00:01:50--> 00:02:17

All praise is due to Allah, we praise Him, we seek his aid and we asked forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves, and from the evil consequences of our evil actions. Whomsoever Allah guides known can lead astray and whomsoever Allah needs to go astray, can die.

00:02:18--> 00:02:29

Or you testify that there is not worthy of worship and devotion of the Almighty Allah alone. And I testify that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

sallam and his messenger are you really fear Allah as he should be feared and die not, except as Muslims, all mankind leaves you beautiful God Lord, Who created you from a single person, and from him he created his wife. From the moment they created many men and women

00:02:56--> 00:03:32

and fear Allah to whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your king. Surely Allah is ever an overture over you, or you who believe give you a duty to Allah, fear and seek the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are the Divine Words of Allah the Almighty and the best guidance is that of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was sending them

00:04:53--> 00:04:56

relief on the Messenger of Allah already he was system that he said

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

deceptively

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

years will come upon people.

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

Years of deception will fall upon people.

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

In those days, the truthful will not be believed.

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

And the wire will be accepted.

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

Be honest, would not be trusted.

00:05:26--> 00:05:31

To be treacherous and deceptive person wouldn't be interested.

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

And in those days

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

we'll see.

00:05:42--> 00:05:58

I mean the messages Allah says it was asked what is avoiding demand? It's a common word even in the Arabic language. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the foolish person speaking on public affairs.

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

Speaking on matters of public importance

00:06:10--> 00:06:18

the price for them in this statement is speaking about the later times and

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

much of the manifestations.

00:06:22--> 00:07:03

What's interesting about the Socratic description is that the messages are described to us as deceptive although the years is just a reference to time. And time is the temporal frame within which things take place. years are the sign of the passing of time and the passing of time being described as deceptive or honest. But that's a figure of speech, it means that deception will prevail during these years. These years will be characterized by lying and deception that will become prevalence, and dominance.

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

But these qualities of deception

00:07:10--> 00:07:18

or truthfulness, honesty, treasure essence and trust can only be applied

00:07:20--> 00:07:31

to systems of meaning. We call that a mind. We call that the hearts it's only the people that can be deceptive, or can be truthful.

00:07:32--> 00:07:51

So the prophets of Allah already set it up is referring to the times as deceptive, meaning the people who live in those times, meaning the different meanings, collective meanings that are characterized and dominated by deception, by lying by departure from the truth.

00:07:52--> 00:07:57

And these descriptions accurately describe the times in which we live today.

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

What we call culture is a collective system of meaning. It's a set of beliefs and values, because our minds are systems for processing information, if you give out if you give your mind false information, your intellect will just process it, your heart will process it, if you give it truth, it will also process it.

00:08:29--> 00:08:51

And then it will produce some outcomes. So when the culture and the way of life that dominates a time is full of falsehood, people will start consuming these false meanings. And then they will live according to them. They will produce them. You can't live in a culture of deception and be part of it.

00:08:53--> 00:09:45

And then expect to be truthful. You can't you can't. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the people who, in the face of all odds, will decide to live upon the truth, and for the truth and by the truth. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam described them that these will be the strange people in society. These will be the weird ones, the odd individuals, they are rare individuals. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam describes them as an oral bat when he said in the statement by the dean or even will say or oh do her even come up for Uber, or Ola. The Religion of Truth started as a stranger. It was a minority.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

It did not fit in society to society at that time of boyish and all of the earth. People were living in systems of deception, of lying they worshipped other than Allah. They

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

They believed in falsehood. Their understanding of the world was based on false assumptions.

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

So, when the Prophet SAW Selim came with the truth, and the early Muslims embrace that truth, and lived according to it, they seem to be weird and strange. They didn't fit in society. They were looked down upon. They were ridiculed and Allah subhanaw taala says about that, in Lavina, julabo, candolyn and Medina and we have

00:10:37--> 00:10:50

indeed the criminals, the people of disbelief, they used to laugh at the believers, they used to mock them, ridicule them, make fun of them.

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

Because they were they looked weird.

00:10:55--> 00:11:10

They looked estranged, straight, not necessarily in the way in their looks, but more in their lifestyle, more about their goals and the purpose in their life, and their manners and their behavior and their character

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

and their pursuits in this life.

00:11:15--> 00:11:32

So the prophets Allah wa sallam said, the religion of Truth is thought started as a stranger, and it will return as a stranger and the prophets have set themselves to bear good glad tidings. Promise of Paradise will be for those strangers towards the end of time, who will embrace the truth.

00:11:35--> 00:11:40

But embracing the truth, in a society that is dominated by falsehood,

00:11:42--> 00:11:54

in a community that embraces and celebrates untruths, and lives, according to them, is extremely difficult and challenging. It requires courage.

00:11:55--> 00:12:12

It requires abstinence from a lot of the public platforms of discussion and education. You need to stand out you need to separate because your mind if you feed it on truth, if you feed it falsehood, it will produce falsehood.

00:12:13--> 00:12:25

And that's why the Prophet SAW Selim and this is the context in which we need to understand. The Hadith of the Prophet SAW Allah Selim what he said man Hosni Islam in Turku, Humala,

00:12:27--> 00:12:41

from the perfection of one's religion, a sign that someone's heart is in good shape is that this person will mind their own business will only be focused on the things that will bring them closer to Allah.

00:12:44--> 00:12:59

And someone who mines their own business in terms of their pleasure, and the dunya is not someone whose faith is in good shape. So the Prophet SAW Selim was speaking about someone who only concerns himself with the things that will bring him closer to Allah.

00:13:02--> 00:13:09

So that would not open their mind and their system for any piece of information that is spread out there.

00:13:12--> 00:13:40

They're very selective, they're very careful as to what they feed their mind. Just like, as people who look after their physical health, they're so concerned about the food that they consume, that it must be pure, it must be quality food, it must be nutritious and nourishing to the body. And it shouldn't have contaminants and harmful elements. The same thing applies to our hearts and our minds.

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

So when we live in use of deception,

00:13:45--> 00:14:05

that requires the person to be very careful not to engage in any public kind of discussion, not open the channels that feed into their mind and their heart, not to make them open to what society shares to the garbage that is shared on every public platform, no matter how official that is.

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

You can't afford to allow deception to be part of your system because that will take you away from Allah.

00:14:17--> 00:14:40

It will distract you from the reality of this life. It will tell you things about this life that are not true. And then when you act upon falsehood, your actions will be wasted. No matter how proud how proud are convinced you are over to believe. Many people are convinced a falsehood. Many people have adopted and embraced

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

notions that will bring destruction upon them.

00:14:46--> 00:14:52

That will take them away from Allah subhanaw taala and Allah mentioned that in the Quran, Allah says, Allah Allah Allah

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

will act serene.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

And Ladino Melissa Johann Phil hieratic dunya wa whom you serve

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

Wanna unknown?

00:15:01--> 00:15:24

Shall we not tell you about the worst losers, those who will lose the most those who lost will be the greatest. Those are the ones who do who act and produce actions and conduct, thinking, believing that that actions are superior, that their lifestyle is the best.

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

The thing or the best example, the best model of humanity,

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

when in reality,

00:15:34--> 00:15:41

their actions will go to waste, because they were based on falsehood. And they were done for falsehood.

00:15:43--> 00:15:50

So the Prophet Solomon, he shared this hadith about the years that are to come upon people, our use of deception,

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

meaning that the world will be dominated by false ideologies.

00:15:59--> 00:16:23

By an understanding of life that is untrue, that will inform how people see themselves, how people see others, how people set goals, how people get about pursuing their life, how people behave, how people socialize and interact, how people work.

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

That's the problem with ideology.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

And that's what Allah says the Quran, Allah says,

00:16:34--> 00:16:37

Man, we're able to become more Shiva Lima for sudo.

00:16:39--> 00:17:08

Allah has brought to you and vice profound advice and guidance and healing for what's in the heart. Because this reality, this life, the reality of it, you can never figure it out, you don't have the tools, you don't have the intelligence, you don't have the access to the information, you don't have the means to figure out life, humans will go from one theory to another, from one ideology to the next. And they will never arrive at the truth. They don't have access to that the world is bigger than their minds.

00:17:11--> 00:17:39

So Allah who put them in this life, he sent the guidance, He told them, I created this universe, I created you and placed you in this world. And I'm the only one who knows what this world is about. And here is my message. He was the truth. Here is who you are, here is what the world is, here is what you should be doing. Here is what's good here is what's evil. Here is the truth, and he was falsehood.

00:17:41--> 00:17:53

And then we are so arrogant. We are too proud of ourselves and our intelligence. Because we've just achieved a little bit of things here and there. We think we know better. We start to judge Allah.

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

When we are just a speck of dust in the whole universe.

00:18:01--> 00:18:04

With think we know these are the years of deception.

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

Every tool that Allah has bestowed upon humans, intellect,

00:18:14--> 00:18:22

sensory capacity and faculties, science, education, knowledge, advancement.

00:18:23--> 00:18:37

All of these are urgently useful tools that Allah inspired humans. So the critic goes back to Allah, but we have turned them into Gods that we wish to live them besides Allah, we take philosophy

00:18:38--> 00:18:48

as a means to understand the universe and the purpose of humanity. We take science to tell us what the universe is about and what life is

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

and what we should be doing.

00:18:54--> 00:18:58

So we started worshipping, science, worshiping philosophy,

00:18:59--> 00:19:28

worshipping culture, and then worshipping God desires. So we live in deception. And that not only that, you know, many Muslims have the guts to swallow all of this stuff with the good and the evil in it. And then say, you know, that's Islamic. That's Islamic, then we render the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim into mere formalities, folklore, artifacts, decoration and cosmetics.

00:19:30--> 00:19:41

Our minds and our hearts are contaminated with things that challenge undefined, divine truth in the Quran and in the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:19:42--> 00:19:48

And we're not brave enough to look him in the eye and tell ourselves that we're wrong about that. Why?

00:19:49--> 00:19:56

Because all of these things that we've been swallowing throughout the educational systems through the cultures

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

through the outlets of media

00:20:01--> 00:20:10

We've allowed that to contaminate us. And we are happy with what with the little with the peanuts that it offers us.

00:20:11--> 00:20:28

We Happy our desires make the system that we live in acceptable, right? Because at the end of the month, I get a paycheck and I get to enjoy my life and eventually probably buy a house and a car and you know, go on vacation. Why would I disturb this beautiful lifestyle

00:20:32--> 00:21:01

and then we hand the poison down to our kids. We allow their minds to be contaminated. We allow people who don't know Allah don't believe in Allah to educate them, to tell them who they are, what life is about what they should do with their life, even what success means. Look at Muslims, Muslim influencers on social media, the telling the truth, all of them are perpetuating non Muslim agenda, telling Muslims that success is you being rich.

00:21:02--> 00:21:09

Although there's nothing wrong with being rich, but true success in Islam is that you are a true worshipper of Allah.

00:21:10--> 00:21:17

Now, if you go about life and you happen to be successful, that's something great. Use this for the sake of Allah, good for you.

00:21:19--> 00:21:32

But to fill the Muslim minds and hearts, especially the younger generation, Hey, be like Bill Gates being like Elon Musk, we always celebrate them celebrate them. But we never point out that these people don't believe in Allah.

00:21:34--> 00:21:43

That these people if they did not search for the truth, they did not do their job, they will end up in the Hellfire eternally. We, we tell them half the story.

00:21:48--> 00:21:53

And that's why many of our generations are brought up and they grow defeated from within,

00:21:55--> 00:22:07

defeated from within because we have marginalized our history. We have swallowed agenda that was shared by academia about the history of the world that is completely written in biased ways.

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

Use of deception.

00:22:11--> 00:22:38

Years of deception that we have swallowed. And that's why when you tell the truth in these years, you are looked down upon, you are rejected. You are denied, you are labeled. Now not everyone rejected. Not everyone who is estranged from society, not one everyone who's denied or upon the truth. We need to be careful because many people celebrate just being different. No being different is not a goal in itself.

00:22:39--> 00:22:48

It's just a byproduct of being truthful at the times of lying, and being honest in the years of deception. Apollo probably had the worst of thriller Hollywood.

00:22:59--> 00:23:05

Alhamdulillah here are behind me no salat wa salam ala Sayidina Muhammad, Allah Allah He was having here Jemaine what?

00:23:06--> 00:23:20

Allah subhanaw taala addresses the Muslim ummah endocrine seeing what can Delica Anna cometan was a dog with a Kuno shahada Island Nancy way Hakuna Allah solo Alikum Shahida and thus we have made you a model for humanity.

00:23:22--> 00:23:31

A model when you hold on to your religion, so the Muslim ummah is not just trying to get by. That's not our mission.

00:23:34--> 00:23:46

We need to embrace the treasure that Allah has given us. Its Allah has entrusted us with a great mission. That's to discover the truth that He has given us.

00:23:48--> 00:23:55

And many of us have turned it into artifacts, and cosmetics, and some niceties.

00:23:57--> 00:24:09

Were supposed to discover that embrace it and live by it, and then share it with humanity and help solve the problems that humanity brings upon itself by following the path of shaytaan.

00:24:10--> 00:24:20

And the path of Shavon is always sugar coated, because the whole market chiffon is deception is deception. And that's what we live in today.

00:24:21--> 00:24:26

All of that once it runs its full course. It looks ugly.

00:24:27--> 00:24:47

Today, humanity is so good about public relations and showing golf making, always talking about eliminating poverty. Human rights, minorities rights, when people are being persecuted denied their basic rights. People are dying of hunger and thirst when we're talking about what numbers that are false.

00:24:48--> 00:24:50

The United Nations talking about

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

getting millions of people in different parts of the world of what poverty where people can't even find clean, clean water to drink.

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

They can't even feed their children, years of deception that tells you humanity has reached an apex of human rights. Really? What about all of the hidden prisons? What about all of the political prisoners? What about the persecution that you do and perform in other countries?

00:25:21--> 00:26:05

We live in years of deception. And the problem is, many of us have decided to play along that and be part of that deception. And you know what the price is heavy and hefty on the Day of Judgment, we need to wake up, we have a responsibility. We have responsibility to embrace the truth and speak it and recognize that any system around us no matter how official it is, that's exacerbated. Now with social media. We need to be careful into what we allow in in terms of information because if you keep listening to misinformation, you are your system is full of deception, and you can only produce deception. You can only produce deception when you allow deception and be careful.

00:26:07--> 00:26:50

And the prophets Islam was accurate when he said, what is the outcome of years of deception, Yamamoto ye buhbuh, this new wave of the foolish person who lacks even common sense, who lacks any sense of decency, these are what these are the celebrities, these are the people who speak on public affairs. These are the people whose advice is heard. These are the people who are taken as models. And that's what we live in. That's what we live in. And we love to peek into these people's lives and private at first looking into their houses and their palaces of the reacts and their private life. Who's following that? Who's the fuel of that fire that burns humanity, ourselves and our

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

children.

00:26:54--> 00:27:21

We need to spend our time with the truth. We need only to invest in the truth. And by doing that you eliminate falsehood. You eliminate false it's your responsibility each and every one of us. Deception creeps on you. And it doesn't feel painful, but it's at your heart. It ruins you and you will only wake up to the truth. The moment the Angel of Death comes to take the soul

00:27:24--> 00:27:37

so don't let that deception fool you. Don't let don't let it sit date you wake up. Where do you find the truth? That's what Allah sent the Quran because humans need a reference for the truth.

00:27:38--> 00:27:42

Any information any false information could be convincing. By the way

00:27:43--> 00:28:31

anyone can convince you of anything by the way. You need a reference to tell truth from falsehood. Where is that divine words? The Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet salaallah Salam without that you can make a case for any sort of logic or rationalization. Without Allah humans are lost. Humans will be engulfed by the enemy and taken to the Hellfire We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us along my filament meaning me now to a Muslim and I want to hear him on what Allama fildena Do know by now myself and a few Emelina with a bit abdominal one sadhana I love COVID Catherine Allama Felina Asana Woman Island woman and to Lm OB came in along I believe we have the almighty unpolished SV robotic
