AI: Summary © The importance of Islam's deception is highlighted, as it is a way to live by what one has in their life and that they will be questioned about their means and behavior. The speakers emphasize the importance of not being the one who wants to be the "what to be" and how they can use the "what to be" to avoid confusion and distraction. The process of opening a warehouse door and giving customers the opportunity to see their faces and eyes is also emphasized, along with the importance of belief in Islam and rebuilding. The speakers stress the need for individuals to practice belief in Islam and express their desire to be recognized as Muslims.

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Ashrafi Lambie will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam just even because here in Casita,

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

this is the second

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

in the series on fundamentals, focus on the fundamentals, we ask Allah subhanaw taala, to help us to understand our deen correctly and to live by it so that we are successful in this world and the next.

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

It is one of the articles of our faith, to believe in divine destiny, color of Allah and to be pleased with it.

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

Rather, Bill Kedah is proof of our iman and a sign of taco.

00:00:52--> 00:01:21

Islamic understanding of our destiny is that we have been given limited choice in our lives. Some things have been written for us and cannot be changed. In others, we have the freedom to choose what we want for ourselves. For example, we are free to choose to eat whatever we want. But what the food will do to us physically and spiritually is not in our control.

00:01:25--> 00:01:28

The best way to understand what we

00:01:31--> 00:01:54

have a choice and what we don't is to look at the questions that we will be asked in the Accra, we will be questioned only in matters where we have the freedom to choose, that is justice. And Allah subhanaw taala is added. The just those are the matters that we must be concerned about exclusively.

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

And what he did with what he knew, which is knowledge five things. Now, we understand from this that the quantum quantity the amount of what we can get in this life is fixed, but we have the choice of how to get it

00:03:27--> 00:04:02

the means and that is what we will be questioned about the means and not the quantum but also as SLM explained this in the following Hadith. And Abdullah even the above some of the Allahu anima call, want to confer Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yeoman for Karla hula in the wildly Mooka Kelly Murthy father Allah, your father. If Allah Allah did who to Jack, either for us Allah Allah

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

roof here at a club with Jeff Foote, a sort of

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

on the authority of Abdullah buzzworthy, Allah anima

00:04:43--> 00:04:52

who said one day, I was behind Rasul Allah, he's on my salaam Sallam riding on the same mound.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

And he said, Oh, young man, I will teach you some words of advice.

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

So I'm gonna see her. And then he said, be mindful of Allah. Remember Allah, Allah will protect you.

00:05:09--> 00:05:51

Be mindful of Allah and you will find him in front of you. If you ask, ask Allah alone, if you need help, seek help from Allah alone. And know that if the nations were to gather to benefit you with anything, they will not benefit you, except with what Allah has already prescribed for you, Allah has already written for you. And if they were to gather to harm you with anything, they will not be able to harm you, except with what Allah subhanaw taala already prescribed or wrote against you, the pens have been lifted, and the pages have dried. And this is interfering with

00:05:52--> 00:06:01

the deception or shaitan is that he convinces us to worry about what is not in our control, and already written,

00:06:02--> 00:06:12

and about which we will not be questioned. That is the amount of wealth, material power, knowledge, influence and all such things.

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

And he convinces us

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


00:06:19--> 00:06:46

worry about and he convinces us not to worry about, he tells us to worry about the things that we have been that they're already married, and not to worry about the things that we will be questioned about, which is how we acquired all these things. We will not be question about the amount of wealth but we will do question about where we got it from how and where we spent it and so on.

00:06:47--> 00:06:58

The antidote to this deception is to understand and leave the what to Allah, and focus on the how,

00:06:59--> 00:07:28

if we do the how right, Allah subhanaw taala will put baraka and blessing in all that he gave us and fill our lives with the sweetness and light of His mercy and pleasure. If instead of this, the use of Ron means to get our material wants in life, it will attract the punishment and anger of Allah. But the amount of what we will get will not change.

00:07:30--> 00:07:41

The amount of what we get by these wrong means will not change. We will still get only what Allah subhanaw taala wrote for us in the first place.

00:07:43--> 00:07:59

Tell me Does it make sense to spoil our eternal situation to get something which we would have got anyway. And which if we use the right means will also get us genuine, doesn't make sense.

00:08:01--> 00:08:05

Imagine this, you're standing in front of a huge warehouse

00:08:06--> 00:08:28

with a glass front and you can look inside it and you can see everything in it. This warehouse contains all that Allah subhanaw taala has written for you everything physical material, mental all knowledge, your family, your friends, your wealth, your influence, you imagine every single thing

00:08:29--> 00:08:33

is inside this warehouse. And you can see

00:08:34--> 00:08:44

all of it is yours. It belongs to you and you alone. Everything in the warehouse is yours. And all you need to do is to go in and take it.

00:08:46--> 00:09:04

It is as simple as that go in and take it nobody else can take it away. And nobody can prevent you from taking what is in that warehouse. Also, nobody can give you anything other than what is in the warehouse.

00:09:05--> 00:09:23

Now, this warehouse has two doors on either one is marked halal. And the other one is marked haraam. Both the doors have cameras with retina recognition face recognition and will open for you as soon as you stand in front of them.

00:09:25--> 00:09:41

Right. So as soon as you stand in front of the door, the camera takes a picture of your face and Regina your eyes and the door opens for you. Now imagine that you are standing in front of the door marked Hara and the road is open because that's where you stand the door opens.

00:09:42--> 00:09:47

You are about to enter when I see you there and I call out you and I say stop.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

Don't enter through that door. Come around, enter through this door which is marked halal. You will still get everything in the warehouse. It is all you

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

worse, and nobody can take it away from you.

00:10:06--> 00:10:16

Right? So I'm calling Wednesday, come through this way, instead of from this door come from this door. And same warehouse, same thing. Now make sense, you have to turn around.

00:10:18--> 00:10:33

What do you think happens? What is the first thing that happens as soon as you turn around, the door will close, because the camera can no longer see your face. As long as the camera sees your face, the door will remain open, as soon as the gap you turn around the door closes. Now what do you do? You panic,

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

you panic.

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

You turn around, and the door opens again.

00:10:41--> 00:11:06

Now I call out when I say, leave that the other door will also open for you in the same way. Just come around us that door and you will get the same things, same warehouse, nothing has changed, you will get the same thing with it but with the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala with baraka and with the rid of Allah subhanaw taala. So you will get all the stuff and you will also get Jana come this way.

00:11:08--> 00:11:21

But if you go through this door, which is open now, you will still get the same things, nothing will change. But with them, you will get punishment in this life and the occur to come this way.

00:11:22--> 00:11:27

But now you tell me, No, hold on. You open that door for me and I will come

00:11:29--> 00:11:52

otherwise, this one is open and ongoing. Now, think about this. Can I open that door for you? Because that camera is programmed to open when it sees your face and your eyes. That door will not open for anybody on the face of the earth. It won't open for your own children and one for your for your for your parents in wardrobe anyway, it's for you.

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

But you sell around you open the door and show me then I will come.

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

This is the leap of faith.

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

This is happening in our lives every single day.

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

Every single day. This is the leap of faith.

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

And that leap of faith is called our call that leap of faith is called human belief.

00:12:18--> 00:12:25

We take the leap of faith because we believe Allah we take the leap of faith because they believe the hadith of Rasul Allah says

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

there are many ads.

00:12:33--> 00:12:36

I mean I can I am restricted by time otherwise I would have

00:12:38--> 00:12:43

shown you all of that. But look in the Quran all the ads related to risk. What is the last

00:12:46--> 00:12:49

call in rugby? Yeah, Basotho risk, Ali Mejia Shah.

00:12:50--> 00:12:55

Wala Kim axonopathy, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah said Say to them Yamaha muscles,

00:12:56--> 00:13:02

it is my Rabbu expands your provision or restricted, but most people don't understand.

00:13:04--> 00:13:12

We have control over the means, not over the amount. This is the choice that we must make.

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

We must choose the means only must choose the right means only

00:13:19--> 00:13:42

the quantity is already decided. We have no choice in that if we choose the right door, you will get everything in the warehouse of our risk with blessing with herrenberg If not, you will still get the same things but with the anger of Allah. Does that make sense? Ask yourself rather than sisters and decide once and for all.

00:13:44--> 00:13:51

Finally, one of the most important a hadith about halal and haram and Normann been Bashir

00:13:52--> 00:14:08

and all the Allahu kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam al halide Obion well haram obey, obey now Houma. Masha Behat en la ya la Maha cathedral Mina NAS, famine.

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

Taka al Masha Bahati

00:14:13--> 00:14:21

is Sabra Lydian he was in the he woman what? Fish or Bertie

00:14:23--> 00:14:36

Cara in Yarra how lil Hamer. You see qu au RP or who Allah we're in the fully Moluccan Hema

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

Allah in HEMA Allah He fee out of the he Maha Remo Allah Wa in fill just as the mandala is a sangha Salahaddin Jessa do Kulu what either first or that first hurdle Jessa do Kulu IRA, we're here I'll call

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

decision. So you had this and say Buhari

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

and Norman immuno Bashir or the Alana reported. The rustlers and salam said the lawful is clear the halal is clear and the unlawful The Haram is clear, and between the two of them are

00:15:17--> 00:16:04

doubtful matters about which many people do not know. Thus he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself regarding his religion and his honor, and he will fall into doubtful matters will fall into the Haram will fall into the unlawful as the shepherd who pastures near a sanctuary all but grazing dairy that is going is taking a sheep all the way to the boundary. Virtually every king has a Sanctum a sacred place, and the sanctum of Allah is his prohibitions. very lean the body is a piece of flesh which if sound, the entire body is sound, and if corrupt, the entire body is corrupt and truly it is the heart. And this is this area these both of our era agreed upon and Bukhari and

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


00:16:06--> 00:16:31

Finally, the beautiful Hadith in theory, the Tala hasn't even really are the Allahu Anhu autonoma call also relies on Allah Hi Leo Selam da Ma, Uri book Isla ma Allah Yadi book for in see the CA to mA ni Anna to we're in NL katiba rebuttal.

00:16:34--> 00:17:17

Has an ally of the Alana reported the grandson of resources that Rasul Allah is seldom said, leave that which makes you doubt for what does not make you doubt. Verily, Truth brings peace of mind and falsehood, SOS doubt. And this is in theory, there in lives, the safety for the believer, to leave the doubtful, for the certain. Sometimes we believe that we Muslims are held back from progress, because we are not allowed to take interest based loans. Let me try to address this in the only way that matters. And that is the context of the matter.

00:17:18--> 00:17:23

The first thing to get clear in our minds, is the meaning of progress and success.

00:17:24--> 00:17:35

And last round data set, he gave us the metric, he gave us the way to measure that. He said coldness in the equitable mode, we're in to a phone that will do rock home yoga,

00:17:37--> 00:17:53

from zero and in theory, we're all the killers janitor photographers, normal hair to dunya Illa Mata overall, and so to Lebanon, unless you are interested, every soul shall taste death. If you are born, you will die.

00:17:55--> 00:18:19

Every soul shall taste death, and you will only receive your full reward on the Day of Judgment. Whoever is spared from the fire and is admitted into Jannah will indeed triumph. That person is the only person who's successful. Whereas in the life of this whereas the life of this world is no more than the delusion of enjoyment.

00:18:21--> 00:19:10

Live of the ilimitado is nothing more than the delusion of enjoyment. My brothers and sisters, Islam is a belief system. You enter Islam by believing and declaring that belief is equally simple to leave Islam. That is why it is essential to ensure that we never see or do anything that contradicts or denies our belief. That is why knowledge is important. And it begins with fundamentals. To illustrate with a simple example salah is a fundamental principle and one of the five pillars of Islam. If someone doesn't pray, he or she is committing a major sin for which they must seek forgiveness. But if a person prays, but says that the prayer is prayer, the Salah is not fun, but

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

optional, and you can pray or not pray depending on your wish.

00:19:16--> 00:19:26

If a person is saying that that person has left Islam, even though he or she may pray regularly, so this person is praying again anybody said you know it's up to you. You want to pray pray.

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

You have left Islam.

00:19:29--> 00:19:41

If a person same thing applies to everything else which Allah subhanaw taala has made for or privated if somebody says it's okay to drink, it doesn't matter. Once in a while. It's okay to fornicate. It's okay to do this do that.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

You have left Islam.

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

It's as it is as simple and as serious as that.

00:19:49--> 00:19:55

If a Muslim believes and speaks contrary to that, which Allah subhanaw taala Ribet are

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

made for has commanded

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

then that person is in danger of leaving the fold of Islam. It's not just a matter of opinion. If the opinion of a Muslim contradicts or denies what Allah ordered, or his messengers, Allah Salam taught, it takes the person out of Islam. He will then have to repent and seek ALLAH subhanho Tell us forgiveness and reenter Islam. If not, he, if he doesn't do that and he dies, then he would have died without Islam.

00:20:30--> 00:20:45

Even if he had been doing other prescribed things, Allah subhanaw taala made this rule of complete obedience very clear. In Islam, selective obedience is disobedience, and may result in our Islam being rejected by Allah subhanaw taala.

00:20:47--> 00:20:49

Let me give you two examples.

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

Allah subhanaw taala said, Yeah, you are Lavina

00:20:55--> 00:21:48

Hello facil me forgotten. Well, I thought of you for two or three straight on in the whole lagoon model one movie, and I said, Oh believers, oh, you will believe enter Islam completely, and do not follow in the footsteps of shaitan. Surely He is your sworn enemy. The AI is addressed to the believers who already believe showing that merely saying that we believe is not enough. belief must be demonstrated in all aspects of life. Not it's not a matter of personal choice. The word Muslim is a verb. It describes someone who is doing something, someone who has submitted to Allah subhanaw taala. Not someone who knows about Islam, no matter how much but does not practice Islam. A Haji is

00:21:48--> 00:22:04

someone who has done hutch, not the worst driver for the whole judge Issa him is the one who fasts not someone who knows about fasting. A Musa Lee is the one who's praying, not someone who knows how to pray, but doesn't pray himself.

00:22:05--> 00:22:54

So a Muslim is one who practices Islam. Not somebody who knows about Islam, about selective obedience, Allah subhanaw taala declared very clearly, to me, I'm gonna be bad al Kitab you attack Faloona divide Fatah Jessa, who my EFI Luiza Lika Minh come in case you can fill it in dunya. While you're at MIT, you cannot do not ILA Asha the lava from Allah, Who will I fill in? I'm Dharma Lu? And let's say Do you believe in some part of the Scripture who reject the text? Is there any reward for those who do so among you, other than disgrace in this worldly life and being subjected to the harshest punishment on the Day of Judgment?

00:22:55--> 00:23:18

For Allah subhanaw taala is not unaware of what you do. This is our biggest problem today. May Allah forgive us. Muslims want Islam in their choice of flavor. But Islam didn't come in different flavors. The beauty of Islam is that it is universal. And the same for all people everywhere in every year.

00:23:20--> 00:23:45

There is no Arab Islam and American Islam and this is or Chinese Islam or whatever. There is one Islam and all those who practice it are Muslims. Equal before Allah subhanho wa Taala distinguished only by the extent to which they are concerned about pleasing Allah subhanaw taala that is distinguished and differentiated only by the taqwa

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

as the laws around intelligence

00:23:48--> 00:24:10

in our Kurama Komenda lie at Koco in Allah Ali Mahaveer surely, Allah subhanho wa Taala surely the most noble of you, in the sight of Allah is the most righteous among you are the king or the queen or the person with money not the person with partner, the one who is the most righteous the man who was most Taqwa

00:24:12--> 00:24:23

at Falco has the most surely the most noble of you, in the sight of Allah is the most righteous among you, Allah is truly all knowing all the way in Allah. I Lehman

00:24:25--> 00:24:49

Brothers Sisters, I remind myself and me that we Muslims are people of action, we are distinguished by what we do that is focused on that what we choose to do or not to do defines brand value and character, inshallah most more next Friday, but let us reflect on what I have said and ask ourselves where we stand today. A day will come when

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

that will be the difference between Jana and the other place. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us Jana and we pleased with

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

us and to save us from His anger and from his punishment was Allah Allah Allah Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was named and I put together my life
