Take One i said I'm Alec Warhammer the labor catoe Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala Amma bad Good Morning Vietnam.
I'm going to share a story about Vietnam
this is, you know what, because I'm laughing and this is a serious story. And I don't know how to make the transition I
don't know how to make the transition between that so I just messed up my whole my whole speech right now. I have to think of something else.
I'm sorry guys. Does anybody
you know what I'm going to skip that story and maybe if the tone changes towards the end I'll tell you guys the story. So Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, I think I have a different story let me get a different story
don't have a different
glass panel data says in the Quran bargain or the bill I'm gonna show up on a regime.
Floor by me mostly, but feel all the one
or laughy fusi come in Luffy kita
cobbly and Navarro.
Lika long, long here see? Less paradata says Matt or sabam and we'll see button fill all the while Fe and fuzzy come in laffy, Tabin and cuddly and Abraha. Allah subhanaw taala says that whatever disaster calamity befalls upon the earth, or amongst yourself, fill out the philosophy and physical illness he keytab him in public and Abraha that indeed, it's written and it laffy keytab it's in a keytab it's in a register and cobbly and Abraha. before Allah subhanaw taala brings it into being in other words that whatever happened Coronavirus, or anything else, it's written in a keytab with Allah subhanaw taala mean cobbly and Abraha before it comes into being Masabi mostly but infill all
the will Fe and for cecum alethic, Italian cobbler and Abraha. In another verse, Allah subhanaw taala says, I will be learning the Chautala regime while unable to
be shy in the whole thing wanted to do on a will now also mean
in this verse, Allah subhanaw taala is telling us that a promising us that he's going to test us in our
with some fear with some hunger and a loss of wealth and a loss of life, it's going to be a test and it's already promised by Allah subhanaw taala it's not something shocking Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran will enable you to
be shamed in a hole if you want to know more, when Apple see me no one you want an foresee with them alright you have been shamed for being Allah subhanaw taala says and we will surely test you with something of fear, like a che in a portion of fear and hunger and loss of wealth and loss of lives and fruits. Well, I bet she decided in and give glad tidings for the patient ones. Remember one of our other Facebook Lives I spoke about how that we're often giving doom and gloom type of lectures. But in fact, if you look in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala is constantly in reminding us to give glad tidings to the believers. In other words, when these tests come, it's a time of giving glad
tidings for the believers giving glad tidings for people who are patient all that * is sobbing.
And the province of alarming said I'm said in this hadith Masaba
Masaba aka lemmya Couldn't you check on my buck lamea Quran you'll see back, the Prophet said a lot as Adam said, whatever strikes you was never going to miss. And whatever misses you was never going to strike you. In other words, when something happens when something happens again, let's say Coronavirus, there was no way that that could have been avoided. There was no way it was written before. As we saw in the first verse, we know that Allah subhanaw taala is going to test this
shaman and hopefully with joueur we're not similar. I'm wild when I'm first with Amara and we also know that Whatever befalls us would never miss and whatever misses us was never going to strike us. Now the the story that I wanted to share is the story of shahada better, yeah. So candleberry Yeah, here is from Vietnam. And in his father, I'm a lot there in Seattle. And his father was coming out from the masjid in the dark, and he was killed.
The Shandra Barry rahamallah Has father killed
and they're from Vietnam.
And he was telling the story, you know, I gave my condolences online. This is many years ago, you're talking about like, maybe 15 years ago, and he was giving telling I heard I gave my condolences as Father It sounds very scary. And um, but then later, he was actually explaining it, he was explaining it to a lecture that he was giving and I loved his his response. You know, what happened was he underbelly Shut up, nobody was there. And he heard the gunshot. And he went to his father who had fallen, and his father was still alive. And so should have the body immediately went to him and said, c'est la ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, and his father said, Lila illallah, Muhammad
Rasool Allah, and then Sheikh Abdul Abadi said to his father, he said, The ambulance is going to come please, you're going to come they're going to ask you questions. Don't talk to them. Let the last thing that you say be La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah and his father nodded.
And take it to the husband his father was killed Rahim Allah Tala Shaheed in sha Allah
when Shahab rebellion was explaining this, his own reflection and his own way of processing, this was you know, Chicago Abadi was at peace. And then and then he was explaining why he was at peace. And he explained a couple of things about what I talked about here. Number one is, he said, Whatever struck, my father was never going to miss him. And whatever missed him was never going to strike him. And shut up. Nobody was saying that this was written. This was written before our last panel, how to create the heavens of the earth, everything is in a key tab, everything is a register before it is executed out. And so everything is written. So this was never not going to happen. When he
said when he thought about the punishment, about you know, catching the eye, catching the murderer,
catching the murderer and bringing him to justice should have the battery was like, You know what? Justice? If you think of the jail system, it's only a few years. He said, If this person doesn't repent to Allah subhanaw taala then what kind of punishment is awaiting this person in the hereafter. Right. And so
after hearing all of the
And sorry, after feeling all of these things shift from the very was at peace. And so when the police officers came, and they started asking shall have their value about what happened, father and stuff like that he was so at peace, that the police officers thought that he did it. They go, we have never met somebody that is so at peace that you know, father got shot, and you're at peace, and then shahada, he started explaining all of these things, and was giving them Dawa and understanding the position with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And so I'd say this to you guys today in our mass daily community huddle, I'm sharing this with you.
So that we understand that whatever's happening to us was never going to miss us. And everything that always is happening is was written with Allah subhanaw taala before it, it happened it was there in the keytab nothing was going to stop it and it was never going to miss it. And Allah subhanaw Donna and we already know that Allah is going to test us but if we were a patient, well that should a slob it in and replace our trust and unless paradata placing our trust in Allah when something's out of our hands, then this is from you know, glad tidings for the believers. So in conclusion, inshallah Tada. I would like to do this little activity with you, Allah subhanaw taala
says in the Quran, why is
Rahu Shang hua hai Ural ACOEM Why is
your hip boy che Hua Shan roll? Lacan wala Ahuja Allah
Allah subhanaw taala says and it may be that you dislike something and it's better for you. And it may be that you like something and it's not good for you. And it's evil for evil Allahu Allah and Tamila dynamo and ALLAH knows and you do not know so as a little activity here you can type in the comments what is something that you normal, something that you did not prefer? You do not prefer but it may be good for you type that in right now what's something think about it? What's something that normally you do not prefer it but it may be better for you
What's something that you do not prefer? But
it might be good for you
I'll give you a moment to type that in something that you do not prefer then it may be better for you
so gene says being sick, maybe somebody is being sick and Allah subhanaw taala protects them from something else Sure. Something that you did not prefer but it may be better for you.
And Brian says my current job location doing my PhD How is it better for you? How is it possibly better for you? So not just the thing, but how is it possibly better for you?
You know, there was a brother, I'll share with you
just a point there was a brother and I attended his he was in a jail. The one of these you know, Muslim brothers going to jail conspiracy thing against them and stuff like that. And this brother was
it was the final and he got like some some crazy, some crazy sentence like 30 years in jail or some crazy thing like that, just because that was the height of you know, fear against Muslims. And he was saying that.
You know what? He goes, I wasn't even a good Muslim. He's like, I almost was like leaving my deen and then this happened to me and brought me to jail. And then I realized that there is no good that can come except from turning back to Allah subhanaw taala. So in this brother's case, he may have left Islam and died a non Muslim, but because of this fitna that Allah subhanaw Dona he turned back to Allah azza wa jal and became better and Takara who che and more of the perhaps you dislike something, but it's better for you. Okay, so let's do the opposite. What is it that you may prefer? You prefer it but it might not be good for you. So I know a lot of you guys are saying just the
thing but what do you prefer? Are you like but it might not be
so good for you.
And how so?
Something that you like
something that you like
So there was a brother, for example, another thought that comes to my mind something that he preferred. This brother came to, came to Canada and he prefer to hey, I want Caden citizenship, I want to move to Canada and so on. And he told me this later and then one of the first things he did was he attended a maga class I was teaching the class and he got inspired. He went and he applied to work in Medina, Medina, Mr. Nebo, we, and then
and then he got accepted, and he moved with his family to Medina, and his whole life changed. And he met me in Medina with his children. And he said, I preferred to live in Canada when I first came, but Allah subhanaw taala chose something else for me. And Allah subhanaw taala brought him and his family and everybody raised, you know, good Muslims and, and everything's good like that. Allah Jota on. Alright guys, that's it. That's a reminder for today, just like Aloha, and we had a really good turnout for today. So
I have a question. I have a question. That sometimes when I hear this is like, we're done this speech. But now I'm going to tell you my train of thought.
I had this question in my mind of, you know, when people they're making dua to Allah subhana data, and things aren't going so well. And then you'll see somebody say in the comments, or they themselves will say something like that. I'm just going to trust Allah's plan. I'm just going to trust Allah's plan. I'm going to have faith. I'm just going to trust unless plan. But see, I have a problem with that comment, because I'm like, How do you know Allah's plan that you're going to trust in it? Like maybe the plan is that you slap yourself? You go in and take action and get this get this done? Instead of saying, I'm waiting for something to happen. Right. So I have a problem with
I'm going to trust in Allah's plan because I'm like, what does that mean? I'm going to trust normalized plan. So got me looking into Tilak good. What does placing your trust in Allah mean? So I actually found out some really beautiful distinctions and clarifications of what it means to place your trust in Allah Sanatana. I got some really great examples from the Sierra. Teaching what it means to place the trust in Allah Spano Tata, and this content is so epic, that I told my team that we need to do a special webinar for this one, that not just the daily huddle, but we need something bigger inshallah Tada, so teams putting something together and inshallah Tada in a few days. I'm
gonna well you're gonna hear the announcement for that where the webinar is going to be in stuff stuff, and I'll share with you that content what does it mean to place your trust in Allah subhanaw taala and how can you say you trust Allah's plan when you don't even know Allah's plan?
So that's coming up too and visionair Ramadan 2020 is coming up soon. Make sure you're part of that as well. So check it out. visionair Ramadan in visionary Ramadan we talk a lot about you know, tie your camel and place your trust in Allah subhanaw taala and inshallah to Allah
that's all going to be the trusting Allah the dot and placing your trust in Allah insha Allah Tada visionary 2020 We will make this an epic at home Ramadan insha Allah Tala a Ramadan that you will never forget.
Alright guys, I'm done. I'm finished. Does anybody have a question?
Some people tuned in later. I think this is like our biggest turnout Masha Allah.
Saima Han says how is it different than visionary? 2030 I think you mean Simon Han? How is visionary? 2020 visionary Ramadan, let's just say a vision of Ramadan. How is it different than visionair 2030 vision 2030 The outcome of visionary 2030 was to design a roadmap, a blueprint in five areas of our life dream blueprints for the next 10 years. And so visionary Ramadan the focus is on draw and designing six dream draws six dream to eyes for Ramadan and for the last 10 nights of Ramadan specifically so the focus is hardcore on how to design doors that speak to your heart. So when people make daus, they usually the really, really good ones, the exciting ones that
that motivate people usually comes from pain usually comes from pain.
One moment, they usually come from pain. And my question was that I asked lat long time ago that I was wondering was how can we make a dua that is not based from pain but better
is in thankfulness but has the same power and you know, same passion from our side as a DA that comes from pain and that brought me to, you know this, this visionary process and doing a retreat before Ramadan and then eventually doing this visionary Ramadan I did it for many years by myself, and then I started doing it with other people. And so for the last seven years consistently we've been doing Visionaire Ramadan people have done visionary Ramadan know what the difference is between it and visionary 2030 But if it's your first time if it was your first time taking visionary 2030 Then you might not know what that is Hamid Ahmed. You can find out information about visionair on
let's call it visionary Ramadan
you can find it at visionair Ramadan calm
let me type it in febrile
There you go.
Anybody else have a question?
Okay, so we got a lot of questions today. Interesting. Here we go. Let the questions are coming fast. And by the time I tried answering one I started reading the next one so that's not good. Let's take a one by one and says how does someone who is self isolating at home alone do an effective total Ouija? By effective What do you mean? Do you mean like somebody who's reading and understanding what they're saying and and so I used to pray at home alone even before you know this this year happened. And I'd be in isolation and I enjoy praying alone. And then sometimes you know certainly Imams and I like to recited when I go to the masjid and stuff like that. If you're talking
about I would tell you and ask yourself What does effective mean to you? And then start saying well how can I do that at home? What does it mean to you that might be laying in knowing what you're saying in the in the Salah, and stuff like that.
And making time and being consistent building up a habit
Shahana says how does that fit in with what is written if it's written for you and won't miss your warm views longer than it should be that way irrespective of boss shahada So the Prophet said a lot I said, um, said that nothing changed the written registry. And nothing can change the written registry except the door. So as you're saying, how does that fit in, it actually can change what's written in fact, even later the other and that whole the doors of later recording last night to Ramadan. One of the explanations of it is this is the day that the cutter is coming down. So prophesized that you want to be making doc to Allah subhanaw taala. On that day, the cutter the
Christmas is being written so that you're asking Allah subhanaw taala for the best, and you're Doha can change the direction of that placement Kismat.
Come on admin says, and if you guys asked a question earlier, and it's like up at the top, just copy paste in and bring it down and repost it.
We will be done in 10 minutes. hamdullah. We have a great, great community right now. So a lot of people out here on this Facebook Live, so I'll keep answering questions. And Charlotte.
Come on this question can do I be made specifically for being blessed with something or someone? So come on, what I advise people when they're designing their doors is to be specific. Is to be specific. So can you make a dot that specific? The answer is yes. I think you're talking about someone like Oh, getting married to someone. And can you mention them specifically, it goes into a little detail. It may be that Allah subhanaw taala gives you something different and you have to understand that dua you can make dua for something specific, but understand that if Allah subhanaw taala gives you something else that it could be better for you. And you have to appreciate that
So many as Acadia says, Can using credit cards also be a reason for dollars not getting accepted as interest is involved. So credit cards. No, it's not so simple, right? It's not so simple. As you know, interest is involved credit cards, debit cards, stuff like that. And it's a long financial discussion about this. So I wouldn't just jump to the conclusion that interest is of all if you're talking about like, Hey, I, you know, paid 5000 on a credit card and I only pay back 1000 pay the rest in interest stuff like that and you you're paying a person's paying interest
Let's put that aside for a second. But, uh, let me generalize the question Can Can somebody, can their dies be accepted even if they commit haram? And the answer is yes, it can. Because there's nobody that does not harm. There's nobody that does not commit haram. And so committing haram isn't,
isn't a condition like oh, you have to be flawless in order to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala. So if somebody has credit card dot, and so maybe I don't know, if you're asking about yourself, or you're asking about somebody else, I seems like you're asking about somebody else, generally saying, if you were asking about yourself, then you want to say something like, make your dua to Allah subhanaw taala and ask Allah for forgiveness. At the same time, actually, regardless of credit card, we're always asking us out for forgiveness, because that's what we do we sin and repent to Allah.
Yesterday says session was about that, or I think the day before.
porosus question says, Can you please give some tips on memorizing Quran efficiently. So here's one tip that I have.
Here's one tip that I have, I have a clock when I when I was younger, and I had a clock and the clock would, it's a hand clock, not a digital clock, digital clock at work. But hand clock is better. You have a hand clock, and then you say to yourself, hey, in the next 15 minutes, you have micro goals. So you might say, in the next 15 minutes, I'm going to memorize, you know these two verses, and then you start focusing, I'm going to memorize you. So micro goals, and and then
and then you move on to the next next 15 minutes, I'm going to memorize these three verses in the next 15 minutes, I'm going to do this and the next 15 minutes, I'm going to, you know read the whole page at least two times without looking and then the next 15 minutes. So you have these micro goals. That's one thing that I would do when I was memorizing Quran, you want to another tip for memorizing Quran efficiently, obviously, is to be in a program and a paid program in which you you have accountability to somebody. And yep, yeah.
So those are two ideas.
How humans question Halima says, How do you choose between a duty to a community and duty to your family, for example, a nurse with ailments of wedding working in hospital at this time, so that they do not expose them to themselves or their family?
What takes preference duty to community or one's family?
That's a hard question. You know, because
when there's when there's like something like this going on, and you're talking about a nurse, and then it could be like phunki fe, there needs to be people.
Basically, because it's not so simple, because you're talking about frontline defense, it may be that this person has no choice if the Emir of the community or the country commands people to step forward, you know, and so it's kind of like if there's a if there's a war, and these are frontline soldiers, and they may not have a choice that to decide like, Hey, should I you know, should I stay home and take care of my family? Or should I go to the frontline and these nurses are kind of like in the same situation, I'm talking off the top of my head. And these are factual answers that I should not be speaking about. But I just want to tell you that it's not so simple and it needs
effect wah wah like fatwah from a federal committee will lie and I don't think it's just personal opinion that can decide something like this
super his question will be done at half an hour or so there's five more minutes left. Doesn't matter how many questions are there, but it is what it is. So his question says, Are there specific acts that can increase our ability for our days? I guess DAWs to get answered cycad Toba.
Yeah, so Cebu he the things that will increase our doors I could put like rocket boosters on our doors are thankfulness. Allah subhanaw taala says lay in Chicago Joomla has either MCM if you're thankful, Allah subhanaw taala will find sorry if you're thankful that Allah will increase you. Another thing that you can do is
zakat, for sure, yeah, Toba. So the prophets of Allah anisum said charity extinguishes Allah's Anger like fire extinguishers, water extinguishes fire and so a person gives sadaqa so that their doors are answered as well. Toba? Of course, TBWA fearing Allah subhanaw taala having that Taqwa of Allah as you're racing back to Allah repenting
To Allah also increases the opportunity for the DA to get answered I would also add to it and tying your camel
tie your camel in place your trust in Allah
Can I follow a citation or have some kind of online live stream to help me pretend we had like I would have in the mosque behind any map? So again inside msgid You don't live stream in a masjid.
You're basically praying physically behind it a map. Can you do that? And the answer is no, you cannot in order for a prayer congregational prayer to be valid, the lines from the Imam have to continue to the ladies section. If you are not in continuous lines, you can't just randomly think of a masjid and then just because you have a technology connection to the masjid doesn't mean that you have a physical connection to that masjid and that Tada we re citation The answer is you can listen to the Quran being recited, but you cannot follow in Salah
And liveness question is similar to that.
So Mejia says my daughter eight year old sound ECAM daughter says she's making doll for her dream room, but it's not getting accepted. Why not? So ALLAH SubhanA data answers.
Doe has in one of three three ways, my dear sister, so Allah subhanaw data will either say yes, and you'll have your dream room. Or you will say yes, Allah subhanaw taala answers your door and says yes, but I have something better for you. So maybe this dream room that you're waiting for maybe Allah subhanaw taala has, maybe the Coronavirus is going to be over and there's some new things coming out and it's better than what you think is your dream room. This is your double dream room. So yes, but it's coming later. Or it may be that Allah subhanaw taala has something better for you. So Allah Subhana Allah says, Yes, but I have something better for you. Maybe you're going to move
into a new house instead of doing this dream room and then the new house has a double, triple amazing dream room. So but the thing is, you never want to say that Allah didn't answer my door. So the prophets of Allah is m said, Allah will answer all doors, so long as a person doesn't say I made dua, and it wasn't answered. So you never want to say like that. You just keep making your door and caring about it. Allah
one or two last questions, Laura.
Laura carmudi says Zach, looking for all your wisdom, how do you find that genuine connection to Allah subhanaw taala in your doors, the genuine connection to Allah and your dogs. So
Laura, what I was talking about is when there is a dog that we really, really care about is usually from pain. Like I said, if somebody has a child with a serious illness, or an exam the next day or citizenship, or you get the idea there are when it comes from pain, usually there's this serious, genuine connection into our persons crying person staying up at night, because they really care about the dog. So what I was talking about was, how do you get a dog that is coming from thankfulness, and not from pain, but still have the same passion. So that's what the whole course is Laura, the visionary Ramadan is going to be all about that. But in specific, I'll give you one.
One idea is that if it is something that your heart truly desires, so let's suppose somebody's an accountant, and they hate accounting, and they're like, oh, Allah, you know, let me get a promotion at work and they hate accounting but what they really really care about is they want to write children's books for example. So because they care so much about that and maybe it was a dream that was stifled since they were little kid and because they care about that dream it brings so emotion then they bring something like that up in their jaw and they're like a little child crying for something that they cared about for so many years, then that's where you get the connection in your
when you get those kinds of doors. Then your sulla goes the next level your connection to Allah subhanaw taala goes next level and the visionary Ramadan program is about finding those type of doors making them specific, and I have like a formula on how to do that. Over the years.
I get this is the last question.
And we are done. It's half an hour after the hour. Mr. Fuller Khan welcome for odd
Should I have my dogs
ready before Ramadan or make them during I usually design my guys during Ramadan because that's where I get the inspiration and I and I aim to have them ready for the last 10 nights of Ramadan if you design your doors before Ramadan then you don't have the same inspiration for it the way that Ramadan gives you inspiration. So that's what I like to do design my dogs in Ramadan so that they're ready to go for the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Does that go well hang on everybody. Great session today. Like I said, I have a special webinar bonus. We haven't chosen the time yet, but it's going to be on the topic of what does it mean to trust the plan of Allah when you don't even know what the
plan of Allah is? That's my question. webinar details coming soon. Check out visionary ramadan.com SOCO Ohana and sound like
bye bye. Hold on
