In non law have fun OMA URI

00:17:20--> 00:17:52

Tyler bless our beloved chef, he's come all the way from Oman for you. And Allahumma barik This is someone that memorize the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala at the age of 14 years old. You see some of us have memorized some songs and different things in our lives, but we forget the book of Allah. And before I go any further I would like to ask you a question. Three questions you already know this. Everywhere I go, I have to ask this question. And I want the roof of this place to come down in sha Allah and your flat Are you ready? Yeah.

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

Why don't you want person so are you ready?

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

The first question is, who's your lone

00:18:02--> 00:18:09

star against Oregon? I wanted to echo food the shoes of Manchester Inshallah, who's your your

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

ways your.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

And who's your Prophet

00:18:17--> 00:18:33

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but their respective brothers and sisters, for those of you die here. For those of you that are at home, I'm going to ask that same question again. But I want every single one of you to close your mouth. And I want you to answer while your mouth is closed. Who's your Lord?

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

Where is your dean?

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

And who is your prophet?

00:18:41--> 00:19:24

And this is the situation we're in today. In this day and age, where if we really believed in the WHO IS our Lord, Who is Allah? Who wears our deen, which is Islam, and who's our Prophet, which is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we will live by the same way. We are said the first time by every single one of us we have this grudge against one another. We're sick and tired of this. Every single bug or sister that we know of Allah and has got beef with one another. We need to put this aside where Muslims, our actions, our behavior and our sins has an impact on every single muscle out there. I'm sick and tired of Muslims bashing each other day in day out. Go up. Be

00:19:24--> 00:19:38

a Muslim. No way it takes to be a Muslim. We're sick and tired of this. Oh, you know, and some of us we live by this green card like we are going to get to Jana. One more Hello IBM. We're far from that.

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

We need to change our ways, the chain stores today. You probably had an intention to not even call me today. rectify your intention. Inshallah. Will you walk away from this event? to better yourself in every aspect. Someone asked me a question or one of my events. And he said yeah, amen. What made you fall in love with the Quran?

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

I'm gonna be honest with you. I fell in love with the Quran, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because he was described as a walk in Quran. The moment I fell in love with the Prophet, this is something that you don't need to understand what wherever the Quran touches, blesses. The Quran came down on a month, it became the month of Ramadan. It became the best month of the year. The Quran came on the day later to cause it became the best of mice during that month. The Quran says the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was allocated to him, know me as a prophet by him. What did he do? It made him become the best of creation.

00:20:42--> 00:20:56

And this is your profit. This is why Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I understand we live in the West. And you know, while while we live in the West, we have watered down the Islam to benefit our desires.

00:20:57--> 00:21:42

You see the tie between say, they said, they said that Allah subhanaw taala created the angels with intellect. And Allah subhanaw taala created the animals with desires. And also Allah subhanaw taala created the sun, who both the intellect and the desires, if we follow our desires, that's going to get us become to the low of the low love to animals, any desire that takes you away from the book of Allah. And he decided that this pleases Allah, any desire that takes you away from disobeying Allah, I understand you're going to be as low as the animals. But there are certain desires that we have, it's okay. We need to the desire to eat in order for us to survive the desire to sleep, in order for

00:21:42--> 00:22:26

us to function day in and day out. But if those desires that we do on a daily basis, that we fall into sin, such as drugs, such as not establishing the basics of Islam, such as being in Haram relationship Wallahi, I understand is difficult. But it's easy for you to complete half of your deen you're making it difficult for yourselves. And those that follow their desires that's bringing them closer to Allah and following the interior that brings them closer to Allah, understand you're gonna be as high as the melodica you're gonna be on the same level as the angels if not even above them. So ask yourself or Musume why is it that every single one of us are playing this victim mentality,

00:22:27--> 00:22:49

I'm speaking for the youth. I'm speaking for those that are not practicing the deen of Allah probably. Again, I fall into space of J Lea on a daily basis on a weekly basis we all do. Sometimes we slip up with our language, sometimes with our behavior, sometimes with our actions and our execution our man is but we need to change our ways. Look at what's happening to the people of full steam.

00:22:51--> 00:23:15

They we may not be there with them. But while Hamdulillah we are there with them here in sha Allah in spirit and at the same time they in our eyes, understand this. There's one idea that comes to mind as beloved to me and in the Quran. And this is from Surah Yusuf and wallah he is every single sister or brother or father or uncle or mother or auntie

00:23:16--> 00:24:00

practices this idea to the best of their abilities. Understand this, you're gonna fall into a better position financially, physically, verbally, mentally, you name it, Allah subhanaw taala will help you out. This is something that my mom told me and the is Bismillah R Rahman Rahim in high school Betsy was knee Illallah they only complained of my grief or my worries to Allah. Haven't you been there all day system? Haven't you been there all day proper? Where it's come to a times where you Oh, pull up to your best friend. You told them about your childhood, your tribulations? You told them about your struggle. And what do they do? They share your secrets with other people to laugh at

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

you. Haven't you been there? Where you trusted a brother? You trusted your sister. You said Alia salaam was betrayed by his own brothers. So you think me and you're not gonna get betrayed? Of course we are. But there's one thing that brings us comfort in this world. It's understanding that the only company we have in the sloth is the company of Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't need no friends. I don't need no family. Whoever I attached my heart to other than Allah will always go back to Allah subhanaw taala I attached my heart to my mum. overly attached my heart to my mum. Then I became to realize Yeah, amen. That everything belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala so when death came

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

knocking on her door, Allah returned back to him and ask you my dear respected system, brother, one day doors gonna come a knockin for you. You go ask yourself, this Allah subhanho wa Taala happy with me. Have a memorize the Quran

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

and have implemented it. The Companions Radi Allahu Allah when they used to read the Quran, when they used to do that you didn't used to go any further until they implement every single wire. This time you can pick and choose. Islam is not based on your emotions.

00:25:19--> 00:26:04

Islam is based on what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has allocated for this ummah. There was many prophets that came before us, and many prophets that came before us had their own book. But the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam got gifted and honored with this book of Allah subhanho wa taala. Are we not honored to have a Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, as our Prophet are we you know on it before every single creation that came before us, we will enter agenda before them. It's just no no. Because as long as you honor it's not your status in society. Islam gives you a dignity. Islam gives you a status and best believe if you go by the law of Allah subhanaw taala you will promise gender

00:26:05--> 00:26:48

something as basic as a shedule Allah, Allah and Allah, you pray your five daily prayers, you force your monthly I mean show you first your month of Ramadan, you establish your circle, which is 2.5% of your wealth. There's brothers and sisters fighting about how much they're gonna give it to God. I've been there I've seen it. Brother has 140 grand to pay for construction site. The moment it came to give us a cat because I don't want to give it I'd rather pay for my house in this dunya 2.5% And the last is your hedge. You follow by these you will understand you will go a long way in sha Allah Tala. Now I'm gonna ask you my dear respected brother and sister.

00:26:49--> 00:27:22

Has Islam ever let you down? Has the Quran ever let you down? And how many music songs have we listened to? For the man that listen to Drew hip hop, whatever it may be? How many times do we listen to these friends and we get that little buzz. But when we listen to the words of Allah subhanaw taala it's a ripple effect throughout the week, throughout the days throughout the mumps, but we've neglected the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala we've been neglected the only thing in order for us to have a connection with Allah is the book.

00:27:24--> 00:27:51

Our actions yesterday Hamdulillah I was able to yesterday Hamdulillah we pray five times a day. And for those of you that don't pray one law here, I'm not here to let you down. I want every single one of you to meet me in Jannah and if you don't see me and Jonathan asked about me, maybe he takes you to ask about me he knew that for me to go to gender inshallah. But think about this. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the difference between us and the non believers, the salah.

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

How many of us neglect and delay the Salah.

00:27:57--> 00:28:36

So many of us why I remember when I was in Denmark, there was a brother that came to me, he goes to me have worked in this field because he works in the airport. He said for years, I didn't pray. I used to go home and I used to join all my salons together. But he said after coming to, we did a talk in, in Denmark. He said the very next day I went to I went to work, and I started telling my boss it's time for me to press on out the door. It's time for me to pray. So that was awesome. He said one law he in years of my life that I've worked with him the same boss, the moment I started doing a show and showing me more love and respect.

00:28:37--> 00:28:51

You see what happens when you put Allah subhanaw taala. First, when you prioritize Allah subhanho wa Taala first, I understand that they respect your sister, or brother, we live in the West, there is a struggle, the struggle is that every single thing is attacking Islam.

00:28:53--> 00:29:35

What's the best way for you to show everyone that you come across and that you don't come across that Islam it is a gifted and honored religion to follow. It's through your actions. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu I never said it is upon them. It's from a Muslim That doesn't concern himself in friends that know is former Muslim that doesn't get himself involved in things that doesn't concern you. How many of us see videos on Tiktok on Instagram and Facebook and everybody likes to make a comment. Everybody likes to make a comment based on their emotions. Let me make it clear to you brother or sister. I couldn't give a damn be hurt. If I say something if the next chef says

00:29:35--> 00:29:45

something whoever says if your feelings get hurt, we don't care. We speak as the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said speak even if it's against yourself, speak the truth.

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

If you're hurting, I'm hurting. We're here as one. He also described his OMA as one body. If you must, Sister You, my brothers. Understand I'm affected if they're almost breathing with

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

All bleeding. You already see what's happening. It is time for us to make a change. Walleye the best way I fell in love with the Quran was through the prophet muhammad sallallahu there was a read about his struggles. This is a man that when he was born, he never even had a father. This is a man that lost his mother as six years old. So don't tell me, wherever your father or mother goes back with this backwards mentality coming from back home and their culture by sticking on you and pulling you down. You still have to have somebody in German, a beautiful patience. I've had Muslims that have just come to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and have told me I still have to work what ways can

00:30:45--> 00:31:03

I do in order for my parents to become a Muslim? I told them something simple. What you need to do is make Dawa come out of your speech, your actions and your character. They don't even need to read the book of Allah. First and foremost, let your actions be the biggest Allah.

00:31:04--> 00:31:32

You see, were Muslim by default. We will pull up in this world. Our families are Muslim. So we naturally by default, we follow their ways. I remember there was a time in my life when I used to play Salah because he was a habit. Because I was too young. I need to play the silicosis a habit. Then he came to a realization when I went to prison, I realized the beauty, the tranquility, the piece that I got from praying.

00:31:33--> 00:31:41

And we'll hamdulillah once I started doing that every single Salah that we pray should be our last salah.

00:31:42--> 00:32:09

I know my sisters are struggling with hijab, but we don't put them down. And some brothers want to go out of their way by putting them down. Baba. What about the hijab of the brothers, your characters, your hijab, your hours, your hijab, your education, your manners is your hijab, so don't ever get onto sisters because Wallahi witness sisters on the road were giving Dawa that to establish the hijab, and they know bear Quran

00:32:10--> 00:32:21

to me and you put together I know sisters that finished the Quran. Yes, they may not wear or practice the Empire, but they finished the Quran every three days.

00:32:22--> 00:32:27

But when was the last time we as men finish to Quran. We're so busy pointing fingers at people.

00:32:28--> 00:33:11

But we have to sometimes judge by what is apparent, or what is apparent. Islam has been kicked to the side. Islam has become secondary. We need to make Islam our priority. We need to make the book of Allah subhanaw taala our priority. We need to make sure that wherever we do insha Allah to Allah, to please Allah to our best of our abilities. And if you're struggling, keep that struggle between yourself and Allah in school with the waters Neal Allah, that you only complain of your grief and your worries to Allah. And this is what you need to do sha Allah Allah to Allah, this is just a quick points for me. And if I've ever heard any of you then forgive me for the sake of Allah. And if

00:33:11--> 00:33:19

you don't forgive me then go to the supermarket and get yourself some paracetamol and make sure aids your pain God, I'm above it.

00:33:20--> 00:33:43

Next person I would like to bring up onto stage in Sharla, which is I love the field he's in he's the biggest data organization that I know I era, I will shake up the ramen green. I love the fact that when they go when they go to the villages, and we see hundreds of people taking their shahada is because of these people what they do on the ground. So our beloved chef Abdul Rahman green

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

Salam aleikum,

00:34:01--> 00:34:21

Allahu Akbar, hamdulillah Masha Allah. Brothers and sisters 30 years ago, more than 30 years ago, I used to go down to speak his corner, stand up there on a soapbox, and shout and scream and do my best to convince people of la ilaha illAllah.

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

And from there, I started going around the world giving talks and lectures, and inviting people to Islam. But it was just me going around giving talks and lectures. But I always had this dream I had this idea that we could have an organization, a group of people who came together to make the word of Allah subhanaw taala, the highest to call people who are not yet Muslim, to Islam because mashallah the Dow and the tarbiyah and their slack for the Muslims was there but where was the Dow

00:35:00--> 00:35:52

Are to non Muslims and as someone myself, obviously who had converted to Islam, I felt this very strongly. I felt this burning need to convey this message of la ilaha illAllah. To those people who have not yet heard it 15 years later Alhamdulillah through the permission of Allah, as 15 years ago now, an opportunity opened and we started an organization, the Islamic education and research Academy. Well, we call it AI era Subhanallah in the beginning, we were just going around the misogyny in this country, doing a little course on how to give dower to non Muslims. But today brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah we can say something amazing after 15 years of Hanalei, it's been

00:35:52--> 00:36:48

a transformation. We're now in six continents, we are firmly established in 33 countries, we have over 400 full time paid to arch across the world, and over 1000 volunteers. Last year, Alhamdulillah 65,000, people took shahada with us, and they're not token shahada as brothers and sisters, it's not difficult to get someone to say La Ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, honestly, it's not really that hard. What is really hard and what is really challenging, is making sure that those people once they actually take the shahada, once they actually become Muslim, they stay Muslim. And in fact, a huge amount of our energy and our effort goes into training and teaching the new Muslims

00:36:48--> 00:37:11

Alhamdulillah so that they have a firm grasp upon their Deen. Sometimes we stay with them, in their villages, in their towns, wherever it may be for two weeks, sometimes up to two months or even longer. That is what our do our do sometimes Subhanallah camping and sleeping in tents, so that they can teach the people the basics of their religion.

00:37:13--> 00:38:06

Alhamdulillah brothers and sisters, we are transforming lives and transforming communities. In the future in sha Allah, the near future, we really hope to be aiming by next year to be getting 125,000 shahada is just last month, we sort of reached what we could call a benchmark SubhanAllah. In one month, we had 10,000 shahada, Allahu Akbar Alhamdulillah and our aim, this is our objective by 2030. Our objective is to be getting 1 million shahada is in 2030 and we're going to Inshallah, keep increasing after that. Mashallah, yes, brothers and sisters, there are 1.6 billion Muslims on the earth, but there are still two thirds of humanity who have not heard this message of la ilaha

00:38:06--> 00:38:39

illAllah. And we have to understand that we are motivated in either era by the vision of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet gave us a vision he gave us an eye he told us and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, he is the one who is to be believed when the Prophet told us something 100% It is going to happen. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that Islam will enter every home, every city, every town, every country, every village,

00:38:40--> 00:39:27

every home, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. He said that even if the home is made of mud or hair, there will be a Muslim. Inside. This is what the Prophet said, This is the meaning of what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as far as the night and day reached this religion will reach and what time brothers and sisters in the history of humanity, what time is better than this time, a time when you can pick up your phone, and you can be talking to someone on the other end of the planet, you can get in an aeroplane And subhanAllah you can fly across the world in in 24 hours, 36 hours, probably in three days, you could reach the most remote as plot parts of this planet. So we

00:39:27--> 00:40:00

have this opportunity today unprecedented in human history, to carry this message, this message that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he spent his life this message for which the prophets suffered for to spread this message and I want to remind you brothers and sisters, in this brief moment I have of the hardest day do you know what was the prophet Muhammad's hardest day? When they asked the Prophet? What was your hardest day? And you think about all the difficult

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

In the hardships the Prophet went through sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said my hardest day was the day entire life, the day when he went to give dower to the people of type, and they turned him away. They turned him away they rejected him. Even according to some of the books of Sera, the prophet knocked on every single door, no one even wanted to talk to him. And when he left, the leaders told the children to throw stones and the Prophet salaallah They were pelting Rasulillah with stones and he was bleeding, bleeding so much that his sandals were sticking to his feet. And when he reached the bottom of the mountain, Subhan, Allah Gibreel came to him and said, If you give

00:40:43--> 00:40:53

the word, we will order the angels of the mountains to crust crush this town. And the Prophet said no, maybe some of their descendants will become Muslim.

00:40:55--> 00:41:28

This was the task of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this was the job of all of the Gambia to convey this message of Leia ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, and where are you? Oh, of Muhammad. Where are you when it comes to passing this message of Islam?

So at least I can hear some people in the audience once all Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala Bucha in Saudi or silly Emery Wa Laqad that Amelia Sani of Cabo Cali so the Chanukah La La Mulana in

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

Mr. Hollom tena in Naka Antara Alima Hakeem My dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam, may Allah subhanaw taala bless you and reward you for coming out

00:45:11--> 00:45:21

during this very windy and rainy and cold weather, and may Allah subhanaw taala make every step you have taken to this place in the scale of your good deeds. I mean our blood I mean,

00:45:23--> 00:45:35

how many of you here my brothers and sisters and by show of hands, I'll try to squeeze my eyes to see if there are hands in the audience, or how many people here the first thing in the morning when you wake up the first thing in the morning?

00:45:37--> 00:45:41

You check your phone, just raise your hand. Be honest, don't worry, Mufti mink is not here.

00:45:43--> 00:45:56

All right. How many of us are still into watching TV series sitcom movies, la Hakuba. In your in your job.

00:45:59--> 00:46:14

Today I wanted to talk about addiction as brother Amon mentioned, but I also wanted to bring to your attention something very interesting and that is the Quran. The Word of Allah subhanaw taala is such an amazing

00:46:15--> 00:46:26

book that Allah subhanaw taala revealed for our guidance and the more you read of the same thing, the more insights and the more lessons you will deduce.

00:46:27--> 00:46:51

Brother Iman just mentioned about Surah Yusuf and he was talking about the profit use of any struggle. Today I will use the same Surah In sha Allah to deduce seven lessons that maybe can help those people who are addicted to the devices addicted to gaming anyone into gaming here raise your hand anyone into gaming don't worry about it moved he's not here don't worry. Why are you guys afraid?

00:46:53--> 00:46:56

Anyone into social media of course everyone.

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

Anyone into

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

what is the most popular platform in the UK social media like why?

00:47:06--> 00:47:29

Tick tock you guys stick talking a lot. Anyone into Insta haram? I mean Instagram is his lungs that Allah protect the soul yellow. So maybe those seven traits of Prophet use of Allah Islam, as described in the Quran perhaps will offer some insight to tame our desires.

00:47:33--> 00:47:37

to tame our desires and our wants, because human beings there is no end

00:47:39--> 00:48:13

to our desires and what we wanted to do in life and sometimes that impact the main purpose of our existence and that is to worship Allah subhanho wa taala. As Allah mentioned, the Quran Rama halacha tool Jin will insert il Alia who don't have not created Jen spiritual beings do mankind except to worship me we were born to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala but along the journey of life, many things can distract us and take us farther away from that, which Allah subhanaw taala created this fall.

00:48:14--> 00:48:39

So what is the first lesson inshallah that I wanted to share with you today? Number one, the courage to reach out elders, mentors, family members, the courage to reach out to those people who know who know more. Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, when he saw that dream he reached out to his father and he mentioned

00:48:40--> 00:48:43

if Allah Yusuf Ali Abbey here

00:48:46--> 00:48:54

Nero eight to a ha Darshan can come in near it to our Hadassah account

00:48:55--> 00:49:05

was chanson one comma or youtube please add in all my father, I have seen at least 11 stars

00:49:07--> 00:49:50

and the moon and the sun and the moon. I've seen them prostrating to me. Use of Ra's Salam at a very young age, he realized that he don't have enough experience to understand the interpretation of the dream. And as a result he went to his father and his father guided him through. And this is one of the things that many people who are stuck with their addictions whether you are addicted to social media, or online shopping, or gaming or even pornography, we don't have the courage to reach out to people and tell them help us because of the shame and the guilt that we carry. Sometimes when we are addicted to these vices, the prophets Allah Allah has sell them in a very authentic narration A man

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

came to him, it was narrated that the man came to him in the presence of other companions and he said to him, ya rasool Allah, Yvan Lee busy

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

No, all messenger of Allah allow me to commit Zina. Allow me to commit adultery. Can you imagine? If any of us would go to any imam in any Masjid in any place on planet Earth and ask him for something

00:50:16--> 00:50:27

like this? What will happen to us? What would be the reaction of this Imam? What would be the reaction of the community? But because the prophets Allah, Allah is Salem open that space,

00:50:29--> 00:50:32

that safe zone for people to come forward

00:50:33--> 00:51:16

and inquire about their struggles. The man didn't find it heavy, or didn't feel ashamed to come until the process said look, I'm stuck with this addiction. give me permission to commit it and the prophets Allah Allah Allah Salah did not rebuke the man he didn't even say haram in that context in the context of that story. He didn't even tell the man that this is haram, but rather because he knew he knew that the man knew that it is haram and he's not coming to know whether it's halal or haram anyway, he's coming to find a solution. In this one, we are lacking our community. We talk a lot about what is halal and what is haram. But we don't facilitate some methodologies and strategies

00:51:16--> 00:51:21

for people who are stuck with haram activities and they don't know how to get out of it.

00:51:23--> 00:51:26

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him questions after questions

00:51:27--> 00:51:59

to make him realize on his own that he was asking about something really awful. Do you want this to happen to your mum? Do you want this to happen to your sister to your daughter to your aunt and the man in every question would say, No, no, no. Then the Prophet SAW Selim concluded other people to don't like this to happen to the mothers, sisters, to the daughters and so on. And the Prophet SAW Selim prayed for the man ya allah purifies his heart and protect his chastity.

00:52:00--> 00:52:34

So my brothers, my sisters in Islam, lesson number one from Surah two so from the Quran, the book of Allah subhanaw taala is to reach out for help when you need reach out for guidance when you need number two, avoid isolation. Avoid loneliness, addiction loves isolation. Once you are behind closed doors, you are a loser. If you are addicted to any vices on the internet, specially you see the brother's of use of he said called hula inocula. Who knows BA

00:52:35--> 00:53:07

in it Allah has room. They said to the father that if the wolf would eat our brothers while we are groups while we are, you know, a clan, strong people around him, then we are definitely losers. But the lesson is when use of Allah is Salam was alone around his envious brothers he was thrown in the well. Later on, he learned from this lesson when he was alone with a beautiful lady who was seducing him for haram.

00:53:08--> 00:53:25

This time, he ran away to the opposite direction and as we will describe in a little while later, but in our context today, my brothers and sisters in STEM, the one thing that we are really addicted to and no exception here is our cell phones.

00:53:27--> 00:54:14

Is our cell phones. Try to now think about it. Would you like to be attached to the Quran to the book of Allah subhanaw taala which you have come and attended an entire conference about the divine inspiration of Allah subhanaw taala you came here to learn about the Quran? Would you rather be attached to the Quran every morning instead of touching your phone and and go through you know, endless posts on your social media or read the Quran for a little while? And then go on check your emails and check other news on your devices. Whether Would you rather be addicted to your phone or attached to the Quran? And the reason I use two different words is that any addiction, by definition

00:54:14--> 00:54:59

is a negative thing. So whatever you're addicted to this addiction is impactful and it has an impact on your very strong the structure of your brain. Any addiction, but attachment. Not necessarily so so instead of saying I'm addicted to the Quran, say I'm attached to the Quran, instead of addicted to the masjid attached to the masjid, believe it or not even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam make a distinction between both words in the Hadith about the seven people who will be sheltered under the shade of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, the prophets are selling Sidoarjo lon tan boo Mohalla upon Bill massages and a man whose heart is attached to the masjid he did not

00:54:59--> 00:55:00

use the word

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

Addiction here. But in another narration the Prophet SAW Selim talked about min hum a person who is addicted to alcohol he made clear distinction because addiction is always harmful. We're attachment is not necessarily so. So avoid isolation or modern Hatha Raja Allah Allah He said Allah you can build your ma while he acamol Forca stick to the congregation stick to the group's and beware of being divided and being alone. Famous Cython Allah Allah, wa who I mean Al is Nene Abba for indeed shaitan is always with the individual. And when shaitan is around you, he's not there to keep you entertain. Or to offer you some barbecue he's there to trap you into sin, to drag you into haram.

00:55:50--> 00:55:57

Famous cytomx Allah had Cython is always with the individual who I mean at least Nene and he is farther away from the two

00:55:58--> 00:56:06

once you are with the righteous companies shaitan will never win that battle. Number three my brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:56:07--> 00:56:10

judgment and knowledge,

00:56:11--> 00:56:36

powerful tools to protect you against temptations is to increase your knowledge about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala and as a result, Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless you with the right judgment to make the right decision in the right time. Allah will grant you that wisdom Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, when Allah Allah Allah Allah should there who tell you now hookman ye Alma.

00:56:38--> 00:56:47

And when you reach an age of of maturity, we granted him we We provided him with the right judgment and knowledge

00:56:48--> 00:57:27

worker that he cannot have sin and Allah concluded the ayah by saying and this is the way how we reward those who do good. So in order for you to be able to accumulate knowledge and reach out to that level of wisdom you need to start doing righteous actions, while Astra in El in Santa Fe hoster Elana Dena Amma know what you saw they had, by the token of time, all of us My Brothers and Sisters in Islam are in a state of loss. By default, we are in a state of loss. If we enter Jannah it's by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala not because you're smart.

00:57:29--> 00:57:52

Elana Dena M and who except those who have faith who believed in Allah subhanaw taala while I'm you saw the heart and do righteous deeds May Allah make us among them, I mean on a banana mean. Number four, my brothers and sisters in Islam, run to Allah subhanho wa Taala don't ever give up on Allah Boulia Abadi Alladhina Surah four

00:57:53--> 00:58:04

Fuson Latin to me Rahmatullah in Allah Hi, I'm fooled Zhu Uber Jamia in

00:58:05--> 00:58:24

no. Foreign Rahim. Tell them Oh Mohammed, tell my servants who have transgressed against themselves day and night. Tell them despair, not from the Mercy of Allah for Allah forgive all sins, minor or major doesn't matter to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:58:26--> 00:58:40

They say last year Alton ma Israr, Allah Kabir Alton Ma, is the four minor sins are no longer considered or looked at by Allah as minor if you insist on committing them.

00:58:42--> 00:59:11

And major sins are no longer considered major by Allah subhanho wa Taala with your constant is the fall with your constant return to Allah subhanho wa taala. So run to Allah when use of Allah is Salam was seduced by Mr. Salas. He's a beautiful and a lady of authority. He says what color ma the law I see the protection of Allah now. I have no one to run to back to Allah Subhana Allah doll.

00:59:12--> 00:59:18

So don't ever think that just because you have seen again and again, now Allah doesn't love you.

00:59:20--> 00:59:27

Don't think ever that Allah has given up on you, Allah will never get bored unless you become bored.

00:59:28--> 00:59:41

I have been counseling people are addicted to this filth for many, many years, believe it or not my brothers and sisters in Islam, many of them have left Islam and I'm not I'm not worried about

00:59:43--> 01:00:00

saying that publicly because it is the truth and it is happening on a pace that is so scary. Why is that so because they are addicted. And then they repent and then they relapse of repent. And then the they've been into that vicious cycle for years and years and

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

years until they have reached a conclusion or the head of Allah. Allah is not there.

01:00:05--> 01:00:42

Don't ever give up on Allah so long as you're breathing, there is a reason for it. Allah is giving you an opportunity to run to him before it is too late. Number four, my brothers and sisters in Islam run away. So run to Allah by seeking his help and aid, but also run away from any place where the sins usually are committed. You know the cycle already. Once you are in your bedroom, your cell phones next to you, your laptop is next to you. Your internet data is free is available, you know it's coming. You know the cycle.

01:00:43--> 01:00:53

So break that cycle before you fall back again and then regret it. The Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, he was locked in a room.

01:00:54--> 01:01:04

He was he was locked in a room by this lady. While Alacati lab lab Allah subhanaw taala said she locked the door she put guards outside, no one exits, no one come in.

01:01:06--> 01:01:17

And then she told him what he did, like I'm all yours. How many men in the room? We resist some such temptation. How many men in the room will say no to such shaitan

01:01:19--> 01:01:49

was Starbuck called Bab he ran away from her in that small room. I was reading this surah again and again every time I would ask myself, where was Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam running to where was he running to small room all locked Where were you running to? I do not care. Wherever the sin is about to commit, I am not here. I have to run to the opposite direction. He ran to the opposite direction to a point that she ripped off his shirt from behind.

01:01:51--> 01:02:17

Leave your room, open the door, shut your phones in the night, put it outside away from your bedroom, you know the cycle, break it. And in sha Allah Allah Allah you will be able to break free from these vices in sha Allah number six, something very important. Don't ever my brothers and sisters in STEM, use your beauty or your good look, to trap people or to drag people into haram.

01:02:18--> 01:02:37

Don't ever think that because Allah has given you something that can attract others. You could use it in your advanced you know in your advantage, what I add to Billa and commit the Haram Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, according to one narration, he was given half of the beauty of the universe. This how handsome he was.

01:02:39--> 01:02:43

Yet he did not use this to commit haram Allah, Allah.

01:02:45--> 01:03:14

He did not in fact, all the ladies that were invited to look at him, they said, Malecon Kareem, this man is an angel. He's not a human being. Yet he never used that to commit haram Allah if Allah has given you something, use it to serve the deen of Allah subhanaw taala Lord Your gaze Allah said Khalil Momineen a dome and I besought him Why follow Furuya home tell to the believing men to lower your gaze when you talk to the opposite gender

01:03:16--> 01:03:18

Be careful Don't just stare freely

01:03:19--> 01:03:49

and don't talk unnecessarily also same apply to the sisters will call mommy Naughty Dog nominal the sorry hint No, I have no furu Jehan, there is a connection between lowering the gaze and protecting your private parts and your chastity. That's what Allah says in the Quran. Tell to the believing men law your gaze as a result your chest that you will be protected. Because the eyes that stare at that which is haram, the prophets are certain describe it as an arrow from the arrows of shaitan.

01:03:50--> 01:04:04

So stay away don't ever look at the beauty of others. And don't ever use your own beauty to drag people to haram and final point that I want to share with you in sha Allah Allah, my brothers and sisters in Islam, restrict yourself.

01:04:05--> 01:04:31

restrict yourself instead of dying in a vicious cycle of sinful activities. restrict yourself for a year for to seek out help, as we said earlier, but also restrict yourself. What do I mean by that? Islam had given us a beautiful system. Can anyone tell me why in Ramadan, all of a sudden, from dawn to sunset, water became her haram.

01:04:33--> 01:04:59

The very water that we drink and we take for granted during the month of Ramadan from dawn to sunset becomes haram for you, your very wife and husband from dawn to sunset becomes haram for you. Why Allah is doing this to us to restrict you to train you to tame your desires so that when you stand later on in front of any haram activities, it will be easy for you to say no. But whenever you desire

01:05:00--> 01:05:40

Something you go for it are we animals are Adam Allah may Allah protect us all Yarrabah May Allah enable us to control these desires I mean Albert alanine or the Hata bruh the Allah Allah once was walking in he saw one of the companions getting a piece of meat on his shoulder. And he told him what is it that you're carrying? You said a piece of meat that I desired it yeah Amirul mumineen I decided, oh, you know leader of the believers, he said our CoolerMaster hater. staright isn't that every time you desire something, you go for it. We have to restrict ourselves and tame our desires. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam even use of Alayhis Salam, they threatened him.

01:05:42--> 01:05:49

They threatened him that if he if you do not comply with the Haram with the inquiry of committing Zina, you will be thrown in jail

01:05:50--> 01:06:03

called up besieging or Habibollah me mad own any he said to Allah Ya Allah Oh my lord bear witness that prison is more beloved to my heart than what they are inviting me to.

01:06:04--> 01:06:11

I'd rather be be thrown behind bars than committing haram Abdullah has ever sent me.

01:06:12--> 01:07:01

But only Allah Anwar law, one of the people who fought against the Roman Empire during the era of all of the Hatano, the Allah Allah and he was taking captive he and 300 of the companions. They were trying to convert them to Christianity. And he started with the leader of the live no deficit me and he refused and refused and he show how stubborn he is. He said I will never leave the religion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for a blinking of an eye. This how tough how strong he was how steadfast he was the sin after him in his cell, a prostitute the new and once you've committed Zina, he's broken. He ran away from her my brothers, my sisters in STEM until she felt tired, she left the

01:07:01--> 01:07:20

cell and she said he is a rock. This is what we need to develop in our lives. My brothers and sisters in STEM and the real life example that we have today that taught us all faith in action, resilience in action. The people of Gaza, the people of Palestine

01:07:23--> 01:07:30

will lie we never imagined in our existence that we'll see that we will see little kids

01:07:33--> 01:07:52

little kids supporting each other supporting the people in Palestine giving them shahada before they die. We never seen this. We never thought that we will see this we've ever seen in our existence. A mother screaming from far distance, saying my four kids are on fire. We've never seen

01:07:53--> 01:08:00

a father battling his own all children say inshallah we met you to hold it ain This is Faith in Action.

01:08:02--> 01:08:40

And if we want to bring Palestine back, we need to work on ourselves. There is no nation that will ever revive with any addictive behavior that I just mentioned briefly today. May Allah protect us all from these vices. May Allah subhanaw taala grant victory to our brothers and sisters in Palestine. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bring back al Masjid Al Aqsa to those who deserve it. The Arab Palestinians Amenia Abdullah alameen and before I leave the stage my brothers my sisters and SNAM I took permission from my dear brother Yacine and organizers that I want to say something and I want you to repeat after me Are we ready inshallah.

01:13:27--> 01:14:15

May Allah subhanahu wa taala reward you for your attendance and reward the organizers of this event? May Allah subhanahu wa taala grantee success and goodness in this life and in the afterlife. I want you at the very beginning, deep within your heart to see and hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah, that Allah subhanahu wa taala may do Muslims. And then you see another Alhamdulillah deep from within your heart that Allah azza wa jal made you Muslims from Ummah to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because I tell you something, it is always good to be a Muslim, whether you existed in the time of Adam Alayhis Salam, or Ibrahim alayhi salam, or at the time of Musa or ISA Allah, Hema Salam. But

01:14:15--> 01:14:59

the very best time in all of history to be a Muslim is to be a Muslim in on mutton Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is because Allah subhanho wa Taala said, couldn't hire or Murthy No, nurse, you were the best of nations to ever exist and come out and be produced to mankind and omit the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are the first people to enter the paradise Bismillah Alhamdulillah that we in our time in where it is the best to be a Muslim. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, of course, the conference and the event is about the Quran. And I want what I wanted to share with you in a few minutes. You

01:15:00--> 01:15:56

is how Surah Al Fatiha the greatest surah in the Quran, how consumed at al Fatiha cure our anxiety, depression and distress, especially in this time where we are witnessing injustice and oppression and with inflation on the rise, and with tests and tribulations and calamities, each and every single one of us here has some sort of concern and worry that is bothering him in his life. And did you know that Surah Al Fatiha offers a cure and a protection from these matters? This is what I want to share with you. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Allah subhanahu wa taala refers to the Quran as a Shiva as a healer and a cure Allah azza wa jal Li says, We're known as zoom in on Poornima who has

01:15:56--> 01:16:49

she felt a little more meaning. He said we seem down the Quran as a healer and a cure and a mercy for mankind. And more specifically, Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Yeah, you are Nance Khadija Koumori ever to become where she will limit a few sudo will, most specifically Allah subhanahu wa taala describe the Quran as a cure and a healer for what is in the chest. And that is the heart. And you know, this is where the dots are. This is where designers are. This is where ignorance is. This is where darkness is. This is where arrogance and hypocrisy and jealousy and hatred is this is where depression is and sadness and anxiety and worry is and so the Quran is a Schieffer for what is

01:16:49--> 01:17:31

inside the chest. It is a shifa for what is happening inside of the heart. Allah subhanahu wa taala referred to the Quran as a Shiva, not the word. The word is medicine. She is a healer and a cure. And the difference is that medicine sometimes can work other times it doesn't work. But she is always 100% it heals and it cures and Quran is not a medicine. And Quran is a treatment. It is a Shiva from Allah subhanahu wa taala until the end of times, my brothers and sisters in Islam.

01:17:33--> 01:18:16

Al Fatiha is also known as a share fear, the cure the healer. And that is because of an incident that happened with a companion by the name of Abu Saeed and Audrey, he alongside other companions, they were traveling, and they arrived to a town and they requested food from the townspeople and the townspeople refuse to feed them. And at the same time, their master was stung by a scorpion or a snake or a spider, whatever it is. So they tried to cure him. They tried to heal him and offer medicine nothing was working. So they went to those companions that they refuse to feed. And they said to them, please, we've tried everything with our master, and nothing has healed him up. Do you

01:18:16--> 01:18:37

have anything? So I was sorry that he said I have something. But I will not offer it to your master until you pay us a tribute for our work and what we're about to do. So they agreed to give them a flock of sheep. And I'm sorry, the hobo you went to this man, and he was leaving their venom in his body about to die.

01:18:38--> 01:18:54

So I will say the laundry. He blew onto this bite onto the wound, and he began to read surah two and hamdulillah you're blind I mean, until he reached the end of it. The hadith mentions for call Magana. nowship Amin

01:18:55--> 01:19:43

from Paula Graham, she won't be he won't be here forever. He got up so nothing has happened to him. He got up with absolutely no pain and injury with him. Allahu Akbar. And Quran was a physical cure for this man for his ailment and illness. And it is also a spiritual cure as well, if not a year Mahima Allah He said, I sat in Makkah for a while, and I would get sick, and I did not find any doctor or any medicine. So I would treat myself with Surah Al Fatiha and I found an amazing, incredible effect for it. And anyone around me who complained of sickness and illness, I would prescribe for him to read surah Al Fatiha and they would also find incredible benefit amazing for

01:19:43--> 01:20:00

this. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. I want to make a point but listen to this very carefully. In the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala said the soil perish in the inside the Holika halwa the human being was created anxious he

01:20:00--> 01:20:47

He's always terrified and worried and scared of the future. If I'm Associate losers who are whenever he is afflicted with evil, sickness, poverty, loss of wealth and health loss of a loved one, a parent or child, no matter what the case is, how does he respond? He says, He is impatient, he becomes scared, and he becomes worried, and he loses hope of any good happening to him. That's the human being. Why is someone failed him and why? And if he was touched with goodness, then he will hold you stingy, he's miserly. That's the human being. Allah azza wa jal said Ill mousseline except for those who are committed to their Salaat Allah who will give them the strength and the ability

01:20:47--> 01:21:00

for them to overcome the calamities and the anxiety and depression and distress in their life. The most anak you have in your life obligations, voluntary prayers, and with the sooner

01:21:01--> 01:21:37

the more control you have over your stress and calamity and anxiety, and the less solid you have in your life, then you will be overcome by your distress and anxiety and by your depression. Now, why did I share this with you? Because at the core of a solid is Suhler 230. That's the core of the solid. Therefore, what gives you control over your calamities and your distress and anxiety

01:21:38--> 01:22:37

and over your depression is Surah Fatiha and this is why Surah Al Fatiha itself is called a solid is a name of it are solid. And this is found in the hadith of Abu Holroyd, audibly Allahu Allah and he said that a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah has said Kasam to select the veiny you are Bina Abdeen seen that I divided a solid, meaning the Third Eye divided between me and my sleeve in half. So when the sleeve says Alhamdulillah al Amin, Allah says Hamadani Abdi, Allah says, this is a conversation, there is a dialogue. You need to feel this when you're reading solitons in order for it to have an effect on you, and treat your stress and your calamities and also your depression

01:22:37--> 01:23:16

and your anxiety. When you say All praise belongs to the Lord of the Worlds, Allah who would say Hamid ne Abdi, my sleeve has shown gratitude to me, You know what that means? It means that Allah has acknowledged your gratitude towards him. You know, often most of the times we sit down and we say, Did Allah hear our praise? Did Allah recognize it? Does Allah He can Allah He does he know that I'm praising him and thanking him? Yes. In Surah Al Fatiha he says, How many Danny have the my sleeve has been grateful to me?

01:23:17--> 01:23:23

So Allah social acknowledges it. Then when the slave says Manuel Rahim,

01:23:24--> 01:24:14

Allah azza wa jal says us now Allah you have the my sleeve has praised me. Once again, Allah acknowledges your praise of him. You don't worry to say Did Allah He did he acknowledge Did he accept from me? You just be concerned about reading alpha? And the responses there? Yes. Hola. Sasha has acknowledged your praise of him. When the sleeve says merely Kiyomi Dean, Allah subhanahu wa taala says, Masha Danny Abdi, my sleeve has glorified men honored me and Allah has acknowledged your glorification of him and when the sleeve says II cannot boudoir er canister in You alone we worship and You alone we seek your help. Allah subhanahu wa taala says heavy being the new Urbina Abdi Ali

01:24:14--> 01:24:59

Abdullah Sal, That's between me and my sleeve. Look at the conversation now. It's become personal. It's like Allah is saying, This is between you and I, no one's involved in this. This is between you and me. And for you is what you ask. You haven't even asked yet. The asking of guidance is coming next, you know, Serato booster team. But because you've shown gratitude to Allah by saying that hamdulillah he'll have been al Amin, and you've praised Allah, and you've glorified Him by saying that Manuel bahini Maliki OMA DM, now Allah subhanahu wa Tiana is happy with the servant. He's pleased with the servant to the point where he says, and for my servant is whatever he asks for you

01:25:00--> 01:25:44

We're in a position to ask now. So when the sleeve says, in a follow up almost the team, guide us to the straight path. So oppa Lavina and I'm telling him, well, you didn't Boober ally him went to Bali and guide us to the straight path guide us to the path that you be of those who viewed bestowed Your favor and your mercy upon other than the path of those who earned Your anger and your wrath and those who are misguided. Allah subhanho wa Taala says heavy Helia Abdi wali Abdi, my son, that is for my sleeve, and surely for him is what he requested. And Allah azza wa jal continues to give us guidance, whether you realize or you don't. That's because you're reading solo till at least 17

01:25:44--> 01:26:18

times a day in your salon. And you ask, Why am I here tonight? Why have I chosen on a Friday night to come and sit? When I could have done a million other things and listen to the word of Allah being recited and being explained? You know why? Because perhaps during this day, Allah azza wa jal, he heard that, you know, set up a loose the team of yours, and he's guided you, he guided you to this event. So you can he something that will benefit you in your relationship with Allah. Allahu Akbar, my brothers and sisters in Islam.

01:26:19--> 01:27:10

Let's take a dive area by iron in Philadelphia. I'll share as much as I can with you until my time is up. And let's extract how each and every single iron helps us cure depression, anxiety and distress. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam when you read Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, the first area in Surah Al Fatiha and of course, there is a difference of opinion among Allah Allah. But there is no doubt that Albus mela has a heavyweight in Islam. So now, when you see Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, how does that treat? How does it cure depression and anxiety and distress? Because when you see Bismillah This belt is belt will list the iron, you will see seeking Allah's help. So now in

01:27:10--> 01:27:59

whatever calamity or in whatever is bothering you, you're being forced to seek Allah's help. That's what Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim is telling you. It's telling you give up. It's telling you surrender. It is telling you you cannot do this life on your own. If you try to face life on your own, you will be in misery and you will fail miserably. Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim is telling you face this life with the help of Allah subhanahu wa taala Allahu Akbar. And so there was a companion by the name of Paul Harbin obey the law who will be Allah who I know on the day of God, he experienced a calamity. His fingers cut off. Imagine a finger cut off. You know what he did? He said

01:27:59--> 01:28:00

his Yanni he said,

01:28:01--> 01:28:15

like is that's a normal reaction. Anyone will do this if your body was injured. Imagine a finger being cut in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard him and he said to him, he said to him

01:28:17--> 01:28:54

Bismillah Laura Foxconn Vinay. He said to him, if you just said Bismillah GI Joes would have came in they would have raised you, Allahu Akbar, face your calamity with Bismillah before your utter words have been in this world to life. And just like Ibrahim alayhis salam, he was thrown he was launched into a fire and that fire is a calamity no doubt. It is supposed to burn a person. He was launched into the fire. He didn't scream up in his landing. Rather he said how smooth

01:28:57--> 01:29:27

he said sufficient is for me my love and he's the best to rely upon. And what happened Allah socials Opus with him, Allah social meet the fire cool and peaceful upon him. And just like you know, solid you salaam, he ends up in a calamity, in the belly of a whale, in the darkness of the night, in the depths of the ocean. These are three darknesses if you put his hand in front of him, he couldn't see it. He literally reached a rock bottom.

01:29:29--> 01:29:59

And even then, he did not look for what he means, and he did not rely upon himself. Imagine you're stuck in a situation like that. The first thing we do is we take the phone and the light and see how can I escape. He didn't resort to worldly means because he knows I cannot face calamities by myself. If I entrust myself I will fail miserably. So you said you learn Subhanak in need

01:30:00--> 01:30:46

Couldn't do me a volume in he faced his calamity. With Allah with the help of Allah subhanahu wata Allah and Allah azza wa jal would save him at the end. Allah said fanola No can Amina Musa behavior had you not been from those who praised Allah and worshipped Allah, He would have remained in the belly of that way along till the Day of Judgment, he would have remained in his suffering and his calamity, and he would have remained in his depression and anxiety and distress until the day of judgment. But he faced it with Bismillah he faced it with the name of Allah, and Allah social saved him. So when you read Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, it is forcing you to surrender and stop and face

01:30:46--> 01:31:39

this world to life with the help of Allah subhanho wa taala. And Allah was at his knee and it is close and don't give up. Wouldn't it be something Allahu Allah USA let me You said it about a booker mean Kuno theory baddie, he will be really Allahu Akbar. Have you ever heard of this hadith in the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, your Lord, He is amazed at the hopelessness of the servant. He's amazed when the sleeve gives up hope. And his change of affairs were very close and very leave. But he gave up Allahu Akbar Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. And that's how it cures, stress, distress, and depression and anxiety. We move on and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen all present thanks belongs to

01:31:39--> 01:32:28

Allah. And how does this area cure distress, anxiety and depression. Because when you say Alhamdulillah, he'll have been al Amin, All praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, it forces you to think of the blessings and to be grateful to them. You know, when a person is depressed, and he's anxious, and he's in distress, what happens that blocks that blocks you from seeing and recognizing the blessings in life, because you're just focused on what is concerning you. And it blocks your vision from the 1000s and millions of blessings that are still working good for you in this life. So Alhamdulillah Allah al Amin is forcing you to change your attitude of

01:32:28--> 01:32:55

gratitude. It is forcing you to be grateful to whatever is happening that is good in your life, and Hamdulillah that you're still a Muslim, and Hamdulillah that you still love Allah and Hamdulillah that you still love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and hamdulillah for the eyes that Allah has given you, and hamdulillah for the health and hamdulillah for many, many things that you have. I tell you something,

01:32:56--> 01:33:30

there was a companion His name is Abu Abu Bashar he men shut down the nose. They both went to visit a man that was sick. They entered upon him and they said to him, Kay FOSS but how are you this morning, my brother, you are sick. You know what he responded and he said, he said to them, a spa to Phoenix. He said I am waking up this morning and I am immersed in an abundance of blessings. Allahu Akbar wa Halal malo buena Amma is sickness a blessing. What is his companion talking about?

01:33:32--> 01:34:21

Of course it's a blessing. Of course sickness is a blessing because it purifies your sins. It elevates your rank with Allah. Wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa salam says, perhaps the servant has a rank and a level in the Paradise. He will never ever reach with your Salah with his fasting and with your sadaqa he will only get there through a calamity Allah inflicts upon him. Allahu Akbar. So if his companion is aware of this matter, that is how Alhamdulillah he'll have been al Amin cures depression, anxiety and distress. It forces you to think of the good. And this is why in Nabhi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even in bad times, he would say Alhamdulillah Allah Hoolahan Oh,

01:34:21--> 01:34:59

praise and thanks belongs to Allah, in every situation I'm in. And humbly Allah is to praise Allah with love. That's what Alhamdulillah is. Because I can pray something without loving. You know, sometimes you might have an enemy out there. He does something good. So you praise him and give him credit for why he did that is good, but you actually don't love him. That can happen. But Alhambra necessitates that you praise Allah with love. So when you are in your depression and anxiety and distress, and you say Alhamdulillah Allah

01:35:00--> 01:35:07

I mean, internalize the love that you have for Allah azza wa jal, no matter what you're going through.

01:35:09--> 01:35:56

There is a lot to be grateful for. There is a lot. And you know, when Allah azza wa jal tests a person, he says, well in a blue icon beside Allah test you with something, how can you reach that level of being grateful to Allah, when you're in the midst of a calamity, because you know, when a person experiences a calamity, there are four ways to react. You can either be displeased with Allah, you can either be patient, you can either be pleased with Allah, and the highest level in a calamity is to thank Allah for the calamity. You know how you can reach this. Because when Allah tests you, he tests you with something, and he leaves a lot of that thing that he tested you with.

01:35:57--> 01:36:16

The only way you can reach this level is by focusing on what Allah azza wa jal left for you. Just like AutoWeb, numerous ruderal, the Allahu Anhu he had a disease in his leg, so it had to be amputated. And he also had a few children. He had about four kids, and they were coming to him.

01:36:17--> 01:36:21

And one of them was thrown off the back of the horse and kicked and he died.

01:36:22--> 01:36:33

So they cut his foot, they amputated his legs, his leg off. And then after he woke up, they gave him the news that your son had died.

01:36:34--> 01:37:25

So you know what he said? He said, Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, Allah azza wa jal gave me two hands and two feet. And he gave me four children. Then he said, Alhamdulillah, for what Allah has taken, and that is one limb of the two hands and two legs, and he has taken one child, he said that hamdulillah for what Allah took, and Alhamdulillah for Allah azza wa jal has left with me. That's the only way to reach the highest level, which is the level of hammer during a calamity, by looking at what else is left, when you lose some wealth. So your hamdulillah for whatever remains, when you lose some health, say Alhamdulillah for what remains, when you lose a loved one, say Alhamdulillah

01:37:25--> 01:37:42

for whoever remains, and so on. That's the ID and Hamdulillah. Brian, I mean, when you say on Rahmani Raheem, you are forced to think of the Mercy of Allah subhanahu wa taala. And how this desire, cure depression and anxiety and distress

01:37:43--> 01:38:28

because every single calamity you go through, is injected with a lot of Allah's mercy, compassion and kindness. Whether you realize it or not, Allah says hola hola to you from very bad de Allah. He's gentle and compassionate with the sleeves. When he brought him Allegan Saddam was thrown in the fire. Allah made it cool and peaceful. That's Allah's compassion and mercy to Ibrahim Ali is Saddam during the calamity. Now, this is what we're supposed to think of a you Valley he's Salam. When he was bedridden for 18. He's couldn't move from his bed due to the sickness that was upon him. Even his family, the whole community ran away from him. And he lost his wife and he lost his children. He

01:38:28--> 01:38:40

was alone, only his wife was with him, she would carry him to the bathroom and back. And after a teenis you know what he says? He says a little bit misogyny of bullying. Lord,

01:38:42--> 01:39:19

the pain has touched me. While I'm Todd hamre. He mean, and you're the most merciful. Allahu Akbar, I tell you something, all of us. In times of goodness, it's very easy to say Allah is the most merciful, but trying to say it, after years of calamity and suffering, then at that moment, it will be an achievement. So when you're going through anxiety, depression and distress, and you say, oh, man, you're him. You're fighting that evil whispering of a shape on who wants you to doubt the Mercy of Allah.

01:39:20--> 01:39:50

So you realize that Allah is merciful with you? He's always been kind and good to you. You know Yusuf Ali has Salam mashallah we're talking about use of Allah, your Salah. I give you an information about him. How many tests Did he go through? How many calamities Did he go through? He was thrown in a well, he was separated from his father and his mother and his family. He was sold as a sleeve. He ended up in a fitna, close to Zina, then Allah saved him. He ended up in prison.

01:39:51--> 01:39:59

Calamity after calamity after calamity, and at the end of the surah you know what he says? When he gathers his family

01:40:00--> 01:40:18

He says to them, or cada Sana Be my Lord has always been kind to me. My Lord has always been compassionate and merciful to me. That's the attitude he had, even though he went through this entire life of calamity. So when you read Al Hamdulillah

01:40:21--> 01:40:34

you're forced to think of the Mercy of Allah. What a mighty What's your color che? The Mercy of Allah has encompassed everything. Why do you think it has an Encompass you?

01:40:35--> 01:41:26

This is from the Shavon and this is how this idea it cures depression, anxiety and distress. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam. We don't have much time I will share with you one more. Maliki omy Dean, when you read Maliki oh me Dean, the king at another Quran? Mellie Kiyomi. Dean, the king and the Owner of the Day of Recompense of the day of accountability. How does this area cure anxiety, depression and distress? Because when you read Maliki Omi, Dean, you are forced to think of the afterlife and you're forced to think of that day in which you will be standing before Allah. And you know what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, he says, Men Geralyn Hulu Muhammad Wahida

01:41:28--> 01:41:31

kapha, Hula, hula Humam, whoever,

01:41:33--> 01:41:53

whoever makes all his concerns into one concern, and that is the concern of the afterlife. You see, the best and the most healthiest concern and worry and anxiety you're supposed to have is the concern of the afterlife. Whoever made that his main concern

01:41:55--> 01:42:00

Allah Who will protect him from all worldly concerns, because all of it will be inferior.

01:42:01--> 01:42:49

What does a financial stress what does that mean that that you die? And a relationship difficulty? What does that mean the day you die. So whoever makes his main concern the afterlife. Every other worldly concern will become less and inferior doesn't mean anything to you anymore. And that's how this idea cures anxiety and depression and distress. When the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says women suffer Lockerbie Hill, Hmong, and whoever whoever's concerns and worries are distributed in this world life. You're concerned about finances, about relationship, about health, about these and you're immersed into that? Allah azza wa jal, he says, Lay your bell Allah, fie, a o deity ha

01:42:49--> 01:43:31

Hallak. Allah doesn't care. Allah will not care concerning which of these worries causes your death and allows you to die and be destroyed. Allahu Akbar. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he allow the meanings of the Quran to penetrate deep within our hearts. And we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant us relief and aid and that we asked him Subhanahu wa Taala to accept from us our worships and our good deeds in the Holy of elocon called Rali or SallAllahu wasallam or Bella gala and Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ash Marian, Giselle como la jolla, la wa Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

01:43:39--> 01:43:41

don't understand how someone's still clapping

01:43:45--> 01:43:48

no clapping brothers please and sisters just couldn't.

01:43:49--> 01:44:05

Does that clock tower chef, our beloved chef Abu Bakr May Allah subhanaw taala bless him immensely in this dunya well akhira without further ado hamdullah we have our beloved brother Rahim to come up here and talk to you on behalf of human appeal pornography.

01:44:14--> 01:44:16

01:44:52--> 01:44:59

at a time of ethnic cleansing, a time of genocide at a time of hip hop

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

Krisi we the Muslims

01:45:03--> 01:45:06

greet you with the greeting of peace

01:45:07--> 01:45:19

with the greeting of the angels, the greeting of the prophets, my brothers and my sisters, we greet you with that greeting a Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah.

01:45:25--> 01:45:29

When Allah created Jana

01:45:31--> 01:45:35

he sent the angel Jibreel to go and look at his creation.

01:45:36--> 01:45:45

It is a physical place, my brothers and sisters, Angel Jibreel he went and he looked inside Janna.

01:45:46--> 01:45:54

He saw what the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what no eye has ever seen.

01:45:55--> 01:46:04

What no heart has ever perceived, what Allah has made for us in Jannah, we cannot even imagine.

01:46:06--> 01:46:12

Angel Jibreel went back to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah asked him Yeah, Gibreel What do you think of my creation?

01:46:14--> 01:46:16

He said, Ya rub.

01:46:17--> 01:46:28

Everybody who hears of this place is going to enter inside it. No one who hears about the joys of Jana will be left outside.

01:46:30--> 01:46:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala then surrounded Jana, with tests.

01:46:37--> 01:46:44

Waking up for Fudger on a cold day, leaving your warm bed to worship Allah.

01:46:46--> 01:46:54

Giving care to your parents never saying the word of no matter how frustrated we feel inside,

01:46:56--> 01:47:11

giving in in an argument, the prophet Salah some said for them a house in the middle of Jannah why you're angry, you know you are in the right. But for the sake of peace, you give up in the argument

01:47:12--> 01:47:37

and giving away our wealth to people we have never met to people who cannot help us. Trusting in Allah as our provider. Allah surrounded Janna with these tests. He asked Angel Jibreel What do you think now? Angel Jibreel said Yeah, Rob B. I fear no one is going to enter Jannah

01:47:39--> 01:47:42

my brothers and sisters, none of us

01:47:43--> 01:47:48

none of us will enter Jannah without struggle

01:47:49--> 01:47:51

without pushing ourselves

01:47:53--> 01:48:09

without stepping outside our comfort zone and doing things that are difficult, we will not taste the joy is we will not smell the fragrance of Jannah without this struggle. And today. Today, the struggle is

01:48:11--> 01:48:18

no one in this room 10,000 People has ever seen what we are seeing today.

01:48:20--> 01:48:22

A captive population.

01:48:23--> 01:48:24

They cannot flee.

01:48:26--> 01:48:27

They cannot run.

01:48:28--> 01:48:51

They cannot create claim asylum. They cannot cross the border. And on our TV screens. The bombs are raining down upon them upon their children every night. Our sisters were full hijab in their bed because they fear that they will be exposed their dead bodies when they wake up in the mornings.

01:48:52--> 01:49:09

No one has seen hypocrisy and double standards like this from the international community where one set of refugees are welcomed with open arms and every war crime is documented and every war crime is condemned

01:49:10--> 01:49:13

and other refugees of our faith.

01:49:14--> 01:49:25

Our blood is cheap. No one cares. The world watches as our children are blown to pieces

01:50:32--> 01:51:18

hamdulillah people donated not in their 1000s not in their hundreds of 1000s. In their millions people donated to us and Alhamdulillah the doors opened, the barriers were lifted, and we flooded those millions of pounds of aid in when we started this tour my brothers and sisters, I will show you a figure. The day before the tour, I went to our operatives, I said to human appeal, I want the exact number. How many people have we helped so far in Huzur, since the seventh of October, and this number I was given, look at the date. What is the date, the 14th of December is when we started our winter tour is when we started our December tour on this beautiful tour Alhamdulillah.

01:51:19--> 01:51:20

What we didn't know

01:51:21--> 01:52:08

is that every day the situation changes every day on the ground doors, open doors, closed opportunities, we cannot tell you exactly when we will do this exactly when we will do that. And I hope I pray that you see that sincerity that you honor and respect that honesty that we cannot tell you exactly when we can tell you that we will do everything humanly possible. Alhamdulillah today today I asked human appeal. Please give me an update. Where are we at? We've been on this tour Wallah he No one has seen this figure for the last two weeks. No one you are the first people to see this figure Wallah. He, this figure came to us today this figure that comes up behind me now as of

01:52:08--> 01:52:41

the 29th of December 403,690 individual beneficiaries coming up to half a million we human appeal Alhamdulillah have provided food and aid and water and medicine. And let me show you how we do that. UNICEF came to us. The United Nations came to us to human appeal because we've been there on the ground for 30 years. We have operations. We have so many facilities. They said we've negotiated with the Israelis.

01:52:43--> 01:53:16

We've negotiated with the Israelis for six hours a day to produce clean water. The water is killing more people than the bombs. The United Nations is saying now the water situation will be killing more people than the bombs. The United Nations are reporting. UNICEF came to us they said we have permission for six hours a day of fuel, please, can we use your water desalination plant? This picture? This picture is our water desalination plant inside.

01:53:17--> 01:53:45

Every hour 52,000 litres of filthy sewage polluted water. We turn it around into pure clean drinking water 52,000 litres an hour. We have six hours a day of fuel from UNICEF. That's 300,000 litres of water every single day that at the moment this day, this Friday 29th of December.

01:53:48--> 01:53:51

Water when the oppressors have cut

01:53:57--> 01:54:32

do we provide it we put it into lorries as you will see we take those lorries Alhamdulillah we drive them around the community. People have 16 litre tubs, they come up we fill up the 16 litre tubs and we give those out to the families will Allah hell have brothers and sisters. This figure 403,690 I asked human appeal. I said don't tell me 403,000 I don't want to hear 403,000 or 404,000 I want to hear is it 690? Is it 691? Is it 689 Why?

01:54:33--> 01:54:51

Because Wallahi every child that we help every sister every brother is an individual is a person is one of our brothers and sisters and we count each and every one and then they sent us this picture and Wallahi I wept when we got this picture.

01:54:52--> 01:54:59

This is because of you my brothers and sisters, this child This often is drinking water

01:55:00--> 01:55:09

Clean, not from the sewage, not disgusted and polluted, clean, safe drinking water because of your donations.

01:55:11--> 01:55:17

My brothers and sisters the world will never be the same after what we have seen.

01:55:19--> 01:55:22

We as an ummah can never be the same.

01:55:24--> 01:56:02

We have to step up, we have to change and we are there on the ground by the mercy of Allah. Let me show you how it breaks down. You will see here you can see Alhamdulillah nearly 150,000 food parcels, fresh vegetables, 24,000 people hygiene kits, tanks of clean water, water desalination, the women's dignity kids medical supplies, winter clothes for the children and tents. 1500 people helped intense there is a perfect storm at the moment my brothers and sisters that on top of the destruction

01:56:13--> 01:56:59

in the winter, three years ago in January, I was in a Palestinian refugee camp in the winter. Two days I got soaked from head to toe because of the rain and there was nowhere to dry my clothes. I walked around in those cold freezing damp clothes for two days. And when I came back to the UK, double pneumonia. I've never been so sick in my life. Hundreds of 1000s of our brothers and sisters with the onslaught of bombs with no access to their food or living out in the cold. We can provide tents, we can provide that water we are providing that food will Allah Hill hum and before I move on on this table, can we get the table back please if we can. There are two items that are mentioned

01:56:59--> 01:57:02

there. I am a father of teenage daughters.

01:57:03--> 01:57:42

I am a father of teenage daughters. We are providing dignity kits for our sisters, hygiene kits for our brothers and our sisters. The United Nations have said that for each one shower in today. This day, there are 4000 lessons per shower 4000 persons per shower. And I am pleased that the videos that we are seeing as humanitarian workers that Allah has protected the dignity of our brothers and sisters in Gaza.

01:57:43--> 01:57:45

There are rivers

01:57:48--> 01:58:09

rivers of new jossa in huzzah at the moment, rivers of Macerata. There are elders that are sisters are having to use because there are no other facilities. So when you provide a dignity kit for our sister, when you provide a hygiene kit for our brothers and our sisters, this is dignity.

01:58:11--> 01:58:21

My brothers and sisters, we're going to ask you in a moment to raise your hands to do something brave and to support the people of Gaza.

01:58:22--> 01:58:31

And I want to share something with you first because we need to be inspired by our Quran by the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:58:32--> 01:58:37

because this has been a test of my Eman, watching what is happening? Where is my strength?

01:58:39--> 01:58:48

Where's my courage, my brother Rahim when it comes to assisting our brothers and sisters in the worst moments of their life.

01:58:49--> 01:58:51

And I turned to the book of Allah

01:58:52--> 01:59:15

in Surah to Nyssa I have seen a verse that I have read so many times in my life, but it has landed in my heart now and I know Allah is speaking of this incident. I know my Rob is calling me and asking me a question. Allah begins. You will see in Surah Nisa, verse 75. Allah asks us a question.

01:59:17--> 01:59:21

Allah says, How can you refuse?

01:59:22--> 01:59:27

How can you refuse to struggle for the sake of Allah?

01:59:28--> 01:59:58

Who is Allah talking about? Who is Allah dressing? In this verse? He's talking to us struggle for whom Allah goes on to say, for the helpless, the men, the women and the children. Allah is telling us men, women and children are helpless. And Allah is asking Why are you refusing to struggle? What is the call? Allah tells us, they are crying out. They are crying out

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

What are they crying my brothers and sisters? Allah those words in the Quran.

02:00:07--> 02:00:12

Y'all Rob, save us from these oppresses.

02:00:15--> 02:00:19

Y'all Allah save us from this land of oppression.

02:00:21--> 02:00:41

And the people of Gaza ask, Oh Allah, send from yourself, Help us, please your Allah send us help us, from your Rama, those that will protect us. They are not asking for our help. They are asking for Allah's help,

02:00:42--> 02:00:49

that he will send protectors, he will send food, he will send water, he will send shelter.

02:00:52--> 02:01:38

Today, my brothers and sisters, it costs 1000 pounds to support one of these families through the winter 1000 pounds to provide them with shelter, to provide them with food, to provide them with fuel to keep warm in the worst winter of their life. And I'm gonna ask today is that a brother or a sister here who can do something special, something that most of us can never do. And that is to look after 24 families. That is 24,000 pounds, most of us in this arena 10,000 People here and Allah has denied the opportunity to give this sort of wealth away to 99% of us.

02:01:39--> 02:02:38

But there are from amongst us those who Allah increased in wealth, increased in business increased in property. Now is the time to find our courage. 24,000 pounds 2000 pounds a month over the next year. We ask is though are they here? The people who will struggle? Who will answer the call of the women, the children of Gaza who are crying out to Allah is their first hand hit today at 24,000 pounds. And we will move down brothers and sisters to amounts that everyone who wishes to give everyone who wishes to give can give something but some of us Allah blessed with different level of wealth. He raised us in our wealth. Let us use that wealth today. For our sisters, for those

02:02:38--> 02:03:07

children that we see screaming on our screens now as give them that shelter. Let's give them that medicine. Give them that food, give them that clean water. Do we have that firsthand here today at 24,000 pounds, and we will move down in a second. But I'm hoping and I know somebody will be that firsthand in Sharla. And it takes courage. It takes courage to give away our wealth. I want to show you courage brothers and sisters.

02:03:08--> 02:03:25

Because I posted on my Instagram the other day a Christian, a Christian woman and she said I saw a mother from Gaza, holding her baby in her hands. Her dead baby and she was praising Allah

02:03:26--> 02:03:33

praising Allah as she held her dead baby. She said I know. I don't have faith like that.

02:03:34--> 02:03:57

I know I don't have faith. She read the Quran open the Quran watershed she accepted Islam Alhamdulillah the people of Gaza the bombs fall on them they say husband Allah when your ml wiki. Allah is the best protector for me. Their children are being killed husband Allah when the men were killed a cry, Allah is the best protector for me.

02:03:58--> 02:04:21

And in their little fingers, they have more courage than I have in my entire life. Look at this video. This is a 13 year old girl. Look at her courage for I can tell you brothers and sisters. Everybody's greatest fear in this room is to be buried alive. To be buried alive is our greatest fear.

02:04:23--> 02:04:37

I want you to see this system we have Alhamdulillah we have our first donation. Our first donor at 24,000 pounds brothers and sisters, let us shake this arena with the praise of Allah duck.

02:04:39--> 02:04:41

Allahu Akbar.

02:04:42--> 02:04:51

Our blood is cheap. No one is going to save us. We have to stand. We have to have courage.

02:04:52--> 02:04:59

Look at the sister buried alive and listen to her words. There is no blood. There is no guts. There is

02:05:00--> 02:05:11

is only the heart of a lion in a 13 year old girl watch this clip my brothers and sisters we will see is there someone else with the courage for 24,000 Then we will move on Bismillah

02:05:19--> 02:05:19

Erminia Alma?

02:05:57--> 02:06:02

people of Gaza are inspiring the world, let them inspire us.

02:06:04--> 02:06:44

Do we have that courage? The courage to know Allah will never abandon me when I stand with the victims in Huzzah. Allah will never reduce my wealth. When I give for the people of Gaza. We've had one hand and 24,000 Do we have another brother or a sister? And if you open your torch, wave your torch at me there's so many I cannot see it. Do we have another brother or sister before I move it down? 2000 pounds a month, over the next year? Do we have that second hand here? A brother or a sister that can help inshallah? And if no, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

02:06:48--> 02:06:49

Allahu Akbar.

02:06:51--> 02:07:33

Do we have a third hand? Do not fear the lies of shaytaan. My brothers and sisters, he isn't a cursive liar. He is a devil. He is a deceiver, he will trick and lie and deceive. If you have that money, know that Allah will never abandon us when we stand with those victims under those buildings. When we give water to the children who have sewage to drink. When we feed the victims, Allah will never abandon us. Do we have a third hand at 24,000? Then I will move down in sha Allah, a third brother, a third sister 2000 pounds a month over the next year, somebody who can make this commitment to find that courage? Do we have it in Sharla?

02:07:34--> 02:07:56

Then I will move down because of time. And I'm going to move down to a figure that more of us can get involved with. This is 800 pounds a month, over the next year to help to provide medicine and fuel to keep those hospitals running to keep our brothers and sisters sheltered. And I will ask you a question first.

02:07:57--> 02:08:02

This question my brothers and sisters, is a question to me.

02:08:03--> 02:08:06

First and foremost, too, brother Raheem.

02:08:08--> 02:08:10

When was the last time

02:08:11--> 02:08:13

I found courage,

02:08:14--> 02:08:16

real courage.

02:08:17--> 02:08:42

When was the last time I did something that was so difficult for me that I was shaking in fear in front of my Lord, trusting in Allah and terrified myself of what would happen. When was the last time I did it? Because this is the question I asked myself. If I bother him, I'm not prepared now to give 800 pounds a month of my money.

02:08:43--> 02:08:51

If I cannot find the courage, when 1000 children have been destroyed in front of my eyes

02:08:52--> 02:09:01

when 5000 children have been massacred in front of my eyes. What am I waiting for?

02:09:03--> 02:09:04

When will I find my courage?

02:09:06--> 02:09:08

Will I ever find it?

02:09:10--> 02:09:14

Do I have to wait for 20,000 do I do with my own children?

02:09:17--> 02:09:59

Allah Allah, Allahu Allah. This terrifies me. Where is my courage? The people of Gaza showing their courage Where is mine? Well Allah He I will give 10,000 and I made this intention a long time ago, I will show courage in my family in sha Allah and give the wealth that Allah gave me who from here today can be the first hand at 10,000 Put your torches on wave us raise your hands inshallah. We had two hands at 25,000 were 24,000 whereas our firsthand at 10,000 pounds 800 pounds a month over the next year. 200 pounds. Do we have one here? We have our first volunteer here.

02:10:00--> 02:10:30

Do we have a second? My brothers and sisters? Do we have a second hand is there Allahu Akbar, put your lights on? Do we have a third hand? A third hand in the room at 10,000 pounds and we will move down. We know most of us can't do this. Is there a torch at the back? Is there someone here we have a third hand here? Do we have a fourth hand in the room at 10,000? Wave point, call out gift Takbeer Do we have a fourth hand? It is a serious question.

02:10:31--> 02:10:50

My brothers and sisters it is a serious question. When will we find our Tawakkol in Allah? What has to happen? What has to happen? What do we have to see? Can we see anything worse than people picking up the limbs of their children and putting them in plastic bags?

02:11:10--> 02:11:30

800 pounds a month. Start your deal with Allah watch what happens? Give 800 pounds a month this month? Give it in January. Give it in February and see the deal that you have done with Allah see what happens is that I've hand up there was at a flash, I saw a flash maybe they were just taking a picture.

02:11:31--> 02:11:37

Do we have that fourth hand and we will move down my brothers and sisters I know many are itching to donate inshallah.

02:11:39--> 02:11:57

Then because of time, we will move it down. And I'm going to share something very, very personal, that have never shared with you, brothers and sisters, I want to ask a question that has never been asked in this arena. And I want you to shout yes, if you believe. Do we believe in miracles? Yes or no?

02:11:59--> 02:12:03

Do we really believe in miracles? Yes or no?

02:12:05--> 02:12:15

Let me share with you we have seen so many miracles of Gaza. I will share a personal miracle connected to Gaza after the 2014 bombing of Gaza.

02:12:31--> 02:12:46

1000 pounds. I was a young father five young children. And I came with intention of giving 1000 pounds. And I said to my wife, I listened. I listened to the brother Brother. And something landed in my heart.

02:12:47--> 02:13:35

I said to my wife Imagine we save one person. I know it's obvious. But on that day it landed in my heart that a brother or a sister we might save them. And I said to my wife Imagine we save one person. I said to my wife can we give 6000 She said I don't know. We said Bismillah we raised our hand the biggest donation I had ever given in my life. It was way outside my comfort zone. Why am I sharing this with you my brothers and sisters? What did I say? Maybe we will save one person. 10 days later, I was on the other side of Allah's world in New Zealand. And I was involved in a car crash. Beautiful sunny afternoon, not a care in the world. Five seconds later, my head is being

02:13:35--> 02:13:58

smashed against the road at 60 miles per hour 60 miles per hour I was thrown out of the car and my head smashed into that concrete road at 60 miles an hour. I should be dead. Now I'm going to share with you a picture from my own phone. If you do not like gruesome pictures look away.

02:14:40--> 02:14:59

From the paramedic in the air ambulance in the helicopter from the doctors in the plane that took me back to the UK from the doctors in the NHS. They said the same thing. Mr. Raheem, you had a miraculous escape. No brain damage, no scarring if I turned around

02:15:01--> 02:15:07

no scarring on my head, no permanent effects I shouldn't be dead.

02:15:08--> 02:16:01

What did I give that 6000 to 10 days earlier? What was my donation Wallahi with Allah the Lord of the worlds as my witness that donation was to protect cause from brain damage. It was a specific medical equipment to protect them from brain damage. I said to my wife, imagine we save one person, I was saving myself. My brother is atheist, my brother from the same room as my mother is atheist. You know, he said to me, You are a fool Rahim. You believe that your doubt your sadaqa saved you. You are an idiot. He said the doctor saved you. The medic saved you. I said to him, You are blind, my brother, you are blind. The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam promised that calamity is heading

02:16:01--> 02:16:28

towards us. He said save yourself with your sadaqa save yourself with your charity. These are the miracles when we stand with the people of Gaza. This is Iman Do we have a hand to start us? 500 pounds a month at 6000 pounds for the people of Gaza? Where is our first hand raised? Those torches in sha Allah are firsthand at 6000 pounds. Do we have a message

02:16:33--> 02:16:41

Okay, keep those phone lights on our volunteers are missing you when you raise your light and you bought we have 6000 here brothers and sisters duck beer.

02:16:43--> 02:17:28

Where's our second 6000 and to deal with Allah, I had a hand over here mashallah, let do we have a third hand in the room, a third hand in the room at 6000 pounds before we move it down? Our third hand at 6000. And our fourth raise your hands wave the forms in sha Allah. This is 500 pounds a month. We are delivering we can stand with the people of Gaza. But we need to find the man brothers and sisters. Raise your hand volunteers wave at me. Do we have a third and a fourth hand in sha Allah? We have our third at the back. Do we have our fourth hand at 6000? Our fourth hand is here. Allahu Akbar. Do we have a fifth hand at 6000 pounds? A fifth? Is that a hand over here? I cannot

02:17:28--> 02:18:18

see. Please volunteers wave at me. If the people raise their hands wave at me so I can see we have a sick fifth hand here. Do we have a sick friend, but your phone like a six hand over here? Do we have a seven pound in the room? 500 pounds a month. This is a deal between us and Allah? Do we have a seventh hand at 500 pounds a month 6000 pounds. Then we move it down and we'll speed it up in Sharla. And I will tell you of a miracle. I will tell you of a miracle that we have heard direct from direct in Sharla any more hands at 500 pounds a month at 6000 pounds. Give us one more hand in the room for our volunteers. One more Torchlight and Sharla one more courageous finding that belief

02:18:18--> 02:18:28

to believe in Allah's promise. Do we have it in sha Allah? One more hand? We have a hand here at 6000 Brothers and sisters, let us shake this arena duck.

02:18:31--> 02:19:19

Allahu Akbar. We have another one here. Alhamdulillah I'm moving on because of time and moving on. Brothers and sisters 3000 pounds. This is 250 pounds a month. Now many of us are able to do this if we can find the faith to do one thing to believe in the promise of Allah's words in his Quran. He has promised that when we give he will multiply our wealth. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has promised but shaytaan will lie and deceive you. shaytaan will tell you that your investments will protect you your property will protect you. These are lies. Let me share a miracle. Do we believe in miracles? Yes or no?

So please pay attention barkcloth equal As salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear respected brothers and sisters is great to see you all of this year's lie upon lie and a massive thank you to Imam channel for inviting us to speak to you about our rich deployments Program. My name is Helene and our program is designed to give you the opportunity to deliver aid around the world with your own hands. We've taken hundreds of reaches all around the world. And this is what they had to say about the REACH program I truly believe is

02:32:29--> 02:33:05

built to change people's lives. It's an opportunity to, to get out there and and provide help to people that are in need to see the journey from the start from fundraising all the way to actually distributing the aid. It's something amazing and it's a journey that I'll never forget. It's the most fulfilling thing I've ever done in my life. I thought I was helping people in my day to day life of my profession. But this is the true definition of helping people that need it most. It is a great experience and experience of the lifetime and experience that you cannot learn in books and experience that even somebody relating it to you you cannot understand it until and unless you come

02:33:05--> 02:33:43

here. We open our hearts up so much to these people. And they open their hearts to us and it's a beautiful thing. I hope and pray that we all get an opportunity to help in whatever way we can. This experience has changed my life because I've handled light it's made me a lot more grateful. It's brought me closer to Allah brought me closer to Islam. It's made me realize that we're very blessed for all that we have. If every person puts it on themselves that they would like to help one or two people. This would change the world. If you want to join us on a rich deployment around the world to places like Lebanon, Kenya Pakistan, then join us by going on to WWI human forward

02:35:40--> 02:36:00

Without further ado, I'm going to bring on one of our beloved chefs. We start some of those very beloved to me, someone that I've been watching for a very, very long time, someone that has actually been and he took his Deen seriously from searching an agent seeking the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala all the way from Melbourne, our beloved chef Belon Asad.

02:36:17--> 02:36:20

Salam aleikum Warahmatullah wabarakatuh

02:36:23--> 02:36:40

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah my brothers and sisters, let's first of all begin with a dua for our brothers and sisters in philosophy and this is how I would like to begin to talk today hola mainland as a local businessman, you can host now we'll see her tickle Hola.

02:36:42--> 02:37:24

And the father is one NFA reservoir Philistine with equally McCann, we asked you, oh Allah with all your glorious attributes, and your lofty names to bless and protect our brothers and sisters and brothers and Philistine and everywhere around the world. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to change their fear into security, and to protect them inside and out, and to relieve them from their hardship very soon. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to unite their martyred ones with the martyrs, the prophets and the Shahada. Oh Allah and make their children who were slain, awaiting for them at the fountain and make them intercessors for them at the doors of Paradise. Oh Allah do not let the

02:37:24--> 02:37:41

struggles of sacrifice go in vain. Oh Allah returned the Muslims to your religion in a good way. Oh Allah, unite the people against the injustice of Allah, forgive us for our shortcomings. Oh Allah, change the hearts and allow justice to prevail. Amin Yara Bella and me

02:37:43--> 02:37:56

my brothers and sisters, thank you for having me here. I want to begin with a verse of the Quran that is very appropriate for this theme. The theme is the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala said

02:37:57--> 02:38:02

I will be let him in a shaytani R rajim Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim

02:38:19--> 02:38:20

Baek Vicodin, washing

02:38:23--> 02:38:24


02:38:28--> 02:38:30

Lima Phil pseudo

02:38:33--> 02:38:36

methylene meanie

02:38:38--> 02:38:50

gonna be fumbling. He won't be able to humanity he Febby then he can finally have Russian Furby then he can finally have Rocco else.

02:38:53--> 02:39:01

Man, Jim moon. Allah says in chapter 10, verse 57, and 58

02:39:03--> 02:39:10

Oh people. Now he has come to you and exaltation. A reminder from your Lord,

02:39:11--> 02:39:14

a healing for the ailments of the hearts

02:39:15--> 02:39:59

and the guidance and mercy for those who believe. Tell them, oh Prophet, tell them let them rejoice and celebrate in Allah's grace and mercy through which this book the Quran has come to you. It is better than all the riches that they accumulate. Have you heard that verse in the Quran before have you come across it? This is a reason for every believer to celebrate. In fact every non believer in the world if they understood the meaning, and the gift of the Quran, the words of ALLAH to our hearts. It is a gift which we celebrate night and day, Discord earn, which has not changed even

02:40:00--> 02:40:14

With a letter for 1400 years, the challenge remains bring one chapter like it, the shortest chapter is which, which is the sort of shorter sort of brothers sisters. Which one

02:40:15--> 02:40:23

in Athena qualcosa. How many verses how many versus three, how many lines if we were to write it

02:40:25--> 02:40:26

less than two lines,

02:40:27--> 02:40:29

one and a half lines,

02:40:31--> 02:40:40

a little preppy role, you know, a preppy grade one, if you tell them to write one line and a half, they can write it. The Quran says Bring one line and a half like the Quran.

02:40:41--> 02:40:48

And no one has been able to even bring one line and a half. Brothers and sisters rejoice over the Quran which ALLAH has sent us a healing for the heart.

02:40:52--> 02:40:57

In a book, which I read a study, which is called maternal care and maternal health

02:40:58--> 02:40:59

by John Bowlby.

02:41:00--> 02:41:03

He's a very famous psychiatrist, psychologist,

02:41:05--> 02:41:15

a British psychologist, and he's a great reference. He's also a psycho analyst, who is often referenced in scientific studies, he said.

02:41:18--> 02:41:28

He made the term called the attachment theory. Hands up, if you've heard of that the attachment theory. Good, we have a few of our sisters, none of our brothers.

02:41:31--> 02:41:38

The attachment theory makes sense with sisters knowing about it actually, maybe brothers and husbands and fathers should know about it too,

02:41:39--> 02:41:53

that humans are born with a natural, innate psychological nature. And a system which is called the attachment behavioral system. In the Quran, this is very similar to the word fitrah.

02:41:54--> 02:42:01

natural inclination to be attached to someone you love, to give you the sense of security and belonging

02:42:02--> 02:42:07

that motivates them to seek proximity to significant others.

02:42:08--> 02:42:47

And he believed that the earliest bond formed by infants in their mother's womb and early childhood with their mothers have a tremendous impact that continues throughout their life. And on their survival. He said, and he makes the link, thus attachment to God would lead to better psychological functioning. And he suggested that the closer the attachment to God is, the more reduced the mental illnesses are, and the less likely that a person will commit suicide.

02:42:48--> 02:43:26

Many, many, many more studies have been done and found the same comparison. That when you attach yourself to God, and you have faith in God gives you security and your mental illness is much less than others. And he likened it to the womb, when the infant is inside of its mother. It has this attachment, and it makes it feel this connection. And that is why people who don't know who their parents are they live a life with this emptiness. They're on a search. Where do I come from? Where are my parents and my instinct of security? Why do I bring this up? You see brothers and sisters.

02:43:28--> 02:43:40

Interestingly, he says, the reason why the baby finds an attachment with its mother is because the child wants to know who its caregiver is caregiver.

02:43:41--> 02:43:43

And I'll give you one more thing.

02:43:44--> 02:43:55

Those who are mothers have had babies before you'll understand what I'm saying. And those husbands are invested in their families and in their wife during that time. You'll understand this as well.

02:43:56--> 02:44:00

It is now confirmed through extensive studies,

02:44:01--> 02:44:01


02:44:03--> 02:44:04

when a new mother,

02:44:06--> 02:44:08

a woman becomes a new mother.

02:44:09--> 02:44:12

When she hears her baby crying.

02:44:14--> 02:44:17

A hormone in her brain is released called oxytocin

02:44:18--> 02:44:22

and it releases milk. She lactates

02:44:23--> 02:44:24


02:44:25--> 02:44:28

In fact, studies show that if she has any baby cry,

02:44:30--> 02:44:31

she lactates

02:44:32--> 02:44:33

I have a cousin

02:44:34--> 02:44:34

in Lebanon.

02:44:35--> 02:44:44

She is hearing impaired deaf, and so is her husband. And they've got three babies. And she said to my sister

02:44:45--> 02:44:56

in the night I wake up for my baby to breastfeed it. My sister asked her but how do you hear? And she said, I feel I feel

02:44:59--> 02:44:59


02:45:00--> 02:45:04

chef's beloved mentioning all of this. Well there is a connection in the Quran.

02:45:05--> 02:45:31

This same connection, the caregiver, this feeling of security, the feeling of feeling safe from childbirth, we have this instinct and Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly reminds us of two things. Number one, what do we recite every time in solid five times a day? Each raka we begin with what? How do we begin our Quran? How do we let him in a shaytaan regime then what do we say?

02:45:33--> 02:45:36

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Then what does the Fatiha start off with?

02:45:38--> 02:45:47

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen got a young man who is going to be coming shell or something in the future? Rob Bill ilmu what is the word Rob?

02:45:49--> 02:45:56

No. Rob does not mean God. What is Rob? My brothers and sisters? 9000 people here come on. What is Rob?

02:45:58--> 02:46:03

Not God. What did you say, Lord? And what does Lord mean in Arabic? Rob?

02:46:06--> 02:46:13

What is Rob? Lord? What's the difference between Lord and God? What is there between ILA and Rob?

02:46:16--> 02:47:06

The provider, the provider, the caregiver, the maintainer, the creator, the responder, the protector, they are all the actions of Allah. But when you say God, it means the one I worship. So Allah subhanho wa Taala always tells us to begin when we pray Alhamdulillah Rob bill, me in all praise and gratitude to Allah. It doesn't say well, it says Allah, Rob Bill al Amin, the load the caregiver, the maintain the protector, the provider of the entire worlds. Allah begins by telling us he is our caregiver, meaning now you should respond. If you want to be feel close and you want to feel protected, any problem in any hardship you go through, turn to Europe.

02:47:07--> 02:47:15

That's the first connection. And the second connection. Every verse in the Quran which talks about your parents.

02:47:16--> 02:47:22

If you read any verse that talks about your parents, what does Allah also talk about in that verse?

02:47:24--> 02:47:54

It talks about himself always connects the relationship between us and our parents because they are where we came from. And our connection with Allah doesn't mean your parents Allah gods. It means that the reason why we connect with our parents is because that is our origin. And that is part of us. And that is when when we connect with our parents will feel safe. And when we're disconnected from our parents or they are disconnected from us. We feel all sorts of problems and mental illnesses.

02:47:55--> 02:48:27

And that is why Allah Samantha tells us the way you are connected to your parents and you feel your security and your identity strong, and you feel safe. Always remember the one who gave you your parents connect with him? Because that is exactly where you came from. From the beginning. Did you not hear the Quranic verse where Allah says, or either Sir Lanka or a birdie on me for in me, Cory?

02:48:28--> 02:48:32

Oh gee boy down, down, down.

02:48:34--> 02:48:39

Failure Stan G Eboli. When you mean wubi

02:48:41--> 02:48:41


02:48:43--> 02:48:51

Allah always tells us and if my servants asked you about me, I am always close. I respond to the caller whenever they need me and call out to me.

02:48:53--> 02:48:55

So let them respond to Me.

02:48:56--> 02:49:12

And let them connect with me. Let them secure the Eman in me in that they will find their security and guidance by knowing me. Brothers and sisters, how does Allah connect to us? And how do we connect to him?

02:49:14--> 02:49:15

Through that,

02:49:17--> 02:49:21

are you bad or what is a bad I bet that means worship? How does Allah speak to us?

02:49:22--> 02:49:59

Through the Quran. The Quran is Allah's language to us, just like the mother's language to her child, Allah's language to us through the Quran. Like the Father speaks to his child. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks to us through the Quran. There must be a connection, a speech, a connection, a language. Now imagine that you cut off yourself from the Quran. Then who have you cut off yourself from your Allah your caregiver, your job your Lord, who is the one who's constantly close to you, Allah your Lord. So who is the one who needs to come come

02:50:00--> 02:50:13

To him, you and me. That's why Allah says respond to me. Where are you going? Why are you running away? Why are you running away? Stay connected to me, and I will guide you throughout the way. My brothers and sisters

02:50:17--> 02:50:22

are also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to a young boy by the name of Abdullah ibn Abbas. He said to him,

02:50:23--> 02:50:31

I will teach you some words young men. Do not forget them. He said tell me. He said to him, for the La Jolla folk.

02:50:32--> 02:50:35

Always keep Allah in your life

02:50:36--> 02:50:58

and in your world, and Allah will protect you and keep you near him. If they learn how to shoot who am i MK keep Allah in your life you'll always find them in front of you.

02:51:57--> 02:52:24

And then the prophets are seldom said the horror of Illa Allah He Pharaoh, ha. He said again, know your Lord when you are at ease and comfort. Your difficulties should he will know you in times of hardship while I'm in office. Sobre Allah Takara Hi, Ron cathedra and know that everything you hate in life, with patience and perseverance, not giving up in that is so much good. The worship of patience.

02:52:25--> 02:52:33

Well, hello, I'm Anna nostra ma Sado. And know that victory only comes with perseverance and patience.

02:52:34--> 02:52:35

victory comes with what?

02:52:36--> 02:52:43

perseverance and patience not sitting down and making diet and the next day expect the sky to open up and angels flutter down. No, no, no.

02:52:44--> 02:53:02

It comes with perseverance and patience. You have to keep going. Like the palm tree the prophesy Selim describes the believer like the palm tree, it bends with the wind and with the storm, and after the storm is gone, the palm tree is resilient. It stands up again, but don't doesn't move away from its origin.

Then he said sal Allahu Allah, he was Salam wa Enel Faraj Omar Al Karim. And that relief comes relief and opening comes with hardships and calamities.

02:53:18--> 02:53:19

I always say this.

02:53:20--> 02:53:24

A baby does not learn how to walk without falling.

02:53:26--> 02:53:35

Forgiveness is not known without being hurt and wronged. Mercy is not understood without rights being taken.

02:53:37--> 02:53:40

Good is not known unless you know the bed.

02:53:42--> 02:53:46

Health is not appreciated. Without pain.

02:53:47--> 02:54:16

Happiness is not hoped for and attractive without sadness. And love means nothing without loss. The only reason Adam Alayhis Salam ate from the tree was because he thought there's a secret that he's missing out on but when he ate from it and Allah subhanaw taala showed him that curiosity for something which Allah had forbidden is not a good thing.

02:54:18--> 02:54:59

Adam still learned something that he would have never learned to before had he not accidentally disobeyed and what is that? He learned to mercy and forgiveness as MLA sent him would have not known what it means and we inherited mercy and forgiveness is not known without mistakes. And without wronging one another, then we forgive one another and mend and watch, you know with between husband and wife, whenever they're upset with each other and they reconcile. The love is even better. You feel closer, with relatives with friends, anybody? So brothers and sisters, it is necessary for pain it is necessary for hardships, it is necessary.

02:55:00--> 02:55:22

theory for loss, it is necessary for the negative to know the positive for the bear to know the good for the suffering to know the victory for sickness to know what health is. Otherwise, how do you have all these amazing, beautiful people who stand up for justice, who stand up to heal, who stand up to protect, who stand up to really truly live up to the meaning of love and make a shift in the world, Allah has given us the power.

02:55:23--> 02:55:28

Allah has given us the power. Allah did not leave us like a little child who is spoiled.

02:55:29--> 02:56:07

A spoiled child I've ever seen a spoiled children, nobody wants to be around them. They think everything belongs to them. Because their parents pampered them rotten when they were little kids that gave them everything until the children grew up, and even don't even appreciate their parents, let alone anyone else. Through spoiling and giving someone everything will ruin you. That's why Allah sometimes reminds us by taking away something, he takes away something. And then something in here changes. Something in here changes. The only people who don't see the benefit of it are the ones who decide to think negatively about Allah, and not one of the names of Allah subhanho wa

02:56:07--> 02:56:22

taala. In the Quran, which he has mentioned to us is negative. It's only negative because you think about it that way. But if you don't and you know that the prophets Allah said Lim said that Allah said, Ananda Vanya appdb I am as my servant chooses to think of me.

02:56:23--> 02:56:36

Allah is not negative, every name of Allah that you have ever read about the 99 names of Allah. None of them is negative. And even if you hear a name that seems negative to you, always has a name before it that is positive. And example.

02:56:38--> 02:56:46

When Allah mentions the negative name that appears to us he mentions a positive name that appears positive to us, for example, a bar what comes after that?

02:56:47--> 02:56:48

What's after a bar.

02:56:49--> 02:57:00

And now nerfing. A daughter means the hammer. And nephew means the benefit and Hatfield, the one who demotes what comes after that?

02:57:01--> 02:57:04

A referral, the one who promotes

02:57:06--> 02:57:09

and marinara, the one who denies what comes after that.

02:57:11--> 02:57:22

What comes after that? I'll Moratti the one who gives. In other words, the scholar said, Allah does not give you or allow for you to get sick unless

02:57:23--> 02:57:36

he is going to heal you. He will not allow you go through suffering unless he's going to give you something he will not demote you unless he's going to promote you. He will not take something from you unless he's going to give you

02:57:38--> 02:57:44

when a person hits rock bottom is only upwards. The only one who chooses to stay down is you.

02:57:46--> 02:57:54

We all hear those motivational speeches for those of you who have got ambitions and goals in the morning, and you switch on YouTube and go to those motivational talkers.

02:57:56--> 02:58:03

Say I can, that's what they say. You can do it and the world is listening. The Quran has already told you

02:58:04--> 02:58:12

keep Allah in your life and you see all the doors opening. Brothers and sisters do not be one of those who gives up when you hit rock bottom.

02:58:13--> 02:59:02

For in the story of Musa alayhis salaam is great lessons. You will know the story of Moses Alayhis Salam, he killed a guy from among the pharaohs. He was honored, respected, he lived a life of luxury and power with the Pharaoh because of his wife. Asya. Holly has Salam among the most beautiful and among the most perfect women of the world, ser Alayhis Salam, she looked after him, but when he killed someone accidentally, he became a fugitive and he was going to be caught arrested and killed. In the story of Musa and social costs. We read that Musa alayhis salaam ran away, he ran away to another territory which the Pharaoh had no authority over. He went towards meridian. Allah subhanho

02:59:02--> 02:59:15

wa Taala talks about this story. And then he says that he rushed he ran away with nothing with him no wealth, no food, no water. He lost all the kingdom and everything. He left his mother behind his family behind his brother behind everybody.

02:59:17--> 02:59:20

The hadith says that he reached the point in the deserts that he shoes.

02:59:21--> 02:59:37

They all became broken and his feet. The skin on his feet became peeled and his stomach almost stuck to his back from hunger. And the only thing he was eating with the leaves of trees, his tongue turn green.

02:59:38--> 02:59:43

Allah says that when he reached Allah says while I'm watering down

when he arrived at the spring of Midian, he found there a crowd of people watering their flocks. And he found apart from them to women holding their flocks back. He asked the women, what is it that troubles you? They said, We cannot water our flocks until the shepherds, the men take their flocks away. And our father is a very old man, very smart, young ladies. They said to Him, our father is a very old man, he is a respected wise man. So don't get any thoughts. That's what they were telling him. At the same time, we need to come out to work. And there's nothing wrong with women working if there is a benefit and a need. And even if she wants to work for her ambition, she canceled on this

03:01:04--> 03:01:45

holiday and within limits insha Allah. However, the story that I want to point out the lesson I'm going to point out in there is not that the point that I wanted to point out is to focus on Musa alayhis salam, and focus on those two girls to his two ladies whose father is an old man and they are desperately in need of going and doing the stuff that men have to do and they've got a mix with them. And at the same time they're destitute, Musa alayhis salam is so much in need. As soon as they said, Our father is an old man and so on and so forth. He could have told them, get me some help, go and talk to him. I need help. But instead, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala, he says, First so Carla houmous.

03:01:47--> 03:01:55

In the fall, call out or be in a phone call out on being in

03:01:59--> 03:02:16

a mean area physically. On hearing this, Moses watered their flocks for before them, and then returned in a shaded place and said, My Lord, I am truly in great need of any good that you might send down to me.

03:02:17--> 03:02:27

You know, brothers, sisters, if you look at that image, any one of us will be seeking help. But Allah says that he quietly reversed

03:02:28--> 03:02:35

into the shade and the darkness of the forest. And he sat there alone under a tree.

03:02:36--> 03:03:15

And he lifted his dark to Allah saying, oh my lord with respect, out of all the goodness that you brought down to me, I'm still in need. This is how we asked Allah subhanho wa taala. Some of us when we ask Allah, we so why hasn't Allah responded to me? I said, Oh Allah give me money. He hasn't given me children. He hasn't saved me hasn't cured me. He hasn't No, no, no, no. The prophets were never asked Allah they said, Oh Allah with all the goodness and blessings that you have given meaning, have a strong mindset. Always remember the blessings that you still have, because they're going to be your strength, use them, but at the same time, request Allah's assistance, for without

03:03:15--> 03:03:17

him, you can, you are nothing.

03:03:18--> 03:03:30

And then when he called out to Allah, he had hit rock bottom. In other words, yet brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala then brought the young ladies team, from places he listed he never expected.

03:03:32--> 03:03:53

And they said, Our father would like to reward you for the good that you did for us. And this shows you modesty in these young ladies. And Allah says that one of them came back with modesty and shyness, not the shyness that you think it's not the shyness where you ask a person what's their name? And they don't know how to answer

03:03:55--> 03:04:43

is the shyness of modesty, meaning, a modesty that she chooses who will hear her and who will see her and who will get to see her other side and who doesn't, that type of shyness or self respect. And she said to him, My father wants to reward you. So when he went there, we know the whole story, Allah subhanaw taala opened up a whole new world for him. He got married to one of them, and she was interested in him and he was interested in her and her father respected him and held him in high degree. And he was well protected. Here while his self esteem went up. Of course, it was never down but he felt in need, but his need was fulfilled number one through marriage number two, through a

03:04:43--> 03:04:50

place where he belonged. And number three through working and earning a living. Allah subhanaw taala opened up a door for him

03:04:51--> 03:04:55

after he hit rock bottom, and that's what the scholars tell us.

03:04:56--> 03:04:57

My * dirty

Yeah, till

03:05:02--> 03:05:03

with hardship

03:05:04--> 03:05:23

comes relief. I want you to know something, the harder your life gets in something. Know that the tougher it gets, the closer it is to relief. the tougher it gets, the closer it is to what? To relief.

03:05:25--> 03:05:26

So don't worry.

03:05:28--> 03:05:28

Don't worry

03:05:29--> 03:05:39

and rely on Allah and keep going. For this is a story and the lesson that Allah brings us in the Quran to comfort our hearts, and a story and the lesson

03:05:40--> 03:05:57

in a yo Valley hustler. And a story in a lesson in unicyclists Sara, you and us made a mistake. You might say Moses, Allah your Salah, he was a fugitive he had to run away wasn't his fault. Y'all know Salah is Salam left his people without permission from Allah.

03:05:59--> 03:06:01

And then when the big fish swallowed him

03:06:02--> 03:06:03

he said something

03:06:05--> 03:06:09

as Allah says, well then no need

a lot concludes by telling us and remember the story of the noon the man of the big fish, you will know Sally's Salah

03:07:12--> 03:07:16

when he left angrily with his people.

03:07:17--> 03:07:25

And he assumed they had he hadn't done anything wrong and that we will not hold them accountable for what he did.

03:07:28--> 03:07:36

And then he found himself calling out to Allah in his high pitched voice while he is in the darkness.

03:07:37--> 03:07:45

Oh my Lord, there is no God worthy of worship but you I have truly become among the wrongdoers to myself.

03:07:47--> 03:08:08

To myself, The way out is to look inwards, and say to yourself, What have I done wrong? So that's the other side. You cannot grow unless you are honest with yourself. Allah says and so we saved him. We saved him from the lum lum literally means claustrophobia.

03:08:09--> 03:08:26

And that's a metaphor for the claustrophobia of life. You know when you say I feel the whole world has caved in on me. Whether it's from your marriage, whether it's because you're single for so long, whether it's from your children, whether it's from your parents, your friends, your work, your wealth, your health, it doesn't matter what it is.

03:08:27--> 03:09:13

Minimalism, we saved him from the claustrophobia. We opened up the world for him. What early cannon Gillmor Mini and and like that, we also save and open up the world. For the true believers. What does it mean to true believer and what meaning comes from Amman, which means to secure in your heart, the trust and the feeling of safety and trust and reliance upon Allah, that he will relieve you. But you have to do your little part as well. My brothers and sisters with hardship comes ease in allostery Israa with every hardship comes many aces, all it needs is sobor. perseverance, perseverance, continue going, don't give up.

it. Rely on Allah do what is needs to be done. And say Oh Allah, I am with you. And you are with me.

03:09:23--> 03:09:59

I ask Allah subhanahu wata Isla, to relieve all of you, my brothers and sisters, and all of our brothers sisters around the world from all their hardships and to assist them with patience and perseverance. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to change any hardship that you have into comfort and into goodness, any sickness into health, every pain into relief and every fear into protection and security.

Inshallah parents that are here today as well thinking guy, you know, doesn't bother my children just yet. This is a this is also a premarital course. So if you have a child and child that 16 years of age or above Sharla you know Don't feel shy this is actually perfectly good course for them as well as Sharla

03:13:30--> 03:13:31


03:13:33--> 03:13:35

Next, next page, please inshallah me better?

03:13:37--> 03:13:46

Just to summarize, Inshallah, what kind of lessons we do have. Just to summarize, we talk about the nature and virtues of marriage. Okay. Sometimes people have

03:13:47--> 03:14:20

yearning, they don't actually want to get married, they have these doubts, they have this perception of marriage, they, perhaps it's quite bad to the point that they don't want to get married at all. They detest perhaps a certain opposite gender, and Subhanallah we have a lot of these, you know, problems nowadays. We would like to discuss that from an exam perspective, the nature and virtues of marriage in Islam, why it happens, you know, why it takes place, the benefits of it, why Allah Subhana Allah talks about it in the Quran. And it's actually very, very interesting. I enjoyed editing that one of my favorite actually, parts of the course was looking into that because

03:14:20--> 03:14:26

sometimes you forget the full end of something. And then you watch it and you realize Subhan Allah, Allah is wisdom is truly divine.

03:14:28--> 03:14:42

We will talk about how to choose a spouse. They say, the right of your future child Subhanallah the right of your child is you selecting a you know, actual spouse that's good for you. How do you know what's a good spouse?

03:14:44--> 03:14:58

Is Easy got reminders account and Instagram or Tiktok? Right? How do we how are we able to understand or judge between a good person or a bad person one on one, and there's something that's very important in Islam. We discuss this a lot in detail in sha Allah from all the Musharraf actually

03:15:00--> 03:15:20

Nikka with a wedding William how everything takes place. You know the stuff like this the formalities, right. It's really simple. Honestly editing this course I realized it's a very simple process, the Nikka the Lima is pretty simple even the engagement period is very simple. And then obviously there's other tardiness cultures get involved in the differences and so on so forth. But it's very important that we look into that as well.

03:15:21--> 03:15:39

Hot Topic rights help organizzata xojo. Right, a very, very, very hot topic in terms of a lot of people are saying next UFC they want you know, what are my rights? What are my rights, but it's very important to understand the philosophy of how Islam looks into these rights, and it changes your perspective. Subhanallah honestly, like I said,

03:15:40--> 03:16:15

taking part in this process for the past few months, I realized it's a very, very, very important subject. And lastly, we have to talk about the, you know, the worst possible case scenario, which is divorce or hula, and how that takes place as well. It's very, very important as a premarital course, before you get any put it on your marriage TVs panela put on your marriage cvrd before you get married, I took this course I took a three part series course I covered all of these things. Yeah. And Inshallah, you know, maybe the potential spouse might take that into consideration by Next slide, please. And there's going to be some some questions. I want to pose to you guys rhetorical

03:16:15--> 03:16:46

questions, potentially you guys don't answer these questions. I just reverted to Islam by have 10 wives. Okay, let's assume this guy's William and he's a moment. Okay, he's living in America. There's actually a culture. I didn't know this question was even possible. But that actually does exist, right? There's a guy who has 10 wives. He's just converted to Islam, hypothetically speaking. What does he do in the situation? Right? I don't know why I'm answering this question to answer the I don't I didn't choose. I didn't really agree to this question. But it's stuff like this is something important to know in terms of perspective, is it halal or what? What should what should

03:16:46--> 03:17:25

next do in terms of his remaining wives? Play? Next slide, please. The Shalya are honeymoons haram. Okay. So some of the scholars say shadow shadow bustle, right. There's the the honeymoon. And it's the onion moon because after a period of joy sometimes start crying. Yeah. But the point is, is it haram itself? Do we all have to be Tober? Yeah, I took part in a honeymoon honeymoon. Yeah, whatever it is, you'll find out the answer that Sharla which isn't too bad of an answer. Hopefully, you guys would be okay with that. Next question, can I force my husband not to marry a second wife as part of my contract? Now, what's interesting by having three instructors is that this question is answered

03:17:25--> 03:17:59

very, very well, from all the three instructors in Sharla. So you'll get to get a very good holistic, comprehensive answer to that question before I get him in pushes me off inshallah. But here's how I think about that inshallah. And think about this course in Sharla. Just to clarify this course, is not 250 pounds, it's not 1000 pounds. It's not like some expensive Marriage Course that you find in any general Marriage Course you find online, go on YouTube, type in Google wherever it is, is something as cheap as 25 pounds for you guys today. Insha Allah, the first 50 people that sign up today is 25 pounds, not 5025 pounds in Charlotte, it's something that you will get for life.

03:24:26--> 03:24:28

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

03:24:32--> 03:25:00

Smilla he will Hamdulillah he was salatu salam ala Rasulillah Heba Allah, Allah, he was a big man in the Quran is a divine book, you know that I know that. Something amazing I'm going to start off my speech by is all the scriptures, all those who are following divine books that they call divine. You and I know that the Quran is the most authentic

03:25:00--> 03:25:51

And by virtue of it not having been changed at all, nothing was changed. And some people argue no, this was changed that was to bring your books that are proven to be changed by the masses of today and it's being changed constantly, you will find the Quran goes back to the furthest point, even if you think and you claim that it was changed, which we don't agree, you will always find that it goes back further than any other scripture. The point of argument, so if you say it was changed, we asked you when was he changed? You will come up with the date perhaps according to you, that would be far behind the dates of the other scriptures being tampered with. May Allah grant us the understanding

03:25:51--> 03:26:32

that this is indeed a divine book, another beautiful point. The Quran is the only heavenly book wherein you find Allah Almighty, or the one whose word it is the one who revealed it is addressing the messenger, and the message is for us. So he's addressing the messenger or addressing us, it's not a disciple talking. It's not someone else speaking, it's not a third party, having compiled books and so on. The Quran has a uniqueness and this is why those who've read the other scriptures and I've read a lot of other scriptures,

03:26:33--> 03:27:21

they would be able to tell immediately as they opened the Quran, that this is something unique because it has in it the direct addressing of the maker himself. So because the Light upon light this year is themed upon the Quran and the divinity of the Quran. I started off by letting you know indeed, it is an amazing book. It's the only book in existence that you can actually memorize from cover to cover without a single mistake. I know people who can read it so many who can read it from cover to cover with all its stops and pauses and the different disciplines of learning within the recitation of the Quran, the translation of the Quran without making a blunder. No other book not

03:27:21--> 03:27:23

even the short booklets that people write.

03:27:25--> 03:28:17

No other book is memorized in that particular way. It's amazing. And Allah Almighty encourages all of us to make an effort to connect to his word. Why? Because you and I were created by the creator for us to succeed on Earth. We need to connect with that creative and the only way to connect is by connecting ourselves with the word of the Creator. His message that came to us primarily the Quran, and the Quran will lead you to following the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad May peace be upon him. So understand that if you're part of the ummah of the Quran, you're blessed. If you were to look at any other scripture, that the followers might claim is our scripture or heavenly so on the Quran,

03:28:17--> 03:28:58

outshines all of them. And this is told even by the disbelievers from the time of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him you look at a lacuna signature rake Abuja Hall and the others who used to tiptoe in order to listen to the words the beautiful melodious recital of the Quran, the words of ALLAH, when they came back at one point, they had to admit to say, You know what, it has a sweetness, it has a beauty, it has some amazing meaning. It is absolutely perfect linguistically to the degree that the Arabs after revelation of the Quran, began to use the Quran

03:28:59--> 03:29:56

in order to correct their own language. Anyone who learns Arabic, cannot avoid the Quranic verses, because a lot of the rules and regulations of Arabic derived from the Quran, yet Arabic precedes the Quran. It is because the perfection of the language is indeed something worth noting, from Allah, the word of Allah. The words of the Quran are amazing. Allah Almighty starts it in a unique way, even though the revelation of it through 23 years happened to be in a different order. And it's interesting to learn that order for purposes of understanding for purposes of looking at how Islam and the rules that were laid down came about, but the worship of Allah and the recitation of the

03:29:56--> 03:29:59

Quran in prayer or as an Ibadah needs to be in

03:30:00--> 03:30:38

order of revelation. So it is Surah Al Fatiha and you read it as the surah. Even if there are some verses of Surah Al Baqarah that might have been revealed later on but they appear earlier in the Surah. You need to read it in a specific way. May Allah grant us a deep understanding. Now, did you know that every one of you seated here has contributed towards the protection of the word of Allah, every one of you has contributed towards the protection of the word of Allah, you might want to know how do you know how? Let me explain.

03:30:40--> 03:30:42

Who knows Surah Al Fatiha put up your hand

03:30:44--> 03:31:08

can we read it together? Repeat after me or with me with me Alhamdulillah Bill Amin Rahmani Raheem, Maliki Woombye been a gunner boudoir gun, a stallion and then a slim up stepping so Lavina I'm dialing him waiting

03:31:11--> 03:31:21

on me mean, I mean, who from amongst you does not know the Arabic language Put up your hands Hi.

03:31:23--> 03:31:23


03:31:24--> 03:32:00

That's the majority of you. Mashallah. But what did you do? You read an entire Surah of the Quran in Arabic. And I'm sure you know the meanings of those words. Even though you don't speak Arabic, you don't really understand deeper Arabic but some of the sutras did you not make an effort to learn them the way they were revealed? If the answer is yes, congratulations, Allah used you to contribute towards the preservation of the Quran. People say why do I have to read the Quran in Arabic in Salah when I stand up in prayer and I say Allahu Akbar.

03:32:01--> 03:32:21

And I have to read verses of the Quran in Arabic, I get asked the question, Can I not read in English? And the answer is not in Salah. In the prayer you have to read the Arabic. And then the question comes but why? The answer is we are taught to adjust ourselves in order

03:32:22--> 03:32:43

to understand the word of Allah not to adjust the word of Allah for us to understand it you need to contribute towards the preservation of the book and when you do that, you will be protected by Allah. Look, if you want to be protected every morning every evening, you need to read certain verses who can tell me the most important one said loudly

03:32:44--> 03:32:55

There you go. I Atul kursi right. Do we know AYATUL kursi put up your hand oh there that the yes came mashallah everyone. I put up both hands because I know it twice. Mashallah. Okay.

03:32:56--> 03:33:44

I Atul kursi we know it we know Koolau the bearable fella Koolau verbenas. Imagine when you read these verses you are automatically protected and wallah you are now one wonders, how did Allah keep protection in repeating his words, because the devil will never come close to you shape man will never come to temper with YOU JIN kind jealousy will not bother you affect you black magic will not bother you affect you. Because what you have come up what you have come with is something that created a solid protection around you. And this even the enemy best witness regarding Subhanallah it's the word of Allah. And this is why when Allah says in an Act known as Zelner Vic rawa in Allah

03:33:44--> 03:34:04

hula Hatfield, whoa, we have revealed this reminder, we have revealed the Quran and we will protect it. It would mean if you made an effort to memorize it, and it is in your heart, Allah has to protect you. Because you have the Quran in your heart, Allah will protect you.

03:34:05--> 03:34:55

You don't need to fear anyone or anything you have the Quran. So my brothers, my sisters, if you want to protect yourself and you want to improve in your confidence, you want to improve in your character and conduct you must connect with the word of Allah, it does for you miracles, that which you may know that which you may not know. And this is why Allah says in this Quran and in its versus in their meanings and in adopting what it says you have a cure for the diseases of the heart cure for what lies within the ribcage or the chest. Allah Almighty has cure both physical and spiritual in verses of the Quran. Are you going to read the Quran? The difficulty is we don't connect with it

03:34:55--> 03:34:59

soon. There is a month of Ramadan how many days remaining for Ramadan? Does anyone know

03:35:00--> 03:35:03

How many days remaining for Ramadan? Anyone know?

03:35:08--> 03:35:09

60 What else

03:35:11--> 03:35:12

90 What else

03:35:15--> 03:35:16

can I tell you?

03:35:17--> 03:35:28

beginning of March that's when Ramadan is going to start 2024 In sha Allah. I think the first second week of March, right? Someone counted 73 I think they are right 73 Right.

03:35:29--> 03:36:03

My brothers and sisters that's the month of Ramadan coming many of us unfortunately connect with the Quran in the month of Ramadan claiming that that is the month of the Quran. It is the month of the Quran in which the Quran was revealed. But Allah wants you to connect with the Quran for the entire year. Just like a person who's bothered about halal and haram only when Ramadan comes but they're not bothered about halal and haram outside of Ramadan. That is a last that's a waste of time. You need to be bothered about halal and haram throughout the year but more conscious of it in the month of Ramadan.

03:36:04--> 03:36:12

So it should make you conscious of Allah the book of Allah he I invite you this evening to do something amazing.

03:36:13--> 03:36:14

We're ready for the invitation.

03:36:16--> 03:36:20

Every day, start your day with at least a verse of the Quran.

03:36:21--> 03:36:28

Did you hear what I said? I invite you to start your day with at least a verse of the Quran at least one verse

03:36:31--> 03:36:32

is it a good invitation?

03:36:33--> 03:36:44

Masha Allah, we're all saying yes, Alhamdulillah in sha Allah, we make use of the apps that are on our phones, I'm sure we all have apps on our phones that have the Quran, am I right?

03:36:45--> 03:37:26

It's written there so that we can read, there is an app, I know Quran Li, it actually counts for you, it counts for you a lot of the rewards and so on, although you would be rewarded more than that based on your intention. But this is just the basic that's promised to you by Allah. And on top of that, it shows you the others who are also reading Quran in your contacts, and how much they are reading every day and you can compete with each other in a good way. So that's just one but there are so many other apps. The difficulty is we have at times multiple apps on our phones, we haven't made use of them. And then we say You know what, I'm a Muslim, I'm connected to Allah. The first

03:37:26--> 03:37:45

basic thing is the Quran, connect with it, then say I'm a Muslim inshallah I will follow as best as I can. When we're speaking, but if you're say, if you're saying I'm a Muslim, and you're not connected with the Quran, there is something wrong. You need to improve I need to improve to so start your day with a verse of the

03:37:46--> 03:38:30

Quran. And in sha Allah if you do that your life will change. Firstly, you can recite it, you can look into its meaning. You can ask questions if you don't understand. You can look into reasons of Revelation, you can look into rules and regulations and so much more. One verse, I tell you, the Quran has many miracles that come with it. Those who say I don't have time to read the Quran, read the Quran and see how Allah gives you more time in your day He blesses your day such that when you read Quran in that day, you will have a lot of time, the Quran creates its own time for you because it's the word of Allah. If you're dedicated, don't ever say I don't have time to read the Quran, you

03:38:30--> 03:38:52

say no matter what, I'm going to read the Quran and then see how Allah gives you blessings in your time so that you can achieve so much through that day. And then another miracle of the Quran is when you start with one verse, you won't be able to continue just with one verse, it will continue to two and then three, and then four, and then more.

03:38:54--> 03:39:24

So you end up reading a whole page a day, you end up reading more and then you start memorizing things. You know, I'm always baffled by how people, they want their kids at a very young age to learn every song that there is in the market, whatever song is on Spotify, Spotify, whatever other fi there is, everyone's learnt it and they learn the moves of the same songs on which app

03:39:25--> 03:39:59

on which app don't pretend like you don't know. Tick tock there goes mashallah, you see, we learn the most but I tell you what, without realizing that I could have spent my time learning verses of the Quran, when you have a little kid the first things that you put into the sponge, it is taken in and absorbed more than anything else and the life is being molded at that point. So when your life is being molded and whatever you're absorbing happens to be divorced from Allah and the message

03:40:00--> 03:40:36

Now that Allah has given us, what do you expect as an outcome, rather, we let the child absorb beautiful recital of the Quran recently I came across a lovely recited by the name of Mohamed El Fateh from Yemen. Have you heard that name? No, you can check him out young guy, And subhanAllah beautiful melodious recital. I swear I could sit all night and hear the entire Quran listen to it and concentrate. That's how beautiful the recital is people asked me who's your favorite reader? Can you guys say a few names? Who's your favorite recited just call out names.

03:40:38--> 03:40:41

Abdul Basit my Achille who else?

03:40:42--> 03:40:43

Machinery? Who else?

03:40:46--> 03:40:46

Who else

03:40:48--> 03:40:51

NSL Emma D. Who else?

03:40:53--> 03:41:02

Look at all the names mashallah beautiful, right? I have a different favorite recited in different moods. How's that one?

03:41:03--> 03:41:43

I promise you and I'm not cheating, by the way. Sometimes you listen to so many Haytham a Dehaene. For example, Hamza al Belushi. For example, this guy Muhammad Al Fateh, I'm talking about a guy known as Radel Cordy. A guy known so many recitals, one after the other, there are tons and tons of them available and Wallahi I tell you, depending on your mood, each one will help you by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala to come down too soon to fulfill that within you that needs fulfilling because you are connected with the Quran. Just by listening. Imagine if you are reading imagine if you try to read with a melodious tone, I once told some people a gathering that you must make an

03:41:43--> 03:41:44

effort to read with a melody.

03:41:46--> 03:42:33

So one of the ladies messaged me later and told me it's so difficult to read with a melody I said you have to you must it's only you. It's only you in your room. But instead of looking at the Quran and saying the Likkle kita Ebola you Buffy who de Lille moto Kane and levena You may know Nabil maybe it's not wrong to do that. But Allah wants you to beautify it. Then he can kita Ebola boy Buffy mood, mood thing. See the difference? Amazing. And the sister tells me about two weeks later that I can't believe that contentment. I feel I'm happy. I'm so happy. I was sad and depressed. I look forward to reading the word of Allah and telling Allah Oh ALLAH for you, I'm doing this.

03:42:33--> 03:43:18

Listen, listen to this Subhan Allah. May Allah Almighty grant us ease. I remember one day I traveled with a certain brother. And he sings in the sheets. And someone came up to him and told him, I know you're on the sheet. Can I sing it for you? And he says, Okay, and this little child singing the machine exactly the way the singer sings. And the child was excited. The parents were excited, the singer was extremely happy. And we're sitting there enjoying the moment something struck me later on. I said, Imagine you and I sitting in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, I learned your word. I know the words I want to I it's not it's not a song. So it's not a matter of singing. I want

03:43:18--> 03:43:24

to recite them for you alone in the best possible way. Imagine how that would be.

03:43:25--> 03:43:27

See, are you ready to do that in sha Allah,

03:43:28--> 03:43:37

Allah he will change your life. We're talking about the Quran today. We still have a few more days those of you who may not be able to attend the Light upon light

03:43:39--> 03:43:55

events in the next few days you can watch it online in sha Allah, but you will see a continuation of what we started off here today in Manchester by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters the Quran has any chief Yeah Are you super danger

03:43:58--> 03:43:58


03:43:59--> 03:44:01

be watching if

03:44:03--> 03:44:06

only Murphy's sudo Huda

03:44:07--> 03:44:15

mental meaning, guidance and mercy for believers that's in the Quran. A reminder from Allah.

03:44:16--> 03:44:40

The light from Allah the guidance from Allah Shiva from Allah cure for that which is in the chest Subhan Allah, all this from Allah reminder, Allah reminds you to do good things do you know anything that Allah has prohibited cannot benefit you. And anything that Allah has made, an obligation has to be beneficial and will never harm you.

03:44:41--> 03:44:59

So if Allah tells you, you need to stay away from X, Y and Zed, you do not participate in x, y and Zed so that you can lead a beautiful life. Sometimes you may not understand immediately why Allah Almighty prohibited this. Sometimes you might falter and fall into X or Y

03:45:00--> 03:45:30

Oh Zed, or both, or three, all three of them or two of them. That doesn't mean that you are disconnected from Allah for as long as you know that Allah has prohibited this and I should not be doing it. But human weakness made me falter. Let me quickly come up and seek the forgiveness of Allah. You saw the forgiveness of Allah, you came back up and Allah says, you're back on track Don't falter again. But that's Allah. When Allah says something, it's because it's good for you the way he said it.

03:45:31--> 03:46:12

You might understand later on there are so many things that we are looking at today. And we realize the Quran is the truth. today. We have 1000s of people looking at the Quran scrutinizing the words, non Muslims, people who probably hated Islam not too long ago, but because of what's happening in Philistine and we pause for a moment to say oh Allah help our brothers and sisters in Palestine. Oh Allah grant them victory grant them mercy grant him goodness grant them safety, grant them security, Oh Allah, we ask you to be there for them. Because we are so weak, we can barely be there for them. May Allah Almighty forgive our shortcomings, and may Allah Almighty strengthen the Ummah so that we

03:46:12--> 03:46:56

can stand up truly for our brothers and sisters who are struggling in Philistine Amin Yara Bella Alameen. But if you look at what happened there, it caused a an interest in the Quran. And in Islam, so many people began to look at it from the non Muslims and guess what? They started turning to Islam in their 1000s Yet we who are predominantly born Muslims, do not value the Quran. We don't value this message. You find these people coming and saying, You know what? I found something amazing. The Quran has answered my question the Quran, wow. The Quran has spoken this and spoken that we haven't even gone through its meanings, we should be embarrassed, we should be ashamed. And

03:46:56--> 03:47:24

it's a fact. Because if you don't know the meanings of the Quran, and you were born a Muslim, and today, you're 20 or 30 or 40 years old, you have indeed wasted your life. You've wasted you, you don't know the most important book, the most important message in existence, you don't even know it. May Allah strengthen all of us. That's why I started off by saying, we are going to read one verse, or what a day, one verse

03:47:25--> 03:48:11

minimum, beyond that inshallah Allah will take you and we will float and we will go ahead, my brothers and sisters, the Quran is a miracle if you read a single letter of the Quran you earn rewards. 10 rewards minimum as you go more and more you're getting more reward more reward. The Quran has in it an amazing unique power the Quran has in it's something that is inexplicable, you need to you need to read it in order to feel it and you will realize this is indeed the gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Allahu Allah Yaga will be handled Kitabi acquirement while ba will be here hurrying through the same book, Allah elevates some people and the same book Allah drops some

03:48:11--> 03:48:53

people you are connected to it Allah elevates you look at those who are recited of the Quran. We know them we named so many of them. What is your connection with them? It's only that they can recite the Quran in a beautiful melodious way. What is another connection, no other connection? There are Muslimeen who can read the Quran? I've benefited from the recitation. I love this recitation. For example, Yunus a swale is a guy from North Africa. What a lovely recital. MashAllah Tabata Kala, a guy called Hassan salah, now based in America reading so beautifully, what's my connection with these people? Nothing besides the word of Allah. So Allah elevates people through

03:48:53--> 03:49:02

the Quran, and then some have dropped through the same Quran. And that's why you find people they spend their entire lives trying to find fault in the Quran.

03:49:03--> 03:49:06

It started from the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

03:49:07--> 03:49:49

They tried to find fault in the Quran, they couldn't. And they kept on picking on things picking on it's going to happen right to the end of time. If you're a Muslim, and you don't know the response to something that someone has said against the Quran, you need to learn it. You don't just become impressed by someone who supposedly found a fault. There are no faults. There is no contradiction. Not at all. But the unsuspecting those who don't have knowledge. They might think that oh, these guys are quite, you know, they've studied and they found some mistakes, no errors, no errors, not at all. May Allah Almighty grant us the ability to understand how gifted we are. It has in it the news

03:49:49--> 03:50:00

of those before us the news of those who are to come after us and the rulings of whatever we may require in our current

03:50:00--> 03:50:00


03:50:01--> 03:50:26

This is what the Quran has in it. It has prophecies of the future. It has the stories of the past and it has the rulings, rules and regulations that would apply presently everything is for a reason. And it is there because Allah wants to teach us lessons. I'll give you a quick example. There are 1000s of Prophets, those whom we know those whom we don't know Allah has mentioned in the Quran, how many

03:50:28--> 03:50:33

25 Someone said 25 Well done, well done Mashallah. How old are you?

03:50:35--> 03:50:49

1314 I thought you were 25 Mashallah. Nonetheless Masha Allah. Allah mentioned 25 prophets in the Quran. But how many prophets were there were there not 1000s of them? Allah says, wala cada Arosa.

03:50:51--> 03:51:28

Kabhi, Nika Rasulullah Isla Tomi him Allah says before you O Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we sent messengers to their people. And in another verse, Allah says, mean whom Cosna Allah Inca? I mean, huh, Milena pasar lake from among them, we told you some of about some of them some of their stories and some of their stories we didn't even tell you. So if you look at the stories of the 25 alone, that are in the Quran, which Prophet of Allah is mentioned in the greatest detail in the Quran? Can you say his name?

03:51:29--> 03:51:39

Musa alayhis salam Moses may Prophet May Allah's peace and blessings be on him? Moses, may peace be upon him mentioned the most in the Quran. And thereafter, who do you have?

03:51:42--> 03:52:29

Is Ali salaam, Ibrahim alayhi salam and so many others? How many of them does Allah mentioned the difficulties they faced when they told their communities to come towards Allah, not all of them. Allah didn't mention the details of all of them of their rissalah or the Naboo itself. Allah, for example, use of Alayhis Salam, you know his story, the most amazing story and entire Surah named after the Prophet Joseph May peace be upon him so many powerful lessons for all of us to learn. But Allah did not mention the deep details of all of his data and how the people had asked him and so on, it was concentrated on a certain point. The same applies to some other prophets of Allah. Allah

03:52:29--> 03:53:02

mentioned some of them in great detail. Some of their struggles when they went to their people knew Alayhis Salam is Ali Salam. Allah mentions much more detail about these prophets, with the Prophet Musa alayhis. Salam Allah mentioned so much. Now. Why? Because Allah wants us to draw lesson from all of this. Some people will face different challenges and all the messengers did not face exactly the same challenges. May Allah Almighty grant us an understanding. I heard someone say that Jesus in Islam,

03:53:03--> 03:53:10

I heard someone say that Jesus in Islam is more important than Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because he was mentioned more in the Quran.

03:53:12--> 03:53:49

He brought together two things that are not to be brought together. So what if Muhammad Sallallahu sallam was not mentioned as much as he Sally Salam in the Quran, it doesn't make one more valuable than the other because of the number of times he was mentioned. If that was the case, then Musa alayhis salam should have been the most important, but that's not the case. And if that was the case, then no, and a Salam should have been even more important, and so on. But that's not the case. So don't let someone fool you to tell you this is what this means. And that's what that means. You need to know you need to learn you need to understand, you need to enjoy not just the recitation the

03:53:49--> 03:53:58

meaning look into it, you will learn so much that will Allah He it will grant you are knowledge of Allah in an unshakable way. That's why Allah says

03:53:59--> 03:54:10

pull hell yes, there we lady in LA Munna levy in Allah, Allah moon in Amaya, tada Come on.

03:54:12--> 03:54:29

Are they equal? Those who know and those who don't know? Are they equal? Those who know and those who don't know they're not equal? Indeed, Allah Almighty knows the ones with sound, intellect and knowledge. It is a reminder for them remembrance for them Subhanallah

03:54:30--> 03:54:37

they are the ones who take heed. And that's why Allah says in nama Yaksha Allah I mean eBuddy Lola,

03:54:38--> 03:54:59

the true people who are conscious of Allah in the correct sense and they fear him in the correct sense or those who have knowledge of Allah, you don't know who is Allah, and you don't even know the message of Allah. You've never made an effort to learn it. How are you going to be conscious of him? The Creator who created you, Allah says you know what? We want you to learn

03:55:00--> 03:55:42

And when you learn more, you will understand the beautiful names and qualities of Allah. I want to spend the next 10 minutes of my speech which is the end of my speech on something amazing. Look, we're struggling across the globe, every one of us has our own struggles. The Quran will help you calm you down, it will suit you. It gives you a lot of comfort and positivity. It reminds you and in the Quran, Allah has done everything in a unique divine way. Allah starts the Quran with a certain verse, what is it? According to some scholars Bismillah R Rahman Rahim is a verse of Surah Al Fatiha and according to others, it's not a verse of Surah Fatiha, but you have to say it anyway before you

03:55:42--> 03:55:57

start with reading Surah Al Fatiha so let's look at that Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. I want to start reading Quran what do I do? I say our bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim. I seek the protection in Allah from shaitan the accursed Why do I do that? I do that because Allah says

03:55:58--> 03:56:30

for either Cara del Quran Fs that I've been laying him in a shape on your regime. If you want to read the Quran, you need to seek the protection in Allah from Shaytaan the accursed I want the benefit of it. I don't want Shaitan to temper I want the I want to be able to understand it. I don't want Shetland to temper and so on. So I sought the protection in Allah from shaitan the accursed and then I say Bismillah Hiroshima nurai name. I'm starting in the name of Allah. What does Rahman Rahim mean?

03:56:33--> 03:56:39

The Merciful, the Merciful two different types of mercy, right? the Especially Merciful and,

03:56:40--> 03:56:40


03:56:42--> 03:57:30

Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah mean, you can even say the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful, the Most Merciful, the Most Merciful. Let me quickly tell you the difference between the two. Ar Rahman and Rahim AR Rahman is the all encompassing Mercy of Allah that includes the Muslim, the non Muslim and every other creature of Allah. Allah is so merciful that He is fully merciful. But a Rahim is a special mercy that Allah has dedicated towards the believers. So Allah says the one the Especially Merciful is a Rahim especially merciful for the believers and the mercy that encompasses everything is a Rahman. So Allah says, you should say Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem in the Name of Allah, the One

03:57:30--> 03:57:51

who is the Most Merciful, the Especially Merciful to the believers to Subhan Allah. When I start off that way, two things are highlighted or three number one is I started in the name of Allah because it's his word anyway. And whatever you do that you're supposed to be, that is a matter of importance, you should say Bismillah couldn't do Amarin

03:57:52--> 03:58:38

couldn't do Amarin V. Berlin lamb you take the ofii Bismillah he for Hua Akbar anything important that you're starting Without the Name of Allah, you're chopping it off, you're not going to benefit the proper way. So when you're reading the Quran, you say Bismillah in the Name of Allah, then I'm saying the Most Merciful if Allah wanted, he could have decided to have a different name or quality of his is a Ramadan, not a name of Allah. It is you have a name of a human of Abdul Rahman, the slave of the Most Merciful, abdur-rahim, the slave of the Most Merciful right? So uh, Rahmani Raheem the names of Allah. If Allah wanted, he could have said, the one who punishes the one who is severe

03:58:38--> 03:59:25

in his punishment. He could have said that. No, he wants you to understand he's merciful. When we start the Quran, Al Hamdulillah Hara Bill Allah I mean, the first thing we're starting is the praise of Allah. I'm praising him praise who praise my Lord, He made me I'm here indeed All praise belongs to him. Everything is the ownership of Allah subhanho wa Taala I cannot start by avoiding the praise of Allah I praise Allah in a holistic way. Alhamdulillah All praise belongs to Allah. And who is Allah the same two names and qualities that he named that he mentioned earlier. Alhamdulillah Hera, Bill al Amin Rahmani Raheem if Allah wanted, it could have been different qualities. It could have

03:59:25--> 04:00:00

could have been a quality where he mentioned his anger. He mentioned how severe he is and so on. But no, Allah Almighty chose to say most merciful, most kind, most forgiving, most compassionate that is your Lord. So I want to tell you in the midst of all our struggles, and all our suffering, never ever focus on negatives, focus on the positives and improve yourself. Connect with Allah. Allah is Most Merciful. Allah is Most kind. So many people think I've committed so much of sin that I don't know if Allah will accept me Wallahi those thoughts are from shaitan because Allah is waiting

04:00:00--> 04:00:39

come to accept you and I may Allah forgive me, may Allah forgive all of us. And may we start a new leaf in a beautiful way. So my brothers and sisters, here we are with the names of Allah that he chose right at the beginning being the most beautiful of names. R Rahman r Rahim in so many times Allah speaks about how he is before Rahim, most forgiving, Most Merciful refer to wa Names of Allah mentioned in the Quran are far means one who is oft forgiving. And like you and I, you forgive someone once they do the same thing. You forgive them again, they do the same thing a third time what happens? What happens?

04:00:40--> 04:00:54

Yes, you won't forgive them. You become angry, upset. You want to roll up your sleeves and punch them. I spoke to a woman the other day he says, I'm not naked, my brother. I said I know none of us are naked. He said you don't even know what I'm talking about. What was he talking about?

04:00:55--> 04:00:59

I don't even know maybe he needs to explain to us. May Allah forgive all of us?

04:01:01--> 04:01:02

I think he's talking about

04:01:06--> 04:01:09

you know, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgive us.

04:01:10--> 04:01:20

I am not naked because I have the Quran in me. It For Me is a protection it will protect me by the will of Allah. There goes. The question is

04:01:22--> 04:02:01

how much effort are we going to make? To connect with Allah before we return to Allah? Here are the verses that Allah has revealed, giving us mercy giving us hope in His mercy shaitan comes to us and say no, no, no, no, you've done too much you can't turn to turn to him. People are struggling across the globe. Wallahi if I don't change any we don't change to become better people to become amazing human beings, that are that are pleased with Allah and Allah is pleased with them. When the when the Quran mentions the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah speaks about two things that are the Allahu annum what are the one who Allah is pleased with them? They are pleased with Allah. Are we not pleased with

04:02:01--> 04:02:18

Allah? Whatever condition he keeps us in Allah and Allah will be pleased with us. I love the Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us man I have Balika Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allahu whoever loves the meeting with Allah. Allah loves the meeting with that person. I'm looking forward to meeting with Allah you

04:02:19--> 04:02:47

Subhan Allah so Allah would be looking forward to meeting with you. And if you want to meet with Allah prepare for the day by doing what lots of is still far. Oh ALLAH forgive me. I'm a human. I faltered, I did wrong things. I've really done some embarrassing things. Oh Allah, don't hold it against me. I love you. I worship you alone. Forgive me. I'm looking forward to the day that you're going to take me back. I'm going to worship You and you alone for the rest of my life. When I meet you grant me the best of the best of everything, and grant me the companionship of

04:02:49--> 04:03:33

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, grant me the companionship of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. May Allah Almighty grant that to us. So you go through the verses of the Quran, you find the Mercy of Allah, you find the good and yes, they are warnings they are reminders but I tell you what, when you look at the mercy of Allah in the Quran, you immediately realize my Lord is the most kind, the Most Compassionate, the most amazing, the most loving, the most forgiving, that is Allah He is my Lord. He is the one I'm going to turn to never allow anyone to make you become despondent as a result of a sin. You've committed something wrong you've done or sometimes simply human nature. For

04:03:33--> 04:04:06

as long as you know you're trying to please Allah, you know what's right and wrong. You're trying to focus you becoming a better person, you're seeking the forgiveness of Allah in preparation for the meeting with Allah. You're heading in the right direction may Allah bless all of us. I really am so delighted to see these brothers and sisters all over starting from that corner right at the top there Mashallah. All the way around to this corner right at the top the May Allah bless you all Hakuna Kohli hada SallAllahu wasallam Obara, Karla Nabina Muhammad was Salam alaykum, Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
