00:00:07--> 00:00:08

In a country like China and

00:00:18--> 00:00:20

Russia Allah Allah,

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

Allah, Muhammad

00:00:24--> 00:00:27

Rasul Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:00:28--> 00:00:30

Allah, Allah.

00:00:33--> 00:00:46

Allah, Allah Hakuna Matata fell upon in hands of Jehovah in America like McAfee around manisa de la la de de Luna video of him. In namaha cara de

00:00:49--> 00:00:51

00:00:58--> 00:00:58

Halima

00:01:01--> 00:01:11

after praising the La Jolla Jen and seeking His guidance, and seeking help him to send His Highness Peace and blessings upon His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:13--> 00:01:26

We here at every Juma has our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talk to us to echo and remind each other the commandment, to be conscious of our lives, we translate our default to a law of fear for local law, certainly a part of that as well.

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

And we read all throughout the Quran, that

00:01:32--> 00:01:50

depth what is the all or none, it is the most determining factor in the sight of Allah Subhana Allah Allah. Allah does not play favoritism and does not need our lives of dedication. It is about the tuffa above and before anything else, a law tells us

00:01:52--> 00:01:58

that when it comes to forgiveness, it is that those who fear Allah will calculate it will say

00:02:02--> 00:02:09

this is the one who's evil deeds get burned away by that tough walk. And his good deeds are made manifest a laws, though that tells us in

00:02:10--> 00:02:31

law only except from the moods of pain. That doesn't mean you have to be righteous to be accepted in your deeds. It means in the deeds that you're doing, like your repentance, for example, it needs to be conscious of a month for it to be accepted. And our motto was at the end of the day, at the conclusion that everyone that countless billions that will come on the Day of Judgment,

00:02:32--> 00:02:39

we will bring them force them to be present, how around the Hellfire athiya upon their knees,

00:02:41--> 00:03:04

a horrific image. And then a few hours later, he says what to managing the vena cava and then we will pull from them and then select the rescue those that have had support, they can rise they can be dismissed only them. And then we know as we all know that the month of Ramadan came to put us on an accelerated path to rehabilitate our topo to give us a chance

00:03:06--> 00:03:22

to finally develop that support if you haven't been doing it or to improve it if it's been deteriorating throughout the year. So have we Or have we not? Perhaps that is of the earliest topics to to reflect on with my brothers and my sisters today. In this final room,

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

what is the death of a loved one it's look like

00:03:27--> 00:04:04

you know there's been so many different reports from the idea of your level and we used to say the taqwa of Allah is for things these are interpretations by example, it's not an all inclusive definition. He says a poem in a Jedi to be fearful of the most great will concede and to act upon which he sat down with love and funny and to be content with that which is little tunnel vision. This is part of it with others to be satisfied. That was a little when you stare down to the bottom of here and always set to depart, always ready to be called out to leave this world and go and answer for your coupler.

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

Similarly, he mentioned three things he said the tough one, and you have

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

to be consistently obeyed and not disobeyed or not selectively obeyed.

00:04:17--> 00:04:25

To be consistently obeyed and not disobeyed when you've got to constantly be in mind and not neglected or forgotten.

00:04:26--> 00:04:34

And he said when you start off when you are and to constantly feel grateful to him and never deny His blessing. And

00:04:35--> 00:04:57

humility, the fact that Omar asks if they want to step up, speak so much to the fact that we should constantly be considering the metrics do I have to do I not checking for you? He said obey what is tough what he said, Omar? Allah has the Korea have you ever taken a 40 pack or walking on the road in this

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

case was gonna take us

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Now what do you do when that's your situation?

00:05:05--> 00:05:17

He said, he said I roll up my sleeves or it also could mean also my clothes. I keep my clothes close to my body, loose baggy clothing. I pull my clothes together. And I try my best to be careful, I'm vigilant.

00:05:18--> 00:05:34

He said send him back a template that was all about to walk this world vigilant to not be caught by the form because you will not believe your deen will lead basically, if you get caught up in this world too much and you're not fixated enough caught up enough into an on

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

the Quran also tells us that suffer comes in various levels. It's not like you have it or you don't have the topo of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:05:46--> 00:05:59

So for example, a loss of Baraka metallic says it was Elena Milan was Sadie Phillips raised to the forgiveness of your Lord is Jenna, or it removed your pain is the end of the I prepared for the people of huzzah pain. Let me describe some

00:06:00--> 00:06:26

of the description in this passage. It is very interesting. Allah says when Lavina is a family fracture people when they commit a great act of indecent z. And while I want to sell more on themselves, we're not just going to refer to major and minor sins, as some scholars have said, they can love they have enough trouble, they rebound love comes to mind to the people of tough work could be people that commit major sins, absolutely. But a love comes to mind they returned.

00:06:27--> 00:06:32

This is a level of suffering. But there are other levels of support

00:06:33--> 00:06:48

that are higher, that you are far less likely to fall into major sickness. And when you do fall into major sins, you make up for it in a way that made you better than you would have ever been had you not made this in this era of Scottish

00:06:49--> 00:07:34

justice in the Vienna Circle, the people will have suffered either ms seven, effeminate shape on the conductor. They are people that when a thought if I leave that word on translated for a second, from shape on comes their way to vector. So this is not someone who commits a fetish of huge enormity and advocate a lot their umbrella is someone who shavon comes at them with a plot and what is about it, but something discreet, you know like a lot, it just happens in passing it just fluid and just it's not a huge abrupt act. Everyone is kind of moving everyone it happens almost involuntary. Also a thought is falling apart into the losses a five five is basically an attack that happens at night.

00:07:35--> 00:08:14

So for the people in the garden, something came across over their garden or who met anyone discreetly while they were sleeping on muscle. So they were attacked while asleep. And so the thought is in this area what the people have tapped off. These are people that were totally blindsided like they took their precaution and they just so happened to get caught off guard that will happen. Even the greatest people will not be able to pinpoint every last weakness of this every last blind spot of business. This is just normal. But the point is it's a small blind sided stripe from shape on happens quickly and they wake up right away.

00:08:16--> 00:08:46

And what's beautiful also when you reflect on those two is like are off in any and Ronnie says they commit a lewd act these people have suffered as we'll call it level one. They remember a love. This is a bomb catches them off guard with a quick shock if you will blindsides them to vetco. They remember and it doesn't say Allah. It says if Allah is so present that the word remember is enough they remember everything of mine and the hereafter and death and the grave and the rights and responsibilities. They remember.

00:08:48--> 00:08:51

It doesn't need to be spelled out that are nothing to mind.

00:08:53--> 00:09:16

Whereas the first group you can commit an enormity and you remember that it's wrong for many different reasons. If you're at that level, you may regret but not for Allah in this room, the reputation that's what this person remembers. We need to get straight back with the program. That's another level of chocolate. Check with yourself very infrequently the fall into especially the major cities. There's an even higher level of support,

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

which they thought doesn't even blindside you shaitan actually runs from

00:09:23--> 00:09:23

inside the

00:09:25--> 00:09:46

Canaries. This is like a body that the profits of a model I need to send them said he liked to have Macaca whoa how hasty you are on the remarkable man at the egg is such a fan of the Frenchie. Illa Seneca Gen shavon does not find you on a road, except that he about phases or takes a different road other than your road.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

And so this is the level that not just the robot, she thought comes back to some people, not all people to the degree of your Tableau is the degree of the access that shavon has on you

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

Some people have such a level that shaytan himself flees from them may or may not allow us to find these ranks and help us better measure accurately our progress in this month.

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

handy dandy recital setup.

00:10:28--> 00:10:28

So

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

I wish to just conclude with two important

00:10:33--> 00:11:02

metrics also for our support. The first of them, how do you know which one of these levels you belong to? This is theory, but how do I know if it applies to me or not? Well, the easy answer is asks a father. In what sense shavon will not come at someone who's at level three, and tell them to believe in religion. So I find this more tactful than that she thought has better strategy than that she found studies you and sees where you're at and suggests what's possible

00:11:03--> 00:11:04

to zoom

00:11:05--> 00:11:12

in upon certain people imperfect justice, to push them slowly, gradually off the edge. That's what Stefan does.

00:11:15--> 00:11:30

And so if you're say, God is telling you miss prayer, that means that's your level you're at, you're at the level where you can actually miss prayer, because if it wasn't likely for you to do it, he wouldn't have suggested it. If he tells you miss, pray in your message, and that's your level.

00:11:32--> 00:11:40

If he tells you, whatever it may be, ask yourself where what is shaitan suggesting to me, that will tell you a lot about your level of

00:11:41--> 00:11:47

the second thing is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he instructed us to have tough what

00:11:48--> 00:12:05

he gave us two very important components to ensure we have and we continue to have he said he took the number Hykeham I couldn't have the support the love wherever and whenever you are, then these are the two components. He said what attribute is seen as an asset.

00:12:06--> 00:12:47

And follow up quickly an evil deed with a good one right after it, it will erase it. You see, your tough one doesn't just go away after I'm Ivana Schaefer doesn't just come back after him above, it is your decrease good deeds, that less than our taqwa and open the doors for paper. And so whenever you fall into an evil D, replacing with a good deed, it will erase it, it will compensate for it, it'll catch up your fortress walls. And the more you do good deeds, the more tough Will you have. And that is why you have the heightened beautiful state that you even feel and experience in the month of Ramadan. It's not out of thin air, it's not just the Baraka of the month, it is the worship

00:12:47--> 00:12:59

that you do that makes you listening this month. And so extend as much as you can after the month when I say that as the last thing he said was harder to NASA

00:13:00--> 00:13:05

and deal with people in the best man with the best character

00:13:06--> 00:13:27

and that is how not to build your tough love but that is how to measure your example. One of the greatest ways to measure your tougher is to measure how you build a last creation Are you logged down unless creation or do you see beyond them that this is a must creation and so I must deal with them the way Allah wants not the way I am.

00:13:29--> 00:13:35

And in particular check Allah's creation that you're not afraid of that meaning you don't feel retaliation from

00:13:37--> 00:13:54

the poor person is going to come humiliate you for not spending money. That's one of the signs of the people stuck was they spend on the board your children are not people that can fight back with you totally till the punch for punch. Check how just in theory you are between your children of the greatest signs of having good character with a monster.

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

I remember I was reviewing last week the

00:14:01--> 00:14:01

the concept of

00:14:03--> 00:14:42

recreating ourselves and checking using the right metrics to see where we are with a lot closer this I'm gonna knock that I love his wife, she said reported so many things about him, and how concerned he always was about his dealings with people. She says so many reports, but one of them she said that he cried so much that I said to myself, that he was in the night he was crying in a corner in his home, that in the morning, the people will not have that buddy. He's gonna die tonight from all this time. He's not gonna make it through the night. And I said he used to say about him. I used to never believe that someone could cry in their sleep until I married.

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

like he'd be praying and he would cry and fall asleep and wake up and continue crying from how difficult he was on himself upon whom he even offered to divorce. He said, Listen, I'm not going to be able to balance between the rights of illustration, personally, domestically and outside. You want to go you can go on

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

You're not gonna be able to handle it. And she insisted to be with him. He said that give me all of your gold because this gold your parents took it. And it wasn't necessarily fair taxes until need to put it back into the Muslim Treasury. It was extremely difficult. But he was tougher on himself than on her. She says I thought he was gonna die at night. And I said, What are you doing to yourself? Why?

00:15:20--> 00:15:24

He said, Oh, Fatima, Prophet, Malik was her name, I took command and this

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

without wanting to.

00:15:28--> 00:16:01

And I did want to be in charge. He says, and then I thought to myself about all the poor people that have nothing, and the orphans that no one even acknowledges and the widow woman whose husbands have died, and the husbands that are captives or the men that are captive only at war, he said, and the elderly man who has lots of children and very little wealth, and he says, and I realize that Allah will ask me about every one of them. That is my lesson with every one, they cannot come after me. But

00:16:02--> 00:16:06

Allah will ask me about every single one of them. He said, when he asked me Do

00:16:08--> 00:16:31

I need to send them and I fear that my opponent like their advocate, their lawyer, against me will be the prophets often, because he's the one that told us showed us what it looks like to take care of the poor, the needy, the hungry, the oppressed. He said, My opponent would be the prophet SAW Selim Takashi to ended with Alicia fossati. For him to NFC.

00:16:32--> 00:16:37

He said that I feared that I would have no argument that could ever stand in front of the

00:16:38--> 00:17:18

other side of the courtroom talked about a lot. What could I say that whatever, outdo what he says, He says, so I felt bad for myself. And so this is why I cry. And so this is of the good metrics for how you deal with people that are in a place of vulnerability at your hands, whether in an argument whether in a family, in a community, whatever it may be in some of the greatest ways. So May Allah make us of those who don't let our walls or fortresses fall apart, continuing to patch them after Ramadan help with assess our topical correctly for the most important date for the last day. And may Allah help us be there for his creation as best we can.

00:17:29--> 00:17:30
