Lecture in Memory of Adeel Hussain at Bolton, UK
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa
sahbihi wa gonna be explaining Eli ahmedinejad
we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala sin complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless his household and all his companions and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless every single one of us and to grant us goodness.
Firstly, we call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant mercy and forgiveness to the brother who lost his life on the way to this particular function.
And I've decided to change the topic of discussion
based on what has just happened, because it is a wake up call for myself every time I leave the home, I tell myself I may not return
and this is in line with the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam wherein there are so many a hadith that remind us of the closeness of this.
And how he says when you read Salah, you should read your prayers as though it may be the last prayer you will be reading suddenly, Salah thermodyne when you fulfill your prayer, don't read it like a chicken trying to pick little grains from the ground. No, but you should take your time read your Salah, as though this is your last opportunity to obey the instructions of Allah Buddha, he was gentle.
And then also he says increase the remembrance of that which destroys all your desires. You know you have so many desires, we hope and pray that other desires we have are actually within the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
But if you think of death, sometimes it keeps you in check. That is something that is not a disaster. In fact, it is a gift for a believer because he goes to the next level that he is supposed to be going to and this is why Allah Subhana what Allah says in Surah Al mamoon when he speaks about the different stages of creation, you know, he speaks about how you are firstly created and thereafter you the the form of the human being changes from one to the other.
After that you are born and thereafter you will die and after death, you will be resurrected once again. So this is all Allah subhanho wa Taala plan, we are now at the stage where we are alive, what's the next stage? We are going to die. And after that, we will be resurrected. So these are the stages we have to pass, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make it easy for us, rather than is something wrong with the sound system here. I'm not too sure exactly what it is. But there is something and I normally don't, you know, mind saying things out because without speaking you don't get what you want. It's okay if you cannot correct it, it will suffice.
So we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving us the forum and forgiving us The sooner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forgiving for giving us what is required to know where we're going and how to prepare for it. But at the same time, brother when I started the recitation, the sound was right in the middle, somebody tampered with it and spoiled, but it's fine.
It's just that it keeps the concentration levels a little bit better. Don't think I'm a disaster. I'm just a blunt person sometimes.
Because I firmly believe if you don't say you want something you won't get it. So why should I carry on for one and a half hours believing someone could have corrected it? When really, I didn't say anything?
Well, we think a lot that we do have sound back where I come from, to be honest with you at any given time the lights can go the sound from the boat so you think Allah, you've been trained without sound.
So brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us. But at the same time, we need to know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent us reminder after reminder, warning after warning, and he says to us why He created us last night I touched on it very slightly, where Allah says,
I have not created mankind or gene kind except that they worship me. I have created mankind and Jim kind for a reason and that is that they worship me and they get close to me they prepare for the day they will meet with me. So my aim in life is to prepare for the day I meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala What have I prepared for the day I meet with Allah? Have I associated partners with Allah so I will arrive and tell me Allah, I worship you. But I also worship x, y and Zed or my money or a stone or a stick or a grain or a tree? Is that what it was? If that's the case, we lose? We will be presenting this in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So understanding your aim in life is to prepare
for the day you are going to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala by worshiping him in the best way, and doing deeds for his sake and abstaining from deeds for his sake as well. Whatever he has asked you to abstain from you abstain, that is what will result in a good death. Today the brother was coming to an Islamic talk, he passed away We ask Allah to grant him the reward and to make it a means of his entry into paradise. Every step he was taking in his heart and mind I am going to learn something about Islam. I would like to be motivated to get closer to my makeup. Some people die on the way to a nightclub, some die on the way to a casino when we were entering Bolton, I saw so many
cars on the left. And I said Is this the venue? And when I turned around I said Subhanallah so many people have arrived. And the brothers told me this is a casino.
Now this evening,
and Subhanallah there will be people who may die in that venue or coming from it or to eat going to it. We need to ask ourselves would I like to die? Going to commit adultery or going to for example, a nightclub or going to a casino as I said, going to a shisha lounge for example. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us we don't want deaths. In that particular way. We would like to die in a condition that Allah is pleased with us because we will be resurrected according to the condition that we were in when we die. So Panama.
I'm sure you have seen the little clips that are floating around on YouTube and elsewhere.
of people who've passed away in conditions of Salah.
I thought there was something
If I did not speak
that's why I say you don't open your mouth you can keep on dreaming.
You know Allah subhanho wa Taala really has taught us a lot when you want to achieve something you need to use whatever is in your capacity that is given by a lot to try and get it within halaal inshallah, inshallah you will achieve that's a lesson I've learned. And I don't mind stopping in order to correct something, rather than going home and saying, you know what, they could have done better. No, it's done hamdulillah
I feel like starting the recitation all over again.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us, I will say I'm sure we might have seen or heard of people who've passed away in the condition of such that I know of a chef who passed away in the harem in Madina munawwara when I was there, in Salah to do on a Friday, first sup behind the Imam and work on Buddha, he went to such that he did not come back to Panama.
What today, I know of someone who's passed away, and I know of people who have passed away in the harem, I know of people who died on the mimbar as an Imam, and he's come down and drop dead before the Salah between the kotoba and the JAMA. And I know of people who've passed away in Roku and sujood in other massagin but the question is, if you do not read your Salah, what is the possibility of you dying in that condition? No, because you don't even read your Salah, you haven't even given you a chance yourself a chance to die in that condition. Because you don't even do that. Allahu Akbar, people pass away having gotten for Salah
was to ourselves, it's too cold, I can't get out. The water is too cold. This is too cold. Voila, here we are fortunate there are people in the rural areas of Dagestan and Russia, who do not have hot water. They don't even have taps in their homes, they get up
and walk for a distance before they make will do in a river. And then they come back and read their Salah in ice cold conditions far worse than Europe. What about them? So where are we? And people die in that condition sometimes. So this is why we say when you hear on a blessing death someone died with a colon in their hand. Do you read the Quran that you can at least have the probability possibility of that this is what it is
you want to pass away in such that is that your dream so that you can be resurrected in such that which is a very, very high condition. Acaba, Maya coonan Abu Dhabi he was the closest that a person can be to their hub is when they are in the condition of such that you want to get close to Allah make sure you're such that is correct. Make sure your Salah is correct, but if your Salah is not even there, and if you take the ground like a chicken when you are eating Salah, you know I always say today we have two in 131 you have shampoo, you know two in one, you have this two in one, you have so many things to one people do semi Allah only man hamidah and they already halfway down to
such that two in one.
This is what's going on. If that is the case, then we're lucky we are paying a disservice to Allah subhanho wa Taala slow down, calm down, it might be the last time you can actually pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And don't think for a moment that I cannot go well, or you can go at any time. And so can I. This could be my last speech I couldn't leave in the middle of my speech. And so could you we've seen people drop we've seen people die.
This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Every one of you shall taste death. And
death is a door that everyone is going to go through, just prepare for it. There is no ways that you're not going to go through it. You don't need to become depressed about it. You just need to prepare for it because you're definitely going some go at an early age some go later on. Like I've always said ask those who are 6070 years old. They will tell you I remember my youth as though it was yesterday.
I remember things I did in my childhood is no it was yesterday. One flash, and I'm already 70 years old, believe me you have just another flash before you meet a lot more than another flash and that flash can be any length but it will still be a flash because no matter how old you are, if you are 3040 5020 whatever your age is, the past is just a flash think about it now. Everyone can think about it. The past is a flash love of Aqaba. So we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to make us conscious of this, at any given time, we should be prepared to go ask yourself when you are thinking of committing a sin.
If I die in this condition, what will happen? I'd like to give you an example. And this example has been cited by some of the scholars. And it's been repeated by a lot because it's a very, very sad example. And it's a true story.
They want a group of youngsters who are hooked onto pornography.
And that's the scourge of the age. It's the problem that has overtaken even people sometimes who appear to be religious and what it does to you. It reduces the value of the opposite sex in your head in mind, and it messes and tampers with your entire system that you do not get a kick out of anything permissible, but you get a kick out of that which is dirty and filthy love. So it's something that contaminates your thinking your eyes, your body, your respect for your spouse, and other women or other men. If you're a woman, and you think everyone else is as dirty as you are yet you are not or they are not should I say and it reduces the level of the whole community in your
eyes. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us from it. I've just mentioned the tip of the iceberg. So these youngsters they had a pay site that they were trying to log on to in order to get some pornographic material. And one of them says,
I will do this and I will pay and I'll forward it to you guys when the mail comes to me and forwarded to all you guys his friends. So he started a law protects us and our offspring.
So he started and he had the Subscribe for the year paid with his card, everything done. And when the emails used to come, he used to forward them to his friends and they used to get excited talk about it. Oh, this and that. And so on. You know what happened?
This man decided that it's very difficult to forward it because my group is becoming bigger friends everyone's now you know, looking up to me, Hey, where's your dogs you haven't sent your yet this material hasn't come through of late, you know, you haven't really sent it to me. So he says, hang on, let me put it on auto forward. So he's got it. As soon as it comes in, it forwards itself to 20 people 50 whatever his group was. and thereafter, Allah safeguard us. This young man passed away suddenly in a car accident. And all his friends were shocked his generous I was well attended, well attended by a lot of his friends. And they were crying and sobbing, they made promises to allow in
never going to commit the sin again. And you know what happened? They buried the man they cried, they went to his house, they said sorry, they did whatever they had to. They did whatever they had to and when they got back to their houses, and at some stage, they open their emails and they saw they saw a fresh email with pornographic material from the same man sent from his grave.
How did that happen? It was an auto forward, what's the password we don't know.
And this thing continued coming for the rest of the year. In fact, they tried to contact the
those whom they subscribe from and they said look, we have so many people we will not be able to do it. You will have to wait until the subscription is depleted. Is that what you want? People know you for forwarding pornographic material to them. And this is happening wholesale we need to talk about it. Is that your preparation for death? When you come to a law you say I did not forward. I did not follow the Koran. I did not follow the sentiments of the scholars but I follow the pornographic material and the dirtiest of jokes. And that is me. Here is your presentation to Allah you gave me life and I used it in order to do all this preparation. Is that what you want? Love The highlight of
your life. It's going to be yours on the day of the AMA.
Oh you believe be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala and each one of you should look into what you have prepared to present tomorrow. What have you prepared to forward tomorrow? What have you prepared in terms of your deeds, in terms of what you are going to be putting forth Allahu Akbar, be conscious of your maker. Indeed Allah is all knowing of what you do. He knows what you do to have Allah so prepare yourself. We need to prepare a presentation such that when we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala we say Allah for your sake I gave up adultery for your sake I gave up gambling for your sake, I refuse to go to the shisha lounges. For your sake. Do you know that an hour of shisha
smoking is worse than 40 packets of cigarettes and when the packs of cigarettes tell you smoking kills Subhan Allah then shisha murders
like it does. If smoking just kills you. The shisha murders you. It is suicide. That's what it is. You're killing yourself. You don't realize it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard our children. We have become so easygoing we look at things Wow. Cool, dude cool place. Let's go. So
Pamela are women Mashallah well dressed and you find them you know how I'm holding this microphone they holding the session?
blooming in another side, Allah, Allah protect us, Allah, Allah, it's terrible. You'd rather hold the microphone to give people a good word than to hold a shisha to kill the gift that Allah has given you. Are you waiting for lung cancer before you give up your smoking? Are you waiting for your health to completely deplete before you give up that bad habit? What if that's the case, Allah can do that to you if he loves you, because he wants you to give it up. But you'd rather give it up when you're healthy. We say to people that you know what if you give up that for the sake of Allah, whilst you're healthy, it is far more valuable than when you're forced to give it up because your
health is taken away. Although that is still a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So this is why, let's turn to Allah. Let's all promise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we will present the good deed
for those who believe.
hearts to tremble in the field of Allah subhanho wa Taala towards the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala for their hearts to soften up towards revelation that Allah has sent down. Has the time not come? What are you waiting for? My brother? My sister? What are you waiting for? To stop on your sin? What are you waiting for? To start reading your salon? What are you waiting for? To start obeying the instruction of Allah?
Are you waiting for a day? When your spouse dies? Or you are injured? Or you suffer a great loss? Or something happens to your child? Or for example, there is a disaster nearby lava, lava?
Is that what you're waiting for?
Are you waiting for the angels to come down? Are you waiting for Allah subhanho wa Taala? Are you waiting for your maker to come and talk to you while he has spoken to you through the poem? What is it that you're waiting for? We should realize and understand.
People have come to us we have been reminded every reminder that gets to our ears was not meant to miss our ears. It's come to my ears and yours. As a reminder, Allah is going to ask us I sent to you reminders tailor made for you your ears, I put it in your heart to go and attend. For example.
I put it in your mind to go to attain them at the same time you went What did you come back with? Did you just say it was a good talk?
Did you just say it was a good talk? Or did you really benefit from it? Did you come out a changed person? Did you promise Allah, Allah the scarf I've got on my head. Today I'm talking about the sisters. It's not going to be coming off some Hana man.
A few days ago, we had the world hijab day. I don't know if you've been following him. First off, where the non Muslims were donning the job in support of the job across the globe. That is a sign of the Muslim woman and in support of their freedom to do that. So the non Muslims were donning the job in support of this from amongst them, some accepted Islam, they felt the purity of it, they felt the purity of it. And they said wow, Subhana Allah, Allah has guided people, just through a piece of cloth towards the deen Subhana Allah and with us, we are given a gift of it, and we want to abandon it discarded, perhaps looked down upon it, perhaps considered something negative. And Allah says in
the very, very clearly what
if you are going to turn away, if you are going to turn away we will replace you with others who will not be like you, we will replace you with someone else. I come from Africa when we go into the rural areas, and we see the poorest of the poor of the Africans dressing in Egypt. And I tell myself so Panama, I'm sure these people are replacing someone in the Western world who's just discarded it or in the Arab world who has taken it out. And I always tell the sisters in Arabia, that if you have removed your job, for whatever reason, you should know Allah replaced you with 10 in Africa.
Allah does not need you for me. There are so many others. And this is why in the Quran in many places he tells us if you think that you are not
obey our instructions, we will bring others who will obey the instructions.
Going to turn away from the dean, Allah says he will bring forth he will bring forth a people who are whom he will love and they will love him. They will adopt the instruction of Allah Subhana.
Allah Allah, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to open our doors. So what is it that you have prepared for tomorrow? And what is it that you are waiting for?
How long are you going to continue committing the sin that you are committing my brother? How long are you going to continue committing the sin? You are committing my system?
How many more speeches do you want? Who would like to talk to you say your name will bring him up? I'm sure he has a message, at least online. today. We are so fortunate. The Globe has become the little village. You say who inspires you, you can google their name and listen to their speech.
That's how small it's become. But once you listen to it, remember allows me to ask you, I created facility for you that in your pocket. I gave you an apparatus whereby you could listen to any motivation from across the globe. You were listening to it regularly. But you did nothing about it. The only thing you said is wow, powerful speaker and good speech.
Is that great stuff. So we're going to go away today saying to have a lot of powerful talk, you know, and it was a good speech. But we haven't changed one each. Tomorrow morning. Sorry. We are snoring yet. Sunrise is so late to Panama. We ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to grant us understanding.
And we pray that Allah can really motivate us to do something, perhaps on our way home, we might hear news of someone else, having gone into the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And this is why we always say, death when we speak about it. It's not dooming people. No, not at all. I'm speaking about it today from a totally different angle to say just prepare for it. That's what we say, prepare for the day because when you have prepared something,
then insha Allah, Allah will look at that. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is looking for any excuse to go into paradise, and myself as well. We really need that paradise so desperately.
And the way to achieve it is to try to please Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Here we have a brother really, my heart has softened up hearing that news and information of someone coming to our function here this evening. Who's passed away a young man Subhana Allah, Allah grant him gentlemen.
My brothers and sisters, it's about time we tend to allow start learning the Quran, many of us are guilty and we repeat this every time many of us are guilty of being Muslim mean, we study stacks and stacks of books in order to have a qualification of this world. But we have not yet studied the Quran, the word of Allah subhana wa Jalla we don't even know what he says, We have no clue, no idea. Perhaps we might be able to recite it, but we don't even know what it means. And that's the word of Abbas.
Allah subhana wa Jalla grandison understanding.
Like we say we know the life or the lives of so many people around us, but we don't know the lives of the Sahaba or the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Melbourne subhanho wa Taala protect us from disease and goodness, my brothers and sisters, we are living in an age of facade, facade, chaos, corruption around us. The environment is not extremely friendly. It is quite hostile in the sense that there are a lot of dirty things happening. People are engrossed and engaged in so much in terms of sin, adultery, hooked on to that which is bad, you know, gambling off their monies, throwing it out, oppressing their family members, oppressing one another making life tough for one another, not realizing that this is not how we're going to achieve the pleasure of a man to
fulfill your duty unto Allah subhanho wa Taala and fulfill it thoroughly and correctly. So Panama, try your best. Whenever you have faltered, turn back to Allah quickly. That's a sign of a movement. It's a sign of a movement even when you turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala immediately and quickly. It really is a sign of a belief in
omega differences. I used to repeat the statements whenever you concentrate
So we thank Allah subhana wa Jalla for gathering us here this evening. And we really I will not keep you waiting much longer the brothers and sisters who are perhaps standing in the back of it, and I'm overwhelmed myself to see such numbers here. At the same time the message I have is a message to say follow what Allah has sent down and follow the path of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam as strictly as you can and as best as you can, and at the same time that will help you prepare,
inshallah, the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Tell yourself, what is it that I have prepared, you know, Hamas, Allah Allah,
He will be waiting for us on what is known as the how upon
and he will be recognizing us.
The question I have is, if he were if he were, if he were to see me right now, would he recognize me as a member of his own man? That's a question.
Would he recognize you as a member of his own money?
That's a question. You can answer that. And the answer of that you had allow will help you change your life. This is what it is. Don't we believe that as follows.
You know, he is the highest the best of the most honored He is the One whose intercession we beg from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We say that we love him. We are so fortunate to be from his own man. We say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Allah blesses us 10 times in return.
we sometimes could not be bothered about what he came with in terms of the message. We couldn't be balling. And if a girl from down the street were to tell you something, he would jump. It's a fact. Sometimes his oldest people get they've got their little closets, which don't have skeletons anymore. They've got fresh bodies. I always tell people a skeleton is not at least it's dead. It's gone. You know, it's just dead, which means it's a mark that was left behind. But we were fresh bodies hiding in the closet in reality.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
we can do away with all that. Remember, sin brings about a lot of stress. If you are depressed, if you are sad, if you have a lot of tension, Could your sins tend to start reading the Quran?
Indeed, the calmness of the heart is achieved through the words of the Quran, the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala primarily refers to the man that has a college degree, the best of all liquid is the Quran, it is a reminder. So if you were to read the Quran, Allah and try and understand it, it will come and soothe your heart and your mind to Allah. But the difficulty is, when we engage in sin, it tightens our shoulders. It makes us stress, we worried about who's going to see my mobile phone, if that's the case, you're doing something wrong. We worried about who's watching my back, if that's the case, you're doing something wrong. Why worry about this and that when souhan Allah,
Allah has made things so easy for you. He laid rules and regulations. And he says you follow this path, you won't have to stress you will be happy content. Concentrate on your wife, your husband, for example, your children, your family members, concentrate on them, work on them, making them happy, at least you will die being known as a man who tried his best to be the best father, the best husband or a woman who was the best wife, the best mother and so on, rather than people saying, This guy should have died 10 years ago, please by now I could have had three children from the other day.
This is the attitude of the people today. This is what's going on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us why because each one is living a life beyond what he is supposed to be living in terms of sin.
You are supposed to be doing this Allah blessed you with such a good situation in your home but you're not happy, because you cannot see because your eyes are fixed on sin
is that how are we going to prepare for this? So this is why it is described as Cassius dunia. One who has lost the dunya because they will not happy and they've lost the archaea because whatever they did in the dunya was not good enough. Allahu Akbar.
Now that we've spoken about this, it's very important for us to touch on the beauty of the issue of forgiveness, love.
Allies most forgiving, Most Merciful no matter what you've done. You're not useless. No matter what has happened in the past. It can be wiped out within a split moment of a genuine and sincere turning to repentance or love. What I've done is wrong. Forgive me. I will
will not do it again I admitted and I regret it wiped out completely gone. A Talib O'Meara Lambie commanded ambala. One who repents from sin is equivalent to the one who's got no sin. Nothing. If you read the moron Let me read for you two verses one Allah says, One Melina Illa
ami, Allah is promising paradise to those who have repented from immorality, adultery, and that which was unacceptable socially. Allah says those who have committed Felicia, Felicia is immorality. Sexual misbehavior is also included in the term fashion. Those who have involved in fashion and who have oppressed themselves by committing sin in any way. If they are, if they remind me or remember or remind themselves of a law, or they are reminded of Allah, they remember Allah and immediately turned to him and say Allah, what we just did was wrong. We don't want to repeat it and we engage in Toba. Allah says for those type of people, we will forgive them and we will grant them places in
paradise that will be reserved for them.
So this is giving good hope to those who might have had the past. Allah says, not only the skeletons in your closet, the whole closet will disappear. Where's your closet? I don't have one. I've got a clean slate.
I engaged in Toba. I asked the last forgiveness. The Quran says those who committed the morality, we still have a space for them in paradise on condition that they tend to ask just turn to Allah. Imagine if you've got a debt of a million pounds to pay someone and you're struggling in life because Subhanallah
You don't know how you're going to pay that back.
And suddenly the man comes to you and says Do you know the million pounds says yes. Just say I'm sorry, not forgive you.
If you're too arrogant to say no, wait, why must I say I'm sorry, I'm not sorry. Well then pay
then pay. But if you put your tail between your legs and say I'm sorry, I really am very sorry, this is like no longer you don't have to pay the million anymore. I am sorry I will delete 1 million pounds will lie. If you tell that to Allah it will delete that which is more than a million pounds.
Because the Quran says those who will be thrown into Hellfire if they had the entire world full of material items. And they were to seek that as the companion in order to be let loose from from jahannam it will not be accepted from them even if it was double whammy. Leah steady will be him in
a minute. He won't be accepted from them. So what's that? That's like billions and trillions and zillions and whatever else. So Pamela,
quadrillions and Pinta aliens i think you know where I got that from doji coming from Zimbabwe Mashallah, we went through all the figures in our currency
up to when we got to decision we have actually looked to non aliens You know, that's a bigger going check if someone invited me from the legions and I thought to myself, wow, is that connected to the million by any chance? I don't think so.
Amazing. Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us no matter what you've done, say I am sorry, properly. How do you do it? You've just got four little conditions. admit your fault, regret. ask Allah forgiveness and promise not to do it again, wiped out completely gone, deleted, thrown out forgotten, nobody will ever raise it again. You won't be embarrassed by never. So that was one verse I listen to the other verse of the mercy of Allah. Allah subhana wa Jalla speaks of Zina.
He speaks of adultery. And he speaks of various other sins. And immediately after that, he says, Those people will be punished, they will taste the punishment and the punishment of Allah is connected to this world as well as the next. So don't think you get away with it. There's only one way of getting away and that is turn to Allah repent, say Allah, what we did was wrong. You know, sometimes we have our weddings, and a wedding. If you think about it carefully. It's a sacred union. It is such a sacred union, that Subhanallah we should never be disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala when it comes to the functions connected to our wedding,
But that's exactly where we disobey Him. So later on your children don't listen to you, nothing happens. Everything's going well, sister, can I ask you, my brother when you got married? How was the function?
Well, they were naked women, there was music everyone was there things were happening. We enjoyed ourselves, well, you're now tasting the result of that.
So they look at me and they say, What are you trying to tell me the suffering? I have my children 16 years down the line is because of how I got married, say, Have you ever sought forgiveness from Allah for what you did on that day? When you promote advice and sin, and you allow young girls to come semi dressed or not dressed at all? And when you allow this to happen, if you have not engaged in tober, then yes, you pay for it. Because Allah says you will pay you don't get away with things.
You do a little droplet mustard seeds Wait where the goodness you see it. Mustard Seeds Wait where the bad you will see it, but there is a way of deleting it. But I did not engage in Toba because to me it was the norm.
So recognize that what you're doing is wrong. You know, we speak about shisha clubs, for example.
And people look at you and they say, what's wrong with that everybody's doing it. Well, if that's the case, hang on. time will come when you pay payment time. But if you believe what I'm doing is wrong. It will give you the opportunity to engage in Toba. If you repent you then what payment is dead. Allah says, immediately after making mention of adultery and various other sins of immorality and so on. He says they will be punished in law in law is an exception.
Allah is making an exception he says in
those who repent and do good deeds thereafter, Allah says we will convert the bad they did into good on the right side of the scale, and we will then grant them obviously paradise. That's as a result towards the end of the verses. Allah says he has prepared a special special place in paradise for such people
who repentant and difficulties after that. You imagine, Allah says he converts the bad into good. It's like saying, you owed me a million say I am sorry. And I will give you another million images.
What it is, so where are we? What are we doing?
Are we prepared to quit for the sake of Allah? No, sometimes.
Allah subhana wa Taala says that there's so many examples we have around us that will lie it is shocking.
But my brothers and sisters never display just engage in a state of art. Good news, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says good news, too, he on whose page a lot of repentance is found. You have your pages I have mine.
Everything is written. If on my page are yours much dependence is found good news to you. You think Allah is going to punish you when every day you sincerely repented and the times 100 times a day you say Allah forgive me, you're conscious of it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors my brothers and sisters I've spoken enough. And it shall I hope and pray that I am motivated by my by what I've said. And I hope and pray that we can all be motivated to fulfill our Salah to dress appropriately to clean our hearts to clean our acts of worship, they should be solely for the pleasure of Allah and for Allah subhanho wa Taala to quit that which is unacceptable in Islam. It is important that we
know this man Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us assignment of fulfilling the respect of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to acknowledge that he was the one who was sent to teach us how to worship Allah. So I cannot come up with an act of worship that he did not teach because it's an insult to him. Because it says No, I'm saying you came you taught us but you didn't teach us everything. There's something that I know that's still much better which you forgot 1000 Allah, that's an insult. He's the Quran reveals a Yama to lacantina yo day yo this day we have perfected your deen so don't add into that deal. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah help us not to insult Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no to insult Allah subhanho wa Taala and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us respect ourselves. We do Salah so at least you have a chance of perhaps meeting Allah in the condition of Salah to fulfill your recitation of the Quran inshallah you may die while reading the Quran.
Have the meeting of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us, may he help us quit our sins and may He make us from those who are motivated. Remember, a one hour lecture cannot really do much more than motivation. But if you get hold of it within 48 hours if you do something about it, it will last. But studies have shown that if you are motivated and within 48 hours you have not done something about it. Perhaps it will just go back as a piece in memory, which nothing happened about so let's act immediately. Change Your Life. Start frequenting the masjid start developing a link with those who teach the deen learn put into practice, make an effort to do things
inshallah Allah will save you and engage in lots of Toba Don't lose hope you've made mistakes in the past. You've had all you know, deeds you've done you're not proud of perhaps we spoke about weddings that might have happened in the wrong way. Now when they happen in your families to try and make sure they happen correctly, because it is such an act of worship. It is so blessing. It's a sacred union, sacred union through which generations are going to flow in the obedience of Allah. How can you have a function that is in the disobedience of Allah for such a sacred union?
We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us help one another to to worship Allah. Sometimes your own family puts pressure on you because you want to put on a scarf on your head. Sometimes you find your own relatives want to tell you how can you have a function that is separated? Come on. We live in here in the first world and Allah we're going to be living in the first grave as well. Now let's head on over to Allah protect us and grant us gentlemen
