Come closer and shall I don't feel like sitting on the table

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

let's make it a family gathering halka

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

come closer inshallah come close

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

about use of Mateen on

00:01:19--> 00:01:20


00:01:31--> 00:01:32

I can see running away

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


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

I don't have to

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

put your back here

00:01:45--> 00:01:53

so that 100 Allah salatu salam ala Rasulillah mama Linda main founder out when finally Mount Olympus Anna was in that element Hamra Hemi.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

So, first I want to

00:01:59--> 00:02:06

tell you that I love you for the sake of Allah. And Allah is my witness. But I'm not just saying that Ikram knows that right?

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

I love you for the sake of Allah and this by itself. One Love for the sake of Allah is a brother.

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

You're comfortable.

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

without one.

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

This is a this is by itself is a brother. You know, Rasul Allah is seldom

00:02:30--> 00:03:11

when he named the seven people under the shade of Allah, when there is no shade except his shade. Two of these people one of these people, one of this group is one who love they met with each other for the sake of Allah and they departed for the sake of Allah Subhan Allah and how beautiful is that? That will that by itself will bring you under the shade of Allah when there's no shade except his shade. You see now maybe you don't feel the weight of this. But can you imagine when that when the on the Sun is one mile and it's so hot and everybody's drowning with their sweat? And then you'd be called by your name and the use of come under the shade of Allah dabit come under the shade Allah

00:03:11--> 00:03:34

Akbar. And then he said why? You know you because you love your brother only for the sake of Allah. So really when you tell somebody that you love them for the sake of Allah really mean it Allah he is a bad by itself. So inshallah Tada today very briefly, quick Hadith me and Dr. Ziad, we were coming back from Juma we were discussing and this hadith came to my mind I said, I want to share it with my my brothers and sisters.

00:03:36--> 00:03:43

Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this brief Hadith as we all know, Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with

00:03:44--> 00:03:49

Jo ma al Karim, Yanni precise speech, very few words, but you can

00:03:50--> 00:03:58

design your life with these few words Subhan Allah, this is one of the NAM that he was singled out was unique. Thoreau, Salah Salem.

00:03:59--> 00:04:07

So this hadith shows us that what are the three things that I need to survive?

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

And everything other than that is luxury.

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

There are three things he told us if you have them.

00:04:18--> 00:04:23

Not only you can survive, as if you have own the whole dunya

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

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

Okay, let's take them one by one.

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

eminently Serbia so he said to be

00:06:01--> 00:06:08

secure security and peace and safety is a NEMA that we take for granted

00:06:09--> 00:06:19

Subhan Allah Allah here when we don't have to do anything. Just go into news. Click the news for five minutes. You got a headache Hamdulillah I don't have TV for

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

seven was nine years.

00:06:25--> 00:06:53

So hamdulillah by me, and the only time I see the news on my app, and this five minutes, it gives me a headache Subhanallah killing here. Murder here. Explosion here I can sit out lover Subhanallah look just didn't have to go far. Look at our own brothers. You know, we heard about the explosion Pakistan few few days ago, right? Subhanallah people going to college, just normal, like our kids going to college same or anywhere anywhere in the world.

00:06:55--> 00:07:10

The net amount of peace that we have that I can like now let me give you an example make you live it who amongst us is sitting here and he's trembling. I don't know if I'm going to make it home because there is two, you know, two parties fighting like I remember in my when I was growing up in Beirut

00:07:13--> 00:07:35

I used to go to college, the College at the American University of Beirut. It was like maybe a half an hour from from my home. So can you imagine? And Beirut, you know it was Civil War. So I'm talking about was 9018 8085. Now because I came here at night, so on 8586 That was the use of college.

00:07:37--> 00:07:41

Every time I go to college, I say goodbye to my family every day.

00:07:44--> 00:08:03

Because next to my house, there used to be two groups. Every other day, they start fighting and when they fight I mean I'm talking fighting any crashing call fighting and killing each other and we go down to the shelters and everything is closed at any battle.

00:08:04--> 00:08:12

So my mother calls me tells me don't come Don't even think of coming. We are all under the shelter. So stay two three days outside the house.

00:08:14--> 00:08:35

And I used to go out this is exactly what I'm talking about. No safety, no security, your kids at home and you're worried because our neighborhood there is the breaking every single day there's drive by shooting so you're always worried who amongst us has gone through that? And and some of our countries without naming names.

00:08:36--> 00:08:46

You cannot go to the masjid a few times your name will be taken your picture would be right. Now we come here. Do you think this is allowed overseas?

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

Ask the Syrians

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

you can

00:08:52--> 00:09:02

you can the minute when I was in debate, the meditation finished Allah yaki on an official I'm gonna get genre are you hijo I'm gonna have you got to

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

finish second Masjid close.

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

Allah, when

00:09:10--> 00:09:20

would I dare sit down and give a halacha in any Muslim country? Who do you think you are? We have people from our people. They know.

00:09:21--> 00:09:27

They're told what to say on a piece of paper and if they go one word, Allah

00:09:28--> 00:09:35

Subhan Allah so this is the safety we Allah Allah Allah who had so blessed, so blessed when Dr.

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

Sabri who prays with a special every day

00:09:39--> 00:09:43

when he was this to show you Subhanallah he just came back from Jordan.

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

Jordan, Muslim country, right? How many people?

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

How many?

00:09:54--> 00:09:55


00:09:56--> 00:09:59

five in the masjid in Jordan. I was telling the brothers

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

If you do the proportion, the Muslims the number of Muslims

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

and you compare them to here.

00:10:08--> 00:10:40

When we have 200, that soldier or 250 here, that is equal to at least 10,000 in a Muslim country, right? At least, because here we have 200 from 500, maybe or 700, let's say over there, that is 550 1000. At least in every building has put 334 100 people in it. Five people. He stayed there for a week, five people, the Imam, his cousin, his brother, and his son

00:10:43--> 00:11:17

lives it's a mix we are laughing but it makes you cry on life. So what I'm saying is handler of the enemy and then my you know, when you have peace, when you have peace, it makes the Baghdad easy. Like you know, Hamdulillah you know, we could come to the masjid we pray we see each other we we get a like the doctor code that we got to boost charge for the week. And Hamdulillah I mean, I check up on my sisters check up on the sisters handler we sit in peace our kids are sitting with us. So you feel at ease. That is an am

00:11:18--> 00:11:28

Allah it's a great time. And we will never appreciate it until we we lose it. I can tell you give you a simple example I lived here. When I used to live in New York.

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

There was a town there's a masjid in it.

00:11:35--> 00:11:44

One of the very bad town very bad. Many drugs, you name it. Very one of the worst towns in Long Island.

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

One time they invited me to Azure to give a talk.

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

And face it was at four o'clock.

00:11:55--> 00:12:09

I was going I was the only one on the street. And you look left and right. And you see the people you know looking at you and you know there's groups at four o'clock in the morning groups smoking in this and bottles of alcohol. Yanni I told the chef's please

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

no more. Don't invite me.

00:12:18--> 00:12:18

00:12:20--> 00:12:36

So hamdulillah and we do not have that. So the first 1am in NP Saturday, you are peaceful in your with your home with your children. This is a great time. So we have the first one all of us to handle our Ben. Second one, my wife and fi just

00:12:39--> 00:12:42

00:12:44--> 00:12:50

Health is a crown on your head that only the sick person can see it.

00:12:51--> 00:12:58

When the sick person looks at you, it looks at USC as a kink. But you me complaining all the time.

00:13:00--> 00:13:09

A man came and said I'm the poorest man on earth. He was telling a guy I'm the poorest man on earth. I'm miserable and this and that. Give me just $5 Please, please, please.

00:13:10--> 00:13:15

So the man told him. You're the poorest man on earth. He said yes.

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

He said Would you give me your own for 50,000?

00:13:20--> 00:13:27

00:13:37--> 00:13:41

Sudo allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one of the DUA which we studied in the morning.

Snore normal. And by the way, it is Allah one. These are signs. When you're all of a sudden, you start needing glasses

00:19:23--> 00:19:32

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

When you get tired quickly as a message

00:19:38--> 00:19:39


00:19:40--> 00:19:41

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

So according to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I have 10

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

With maximum 20 years

00:20:02--> 00:20:11

because he said the age of my between 60 and 70 and very few go up above so I have 10 to 20

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

and more of a sudden the same range

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

How can I

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

waste that on Chorus

00:20:26--> 00:20:34

the bigger part is gone what's left? Right if you're above theory you're above theory the wrong part is gone.

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

you know you're healthy and you're walking and you're running and mashallah you can eat whatever you want and SubhanAllah. But maybe you have a leak on the roof.

00:21:05--> 00:21:12

He makes you forget or maybe you have a problem with your neighbor. He makes you forget all the NAM that you have all of them.

00:21:13--> 00:21:20

You lost your job for two weeks, or you lost a business deal. You're supposed to make 50,000 you made 20,000

00:21:21--> 00:21:30

You lost. He makes you forget that you can walk you could talk you have children, you have a wife, you have a house, all of this forgotten and you concentrate on that one problem.

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

00:21:35--> 00:21:38

failed the test. More often features

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

and the who go to yummy.

00:21:43--> 00:21:47

He has the supply the food for one day.

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

Open our fridges.

00:21:51--> 00:22:09

The food will fall. If you open the pantry in our houses, food will fall. And at the same time. We are all worried like today. If you go to New York now. Now now exactly now. There's nothing in the supermarket. I lived there for 26 years.

00:22:10--> 00:22:32

The minute they say it's no stone, Yola has if fellas, tomorrow's gonna be everybody's gonna be hungry and starving and dying. They go, they clean the shelves, no water, no milk, no, nothing every bread, forget about the bread, everything they buy. And then the guy on the TV say, we're very sorry.

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

The storm went wrong.

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

And they look, the food is going to expire.

00:22:40--> 00:22:57

So as soon as I said and said, if you have enough for one day, for one day, who amongst us really including myself, who amongst us for one day Subhan Allah we buy for a week or two weeks? And let me Subhanallah let me just pause for a second.

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

How much do we suffer on a daily basis, on a daily basis

00:23:06--> 00:23:12

not to have food for one day to, quote unquote, guarantee the future of our children.

00:23:17--> 00:23:19

We want to guarantee the future of our children, right?

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

I want to make sure the future is safe.

00:23:26--> 00:23:33

Well, my brother, my sister, the future of your children, is one of two either gender or not.

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

This is what you should be working on to guarantee not becoming a doctor and becoming a lawyer or becoming I want to guarantee that but guarantee. You heard me the other day. 27 years old.

00:23:48--> 00:23:51

And Richardson, a sister 27 finished med school,

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

from med school.

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

How heart attack to the graveyard.

00:23:59--> 00:24:14

That does not mean don't study No, no, no, be ambitious, study everything. But my young brothers and my sisters, Dean first. When you want to guarantee the future of your son, make sure he knows how to pray. Make sure he knows how to read the Quran. Make sure he has

00:24:16--> 00:24:26

good manners. This is the future of your son. This is the future of your daughter. What's the use of the Harvard and Yale and MIT graduate and does not pray? What's the use?

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

is one of the questions of the grave.

00:24:30--> 00:24:33

Where did you graduate from? Now?
