00:02:23--> 00:02:41

a hotel on a day like this would be preparing a hot water day like this would be very, very tough. extremely tough, because we have so many occasions, so many events, so many things are on many people, you know, on people's minds. I'm sure some of us are thinking about things that are happening overseas,

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

the

00:02:44--> 00:02:44

long

00:02:47--> 00:02:54

suffering of our dear brothers and sisters in Syria

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

and the recent developments,

00:02:59--> 00:03:03

the recent brutal attack on the people of Gaza

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

and the many casualties

00:03:10--> 00:03:47

that fell down. In addition to that, you know, yesterday, people were celebrating Thanksgiving. This is the beginning of the history year, tomorrow is the day of Ashura. And, and the list goes on and on and on. And, of course, many families get together. So it's a great occasion, this long weekend, people get together. And there are a lot of social and family values that need to be addressed. So it is very hard to pick a topic. And I know that no matter what I talk about, someone is going to come and say, Oh, you should not say anything about this or that.

00:03:49--> 00:04:02

However, since this is my first football in this history year, right, there has been a topic on my mind for a long time, I didn't anticipate that I will be the one delivering this particular horse, but

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

it has been on my mind for a long time.

00:04:07--> 00:04:18

And I think it is something that we can all appreciate something that we all ought to learn about and talk about more often.

00:04:19--> 00:04:30

What is very unfortunate is that the topic of of today's hooked by something that people take lightly, although it is the most important aspect of our existence.

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

It is the one thing for which a loss of habitat actually brought us here.

00:04:36--> 00:04:56

It is the one thing that we all have to pursue, regardless of our age or gender. It doesn't matter, the youngest person in the audience. I don't care how young you are, you will have to listen attentively to what I'm saying. You may not be able to catch everything that I say you may not be able to remember everything.

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

You're never too young to learn about this topic.

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

topic.

00:05:02--> 00:05:11

And you're never you're never too knowledgeable or too smart to talk about it and to study it, and he had a reminder about it.

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

Mallika, bernadina, great

00:05:16--> 00:05:27

figure in our history, he says, poor are the people of dunia, who indulge in this life.

00:05:28--> 00:05:34

People who are so materialistic are so preoccupied with this dunya

00:05:36--> 00:05:49

I don't want to give examples, because I'm sure that some of you just like myself. So those long lines, right, of people waiting all night just to get a hold of something that you can get tomorrow,

00:05:50--> 00:05:53

or maybe in six months, for the same price

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

just dunia right

00:05:57--> 00:06:00

now, don't get me wrong, if you need it, go ahead, by all means and get it.

00:06:01--> 00:06:05

Right. But he says Mr. Kean, hello dounia

00:06:07--> 00:06:14

Suraj you mean how well am IA Dooku aka mafia poor are the people of dunya

00:06:15--> 00:06:40

who see nothing beyond this dunya they depart they leave this dunya after 20 years, 30 years 40 5060 7080 I even saw grave that I had someone who was born 100 years before their death. If you go to the Westminister cemetery, you will see the oldest person buried there is 102.

00:06:41--> 00:06:45

And there are people there who are as young as one hour.

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

And then everything in between.

00:06:49--> 00:07:02

People leave dunia, he said, and they do not get to taste the best thing in dounia. And when they asked him, What are you talking about? He said my refer to law.

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

Knowing a law

00:07:06--> 00:07:07

or knowing of the law,

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

to get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:12--> 00:07:27

Indeed, there are people who know so many things in this life. There are people who specialize in it, which is very fascinating, by the way, specializing very, you know, little things, minute details of

00:07:28--> 00:07:32

things that we can't even see. And they know everything about it the ins and the outs.

00:07:34--> 00:08:07

Autumn, or the nucleus. Amazing PhDs, right? There are people who know their own bodies or how body functions, every little detail. There are people who even study animals, and insects and micro organisms. They study them very thoroughly and they know everything about it. Can you imagine this, and there are people who study anthropology, there are people who study history, the past things that we don't even know about. So make sure that some of them is still live in the past.

00:08:08--> 00:08:35

And there are some people who study politics, all kinds of areas and fields, and I'm not putting them down. But if these studies and specialties and sciences, including the science of the deen itself, because there are some people who know the Quran in and out, they know it inside out. There are people who know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:08:36--> 00:09:13

There are people who know how they function. But if these sciences and fields do not lead us to the most important aspect of our existence, that question, the priceless question, I guess even say, a million dollar, who created us? Who is he? Who's a law? What does he intend for us? What does he want from us? Ashura reminds us of the story of Musa with Pharaoh. And in the story of Mosul, we are told that Musa alayhis salam when he came upon this valley, and he saw light

00:09:14--> 00:09:18

and he saw that there was some sorts he thought that there was some sort of fire

00:09:20--> 00:09:27

and he went seeking guidance or Guess what, he did not see anything. There was light, but he didn't know

00:09:28--> 00:09:44

where this light was coming from. Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to him. And what did Allah subhana wa tada say, to Moosa, the first thing that Allah the Almighty, that God the Almighty said to Moses, Allah introduced himself.

00:09:46--> 00:09:54

Allah introduced himself to his servant and His Prophet Moosa, who will deliver his people. He introduced himself

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

in any law

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

Moses, indeed I am a ma. I am God. That's the first thing that Moses heard in any animal law, that Allah subhanaw taala further gave Musa For more information, let in a NFL Bodine there is no god but me.

00:10:26--> 00:10:34

Musa you have no Lord, you have no one to fear you have no one that you should pursue or love more than me I am the most important

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

aspect of this reality of yours.

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

falguni so worship me.

00:10:44--> 00:10:47

Welcome is solid politically and established prayer for my members.

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

And then down a

00:10:50--> 00:10:55

little bit further, if you read a loss of habitat I told him well I have to confess

00:10:56--> 00:11:04

and I am indeed have chosen you or Moses, I have chosen you. So listen carefully to what is being revealed.

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

And you and I this is a personal task,

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

personal duty, a personal need that you and I have.

00:11:16--> 00:11:20

As Allah subhanaw taala knows us. He knows all of us.

00:11:21--> 00:11:36

But it is our responsibility to get to know our Lord, our Creator. And before you even pursue anything or anyone in life. That's why I said no one is too young. No one is too smart.

00:11:38--> 00:11:58

To get to know about a loss of habitat and continue to know Allah subhanho wa Taala You know, one of the signs that indicate clearly that people don't know a lot enough is what we see in terms of this mess. sins.

00:11:59--> 00:12:03

So Pamela, I will earlier rob the Allahu anhu.

00:12:04--> 00:12:14

He said that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can we have kulu kulu them been Asada who I've done for who Abuja Allah?

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

You know, one of those things that we all complain about,

00:12:19--> 00:12:23

which at the same time, ironically, we're all susceptible to and we, you know,

00:12:24--> 00:12:31

it's since offenses violations. We can pick with detect them and see them.

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

And in fact, when we see other people doing them, we

00:12:36--> 00:12:44

will see how I mean we detest it when we see someone else doing it. But we all indulge, and I'm not here trying to put blame but so I'm just stating a fact.

00:12:45--> 00:12:57

And there are so many causes, but the idea used to say that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no one can miss a sin except due to ignorance.

00:12:59--> 00:13:08

Not necessarily due to ignorance of the fact that this is a sin or that this is haram. In most cases, the majority of people know what is right and what is wrong.

00:13:09--> 00:13:16

The majority of people, but he says what he meant was that ignorance of a loss of Hannah who, what Allah

00:13:17--> 00:13:42

so he said, we're in the scholars further elaborated, we're in nano quanta, alum and below he loves to hate I mean, who will arakata who want to stop want to stop Iraq. If you really knew who Allah subhanho wa Taala is you would have been well aware of his presence and that he is watching you and he would have been too shy to offend him.

00:13:43--> 00:14:04

If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala enough brothers and sisters, we will rely upon love no one but alive. So again, if we know Allah subhanaw taala well enough, we will love Allah subhanho wa Taala and that love will suffice us and we will not be pursuing any other love or self worth by pursuing people who may not be the best for us.

00:14:05--> 00:14:18

If we knew Allah subhanho wa Taala we would not doubt that our risk our sustenance is in the hands of a loss of Hannah with the Allah and no matter what you and I do, we will not get more or less than what Allah has already decreed for us.

00:14:20--> 00:14:47

If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala well we will discover the real meaning of liberty and freedom. And we will not fear anyone but Allah subhanho wa Taala for we will know that if the forces of the universe work together Together upon us as individuals or community, they will not be able to hurt us. They will not be able to do anything was unless Allah subhanaw taala wills it.

00:14:49--> 00:14:57

If we know what must have happened with data enough brothers and sisters, we will be able to cope and get over any loss or any sorrow

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

and nothing is going to be

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

Bring us down. If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala enough, we will do whatever we have to do, seeking nothing but the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala for nothing else matters. If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala well enough, we will believe in the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala so when he says, focus on what I ordered you to do in our reward you we will do that and when he says give back of that which I have given you, and I will give you much more than that, we will do that if we know Allah Subhana Allah well enough brothers and sisters, we will be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala day and night.

00:15:42--> 00:15:56

And finally, if we know Allah subhanaw taala well enough, we will never despair and we will know that a loss of Hannah was to Allah's mercy is vast, and that allows mercy encompasses everything, we will never give up hope.

00:15:58--> 00:16:03

And we will always seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala knowing that he's most forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:16:05--> 00:16:27

If we know Allah subhanaw taala and love enough brothers sister, we will know all of these things and we will do them and we will live, meaningful, fulfilling life. I asked a lot as a widget to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to please move forward and fill in all of the gaps and make sure that you reflect upon what I said a call to handle cola sofala Holly welcome festival bureau

00:16:39--> 00:16:44

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Abadi Latinos suffer well that

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

we are reminded these days.

00:16:48--> 00:16:54

And we see some halala and some of the things or some of the events that are unfolding

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

signs

00:16:58--> 00:17:16

of how great a person or a community or a nation can be when they get to know a loss of Hannah with that. And some hallelujah brothers and sisters, those who are fortunate. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah puts him through circumstances that will get them to know Allah

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

and the outcome of whatever they go through. Is them getting to know Allah Subhana Allah better and getting closer to Allah azza wa jal.

00:17:26--> 00:17:50

That's the difference between someone who has positive mindset and believes in the promise of a loss of house even if he doesn't know much about Allah azza wa jal, he will be able to see through any difficulty or any hardship, but we are particularly reminded these days of figures like Musa alayhis, salam, Musa alayhis salam. I mentioned earlier that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:51--> 00:18:09

introduce himself to him, and Musa alayhis salam, if you study the story of Musa and I want you to just to do this and reflect upon it. But just to inspire us if you see Musa alayhis salaam and his story, Allah subhanaw taala showed us how mousseline Salaam was able to get rid of his fear gradually.

00:18:11--> 00:18:22

In the beginning of the sutra, we know that when Musa alayhis salaam threw that rod of his and turned into a snake he ran away. And Allah says that he ran away in a state of fear.

00:18:24--> 00:18:29

And Allah subhanaw taala told him Musa Don't be afraid to build what I have.

00:18:30--> 00:18:30

Right?

00:18:32--> 00:18:32

Then later,

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

when Allah subhanho wa Taala told him to go and approach Pharaoh.

00:18:39--> 00:18:47

Musa alayhis salam actually revealed his fear color of Ghana in another half of the half. They said we are afraid, he said, I and

00:18:49--> 00:18:57

my brother and I and I we are afraid in a half a year for Allah you know, and yet we are afraid of Pharaoh

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

and his forces

00:19:00--> 00:19:04

that Allah Subhana said Latta hoffa, don't be afraid again.

00:19:06--> 00:19:13

When musala Salah was challenged by Pharaoh and he accepted the challenge, and the magician's came and he saw this

00:19:15--> 00:19:31

you know, awesome trick that these people were able to display. Allah subhanaw taala told us that Musa alayhis salaam had a little bit of fear left for just a few NFC effekten masa, he still have a little bit of fear.

00:19:33--> 00:19:49

But as time goes by and mooses knowledge increases and he gets to know loss of Allah tala better and better. And then when that final moment came when Pharaoh actually brought all of his forces and came chasing Moosa and his people,

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

when the people of Moosa were all scared and afraid, they were they were certain that they will be annihilated and they came to moose and they said, Oh,

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

My God look in nanomolar corner that said, we're taking or going down. Look what you did to us. masala insulin had no fear by then he had gotten rid of all of his fear. Why?

00:20:13--> 00:20:22

Because he got to know Allah subhanho wa Taala he said to them Kela know, the full confidence in America. You're a busy Dean.

00:20:23--> 00:20:31

I have my lord with me. Are you kidding me? I have my lord with me and He will guide me. And that was the end of the story.

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

That was the end of the story.

00:20:34--> 00:21:05

When people get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala you will see examples like our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When a man came upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam holding, he was able to take the prophets own sword. And he said to the Prophet, imagine, he has the prophets own sword in his hand and the Prophet is laying down and he said, Mohammed who is going to protect you from me? Who's going to save you? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calmly said, Allah.

00:21:07--> 00:21:15

And this enemy, this man dropped the sword. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam picked it and he said, Now who's going to protect you from me?

00:21:17--> 00:21:21

And he begged the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for his life and the prophet SAW Selim released him, let him go.

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

Allah getting to know loss of habitat.

00:21:28--> 00:21:39

So when you get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala nothing can get in the way. So how can we get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala real quick brothers and sisters, there are so many things

00:21:40--> 00:21:51

that can be said about this. But let me just give you a few points that for you for you to remember who is better to tell us about a lot as of a gentleman himself than he himself.

00:21:53--> 00:22:05

So Allah subhana wa tada has indeed communicated to us through His book. The Quran is one of the best tools. One of the best ways to get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala is through his book,

00:22:06--> 00:22:27

through his own words that he revealed to us and allowed us to recite and reflect upon. So reading the Quran with reflection, getting to know Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two brothers and sisters, studying the names and the attributes of Allah the beautiful, awesome names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, get to know him, get to know him,

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

get to know who he is.

00:22:32--> 00:22:40

and studying the names of Allah and His attributes one of the greatest ways number two brothers and number three brothers and sisters,

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

to reflect upon the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:22:48--> 00:22:55

For through in the creation of Allah azza wa jal uses many of his science and this is something that we do very little off

00:22:57--> 00:23:16

very little of the creation of the heavens and earth, and we live in one of the most beautiful places on this planet. And we do very little of it. reflecting upon the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says, Look, why don't they look and ponder and think

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

Flm young roofie mallacoota sumati will

00:23:21--> 00:23:33

Flm se rufen Allah subhanaw taala tells us he calls upon us to do this, engage in this forgotten neglected form of a bad called difficult,

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

difficult, we do very little of that.

00:23:39--> 00:23:50

Part of that is to reflect upon the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. within ourselves, Allah subhanaw taala says, Well fill out the area to live makani Rafi unfussy come within yourself.

00:23:51--> 00:24:05

Signs things that you could reflect upon Subhana light remember one time I attended a very beautiful presentation here at this Masjid, and I have never paid attention to this before that. And I learned from someone here, here, this machine this very same masala

00:24:07--> 00:24:37

and one of the examples that he gave, he said, Remember, when when you see your child growing, remember when that child discovers their hand, or their fingers, how mesmerized they become? How fascinated they are with their fingers. Because that's now they can they can see them and then the hand and then they discover that there's there's more to it, and then the rest of the body and their feet and when they can and then when they stand and then all of a sudden, the hand is still as fascinating.

00:24:39--> 00:24:45

But we are distracted by other things. And we long longer take the time to reflect and ponder

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

and some people never get to appreciate these things until they're taken away from them.

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

Or until some of our youth watch movie 127

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

you're like oh

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

power law, under the law,

00:25:04--> 00:25:19

so much so much wealth, that we don't even do anything to get. We have it with the emphasis. So reflecting and pondering upon the creation of a law as a region within ourselves and the and everything that surrounds us.

00:25:21--> 00:25:30

Number four, a great way to no loss of Hana with Allah hang out with those people who get who know Allah subhanho wa Taala and who remind you of Allah azza wa jal

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

that is a choice you make.

00:25:35--> 00:25:39

But that choice will affect you, and it will make you it will define you.

00:25:43--> 00:25:55

Or are people whom you hang out with people that you interact with? Or people that you have very close relationship with? Do they remind you of a law or not? Do they bring you closer to a lot or not? Because I know

00:25:57--> 00:26:02

some people don't like these kind of people. Like, oh, yeah, I don't want to hang out with them. You know, they're not fun.

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

But this is your future.

00:26:12--> 00:26:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:26:15--> 00:26:26

created us. That's where we came from. And to him, we shall return in that Allahu ala Raja. So we can take 10 2030 4050 years or 70 years

00:26:28--> 00:26:29

to avoid him

00:26:30--> 00:26:40

and get away and ignore him and pretend like he doesn't exist. In fact, some of us are some of our youth may even fall into that trap. And they're like, oh, does he really exist, I don't even know.

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

And it gets to them. What other people tell them.

00:26:47--> 00:26:55

But the reality remains to be that one day you will see it. But please pray and hope that you see that reality before it's too late.

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

And people who do not help you see that reality

00:27:03--> 00:27:18

will not be of any benefit to you. So make sure that you surround yourself with people who help you to to get to know loss of habitat who bring you closer to Allah azza wa jal. The best of people are those who endear a lot with servants

00:27:19--> 00:27:24

and endears the servants to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Finally,

00:27:25--> 00:27:29

a great tool to get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala is worshipping Him

00:27:31--> 00:27:50

through praying, through prayers and through supplication and through Dr. Dre is the greatest form of a bad when you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. But by the way, Allah doesn't need that we better we are worshipping Allah so that we get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala better so we can have all the effects that I just mentioned earlier

00:27:52--> 00:28:31

for our own benefit, because without a better we won't be able to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala we won't be able to know who Allah subhanaw taala is, it is for our own good. I asked a lot. So just to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to brothers and sisters. Please do not forget to support with whatever you can. And dry is the least that we can do our brothers and sisters and Eliza and our brothers and sisters in Syria and the rest of the Muslim world please remember them in your drop. We ask a lot of agenda to alleviate their pain and their suffering. We ask a lot of agenda to bring them a relief and give them a decisive victory. I also

00:28:31--> 00:28:39

would like to pray for all Muslims all over the world. I would like to pray for the people of Egypt to have a stability and

00:28:41--> 00:28:58

prosperity Bismillah heeta Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring their hearts together. And may Allah azza wa jal allow Egypt to once again lead this ummah and set a great example visit later. A lot of benefit in Africa Hassan Hassan Okinawa No.

00:30:28--> 00:30:31

And there are people there who are as young as one hour.

00:30:32--> 00:30:34

And then everything in between

00:30:36--> 00:30:48

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

Knowing Allah,

00:30:52--> 00:30:54

or knowing of the law,

00:30:55--> 00:30:58

to get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:30:59--> 00:31:14

Indeed, there are people who know so many things in this life. There are people who specialize in it, which is very fascinating, by the way, specialized and very, you know, little things, minute details of

00:31:15--> 00:31:19

things that we can't even see. And they know everything about it the ins and the outs.

00:31:20--> 00:31:54

Autumn, or the nucleus. Amazing. PhDs, right? There are people who know their own bodies are how body functions, every little detail. There are people who even study animals, and insects and microorganisms. They study them very thoroughly, and they know everything about it. Can you imagine this, and there are people who study anthropology, there are people who study history, the past things that we don't even know about. So make sure that some of them is still live in the past.

00:31:55--> 00:32:21

And there are some people who study politics, all kinds of areas and fields, and I'm not putting them down. But if these studies and specialties and sciences, including the science of the deen itself, because there are some people who know the Quran in and out, they know it inside out. There are people who know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:32:23--> 00:32:59

There are people who know how they function. But if these sciences and fields do not lead us to the most important aspect of our existence, that question, the priceless question, I guess even say, a million dollar, who created us? Who is he has a law. What does he intend for us? What does he want from us? Ashura reminds us of the story of Musa with Pharaoh. And in the story of Mosul, we are told that Musa alayhis salam when he came upon this valley, and he saw light,

00:33:01--> 00:33:05

and he saw that there was some sorts, he thought that there was some sort of fire

00:33:06--> 00:33:13

and he was seeking guidance or Guess what, he did not see anything. There was light, but he didn't know

00:33:14--> 00:33:31

where this light was coming from. Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to him. And what did Allah subhana wa tada say, to Moosa, the first thing that Allah, the Almighty, that God the Almighty said to Moses, Allah introduced himself.

00:33:32--> 00:33:40

Allah introduced himself to his servant and His Prophet Musa, who will deliver his people. He introduced himself

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

in any law of

00:33:46--> 00:34:11

Moses, indeed, I am a Ma, I am God. That's the first thing that Moses heard in any animal law. That Allah subhanaw taala further, gave Musa For more information, let Illa Illa NFR Bodine there is no god but me.

00:34:12--> 00:34:20

Musa you have no Lord, you have no one to fear you have no one that you should pursue or love more than me I am the most important

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

aspect of this reality of your

00:34:26--> 00:34:28

fabulous journey. So worship me.

00:34:30--> 00:34:34

Welcome is solid politically in established prayer for my remembers.

00:34:35--> 00:34:36

And then down.

00:34:37--> 00:34:51

Little bit further if you read a loss of habitat I told him what I have to confess to her and I am indeed have chosen you or Moses, I have chosen you. So listen carefully to what is being revealed.

00:34:52--> 00:34:56

And you and I this is a personal task.

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

Personal duty, a personal needs

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

that you and I have.

00:35:02--> 00:35:06

As a matter of habit, Allah knows us. He knows all of us.

00:35:07--> 00:35:23

But it is our responsibility to get to know our Lord, our Creator. And before you even pursue anything or anyone in life, that's why I said, No one is too young. No one is too smart.

00:35:25--> 00:35:44

To get to know about a loss of how to talent, continue to know Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, one of the signs that indicate clearly that people don't know a lot enough is what we see in terms of this mess. sins.

00:35:46--> 00:35:50

So Pamela echolalia radi Allahu anhu

00:35:51--> 00:36:00

he said, that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can we have kulu kulu them been Asada who I've done for who Abuja Allah?

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

You know, one of those things that we all complain about,

00:36:05--> 00:36:09

which at the same time, ironically, we're all susceptible to and we, you know,

00:36:10--> 00:36:17

it's since offenses violations, we can pick with detect them and see them.

00:36:18--> 00:36:21

And in fact, when we see other people doing them, we

00:36:22--> 00:36:31

we see how I mean, we detest it when we see someone else doing it. But we all indulge, and I'm not here trying to put blame, but I'm just stating In fact,

00:36:32--> 00:36:44

and there are so many causes. But the whole idea used to say that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no one can miss a sin except due to ignorance.

00:36:45--> 00:36:54

Not necessarily due to ignorance of the fact that this is a sin or that this is haram. In most cases, the majority of people know what is right and what is wrong.

00:36:55--> 00:37:02

The majority of people, but he says what he meant was that ignorance of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:37:04--> 00:37:15

So he said we're in the scholars further elaborated, we're in no contact element below. He loves to hate I mean who will arakata who want to stop want to step

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

back.

00:37:17--> 00:37:28

If you really knew who Allah subhanho wa Taala is you would have been well aware of his presence and that he is watching you and you would have been too shy to offend him.

00:37:30--> 00:37:51

If we know a Muslim handle it to Allah enough brothers and sisters, we will rely upon love no one but alive. So again, if we know Allah subhanaw taala well enough, we will love Allah subhanho wa Taala and that love will suffice us and we will not be pursuing any other love or self worth by pursuing people who may not be the best for us.

00:37:52--> 00:38:05

If we knew Allah subhanho wa Taala we would not doubt that our risk our sustenance is in the hands of a loss of Hannah with the Allah and no matter what you and I do, we will not get more or less than what Allah has already decreed for us.

00:38:06--> 00:38:33

If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala well we will discover the real meaning of liberty and freedom. And we will not fear anyone but Allah subhanho wa Taala for we will know that if the forces of the universe work together Together upon us as individuals or community, they will not be able to hurt us. They will not be able to do anything was unless Allah subhanaw taala wills it.

00:38:35--> 00:38:44

If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala enough brothers and sisters we will be able to cope and get over any loss or any sorrow

00:38:45--> 00:39:26

and nothing is going to bring us down. If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala enough, we will do whatever we have to do, seeking nothing but the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala for nothing else matters. If we know Allah subhanho wa Taala well enough, we will believe in the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala so when he says focus on what I ordered you to do in our reward you we will do that and when he says give back of that which I have given you and I will give you much more than that. We will do that if we know Allah Subhana Allah well enough brothers and sisters, we will be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala day and night.

00:39:29--> 00:39:43

And finally, if we know Allah subhanaw taala well enough, we will never despair and we will know that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is Mercy is vast, and that allows mercy encompasses everything we will never give up hope.

00:39:44--> 00:39:50

And we will always seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala knowing that he's most forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

If we know Allah subhanaw taala and love enough brothers sister, we will know all of these things and we will do them and we will live meaningful full

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

Feeling life? I asked a lot as a widget to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to please move forward and fill in all of the gaps and make sure that you reflect upon what I said a Kudo, Heather Kohler Sofitel, la Holly welcome festival bureau

00:40:26--> 00:40:30

hamdu lillahi wa salatu salam ala Betty Latina, Safa, well that

00:40:32--> 00:40:33

we are reminded these days.

00:40:35--> 00:40:40

And we see some halala. And some of the things are some of the events that are unfolding

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

signs

00:40:44--> 00:41:02

of how great a person or a community or a nation can be, when they get to know a loss of handle with that. And some handle our brothers and sisters, those who are fortunate. Allah subhanho wa Taala puts him through circumstances that will get them to know Allah

00:41:04--> 00:41:11

and the outcome of whatever they go through. Is them getting to know Allah subhanaw taala better and getting closer to Allah azza wa jal.

00:41:13--> 00:41:36

That's the difference between someone who has positive mindset and believes in the promise of a loss of how to even if he doesn't know much about Allah azza wa jal, he will be able to see through any difficulty or any hardship, but we are particularly reminded these days of figures like Musa alayhis, salam, Musa alayhis, Salam. I mentioned earlier that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:41:37--> 00:41:56

introduced himself to him, and Musa alayhis salam, if you study the story of Musa and I want you to just to do this and reflect upon it. But just to inspire us, if you see Musa alayhis salam in his story, Allah subhanaw taala showed us how mousseline Salam was able to get rid of his fear gradually.

00:41:57--> 00:42:08

In the beginning of the sutra, we know that when Musa alayhis salam threw that rod of his and turned into a snake he ran away. And Allah says that he ran away in a state of fear.

00:42:11--> 00:42:15

And Allah subhanaw taala told him Musa Don't be afraid to build what I have.

00:42:17--> 00:42:17

Right?

00:42:18--> 00:42:19

Then later,

00:42:20--> 00:42:24

when Allah subhanho wa Taala told him to go and approach Pharaoh

00:42:25--> 00:42:33

Moses Musa alayhis salam actually revealed his fear color of Ghana in another half of the half. They said we are afraid, he said, I and

00:42:35--> 00:42:43

my brother and I, and I we are afraid in a half a year for Allah you know, and yet we are afraid of Pharaoh

00:42:45--> 00:42:46

and his forces

00:42:47--> 00:42:51

that Allah Subhana said Latta hoffa, don't be afraid again.

00:42:52--> 00:43:00

When musala Salah was challenged by Pharaoh and he accepted the challenge, and the magician's came and he saw this

00:43:01--> 00:43:17

you know, awesome trick that these people were able to display. Allah subhanaw taala told us that Musa alayhis salaam had a little bit of fear left for just a few NFC effekten masa, he still have a little bit of fear.

00:43:20--> 00:43:36

But as time goes by and mooses knowledge increases and he gets to know loss of Allah tala better and better. And then when that final moment came when Pharaoh actually brought all of his forces and came chasing Musa and his people,

00:43:37--> 00:43:58

when the people of Moosa were all scared and afraid, they were they were certain that they will be annihilated. And they came to moose and they said, Oh, my God, look in nanomolar corn that said, we're taking or going down. Look what you did to us. Mussolini, Stalin had no fear by then he had gotten rid of all of his fear. Why?

00:44:00--> 00:44:08

Because he got to know Allah subhanho wa Taala he said to them, Kela know, the full confidence in America are busy again.

00:44:09--> 00:44:17

I have my lord with me. Are you kidding me? I have my lord with me and He will guide me. And that was the end of the story.

00:44:18--> 00:44:19

That was the end of the story.

00:44:21--> 00:44:51

When people get to know Allah subhana wa Tada. You will see examples like our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When a man came upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam holding, he was able to take the profits own sword. And he said to the Prophet, imagine he has the profits on sword in his hand and the profit is laying down and he said, Mohammed who is going to protect you from me? Who's going to save you? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commonly said, Allah

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

and this enemy, this man dropped the sword, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam picked it and he said, Now

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Who's going to protect you from me?

00:45:03--> 00:45:08

And he begged the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam for his life and the promises and then released him, let him go.

00:45:09--> 00:45:11

Allah getting to know the loss of habitat.

00:45:15--> 00:45:26

So when you get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala nothing can get in the way. So how can we get to no loss of Hannah attallah real quick brothers and sisters, there are so many things

00:45:27--> 00:45:38

that can be said about this. But let me just give you a few points that for you for you to remember who is better to tell us about Allah azza wa jal than himself, then he himself.

00:45:39--> 00:45:52

So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has indeed communicated to us through His book. The Quran is one of the best tools. One of the best ways to get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala is through his book,

00:45:53--> 00:46:14

through his own words that he had revealed to us and allowed us to recite and reflect upon. So reading the Quran with reflection, getting to know Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two brothers and sisters, studying the names and the attributes of Allah the beautiful, awesome names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, get to know him, get to know him,

00:46:15--> 00:46:17

get to know who he is.

00:46:19--> 00:46:27

and studying the names of a law and his attributes one of the greatest ways number two brothers and number three brothers and sisters,

00:46:29--> 00:46:33

to reflect upon the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:46:34--> 00:46:41

For through in the creation of Allah azza wa jal uses many of his science and this is something that we do very little off

00:46:44--> 00:47:02

very little of the creation of the heavens and earth, and we live in one of the most beautiful places on this planet. And we do very little of it, reflecting upon the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says, Look, why don't they look and ponder and think

00:47:04--> 00:47:06

Flm young roofie mallacoota sumati well,

00:47:07--> 00:47:19

very messy roof and Allah subhanaw taala tells us he calls upon us to do this, engage in this forgotten neglected form of a bad called difficult,

00:47:21--> 00:47:23

difficult, we do very little of that.

00:47:25--> 00:47:36

Part of that is to reflect upon the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. within ourselves, Allah subhanaw taala says, Well fill out the area to live more emphasis on within yourself.

00:47:37--> 00:47:52

Signs things that you could reflect upon Subhana light remember, one time attended a very beautiful presentation here at this Masjid, and I have never paid attention to this before that. And I learned from someone here, here, this machine, this very same masala.

00:47:54--> 00:48:23

And one of the examples that he gave, he said, Remember, when when you see your child growing, remember when that child discovers their hand, or their fingers, how mesmerized they become, how fascinated they are with their fingers. Because that's now they can they can see them and then the hand and then they discover that there's, there's more to it, and then the rest of the body and their feet and when they can. And then when they stand, and then all of a sudden, the hand is still as fascinating.

00:48:25--> 00:48:31

But we are distracted by other things. And we long longer take the time to reflect and ponder.

00:48:32--> 00:48:37

And some people never get to appreciate these things until they're taken away from them.

00:48:40--> 00:48:43

Or until some of our youth watch movie 127

00:48:45--> 00:48:48

you're like, oh, Allah hamdulillah

00:48:50--> 00:49:06

so much so much wealth, that we don't even do anything to get. We have it with the emphasis. So reflecting and pondering upon the creation of Allah as the origin within ourselves and the everything that surrounds us.

00:49:08--> 00:49:16

Number four, a great way to know Allah subhanho wa Taala hang out with those people who get who know Allah subhanho wa Taala and who remind you of a live switcher.

00:49:19--> 00:49:20

There is a choice you make.

00:49:22--> 00:49:26

But that choice will affect you and it will make you it will define you.

00:49:29--> 00:49:42

Or are people whom you hang out with people that you interact with or people that you have very close relationship with? Do they remind you of a law or not? Do they bring you closer to a law or not? Because I know

00:49:43--> 00:49:49

some people don't like these kind of people. Like oh yeah, I don't want to hang out with them. You know, they're not fun.

00:49:55--> 00:49:57

But this is your future.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

He

00:50:01--> 00:50:12

created us. That's where we came from. And to him, we shall return in that way in a Roger. So we can take 10 2030 4050 years or 70 years

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

to avoid him

00:50:16--> 00:50:27

and get away and ignore him and pretend like he doesn't exist. In fact, some of us are some of our youth may even fall into that trap and they're like, oh, does he really exist, I don't even know.

00:50:29--> 00:50:32

And it gets to them. What other people tell them.

00:50:33--> 00:50:42

But the reality remains to be that one day you will see it. But please pray and hope that you see that reality before it's too late.

00:50:45--> 00:50:48

And people who do not help you see that reality

00:50:49--> 00:51:04

will not be of any benefit to you. So make sure that you surround yourself with people who help you to, to get to know loss of habitat who bring you closer to Allah azza wa jal. The best of people are those who endear a lot with servants

00:51:06--> 00:51:10

and endears the servants to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Finally,

00:51:11--> 00:51:16

a great tool to get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala is worshipping Him

00:51:17--> 00:51:37

through praying, through prayers and through supplication and through da da is the greatest form of a bad when you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. But by the way, Allah doesn't need that rabada we are worshipping Allah so that we get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala better so we can have all the effects that I just mentioned earlier

00:51:38--> 00:52:17

for our own benefit, because without a better we won't be able to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala we won't be able to know who Allah subhanaw taala is, it is for our own good and asked a lot. So just to make you an eye of those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to brothers and sisters. Please do not forget to support with whatever you can. And dry is the least that we can do our brothers and sisters and Eliza and our brothers and sisters in Syria and the rest of the Muslim world, please remember them in your drop. We ask a lot of agenda to alleviate their pain and their suffering. We ask a lot of agenda to bring them a relief and give them a decisive victory. I

00:52:17--> 00:52:25

also would like to pray for all Muslims all over the world. I would like to pray for the people of Egypt to have a stability and

00:52:27--> 00:52:45

prosperity Bismillah to Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring their hearts together. And may Allah azza wa jal allow Egypt to once again lead this ummah and set a great example visit later a lot of benefit in Africa Hassan Hassan Okinawa Marbella,
