise?

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

So Allah Subhana Allah says, What did he say?

00:06:23--> 00:06:30

So the my like I repeat the words of this avanos Ronald Allah, who said, Don't be like Al hamdu

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

lillahi wa sudanic

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

Omar Ayub, I praise you and I thank you

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

so much, in keeping with the glory and majesty of your glorious countenance,

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

of your face,

00:06:48--> 00:06:54

and in keeping with the magnificence and the greatness of your kingdom and your authority.

00:06:57--> 00:07:17

So Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla Jalla, who said to the valaika write down the words of my slave as he said them, and I will reward him in keeping with my glory and majesty, and in keeping with the greatness of my authority and Kingdom.

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

So how much is that about?

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

How much is that work?

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

Now, this is the benefit of sugar.

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

This is the benefit of sugar

00:07:40--> 00:07:44

landjaeger john Lasseter, no, this is the meaning of this act.

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

This is the manifestation.

00:07:49--> 00:07:52

Allah Subhana Allah Jalla delallo who began his column

00:07:53--> 00:07:56

with this ayat

00:07:58--> 00:08:04

after his name Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. And then al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen.

00:08:05--> 00:08:09

Allah subhanho wa Taala began his column with reminding us

00:08:11--> 00:08:26

to always make sure to always be thankful to always be grateful to always have our hearts filled with the gratefulness and thankfulness to Allah Subhana Allah Jalla, delectable for all that He has given us.

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

And what is the benefit of the sugar?

00:08:34--> 00:08:41

The first benefit of this is, we become aware of our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

I began by saying what

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

awareness is the root of strength. Awareness is the root of strength.

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

How do you become aware by making sugar by being grateful by being thankful?

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

Now when we make sugar

00:09:05--> 00:09:12

and we are thankful, we become we become aware of Allah subhanho wa Taala has presence in our lives.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

Now how is that?

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

a means of strength?

00:09:20--> 00:09:27

Being aware of the Presence of Allah Subhana Allah Jalla Jalla who in my life, how is this a means of strength?

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

It's a means of strength in two ways.

00:09:34--> 00:09:41

One is that it keeps you and me protected from sin.

00:09:45--> 00:09:55

It gives you a way, protected from sin. And second one is it takes away the fear of massive Allah.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

It takes away the fear of Viola it

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

takes away the fear of everything other than loss of a handle

00:10:04--> 00:10:07

to means and sources of strength.

00:10:09--> 00:10:14

Now, why is protection from sin? Why am I calling it a strength?

00:10:17--> 00:10:21

You might say, Well, you know, it's good to be protected from sin but how is it a strength

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

Marga Catalano writes a letter

00:10:27--> 00:10:37

to sad. Viva Casa de la who is the commander in chief of the army, which is fighting the Persians in the battle orchidaceae.

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

And says an hour and a half hour Delano is advising sad men of your castle Delano.

00:10:46--> 00:10:59

Who are these two great Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Both of them are from the Ashura Mashallah both of them are from the 10 who are promised Jenna by aerosolize arrazola in their lives.

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

One is the father in law. And the other one is their uncle.

00:11:07--> 00:11:18

So they have a family connection with an AVI Salallahu alaihe salam. They have a connection of Islam with an Ibiza Larissa, they have a connection of being his students, Elisa.

00:11:21--> 00:11:28

So, say the number of Elsa Delano is writing a letter of advice to sat in Abuja, Casa de la.

00:11:29--> 00:12:02

What does he write there? I imagine. This is the Holy Father muslimeen. I will mean writing a letter to the commander in chief of the army which is fighting on the frontier with the one of the two greatest forces in the world at the time. One was the Romans one was the Persians, is there fighting the Persians? What would you expect to see in such a letter? If I told you here was a letter sent by the halifa? To the commander in chief, what would you expect to see in this letter? battle strategy?

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

Right? deployment of troops.

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

Supply Chain Management?

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

Right?

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

What weapons how to deploy, where to go home, and so on and so on. You know what?

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

He says, keep away from sin.

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

Command your troops to keep away from sin

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

and to make power.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

This is a letter from the commander in chief and from the

00:12:42--> 00:12:48

Oliver to the commander in chief at the time of a battle, and he's talking about sin.

00:12:50--> 00:12:50

Why?

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

And the letter says this, the letter tells us why. He says keep away from sin

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

and make Toba command your troops.

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

He says because Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla Jalla Allah who gives us victory on the basis of our connection with him, he does not give us victory on the basis of our weapons and and material strength.

00:13:24--> 00:13:44

If we are not better than the enemy, in terms of our conduct and our behavior and our sins, or lack of sins, then Allah will give victory to the one who has the biggest army. And obviously the army of the Persians was 10 times the size of the army of the Muslims.

00:13:46--> 00:14:07

Now you might say, Well, you know, this is okay, good advice. But after all, the Persians were non Muslim, they were not even worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. They were mostly keen. Here were the believers they are built they believe in Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, right? And which is the biggest sin which is the biggest of sins in a[???]aka la valbona z.

00:14:09--> 00:14:15

So these people are doing the biggest sin we are not doing the biggest sin so already we are ahead

00:14:17--> 00:14:27

so what more sins I mean if I do a few more sins i mean i i don't make them away but I tell some lies and maybe I miss you know, couple of Salawat I don't pray or something. So what

00:14:28--> 00:14:34

after I have said I'll allow him to Muslim via the opposing party is not Muslim.

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

Doesn't say that Amara de la No, no, this

00:14:40--> 00:14:44

does not know this. Then why is he Why is he giving this advice?

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

Because La ilaha illAllah. Muhammad Rasul Allah is a boundary condition for the Muslims.

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

It's a boundary condition for the Muslims.

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

Without that you are not even an inside Islam

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

with that,

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

We are coming to Islam. That's it period

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

for Cotabato, Allah subhanho wa Taala. You have to do more than this.

00:15:09--> 00:15:23

You can't say my name is Abdul Rahman therefore I'm in Ghana. inshallah May Allah give us Jenna for that also, I'm not I'm not against an Allah giving gender to anybody, but I'm saying that we as Muslims are held to a standard higher than others.

00:15:25--> 00:15:26

In the Battle of her name,

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:31--> 00:15:37

began this battle by giving defeat to the Muslims.

00:15:39--> 00:15:46

When the force of heroism when they met them in the battle, in the Battle of hoonah, in the Sahaba, were

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

for the first time,

00:15:50--> 00:16:16

there were 10,000 plus of them, and they were all very well armed. And this was, this was the first time there until then the Muslims were always very few in number or the arms were, you know, they didn't have proper weapons and so on. But in the Battle of foreign aid, this was the first time where they had all the arms and everything else. And many people were feeling very happy about this fact then now we can really fight because we've got all the material we've got the Amazon.

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

And imagine, obviously, this is this is not what our solar system would have thought. And it is my kumaun It is my belief that this is not what the kabiri of the Sahaba would have thought that we are going to win because of AMS they would not have thought this.

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

But obviously somebody else was thinking and this is not my guess this is what Allah subhanaw taala told us in Surah Dawa all the is related to one end, Allah mentioned this.

00:16:45--> 00:16:53

You thought you will win because of the strength of your arms. But Allah subhanaw taala showed you defeat and the earth constricted for you.

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

Why was it not Muslim?

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

Who is a bigger Muslim than the Sahaba of Salah

00:17:04--> 00:17:07

was not fine Nevada, not fighting disbelievers.

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

So why didn't they get defeat?

00:17:11--> 00:17:18

defeat to the extent that when the first shock of battle when the awasum hit them, they turned and ran

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

the turn and ran

00:17:26--> 00:17:58

Salam in Aqua delana one of the Sahaba vs. Selim, who was a phenomenal athlete, I mean some of the stories of Salah minocqua Avalon if you hear them, it's amazing. Somebody stole the camels on Amazon seller. in Medina. So these people gave on horseback and they kill the shepherds. And they stole the camels and they were going away. Now the camels and there are people on horseback, like cavalry. Sarah minocqua delana was alone.

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

He saw this.

00:18:03--> 00:18:27

So he called out he raised an alarm. But by the time anyone can come from earlier and so on, these people would have gone. So what does delana do? Sarah minocqua vellano takes off his he pulls out his bow, he runs he he overtakes a horse turns around and shoots the shoots the rider. Then he runs into overtakes the another horse and he turns around and he shoots it.

00:18:29--> 00:18:31

Here is a man who's running faster than Ross.

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

He shot so many of them that they have the capital the runway,

00:18:40--> 00:18:48

that Salah minocqua delanco, in the Battle of Luna and he turned and ran so fast that he flashed personalism

00:18:50--> 00:18:55

and there is other sellers that looks like Zama has been scared. He said look like he's been frightened by something.

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

I was aware another Lando said only the sea will stop them.

00:19:05--> 00:19:21

He was also part of the he had recently accepted Islam he was also part of the army. He said only the sea will stop them meaning they are running now they are turned on and run only the civil stopped seven hours or whatever the law no he saw this thing and he said this is Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:23--> 00:19:30

we cannot do anything. This was the state of the Muslims. And where was the missiles Allah Rasool Allah Salam was mounted on a white mule.

00:19:32--> 00:19:40

And Nevis Allah Salam went towards the army of the halacha and he said I am Mohammed bin Abu Talib.

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

He taped to the name of his grandfather.

00:19:44--> 00:19:47

I am Mohammed. Salah Larissa

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

says an alley and another zombies grab the reins of his mule the drag tried to drag it back. They said jasola they want you if they kill you we are all finished. Drones

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

To expose yourself.

00:20:04--> 00:20:10

But NASA was not hearing any of that. It's going towards the force towards the enemy.

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

Abdullah bin Masuda delana was there.

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

And he's in the browser as alum looked here and there he saw me.

00:20:22--> 00:20:25

And he told me call the answer.

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

Specifically,

00:20:30--> 00:20:37

the anzar are the family of Rasulullah, Salah Salem, in Medina, all the people of Medina are called the answer

00:20:42--> 00:20:46

from his own family and the people our budget answer is a call the answer

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

the one on a jar with his family and the answer for all the people of Medina.

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

So

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

Abdullah Hassan says I called out Yeah, Anza.

00:21:03--> 00:21:04

And he said they came to him.

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

He said they did not turn, they did not run. He said they came to him.

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

And they came to him.

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

Like

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

the cows

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

come to protect the young.

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

I've seen, I've seen how

00:21:30--> 00:21:37

buffalo Cape Buffalo behave in Africa, when there is a threat of lions.

00:21:39--> 00:21:53

And I go to Africa go to Google Kruger Park and other places, you see a herd of buffalo and if there are lions anywhere, the buffalo do what the Africa in Africans they call it they go into logger

00:21:55--> 00:22:01

which is that all the calves all the young ones are collected in the center

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

and the adult buffaloes, this around them facing outwards.

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

And the bulldozer

00:22:10--> 00:22:29

and the and the big cows, they surround the calves facing outwards. So the Lions have their circle that and they want to attack everywhere they are seeing a pair of razor sharp horns and a boss through which even a rifle bullet will not go

00:22:32--> 00:22:48

the head of the buffalo is sort of the bone that if you fire a shot in the head unless you're using a very heavy rifle, even the bullet doesn't doesn't go inside. It's sort of and the lines are only facing that razor sharp pawns and this

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

that's called going into lager.

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

So in the Battle of honan the answer came

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

Abdullah masala delana says there may be may have been about 100 or so people

00:23:05--> 00:23:40

and they are facing a force of how many hours 20,000 bruises if and how to how was it was the was the term used for a lot of the other tribes together they were called Havas, even Manasa T for the people of type who had come to this battle and they brought all their wealth and goods and all their shackles and their cattle and everything else. That was the way of the of the Arabs when they fought at that time. The women were there, everybody was there. So they the the these 100 plus Saba handful of them were facing a force of 20,000 people 20,000 soldiers.

00:23:43--> 00:23:49

And Abdullah University says and then we saw something come down from the heavens.

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

He said we saw something descend from the heavens.

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

And he said to me, it looked like ants.

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

And they hit the Earth and this dispersed.

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

And he said the tide of battle turned.

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

And these 100 plus habba with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam with them.

00:24:18--> 00:24:23

And the forces which Allah subhanho wa Taala sent to support them which only Allah knows what those forces were.

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

They turn 20,000 of the horizon. And Muslims one one of the biggest victories of that time of history.

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

And they got more of aneema in that one battle than they had ever got. Until then.

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

So now, I'm not saying the Sahaba committed sin. But I'm saying that just this thought in the mind, that material wealth and material resources

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

can grant us victory? Allah subhanaw taala turned the tide of battle

00:25:07--> 00:25:27

as a standard with the Saba was much higher than the standard was anybody else because Allah subhanaw taala was creating a community which was going to be role models for the rest of the world in the end of till the end of time there was a gold standard against which everyone else is going to be measured. But basically that is the standard and the standard is that sin makes you weak.

00:25:29--> 00:25:40

And that is what Mr. Malhotra della is saying to satyameva Castle Delano saying, keep away from sin not because he thinks that says an Assad will come it and he said no.

00:25:42--> 00:25:58

He's saying that because he's giving advice and saying this is my advice. Keep away from sin, order your people to stay away from sin. Why because sin weakens sin decimate you, sin takes away your strength.

00:25:59--> 00:26:04

And he says Allah subhanaw taala rewards us on the basis of virtue not on the basis of material.

00:26:05--> 00:26:10

And as I said, even though the opposite side is not even Muslim.

00:26:12--> 00:26:16

Your and may simply having a man is not a sufficient condition.

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

We have to do more than that.

00:26:22--> 00:26:28

So therefore, awareness of Allah subhanho wa Taala in our lives is a source of strength. Shakur

00:26:30--> 00:26:36

reinforces this awareness it brings about the awareness and reinforces the awareness

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

which gives us to

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

two kinds of strength two kinds of broad of strength one is protection from Siena How does it give us protection from sin?

00:26:52--> 00:26:58

Because when I am aware of Allah subhanho wa Jalla Jalla Lu and I know that Allah May Allah May Allah Allah Allah

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

Allah say does you not know that realize watching?

00:27:04--> 00:27:10

That's all this the statement of Hassan al Bashir Abdullah laser, I'm ashamed to commit sin because I know Allah is watching.

00:27:12--> 00:27:23

So if you are if you have this awareness that Allah is watching, you stay away from sin. So the awareness as Allah is watching protects you and me from sin.

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

And despite that, for whatever reason, if we commit a sin,

00:27:31--> 00:27:48

this awareness will immediately make us do Toba because I'm aware of Allah subhanaw taala has presence in my life. I know Allah is watching me, I will either not commit a sin and stay away. Or even if I've done it, I just have one liners in what did I do immediately make Toba?

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

no delay.

00:27:54--> 00:28:01

The second protection, the second source of strength is that when I know that my Rob Jalla Jalla, who is with me?

00:28:06--> 00:28:12

When I know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is with me, wahoo americom Aina Macondo

00:28:13--> 00:28:19

he is with you, wherever you might be, when I know that then where is the

00:28:21--> 00:28:29

space? And where is the the the the possibility of the fear of anyone else occupying your heart at the same time?

00:28:31--> 00:28:41

How can the fear of poverty be in the heart of a person who knows that my Arab Jalla Jalla Allah Who is my Razak?

00:28:43--> 00:28:50

And he has taken responsibility for my risk? How can the fear of that be in anybody's hat?

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

How can the fear of

00:29:03--> 00:29:09

decline? How can the fear of weakness, fear of sickness whatever any, all the kinds of fears that we have?

00:29:14--> 00:29:18

How can any of those fears be in the heart of a person?

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

Who knows?

00:29:23--> 00:29:31

And remember the word I'm using his nose? I'm not saying beliefs. There is a difference between believing and knowing.

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

Believing is also important,

00:29:35--> 00:29:44

but different between believing and knowing. And what is that difference? What is the difference between believing and knowing?

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

believing is intellectual.

00:29:51--> 00:29:52

But I believe

00:29:54--> 00:29:55

but I know

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

his insight is in the heart of building

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

can be not necessary that it should be but a belief can be without

00:30:08--> 00:30:10

any action following that belief.

00:30:12--> 00:30:12

But

00:30:16--> 00:30:25

knowing automatically means that there is action. What I know I act upon right?

00:30:32--> 00:30:41

knowing and understanding that Allah Subhana Allah is my Razak. today one of the biggest fears that people have,

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

if not the biggest fear

00:30:47--> 00:30:47

is what

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

is with regard to money? Yes.

00:30:52--> 00:31:05

When parents for example, sometimes you, you know, people come to me, they come to others and say, you know, please talk to my son, Doctor, my daughter, talk to my children. I don't know what will happen to them.

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

What are they talking about that?

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

I mean, really, this is so sad.

00:31:18--> 00:31:32

I don't know what will happen to my children. Nada. He's talking about his dunya will you get a job? Will you not get a job? Will you really have some money and not have monies on so he's not he doesn't care what am i When will my son go to Jana? Jana.

00:31:37--> 00:31:43

See, Angela, yesterday and today you had these two young brothers of ours.

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

Jasmine,

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

always

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

May Allah bless them.

00:31:53--> 00:31:55

They lead Salah for us.

00:31:56--> 00:32:00

And I'm lazy anytime I find somebody who can recite the Quran well as they do it.

00:32:01--> 00:32:08

So hamdulillah saves me from the trouble of a mammoth is a bad thing. I dislike him how much is too much of trouble too much of

00:32:10--> 00:32:19

responsibility in your head and you know too much of tension. I'm far happier standing behind somebody who's presenting well and listening and trying to improve myself.

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

But imagine

00:32:22--> 00:32:26

how proud the parents must be to say I have a son who can recite Quran like this

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

and we Allah bless him even when

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

you ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept all his words.

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

How many of us have children like this?

00:32:47--> 00:32:54

And how many of us have children grown sons in their 20s who cannot even research or the father correctly?

00:32:56--> 00:33:09

How many of us have children who cannot give the exam properly? How many of us of us have children who cannot give the comment properly? How many of us have children who cannot lead salado janazah for ourselves?

00:33:11--> 00:33:15

How many of us have children who if they are asked to lead Serato further,

00:33:16--> 00:33:27

he will read Catherine in the first ayah in rocket and he will read something else. I mean, because he does not know enough Quran he cannot even recite a sutra, which is a little bit long because this was a tsunami

00:33:28--> 00:33:36

whether he would recite longer than the other Salawat How many of you and my point is if you do not have such children whose fault is it?

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

Why do you not have such children

00:33:42--> 00:33:44

and we these boys did not descend from heaven.

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

Their parents took the trouble

00:33:51--> 00:34:05

to teach them to spend some time with them to send them to good teachers to teach them and hamdulillah who is benefiting? Obviously the boys are benefiting but also the parents are very fitting hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen they obviously we are also benefiting

00:34:08--> 00:34:19

when we know that Allah subhana wa Taala is the result you take the trouble to connect to a loss manager. So when you say what will happen to my children think about that what will happen to my children in terms of dystonia.

00:34:20--> 00:34:41

dystonia is already written what will happen to your children in terms of amount of money, give them the right values, give them the right criteria and to decide in their lives what they want to do. make them understand help them to understand that it is the result of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is the most important thing is nothing bigger and more important than the result of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:34:45--> 00:34:55

So talking about his awareness that Allah is by Rajat Moussa rattle Allah is one of the great demands of the Arizona

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

and he was an environment

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

of the level I'm not putting anyone ahead and below but he was he was the mom of the level of the Imam

00:35:09--> 00:35:25

Abu hanifa Imam Shafi and so on, allows I His fatawa His rulings are referred to there they are in the books of it today they are referred to when there is a need for that. So, he was an amount of that of that level, he was an alum of that level.

00:35:26--> 00:35:38

Today, there are no followers or people following his mother, but definitely he is one of the great imams of the Zuma. Now remember, I was I was going for ombre

00:35:39--> 00:35:45

in a coffee law in a caravan when they got attacked by bandits.

00:35:47--> 00:35:59

So this caravan got it bandits and you know people are running Helter Skelter and all kinds of confusion and so on and so forth and people are getting hurt and you know, all of this happening.

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

They're getting looted.

00:36:03--> 00:36:12

And in the middle of that Mr. molars, Ira Talalay suddenly saw the leader of the

00:36:14--> 00:36:16

the leader of the

00:36:18--> 00:36:22

of the bandits standing in front of him

00:36:24--> 00:36:29

and the leader of the bandits is standing is standing in front of him and I was around today with a naked sword in his hand.

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

And he says he asked you know, who are you?

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

Who are you? What do you do?

00:36:38--> 00:36:41

similar laws around the law he does not tell him I am this big chef.

00:36:42--> 00:36:56

And I am this Imam when I have my mother and I and I am a Mufti and I have written so many books and I have you know, given so many Hatano emails it says I teach Koran to children.

00:36:59--> 00:37:00

The

00:37:02--> 00:37:03

the humility

00:37:07--> 00:37:09

of the real alama will Huck

00:37:12--> 00:37:16

you don't become an alien because somebody calls you Maulana you don't become an alien because somebody calls you chef.

00:37:18--> 00:37:23

He calls the show because you're a white beard is saying old man. You think he's a great chef?

00:37:29--> 00:37:34

He says what do you do Who are you in our lives? He says I teach children Quran

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

Caesar you teach?

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

He said yes.

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

So this man says okay reserved some foreign for me.

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

reserved some foreign for me.

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

So whenever I was allowed to lay the sides one is

00:37:54--> 00:37:57

one single line of soda to Zarya.

00:38:00--> 00:38:02

Well this summer it is Coco Mama.

00:38:06--> 00:38:11

He resides This one is but this summer it is Coco warmer.

00:38:12--> 00:38:22

In surah Rosario Allah subhanaw taala said you are risk your provisions are in the heavens are in the ER with Allah subhanaw taala and whatever you desire

00:38:23--> 00:38:25

and whatever you have been promised

00:38:27--> 00:38:31

for this summer it is Coco meets on the heavens, Amato.

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

One is

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

our assizes this man started shivering.

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

And his sword fell from his hand.

00:38:44--> 00:38:47

He says, My wrist is in the heavens.

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

This Quran?

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

You know, as I said, Yes.

00:38:53--> 00:39:08

Allah said this, this is the column of Allah. He said, Yes, he's a gentleman. He's abandoned. What does he know? Right? So he said, You are sure if this is correct, easily this Quran? Allah says, Yes, Allah says, My Risk is in heavens.

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

He said, Yes.

00:39:11--> 00:39:13

He says, then why am I doing this?

00:39:15--> 00:39:18

If my risk is in the heavens, why am I killing people?

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

Why am I robbing people?

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

Why am I doing this?

00:39:27--> 00:39:28

I did not say anything.

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

The man called his people who say come here.

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

Give back the people their things.

00:39:37--> 00:39:44

He said we make our village this job, our excuse with Allah. Why must we do this? dirty work?

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

live this.

00:39:50--> 00:39:51

return all the things

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

and everybody thanked Allah subhanaw taala they went their way

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

even outside a hotel Alyss

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

We reached Makkah, we thanked Allah subhanaw taala Alhamdulillah saved our lives saved our wealth and so on and so forth. He said, we made Amara and so on.

00:40:09--> 00:40:10

He said the next day,

00:40:12--> 00:40:14

early morning, I'm making tough.

00:40:16--> 00:40:21

And I hear somebody crying. I hear somebody weeping.

00:40:22--> 00:40:35

You know, when I was I says, I heard somebody weeping the way a mother would weep. If somebody takes her newborn child out of her arms, slits the throat and gives it back.

00:40:37--> 00:40:45

Imagine what what a horrible situation that would be. He says, weeping like that, as if everything is gone.

00:40:48--> 00:41:04

The limit of grief. He said, I heard somebody crying like this. He said, I was so disturbed. So who is it? What is this great Mustafa that has happened to this person that he is crying like this? He said, I went looking for him. Who does he find? The leader of the bandits?

00:41:05--> 00:41:11

There's a man who was with a sword. And he asked him what do you do? I remember I was I said, I teach children karate.

00:41:12--> 00:41:17

And where he resided, is I have his sama is cuckoo motto. That man

00:41:19--> 00:41:23

is sitting in the mythos in front of the Kaaba and is whipping his heart out.

00:41:25--> 00:41:31

Well, as I said, I tapped him on the shoulder The man looked at me and he said, I decided the next time

00:41:33--> 00:41:37

What is the next time for pizza? It is kokumo motto

00:41:38--> 00:41:42

for warabi sama well are they in hola?

00:41:46--> 00:41:51

For warabi sama, what are the in Hola,

00:41:52--> 00:41:55

Missy llama, and come down to

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

Allah is taking an oath by himself.

00:42:02--> 00:42:15

He's saying by your rub. Who is the rub of the heavens and the earth? This is true. In no luck, what is true of itself is Coco motto.

00:42:17--> 00:42:22

This is true. And then Allah gives an example and he says

00:42:24--> 00:42:27

mithila like, man,

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

like you talk to one another.

00:42:33--> 00:42:38

Let's give an example. If I'm talking to you, and is it really as it is here, I'm sitting in front of you. I'm seeing something you're hearing it

00:42:41--> 00:42:44

for a B, C, or D in

00:42:47--> 00:43:00

Ivanova is that man was a giant. That man was not a Mufasa rocker and that man was not a highly. He was a giant. He says he looks at me. And he says, Allah took an oath.

00:43:02--> 00:43:08

For me, Allah took an oath by himself, so that I will believe.

00:43:10--> 00:43:19

He said Allah took an oath by himself. For me, for somebody like me, he says, Why does my rod have to take an oath to tell me this?

00:43:21--> 00:43:25

Why does my Rob Jalla Jalla wa to take an oath to show to vosso that I will believe

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

allows Iran to die says the man was

00:43:32--> 00:43:44

was a giant meaning is not criticizing them and he was saying he did not have these curtains of nor to block his connection with Islam.

00:43:49--> 00:43:51

The word of Allah is to straight to the heart

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

of his summer Iris Kumar.

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

Sisters, please understand,

00:44:05--> 00:44:13

00:44:14--> 00:44:18

is 1000 times worse than the wasabi sucheta

00:44:21--> 00:44:28

1000 times was that there was hours of data because here you think you are great, you think you have knowledge

00:44:29--> 00:44:38

and that knowledge is blocking you from the from connecting with Allah Subhana Allah What is the use of knowledge which blocks you from connecting with Allah subhanaw taala remember,

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

he believes went to Ghana, not because he was a giant

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

he believes went to Ghana not because lack of knowledge, but because of lack of kosher to law.

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

He had the words he did not have the Spirit

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

alpha state law data

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

For him, Nita is the hazhar Nita

00:45:05--> 00:45:06

assassinator

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

Alpha zero J.

00:45:15--> 00:45:20

Let us be very clear let us not become like that, where we have only words

00:45:22--> 00:45:28

and the meaning of the words is not there. And that's why I said as us docket kujala

00:45:29--> 00:45:32

00:45:33--> 00:45:37

Ask yourself whose column is this? That I'm reading that I'm hearing?

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

Some eat some don't eat.

00:46:59--> 00:47:01

So if you are complaining of hunger,

00:47:02--> 00:47:05

ask yourself Have you eaten? The food was there?

00:47:07--> 00:47:08

and then on the day of judgment when is and before Allah subhanaw taala some will have all of this and some will not have them. Whose fault is it?

00:47:57--> 00:48:01

And remember, you are sitting, your appraiser advisor, you are sitting the seeker of Allah subhanho wa Taala. All of this is a bother.

00:48:19--> 00:48:23

And the clock is ticking. Hazara Hassan,

00:48:27--> 00:48:29

the banquet of Allah is spread.

00:48:30--> 00:48:36

Some take some don't take some say, Well, I'm sleepy, I'm going no problem. No problem. There's no punishment.

00:48:40--> 00:48:43

But what is it that you are leaving behind? And what are you getting?

00:48:46--> 00:49:03

I'm giving this example. Not so that I'm not trying to, you know, boost the position of the LSE. I'm giving this example because this is a choice that we have every moment of our lives.

00:49:04--> 00:49:09

Will I do something which pleases a lot? Or will I do something which pleases minus?

00:49:12--> 00:49:34

Ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to make the right choices and ask Allah subhanaw taala to reward you in keeping with his majesty and grace for the choices that you make. And to guide you to make the right choices and to reward you and we pleased with you and never to be displeased with you. Allah Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was made by Rama Tikka camino Al Hamdulillah
