Salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu
Bismillah he will Hamdulillah he was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was a big mind the argument online today was whether or not assisters allowed to wear a coat on her. Iberia Have you heard that? We are addressing the matter of a sister starting off by wearing a coat to begin with because so many out there may not even be on that level. Where is the debate put on your abaya? At least my beloved sister we will talk about that later on at least you've got some clothing don't allow those who are chirping and talking online they're not supposed to be looking at you in the first place May Allah Almighty grant us is my sister's
what we need to realize a lot of debates happening online and a lot is being said in order to discourage you from taking the steps to become closer to Allah you know your level and everyone is on a different level. Make sure every day you do better than the previous day and inshallah you're heading in the right direction but don't let someone come and tell you that you need to do this and you need to do that Halal and Haram is from Allah
if you know
let's give you the bigger tech better than Amon
mashallah see, goes to show Mashallah.
My brothers, my sisters, I tell you what's going on. Each one is struggling with his or her faith. I have my own struggles you have your struggles. Do not allow those who are sitting and watching from afar to make you become despondent to the degree that you feel you're not even a good Muslim, yet you are becoming better as the days pass Wallahi you're doing good for as long as you know you are becoming better and you are inching closer to Allah move at a good pace. As you learn you practice this evening. There were a few people who said their shahada, and one of the pieces of advice given to them was Don't let people overwhelm you. I want to say this to practicing and non practicing
Muslims. Don't let someone else overwhelm you. Listen indeed, and take it seriously indeed. And then you know what you have to do and where you are, may Allah make it easy. However, I chose to start this way because
trust me, Birmingham was quite cold. If you notice I owe my buyer without a coat.
And I tell you, some people don't realize you need to put on a coat and you need to put it on Subhanallah where am I going to put it on? Wallahi you know what for as long as you know you're dressed decently and you're covered. And for as long as you know that you're not exposing anything by the will of Allah do it for the sake of Allah and not for the sake of Abdullah.
Right. And this is why this evening we seated all the Abdullah's down here and all the lessons at the top there Mashallah. They say that the sisters are perhaps 80% and the brothers are 20% SubhanAllah. And those 20 dictate the pace No, that's not going to happen. It's Allah who dictates the pace by the will of Allah. Do you know when you turn to Islam when you become practicing? Or when you've just said your shahada, you will face many challenges. It happened from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the earliest of those who accepted the message. They faced persecution in Makkah, so much in terms of persecution that they were shaken, and they called out to
Allah they were chosen by Allah to be the first of the people to accept Islam yet they struggled more than anyone else. They were threatened. Many of them were beaten. Look at Billa Lipner Abba Robbie Allahu and what an example look at the family of yah sera known as Alia, sir How much did they suffer? They were murdered some of them may Allah Almighty grant them the highest ranks of Jana was savvy Pune savvy in Pune.
He can move
Allah is promising them Paradise because they were the first to turn to Islam. They were the ones who came in right at the beginning. Allah is telling them you know what, they are the closest ones for them. They will be paradise they will receive and achieve more than they would ever have imagined. May Allah Almighty make a steadfast so if Abu Bakr Omar Osman Ali rot the Allahu Anhu Jami and may Allah be pleased with all of them, and the others
went through so
much in terms of hardship and difficulty, do you think we're not going to go through hardship and difficulty? You, you need to learn to be a proud Muslim, not pride that is that comes with arrogance, and haughtiness and belittlement of others and rejection of the truth. But rather the pride as in happiness. I'm happy to be a Muslim. I'm a happy Muslim, and I'm proud of my identity. Here is my beard. Here is my cloak. And that's why I started the way I did, because while arguing about what should go before the other, you might just lose the entire sister. She will say, You know what, bugger this whole argument neither neither an ABA nor a cloak, nor a coat, it's out. It can
happen. I agree. People put so much of pressure on others that they get so fed up, they say I made a mistake. However, look at Allah telling us you will face challenge you have to face challenge. Don't give up your identity, because a few people might have spat in your direction. A few people might have said a few hurtful words, a few people might have hurt you in one way or another. You can deal with that. You can deal with that you must deal with that in an appropriate way. But it should not deter you regarding your faith. If anything, it must make you stronger. If anything, it must make you stronger in your faith. If you decide to practice and your own family members are against you,
it should make you stronger because they were those chosen by Allah, chosen by Allah who went through that as well. Look at the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu what happened their families, look at the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. chosen by Allah, best of creation, most normal of all prophets of Allah of Milan, cultiva Chroma lucidly, and here you go. He faced persecution as well. If Allah wanted, it would have never happened. But Allah wanted the lesson to be for you and I
don't give up just because you're going to face someone tell you you're not allowed to pray here and here and there. And someone calls you and says you've just lost your job. It's okay. If it was for Allah. I am happy. Look at Saara, look at her. In fact, ha.
Allah has Salam, the wife of Ibrahim alayhi salam was with little Isma eel in a valley without any plantation, no vegetation, no food, no drink, no water, no sign of water, no sign of clouds. And when he began to walk away, she asked one question. Ah, love America. beha did Allah instruct you to do this? Did Allah instruct you to do this? And when Ibrahim Alayhi salaam nodded his head she said well then it's okay Allah will look after us. To this day, every one of us dies to go to Makkah, meaning we desperately want to go to Makkah moments ago we announced and Amara Subhan Allah we all want to go I want to go I'd love to have been there today. SubhanAllah 18th of Jumada and okra it's
actually the day I was born Subhanallah just clock 50 Alhamdulillah
May Allah Almighty grant us is no no no, don't come with happy birthdays.
By the way, it's Hijiri so 1395 to 1445 is 50 years on the button. May Allah Almighty grant us good Omar I mean, my brothers my sisters Damn I give my I gave my date of birth away right?
It's okay, it's okay. At least you can look at me as a grandpa because I actually am. But my brothers and sisters, I promise you if something has happened to you, you need to realize Allah gave value to Makkah after that incident, Allah Almighty increased it in so much more. wa jal of ADA time Meenan Sita Hui Elohim was your own home minute, Tamara de la Allahu Meir. skoon. Oh Allah. I've left my family here in this barren place. Oh Allah, let the hearts of the people inclined towards this place. Evidence yours and mine. And all of our hearts are inclined towards Mecca and Medina.
dua of Ibrahim alayhi salam saying, Oh Allah inclined the hearts of the people towards this place. But what was that dua after it was after a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala that he passed a great challenge for the sake of Allah, He endured and they endured, then the rest of the verses Allah says, or the DUA that was made by Ibrahim alayhi salam, he says, grant them produce grant them what produce what Zuko? Minatomirai so that they can be thankful today you go to Makkah to mukarram as barren as the land may be Subhanallah you find fruit and veg from all over the world. They're in Makkah, don't you Subhanallah millions of people have
At any given time and all of them are being fed, do you know the amount of food that is being used or that is being eaten on a daily basis or a few times a day? That is Makaton mocha Rama dua, Ibrahim alayhis salam, O Allah Grantham produce my brothers, my sisters, when you move through a time of challenge, distress, pain, you're you're in pain. Something's happened to you someone's wronged you oppressed you use the moment to make a blessing do and supplication to Allah. It is a moment of acceptance of dua ask Allah O Allah bless me my offspring bless everyone grant me Jana make things easy for me why something massive just happened. You tested me it was a big challenge.
I'm going through this Oh Allah, but I'm here calling out to you regarding other issues that I have. Sometimes we are tested by Allah and listen to this. It's probably one of the more powerful points that you will take home this evening.
Sometimes Allah designs a test for you, you have a major problem in the home with the inlaws with your outlaws, whoever it may be, you have a major issue with your health, you have a major issue with something sometimes because of your suburb and your patience regarding that particular thing and your dua for Allah to alleviate your suffering in that regard, as a direct result of that patience and dua. Allah has blessed you in other ways that you would never have imagined, unlike others. So you have a gift that those who are troubling you or harassing you, the naysayers do not have as a result of what they have said and done. Look at use of Alayhis Salam what happened. They
tried to block him to stop him to kill him to get rid of him however they could. As a direct result of that Allah elevated the status one after the other, he went up. So thank Allah, Oh Allah, if this is the test you've put in my life right now I thank you because I can manage this. I can cope. It's okay. So what if 20 People of the broader extended family no longer talk to me big deal. If Allah is happy with me, I am happy. Allah has blessed me with so much more than all of them put together. Is that not the case? So thank Allah, thank Allah, I will try to resolve the matter because it is part of my duty as a Muslim, to try to make the broader circle of my relatives within that which is
without conflict, should I say to try and bring them to peace with everyone in that circle, but I may not succeed, I'm going to try and if I don't succeed, I'm not going to lose sleep over that. I'm going to call out to Allah keep trying to the best of my capacity. That's God given. But I am definitely going to thank Allah. Oh, Allah, you tested me with this. You know what I'm managing? Don't test me with something else. That's a winner. Did you hear what I just said? Oh, Allah, you tested me with this. I have a problem. This is the issue. Oh Allah do not test me with something else. I thank You that You've given me a test I can manage. It's tough. It's a struggle, but with
your help, I can manage. You can't find the job for example, but Allah has given you the opportunity to open an online business that's bringing some money, thank Allah, Oh Allah, I am jobless. If I was not jobless, I would have never thought of opening this an online company and I wouldn't have started buying and selling Wallah he when you are pleased with the decree of Allah, the doors of sustenance shall fling open in a way that you did not imagine. It's just a matter of time. And it's a matter of patience. Subhanallah how many of us here today, lost jobs and today we're making more than the boss that we were working for Subhan Allah because Allah closed the door in order to open
other doors. That's the message of the Quran. Look at the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu they struggled initially, didn't they? Some of them lost their lives. Like we said, May Allah grant them Jana Wallahi. They lost their lives in order for the dean to get to us today. We're sitting here in this beautiful city of Birmingham. I never ever expected Birmingham to do so. Well, I was standing up there with members of my family, looking at the crowd and just saying, Oh Allah bless every single one who is here.
Grant those who are seeking ill cure in a miraculous way. I mean, have mercy on all of those who have family members or relatives or loved ones who have passed on Illa Allah Allah mean, similarly, so many watching online, may Allah bless you all. May Allah bless all of us, the connection we should be feeling as an ummah is real. If you don't feel it, you need to work on yourself. If when you see another believer, your heart is filled with hate and hate Wallahi we have to work on ourselves. But if you see a believing male or female and you feel a connection, a connection of protection, a connection that makes you realize that we're part of one family, thank Allah, your
heart is almost in sha Allah in the right place, by the way
Have Allah may Allah grant us love the Ummah is struggling partly because people are fragmenting us intentionally. They want us to be divided so that they can turn pull upon us. But if we're in sha Allah going to stand up for one another with our differences, we're going to stand up for one another by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala Wallah, he we will be among the successful May Allah Almighty grant victory to our brothers and sisters in Philistine May Allah Almighty grant them victory May Allah protect them may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every one of us and continue to use us to do whatever we can in order to reach out to them in the best possible way. I mean,
and the same applies to those in Sudan, those in Kashmir, those so many places across the globe. Yesterday, someone told me you always praying for Philistine when are you going to pray for Sudan? I said my brother, it's not intentional. It's just that we have my student AXA. So it's something that's not intentional to say we only care for one place we care for the entire globe. There are people struggling, whom we don't even know are struggling, there are places there is persecution that we are unaware of Allah is Aware, Allah Who months will be Latina resume in the acting Illa cool Robin Allah. Oh Allah help those who were removed from their homes for no reason. Besides that
they worship you Oh Allah, and they say our Lord is Allah. Look at the Sahaba the Allahu Anhu I was mentioning them how some of them lost their lives so that we can actually be here today. I want to tell you something about them. Allah praises them in the Quran. Allah subhanahu wa taala speaks about those in Makkah till mocha Rama they were persecuted until there came a point where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed some of the weaker ones to go to do Hijra to go and my great where did they migrate the first migration was to allow Basha Abyssinian somewhere in within the country known as Ethiopia today. So what happened there? Allah sent them instructed Nabi
SallAllahu Sallam to to send them to have a shot and told them there is a Christian ruler there who is just because of his justice, he will not oppress you, you will be able to live there and fulfill your deen. And because of that they went, they live there for years. According to generation 10 years Subhanallah not a single complaint against those people was registered, and not a single complaint against the host was registered either SubhanAllah 10 whole years, they were looked after the kuffaar of Quraysh came and they tried to Leo the leaders of al Habesha to send the Muslims back. But, but Alhamdulillah it did not happen. However, later on the people who remained in Makkah,
were persecuted again. And this is what I want to get get at all of us will face persecution at some point on a different level. I sit in wonder, imagine if I were a Palestinian sitting in Gaza, what would have been my condition? I wonder what would have been your condition we wonder Allah has not let us be there for a reason. Sometimes like I always say we are not Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu we are not the companions of Muhammad peace be upon him living in the first generation, perhaps because of the weakness of of our faith, perhaps because we might not have been so strong. When we were told you've got to do this. You've got to do that. This is halal haram. Today we talk about halal and
haram. A lot of the times people think that they have a say in it to Allah Who you don't have a see it's Allah say, didn't I say that moments ago? The say is for Allah. If you're weak, at least admit this is haram but I'm weak. This is halal. And inshallah Oh, this is an obligation and I'm going to Inshallah, get there by the will of Allah subhanahu wa taala. All of us, all of us, by the way, myself included are a work in progress. I am trying to improve certain things that only I know I have a weakness regarding big or small is none of your business. You understand what I mean? It's between me and Allah The same applies you have a weakness, none of my business, I can help and
encourage in a broad respectful way, but I cannot belittle you and abuse you to the degree that I don't know your connection with Allah and you know what, I might disconnect from Allah because of the way I treated someone who was struggling to get closer to Allah here are the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu. When they were persecuted Allah allowed them to migrate to Madina, Munawwara they went to Medina when they went to Medina a few years prior to the main event of the Hegira the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to meet the people of Medina and he met a few of them he sent with them Musa Bibiano, Mayor of the Allahu Anh, in order to teach them in order for them to prepare the
place for the arrival of the Muslims from Mecca. Who were they would they relatives, no, they were totally different people, different tribes, different parts of hijas completely Makkah and Medina Medina, there was the o's and the Hazara, the tribes here and
in Makkah, there was Quraysh different tribes, these people without knowing the others were prepared and proved it later on, to open their homes to accept another family of people whom they had zero connection with, besides La
Ilaha illa Allah.
That was the only connection they had. They said, because we have this connection, I'm going to open my home, you're going to be welcome here, I'm going to share my wealth with you. We don't want to use the term refugee, we're going to use the word more. Aha, you are my brother in Islam, Allahu Akbar. That's why when we see you say my brother, my sister, I say that a lot, because it is the most honorable connection between you and I, my brother, my sister, the most honorable, I'm connected to you. So that was termed My aha, they open their homes. Imagine you own your house, or you're paying the rent of your own home? Would you be prepared to open your house for your mother in
law? Sorry, sorry. Would you be prepared to open your house for any stranger?
You wouldn't even be prepared to open your house for a family member, the mother of the one whom you claim the love of my life, right?
The one who gave birth to the love of your life is a Public Enemy. Number one, since when you if you're a true Muslim, you know what I'm saying? Right? I almost uttered the word but I didn't.
Allah, He respects them, honor them. There will be misunderstandings. That's part of your challenge. Allah chose that for you as one of the issues you're going to face on Earth, you don't want it? Well, something else might come in your life that's going to be even bigger than that. Wallahi. I know of cases of people who have told me, and this is not a generalization. It's a particular case. And there are some cases because I really don't want to force you to live with those whom perhaps you really are living in an extremely toxic situation. I don't want to force that. But I want to just make you think for a moment, I've come across someone who told me, I really struggled living in
the broader extended family without naming exactly who they were living with. But they say as a result of that, when my children grew up, they had manners. They had the dean, they had so much more, they were protected. And there was so much that happened because we were all together. And I've seen my own sister, this person is saying the opposite. And you know, what, are they struggling with their kids and they're doing this? I said, You know what, it's one example thank Allah that Allah has protected you but I'm not saying that what your sister did was wrong. That was a test for her from Allah differently. But the point being raised is sometimes you didn't want one test. Allah
says no problem. You really making a dua for me for this.
Okay? You crying again and again and again, okay, because of your DUA, I'm going to grant what you want to buy. Now there's a slightly bigger thing coming in your direction Allahu Akbar, that does not mean don't make dua. All that means is just thank Allah O Allah while I asked you to alleviate my suffering. If you know that this is the best situation I'm ever going to be in then let me remain in it. Isn't that a fair dua? Isn't that a fair do I don't know if this is the best or not. There was a brother who came to me and told me I'd like to divorce my wife teach me how to do it. I said before I teach you how to do it, tell me why do you want to divorce him? And then he rattled out one
or two things I told him stop. Firstly, make a dua to Allah and say, Oh Allah, if this is the best woman that I'm ever going to have, then let me remain with her. Are you prepared to make the DUA he says no, I've had enough. I said when you get someone else it might even be worse because the brother unfortunately was on weed.
You see it comes out you start coming to the sheriff's because you have access to them. You know, my wife is this my wife is that the wife has to just breathe half a sentence and all your rattling is will be more to the ground.
This guy's on weed when he's on weed. Then they come up and say well Allah He thank Allah it's the only Halal thing I can smoke. What what did you just say? Did I hear Kurt Walla? He there are young people who believe that that's okay. They believe it's fine because there is an international debate about cannabis and CBD and whatever else Wallahi that debate in its place. The show shows smoking of weed is prohibited in Islam. Allahu Allah. Allah knows best. But don't come around and say I always tell the sisters if this guy is smoking cigarettes, don't marry him.
Sorry, I know you guys. At least you don't have eggs to throw on me.
If this guy smoking cigarettes, don't marry him because you know what? It's not good enough for Allah. Are you not going to give that up? And I'm telling you this. My bad habits your bad habits for Allah. Are we not going to give that up? Wallahi we shouldn't we must. So they say no, but he smokes normal cigarettes or he just does the normal shisha he doesn't do you mean she says Normal? You mean cigarettes are normal? It's not, don't normalize it. Subhanallah continue to say it's bad. It's so bad that people have to actually leave
By law right on every cigarette, it kills it kills it kills and that's why the guy says I'm dying to be with you because you know what? You're smoking too much.
Yes, may Allah grant us ease brothers I know you guys see today it's okay if you smoke I have to say the truth. bad habit. Is it not a bad habit?
You see, you see the yeses are coming from the sides not from here.
But the irony is more and more sisters are going into that habit. How's that? May Allah protect us? Is it not a bad habit?
You see, the minute you start speaking about the sisters, look at what the brothers did. Allah He you guys.
What's good for the goose is good for the gander and what's not is not Subhan Allah may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us protection. Well, Allah He my brothers, my sisters, the Sahaba the Allah who and whom fought for us, they, they embraced others, they opened their hearts, it must have been a struggle, but by the help of Allah, it was made easy. Imagine strange people coming to your home, you share half of what you want, or you have from the bottom of your heart. We are so clingy, we will not allow our brothers to drive the new BMW that we've bought.
You see, don't even drive the tweet, we tweet. We don't drive and you know, what's the excuse? You're not insured on it? I agree. You're not insured on it. Good. But move it down the drive. Come on. Now you're not allowed. It's illegal and you know, in your heart, don't want to just know he's gonna scratch the car. Scratch the car, the Sahaba the Allahu Anhu scratched their pockets and took out whatever they had and said, Listen, this is mine take half and we share it. Abdul Rahman Hypno, Alfred the Allahu Anhu went out into the marketplace. He says show me where's the market, there's the market. He came back in the evening with a prophet Allahu Akbar. He made money. little while
later Subhan Allah He made a lot of money. Sometime later he was known as one of the richest of the Sahaba the Allahu Anhu May Allah grant us all sustenance.
May we all see the first billion soon
you don't know whether I was talking about Zimbabwe dollars
or pounds or what it was but mind you that Amin was quite interesting. May Allah grant us billions of rewards my brothers and sisters, I tell you something very interesting. Allah praises the companions
in the Quran linfoot BA in MU hygiene and levena read you mean de
le him? Yeah buta guna
min Allah you are you wanna
Soon Allah How was una una Iike? Whom who saw the
phone? I start off with the end of that verse. Allah describes the MaHA Julian who were the first people to accept Islam in Makkah as a Saudi Khun the truthful ones, no matter what persecution came in their direction, they did not give up their faith, if anything, it made them strong, and they became those who are loved by Allah. Allah says those poor muhajir own those poor people who were driven out of their homes,
and their wealth was taken away from them.
calling out to Allah alone. Allah says for the sake of Allah, they left and they had to leave their wealth behind. They were driven out of their homes. Allah says, they were the ones seeking the virtue of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they're the truthful ones. Imagine you're driven out of your homes.
Imagine all your wealth taken.
If a day comes when you lose things, always think of those better than you in the eyes of Allah who lost more than you and it will help you. It will help you they lost a lot. Allah praise them in the Quran. Allah says for them is Jana. Then Allah says, As for those who lived in Medina already, and they had their homes in Medina already, and they open their homes for those who were coming in as Maha jurien. And they gave away things that they desperately needed, because the other one needed it. Allahu Akbar. Listen to the the other verse, Allah says, well levena terbang Whoa, amen. I mean, Kabini he knew he buena mon her Java EE Him, those who were living in Medina, and some of them have
had already accepted Islam prior to the hijab because of their interactions with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or with the Muslims. And Allah says they love those who made Hegira to them. Wow, that takes it to another level. They loved the people who came today the world
As a crisis, because we have refugees all over the world, they are treated like dirt Wallahi. I've worked with refugees, and many times you find they are put into tents for years on end. And some of these were really wealthy people before. If it happened to them, it could happen to me. I always think to myself, well, Allah, if I was in the position of this person, I don't know what I would have done.
Was and so much, in fact, natural disaster at times they say natural, but these are disasters that occur. So much happens and people are made to be refugees, but how are they treated? I know of people who were immigrants in the past coming to a land they did well, and they hate other immigrants. How's that? How is that Subhanallah but that's Allah closing your heart and sealing it. Subhanallah I always say it could have been the other way around. Imagine, immigrant. You came in as a refugee or an immigrant and now that's it. You hate everybody else and you keep them in a small tent, they freezing they're dying and you don't even care. In fact, you wouldn't even mind them
drowning on the oceans.
Islam says that you open your heart. Look at the example of the companions. There was not a single tent. Not one. Not one tent. Why each home took in another home. Each one took in another one and they loved them. When Allah says they loved them. There was no hypocrisy. You and I might say I love you. We say I love you to haram person. And we don't even mean it. That's what that's our condition. Am I right?
Don't pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about. Right? You know, I love you. And you know, I always tell the young girls especially that when the guy makes a double, triple L with a cheddar and big reader. He's definitely lying.
And he closes his eyes notice
why Where are you going? What are you trying to prove? Your relation with me should be such that without saying it I already know you love me. It's over. It's okay. Come and talk to my father.
Agree. Agree, but you're gonna sell I love what you're telling me for Go and tell you my father. I love your daughter. Are you gonna do that?
Am I right? Allah grant you is? The point is don't let people deceive you when Allah declared the DS love those who Allah He it means they love them. feasability Allah, I love you because you are going to bring me closer to Allah. I love you because you have brought me closer to Allah. It doesn't mean I need to marry you. I need to build a relationship with you. I need to be knowing you personally No, you don't. We love each other for the pleasure of Allah And Alhamdulillah in the era if Allah gives us an opportunity, we'll say salam
agree, I want to greet the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem and all these companions. I'm talking about those who took part in the Battle of budder Wouldn't you like to meet them? Allah here I want to meet them. Hamza Ignace, Abdullah matale Brodie Allahu and I can't wait to see him to meet him.
Our heroes, they gave their lives so that we can sit here today. We can't even give up five P five P. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So Allah praises them and says they love those who made hijra and they give the give that which they desperately need away, knowing that they need it. While you feel owner Allah fusi him What can I be him Kasasa they prefer the other's needs over their own needs, even if they are desperate.
And then Allah caps it by saying, why may you cut your hand off See he felt
he can who moves really hone those who protect those who are protected from their own stinginess or miserliness, the miserliness of their own knifes. They are the truly successful. Those who are not selfish are truly successful. When it's all about me, myself, and I can never be successful. When you've empowered others you empower not just your children and your family members, but you truly empower as many people as you can. Wallahi you've earned your paradise. But when you're worried about yourself alone, everything must be mine and mine. How much do you want? You've made the billion we spoke about moments ago the Amin's was set Alhamdulillah after the billion What do you
want let someone else make another billion Alhamdulillah it's okay help them, give them set them up and this is how you will succeed. My brothers and sisters, the deen of Allah is amazing.
What Allah has blessed us with his amazing Allah chose certain people. He praised them. He mentioned them in the Quran. He spoke about their qualities, their sacrifices, he spoke about what they did so that the deen can get to us
Now we need to learn from them in order to preserve the deen to practice upon it and to convey it to others as we leave this world because
