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

Alhamdulillah

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

Allah Allah, Allah, Allah,

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

Allah,

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

Allah,

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

Allah, Allah, Allah,

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

Allah,

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

Allah,

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

Allah,

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

my dear brothers and sisters and elders and children.

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

It's the great mercy and blessings of Allah subhanaw taala, that he gathers us on this Friday in his house, that we may glorify Him, and that we that we may worship Him.

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

And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this worship, such that he is pleased with it,

00:00:46--> 00:00:57

and to give us unto the waters for this, in keeping with his majesty and grace, I thought today that it is a good idea for us to look at the issue

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

of the

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

love of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:01:06--> 00:01:14

And this is important, because the love of Allah subhanaw taala is the root of all goodness.

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

It is to inculcate

00:01:21--> 00:01:31

and to create a love for Allah subhanho wa Taala in opposition and against the love of everything else, that the MBR mo Salama says

00:01:32--> 00:01:45

Yama did not come to teach anything other than this. They came to teach people to love Allah. And what is the sign of the love of Allah to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without any ship.

00:01:48--> 00:01:52

Now Allah subhanaw taala himself mentioned

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

love for him

00:01:56--> 00:02:06

and how much love for him to the highest possible extent, superlative terms in the Quran, as a sign of the believers.

00:02:07--> 00:02:12

Allah Allah said, One la de la mano a Chateau de la.

00:02:13--> 00:02:20

Allah says the people who believe the believers are the people who who love Allah, how much Asha

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

Asha is a superlative form of Shadi.

00:02:26--> 00:02:31

I said is, for example, if somebody is angry with you say if he's very,

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

extremely angry, nothing beyond that.

00:02:39--> 00:02:48

So similarly, I said, how much Allah extremely powerful love for Allah more than anything else in the world.

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

And Allah

00:02:53--> 00:03:06

explained this in even more detail in another hour, where Allah subhanaw taala mentioned how much love somebody should have for Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala actually put the criteria in the measurement of the condition

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

and Allah subhanaw taala said

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

he said say to them,

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

call in can

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

call in Ghana Abba.

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

What is up Sona casada amasa

00:03:35--> 00:03:38

Allah D word yadin visa v Amelie

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

Fatah

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

wa hola Yeah, hello Solomon fast.

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

Which means Allah said say to them, that if they love

00:03:52--> 00:04:02

their parents, their children, the brothers and sisters, their wives, and husbands, their families.

00:04:06--> 00:04:21

The wealth that they like to accumulate the trade that they fear a loss in, or the houses that they like to build and they delight in these homes and houses. If they love any of these things, more than they love Allah.

00:04:23--> 00:04:31

More than they love Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and more than they love Jackie Sevilla more than struggling.

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

Then what happens? Allah

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

Allah

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

Allah said, tell them to go and wait.

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

Tell them you don't need them. Tell them get out. Go and wait for what?

00:04:49--> 00:04:58

A lot of me wait for the form of Allah. Wait for the armor of Allah wait for the punishment and Allah Allah

00:05:02--> 00:05:08

Are we talking about people committing sins? In a way? Yes but in this ayah is the word sin mentioned? No.

00:05:10--> 00:05:18

No. Is it haram to love your wife and children? Is it haram to love your parents? Is it is haram to love your family?

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

No,

00:05:21--> 00:05:30

the issue is not that it is an issue is an issue of comparative which do you love more? It is

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

recommended very good to love your families

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

to love your parents love your children

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

to be interested in doing business in a halal manner

00:05:42--> 00:05:52

to build a house with income and feel happy and say Alhamdulillah when you look at the house nothing wrong with that. The issue is which do you love more?

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

You love all this work

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

Are you loving

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

and not just leave it there for us to say no no, no, no, no I don't have all this I love Allah more. My word for it.

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

Unless you had in peace, Emily

00:06:12--> 00:06:16

he said you love a lot more than show it you love

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

them show it

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

show it by struggling in the

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

show it by breaking the deal and everything else.

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

So how do we love Allah

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

there are three

00:06:35--> 00:06:55

things which must happen for us to develop the love of Allah subhanaw taala inshallah we'll talk about that today. Forgive me if I exceed the time a little bit, I normally never exceed the time. And today also I will try not to exceed the time. And if I if the diamond is banned, and I was inside only one if each in the thalassa will shorten the Salah, but we will.

00:06:56--> 00:07:06

I want to finish this today and I believe today is a holiday for all of you. So what I'm going to spend a little bit of time in the house although there are three things that are important.

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

If you want to know what are the three things number one

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

is to count the blessings of Allah.

00:07:17--> 00:07:25

Count the blessings of Allah. Number two is to consciously make sugar for those blessings conscious

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

specifically each and everything.

00:07:33--> 00:07:42

Consciously make sugar for them. And the last one is to ensure that you will never use any of those blessings against Allah.

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

Three things what are the three things number one, count the blessings? Number two, make sure number three, never use it against Allah

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

and we look at each of you inshallah.

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

So what are the blessings of Allah?

00:07:58--> 00:08:01

Allah subhanaw taala described his blessings. Allah said

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

Bismillah

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

R Rahman.

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

Some farmer obey hose.

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

One GMO was

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

was

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

Allah de boville me

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

la,

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

la la la,

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

la la la la la la la la.

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

De

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

Rosa.

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

He began the full hour with the majesty and glory of his name.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

The personal name of allah Subhana.

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

Allah began with the glory of Allah.

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

Allah Allah for

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

any linked his name, who is color

00:09:40--> 00:09:44

Who is the one who gave you that? The one who sent the color.

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

Why? Because that is the number one blessing.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

The number one, the number one blessing is not well, it is not health. It is not beauty. It is not strength. It is not apple. It is not it is nothing because it

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

We are all in the world. And we have plenty of examples of this. If we are the most intelligent human being in the world in the world, if you are the most beautiful human being in the world, if you are the strongest human being in the world, if you are the most glorious and majestic and wealthiest and powerful human being in the world, and you do not have a diet

00:10:21--> 00:10:26

and if you die without a snap, then you go into the Hellfire forever. And

00:10:29--> 00:10:35

so what is the use of all that wealth and money and beauty and strength 11 00

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

number one blessing of allies

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

and what is the book of radical

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

alpha urashima

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

the glory and majesty of our

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

link directly with the number one blessing that he has sent us and that is, the Book of Allah

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

Subhana Allah

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

that is why it is important to sit and study this book of Allah.

00:11:17--> 00:11:38

It is important to spend some time to do that. Not simply recite the Quran because the tune sounds nice, not just recite the Quran because we have nothing better to do not recite the Quran for Allah Subhana Allah studied forum this brand did not come to him you saw the brand gives up anyway. The Quran came for us to live by the message.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

And Allah,

00:11:44--> 00:11:55

Allah Collins, and he created human being and he gave eloquent speech, the sun and the moon run in fixed orbits, there is no time to go into each of these if required explanation.

00:11:57--> 00:12:03

Each of these I can explain to you in detail, there's no time for this into mine shall as and when time permits.

00:12:04--> 00:12:14

What I'm doing a talk on the either the sixth or the seventh of February, in the international conference, on the cosmology in the Quran, come and visit.

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

Allah Allah said, sun and the moon in fixed orbits,

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

the stars and the trees, the name pseudoscalar. And I have an email guy

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

and set up the balance

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

What is the meaning of balance? And what is

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

one meaning Amazon is Amazon.

00:12:37--> 00:12:42

But another meaning of Visa or MasterCard? Is the system an order?

00:12:47--> 00:12:50

what is right and what is wrong? How do you know?

00:12:51--> 00:12:57

what is good and what is evil? How do you know? It is the Sharia law. This is the greatest blessing from Allah.

00:12:59--> 00:13:06

Today, unfortunately, because our upbringing is in the, in the ways of the kafar we see the Sharia as best as a word in our head.

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

You know,

00:13:11--> 00:13:26

big rock I have to carry on my head. So I cannot look at this and I cannot look at that and I can't eat this and I can't eat that and I can't listen to this and I can't listen to that. Even the one who's following it. Things as a burden is sacrificing for the sake of Allah.

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

sugar.

00:13:35--> 00:13:42

Sugar blue taught us what is right and what is wrong, sugar blue that you start as what is

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

and what is.

00:13:48--> 00:13:59

Otherwise you also would have been worshipping dogs. Because that is what our friends are doing today. They believe the dog will bring prosperity so they're getting street dogs and they're worshipping the dog, you would have been making Sudoku.

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

He's not something to be grateful for. That this head Alhamdulillah does not go down before anyone other than me.

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

This is the head. This is

00:14:17--> 00:14:23

the man and the woman that his face and his head will not go down before anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:24--> 00:14:30

This is not something for thank Allah and the one who refuses you who refuses that honor. The

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

next image, even to the top

00:14:35--> 00:14:35

in

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

the visa is the is the the Sharia Islam, the media is also the balance in which our deeds will be will be measured. And we asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us genda without even without even measuring the radio silence

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

Because if

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

that actually puts our kids in the middle, we are in trouble.

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

We are in trouble.

00:15:10--> 00:15:13

And even for that, there is hope because Allah subhanaw taala mention

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

is Allah mentioned that a man will come to Allah and when they put his deeds in the visa their deeds will be formed the one side of the middle only even

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

only

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

switches like this one pan is up in the air sitting on the ground

00:15:34--> 00:15:38

and then the man will be asked, Do you have anything to put in the other side.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

So, you will be taught or you have something

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

he said what do I

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

think

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

so, he will be given a piece of paper

00:15:59--> 00:16:30

with something written on this and he will be said take this and put it in the other side. So, the man will take this piece of paper with something written on it and he will put it on the other side of the tank and masala Sallam said that he said it will come down with such violence. As if a huge weight has been put it will slam on the ground. The other man with his documents or he will will fly in the air and he said those things of is the record of evil will fly because it will jump like this

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

sohar Allah, Allah what is written on this paper

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

and

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

said La ilaha illallah wa

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

just the matter.

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

Now, this is not licensed for you to go to all kinds of evil

00:16:52--> 00:16:52

because

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

they say

00:16:56--> 00:17:02

that the one who has who says the kalevala class will get the sabarimala

00:17:03--> 00:17:09

bless them and and fill them with this Arizona what is the class of the

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

class of the caravan is that it keeps you away from

00:17:16--> 00:17:25

So, let us remember this it does not mean simply I have the kalama in my heart and I spent all my nights in the in the pop bar in the disco.

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

Then there is a serious doubt whether that is actually there in

00:17:31--> 00:17:40

Santa Monica is explained his mercy. Then Allah subhanaw taala said in other place, we are in the first point what is the first point count the blessings Allah

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

count the blessings of Allah.

00:17:44--> 00:17:45

So Allah Subhan Allah said in

00:17:47--> 00:17:50

other places, he listed his blessings. And he said

00:17:52--> 00:17:53

Allah Jalla

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

wa Ala Moana komazawa

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

boom Baba.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

Baba Naina

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

in

00:18:31--> 00:18:33

the last record, I described all the blessings of

00:18:35--> 00:18:59

Allah created here, like a bed, have you not created the mountains as begged for that the tectonic plates would not have you not created you in bed male and female. Have you not made your sleep a thing of rest if he didn't have sleep tomorrow? And he said have you not made the night as a covering? Have you not made the day a place where you can go and earn your livelihood and have been not built you and we built us about

00:19:01--> 00:19:14

seven heavens each of them so strong and happy not made they're in a shining lamps rajwada the sun again come to the cosmology talk and we'll see what the sun is. And now

00:19:16--> 00:19:42

we have sent the clouds heavy with rain, abundant water see what happens when there is too much water today there are floods in Brazil, there are floods in Australia We ask Allah subhanaw taala to alleviate the suffering of those people and to help them so Allah somebody sent me a video yesterday a flash flood cars are going you know, nice big Toyota landcruisers and Mercedes and all that they're going in that water like paper boats gone

00:19:45--> 00:19:51

and I don't think your your may back or your Ferrari Enzo, is that a chance either.

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

You'll also go like a bit over there.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Somebody when I was making a speech, South Africa, somebody said you are very peculiar.

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

motorizing why because you know all these things about Ferrari. And

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

so anyway,

00:20:09--> 00:20:15

he said, because they produce they're in the car and vegetation and gardens of the growth my brother and sisters.

00:20:17--> 00:20:56

Allah Himself said that if the seas become ink and the trees become pens, you can still not write the blessings of Allah and you can still not write a diary of Allah. So how am I going to do that? But the point of saying this too, and just drawing your attention to to small parts of the Quran is to start to thinking, now what I want you to do is very simple. I want you to go home today and do not go to sleep tonight. Before you do, I want you to go home today, take a white sheet of paper, or sit before the computer, if that's what you do better. And write out I want you to do this as an exercise my request I can't make you do it. I'm requesting write down all the blessings of Allah

00:20:56--> 00:21:03

subhanho wa Taala. All the things that you have from Allah subhanho wa Taala,

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

which you like,

00:21:06--> 00:21:11

Go stand in front of the mirror and says Mandala What a beautiful face Allah created.

00:21:13--> 00:21:16

No, at least you think so that's good. And your mom will think so as well.

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

Even if nobody else does.

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

But go down the

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

list down, I want you to list out every single thing, every single thing list.

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

One, list all of these.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

And then we'll come to the second part, which is to make sure

00:21:39--> 00:21:47

each and every one of these things. And you know the way to this dominate and you think make sure just imagine what it would have been if that was not there.

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

Just that's the way to see.

00:21:53--> 00:21:56

There was a time when if I

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

had no glasses,

00:21:59--> 00:22:06

and I put my reason was absolutely 2020 I couldn't I could see far into the distance. And I could read the paper without absolute any problem.

00:22:08--> 00:22:14

Today when I am sitting and making a via or making a talk and there are some sisters on one side,

00:22:15--> 00:22:18

then they are incomplete, whether they know it or not, because I can see them.

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

When I vary my reading glasses, all I can see is what

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

it's nothing else.

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

And this is the story for every single one of us. When you are in your 20s

00:22:39--> 00:22:42

the blood is boiling in your wings. It's racing up and down.

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

But we all stood up happens every single one of us

00:22:49--> 00:22:53

to stand up and make a list and find a man came

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

along and said

00:22:56--> 00:23:00

what do I have to be grateful for? And this man was very poor and he wasn't.

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

He said you keep saying be Mexico be grateful.

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

What

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

can you urinate without pay?

00:23:14--> 00:23:17

The man said yes. He said thank Allah for that

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

swallow as the person who has urinary urinary tract infection UTI

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

as the person who has UTI what it means to urinate without pain.

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

So imagine your life without those

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

health and well.

00:23:43--> 00:23:46

We're number one on that list what a man.

00:23:47--> 00:23:58

Then after that health and alcohol and strength and beauty and knowledge and a good family. A wife who respects you as one who cares for you, children who respect you.

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

Parents who care for you.

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

So Allah parents in a god what do you

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

what is the value of the daughter of your father?

00:24:12--> 00:24:16

Put $1 value on today we live in a world with the dollar value network.

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

On your balance sheet, my father, my mother

00:24:23--> 00:24:26

and on the other side put something in there to see how many how many zeros you put on that.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

The day goes when you realize that

00:24:32--> 00:24:33

was realized divorce was

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

the key to the love of Elijah.

00:24:43--> 00:24:47

And what is this what is the proof of that? Allah subhanaw taala said in so many

00:24:49--> 00:24:51

ways that Donna rokoko

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

in Chicago

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

while I am in nada de la de

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

Allah says

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

that when the man is grateful to me, when he makes sugar,

00:25:08--> 00:25:12

Allah will increase the mountains lambda

00:25:13--> 00:25:17

lambda lambda is very truly certainly

00:25:18--> 00:25:32

one and the one who denies in de Lucia de let him be very let him be warned that my other high punishment is very severe, Lucha de once again tacky.

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

So to make sure

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

we have to be

00:25:39--> 00:25:53

conscious of what the bounties are, so, count the blessings, and make sure to Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, from the Hadith that used to worship in the night in

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

LA.

00:25:58--> 00:26:03

Start shortly after, you've after a little bit of rest, he was tired, and then he would stand almost too fast.

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

So, sometimes his blessed feet would get swollen standing.

00:26:10--> 00:26:11

So I

00:26:12--> 00:26:22

asked him what he said, Why do you cry so much? And why do you stand in Salah so much and your feet are swollen and so on, you know, away, take it easy, I mean, you know,

00:26:24--> 00:26:27

forgiven you, all your sins.

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

The ones before

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

Allah has made you must, why must you do this?

00:26:39--> 00:26:39

And

00:26:41--> 00:26:47

he says, should I not be a grateful slave? He said, If Allah has forgiven everything for me, should I not be grateful?

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

Where is the thinking?

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

And where is our thinking?

00:27:03--> 00:27:20

Apart from all of this, apart from EMR, and apart from all the worldly wealth in this data, there is something that is even more important to be thankful to Allah for. And you know what that is? That is the potential and possibility to make Toba.

00:27:24--> 00:27:30

Imagine what would have happened if Allah subhanaw taala had not given us this opportunity for

00:27:32--> 00:27:35

what would whatever you're done is done finished.

00:27:40--> 00:27:47

at the mercy of Allah, Allah subhana wa Hola, Eva da, da da da, da

00:27:48--> 00:27:57

la taco Nacho in LA in La Jolla. Romo by Jamia

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

unless you

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

say to them, Well, yeah, buddy.

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

Oh my slaves.

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

See the again, learning Arabic is very important because the grammar of the Quran is what

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

Allah

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

Allah,

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

Allah.

00:28:31--> 00:28:33

Allah said yeah, by d.

00:28:34--> 00:28:35

o wisely.

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

mice?

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

And what kind of

00:28:43--> 00:28:52

Allah, Allah nasaan to see those who have transgressed against themselves. Let us understand this.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

Let us understand this.

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

When we come into sin, who are we having?

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

I mentioned this in the last few modules

00:29:04--> 00:29:05

who are having

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

if I get drunk and I'm lying in a gutter somewhere who is being harmed?

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

Me or Allah?

00:29:15--> 00:29:18

When we make a song, who are we harming?

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

ourselves,

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

ourselves

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

by slaves who have transgressed against themselves.

00:29:31--> 00:29:34

Do not despair of the mercy of Allah

00:29:36--> 00:29:37

to despair at the mercy of Allah.

00:29:40--> 00:29:44

If somebody says Allah will never forgive me that we should never make a statement so Allah

00:29:45--> 00:29:57

to make Toba there is nothing that Allah will not forgive and what is the proof of this? Because the what is the biggest sin? The one that has the biggest punishment? What is the biggest punishment in the Hellfire forever?

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

And what is that Hellfire?

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

Whatever that is for which sin ship

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

but what about

00:30:05--> 00:30:12

somebody who has been worshipping stones and trees and dogs and cats and cows and god knows what for all his life

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

and then that person

00:30:15--> 00:30:33

one hour before he dies or five minutes before he dies on one minute before he died is Chateau La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah He and he Anders accepts Islam. And then he dies. What is our Akita? What is what does Islam say about that person? Is he in Elmira, Indiana. He is in Geneva.

00:30:35--> 00:30:37

That is the power of power.

00:30:38--> 00:30:56

So first thing I want you to play today is to make a list of things that Allah has given you. And next to the second thing I want you to do and I am doing it myself right now right now do it right now is to make Toba right now they come and say Allah forgive whatever I have done.

00:30:59--> 00:30:59

Yes.

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

Make a stopper while

00:31:06--> 00:31:12

you mmediately make everything whatever you have done Yala. Please forgive because Allah subhanaw taala said he will forgive.

00:31:14--> 00:31:20

And he said do not despair of my merci la Rahmatullah whatever you have done. Last forgiveness.

00:31:24--> 00:31:30

And then as if this is not enough, tell me this one. Is it not enough for me?

00:31:32--> 00:31:35

So I did all this evil and I made

00:31:36--> 00:31:44

Isn't that enough? blank sheet to get a clean paper, you get a clean sheet, you add this whole book full of rubbish. Now all that has been everything done in

00:31:46--> 00:31:48

this format and now you gotta clean this. Yeah.

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

But this is our thing.

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

Who is Allah?

00:31:56--> 00:31:58

Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.

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

Who is Allah?

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

Allah subhanho wa

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

Are you bad? Hola, Jose de

00:32:30--> 00:32:31

Vaca Allah.

00:32:35--> 00:32:49

Allah says not only will I forgive, not only will I format that this, not only will I clean slate, but I will now substitute all the evil for good deeds.

00:32:52--> 00:32:52

And say that

00:32:53--> 00:32:56

when you hurt desires, he went around he said, I am the best of you.

00:32:58--> 00:33:07

This is you know, how can you make this everyone is trying to be good and so on. So now you come and make the best. How can you make this table he said you didn't see what Allah

00:33:08--> 00:33:18

is Allah said I will change all your evil for good deeds. He said I was the worst of you. He said nobody committed as much evil. So now

00:33:22--> 00:33:27

once again this is not licensed for you now from now on to go and commit even

00:33:28--> 00:33:34

and collect a lot of even after that you go and we are no guarantee or life.

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

no guarantee or you don't know five minutes later you are drop dead

00:33:39--> 00:33:42

and you will be resurrected in the state in which you died.

00:33:44--> 00:33:47

So if you are diving on the floor

00:33:48--> 00:33:57

to the tune of Sam this j Sam DJ bellows running those things, controls and you are jamming on the floor and you drop dead. So Allah you don't want to be resurrected like that.

00:34:01--> 00:34:07

Allah has mercy and blessings. So Allah subhanaw taala said he will change.

00:34:09--> 00:34:24

So make a list. Make sure in that list make special super for the benefit of Toba. Allah subhanaw taala mentions this whole issue of sugar Allah smart, Allah says shows us and tells us how human beings tend to be ungrateful.

00:34:26--> 00:34:31

We tend to be ungrateful we tend to take the blessings for granted as if it is our birthright.

00:34:32--> 00:34:42

And we are not grateful to Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning this, saying that this is what human beings do, which means that we should try to avoid doing the things.

00:34:43--> 00:34:47

Now again, many, many places Allah has mentioned this, but one of the places where Allah

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

laliga

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

de la dee da Rahim Allah Dr. Hassan Abu Salah, bah bah bah

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

Allah says,

00:35:23--> 00:35:32

and he Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Knower of the unseen of the sea in almighty and most possible, who made everything he created good.

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

Allah, Allah James

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

best. There's a problem with translation the translation is good.

00:35:45--> 00:35:46

It sounds good.

00:35:56--> 00:36:05

And then Allah said what? And he began the creation of man from clay, Allah made the prototype of Allah Melissa, do you know of course Allah never baby.

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

He never grew up

00:36:09--> 00:36:21

as a grown man, he breathed life he was a full grown man, because that was a prototype and then Alaska and then after creating the prototype, what do you do? You said the manufacturing process

00:36:23--> 00:36:28

is not sitting up there with clay making each person passes on some more clay, some more clay,

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

no.

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

The prototype, once the product is done, then the process

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

is in process. What we know today as genetics, human genetics will be my main

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

focus.

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

And then

00:36:51--> 00:36:54

Allah says sama sama who wanna

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

watch Allah.

00:37:01--> 00:37:02

And Allah gave nice.

00:37:03--> 00:37:06

So Allah The first time I watched the dead body.

00:37:07--> 00:37:13

This was in America, the very first time I watched the body and this man, he was 62.

00:37:15--> 00:37:25

He was in prime physical condition. He was a nuclear Medical Doctor, Doctor of nuclear medicine, and he dropped dead on a tennis court.

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

He was playing Genesis fit enough to play tennis, and he was in the middle of a magic rocket.

00:37:33--> 00:37:40

And that's a long story. I won't tell the story now, but when I made the impression My mind is alive today. When I was watching this body

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

I had this uncanny kind of feeling that this man is actually a life

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

as myself What is the difference between this man and me?

00:37:49--> 00:37:53

How come that he is like that? And I'm watching him.

00:37:54--> 00:38:09

No difference. No difference. The body is feeling warm. It is soft. dragger mortis is not set in his eyes look like eyes is yours look like yours is no Lusaka. No, this is an absolutely is like a man asleep.

00:38:12--> 00:38:16

Until that's the reason why mama one must take a breath from the experiences of one's life.

00:38:18--> 00:38:22

Till today, the third memory that is no different what is the difference between that man and me?

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

What is it that this rule of which Allah has given?

00:38:28--> 00:38:28

And he said,

00:38:29--> 00:38:31

Yes Allah can you

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

call your

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

mama

00:38:39--> 00:38:40

they ask you about the role

00:38:42--> 00:38:44

model and we have given you a little bit of our knowledge.

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

That is what keeps us going.

00:38:51--> 00:38:55

And Allah describes this process, some our vasavada

00:38:56--> 00:39:06

the hearing and the sight and the understanding, Swan Allah describes this process in the actual order in which it is formed.

00:39:08--> 00:39:09

Today we know this from Genesis

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

in the order

00:39:16--> 00:39:24

and then Alaska Ariela Martha's Kuru, but they are not grateful. Little it is the degree that they are grateful for.

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

So to make sure that Allah

00:39:28--> 00:39:54

and the Last point, three ways or three stages or steps to love Allah, what is the first one? Count the blessings? What is the second one? Next shocker. And third one is never use it against Allah. Never use what Allah has given you against him. Because you got it from him and I just think about is every single thing of value we got without asking.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

I want you to think about this. Every single thing of value

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

We got without asking and we got without paying.

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

If you don't accept what I'm saying that I'm asking you this question, my question is, did you make God for you, man? Or did you pay for a man? Did you make God for your eyesight? How much did you pay for your eyesight? Did you make graph for strength? That you should not have a paralytic stroke? How much did you pay for that? Did you have you make graph for your hearing? To make, to to hear properly? Did you make proper hearing? How much did you pay for good hearing? Did you make for your for your understanding and your intelligence and knowledge? How much did you pay for that?

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

And if it goes,

00:40:45--> 00:40:50

if it goes, how much money do you think it costs to get it back?

00:40:51--> 00:41:01

You know what all these great corporate hospitals and medical tourism the word is, you know what medical tourism runs on? It runs on the fact that you can't get it back.

00:41:03--> 00:41:09

And it runs on the fact that you have hope that you can get it back into spending of money.

00:41:11--> 00:41:13

And an entire industry runs on that basis.

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

If

00:41:17--> 00:41:22

you don't believe me go to the hospital. They're right down the road you go to the hospital

00:41:23--> 00:41:27

as how many blind people can see how many people have got diabetes, diabetes is gone.

00:41:28--> 00:41:32

I go to the cancer as well as how many people are complete reverses.

00:41:33--> 00:41:36

complete remission of cancer, cancer. God tell us

00:41:37--> 00:41:42

if it happens once in a million, the big news Why is it big news? Because it happens once in a million.

00:41:43--> 00:41:45

What about the others? doesn't go?

00:41:49--> 00:41:58

I said get him Can you come back? 2020 No. Hearing goes, can it come back? No. Now point is this. All of this regard without asking.

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

And all of this regard free without paying? Now tell me is it what do you say about somebody who get something from someone without asking? And who gets it for free? And that person then not only misuses it, but uses it against that person what do you call a person you call him name which I cannot unfortunately say because of where I'm standing here.

00:42:26--> 00:42:28

But you asked me the names outside when I'm in the parking lot.

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

What do you call that person?

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

Even

00:42:37--> 00:42:40

so I say to that third thing is what you know what?

00:42:42--> 00:42:51

If you want to use your eyesight to look at, get eyesight from somebody other than Allah first, and then please go and do that no problem. But the eye said Allah gave you if you use it,

00:42:52--> 00:42:55

then you are a traitor against Allah subhanaw taala

00:42:56--> 00:42:59

you're hearing the hearing which Allah Allah gave you.

00:43:01--> 00:43:02

If you want to use this hearing,

00:43:04--> 00:43:11

to listen to when stuff with Allah subhanaw taala has made her amplified hearing from somewhere else first, then go use that.

00:43:12--> 00:43:17

Because if you use the hearing which Allah gave you to listen to what is Hara, then you are a traitor against Allah.

00:43:19--> 00:43:25

Your hands and feet and strength and all those nice muscles that you build up uses the boys not either they look nice.

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

And they were close where they look like they be melted and poured into the teacher the teacher because no other way of him getting into the teacher.

00:43:37--> 00:43:41

Job is about men and women just because you got a nice body and got nice muscles doesn't mean

00:43:49--> 00:43:52

you got to make the other fellow standing next to him.

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

Because when he goes in before

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

the only thing is when somebody like a nephew you want to go first and you go hit the ground first and stay up while he

00:44:10--> 00:44:12

swana Have mercy on yourself.

00:44:13--> 00:44:14

wear proper clothes.

00:44:17--> 00:44:32

We like to tell the sisters the price to them also it also applies to you by the way when did you get this impression that for the men there is no dress code you can do a wear what you want or you know not wear anything you don't want to have a law that law for savasana not for you.

00:44:33--> 00:44:34

All the Bollywood fans.

00:44:37--> 00:44:55

obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala Why? Because everything we have is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and if we use the faculties and the strengths and the power that Allah has given us, against him, and remember that Allah has the power to take it away.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

Remember when you look around that Allah has the power to speak

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

Right you blind at that instant. When you listening to music which Allah has made haram remember that Allah has the power to make you Deaf from that instance. When you are when you walk and go towards that which Allah subhanaw taala has made Haram.

00:45:19--> 00:45:30

Remember that Allah subhanaw taala has the power to paralyze you so that you fall on the ground on the street and you will not be able to enter that discord pub or club that you want it to go.

00:45:32--> 00:46:17

It is only the mercy of Allah Allah subhanaw taala leaves the door open Allah says oh, let him go. He will come back and make Toba inshallah Allah, Allah knows is not waiting for you guessing to see what happens Allah knows. But Allah gives this opportunity. My brothers and sisters, it is only a call it is only intelligence to take advantage of this opportunity and say to Allah, Allah, I made this the year from now. And I want all of you to say this, y'all I made this new year from now that I will never ever disobey you in anything in this world. until the day I die, no matter who else is pleased or displeased The only one whose pleasure and displeasure I'm concerned about is you

00:46:19--> 00:46:34

I will not disobey you from today until the day I die. And yeah, you be my caffeine and you will be my advocate and you be my author on the day of judgment and deliver me from the alpha

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

please

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

make this

00:46:42--> 00:46:45

masala does not give us opportunities again and again and again.

00:46:48--> 00:46:57

And take advantage of the fact that Allah has given us this opportunity that we are able to have a reminder that we can make this law and

00:46:58--> 00:47:10

live our life because my brothers and sisters last point before I close Allah subhanaw taala also mentioned those people who like to take this Islam has been selectively they take some and they leave some

00:47:12--> 00:47:15

they take what they like and they leave what they don't like

00:47:17--> 00:47:24

they like to go to the club and the disco they go there and then they come on Oh brother I'm also making Salah law

00:47:27--> 00:47:29

00:47:31--> 00:47:32

you may sell what you think what you're doing

00:47:38--> 00:47:42

and I worship only you and I asked help from you then you go to them

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

and you may

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

or you may say

00:47:51--> 00:47:51

this

00:47:55--> 00:47:59

so why did Allah subhanaw taala say about those people who

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

take the teen selectively word Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:48:06--> 00:48:11

una de la de da de una de forma de

00:48:31--> 00:48:37

Will you be like those who take something of the book and that deny the rest?

00:48:38--> 00:48:42

They take that from Islam which suits them and they will live on the rest.

00:48:44--> 00:48:52

Allah says and if you are like that what will happen to you? What is the agenda for such people? What is the reward of the people? Allah says his God

00:48:53--> 00:48:59

you will ever live in this world which will be hard and harsh. And then what will happen to you on a day of judgment

00:49:02--> 00:49:03

you're gonna lash out

00:49:04--> 00:49:17

you will be turned towards severe punishment again. worst punishment. Why? Because you picked and chose to take you took from the deen of Allah what suited you This is the highest form of disrespect

00:49:19--> 00:49:22

what is the what is motto over Islam?

00:49:23--> 00:49:25

Why did Allah say about Islam?

00:49:26--> 00:49:27

Yeah

00:49:29--> 00:49:33

Whoa, whoa whoa v sailmakers silica.

00:49:36--> 00:49:42

In the hola Komodo movie, how much Islam? How much?

00:49:44--> 00:49:46

Completely fully.

00:49:47--> 00:49:52

people already have you man think about this again. You I cannot make up Sierra is

00:49:53--> 00:49:56

no time for that. But think about this. The AI is coming to home.

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

grammatically correct

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

all

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

what is wrong with a dumb grammar?

00:50:08--> 00:50:09

But Allah is not saying

00:50:11--> 00:50:21

oh believe enter into Islam fully What does it mean? It means that it is possible to believe yet not enter Islam fully do something and leave something.

00:50:23--> 00:50:24

Allah says don't do this.

00:50:27--> 00:50:34

Do not follow the footsteps of Jeddah because the shaitaan is your worst enemy now in the Who? La kumanovo movie.

00:50:36--> 00:50:37

My brother and sisters,

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

the last one

00:50:42--> 00:50:47

that I give to those people who obey Allah, Allah no matter who says what

00:50:48--> 00:50:52

Allah Allah said Manami lasallian Zachary No.

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

Father, No One No One

00:51:06--> 00:51:11

whoever does good deeds and whether they are men or women male or female,

00:51:12--> 00:51:17

while they are believers, two conditions first condition must have him and second condition must.

00:51:19--> 00:51:20

Whoever does this

00:51:22--> 00:51:33

wonder what happens to them Allah subhanaw taala said Verily to that person, we will live a good life in this world. No, no. Hi Adam.

00:51:35--> 00:51:42

Islam is about leading a beautiful life in this world. and gentlemen, the year after inshallah.

00:51:44--> 00:52:02

Islam does not say your life is what will be held, and only gender is there after you die. No. If you live according to Islam, according to the Sharia, they live in this world will be beautiful, a life of honor respect of clean, a clean life, a life of peace of mind.

00:52:03--> 00:52:05

And then whatever the India

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

and

00:52:09--> 00:52:30

he said, we will give you and we will give you a beautiful life of his work and we shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do with a certain asset. This means that if there was one deed in your whole life which was the best, say for example, make a hatch. And may Allah, Allah grant all those who are here.

00:52:33--> 00:52:46

If you have not made it now and you are, you are liable for it nignia to go in this coming year, make the Nia and go because do not die without making hides, when had was poured on you,

00:52:47--> 00:52:49

00:52:51--> 00:52:57

snake had to say for example, you are you may have just had Allah has accepted what is the reward for an accept

00:52:58--> 00:52:59

freedom for all since

00:53:01--> 00:53:04

the person will come out of the barn on that.

00:53:05--> 00:53:15

What Allah says Allah said Allah will reward you for all your good deeds in proportion to the best use to do so one deed will be taken is the best okay for everything.

00:53:16--> 00:53:20

So hon Allah Subhana Allah allies you know,

00:53:23--> 00:53:32

like Salah the language doesn't work and that doesn't work in the year doesn't work for Salah because in the Salah standard you're taking account of all your shops and businesses.
