kilohana Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala shuffelin ba ba mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa sahbihi wa sallam. Cassia abajo, my dear brothers and sisters, and the law, this is

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

we are in fall in the United States. I've been here a full year now.

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

And we are back to the season in which we came here

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

last year and fall,

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

fall is a absolutely fabulous time to see the holder of Allah subhanaw taala. in all its glory and majesty.

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

And of course, until we see winter, and then we see a different version of the whole lot of Allah subhanaw taala also in his glory and majesty, and this is true for the whole year. The signs are lots of anatella spread around us, and the surround us and we are in the midst of them and we are in we are completely immersed in them.

00:01:02--> 00:01:13

And we thank Allah subhanaw taala for the state of being for this situation where we are in the midst of the glory and magnificence of the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala diligent

00:01:15--> 00:01:27

one of the signs of the loss of data is is this season fall season autumn season, in this part of the world, in the in the northern parts of the United States, and going further up into Canada, and so on,

00:01:28--> 00:01:37

which is the change of the colors of the leaves. This year, we had a summer which was unusually hot, and it was unusually dry.

00:01:38--> 00:02:06

One of the downsides of that was that the colors were not as vivid as they normally are. Those of you watching this video, you might be thinking to yourself, well, these leaves we had me I mean, what more vivid can they get. But believe me, this is still very, very beautiful. But they become it's almost like they are on fire. And that's this is the name of this bush, it's called the burning bush

00:02:08--> 00:02:16

becomes completely and totally this color, red and then when the leaf drops off,

00:02:17--> 00:02:42

it has little red berries which remain on the leaf. And they stay through the winter is despite all the snow and so on and so forth. And they are the food for the returning migratory birds, which come back in spring. Alice Mandela's design and his system is arranged for all his creatures, so that they are provided

00:02:43--> 00:02:52

at all times, in their in their lives. As I'm talking to you, I can see a couple of Blue Jays which are

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

which are

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

looking for berries and webs and so on

00:03:01--> 00:03:38

the the American Robin's have gone. One of the I look forward to welcoming him back perhaps in spring, if I'm still here, and the very, very beautiful, you know, I call that the darker bird, the one which of course all all the animals and birds everything as the ordinary Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala because Allah says you suddenly hula him if he saw a tomato, let's say that whatever is the heavens in the earth, praises Allah subhanaw taala and thanks Allah subhanaw taala but the Robin has to be among the best of them and the foremost of them

00:03:40--> 00:03:49

because you can see them, you can hear them you know, making bigger and thinking and singing the praises of Allah subhanaw taala even into the night.

00:03:50--> 00:03:59

This is the first bar to start off in the morning while it's still dark and is the last one to stop even after it's dark. So it's a very beautiful bird.

00:04:00--> 00:04:33

And the rest of the time it spends digging out earthworms and then raising its young, we had here this summer pair of Robins which raised to the roots in the sameness the reuse the nest and the raise two sets of chicks. And we had a whole lot of starlings which raised I think also to brood so the probably maybe 1516 young starlings which call this place home. Maybe more.

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

Now we are seeing more of the

00:04:39--> 00:04:48

the tip mouse's the black capped chickadees all of those seem to be now coming into their own because they are

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

they are the

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

the ones we stay here throughout winter. It's an amazing hotel, the walls valterra displays can get extremely cold it can become mean temperatures go

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

onto you know, in some years they've gone down to minus 20 and with a windchill factor it can be several degrees less. So extremely, extremely cold. But in in that core, this little birds, they are out there they are full of energy. You see them coming to the feeder boxes and it is no feeder box a lot around data providers. I mean, we earn the

00:05:27--> 00:06:09

Dwyer of the bird inshallah and the pleasure of Allah insha Allah by providing food for them and providing water for them in the summer but Allah is not dependent on us. Allies feelings burden is taking care of them. And even though you might provide them some food What about the cold I mean, you know, they they don't make nests. It's interesting to note that birds build nests only to raise young, they do not build nests to stay warm and, and go through winter and so on and so forth. So the here is the you know, the truth is winter. It's amazing people talk about aliens, and they say no is the other aliens in the in space in on other planets and whatnot. Are there any alien species,

00:06:09--> 00:06:53

as I said to people that are aliens right here are up there called birds. They're called insects, even more alien than birds. Right going to the seas, you will find aliens that that you can't even imagine if somebody at least, let me not cast aspersions on your imagination. But if anyone gave me a pen and paper and said, draw your freakiest creature that you can think of, believe me, I couldn't draw the kinds of creatures freaky or not, which actually exists, they exist and they thrive and they multiply and so on. This is these are aliens. Right now we are suffering the effect of one of these aliens called the COVID-19 the Coronavirus

00:06:55--> 00:07:12

which is Allah knows is it even a living being it's a it's literally a cord, it's a it's a DNA cord that is being written to sue as it encounters the encounter suitable conditions

00:07:15--> 00:07:31

primarily in your in your nose and mouth, it starts its work. So that's one big reason for covering the nose and mouth and remember, the mask is not here and the mask is up here. It's here completely covering the nose and mouth. And this is very, very critical, very, very important.

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

In our lesson on leaving Islam,

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

today I want to talk to you about one of the

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

extremely important I had this

00:07:46--> 00:07:56

which is again the beauty of the teaching of Rasul Allah, so solemn that everything, the most important, the most fundamental,

00:07:58--> 00:08:05

the most critical matters resources, Allah had his way of explaining them in a way that is

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

that is so simple and so clear.

00:08:12--> 00:08:53

Now, what can be more critical and more fundamental than what is Heller? And what is it what is what is what is permissible and what is not permissible. The reason why it is such so fundamental and critical is because the Haram and Allah Allah has been decreed by Allah subhana wa Taala. himself. And so if somebody is doing Hara hamdulillah he or she is following the order of Allah subhanaw taala and they can look forward to a reward from Allah subhanaw taala but if somebody deliberately does Haram, I'm not talking about mistakes I'm not talking about without knowledge. I'm not talking about you know, transgressions of that kind I'm talking about deliberately, knowingly, you know,

00:08:53--> 00:09:32

something is haram and you still do it, then this amounts to denying the hokum of Allah in our lives and May Allah protect us this could be seen as cofre as the denial of Allah subhanaw taala himself so knowingly we know that alcohol is prohibited but we drink we know that gambling is prohibited when we go and we gamble and we bet on horses and dogs and we play cards for money. You know, all kinds of card games for money, all forms of gambling, no matter what it is, all forms of intoxicants no matter what it is, whether it is alcohol, whether it is drugs, whether it's marijuana with whatever it is.

00:09:34--> 00:09:52

We know this is haram, but we still do that we still partake of it. We make some excuse or the other, but we still do and that is not a mistake. It's not that we didn't know that we know it perfectly well. But we still do it like prohibited Xena II prohibited adultery, may Allah protect us but we still do that.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

And last matter privated interest based dealings which Allah subhanaw taala among all the other things are lost.

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

Around Intel as far as interest base dealings are concerned Allah subhanaw taala declared war on the one who indulges in interest based dealings. Now, what can be more critical than that? That Allah subhanaw taala declares war on the one who deals in interest who either borrows on interest or lend on interest, what is more critical than having Allah subhanaw taala declare war on you and your action. Yet, we do it knowingly we go and we sign deals with banks and we borrow money and we do other sisters please.

00:10:39--> 00:10:50

Allah subhanho della della della Who is the most forgiving, he's the most merciful, but also he is one who punishes and punishes very severely.

00:10:51--> 00:10:56

Shadi De Luca waka foto Rahim. Both the

00:10:57--> 00:11:07

Allsop and the sifat of Allah subhanaw taala. And therefore, it's very, very important for us to ensure that we do not play games with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:11:09--> 00:11:23

That we obey him completely and totally, without question not because we are blind, but because we are seeing, because we are, we can see we are seeing we are

00:11:24--> 00:12:05

we know who Allah subhanaw taala is, we believe in the meeting with him. We look forward to that meeting. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make that meeting, the best meeting of our lives. And this is the reason why we obey Allah subhanaw taala we OBEY Him because we know him. We don't obey him without knowing there is no blind obedience in Islam, there is obedience with the knowledge, the knowledge of who Allah subhanaw taala is understanding and accepting some very fundamental things, you know, sometimes I say these things I feel, I feel a bit foolish. And I don't want to I don't want you to feel that I stating the obvious. But really, some questions I think we have to ask

00:12:05--> 00:12:14

ourselves, even though it might you might feel foolish asking that question to yourself, I think it's good that you ask it yourself, rather than have this question asked to you.

00:12:15--> 00:12:31

When you already know, the question to ask yourself is, who knows more? Me? Or Allah? Number one, number two, who is more intelligent may or Allah? Who can think better? Number three, who has knowledge

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

of the future?

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

Right, who has knowledge of the future? Me or Allah?

00:12:38--> 00:12:51

Who knows what is good and what is not good? Now one who created me or miss me myself? It's very good for us to ask ourselves these questions. Because if we look at some of the things we do,

00:12:54--> 00:13:01

the thing that comes to mind is the question we have to then we are forced to ask is, what does this person thinks he's doing?

00:13:02--> 00:13:37

A for example, somebody who borrows money from the bank for his or her business. Now, here is a Muslim, the practicing Muslim or Angela prays five times a day goes for Juma pay zakat in Ramadan, they fast because Allah give the money they make Amara they make they do all of this, but at the same time, they borrow money on interest. They know it is wrong. They know Allah declared war on the person on his behalf and on behalf of Rasulullah Salah on the person who

00:13:38--> 00:13:47

borrows money or who lends money on interest. And knowing this, they still go and they sign that document and they borrow the money.

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

The part that comes in mind comes to mind is what does what is this person thinking?

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

What is this person thinking?

00:13:58--> 00:14:12

Do they think that they know better than Allah? do their thing that they are more powerful than Allah? Do the thing that in this war that they have accepted? The declaration of war that they've accepted, they think they will win?

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

Or is it that they really do not believe in a lot or

00:14:18--> 00:14:36

they do not believe in the Day of Judgment. So all of this fasting and Nomura and Hajj and salah and so on is a sham? It's a joke. It's a it's a game. It is, you know, well, you know, in going to Las Vegas, I have overheads, but a hedge made with harmony.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

Is it acceptable to Allah?

00:14:41--> 00:14:47

And Allah made with harmony. Is there sakata harmony? If your income is from haram sources, is there Zakat on that?

00:14:49--> 00:14:58

See that is really I'm saying, Please don't fool yourself. We don't have time my brother and sisters, believe me. We are. That's why I'm sitting in front of this bush.

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

If I don't freeze to death, maybe even when the leaves are all gone, I'll do a video in front of this bush again so you can see what I mean by by death. As well as you heal another bada Mota, Allah subhanho wa Taala brings the earth back to live after it dies. And truly, you can actually see that in these. In these latitudes in these climates, you don't see them see this in the tropics, really, even in the summer. Everything is not completely dead, you can still see lots of signs of life, but here in the winter, it's completely dead. trees look like they're never going to come back to life again. And then come spring, you find every single twig has a flower on it and in summer, every

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

single trigger is a leaf on it.

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

So the point I want to make for you is that

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

ask these fundamental questions to yourself.

00:15:59--> 00:16:05

Do not die in a state where you have been deliberately doing haram

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

whatever you have been doing till today Alhamdulillah. There is a good news which is that Allah subhanaw taala said that he will forgive it. Whatever it is,

00:16:17--> 00:16:24

Allah did not put anything on it. Allah said whatever in the law ha young Pharaoh unova Jeremy and

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

verily and truly Allah subhanaw taala forgives all sins.

00:16:32--> 00:16:59

sins of omission what you should have done you did not do Allah will forgive sins of commission what you should not have done you did you make is the far you make Toba? You seek forgiveness, Allah subhanaw taala will forgive you. If the sin that you committed was our nature, which where you hurt somebody else, where you oppress somebody else where you took away somebody is right, then the condition for Allah subhanho wa Taala is forgiveness is that you make amends to that person who you hurt.

00:17:01--> 00:17:27

So go and apologize, go and ask them to forgive you. If there is anything material involved, if you need to give something back to them, give it back to them, give them some more, compensate them for whatever it is that you did, but Alhamdulillah insha Allah once you have done that, Allah subhanaw taala forgives every single sin that you and I may have committed mela civil from sins.

00:17:29--> 00:18:00

But what do you say to the person who knows all of this? Who knew it was wrong before he did it? He did not stop himself. He still did it. Even after he did it, he knew he was doing wrong, but he continued to do it. And even after that, he knew that he has a robber who forgives but he never asked him for forgiveness. And then he dies in that state. In alila, here in LA Raja mela, save us from that kind of life and May Allah save us from that kind of death.

00:18:01--> 00:18:11

Right. So I want to say to you I want to remind you today about his beautiful hobbies narrated by Norman membership, or the Allahu anhu

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

which is in sable slim.

00:18:20--> 00:18:33

So, he pointed to his fingers, no man in the machine of Elano. He pointed to his fingers like this with both his hands. And he said I heard so ly so solemn, saying what is lawful is clear.

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

What is unlawful is clear.

00:18:38--> 00:18:52

What is halal is clear. What is haram is clear. Allah Allah Allah baiyun while haram obion, verbena, Houma, mustafi hot. So, he said what is

00:18:53--> 00:19:05

permissible and lawful is clear and what is not permissible and unlawful is clear. And between them are the mooster we had between them are the

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

doubtful things.

00:19:10--> 00:19:51

And then he said, woman worker official who bought worker Phil harm. And he said that many people do not know this. So he said he who guards against the doubtful things, keeps his religion an honor, blameless. But he who indulges in doubtful things, indulges, in fact, in haraam, indulges, in fact, in unlawful things, just as a shepherd, who pastures his animals around a preserve will soon pasture them in it.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

Beware, every king has a preserve, which is called Hema and Allah subhanho wa Taala is Hema

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

Those things he has made Haram. Beware, in the body, there is a piece of flesh. If it is sound, the whole body is sound. And if it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. And indeed, that is, it is the heart.

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

So Muslim, the famous Hadith, which I'm sure

00:20:25--> 00:21:15

I'm sure all of us have heard many times, now, as several very important things in his hobbies. The first and foremost is to understand that this is the teaching of rosewood lies in a solemn and solos are seldom received what he in two ways. One is what we call vehement law, which is the way that is recited the tilava is where he is done in Salah, and that is the Quran. And the other form of what he that he received is called ye avire motlow The ye that is not recited in the Salah. And this is what we know as the hubby's of also Salah Holly Sal, though that is the first thing to for us to understand. And remember, second thing and this is what we are being informed by his blessed

00:21:15--> 00:21:43

companion, no one being Bashir or the Allahu anhu. The second thing is to understand is that no one membership of Iran who is saying it in such a powerful way by pointing to is yours and saying I heard Rasul Allah is Allah is and I'm saying this, and this was the way of the narrator's of their hobbies that they were a physical action of the Sahaba isabey narrated the Hadees in a particular way,

00:21:44--> 00:22:05

then they also always, when they edited That is, they will repeat that action as a mark of their love for the way of also lights on a solemn and his hava with one right here limit they may Allah be pleased with all of them. Second thing second and most important thing is that this Hadees as I mentioned earlier refers to

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

one of the most fundamental

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

matters in the

00:22:13--> 00:22:48

which is the matter of halal and haram, what is permissible, and what is not permissible. As I told you, halal and haram is what has been decreed by Allah subhanaw taala. And therefore, the one who is deliberately doing ROM is directly challenging the authority of Allah subhanaw taala it's not a simple matter. It's not a it's not something that can be cut, that can be passed off. You know, many times people think people say, Oh, no, no, no, but you know, I mean, I'm a spiritual person. I'm a I'm a good person, I don't have to follow all these rules and regulations.

00:22:50--> 00:23:36

This is all organized religion, and we hear this a lot from our so called cool friends sophistications and sophisticated creatures. We are I am against organized religion, very nice. I am I don't believe in rituals. Right? So please don't believe what is the change? It changes Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Because somebody was saying I am against organized religion. I'm talking about Islam. If somebody says I'm against organized religion, I'm against rituals, meaning that this person does not consider for example Salah to be necessary, doesn't consider the methodology of Salah to be necessary. He does not believe in the way of making wholesale and Voodoo does not

00:23:36--> 00:24:17

believe in, in the in the other article of Islam, then effectively How is this person a Muslim? Right? Islam is not the name of a race. Islam is not a name of an ethnicity. It's not that in that Indians and subcontinental people are Muslim, or or Arabs are Muslim, anyone who believes in Islam is a Muslim, and to believe in Islam, to be a Muslim, you have to believe in Islam, you don't become Muslim, because you are Arab, or you don't become Muslim, because you are Indian, or Pakistani or Sunni, or, or American, or, you know, or Australia, you become Muslim because you believe in Islam, anybody who believes in Islam, becomes a Muslim, and is a Muslim. So therefore, it is essential for

00:24:17--> 00:24:53

us to understand this. So if someone is saying I don't believe in these rituals and so on, so therefore then what I'm saying because the rituals came from Allah subhanaw taala, Allah subhanaw taala taught us the way to worship him Allah didn't leave it to us as a worship me any way you like, whatever is in your heart do that. No, Allah schmatta showed us a way and that way is called Salah. Now if somebody says No no, I don't pray that's not therefore if you are saying all of these things effectively you're saying that Allah Subhana nows will have wasted his time by teaching all of this he wasted his time by sending profits all this was not necessary. I was enough for it. I mean, I

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

believe in Allah so I will do whatever I think is like,

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

please, just let us not fool ourselves. That is wrong.

00:25:00--> 00:25:47

Live this foolishness, it doesn't help anybody, least of all yourself to get this straight and ensure that we follow this Deen the way just before because we know that Allah knows more than me. Allah understands more than me, Allah is more intelligent than I am. Allah subhanaw taala is the one who prescribes and describes because he is the one who knows what is best. So I'm going to follow what Allah subhanaw taala has shown me, I will do what Allah has told me to do, because I know that is the best for me. So I will do that. That would be believe and act with love and with sincerity and with enthusiasm and not not dragging yourself. So yeah, no one in Bashir Delano is narrating

00:25:47--> 00:25:57

from musallam where he says some very very important thing lamesa salaam is literally putting his finger on the spot. And what is that spot?

00:25:58--> 00:25:58

That's what is

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

that Russell has

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

told us that

00:26:06--> 00:26:51

that no one will be mushy. He told us the nervous system said what is halaal is clear what is haram is clear meaning that people know what is halal. So they will do it people know what is haram so they will not do it. Now as well. I mean, just thinking about this as is alone. I asked myself that today It seems that even the Haram is not clear. Because we know interspace bots borrowing is haram still we do it. So where is it clear? For the people who are who are who are boring on interest. He was asking this question that there is an incentive assume the best about you. And he said that a Muslim will not deliberately do something which is haram. So he's like saying he's saying I don't

00:26:51--> 00:26:54

even have to talk about that. Because I know you won't do it.

00:26:56--> 00:27:14

This is the host reason this is the beautiful assumption of the prophet SAW Salem about us. But today we seem to be bent on proving to him that he that he was wrong. We want to say to Arizona your assumption was wrong. We are not like this. We don't know her up. Yeah, we don't care about her. We'll still do her

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

in LA well.

00:27:18--> 00:27:54

Seriously Seriously, let us let us get our act together. Because we have to go you know remember this this this Coronavirus. I'm telling you we really we should be so grateful to Allah. That Allah subhanaw taala center this reminder which woke up everybody even those who live their lives as if death was not meant for them. Even they have woken up to think that Oh, no, no, no, no, it's going to happen to me can happen to me. Let me do something. But if they are not corrected themselves, then it hasn't helped you. Man it hasn't dealt with true and that is the true calamity. The true calamity is to die in a state of deliberate disobedience. It's not Corona or Sharona or something

00:27:54--> 00:28:03

because one day we die anyway, doesn't matter whether it's cold or whether it's cancer was just the heart just stops or, you know, you meet a buzzer God. I mean, the death is inevitable.

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

That is inevitable.

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

What is not even what is not inevitable is Jana?

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

Why do you want to go there?

00:28:14--> 00:28:31

Why do you want to accept a declaration of war from Allah? subhanaw taala? And what do you think is going to happen? Who is the What do you call the other party in a war in a war situation? The other parties who you help your friend, your confident, your protector?

00:28:32--> 00:28:33

Is that what you call?

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

Or is that your enemy?

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

So if you accept a declaration of war, it means that you have accepted Allah as your enemy. You accepted personalizer solemn as your enemy.

00:28:48--> 00:28:51

Where is the intelligence swala

00:28:53--> 00:29:21

and you see you're educated and you say that you are you know you have your intelligent stuff we're ready to go look in the mirror, go stand in front of the mirror and say I have accepted a declaration of war from Allah. Allah is my enemy, I am the enemy of Allah. I have declared accepted a declaration of war from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam I am the enemy of Rasul Allah, Allah Allah Allah is my enemy say this Joseph c alpha Civ

00:29:23--> 00:29:34

and if it doesn't shake you if he doesn't do something, you know major leave tears don't come out of your eyes. If you're not falling down, then seriously ask yourself do I have ima do even believe in Allah subhanaw taala

00:29:36--> 00:29:51

How can you believe in Allah and accept Allah as the enemy? How can you believe in Mohammed Salah Salem and accept him as the enemy? My brothers sisters we need to Elijah Salam faurecia on the Day of Judgment. I ask Allah to make as soon as an asylum the your Shafi for you

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

to intercede for you inshallah. But you have to be friends with him and he's not going to interview intercede for

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

his enemy,

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

ask Allah to forgive you and to cover you with His mercy.

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

But he might do that to the to his enemy

00:30:12--> 00:30:25

to this beautiful assumption about Islam, so he's saying effectively, I know my people will not do her. So, he said the IRA is clear, the alarm is clear, clear Meaning what? Meaning they will not do it.

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

But he said between these two are the mooster we had,

00:30:31--> 00:30:41

between the Allah Allah Nara, these are the two boundaries. This is the lead boundary, that's the right boundary between the two boundaries. There are matters which are doubtful.

00:30:45--> 00:30:49

And then he said, a wonderful thing. He said that the one

00:30:50--> 00:30:55

who leaves the doubtful for that, which is not doubtful, he's the one on the right path.

00:30:57--> 00:31:01

So if there is something in doubt, don't touch it until the doubt is cleared.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

Once the doubt is cleared, then you know, can I do it? Can I do it?

00:31:07--> 00:31:13

But while it is doubtful, don't go near it. number one. Number two, he said that the one

00:31:14--> 00:31:18

who leaves the doubtful has protected his Eman and his honor.

00:31:20--> 00:31:39

nobody's talking about both. The one who leaves the doubtful thing has protected his email and his honor. But the one who fell into the doubtful thing, the one who holds on to the doubtful thing, the one who stands on the doubtful thing. He's actually standing on her arm.

00:31:40--> 00:31:49

Now why is he saying that? Because we said it's doubtful. We will not say it is haram. We don't know it is haram. But then Mrs. lm is saying

00:31:51--> 00:31:59

the one who stands on that doubtful thing. The one who indulges in doubtful things, indulges, in fact in her

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

you know why? Because why is that thing of?

00:32:05--> 00:32:08

That is doubtful, because we don't know whether Allah allowed it or didn't allow it.

00:32:09--> 00:32:17

Despite that, if you do it, then you are effectively saying I don't care whether Allah allowed it or did not allow it.

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

That is

00:32:21--> 00:32:35

what is haram is to do something that Allah does not like. So if you are saying I don't care, this is not for somebody says, you know, we don't know whether he likes it or doesn't like it. We don't know if this is permitted or prohibited is I don't care. It's okay.

00:32:37--> 00:32:45

Then effectively, you're doing what you're denying the greatness and the glory, and the right of Allah subhanaw taala to make laws.

00:32:47--> 00:32:53

That's the reason why, as Adam said, the one who indulges in the doubtful is actually indulging in Haram.

00:32:54--> 00:33:06

And then he gave a very beautiful example. He gave the example of a shepherd with his flock of sheep or goats. And the shepherd is grazing them close to the boundary of a king.

00:33:08--> 00:33:22

Right, he called is the hammer the preserve. So there is this boundary of the king, the Kings gardens, the kings, you know, lands. And the shepherd is grazing his flock of sheep. And you know what sheep and goats are, you don't know which one goes where

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

they're not on leashes or something.

00:33:25--> 00:33:50

So while the shepherd is sitting there, you know, maybe he's dozing off or something or is tired is lippies attention is diverted. Some one or more of these sheep or goats go into the pasture of the king, they go into the Kings fields, they eat the king's garden up or whatever they do. And tell me when the guards come? Who are they going to catch the shepherd?

00:33:52--> 00:33:58

And they're going to ask him, didn't you see that boundary there? There was that fence, there was that boundary, it was very clear.

00:34:01--> 00:34:09

Yet you allowed your sheep and goats to go into the boundary of the king, even though you knew that this was a culpable offense.

00:34:11--> 00:34:15

So now you are liable for punishment unless the king forgives you your level of punishment.

00:34:19--> 00:34:23

And at that time, the shepherd cannot say I didn't know the boundary because boundaries clear in front of you.

00:34:25--> 00:34:26

This is the problem.

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

And that is the reason why I'm said

00:34:31--> 00:34:42

and then number two, as Alan mentioned, the heart manager that did this there is this organ in the body. If that is healthy, the whole body is healthy. If that is sick, the whole body is sick.

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

He's not a statement about cardiac health

00:34:47--> 00:34:52

is a statement about the the spiritual health of the human being.

00:34:54--> 00:34:57

When you say the heart is healthy, Calvin Saleem, what does it mean?

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

There's a whole series of

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

lectures I did on carbon say,

00:35:02--> 00:35:11

What is the meaning of carbon sending a heart which is, sound, a heart which is pure, a heart which

00:35:13--> 00:35:14

is

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

hard which is

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

content.

00:35:21--> 00:35:27

What is the meaning of a heart which is sound and pure heart which is obedient to Allah subhanaw taala

00:35:28--> 00:35:47

a heart that is not filled with doubt and with the rebellious ness and with all kinds of, you know, problems, spiritual issues, a heart that does not have content weren't and does not have a tawakkol and trust and reliance on Allah subhanaw taala

00:35:50--> 00:35:56

unless it on the Day of Judgment, your money and your children and your wealth and your power and your target, none of this will help you.

00:35:57--> 00:36:00

In laminata law, who will be

00:36:05--> 00:36:09

the person who comes to Allah subhanaw taala with it, your heart kulbhushan

00:36:12--> 00:36:26

saying that the one whose heart is pure, the whole body's pure meaning that if the heart is obedient to Allah subhanaw taala his hands and feet, and his organs and his and his senses, everything, his actions, his speech will be obedient.

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

And if their heart is sick, the whole body is sick.

00:36:33--> 00:36:40

Brother, sisters, this is this, the ultimate sum total of our lives

00:36:42--> 00:36:48

will depend on what we do with regard to the rules of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

The so called great secret,

00:36:52--> 00:37:01

and it's an open secret, it's a secret that is shouted out from the rooftops, by the envy of Ali Ali Salaam amiah of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:37:02--> 00:37:13

And that secret is what the secret is that there is no secret. The secret is that all goodness lies in obedience of Allah.

00:37:16--> 00:37:22

All goodness lies in the obedience of Allah. And all

00:37:24--> 00:37:30

problems lie in the disobedience of Allah, the One who obeys Allah subhanaw taala

00:37:31--> 00:37:44

this person is successful, and will always be successful. The one who disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala will always be unsuccessful. And it doesn't matter what it looks like in this life.

00:37:45--> 00:37:58

Because this life is going to end this life is going to end and it is going to end very soon. For everybody, all of us will die We were created with that

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

quality that we will die.

00:38:04--> 00:38:13

The day we were born, the day we came out of our mother's wombs was the day on which we had the longest lifespan

00:38:14--> 00:38:23

and lifespan we counted the other way around. We say well, I have lived for 65 years no 65 years of your life has been is gone.

00:38:25--> 00:38:30

You didn't live for me you live for five years. But that doesn't mean that's not that's not such a strong achievement.

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

65 years is the figure which is a loss.

00:38:37--> 00:38:44

I was 65 on the 20th of October this year. So did I gain 65? Or do I lose 65?

00:38:47--> 00:38:49

I lost 65 I don't know how to how much

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

I do not want how much.

00:38:54--> 00:39:31

So when we are in this kind of a deal, where I am losing and I don't know how much I have left? What must I do? I must make sure that okay, I don't care how much I've lost 65 I don't know how much more I have maybe I maybe I have only one more year left, maybe less than this and that may be more but I cannot afford to lose whatever I have left. So whatever I live however I lived if that was good Alhamdulillah we ask Allah to protect that if it wasn't good. We ask Allah to forgive that. But going forward, I want to make sure that I will deliberately never do something to displease Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:39:32--> 00:39:43

And that is my advice to you. My advice Jews deliberately do not do anything to displease Allah. Ensure that you follow every rule in the book, ensure that you follow whatever

00:39:45--> 00:39:52

that is. What is halaal do only that. What is haram leave it stay far away from that don't go near that.

00:39:53--> 00:39:55

Don't go near the boundary of the king.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

What is in between the doubtful things, leave them

00:40:01--> 00:40:12

Anything you are doubtful about Don't eat it. Anything any source of income you're doubtful about, don't indulge in it. Any kalama any talk anything that you are doubtful about, don't speak it.

00:40:14--> 00:40:52

Because until you do it, there is no sin on you. So make sure that you don't do it. Make sure that you do only that which Allah has permitted, and make sure that you leave everything which Allah is not permitted. We ask Allah subhanaw taala della della Lu, to be pleased with us, to save us from all doubtful matters to take. We ask Allah to protect our Eman to keep us in a state of obedience to Him and to take us in a state of obedience to Him and to redirect us in a state where we will be counted among the obedient masala lalana will carry Hualalai he was named after me, but hamdulillah horrible alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
