a coulomb deserting be there or couldn't be there at

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

all praise is due to Allah. We praise Him.

00:01:35--> 00:02:31

We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides Nana can lead astray. And whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray Nam 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 only he was, he was selling his his servant and His Messenger or you who believe, fear Allah as he shouldn't be feared and died, that in a state of submission to Him as Muslims, all mankind, be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person. And from him he created his wife, and from them both he

00:02:31--> 00:03:11

created many men and women and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is ever an old watcher or video or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah, fearing 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 those of the Almighty Allah. And the best guidance is that of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was selling them.

00:03:13--> 00:03:26

And the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters. For all the newly invented matters in religion are heretic innovation and Bidda and every bit is misguidance.

00:03:27--> 00:03:29

Abdullah Ambassador the Allahu Anhu Allah says I was behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam

00:04:45--> 00:04:57

he addresses me with the following words. Yeah, Hola. Hola, young boy. Willem is a child is a male child that is below nine years old.

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

So you can imagine that

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

Prophet sallallahu Sallam is giving

00:05:03--> 00:05:20

us a piece of advice that is so powerful and consequential to a young boy. So it stays with him for the rest of his life. And it stays as one of the most outstanding statements of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and Muslim should ever live by.

00:05:22--> 00:05:26

So he says, Oh young boy. I'm about to teach you some words.

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

F of allah how you

00:05:30--> 00:05:34

preserve Allah, Allah will preserve you

00:05:39--> 00:05:43

now we are human beings. How can we preserve Allah

00:05:45--> 00:05:56

you preserve the trust that Allah gave you. That's how you stay loyal to Allah. That means you stay loyal to Allah truthful to Allah, He will preserve you.

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

Just Allah said to Bani Israel, whoa, for me, I have the goofy bit I had the Eco, fulfill My covenant, I will fulfill my side of it for you.

00:06:10--> 00:06:15

If you preserve the law and the legislation and the guidance of Allah,

00:06:17--> 00:06:33

Allah will preserve you. Allah will take care of your affairs. If you do too, Jack, you preserve the rights of Allah. You're mindful of Allah. You give Allah his rights.

00:06:34--> 00:06:39

He will protect you and preserve you, you will find Him wherever you are.

00:06:42--> 00:07:18

Any location, any situation, any place, any activity, you will find Allah with you. So you can live with the protection and the aid and assistance of Allah. How, by fulfilling your obligation to him being dutiful to Allah, giving Allah his rights. Allah has rights upon your hearts. Allah has rights upon your tongue. Allah has right to put your mind. Allah has rights upon your actions. Allah has rights upon your time. Allah has rights upon your lifestyle.

00:07:19--> 00:07:26

You are here in this world for Allah. This life that you live and enjoy is not yours.

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

This body that you occupy is not yours.

00:07:31--> 00:07:40

The air that you breathe is not yours, the lungs that breathe the air in it are not yours, this life that you have

00:07:41--> 00:07:44

is given to you is a test it belongs to Allah.

00:07:45--> 00:07:50

So nothing is yours because at one point in time, you were nothing.

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

You were a non existent thing.

00:07:56--> 00:08:12

Now you pop up on Earth and you say, my body, my life, my mind, my time, my thing, right? Where did you get this mind from? When you were literally nothing.

00:08:16--> 00:08:18

You are always gift to you.

00:08:20--> 00:08:50

So this life, everything in it and you yourself belong to Allah. But you were given that as a trust so that you give it its right. That's the right of Allah on you. That's how you preserve Allah. That's how you are mindful of the rights of Allah. That's how you fulfill those obligations upon you. When you live like that Allah will be with you. When you when you do that, you will find Allah wherever you go.

00:08:51--> 00:09:03

Your affairs will be taken care of your finances will be taking care of your health we'll be taking care of your heart we'll be taking care of your family we'll be taking care of your future we'll be taken care of.

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

So be mindful of Allah give Allah his rights. He will protect you He will preserve you

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

what he does toughest Adela

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

and if you ask

00:09:25--> 00:09:29

if you will requests if you need something ask of Allah.

00:09:31--> 00:09:44

Ask Allah if you truly give Allah his rights, and you know as well. You can ask Allah when you need because you know that everything in the hands of Allah. So when you are with me, don't tend to people first.

00:09:46--> 00:09:49

Your mind goes to people when you're in need.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

The first thing that flashes in your mind is another human being. And when you do that you violate the rights of Allah.

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

Because the one that you should run for you should run to for help is Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

So when you

00:10:10--> 00:10:12

ask for something, ask of Allah

00:10:14--> 00:10:23

what is the Center for Istanbul and if you need help and seek help seek the help of Allah. Now with Allah's help comes through a human being, that's fine.

00:10:25--> 00:10:39

And that includes that if you know that there is a skill you need, and someone else possesses it possesses that you approach them as a means for which Allah gives you help, not as they are the possessor and the source of that help.

00:10:40--> 00:11:14

Because when you live with Allah, we don't deny reality. This physical reality, the dynamics of this life were devised by Allah, we don't act in denial to them when we have faith. But we trace everything back to a source Allah subhanho wa Taala you speak to people who can help you finance financially, you speak to people who can give you the guidance, but you know that they are not the source, your heart is attached to Allah and you know, Allah help through helps you through them. With this, you maintained the rights of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:11:16--> 00:11:22

You're asking an equal a human being, but your heart is asking Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:11:24--> 00:11:54

What an alma mater which terminates, any info can be shown in the midfoot Okay, eluxury Incredible Lola, no, grasp this knowledge hold on to it. That if everyone all of humanity, gather together, put the resources together, and the power and the faculties together to benefit you with one thing, they will not be able to benefit you except with something that Allah wrote for you.

00:11:56--> 00:12:01

So yes, Allah gave people capacity, Allah gave people potential, but it is all limited.

00:12:03--> 00:12:07

And it's all confined and conditional upon the power of Allah.

00:12:09--> 00:12:38

If all of humanity gathers to benefit you and Allah says, No, you will, they will not be able to benefit you. So you know, who is the ultimate cause of everything who is in charge of everything? Humans have capacity, they have potential, they have ability, it's from Allah. And it's controlled by Allah and they can only use it within the range that Allah allows. If Allah says no, it will not happen

00:12:39--> 00:12:53

what are we still not alone your Guru can me over okay, let me shake market cutter Bala Lake, and if they were to gather together to harm you, all of humanity, to harm you to bring any form of harm upon you.

00:12:56--> 00:13:00

Unless it's written by Allah to befall you, it will not happen.

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

So who's in charge here?

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


00:13:08--> 00:13:28

So don't be completely consumed. In the immediate reality that you have. Because all of that there is a background, there is a bigger background, there is a plan unfolding behind the scenes, and that's what your heart should be attached to. That's the world of the unseen. Allah describes the believers and

00:13:31--> 00:13:40

those who believe in the unseen belief in the unseen is the theory that you absorb in your mind. It is something that

00:13:41--> 00:13:42

shapes your heart.

00:13:43--> 00:13:54

And it shapes your thinking, your response, your feelings and everything, it becomes a reality that is more evident than the things you see and hear and smell.

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

Will see it UCLA modified, so health depends have been lifted.

00:14:01--> 00:14:06

And the sheets have dried up, the ink on the sheets has dried up

00:14:07--> 00:14:18

the story of this life, the script of your lifetime has been written and finalized. And no editing, no change is going to be introduced.

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

It's an already decided script.

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

And you're living it out.

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

So don't fear any human being.

00:14:29--> 00:14:47

Don't let your heart get attached to anything other than Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah is in charge, things that happen that you see in the world or the will of Allah. And when you fail to see the purpose and the wisdom behind it.

00:14:49--> 00:14:50

Your heart knows

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

that Allah works in ways we don't understand.

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

Allah is not bound to reveal his wisdom to us. But we are

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

supposed to believe in his wisdom and his knowledge and his mercy.

00:15:05--> 00:15:11

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught me to love and Ibis this when he was less than nine years old.

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

And this is something we can live by.

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

And if we truly commit to these beautiful words,

00:15:22--> 00:15:28

a great deal of our distress, anxiety, and mental illness will go away,

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

will go away.

00:15:32--> 00:15:40

When we stop treating Islam as a theory that we commit to our brain and our mind, without absorbing and living by.

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

When we stop doing that things will start to change.

00:15:49--> 00:15:56

When we stop expecting Allah to prove himself to us, when do we heal ourselves and our existence, our proof that he's there?

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

When we start

00:16:04--> 00:16:14

putting Allah as the first and most important thing in our lives, things will start to change. As long as we keep playing with words, as long as we keep

00:16:15--> 00:16:19

posing as believers but not embodying what faith really is.

00:16:20--> 00:16:23

We will continue to struggle and suffer

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

and future generations will even suffer more. A cola cola was the federal law they were looking for stuff.

00:16:41--> 00:16:55

Alhamdulillah hell behind me salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad in my early he was heavy Jemaine what I do we move on to another companion. Another young companion who is older than Abdullah Abdullah and this

00:16:59--> 00:17:02

Abdullah Ahmad, probably Allah and the Sunnah model and then

00:17:04--> 00:17:08

remember the Bukhari Elohim Allah to Allah connected in his sleigh.

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

Allah Allahu Allah when Mama

00:17:14--> 00:17:18

I forgot I saw the law his Allah Allahu Allah, he was sending them a beaming Kiba Yeah.

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

Or call

00:17:22--> 00:17:25

confit. Dunya Kana Calvary,

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

below seven

00:17:28--> 00:17:42

what can Abdullah ignore on level the Allahu Anhu they are all either MC definite until that is Saba what either are subject to further than totally real myself. What would means the hottie Kelly melodic woman hayati, Kelly Milotic.

00:17:45--> 00:18:07

The prophets Allah Allah seldom approaches Abdullah Omar who was still a younger man, we talking about a teenager at the time most likely. He says the prophets I send them placed his hands on my shoulders. Because the beautiful way of teaching this young man, he places his hands on the shoulders of this young man. And he says,

00:18:08--> 00:18:19

again, the younger man and listen to the beautiful words, confit dunya can Nico remember our Amuro Sabine be in this life as a stranger

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

or a traveler.

00:18:24--> 00:18:27

And Abdullah normally used to repeat

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

these the following words.

00:18:31--> 00:18:35

When nighttime comes, don't expect to wake up in the morning.

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

And when the morning comes, don't expect to make it till the evening of that day.

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

And take from your health,

00:18:47--> 00:18:53

for the time of your illness, and take from this life for the next.

00:18:56--> 00:19:04

So be in this world. That's a way of living. That's a way of being in the world. This is more like a metaphor that you live by.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

A story

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

that you fulfill in that you fulfill in your lifespan

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

that I am here in this world

00:19:16--> 00:19:20

as one of two why the grim stranger

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

or a traveler

00:19:24--> 00:19:34

and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam described or indicated that towards the end of time, that a true believer, a true believer, something we have to emphasize today

00:19:37--> 00:19:40

because unknowingly,

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

hypocrisy is widespread

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

and remind you we look at the time of the Prophet sallahu sell them in hindsight everything all the facts were revealed. They were hypocrites, but had you been living at the time of the prophets Allah sent them you would not know who the April

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Rootsweb they prayed in the first row at the masjid.

00:20:05--> 00:20:08

Some of them gave sadaqa they spoke the best words.

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

They used Quranic words they said that hamdulillah they said

00:20:16--> 00:20:21

some of them even took part in the battles facing the enemy.

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

They were not known they were thought to be believers. So a true believer.

00:20:29--> 00:20:40

The Prophet saw some said better that deanery been on camera, but that photo button or this religion started as a stranger is a strange phenomenon.

00:20:43--> 00:20:48

Muslims were the outcasts part of society of the American society that were considered Renegades

00:20:50--> 00:20:52

splitting from society

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

and even shall return as a strange phenomenon. So true believers

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

would be very scarce would feel as strangers

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

they would not find the support, they will be ostracized.

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

They will be ridiculed.

00:21:16--> 00:21:19

So the Prophet SAW Selim says be in this life as a stranger.

00:21:20--> 00:21:38

Or like a traveler, and what was the difference in the Arabic language the difference between Larry and Andrew Saudi Arabia, someone who stays in a place for a while, but he's not from the from that place, he doesn't belong. He doesn't belong, eventually, he's gonna leave. Let's say you travel.

00:21:41--> 00:21:50

To work for six months in a city or go to go to Alberta work during the summer, maybe for six months. You're a stranger you already

00:21:52--> 00:21:54

feel like you're driving through

00:21:56--> 00:22:08

the cities and you just pass by a city you stop by, buy some coffee and muffins, maybe, and get a meal. Or maybe, you know, stay over a hotel. And carry on.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

Treat this life as one of both.

00:22:13--> 00:22:24

The least attachment is when you are a traveler, you know you're not here, you know, you don't belong here. And you have no business here whatsoever. You just get the necessities and go

00:22:26--> 00:22:32

you know getting to your destination. Where is the travel that has utility, a temporary utility.

00:22:33--> 00:22:38

You see here you want to engage with this life these two levels are allowed for for believers.

00:22:40--> 00:23:02

You want to make some successful business here, fine, we're gonna build a good life here fine. But if Allah has to be number one in your life, and it has to be done in a way that brings about to the creation of Allah, it has doesn't have or it shouldn't be a personal achievement, or something about your personal greatness and grandeur.

00:23:05--> 00:23:18

That's how you go through this life. This is what I used to say to himself and to others. You know, when you when you make it to the night, don't expect to wake up. And Allah says in the Quran, you handed in

00:23:20--> 00:23:29

one atom Mutanda illa Anta Muslim, are you who believe, give Allah who is right in terms of tabla and die not except as the Muslims.

00:23:31--> 00:23:55

So how do I not accept as Muslims because you don't control the moment of your death, you are ready all the time. So when death comes, you're prepared. That's what it means. All the time. You ready? You go to sleep ready to make it to the next life. You wake up, you're ready to transition through the day, every day, every day you're expecting to leave and get out of this life.

00:23:57--> 00:24:06

That's how you should go through this life. Other than that, you will get attached to this world you will lose your focus either minimally

00:24:07--> 00:24:11

or to you know two degrees that will make you completely lost and misguided.

00:24:12--> 00:24:27

But that shouldn't be a struggle that this is not a switch. This is something you work for. With your daily prayer five daily prayers when you pray them with focus and push you and concentration you bring your heart and your mind before Allah not just your body.

00:24:28--> 00:24:39

When you read the words of Allah, you try to absorb the wisdom that Allah put in his divine words. You tried to comply and you didn't find those beautiful words.

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

And when you fast you do it for Allah.

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

You don't box and show off.

00:24:48--> 00:24:54

And what if we do recognize your dog and it doesn't make a difference? There's nothing about boasting or bragging.

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

Because once you do that you have associated

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


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

with Allah subhanaw taala in your action

00:25:04--> 00:25:12

so do things for the sake of Allah. We cover night it's wintertime, the night is so long some people stay up to 12 and one o'clock.

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

Allah has given you a gift, where you can go to bed early, wake up before Fajr play pre in these two,

00:25:20--> 00:25:33

two rockers someone will come and you won't have enough time to sleep at night. So winter is a blessing. The days are short, fast, it's only about 10 hours a day to fast.

00:25:35--> 00:25:41

Just have breakfast, and dinner and you're done. You fasted for a day do that for the sake of Allah.

00:25:43--> 00:25:56

Cry out to Allah to guide your heart to cleanse your heart to remove hate, envy shield, from your heart, the love of this dunya cry out to Allah to help you from this dunya

00:25:59--> 00:26:14

ask Allah for guidance, cry out, recognize your need for Him, and that you are helpless. You cannot save yourself Allah only Allah can save you. So these are two pieces of advice from the prophets, I send them to you two young men.

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

And we know from history that these two young men

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

stayed committed to these words.

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

And the life story was
