LA to hold a deja
we begin to praise and glory.
And we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure. And we turned to him seeking forgiveness for our sins and protection from the evil whispers within us. And the awful consequence the result of the
guy is going to lead us astray and whether or not leads without guidance, there is no one that can guide you. And we testify that no one is worthy of our worship and our absolute love and devotion but Allah, alone, tiny partners and the prophets of Allah,
His Prophet and his servant, and His Messenger, oh, people will be mad all you ever really be fearful about love, be conscious, or walk up to a love to be extended in the manner that he deserves. And do not leave despite except in a state of a complete and total surrender, you have lost a scar
over humanity. So that says, Be conscious of your ego and to remain observant of your
soul and pulled out of its me and pulled out of those too many minutes.
And fear of a loved one by which you ask one another in his name, your mutual rights and be conscious of the wounds that have more you the ties of kinship, the ties of family, indeed, otherwise ever watched over all that you do. And oh you will believe it or versus having a tough love and see a firm word, a word that is accurate that reaches the mark, speak the truth even.
Even if it's not to your liking as a result of level, rectify your deeds, and forgive you for your recipes. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has truly succeeded to the greatest success
to begin with, and sisters in the House of Lords, and thanking him for the blessing of Islam and the use of guidances How is the blessing of another drummer, I wish to talk about a celebration that we don't we don't have enough that we don't have enough.
And that is the celebration that our lives are diminishing. When he said it wouldn't be folding that in the
to send another witness to mama and apparently is something that's not an even exchange something
with the bounty of his gift
and receive His mercy with his leniencies ease his mercy, his compassion with those two, let them celebrate limited rejoice. Let them congratulate one another let them smile from within and knowing that they have these two why for five minutes,
because these two are better than all they can collect.
The Companions of the prophets of Allah
understood this is to me above all else, the follow that are lost the legitimacy to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to relate to his companions and is related to anyone willing to listen any sensible person.
Then with the bounty of meaning the program because the court ad is the greatest gift or whatever again,
and it is the greatest favor that it can never pay for one TV and with his mercy. They said this is the mercy of Islam. This was many
Believe it or not, there's Jimmy. So with
the bounty of mercy, let me rejoice. Because why? Because these two are better than anything people get collected in they are greater than everything life has to offer, they offer a life that money cannot buy.
Because when you forget about the program, and you don't celebrate it, and you don't appreciate it, as a result, you forget about yourself.
You lose out on your own interests. Because the aura was sent as a white for your life, and the a spirit for your soul as the famous verse that we visit many entirely, we should continue to remind you about it. He said some kind of diverges profits of the love where it will send it up, we'll get that and go
into mallacoota Keita.
tel, and this is how we reveal to you all.
But what did you call them? This verse? Is we revealing to you a new experience. From our commandment, you didn't know what the rule was, you didn't even know what it meant to be a believer or didn't even know what faith was. But we chose to make it
up, we made it a new light by which we guide whoever we wish our sleeves. And so when double added, the lights get turned on, you understand that the things you consider a little No, you're just looking at the corner and you don't realize what it's affecting, like the blessings in your life that you consider the tool, or the duties in your life you think are just casually moving to deal duties, you realize that actually the big things, and then realizing these things that are so big in your life, you shine a bright light on the village is all fake, it's empty on the inside the castle Valley. So these are really the small buildings. So it's a light for your life. And at the beginning
of the year, he calls it a spirit. Why? Because only from your origins Can you be nourished, meaning you will create it from there, your body was at least and so nourished by what comes from material.
And what also Allah gave you a gift from above a soul and a spirit, only a soul from above, and to nourish it. And so if you're not dedicating your life to this gift, if you're not celebrating this, you're not really living anymore, you're living the life of the body, you're not really living a life worth living.
that's meaningful, because no one else tells you about you. And it defines for you values and meanings, you know, have inspired the subject of this book is completely unplanned to be driving around on New Year's Eve in New York City, you can imagine from 11pm to 12, I had to check out my apartment by the 31st. So I had to have a truck riding around doing a few things on that night to hand over the keys. And right before right after it struck midnight. You see people on every street on every corner, perhaps they're more concentrated in these areas in the city, like people jumping up and down and screaming and fireworks and hugging and kissing each other and just selling them.
And I honestly honestly feel bad for these people to what are you celebrating? Like what has happened? What has changed? a digit has changed on the calendar. That's what the problem was solved.
Which disease was cured? What's that of yours absolve? You're actually good to wake up in the morning with a bigger credit card statement? Because all that you spent in the holiday season? Have we solved racism? are we solving world hunger, even on this level? What has happened nothing at all. The issue is that these people don't live meaningful lives. And so they have to give artificial meaning systems because they need to be nourished on the inside in the spiritual sense on the emotional side. And just like the human being with food, if you can't find good food, you pick through the garbage and take whatever you can find. Likewise, such people, they celebrate something
that is empty, because it's all they can find. And what will hurt even more now is when you see a Muslim that has the added to celebrate and to turn on the lights for him. And that Muslim has the same or near to it lack of perspective.
And so what I wish to do for as many things was
is to give us an overview of this book, we're supposed to be selling
Reading, and just a sample, a sample of what it could provide for our lives
to teach us how to reflect. And so for example, in this book, we will talk about an overview, a bird's eye view, if you will,
which is a very, very special, especially for us here, especially here in the West, especially in the age that we live in.
And I want you to put your life on pause to put your happiness on pause, and to put your sadness on pause, and just go home with your family, put the fight aside, put the bills aside, put the accomplishments aside for a second, and just spend from now until the next time, if a law permits that I find that reflecting on saltimbocca, then it will suit that angle, so that we can feel like we're progressing as an individual as a community. I will set that up each group of finalists permission and through that lens you reflect. And I said that overview Why? Because many of you know principle, tons of times. Even if just a robot, sometimes we start when we say we're gonna go
through the whole ad. We don't always get through it, but we at least get them super long before the momentum dies down. But we're not exactly sure what sort of bucket is trying to tell us right? Why would I want to package these together? Why? Why are these I am jumping from subject to subject in a way that doesn't make any sense to me. How can I make sense of it? That's my purpose responsibility Sharma so bear with me.
So Papa came down in Medina, in the earliest years of medieval and now you have to consider the Muslims are coming to a new place a new lead notice how relevant a land with a completely different culture. There was hardly anybody from the People of the Book. in Mecca, they were the patrons that the idea was first and listen to you and write the pagan idol worshipers of
the machine. But when you go to Medina, you have three tribes of the Jews. The benefit of a new culture, a new mindset, and they're interacting with these people. They see how they transact how they deal in their business. They see how they circumvent or they loophole around certain rules. They see how they look at others through an eye of egotism or pride and tribalism, or racism, tribalism.
This is one thing so the Paradis needs to inform them about a new type of human being they need to deal with so that they are not affected by their negative qualities. At the same time, among the Muslims themselves, are a new type of people that can catch them off guard at least.
These are the hypocrites, those that had no reason to exist in Mecca. Because in Mecca, the Muslims were
oppressed. So why should I think there's no benefit in that? Right? Only when you're coming to Medina now. And you're supposed to be those that have about to take over the state, if you will. That sounds wrong in our contemporary times, I know but it's about to leave the warring factions and cause unity and cause peace between ourselves. So the Muslims are developing strength. And so people have a reason not to say we outside those disbelieving on the inside. Now, editor suitable for
Allah Subhana Allah bpdus with two three
and above, or see the first four I after the initial idea about the believers for a week versus the believers and those that believe in the unseen and fulfill the commandments. Then there are two is about the disbelievers in the
believer, the straightforwardness believes you warn them you don't want them. They're there. They're disbelievers for real if you wouldn't,
then it's brief because this has already been talked about for 30 years.
Now there's the rest of the old first over until the 24th, if you will, of sooner or later, there is a long discussion just on the team so the believers can pinpoint them if they need to. And the believers can recognize if they fully pray to some of their diseases. Listen, the Paradis telling you about what could arise in you
methadone chemical is still out there now.
We'll see you soon.
Believers is like the example of someone that was in the dark. So he needed some light to seize weight. So he lit the torch
And then when everything illuminated around him when he got an immediate benefit from the lights are away with that light and left him in the darkness.
Somebody can't speak anymore.
He can't hear anymore. He cannot speak anymore.
He can't see anymore, so they will never come back. What is this image? This image is the image of the pure the major hypocrite who acts Muslim, but he knows inside that is what was
the first few verses before it says what we're just making fun of the display.
We're only doing it for the worldly perks, we don't want to cause problems with the new manifestation of the love audiences, right. And so they use the lights to benefit them immediately. And so a lot turned off the lights on them, the lights of their heart, no more like that. They cannot hear the truth anymore. They hear it with their ears, but they don't hear it in a way that will benefit them at heart. They are dead. The truth meaning mute, they cannot see the truth anymore. Do they know or knew at that point in time, they are blind me they cannot see it anymore whatsoever. Follow the ladder June so they will not come back come back meaning what meaning they
were there. These people were believers at one point, and they left altogether.
And then our last agenda tells us that these types of people will service these people that sold their Dean for dunia because they didn't want to put up with the pressure. These people live lives that are miserable. Don't under appreciate the man because he said they lit the torch and I wasn't to go into the fire. It doesn't say that. He says that Obama will be naughty. He did away with there might as if to say that the hypocrite is still feeling the heat of the fire kindled. He's still choking from the smoke of that flame. It's just the light is gone. So all the harmonies and all the benefits he gets deprived when he thought he was going to get the benefit of Islam and not be harmed
by anything. But then the scene moves on now to another image. And I wish we could pay attention to this image of it. Because this is most likely what our battle will be. And the Battle of our children will be day and night grown up in this country where our faith is threatened from multiple angles at the exact same time Alice's elkus ie the minister failure to
note taking bit carefully. Over here is another example the torch examples the matrix or the example of a rainfall that comes
but this rainfall is not regular rainfall. This is rainfall in a storm, a thunderstorm a lightning storm for any distance darkness, what are woke up and thunder and lightning that causes them to place their fingers in their ears out the fear of death. And Allah is fully encompassing of the disbelievers. You can do both we'll
look at the CDH the light of the whitening the flash of white ink almost snatches away their silence
coolibah our fee, every time they see it bright rings, they work towards it with the family power and when it goes dark again, they stand still they stopped walking, they stop proceeding towards the lights.
And if one wishes you'll take away their light altogether. Overall.
This is the example so have you understood of the lesser immigrants, the one that is there? He has the man in his heart but he has hypocrisy crawling at and so it's a back and forth struggle for the survival of his heart. You see a lesson down the road and from the sky to give it to your heart the same way he sent down the rain to give life to the earth elements like give me an array full but the experience of the disease part the experience of the hypocrites and that came down it doesn't just want your work to sprout no it contains thunder and lightning and and darkness, the darkness the confusion because he's not able to receive information directly. He has a stream he has a voice and
the thunder means the fear. He is fearful because he's he does not have strong email he doesn't believe in
every single thing is gonna finish them every cries against them every year they're always panicking and in his images lightning you know that why is that why are the flashes of light
The light of guidance that this hypnotherapy can still recognize very clearly, that this is the true. But then as soon as that light turns on
and off who ever saw, it almost snatches away their eyesight. You ever seen someone is able to take a really good photograph at the exact moment, when lightning flashes at nighttime, it looks like it's daytime.
It looks exactly like the time you think is the sun is out when they catch that photograph in the right room. Likewise, for this person describing
everything becomes crystal clear to him for a second. Every time he sees that clarity measure fee they work to, it's so clear, it hurts. It almost blinds him from our brightness.
And he works towards it. Then it goes dark again, calm, he standstill. So he started going with his email. Okay, versus Why does the first season Okay, I need to do this. No, this is too tough, right? And he starts trying to get it or he stops being comfortable with that, even after he got the explanation. So this is not a white matter. But yes, demand goes up and down. But this is talking about the flashes of light that we all have in a bad mood in a bad mood. When the relatives you have clarity for a few moments, that clarity getting removed from your life very fast, shouldn't scare you, this is not normal, this is not fine. It's supposed to cause you to panic.
And so I must have done that right with
the revelation. But there's a storm, and it caused all of this issue. And if a well wishes like that,
if a loved one did, he could do away with your earring. And he'll make the one the first category, the category that is completely in the darkness. So these flashes of lightning and the less and less until you stop seeing it all together. How it's helping us don't have these moments of clarity in our lives in normal volume otherwise, and you just wish you can lock yourself up on that moment. But it only lasts for like seven minutes or seven days or something that is what a blessing. The old adage tells you by the way, that
you swear you're not lucky. You have to get it out or do we get through a man out they cannot coexist. If Allah wishes, you'll allow it to
And so this was the second thing to discuss with the lockup, right be attentive to yourself, especially in the age when there are herbs to step away from your right when your Islam is looked at as a burden. So when your Islam is growing and strengthening around the world, so naturally, there's going to be challenges in opposition.
The pseudo Baba goes on, and I'll finish this in the chairman attendance. So the doctor then moves on to mentioning three stories to finish up the first juice, the first 20 pages, if you will. I want you to understand the logical progressions of
these stories are the story of Adam and
then the story of me. And then the story of
why these stories.
And this concludes the first
hour that is introducing the human beings revisiting their origins are getting up.
And running, Sarah is created and placed in German, and it is said to him each word ever you want, except this one. And likewise for us in his lab, the doors of halen are far wider than the items that are held.
And whoever sees it as the opposite, that Islam is restrictive. These are Lenin's problems that need to be fixed.
And so eat for many people, except this one tree.
Right, but you don't have to always yearn for at the money ceram after a long conspiracy by shavonne he fell and he actually so he slipped because of his weakness. The human being longs for what he can have his curiosity killed the cat as they say.
And so he was tricked. And immediately he sought forgiveness from law. And so he made a mistake, the same way shape. I made a mistake patronage, but shame on him. said I don't have to. I'm better than him. He was arrogant and defiance and his mistake, and the morality Sarah is a different type. He made a mistake out of weakness, not defiance. And immediately he ran back and I elevated him because of his
So that's the first story. Then we move on to Swati same thing. They have the same DNA as we have the same DNA, the same impulse of the same wants to see the experience as added on a smartphone, all of our problems.
And so they were given tests, and they failed many tests, but they failed defined. Every time a command came to them, they did not want to follow the command. They did not say we must have a 71 that we've had in Korea, we told them to enter the city and do X, Y and Z they do the opposite of what poo
So they went in and said, what we don't want to say, what did we do wrong? So they would say they added their playing games or what I mean so they added a little handfuls of barley seeds or like an old degradable
greens or ovals Alonzo dances with gender and enter the city that I granted you on your faces meaning in the millions to Allah did granted in that trial. They edited backwards they entered with their release one slide into the city of analysis. We told them slaughter county we really want a sweater a cabinet we don't really know what the cow just thought to any cow. Nobody ever confused about the calves that this coward What color is
Mercy is that he kept giving them another another another chance though they were making it harder on themselves. And they finally slaughtered it, though they were not they were hardly going to do it. They were planning on doing
defiance in everything.
That's one scenario
that you have now just met in Medina. How will you react to that?
And then we move on now to the complete opposite images.
Who are boo boo boo.
And Ibrahim is Lord tested him with certain commandments. And he accomplished them all. He perfected them all. He passed every single one of the tests with flying colors. Unbelievable.
yes, sir. And the series is restricted.
If it were disrespectful, you're not allowed to speak with certainly domestic right.
glorify the name of your Lord. This is important but service respectable. He would say I do service on law.
slug through her son. Yes, sir. Build the cabin history. Leave your family millon desert. Yes, sir. circumcise yourself by yourself. At 80 years old with the blade of an axe, the province of
Santa Monica do he circumcised himself? At 80 years old with what he had when he was just the blade? The metal part or the rock part of an axe? a rugged blade? Yes, sir. We are human.
And they want
Fulfill, because every single thing I told him to do he fulfilling forget slaughtering a cow, I will slaughter my son. This is the difference now, because he understood now that it's not about what is being commanded. I'm a Muslim, by definition, I surrender. I don't have a liberality I don't have the option to objective.
It's not about what you're commanded. But it's about who is the commander and in the story.
And that's the first two sentences about those three seats. As if to say to you now Which one will you be? Will you be that person that tries his best? And it doesn't make up excuses. And it doesn't make up terms to surrender to his liking. Like many people do. I see.
I saw him drinking tea or coffee. And
I said to me, are you kidding?
You're right. He said, Oh my goodness. I must tell you what happened. He said I didn't have so who I told him Who in the world said you need to have some go too fast.
Because he thinks is enough to worship a lovely parents children. I hear about people that don't pray at all they say because I can't get a break. If you would have just asked your employer, you'll realize you are entitled to 215 minute breaks and an eight hour day. Break is what's the point of break. I can't have cuz you're at work.
Who are you following Who are you lying to yourselves his terms. So it says,
look, the entire second juice is nothing but rules, detail rules, technicalities, as if to say these were their test. Now, here's your story. These are your tests now, which of the two categories you're going to be
there's the rulings of the courts the rulings on the character the rulings on their on their rulings or their rulings on she had all of that
in a second.
I hope now you see the corrections when we step back and see why the story runs the way it does. This is the origin of man, this is the nature of the believer, these are the two samples
he fulfilled all the things you need to try to fulfill all of yours and if you slip it away
and then the end of the document is just so beautiful.
Belonging to almost everything in the heavens and everything in the earth.
And if you hide what's inside themselves, or even display you have single meaning that a loved one
is also narrated by the architects
they came to the profits of a
worker and they fell to their knees they fell to their knees and they said yaroslava could lift now remember when we were given duties obligations rules that we can find handled with Jad and mathematically with now there is some something we can never have
that judges of what's happening inside like even our thoughts you are accountable for
you know, the Province of
Canada everything come full circle, actually use that and it's a coup.
De severe and Mr. Slater, do you want to say as a nice to see, we hear you the instructions. We hear your love, but we're not normally we're not religious? Are you gonna do that? No. Did we I came in
and he said to the story of the meeting
before the rule at the end, this was a Baba you're gonna do a video So indeed.
He says better to lose America now.
No, just say we will hear and we will just just surrender.
You know, that
when they said it, and there his house became fluid with its meaning. Five, okay.
Yes, Oh, yes. Oh, we don't even know how we're going to do this. That's fine. Okay, we agree to the terms we are your slaves, you are automatically fine. When they said that a law of syllogism is a toughy. He reduced.
And it said like he said,
We don't kill.
The messenger has deleted everything that came out.
And these believers were genuine. They all believed as well that the next guy says
a month is not very good to be under capacity. We were just testing you to see whether you want to committed and then we were showing you our mercy that we will not hold you to something that is beyond
you will have what you actually earn. And then against you is what you chose to carry over burgers. There are two other items I just want to pick out randomly, if you will, from sources to help you when you read it in this greater context. Now. The first idea is the very first time a lot so agenda calls out to the believers this was an element that is what
led to a
rough translation or you who haven't believed you say you believe here's the condition. Don't talk to the boss Off
you go you sit there and listen to you listen for instructions. You will not be able to pass the test.
Unless you go and you sit with your
wife, you take instructions without any baggage coming into the conversation without any conditions for yourself. No, don't even speak to them. Like you have to see that is your own agenda before you can actually treat him like that. Don't speak to him like he's not normal human being is human, but not exceptional.
The Sahaba You know, when they fell to their knees, and
that means you represent all the time, you could be in love, you never got bothered by the Sahaba treated differently. This is a rendering instructions from a law but the if,
likewise, this idea when it came down, they would treat the problem very differently. They asked the ambassador of
right, they asked me who's bigger, you are the province of
the mental age.
So in our best, God, how we respond to father better who ECMO meeting me. What No,
he's bigger than me. But I was born first. I just I can't speak casually about for a while.
And the other is, a lot of our content speaks in the middle of the rules. And honestly, he says what he does the underrepresented if you can't fast, and if you're sick, and you have this problem with that. The problem with that is that if your slave my slaves asked you about Muhammad, for me, I am here, I will respond to the caller when he calls, Allah is with you through those tests through those burdens of the ship, he will make it easier, so long as you agree to his terms on your soul. It's such a beautiful life when you just single out the direction of the orders.
was a man, that was a flavor of an open center.
He used to drink and used to the solid times and he was rich, because he used to take advantage of whoever was stuck for money, he would give you the money and take back more.
And so he was alone. He used to hang out spend, you know, entertaining nights has been measured in the calories at the time. And so one time they got drunk or whatever it was and it fell asleep. And he missed the sauna. And so the Jedi had the surgery girl in the palace, she had one of the incense burners with colds on it. And she I guess aggravated or whatever else she threw the jungle in the coal mines close. So he woke up. She said to me, you know, that was that was the fire, the dooney energy couldn't handle the fire.
So he almost kind of said that this is the data I'm going to tell you my life and he got up in the middle. And he gave away all his money to declare his silver even though you don't have to, by the way, but he wanted to show on love how true he was to such a point. This is the reference on what is near to us when we can get a hold of Archie and the Lady Maria. Marina are working one day. And they found this man who was filthy rich yesterday, sleeping on a brick, a brick of school with nothing on the side. And he said so they said to him, nobody gives up anything for love surrenders like that. Except that a lot conferences,
He said to them,
he made me pleased with what I've experienced, you feel bad for me. I'm the happiest guy in the world. I have what money cannot buy who
it is that all they can collect. I have access to a well known access to this book, I can understand it and I can enjoy it. Why? Because I did not stop and go buy this land. I gave me food. This is the storage. Please add to that image you're gonna make your assignment with your family until our last as long as you know that life is good for us and put us to that and he knows that that is better for us. You know what teach us and benefit us is that what she has taught us and it's really us with anything that would distract us from him alone. I mean, we are lucky enough for us diabetes and East for us a way to diagnose male life or just protect us from the whispers of our souls. And the
hesitation of our equals our level of technical solutions on it and his whispers may or may not because of those that define the challenge the level of meaning of
