Got another email from the life of Bill alameen wa salatu salam O Allah.
Muhammad Rasul Allah,
send them to Stephen cathedra from my Babu myrobalan sisters, we are on the story of Cinema D Sarah. And on the second of the great stories of the Quran that Allah, Allah told us with respect to his
life, the life of Salim Ali Salaam, as I mentioned before, he was one of the two kings that Allah Subhana Allah mentioned. And therefore the Quran Alhamdulillah. And this Islam as a way of life contains lessons for anybody who wants to learn and who wants to practice living a life which is obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala
irrespective of their own status in life,
whether it's an individual person who is, like any of us,
and hamdulillah able to take care of ourselves, but we don't have any authority over others. Or if it is somebody who is in a position of authority of any kind, whether it is authority, or one person or one country, and whenever gave authority over the whole world, anybody,
including our listener, but he gives a very salam, a kind of Kingdom and he gave him kind of authority that he never gave to anyone else, before or after.
Now, the point is that,
how does one behave? How should one behave in that situation? And we learn from savonnerie Sara, and his father the other day, Sam, who stories we mentioned before, that the way to behave is to be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala
in every aspect of our lives, and to be constantly thankful to Allah subhanaw taala for what he has bestowed upon us. And this refers to any kind and any form of blessing that Allah subhanaw taala blessed us with.
Now, with respect to Islam, Ali salam, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the story of the aunt, after we the surah is also named for the novel. And I mentioned that story to you and we we discuss that in the last class. Today we have the other story where unless right as I said, I will initiate on the regime, both avocado para calamari Allah, Oda, unchain de la Ziva, who will that was the winner who have been shadier than Ola as by hand now who own a tn t visa on a movie. I just see these ayat.
Lhasa D inspected the birds, and this is part of his army and said, Well, what is the matter that I do not see the hobo?
Where is he? Is he absent? Why is he not here? And then he said, I will surely punish him with a severe trauma or I will slaughter it, unless it gives me a good reason.
Now, think about this with respect to the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
I'm not criticizing Sonali Saran, but I'm saying that here is a man who
was given authority.
And when one word is missing, his reaction is I will punish this person, I will punish this individual I will punish this bird because they are not here when they are supposed to be here. What happens to us when we are called before Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, and we don't go and we delay and we miss all together.
Think about the Ramadan of Allah subhanaw taala did not savage slaughter him I will destroy him. Allah does that give him more time. I will give him more time let him Maybe he will seek forgiveness. Right think about this is the the mercy or loss of an OTA and I remind myself when you let us not take it for granted that is not act as if you know we don't know or act as if this Mercy is not important for us. There are laws relative as it for Mikasa Origen for Karla I have to be Milan to hv YG Touka min. Saba him be nearby in yaqeen in me wotja to ini wotja to merata family home. Whoo t et bien Cooley. Shea in Voila.
autoshow nauseam wadjet to her bakoma ha, yes do do Alicia MC Min dooney. He was a young fella who was shaitan, who I'm at home for sat down and is severely from LA yet to do. The old didn't stay long.
He immediately came, he was on his way. So he came and he said, I have knowledge of something which you do not have. And I have come to you from
the country of Sabah with true news. He said I found a woman ruling over them. And she has been given all things that could be possessed by any ruler on the earth. And she has this very great and massive, a unique throne. I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah subhanaw taala and shaitan has made their deeds fair seeming to them and has barred them from Allah subhanho wa Taala has weighed so that they have no guides.
This is among the biggest
problems that there exists which is that people do things thinking them to be right.
There is a famous story of
Martin Catalano after the opening of Jerusalem
one day he saw Christians coming out of a church and he started crying he started weeping. And so they asked him is a while crying he said because here are people who are worshipping Allah, they are devoted almost nanoantenna but in that process of worship, they are actually committing shirk. They are joining partners with the last run of the worshipping Allah subhanaw taala not in the way that you prescribed but in some other way which they have invented.
And I'm crying because they do not even know that what they are doing is wrong.
Right I think about this one is that a person is committing a sin he knows it is a sin to a person who's lying who's stealing who's you know, drinking alcohol was gambling who was borrowing money on interest lending money on interest, whatever may be the nature of the sin. Here is a person you might find a person who is committing that sin. So obviously we do not we do not say that's a good thing or you know that that's okay it's not okay. But the hope is that here is a person who is committing a sin and you know that says having somebody a Muslim drinking alcohol May Allah protect us this is one of the big problem with our people may Allah protect us from this we have alcoholism
is a very big issue with Muslims should not be because it's private and for us, but we what people do.
Now the point is that a Muslim bringing alcohol is one can hope that he is when he's doing that or she is doing that. They know it is wrong.
That they're not they're not doing it considering it to be a good deed. They're not doing it considering it that this is okay. They know it is wrong. They know they should not be doing it. Yet they are doing so what they're doing is wrong. But at least there is hope to say that here are people who are doing something wrong, but they know it is wrong. So we hope that one day they will make Toba is the far they will seek forgiveness one last run of Allah and they will come back and put their lives back on track. But what about somebody who is doing something considering it to be good? They do have a job as a case of people who worship graves they go to the graves of people of
good people. And then they make sudo there they make dua to the person in the grave. They say so and so please give me children I have no children. And I would like to get married you know give me a good wife bazpur I am I am starting a business give me success of the business. They are making dua to the individual in the grid.
If you ask them and I have done this exercise many times Allah protect us from ourselves. I asked this person who was doing this door I said to him, tell me
this door which you are making.
The person you are asking does this person know you?
They said know if this person died 500 years ago.
I said number one number two you are speaking in or do or you are speaking in whichever language
In this case, it was although I said that did this person know what
they should know this person was error. This person was from an Arab country they did not or he did not told them.
So I said, You are asking somebody who you did not know, that person does not know, doesn't know you, so they don't recognize who you are. Number two, you are speaking to him in a language that he doesn't understand.
How is this going to be accepted?
So he's a no, no, no, he doesn't have to know he knows me. He knows everybody. And he understands all languages.
So I said to him, one Allah, Who is the one who knows everybody,
and who understands all languages, there's only one who knows your true, I said, You're right. That there is one who knows everybody, and who understand all languages. It doesn't matter which language you ask him in, he will understand. And it doesn't matter who you are, he knows you. Who's a person who's that, you know, not person but who's that entity.
The pauses Allah hamdulillah you know this, you know that this is Allah. So I said, Then tell me, how do you ask right? These qualities of Allah subhanaw taala to an individual to a human be, I don't care who the human being is, right? I'm not I'm not I'm not discounting or I'm not disparaging that individual. This individual may be the most holy the most. While they were alive, the most powerful, they might be the person with the highest status with respect Alice mannitol. And who's that Mama's
cell? Right? So this person in his grave, might be a newbie might be a Sahabi. It might be somebody who we call an hourly a volley of Allah and Allah Allah can be anybody can be Rasulullah Allah Himself Salallahu alaihe salam
but does that person know you does Asana know me individually? Personally, I have a big does you know, he doesn't know.
I hope one day Allah will grant me this either that I will be presented before as well as on a Sunday and he will acknowledge my Salah I will say salam alikoum jasola and he will say Baraka mazzara YAHWAH.
Hope this will happen. I asked a lot for this, I hope this will happen at his house on alcocer and I hope that I will be given the glass the water of alcocer the germ of alcocer the the glass with the water of alcocer by his blessed hand inshallah. But until that time,
if I go
remember sending Salam and salatu salam o sauces are different is a different matter when you say aloha Salinas Hasan Mohammed wild Alabama
Majid la vida, cada Humberto
Guevara to algebra one algebra, this is a different matter. There is a reason I'm the one who said Zarathustra Mommy, Allah subhanaw taala causes that to be brought to me and I respond to that hamdulillah we accept this We know this because this is what the who pulled us button we didn't say to you or we or anybody Did you say that after I am dead come to my tower hold your hands like this face me face my face my grave and ask me for God, if you need anything asked me.
And Allah will give you or I will give you or you asked me and I will ask Allah on your behalf. Did he say this?
Now when this is not even true of Rasul Allah is Allah Salah, how can it be true of anybody else? Because whoever else it is, is lower and status then so lives online itself.
So when it is not even true for the highest of the stat of the of the people of status, how can it be true for somebody who's lower itself, you're not disparaging anybody please understand this.
But at the same time, giving status or powers or whatnot,
to human beings, which belong only to Allah, this is schicke This is the end this is the route of ship.
To give the powers that belong to Allah, to anyone to hydralic anyone who's not alone, whether it's even been, whether it is celestial bodies, to say that you know, now this is the right staff, and this and the grand and the constellations are in the right dimensions all my life now will become very good or will become very bad, whatever the case might be,
to give powers that belongs only to Allah subhanaw taala to Mahalo to viola, to somebody or something which is not Allah.
This is schicke
This is open until
So whether you worship the sun or the moon or they worship celestial bodies or whether you worship
somebody in a grave, it's all the same and I went to bed, I'm not worshiping the one in the grave, but nobody was upset.
When he mad,
he said, a DA Mahoney bad. Oak amakhala. Listen to this, let me show the DOJ is the brain of a band, it is the essence of it. And he never plays he said DOJ is a better do i is watching.
So my brothers, sisters, please understand this.
anybody for anything to make dua to somebody or something, to seek a favor from somebody or something.
to seek a favor from anyone or anything, except Allah ran into this issue.
This is to join partners with illustrata.
Right, this ideology
and somebody who does that,
without knowledge is committing a sin, somebody who does that knowingly. May Allah protect us that person can place himself or herself out of Islam entirely.
So this whole game and he said, that this
Shima or Queen of Sheba or queen of Saba.
She's the queen or people who are worshipers of the sun.
Why not making here was that zillion Allahumma shatta
Amala. Whom, right
that the the shaitan has made their deed seem good to them. The point I'm making here is that it is so important to remind ourselves of the appeals of the heat. Because the biggest problem with doing something, imagining that it is good, is that you will never make Toba you will never make a stefarr illa Mashallah. And you will never stop doing that. You will only do that more and more and put yourself more and more into trouble.
When somebody was committing a sin knowing it's a sin, one can hope that this person will get out of it to make the fire on Dawa. But somebody who's committing a sin considering it to be good.
Where is the hope forced upon Allah Masha Allah because Allah subhanaw taala can give you that anybody wants
and that's the reason why we that and shark are so critically lethal and so bad because they involve the individual in something from which
except what Allah wants, we cannot even hope that the individual will make is the foreign power.
the Serbians this was the kingdom of Sabah or Shiva. It was situated in southwest now of the Arabian Peninsula in the first millennium BC, and at the time of its greatest prosperity. It comprised not only of Yemen, but also a large part of hadramaut and the
Mahara country and probably also, much of present day a senior
in the vicinity of its capital maarib. The Serbians had built in the course of centuries and astonishing system of dams and dikes and sluices and and canals, which became famous in history, and they have astonishing remnants external to this day. It was to this great dam that the whole country of Shiva
of Sabah owed its outstanding prosperity, and this became proverbial throughout Arabia. According to the geographer, Danny, who died in 334, hugely the area, irrigated by the system of dams stretched eastward to the desert of Sahara, which is on the borders of roble Holly in present days
Saudi Arabia, the flourishing state of the country was reflected in its people's intense trading activities and their control of the spice road, which led from Barrett towards bucha. Yesterday, Syria and eastwards too far on the shores of the Arabian Sea, thus connecting with maritime routes from India and China.
So, this is a big
you know, a very big one of the big empires
of ancient history. And this is so now, given where we are now we're looking at something which was
probably I mean, over 2000 years old.
And maybe more. And then unless right, I said, Indeed, there was for Subbu assign the very place to gardens, on the right hand and on the left, and it was set up there, eat of the provision of Europe and be grateful to him a fair land and an off for giving up.
But they turn away from the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala. So we sent against them, say, lol Adam, which is
the flood from the dam, and we converted the two gardens into gardens producing bitter, bad fruit or bad fruit, which is trauma risks. And, and some few law trees
like this, we recreated them, we rewarded them because they were ungrateful disbelievers. And never do we record in such a way except those who are ungrateful. And we placed between them and the towns which we had blessed, towns easy to be seen. And we made the stages of the journey between the easy saying, traveling them safely, both by night and day, but they said or make the stages between our journey longer
and the wrong themselves. So we made them as tails in the land, which means that they were destroyed only their story remains and we disperse them all toted verily in these, in this are indeed science for every steadfast, grateful person. So I'd be sad here.
So they wanted me Sarah,
inspired was inspecting his army. And you notice the absence of his one word. The lessons we need to understand is that leaders need to know their followers, and they need to keep track of them.
Here the punishment is severe
because it's a military situation. Resources are also followed the same rule with regard to battles. There is a story of a of the person with a
weak camel who disobeyed the order of masala. The reason I'm told, you know, told him not to join but he did. And his camel collapsed and he died. So the Sava said he also said he is not sure he he disobeyed my order.
another story of Anna's been Malaga. delana,
whose mother brought him he was about 10 years old and said to them, please take him and keep it with you
said what can you do is a little boy, he said they are sola he will serve you whatever you want. He will you know let him be with you. He was a very wise woman she knew the value of having her own person in the house, always a seller who would report to her everything that happened so that she could learn the D and G code is not as you were not spying as you thought putting the spy but just as a way of having access to the power so seldom whenever she wanted. So one day I just sent him to the market to buy something and on the way and also Delano saw some kids playing and he joined them and he forgot what is what is Aaron now Michelle isn't awaited for a long time for him to return and
then he didn't come so he went look for it. And then he found him playing with the children he asked him about his and he said what happened I said it was something
and so Delano said I also bipolar
and I got involved in playing so now isn't isn't and then jetbeam Where is the money I gave you to me I'll go get it now and so there are no such dollars pockets. That was fine. So the money also was lost. So did not punish me didn't didn't get angry.
He just told him Okay, no problem. Keep playing. And when you finish playing come home Don't be late. Now he didn't he didn't punish him that now he didn't even reprimand him.
Do you know what kind of a person what do you do the thing on the on the other hand, the Battle of our heart, where the Muslims lost the battle, because they disobeyed a single order as soon as I put these bunch of soldiers on the hilltop, which was between the boundary and there was a passage and there was a hill hilltop there and there was also put a group of archers on the hill and he said do not let anyone come to this to this passage, and the instruction they gave them was that do not leave this place. Evil even if you see
the crows and vultures eating from our bodies meaning that even if you are all dead still stay there don't move now, it so happened that in the first part of the battle, the Muslims one and when they won and the declaration the people who are with the police, they ran away. So when they were running away the Muslims who were on the on the hilltop, they saw the the brothers, the other soldiers of the army, they saw them collecting booty, right? Because those people have crawled their stuff. So they these people were collecting the booty. And there was an argument between them. And some of them said that we will lose our V you know we will not get our booty. So let's go get the booty. Now
the leader, he said to them Rosaura surah Sallam ordered us not to leave this place no matter what
to wish the counter argument that was given was that that applied while the battle was on now the battle is over. There's no battle now but resort people have run away. So the law that the rule the the order of his asylum is no longer valid.
So some of them still didn't believe that is it on avoid that as soon as I did not say anything but battle will be over not over. He said no matter what happens. Right even if you are dead, no matter what happens, do not leave this place. So we are going to stay here. But most of them left and they went to loot. And that was the opportunity there. Khalid bin Khalid Golan was waiting for at that time he was not Muslim. He was commanding a cavalry regiment, which was hidden behind
or hot and he had his eye on this hilltop with archers. And as long as the hilltop had sufficient archers to stop his cavalry, he didn't want to take a chance of getting everybody killed. But when he saw that most of them are gone. There were just a few people there. He came through that passage and the entire
the entire battle was turned upside down on its head and including a solar cell from himself was severely injured in the resultant
in the result and incidents that happen thanks to this disobedience of one order, one single order and the object is because thing today, that Novosel Solomon's ordered us to do so many things in so now we have so many beautiful lessons and so many orders of his on how to live our lives to become successful in this world and the next. And a lot of times we do not follow those orders. And the excuse that is given is exactly the same to say that, oh buddy, no, it was a different time. It was a different part of history. It was a different culture. It was different.
You know, chronologically 1500 years ago, 1400 years ago, times have changed situations have changed, politics have changed. You know, all kinds of excuses that we give my submission to is that it is all the same issues, which is that we do not want to obey the orders of service and Salah, see what happened there. Even though nobody Salah Salem himself was present in the field of battle.
He was himself present there. Still, the punishment for disobeying his order was not stopped because the NaVi was their self, including the fact that the Nabil himself got injured, thanks to the fact that somebody else disobeyed his order.
Right? Now this is how serious it is. This is how important it is for us to follow this date. This is a living religion. We worship a living God we worship Allah subhanaw taala
other than home there is no one worthy of worship. Allah subhanaw taala when you He is established, he is alive was Samuel Busey. He is auto Yours is the one who sees and he's the one who knows alim is at his door. He knows what is it out
Let us understand is very clearly to disobey Allah subhanaw taala is not
a discretionary power given to us, it's not a choice to disobey our sources seldom is not a choice.
Let us ensure that we live our lives according to the orders of Allah and according to the Sunda according to the beautiful method of innovation.
So, now, this hupo turned up and then he said he
he had gone to Saba River. So, my son was in Jerusalem, the Buddha said he went there and he saw this Queen of Saba
the name that is given is Malika below his who he said had everything and he specially mentioned her throne and then he said they worship shaitan they worship the sun instead of a masala and the shaker has made their teeth beautiful in their eyes and has barred their weight one of them is guided my brother sisters, we ask Allah Allah to guide us because
guidance, the right guidance results in success success is only in right guides. It is not in wealth it is not in power it's not in bullet in politics, it's not anywhere except in the correct guide. And that is why I was rather a tom taught us to ask for guidance in Sudoku 14. Is there a certain topic two things to understand here one is Allah taught us to ask for guidance and Allah was taught us to ask for the path of guide
the destination is Jana right? In other places we asked for Jenna but in Slovakia which is the the the the opening and which is you know where we get this from? Allah asked us to ask for the path of guidance what are the teller teller tells us that life is a journey we are not looking for guidance we got it die oh and dry. I don't have anything No. Throughout my life I can I have to continue to work to please Allah subhanaw taala. Throughout my life, I have to continue to do that which pleases us router and Rod my life I must continue to protect myself from that which does not matter. So guidance on the path, not just a destination guide is on the path. So the key thing is to stay on
the path to continue to work on the right path in the right direction. To know what house while you're walking, you will eventually get to the destination because you are on the right track and you are going in the right direction that is very very important to understand. not wait for or not to for some within quotes, destination completion conclusion. I'm done. Goodbye. No. This is a lifelong journey. We continue on it as long as we are alive and we thank Allah there was a hungry layer below me.
guided me to the right guides. Allah subhanaw taala kept me on the right path. How do I know it is right? That everybody whoever's doing whatever they're doing the thing is like, right? People are worshipping graves, they think it is right people are worshipping idols. Think is right. People are worshipping celestial bodies aren't born water stars, they think it is right. People who are worshipping animals or birds or worshipping you know, mountains of rivers, whoever, people everyone is doing something because they think it is right. So how do I know it's right?
How do I know Santa is right? How do I know not joining partners with allies right?
Because for us the criterion of success the criterion of right or wrong is what did resort allies do?
What did he do?
If he did something then this is the sole thing The only thing
which is the guarantee that that thing is right.
Right. Yeah, Sima Parana hockey, Nicola Miguel Moosa, Lina Allah.
Allah smarter. dresser solos are seldom by one of his beautiful title. And he said, and he took an oath. Well for Anunnaki Allah took an oath by the book of guides, that nickel guitar Molavi, who de Lille Mottaki, the book of guidance in it there is guidance for the people who are tough.
And unless rather I said, verily and Trulia mamas or salom, you are among the prophets and the Russell
Miller Musashi, Allah sirata mustafi and you are on the path of righteous guidance.
Therefore, anyone who is on the path of Muhammad Sallallahu
anyone who is
Doing what Russell Arsalan did
insha Allah can be sure that he or she is on the right path.
Please notice I'm not naming anybody. I'm not pointing a finger at anybody and giving you a criteria by which you can assess yourself.
And there is a reason for that, because you don't need my certification. You don't need my confirmation or my, you know, my certificate to say that you are right. And nobody,
I must assess myself, you must assess yourself. Because before Allah, we are willing to stand alone. There won't be anybody standing beside us to say he was right, he was wrong.
So here is the criteria. Here is the framework, whatever it is,
every single thing in our life,
who we worship, what we eat, how we earn, where we earn, from, how we treat anybody, where we spend,
what we do what we don't do
every single thing in life,
measure it against the life of Rasulullah sallallahu.
If he did that, to it, absolutely no problem.
If he did not do that, do not do it.
Don't worry who else is doing it? Don't worry about how long this has been happening in your family, in your country in your culture. Don't even worry about how long this has been happening in your own life. Don't say, Well, you know, I've been doing this for the last 500 years. I'm 75 years old. I've been doing this for the last 70 years doesn't matter.
There is always room for change, there is always room for repentance, there is always hope, in the mercy and in the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala for someone who seeks who wants forgiveness.
So let us ask forgiveness. There is not take it for granted. Let us not simply say Oh, Allah is okay. No. Let us be very clear in our minds. I will do what Allah ordered me to do. And how do I know that? Did solar cells do it? Did he pray? Yes. How many times? Five times? How many times should I pray five times? How should I pray? So Luca Mara to Manu Sadie, aka Kala Li salatu salam ej as you have seen me. Did he pays a car? Yes. Should I pay as a car? Yes. Did he faster now on? Yes. Should I do that? Yes.
Did he make hard? Yes. Should I make hard? Yes.
Right. Did he lie and steal? No. Should I lie and steal? No. Did he do he? Did he backbite? Anybody know? Should I buy it anyway? No.
Did he go and worship on a grid? No.
Should I worship on a grid? No. Did he ask anyone other than Allah for anything?
For example, did he go and ask even I have a Salah Nambiar, a Muslim who came before him? Did he ask them for favors? No. So should I ask anyone other than other favors? No.
Whatever it is, measure it against the actions of Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah values. If he did it, if you find that the lead mastana did not so and so set this on said that there's no authority in Islam.
Right. If you find evidence for it, do it. If you do not find evidence for it, don't touch it.
A brother and sister until you do something, you will not be questioned about it. So don't do it.
And no matter who tells you what, no matter who tells you what shaitan finds a lot of very convincing people to convince others to commit shirk, to join partners with Allah.
How else do you think exactly in the world? People as I mentioned earlier, people are doing it the thing they are doing right, when it's not right, because of a solar system did not teach this facade La ilaha illAllah la nafi Allah Allah Allah Allah, there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. There is no one who can harm who can benefit other than Allah. Do not ask anyone other than Allah. Make dua only Allah subhanaw taala This is the teaching of ambala Rasul Allah is Allah yourself. The Nami la Salam did not teach us to, to commit shirk. He did not teach us to join partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala, no matter who it might be.
So, let us take this
lesson from the story of survivalism. inshallah, we will look at other lessons in the future We ask Allah subhanaw taala to
be pleased and never to be displeased, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to help you and me in, in all
matters and to be and to help us to do that which is pleasing to Him or salon bakery while he was on his way
