We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide I testify that there is none worthy of our worship and devotion but the Almighty Allah alone, and I testify that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa, he was seldom is His servant and His Messenger or you who believe, fear Allah as he should be feared and die not except in a state of submission to Him as Muslims, or mankind. be

Surely Allah is ever an old water over you are you who believe, keep your duty to Allah fearing him and speak 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. And the best guidance is not a prophet Muhammad Sall Allahu Allah, He went early he was salam. And the worst things in the religion are the

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

newly invented matters for all the newly invented matters in religion are an innovation and every bidder is misguidance. Allah subhanaw taala addresses us in the Quran, he says

interphone or Silas enough in a whole candidate, being of a fall at the hardcover will Myskina webinars severely one or two but the Richard

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala and saw that Islam gives us golden advice, words of wisdom that encompass all of the all of the foundations of good conduct of a godly life. And at the end of those Allah subhanaw taala closes them by saying that he can in in a column book Amin and ACHEMA This is from the wisdom that your Lord has revealed to you

00:04:44 --> 00:04:55

and building on previous hotbars we want to look at a detailed approach, a deal to detail the approach of what it means to live a wise life

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

of what it means to know what is good and

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

Know what's evil, so that we can align our life with the principle of good that our life becomes a manifestation and a practice of a higher or what good really means and an abstinence from what evil means, because the path to gender is good

00:05:25 --> 00:05:28

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Allah Hapa you burn

00:05:29 --> 00:05:35

up a yerba that Allah is good and he only accepts that which is good.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37


00:05:38 --> 00:05:53

Jana, no one will intergender except those who are good agenda, Tata Yeva, to lie at home to her in Napa. Yes. This is why the angels will say to the believers who enter Jannah food victim, food, holo holiday.

00:05:55 --> 00:06:00

You're good you have become good into into it, and dwell in it forever.

00:06:02 --> 00:06:40

And Allah subhanaw taala says about this life, the reality of this life is that it separates or he sets apart the good ones from the evil one so that those who intergender will only be purely good, purely good. Allah says what He means Allahu hubbie. Femina, yep, so that Allah sets apart the good ones from the evil ones. This is why these colors are agreed that a person who has any hints, or any elements of evil in them, and evil manifests itself in the sins of the heart.

00:06:42 --> 00:06:47

Sins of the heart are inappropriate ideas or beliefs about Allah.

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


00:06:51 --> 00:07:12

any kind of experience in the heart that is negative about Allah that is based on falsehood. So people who think that Allah has wronged them. People who think Allah is not merciful and generous to the creation, people who accused Allah in His kingdom and His Divine Decree, what he allows to happen.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:44

Or people who have sins that are manifest in terms of words and actions, all of this is evil, and no one went into paradise until they are purified of all evil. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala invites people to seek forgiveness, to seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala when you seek forgiveness, you ask Allah for forgiveness, when you repent, and regret the evil that you have indulged in.

00:07:45 --> 00:08:12

This will purify you, this will cleanse you and the prophets of salaam tourists the dura where we make a dua Allah Hamanaka naman has been Obi Wan Hatha Yoga Karma Yoga Koto will be alumina, Denis, oh Allah purify me cleanse me of sins, and violations just as a white dress is cleansed, from all contaminants and tarnishing and blemishes.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:26

And if the person does not repent enough to purify themselves, Allah subhanaw taala sins upon them trials, hardships suffering in this life,

00:08:27 --> 00:08:46

and this would purify them. And if this is not enough to purify them, then the pains of death would cease to purify them further. And if they are not fully purified by them, then when they enter the grave, the punishment of the grave will seek as a purification.

00:08:52 --> 00:08:52


00:08:53 --> 00:08:55

if the punishment in the grave

00:08:56 --> 00:09:01

does not purify them fully, then the horrors of the Day of Judgment

00:09:04 --> 00:09:06

will purify them further.

00:09:08 --> 00:09:10

And if they're not purified by them,

00:09:11 --> 00:09:13

and if ALLAH does not forgive them,

00:09:16 --> 00:09:41

then they will have to be purified in the hellfire. It's like the fire the billows that heat precious metals in order to purify them. These are the believers. When they are purified only then they will be allowed to enter agenda because Jelena is pure and good, and no amount of evil is allowed into it.

00:09:43 --> 00:10:00

So Allah subhanaw taala teaches us in the Quran, how to be a good person. But so this is why he says welcome letter Budo in here, we're Bill Wiley Dainius. And these verses capture all of what good really is in more detail than what we spoke about.

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

Previously and your your Lord has made it an obligation that you only worship Him.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:22

That you only live your life for him. People think many people think that worship is something I do on the side, that I am here to work mates, and live life and then have Allah on this side as a compliment.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:26

And that's,

00:10:27 --> 00:10:41

you know, the reality is the reality of life is the other way around, is that you are here to worship Allah, you are here to seek ALLAH, and the details of your life are just the necessary details of a wealthy life.

00:10:43 --> 00:11:00

So the center of your life is the worship of Allah, and your devotion to Allah, and your connection to Allah, that's what your life is about. The rest is secondary, the rest complements that main mission.

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

So if you live this life, thinking that you are here, to educate yourself, to get a job, or build a business, and

00:11:12 --> 00:11:16

get finances, and marry,

00:11:18 --> 00:11:40

and have children and create your own legacy, and your own grandeur and greatness, and then it's nice to have Allah and decide. So from time to time to worship Allah, Allah give you what you want, but that's on the side, I'll pray the five daily prayers. If I pray them, I'll first Ramadan for you.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:46

You know, I'm not so happy with it, but I will pay it.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:49

And hence is a nice journey to go on.

00:11:52 --> 00:12:04

But my life is about me about my family, and about my success and about my reputation, and about my enjoyment and about what my achievements. That's not what life is for.

00:12:06 --> 00:12:41

That is theft. No matter how he says it looks like no matter how indulge we are in it. This is affects life is to worship Allah and Allah says one Mahala children in our insert in that era, I have only worship, I have only created the jinn and mankind to worship me. That's why you are created. This is why there is Earth. This is why there are skies. This is where there is that we can breathe. This is why there is vegetation that grows this is why there is food that we can eat.

00:12:43 --> 00:12:51

This is why there are seeds that we can fail. This is why there is water that we can drink to worship Allah. And this is why there is livelihood.

00:12:53 --> 00:13:01

Because humans being on earth with its needs and the needs of their body, that needs to be some kind of interaction and mutual interest.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:06

But that's not the main story, the main stories, Allah

00:13:07 --> 00:13:19

let's get this right. bukanlah taboo. Illa Yeah, who will validate everything else in your life should follow from your worship of Allah, your loyalty to Allah, you truth is to Allah.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:28

You didn't happen to be on Earth. And then Allah came and interjected into your life to force himself into onto it.

00:13:31 --> 00:13:39

Allah brought you here, he brought you here, he puts you here. He puts you here on a mission. That's what you are for?

00:13:40 --> 00:13:44

Some fool we speak to our children about what would you like to be in the future?

00:13:45 --> 00:14:02

We need to speak to them about where do they want to end up after this life? Do they want to end up with Allah close to Allah in paradise? Or are they going to allow chiffon to take them to the hellfire? That's the main question about the future of our kids and ourselves.

00:14:04 --> 00:14:09

will one day near Santa, so you give Allah his rights you live true to Allah.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:21

And then who has the next right upon you, your parents. The fact that Allah brought you into this life through them means that you owe them and you can never pay them back.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:33

You have to give them you have to look after them. When when they grow old and weak, you have to take care of them, show them mercy, be forgiving to their mistakes.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:38

Take care of them as they took care of you when you were a child

00:14:39 --> 00:14:47

and not throw them in retirement homes. And that shows you a culture that dispenses of the disposes of

00:14:49 --> 00:14:58

the parents and considers them outdated and a burden just to throw them in the retirement homes.

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

and see them once or twice a year, thinking we're civilized just by doing that, and we're doing them a favor.

00:15:09 --> 00:15:11

This is a culture of immorality,

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

a culture of wickedness and evil.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:28

If you're ungrateful to your parents, and that's what they teach kids nowadays, your parents are outdated. Now, that doesn't mean parents don't do mistakes. Most parents do a lot of blunders.

00:15:30 --> 00:15:33

But we are supposed to be moral. Regardless, we're

00:15:35 --> 00:15:41

supposed to take care of all parents, be dutiful to them, try to pay them back because you will never be able to pay them fully.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:48

And then be good to your relatives to those who close next, next and kin.

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

Be generous to them. Then Allah says

00:15:55 --> 00:16:14

you went to bed veritably the era in the mobile era, and I can always wanna share ownership on your behavior for and do not squander your money. Don't Don't do not be extravagant in what you spent. Because the provision that Allah gave you here is to help you get by life is not about getting more enjoyment.

00:16:16 --> 00:16:36

Getting the next time you try everything until you become desensitized to it, it becomes normalized. You want the next thing, and the next luxury and the next vacation. And the next next entertainment. The next time you keep chasing your desire until it becomes your God and your Lord and you lose yourself in that.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:53

pursuing our pleasures is a bottomless pit you will never reach the bottom of it. You will never get never get enough of it. Why? Because he is not created for that. And it gives you false promise. You can only feel fulfilled

00:16:54 --> 00:17:06

and actualized when you fulfill the mission for which you are here on Earth, worship your Lord and everything that follows from it like taking care of your parents being good to others.

00:17:07 --> 00:17:26

Then Allah says what are the idea that cannot blue let an Elan okay cover that up so far Columbus, the photographer the man woman masala and do not overspend. Do not squander your money. Do not let your hand go loose with spending. And do not be miserly. Be moderate spend on what you need.

00:17:27 --> 00:17:28

Spend on what's good.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:35

There are people who have surplus money and they say I don't know what to do with it. They buy things they don't need.

00:17:36 --> 00:17:38

They go on vacations.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:42

Without any true benefit.

00:17:45 --> 00:17:52

Make sure that you use your money to cover your basic needs and then to build more credit with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:55 --> 00:17:56

The prophets of Allah honey we set it up

00:17:59 --> 00:18:02

once slaughter chimps, some sheep,

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

and he instructed his family to give it away to people who need then the profits are seldom returned home later on during the day and he asked combat the Amina Shah, how much of that sheep was left?

00:18:21 --> 00:18:22

They said

00:18:23 --> 00:18:48

back in your Qatif, it the shoulder of the sheep remained only that piece remained everything was gone was given to people who need the profits loss and they've said, but yet here, where they haven't get. What we mean is the whole sheep and the shoulder was gone. Meaning the Prophet SAW Selim was assessing and praising things based on their value in the Hereafter.

00:18:51 --> 00:19:35

And Allah says in number Kamisato, recycling Mahisha where you're gonna be bad, he could be wrong, but it's your Lord who gives more in abundance to some, and he gives with a measure to others. Yes, you can work and you can work hard. You can set up a business and you can dedicate your life to a successful business. You might make it and you might not make it. And don't be fooled by people who will tell you there is a foolproof way to richness. This world is in the hands of Allah but you are supposed to try your best and you are supposed to earn a living for a greater purpose. This should not be your ultimate goal. But the hour again, because of we are poisoned with capitalism to the

00:19:35 --> 00:19:41

core. We don't realize we only assess success by how much finances you have.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:59

But there are people who are successful family people who are successful in their religion and their mission in the worship of Allah who are socially successful and good with other people morally successful, who are successful in so many areas of life but all of that doesn't matter.

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

to a mind that is poisoned with capitalism. The only criterion is wealth and money. Even if the wealthy person is immoral, even if they are a criminal, even if they are a thief and a liar, still we look up to them.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:22

If you find this in yourself, you need to

00:20:23 --> 00:20:27

revise how you look at life again, you need to review that again seriously.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:54

Then Allah says what are tough to do? Ola has Shiota Anglican natinal Zuko, whom are a year in Nakata, hometown of Arcadia, do not kill your children. Do not murder your children out of fear that you would not be able to spend on them, you would not have enough finances. People think this was only a matter of the past. And now we don't have it. But now people are killing their children for their own desires, how?

00:20:55 --> 00:21:04

Abortion and it's even a discussion. It's a discussion because some people want to enjoy their life. People who want to

00:21:06 --> 00:21:12

exercise sexuality without limits, and they want to enjoy themselves without consequences.

00:21:13 --> 00:21:15

So they can kill their children.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:25

Nevermind why this is civilization. This is this civilization and human rights. That's what happens to humanity when they turn away from their Creator.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:29

Their measures are completely confused.

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

Allah says well that's a Columbus Xena in a whole kind of a hit on was to not come near as Xena Do not come near adultery, fornication, anyhow long relationship. Any intimacy outside the wedlock between a husband and a wife is a serious infringement. Be careful. Be careful

00:21:58 --> 00:22:15

because it could lead to Zina, and if it leads to Zina. That's a huge violation. Allah calls it in Nankana fascia such an evil despicable evil. We're Salah Sabina and what an evil way to fulfill one's desires and emotions.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:21

Having girlfriend haram and mistress haram,

00:22:23 --> 00:22:38

boyfriend Pom, be careful that we poison your heart and will take you away from Allah. It's evil, no matter how sweet you feel it is in your youth. Be careful of that. I'm speaking here addressing specifically the youth. Be careful.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:46

Be careful people lost their heart and their religion and their Islam completely because of something like that.

00:22:48 --> 00:23:28

Allah created us and He knows how these things affect us. Well talk to us and let you help them Allahu Allah will help and do not kill the sacred soul. The life that Allah gave to humans is sacred. You're not supposed to violate it. You're not supposed to mess with it is sanctified by Allah. And it can only be compromised or it can only be taken by the command of Allah. We humans don't have this right. We don't have this right. We can't legislate about that outside the legislation of Allah. We can't act upon that other than what Allah commands. It's a huge violation.

00:23:30 --> 00:23:58

All of this is from the wisdom that Allah subhanaw taala has given us I'm gonna go quickly over the rest. Allah says what I talked about a moment ago at me in lability, here is a table of action. There's an orphan, and they inherited money, and you are in charge of that you're watching over their wealth and their well being. Make sure you approach their wealth with their best interest in mind. That's a responsibility. You hold their money in trust, take good care of it. Treat it better than you treat your own money.

00:24:00 --> 00:24:02

Again, being truthful, being honest.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:15

Well for Kayla, either Clinton was a noble cause passing muster cane, and when you measure in selling in trading, give people the rights. Give people their rights, do not give

00:24:16 --> 00:24:22

you know weights that are deficient, do not promise things and don't deliver.

00:24:23 --> 00:24:43

Deliver them in full. So be righteous in your business and your dealings. You see all of the covers a lot of areas of our life. Allah gives us the guidance and he shows us the way to Paradise. Then Allah says what type of woman Elisa that can be here in Assam, Alba Salah well for the cooloola, a Kenyan homeschooler and do not engage, do not speak.

00:24:45 --> 00:24:48

Do not act on things you have no knowledge about.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:54

And that's a problem today everyone because the Prophet SAW sent him said

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

about the signs of the Day of Judgment process and said where

00:25:00 --> 00:25:14

Java couldn't be the European bureau. And you will find everyone is so proud of their opinion. People admire their own thinking and opinion. They believe that they are the most intelligent, the most educated, that they know the most.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:52

When a lot of what people know is actually misunderstanding. So Allah warns us, be careful, don't speak, don't act, don't engage in things you don't have proper knowledge about and what that means that when you have to engage in something, seek the knowledge. Understand that people speak about Islam without knowledge about Allah without knowledge about marriage without knowledge about public affairs without knowledge. And what happens they bring about more damage to people not realizing why. Because it's a matter of personal pride. It's me, I know I'm going to I have the solution. I can change the world.

00:25:53 --> 00:26:03

So make sure you don't speak about anything unless you have proper knowledge and expertise, and proper understanding about it upward. Oh, yeah. That was the Fulani. Were looking for stuff.

00:26:11 --> 00:26:30

And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala sayyidina, Muhammad Ali, he was he about Allah then says, What attempts you fill out the mala in rockin and rollin who developed ALLAH, do not walk with pride of Earth. Don't be arrogant. Don't be fool of yourself.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:38

You will not be able to pierce the earth, the earth is stronger than you the earth that is inanimate object

00:26:39 --> 00:26:52

is stronger than you and you will not be able to compete with the height of the mountains, you're such a tiny creature, know your place. Don't act with arrogance. No one acts with arrogance except when the heart is empty.

00:26:53 --> 00:26:54

Of the

00:26:55 --> 00:27:23

love of Allah and the appreciation of the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala because when the heart is filled with knowledge of Allah, fear of Allah, understanding the glory of Allah, the person will not feel proud about themselves. They know that they are here on a mission and they will go about fulfilling it. It's not about who you are and what you are and how people admire you, or how people respect you. All of that is irrelevant. All of that is besides the point of life.

00:27:25 --> 00:27:38

Couldn't do that he can as a Yahoo and don't become a crew, ha all of this. It's evil. The evil consequences of all of this is hated by your Lord is disliked by your Lord. Allah knows it's evil and he hates it and he doesn't want it for you.

00:27:41 --> 00:27:59

What are your body to heal? We're in fiscal year Allahu Allah. And Allah does not love disbelief for you. It's evil, it ruins you. It destroys you. Allah doesn't love it for you, he dislikes it for you. And if you are grateful and thankful and truthful to Allah, Allah is pleased with that for you.

00:28:01 --> 00:28:43

Then Allah says that it can him or her in a color book have been an Hekima. This is from the wisdom that your Lord has revealed to you. So it says this is what Islam is about is about wise living is about more living. It's about good living. That's it really, but we have to make our life about Allah. Our biggest problem is that we have been brainwashed to believe it's all about me. It's all about my achievements. It's all about my future. It's all about my wealth. It's all about me and my we have turned ourselves into Gods. We need Allah subhanaw taala when nothing without Allah we are here to worship Allah simple. Wake up determined to worship Allah and be thankful and to do your

00:28:43 --> 00:29:18
