00:00:00--> 00:00:00

Salam

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

Hamad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't even

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

my brothers and sisters

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

many people are asking me, what should we do

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

in today's times

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

when

00:00:26--> 00:00:28

all that happening is happening in front of our eyes.

00:00:31--> 00:00:32

I won't go into the details of

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

the number of lives lost and entire families destroyed.

00:00:39--> 00:00:42

Magazine Children's Hospital homes, school bond,

00:00:43--> 00:00:48

shelters, bonds, I won't go into all that because all that is on the news and

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

one way or the other, we are watching that being informed about it.

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

Let me stick to what I think we should do. Because I have no answers. Just sharing with you my own thoughts and

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

struggles.

00:01:06--> 00:01:09

I think the first and most important thing to do is to return to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

Is to return to Allah

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

rasool Allah,

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

for the simple reason that

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

if it is not clear now it will never be clear.

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

There is only Allah Subhana Allah

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

who is alive, who is on wrangle,

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

who can change

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

what is happening in the world?

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

Nobody else

00:01:42--> 00:01:42

nobody else

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

we need to turn towards Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

whoever we may be

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

whether it's head of state,

00:01:54--> 00:01:59

whether it's person with authority and power and wealth of others and

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

ordinary garden variety lizard like me,

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

don't you?

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

What is the meaning of turning towards Allah?

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

So I'd be like a broken record.

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

The meaning of turning towards Allah

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

is to become obedient.

00:02:24--> 00:02:27

To obey Allah, and to stop obeying

00:02:28--> 00:02:36

knifes desires and to stop away obeying all those who are promoting the disobedience of others.

00:02:37--> 00:02:45

In one way or the other in one form or the other. By one name or the other. It doesn't matter what you want to call it.

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

It is the disobedience

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

and that

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

is not okay.

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

That is something that

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

we need to get away from.

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

No, I will not disobey

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

Allah

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

first and foremost,

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

you turn to Allah

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

weejuns of Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

begins with

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

not going to tincture

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

begins with or it

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

begins with La ilaha illAllah Muhammad

00:03:37--> 00:03:40

and believing in our hearts and saying with our tongues

00:03:42--> 00:03:47

and in living our lives by this Kalama paper

00:03:50--> 00:03:54

with Allah said you submit to love Lilina Armano Bill, Bill COVID Isabey

00:03:56--> 00:04:06

that Allah will make firms make firm the feet of the believers with this

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

call is the

00:04:10--> 00:04:19

Kalama the speech the statement which is clear and manifest and which is firm, a statement in which there is no doubt

00:04:21--> 00:04:22

a statement that

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

is the truth.

00:04:26--> 00:04:36

And they all truths is not dependent on anybody else is anybody anybody's belief. The truth is true. Even if no one believes it,

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

and I shall do Allah, Allah

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

or shut one Mohammed or

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

the

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

other.

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

This is the truth

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

and is something which is

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

undeniable

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

It consists also

00:05:07--> 00:05:14

of returning to Allah Swatara also consists of changing our lives. They said, they will come

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

in the sun, where

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

am i

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

Believing in the heart

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

seeing it with the tongue

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

and living by it,

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

acting upon it.

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

The first of those actions

00:05:35--> 00:05:42

is to worship Allah Sonata to pray to do Salah appointed time,

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

five times a day

00:05:46--> 00:05:52

as far as possible in the masjid as many of those times as possible in the masjid but definitely doing it not

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

anyone who's not praying

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

has not accepted Islam

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

I'm not making a statement or socialized medicine.

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

He said Allah had the luxury buy in and obeying the homeless Allah for one another ha ha

00:06:12--> 00:06:16

Okoma Hello Nice to see Ron he said they had the covenant

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

the agreement the divide dividing line,

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

the differentiator between them and us between the believers and non believers.

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

His

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

Salah seller

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

is the seller

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

from an another heart the one who rejects it doesn't do it and what

00:06:41--> 00:06:46

could come from that person is a disbeliever the person is going to recover the person

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

to save us from that

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

second part of returning to Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

is to connect our

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

so as the first part is no sugar, no Hoover, so Okay, the second part is second part of the agenda itself is to focus on the Sunnah of resources

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

to believe

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

that

00:07:16--> 00:07:19

Salam is the last and final in the center

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

and that there is no messenger after

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

and

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

believing universal meaning that we follow

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

that we obey Him that we emulate

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

imitation

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

in everything that we say are

00:07:42--> 00:07:43

part of the belief

00:07:45--> 00:07:48

in the caliber is to follow the Sunnah of Muhammad

00:07:50--> 00:07:58

sallallahu alayhi salam which the bonus is that you follow the Sunnah every action that you do

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

converts into an action of

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

worship,

00:08:04--> 00:08:13

a normal action which we will do satisfy our own needs, our own desires, the heating and drinking,

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

going to work studying

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

including

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

our sort of our

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

interaction with our spouses,

00:08:32--> 00:08:42

all of these actions, which are really for ourselves, for our pleasure, Survival Systems. They're done according to the sunnah

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

to how he did it,

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

they convert into

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

acts of worship,

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

rewards for

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

return returning to Allah subhanaw taala also involves equally important

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

in correcting the source of earning

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

and what we eat and Hara and eat.

00:09:10--> 00:09:11

If we earn haram

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

then our worship is not accepted or charity is not accepted.

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

If we earn haram, then our door is not accepted.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

And if you eat haram, the same thing.

00:09:27--> 00:09:33

Only haram means to stay away from all forms of earning which are less private.

00:09:35--> 00:09:44

The number one top of them is dealing in interest, interest base dealings of any kind any shape or form. Then of course,

00:09:45--> 00:09:51

extends to alcohol and gambling and whatnot. Others to think private.

00:09:52--> 00:09:58

But interest base earning I'm saying specifically with this is the most widespread thing among the Muslims.

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

home mortgages car loans, loans to study

00:10:07--> 00:10:12

all kinds of loans bank loans to do this other people may take a bank loan pay interest to buy a TV.

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

That's a double whammy

00:10:17--> 00:10:25

of being a bank getting a bank loan paying interest to bring something into into your house which is almost 100% Eva

00:10:26--> 00:10:34

with everything that is broadcast on that is either teetering on the edge or it is already in Hana.

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

How terrible is that?

00:10:40--> 00:10:43

So on Halloween and eternal eating

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

all vegetables are

00:10:48--> 00:11:07

the meat of animals, which are halal becomes Halal only if it is slaughtered in the prescribed way which is called Zambia, which means hand slaughtered by a Muslim meat that is slaughtered by a machine is like Herod killed,

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

killed by a machine

00:11:10--> 00:11:14

that is not halal. And no matter who tells you what, please don't believe the

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

stick to the truth. The truth is that for me to be halal, must be it must be hand slaughtered by and

00:11:24--> 00:11:36

if it is not handed over by Muslims stay far away from it. It is haram at the dead. It's like picking up something from the garbage pile or from picking up roadkill and eating it you wouldn't do it.

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

Don't do this either.

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

Because the same thing to eat have on your door is not accepted.

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

Your worship is not accepted your church.

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

We certainly don't need to be.

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

So what should we do in times like this is come back to

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

or next day jalla wa salam ala
