Baku love Allah Allah in Vietnam.

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

My dear brothers, sisters elders,

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

we continue with our topic of three voices that speak to us and what to do about them.

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

But before that, I want to make an announcement

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

that I will not be here for the next eight weeks starting next week.

00:01:37--> 00:01:43

I'm going on a total immersion language learning course for the Arabic language in Vermont.

00:01:45--> 00:01:54

And the reason I'm making this announcement, first of all is to ask you for your dua that Allah subhanaw taala should grant this old brain the ability to learn the language.

00:01:57--> 00:02:02

And also because I heard some rumors and I want to put all those rumors to rest.

00:02:03--> 00:02:13

And my what I want to say I won't tell you what the rumors are, you can guess what I want to say to you that I'm going eight weeks out of my earned vacation of 12 weeks.

00:02:15--> 00:02:32

And the fee for the program, I am paying it not this mosque. So your donations to the mosque are safe, I don't take them. And the time that I'm taking is my time, which is my paid vacation. I'm using it for this.

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

So anyone tells you anything else you can ask them to come and talk to me.

00:02:39--> 00:02:51

Over the last two weeks, I spoke about the first of these voices which was the voice of shaitan. Today we will speak about the second and the third one. The second one is even more dangerous and that is the voice of our own knifes desire

00:02:54--> 00:03:00

and about the third voice, which if we heed and obey, then we can never ever go wrong.

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

knifes is an Arabic word

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

that occurs in the Quran many times

00:03:08--> 00:03:15

the literal meaning of that itself, and it has been translated as psyche and ego and soul and desire and breath.

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

In the context of this coda, we will take the meaning as desire.

00:03:21--> 00:03:33

I'm driving it Mr. Ravi Allahu anima reported that rasool Allah is Al Salam said, None of you can have faith until his desires comply with what I have brought.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

And this is in Irvine oviya.

00:03:39--> 00:03:56

And has been Malaga the Alonso said in Hadees, which is reported in Muslim, that also Allah is Allah Salam said, the son of Adam grows old, but two desires in him remain young. The desire for wealth and the desire for life.

00:03:57--> 00:04:30

I remind myself I knew that Islam is the name of a practice not a theory. The one who practices Islam is a Muslim, not the one who only knows about Islam, but doesn't practice it. Our eternal fate will be decided on the day of judgment based on what we did, not on what we knew. It is important to know because without correct knowledge, we cannot practice Islam or anything correctly. The purpose of acquiring knowledge however, is not for its own sake, but so that we can practice our religion.

00:04:32--> 00:04:45

Practice starts with wanting to practice and that is why the desire the right desire to please Allah subhanaw taala by following the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam is so important.

00:04:46--> 00:04:57

It is essential for us to recognize our desire and see what it is trying to lead us towards and to correct that focus, so that we can hope for ALLAH SubhanA does forgiveness and Jana Inshallah,

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

it is the nature of the

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

laughs The nature of the self to lead towards sin. Allah subhanaw taala told us instead of Joseph wama Oberon FC in enough Salah Amara Don't be su Illa Rahim Robbie. In Nairobi refer Rahim

00:05:19--> 00:05:36

usually Salam said and Allah quoted, and I do not seek to free myself from blame, for indeed, the self is ever inclined to evil. Except for those shown the mercy of my Rob, and surely my Rob is all Forgiving and most Merciful.

00:05:38--> 00:06:04

Anyone who thinks that this can happen to him or her must remember that this statement is Yusuf alayhi salam speaking. If he says that about his knifes interview of Allah protected by Allah subhanaw taala, then there is no one living today or ever who can say that he's more pious and stronger or more blessed and protected than the Nabhi of Allah. Usually Salam was if he saw his naps as a danger, what must we do?

00:06:05--> 00:06:45

This is the law of entropy, in a manner of speaking, to be stronger, faster, more physically and mentally fragile. To gain knowledge or skills to have a good marriage or children in short, to have anything of value. We need to make effort. If we do nothing, we just get weaker and slower and more disconnected with the world and more stupid and so on. Our nature is to regress to slide down the slope. To be inclined to sin does not mean it is good. It is what will happen if we don't take steps to prevent it. The good news is that all of that is preventable.

00:06:46--> 00:06:51

To prevent us from slipping. Allah subhanaw taala sent his book and his messengers, Allah Allah Allah He values

00:06:53--> 00:06:57

and commanded us to obey Him, and to follow Him in all aspects of life.

00:06:58--> 00:07:28

We spoke about chetanas deception, last two weeks, and we said that Allah subhanaw taala told us the shaitaan has no power over us. He can only whisper and tempt, but he can't force us to disobey Allah. The nerves however, is a part of us. In Ramadan, Shatin are chained but the nafs is free. The nerves does whatever we have trained it to do. And that is why childhood conditioning is so important.

00:07:29--> 00:07:40

A child is never too young to learn. Children learn from the time they open their eyes. Learning is a survival tool. If a child does not learn the child will die.

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

This is ingrained it's part of our our genes.

00:07:46--> 00:08:06

We fool ourselves to thinking that children don't understand, then we are horrified at what we taught them even if inadvertently. We've been trained to be obedient if we train them and if we have been trained to be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala the nafs will be inclined to obedience. If not, it will guide us to what appeals to which

00:08:07--> 00:08:24

the nafs is the animal part of our being and is drawn to what all animals are drawn towards, which is access in physical pleasures, gluttony, all addictions, the desire to have the biggest shiniest fastest and whatnot are all signs of the rule of the knifes.

00:08:25--> 00:08:34

Just look at our advertising today. See who the so called influencers are. The social, the social icons, the role, model the society,

00:08:35--> 00:08:55

see who they are, and you can see what's happening and what we are being mined steered towards. We are a society where a pop singer or actor is paid more for a single performance than a teacher earns in their entire life. And yet, we learned how society is becoming more and more corrupt.

00:08:57--> 00:09:01

The truth rule of life is you only get what you pay for.

00:09:03--> 00:09:20

Just look at your life and my life and you will see how true that is. The sooner we wake up to this, the sooner we will change and that is why Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to enter Islam completely. Not partially. Allah subhanaw taala said yeah, you Alladhina amanu

00:09:21--> 00:09:42

or the Holo is still me car fatten one of you who are patient one, in the whole Komodo movie, Allah said we which means all believers, enter Islam completely and totally and wholeheartedly and do not follow Shetlands footsteps. Surely He is your sworn enemy.

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

Our problem globally, is selective obedience. Selective obedience is disobedience. Selective obedience is arrogance. Allah subhanaw taala warned us and he said to me

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

You're gonna be Radel kita we will talk for Runa viva. For ma Jazza will my year follow that he come in come in LA his une Villa HYAH dunya. Well Yo Ma Yama to Euro Duna era Aisha de la them from Allah who we have a feeling I'm at Dharma Lu. Allah said which means Do you believe in some part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Do you pick and choose?

00:10:25--> 00:10:47

Is there any reward for those and Allah is using the word reward Jazza in a sarcastic way, is there any reward for those who do so among you, other than disgrace in this worldly life and being subjected to the harshest punishment on the day of judgment for Allah subhanaw taala has never unaware of what you do.

00:10:48--> 00:11:30

Islam is a practice, which like all practices benefits, only those who follow it completely. Partial practice is not only useless but harmful. Let us wake up and take real benefit from this beautiful divine blessing called Islam. How tragic are those who are given Islam as a gift seem to have so little value for it? We pick and choose instead of benefiting from what Allah subhanaw taala chose for us. We anger him by rejecting his gift. We can see that we weren't want. Let us step back from the brink before it is too late. And that is the foreign Toba to repent and return to Allah. Just this morning I saw

00:11:32--> 00:11:42

a sister who has come to take shahada Inshallah, after the Salah, we will go into the social hard for her to take Shahada. I saw the sister was come to take shahada she's not even Muslim yet.

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

But believe me Wallah if I look at her I can say this woman is born into Islam.

00:11:50--> 00:11:55

Nobody can say that this woman is not already a Muslim. Just so the parents

00:11:58--> 00:12:03

and I can I don't have to tell you. You know what we so called Born Muslims.

00:12:05--> 00:12:10

whose ancestors have been Muslims for 1000 years. What we say and what we do?

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

believe me Allah subhanaw taala has no favorites. with Allah. The most favorite is the one who obeys Him the most has.

00:12:24--> 00:12:29

And if you do not do that, then Allah subhanaw taala declared his judgment for the airbag and knifes.

00:12:31--> 00:12:57

The slaves of the of the knifes ALLAH SubhanA wa Benezet at a time when he ILAHA Anta Taku alayhi wa Akela Allah said, have you seen Oh Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the one who has taken their own desires as their God? Ila who our their worship their desires, will you then be a keeper over them, I wait to intercede for them meaning what? say do not intercede for them.

00:12:59--> 00:13:24

Unless Rantala call the following of the knifes over his command as worship of the nerves and order is messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam not to intercede for that person, what can be a more severe warning than this, that it is time to change ourselves. The final point about the novelty is that all desires are transient. They are temporary, they are short lived and quickly depreciate.

00:13:26--> 00:13:59

Anything new is exciting, but the excitement wears off rapidly. For those who are grateful it lasts a bit longer, but it's never the first day first show kind of level of pleasure. Just reflect on any wonderful experience that you had in your life. first new car first time you fly first class. First anything you enjoy. It's not the same the second time to you do that. There is a depreciation, our enjoyment decreases and becomes mundane. And that is why we have the term Been there done that.

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

And that is why the NEF seeks excess excess or newer experience more and more varied. Often going off into the realm of the bizarre of freaky.

00:14:12--> 00:14:30

That's what is happening around us and society all over the world, which rapidly slides towards all kinds of dangerous, evil disgusting things, in the name of new experiences as people today about their aspirations, and you hear statements, which reflect the greed mindset, more is better.

00:14:31--> 00:14:55

We don't take lessons from those who went before us whose normal was a million times better than our wildest dream. But who still left it all behind and went alone and naked, to give account to Allah. The neffs is like a bottomless pit. No matter how much you put into it. It will never fill Rasulullah Salem wanders about this greed

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

the Hadees of

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

which is a motorboat array. So you had these in Bukhari and Muslim. And when Monica della nos reported that a surah sallam said is the son of Adam had a very full of gold, he would want to have two valleys. Nothing fills his mouth, but the dust of the grave. Yet Allah subhanaw taala will relent, to whoever repents to him. Let us wake up before we are woken up by medical notes from the stupor that we call living and the rest to destruction that we call life. Hola. Hola. Esta for Allah de Vela convallis at the Muslims infrastructure in the work of him.

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

I'm going to Allah

00:15:45--> 00:15:53

and Henry Lai Hamden. cathedra on camera mr. Manisha to Allah Allah Hi la Allahu Ahad of la sharika wanna shadow nama Hamburg and the Hora su

00:15:55--> 00:16:18

Bacala Tida in Allaha, Mala Iike the whole new saloon Island maybe? Yeah, you're Latina Amano salary, he was selling with a sliver Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali Mohammed Kumar Selita Allah Ibrahim Allah Allah He might Nica Hamid and Majeed Allahumma barik ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed come over, Rahim Allah do you want to him in the ground we didn't budget

00:16:20--> 00:17:00

for those who repent? Allah subhanaw taala is forgiveness is boundless and last Ramadan as it he Lamin dabba will our man our Pamela Ramadan Salah Han for hola Iike you but did Allah who say to him has an AD account Hola Hola. Hola. Rahima. Allah said which means and for those who repent and believe and do good deeds, they are the ones whose evil deeds Allah will change the good deeds, not only forgiveness, but Allah subhanaw taala will reward them and turn those evil deeds into good deeds and give them a reward, not reward for the evil but the good deeds that comes that it's substituted with as a reward for Allah is all forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

I remind myself I knew that the time to choose is now

00:17:06--> 00:17:22

the last voice is the voice of our man. I don't mean that Allah will speak to us, but that it is the voice of our conscience, our innate nature, which Allah subhanaw taala created which can differentiate between good and evil. The question is, do we listen to it?

00:17:23--> 00:18:08

To do that we must connect with Allah subhanaw taala we must know Allah, we must feel Allah subhanaw taala his presence in our hearts, we must love Allah subhanho wa Taala over and above anyone or anything else, we must use our eyes not just to see things but to recognize the glory of Allah subhanaw taala around us. The amazing thing today is that thanks to technology that Allah subhanaw taala taught us we are able to see his creation in such incredible detail as never before. But because we have not been trained to recognize Allah in His creation, we don't see the creation as his science. That is truly tragic. And that is why Allah subhanaw taala showed us how to educate

00:18:08--> 00:18:23

first know the Creator then research in the creation. The result is automatic and beautiful. Allah subhanaw taala said in a visa case somehow they were not the Octillery lady when I heard Illa

00:18:27--> 00:18:43

Allah the Enya Coruna Allah wrote down Why do you want to be him Wyatt the effect on where the corona vehicle this summer they will rob Bernama kala koda

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

Subaru.

00:18:46--> 00:18:50

Subaru, Naka verbena, when

00:18:51--> 00:19:09

Allah said, which means indeed in the creation of the heavens in the earth, and the alternation of the day and the right, there are signs for people of intelligence. Who are they, they are those who remember Allah subhanaw taala, while standing, sitting and lying on their sides, which reflects every aspect of human existence.

00:19:10--> 00:19:25

And they reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth and they ask and they say, Oh, our Lord or our you have not created all of this without a purpose in vain. Glory beat you, protect us from the trauma to the fire.

00:19:26--> 00:19:50

But instead of teaching in this way, we have separated science and theology and you have created a gulf between the word of Allah in the Quran and His Word in the creation. Both are His Ayat, his signs, and that is why we have Allah ma who are ignorant about science and Muslim scientists, who cannot even recite Surah Al Fatiha correctly and neither of them sees that as a problem.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

When we know Allah subhanho wa Taala and learn to listen to his guidance, which is the book of Allah, and the teachings of His messenger.

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

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Sunnah of Rasulullah Selim, then our hearts open to His commands. We take comfort from what he said about how close he is to us. There is no time here now to speak about all of these ayat in detail but let me just give you a sample. Allah subhanaw taala della Sera Lila Hill mache Koval mother him for a nama Tuvalu for some our June law in Allah was you and Eileen. Allah said to Allah belong the east and the west. So wherever you turn, you are facing towards Allah, you will see the sign of Allah. And surely Allah subhanaw taala is all encompassing and all knowing for the one who recognizes this, Allah subhana wa belah asked a question ask

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

yourself what is my response? The question Allah asked is, Allah is Allah we cough in Abda

00:20:57--> 00:21:45

when you while you have free will you will come with full raka will read I mean do the he will my you really love from Allah human heart? Allah says Allah not sufficient for his live, yet they threaten you with our with other powerless gods. besides Allah, whoever Allah leaves to stray, will be left with no guide. The gods that we are threatened with today are not stone idols, but technology and ideas. We believe in those more than we believe in the word of Allah, may Allah forgive us. And that is shook and adultery as surely as praying to a statue. Just ask how many hours we spend in our phones. And how many hours in the Quran ask which we get tired of first, the Quran,

00:21:46--> 00:21:56

the Hadith era, the hotbar or Tiktok? Ask what we look towards first, when we have any problem, dua, or technology?

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

Do we factor Allah subhanho data into our lives at all?

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

Remember, I'm not saying don't look at technology.

00:22:07--> 00:22:12

First, which comes first, where which do you see as the source of the

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

solution that you are seeking?

00:22:18--> 00:22:28

If you don't do that, then we are worshipping, whichever we think of as first because that is the one we're looking to for the solution. The other one is secondary.

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

For those who recognize that Allah subhanaw taala is in our lives anyway.

00:22:36--> 00:23:09

We love that and want to connect with him. And he reassured us and he said Rama yet again Allah Jalla homak Raja where Zuko in haste Elia sin, my coworker Allah, Allah Hiva husband, in Allah ballyhoo Emery, Khadija and Allah Who liquidly Shane Cauldre and whoever is mindful of Allah whoever has taqwa, Allah subhanho wa taala, he will make a way out for him from all difficulties, and will provide them from sources they could never imagine.

00:23:10--> 00:23:39

And whoever puts their trust in Allah, then he alone is sufficient for them. Certainly, Allah Subhana Allah achieves his will. And Allah has already set a destiny for everything. And he Jalla Jalla who told us to ask him and promise to give us what we ask. But do we ask him? He said we're cholera boo como the only study of lagoon in Alavi and is stuck up ruin our Aniba dirty. So yeah, the whole owner, Johanna Dockery.

00:23:41--> 00:23:49

He said, which means your Rob has proclaimed call upon me and I will respond to you only as the developer, what board we want.

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

Surely those who are too proud to worship Me will enter hell, fully humbled.

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

In conclusion, three voices and three choices, but only one will lead to success in this world and the next.

00:24:08--> 00:24:30

A lot of our data left us free to choose, but centers guidance, both in Word and practice. He gave us example after example of what happens when we accept guidance. And when we don't, then he left us free to choose, he will respect that choice and will give us whatever we choose.

00:24:31--> 00:24:35

Question is, what do I want to choose for myself?

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

Ask Allah subhanaw taala della denodo to help us to do that which is pleasing to Me. And to save us from that which does not pleasing. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from all the evil that we know and we don't know. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to understand, to stop worrying about things and to help us to understand that as long as Allah is there

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

What is the need to worry about anything?

00:25:04--> 00:25:08

I will start worrying when Allah is no longer there. Now the will that will never happen

00:25:11--> 00:25:21

I will worry about my family and about my food and about my research and about my sustenance. When Allah subhanaw taala JoJo has run out

00:25:23--> 00:25:29

because he promised to fight to feed me when he can no longer do so. Then I will worry

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

and we know that his treasures never run out.

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

I will worry about enemies

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

when my enemies are stronger than ALLAH

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

that would happen

00:25:45--> 00:25:49

let the enemy call whoever he has has strengths

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

and I will call my Rob

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

let us see who wins

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

ask Allah Swatara to fill our hearts with your kin

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

with complete and total

00:26:09--> 00:26:11
