I can see wrong
with double lol and later sir
He have in Nevada Canada.
to begin Oh praise and glory meets all love the Lord of mines we thank him we praise Him we seek His help and his guidance
and his forgiveness for our sins and his protection from the whispers within us that in Sydney with evil
and the punishments and the consequences in this world and the next that will result of those whispers for whomever Allah guides.
He can never be led astray and remember on what leaves a strain on can guide them and we justify that non is worthy of our Trojan Allah, our worship of Allah, our dedication, our absolute love, our absolute obedience, our absolute humility, our absolute fear, our absolute longing, but Allah subhana wa tada the supreme King, and the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was indeed certainly His Prophet that his messenger
Oh, you haven't believed half that's a form of love, remain mindful, remain mindful of him, to the degree that he deserves as best as you possibly can, and do not die except in a state of complete and total cognizance. dutifulness obedience to Allah, a state of Islam
to begin, after welcoming our brothers and sisters to the House of Lords telogen
it is human nature that when a person is subject
to difficulties subject to problems, subject to disappointments or tragedies, the whole spectrum,
in his dunya in, even in his worldly affairs, even in his day to day life,
or when a person is subject to accusations against his religion and challenges to his beliefs
and objections to his values and his principles. It is human nature that this dark atmosphere, this challenge will begin to settle and have an effect on a person it wears them down. It is very taxing.
And sometimes a person can be able to withstand the huge calamity in their life.
But it is the consistent, repetitive small problems that eat away at you until they break him.
At times, you can find something as weak as an ad, next to another end, next to a colony of ants can team up on a volume and destroyed
and this is this. This is the same with the belief. This is the same with the human beings. No matter how strong you may be in any given incident. At times, you just don't have that long breath. You don't have the ability to persevere throughout
the trials of life. And that's where our 10th solar solar tools comes in.
The scholars mentioned that sort of Uranus was revealed the ninth 10th 11th
Fear from the advent of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his ministry, meaning in the early years in Mecca a year or two, before Mecca was no longer a viable option for the believers, and they had to leave. This is when the heat got turned up like never before. The incidents are
going out to the city and they added insult to injury. And they did not just reject his message, they did not just harm him, they sent their children out to stone him and lead him to sit down.
And then he comes back into Mecca, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was subjected to more and more and more harm.
And for three years in Mecca also in those final years,
he had to suffer the boycott for years on end, almost like the refugee camps of today, the Muslims had nowhere to go, they were locked in a ravine a valley, those and whomever was from their family that their ancestral pride caused them to be with the Muslim stand in solidarity, but it was the Muslims there majorly in their being able bodied and the shout of everybody were there would be no food, and they would see one another dying, deteriorating in front of them.
This is not a moment of bravery. These are three years of deterioration. These are this is the incident that caused the profits of low fatwallet he was setting them to lose the dearest person in his life for deja that she never recovered from it. As soon as the boycott was over, as soon as they're able to breathe, she falls sick and she dies. And then his uncle level died and was also in the ravine with him.
And so in that kind of atmosphere, naturally, people have various reactions, because they have various degrees of endurance, there are the people that lose hope altogether. And there is nothing more dangerous than a person without hope, a person that desperate, a person that feels like following the rules is not going to work.
And that existed that it exists today. Then there are the people that are seeing what's the big deal. I mean, what are these pagans wants from us, these pagans of Mecca, what do they want? They want the compromise. And so they said, What's the big deal? A few modifications here, put that verse away there.
And then there are the people that may have lost their faith altogether, not lost hope and victory. They lost hope in the faith itself. They left the religion altogether. But the vast majority by the blessing and bounty of Allah was the fourth category, the category that understood students units and its likes correctly. And those were the people that not just stayed firm in and of themselves in their Deen. But they stood up and they delivered the message. They stood up and said, Yes, this is it, turn it up, do it harder, do it more persecution or not, we're not going to stay silent. We're not going to back down from our Deen nor even advocating our Deen, we're still going to say it loud
So how now that is the overview, I just want you to live the atmosphere of the school, most of us would not be able to handle the circumstances, most of us will have a various a variety of reactions the same way we have today, though it was more difficult back then. And so what did sort of Uranus do exactly, to be able to refine this, to be able to save the believers and to actually empower them, strengthen them through these incidents. If you pay attention to the soul, if you are careful, you will see the most obvious things that did is that infuse them with being
a people that understood that this was a face and that this was not the end, and it showed them the true light at the end of the tunnel. You see when a person loses hope or a person is confused and he loses sleep even he loses food. But so habit one
could have been subject to even delirium perhaps they say we used to look in each other's faces and our lips were green because of the leaves we had to eat. Milan.
I walked away from the crowd from the people were when we were camped to urinate to relieve myself and I heard something crunchy under my feet. I looked down and was a skin a height of an animal. So we became so happy with that he took it and burned it up a little bit to clean it and we would not go away afterwards.
They had to settle for these things.
the sort of universe came and I told them listen, do not hold on to you know when you're delirious. You know, when you're
hopeless, you know, when you're not emotionally stable, you'll see a dream and you'll put all your hope in a dream. Or someone will say anything, I saw a dream that Michelle said die. But we hear nowadays, and everyone puts their hopes on exactly what happened in the dream. So Tina says, Don't do it. Don't do that to yourself. infuse them with the truest light at the end of the tunnel.
meeting a must.
Because anything else is not guaranteed. Anything else could be wishful thinking, the whispers of shape on a mystery of the truth, but the Ayat of Allah in the Quran are not a mystery of the truth. It told them that you're going to meet Allah, and that there is a meeting with Allah that you have to look forward to, you have to prepare for you are going to walk up to the subhana wa.
You gonna have to have this conversation also, you know, it's like, you know, you have an interview.
You keep highlighting the date, and you mark it on your calendar, and you do a whole bunch of things to prepare for it. What am I going to wear? rehearse? What am I going to say? The What do people usually ask in interviews? And then you prepare these answers. Why, because you're sure you have this interview, you're sure that this has to take place. And you're sure that after a few moments, you're going to be dismissed, we'll call you. But this call is very consequential.
The next 2030 4050 years of my life could be dependent on what is said in this phone call, I'm about to get the result of the interview. And as soon as unisys you have a much more consequential, much more crucial interview, and much more crucial meeting that you need to be certain of the meetings of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
That light at the end of the tunnel as many things you know, when you don't know how much longer you have. Sometimes it makes it a bit harder, a bit harder to extend the blast to withstand the pressure. You know, even yourself, you can try this, when you already know where you're going, you know exactly where you're going to end up. But you're not sure how long it's going to take to get there. It's harder.
When you turn on your GPS, it's easier to stay awake 40 miles 30 2010.
And so so that you don't set the compass of your heart in any wrong direction. So during
this lesson, you're going to meet a boss.
That's what should give you hope. That's where you should place all your marbles as they say.
And to not work hard on anything on any interview on any meeting, the way you work for this, keep that right in the center between your eyes, or else you've lost insight, or else you missed the whole point of the whole. And that was sort of curious to see because the concept of the art in that is repeated 1234 times sort of funerals and refer to from other angles in different ways. But it pinpoints meeting above. That's what's guaranteed.
What happens before that is not guaranteed. What happens after that right now is not guaranteed in your eyes increase. And so where is your insight, it infuses them with that insight, if not secondary or himolla used to say which he had this measure yourself like how do you treat this interview? How sure are you about it? How much do you prepare for it? He says he had to get female domina luck. mahratta sirika. Female to Lieberman, the de Lune along with the message vasila he says check yourself you working so hard.
on something that's already guaranteed for you you risk your lifespan while being negligent heedless of the things that are demanded of you not guaranteed to demand that over you your your terms with Allah, this is the clearest sign that your insight has been blocked it out that you have no insight
and so a lot so as it says in sort of Uranus in London in a lie or jewelry, or an Oracle
Wan Latina who is in alfine.
Indeed, those that are not looking forward to meeting us and satisfied with the life of this world, and secure with it secure because of it, and those that are heedless of our signs of our of our proofs who lie he can wear who will now
be Mackendrick. cvsc born in these people, their residence will be the fire because of all that they used to earn.
And so first of all, there's a meeting with Allah but just pay attention.
To the end because this is pretty much summarize the SOA and if we don't discuss anything else fine.
In the levena la Yong Joon and epi, those that do not look forward, are expecting are hopeful. With two meeting rooms are not hopeful of meeting us. You see the issue of the hereafter the issue of meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala the times a person may not fully grasp, why are we talking about hope, like I'm going through all these disasters and you tell them you have to go answer for this. It seems like it's a dark story either way.
That is something we create. It is not enough for and therefore and it does give emphasis that there must be fear and never assuming too well of yourself and placing your hope without love. But it does put the greatest emphasis on loving of ourselves and longing to meet him looking forward to expecting it. And that is the greatest thing you can do to meet a lot is to look forward to it. That is the greatest thing we do lose sight of that many times. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say was never met that he was shown in an embodied, Oh Allah I asked you to place inside to me, to grant me that the light of looking at your face, and was shown by either the body and the
longing, the yearning, the earnest that feeling of impatience, towards meeting you, meeting a lot about
meeting him speaking to him, hearing from him, seeing him
would you who you're meeting Now there are a lot behind now, this should be more than anything else, that a person thinks about in the hereafter faces certain faces, not everybody on that date will be bright will be glowing. Why? Because they are to their Lord staring.
You know the prophets Allah
says to us, that Allah
a person cannot handle seeing him here. You cannot. He says he Jabu new level kashia who la Harper, who had to which he meant to her he was on
his veil, the veil of Allah is light.
If he were to remove that veil meaning for us in this world, the glory of His face, soprano without the ability to see
the glory of His face will burn will incinerate whatever his eyesight or whatever his sight can reach of his creation, meaning everything that Allah can see would be burned meaning everything would burn. If he would unveil himself to us here. You know and say someone is
so beautiful. He is Jamil he is beautiful to panda What are we know someone so beautiful, he catches your attention, then someone is you upgrade a little bit someone so beautiful, they're stunning. And then like with people, we use the term like drop dead gorgeous, right? So beautiful. You can drop that from seeing them. It's a form of exaggeration, a lot. So a general only speaks the truth. He says to you, if you were to see me now You would not die, you would evaporate, you would burn.
And then he comes to the people of paradise. And he says to the LSE do
not increase if you want more Do you want more? And they're seeing the abundance, the bliss, the ecstasy of gentlemen, they say that our planes and our platinum, say, Oh our God, you've given us that you've given us you've given us what you've never given anybody, every person in general will feel that way. He says I will give you something greater,
something better. They say oh, what can possibly be better. He says, Don't worry for us.
I will make permanent for you. My pleasure. I'll never become angry.
And then that veil of light, the veil is like it's removed
and they are lost, engaged to get there.
The people have genuinely a lot of them are lost in seeing him. They forget the bliss of gender that is not imaginable Indonesia in the era. They will forget it when they see a lot of soldiers face. And so a person is supposed to look forward to this. The believer this should be locked in front of him.
The greatest feeling you can have in this world is when you finally get to know of love. And if you get to know Him you will love to meet him. That's the greatest feeling in this world.
The greatest feeling in the next world is meeting him. So are you certain you will meet this is the question of sort of Jonas regardless of what happens but you know you're going to meet what simple love while Mr. Nakamura Phu
fear of MMA, be mindful of what he says, and know that you will need to be sure if you're going to meet me
and give good tidings to the believers, like tell the believers relax, or just wait till you you know, when someone sends you a message, but don't worry, I'm almost there. Give God just wait till you come, just come over and everything will be alright. A lot. So just saying that,
you know, you will meet him and get good tidings to the believers. How can a person live with this by the way, I actually want to hurt the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, Man I have
never loves to meet a woman love to meet them, and whomever hates to meet our marketing. Lovely. Lovely to meet them. She said.
We all hate to die. Like Yes, the only way you're going to meet them was to die. I'm afraid to die.
It's half your test. And the other half is without law. And we need to understand this. He said to me, no, no, no.
When the time of death comes, and then befalls the angels of our law come down 10, I said, up to the descendant, they arrived in front of the slave. And the tell him come knowing someone selling he's waiting for you. That's what it's like for the believer, the person who's a believer, that's how you're going to look forward to it, you worked hard here, you will, Allah will make it you want to see your reward, you're going in someone's house in this dunya. And you know, this person respects you loves you, you've done them a favor in the past, you're not gonna be like the rest of the guests, you're gonna feel extra at home there. Because you know, you have a deposit with this hose.
And so the angels come and they say you're a believer, and
so kind of. So part of it is you being a believer to be able to long to meet a lot, you have to have a reason to loan. And then when you are like that a lot, this is very interesting. So let us think of the context, you will have your life filled with problems.
You will constantly be reminded
that this dunya is was made to disappoint you.
And that's why the closer a person gets to a love, the more difficult is tests, because every time you go through a test, yeah, there's nothing here from really the Why should I be satisfied? There's nothing to satisfy me here. There's no reason for me to feel secure here. And the iron sort of tuna system in underneath the bar and those that don't look forward to meeting us Why? What else do we have? They're satisfied in this world? What might be delusional, they feel secure within What's there to feel secure about every single thing every offer this world can make you there's no security in it, like money, can money, buy everything, no deficiencies. You have a connection, you
know, somebody? Can that connection expired?
Can someone have a bigger connection and take your rights? Can the rumor be spread about you and this person hates you? Every single offering of this world is deficient? Why it's illogical even to feel security from Allah says it's low, he says.
But a person when they get distracted, usually it's because they had these offers made to them. And so they lose sight of the proofs, the aim. And so is that it says they don't look forward to our signs. They are accepting. Rather, they accept they're satisfied, they settle for this world, they feel secure with it. And so they become negligent of our science. They don't see. But when I love films, your life with problems.
The best thing about that is it teaches you to look forward to meeting
the prophets of the love body, you're setting them loose, loses all of his children his life. And this is not a man who is emotionally disconnect. This is a very, very big heart. And he thought was very in touch with his emotions except for father, mother Lavanya. He is told that she will die soon after him. He goes through everything he goes through. And then look at the sensitivity of his heart now, and as a mnemonic of the underlining says that when it would rain, the profits of the love audience and they would come out and he would grab his clothes and soak up the rain with his clothes and sell a car we'll be careful. What Telecom. Well, Hulu in that
he would be happy with the rain and he'd go out catching it with his clothes and see
It is very recently in contact with my Lord. It's fresh a one just created, everything would remind him then that's why I told you it's half your job. And then a lot so again, His Divine Grace takes over. And it helps you along the way.
And it helps you along with you know many people. The next is what those that don't look forward to meeting and settle for this world secure with it. ignore our signs, that's all the result, right? It's it's locked in together, the next assets will come in. Now these people are going to the fire, because let's just be honest, many people take dunia likes, right? You take it like what's the big deal? It's just hella things like this. And many times when a person is like that the hell our minds get blurry for them.
And this verse says that we ended up settling for dunya not loving it. The problem is I fell in love certain aspects of the dunya. But this zoom, this disconnect this, this interest in the dounia didn't mean he wanted to be poor, some of them, it doesn't mean that you're poor. It means that you're not distractible that you cannot be it comes it comes hungry la loves to see that we we appreciate his blessings in our clothes and everything and it goes and goes, it's not going to break me the people that they had such high expectations of it, those are those broken by it, because it is made to be trading.
And let's be frank, we live in a secular side. And much of the world the dominant color of secularism has has has polluted contaminated much of our mindset and our religion is the in in general like the other people treat their religions as if they're the same. We use it as a comfort zone like you just come for, you know, to feel good about your deen and that seeks to make you feel good about yourself. Tell me something, you know, the person who gives a charity likes to get the act of charity and the person that that praise family but nothing else he likes to hear you know about him when they we just we compartmentalize the deen
and that that is very destructive for us. You know, one of the scholars of Islam was approached by a man, a man that has nothing to do with being obvious, but a lot which 1200 perhaps and he gave him aside, he came to the ship and she and I have a dream. And most of the time a person that is not in the masjid or not attached to the book of Allah, they will come to the masjid, to feel comfort again, he'll come because he just got an American problem. Or he'll come because he saw a certain dream. Otherwise, that's it. He came. This is age old by the way. But it may be it's accentuated, it's a bit highlighted in our age. Now, with secularism being the greatest or the most prominent,
dominant world religion, he came to the shift of that shift I saw in a dream, I saw in a dream that I was running from a lion and I jumped into a woman and I grabbed onto a rope.
And then when I looked down and saw there's a huge snake in the water down there, and I look up the lines on top of the world hoping some way for me to come out or him to come in is that I'm sitting there in the middle of this. This is a dream, obviously, is I saw two mice come and start eating the robo black mouse in a white mouse. Sounds like a you know riddles.
He says and in the middle of all this, I don't know what to do. I can't go up I can't go down why I
I can't stand still. He says I saw a huge honeycomb beehive honeycomb on the side of the wall of the world. It just stunned me. And I couldn't help I just took my hand out and I tasted it
when I woke up.
So it's a shareholders meeting.
He said to him, this slide is that that is chasing you.
And this snake is your grave. You're gonna run from death to your grave. There's nowhere to go. It's gonna swallow him. He said, and this rope is your lifeline. It represents your lifespan.
And the black and white mouse or this other day in the night they eat away at your lifeline, whether you like it or not, that they hands you off to the night, right hands off to the day. There's no pause while you can't stand still.
So the American says what about the honeycomb? He said the honeycombs, the sweetness of dystonia that caused you to forget everything else.
Imagine a person
that comforts himself like that. Like that's a security mechanism being nothing else. how insane is such a person?
You're smiling, you're sitting in front of like this guy's out of his mind. We do that all the time.
And so we're so afraid of the early Muslims and the
prophets of Allah.
He says out loud or whenever he says no rather the highest company, they said so we knew he was being given the choice. To stay or to go it's only the profits are requested or
permission is requested from them by the angel of the convention.
More either using a sham, greater Syria and the plague hits,
he saw a small sign of discoloration his finger possibly caught the bleed.
And he embraced it. He said in the hustle he will love you badly for somebody This is small but unlocking lesson and making big, like maybe this is my exit ticket.
And he began asking for leading up to consciousness until finally the morning came the last day of his life. And he said, Oh Allah, Oh Allah, you know, I used to hear you will add an element or two. And today I place all my hopes with you, I am making you on. And he got choked up with his soul.
And he used to say,
go ahead and joke or why you want me to die for our executive in the cabinet.
Because you know that I used to be
one of the early Muslims in law, perhaps because I saw a woman going in the market saying what law if death was purchasable it's time to kill yourself. So it's not. If that was purchasable, I would purchase it at any cost. So Cynthia, what is with you? Are you so confident than yourself? Are you so confident in your judgment? You're not afraid? She said, No, I'm not confident in my deeds. She said, but do you think he will punish me when I want to think you just gonna throw me in the fire like that I wouldn't have loved if he didn't love me. So kind of
those that expect to look forward and hoping in the meeting with him and not allow anything to distract us from that.
Allah grant us, the Lord says he will never leave the gathering is too lengthy, there are a part of it.
And grant doesn't mean any of it.
and grant us that kind of certainty, right? Meaning a meeting that would shrink for us the catastrophes of our lives, to the degree of your certainty in that meeting, your disaster shrink, he says later on in the door, and do not make this dunia. attivo hamina, the greatest of our concerns what Laurie Mina, nor the extent of our knowledge is all we understand it's just the apparent nature of this world. Do not make us those people.
And we honestly don't use it. Instead, our story is widespread. So
we're not going to go into the sake of time. But there are some beautiful concepts there. Don't let them pass you by. The Muslims are trapped in the body. And Uranus on a soul level gets trapped in the belly of the whale, and Uranus and he said I've had every reason to despair. I was fanatical follow Matt. He called out in the darknesses. Like the darkness of the night of the ocean, the belly of the whale, the emotional darkness of the sadness, the fear, the depression.
And in the middle of that he comes out and says what
glorified you are. He wasn't
he never got blurry, glorified, I made the mistake. Right? And likewise, the believers when they're going through things, they have to have that in you. To be frank with yourself this dunya concerned with that much do I have enough that I don't get braced too much that I only face too much by the life's problems? Do I is the near the extent of my knowledge. evaluate yourself say I'm wrong say I need to get fixed one law he my brothers and sisters in law he a person
after being exposed to a little bit of Islamic sciences.
We've been doing this all wrong our whole lives. We've been doing it all wrong. Yeah to come tomorrow night. One of the announcements we don't have to make after that the physical fasting, there are people that have been fasting wrong their entire lives. Sometimes.
There are people that have been praying wrong their entire lives. There are people that if they had it in them to not look at our law, why is this happening today just look at themselves. they'll realize that they were oppressing their wives for 3040 years, that they're tyrants inside their homes. Women that don't understand that their contempt against their husband kind of got out of control and became content against the rules of a lot of times. So that's what we take of course on the story of Judas is set up by Judas on a syllabus
huge deal in light of what was happening to the province, I'll send him and share that in London. And it should be a huge deal for us now, as well stuck in the middle of the ocean, we don't know where to go. And I've lost a little tells you no matter what you do in order to make the right decisions throughout this difficulty, make sure you see the light at the end of the tunnel. You know, so as I mentioned, just one year from now for me manually entering the Cabal by lending it to Elena telophase and Elena mogera. Listen, whether we show you all prophet of Allah, oh, you who I love, no one more than I love you more than anybody will come. So a lot of it was a love, whether we
show you during your life, what we promised them
the threats we made against these pagans, whether we show it to you or you die first, they're coming back to us anyway. Meaning stop demanding from Allah that it worked on your calendar that the promises have, you have to be sure that our must promise is true. And that's only by sticking to His signs and looking forward to meeting him and not setting up expectations like he said in the beginning of the book, but do not demand from above when be certain that when it's not up to you. There is a huge point also, when you think about what's happening you think of hell of burning right now. Aleppo, Damascus buruma only if it was up to us. Yeah, it's over in a day. And when it's not
over a day, you could shake it be sure that it's not yours to see. Musashi Sam is born he's born and they're slaughtering babies. He had to wait 3040 years for it to end it was up to me I'd say Oh, it's gonna be over the day after tomorrow. It can't get any worse than this. For Elaine mo Jim, they will come back to us keep your eyes on that. So you don't get blurry vision may allow endless insight in his book. May Allah make use of those that live to meet him and they have laws that not allow us to settle for that which will disappoint us a lot. I mean, a lot not
only he made it elevate and I'll see you on the blog together to a luminary ej community have been
what are the challenges? Mina Mina
