Ilaha Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala ala VA mursaleen Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam de Sleeman, Kaziranga sera from mavado

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

mighty Bergen sisters,

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

a humbler, we are on the lessons from the life of Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam.

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

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to learn these lessons from those from the lives of those who Allah subhanho wa Taala sent, and who Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned as the examples that we should follow.

00:00:47--> 00:01:17

Islam came as a way of life to be practiced in our lifetimes, so that our lives, our environments, our families, our countries, the whole world, can become a beautiful place for everybody in it to live, not only Muslims, everyone, the purpose of Islam is to spread goodness around

00:01:18--> 00:01:30

the whole world. The purpose of the individual Muslim is to be a means of benefit for everyone in his or her environment. Not only Muslims, everyone,

00:01:31--> 00:01:42

as well as others system said the best stuff people hire Oh, my goodness, the best of people is the one who is the most beneficial for the people.

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

So I remind you, remind you of myself.

00:01:47--> 00:01:52

And that is the reason why we are doing these, all of these classes, actually

00:01:54--> 00:02:18

the lives of the ambia, leaving Islam, a flock of the Almighty, and wisdom from sort of man, the wisdom of the quantity set up. All the four classes that we do Monday through Thursday, are meant only for one reason. And that is to enable us to bring about the changes in our lives that that we need to bring about

00:02:20--> 00:02:25

in order to make our lives beneficial for all of humanity.

00:02:27--> 00:02:31

Now in the life of Abraham Ali salam, which we are looking at now,

00:02:33--> 00:02:50

I have mentioned the eight lessons that I have tried to extract from his life, not obviously, the actual lessons, the number of lessons is infinite. It's not only eight,

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

but we have to start somewhere. So this is where we are starting

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

to ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this

00:02:59--> 00:03:05

a means of beautifying our lives and making them very successful. inshallah.

00:03:06--> 00:03:15

I want to just list these eight lessons once more. The first one is concern for spiritual health.

00:03:16--> 00:03:37

The second one is to invite others to the truth to Islam. Number three is complete and total obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number four is to break the idols in the heart. Number five is to talk to Allah subhanho wa Taala to build a

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

relationship with Him.

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

And number six is Thorkil Allah.

00:03:45--> 00:04:24

And number seven is the bill hada. To be pleased not just to accept, but to be pleased with the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala with his will. And number eight is to do anything at all for the sake of Allah, meaning to do everything for the sake of Allah and to do anything that Allah wants us to do for his sake. And the reward of this was the hula was the closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala one of the primary signs of which is the acceptance of

00:04:27--> 00:04:32

today when we live in our Corona world, post Corona world

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

especially in the lockdowns and self quarantine and whatnot. One of the things that comes to mind and one of the things that is plaguing people today despite all our gadgetry and all our software and all our zooms and YouTube Live and whatnot is the issue of

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

Mental Health is the issue of loneliness is the issue of,

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

of isolation. Right?

00:05:13--> 00:05:25

So mental health issues is not the physical health. I mean, you know, today on a side note, but I think it's a very important side note, one of the things that we hear from people almost

00:05:27--> 00:05:32

the first thing out of the mouth, is the incidence of Corona cases.

00:05:33--> 00:05:40

So if you are in America, the first thing that people will tell you is do know what the what what what, I didn't know how many cases were.

00:05:42--> 00:05:47

were discovered in Florida yesterday in Florida had the highest court, it's almost like now, instead of

00:05:49--> 00:06:18

World Cup and Super Bowl, we have Corona, keeping the score. So you know, do you know what the score in? Do? You know, what is the number in Florida? You know, what's the number in California? Do you know? What's the number here on there? This place a 3000, desert had 4000 and whatnot. And I'm sure the same conversations are happening, irrespective of which country you are in the world. People are talking about the incidence of Corona, how many people have gone? Well, let me ask you this question, especially you as Muslims.

00:06:20--> 00:06:28

Have you thought? Or have you said, or have you thanked Allah, that you are not one among them?

00:06:30--> 00:06:47

Did you ever say that Alhamdulillah? There are, there may be so many cases in the world and May Allah cure them, or I am not one of them? Alhamdulillah I don't have it. Alhamdulillah my wife doesn't have Alhamdulillah my mother and father don't have hamdulillah my children don't have it under law, my husband doesn't have it.

00:06:50--> 00:07:16

Really, we need to ask ourselves this question and say, what does that tell me about my mental health? What does that tell me about my orientation in life? What does that tell me about my focus? Because when I'm given two situations, one, which is positive, I don't have Corona and the other one, which is negative, that Corona is spreading in the world, I look only at the negative.

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

What does that say about my mental health?

00:07:20--> 00:07:35

What does that say about my orientation towards life? What if I plot that on to a onto a graph a probability analysis, this probability will lead to what

00:07:36--> 00:07:55

Where else can it lead except to depression? Where else can it lead except to despair? Because if my constant focus is how many cases of Corona how many cases of Corona how many cases of cholera, I am going to psych myself into living in a state of such terror?

00:07:57--> 00:08:09

That the only thing which can happen is that I will become highly depressed and I will become highly morose and I will become highly, very unhappy. And if you look at yourself and say, why are you unhappy?

00:08:10--> 00:08:24

There is no reason. There is no reason anyone who's telling me that you are unhappy because your heart is so sad that so many people have Corona in Florida. I will tell you, you are a liar. You are a liar. Isla Marshall,

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

right.

00:08:30--> 00:08:39

Just going on round and round around. My mother used to tell me the story. When I was a little kid, she said that there was this king who

00:08:40--> 00:09:28

was going you know, he was on a on a pleasure cruise. So this beautiful ship and they were on this sunset cruise in the in the sea or in the bay or river or whatever it was. And among his quarters, who was with him on the ship was one guy who was he was like almost pathologically afraid of water. And why he came on the board Allah knows best but anyway, he was there. And he will moaning and groaning and he said, Oh my God, why am I here? Where are we here we are going to drown and look at this ship and human beings were not created to be able to float on water and this and he went on and on and on and on and on until the king heard this and he got sick of listening to this guy moaning

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

and groaning and grow and mourning. So he ordered he said tie a rope around his waist and throw him in the water and dragging behind the ship. So now this was done, right. This is the benefit of being a king, whatever you say, no matter how stupid it happens. So they tied a rope around his around his neck around his waist and they Chuck to the side. And now this guy is going in and out in and out like a cork is bobbing. And he's being dragged behind the board. He drank lots and lots of water and

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

Then after a little while, the king said, you're pulling back out, you know, pump him out of the water out of him. And after that the man was absolutely silent, not a sound out to him. After that, the reason being that he realized what it actually means to drown, he didn't drown. They didn't kill him. But he almost got there. So he realized that when I'm sitting in the board, I'm in a very happy situation. And I've got no business to moan and groan and complain, and obviously, I'm sure he was afraid that the king would probably throw him out, throw him overboard next time without a rope. But anyway, the point I'm making is that here we are sitting with this corner, and constantly was in

00:10:38--> 00:11:14

Corona, Corona Corona, la hora de La Villa. Don't put it to a point where Allah subhanaw taala gets tired of it and says, Okay, let me give him a little bit. Let him let him taste what it actually feels. And then, and then we'll see how much he complains, let's not do that. Let's make sure that we tanglers monitors Al hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil aalameen era, cure them, whoever is has it, cure them, you know, help them to help them to become better and come home safe and sound if they are hospital and Alhamdulillah Arab you kept me free from it. And I thank you and

00:11:15--> 00:11:57

I thank you that you kept me free from this. Because think about this, you know, this whole fear of Corona what is the fear of fear of death? Right? Why afraid of death? Because you are told by your Nabi and minorly sallallahu wasallam that debt is inevitable. Allah subhanaw taala told us that is inevitable the Quran has several if not one, that that is inevitable that it can come it will come no matter where you are hiding in which fort in which you know behind which screen doesn't matter. You will die one day the the angel has been has been set upon you and He will bring your souls to Allah subhanho wa Taala all of this. None of this is News. We know this as Muslims, we know this.

00:11:59--> 00:12:12

However, you tell us lm said do not even believe that when you say salam aleikum, wa Taala in Salah that you will be able to complete the second salat wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah on the other shoulder don't even believe that

00:12:13--> 00:12:43

could be a nice way to go. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah new day without kudzu still in Salah in Uganda. But I'm saying that we know all of this. So what's this sudden fear? Seriously, examine your own email, I find myself if I am in that situation, I must examine my own email. And I was asked myself really do I have you but do I really believe that I'm going to die so why if I'm if I believe that I'm going to die and I can die anytime, they let me focus on what happens after death,

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

not on this, this is just shows a fear of death and fear of death is a sign of the weakness of human

00:12:53--> 00:13:31

right, let us look at what happens after death. Death is going to happen whether it's Corona or no Corona, it is going to come. By all means take precautions, it is very stupid not to take precautions. And as I mentioned before, the purpose of a Muslim is to be beneficial to others. So it is not your purpose to infect other people. If you are an asymptomatic carrier, and you don't wear a mask, and you are out in public and you then you are potentially you might spread infection to other people and this is in Islam. This is haram in Islam, this is prohibited in Islam, this is bad for you form the perspective of the religion,

00:13:32--> 00:13:46

a Muslim must wear a mask in order to protect himself and others because the protection of human life is the number one consideration in Islamic law.

00:13:48--> 00:14:03

So, not protecting not wearing masks and not taking precautions is bad in the religion itself. But that having been said there is no need to live in a state of terror.

00:14:04--> 00:14:09

Now this is the issue of being concerned about your spiritual

00:14:10--> 00:14:23

health. spiritual health is this is what is my my connection with Allah subhanaw taala. Today, we are we talk about our you know, we talk about

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

our physical health and everybody is very concerned people are everyone is on some kind of diet or they are trying to lose weight. We are worried about cardiac disease.

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

cardiac disease, what is cardiac disease? What is cardiac disease?

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

Allah subhanaw taala told us what is cardiac disease? What Allah said how will show you Tanya rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim Amina sibaya cola man will he will be Leo Mila fury Rama

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Boom, boom, Mini. Johar. The owner Allah Allah Dena mano

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

Trudeau he coleauxv him.

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

fossa whom Allah Omar Allah. Allah Hamada buena de mommy maka, vivo.

00:15:25--> 00:15:35

Allah surrounded, that is it and among the people that are those who say we believe in Allah and we believe in the day of judgment on the last day, but they are not momineen they are not believers.

00:15:38--> 00:15:53

They are trying to fool Allah subhanaw taala and the believers now the villa, but the fool nobody except themselves and in their heart is a disease. Allah is talking about cardiac illness, but from a different perspective.

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

Ask yourself which cardiac illness are we worried about?

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

The physical cardiac illness of the pump

00:16:03--> 00:16:06

or the spiritual cardiac illness of the color.

00:16:10--> 00:16:23

The color when Islam is a very beautiful and unique concept, the color is the combination of emotion and intellect. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the color with understanding.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

He didn't mention it with pumping blood

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

abasa

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

talked about the cult of EDA.

00:16:38--> 00:16:41

So LSA V over him marovo

00:16:42--> 00:16:47

in their hearts, meaning their spiritual heart.

00:16:48--> 00:17:01

There is a disease. What is a disease? a disease is the disease or lying of cheating of nifa Coffee bagasse ficolo b moroccon. fissara. Houma la mavala will increase this disease.

00:17:02--> 00:17:20

Allah does not cure liars liars have to cure themselves. They have to make Toba they have to make a step far and return to Allah subhanho wa Taala or facade Oh, la la la, la la Houma La La MaMa, can we have the bone and for them there is a grievous punishment because they were liars.

00:17:22--> 00:17:26

spiritual health. Today, we have to ask ourselves,

00:17:28--> 00:17:31

we talk about physical health, and we should

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

we talk about maintaining physical health and we should we talk about eating the right foods and we talk about taking the right exercise. But in eating the right foods we talk about calorific value. We talk about carbs, we talk about proteins, we talk about sugar.

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

We talk about hyla.

00:17:54--> 00:18:14

That's also eating right, as part of eating. We also talk about halon. Do we also talk about Serbia? Do we also talk about eating something which has been slaughtered without the name of Allah subhanaw taala being recited in that slaughter in the process of their slaughter? Yes, I know all the photos

00:18:15--> 00:18:29

of how this is permissible and that is permissible and no and I know all the Allah who gives us fatwas, may Allah bless them and May Allah forgive them I'm fine with them. I am saying what prevents you from being extra careful.

00:18:31--> 00:18:43

And saying that I will only eat where all those boxes are ticked. Even though if one or two of the boxes are left unticked there is this alum somewhere who gave the fatwa to say it is okay.

00:18:45--> 00:18:49

There is this one who took a delille even if you took the delille from

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

the Sierra and the Sunnah and the Hadith.

00:18:54--> 00:19:00

At the end of the day, he is extrapolating and he is interpreting that daleel in today's context

00:19:04--> 00:19:29

and then he is giving a fatwa to say it is permissible no problem I'm not arguing with you I'm just saying you as an individual you it is your mouth which it with that stuff is going into you start his mouth. Before you put that stuff in your mouth. Did you ask yourself a question that will I die if I don't eat this chicken? Will I die if I don't eat this thing? Which is doubtful? Will I die if I don't eat drink this stuff? in which there is a secret formula?

00:19:32--> 00:19:34

You will not die? Then why do we do it?

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

Why do you eat it?

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

What does it tell you?

00:19:40--> 00:19:45

What does that tell you about your concern for your spiritual well being?

00:19:48--> 00:19:57

Right? Ask yourself this question. I'm not talking about the actual boundary to zigzag boundary Am I am I crossing it or not crossing? No. I'm saying Why are you even near that boundary?

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

Where is the love for Allah?

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

avanos energy atom, even if there is any doubt in this whole thing, even if there is a slight assemblance of doubt, I don't want to go here.

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

After all, I'm not gonna die.

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

What happens if you don't need that you can one day?

00:20:19--> 00:20:19

Ask us.

00:20:21--> 00:20:28

So here is the issue of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and his concern for spiritual health.

00:20:31--> 00:20:41

And what did he do? He brahma ceram struggled against superstition and against polytheism.

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

Right

00:20:47--> 00:20:49

now as I'm talking to you, it

00:20:51--> 00:21:02

is starting to rain I'm not, I'm not sure that's such a great idea to continue to talk to you while it rains, but let me do it until it actually starts to come down okay.

00:21:05--> 00:21:06

So he,

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

struggling is this he lived in a society he lived

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

in a society which was polytheistic, which worshipped idols.

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

And this has been going on for a long time. And this is being from you know, from the

00:21:25--> 00:21:39

the Greeks were the first ones that we know about. But it has been going on for so long before that, after all, live didn't begin when history was history started to be recorded or written. Live began long before that, and

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

life has been going on for long before that.

00:21:43--> 00:22:00

So people have been worshipping idols, Allah subhanaw, taala, sent Nabil after NaVi, after an OBE who came in all of them came with the same brief, which is to move people away from the worship of creatures to the worship of the Creator.

00:22:02--> 00:22:09

In one line, that's what Islam is all about, to move from the worship of creatures to the worship of the Creator.

00:22:11--> 00:22:35

And this is what Islam came for. This is what Allah subhanaw taala sent nebby after NaVi after NaVi to do, and hamdulillah the MBR did their job, but then people are people so once a Nabil had passed away, Some time passed, and then people brought in different logic different so called logic,

00:22:36--> 00:22:44

different superstitions and so on and so forth. That is the reason why there is in Islam there is such a big issue about be that

00:22:46--> 00:22:50

about things which are innovations Indeed, the first and foremost Let me

00:22:51--> 00:22:55

explain this word which is which causes a lot of confusion.

00:22:56--> 00:23:33

Be that sometimes people say Oh, so you know wearing glasses, or riding in a car is a bitter because I didn't ride in a car. Please understand that the the meaning of the word with a Buddha is innovation or new doesn't mean new everything. It means introducing something new into worship, introducing something new into the religion. Now what is worship, worship is any action that is done with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and of receiving the reward from Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:34--> 00:24:03

so when you are sitting in the car, you are sitting there saying Allah will you please with me and Allah will reward me for sitting in the car to go from point A to point B to drive a car. Now obviously people who are so connected with Allah subhanaw taala and I remind myself and you let us become people like that, they will actually make a conscious Nia to please Allah subhanho wa Taala in every single thing that they do whatever it is,

00:24:05--> 00:24:16

right, whatever it is, and this is the beauty of of the of the Nia, of being conscious of the Nia, as, for example the in the opening in the makishima of

00:24:18--> 00:24:29

Raja Salah he in the book of Rama now you're on to lolly he described this Nia so beautifully, he said Alice ourania fee equally,

00:24:30--> 00:24:38

equally Mr. Murphy equally ahal alboreto to well Javi. He said the awareness is higher the

00:24:39--> 00:25:00

the the consciousness of the Nia of the intention in all that we say in all that we do and in all the situations that we find ourselves in life, whether this is hidden or whether this is visible our bodies are to one coffee whether it is visible or whether it is hidden

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

Now this is the beautiful description of the Nia mela bring us to that point where we can live our entire life where before we say anything do anything

00:25:11--> 00:25:19

or react to any situation that we are in we ask will this please Allah subhanho wa Taala Why am I doing this?

00:25:21--> 00:25:32

And then I do it only if I if it pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala and I do not do it If it does not, please Allah subhanho wa Taala let us try to reach that place inshallah We ask Allah to make it easy for us.

00:25:33--> 00:25:54

But I'm saying that basically speaking, Buddha doesn't refer to your and my day to day, things that we do in our lives, in the, in the, our activities of our life, they refer it to be that the word term without the technical term be that refers to

00:25:56--> 00:26:07

innovating refers to introducing something new into the practice of religion meaning, especially into a bar that especially into

00:26:09--> 00:26:17

those things, where we expect a reward from Allah subhanaw taala. So any action for example, if I'm feeding

00:26:18--> 00:26:53

people who are in need of food, Now why am I doing that I'm doing it because this is a good deed because Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with it. And I asked Allah subhanaw taala to reward me for my charity, right? So this is an action off which is a part of religion, it becomes an action arriba and inshallah Allah will reward me for it. Now in that action supposing when I'm feeding the people, I'm in America I'm feeding a whole lot of homeless people most of what most of them are all of them are not Muslim. And I decided to give them these hamburgers

00:26:54--> 00:27:40

right which have pork in them and I decided to give them you know, a can of beer each. Now does that amount to a deed which is commendable, which is going to give me reward? No, because I am violating the principle of Islam in my charity, now by excuse to say that Oh, by you know, they eat it anyway. That doesn't matter whether they eat it anyway or not, it doesn't matter whether you are doing it, whether they are eating it, because of you, that is what matters, right? Similarly, people talk about celebrating this or this day or that day, you know, celebrating birthdays, celebrating death anniversaries. So we say to them the same thing, which is that why are you celebrating that

00:27:40--> 00:28:23

birthday? Why are you celebrating that death anniversary? Well, because I think it's a good thing to do, because I want Allah subhanaw taala to reward me, because I think it is something which is rewarding for the person whose birth or death anniversary am celebrating. Now that action therefore becomes an action of about now, in such cases, the thing to do is to check whether So Allah is Allah, Allah Salam did that or not? Because in Islam, the in the Sharia, the basic fundamental principle is, in a bar that in matters of Deen in a bar, that everything is haram, everything is prohibited, except what Allah subhanho wa Taala permitted, which is what Rasulullah sallallahu did.

00:28:24--> 00:28:36

And in matters of dunya and matters of our ordinary life, everything is permissible, except what also lies on a certain prohibited Amata Kumara Sulu manakamana

00:28:38--> 00:28:41

what the hola in the larger Allah subhanaw taala

00:28:42--> 00:28:46

whatever mind Abby gives you take it, whatever he stops you from stop

00:28:48--> 00:29:26

and fear, the fear the displeasure of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala severen punishment Allah wanders, whatever he says, and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, Whatever I tell you, whatever I stop you from stop from that immediately. And whatever I allow you to do I tell you to do do that to the best of your ability. This is the urashima of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where they didn't hold us. They didn't say whatever I tell you to do, do that to a level of excellence that we should do that nobody denies that. But there, they gave us a little bit of

00:29:27--> 00:29:41

leeway. And they said, do it to the best of your ability. But whatever you are told to stop from immediately stop. Don't do it. Right. Do not do it because this is something which is harmful for you. Don't do that. So in the context of

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

Buddha, this is how these things come. Why did we bring up this whole topic of Buddha because this visit Allah subhanaw taala sends me Allah musala Allah sends His prophets and his messengers, and after they pass away, people, go and start worshipping idols.

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

Or they bring in things into the religion. One of the most common ones is that they start worshipping or they start in the it starts from the concept of honoring the Nabhi himself. Right? So here is the V degussa landscape absolutely you know brilliant case to a to illustrate and then you can see where all it applies with with who all it applies. I don't have to give you a list of names, you know all the names. Now take easily Salah

00:30:33--> 00:30:51

where did it start from? It started from Orissa. Salaam is such a fabulous human being he was such a beautiful person. He was so kind and he was so wonderful. I love his early setup so much.

00:30:53--> 00:31:02

Right? And until, until this point, everything is fine. No problem. hamdulillah we should love it. He is he was the most beautiful person. He was the most

00:31:03--> 00:31:11

pious person he was the most lovable of all human beings of all human beings. Remember the name? human beings.

00:31:13--> 00:31:23

That's where the problem starts. And then we say Oh, but you know, he was so beautiful. I mean, do you know any human being like that? No, that means he was not human. He was the Son of God, that was Bella.

00:31:26--> 00:32:11

So that's where the connection and of course the you know, the whole story of Constantine. And now Constantine created this divinity and created the whole concept of the Trinity and so on and so forth. I'm not going into all that. I'm just saying that this is where it start from here was a person who was beautiful, wonderful, well worthy of your love and well worthy of you the honor that you want to give him or her. But then you exceed you go beyond that. You do what is called holo. you exceed in that and you convert that person into a into a deity. Now again, you from from day one, you're not worshiping day one, it's only respect. And then we say you know what, today was the day

00:32:11--> 00:32:20

that he was born. And if you don't know the day doesn't matter we always invent so we say here is the day that he was born. So now we are going to celebrate his birthday.

00:32:21--> 00:32:50

Again going by Sally slab 25th of December is not when he Salus lamb was born. Everybody knows that the whole world knows it. But 25th of December is celebrated as Christmas 24 December Midnight Mass the pope does from the Vatican the pope himself knows that his lap that is that is Ali Salaam was not born on the 25th Why does he do the midnight mass on the 24th night from from the Vatican you should ask him

00:32:52--> 00:33:00

no no disrespect intended and you're saying seriously asked this question. When you know that something was not the date of birth. How do you celebrate it? Why do you celebrate?

00:33:03--> 00:33:11

But they do because now something that is done consistently over time gets becomes real.

00:33:12--> 00:33:16

Even though it's fantasy, even though it is fantasy it becomes real.

00:33:17--> 00:33:22

And that is why Islam is so seems to be very rigid about not celebrating birthdays and dead this

00:33:24--> 00:33:30

how do you celebrate the birthday of Maha masala by practicing his Sunnah

00:33:31--> 00:33:38

not by singing the shades on on a particular day. And of course we don't even know the exact day on which he was born, it is not recorded.

00:33:39--> 00:34:11

So 12th or a viola well and so on and so forth is not recorded. When the we know the day he died. And it's perfectly understandable the day he was born. Nobody knew that he was being born other than Allah subhanaw taala Why would they record it? Here was an orphan being born in a you know, in the home of people who were not even very prominent. They were poor. I mean, Abdulmutallab was a honorable man and he was the head of the tribe but but money wise they were poor.

00:34:12--> 00:34:18

Why would they record the date of birth of that child and never they didn't regard the date of birth or anybody in those days?

00:34:19--> 00:34:27

Why only Mohammed Salah was the date of birth Oh Hamza bin Abu Talib recorded was the date of birth recorded was the was the date of birth of

00:34:31--> 00:34:37

all of them. Was it was it recorded? Was the date of birth? recorded? No. Was the data

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

data?

00:34:40--> 00:34:45

was it was it recorded? Is there an authentic record of when these people were born?

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

It was not the custom of the time they didn't do that.

00:34:50--> 00:34:56

But when Lazarus Rajaratnam passed away, do people remember that? Of course, because here is the NaVi alehissalaam.

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

And he is dying. I mean, what is more colorful

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

And what is more, you know, tragic and what is what what is? What is worse than that? The passing away of the NaVi the stropping of the way, people remember that.

00:35:12--> 00:35:25

But we say we want to celebrate is dead, then people make all that. Aren't you happy that he was born? What kind of an argument is that? What kind of an argument is that? That is the most stupid argument I've ever heard if anyone tells me, aren't you happy that?

00:35:28--> 00:35:36

If somebody asked me, aren't you happy the Rosaura salon was born, I would be insulted. How come you asked how do you how do you ask me that question? How dare you ask me that question.

00:35:38--> 00:35:48

But because I'm happy that he was born, I must according to you necessarily have a celebration, have a birthday party on the on the 11th of the 12th of romulo. Nonsense.

00:35:50--> 00:35:57

absolute nonsense. So what is the way of celebrating the birth of Mohammed Salah is the following of his son

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

of his son

00:36:01--> 00:36:02

is the following of Islam.

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

He's in living my life according to the tsunami.

00:36:08--> 00:36:16

So this is what happened. This is what happened with with practically all the MBL a Muslim it happens today to this day with people who are not even ambia

00:36:17--> 00:36:39

example because it is you know out there in the world we can see that but there are many other examples of people who are great scholars who are more heady and who are thou art of Islam who practice Islam who propagated Islam, who had big followings today, they are within quotes worshipped.

00:36:40--> 00:36:55

Now you might say well, you know I don't make such you don't make that about you know, many people makes it you know, many people make the laugh of the of the graves of people. You know, many people sit there and ask specifically that person and say, Please, I don't have children give me children.

00:36:57--> 00:36:59

I don't have a job, give me a job.

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

There are other people who make this die will and say, Well, you know, I'm asking that person to ask Allah.

00:37:06--> 00:37:29

Do you know that this is exactly what the Michigan omaka did with their, with their idols? And when they were asked and this is the Quran, go read the Quran. And when they were asked, they said no, no, we are not worshipping the idols, we are only asking these idols to ask Allah. They are things which will get us closer to Allah. This is our This is our watch.

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

So what's the difference between between your argument and that argument?

00:37:38--> 00:37:52

Just to stop fooling yourself. This is what is like Ibrahim alayhis salam came to the room Elisa Lam came and all the amazing Amelia mussalam came to disconnect us from all by fluke and connect us to the college.

00:37:53--> 00:37:57

And anyone who tells you that you have to go through makhlouf to get to the college with Elia.

00:37:58--> 00:38:29

rasuna sam did not even say that about himself. He didn't say go through me for Allah. He said connect to Allah subhanho wa Taala they came to Dr. sola please make dua for me. Man came to Israel I have a pen here. Please make dua for me that my pain should go away. What do you think that man wanted? He wanted the blessed hand of Hamas or a solemn to restaurant, his chest and then amateurism would make the award in the lobby la sala What did you do? He said put your hand on the pain. Put your hand on the part which is painting and make this dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala What does that tell you?

00:38:32--> 00:38:33

What does it tell you?

00:38:36--> 00:38:41

A man gave to me Ursula I would like to be please make dua that I am your companion in Jannah

00:38:43--> 00:38:51

that I have given either I am your companion in July I should be in your company in general sooner sir I will make dua but you help me with your ama

00:38:56--> 00:38:57

number one, just as please

00:38:58--> 00:39:05

stick to the heat. That is why the Quran came that is why Allah subhanaw taala sent all the mlms around

00:39:07--> 00:39:13

and that is the message of every Nabhi the ambia came to connect the ABS to them

00:39:14--> 00:39:17

without any intermediaries

00:39:20--> 00:39:41

the importance of the NaVi nobody can get to Allah without mohammedanism Let me please understand is very clearly no one can get to Allah without Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam but what does that mean? It means without following Mohammed Salah Salah without obeying Mohammed Salah Salem without being on the Sundar Maha Sam you cannot get to Allah.

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

We need Mohamed Salah.

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

But we don't get to Allah subhanho wa Taala by worshipping mamasezz that is why

00:39:51--> 00:39:56

what was his address? And we all read these things. No, we think about them. What did you say after?

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

What was his famous address in machinima

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

Sherif, he said, those who worship Muhammad know that Muhammad is dead Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. But those who worship Allah know that Allah never dies, how you live the lie about what kind of statement is that so hard Allah, Allah Subhana Allah will be handy.

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

This is our theme.

00:40:18--> 00:40:31

And this is the meaning of spiritual health. So check your heart to say who is in it. Even your heart is Allah subhanho wa Taala della delallo then your heart is pure inshallah and your heart is, he's healthy.

00:40:33--> 00:40:39

But if there is anyone else sitting in this heart and we look at that, going forward, if there's anybody else sitting in the art,

00:40:40--> 00:40:47

along with Allah subhanaw taala, or instead of Allah subhanaw taala then you have cardiac disease, your spiritual heart is sick.

00:40:50--> 00:40:55

And if I'm in that situation, and if you are in that situation, let us clean that heart.

00:40:56--> 00:41:00

Refer yourself to a spiritual doctor.

00:41:01--> 00:41:13

We need spiritual doctors just like we need physical doctors. We need like we need cardiologists you need spiritual cardiologists. And if you don't have that, make route Allah subhanaw taala then it's vigil. cardiologists are not so easy to find, unfortunately.

00:41:14--> 00:41:23

So if you don't have that, make rojo Allah subhanaw taala turn to Allah. Allah please. I have nobody I have you. I'm asking you please clean my heart.

00:41:25--> 00:41:33

Remove everything from the heart. La ilaha illAllah. Throw everything out. Illa Allah, Allah subhanaw taala.

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

ask Allah to fill your heart with his know, with his asthma, with his showkat with his Takata with his COVID with his Kashi

00:41:45--> 00:41:50

and to lighten it, and to remove every darkness

00:41:51--> 00:42:03

of every form of Shik, the darkness of all fears other than Allah, the darkness of all anxieties, except to please Him.

00:42:05--> 00:42:28

ask you I ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill your heart with Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so that you live your life, according to his Sunnah, which is the only guarantee for Jen. We ask Allah to give us genital for those without zap and to give us the company of Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa he was I was on some lalana will carry while he was away.
