Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa salam O Allah

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

Muhammad

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

Allah

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

abajo

00:00:16--> 00:00:18

my brothers and sisters inshallah we

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

will start a new series of

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

classes from this week

00:00:29--> 00:00:33

which is on the about the wisdom of handyman. Awesome.

00:00:36--> 00:01:18

But before we go there I want to begin by a few opening remarks. The first thing is, I want to remind myself when you that Islam is the name of a practice. Islam is not the name of a theory, Islam is not the name of a philosophy. Islam is the name of a practice. And like any practice, the result comes only from practice. Benefit comes only from practice, whether it's Islam, or whether it is any other practice, for example, I always give the example of martial arts, take any martial art is a practice, take anything as a practice exciting, for example.

00:01:19--> 00:01:30

The only way you will save yourself from drowning is if you know how to swim, if you can actually swim, knowing about swimming will not help you, knowing how to swim with it.

00:01:32--> 00:02:07

So also, knowing about Judo, knowing about karate will not help you in a fight. actually being able to practice actually being able to use Judo and karate will help you to defend yourself. So also with Islam, knowing about Islam is not sufficient, we have to know about Islam. Obviously, if you don't know about it, you can't do anything. But just remaining at that level, I just know about the but I do not practice the the this does not help anybody. Now, this is something that is very critical to understand.

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

And the reason why we have these two classes, we did a whole series,

00:02:15--> 00:02:31

almost four months, we did this series on the Syrah for Applied Syrah, we have a series of classes. And now we are doing inshallah, starting today, the wisdom of populism, and then we'll do other things later on going forward.

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

The whole point is to reiterate

00:02:36--> 00:03:11

the importance of practice number one, and number two, to give us role models, and the best of the role models, we have seen the life or sort of himself. And then we will see other role models, which is the lives of our Salah, fissara, he pious predecessors, the Allah of this oma the eye of the soma, and so on, and see what is what it is the The reason I'm doing this is because at the end of the day, they were human beings, they were people like you and me. They were people with the same kinds of

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

priorities or not priority, the same kinds of

00:03:17--> 00:03:46

constraints, the same kinds of resources, the same kinds of trials and tribulations their lives. Yet, they managed to do phenomenal things. And they managed to live lives, which are so illustrious that sitting here today, almost 1000 years later, in some cases, more than 1000 years later, we take their name, we remember them, we take their name with honor and with respect.

00:03:49--> 00:04:03

If I die tomorrow, I can guarantee you that 1000 years from now, and 100 I don't even want that. But my point is, even if I wanted it for about 1000 years, 100 years from today, nobody will know who I was. Maybe 10 years from now, nobody will know who I was.

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

And if you don't believe me, let me ask you a very simple question which I asked everyone when I talk about this. And that question is how many of you prayed for the forgiveness of your grandparents? Your father's parents, your mother's parents? How many of you prayed for the forgiveness of your grandparents today in that?

00:04:28--> 00:04:36

So you have just just that's just one generation. So in one generation, if you have not even prayed for your grandfather or your grandmother?

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

Where is the remembers?

00:04:45--> 00:04:51

For many people, if I asked you this question and say what was the name of your grandmother?

00:04:52--> 00:04:57

grandfather's name you will remember but your grandmother, your mother's mother, or your father's mother, What was her name?

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

There are many people who do

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

No,

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

no, no.

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

You called her my agenda or Ronnie or daddy or whatever that is. You do not know what her name was. I am saying that is one generation You don't even know their name. wisdoms.

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

yet. We have people like this we have a solid versity we have

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

some we have

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

some, you have Rashidi,

00:05:34--> 00:05:43

whose name today? Who is there a restaurant know the name of a worker, a city who does not know the name of Cobra, who is there who does not know the name?

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

and so on and so on.

00:05:48--> 00:05:55

Why do we know their names when we do not even know the names of our own grandparents?

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

That is the point to think

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

that is the point for us to reflect on and think and say, what is it that Allah subhanho wa Taala caused, that their memory remains 1000 years, 1200 years, 1300 years, 1400 years after they died? And that memory is alive and well. Their names are being taken across the world by people who have no relationship to them whatsoever. They're not of the same race. They're not of the same creed, culture, nothing language, yet they take their name and they take that name with honor and respect. Why?

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

Why?

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

And the reason is only one which is that they live their lives to please Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah

00:06:48--> 00:06:57

not for any other reason. Their whole life reward around this question is my Rob geladeira who pleased with me

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

all their life decisions were taken on this basis.

00:07:04--> 00:07:08

And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala raised their levels, raise their status.

00:07:09--> 00:07:24

There's a famous story about one of the taboo and his name was Habiba. agilely he was from from Iran. And they used to call imaginary because he didn't speak Arabic. He was a student of Iran.

00:07:26--> 00:07:53

So however, as we had an accented Arabic so he didn't speak Arabic. Now, hadn't made use of was the governor of back at that time have gotten of ages. And he is has been either use of was not to be a very tough kind of guy very cruel and so on. Now, he had some issue with US Embassy, and he sent troops to arrest Hassan was Iraq.

00:07:54--> 00:07:58

So Hassan al Bashir artillery took refuge in the

00:07:59--> 00:08:10

in the I can't even call it a house because it was it was a cell it was it was like one room in which have you as I used to stay. So hustle and bustle he went and he

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

took refuge in the room of heavy work.

00:08:16--> 00:08:20

So the troops came, somebody told them it has embassies hiding there.

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

So the soldiers came. They asked,

00:08:24--> 00:08:29

Have you ever asked me? They said is Hassan Masri in your room? He said yes.

00:08:32--> 00:08:36

He said yes. So they went inside the search to the room they came out disease is not here.

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

You are lying to us? No, not like you. That is the truth. He said

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

they wanted again. They said they couldn't find him. They came back out. He said You are a liar.

00:08:49--> 00:08:53

They went in search the third time they came back they said no You are a liar. And they went to it

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

hasn't been anybody came out

00:08:57--> 00:09:25

and said, I have to lie. You went dark for me. So Allah subhanaw taala put a curtain before their eyes and they could not see me. Have you ever asked me sir I made no dua. He said Allah hate you because I spoke the truth. Allah subhanho wa Taala respected the truth. If I had lied, we would have both been humiliated. He said they would have caught you and I would have been I would also have eliminated. You said I don't I didn't make any noise. It's just that I spoke the truth. They said where are you inside?

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

Now it is this issue of the

00:09:33--> 00:09:54

holder of almost Renata. The fact that I'm not sure that it has it. Unless Valentina is looking at us watching us listening to us. Whatever we are doing is in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is a fact. The question is how much do we understand and How real is it to us?

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

It's not a question of whether it's a factor right so question is and not

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

Do you have a belief or belief is one level, because belief is mostly collected for a lot of us belief is in the head.

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

This is in the heart.

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

I usually use this example to illustrate the difference between a man and a man as in I believe, and yaqeen. As in I know.

00:10:20--> 00:10:47

There is a difference between the two and the example I give is, imagine that you are going for a walk, you know, on a beachside resort, you're walking along the the sea on one side. And on the other side, there are these massive mansions of billionaires seafront houses. And as you walk along this road, you see you notice that every house has huge big wall, big gates, and

00:10:49--> 00:10:53

on every gate, there is a sign saying beware of dark.

00:10:54--> 00:11:16

Right? So at that point in time, if somebody told you, what is that science will say, it says the word of God, what does it mean? It means that there is a dangerous dog inside this house. And we should be beware of that dog, we should be careful about this dog. Sorry. So supposing somebody says, Do you believe that? Of course I believe it? I mean, why would I not believe it yours, this big sign and so on? And so I believe it.

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

Do you believe in the Day of Judgment, yes, I believe it. Why? Because it's really

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

the same thing they have judgment.

00:11:27--> 00:11:36

Now as you continue to walk, you come to one gate and as you come before the gate, you realize the gate is half open.

00:11:38--> 00:11:44

And as you come before the half open the open part of the gate, there is a huge, massive Rottweiler.

00:11:45--> 00:11:53

The moment the Rottweiler sees you, the Rottweiler gets up stands up in the zeal out of respect for you.

00:11:54--> 00:12:03

Right and then he proceeds to come towards you to for Mustafa to shake your hand and to to to hurt you and you know when you are after all

00:12:07--> 00:12:08

now gentlemen, me

00:12:09--> 00:12:15

your belief that there is a dangerous dog in this house? Has that belief changed?

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

No sembly there is no what change

00:12:21--> 00:12:22

did anything change?

00:12:24--> 00:12:34

certainty you suddenly understood the meaning of what dangerous dog meaning how does that connect with me?

00:12:36--> 00:12:53

See you understand difference is still a dog it's not a tiger it's not a lion it's not a leopard still the same thing there is a dangerous dog however until that point in time there is a dangerous dog was something I believed in Yeah, that's right. does it connect to me? Not really until the dog saw one

00:12:55--> 00:13:09

but the moment I'm now standing in front of the dog the dog is standing up the dog is coming towards me now I suddenly understand the meaning of dangerous dog dangerous to who to me. When now

00:13:10--> 00:13:16

and what is the sign that this thing has changed inside me? What are the side my actions?

00:13:18--> 00:13:22

What actions at this point in time I will do something

00:13:23--> 00:13:33

right if I have a gun I brought my gun. If I can run like hell I run like hell it is a tree I try I try climbing the tree. If nothing else, I will say Allah Allah, Allah.

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

Allah, I'm going to die anyway. I mean, at least let me just die with a caravan. I mean,

00:13:39--> 00:13:46

right something you will do, you will take some action. Action is the sign of belief.

00:13:48--> 00:13:56

This is the difference between Mr. And Mrs. Yes, we have a belief. You believe in Allah. Yes, of course. Do you believe the day of judgment? Yes, of course.

00:13:57--> 00:13:58

Yes, of course.

00:13:59--> 00:14:04

We are not going to say though. We believe in all of this. How does that connect with you?

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

I really don't know.

00:14:09--> 00:14:34

Can I see the sign of this belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala in Yola, Hara in Jana. Juana in Mahabharata, Salah in my life, if you sit down with a microscope it with my life and newsasia from morning till night, what are you doing? Let me check your life to see is this belief reflected? Will you see it? If you see that Alhamdulillah if you don't see that, then you must tell me. There's only words

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

there's only words.

00:14:40--> 00:14:45

Now how did that how that happened because we changed the norm of teaching and learning.

00:14:49--> 00:14:53

Allah subhanaw taala join taleem with Talia

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

which resulted in L.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Now and

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

We haven't done all of this for the Quran. Allah Rhonda the four things that you mentioned. With respect Rosa Sandra

00:15:07--> 00:15:36

we're honest Ramadan as a Manila, Nina is bosavi Rasulullah Mina boozy year through Allah He Maya. He was a key him Makita was a common one in Ghana in Kowloon. Luffy the lolly movie, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned these four things. So Allah said ye through la my RP, to recite to them the ayah of Allah inform the people about the color of Allah inform the people about what Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered right.

00:15:37--> 00:16:00

We use a key him purify them why purify because for this column to take root imagine the column is a seed which will produce a beautiful tree which will produce some beautiful fruit for this tree to take root you have to prepare the soil, what is the soil the soil is our heart, the soil is our body the soil is our class the soil is our Marbella

00:16:01--> 00:16:07

using key and purify them internally the skeletal knifes externally that we add to the flat.

00:16:09--> 00:16:31

Then when you Alamo Makita, then teach them the hook. The hook has been already informed the IRS have already been informed that Mr. rossana was instructed then purify them. Now explain these to them, teach them the kita one sigma and teach them and give them your wisdom which is the wisdom of practicing that

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

these four things and the four elements

00:16:36--> 00:17:02

are for individual elements. There are four related elements there are there are four steps in the acquisition of knowledge of Islam. And like anything, if you miss out some steps, you will not have perfect knowledge the knowledge will get corrupted. What we have done by and large is out of the four steps we have kept step number one and step number three, step number two and step number four we have followed

00:17:03--> 00:17:19

you through la vida de la will Quran be a VP a lot of attention to that what is up what is HIPAA? And how is it to be recited what is 30 all of this we pay a lot of attention to there's nothing wrong with that that should be done. But the scale will not

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

be zero focus or that

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

the scale is not even a subject in our

00:17:28--> 00:17:36

in our jam yet it is not even a subject in the religious teaching institutions of our world.

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

They don't even pretend to teach it anymore.

00:17:41--> 00:17:53

There we go law zero whatever somebody loves happens to learn because of wherever he is with the law, the law that's it period. Is there a proper course of study? No.

00:17:54--> 00:18:10

You're welcome to go and check I'm not just making these statements I am associated with all kinds of religious rituals and not one single phrase I say this thing everywhere. So number two step dermatological and has given us we have forgotten which means preparation is zero 11 Yes, we focus on column

00:18:11--> 00:18:22

third one you only will get that yes we focus on that because then we look at fifth we look at this we look at we look at you know all the we look at the the

00:18:23--> 00:18:39

all of the basically related with the book so we look at look at you know, issues of the but last one hikma which is the actual practice of the living matters so now once again

00:18:41--> 00:18:41

absent

00:18:43--> 00:18:48

we can do some sooner we like everybody knows the tsunami used to love sweets everybody's also eating

00:18:52--> 00:18:56

What about other things? only eating sweet isn't my brother is

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

lovely because he's got his the

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

chef for sweets, but he's the one who does use it.

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

And that is the reason why sometimes I say

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

when you remove

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

data from Delhi

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

the node went out of it.

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

Only the words remain.

00:19:26--> 00:19:33

For my speaking people I say this that I said above or below Kota limbs Allah Korea.

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

Todo el se new Nicaragua and phosphoric.

00:19:42--> 00:19:48

Now the reason why we are talking about all of these is because we are talking about people who did not do this.

00:19:51--> 00:19:52

Combined and kept these things

00:19:54--> 00:20:00

have the mallas route to that he spent 30 years in the company

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

aphasia

00:20:01--> 00:20:04

and cerebral palsy 30 years

00:20:06--> 00:20:23

why is not even done because it was so dumb that he couldn't learn you know, quickly because we have people who today they spend six years eight years in a mother's and they come out with the with a tag of Ireland Maulana share villain the villain.

00:20:24--> 00:20:35

So how does it when Assam spent 30 years How does improve Omar Abdullah Mubarak, he said I spent 30 years studying other before I approached him

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

30 years

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

what was the result of that? What was the result of printing 30 years

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

of work?

00:20:49--> 00:20:54

There was a man a Jewish man who had a house next to that ocula Beauvoir. So,

00:20:55--> 00:21:00

he heard that this huge man was selling his house and that he was asking for double the market price.

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

Twice. So if the house was worth 100,000

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

the gnarly man was asking for two or

00:21:09--> 00:21:17

so people went dissolve the house is a find is good. We I want to buy the house. But his price is twice the price. He said do you know who's your neighbor?

00:21:18--> 00:21:24

He said 100,000 for the house, the other 100,000 is so that you will be the labor of love in work.

00:21:29--> 00:21:37

And this is not this is it? Believe me this is nothing new. We practice the same thing today. You want to go talk to a real estate agent,

00:21:38--> 00:21:45

especially in cities, talk to a real estate agent and say, I want to I want to play the music. What kind of a test do you want?

00:21:46--> 00:21:54

What kind of What do you mean? What kind of address? It means if you want to live, for example, in a very high upmarket address,

00:21:56--> 00:22:03

then the house is going to cost you much more. It's not a matter of saying the house has three bedrooms or three bedrooms is where is it located?

00:22:04--> 00:22:09

Then location has has monetary as dollar value. The address counts.

00:22:10--> 00:22:10

Right?

00:22:13--> 00:22:20

Here is not our address as in which location is the address as you never know. How does that Who's your neighbor? How does it happen, man?

00:22:21--> 00:22:31

To complete the story, I went to the bank he told him to Why are you selling the house? He said I need money available works and I'll give you the money you say I want to have my name. Roger mouse.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

This is the issue of law.

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

People who practiced

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

xmrv Manasa

00:22:43--> 00:22:43

he is

00:22:45--> 00:22:50

one of the one of the stories that he voted for him and the story is also attributed was embassy

00:22:52--> 00:23:01

and I'm the lead it's a beautiful story whoever is the correct attribution of Malala they asked him they will add them and assemble one of the things he was known for was his talk Coronavirus.

00:23:03--> 00:23:08

total and complete talk Gala. So, they asked him they said how is it that you have this kind of

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

you have this trusted

00:23:11--> 00:23:34

hardware assumption because of four things. He said one I have convinced that become convinced that nobody can take what Allah has for me. The minus minus no one can take it from number one. He said number two I have convinced that I have become convinced that nobody will do my deeds for me. What I have to do my ama somewhere else will not do my Amel for me.

00:23:36--> 00:23:51

My Salah I have to pray somebody else can't come and pray wise by Amara third thing is that I have conveyed I have become convinced and I am convinced that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching me here and also I am shy and I am ashamed to commit any sin.

00:23:53--> 00:23:58

Anytime I have this temptation, I immediately remind myself Allah Subhana Allah is watching.

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

So, how can I do it?

00:24:03--> 00:24:08

Number four, he said I have convinced myself that one day I will die.

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

And so I prepare for that. Now that we have these four things,

00:24:15--> 00:24:19

which one of us is here to whom these four things do not apply?

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

Who has written our risk?

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

Allah

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

right. Who will do our deeds for us? Nobody.

00:24:31--> 00:24:33

is Allah watching us? Yes.

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

Will I die one day? Yes.

00:24:38--> 00:24:56

So nothing has changed. How come when one person is happy Melissa lived a life of complete tranquility and lack of stress. Talk about last minute unintelligible and how is it that we Illa Mashallah are full of stress and worry this that and what level whatever depth why

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

issue of practice

00:25:01--> 00:25:04

As I said, the test is the practice.

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

test to the practice.

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

So have you ever liked that?

00:25:13--> 00:25:27

First of the eight lessons, he went to visit his check? Sure, shampoo bulky. After spending 30 years with him, then he went away somewhere and so on so forth. He was engaged in different things. Then many years later, he went to visitation.

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

So when he visited him and

00:25:30--> 00:25:38

he shared septum, How many years did you spend with me? He said, 30 years. He just said to me in 30 years, what did you learn from me?

00:25:39--> 00:25:42

How do Allah subhanaw taala set reminder eight things from

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

you. She said in a way.

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

He said in 30 years, you learn only eight things.

00:25:53--> 00:25:54

He said yes. 30 years.

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

So he said, Okay, what are these eight things,

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

inshallah, that we will continue in this season. So the first one, I'll tell you

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

my purpose again of saying this is to remind ourselves, for us to go back home and reflect on this in the context of our own lives. Please understand, this is not this is not a storytelling class. I hope you enjoy the class, but that's not my purpose. is not entertainment was to go and reflect and say, you know, how does this apply to me?

00:26:28--> 00:26:38

He said to his share, he said, the first thing I learned from you is that I observed the people I looked at the people and I saw that they love things.

00:26:40--> 00:26:56

They love things. They love other people, they love their children, they love their spouses, they love their possessions. They love Well, they love power, authority, different people love different things. But he said everyone has his book.

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

Everyone has his book.

00:27:04--> 00:27:09

This is what I observed. He said, I observe I looked at people and I found Everyone has his or her.

00:27:10--> 00:27:17

He said then I reflected on the words of Allah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:27:18--> 00:27:19

who said

00:27:21--> 00:27:32

that when a man dies, when a person dies, three things follow him to his grave. To have them return one goes within

00:27:33--> 00:27:37

the three things that follow him to his grave is his family.

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

His wealth and his deeds.

00:27:42--> 00:27:53

The family will bury him. The word does not go physically when the money doesn't go with it, but meaning it is still there in his name. He said the family and the wealth, turn back the deed school.

00:27:54--> 00:27:58

He said therefore I decided to make my

00:27:59--> 00:28:18

what I love my deeds. Because if you go with me, there is no point in me making my family the most beloved or my wealth most beloved because it is going to go back it is not coming with me. So I decided to make my deeds, my beloved so that they will go with me.

00:28:20--> 00:28:21

Now think about this.

00:28:22--> 00:28:25

Story is easy. Now comes a problem.

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

What is the meaning of

00:28:30--> 00:28:45

how do you know that somebody or something is beloved to you? There is a test right? Number one is the test is that whatever is beloved to you, you want to spend the maximum amount of time with them.

00:28:46--> 00:28:56

whatever else you may be forced to do, you will do but you will return to them as quickly as you can. And you will try to spend as much time with them as you can.

00:28:58--> 00:29:13

Even if it's a bad thing, I mean imagine people who are addicted to you know substance abuse or they're addicted to pornography or something I'm giving you a bad example. But because they are powerful example first understand people will try to spend a maximum amount of time on that because they love that thing.

00:29:15--> 00:29:53

Take good example somebody you know you love your wife You love your husband Angela Bella give you a relationship like this where you love them and you want to spend time with them. But the point is that the test is whatever you like so whether you are a stamp collector, you love collecting stamps or you love gardening, supposing you love hunting, so what do you love, you know, outdoor activities supposing you love whatever it is you love you the test of it is it is that activity or it is that person or individual or thing with which you want to spend the maximum amount of time number one. Number two is the thing you love is the thing which gives you maximum enjoyment.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

Right? What you love sometimes when I when I teach classes for teachers

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

As opposed to I've been a teacher myself 40 years now I'm gonna ask this question I tell people how many of you are teaching because you are getting a salary?

00:30:11--> 00:30:15

Number two question is how many of you will teach if you had to teach for nothing free?

00:30:16--> 00:30:19

Third question is how many of you will pay to teach

00:30:22--> 00:30:29

you're not getting a salary, you're not getting a salary you're not teaching for free you are saying I will pay you to allow me to teach

00:30:30--> 00:30:42

that that is the one the one who is willing to do that the one who is willing to say I am going to spend my money my time which is which has $1 value on it and I want to give this to for free that is a person who really loves this

00:30:45--> 00:30:57

The others are also teachers and we will not that they are not teaching or they're not saying they're evil people no but if you say I love teaching, what is the sign you will pay similar difference if you say I love outdoor activity, you want to go snowboarding you know what it costs

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

just to go face down on a board down a hill you're paying hundreds of dollars

00:31:04--> 00:31:20

i would say you mad I mean, why would you want to first of all you drive 200 miles, go on Tower Hill. Right? And on top of that you use you get on this board or face down or that board you're out of control, you're going down the slope with a tree that's it, you know your history

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

and what are you paying money? Because you love doing that?

00:31:26--> 00:31:27

You love doing that?

00:31:28--> 00:31:34

So, question is, if I say I love doing good deeds, what is the proof?

00:31:35--> 00:31:41

What is the proof? How much time am I spending in doing good deeds?

00:31:42--> 00:31:46

How much of enjoyment Am I not talking about sahasra

00:31:47--> 00:31:55

and talking about personal injury Allah will give some inshallah we are not talking about I am saying personal enjoyment from that, how much am I getting?

00:31:57--> 00:32:09

Now what is the what is the proof? What is the daily that you should get enjoyment? What is the day that you should spend more time in the activity that you love? We have the best believe is the varied from the life of

00:32:11--> 00:32:14

what did you used to say to Malala Delano with regard to other?

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

Give us rest

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

with this

00:32:26--> 00:32:30

give us rest with this Salah What did we call Salah

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

correlate to a

00:32:34--> 00:32:53

coolness of my eyes. Somebody asked the servant who lived nearby some of the llama. They said tell me about the life of your pastor. He said he waits from one seller for the next waits for one seller for the next and in between he resets

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

love to be with a lot.

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

So what do you do?

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

resolution of Quran reflection on

00:33:06--> 00:33:14

Salah, extra Salah, the hedgerow now I feel fasting for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala now I feel

00:33:17--> 00:33:21

it's not just a matter of doing good deeds, it's a matter of loving them.

00:33:23--> 00:33:31

Rather mannerisms. I know that people love things, but the problem with what they love is they have to leave it behind.

00:33:32--> 00:33:42

doesn't go with it. I don't want to do that. I want to love something which goes with me. What is that? deeds? Because this is what Rasul Allah is.

00:33:43--> 00:34:02

So I love the deeds. So my my, my submission to you is, let us all reflect on this and say that not only should we do good deeds, that's a we know this is understood. Do we love them? And if we don't love them, what do I need to do to love them?

00:34:03--> 00:34:05

How can I love myself

00:34:07--> 00:34:30

and focus on it? How can I love myself? How can I pray to God in such a way that I don't want you to finish? I do not want to say Salah I want to stay in that tour I asked for the all night. How can I bring myself up to that level? It's not a matter of just coming and pray. Okay, I have to pray, I pray I vocalize now I will do what I feel like doing which is you know, whatever, whatever else you do.

00:34:32--> 00:34:36

No tax Allah. I love this Allah so much. What can

00:34:38--> 00:34:42

I want to end with the beautiful story of Ultima rasa. And

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

his daughter I mentioned is very important. I will do but I think just to complete in this session. How do I know some of the land I wanted to go watch? So this was in his heart. He had his desire, but he was he didn't have much money. So they didn't have any

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

No money for the household and so on so forth. So as the time for hydro approached, and the caravans were leaving, how the mannerism was became sadder and sadder a bit darker no smell. No look very sad. One day his little daughter he she saw him crying. He said why okay?

00:35:20--> 00:35:21

He said because I want to go over.

00:35:22--> 00:35:38

I have no money. I don't have money to leave behind for you people. I have barely enough money just for the ticket of the caravan but go there to stay and you know, in those days, it was not some 5g activity. They went for months.

00:35:40--> 00:35:45

So I draw his daughter said, Allah Subhana. Allah said mama De La Jolla, Masada

00:35:48--> 00:36:07

Amaya double Corolla Hippo is. The one who was taqwa Allah will solve his problems will extract him from his difficulties and will provide him from sources that he could not imagine. And the one for whom to handle the one who has Docker Allah, who relies on Allah Allah will become sufficient for him. She said you go

00:36:17--> 00:36:23

as the guy went forward, and as they were going, the head of the Garmin

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

got bitten by a scorpion.

00:36:28--> 00:36:54

So he was in intense pain having Alyssa was there with him. So he recycles or the vodka embed door for him. And the man became fine. His pin disappeared and he had immediate relief. He was so happy that he said to alcoholism, I am your coffee. I will take responsibility for all your expenses until you come back hope

00:36:56--> 00:37:05

to have you as a maid da and he said Yala, you have provided for me now provide for my family because they are they have no they have no sustenance.

00:37:07--> 00:37:15

Back home in the family, they are running out of money they are running out of food finally they are in a state where they are in great difficulty.

00:37:17--> 00:37:33

So they blame this little girl, the mother and others they tell this girl You are the one and you you know you've made all this thing you told your father to boy and so on so forth. My father is not your seagull we are in difficulty. This girl her responses. She started laughing.

00:37:34--> 00:37:38

This is what kind of the how we were laughing we look we had difficulty while laughing.

00:37:39--> 00:37:41

She said Who is arasaka?

00:37:44--> 00:37:49

who is who is who is who is the provider who is the

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

taker

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

who is the Sustainer and who is the consumer?

00:37:56--> 00:37:57

They said arasaka is Allah?

00:37:59--> 00:38:08

He said what about our father? Is he Arosa Rosa, what is he is bazoo he is a consumer. She isn't the consumer left? Rosa is here. Why? Why are you crying?

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

00:38:14--> 00:38:21

Did our Asarco know the motto when he's a consumer? The consumer went what do we get? We don't get

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

the result.

00:38:25--> 00:38:32

Then she went inside into her room and she raised her hand. She raised her hand and she said yeah Allah

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

kolu kanak

00:38:36--> 00:38:37

Under the cold and you say ammonia

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

this is what you said.

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

This girl raised her hand

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

there was a knock on the door.

00:38:59--> 00:39:03

The over the road. There is the ADC

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

the commander of the sinefa

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

right.

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

And the governor says the Khalifa is passing by his run out of water Do you have some water

00:39:15--> 00:39:49

to the city? Yes, they have some water they brought his water they put it in rice jug and so on because going to the Khalifa they you know they beautified it and they gave them the water and the honey five grand is what? Allah subhana wa tada put Baraka and his word that Oliver loved his water. He said I've never drunk, better water in my life. It is what is so sweet. is such a lovely why Where did you get this one of them? There's a woman in from this house across the shoulder. He said whose houses Well, this is the house of hottie bilasa.

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

So halifa said the chef, he said is that is the only visit the Sidious he said Let us go I want to say silently

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

They said yeah, I mean, he is not he has gone for Hajj.

00:40:05--> 00:40:09

So the very positive he has gone for us that his family is my responsibility.

00:40:13--> 00:40:31

And then the halifa took off his bed he had this, he was wearing this belt and you know this beds, first of all the bed itself would have been would have gold and silver, it was started with jewels, and the bench had pockets as the pockets over nominee for court coins. So the Saliba took up his belt and he threw the belt over the wall into the house.

00:40:32--> 00:40:35

And then he said, Whoever loves me do what I have done.

00:40:36--> 00:40:46

So his whole entourage, all the people who were with him, they took out their wealth, they took off their money, pouches, they threw them into the house, this house suddenly had grown everywhere.

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

And they had they had enough gold to last them for the whole of their lives alone.

00:40:54--> 00:40:59

So everyone is very happy. The mother, the brothers and sisters, this little girl is crying.

00:41:03--> 00:41:04

This girl is crying.

00:41:06--> 00:41:12

The mother is in what kind of must see the girl or even when we were starving, you are laughing.

00:41:13--> 00:41:17

Now we have gone till we die. That is enough. And you are crying.

00:41:21--> 00:41:22

She said I'm crying because

00:41:24--> 00:41:29

one slave who cannot do anything for himself.

00:41:31--> 00:41:36

One slave, who cannot do anything for himself, looks at us with Cara

00:41:38--> 00:41:40

looks at us with mercy one time

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

at this is there isn't

00:41:46--> 00:41:49

one slave who can do nothing for himself

00:41:50--> 00:41:54

looks at us with mercy one single time.

00:41:55--> 00:42:04

And this is the result. Imagine what will happen if urahara haven looks at us with another property.

00:42:06--> 00:42:07

That's okay.

00:42:15--> 00:42:19

I want to close with this story. beautiful story. But this is a story of people who practiced
