The minor date resurrection begins when you die, and how quickly can you die. You can die in an instant. You can die in an instant. So the Day of Judgment is a heartbeat away from you, unless further protect us. So now I'm on a quantum below that again, Canada Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While earlier he was in my wallet and my bad Welcome to our Arafa edition. So today is the eighth of the Elijah today is the eighth of the hedger, Hajj is five days, so five days of Hajj. The essence of hedge happens on auto fun, alpha is the second day of the hedge, it's the second day of the hedge. So the day before hedge beget before alpha is a day of

00:00:50 --> 00:01:20

preparation, and this is the eighth of the Elijah, that's actually the day that we're on right now. Then you have Autofit it's like all the Muslims go out to Ottawa, go out to the mountain of Ottawa. And then three days after our days of celebration, or days of celebration, that's the fetal alcohol, the aid of the sacrifice. So you've got preparation, and then you've got celebration, preparation for this day, then the main day, which is tomorrow, and then you've got three days after. And so

00:01:22 --> 00:02:09

normally, I give this reminder on Alpha day, in the midst while we're there on off, and people are making the on site, just kind of like a pump up because the time of Autofit is between the her and Margaret time, which is not a lot of time. And it is a lot of time, meaning that you're talking about say if there were by the time you finish there, let's say 130 and Milgram say is about seven o'clock. That's something like five hours or so giving time for food or if somebody needs to go to the bathroom, you talk about five hours of making dua. So in the middle of that I would give the following reminder. So let's start off with the reminder of the story of unis. Alison unicyclists

00:02:10 --> 00:02:31

when he left his people, and he ran away and he was in the water and he was swallowed, he fell off the boat or they threw him into the water and he was swallowed by the whale and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this in the Quran Allah subhanaw taala says well then when in doubt I move all the fallen

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

foul on

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

the Iran I Eve

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

Moreover, the Allah

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

Allah hola inna in

00:02:47 --> 00:02:50

this Oba Harnack in the

00:02:51 --> 00:02:58

domain of Vani and fester javelina Allah who wanna J Now Amina

00:02:59 --> 00:03:41

waka, Nika Nolan Jean meanie. And in this verse in the story of units on a sedan, so this whale had swallowed up units this this large, this large sea animal had swallowed up units on a sedan, and so he called out and Allah's pannacotta recorded his dua in the Quran. And Allah Allah and Allah Subhana Allah, that there is no God except you Oh Allah, glory be to you how far you are from the imperfections and other people associate you in the container volume. Invariably I was one of the transgressors. fester jab Allah and Allah Spano Tata answered him so Unison a Sudan

00:03:42 --> 00:04:34

was in the belly of the whale in the sea in the darkness of the night. So these three valo Matt Fernanda Photomath, and he called out in the darknesses, Allah Allah, Allah subhana there's no God except you, Oh Allah, glory to you. We remind ourselves that Allah subhanaw taala just like the unis on a centum Allah can hear the DA of universities that I'm in this situation, Allah subhanaw taala here's the dua for anyone who calls upon him. So whatever darkness or whatever situation, somebody finds themselves in Allah subhana donec and here that da and Allah subhanaw taala can respond to it. Now somebody may say, but I'm not a prophet. Or somebody may say, Well, I wasn't swallowed by a

00:04:34 --> 00:04:59

whale. The things usually that we're having trouble with are a lot simpler than being swallowed by well, and so Allah azza wa jal says, For anybody who has any doubt, the end of the verse what can then you can own GMO meaning and in the same way do we save and do we rescue the believers? ultimate meaning okay, then we can engineer more meaning and so this is the power of Allah's power data to add

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

Answer these doors. Another story that

00:05:03 --> 00:05:47

really hits home for me is the story of cab even Malik, by the alar. I know when he didn't join the army of the prophets of Allah. He said I'm in the Muslims, they cut them off and prophesized them, cut them off. And he found that this, this tightness came around his chest came around, everything was tightened around, the external world was tightened around him, the internal world was tightened around him. And then Allah Allah, a manager, I mean, Allah He La La and then he thought and felt that there's no returning to Allah subhanaw taala there's no savior, salvation from the situation except by turning back to Allah Azza returning to Allah and so Allah subhanaw taala set, forgave

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


00:05:49 --> 00:06:37

Allah Mel Janin Allah Latham metab Isley, him via Tubal, then Allah forgave them so that they would ask for forgiveness. And we've spoken about this as well that Allah subhanaw taala first forgave them, for them to be guided to ask for forgiveness so that they would ask for forgiveness and allowed forgive them. Meaning that when somebody makes dua, the exercise of making doc couldn't happen unless Allah guided you first. The exercise the ability to do it couldn't happen unless Allah subhanaw taala forgave you first through metabolically him via Tubal. So the fact that you're here on auto for a day or tomorrow being an alpha day, and you have this desire and you've attended and

00:06:37 --> 00:07:25

you're wishing to make dua than then know that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who guided you to this and wants you to make dua and wants to answer your door. That's why you're here. And that's why Allah spawns automated, easy, the cabra Delano when Allah subhanaw taala forgave him and the revelation was revealed to him and the prophesy Sam sent somebody to tell him the province when he came to the Prophet said Allah de Sena, the province that Alana is and I've said to him, EB she had behaved Yeoman Palatka alayka mandola political mode, he said, received glad tidings of the best day that ever had the best day that the sun ever rose up upon that since the day your mother gave birth

00:07:25 --> 00:07:38

to you, that this is the best day of your life since the day your mother gave birth to you. And that's the day that Allah subhanaw taala forgave him. That's the day that Allah subhanaw taala forgave him now

00:07:40 --> 00:07:41

when we are

00:07:43 --> 00:08:31

in this damn out of and everybody wants to do their best. You know, I when I'm in high touch and I see people everybody's worried did I make my best dog? Did I ask for the right things that I worship Allah subhanaw taala the best. And the thing is that we have to just come with our best intention, do your best and don't worry about the rest the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala is indeed expensive. You have to understand that this Day of Arafah that's tomorrow is Haiti Yom is the best day of the year. Now there's some comparisons I like to make this comparison between the last 10 nights of Ramadan because a lot of Muslims understand and appreciate how intense and and monumental the last

00:08:31 --> 00:09:11

two nights of Ramadan are. But these first 10 days of the hedger have like similar weight. The reason the last two nights of Ramadan are so powerful is because in it is Laila to the other in those last two nights of Ramadan, but in these first 10 days of first seven days of the hedger which we're in right now we have Hajj, which is the pillar of Islam Hajj, so you're comparing later to the other, which is an unbelievably virtuous night. But this is the pillar of Islam hygiene ism, these 10 days of the hijab what's actually interesting as well, is that

00:09:12 --> 00:09:59

in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, we don't know which night is later to cover, but in his first 10 days of the hedger, we do know which day is your modified so it's actually what we what we're interested in about like oh is it the 27th tonight as of the 23rd of the 25th that debate that happens on later to the other on which night is little other in the first 10 in these don't hedge today's you don't have to worry about that you actually know full on full force, what day it is that Allah subhanaw taala answers these doors and it's the day of Ottawa. And so the Prophet said a lot as Adam said, highroad da dee da yo me out of that the best driver that you can make is the Da da

00:10:00 --> 00:10:40

Of The Day of Arafah. And you're also when a person's going for Hajj they're walking in the footsteps of the prophets of Allah is of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in an everything he did. So the prophets of Allah Addison did his Hajj and he said to the people who are niemand Asika come take your hydrates from me. So they would literally just watch whatever the profits of Elias and um did, and they would emulate it and you see the hedge books, and that side of the hedge Hadith, they're just describing the hedge of the profits of a lot is just like the prophets of Allah S and M said, Pray as if you see, as you see me pray. Similarly, in hij, he's like, look at what I'm doing and

00:10:40 --> 00:11:30

follow me, copy me. And we're also following the footsteps of Ibrahim Ali Sinha and Ibrahim Ali Samuel see from the Safa Marwah, when Hajer and Ismail. We're going back and forth, and the Zen Zen and the building of the Kaaba and the place where we're praying the two rock guys after the toe off is Mikami. Ibrahim is the station of Ibrahim, and then going to out of where Ibrahim on Instagram, called the people in alpha, and so on. So you're in the footsteps of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and for sure that this is the most humiliated day the Champon is so shaytaan said to Allah Spano Tata, that the discretion of yours will not worship you. And here is that testimony and that test suffocation

00:11:30 --> 00:12:14

that, that human beings will worship Allah Spano, Donna, and they come for no other reason except to worship Allah azza wa jal. And so on the day of alpha, when you see those images of people gathered around the hill, now the Arafa is an open plane, it's an open plane, and the hill Avada that usually see on TV on the day of Autofit it's actually not that big. And that's not only out of that is a hill inside out. And that's where the profits of Eliassen I'm stood in his hedge, but hedge has 2 million people. It's not possible that 2 million people are gonna go to that small hill. So the people are there and they're making daus to Allah subhanaw taala and Allah azza wa jal comes down to

00:12:15 --> 00:12:40

Summit. Dunya, as the Hadith says, And he said, My either ha Allah in a statement of power ALLAH SubhanA, Allah says to the angels, what have these people come for? What have they come for? And indeed, everybody's coming on this day of alpha to seek ALLAH SubhanA data has mercy to ask of Allah subhanaw taala his bounty and to ask of Allah suppose I was protection from punishment.

00:12:42 --> 00:13:07

And so everybody comes together on this day of alpha to call to Allah Subhana Allah and it's not only in hajj, but all around the world, everywhere around the world, every corner of the globe, people are going to be in their homes. Allah subhanaw taala on this day of alpha, and then the day after day after tomorrow, they're going to be celebrating the day of Eid, in celebration of what the Muslims have done.

00:13:11 --> 00:13:53

So when you stand in front of Allah subhanaw Daraa Allah wants you live. So if Elijah della sang, ma the Howler what are these people intending? If that's what Allah subhanaw taala saying to the angels? Allah is majesty is is. Allah's majesty is by us, calling upon him and making dua to Allah azza wa jal. That's how he's showing his majesty. So you can imagine that you know, the statement that I say, who stands in front of a king and asks for any, you're asking al Karim, you're asking Allah subhanaw taala element gene. So if you're standing in front of Allah subhana data and he's saying, My God, how would I what do these people want? You want to be the person asking Allah

00:13:53 --> 00:14:14

Subhana Allah for forgiveness, asking for Paradise, asking for protection from hellfire. The Prophet said a lot instead, I'm said, and the best dog is the best dog is the dog of the day of alpha. And the best dog that I am those before me have said is La ilaha illallah wa hola shriek Allah will call out ham while our other cliche in cardio,

00:14:16 --> 00:14:25

which is it's a job but it's also a praising of Allah subhanaw taala it's a praising of Allah and we see on this day of Arafah, the day of out of

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

you know, something that I that I normally do in Ramadan, I tell you guys, you know, get your six dream guys and prepare for the last 10 nights of Ramadan. I actually don't follow that approach for Hajj, for hygiene. I asked everything. So I make like a master list of everything in my life, how I would want everything to go and that's the door that I make an offer multiple times. The Prophet said a lot and he said I'm said

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

that the judge the people who come for hajj are with the law.

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

They are

00:15:02 --> 00:15:22

the delegation of Allah subhanaw taala. And so just like you know, if there's a delegation of the king, you know, those people get treated VIP, all the Hajaj or the delegation of Allah subhanaw taala of Allah indeed, will, will repay them and reward them for what they've done. One time I was

00:15:24 --> 00:15:49

I was in this crush around the Jamaats I've been in a lot of those crushes, was in this crush around the gym a lot. And there was this Crown Victoria light, which is a really big car, driving through the crowd, and people are being pushed around the sides pushed around the side, you know, pressed up against a wall. And I saw as I'm being pressed against the wall, I saw on this Crown Victoria, it had a sticker.

00:15:51 --> 00:15:52

And it said VIP.

00:15:53 --> 00:16:26

It said VIP as I'm being crushed. Under, you know, in this crowd analyze around, it's not a big crush. But I said, I said to myself, we're all as hijacked. We are all VIP. We are all VIP. Everybody takes off their clothes and wears these white garments wears these white towels, white sheets, so that there is you know, there's no difference between this person or that person. The only thing that raises us or lowers us is our Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:33

There was

00:16:38 --> 00:17:26

the day of judgment, the Day of Judgment, where did when does it start? You know, it's a question that people that people ask, when does the Day of Judgment start and LKm to sohara and parameter Cobra, so what it means the minor Day of Resurrection, and the major Day of Resurrection, the minor Day of Resurrection starts when you die. And the major Day of Resurrection is when all the people are you know, raised up once again. So the minor date, resurrection begins when you die, and how quickly can you die, you can die in an instant, you can die in an instant. So the Day of Judgment is a heartbeat away from you, unless further protect us. The Day of Judgment is a heartbeat away from

00:17:26 --> 00:17:27

you, and

00:17:28 --> 00:18:16

swallow. I'm just remembering that, you know, there's a video of that that ship that was giving a lecture and I think it might have actually been in Mecca, maybe maybe not. But in the middle of his lecture, he just said La Ilaha illa Allah and died. So it could be one breath away, one heartbeat away and the Day of Judgment begins. So what happens on the Day of Judgment? Depends on what you do now. What happens on the Day of Resurrection depends on what you do. Now. How did you worship Allah subhanaw taala now, what was your effort that you put in right here right now, in this dunya I want to share with you a story of chef who is who's from Ottawa, my city in Canada, and the chef, you

00:18:16 --> 00:18:33

know, gave his life to the Dow and, and build one of the massage and one of the biggest masajid in our city and Subhanallah his daughter was I think in our early 20s and she died in an accident and less than a TATA Forgiver.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:40

And the shift you know, you know losing a child like that he has a lot of children, he was very distraught. So

00:18:41 --> 00:18:53

I'm in our hedge group, and our Hadoop which originates from from Ottawa, the leader of the hedge group, actually went to the share and invited him to come for Hutch

00:18:56 --> 00:19:11

invited him to come for Hajj and he would be our guest. And the chef accepted because obviously very emotional that he had just lost his daughter in Ramadan. Actually, yeah, he lost his daughter in Ramadan, two months later, that

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

that it was how much time and he was coming in our group and Subhanallah that I remember, we were,

00:19:20 --> 00:19:31

uh, he was in the group. I didn't see him actually because he felt ill. He came on one of the last flights, and he felt ill, and we were in Arafa.

00:19:32 --> 00:19:45

We were in Arafa when one of the hedge organizers said the shift is named Amadora shed. He said the share is really ill please everybody on this day of Arafah please make dua for the ship.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:56

And so we're making die today of out of and so on. And then towards the end of the day, which happens tomorrow towards the end of the day of Arafah.

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

We got the news.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:06

that the chef had passed away in the final hour of out of in Hutch.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:09


00:20:11 --> 00:20:18

he died in on auto for day making dogs will last panel data. And then

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

can you guess when his Janaza prayer was

00:20:24 --> 00:20:35

his gymnasts a prayer they hasten the Janaza prayer for him and he was washed caphyon and by morning time

00:20:37 --> 00:20:42

federal Fudger he's his Janessa was on a lead

00:20:43 --> 00:20:46

at the kava during hashtag

00:20:47 --> 00:21:30

Subhan Allah like if Allah like how do you plan something like that? You always your lot of people they're like, I want to die in Medina I want to die. Medina, how about your Janessa is a prayer is on the prayer, and you're buried in Mecca. And this is two months after his, his daughter passed away Subhanallah so we asked Eliza not just like we make dua you know, when when everybody's always talking about goals and I want to achieve this in the dunya and achieve that we really need to focus on the hereafter. We have to focus on both the dunya and the Acura that something like this what you see with happened to ship Hamilton rachet stuff like that this happened by accident. These things

00:21:30 --> 00:22:11

are doors that people make, and ALLAH SubhanA Dona answers their dogs. So now as we get ready for making this dua in on not offending God to Allah subhanaw taala I want to tell you a little bit about a fear and hope, fear and hope soon when you make dua to Allah Spano Tata. There is um, sometimes you have this huge open Allah subhanaw taala. Yeah, so you're thinking about Allah's mercy, Allah's forgiveness, you raised your hand so Allah azza wa jal that if a woman entered paradise, because she gave water to a dog, then then what about all the good things that you've done? And all the Ramadan's and wherever it says Leila so you got this huge hope and unless

00:22:11 --> 00:22:54

Panasonic make your daughter Allah, and then the other side is fear. And fear is when somebody worships Allah, because of all Allah don't Allah protect me from hellfire or Allah never allow me to my face to experience Hellfire Oh Allah keep me when everybody's falling on the Sirat and falling into hellfire. Oh Allah, keep my feet firm, and allow me to race and go across. So this is fear and hope, fear and hope you're making dua and you're calling upon Allah s Python on one side, which is afraid of the punishment of Allah Spano. Dada, on the other side, hope for the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:22:55 --> 00:23:08

So, unfortunately, in our communities, there's a lot of emphasis on fear. There's a lot of emphasis on fear, and I find there's not enough emphasis on the hope.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:52

So when I did Hajj, long time ago, my first hedge that I did, there was the brother from from one Muslim country, I went home into the country. And he was a student in Medina University. And he was really in like sourpuss sourpuss North Africa somewhere. He was a sourpuss and he always used to say like, ah, Allah is never going to forgive us. What's the point? This and that and he was so negative or the fear God was so intense with him. I started saying to myself, well, what's the point of worshipping Allah if we're all going to hellfire anyway, we're all gonna go to * fire might as well have a good time while we're here because you know what, everybody's going to * fire anyway,

00:23:53 --> 00:24:43

that was the attitude that he had. But towards the end of the Hajj, I lost him during Hajj and Hamdulillah I lost him. And towards the end of the Hajj, it was incredibly intense is my first Hajj and it was like a Battlezone. This was my first Hajj was like 1994 1994 Old School bridge, you know the years where every year like 200 People are dying at the gym a lot. 300 500 people were dying at the gym a lot and I've lived through you know, from the very first hash that I did that I was living through those kinds of situations. And you know, last my sandals, feet were burning, and I'm walking out of the gym a lot and I'm dying of thirst. I haven't drank and who knows how long I don't have

00:24:43 --> 00:24:49

water and I have Jews have been sleeping on the streets have dust in the shelf, and I see this person.

00:24:51 --> 00:25:00

He has stairs leading to his house. This is outside of the gym a lot area down the streets of Mecca and there was carpet on his

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

staircase like just a rough carpet. And I was like SubhanAllah. And never because it was such a rough idea that I went through. Like I carpet I was so excited. Oh my god carpet and I sat on the carpet I thought he would shoo me away. Like, like I was a stray cat needed to get lost don't sit here but he never did that. He let me sit sit on the carpet. And, and I slowly started moving up, you know, one stare to stare until I had my back on the wall. I'm like, Ah, I can rest my back on a wall. Um, so I was in a really bad shape. This is me like

00:25:38 --> 00:26:26

helicopters were going by God ambulance sounds you had a million people walking in the streets, right? You're like dude who like the the sounds of heights. And this man was standing there on his porch. And I'm standing there watching him for like, three hours, because I was completely exhausted. And I'm all by myself and I lost sourpuss guy, like earlier in the day, and I'm all by myself. And he would see people who were sick in the crowd, he was watching out in the crowd. And he would run out and invite them into his house, bring them into his house, give them water, give them some, give them some food or something like that, give them some shade, until they were able to go

00:26:26 --> 00:27:11

on their way. So he would do this. And people would walk up to him and asked him for water. And, and he and he would be like ABS shit Saudi guy we like I'm sure he'd go and get them this water. And they would drink. And I'm sure these people that are like me that haven't drank in like 48 hours. And they're making crazy dark for him. And I'm like, This guy is getting Jenner with every person he gives water to because I know how thirsty they are because I'm that thirsty right now. I'm gonna die here. But I'm gonna shoot if I don't ask people. You know, I don't know what it was. Maybe I've matured since then or whatever. I don't ask people for anything. So even though I'm dying of thirst,

00:27:11 --> 00:27:29

I didn't ask him for anything. And I didn't ask him for water. But it came to the point where I couldn't. I couldn't bear it. Anyone. Um, you know, people say I'm so thirsty, I'm gonna die of thirst. You when You haven't drank in like 48 hours during hij and all of these things that are happening in the heat.

00:27:30 --> 00:28:14

I finally asked him for some for some liquid for some water, even though I was like really embarrassed, but he gave it to me. And he brought me some juice. And he invited me into his house and let me use the washroom And subhanAllah I recovered my energy, the water the juice, and and I was refreshed and I limped back. I was limping, I was limped back to the kava, where I met my friend, not the sour post guy, but another guy. And I said, I have good news for you. And I said, this is the good news. I said, I have learned today that Allah is gonna forgive all of us.

00:28:15 --> 00:29:02

I'm like, and what that guy was telling us Mr. sourpuss telling us that, you know, what's the point? Why would Allah for you know this and that I go, he's wrong. And he's wrong, because I just saw a man who expressed so much mercy to all the projects. I just witnessed him express so much mercy to the Hajaj, because they're her judge. And he said, and then I said that if that's a human being, then what about the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that nobody came here to Mecca? And nobody went through all of this for any other reason than to establish the Oneness of Allah Spano. Donna. There are no swimming pools in Mecca. There actually there are some there is no shopping center there.

00:29:04 --> 00:29:22

There are shopping centers. Okay. Mecca has nothing except the Kaaba. Mecca has nothing except the Kaaba. Yes, there's some shops where you can buy some food and some hotels are kind of nice, but nobody goes to Mecca for those everybody's going to Mecca to worship Allah and worship Allah subhanaw taala alone.

00:29:24 --> 00:29:26

There was there was a man

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

so as we're coming to the end of this, this reminder here and is out of Charlottetown is coming tomorrow. Some people they're not that great in making doc. Okay, they're not that great. So it's like one person is like, Hey, this is what's what's that reciters name?

00:29:45 --> 00:29:59

There's some parties that they've got like some awesome some awesome title. We like winter prayer dogs, and you're listening to that type of dog and you're like, there's no way I can make dog like that. That that's like next level these guys

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

Eggs are like the best. And they're making dogs. Yeah.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:12

What if you're not so great in making your dogs there was a man this is like narrated in the books and the stories that came on out of a day.

00:30:14 --> 00:30:17

And he saw people making to offer all these amazing things.

00:30:19 --> 00:31:05

And you know, this person may have gone for amazing things that persons may not. And if you're on offer everywhere is people making the off. And then he said, he's like, Oh Allah, I can't I don't know how to say what they're saying. Oh Allah just give me everything that they're making dua for that all lodges give me everything that they're making doff look, and so even that person that allez pinata that'll answer they're not there was a woman, old lady on on autofocus on it's out of a day, we're in the tents one year, and I found some shade some place you know, there was kind of like in a corner somewhere and making dua to Allah Subhan Allah. And there's this lady, older lady, and she is

00:31:05 --> 00:31:09

not making dua, and she is eating ice cream if

00:31:10 --> 00:31:26

somebody came, and they're giving 100 They're giving out ice creams on alpha. And she's sitting there, you know, you can imagine how cute this is, right? An old anti snap making da and she's sitting there with the ice cream, you know, those little wooden spoons.

00:31:28 --> 00:32:05

And I'm like, you know, in my group, I'm very intense everybody you got to use every minute you got to make your dogs to Allah semana Donna. And then this lady who's not in my group, I'm like, Well, I want to get teach her a lesson. Like, look, it's off a day, don't spend your half a day eating ice creams. And by the way, I said that make every minute count. I'm actually against that kind of attitude of the make every minute count. Yes, you want to take advantage. But you don't want to stress yourself out to the point where it's not even about offer. You're just so there's so much anxiety and stress. It's like take it easy, bro. You know, make your dollars and make it from the

00:32:05 --> 00:32:24

heart. Don't make it about oh, I'm running out of time. I'm running out of time running out of time. You're not going to come out with a nice Doha if you have that kind of anxiety and stress. So just chill out if you need to eat an ice cream, go eat yourself and ice cream. If you need to sit and replenish, go to the bathroom. No worries in Charlottetown don't worry about

00:32:26 --> 00:32:35

so there's women eating ice cream. I remembered the Hadith Hadith pudsey, which the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that when people gather to mention Allah subhanaw taala

00:32:36 --> 00:32:46

the angels surround those people they they said hello MA We found you know this remembrance of Allah Subhan those are the angels gather around Sakina comes down upon those people.

00:32:47 --> 00:32:53

And then after the gathering is done, they go back to a Lost Planet Allah Allah subhanaw taala says, you know

00:32:54 --> 00:33:10

you know ask them about about the people What did they ask for? They're asking for your agenda. What are they seeking protection from? The angels say Oh, Mother seeking protection from hellfire. And then Allah subhana wa Tada says to the angels, let them go for I've forgiven them all. Let them go from forgiving them all.

00:33:14 --> 00:33:16

So then the angels say, oh, Allah Wait.

00:33:17 --> 00:33:57

There's somebody in that group that wasn't actually intending to be there that he was just passing by. And he was embarrassed so he just sat down but he's not actually from the groups if you're going to forgive everybody, don't forgive that guy. That guy doesn't deserve it. And Allah subhana data says to the says the angels will who cannot afford to Allah and even that person I have forgiven homeowner como la yesh cordially so that they are a people for whom the one who just simply sits in their presence will never fall into into ruin.

00:33:59 --> 00:34:27

So just being in the presence of people are making dua to Allah Spano data that that's Akina and that mercy can reach you and inshallah to Allah that you're not going to be the person who just spends off doing nothing, but even if you work, surround yourself with people who are worshipping Allah subhanaw Dona if your mother and father are alive and they're worshiping Allah, then go hang out with them make Gazzola spend $1 with them and really have a beautiful beautiful day in sha Allah Tada

00:34:32 --> 00:34:59

Allah subhanaw taala is happy that you care that you had said Leila Allah Allah is happy that you have you know embraced your deen is happy that you are learning you know the fact that you're sitting here so how about Allah The angels are gathering around us. Hodge has begun. This is the eighth of the hedger and the people right now in hudge. Right now it would be about 545 It's probably also time and the people are in the tents in men.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:26

I'm getting ready to go to Ottawa the next day, Allah subhanaw taala says, the federal IT Allah so race back to Allah Spano Dona. And so that's what we want to do want to turn back to Allah subhanaw taala and raise our hands in Doha a lot on HANA, let me give you just kind of like a final point here, let me give you a little technique that I use for preparing my daughters four out of a day.

00:35:28 --> 00:35:33

And like I said that it's a larger size. So if you want to take note of this, or somebody can just

00:35:36 --> 00:36:28

type up what I'm saying, I use a mind map, I use a mind map, there are five main categories of our lives that you'll normally hear me referring to, which is health, wealth, Dean, Dean, family, and fun health, wealth, deemed family fun, health, wealth, meaning family thought, so I'll make a mind map a mind map are those, you know, the circles, and there's lines connected to it. So health, wealth, Dean family funds, you got these five words, to be on a big piece of paper, it's nice if it's just one paper and stuff like that. And then you want to write what are three things, you know, three things that I want to make doc about in regards to my health. So you might say in regards to

00:36:28 --> 00:36:48

my health, three things I want to make doc for are, you know, maybe exercise, maybe my energy, and maybe my food, for example, just an example. If we're talking about Dean, what are three things that I want to make dot four categories? I'm talking about categories here.

00:36:49 --> 00:37:30

I might say that, indeed, with regards to my salah in regards to my good character, and in a third one relate to Deanwood. Maybe my contributions or my sadaqa? Yeah, so you give like three main categories, you can do more than three, but three is just to kind of like to kick it off. So when I do this, and I start building out this a mind map, I don't tender I don't like hey, do you want to do more than three? Do you want to do five? Do you want to order five? What are 10 different things you want? I don't hold back on that. Now that if I said health, and these are three things related to health, such as you know, eating nutritious and having energy and exercise, what are some things

00:37:30 --> 00:37:41

that I want to make doffed for in regards to exercise so I might say Oh Allah, I want to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for example. If that's something that I cared about, which is not

00:37:42 --> 00:38:19

when it comes to eating nutritious I might say oh Allah always make available for me, you know, nutritious food and make me love to eat those things. If I'm talking about energy, oh, Allah, allow me to have bundles of energy more energy that when that when I was a little kid, for example, and so you've got these areas, and then you start filling them in what's something you want to make off for when something and when you have it out, laid out completely like this, and you start breaking it down, you start building out a whole mind map of things that you want to make dua for then when it comes to out of the day, I take this mind map, I just lay it out in front of me, raise my hands to

00:38:19 --> 00:39:02

Allah Spano, dada, and start making dua for all those things and all the people that I want to make doc for and all this good stuff on the day of out of understanding as well, that the best on the day of Hanukkah is praising Allah, Laila of Allah and Allah should he get on cologne Hello, articulation Qadian. So I set a timer. I'll say like 20 minutes, and then I take like a five eight minute break afterwards 20 minutes, I might be reading Quran then I take a five minute break 20 minutes I'm you know, doing my mat mindmap type of draw, then I take a break. Another 20 minutes I couldn't just be doing let it Allah know that she could not do that like 100 times, and take a break, then I'm going

00:39:02 --> 00:39:24

back to making some dollars, then take a break, come back, and maybe I'm doing is still far 100 is still fine. And those 20 minutes and take a break. And the day goes by like that, and inshallah Tada, if you're fasting, it would be a good idea to fast on the day Avada as well. Will la Jota Allah, and we'll take some questions.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:41

That will first say, Michelle, there was a lot of activity going on the chat during the talk and handler lots of I think just pointing reflections, you know, resonating. So I think for questions we'll try not to do the technical ones. What do you think che?

00:39:42 --> 00:39:59

Sorry, do you want to take more technical questions, or? I mean, because I know there's a lot of spec, like people just asking when is alpha around the world, the date and time? And I know that varies for everyone else. I mean, as long as it's kind of related to what we're

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

doing here in Charlotte, generally speaking.

00:40:04 --> 00:40:38

Okay, so um, I'm gonna just try to filter through some of these as some of you guys have asked about the recording, so inshallah we're gonna email you, the replay, so don't worry about that you will get it inshallah and some of the questions that are coming in I'm skimming through shake has addressed them so for example not sitting through out of fear like in one sitting and making all your thoughts national shake address like his strategy for that and the specific hours of other for our check, did you speak to them just I don't think I missed that. Like, is there a specific hour that's more blessing and add a file or

00:40:40 --> 00:41:17

so in the day of a holiday, something like a specific hours more blessing than the other? There's the Day of Arafah? So a question that comes up is, is the Autofit day do you know worship Allah out of a date at the same time that the hajis are worshipping? Or do you do it from Lourdes a mother locally your time? So to be honest, what I like to do is try to correspond my time with the people who are making it and but of course, you don't have to do it you can do you know, if it's a day of Autofit, you can make

00:41:18 --> 00:41:21

dua at any time, like of your local time. It's okay.

00:41:24 --> 00:41:44

And so a lot of people asking women asking about you know, being on their menses during alpha, I'm just gonna save shape that question Allah has spoken a lot about in visionair, in terms of you know, you can still make dua there's a lot of great YouTube videos as well that you can refer to 100, there's still so much opportunity for you to make it rather and call upon Allah Subhanallah during this plus a day.

00:41:46 --> 00:42:24

One that I thought also Sheikh you could maybe speak to a few mothers asking, you know, I want to I know, being a mom is a bad that take care of my children this blessed day, but I'd like to increase. You know what, I guess it's maybe about mindset intention, I don't feel like to speak to that just for a lot of the moms on here to feel like I won't get to do as much as I should. So the thing about the menstrual cycle, obviously, the menstrual cycle has nothing to do with the day Avada just because we're talking about da and you don't need will do to make dua, the fasting on the Day of Arafah, you can pass obviously, if a woman's in her menstrual cycle, and that's, that's it? It's not

00:42:24 --> 00:42:25

it's not a big deal.

00:42:27 --> 00:42:36

What was the other question? Um, just to the mothers on here, who feel like during this bus a day, they don't get to maybe do what they want? Because they're taking care of their children.

00:42:37 --> 00:43:19

Yeah, so what I what I'd recommend is like, that's the importance of quality. So it's not about quantity. So people have children, they're like, Yeah, I want to worship Allah for eight hours straight, which is not possible anyway. But what you need to do is, like I said, about, like a mind map. If you imagine yourself six months from now and your ideal life is his happening and you wake up in your ideal life, what is it look like, and then start building out your Mind Map like that, here are five areas, three categories for each area, and you start filling out your Mind Map. And then so if you have children, obviously, you can, if you can encourage them to make Doha as well

00:43:19 --> 00:43:44

make it fun for them or something like that. If they're too young for that, maybe you put up some play area and get them busy while you make your dogs. But in shavathon, as long as you're prepared for the time that you do get in sha Allah Tala, you'll have a better chance of, you know, making an account. And like I said, even if you're the lady who's eating ice cream all day long on Alpha LS paradata, except as well, Allah knows your intention.

00:43:47 --> 00:44:02

And there's a few questions chef of people that are just going through difficulty in tests in this moment, and they're saying, you know, how can I in this lesson to make light and see light at the end of the tunnel? When it feels like I'm just my doors haven't been answered.

00:44:05 --> 00:44:07

I think they're just looking for a message of hope.

00:44:09 --> 00:44:09


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

So I'm

00:44:17 --> 00:44:22

sorry, there's just a question that's right in front of my head in front of my eyes, so I just need to answer it. Leila is asking.

00:44:23 --> 00:44:25

How long was the break again, the break was,

00:44:27 --> 00:44:39

I said, eight minutes. I said eight minutes because normally when I take breaks, I find five is too less. And eight is like 10 minutes is too long. Eight minutes seems to be a nice sweet spot for me. But you can make it whatever you want.

00:44:41 --> 00:44:46

So the question, it's been a long journey, and I've been making dua for a long time.

00:44:47 --> 00:44:53

Metta and Astra law, when all the when will the

00:44:54 --> 00:44:59

victory of Allah come to me? So I've said from you know, a different day

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

As the person makes so when I used to go for Hajj, one of the things that I told you guys, if you've taken visionair with me, I said, every year I used to go for Hajj with with the main draw the last Penetang have blessed us with with a child with a baby girl. And and I used to go and buy this like little cute, baby jilbab so that I'm like, Oh yeah, when the baby's born, I can dress her up in this baby's above, and it'll look really cute. And and I kept having this attitude every year, I'd go for hygienic job for this. And during the year, things wouldn't happen. And we'd give that back out as a gift. Next year, I would do the same thing. And I did this for like 10 years. So I've been down that

00:45:45 --> 00:46:28

road of making dua to Allah subhanaw taala for a long time, and understand that there are some dogs that you'll make you mean like you started thinking about the door, and Allah subhanaw taala answers those doors. They manifest like immediately, then there are other doors. And like I said, out of six doors out of six doors, two of them will get answered right away. Two of them get answered for some reason. This is like a weird observation that I have that when a new season of Doha comes along. It seems to be like some doors it's almost like they've been waiting, waiting. And then they start getting answered like one after the other right before the next Ramadan shows up for the next dot

00:46:28 --> 00:47:10

season shows up. So two doors are manifested, but it takes longer. And then and then like two draws that you'll make require serious action from you. They require require require you to build a boat, like we've been saying in Dreamwalker and the post or Milan challenge and so on. Maybe Allah needs you to build a boat. So you want to ask yourself this question. So it's not in the first category. It's the second category where you think you're waiting like I'm waiting for Prince Charming. Maybe Elon needs you to build a boat. You're like I'm waiting for Prince Charming. Maybe Elon needs you to build a boat, but I'm waiting for Prince Charming maybe Elon needs to build a boat and then one day

00:47:10 --> 00:47:53

you're like maybe I should build a boat and it's like duh and then things work out so I had some things that I've been making dock for for like five 610 20 years somebody making offers on some of that stuff. And then once I started building my boat started tying my camel started taking action intelligent action These doors were like snap snaps to one door answer second answer third dos. So the issue was wasn't that I'm just waiting for Allah to change my situation. It became an issue of Allah is not going to change my situation until I change that which is in my heart in Malala you know mommy Coleman had to buy your mommy was him. So you decide for yourself what category is your

00:47:53 --> 00:47:54


00:47:58 --> 00:48:15

does that take there was one final question that someone had just put in and then against one of those general I think people just looking for hope and it was like Che How can I increase my Eman to energize my two hours for auto fight I feel like the whole talk was about that. If there's anything last minute you'd like to add

00:48:17 --> 00:48:36

to I think it's a great question of finished shopping. I got a good suggestion for you guys. So on offer day when it is like the last 45 minutes of out of a day and kind of like I made all my doors and we're all good. And I need that last motivation to taking the next level.

00:48:38 --> 00:48:46

We thank you for our faith, our family's health and wealth. We declare you to be our Lord with no elapse other than you, You created us we are your slaves and fulfill our pledge to you. We seek refuge in You from the sins that we commit. Your blessings cannot be counted Your favors, we all admit. We also confess our sins and ask for your forgiveness. For none forgive sins except for you. Oh Allah, you are forgiving. You love to forgive so forgive me. Oh Allah, you are forgiving. You love to forgive so forgive me. Oh

Allah, you are forgiving. You love to forgive so forgive me. We seek refuge in You from a heart that is not humbled and an eye that does not tear knowledge that doesn't benefit a prayer not lifted near. Oh Allah makes the Quran the spring of our hearts, in the light of our chests, the remover of our sadness through a pillar of our stress. Teach us what we don't know and remind us of what we forgotten and grant us the ability to recite throughout the day and the night of Allah Our hearts are vessels that carry our faith. May you always have our hearts seeking your face. For every heart attached to something appointed to other than you will undoubtedly be disappointed. Oh Allah we ask

Have mercy on our family in Burma in the Central African Republic and remove them from oppression remove from them their sadness

00:54:39 --> 00:54:59

You are their only supporter and their only hope or avenues are shut for them except your door that doesn't close. So be their greatest supporter

There is nothing that allows us to have the ability to stand before you with all of our shortcomings and faults except what you've taught us of your forgiveness. There is nothing that allows our feet to carry us in Your presence with all of our sins and our mistakes, except that you've taught us of your mercy.

00:56:13 --> 00:56:55

Oh Allah if your mercy is only for the righteous than who was for the broken way down by their sins, standing before you seeking forgiveness, repentance, a new journey to begin. Forgive us and our parents and our children, and all of the believing men and women. Who is the one who asked you and was left wanting who was the one who depended on you.
