My brothers and sisters,

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

let me remind myself of you

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

3 hadith of Rasulullah.

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

The first hadith is from Sahib Bukhari narrated

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

Jabin Abdullah.

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

Rasulullah

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

said,

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

Allah

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

will not be merciful to those who are

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

not merciful to mankind.

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

Allah will not be merciful

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

to those who are not merciful to the

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

people.

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

The second Hadith is from

00:00:50 --> 00:00:52

Umun Momineen Aisha Sadiq

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

who

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

said

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

that Rasulullah

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

said,

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

by his good character,

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

by his good character,

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

a believer, a Muslim,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:07

a woman

00:01:07 --> 00:01:11

will attain the degree of one who prays

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

during the night

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

and who fasts during the

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

day.

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

By his good character,

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

a believer

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

will attain the degree

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

of one who prays

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

during the night, meaning

00:01:28 --> 00:01:31

and who fasts during the day. And this

00:01:31 --> 00:01:32

is Sunan Abidau.

00:01:33 --> 00:01:34

The 3rd Hadith

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

narrated by Abu Huraira

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

Rasuul

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

said, Verily

00:01:40 --> 00:01:42

those of you

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

who are

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

closest to me, who will be closest to

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

me

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

on the day of judgement

00:01:50 --> 00:01:52

are those of you with the best character

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

in this world.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

Those of you who are closest to me,

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

who will be closest to me

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

on

00:01:58 --> 00:01:59

the day of judgment

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

are those who

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

have the best character

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

in this life, in this world.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

I remind myself and you of this for

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

a very simple reason. The reason is,

00:02:11 --> 00:02:14

that today may Allah have mercy on us,

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

when

00:02:16 --> 00:02:18

we suddenly wake up to the fact that

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

we are Muslim,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

or we get concerned about religion, we get

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

concerned about learning Islam,

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

We focus straight

00:02:26 --> 00:02:28

towards Masa al Afiq.

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

You can't even recite Surat Al Fatiha correctly.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

You have no clue about tajweed.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

If you ask how much Quran have you

00:02:36 --> 00:02:38

memorized you don't even know

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

maybe quarter of a juice.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

But the first thing you look for is

00:02:43 --> 00:02:44

Masai.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:47

And then even the Masai. I can understand

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

if I go and look for a Masala

00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

which relates to my life, which I am

00:02:51 --> 00:02:52

trying to clarify

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

for myself. No.

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

The idea or the reason to look for

00:02:56 --> 00:02:58

masala is to argue with people.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

You find a and now you find fault

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

with this one and that one and so

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

on and you are you behave

00:03:04 --> 00:03:05

without other

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

with your elders, with your teachers.

00:03:09 --> 00:03:12

And we consider this to be sign of

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

great knowledge. Oh, I got so much knowledge.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:14

I can even

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

humiliate

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

the imam or the shaykh or my father

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

or whoever.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25

So let me tell you 2 true stories.

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

One is a story

00:03:28 --> 00:03:31

narrated by Abdullah ibn Mubarak,

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

who is among those who is called

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

the Amir

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

or the Sayyidu Tawein.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:45

Uthavayin has ambushed these people.

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

One of the greatest scholars of this deen.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

On a side note, Abdullah bin Warak

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

said, I spent 30

00:03:55 --> 00:03:57

years 30 years learning

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

before I started learning.

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

30

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

years learning

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

before I started learning.

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

Anyway, the story is

00:04:09 --> 00:04:12

Abdullah Ibn Warrag went for Hajj. He completed

00:04:12 --> 00:04:12

Hajj.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:14

After that,

00:04:15 --> 00:04:16

he was resting

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

one day

00:04:18 --> 00:04:20

sleeping. He fell asleep in the shade of

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

the Kaaba.

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

And he saw a dream.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

In this dream he saw 2

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

malaikas

00:04:28 --> 00:04:29

talking to one another.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

And one of the angels said, this year

00:04:33 --> 00:04:36

Allah has not accepted the Hajj of anybody.

00:04:38 --> 00:04:41

Sabdulillah Mubarak also said, I bid Hajj and

00:04:41 --> 00:04:42

Allah has not accepted it.

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

This engineer is saying, to this year Allah

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

has not accepted the Hajj of any of

00:04:47 --> 00:04:47

the hujj.

00:04:49 --> 00:04:51

The second angel said, but however,

00:04:52 --> 00:04:53

because of

00:04:54 --> 00:04:56

and he named a man. He said, because

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

of such and such,

00:04:58 --> 00:05:00

who lives in such and such a place,

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

and he named a place in

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

Damascus.

00:05:08 --> 00:05:10

Because of that man Allah accepted the Hajj

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

of everyone.

00:05:11 --> 00:05:14

So one angel said Allah did not accept

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

anybody's Hajj, the other said, however, because of

00:05:17 --> 00:05:20

that bad Allah accepted the Hajj of everybody.

00:05:21 --> 00:05:23

Abdul Arum Barak woke up.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:26

Now this dream

00:05:27 --> 00:05:28

affected him.

00:05:28 --> 00:05:29

So he decided

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

since the name of the person and the

00:05:32 --> 00:05:34

place where he came he was from was

00:05:34 --> 00:05:36

named in the dream, he decided to go

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

there. So he went.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

He found this man. This man was a

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

cobbler. He was a shoemaker.

00:05:43 --> 00:05:45

Who are the man who make shoes?

00:05:47 --> 00:05:49

So Abdullah Mubarak said to him,

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

Mubarak, he said,

00:05:52 --> 00:05:53

Hajj Mavrok,

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

I believe you did Hajj. Allah has asked

00:05:54 --> 00:05:56

for Hajj. He said, no I didn't go

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

for Hajj. He said, what?

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

You did not go for Hajj? He said,

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

no.

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

So he said then

00:06:08 --> 00:06:10

tell me the story. But how come

00:06:11 --> 00:06:12

you did not go for it? You were

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

supposed to go? He said, Yes. I was

00:06:13 --> 00:06:14

supposed to go.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

But you did not go. I said, No.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

I did not go. He said, Why?

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

The man said to me, I say, I

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

am a poor man.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:26

I only repair shoes. So how much money

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

do I make?

00:06:27 --> 00:06:31

But over many years, maybe 30 years or

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

something, I collected a little bit

00:06:34 --> 00:06:36

until I had enough money to go for

00:06:36 --> 00:06:37

Hajj this year.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:41

I had everything ready. I was about to

00:06:41 --> 00:06:43

go for Hajj. So I

00:06:44 --> 00:06:45

went around to meet

00:06:46 --> 00:06:49

the people of, you know, family and community.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

Unfortunately,

00:06:50 --> 00:06:51

we

00:06:51 --> 00:06:54

have lost everything, all our other.

00:06:58 --> 00:06:59

We don't when you go for Hajj, you

00:06:59 --> 00:07:01

don't even go and meet your own elders.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

What do you think they will do? Steal

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

from you?

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

They will give you dua. You go say,

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

I'm going for Hajj, you say, oh, Mela,

00:07:09 --> 00:07:10

bless you and dua. No. You don't need

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

the dua. You want to go Anyway,

00:07:14 --> 00:07:15

so he said I went around to meet

00:07:15 --> 00:07:17

the people and he said I went from

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

house to house, I bet people and so

00:07:18 --> 00:07:20

on, and you know, they blessed me and

00:07:20 --> 00:07:21

they made the offer me so on. He

00:07:21 --> 00:07:23

said finally it was getting late in the

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

evening, almost dark,

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

I went to my neighbor's house

00:07:28 --> 00:07:30

and I smelled roasting meat.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

So he said, I felt angry, I was

00:07:33 --> 00:07:35

walking around all day. I was also angry.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:37

They opened the door

00:07:37 --> 00:07:39

and I met my neighbor, my neighbor, I

00:07:39 --> 00:07:41

told him he said, may Allah bless you

00:07:41 --> 00:07:43

and accept your husband, and so on and

00:07:43 --> 00:07:44

so on. And then he seemed to be

00:07:44 --> 00:07:45

shutting the door.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:48

So he said, out of you know, because

00:07:48 --> 00:07:51

he is my neighbor, I am formal with

00:07:51 --> 00:07:51

him.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:53

I I said to him, this is very

00:07:53 --> 00:07:55

strange. I come to your house at this

00:07:55 --> 00:07:57

time. You have meat cooking. I can smell

00:07:57 --> 00:08:00

the smell of the meat, and you don't

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

invite me to have

00:08:02 --> 00:08:03

dinner with you.

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

So he said, the man started crying.

00:08:07 --> 00:08:10

And he said to him, my brother,

00:08:11 --> 00:08:13

this meat is not halal for you.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:15

So

00:08:15 --> 00:08:17

this man said, how what kind of thing?

00:08:17 --> 00:08:19

How is the meat? You are Muslim. I

00:08:19 --> 00:08:20

am Muslim.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:23

How is the meat not halal for me

00:08:23 --> 00:08:24

and it is halal for you? How is

00:08:24 --> 00:08:25

it possible?

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

When I first came into this community, there

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

were people who invited me to their house

00:08:31 --> 00:08:33

and they would say, Sheikh, this chicken is

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34

not for you

00:08:34 --> 00:08:35

because it is not.

00:08:36 --> 00:08:37

So I said, if it is not for

00:08:37 --> 00:08:38

me, how is it for you? I thought

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

we have the same religion.

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

We have gone over that now.

00:08:42 --> 00:08:44

So this man says to him, this meat

00:08:44 --> 00:08:46

is not halal for you.

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

Said

00:08:48 --> 00:08:48

why?

00:08:49 --> 00:08:51

He said the reason it is not halal

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52

for you is because this is the meat

00:08:52 --> 00:08:53

of a donkey.

00:08:55 --> 00:08:57

And the reason it is halal for me

00:08:57 --> 00:08:59

is because we me me, and my family

00:08:59 --> 00:09:01

have been starving for the last 3 days.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:03

We have had nothing to eat. We are

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

on the point of death. I went allowed

00:09:05 --> 00:09:07

to find something. I found a dead donkey,

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

so I cut a piece of meat from

00:09:08 --> 00:09:10

that. That is the meat. You cannot eat

00:09:10 --> 00:09:11

it because it is not halal for you.

00:09:11 --> 00:09:13

We can eat it as halal for us.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

This governor said, I went home,

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

I took all the money I had for

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

the hajj, I brought it and gave it

00:09:21 --> 00:09:23

to this man and he

00:09:23 --> 00:09:25

said, I told him to keep it and

00:09:25 --> 00:09:26

use it because you need it more than

00:09:26 --> 00:09:28

me and I did not open it.

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

Abdullah ibn Mubarak said to him, Subhanallah,

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

Allah

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

accepted

00:09:35 --> 00:09:36

the Hajj of everybody

00:09:37 --> 00:09:38

because of you.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:40

And you did not even go for Hajj.

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

This is the power of akhlaq.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:49

This is the power of Ikhlaq Suniya. Yesterday,

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

Sheikh gave a beautiful.

00:09:55 --> 00:09:56

The man was not a great scholar. He

00:09:56 --> 00:09:57

was not a great scholar. He was

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

not Mufti. He was not nothing.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:02

He was a kind man.

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

Last story.

00:10:06 --> 00:10:07

Happened,

00:10:08 --> 00:10:09

I think this year or last year.

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

There was a man in Egypt

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

who had a dream and in this dream

00:10:16 --> 00:10:17

he heard a voice said,

00:10:19 --> 00:10:21

take your neighbor. And neighbor's name is to

00:10:21 --> 00:10:23

take your neighbor with you for.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:26

He woke up.

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

So he said, okay, some dream, you know.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:30

I don't know what sorry. Take

00:10:30 --> 00:10:31

my neighbor.

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

Next day, he had the same dream.

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

Take your neighbor for Umrah.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:40

So now this dream bothered him. So he

00:10:40 --> 00:10:43

went to a sheikh who interpreted dreams and

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

asked

00:10:43 --> 00:10:44

him, what is the story?

00:10:46 --> 00:10:47

So the sheikh said

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

to him, see today what happens.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:51

Then come back.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

He slept that night and he had the

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

same dream again. Take your neighbor for a

00:10:56 --> 00:10:57

moment.

00:10:58 --> 00:10:59

So this man went back to the Sheikh.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:00

He said, Sheikh, 3 times I saw the

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

same dream. That this I am getting this

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

hookup to say take the neighbor.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:07

So the Sheikh asked him, who is his

00:11:07 --> 00:11:09

neighbor? He said, Sheikh my neighbor,

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

he never comes to the masjid. As far

00:11:12 --> 00:11:13

as I know, he never prays.

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

Nothing.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

And this dream, there's a voice telling me

00:11:19 --> 00:11:20

take him for.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

The man has not even come for.

00:11:23 --> 00:11:24

Which?

00:11:25 --> 00:11:27

So he said to him, just do it.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:29

Just go and do it.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:32

So the man said, okay. He went to

00:11:32 --> 00:11:33

the neighbor's house,

00:11:34 --> 00:11:36

and he said to the neighbor, I want

00:11:36 --> 00:11:37

to take you forever.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

The neighbor says, I

00:11:39 --> 00:11:41

don't even pray. You want me to take

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

over?

00:11:43 --> 00:11:44

He said, I want this is my dream.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:45

I saw the dream. I have to take

00:11:45 --> 00:11:46

it.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:47

So then he was like, I don't even

00:11:47 --> 00:11:49

know how to pray. The man said, I

00:11:49 --> 00:11:51

will teach you. He said, I don't know

00:11:51 --> 00:11:52

how to make. He said, no. I'll teach

00:11:52 --> 00:11:53

you how to make.

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

Let us come and I'll pay for everything.

00:11:56 --> 00:11:57

You don't have to pay anything. I just

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

come. He said, okay.

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

So the man taught him to make wudu,

00:12:01 --> 00:12:03

he taught him to pray and this man

00:12:03 --> 00:12:04

went for Umrah.

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

When he reached there

00:12:07 --> 00:12:10

and he completed his umrah he was deeply

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

affected

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

and he would spend

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

the whole day in the harab

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

and he would be weeping all the time.

00:12:16 --> 00:12:18

And he told his neighbor, he said, You

00:12:18 --> 00:12:19

know, I really

00:12:19 --> 00:12:21

wasted my life, wasted my time. I never

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

went to the mosque. I never prayed. Subhanallah.

00:12:26 --> 00:12:28

Next day, the same thing. He asked him,

00:12:28 --> 00:12:30

can I can I go to the haram?

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

They were in the hotel or something. He

00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

said, mother, go. You go. No problem. Go

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

to the Haram. You will spend as much

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

time as you want.

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

So the next day he went. 3rd day

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

he went.

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

3rd day till the evening the man didn't

00:12:41 --> 00:12:42

come back. So now this guy got worried.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:44

What happened to this fellow?

00:12:45 --> 00:12:47

They went and searched and searched and searched

00:12:47 --> 00:12:49

and finally they found this man in front

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

of the Kaaba in sajda,

00:12:52 --> 00:12:52

gone,

00:12:56 --> 00:12:58

died. So they sent a message to Egypt,

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

to his wife and so on, and they

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

said, well, you know,

00:13:01 --> 00:13:02

do the janazah there and let him let

00:13:02 --> 00:13:04

him be buried. Mecca was buried in,

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

Makkah.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:08

His janazah was done in the hana.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

This man, when he went back to Cairo,

00:13:12 --> 00:13:14

he went to his wife's place. This is

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

the man who died his wife's place. He

00:13:16 --> 00:13:18

said, I have to find out what is

00:13:18 --> 00:13:18

this story?

00:13:20 --> 00:13:21

How come this man who never prayed in

00:13:21 --> 00:13:23

his life, nothing comes here, he dies in

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

front of the Kaaba. What is this? So

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

he went

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

there.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:30

And he said to his wife, I saw

00:13:30 --> 00:13:32

this dream in which I was told to

00:13:32 --> 00:13:33

take your husband for over. I took him

00:13:33 --> 00:13:34

over and this is what happened.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:37

Happened. So what is the story? Tell me.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:39

Is there do you understand this? She said,

00:13:39 --> 00:13:40

yes. I understand this. I know why it

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

happened.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:42

She said, what?

00:13:45 --> 00:13:46

Yeah. She said,

00:13:47 --> 00:13:48

the reason it happened, Insha'Allah,

00:13:49 --> 00:13:51

is there is a lady who lives a

00:13:51 --> 00:13:53

few couple of houses away from us. She's

00:13:53 --> 00:13:55

an old woman. She has got nobody.

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

My husband used to go there to her

00:13:58 --> 00:14:00

house. He used to do her chores, he

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

used to clean her place, he used to

00:14:01 --> 00:14:04

make food for her, and every

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

month he would give part of his salary

00:14:07 --> 00:14:08

to that old lady.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

And every day and she said, I heard

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

this lady many times myself. She said, every

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

day this lady would say to him,

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

I have nothing to give you in return

00:14:19 --> 00:14:21

for this, but may Allah give you.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

Right?

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

I have nothing to give you in return

00:14:27 --> 00:14:28

for what you do for me, but may

00:14:28 --> 00:14:30

Allah give you a good ending.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:33

So Allah gave

00:14:36 --> 00:14:37

it. On what basis?

00:14:37 --> 00:14:39

Because of his salah? Because of his

00:14:39 --> 00:14:42

because of his quran? Because of his shikh?

00:14:43 --> 00:14:44

Because of his kindness.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:46

Because of his akhlaq.

00:14:48 --> 00:14:50

I remind myself of you,

00:14:50 --> 00:14:52

today our problem in this world is not

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

because we don't have knowledge. We have knowledge

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

but our knowledge may Allah protect us from

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

ourselves. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala said, about knowledge

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

which is not acted upon.

00:15:03 --> 00:15:05

Allah said, there are people like this who

00:15:05 --> 00:15:06

have knowledge,

00:15:07 --> 00:15:09

who don't act upon it.

00:15:10 --> 00:15:11

They are like

00:15:12 --> 00:15:13

donkeys

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

who are carrying books.

00:15:16 --> 00:15:18

Allah mentions such people who don't follow

00:15:19 --> 00:15:21

the knowledge that they know, who don't practice

00:15:21 --> 00:15:22

it and he said,

00:15:26 --> 00:15:28

They are like donkeys carrying books.

00:15:29 --> 00:15:31

The books are only a weight, and they

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

do not help the donkey at all.

00:15:34 --> 00:15:35

They carry books, as far as

00:15:37 --> 00:15:38

please

00:15:39 --> 00:15:40

get out of this

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

of knowledge.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:45

We don't need knowledge, we need a class.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

We need a class.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:50

You need a smile, you need adab.

00:15:51 --> 00:15:52

If you don't have that

00:15:53 --> 00:15:56

your knowledge will become a huja against you

00:15:56 --> 00:15:57

on the day of judgement.

00:15:58 --> 00:16:00

You will not be able to say I

00:16:00 --> 00:16:01

did not know you knew.

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

Don't fall into that trap.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:06

This is the biggest trap of shaitan. Because

00:16:07 --> 00:16:08

tempts you with that because you have become

00:16:08 --> 00:16:09

religious.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:13

So he tries this. Makes you arrogant. You

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

think you're superior to everybody else.

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

Arrogance is the slide. It's the

00:16:20 --> 00:16:21

slide into.

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

Develop kindness.

00:16:26 --> 00:16:27

Concern for people.

00:16:28 --> 00:16:29

God help people.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:31

Be kind, be courteous.

00:16:33 --> 00:16:34

And inshallah Allah

00:16:35 --> 00:16:37

will forgive us. We ask Allah for his

00:16:37 --> 00:16:39

forgiveness. We ask Allah to help those in

00:16:39 --> 00:16:42

need. We ask Allah to open the doors

00:16:42 --> 00:16:43

of his

00:16:43 --> 00:16:46

mercy and forgiveness in all of us and

00:16:46 --> 00:16:47

all those who are in need. We ask

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

Allah

00:16:48 --> 00:16:50

to help those who are in difficulties. We

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

ask Allah

00:16:51 --> 00:16:53

to help especially our brothers and sisters in

00:16:53 --> 00:16:56

Palestine and and Sudan and others where they

00:16:56 --> 00:16:58

are in terrible, terrible difficulties. We ask

00:16:59 --> 00:17:01

to keep them safe, to remove their oppressors.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:02

We ask

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

Allah to keep us safe here and to

00:17:04 --> 00:17:05

keep us in a way where he's pleased

00:17:05 --> 00:17:06

with us.
