00:00:00--> 00:00:03

Salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakato

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

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah.

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

We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:00:15--> 00:00:43

we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he is his household, his companions We ask Allah to bless them, to bless all those who struggled and scroll through the generations to get the deen to us to bless us, all of us and our offspring to bless humanity at large. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us all goodness, and ultimately paradise me, my beloved brothers and sisters, do you know what I'm going to say today?

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

Do you have a clue?

00:00:46--> 00:00:48

So Panama no clue.

00:00:49--> 00:00:56

Mashallah, they told me in Brisbane, people always know what's about to happen. Allah.

00:00:57--> 00:01:30

Allah bless you, oh, my goodness me. My brothers and sisters, in our lives, we have to communicate with people in our lives, we have to communicate with people, the Almighty has communicated with us the divine legacy that the almighty subhanho wa Taala has granted through the messengers of his is such that we take lesson from everything that he has revealed.

00:01:31--> 00:01:37

Whenever want to communicate with you, or you'd like to communicate with anyone around you.

00:01:38--> 00:01:47

You have to understand how the Almighty has chosen to communicate with you and you've got to try your best to take lesson.

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

Where am I heading?

00:01:51--> 00:02:14

We have a difficulty today where people don't want to listen, especially children, especially others. People you want to advise you know what they tell you? Don't judge me. Have you heard that? Don't judge you tell them sister. I think it's time for Salah Hey, don't judge me. Anything I just said it's time for Salah. No, you think I don't pray? Nobody said.

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

Come on. Don't get so defensive.

00:02:18--> 00:02:37

No one wants to hear advice anymore. People say don't judge me. When you're trying to tell them something. That's good. But if you were to tell him sister, you know what the makeup you use is at one 10th of the price because it's yellow Wednesday, the 10th what? Mashallah, sorry, I just want to know Black Friday is on there has to be something else.

00:02:39--> 00:02:54

So my brothers and sisters, take a look at the Prophet Moses, may peace be upon him. Take a look at his brother, how own made peace be upon him. The two of them were sent by the almighty at their time. Would they not the best

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

at their time,

00:02:57--> 00:03:05

in terms of prophethood in terms of closeness to the almighty in terms of access to the maker himself.

00:03:11--> 00:03:36

Moses made peace be upon him is one of them, whom the almighty addressed directly he spoke to him. So he had access. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala tells them you know what? I'm sending the two of you to the pharaoh to remind him about me. remind him that he is not the God he claims to be, you know, the Pharaoh, what did he used to say to his people, he used to say,

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

both bokun

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

I am your Lord, the high high.

00:03:51--> 00:04:08

The Pharaoh used to say, oh my people, I don't know of any load of God for you besides me. The strange thing is what surprises me and always did since I was a child was that he went to the bathroom to write.

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

And he used to say, I don't know of the Lord for you, besides me, and he knew

00:04:16--> 00:04:22

and he has normal human struggles. And the almighty someone not only

00:04:24--> 00:04:45

engaging in the worst possible soon, which is schilke translated as association of partnership with the maker himself. Not only was that sin being perpetrated, but he installed himself as a partner with the maker and not only a partner, but he says forget the maker. I'm the maker.

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

Come on.

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

So the almighty decides you know what we need to take this man on his shoulders by what? Let's send it to him, two people. One more eloquent than the other

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

One more knowledgeable than the other. So Allah says to the Prophet Moses and his brother,

00:05:08--> 00:05:54

come to him, remind him. But remember, the reminders only have an impact and an effect in they are presented in the correct way. When you communicate with people, there is no point in opening your mouth without thinking because the almighty did not just give you a mouse, but he gave you a brain as well. If you're not going to marry the two, you will never get across what you're trying to get across. So if you don't think before you utter, you will regret what you've said, many of us make mistakes. And we regret later because we spoke either in anger when the mind was blocked or clouded. And we didn't think correctly. And therefore, we come back and say, I'm sorry, if we're the best of

00:05:54--> 00:06:02

people. We apologize. It's only the best. Who apologize. That

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

was that?

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

That?

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

Do you ever apologize?

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

If the answer is no,

00:06:13--> 00:06:23

today's the day you have to learn a lesson only the best of people say I'm sorry. Now others don't. So ask yourself, Am I in the best of people? Do I say I'm sorry, I'm really sorry. I mean, it.

00:06:25--> 00:07:08

May Allah grant us the ability to be humble enough to admit our faults. And to be able to say I'm sorry, and really mean it. It changes lives. It empowers your children, when you apologize to them. generations ago, people used to teach that you can never apologize to your kids. The generation is gone. It no longer works. You come and admit your fault. And you say listen, child, how I spoke to you was wrong. I'm so sorry. Really. I didn't mean to hurt you. Really? I'm sorry. you empower the child. You give the child the confidence the child needs. Here is the Prophet Moses the best of the time being sent to the worst of the time, who was the pharaoh? Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

the two of you go to him

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

and speak to him with a soft tone.

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

When the lenient tone and manner.

00:07:31--> 00:07:36

The words use soft words, not hardware, and move are they speaking to him.

00:07:37--> 00:07:51

He was speaking to the west of the time, and the Almighty Who is the most powerful who could have destroyed in a split second is telling them hang on. Just watch the words you use with the pharaoh

00:07:54--> 00:07:57

beloved mothers in law here in Brisbane, Mashallah.

00:07:58--> 00:08:05

When you address those, whom Allah has made related to you through your child,

00:08:07--> 00:08:12

just use kind words, and it will change lives.

00:08:13--> 00:08:16

The same applies to the daughters in law. So

00:08:18--> 00:08:38

the same applies to the sons and daughters, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, parents, children, whoever you are in community, outside the community, you could be a big boss working in such a way that so many are under you. And you could be one who is working in a way that many are above you, no matter what.

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

The person you are addressing can never be worse than the pharaoh himself.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

And you will never be better than Moses May peace be upon him. So you have to speak in an even more lenient way to get my point.

00:08:56--> 00:09:11

If we're not going to watch our words, we have failed as believers. When you want to declare yourself a Muslim, what do you say? La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah eyeshadow La ilaha illAllah

00:09:12--> 00:09:56

Muhammad Rasulullah I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad peace be upon him is the messenger. That statement takes you into the fold of Islam and I tell you what, the statements have await in the eyes of the Almighty some statements are heavier than others here happens to come one of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commenting about how short the other one is in a negative way. The Prophet peace be upon him says, You know what, if your statement was made into a droplet of ink, it would change the color of the entire ocean. That's how bad it was. And what was the statement. She's short. Now

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

what do we say? We swear we believe

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

We deceive, we cheat filled with malice, envy, jealousy, hatred, pride. We think we are someone but largely my brothers and sisters. In this world, you will never be someone.

00:10:13--> 00:10:25

It's only on the day of judgment when the almighty gives you your book in your right hand. You can say, Wow, read my book guys. Before that, no one can ever judge.

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

Whenever we read through after the fact,

00:10:29--> 00:10:33

and we're supposed to be reading it a minimum of 17 times a day, perhaps more.

00:10:36--> 00:10:41

One of the verses This is Manny Galan MIDI.

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

What does it mean?

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

What does it mean?

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

Can someone say which means

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

Owner of the Day of

00:10:52--> 00:11:38

Judgment, Allah has kept a massive Day of Judgment with 50,000 years of the years of this world one day in order to judge the hearts of the people and the minds of the people and the actions of the people and the words of the people and everything. Subhana Allah has kept that day. But here we are. The way we speak to others is so abusive, so hurtful, so bad, mostly it's to do with those we live with. And that's the test of the Almighty and we're failing dismally. No matter how many prayers you pray and you wasted your time. What's the point of having a fight with prayers in the first suffering? If you're a male, Subhana Allah, and you know what, you go home and you're swearing

00:11:38--> 00:12:12

people, you go out on the street, you're abusing others, you're swearing, you're not conscious of what comes out of your mouth. You know what will happen? On the day of judgment, your prayer is taken and given, given as a gift, or as a payment to the one whom you've wronged with your own tongue. Be careful what you say. Watch your words. Watch your words my brothers and sisters, that's the message of tonight. Be careful what you say we give charity Mashallah we shouldn't be Mashallah the humans are appealing to us to give

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

to the needy. Have you given Mashallah, it's great. Yeah.

00:12:28--> 00:12:46

Are you who believe, do not nullify the reward of your charities by bragging about it, or by abusing people with your mouse or in any other way? That's what it says, I could give a million. But if I saw someone that million is gone into the register of that person, I wasted my time.

00:12:50--> 00:12:51

You know what Allah subhanho wa Taala says.

00:13:06--> 00:13:42

So Panama, if you were to just say a good word, and you were to forgive, that forgiveness is not easy. If I say forgive this person, is it easy. It's not easy, especially when someone's been at your case for a long time. It's not easy to forgive, right? But the Almighty saying, if you were to say a good word, watch your mouth, Watch your tongue. Look at how you say what you want to say. It's not good enough to just say things you know, you blurt out whatever came to your mind gone without thinking about it, pausing for a moment, your words can slice.

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

In other words, can actually cause damage more than the

00:13:50--> 00:13:59

harm caused by a sharp sword SubhanAllah. That's factual. So Allah says, if you were to say a good word,

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

and forgiving, it's better than giving a charity that is followed by bragging or harm or abuse in any way. You're going to give a charity and then abuse you rather hold back, stop your abuse first.

00:14:16--> 00:14:35

May Allah grant us peace? So Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling the Prophet Moses who's the best to go to the west and speak with soft words. Do you know why? Because he says, Those are the words that may have an impact in terms of reminding him of the fact that he is not the maker. There is a maker above.

00:14:38--> 00:14:47

That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying, if I were to ask you, who from amongst who is better than the Prophet Moses, nobody's hands would go up. If I were to say,

00:14:50--> 00:14:58

who from amongst you is ever going to address someone worse than the pharaoh himself? Please put up your hand.

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

Oh, no, I see a hand.

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

I hope you're not referring to your

00:15:09--> 00:15:13

inshallah notes. I think maybe you didn't understand what I said.

00:15:16--> 00:15:40

But the point is, no matter who we are going to address from Hannah law, that person will never ever be worse than the Pharaoh. So speak with a lot of respect, even to those whom you differ with. One of the diseases of the age is when we differ with someone, we call them names of animals, we refer to them as idiots. We refer to them as even worse than that.

00:15:42--> 00:16:23

We come up with new terminology that is so offensive. For what what did you gain in proves that your relationship with the maker is weak because that person was created by the same maker you're trying to please? What's my mission on earth here to please my major, my maker made me and make those I differ with my maker made me made the non Muslims, the animals, the plants, whatever else it is, if I would like to prove my love to my maker, I need to prove to him that whatever you made is special to me, I will respect it, and I will fulfill its rights. You follow what I'm saying? Because I love you by making.

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

And if I really love you, then everything connected to you. And everything you made is special to me.

00:16:31--> 00:16:47

So Pamela, do you get what I'm saying? We fail because we forget that we're all creatures of the same maker. So when we refer to others who we don't like perhaps whom we haven't gotten along with all we've had a disagreement with or dispute,

00:16:48--> 00:17:20

we become hurtful, abusive, we lie, we want to create a bigger problem than the one there. I usually say when you have a problem, either leave it where it is, or solve it, or don't make it worse than it is. If I visited Brisbane, I'd like to leave Brisbane in a condition that the community can stay where it was or become better in one way or another but never come create a fitness or create a problem and issue and leave it here and I'm gone. And I'm just you know, they split into three pieces.

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

What type of person is that? Are you here to split the people and to bring them together?

00:17:29--> 00:17:43

Definitely to bring them together. My brothers and sisters differences are normal. You love your spouse, you will differ with your spouse, you love your children, your parents, your siblings, whoever you love, you will never think exactly the same.

00:17:44--> 00:17:52

There might be a little bit of common factor in thought but never 100% the same that's how the almighty made you

00:17:53--> 00:18:04

it's how you deal with the difference that distinguishes the donkey from the horse sorry to use the names of these animals but I think they're not bad we use both for transport right

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

Mashallah. Mashallah?

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

They look alike, don't they?

00:18:12--> 00:18:13

Mashallah.

00:18:14--> 00:18:50

But that's what distinguishes the one who's closer to the almighty from the one who's not the way you react, the way you use your mind and the way your words come out. It requires discipline. Are you ready for that? That will make you the best of people? Are you ready to speak with utmost respect in your home to begin with? refer to your loved ones as loved ones, even if you've had a difference? Tell them how much you love them. The problem was when things go wrong, we open our mouths and we haven't realized for 19 years things were going right. We didn't ever say they're going right. Mashallah.

00:18:51--> 00:18:55

I'm not really picking on those who are married for 20 years. But anyway.

00:18:58--> 00:19:08

Actually, someone came to me after I spoke in one of the cities here. And I said something very strange. We spoke about wedding anniversaries, right? Do you know why you celebrate?

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

If they say this is my 20th anniversary.

00:19:13--> 00:19:25

The world is such today that people get married without knowing why they're getting married. They don't know what marriage is all about getting married, coming together. You know, can I tell you in one word, what marriage is all about?

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

Towards

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

the biggest sacrifice? That's what marriage is.

00:19:34--> 00:19:43

Do you agree? Mashallah, I see more females than males. So common law was it just you wanna try again? Do you agree?

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

That was a little bit more balanced.

00:19:47--> 00:19:55

The biggest sacrifice, that's what marriage is it's not just a perpetual honeymoon. So Allah subhanaw taala.

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

But nowadays, very sadly and unfortunately, the

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

rate of divorce is so high. Can I tell you one of the reasons when you're getting married, the man reads a few verses to guys who are married. Do you remember those verses?

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

Do you remember those verses?

00:20:17--> 00:20:21

So holla No wonder why we be wrong.

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

Yeah.

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

What many

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

of you who believe

00:20:47--> 00:20:52

be conscious of the Almighty develop the correct relationship with your maker that's the term

00:20:53--> 00:20:56

develop the correct relationship with your maker.

00:20:58--> 00:21:24

And after that, which is strange, which is upright which is beautiful, which is full of goodness, which is far from abuse, and the birth which is far from falsehood, and anything derogatory. And if you were to watch your tongue, you know what we will do for you, they will mighty says, We will purify and make good your deeds, we will forgive your sins, we will grant you success. That is indeed the greatest success.

00:21:26--> 00:21:37

So when we get married, and we don't watch our tongues, things begin to go wrong, because you didn't watch your mouth and the almighty warned you at the beginning when you were getting married.

00:21:40--> 00:21:48

Mashallah French kiss fine, no problem. But beside here, I brought you weren't expecting that, right.

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

That's part of the reason why marriages go wrong is because we're not romantic enough.

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

You will not expecting that either.

00:21:59--> 00:22:08

It is an honor to say that I was somewhere in another country and assistant complaint. My husband hasn't been intimate for the last two years.

00:22:09--> 00:22:13

I see. One. Maybe you're making a mistake. It's supposed to be two days.

00:22:15--> 00:22:25

I can't believe it. When the prophet SAW Selim says it's an act of worship, to be intimate with your spouse. But no,

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

no.

00:22:33--> 00:23:01

I would never have said this 10 years back. But you know what we have a crisis in the oma romance is being shown to those besides the one boom, it is supposed to be shown to the I love using the beautiful emoticons and emojis that are continuously being created on platforms that are increasing on a daily basis are all sent beautifully 1000 times Mashallah, back to the wrong number.

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

That's where we're going wrong.

00:23:06--> 00:23:14

If you have to send one 10th of those to the person they were supposed to go to, you'd be having a Lehman the following game.

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

It's a reality. It's changed the way we speak, the way we treat our spouses. The province our Salaam says it's an act of charity. A good word is an act of charity, which means it's an act of worship. When you think before you speak, you have actually worshipped Allah, because you're using what he gave you and that's your brain. That's what distinguishes man from animal is the brain. So parallel, you have the ability to think you don't just bark. You don't just bring in

00:23:51--> 00:24:13

Swati la song to me. Indeed, the most detested of sounds is the brain of an axe, the brain of a donkey. That's what the Almighty says. Why does he say that? He says, watch how you speak. The way you speak determines how close you are to Allah.

00:24:14--> 00:24:59

Did you hear what I said? The way you speak. When you open your mouth determines how close you are to Allah. If you're really a pious person, it shows in the softness of your character. But if you reading one Quran every three days, but you're abusing someone that are on you're actually doing for someone else. That's what's happening. You don't really pious, Watch your tongue, make people feel good empower them. Today I was saying at the beginning of my speech, people don't want to listen to what others have to say, primarily because we don't empower them. We don't show care for them. We want to attack we want to abuse we want to shut down throats whereas we're in in an age or at a time

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

where

00:25:01--> 00:25:10

Don't need all of that. Even our children won't listen to us. If we don't spend more quality time with them, put your phones aside.

00:25:12--> 00:25:27

put everything aside. That's your gift from Allah, your child, how much time have you spend with your children, when you speak to them, if you want to change them go back to the advice of the Prophet of the Prophet Moses that Allah gave him

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

and take a look at it.

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

My brothers and sisters, this time

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

Subhan Allah

00:25:39--> 00:25:50

the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Kelly mentally healthy, fettuccine Anna, Lisa, tequila, Tammy finis Annie Hubby, Bethany. Manny.

00:25:52--> 00:26:36

Subhana Allah, He will become de Suhana la de la bien didn't it sounds so nice. You know what it means? Two little words that you utter? Very light on the tongue, very heavy on the scale, very lovely to the Most Merciful. What are they praise be to Allah. All praises do to Allah Glory be to Allah, the great, a great test. If you were to say these words, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says they're very heavy on the scale of their most loved by the Almighty, that goes to show that your words are weighed, they are weighed when I was young, I used to think how are they going to weigh these words? I remember learning this Hadith, right at the beginning, many years back, how

00:26:36--> 00:27:03

would they weigh words, you know, until later on, when I started recording myself. And somehow Allah, it's either one megabyte or one gigabyte, isn't it? Right? If you want to send a voice note, what happens is weight is weighed in what? in a certain way, nobody says weighing means kilograms. It's waiting. megabytes kilobytes, whatever else gigabytes, terabytes, right?

00:27:04--> 00:27:13

So Hana man, Watch your words, sometimes they're very, very hurtful. And you haven't realized that.

00:27:16--> 00:27:24

This is part of the Divine legacy. My brothers, my sisters, if you would like to know, many of the sisters here are being abused.

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

Not just here, but across the globe,

00:27:30--> 00:27:35

by many who think that they are their bosses, and you're not.

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

Our boss, collectively is Allah, He is our maker.

00:27:43--> 00:27:46

Because conscious of him, watch what you're seeing.

00:27:47--> 00:28:09

There was a man at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, who was saying a harsh word to his servant. And he felt attacked on his shoulder. He turned around and saw it was the messenger Muhammad peace be upon him. And the message just says, Allah has greater authority and control over you, then you have over this person you're just abusing.

00:28:11--> 00:28:40

It caused this person to tremble and to utter words of seeking forgiveness in such a beautiful way thereafter, and promising it will not happen again, we need the same reminder. When you're alerting someone, when you're abusing someone, when you're treating someone remember, it's just a debt that shall be paid back in this world before the next, the Almighty will create someone one day to do exactly the same to you.

00:28:42--> 00:28:56

If not, you're going to face the consequences on the Day of Judgment, which will be even worse. So my brothers and sisters, what am I going to say? moisten your tongue with the remembrance of Allah and you will never go wrong.

00:28:57--> 00:29:25

If your tongue is always moistened with the remembrance of Allah, you remembering Allah, you read the Koran, with the true consciousness. You know, when I read the Quran, I've come now to realize and to understand, Oh Allah, as much as I'm reading this is accepted from me and help from me and helped me to God, right up to the Day of Judgment so that I come with it, and then it can be multiplied by 10. Because I've heard Allah say,

00:29:31--> 00:29:32

more on show.

00:29:34--> 00:29:43

Whoever comes on the Day of Judgment with a good deed, then it shall be multiplied for them by 10.

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

What's the meaning of comes with the good deed? To do a good deed is basic. It's so easy. If I were to get you up for San Antonio Fanjul, which some might argue is the most difficult in terms of timing, and I want to tell you pray to get up

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

Do the EU and to pray will not take you more than a few minutes. And you know what? It's quite easy. It's not difficult no one beat you up. It wasn't difficult at all. Once you fulfill that prayer, watch your mouth, do you know why it is the mouth, that may cause that prayer to have disappeared by the time you get to Allah on the Day of Judgment, hence, you would have done the good deed, but you didn't come with it, why it was lost in the way. That's why the Almighty says, to come with the good deed on the Day of Judgment is 10 times more difficult than to do the deed. In the minimum, that's why we will multiply the ones who succeeded to do the deed and then to come with it on the Day of

00:30:46--> 00:31:31

Judgment. Now you deserve a multiplication well done to do it was easy, I could have said with with with mice with Hannah law 100 times 133 times my Alhamdulillah 33 times my 34 times, and so on, I could have done it every day. But to do It is one thing to manage to protect it and to bring it without having abused anyone is far more difficult. Which one does the almighty stress? What is it that will result in the multiplication of the reward? And why would it be multiplied? Because to look after the tongue, and the way you treated others is much more difficult than just to do an act of worship. And therefore, my brothers and sisters remember one thing.

00:31:32--> 00:32:22

Islam is not only about five daily prayers, Islam is not only about going for Hajj. Islam is not only about giving charity, Islam is not only about fasting in Ramadan, Islam is also an equally important, protecting yourself from abusing others from hurting others from usurping their wealth from doing something wrong to them. As much as you have to fulfill the rights of Allah, you have to fulfill the rights of the rest of the creatures of Allah. I'm so happy that this evening. with human appeal, we've been given an opportunity to donate to be charitable. Don't forget, you need to be charitable, even in your own homes. Just by smiling. If a smile is given value, because it's called

00:32:22--> 00:32:36

a sadhaka it means it's an act of worship. So Panama we should be people who will come on the Day of Judgment with the best of reward. We've been smiling all our lives Mashallah they even called me smile Mashallah

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

for those of you who know right,

00:32:41--> 00:33:14

Masha Allah May Allah bless Allah He my brothers and sisters, what I've said today is extremely important. I think many people don't address the when we talk to others if you want to listen to me, why is it because I'm supposed to be giving you something while making you feel good. So Hannah, while making you appreciate yourself to begin with, making you realize your own value were valuable people if I think I have values from Canada, you probably have greater value than I do. I need to acknowledge it. And Subhanallah at the same time, I will feel better.

00:33:15--> 00:33:17

Allah grant us goodness.

00:33:19--> 00:33:28

I was told you can speak for as long as you want. Because you know what? It's not every day that you come to Brisbane. I don't know if that offer still stands Mashallah.

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

Does it? Can I carry on?

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

Mashallah means I'll have to come back.

00:33:37--> 00:34:02

My brothers and sisters May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our good deeds may me become from among those who are conscious of whatever we say whatever we do, may we be from among those who repeat Good, good words, may we go home today and change our lives? We have to you want to change your life while you're connecting to your maker, learn to respect those who own the same maker has created

00:34:03--> 00:34:05

starting with your spouse.

00:34:07--> 00:34:16

We've heard the hotties many times the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says the best form amongst you. Is he or she who is best to his or her spouse?

00:34:17--> 00:34:27

Am I the best? I need to aim for that. Recently, we were sitting in a gathering and someone was saying you know, those

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

who have an examination and they say

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

I want to get 100%

00:34:37--> 00:34:56

I've worked hard. I need 100% they probably get in the 90s. You agree worst case scenario in the 80s. But they passed with top marks right? They were aiming at 100 but those who tell you I just want to pass I just want to pass those are the ones who fail.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

So this is why I'm in the process.

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

tells us when you ask Allah for gentlemen don't just say

00:35:04--> 00:35:13

no, don't just want to get into gentlemen say Oh Allah I want Lv knows. Oh Allah I want those in gentlemen, do you know what? Those

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

are sorry? It's not the sister sitting next to you No, no.

00:35:18--> 00:35:38

I think there are something doses here, right? We're talking about those meaning someone here whose name is Windows, and Windows is one of the highest ranks in Jelena a place that is amazing gentlemen. That's what we call it. When you ask Allah for those, do you know what? At least you make it into general.

00:35:40--> 00:36:20

But if you say I just want to get in, I just need to go in. I know we do. But you have a much higher because then you might just fail the devil. I want to say two things before I close if you want gentlemen. seek the forgiveness of Allah on a daily basis. He is the Most Merciful, the most compassionate, the most kind, the most beneficence, the most forgiving, etc, etc. He will forgive you every time you say Oh ALLAH forgive me. He will say to you, I have forgiven you, you are pure, you are clean. Once again, no matter what you've done. Remember that on a daily basis seek forgiveness, you will get judged. Secondly, you want gentlemen say Allahumma inni.

00:36:22--> 00:36:46

Oh Allah, I asked you to grant me gentlemen, you need to say that on a daily basis. Those prayers are recorded on the Day of Judgment, gentlemen, itself will say to Allah, Oh Allah, this person was asking you to grant him or her entry into Gentlemen, I am pleading on behalf of this person to let them come in. So hon Allah keep asking ALLAH

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

and treat those that Allah has created with utmost respect, even if you defer and disagree very strongly, let it be with the best respect Apollo only Allah

00:37:02--> 00:37:05

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
