fusino See, I
yeah, you will love it
to the moon
a fever. Yeah, you will learn
we begin the name of Allah all praise and glory belongs to a mob. We thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness. And we asked about love to protect us in our lives in the journey of our guidance to protect us from evil whispers within ourselves and the awful consequences that would result of our misdeeds for whomever Allah does choose to guide. This is a great gift that no one can take away. No one can misguide that person ever, and a member of law syllogistic decides to leave a stream in his perfect knowledge in his perfect justice in his perfect fairness, then that person will remain a stray and none can muster guidance for such a person. And
then testify that no one is worthy of our worship, our absolute devotion, our absolute level, our absolute surrender to
our own without any partners, the true supreme King, that the Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah or an English and that was in truth, His Prophet and his servant and His Messenger.
Oh believers, oh, you have to believe the law says to you have this consciousness of Allah at all times, for your own good is not for his own good for your own betterment in this world and then in the Hereafter, for your immediate and for your eventual, for your interior and for your societies for your exterior, remain observant of all the love
and do not die except in that state of complete and total observance surrender to a lot of enlisted in majestic and Hi, after welcoming my brothers and sisters in house have a lot of soldiers we thank Allah for the blessing of Islam, and for the blessing of yo Jamaat this day when we were created and the day when we will be returned to our maker our rate for putting us in his house and allowing us to hear another reminder that inshallah model reactivate for us a speedy journey towards him towards his pleasure towards an opportunity to see his face to kind of more data. And we continue with our journey as we have become accustomed to with the study of the overview of morality. And in our last
week, in our last session, you spoke about tsunamis and how it discusses the value of justice and the importance of justice for the preservation for the the protection of any institution, any community, any establishment, whether it be family or society or nation.
And I pray that we have why not improve the buildings received some sort of determination from that from that reminder to make a change for the better to live with the power and in practice and not just go from Joomla to Joomla allowing the second reminder to wash away the first and not allowing us to live enjoying them what I pray that I love makes that a reality.
And so we continue with that trying to tap into the beauty of the Orion and we want to say hello to Malika and Amanda literally means the table
Or the dinner table or the supper table that people sit on to eat? why it is called that in a second. But the theme of sort of America, the theme of today's talk
is declared expressly stated in the very first words and sort of America. Yeah, you had an Athena ama, no, mo foo below Roku. Oh, you have believed, fulfill
the terms of your contracts, uphold your contracts. But what sort of tell man is going to do now it's going to widen your understanding of a contract. A contract is not just something you do between two partners in the business, not just in a sale transaction in the grocery or the supermarket. It is not just something between two parties of humanity, your contracts are all that you are bound to your contracts, your covenants, your promises, your deals, you must live up to them, because the word of the believer is worth more than 1000 oaths of someone that does not believe does not believe in Allah and in the last day, you feel bound to them without anyone else
needing to remind you that you are bound to them. And the greatest of those things that you are bound to has nothing to do with people at all sort of that Matt either reminds you that it is your contract with Allah. That's why the sooner is filled with discussion, on the meet out the contract the covenants, that when we saw he had with Allah, the very last nation before you that did not live up to their contracts.
And this meetup is the same as in effect, what it means to be firm on something right, a lot of selligent says whether you
no one will, by the way that our must bind meaning on the day of judgment when he snatches those deserving of tournament. So this is what you are bound to. And then sort of the method After establishing that it tells you elephant, we're going to start the surah I'm going to define what contracts are but you need to know this is no life matter, you must l foo fulfill them all, just as you heard in the suit, in our discussion of the law that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam completed, all of the Commandments were Ibrahim and led the WEF, Allah says in sort of a niche, Ibrahim, who fulfilled open ended, he fulfilled everything he sought to set up and now it is our turn to live up to that.
And then sooner than imagined it is something very interesting, in that it is filled with a discussion on who the other party in your contract is. And this is none other and no less than Allah Himself, it continues to repeat in that surah when he left he would do similar to what mavala condition in the same statement, recurring different wording, same concept. So it is beaten into you if you will, it is carved in your personality, that belonging to Allah is full control over the heavens and the earth, the verses and Allah is the Almighty, He is over all things capable. Why is that important? Because you know, when you have a deal with someone, if that someone has some sort
of need for you, or some sort of lack of control on you, he could forego
your breakage of the contract. So if you have a deal with your employer to start at night and end at five o'clock, and you keep showing up late he could put up with breaking you breaking your deal in the contract because he can't find the replacement right now. So a lot so again, when discussing the contract throughout the contract, he says But listen, I'm not like anybody else. I'm in full control. My treasure chests never deplete, they never empty. I am the old mighty if you turn your back you're easily replaceable, and that's why you find in Sullivan matita Yeah, I do.
Many of them in Command D for self esteem that will be only
a boon. Oh, you won't believe if you turn your backs. If you betrayed the contract of love will replace you with other people. But if you look a little closer to the eye, some of the scholars mentioned it says men, whichever one of the men could be used for singular turns his back for several factors a lot of work and bring about be opposed to hold people to replace you mean you turn away or bring the whole nation in your substitute to compensate for
You This is not difficult for our last panel. That concept helps you understand the necessity of giving this contract. It's too Right. It's too serious. And we have seen this in Islamic history time and time again, the issue of taking Islam this deal you have with a lot for granted as if I'm born Muslim, anti muslim, nothing is at stake. There is no threat. I'm never going to be harmed so long as I am upon Islam by terms of the contract of Islam, the one the Mongols came and they remove city after sitting with the Mongols, the Tuttle had done to the Muslim woman perhaps had never before or after been done to the woman, I don't think you expand now. Can you imagine that that of
stopping in Baghdad and slipping a million throws without guns and bombs, and then they'll move on to harbor forest. And they'll go and kill 700,000 there and then move on to another city and slipping 1.2 million like this over one city at a time, complete annihilation.
until it is reported that one of the Muslims approached a woman or a scholar, their reports are varied. I read one of them yesterday that they came and said if you are the people of God through the Muslims, then why does your God let us do this this with you? Half hour away with you. She says Don't you know that the shepherd when he wants to take care of the sheep, he keeps a dog with him. You are the dog that love unleashed to get get his flock back in order. And the amazing thing about that is what when they didn't keep their end of the contract. They were frightened, thinking they would almost be annihilated. And then many of them were replaced. After the long Gold's took over
the lens of Islam. Islam took over the hearts of the Mongols. They became the new woman. They replaced the woman they embraced Islam and became Muslim. So a lot of soldiers showed us in the priests in our own mind that we are replaceable, and then into the magic that tells us this is exactly what happened to the people before you don't take this lightly. And that's why the pseudo is called pseudo to imagine that the supper table or the dinner table what the Christians called The Last Supper. Yeah. A lot of selgin says it's called a power to you This is why the sutra is called the man when the howdy Yun which also have by the companions of Jesus, the son of Mary, when they
said yeah, he said pneumonia. Oh Jesus, the son of Mary,
having a stuffy Robert Lucas and university them Alena Mackey that Amina Salah is your Lord capable
of sending down for us a dinner from the heavens a dinner table I met him literally from the heavens.
He responded to them and said, why and when to fear Allah How can you request something like that to see a was ability you're doubting that he is the almighty fear of life you are believers. They said nobody do that cool, Amina una, we wish to just eat from it and our hearts to be reassured and to know for sure and confirm the channel, and that you were truthful to us and that we testify so that we can tell the world Yes, it's true Allah exists. Allah is the Almighty.
So at this point after a silence, and I'm wishing for these people to stay guided to stay Muslim, he makes an attempt and it says, Oh, look, can you sit down for us not? Can you the ability me? Would you send it down for us a man from the skies, to be a festival to culinary that to be a festival for us, for the first of us and The Last of Us.
so that we may eat from it when the final recipient and you are the best of providers, I know that but send it down for the heart of love.
Allah says I'm going to send down this money, I'm going to send down this this dinner for you. But here's the contract. This is why
it was a contractual not an unconditional gift. What we receive is not conditioned
familiar fullback for anyone who either
hadn't been around me, but whoever Have you disbelieves whoever view doubts whoever Have you breaches the contract after this, I will punish you with a punishment. I have never punished anyone else before. So there's a two way contract. It's a two way deal. That's number one. The second thing you see in this is what I will punish you in a way I've never punished anybody. Why? Because these are people that are gonna have a miracle in their myths. These are people that are going to see a huge miracle.
I write with their very eyes. So they are supposed to be at the tip of certainty. It's almost as if they're not required to believe in the unseen anymore, because they would they requested a love brought into reality. And so the size of your gift will determine the size of your responsibility. The punishment, if you breach will come to the degree of the privilege. Why is that important? Because now we are the most privileged of all time in Silicon Valley. It tells us that at the Omega d level, today I have completed for you your religion, what's meant to equanimity and perfected for you my favorite, I've privileged you, I favored you in a way that is perfect. With this
will lead to luckily Islam Edina, and I have accepted been pleased with Islam as you're waiting, this is your turn. So now are you going to live up to it? This is This is the story of sort of America. And what does it mean to live up to it take this home from the football, it means for things that sort of rotates around. The first is to learn this beam. That is your obligation, your responsibility not to depend on someone else to tell you what Islam is, that's your ability to do that as best you can. then number two, to live what you've learned. And to not consider it just an empty luxury. And we'll come back to that point. And number three, you're responsible like to be you
know, not only nasty relative to Muna, we have taken a contract though this is
your perfect, we have taken a contract from whoever we give the book to. You have to relay it conveyed to the people and not conceal it, that's three to deliver it. Number four, you are obligated to persevere throughout, you are obligated to put up with whatever it takes to make sure you do the past three.
And don't look for an easy door sort of imagine this
at the early part of the soul of a metabolic your dialysis. Yeah.
Very interesting guy. Oh, you were believing.
In Mena slavey, we are certainly going to test you with certain game the animal that you shoot for food, we will with certain hunting animals meaning that are accessible to you tend to add komati metrical to which you can reach they're accessible to you, with your hands and with your spears.
Think about that for a second. Let everyone know vishay in Minnesota, we are going to try you with some of these animals that you hunt.
You know, try to use an interesting word because a person is try with a disease. He's tried with poverty, he's tried with being at the mercy or lack of the enemy. But how are you try with the hunted animals?
First of all, understand the ayah are talking about the sacred sanctuary around the Capitol. So it is a violation of the sanctity of that place to hunt in this area. Understood. And so these animals are accessible to you, you have ability to catch them. But I'm testing you because you can't. So the test is where the trial is where in the ease of how
the ease at which the heroine presents itself to you.
And this is so relevant when a person is trying to keep this contract with Allah, especially nowadays, sometimes Haram is so easy.
And so just because it's easy, doesn't mean it's not a test. And so a lot so let's tell him I am testing you with this stuff that's right in front of you. I allowed it to be this available. I made the opportunity that easy.
This is exactly what we will get to that in two solos. What else have you sevens, the people who fished on Saturday when they were not allowed. It was hard to fish on Saturday. And the other days. It was hard. But it was so easy to fish on Saturday.
And so a lot so did tested them with that being so easy, so temporary.
And so a person when he finds himself able to do something that reaches his contract with Allah, don't be happy, because it was a piece of cake. If a lot has to do with some weight to win the conversation, if Allah tested you with some job that's going to cost you jumar If Allah allows you some things
That he does not permit it. He allows it in terms of its destiny. You can have it if you choose, but he does not permit it. He's not pleased with you having it. Don't be happy that you got it. It was just a test that he's it's been reported on the universe a very beautiful statement regarding this means that we should pay special attention to though this authentically being us is hard to prove another point. He used to say like mobile love about you being able to get your hands on something that's hard and not caring about any other factor. He says what?
He can mimic minerality me Why
you not caring about those on your right meaning you're not having any shame from those on your right and those on your left? When you're committing the sin is actually greater than the sin itself?
And then he continues to say about your love.
And you being
what what are you Phuket? What? Tell me Teddy mama who saw the big
and you laughing when you have no idea what Allah is going to do with you yet you haven't received your bookcase that is greater than the city.
He says what far who can eat that need to either need to edit them? Or what will meet them and you being happy that you committed the sin is greater than the city? What whose nuclear, I let them be in fact I can have them and you being sad when you missed out on an opportunity to sit into breaking the contract with Allah is worse than the sin. He says what whoa phukan meaner v. Either how to work in
situ, bad, etc magic.
And you being afraid when the wind move the curtain from your door you thought somebody was coming in?
What I have to advocate for advocate mean
and your heart not trembling in the same way that I was staring right at you that is greater than the city. So that's a message in South America for everybody.
And when you hear this verse, Now Allah is testing you with the animals that are right there in front of you. So available, when you hear this, that I want you to be the smart purse, the smart person is the one that goes home today and says what has a lot of neat easy for me in my life, and then put them into categories, which of them have brought me closer to Allah, or not taken me farther from Allah and which has been traps that I fell for. And then ask yourself in that list, what made me so happy about these things? Why didn't I see them as just a test?
It's because I wasn't reading something.
And so this was the first one because it's so easy now with these regarding your contract without love to just let it spill it. It's so easy nowadays to say whatever you want to type, whatever you want to do whatever you want, and you think it's fine. But the believer The difference is the believer understands that it being available and it being near to me easy for me, is a lot. So as an example. The second advice the law gives us to keep our contracts within that are so serious, so that we are not replaced is you're not allowed to look around.
Don't look around at who is going to be fulfilling the contract like me or not a lot. So Genesis one
w madonsela is sent to them follow with a mouse and down.
And what came down to the messenger called who has buena mela j dinner and he
will say no, no, put that away. No, it is enough for us what we found our forefathers upon.
Many of us see this statement without realizing when they're told that it is not permissible. Sister. You need to change the way you speak. Brother You need to find another job. They say what are you talking about? This is the way everyone's been doing it. Everybody does this. My parents did this. My grandparents did that. They prayed like this. They made it like that. Don't come here with a new religion. Right?
As if Allah Subhana Allah told you just make sure you like everybody else. So a lot of this is not an evidence of Lee in your favor. This was not the contract. The contract was a welcome
Daddy says lol Can I babble? Larry?
Dude, what if their fathers didn't know anything? Part of the contract I said in one of four was what you have to learn. You're only allowed to imitate another wisdom, even if he's a scholar temporarily until you can learn because I love knows it's impossible for you to learn all of Islam overnight or even in your entire lifetime. But you need to exert an effort to verify every aspect of your Islam is it wants from me, isn't what came down on the messenger Salallahu audio send them or not, and you are not allowed to look around. That's not part of the contract.
And this is not just with our forefathers, this is with our cultures, this is what we inherit, you know, the sin starts as a sin initially, right? And it's everyone's offended. And then after a while, it just becomes normalized becomes normal. And then we have aspects in our culture that are sins that we think are part of their religion.
And that's why you're not allowed to look around
there are a few quick points if I wish
to fill all the gaps that they had
an extra parents coming in. So fill as many gaps as you can worry about the rules and
there is a scene and there are many scenes in sort of America that explain how the previous nations and why the previous nations breached their covenants with Allah subhana wa, and why they will replace ultimately with this owner. After each
of those we wish to mention quickly to bring some of these meanings full circle is the story of Mussolini's Elementary in Jerusalem of mathematical analysis. That mousseline Sallam said to his people who do
this, and let's get him up.
Well attempted to
enter the promised land, the Holy Land,
which our mind has written for you. It's yours follow instructions, it's a given. And don't turn your backs the same Island recycling 20 minutes ago, whoever turns their back on will replace them. He said to them, don't do it. Don't turn your backs. So they said almost inevitable. minchinbury. Right. There are some really tough superpower people in there. Right? We're in Atlanta.
And we'll never enter it will never face them. We're not willing to face this challenge.
If the lead will enter.
So the conversation is starting at musasa. In the middle of this conversation, there's one sentence that's interjected and the conversation continues. Very interesting. Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, Carla, Juliana Mina, Lavina, Hakuna and
Bella, for either the hunt to move,
to move meaning to men, according to the vast majority of the scholars, Quranic explanation scholars, these two men were ordinary folks, just two men, who were they they were medically feared of love. And I'm in love with him and I love to favorite them by granting them the sphere of Allah subhana wa.
just marched through the gates of the city. If you do that you're promised victory and put your trust in Allah if you are believers. And then they go back to Muslims, they were not going any effort no matter what you win your Lord of the Flies.
Who's talking to ordinary men in the presence of who think about what just happened in the presence of Mousavi celebrities
and not just new signings? His brother Hassan Ali Salim another prophet, and not just our new salary,
but according to some reports, you shall known which is the servant boy who took after who's the apprentice.
musalla set up a third one, he's there as well. And still, they found a role for themselves.
So if you see people giving talks, helping Islam, you know, reclaim itself and its reputation. If you see people coming to Islam in waves, if you see the awakening to its Dean, you still have work to do. That's still not enough. You have to find your place in this doubt, for your sake, because that's part of the contract. And we said, number three is to delivery. That's part of the contract, whatever you know, of Islam, you need to deliver. And if you do that, you will face some opposition. And it would be a bit difficult, and it's going to be challenging internally and externally. But if you don't, what you are going to suffer is so much more painful, internally and externally. You know
you have any food and
when asked to help me, man, the QB?
It's because they were reaching their contracts, that we expelled them from our nurse. This is the meaning of life. And we made their hearts hard.
The most painful feeling in the world worse than the dead worse than the Hellfire, you feel disconnected from us.
And that's why one of our brothers, you know, tells people in our country so true, so correct. He says to her, listen, I'm not telling you if you become Muslim, all your problems are going to be solved overnight. It's quite a low. But our mob will give you a near history and inner peace that will enable you to handle it all. You know, it's very hard. It's very hard to do, what this contract is demanding. But if you just walk through the door, as they're telling you, if you just do what Allah is commanding of you, he will infuse you with this Nereus, this sweetness and this strength to be able to continue, you will be able to do you'll be able to if need be, and this is part of the
contract in some scenarios to walk away from the whole world. That's very hard for you, the whole world are doing something and I'm gonna be the weirdo. The whole world is following a certain trend as I'm sorry, I don't we don't do that stuff. Only after marriage. No, no, we don't celebrate this.
This is not of the ways to get them to that level. Right? What I said in the beginning of the book is to know this is a deal with who with Allah subhana wa Taala. Number two to know that Allah will strengthen you once you begin on this path towards you. You take one step he will take attendance, he'll meet you and carry you out on this journey.
Even if you need to walk away from the world, even if you need to carry mountains, because sometimes the contract demands that that will be my last reflection here.
At the end of the conversation with Mossad he said
he said in Neela Emily Quinlan,
oh my lord, I have no say over anybody, I can't control the decisions made by anybody, but myself and my brother, how
furfural baby were made their own facet. So separate between me and between the rebellious people. Sometimes the only way this is what adds to your ability to fulfill your contract. Sometimes that means yes keeping relationship for our love and suffering others for a loss.
And it will not be fazed a Mattel's who focus on me, I will empower you. Don't be fazed by the numbers. Don't be fazed by the numbers. He said in America.
Tell them it is not equivalent to the foul and the poor whenever.
Even if you're impressed by the size of the iceberg, right? Even if you're impressed by how the number is of how much evil is out there. There comes a time where you may have to walk away, to stay alive.
Just have to stay home, stay in your mystery mode. Hold on to that contract. Sometimes you need to as Omar says,
to just focus on yourself.
ignore everything else. The Temptations the criticisms just leave it all off. You will not be harmed.
You will not be harmed by the whole world being against the whole world.
being wrong. If they go astray you will not be harmed so long as you are guided.
Ask yourself my brothers and sisters ask yourself, how are we of this country?
how soft and near? Do we feel our hearts on
many cases, either magenta
you find this hardness in your art you can't feel is near this. You can't feel his help. You can't feel that his relief is near. You can't feel these things. He says, Well, I'm lucky from
that. Be careful check. Maybe you broke your contract.
And the profits a lot of audiences this contract is renewed has to be reactivated. It's done every single day. kulu nascio. fair value Neff seven. For more. tiempo
says every person walks out in the morning and he sells his spirit. He sells his soul. I mean, he sells himself he invests himself in some sort of endeavor, right? And so by doing that, he either liberates himself, he finds inner peace, he finds strength, he finds liberation. He finds happiness, he finds salvation by selling themselves to Allah or he says he either saves himself or he destroys it, by selling it by selling it to the people that are inflated or artificially by selling by the momentum of evil that is around sort of humanity that tells you hold on to that a contract, everything you want, everything you've lost, you'll find it in the float just makes you do that
speak to Obama renew your contract with him. So
we asked a lot to teach us how to understand this book, and to allow us a lot of life that we're in we are attached to this book male loneliness alone that never betray our contracts with Him. May Allah subhana wa enable us at this moment to renew our promises to him.
Forgive us for only he knows about us.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala make our reputation among slaves beautiful and make what they don't know about this better than what they know of us love mommy mother the sincerity in public and in private and in speech and in actions protect our children from every confusion every temptation protect our men and our women and our children our brothers and our sisters local and abroad from every risk and every disease and have mercy on every disease among the Muslims. I love them. I mean, I love them I
love them I
love them I feel and I
know better whilst activating them what I mean so when a genome you know narrow will become a better
narrow so that we can have a better fit and
a lot of men wouldn't want to read that article. Why did
Mr. Blog narrow becoming Chairman email so narrow? That will be the Romantic era that we do? No. Fancy bla bla
