00:00:19--> 00:00:51

Also coming up when it was coming into May we praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah because he made us, He created us. He is in control of our lives. He provides for us. He has nurtured he has given. He grants cure to us, and He is who we are going to return to. So we always praise Him upon all conditions. Alhamdulillah Allah,

00:00:52--> 00:01:01

we praise Allah upon all conditions. And we send blessings and salutations upon hundreds of Allah Allah.

00:01:02--> 00:01:45

Because Allah chose him. When Allah chose him to be the best of creation, the most high of all the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala we cannot become jealous when Allah chooses someone above us. You are not nebby or prophet, I am not nebby or prophet, Allah chose who is the Abbey, we have to acknowledge that when Allah raises one above the other, we must acknowledge it. Because shavonne he believes his crime at the beginning was he said,

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

Johnny mean

00:01:56--> 00:02:50

we, he said, I am better than Adam, You created me from fire, you created him from soil, so I am better than him. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says, because he denied that we raised them above him, so we trust him. So if you and I want to be protected from Chris, we need to acknowledge the favor that Allah has bestowed upon some above the others, primarily, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the highest, he is the most noble of all the prophets of Allah, the greatest of all the creation of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, that is why we send blessings and salutations upon him. It is the instruction of Allah. Allah, Allah,

00:02:52--> 00:02:52

Allah.

00:02:55--> 00:03:16

Whoever, sins, blessings, and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one time Allah said, He will send He will bless them 10 times. So if I want to blessings I need to send blessings upon Mohammed Salah.

00:03:18--> 00:03:22

Now, why am I giving you this introduction?

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

Number one,

00:03:25--> 00:03:37

I said Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah II think Allah upon all conditions. I want to tell you it is my first trip to Indonesia.

00:03:39--> 00:03:46

It is my first time I'm coming to Jakarta. But insha Allah if Allah wants it's not my last time.

00:03:49--> 00:04:00

It is the first Masjid where when I say a salaam aleikum, everybody replied, so loudly normally replies. Okay, so I will remember Indonesia, because of the beautiful reply.

00:04:02--> 00:04:30

Allah do lucam Allah amin either fall to the habit after Salah byakko the prophets Allah says Should I not show you something if you were going to practice upon it? It would increase your love of spread the Salaam between you it's a very deep explanation but also a salaam aleikum wa alayhi wa sallam is included in that explanation. So congratulations to you 10 out of 10

00:04:35--> 00:04:49

but it is my first trip, unfortunately and very Unfortunately, it is immediately after and during some great challenges which your country is going through.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

You know, there was the situation in Lombok a few weeks ago. May Allah protect us all. I mean, I mean, may Allah make it easy for those who are

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

struggling. I mean, May Allah help rebuild that place? I mean, may Allah strengthen the Eman of those who are survivors. I mean, it's a very tough time, we need to make dua for strengthening of email

00:05:17--> 00:05:20

melodrama, to those who have lost their lives. I mean,

00:05:22--> 00:05:29

after that we had without expectation, Sulawesi they call it pallu. Am I right?

00:05:31--> 00:06:10

There was an earthquake which resulted in a tsunami and there was a more of the earthquake and then volcanic eruptions, one after the other, someone asks us, is this the punishment of Allah? I will tell you, you cannot say it is the punishment of Allah because some people died in Salah. Is that a punishment? No, it is the Wrath of Allah. If you died in the right condition, you are going to die. Just like I will die. The winner is the one not the one who stays alive forever, but the one whom when he died, Allah was happy with him.

00:06:12--> 00:07:03

So if you die, while Allah is happy with you, whether it was a volcano, whether it was an earthquake, whether it was a tsunami, whether it was cancer, whether it was an car accident, whether it was a plane crash, if Allah is happy with you forget about how you died, it is the condition upon which you die. So if someone tells you there is an arm of Allah, they do not know from Allah, what it was jabril and his salon did not come to them to tell them that this is other debris in agony Salam did not come to them with ye and revelation from the sky to tell them that this is the punishment of Allah. How many of us say the video clip of the people inshallah, when the earthquake

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

happened? Do you think that was the era

00:07:08--> 00:07:09

one man can

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

stone?

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

Allah says, Allah will not punish the people for as long as Mohammed Salah

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

was in their best.

00:07:31--> 00:07:37

And then Allah says Allah will not punish the people while they are seeking the forgiveness of Allah.

00:07:39--> 00:07:58

So Allah is a great ibadah of Allah while we are in Santa, if something happens, it is not the punishment of Allah. It is the LACMA of Allah. I want to ask you a question. How many of you would like to die inshallah put up your hand

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

Okay, put it down. I learned one thing shift you don't need to.

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

They understood what I said.

00:08:16--> 00:08:20

We want to die in Sala so with your insula, if you die was it?

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

What was it?

00:08:25--> 00:08:45

A surgeon. So why do we find people saying that when a natural disaster comes, volcano comes sooner? It is either it can be yes or who for the one who is far from Allah. If you die while you are committing a sin, then there is no good news.

00:08:46--> 00:09:01

If you die while you are committing a sin, then we cannot say that this is the rahima of Allah. Why? Because your condition while you were dying was not a good one. May Allah give us a good death?

00:09:02--> 00:09:04

Check, I promise you.

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

Okay, so at hamdulillah

00:09:12--> 00:09:43

I wanted to start like this because we are going to talk of love between us but it's important. I'm coming to Indonesia The first time I cannot ignore the fact that you have gone through a lot. When you go through one and another and a third and a fourth. It is not easy. Some people that a man can shake if they are not so strong. It is our duty to say Don't worry, my brother, don't worry, my sister, we all go through different problems. Avon aji

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

de la dee, the bigger the test, the bigger the reward. The big reward is with the big test. When you answer one plus one equals two, you get a small certificate, right small certificate, but when you answer a huge

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

Question that takes you one hour to answer you will get the university degree. Why? Because the big certificate, big question. The same with Allah, He tells you

00:10:13--> 00:10:18

through the lips of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Allah.

00:10:21--> 00:11:09

When a man loves you, he tests you. Life is all about tests. All of us seated here, all of the sisters who are here, all of the those who are watching those who will see this later, we all have problems in our lives, all of us, the richest and the poorest. We all have problems, because that is the nature of life. Life is all about problems. But when you have a man, Allah makes it easy for you to go through the problem. When you don't have a man, Allah subhanho wa Taala is not there to help you through your problem. So you become depressed. How many of us when we have a big problem, after that, we make meaning we come to Allah.

00:11:10--> 00:11:12

We start Salah.

00:11:13--> 00:12:06

Imagine if there is a person who is sinful. And something happened, maybe a tsunami, maybe an earthquake, maybe a volcano, maybe a sickness, maybe something big happened to them. And they after that they came to the masjid, they cry, they make Toba they turn to Allah. That was the rush ma Allah He loves you so much that he did something to you, which brought you back to him before you died. Allahu Akbar. It is the gift of Allah. Don't think it is bad for you. It is good for you. So the Hadith says the bigger the test, the bigger the reward. My brothers and sisters of Indonesia your tests are very, very big. So the reward inshallah will be even bigger by the end of the month.

00:12:08--> 00:12:33

We in from my part of the country of the world, in southern Africa, Mashallah. We have tried our best whenever we hear something happened in Indonesia, or LA he, some of our brothers and sisters, they contribute and they send whatever they can to this country. But I have learned something today.

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

All of us sitting here in Jakarta.

00:12:38--> 00:13:25

If we take out a little bit from our pocket a little bit from our pocket, it's enough for the people who are struggling. Because we are so many number if today in this Masjid. Mashallah, we are in a large number. I was expecting 10 or 20 people. For hamdulillah it's Allah I told the sheriff I said, Well, we don't come for numbers. He who comes from numbers did not come from a law. We are here for a lot. The message I don't want you to become close to me. No, I am not a politician. Politicians, they call towards themselves. Vote for me, vote for me, vote for me, no vote for Allah. I am here not for me, I am here for Allah, I am going to tell you don't turn to me turn to Allah. So even if

00:13:25--> 00:13:44

there are two people or five or 10, I'm a happy man. But we see large numbers. If every one of us have to take out a small amount, we can sort out the rebuilding of those areas that are affected by all the disasters that are affected, may Allah make it easy for us.

00:13:47--> 00:13:53

So don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah, Allah. Goodness, we love one another for the sake of Allah.

00:13:54--> 00:13:58

I lived in Madina munawwara for many years as a student,

00:13:59--> 00:14:09

and I used to see the judge coming in from Indonesia, calm, who relaxed, they can sit for 10 hours, and they're still smiling.

00:14:11--> 00:14:54

And I used to be amazed because from other countries, they are a little bit hot. I don't want to mention names because when you say good things, you can say the name. When you say bad things. Don't say the name just leave it. But it's a good lesson. And today I'm happy to sit here. You know what, I'm learning something. It is hot. It is human. It is tough. It is difficult for me so panela it's a learning experience to see people still sitting and calm and relaxed. I was sending a message to one of my team members outside saying I make do I want the sisters who came here today. May Allah bless them with gentlemen.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

The reason is they're sitting outside in the heat

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

In the tent,

00:15:03--> 00:15:32

and it's hot, and they are sweating, and sweltering, why did they come? They came for Allah, they want the calmness of the heart, they want to get close to Allah. This is solidarity. This is the love for the sake of Allah. How do you know me? If you know me? Can I tell you? You only know me because I talk about Allah and Islam and Islam.

00:15:34--> 00:15:49

That's why you that's why some of you who know me are here today. If I was anything else, you would not know me. And I would not know you. So that is solidarity. What brings me together with you?

00:15:56--> 00:16:31

That's what brings me and you together. That is the Shahada. The Hadith says the power of the Shahada is such that if you were to put it on one side of the scale, and you were to put 99 files of sins, on the other side of the scale, that La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam will be heavier and stronger than the 99 files full of sin. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us some gentlemen.

00:16:32--> 00:16:50

So my sisters, congratulations to you. If I had it in my hand, I would mean extending this place and placing freezing cold air conditioned so that we can sit here in comfort, but I want to tell you, when you have made a greater effort, Allah gives you a greater reward.

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

May Allah reward us? I mean, no, let me mention the second thing. So that's why I started off by saying,

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

praise Allah, every condition, you are going through hardship Alhamdulillah, you are going to ease Alhamdulillah to not let your ears drive you away from Allah, just like you should not let your difficulty drive you away from Allah. Some people when they are very rich, very powerful, very high, they turn away from Allah because they forget Allah. Some people when they are very poor, when they are suffering, when they have a sickness, when the sickness is not going, they turn away from Allah. Allah says, Don't do that, whether you are sick or healthy. Praise Allah, whether you are rich or poor, praise Allah, whether you are powerful or not praise Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah. The

00:17:50--> 00:18:03

winner is not the one who had or did not have in the dunya. The winner is the one who plays Allah so that they can have the year after genital victims.

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

Secondly,

00:18:09--> 00:18:13

we have two things that we need to remember.

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

And

00:18:15--> 00:18:27

there are two things in existence, there is the creator and the creator take whatever is not the Creator is the creature of the Creator.

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

Right? So

00:18:30--> 00:18:36

I have two duties. One is Coca Cola, and one is Coca Cola.

00:18:37--> 00:18:50

Remember this, I have two duties, the rights of Allah, and I have the rights for everyone else. Why do I have the rights for everyone else? I can tell you why.

00:18:52--> 00:19:33

Because everyone else was made by the same Allah who made me if I'm think I am important, because Allah made me they think they are important because Allah made them. And we are all important because Allah made us I'm not the only one who is important. If Allah did not want me or you, he would not make you and He will not make me but he wanted you and he wanted me even if I am different from you, in race in color in beneath, I need to fulfill your rights. I will get to that in a few minutes. But let me start off by speaking about

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

the right of Allah number one, and

00:19:40--> 00:19:55

we know that we worship Allah and we worship Him alone, and we don't render any act of worship for anyone besides Allah. Because when we say la ilaha illa Allah What is the meaning? It means

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

that we have been in Allah there is no one word.

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

We have worship recites above, and is the answer that is the translation. So if I see there is no one worthy of worship besides a lot, why should I worship someone besides

00:20:14--> 00:20:30

that is something very important. Remember that it is the primary duty unto Allah. Secondly, part of your duty unto Allah is to follow the messengers who Allah sent to you to guide you to meet to guide me.

00:20:31--> 00:21:03

If the president of this country sends you a message, you will be so happy Mashallah. And the messenger who comes you will honor Him, you will respect him, but you will take the message and you will read it and you take it seriously. You are a VIP. So the President sent you a message Masha Allah, Allah is the Creator of entire creation, he sent you a message, you need to respect the messenger and you need to adopt the message.

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

So remember that when I worship Allah, I will do it the way he

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

taught me in a nice beautiful way. I will listen and I will adopt. That is my right to Allah. Now let's talk about my right to everyone else.

00:21:23--> 00:21:26

Allah created Peace. Peace

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

is a big a good article. Where Hello?

00:21:32--> 00:21:35

Is it not? Hello? What is it? Is it?

00:21:41--> 00:21:56

If it is how did you go out and torture all the pigs in the billion? Did he say that go out and the pigs harm them kill them? Did Allah say that? No. Allah said don't eat it.

00:21:57--> 00:22:00

Don't trade it. Leave it out.

00:22:02--> 00:22:18

You know, dogs for example. Let's give you even another example of snakes. Lions, I come from a country full of lions. I come from a country full of elephants. Maybe we have one of the largest population of elephants in the world in my country.

00:22:19--> 00:22:25

It's possible and it's a big big people right? Mashallah.

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

There is a reason

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

a libido these animals, there is a reason

00:22:37--> 00:22:42

I want to teach you something about love and solidarity. Listen carefully.

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

You know a dog

00:22:46--> 00:23:03

we are you are only allowed to have a dog for certain reasons. If it is a guard dog, if it is a farming dog, if it is a blind patch dog few reasons. If it is a farming dog, you can

00:23:04--> 00:23:24

few reasons but your relationship with the dog as a Muslim is limited. It is covered by something right? Which means if the dog touches you, there is a ruling. If it leaves you there is another ruling and so on. That's not my topic. But it's a difficult situation. However.

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

Do you know there is a hottie

00:23:28--> 00:23:32

the province says there was a man who was very thirsty

00:23:33--> 00:23:46

in the desert, hot, maybe more than this day. One day. He was very thirsty. He was working in the desert. He needed water. There was no water. Suddenly he saw a well.

00:23:47--> 00:23:58

When he saw the well. He looked there was no bucket, no bucket. So what did he have to do? He had to go in November. So he went down. It's dangerous.

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

To go down the world is dangerous. He went down well.

00:24:05--> 00:24:14

He drank water and he came back up. When he came back up. He wanted to maybe go home whatever it was he was going

00:24:15--> 00:24:19

as he came out and he was deciding to continue for either.

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

He saw a dog

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

What did he see?

00:24:31--> 00:24:37

He saw a dog. When you see a dog in the street. What do you do? Run away

00:24:39--> 00:24:42

before the dog says woof woof. You are

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

right.

00:24:45--> 00:24:50

Doggy dog. You may stop when you run away right out of the

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

way. He saw the dog.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

It was a hot day he saw the dog sniffing into the dust and the sand

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

In order to try and leak a little bit of liquid find something because it was very, very thirsty. So he said,

00:25:12--> 00:25:23

This dog is very thirsty, as thirsty as I was before I went down to drink my water. Let me go back down

00:25:24--> 00:25:31

to fetch water. I told you it was dangerous. It's dangerous to go inside the well. If I tell you, brother, here's about go inside.

00:25:33--> 00:25:52

Right? You cannot go down the well. It's dangerous. He No one told him to go. No one was watching him. from human beings. No one was watching you. He said let me go down in the world. He went down in the well. There was no bucket. What to do. What can I do? There is no bucket.

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

He took his shoe out.

00:25:57--> 00:26:07

It is like a Nether sock that they were he took it out. He filled it with water. Can I ask you brother? Can you please go and fill your shoe with water and bring it back?

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

No, I won't.

00:26:12--> 00:26:13

Will you fill your shoes

00:26:15--> 00:26:16

for a dog?

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

Not even for a human being. So

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

maybe not even for your wife.

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

Fill your shoes.

00:26:29--> 00:26:33

He filled his shoe with water. He brought it back up.

00:26:34--> 00:26:43

He went near to the dog. He made the dog drink the water. Allahu Akbar, who was watching Allah.

00:26:45--> 00:26:54

Allah says, I love the compassion of this man so much that I forgive the sins he can go to jail.

00:26:57--> 00:27:05

Because he was showing compassion to a creature of Allah, which was a dog.

00:27:06--> 00:27:31

There was no doubt about his media. His media was to please Allah. That's why there was a dog. If there was a pretty girl, maybe the media was going to be faulty. Right? If there was a rich man, maybe the Nia was going to be a problem. If there was a bird or a peacock, maybe people were going to say,

00:27:32--> 00:28:06

go get water. No, there was a dog. You and I would run away from the dog. The man went down and he got the water he came back. I forget. I want to tell you the most powerful point about solidarity. If Allah gave gentleness to a man who showed compassion to a dog, what do you think Allah will give you an eye if we show compassion to another human being?

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

You understand what I'm saying?

00:28:11--> 00:28:14

If you show compassion to a dog,

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

if you show compassion to a human being, you will get more than that.

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

You want the mercy of Allah.

00:28:23--> 00:28:30

You need to understand what your relationship should be with the creatures of Allah. Why did you

00:28:33--> 00:28:52

Why did he make me because I will get through my luck, my character. Some people make a very big mistake. They think that Taiyaki is only Coca Cola, the rights of Allah so David Salah five times a day.

00:28:54--> 00:29:03

They will so fast, every other day they are fasting. They are reading Quran every other day, every day.

00:29:05--> 00:29:25

But the mouth is bad, they swear they cheat, they deceive. They abuse they are longer than you Mel treat. The heart is dirty because they are jealous. They have they have a trip, they have enmity, they have envy, the heart is dirty.

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

How can you go to Japan?

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

When you have washed out one whole chunk of the deal? Islam is not only

00:29:38--> 00:29:44

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked the question by the Sahaba.

00:29:45--> 00:29:55

They asked him on messenger peace be upon him. Please tell us what are the qualities of the people who are going to go to

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

those people in general what are the

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

qualities that will make him go into gentlemen. He said Tacoma he was coo coo coo, coo coo coo coo coo coo coo Allah He the consciousness of Allah taqwa piety.

00:30:16--> 00:30:17

Yeah you

00:30:20--> 00:30:28

boomers sodomy. Oh you who believe. Be conscious of Allah, how many times do we hear it

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

be conscious of Allah but together with the consciousness of Allah develop your

00:30:36--> 00:30:46

develop your character, your conduct, your compassion, your love for one another, don't miss your heart up with with eight

00:30:48--> 00:31:36

we will be different I will not agree with you on 100 points, maybe 90 points 10 points maybe I disagree. Does that mean I was hate you and fight you and kill you and harm you and to everything? No, I will disagree. Maybe we can discuss it. Maybe I can present to you what I agree and you can present to me what you are convinced by we might come to agree on 95 out of 105 more, maybe we might not. So does it mean that you must start hating and hurting and abusing and dis uniting my brothers my sisters today in the Muslim world and Alhamdulillah I have traveled quite a lot. The destruction is not from outside, it is from inside.

00:31:38--> 00:31:46

The destruction is not from outside it is from inside shaper knows that the numbers are too big.

00:31:47--> 00:32:20

So he wants to make us divide. You have one group you become two from to become four from four you become 14 from 14 you become 400 from 400 to become 4000 different groups, each one is falling to his own person, that person they are no longer according to Allah. We are calling to a small group or organization that we belong to. That's a man who studies Bible study. That's it. He's the only one who has the key to gentlemen, the others they have a fake key.

00:32:21--> 00:32:27

My brothers that is the truth. People think that way. But it's wrong thinking wrong thinking.

00:32:29--> 00:32:36

This one says that one is not going to gender that one says the other ones are not going to gender all of them say those

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

then gender will be empty.

00:32:41--> 00:32:43

Who is going to go to gender?

00:32:45--> 00:32:50

I want to tell you the agenda is not yours or mine. It is Allah.

00:32:53--> 00:32:56

So Allah is Rahim, Allah

00:32:58--> 00:33:06

Subhana Allah, worship Allah alone, you will see what will happen. You will be surprised when you go to China.

00:33:07--> 00:33:10

What is this guy doing here? I didn't think he was going to make it here.

00:33:14--> 00:33:18

You will be surprised to see lots of people in general for those

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

of us

00:33:23--> 00:33:39

learn to love one another for the sake of Allah show compassion, reach out to the elderly, the old, don't worry, look, I want to tell you in Islam there is something known as a cuckoo jar. You know what is the Jar Jar means your neighbor Gian.

00:33:41--> 00:33:59

Allah tells you you have to fulfill the light of your neighbor, you must be a good neighbor, no disturbance, no harm, you must help you must reach out when you cook sometimes you must cook more send it to your neighbor, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. lazada degree do you see even Jerry?

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

No You will be the prophets of Allah services. gibreel at a Salam told me so many times about being careful about the rights of the neighbor until I thought maybe he will make him an heir when we die.

00:34:22--> 00:34:27

So the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, even if your neighbor is a non

00:34:28--> 00:34:29

Muslim,

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

even if your neighbor is a non Muslim, he has the rights of the neighbor. If he is a Muslim, he has more rights. If he's a Muslim and a relative, he has even more rights, but they all have rights. Okay.

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

So if your neighbor who is not a Muslim has the rights

00:34:54--> 00:34:58

How come we mean who say Allah, we say Mohammed

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

We have so much of hatred with each other like we have no rights for each other. Tell us you are going to turn going to Johanna going to turn the last time someone said they were going to turn up. I told the Brother, don't worry. It's only those who are who know who is there.

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

He thinks

00:35:20--> 00:35:25

that's why he said, it's like a young man, he comes to you. He says, what were you doing in the nightclub?

00:35:27--> 00:35:28

How do you know? What are you doing?

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

So May Allah forgive us and

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

guide us one morning, my beloved brothers and my sisters. The solidarity that we so desperately need is something that we cannot do without we have to have it.

00:35:48--> 00:35:56

You know, when there is a disaster, outside car accident, may Allah protect us. Let's look at anything.

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

When you see something like that happening, as a human being, it's your duty to try to help. You don't say, brother, how much money do you have?

00:36:13--> 00:36:17

No one said leave him don't help him. Is that what Islam teaches?

00:36:18--> 00:36:25

Oh, that man is not very light in color in him. He's very dark. It's okay. He can die. Is that what Islam teaches you?

00:36:27--> 00:36:33

Or he comes from the south. We come from the north. We cannot marry each other. So leave him let him die.

00:36:36--> 00:36:37

Right?

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

This is wrong.

00:36:41--> 00:36:51

When someone is struggling, even an animal that is suffering we supposed to help. I asked you a question. If a man is drowning, and the dog is drowning, who do you save?

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

Who do you say

00:36:56--> 00:36:56

both.

00:36:59--> 00:37:13

But we'll start with the man. That is Islam. Islam says if the man is dying or drowning and the dog is drowning, your intention is to save both but you start with the man. Once he's okay you go for the dog.

00:37:15--> 00:37:19

You will have a reward. So we are taught to care for animals.

00:37:21--> 00:37:25

You cannot harm an animal one lady Abby.

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

She was

00:37:30--> 00:37:41

entered into Hellfire because of her now treatment of attacked. She was abusing the text. So she Allah says she will go into hellfire.

00:37:43--> 00:38:26

What about us, we abuse the people around us We swear those who work for us we swear our family members our in laws, our children, our parents, our brothers, our sisters, whoever else we swear them in the masjid in another machine. So on my brother This is a Masjid. It is the house of Allah, the masjid wherever else across the road, there might be a Masjid. It is also the house of Allah. If I don't agree with five factors of theirs, and they don't agree with five factors of mind, it doesn't make us those who should hate each other to the degree that we don't fulfill the rights of each other. shavon wants us to dislike each other so that your mind is gone. What our three year old

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

was

00:38:45--> 00:38:53

do not dispute amongst one another because if you do that you are going to lose your mind your power as an owner will be gone.

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

It will be gone. You will be unsuccessful. unofficial means to be unsuccessful.

00:39:03--> 00:39:08

Allah says wants you to bear patience, because Allah is with those who bear patience.

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

If you have a problem with your son, what will you do? You will try to talk to him, you will explain to him you will sit with him you will make to alpha him, you will convince him you will do whatever you can to try and convince him and help him and talk to you. Well, we are all brothers and sisters and sons and daughters of one another. That's what we are.

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

compassion.

00:39:33--> 00:39:43

Allah made us differently. What convinces me totally might not convince you at all. Something else has convinced you completely Marlena is

00:39:44--> 00:39:50

my duty is to convey what I believe clearly. You might want to convey what you believe clearly.

00:39:52--> 00:39:57

You know what, at the end of the day, Allah has kept a day of judgment to judge the people.

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

Don't

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

Confused?

00:40:02--> 00:40:12

Don't confuse demo with anything else. That means to call people to goodness, that work is not done via hatred.

00:40:13--> 00:40:24

Never. When Allah sent Musa alayhis salam who was the best of the time to the federal shutdown, who was the worst of the time?

00:40:37--> 00:40:50

Go to them go to frown. Speak to him calm, soft words. Speak to him with soft, polite, beautiful words. Maybe he will remember and come back.

00:40:53--> 00:40:57

When you give that away to someone, are you better than Mussa? Are you better than

00:41:00--> 00:41:04

the man you are talking to? A woman? Can they be worse than three out?

00:41:06--> 00:41:16

So, if you are not better than Musa alayhis salam, and they are not worse than Iran, then you need to speak to them with more leniency.

00:41:17--> 00:41:18

You understand?

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

Nobody on earth today this wisdom

00:41:23--> 00:41:24

used to say

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

to

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

my people, I don't know another god for you besides me.

00:41:34--> 00:41:36

He says Allah, Allah

00:41:41--> 00:41:54

subhana wa, today who you are going to talk to is not as bad as so what's your what's your heart? Why are you giving the Dow is it for your sake or your chest sake or for the sake of Allah.

00:41:55--> 00:42:07

If you are giving for the sake of Allah, you will learn to love and to help conserve and to be soft and to keep trying and to keep repeating no need for hatred. You keep trying and you try until you die.

00:42:11--> 00:42:12

Allah says to

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

me, can

00:42:17--> 00:42:20

you convey the message we will take the account?

00:42:22--> 00:42:24

Why do we think we are more important than

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

I know.

00:42:28--> 00:42:31

Someone greets you Santa Monica. Just they just look at him.

00:42:33--> 00:42:34

Like they didn't hear

00:42:36--> 00:42:38

back, though.

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

Did you see his heart The only one who knows the heart is allowed to

00:42:47--> 00:43:04

greet the people humble down, shake on comes to the knowledgeable as well, to make them think that I am better than everyone else. That is the same sickness. That was the result of the test of shaytan. I spoke about it at the beginning of my talk.

00:43:05--> 00:43:17

Shakedown comes to the knowledgeable as well. In fact, in a strange way in disguise every day you need to ask yourself how did shaman come to me today?

00:43:18--> 00:43:21

If a few days passed and you don't know you need help,

00:43:22--> 00:43:29

because shaytan comes to me he comes to you. And a lot of the times when he knows you need five Salah you know a lot about Islam.

00:43:31--> 00:43:37

He comes in another way he spoils your heart. He makes you start belittling people

00:43:38--> 00:43:41

who cannot be with

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

me.

00:43:45--> 00:44:00

None of you will need to Agenda no one who will enter agenda in whose heart there is a mustard seeds wait with rye right. So the competitors ask the prophets Allah sent them they said

00:44:01--> 00:44:16

O Messenger, we love our clothing. We love our convenience. Because someone might think when you see a guy with nice clothes, maybe that is pride, a preference a lot of services. That is not a pride. Pride is

00:44:18--> 00:44:32

when you reject the truth after it is fair and you know it's the truth and you reject it. And when you despise the people when you listen to people when you mock at the people that is prime.

00:44:33--> 00:44:53

If I'm driving the latest car, I have the latest perfume. I have the best cloth but I am humbled I greet the people I'm talking to them. I read Salah I am okay I don't like to despise anyone I don't mock anyone. I don't work with a chip on my shoulder. There is nothing wrong. Maybe Allah gave me well.

00:44:55--> 00:44:57

I paid my soccer more than the soccer

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

make to our for the world.

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

See

00:45:01--> 00:45:04

that Allah keep them humble and use that wealth in a good course.

00:45:06--> 00:45:10

May Allah make us millionaires.

00:45:11--> 00:45:13

Mashallah that was a loud

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

rupee as a million is not too much.

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

Millennials in gold parks

00:45:24--> 00:45:43

are protected. So my brothers and sisters, you see, it's important for us to hold together as I told you the destruction we are witnessing throughout the Muslim world is more from inside than from outside. Look at our countries, you can name them.

00:45:44--> 00:46:10

The wars that are happening, you can name the wars, you know, I don't need to say the countries, all of them. They are suffering at the hands of one another. Do not allow that to happen to you. That's why I'm here today to tell you that message. Don't allow hate to creep in your heart. When you are a good Muslim. The sign of goodness of your Eman is that your heart becomes soft.

00:46:12--> 00:46:27

A sign that you are close to Allah is that your heart is solid. You are not harsh and hard and hard hearted and wretched. No, you are calm, you are soft, your nature is good. Your words are beautiful.

00:46:28--> 00:46:33

Your approach is amazing. fabby da

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

da

00:46:37--> 00:46:37

da da

00:46:40--> 00:46:42

da da dee

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

was down

00:46:52--> 00:46:53

in

00:46:54--> 00:46:55

Omaha.

00:46:57--> 00:47:18

It is because of the mercy of Allah that you are lenient towards those around you. You know what that means? When you are lenient to those around you. It is a saying that Allah is having mercy on you. Do you want to know if he is with you?

00:47:19--> 00:47:24

You need to ask yourself is my art lenient? If it is lenient, Allah says,

00:47:26--> 00:47:39

Allah, Allah, because of the mercy of Allah upon you. So you are lenient, when you are harsh, hard hearted, it is saying that there is a lack of the mercy of allowed.

00:47:41--> 00:48:02

So those of us who want to have a bad mouth, a bad heart, dirty heart. You know, in Islam, we are taught to have something known as the small one. A small one is one of the primary qualities of a Muslim. The problem with us today, we have more so

00:48:03--> 00:48:04

than

00:48:05--> 00:48:11

we think evil about others, before we think good about them.

00:48:13--> 00:48:36

When you see a man running away, out of the masjid, at the time of Salah, your duties to force yourself to think good things. Maybe his wife is delivering a baby he's running out, maybe he has a nosebleed maybe there is something wrong maybe there is an emergency maybe he needs the toilet, maybe that is

00:48:38--> 00:48:39

but we say something along

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

with the brother comes back the next day, and he says

00:48:52--> 00:48:54

How can I sell on him? He goes

00:48:56--> 00:48:58

that is the same your artists dirty my brother.

00:49:01--> 00:49:01

Please

00:49:03--> 00:49:04

don't worry.

00:49:07--> 00:49:09

But when you see the bank drinking alcohol

00:49:11--> 00:49:12

and he tells you I was really tasty.

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

We cannot do that.

00:49:17--> 00:49:32

So why am I speaking about alcohol because my brothers and sisters, when you see someone doing a sin lie in front of you. I'm not talking about stories, stories, we have another disease.

00:49:34--> 00:49:38

But when you see someone lying in front of you,

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

number one

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

to take away then if you can you talk to them. My brother, my sister, it's not a good thing. Try to leave it for the sake of Allah and then you can go away. What did you do? Did you expose them?

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

Today we are living in the age of Instagram. We are living in the age of internet, when you see someone committed,

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

you want to tell them

00:50:17--> 00:50:18

Are you

00:50:19--> 00:50:42

are you among men, if you are a believer, you will want to change the person the same way you want to change your son, your daughter, your own father or mother, you will not want to expose them. This is your son, your daughter, your brother, your sister. Remember, don't become happy to expose someone, man satama sliman saatavilla COVID.

00:50:44--> 00:50:59

Whoever covers a believer and covers their faults, that doesn't mean you don't correct them. You can tell them in a nice way you start to make a do out, it shows your artists clean. Secondly, you tell them in a very nice way.

00:51:00--> 00:51:06

Not a good thing. Leave it for the sake of Allah. What did I do? I told him in a nice way. But if I say

00:51:07--> 00:51:23

you are going to Johanna, how many of us have committed sins in the past, all of us. Still we make mistakes. I make mistakes, you make mistakes, we are human. When I make a mistake, I want you to correct me please.

00:51:24--> 00:51:30

Because I love you and you must love me. And I want to know for you and for me.

00:51:32--> 00:52:11

So this is the thing that we should not go around displaying things. Let me explain. When a person commits a sin nowadays, we forward the message we forward the rumor application. It's not even true. It's just an allegation, no evidence of it. And we are forwarding it all over the show getting excited. Oh, you know this person? Did you see they committed Zina? Did you see this enough? No. Did they committed? It's just a WhatsApp message. Did someone give them a fair trial? Did they listen to both sides? Did they see no nothing happened.

00:52:13--> 00:52:17

But who is spreading it? You and I? We just forward the message.

00:52:18--> 00:52:25

And then someone says you forwarding it yes i forward as received forwarded as received. Why do we do this?

00:52:26--> 00:52:38

May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for all of us. We need to learn to eradicate these bad habits I have spoken for longer than I thought I could speak it is the part of Indonesia

00:52:40--> 00:52:50

and the love of the brothers and the sisters out there. My sisters I apologize for having kept you out in the tent in the heat sweating.

00:52:51--> 00:52:55

While I kept on talking and talking you must be thinking when is he going to finish?

00:52:57--> 00:53:17

Finish now Allah subhana wa tada Bless you all know Allah unite us as an omen, Allah grant us love and the ability to clean the heart, my brothers and sisters Salah alone. Yes, it is a pillar of Islam. But with that you need to make sure that your luck is also important.

00:53:19--> 00:53:21

Your character your conduct.

00:53:22--> 00:53:26

Your heart needs to be good and you need to know your relationship with others.
