Hola Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah shuffelin VA will mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah hottie Valley he was. Seldom does it even Catherine cathedra from abajo mighty brother and sisters in our series of
classes on living Islam.
I want to talk to you today about
an issue which is absolutely a core issue. It is the most fundamental, the most core at the very heart of the matter and that is the purpose of our existence on this planet on planet Earth. And Allah subhanho wa Taala described and mentioned that purpose, where he said we'll come up with a novel into Diablo two, nothing in the statement Allah said I have not created the enzyme, the human being and the jinn for any purpose other than my worship.
Sisters, this worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala the another name for that is the Coronavirus manager. So every time we remember Allah subhanho wa Taala let us remind ourselves that we are at that moment, in that action engaged in the vicar of Allah, whatever the nature of that Vicar might be, for example, I'm talking to you you're listening to me this is the core of Allah subhanaw taala.
Now, what is the benefit of that?
How does it help us and this is something that I will talk to you about today inshallah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable me to say that which is correct, that which is that which is the truth that which will benefit you and me and to save me and to save you from anything which is the opposite of that, we ask and seek and that is protection, from shaytan and from knifes and from anything that leads to misguidance. And we ask for guidance, because there is nobody who can guide except Allah subhanho wa Taala.
I will just as First and foremost, let me begin by reminding myself and you about the ayat of the Quran. With regard to the Quran, there are many that is but one of the most powerful, most beautiful of them is from sort of Baccarat
Rooney, as Coco, Allah said, you remember me and I will remember you, you do my rigor, and I will do your secret.
the Hadees also Sallam with regard to this, this particular ayah
is a very beautiful Hadith, where
Surah Surah Salam mentioned this and he said,
that when my slave remembers me,
I remember him, if he remembers me, within himself, I remember him within myself, and when he remembers me in a gathering, then I remember him in a gathering that is better than his.
Now, I want you to think about this and I want you to
think about this. And think about this particular artist. The idea is not simply to you know, decide I and I have this and listen to them and go home The idea is to try to internalize this knowledge and say, how is this knowledge beneficial for me. And the way to internalize, internalize that is to reflect on this. So reflect on this is only one simple thing, which is in both of these, they're hired and they have these widgets. Allah says, Allah will remember you.
First Bruni, as Coco, hello, Allah say, remember me and I will remember.
And in the Hadees Sallam said the same thing where he said, Allah, Allah said, that when my slave remembers me, I remember and ultramarathoner further clarified that in terms of the two ways in which we can remember by ourselves or in a gallery, and Allah subhanaw taala said, He will remember that particular slave. Now, obviously, when he is when we are talking about remembering in a gathering, it means that anyone who is in that gathering is included in those in the list of those who are remembering Allah subhanaw taala. So all of them will be remembered by Allah Allah said in a gathering that is better than theirs and obviously, the gathering of Allah subhanaw taala is the
the macabre boon
of the Malaika of the angels, who are the most honored the most high of the angels who surround the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
My brother and sisters, therefore, I want
When I reflect on it myself and I want to reflect on this and say, what does it do to me, when I think about myself in this context, I say I am the one who Allah is remembering on his throne.
And remembering is what? How do you remember Allah by taking his name by talking about his attributes? So we say Allah, we cry, we cry, he wishes Subhan Allah, we say Alhamdulillah the Illa Illa Allah, Allah Akbar, when our whole
and many other things. So we remember by taking the name of the one we are remembering. So when Allah subhanaw taala said, I remember you what is happening there, what is happening there is in a way that suits His Majesty and grace. Allah subhanho wa Taala is actually mentioning your name and mining on his
Swan, Allah Allah, Allah give us a taste of this, the sweetness of this a little bit of
a ray often knew of being remembered by Allah subhanho telogen.
The very fact that I can tell you and talk to you about all this and I have not dropped dead out of the glory and majesty of Allah is proof of the fact that I'm also using words, may Allah protect me from myself,
and wellness monitor and give the words the true weight of those words, manage, monitor, introduce those in my heart and your heart.
Because the biggest benefit
of getting the knower of the L
is that it drives away the darkness of misguidance.
What is the darkness of his guidance, the darkness of misguidance is to consider anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala to be superior to consider anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala to be able to harm you or benefit you in any way whatsoever.
Just two aspects.
Now you might say, Well, you know, I don't consider anybody to be superior.
After all, I see a lot Burnham which Allah
and I do not believe that anyone can harm me and or benefit me other than Allah, because I believe that there is nobody who can harm or benefit except en la, la, la, la, la, la la la la.
You might say that, I might say that my point is saying is not enough. If in fact, this is the case that I need to look into my heart and you need to look into your heart and see if there is any fear.
If there is any anxiety,
if there is any.
worry if there is any depression, if there is any stress.
Because if these things are there, then it means that my statement that there is no one greater than Allah. My statement that nobody can benefit or harm except Allah is not correct. I'm only saying that. I don't really believe it. It's not in my heart. Because if it was in my heart, then depression and stress and fear and anxiety and worry would all disappear.
To give you an example, what is the proof
that a room is lighted.
The proof that our room has light in it is that there is no darkness in the room.
Right? If you run the lights
to turn the switch on,
and the room is still dark, what would you say?
users which is not working? You will see the bugs are fused. You will see the light is not there is no there's no power, there's electricity, the light is not coming on.
Because then the very evidence and proof that there is light is that darkness disappears.
Kolja and Haku was
in Alberta, Canada, and North America Jay Obama's allies Ella the truth has come and fall short has disappeared. Fall suit has gone it is the nature of fall short to disappear
in the battler Ghana the hookah.
It is the nature of darkness to disappear when light comes.
Darkness has no existence by itself. If I asked you to define darkness, define what is darkness. What will you say? You will say darkness is the absence of light
Is there any other definition of darkness? darkness means what darkness means there is no like.
So by itself darkness has no existence. If I tell you bring light, you can bring light you can turn the light on you can
bring a torch or even light a match or lamp or something. What if I tell you bring darkness?
How will you bring darkness?
Right, I'm sitting in the room, which is well lighted. And I tell you don't touch anything, just bring darkness.
But if I'm sitting in a dark room, and I tell you don't touch anything, but bring light, you can bring light.
Because light has existence,
darkness has no existence, darkness is the name that is given to the absence of light. So also misguidance has no existence misguidance is the name given to the absence of guidance.
Around sister This is something that we need to understand and that is what will give us confidence to live in this world shall for whatever time Allah has given us.
And this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala told us and this is what he told us, what is their lightswitch
What is their source of illumination? What is that source of it is
the source of it, there is one and that is Allah subhanaw taala de Medellin,
la de mon bapta wanna kyndall La Jolla de Sha,
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa sallam as a means of comforting, he's around Oh, my heavy, heavy,
don't get worried, don't get distressed because people are not listening to you. Because people don't accept or don't understand and that they're not, and they're not, you know.
They're not listening to what you are saying. Don't be upset about that.
Because you cannot guide we have not given guidance to you, you cannot guide will you like so, there is no failure if you have not been able to guide somebody, if somebody has not accepted your guidance, it is not your failure, you will not be blamed, you will not be held responsible, you will not be asked called to account for this. Because Allah is the one who guides and Allah subhanaw taala guides will he likes to get. And this is not random. It's not to say that Allah subhanaw taala picks and chooses and say, Well, this is a person here who is a beautiful on 100% wonderful, lovely human being who's really sincere about wanting guidance, but I'm not going to guide him.
I want to see him blunt. So I'm going to throw him in that fight. No problem, I will not guide this person. And I'm not saying that.
And I'm not saying that guidance is given to anybody who sincerely wants it. And
does not look at your faces, except your hearts. So it doesn't matter if you're black or white. It doesn't matter if you're Arab or non Arab. It doesn't matter if you're Indian or Pakistani or Bangladeshi or, or European or American or whatever. Yeah. By Icelander it doesn't matter your color, black, white, anything, nothing matters, gender doesn't matter your man hooba makes no difference. The only thing which makes a difference is do you sincerely want guidance in your art? Or are you holding it and saying, Well, you know, I want guidance in a particular way, I want guidance given certain conditions, meaning that currently I am doing this this and this and this
guidance, whatever it is, must not prohibit me from doing these things, I must continue to do that I have a certain lifestyle, I have a certain way of living my life, I must continue all of that. And in given all of these boundaries which I am setting I want but guidance within those boundaries. Sorry, doesn't work like that.
doesn't work like that. Because you are talking to or you are seeking guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala Jelena who, who is the creator of the Sustainer and the maintainer and the protector of the entire universe. He is Rockwood Alameda. He is Rob Rashid Karim. He does not follow your rules. He does not obey your orders. He doesn't care what you want and what you don't want. You have to go to him as a supplicant. You have to go to him and beg him for his for his mercy and forgiveness and you have to say Allah please guide me Allah you are the one who guides so please guide
what is that guidance, whatever you give his guidance and what did he give? He gave us the four annelle Karim. He gave us his Kitab Jalla Jalla Lu and he sent us his Nabi Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah
I was alarmed to read that book to us and to demonstrate how we are supposed to live our lives according to that book. This is what America did. Allah subhanaw taala della Delgado sent us his kita. And he sent us his nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to demonstrate to us how we are supposed to live according to that book.
And the first and foremost principle of that is first Rooney.
remember Allah and Allah will remember that said, Remember me and I will remember you. So I want you to reflect on this word, does it mean if Allah is remembering me?
Just think about them. What does it mean? If Allah is remembering?
And I told you, that is also Allah said, my slave remembers me by himself, I remember him by myself. When he remembers me within himself, I remember him within myself, whatever that means, in the context of His Majesty and grace, however, that means, we don't ask that question.
And then Allah said, if he remembers me in a gathering, I remembering I remember him in a gathering which is better than his
brothers sisters, this is a question we need to ask and see what does this mean?
What is the benefit? What happens to me if I am aware of the fact that my Rob delillo is remembering is taking my name on the ash?
Tell me, what is the boundary condition? What is the default setting? What is the minimum that will happen to somebody? Who Allah subhana wa Taala remembers, in the company of the makapuu? What will happen to this person when he meets a lot of adults?
What will happen to that person is that that person will be recognized, will not be a stranger will be recognized by those
a lot of course knows.
But the one I will say Allah, this is the one we're talking about. Yeah, this is the one whose name used to take.
What is the value of that?
Going into a into a place my brother and sisters?
we think we have problems. We think we have anxiety, we think we have fears because we have forgotten
that day, which is going to come
about which everyone had anxieties, including the best of creations, the umbrella of no damage,
even though they have been given the bizarre option,
the Sahaba for sorceress, Allah who even though they were given the bizarre option,
there is one thing about which every human being who understands Allah not talking about the child, I'm not talking about the ignorant masses.
The great unwashed multitude who doesn't even know what lies he doesn't care what lies it makes no difference because everybody's going before Allah Subhana Allah you can care or not care makes no difference. But you have to understand
who are we talking about? We're talking about those
who in New Orleans, Ronald, who are connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala 24 seven who live their lives, to the best of their abilities
in a way that pleased Allah subhanho wa Taala that was likely to please a Muslim.
Yet there is one time they were there what there isn't was one time one moment in their lives about which they were all anxious and that moment was the moment of meeting Maluku.
The moment of depth.
In Arabic literature, there is this
character called jufa.
He's like the he's the equivalent of, of
Milan, so Deen in Farsi and literature.
So there's Judah and
Milan, so the there are, they were actually historically they existed they were they were people were known.
But their their beautiful situation was that they pretended to be
to be just funny clowns, you know, foolish.
But that was their way of teaching.
So these were inshallah people who were very wise and people who melos relatively pleased with them.
These people were people who were, you know, what
we would want us to be who Allah is pleased with,
but the way they charge
Through funny stories and by saying things which are unexpected and so on, so forth. So, the story about this person is that somebody asked him, they said, Do you know when the Day of Judgment is? He said yes.
This person asking this question are very surprised, you know, that Yeah.
He said when is it
is that there are two
drivers it gets even more perplexing and interesting. So, when is the day of judgment? Do you know that he said yes.
So, he said, So, when is it said there are two
bands that will what he says there is try to Sora and try to uncover
the small camp and the boot camp
as well they have just went to the big one.
So, the manager will
tell me what
the man said you know that the AMA to saga the small Day of Judgment is the day where Allah subhanho wa Taala will gather everybody on the plane of Asher and Allah will be on his throne and the Malika will be there and so on and so on and so on all of that is that is welcome him.
So when I say that Wait is that which is the busier
if there is a small camera
then which is the clamato Cobra which is the boot camp,
the mindset the boot camp is when I meet Allah promotes
my day and moment of depth.
So, his question he asked him well, how so when you are saying something which is the opposite of whatever I word, whatever I know. So, you know, explain the answer, look, on the day of judgment, all of this is true. Everyone is gathered alive.
But you know, when I go there, I am going before
I am going before
I am going before the one whose mercy has no boundary
whose Mercy is always at the peak. Am weighing before the one who's near is
the one who's most forgiving, Most Merciful. He says that is not a problem.
That is not a problem. That's what he said the big one is when I made malformed mouth I will meet him alone. There is no one to help me that is the big problem. He said this is the travel to so this is the capital cover. This is the grammar This is the big problem. I am going to beat my record box.
And at that time, there is no one to help me. Remember when you wait,
if you are the one whose name Allah subhanaw taala was taking on is
when multiple boss comes to you. He's coming to a friend.
He's coming to a friend.
He's not coming to Australia. He's not coming to an enemy of Allah.
He's not coming to somebody who he has been sent to punish.
He's coming to somebody who knows who he knows who's there he has heard and he has heard his name from
who there is nothing greater than Allah.
Malika louder your name from Allah Serrano direct.
Morocco mod heard your name from Djibouti? Larissa. What is the need for this?
The daily for this is that Allah subhanho wa sallam said when Allah subhanaw taala loves a person who does Allah Allah Allah loves the one who makes it tick.
that God Allah kathira
who remembers Allah in plenty?
So Nova is an observed, but I'm not one of the loves somebody. Allah subhanaw taala called zebra is the IGP I love so and so Allah will take your name.
ask Allah to take your name.
And to name you to gibril a salah and to name you honestly.
Say I mean.
So Allah subhanaw taala calls me Joseph told us and James debri I love this person. So you also love him.
This is the Hong Kong of Allah, Allah. So then gibreel is also loves the person and given his announces in the heavens to all the inhabitants of the heavens, that Allah subhanho wa Taala
loves this person loves so and so
and Louisa loves it.
The love of that person is put into the arts of all the inhabitants of the heavens and the love of that person. And is for that person and respect for that person is put into the hearts of all those who inhabit the earth.
at the minimum,
molecule motors heard your name from jabril a Santa and Dean, he didn't just hear your name randomly. No. He was told that Allah loves this person.
Allah love this person. So when Malabo mouth comes for you, he is coming to a friend. He's going to somebody who he has been told Allah loves his purse.
What is the benefit of doing the seeker of Allah?
This is the benefit of
that that day.
Now chiamato Cobra, really, the beauty of when I'm alone
will make will be made easy for me.
what is the effect
of the fact that ninja Sallam said that love for this person will be put into the hearts of people of the Mallika of the inhabitants of the heavens, and love for that person will be put into the arts of people who inhabit the earth.
So Allah Allah subhanaw taala is witness to this.
This is so true.
I've seen this so many times in the lives of those who do the vicar of almost vanta
that strangers love them, that people have nothing to do they have never seen saw them in their lives, when they meet them, they meet them as if they are meeting their most beloved person.
They honor them, they respect them, they love them, they shower, whatever they can on them, they open their hearts and their homes to the
And all this happens without this person making any effort toward
the person who they are respecting the person who they are loving the person who they are listening to. And based on what that person tells them, they're changing their lives, this person did not do anything.
To get that love from those people, he did not advertise himself, he was not canvassing for votes.
This person was not putting out stuff on Facebook and whatnot.
Praising himself or talking about himself nothing.
Allah subhanaw taala puts the love of that person in the hearts
rather than just do the amendments of the new
let us get into this. And let us remember Allah subhanaw taala Let not your tongue be silent at any time. Anytime you are not talking something beneficial, useful work related to somebody or religion or with relation to building good relationships and so on. Keep on making the secret.
And even when you are talking to people and so on, let the seeker of Allah subhanaw taala run in your heart and mind. Like the OS, the operating system runs on your computer 24 seven, it doesn't stop
no matter what software is working on the face of it.
Let our operating system become the core of almost
that every breath we take. Have the name of
I'm not asking you to make a you know drama of this. Let this just become the nature of the person. Let it become your nature. Let me make it manage
that every breath I take takes the name of Allah as I inhale Allah as I exhale
so that when the final breath goes out, it is going out with the name of Allah.
So two benefits one Allah takes your name on is us. America no you recognize you.
America Mark comes to me too. He knows you. He recognizes you respect you. He loves you because Allah tala put your love it was our
number two. love for you is established in the world. Tell me how much time and energy we spend on wanting to be popular
Facebook likes Twitter, artes, Instagram likes hearts, whatnot. How much of our time and energy is focused on this absolute nonsense.
Whereas real love, you really want people to love you than love Allah.
Because if you love Allah, people will love you.
If you make the vigor of Allah, people will love.
That is rude. Don't Camus robots don't go running away and people because people is like a shadow The more you run behind the shadow the shadow will run away from you will catch it. But if you run away from the shadow, the shadow follows you, it will never leave you.
It will never leave you.
So focus yourself in a way where
you are facing the sons of the shadow will be and will always be behind, it will always keep coming back.
Turn yourself towards Allah subhanho wa Taala The world will become your shadow
and you will follow
no matter where you are.
Turn away from another monitor
in the shadows before you and you will run behind the shadow you will never catch up. That is the nature of things.
what happens to the one as I mentioned to you the heart which is filled with the vicar of Allah, meaning the Hachette of Allah liquor is not just words liquor is the is the feeling of that and what is that feeling that feeling is called kushala. That feeling is the or and majesty of Allah, which results in nor which results in light of guidance which drives away what every negative emotion.
The heart of the believer, the heart of the Zakat is filled only with the seeker of Allah, it has no place for hatred, it has no place for
love of anything in the dunya of vital law, whether it is material raw material, or you or whatever, it has no place for anxiety, it has no place for depression, it has no place for doubt.
It is filled with a neurotransmitter.
So such a person lives with complete and total confidence no matter what is happening around him in the world.
Today, as I'm sitting and talking to you,
14th of December,
the electoral college is going to vote on the election of President Trump
on the election actually, when not off President Trump but you know,
Trump in mind.
And we will know,
a little later today, of who actually got elected, and whose election
who succeeded and who didn't succeed.
And I can tell there's a lot of anxiety a lot of people sitting here wondering, I don't know what will happen, what will happen.
Same thing, go to some other country go to India, for example, the validation is happening,
where the government is trying to bring in these bills,
which will literally hand over the country to
to the billionaires
and the rest of the population will get enslaved to them
all in the name of opening up markets and so on and so forth.
So there's a lot of anxiety associated with that, what will happen, what will happen
and so on and so forth.
But the one who has the vicar of Allah in his heart, the one whose heart is illuminated with the glory and majesty of Allah is he bothered about any of this?
He's not bothered because he knows one very fundamental thing which is that whatever happens will happen only if Allah allows it to happen.
Whatever it is,
on the face of it, whether it seems to be good, or it seems to be well,
unless it was a Santa crochet,
whoa, whoa, whoa, Pooja worship.
Allah, Allah said it is possible that you may like something, but there is harm in it for you. And it is possible that you may love something but there is you you may you may you may hate something and there is benefit in it. And Allah No, you don't know. It is possible you will like something and there is our it's possible they will dislike something and they will benefit
and Allah knows a lot
So the one who does like you're the one who has the record of honor is our
he or her who's engaged in the in the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala What does that person do? That person is not bothered because he knows that whatever is going to happen,
will happen only if Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees and if only Allah subhanaw taala wants
not in any other way.
So, if that is the case, and if I am doing the vicar of Allah,
then what do I want to happen? I want whatever Allah wants.
So, whatever happens, what is my position? I say Alhamdulillah
all praise and all thanks to you. Yeah.
You might say, Well, you know, something bad happens, you go to jail under Yes. Because I know that whatever bad is happening in that circumstances,
the evil of it will not apply to me. Why? Because Allah is taking my name on is us. If Allah is mentioning me by name, how can anything evil happen to me?
You might say, Well, you know, physically if you are harmed, but there is not even
the one who Sharif is Amina? Is he dying or is he living?
So what happened to him? Is it evil or is it good?
If a person gets sick, if a Muslim, a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If he or she gets sick, forever getting getting sick is a big thing. Amazon has an absurd even Athar will not prick, or does not prick the foot of a believer, but that Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive us in for that person.
So on the face of this, this person got sick,
something within quote, which is bad, but what is happening to this person, the hora and the end of a sickness, this person comes out of the sickness free from sin.
If it is a terminal sickness, then the sickness cleans him or her and when he dies, he dies free from sin shall
we don't ask for these things. We don't ask for calamities. We don't ask for sickness, we don't ask for death.
But we understand it. Because we see it. We look at it with our knowledge. So we see the reality of it. We are not misguided by it. We don't start looking at it, like people who are ignorant.
So we shall hamdulillah
if I lose money,
if I lose my job,
what do I say? I say Alhamdulillah Why? Because the one I lost, I lost the job. I didn't lose my provider.
Think about that.
If you borrowed money on interest, you lost your provider.
Because you signed a declaration of war with Allah subhanaw taala who is on double volatility
which is which is worse.
Somebody who loses a job
he lost the means. But the one who creates the means is there. So if one door is shut, so what? So what
is an umbrella? So now Allah wants to give me from sources that I cannot imagine? Money when a Salam is sitting in a room she has been locked into that room for our own safety by Zachary Allah salam, he comes back, he opens the door outside, the door was locked, she was safe. He opens the door. He enters the room and there is a fresh fruit out of season fruit which is sitting there
and it's not as scattered on the floor. And the fruit must have come in some, some containers also.
Jamar Yamanaka Maria, where did you get this from? What did she say?
She said this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Who gives your home a year
to His provision to whoever he wants without counting.
So hamdulillah I lost my job American blacks were brilliant, fantastic. What about my children? What about my family? What about them?
Did I create them? Am I their Creator? Am I there? Are they worshipping me? What was I say to them? I say to them, ask Allah. I am asking Allah you ask Allah. He created you.
He made me the means of providing for you. Now I lost my job.
So tell us monitor. He knows already but you ask him because he's the only one who likes those who ask. Allah is the only one who likes those who ask, as well as he asked only Allah because he's the only one who likes those who ask. Ask him
And sadly, Allah praise providers. Don't say give my dad a job. No, no, no, you provide us. If Allah wants to provide you,
through your dad through your mom, very good if he wants to provide all of you from a
source that you cannot imagine. So here's the big one.
This is the benefit of the
more in the next class inshallah, for now, reflect on this, reflect on these two or three things and see how it applies in your life. As well as matter to fill your heart with this book, to fill your heart with discussion, to fill your heart with our code, and to free your hearts from all doubt or anxiety, all fears, all stress, and all depression was on lalana when he was
