Arambula we are coming to a close of
the series of lectures on reflecting on the Quran
and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the trophy, to follow
his orders and to follow the Daya the guidance that he sent through His Habib Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah highly value so Salah
because in that and only in that is higher only in that is blessing.
Inshallah from next week onwards, we you are going to be seeing a series of lectures on
of lectures of the seer of the Quran, of all the surah of the Quran Inshallah, in the order of revelation, not in the order of how it is written in the Quran, but and the order of revelation, which came first and then next and so on, so forth. And this series of tavsiye lectures, lecture that are done by our staff. Dr. One Medallia has a G
habit of Allah Norman Brigadoon. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to
benefit from these beautiful lectures and to reward our staff for
all the work of sharing his knowledge with us Alhamdulillah.
In conclusion of what I have been talking to you over the last so many weeks,
I want to reiterate and say again, that there are two ways to guide anybody. One is to give the person a map and tell them to follow it. The danger with that is that the person may not understand the map completely and may misinterpret some directions or may not be able to deal with unexpected situations that may arise during the journey. The person may have some questions about the map but he can't talk to the map.
And they may still not reach their destination even though they had a map.
And absolutely sure fire way
of guiding anybody is to send someone who knows the way and say, follow Him and you will be guided and that is what Allah subhanaw taala did. Allah his route that I said to call it Allah Allah to Rasulullah for in our low for in nama la he Maha Mila by La Kuma Milcom, we're into Tierra Whoa, that do ma Allah wa SULI Illa Allah whole movie,
Allah Jalla Shanno said which means, say, obey Allah and obey the Messenger of Allah, Allah highly useful.
But if you turn away, he the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is only responsible for the duty placed on him, which is to convey Allah subhanaw taala his message and you are responsible for the duty placed on you,
which is to obey and follow that message. Now, if you obey Him, you will be on the right guidance for into to do
what we're in to do.
That Allah's Mata mentioned very, very clearly we're in to do that. If you obey Him, you will be guided. If you don't obey Him, you cannot be guided.
The messengers duty is only to convey the message in a clear way. Now ask yourself this question. So why didn't Allah simply say if you obey Allah, you will be on the right guidance. At the end of the day, it is obedience to Allah subhanaw taala solo Salah Salem is not preaching anything on his own. He is not saying something that he is inventing right? Allah subhanaw taala mentioned is very very clearly
where he said that as soon as salaam
does not speak of his own will, he says only that which has been revealed to him
Allah subhanho wa Taala if he could have simply said, obey Allah, but Allah did not say that.
Allah doesn't obey the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
Now we seem to think that the Sunnah,
that following the Sunnah is left to our discretion to follow are not as we wish. If that were the case, Allah Jalla Jalla who would not have said with respect for Salah if you obey Him, you will be on the right guidance. Obedience to the messenger SallAllahu Sallam is a fundamental pillar of Islam.
To obey Rasul Allah says Allah and to follow his sunnah is fourth.
And we will be held accountable for it.
It is essential for us to obey the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa liyu Severson
mama you ut Rasulullah faculte Allah. Allah subhanaw taala showed the connection. He said the one who obeys the messenger SallAllahu Sallam has obeyed Allah.
And why is that because the message is Allah Salah only conveys the orders of Allah subhanaw taala
olmayan tieguanyin Hawa in her illa wa hewing you he does not speak by himself of his own will and desire and wish He only says what has been revealed to him
the importance of the Rasul Allah is haraam. It is not my ability I cannot I don't have the ability to truly convey how important it is. I'm trying to do it to the best of my ability. And let me tell you, let me let me reiterate and emphasize that if you leave Rasul Allah is Allah is Allah and hand you will be completely and totally misguided.
Seriously, my brothers sisters,
seriously understand this.
See that at the mercy of people who understood this, there was a young Jewish boy who used to hang out.
You know, who was to be around in Salem in Majid Nawaz Sharif.
Now one day, he didn't turn off for two, three days. And I'm asked people, where is this boy? Basically Ursula is very ill he is critically ill and doesn't look like he will survive. So Mr. Sampson take between.
So he they took him to his house. He was lying on a bed, and his father was standing on one side of the bed. Now he says and I went and sat down on the other side of the bed. He took the hand of the wire in his hands. And he said to him, who La Ilaha illa Allah Who to flee hope.
He said, Say Lai, la Jai Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah and be successful.
He's saying this to a Jewish boy, who knew him who was dragging out with him
who loved him, and he sang it in front of his father in his house.
The boy looked up at his father.
The father said obey our castle. That was the Konya fossa center.
The Jewish father said obey Muhammad Sallallahu said, the boy said Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, masha Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah and he passed away with his hand in the hand of Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah
He held the hand of a source of Salah Believe me,
Allah subhanaw taala will cause that hand hold to be firm and remain that way until that boy enters generated for us.
Then he does not let go midway we let go.
Following the Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallam is the most important the most the most critical thing that one can do.
I wish that I sort of said this. He said a time will come when following my sunnah will be more difficult than holding a live coal burning coal piece of coal in your hand.
hamdulillah unless my dad has not put us in that situation.
We are living in very easy times. Yes, there are difficulties but there's nothing that is anywhere close to what the what nationalism described.
Let us be very clear let us we have an identity. We are Muslim Alhamdulillah we are Muslim. You're confident about that. You're proud of being Muslim.
You will not give up our being Muslim for anything in the world. No matter what.
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah we invite others to Islam not because of any monetary gain or
because they avoid getting some brownie points, we invite them to Islam because it is good for them
we invite them to something which we have chosen for ourselves
this is what's the work of the MBR this was the work of us all nice alright So
to reiterate, Allah subhanaw taala said My UT Rasulullah pocket Allah, Allah Tala. For my Ursa Naga, Allah He my Feasel law said he obeys the messenger SallAllahu Sallam has indeed obeyed Allah and he who turns away then we are not sent you Omaha Salem as a watcher over them.
And so as a result, I'm used to get very upset when people did not listen to him. And you can understand why he got so upset. Because this is not an ego issue. It is not a matter of you know, here is my argument and you for any follow me listen to me know, to understand this thing about is that if there is a house in which there is a gas leak,
and it is lethal, and there are people who are trying to rush into the house, because it is their house and they want to take things from the house and you've got a fireman or a fireman standing there trying to prevent them from going inside. But they refuse to listen to them. They're trying to find them they tried to go get around them and somehow get into the house and in some of them escape and go into the house. How bad would the fireman feed where the firemen know the reality of it? They know the danger of it
and they're standing there and preventing them from trying to get into the fire get into the house but these people don't understand the problem.
That's what I was gonna say die sometimes he said I feel like I'm a man righted a fire and there are now insects who are coming in attracted by the fire and falling to the fire and I'm standing there trying to prevent those insects from coming from entering the fire and dying. The fire looks attractive. It looks very shiny in the night. And insects are attracted toward towards the light and they don't realize and by the time they realize that this light is not just light it is fire it's heat it will burn it will kill it is too late for them.
They already singed the already but the leaves the wings are gone and they will they will just find the fight. This is the nature of the world
and that is why I lost my dad I said well I said in that in some electricals.
Illa livina Amaroo obviously had to Ottawa so we lucky what awesome so
Allah said Verily the whole way Allah took an oath by time.
And last matter I said that everybody in the Lisanna all verily all human beings,
in loss, they are destroyed they are destroying themselves. They are in loss, except those who have a man
who believe in Allah subhanho data and admission as a seller
who do good deeds
and we invite towards the truth
and invite towards and who have summer.
When they invite what is the truth, the difficulties that they face, because they invite towards the truth. They are patient about that they have some difficulties.
Allah subhanaw taala
Brahmas those who obey Allah Subhana Allah and His messenger Muhammad Sallallahu ala Samson Allah promised them success
unless around it that said rather love Lena and Minko for me to Sally Hattie. Layer stuck leave unknown fill out of the cover stoccata For Latina mean Cavalli him, where are you? Makina nella whom Dino malarial toda la home? Whether you were Dylan No member, the whole theme I wanna Yeah, we'll do any live if you wanna be a woman Guevara by the Gallic for Hola, eco Farsi Khun.
Allah has promised those among you who believe and do righteous deeds, that he will certainly grant them succession to the present rulers in the earth as he granted to those before them, and that he will grant them the authority to practice their religion, that which He has chosen for them which is Islam. And he will surely give them an exchange security after their fear provided they worship Me and do not associate anything in worship with me. But whoever it is believed after this, they are the farcical they
rebellious and disobedient to Allah subhanaw taala.
So obedience to the messenger SallAllahu sallam, and following his sunnah is not only to earn the akhira, but also to earn power, authority, wealth and influence in the dunya.
Allah's Raja short us this in the life of the Sahaba
were people who were nobody, but given victory over the superpowers of the time. And for more than 1000 years thereafter, the flag of Islam dominated the world.
It was only when Muslims forgot the reason for the victory, and allowed themselves to be corrupted, and gave in to the same greed, and chasing after the dunya that the that the rest of the world does. That the responsibility of Khilafah was taken away from them, and they became enslaved.
I remind myself that slavery is a state of the mind, not a state of physical confinement. A nation does not lose its glory and fall and fall until it destroys itself from within.
What do you say about people who had the formula for success, who have the formula not had who have the formula for success, but refused to use it, and go around searching for solutions in places where they don't exist?
We live in a world that has lost the art
world that is full of self created hardship, suffering oppression and inequity. A world that refuses to recognize that it is the creator of its own state, that it is the architect of its own disaster device. Yet we who have the solution, refused to use it, or to teach it to others.
Now because it's just CSD ask ask yourself this question I asked my ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us.
How on earth are we going to answer Allah subhanaw taala works
with Allah subhanaw taala sent us into this world with a job to do.
The column of Allah Jalla DeLallo did not just come to be read for Salah to be read and you know in a beautiful tone to have Quran recitation competitions and give prizes to the person who recites the Quran the best.
The Quran came as a
as something to follow as something to
to obey and follow to get some results.
Now, we lost this this plot a long time ago.
That's why sometimes you know, when people introduce me and they say international speaker, I hit this term speaker, I literally hit this I do not like to be introduced as a speaker. And if you if you reflect and if you go back in history,
nobody used this term about any one or any significance.
None of the Sahaba are referred to as speakers.
Khalid bin Wade avellana was a was a Mujahid ovoca Sidious where there was a great Khalifa has a number of the Satara there was a great Khalifa
but one of them was phenomenal administrators that the world has ever seen.
I live in a time of Elana was a great warrior and a man of enormous wisdom.
And one of the best and most significant judges, that the Islamic world or the world itself has ever seen. Osawatomie now fatherland who was a man with a heart, which was bigger than this world,
a man who said about trust, which exists still today in his name in Saudi Arabia
as Albacete Abdullah was a great Abbot of Allah subhanaw taala. He was known for his zoekt
for the for the citizen for his for the number of for how he worshipped Allah subhanaw taala.
All people of significance, were known for action.
No one was ever talked about as a great speaker meet them. Many of them were actually great speakers. They were great auditors but nobody talked to them. Nobody talked about and nobody mentioned
them as auditors.
This is a modern thing that we have taken.
Speaker, what is the speaker?
What's the good of speaking?
Is that going to get us anything in life or in the FM or is working going to get us something in the
In the ACA
let us focus on work.
The Quran Al Karim came for us as a
instruction manual. And Rasulullah Salah was life came as a demo for the instruction manual to do something, the Quran came for us to study it.
To practice it, as demonstrated by Russell relies on Salah to get some results
what happened to this sequence, read, practice and results, what what results, who is looking for the results? Who is either asking about the results
which which is also is a great half results or so and so is a great result aside from the Quran
kario the Quran
How can we do so and so is a great is a person who who implements the Quran in his life and see where it has got him, see the results that he is producing in his life, in his business, in his administration, in his home, in outside the home in his family outside the family.
That is what the Quran came for Imagine if something comes if it's if you are given a formula
to achieve something and you spend all your time reading the formula in reciting the formula in debating about this formula and having symposia about the the mystical nature of this formula, but you are you are not getting any results from this formula, what good is that formula for you?
That is what we have done with the kalam of religion
we are not using it for the purpose for which it was sent.
It was sent to make us winners in this world.
It was sent with instructions it has instructions of how to run our own lives and how to run this world in a way which is supremely and beautifully beneficial for all concerned
that is there in the Quran.
That is there in the
Sierra and Sunnah of Rasulullah Salam in his biography in his life in his teachings
which explain the Quran to us
to achieve something what is that something success in this world and inshallah India
but somewhere we seem to have lost that track
many people come and ask me questions you know they asked me questions about salah for example there has been questions about
which is a better better way of doing it and is this far there is not far than Mendoza says the SA who and what should I do and so on so on so on.
Should I raise my hand not raise my hands refer they notify them
but how many people item everything how many people ever asked me
how can I improve the quality of my salah
How can I get sure in my salah
because that's the only thing Allah smarter I mentioned in the Quran, the Salah is for Allah
wa salam Elazig realizan extemely Salah for my digger
and then about the movie known the believers Allah said ofis allowed him cartoon
in this era The Akasha
so if in the survive the Akasha Allah
we should ask do I have questions online myself
do have Khushboo masala
as soon as we will show and Hosea is with people over sugar that's what I'm saying. Allah so Allah subhanaw taala saying those who have Osho in their Salah
we should we should focus we will think about that. But we don't
I was just seriously I'm telling you.
We are fast reaching a point of no return. If you haven't already got there.
I lost my dad has is putting pressure on us.
Just look around yourself. See what is happening in the world.
You and I know that nothing happens without the will of Allah.
Everything happens with the will of Allah.
And what do you see happening? You see around the world you see the Muslims under pressure
in different ways in different places
there's some pressure of some kind. In some cases it is extremely severe,
literally a matter of life and death. In other places it is not that severe but still something which is uncomfortable which is interesting the schools ask us why is Allah subhanaw taala doing this? Why is Allah subhanaw taala putting this pressure Why is Allah allowing this to happen?
Now after we worship Allah subhanaw taala we don't join partners with him, we are not worshiping other things.
Then why is Allah subhanaw taala putting us under this pressure
in my understanding of Allah, Allah, I am not claiming to have some direct connection to Allah's mantra, but my understanding is because we are not fulfilling the purpose of our creation, the purpose of our creation, was to present Islam to the rest of the world, as it was about creation was to show the beauty of Islam to the whole world, the purpose of our creation was to lead the whole world into Jannah
we are not doing that
we are not doing that.
We were we were supposed to be eagles, Golden Eagles
sent in order to teach others to fly
instead of that we became chickens scratching in the dirt for worms
along with alongside other chickens.
Now, what's the point of that?
What is the point of that
if we are also going to get involved in the same rat race
and do the same old dumb things that his world is doing
chasing money and chasing this and just that
ostentation lifestyles showing off to the world
then what good is it?
How are we different for anybody else?
Differentiation I mean I always you know I try to
to combine different branches of learning.
And so, I take my business degree and I try to understand Islam through the business degree.
So, I tell myself that in business we say that differentiation, the my quote as differentiation creates brand,
brand creates loyalty and loyalty enables influence.
Brands are critical because if you go for example, the simplest example I can give you if you go to a store to buy toothpaste, you will not go and say give me toothpaste
you will name the brand new us give me Colgate give me we have Pepsodent
Give me was doesn t
give me isn't that Elizabeth whatever right?
Whichever Farahi tooth one John is the black powder charcoal thick
you will ask for the brand that is that you use
if you were to buy a car, you don't want you won't say give me a car there are cars and cars and cars
each has a name you will ask for that particular car.
So, what is our brand?
Why is Brandon born with brand differentiates differentiation is what the brand without differentiation you are a grain of rice in a sec.
You are nobody but when you differentiate you start out on the basis of your qualities. And when you start out then you people will notice you and if you if you now add value to people, those people will start following you. They become your
your your base.
They become loyal to you.
And when they are loyal to you now you will influence them.
But all of that will have only if you first differentiate.
You have to stand out on the basis of something good.
Ask yourself what are we doing and Muslims ask yourself yourself what are you doing as an individual? How do you stand out?
See this limiter if we are not starting out. Then we are like any other mammal any other animal will eat drink, make a few babies and die
shot the grass.
What good is a life like that?
It is for me it has no meaning that kind of a life has.
Whether you live or you didn't live makes no difference.
Allah sent us
to do something to show something to him.
I want to end this series of reflect on the Quran with this, reflect on the Quran. Ask yourself what is this guitar of Allah? Why did it come? What is my duty towards the Kitab of Allah?
Am I fulfilling their duty?
When I stand before Allah subhanaw taala if Allah subhanaw taala asked me this question that I sent to my book, did you fulfill your duty towards that book?
What am I going to say?
Let us be in a position where we can at least say alight, right?
I don't say we can say Yes, completely I have fulfilled you know, I am good. No.
But at least we tried
in our way, whatever that ways, smaller it may have been.
But if he didn't try it all
if he got sidetracked somewhere
and we use this book now as our root cause some kind of Baraka keeping the house somewhere on top or just decided minimum required
you know, how many times we be somebody we tell people to encourage them.
Read at least three eyes of the Quran, raise at least half a page. Read read at least one page. Just ask yourself a simple question. Will you say that about anything else or any other book?
If you're if you're if your children are studying in school or you are studying somewhere whatever Will you say that about any other book just read half a page read three lines.
What kind of a joke is this? But we say this without any shame whatsoever about the
morons is B seriously seriously need to wake up.
Let us wake up before we are woken up.
Ask us to open our hearts to the knower of his deen and the nature of his diet. And to the hotbin Mahabharata Allah subhanho wa Taala and it's gonna be Ali salaam, sobre, la Alison
as well as raw data to enable us to live according to His Kitab in the way of Muhammad Rasul Allah He said Allah highly values over sin
so that our lives become beacons of guidance for whoever comes in contact with us.
And that when we stand with Allah subhanaw taala we will have some excuse to beg Him for His mercy and for His forgiveness.
Allah my nigga phone Kareem do him a favor for me. Allah when I got for one to him without Farfan Allah you are the one who forgives you love to forgive so forgive us.
Robin is Ramadan for Santa Willem de filling out our hunger. Cassidy. Robin of Finland has ruined our coffee. I don't know yet you know to open Amala proper attina. Dunia has an atomic Villa that he has another one that was Allah Allah, Karim Allah Allah He was named after.
