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

a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

My dear brothers and sisters and elders, today we are going to be doing the second

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

element of our brand. And we began by asking this question, what is our brand and we said brand consists of our brand consists of four elements. What are the four elements? Can somebody tell me quickly?

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

What are the first one?

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

We love Allah Masha Alhamdulillah we love Allah. Second one today is we obey Allah. We obey Allah subhanaw taala what is the third one?

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

We are one nation,

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

one nation. And the fourth one is

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

we are people with a mission. Right? Now don't go to sleep. Listen and remember

00:01:10--> 00:01:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala. The second element of our brand is Muslim. What is the meaning of Muslim? Muslim is one who has submitted to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

The one who has submitted to Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

and that is why Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

asked this question and sort of Bakara

00:01:34--> 00:01:49

and I remind myself to ask myself this question and for you to ask this question to yourself. And that question is Allah subhanaw taala said I will lay him in a shaitana regime. k fetac phoron Abdullah he works

00:01:52--> 00:02:12

for comb some unito come from a comb some la he told me Joe a lot smarter ask this question. And you have to understand the Arabic to see the the pain in this question. Okay, for tuck for una bella.

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

How can you deny Allah

00:02:18--> 00:02:57

the words of Arabic have that that the original has the element in it. And so every time when I'm praying Dharavi, especially when you know that this is going to be recited Other times, of course, it's a pleasant surprise when it happened. But in Tel Aviv, we know it is going to come. I especially look for that recitation, especially when the Imam was reciting is somebody who understands the column of Allah subhanaw taala. And you can hear it in his voice. You can hear it in his voice, okay for duck follow Nabila. How is it possible that you deny a lot of quantum data? Seeing that you were dead? You did not exist?

00:02:58--> 00:03:14

You are not there. There was no mention of you. Hello Tallinn Sani Hina Mina de la mia Khun Seamus Cora. Allah subhanaw. taala says has the human being forgotten the fact that there was a time when there was not even a mention of him?

00:03:16--> 00:03:23

Not only was he not not only did he not exist even his thought didn't exist. Even the idea of him as a person didn't exist.

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

Has he forgotten this time?

00:03:27--> 00:03:47

Welcome to Mamata and via COVID. Allah is the one who gave you life. He is the one who gave you everything that you have. He is the one that he gave you all your faculties and in good shape in good condition. He is the one who gave you that you understand. He is the one that he gave you everything that you have.

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

Somebody you meet to come and he is the one who will give you that.

00:03:53--> 00:03:57

You will die I will die. You will die and I will die.

00:03:58--> 00:04:20

Kalia tava Falcon molekule Mattila de vous que la Vico. sumaila, Robbie Cujo, Allah said molekule mouth has been set on you say to them you will die call yadava farrakhan say to them you will die molekule Mattila de vous Killa be calm and molekule mouth has been set upon you

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

so much out of the comfort zone

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

that you will be returned to Europe.

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

So, Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:04:33--> 00:04:42

he gave you life, some you may come home, he will kill you, you will die and then he will resurrect you and He will give you life again.

00:04:44--> 00:04:52

Just as he gave you life when you did not even exist, how difficult can it be to give you life once more after you have existed once?

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

How is it so difficult and why is it so difficult to believe in resurrection after death because if the one who

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

created us when we didn't even exist. There was no mention of us. What is so difficult for him to recreate us after He created us in the first place?

00:05:11--> 00:05:19

And unto Him you will return? Why might he lay down unto him is your return? How can you deny Allah?

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

Allah subhanaw taala quoted Ibrahim alayhis salam, O Allah Allah Allah

00:05:25--> 00:05:37

as the example of obedience and he said is Kala la hora boo Aslam Allah Aslam to love me, no arguments, no arguments, no hesitation.

00:05:40--> 00:05:46

When is Rob said to him submit, be a Muslim. He said I have submitted myself

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

with Karla hora boo, a slim Allah Islam.

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

That is the example for us to follow our brothers and sisters.

00:05:58--> 00:06:22

The relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala is a relationship of love. And that's why we began what is the first element of this Deen that we love Allah. We are people who love Allah subhanaw taala more than anything and anybody else. And if there is a problem with that, then we need to address that problem and correct that problem. If we love anyone and anything including ourselves in our own lives more than we love Allah, then there is a serious problem with our

00:06:23--> 00:06:36

with our faith, so we need to address that. And then if you have people who love Allah subhanaw taala we have to understand that our relationship with Allah is a relationship of love. Trying to understand this relationship through fear is futile.

00:06:38--> 00:06:57

Let me explain. Allah subhanaw taala said yeah, I hola Xena mano taco la haka Ducati. Wala Tomatina illa Anta Muslim moon, the ayah, which we hear every every Juma in the hood was part of the Muslim Koba where Allah said, Oh believe fear Allah have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:58--> 00:07:13

have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. It Allah, Hakka Ducati, not have Taqwa of Allah. Any way you think. Any way you like. But as it is is right that people should have Taqwa of him.

00:07:15--> 00:07:36

What are tomato nylon to Muslim own and do not die except in a state of Islam, except in a state of complete submission to Allah. I want you to keep this thought of taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. I want to explain to you what is the meaning of taqwa and how it is not fear. But it is fear of displeasing the one you love.

00:07:37--> 00:07:40

It's not fear of it is fear of displeasing.

00:07:41--> 00:08:02

Think about this, what is Allah subhanaw taala saying he says that do not die except in a state of submission to Allah do not die except in a state of Islam. Now think about this. If someone gave you a Lakers cup, or gave you a Manchester United united shirt, or gave you any of these or maybe a Ferrari jackets,

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

right, that's about as close as you and I will come to a Ferrari anyway.

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

And if they said to you, that we are going to send our inspector

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

to knock on your door at any time of the day or night.

00:08:18--> 00:08:47

Right. And if the inspector finds you wearing that Ferrari jacket, then the inspector will be carrying with him the keys for a brand new Enzo Ferrari. And if he sees you wearing that Ferrari jacket he will hand over the keys for the car to free, completely free. You get an Enzo Ferrari without paying for it without marrying the daughter of somebody who has an Enzo Ferrari or any of those much more expensive options like he would pay for the car directly.

00:08:49--> 00:08:59

So if somebody gives you this thing and says that all you need to do is to ensure that you are wearing that jacket when our inspector comes What will you do?

00:09:02--> 00:09:20

You will wear it even in the shower as you will wear it even in the shower you will sleep in it you will wake up in it, you will wear it until it disintegrates on your body you will not take it off at all because you don't know when that guy is going to come when he will come when he will come and knock on your door and then you become the owner of a brand new Enzo Ferrari.

00:09:21--> 00:09:29

Now, look at this one. Allah subhanaw taala says that when my inspector comes, ensure that you are in a state of Islam.

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

And then I will give you

00:09:33--> 00:09:53

not one Enzo Ferrari, I will give you the whole Ferrari factory and I will give you the opportunity to design and redesign and re design Ferraris as you go. And the opportunity to be driving on that Ferrari on an eight lane highway or by yourself and you redesign the car as you are driving. And as you are driving the car completely changes around you.

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

As you think about it. You don't even need to send it to the factory to learn or as I'm driving. I will

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

This was this and it becomes

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

as you're driving the car changes

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

as you go,

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

the last one, it will give us anything you want.

00:10:13--> 00:10:16

So, why combine Not this one? attend me this.

00:10:18--> 00:10:25

So how can we ensure? How can we ensure that we are in a state of submission when the

00:10:26--> 00:10:33

agent of Allah subhanaw taala comes and knocks on the door? What is the name of that agent? molecule mouth, molecule mouth?

00:10:36--> 00:10:58

How can we ensure that we die in a state of Islam? What is the what is the only way to do that is to live in a state of Islam. The only way that you can choose to die in a state of Islam when that time of death is not specified will route we don't know that can happen anytime. is to live in a state of Islam. 24 seven,

00:10:59--> 00:11:09

live by the code of Islam, irrespective of what anyone else says. My brothers and sisters the only one who is worth pleasing is Allah.

00:11:10--> 00:11:24

Nobody else when we seek to please only Allah, those who love Allah will automatically be pleased with us. And those who do not love Allah will be automatically displeased with us. Alhamdulillah to both

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

Alhamdulillah to both.

00:11:27--> 00:11:39

We do not have to worry about pleasing or displeasing any other person, any human being or any other creature on the face of the planet. As long as we are focused on pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

My dear brothers and sisters, the question I'm asking is

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

so do we love our Islam?

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

Ask yourself this question. Do you love Islam?

00:11:52--> 00:11:56

Please note I'm not asking do we practice Islam?

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

I'm asking do you love Islam?

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

Because sometimes you practice Islam as if it's a mercy but to be endured and somehow you know we have to pray so we come and we dumped the Salah on the carpet and we go away. It's done.

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

finished one tick Serato red tick the tick. What did that door do for you? The same thing with the uma did for me Nothing?

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

Nothing? Is it like that?

00:12:28--> 00:12:42

Or is it Are we like those who used to wait for Salah? Are we like nummies Allah Allah Allah is Allah booster Sephora hanabi hyah Bihar Yeah. Bilal used to say give me give us happiness with this as an overland call the other

00:12:44--> 00:13:02

are we like Abdullah vilano somebody went to his servant and said tell us about the life of the live neighbors. What did you used to do? The servants are very simple used to wait from one Salah to the next. He used to pray one salah and he would wait for the next and in that period he would recite Quran.

00:13:03--> 00:13:15

He will be doing his work and so on so on. But he would be continuously reciting Quran and he is waiting from one seller to the next to finish. Now he said When will the time for the Horde come? When will it come? When will it come? When will it come? I'm waiting I'm waiting I'm waiting.

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

Which one which are we?

00:13:21--> 00:13:26

My brothers and sisters? As I mentioned Allah subhanaw taala said well Lavina Amano eyeshadow, Allah.

00:13:28--> 00:14:09

Allah said the Muslims love him more than anything and anyone else. This is our character. This is our signature. This is why we obey Allah not only willingly and happily without complaint, but consider obeying him the most valuable and essential thing in our lives. My understanding is that taqwa which is mentioned and translated as fear of Allah is not fear of Allah, but fear of displeasing Allah. Fear of displeasing the one we love above anyone else. So the more we love Allah, the more we fear to displease him. And this is how taqwa and the love of Allah are directly related. The greater the love of Allah, the greater the level of taqwa.

00:14:11--> 00:14:35

The people who's not the person will not attack he is the one who doesn't love Allah. He doesn't know Allah doesn't understand. And therefore, he is able to displease Allah subhanaw taala. And the more we love him, the more we want to please Him. The more we thank him, the more we OBEY Him, and the more we will want to live our lives in obedience to Him. We do not want to rebel against him, we do not want to be ungrateful to him. And that to me is the meaning of taqwa.

00:14:37--> 00:14:50

My brothers and sisters, if you read the surah if you read the xerography Salah salon, you will see the confirmation of this understanding in the incident of who they be. Where the Sahaba cuando la la much vain

00:14:51--> 00:14:58

they obeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala despite not wanting and liking what Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted them to do

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

that

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

treaty of Buddha was very, very hard on the Sahaba. They did not like to make that treaty. They did not like Nabi sallallahu alayhi Salaam to make that treaty Rasulullah sallallahu did not wish to make the treaty, but this was the hook of Allah subhanaw taala so they enter into the treaty and the Sahaba obeyed Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they and they followed him in that treaty. And what did Allah subhanaw taala say after that, in

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

fact, hum Medina

00:15:26--> 00:15:38

in fatahna laka Rubina, Allah said, Verily, We have given you all Mohammed Salah Salem, a clear and manifest victory. What makes you was that that was a victory of submission to Allah.

00:15:40--> 00:15:56

A treaty which was the which was a symbol of within quotes defeat a treaty which was so one sided that even today if you read the treaty without a background of the Sierra, you will say, Well, you know, why didn't every seller seller sign something like this?

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

But Allah is calling it What? The greatest victory

00:16:04--> 00:16:12

that was the test. That was the final test for the sabarimala a madman when they passed that Allah subhanaw taala opened the door or doors or maka for them.

00:16:13--> 00:16:17

They were going to go they wanted to go to Makkah, under the

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

under the control of the coresh.

00:16:23--> 00:16:29

Allah subhanaw taala gave them maka the keys to Makkah in their hands. When when they obeyed Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:32--> 00:16:45

My brothers and sisters in the US Baba knows all of Surah Al Baqarah as mentioned in tafsir of Nicosia, Abu hurayrah, and even Abbas or the Allahu anhu ma narrate that when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed

00:16:47--> 00:16:57

Lila Hema is somehow to Mr. Villar y todo ma v vusi. como hacer buco mihaela

00:17:03--> 00:17:10

la la la policia toddy 30 Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:11--> 00:17:32

revealed and said to Allah subhanho wa Taala belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth. And whether you disclose what is in your hearts inside yourselves or conceal it, Allah will call you to account for it. And then he will forgive who he wishes and He will punish who he wishes. And Allah subhanaw taala is Able to do all things.

00:17:34--> 00:17:44

Please see when you read the Alibaba news all of this is it gives you a window into the lives of the Sahaba and especially into their attitudes and understanding of the Kalam of Allah.

00:17:46--> 00:17:53

the narrator's of the Hadees, Abu huraira and even Abbas Ravi Alon Omar said that this ayat was very heavy on the Sahaba

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

It was very difficult on them

00:17:58--> 00:18:22

and they went to Nabi sallallahu Sallam and they fell down in front of Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam on their knees. Please note they did not make sense that they went down on their knees with the weight and burden of this ayah the Kalam of Allah was real to them. They did not read the Quran for Salah they read the Quran because it was really to Allah subhanaw taala speaking to me, I have to answer Allah What do I say?

00:18:23--> 00:18:36

And believe me that is true for you and me? Well I one of the hakobyan, one of one of one of my co he used to say the Quran, you have to ensure that the Quran newshole happens on your heart.

00:18:38--> 00:18:43

You have to ensure that the Quran is revealed to you on your heart, then you will do what the Quran tells you to do.

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

The new jewel of the Kalam of Allah has to be on our hearts.

00:18:51--> 00:19:26

So the Sahaba went and they said to me sallallahu alayhi salam they said, Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us to pray and we pray. Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us to give Zakat and we give zakat. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that he will hold us accountable for our thoughts and our desires. They said Yana be Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have control over our tongues. We have control over our actions, but we have no control over the thought that comes into our minds unbidden. We have no control over the desire that comes into our heart unbidden. But Allah says he will hold us accountable for that and He will

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

punish or he will forgive. How can we bear this?

00:19:30--> 00:19:42

Our brothers and sisters before I tell you what Nabi sallallahu Sallam said, let me ask you a very simple question. Do you think this question of the Sahaba does it sound reasonable to you or not? What do you think? Is it reasonable?

00:19:43--> 00:19:56

Yes, no. Yes. But you know what the what the NaVi of Allah tala Salaam did. The Sahaba did the narrator he said the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was blessed face became red with anger

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

became red with anger.

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

Nabil sallallahu Sallam said will you be like those people before you? When the Kalam of Allah was revealed to them? They said some Anna Xena, we hear but we will not obey.

00:20:12--> 00:20:29

Then he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam call Santa Ana wulfrun aka Ravana wha la calma. See, he said say, Oh our Rob, we hear and we obey, and please forgive us and to you is our return.

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

whose words are these?

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

The words are Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:20:37--> 00:21:18

and see what the Sahaba did, because this is what differentiates them that was the generation which was the benchmark for the whole world. Till the day of judgment, what did they do? Immediately they came with a complaint. They came with an objection. They came with an objection which was not out of rebellion. It was an objection which seemed to be reasonable to them. They came to their to their leader to our leader to Muhammad Rasul Allah salla. Salah Without objection, but when they're nubby, and when they're gonna be in our lobby and their leader and our leader said to them, this objection is not legal, this objection is not reasonable. Say you will hear and you will obey without

00:21:18--> 00:21:40

question, What did they say? Did they did they argue with him? Did they have anything to say? No, they said immediately, some an hour Donna Oberon akara para la calma. See, Rob, we hear you and we will obey you. We hear you and we obey you, or our Forgive us, and to you is our return.

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

My brothers and sisters,

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

and then see what happened.

00:21:48--> 00:22:06

And then see what happened. Allah subhanho wa Taala liked this action of his Nabhi and and his companions so much, that Allah subhanaw taala took the same words of his enemies Allah Salah, and return them as his words, as his column to be recited until the day of judgment.

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

These are the wages of obedience

00:22:12--> 00:22:27

jabril la Salam came, and along with gibril game 70,000 angels, and Allah subhanaw taala sent down the last Ayat of Surah Baqarah, about whom there is so much of asila about which there is so much of blessing.

00:22:28--> 00:22:47

And Allah subhanaw taala sent down his words, Amano rasuluh Bhima de la la mera be me know on colonna mana De La Hoya mala G. To be Rosalie learn ofori kobane

00:22:48--> 00:22:53

Rosalie well Carlos Amina pawna

00:22:56--> 00:23:03

well Carlos I'm Anna wattana Veronica Bana, Hawaii Lake Elmo see

00:23:06--> 00:23:11

the words of Mohammed Salah Salah, the words of his Sahaba returned as the column of Allah.

00:23:14--> 00:23:18

Allah subhanaw taala could have expressed the meaning of this in his own words.

00:23:20--> 00:23:29

Think about this, think about this. Allah subhanho wa Taala could have expressed the meaning of this in his words.

00:23:30--> 00:23:36

But Allah did not do that. Allah subhanho wa Taala chose to use the exact words of Allah Allah.

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

So Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:23:44--> 00:23:48

well, Carlos, salmon pawna

00:23:50--> 00:23:55

Lake como si. And then the raw power of

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

the mercy of the one beyond whom there is no one who is merciful.

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

The forgiveness of the one

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

beyond whose forgiveness there is no one who can forgive.

00:24:11--> 00:24:18

See what he did see the wages, the rewards of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:20--> 00:24:45

Allah subhanaw taala then refuted the earlier ayah and he's Liu kalevala una de la Casa La Casa de la hamaca Sabbath. Allah said that Allah does not be a burden a person beyond his capability to bear that burden. And you will get the reward for the good which he earned and you will be punished for the evil which you are.

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

So Allah subhanaw taala then

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

revoke the earlier

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

he accepted the law of the Sahaba even before they made this law

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and then

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

See the mercy of Allah.

00:25:02--> 00:25:06

Allah subhanaw taala taught the Sahaba How to Make dua,

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

who is teaching how to make dua? The one who accepts to the

00:25:14--> 00:25:22

Jeeva is the one who accepts the door teaches you how to make that door. Then what do you say about the acceptance of that door?

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

So Allah subhanaw taala taught the Sahaba How to Make dua

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

and he said, or a ban Allah.

00:25:34--> 00:25:41

See no photo Anna robina voila, Camilla Elena.

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

na na, na na, na na ko Milka fury. me

00:26:11--> 00:26:16

sad. Allahu whenever you decided desire in Salah. He would end by saying I mean.

00:26:18--> 00:26:52

So Allah subhanaw taala taught them how to make dua and Allah subhanaw taala said asked this way, our up, do not punish us if we forget or fall into error. Our rub, do not lay on us a burden like that which you laid on those before us. We are weak or our up, do not put us put on us a burden that we that is greater than the strength that we have to bear it. And oh our pardon us. Filipina or Allah. Allah Allah amin workfit Lana Warhammer

00:26:54--> 00:27:08

wahana workfit Atlanta Warhammer, Allah, forgive us. Pardon us, forgive us, and have mercy on us. And molana You are our protector, you are our helper

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

and give us victory over our enemies.

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

My brothers and sisters, the question I asked myself, and the question I asked you to ask yourself is, are you a Muslim? Seriously, ask yourself the question. Are you Muslim?

00:27:25--> 00:28:07

Yes or no? Ask yourself this question. You don't have to answer me. You have to answer Europe. You have to answer inside your own heart. Are you a Muslim? Let us make our choice actively and consciously. Let us become Muslims by design, not by accident. Once you make the choice, please realize that you have no other choices. The meaning of ABD is slave, not servant, one of the many mistakes in translation that happened in English translation of the Quran. I don't know whose idea this was. That wherever it says Abdullah, they have translated servant of Allah. A servant is someone who comes into an employment by his own will, and he can leave by his own will. He can

00:28:07--> 00:28:11

resign and he can say Salaam Alaikum. I don't work for you anymore. Try doing that with Allah.

00:28:13--> 00:28:26

We didn't come into the slavery of Allah with our will. Allah created us and we have nowhere to go Believe me. Even if you die, you still go to Allah. So where are you Mr. or Mrs. servant? Where are you going to go?

00:28:27--> 00:28:33

We are not servants, we are the slaves of Allah and Alhamdulillah we are very happy to be the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:28:34--> 00:29:01

All of mankind are the slaves of Allah. They are all the above the law and the amatola they are the Abdullah. They are the slaves of Allah, male and female. They have a choice of being obedient slaves or being disobedient slaves. That is the choice. The choice is not whether to be a slave or not to be a slave. We are human beings. Do you have a choice of being a elephant? No matter how much you like elephants

00:29:02--> 00:29:08

Do you have a chance of becoming a cockroach No matter how much you like cockroaches. I mean, today people seem to like all kinds of rubbish.

00:29:11--> 00:29:26

Though, you just have a chance of being a good human being or a bad human being. That's all I mean, you don't have a chance of turning into something else. So also we are who we are the slaves of Allah. We do not have a chance we can resign. We can't go anywhere.

00:29:27--> 00:29:40

The sooner we come to terms with the fact that we are the slaves of Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise us and Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise us to the level where now we believe he will be given the treasures the keys to the treasures of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:29:41--> 00:29:56

we will be given the keys to the treasures of Allah. And do remember, nobody gives the keys of their treasures to rebellious slaves. The keys to the treasures are given only to obedient slaves. My brothers and sisters.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

I'm saying that we need to make this choice consciously

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

Because the freedom to choose is related only to entering Islam. Please understand this. The freedom to choose is related only to entering Islam. Once we have entered Islam, there is no choice.

00:30:16--> 00:31:03

Allah subhanaw taala does not force anyone to enter Islam. People are free to enter Islam or to stay out of it. That will not change their situation of being slaves of Allah, except that if they don't enter Islam, they will be disobedient and rebellious slaves and not obedient slaves. Allah subhanaw taala said very clearly in total guff well korilakkuma Nakamura become for mansha for human woman shaliach for in Denali, salimi Nana hatami humans Radhika, Allah subhanaw taala Zen and say to them, the truth is from my Arab, Khalid hopko Mira Beco, whoever wills let him believe, and whoever wills let him disbelief. Verily we have prepared for the Solomon for the transgressors for the oppressors

00:31:04--> 00:31:07

of fire, the walls of which will surround them.

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

Please understand, when you say I have the freedom to choose, this is one of the biggest confusions of the minds of people. They say we are free to choose, you know what that means? It means you're free to choose the consequences.

00:31:24--> 00:31:47

Please understand this, there is no choice free of consequences. So when you are saying I am free to choose, you're free to choose the consequences, so decide which consequences you want. Do you want the consequences are Mata Ki nalley hamata, tabellen yadava, lame will darnel mukalla dawn, Acquaviva Baraka wakasa me mine and so on and so on.

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

Or do you want to choose the consequences of

00:31:52--> 00:31:55

naran aha tabi hymns Radhika.

00:31:56--> 00:32:04

We have the freedom, absolute freedom to choose the consequences. So make your choice. Make your choice. My brothers and sisters.

00:32:05--> 00:32:09

When the Bonneville were expelled from Medina,

00:32:12--> 00:32:49

there were children of the Arabs of those who choose to stay with the minority. And this was because there was a superstition. The Arabs they used to have a higher rate of infant infant mortality fall and what reasons. So there was a there was a feeling and there was a superstition that if these children were sent to stay with the Yoda, who were the alama of the Jews that if they were sent to stay with them that they would survive and so there were a lot of children of the Arabs used to live with one another. So when the banana there when the one was and you know why they were expelled they tried to assassinate Nabil Salah Salam and they reneged on the treaty that they made so they

00:32:49--> 00:33:17

committed treason in any state in the world, including today. The punishment for treason is depth. But also Salah Salem did not pronounce that punishment even though that was his right to do that. He expelled them from Medina. So they were allowed to leave and they were allowed to leave with all their possessions. Nothing was taken from them. So at that time, these children of the Arabs were also going so the Arabs came from Jerusalem in this area. So what do we do with our children shall we hold them back?

00:33:18--> 00:33:26

And that is when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed law you can live hula hoop sunny la casa know Allah de la ecoffee de

00:33:27--> 00:33:43

katavi Anna Ross de la, Allah subhanaw taala revealed there is no compulsion in Deen. I'm saying this because among the among the many confusions that are there, today among the Muslims, especially among the educated, unemployed,

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

and that confusion is the core desire like Ravi did. So if I want to pray, pray, if I don't want to pray, I don't pray.

00:33:51--> 00:34:02

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, at least you have a choice. You have a choice. The choice is keep your mouth shut, and be thought to be a fool. or open your mouth and dispel all doubt.

00:34:04--> 00:34:12

Right, that's a choice. So keep if you don't, if you're ignorant, at least keep your mouth shut. I mean, maybe you look like you look like you're an alum. You know, like me, I only look like an alum.

00:34:15--> 00:34:45

So keep your mouth shut. The Ayah came for people to make a choice of whether they want to be in Islam or out of Islam. Like Ravi Deen is not an ayah for Muslims. It is an ayah for those people who are considering Should I enter Islam or should I not enter Islam and to them it is being told there is no compulsion on you. No one is going to chop your neck and nobody is going to shoot you or nobody's going to do anything to you. most welcome. You're free to accept Islam or to stay out of it.

00:34:47--> 00:34:52

But once you accept Islam, see what Allah Allah subhanaw taala c'est la vie de

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

la. Allah smart Allah said the difference between the right path and the wrong path has been made clear.

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

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily the right path has become distinct from the right from the wrong path. Both of them are had a narrow niche then you have been shown both the ways your choice, make your pick. And then Allah subhanaw taala said

00:35:19--> 00:35:28

for me yuck for bita booty what you mean Billa fucka this dumb Sokka boo, boo, lumpy sama Allah.

00:35:29--> 00:35:36

Allah subhanaw taala said, and the one who is believes in the false Hood Hood is believes in both

00:35:38--> 00:35:46

and believes in Allah. Verily that person has grasped the most trustworthy hand hold

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

that will never break.

00:35:50--> 00:36:00

So Allah see the image of the Quran see the way Allah subhanaw taala expressed this, Allah did not say he made the right choice. No, he said he has grasped the hand hold, whose hand is holding

00:36:01--> 00:36:09

which will never break which will never break. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to hold our hands until we are inside gender.

00:36:12--> 00:36:19

So make the choice consciously, consciously choose and say I want to be Muslim. Yes or no.

00:36:20--> 00:36:24

I want to be Muslim. Consciously make the choice. And then Allah subhanaw taala said

00:36:27--> 00:36:41

Allahu Allahu levena Mano Jojo mina salomaa Tila know? Allah said Allah is the Wali. Allah is the closest friend and confidant and supporter of the people who believe.

00:36:43--> 00:36:48

We want to become only Allah. Yes. But Allah is saying he is your Willie.

00:36:49--> 00:37:07

He here's your belly. Hello. Amano. And what is the sign of the wilayat of Allah subhanaw taala Allah says Allah extracts you from mineral Zulu Mattila no extracts you from the darkness into the light extract you from his guidance to guidance extract you from janam region as

well as in Nakuru and those who deny Alia omata vote then their Wali and their Alia are the are the things and the people that they used to believe in that are the false gods and the false goddesses and whatnot.

00:37:23--> 00:37:31

And what do you know who may not know Rila Zuma and they take them out from guidance into misguidance from Jenna into Gnar.

00:37:33--> 00:37:39

hula aka as habanero houfy Holly dawn and they will be their companions in the fire forever.

00:37:40--> 00:38:30

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from that and to enable us to live this life in a way that is pleasing to Him and which is a source of higher for us in this dunya will occur. inshallah we will complete this goodbye. And we'll continue with this whole by next Juma ask Allah subhanaw taala for his mercy and for his blessing for all of you here. Two things I want to say to you. One is please make dua for the for the forgiveness of the father of our dear friend and our dear nephew sad from Sudan, who is one of our sons who's here. His father passed away. So make dua May Allah subhanaw taala give him genital for those who La la la casa Alhamdulillah Allah has given him a good son. And

00:38:30--> 00:38:49

so his son is a source of Sokoto Giardia for image Allah. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive him and to save him from the depths of the grave. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enter him and keep making one of the companions of Allah, Allah, Allah, and to give him the judge in the gentleman, the lady is up. The other

00:38:50--> 00:39:12

good news is that we have another brother of ours who wants to take Shahada today, and inshallah, after the Salah is over. Those of you who are not in a hurry to leave a request to finish the Salah even sooner. And after that the brother will take Shahada inshallah, those of you who are not in a hurry to leave, come and witness that. It is a great Baraka and mercy of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:39:14--> 00:39:30

To be able to witness someone who takes Shahada who comes out from the doormat into the origin. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless these brothers, and to bless all of you and all your families and to accept all your advice, or serrulata bill curry while he was abused by Brahma to go What am I
