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

In al hamdu Lillah

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

wa Salatu was Salam O Allah shadowfell ambia wa Ali he was happy woman Hala

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

Hala de la vida

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

de novo Manila Moto Z. co founder Tamar, mommy Morocco na home Yun rakuen fala talamona su mo Fiala home in hora de Ion jezza Mb Ma, can we I'm alone?

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

My dear brothers and sisters,

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

I want to ask myself and you a basic fundamental question

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

and the reason for asking you the question is not that you have to give me an answer.

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

But you have to give yourself an answer.

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

And you and I will have to give Allah subhanaw taala an answer to this question.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

And the question is very simple.

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

The question is, do you believe Allah?

00:01:11--> 00:01:15

So very simple question. Do you believe Allah?

00:01:17--> 00:01:21

Do you believe the Messenger of Allah Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:01:24--> 00:01:34

Obviously, you ask this question to any Muslim. There's no Muslim who will say I don't believe Allah. He does not believe Allah then he is not a Muslim. But the question is not

00:01:35--> 00:01:47

a matter of simply asking a question giving an answer. The question is inside the heart. Do I really believe Allah subhana wa Taala Do I really believe Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu listen

00:01:48--> 00:02:00

and that is the reason I began my foot by with the I have zero such that when Allah subhanaw taala says that a Jaffa you know, boom, bada boom, whoa Fung Wah Tamara. avi Moroccan.

00:02:03--> 00:02:38

Allah says the sides forsake their beds, they get up in the middle of the night, and they stand before Allah subhanaw taala by in AlkaViva. Tomorrow, between fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala and hope of Allah subhanaw taala has mercy. The position of the Muslim is between these two points, the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala because of his or because of His Majesty, because of his grace, because of his greatness, and because we believe that we have to one day stand before him an answer. And the other position is the position of hope from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:39--> 00:02:45

By AlkaViva, Tama Avi Murat Naumann, Allah said under spend from what we have given them.

00:02:46--> 00:03:28

And then Allah subhanaw taala says the promise of Allah for Allah tala munaf sama fellowmen, karate iron jazza am Bhima kameyama Lu, Allah says that if they knew these people who stand in the Knights in this state between hope and hope, and ask Allah subhanaw taala they stand in the night and they speak to the rub, they stand in their night and they talk to Allah subhanho wa Taala. They tell Allah their story. And why does that seem strange to us today? It does not seem strange to you. If I tell you that I'm telling my story to my friend here who know who I know. But it seems strange to us if I tell you that I am talking to God. That I'm talking dolla dolla dolla because we have no

00:03:28--> 00:03:38

concept we have no connection with Allah subhanaw taala Illa Mashallah, we have lost our connection with Allah subhanaw taala. So, when somebody speaks in terms of connection to Allah, it seems strange to us.

00:03:41--> 00:03:50

But Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this, Allah said that if they knew what I have prepared for them as a reward for this action of this,

00:03:51--> 00:04:09

then they would be delighted. It would be the coolness of their eyes, the promise of Allah subhanaw taala let us look at the promise of his baby mamas Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith narrated by oma Habiba, radi Allahu Allah,

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

one of the mothers of the believers

00:04:14--> 00:04:18

and she said, and she narrated from masala Salah Salem

00:04:19--> 00:04:27

and said that if any Muslim prays for the sake of Allah 12 Raka at every day over and above the earth,

00:04:29--> 00:04:39

if any Muslim prays 12 rocket more than the fourth, on any day, Allah subhanaw taala will build a house for him in Jannah. Allah will build a palace in Ghana.

00:04:42--> 00:04:52

And then she adds and says, and these are her words, she says, After I heard Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam saying this, I have never missed those 12 rocket.

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

Now what are these 12 rockets, the two rocket of sooner before further

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

The forager before

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

the two rockets of Santa aftermath,

00:05:06--> 00:05:09

and the two rocket of soon after Asia.

00:05:11--> 00:05:25

Yes, to before further for before the war and two after the war, the other four before the war and two after all, so foreign to six to eight, and then two after Muslim, which is 10 and two after Asia which is 12.

00:05:28--> 00:05:52

So, 12 rock at the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we know that when also lies Allah, Allah makes a promise. He's not making a promise on his own, he's making a promise because this is from the healer motlow the way that is not recited, which was sent to him by Allah subhanaw taala. So when does that Allah will make a palace in Jeddah. He's not speaking on his own behalf. Allah subhanaw taala told him that he makes a palace in Jannah.

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

Now, question is this.

00:05:58--> 00:06:15

For most of us here, neither this ayah of surah says that, nor this heaviness is strange. For most of us here, we have heard both this ayah and this hadith many times. The question is, and that's why I said, Let us ask ourselves, do I really believe Allah?

00:06:16--> 00:06:23

Do I really believe Allah? How real is gender to me? How real is that Palace in general to me?

00:06:24--> 00:06:53

Because why am I asking that? Because it is natural logic and sensible thing, that the person who believes in a return on investment invests in that thing, which gives him that great return? Yes. If I tell you that I am going to give you some insider information about an IPO that is coming. And this company, they're going to float shares, and that IPO is going to go it's going to get oversubscribed. And you're going to get one to 10,000 1200, whatever return that what will you do?

00:06:55--> 00:07:25

If you believe that information? I mean, you might say, Well, you know what this guy talks about, you know, we, we don't know if this is all? Maybe it's all bunkum, and I put my money and I get nothing. But if you are not that he was no, no, no, this guy is one of the biggest brokers on the stock exchange. I mean, if he says something like his word is absolutely sure, you know, and he's my dear friend. And he's not broadcasting this information everywhere. And when the man is saying this is also saying, and you can see from his own balance sheet that he has invested himself.

00:07:27--> 00:07:38

Yes. And that's an important point. Yes. If I'm asking you invest in something, what will you ask me? You say, Well, how much have you put in there? And I tell you, I've put in every cent that I have gotten, I can prove it to you.

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

Then you believe me or not? you believe me?

00:07:43--> 00:08:00

And then what do you do? If you believe me in this in this particular case, where you know, you're going to get this great return on this investment? And you believe me? What do you do to invest? You invest? You say, Alright, here is a man who is speaking the truth. He's promising me a great return on my investment. He himself has invested.

00:08:01--> 00:08:02

Now what?

00:08:04--> 00:08:26

Now one of two things, either I still don't believe in, and I said, sorry, I'm sorry, I don't believe you. Either. You are a liar. Or maybe you are just you're not? Are you speaking the truth, but your judgment is wrong? I'm sorry. I don't trust your judgment. That can be the can also be the case. I mean, you're not lying, but maybe you're mistaken. Right? Maybe your judgment is wrong. So sorry, you may have invested, but I'm not investing.

00:08:28--> 00:08:40

Or you say no, no, no, I believe you. And I believe your judgment, and I believe you are right, and you have invested I have faith in you. And therefore I will also invest one of two situations you can have. There's no third situation in this case.

00:08:41--> 00:08:46

Therefore the question I asked myself and asked was this, do we believe Allah?

00:08:48--> 00:08:52

Because if we believe Allah, then what am I doing sleeping at that part of the night?

00:08:54--> 00:09:03

What am I doing sleeping at that part of the night? A one who believes in this I have zero such that, how is it that he does not pray that

00:09:05--> 00:09:17

the one who believes in his Hadees of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam with respect to the father of this the Sunnah after the first Salawat? How is it that this person the military makes Alam after he walks?

00:09:19--> 00:09:35

Let us give them the best of doubt and say maybe he is going to persona in his house. If he's doing that Alhamdulillah there is no problem. There is no compulsion that you have to pray sooner in the masjid. As a matter of fact, it is better to pray sooner in the house. But what if the person is not praying soon at all?

00:09:36--> 00:09:40

Then what does it say about his faith in the word of Mohammed Rasul Allah Allah Allah.

00:09:43--> 00:09:53

Just as an example I gave you two one Hadith and one I but obviously this applies to all the promises of Allah and all the promises of Rasul Allah Salah.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

And therefore I say today, the topic of this whole base, How real is

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

On

00:10:01--> 00:10:22

How real is gentleman in our LLC in the leadership excellence course we ask people to do an exercise. We said make a balance sheet, make a balance sheet. On the left side you put left behind make a column saying left behind, what are the things I am leaving behind my material possessions and so on and so forth. And on the right column you put sent ahead,

00:10:25--> 00:10:46

sent ahead. And why is this balance sheet important? I recommend to you make this balance sheet and keep updating this balance sheet on a daily basis. You know why this balance sheet is important? Because what you leave behind you will be questioned about Allah subhanaw taala will take us up and what you send ahead, Allah subhanaw taala will give you a reward.

00:10:47--> 00:10:56

In sha Allah, what you sent ahead is what Allah subhanaw taala will give you and show you the account of this is what you sent and this is what I'm giving you.

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

And what you leave behind

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

is something that we will have to answer dollar for

00:11:04--> 00:11:14

and if what we leave behind is entirely halaal. Then if Allah takes us up, rasulillah salam said the one for whom Allah takes us up is destroyed.

00:11:16--> 00:11:28

It's only the mercy of Allah that will take us out of that, but what if there is in what we leave behind? If there is also some mixture of what is haram? Then what

00:11:31--> 00:11:36

make a balance sheet. Now, having said this, let us look at

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

those people

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

who believed in this gentleman

00:11:46--> 00:11:55

who believed the word Muhammad Rasul Allah, Sal COVID believed the promises of Allah. What was their life? Like? What did they do?

00:11:57--> 00:12:05

The famous saying of Alibaba with Alibaba alano. He said that if Jana and Johanna are brought before me, and put in front of me,

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

my eyman in either will not change by an iota.

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

He said, I already believe in Jana and Jana, to the extent where there cannot be any change even if I see.

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

Now, what is this? What is this level of your cane that he's talking about?

00:12:23--> 00:12:37

And as I told you, the Sahaba rasulillah salam are the gold standard, they are the ones against whom everyone else will be measured, not against anyone else against the Sahaba De La Silla. And therefore, what will we do?

00:12:38--> 00:12:42

On the day when the curtain is lifted, and we are faced with reality.

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

And we lived in denial all our lives.

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

The pain of regret

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

is the worst of all pains.

00:12:54--> 00:12:58

And therefore, let us not fall into that pain, the pain of regret.

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

So let us see examples of people who believed who believed Allah and who believed his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

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

garbin Malika Delano he was one of those people who also recorded the revelation

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

that he and carbon moloko Delano noritz.

00:13:22--> 00:13:29

He said we'll have for Hajj with the agreement that we would meet at Aqaba in the Yamato shirak

00:13:30--> 00:13:43

the lead babina to come for Hajj. And he said that we had an agreement with rasulillah salam to meet him in a place called acaba. In the days when you are in Vienna, in the I am with the Shrek

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

and he said we kept this a secret a secret and none of the non Muslims in our group knew about this except a man called Abu jabber.

00:13:52--> 00:14:17

And jabber was the only non Muslims from Medina who came with this group of Sahaba. They were about 70 of them. And they are Buddha was the only one who was not a Muslim and he was with his group. So they all said Tommy jabber they said, Look, give up these ways of yours. Otherwise you will become the fuel of the hellfire. So I would never accepted Islam. So then there was there were no non Muslims. Among them. They had all accepted Islam.

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

He said we came in ones and twos. And when we had all gathered,

00:14:25--> 00:14:30

Allah buzz when Abdulmutallab came with Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,

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

and he said, First

00:14:35--> 00:14:40

alibis monometallic who at that time was not a Muslim Allah Allah.

00:14:41--> 00:14:53

He said his book. And Allah bass was the man who gave protection from the one Hashem. To Rasul Allah is Allah solemn after the passing away of his brother, Abu Talib,

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

Salah bass, Rod Delano said, you know the position

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

Mohammed sallallahu alayhi salam has with us. He has our protection and is safe in his town. He now wants to join you and you have invited him. If you are sincere in your promise to protect him and support him, then it is up to you to stand by your promise. If you intend to abandon him, and give him up to his enemies, then leave now.

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

Leave him with us.

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

Now when

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

abominable botella vellano finished speaking

00:15:36--> 00:15:41

the leader of the unserved stood up and he said we have heard what Allah boss said,

00:15:42--> 00:15:52

or Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, please speak to us. Ask us what you want from us and take whatever you want from us for yourself and your

00:15:55--> 00:16:03

pseudo Salah Salem Salam stood up and said and listen to this, this speech of Rasul Allah Selim. Just see what he's asking.

00:16:05--> 00:16:09

Just ask yourself, Is it even reasonable for someone to ask this?

00:16:10--> 00:16:34

In my view, this is one of the many proofs of the divine message of Rasul Allah is Allah Salah. Because no one can logically ask something like this Rasulullah sallallahu said, I asked you to pledge that you will defend me like you defend your own women and children, that if necessary, you will give up your lives to defend me.

00:16:35--> 00:16:42

And you must pledge to hear and obey me in times of action and no action.

00:16:44--> 00:16:58

Which means that you will hear and obey me whether you like what I say or not, whether you even understand the reason why I'm saying something or not complete, implicit obedience without question.

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

And then he said,

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

and you must pledge

00:17:05--> 00:17:18

that you will give, when I asked you to give for the sake of Islam, he said, I want you to pledge that you will give when you have it, and when you don't have it in times of ease, and in times of hardship.

00:17:19--> 00:17:36

And you will advocate good and forbid evil, and you will speak out for Allah, and not fear, any blame for speaking for Allah, you must help and defend me if I come to you, in the same way as you help and defend your wives and children.

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

As I said, just think about this.

00:17:42--> 00:17:48

They are inviting him to Medina to come there. They're asking him, what can we do for you? What do you expect from us?

00:17:49--> 00:17:56

And in short, he's saying that I expect you to sacrifice your life, your wealth.

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

And your reason

00:17:59--> 00:18:08

for me, simply if I ask without a question, and without any resistance whatsoever?

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

Does this even sound reasonable to you? Seriously, think about this.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

Does this even sound reasonable to you?

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

You know what the answer said?

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

carbon molecule delana said our leader said

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

Albert Robin maruf.

00:18:30--> 00:18:33

He stood up and said jasola solar cell and

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

he said tell us what will we get in return?

00:18:39--> 00:18:42

He said tell us what will we get in return?

00:18:43--> 00:18:50

And garb in Malaga Yolanda says Allah is Allah Allah Allah Salam answered with one word. He said Jana

00:18:52--> 00:18:52

is the agenda.

00:18:55--> 00:19:01

That is not the bottom line of the story. You know, the bottom line of the story is what the answer said in return.

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

He said spontaneously, they said,

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

what a bargain.

00:19:09--> 00:19:13

They said what a brilliant deal this is. They said what a bargain.

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

What a bargain.

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

achiever, here is a man asking you to sacrifice your life and your wealth and your reason and your desire and everything you have in this world concrete stuff in your hands, and he's promising you a pie in the sky. And you say what a bargain.

00:19:36--> 00:19:37

What a bargain.

00:19:38--> 00:19:45

What does it tell you? It tells you that for them that was not a pie in the sky. That thing was more real than what they have here.

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

That is more real. That is reality in the

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

11th hour, except that we are stuck.

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

We are not watching a movie. We are in that screen.

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

So for us

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

That is reality whereas you know and I know that is not reality.

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

They said what a bargain

00:20:10--> 00:20:27

story number two. So how about roaming around the alano he was called a roomie because he had been taken as a prisoner when he was barely five years old. He was the son of an Arab governor of Alabama.

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

On behalf of the Persian king,

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

a man called Sinan, Edna Malik.

00:20:36--> 00:20:37

And so I,

00:20:39--> 00:20:49

even Malik, so why not? Even Sudan was five years old. His mother took him for a picnic to a city called a sunny

00:20:51--> 00:20:53

and the Romans attacked that city,

00:20:54--> 00:21:02

the Byzantine Empire and they took a lot of women and children as prisoners. And so I was five years old was taken as a prisoner.

00:21:03--> 00:21:17

And he was taken away from them. Now he grew up among the Byzantines among the in the Byzantine Empire among the Romans. And he passed from one master to another, he was sold many times.

00:21:19--> 00:21:52

And the he learned the language of the Romans, which was Greek, Latin, even then was the dead language, the language of speaking and so on. So forth was Greek. So swaybar room used to speak Greek, and he practically forgot Arabic. And when he finally came to live in Makkah, he almost relearned his own language. And he used to speak Arabic with an accent. And the Arabs are very particular about about accents, and so on and so on. So they used to call him rubies. He is a Roman, because he's Arabic is not clean. It's not clear his accent, he's got all sorts of accents.

00:21:53--> 00:22:02

Like for us, Indians, for example, no all of us pray when we say that there was a regime of zubi Allah He was all lean. And all the others laugh It was solid Is this

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

what happened to the bar?

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

Yes.

00:22:08--> 00:22:31

So in not only the Quran, but when you speaking Arabic, especially fossa, the language is very important to pronounce things correctly. And of course, as we know, in some cases, the meaning itself changes in some cases, your entire Salah might be invalid might be might get invalidated because of what you have how you said, whatever you said. So cyber Romeo Delano he came, and then he escaped from the

00:22:33--> 00:23:13

from the Byzantines. And finally he was brought to Makkah, and came and he became a representative of a man called Abdullah Sudan, who was an aristocrat, he was a very wealthy man in Makkah. Now, I'm dilemna, Judah had a lot of money. And so I told him that he said, Look, if you give me some of your money, I'll invest it for you. And we have a partnership deal. And you know, the profit we make I give you a share. I also keep a share. And I've done a video that said, this is good, no, let him do the work and I get the benefit. And this continued and in the process. So I have a roommate on the line who became very wealthy, because he was getting his commission out of the strip and became very

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

wealthy.

00:23:16--> 00:23:22

Now this whole story is about 20 years before sola Salah Salem proclaimed Islam.

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

So when Nabi sallallahu Sallam proclaimed Islam,

00:23:26--> 00:23:40

so ever Rumi was one of the people who heard about it. And he said, let me go and listen to what he has to say even to buy to Lacan. And he heard Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam presenting Islam, and it made sense to him and he accepted Islam.

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

Now, koresh

00:23:44--> 00:23:54

learned about this, and they started tormenting him. But because he was not a slave, he was a wealthy man. They couldn't physically do things to him, but they tried to make life difficult for him.

00:23:55--> 00:24:24

rasulillah salam, then permitted migration to Medina and he himself left and went to Medina, as whoever Rumi Allah knows intention was to actually migrate with rasulillah salam and Abu Bakr Siddiq when they were going, but the Moroccans knew or they realized that something is going on. So they actually put guards on his house. So he could not go when he was leaving. So rasaan left, and so I was stuck in Medina in Makkah.

00:24:26--> 00:24:49

Now he kept on trying to leave and he could not leave the guards were on his door. So one night, he claimed that he had an upset stomach. So he went out of his house several times in the night as if he was going to the toilet. And the guards thought that you know, well in the email be really sick or something, but he had previously made arrangements for a transport for a horse and so on.

00:24:50--> 00:25:00

So on one of these trips out of the house, he went and found his mount and he took off for Medina. Now the guards realized that he has

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

escaped. So they started chasing him. And eventually later on in the day, they caught up with him. The one that got up with him, he climbed onto a mountain, there was a there was a hillock, he climbed on top of the hill. And they surrounded the hillock, and they were coming up to get him. So server room, he was behind a rock. And he said to them, he said, Look, you know that I am the best Archer amongst you.

00:25:22--> 00:25:27

He said, you notice that I am a best Archer amongst you. So if you come after me,

00:25:28--> 00:25:31

then I will pick you off one by one.

00:25:32--> 00:25:40

And then when my arrows are over, if there is still somebody left, he said, I will come for him with my thoughts. And then we will see what has to happen will happen.

00:25:43--> 00:25:49

So they stopped, because they knew that, you know, you're talking to a man who could deliver what you were saying.

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

So, so however, Rumi then said to them, he said, Look, I know what you are after you really want my money.

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

So why don't we do a deal and my deal is that I will tell you where my money is. So you will get my money and leave me alone.

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

And see the beauty of the Muslim.

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

The Quran is these enemies, they agreed.

00:26:12--> 00:26:18

They will not say we live to God's ear to see whether you are speaking the truth or not. We go and find the money. If you find the money, then we leave you know.

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

He simply said, I will tell you where the money is. And they said, okay, we leave you. Why? Because they know that a Muslim does not lie.

00:26:29--> 00:26:46

The enemies do this, the enemies do this, that are Muslim does not lie. I mentioned this before in Africa, that in South Africa, in the apartheid days, by law, a Muslim did not need to pledge an oath in court, that He will speak the truth.

00:26:48--> 00:27:10

He did not need to swear on the Bible or anything, that I swear that I will speak the truth and nothing but that, you know, the Muslim did not need to do that. Why, by law legally, a Muslim in South Africa and the apartheid days did not need to pledge to speak the truth. Why? Because people said Muslims always speak the truth. Who are saying this? The non Muslims, it's a it's a non Muslim country.

00:27:11--> 00:27:36

It's a Christian country. And then they require Christians to swear an oath on the Bible, their own people. They require the Christians to swore to swear an oath on the Bible to speak the truth. But in a Christian country, the Muslims did not need to swear an oath on the Quran or anything. Because they say we don't they don't they don't need to swear an oath, because Muslims speak the truth. Sadly, no longer the case.

00:27:38--> 00:27:57

So So Mr. Romney says to them, I will tell you where the money is. You go get it. Leave me alone. They said okay, deal is done. They left him they went off to get the money. So ever Rumi eventually reached Koba, where Ali Salam was, was was camped.

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

And the moment Nevis Allah Salam saw him. He said also, hey, what a bargain.

00:28:06--> 00:28:21

He said, what a brilliant deal you did. He said, what a bargain. And whoever Rumi said er sola, only Allah could have told you this. Because there is no one who knows this. There is no one who knows what I did, except those people and me and those people went to Makkah.

00:28:23--> 00:28:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala sent Jubilee salam to Tel Aviv Salah Salam what was happening and Allah subhanaw taala revealed for an on this particular matter. In Surah Al Baqarah Ayah number two, not seven, Allah subhanaw taala said wamena nazima Yeah, sure enough saho EBIT la amaravati la la la hora Oh from Villa but Allah said, Enough mankind among the people is he who's who would sell himself, seeking the pleasure of Allah, swell himself.

00:28:55--> 00:29:04

Allah said among the people is the one who sells himself for the sake of Allah. And Allah is Rao from belay, but Allah is full of kindness for his lives.

00:29:05--> 00:29:15

Allah revealed the Quran on this. For whom for the one who believed in the promise of Allah, the One who was gave away his entire life's

00:29:17--> 00:29:55

collection. Think about this, I always tell people when we listen to these workouts, this is not entertainment. This is not passing of the time. Put yourself in that place. Think about your houses, think about your properties, think about your money, think about everything your jewelry, and so on and so on and say what would it be if I gave everything away? all my clothes, all my shoes, all my handbags, all my briefcases all my pens, all my goggles, all my cars, all my land, everything, everything everything every single day, except the clothes on my body. If I give everything away, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

that Allah will give me Jana

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

Then you will be doing whatsoever Romeo Delano did.

00:30:07--> 00:30:12

You're not talking about giving some money or giving some wealth, you're talking about everything.

00:30:14--> 00:30:16

Allah gave us the conclusion about the

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

Messiah.

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

Literally

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

completely everything you own nothing except the shirt on your back.

00:30:27--> 00:30:31

That is what he did. And Allah subhanaw taala revealed the Quran I'm not saying you should do this

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

by all means keep

00:30:34--> 00:30:38

live well eat halal live halaal

00:30:39--> 00:30:44

but also don't accumulate and accumulate accumulate, also think of accumulating in the IRA

00:30:45--> 00:30:51

and you will only accumulate in the asker and I will only accumulate in the archive we actually believe that accurate as true

00:30:53--> 00:31:12

if someone tells you give money for the sake of Allah new Xenon I have to make first of all to record this data to see whether I should give up money in the bottle or not. That shows your understanding of Deen. You want to make this data before you give credit. The water level make Toba make the turaga not a mistake or October

00:31:14--> 00:31:15

swaybar Rumi

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

then we go to another one

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is in Medina

00:31:24--> 00:31:29

and the young often comes to him a young boy comes to him as an orphan

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

and he comes to them and tell them a story and the story of this boy was that this boy had a small

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

a small

00:31:39--> 00:31:47

did farm garden and he had a little house there and he was trying to build a wall he was getting a wall constructed around that to secure that

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

property

00:31:49--> 00:31:57

And it so happened that there was a man who had a big dead palm garden next to his a man whose name was Alibaba

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

so Alibaba is a Muslim also

00:32:02--> 00:32:22

there was one tree of Abu Baba garden which came in the way of this wall so this is why I went Alibaba was his neighbor and he said please can you allow me Can you give me the stream? So I will cut the tree and I will make my wall I will go around the tree or something so because this is your property I would have said no

00:32:23--> 00:32:27

so he said all right. So you want you don't want to give me the tree sell me the tree

00:32:28--> 00:32:34

whatever the value of the tree I'll pay you for that. And I will build my wall I will Obama said no.

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

I will not give it to you and I will not sell it to you

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

so now this poor boy he's got no one so he went to a salon

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

and he complained complaint

00:32:45--> 00:32:49

so rationalize Allah Allah very softly said Where is Abu Baba? So they called him

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

and when he came Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said to him given that tree

00:32:55--> 00:33:01

you got a big garden so many trees hundreds of trees one tree. So give him that tree.

00:33:03--> 00:33:08

Abu Baba said no. He said it is my hug. I will not give it

00:33:09--> 00:33:12

that's all I said all right. So sell him the tree.

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

sell him the tree.

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

I would have never said no.

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

I will not sell it to him.

00:33:21--> 00:33:24

Then otherwise I'll do this sell me that.

00:33:26--> 00:33:29

Sell me the tree. He said give me one branch of this tree.

00:33:31--> 00:33:34

And I will guarantee you a tree in Jannah

00:33:35--> 00:33:42

and talking about the guarantee of Rasul Allah is Allah, Allah. He said, Send me the tree and I will give you a tree in Jeddah.

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

Abu Baba said I don't want it and he walked away.

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

He said I don't want it.

00:33:51--> 00:33:55

Now there was a Sahabi vilano, who was sitting there

00:33:56--> 00:34:01

and his name is Abu Dhabi, not a Buddha will also say Happy Buddha.

00:34:02--> 00:34:24

Buddha was known for the fact that he had one of the most profitable one of the best date palm gardens in Medina. He had a huge garden which had 600 trees in it had a house in it. He used to live there with his family. And in this in this garden was a source parallel source of Sweetwater to the very beautiful garden.

00:34:25--> 00:34:32

sambuddhassa Delano was there he heard this whole conversation. He went to a solar solar solar minister, Dr. sola if I buy this tree for you,

00:34:33--> 00:34:36

will you give me the same deal? Which you promised this man?

00:34:39--> 00:34:39

said yes.

00:34:41--> 00:34:47

So I ran behind Alibaba. And he said, You have Alibaba. Do you know me? He said, Yes,

00:34:49--> 00:34:56

sir. What do you know about me? You said you are a Buddha and you have this fantastic date palm garden.

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

Buddha said, Look, I have come to you to ask you for a favor. What's the favor? The favor is tell me that one tree.

00:35:07--> 00:35:10

Buddha was there I didn't sell it to the Prophet of Allah, Why will I sell it to you?

00:35:12--> 00:35:16

He said I did not even sell it to Rasul Allah salon. Why will I sell it to you?

00:35:18--> 00:35:23

So I would say no, no, no, listen to my whole deal. Let me first tell you what the deal is.

00:35:24--> 00:35:30

He said the deal is that I give you my garden with the house with the well with everything for that one tree.

00:35:31--> 00:35:34

sababa turned around, looked at him he said, Are you crazy?

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

He said he out of your mind your matter what?

00:35:38--> 00:35:56

Your people gathered. He said, Are you mad? Are you crazy? He said I'm not crazy. He said you are telling me that you will give me 600 dead pumps with the house and with the well and with everything for that one three, which I have. I would as I said yes that is what I am telling you.

00:35:58--> 00:36:06

So Allah said if that is what you are telling me then I am I accept it. Give it I will never said oh people you are witness this deal is done.

00:36:08--> 00:36:12

Right. Then he went to his garden and listen, people listen carefully.

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

These are hajah.

00:36:18--> 00:36:20

They are the proof. They are the standard.

00:36:22--> 00:36:45

delana goes to his to his garden. He stands outside the gates and he calls out and he's a Yamaha calling. He's calling his wife. He says Jamba gum, leave the house when the children come out. She said where are we going? He said we are going away from here. He said Why? He said because I just sold all of this for Allah and His Messenger, Salah Salah.

00:36:47--> 00:36:50

And you know what she says? She says what a bargain.

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

She says what a bargain.

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

Hey,

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

Hachi.

00:36:58--> 00:37:01

I mean, these people were seeing pictures, which we don't see anymore. Yeah.

00:37:03--> 00:37:07

They had some reality before the rice, which we don't have any more.

00:37:09--> 00:37:16

Here is this woman who just lost her house who just lost her property who just lost everything she had. And she says

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

she doesn't tell you you're crazy man. What are you talking about giving me all this?

00:37:23--> 00:37:32

Jesus what a bargain. And that is not even the end of the story. You know what Daniels story is, as he is coming out of the out of the garden with our children

00:37:34--> 00:37:50

the little ones have some debts in their hands. They're living in the middle of a game of debt god What do you think they have in their head? They had some debts in the hands on the data, holds the hands open the hand, takes out the dates throws them back in the goddesses that is for Allah come

00:37:55--> 00:38:01

we don't even take one date from that garden after your father sold it says that is for Allah came out.

00:38:08--> 00:38:13

And he said Yasser Allah tell the why that tree is his. I just bought it.

00:38:14--> 00:38:16

And he said Yasser Allah Tell me

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

Do I have my tree in general?

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

Do I have my tree engine

00:38:22--> 00:38:25

and also the alarm system? A Buddha?

00:38:26--> 00:38:28

When I promised you the tree agenda,

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

Allah showed me your agenda and he said one tree

00:38:32--> 00:38:37

and he said now Allah showed me your gender and your tree your agenda is filled with dead pumps

00:38:39--> 00:38:41

filled with pumps

00:38:44--> 00:38:46

reality my brothers and sisters.

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

Reality is that

00:38:50--> 00:38:52

which does not depend on belief,

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

reality is that which we invest in

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

my last story for today

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

today's storytelling there

00:39:05--> 00:39:07

a man by the name of sada salami, oh villano

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

African man black

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

very complex.

00:39:15--> 00:39:21

Not nice to look at the people who are dark complex and who are brilliantly handsome you will not

00:39:22--> 00:39:25

he was not yet a dark complex and and he was not that not good looking.

00:39:26--> 00:39:31

He came from a solar cell and he said jasola Can somebody with my color and agenda

00:39:33--> 00:39:41

right? Remember they are living in a racist society. Just like our society, very racist. Color is everything.

00:39:43--> 00:39:45

Even a language which is upside down.

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

Am I bet on you as the doula not only are they

00:39:51--> 00:39:54

The Soviet

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

I know all my Arab and Sudan and so on and so on. They don't understand this language I'm trying to save myself some shame is okay that you don't understand this I won't translate the hava Lakota we are racist. We are racist. have fear Allah shaitan was less was racist. He believes was the first racist. You know why? He said that even our Akala t he said my race is superior to his I am created from fire is created from soil from mud. And Allah subhanaw taala said already okay from fire, that's where you will be in the fire.

00:40:42--> 00:41:01

So Silas Lamia delana Gustave de la sala Mr. Dr. sola somebody my color can you enter Jannah Allah Allah said anyone who's there a shadow Allah Allah illallah wa shadow now Muhammad Rasul Allah will enter gender, color and race and NASA and NASA by nationality and whatever has no meaning in Islam whatsoever.

00:41:03--> 00:41:13

So sad His name is Joshua Allah Allah illallah wa shadowmaker Rasul Allah, I bear witness that there's no one worthy of worship except Allah, and I bear witness that you are His messengers all of a sudden,

00:41:14--> 00:41:24

and then sad as well. Amy says terrassa luxuria sola. For eight months, I have been trying to get married, but no one wants to give their daughter to me

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

because of my color.

00:41:30--> 00:41:36

So please help me. So rasulillah salam says to him, Do you know a man called Mr. Abdel Wahab

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

casada Salim He said, No, I don't know why. He said go and find out where is the house of Mr. Ivanova.

00:41:45--> 00:41:52

And he said, Go and tell him that I sent you to ask for the hand of his daughter in marriage.

00:41:53--> 00:42:05

Now Mr. Burnham had a daughter, who was she was like a legend in Medina. She was so beautiful that she was the most beautiful woman in Madeira.

00:42:07--> 00:42:22

And as far as LLM since this man to get married to her, to Salah salami goes and knocks on the door, our window have opened the door he says that Islam is just the Messenger of Allah has sent me Charles live and then I'm very happy he said, Mashallah, you are a guest also Salah Salem, please come in

00:42:25--> 00:42:30

and satisfy me. You know, he knows life. So he said no, before I come in, let me tell you why he sent me.

00:42:32--> 00:42:37

The Why did he send you? He said he sent me to ask for the hand of your daughter in marriage.

00:42:39--> 00:42:41

And our wife said, You are lying.

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

He said you're not you're not speaking the truth.

00:42:46--> 00:42:54

So Silas let me know he heard this. Obviously, he was upset. He turned around and he went back to a saucer salon.

00:42:56--> 00:42:57

Now this conversation,

00:42:58--> 00:43:07

the girl who Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam sent him to marry, she was in the room inside. And she heard this conversation. And she called her father. She said What have you done?

00:43:08--> 00:43:14

She said, do realize what you have done. You have refused an order of Allah Allah.

00:43:15--> 00:43:29

She said, Go run behind that man. Don't let that man reach Rasulullah sallallahu before you said go and run behind that man and tell Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam that you have accepted his proposal of marriage. I am willing to marry him.

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

So give me to him in marriage.

00:43:34--> 00:43:41

So our widow hora de la who had recently accepted Islam at that time he ran by them rasulillah salam had

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

sada salami had already

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

reached and told his story.

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

So when Mr. Bin Wahab reached their

00:43:52--> 00:43:57

rasulillah salam said to him Is this the man who rejected the command of the Messenger of Allah?

00:43:59--> 00:44:16

And Allah, I apologize. I'm very sorry. I did not realize I thought the man was lying. That's why I told him I was not I was not rejecting your command. But now that I know that he came from you, I have come to say that I'm very happy to give my daughter in marriage to him.

00:44:18--> 00:44:20

So as soon as possible and then said to

00:44:21--> 00:44:27

sada salami, he said, All right, so now you have a wife, what will you give as mom

00:44:28--> 00:44:31

because to get married, you have to get married. So what will give him our

00:44:33--> 00:44:37

society today Mr. dazzle, I have no money. I have nothing.

00:44:38--> 00:44:46

So Rajaratnam smiled, and he said, go to Mr. Mouse, and go to alibaba.com and go to admire him

00:44:47--> 00:44:48

and tell them that I sent you.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

So it was went to a dragon mouth. He gave him several 100 deram. Then he went to Nevada, and he asked him how did I give you he said sama he gave me

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

More. And then he went to Alibaba. And he said, What did they give you? It's so much he gave him more than all of that. So now sada salami is loaded

00:45:10--> 00:45:15

right is loaded. So he goes into the market or Marina

00:45:17--> 00:45:21

to buy armor and to buy another one everybody goes to buy presents I'm here

00:45:22--> 00:45:38

to give them to his wife and to buy a presents for the family and so on and so on. And in the bazaar of Medina, he hears the call. Yeah, hi Allah. Here, Gabby. Oh horsemen of Allah mount up, which was the other of jihad.

00:45:40--> 00:45:46

So Silas Lamia, Delano smiles. He looks up at the sky. And he said, Oh Allah, I choose you.

00:45:49--> 00:45:50

He's at all I choose you.

00:45:52--> 00:46:06

And then with that money, instead of buying gifts, he buys a horse. He buys armor, he buys a shield, he buys weapons. And he puts on his armor and covers himself completely, so that nothing is visible except his two eyes.

00:46:08--> 00:46:16

Why did he do that? Because he knew that he loves him. He will not let him participate in the jihad. He would have sent him back said you are supposed to get married, go get married.

00:46:19--> 00:46:24

So he hid himself from me, Salah Salah. And when he joined the troops I live in Atlanta was the

00:46:26--> 00:46:36

quartermaster general he was the one who was gathering the troops. So people ask Who is this warrior? We don't know who the man is. I live in a liberal arts I live alone. He has come to fight with us let him fight.

00:46:39--> 00:46:50

The battle started they went out in the battle the battle started this warrior who nobody knows is in the thick of it. He is fighting cutting left and right and he's in the middle of the enemy.

00:46:51--> 00:47:01

And after many hours, his horse gets tired. So the man dismounts and when it is bouncy, puts pulls up his sleeves and people see the black arm

00:47:02--> 00:47:03

and I live with

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

him. Is that sad? Is that you?

00:47:06--> 00:47:09

And so I said yes. This is me.

00:47:12--> 00:47:22

And then he mounts up again. And he goes back into the battle and is fighting and is fighting and suddenly there is a call there is a call there is a shout and this Assad has been Shaheed

00:47:24--> 00:47:27

he's that shot has been killed. He has been martyred, or Delano

00:47:28--> 00:47:32

sola sola Salaam rushed into the battlefields. He rushed into the battlefield.

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

He went to the body of Saudi Arabia Delano, he sat down, he put his head on his lap, he opened the armor, he cleaned his face with a cloth

00:47:45--> 00:47:59

and he wept and the blessed tears of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam fell on the face of sada Sulaiman Golan. And then as soon as LLM looked up at the sky, and when he looked up at the sky, masuleh, Salah Salem smiles.

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

And then he looked away.

00:48:02--> 00:48:03

He smiled, and he looked away.

00:48:05--> 00:48:07

And one of the Sahaba Who was there?

00:48:08--> 00:48:26

He asked him, he said, jasola we saw you doing something strange. We saw you looking up at you saw you first of all crying, and then we saw you looking up at the sky and then he looked away. What was this about? Let me tell ourselves that I cried because I missed my companion. I cried because my son died.

00:48:27--> 00:48:43

But he said when I looked up at the sky, Allah subhanaw taala showed me sad, sad was on the edge of a Clear Lake in Jannah. And he said, the the border of the lake, the beach of the lake is made of diamonds and precious stones.

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

And he said, I saw the waves of sides coming running to him.

00:48:49--> 00:48:54

And he said the the speed with which they were running, their shins got exposed, so I looked away.

00:48:56--> 00:49:12

And then he commanded and he said, gather all his belongings, which was his armor and so on, and said, Go and give it to our eternal Wahab and say to him, say to him that Allah subhanaw taala, married sad to a woman who is much, much more beautiful than your daughter.

00:49:14--> 00:49:18

My brother and sisters, as I told you today is storytelling day.

00:49:20--> 00:49:46

The purpose of the story is is not entertainment. The purpose of the story is is reflection is for us to think about our own lives and say, do I really believe a lie? Do I really believe the promise of Allah? Because if I believe the promise of Allah, then I have to prove that belief with investing in that which Allah subhanaw taala promised with changing my life and bringing my life in line with what will give me a reward in the Accra.

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

It's a question that I asked myself, and is a question that I asked you to ask yourself, and is a question that I suggest to you and I remind you on myself, that we have to answer this question, and we have to be convinced by this question, because if we

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

Don't answer this question, then our allies will continue to will it in the way they're currently being led. And then May Allah protect us all from that. We will face the pain of regret. And as I told you that pain is the worst of all pins.

00:50:17--> 00:50:21
