Sir, I don't have any he will not have enough ah Can I have a camera fever? Yeah.
Cool kulu own at sadita Kumara Malika well
are many of our
we begin the name of Allah all praise and glory belongs. So we thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and displeasure and his forgiveness. And we turn into a love for protection from the evil whispers within us, and the consequences of our evil deeds for whomever and loved guides. No one can lead a stranger and whoever on laws,
leaves a straight unclean guide, and we testify and no one is worthy of our worship, and our absolute love and obedience and devotion but Allah alone, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and everything in them, and everything between them everything we know and everything we don't. And we bear witness, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed in truth. He was certainly His Prophet and his messenger
and the rest of his creation and the seal of His revelation to this world. And the most beloved of the slaves have a motto A lot of people have believed, keep your duty to Allah remain conscious of him have the taqwa of Allah, as best as you can muster with all that you have until the day that you meet him. So Pamela Todd, where there is nothing heavier in the scales of the servant of God, the servant of Allah than the duck walk on love and good character as our prophets.
And to begin in our last few marks together after welcome Eric, my brothers and sisters,
in our last jumar together, we said that our laws syllogism created every human being with a fifth thought
that this natural state of being and part of that's built off hard to work on our love gave every person is the ability to have partial discernment, at least a vague idea of right and wrong. And then he filled our lives.
He made our life to be a collection of opportunities, called fixin, called tests, to raise our degree, to increase us in our ability to know right and wrong, and in our ability to act on right and avoid What's wrong, to increase us basically, in clarity and in strength.
Or for every one of those opportunities that is missed every one of those opportunities that is presented to us in our lives, that we fail,
matters become blurrier for us, we become even more confused, we become even more doubtful about things, and we become even more weaker. And so he gave us an ability to know right and wrong. And said to us, if you invest in your event, you invest in your spirituality, you invest in your relationship with me.
And you restrain your desires, you'll have more and more clarity, you'll just keep accelerating on your way to me. And if you give into your desires, if you become driven by those desires, those desires will generate doubts. And we said that the golden rule you should come away with is that if you don't restrain them, and do what you know, is right, you'll start thinking that right is wrong, you'll start thinking that what you're doing is what's right. And so the shadow was the desires lead to sugar had to be said. And the clearest example of that was is what will happen at the end of time with the J. The people will be driven by their desires because they didn't prepare adequately
there'll be a lack of Dean. There'll be no religious restraints on people and their desire for food and drink and comfort will confuse them regarding an agenda and many people fall for him thinking he's got
our profits of a Lavoie to sell them now from today's who told us that this is what happened with the previous nations and so don't let it happen with you. That desires generated doubts. They took the lesser offer of this material world the immediate satisfaction at the expense of their Dean, and they thought it was alright after a while
one of our wedding funkita
Yeah, for Luna, Athena waiuku, the SEO formula.
Generations came later after the first generation that received the book that inherited the book, they didn't invest in sacrifice, or they just inherited it. They took it for granted. They took it license. And so they kept accepting the lower offer, the worldly desires, the world, the opportunities, not the opportunities of the lower offer. And they kept saying it's fine. It's fine. It's fine. So they started actually believing it was fine. Why up una falana. And they said, We will be forgiven
until they got to a point of no return. You know, a lot so just describes the same people
in Sudan, Iran, who disbelieved in God, and still thought that was fine.
In Latina Avenue, through my careful film as dagu front led to forbearance over two, he said, those that believe meaning at one point in time, and then they disbelief.
And then they increased in disbelief. You know who these are. These are the group from bento Asahi,
who disbelieved the first time by rejecting Jesus Christ, peace be upon him recently salatu salam, and they said, it's fine. We don't have to believe in him. No big deal. God will send us another one. he'll accept this from us. When his children
film is there to goof around, then they increase in disbelief by disbelieving
them again, the second disbelief, they kept going
led to cabella to bedroom their repentance will not be accepted. Because why it was not a real repentance, they got to a point of no return where they're not really going to genuinely come back anymore.
A third description of them also sort of Allium on a lot of articles, Alan said, and I'm sorry, he didn't even mean and kita de here who
haven't you seen a people who received a portion of the book this is a mirror image of what will happen in the later nations we are later nations they receive a book they receive some sort of Scripture they are called forth to the scripture to take it seriously to abide by it
to accept its judgments
coming home and then a group of them just walks away we don't have to follow that they were selective in their choosing
well whom already born and they were completely averse to it I'm not accepting this Why did this happen? It is the same equation we said before they were desires that led to doubts he said in the next is a kind of a went the other then it can be animal on land, MSN and now Illa Yeah, Mama do daddy. fee Dini? Hipmunk can we have?
That is because they said the fire will only touch us for a set number of days. Don't people say though, was very forgiving? Absolutely. He's unlimited in his mercy. But as we said before, he is not limited by His mercy. He is still the most justice of God. So long as you don't take it for granted. You don't take it as a given. They said we're God's children. We're God's favorites, no matter what. It'll be a slap on the wrist and let us go. That confusion the fire the fire can be dismissed like this. It can be they said the fire will only touch us for a certain number of days will not run home. How did they get so confused about such a clear concept? fee Dini he man can
McCann we have our own. And they were deceived regarding their religion, by what they use to forge. You know, when you say a lie so many times you actually start believing it. A lot of dentists say what deceived them about their religion, the lie that they themselves used to forge they wanted to give in to that desire of comfort, no big deal, that desire of ego, that we are the chosen people. And so they kept seeing this until they actually started believing it.
And it will recur in this room as well. You know, our profits on the level I think you're setting them set certain standards for this one. You can hardly attend the Muslim gathering today.
Except that unfortunately, someone's name will come up and someone will say something negative about a Muslim.
In the time of the province of Ontario, send them this was completely unheard of. In his generation. He would say you have said a statement about
About one wide set of another statement that she's short. Another wide statement that she was short. He said you have just said a statement low musi Jemima msgid true. If it were mixed with the water of the ocean that would have polluted it. Consider how Why do we consider backbiting
or salting. We spent an entire football but sought to fidget as if it's a small issue, and so the answer is just one generation after the Sahaba in necromunda, Luna, Luna Ahmed and he adapt to be our unique Amina Shara Kula narrow.
You're doing things and you're doing things that are lighter in your eyes thinner than your eye than a hair, but you can barely even notice that there's something wrong with it anymore. We used to consider it during the lifetime of the messenger our muscle, a muscle from one of the destructive sins.
And so the obligation of the Muslim again is to make sure he reverses the process. He trains himself retrains now yourself on checking your desires when coupled with the fear of Allah subhana wa tada the province of sin and he taught them this they didn't become like this overnight, they did become so have so much clarity, so much alertness, so much restraint overnight. You know, flexible fighting, there's a famous Hadith that you all know and Helen weigh in on her own vein.
That the head is clear in the Quran was clear, and between them are gray matters that most people don't know about. So just stay away from me unclear matters to protect your religion, and protect your honor your reputation. In another narration, tells you that one of the benefits of doing this, he said
he said fomento camellia shook COVID he mean that he
can and he must know if Moo hoo, utter stranger whom ever gives up what he suspects is sinful.
He will be even more abandoning, it'll be even easier for him now to give up the things that its sinfulness is certain is clear. See a lot out of his mercy He put between the head and the huruma buffer. That buffer is just
Everybody has a certain degree of gray areas in their life, a scholar would have a smaller degree a normal person like us would have a bigger degree, but there's gray areas no one knows everything. So these gray areas, they're not clearly how Allah says stay away from them so that when you slip, you'll fall into the green.
But when you're already in the suspicious area in the gray area and you slip wherever you go, you will fall into the huddle
you will fall into and so he would train them to stay away from these things. You know, he would even train these children to do this. We need to train our you know, it's a very effective way as a prelude. Just a disclaimer. It's a very effective way that we raise our children if we're going to only speak about the boundaries of a look at that and how ramen punishment and hellfire. This should never Trump or take a greater portion of our discussion with our children than loving Allah subhana wa gardens messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His mercy has proceeded his anger definitely, but still a part of that must be observing the boundaries. You don't sign a book like this. It is
narrated that the prophet SAW Selim would take
data out of his grandson's mouth and you know how difficult it is for a grandfather would take it out of his mouth and tell him if if we put it down, put it down? No good, no good. And he then he tells him Adam, Tana, don't you know, I want to make sure you know, and
Mohammed in what are the animals, that charity is not permissible to be consumed for Mohammed Ali salatu salam or the family of Mohammed they cannot consume from charity
and are not protected, protecting environments. And when he is the one asking people for charity, it would never be seen as ulterior motives and he's doing it for selfish reasons, because he's not allowed to benefit from it. He collects and distributes as a mob portion. That's it. And so he tells a little child, a child who it's not sinful for this child to do something. haram because it's not haram for a child is still not viable in the eyes of Allah training them on this to train. And Hasson himself says I memorize as a child, I memorize from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the following statement, this was recorded by the E book 11 IoT, leave the things you're
not sure about and just stick to the things you're sure about. This is training upon tuffa training upon being observant of a lot harder. Because that same hadebe By the way, that tells you the halaal is clear and her arm is clear and stay away from the gray areas. the very end of the head it says one and just to be multiple. There's a morsel of flesh in the body.
If it's healthy, everything will be healthy.
The relationship is that your state, the health of your heart is determined by your observance of those boundaries. And so when you observe them, you check your desires using using a healthy heart, a heart filled with blood, then that same heart will give you clarity is a great return on this, things will be clear for you. So the train yourself on it vitiated half the amount
he was when he was with a man riding on a journey. And the man said to him,
like thirst has killed me, I can't I'm thirsty. The Akash is killed, I have to drink.
And so we should have a mobile says to him, there's a well coming up.
meaning there's a well, down the road is a rest area. So they reach the world. And then before they drink from the well he tells him How about we push on to them? Let's not get off our horses. He says How about we wait till the next one? Let's wait till the next one. And then after they get to the second one, he tells him Let's wait till the next one.
And then he turns to him and tells him what he's doing. He says to him, how can that too far dunion? That's how you get past the design of this world. You just train yourself to resist a little bit. The things that are manageable resists. It'll make you feel better. It'll make you stronger, it'll give you more clarity. At the same time, you're checking your desires with tuffle practicing alright. Also, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught the world to check their doubts, to make sure doubts don't get in to keep them at the door. Keep them outside How?
With sound knowledge with pursuing knowledge.
You know, when you divorce science, for example, when you divorce science, from its creator, from Allah subhanho wa Taala. The mention of a mother is very destructive. I have a very good friend of mine. He said my
three or four year old child said to me, Baba, how does rain happen? Like how does rain comes down from the skies? He said I was just about to slip and tell him there's actually a water cycle and a certain temperature the water goes up and it condenses in the sky that it precipitates again in rain. And I said to myself, Why in the world would I say that? And I haven't really I caught myself when I said to him, rain is brought down by Allah.
Allah has angels. The head of them is Mika aid regarding rainfall and vegetation. And every raindrop I love determines where it will go and he sends angels to deliver it there. He said, my child has tons of time to learn about the mechanics of how it happens. But I need to remind check myself, have my children be able to repel these doubts that come later by the noblest of sciences, teaching them Allah through his book through his eyes through this universe? You know, our prophets told us that when a dark cloud would come, he would panic. And he said he'd become very distressed is a better word. And he would enter his house, his wife said, until the clouds pass, or until the clouds rain.
And then he would come out and explain why. And He will say to them, there are people who thought this that their clouds were bringing them rain, and their clouds carry the destruction of a love phenomenon. Oh, who would be that Oh God and God who had the audacity to live in a bedroom to be really comfy her other team to them.
When they the people of ad saw it, they said oh, we have grateful This is good.
When they saw it approaching their valleys, Allah Allah said rather it was what they were demanding, what they kept rushing, go ahead and bring the punishment go ahead and bring the punishment already. It was a wind integrals of painful tournament that destroyed everything in sight. And at the same time, our profits on the love on a loved one, it turned out to be a real rain cloud, he would come out and as a developer, the answers can never use.
Where telecom will be that will be where
the profits are used to love rate and become happy when it rains. And he would go out and wet his clothes, catch it with his clothing and say it just recently came from Allah. It is a friend it has just recently just fresh has been commanded by Allah to go relieve the people. It's one of the signs of His mercy. And so to check your doubts also with constantly pursuing this knowledge, you know how you feel when you come here words from the book of Allah,
or from the prophets of Allah, I didn't know send them these things are not given.
These things are not given.
I was on the verge of making today's holds but about someone who said to us that how can a love be more merciful than our mothers and at the same time, throw us in the fire. Because a mother would never throw her child in the fire is that he says, but I'd love to know some people in the fire. And perhaps that will be our for next week. But these things are our natural when your entire society is so critical of everything remotely religious or related to God, you need to counter that.
And, to be perfectly honest, we cannot afford to, to delay any longer even. I mean, we were born in a time or in a place or came to a country where people are so consumed by
the pfitzner of the quote unquote American Dream everyone dreams about being successful, and buying a certain kind of house that has a certain garden that has rivers or a swimming pool or something as if the description of gentlemen, interestingly, by the way, one of the critics, one of the criticisms made against Islam, they say the Quran is outdated, by the way the camera is. So the output is talking to people in the desert. That's why it tells them there's a garden, it says there's tension in the title and hub, there's rivers flowing beneath it, but what is every person's aspirations, going through college looking for a job, except the big house with nice green and a
Doesn't seem very outdated. That's still people's ambitions are what knows that people desire what brings them some sort of comfort.
And But anyway, the point here for today is that people come without
having their desires in check with tuffeau norther doubts in check with knowledge, and that is why so many confusions are essentially,
you know, the prophets of Allah told us say, Man, lay you better, what do you mean, hallelujah.
Money will be so available, the dream will be there. If you feel like it's within your grip, that people stop caring, our time will come when people will no longer care do their is their income from holiday is their consumption from holiday from the waffle or from the harem or from they couldn't care less. You know, the average person in United States
has $3,600 in credit card debt.
And most people in united states don't have credit card debt, which means 3600 is actually diluted, it's less than because you will divide by 300 million people. If you actually look at the people that have credit card debt, you're talking about 8000 $10,000 per person, a life they can't afford.
And then there's the desire for the house. And so they just jump on the conventional mortgage and they say, It's fine. It's no big deal. It's about all I can't live without it.
And then they get many times people they misunderstand that legal ruling in Islam, the legal maximum level up to be a lot. They always say, listen, when there's a necessity in Islam, the Haram becomes hella, there's no way around it and think about it. He says Think about it. I paid 15 $100 rent, or 12 $100 to rent
it for in a year. That means I'm spending $15,000 a year. That means in the past 20 years, I've spent $300,000 that I could have bought a house with how long do we save money? Some people that actually said this, to me, it's always money that was following the rules of Allah sometimes cost money following the rules of a law like on a hedge and spending on your parent, these things cost money, it costs money.
Where did he get this confusion from?
He thinks he has something going for it. He told himself a lie and believed it because the desire that he had initially,
by the way, that's rule don't want to be that necessities make the harm is true. If you're going to die, and the only thing there is pork, you eat enough pork to keep you alive.
And so it doesn't mean the Haram becomes valid. It means you're temporarily forgiven for participating in calm
until the alternative that you're looking for arises. People need to understand this. So when someone says I couldn't find the job, I'm gonna be thrown on the street. My kids are gonna go hungry. I have no alternative. No one's willing to loan me money. Can I work in a bar? That's my only option. We say yes, you can work in a bar.
But after your first day at work, you go back out and start applying for your license to drive people or to do with it. You keep doing that. You don't say I had no other choice. So I worked in a bar and I've been working in a bar for the past 15
Yours. This is the story that happens when you lose it. I had no other choice. I got stuck in this lifestyle. Who told you that was okay? It was your desires and it's alright It's alright. don't examine any further
a member of avant garde venues to say if you want to know if you were duped by the pfitzner or not, check if your opinions have changed after it happens like is is what you previously thought to be unacceptable now acceptable. That's how you know forgot to announce
that you didn't see it coming. It caught you off guard and the seller, there are the Muslims they used to say, when a fitna comes, it is only the trial, it only come it is only recognized by the people have knowledge. But the people of confusion, the people of ignorance, the people that are spiritually blind, they will notice it too. But after it's over, after it's said and done, it shoots somebody up and spit them out.
And where do they get this from? They get this from the story of kaboom. Among other things, of course, Allah azza wa jal says in the fall, they can call me Moosa forever Ali
qarun was a man from the people of Musa
and then he transgressed against him. He became so wealthy he became so powerful he began abusing his people.
Allah says were in effect, he had the keys to his treasures. Let her know when
it would weigh down a group of 10 men like imagine what this guy's treasure is looked like. So one of the richest men ever in human history. The treasure chest, it took 10 minutes to carry. So what is the treasure itself? Look, look?
Allah azzawajal says when he came out among the people at home, he Uffizi, and so many people are looking at him. They're looking at how many people are admiring him. Every time he walks, people are following them to pfitzner he speaks everyone's listening. He says a joke even was not funny. Everyone's gonna laugh. It's just it's a temptation. Wow, look at this guy.
Jr. Yeah, later, telenovela mabuchi apparel
that people that desire it's okay to desire but meaning they are bent on
accumulating everything, the desire of this world. Those who desire this world
said we wish we had with our own head. They didn't realize this was just just
indeed he has he certainly fortunate that he was so lucky. This
was the end of the story. And I'm skipping parts deliberately that I'll come back to now. For her Seffner, he will be daddy heal up he kept struggling in the earth like he owns it. So a low cost the earth to swallow him
whilst bahala Deena can know where can and will be MC fo Luna way can respond.
To those that wish they were in his shoes yesterday are saying, Man, it's as if Allah simply gives to whoever he wants of his slaves like it's just it's not about you, loving you or hating you. It's just he's just testing people in different ways. Way can never let you fully hold caffeine, caffeine, oh, man, it's as if the disbeliever will never succeed. You know, that means that means they weren't admiring his place while knowing he was in disbelief. Look at the confusion where it gets. I know he just believes in Allah. And this happens all the time. Don't we wear jerseys with people's names on them. And we're so proud of this person and defend them and arguments and they
don't believe in alarms messenger I
don't people admire certain actress, certain actor, certain athlete, whatever it is, and they don't believe in a muscle pattern.
This happens all the time. Look how relevant your ad is.
You we think don't we think that when someone has something it means that one loves them. Don't we only look What did I do wrong? What sin did I commit when something bad happens in our life as if that means Allah hates you? Like the car accident? What did I do wrong?
What I must have but so long as everything's going
Fine I'm making my money I'm changing my car every few years. I have lots of followers people that means don't we look at the world like that.
The I skipped
and this is the final point to close the book of Marcel just said when I was first admired before the fitna was over before he was swallowed up what pardon that Nina whoo to those that had knowledge and insights.
Those that capitalize on the opportunity for clarity and strength early on when it was still, there was still time.
Those that had insight knowledge.
They said to them, we will modify only when am and Mr. Amina
and they said What is wrong with you their award of Allah is so much better for those that believe in those who do good deeds when
no one has that meaning that insight, or no one has that meaning that reward and their connected insight to the reward, they lead one to another. No one has it except those who are patient upon this. Those who invest in their Eman. Those who invest in arounds, the things you once knew were wrong, will just be all right. until the end of time, this will replicate with the jab. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and this is one of the skerries a hadith about the gem without exception. He said if
any man will come out to a dejenne to face him
just to see his face like I know he's the jet I know he's an imposter. I know he's a liar. I believe in Allah. No one's gonna trick me. I'm fine. I'm bulletproof. In my email, fella, I'm sorry for an 11am nav.
He will not walk away from him except after believing in him.
Our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us and elsewhere, since a cool new feature that there will be trials as time progresses towards the length of time are up how far you mean apart in those who sit in it are better than those standing up in it duck. One minute measure one measure how
many special finance specialists who come and watch it I mean Herman j and l Moran and he's saying shelter yourself from these things, preempt them, do the acts of worship that will come back for you. You have when you have a balance with Allah, He said there will be trials, the one who sits is better than the one standard. Meaning hides from them. You don't just sit foot absolutely knock you out rush them and good deeds, but the one standing is better than the one walking towards it. And the one walking towards is better than the one rushing to it. Whoever goes out looking for it, it will come looking for him.
So shelter yourself shelter your families take this seriously, and it will be smooth sailing from there.
In namaha, Lucha de la Vina Amman ilustraciones the team Omar has promised that those who nurture their email those that any man he will glide them onto the straight path he will bring them straight to it and allow them to ride it. May Allah accelerate our path towards him towards near this to him read this clarity in our Deen on love, man. I mean, love, love.
