smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala, mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Sleeman, Kaziranga sera from abajo.

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

May Devon sisters, may Allah subhanaw taala accept our work and May Allah acts May Allah make it a means of earning his pleasure. The most important thing to understand is that the reason we do anything,

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

the real reason should only be one, which is to earn the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala

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

nothing else matters, the only thing which matters is, is Allah pleased with me or not? Whether I live, whether my lifespan is one minute, or whether it is, you know, a million years,

00:00:56--> 00:01:01

whether I live whatever conditions I live in whatever

00:01:02--> 00:01:25

situation meaning, whether I am rich or poor, whether I live healthy or unhealthy, whatever the ultimate point is, we are not going to be questioned about any of the conditions, we will be questioned about what we did, you will not be asked what happened, we will be asked what did you do.

00:01:26--> 00:01:44

And that is why I remind myself and you that let us focus on how we live our lives. Because that is what we are answerable to Allah subhanaw taala for how not what, what how I'm reading sisters, is like Allah,

00:01:45--> 00:02:36

Allah has given us the opportunity to learn, and Allah has given us the opportunity to practice what we learn. And we ask Allah to enable us to take full advantage of these opportunities and to benefit from this and we ask Allah Subhana Allah who, for his pleasure, and for his reward for this, the purpose of all of these workshops, and I usually begin by saying this in every workshop, because there are new people every time. So the purpose of all of this is only one which is to bring Islam into our lives. Even though we have a particular session called Living Islam, the purpose of everything is to live Islam. It's not as if only what we learn in the living Islam. Class is for

00:02:36--> 00:03:01

that everything we learn is in order to practice it, meaning in order for us to live Islam. So therefore, let us focus on this and say, what is it that I can do? What is it that I should do in order that I practice Islam in my life, I remind myself I knew that the beauty of Islam is that it's practice only best tools.

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

Goodness on the person who practices it's not something where in the practice of Islam you have to suffer in order to get some benefits in some other place. No, Islam does not tell us to do that. Islam tells us to live our lives in a way which is highly beneficial which is highly powerful which is very graceful which is very beautiful. And in the process, also earn gentlemen in the process also earn the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we meet him inshallah,

00:03:39--> 00:04:29

we are looking at the lessons from the life of Luqman Alayhi Salaam because this life was so beautiful, that Allah subhanaw taala quoted his life for us to learn from as he quoted the lives of his I'm Dr. Lim Salaam and have special notice and special significance is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala told us to look at the advice that laquan Elisa Lam gave to his son. We have been looking until now in this class at the advice if I can use the term that Allah subhanho wa Taala first gave to llamada Li Salaam and to all of us, which is unusual Lila be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala general. So that is where we began and we spent

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

several classes on that, on trying to understand the meaning of it and trying to understand what is it that we should do when we are being thankful to Allah subhanaw taala I remind myself a new let us continuously monitor our own actions continuously monitor our own changes in our lives. continuously monitor what we are doing with what we have already learned before we go and learn anything new

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

Now we come to the

00:05:04--> 00:05:14

the first piece of advice that model Islam give to someone. And as you can imagine that first piece of advice has to do with the one single

00:05:16--> 00:05:48

the most important element of Islam which is a turret, which is the unity of Allah subhanho wa Taala danijela in worship, and in seeking of health, where lavalas Allah Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this and the earth is our will emanation regime with God lokmanya Livni he well who is oh yeah when a la to Shrek villa in nasura. colossal mo Nazim. Now think about this.

00:05:49--> 00:06:01

Right will Karima so beautiful. Where look Marley salami saying to the last round that I said and remember when LACMA said to his son, when he was advising him

00:06:02--> 00:06:18

or my son do not join in worship anyone else with a lot do not join in worship others with Allah. Verily joining others in worship with Allah is a great zulum It is a great wrongdoing.

00:06:20--> 00:07:09

Now if there is one thing that differentiates Islam from the rest of the world religions, it is started. It is pure monotheism, the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone without any partners in his power and his majesty in his glory in His magnificence in his ability to do and undo things in his ability to give life and death in the in his ability to give prominence and to take it away in his ability to give his which is prestige and power and to take it away. Allah subhanaw taala said how old will he be in us a Tong? rajim Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim Colella, Houma mollycoddle molk total mortal karma comma Tasha

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

Tasha

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

Tasha to the Luma

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

vehicle

00:07:23--> 00:07:33

in Kala coalition Shea the two Lidl a loving river to Legion,

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

la hora de manera muy,

00:07:40--> 00:07:44

muy tamina Hi, Waterloo coma.

00:07:50--> 00:08:14

Ultra monitor and is beautiful. from Surah lallybroch Allah subhanaw taala in this entire, in these two ayat, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned only what Allah does only things about Alas, power, by inference, these things also describe Allah subhanaw taala His glory and matches to what Allah is specifically mentioning his power what he has the ability to do.

00:08:15--> 00:08:28

And the last mantle is saying that say that my rub is the owner, Padilla mmamoloko milk, my Rob is the owner, your Rob is the owner

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

of everything.

00:08:31--> 00:09:04

Malika milk, what is the mole case everything. Milk is not only this milk is whatever Allah subhanaw taala created. So Allah is the owner of all of that total more common Tasha and he gives from that, to whoever he likes, what turns your welcoming man, Tasha. And he takes it away from whoever he likes. Just think about that the biggest struggle in this life, right people, people fight wars, people do all kinds of things. Ultimately, what do people want? Do they want money?

00:09:06--> 00:09:27

Do they want to have pleasure? These are all side things. Nobody is doing it for the money. They're doing it ultimately for power. Because if I have power, I can automatically get money for higher power I can do whatever I like, which means I get pleasure in my life. If I whatever success I want, I can get it as long as I have power and for power people are willing to do anything

00:09:29--> 00:09:36

for power people. May Allah protect us for power, people are even willing to sell their souls.

00:09:37--> 00:09:43

This is where Islam comes in and says this is not the right thing to do. Islam says Look, do not sell your soul do not

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

make a bargain which is a losing bargain. What's a losing losing bargain is something where you are giving away something valuable for something which has little value. For example, if you take you know something

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

Rate value. And in exchange for that you get something which has no value, then it's, it's a bad bargain. So Islam is saying do not do these bad bargains?

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

And what is the bad bargain in Islam? What is the ultimate bad bad bargain? The ultimate bargain is to get something in this life, which, first of all is my duty? First of all, it is limited. And secondly, we have to leave it.

00:10:23--> 00:10:38

And then in in exchange for that, what am I What am I giving up, I'm giving up something which is lamotta, which is very vital, which is beyond description, which is, which has no limit which has, which is permanent forever.

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

I don't have to give it away.

00:10:43--> 00:10:47

I am taking a piece for example, what do we fight for in this world?

00:10:48--> 00:10:52

One of the things we fight for in this world is land. Right? Everybody's fighting for land.

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

Whether it is countries, whether it is

00:10:56--> 00:11:42

you know, small areas, in most cases is not it's not countries and so on. In most cases, it is one piece of property, one apartment, or one part of a house, I know I know, families, brothers were fought. And in the as a result of the fight, there was one house as a result of the fight, they put a wall through the center of the house. So this wall now is through your living room into your dining room. It has bisected and divided the house. And on one side lives one brother on the other side lives other brother. And since it's an ancestral property, more than likely these two brothers literally grew up in that same house. And they grew up when in the house, which was one. And they

00:11:42--> 00:11:56

used to play and go from this room to that room and running and so on and so forth. Today, when that house came into their custody, what do they do? They restrict their own movement, they put a wall through the house, who does it affect me? Who does it affect?

00:11:57--> 00:12:04

Somebody a guest coming to this part of the house to the left side of the house, he does not even know that is the right side of the house as far as he's concerned this house?

00:12:05--> 00:12:44

Who knows that there is another side to the house, the owner of the house? And who is the owner of the house? Who put a wall through the middle of the house? And the same thing on the other side? Now tell me how stupid is that. And for that, what have they done, they have broken a relationship of their home, they have broken relationship with Allah subhanaw taala created a relationship of their blood of their bloodline, which is their own personal brotherhood, their relationship as siblings, they broke that relationship. They incurred the anger of Allah subhanaw taala. And they put a wall through the middle of the house, because they couldn't see eye to eye on the division of the

00:12:44--> 00:13:24

property which was decreed by a loss rattle anyway, this is what we fight for. And tell me so you got it. Right. Let's take the same case. I mean, it's a hypothetical case this case, which is to say that fine, you could not instead of putting a wall through the middle of the house, maybe you got the whole house. So your brother you deprived him of his of his share your sister, you deprived her of her, Sharon, let me ask you this question. How many of us give shares to our sisters in an inherited property? This is one of the big problems of the Muslim people that they do not they deprive the steal from their own sisters, that deprive their sisters of their share, in inherited

00:13:24--> 00:13:31

ancestral property, believe me, you will answer to a loss of anoter on the on the Day of Judgment, that sister of yours is going to take it out from you.

00:13:33--> 00:13:43

She's going to take it from you now, in in exchange for this small piece of property in this dunya What did you give up?

00:13:44--> 00:14:25

You know, I really want to you know, I'm setting this beautiful heavies, that the last person to do to come out of out of jahannam will be somebody who was put there he was a Muslim, but he was put there for whatever actions he had done, because he had to go through the punishment in order to prove purify him. And so, he was put in jahannam and eventually by the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala he is brought out and nevertheless Adam said that when he is brought out he is in front of the throne of Allah subhanaw taala he is completely burnt to a cinder is like like a little black piece. Right?

00:14:26--> 00:14:39

Which is like completely totally burnt like a like a like a piece of coal. With like that and by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala he gets live and he comes alive. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says to him,

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

now I forgiven you, so go to Jenna.

00:14:44--> 00:14:52

So he's doubled and he's completely you know, astonished. The Union burning in hell fire me what to expect. So the man is looking nice and gentle.

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

He says yeah.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

He says I'm the last person out of jail.

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

Hanim all the people who are destined for gender have already gone into gentlemen. And I don't know why I mean, you know from the first man to the last first person to the last person is millions, billions, trillions of people have got is there space in the agenda for me? Is there space on the agenda, just imagine think about this dunia think about his world. Today we have a population

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

we say which is

00:15:26--> 00:15:29

which is 7 billion or something right totally is.

00:15:30--> 00:16:18

Supposing I'm not talking about the population of all the creatures, please understand this and only talking about the human population. I'm not talking about all the population of all the mammals and all the reptiles and all the birds and amphibians and whatnot. On fish. I'm talking about only human beings, if everyone who was alive from Adam alayhis, salam to the last person, whoever that individual, man or woman is going to be if all of them. Allah subhanaw taala brings to life and populates the earth today as I am speaking, what do you think will happen to this world? What do you think will happen to this world? Will they be pleased to live? Will they be pleased to stand even? I

00:16:18--> 00:17:01

don't know whether we food to eat, or will we be eating? You know, the leaves of a tree like this? What what what do you think will happen? If all of these people, so now this man is saying that? So obviously he's a human being? I mean, he that's as much as he can think. Because that's as much as you and I can think. So he said, Yeah, I mean, isn't this Jenna full? So Allah subhanaw taala says, I'm talking about what I'm talking about. What are you giving up when you do something in this life? Which jeopardizes your agenda? What is it what is it that you are really giving up? So today, right by say, you know, in this fight for property, I'm giving up this house or piece of our house is not

00:17:01--> 00:17:06

a whole house, because what else you wouldn't have got anyways, pizza, I'm giving up this piece of this house.

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

And I'm not give it up, you know, this is my right and I must get it.

00:17:12--> 00:17:40

And you say, Well, you know, in the process, the way you're going about that, you are likely to end up losing gender. And that is now not in your mind is there you know, that's pie in the sky, you know, is not real to me. Your swag, you've swallowed the property of your sister. And if I say to you that regurgitates take it out, put it out from inside, where you kept it, and give it to her, because if you don't give it to her, now, she is going to catch your neck on the Delta, then what?

00:17:41--> 00:18:22

You're depriving your wife off her. Right? What is her right? And you say, and we tell you don't do that do not include our woman do not take away her right? Do not take away our dignity. Don't insult, give her what is due to her. And you don't want to do that. Well, you know what you're buying, you're doing, you're doing this deal, believe me, every action we do is a deal. Think about it like that every single action we do is a deal, you're giving something to get something you're giving something to get something What are you giving What are you getting, if what you are giving is of low value in what you are getting is of high value, you are a brilliant businessman, you are a

00:18:22--> 00:19:10

brilliant dealmaker, and you will do very well on the Day of Judgment, on the other hand, it is the opposite what you are giving is of high value and what you are getting is of low value, then you are a fool. So now in this particular case, you have given up the agenda. So this man who's comes out Allah subhanaw taala says to him, tell me how about this, that I if I give you our agenda, which is if I give you this paradise for you this this property and that's for your that's your that is yours forever, if I give that to you, and the extent of that is 10 times the earth that you left and came here 10 times and 10 times what does it mean only in extent no 10 times means 10 times whatever the

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

earth contains all the wealth of the earth, all the beauty of the earth, whatever the earth contains 10 times

00:19:20--> 00:19:29

both in size as well as in quality as well as in contracts. So when I say if I give you something which is 10 times then

00:19:30--> 00:19:33

what will you say? The man says Allah you are

00:19:35--> 00:19:40

a poor creature. Yeah, I am your cameo creature. I'm a poor creature. Yeah, Allah, you're making fun of me.

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

You're mocking me.

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

And as Martin says, No, this is I'm asking you this question. What do you say? He said, What is that?

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

What can I say? 10 times

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

and let's just go that is what that is. What is the ticket?

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

Remember who is this being given to the last person

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

So out of janome so this is the minimum that

00:20:03--> 00:20:12

you can give and will give and Allah is incapable of Allah is incapable of being stingy Allah is not stingy he's not Bucky loves villa.

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

Now if you give that up and as a minimum we asked him Let me ask Allah for Jonathan

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

We ask Allah for the best what is the extent of that best believe me my my brain will burst I mean there's no way on earth that I or anybody can describe what is the best

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

beyond discussion,

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

we are discussing now

00:20:39--> 00:20:48

if someone is giving that up can be what in this life what in this life is what that

00:20:49--> 00:20:55

which man which woman which which money which car which aeroplane

00:20:56--> 00:21:07

government and and they're on which country? You know, what is it? I mean, what is it? That is worth giving up?

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

The agenda the last ones

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

miming What is?

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

Absolutely nothing, right? Absolutely nothing, simply cannot be.

00:21:23--> 00:21:33

And that is the point. The point is that Allah subhanaw taala is the monocle milk. And Allah said, I will give it to you I want and I take it. I take it away from from Toy world.

00:21:35--> 00:21:53

And the rest of the day, I'm not doing any of this. I hear you saying that. The point here is that this is Allah subhanaw taala General, and the one who joins partners in worship with him. geladeira is giving up that Jana, for whatever he thinks he's getting in this life.

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

I mean, the person who's joining partners with Allah is doing it because he thinks he's getting something in life, right?

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

Whoever that partner might be.

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

Believe me, it's not just a matter of worshipping idols made of stone or wood or something. No.

00:22:11--> 00:22:29

Even the people who worship the idols, because some of them they do it but they they don't even know what they're so ignorant. They do not even know what they're doing. But those who are doing them and I've had this conversation with many of my, many of my Hindu friends, I say no, why do you worship idols of store? Yes, no, we don't worship the head, that we do not worship dead.

00:22:30--> 00:22:39

This is a mistaken opinion of you. people blame us for nothing. We are not worshiping that we are worshiping the Deity which that idol represents.

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

Now my point is, what's the difference?

00:22:45--> 00:22:51

Because your idol is created with your hand and the data is created in your mind.

00:22:52--> 00:22:57

Does that data actually exist? Did that data create the earth?

00:22:59--> 00:23:08

Take this take this, this tree, take this take this branch, right ask this branch, who created you as this branch who created you

00:23:12--> 00:23:14

look at yourself in the mirror and say who created

00:23:19--> 00:23:31

me even the people who are worshipping these deities I have never had any one of them saying that, you know, Rama created me or Krishna created me or Jesus created me.

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

Neither did not create you.

00:23:35--> 00:23:36

Why was wondering?

00:23:38--> 00:23:39

Why are you worshiping?

00:23:44--> 00:24:01

Just as this is the whole point of it. The whole point of the is understand is one fact which is that we worship Allah because Allah exists. We worship Allah because Allah subhanho wa Taala created the heavens and the earth. We worship Allah Subhana Allah because Allah subhanaw taala told us to worship Him and nobody else.

00:24:03--> 00:24:10

And if we don't do that, then we are doing zone which in this in the eyes of laquan

00:24:11--> 00:24:32

Nepali Salaam said to him in Russia, aka zone one, as he said, verily and truly schilke which is joining partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala his worship or in seeking help, or in ascribing anything to him as the prime mover, the door, the file hierarchy.

00:24:34--> 00:24:49

This is your open ship. And mine is me saying to Zan that this is the worst of Operation zulum is oppression is a particular it's not just wrongdoing. mela mela protect our translators.

00:24:50--> 00:24:54

It's just it's not just wrongdoing. It's a particular kind of wrongdoing.

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

And that is

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

true

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

oppress, to not give something what is do to it or to take away from something what was duty

00:25:13--> 00:25:34

to take away the right of somebody or something. This is all. And shake is the worst of it. It is the biggest of Zalman azeem, the biggest of zalm because the slave is attempting to take away the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala that only he should be worshipped without any partners.

00:25:36--> 00:25:48

And Allah subhanaw taala saying that this is worse, not that the slave can take it away the problem that the thing to understand here very clearly is allies are asking you asking you to do this because he needs to know

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

whether you acknowledge it or not.

00:25:52--> 00:26:02

What exists exists. Gravity exists, whether we acknowledge it or not. That's why you always fall down, you don't fall up.

00:26:05--> 00:26:08

If you take a leap from the 20th floor, where will you go to the moon

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

you will come down.

00:26:14--> 00:26:17

And when you hit the parking lot, you will have a concrete experience.

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

Right? You will meet the concrete

00:26:23--> 00:26:30

What do you say no, no, I never believed in gravity. You know, gravity does not exist yard is nonsense. There's all these it's one of these conspiracy theories.

00:26:31--> 00:26:35

People want us to believe in Gravity because they're making money out of it.

00:26:37--> 00:26:45

Because they want to sell they want to sell parachutes right here this parachute business people running the world. And they want us to believe in Gravity because otherwise, who's gonna buy a parachute?

00:26:48--> 00:26:48

Does it change anything?

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

Does it change anything?

00:26:52--> 00:26:58

So what's to be done, you don't want to believe in Gravity, or it so take a leap, you will find out.

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

I don't need to convince you. I don't need to waste my time. I don't need to waste your time you're not gonna listen anyway. So take a leap. And you will discover the problem is when you discover it will be too late.

00:27:11--> 00:27:17

If you jumped on the 20th floor and you hit the concrete, there is no question of saying I don't know what I was wrong.

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

So now let me you know, dust my clothes off and then I'm

00:27:23--> 00:27:26

I start believing I started believing in gravity.

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

There's no chance

00:27:29--> 00:27:30

your history.

00:27:31--> 00:27:34

If you do not believe in Gravity, you become history.

00:27:37--> 00:27:42

Here, let me jokes about the point the point I'm making is that this is the reality of the

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

of the

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

truth of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:27:48--> 00:27:53

reality is that which does not depend on belief. I coined this,

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

this this report,

00:27:56--> 00:27:59

many, many years ago when this concept, you know,

00:28:01--> 00:28:10

when I was able to conceptualize this in this way, and I said that reality is that which does not depend on belief. It doesn't matter what you believe.

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

It does not matter.

00:28:15--> 00:28:21

You it is a strange thing. You know, it doesn't matter whether I believe in Allah No, no, it doesn't matter. It does not matter to Allah.

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

It matters to you.

00:28:24--> 00:28:34

It matters a great deal to you because if you do not believe in Allah, and if you want to join partners with Allah and remember that partner can be anybody or anything.

00:28:36--> 00:28:46

The bar is not necessarily only a Hindu god or, or something from some other religion. There are Muslims who join partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:28:48--> 00:28:55

who join their own our own great scholars, our own side the Sahaba for Sooners and sell them.

00:28:56--> 00:28:58

The family of personas are seldom.

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

There are some who join Rasulullah saw himself. Now the will remember,

00:29:06--> 00:29:11

if you do that, you know who will be the witness against you on the Day of Judgment.

00:29:12--> 00:29:20

It will be the one that you joined with Allah. Allah told us this about Israeli Solomon so the leader

00:29:21--> 00:29:35

who will be the person who will denounce those who called him Son of God, who will be the person who will denounce those who joined him in partnership with Allah and said that Jesus is God.

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

Is Jesus Himself is Islam

00:29:40--> 00:29:42

is Ali Salaam, himself.

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

And so to Mother India,

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

Allah will ask him and of course Allah knows.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

Allah will ask him Did you tell the people to worship you and your mother instead of worshipping Allah and inshallah Salam will say Yara Malala mean you

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

You know what I said? And you know what I did? Because you are witness to that you are my witness?

00:30:08--> 00:30:15

And how could I have done or said something which was prohibited by, which was not the truth.

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

So those who join others

00:30:22--> 00:30:27

I'm deliberately not taking the names of different people. Because I don't want to offend you.

00:30:29--> 00:30:35

I don't want to offend you. So I don't want to take the names of the of the people that we normally join we meaning Muslims.

00:30:38--> 00:30:43

The people we ask, we call the person's name and we say, Mother, give me help, please help me.

00:30:45--> 00:31:28

I'm not taking the names. You know the names. I don't want to offend you. I want you to sit and think and ask yourself this question, that if this was the meaning of Islam, then why did Islam need to come? Because people were already worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala with partners? What did they What did the mushrikeen of the polytheists of Makkah What did they say to us all so solemn, when he brought the message of Islam where do you say to kulu La ilaha illAllah tuifly. who say, eyeshadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, say that I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah and become successful. Sasha Muhammad Rasul Allah, I bear witness that Rasulullah

00:31:28--> 00:31:44

sallallahu ala Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is the Messenger of Allah and the Last and Final messenger after whom there is no messenger. When he brought his message, what did it tell him? They said exactly the same thing. They said, No, no, no, we are. We don't worship these idols.

00:31:45--> 00:31:50

We worship Allah and is to call Allah Allah. Allah in their Pantheon was had got

00:31:51--> 00:31:57

his no we weren't we he said, we only these will take us close to him vasta

00:31:58--> 00:32:18

they take us close to him. So today when you go and stand at the grave of somebody, and you say I am not worshiping the person in the grave, I'm not asking the person in the grave for a favor. I'm only making dua to the person of the grave and I'm asking the person of the grave to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala What is it you're doing? Tell me?

00:32:20--> 00:32:27

Allah subhanaw taala to do the only Allah said, Ask me a study of luck whom I will hear you I will give you

00:32:30--> 00:32:35

did Allah say so and so and tell that so and so to ask me because that so and so is my integrity della Sera

00:32:38--> 00:32:46

did Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam teach us to say that when you have worn something come to my cover come to my grave?

00:32:47--> 00:32:52

And ask me to ask Allah did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say this? Tell me?

00:32:55--> 00:33:14

Do you have the devil for this? Do you have proof of this? Did he say this? You know the I mean, I don't have this question. a stupid question. I'm asking you because I want you to think you know the answer to this question. Did Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam tell us to seek help from anyone other than Allah?

00:33:16--> 00:33:25

Asahi comes to mzr Salah I have a pen here. Please make dua for me. As soon as Sam says, Put your hand on the place where there is the pain.

00:33:28--> 00:33:42

And make this door. He says say Bismillah three times Bismillah Bismillah Bismillah. Then make the door. I will be la hora de minchah. Reema agito ha zero, say that seven times and then end with Bismillah Bismillah. R. Rahman.

00:33:44--> 00:34:07

And tell me this, if you came and asked him, What would he have love to happen? What would he really have been so happy if rasulillah salam had done it and that is if rasulillah salam had placed his own blessed hand on the Sahabi on his chest or wherever it was painting. And if he sallallahu Sallam had made this law, the savvy would have been so happy.

00:34:09--> 00:34:23

But why did not do it? We know how generous he was. He was teaching him. He was teaching he's he was teaching him that you want to ask Allah ask Allah my job as the Navy is to teach you how to ask.

00:34:24--> 00:34:51

It is not to ask on your behalf. I will ask on your behalf also, I mean, it's not as if the Navy never made the offer. He will he made all the time all the time made for people. But it was not as a as a means it was not as a method of making. He made to offer people because he wanted to make the offer people people given requested him in other cases he made by himself for example, all his doors of forgiveness are forward.

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

He's forgiven himself already allows forgiveness.

00:34:56--> 00:34:57

Forgiveness for his alma

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

did we ask him to make this work?

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

No,

00:35:02--> 00:35:09

I'm not talking I'm talking about the method of the method of asking from Allah subhanaw taala did rasulillah salam ever say

00:35:10--> 00:35:25

that asked through me? No. He said since Allah Salam on me before you make the sense a Latin Salam on me after you make the law, Allah, Allah will not reject your dua if it is bracketed by salat, and Salam on me on Salam.

00:35:27--> 00:35:28

But it is asked through me,

00:35:30--> 00:35:34

come to my grave and asked me to make dua for you, after I died.

00:35:36--> 00:35:50

So now if you do that, and Worse still, if you go to the grave of somebody else, whoever that person might be the answer, I'm not. I love all those who Allah loves. And Allah loves these people.

00:35:52--> 00:36:08

May Allah protect them from the ship that we do in their name. As I told you, they will be witnesses against those who come and check in their name. You don't want that. You do not want that person to be the one to denounce you before Allah.

00:36:13--> 00:36:14

I love all of them.

00:36:17--> 00:36:29

And that is why I'm saying do not do this zulum to them, do not do this injury to them, by calling on them instead of calling on Allah, by joining them as partners when you call an

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

inner circle Shaka Zalman as he

00:36:35--> 00:36:49

registers we do shall get another way. One is this which is in terms of the worship, and do is worship at Tao mahalo de la vida, Akuma Colorado syrup

00:36:50--> 00:36:55

is the brain it is the essence of a man of worshipping in other places and why is worship.

00:36:57--> 00:36:59

Another thing we do is

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

we have hopes,

00:37:04--> 00:37:18

whether it is hope for good, or whether it is fear of evil, fear of harm, we have these hopes from others than Allah subhanaw taala. Right, we have this fear of, of good and evil from others than others.

00:37:20--> 00:37:24

And who are those people? The economy, political leadership,

00:37:26--> 00:37:27

businesses,

00:37:30--> 00:37:31

right.

00:37:32--> 00:37:46

If my business shuts down, what will happen to me I will stop if the economy drops or drops, what will happen to me I will starve if this government comes to power, or if this government was already in but if they remain in power,

00:37:48--> 00:37:54

what will happen to me? Please understand only that which Allah has written for you will ever do nothing else.

00:37:55--> 00:38:09

And it is the son of Allah subhanaw taala that if Allah subhanaw taala wants to save somebody Allah does not change the conditions around that person. Allah removes them from those conditions completely unharmed and untouched.

00:38:11--> 00:38:18

I've given this example many times before Allah subhanaw taala did not put out the fire for primary Salah he ordered the fire

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

hola narew Cooney Bergen vasavada live right.

00:38:27--> 00:38:33

I lost around that I said we said to the virus over become a means of safety for Ibrahim Elise Allah.

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

Allah did not put the fire out

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

this is the Sonata Hello, today we are living in the middle of this other fire called COVID

00:38:45--> 00:39:05

and we are worried what will happen what we have nothing will happen. Please understand this thing have absolutely no fear what will happen is what Allah has already written for you. If it is written for you that you will die off COVID May Allah protect you and keep you safe inshallah, but if that is written for you remember that along with that is written that you will die. So he

00:39:06--> 00:39:11

you will die in the in the sight of Allah which means that you are going straight to them inshallah

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

all your sins forgiven

00:39:16--> 00:39:30

and you did not die before your time there is that you died exactly at the time that it was written for you. And if Allah decided to save you, then the COVID can continue you will be untouched

00:39:31--> 00:39:48

and not only will you be untouched, but if you take proper precautions which is why you know wear masks and and practice individual distance and wash your hands and so on. If you practice these things, if you don't insist on doing stupid things.

00:39:50--> 00:39:58

Then when you come out of this COVID whenever that is hale and hearty, you did not die, you will still get these tatters officially

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

there is another

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

I'm promised this with regard to pandemics and epidemics.

00:40:04--> 00:40:11

So whatever is whether it is written for you what we consider to be evil which is death, although death is not evil.

00:40:12--> 00:40:35

That is the most beautiful thing because death is where we meet Allah. And if we die within and then there is nothing better than that. The day a moment dies a moment or dies is the happiest day of their lives that is the day that they have been waiting for. Because they will meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and he will greet them and he will reward them. What is bad about that?

00:40:36--> 00:40:45

There is the most beautiful thing for people who are left behind Yes, there is bereavement Yes, there is the pain of party Yes, you are sad and of course it's completely understandable.

00:40:46--> 00:40:54

But that does not mean that you malign death and that you think that death is a terrible horrible thing and evil No.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

All of these are the

00:40:58--> 00:41:02

the beliefs and superstitions of those who do not know understand

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

don't reduce yourself to that level you know Allah

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

should there not be a difference between you and other people

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

in the circle as soon as you

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

please, I want to close with that here.

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

And of course inshallah the latter will continue

00:41:21--> 00:41:55

the lessons of from the life of the advice of mine, Sam. So, let us be very clear in our minds from today. First thing to do is after this lesson, examine your life. Examine your heart, examine your mind, examine your life, your actions, your speech and ensure that you do not join partners with Allah subhana wa tada in anything, not in worship, not in seeking help, not in hoping for good, not in fear of you.

00:41:56--> 00:41:57

Nothing, nothing.

00:41:58--> 00:42:03

Nothing can benefit and nothing can harm except by the will of Allah except Allah.

00:42:05--> 00:42:14

Nobody can give anything except Allah. Nobody can take away anything except Allah. Total monka monka lattanzio among coming man, Tasha. Tasha

00:42:21--> 00:42:31

ask Allah to be pleased with you and never to be displeased. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to live on the head and to die on top and to be resurrected as Nova hidden before Allah subhanaw taala

00:42:32--> 00:42:46
