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

We live in a shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

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

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shara philam bia Eva mousseline, Muhammad Rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah He was early he was he was seldom does leave on cathedra from above to let us begin by sending salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam especially because this is the night of

00:00:26--> 00:00:53

Friday. In sha Allah this is it's one of the Amal of Duma to send special Durood and Salam on the Prophet sallahu wa sallam he was do it all the time, but especially on this day and this night Allahumma Salli ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali Mohammed Kumar Selita live Rahim Allah Ibrahima innaka hidden Majid Allahumma barik ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad Kamal Baraka ally Brahim Avada libera Hema indica Hamedan Majeed

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

My dear respected brothers and sisters I assume that our sisters also hear hamdulillah and elders

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

it's absolutely delightful to be able to talk to you and I wish we could be doing this in person but anyway, this is as good as it gets otherwise other than being in person and I hope at some point in time our his geekiness will be able to turn off this thing which is going Ting Ting Ting Ting all the time is very tainted, please. Please turn it off.

00:01:32--> 00:01:39

Now the I want to begin because this is the topic of today is on letter to cover. And so I want to begin with

00:01:40--> 00:01:46

reminding myself and you about what Allah subhanaw taala said about this night of letters ricotta.

00:01:47--> 00:01:52

Allah subhanaw taala said I was we live in a shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

houfy Laila till called while

00:01:58--> 00:02:06

the rock Amma Laila to call Leila to Calgary Pharaoh min l Fisher. Then as

00:02:08--> 00:02:16

you go to war roofie Harvey the near a be him call Lea said he had

00:02:20--> 00:02:52

a loss around Dennis Ed, which means very Lee we have sent this down on data to recover by this is meant the Quran will carry the noozle of the Quran, in its complete form was sent on letters will cover and then it was revealed to Surah Salah over a period period of 23 years, as the case demanded. But Allah said we sent this, this Quran down on the throat and then Allah subhanaw taala is drawing our attention to the night and saying oh my god, I can relate to God how will you know what

00:02:53--> 00:03:33

it's like saying? Allah says I know the importance would How can you how can you understand the importance? So it's for us to think about this and say that something was Allah subhanaw taala praised how superior that must be. And then Allah said they have to say you don't mean official, this one night is better than worshiping Allah subhanaw taala continuously non stop for 1000 months and that is at three years and four months and Allah is not saying it is equal to that Allah say hi room min. Allah says this is better than that. How much better better in keeping with the grace and majesty of my Arab delusional

00:03:35--> 00:03:54

then as the lower 10 As Allah Allah him I am terza robot I go to a roofie hobbies the rugby mill Cooley amor Salah money tomato, Al Fajr Allah SWOT analysis on this day, on this night, the melodica The angels descend, wa salam descends with peace and harmony and tranquility until the morning comes. Now.

00:03:55--> 00:04:00

Having said that, we must also understand that when is that?

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

Is it the 27th is the 23rd is 29th 21st Which of which night? The answer is we don't know. The answer is we know what also told us what did he tell us? He told us to search for Leila, to cover in the last 10 nights of Ramadan al Karim in the ordinates. So it could be 21st 23rd 2527 or 29. And this is the hikma of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:04:31--> 00:04:50

Allah subhanaw taala had told me the exact night but he made me forget. So if a surah Salah Salem is saying if Allah made me forget, we know two things. Number one, that there is higher there is blessing and Baraka in that forgetfulness. Because if we had known only one

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

one night, then we would have worshipped us Rajala in the one night but Allah gave us the opportunity to worship Him in

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

was a very beautiful,

00:05:04--> 00:05:16

very beautiful period of time where there are huge rewards, irrespective of whether it is their true color or not. So Allah gave us this opportunity. Number One Number two

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

is

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

also Ross doesn't give us some indicators.

00:05:22--> 00:05:27

Now he told us, for example, that the morning after the sun will shine

00:05:28--> 00:06:12

in subdued light, there will not be harsh rays of the sun. He said in some cases it might even rain. Now think about this Surah Surah Salam could have easily told us also what would have been the situation the previous sunset, the sunset before the night he would have given me she's giving some signal some signal some indicators can be any time. So you could have said well, the the previous night, the previous sunset will be this way, this way, this way. So now we watch the sunset, which okay right now, this is the night and today I will worship. He didn't do that. He gave us indicators of the day after. So imagine now that I wake up in the morning, and I see the sun is shining with

00:06:12--> 00:06:19

subdued light and there is a brain I also want Allah last night was there. Very nice. What were you doing? And

00:06:20--> 00:06:25

if last night was there, it will cover what were you doing? Or I was maxing out on?

00:06:26--> 00:07:07

All I was maxing out on Netflix. Right? I was I won't go beyond this. So my point is that I was doing all that. So what good what good is that knowledge to me now that last night was the cover? I lost it anyway. On the other hand, if I had been engaged in the worship of Allah subhanaw, taala, and vicar and vigor and devour the Quran, and so on, then Alhamdulillah I got laid to recover. I'm very happy. There is Hickmott in this. So anyone who says that I know what I have to cover is on 27 The water then that person is claiming to know more than the VLA Sir, I'm new. And we know what that means. So all of those statements just ignore them makes no difference many of the Sahaba did is

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

they had and they said that they gave us basically this letter to cover what and there are there are there are stories of this ABA for all the Knights. There's somebody who's a little cousin is 27/21 23rd 27th and so on so forth. Now, how do we understand that because we know this ABA not lying? So how do we how do you understand if somebody says For example, if they're if they're bossa nova, he said that lead recorder is 27th. Now, how do we understand that statement? My understanding of that statement is if their boss or the llano is speaking about what about that particular night that year, he is not saying henceforth later, Carter will be on 27th every year until the until the

00:07:46--> 00:08:26

end of the earth. He's not saying that he could not possibly say that, because if he said that, that he is saying something which solar system did not say and against what he said this, we don't expect this for the Sahaba they will never they will never do that. So what he's saying is just like what you might say what I might say, well, after that phase, this one was also Mandla last night, which then was it? It was 27 it was 29 it was 25 No problem, because we are talking about a particular night in a particular year. So please understand this. There is a general cultural thing. Almost everywhere in the world. Were 27 This taken as Laila to color. Believe me, this is false. This is

00:08:26--> 00:09:05

wrong. There is no evidence for this. Whoever is saying that is saying something with the Rasul alayhi salam did not say it's as simple as that for me and also I suggest that for you, when there is the word of Rasul Allah is Allah Salam, we cannot we do not we should not accept anybody else's statement no matter who that person is. Because for us Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam is supreme, there is no one who exceeds in rank in closeness with Allah subhanaw taala in knowledge of the rave which Allah gave him, and so on and so forth. Then Rasulullah Salallahu Salam, this is the final authority, this is the final line, if he said something, we accept it. And so also in this

00:09:05--> 00:09:44

particular case, now, our mother say the Aisha said the Caravelle Anna, she asked him she also you always asked the dutiful question. So she asked him he said you can see the seeds he or she will see what she does he he says the IRIS will if I find it to cut the wire What does he mean by if I find what she planted to sleep the whole all the all the nights of Ramadan? If I find no, if I find meaning, I don't know where it is. Why does she not know when it is when she is the wife of the NABI Anna is Salam, his favorite wife, our mother, she is so virtuous and so beautiful that Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran about her and so to know

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

why don't you know because nobody knows.

00:09:50--> 00:09:56

So understand it. So what it is he said jasola If I find Leila to cuddle, what must I ask Allah

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

and also love the resonant daughter the beautiful dua

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

Which of course all of you know I remind myself when you allow me in for one to have bull alpha for our for honey Allah my nigga for one to headbutt alpha for Anna I make the door for all of us alarm in the iPhone to headbutt Apple for an hour for only for myself andavar Everyone now what is the what is the meaning of that da Allahumma in Naga forward Oh Allah you are the Forgiver you are this is your name this is your title this is your your Sifford this is the the attribute the glorious attribute of you go for Rahim Ronald Rahim. You are the Forgiver in the guy forward table alpha and you love to forgive. You are the Forgiver you love to forgive five one therefore forgive me.

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

I just see

00:10:51--> 00:11:00

Allah to math Carnevale to math Karna to mark carta to market Nevada today Mark Carney gosh oh, a pro shop ruggedly

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

William I've got them.

00:11:03--> 00:11:47

I'm not saying I deserved before you know, you're like you like to do it. So you do it. You do it even though I don't deserve to do I don't deserve it. See the beauty see the humbleness, see the humility see the this dua which was not the best of them, I just did they are the Allah Juana. Now, my reflection to myself and you. Ramadan Algrim Allah sent why? Allah Subhana Allah said I'll be laminated on the redeem. Yeah, you will Adina Armano quotevalet qubole CRMO coma cootie Bala Levine Amin Kabila como la la quinta taco, Allah della Xin O you who believe fasting has been prescribed upon you, as it had been prescribed for people before you so that you may become Motoko? Who is a

00:11:47--> 00:12:02

Moto G and Moto G is somebody whose whole life runs on only one principle. It's very simple. Islam is the simplest, the most easiest thing to understand. Just one simple principle what is that? Does it please Allah?

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

Does what Please Allah, everything I say everything I do?

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

Does it please Allah? Can you think of anything? We just simpler than this?

00:12:13--> 00:12:22

No obligation? Absolutely no obligation? I want to say something before that. My tape is reading my mind. I want to say something. Does it praise Allah?

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

If the answer is yes, by all means, be said, If the answer is no.

00:12:29--> 00:12:37

If the answer is I don't know. Which is possible. I want to say something I'm not sure should I say verify before you speak.

00:12:38--> 00:12:46

As somebody who knows I want to do something, some transaction, I want to buy something I want to sell something, right? Whatever.

00:12:48--> 00:13:06

Then what must I do? Same thing, does it please Allah? This way in which I'm buying this, the thing I'm buying and the method of buying? Does it please Allah? Yes, it is fine. Go ahead, do it. No, not fine. There is interest in it. There's bribery, there's this, this this, don't do it.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

If it's a matter of doubt, ask

00:13:11--> 00:13:23

these principles to be applied throughout life. The one who does that is the Motoki, about the key is the one who is afraid to display is the one he or she loves the most.

00:13:25--> 00:13:37

So the more the hope of Allah subhanaw taala increases in our hearts the more the love of Allah subhanaw taala in permeates our entire existence, the bore the fear of offending the one we love also increases

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

Devika booked again and for the Buddha here is what Al Qaeda to deal with Turkey and Allah said Al Qaeda is for you.

00:13:47--> 00:13:52

Allah said accurate Jana is yours who will walk you through

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

a Lavina

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

in Georgia moment and Allah says they are the body's own they are the inheritors of Jana.

00:14:03--> 00:14:23

Jana to fulfill those whom we have Holly door they are the inheritors of genital for those where they will stay forever. Ask Allah Subhana Allah Jalla Jalla Lu to grant this to all of us and may Allah subhanaw taala gather us together in general for those in the shade of his arch at the feet of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam inshallah

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

now

00:14:26--> 00:14:30

Therefore Allah subhanaw taala told us this is why I sent Ramadan

00:14:31--> 00:14:41

so what is the first thing we need to ask ourselves? Did I succeed? Ramadan came to make me and will Turkey have I become okay

00:14:43--> 00:14:50

because if our Ramadan is the month it will come into the bow, right another three days, maybe four days, God

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

So what changed?

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

Even though Josie Talalay one of the great scholars of this

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

When he said when the racehorse

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

a Malakpet example the

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

manager will tell you

00:15:09--> 00:15:21

even God said Raja larae When the racehorse sees the finishing line, he exerts himself even more, he puts his whole heart and soul into running because he knows he has to win the race.

00:15:22--> 00:15:35

Even though the rounds Allah said do not be less wise than a horse, at least have some heart sense. You may have begun Ramadan in a weak way, but n strong,

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

finish strong.

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

And that's the opportunity we have finished strong

00:15:42--> 00:16:22

no matter how we began, right ideally speaking, we should begin strong and finish strong. But okay, so we got involved in this that whatnot. Now, let us do it ourselves. I've got three days left, four days left, let me make sure that these three four days are the best image because the reality of life is and this is true for for everything in life for the whole of life. And for everything in life. It doesn't matter how you start it doesn't matter what happens throughout the winners are decided only at the end of the race, every race whether it's by life or whether it's a physical base in terms of sports of whatever the winners are decided only at the end of the race

00:16:24--> 00:16:32

so while the race is going on everyone is equal we don't know who will come out from behind and take off and when the rest we don't know this

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

so hamdulillah right now we are in the race our race will end when we see Well a good months may Allah make that the most beautiful day of our lives inshallah

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

but that will happen not simply by wanting it

00:16:51--> 00:17:01

nothing happens by wanting if things happened by wanting all those young fellow sitting on the right there Why can't see in the in his camera they would all be married by now.

00:17:03--> 00:17:07

Right if only things which happened my only by wanting

00:17:08--> 00:17:14

then all of you guys your wives would have been your slaves who read your archaea. Well, Amara

00:17:16--> 00:17:24

Harry wanting Rachel Virbhadra miracle Sega one miracle atta boy gotta miss

00:17:27--> 00:17:43

you want to say one thing is not enough we have to do something Allah subhanaw taala made this world a place of action you want something you do something? The wanting alone is not enough. So let me ask myself when you ask yourself

00:17:45--> 00:17:49

Is there a change in me from Ramadan to now?

00:17:51--> 00:17:51

What is that change?

00:17:53--> 00:18:04

So in these days, please sit down to actually sit with a pen and pad and pen and write down what is the change in me has my thinking changed? Has my attitude changed? Has my

00:18:05--> 00:18:13

my my approach to Allah subhanaw taala has changed, has my tongue changed? Has my behavior changed I

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

make notes

00:18:16--> 00:18:21

because that will show whether Ramadan was useful or not useful.

00:18:22--> 00:18:50

Let me give an example. Remember that we are in a my I think it was probably 97 or something I was in California and San Francisco and there was a these three 3d movies. That was the new technology at that time. So there was a theater opposite the hotel. I went to see his movie it was called sharks or something it was absolutely fantastic experience. You put on those 3d glasses and it looks like as if you are the shark is going to come and eat you do very very real very real.

00:18:51--> 00:18:58

Now remember that we all of us are in a 3d Cinema theater wearing 3d glasses.

00:18:59--> 00:19:04

The umbrella mussalam came to tell people to take up their glasses and look at reality.

00:19:07--> 00:19:18

Because remember that very shortly, we have to leave the theater and we have to go home. No matter how real the film seems to be. It is a film it's not real.

00:19:20--> 00:19:34

The delicious looking food there will not fill your belly. The scenery, the danger, the thrills the luxury. Even though it might be it might be affecting your blood pressure and so on and so forth. It is all virtual reality.

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

It is not real.

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

So don't get fooled by it. We need to return home.

00:19:44--> 00:19:51

We must come we want comfort in our homes. What is the first stage of that home? The cover the grave.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

We want comfort for that. We have to get the furnishings. We have to get the lighting

00:20:01--> 00:20:08

In our own homes, if you want to furnish your home, you go to the store, you spend money, you buy what you need.

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

It won't come on its own.

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

It won't just happen.

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

It needs consistent effort and sweat and tears and smartness.

00:20:19--> 00:20:25

This is the analogy for Jana which is our real and permanent home inshallah.

00:20:27--> 00:20:43

That also needs consistent effort, and sweat and tears and smartness. It needs us to make the right choices based on one criterion alone. What is that? The reader of Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

does it please Allah?

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

No other criteria, very simple, does it please Allah.

00:20:53--> 00:21:02

So the sooner we take off the VR set, the sooner we can prepare for the reality that we will face when the show ends.

00:21:03--> 00:21:09

Unlike in a show, we know when it will end our show. We do not know when it will end.

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

Just think about the people where you are sitting in that module

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

in our budget there think about the people who are with us last year.

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

Where are they today? The young and the old?

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

Where is Wolfie

00:21:29--> 00:21:36

We ask Allah subhanaw taala given Jonathan for those who are a bit without deserve Inshallah, did anyone expect that Zulfi would be gone.

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

And how many people like that?

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

When I go, it will be a surprise for whoever is left.

00:21:46--> 00:21:51

For each one of us. This is the tragedy. The one thing which should never surprise us because we know this

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

is the greatest surprise.

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

Caster Katsina cassava, cassava, cassava, it's just our own veggie Berry.

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

So what is your favorite? Banana Maria Maria Maria.

00:22:08--> 00:22:11

So we have to wake up before we are woken up.

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

What should you do? All good begins with stefarr and Toba with repenting to Allah subhanaw taala and changing ourselves.

00:22:24--> 00:22:34

For Call To start we were up back home. I was running errands to know in order to hold with Elisa Lam said First off era back home so Matobo la

00:22:35--> 00:22:43

repent to Allah. Allah se mafia mango is still far grow sama Domo la Pierre hola guitarra Pardo

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

those have never ever been

00:22:48--> 00:22:52

we can't keep saying sorry and keep doing the same thing again and again that then that sorry is a lie.

00:22:53--> 00:23:02

First of Euro tomato really. If you say sorry, you have to change if you don't change the saris are like you're lying to Allah Samantha.

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

So

00:23:06--> 00:23:14

first off, we were a backhoe. In Hogan or Farah. He is the One Who forgives when ALLAH forgive what will happen.

00:23:15--> 00:23:29

Usually sama la comida rara Allah will send rain. Rain is rain as well as metaphorically it refers to all goodness in life. Whatever good you want in life is in the form of rain.

00:23:31--> 00:23:49

wealth, health, influence, power, authority, children, families, peace, harmony in the home outside of everything. Your silly sama Allah mudra well, you need to come be unwell and Allah will help you with money.

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

That's what we're chasing all that.

00:23:54--> 00:24:01

Allah says Allah will give you money. You need to come be I'm wiling. Well, Bernie and children, again refers to

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

all the popularity that we run behind.

00:24:07--> 00:24:13

Why janela? Come Jana, Allah Kuwahara and Allah will give you gardens and Allah will give you a reverse.

00:24:14--> 00:24:27

Now think about this. Why do we disobey Allah? subhanaw taala Why does anybody any Muslim who believes in La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah who believes that he will die who believes that he will be resurrected on Day of Judgment? Why does he disobey Allah?

00:24:28--> 00:24:47

Why does he borrow money on interest knowing that Allah subhanaw taala declared war on the one who borrows who one who learns the one who writes the deal, right for people that Allah has cursed them. The one who borrows the one who lends the one who witnesses the transaction

00:24:48--> 00:24:51

and the One Who brightens up the workshop.

00:24:52--> 00:24:55

He said, All four are the same. Allah cast all of them.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Muslims are doing it. Muslims are doing it big time.

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

Why

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

Why do we lie? Why do we cheat?

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

Why do we

00:25:08--> 00:25:23

look for popularity among people where we know what kind of people they are why? Because we want the goodness of this world. Right Hamdulillah I think I will make more money if I borrow money on interest and use my business.

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

I think I need to be a member of this club or that club to be popular. Okay, so the

00:25:36--> 00:25:40

the insults like whenever we say, so, you are witness to that.

00:25:42--> 00:25:49

Boy, neighborly. Mineva Balabhadra so the point is, why do we do all that?

00:25:50--> 00:25:58

Because we want these things. Allah subhana wa Rahmatullah saying you will have all of this and more. If you obey me

00:26:01--> 00:26:17

think about this. This beautiful I have to know. First of all, Robert Gumina Organa Rafa, you will see this summer Alec O'Meara cumbia Mwalimu bunny welcome Jana laguan Hara, you're sorry g there is dunya Giga

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

Barresi. Our gentlemen.

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

Where is the red in the Jinja?

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

Where are the children in Jana? Where is the money in Jana?

00:26:31--> 00:27:01

Think about this, this is what the Quran came for it. Allah is not saying muon Islam is not saying make you stefarr to Allah and Toba. And Allah will give you Jana Allah will give you about what he's talking about in this world. Allah will give you money and influence and power and authority and children and families and this and that. All the stuff that you want in this life, for which you are disobeying Allah and you think you will get it that way. Allah is saying you will not get it that way. You will get it if you obey me.

00:27:04--> 00:27:15

So all I'm asking you to do and I'm asking myself do is I'm not saying change your goals? No, please chase money, gesture, just whatever influence and power and popular no problem. Do it in the right way.

00:27:16--> 00:27:28

Do it in the right way, by holding on to Allah subhana wa Jalla Delarue not by disobeying Allah subhanaw taala I'm not I'm not even telling you change those go no, have those goals and hamdulillah

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

have those goals. There's nothing romantic about poverty. You shouldn't be part you should be wealthy, you should be powerful.

00:27:38--> 00:27:42

But you will not be that if you do it the way you're doing it now.

00:27:44--> 00:27:58

I mean, yes, we are. We are we have seen this for the last almost 300 years, how many generations must die? Before the sinks into our mind? That success comes from Allah? Not from disobeying Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Right. The question is,

00:28:04--> 00:28:05

who do we believe?

00:28:06--> 00:28:17

We will have Allah? Or do we believe Shuddha and all the agents of shaytan all your stockbrokers and all your you know bank managers and all the

00:28:18--> 00:28:22

agents who are advising as the opposite which one who do you believe

00:28:25--> 00:28:36

my brother and sisters, seriously, Ramadan, and at the golf game to make us obedient to Allah subhanaw taala in everything in our lives.

00:28:37--> 00:28:41

Now if you find yourself being obedient in some things or not in some other things,

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

then remember, selective obedience is disobedience.

00:28:49--> 00:28:53

I pick something and leave something selective obedience is disobedience

00:28:54--> 00:29:05

and loss around that as a result of Bukhara alpha, alpha two alpha two winner we battle guitare we'll talk Furuno be bad. Allah said do you believe in some things on the book, and you leave others and you deny others?

00:29:08--> 00:29:23

And then Allah said, if you do that, what will happen? Allah said his Yun Phil had it duniya Allah said, I will make the life of this world for you very, very difficult. I will make it tough for you. kissoon Phil had to dunya

00:29:24--> 00:29:27

the life of this world will be constructed for you.

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

Is it? Is it is it? Is it not happening to us today? And hamdulillah Allah has kept us safe. But he's not happening to happening to the Muslims.

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

All over the world. Is life good or is it hard?

00:29:40--> 00:29:42

And what does the future look like?

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

Does it look worse or better?

00:29:46--> 00:29:48

We have we know the answers.

00:29:49--> 00:29:55

But knowing the answer if I have a pair in my head, reading a prescription won't take it away.

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

Holding that that you know whatever I will

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

will tell you know Allah whatnot in my hand will not take it away. I have to eat the medicine.

00:30:07--> 00:30:10

Allah subhanaw taala is telling us this. So selective obedience

00:30:12--> 00:30:18

is disobedience. Ask yourself this question. Why is the masjid full in Dharavi but not for solid

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

even longer than

00:30:23--> 00:30:28

the reward for for the number that is what 70 times the reward 74

00:30:29--> 00:30:34

And that form is being bred in the masjid in JAMA that is another 27 times when I do all the numbers

00:30:36--> 00:30:46

that we handle a very good we should pay but at the end of the day it isn't enough it's it's not. So which the reward for which is more further or several examples

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

are solid.

00:30:49--> 00:30:53

The reward is more for what further further or further away

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

we have to stop doing this because for us

00:31:03--> 00:31:06

even our obedience to Allah subhanaw taala is as per our will

00:31:08--> 00:31:10

we do what we would like to do anyway.

00:31:11--> 00:31:16

And we say oh I'm being obedient on US law, you're being even there you're being obedient to Your Own knifes

00:31:18--> 00:31:24

because the one who is obedient is obedient is everything. He's not obedient in some things. This is what must change.

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

Right? We go to the masjid, but we will also not leave the clubs.

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

Oh shara, bah bah me Who should I head as he raised a yard we

00:31:37--> 00:31:40

run with run with the hair hunt with Downs. It won't work.

00:31:42--> 00:31:59

It will not work. Allah subhanaw taala demands that we choose that we make a clear choice. Shaitan is our enemy Allah does it in a shaytan I don't want Fatah who are the one share that is your enemy. Treat him like an enemy.

00:32:01--> 00:32:25

And about himself. Allah said what Allah Who will you will live in our armor? No, you couldn't you one minute Zulu ma DE LA Noire. Allah is the Wali Allah is the Protector. Allah is the is the is the I don't use the word friend because Allah is not anybody's friend. Allah Subhana Allah is Allah Muhammad was buffalo but wali is the is Willa it's somebody who is close confidant protector, supporter, maintainer.

00:32:26--> 00:32:30

Allah when Allah Himself said I am the only of the believers.

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

But the believers want chata to be there very

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

well as in a golfo.

00:32:37--> 00:32:40

Allah subhanaw taala said the people who reject

00:32:41--> 00:33:08

Allah will live up to Minnesota Martina Nora Valentina Cafaro Alia who thought you couldn't do no Mina, Nutella Zuma will I guess I will not even fear Caledon. Allah says Allah is the word of the believers and meaning if you stick to Allah subhanaw taala if you hang on to Allah subhanaw taala Allah will take you out from darkness into light, from his guidance into guidance from difficulty into ease, from from threat into safety.

00:33:09--> 00:33:19

What is it like for only the ones who rely there earlier? Are there false things which they have created in their minds?

00:33:20--> 00:33:24

False things not only idol worship, is all kinds of things.

00:33:26--> 00:33:43

Those we believe our friends, those we believe are our people we need in this life, they are the and what what will they do? Allah said they will take them from nor into Sabbath, they will take them from light into darkness, they will take them from guidance into misguidance. They will take them from a good state into a bad state.

00:33:44--> 00:33:50

question to ask I was and Allah said these other people the fire, we ask Allah to save us from this.

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

Let's ask. Let's ask ourselves this question. We want to borrow and lend money on interest. And then we wonder why our door is not accepted?

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

If Allah is my enemy, who will accept my door?

00:34:05--> 00:34:18

Ask yourself this question. If Allah is my enemy, and how would I allow my name because I signed my name in the list of those who accepted war from Allah? What do you what do you call someone who you are at war with enemy or red?

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

How much do we want to fool ourselves?

00:34:23--> 00:34:44

So if Allah is our enemy, who will accept although we donate to we donate money to the masjid so we have the Haram income. Then we give big donations much to the massage our mothers our or your team kind of orphanage or something, but nothing changes. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala only accepts what is pure.

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

You can throw money at Allah and make difficulties go away.

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

Allah subhanaw taala told us that difficulties come because of what we do our actions. Our Amel not mal XRL pasado filbur Reverberi be

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

Monica Sabbath ad nurse Lucy calm by the Lezzy Abdullah, Allah we are doing Allah said does facade the difficulties, trials, tribulations diseases COVID, Cora Cora. Everything is the result of the actions that come from your hands.

00:35:18--> 00:35:28

And Allah allows it to happen Allah allows you to suffer so that you get a taste of the final punishment and you turn towards Allah subhanaw taala and save yourself from the final punishment.

00:35:32--> 00:35:33

It is our deeds.

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

If we don't want to change our deeds, that nothing will happen. Throwing money won't happen. Try it and see you want to lose weight, donate money to a gym.

00:35:46--> 00:35:51

Seriously, I want to lose weight. So I'm saying no, I'm giving Volcarona one lakh rupees a month.

00:35:53--> 00:35:54

Don't it

00:35:57--> 00:35:59

until you go in your cover you won't lose one grand

00:36:01--> 00:36:13

tell somebody Josh please make dua for me I was lose weight. Your share can stand on its head and make dwells on I think wherever you want to lose weight. You have to stop eating carbs. You have to stop eating sugars.

00:36:15--> 00:36:17

You want to lose weight you have do something.

00:36:18--> 00:36:29

Do I will not work. donating money will not work. How will it work for Jana? I want to do the AMA of the people of the fire and I want to go into Jana by throwing money at Allah knows Willa.

00:36:32--> 00:36:39

Please, you can donate any amount of money. It is the people taking the donation must tell you that they don't tell you that because they want your money.

00:36:42--> 00:36:44

But doesn't matter they will take your money they will enjoy your money.

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

But you will still answer dollars.

00:36:50--> 00:36:59

Man, Amal brought our Hallett our deeds brought our conditions and only deeds can take them away.

00:37:01--> 00:37:05

Joe Hala Amazigh wahala bass and Edith

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

wahala alcohol I'm gonna add to our camera.

00:37:11--> 00:37:16

There is no shortcut to that. Just like you can't lose weight by donating money

00:37:17--> 00:37:45

and still having the same eating habits and the same sedentary habits. Similarly, we cannot get Janna by doing the Amal of Jahannam and throwing money to expect that somehow Jana will come it will not do. So therefore, what must we do? Ask this question, what do I need to stop doing right now? What do I need to start doing right now?

00:37:47--> 00:37:49

Make notes and do it.

00:37:51--> 00:37:57

My brother sisters, charity from haram wealth does not put out the fire or the anger of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:37:58--> 00:38:00

We have been trying it for decades.

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

Has anything changed? Except for the worst?

00:38:04--> 00:38:07

So what are we waiting for? Total disaster.

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

Believe me it doesn't take long if Allah decides.

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

So let's stop doing gives.

00:38:15--> 00:38:19

Ask yourself a very simple question. Do you seriously think

00:38:20--> 00:38:23

the Surah Surah Salam said a man came in with a Salah?

00:38:24--> 00:38:30

And he said yes what Allah. I want to please make dua for me. I want to be your companion in Jannah

00:38:32--> 00:38:34

Surah Surah Salam said, What have you done?

00:38:35--> 00:38:50

What deeds have you done for that? That's just a hobby. So he's not we're not talking about anything haram, he would have done 1000 times more than what we do. But their humility is such he said yes to Allah I have done nothing. But I love Allah and Allah. Allah Allah

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

Surah Surah salaam said, you will be with those who love

00:38:56--> 00:39:01

come in Malaga. velana said that was the happiest day of our lives because we know we love Mohamed salah.

00:39:02--> 00:39:12

And as we Malika said, on the basis of this I hope I will be with Ross was a Salah man with and with Abu Bakr and our other lanova even though my deeds are not equal to this.

00:39:14--> 00:39:16

Now ask yourself this question. Ask yourself this question.

00:39:18--> 00:39:19

Do you seriously think

00:39:20--> 00:39:33

Do you seriously think that I will Bakr and Umar and Uthman and Ali and Fatima and Hadiya and Hassan and Jose and sad Benoit and wide bingeable Are the Allahu Anhu as my aim

00:39:35--> 00:39:43

and Mohammad Rasool Allah He SallAllahu Sallam will be in the same place as your stewards for bioliquid Racecourse.

00:39:44--> 00:39:49

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

Whoever is offended, let them be offended. That's not your problem. You are going alone into your cover.

00:41:18--> 00:41:30

You will stand alone before Allah subhanaw taala I want you to remember me. I want you to make dua for me when I'm dead. But I don't want to drown I don't want you to remember me on the day of judgment era our I born in Santa Sudan.

00:41:31--> 00:41:45

I wish I had her I wish I had listened to him. Allah subhanaw taala describe this scene not with my name or your name, but describe the scene of what will happen to those who see the reality of the Day of Judgment so I prefer calm Yeah, hello.

00:41:47--> 00:41:58

They will what will they say? Ya leave Danny LaMotta his Fulani and kalila they will say oh I wish I did not take that person as my friend.

00:41:59--> 00:42:08

Gosh chemerinsky. Those two names they are compact and Allah said they will bite their hand like this that's what they said they will bite the run down to the elbow

00:42:11--> 00:42:17

this this the the symbol of regret not to get hurt. It kills me you're gonna cover up Kouta

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

nodded my bald

00:42:24--> 00:42:25

guy

00:42:31--> 00:42:33

Gabon, Iraq, Syria Civil War

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

what I'm saying here is not the Joker. This is what Allah described.

00:42:41--> 00:42:45

This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala describes Surah can get put together all

00:42:48--> 00:42:50

the time to save ourselves is now

00:42:51--> 00:43:01

not then I wish I had not taken so and so as a friend I wish I had not been a steward in my life but I wish I had not been a member of this club and that club I wish I had no no no, no, no, no.

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

Now, do it now.

00:43:07--> 00:43:23

Ask yourself, whoever is going to be offended by an action leading towards Allah is not somebody whose opinion is worth thinking about. Because that person is aligned which has done let them you find it very good. Alhamdulillah please be offended.

00:43:25--> 00:43:29

The people who are aligned with Allah subhanaw taala they will be very happy with you.

00:43:30--> 00:43:38

At the end, none of that matters. Neither the offending nor the happiness what matters is is Allah happy with you or not?

00:43:39--> 00:43:44

And Allah will not be happy with you and me. If we are following the agent's agenda.

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

Please.

00:43:47--> 00:43:49

Unfortunately we are

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

upside down.

00:43:52--> 00:44:31

In this upside down world of ours. We are upside down. I want to end with a beautiful healthy service Asana relating to company we keep Asana Asana sallam said in the Hadees the meaning of it is he said if you sit in the shop of the utter of the perfumer somebody selling and making perfumes. He said he will simply sit in the shop then you will smell the beautiful perfumes. And when you leave the shop even your body will smell all the above because you're sitting in the same shop some of that will rub off on you. So you will smell good when you leave the shop and when you are in the shop you have a beautiful experience. Here on the other hand if you sit in the black in a blacksmith

00:44:31--> 00:44:49

sweaty where his father is there and coal and the fire and burning, he said you will cells will smell smoke and sweat and you know bad stuff. And when you leave there your body and your clothes will also spin on that and maybe some sparks will fall on your clothes maybe the slides will also get bundled.

00:44:51--> 00:45:00

So what is he saying here? He is saying if you are in the company are good people, you will be good. And you will come out from there good. If you are in the gap

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

When you have people who are evil, that that evil will also rub off on you.

00:45:05--> 00:45:14

And Allah subhanaw taala has also said this already in our Guru Masada clean. Allah said all your beliefs stay with the people who are truthful.

00:45:17--> 00:45:19

So I remind myself, I knew my brothers and sisters,

00:45:20--> 00:45:21

that 100 law

00:45:23--> 00:46:03

does not allow Karen for inviting me to speak to you. And by now, you must have discovered that you made a bad decision. So but too late. And Inshallah, the point here is that that does not have this only as a social gathering. I love all of you very much you are my dearest friends and humbled I asked you for the love for me. But let it not simply be meaningless, you know, just a friendship and socializing and we sat and talked something good, have deliberate action at the end of it zero that shouldn't have that shouldn't happen. Let this be a life changing moment for you and me.

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

As I said, Write down specifically, what must I change and change that before the other than for Salat al Fajr?

00:46:15--> 00:46:50

Then we ask Allah subhanho della della did Allah to forgive us. We ask Allah to shower us with His mercy and His forgiveness and His grace, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us from sources we cannot imagine. We ask Allah subhanaw taala Jenna did Allah Who to remove all our difficulties? We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from all evil that which we know and we don't know. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to cure all those who are sick, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to to forgive all those who have passed away we ask Allah to forgive to fill their core with nor we ask Allah subhanaw taala to it to give power to their families. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that when it is time for us

00:46:50--> 00:47:07

to meet him, that that time becomes the most beautiful time of our entire lives. When we meet our geladeira law and we ask Him for His mercy and His grace was Allah Allah Allah Allah will carry virally. He was a weird name, but I will try we will have to learn robola Levine was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
