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

Somebody's mental body Obamacare

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

inshallah will commence with a short presentation

00:00:09--> 00:00:14

and I pray that we can all decided to listen very carefully and attentively.

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

I will be learning Amina shavonda watching Bismillah

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

yo

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

yo

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

name is

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

so what

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

do I

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

mean?

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

He goes

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

on

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

salatu salam

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

aleikum wa salam ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad.

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

Majeed, allama baddeck Allah Mohammed, Mohammed

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

Mohammed Ahmed.

00:03:11--> 00:03:43

We commenced by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala sending blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household and all his companions, we ask Allah subhana wa Jalla to bless every single one of them, and to bless us all and our offspring those to come up to the day of piano. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all may keep us steadfast and them as well and may be pleased with us all. I mean, with our brothers and sisters in Islam, this afternoon inshallah, we will be speaking about the goodly life.

00:03:45--> 00:04:11

And we will be concentrating on how sometimes a moment of pleasure that seems to be pleasurable can actually result in disaster that is everlasting. So panela May the almighty protect us May the almighty grandest goodness, and may He make us distinguish between right and wrong and at the same time, May He grant us the acceptance to follow the path of goodness and to protect ourselves from the path of evil.

00:04:14--> 00:04:22

In life, we as meaning should be concentrating on what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:04:23--> 00:04:57

Every one of us should be engaged on a daily basis in items, things deeds, statements that are within the pleasure of the Almighty because the whole aim and purpose of being in this world is in order to seize the opportunity of this particular life to pack away as many good deeds as possible. So that when we meet Allah Subhana, WA Tada, our suitcases can be full of good deeds, and we can have records that will be filled with that which is good, maybe Almighty protect us from that which is bad and evil.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

So the aim of life

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Is to worship Allah to please Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, this is why we are meaning. And this is the reason why we considered ourselves favorite because we have understood why we have been created. Allah says in the Quran, I'm sure we would all know it by heart, we should be knowing it off by heart. Because the question you would ask yourself, I would ask myself in any normal human being would have to ask himself or herself, at some point in his or her life is why was I made? Why was I created? And because Allah created us, he knows that this question is only normal to be asked by one ago, so he answers it. And he says,

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

I have not created mankind virgin kind, except that they worship me. That's the reason why I made them.

00:06:04--> 00:06:52

And I've spoken to young people who say is that it isn't are boring, it is selfish. Don't let shavon make you think for a moment that that is boring. No, it is a lot telling you that I've only created you so that you worship me. But perhaps you don't understand what is meant by the term worship. What is meant by the term worship is anything and everything you do in your life, make sure it is within the pleasure of the Almighty, and it is not within his displeasure, then we will be engaged in perpetual worship, even whilst you're sleeping. Make sure you don't snore because then we were speaking with some of my relatives here, telling me it's a Panama there are people who commit

00:06:52--> 00:07:00

atrocities against their own wives by slowing or let Allah protect us. I don't think that's a weapon of mass destruction. It's only a nose or throat level.

00:07:02--> 00:07:28

So my brothers and sisters you need to know when you are sleeping or when you go to sleep. How is it that you went into bed? What was your intention? What were the praise you made? Did you realize what sleep is and do you know you may not get up if you are if you are conscious of this and you've said your prayers and so on, even during your sleep, you will be written as a person who is involved in an act of wish.

00:07:30--> 00:08:10

Because you are conscious of it. And when you get up what do you say as soon as you get up All praise is due to Allah who has given me life after he had given me the sleep, which is equivalent to a certain type of death, love. Some people pass away in their sleep. And they have a very straightforward simple death, love Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who realize and recognize that he is indeed the greatest, he can do whatever he wants, and nobody can ask him. When we do things we are unsuitable, we are questionable. And this brings me to another meaning of the term worshipping Allah, anything and everything you do be conscious of the fact that Allah is going

00:08:10--> 00:08:25

to ask you about it you are answerable. Really? How did you do this? Why did you do this? When did you do it? And even sometimes Why can you not do certain things? If that is the instruction of Allah, you have no option but to involve in it.

00:08:26--> 00:08:37

If Allah instructs you to dress appropriately, within certain limits and scope, if you think you have an option you are fighting with Allah wa mercan anymore.

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

It is not for a believing male or female that will

00:08:54--> 00:09:37

have dictated something that they think in their hearts that we still have a choice about it. No, you don't. Once there is a dictation from Allah and His or soon, your choice is eradicated. It's no longer there. That is why your code is submitted. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. What's the point of calling ourselves Muslim mean? Muslim is one who submits at least Islamic law. One who submits unto Allah surrenders, whatever Allah says it has it should be happening. So that is why we are almost living so how can we call ourselves Muslim and at the same time think that I have a choice? If I'd like to do this, I can if I don't want to, I don't have to. Well then why are you

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

calling yourself a submitted when you're lying? You're not really a submitted lava but Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses me make it easy for us. This is why my brothers and sisters. What I want to speak about today is very important. Every action of yours has a reaction. Remember that everything you do

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

will either return to you in goodness or in something similar to what you have done if it was not goodness through Allah's mercy, when you do a good deed, he may multiply it very well may come to you in so many different ways, and he may multiply not only tenfold but up to 700 fold and beyond, depending on the deed and your sincerity

00:10:22--> 00:10:39

through His mercy when you do a bad deed he recompenses you if you have not returned to him and engaged in Toba within a specific timeframe, in that particular case, what will happen? He will recompense you will exactly what you deserve, not multiplied.

00:10:41--> 00:11:21

This is something that we learn from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, you do a good deed. You intend the good deed and you were unable to do it. You're rewarded with your intention. You intend the good deed and you doing it is multiplied for you depending on the sincerity and the action itself. You intend the bad deed and you do not do it. At times, you may be rewarded to have abstained for the sake of Allah because abstention from haram for the sake of Allah is indeed a great act of wish. And if you intend the bad deed and ended up doing it next to your name is one sin, Allah doesn't multiply. Look at the mercy of Allah. Look at the mercy of Allah. And when we say

00:11:21--> 00:11:43

Allah gives you time and respect every person every time and every deed has different timings before they are overtaken by that Recompense. So there is no timeframe that is in minutes or hours or days for years before the punishment may overtake you. But Allah knows he releases you It gives you a chance. Then Allah says, In

00:11:49--> 00:12:02

winter when the fixed time of a love comes, when the prescribed moment comes, it will not be delayed Not at all. So your moment of pleasure that was in the displeasure of Allah, you will pay for it.

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

But Allah says he says

00:12:07--> 00:12:11

if you want not to pay for it, there is a way out. press the delete button.

00:12:13--> 00:12:41

And when you press the delete button, it's not enough you need to press enter. Sure you know that don't you? Go back to your laptops, your computers, your phones, whatever you want to press Delete. Normally you'd have to press Enter thereafter you can press Delete, but it may not be nowadays you might have settings that might allow you to delete it I don't know people are thinking fast You know, it's a shame you're wrong. I can just press Delete and it's gone. Well you can press undo as well do you know that go back to you know

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

you think perhaps Mashallah we try to keep up with you.

00:12:47--> 00:13:27

So my brothers and sisters you delete a new editor that means Are you sure you want to delete this? they asked you you said yes, I'm sure deleted it's gone wiped out totally out. We've changed our life, the analysis now the reconvince will not come because it is found a different path. I am treading a path of disobedience. recompense is coming to me through that path and suddenly delete my path is changed. It misses me gone. So Pamela, look at the mercy of Allah. So when you do bad remember, it's coming back to haunt you. Remember that it's coming back to haunt you. There's no two ways out. It is coming either in this world

00:13:29--> 00:13:42

and the next, or just in this world, or just in the next depending on what Allah wants for you. And for me, May Allah forgive our shortcomings. This is why we learned as soon as

00:13:44--> 00:14:05

he spent time of the day every single day saying Oh ALLAH forgive me a Stubblefield Allah, Allah I seek forgiveness, I repent. And remember there is a difference between Toba and ecfr is still far is to say, I seek your forgiveness of Allah and Toba is to return to Allah. So we need still far and Toba esta Furukawa.

00:14:07--> 00:14:25

I seek your forgiveness. And on top of that, I'm now returning to you, which means I'm no longer going to go back to that path. Some people say they mean it, but they go back. Like I said, undo so when we come back what happens? That comes back into your computer in the form of a virus, but Allah protect us really.

00:14:26--> 00:14:32

My brothers and sisters, Allah is so merciful. I'd like to give you a few examples from real life.

00:14:34--> 00:14:56

And these are examples that will help you you know, the way you carry yourself and where you go. And what you do really plays a big role in what's going to happen to your future in the dunya and the AFA. Did you ever know that? how you dress also affects your future. And I know people have met their spouses sometimes in a nightclub. It happens and what happens thereafter

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

if they end up getting married

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

When I told you they met their spouses, meaning they are married, I'd like to hope

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

they get married after they've met in the nightclub.

00:15:08--> 00:15:21

unless Allah has mercy overtakes them by them engaging in so far and searching for the truth will likely they will have to pay for that heavily. So let me get this straight. If you engage in it.

00:15:22--> 00:15:40

You can still delete the mistakes you've made in the past. But sometimes you have to pay for a long, long time going into the you know, you you dressed in miniskirts and that's when your your man your guy, that guy of your dream. So you noticed you looked at you he did you mean back to Allah

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

Subhana Allah And what happened? He was attracted to your legs.

00:15:48--> 00:16:06

And he made your legs, not your heart? Did you know that the men get married to your head, your legs, your facial expressions, and so on not your heart, not your character, not your deal. And then often what happens? A time comes when you develop a little bit of an arthritis on your legs.

00:16:08--> 00:16:18

That's from Allah. Sometimes it's so cold, you know, here, so you're going to cover them up. And maybe you have to have a bandage that comes in age when your room spends on weeks you don't six

00:16:21--> 00:16:31

and after that husbands not not at home, but where are you looking at other days? Why? Because that's what I like to do in the first place. That's what I like in women legs, law,

00:16:32--> 00:16:58

or law, if he was attracted to your deen and you're full of your legs would have been covered, it would have been a mystery for him. So panela. And at the same time, he would have been attracted to someone who is covered if he that type of a person was attracted towards you, because you are trying to achieve the pleasure of Allah. It means he too, would like through you to achieve the pleasure of Allah and perhaps to have offspring who will be on similar lines. Then what will happen

00:16:59--> 00:17:07

30 years down the line 40 years down the line. When both of you are in bed. You'd say Darling, you might Angel.

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

And you look at him and start crying.

00:17:13--> 00:17:18

Because you know this man loves me for for the fact that I'm trying to earn the pleasure online.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

And he hasn't abused that. Not at all.

00:17:22--> 00:17:59

And even though I'm wrinkled up perhaps hunchbacked, but to him, the most important person here at the moment, Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant disputes. Why I give this example there are too many people who select the spouse because of a temporary disobedience that they had engaged in short term, you were happy, Allah gave you the most beautiful hair. And you decided that, you know, wow. This way, you know, something here the other day, we were passing in Bolton, you know. And near the train station, I think the university was released.

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

And you know, I try my best I try my best. I'm also human being online, you need to know that, you know, people really raise you high above whatever you say you are. But the truth is human being. And as I looked across, I noticed someone with hair and I said, this is the meaning of camel camel.

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

I don't know it was

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

a lot. It went up. And I'm thinking.

00:18:27--> 00:18:38

And obviously it did not attract me at all. But I was shocked. And when I looked down, I said to myself, people look so sick. And they really think they cool.

00:18:39--> 00:19:20

It's cool to look like a demo online. Is that what it is? Half the time we don't even know, half the time we don't even know what we're doing is actually a satanic ritual. It's a ritual. It is an act of worship of the devil worshipers and we think okay, let me take that black, whatever it's called and bring it right to the corner here. Let it come all the way up to you and not realizing that's how they worship the devil go and see. So today we have Google and YouTube and all this and it's not difficult to find out where it came from and how it started and our sisters are doing that my sister if a guy is attracted to you like that he's the guy you're supposed to be away from because that is

00:19:20--> 00:19:36

the guy who's gonna take you away from your deal. The day you realize you made a mistake, he will not allow you to turn to Allah because he's gonna keep on telling you they take that stuff off when I met you. You didn't have it when I married you you had an inch of ice on your face and I wanted back then.

00:19:39--> 00:19:42

Yes, and that's why I used to call him a cake.

00:19:44--> 00:19:45

Goddess.

00:19:46--> 00:20:00

That little call for a few moments has resulted in eternal suffering or should I say long term suffering, if not eternal? Because you trapped you want to return you cannot return why you made a mistake by not dressing appropriately.

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

In the first place

00:20:03--> 00:20:17

it's a very important example of brothers as well, we have sometimes because of something we've done outwardly or a place, we will found that, you know, you go to a club, this has happened to me in real life, where a brother went to the club.

00:20:18--> 00:20:22

And he came back. And about a year later, he came to me.

00:20:24--> 00:20:51

He told me, I've got a very big problem. I said, What is it? A young lad, and supposedly religious. He says, last year, some time with a group of friends, you know, we was hanging out, and we went to this club, and we spent three hours in the club. I said, Did you engage in doba? He said, every day. Listen to this every day. I cried to Allah. So I said, so forgive you. He said, I've got a bigger problem.

00:20:52--> 00:20:53

I'm a father.

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

You know what he's saying? He impregnated someone in one night. I said,

00:20:59--> 00:21:20

may Allah subhanho wa Taala. Open your doors, you know, now what do we say we live in an environment that is not an Islamic environment? And he's crying more and more, and I've tried to what should I do comfort him, admonish him or try and tell him we tried to give him a little bit of hope, at least each other? Don't worry, you can still he says, No. He explains to me. I'm a father of three children.

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

He said she did have a triplets.

00:21:25--> 00:21:29

We can laugh at it, but it's shocking. It's a true story.

00:21:31--> 00:21:35

And he says, I've never been to a club before that or after that.

00:21:37--> 00:21:52

And then I thought to myself, Allahu Akbar, a moment of pleasure, which is not actually pleasure, but following the knifes and we'll have a look at the results. My sisters, that sister was not a Muslim. But that could happen to anyone if you let your guard down. Be careful.

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

I like to think you're Emmanuel Islam. your virginity is the next most valuable thing you own.

00:22:01--> 00:22:11

Yes, your deen thereafter. Your chastity, your movement, your lady protected. That doesn't mean the men shouldn't. But a woman so Hannah law.

00:22:12--> 00:22:24

Society may never forgive, you know how it is Allah. And Allah always does. But you may have stretched your sleep in a way that that scratch will always appear on your

00:22:25--> 00:22:31

brother brothers don't think you can get away with it in the sense that the only way forward is engaged in television.

00:22:32--> 00:22:37

And in fact, before that, don't fall in that path control yourself.

00:22:38--> 00:22:51

And this is why we are taught to lower our gaze for what so that we don't even go that direction imagined. I'm only speaking about the connection of the opposite sexes. We haven't yet gone into anything else.

00:22:52--> 00:23:36

And we've spoken about dress code, how it can affect you one little thing and what can happen. haram relation how religion if you don't catch it, now it comes back to haunt you. Last night I spoke about how sometimes when you have had your nica your marriage the sacred union, which will result in a progeny who will be the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to come from that sacred Union and the party you had in order to celebrate such a sacred union was a free for all mix party with a lot of music and dancing. Sometimes we've hired you know, people to come in dance on the floor and everybody comes in I know Muslim functions that have served alcohol, claiming that this is only for

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

the non Muslim guests.

00:23:42--> 00:23:48

If that's the case, if you have not engaged in Toba thereafter,

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

if you have not engaged in sincere Toba and shed tears, what wrong you did the day you got married,

00:23:58--> 00:24:26

it will come back to haunt you either in the form of absolutely disobedient children or in the form of some form of difficulty that Allah has chosen for you because you play a game with the Creator, who is the owner, the one that you control, the one who can release the sky. Now, the one who can open the ground now the one who can cause anything to happen at any time. He's the owner. Don't play games with him.

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

I have a friend you might know him.

00:24:30--> 00:24:34

He's a boxer and a rugby player. He went to come here and he's taller than me about so much.

00:24:36--> 00:24:46

Imagine he's got you know, six packs solid guy. And he would say to you know your hand like this, you know when he's finished with you, you like oh,

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

and he just shook you normally Imagine if he had to squeeze what would happen. And if he was there, and you had to do something, you know, like, sway him or something. I don't think anyone would do that because you know, he could

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

Perhaps just lift you up and say Hey, what's going on?

00:25:04--> 00:25:30

We are frightened of human beings because we see them physically in front of us as stronger than us. But we're not fighting of Allah police that he will gela who owns your eyes and your nose and your breathing and your heart and your your entire system and then your digestion the works he owns absolutely everything. You don't worry about that. You still want to displease him, while the effect of it will come back but there's a way out delete an editor.

00:25:31--> 00:25:34

Why we say delete and enter is because of the following verse.

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

In

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

Swanee hat.

00:25:52--> 00:26:12

When Allah speaks of those who will be receiving double punishment, he says, except those who have repented, believed and done good deeds thereafter, we will convert those bad deeds on the other side of the scale as good deed SubhanAllah. What this means is you repent and after repentance, you do good deeds, as we say.

00:26:14--> 00:26:36

One Direction makes mention of how if you follow up the bad deeds with good deeds after Toba, they will be wiped out completely. And as for the minus and sometimes they are wiped out as you engaging in more and more good deeds to Panama major sins requires specific token, you need to know I was wrong. I regret I asked for forgiveness and I'm not going to repeat for conditions.

00:26:37--> 00:26:41

If that's meant wiped, out, deleted, edited, gone.

00:26:45--> 00:26:47

Now let's get to the issue of sustenance. Sometimes, you know,

00:26:49--> 00:26:54

back at home, we have a problem. What's the problem? I don't know you're facing here.

00:26:55--> 00:27:12

The lottery, the guys in the line, I'm assuming sometimes you're standing in the line to buy tickets, tickets of the lottery. And you tell them share. This is how you know there is a fifth one that came from one corner of some way that says there's nothing wrong with this.

00:27:13--> 00:27:15

Those are not fair to us fatwas.

00:27:17--> 00:27:21

Allah protect us, Allah subhanho wa Taala Countess goodness.

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

You know what happens?

00:27:28--> 00:28:04

They would lose their money or if they want the money, the excitement of the women, results in their downfall, just like a man who consumes interest, or a man who has learned how to female who has said sustenance suhara what happens? The left Well, they may be excited for a moment to say I achieved and I got it will not be spent in the pleasure of Allah but in the disobedience of Allah. And it will not come about with any goodness, the energy that your body derives from that which is haram will never achieve satisfaction except to harm. So the Quran says

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

and levena

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

shame on me nonetheless.

00:28:17--> 00:28:22

This verse has several meanings are mentioned one of them, the one who consumes interest,

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

or those who consume interest, they do not stay

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

except like the sending of he who is possessed by the devil.

00:28:33--> 00:29:02

So you could say their thinking is warped completely as a possessed person, or you could say when they are resurrected, that's also included in it. Or you could say the way they behave the way they carry themselves is absolutely unacceptable. Yes, yet they may think they are doing something good. Somehow they won't understand and realize, you see when I put a morsel of in my mouth, it may have tasted good. Allah protect us.

00:29:03--> 00:29:38

And we might be excited I afford it so much your income was Haram. Okay, what happens? Your tongue curses you the throat softeners going down. Little intestine, the colon, everything cursing you doesn't want to be late. You've now got energy from the food that you've eaten which is haram or from a haram source. So now the energy comes into your eyes, your brain. So your eyes are not Quidditch? Quidditch? your eyesight unless you look at home, so your wife ugly Why? Because your consumption is wrong.

00:29:40--> 00:29:51

But when you look on the street, Okay, brother that's not yours. You're not going to get it anyway. Don't look. It's no waste. Don't waste your time. And if you do, it will be so hard on Allah protect us.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

So you're not crazy unless you look around when you think you're not quenched. Unless

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

You think that you think the vetted thoughts or thoughts, and you start thinking things against Allah, and so on? Because you're the energy being used now is derived from heroin source. What do you expect your brain to be used for? You need to engage in Toba to clarify your system.

00:30:21--> 00:31:07

This is why there is a narration that says that piece of flesh that is built through harem cannot edit agenda because it is preferred to be in hellfire. It needs to burn out there. When you enter gentlemen, why should we do that? And this is why we say if you hold on to pornography, or if you find yourself very very attracted to haram ask yourself how's my income? What am I doing? Perhaps there are other things which I'm doing which have clustered together all the time. You paying for it? You might have just had in one bout 20,000 pounds interest or the lottery of 200,000 pounds. And what happens then after you one by one, you making payments until your reproductive system is

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

contaminated. And I don't even want to go for

00:31:11--> 00:31:12

love.

00:31:13--> 00:31:36

Silver We are so fortunate imagine the mercy of Allah. Allah has given us a gift known as repentance Allah He, I sit and I think to myself, yeah, Allah, Allah, Allah mean countless if who you are, you've given us a way to just say I'm sorry. And you always say it's okay. Hello. Hello. Imagine you harm someone. I'm sorry.

00:31:37--> 00:31:49

They're going to keep on saying Okay, okay. Okay. It's okay. There is a limited, I'm sure you know the story of the three, you know, the pious guys. And if you don't know it, you have to do a bit of googling in Java.

00:31:51--> 00:32:00

You cannot get away with it all the time. But with Allah, He says, Don't want to repeat you have that genuine repentance with the conditions we will forgive you.

00:32:02--> 00:32:22

And this is why we say the hands of those who have eaten will never ever be satisfied unless they touch harem, unless they feel how the legs will not be happy unless they will walk towards harm. So engage in Toba so that you can actually resolve that matter, purify yourself once again. This is why we say

00:32:24--> 00:32:49

engage in Java so many times a day, how many do you do in a day how many times he did not need it to be honest with you, but 100 Times up to 100 times a day he used to say Allah forgive me. I am guilty of not following the net sooner according to the method I'm supposed to be follow. And I'm sure we all could do much better than we are. Now open our doors.

00:32:51--> 00:33:05

So this is the middle contentment that you might have have had on income, how it contaminates your entire system. And then your mind is dirty, your eyes are dirty, your nose is dirty everything your hands, your legs, your feet, whatever else may Allah safeguard us and God's goodness.

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

The same applies to these little moments

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

that we engage in sin.

00:33:15--> 00:33:18

If a person has to die in that condition will

00:33:20--> 00:33:26

then receive the dual Toby's will not happen. Doesn't happen. In Amata.

00:33:29--> 00:34:03

Toba is acceptable. up to the point of law is one of the stages of psychology when you're about to die. One final stage known as another up to that point, you can say Allah forgive me, Allah do this Yala. I asked you, you know, I repent and so on will forgive you that it will go down in your book. But beyond that point, no, the doors closed. It's too late. So this is why Allah Subhana Allah Allah speaks about these are presses the ones who were pressed against themselves, the ones who've been the ones who've engaged in that which is absolutely unacceptable. And unless is Elijah

00:34:11--> 00:34:13

Lani

00:34:15--> 00:34:16

FEMA

00:34:18--> 00:34:21

can in Kereama

00:34:26--> 00:34:30

Allah says when it comes to them, they would say, oh,

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

return.

00:34:33--> 00:34:47

Why don't you return? We want to go back and do good deeds. Now. We know now we've seen Alice's name. It's just a statement that it's just a statement has been made to go back, they would have repeated the same thing again.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Learn how to make us from those. So these are moments that sometimes we spend thinking that this is pleasure, and you don't realize it is like a seed that is sown

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

So bad then when the tree grows, the only way out is to cut the tree out and replant love.

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

Don't underestimate

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

how a little sin can change your life

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

towards what is negative. Don't ever underestimate that. Remember, for the pleasure of Allah, you need to hold yourself back, you need to understand, you know, we have solid federal, if you notice up to now I've spoken about the importance of abstaining from the displeasure of Allah,

00:35:39--> 00:35:51

which might be within someone's within the pleasure of one's neffs. For a moment, we've concentrated on that. But now I'd like to speak about

00:35:52--> 00:36:37

the difficulty that one should endure if they find it difficult, in order to obey the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So to abstain from prohibition, that's one thing, but to engage in your obligations and fulfill them correctly, that is another thing. So you would need to get up for solid federal, you will need to engage in that which you are supposed to and it might require an effort it will definitely require an effort initially, when people are not so used to reading Salah you know, they might feel very lazy, you have no option you have to get up it's routine. It is something solid to the future. Don't say I'm lazy, no throw the laziness out. Well, if you have a train to catch or

00:36:37--> 00:36:42

a plane to catch, you will be there 15 minutes or 15 minutes ahead of time.

00:36:44--> 00:36:51

What is your plane into the era? Are you going to get out for Serato or whatever if a man says you know what, this is the last

00:36:54--> 00:37:08

and you sorting away? It can be and this is why we say do not delay your Salah Subhanallah you don't know if your moment might be before the ending time of that particular Salah Allah Allah knows

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

Don't delay

00:37:12--> 00:37:20

fulfilling it's not an option. It's an obligation you have to you have no option and if you think you have an option Allah it will result in regrets.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our shortcomings

00:37:26--> 00:37:31

when we have other moments where people lose their faith long term

00:37:32--> 00:37:48

say a person gets sick and Ill we have difficulty in society where as soon as someone gets in first person they have to be someone who they claim knows the unseen no no in the unseen. That's your email God. It's literally sold.

00:37:50--> 00:37:53

You've actually sold it for nothing for attachments, love

00:37:54--> 00:37:58

knowing the unseen. Yeah, they told me my sister in law did magic on me.

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

himself. There's a difficulty with this email to start with.

00:38:05--> 00:38:20

No, they're communicating with the gym. Believe me in the gym. I'm making a mockery of everybody. They cannot tell you who did was never ever no ways. If they did, there is a problem with their environment. If you believe them, there is a bigger problem with yours.

00:38:21--> 00:38:41

You cannot do that. shaper makes you destroy your family relation. So every time someone is sick, Brother, you are limping because of what you did last night. And tomorrow morning. You're blaming your sister in law for that. Why? Because she told you that love became careful. That's your Eman loss loss.

00:38:42--> 00:38:43

You cannot do that.

00:38:49--> 00:39:05

So if you have a sickness, like I said, you need to do what is acceptable in Islam in order to help yourself you seek medication you make dua and you constantly perhaps engage in the do as

00:39:06--> 00:39:36

a symptom or even if you're just asking to add in your own language and you're reading perhaps the Quran and you're engaged in Salah crying to Allah subhanho wa Taala to cure you you might want to use as I said different medication, go for some caffeine perhaps may utilize some some raw honey with a little bit of black seed at the same time some dates perhaps the Adra perhaps some olive oil, perhaps zum zum and so on. And you want to use what the Quran says there is Shiva in and what is taught by us

00:39:37--> 00:39:53

and you may also visit the doctor and have some medication and so on constantly made up to that moment inshallah by the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala what you've engaged in is okay, but the minute you start going to the superstitious doctors, they call it a witch doctors.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

A lot of people are doing this and sometimes the witch doctor is given the name of a shake

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

But he's really shocked.

00:40:02--> 00:40:15

He doesn't tell you that sometimes he doesn't know that himself. What about him? It's hard for someone to come and tell you what to claim. And for you to even believe that he knows even a little portion of the unseen he doesn't. He doesn't believe me.

00:40:16--> 00:40:49

And if the gym have helped him arrive at an answer, he's been fooled. Because the genies just lying. Their job is to print family relations all the time. When people have come to me, they say, Well, I was told it's one of your family members. Every time they say that, what nonsense Don't you know the plan of the devil? The devil is the one who wants to break your family. That's why he does it. It's not one of your family members. Those are innocent people. They are the closest to you. Develop your needs with Allah you should learn why the last.

00:40:50--> 00:41:12

So as a result of that little small temporary moment of pleasure where you were so excited finally I've been told who it was as a result of that your family ties broken your link with allies knocked up everything is gone and DB what happens is you still think you're doing something good and you think I'm getting gender but you don't realize I've been involved in what is known as she will not give up.

00:41:14--> 00:41:16

I've associated partners with a lot

00:41:17--> 00:41:52

cheaper and he's happy he's now Matthew and he's gone to someone else. Why he knows this one gonna last out. I succeeded. Shay bond is waiting at every path for me and you He's waiting. He says I will stand in front behind on the size waiting in ambush every little opportunity he gets he's very pounds so be careful. Watch out for him. Look out for him on a daily basis he comes to me and you if you think your day has passed without Shepherd having come to you you have not reflected upon the deep enough to find out how he tried coming today.

00:41:55--> 00:42:36

Lord, Allah subhanho wa Taala purify myself in yourselves. So this is why we say my brothers and sisters his little moments. If you might feel is a pleasurable moment the light can create a lot of disaster. Be careful. Be careful what you do online. Be careful what you do with your mobile phones. Be careful what you do with your relations. Be careful how you dress. Be careful how you work. Be careful where you work. Be careful what you do, be careful of your league with Allah you need to make sure you've developed you need to make sure you've read your Salah you need to make sure you are worried about the next Salah that is that is a quality that will keep you from this small

00:42:36--> 00:42:51

temporary false pleasures that result in crying forever after. Because if you read the Salah, and your mind is already connected to the next one, between the two by the will of Allah you will be protected from a lot in Asia.

00:42:53--> 00:42:58

And when you read the next Salah you worried about the next one, you will be protected again.

00:42:59--> 00:43:33

And if you really think the world is all about enjoying as much as you can, and having as much fun as you can, you've actually lost the sense that you don't know why we did that. You can enjoy within the limits. You can enjoy within the limits. nobody's saying divorce yourself completely from the pleasure of Allah no meaning from something which might be enjoyable within the limits of Allah. Allah says we've given you we've allowed you we know what you want, but we've restricted you follow our restrictions. And I want to end with one final bit of advice. And that is

00:43:34--> 00:43:47

my brothers and sisters. Everything that Allah has made prohibited. He has made it prohibited because of its damaging effects upon us within the dunya first and benefit.

00:43:48--> 00:44:29

So when Allah says this is how I don't think that okay, I might get away with a bit of it never you want. Maybe for a moment you might you know get excited to be happy. If that is wrong. It is wrong in order to protect you your dignity, your deen, your Eman, your contentment, your happiness, your offspring, your family and everything to do with your goodness is protecting so stay away from it. When a boss is dressed like this in a specific way, it is to protect you to raise your rank your dignity to give you contentment, happiness, to protect you from all the evil around you to keep you in a position that you are supposed to be in so that you are not abused and used and so that you are

00:44:29--> 00:44:33

not tampered with so that you are respected that you're

00:44:38--> 00:44:54

sick of the job and then Allah says it is better for them so they are recognized and not abused. They're not harmed. So panela today, a female has been reduced to a sex tool will lie. They want to sell times and they have a naked woman

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

to do with time. commodity a good time.

00:45:01--> 00:45:07

To save a life sometimes she's going to suck for a man to pass by law. Nowadays,

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

the strong ones my sisters will say, brother,

00:45:12--> 00:45:13

Allah make it easy.

00:45:14--> 00:45:19

Allah bless us all. So this is how they've been reduced to an object.

00:45:20--> 00:45:28

Look at those who have accepted Islam from amongst the non Muslims who used to bury tall for a living.

00:45:30--> 00:45:31

I've come across a sister

00:45:34--> 00:45:51

who used literally exactly what I said she used to work for Playboy, she accepted Islam. And she's now properly dressed and she's actually given an interview you might find it on YouTube a lot. And she says a few powerful words you might take a word or two from someone like that. You might learn a thing or two.

00:45:52--> 00:46:06

And we have been blessed by Allah sometimes to be born muslimeen we are abandoning our dress What a shame I always say Allah says we will replace you if you're trying to be like that, we will replace you

00:46:07--> 00:46:08

replacing one by one.

00:46:10--> 00:46:43

My brothers and sisters, anything that is haram is haram in order to protect you and for your goodness and in order to help you achieve contentment in this world. And in order for you to sail through the fear of into paradise, may Allah grant that to us. And anything that is made obligatory and compulsory upon you is only done in order to achieve the same. So your dignity, your focus, your success in the dunya your contentment is through Salah.

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

On and so on.

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

You know Allah says Allah subhana wa Taala

00:47:02--> 00:47:06

those who believe they achieve the calmness of the heart,

00:47:07--> 00:47:13

from the from the reminder of Allah the reminders, the ad cow, the hyena masala

00:47:15--> 00:47:36

you read the child understand its meaning protect yourself from that which is an innovation and that which is association of partnership with Allah in any way see the content but you feel see how happy you become. See your link with Allah develop. Today people develop a link with a human being and they get excited, I noticed that

00:47:38--> 00:47:46

he doesn't even know whether he's going to paradise or not. And what do you think you just since clean laundry clean out in America, he owns Jenga, he will give it to you.

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

cling on to your mega he owns gentlemen, he will give it to you

00:47:55--> 00:47:56

if you click into him

00:47:59--> 00:48:17

so this is why we say whatever is compulsory for your benefit. If you don't understand it, you're like a little child. A little child who's playing with a knife throwing it up and dad says Hey, leave the knife. He puts it down comes down. When dad is not looking for it. Take it again play Hey, what's up, goes back.

00:48:18--> 00:48:41

This guy teaches again, as he throws it up in his eyes last night my Dad Dad. Dad says Didn't I tell you not to play with a knife? We are worse than that child who did that? Why? Because Allah is telling us not to play with things that are haram and we continue playing and the beauty is you cannot hide it from Allah.

00:48:42--> 00:48:54

He knows what you're doing. And you still playing with the knife when your eyes burst one day something worse than an IP in buses when you ask Allah His bus what's going to happen? He was gonna say I didn't I tell you

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

what she

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

has

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

coo coo,

00:49:17--> 00:49:19

COO, COO, coo

00:49:21--> 00:49:22

coo

00:49:32--> 00:49:59

King has caught Kadima to La caffine. In surah Zuma, right at the end Allah says the people of Ghana will be driven to jam in groups when they get to its door the door shall be opened and the gatekeepers of Hellfire will say but didn't the messages from amongst you come to you reciting the basis of Allah and warning you of this day and they will say yes indeed but no

00:50:00--> 00:50:38

What would have happened? They would have not taken heed and therefore they would be punished. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from them. So this message does not come to you from amongst you, warning you reading the verses of Allah reminding you about the signs of Allah and encouraging you to do that which was good warning you of the day that you're going to meet a law the answer is yes, they came, they delivered the message. What did you do about it? Did you still engage in those little temporary pleasures which resulted in long term downfall? Or did you turn back to Allah in Toba? Never lose hope in the mercy of Allah no matter what you've done, no matter what you've done,

00:50:39--> 00:50:51

Allah loves you. And Allah definitely does love you. You are the one who needs to pick that love up by understanding. He's just waiting for me to tell me.

00:50:52--> 00:51:08

repent to Allah. Promise I'm about to do it again. And you do not fall and falter. And if for some reason your foot slips a little bit, immediately pick it up, clean your foot, carry on walking. But that means is if you find yourself faltering slightly this way that way,

00:51:09--> 00:51:50

he cannot engage in Toba and turn back to the path continue walking now must Allah bless us all it's been really a good afternoon this afternoon here in Birmingham, we thank Allah for bringing us together we hope and pray we've taken a thing or two. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us the ability to obey His instruction for indeed, happiness is in the hands of Allah He owns it we cannot seek it through his displeasure. So you cannot see happiness through the displeasure of the owner of happiness you're actually playing a game that is very dangerous if you're doing that the best thing for me and you to do is to turn to Allah Allah granted to myself, I mean, he made this a means of

00:51:50--> 00:51:56

inshallah, our entry into paradise do we meet again, sometimes perhaps in Birmingham, we say it was other level was

00:51:58--> 00:52:00

handy, so panic alone will be handy.
