In Alhamdulillah, WA Salatu was Salam O Allah.

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

Allah Allah He was happy woman wala Baba

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

Today's the concluding installment of our

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

lecture, what is our brand and today is the last element of our brand.

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

And that last element of our brand is that we are a people with a purpose.

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

We are a people with a purpose.

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

My brothers and sisters,

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

this element of our brand is also the basis of love that Allah subhanho wa Taala differentiated us from the rest of mankind and called us hi Rama.

00:00:49--> 00:01:17

In the famous Ayat of surah Allah Moran Allah subhanho wa Taala said kwantung chromatin aqua regia leanness taumarunui Bella roofie, watan hona Neil moon kariba to me, una bella, which means you Muslims are the best of people's ever raised up for the benefit of mankind. And you enjoy an Alma roof, which is all that Islam has ordained, and you forbid, Al Moncure, which is all that Islam has forbidden. And you believe in Allah.

00:01:18--> 00:02:04

He Jalla Jalla Allah who told us the reason why he differentiated us and gave us this title of honor, because he gave us a job to be a source of benefit for all of mankind. Please listen carefully. Allah did not say who courageously muslimeen He did not say we have selected you as a source of benefit for the Muslims. He said, Oh, courage leanness, he said, we have selected you as a source of benefit for anass, which is all of humankind, wherever they may, they may exist. And that therefore, this is a measure of our love for all of humanity, that it is the purpose of our existence, that we should ceaselessly work to benefit them. The biggest benefit is to save them from

00:02:04--> 00:02:51

the Hellfire, where they will go if they die without Islam. Helping them consists of establishing a way of life on earth that guarantees freedom and dignity and honor for all people, a way of life that gives rights and privileges to people, and which guarantees their safety and security helping them consists of ensuring that they are introduced to their Creator and the message that he sent through his messengers alayhi wasallam and through his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my brothers and sisters, there is a universal law in this life. And that universal law is that privilege comes with territory. contribution defines territory, I will repeat that privilege

00:02:51--> 00:03:34

comes with territory, but contribution defines territory. How big is your territory depends on how big is your contribution, and how big is your territory will define how many privileges you have, how many privileges you have a district collector, a district administrator has a certain amount of privileges, because he administers one district, the prime minister of the country has higher privileges because he's responsible for the whole country, not for one district. So therefore privilege comes with territory, but contribution defines territory. My brothers and sisters, when we stop contributing, we lose the territory and the privilege that goes with it. You see this all

00:03:34--> 00:03:52

around us civilizations rise and fall on this basis. Those who are net contributors survive and grow as long as they can continue to contribute. When they change their status and become net consumers, they decline and die.

00:03:53--> 00:04:42

And they are replaced by those who contribute. Like all universal rules. This applies to everyone, including Muslims take the issue of language for example, ask why ask yourself why English language has become the global language and it took over from Arabic ask yourself what is the word in Arabic? Or or do for nanotechnology? What is the word for word for microwave oven? What is the word for word for telephone? What is the word for Aero engine? What is the word for internal combustion engine? What is the word for air pollution? I can go on ad infinitum, you do not have words. The words that you have are derivatives. The words you have are things that you have chopped up and joined together

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

to create a word with a meaning it is not an original word. You are taking the English word and you are translating it into ortho or Arabic. You're chopping up your ortho Arabic words and joining them together to create the meaning of that English word. The original word is in English. Why? Because that is the language of the people.

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

who contribute? Let us open our eyes. What is the good of talking about the fact that the origin of words in science and technology were taken from Arabic centuries ago, except as a lament for what happened to this oma, my brothers and sisters language belongs to those who contribute.

00:05:23--> 00:06:11

And those who own the language, own the debate, those who own the language on the dialogue, those who own the language, own the narrative, and that is our fate. And we and that is good news. Not bad news. Because if that is our fate, if that is how we got into this mess, we also can get out of this mess. And what is required for that, only one thing and that one thing is the four letter word, what is the four letter word? wi Ll, the will to get out? That's all that's required, the will to get out? Are you serious about this? Or are you among those who like to talk about this in your drawing rooms? Or in the in the wedding halls or somewhere and you go about what about what is happening to

00:06:11--> 00:06:19

the Muslim Ummah, and you say, brother would find a handle Illa all of this is true. What are you willing to do about that? No, no, no, not me. What can I do?

00:06:21--> 00:06:23

Decide for yourself, where you want to be.

00:06:24--> 00:07:06

My brothers and sisters, we need to learn to take from Allah and give to the people. always focus on your contribution, not on privilege and entitlement. As long as you contribute, privilege and entitlement will follow. You don't have to ask for them much less to struggle and fight. And if you stop contributing, then privilege and entitlement will not come. Even if you struggle and fight. One is related to the other in a relationship of cause and effect. If you want to benefit from the effect, you have to fulfill the cause. That is the universal law like gravity like thermodynamics, you ignore it at your own peril. My brothers and sisters, we can only give what we have. So how can

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

we invite towards Allah subhanho wa Taala when we are ourselves disconnected from Allah,

00:07:13--> 00:07:54

as this question, how can we invite towards Allah when we have no connection to Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala made this dunya and he made some fundamental laws to govern it. These laws don't change for anyone. One of those fundamental laws is you get what you make effort for, you get what you work for. So let us ask ourselves, what am I working for? I want each of you to ask this question to yourself, what are you working for? Remember, you can only lie to yourself, you can only fool yourself, because everyone else knows what you're really working for, if they simply look at your life. So ask yourself, What are you working for? And please remember that work is that which

00:07:54--> 00:07:58

can be measured, what cannot be measured, is not work.

00:08:00--> 00:08:45

In this dunya a person gets what he works for. And that is why there is such a premium in all cultures on hard work. People understand this principle very well, because they see its effect in their lives. Sure, we should work smart. But smart is not a substitute for hard as some of our motivational gurus would have us belief. Smart working merely means working hard in smart ways. Not working hard in Dumb ways. That's the only difference between small and smart and hard. But you know in Islam, we believe in magic. We believe that a man will somehow magically enter our hearts without working for it. Please understand, there is no magic magic is haram forget magic. Look at reality.

00:08:45--> 00:08:56

The reality is if we want to earn we have to work for it, whether it is dunya or whether it is accurate. If we want our image to be strengthened, we have to work on that

00:08:57--> 00:09:47

same fundamental principle that applies and that principle is you get what you make effort for a laserline Sani Illa masa, la Cala de la Allah and therefore ask ourselves how much effort Am I making to strengthen my Eman? My brothers and sisters in Surah Nisa, Allah subhanho wa Taala said yah, yah levena mano a mano. Allah said yeah, are you hola Xena mano a mano. He said oh you who believe Believe it or the words of the foreign if you say oh you who believe I already believe now what more is there to believe? But obviously there is more to believe Allah subhanho wa Taala is taking our attention from Iman as in talking about it to yaqeen as is in our Hulu as is in our

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

hearts. Yeah, you are Lavina Amano. Um, you know, my brothers and sisters, you also know that any ayat which begins with the Xena Amanullah DIRECT address of Allah Jalla Jalla Lu is

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

It is an order. It is an instruction to be obeyed. So when Allah subhanaw taala said yeah you Allah, Xena mano a mano. Let us ask ourselves what is this level of my Eman? Even our Mr. My brothers and sisters has become so weak that the dounia has overcome the Akira the concern for the thing which will be finished, has overcome the concern for the thing which is everlasting. The funny has become more important than the Bhakti eemaan has become so weak that as Bob have overcome Amal, and that is why amahl have become a burden. EMR has become so weak that our faith on things and means and material of this dunya has overcome our tawakkol Allah Allah how many of us do not even know the

00:10:45--> 00:10:52

meaning of tawakkol and have never tasted his sweet sweetness? What a miserable way to live in this world.

00:10:53--> 00:11:09

As the almasi at tawakkol lol as Bab we're sure to have faith in India as Bob is shocked how many of us are committing shark in our hearts because we have faith on the ASVAB. And we have no faith on the high level as

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

my brothers and sisters. Our human has become so weak that the revised and the custom and the practice and the so called traditions have overcome the sooner

00:11:23--> 00:12:05

we break the sooner we go against the sooner because we want to follow the rewires and the customs and the practice of this country and that country and this culture and that culture and we import into our lives things which are either openly and completely haram or these are things which certainly are not something which will give us any reward and the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salah is something that we like to stand and talk about on a platform, which we have called for jelsa Rasulullah alameen. Beyond that there is no value for the Sunnah. Please, these are the signs of hypocrisy. Be aware of them and run away from them. My brothers and sisters we mentioned and talk

00:12:05--> 00:12:36

about and what we mentioned and talk about and praise. Listen carefully. What we mentioned and talk about and praise becomes real. What we do not mention disappears. In the in one of the African tribes, I think it was a zoodles they used to have a system where when somebody was sentenced to death, for some crime, when someone was sentenced to death, they did not actually kill the person. Right? They didn't cut off his head or anything. They just ignored the person.

00:12:38--> 00:12:59

The whole tribe would just ignore the person if the person said Salaam they will not say while ikoma salam the person greeted them, they will not greet him. They would not they would not look at him. If he came in front of them, they would look away, they won't take his name, they would completely ignore him because they said he is dead. And they used to say that a week later, maybe three Four days later the man would actually die.

00:13:01--> 00:13:45

He would just die because he was ignored. ask ourselves what is the state in our hearts because in our modalities in our homes, there is no mention of the hype or of the promises of Allah. There is no mention of the era there is no mention of gender jahannam there is no mention of Amal which will take us to either place May Allah save us from jahannam there is no mention of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam there is no mention of the Messenger of Allah Jalla Jalla Jalla Allahu there is no mention of Allah subhanho wa Taala himself, except on ceremonial occasions. No wonder that the hands of Bollywood cars and clubs and Disney and McDonald's are more real to us

00:13:45--> 00:13:51

than Abu Bakar and Omar and sad and nebulous and highly demanded rallied around the Allahu anhu much by

00:13:53--> 00:14:15

my brothers and sisters Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah alayhi wa sallam said in the famous Hadith, the one who says Kali ma la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah with your class will enter Jannah the Sahaba is one who asked him, they said jasola what is the class of the kalama? He said the class of the kalama is that he did that it protects him from Haram, that it stops him from Haram.

00:14:16--> 00:14:20

So let us ask ourselves, the kalama that we claimed to have said,

00:14:21--> 00:14:22

Does it have your class in it?

00:14:23--> 00:14:40

According not to my criteria? This is not my fatwa. This is the Hadees of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Did Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam know what he was talking about? When he gave a criterion to measure the sincerity and ethos of the kalama? Do you think he knew what he was talking about?

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

You decide if you think he knew what he was talking about, then take your kalama and measure it and say in my life in the last one year, how many things have I done which I know to be wrong, just because of peer pressure? And this pressure and that pressure? I know it is wrong, but I still do it. And even though I know what is the right

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

thing to do, but I don't do that is this the last of my kalama? Ask yourself because a day will come when the melodica will come for you, and they will come for me. And that day The only thing which will save you is the class of the kalama. The only thing which will save you is the class of the kalama. Other than that, nothing else will save us.

00:15:23--> 00:16:07

My brothers and sisters, what kind of women do we have? Ask yourself this question, what kind of women do we have? Is this the kind of women with along with it, there is lying and cheating in the V bar, and dealing with interest and gambling and alcohol and fornication. Not only do these sins exist side by side with our claims about a man, but there is also no hatred in our hearts for these sins, and neither do we have the strength to save ourselves from these sins. What kind of human is this? Is this the man that Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam worked so hard to inculcate in his hava now do you see why our Why is not accepted? Because Allah subhanaw taala does not take anything

00:16:07--> 00:16:29

which is adulterated Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts only that which is pure. One person came and did Reba before me Salah Salem Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said you have not believed in the Quran, the man said Yasser Allah, I have believed in the Quran Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, the man who considers what the Quran made haram to be halal has not believed in the Quran.

00:16:30--> 00:16:57

One more criterion one more meter to test our Mr and our faith. My brothers and sisters, my job is to inform you and Allah Subhana Allah is witness and all of you are witness before his hours on the day of judgment that I have informed you that I do not mince any words when I speak to you. I don't try to be polite and nice. I say what needs to be said as powerfully and as clearly as I know how.

00:16:58--> 00:17:20

Beyond that it is not my responsibility. If you want to start your day every morning by destroying the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam on your face. That is your decision for which you will pay. If you want to have and have your weddings of your sons and daughters in ways which have been prohibited by Islam, that is your decision and you will pay.

00:17:22--> 00:17:50

Make no mistake about this. Make no mistake about this. If you want to leave your Salah, you know that I have told you a million times the result of that. You still want to leave it you will pay if you don't want to follow the outcome of Islam with regard to the hijab with regard to the clothing of the women and the men. You cannot tell Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of judgment that this man Jamar big was not clear.

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

You cannot say that.

00:17:55--> 00:18:11

Allah is with us and on the Day of Judgment, you will be witness whether you like it or not. Because Allah subhanaw taala said wanna do Allah for him? What you can Luna ID him Watashi wa Jalla homie makan Macario Cebu

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

yours will bear witness for what they heard from me, even if your tongue wants to tell a lie.

00:18:19--> 00:18:28

Make no mistake, time is running out. It is running out the most for me, I have this great sense that I will not be here very long.

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

And that is why I want to complete whatever I have to do and say what I have to say as clearly as possible, as powerfully as possible. Not worrying about whether you like me or not.

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

I say it because I love all of you.

00:18:47--> 00:19:05

Make no mistake. I don't hate you. I love you. That is why I say this. I don't have to stand here. I do not have to stand here. I am not any ma'am. I am not a chef. I am not an island. I am nothing. I don't have to stand here. There are people here who will give a hand and a leg, an arm and a leg in their head to come and stand here.

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

I get nothing out of standing here.

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

I will take nothing out of standing here and you'll notice very well.

00:19:16--> 00:19:27

Why do I do it? I do it only for one reason. And that reason is I don't want to stand before my Rob an answer. If he asked me, you knew but Did you inform

00:19:29--> 00:19:33

and I want to be able to say whatever I knew, I informed

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

but to make you do it is not my job. And that is why please understand very clearly that if we do what we know to be wrong, you will answer to Allah subhanaw taala without a doubt

00:19:47--> 00:19:53

and that is the reason why my brothers and sisters Allah subhanaw taala focused on developing this man.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

This is the training that he gela Allah gave to his Navy Mohammed Mustafa

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

Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:07--> 00:20:16

mentioned this surah and he taught his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the the tool and the secret of strengthening a man.

The famous Hadees about the as Baba knows all of this ayat of surah, Muzammil narrated by Ayesha Siddiqa lavon ha, she said that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the first 19 Ayat of the surah and then he did not reveal the 20th the last Ayah for one year

00:22:14--> 00:22:21

for 12 months, and she said that for 12 months Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam under Sahaba prayed as if it was for

00:22:23--> 00:22:28

everyday therapy it is happening. The tarbiyah is happening.

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

The Muslim

the chef,

and the student is Muhammad Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, and the students are his harbor is one Allahu Allah image mine.

00:22:47--> 00:23:03

And then after 12 months, when the lesson had been well learnt when the lesson had been practiced, and practiced and practiced, when the people had seen the beauty and the value of that effort. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the last Ayat of Surah

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

the last time that Allah subhanaw taala. Now Allah knows, believe me, well, I don't have actual data to support this but my heart tells me

00:24:35--> 00:24:41

but my heart tells me that those Sahaba who prayed the head youth for a whole year

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

without

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

leaving it, never left the head youth is the last breath left there was

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

a brother and sisters. Think about this, that if those people, those people who are blessed to be able to listen to the

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

Are we so to Mohammed Abdullah Saleh Ali was Abu Salah. They were blessed to listen to the Quran in the voice of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, those people who were blessed to pray Salam behind Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:15--> 00:25:26

if they had to make an effort for yaqeen to enter their hearts if they had to work hard on their EMR, imagine what you and I have to do.

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

Imagine what you and I have to do.

00:25:31--> 00:25:42

Stop fooling yourself. stop believing in magic. Magic is haram Eamonn will not come magically emaan will come in proportion to how much effort we are willing to put for it.

00:25:44--> 00:25:48

My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala told us the recipe

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

he taught us to ask for help

00:25:54--> 00:26:12

in every single record of our Salah, whether it is for the whether it is Nuffield whether it is soon any any Salah Allah subhanaw taala told us to ask and what did he say? He you know, serratos takim sirata la de nom de la la la la la mala Darlene?

00:26:14--> 00:26:21

Allah subhanaw taala asked us taught us how to ask me that. He said Oh Allah guide me to the past of steadfastness.

00:26:22--> 00:26:37

And then further clarification, whose path is this? This is the path of the ones you guided sirata Lizzie nantahala him part of the ones you guided part of the one on ones on whom you made your arm your blessings.

00:26:39--> 00:27:29

And so the person who makes this draw is in a Serato musta came he got he makes the desire to be guided to the path of steadfastness and whose path is that? That path is the path of Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned that in so many words, he said he has seen well Quran Al Hakim, in a column in a little more slowly in Allah sarathi masterpiece team. Allah subhanaw taala said to is never seen well or anila cave, Allah is taking an oath by the Koran. He said by my column by the Quran Al Hakim which is full of wisdom. It nacala Amina mursaleen, verily and truly and certainly you are among my messengers, you are among the Rasul

00:27:29--> 00:27:39

of Allah subhanho wa Taala you are one of the messengers of Allah, and Allah sirata Mr. Kane, and you are on the path of steadfastness

00:27:40--> 00:28:27

and what path did we ask to be guided to the path of steadfastness my brothers and sisters, as I mentioned, Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us to enter Islam fully where he said yeah, are you Allah Xena, Amano odo Hello facil Mika Walla, WA t shaitan. In the hula Komodo mubin. He said, Oh, believe again. And I have hokum all you who believe and into Islam fully and completely and do not follow the footsteps of shaitan And verily shaitan is an open and clear enemy to you. Now think about this. See the beauty of the Quran. We heard this ayah and we said yeah, Allah by Chiara Burrell, amin, Allah, we accept your home. We want to follow the home. Please tell us how to do that. So if we say

00:28:27--> 00:29:11

how must I enter into Islam fully and not follow the footsteps of shaitan? What did Allah say? Allah subhanho wa Taala said lacquered Ghana, Ghana FEA rasulillah. He has Anna Lima in Ghana yo yo la jolla mala Hara was a Corolla haka, Sera, Allah subhanaw taala said, Indeed you want to enter into Islam fully. So follow the way of my messenger Salallahu alaihe salam, indeed in the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have a good example. You have the best example to follow. And this is for whom for the one who hopes in the meeting with Allah. I mentioned this before, we only hope for something which is pleasant. Nobody hopes for jahannam we hope for Jana. Nobody hope

00:29:11--> 00:29:49

for Allah. We hope for nobody people are afraid if you if you have done things to enter the jahannam you are hoping or not hoping is not going to make any difference we will go there may Allah protect us from that. But the point is, no one will hope for that people hope only for the good. What is Allah saying? The one year jewel Ah ha, who has a hope to meet Allah? What does it say therefore about that person and his life? What kind of life must he or she have been leading? If they want to hope for the meeting with Allah? My brothers and sisters look at ourselves. Let us look at ourselves before it is too late. Well, I let us look at ourselves before it is too late. And then Allah

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

subhanaw taala said this is the best example for the one who hopes to meet with Allah and who hopes for the last day and remember Allah subhanho wa Taala much now

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

Brothers and sisters, there are two ways to guide. One is to give detailed instructions. And the other one is to send someone who knows the way and says simply follow him. Two ways to guide if somebody if you go to somebody the other day I went to a friend of mine his lives in a big upgrade, I didn't know his house. So he told me just come to this place and I will send a car and just follow the car. I said, just give me the directions No need, just follow the car. Now, just follow following someone who knows is a far more efficient and a far more sure way of reading of Li of reaching the correct destination. Because if someone gives me a map, it is possible that I can miss

00:30:40--> 00:31:00

read this map, I can miss interpret the map and I even having the map in my hand, I might still go go astray I might still go wrong. But if I'm following somebody who knows the way there is no way that I can go wrong. So we asked Allah Allah how must I enter into Islam fully? Allah subhanho wa Taala said live your life like the life of my prophets, Allah Allah, Allah.

00:31:01--> 00:31:37

Allah subhanaw taala chose this method of guiding. Please understand I've said this many times before Allah subhanho wa Taala was not constrained. Allah subhanaw taala didn't run out of words. Allah subhanho wa Taala was not writing his book subject to the approval of an editor somewhere, Allah subhanho wa Taala was not subjected to say you can only write 6000 sentences 6000 if you cannot do more than that, nothing of those sort. Allah subhanaw taala could have given this Quran in 500,000. If he wanted, he could have given detailed and very clear and specific instructions about every single thing to do with our lives. But he did not. But he did not.

00:31:38--> 00:32:01

Instead, he chose the much more powerful way. Instead he chose the much more sure way. And what was that way he sent the one who he taught, and he said just do what He tells you. Just follow him. Just follow Him and therefore he said gela Allah, Colin contento Hebron Allah hatami Ronnie you Habib como la la

00:32:02--> 00:32:48

la la hora him he said say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to the people. If you really love Allah, then follow me. Follow my Sunnah and Allah will love you and He will forgive your sins. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is most forgiving and most merciful. Our biggest need my brothers and sisters is for forgiveness. And Allah subhanho wa Taala promised that only to the one who follows the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, please understand there is no forgiveness promised for the one who does not follow the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam my brothers and sisters following or imitating Eva Eva is imitating it is not obedience. Either. It is obedience. It

00:32:49--> 00:32:57

is a step beyond obedience. It is higher than obedience. Obedience you do when someone gives you an order ETV will do just for the love of the person.

00:32:59--> 00:33:14

You want to walk like him talk like him look like him dressed like him where the brandy wears were the kind of shoes he wears, wear the kind of cap he wears and so on. Even when it doesn't even look nice on your stupid head. You will still wear it because Michael Jackson has to wear it, or Michael Jordan has to wear it.

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

So what about the Sundar Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam?

00:33:19--> 00:33:43

Why Why do you make false claims of loving Mohammed Salah Salim when his Sunnah is not visible from your face when the Sunnah is not visible from you from from your bodies. When as soon as not visible in your lives, when you soon is not visible in how you walk and talk and dress and how you live. Why do you make false claims? Are you not afraid of the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala when you stand and lie in the name of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:33:45--> 00:33:52

Are you not afraid you have become so fearless that you have no problem saying these things in Allah, Allah Raja

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

brothers and sisters I remind myself and you

00:33:59--> 00:34:12

that there is no guidance except the guidance of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the one who denies that has lied to himself and he has denied the Quran and he has exhibited Islam.

00:34:14--> 00:34:24

My brothers and sisters, now one of the ones who do all this and who love Allah, and who Allah subhanho wa Taala loves. See you see the beauty and majesty and grace of

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala said in Soraka nor Raja Allah told him

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

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

00:35:22--> 00:35:27

It's a it's a. This is not a statement of gender.

00:35:28--> 00:35:46

Rizal is not a man as in someone who is not a woman. Rizal is a person of honor a person of nobility. Allah subhanaw taala said Who is the Who are those people? Who told him the Jonathan voila by an anti gorilla.

00:35:47--> 00:36:17

These are the people who neither trade nor sale or business diverts them from the remembrance of Allah, na from establishing Salah, nor from giving Zakat, the fear a Day when heart when the heart and the eyes will be overturned from the horror of the torment of the Day of Resurrection. And then Allah subhanaw taala said, and that Allah subhanho wa Taala may reward them according to the best of their deeds.

00:36:18--> 00:36:42

Think about this, what does it mean? reward them according to the best of their deeds. What does this mean? This means that Allah subhanaw taala will take that one deed from your and my life, ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this interpretation, which I'm saying to be true, and to accept it and to grant this to us inshallah. It means Allah subhanho wa Taala will take that one action which he accepted,

00:36:43--> 00:36:47

and then he will give the same reward for every other date with it.

00:36:48--> 00:37:14

achieva maybe you made this one hedge with total and complete a class and Allah subhanaw taala gave you had your mob rule. He accepted this hedge. Now Allah subhanaw taala will take that one hedge and He will give the reward of that hedge for every Salah every pie was spent in soccer, every smile, you smile at a person, every truth you spoke, every single thing you did, will be rewarded according to the reward of that Hutch.

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

Hey, and then and then this is the majesty of the true king. The Allahu Alem Sal, this is the majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is not an accountant Allah does not count. So what does Allah say after saying all this, z the home for

00:37:39--> 00:37:43

Allah said that he will increase even more by his father, hey,

00:37:44--> 00:37:51

he will give all of this and then he said I am not bound by anybody. I am not even bound by my own generosity.

00:37:53--> 00:37:54

I will increase that.

00:37:55--> 00:37:58

even beyond that. Allah.

00:38:01--> 00:38:10

Allah subhanaw taala gives without counting. without counting, it is not becoming of the majesty of the king to count 20 gifts.

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

Kings don't count when they give.

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

banias count when they give.

00:38:17--> 00:38:22

Corn peas and Chettiars count when they give accountants count when they give.

00:38:23--> 00:38:32

My apologies to all the many Chartered Accountants who MC Allah doesn't count. Allah Subhana Allah gives behind ERISA.

00:38:33--> 00:38:44

Brothers and sisters, think about this. Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then he said, jell O Allah about those he loves the Hadees of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he said,

00:38:45--> 00:39:24

The RIDGID Babel hora de Allahu, if Allah loves the slave of his he calls jabril and says, I love so and so and therefore love him, and he shall Allah Allah said, so dubray loves him. And then he gibberella li Salam calls out in the heavens saying, Allah subhanho wa Taala love so and so therefore love him and the inhabitants of the heaven love him. And he gela Allah said that he sallallahu Sallam said, then acceptance is established for him on earth. And if Allah subhanaw taala hates a slave of his, the opposite of this happens, he calls gibreel Ali Salaam and says I hate so and so and therefore you hate him. And an announcement is made in the heavens and all the

00:39:24--> 00:39:50

inhabitants of the heavens hate and curse that person and hatred for that person is established on the face of the earth. May Allah May Allah give us COVID to see this in our lives, do you do you and I not know? Is it not true in our own lives? That there are people who are people of so called great status and substance in society, but when we talk about them, what do we see?

00:39:52--> 00:40:00

What do we see I do not repeat the kalama because of where I'm standing, when you look at our politicians, when the man when you look at the great primary

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

ministers and presidents. When the man goes, there are cars and motorcades and police escorts and police chase cars and gunmen and gun women and god knows what everyone chasing and surrounding them the person the whole traffic is stopped the entire city is blocked because this man wants to go from point A to point B but what do the people say about that person?

00:40:22--> 00:40:35

What do the people say about that person? And what do the people say about somebody Allah? May Allah subhanaw taala make all of us or Mongolia inshallah, somebody some quiet person is sitting in some corner somewhere the world comes to his feet.

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

The world comes to his face

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

marinara sauce.

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

I went to his

00:40:44--> 00:40:59

to his house, in, in Tokyo colon in raebareli. In up and he's caught him he was showing me the place. And he showed me there is a there is a hard wooden bed where he used to sit and a threadbare carpet.

00:41:01--> 00:41:04

And he told me smilingly, he said Indira Gandhi came to visit him

00:41:05--> 00:41:15

when she was at the peak of our power, peak of her power. She came to visit Marana she wanted to meet him. She tried to call him he said you want to meet me so you come I don't go I don't go.

00:41:17--> 00:41:32

So she came. And Martinez and this this person told me his resume said when we knew that she's going to come the next morning, so he said we brought out another carpet. We brought out a sheet to cover this threadbare carpet. He said Mara got very angry.

00:41:33--> 00:41:35

He said Nicola is a book was done by Joe Machado.

00:41:37--> 00:41:40

He said take up all this nonsense, why are you Why are you spreading all this?

00:41:42--> 00:41:44

If she comes, she will sit where everybody else sits.

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

No special arrangements will wait.

00:41:50--> 00:42:26

May Allah subhanaw taala ingenuitive among his Odia And may Allah fill his cover with nor and reward him from the best of the best in sha Allah. But these are the signs of the audio of Allah. I do not make a statement to say so and so was the value of Allah I do not know this. It is wrong to make such statements. I'm not making that statement. I'm just saying that these are signs of the ojala that for them in their eyes. There is no value for the pomp and splendor and glory of this dunya their value is only for what the obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters, let me end by teaching you a tool to for us to test our own connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala and

00:42:26--> 00:42:36

the tool is to look into our hearts is to look into our hearts when we are standing in salah and see what is going on. Is anything happening? Is anything happening at all?

00:42:38--> 00:43:06

If something is happening Alhamdulillah May Allah subhanaw taala make it happen May Allah increase it. But if nothing is happening, it's time for us to go into sudo and to weep tears before Allah subhanho wa Taala when nobody can see us because as I said a day will come a day will come when that time will be finished when the door will be closed. I want to end my brothers and sisters with the question that Allah subhanaw taala asked us in Surah Hadith the famous Ayah where Allah subhanaw taala said

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