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

salat wa salam ala schizophyllum via while Ali was having a bad

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

day inshallah The topic is protecting our eyes, ears and hearts.

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

The dog gets to today about protecting our armor. Today's topic is predicting the ages and heart

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

disease. The issue of this is to Rosado in one Hadith he said the eyes are the arrows,

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

what you see enters your hearts

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

and therefore it is very, very important for us to guard our eyes.

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

There is a famous story about Thomas shaffir, Andre

00:00:54--> 00:01:01

Chava. Today he had he was one of those people in in among among the salaf who had a phenomenal memory.

00:01:03--> 00:01:09

He used to say that when I read a book, I cover one side of one page because if I see it I it impedes my

00:01:11--> 00:01:16

development. If I just look at it, it imprints in my mind I interface Mairead

00:01:17--> 00:01:21

Jaffe, when he first came to mmamoloko hospital, he was the student of family.

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

So when he first came, he was a young boy.

00:01:26--> 00:01:33

And Malik had a routine where he would give that se from asset to Maverick,

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

sitting

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

outside in the sand of the mud,

00:01:40--> 00:01:46

and then it messes in our way. And then after every we would, they would sit inside.

00:01:48--> 00:01:54

So when Mr. Malik was, when he started that he saw this young boy, he came in, he sat right in front of him.

00:01:55--> 00:02:00

And all through the years, and as a drummer, in that part of the world is a long time.

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

All through the years, this boy was doodling in the sand with a finger.

00:02:07--> 00:02:10

I remember Mary got very irritated, but he didn't say anything.

00:02:11--> 00:02:22

These people were our, if you look at the way people taught, and so on, people expected seriousness from the students coming to study, you study, you don't don't fiddle around and so on.

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

So anyhow,

00:02:25--> 00:02:37

after mareeba, Malik was getting ready for the second session of this. This boy came up to him and he introduced himself. And he said, I have come to be a student.

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

So Malik said, I'm sorry, I'm not interested in having you as a student, you can go away.

00:02:44--> 00:03:00

So the boy started crying. He said, Why are you Why are you rejecting me like this? I have no I just came. And what did I do? He said, I noticed that you were sitting and you were playing while my that was going on. And you were fiddling with the you know, doodling in the sand.

00:03:02--> 00:03:08

So this young boy, he said to him, he said, Yeah, Ma'am, I was not playing. He said I was memorizing orders.

00:03:11--> 00:03:33

Out Mr. Malik's thought to himself was this kid Not only is he playing games, but he now wants to give me you know, some excuse, memorizing my letters. He's learned so what did I say? And this boy, who was later to become a mama Shafi. He started with 100. I mean, and he completely narrated the entirety of Amharic from beginning to end.

00:03:37--> 00:03:53

So Malik hugged him, and he accepted him as his student. And Eva Malik Imam Shafi was one of the very few people a lot of how many there were, but very, very few. Who Eva Molly gave the ijazah to make fatwa in his own lifetime.

00:03:55--> 00:04:00

This Shafi had to lie, I was he was I was put on already when he came

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

one day came to America and he said I have forgotten the

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

Quran has left me

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

now Malik said what do you mean forgotten? How can you forget the Koran? He said, I forgot. I cannot remember now.

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

Symbolic said you have seen something which you should not have seen.

00:04:20--> 00:04:25

I didn't see the standards of people. He said you have seen something that you should not have seen.

00:04:27--> 00:04:32

So go and think about that. And he said make Toba inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will give you back his column.

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

I don't know Well, it's a great mercy of Allah that He does not apply the same standard to us.

00:04:41--> 00:04:48

I don't know whether we would even remember the column of wherever the Quran if I let him read that star across the hall or whatever.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

So Obama Shafi went back home and he reflected and he realized and he recalled that he was walking there was our Medina and there was a lady who was getting down from a vehicle

00:05:01--> 00:05:13

And as she was getting down, she extended her leg and Mr. Chavez saw the ankle a little bit. You know, maybe the ankle, maybe the calf or something was extending the radio wasn't fully time and so on but

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

and for that,

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

Allah subhanaw taala removed the column column from that.

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

He made doba.

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

And Elizabeth did a good vector.

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

The eyes are the arrows of the heart.

00:05:32--> 00:05:32

It was one of those.

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

There was

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

even Abdurahman Delano. He was about maybe 15 years old.

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

This young boy used to run errands for me Salim used to, you know,

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

very fond of him used to do some work whatever he was told to do.

00:05:55--> 00:05:59

One day, he was passing by a house

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

and

00:06:04--> 00:06:14

there was a breeze and the door of the house was open. And because of the breeze, the curtain which was there, the curtain shifted.

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

And sarabah or the lotto, he saw a woman who was bidding

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

it's a glimpse, you know, he didn't stand there on steroids.

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

But he saw this.

00:06:29--> 00:06:37

Now that affected him to such an extent that he said to himself that I have been destroyed i said i How can I How could I have seen this?

00:06:38--> 00:06:47

How could I have seen this? So he started weeping and so on and then he left Medina and he disappeared.

00:06:49--> 00:06:54

Didn't see him for two three days. He asked people Where is his boy, they said we don't know where he is.

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

So then sent people to search for him.

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

And Abubakar Romano Delano, and by now three, four days had passed maybe five days of Allah Allah.

00:07:06--> 00:07:16

Allah Casa de la delana Romano satara no one's searching for him. And they went outside of Medina and they went for a distance and this awesome Shepherd grazing some sheep

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

on a hillside.

00:07:19--> 00:07:34

So they went to him and they were asking people do you see this boy? So that is about his houses, but he said, the shepherd said, you know, there is some kid who's living in the cave on top there. And once a day, he comes down, I give some milk from my sheep, he drinks the milk and he goes back.

00:07:36--> 00:07:40

And something is wrong with him because he's crying the whole time. He's weeping the whole time.

00:07:41--> 00:07:44

Salva Ravana went there and they found the lawn

00:07:46--> 00:07:51

and he was weeping. Is that what happened to you? Where are you which are no no, I have committed a great sin I'm

00:07:52--> 00:08:00

Have you has sent you to to bring me and arrest me and bring me because maybe Allah subhanaw taala revealed and I have to say

00:08:02--> 00:08:18

so they said he has not sent to arrest you or anything like this, he is worried about you is calling you please come. And they took him he refused to come they took him they took him and they brought in was by now he was like reduced to a like a like a skeleton he was completely wasting away.

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

Now he says as soon as he came to me,

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

he said to me as well as Allah revealed that I have to say

00:08:28--> 00:08:37

nothing of the sort Who told you nothing. And but by then he couldn't even stand so sort of he laid out and put his head in his in his own lap.

00:08:39--> 00:08:46

He said jasola removed my head from your lap. I'm not fit for this. He said I'm not fit for this. Do my body on the ground.

00:08:48--> 00:08:55

Do that. Then he said to me also live it as if there are ants crawling all over my body. Now that I've said this is that

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

he said this is this

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

and then

00:09:02--> 00:09:04

reminded him about the color

00:09:07--> 00:09:13

notes and then reminded about the color and salovaara Delano recited the color and he died

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

in that grief.

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

I do.

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

Sometimes I read his stories and

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

I

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

don't know.

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

The reason I

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

then

00:09:39--> 00:09:46

took him after is he breeds a lot of jealousy for him. And he's taking him to the forester

00:09:48--> 00:09:52

and the observers are sort of walking on tiptoes on his toes.

00:09:54--> 00:09:58

They said to me as to why you're walking like this. He said there are so many Malacca the crowding me

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

is no place for me to put my foot properly

00:10:03--> 00:10:08

there are so many angels Allah has sent to take part in the jars of despair

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

all around me the crowd me

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

sometimes that do

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

we are we talking about fairy tales are

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

these real people?

00:10:33--> 00:10:38

Today there is an entire industry, one of the most

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

wealthy and one of the worst

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

flourishing industries is the porn industry.

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

Follow me.

00:10:48--> 00:10:59

And I was reading some statistics. So they say that in America, and American schoolboy sees at least five new porn movies every week.

00:11:04--> 00:11:18

And that does not feel very safe. Because the only reason we don't know how many porn movies our children are seeing here is because we have no clue. We don't keep tabs. They keep tabs because they want to know how many they're selling.

00:11:21--> 00:11:29

Our kids have access to all the same resources, the same internet. They all have iPads and iPods, right this and that.

00:11:31--> 00:11:35

And we have no clue I can tell you seriously you will be surprised

00:11:36--> 00:11:45

if you actually find out what kinds of things that your children are seeing or what they are hearing what they're listening to. will be very surprised.

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

The world is a change place

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

and then we wonder why the hell Allah does not come and make dua

00:11:55--> 00:11:59

because our eyes see haram and our ears listen to haram

00:12:01--> 00:12:11

how many of our children I'm not even saying you know, you know music is haram forget about all these people who make all kinds of statements. One of them said is right, there's no doubt about this.

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

But I'm just saying that even children who are listening to music, how many of them are listening also to the forum?

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

I'm not saying one should mix the two but I'm just saying are they listening to the Quran

00:12:28--> 00:12:36

so it is very, very important to see halaal to listen to her because both of these things affect the heart

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

one wrong thing you see and it destroys your Salah

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

with the strigosa yourself

00:12:45--> 00:12:56

one wrong tune you hear it destroys your Salah when you are trying to pray trying to concentrate some tune is going on in your mind you're trying to concentrate some pictures are coming into your mind.

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

I tell you why some mercy and mercy and mercy does not hold us accountable for our thoughts and it does not hold us accountable for our desires and he does not hold us accountable inshallah for all these pictures in our head if that happened, what would we do a lot?

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

Can you seriously forget about remembering the Koran. We will not even remember the caliber of Allah will protect us. I don't know how we will reset the culture when we are dying. Because our mind is completely Our hearts are filled with filth.

00:13:29--> 00:13:39

Some we see deliberately some weezy accidentally it is there everywhere. You will open the newspaper it is full of porn. You look you want to watch sports, it is full of porn.

00:13:41--> 00:13:49

I mean cricket and football used to be you know, reasonably safe. Now they've got the monkey dancing, they're cheerleaders.

00:13:50--> 00:14:05

And that also is gone down the drain. Tennis is women's tennis is quantum is straightforward. No, no two ways about it. The way the cameras are positioned and so on and so on. They are interested in the match or the ball or the anything of the interest other things.

00:14:07--> 00:14:34

You look at the billboards, you're seeing porn, somebody's advertising for biscuits is doing it on the basis of half a half naked woman. Somebody I realize for ice cream is doing it on the basis of half naked women, somebody has put it put it into the minds of our sisters, may Allah protect them. So are these women there with their ancestors, whoever they are, you know, not only Muslims, but somebody has convinced them that freedom means to display your body.

00:14:35--> 00:14:50

Somebody has convinced them that being free from the operation of men is to is to is to expose their bodies. I mean, whenever I speak, as they would say, Tell me if you expose your body who gets pleasure out of it, a man or a woman?

00:14:52--> 00:14:55

today even that is difficult to say but I'm just saying that it is the majority.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

So have you freed yourself from the oppression of men or

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

Is this a cron job that you have been convinced by men to give them even more pleasure?

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

by exposing yourself

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

How is it freedom for if you really want to be free from the oppression of men as you'd like to call it,

00:15:18--> 00:15:21

then cover yourself from head to toe let the man you know.

00:15:22--> 00:15:30

Let him suffer. We let him Look at you looking like a 10th or whatever we they may they may call these coverages. A woman wears hijab and so on this is your she looked like a ninja.

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

You need a kick in your teeth. Like

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

so let's look like a ninja. Let's look like a trend.

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

At least that is not giving any pleasure to the man so if you really want to free yourself from the operation of men, use your brains think

00:15:49--> 00:15:54

there's a huge, huge, huge interest and they and they they catch them young. They catch them young.

00:15:55--> 00:16:10

There are teen magazines the magazine the minute the girl opens our eyes There are magazines which tell her what she should wear, how she should wear what should look like in summer what should what she should do in winter what she should do, how can you get a boyfriend How can you keep a boyfriend

00:16:11--> 00:16:22

you got prom nights you got this you got that. And again as I said let's not feel comfortable and safe that we don't live in the in Europe or we don't live in America. This culture today is universal.

00:16:23--> 00:16:29

You don't have to live in America you don't have to live in Europe. No matter where you are living that culture find you that culture is universal.

00:16:32--> 00:16:39

It's universal. Maybe your daughter is not going to prom dance that's only temporary Believe me. Time will come for that also.

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

But she's seeing that she has the same desires in her heart she's dating the same magazines she's going to same websites

00:16:50--> 00:17:01

and track if you want to track and see I'm not exaggerating. I this is what we have seen. That's why I tell is while I make I am I make sure that I don't have children of my own.

00:17:02--> 00:17:14

The great mercy of Allah is Allah has freed me from personal anxiety about this but of course Angela also very children have so many friends and so on. So that anxiety is still there. on you know, with regard to others,

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

but I'd be I don't have my own personal anxiety to worry about

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

it in years.

00:17:24--> 00:17:37

The songs just listen to the lyrics you will be a member you really see this DVD where it was seriously stop running and you know trying to earn money all day. sit and listen to what your children are listening to.

00:17:39--> 00:17:47

Because what they do will either bring you benefit in your grave or it will bring you harm in your grave. When they are your responsibility you are supposed to bring them up

00:17:50--> 00:17:56

listen to what they are listening to you will be amazed the kind of lyrics rap what is rap?

00:17:58--> 00:18:11

What is that? Have you ever listened to a rap song have you ever thought heard the lyrics? The howl of whatever little serious disease is yesterday. Go listen to that. It'll make a little you won't sleep for a week.

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

That is what the kids are listening to. That is what they are listening to. They are the target audience.

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

They are the target audience.

00:18:24--> 00:18:32

Biggest best selling absolute blockbuster gadget of Apple is the iPod.

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

Not the iPad, the iPod.

00:18:36--> 00:18:44

What is the iPod, the iPod enables you to download and listen to any kind of music you want anytime, anyplace

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

24 seven, you got the music with you.

00:18:50--> 00:18:59

They have made it so easy. They have made it so easy shaitan has made it so easy to access right and you can access right on 24 seven absolutely no problem.

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

And Allah subhanaw taala sends Navy after Navy after Navy

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

but you're not interested in accessing Allah.

00:19:12--> 00:19:36

Seriously Seriously, let us make the effort to protect our eyes to protect our ears. We spoke about protecting our tongue earlier so I won't repeat that but to protect these things, because these are the things then Allah subhanaw taala said, alumina demo Allah for you fyp what to call the Mona ad water shadow mechanics

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

and that's why does it the tongue would be sealed.

00:19:41--> 00:19:52

And these jar, these faculties and these limbs of ours these eyes and years, they will speak

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

and they will say what you what we made them do.

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

These are from Allah subhanaw taala

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

They have been given into our control for a short period of time.

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

Today the AI does what you tell it to do, because the AI does even what the AI does not want to do. But it does it because Allah has given that into our power. But on the Day of Judgment, the AI will complain, they will say Allah He made me look at her

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

a llama, llama? llama.

00:20:27--> 00:20:33

Seriously, let us reflect. I don't know how much time we have left.

00:20:34--> 00:20:42

Yesterday, we went to see some land, or the SBA used to be owned by a man who died in his 50s Well, less than 50 maybe

00:20:45--> 00:20:47

you've got too small, he's got two small daughters.

00:20:49--> 00:20:56

Two or three days before that we heard about the death of another brother. galloping cancer, again, is what

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

somebody was telling me there's a random mine runs a

00:21:06--> 00:21:30

charity called Helping Hand Foundation, they're doing some wonderful work Alhamdulillah. And they give, they give money to people who are sick. And they keep they maintain statistics of you know, what kind of illnesses outcome and demographics of the of the patients and so on. And he was telling me, the largest demographic group of people who are getting cancer today is a group between the age of 15 and 30.

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

Anybody

00:21:34--> 00:21:41

15 and 30 is the largest demographic group of cancer patients here in Hyderabad.

00:21:43--> 00:21:46

What are we the reasons but I'm just saying that life is short.

00:21:47--> 00:21:49

And we don't know when hours will end.

00:21:51--> 00:21:56

And that is why let us wake up before we are woken up.

00:21:57--> 00:22:11

And let us correct ourselves, let us change ourselves. Let us look at the Mahal that at the environment in the home. Let us monitor what we see what our children see what we listen to what they listen to.

00:22:13--> 00:22:27

And this is not a question of being hard or harsh on them or beating them or throwing away all their iPads and iPod No. Because even if you throw it away today, they have access to it somewhere somehow. So this is the bite you're throwing it doesn't serve any purpose. You have to put that

00:22:29--> 00:22:38

desire to please Allah, you have to put that fear of offending Allah subhanaw taala, that fear of doing the wrong thing into their heart.

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

That is that that is the key. And that is the challenge.

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

It's not a question of gadgets.

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

That is a challenge.

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

And as I said, You and I have a personal stake in this because if we don't make that effort, then the armor of that child are part of your record, please understand this very clearly.

00:23:01--> 00:23:13

That child does good it will come into you it will come to you in your grave is a child does evil and you didn't make the effort to correct the child then that evil will be the fire in your cover. May Allah protect us from this.

00:23:14--> 00:23:20

If you made the effort and after that the child goes astray, that's not your responsibility that sort of imagine you did your best 100

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

but if you were too busy doing whatever you were doing,

And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from ourselves and to save us from these false desires that we have become part of and to enable us to learn lessons from the history of our self and to enable us to live lives which are pleasing to Him so that when the time comes for us to go to him we have at least some exclusive standard wireless router that was Allah Allah will get him while he was happy as well and without
