him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness. And we turn to Allah for protection from the evil whispers within ourselves and from the consequences of our evil deeds.
For remember, Allah guides when can ever lead astray and remember, Allah leads the straight line can ever guide and we testify that no one is worthy of our worship and our devotion with Allah alone without any partners, the true supreme King, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed in truth, his prophet, and its service and its Messenger whom Allah has no incentive and mercy to the world.
Oh, you have the man Oh, you are believed. Commit yourself to the Taqwa of Allah to remain conscious of Allah is diligent and obedient to Him as best as you can, and do not be caught off guard by the end of your life caught off guard by that, except you are in a state of complete and total submission to Allah state of Islam.
To begin moving towards the conclusion of the advice of Luqman Hakim Lachman, the wise are the Allahu Anhu to his son.
We concluded last week with him telling his son after in joining him to prayer and the promotion of good and the prevention of evil and patients throughout, he said to him, Allah to fire the colonists. Do not turn your cheek away from the people don't turn away from the people your face your cheek and arrogance. And we spoke last week about how this can happen. After promoting good and preventing evil and leaving resistance, or receiving backlash these could develop in you a superiority complex
when addressing the people,
but I wish to revisit the second half of the implication here, do not turn your cheek, turn your cheek away from the people are turned to the people with your Jeep while being addressed by the people. So not just when you're giving advice, but when you're being addressed or advised by others.
This is extremely important that the believer Allah azza wa jal wants us to try our very best when we deliver advice, we deliver it in the best form.
But when you are receiving advice, you are open to receiving advice in any form. That's the way it should be. No matter who it comes from, and how it's packaged. Even if it's in a way that's inappropriate, you should then look for the benefit. In those words, that's what you should be focused on. That's what you should be looking for.
Because people, even sometimes your opponents among people, can see in you what you can't see about yourself.
That's why they say if you want to find your flaws, ask a wise elder, or an honest friend, or a staunch enemy. Because the enemy may hate you so much that he investigates after you to point out your flaws for you. Whereas you don't look for your own flaws, though your enemy looks for you. So you can actually capitalize on that by using them, whoever they may be as your mirror. And in general, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the movement the believer is the mirror of his brother, not just your enemies, of course, they should. A mirror shows you the spot you can see on yourself your blind spot. And so you should seek from people an opportunity to find
out about yourself, your blind spots.
Even if those people are younger than you even if they're less knowledgeable than you even if they're less practicing than you even if they're inferior in any way to you. And it's amazing how Allah azza wa jal humbled His prophets like Musa alayhis salam by transcending him, someone inferior to him like a husband to teach him what he doesn't know. And you find someone like today, man, I think he's being taught by a bird who is inferior to him.
him things him I have to remind everybody, I have come across some fact that you you don't know about I know things you don't know.
And so we should be very careful whenever we are addressed by people to not be resistant
and to not be focused on the betterment that benefit you can find them that because this is not from the people. This is actually a lot Zoa gel who caused this person to be a conduit, a pathway for this advice to come to you. And if you reject that you're rejecting it from Allah subhanho wa Taala that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, A Yuma avid in Tahoe love no Everton fee for he and Emma to meet Allah is a delay. Any servant of God that comes in is approached by some exhortation some reminder and his religion. It doesn't have to be is in a hadith, it could be someone pointing out to you something that will bring you closer to your religion.
I reminded that benefits your religion then this is a pure gift from Allah that was delivered to you in in rural Kabila be shocked if a person receives it grateful how to receive it gratefully. By listening to it, accepting it, acting upon it, if he receives it with things with gratitude, what it Allah He said from Allah who I was going to and if he doesn't,
can a true jetten mean Allah He Ali, then it becomes one of the arguments the proofs that Allah will hold against him. Leah's dad behind it meant was that Allahu Allah, he has a hopper and a reason for him to be increased in his sinfulness and a reason for him to be the recipients the subject of even more anger Allah to become angrier with this person. So when someone comes to you with any sort of advice when they address you, even if the advice is incorrect, you still want to say is like a local area for upholding your duty at least then explain yourself. So you don't discourage people from sharing advice in the future. Tell them exactly well Calum for your VEDA for your protective
jealousy of Islam. And the Muslims. This is a good thing. We have to promote that culture that we accept and we listen, even if it's things we don't just turn away when we are addressed by the people. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his
behavior and his perfect conduct shows us another implication of this word, that may not be the primary meaning, while episodic kalimna Don't turn your cheek away from the people, but it could be implied also, look, man may have meant it as well, which is not Don't be arrogant and turn away from the people. But don't turn away from the people in a way that could be seen as arrogant.
What do we mean by that? When you talk to people turn to them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can either tell temperature man, inshallah Allah tell me the of the perfect character of the Prophet Populum. The Sahaba say when he used to turn us the turn entirely, he will give you his undivided attention and turn to you fully when speaking to you. Because of the manners that are of course very challenged in our day and age, by the many different distractions in the world. And the main different distractions of our devices. Sometimes you don't even have to turn your body come on, you need to look up from your phone. That's why people say that when you respect someone get the
phone off the table. Because even having the phone facedown on the table means what? The only reason I'm talking to you right now is because the phone hasn't rung yet the reasons on the table is because if it rings I'm going to take or I'm going to look at it. And so this concept of empty fat is shows people make people feel like you consider them unimportant, which is the behavior of the arrogant and so don't be distracted, be collected in all that you do when you're in something, be in it with your entirety, be mindful in it. Try to minimize this behavior we need to all work on this.
Don't turn your cheek away from the people in arrogance, or even resembling the people that are arrogant.
And then look man said to him one while assumptions of the model don't turn your cheek away, and don't walk on this earth like you own it. Don't walk on the earth Mara Han means like exultantly as if you're some royalty as if you own planet Earth. This is like the other verse and totally throw on Allah as though justice will come she will have the moral high don't walk on the earth like this exultantly in neck Atlanta critical aerobar Orleans have Luca Geobella Pula. Because you will not puncture the Earth. You're not going to stomp through the Earth. Stop acting like especially tough guy you're not going to puncture the earth or learn some local develop hula and you will never ever
grow to be the height of a mountain.
Allah azza wa jal telling you these two inanimate objects on top of you and under you, you are confined between these two and by them.
You're not strong enough to put a hole in the ground
and you're not tall enough to match that pile of rocks over there the mountains. So walk the earth like a slave, like a servant of God walk the earth with humility
and have to live up to the regime of Allah used to say about this. He says I dream to live in the Adam cave as I kept burrow analogy out of the way NEMA, who are shifnal to mentor Robbia This is how to human beings walk on this earth on the face of the earth with arrogance, when they are nothing but a handful of dirt from it.
and what case I kept bar and how did he become arrogant? And he is the same person that he says to intend to Encino who Arca that's a little bit of sweat sweat caused him distinct. This could mean in your perspiration or it could mean that you sweat and die really fast and all of a sudden your bodies are decomposing to interior who Arca he says V busca. And he is bothered by a little bug.
What's up to know who sharper and that he can get choked up at any moment you swallow something down the wrong pipe. It's very fragile, right the weak pipe and the throat goes down to your stomach and then you just get choke one quick detour of any bit of food or water getting into your lungs into your lungs. One shout out one moment of choking could be the end of you like how could you get arrogant
and so look man was telling you son don't walk the earth like arrogant people walk here don't struggle, construct and pound and you know demand the tension on your walk. And then he concluded look man continues to say in Allaha la you should call the motel in Lahore. Allah does not love people that are more 10 They struck
peace with arrogance that for who and they are boastful they want to call attention to themselves they want people to have all eyes on them in hola hola. You have bucola Metallian for her. May we never be of them. Allahumma Amin I will be general the Allah Tala Andrew in the Battle of Osho. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he saw the ads that were in front of them, he lifted his sword to the Sahaba and said, Who will bear my sword today the sword of the messenger of allah sallallahu, hatha yoga. And so everyone was eager to carry it. And then he said many who has a safety we have people who will take this sword and live up to it, and uphold it to do right.
So people became intimidated to disappoint so they all put their hands down they will retracted their their volunteer ship. But that will degenerate into the Alonso ever do Jana students that I will be out of Salalah. And so he took the prophets of Allah Allah he'll film sword, and he pulled out a red fabric, then of sorts. And he tied it around his head to call attention to himself a bright color. He didn't want to shy away from anything on that day. He used to call that as well. But to note the the, the head wrap of that, that one of us is going to die. And I'm not, I'm not afraid to be that one. And so he took this sword and tied him this red band around his head and he
strutted forward structure like an arrogant person. But he wasn't doing it in arrogance. He was doing it to intimidate those who came confronting Allah and His messenger who came to defy Allah and His messenger. And so the prophet from Allah who I didn't tell them said to those who have you see how he's walking his inner hand Misha tune, you will be able Hala who in that he has an older Allah hates when people walk like that, except in the likes of this
procession in the likes of this scenario.
And that is why Imam Malik in Medina Rahula. One time he saw a man in the city among the Muslims and arrogant man walking with an arrogant piece.
And he said to him Mr. Olympia
and Allah Yatra who have the Misha Illa Bina for Fein. Don't you know that Allah despises that someone walked like that, except between the two ranks between the two ranks of you two front rows of the opposing armies, basically, the battle writes, Allah hates it in any other situation. And so the man was taken aback, he was insulted that melachim dinar would speak to him like this in front of the people. And so he said to him, MSRE funny. Like, I'll lose translation. Do you have any idea who I am? Like, how dare you speak to me like that? Like you couldn't tell me to win the fight or you couldn't like mind your business? How can you speak to me like that? Don't you know who I am?
And he said to him, I do know who you are. He says a one who cannot fight when a murderer that your origins was a drop of scattered fluid, referring to the fluid of the men.
He said why our pillow cap G federal pudiera and your n state
It will be a rockin Karkat. Right from decomposing flesh. What Anabaena who moustache middle era, and between those two states, you carry filth, you have feces defecation inside of you, don't you, you have still inside of you.
And so the man has kind of broken by these words. And he says an ARB attorney, our attorney have called Malefor.
Like he's as if he's saying is the first time someone has ever properly identified me. Someone has ever humbled me about my origin. To think about that you walk with the waist that's inside our stomachs at this very moment.
We walk with it around. And if our love prevents us from
removing it prevented exit from our body, one of two things is going to happen, right? Either we're going to die, or we're going to be rushed off to a surgical table and they're gonna have to cut US Open. And our whole long list of complications are going to ensue from there. Thinking about this concept, the origins of the human being
is a very Quranic methodology. Allah azza wa jal tells us in South Africa, that the man who he is trying to humble his companion and we should try to humble ourselves. Before we tried to humble people. He said to his companion, I can fall into the lovey Hala Academy into robbing so many no prophetic don't matter work our doula, how could you deny the One who created you from there, and then out of a drop of fluid, a drop of semen and then turned you into a man
and so we must always remember that the prophet from Allah Allah Allah, He will tell them being who he was.
The greatest of humanity said to us in Allah to Allah, Oh Ha ha until our bottle, Allah the Most High instructed, inspired in me to relate to all of you, that we must all be humble and no person should brag in the face of another person, and no person should feel they have a right to transgress against any person for like, if
you want to wear nice clothes, you want to wear nice shoes, feel free. But don't ever think that you have any edge on any person by virtue of that any person is any less significant of you because where they're from what they wear, how much they have,
because a speck of that will prevent us from going to paradise. That's when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said nice close by Jews that Allah is beautiful. He loves beauty but arrogance, which a speck of it will bar you from Jana is to be little people and reject their advice to reject the truth they come with.
And if that is not enough to scare a person then remember this last Hadith before I sit down, I will relay Allah Allah one said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
be now Raju rune once there was a man yam chi for Latin he was walking dressed in a nice suit basically, MCP dressed in a nice cloak and my suit.
More genuine bien FC conceited with how nice he looks. Murad Julian rocks roxo having combed his hair so he has his hair set up nowadays you say with some jello or something or a nice haircut? He has a sharp his hair is sharply comb nicely comb conceited because of the SUTI has on yet Adolphe machete
strutting in his piece strutting in his walk in herself Allah who will be suddenly Allah Zilla, Jen, Casa Vicki means caused the earth to swallow him. The scholars said this is this is not mean that the person was swallowed off the face of the earth when he died. This means that all of a sudden he found himself in the earth in his grave. And then a very specific punishment for struggling on the earth for acting like you can puncture the Earth, as the verse mentioned, will be applied to him in his grave. All of a sudden he found himself under the earth, cause of Allah will be for who is a gentle gentle fill out of de la yo new piano. And so he continues being indigestion even the word in
resonates from it. What's happening here, he's being shaken. He's being shaken down into the earth further and further referring to the torment he received. He continues plummeting, plummeting plummeting in the earth, until the day of judgment was.
So may Allah protect us and you from the ugliness of arrogance, and from the strength of arrogance and the blindness that comes with arrogance, and the torment and destruction that is the end result of arrogance. Allahumma Amina Ali heard there was stuff about all the.
hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala millinery Avada I should Allah you
Hey Lola the hula Sharika who should on number Hamedan Aveda who want to be you who are solo
we will return to the last statement the last verse in the advice of local man about the Allahu Anhu in a coming portable in sha Allah to Allah
to address the item at hand and we had prayed alluded to or begun discussing last week, which is the next door property for our building now going under contract. Many of you know the story of this masjid and that Allah azza wa jal had driven us out of our Masjid with a fire
to grab the semester four times its size, and a parking lot told four times as many cars but due to the distance of people's work, places and the tightness of their of their lunch breaks 120 cars By Allah's grace is not enough to fill the masjid or serve the community. And though they need to pray July needs to come with their family members to free Joomla and we will learn much more than just the Joomla operators.
And so closing on this property next door means a number of things of them as in sha Allah to Allah over 200 cars will be able to attend the Juma prayers here. And may Allah accept from all those that can help make this possible. Allahu Allah. I mean, it was not in our plans, it was not in our decision. The man listed the property and so we are stuck between a rock and a hard place. We either purchased it now or only Allah knows what the next tenants will have. And so after bargaining him down from over a million dollars to $700,000. Now, we have just gone under contract to provide him and he's giving us an interest repayment plan over 10 years, that inshallah the pizzeria that will
become an endowment that will become a wealthy will pay itself off once the down payment discovered the $300,000 that we have to have before the end of December. This is what our contract is with him before the end of December, we'll complete the $300,000 that we need to close on this property.
And I pray that this is the last major historic step in the building of this facility. And we can move on to what we are most invested in which is building the people in spite of the facility may Allah make that a reality Allah Hammami But speaking of historic moments and historic expansion, a person could not help but draw a parallel this is exactly how and we feel honored. This adds to the excitement of it of this big day in sha Allah pulling these two properties together and opening them on each other. When the Prophet from Allah Allah he will tell them entered Medina was a historic day. It was a humongous Day everyone is celebrating and everyone is singing and a flat. Think about
it like a sloth, the camel of the prophets of Allah Allah yo Selim is surrounded by crowds of people and he's telling the people get out of its way. Allah will inspire it's where to stop and it stops at a particular place. And the people around the people are wondering where's this place going to be at the community is going to be centered around and Allah had it destined that it's stopping the police that became as Mr. De Novo the prophets Masjid Ali Salado salaam, in eventually the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walks over to one of his companions who owned the garden next door to the masjid.
The parallel is very interesting. A garden right next door to the masjid and he asked him how much would you sell this garden for? They want to buy it from this man collect the money to buy it from the demand to expand the message of the Prophet full of love audios.
And so as one of the young scholars he says you can only imagine like the man was was probably confused by the question like What do you mean? How much am I selling this for? Like you can just almost see him there for flex like Rasul Allah we give you our lives we promise that if you come to Medina, nobody's going to touch you. We will all die down to the last man before we let anyone hurt you. We gave you our blood basically, on demand whenever you see at racing for gender, I'm going to hold back one of my garden
even if the dearest garden to me and so the man said, O Messenger of Allah LAN of Maputo mana who Illa mean Allah azza wa jal.
We will not accept payments for this garden except from Allah subhanho wa taala. And it became a lock for the mustard Amina it became an expansion of the Mezcal who would who would everything like that now 14 141 years later,
we will be sitting here saying Man How fortunate this man is.
Every record, every bowing and every sujood every act of frustration like every dua that is made, every demo and tear that falls in that masjid and what message it is not any message. This is the message of the Prophet of Allah aliotta love all of that. This fortunate man is going to find that in front of him on the most difficult day on the day of judgment.
And so these are the opportunities at times a person makes it they make it with Allah they become a celebrity in the
heavens with Allah azza wa jal because of one transaction, there was just like you know Earth man or the Allah, Allah Allah, if you think about on the Prophet SAW, Selim was also in Medina and the Muslims could not find access, easy access to water. And so he said to the people, who would buy the aroma, who would buy the well of Roma, which was owned and then partially owned by a Jewish man, and it was very difficult for the Muslims to find water. So he said, Who would buy this? Well, for who then who who mean hack, and then we Muslimeen. And their share of it would be like any other Muslims share, meaning to buy it to give it up, and we all get to use it.
And so Earth men have not found as you all know, he steps up and he buys this well with a fortune of money.
Speaking in materialistic terms, of course, and without asking to be celebrated without asking to be recognized without asking to be honored. He buys it and he just walks off, can you imagine like with his own bucket, and he just gets to the back of the line like everybody else, won't be allowed to Elanco.
And then imagine since that incident, a year pass, two 510 years pass, 100 years passes, 500 years passed,
847 years pass, 1000 years pass, 1400 years pass, and then you go today to Medina, and you go to a neighborhood called a very high Zahedi. And you find this sign that says, This is the world
and you can drink from it. That was purchased from a Jewish man by Earth Madame Nafion, about the Allah to Allah and guava.
So may Allah azza wa jal allow with this pressure and this deadline, an ability for us to rise up and imitate a bit of their love for Allah and their ability to sacrifice and they're fortunate decisions that we continue to celebrate until today. May Allah allow us one of them and allow us to be acceptance worthy in his eyes, and be of those that are worthy of His pleasure Allah whom I mean, and may Allah reward them in ways that only he can Subhana Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
