now, he has a
lot of parts according
boo boo boo.
All praise and glory belongs to a lovely thank you we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness. And we seek protection with a law from the evil concept from the whispers of our souls and the evil which consequences into within our actions. For women roadmap guides, no one can lead us astray and remember, Allah chooses to leave a string no one can guide
and will justify that no one is worthy of our worship, our devotion, our absolute love and obedience of Allah alone, the Creator of the heavens and the earth without any partners. The Prophet Mohammed Salah Bhavani, who says it was a nice Prophet,
and the servant as messenger, and the best of his creation and the seal of His revelation to the last day of people in the amount of believers have the tough love. Keep your duty to Allah be conscious of Allah fear him in the manner that he deserves, and do not die exists in a state of complete and total surrender to a love a state of Islam.
After Welcome my brothers and sisters to the House of Lords. So again, we thank our last agenda for the blessing of Islam, and for the blessing of Ramadan, and for the blessing of Seattle expressing this opportunity to remember our reality and the reality of our purpose.
Perhaps of the greatest benefits of fest of soul, and at times the most often neglected, overlooked benefits of fasting is that moment of hunger
that we feel the day of fest.
It is a window of opportunity that you should take advantage of especially here as this first half of Ramadan winds down before you get accustomed to pass.
Because there is a great gateway there to perhaps your greatest accomplishment at heart, your greatest accomplishment in your spirituality, your greatest accomplishment in your relationship between you and Allah found in that hunger event bear.
Because when you feel that moment of hunger,
it should remind you of how weak you are as a human being, how fragile you are, how dependent you are. A few more hours of this all
right, that realization is worth the whole world that everything it is because that is what defines for you. What it means to be useful. It reminds you that you are asleep, you are dependent you are in need of food and drink, Rose you cannot continue
and also reminds you who a lot is because that is the one that does not need food or drink. Rather, he is the one that has no need and is dependent on nothing. rather he is the one that possesses for us all of our needs. So he is so much more different than us. He is the master he is the slave rightfully so, and our life and our livelihood is in his hands and therefore it is rightful a slave ourselves to Him and devote ourselves to Him and cast our hopes with me some kind of wonder if you see there's a very clear relationship when you read the book on law, social capital, between the need for food
or lack of and who it is that is deserving of being a god and who is in need of recognizing that he's in reality independent sleep
on a law that says one more follow up soon Jean now an insane laniado do not create the human or the jinn except to me in slave to me. That's who you are. That's your identity. He just
Find that by saying watching the next verse, Melody domina, who means resisting women read when you remove Why should they be enslaved to me, I don't need from them any provisions, I don't need for them to provide for me. And I don't need from them to feed me there is. Then he continues and says in law, her horizontal and bullet sequences rather than his own level is the provider, the bearer of great strength. So he has no need, and he is the provider of your needs. So it fixes the equation for you. Indeed, I am asleep, I am independent. I am the frail and the fragile and the needy
and elsewhere in the world, and I was so insistent on what he had, when he felt that he semi was he was, what was the one that you'll find the same concept? Tell them on?
Should I ever take other than Allah as my king and guardian? media right out of my mind that I would take open on was my king and my guardian, fall to the semi what he will all of them and he is the Originator of the heavens and the earth will you
on and he is the one that feeds but it's not fair.
It doesn't make sense. How can it be any other way? He's the only one that sounds fake. And he is the one that reads so how can I accept any other as my god?
And likewise elsewhere in the world? And when allonzo agenda was this proving that Jesus the son of Mary, Sally said I was a God. He proved it by virtue of the same fact that recently Sam and his mother were dependent on food they used to eat so how can they be God's mercy from pneumonia in Lao Tzu 100 min public?
can I find?
The Messiah the son of Mary Abbas's was both a messenger messengers came to pass before him too. And his mother was a vehicle moment of absolute conviction and certainty. They both use to eat food, he says, I
mean, that's the extent they are the greatest of human beings. Yes, definitely. But at the end of the day, they're human beings, why they use the food. Remember, our turning our attention to that isn't a comment from this. And he says, to Maya kulu mesh Ramadan Mati villasimius.
And then the Messiah is telling his life story to the Christians. Don't you know, that he grew up and after he breastfed he at any drain? And then there came after that? What must necessarily come? What must come up to food and drink bathroom? Right? He says, so he ate and he drained, and then they came with naturally had to come. Is this a god?
How can it be someone that eats and drinks and has to remove the wastes of his food and drink at the end of the process? How can that be a garden.
So in that moment, where you feel your hunger, grab that opportunity to realize who you are, and realize your loss of data is because there is no shorter route between you and Allah when you acknowledging that need of yours. I said that not
to say there is no path between a slave and a lot shorter than that if you are acknowledging this need
as no person has ever crossed his limits of this obeyed alone, nor has anyone ventured beyond that even in this open this belief that Allah except because this equation became blurry in his head of who Allah is, and who he really is.
As a martial artist, this can lead
to a war. And
indeed, the human being always crosses his limits when he sees that he has no more needs. When he sees that he's self sufficient. The moment he gets a little bit of ease in his life, he forgets things. And that's why the greatest crime of the disbeliever is that he refuses to stop and acknowledge and admit who Allah is, as he says, I'm okay with either one or the other one.
That's the reality of the disbeliever. He did not give our mob proper estimates.
He made himself comparable to a lot or meet a lot of comparable to the creation. He did not give a lot his proper distinction is proper greatness, as he said some sort of fluid manner can lead to an interview about what is with you, and you don't a lot proper grandeur to a love. Why do you refuse to recognize that as believers and he said to canon with Alan
Kibriya in order to
sell on eBay, for seven to
greatness is my cloak.
Pride is my garden. Whoever challenges me in either of these, I break it, I punish him.
So when the equation becomes clear, you become saved and you understand the identity. And it becomes simple and easy and natural and effortless, to be a slave of all love to fulfill your purpose. So take advantage of the moments of hunger in your fast and trying hard to transition yourself and Roma bond from considering the feast to considering a fast, we tasted thought every day try to face this reality itself. It has a beautiful taste behind it,
getting to know who you are getting to know who he is.
And by the way, everyone gets a voice.
It depends on when you get to know that determines whether you're seeing.
You see when the person is dying, he admits
when he's reading his last he comes to terms, as they say there are no atheists on on a sinking ship. When the ship is sinking. Everyone says Oh, god, oh, god, okay, I admit. But at that point, the realization is worthless.
Only realizing this reality before that point, saves you in this world when in the Hereafter, as a loss. So just mentioned sources, the ones who refuse to admit that Allah was great that he claimed greatness themselves. And they refuse to admit that our love was God, he called himself a god. When he was dying, he admitted.
And he records for us his statement and
listen to the statement. He says, I went to La Ilaha. In London, the minute he saw, I have believed that non is a God, none is worthy of worship, except the one whom the children of Israel have believed in, you can almost hear the arrogance dripping in his voice, even when he's dying. He doesn't even say that.
He says there's no enough except the one that the children of Israel, I believe that he doesn't want to attend his name.
He is forced to admit it, he doesn't even want to. So everyone will admit it at one point, but it's about winning. And that's why when he said that, the very next day versus what and
now the verses are what tells him now based on now, now you see when you were sinful before, and used to spread corruption in the earth.
And a person once he admits his need, and realizes this poverty and how fragile he is. That is how we become strong. And that is how he becomes rich. And these help fulfill his potential. And this is when the opportunity is finally open wide for him as one of the seller for us to see kenzi IZ, or Lena upcoding. My treasure chest is in my incompetence, meaning that I can't. That's how I tap into the true source of strength. Many people are let down in their life because they depend on themselves too much to realize who you are, is with a loss or just all of it.
As the symbol Bedouin error says, one out of four have been apologizer me, I have come to know, my Lord, by the way, my determination gets unraveled, you know, you're determined to do something, I'm going to choose this major, I'm going to take this job, I'm going to make this investment I'm going to marry this woman. And all of a sudden without an explanation or a reason that you can understand You are so bent on doing it, and then you just have no interest in it altogether. Once again, how
alaba zildjian owns you and the ones that are the viewers as well. The veteran I've come to know a lot by these events in my life, how even my heart switches in a way that I did. Problems couldn't explain. So that the menu see my treasure chest is in knowing that I can and my riches are knowing that I am poor I was in a factory once I admit that I am bored and I possess nothing for myself, not my well not my life, not my loved ones but my life is suffering straight. I don't own anything. That's my turn to a lot so it did for everything. And that's when you get it that's when the floodgates come. Everything is bent on acknowledging that neither of us
we don't stand in front of a lot of improperly installer, except because we don't know who Allah is. We're not reflecting and realize that we're standing in front of
We don't really internalize Our love is greater, right when we say
we don't feel that all in his presence as an
alien, it asked him why he said, Don't you know who I don't want to stand in front of understanding that new is what causes you to be comfortable.
The same reason we don't focus in solid, we don't know what a lot is we don't enjoy
as much until the students will even complain that I create my co teacher, and I can't find sweetness in my solid, I can't find sweetness in my presentation. I don't enjoy my thought, Oh, wait, if you will.
He said to him, I will give you a tip.
When you are reciting the poem, try to imagine that you are hearing it from him.
himself. He's doing recycling.
And he returned to him the next day. And he said, Yes, the matter is a little bit different.
He said to him now tonight, I imagine you're hearing it from gibreel
as his recycling.
So the next day he came and said, yes, this weakness was a little more known.
And he said, so now I want you to imagine as if you RGB lighting, he said, I'm hearing it from the Lord of mind himself, in your
reality. These are the words of love, the King of kings, the master of the cosmos, kind of go into it.
So once we realize that we are able to stand in prayer correctly, we're able to enjoy our association or their decision we hear otherwise, we speak to a lot in all honesty.
Be honest with each other.
We speak to Allah in a manner that we don't accept for our children to speak to us in
sipan, and it is perfect, glorified above imperfections, meaning perfect.
How you think simplistically, very oversimplified, what it means Thank you. If your child were to remind you, if you were to remind your child what you did for them, and they said,
you would consider that a mockery.
You would slap them or is punished. approval to slap
we see this in front of us.
normal when a man asked him give me an advice and all inclusive advice. He said fear on love above, allowing him to see you while you consider him the most unimportant of those that watch you mean if your kids are watching you change your actions and surveillance cameras do you change your action but one Allah is looking?
Nothing, no difference, then you must not know who he is.
Also, our ability to improve as believers and fish out the flaws from our lives and accept advice is based on authority or that we're very fluid creatures. We're filled with problems, we should listen to advice, right? Our problem we don't accept advice because we think too highly of ourselves Who are you to advise me will either lead another tequila of other tourists.
Right? I was when a when a person is told fear a lot is overtaken with pride. And you already heard the heated pride and in love so love is the only one that is rightfully proud. And he does not allow for anyone to share that quantity with him or claim the quality to himself. When he is told fear of money is overtaken with pride. And that drives him to the issue of the sin. So Hellfire will be afraid.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in a global calamity long mob and you're watching it.
For Hulu that would be
the most hated words in the sight of Allah is for a man to tell a man fear Allah and the man says back to him Worry about yourself and don't look at my flaws. Look at your floors, meaning minor nothing compared to yours.
Tell the people regardless of how high you became you would say advise me find out
what the illness man there is no good advice and there is no good enough person that was not listened to at least take into consideration check. Maybe it's true.
So much is dependent knowledge is dependent upon you knowing that you cannot get it to yourself as a last challenge the angel so that the angels would say so panna cotta in Valentine Allah Allah Allah, Glorified you are we have no knowledge except what You taught us in the can. You are the most knowing you are the most wise
Put us by our ways you know about yourself, you would just think you can have the keys in your hand and you'd be looking around for your keys.
Your mind is in the hands of Allah as your heart is. If he wishes he said it the right he says he wishes to dismiss it. he dismisses
your drool at times, you can't control that you find it coming down off your face. We're not for a while he would have been the laughingstock of the people. He allowed you to keep your drool in your mouth. And he let it go if you open the valve, a little defender saliva on your slumped a little bit and you couldn't find the napkin around? Where would you respect me that is for him to kind of hold on. So when the angel said you are the most stolen, you are the most wise only then only then did he say
when you admitted for all love you get towards this knowing who you are is the floodgates for everything. And that's why our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in either I should say. She says when the messenger of love becomes confused, it means when you can understand something the Messenger of Allah when you become confused about the matter he used to admit is needed See?
A lot more Vegeta latinoamerica ito is tasty, sweet words. He says Oh Allah, oh Lord of the angels, JP, Gabriel. And Mika eat and Michel sapin felt are similar to Oh, you start in the heavens and the earth from the very beginning originator, and even maybe your Shahada, oh, you who knows the seen and the unseen, like that with you, and
the caffeine via telephone, you are the one that decides it's been slaves in the matters over which they're confused the different II need enough attorney for female help to be given it, guide me to that which you cause the people to disagree over, as it says, How are they going to react to this agreement admitted and acknowledged or not rushed to a level of protection or not guide into that which you cause you're desperate for there to be a disagreement with by your provision in Nikita, demon Tasha.
Indeed, it's only you who guides whoever you want to the street.
So our salon is contingent upon knowing who we are allies, our existing advice and learnings bent on knowing what lies and who we are. And likewise, the victory of this owner is dependent on us knowing who we are and who we are.
It has become the norm that around the 17th 18th 16th perhaps the fields begin to speak about the battle and finish, because this is a victory that are not destined for the owner in this time.
Likewise, the conquest of Mecca, also happened on the 20th of October. And so many victories are not permitted for this owner. In this lesson one, perhaps of the reasons for that is because this is the month when the true believer gets even more humble, gets even more dependent upon his Lord clings on to him a little more correctly a little tighter.
As he says,
Indeed, you receive victory, and you are provided for by nothing else, then because of the leak among you.
By virtue of their prayers, and by virtue of their sincerity, a loss of innocence about the Battle of
love will be vented in one
hour giving you victory and victory when you were what you were very human. These are very small, very tiny, very weak, the better, the better, they had nothing. So the dependence upon a lot became
lawless. And the one battle that their numbers were adequate for the battle is the best that they lost because they thought their numbers were enough. So once you move away from this equation, you miss out on the support from above, while mcwhinney diagenetic can can open the eyes and remember that they
winning the battle of money when you were impressed by your numbers didn't benefit you in anything.
This must be remembered.
In these times when we see everywhere in the world,
the Muslims being broken, we have to remind one another not to set up ourselves for disappointment by expecting help from anyone, even if they want to help, they will not be able to help
out of the most beautiful lessons from the Battle of red that is that Allah sends down the angels. And then he says to the believers, when Matt Jonathan log in the bush Allah, I didn't send these believers down to give you victory. I sent them just to give you good news, to reassure you to keep your hearts firm. So you continue being close to a loved
one man not so in the law. And the victory is only from what he says. Because think about it 3000 or 5000 angels as the verses mentioned in bed,
one Angel destroyed all the people who were 3000 5000 angels coming down for battle development.
This was not predicted. This is just to reassure you, and make sure your heart doesn't even depend on the agents.
Victory is only from Allah, he says and Aziz and Hakeem, the one who is most mighty into that instance, and he is most wise he will only do it for those that deserve it.
As the person watches our brothers and sisters in a sham and now in reverse is being obliterated, while they have no means to shelter themselves nevertheless defend themselves.
A person finds hope in remembering that even after the time of the Sahaba
there were those that knew and acknowledge their need about love and depended on one on one. And
not just in time.
You needed to up who is known for retrieving images.
From the roost, the group was Chris Crusaders that have just ransack
The one who paved the way for so often these expeditions to liberate the mystery box off and bring peace to those lands was a name by the way, by a man by the name of zinc, right when he was titled nodine, the lights of the religion, he paved the way a great deal, he was the commander, but first off as Dean, and he did much by almost permission to set up for slack. And then what he was able to accomplish by almost permission, of the clearest qualities in these two men was them refusing to take credit for anything that happened. Nowadays, we're a little different. Everyone wants to take credit for everything, and everyone thinks something of themselves, and everyone wants to take a
selfie and boosted that there's something behind that it's very dangerous to want your picture to the outfit. If it gets out there. It's out there as a love the greatest sincerity to wanted. We spoke about this perhaps last month, humility, you know, when they used to say we will be victorious, we will be victorious. Our general is known as deep thinking, the life of their religion, when he will hear that he will be devastated, he would go and pray and rub his face in the dirt. He would make many suggestions at night. And he would say to our dean at Dino Dino will do doo doo doo doo for failure to be coulombic, who is known to be Who am I? The Dean is your dean, and
this army is your army.
So do my Lord, would it be fitting of your generosity.
And I'm the most beautiful story I've ever read in my life, about this concept of leaving it all to unlock, and in turn getting all the support from a lot of this very man. He used to pray the entire night and then massage it before the veterans and to be held accountable. And one night in the masjid he made to do and he said to a law surgeon
or a lot of
men no would be men, men who didn't have who is more of the doll is saying I'm worthless, who is the dog to be given victory? How would I eat anybody will have
So give victory to your servants against your enemies and do not deprive them because it exists in front of them. If we wanted to because of our motto, and then we lose because of me saying
so a lot so again because of his sincerity
He granted between because the one that wants fame erased in history, and the one that tries to hide from it. Allah insists that he be known. One of the scholars in his army saw that night
Dream when he saw the profits of a mechanic
and he said to him botel routine that you are lowered has heard that you have said, Who is the dog who is the dog to begin with Victor and tell him that the Crusaders have come off the tip of the northern tip of Egypt, they've crossed the water that to the region, and for him to take his army and beat them there, or else
they will have positioned they will have a strategic area to them. So the southern came and found him in the masjid. And he said to my soul, bla bla bla.
And he said to me, your Lord has heard you say, who is my mood, and I respect your mood or adult, who is my mood to be given victory.
And he said to you take your army and go north quickly.
To do multiple procedures and be there you have to meet them there. Of course, any general in their right mind is not going to build a tactical plan based on some guy who has a dream. So he wanted to make sure the dream was right. So he said, say the full dream.
So when he said so in the mail understood, he said, the prophets of Allah, Allah has heard usafl is the door
to be given victory. So he realized that this was truly an inspiration. And also, it is not just an empty dream. And he sent the army north in the morning, and a lot of them a pivotal victory that paved the way to securing that part of the world and then moving east later on, so as to return the lens of the Muslims to the Muslims, and they will never return the Muslims to Allah. May Allah make us of those whose hearts never cling to anyone but him and May Allah make us of those that never depend on anyone but him and never work for anyone between male MMA. So again, remove the pride and arrogance from our hearts and allow us to enjoy our fast and enjoy our thought May Allah allow this
month of Ramadan to depart except with all of our sins forgiven and our flaws removed and also having been transformed in a manner that would earn us pleasure as he looks down upon us above them. I mean,
