Al Hamdulillah aerobill alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Colombia Eva mousseline, Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah He while he was serving Silla de Leon Garcia and cathedra formado my brothers and sisters, we are
in our class of tasket enough, so there were two o'clock. And as I keep saying every class practically that please do not think that if you attend this class that you have achieved a skier, they are only talking about the skier
to get to have the scale to knifes to purify our
hearts and our souls, we have to work on that.
In any class, I can only i or whoever any teacher can only tell you about it can tell you the benefits of it, he can tell you the
the harm of not doing it, and
he can explain it and say well, this is what it means. But beyond this, nobody can do anything that has to come from ourselves, we have to decide to change our lives and then we have to do something to actually create that change. And that's why I recommend that and very strongly I suggest this to you, which Allah may Allah make it easy for us. Now,
in any transformation process, what is critical is to have a benchmark is to have a standard against which we compare ourselves and say, because at any point in time, if we want to see how we are doing, we have to measure ourselves and we measure ourselves against a an ideal standard I criteria. So that we know where how we are doing visa we that criteria. Michael Harvey the guy who
who originated the Six Sigma quality control concept, he said if you want to see what somebody if you want to see what people value, see what they measure.
He said if you want to see what people value, see what they measure and therefore as far as the sky is concerned, the standard Now, question is what is the standard
and the standard is the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam this is this is a very beautiful standard of people who had achieved thus get enough's because their teacher was the best
ever and that was Rasul Allah is Allah listen. So let's see let's try to benchmark ourselves. Now the message of Mohammed Salah Salem, Allah subhanaw taala sent Muhammad Rasul Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam as his last and final messenger and therefore, he did something that he had not done with any of the previous VLE Muslim he created a generation of people to continue the work of doubtless lab after the passing away of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, no more than the Salat stopped. With Rasul Allah is Allah Selim, the work of no more than Risala did not stop and cannot stop. Because the need for he dire need for guidance is like our need for food for water,
for air to breathe, and far more important than all of them put together.
Because food, water, shelter, air breathing and so on so forth are restricted to this life. Once we die, we don't need any of that. But what we continue to need is the fruits of guidance which will go with us in our graves are in Dwaraka.
So that is why we deny and refute anyone who claims to be a NaVi after Muhammad Rasul Allah, so the Sunnah, because there is no need for any Nabee after him.
Allah is not going to change anything. So therefore Allah stopped the sincera and the continuum of an award. Allah is right that on the other hand, created an entire group of people
to be the
gold standard for the world to benchmark itself against to see if it's on the right path or not.
Allah's America gave the gave
this Obama gave us, the Muslims a very sacred and a very important task. Where does that come from Cairo mattina Frigidly in us that we will reveal more or fewer than how Nariman curry were to Winona villa. Allah is right that I said you Muslims are the best of people ever raised up for mankind. You enjoy Almara of all that is good and permitted in Islam and forbidden mancha or polytheism and all that, in fact, Islam as forbidden and privated and you believe in Allah subhanaw taala and that Allah is right that is ethical
laddies abidi Other Illa Allah Allah wa seriatim and now Mediterranee also had Allah He Rama and Amina mushy kid, and let's say Oh mama So Sarah, this is my way, I invite you to I invite towards Allah subhanaw taala with sure knowledge and evidence, and whosoever follows me must also invite towards Allah subhanaw taala without your knowledge, and glorified and exalted be Allah subhanho wa Taala above all that they associate as partners with him, and I am not of the mushy record, in spite of the fact they have.
Allah Subhana Allah

Guide us to the way of steadfastness, the way of those on whom you were stored your grace and Your reward, not the way of those who earned Your Anger nor of those who went astray.
Who didn't reward unless Zenvo may use the lever Azula who monitors Ursula may use the lava Rasulullah but we like Isla de Rama La Mina Mina, Allah Allah him in Urbina was it the Akina?

We're hazard that relay got a few Carla said. And whosoever obeys Allah Subhana Allah and His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, then they will be
in the company of those on whom Allah Subhana Allah Tala bestowed His grace from among the prophets and the City Hall and the martyrs and the righteous and how excellent are these companions.
So we have textual evidence of the fact that thou there is love, to present Islam to the world is our job. This is the responsibility that has been given to us. In the freezer is a cell number solar cell cinema standing on the mountain org, and with him where our worker and Omar mo throttle the Allahu Anhu. Again, when he fell the tremor of an earthquake, no solos, or a set of stamped his foot on the mountain and said, Why do you tremble when there is an A B, a C, D, and two shahada standing on you. And this was the Mushara off
shahada to say that Anwar and say the northmen are the Allahumma and Norwegian Salah honored Pharisee de by calling him a city.
My brother's sister, the Sahaba are the standard. And Allah subhana Medina created the generation to be an example for the rest of the world, until the end of time. This is the generation whose actions will be the standard against which the actions of all those who come after them will be measured to ascertain if they are up to the mark or not. Right
that is the reason why it is so important for us to
remember these things and
and to bring them into our lives to follow these things in all and complete sincerity.
guardian to me one of the most important textual evidences with regard to the Sahaba being the standard
for the judging of all the rest of the OMA and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to exempt us from being judged against this standard even though it's a bit of a standard because at least I know for my part, that I will fail miserably if I'm measured against any of the sob but Allah subhanaw taala created the standard and
that generation of the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
to be an example for the world until the end of time.
And this is the generation
against whose actions will
we measured the actions of all those who come after them?
And those route that is it and see the runoff ALLAH SubhanA data in through the wireless router I said was because Allah Varuna muhajir in our Ansari one levena thorough bear Stanley Rhodiola on one of the one
well, I don't Jana the integrity that Allah and Haru phylidia Rafi about the Likkle fossa Rasim Allah Jalla
The woods said, which means
the first savvy hula balloon. The first and savvy phone is, in the sense of a race, people who came first who made the effort who came first. It's not first as in counting 1234 It's a question of who made the effort to come first. So, rather than saying here are sabula balloon, the first of the first
to embrace Islam of the MaHA Joon and the answer, unless giving them these are the highest level
like the body and with the highest level and also those who followed them exactly in faith. Now, this is where Allah subhanaw taala geladeira shows his infinite mercy, where Allah subhanaw taala could have said in this ayah for example, was una Lama Luna Mina Mahajan, our Ansari, Radi Allahu wa one Allah would have said that Allahu what are the one? Allah Buddha said that the first embrace Islam among the MaHA Gerona and DeAnza Allah is well pleased with them and they are pleased with Allah. So the giver disclosed, it is something being said concerning these people and it relates to them and nobody else but Allah Subhana Allah and his infinite mercy kept that door open. He kept the
door open for anybody who is interested in joining the Sahaba Rizwan Halliwell remain among those who Allah is pleased with.
So here Allah said, Well Larina taba home Mirsad those who follow them but then there is a standard follow them in excellence, not just follow them any any way you like.
In excellence village
or the Allahu home, what are the one who
Allah is well pleased with them and they were pleased with him.
But our de la home Jana integrity Tata Allah and higher quality raffia Abba, DECA vertical mozillazine And Allah said that He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow that is Janna to dwell there into live there in forever and that is supreme success. This is what Allah subhanaw taala is telling us with regard to the beautiful standard of the Sahaba and one layer image. Now, what are these qualities
which we need to imbibe in ourselves and emulate? I have identified eight qualities of the sahaba. And of course, it doesn't mean that they are restricted to the qualities the Sahaba people have,
have a completely unique nature. And Allah Allah, there are probably hundreds of things in their in their lives that we need to study and to emulate, but we start with what we can start with. So these eight let me quickly enumerate them, one is
complete and total certainty in Allah subhanaw taala in the Surah Salah in Islam in the message,
every at every level, complete and total certainty. Number two is Taka, Taka is to be aware of the presence of Allah subhanaw taala in our lives. Number three is that is to obey
Allah and in the visual lesson number four is other which is respect, and a sense of reverence when approaching Allah subhanaw taala and Rosa salah and the
matters of the number five is in *, which is generosity spending the path of Allah number 62 Jad which is courage and bravery. Number seven is luck, which is our manners and how we deal with people. And number eight is Bopha, which is faithfulness in
the fullness and what's a good word for five faithfulness?
Now, let's see
each of these we'll try to see how many we can do it up. One is Kenya teen is complete and certain belief in Allah subhanaw taala in the Surah Salam
and all the promises of Allah Subhana
Allah around that I mentioned the Sahaba even by Allah said Rama Rasool will be Moundsville ala Hema Robbie Mirabai Well, meno coloane Armineh Villa he was also the avoidable Malayaka Taheebo Kuta. We were also the learner for a Kobe nahi Maroussi Bakasana Altana or Ferrara Cabrera, we look at
the messenger Muhammad wa salam believes in what has been sent down to him from Israel, and so do the believers. Each one believes in Allah, His angels, his books and his messengers and they say we make no distinct
between one or another often messengers and they say we hear and we obey, and we seek your forgiveness our love, and to you is the return of all.
The way as Baba Newzoo the very circumstances of revelation of this beautiful Isaiah Karima of sort of the Bacala which is one of the last two ayat of surah baqarah. These two I have got in our was,
for thy enormous benefits and enormous
praise for these is the importance and the
as Baba Masood is very, very interesting and very
salutary for us to learn from. It begins with the revelation of the species before this, where Allah subhanaw taala said, Leela he Matthew savato My fellow we're into blue mafia and fusi como fo you Hasib, Camila, fire V Ray, my fail video, liver, yesha over you all the way yesha Walla Walla coalition, Cody, ALLAH SubhanA wa sentries means, Allah said that whatever is in the heavens, and the earth belongs to Allah.
Allah subhanaw, Taala is aware of whatever is in your hearts, and whatever is outside meaning what you say and do and you do.
And if he wants, he will punish and if he wants, he will forgive.
reverting to whatever is in the hearts and whatever is outside, well acquisition there and he's capable of doing whatever he likes.
When this ad was revealed,
or whatever we allow 100 relates to the Sahaba went to social salah. And they literally went down on their knees before Him, they didn't make salute to him, but they went down on their knees in a in a gesture of other banners gesture of supplication, the gesture of begging him to intercede
and they said yes, videos were a lot. So like I said, if Allah subhana, they said, yours Allah, so as we have control over our speech and over our actions,
but Allah subhanaw taala is saying in this ayah, that he will hold us accountable also for our thoughts and our desires and what is inside our hearts.
They said, We have no control over these
thoughts will come desires will come and go, we have no control over them. And if Allah subhana, Allah is going to
hold us accountable for them. And Allah subhanaw taala says that the futures he can punish, then we will be destroyed.
Now resourcer salaams reaction to this was not what you might have expected, because if you see this, this excuse or or this,
I don't want to use the word objection, this
feeling of the Sahaba have
a huge burden that this huge, you know,
the fear that Allah's data might might punish them.
What they are saying seems may seem reasonable to us, right? I mean, we are saying that if Allah is holding us accountable for things which are not in our control, then we will be destroyed. I think this I mean, I would say it sounds reasonable, I'm sure you would agree. But also as a result of didn't think so as soon as I was around, turn to them and he literally they say that, the narrator says that his face his blessed face became red with anger. And he said, Are you going to be like those who said somewhere outside? We hear but we will not obey? This is one of the bunnies I said to Musa Lisa.
He said listen, we have we heard what you're saying but sorry, we're not gonna do it.
There is no sir. I'm said will you be like them?
He said, Say Sarah autonomy over on a crock burner with a currency called Serrano Altana or Veronica Obara Wally conversation.
He said, say, oh, Yara.
We hear and we obey. We don't argue here and
please forgive us and to use our terms and the Sahaba the repeated after resources.
Now the interesting thing is, you might say well, then what happened?
And nothing happened for 12 months.
After 12 months, Allah subhanaw taala revealed this i
where Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Azza Lamarque as well.
I want also an afro
The customer. So our also I have came after 12 months. And then the other ayat, which were Allah subhanaw taala, taught the Sahaba, how to make dua. So this is after 12 months Allah Subhana Allah revealed this is the Navi and His messenger and his companions, they believe in Allah subhanaw taala them and like I think the books and the and the messengers and so on. And then our last Valterra said that a person will not be given a heavier burden than what he can bear liability for Lovenox and he loves Lamarca hammock,
a person will not be given more thought leave than he can bear of a person will not be given a heavier burden than he can carry. And you will be responsible and you will be held accountable only for your deeds meaning what you say and what you do. So Allah has raw data basically,
what he said in the earlier I was Matera
that evoked that and give them relief. And then Allah subhanaw taala taught them to make dua from Allah to happiness he now after novena Tamil Elena Ceramica, Muhammad
Kadena number, I will have to have minimal of autonomy, bye for now failed on our
Allah subhanaw taala taught them to make dua. Now, think about this sisters, for 12 months,
the Sahaba were living under the
under the strict and stringent conditions
that Allah subhanaw taala was going to hold them accountable for even their thoughts and even their desires.
I don't even know how many Sahaba in this period passed away,
which means till the last moment, this is what they believed in they they went with that
thought in their minds.
last quarter revealed desired after 12 months he would have done in the same day.
Right would look very dramatic. I mean the sidebar asking something, the moment which also absurd they repeat it and then the various alarm comes and says this is what Allah is saying But see, see the honor of it because in the eye of Allah subhanaw taala used the words of his NaVi le salah.
And he returned those words of Brussels and Salah as his color
to be recited in Zara to the Day of Judgment.
Right? So this is the honor of obedience, the wages obedience is this honor. But this came after 12 months.
Now why Allah Allah, Allah Allah knows so I'm not interpreting on I'm not speaking on behalf of Allah. But my guess is that this was part of the very very tough dusky our therapy tarbiyah that Allah subhanaw taala did for that generation.
And this is another reason why the scherzo important,
very tough task you're not interested I will hold you responsible for your thoughts and actually meaning thoughts and thoughts and desire meaning what meaning train yourself in such a way that not only will you not do wrong, you will not even think about route you will not even wish for.
So, then when the when when this
tough condition was removed, there was no danger of this however falling into any kind of
any kind of wrong this is the this is the beauty of the of the service. Now who are these people who are
who had this level of Yaqeen somewhere and a complete and total yucky and complete and total obedience to Allah so
the first of them was of course our grace is different.
Right totally okay.
do to her
volcat to Goodwill stories from the Sierra of Olga Cydia for the LA Zoo and his and his complete Jackie. The first is were in Israel, our Mirage after Solzhenitsyn returned from his home and I am not
making the story brief.
There was much division and much, you know, people laughing and joking and whatnot about the service center. And it's claimed that he had gone from Makara to Jerusalem and and they haven't been back. So somebody came to over Garcinia Delano, because he was not there at the time he was aware of so they came to him and they said, Do you know what your friend is saying?
No, ask them say what is he saying?
They said all this is that this is what he claimed, and how can it be possible? Right? So he's, he's made it up, did something that he
he seems to have made up. And they asked him, What do you think
are the last words are so beautiful and so remarkable? He said, If he said that, I believe if he said that I believe this principle is used to this day in the authentication of this.
If he said that, we believe we don't say if he said that if it sounds reasonable, if it sounds logical, if it sounds scientifically possible, we don't say all this we say if suasana said this, we believe so the Mojave thean when they research about in the in the in the Hadith, they are not looking to see whether the Hadees makes logical sense scientific sense what not one
that is make all those bullet point is they're not looking for that they're just looking to see did Rasul Allah is actually say, whatever is reported
And our guess is the Motherland was totally a cane is seen in this way. He said, If he said it, I believe so the estimator How can you believe this look at this thing, this whole thing is so seems to be so completely, you know?
Fantastic. So unreal, how can anybody it takes us month they said it, they said it takes us months to go from Makkah to Jerusalem.
And he said he did all this in one night. And he went to Makkah from Morocco to Jerusalem, then into seven heavens and came back and all this all in one night. How is it possible? How do you believe this? Okay,
we already believe more than this.
He said we believe in Allah subhanaw taala. Have you seen Allah?
We believe in Jana and Johanna, have you seen Jana and Jana visa, we believe in the resurrection the day that we will be resurrected. And we will start before Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment, to have you seen that.
Right. So he said that we have seen we believe in so many things, if you haven't seen
so what is one more?
We believe because we believe mamas are awesome.
And he says if you believe in Allah subhanaw taala, the creator of the of the heavens and the earth. Just think about this. If we believe in Allah subhanaw taala who created everything. What's so difficult was one that I do take is Nafisa masala mana, multi dimensional journey.
Similarly, the SULEV Davia in the time that I work with a Vietnamese and Sarah was
negotiating the Treaty of Abia
there is the famous internet which is
about an hour and the photographer, the alarm
where he was so upset with the treaty, and what was happening with that treaty and how it was being written and so on. That
he went to a saucer center, because the treaty was very one sided, you know, right, very one sided. And the Muslims were being literally humiliated with this treaty. And this was a seller was not fighting it, he was just, he agreed to everything, whatever the Koresh was saying, because he was he was responding to the guidance that he was receiving from Allah subhanaw taala. And he was doing what Allah wanted him to do.
Obviously, given the circumstances and what was happening that all this could not be explained to each individual person, so people to trust him.
So I said an hour the alarm
went off, he says Elementary, so that is it not true that you are the enemy of Allah. There is yes, it is true. He said, is it not true that we are on the on the hook, and these people are on bathy? B are on the truth and these people are on falsehood? Is this not true? Ross Ross said yes, it is true.
So then, obviously, then why is that? Why are we accepting this treaty?
Let us fight if they stop us from making, we will fight.
But this was not the mosquitoes that this was not what Allah subhanaw taala wanted, and therefore we should have Sarah was being instructed to accept this treaty. Now as soon as Sarah
said to say, You know what, my rug will not let me down. But he didn't change the treaty. So say that our other Lana was still really upset he came over. And he said, he asked him, he said, what is happening here? Is it not true that he is this is the messenger of Allah. So then I woke up there and I said, Yes, it is true. That said an hour that is not true that we are on the truth. And these people are on the armed forces say now because of this. So they said yes, that is also true.
So Sarah was in where we stand in the street.
They have their own set to set an hour he said, Stop speaking.
Stop making these statements. He said grab hold of the stirrup of Russell realized the masala he said he will see you to to the right hand. His rub will not let him down. Allah will not
stop supporting the sources. And he will when he said he's doing what he's doing because he's being guided, you stay out of this.
This again showed the tremendous pain that our cities had in Allah subhanaw taala, in the souls of Salah, and in this whole issue of Islam and the matter away. Now, how does this relate without Ischia is to look at our hearts and say, what do we believe?
What is our opinion?
How strong is that?
The sign of efe is the absence of stress is the absence of
depression is the absence of all kinds of doubt.
If doubt is there, then it means you're not there. Doubt and yaki cannot exist together in the same chamber. Just like you cannot have dark, some light,
darkness is the name of the absence of light. If there is light, there's no darkness, you can create light you cannot create darkness.
So, you can create your cane and if you create your cane, then all forms of
anxiety, all forms of stress, they go
complete and total yaki Allah subhanaw taala and also the lies of lollies
and on the promises of Allah subhanho that
the first one there is the meeting with him on the depth
or this is do they remember venue? The purpose of all these lectures just here is for us to do the scale.
So let us try to get in touch with ourselves with our knifes with our heart
and see what is there
see what is there and remove it. Remove all the dross all the dirt and garbage. That's
one of the main one of the very important ways of doing that is to play the Agile
and to make a lot of the Coronavirus.
Try to do that as much as possible shall make this into a routine for yourself. Make up
for it I do make dua then read some Quran and then for the other brother go to the masjid.
make this into a routine for yourself inshallah.
Ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you whenever to be displeased. Ask Allah Subhana Allah to help you and to
purify your hearts for his pleasure
and to illuminate your hearts with his North.
What's another another very wild idea he was having maybe erotica, salam ala.
