alameen wa salatu salam ala mousseline, Mohammed

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


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

just as we are in our class on leaving Islam.

00:00:19 --> 00:00:54

And since there are some Mashallah not some but a number of new faces, let me quickly do a brief thumbnail recap about what we have been doing. Or if you're more comfortable the church, no problem. Thank you, anybody more comfortable the gRPC to the chair, we want you to be comfortable because if you are in pain, you can't you know, yeah, I mean, I get no pleasure from it, and you will get no benefit from it. So please don't be in pain, sit down, lie down whatever you like, as long as you come to

00:00:55 --> 00:00:56

adhere to

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

what we said was that and these two classes the man bar on Monday is on Sierra, it's on the biography of Salah, and today's is on living Islam. And if you look at it, conceptually, these two are linked.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:30

There is a connection between the two classes. So these are not two distinct individual classes without a connection. Both of these are linked. And and the both of them start from the basic presumption or my contention, that

00:01:32 --> 00:01:52

the historical fact that Rasul Allah is Allah and his companions started off. From the time when he started preaching Islam, they started off by being the least influential, most hated, most detested, most looked down upon,

00:01:53 --> 00:01:58

poorest weakest, you name all the negative stuff, that's where they started.

00:01:59 --> 00:02:01

But in one single generation,

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

they went to the other talk to the other end, which is that they became the role models for their work.

00:02:13 --> 00:02:29

They became the rulers, they became the people who set this to set standards. People looked up to them. People came into Islam, not because of force, but because they just love seeing people like this.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:36

So what was that? What did they do? And what was the so called secret of this?

00:02:37 --> 00:03:22

And my submission is that it is no secret. It's absolute public information, which is that they live Islam. They didn't just talk about Islam. They didn't stand and make big speeches about this. Islam means this, this, this, this, this, Islam means that we never say a bad word to somebody. And then the minute you go out of the budget, somebody parked his car badly, and you start cursing them and you start swearing. Just now you stood here and you said, a Muslim does not use foul language. Because this tongue is used for the praise of Allah subhanho wa Taala this tongue is used for the love of the Quran for the for Is it a recitation of the Quran. So this term must not then engage in

00:03:22 --> 00:03:36

foul stuff. Right? So we say this is this is what Islam means. You go out there and you start that you stand here and say Islam means peace. Islam means harmony. You go outside some obligation with somebody and you go bam, bam, bam, bam, da, da da, what happens

00:03:39 --> 00:04:30

to where is this piece that you talked about? Right? So this is not what they did. They the Sahaba Rasulullah sallallahu himself, of course, and his companions and the Sahaba. They lived Islam, they didn't talk about Islam, they didn't preach Islam they lived, they lived Islam. To the extent sometimes I remember saying this in one lecture to a group of scholars. I said to them, that if Sahaba if the if the peak or top Sahaba of Rasulullah, Salah if they came to your dorm room, if they came to your mother aside, they came to your jamya and wanted to enroll as students your entrance exam, more than likely many of them would not have passed because many of the terminology of

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

which we have today they didn't have

00:04:35 --> 00:04:41

as far as they were concerned. If they say a lab does not like something, they just stopped doing it.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:51

They didn't get into is it Hara or is it macro? Is it macro tahari may or Tansy, he is a MOBA.

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

They said Allah does not like that is the end of the story. If Allah does not like I will not do it. Period finished

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

So now they come to the mothers and the Jamia and you are asking them some questions. Maybe some of those questions those of us would not have been able to answer.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:10


00:05:11 --> 00:05:13

They are the standard.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:23

They are the gold standard, and it's not my contention. It is not my claim. This is what Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in his color.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:25

Asahi horn Allah

00:05:26 --> 00:05:30

Maha de novo lansa when levena

00:05:33 --> 00:05:36

radi Allahu Allahu Allah one.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:51

Atlantic declared, Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Allah. There is no certification, no certificate, no medal, no award no reward which can be bigger than to say for Allah to say that I am pleased with that.

00:05:53 --> 00:06:03

We will come back to desire because in this eye, we also see the Rama of Rajendra gelato and I will tell you where that is, because Allah did not close the door with them and I left the door open.

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

So this was our

00:06:09 --> 00:06:12

many visual stories about the Sahaba and their approach to the

00:06:15 --> 00:06:44

Abdullah Omar vilanova, the son of Omar Abdullah satara delanco, one of the favorite students of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and the man about whom our mother I shall see these are the Allah Allah said that there is nobody among the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam who follows his Sunnah as closely as Abdullah. Allah. So this is what the Isaiah says.

00:06:46 --> 00:06:57

This person took 12 years to memorize Surah Surah Baqarah 12 years. Now you know and I know there are several of you have been to a mother is

00:06:59 --> 00:07:06

how many years does a normal student in a mother sir how many years in his mother sat down?

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

How many years does a student take to memorize the whole for how many years? Two years or two years? If he does not if he cannot do it in two years, then one more year they will still try with him after that they will say he can't he and his memories is weak. He can't do it. Anyway.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:31

These are no center with a normal standard is two years. Two years we can't do it.

00:07:33 --> 00:07:42

They give up they said three years maximum that's also because maybe you know you are a donor to the other side or something they know you keep him otherwise. But us.

00:07:43 --> 00:07:48

Abdullah, Ilan Omar, who is he? Who is his chef?

00:07:50 --> 00:07:51

Muhammad Mustafa sanaulla.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:57

Who is better who is a better teacher than Mombasa? Nobody.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:22

So he has the best teacher, that kalama Bala Allah subhanaw taala he is not reading some English translation or the translation he is reading it in Arabic, which is his language. And the understanding of the Sahaba of Arabic is the standard that to this day we take and we say that their understanding is the correct understanding.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:28

Right. So here it is man, who is

00:08:30 --> 00:08:39

an expert of the language. And he is taking 12 years to memorize sewer baccara one sewer alone.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:59

Who, which, in our time, hours to our students memorize the whole Quran in two years. So at the end of 12 years, he gave a big party, he wanted a whole bunch of friends. Two is our C slaughter a camel, and he cooked a big meal

00:09:01 --> 00:09:02

out of happiness for this.

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

So they asked him, they said How come you took 12 years to memorize the surah.

00:09:09 --> 00:09:24

And he explained the basic principle of leaving Islam which Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had said, he said the reason I took 12 years is because we now he's not talking about himself. This was the method of the Sabbath.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:32

He said we would go to a supervisor Salah we would take five miles from him or 10 miles from him.

00:09:33 --> 00:09:59

Then we would memorize those if then we would reflect on those if we would then implement those ideas in our lives. If there were any. If there were any orders or lots of arrows that are to be carried out. We carried out all that. If we had any questions we went to an official Salam Bhutto, I asked and we asked our questions. We got the Tafseer from the Ravi la Salam himself, when we were sat

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

FIDE with our understanding of these 10 ir then we would go to him for the next five or the next day.

00:10:08 --> 00:10:11

And that's why it took us so long. So what are we hearing?

00:10:14 --> 00:10:17

Are you hearing about memorizing? are we hearing about living,

00:10:19 --> 00:10:28

living, implementing? You know, it's a it's a, it's a tragic thing. In our times we have fractured knowledge.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:48

We have separated reading, from understanding from implementing implementing is almost there like, yes, it is there, but nobody does it like that. But we have even separated reading from understanding because we teach Quran nazara just reading.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:53

We don't understand what we are reading. We don't know Arabic, we don't learn Arabic.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:11

We just read character recognition. I mean, this happens all the time. We go to the arm, you're sitting in the arm, you're reading the Quran aloud. Some Arab guy will come and sit next to you and He will hear your recitation user Mashallah beautiful beautiful. You start speaking to in Arabic You don't understand what he's saying.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:17

So he says no, no, no, I don't know Arabic? is about you reading it. What do you mean don't worry.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:30

he can get his head around the fact that what we are doing here is just character recognition. We are we are interpreting some designs on a piece of paper. That's it.

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

That even that is the case how will it affect the heart tell me

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

how will it affect that?

00:11:41 --> 00:11:48

So do we even call it reading or we should call it reading if somebody is looking at designs on a page? Is it really

00:11:49 --> 00:11:54

you listen to a Gary will recite in Mashallah, Mashallah beautiful. What are you really appreciating?

00:11:55 --> 00:12:00

You appreciating music? No, you're appreciating the tune? You don't understand what he said.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:11

So, for all you know, you would have been saying saregamapa then he said that was what was your scales, that is what you are appreciating it sounds nice. True, fair enough. It sounds nice.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:17

This was not the state of the art with the Sahaba.

00:12:18 --> 00:12:26

With the Sahaba is one of a much mind they understood what they were hearing. So the minute they earned it, it went in here it went straight down into that

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

and it changed.

00:12:32 --> 00:12:43

So we fractured we have reading separate then we have a Tafseer class in which we are reading the meaning of what we read in English or Hulu or whichever language we have.

00:12:45 --> 00:12:55

And then as I drawn to the implementation of it, yes, we pay lip service to that. Yes, we must do that. But do we actually do it? Some do some don't most of all.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:02

That is the reason why there is no rule of the Koran in our lives.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:05

There is no power of the Quran in our lives.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:10

There is a story of what a savvy

00:13:11 --> 00:13:15

he came home and his wife says nothing else.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:19

nothing to eat in the house.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:22

So what does he do we go to the budget.

00:13:23 --> 00:13:24

He prays to Rocco Salah,

00:13:25 --> 00:13:26

then he moves

00:13:29 --> 00:13:30

and then he comes back home

00:13:32 --> 00:13:34

and he has no anything happened. He says nothing happened.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:37

So he goes back to the masjid.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

He plays another dourado Salah.

00:13:43 --> 00:13:47

I'm talking about leaving Islam. He brings another dragados Allah

00:13:48 --> 00:14:12

He makes some more dua when he comes back his wife says you know something strange is happening he says what she says this, you know they have this we call the mortar and pestle which is like like two stones and they they turn it raw in a chalky they turn it round around like this and they put barley or wheat or something in it and you get it grinds and you get flour right?

00:14:13 --> 00:14:15

So she says that thing is moving by itself

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

and flour is pouring out of it.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:40

Now she must have been a brave woman because if that thing is moving by itself she's run out of love but she didn't have he stayed there to know to see what's going on. And then she said well you know I have all the utensils in the house. I filled them up with the flour. So now there is no space and this thing is still turning and flour is still coming up.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:43

Now this is a hobby you know, man.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:51

You can't leave something alone you want you have to, you know fiddle with it. So he was you know, he was the opposite to see what happened. So it stops.

00:14:53 --> 00:14:54


00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

imagine if that happens to you or May Allah subhanaw taala give each one of you an experience like this minella here

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

Imagine if that happens. You know, obviously he loves the human he loves to run from the arrows with Allah. So he says, This is why I was I was hungry, we have no food, we are nothing in the house I go home my wife says there's no food I go and make dua. Now this whole thing is

00:15:19 --> 00:15:20

just trim.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:26

If you had not touched that thing is that that would have gone on grinding till the day

00:15:28 --> 00:15:30

and flower would have come.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:37

This also Allah Allah gives to who he wants, he wants

00:15:41 --> 00:15:42

leaving Islam

00:15:43 --> 00:16:00

the story I didn't just tell you the story of all the you know the Doom of it to say this is a this is a miracle. No, I am showing you how the Sahaba used Islam. Allah said yeah, you're Latina. hamano Stein. ob Sabri was Salah.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:08

Is Thai style ob Sabri wasa is Tiana. Well, in the cover.

00:16:09 --> 00:16:14

No, in this life, Allah saying oh you believe dig the help

00:16:15 --> 00:16:43

of Saba and Salah. What is our summer is patience. Summer is perseverance. Summer is making all the effort, mindshare, knowledge, effort, energy, everything. And then Stan in salons Allah, Allah, I did my best. I know this is not enough. You have to send the order Yala. Send the hokum Yala make it happen this. So Allah gave us a tool

00:16:45 --> 00:16:46

to use Well,

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

here is

00:16:49 --> 00:17:03

the question I asked you and I remind myself also, how many of us use Allah as a tool to make our life easier to solve our life's problems? How many of us do that?

00:17:05 --> 00:17:28

We break the law may Allah bless you all of you, Misha you praise Allah give you the reward for coming and praying in the masjid which is 27 times the reward of praying at home and Salah petition the masjid is equal to praying half of the night so I'm gonna you got this and if you pray Our father also in damages you get the reward for praying the entire night.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:31

But this is in terms of reward

00:17:32 --> 00:17:39

Allah did not say establish the salah so you will get reward no Allah said is die No, use it.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:42

This is the door

00:17:46 --> 00:17:49

This is a guy who's has a big Jcv standing in a

00:17:51 --> 00:18:05

backhoe so he's got his big digging machine standing in his house and you find him there he's digging with his hand you know his fingers are bleeding So why do we not digging a hole I want the I have to take this big bit somebody's got this big question standing there for what

00:18:07 --> 00:18:17

why are you scraping with your fingers? You will you won't be able to dig this pit in a million years. You got that machine it will do that one in 10 minutes Why Why not? Why aren't you using it?

00:18:19 --> 00:18:27

Keeping the machine no matter how beautifully shiny oh my god knows all the grease polisher everything I painted it no is beautiful.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:45

The guy's got his Ferrari got his fabulous Ferrari standing in the garage shiny. He washes it and polishes everything else. And next next thing he's walking on this way but I want to go there Why? What about the car?

00:18:48 --> 00:18:49

It doesn't make sense.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:56

This is what we are doing. This is the reason why our Islam does not help us.

00:18:58 --> 00:19:03

We have to understand Allah subhanaw taala sent us a deal to us.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:20

Allah didn't send us a didn't send us a bunch of rituals for us to just go and you know just use them and colossal finish. And then my toe Pema Bogut and go out and that struggle and halaal haram everything I have

00:19:21 --> 00:19:22


00:19:24 --> 00:19:37

cassava didn't do that. The Sahaba use the heat. That was their power. That's the biggest weapon, the biggest force, the biggest tool. The biggest elf of the moment is that

00:19:39 --> 00:19:40

the turaga of Salah

00:19:43 --> 00:19:47

to the Sahaba became went from here to there bye.

00:19:49 --> 00:19:57

Bye by leaving Islam by practicing Islam, not by talking about Islam. Not by writing books about Islam. I am not against any of that. Believe me.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:02

I have written 25 books on Islam,

00:20:03 --> 00:20:07

different topics. So I can I can talk I can talk about

00:20:13 --> 00:20:23

all of that is fine. But that must come down into actually living that thing. And that's why we have this class living Islam.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:26

So I'm going to ask you a question.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:37

Do you have to do or I'm going to Chicago. Right? So give me some advice. I want you to give me advice about what

00:20:38 --> 00:20:46

I was doing with Chicago. So I have to pack. What must I take with me to Chicago? Give me some advice. You got the Chicago expert, you give me?

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

One glove, right?

00:20:52 --> 00:20:58

It's very windy and it's very windy and cold minus eight somebody sent me this thing or thing is this 16 degrees with minus eight Celsius.

00:21:00 --> 00:21:02

So I would say one close. No, no, not like this. Yeah.

00:21:04 --> 00:21:05

What else? Anything else?

00:21:07 --> 00:21:08

gloves, hat.

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


00:21:23 --> 00:21:24

Cold medicines. Yeah.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:26

Tell me.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:36

You're telling me things that here? I'm not even using? No, I mean, I'm sitting happily here in this budget with this. So

00:21:39 --> 00:21:41

So why are you asking me all this stuff?

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

Why we'll be traveling.

00:21:49 --> 00:21:50

Outside preparation for what?

00:21:52 --> 00:21:57

For Chicago? Right. Preparation for Chico?

00:21:58 --> 00:22:07

Now, how are I don't take all this stuff, right? I just go. I mean, I'm from a Hot Country, I'm from India. So I just go with my

00:22:08 --> 00:22:11

short band or something and then what happens?

00:22:13 --> 00:22:19

Then you will have a an ice sculpture. Right? Which will be standing like this

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

until someone comes in and melts and I follow.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:27

No, because I take one step and I'm stuck because I have frozen. No.

00:22:29 --> 00:22:32

You understand where I'm getting where I'm going with this.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:41

I'll Walid bin

00:22:42 --> 00:22:46

Abdul Malik. He was one of the one of our of varoma

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

the son of Abdul Malik bin Marwan

00:22:52 --> 00:22:56

so and when he came to Makkah for Ramadan

00:22:57 --> 00:23:03

and October I asked somebody is there any one among the Tabby Is he here?

00:23:04 --> 00:23:06

So they took him to one of the W

00:23:08 --> 00:23:14

so he asked him he said Why am I afraid of death? He said I fear death Why am I afraid of death?

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

So this person

00:23:21 --> 00:23:25

he said to him you fear death? Because you have

00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

not pack for Chicago?

00:23:30 --> 00:23:35

He didn't say Chicago do you get the point I'm making he said you fear death because you have not prepared for it.

00:23:37 --> 00:23:44

He said all your wealth or your palaces all your carpets all the stuff that you have is here in this dunya

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


00:23:46 --> 00:23:47

it's wasteland

00:23:50 --> 00:23:51

there's nothing there.

00:23:52 --> 00:23:59

So if you want to go there and be comfortable and you know live well What must you do?

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

Send stuff no sensor

00:24:05 --> 00:24:15

you know in America for you guys to understand this is difficult. But if I were I go a lot to the Middle East I would speak with with the Tata in different countries.

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


00:24:18 --> 00:24:20

all these experts who come to work there,

00:24:21 --> 00:24:22

they don't get citizenship.

00:24:23 --> 00:24:41

Right, it's banned, they can live their ability or they still work. They still will not give them citizenship. So what what they do is they come they work very hard. They get a small one bedroom apartment or if there is a two or three bedroom apartment or eight people who live in it.

00:24:42 --> 00:24:45

They save the money they send it back home

00:24:46 --> 00:24:49

to India to Bombay to Karachi or wherever

00:24:50 --> 00:24:59

and there this guy is working in Jeddah he's working in Dubai he's working in you know wherever, musket and he's building his house.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

In Hyderabad in Karachi in Bombay, right?

00:25:06 --> 00:25:15

So once in a year, he will come there, he will look at his house, he feel happy about it, he'll make sure it's big. And you know, this, this fitting that fitting this lighting that lighting all of this.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:33

Now, some of them, I've got many friends there. So one guy asked him, I said, Tell me, how many years will you live and work and he said, you know, if I'd like give me the help that strength and so on, so for at least 40 years, because the lifespan of

00:25:35 --> 00:25:37

the the works, life is about 40 years.

00:25:38 --> 00:25:58

So he got there when he was about 25 or so he's going to work there for 40 years. So 65 years. So I said, it's at 65 years, and then maybe we'll get an extension if you get such a new car. So maybe you will get an extension for another four or five years. So at age 70, he is going to go back to Hyderabad. So how long do you think you will live up to that?

00:26:00 --> 00:26:01

Not seven years.

00:26:04 --> 00:26:10

So you are spending the vast majority of your life living in discomfort

00:26:12 --> 00:26:14

to build a house in some country.

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

And go in yo yo who you hope to go and live there. Even if all your hopes come true. This time you spend in that house is much much much less than what you would have spent in this discomfort living here. Doesn't make sense.

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

So how about

00:26:36 --> 00:26:37

we have to go somewhere

00:26:39 --> 00:26:41

where the time we are going to spend there.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:43

There is no end to that.

00:26:46 --> 00:26:51

When somebody is saving money and building a house to live in,

00:26:53 --> 00:26:57

for a very short period of his life, he's spending his whole life

00:26:58 --> 00:27:01

saving money to live in a house

00:27:02 --> 00:27:09

for a fraction of that time. What do you think we must do to build a house in which we are going to live forever?

00:27:14 --> 00:27:23

do you advise me what I must put in my suitcase? for Chicago right? So if you if you now open the suitcase and you find all of this stuff, you say you're okay.

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

You're okay gela when you get there tomorrow, you won't freeze to death, you'll be fine.

00:27:29 --> 00:27:33

So, now if you are advising me what I must put in my suitcase

00:27:35 --> 00:27:37

to go to the asset

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

what must be in it.

00:27:42 --> 00:27:47

And if you open my suitcase and you look in it, what would you be looking for?

00:27:49 --> 00:27:50

in government?

00:27:55 --> 00:27:59

The reason I started with this is because we had is that we are going to talk about inshallah is

00:28:02 --> 00:28:03

it's a heavy squat. It's a very

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

I'm doing like

00:28:08 --> 00:28:09

I mentioned earlier, he said

00:28:11 --> 00:28:13

took hold of my shoulder.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:45

Imagine you know this is like a young boy or something of you will not for example, Robin is a very very dear friend of mine. But I would never hold him by the shoulder not not because I mean, like he's got massive shoulders, but out of other way. Right. Also out of other he is he's my head we have a certain MEP our dear friends but you know, there's a level of respect that you must give to older people too. I mean, I won't go there. But Lisa

00:28:47 --> 00:28:49

Hello, have you ever gone by the neck also.

00:28:54 --> 00:28:55

So here is

00:28:56 --> 00:28:58

grabbing up to like

00:28:59 --> 00:29:10

a VLAN one like this. Imagine the the love that Nebuchadnezzar had for his people that relationship that they had with him. When you read these, I don't just read the words with this think about the whole thing.

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

And until I've noticed, Omar Abdullah Omar, considered this action of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to be important enough to narrate it as part of the hubby's. Think about this.

00:29:25 --> 00:29:28

You could have simply said lamesa salam sent this to me.

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

didn't know that.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:35

He said he grabbed me held me by my

00:29:36 --> 00:29:44

shoulder. And then he said, Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler.

00:29:47 --> 00:29:50

COVID dunya unaka. very

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


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

He said be in this dunya in this world as if you are a traveler.

00:30:01 --> 00:30:02

Another string.

00:30:05 --> 00:30:12

Now, let's think about it. What is the meaning of being in a place as if you are a stranger?

00:30:14 --> 00:30:16

Supposing you are passing by this way,

00:30:18 --> 00:30:22

I'll give you an example. You're passing by this way. And you come into this module.

00:30:24 --> 00:30:29

And as you're praying, you find that there is a leak water that is leaking from that corner.

00:30:31 --> 00:30:37

You never been to this budget, you are passing by your posture and the way you stopped here to pray you created when

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

you saw that there was a leak. Right?

00:30:42 --> 00:30:43

Standing next to you.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:47

Is my brother huruma. But

00:30:49 --> 00:30:51

he also saw the leak.

00:30:52 --> 00:30:59

That Do you think there's going to be a difference in reaction between these two people between the four of us and you as Australia? Is there a difference?

00:31:01 --> 00:31:05

You saw the same thing. But in reaction, is there a will there be a difference or no?

00:31:07 --> 00:31:09

Yes or no? Yes. What's the difference?

00:31:11 --> 00:31:14

As soon as Salah finishing Ravasi Now

00:31:15 --> 00:31:22

we take off where is this money coming from? How does water leaking? Where is it? Why? Because he's not a stranger.

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

He is a

00:31:26 --> 00:31:42

member of the Board he loves this place he lives in this place. He comes here and prays every day. He is concerned about this budget so he is going to be engaged with this technology we have we got to fix this. Do what it takes pay what it does, whatever whatever whatever. But if I'm a stranger hi Kamiya Mashallah.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:45

He doesn't fall on me.

00:31:46 --> 00:31:47

I pray I go.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:51

In this dunya like this

00:31:54 --> 00:31:56

don't stress out. Don't go into depression.

00:31:57 --> 00:31:59

Don't freak out. Don't fight with people.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:02

Don't lose sleep.

00:32:03 --> 00:32:20

Alhamdulillah Allah sent me into this dunya eat halal, or haram Hannah. Work hard. But don't destroy your family in the process. Don't neglect your children in the process. Don't go and destroy your own health in the process. Nadine

00:32:24 --> 00:32:26

and Allah Hola.

00:32:28 --> 00:32:31

Be comfortable hamdulillah and focus on

00:32:33 --> 00:32:34

what is the traveler focusing on

00:32:36 --> 00:32:44

destination right destination for the traveler is focused only on one thing and that thing is what destination

00:32:49 --> 00:32:50

you know I travel all over the world.

00:32:52 --> 00:32:53

And one of the

00:32:54 --> 00:32:58

largest the most beautiful airport in the world is in Singapore

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

Changi Airport in Singapore absolutely beautiful airport. It has a a tropical rain forest inside it has all kinds of you name it it's there in that area.

00:33:14 --> 00:33:16

How many people do think Mr. Flights?

00:33:21 --> 00:33:25

Oh man, you know I love this airport. Forget the right was your window still? Yeah, it's okay.

00:33:29 --> 00:33:31

You will never talk to

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

anybody like that. If there was somebody like that. What would you say?

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

Is the man

00:33:40 --> 00:33:52

the airport? I'm passing through the airport. So Alhamdulillah nice airport beautiful lounge. I want to have a cup of coffee. I go to a nice restaurant have a cup of coffee. But what am I focused on?

00:33:53 --> 00:34:02

On the departure traveling on the departure notice what time is the flight going from which gate? How long does it take me to get to the gate Do I have the time?

00:34:04 --> 00:34:07

People don't worry about that is beautiful restaurant manager says

00:34:08 --> 00:34:10

enjoy yourself, I got to get their plate.

00:34:11 --> 00:34:12

I have to catch that play.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:32

That is the meaning of being a traveler. That is the meaning of being a stranger. The stranger is focused the trap the stranger is not concerned beyond a certain amount with where he is. And the traveler is focused on the destination.

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

What's our destination?

00:34:40 --> 00:34:44

Final Destination is what? General to those insha Allah

00:34:46 --> 00:34:49

asking those maritime Allah gatherers like this is Jonathan those

00:34:51 --> 00:34:55

Allah with sunanda He's

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

in charge. This is out

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

destination shall

00:35:02 --> 00:35:13

Allah mentioned this Allah subhanaw taala said that you are this is your inheritance. So, the more we know what to say whom all worries Oh

00:35:17 --> 00:35:31

Allah genital fear those whom fee to where they will stay forever unless this is your will this is your whereas, this is your inheritance, what is the meaning of inheritance it means that is your right

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

that is your right

00:35:37 --> 00:35:41

but like any inheritance right comes, if you fulfill the responsibilities

00:35:42 --> 00:35:46

the son or the daughter will inherit from the Father

00:35:47 --> 00:35:52

but only provided they fulfill the responsibilities of being with children.

00:35:54 --> 00:35:54


00:35:59 --> 00:36:00

So, let me set

00:36:01 --> 00:36:02

up the webinar

00:36:03 --> 00:36:05

this this then he said,

00:36:06 --> 00:36:11

If you survive till the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:18

And if you survive till the morning, do not expect to be alive in the evening.

00:36:21 --> 00:36:22

What is the meaning of this?

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

apparent meaning is clear. But so what

00:36:30 --> 00:36:33

if I follow this? I am alive here hamdulillah

00:36:34 --> 00:36:38

and when I recommend you can you can vouch for this I'm sitting in front of you talking to you right

00:36:42 --> 00:36:44

now, Rasulo sir, see what

00:36:45 --> 00:36:51

he's saying. Don't expect to be alive tomorrow morning. So if I truly believe this,

00:36:52 --> 00:36:55

that this time I'm sitting here with you.

00:36:57 --> 00:36:59

Tomorrow morning, I'm gone.

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

Tomorrow morning, I will be dead you will get a message to say Jackie died last night. Prepare for the dollar is what I'm believing Why? Because Amazon said this.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:19

So what will I do today? Then? What must I do today? If I really and truly believe this? What must I do? Right?

00:37:23 --> 00:37:32

And we love what I'm doing now is good because I am talking about the greatness of Allah I'm talking about Salah I'm talking about Islam, but this class will end in another maybe 1015 minutes

00:37:34 --> 00:37:39

and if I really believe that tomorrow morning I'm not going to see the sun then what must I do?

00:37:41 --> 00:37:43

I go home and watch Netflix right

00:37:45 --> 00:37:57

now I'ma see this through or something i mean i'm not i'm gonna die tomorrow I don't be there to go in general I don't know. So me let me let me watch binge watching I will watch what this whole series I must know what's gonna happen right?

00:37:58 --> 00:38:06

Or maybe I might go sit in with Facebook and talk to all my friends I mean, you know I don't know where to sit by myself. Let me

00:38:07 --> 00:38:08

if I do that what did you tell me?

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


00:38:13 --> 00:38:18

You will tell me you know what? You come to the masjid you see all of this stuff but you really don't delude yourself.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:20

We use internal

00:38:21 --> 00:38:42

Who says you are you don't as the head is that if you are alive in and I don't believe that you will see the morning you told us the holidays. But you know what? You really don't believe it yourself. Because if that is true, how come this time you've got a four hour five hours, six hours, seven hours? I don't know. This time you are spending doing some nonsense. I mean

00:38:45 --> 00:38:46

a vision of you who don't believe that?

00:38:50 --> 00:38:54

This is the meaning of understanding the I had this orthoses

00:38:56 --> 00:39:04

is to practice it. Minimum I must do if I believe this heavy is to wake up for the hatchet and Ray is

00:39:05 --> 00:39:06


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

I must absolutely make is the fire and Toba and connect myself to Allah subhanho wa Taala and settle my scores if I have harmed somebody if I have done something wrong, I must go talk to the person speak to the person for the person and say please my brother, please forgive me. I don't know I said something. If I hurt you, please.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:31

Minimal, isn't it? I mean, shouldn't I do all this?

00:39:33 --> 00:40:00

As you make sure I mean, did I pay my Zakat this year if I don't pay right on the check finish up. Don't keep anything for the morning, which might cause problem for you if you made a loss. And that is the meaning of saying if you are alive in the night do not believe that you will see the morning if you are alive in the morning. Do not believe that you will see the night What does it mean? It's not some radical speech. It means seven

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

Your account then and there and make sure that you don't carry forward any negative stuff into the next day.

00:40:10 --> 00:40:11

As soon as I was sitting in the masjid

00:40:14 --> 00:40:16

and many, Saba was with him,

00:40:17 --> 00:40:21

and then he said, a man is going to enter now and he is from the people of Ghana.

00:40:25 --> 00:40:25


00:40:27 --> 00:40:30

And who came in Sha, Allah.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:33

The next day,

00:40:34 --> 00:40:42

the same thing happened. Now he's also numbers there and he said, a man is going to enter here. And he is from the people of Japan and South Korea, across into the

00:40:44 --> 00:40:49

third day The same thing happened. So this Abdullah Omar Villanueva, he decided to investigate.

00:40:50 --> 00:41:07

He said, I will go and find out what is it that this person is doing that gives Bashar gave the glad tidings of genda about this man. So he went to Santa Rosa Biram, Delano, and he said, I would like to be your guest, that I bought some issues at home so I want to come and stay with you.

00:41:11 --> 00:41:12

It happens sometimes.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:18

Get into the doghouse, you've been doing some stuff. And so you get chucked out. So what do you do?

00:41:21 --> 00:41:30

You got to find a place where you That's why you need good friends. Right? We'll give you we give you shelter when your wife will do so.

00:41:35 --> 00:41:58

So Satya said yes, please come most welcome. He gave he stayed with him. And he said if if your brother comes to you if your sister comes to you, three days they have a right on you. After that, if you allow them to stay this is your son on them, otherwise they should leave to three days. He's dead for three days. Now he is staying with him he is watching him like a hawk day and night.

00:41:59 --> 00:42:01

At the end of three days he said to him

00:42:03 --> 00:42:10

The reason I came to stay with you is because Masada gave this Bashara about

00:42:11 --> 00:42:14

he said that you are a man of Ghana

00:42:15 --> 00:42:20

so I came to stay with you to see what is it this you must be doing something special

00:42:22 --> 00:42:31

so I want to learn what is this specialty you are doing? But he said that to my surprise in three days I did not see you doing anything special

00:42:33 --> 00:42:35

like you were doing whatever all of us do.

00:42:36 --> 00:42:40

I mean your brain your Salah, you're doing your car you're waking up

00:42:41 --> 00:42:55

so what what all of us who are doing that you did not do anything new anything extra. Anything special. So now I don't know why did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say this about you? What is that?

00:42:57 --> 00:43:02

Zach never says there is something that I do every day

00:43:03 --> 00:43:05

which you could not have seen.

00:43:06 --> 00:43:07

So I'm gonna have number of

00:43:09 --> 00:43:19

Rama vilanova is now you know, his perplex. He says, What is this thing that you did, which I didn't see I was watching you all the day. He said you could not see it because it is inside me

00:43:21 --> 00:43:27

is the words that he said before I go to bed. I forgive everybody.

00:43:28 --> 00:43:34

And during the day, if I have done anything to anybody, I go and seek forgiveness.

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

If I did anything wrong, I go and apologize. And before I go to bed, I forgive every I genuinely and truly forgive everyone I clean my heart and I never carry forward anything.

00:43:48 --> 00:43:57

Obviously if I'm forgiving people in my heart I have this thing I'm saying your life okay I have forgiven so and so somebody else can't see it. That's why you didn't see.

00:43:59 --> 00:44:09

This is the meaning of the key that if I find that night I am alive that I will not be alive next morning. What does it mean? It means we do all this.

00:44:10 --> 00:44:34

We stayed in our connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala we ensure our relationships are in order. We ensure that we forgive other people, we ensure that we seek forgiveness, we ensure that we don't carry forward anything negative into the next day because the next day I am going to open my eyes in a different worlds the world of the bursa the world of the cover the world of the actor.

00:44:36 --> 00:44:37

If that is my again,

00:44:38 --> 00:44:47

then the next day is not here in this world. There's no point in saying tomorrow morning I will speak to brothers or our team because tomorrow morning you're not seeing anybody.

00:44:51 --> 00:44:56

Right browsealoud is gonna put you in your car and throw mud on your face and he's gone. This is a different one.

00:44:58 --> 00:45:00

So can

00:45:00 --> 00:45:01

Distribute right now.

00:45:02 --> 00:45:13

And then final thing in this Hadith of the Lama said, take from your health, for your sickness, and take from your life for your death.

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

What does that mean?

00:45:20 --> 00:45:24

You know how many people I'm sure all of us have been or somebody

00:45:26 --> 00:45:28

who now they are old.

00:45:29 --> 00:45:53

Knees don't work, and the back gives problem. And this and that. And then they wish Oh, you know, I wish I could stand and pray. I wish I could do this. I wish I could do that. When now my health is in w many people said, Oh, if I had my health, I would have gone you know, with you guys, when you're waiting for food. I wish I could go with you.

00:45:54 --> 00:45:56

But there was a time you could have gone

00:45:58 --> 00:45:59

there was a time you had the health.

00:46:01 --> 00:46:07

That is the mean meaning what Allah has given you use it for that destination.

00:46:09 --> 00:46:13

Every day. I remember myself when you make it a habit.

00:46:14 --> 00:46:18

And ask yourself a question and say, What did I do for Allah today?

00:46:20 --> 00:46:28

Write this write this or maybe stick it somewhere on your on your computer screen or on the wall? What did I do for Allah today?

00:46:30 --> 00:46:30

do only one thing.

00:46:31 --> 00:46:37

Don't don't don't make a big list and then you can fulfill not just one thing. But every single day.

00:46:38 --> 00:46:49

Have this with you? I must do one thing only or only with India only to please Allah subhanho wa Taala even something which nobody else even knows. Nobody needs to know.

00:46:51 --> 00:46:53

What did I do for Allah today?

00:46:57 --> 00:47:03

Anyway, will you do Jana? Let's make this near for ourselves. Teach your children also this thing.

00:47:05 --> 00:47:09

Ask them this question. Are you sitting make it a habit? one meal

00:47:10 --> 00:47:20

you must eat as a family whatever meal that is whichever is convenient for you. Whether it's dinner, maybe maybe lunch or one meal, eat as a family everyone together.

00:47:21 --> 00:47:24

00:47:59 --> 00:48:00

A kid is a baby goat.

00:48:02 --> 00:48:04

00:48:06 --> 00:48:11

You have children anytime somebody how many kids you have no kids have children 11 children Mashallah. Mashallah

00:48:16 --> 00:48:22

You know, I'm saying that because there is a difference in how you bring up a baby goat and how you bring up a baby human being.

00:48:23 --> 00:48:30

A baby God needs grass, it needs water, it needs a clean place. It needs a it needs shelter to live. You are done.

00:48:33 --> 00:48:50

You treat children in the same way. You're going to get goats, not human beings. Children need therapy. They need your love. They need your time. They need you to sit with them. They need you to put your arm around their backs. How many of you kissed your son or daughter today?

00:49:22 --> 00:49:23

But those who have fathers

00:49:25 --> 00:49:27

00:49:28 --> 00:49:32

00:49:34 --> 00:49:35

00:49:59 --> 00:49:59


00:50:01 --> 00:50:04

These are the two doors to Jenna

00:50:08 --> 00:50:09

these are the notes

00:50:13 --> 00:50:14

you want to neglect that door

00:50:16 --> 00:50:18

Believe me Monday they will those doors I want to close

00:50:20 --> 00:50:23

one day, those doors when

00:50:24 --> 00:50:26

my father was alive,

00:50:27 --> 00:50:32

my brother and I, we we traveled the world we lived abroad, different places and so on.

00:50:33 --> 00:50:35

Anytime we had any problem

00:50:38 --> 00:50:41

I would for him and I would say this is the issue.

00:50:42 --> 00:50:44

And I went through this difficulty.

00:50:48 --> 00:50:49

His standard response.

00:50:51 --> 00:50:52

Go if you can come to

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


00:50:57 --> 00:50:58

name is Dan.

00:51:01 --> 00:51:10

He just said don't worry, no need to worry. I will catch hold of him and I will not let him go until he gives me what I asked.

00:51:14 --> 00:51:15

This one is done with Allah.

00:51:17 --> 00:51:19

I can vouch for my father.

00:51:22 --> 00:51:32

At this, I can say that as far as I know, for 4045 years my father did not miss the Agile one secret. Never.

00:51:38 --> 00:51:41

These are the days when we didn't even have hot and cold running water in the house.

00:51:44 --> 00:51:56

So you would wake up in the morning, two o'clock to 230 you would go and get cold water. These are the days before plastic so the buckets are made of metal. So you could hear the bucket in the bathroom with clang.

00:51:57 --> 00:52:05

You will make with all that he would pray that he would sit and read read for and he would recite he did not have touch with recitation.

00:52:06 --> 00:52:09

Today if I find if I bother let the Salah

00:52:10 --> 00:52:14

you probably will not play very well he would say it makes so many mistakes.

00:52:16 --> 00:52:18

But I know his approach

00:52:20 --> 00:52:21


00:52:23 --> 00:52:23

he was talking to Allah,

00:52:27 --> 00:52:28

love for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:52:29 --> 00:52:30

he read whatever he knew.

00:52:33 --> 00:52:43

He was a medical doctor. He was a very, very good doctor. But he didn't nobody taught him. He didn't know. But he did whatever he could do to the best of his ability but he did that consistently. And he didn't I do like

00:52:45 --> 00:52:48

this rule of other is do the mother is

00:52:50 --> 00:52:53

value them while they're with you. Don't let them

00:52:57 --> 00:52:58

this is the meaning of leaving Islam.

00:52:59 --> 00:53:07

Leaving Islam is not simply to say Gemini is beneath the feet or feet of mama the Gemini is beneath the feet of your mother co kiss your mother's feet.

00:53:16 --> 00:53:16

That is the meaning of

00:53:18 --> 00:53:39

Yes, life has some good things a handle I enjoyed yes life has some problems. Don't worry about them, deal with them. Finish with them. Don't get stuck with them.

00:53:40 --> 00:53:45

00:54:08 --> 00:54:10

and take from your life for your death.

00:54:11 --> 00:54:20

And if you find the morning, don't believe you want to see the evening. If you find the evening. Don't believe that you won't see the money. This is the meaning of living Islam.

00:54:21 --> 00:54:22
