I mean, you hear about these things happening overseas in the Middle East and like in the United States of America with all these standards that they have and the inspections and all that how could something like this happen?

00:00:37--> 00:00:39

Sure, just Subhanallah

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

00:01:15--> 00:01:19

I don't know was that was anti Muslim. You know?

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

Imagine just going to vacation

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

you know, renting Airbnb

00:01:32--> 00:01:38

property and just somehow up there 99 People are missing.

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

Can you imagine 99 people are missing

00:01:47--> 00:01:53

and that image that video of the young man making it out of the rubble, you saw that

00:01:54--> 00:01:54


00:01:56--> 00:01:59

so far, they I think they picked five

00:02:01--> 00:02:06

right? They brought five out of the rebels. You know, one one passed away and

00:02:08--> 00:02:08

I think

00:02:10--> 00:02:18

for those who may not know what I'm talking about, because you're not following the news, you know, there's a there's an apartment building a high rise building in Miami that collapsed.

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

Or half of it or 1/3 of it just collapsed.

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

You know?

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola.

00:02:31--> 00:02:32


00:02:35--> 00:02:42

we continue to show Allah Tala with the hadith of cozzia and

00:02:47--> 00:02:50

the Hadith I would like to share with you

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

is a very

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

powerful Hadith

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


00:03:08--> 00:03:10

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:11--> 00:03:28

said on the authority of Abu Hurayrah Radi Allahu Allah and this hadith is collected by Abu Dawood. Imagine Mohammed they all have authentic chains. So the prophets of Allah hasten to own the authority of Abu Hurayrah or the Allahu Anhu kala kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Allah azza wa jal

00:03:30--> 00:03:34

Allah Subhana Allah speaking he says Al Kibriya or ADA II

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

Well Our motto is a very

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

feminine design if you are hadn't been homer for them to move in now.

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

Allah the Almighty

00:03:46--> 00:03:51

subhanho wa Taala said Kibriya which is translated as pride

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

is my cloak.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

Right is my cloak.

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

Well our motto and greatness or might

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

is my rope.

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

This is the translation usually read that and Zara and read that

00:04:15--> 00:04:26

is our is the bottom part of of a garment and that he that is the top part you know when you have hair on the bottom part is called these are the

00:04:27--> 00:04:30

and this is you know a metaphor to say that they belong to me.

00:04:32--> 00:04:35

Pride belongs to Allah, the ultimate pride.

00:04:36--> 00:04:47

Right Greatness belongs to Allah Subhana Allah no one is greater than Allah Subhana Allah No one deserves to have any pride except Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah so Allah Subhana Allah says that these

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

concepts belong to me

00:04:51--> 00:04:52


00:04:53--> 00:04:53

and me alone

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

from a NASA nev Hema

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


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


00:05:04--> 00:05:22

competes with me with regards or with respect to either one of them. Whoever wants to compete with Allah or whoever wants to claim make a claim to any of them. With Allah subhanho wa taala. The Prophet SAW, as I'm said, Allah the Almighty says, I'd have to be now

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

I shall cast him into hellfire.

00:05:28--> 00:05:39

Anyone who challenges Allah subhanho wa Taala anyone who would think of himself or herself to be as great as Allah. And we know that history is full of figures like this,

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

who thought that they were above and beyond?

00:05:45--> 00:05:55

They self, they deceived themselves into thinking that they can be greater than Allah azza wa jal, and this applies to individuals as well as systems and regimes.

00:05:57--> 00:06:37

Right? Whether it's an individual, and usually an individual usually thinks of himself as what, as part of a bigger establishment or entity, the head figure of that entity, if Iran, he had an EPA, you know, his entire apparatus is what got to his head. Because he said, la Saleemul Comis, he said to his people, am I not the king? Don't I have the kingship and control over dominion over Egypt? And he said, Mr. commis, what have you learned how to take any mentality and look at these rivers that been, you know, flow beneath me? Like as if he's responsible?

00:06:38--> 00:06:49

You know, and by the way, this is this is this disease still common until the state people taking credit for something that they have nothing to do with? Like as if they're responsible for it?

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

Right, like the economy.

00:06:54--> 00:07:13

Look, what I have done with the head of the state, the head figure is just a symbolic figure. It's not I mean, it can make a difference policies can make a difference, but people claim credit for for something that they have nothing to do with. Right? Greenery rain, good weather. I go on my show a lot. Our government has been doing a good job.

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

Have a

00:07:16--> 00:07:24

lot of fly Peter. So he said, I don't I have dominion over? What have you done, how to take your humidity

00:07:25--> 00:07:36

and some honey Subhan Allah, that's what he took pride in the fact that he had this massive and great body of water which is considered one of the wonders of this, of this planet. The Nile River River.

00:07:37--> 00:07:40

What is Allah Subhana? Allah his demise was what?

00:07:41--> 00:07:45

Allah subhanaw taala made the water run over him. He drowned.

00:07:48--> 00:07:54

So anyone that challenges Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah azza wa jal will get him sooner or later.

00:07:55--> 00:08:09

There has never been anyone anyone that was even those who claim that they are the kings of all kings, Allah subhanaw taala. In our lifetime, we have witnessed these kind of events that allow for IPT that is why we need to humble ourselves before Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:10--> 00:08:18

Right, as individuals, sometimes some people say that hamdulillah I'm not like Pharaoh. But I mean, are you like fair with respect to your family?

00:08:19--> 00:08:26

Because sometimes you have people look, yeah, of course, I'm not. I'm not a pharaoh. Right? I don't have I'm not a king. I'm not a royalty. I'm not.

00:08:27--> 00:08:42

Yeah, but how about within whatever circle we have, or whatever, whoever we have, under our, let's say, supervision are under our authority. How do we behave? Do we think that we're greater than

00:08:43--> 00:09:08

everyone else that we can do whatever we want and get away with it? Or do we realize that we belong to Allah, and to Allah who return and humble ourselves and not act like that we know that we respond to Allah will hold us accountable. And let me be an ally. And there is a disease, by the way with people of ego is whenever you here's a very good test, if you want to know where you fall, okay, because sometimes you say, Well,

00:09:10--> 00:09:20

you know, I'm not a king, but if you are in the shoes, or the or the, or in the throne, if you were if you had that kind of seat or that kind of power, how would you have acted?

00:09:21--> 00:09:22


00:09:23--> 00:09:24

Examine yourself.

00:09:25--> 00:09:43

Allah subhanaw taala says, What either Tila Tequila, or is it to believe him? When it said to them to fear Allah and be mindful of Allah, their pride or ego kicks in and it prevents them from listening to it. And they will say, you know, I have never done anything wrong. I have nothing to apologize for.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

Right? And I'm always right. If you're someone that says you're always right, and you're not when you're told to fear Allah subhanaw taala that does not humble you. Then right there you have that

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

Only the seed of pride but you actually have a small tree of pride growing in your heart.

00:10:05--> 00:10:30

I know Murali Allahu Anhu whenever it you know people will say whether it's his subjects or his family members, his wives or his children whenever someone will say to him it tequila HaOmer not Yeah, I'm gonna move money in and not Oh Khalifa or Your Majesty Your Your Highness you're no Yama it took a La Jolla Amara. He he would he would actually get nervous.

00:10:32--> 00:10:47

He will be visibly nervous. And whenever a verse from the Quran is presented to him or a statement attributed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding any of his choices or actions or would, would stop and hold himself accountable.

00:10:48--> 00:11:03

Right? And take take responsibility. So it is very important to maintain humility before Allah subhanho wa taala. And to feel Allah subhanho wa Taala and not to allow pride or the sense of greatness.

00:11:05--> 00:11:23

Even if it's if we have accomplished anything in life, don't get to it. Maintain your humility. My dear brothers and sisters Wallahi there is no gift greater than the gift of humility. If Allah subhanaw taala has given you humility, then you're very fortunate.

00:11:24--> 00:11:33

May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to maintain humility May Allah subhanaw taala make us of those who are humble amongst people, great in the eyes of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah

00:11:35--> 00:11:39

Subhana Allah who have him definition to Allah, learned in a selfie rock I want to talk
