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

My beloved brothers, my sisters, be conscious of the day in which you are going to return to Allah.

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

Be conscious of the day in which you are going to return to Allah.

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

Prepare for that day.

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

We have many issues across the globe that we need to speak about and remind one another about with the idea of preparing for the day we are going to meet with Allah

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

when you achieve on this earth, thank Allah

00:00:32--> 00:00:38

and don't let that achievement make you turn away from your Lord. Yah you

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

son who might have been a beacon carrying Oh man, what is it that has deceived you against your own Lord?

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

A loving Father McAfee for some work of

00:00:59--> 00:01:04

fee are useful wanting Masha

00:01:05--> 00:01:13

Kovac, the one who has created you, he has fashioned you he has given you your identity, the one who has

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

really given you your shape and your form, how can you turn away from your Lord. Similarly, when it comes to loss, my brothers and sisters,

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

the opposite of the achievement.

00:01:28--> 00:01:57

Like I said, Do not let your achievements distance you from Allah. The more you get, the closer you should become to Allah. That means you have the blessings of Allah. It's easy to earn, it's easy to get power, it's easy to have authority. It's easy to be placed above others in terms of position and so on. But it's not easy for everyone to allow that particular gift of Allah to make you actually come closer to Allah.

00:01:59--> 00:02:24

When your gift has allowed you to come closer to Allah, you have indeed achieved in a similar fashion when you suffer a loss. People are divided into two categories. At times, the loss would actually make people closer to Allah that is a gift of Allah. Any loss that brings you closer to Allah is not a loss. It is a game.

00:02:26--> 00:03:20

Even if that last last your entire lifetime. In the hereafter when you meet with Allah, you will have achieved the everlasting bliss of Jana DOS, my beloved brothers, my sisters, there are some from amongst us whom when they suffer a loss, they turn to haram. They turned to intoxicants they turned to that which is in disobedience of Allah don't let that happen. Whether it is suffering a loss in your family, in your social circles, in your authority, or in your wealth, in your health, when you suffer a loss as a believer, come closer to Allah. One might ask, How long should I bear patience? My brothers and sisters bear patience for as long as it takes no problem. Are you not a

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

believer?

00:03:23--> 00:03:26

In ama you were facade

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

people you didn't need.

00:03:32--> 00:04:18

Allah says Allah recompenses those who bet patience, unlimited unlimitedly without an account without limits. Imagine someone says, I'm going to give you unlimited What do you want? What do you want? No matter what you say you can continue to ask that is the reward of the one who best patients. It is said that the one who is sick and ill when he or she bears patients for the sake of Allah when they see the reward of the suffering that Allah chose them to go through on the Day of Judgment, they will have hoped that they remained sick and in for longer, so that they could have a bigger reward. Imagine when you are bearing patients doing nothing but bearing patients. It is so

00:04:18--> 00:04:24

tough that Allah Almighty gives you a reward only on that condition.

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

You are earning a reward only because you are bearing patients. So tune yourselves to come closer to Allah as the days pass. May Allah Almighty grant us from His goodness, my brothers and sisters, unfortunately, some people turn to other people when they have a problem in a way that is not befitting a believer. They would go to someone at times purporting to be religious and what would they do? They would say, Malcolm I have a problem. I need you to do something for me so that I have this money or this

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

supposition or this woman or this man, all my relation with that person is like this or like that believing that this person has some superstitious power that will bring about the desired effect and impact whereas that power belongs to Allah and in the case of Allah it is not superstition, it is just his power.

00:05:22--> 00:05:47

Never turn to other people to solve your problems by visiting those who claim to know the unseen or who can help you with the unseen because ultimately it will result in your destruction and death and it will cause tremendous pain to you and your family and those you are trying to affect an impact men are rough and hidden for so data who be

00:05:48--> 00:06:04

the camera be my own Zilla Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever visits a fortune teller or a soothsayer, one of these people who claim to know the unseen to help you regarding the unseen if you just visit them.

00:06:05--> 00:06:12

The Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says, If you believe what they have to say, you have disbelieved in what I have broad

00:06:13--> 00:07:00

is it worth it? Is it worth losing your iman by visiting people just because you are fed up of something happening in your life, bear suffering, tend to the Quran AYATUL kursi the three tours at the end of the Quran and if last and Alma with a 10 Pull up been fired up to be nurse. Do you not have conviction in the word of Allah? How much time of the day do you spend reading the Quran and then you want to visit a witch doctor you want to visit a soothsayer you want to visit a magician you want to visit a person who might cast a spell Wallah he my brothers and sisters by visiting by believing the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says fatted calf Farah Bhima wounds Allah Allah

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

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, such a person by merely believing that someone besides Allah can bring me good fortune has disbelieved in the message brought by Muhammad salallahu Salam, engage in Toba, seek the forgiveness of Allah if you have done this, and it is rampant in societies across the globe, among people who call themselves Muslims. Where is it? My beloved brothers, my sisters, we should never do that. It is something that we have to speak about. Because we are losing our faith in Allah. My brothers, my sisters, it is Allah alone who controls your destiny. Those people do not control their own destiny. There was a brother, who was at one of the airports.

00:07:51--> 00:08:34

And he was with his wife, a certain man came to him and told him, I will tell you your future for $75. And he said, I'm not interested. I'm a believer. He continued to work with him. He says, I'll tell you your future for $17. He says I am not interested. I'm a believer. He says he continued to work with him until he got to $5 until he got to $5 Subhan Allah may Allah Almighty grant of strength, my brothers, my sisters, at that juncture, the man sat next to these people and told him you will die at the age of 70 You will die at the age of 70.

00:08:36--> 00:09:27

Later on, he says I am waiting for my $5 I'm waiting for my $5 this brother who is a believer in Allah told him, my beloved brother, I want to tell you, if you don't even know that I'm not going to give you the $5 How would you know the future of the 70 years? Subhan Allah? How would you know I'm not even going to give you $5 And if you knew the future so well why would you be sitting begging from people for 50 and $70 Subhan Allah, the moral is My Beloved brothers, my sisters tend to Allah. Build a good relation with him. Read your Quran every day I attend Chrissy is powerful, it will protect you from anyone trying to cast a spell against you. It will protect you from anyone trying

00:09:27--> 00:09:39

to harm you listen to the dua of the Prophet Muhammad sallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to say Bismillah in the Name of Allah, Allah de la your guru might ask me he che you wouldn't feel our way.

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

Well, if he is someone who was Sameer, in the name of Allah, by whose name Nothing will harm on earth, no in the skies and he is the All Hearing all knowing. Repeat that dua on a daily basis Nothing will harm you. You require one condition

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

If your faith and conviction, I am convinced what will harm me nothing. Zero. I belong to Allah do what you want. May Allah protect all of us. It is the firm conviction that creates a solid dome around you. You have the Lord of the Worlds looking after you He will protect you, you do not need to resort to haram in order to achieve or to be protected.

00:10:27--> 00:10:37

Similarly, if you look at the reason of revelation of the last two Sutras of the Quran could have been fella could have been nurse it is connected to protection against magic.

00:10:39--> 00:11:29

read those verses you will find anyone who ties knots and blows in them is considered a magician. And the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says man Sahara forgot the Ashoka Allahu Akbar, whoever casts a spell, has engaged in association of partners with Allah, you remove yourself from the fold for what, don't do that and don't go to someone to do that. It has never brought about goodness, if there was any goodness, in all of that the person doing it would have had the life of the King of kings. They themselves are full. They have nothing. They don't even know what's coming or going in their own lives. They have health matters and problems just like you and I, but they are fooling us

00:11:29--> 00:11:37

and the times, yes, they do get involved in the dark side of things. We are believers we are always with the more of Allah.

00:11:39--> 00:11:46

Today's message is very strong. Allah will give you continue to develop your relation with Allah.

00:11:47--> 00:12:32

Allah will propel you into a position he knows he wants you at at the time that he wants you there. If it hasn't come, if it doesn't come, it's okay. We are still with Allah, I will achieve ultimate success of the hereafter. Anyway, my beloved brothers, my sisters, when you suffer a loss in your health, do not become despondent, you do two things, you seek medical help, and at the same time you call out to Allah and Allah alone, oh Allah guide the doctors, you might have a herbalist no harm in going to someone who might offer you alternative medication in terms of homeopathy, or maybe some herbs, etc, that are permissible, no harm. Together with that, what do you do you call out to Allah

00:12:32--> 00:13:20

Oh Allah guide the doctor to diagnose the sickness guide the doctor to give me the correct medication or in the case of for example, a procedure that is going to take place Oh Allah guide the doctor so that this procedure can be successful, but who are you calling out to to Allah and Allah alone, that is success, that is success. But to turn for example, to those who claim to call the spirits of the dead, and they might be doing some of that, whether they are or they are not. It's not from the life of a believer to go in that direction. You believe in Allah. Don't go to those who claim that they will call the spirits of the dead and they do at times it is a whole different

00:13:21--> 00:13:47

matter. But at the same time if you believe in Allah, He has addressed it in the Quran, and he has addressed it in the Sunnah. You need to start off by reading the meanings of the last two Sutras of the Quran. I mean Sheffield was worse I'll Canis Allah, the US with the sudo reverse minute Jimena T oneness. It sounds so beautiful. Have you ever considered the meaning of the sutras? Have you gone into the reasons of revelation of the sutras?

00:13:49--> 00:14:33

Mean Shall we have sitting either acid, we are seeking the protection of the jealous one when he is jealous of us. More important than that is for you not to be jealous of someone else. It's always good for us to say my brothers, my sisters have good friends have good company. But the big question is, are you good company for others? Are you a good friend for those whom you are interacting with? That's a bigger question than the other one. The same applies here. You want to be protected from jealousy? How jealous? Are you of others? Are you happy when you see someone else grow beyond your growth? Or are you upset? Today we have a disease we need to correct within our hearts and that is

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

we lack being happy at the happiness of another. We ask Allah Almighty to protect us. We ask Allah Almighty to bless us my brothers and sisters. You have a gift beyond any other gift. What is that gift Kyle had the had you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best of examples the example of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

And ultimately when you meet with Allah at the end of your whole path of this worldly journey, and you get to Allah, you get to him with a book that you are proud of May Allah Almighty grant us ease and goodness.

00:20:24--> 00:20:54

So my brothers and sisters, I ask that Allah have mercy on all of us. Pray for those who don't have what you have. Reach out to those who don't have what you have, as Allah's goodness, pray for your nation, may Allah grant this nation beautiful growth. May Allah Almighty bless this nation in every single way and protect it, protect it from harm from evil, from loss, from negativity, from calamity, from disease, from sickness, may Allah granted growth in not only its economy, but in the beauty of the hearts of its people.

00:20:56--> 00:21:39

I visit many times and I always tell people, you don't know what Nigeria is all about. You have not interacted with the people you might know a few people, you might know a few things that are negative, but you cannot judge 280 to 300 million people based on the actions of five or 10, or a few 100. small percentage might such an insignificant minority, unfortunately, that's how the world works. If a million people have crossed the road, no one talks about it. One man who did not make it across was bumped by a car that is the news headlines. May Allah Almighty protect us. Thank Allah, He has blessed you. He has given you protect the peace and stability of your nation by being the

00:21:39--> 00:21:43

best citizen, be responsible in what you say and how you say it.

00:21:44--> 00:22:20

Thank Allah, you have a gift. If you look around the globe, you will find you was you will find hardship, you will find calamity learn from that protect yourself, living harmony with those whom you disagree with. And Allah will bless you live in harmony with those whom you disagree with, you may disagree with very strongly, no problem, but be respectful, and never, ever engage in anything that will disturb the peace and stability because the gift of a man is actually very closely after the gift of E man.

00:22:21--> 00:23:07

first gift you have we said it's a man after that. It's your man. It's your safety. It's your security. What is the beauty? Or what does a nation that has no security but all the wealth in the world? What do they have? I'd rather be in a nation that has a little bit less, but we are safe, we love each other, we look at each other. You could belong to different faiths all together. Guess what, there is a mutual respect. That's what it is. I disagree. You disagree. Let contino come one day at the water powerful. First, you have your faith and I have mine SubhanAllah. The same applies among the Muslims themselves. Be careful of those who want to instill hatred in your heart. To the

00:23:07--> 00:23:16

degree that you have an urge to be violent or physical that is detrimental to your very core and existence. Be careful of that.

00:23:17--> 00:23:49

We stand on the pulpit on this Friday to remind you my brothers, my sisters, the Dean of Allah, it has a very powerful, beautiful presence that does not require you to be violent, hurtful, or abusive. We are so confident of the truth that we have that we don't need to really worry about the falsehood, it stands no chance be confident of it. I have a beautiful internal peace because I know nothing can shake it. What

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

was happen?

00:23:55--> 00:23:59

In many bow tilaka NASA who?

00:24:00--> 00:24:08

When the truth comes, what does it do to falsehood? automatically, automatically it obliterates it people will know.

00:24:09--> 00:24:53

You see, there was one of the Messiah who was explaining to the young students, that here there is a crooked line, for example, that someone has drawn, say on the blackboard, they drew a crooked line. Now the people came and they were told how do you tell the public that this is crooked? Or how do you straighten it? So each student came up with their own solution. I will do this I'll rub it off, I will bend it, I will do this and that. And ultimately, the mentor taught them look when there is a crooked line in front of you. Rather than wasting your time about declaring how crooked it is. Draw a straight line next to it and keep it moving. Keep it moving. The whole world will pass by say

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

that's a crooked line. This is a straight line. What more do you want? What more do you want you are productive and constructive rather than

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

destroy and create that which is negative May Allah make it easy for us. Obviously, that example may not apply in every aspect but it is something worth pondering over. May Allah Almighty grant us ease and goodness,

00:25:14--> 00:25:56

I ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to alleviate the struggles of every one of us. Indeed, part of life is that you will go through challenges even in your own health. On a regular basis, once or twice in the year you might get a flu or a cough, a sickness, a bit of a stomach, run, etc. It's part of the plan of Allah to show you all mankind you are only but human. Allah Akbar, Allahu Akbar, that take it in your stride. Take it in your stride. It's not the end of all. You're a believer. May Allah alleviate the struggles of those who are homeless? May Allah alleviate the struggles of those who don't know where they're going to eat their lunch today, if any meal at all, may Allah alleviate the

00:25:56--> 00:26:33

struggles of those who are finding it difficult to get clothing to cover themselves. May Allah help those who are homeless, those who don't have those who are unhealthy those across the globe who are struggling with anxiety and uncertainty. May Allah make it easy for them for us for everyone. Pray for others, you find the Mercy of Allah descending upon you here is Muhammad peace be upon him telling us when you pray for someone else, the angels are saying oh Allah give this person something similar or better, whose dua is better? Mine or the angels, the angels? How do I achieve the dua of the angels by praying for someone else?

00:26:35--> 00:26:59

May Allah Almighty have mercy on all of us? May Allah Almighty help us so that when we are going through struggles when we want to achieve something, when we are going through Goodness, no matter what it is, all of that makes us closer to Him and we never resort to that which is displeasing to Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us engage in the correct Toba brothers and sisters, the final invite I have for you today.

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

I invite you and myself the invitation of Allah Yeah. Are you ready?

00:27:08--> 00:27:13

To Boo in Allah? He told me button.

00:27:14--> 00:27:17

Second invitation of the same nature.

00:27:18--> 00:27:22

Kalia Imereti, Yun levena, Osama, for Allah

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

for seeing him.

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

Boom, you know, Matthew Dillon, in

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

goober, Jeremy in

00:27:34--> 00:28:27

the third invitation exactly the same direction were to boo in Hola. Hey, Jeremy. And I you mean oh Nana, and let come to me, oh, all of them telling us turn back to Allah. Oh, you who believe in order that you may succeed. So that invitation is to seek the forgiveness of Allah on a daily basis. Look, it might be difficult for me to say to anyone or even to look in the mirror and tell myself hey, you turn to Allah. But the example of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him the perfect from amongst us. He used to seek the forgiveness of Allah up to 100 times a day. He did not need it. But that's the example. So if he did that, I will do it. Let me tell you the beauty of it. The first

00:28:27--> 00:28:59

time that you said Oh ALLAH forgive me the first time your cells were wiped out but you repeated it 99 times after that, guess what the rest of them did for you. They kept on elevating your status more and more and more. So I am not down at the mercy of Allah. I am repeating Oh ALLAH forgive me not because I doubt the time forgiven. I'm forgiven. Islam is based on mercy. It is based on love. But I'm repeating it because I love my maker. I want to get closer to him.

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

And so he elevates my status BarakAllahu Li You were looking for and he was sunnah. Wonderful. Anyway, yeah. Can't be Murphy Hema minute. It will Hekmati. Abu Kohli hada what Astok Villa honey welcome Melissa Ilsley mean festival bureau in Abu al Rahim.
