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

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

as

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

to be me you you

00:00:55--> 00:01:00

have to say to a

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

German says

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

no

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

many years

00:01:16--> 00:01:19

ago a man he

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

was

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

feefo tea

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

coffee has

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

juicer

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

is

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

yours

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

Welcome to learn your salatu salam.

00:02:33--> 00:02:41

My dearest mothers and sisters in this most beautiful city of Katsina. I asked Allah to bless you.

00:02:43--> 00:02:53

I asked him not to grant your goodness and to open your doors. I asked Allah to grant you the best of spouses who will be the coolness of your eyes.

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

And I asked him,

00:02:57--> 00:03:06

to give you Baraka and blessings in your life in your deal in your dunya. And may Allah grant you success in both as well as in the Africa.

00:03:08--> 00:03:16

I have always heard about this beautiful place that exists somewhere in the northern part of Nigeria.

00:03:17--> 00:03:31

People told me the food is the best. People told me perhaps that the hospitality is the best. They call it the city of

00:03:32--> 00:03:44

hospitality. I was wondering what it meant. And I was also wondering why the word hospital happens to be in that word hospitality.

00:03:45--> 00:04:07

But I guess when you feed someone so much so much that they end up in the hospital, perhaps some people think that is hospitality. To be honest, the meal that I had upon my arrival in the evening yesterday was a sign of the signature hospitality of this beautiful city deserve a love affair.

00:04:10--> 00:04:45

And I really do believe the wombs of all the brothers and sisters that we met has definitely left a mark. They told me many other things about Katsina. But let me not share those with you. One of them was don't go there. strangers, very dangerous, you might not come back. I told them maybe I don't want to come back. So can Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. If you are living here, and you are safe, why would I be so unsafe here.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

I also come from a country where people say it's very dangerous. Don't go there. But it's one of the safest countries in Africa. So I know what is meant. When people say don't go there It means please go there.

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

Alhamdulillah I am here by the help of Allah.

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

Normally, I don't prefer long introductions, because always they have in them something either that is not necessarily something that has a slight bit of inaccuracy, something that might have changed. And they still repeating the same, you know, background or the same message that may not be absolutely accurate anymore. And sometimes they phrase in it. That is unfair when I say unfair. Yes, I'm excited to be here. I consider it an honor. I consider it a gift of Allah. But I'm here for the sake of Allah for the pleasure of Allah. I will never know you personally. In most cases, I will never know you personally. But that doesn't mean I have not come here.

00:05:54--> 00:06:05

I have not come here with goodness. It doesn't mean I have not come here with a message of love with the message of kindness. So I want you to listen very carefully.

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

My brothers,

00:06:08--> 00:06:35

my sisters, the brothers here are very few in number. They told me you have to deliver more than one talk in Katsina I told him but why. They said you will realize and understand when you get there. The number of people especially the sisters who would like to attend, there are so many that we don't have a space to cater for everyone all at once. So what has happened is so Pamela

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

we decided to have two talks in one place.

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

Our sisters also coming in and we asked him not to make it easy for them to

00:06:48--> 00:07:25

I want to remind you of something very, very serious, very serious. We are in the house of Allah. We are in the house of Allah. Take a look at the walls. Take a look at the tiles. Take a look at the complex. Take a look at the fans the chandelier or the lights. Take a look at all of this one law IE it will bear witness for you or against you. This is the house of Allah. It is not your house or mine. It is not something ordinary. It is not something ordinary where

00:07:26--> 00:08:16

I can say and do as I wish. No. It is the house of Allah. It is a blessing. Sacred home there was a man at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he walked into the masjid. He was a beggar when we don't know his name, because usually, when negative things are made mention of what is more important than the name is the lesson. The mistake we make today, we mentioned the names of those who do bad things. So the lesson is not learned. But rather we shame someone and we get joy out of shaming a person rather than out of learning a lesson. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told by some of his wives that some men came to them, asking them about the Baba and the

00:08:16--> 00:08:43

worship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when they heard how much we worship Allah, they said, Well, one of them said, I will stand in prayer all night, and I'm not going to, I'm not going to stop. The other one says I'm going to fast every day, and I'm not going to stop. And the other one said, I'm going to do this all day. And I'm not going to stop when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told about it, he addressed the metal from the member.

00:08:44--> 00:08:50

And he didn't say the names of the people because the lesson is more important than the name. He said.

00:08:52--> 00:09:04

I mean, what is it with some who have come to my house to ask what I do, and they have promised that they will not they will not. Someone said he will not marry the other one said he will not

00:09:05--> 00:09:51

break his past meaning is going too fast every single day, etc. One said he's going to stand in prayer all night, every night etc. So the province of Assam used this beautiful example of not giving the names of those who did bad deeds, in most cases in almost all cases, because the minute you give a name, you have personalized the criticism. And you have you have actually minimized the broad the benefit of the oma people begin to think that man is bad or That woman is bad. And they don't think where am I and what am I doing? But when you say we should not be doing this, then everyone has benefited including the speaker by Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us benefit. So I was

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

telling you a man entered the masjid. He was a Bedouin he did not know much about the masjid. When he walked into the machine. He decided

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

I need the toilet. I need the toilet to urinate. So he looked around, he saw a quiet corner. And he really he began to relieve himself. What did he do? He began to relieve himself. He was doing eating in the corner, and the Sahaba the companions of Rasulullah saw Salah they saw when they saw this, obviously, what would you do? If you see someone doing something bad or wrong, you would not feel good, right? You would actually want to stop them immediately. It's not a bad thing to stop them. But how would you stop them is what makes you a good Muslim

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

or otherwise.

00:10:41--> 00:11:05

So they started screaming and shouting the man they told him to stop and so on. They threatened to beat him up. They threatened to beat him up. Imagine a man coming into the machine or a woman coming into the machine and something is wrong, or the dress code is totally off. Or for example, they start urinating in the corner I don't think here in Katrina, they will come out alive

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

May Allah make it easy?

00:11:09--> 00:11:16

So what happened this man they went to him and they were stuck in the province of Milan he was told them

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

Can you hear me? At the back? Can you hear me?

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

Can you hear me in the back?

00:11:25--> 00:11:29

Mashallah, yes, he's coming from the front. At the back. Can you hear me?

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

Mashallah, okay.

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

So

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

don't,

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

don't go and get a bucket of water so that you can

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

imagine the blessing.

00:11:59--> 00:12:14

We have not sent you except as a mercy for the wounds for every one of losses you owe Mohammed Peace be on him. We have sent you as a man see for all

00:12:15--> 00:12:30

my brothers and sisters in the name of Islam. People are being merciless. People are void of mercy, but they are supposed to be following the message of the Most Merciful that came through the one who was sent as a mercy.

00:12:31--> 00:12:54

He told the man he told them don't stop him imagine and I always try to picture this because what law it is the height of mercy when a person is urinating, you cannot stop them halfway. You cannot stop them halfway, they will get sick, they will get evil. Perhaps imagine evaluating someone says stop what are you going to do?

00:12:56--> 00:13:15

So as much as we might think it is funny, but it's not funny. It is actually the height of mercy. The problem is already there. The urination is already there, let the men finish and we will wash it when they went to get the water. He told that man you know what, this is the house of law.

00:13:17--> 00:13:35

It is not fit for these type of things. It is for SMA it is for the remembrance of Allah it is for goodness, it is what he meant that it is for a recitation of the Quran, tilawat etc, etc. Good things. It is not for this type of thing.

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

The man understood immediately Well,

00:13:39--> 00:14:33

this is the message I was not supposed to do what I did within the moment. But he was still scared. Or he still had a little bit of negativity in his heart regarding those who wanted to beat him up. My sisters when you see someone doing something wrong, you need to correct them with love. Do not get joy out of exposing someone, the minute you are enjoying exposing someone that is the minute that you have started fooling yourself. You understand? Sometimes we see someone do something wrong. We are itching to tell the world that this person is a fraud, right? If you want to save someone, you might need to tell people certain things, but be limited in the way you speak. Understand that

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

Allah can expose you even while you're sitting in the corner of your house. The Hadith says whoever exposes another Ummah will expose them even if they are sitting in the corner of a house inside. They will be exposed by Allah And will we ever cover someone else's weakness if it is a personal weakness? I'm not talking about the person who is going around doing evil to one person after another session.

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

person needs to be warned.

00:15:04--> 00:15:19

But we are talking of the weaknesses, the individual weaknesses of people don't get excited to expose or to speak bad. How many of us do not have sin at all? Put up your hand. You have Mohsen, put up your hand.

00:15:21--> 00:15:31

Look at me, my hands are the ones that are down. Allah forgive us. Everyone says two different levels of sin. That doesn't mean

00:15:32--> 00:15:44

that the other one whom you see sinning is away from the mercy of Allah, they will also achieve the mercy of Allah Watch out, be careful of yourself. Yeah, you

00:15:55--> 00:15:55

know,

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

all you who believe.

00:16:01--> 00:16:09

Concentrate on yourself, Worry about yourself, those who are straight will not affect you, if you yourself are rightly guided.

00:16:11--> 00:16:44

When you know, and you know that you know, and you know that what you know is knowledge, you know, so, once you know you will be able to put into practice, when you are worried about putting into practice what you know, you are not worried about the deviance of another person. When someone is calling you towards the disobedience of Allah, you automatically will not go because you know Allah recognize Allah and your problems are solved. The problem with us is we don't recognize Allah. Let me tell you, who is Allah who was.

00:16:46--> 00:16:55

He is the Creator, the Sustainer, the provider, the cherisher, the narration, the sustain and the one who's going to bring to you, your husband's

00:16:56--> 00:17:08

The one who is going to bring happiness to you, the one who's going to solve your marital problems, the one who's going to give you your children, the one who is going to give you everything you want. He is the old none.

00:17:10--> 00:17:33

He is the owner of the happiness that you are looking for. He is the owner of everything. So if you want more than what I said just now you just need to develop a close relationship with a mom, your problems are solved. Why do we have problems today? We have developed relations with a law. We have developed relations with those besides Allah.

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

Allah Petunia, Maliki,

00:17:38--> 00:17:46

I'm surprised that the one who is asking for the world from someone who is not the owner of it, so Panama,

00:17:47--> 00:18:18

you are asking for money from someone who's not the real owner of money. Take that money away from them. You are asking for happiness through the disobedience of Allah, how can you get that happiness who wants to be happy, all of us who wants to be content, all of us, you just obey Allah, Allah, Allah, He, you will make content even if you don't have a home to live in. And even if you don't have the next meal, and don't know where it's going to come from, Allah will provide

00:18:22--> 00:18:23

me

00:18:33--> 00:19:18

in such abundance that it is unmeasured. It's not measured abundance, when you bear patients, people tell you, my sister, you have a problem. When patients bear patients, what do the sisters say? After one year of summer? After two years of suffering? They say I have made enough trouble, am I right? They say I am not tired. Allah is not listening to me. But what do you want? Whatever you want, maybe it's not good for you. Maybe the person you want to marry is the wrong person to handle Ah, you don't know perhaps you might have children with that person who will be turmoil. They wouldn't be a means of your depression and stress surpluses. I know what will be the outcome of this

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

particular marriage. So I don't want it to be Who is

00:19:29--> 00:20:00

he is the owner and the Knower of the unseen. He knows what has happened. He knows what is happening. He knows what will happen. He knows what will not happen. If it were to happen, how it would have happened. Allahu Akbar Yana MoMA con una llamada macoun dakka dakka kuno Subhana Allah. Allah knows the past tense. He knows the present. He knows the future. He knows that which is not

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

Going to be in the future. If it was brought in the future, how it would have happened. He knows that Do you want to hear the evidence of that from the forum?

00:20:11--> 00:20:19

So I want to give you an example and I'm giving this example in Katrina because of a reason. Make it easy for you.

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

I've heard good things about this place Mashallah.

00:20:24--> 00:20:44

You want to get married, you urgently want to get married to someone you want to marry some handle and you know what? Allah doesn't open that door. And you're saying Allah didn't hear me. Surrender to Allah when things happen the way you wanted, say Alhamdulillah. It happened. When things do not happen the way you wanted it say

00:20:45--> 00:21:11

two times, it happened the way I wanted it. Allah looked after you, they protected you, he gave you He granted you be happy, life is short. In the future, you might get what you want. And as soon as you get it, you are depressed. You are sad. It turns out to be something you did not expect it to be us to those who have what they were asking for. from Allah, people are asking for years on end and a man doesn't give them

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

rahimullah Allah. He says Meena

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

Mati.

00:21:19--> 00:21:22

anomala, behind he was

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

a killer.

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

Lady.

00:21:34--> 00:21:53

One of the diseases of mankind is that he doesn't recognize the gift that Allah has given him. When Allah kept you away from something you don't recognize that that is a gift of Allah because you don't know who is Allah. He is your boss. He loves you more than you love yourself.

00:21:54--> 00:22:43

Allah loves you more than you love yourself, what is it you want? What is it I want? I only want one thing, and you should only want one thing, agenda. That's all those. This life is short. This life is only 17 years if you are lucky, some a little bit more. The hottie says the average age of myeloma between 16 and 17 years, I'm sure you know that. If you are over the age of 70, you are fortunate a man is giving you a chance to make peace with him before you meet him. I'm not joking. I don't need to lie to you. I don't need to sugarcoat my words, you are beyond 70 prepare for the meeting with Allah. But that does not mean that if you are less than 70 you can do what do you want

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

to talk about?

00:22:48--> 00:22:52

So my beloved daughters, my beloved sisters, my mother's

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

you

00:22:55--> 00:22:59

one of the diseases mentioned was that a person is in

00:23:01--> 00:23:45

England, gift of Allah by Allah giving them something or Allah giving them something they really did not want and they don't understand this is the gift of Allah, it came to you it came to your door and when they are making it to outlaw Allah, take me out of this. Take me out of this. Take me out of this. And Allah through His mercy, he says, I am not taking you out because I know what you don't know. I know if you come out of this, you are going to cry. You are going to cry of Allah. But do you know you're going to cry? No, but you keep on making dry and you say hola I'm coding Oh Allah, I'm trying. I am this I am your slave I am in worship but your your

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

your

00:23:49--> 00:24:11

your sujood is no longer Mashallah you start obeying Allah and you start trying to allied reading and analysis through my messy I didn't give you what you wanted. But you know what, now that you are really really really trying to Panama? What does Allah do? He says, Let me give my slave what they want. So Pamela, then what happens?

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

Subhan Allah

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

as soon as you get what you wanted,

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

what happens?

00:24:23--> 00:24:59

You ask Allah again. Oh Allah, take me back to where I was. Take me back to where I was. Why? Because you didn't understand who is allowed to talk to you from the beginning. When you ask Allah He hears you, he loves you. He knows. He has answered it better than what you have asked him. Imagine if you ask Allah O Allah subhanho wa Taala Give me something that is not good for you. And he didn't give you who loves you more you are Allah. You don't even love yourself as much as Allah.

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

As he protected you from something you didn't even know was going to damage you. So Allah gave this to you. You want to read this topic that I am delivering today, open the book and have it written by Him you will find the topic there.

00:25:17--> 00:25:50

exactly as I worded it, Allah make it easy for us. My brothers, my sisters, mainly they we are sisters and mothers here, and my children who are here today, I'm reminded you learn to understand who is allowed. I was giving you that evidence from the Quran to prove to you that Allah knows what will not happen if it were to happen, how it would have happened, how many of you have read Surah cancha have put up your hand

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

if you have read it in your lifetime, put up your hand and

00:25:56--> 00:26:03

Mashallah put your heads down. Generally we read it. Some of the people read it on a Friday generally.

00:26:05--> 00:26:29

But it is a super read normally I prefer to tell people that the entire poem is the word of Allah. You start from the beginning, you leave a marker as you left off, when you started, you read as much as you can to put a marker where you stopped and you continue in that way it is more pleasant than anything else. Try to complete one entire

00:26:31--> 00:26:41

every so often. My mother's my sisters start your day by reading one verse of the Quran Allah beautify you you no longer need makeup.

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

You no longer need makeup.

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

You know what?

00:26:47--> 00:26:52

Man has to fulfill late hustle number two Who

00:26:53--> 00:27:00

did you hear that? You want to know the best makeup that you can ever have? Listen to it. Man hustle.

00:27:02--> 00:27:03

Hustle now what?

00:27:06--> 00:27:07

You want me to translate that?

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

The best makeup?

00:27:11--> 00:27:41

Who ever is Salah is beautified at night. Allah beautifies their face during the day. So Pamela Did you hear that? When your Salah is beautiful at night, your face is beautiful during the day. So you are happy with the face of my day you you don't need to change it because you are embarrassed to walk around with the blessing of Allah that Allah has bestowed upon you.

00:27:42--> 00:27:51

Allah has bestowed upon you you are happy with the identity of McCain you it is amazing. It is unique. Yes, everyone wants to look good.

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

is okay. But today my beloved daughters we are overdoing it so much so that your phone does not

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

to open it any more.

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

You follow what I'm saying?

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

You know on the phone, we have face recognition.

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

People set it

00:28:15--> 00:28:31

once they could make up the phone doesn't open anymore while you just crossed one limit. Maybe you don't look like you anymore. So Corolla lead to love Allah, He loves you. He gave you what he gave you. He knows what he gave you learn to love him.

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

So

00:28:34--> 00:28:43

listen to what Allah says. He speaks to us about the story of Musa alayhis salaam with a man known as el cheapo. Have you heard the name?

00:28:45--> 00:28:52

Mashallah, is it true that you are not responding to me? Or maybe I can tell you because of all the fans.

00:28:53--> 00:29:03

Now, today we hear there are real facts. Normally they say these are facts No, these are real facts. Can you see them? Mashallah electric fence?

00:29:05--> 00:29:06

The story of

00:29:09--> 00:29:12

so Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:29:14--> 00:29:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:29:18--> 00:29:21

that Musa alayhis salam met a man known as a civil

00:29:24--> 00:29:28

and Allah says this man has knowledge that we have given him.

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

So Mousavi Salaam asked him, can I join you? Can I be with you for a while? Can I travel with you? He says, If you travel with me, you won't understand what I'm doing. You will be questioning me. He says, I will travel with you on condition that I will not question you. I want to learn, I want to see. So they went together.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

Three things happened. I'm not going to tell you what, three, I'm going to tell you one. I want you to go back and revise

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

The three you need to do some homework. Are you going to do it? Go back

00:30:06--> 00:30:11

and read the other three stories. What happened? Three things happened. I'll tell you one of them.

00:30:13--> 00:30:19

They traveled on a boat to cross the river, the water.

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

And suddenly

00:30:24--> 00:30:27

he started to make a hole in that boat.

00:30:28--> 00:30:33

How can you make a hole on the boat of someone Imagine you are in a taxi

00:30:34--> 00:30:46

or someone else's car, and you decide to puncture the tire. People are going to say What's your problem? Right? How can you puncture the tire for nothing of these people?

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

Right. So when he

00:30:54--> 00:31:05

says to him, what are you doing? What did you do? He says, I told you, you won't be patient. And so Musa alayhis salam kept quiet. He says it's okay. Excuse me.

00:31:06--> 00:31:26

Later on, two more things happened. And after that, this man he said, Now I cannot be with you thrice you have questioned me. Now we can part ways because I did what Allah told me to do, what did I tell him to do? So this is one of the verses where the reply comes.

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

The human psyche nyama.

00:31:37--> 00:31:37

To

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

many, young,

00:31:49--> 00:32:50

beautiful beautifuly. Allah says that man told Busan a Salam. As for the boat, it belonged to two men who are working very hard, earning a living. And later on upstream, there was a an unjust ruler, who was taking away all the good bowls. He was stealing the good balls, when you see a car, and it's nice, you take it away, when it's not nice, you leave it. So he said, a man told him to create that hole for the defect in that particular boat, so that the key later on, the ruler would not take the boat, one hole, you can repair it, it's okay. But to lose the entire boat, you lose your entire sustenance. So I want to tell you something, that boat was not taken by the team. Why? Because it

00:32:50--> 00:32:51

had

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

a hole.

00:32:57--> 00:33:09

If it didn't have a hole, they were going to lose the whole boat, but the boat was not taken. Now look at the knowledge of Allah, Allah knew that this boat is never going to be taken.

00:33:10--> 00:33:58

It was never taken. But Allah knows if he did not have a hole it was going to be taken. So if that boat didn't have a hole and it was going down, it was going to be taken. Isn't that proof of the knowledge that Allah knows what is not going to happen? If it did happen, how it would have happened. Allah knows that, but we don't recognize Allah. So we want things that are detrimental for us. But we don't realize. Now I want to tell you. How do you know how do you know that Allah wants this for you? Or he does not want it for you? It's a very important question. How do you know that? Do you want to know the answer?

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

Number one, you need to recognize a lot you need to worship Allah you need to befriend Allah then when he begins to close the doors for you. It means he does not want it for you. When he opens the doors for you. It means he wants it for you. How do I know this? Where do I get it from? It is called de la artistica. Have you heard of that?

00:34:27--> 00:34:44

In the many of us we did we think that we go to sleep I will dream something no dreaming you're daydreaming? What did you say? Did you say if this is good for me, show me the dream. No, you didn't say that.

00:34:46--> 00:34:58

If this is good for me, show me the color green in my dream online. This is bad for me Show me the color red in my in my dream. like as if it is some traffic lights.

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

Now

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

Forgive us,

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

you say and we want to say in Cana

00:35:08--> 00:35:09

dee dee dee

00:35:11--> 00:35:14

dee, dee dee

00:35:15--> 00:35:34

dee dee. This is good for me my deed my Lumia my acciara if it is really good for me make it easy for me make it happen for me and make it easy for me Then give me Baraka, which means if it is not becoming easy, and the doors are closing one after the other, then you have to look at the other part of

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

it.

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

shop on DVD.

00:35:41--> 00:35:46

What is the rest of the drop? I'm sure some of you know it off by heart, right?

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

for me was

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

what?

00:35:53--> 00:35:53

He

00:35:55--> 00:36:28

loved lava. Do you know what that means? It means if this what I desperately want is bad for him, then keep me away from it. Keep it away from me and make me happy with your decree for me helped me to understand that you don't want it for me. So when the doors begin to close, one after the other after another, and you try whatever you could as a human being, it means a man does not want it for you. But you need to have a good relationship and a friendship with Allah.

00:36:29--> 00:36:46

You need to have a friendship with Allah. Now that you understand when you want something, you want a job you want a spouse, like I say specific many of us we know someone we want that one, you know, but a man doesn't want it. He knows something you don't know.

00:36:48--> 00:37:01

How can you close your eyes and masses? Do you want to eat bananas? There are no bananas. mangoes on us. It's over. We gave you the say no, I'm not eating the mango. Why in the world and die of hunger, die of hunger.

00:37:03--> 00:37:07

It's like a man on the island asking for help. Please listen

00:37:10--> 00:37:18

to the helicopter comes doo doo doo doo doo doo and it lands down there. And they say come we're here to rescue. He says no, no, I'm waiting for Allah to help me.

00:37:21--> 00:37:31

Are you foolish you haven't recognized Allah. Allah uses his creatures in order to get things done at times. So as a means.

00:37:33--> 00:37:41

So when you want something and it doesn't come, don't be depressed. Don't be stressed. Don't lose your sleep. Don't lose your life.

00:37:42--> 00:37:47

You need to understand, I love a lot and I have a good relationship with Allah. Do you know

00:37:49--> 00:37:50

if the answer is yes

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

or no?

00:37:53--> 00:37:57

Do you try your best to stay away from heroin? If the answer is yes.

00:37:59--> 00:38:13

He loves you more than you love yourself. You will make sure that only what is good for you happens for you Even if it is not materialistic in the world. Today when we take you out Let's face facts many of us are looking for things in the world.

00:38:15--> 00:38:29

Give me a good husband Allah give me a rich man. Oh Allah give me a nice bowl of Allah give me good looks. Give me lots of pairs of clothes for Allah let me be someone everyone can look at. And everyone can say wow

00:38:33--> 00:38:45

it's good to one good things but you say Oh Allah helped me that you become a friend of mine over me. I love you over love. I asked you Your love Allahumma in the

00:38:47--> 00:38:48

book.

00:38:54--> 00:39:06

I asked you your love. And I asked you the love of those whom you love. And I asked you to help me to do teach that you love. That is how many of us make

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

a beautiful

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

alone.

00:39:20--> 00:39:41

My beloved tortures my children, my sisters, my mother's recognize your makeup. He is in supreme control. He is in control. He knows all you need to do is build your relationship with Allah. If you want happiness and you did not get up for today, make a difference. Don't ever

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

again after today.

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

Look at what you

00:39:47--> 00:39:51

do you really with the help of Allah. Can I tell you something?

00:39:52--> 00:39:54

Are you ready to hear what Allah

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

Subhana Allah

00:40:01--> 00:40:02

Java says

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

Hola,

00:40:16--> 00:40:18

Beatrice Judy Watson.

00:40:27--> 00:40:27

Watson,

00:40:35--> 00:40:43

it will solve your problems are mind telling the most beloved, who doesn't love the most? Who? What is his name?

00:40:44--> 00:40:46

What is the name?

00:40:53--> 00:40:56

The most? You know what? At night

00:40:58--> 00:41:00

at night and

00:41:03--> 00:41:12

frustrate for Allah. Put your head on the ground for Allah declare his praise

00:41:13--> 00:41:30

in a long way, spending the time with your maker alive telling them to move. The one we all know undisputedly Allah the Most alive telling him

00:41:31--> 00:41:36

what to do do something. What does it mean the lady has to do that. So

00:41:39--> 00:41:48

many of us have made when we have a problem with the other way in the morning we say I couldn't sleep while I was worried about my problem. Did you call

00:41:49--> 00:42:02

so busy? I couldn't even think of that above or below. So you weren't awake, alert kept you awake. You knew you had a problem. You couldn't sleep because you had to get up and cry to ally.

00:42:05--> 00:42:20

I had my first two you completely take control of me Who am I? I have nothing. I'm a creature of yours. I want you to love me and to take care of me. You will know better than I what is better for me? I don't know. So you take control.

00:42:26--> 00:42:31

That is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What did he used to say? Allah.

00:42:38--> 00:42:39

Allah,

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

Allah.

00:42:42--> 00:43:06

Choose me, help me choose what what is best you choose for me and don't leave me to myself. Even for the blink of an eye, you must control my affairs over law I'm your slave. If you want me to die, I die now with a smile. You want me to get sick, I get sick, you want me to get better and better Alhamdulillah

00:43:09--> 00:43:13

thanks Allah and praises him on conditions.

00:43:17--> 00:43:24

And we seek refuge from the condition of those who shall be cast in hellfire.

00:43:25--> 00:43:38

So we met on conditions I told you earlier and it is my motto. say Alhamdulillah when things happened the way you wanted them to happen. And say

00:43:39--> 00:43:49

two times or more, when they do not happen according to the way you wanted them to happen because now they have happened exactly how Allah always wanted them to happen.

00:43:51--> 00:43:52

Life is short.

00:43:54--> 00:44:11

If you surrender to what Allah wants from you in this dunya Allah will give you whatever you want in the hereafter. Did you hear that? You do what Allah what Allah promises he will do what you want.

00:44:12--> 00:44:22

Did you hear that? Whatever you want us to do it for you. Why? Because in the world for a few years, you did what I wanted. You want to hear the verse? Allah subhana wa tada says

00:44:30--> 00:44:32

Josie z.

00:44:34--> 00:44:44

Allah says for the people of Jamaica, for them will be what ever they wish to have. I always say if you

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

if you were to be given what ever you wanted in this world, what was the point of having a place called agenda? What was the place of have what was the point of having a place called gender

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

When Allah already gave you whatever you wanted in this world, Allah so Allah says no, we want to show you what you want

00:45:09--> 00:45:46

and may not give it to you not here. Not everyone can have everything, no, you will have some things other people will have some other things, but we will all be given a fair shake of goodness and a fair share of trials and tribulations be happy. What is the difference between a believer and the one who does not believe a believer is always content, whether they are sick, whether they are bankrupt, whether there are problems, whether they have mentors, whether they are issues, a believer is always happy, but the one who does not believe correctly is always upset, always on edge. always stressed, always angry, sometimes.

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

People say

00:45:51--> 00:45:57

Allah has forgotten me. Maybe Ahmed does not know in my life. I have people say that.

00:45:59--> 00:46:06

I'm living my sister's. The ends that are here that we cannot see are being fed by Allah.

00:46:29--> 00:46:38

There is nothing that moves on Earth, except that Allah has taken it upon himself to provide for that thing.

00:46:40--> 00:47:15

If a man has taken it for himself, to provide for the eggs that you cannot see, do you really think about does not provide for you when you will forget who you are. He doesn't know you are here. He knows you personally better than you know yourself. That is Allah. He made it you. He loves you. Nothing that he does to you. is out of hatred. No. It is us who are guilty of not developing the relationship with online and we still want his goodness and guess what? He still gives us the goodness.

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

You know when you read the

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

salah

00:47:22--> 00:47:30

and in other sutras. It is amazing how Allah says I will have mercy even on the disbelievers. I will give the disbelievers certain things.

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

Allah says, Allah Allah,

00:47:38--> 00:48:24

Allah, Allah says even the disbelievers, I will provide for them, I will give for them, I will give them some things. It's okay for a short period of time they can have how many people who don't believe in Allah, and sometimes they have a nice life. They have everything. You can see the beautiful homes and cars and holidays and whatever else. All that is material things. Allah says, Don't let you don't become deceived by what we have given those who don't believe in us. Don't be deceived. It's not a sign of happiness. When Allah takes away from you, it is not a sign of his anger. And when Allah gives you it is not a sign of his happiness. Not necessarily. It could be but

00:48:24--> 00:48:37

not necessarily. Some people are far from Allah. So out of the love of Allah, He takes away certain things and then they come close to Allah. Have you seen that?

00:48:38--> 00:48:53

People are living their lives, nothing is wrong. So they forgot about salado, by the way, because why the baby is very cozy. The bed is very cozy what I must tell you a story.

00:48:54--> 00:49:02

In your mama, I went to Makkah for a day, Allah gave me an opportunity to just pass by transmite. So I was fortunate.

00:49:04--> 00:49:08

I met I met a wealthy man. I met a wealthy man.

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

from somewhere in Asia, he comes from Asia.

00:49:15--> 00:49:16

And when I went to visit him,

00:49:20--> 00:49:33

he told me he had a beautiful place. Very nice place in Makkah right across the hub. And this is a true story. Perhaps you don't know the man but it's okay. That's not not relevant.

00:49:34--> 00:49:37

He told me why don't you come and stay here? I said, No, you're staying here.

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

I sleep here. In a way he pointed. Imagine he was a wealthy man. He owns the place. He owns that apartment. And it's a five star apartment. But he sleeps on the couch. Well, like I was shocked. I saw Yes, he was indeed on the couch. He said I sleep on the couch.

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

While I was surprised why is he sleeping on the couch with their two beautiful, beautiful luxury five star beds that are dead but he says I sleep on the couch. My sister's my daughter's. He told me the bed is too comfortable at night.

00:50:19--> 00:50:27

The bed is too comfortable. I might miss my Salah Pahlavi that day I cried. That day I cried for life.

00:50:30--> 00:50:36

Imagine a wealthy man who has a five star place and he tells you for the king of the world.

00:50:37--> 00:50:42

Universe, I will sleep on the couch because I don't want to miss my appointment with him.

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

Love

00:50:48--> 00:51:15

May Allah bless him. Bella, grant him his mela give us sincerity. I would never have known if I didn't ask him. But when I asked him, I felt embarrassed to say you people look up to you as a religious speaker. Learn from these people what it is all about to fall in love with Allah, you are so deeply in love with that you don't mind where you sleep that

00:51:26--> 00:51:45

describes the ones who love him. He says them sides first safe their babies at night. They try to allow at night when everyone is sleeping. Those are the lovers of Allah. How much do you love Allah? Are you ready to get up at night to cry to Allah?

00:51:46--> 00:52:28

Then your problems are solved. But we have a big problem. We still didn't think of turning to Allah. Allah makes it a bigger problem. We still didn't turn to Allah. Now it becomes a huge problem that we say Allahu Akbar for the first time in 20 years. Was that not the love of Allah? Allah loves you so much. He took away your things from you to bring you to him what time of love does we need? You know you need him but what did he do to you? He brought you to him. He says my worship I love you come, you didn't come? He says okay, I'll do something to make you come. So he did something. What was that? He took away one of your loved ones. He took away your health. He took away some of your

00:52:28--> 00:52:53

wealth. And then you say something is going wrong here. Why? Allah is showing you my worshiper, life is not all about enjoyment. Life is about building your relation with Allah life is all about displaying yourself and showing yourself as the beautiful women of the northern Nigeria no life is all about developing your relationship with Allah Who gave you the beauty

00:52:57--> 00:53:15

Allah has bestowed upon you more than he has given us in many different ways. And perhaps in certain things he gave up was more than you that is the distribution of a map do not use the gift that Allah gave you to disobey the same Allah Who gave you the gift Are you following what I'm saying?

00:53:16--> 00:53:24

When gave you a gift How can you use the same gift that he gave you to disobey Allah? I asked you another question.

00:53:25--> 00:53:31

Do we need how many each do we as Muslims have in the year? How many?

00:53:32--> 00:53:33

Right?

00:53:35--> 00:53:40

I wonder if you are responding Why can't hear because of the summer. How many leads do we have in the year

00:53:42--> 00:53:45

responding to a TT

00:53:46--> 00:54:04

mela forgive me? I mean, so we have to eat. What is the delivery? Is it not the day of joy and happiness? It is not a day where you celebrate what are you celebrating? You are celebrating the Banda. If you are celebrating having fostered and obey the law,

00:54:05--> 00:54:13

you have engaged in acts of worship through the first 10 days of the first nine so Allah says the 10th one we give you

00:54:14--> 00:54:40

a love heart right? It's the celebration of love giving you a day to view for you to become happy. The same Allah Who gave you a day to be happy you are making him unhappy on the same day what Ramadan is over Today's a day I will go with my boyfriend. I will go with that one. I will commit to this I will do that. I'm going to show the rest of my body and Allah gave me a nice body. Let me show it.

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

You follow what I'm saying? The Blessing Allah gave you is the same blessing you are using the same law you haven't recognized a law yet you don't know a law yet you don't understand the law yet. My my beloved brothers and sisters, this message is for me

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

First, and then for you, mela, strengthen me and then all of us say army.

00:55:07--> 00:55:16

Allah gives you a blessing, Allah giving you money, those who are wealthy, Allah gives you your first million, what do you do use it in Haram.

00:55:17--> 00:55:18

The blessing of Allah.

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

Whatever gave you, you want to use it to sin against the same amount, then you want happiness, you want success, you want contentment, you want to be with

00:55:34--> 00:55:34

your

00:55:37--> 00:55:42

money. Kalona, they know the blessing of Allah.

00:55:44--> 00:55:53

But Allah gave you thank him for it, don't use it to this omega, use it to obey Him, when you energy use the energy to obey

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

this, yes, we are human, we might make an error, we might fall into sin here and then Allah says, quickly turn back to me. quickly turn back to me, come back. Don't be depressed. If you have done something wrong, or your human nature makes you do something wrong. Quickly come back to Allah. That's what Allah loves.

00:56:19--> 00:56:31

Sam also made a mistake. However, I also made a mistake. But the difference was, as soon as they made the mistake, they quickly turn back to Allah Karna.

00:56:44--> 00:56:48

Me, the two of them said, Oh,

00:56:49--> 00:57:05

we have wronged ourselves. We have gone against our own selves by wronging ourselves. And if you don't have mercy on us, and if you don't forgive us, we will be the losers. Oh Allah forgive us. Allah says we forgive. They are forgiven.

00:57:08--> 00:57:12

My beloved sisters, my dearest mothers,

00:57:13--> 00:57:15

I have bad news for you. Do you want to hear it?

00:57:18--> 00:57:21

My time is up. I've spoken for one hour.

00:57:22--> 00:57:24

Do you believe I spoke for one hour?

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

connected continue?

00:57:28--> 00:57:35

Is the first time you're talking to me. Mashallah, when I asked you other questions, if you answer Yeah, by the way, by the way,

00:57:42--> 00:57:53

I do not claim to be better than you. In fact, I may be worse than you. I do not claim that the message I have delivered is for you. But rather it is for me. May Allah strengthen me

00:57:54--> 00:58:36

as goodness, Allah protect me and all of us. But this message is divine, it belongs to humanity at large. It belongs to everyone. Nothing makes me better than you. When you look at me Don't get too excited because if I falter, you will want to turn away from the team if you pick the team on who I was, rather than on what the team was on who is when you develop your relationship with Allah and His messenger and you realize that everyone besides that can falter and make mistakes, Allah will strengthen you. But when you paint your relationship on another human being, you will be let down in a very big way.

00:58:37--> 00:58:39

It's my duty to let you know,

00:58:40--> 00:58:46

you might look up to me may have Hannah Montana make us where we have that even in a small way.

00:58:49--> 00:58:53

So my dear sisters, my beloved children, my dearest mothers,

00:58:57--> 00:59:19

by asking Allah to bless you to grant you goodness and ease today, I have spoken about a lot. And I have told you about the blessings of Allah. And I've told you you cannot achieve anything unless you develop your relationship with Allah, there is no chance What do you want? What do you want? Whatever you want, Allah has it. He has it

00:59:21--> 00:59:23

is one example.

00:59:24--> 00:59:27

If you know powerful person, and you're very close to them,

00:59:28--> 00:59:48

anything you want, they will do for you. But when you're not close to them, is there a guarantee they will do it for you? When you're so close to a very powerful person, you can tell them hey, I have a small problem. What is your problem? Let me see what to do. You say I did this. Even if it is big people won't believe how was this done? I am close to this person.

00:59:50--> 00:59:52

You know what Allah tells you

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

that you

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

get acquainted with Allah during your days of ease. When you still don't have problems get close to Allah, why the day that your problems come alone, get acquainted with you.

01:00:15--> 01:00:35

Allah will come to your help. Another Hadith where the Prophet peace be upon in quotes among he says, Who ever comes to me and spend, I will come to him a whole foot or a yard, and whoever comes to me walking, I will come to him,

01:00:36--> 01:00:38

rushing running,

01:00:39--> 01:00:40

who is telling you this?

01:00:45--> 01:00:54

If you have needs, I want to repeat one thing, and then I will close. If you have needs and we all do have needs

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

when the third of the night remains, that is a time of Soho you know what is

01:01:03--> 01:01:15

when a third of the night remains, Allah descends to the lowest heavens in a way that is befitting to his grand deal. And you know what? He says?

01:01:16--> 01:01:35

Is there anyone seeking forgiveness that I can forgive them? Is there anyone turning to me so that I can accept them? Is there anyone asking me anything so that I can give them that's what Allah does every single night? every single night.

01:01:38--> 01:01:38

In a

01:01:44--> 01:01:45

fire

01:01:53--> 01:01:54

anxious

01:01:56--> 01:02:04

when you get up at that time of the morning, you arrive at a new level of love between you and the law.

01:02:06--> 01:02:12

If the one you will not close you at one in the morning, what will you do? Why because you love the person.

01:02:13--> 01:02:17

This is not the person this is the one who gave you your face.

01:02:22--> 01:02:24

Me,

01:02:26--> 01:02:34

Masha Allah, Allah is Allah who created you

01:02:35--> 01:03:05

in fashion, he designed to strengthen you get your posture, your identity, absolutely different from everyone from those who came from the time of Adam, right up to the one who will come right at the end. You have a unique identity, your thumbprint, your eyes, your hair, everything is completely different. So Ha, ha, Oh,

01:03:06--> 01:03:07

man.

01:03:11--> 01:03:37

This is the creation of Allah show me what besides Allah have created, some kind of Allah has given you your identity, your face your fashion, electrons, when you turn to Him, you're going to return to immediately turn to Allah before you return to Allah. Allah sallallahu wasallam Allah Allah

01:03:39--> 01:03:39

Allah
