Bismillah Rahim Al Hamdulillah Helen behind me was another was salam ala Shara freedom ba when would saline.
Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Hi Lee while early he was have you sell under Stephen cathedra I'm not bad all I've ever sisters. As some of you might be aware in my
business consulting my one of my specialities is change management,
acceleration of change, change management bring about creating change. And
in that context, I always advise people, I tell people hire values, train skills, higher values, train skills, because to train values into people, to train people to have the kind of values you want them to have when they don't have that. When they have not been raised in those circumstances, those values have not been inculcated into them to bring those values into people is
I don't like to use the word impossible but it's as close to impossible as you can get it's very, very, very difficult.
And also Rolla Salah was challenge was precisely that, to change the values and beliefs of people.
Right, it is the most difficult thing to do on the face of the earth in this life, there is nothing which is more difficult than changing or trying to change the values of people.
Yet that was his challenge.
So, as long as
I when he again faced rejection and amazing it is how, you know people when they face rejection, they go into depression and become suicidal and all kinds of things. But it is the MBR a Massara whose hearts are supported by loss Ronald Dela who faced rejection after rejection after rejection take the case of one is around 950 years of rejection. Right? We talked about his dour, but I don't have tears but what are the effects of that were the majority maximum effect of that data was that he was rejected by the vast majority of people don't 950 years of rejection of one after the other, you probably set up same story Musa is Rob same story sorry, setup, same story. Also lots of asylum,
same story, you name the Navy, it is amazing how anyone who wants who wishes something good for people and who likes to no tries to do something good for people is welcomed. Right? What is the what is the secret of within chords, the secret of popularity of all the motivational speakers there? Tom Peters, this one that one? What is their the secret of their popularity, the fact that they want to do something good for people, people appreciate that they become millionaires. I mean, these people charge big money to give those motivational speeches people are happy to, to, to pay that money.
Look at the effect of that how many people do you see in the world who are actually usually motivated, how many people who are usually entrepreneurial and so on and so forth, a miniscule minority, yet people are just listening to that people love to do that. Right? Except one thing, where the so called motivational speaker is talking about the hereafter. He's talking about the accuracy. And that's the only thing which matters. The only thing that matters, if whether I'm motivated or demotivated, whether I am usually positive or negative, whether I'm depressed or whether I am, you know, hugely energetic or whatnot. As far as this life is concerned, that state of
being has a finite ending, there is a time when it will be finished.
What remains is what goes with me in the in the occur to the day of judgment.
And when anyone in the world presented that to people, all that he got was opposition.
All the records of this
and that was a state of reserves.
So he returned with sadness that there is actually an arcade with Italian, Alana, the brother of aluminum Italian, narrated that the Quraysh they came and they complained to our tiny and said that Rosa Salem is, you know, disrupting their meetings and so on and so on. He wasn't disrupting the meeting. This was all you know, concocted stuff, that they that they made up for himself, because he was preaching a way of being and a belief system that they did not believe in. So the they said, I will tell you gently requested or source or Salem to stop his data. He said, Why don't you stop it? You know, this isn't people nobody listening to you.
So what's the point in continuing? Just you know, give it up. Do go do something else.
I said to him,
he's in my uncle, do you see the sun,
he said, I am no more capable of stopping the sun.
And you are no more capable of getting a flame from the sun
than I am capable of stopping this message.
I'm no more capable
of stopping the sun meaning in its orbit, and you are no more capable of getting
a flame from it, then I am capable of stopping this message.
Now this was in another narration, he said, If they put the sun in one hand, and if they put the moon in the other hand for me, I will still not give up. What Allah subhanaw taala has given me as my job, this message.
Before I go further, let us just reflect on this one thing and say, This is the true value of Islam. This is the true value of Islam. This is the price tag of Islam. Do we believe that? Do we feel this value? Do we still it says one word this is what Allah has given me. And for most of us Allah's Mandela, give it to us without any problems. I mean, there are people I know some of them who have accepted Islam in some very hostile conditions. And they had to go through all kinds of difficulties some of them are still in those difficulties, may Allah ease things for them, May Allah help them and support them and protect them. But for most of us we were born into Islam My family has been has
been Muslim for over 1000 years.
Right there's not a single non Muslim anyone my in my in my in my lineage.
And we and we trace in my mother's side, we trace our lineage back all the way to the to the Saba to the surah.
So what will my difficulty in accepting is nothing. I mean, I was born into a Muslim family. Islam was all around me.
And maybe that's the reason why we do not value it the way we should.
But the Sahaba every single one of them came into Islam, every single Sahabi was a convert.
And that's why they had value for
so I will tell him when he heard this, he said
it's no problem, I believe you go ahead and do what you must do.
But think about this.
Here is a man who gave his support to wrestlers
who faced the hostility of his nation of His people, and who suffered because of that. In the end, he died in the
in the valley by his name, the shape of Italian
during the boycott, that the Moroccan Quraysh and the Moroccans visited upon resourcer Salaam and his immediate family the the one hardship because of a sort of method.
I will tell it stood with Ross Ross has run throughout that even died in that situation. But he did not accept the message of Ross.
They asked him they said he also loved what is the situation with Abu Talib said Allah subhanaw taala will put him in jail
but will ease his punishment. They said what is that? He said they will they will put sandals
of fire on his feet because of which his brain will boil in his head like water balls in a pot.
Now think about that this is the easiest. This is the least of the punishments of the Hellfire May Allah protect us from this, we are not capable of sustaining or or bearing any of it even for a split second.
Why is that happening? Because he did not accept the message of ourselves.
So accepting Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, just loving him. The singing she's about him. Just praising Him alone is not enough.
That praise that love must be expressed and must be proved by
following his message.
While he, Moira, he said If Allah wanted to choose a prophet, why didn't he choose me? Now he was one of the big people in college, although they live in Java said one day I was walking in the streets of Makkah with abjad let's see how the how the dynamics of this whole thing he said I was walking in Makkah with Abuja hello and we ran into Muhammad Salah so he came to our to our jail and he said why don't you believe what I'm telling and believe in Allah and follow me.
I will say said Oh, Mohamed, sunrise and maybe he will stop cursing our gods now. He didn't curse the gods but this is what I was his way. And he said if you want us
To testify that you have completed your mission, we will testify that if you're looking for us to give you
support and to testify wherever we will do that.
Then he said, If I thought you were telling the truth, I would have already followed him.
So he outright denied that. That's what I've left. And only I said, then I would just say to me,
I know he's telling the truth.
I see the duplicity of this man, on the face of resources, and he completely denies it.
And he said, If I thought you were telling the truth, I would, I would have already believed it, meaning I don't believe that you are speaking the truth. But to Aloevera in private, he says, I know he's telling the truth. But something is holding you back.
Then he says, this is the crux of the matter. He says, The descendants of Osama bin killer meaning is talking about the banhammer, he was the one who have visited from a different tribe, different parts of the tribe, different sector of the tribe. So he says the descendants of Kasabian killer have said they wanted he Java they wanted. They wanted another they wanted to do it, which is feeding the Pilgrims giving them support.
You know, giving them water from zamzam. And another was their, their meeting also the brainwashing body
where they were the leaders of the community. He said, We gave all this, then we picked up and we were running with them next to next reason. And we also had our own
reasons for our significance. And this was it was a it was a
you know, equal kind of race
when they say they have a profit.
Now how can we compete by how can we compete with that?
So he said, by God, we will never accept.
So really, here the issue is ego. The issue here is not truth and falsehood. The issue here is not whether what resource or seller was saying is correct or not correct. The issue here is, even though I know what he's saying is correct, I will not accept it. Because it will mean that I now have to make myself subordinate to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and I will, I will not do that. That is his position. It's a position of ego. So for me, it was a matter of competing for status, with wrestlers, family, as a very important lesson in how pride blinds us from the truth and hardens us in falsehood. Even though we know that what the other person is saying is correct. The important
thing to realize is that if someone tells you that your house is on fire,
and you don't believe that person, and you don't accept it, because you don't like that person
who gave you the news, in the end, it is you and your house, we feel bad.
Not liking the messenger is not going to save you from the
result of denying that message.
The one who gave you the message he's not he was born with he will he's told you what he has to tell you and he will leave.
But you don't want to believe that. So what happens if you damage yourself, we can only reject the truth at our own peril.
wisdom lies in listening to the message objectively and accepting the truth and not be colored by our likes and dislikes in a way that prevents us from accepting the truth. That is the reality which I remind myself and you let us think about
Selim bilag, was not personally physically persecuted or attacked by the courage because of his lineage and the production of his uncle, Italia. And of course,
Allah when he put that, you know, the the intersections of the calculon on the visa salons, bless neck when he wasn't sujood. So some of some things like this, they did.
And you know, may Allah,
Allah will punish them for that. But the thing is that they didn't sort of beat him up or they didn't, you know, didn't physically assault him and things like this. But the Sahaba were persecuted mercilessly, especially in the week especially the women especially the stiffs
some of them they will dress them in metal armor
and they will be staked out in the sun they will tie them to sticks and put them out in the sun in the desert and imagine that they will leave them the whole day. So you know they would lose consciousness there. There will be suffering with thirst and so on. Will may have been Calif used to put a rock on the chest of beloved Rama Delana and have him dragged on the ground manually.
What happened was back and so on. Sandra Bella Bella, who used to continue to say I had, I had had to write
whatever in color, you would get so angry with this, that he would beat him. He used to beat him mercilessly until he himself got exhausted, his his arm
got exhausted and he couldn't beat him anymore. So he didn't stop because of mercy, he stopped because he just got tired.
But I'm gonna continue to say I had I had later on, somebody asked him, he said, Why did you do that? Why did you say I had? And I said, then I will answer something which is so incredible.
He said, I used to say that because that used to anger him the most. Imagine, this shows the tremendous spirit of our beloved and Allah and His love for Allah subhanho data and his deep. He was not trying to escape punishment. On the contrary, he did something which could only make the punishment more severe.
Because it made that man more angry. But he did that so that the name of Allah subhanaw taala would remain supreme, and the enemies of Allah would despair.
Right now, he was not the only one
to be tortured by any means. Yasser Allah Allah no and his wife so many have been cleared or the Alana, the parents of America in the asset, were beaten and tortured and eventually murdered both of them obviously hell killed both sides as I say that Sophia with Korea yet she was the first. Shaheed in Islam the first martyr Islam was a woman somewhere in Korea, and after that he killed her husband Yasser Dylon is well, Amara, we are also we got him we tortured him we beat him up and so on and so on. And finally in the in that pain area being unable to bear the pain, Amma vinyasa said some things about us you know so salaam which we have insisted he should say, upon which he listed. Mr.
vinyasa was very upset about this upset with himself about this, you know, how could you have done it?
And he was was was absolutely heartbroken and very ashamed of himself. He went
and he confessed his era salah, this is what happened to me, you know, he beat me up and so on. And then I had to say what I said, as well as ourselves, it was your heart, he said, No, my heart was completely at peace. There was no way anything any doubt into my heart ever. But I said this because I had to, to save my life. Sort of cynicism said in that case, there is no scenario
where it gives us the result that in order to save your life, or to save yourself from torture, and so on, you are permitted to recant your faith or to say something
which is against Islam, if you are in that sort of dire straits. But think about that. The same situation was there for the parents of Yasser our parents of America, the acid, his father, the acid and his mother's way, or their loved one, Anoma, the same situation was with them, but they chose to die rather than to recant or to get out of Islam or to say anything. Negative about Allah subhanaw taala or Rasul Allah. So each one, Allah subhanaw taala supports and reward
in keeping with what they do. Commandment, Earth was another one who was tortured or the Allahu, he used to be but they used to, they used to heat red hot days to heat coal and
put rocks and heat them and then they would
they would lay him on that. And he said, until the fire would go out because of the blood and fat of my body, which would, which would make the fire go out he said, this was the this was the way they torture. And
then one day he showed his back to southern our Casa de la vida shirt, and tell them what are the longest sets of huntleigh He said, I've never seen anybody that like that said it is so so bad. Now last around della said about these times in total on file, which means allah says remember when the disbelievers plotted against you, Omar was set up to imprison you or kill you or to get you out from your home in Makkah to banish you they were plotting and Allah Subhana Allah to was plotting and Allah is the best of planners, they were planning and Allah was also planning.
And Allah is the best of planners come up in
The law no despite all of this torture, and so on, one day he went to law school and I was sitting near the cover. And he said to me also about peace make dua for us that Allah subhanaw taala should relieve us from this suffering. As soon as Ansel Adams face became red with anger. He said there were people before you where they would catch a believer and they would call the flesh off their body with
they would sometimes they would place a saw on top of the Muslims head and they would saw him from his head down until his body fell in two pieces, yet they did not give up their religion, yet they did not leave their faith. He said Be patient have supper and the help of Allah subhanaw taala will come until a woman will be able to walk from Sara to her mouth to places in Yemen without being hindered fearing nobody but Allah
tells us two very important things. One is the importance of some of the importance of staying
not losing hope, not giving up, not complaining. So so critically important. And the second one is the importance of is the fact that help will come each other. Now, why did he name Sanaya Halbach because these places he didn't name mark or any other place
because in in pre slum, these were very insecure places. It was a totally tribal area, and one of the most insecure places in the world. Today, unfortunately, again, it's become totally insecure and you cannot travel there unless you are in an armed convoy and of course, that part of the war was over and so that has
proved that Muslims non Muslims, Muslims also what human beings never not. Now Allah subhanaw taala has laws for the establishment of an establishment of His deen and like his laws of physics and chemistry and so on. We must go through the meal if we want to establish the deen of Islam
like Rasulullah sallallahu did and his Samadhi there is no shortcut. There is no magic formula, there is no budget for that you can do it and
you know, go and drink on blowing water and drink it and everything will be fine. No, we have to go through the mill. If we want results.
The courage that decided to send Bob and Robbie was was SLM as he was an expert in poetry and magic. Now he went with a set of questions. And he asked most of ceramiche to tell me over hammer who's better you are your father. He's trying or he said, Are you or Abdulmutallab your grandfather? Now he's trying to play on these games to say that, if also as a result of that I am better than my father, then he would have said see here is a man who's destroying our tradition and so on.
The fact is that as soon as a lesson was better than his father and grandfather everybody else, but he Oba was when he was trying to trap Nosara Ceramidin. So is it telling me Omar was was better you are your father,
you are of the mortality. If they were better than you then remember that they lived and died on our religion. If you claim to be better than them, then speak so that we can judge.
He said by God there is no one who has brought so much evil on us. You have criticized us and our fathers and created dissent among us
so that we have been disgraced among the Arabs. And today people are saying that there is a saucer among the courage. Now the strange thing is that they were the ones who called us on us in a cinema saucer. And now Ottawa tries to blame Rasulo sort of award this saying how Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was,
was giving the college a bad name. This is the way of the enemies of Islam, fake news and Islamophobic propaganda is as old as Islam itself.
Simply listened in silence.
Then he asked him, he said all what
are you done? He said Are you finished? With ba said yes, I finished. So Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam then recited the
recited the beautiful ayat of
Lots of art that revealed these beautiful souls. And now he's also recited the Ayatollah facilite
the first to the 14th and was rather
excited. He said ha me, the the luminol Rockman era he

for the ones who do not believe in Allah subhanaw taala
but most of them turn away, so they do not listen. And they say our hearts are under coverings. Screen from that to which you invite us and in our ears is deafness. And between us and you is a screen. So you work on your way Verily, We are working on our way.
And let's just say over hamazon Salem, I'm only a human being like you. It is inspired in me that your ILA your deity or God is Manila is Allah subhanho that therefore take the straight path to him
which is Islam
and obedience to Him and seek
his forgiveness and war
to all the most equal of the qualities and disbelievers in Allah subhanho wa taala.
Then Allah's Rhonda said
those who do not give zakat,
there is believers in the hereafter.
Truly those who believe in the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala.
In Islam, and
do good deeds
for them will be an endless reward that will never stop which is generally say Omaha seldom do verily disbelieve in him
Who created the earth in two days, and you set up rivals in worship with him? That is the rub of the LME.
That is Allah subhanaw taala, the love of the Alameen which is all that exists mankind and jinn, and so on. He suggests Gela de la who, the glorious in the magnificent placed there in which is on the earth, firm mountains from above it and he blessed it and measure there in sustenance for his dwellers in four days, that is, all these four days were equal to the length of time for all those who asked about its creation, then he is the rose or
the earth towards the heavens when it was spoke, and said to it, and to the earth come both of you willingly or unwillingly, they both said become willing. Then he generated Allah who completed and finished from the creation, seven heavens in two days and he made in each heaven, it's a fad, and we adorn the nearest the doors, heavens, last heaven with lamps, the stars to be an adornment as well as to God
is the decree
of him the almighty they all know but if they turn away and say, Oh, Mohamed salah, I have one you have a sidecar, which is a destructive, awful cry. Trauma, like a thunderbolt.
Like the sidecar, like the sidecar like the try that underworld, which over to odd and somewhat, when the messengers came to them from before them, and behind them saying worship none but Allah and they said, our our, if our Rob
had saw, well, he would surely have sent out angels. So indeed, we disbelieve in what you have been sent with. So the disbelief
and although I heard this recitation, he put his hand on the mouth of all sources. And he said, Stop, don't say this. Then he ran away to his friends. His people asked him what happened. He said, Mohamed Salah Salam said something which I don't understand, but he spoke of the punishment or added some water, these were tribes and these were people that develops new
trauma from from out of their own history. And he said, like, I could not bear to hear it. And I told him to stop and deter. They said to Him, they're straight. He's spoken Arabic. And you could not understand. He said, I have no idea what he said. And this shows what happens to people whose hearts are sealed against the message of Allah subhanho data, as the ayat in this surah mentioned, they ask us viatera To save us from our own stubbornness, our own
face reality and willingness to accept the truth. And to guide us We ask Allah to guide us on the path to righteousness and to His pleasure was salam ala Vickery Murali, who was around to go live on Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa
