salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala ambia.
He was happy he made.
My dear brothers and sisters and elders, we continue with,
with our series of lectures on
the questions that we have to answer the questions of the grave.
And as I mentioned last week, the first condition of building the connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. The first question of the grave is mandra book. Who is your Rob?
And as I mentioned last week, who is your Rob is not a question which is asking for information.
It's a question which is asking about a relationship.
Who is Europe? The answer of it is Robbie Allah, my rub is Allah.
My Arab is Allah, you're not saying Allah, Allah mean? No, my Arab is Allah. Therefore mandra book is a question that relates to a relationship and that is the reason why we need to ask ourselves, what is that relationship with respect to myself? Do I have a relationship at all? And if I have a relationship, how healthy is that religion? Is it sick? Is it dead? Is it healthy? Is it alive? Well?
Because that is the question that we have to answer a question which relates to a relationship.
And therefore, it is very important for us to build that relationship. And we build his relationship, as I mentioned by three things. One is sugar, thanking Allah subhanaw taala gelato for all that we received from him. The second one is through obedience. And the third one is through edema of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallahu wa sallam.
We mentioned about Stoker last week.
And as I said that
that is the first condition of building the relationship. We cannot have or cannot claim to have a relationship with somebody with whom
to whom we are not grateful for what we receive.
The opposite of sugar is covert covert denial. Omar Guevara, Allah tell us what,
in Lucha de let him be aware that my mother is severe.
And therefore obviously,
if somebody is getting other from Allah subhanaw taala, he cannot claim to have a relationship with Allah subhanho that
we are all related. We all have a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of him being our Creator and him being the Owner of the Day of Judgment. I'm not talking about that I'm talking about the relationship of love of Allah Jalla gelato.
So sugar is the first condition and how do we demonstrate the sugar? How do we know that we have sugar? How do we prove to Allah subhanho wa Taala that we have sugar and that
proving that demonstration is through obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala this obedience is in gratitude.
is COVID cofra minyama or COVID, Allah subhana wa tada himself.
And therefore disobedience is to declare our ingratitude,
the opposite of sugar, by using what Allah subhana wa Taala gave us
against and in opposition to His will.
disobedience, Allah subhanaw taala gave us eyesight and if we deliberately see things which Allah subhanho wa Taala declared to be Haram. Then we are using the name of Allah, tala, the iSight to do something which Allah subhanaw taala privated and this is a demonstration of the Quran in Yama of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Nirvana of eyesight.
If we are thankful to Allah subhana wa Taala for the eyesight that he gave us, then it is our duty to use that eyesight only in ways and in places that he has permitted us knowing fully well that it does not make any difference to Allah subhanho wa Taala what we do with our eyes,
the benefit is for us only.
Similarly, Allah subhanaw taala gave us strength, he gave us wealth, he gave us influence, he gave us knowledge. He gave us speech he gave us
all every single thing that we have came to us
Allah subhanho wa Jalla Jalla I therefore remind myself when you let us take stock of this and decide, Is this true?
Let us do this. It sounds like a no brainer, but I think no brainers are
appropriate for people who have no brains.
I don't mean you all the people outside the machine?
Because how do you explain a Muslim? who accepts that he got everything from Allah? And then he uses it against the will of Allah? Yeah, this is not a sign of intelligence as far as I'm concerned.
So the no brainer is what it is to decide, did I get this from Allah only? Or did I get it from somewhere else? If you got it from somewhere else, then of course you have the will and you have the freedom to do whatever you want with it. Allah subhanaw taala has no right to question you because he did not give it to you. So when you start the war, Allah Subhana, Allah said, If he asks, and may or may Allah protect us from this, and if you stand before him, and if he asked, What did you do with your eyesight? Then you have a right to say Allah, don't ask me that question. You didn't give it to me, somebody else Give it to me, I used it whichever way I wanted. So this question is
Right, since something serious, I mean, this is this is what we are talking about. And the fact that you shake your head, meaning that you do not agree with this Alhamdulillah we got it from Allah. Therefore, Allah subhanho wa Taala has a right to question as about how we use it. And if we got it from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we want to thank Allah subhanaw taala for it, then we have to use it according to what he prescribed. Do you agree? Yes or no.
And this is true for everything, because we got everything from Allah, we breathe by his will, we think by his will. So while I just go into a hospital, just go. I mean, we hear these cases after cases after cases.
My brother works in America, he runs a very large health management service.
You got, you know, many, many doctors who work for him. And when he comes, he tells me all these great stories of various kinds of illnesses that people have.
And although it's very painful to listen to that I listen to them, because it's sort of a breath for me.
And it's amazing how somebody with a huge amount of knowledge, one thing goes wrong.
And a and what is the one thing is just the amount of sodium and potassium in his blood,
the salts in his blood, just that one thing goes wrong. And all that knowledge of that person, all that scholarly knowledge of that person becomes zero because he gets dementia.
He goes back.
Just one thing, I mean, physically, nothing is wrong with a man is just that the sodium and potassium in his blood
changed, the proportion changed, and he got dementia.
And then it doesn't end there. You take the person to the hospital.
And now they're giving him those sorts intravenously, sodium and potassium.
And if that intravenous injection of those salts is given to him,
and the speed at which that
liquid flows into his blood, if it is a little bit high.
Then the man goes, the patient goes into complete paralysis, total paralysis, he cannot even blink his eyelids
and at the same time, all his faculties are intact. He can feel he can hear he can think he can see. Now imagine
the plight of that person. He is lying in that bed, he can feel everything. He gets an itch his foot itches.
A mosquito bites him.
You get the point I'm making. He can not only can he not drive away the mosquito, he cannot even tell you to drive away the mosquito can do nothing he has to see he has to lie there. And he has to suffer that in
his faculties are intact. There's nothing wrong with it. He can understand he can listen he can his brain is working, his faculties are intact. He is suffering and he can do nothing about it. The nurses who are there they have to be conscious enough to look at him and say is his hand this way that way what happens? Otherwise, everything that happens to you and me and which we deal with without even thinking about it
and he can do nothing about it.
So, when we use these faculties and these strengths that Allah subhanaw taala has given us against his will let us ask ourselves this question, what if Allah subhanaw taala took away that
and then I told you just takes a pinch of salt
no great calamity has to come, lightning doesn't have to strike you or me. jewellery salon does not have to come and catch me or you by the throat, a pinch of salt, a
pinch of salt, I suggest keep this as a mental marker. You know, in psychology, we teach people how to get over different kinds of addictions and we say keep a mental marker. Keep a little acronym which will remind you of what you should be doing. I suggest you keep this acronym, a pinch of salt. Anytime that you are about to do something which Allah has privated remind yourself a pinch of salt insha Allah May Allah protect you from the
evil of that thing, which you were going to do because you thought of a pinch of salt. One pinch of salt more or one pinch of salt less in your blood gives you dementia, all the knowledge becomes zero.
My brothers and sisters obedience is the key to the treasures of Allah Jalla Jalla. Obedience is the essence of although the obedience is the principal characteristic of the obedience is the single most important sign that you and I trust, the one who gave the commands. You do not obey only those who do not trust, whose intentions you doubt, who you believe do not have your best interests at heart, and who you believe may cause you harm. Such people who do not obey and you should not be. You don't obey those who do who you don't respect. You do not obey those you do not respect.
You do not obey those who you do not consider worthy of being obeyed.
My brother and sister they asked you
and ask myself, is this what we believe about Allah subhana wa Taala that he is unworthy of respect, that he has our worst interests at heart, that he will harm us that we do not trust him that he is not trustworthy? jelajah laloux Now we live in delic Is this what we believe about Allah? Is this what we believe about Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam that he is untrustworthy, that he is not worthy of being respected that he is not worthy of being obeyed Is this our belief about Salah Salah
my question to you ask yourself this question once more one other another non brainer if we can simply answer these non brainers I believe we will be safe and sound and done inshallah.
Let us think and reflect don't leave mechanical lives like a like a robot, you know, twist the key and it runs around and on and on and the battery runs out and he dies.
Let us think let us reflect
do we trust Allah Subhana Allah and His him and his w Mohammed Salah Salah. Do we respect them? Do we consider them to be our well wishers or not? Then what's the problem with obeying them?
Allah subhanaw taala said this about his colleague Ibrahim Alayhi Salam who obeyed him completely and totally and Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in Surah Baqarah Allah will
either wala hora boo was elim call Aslam toliara Villa I mean when is Rob said to him Submit. He said I have submitted
is la la hora boo Aslam Allah Islam, no arguments. His lab said dude, he said I have done
make such that I made such no arguments, no questions, no delay.
Allah subhanaw taala gay like this
action so much that he gave it to us he put it in his column for us to read and to understand and to take as an example of how we should live our lives.
He was named Carlos Slim to
Allah then told him to leave his wife and newborn child in a barren Valley and go away. And he did that without asking any question.
And remember, this child was not any ordinary child.
He was not one among 20 children. He was the only child and that only child which he got at the age of 80 something years old.
After asking Allah subhanaw taala and making dua for a child for an heir to carry on the message of Islam
Gambia did not ask for as because they have properties to leave behind the property of the Gambia is held
his knowledge and he asked for this law and it gives him a child. And then Allah says, take the child and leave him in this place. Even Emily Salam is at that time in philosophy.
And he's being told to leave the child were
in what is today muck, Baron Valley.
What happens to a woman, single woman and a newborn baby what is logically what should happen to them if you take them and leave them in the middle of nowhere?
no water, no food, no habitation,
no cultivation? Not even a tree to sit under?
to shed from the sun?
What what is going to happen to somebody who would leave them there? They die, right?
What would you and I do? Apologize? Well, I mean, I think you know, even two serious questions.
What are the remedies?
He took them. He loved them. He left a small bag of leathers bag of water. He left a small bag of dates.
And he walked away.
He did not even explain to his wife what he was doing, or why he was doing it.
What did she do?
She has a question logical sentence of a logical question which any woman will ask in that situation? She said where are you going?
did not answer kept walking away. Then she's asked the question or the second question. First question logical natural question any woman will ask second question, the question of Amina.
Second question. The question of somebody who knows Allah,
who recognizes Allah?
What is the second question? Did your rubber order you to do this?
She didn't ask the second time. Where are you going? Why when she asked him once, why are you going where are you going? But he didn't answer second question comes from her you're cleaning her up?
Did your RAM order you to do this? Even MLS or not? Is it
and then her third response.
A third response was that she said go.
He said go.
She said if your Rabbi ordered you to do this,
then he will not allow us to perish.
we like to talk about that.
She demonstrated it
and Allah subhana wa tada like this so much. And then he liked her size, so much effort so much, that he made it eurocon Amara and hatch
the millions upon millions of people
to come after till the Day of Judgment or until Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps the Hajj including all the Gambia
including all the Olia.
Their own Amara does not happen. There has does not happen unless they imitate without reason.
Unless they imitate the actions of Hazara alayhis salam.
She had a reason for that action because she was looking to see if she can get some help. You climb the hill of Safa came down to the baby baby's crying, she ran from there and then she Glenda Hill Amara came down ran Allah subhanaw taala made this whole thing including the running
as Eva, she had a reason for doing it.
Allah subhanaw taala made her action, the reason for everybody else.
Imagine my brothers and sisters if Salah
when she was running,
if she had this knowledge that Allah is going to make this action iroko knowledge
that Allah is going to make the ambia do this, that he is going to make one of her descendants call Muhammad de la
sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, if she had the knowledge that Mohammed Salah Salah is going to do this, if she had the knowledge that 1000s and 1000s and millions of Muslims are going to do this, believe me, she would have run up and down those hills.
with a big smile on her face.
She would run up and down those hills with a big smile on her face.
I'm saying this because this is the son of Allah subhanaw taala. Sometimes when we do things for the sake of Allah, we question ourselves and we say why am I doing this?
Why am I doing this? What difference does it make?
who is listening?
It says the same thing again and again and again. Then you see the same stuff happening? What does it matter? Why should I do this?
And that is when you must remind yourself
that Allah subhanaw taala has his own ways
of taking something forward.
We don't know that.
So do what you must do for the pleasure of Allah Jalla Jalla alone.
And then if Allah subhanaw taala accepts that action, then he will make it happen.
Then he will take it forward.
Even Emily ceram walks away.
He goes over the hilltop and when he has reached a place where they cannot see him he turns around and he makes law
and he says I will show you
need to be Doria dB.
D in in
the UK masala
Amina zita Javi lay him was oh Amina Amara de la la
la la semana with Allah
Emily's Salah mich.
Allah says he made his way and he said oh,
I have made some of my people my offspring to dwell in an unbelievable Valley by your sacred house. And remember at that time, there is no house there.
In order our
see the sequence of what he is asking,
according to you and me, what is the first need of those people? What is the first need of hydrolase salam and abran is finally Salaam newborn baby what is their first need? safety.
If you are dead, you are dead.
Safety first need is safety. Second need is food.
Third need if possible worship Allah subhanaw taala Yes.
But when the NaVi is
the daughter of the NaVi is where he from Allah.
So see the order of what he's asking. He says all I have left them there by your
soul so that they may establish a solid
newborn baby's going to establish Salah.
So that they may establish Salah the reason for leaving them, number one reason so that they may establish the Hakama Allah Allah Allah Allah who on the face of the earth.
And then he says
So fill some hearts with love for them with respect for them.
What does it tell us? Love and Respect is an outcome of obedience to Allah.
Let them engage in actions which pleases you.
So that the effect of that is that the people will be pleased with them that the people will love them and they will be obedient to them. And then eventually Salama, this is the Shan of the dog the ambia
always say read the Quran and try to reflect on this.
The MBR never make dua keeping themselves and the conditions in mind they make drag keeping the glory and magnificence of alive by Ibrahim alayhis salam is making a dua in a barren Valley and he's not saying Allah Please give them a little bit of food.
Give them one dry piece of bread.
Give them a little bit of camel milk. No, he said all I give them from provide them with fruits, some
fruits, you know eliquid there is not even a blade of grass.
But the NaVi doesn't care.
The NaVi is asking the one who has no limit. So why must I make a dua with limits?
Well, I give because you can give,
give, because you can give, I don't care conditions, who cares? What conditions you are the creator of conditions, if you need conditions met the conditions, if the current conditions are not good change, you told me to ask you and I will ask you.
I don't care about conditions, what conditions what constraints
you don't go to a kink with constraints, you go to working because you have constraints. You go to the king because he has no constraints.
One of our Muslims may or
may Allah forgive him and forgive him his sins
and you shall
never leave I was in
and and that I used to live in Paloma
and a beggar came
and started light on right beneath his room, you know, under the balcony started
shouting and asking for something asking for money.
So not only once I got irritated and he came out on the balcony and said Jonathan, it was wonderful.
I'll translate it for the others. He's a job in
He said they go there's nothing in your destiny said that is why I came. I came because there is nothing in my destiny. He said give from your destiny.
What is what do you think he did? He went inside and covered him in gold. He threw a shell of his or you he threw a shell of his bags of gold on the man is in
dark dark, murky.
Heavy ask Allah the full heart is full of fear. When this happened with that have the
O Allah give them fruits
you go to Makkah there is no fruit you can find in muck.
Nowadays they build all these fancy hotels all around the cover. But when I first went in 1997 there are little shops all around.
And you could see all those fruits you know on the street on the pavement, every kind of
the middle of Saudi Arabia in the middle of the desert you find bananas and all sorts of stuff.
door slam continues 1000s of years later
I'm talking about obedience, unquestioning obedience and the
reserves there off.
So but MLS Allah makes this law.
Allah help them to establish Allah, Allah and I put them there so that they can establish Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala turn the hearts of people towards them. Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala give them the right them from foods so that they may make sugar
provide so that they may make sugar so that they may give thanks.
And you've gone
back to Philistine
and then he comes back
maybe seven, eight years later.
And Allah subhanaw taala describes that.
In the ayah
where Allah subhanaw taala commanded Ibrahim alayhi salam to sacrifice the sun.
Again, no explanations, sacrifice the son. He doesn't ask why.
Imagine he comes and then he has this question.
Was he with his son?
So I every time the first time I read desire it blew me away and every time I read this it blows me away It makes me think what kind of people are these?
My brothers and sisters something is very seriously wrong with our human while I am talking about myself seriously wrong with Auriemma How is it that the same people who said La la la la, la la la la la la la la
How is it that they had this EMR and they had this complete and total the octane which gave them so much power and so much courage?
Buy doesn't do that to us.
Allies the same law hasn't changed.
So whenever SLM comes in, he has this conversation remember, what's the conversation the conversation is between and 90 year old man
and he's eight or nine year old son Balala what the exact ages were but that's about what they oversee, read tells us tell us that this is about what they were.
And this son conversation that he's having with him is the first time we've actually seen I mean, when the baby was a newborn baby, you know, you can't say that when he saw him but the son obviously probably didn't even know who his father was. But now first time he meets his son This is a conversation is I
love this whole thing. He described his entire scene for us.
So put yourself when you heard that and put yourself in that situation. Put yourself in that situation live and see that stand on the side and watch this conversation happening.

The wages of obedience, Allah subhanaw taala said and when he the son was old enough to walk with him.
Is he talking about a teenager? Is he talking about a 20 year old 30 year old, old enough to walk means what? Just about started walking.
When his son was old enough to walk with him, he said Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said oh my son, I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, offering you in sacrifice to Allah. And then he said, fun.
I've mentioned this so many times. Panzer mazara. Again, the problem is they miss translate desire. They say look inside and what do you think but if a seller did not say what do you think Allah did not use those words a Mazda Tara? What do you see?
We use our brains when we are translating and visual or see, you know, since I can't see anything where it means think
See does not mean Think. Think means think. See mean? See?
Here is where I am a laser antenna Viola was 90 something years old asking, Is there a look inside your heart? What do you see?
What do you see? What must be the spiritual development of that child to be able to actually answer a question like that?
That he can actually see something. And he said what he saw, he saw my father, do what you have been commanded to do. Insha Allah you will find me among the savagery and you will find that I will have supper
and then Allah sir and then when they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah and he had laid him prostrate on his void, or on the side for slaughtering
Allah said we called out to Ibrahim alayhis salam.
Allah spoke to him during Allah did not say I said zebra No, we called out.
Allah spoke to him directly and Allah subhanaw taala say I called him I spoke to him.
We call that rewarded Allah Yeah, Rahim. Allah

What will you give for that? To have Allah subhanho wa Taala bear witness that you are his slave?
There is no honor greater than to be called Abdi, my slave.
ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to his obedience. ask Allah subhanaw taala to put power in our ask Allah subhana wa Taala to help us to understand that power in the door comes only and only from obedience to Allah, and from the theva Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to open our hearts to this knowledge, ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill your lives with Baraka to fill your life with nor to take away your difficulties because for them for him they are not difficult to fulfill every need of yours because for him that is not difficult to give you all that you desire with higher because for him it is not difficult. I asked
