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

alameen wa salatu wa salam O Allah

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

Muhammad Rasul Allah

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

mavado.

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

meridian sisters,

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

we are looking at the topic of leaving Islam

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

as distinct from

00:00:28--> 00:00:39

studying Islam, or speaking about Islam or reading about Islam, you're talking about leaving Islam, which is the actual practice of Islam in our life.

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

The reason we need to focus on that the reason we need to talk about that is because Islam is the name of a practice. Islam is not

00:00:50--> 00:01:05

a theory or a theology by itself. Islam is the name of a practice, like any practice, Islam benefits those who practice it. And it does not benefit those who do not practice it, no matter how much Islam they may know.

00:01:06--> 00:01:18

So knowing about Islam is a different matter. But if we want Islam to benefit us, we have to actually live Islam, you have to practice Islam. And that's the reason why we are looking at this.

00:01:20--> 00:01:37

The delille for this is from the era of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where the single point of success of rasulillah salam, and the Sahaba was this, that they actually lived the message of Islam.

00:01:39--> 00:01:48

Now, in that context, I want to speak to you and mentioned to the Hadees of Salaam which is in Sahih, Muslim,

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

William and delanco,

00:01:53--> 00:02:48

the great confidant of Rasulullah sallam, he said, I heard rasulillah he's saying, temptations will be presented to men's hearts, as a read math is woven, stick by stick. And any heart which is impregnated by them, will have a black mark put into it. But any heart which rejects them will have a white mark put into it. The result is that there will become two types of hearts, one white like a white store, which will not be harmed by any turmoil or temptation, so long as the heavens and the earth endured, and the other black and dust colored, like a vessel which is upset, not recognizing what is good, or rejecting what is abominable, but being impregnated with passion.

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

Now if you look at his holiness,

00:02:51--> 00:02:59

and before that, if we if I ask any of you and this is a question which I asked people in

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

there various aspects of my

00:03:04--> 00:03:20

professional consulting practice. As a leadership development consultant, I asked this question to people individually. And I also asked this question to organizations, to the promoter groups to the top management's of organizations and so on.

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

The question as there is

00:03:23--> 00:03:46

to do what we call a SWOT analysis, which is a strength, weakness, opportunities, threats. This is a different thing from this presentation from this class today. We'll talk about that later. But it's called a SWOT analysis, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats. And in this SWOT analysis, when I asked them to do it, and then after that, we sit and analyze it and see, you see what

00:03:47--> 00:03:53

I have yet to find a person or an organization.

00:03:55--> 00:03:59

Putting obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala as a strength

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

and sinning or disobedience of Allah Subhana Allah as a weakness.

00:04:07--> 00:04:38

Now this is a mark of our very materialistic way of life. Like today, we, we seem to see everything including our strengths and weaknesses in material. So what is your What are your strengths, you will list for me your bank, balance your properties on so forth, maybe your education, maybe you work for a good organization. Maybe you are somebody in society, you got some political authority, political power, administrative authority, and so on. But will you list

00:04:40--> 00:04:51

and I'm not saying you must list this to tell anybody else I'm saying for yourself. This is not for the sake of showing the word for yourself. Will you list the fact that I am a Muslim? This is my strength.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

You may say if you Even if you say if I asked you to Okay, so you're saying that how do you know tell me explain to me what being a Muslim

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

Why is it a strength?

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

For most of us, we don't know. You might might give this as an answer.

00:05:07--> 00:05:26

But if I tell you to show me if I tell you that, you know, if you say I have a bank balance of a million dollars and if I asked you tell me why is it a strength user? That's a foolish question. You should know why it's a strength What's so difficult to understand that if I've got a million dollars if I got a billion dollars, that this is a strength Why Why are you even asking this question?

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

But if you say that I'm a Muslim, this is my strength.

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

I obey Allah This is my strength. I prayed that dude, this is my strength.

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

What is the answer?

00:05:44--> 00:05:48

If I ask you why? Please explain to me why is that a strength?

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

Yes.

00:06:01--> 00:06:28

Okay, so sisters saying that, I believe it's a strength for me because it helps me to endure the difficulties that I faced in life, because I know this is the cover of Allah, Tara and Allah loves me, Allah will take care of me. So, if he has given me the difficulty, he will also give me the strength to bear it, he will on the east come to the difficulties with this Islam is a strength for him. Right. There is a famous story in my country, India.

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

About the Emperor Jada

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

is the guy who built the dogma.

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

The story is that Sharjah

00:06:38--> 00:06:48

he was a he was an emperor, he was you know, we shot to the money and so on. So, he wanted to wear silk and gold.

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

Right. So, he,

00:06:55--> 00:07:02

but being a Muslim, he knew that wearing silk can go for men is not permissible. So he wanted some relief.

00:07:04--> 00:07:08

So obviously, you know, like all kings, we had the compliant

00:07:10--> 00:07:26

you have like you have Sharia compliant things you are compliant, Alex. So he had the you know, Emperor compliant whatever. So they don't even see the thing is that this prohibition of wearing gold and silk, this is for ordinary people.

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

This does not apply to you because you are the king giavanna

00:07:33--> 00:07:35

You are the refuge of the world.

00:07:36--> 00:07:53

This is a prime mission for ordinary people so that don't show off. isn't for you, who will you show off? You are the greatest there is no one for you to show off. So, this provision does not apply to you. This is the fatwa he is compliant Allah gave to him.

00:07:54--> 00:08:01

But you know, unless I put some hair in the heart. So Jada knew that this photo is coming because I am king.

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

So he there was one alum in those days

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

who live outside Delhi, who never came to meet the king.

00:08:15--> 00:08:20

And he was the star of the younger son of Java

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

was

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

so he was

00:08:27--> 00:08:27

stuck.

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

So Java has said to his son, he said this and he said, Go and ask

00:08:35--> 00:08:41

and tell him to give me a fatwa. To say that it is permissible for me to wear silk and good

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

aren't they knew that this is not going to happen?

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

But anyway, since his father told him his father was the viewer to the study told him this

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

boy

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

your father didn't bother to Fiamma

00:08:58--> 00:09:01

do this don't do all this games no play games.

00:09:03--> 00:09:07

So our exam Kevin is that with Valerie said biostar says your

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

shadow got very very upset. I'm talking about the issue of why is Islam a strength

00:09:18--> 00:09:21

Chaka very upset and he ordered his

00:09:22--> 00:09:25

army commander to send soldiers and he said bring that money.

00:09:28--> 00:09:39

So our exam before the soldiers could get their arms around one or two hours he got up there and he said to us that please hide

00:09:42--> 00:09:47

away somewhere because my father has ordered for you to be arrested and brought to the court.

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

So it was dad he stood up

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

and he said Where is my masala bring my masala

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

masala is the bread my tray

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

Remember Salah already said Why? He said because your father he's proud of his money and he's proud of his power. He said I am proud of my Allah

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

let me see who can do what bring my masala

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

he said tomorrow for dollar bill what Ben has a

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

mutual love and

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

well America Don't

00:10:32--> 00:10:33

you have them.

00:10:37--> 00:10:43

He said Your father is proud of his money and his power and his army. He said I am proud of my alma.

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

Let's see.

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

Let us see who can do what to

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

camera

00:10:54--> 00:11:00

ran back to the court. And he said to his father is asking for the muzzle herbicide. What do you want to do?

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

That I was a man with good sense he canceled his order. It was the people who leave alone. Don't go Don't bring

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

my brother sisters, the thing I remind myself in you

00:11:20--> 00:11:21

is

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

we need to get this thing into our heads very clear.

00:11:27--> 00:11:30

That obeying Allah subhana wa Taala

00:11:31--> 00:11:36

is the root of our strength. It is the root of our power.

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

This is who we are.

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

Why are you Muslim? What is the Muslim?

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

The one who obeys Allah?

00:11:47--> 00:11:53

No, I mean submission right? A Muslim is the one who submitted to submit What is the meaning of submitted to Allah?

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

Means you always Allah.

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

What is a Muslim who does not do well? Is there such a thing

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

with God Allah hora boo us live

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

Kala Aslam to Allah.

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

Allah said about

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

his route he is robbed said to him Submit.

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

Islam he brahmanism did not say I will submit. He said as I have submitted

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

we've got a SIM card

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

I have submitted.

00:12:38--> 00:12:50

Now in this hand is also a very important thing. He's saying that every action that we do has an effect on our heart. Now why is the heart important?

00:12:51--> 00:13:01

Because Allah subhanaw taala said on the Day of Judgment, your money your children, your power, your authority. None of this will help you

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

Illa man upper lobby Calvin Sally

00:13:07--> 00:13:11

and less than except the one who comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala with Calhoun city.

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

What is government?

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

There is a series of lectures of mine on that answer to that.

00:13:19--> 00:13:25

But hairpins Aleem is not a heart which is unaffected by anything. No.

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

Alvin Saleem is a heart which

00:13:31--> 00:13:44

has seen difficulty which has seen hardship, which has seen temptation which has seen termite which has seen pain which has seen suffering, but keeps on coming back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:13:47--> 00:13:52

It's like a compass, which is working properly, it always points to the

00:13:53--> 00:14:01

magnetic north. No matter what you do with that you can turn it around is that if you know do a figure of eight with it, it'll go this way that when it comes back to the

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

ones not

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

always punch not.

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

Now thermocellum is this.

00:14:10--> 00:14:14

Now the child said to Bashar Bashar can Iraqis say that I

00:14:16--> 00:14:20

do see Gustavo Aziz. A guy in

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

the word said don't protect the heart.

00:14:27--> 00:14:30

To baba baba can Allah say don't keep on protecting the heart

00:14:31--> 00:14:37

that I have in other heart is compared to the mirror.

00:14:38--> 00:14:44

When you look in the mirror, you see your face. The mirror reflects the new of Allah.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

A common salema clear heart a clean heart reflects the nature of Allah subhanho wa it it is it shows the awareness of Allah. It is a huge source of strength. There are I inaho ins

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

Your Your heart is your mirror is that mirror, the Sheikah starhawk as he is today, where it is broken,

00:15:09--> 00:15:15

it is beloved nega eye in US asthma in the sight of the one who created it

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

not an untouched mirror, a broken mirror, which has been put back

00:15:24--> 00:15:29

which is a good compass, one which is pointing not and will never touch it

00:15:30--> 00:15:35

or one, no matter what you did with it, it always points not.

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

You understand if you never touch it or you're not sure

00:15:40--> 00:15:44

it's pointing Not now, but what is this thing going to do?

00:15:45--> 00:15:49

If I move it will it still point not will it do something else.

00:15:52--> 00:15:57

But if I have moved it around and up and down everything else that it still points out that this is good,

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

this one I can follow because it will not take me wrong.

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

And these are these officers will say that

00:16:07--> 00:16:17

when a person commits a sin, what is the person actually doing when you are consciously committing a sin knowingly, again, please understand what we do unknowingly.

00:16:19--> 00:16:31

We ask Allah to forgive and inshallah Allah will forgive there is no sin on someone who did something out of forgetfulness, or out of lack of knowledge, among Gimpo or whatever.

00:16:33--> 00:16:39

And he said to him, I have done something wrong, I want you to tell me,

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

you know, what should I do?

00:16:42--> 00:16:54

I said, What do you do? The man said, I was fasting, nothing fast. And I went to the friend's house, and he offered me something to eat. And I forgot that I was fasting twice.

00:16:56--> 00:17:04

So what must I say? Nothing. Because you had forgotten and you ate? And afterwards?

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

He said, No, no, no, it's not doesn't finish with that.

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

He said, whatever. He said, you know, after that, after a couple of hours, I went to another friend's place. And he also offered me food, and I forgot I was fasting. So I had that option.

00:17:23--> 00:17:26

So rather than show you forgot his

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

last show,

00:17:29--> 00:17:36

but I had the second time. So our alarm set. Okay, inshallah that's also Keizer. Oh, it didn't finish with that. So then what?

00:17:38--> 00:17:43

He said, No, I went to a dark place. And they're also they gave me food. I forgot I was fasting. So I had

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

a laugh, and he said, You are not used to fasting.

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

Three times.

00:17:56--> 00:17:59

So I'm not talking about doing something unknowingly.

00:18:01--> 00:18:21

unknowingly thing level, and talking about deliberate. How many of us do not know that telling a lie is a sin. This is somebody who does not know I am lying through my teeth. And somebody says, Why are you telling me lies? No, I didn't know Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know that lying is a sin. Is there somebody like this in the world?

00:18:23--> 00:18:29

How many of us do not know that he was backbiting somebody? Is anybody who does not know that anybody does it?

00:18:30--> 00:18:33

Is there somebody who does not know that cheating is a sin?

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

Is there somebody who does not know that cursing using bad language?

00:18:40--> 00:18:47

I'm not going into murder and Xena and so on, I know you will not do all that. Or bringing alcohol? No. But I am saying things which

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

are within quotes. We think it is one.

00:18:51--> 00:18:51

Right?

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

Who does not know that these are sins, but we still do them?

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

Because we don't feel the effect of that.

00:19:02--> 00:19:29

We don't feel this has been saying that there is an actual effect of this on your heart. Your heart is getting covered. It is getting covered. The heartbeat must reflect the glory and majesty of Allah. And when the heart reflects the glory and majesty of Allah. What does it do? It gives you strength, it gives you power, it gives you authority gives you contentment as a sister that helps you to face the difficulties of life.

00:19:30--> 00:19:34

But when that hard is getting covered, and governor, Governor, governor, Governor there, it's just a

00:19:36--> 00:19:37

it was a piece of wood

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

as are we given him?

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

And he said yeah,

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

I'm sorry, I do many batteries.

00:19:50--> 00:19:56

Right. And the narrator said he used to do practically everything, whatever you can think of the minute

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

so he said to

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

you

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

As I do many wrong things, many hard things, I really want to give up, but I can't give up everything, I am a weak man. And there's too much of temptation. So I can't give up. But for you, I will give up one thing. So please tell me which one I should do, though, you know, alcohol and Xena and this and this and this and this and this Which one should I

00:20:24--> 00:20:29

refer to him Don't tell lies give up telling lies.

00:20:32--> 00:20:45

So, here is here is a man who is also he's drinking alcohol is committing Zina is finally getting his data and tell them which one is the only one only one I will

00:20:47--> 00:21:03

I can give up you tell me which one I will give I will give up I will give up that one not anything else. So, see first of all, how the province of Assam addresses this he does not say What kind of a man you are you are doing so many so much ah and this will happen that will happen. You will burn Delphi No.

00:21:04--> 00:21:08

He listens to him. He does not criticize anything which you say.

00:21:09--> 00:21:26

The man is asking him I want to give a one sin which one can I give up there does not tell you what kind of a ridiculous thing you come to the Navy. And you make you make all these all these, you know, conditions that you can't do this. You can't do that you give up one seat. Don't you have any faith in Allah, he didn't ask any of this.

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

He listened to him he accepted whatever he said.

00:21:31--> 00:21:37

He said one sin I can give up Never give up telling lies once. So now

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

this method is easy.

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

Only telling lies.

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

Not difficult.

00:21:46--> 00:21:51

So he's very happy. Angela. mean I can do everything else. Just I should not tell lies.

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

Now question is

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

that evening. Normally, it's time to go hang out with his pals in the pub or whatever it is, I will have a nice drink at the end. So on

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

Sunday thought comes to him tomorrow if I meet

00:22:07--> 00:22:16

anybody, he asked me Where were you last evening? What waited? Because I said I can't tell lies. Now I can't actually go and tell the province that I was committing zerah

00:22:17--> 00:22:20

I was drinking alcohol I was gambling I was doing.

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

I mean that is shameful. How can I say that?

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

by candlelight? Because I promised you I will not.

00:22:30--> 00:22:39

So every time he came to us in the start came to him if the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam asked me, What will I say? I can tell a lie.

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

And the man gave up everything.

00:22:45--> 00:22:57

So how just wondering, just because of the reason I'm saying is, this looks like a simple thing. But it's not simple. That is the root cause is the mother of all evil is telling lies.

00:23:01--> 00:23:16

So here in this hand is saying that if a person commits a sin, there is an actual effect on his heart, and the art becomes opaque. The art becomes incapable of connecting with Allah Subhana Allah,

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

you still have a phone, but your battery is gone. battery's dead.

00:23:25--> 00:23:28

So when you need a law, you want to make a call, it doesn't work because the batteries

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

on the other hand, the one who does not do that,

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

the one who

00:23:37--> 00:23:38

does not commit us.

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

That heart gets cleaned.

00:23:45--> 00:23:51

So when we say do not commit meaning that when there is an opportunity to commit a sin, you stop,

00:23:52--> 00:24:01

see the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. In other words, if there is a lesson I'm said, when a person makes the intention of doing something good.

00:24:02--> 00:24:10

Think about it, he has not yet done it. For example, if you make this attention, after this does when we go out, I'm going to give $1 charge.

00:24:12--> 00:24:25

You have not given the dollar, you just made the intention. Allah subhanaw taala causes one good deed to be written into your account one has to be written out just because you made it.

00:24:27--> 00:24:33

Then when you actually do the deed, so as you are going out maybe the donation box you drop it or you give it to somebody outside

00:24:35--> 00:24:48

then Allah Allah causes from 10 to 700 to whatever he wishes has to be written in your account on the basis of that one would be

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

conversely,

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

if you make the intention of doing something wrong, first of all, making the intention of doing something wrong itself is

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

You know, sounds crazy, but

00:25:02--> 00:25:14

maybe you are you just heard this very juicy piece of gossip which you want to go and as soon as I go to the demo to pick up my phone, call my friend and tell him this really, really juicy piece of gossip about somebody deliver

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

without you see this.

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

So the point is you made this intention.

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

The Malacca Xia bellami. He made his intention, he did not do it. Right.

00:25:30--> 00:25:41

Then you had the intention, but now he was adding others you understood that this is how I should not do it. So you cancel the intention? No, I'm not gonna do that, unless you write a good deed.

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

See how much

00:25:51--> 00:25:51

right

00:25:53--> 00:25:59

now, you made the intention, nothing was written you actually go and do the thing.

00:26:00--> 00:26:02

So now you have gone and done the labor you actually committed.

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

The man I

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

mean, he committed it unless you

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

don't write it.

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

But he did know it.

00:26:14--> 00:26:21

Maybe he will make us differ with Allah is not maybe Allah knows. But this is what Allah says to me.

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

The whole day pass.

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

How much time is given for day,

00:26:29--> 00:26:34

four day passes, nothing is written. Maybe we'll make a step or maybe make Toba.

00:26:35--> 00:26:38

Now, if he makes is the one you make, after doing that,

00:26:40--> 00:26:54

this is something bad, I really should not have done that. Maybe two hours later 10 hours later, whatever you see as the polarity Viola I am very sorry, I should not have done this thing I did wrong. You may discover Allah subhanho wa Taala tells them right a good deed.

00:26:57--> 00:26:57

Because the way it is

00:27:03--> 00:27:09

and that one which is written is how much 10 to 700 tomorrow, not one.

00:27:11--> 00:27:17

Now you did not make it step one. At the end of the day, how much is it? one

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

and that one also will be there until tomorrow is gone.

00:27:26--> 00:27:28

America has often forgotten the is clear.

00:27:30--> 00:27:33

You want the Lula who say he at the him has an act.

00:27:35--> 00:27:39

Allah said Allah will convert their evil deeds into good deeds.

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

Allah will forgive

00:27:43--> 00:27:48

and not just forgive, supposing I did something wrong. Forgive that hamdulillah I'm happy,

00:27:49--> 00:28:05

I am home and dry. No, Allah Subhana Allah will not only forgive Allah, Allah will convert these sins into good deeds. Now, this is not a you know, promotion for sin, saying that covered a lot of sins. So that it will get covered good, you know.

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

At the same time just to remember this, that this is the

00:28:15--> 00:28:22

saying that is telling us to be conscious of our hearts and conscious of our actions.

00:28:23--> 00:28:25

And not just blindly do things.

00:28:26--> 00:28:32

The position of the slave is between binal Houthi wautoma

00:28:33--> 00:28:40

between fear of Allah subhanaw taala as punishment and Dharma which is hope for his forgiveness.

00:28:43--> 00:29:10

So both are true. One is to fear Allah subhana wa danas punishment. What if Allah does not forgive me? Allah said he will forgive but in some cases, you have to seek forgiveness Allah will not stop minuses Allah will forgive anyway, major since this is the so we are less free to forgive even the major sins without asking that I am not putting a condition for Allah. But I'm saying what we understand is that major sins you need to seek forgiveness.

00:29:13--> 00:29:33

And major system is what delivers images, backbiting images, staring lasers, images, they're not small things, dealing in interest, whatever you are actually buying enmity of Allah subhanaw taala. What is more major than that? gambling is images, whether it's cars or horses or dogs or cats or water or whatever.

00:29:35--> 00:29:36

Gambling is emergency.

00:29:39--> 00:29:53

So they need to forget it's a morning for example, may Allah May Allah protect us from this the ayat of Surah maclear Allah. Allah said when they transgress and they exceed all the boundaries of transgression

00:29:54--> 00:29:58

and when they refuse to listen to warnings,

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

What does Allah do? Allah said Fatah Hana Allah him up guava Polish a

00:30:08--> 00:30:11

Allah said we open on them the doors of everything

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

that's it look at look at this.

00:30:16--> 00:30:26

And I'm not saying that when they increase transgression when they become more and more disobedient, then we will punish them No, unless we actually give them more.

00:30:28--> 00:30:38

So if they were transgressing because of wealth, Allah will give more money. If they were transgressing because of power and authority and they were oppressing people Allah will give them more power.

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

And then what

00:30:47--> 00:30:55

and then Allah said and when they are completely and totally embroiled and gross with that disobedience because now I've got even more

00:30:58--> 00:31:06

I know gambling is haram, but I will not give it up. So what happened now, I am elected the president of the gambling club.

00:31:08--> 00:31:10

I am elected the president of the club.

00:31:15--> 00:31:20

I know interest based banking is haram, but I will not give it up. So what happens now?

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

I become the head of the Federal Reserve.

00:31:25--> 00:31:25

I become

00:31:26--> 00:31:34

this is the lobby. I become I become the president of of, you know, whatever HSBC or Citibank or something.

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

So this is what funnel of Allah or what

00:31:40--> 00:31:44

somebody asked him I wish after a delay this question, let me complete it. So

00:31:45--> 00:31:53

unless it fatahna la him Ababa, Felicia, Allah said we give them everything. And then when they are in the middle of that

00:31:54--> 00:32:06

middle of the sin which they are committing, we are sitting in the guard room doing the deal, you know, blackjack, or is in Las Vegas on the roulette table, and he's putting his coins there

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

are many chairing this board meeting of this of this great global bank.

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala said we can

00:32:21--> 00:32:27

borrow data for home Mobley soon and they are broken in spirit.

00:32:29--> 00:32:32

No time to make over no time to register for

00:32:35--> 00:32:40

a half an hour home. But guess them suddenly

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

somebody asked

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

this question.

00:32:46--> 00:32:56

The man asked him he said you know in our you say that if you do good, good will happen if you do sin, and Allah will punish you, but we see in our life this is not so

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

we see people who are evil people who are committing all kinds of sins, but nothing I was.

00:33:03--> 00:33:35

On the other hand, they are getting more and more money and more and more power. So how do you say this is true? Now, whichever and the law says that if a person is deliberately committing sin, again and again and again knowing and then you find that he has more money and more wealth and more power and more popularity, he said this is a sign that the Azov of Allah subhanho wa Taala has already begun for that man The doors are Hidayat have been closed and been checked. May Allah protect us from this

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

sometimes we get upset when some loss happens

00:33:45--> 00:33:53

what what is it? What are the home minella will do not as I will act very lol the home yard you

00:33:54--> 00:34:00

Alessandra give them the small punishment before the big punishment so that they will return to us.

00:34:01--> 00:34:06

So the sign that Allah subhanaw taala is still pleased with you.

00:34:09--> 00:34:16

And that Allah wishes something good for you. The sign is that if you and I are doing something wrong

00:34:18--> 00:34:20

then there is some warning.

00:34:23--> 00:34:30

That's when you get a few What is it? Is it the hora This is something which will take away your sense.

00:34:31--> 00:34:52

Allah does not need to give you a fever to forgive you. I like it for you anyway. All the things I say Allah please, please forgive, don't give me difficulty to forgive. But at the same time, now is a lesson and said for the moment. Even if a thorn breaks his foot. This is kind of boring because Allah will will forgive you something of it because of that little bit of it.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

So it's like for example, if it's a little child and he wants to in the kitchen and he's putting his hand out for

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

You know, towards the stove,

00:35:02--> 00:35:09

than the mother tells him once or twice or thrice, then she slaps you on the on the wrist right? Just like this.

00:35:10--> 00:35:13

I mean, she's not wagging him and bouncing him off the wall on something no GS

00:35:15--> 00:35:19

nine, he feels some pain he will cry. But why did you do that?

00:35:21--> 00:35:28

To save him because if he puts you down to the wire, then that kid is in big trouble, he is going to have pain for a long time after that.

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

So to save him from the big pain

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

gives him a small

00:35:37--> 00:35:43

handle dolla dolla Hamza, Allah subhanaw taala also does this Allah Subhana Allah gives us such wonderful.

00:35:45--> 00:35:56

So, when we have this more difficult anything, whatever and sometimes it may be seen as a private maybe some accident of time you lose some money or whatever it is, right? You lose a job, what must we do? Immediately?

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

Immediately Magnus devoir

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

make a lot of his departure.

00:36:04--> 00:36:08

The purpose of this holidays also is to talk about the importance of

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

this beautiful story.

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

In his

00:36:16--> 00:36:25

he narrated a Hadith, in the in his Muslim, where as soon as the Muslims there the person who makes a lot of history for

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala answers is

00:36:29--> 00:36:30

Allah accepted.

00:36:31--> 00:36:41

And he says Allah subhanho wa Taala protects him from all kinds of evil. So a lot of lot of benefit in making a lot of exceptions.

00:36:43--> 00:36:47

Now in the Buddhist story, my man was traveling, he was going away.

00:36:49--> 00:36:53

Now these are the, you know, the great scholars, the true scholars.

00:36:54--> 00:37:05

So a lot of a lot of humbleness and humility. So he didn't travel with a big entourage of people. Now who is your mama mama was at that time was

00:37:06--> 00:37:18

he one of the greatest scholars of the time. Very famous and well known, he would have gotten you know, with a whole entourage of people traveling alone he was traveling a lot with his little bit of buried with him.

00:37:19--> 00:37:26

He reached a place a small town and by the time he reached that place, it was late in the night.

00:37:28--> 00:37:41

So in those days, there's no hotel to check in or something so he's looking for someplace to stay. And he found a monkey. So he went to the masjid he put his things in one place. And

00:37:43--> 00:37:44

he bred

00:37:46--> 00:37:50

and after he prayed the Imam or the caretaker was there.

00:37:51--> 00:38:00

So he said to the caretaker, he said no, I am a stranger in this place. I have no friends. I have no relatives, nobody. I need to stay for the night Can I sleep here

00:38:02--> 00:38:03

Magento you can

00:38:05--> 00:38:05

go

00:38:08--> 00:38:15

which was a really good kind of thing to do. imama at that time was also you know elderly, national you can tell you go

00:38:18--> 00:38:21

around I tried to persuade the mind you leave go.

00:38:23--> 00:38:33

So in my mind, I said to the girl, okay, I will not stay in the masjid. But you know, the massages they used to have a little courtyard outside. Right. And then there will be a little wall and then the street.

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

He said to send them.

00:38:38--> 00:38:42

He said can I sleep in the courtyard outside the building of the mosquito? No, no.

00:38:44--> 00:38:54

You cannot sleep here. Yes, I'm going to sleep in the courtyard of the budget. How can I sleep on the street? I mean, what street is so in the courtyard next door, you can

00:38:55--> 00:39:06

do that extent the man got angry. He picked up a mama's luggage. He got him a mama by his collar and he physically threw him out.

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

Now and he threw the luggage up.

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

So the luggage fell on the street in my mom and I almost fell out of the street.

00:39:16--> 00:39:33

Now while all this is happening, opposite the masjid is a baker's shop. His man is baking bread. This man sees all this happening. He comes out from there he picks up our luggage he apologizes to him he said you please come here. Stay in my shop.

00:39:34--> 00:39:56

I work all night I am baking bread. So you please come and you stay in my shop. This is very, very sad. This man is doing this to you. Please come. So when I went into a shop, he put my luggage there I spread my bed. I was sitting on the bed. He said I noticed that this man while he is baking bread. He is continuously making it Stefan

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

continues to make miserable

00:40:01--> 00:40:07

So my mama said I watched him for some time then I asked him he said I told him that

00:40:08--> 00:40:19

is this your routine? You are continuously making stuff are you seeking Allah forgiveness? Is this something you do all the time? Or is it some special thing we're doing today's No, this is my No.

00:40:21--> 00:40:28

I don't talk to anybody unnecessarily and so on. If I need to speak I speak otherwise I continuously make is the fry language.

00:40:29--> 00:40:33

In my mama's room, then tell me Allah has shown you something.

00:40:35--> 00:40:37

Allah subhanaw taala would have shown you his sight.

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

What is it that

00:40:43--> 00:40:48

the man said, You know, I know how that rendezvous is a very

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

mindset room.

00:40:51--> 00:40:56

That Alhamdulillah one thing I can say Allah subhanaw taala accepts My God.

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

Allah has accepted every dua that I ever made except one.

00:41:03--> 00:41:17

So this is getting no stranger and stranger. So the Lancer alac certified where they go do of mind that Allah rejects if I ask something I like gives. I've seen this in my life many times. Except one one. There's only one do I wish I have asked Allah Marita Allah

00:41:20--> 00:41:30

Allah accept all your one do I wish to what is that? He said you know I asked Allah. Allah I want to meet Amma dim the Amba.

00:41:33--> 00:41:36

He said I want to meet Mr. Mohammed bin Salman.

00:41:37--> 00:41:38

But Allah has not given that

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

have not been able to be.

00:41:43--> 00:41:55

Well, when I started the match and he said you are the cause. He said a lab flew me out of his house, so that you can meet me. He said, I am apabila

00:41:56--> 00:42:02

I wanted to sleep in Alan's house. Allah had me thrown out of his house, so that I could meet

00:42:04--> 00:42:06

you at your door. I am the man

00:42:08--> 00:42:08

and my

00:42:15--> 00:42:17

sisters we worship but real God,

00:42:18--> 00:42:21

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

What are you under the law is

00:42:25--> 00:42:29

the one who is alive and who is established and the one who does not die.

00:42:31--> 00:42:35

We don't worship a concept we don't worship a theory. We don't worship a creature.

00:42:38--> 00:42:42

When we speak, Allah hears, talk to Alaska.

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

Not here.

00:42:45--> 00:42:53

And I seen you, Allah knows you. Allah knows you better than you know yourself. Allah knows you better than your parents show you because Allah created you.

00:42:56--> 00:42:57

Ask Allah

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

00:43:02--> 00:43:03

Stay far

00:43:19--> 00:43:23

no knowing that flowing blood is going to kill you. Why would Why would anyone do that?

00:43:25--> 00:43:35

Don't do that. Stay away from no small sin no big sin no big decently and make this absolute you have been for I will not disobey Allah.

You help us because you know us. You know we are we, we awaken this area. But whether we can keep this we can't give this we don't know we will try.

00:44:26--> 00:44:30

But to make it easy for us this volume. So Allah please make this easy for us.

00:44:32--> 00:44:50

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to obey Him, always every minute of our lives. Until the day we meet, we ask Allah to to give us a life which is lived in obedience and a death which is in obedience of him. And that when we are resurrected it is in a state of Georgia before
