Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Now I would like to greet the 1000s of people who are outside this hole so I don't want you to reply me. I am addressing those who did not make it inside. A Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:00:28--> 00:01:11

I was waiting for the response for those from outside for it to be heard by us, but it's okay. Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi wa sallahu wa sallahu wa salam O Allah ka La Mulana via Babu, Allah Allah He was happy he was sending my beloved brothers, my sisters, my dears, sons and daughters. We firstly commenced by praying for our brothers and sisters in Palestine For indeed, it hurts our hearts. What is going on is unprecedented. We cannot imagine what is happening we did not imagine it. We never believed it would happen in front of our eyes with no one doing much or anything meaningful about it. May Allah protect them, may Allah be with them.

00:01:12--> 00:01:39

May Allah Almighty use us to be able to help in whatever way possible to be able to alleviate their struggles, even if it is only by raising our hands and making dua and may Allah subhanahu wa ALLAH forgive our weakness as an ummah, Amin May Allah strengthen us as well. Why are you bad or wrong man in Levine I am Shuna Allah home we have

00:01:41--> 00:02:28

the true worshipers of Allah are the ones who are steadfast. We are speaking about steadfastness today. We've already heard two lectures. I am here to tell you that Allah is the Greatest Allah made me He made you he made all of us he created creation. Allah Almighty is the highest, Allah Almighty is the most kind. He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful, but at the same time, he also is Severe in punishment. May Allah not punish us. May He forgive us. May He have mercy upon us. He says in Surah Surah Furqan verse number 61. Allah Almighty says the Abba can carry Ledi gyla F is

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

Mooney.

00:02:44--> 00:03:43

Glory be to Allah. Who is he? He is the one who put the great stars in the skies. You look at those stars, each one of them is a planet. And do you know that the closest of those stars to us is four and a half light years away? That's the closest star to us. What that means is at night, when you look at the star, it is not there. You are looking at the light, it may not be there you are looking at the light. That was four and a half years ago, it took four and a half years for that light to come to your eyes. That is the distance between you and the closest of the stars. That is my Lord who created this. And if that is the closest imagine how many millions of light years away are those

00:03:43--> 00:03:53

stars that are further away. This is the power of Allah. So never ever think that oh man, you are someone big and haughty. Allah says to us,

00:03:54--> 00:03:58

our lamea one in San Juan, follow up on

He's a human he wants to argue he is so argumentative man, do you know where you started off? Do you know where you came from? Do you know how it was you were a droplet of liquid a droplet prior to that where were you? You don't even know you were with Allah. May Allah Almighty grant us the ability to be humble. May Allah grant us the ability to get closer to him. Fulfill your Salah it does not help Allah it will help you if you miss the salah fulfill it immediately. Don't miss it. But if you do fulfill it as kappa ASAP as soon as possible by the word

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

of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

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

So Allah is declaring his greatness by showing you he is the one glory between him who has placed the great stars in the sky gyla his summer Ibu region. And you know what? Jaya Allah fie has Sirajul will come on money run, depicting the sun and the moon. Allah says that burning lamp referring to the sun and he has also placed the moon, the shining moon in the skies. All of that Allah created for purposes some of them he explained to us, some he may not have explained to us, but we see the movement of the day and the night. So Allah says, Do you know

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

Subhan Allah

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

Lehmann,

00:06:02--> 00:06:07

Amy. Come on the show cool.

00:06:09--> 00:06:13

That's Allah. That's Allah. He made the night and the day.

00:06:14--> 00:06:27

He made the night meet the day, the day meet the night. It keeps rotating that rotation. Allah Almighty says for those who would like to ponder for those who would like to take heed

00:06:28--> 00:07:08

all those who want to show gratitude. Obviously, if you take heed, then you will be able to show gratitude. Thank Allah. Thank Allah that he has placed you on earth. He's given you the opportunity to see the day it's a new day. I owe him Salat al Fajr at the beginning of the day, because he gave me the day. If he gave you midday, you owe him salata dog, if he gave you the afternoon, you owe him Salah to the house. If he gave you the evening you owe him Marguerite if he gave you the night you owe him Anisha that is Allah don't think it benefits Allah Allah He it benefits you. How can you turn away from your Lord? Ya Are you?

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

Son, Oh, my Lord can be a beacon carrying a levy.

00:07:16--> 00:07:43

Gaffar Delock Oh man, what has deceived you away from your Lord, the Most honoring? What has deceived you? Who do you think you are? Do you not believe you are going to return to Allah? Have you not seen others returning to Allah prepare for that day? How do I prepare? Well, Allah says you need to become a slave of Allah. You need to become a slave of the Most Merciful.

00:07:44--> 00:07:51

Immediately after that, in the same surah Allah says, What a bad man in learning I am sure

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

what either

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

God who's

00:07:59--> 00:08:24

amazing versus beautiful versus Allah says, a bad or rough man. One day I went to a school. And this is a true story. I visited a madrasa and I told him who knows the meaning of a bad Rockman Alladhina Yamuna Allah and the Honan is youngsters were just learning Arabic. So the one boy put up his hand and he said, all people whose name is Abdul Rahman, they work properly on Earth.

00:08:25--> 00:09:11

So what do you mean all people whose name is Abdul Rahman, a bad man, he thought that is the plural. So it must be the name of the people. It refers to all of us who claim to be worshipers of Allah. He says, I am the most merciful, Allah the merciful. If you are a worshipper of Allah, truly, you believe in His mercy. So you are the worshipper of the Most Merciful because it is only through the mercy of Allah that you will get Janna. If that is the case, then you will walk on Earth, carry yourself in an easy, humble, respectable manner. When you walk you don't stamp your feet, you don't walk with the haughtiness you greet people you fulfill the rights of how when you walk, you interact

00:09:11--> 00:09:43

with whoever you are supposed to end, you lower your gaze when you have to and so on. All this is in the way you walk as a believer. How do you carry yourself? Today I am here How am I carrying myself? How are you carrying yourself? May Allah Almighty grant us goodness, imagine we are worshipers of the Most Merciful. We are worshippers of the one whose mercy will give us Jana. People say well, you know how will we enter paradise? The answer is not through your deeds but through the mercy of Allah.

00:09:45--> 00:09:57

Not through your deeds through the mercy of Allah. So the question is, why should I do this? If I'm only going to enter Paradise by the mercy of Allah and not with my deeds? It's a good question, right?

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

If I'm only going to end

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

to Paradise by the mercy of Allah and not with my deeds, why should I do deeds? Because it is through those deeds that you will get the Mercy of Allah. That's what it is. You want the Mercy of Allah, then do your deeds, do your best. Do you know what? There is no way that you can have 100% perfection in your Ibadah Allah says, No problem did you do your best? Yes, I did my best, then leave the rest to me. I will accept it from you and I will give you my mercy. Because with my mercy you will enter Jannah if you had to enter Jannah with your Salah alone, without the Mercy of Allah, your Salah might be rejected. It needs the mercy of Allah to be accepted because when you say Allahu

00:10:41--> 00:11:01

Akbar, how much concentration Do you have? Sometimes that is exactly when shaytan comes to tell you something, minimum is you say Allahu Akbar. Next thing there is just one flight, one mosquito, you know the sound of that mosquito. I don't want to make it here but you know what it is and it will just come by your ear, you will end up slapping yourself in Salah.

00:11:03--> 00:11:25

You will end up slapping yourself in Salah because the mosquito has taken your concentration and you start thinking what's going on and then you realize either I didn't kill it. Oh there is another one with the other year. La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah, Allah says My Mercy, you did you try your best? Yes, I did. Well, then my mercy will be granted to you and you will enter Jannah with my mercy may Allah grant us Jana.

00:11:27--> 00:12:15

What is our thought about hormonal Jackie Luna and who salah the true worshipers of the Most Merciful when people address them in an arrogant, ignorant manner in a harsh way they just say Salaam and peace. Don't argue with a fool. Don't create debate with someone who is harsh and abusive in their ways and in what they say and so on. I want to tell you something more powerful today for you and I to take heed although what Allah has said obviously it stands It is the highest. Allah says when the ignorant address the worshipers of mine, they should just say Salaam and move on. Are you an ignorant person who addresses others in harshness or with harshness? If that's the case you

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

have something even bigger to correct.

00:12:19--> 00:13:01

It's easy for me to say when someone abuses you walk away or just say Salaam and keep going keep it moving. The damage you will cause is more the damage you will cause is more by responding sometimes. But what is more important for you to know is are you one of those cursed ones who abuses people? Are you the one who hurts and harms others? If that's the case, oh you need to work on it today. You need to work on it today. I don't want to use my tongue to abuse anyone don't talk about this one and that one especially you don't know who is close to Allah. People talk about scholars today who spend their lives calling towards Allah. You don't even know them personally sometimes. And they

00:13:01--> 00:13:34

want to say things they want to type things they want to put things on the internet and Wallahi they don't realize that abuse makes you a person who has distanced from Allah What if that person is the slave of Allah or you know people, if they cry tears against the abuse that someone has served and Allah will not allow those tears to come down for no reason, you will pay a price. Be careful when someone is bleeding from their heart, whether it is a spouse, or a child or a parent or a friend or whoever it may be.

00:13:35--> 00:14:06

If someone is bleeding in their heart because of something you did, Allah watches that and Allah makes it happen and come sometimes when we are bleeding we say Oh Allah, don't punish this person because of how they have made me feel. Why do we have to say that? Because if Allah's punishment comes, sometimes they might wipe out someone who is close to you because of how they made you feel. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us not from among the abusers while we are talking about how to deal with those who abused us revenue.

00:14:07--> 00:14:15

So Allah Almighty says what Alladhina Joby tune and beam Sujatha Oh,

00:14:16--> 00:15:00

those who spend their nights those who spend their nights between prostration and standing in prayer. I spend my night or part of my night in goodness, I want to tell you that is a high quality What about us, we are not even regular with five daily Salah let alone the night prayer. Am I right or wrong? You want the Mercy of Allah I am talking to you inviting you my brothers, my sisters, join for Salah do to hurt you at least sometimes come forth, at least at some point. It is one of the best prayers after the forum that you could engage in. And by the way, it is invitation only. Allah invites you to come

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

When fulfill tahajjud It can't just happen like that. I want to I want to come.

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

Allah invites you, your regular with your prayers, Allah Almighty facilitates it for you. He makes it easy for you He allows your eyes to open,

00:15:16--> 00:15:50

be it with or without the alarm by the way, he allows your eyes to open and what does he do? He gives you the feeling within and the energy within to say let me get up. Let me do my wudu Let me fulfill some prayer. Let me cry to Allah. This is the most blessing time Subhanallah that is from Allah. That is from Allah may Allah strengthen us at least some time. Try it my brothers and sisters. You won't regret it will change your life. Try it. Get up. Allah will strengthen you. My brothers and sisters

in Baja Gan of all my

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

utmost Mustafa,

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

among

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

those who are praying to Allah to protect them from the torment of hellfire, imagine you are doing tahajud you are walking steadfast on the earth you are humble you have good qualities still you are worried Oh Allah don't cast me in hellfire. Hellfire is a very torment awful place. It is a very bad and very, very difficult place to be in it is not a good about oh Allah protect me from this. That is the dua that is being made. Then when Allah blesses you, when you seek forgiveness of Allah and you do so far and you turn to Allah and you work hard in the dunya Allah will bless you with certain things in this world. We have all been blessed. No one from amongst us is not blessed. We are

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

blessed,

00:17:00--> 00:17:40

but to different levels. Allah blesses you. Today we are seated here. It's a blessing. I am standing in front of you. It's a blessing. Allah will ask us about this blessing. I bless you in so many ways. What did you do about it? That is Allah's system. When he gives you something he asks you about it. I want to tell you, my brothers and sisters, it is not wrong. To want to have nice things in this world. I want to have good clothing. I want to have a good car, I want to have a good house. I want to have good children. I want to have good spouse, you know and so on. And you know, be careful because some people here someone told me can you speak about polygamy? Can you speak about

00:17:40--> 00:17:40

what

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

about one?

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

Polygamy? Can you speak about what?

00:17:46--> 00:18:21

See the sisters are saying the word the brothers in front of the sisters, they are so shy. They don't even want to say the word because they know there was going to be trouble. If the video catches me say polygamy. I remember there was a guy in an interview. You can find it on Google. They were speaking in Arabic to him. He says So are you married? He says yes. How many? He says one he says would you like to marry again? He says yes. 23451234. So then he said okay, Mashallah. Brothers and sisters. Oh, the older viewers, as you see, he said, What are we live on? So it is no no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Did you see the clip? Yes, some of you have seen it. So the same thing

00:18:21--> 00:18:32

happened today here in Kaduna, Aston Villa. And Avi, but no problem. You know, they say, be careful of those who are silent. Those who talk Don't worry, they just talk. Allah subhanho wa taala, forgive us.

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

So the brother says, Will you talk about polygamy? I said, my brother.

00:18:38--> 00:19:05

May Allah Almighty strengthen us May Allah Almighty grant us ease and goodness, to be honest with you. We are the people of Allah. And Allah Almighty wants us to move in a certain direction. If you move in that direction, Wallah, he, you will be blessed by Allah in amazing ways. I was telling you that many people want good things, they want nice things, they, it's not wrong to have this and that.

00:19:06--> 00:19:23

It's good. When you become greedy, it gets bad, when you become greedy, and you do not spend in the Cause of Allah and you do not think of others then it becomes bad. So I told the brother who told me to talk about polygamy I said you know what, one is the spouse?

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

When there are many, the plural is what?

00:19:29--> 00:19:33

No, no, no. What is the plural of mouse?

00:19:34--> 00:19:41

So what is the plural of spouse? Spice? It becomes too spicy. You cannot handle it anymore.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

What happened to spice spice? What spice? I have more than one? Allahu Akbar. You know, that's what happens. You need to be careful. If you want to do something, do it properly or don't do it. If you want to do something, do it properly or don't do it. So when someone says what is the plural of Spa

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

As you know, it's not spice it spouse, spouse says, By the way, may Allah Almighty protect us. There are many more important topics to address than that particular one. However, my brothers and sisters, do you even fulfill salah? That's the question.

00:20:16--> 00:20:37

Do I was shocked to learn that there are good men who drink and commit adultery. I was shocked to learn here in this country, Good men whom some of them say you know the man he's a friend of yours. He knows you. But he drinks too much. He beats me. Drinking I can't imagine La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah Is it true?

00:20:38--> 00:21:26

Now the women are scared to say yes, love Akbar. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us from bad habits. Allah Almighty will not allow you to grow if you have such major habits that don't bother you. I couldn't believe it. They say no there is drinking adultery so much that is happening, gambling people and yet Allah has blessed you what baraka and blessings do you want in your life that will come as a punishment not as a blessing. May Allah protect our men and our women and our children and our parents and our brothers and sisters, we need to have a concern for all of them. By becoming steadfast ourselves. In Allah, Allah you will want you might be home in hot yoga you might

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

be

00:21:27--> 00:21:40

fusi him, you know the verse right? Allah will not change the condition of a nation until everyone changes themselves. So that is why Allah Almighty tells us you know, no matter how much you are doing,

00:21:41--> 00:22:22

when you have been blessed by Allah don't be wasteful and don't be miserly you must know how to spend you must know what to spend on because one of the first things you are going to be asked when you are leaving this earth is your money, your wealth Where did you get it from? Where did you spend it long, long questions, you will have to recall everything and come up with it. I got this I got that. I spent it here I spent it then how are you going to say I spent it on haram how? Oh Allah you blessed me with a million and I spent it on haram. It's better to turn today in a stable far to Allah, rather than face Allah and you don't have an answer. Because what does Allah say? Well,

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

levena either. Falco lamb use free food.

00:22:28--> 00:22:34

Can I buy enough early gumbo, those who are balanced when it comes to spending?

00:22:35--> 00:23:06

They are not wasteful. They are not miserly. They are balanced. That is a true believer. Are you true believers, I believe we we think we are we claim we are we are striving towards it. So in sha Allah, we can spend in a good way we can earn in a good way. Don't steal from others. Don't deceive them. Don't cheat them in business, don't earn through corruption don't earn through that which is a crime but earn from halal and when you earn from Halal Allah will give you the ability to spend on halal

00:23:08--> 00:23:46

and Allah Almighty will then grant you the beauty of living the world and while you are here content content, because why my income is halal, it might be less, I am so blessed. I'm so blessed. It might be less but I'm so blessed. It's not less actually we are eating drinking. We have a place we are renting mashallah, we are happy we have a small, you know, Toyota 2000, no problem. We are moving from one place to the other. I am thankful to Allah, you are a king. You know why you are a king? Because you have contentment. You are a king riding your bicycle going on public transport, what do they call those three wheelers? Here

00:23:47--> 00:24:05

Subhan Allah Subhana Allah He on a three wheeler, you see people sitting at the back they are so happy with themselves alive, they are saw content. Sometimes you see a Rolls Royce and the guy is looking like Sir, and he's driving. My brother go and see those sitting on the TV. They're just there.

00:24:08--> 00:24:52

How Allah blesses you, you are a king, my brother, you are a queen, my sister Allah has favored you because you are content we are happy with how Allah has kept us I am not prepared to compare myself with someone who has more than me in terms of material items of the world because it's going to snatch away my contentment. Be careful of the grand the Instagram and the social media and the talks that tick Be careful of them. Do you know why you may end up competing comparing your life with a non existent person because it's photoshopped? And you are not happy? Because wow. Oh, she's prettier. Oh, he's more handsome all the others. Oh, they look so you know, when couples come on

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

social media. You must remember they have to show you they have to what? Show? It's a show. That's what they do.

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

They will hold hands and smile you don't know the wall that goes on behind the closed doors if you knew that you would say a stove Rula rather I don't watch this because you're you're having small arguments with the mother of your children and you think you know so bad look at this couple here. Wallah. If you knew that couple they are looking at you in real life and saying I wish I was like this brother.

00:25:22--> 00:25:32

Because in their real life they are they are fighting it's just a business deal that they have together in order to be on social media. Let's just do this and do this. We will make money.

00:25:33--> 00:25:36

That's how it works. Nowadays I will do biller so thank Allah

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

What levena una Allah He Ilan

you lie flat.

00:26:02--> 00:26:41

Wire Newday V Mohana. Allah speaks about those who do not associate partners with Allah. This is by far the most important thing that is mentioned in all these qualities, even though it may not be the first one mentioned here because already Allah spoke about the bad man, it was expected of them already to worship Allah alone, that's when they are considered the bad or rough man. But here Allah is repeating it because of how serious the matter is. And he says, Those who do not associate partners with Allah in worship at all.

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

One of the unique things about Islam

00:26:46--> 00:27:10

and the most attractive teaching of Islam today, that is driving people towards Islam is your personal relationship directly with Allah. Yesterday, I was speaking to someone and talking about the different faiths and how the Christian say Jesus is our personal Savior. Do you have a personal Savior? Yes, I do. The Lord of Jesus is my personal savior.

00:27:12--> 00:27:54

He is my personal savior, the creator of myself and entire creation is my personal savior. I have a personal relationship with him, I talk to him, I know him, he knows me and we talk and he tells me his message. I have it in front of me but I constantly complain to him about my weakness and seek forgiveness directly from him. He is Allah. That's why Allah says, Love to shrimp dilla don't associate partners with Allah, you are a worship and we made you worship us alone, alone. Then come, if you worship us alone and come, we might ignore everything else and give you paradise. That's what Allah says. You know the verse isn't it?

00:27:56--> 00:28:32

So this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us Do not commit murder, same verse, true worshippers of Allah, they don't kill they don't commit murder, committing murder, you know, you and I know is not allowed, in fact to kill yourself is also impermissible. It is called Suicide. It's haram. You cannot take your own life away. Allah gave you the life and let Allah choose when he's going to take it away. You don't come in and say right, I need to die. Okay, guys, salaam alaikum. I'm going okay, there we are, and then you are gone. That doesn't work that way. Allah gave you the life Allah will take it away. You don't commit murder and you don't commit suicide as well. And on

00:28:32--> 00:29:10

top of that, Allah says, they do not commit adultery. Now that is a very important aspect because adultery comes in many stages. May Allah protect all of us from it. The worst of it is the final bit where there is adultery physical connection between the male and the female. Allah Almighty giving hope to those who have already fallen in that sin tells us that the the these sin and the punishment is multiplied, except for those who seek forgiveness of Allah.

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

Except for those who seek forgiveness of Allah. Now, there are two ways of seeking forgiveness. Number one,

00:29:18--> 00:29:46

you seek forgiveness of Allah, you have repented, you have regretted you have promised not to do it again and so on and so forth. But your entire life did not change only that one aspect changed. It stopped ALLAH forgive it and so on. So your sin was forgiven and you are moving on in life. Your life did not actually improve in other spheres. That's forgiveness, ALLAH forgive you.

Those are topics on their own in sha Allah, I pray that Allah protect us from all these evil things and he has mentioned here and ask Allah and continue to pray to Allah.

00:32:40--> 00:32:45

I want to mention one of the last qualities here. Allah says,

omiana. It's not the last one, but it's one of the last ones where Allah says, Those who constantly call out to Allah.

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

Know, those who

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

those whom,

00:33:13--> 00:33:18

when they are reminded of Allah, they don't turn a blind eye or a deaf ear.

00:33:20--> 00:33:23

When they are reminded of Allah, they take him

00:33:24--> 00:34:02

they consider the reminder, a gift today we are reminding each other it's not like I don't need what I'm saying I need it to. We are reminding each other and you probably know what I'm saying but we are reading it because Allah says that kill for in vigra 10 Fowl mumineen remind for the reminding definitely benefits the believers. That's why we are reminding each other so when you are reminded you take it as a bonus a gift of Allah, I thank Allah someone came to me to remind me I was just faltering now I can renew. You know, when I was little, I used to do toughies my father, mashallah he believed in, you know, he believed in

00:34:05--> 00:34:49

that's how we became half in and that's where we are. That's why we are where we are today. I don't think they I don't think that they always let me worry better. Right. I think there are probably better ways of disciplining children today, right? Because today if I just take my phone away from my little one Wallahi I will get whatever I want done. It's it's more if you say, Can I take your phone away? Or can I beat you? I'm only use a beat me. Am I right? Beat me buddy. So it shows you what is more painful. Right? So what happened when I was little? My father, if he traveled somewhere when he comes back? Usually I was playing while he was away. So I know. He tells me Do you know your

00:34:49--> 00:34:51

work or do we need to charge the battery?

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

Do you know your work or do we need to charge the battery and I just tell him I think we need to charge the battery

00:35:00--> 00:35:40

See because it means I was playing while you were away. Allah Almighty, a very higher example of a totally different nature But time and again he reminds us to recharge our batteries to say you faulted you needed another reminder you got a boost that's why every Friday go to the masjid early and listen to what the Imam is saying because it is another boost until the next Friday inshallah you get another boost and another boost and so on. These boosts are good, you must attend lectures, no matter who is the one speaking if they are legitimate and they are going to speak Quran, sunnah, and so on good things, listen to them Go you might hear a word that will change your entire life and

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

it will give you general principles.

00:35:44--> 00:35:52

So that's why at the end Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well let me know your poor Luna Rob BANA habla Lana, I mean as wodgina
