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

Larranaga Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala be able mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, just even Kaziranga sera from Avada.

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

My dear brothers and sisters,

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

we are in the session on leaving Islam.

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

And I remind myself in you that the purpose of all of these sessions is to practice Islam in our lives.

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

It is not only or it is not a drawl for gathering information

00:00:43--> 00:00:53

it is for actually applying Islam in our lives. So that Allah Subhana Allah would be pleased with us inshallah.

00:00:56--> 00:01:07

My dear brothers and sisters, it is narrated on the authority of your hair. Been Jamar for the Allahu that he met Abdullah, Omar,

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

Abdullah and Omar. When he was entering the mosque

00:01:12--> 00:01:16

he Abdullah Omar della Han Omar said,

00:01:17--> 00:01:31

my father, Omar Abdel Fattah Golan who told me one day we were sitting in the company of Rasulullah, Salah when there appeared before us, a man dressed in pure white clothes.

00:01:32--> 00:01:37

His hair was extraordinary, extraordinarily black.

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

There were no signs of travel on him.

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

None amongst us recognized him.

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

At last, he sat with Rasul Allah is our Salah.

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

He knelt before him, and placed his palms on his thighs. And he said,

00:02:03--> 00:02:09

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam inform me about al Islam.

00:02:11--> 00:02:29

Wa salatu salam said, Al Islam is that you testify you bear witness, that there is no deity, no one worthy of worship except Allah. And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Rasul of Allah Subhana hota. And you establish Salah,

00:02:30--> 00:02:42

and you pay zakat, and you fast in Ramadan, and you make Hajj, if you have the ability to do so.

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

If you have the money for the expense of the journey,

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

and of course the ability to so

00:02:52--> 00:02:57

he the Inquirer said, You have told the truth.

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

You have spoken the truth.

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

Now, Omar

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

dinardo said,

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

It amazed us

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

that he would put the question

00:03:12--> 00:03:17

and then he himself would verify the truth.

00:03:19--> 00:03:25

And then he the Inquirer said, inform me about a man.

00:03:26--> 00:03:33

And he also alleged Allah Salam replied, Yvonne is that you affirm your faith in Allah

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

in His angels melodica

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

his books,

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

his messengers, in the Day of Judgment, and you affirm your faith in color, the good and the evil of it.

00:03:53--> 00:03:53

Both

00:03:56--> 00:04:00

he the Inquirer said, You have spoken the truth.

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

He the Inquirer, again said

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

if he informed me about a lesson, a lesson.

00:04:11--> 00:04:26

He Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, Allah Hassan is that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you are seeing him. For those who don't see him, he verily sees you.

00:04:27--> 00:04:45

He the Inquirer said, inform me about the hour of reckoning the hour, the hour of resurrection, and he Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the one who is asked knows no more than the one who is asking.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

He the Inquirer then said, Tell me some of its indicators. And he Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said the slave girl will give birth to her mistress

00:05:01--> 00:05:16

Number one, number two, that you will find barefooted destitute goat herds, vying with another with one another competing with one another in the construction of magnificent buildings.

00:05:18--> 00:05:20

He the narrator, now this is over.

00:05:22--> 00:05:27

Then said, then he the Enquirer went away.

00:05:28--> 00:05:32

But I stayed with rossano solemn for a long while.

00:05:33--> 00:06:01

He then said to me, Omar, do you know who that Enquirer was? I replied, Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger know best rasulillah salam said, he was gibreel alayhis salam, and he came to you, in order to instruct you, in matters of religion. And this is in Sahih Muslim.

00:06:03--> 00:06:05

This is called holy grail

00:06:06--> 00:06:18

and the Mojave scene, they have said that this hadith amounts to one third of the knowledge of Islam

00:06:20--> 00:06:39

and the law, there are three I had these indicators of hedis about which this is said that the amount to one third of the knowledge of Islam, each of them, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us knowledge that is beneficial for us.

00:06:40--> 00:06:51

And knowledge that is beneficial is knowledge, on which we live our lives, knowledge that is beneficial is knowledge, which is practiced. Now, this is a very important

00:06:52--> 00:07:05

thing and a very important matter for us to keep in mind and to remember and to understand, because knowledge which is not practiced, is not beneficial, normally, which is not practice is

00:07:07--> 00:07:22

something which is actually harmful to us. And, as I've mentioned before, the solution is not to say that therefore I will not get knowledge, because ignorance is not a preferred thing. It's not a preferred state of being,

00:07:24--> 00:07:38

not knowing or ignorance is also not a defense in law. So, therefore, remaining ignorant will not save us from anything. The only solution is to learn and to practice what we have learnt

00:07:39--> 00:07:53

my brothers and sisters, let us look at this as this inshallah and try to understand it. And the purpose of all this is to see how I am implementing this in my life. Now, it begins with the question

00:07:56--> 00:08:01

that jabril Islam, asked, Rasul Allah says Allah.

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

And that is the first question he asked him is,

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

informed me about al Islam.

00:08:13--> 00:08:19

And as soon as I informed him about the five pillars of Islam, which is the Shahada,

00:08:20--> 00:08:34

and the second one is Allah. The third one is the gods. The fourth one is soul, which is fasting, and the fifth one is Hajj. Now,

00:08:37--> 00:08:43

the purpose of understanding this is not simply to memorize these five things.

00:08:44--> 00:09:19

So that if somebody says, recite for me, or tell me what are the pillars of Islam, and I rattle it off, Shahada, Salah zakaat so Hajj Alhamdulillah, I am I have passed my exam. No, we have not passed our exam. Now our exam will be passed only when we implement this in our lives. And this is only the first stage. So what is this first stage? What is the meaning of saying, implement the kalama the Shahada in my life?

00:09:20--> 00:09:31

The first stage of implementing the kalama Shahada in our lives, is to say it with our tongue.

00:09:33--> 00:09:45

Believe it in our hearts, and to act upon it. So we believe that karma in our hearts, we believe that there is nobody worthy of worship except Allah subhanho wa Taala Jelena.

00:09:47--> 00:09:54

We believe this with complete and total certainty, without any deviation whatsoever.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

Second part of it is that we then say this

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

without a shadow La ilaha illallah wa shadow na Mohammed or pseudo La La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah Chateau La ilaha illallah wa shawanna Mohammed Abu Rasul.

00:10:15--> 00:10:30

Right, we say this with our time. And the third one is, we practice this in our lives, we implement this in our lives. Now, what is the meaning of implementing the kalama in our life,

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

if I am saying that there is no one worthy of worship, except Allah subhanaw taala, that has got two

00:10:39--> 00:10:43

concomitant responsibilities. One,

00:10:44--> 00:10:48

the first one is that I do not worship anyone other than Allah.

00:10:49--> 00:10:57

Right, no matter what happens, no matter what the situation is, I do not worship anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

Whoever that anyone may be,

00:11:03--> 00:11:28

whether it is another human being whether it is an angel, whether it is a gene, whether it is a tree, whether it's a mountain, whether it's a celestial body, whether it's a planet, or sun, or moon or star, whatever it is, I do not worship that thing. Because that thing is a created thing. And I worship the Creator. And I do not worship anything which has been created. So this is the first part of it.

00:11:29--> 00:11:38

Included in the first part is to understand the meaning of worship. And the meaning of worship is again, twofold. One is

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

to

00:11:41--> 00:11:42

obey,

00:11:43--> 00:12:30

any created being in opposition to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Just obeying somebody is not necessarily a bad thing, or prohibited, for example, if I am driving on the road, and no, there is a traffic law that applies, I follow the laws, I hope I'm obeying the traffic law, nothing wrong, and the law should do that. There's nothing wrong with that. If I am, if I ask if somebody tells me, you know, do this, or do that move this table from here to there, or, you know, I'm working safe, I am employed by some company, or by some organization, I'm doing some work for the organization. So I'm obeying my boss, I'm being the policy of the company, no problem. You're talking about obeying in

00:12:30--> 00:12:38

opposition to what Allah has ordered us to do. So if the

00:12:40--> 00:12:44

if the company says or if the law says, or whoever says,

00:12:46--> 00:13:19

do not pray, or do not fast, or do not follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah salam, or if this if they tell us to eat something which Islam has not permitted, or the the opposite, which is the prohibit us from doing something which Islam has permitted, if any of these, if I'm doing, then I am violating the first part of the kalama, which is Isla de la isla, I am violating that first part La ilaha illAllah. I'm violating that part of the calendar. Now.

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

So as I said,

00:13:23--> 00:13:29

first part of the calendar is what that I bear witness that there is nobody worthy of worship except Allah subhanaw taala.

00:13:30--> 00:14:22

Along with that, it means that I will not worship anyone other than Allah. That's the first one. And then and along with that is that I will not obey Anyone in opposition to Allah subhanaw taala. So in a particular matter, if Allah subhanaw taala has ruled something, I will do what Allah told me to do, I will follow that, and I don't care what anyone else ruled in that case, because I don't follow them I fall on that. Third thing, which is also associated in that same first part of Laila is, I do not seek help from anyone other than Allah subhanho data, again, that does not refer to asking somebody to help you get a job or asking somebody to give you a glass of water, or something like

00:14:22--> 00:14:28

that. It refers to asking for help in things that

00:14:29--> 00:14:52

only Allah can give. For example, if you do not have children, you ask somebody else for children, asking somebody to make dua for children. Nothing wrong with that you can do can do that. Somebody who's living but if you go to a grave, for example, that a grave of some good person, great person, and you go there and you make dua, and you say you have been fallen,

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

fallen, fallen, fallen fallen, right. Please give me children.

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

I do not have children, or you say please make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. To give me children, this is not permissible in Islam, this amounts to so much openshift because you are asking the dead to make dua for you, when Allah subhanaw taala told us clearly in the Quran, that you cannot make them hear the dead cannot hear. So therefore you are going and asking somebody who's dead to make dua for you. And this is, it is neither logical knowledge nor is it is logically correct. But if you are asking somebody who's alive, and if you ask them, you know, please make dua for me. 100, there is nothing wrong with that. So three things, worshiping only Allah, not anybody else, asking help

00:15:46--> 00:16:02

only from Allah, not from anybody else. And obeying only Allah, and not anybody else, if that person if the other person's order is the opposite, the opposite of what Allah subhanaw taala said, right? So this is the

00:16:03--> 00:16:23

first condition of Laila halala. The second condition of Laila heilala, is I declared, that there is nobody worthy of worship except Allah. And I say I will not worship anyone other than Allah said part of it is that I do worship Allah.

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

It is not sufficient simply to say I will not worship anyone other than Allah but I also don't worship Allah No.

00:16:32--> 00:16:42

Now you might say, Well, you know Who says that? No, you may not say that I'm doing that. But you may be doing that. Because you are saying Laila hi Lola. But when the time for Salah comes you don't pray

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

when the time for Salah comes you don't pray? Then what do you say?

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

Good prayer is for Dubai is for five times a day it is for

00:16:55--> 00:17:05

so when the time for Salah comes. If I don't pray, then by not praying, I have negated my statement of a shadow Allah Allah Allah.

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

Right.

00:17:09--> 00:17:13

Please understand five pillars of Islam is not simply to talk about five pillars. No.

00:17:14--> 00:17:15

We haven't even finished with the first of them.

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

And I'm trying to be very brief. I mean, this guy again, I can go on on this first pillar forever.

00:17:24--> 00:17:28

But that's not my purpose. My purpose is to make it simple for you so that you can apply it right and apply it.

00:17:30--> 00:17:38

So when I say shabalala Hi, Lola, and bearing witness that there is nobody worthy of worship except Allah subhanho wa Taala della della who,

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

then I must prove that by my action,

00:17:44--> 00:17:50

what it is is the condition, believe it in the heart, speak it with your tongue and act upon it.

00:17:53--> 00:18:25

Believing in the heart, yes, we understand that speaking with your tongue, very simple, acting upon it is the issue in acting upon it as I said, there is a there is a negative side to it, what I will not do which is I will not worship anyone other than Allah I will not ask help from anyone other than law, I will not obey Anyone in opposition to Allah. So these are all three nafi all three things that I will not do. Now what will I do? I will do this the opposite of these three, first of all, I will worship Allah.

00:18:26--> 00:18:28

Now make this

00:18:29--> 00:18:34

an absolutely unalienable rule in your life.

00:18:36--> 00:18:36

Right?

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

Totally, absolutely. unalienable, there should be no doubt about this in your mind,

00:18:44--> 00:19:02

that I will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever may be happening whether it is raining or snowing, whether it is hot or cold, whatever be the situation, I will worship Allah Alhamdulillah May Allah subhanaw taala accepted from us and May Allah

00:19:03--> 00:19:07

forgive us for that reason. Alhamdulillah Muslims

00:19:08--> 00:19:17

insha Allah proved to Allah subhanho wa Taala that even this whole COVID thing could not stop us from worshipping Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah

00:19:19--> 00:19:23

we could not go to the Versace and it is good. We did not go to the Masai

00:19:24--> 00:19:28

because of the danger of contracting this COVID

00:19:29--> 00:20:00

but we prayed at home and we may be prayed by Gemma at home we prayed in Alhamdulillah Ramadan came we prayed Ravi at home serrato aid we prayed we prayed the Salah to eat at home. We prayed for Laila at home. If we were not Havas, then we looked at the poor and the most have the Imam read from the must have an Al Hamdulillah This is permissible. Those who did that all power to you. Those who did not want to do that and you

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

restricted yourself to the surahs that you know Alhamdulillah good for you as well.

00:20:06--> 00:20:12

Right We did this Alhamdulillah we ask Allah to accept it from us and to remove this

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

calamity from the whole world

00:20:17--> 00:20:19

as a result of our door

00:20:20--> 00:20:30

and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to enable us to go back into our masajid and to pray in our massage in congregation.

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

Now,

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

therefore,

00:20:40--> 00:21:02

three things that we in the Coronavirus, Allah Allah Allah Allah three things of nafi three that we don't do the opposite three, which we do, and the first one that is that we pray, please understand that let us not nullify the benefit of the calima by not applying it and by not acting upon it.

00:21:03--> 00:21:07

It is not sufficient simply to say it without

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

anybody can say to that.

00:21:12--> 00:21:53

For example, if you ask anonymously when many non Muslims who live in Muslim countries or who have Muslim friends and so on and so forth, many of my friends for example, if you ask them what do Muslims believe, I'm sure many of my Hindu Christian or whatever, Jewish friend Sikh friends, I'm sure many of them would be able to say Laila Hello lava masala they can say that they know this. But that does not make them Muslim just because they have said that Karima it does not make them Muslim. Because in the heart, you have to believe it. And then only you speak. So what is coming out of your tongue is the expression of what is in your heart.

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

You're not merely saying this because you memorize those words. You are saying what is in your heart.

00:22:03--> 00:22:10

And the third thing, part of the same thing is demonstrating that in our actions.

00:22:12--> 00:22:20

And that demonstration is the Salah. My brothers and sisters I remind myself when you the Sahaba all of them were

00:22:22--> 00:22:23

but we're

00:22:24--> 00:22:36

we're agreed upon motherfuck we're agreed upon this opinion that the one who deliberately leaves Salah has left Islam.

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

Please understand I am not making a fatwa I

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

am not making a fatwa.

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

This is the Hadees of a solar cell.

00:22:48--> 00:23:03

Where he said Allah algo Lea by Nana obey no masala Furman our other half called Guevara okoma Kala de salatu salam, he said the I had the covenant, the line the dividing for the distinguisher the the the the,

00:23:05--> 00:23:12

the thing that, you know, differentiator between us and them meaning between Muslims or non Muslims is the Salah.

00:23:14--> 00:23:20

From another half Saqqara The one who left it has left Islam has committed COVID

00:23:21--> 00:23:27

and azova we're all agreed upon that, if somebody deliberately leaves Salah.

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

Now the Imam

00:23:30--> 00:23:41

they have deferred with regard to the punishment associated with it. They have differed in some cases to whether leaving only one Salah

00:23:42--> 00:24:05

will will disqualify a person or just deliberately leaving one Salah will it make a person non Muslim or does he have to does it have to be something that is a habit he he kind of never prays? So he did not leave one Salah but he just doesn't pray at all. So which one is it? People have differed on that.

00:24:06--> 00:24:34

People have differed in terms of Juma specifically to say whether leaving one Juma renders you out of Islam or whether it is three juveniles or whether it is more or less. So, all of these differences may be there including the punishments to be levied upon somebody who deliberately leaves Allah but what nobody has differed upon is that lead deliberately leaving Salah takes you out of Islam

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

right so let us on the side of caution and say that the rule I applied to myself is that I will hold myself and say that even if I leave one Salah even if I leave one Salah, then perhaps I'm being I'm throwing myself out of Islam, and what happens if I die in that state? I left us Allah I was supposed to pray Salah to Lhasa but I

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

said Now remember, if you forgot it doesn't apply this this does not apply. If you intended to pray but you got distracted you are in some meeting or something or God knows whatever you whatever you are doing and you because of that you got distracted so you could not pray and then suddenly you realize at the time one last one I forgot my answer. That's okay Angela, Angela, make Toba so far. And and pray Allah and you are good to go inshallah and talking about deliberately not being here, you know, you should pray, you are free everything else and you don't have to be free to pray you up, you must make time to pray. But when the time comes, including when somebody tries to, tries to

00:25:42--> 00:25:57

remind you, you say, okay, you know, I will pray Let me see, that kind of stuff is very dangerous. So leaving the Salah, so first is to pray and to pray on time to pay on time. Now, let me give you some good news as well.

00:25:59--> 00:26:33

Someone told us that Allah subhanaw taala says that if a slave of mine, praise the five for Salawat, the five prayers which I have made incumbent upon him, if my slave praise them on time, then it is my responsibility to forgive him and enter him into journal. Right? So I'm not only talking to you about the downside of it, I'm talking to about the upside of it, which is that if we pray on time, so first of all, respecting Allah made

00:26:34--> 00:26:35

five

00:26:36--> 00:27:18

Salawat for Ghana, so we don't miss them. We pray them and then we pray them on time. Now why should Why? What is the focus and why should we pray on time because it shows an eagerness to be in the Presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah said favi Luna lil mousseline, Allah, Xena homens, Allah himsa who Allah says woe to those who pray who delay their prey to delay their prayer. Now why because these are people who are who don't give it importance. So even though they do pray, we are not talking about available Mussolini's we are not talking about somebody who has left Salah. Right? It is somebody who was praying, but if that person was still praying, but that person delayed Salah,

00:27:19--> 00:27:39

it means that this person's attitude was like, for example, if there is somebody who works for you, and you call him a Kamiya, he says a bit. I'm not I'm not free. I'll come when I feel like it. Now, what would you say? How would you feel? Are you calling this person who's working for you? You're paying a salary, and you call him and he says No, I am not free? No, you it.

00:27:40--> 00:28:09

Dada. We are not giving a this is not an example for or off Allah subhanaw taala but I'm saying here is my Salim Malik myhockey muy muy Razak, Rosa de COVID Mateen. The one on whom I rely upon for every single thing in my life. And he's calling me the Morzine is calling me on his behalf IRS Li or fella. And I'm saying Yeah, which we'll see. I'm not free just now.

00:28:10--> 00:28:15

That is an attitude of arrogance and that is where Allah subhanaw taala specifically mentioned that

00:28:16--> 00:28:20

and of course, the people who leave Salah Abbas Allah COVID sakar

00:28:22--> 00:28:25

calu la COVID del Sol de

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

they asked, the Veronica will ask.

00:28:31--> 00:28:40

The people will ask those who are going into the Johanna and remember they are talking about could be non Muslims could be Muslims.

00:28:41--> 00:28:51

And they will ask them what happened? How come you landed in the soccer in the hand and they say we were not among those who prayed

00:28:52--> 00:28:53

we did not use to pray.

00:28:55--> 00:29:03

So leaving prayer renders you out of Islam. Leaving prayer will put you in the Hellfire Allah Masha Allah We ask Allah to forgive us.

00:29:04--> 00:29:08

I've given you the real from the Quran as well as the Hadees

00:29:10--> 00:29:17

and when should you pray? Mashallah galarza pray at the earliest time Don't delay the Salah.

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

Don't delay the Salah.

00:29:22--> 00:30:00

Sometimes we say we give we give some leeway especially in massages we say you know we are delaying the Salah for a period of time to enable all the muscle is to come it is convenient for them and whatnot. While I'm knowing there are the Rial for these people accepted but I remind myself that take the take, you know most of the Middle Eastern countries, Salah is paid on time as soon as the time for Salah comes as Iran is called. They give a time period of sometimes 15 minutes, sometimes as much as half an hour but not more than that. From the time the Salah comes to the time

00:30:01--> 00:30:36

The Prayer is done is never more than half an hour usually usually is about 15 minutes. And people come and people pray. Right. So even for massage, I would say pray at the earliest time. But if you want to if some machine is delaying the Salah, or whoever is authorizing that, you know, that is their problem. But I would say that if I was in my power, I would like to pray as soon as the Salah time comes in, because that is the best way. This is what also does a Salam advocated this is what he practiced. And this is what

00:30:37--> 00:30:50

Mount Shasta and others have told us to do. So Angela pray at the earliest time and as I mentioned, do this beautiful Hades where Allah subhanaw taala said that the one who prays on time,

00:30:51--> 00:30:54

who prays the five Salawat on time,

00:30:55--> 00:31:08

what is the reward for that, the reward for that is that Allah said on the Day of Judgment, it will be my responsibility to forgive that person and enter him or her into them.

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

So there is a guarantee of gender inshallah.

00:31:13--> 00:31:20

Right? Imagine that, what I mean, if if, despite knowing this, if we still leave the Salah,

00:31:21--> 00:31:22

then what do you see?

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

I mean, how,

00:31:26--> 00:31:46

how pitiable is that? And the obvious question to ask is, do we really have a man because if I have a man, if I know I am going to meet Allah subhanaw taala if I know that this is what Allah has promised me, when I meet Allah, what do I need? I need forgiveness of Allah and I want to go into Jannah What else?

00:31:47--> 00:31:54

And what is the easy way which Allah Himself showed us pray the five prayers on time.

00:31:55--> 00:32:09

That's it. hamdulillah now, please, don't insult your intelligence or my intelligence by saying that also just you pray five presidents enough after that you can lie and cheat and murder and rape and plunder are gone. Give me a break and give yourself a break.

00:32:10--> 00:32:11

Right?

00:32:14--> 00:32:18

Islam does not deal in mutually exclusive things.

00:32:20--> 00:32:28

Whoa, whoa, whoa, Allah is are important, and who vocally bad are also a are also important. How important, equally important.

00:32:30--> 00:32:35

I'm saying this because this is a kind of completely insane. Comments sometimes that you get

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

when people try to put one against the other.

00:32:42--> 00:32:57

They say Oh, but you know, if I if I, if I pray, does that absolve me or no, no, forget about prayer rights. What is important is you should not lie, you should not cheat. You shouldn't be kind to people and so on and so forth. Don't worry about No, both are wrong.

00:32:59--> 00:33:01

Both the things are wrong.

00:33:03--> 00:33:24

Both are important. It is important for us to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, with joy, with enthusiasm, with complete belief. And it is also equally important for us to treat other people, the way Allah subhanaw taala told us to treat them. And why do I do that? Why do I treat people?

00:33:25--> 00:33:44

Honestly, with integrity, with kindness, with compassion, why do I try to establish justice wherever I have authority? Right? Why do I help the weak and so on so on, because of the first one which is I want to please Allah Subhana Allah and my rub by Allah told me to do this.

00:33:45--> 00:33:55

My name is Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. He was I was Allah not only told me to do this, but he did it in his life. And he practiced it, and he established it, and he demonstrated it, and he showed it to me.

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

So I'm doing it.

00:34:00--> 00:34:00

Right.

00:34:03--> 00:34:10

So to pray on time. Second one is to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for him.

00:34:11--> 00:34:27

In the first part, which are what, do not ask anyone else, but I still need help. What must I do? I asked Allah subhanaw taala while I make the effort, because Allah told me to make the effort. And then I stand before Allah subhanaw taala I raise my hands and I say, Yara,

00:34:28--> 00:34:54

I did what you told me to do. I did whatever I needed to do to the best of my ability to the best of my intelligence. Now I need your help. Because I know that my effort will not yield results unless you sanction that. Therefore Allah helped me. Yeah, you're living in a monastery. You know, this Sabri was Salah in Allah Hama Sabri.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

Allah does it all you believe. Take the help of server

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

Which means patience, which means fortitude, which means integrity, which means consistency, which means steadfastness. Which means using your intelligence using the best effort possible, which is to tie the gavel

00:35:18--> 00:35:31

and then Allah Allah did not say I will have enamel Stein will be Sabri. Oh Salah, he didn't say oh you believe take the help of zabur or Salah no sobor was Allah

00:35:32--> 00:35:38

gave the help of Saba Watson, help absorber and Salah

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

sisters really seriously ask yourself this question that one day we are going to meet a Muslim.

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

What are we going to say? If we do not

00:35:51--> 00:35:59

take the help of our answer. So, in terms of asking for help, ask only Allah Subhana hota

00:36:00--> 00:36:04

nobody else. And third thing was obedience to Allah subhanho

00:36:08--> 00:36:12

wa Taala or Asolo cerca de voz of ozonized.

00:36:14--> 00:36:16

Allah said the only one

00:36:17--> 00:36:24

who obeys Allah subhanho wa Taala and who obey Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:36:25--> 00:36:29

My UT la wa surah who

00:36:30--> 00:36:42

forgot first of ozone azeema only that person will be finally and completely and totally successful. Nobody has

00:36:45--> 00:36:50

right? Three things not to do. And three things to do.

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

As I told you,

00:36:55--> 00:37:09

the purpose of this is to look in our own lives and say what is the application? So when I say that I am looking at this and saying Allah said

00:37:10--> 00:37:20

only the one who obeyed Allah and Rasul Allah says, Allah will be successful, what does it mean? It means the one who did not obey Allah and ressourcer salam will be a failure.

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

Right? It's very simple.

00:37:24--> 00:37:25

Allah did not say

00:37:26--> 00:37:34

the one who obeys Allah and Allah and also somebody else don't fuck advisor holder only the person

00:37:36--> 00:37:37

who obeyed Allah

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

and Allah

00:37:42--> 00:37:43

will be successful.

00:37:44--> 00:37:52

So ask yourself, do you want success? Obviously, yes, we want success. So what must I do? obey Allah and obey our sources Allah.

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

So anywhere where there is

00:37:57--> 00:38:01

an order and instruction, a,

00:38:02--> 00:38:14

you know, any kind of situation where I am forced to or I am tempted to disobey Allah?

00:38:15--> 00:38:19

What will I do? I will not disobey Allah.

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

Right, I will not disappear.

00:38:25--> 00:38:28

This is the meaning, this is the meaning of

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

following, or my use the law.

00:38:34--> 00:38:37

So, now what, what must you do? Look, look at our lives,

00:38:38--> 00:38:44

start from wake up, to go to sleep my whole day?

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

What do I do in my day?

00:38:48--> 00:39:00

What of those actions amounts to or may amount to the disobedience of Allah Subhan Allah and His messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

00:39:01--> 00:39:14

For a lot of men, the first of those actions as soon as their eyes open, is they go stand in front of the mirror and they remove the sign of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from their faces. How terrible is that?

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

How terrible is that?

00:39:18--> 00:39:19

And why do you do that?

00:39:21--> 00:39:30

Because your mind has been conditioned to believe that somehow a face without a beard looks nicer than a face with a beard.

00:39:33--> 00:39:36

Your mental conditioning nothing else.

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

Firstly,

00:39:45--> 00:39:50

then how are we going to get the Baraka and Rama have

00:39:52--> 00:39:57

so I'm giving only one example. But expand this in your life.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

How we earn

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

What we earn

00:40:02--> 00:40:05

what we eat, where we spend money,

00:40:07--> 00:40:10

we are earning selling haram stuff

00:40:12--> 00:40:13

right?

00:40:14--> 00:40:28

And we convinced ourselves you know if I don't sell this, I will not be able to image in an ally when an ally so weak Is this the one you are worshiping that you cannot even feed you unless you do something which is haram.

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

in that era when

00:40:33--> 00:40:37

the time has come, please look at yourself in the mirror, ask yourself some questions.

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

Do not disobey Allah.

00:40:42--> 00:40:57

Do not disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala it doesn't matter who likes it Who doesn't like it Do not disobey Allah and Hara. interest based earnings are not halal. Eat halal. doubtful chickens are not valid.

00:40:59--> 00:41:02

Drinking stuff in which you don't know the ingredients is not valid.

00:41:04--> 00:41:04

Right?

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

spend on halaal

00:41:12--> 00:41:24

don't spend on something which is doubtful. To leave the doubtful for that which is not doubtful is a sign of taqwa. And the one who has taqwa Allah subhanaw taala said I will solve his difficulties.

00:41:26--> 00:41:35

So if I have Taqwa and because of my taqwa I will not sell anything haram what will happen? Will my difficulty increase or decrease?

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

What could I add?

00:41:39--> 00:41:42

The same one which came to mama salsa, blah blah you have another one?

00:41:43--> 00:41:50

Because it is the same one who came to which came to mama sauce and lamb that one said Amaya tequila Haryana Houma. Harada

00:41:51--> 00:41:53

where Zuko Vinay

00:41:55--> 00:41:58

Amaya tawakkol Allah Hiva who has

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

that one says the one was taqwa Allah will remove his difficulty Allah will remove him from his difficulty Allah will extract him from his difficulty Allah will find a way out of his difficulty for him.

00:42:14--> 00:42:30

Soon I am a business and selling alcohol tobacco vaping lottery tickets, beer, pork products, pornographic literature, inna De La Hoya in LA Rajat, I'm selling all of this stuff.

00:42:32--> 00:42:43

And I'm telling myself or some, you know, cousin or shaitan, who's my friend is telling me that unless you use, so, this is America, this is your

00:42:46--> 00:42:51

as if the God of Europe is different from the God of India and Pakistan, or the God of the Middle East.

00:42:52--> 00:42:53

Now,

00:42:55--> 00:43:00

this whole earth is less than one grain of sand on a beach and you want to have all the all of these differences.

00:43:02--> 00:43:05

Allah subhanho wa Taala is horizontal COVID.

00:43:06--> 00:43:12

So you are your agents are telling you? No, no, unless you sell all this, your business will collapse, let it collapse.

00:43:14--> 00:43:29

Let it collapse, it's complete nonsense, it will not collapse, it will do even much better. And really and truly if you are in a business which cannot run unless you sell a firearm, then you have no right to be in that business.

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

Find another business.

00:43:33--> 00:43:38

Because Allah said, if you have Taqwa, I will remove your difficulty.

00:43:40--> 00:43:55

And I will provide you from sources that you cannot imagine. So if you are sitting now and saying well if I leave this what will happen? You will not get an answer where Allah said I will provide you from a source that you cannot imagine. So you cannot imagine the answer.

00:43:56--> 00:43:57

Do it and see.

00:43:59--> 00:44:00

Do it and see.

00:44:02--> 00:44:07

My job did not tell a lie. Those will my interview did not tell a lie.

00:44:09--> 00:44:12

Do it and seriously ask yourself do I have Eman?

00:44:14--> 00:44:27

Do I have you back? We are only on the first pillar of Islam. Allah Allah Allah Allah, Masha Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. And in that first pillar of Islam we are only Arusha La la la. We haven't even come Pasha Mohamed Salah will come to that inshallah.

00:44:30--> 00:44:43

I remember myself when you the takeaway of this lesson is sit down, introspect and look at your life and say, what is it that I must do in order to bring my life on to La ilaha illallah

00:44:45--> 00:44:47

wa salam ala harana will carry while he was amazed when

00:44:48--> 00:44:50

he made 111 Rabbil aalameen
