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

Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah May Allah Allah Viva

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

La Mulana v Avada. Who Allah Almighty He will Akita Baba kitabi

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

abajo favela emunah shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem was the team come up Milt Sara Kala will as he

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

made he respected all ama elders and brothers.

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

We begin by praising Almighty Allah for many favors that Allah has bestowed upon us.

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

For verily, Allah says we're in town dounia mata la isla de su hub. If you try and count the favors of Allah you would be unable to do so.

00:00:54--> 00:01:05

And salutations and peace and blessings be upon our greatest benefactor. In this world, our beloved navia Kareem sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:06--> 00:01:17

respected elders and brothers. Today when we look around at the world, we do find that we as Muslims, we are in the midst of moral decay.

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

I don't need to elaborate on the type of trials and tribulations

00:01:23--> 00:01:32

and the fitna and the various difficulties Muslim have in complying with the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

We see on a daily basis

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

we are surrounded by nudity and shamelessness.

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

It is difficult to escape from it. Even if a person tries and if a person

00:01:51--> 00:02:04

keeps away from it he can keep away from driving on the roads which is littered with immoral pitches from time to time. The way someone says if you look up it's a problem you look down is a problem.

00:02:06--> 00:02:13

So we are we find these type of difficulties that nudity and shamelessness seems to be everywhere. Corruption is so rife.

00:02:14--> 00:02:21

It really May Allah make us marfin May Allah forgive us, it seems that we do not know of an existence, outside corruption.

00:02:22--> 00:02:35

We do not know of an existence outside corruption for us to think of doing something without corrupt practices seem to be in today's time, almost something that is impossible. It is not so but that's how we feel.

00:02:36--> 00:03:25

The seat is no more regarded to be an evil sometimes is regarded to be nowadays an art form. So if you have to deceive people, people take pride in that. And especially if you deceive and deceive people and in the process make money people take pride in it through the means of this method. I have been able to deceive people, yet not taking into account what navia Karim sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it said lay semi Nam and Hashanah. He is not from amongst us who deceives people. Anyone who deceives people he is not worthy of being from amongst the oma of nivia krimson allowance in one day w Kareem said Allah what he was selling went into the marketplaces. And a person was selling wheat.

00:03:25--> 00:03:36

So he had the wheat stacked on the table. And maybe a cream said Allahu alayhi wa sallam perceived something and maybe saw some put his hand at the bottom of the pile.

00:03:37--> 00:04:00

And we saw some put his hand at the bottom of the pile. And he saw that it was them it was not of good quality. Yet the top was of good quality. Sounds very familiar. So maybe a cream salad SLM immediately said Lisa minimun. Russia is not from amongst us who deceives people. But today we find the citizen art form. Muslims in many parts of the world today are

00:04:01--> 00:04:42

made the target of oppression. May Allah help all the Muslims who are in difficulty. May Allah tala make a way out of the difficulty and oppression wherever they are in the world. They don't need to go because just to make mention of those Muslim communities needs such a great amount of time, where Muslims are not so much in difficulty, they are the victims of their own problems. They are the victims of their own situation. So where there is a semblance of, you know, peace, Muslims, they are squabbling and fighting with one another. You know, someone said very beautifully that if you have one child, you are a parent. If you have two children, you become a referee. No, Hamid nature Allah.

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

So if he's a whole Muslim community without any type of, you know, different different types of the arguments that we have, we don't seem to have any other type of existence or any understanding of such an existence. So these are just some of the difficulties that have happened.

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

lighted and of course then we are also surrounded by such great amount of gadgets that take us away from the remembrance of Allah tala. It just seems that many times it became has become so difficult the way people will say it has become so difficult to comply with the commands of Allah and many times people, unfortunately and I will show why it is not correct to use that as a basis. But many times people say they are the info person aboard mosquito. He has become very very difficult to comply with the commands of Allah. It is become so difficult to comply with the deen of Allah. So many times our youngsters many times people say Chaka Mahal si the environment is such What do we do

00:05:45--> 00:06:29

we throw up our hands in our in our towards the heavens and say we can't we cannot do it. Or even if we do some aspects of Deen when we do get caught up with some things that are not correct, what do we say? How do we how do we explain it? Yeah, Kareem OSI, what do we do the environment is such our to to address this particular type of attitude that is prevalent not only in India, but throughout throughout the world. Three, we've got to keep in mind the the world has become a global village. The type of trials and tribulations that are in India the same from where I come from in South Africa, in South Africa, because you see the same type of programs on TV, you get the same type of

00:06:29--> 00:07:07

media. Today the world has become a global village and the type of issues the type of mindset, the type of attitudes that you get here are the very same that you will get in South Africa, UK, Canada, you know, these type of things, secular humanism, the aspect of materialism being rife is not something that is only confined to one corner of the globe it has become a global thing. Now, this particular type of some of the scenarios that I have outlined, how do we deal with it? Is it right for us to say because of these things, we cannot practice upon the deen of Allah. Let us look at this critically.

00:07:08--> 00:07:23

The first aspect brothers you and I we believe in a dean that has taught us that despondency is Kufa despondency is this belief in olaiya Swami Rama Illa Illa coffee rune

00:07:24--> 00:07:55

The only that disbeliever loses hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So for us to say that it is not possible that we can not comply with the commands of Allah is a part of a despondency, which in the words of the Holy Quran, is not that great of a Muslim of a believer, he can never ever say that it is not possible for me to do something because that is despondency which in the words of the Holy Quran is akin and close to this belief.

00:07:57--> 00:08:19

Sometimes situations might be like that, but you never know within every cloud is a silver lining may occur himself Scylla may say the final hire the Jade who look for something to be positive about you will find it look for something to be positive about you will find it you know there's a very interesting incident that is made mentioned in our new hire

00:08:20--> 00:09:01

a new hire a face smile imaginative Nicosia Rasul Allah makes mention of this incident that has an aura. Viola, as we are aware was one of the fierce opponents of Islam in the beginning stages of Islamic history. So one of the Sahaba The name is escapes me now. But his main name is mentioned in this history book was leaving Makkah because of the persecution of the people of Makkah, because of which was difficult to practice upon Islam, for only difficult now, it was difficult at that time also. So as he was leaving mockup, he stood at the station where he had to go, so he and his wife were there. Then he realized he forgot something. He went quickly to go and fit something. overpass

00:09:01--> 00:09:38

by his wife. And Omar said we are you going so the wife was angry and said, Oh, you will have made it difficult for us to practice Islam and to practice our religion in Makkah, we're living. So Omar said, may Allah protect you. May Allah protect you. So when the husband came back, the wife said, Do you know what happened? I sensed I sensed a softening of Omar towards Islam. I sensed a softening of Islam or softening of Omar towards Islam. He said, may Allah protect you? So such was

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

the fame of Omar being against Islam that the husband turned round and said, What are you talking of a softening towards Islam of humor? Maybe that donkey of Hata might accept Islam, the son of hottap cannot accept Islam. Within a week after that Maria de la can accept Islam

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

So we look at General situations we can become perturbed by that we have a faith. We have a human, we have a belief. So for us to take this view, keep in mind the question I asked at the beginning, keeping the environment in mind in our situation, given that it is not conducive to Islam, is it justified for us to use that as an excuse not to accept or not to practice upon Islam? The first point I made mentioned, and that is, keep in mind that it will never become despondent. The second point is, I think this is important point. Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:37--> 00:11:24

he's aware of each and everything that is to happen previously, subsequently Allah Allah is aware that just ask yourself the question, was Allah tala aware when he commanded something to us, that a time will come upon believers that they will be facing such an environment was a law we are not aware of it? They will not Allah is aware of it, why did I still give the command to this, stay away from this, to this re five times stay away from this evil. So if Allah is aware that this time and environment will come? And yet Allah Allah gives these type of commands, it means that it is possible for us to carry out the commands of Allah and to us to stay away from evil, for etc, if it

00:11:24--> 00:11:39

was not possible, Allah would not have given the commands because Allah Allah says in the Holy Quran, law you can live long enough sun Illa was aha I will never ever burden you with something that is beyond you to do.

00:11:41--> 00:11:45

Allah will never ever burden you with something that is beyond you to do.

00:11:46--> 00:12:08

So if Allah tala knowing that a condition like that will come upon us, and yet Allah Allah gives the command it means that it is possible for us to do it. One day a person came tomorrow to lolly, the very famous, you know, saintly person from India from your from your land. And he said that Mona, I can't get a forfeiture.

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

I can't get a forfeiture.

00:12:13--> 00:12:21

I can't get up. So Moeller gave a remarkable reply. He said, I take an oath that you are lying.

00:12:23--> 00:12:30

And then he gave it he said, if you could not get up for fudger Allah would not have made it compulsory.

00:12:32--> 00:12:44

If you can not get up for further I take an oath Allah would not have made it compulsory. Because Allah will never make something compulsory that you as a human being cannot do because it is a proclamation of Allah in the Holy Quran. Now you can live Allahu

00:12:46--> 00:13:09

Allah never ever imposes something upon the believer that he cannot do. So the fact that Allah tala knew that we, you know, we are going to pass through this and yet Allah Allah gave the command, it means it's possible for us to carry on, where do we come with this excuse that I cannot. I cannot obey Allah in this day and age, because the environment is like that.

00:13:10--> 00:13:54

The third thing? I'm just giving you an answer to the question, repeat let me answer the question because the question again, given the environment that is not conducive to Islam in today's time, Is it right for a Muslim to say it is difficult, and therefore justify, he's not complying with the commands and justify is not staying away from evil. The third thing, I do not know unless you can tell me of any ayat in the Holy Quran that Allah subhanho wa Taala has stipulated a time factor with regard to it. Have you ever seen that this particular is in this particular command of hermit of Riba, for example, the the hermit of interest for example, did Allah tala ever seen the Holy Quran

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

that this ayat is only in this verse is only

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

going to be effective for 1000 years, and after 1000 years, because of the environment that will come in, it will no longer be effective? Have you ever seen of an iron in the Holy Quran that came with a stipulation? We do have stipulations? I know in South Africa, for example, you walk into one of the very famous, you know, food outlets known as Woolworths, and you get their their particular item must be sold by this particular date. It comes with a time factor, if it is not sold, if it is not there, it's not supposed to be on the shelves. So do you ever see any any command of a locker as it came was it only effective for such period of time? So if it has not come that means the commands

00:14:40--> 00:14:46

of Allah subhanho wa Taala will always be effective, irrespective because there is no time stipulation.

00:14:47--> 00:14:57

And you see for us, many times we get these type of things and it is not something that is new. You find it in America in America you find in UK you find South Africa you find here, you will find from time to time people say

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

that

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

Islam has become backward, or Islam has become outdated or Islam needs a reformation president just think about this very carefully.

00:15:10--> 00:15:38

Only when a thing is dated, does it become outdated? Since when Islam is dated for it to be outdated? Let me repeat that. When people say Islam is outdated as them Since when is Islam dated, dated up till this period for it to be outdated. Another reason people who say Islam needs to be reformed, then you ask the question, you only reform something that is deformed.

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

You only reform something that is deformed Since when is Islam deform free to be reformed?

00:15:45--> 00:16:24

Islam hasn't come with a date. It hasn't come with a stipulation. It is effective it is for our benefit. It is for the benefit of the community till the Day of German people who do not practice upon it do so for their own detriment. And not to the detriment of the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada. Let me repeat that again. People who do not follow Islam do not harm Islam do not harm Allah tala in the least they do so to their own detriment. How many times we hear the hotkey, starting at the beginning of many foot bus, we Allah subhanaw taala says may use a law for contrition Miyajima for in the hula dororo illa nafsa Allah Shia

00:16:25--> 00:16:39

whoever this will be is Allah does not harm Allah in the least. He hums himself is a hadith of our beloved Nivea cream sauce lamb which appears in a Muslim, Libya Kareem sallahu alayhi wa sallam it said that

00:16:41--> 00:16:58

if the entire human being the entire creation of Allah, if each and every one of them becomes the most pious of people making such data for the rest of their life, it won't make one iota of difference of the greatness of Allah.

00:16:59--> 00:17:10

And if the entire creation of Allah become disobedient, they do not make such that one law, Allah it will not make one iota of difference to the greatness of Allah.

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

Allah is Massoud worthy of making sister to whether you make sister to him or not.

00:17:19--> 00:17:31

Allah is worth you have been worshipped, whether you worship him or not. Allah is great, not because you say he's great, because you say Allah, but Allah is Great whether you say it or not.

00:17:33--> 00:18:06

So the third aspect with regard to this answer, keep in mind that you're getting quiet time with a question I said, Is it right for us to use this example? And this argument that because the environment is not become conducive, therefore we got a leeway not to practice upon Islam? The third thing is he is it? Is Islam dated for it to be outdated? Did he come with a stipulation? Did he come with a date that is only effective for 1000 years and after 1400 years, it is no more fit? Can anyone show me any ayat of the Holy Quran that comes with this? The fourth thing where the respect of others is that

00:18:07--> 00:18:46

that when we look at this, the little bit of difficulty that we have in complying with the commands of Allah, yes, there might be certain type of difficulty when you do practice. People will call you a fundamentalist. So people will say this. A woman who is the niqab sometimes she will be taunted. And people will say she's a ninja Eliyahu Bella, I find no humor in that really. I mean people who call a woman, I can't understand this, this, this whole mentality. You know, when today a woman who wants to cover herself and wants to be a niqab even if some people don't agree with a niqab and civil niqab is not compulsory, only the hijab is not compulsory, but a woman who feels that she her

00:18:46--> 00:18:52

understanding of the Quran and Hadith is she wants to wear the niqab. And that is her understanding of the Holy Quran.

00:18:53--> 00:19:24

And if she wants to do that, what does it harm the society? And why do we kick up such a fuss and bother when we do not kick up a fuss and bother? When there are a woman who practically walk around the streets naked? Then we have no concern with regard to that we have no qualms with that we have no problems with that. We have no objection to that. But a woman wants to cover herself properly. We were caught with regard to it. We've got a problem with regard to it. And then we want to take out interpretation from the Quran and Hadith that is not compulsory, but that is her understanding what does it harm you.

00:19:25--> 00:19:51

But this is the mentality that has come with regard to say these people have difficulty. But let me tell you brothers, it pales into insignificance. This little bit of difficulty pales into insignificance compared to the difficulty the Sahaba crom with one who live in head when they had to proclaim the Islam in the beginning stages of Islam.

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

it pales into

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

insignificance.

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

Well, what is it when they leave you alone

00:20:02--> 00:20:55

Dressed his students, and said man, as Janice, who is the most brave of people, students rally, everyone knows you to be brave, you are brave. So he said I'm not brave previous aboubaker. And then he gave many examples. And one of the examples he gave was that there was a time when this courage got together, to strangle and to kill the prophet of Almighty Allah subhana wa Taala. And in the harem obably not be more pleased the intestines of the camel upon the back of me sauce room while he was in sister, and when Muslim got up and through the intestines away, then they started strangling him. We were weak, we couldn't protect the Navy of Allah. It was a worker, when he came to know

00:20:55--> 00:21:12

about this, who came running from far and he came and he protected me of Allah he got hit in in return. And he rebuked the people saying, attack to ruin our children, a lot of be Allah. Are you going to kill a person? Because he says Allah is my Lord.

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

Just because he says Allah is my lord Are you gonna kill him?

00:21:18--> 00:21:26

So at least said the one who is brave is a worker I'm not probably we were we were afraid at that time another worker went to the protect the profit of Almighty Allah for this

00:21:27--> 00:21:51

owner of the allow his time one day, all hubbub above was a very famous army who was persecuted in the beginning stages of Islam. And you know when the woman said in his time of Caliphate hubbub Show me your Becca herd you are tortured. So kebab said leave it Omar, why are you asking for me? So when when amirul mumineen insisted above took out his quota and he showed him his back, almost started weeping.

00:21:53--> 00:22:14

He said, I've never, ever seen a bet like that What happened to you above. So he said, when I accepted Islam, there was a fire that was created. And I was dragged across that fire and the fit that came out of my back that extinguished the fire. That is what you see the scars of that particular time.

00:22:16--> 00:22:38

There used to be a woman by the name of z Neeraj. We don't know that we know of all our actresses. z Neeraj was the woman who was a slave. And Omar was a slave girl, a woman she became a Muslim. And Homer used to beat her up so much, because she accepted Islam. And then afterwards when he used to get tired, he used to throw the whip down and said, I am not stopping because I got mercy upon you. I'm stopping because I'm tired.

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

I'm not stopping because I got mercy upon you. I'm stopping because I'm tired.

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

Brothers, I'm asking you.

00:22:46--> 00:22:51

Is anyone put through that type of difficulty years to come to read the father Salah?

00:22:52--> 00:23:19

Is anyone put through that time? We then do we have the excuse that I can practice upon Islam today in this day and age? Do we have the type of difficulty that they had in proclaiming Islam for us to use this particular type of argument that it is very difficult to accept Islam, very difficult to practice upon Islam, very difficult to stay away from the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala to stay away from the prohibitions of Allah subhanho wa Taala? Easy the right for us to use it as an excuse.

00:23:20--> 00:23:46

There is a fourth reason I think the fourth or the fifth reason I might have. So you know, how will it settle for so if I get wrong in accounting, which is correct me. But anyway, what I'm trying to say is that this is the situation well, how can we use this with when the Sahaba cram, we don't have to go through that and for us to use this puny type of excuses for not complying with the commands of Allah. Then let me give another example with regard. Remember that the question that I posed in the beginning,

00:23:47--> 00:24:25

Is it right for us to use the environment that we see around us, which we say is not conducive to accept or to practice or to stay away from prohibition? Is it right for us to use them? Let me give you another example. Yes. While the ease sometimes these type of challenges will lie it is in these trials and tribulations, within the seeds of challenges. Within within trials and tribulation lies the seed of greatness. Within trials and tribulation lies the seed of greatness. So look at this beautiful heavy than a resource limit segmanta masaka be soon nothing in the facade a woman

00:24:28--> 00:24:37

who ever stares remains steadfast upon the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala at a time when the most corrupt for him is that he would have won 100 shade.

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

So in that time, when it is difficult when people around you are not doing it, and you strive to do it, so it might be difficult maybe to a certain degree, not to the extent of what the Sahaba head as I explained, but in that lies the time for you to to come to the fore. There's a time for you to come in and reward. Let me start off Salim said he would remain steadfast

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

The sooner when people have forsaken it for me the reward of 100 Shaheed, you know the reward of one shahidi comes in handy. The Navy's awesome said that a time one drop of blood falls into the ground of a Shaheed before that Allah forgives the sin along the day of chiamato will tell a shade What do you want from me? What do you want from me? Instead what law you have granted me everything and allowances, ask of something instead of Allah the pleasure that I had in sacrificing my life for your cause. Let me go back and achieve that pleasure all the time.

00:25:31--> 00:25:57

Now person when when there is corruption, the minor person remains steadfast for you the reward of hundreds of people in what have you maybe a cream sauce limit set, a person who remains steadfast upon Dean when there is difficulty for him to comply with our commands of Dean okay hegira to lay the words in the Hadith user, he will get the reward of a person who makes the heat you're at from Makkah to Medina in my era,

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

a person whom who who finds this difficulty in comprion and he remains steadfast upon the commands of Allah, then he will get the reward of one who migrates from Mecca to Medina in my era.

00:26:13--> 00:26:33

So, this is this aspect and then lastly, let me say with regard There are many ways I can I can break this argument, which I have already given five or six. Another way with regard to It is Allah subhanho wa Taala demands from us steadfastness. Allah tala in the Holy Quran tells us what is the common is the comet is a very amazing, amazing quality.

00:26:35--> 00:27:15

One day, someone came to our beloved prophet saws limb and said Yasuda law, you are becoming old. We are seeing strands of white hair appearing upon your beard. And so Hannah law may or may we be sacrificed upon this Kuma despite all his weakness, it is that love for the prophet of Almighty Allah that no other no other Mathias shown such love to his prophet. We even know the amount of white hair the Prophet hit, more or less at the time of his death with you and I don't know even with with regard to our own fathers, and it's a reality. Right so Sava said he was 17 to 20 strands of white hair, the time of death. So the Kenyatta solo white haze appearing on your on your beard.

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

So there we are caught himself slim said Shivani hood, sort of hood is made me old

00:27:21--> 00:27:45

sort of hood has made me old before I come to the Iet which the resolves them according to the Allah was referring to let me refer to another another incident. A person came to me a cream sauce them and said, Yasser Allah, give me advice and make it very short. I don't have time to go for a very long, long talk, give a short, short advice. So Navy salesman told him coolamon to be less believe in Allah and then remain steadfast upon that till the day you die.

00:27:47--> 00:28:06

And then now coming back to the other incident, we saw some Sachi when he would hula went through Surah Hood. What is the ayah that Muslim was referring to that he said that sort of Buddha's made me old. According to many of Allah, it refers to the Iet, which I recited at the Hooda was the comma

00:28:07--> 00:28:37

remains steadfast upon which Allah has commanded you. It's a very short riot, but its implications are very great. And then we saw some ones who said coolamon to be Latham, Mr. Kim, I believe in Allah and then remain steadfast upon that till the day you die. What does it mean? It means for example, amongst other meanings, I will remain true to the firm beliefs of a lion is the soul, no new variations of Islam, but after Sofia Marina hada Molly Semenova Do we ever innovate something in this religion will not be accepted from him?

00:28:39--> 00:28:42

I will remain true on the morality of Islam.

00:28:43--> 00:29:07

For example, a young person he must keep this Easter comet in mind, I will not have any relationship with the opposite gender until it becomes hollow to the means of nica. I will remain steadfast upon that, irrespective of how people of my age all have relationship with the opposite gender.

00:29:08--> 00:29:19

I will remain steadfast upon it. I will remain steadfast in not taking interest even if people tell me the entire economy is interest driven. You can't stay away from it.

00:29:20--> 00:29:49

I will remain steadfast upon complying with a five times daily Sara even no matter how hectic life I lead. Now you understand why Nivea creme de la creme from sir Raman to be left Mr. minutolo Savi wanted one advice. Say I believe in Allah and remain steadfast upon that every day, irrespective of the circumstances. And another aspect with regard to it is that why never saw cillum said that this ayah was stopped him kilometers made me old.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

remains irrespective of the circumstances don't use circumstances as a means of you. Running away from your responsibility as a believer and one

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

believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:30:02--> 00:30:40

That is that is a situation we can use, have we been over the allow for the savvy who was taken captive by the Christian king of the time. And as he was there, you know, they tried to break him, they tried to make him leave Islam, he found him to be very steadfast. So then they use a very amazing thing, they've got a woman to try and seduce him to try and seduce him with regard to him. You know, if he becomes seduced and he does something that is wrong, he might be able to break any might be able to do as their own. So the woman who was appointed by the Christian rule as a time to seduce, Habibi over the lotto, went into his room because he was imprisoned in came back to tell the

00:30:40--> 00:30:57

king and said, Who do you send me to? Did you send me to a stone doesn't have any emotions refuses to be seduced. He didn't say that I'm away from my house for two months. I'm a hot blooded Arab youngster. Here's an opportunity for me to Fulfill my desires. He didn't say that.

00:30:58--> 00:31:16

What did he say? He said, No, I will not. And she came back to the king and saying, Who do you send me to see you send me to someone who's got a heart of stone doesn't have any emotion doesn't even look at me. And what is amazing the books of history max mentioned, she is the one impressed with the conduct of a baby boomer, who makes arrangement for him at night to free himself in hallway.

00:31:18--> 00:31:51

So we can use this as given five or six reasons with regard to this answering this question for people who say that the environment we live in is not very is very difficult, and therefore because of that, we have a leeway with regard to complying with commands and staying away from the prohibitions of law. There is no leeway. There's only one way for us to really keep this at the back of our mind. We have to do something we might be weak but we have to have this ambition that you want to do it. If you have an ambition inshallah, Allah tala will make an open up the waste, but if you start looking for excuses, you will never be able to come to the way at least say inshallah,

00:31:51--> 00:32:21

well I do believe that in this lies my my response will say inshallah, say semi now wattana never say something in our center, although we have heard and inshallah we will obey. And if there's going to be any weakness, that weakness will not be because of lack of ambition, that live witness will be because of human weakness. Maybe I'll let that I will forgive us, if you enable us to say, there is hope for a person who does something wrong out of human weakness, there is no hope for a person who does wrong out of arrogance. Who says I can't do it, we can

00:32:22--> 00:32:44

say, is no hope of reformation for that person. Your person says, inshallah we'll try. And then out of human weakness, I'm not justifying the human weakness, but at least the eastern stamp scope of reformation. And lastly, I would say that brothers, we can always be on the defensive. These are some of the things that I've said with regard to us, you know, the common refrain the common type of argument that you know what, Mashallah, yeah,

00:32:45--> 00:33:18

this is that, this have some of five or 16, that I've addressed that, but to say, you can't always be defensive. Because when you are going to be defensive all the time, we're only going to be defensive, what's going to happen is somewhere along the line, you are going to leak goals. Anyone knows that a football match. If you're always going to be defensive, somewhere along the line, no matter how defensive you are, they might slip in one or two goals. But if you all the time in the offensive, so if you the opposition scores one goal, you might have scored two goals, or even in cricket is always going to be defensive. We all know what happens somewhere along the line, you're

00:33:18--> 00:33:55

going to lose your weekend. Now, what I'm trying to say is these are the types of situations that I've addressed in terms of us, going away from this mindset that I can't do it. But on the other hand, we also need to be able to be assertive. I'm not talking of assertive in the form of being arrogant. And he's being assertive in terms of being confident of your teachings. In the view of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he practice Islam, it made such an impact not only upon the people who believed in him, even the people who do not believe in him. And you look at the history of Islam well as if you just find amazing, even the people who his enemies were turned around by his conduct,

00:33:56--> 00:34:12

or just turned around by his conduct. He changed people by his conduct, and will lie as he the beauty of Islam lies in its in its message in its conduct once witnessed, impossible to deny. Once witness impossible, one tasted impossible to reject.

00:34:13--> 00:34:32

So when maybe a cream saucer, wrote a letter to miraculous and a miraculous, you know, read that letter, he asked, Is there anyone here from his family that might be in this region? I was to fear and who was the leader of the Kurdish leader against Islam and Muslim the time was there. He was in Gaza. And Hercules was in Jerusalem,

00:34:33--> 00:35:00

rather to Jerusalem is a matter of 5050 kilometres. May Allah have mercy upon them. Those people are 50 kilometres from Jerusalem, haven't seen Jerusalem for their entire life. It is situation with regard to the people of Gaza on a day to day they might even be able to see the Dome of the Rock but they have never been able to visit it because of restrictions. So then he comes and he asks us, Sophia and Sophia gives him the properties. And he speaks about him and he said he teaches this and he teaches

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

That is such a good. So Hercules said, If what you are saying is true, this person is like what you are, I take an oath he is going to control the Zameen and the on the land upon which I stand upon. He did not even see the conduct of interview of Allah, He only heard about his message. And he said, he's going to be gone. He's going to come and conquer this land, the same miraculous, the same miraculous and maybe the next relapse in the time of Omar when Islam was gaining ascendancy. So miraculous then went down to go and, you know, to go and send someone to win, see why the Muslims are becoming so prosperous and so successful.

00:35:38--> 00:35:55

So the person when he saw the conduct of the Muslim when he came back, and will lie, he gave such a remarkable one sentence descriptions of the Muslims in the time of Omar in Medina, Sharif, what do you say? La? Yeah, that one.

00:35:57--> 00:36:09

The Muslims don't deceive anyone, they are not deceived by anyone. What did you say? They don't deceive anyone, they are not deceived by anyone. So herculez got up and said, well, that is the end of our empire.

00:36:10--> 00:36:49

People who got this quality, how can you actually how can you contend with him, so far, we know me and then we conclude with this. So one renomia after the Battle of you know, after the Battle of but step one, when omega was speaking to and where even you will have was discussing. And he said What is the use of living after Mohammed is defeated, or our defeated as in butter and kill many of our prominent people of Makkah. There is no joy in living, so many people are upset. If I did not have any children, and if I can ever have any debt, I would have gone to take revenge on behalf of the people of Makkah. So someone heard it, he said, Omar go, I will look after your children, I will

00:36:49--> 00:36:50

take care of all your debts.

00:36:51--> 00:37:28

CO and bring some joy to the people of Makkah after the defeat of the Battle of butter. So many people have poisoned dagger and he went in the presence of Nabi sallallahu sallam, he came in the presence of Navy saw slim with evil intention. And when he came into the presence, the results of asking why have you come he said I've come to free and bring rent some money to free some of my relatives. So, there we saw some said well Mary that is a situation what are you doing with a poison dagger hid hidden under your quota he was taken aback because no one knew about it. And then he was further taken aback when when the Navy of Allah said no matter what what what negotiations and what

00:37:28--> 00:37:31

did you agree with someone in harm?

00:37:32--> 00:37:34

said yeah, who told you this? He said

00:37:37--> 00:38:12

no one knew about it. Say mala informed me. Now many of you will have who was sent to assassinate the nephew of Allah based upon Beatlemania becomes a Muslim, after the conquest of Mecca safarnama who was such a such an enemy, such hostile person who sent someone to kill the nephew of Allah, and took care of all his responsibility runs and flees Makkah and marry me what was also his relatives who said jasola You know, I've accepted Islam, someone I feel is got some things still in him that is good. You give him protection till he comes in, see your conduct.

00:38:14--> 00:38:39

Give him protection till he comes in, see your conduct, perhaps you will change the nature of Allah said I've given you protection. So step one was known to be such a hostile person who Mercer jasola, who's going to believe in me, if I were to tell people that the Prophet of Allah is given protection to someone, that's the one who sent me with money and taken care of all my responsibility to kill you. So maybe you have a love brothers, it comes in the books I

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

gave it to Mel and so we're going give this to someone and tell someone to come and see

00:38:49--> 00:39:13

if anyone asked him that Where have you come? Tell him that the Prophet of Allah has given me protection? And if anyone disputes him, tell him to show them my turban. He gave his turban to someone who was who it sends someone to kill the Prophet of Allah. Principle when omega comes in see the prophet of Almighty Allah. He asked for some time when he sees the conduct of Nevis, Aslam, what can he do other than to accept Islam?

00:39:15--> 00:39:32

I normally tell people that three to a via a letter I said enough Metallica, Fatah, Medina, we granted to a great victory. Why was it a victory? It was a victory because up till that stage up till that stage, the people of Macau because of hostility did not see Islam in its true light.

00:39:34--> 00:39:48

And what does it miss me when there is hostility, people will never see Islam for what it is. hostility will blind them. Try your utmost not to have an atmosphere of hostility in your country because people won't be able to see Islam for what it is.

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

Don't allow us to let the intention to be on the on because then. So when when people saw the beauty of Islam for the first time, up till then there was hostility now there's a peace treaty.

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

So people came and see the Muslims in Medina what they saw was Subhana Allah. These are the people who grew up with us. But look at the life. Look at our life, seminars, Mancha, Faruk. And then they said that no, this is the beauty of Islam. And so many people accept that Islam in the two years between three to abiah. In the conquest of Makkah, that did not accept Islam in the preceding 18 years of prophethood. What that advantage with the saboten the apparently prejudice three to hood API into an advantage is within our grasp.

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

What is it the Islamic way of life?

00:40:37--> 00:41:01

That people of Makkah saw the Islamic way of life they turned, we have the Islamic way of life. We have people who around us were surrounding who do not have the Islamic way of life. Why can we turn what the Sahaba turn and apparently prejudice treaty into one of advantage? Why can we change our situation of disadvantage into advantage with the same weapon that they had? Let me give you a topic of understanding our

00:41:06--> 00:41:16

hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah. But I would say a great honor for me to introduce my dear friend, and to start,

00:41:17--> 00:42:09

Jeff, maulana Brian smile bomb, down workato, who is the Secretary General of the Jemez alumni of South Africa, when I came to India for to attend a seminar in America of the fifth Council. And he was very kind to come all the way from Derry to Hyderabad only to visit us. And I always thought it was the mega party. So therefore, we got him to speak to us. And if Allah Subhana, Allah bless him and reward him for this beautiful reminder. And for the very positive message that he I know. I mean, I've heard many of his talks, and that is his hallmark, when he speaks across the world have a very positive approach, as far as the dealer is concerned, and 100 law, I think it's a beautiful

00:42:09--> 00:42:11

reminder for us, may Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Give him the best of rewards, accept his journey, and make this on his scales on the Day of Judgment, and realize that it is his journey and accepted from him. My brothers and sisters, the key message that I take away is a message of great hope, and not a message of any kind of despair or despondency or sadness, because they remind us of

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

what we need to do remind us of the

00:42:43--> 00:43:24

responses responsibility of leadership are only given to people who aren't supposed to be leaders. I mean, nobody remind someone who is nobody remind sheep how to be tigers. I mean, if you're a sheep or sheep, the key thing is reminders given because that is our role. That is our job. We are the oma to Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And while I there is no bigger honor than that, and I'm sure all of you agree with me in that. And therefore that is why we are reminded if that was not the case, this reminder would not have been given to us. That is what I said. All we need to do is read read history and we know exactly how difficult our so called difficulties. It's a great mercy

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

of Allah subhanaw taala that, despite the fact that our difficulties today are nothing compared to what the Sahaba faced nothing even compared to what the people after the Sahaba face, amazing, amazing difficulties, can't even talk about them. And of course, I don't take more of your time now. But the point is that despite the fact that our difficulties are nothing compared to that the rewards of Allah subhanaw taala have not decreased. The reward for wellness or hotel has not decreased. I was aware that I said this is a little over isavuconazole Asahi hoon. Allah Verona, middle, Mahajan, avanzada What does he know Tara home base de la de la hora de los Muertos. He left

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

the door open for anyone who follows the sabarimala had a much made in in, in excellence that Allah Subhana Allah is pleased with them and they're pleased with Allah asked Allah subhanaw taala to gather all of us with the Sahaba exam like Allah image Mary and with Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam under the shade of his Ash on the Day of Judgment just as he has gathered us here today, all of those who are here and all of those who are not here because the shade of the ash of Allah subhanaw taala is not limited in this limitation of space here but not under the shade or of the manner that you ask Alice Mandela to include all of us to help us and once again on all your behalf.

00:44:35--> 00:44:45

I would like to thank modern Imam for his kindness to come here and to spend the time with us and to address us today. Well Salah Helena will carry while he was served with white

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

people the the issue of coming inside the masjid we don't want to squash the people in the mud. So I'll have the last spread out in the back from the subs here. But beyond that there is no need to stuff the budget with people. If there is space, there is space. There's been all the way into the parking lot.

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

Let people pray wherever they are praying Alhamdulillah whoever comes in early comes in early, there's no need to

00:45:05--> 00:45:11

put people to to inconvenience for that. And once it fills up enough, then maybe we will extend the masjid one day. Closer
