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

And he's in charge of tending to sheep. So he takes all the sheep out to the, to the, you know, the mountainside, and the sheep are grazing and whatnot. And then this boy, you know, there's like a little pond there. So the boy leaves the sheep, and he goes swimming.

00:00:17--> 00:00:32

So he's having fun, he's enjoying himself. And while he's swimming, a wolf comes in, it doesn't eat one of the she'd like, eats one sheet, and it eats the second one, the third one, it has like the biggest buffet it ever had in its life, it eats the entire flock.

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

And so he finishes swimming, he, you know, dries himself off, gets up, and he sees the entire flock is wiped out.

00:00:42--> 00:00:47

And he said, the hustler is this boy going back to his master

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

saying that he's lost the entire flock. And you'll see that in war times, for example, someone going in with, you know,

00:00:58--> 00:01:27

a battalion of airplanes, going in with, you know, 1720 airplanes, and having their entire group be killed. And only like the general coming back, and the sadness. People would retire after that after they've lost so many people that hustle. And this is a lot of hard data saying and to pull enough senior hustler, the person will come back on the Day of Judgment. Yeah, hustler. He'll, this is what he'll have. But of course, that'll be the day of judgment, just to give you like a little glimpse of

00:01:29--> 00:01:36

what it's like, a very tiny glimpse to come back on that day, without preparing the proper cookies.

00:01:39--> 00:02:12

Mahabharata, he says that the most naive thing in my eyes is to linger in sin with no regrets hoping for a far off pardon. You know, naive. Note the word naive means ignorant. Not necessarily ignorant, naive, like if I told you, I'll sell you a bridge in Brooklyn for $50 Hmm, gullible, naive, and you'll be like, $50, right? That's a great deal. Here it is, you know, you put it in, like, Okay, thanks. And then I'm gone. And then you go to New York to pick up your bridge. And it's not that

00:02:13--> 00:02:41

naive. He's saying that someone like dumb like, this is someone who wants to continue doing sins. And he just hopes that later on in life, he, he's just going to be forgiven by Allah. He doesn't care. He's just going through life doing this stuff, doing whatever he wants. And that one day, Allah is just going to forgive him for everything and everything will be happy. He says, that's the most naive person, the most gullible, the dumbest person is this guy.

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

Don't use that word further.

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

And then he said into hope, the naive person, the gullible person, is to hope to come closer to a law without doing anything. They think that you're going to come closer to Allah, and the god man is going to just zoom up by doing nothing is going to miraculously just fall down upon you banging the head.

00:03:03--> 00:03:09

And then to await the harvest of Jenna, with the seeds of hellfire.

00:03:10--> 00:03:29

Like, he's planting seeds of hope for his entire life. And then when he dies, he's hoping to go to Jenna, waiting for reward reward without doing any good deeds, and Subhanallah sometimes, I don't know if you've heard of the ruling. And there's a lot of scholars here. But there's a difference of opinion amongst the scholars.

00:03:30--> 00:04:06

That is someone who doesn't pray, are they Muslim or not? There's a difference among the signs and very deep, like differences of opinion. Some of the scholars say that if someone doesn't pray, they're not Muslim anymore. They're the five slots are awesome over Russia. If they start praying, they're not Muslim. I said there's difference between other people say that they're still Muslim, but they're just lazy Muslims and they're in big trouble. But there's still some other people saying they should be treated like a farm. They should be treated like a farm. And they took it to the point where they say that they should even be buried in the cemetery of the farm because they died

00:04:06--> 00:04:13

like this for not praying. And it's a very serious issue. I remember asking Sheriff sir in Medina University,

00:04:14--> 00:04:25

and I didn't ask them sorry, someone else asked them they said that, you know, my father, you know, he passed away and I'd like to do Hutch for him this year. Can I do Hutch for him? Knowing that he never used to pray.

00:04:26--> 00:04:40

He never did his salon. And and the shift said and then these are like from the oldest shoe in Medina. He said, You don't have to do much for him. If he didn't pray, there's no fridge for him because he died in arms.

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

that serious?

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

random people where am I going?

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

Okay. So with that rulings panola there was a another older lady that

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

She's asking about, you know, her husband, she wants to hedge fund also. And then this issue came up, she said he never used to pray. And I thought to myself panel, like, we think that we can just live our lives doing anything we want. And when someone dies, we can just make a good, you know, lecture and recite Koran, and Subhanallah, you'll see people that don't normally come to the masjid, like at their funeral. Kind of like the people that come to the funeral. I remember on a lot in Washington, DC, there's a sister that passed away. And they said, there's gonna be janazah at the time, I'm like, fine, I wasn't like dressed properly. I was like working at the school and it was

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

summertime. And then I was shocked when the time came.

00:05:45--> 00:06:11

He had like shifts offered a D shift and flows in all these scholars were there. And the masjid was packed as if it was like a Juma prayer. You know, and I'm basically wearing my pajamas. Because we're working in the school in the summer. And I was like, What's going on here? You know, and there was a huge crowd for the sister. And shift fosun gave a lecture, I don't think she was on this year.

00:06:13--> 00:06:20

And then they took her to the job, and even her non Muslim relatives who are sitting in the back, they said that when we die, we want to be buried like this.

00:06:21--> 00:07:01

And they're non Muslim. And the reason they're saying I asked her, like, Who was this lady? And how did she evoke such strong emotions from everybody? It said that she was like, one of the one of the strongest Muslims in Washington, DC. And she started practicing, like, put on center, you know, from 2030 years ago. And she was one of the key people to bring the proper understanding of politeness and to many of the people in the Washington DC area inside inside the DC area. And a lot of the people actually learned and studied or came closer to the correct team through here. And I Lost Planet Allah bluster. You know, you can see that in her inner death.

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

There was, um, there's a poetry line, actually, you guys like poetry.

00:07:10--> 00:07:13

Music is poetry, right? They try putting songs together. But

00:07:15--> 00:07:20

there's a poetry line that says, tunnel vision agenda, what I'm just look myself

00:07:22--> 00:07:28

in the Safina letters reality ever seen, which means that, that you hope

00:07:29--> 00:07:41

to be forgiven, you hope for redemption. But you haven't traveled the path of that redemption, you haven't traveled that path of that forgiveness. Boats don't travel in the desert.

00:07:42--> 00:07:47

And you have to take your boat needs to put it in the proper water for it to get to this destination panel, I was

00:07:49--> 00:08:08

thinking that I gave this lecture like a long time ago. And remember, in the beginning, for those who are here, we had a little activity were we thinking, putting ourselves into the seat of someone who's actually got into a car accident this morning, on the way to Mr. Moore's conference, on what kind of things they would see, hear and feel in the ambulance.

00:08:09--> 00:08:19

And so we talked about these things. It's upon Allah. Allah gave me a taste of this. And it was actually September 11, the week right after September 11.

00:08:21--> 00:08:31

September 18, on a Tuesday, at like about 12 in the afternoon, I was leaving the school and I went to do some supply shopping for my classes.

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

And Subhanallah in a split second.

00:08:35--> 00:08:40

You know, my life could have been over, I was crossing an intersection. There's a very

00:08:41--> 00:09:03

busy like highway kind of going through this town. And I was crossing the intersection going across like this, like eight lanes, and they actually have like speed bumps for people that are coming down this hill, because they're coming in at very high speeds. So all I remember is my eyes turning like this, as I was crossing, I thought to myself, I go my going through the red light.

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

And then I'm in the hospital. You know, just like that. The second

00:09:10--> 00:09:22

and, and even that, that thing about the red light. actually had to remember that afterwards. Maybe, you know, the next day, I was remembering what had actually happened. What had happened was this. This lady had a female.

00:09:23--> 00:09:34

She had gone to the red light at a very high speed very, maybe 60 miles an hour, at least. And actually all she did was hit the back of the car swerved hit the back of my car.

00:09:35--> 00:09:43

But that bump in the car ignited the airbags right arm countries you don't have eggs. Unless you have like the newer cars I would have been dead by now.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

The airbag came out. The airbag comes out so swiftly that a document conscious so the airbag went Wham hit me in the head and I fell into concussion. But the car still moving forward.

00:10:00--> 00:10:16

Alright, so I'm unconscious, and the cars moving for the car swerves out, hits another car, and then goes like kind of like off a little cliff and slams into a pole. My car so the actually the front of the car came all the way to the windshield.

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

So the entire front of the car and it was destroyed the car.

00:10:22--> 00:10:52

But it hit on the on the passenger side, not on the driver's side. So I got cut in the leg and unconscious right and like I said about the blood. I actually I was talking about myself when I said it because I had blood on my clothes. And I'm like I felt okay, but when you see your, you know your clothes drenched in blood, you like something was to happen. And so when Allah Allah remembers, you know, no, I need to go back to school, they're waiting for me I have a class I have to teach. And and the police officers talking to me and he's saying, you know,

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

just like you see in the movies, the final scene in the guys go in and you know, the lights of the

00:10:58--> 00:11:33

hospital are are going on top and the doctor saying, you know, you're really lucky you had your seatbelt on, I put the seatbelt on, maybe five seconds before the accident. Does that mean they have it and it's not a good habit. And I've learned my lesson, though, of starting the car and driving like supposing in the car here. I'll drive and then when I get to the first red light, that's when I'll put the seatbelt on. You guys have that habit? Or you guys don't try to do, right. Yeah, you know, cuz you boys, you're waiting at the red light. That's when you put your seatbelt on. So I was at the red light, I left the Parking Lot went to red light at the red light, put the seatbelt on.

00:11:33--> 00:11:46

And then I crossed and then and then was it like this. And then I thought to myself, the doctors talking are sorry, the police officers talking. And I couldn't reply to him. I could hear him and I remember hearing him. But I couldn't say anything.

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

And I felt what it's like,

00:11:49--> 00:12:04

you know, firsthand what it's like to not have control of what you say. In those final moments. You don't have control over what you say. It's impossible to like say Oh, c'est la, la La and then you're like, Okay, now I'll go to Jenna, let me just say that.

00:12:06--> 00:12:17

And everything's all happy and fine. If everything you said that moment comes from your heart, you can't say anything off the top of your head and you can't use your your brain to make, you know,

00:12:19--> 00:12:26

use logic, it comes out unconsciously. If you live in London or someone in your life, it'll come out at that time,

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

it will come out.

00:12:29--> 00:12:35

And similarly, if you feel your lives with things that take you away from that level of love from the rest of the law, when that moment comes,

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

then you might not you might be full in those days. Like we said,

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

you never know when that's gonna happen.

00:12:45--> 00:13:12

So continue from that off, finish off the story for you of that the police officer. So the first one wasn't a good ending. This next one, he said the police officer that we mentioned earlier, fell back into routine scenarios and started to drift away from Allah. So even as a police officer, he sees people dying every day. He's still not not practicing it to something happen. So but another event happened to him that sealed his return to a loss of hometown and he continues.

00:13:13--> 00:13:19

He says What an odd world. After some time, about six months, a strange accident took place.

00:13:21--> 00:13:26

A young man was moving along the highway normally, but within one of the tunnels leading to the city.

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

He was named by a flat tire.

00:13:30--> 00:14:14

And so if you ever been to Saudi Arabia, they get these big Caprice, you know, caprices. We don't have too many of the American cars, but they sell them to the Saudis. Hmm. Like police cars. Yeah. Those, you know, the big fat cars and they're there. In Saudi, they drive them like 100 miles an hour and there's no cops and they just drive them everywhere. So this guy, he gets a flat tire in a tunnel. There's no like side road or anything. So he's in the middle of the tunnel, and he's trying to fix this flat tire. And then another car. One of these caprices comes coming in at 100 miles an hour while he's fixing the time. So he's like in getting open up opening the trunk

00:14:15--> 00:14:36

to get his tire out and fixing it. And this car comes and pounds in from the back. Okay. A young man was moving along. I came by the flat tire to the side of the tunnel. He parked and stepped to the back to remove the spare tire. The whistle of a speeding car from behind in a second collided with the crippled car. The young man in between the two of them.

00:14:38--> 00:14:44

He fell to the ground with critical injuries. I rushed to the scene myself and another partner other than the first one.

00:14:45--> 00:14:55

Together we carried the young man's body into our patrol car and phone the hospital to prepare for his arrival. He was a young adult in his blossom years, kind of like your ages.

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

You guys try. 16 years old.

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

Be careful.

00:15:02--> 00:15:45

Religious, you could tell from his, from his appearance, he was mumbling when we carried him. But in our rush, we paid no attention to what he was saying. However, when we placed him on his back in the patrol car, and like they drove off, we can make it out, like what he was saying, through the pain, his heart was reciting put on, he was so immersed in the citation. So panela, you would never have said that this person was intense pain. So this boy is in critical condition. He's in the, you know, the stretcher, and he's going to his death. And the words that are coming from his heart are the sewers that he memorized. So he's reciting. Blood has soaked his clothes, Crimson read his bones and

00:15:45--> 00:16:19

clearly snapped in several places. And to tell the truth, he looked like he was staring into the eyes of death. He continued to read in his unique tender voids, reciting every verse, and proper rhythm in my entire life. I never heard any resuscitation like it. I said to myself, I'm going to instruct him to say the Shahada, just like I saw my friend doing, especially since I had previous experience, my partner and I listen to that, intently to that soft voice. I felt the shiver shocked my back and up my arm and the hairs to

00:16:21--> 00:16:34

suddenly the him ceased. I was shy me. So he turns around into the car and looks at the boy, as his hand rose softly, the boys in critical condition, he's now raising his hand. He doesn't need anybody to tell him to say that.

00:16:36--> 00:17:20

He had his index finger pointed upward to the heavens, saying the Shahada that ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah. Then his head slumped, and nothing. I jumped to the back seat, felt his hand, his heart, his breathing. He was dead. I couldn't stop staring at him. A tear fell, but I hit it in shame. I turned back to my partner and told him that the boy's life had ceased, and he burst out loud crying, seeing a man cry like that. I cannot control myself and my partner faded away behind the fall of my own tears, the patrol car fog from the emotions, we arrived at the hospital. And as we rushed through the corridors, we told all the doctors, nurses and onlookers, what had

00:17:20--> 00:17:42

happened. So many people were affected by what we said that some stood there speechless, speechless and cheerful. No one wanted to lose sight of the boy that had been assured of the time and place he would be buried until they were sure the time place he would be buried. One of the hospital staff phoned the boy's home to tell them that the bones dead. His brother picked it up, and was totally accident.

00:17:43--> 00:17:51

His brother told us about him, and he said, this is brother speaking about it. He used to go out every Monday to visit his only grandmother outside of town.

00:17:53--> 00:18:30

Whenever he visited her, he made sure to spend time with the poor, poor children, I doing the streets and the orphans. The town knew him. He was the one that would bring them in signing books and tapes. His dusty monster would be filled with rice and sugar, and even candies couldn't forget the candies. For those families who were in need. He would not stand for anyone to discourage him from the long journey to that town. He would always politely reply that the long drive give him time to review his put on and listen to static lectures on his cassette deck. And that with every step to the town, he hoped for the reward that he would find that the last

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

Well, that's monetized isn't

00:18:36--> 00:18:55

in the love of Lima, Bella, Amano amilo salon in her thumb that was part of dialysis were in need of that not only is the law forgiving allies are forgiving, like someone who does something repeatedly ever heard of someone named the jaw,

00:18:56--> 00:19:09

the jaw, right? The it's the kind of same like a butcher, someone who's always slaughtering meat. It's the same like wording in Arabic Mufasa is someone who's always forgiving Allah subhanaw taala is

00:19:11--> 00:19:50

and then Allah subhanaw taala says to who demon Nila Pharaoh Lehman turbo, I'm that Allah, Allah is Forgiving for those people who asked for forgiveness. Those people actually try coming back to the last panel God, the mentor, but what am and believe, while I made a sleight of hand and do good deeds from that, and then they're guided after that, those are the people who will last on valuable help. And in fact, when you make the intention to come back to a Lost Planet, alone make that easy for you. Just like you've heard in the Hadith, that when the person you know, puts his hand out to Allah, Allah puts his arm out. When the person comes walking through a lot less than 100 pound it

00:19:50--> 00:19:57

comes right into them. So you'll see the person tries just a little bit to come closer to a lot and things will open up for the person

00:20:04--> 00:20:07

Okay, there's a there's a joke.

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

I'm gonna tell you a joke.

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

Well, you won't hear jokes.

00:20:13--> 00:20:13

Okay?

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

There's a joke, a joke that the Christian said.

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

So I'm going to modify it a little bit for the Sunday

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

there's a flood into town many times it happens in

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

North Dakota we get floods up there. I'm from Winnipeg, actually, Manitoba. It's above North Dakota. So it's in North Dakota. You know, the floods

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

and the police have asked everybody to evacuate the city.

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

So there's a there's a priest

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

and he won't evacuate because he knows God will save

00:20:51--> 00:21:03

alright so so they someone drives by and they're like priests get in the car Come on, you know, the the floods are coming, he's gonna drown. He goes, No, no, God will save me. And then they're like, okay, and they leave.

00:21:05--> 00:21:26

So then, you know, the floodwaters are getting pretty deep. And it gets get getting deeper and deeper. So the priest is like, swimming in the water. Right? He's swimming and he's waddling around. And so these you know, people come by with canoe. And they and they're like, cannot come on Reverend Get in, get in the the canoe, you know, will save you and stuff. And he says, No, no, God will save me.

00:21:27--> 00:21:48

Right. And it's just go, God, God will save me. I don't need your help. Say swimming in this. He finds like, you know, the waters getting deeper and deeper. He finds like a hill climbs up the hill. The waters like filling, he's just right at the end. He's on the top of the highest place, the waters about to fill. So they bring in a helicopter. They see him stranded, they like put down the rope.

00:21:49--> 00:21:53

And then they tell him you know, come on Reverend get on get in the row will save you.

00:21:54--> 00:22:00

And it's his last breath. And he said no, no, go. God will save me. Leave me.

00:22:02--> 00:22:11

So they're like, okay, his helicopter flies away. And of course, the water finishes him off. And he's dead. He died.

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

That's not good.

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

So then he goes back to angels are like, you know,

00:22:18--> 00:22:25

the angels are talking to him. And then and then this guy goes, you know, why didn't you save me? Why wasn't I saying he wants to know what went wrong.

00:22:27--> 00:22:38

And then the angel said, We sent you two people in the car with the canoe, we sent you the helicopter. What's your problem? You know, so this is what they tell someone

00:22:40--> 00:22:46

as a Muslim, a lot of people they think that you know, their Savior is just gonna come come slamming down upon them.

00:22:48--> 00:23:28

And, and when we say that Allah subhanaw taala will guide us What are we actually thinking of? Because Allah subhanaw taala he sent the books, you'll see the bronzer right there, right there abandoned? Right there. We didn't even notice that there's a lot of center. And unless in the Warner's and the glad Titus, you have, I think, you know how many of you are here today? Maybe 20 of them, telling people what to do. Again and again. So when we hear something's how long we've actually heard it many, many times, so that people come the profits came last parent Alison Prophet, after prophet. So this is our car, and our canoe, our helicopter. In fact, every night Allah

00:23:28--> 00:23:47

subhanaw taala comes down in the third portion of the night. As the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and Allah Spano, tala calls out to everybody had him in their infested Ebola. Is there anybody who makes it so that I'll answer the DA? Hellman? Mr. Phillips? Is there anybody who asked forgiveness that I'll forgive?

00:23:49--> 00:24:24

But it's us that have abandoned it. And actually, we're laughing at the priests. We need to protect ourselves from not falling into that position. Because the warnings have come. And actually, when you look at it, you know, when you have like a big exam coming up, the teacher keeps warning, it's gonna be hard. It's gonna be hard, but you decide, no, I'm gonna leave it to the last moment. And I'm gonna, you know, cram for this exam and right at the last moment you try studying, but it's just that night, you're just too tired, you have to sleep become an exam. It's too hard. You fail. Can you really go back to the teacher and complain that you didn't tell me that the exam was hard. You

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

can't go back. You failed, then you know or that person's fail. And they can only blame themselves and they have the hassle and so on the day of judgment when that death comes because like I said, it'll come in a snap you can be crossing you could just be coming out of you know, this section some sister come, man, her car, the airbags go off and you know, like you see in the movies, the gasoline start trickling, and then the car explodes and you're dead and it'll be in like, all the newspapers, you know, accident and mustard ignore. Nobody really knows who you are. And then you're gone. And then you'll think like, oh, but I thought I would be living for 16

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

years ago, I was planning later on to become a good Muslim. I wasn't planning today, I still wasn't even planning in this lecture. When you're listening to me, are you thinking like, yeah, I want to go to university, I'm gonna become Muslim.

00:25:11--> 00:25:16

When I, when I get married, I'm like, Are you thinking I need to change right now?

00:25:17--> 00:25:22

And don't think that, you know, I'm just giving it to you when I give these lectures,

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

like the tapes, sometimes I'll just sit back and listen to myself. Not, you know, telling you the tapes. But I'll

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

I'll take the tape and I'll listen to it.

00:25:35--> 00:25:42

And like, you know, I become like a different person and stuff. I'll listen to the tape, just like you're listening to the lecture, I think, did I really say that?

00:25:43--> 00:25:49

And then I said, Man, I need to be practicing these things. Because it's, it's a

00:25:51--> 00:25:58

like, when we talk about Islam, everything's like, so perfect, because time is a perfect, but even us we need to work on.

00:25:59--> 00:26:09

So inshallah Tada, the key is to make the intention. If you're going to, you're thinking, how am I going to come closer back to Allah subhanaw taala. before my time comes,

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

then

00:26:13--> 00:26:14

finishes Fischer 1130.

00:26:16--> 00:26:24

Number one is make it small, something that you're capable of think of one thing that standing between you and a loss of time. So think of that.

00:26:27--> 00:26:30

You thought of something standing between you and a loss of time.

00:26:32--> 00:26:38

And then actually might be something very dear to quote unquote, dear, but might be something that you're doing that you know, is not right.

00:26:40--> 00:26:44

All right, everybody's got that thing you've got, and I got mine.

00:26:45--> 00:26:50

All right, then you think that if it's just one thing, and I'm going to try and change in my life,

00:26:51--> 00:27:01

that let it be this? And when you think to yourself, you're like, how am I going to stop doing this? It's actually very hard for me to stop. And when you think like that, you're thinking like that, because

00:27:04--> 00:27:14

because you think it's you that are trying to make you're trying? Or sorry, the word is, you're trying to put it all on your back.

00:27:15--> 00:27:48

Right? someone's doing something wrong. It's like I want to change it, but I'm too weak. Allah subhanaw taala is alchemy is is the powerful one. And so don't think that it's you that's going to change by yourself. ask Allah Spano Tata, to help you change because a Lost Planet Allah has the power to change your emotions. And so if you're doing something hot on Can you know what's wrong, but you can, you know, you enjoy it, it's dear to you. Make it to Allah subhanaw taala to make you hate this, from the bottom of your heart, make you hate it

00:27:50--> 00:27:53

for someone here at last year's lecture.

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

And I was talking about

00:27:59--> 00:28:06

Okay, the television set. Okay, there might be other ham things, some panela the television set.

00:28:07--> 00:28:11

I hate it from the bottom of my heart. I hate it with a passion.

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

And

00:28:15--> 00:28:34

I'm talking about you know, actually movies might be different. A lot. I'm not talking about those things. But specifically when I see a television set, I get very angry of the of the way that it like, corrupts someone's mind. And it corrupts this. So actually, if I go to a hotel room, first thing I do is go and unplug the television set.

00:28:35--> 00:28:58

To have it in the room, that big one I just sitting there in front of me. And then I'll go in and plug it so that I won't feel the urge to grab the remote control. And so let me just watch 15 which turns into three hours. All right. Even though someone may hate it is because they draw their attention. So hello, we took we had a step over in our muster with the with the boys in our school.

00:28:59--> 00:29:15

And they're like, they're at the camp or the sleep over and they're like, we got to watch the NBA game. You know, it's the finals, you have to watch it. Like if you wanted to watch it, you shouldn't have come to the gym, you could stay home, you know, get make your popcorn and sit in lounge in front of the TV set. Actually pretend like you're actually doing sports.

00:29:17--> 00:29:34

So they're like, okay, okay, we don't want to watch it and stuff like that. And one of them had actually brought an antenna to the masjid so that they could hook it up to one of these. One of these sisters TV sets, so they could watch the game. So then we took them bowling, right. We walked into the bowling area.

00:29:35--> 00:30:00

And there was a TV set on in the in the bowling area. They I don't think there's a magnet this powerful. But the entire group maybe like 12 brothers. They swarm to the television sets. All of them. So like this is like the eye right here. Here's the camera I they all went. They all came to it. You know, like zombies and I actually here's the TV set was up

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

On the screen, I stood in front of a TV set looking at their faces.

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

Someone want to make a TV face What does the TV face look like?

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

You look pretty weird if you do

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

it What does your face look like when you make

00:30:22--> 00:30:27

TV face? We can get a camera and make a competition who can make the best TV This

00:30:29--> 00:30:33

is usually you know what, you know the spit Julian from the mouth.

00:30:34--> 00:30:44

Keep the muscles in your in your in your cheeks, relax, your face relaxes. And you just you become a vegetable. And when you look at it, I don't want to do because the cameras on right now.

00:30:46--> 00:31:14

But I'm sure you understand. So all these kids had zombie faces. I was going like this. Hello, hello. You know and materials like on top, Mrs. honolua, the kind of, you know, drug that that TV set is doing is parallel when when someone opens a book, they're like, I want to open my mind I want to learn something. And then when they want to relax, quote, unquote, relax their brain muscles, they turn on the television set, right? Like, oh, that was a hard exam. Let me watch TV.

00:31:15--> 00:31:34

They've now relax their muscles. What happens when you relax your muscles, it becomes flabby. And it becomes like a worthless muscle. So actually what that TV does to the person turns into a flabby, worthless muscle. So you need to strengthen your brain muscles, do brain push ups, stuff, open up a book.

00:31:37--> 00:31:41

There's some other stuff I had, but you saw that anybody had any questions?

00:31:43--> 00:31:46

Questions, comments? It's really easy on these kind of lectures because

00:31:48--> 00:32:04

nobody differs about death. If I talked about music, and singing, I talked about you know other things. Okay, there's questions on when you talk about death, everybody knows you're gonna die, whether they're Christian, Jew, Muslim, everybody knows that you're going to die. When we were studying in Medina.

00:32:05--> 00:32:06

When we were studying in Medina,

00:32:07--> 00:32:20

probably studying like scholar the difference of opinion among scholars until he came to the book of funeral prayers in the Islamic jurisprudence and this shift always he started off that class, he said, an Admiralty law.

00:32:21--> 00:32:23

He said that there's no difference.

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

Everybody knows.

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

So maybe someone wanted to hear about something that maybe we can talk about.

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

Can you talk louder? Okay.

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

They see okay, now.

00:33:14--> 00:33:38

Yeah, the accidents happen like actually the province of Eliasson, him, he told us, this is the gift card of the morning and evening, right? And you'll see it in Davos, maybe you haven't made it part of your life. But the problem sort of lies and I'm, like you said about that. You don't say 10 times, and so on. Some of those things are authentic, you can actually ask them for a job. Look here. I'm sure that the jobs they have here are authentic. They're authentic ones that the Prophet civilize them said.

00:33:39--> 00:33:45

So for example, you would wake up in the morning morning sort of learning center. And just like you get in the conscious chronologies of Fatherland,

00:33:47--> 00:34:04

like that's authentic, the prophet in the Quran, in fact, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would do it. And there are other ones like that. One for example, that the profit sort of learning systems taught us was Bismillah and lavilla reminds me of the world of cinema or submit it to say that three times after fetching and after awesome

00:34:05--> 00:34:46

Bismillah which means In the name of Allah, who who you know against Nothing can happen except that which Allah subhana wa tada decrees so anything bad that was planning to happen if you make that drop Lost Planet Allah will protect you from those things. Actually, when I'm when I get out in the morning, and I and I haven't said the door and I'm actually getting in the car. Sometimes I won't even like Start the car, select Finish saying these doors or try to save them quickly. If I don't save them. I feel like you know, I'm a moving target for for something bad or either devils or gins and so on. recently there's been I know you guys like these kinds of things. gym possession,

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

exorcisms, you like that stuff.

00:34:53--> 00:34:55

gym possession exorcism. Recently, there's been

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

you know, people phoning me up and saying, you know, I'm

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

By Jenner or someone in my family is possessed by gin. So can you help us? There's a lot of that stuff in Proxima

00:35:09--> 00:35:09

Jin possession.

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

Why do people get possessed? much?

00:35:15--> 00:35:19

Okay, so, so the first thing, I'll tell them

00:35:21--> 00:35:37

okay, so like a sister, they said, We think she's possessed by Jim, can you? You know, tell us some sorcerer say? I said number one, she probably doesn't wear hijab, does she? They're like, No, No, she doesn't. And she doesn't prayer five salon. And she goes, No, she doesn't nicely the way you want to read.

00:35:39--> 00:35:44

If you're not practicing is in the first place. What's the point I'm gonna do for her? She doesn't believe in it.

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

She's not practicing. And that's why she's possessed in the first place.

00:35:52--> 00:36:13

Because if she made her daughter, and she sought the protection of Allah Spano, dada, when you, when you get out of the house, these are all when you say, are the Ministry of Energy, say all law protect me from the chiffon? If someone never says those things, then Allah is not protecting them actually from the Shaitaan. So the shutdowns take over their lives. They take over.

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

And there's more to the gym.

00:36:22--> 00:36:23

Okay, this question is

00:36:26--> 00:36:32

really paying attention. There are there have been things that people have claimed, in the Koran, that

00:36:33--> 00:36:37

Thai 911 to the Muslims and Islam? Are they true?

00:36:40--> 00:36:50

That this stuff looks Manila, the first time I saw that they're like, go to Surah nine, verse 11, and verse 111, and go here and there, verse 911.

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

And then

00:36:54--> 00:37:01

it has nothing to do with September 11. Actually, even those verses that they're quoting, when I read it, I'm like, so,

00:37:02--> 00:37:22

you know, like, it has nothing to do with with 911. Just they just say like, Look, this verse has something to do with 911. And then the person's like, they never even thought twice about, hey, this actually has nothing to do with 911. with them, they're like, Wow, it does. That's number one, it has nothing to do with 911. Number two is that this is the way of the Christians.

00:37:23--> 00:37:25

This is the way of the Christians in that they.

00:37:28--> 00:38:07

They like to look for like these hidden meanings and these numerology and try to find hidden meanings behind the numbers Allah subhanaw taala. Never, it doesn't say in the Quran that search to put on through some numerical secrets. Nowhere it says in the plan. And you'll see that maybe the same person who's so concerned about that, verse nine, verse 11, they probably never read surah nine. And that verse, they're not even looking at the meaning of it, maybe the eyes before or the eye after it. The message is, you know, slapping them in the face the message of the font, and they're like, what does the hidden, you know,

00:38:08--> 00:38:38

superstitious meaning and they've never actually tried to seek out the the point blank meaning of the coupon. And I grew up actually, in this kind of an atmosphere in Canada, we had a lot of kind of speakers that were there would always say, you know, why did the law say this in the Quran, it means this. And they were like trying to find some hidden, deeper meanings. And I thought to myself that nobody actually knows the apparent meaning in the first place. When someone says it didn't sit.

00:38:39--> 00:38:46

Well, I looked for a hidden meaning when the meaning on the top on the surface, is there for everybody guide us to the strip.

00:38:48--> 00:39:02

It's just a parent, why do you have to go to somewhere deeper and look at the numbers and there's seven verses in that and go here, when they don't even know the apparent meaning. So you don't really have to worry about things like that. When you get an email like that. Just delete it.

00:39:03--> 00:39:04

And it won't bother you anymore.

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

It says Can anyone see a gym?

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

Can anyone see a gym?

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

There have been

00:39:19--> 00:39:25

like, you know, like I said, exorcisms there have been scholars and actually if you get a religious to,

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

to talk to us abilities talking to them

00:39:30--> 00:39:50

after this Okay, as soon as it comes in, ask them this question. Because I think a villager has done exorcisms. So you get first hand account of someone who's done an extra. So when he says any questions, don't sit quietly like you sitting quietly, say, brother. You know, Chef Abdullah, can you tell us about the exorcism that you did in Toronto? And then you get really excited

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

that you asked him what he has done exorcism. I think he did it to be a sister. And he'll tell you

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

What happened?

00:40:01--> 00:40:04

Or what happened during that? exorcism?

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

Any other questions?

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

Comments.

00:40:25--> 00:40:31

Hear this question, it says, How should we advise a friend who does not pray? Should we not be friends with them anymore?

00:40:32--> 00:40:36

That's a good question. Because sometimes we think when someone's doing something bad,

00:40:37--> 00:40:45

the only way to show our is that we're following Islam is to treat them badly. And this is incorrect. Because sometimes,

00:40:47--> 00:41:09

like, in the end, we want that person to start praying, for example, we want the person start praying. So you look at what happened. Like you imagined to yourself. Here we are. You know, this is Farzana, and this is sister Homer. Homer wants Rosana to play her solo. And then so she imagines you know, five months in the future. You want to come?

00:41:13--> 00:41:14

Okay, so.

00:41:15--> 00:41:34

So, you said, I was talking to Arizona, she wants presents, but she thinks to five months into the future for zonas. Right? Good job, and she's praying her five salon, she's a very good Muslim. Now, if you're in that, you know, think of that future and then work your way back and think what happened for her to get into this situation?

00:41:36--> 00:41:59

You say, for example, you know, I took her out for pizza. And then she became, you know, good friends with the sisters in the masjid. And we invited to the Holocaust, and she came to the Holocaust. And she herself without being told, she started praying with us. And then later on, you know, she started praying at home, she felt that it made a change in her life. And then later on five months later, she started praying.

00:42:00--> 00:42:04

Okay, so that might be, you know, your blueprint for success. If you

00:42:05--> 00:42:39

do like this, for example, should we not be friends with anymore? Here's Rosana, here's Homer, it can either go up in a positive way, or it can go down in a negative way. If for example, you say, Oh, you don't pray, you must not be Muslim brother Mohammed said that people who don't fare and Muslim, and you didn't really understand what I said, but and then so she's like, What do you mean, not Muslim? You know, and she might have like, major problems in her al Qaeda, she gets mad at that she's insulted. Later on, someone says, Let's go later on today to the next lecture. And she's like, I don't care about what he says, you know, someone said that I don't pray and I don't want to come

00:42:39--> 00:42:52

back anymore. So she's like, let's just go to the shopping center. She goes to sovereign center, she buys like maybe her own clothes and then everything gets bad after that, and it just goes down the hill. So by actually getting angry at her and cutting her off,

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

he may have led her to misguide

00:42:56--> 00:43:01

you know, so you look at what can I do for her to help her to be a good Muslim?

00:43:02--> 00:43:08

And the question I would always have is, if you have a camel and you have a donkey, this is always like an Arabic thing.

00:43:09--> 00:43:12

They say that. If the camel hangs out with the donkey for a long time,

00:43:14--> 00:43:16

the camel will start sounding like a donkey.

00:43:18--> 00:43:58

So I thought to myself, I go, Well, why doesn't the donkey start sounding like a camel? The camel is supposed to be the good one in this thing. And so Hanalei, it seems that a lot of times it's the person with the evil that is more stronger than the person who's who's good. This person wants to go to Masjid and pray this other guy wants to, you know, go driving around in his car and go to a beach somewhere and have fun and do things. Obviously, that guy is gonna win out, right? Because these things are supposedly unfun. Right, but you have to you have to work hard to be strong. So if you are being good to him, befriending her, you have to make sure that that that goodness is stronger

00:43:58--> 00:44:00

than maybe the evil impulses. That's

00:44:01--> 00:44:05

right, inshallah. We're gonna close now, like I said, Tell me what happens with
