00:01:24--> 00:01:31

My dear respected brothers, sisters, elders, the topic of my hotbar today is Muslims are role models.

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

Allah subhanaw taala sent us Muslim with a job.

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

That is why we exist.

00:01:40--> 00:01:57

And that job is to teach the world how to live this life in a way that is beautiful, beneficial, profitable, honorable, compassionate for everyone on the face of this planet, human or otherwise.

00:01:59--> 00:02:34

Allah subhanaw taala said in the eyes which I decided before you just now so to Allah Moran quantum Cara Martin. Oh, Khadija Salinas Allah did not say overages meanness, Allah said leanness forward, Eva da Morona Wilma roof was on how an annual Moncure but we don't have Allah Allah subhanaw taala said which means you are the best of people and you have been extracted for the people. Allah did not seminars Allah didn't say from the people, these are for the people. And what do you do? You enjoy and good. You promote all that is good.

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

And you forbid and you prevent all that is evil. And you believe in Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

last week,

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

I was witness to something that happened in

00:02:49--> 00:02:55

the week before. One young man from the high school year came and he accepted Islam.

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

He's about 18 years old. So his name is Steve.

00:03:02--> 00:03:19

So three, four days after that. I was here in southern Maghreb. And usually I come through this door at the back but that day I came around so I would my shoes were there on the on the rack. And when I went for my shoes, I saw a mobile phone on the last windowsill.

00:03:21--> 00:03:29

So now my mind is going I say what kind of insanity what people are the why do they leave the phones here? That's going my mind. I pick up the phone

00:03:30--> 00:03:49

and this guy's screensaver is his pictures. I don't know I know this one belongs to and if so happened that day he had come he prayed memory. And when I went that way, he went out through the front door so he went on the other side. So I went round I ran around the side of the masjid to catch him before he leaves

00:03:52--> 00:03:57

and I got him as a Steve. Here's your phone. He said Oh, thank you very much.

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

I just Steve, please

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

Why do you leave the phone like this? What if somebody takes it?

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

You know what he said to me?

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

What he said to me Hola.

00:04:12--> 00:04:13

Hola is witness.

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

It blew me away.

00:04:19--> 00:04:31

I wanted to go find a hole into which I can call and pull the hole in but after me. You know what he said? He says yes. This is the house of God. These are Muslims who will take my phone

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

he is a Muslim for like three days before that he knows nothing about salah

00:04:41--> 00:04:46

he can barely pronounce the Kalama he prayed Maori with us which means what he was just standing there.

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

He doesn't know anything.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

He says to me, of course I you know, Allah gave me a white beard and enough excuses as the now

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

But of strands, my beer. So I told him the whole spiel about being responsible for your things and blah, blah, blah, whatnot, whatnot.

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

But certainly, is it justified

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

in thinking like that? Or does that kid need a brain transplant? What?

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

What do you think?

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

I've told this story before, I tell you again,

00:05:28--> 00:05:34

in South Africa, in the apartheid regime, which was a

00:05:36--> 00:05:41

Orthodox, Protestant Christian regime,

00:05:44--> 00:05:51

and apartheid laws, meaning segregation, meaning different places for whites and blacks, and Indians.

00:05:52--> 00:06:02

And usually the way they had their cities was the whites were there and the blacks were out there on the other end, and they call them blacks as though they don't call them African Africans, obviously, which is, which is what they are

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

an Indian townships in the middle.

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

In those days,

00:06:11--> 00:06:23

if a Muslim was God's call to depose before as a witness, in a court of law in a case, the Muslim was not required to take an oath to tell us to speak the truth.

00:06:24--> 00:06:35

A Christian in a Christian regime had to put his hand on the Bible and say, I swear to speak the truth and nothing but the truth but a Muslim could just say, what he was asked he could just answer without swearing or anything.

00:06:37--> 00:06:42

This was told me by one of the one of my friends who the judge in the court said to him why

00:06:44--> 00:06:51

it's very unusual, there are practically no white Muslims. So the by definition, all Muslims were either

00:06:52--> 00:07:00

Indian meaning you know, people that looked like this is or very few Africans.

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

I said why?

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

He said, Because they said Muslims don't lie.

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

Muslims do not lie.

00:07:12--> 00:07:15

So there is no need for us to tell them to swear because they don't lie.

00:07:16--> 00:07:20

Who sang this a Christian apartheid regime

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

they are fine with racism they're fine with all of that.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

They are saying Muslims don't lie

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

so I said to him What about now? He said we discovered the truth

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

because when the government became our people, we know the reality

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

then now you go in there your put your hand on the Quran and swear

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

my brother sisters

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

I told you Allah subhanaw taala centers to teach the world how to live

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

how's that?

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

By making glorious put up

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

by talking to the donkey talking the hind legs of the donkey off

00:08:09--> 00:08:14

or by practice by our mommy lots. Which one?

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

Because you know why?

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

People listen with their

00:08:20--> 00:08:21


00:08:23--> 00:08:29

People listen with their eyes. They don't care what you say. Unto the see what you do.

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

You can talk all you want.

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

It has zero effect.

00:08:36--> 00:08:37

If they don't see it.

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

My submission to Brothers Sisters

00:08:42--> 00:08:45

is that as remember that the word Muslim is a verb.

00:08:48--> 00:08:56

Just like Musa Li is a verb. Saw him is a verb. Haji is a word

00:08:58--> 00:09:04

know who is who is supposedly the one who knows about Sarah or the one who prays?

00:09:06--> 00:09:11

Who is the same one who is fasting or one who knows they also are fasting.

00:09:13--> 00:09:21

Who's had the one who made the knee of Al Quran, Amara Bhutan is haram and then he did all the

00:09:23--> 00:09:42

monastic coverage or is it somebody who is maybe he's making a movie or something is a you know TV guy and something easy is following and seeing taking a film of what what is it about? So at the end of that he didn't put on his arm he's not even maybe not even a Muslim who says you have to go there to be a Muslim you just say that's a

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

the government decides that.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

So how do we think that Muslim is not a verb? Muslim is what? Someone who has submitted Himself to Allah subhanho wa Taala which means what

00:10:00--> 00:10:16

Which means that when the Hakama of Allah subhanaw taala and his or her personnel will are juxtaposed their face to face what does he choose? He chooses the Hakama he chooses the order of Allah subhanaw taala How long does it take to choose

00:10:18--> 00:10:18

how much time

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

I lost around it and it didn't leave us to guess that. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in Colorado Rob boo slim con Aslan Tullio

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

ultra marathon, I mentioned Ibrahim alayhi salam

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

someone who Allah showed us as an example, and Allah said when his rep said to him submit he said I have submitted he didn't say let me think about it. I will submit 10 minutes from now I will submit after Salado Marino

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

as slim, as nimble

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

he was Muslim. We are Muslim.

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

What do we say?

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

What do we say?

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

You don't need to answer me.

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

But one day you and I will answer Allah.

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

Make no mistake about that.

00:11:14--> 00:11:16

Make Absolutely No mistake about that.

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

And when we answer Allah subhanaw taala. It doesn't matter

00:11:24--> 00:11:31

which fatwa we are following. It doesn't matter whether we are Shia Sunni Hanafi Shafi, Maliki humbly

00:11:34--> 00:11:40

makes no difference. What matters is did we obey Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

My brothers sisters, that is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala sent his heavy his Nabhi His Rasul Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam

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

as a living example.

00:12:04--> 00:12:15

And Allah subhanaw taala told us Lukka Karnala comb fee Rasul Allah who's worked on Hasson for whom even Ghana arugula was Yama Afra was aka Allah cathedra.

00:12:16--> 00:12:28

Indeed in the life of my Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there is the best example there is a good example for you to follow in the live he didn't say, fie Salah D

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

in his in his salah, or in this or that his life everything

00:12:36--> 00:12:54

is the best example for the for for for you to follow. For whom Allah define this Lehmann Ghana. Your doula will Yeoman Astra was a Corolla cathedra the one who remember who wishes who yearns for the meeting with Allah.

00:12:57--> 00:13:03

Think about this when I read desires, I thought to myself, Allah subhanho wa Taala described this day of judgment

00:13:04--> 00:13:12

in the Quran is so many places Surat on the last origins ama is full of it and also many other places. So the work and this and that.

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

I said if you read those descriptions of the Day of Judgment, who will want to go there? I mean, we have to go there there's no doubt about that. Wanting and not wanting doesn't come into it but somebody here Jhula Well, Yo Ma Hera wants to meet Allah wants to go to the devil, he wants that you have judgment. I say to you, am I crazy? I want the Day of Judgment.

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

Why would I want a day of judgment? For what?

00:13:39--> 00:13:44

With these descriptions, Allah cotterman Hatha Yoga Toluca.

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

And so on and so on.

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

And then the penny drop.

00:13:51--> 00:14:30

And I said to myself, read the read the, the ayah. Before that. What is that? Allah said, the one who yearns for the meeting with Allah and His and for the Day of Judgment is the one who followed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam in his life, therefore, all of those descriptions and all of those frightening things. Insha Allah will not apply to that person, man or woman, they will be protected they will be shaded under the shade of the earth. So Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Jalla Jalla who they will merely be witnesses, they will not experience all of that and ask this for all of you and for myself, insha Allah.

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

My my brothers and sisters, these doors are mine or anybody's are worthless, if they are not followed by individual action to make this dua happen by the individual by the person and I'm not saying that rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that to the sahabi he gave me a lot of sort of allah sallallahu sallam, I want to be with you in Jana, I want you to be I want me to be your companion in Jana. Let me say please make dua he said I will make dua but you help me

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

A dua with your actions since when does the doer of the Salah need any help?

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

There I do have that also lead you have

00:15:13--> 00:15:24

Surah Salazar who is teaching us a lesson he's saying the same please make dua she has made me a god and then my food is haram My business is haram and eating haram and buying haram I'm selling haram

00:15:29--> 00:15:34

the halal of water the Reverend sisters very very simple test. Let us look at our own lives.

00:15:37--> 00:15:54

And starting this moment, make the NIA now as soon as you go home do it. Get out of every disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala without exception, because Allah subhanaw taala said yeah, you are Lavina Armand who holo facil me?

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


00:15:56--> 00:15:58

God fatten

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

laser Jews one

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

gaffer then complete, not bits and pieces.

00:16:08--> 00:16:22

When at the W Hotel audition, I do not follow the footsteps of Shiva. Why is Allah saying not follow the footsteps? Because when you are following the footsteps, there are two conditions. One is you follow the footsteps when the person is not there.

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

If the person is there, the adviser will tell you don't follow him. They won't say don't follow his footsteps.

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

Don't follow him. Don't go with him.

00:16:34--> 00:16:49

But when the person is not there, only the footsteps are there. So don't follow the footsteps. Therefore, first thing is what the individual the shaitan is not present at that time. Second point is what if you follow the footsteps? Guess who's responsible?

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

That is why shatta will show on the Day of Judgment Fallout Hello, Mooney. Walu ANVISA calm you will say Don't curse me curse yourself.

00:16:59--> 00:17:02

Don't send Lana don't miss Atlanta on yourself.

00:17:04--> 00:17:32

I didn't drag you I didn't catch you by the scruff of your neck. I didn't handcuff you and take I worked my paths. I suggested to you You took my suggestion. You decided to walk on that path. You knew what Allah had told you. You knew what the Rasul Allah is Salama told you, you decided to ignore Allah, you will decide to ignore that. So you decided to walk on my path. Salam Alaikum Goodbye. I'm going to do that place and you are coming with me.

00:17:35--> 00:18:04

Now what about sisters? I remind myself and you let's stop playing games. Let us stop playing games. We are seeing Allah subhanaw taala is showing us his miracles as I speak on both sides. Allah subhanaw taala showed us a miracle where a man who owns 32 multistoried apartment buildings 32 multistoried apartment buildings do something in your mind. What is the rental of that man? Well, how much rent is he getting?

00:18:05--> 00:18:15

is standing in the gravy line with three loaves of bread in his hand because all of those 32 buildings are flattened in 10 seconds.

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

And of course we have the other miracles where after 12 days

00:18:22--> 00:18:39

a mother and two children come out of their out of the rubble healthy. When we know that without water a person can survive between three and five days. This is 12 days Elijah and his miracles. Allah is showing his holder that 100 Allah Allahu Akbar.

00:18:42--> 00:18:49

You know the problem with that, you know the problem with miracles. You know the problem with modules that is a big problem. You know what that is?

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

There is no more excuse.

00:18:55--> 00:19:01

The hot jet has been established. Has no more excuses. You can't say I didn't know.

00:19:04--> 00:19:09

Please, let us take heat. Let us take one. Let us stop playing games.

00:19:11--> 00:19:18

It is your life. It is my life when I stand before Allah subhanaw taala nobody is going to come and stand next to me.

00:19:20--> 00:19:23

And when you stand before Allah, nobody will stand next to you.

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

Before you do anything or anyone look out for yourself

00:19:31--> 00:19:36

the whole authority has asked for Hola Hola. Hola, como si el Muslimeen firstfruit in Nova for Rahim.

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

Ibrahim Ali Muhammad Muhammad Majeed

00:20:37--> 00:20:42

as I mentioned your sisters, Allah subhanaw taala showed us the way

00:20:43--> 00:20:50

and the way is to follow the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa he was I was

00:20:51--> 00:20:56

merely me in this life. No matter what you do, you're following somebody.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

No matter what your appearance, the somebody whose appearance you are following, knowingly or unknowingly.

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

Right? No matter what.

00:21:11--> 00:21:16

At the end of the day, you're following someone ask yourself, why not Maha masala?

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

Why not Rasul Allah he says

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

there's nothing original that a human being can do believe me and I didn't say that I was taught to send that 2500 years ago.

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

Everything is following something else.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

Do what is called the root cause analysis and we'll get there

00:21:40--> 00:21:43

why not follow Mohamed Salah Allahu Allah you Samson.

00:21:46--> 00:21:52

Now, for those who follow him SallAllahu Sallam and may Allah make us all among them.

00:21:53--> 00:22:02

Allah's rank telogen call him quantum to Hebrew and Allah vata rione yo Habib Gu La Jolla, Fidlock and global Allah for

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

Allah subhanaw taala gave the

00:22:06--> 00:22:16

ultimate gift. Allah subhanaw taala said to his enemies Allah, Muhammad wa sallam say to those who claim to love Allah

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

you people make this claim right?

00:22:20--> 00:22:26

They claim to love Allah say to those who claim to love our Master Muhammad Allah follow me make my Teva.

00:22:29--> 00:22:34

Factory only Allah did not say the only he didn't say obey me. He said follow my just follow

00:22:36--> 00:22:41

and what will happen? You have income Allah, Allah will love you

00:22:44--> 00:22:53

well fill up on the rover como lo for him the boundary condition, the minimum that will happen is Allah will forgive all your sins and if Allah forgives all your sins Jana is yours.

00:22:57--> 00:23:12

Just think about this. What is the diff? Why did Allah use the word ithuba when Allah subhanaw taala has used the word ie that far many more times in the Quran, Abdullah Rasul how many times

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

but in this higher when it comes to following the Sunnah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah Allah did not obey why

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

obviously doesn't mean disobey. Allah use the word which is higher than obedience, a word which is the expression the ultimate expression of love, and that is imitation or emulation.

00:23:39--> 00:23:46

Obedience has a boundary condition which is that there should be a cause there should be a reason to obey

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

you give an instruction the person obey the resource

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

but emulation imitation

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

we have any number of examples

00:23:59--> 00:24:01

we are the so called influencers

00:24:02--> 00:24:09

may Allah have mercy on our on us I mean just think about the the kind of people we use and we call them influencers what what is their life like?
