We begin the name of Allah All Praise and glory belong so But we thank him and we seek His help. And his guidance says pleasure and his forgiveness. And we turn to Allah for protection from the evil whispers within us and the consequences of our evil deeds for whoever Allah guides, no one can lead astray. And whoever Allah is diligent, it leaves a stray and unclean guide and we testify that no one is worthy of our worship, and our absolute love and obedience and devotion but Allah Allah, 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 of Allah to Allah O people of Eman over believe, keep your duty to Allah remain conscious of him. You have the Taqwa of Allah, as best as you can muster with all that you have until the day that you meet him, Subhan Allah to Allah. For there is nothing heavier in the skills of the servant of God, the servant of Allah, then the tough on love and good character as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
and to begin in our last Jumar, together after welcoming my brothers and sisters,
in our last Jumar together, we said that Allah Zilla, Jen created every human being with a fifth thought
that this natural state of being and part of that fifth part of what Allah 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 Phaeton fold 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 he's 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 Eman, 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 will start thinking that what you're doing is what's right. And so the shallots the desires lead to shoot will have 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 and they didn't prepare adequately there will be a lack of Dean, there will 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 is God.
Our prophets of Allah Allah he'll sell them now for today's call Tamar 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 deen and they thought it was all right after a while.
So hello from embody him Konftel Allah wonderful Kitab
yet for Luna araba, ADINA, why Apolo this formula.
Generations came later after the first generation that received the book that inherited the book, it invest in sacrifice for they just inherited it. They took it for granted. They took it light. And so they kept accepting the lower offer, the worldly desires, the worldly opportunities, not the opportunities of the the lower offer, and they kept saying it's fine, it's fine. It's fine, till they started actually believing it was fine way up who Lunas Falana and they said we will be forgiven
until they got to a point of no return. You know, Allah azza wa jal describes the same people.
In suits, Ali Imran who disbelieved in God, and still thought that was fine.
In Latina Avenue, so much fo filmers Dadoo Ghufron lend to Cabella Toba to he said, Those that believed meaning at one point in time, and then they disbelieved.
And then they increased in disbelief. You know who these are. These are the group from Benin Israeli,
who disbelieved the first time by rejecting Jesus Christ, peace be upon him recently salatu salam, and they said, it's fine. You don't have to believe in him. No big deal. That will send us another one. You'll accept this from us. When his children
film as they do coolfront Then they increased in disbelief by disbelieving in Muhammad, sal, Allahu Allah, He will send them again, the second disbelief, they kept going.
Lorenzo Cabella tilbyr, to whom 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 earlier Emraan Allah Tabarka what Alan said, and I'm sorry, Nina, who knows even minute pizza at Yahoo. masiva minute Kitab you the owner, he likes to jab in there he react Kuma VEDA, hopefully, very minimal humare alone. 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 through meta well left to minimum and then a group of them just walks away. We don't have to follow that. They were selective in their choosing.
What homework will go on and they were completely averse to it. I'm not accepting this. Why is this happening? 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 one to either then it can be a novel called length MSN and now Ilana Yemen argue that it was a wrong fee Dini hip, McHenry afterward.
That is because they said the Fire will only touch us for a set number of days. Don't people say though? Allah is very forgiving. Absolutely. He's unlimited and His mercy. But as we said before, he is not limited by His mercy. He's still the most justice apparently. 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 favourites no matter what. It'll be a slap on the wrist and he'll 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. Without rowhome How did they get so confused about such a clear concept? Fee Dini Americana,
we have a rule. And they were deceived regarding their religion, by what they used to forge. You know, when you say a lie so many times you actually started believing it. Allah Azza did the same, 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 format as well. You know, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set certain standards for this woman. You can hardly attend a Muslim gathering today.
Except that unfortunately, someone's name will come up and weep. Someone will say something negative about a Muslim.
In the time of the prophets of Allah, Allah who sent them this was completely unheard of. In his generation, he would say you have said a statement about
heard about one wife sent about another statement that she's short. Another wife statement that she was short. He said you have just said a statement low musi Jemima in battery the message is true. If it will mix with the water of the ocean, they would have polluted it. Consider how why do we consider backbiting
or assaulting faith you we spent the entire football bazzar to finish it as if it's a small issue. And as for the other answers, just one generation after the Sahaba in Nicoleta Fallujah, Alta Maroondah Ahmed, and here we are unique Camilla Shara Coonan,
Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi, salam, a movie cards, you're doing things this is likely because you're doing things that are lighter in your eyes thinner than your eye than a hair you can barely even notice that there's something wrong with it anymore. We used to consider it during the lifetime of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 unchecking your desires with Taqwa with the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala the province of solidity 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 don't second book it there's the famous Hadith that you all know and hallelujah you don't haram vain Aveda from a moon wish that we had that the hell is clear in the Haram was clear and between them are gray matters that most people don't know about. So just stay away from the 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 Alan Saltos he said Furman Tara camellia shook COVID He mean at Eton can even step Anna if Mugu
straining, whom ever gives up what he suspects is sinful.
He will be even more abandoning, it will be even easier for him now to give up the things that it sinfulness is certain is clear. See, oh out of His mercy He put between the halal and haram a 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 might doesn't have a bigger degree. But there's gray areas no one knows everything. So these gray areas, they're not clearly haram. Allah says stay away from them so that when you slip, you'll fall into the gray not fall into the haram. But when you're already in the suspicious area in the gray area and you slip wherever you go, you will fall into the Haram
you will fall into and so he would train them to stay away from these things. You know, he would even train his children to do this. We need to train our you know, it's a very effective way as a prelude 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 Allah had added haram and punishment and hellfire. This should never Trump or take a greater portion of our discussion with our children than loving Allah Subhana Allah his Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His mercy has preceded his anger definitely, but still a part of that must be observing the boundaries of Allah. You don't say in the book it
this. It is narrated that the Prophet SAW Selim would take
a date out of his grandson's mouth and you know how difficult this 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 LM Talla Don't you know, I want to make sure you know, and no solder pads and letter Haloti Mohammed in what are the animals, that charity is not permissible to be consumed for Muhammad Ali salatu salam or the family of Mohammed they cannot consume from charity.
And Allah protected him by this 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 Allah 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 hasn't 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 a woman that I met yet, ebook, Eli my diary, leave the
things you're not sure about. And just stick to the things you're sure about. This is training upon Taqwa training upon being observant of Allah at targets. Because that same Hadith by the way, that tells you the halal is clear and the Haram is clear and stay away from the gray areas. The very end of the Hadith says what, and are enough just to be multiple, there is 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 duck walk, then that same heart will give you clarity is a great return on this. Things will be clearer for you. So to train yourself on it, Mission Hatfield, along with the Greek imagine.
He was 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 and I have to drink.
And so we should have him Allah says to him, there's a well coming up.
mean he doesn't Well, down the road, there's a rest area. So they reach the well. And then before they drink from the well he tells him how about we push on to the 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 why he's doing this. He says to him, how can that do for dunya that's how you get past the desires of this world. You just train yourself to resist a little bit. The things that are manageable resist. 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 that I was going to get into 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 dimension of Allah. This is very destructive. I have 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 come 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. Then I said to myself, Why in the world do I say that? And I hadn't realized I caught myself and I said to him, rain is brought down by Allah.
Allah has angels. The head of them is mica II, regarding rainfall and vegetation. And every raindrop Allah 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 idea through this universe? You know, our Prophet SAW Selim told us that when a dark cloud would come, he would panic, at least a lot to say he would become very distressed is a better word. And he would enter his house, his wife said, until the cloud pass, or
until the cloud rains, and then he would come out and explain why. And he will say to them, there are people who thought this their clouds were bringing them rain, and their clouds carried the destruction of Allah phenomena. Oh, who would be that odd him God who had that little bell who will miss the agenda to be really comfy her other team to them Europa jmbm europea. When they the people of ad saw it, they said, Oh, we have rightful This is good.
When they saw it approaching their valleys, Allah says Allah says, 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 in it was a painful torment that destroyed everything in sight. And at the same time, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when it turned out to be a real rain cloud, he would come out and as a developer, whatever answers can maybe use Allah Allah, Allah here selenium. In other words, Allah who will be there will be he will follow in that paddy to ask him dropping. The Prophet SAW Selim used to love rate and become happy when it rates 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 has just recently just fresh it's been commanded by Allah to go relieve the people. It's one of the signs of His mercy.
And so to check your downs also, with constantly pursuing this knowledge, you know how you feel when you come here, whether it's from the book of Allah azza wa jal, or a Hadith from the prophets of Allah or I don't even know send them these things are not given.
These things are not given.
I was on the verge of making today's hold up about someone who said to us that how can Allah be more merciful than our mothers and at the same time, throw us in the fire, because a mother will never throw her child in the fire because the Hadith says, but Allah throw some people in the fire. And perhaps that will be our football for next week. But these things are, are 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 delay any longer either. 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 Quran is so the Al Quran 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 how 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 swimming pool?
Doesn't seem very outdated. That's still people's ambitions, Allah 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 the double Norther doubts in check with knowledge, and that is why so many confusions start settling.
You know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam told us say dlns is a man let you bear the Raju I mean, hallelujah Kulu Eman haram
money will be so available the dream will be this if you feel like it's within your grip that people stop caring or time will come when people will no longer care do their is their income from Khaled is their consumption from Khaled from the lawful or from the Haram 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 knighted 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 alright, I can't live without it.
And then they get confirmed many times people they misunderstand that legal ruling in Islam, the legal maximum up to be with Michael Roberts. They always say listen, when there's a necessity in Islam, the Haram becomes halal. There's no way around it and think about it. He says think about it, I pay $1,500 rent, or $1,200 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 It's haram to waste money. Some people have actually said this to me It's haram to waste money that was following the rules of Allah sometimes costs money following the rules of Allah like going ahead and spending on your parents. These things cost money, it costs money.
Where did you get this confusion from? You don't want to be remote. He thinks he has something going for him. He told himself a lie and believe that because the desire that he had initially,
by the way, that's rule and don't want to be robbed that necessities make the Haram calories true. If you're gonna 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 Khaled, it means you're temporarily forgiven for participating in Haram.
Until the halal alternative that you're looking for arises. People need to understand this. So when someone says I couldn't find a 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. I worked in a bar and I've been working in a bar for the past
in 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 I would have only had those who want all the money
111 Right that was salatu salam ala
ala you know, the hula, surely colorful eyeshadow and Mohammed Andromeda whenever you also was akin to the amount of avant the great companions to say if you want to know if you were duped by the fitna or not, check if your opinions have changed after it happens like is is what you previously thought to be unacceptable not be acceptable. That's how you know if it got to you or not.
That you didn't see it coming. It caught you off guard and the sell off there and 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 our room. Among other things. Of course, Allah azza wa jal says in the Congo, they can and will call me Musa forever Ali
karoun 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 we're in number 30 have the keys to his treasures. Let her know we're also letting go it would weigh down a group of 10 men like imagine what this guy's treasures looked like. It's one of the richest men ever in human history. The treasure chest it took 10 men to carry it. So what is the treasure itself look like?
Allah azza wa jal says when he came out among the people, that poem effiziente So many people looking at him, they're looking at how many people are admiring him? Every time he walks people are following Pfitzner he speaks everyone's listening. He says a joke even if it's not funny, everyone's gonna laugh It's just it's a temptation. Wow, look at this guy.
God and Athena do they do and and Hayato dunya? Yeah, later Lana. Mithila OTF our own inner Hulagu Helbling Are we the people that desire it's okay to desire but meaning they are bent on
accumulating everything they desire in this world. Those who desire this world
said we wish we had with our own head they didn't realize this just as
indeed he has he certainly fortunate enough to have that he was so lucky and
Allah so it says the end of the story and I'm skipping parts deliberately that I'll come back to now. For herself No biggie when we daddy heal up you get struggling in the earth like he owns it. So Allah was the earth to swallow.
Whilst bahala vena cava Nova can and will be MC oppo Luna Wait Can Allah Hi every single risk poly mania share women are a burden you have to do 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 Neville love you flee hold carefree, carefree room. Man, it's as if the disbeliever will never succeed. You know, that means that means they were admiring his place while knowing he was a disbelief. Look at the confusion where it gets. I know he this 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 in arguments and they don't believe in Allah and His messenger Allah Santosa Don't people admire certain actress, certain actors,
certain athlete whatever it is, and they don't believe in Allah Subhana Allah. This happens all the time. Look how relevant the Quran 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 scene 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 good
We find I'm making my money I'm changing my car every few years. I have lots of followers people that means that Allah loves me. Don't we look at the world like that?
The I skipped
and this is the final point to close the football. Allah azza wa jal said when the cartoon was first admired before the fitna was over before he was swallowed up, were caught in the Nina Oh to the Rain Man, those that had knowledge and insights.
Those that capitalize on the opportunity for clarity and strength early on when he was still talking, there was still time.
Those that had insight knowledge.
They said to them way that consolable long if I only when M and M army Lasallian.
And they said what is wrong with you the reward of Allah is so much better for those that believe and those who do good deeds, whether you love or hate Assad, beluga normally has that meaning that insight, or no one has that meaning that reward and they're connected the insight to the reward elite one to another. No one has it except those who are patient upon this. Those who invest in their Elan, those who invest in or else the things you once knew were wrong. We'll just be alright. Until the end of time, this will replicate with it the jet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and this is one of these skerries a hadith about the gem without exception. He said I used to
love to Salah
and a man will come out to the jail 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 Eman fell I am sorry for Andrew 11am and
he will not walk away from him except after believing in Him.
Our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us Claudia elsewhere sets a cool new feature that there will be trials as time progresses towards the end of time and are up how far you mean I'll call him those who sit in it are better than those standing up in it duck will all be Mohammed Mashi will mercy for you minister Minister Sraffa leftist Sharif who sermon watch it I mean Herman J and L Murad and philosophy he said 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 of Allah He said there will be trials the one who sits is better than the one standard meaning heights from them you don't
just sit put absolutely not you out rush them with 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 hola hola ahead in Medina, Amman. It surrounds the team Allah has promised that those who nurture their Iman those that have Eman he will glide them onto the straight path he will bring them straight to it and allow him to ride it may Allah accelerate our path towards him so it's near and dear to him read this clarity it's in our DNA Allah Amin Allah muslim semitones event and we need on in ADS. Allah from the internet so look at someone's journey. We are having a lesser amount of Odeon above my jaw from Allah from Allah my job Alexei from nothing was empty visa Allah Allah from nothing gets you know for sure hit you know a lot enough with a cat you know
