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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah

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

Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira cathedra. Amato, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:00:17--> 00:01:06

we are in our class of leaving Islam as I mentioned in almost every class, the purpose of Islam is for us to live by this beautiful Deen that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent us it is not for us to just know about it is not for us to collect some information about it some nice stories, some iron ore and some hobbies, some stories of self Masada he, so and so did this one, so did that. All of that is not important. Obviously, it's important to learn but having learned what is important is not what so and so did. What is important is what you do and what is

00:01:07--> 00:01:12

that is the secret. And it is not a secret it is open.

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

If we do that in sha Allah, we can look forward to the

00:01:19--> 00:01:31

mercy and forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if we fail to do that, then of course we still look forward to the mercy and forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Tada. But

00:01:33--> 00:01:52

we will have no excuse to present before what Allah subhanaw taala geladeira, who we asked him to forgive us, irrespective of what we do or not, but believe me, I mean, the whole purpose of Islam has to make the effort is to is to try to,

00:01:53--> 00:01:59

you know, try to show give some proof of seriousness with regard to our lifestyle or

00:02:01--> 00:02:11

not that our deeds are ever going to be the reason for us to enter Jannah we we do not claim that nobody claims that including

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

himself

00:02:14--> 00:03:03

did not claim that. To the contrary, he specifically mentioned that in this in a in a beautiful Hadith, which is narrated by just Alanna rasulillah salam said that nobody will enter Jannah on the basis of their deeds, and say thou shalt delana said jasola even you he said even me and then she said, how will we will enter Jannah he said by the Rama of Allah subhana wa Taala by the mercy of Allah Renata, despite whatever you may have done, so we ask Allah for his Rama, then she said jasola then why should we do any work? Believe me, my brothers and sisters, the debt that we owe to say the Ayesha Siddiqa Allah Allah only Allah subhana wa Taala can repay her and we can reward her for that.

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

swallow this Dean. She is one of the major reasons One of the major die one of the major means by which we have this Dino powers. The scholars of Islam they have said that we owe 25%. We owe one quarter of the knowledge we have in Islam, to say the Ayesha Siddiqa Allah. She was a nice she was a remarkable woman. She was very intelligent. She had the mind of a scholar she had this huge analytical ability.

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

She had courage.

00:03:49--> 00:04:09

She had the the she had the love our allies, alaria solemn, and that was a shield and therefore she was able to ask him things that no other Sahabi dared to ask. And remember whenever we hear things like this is not because Rosaura Salaam was

00:04:11--> 00:04:49

deliberately intimidating or he was a threatening person or anything like that there was no one more loving than Mohammed Ali Salah, but it was that Allah subhanaw taala placed on him where he said that my enemies feel this for a journey of one month away from where I am. And obviously also his friends have felt this or when they came into the presence of Rasul Allah says Allah, Allah is one I just think about this today when we go too much as a novela. Sheree. And may Allah subhanaw taala grant us the opportunity to go there again and again. When you go to the Rosa mobarak. A to the grave of

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

anyone with Emma and anyone who knows Mohammed Salah Salaam knows anything about him has any sense of being his own God

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

What do you feel? Now? It's not just you're not standing in front of some grille of a building No, there is a there is a sense of presence. Even though this is a grave This is not a salon himself in person living talking walking you know inshallah smiling at us when we meet him and we ask Allah for this inshallah, may Allah grant us his role

00:05:22--> 00:06:03

in our sleep will monitor or in our wakefulness because they have been they've reported both of these that was seen by people in their sleep in a dream as well as by seen by people while they were awake in a vision. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for both of these I never make choices I never tell us right Allah give me this or that because Allah is not Allah is not constrained by choices Why should I give choices Allah give me more, give me the salamina dream and when I'm awake Alhamdulillah inshallah. And as I make the same job for all of you in sha Allah, May Allah give you this role and if you get this then do let me know that you have seen Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

he was abused.

00:06:06--> 00:06:55

In sha Allah, ask Allah subhanaw taala for this and then ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us all of us insha Allah, the actual meeting the sheriff of Malacca, the sheriff of the Sherpa meeting Rasulullah Salim on his house alcocer on the Day of Judgment, and May Allah grant that we get the cup of the water boil closer from his blessed hand inshallah, and that we cross the ziraat in the protection and his of Amman of Allah subhanho wa Taala, behind his heavy mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam and enter general for those who Allah. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for this, my brother and sisters, so say, Allah, so she asked him

00:06:56--> 00:07:08

when he said that nobody will enter Jannah the basis of the deeds he said even you, Allah sallallahu Sallam he said, Even me, he said, then how will people enter germination by

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

forgiveness? So she said that

00:07:17--> 00:07:41

she was to ask the bottom line questions, right? He didn't hesitate to ask this question. He said, If that is the case, if it is dependent on the mercy of Allah, then we open the mercy of Allah class, right? So I do whatever I want, I live my life any old way. Good, bad, whatnot, anything. And then I'm hoping for the mercy of Allah. If I get it, when I'm good, if I don't get it, we will we will think about that at that time. No,

00:07:42--> 00:08:11

you must work because the daraja the levels in Jannah, Allah will give you based on your deeds. So if a person says Allah one more time than somebody else, you will get a different, a different level in general and more reward, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to continue to do our deeds and continue to work in order to earn his pleasure. This is the whole issue, the whole issue of yochanan. The accurate is to get the reality of that in our lives.

00:08:12--> 00:08:51

Right and the reality of that in our lives. We know this from our own experience in life. Unfortunately, we don't seem to translate it into an understanding of the ACA, we know that in this life, you get what you work for, you get what you pay for, right? So if I want my garden to look nice, then I have to make some effort on this garden. It's otherwise the you know the law of entropy. The second law of thermodynamics, which is anything which is left without tension will only degrade will only disintegrate will only go from where it is today to a state which is less and which is

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

more

00:08:56--> 00:09:21

more negative, right? Yes, leave a garden as it is, you certainly won't find beautiful rose bushes springing up you will not find all kinds of you know beautiful flowers coming, you will find weeds, you will find all kinds of brambles and you will find all kinds of files and you will find the soil will go bad and you will find all kinds of atoms and so on. This is the law of entropy. This is the law of

00:09:22--> 00:09:27

thermodynamics as we know. We know this. So therefore what do we do with that with our

00:09:31--> 00:10:00

businesses, we look after our properties. We look after our gardens, we maintain our houses, we maintain our cars, we sign guarantees of design, you know agreements for preventive maintenance, those of you I come from a manufacturing background, so I can talk about preventive maintenance. How many of you who come from from a manufacturing background, or even if you don't, don't you understand preventive maintenance? One for example, in a factory we used to have one day per week, which was

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

On maintenance, which was minor maintenance one day per month on major maintenance, preventive maintenance before the machine breaks down, you work on the machine, ensure that all the all the moving parts are properly lubricated. ensure that all whatever is needed to ensure that the machine continues to work efficiently, whether they're machines, your car or your motorcycle, or your bicycle, whether the machine is a is a machine in the factory, whatever the case might be, right? preventive maintenance, we understand all of this. But with regard to our archive, I asked myself this question is what is my preventive maintenance? What is mine? When I've asked myself this

00:10:40--> 00:10:57

question, what is my preventive maintenance? What is my investment in Biafra? What am I doing to plant trees in my agenda in the Akasha, lavake gala for Ghana? When I go there, what what do I want to see in this gem I just, you know, blank, flat piece, because if I

00:10:59--> 00:11:52

said to him, he said, Tell your people that the agenda is that in general, the land is fertile, the water is sweet, tell them but they have to plant the trees they have to plant the gardens. And he said what is the Where? He said sumana lies a tree or hungry lies a tree, a lot more of the tree Lie, lie lie the tree. This is the meaning. So all the work we do the seeker of Allah Tierra del Cora, a karma de Sala of fasting, Hajj, Amara, right, all of these things, all the charity we do all the people we help all the poor, all all those who we feed, everything is an investment. Now the point I'm making here is do we see that as an investment? Or do we see that as a cash outflow? Not

00:11:52--> 00:12:20

that is the main problem, right? Do you see it as an investment? Or do you see it as a cash outflow, because if you see it as a cash outflow, believe me, your hand will always be constrained? Because you will feel Oh, I'm losing something. Even though I have good intentions, even though I want to be charitable, even though I want to please Allah. NET NET, I'm thinking I'm losing something. So my hand will be constrained. But if I'm investing, if I see

00:12:21--> 00:12:52

is that what is that spending is not losing something, it is gaining something because an investment is that which gives you a return, right? What is the difference between an expense and investment and expect both or both both involve cash outflows and expenses? A cash outflow and investment is a cash outflow. But which one will any person who has any understanding of finance with any vision who has any understanding of of, you know planning for the future? what we look for? is you want to know,

00:12:54--> 00:13:19

which is which expenditure? Or which is just a pure cost? Or is it going to look for a way in which this cash can be spent the same amount of money Zim, you know, $100 $10 $1,000 $100,000 million dollars, whatever, right? The same money? That person is going to say, No, no, I'm not going to just give it away. I am going to spend his money in a way where the money for me

00:13:20--> 00:14:06

There's a wonderful book called Rich Dad Poor Dad and I read it was 20 years ago or more Rich Dad, Poor Dad read that read he's, he talks about how the thinking is different. He said, What is it that makes the children of millionaires and which and which almost ensures that the children of people who are within quotes middle class employees, just perpetuate and replicate their parents lives? What is it, he said, has nothing to do with the amount of resources you have? It has to do with how you view money and how you view your expenses. He said that people who are who become millionaires a winner are the people who

00:14:08--> 00:14:52

ensure that that thing earns for them. They never do any just dead expenditure measured by something that that is sitting in the garage or sitting in the closet or sitting on their shelf or something, and it's doing nothing for them, is it everything they spend is something which earns them something so if I'm spending $1,000, that $1,000 is earning me something right. So that is the difference. Now my bond is digging into the Acura what is our what is our concept of the Acura because any investment is based on what it's based on belief in and reliance upon and trusting the person or individual or entity that we are investing with. So what do you look for there? You look first of

00:14:52--> 00:14:58

all to see what is the rate of return on that investment? And secondly, you look for how sure is that that is the reason why for example,

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

government bonds get a lot of investors even though the return on the government bond is much less than the return on the stock market because people generally even though the return is less the bond is guaranteed by the government and therefore this is a something which I can trust you just won't disappear one day but the stock exchange in the stock exchange you know is up one day down one day and then I end up I might and I might get a big return but I might end up losing all my money that's where for example you know what what what is if somebody's putting in gambling Why is gambling haram because there is no there is no guarantee on that return.

00:15:39--> 00:15:52

So therefore we are saying I've been when we look at worldly affairs, we like to and sensible thing is to say I want to invest so that I can get a return on what I'm now take to the

00:15:53--> 00:15:58

charity for example, but how do you view the expenditure of my time?

00:16:02--> 00:16:41

How am I spending that 24 hours? am I spending it in a way which is getting me a return with Allah subhanho wa Taala or just going away? Right, I've got two hours these two hours What do I do? Do I sit in front of the television and I watch some some football game or or basketball game or tennis game or whatever right? Okay, fine. So I watched that game and well a product has you know what we end up also watching thanks to you know, the fashions and thanks to whatever people are wearing and whatnot when you're watching those games I won't go into that but I'm saying that that is also part of the you know, this I know this I mean, you know, we don't have to mince words and and be polite

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

about that. But that is one option. Right? So is it

00:16:45--> 00:17:00

this is your two hours right? But just think about that if that two hours molecule Mark came to you and your breath is going and said you know that that game you watch to Wimbledon or US Open that two hours I'll give you now right and tell me what I will pay for that

00:17:01--> 00:17:30

just before you're going to die right you won't die but instead of right now I'll come back two hours later and in that two hours do whatever you like you know praise Allah whatnot to ensure that you are lying so Jude so that your your soul is extracted in a state of so that you can do all of that because you got these two hours right specific two hours now, but it won't come for free. You are paid for it. What will you pay? What is your answer? What will be your answer? What would be my answer? Today you have that two hours free nobody's asking for anything.

00:17:31--> 00:17:39

nobody's asking for anything. What are you doing with those two hours? returns I'm not talking about ROI inshallah you will not what I'm saying even among the halaal

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

Hello God Allah Talia boo boo, calm

00:17:45--> 00:17:45

Allah.

00:17:47--> 00:18:13

Allah we have greater depth in life so that we can choose to see which one of you will do the best deed Allah did not say we will test you to see who will do the good deed and who will do the bad deed No, it is not expected from the Muslim that he will do bad deeds but in the good deeds which is the better deal which is the investment which is a dead expenditure. So about two hours one option do that. Another option is something worthwhile.

00:18:18--> 00:18:21

I think even if you're not in the car, Anil Kareem

00:18:22--> 00:18:25

read something useful, beneficial that adds value to you.

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

Even if you're watching television, what something which adds value to you.

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

When you learn something new, you can look at the for example, watching planet Earth.

00:18:40--> 00:18:49

I believe that watching programs like like and are not promoting BBC, I'm saying that watching programs like Planet Earth and you know all these nature

00:18:50--> 00:18:59

related programs is really valid is Vicar if you're watching it with that intention and with that frame of mind where you're looking at the

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

end.

00:19:06--> 00:19:06

Yes.

00:19:13--> 00:19:38

Allah Allah Allah, Oh beautiful is this. This is reka Hollander, Ella and hamdulillah Yes, it draws your mind to saying you know what is it that I am doing for example, I will last for the reminder you would have heard preparing for the winter. I was saying there that we might my daily walks and now that we are in fall, and you can see that bush behind me is turning turning color.

00:19:39--> 00:19:42

In the coming few days you will see it become completely red.

00:19:43--> 00:20:00

One of the things I noticed is a lot of squirrels who are busy getting nuts and burying them all over the place. Right? Because they know that winter's coming they will short of food. So they are preparing for that. Right? Yeah. So do you find them boring and beautiful.

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

The beauty of this is that a lot of those knots including acorns, which for example, which are the seeds of oak trees, these squirrels bury, and then the squirrels forget where they're buried. They forget some of them and those that they forget they grow into trees. So so the the, the planter of the oak, think about a look at a look at a huge oak and say Swan Lake Walla Walla, maybe this oak was planted by a squirrel,

00:20:25--> 00:20:48

literally quite quite literally, his fault was planted by a squirrel. So Alhamdulillah they prepare because they know it is coming, we know that is coming, we know the X ray is coming up, what is our preparation? Because we have converted this into a, you know, into a into an intellectual concept. We like to talk about it, but do we really is it real for us?

00:20:50--> 00:21:00

So that is the reason why we need to work we need to do work. And that's what I'm saying. Ask yourself this question investment where there's time where there's money, is it Do you see this as a

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

net cost? Or do you see it as an investment?

00:21:05--> 00:21:11

Here, who is the guarantor of the investment in the akhira? Allah subhanho wa Taala himself

00:21:13--> 00:21:15

right, Allah Himself

00:21:16--> 00:21:19

complete and total control, who has Allah subhanaw taala.

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

analyzer add the list? Absolutely.

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

Man jabil has a knotty father who is

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

the one who comes with one good deed I will give him 10 like that.

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

reward is 10 times that.

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

Less than that is not doesn't get with Allah subhanaw taala what is 10 times

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

what time is 10

00:21:50--> 00:22:00

so part part one, you are getting 10 for 100, you're getting 1010 times

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

and I got a job this.

00:22:07--> 00:22:12

So now the more I put there, the more I can look forward to when I meet him.

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

We keep track of that.

00:22:17--> 00:22:40

Anybody who's doing any kind of investment, whether it is store, exchange, whatever keeps track of that, you have a document and you say okay, this is on this date, I invested so much in these stocks. And then I watched this in the housing stock performing is going up going down what's happening now that is COVID. Now there's this now there's that economic upturn downturn, how's my stock doing? Should I keep it resell it? I mean, we do all of this right.

00:22:42--> 00:22:57

Now with respect to Allah subhanaw taala What are we doing? Obviously, you're not going to skip and skip it and sell it and so forth. But definitely you're looking at the stock to say that our hamdulillah This is the stock that I have and I am investing with Allah and Allah is giving me 10 times the reward

00:22:59--> 00:22:59

10 times river

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

what is that we want

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

to ask you, let us get real with our lives.

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

Right.

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

Let us ask ourselves, what is it that we

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

are looking forward to and what you're looking forward to is?

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

That is the only thing which is absolutely certain in

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

everything else will be healthy? Will I be sick? Will I be you know, wealthy? Will I be poor? What will happen to me what will not happen to me Everything is up and yet everything is uncertain. Things are nice. I will meet Allah one day.

00:23:42--> 00:23:46

What is my preparation for that? I want to narrate for you

00:23:48--> 00:23:53

to remind myself a new, beautiful Hadees which is in January tirmidhi.

00:23:54--> 00:24:16

On the authority of Mark bingeable obalon. Who, who said, I asked. I said Yasser Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, please tell me of an act, which will take me into Jannah and which will keep me away from the not from the fire mob in Devon, Mr.

00:24:17--> 00:24:26

Raja lon, who was a Ansari Sahabi he was a zombie from Medina. He was one of the

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

he was one of the young men on the Sahaba

00:24:32--> 00:24:44

I'm delighted, Omar, you know, all of these people have the language right. These are all the youth these were young people. Who are the new young people. These are the youth.

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

Sorry, somebody just came so me.

00:24:51--> 00:24:55

And these were the special students also.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

And madmen celandine Central

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

Come on the governor and as

00:25:03--> 00:25:05

of your mentor, he was a very special person

00:25:07--> 00:25:50

in terms of his closeness to the prophets of Salaam and his relationship with Him surviving Giovanna delana says that I asked him this question I said jasola Salah, please give me a Tell me and act which will take me into Jana and keep me away from the jahannam which will keep me which will take me into into Jana and keep me away from an R, which is Johanna, and as well as herself and then Reese responded. So first he said, You have asked me about a great matter. So now this was the way of teaching the sources and had that if somebody asked him a question, I would first appreciate the question itself.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

In one in another Hudis,

00:25:55--> 00:26:43

one of those I have yet one of the ladies she gave and she asked him a question. And I was sitting with with some Saba around him. Before he answered, I said, Did you listen to that question? What a beautiful question. And what a beautiful question she has asked. So this was his way he used to, used to comment people used to appreciate them before he asked the question before you answer the so he said to him, Jamar Do you have asked me about a great matter yet, it is easy for him for whom Allah makes it easy. So the first lesson we learn is a llama la sala de la vida de la la there is nothing easy except that which you make easy so we ask Allah subhanaw taala for this and we are we

00:26:43--> 00:26:49

make darn sure Allah please make it easy for me to earn your pleasure

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

can make it easy.

00:26:52--> 00:27:01

So he said that it's easy for yet it's easy. You've asked me about a great matter. Yet it is easy for him for whom Allah subhanaw taala makes it

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

and then Allah

00:27:05--> 00:27:15

says first and foremost is their worship Allah without associating any partners with him. My brother and sister everything begins with the head.

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

Everything good begins with the head everything evil begins with

00:27:21--> 00:27:42

everything. God begins with us worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, without ascribing any partners to him. And everything evil begins with joining partners with Allah Subhana Allah. So let us make sure that we never come and shoot in sha Allah in any form. One of the ways of committing schilke is to show off before people

00:27:43--> 00:28:24

let's not do that also. Another way of committing here is to follow our desires, instead of following the orders of Allah Subhana Allah. So don't need only a matter of buying before idols. I won't do that, but we do other things. So let us not do that. So the first thing he said was sallallahu Sallam worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without associating any partners with him. Second one, he says is establish the salah, establish the prayer. He didn't say do it, read it, you know, make it known. establish the Salah. Third one, he said pay zakat, right? He's talking about another pillar of Islam pay zakat. Number four, he said fast in Ramadan. And number five, he said, Make Hajj

00:28:24--> 00:28:48

to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he said, having mentioned the five pillars of Islam, because everything has to start from the foundation. If the pillars themselves are faulty, then we are not going to get anywhere. So we start from the foundation, we start from the pillars, then he says Our solemn, he says Shall I not guide you towards the means of goodness?

00:28:49--> 00:29:29

Shall I not guide you towards the means of goodness, this is another way of the teaching officer sallam, he would ask a question to get the attention of the person before he answered that question to he didn't just tell them do this do that. He says Shall I tell you away? Shall I tell you a way to keep you safe from the Hellfire? Shall I tell you a way to earn the pleasure of Allah? He would ask this question, right? And then people obviously their attention would be focused there was a yes jasola Please tell us then he would tell them whatever he had to tell them. So he said Shall I not guide you towards the means of goodness. And then he said fasting is a shield.

00:29:30--> 00:29:59

Fasting is a shield it shields us from the anger of Allah subhanaw taala he said charity wipes away sin as water extinguishes the fire. What is the fire the fire is the anger of Allah. Charity cools the fire of the anger of Allah. So he said fasting is a shield. Charity wipes away his sin, as water extinguishes fire and the brain of a man in the depths of the night.

00:30:01--> 00:30:15

Just the huddle he said the praying of a person in the dead of the night the depths of the night and then he decided in the top sort of that that the Jaffa you know boom Manila massage area Drona bomb COVID

00:30:16--> 00:31:18

me Morocco moon behold Fatah munaf sama ofI Allah home, min karate Ion jazza Bhima kanaya Malone, he said, and he decided the iron the meaning of witches, those who forsake door their beds, to invoke the rub between fear and hope, by nl Sophie were Tama and they spend they spend in the path of Allah charity out of what we have bestowed on them. No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do. And this is the 16th and 17 in Surah, dosa and then he said, shall I inform you of the head of the matter? Its pillar and its peak and more admin jamala Delano says, Yes, Yara. So I said, Yes. jasola. Please inform. He said, the head of the matter is Islam.

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

Its pillar is Salah, and its peak is Jihad visa v de la. And then he said, shall I not tell you of the foundation of all of that? And I said, Yes, Yasser Allah. So he took hold of his tongue

00:31:36--> 00:32:24

like this. And he said, restrain this restraint, this madman, Jamal Delano says, I asked him I said, jasola will we be taken to account for what we say with it? He sallallahu Sallam said, anything that throws in people into the fire upon their faces, or their noses, except the harvest of their tongues. As a male mother be deprived is like a it's like a it's like a reprimand but very loving, reprimand. It's not a curse or anything. So Alicia solemn says to him, more had been developed around jasola we he held his tongue salasar Aggie, and he said, restaurant and this restaurant this and so nahi selasa might be in Java,

00:32:25--> 00:33:14

Arizona, will we be taken with Allah chorus to account? Will Allah hold us accountable? For what we speak? Is it only the deeds or even with what we speak? The vision as Adam said, marry your mother we believed of you Omar, is there anything else that throws people into the NA into the fire of janam upon their faces, and all their Moses, except the harvest of their tongues? sisters, so Allah I mean, the the Hadees or sources lm, the teachings of beloved prophet SAW Selim, there is, is an origin of meaning in this ocean of meaning in this. So what do we learn from this? First and foremost we learn in this, the lesson we learned is the desire to learn, earn and desire to gain

00:33:14--> 00:33:38

knowledge in order to practice it, right. This whole thing began because we had been asked a question, if he had not asked this question, nothing would happen. But asked a question. And what was his question? He didn't teach me a good way of business do this do that? No, he said my accurate my accurate. So the first and foremost lesson we learned from this is the focus on the

00:33:40--> 00:33:48

tomato javelins rather than who is asking rubbish or salami saying please teach me something, which will save me on in the era when I made a loss.

00:33:49--> 00:34:09

So the first and foremost thing we learn is the desire to learn and that desire must be focused on the Acura because that is surety, it is the proof of our image, what is the proof of event that we believe in the market that we believe that we will be resurrected remember, this was the thing which was the most difficult thing for the most economical to accept.

00:34:10--> 00:34:48

So that is the first thing we learn. Then, the next thing we learn is what the next thing we learn is the importance of the variety is the importance of the archive of Islam, that a lot of people get very, you know, taken away by all kinds of extra stuff, you know, they do making this work. The fact that this HELOC on this day that HELOC on that day, believe me all of that is fine. Provided your foundation is strong. All of these are the other decorations for the house. But if the foundation itself if the pillars themselves are not there, that house is going to collapse.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

Right so all of the rest of the stuff will not work unless the foundation is strong. So focus on the foundation. What is the state of my aqeedah

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Amen. Do I have sherkin it? Do I am I establishing Salah not as praying when I feel like praying no

00:35:08--> 00:35:21

establishing Salah is Salah, my stand the central thing in my life, everything else revolves around it, all my programs for Salah then everything else number three fasting in Ramadan number four paying zakat.

00:35:22--> 00:35:27

Number five, if Allah has given me the ability to make Hajj at least once in my lifetime

00:35:28--> 00:35:34

Am I establishing these things are these strong and firm and powerful in my life?

00:35:35--> 00:35:40

Because this is the foundation, if this is not there, all the rest of it is fluff.

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

So is this established? Now once this is established inshallah

00:35:46--> 00:35:49

then we go to the next.

00:35:52--> 00:35:55

Right, and as soon as as Adam said, Islam is the head of the matter.

00:35:57--> 00:35:59

Now this Islam is the head of the matter.

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

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us this. And then Salam said, Salah is the pillar.

00:36:09--> 00:36:11

And jihad is the peak,

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

struggling in the path of

00:36:15--> 00:36:17

fighting for justice,

00:36:18--> 00:36:20

standing up against oppressors

00:36:21--> 00:36:31

standing up for the weak, raising a voice against oppressors who are oppressing people. And remember, it doesn't matter whether they're Muslim or non

00:36:32--> 00:36:37

Muslim is one who stands up against the oppressor no matter who the oppressor is including another Muslim

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

masala Sallam said

00:36:41--> 00:36:45

in a famous for this reason, as Adam said, and this is again his his way of teaching.

00:36:46--> 00:37:11

He used an Arab proverb. The other problem was support your brother whether he is right or wrong, meaning that He is my brother in my tribe. And so no matter what he's doing, I will support it. So as soon as as lm use the same thing. He said to the Sahaba support your brother's, whether he is right or wrong.

00:37:12--> 00:37:27

Now, since this is coming from the province of SLM this I've asked the question Is he Arizona? We understand we support the brother if he is right, but how do we support him when he's wrong? He said support him by holding his hand.

00:37:28--> 00:37:44

support him by arresting him support him by stopping his oppression. Because if you don't do that, if you do not stop him, then he will be held accountable by Allah subhanho wa Taala and he will be punished and that will be very bad for him.

00:37:45--> 00:37:52

So you love your brother, you don't want him to burn in hell fire. So stop what he's doing which is wrong.

00:37:54--> 00:37:56

Right, this is the meaning of judges ability.

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

It's not conquering countries and, and and killing people or whatnot.

00:38:02--> 00:38:12

Yet visa Vila is to struggle in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah Japheth amela also is to struggle with yourself

00:38:13--> 00:38:16

to have control over your own knifes

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

to change your habits,

00:38:21--> 00:38:25

to go from being negatively oriented to becoming positively oriented

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

to be concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

and not simply be focused on pleasure of ourselves.

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

All of these things amount to Jeff has to be let in charge

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

for each one,

00:38:44--> 00:38:46

what is difficult for him

00:38:48--> 00:38:53

the struggle is proportionate. The struggle is dependent on the individual.

00:38:55--> 00:38:59

What is difficult for you is not necessarily for me

00:39:01--> 00:39:09

and like yourself. And the whole point is to do that which is difficult not for the heck of it but because that

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

way will be the last.

00:39:14--> 00:39:32

So therefore my brothers and sisters I asked myself when I remind myself I knew that I was teaching this to the museum. And the final thing which is that when I think about that, the final thing is we just said to him is not to do with your body is not to do with aqeedah

00:39:34--> 00:39:45

it's not is nothing to do with the love of the Koran or Salah or hijo de god no, it is to do with the people it is to do with a bad

00:39:47--> 00:39:50

he held his tongue like this. And he said restrain this.

00:39:52--> 00:39:53

By that doesn't mean do less zero.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

restraint and Meaning what? restrain your tongue from doing what Allah has

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

emitted. restrain your tongue from the lever from backbiting people restrain your tongue from slander

00:40:08--> 00:40:18

from from from watan restrain your tongue from Mima for casting aspersions on people restrain your tongue from telling lies

00:40:20--> 00:40:28

the rest in your tongue from useless talk which has no value it's not like anything which is worthless stuff like for example we sit and talk about politics right?

00:40:30--> 00:40:38

continuously deliver hours upon hours on politics Oh this one is doing that that one is doing that this king What is the use of that?

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

is absolutely worthless talk

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

about politics.

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

restrain your tongue from all of this negative stuff.

00:40:54--> 00:41:01

And then he says when what bingeable other are asking Allah will this be detrimental for me is it Allah will hold me accountable?

00:41:03--> 00:41:06

It's like a hammer on the head. He says one law he said this

00:41:08--> 00:41:11

puts more people into jahannam Anything else?

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

Imagine this.

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

You didn't kill anybody.

00:41:18--> 00:41:31

Right? You didn't stab anybody in the back. But because of your time because you backtalk somebody because you cast aspersions on somebody because you blame somebody, you know, unjustifiably

00:41:33--> 00:41:44

that gets trotted up in your account. And that person's bad deeds come to you and your good deeds go to that person. And if you ever run out of all good deeds and you just collect the bad deeds,

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

my brothers sisters I remind myself

00:41:52--> 00:41:55

that us wake up before we are woken up.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

The day will come when we will be woken up.

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

Let's not wait for that day

00:42:02--> 00:42:16

to ensure that we get up and we do what we are supposed to do. And that we are not taken by surprise. When molecule mouth comes because the most expected thing in life is death.

00:42:18--> 00:42:19

It's not unexpected.

00:42:20--> 00:42:25

It is not unexpected except for the one who is living in complete.

00:42:28--> 00:42:35

debt is unexpected only for the one who is living as if he will never die. And there is only one whenever dies and that is a loss.

00:42:37--> 00:42:41

Are you lazy liar mode is by Rob jealous. Nobody else

00:42:43--> 00:42:47

ever everybody dies in so virgin Yamato

00:42:48--> 00:42:55

every person every created thing couldn't have seen the cartoon mode.

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

kulu Manali, have

00:42:59--> 00:43:02

you ever watch that because we've dealt with

00:43:04--> 00:43:37

a brother or sister that remembers when you let us live our lives in a way which is positive in a way which we strive to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and let us consider all our actions, our expenditure, our time, energy, money, consider it and look upon it as investment because that is what it is. It is investment in Sharla treated like investment, and it will give you a beautiful return. masala Helena will curry Malati wasabi mango Rama
