We are this wrong my another project probably present to you.

00:00:07--> 00:00:21

With three international speaker is mailman from Zimbabwe but do it respectfully you can stand up and ask and demand for what is yours but do it respectfully Dr. Mohamed Salah from Egypt, most of all,

00:00:23--> 00:00:23

except

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

Allah Dena Amman

00:00:27--> 00:00:33

where I'm in Saudi Hardy, but I've also been happy with the loss of the sun and oil

00:00:35--> 00:01:03

to unwanted behavior to someone who's asking for a haram he didn't shout at him telling him Don't you know who am I don't you know that is haram Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi wa sallahu wa salam ala Mallanna BIA by the who are early he was a big man. My brothers, my sisters in this beautiful city of Jakarta. I am really excited to be here with you this afternoon Alhamdulillah.

00:01:05--> 00:01:28

My brothers and sisters, it's important for us to know that the connection we have with one another would never have been there. If we were not connected with Allah. You know me only because we both know Allah, there is no other reason why we know each other do you agree?

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

say Alhamdulillah

00:01:32--> 00:02:24

because to know one another for the sake of Allah and to love each other for the sake of Allah, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him clearly says those people will get a special place on the Day of Judgment. radula Anita have buff Allah He is Dhamma Ma Li WaterFire raka Alayhi to people who love each other for the sake of Allah, they came together for Allah they departed for Allah, those they deserve the shade on the day of judgment from Allah subhanho wa taala. So we think Allah I always sit and think about the gifts of Allah and the favors upon us. What is the biggest gift you have? Is it not Iman, the fact that I worship the one who made me alone, only he who made me I believe in you

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

believe the only one worthy of worship is the one who made me.

00:02:31--> 00:02:56

The fact that I arrived at that conclusion by the blessing of Allah and I was guided to it is the biggest favor you have. So never read the acts of worship to anyone besides Allah because the shahada that you and I say a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow under Mohammad Rasool Allah, it would mean I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides

00:02:57--> 00:03:32

Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad peace be upon him his His messenger and His Prophet SubhanAllah. So every day so many times a day, if you pray five times a day, only the FARA minimum 17 times you read surah Al Fatiha Surah Al Fatiha the opening Surah of the Quran in surah Mustafi stepping guide us to the straight path you are praying you are asking that dua it's a supplication. It is the most repeated supplication ever.

00:03:34--> 00:04:23

Why? Because billions of people repeat it 17 times minimum every day. And we read Surah Fatiha more than that. Right. So the most repeated prayer in existence or ever is guide us to the straight path. It means guidance is the most important thing now. When we are connected to Allah, which begin to fulfill the rights of ALLAH, so I will worship Allah I will adopt what he says I will try to understand what is halal what is haram what he wants, what he does not want, I will adopt it I'm going to be trying my best knowing I'm going to go back to Allah when someone passes away when something disastrous happens we say in Allah he were in LA he Raji own, we belong to Allah and we

00:04:23--> 00:05:00

are going to go back to him that statement should make it easy for us to overcome the loss by reminding ourselves that the loss is temporary, but Allah is eternal. And Allah we are going to all meet again when we go back to him. Today for example, I want to meet you I want to meet every one of you including all the people I cannot do it because I'm a human and the time is limited. But I know if Allah takes us to Jana, we can do it. If Allah takes us to Jana, we can do it because time is unlimited time will be no more no more time. So that is

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

As a favor of Allah, we say in Allah he were in LA Rajon to remind us that this world is temporary we belong to Allah we're going to go back to him. And as we connect more and more with Allah Almighty we realized something. When you make a mistake you turn to Allah immediately Oh ALLAH forgive me I'm wrong. I know what you said is right and wrong if I asked you here, I think the majority of us must be Muslim and welcome to those who are who may not be Muslim who are in our midst here you are more than welcome. I tell you something, when we as Muslims are told, Do you know what is halal and haram? 90% of it or more we already know. You agree. If I tell you what is your

00:05:44--> 00:06:07

duty as a Muslim 90% of the time we would know 90% of the duties some deeper details we might need to find out a bit from the those who are in need of knowledge but the basics you know and I know Halal haram if I tell you alcohol Halal haram haram or Halal haram water Halal haram Thank you. You see we know

00:06:09--> 00:06:17

May Allah subhana Gangaram Halal haram ah mashallah mashallah

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

mashallah I see

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

Indonesia there's a problem.

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

They say big masala to masala here be masala machete big masala

00:06:31--> 00:06:55

and second masala Gudang garam masala May Allah bless you guys but Allah He I tell you something very interesting. When I was young, I was living in Madina Munawwara I used to help volunteer to the Hajj. I mentioned this yesterday in my talk, help the hijab and help the people and so on. And that time now it's a bit better I think, but that time 9092 9394 and so on.

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

We used to be

00:06:59--> 00:07:12

immediately immediately we used to know where the Indonesians are, even if my eyes are closed, I'm walking the building I see here there is Indonesians, they say how do you know I say because I can smell good Angara

00:07:15--> 00:07:27

It's the secret special it's special from this country right? Yes Masha Allah may Allah bless May Allah forgive inshallah it's a bad habit. We should quit it no matter how, how gum the Gudang might be.

00:07:33--> 00:08:17

But it's a bad habit. In the same way any bad habits we quit them for the sake of Allah. If you can quit one for Allah. Allah will give you Jana considerados. If you can quit something for Allah, Allah will grant you Jana. Look, I tell you something, Allah Almighty has granted Jannah to those who have quenched the thirst of a dog for the sake of Allah. Allah gave them Jana when they felt compassion when they felt their hearts was soft. What is my connection with a dog? Let me tell you what is my connection with a dog number one can we eat dog halal or haram? Haram right you cannot eat but my connection with the dog is the one who made me he also made the dog Subhanallah you see

00:08:17--> 00:08:48

so I need to be kind pig for example we don't eat but I cannot harm the pig. Because pig has life. Some people Muslims they think because it's a pig I can throw stones I can do anything I can hurt it that's a pig no way Allah will punish you. If you hurt anything that has a soul unnecessarily meat when I say unnecessarily I mean if you want to consume something that is halal, you need to follow a certain method of making it halal.

00:08:50--> 00:09:21

But to harm any animals or birds or even the fish or the oceans or the the trees or the ecosystem and to create pollution unnecessarily and so on. Allah will hold you accountable. This earth is not only yours, it belongs to me and you in the same way. All of us were born here on earth. You are entitled to live just like I am you are the same as me. What makes you close to Allah is something called Taqwa. Yeah. Are you sure in follow up on

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

the Korean

00:09:26--> 00:09:31

War Jana come shuba Oh Baba elearning

00:09:33--> 00:09:44

in Rama coumarin de la here at Konkan Surah Surah. Allah says, Oh man, we have created you from a single male and female

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

and from them we have caused you too obviously become multiplied in tribes and communities and nations and peoples etc. etc. Allah says the most honored from amongst you the most

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

was honorable, the closest to Allah, the One who has Taqwa is conscious of Allah, He will be the most honorable you have a status. And when you are close to Allah, you do not think that I am better than everyone else because that's from the devil. What was shaytans first deviation? You know what it was

00:10:21--> 00:10:31

when he saw Adam, and Allah created Adam and shape and so Adam, he wanted to find an excuse not to obey Allah's instruction. He said, an alpha you

00:10:32--> 00:10:43

mean Oh, I am better than him. Why should I prostrate here I am better than him. Up to today that better than him is a problem with all of us.

00:10:45--> 00:11:09

It's a problem with all of us when you think I'm better. That is the very moment shaytan is holding you and massage, massage nicely. You are better you're a bit. You are the king. You are smart. Everyone has nothing right? May Allah forgive us are all the biller, his summit in Berlin, him in a shape on the regime. May Allah Almighty grant us refuge in him against shape on the accursed me.

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

So as you grow in your connection with Allah, you need to do what Allah wants. One of the things that Allah wants is that you understand who he is, Who is Allah, He is the maker, the creator, the Nourisher, that cherish the sustainer, the provider, the protector, the cure, the one in whose hands lies, absolute control of every aspect of existence, that is Allah, who Allah, who Allah

00:11:39--> 00:12:00

and He is not the creator of me, only everything I will ever see in my life, Allah created it, even the things I may not have seen if they exist, Allah created it. So who am I, I am one small human being that most of the world does not even know.

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

But I can be very close to Allah, if I understand whatever Allah made, if I love Allah so much. If I love Allah so much.

00:12:14--> 00:12:23

Anything that he created, I need to understand what he wants me to do with that thing, or how he wants me to interact with that thing.

00:12:26--> 00:12:39

So let's start off with human beings. Okay, human beings. Human beings are just like me same species. One day, there was a man he was sitting with me on an aircraft. He told me, do you believe in evolution?

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

I told him What's that?

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

Trust me, even he did not know.

00:12:46--> 00:12:49

He didn't know. He told me. We are from apes.

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

I said, I'm from Adam. Maybe you're from the ape?

00:12:57--> 00:13:01

I am from Adam. Maybe you're from the ape? SubhanAllah.

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

So he said, No, no, no, we are from apes.

00:13:06--> 00:13:29

I said, so why are they still apes on Earth? It's a question. And why the apes on Earth are not changing to men, by now should be no more apes. Anyway, that discussion ended in a nice way in a very beautiful way. And what we agreed is we have to also respect those apes, not because they are his grandfather's but

00:13:30--> 00:13:39

but because it's a creation of Allah, human beings, we are part of one family. Human beings are part of one family, no matter what.

00:13:41--> 00:14:20

There are so many connections between you and me, right? The first original connection is the fact that you are the children of Adam. Now this would include Muslim, non Muslim, no matter where you are, no matter how you think, how close or far you are from Allah, the sinful, the not so sinful, those who are very sinful, oh, all of those, no matter who you are, I have to acknowledge we are from Adam and we are created by Allah from the dust the soil and so on, and Hawa is our mother and so on, I have to agree. So there is a connection, if there is a connection, even if I do not like what you are doing, or even if I disagree with you, I need to offer you minimum respect. Because if

00:14:20--> 00:14:36

I'm a Muslim, for example, I have discovered Allah and I worship my maker alone. I need to love that goodness for everyone else, and I will not be able to communicate that goodness with other people if I don't have a connection or any respect between me and them.

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

How can I convey the message I have, if I have no respect for anyone know my brother. carry yourself with respect continue? If you disagree, you disagree. I can disagree with you very strongly. Like this brother who was telling me about apes. I disagree very strongly, but we made a joke about it. We laughed in

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

He started to laugh and so on. I told him I see this and it went on quite a bit. But end of the day I managed to get my word in, you understand what I'm saying? Why because we respect I didn't say oh, you know, no swearing, no abuse no matter who they are. A believer does not say swear words with his or her mouth. A believer does not utter falsehoods. does not hurt people. Intentionally you are swearing abusing, you are not allowed to do it. Even with those who are far away Allah says while at the Super Bowl letting their own I mean, dude, he via some Bula other one we

00:15:42--> 00:16:01

don't mock at or joke about or abuse those who are worshipping deities and gods besides Allah because then they will also have a reaction and they will start to abuse and mock and joke about Allah without knowledge. Subhanallah Hera, Bill Allah Minh,

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

who caused it, the one who started it.

00:16:07--> 00:16:45

If someone like there is another Hadith, that you should not swear your parents so someone said how would we swear our parents he said, You know what? You see someone you swear his parents and then he swears your parents what happened? You are the one who started. If you say this, if you tell someone for example, you are stupid, they will tell you, you are stupid. Agree. That's how it works. So Allah says, don't even do that. You are not allowed to abuse people. You are a believer, you have a connection with everyone here, respect them. They are the creatures of Allah, Allah made them and Allah allowed them to meet you in your life so that he is testing you, whoever you meet, whoever you

00:16:45--> 00:17:04

interact with whoever you heard, wherever you saw, it was chosen perfectly and carefully by Allah for your test on Earth. It's not just a coincidence for you. Maybe coincidence for me, maybe coincidence, we are human for Allah, nothing is coincidence. You are sitting in front of me, designed by Allah a long time back.

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

A long time back, before you knew me and before I knew you,

00:17:10--> 00:17:48

Allah knew one day you are going to sit here what's my duty? I love you, I respect you. I honor you. I will give you the best of what I can for the sake of Allah. That's it. It's my test. When I go back to meet with Allah. Did you meet them? Yes, we did what to happen. We tried to do good things. We remind each other about you. What will Allah say? I hope he will say for you guys, all of you just go to gym. I mean, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. I mean, that's what we want. So my brothers and sisters, as we are connecting with people, we begin to connect more and more with Allah. When you know Allah and you love Allah. Anything that Allah loves is beloved to you. Anything that Allah

00:17:48--> 00:17:57

made, you will be kind and respectful, even if you disagree. Why do I say disagree? Sometimes we hate certain things.

00:17:59--> 00:18:34

We hate what do we hate? We hate sins we hate. Go for those whom perhaps blaspheme against Allah and His messenger. We hate the deed. As for the person, there are stages, in the early stage, we would still try with the person, we still continue, you made a mistake, you made a sin. Look, if you had to hate everyone who sinned, you would have to hate yourself. You follow what I'm saying? If you had to hate every one who sinned, you have to start off by hating yourself, look in the mirror and say I hate you why you committed a sin.

00:18:36--> 00:19:15

That itself shows you that initial teaching of Islam is that you hate the sin. As for the sinner, they fall into many categories. The initial category, you cannot just hate the sinner in the initial category, you correct them, you guide them, they will come and so on. Sometimes they are sinful and you know they are passive sinners. The only time that changes is when they become promoters of the sin. They are harming you, they are oppressing you. They want to remove you from the goodness you have and take you to the sin they are committing then you say you know what? I hate this guy Subhanallah it's a bit heavy, it's a bit strong. But that is the final out utmost level. I'm going

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

to stay away but I still pray for them.

00:19:18--> 00:19:42

And I will still continue to have hope for them. But there comes a level where say for example, a man may Allah forgive us. I'm going to give you real example a man who killed your child or who killed a family member of yours. You can't say I love you my brother but I hate what you did. Oh come on. You're a human you also have feelings. You love me okay, let me kill someone else you might love me more.

00:19:44--> 00:19:52

No chance. You have the right to say I hate this man. He killed my child. Don't you have a right to say that? You have a right.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

So if someone is killing your deen completely you have the same right but go easy go easy why?

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

Allah says,

00:20:02--> 00:20:39

As Allahu ie gyla in a coma in a Lavina. I mean, I'm done, what Allah Who kadhi Allah is all able and capable to create love between you and those whom you have been fighting those whom you dislike those whom you hate. Allah can create love between you and them. How many times you have people who hate each other for some reason, their children or their grandchildren begin to marry intermarry and then what happens? You forget about everything. May Allah Almighty help us.

00:20:40--> 00:21:13

So the point being raised is there is a connection between all human beings then there is another connection if the person happens to be in the same circle as you and how many circles are there there are so many circles. Sometimes they are in the same family as you. So disbelievers, but they are in your family. Allah says there is a double connection. Why one is that of human being to they are related to you? Does it mean I'm a Muslim? They are not Muslim, I need to just say stuff every time I see them. No.

00:21:16--> 00:21:22

If that was the case, we would become so pious because there are so many non Muslims on Earth, we would be saying stuff for Allah for all our lives.

00:21:24--> 00:21:39

But in reality, your family if there is someone in your family who's not a Muslim, your duty is to treat them with utmost respect. Your duty is to behave in a way that they can feel that what you are upon is actually the truth.

00:21:40--> 00:22:16

Yes, it happened so many times. People interact with Muslims here in the Java, so many years and centuries ago, they say there were some business people who came with beautiful interactions and honest upright business dealings. Am I right? Yes. What happened? People started to turn hey, these guys, I want to be with them. I want to be from you. I love it. This is amazing. You guys are straightforward. You guys don't drink you don't do any bad. You don't do this. You don't do that. You are kind you are generous. You help everyone and so on. Subhanallah they turned to Allah because of you and your actions. So if there is someone in your family who is not a Muslim, your actions

00:22:16--> 00:22:34

need to be even more exemplary. Your parents if they're not Muslim, they are your parents. No matter what you will be kind to them, you will honor them. That's how you connect with Allah because you connect with human beings you connect by serving those around you you serve them. Don't be selfish. Shaytan is selfish.

00:22:35--> 00:22:42

Subhanallah when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation, the first words what was the first word

00:22:43--> 00:22:48

Ikara re he said, ma Anna Bukhari I'm not a reader.

00:22:49--> 00:22:58

Anyway, after that episode after the initial interaction with Jabril the angel he came down to go to see who

00:22:59--> 00:23:03

who did he want to meet first Come on say the name don't be shy bola bola?

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

Yes, what was her name?

00:23:09--> 00:23:42

Deja Khadija been to Hawaii tell him his wife. He came down some Maloney give me a nice tight hug right. Cover me come to me and develop me the Maloney. And what did she what happened? What happened? He explained what happened? She said Allah Allah Hina you Zeke Allah Who a burden there is no chance I swear by Allah there is no chance that Allah will let you down you know why you are a good man Subhanallah You're a good man. Why am I saying this? You and I need to be good men. One is when we go to wives they hug me she say what for?

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

Right?

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

Cover me what for? I have a problem. You are my biggest problem.

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

That's what happens. It's true.

00:23:54--> 00:24:30

Because the way we read our lives is far from the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Here is the greatest of all the one we follow Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he comes down and says the minute he when he explains what happened, she said, Allah Allah He now you can seek Allahu Akbar the no way Allah will never let you down you are a man you honor the guests you fulfill your relations you look after the neighbors you are upright you and she rattled out so many good qualities of the man how many good qualities do you and I have? Can't we do better inshallah weekend?

00:24:32--> 00:24:51

I promise Allah today that I will do better than where I was yesterday. Let's make the promise. Do you promise Allah you will become a better person than what you were yesterday. And if you continue promising when you by the time you get to the day when you are going to die, you will be the best version of yourself.

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

How many of us we never used to pray today. Allah allowed us to pray. Do you know when you are doing to have done it?

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

By Invite Only

00:25:02--> 00:25:03

you know that

00:25:04--> 00:25:09

you know what is invite only if you do tahajjud before Fajr it's only by invites.

00:25:10--> 00:25:21

Allah invites you to do tahajjud otherwise you're sleeping. Allahu Akbar. So when you do tahajjud first thing thank Allah Oh Allah you invited me here today, Lucha, Lucha aka

00:25:23--> 00:25:39

many of us forget about the hat dude even the Fajr is not even there who invited you shake ban me I'm sleep Mossad there is still five snooze snooze. Okay fellas, okay, and then they say okay 30 minutes snooze again snooze again.

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

Am I right or wrong? I'm a human I also snooze snooze I don't know.

00:25:47--> 00:26:17

So understand the favor of Allah get up be strong Allahu Akbar. It might be my last day. The hadith says Sully, Salah tiempo de data and when you fulfill your prayer, fulfill it as though it's the last prayer and then it's gone. Maybe I might not get to pray after this. And do that every day for every prayer one day, it will be your last prayer. It will. May Allah strengthen us my brothers and sisters, if you have bad habits, today is the day you're going to throw it out by the will of Allah.

00:26:18--> 00:26:57

If Allah does not soften your heart on a day like this way so many 1000 have gathered here for example, in order to remember ALLAH, if Allah did not soften you on a day like this, when do you want to be suffering? What are you waiting for? Is there something you are waiting? Some people they turn to Allah after they have a big loss? You can wait for the loss. Sometimes it might not come? Sometime people are diagnosed with the disease may Allah give you Shiva if Allah has tested you with the sickness, today we are asking Allah Allah Who mushy O Allah Who mushfiqur Oh Allah grant her or him pure. May Allah grant yo Kyo don't wait for calamity to strike before you turn to Allah because

00:26:57--> 00:27:20

at that time, shame on might come to you and you might turn away from Allah. There are some people there is a guy who sent me an email the other day saying I lost my job. Two years I'm making dua Allah is rejecting. Now I'm fed up of praying. Hi, how can you say that? How can you say Allah is rejecting Allah knows he wants to squeeze you to the end. Don't give up prayer use of Alayhis Salam,

00:27:21--> 00:27:46

the Father, He prayed for how long he was an abbey of Allah prophet of Allah Jacobo Jacob May peace be upon him. He kept praying for Allah for years and years and years. And what did he say? I'm not going to stop because Allah mamina Allah He may Allah Allah Moon, I know from Allah, something which you don't know, Allah will give. And even if Allah does not give in this world, he will reward me because I prayed. And because I continue to ask that is Allah.

00:27:47--> 00:28:29

So my brothers and sisters, today is the day we need to be kind to one another. We need to help one another. We need to reach out to one another. We need to change the way we treat people. Don't be rough. Watch your tongue don't hurt people's feelings. When you are rough with your tongue, you pay a price. When you are hurtful to someone you pay the price. When you have done something wrong to someone else. That is a heavy price you're going to pay it's worse than when you have committed the sin between you and Allah because you and Allah He can forgive you without interference of anyone else. He is a for Rahim Rahman. We're doing the most kind, the Most Merciful, the Most Generous, the

00:28:29--> 00:28:35

Most Compassionate, the most forgiving and so on. Those qualities belong to Allah, not to other human beings.

00:28:37--> 00:28:41

So my brothers and sisters, this is the day I want to tell you.

00:28:43--> 00:28:44

serving humanity

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

is part of serving Allah.

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

If you understand Allah, like I've said earlier

00:28:54--> 00:28:59

because you respect every creature of his you begin to serve them.

00:29:02--> 00:29:06

I was in Makkah not long ago, and I was leaving

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

and I needed to take some zamzam

00:29:11--> 00:29:12

you know what is some some isn't it

00:29:15--> 00:29:18

zum zum is also the name of a girl.

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

By the way, there was someone I said What is your name? She says sister zamzam.

00:29:24--> 00:29:26

Subhanallah I was surprised

00:29:27--> 00:29:28

you drink water

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

I was waiting to hear no I only drink some some.

00:29:35--> 00:30:00

Anyway, there's some some I'm talking about is the water from the well of Ibrahim alayhis salam and so on. Hotjar Allah has Salam well with the story of Ismail and so on that zum zum so we wanted to bring a bit now you know sometimes you are coming back from Makkah your luggage and everything. The brother at the counter he told me what you want. I said there's some some he said come bring it let it go. I said oh Mashallah. I was almost wanting to cry because for me, you know, it's a bit

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

thing when I told him brother I want to share with you one Hadith. Now I was emotional I was what motional rather I want to share with you one Hadith and from my heart something came to me. He said, What is it? I say I stand in front of him. I stood in front of him and I told him I said my brother.

00:30:18--> 00:30:46

In the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that there was a man who quench the thirst of a dog by going down a well and picking dirty water from that well in his own shoe, and getting up to quench a dog some dirty water from the well and Allah gave him forgiveness. Because of that. And Jana, I swear by Allah if you quench a human beings thirst with zum zum, what do you think you're going to get?

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

He also began to cry.

00:30:50--> 00:30:57

But the point is correct. To quench the thirst of a dog with dirty water, was already the highest reward.

00:30:59--> 00:31:12

What about to quench the thirst of a human being with the purest water on Earth? I don't know what you're going to get. But my question is, what do you think you're going to get? It has to be more than the other one. Agreed.

00:31:14--> 00:31:23

So that is why I say serve human beings don't worry, you will. You know when we go out to greet someone, a Salam, O Allah, O Allah writes it down.

00:31:25--> 00:31:42

It's written What did you say Peace be on you? What is that? It's a dua for you supplication. I pray that you and your whole life is peaceful the way you should say what an eco salaam should be there are that do I really need it? At the moment? I have no peace. So many people say I have no peace. I say just salaam everyone.

00:31:43--> 00:32:03

Say how because you say Salam aleikum? Wa alaykum wa sallam if you are genuine and sincere, Allah will give you the piece. That is why the best thing Allah do LUCAM Allah Amarin either fall to muda hubbub tomb of Shu Salama by Nico the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon himself Should I not show you something? If you were to do it, then peace will be spreading amongst you.

00:32:05--> 00:32:07

And love will spread amongst you love

00:32:08--> 00:32:11

the HA Baba to love amongst one another.

00:32:12--> 00:32:41

What is it? He says? Spread the salam amongst you genuinely not fake you know what's a fake salaam someone new comes in front of you you are jealous of them. You hate them you dislike them and you come in and you are shy somehow like but in your heart there is a dagger you want to stand behind them. You know? That is hypocrite you will not go anywhere. That is hypocrisy in the fog. Don't do that. If you are showing your teeth make sure there are two teeth.

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

Not just dentures.

00:32:46--> 00:33:03

No, no, even if you have dentures you can show them no problem for as long as a genuine smile. My brother salaam aleikum, how are you? How is everything okay, and don't get too involved in personal questions because people do not like personal question. I say some Aleykum How are you brother? I'm fine. How much do you weigh? Me weigh?

00:33:05--> 00:33:09

What's he going to do with you? Subhanallah Okay, what's your salary? Where do you work?

00:33:11--> 00:33:19

Oh, you work in that store? At that small perfume bottle? How much is it? My brand I don't even say salam ala if you leave me alone and go that's it.

00:33:21--> 00:34:01

That's why I say we are Muslims. We are beautiful people you need to know where to stop and what to do. Don't expect extra favors from people expect a favor from Allah. Allah will favor you make people's lives simple and easy. And Allah will grant you and bless you. Salaam aleikum, masha Allah what other duties you have, that you can connect to Allah through serving humanity when someone is sick and Ill pray for them, visit them go to see them if you can, or at least send them a message. I am praying for you may Allah give you Shiva and so on. Again, when people are sick and ill depending on how close they are to you, number one, number two is how sick they are. Because sometimes you say

00:34:01--> 00:34:14

you go to the sick person's house KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK but he wants to sleep No, I am here's your rattle marine AI that will marine I need to visit the sick. Now the man is sleeping no wake him up my knee. I'm coming to visit sunnah. What is the Sunnah?

00:34:15--> 00:34:22

When you go in and you sit you say that bring the tea bring this this My brother did you go for so now you went to have a mini breakfast day?

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

It's amazing. When people sit for two three hours my man from long outside they're saying when is he going? When is he going and you don't even know or you know but you don't mind. Stanford Law. So that's why you need to know some people. One message is enough. It's called a year that will marry no problem. Sometimes one phone call is enough. Sometimes you send a message to someone else we are praying for you is enough. Sometimes you can visit quickly and you can go if you are very close to the person you can go sometimes they want you please come to see come sit down with me I need to talk go Alhamdulillah so for everything you need to know how much

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

where, when and how,

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

what else, if someone passes away, you make the janazah on them. If someone passes away, you try to follow the janazah to the grave and you help to bury them. The women might not be able to go all the way because the men are the ones who actually carry the janazah and into the grave and so on. But you pray for them, and you make dua for them and you can visit those whom they have left behind in terms of family and friends, and you can give them some condolences and sympathies and dua that is part of your duty as a Muslim. To be sad at the sadness of other people is your duty as a Muslim to connect with humanity in order to connect with Allah, to be happy at the happiness of someone else

00:35:42--> 00:35:56

is also part of your duty, to connect with humanity in order to be able to connect with Allah, if you are sad, when someone is happy, there is something wrong with you. And if you are happy when someone is sad, there is something wrong with you. Subhanallah

00:35:59--> 00:36:07

I remember some time back there was a man he was he was troublesome in the sense that he has done a lot of hurtful things to a lot of people, but he passed away.

00:36:08--> 00:36:11

And when he passed away the news spread.

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

So I'm on one Whatsapp group.

00:36:14--> 00:36:19

And the news spread so and so passed away four or five people they said Alhamdulillah

00:36:21--> 00:36:26

and I said Imagine if I die? Do I want people to say Alhamdulillah?

00:36:27--> 00:36:50

I corrected them I said no brothers don't say no matter what this is the point where you say in Allah in LA Raja Allah says to us, through the blessed lips of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam when someone has passed away say good things about him it's over. The game is over. You know, if they lost seven zero, they lost tell us eight once and leaving. So you know, those of you who are those of you who are in football, I know what you're thinking.

00:36:52--> 00:36:57

I didn't realize even Indonesia is interested in actually the whole world is interested in football, right?

00:36:59--> 00:37:08

So you mentioned it once and it's over. You don't have to keep after the game is over your whole life you mentioned 7070 You know, you don't have to say that my Allah grant us is.

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

My brothers and sisters, the amazing thing is Allah loves those who serve and who help and who love one another for his sake and his pleasure.

00:37:20--> 00:37:28

You know, I tell you something very powerful, very powerful. When you do good to other people, why are you doing the good? Ask yourself?

00:37:29--> 00:38:00

That's a very powerful question. If I'm coming to you, I see you and I'm very kind to you and very, very, you know, helpful and so on. Why am I doing it? Ask yourself are you swear by Allah if you are doing it for the sake of Allah, you will not mind whether they are good to you in return or not, because you are not doing good to them because you think they deserve the goodness but rather, you are doing good to them because you know that Allah loves those who do good. No matter who they're doing it to.

00:38:01--> 00:38:15

I am coming to you not because I even know you I don't even know you. In that sense. I am unkind to you because I know Allah loves those who are kind I am, I am good to you. Because I know Allah loves those who are good. I'm not good to you because I think you deserve good.

00:38:17--> 00:38:43

If I am good to you, because of your deserving we would never be good to one another because shaytan will always come to us and make us think Why are you good to this person. They don't deserve to be good. That's why the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him did good to those who did bad to him, he was still good to them. That's on another level altogether. But he taught that to us. Sometimes we are so weak we cannot imagine someone does bad to you. How are you going to do good to them?

00:38:44--> 00:38:48

It's not easy. But if you're a believer you can

00:38:49--> 00:38:58

May Allah Almighty strengthen us so my brothers and sisters we are to fulfill the rights of one another and beyond. We can do extra goodness.

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

You see if you look at the surah in the Quran, which is very powerful. One of my favorite sources.

00:39:08--> 00:39:32

Well lo ha Well Layli either sagia Ma the aka broke our Mac Allah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Wa la sierra Tucson Ural Kameena Hola. Hola. Someone failure I think Rob Booker veteran ball amazing. I want you to go back this evening and read the meaning of the surah.

00:39:33--> 00:39:53

I want you to go back and read the meaning of the surah and the next one. So that the Shara This is Doha and the next one is Shara. Please go back today on your phone you can find on Google or wherever you if you have an app or whatever you will find it read the meaning of the surah because Allah is explaining and telling us that

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

He will definitely give his telling Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:40:00--> 00:40:21

Selam your hereafter is going to be better than this life. And don't think that Allah forsakes you just because the goodness you wanted did not come to you, very interesting. Do not think that Allah has abandoned you because the goodness you were expecting did not come to you don't think Allah left you he did not leave you and He will not leave.

00:40:22--> 00:40:25

You come to Allah, Allah will come to you even more.

00:40:27--> 00:40:30

You walk to Allah, Allah rushes to you.

00:40:31--> 00:40:35

In that surah Allah Almighty says towards the end

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

Well, I'm Miss

00:40:41--> 00:40:46

Isla Furla done Hello. I'm sure you know the verse most of us know it right.

00:40:47--> 00:40:48

Do we know it?

00:40:50--> 00:41:01

Come on, come on. Come on. I used to see one program long back I don't know if it still exists. There was a friend of mine who was managing this. It was called cinta Quran.

00:41:02--> 00:41:16

And first time I heard the meaning of the word cinta it means nah, I said cinta Allah, Cinta Rasul cinta Quran Muslim. I'm a Muslim, right? May Allah grant us goodness.

00:41:17--> 00:41:28

What a messiah Illa Fela 10 Hara as for the one who is asking who is the one asking the beggar? Allah is Allah is guiding you

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

about the beggar who you come across.

00:41:34--> 00:42:12

Allah says when you come across a beggar a messiah in the beggar the one who comes to you and he asks, Now Allah is telling you how to treat him how to treat the beggar. What did Allah say look at how powerful it is. Allah knows every one of us is on a different level right number one, number two, Allah knows that all the beggars are not the same. Some of them are legit some of them are a scam. We agree some of them you look at them and say there is a big sort of you know a network of these people they are more rich than you at night they are driving Bugatti and in the morning they are Yeah, it can happen in the daytime they are standing in the street and one rupee or one rupee or

00:42:12--> 00:42:20

one rupee or the only one with only one rupee and you know where you are going to give one rupee or when the rate to the US dollar is almost 14,000

00:42:21--> 00:42:22

I know right.

00:42:24--> 00:42:32

So you will give them so much more. They get it from Indonesia, what is the population 230,000,230 5 million

00:42:34--> 00:43:10

to 75 to 80 who is growing as I'm speaking? Mashallah, mashallah, mashallah, mashallah, Mashallah. MashAllah is good, this grid Hamdulillah. So, it's so beautiful, because you might be to at 300, maybe tomorrow morning will be a little bit different. But it's so beautiful, because imagine how big the population is, if you do goodness, even one rupee here, if everyone had to give one root beer, and half the population or a quarter or a third had to give you would make 100 million root beer in a minute. I'm just giving an example.

00:43:12--> 00:43:54

So some beggars, they know what big population let's go, let's do it. For you, as a human being you it's hard to tell you have to use your own discretion. While you want to help those who are in need. You also do not want to promote scammers. So now it's very difficult because I see someone and to me, he looks normal, maybe I don't want to give him maybe I want to give him in Islam. If you feel like you do not want to give you do not have to give if there is a doubt in your heart that this man might use this for drugs or whatever else or he doesn't need it or he's part of a scam, or whatever else it may be. It's okay you don't have to give because Allah says Allah to Allah know, Allah, if

00:43:54--> 00:44:27

me well, one, don't help people to do something which is sinful or wrong, enmity, and so on. Don't so it's hard. I'm a human, I don't know what to do. It's hard. So Allah did not say a messiah ill as for the beggar give him Allah didn't say that. Did Allah save as for the beggar give him No, he didn't. He only said, Latin Hara, don't rebuke him. Don't abuse him. Don't disrespect him. If you want to give give respectfully. You don't want to give don't give respectfully.

00:44:28--> 00:44:46

You know, my father. Long back there was many, many years ago, there was a beggar who used to stand on the road. And in order to just keeping quiet. I said, I looked at him from the window. And I said, Tomorrow, my father said, are you even going to see this guy tomorrow? Why you said tomorrow?

00:44:47--> 00:44:58

Maybe you can just excuse yourself or you can say maybe next time, but don't lie to say I'll give you tomorrow when you know you will not even see him maybe tomorrow.

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

Don't give a beggar false hope and worse than that don't rebuke him abuse him a you. You are a crook who said how do you know I'm a crook? I know you're a part of a scam. Today chef who was was telling us in the speech that these many scam

00:45:14--> 00:45:15

Come on, come on.

00:45:16--> 00:45:18

You're using my name also to do that.

00:45:21--> 00:45:39

So we need to respect everyone, even those who we are doubting some time give off a respect. Allah says you know what? Your duty is to ensure that you did not do something wrong. Even if they are doing something wrong. They're wrong is against them. You're right, we'll be for you.

00:45:41--> 00:46:06

Allah says one Messiah in a fella Tana. Now my point is, if Allah is telling you that as for the beggar, the most important thing you can give him is dignity and respect. Tell me dignity and respect is one of the most important things you can give any human being including your spouse, your children, your parents, your in laws, and whoever else it may be today, we have lost that respect amongst each other.

00:46:07--> 00:46:14

We don't respect so even if you treat me like how Allah tells you to treat a beggar, we would solve the problem. The see

00:46:16--> 00:46:39

solve the problem, look at how beautiful Allah words it Allah says, You know what it could have been you. It could have been you, right? Things can change. So imagine it was you and someone rebukes you they sway you. And so you can leave you you don't need to look in that direction. I do it sometimes people are knocking the window don't even look just keep on stuff Allah Oh Allah help this person carry on.

00:46:40--> 00:46:51

And if you are feeling there are some people you feel for them, you might talk to them, they look like okay, this person looks decent. You might be making a mistake. But if you made a genuine mistake, Allah will reward you don't worry, Allah will reward you because you try.

00:46:52--> 00:47:04

So my brothers and sisters, your duty is to reach out to people do you know amongst us there are widows, there are widows, these widows they are VIPs in the eyes of Allah.

00:47:06--> 00:47:27

Among us there might be orphans, these orphans are the doors to paradise for anyone who wants to look after them. The Prophet Muhammad says not only a door to Paradise, but more than that, they will be with me like these two fingers, if they look after an orphan only for the sake of Allah.

00:47:30--> 00:48:04

widows and orphans are categories in community if you were to connect for the sake of Allah and serve them. Allah says you are equivalent to a person who fasts all day every day and who stands in prayer all night every night in reward, your reward is equal to the one who does the hard job and beyond that pm will lay in and everything throughout the whole night you are standing in prayer, but in actual fact you are sleeping why you are looking after widows and orphans Subhanallah

00:48:05--> 00:48:38

that is Islam. The Prophet Muhammad says and our Kefalonia team cotta in evil Jana, myself and the one who looks after orphans. We will be like this in paradise, two fingers, you know what? He was an orphan. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of creation the most noble of all messengers who Allah chose him to be an orphan. That's why I tell my beloved children who are orphans don't lose hope in the Mercy of Allah. If you lost your father, it does not mean Allah does not like you. The one whom Allah loved the most Allah made him go through exactly the same.

00:48:41--> 00:48:42

We follow.

00:48:43--> 00:49:05

And as for the widows, great reward. If you take care of them only for the sake of Allah The same applies to any category of society and community that is downtrodden in any way whatsoever. You have people who are divorced sometimes treat them with respect, do not abuse them. Look out for them.

00:49:06--> 00:49:07

Try to get them married.

00:49:09--> 00:49:15

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him look at his wives. All of them were previously married besides one

00:49:18--> 00:49:20

at a Sharia law Ronna yet

00:49:21--> 00:49:24

he was the Nibi of Allah, he was the highest of all.

00:49:25--> 00:49:48

Today someone is divorced Hollis. That is like a sentence finished, throw them out and it's over your life is gone. That's how some communities look. It should never be like that. These are VIPs in the eyes of Allah. And even if there was a mistake that happened a mistake does not define you. I always say my brothers and sisters, Allah does not judge you based on your sin. He judges you based on your repentance.

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

Allah judges you based on your Toba on your repentance no matter what you did in the past. The past is the past P A S T It's over. It's gone. It's history.

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

If it's not now,

00:50:03--> 00:50:15

right now if I say Oh Allah, forgive me, whatever I done was wrong. I don't want to do it again, I repent to you, I'm your slave, forgive all my sins. Allah says, You know what forgiven us. It's over, don't lose hope.

00:50:16--> 00:50:20

And then Shavon comes around the corner one more time. You see, shaytan is a devil.

00:50:22--> 00:50:58

Devil, he comes around the corner one more first he made you do the sins and he he kept on making you do sins for many, many years you did so many very, very bad sins. And then when you will one day, turn to Allah with a warm tear rolling down your cheeks, Oh ALLAH forgive me, I have wronged and so on. And you as you feel so good and so nice and happy and you feel clean and calm. And trust me, there is no way that you will not be forgiven. If you are sincere. Allah will always forgive you. Even if you go back to him 100 times he will forgive you 101 times

00:50:59--> 00:51:03

shaitan comes again, what does he say? Hey,

00:51:04--> 00:51:29

you remember the sins you committed? Yes. Well, they were so bad, worse than all other people. Okay. Are you sure? Yes. You asked for forgiveness. But Allah won't forgive you. Not you. Me not forgiven. Yeah, they were bad since look at our Chez Panisse talking. They were bad. Now you start thinking Maybe Allah did not forgive me that maybe is a problem.

00:51:30--> 00:51:40

That Shavon Allah says, Why are you entertaining that was wasa again. Why are you entertaining the devil? Again?

00:51:42--> 00:51:45

La takanobu Mira Medina.

00:51:46--> 00:52:09

Allah says don't ever lose hope in the Mercy of Allah and you are losing open the Mercy of Allah. It means you have not recognized that Allah you don't know who is Allah? Does Allah need your ibadah? Does Allah need your obedience? No. Does Allah be affected by your sin? Is Allah affected by your sin? No. You are affected.

00:52:10--> 00:52:24

When you do good, it's for you. Man and Milla Sally hadn't fully enough. See Allah makes it clear in the Quran woman Assa Allah whoever does good it's for them not for me. And whoever does bad it's against them not against me.

00:52:26--> 00:52:30

That's why Allah says Bala Moo and fossa home those who wronged themselves

00:52:32--> 00:52:37

those who wronged themselves because you are wronging yourself Subhanallah

00:52:38--> 00:53:09

so remember, do not let shaytan come back to you and make you think I'm not forgiven. Right here right now sitting in this beautiful hall in Jakarta. We can actually all be forgiven. You just need to spend the moment Oh ALLAH forgive my shortcomings. The sins I know the sins I don't know. Oh ALLAH forgive me. Oh Allah grant me mercy. Oh Allah, I admit my sin. I regret it. I will not do it again. Forgive me and grant me the strength to stay away from it. Amen.

00:53:11--> 00:53:13

forgiven, start a new leaf

00:53:14--> 00:53:22

and see how Allah will open your doors. My brothers and sisters I didn't realize that I actually spoke for 52 minutes

00:53:24--> 00:53:30

but inshallah all in a good course. Next time when I come I will chop seven minutes from my speech.

00:53:32--> 00:53:47

Now no child Okay, may Allah bless you all. I pray that the few words I have spoken about can help us to connect with Allah through serving humanity and serving others there are so many points I could go on and on and on but let's strike a deal can we strike a deal?

00:53:49--> 00:54:28

I will continue this speech but online inshallah. Allah bless you may Allah grantees insha Allah on online, we continue always and that's how I think we know each other through technology. May Allah Almighty help us to use technology in a way that we can enter Jannah technology is a tool we must embrace it in the right way. We must use it correctly.

Thank you for this opportunity.

00:55:27--> 00:55:30

Welcome to Jakarta. Dr. Murthy.

00:55:32--> 00:55:33

I have

00:55:34--> 00:55:46

one, one, maybe two questions. One, first one then another one. Okay. Okay. It's the following questions. Okay. So the first questions is, actually,

00:55:47--> 00:55:52

I have disabled son, he actually

00:55:53--> 00:55:56

cannot talk cannot walk for fun. Yes.

00:55:57--> 00:56:02

He just can laugh, or cry or so.

00:56:04--> 00:56:05

What I'm going to ask you this.

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

I have a dog that

00:56:10--> 00:56:11

is there

00:56:12--> 00:56:20

any way to teach him to pray to connect to Allah in the right way. So maybe

00:56:21--> 00:56:24

to teach him how to do do.

00:56:26--> 00:56:27

Do read Quran that way.

00:56:29--> 00:57:19

The brother is asking about a child of his who cannot speak and so on. And yet his concern is about connecting him with Allah. You heard that? I want to tell you something. My brother, Allah Almighty makes things easy. For tequila Hamas. tatata. Allah says, you have to do the best that you can and leave the rest in the eyes of Allah in the hands of Allah, I tell you what, these children they are not McAuliffe. In most instances, they perhaps are not even answerable for some things they may do or not do because they don't know depending on the level that he is upon. You just need to keep trying. And you need to keep trying with him. Even if it takes a long time and it does not come to

00:57:19--> 00:58:08

fruition. It's still okay the reward you get. Keep trying keep making dua. I am not an expert, but the child is your door and your spouse's door to Jana. If you look after this child, your entry into Jana will be easier than most of us, if not all of us. And the fact that you are asking about how he can get closer to Allah, that question alone, it made my hair stand because it is a concern that those who have able children do not have at times they don't care. The child is old, teenage and so on and beyond. They still don't know who is Allah. So my brother, congratulations. Number one, Allah gave you a gift to look after the gift is not easy. It's like looking after the most expensive

00:58:08--> 00:58:09

diamond in the whole world.

00:58:11--> 00:58:52

Everyone wants to come, everyone wants to steal maybe everyone wants to harm you have to look after this diamond with your life. This is your gift habibi. I tell you something. I'm not a medical expert. And I don't know exactly how to train the child. But you will get the help from whoever is an expert in sha Allah. As for what I know, Allah will not hold you responsible for more than you can do so you do as much as you can and Insha Allah we pray that Allah give him miraculous recovery I mean Allah who must be Allah Who Murphy Allah Who Maya Shafi, in Santa Shafi la Shiva in LA Shiva, Shiva en la yoga, karma wala Suman who Allah Allah may Allah cure your baby, barrio

00:58:55--> 00:58:55

la vaca

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

to get the hang of

00:58:59--> 00:59:01

Tanya and Lady in Shaohua

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

runner citizen but somebody can make

00:59:06--> 00:59:07

a blog like Sheila can

00:59:10--> 00:59:24

simulate ramen Roma Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Consider, thank you for coming to Indonesia. First question, how can we make ourselves consistent to follow Islamic teaching in our daily life? Um, it's so hard to

00:59:25--> 00:59:59

be consistent after coming to this event, I will pray five times a day from chance, but after a couple of weeks or months, it whereas those things will fall apart. And second quick one. Do you have any tips on how to overcome the feeling of being guilty for your action in the past? You mentioned the past is the past but sometimes it bothers your head. Thank you very much. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim guilt is something that is good when it comes to the bad that you've done but the fact that you feel the guilt must not make you doubt the fact that you are forgiven by Allah you are embarrassed, safe

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

For example, the embarrassment of cheating on someone or the embarrassment of doing something bad and then the person says, Don't worry, it's over. It's okay. But every time you see them, you're like, gosh, I shouldn't have done that, you know, gosh, I shouldn't have done that, that that guilty feeling is not because you are doubting the forgiveness. But because you're embarrassed I shouldn't have when you know the status of your maker and how big he is and how, how great he is. You feel embarrassed of how as little as I am, I was transgressing against the One who created entire creation. You know, there is something called the James Webb telescope. Have you heard of it? You go

01:00:35--> 01:01:19

and google it today James Webb telescope, I promise you check. It's a telescope that that is that is bringing us images from outer space. Do you know there are so many millions and millions of planets which they never ever knew existed? And galaxies that they didn't know existed? Now they are suddenly seeing Oh, all of this. It's just mind boggling. And Allah mentions it in the Quran. And Allah tells us about Jana and Allah tells us how the Earth is so insignificant as per the rest of his creation. And Allah says it will help us somewhat he will be helping us while Akina Karana Silla, the creation of the skies and the earth is far bigger than the creation of men, but men

01:01:19--> 01:01:53

doesn't know many men don't know and so on. So that feeling of guilt, it will come Don't worry. For as long as it is not a feeling of guilt which makes you doubt the Mercy of Allah, it's a good thing. But if it makes you doubt the Mercy of Allah, then you have a problem with recognizing who Allah is. That's the second part of what you asked the first part of it my brother, when we decide I'm going to pray, I'm going to do the right thing I'm going to do whatever I have to I'm going to be the kindest and most amazing human being possible. One of the most powerful gifts you can have is good company, your companions your friends, you need to either encourage them either you need to

01:01:53--> 01:02:20

encourage your friends look, we're going to do this together. So prayer time, we all pray, when you have to go to eat you make sure there is no meaning you don't consume anything that is not allowed etc. When you have to do something you make sure you do the right thing when there is something wrong because you are in good company you don't even look yeah, I remember one of the youngsters was telling me that you know when I'm with good people, even if there is nudity, we don't even look because we are with each other talking so and so but when you're alone You are like

01:02:21--> 01:02:28

you know looking all the way and then you justify it because the habit says you know the first Nadra is not is not against you, the guy says

01:02:30--> 01:02:33

so what are you doing? Look down he says but it's still my first come on.

01:02:36--> 01:03:22

So may Allah forgive us so good company is a really good thing consistency. Secondly, when you have a connection with some Masjid near you, or some scholar or some in your community, and you you are even online, get used to a habit of listening every so often to some speech. I give you one last example. Joe Moran is Friday. Juma comes from Jama Jama Amin's together so the importance of gathering in Islam is so much that you are taught you must go for Jama either no DLs, Salah Timonium, when Giamatti first how illogical Allah whenever you are called on for prayer on a Friday you rush towards the remembrance of Allah the reminder the speech Villa here is referring to that

01:03:22--> 01:04:03

Joomla the hotbar and the salah you go for it right? Why, once a week you need to listen to a powerful short message to remind you Hey, remember what we agreed right? So every week once minimum listen to a good talk that will remind you again no no improve your situation until a day comes when inshallah you will automatically be cured of all of that. It's like cough mixture, you cannot have the whole bottle one time doctor will say have one spoon every day. At the same time so you have a spoon coffee is less of a spoon coffee is less another spoon. By the time few days are up when your course is over. The coffee is gone. What happened? You had little while but if you drink the whole

01:04:03--> 01:04:41

bottle, you will cough more after a while. That's why when you swing and you have no coping mechanism, people say they shahada and they come into Islam. If there is no follow up with such beautiful brothers and sisters, they begin to dilly dally I always say Islam is knowledge based the more you know the more you will love it. When you don't know much you start to doubt it you don't know because you don't have the answers. But the answers are there keep on asking until you receive a satisfactory response. So good company as well as listening and attending maybe online classes like I say you might be a businessman or whoever else you might not have the time to go especially

01:04:41--> 01:04:56

in Jakarta where the traffic is so much you may not be able to go here use technology use technology before I came here they already told me much it big masala so I lent a little bit of Bahasa I said when I go there I will just you know flex a bit of my Bahasa

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

Allah bless you guys Baraka lovely

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

Maybe one more ship mashallah just maybe one more we can have one more

01:05:06--> 01:05:12

sisters they are complaining we didn't take a sister maybe for the sisters yeah maybe for the sister

01:05:19--> 01:05:20

bless y'all Allah

01:05:27--> 01:05:28

so did her mind

01:05:32--> 01:05:32

mafia

01:05:36--> 01:05:42

sounds like some left to him. Thank you. My question is

01:05:43--> 01:05:58

somewhat said that we shouldn't control Allah with our pay means that we shouldn't ask Allah please give me that give me those Give me days. That means that we control Allah

01:05:59--> 01:06:12

in in fact it's been said too that we must ask even for our shoe tie right? Even for our shoe tie we must ask them from Allah

01:06:13--> 01:06:16

then I ask your opinion

01:06:18--> 01:06:18

is it true that

01:06:20--> 01:06:38

thank you beautiful question. Normally when the sisters asking questions I get so worried because they come up with all sorts of questions and you know it's a good thing very good thing but I have to make sure that I answer correctly but this one mashallah we have evidence in Quran and Sunnah so it's easy to answer Mashallah.

01:06:39--> 01:06:44

So, Allah Almighty wants you to ask him

01:06:45--> 01:06:57

Allah Almighty wants you to ask him he makes it very clear. What either sir Alka eBuddy Neva in me Cory Boone oh gee Buddha,

01:06:58--> 01:06:59

either.

01:07:01--> 01:07:07

When Yes, the G Mooney will new meno be the Allahu mianzhu.

01:07:09--> 01:07:58

The verses of fasting in Surah Al Baqarah. Just after that, Allah says, When my worshipers asked you about me, I am very near. I respond to everyone who calls out to me, when they call out to me so call out to me. Allah says funnily SDG boo Li, let them call out to me ask me whatever they want, when you mean OB and let them believe the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says malum Yes, Allah Yabba Lee. It's a hadith that explains how important it is to call out to Allah because you are dependent on Allah, the Hadith, the meaning of it, the literal meaning of it is, whoever does not call out to Allah, whoever does not ask Allah, Allah is upset with him. You're not asking me

01:07:58--> 01:08:36

Subhanallah there will always be things in your life. You will have to call out to Allah for those things, everything and anything. I want you to go through the DUA, sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He asked Allah for everything Oh Allah guide me, oh Allah give me good health, protect me from disease protect me from sickness. Why did he ask if it was wrong to ask Allah? It does not mean that you are controlling Allah not at all you are just begging him and begging him because begging Allah is a part of a bada a DUA, who are Ibadah DUA and calling out to Allah is actually ibadah. Because what does it mean?

01:08:38--> 01:08:44

If you want something and you are asking someone for that thing, it means you believe he has that thing, right?

01:08:46--> 01:09:26

If I want $14 million, and I'm going to ask someone who doesn't even have $1,000 Please give me 14 million. He's not laughing at her. I wish I had it. Right? But if I come to you and say Brother, give me 40 million, I know you probably have 400 million, you probably have more you have something more so when you say oh Allah give me good health, you know, he owns health of everyone on Earth. Oh Allah give me this. It is worship, I am greater the DUA, the more in your heart you are confirming the grandeur of Allah subhanho wa taala. So keep asking, I think it's a misunderstanding to say don't ask Allah you will be do you know you're controlling him? It's no, no, no. We will ask Allah

01:09:26--> 01:09:44

and we will ask him for anything. If I want to walk from here to there. Even if I know I can say oh, Allah make it easy for me to walk from here to there. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, every breath of yours in the hands of Allah, your heartbeats, 136,000 times on average, maybe

01:09:45--> 01:09:52

more or less with some people right depending but on average, I tell you what, every heartbeat is in the hands of your Lord.

01:09:53--> 01:10:00

You ask him Oh Allah grant me goodness grant me good health. Let my heart ask those who don't have good health where they

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

On May Allah bless you all I think we we don't really have much more time for more questions do we? Yes we don't each other because what how I worked it is. There were two men and one woman but I tell you how I understood it. One was a child and this was a male and a female. So we are Fairchild. Baraka. Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah Wa Alaikum. Salaam, Masha Mashallah.
