shala before we start,
I would like to thank Mashallah all of the alum and the seniors and the elders and those that are in charge of dementia,
for your kind hospitality and extending your hand and opening this place and allowing us to be here. I would like to thank all of those that are involved or like I don't even know who is involved, but whoever they are, they know who they are, for making this possible for allowing me to be asked Allah subhana wa Taala to bless you all, and your children and your families. And this blessed country.
smolov Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah or praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala the king, the master, the Sustainer, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and we send peace and blessings and blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my brothers before we start please something that is very important for yourself and for myself
is that whenever we come to a talk, we come to hotbar we come to listen. It is very important that we understand we are not here for me in entertainment. We are not here simply to see what does the brother have to say? This my brothers unfortunately, Dean is going down the entertainment industry road.
We are not here for entertainment purposes, my brothers. This is for the youth. For the seniors. We are not here simply because you know what i happen to pray a share and if I walk out now it's going to look very bad on my end. So inshallah let me just sit on the you know, I'll find the chair or maybe I'll find the corner. Wake me up when it's time to go in Sharla, lower low rather we come here with open hearts.
We come here with open hearts.
Because these were the halaqaat when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to sit down with the Sahaba these were the halaqaat that changed the world. So my brothers we come and we come with an eagerness. We come always with the intention that Yama I am the one that is most in need.
I am the one that is most in need.
when it comes to our Deen, where do we turn?
When it comes to understanding Islam, and understanding the Quran, and understanding that a hadith where do we go?
There's a 13
we first start at the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as he was the pinnacle,
then we go from Rasulullah to the Sahaba of the law talanji Mian, then from the Sahaba, we go to the VA and then from the turbine we go to their terrain, and this is the structure and this is the system then is not like any other science on Earth, any other science, any other knowledge, anything that comes in this world. As time goes on, it improves
any scientific research, it improves only with time being is the exact opposite.
Being as time goes by, more than is lost, authenticity is lost, proper understanding is lost. The closer the more you can go back, the stronger the knowledge, the better the understanding.
So when it comes to our Deen, who do we look to?
To the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions these were the people that understood the in the base
look my brothers let me be straight out. Tonight I'm going to mention things that are gonna make many people uncomfortable. Number one let me state i did not fly 24 hours to come here and insult you in any way shape or form. Nor did I come here to make you feel uncomfortable in any way shape or form. But having said that, I have not come here for entertainment purposes either.
You're not many of us we like the sort of Dean way you know what you rub my back. I rub your back You make me feel good. I'll make myself feel good. And we all walk out the wall fine and dandy.
This is not the my brother's the job of the MBA was never ever to sit there and make people feel comfortable. It was rather to deliver the message to the people.
My brothers the way that you and I are living our lives. Is that what Allah and His Prophet want?
you look at the lives of the Sahaba you look at the lives of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you compare that to your life, and you ask yourself, please for the love of Allah. You know what
All my new hobbies the side of the law Talamo that judge yourself before you are judged. weigh yourself before you are weighed, hold yourself accountable before you are held accountable. Ask yourself reflect, look at your life and then look at the measuring stick that a law sent Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that is the bar. That is the measuring stick. That is what Allah subhana wa Taala wants a law once from each and every one of us. He wants Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to the best of your ability. But that's the bar. That's the bar. There's a new word in town extremism. Do you have that in this country? You come to the west, Islam equals
extremism. It's so severe in the West that even Muslims now you say the word Islam, what do you think automatically? If not terrorism, you think the other one extremism? What an injustice to Islam? The two worst the most potent words have now been attributed to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala towards my brother's either extremism or what? terrorism? But when you think Islam What do you think? What do you think even now, one might amongst us even amongst our circles, we have amongst ourselves we have a new old and new common understanding as what we deem is too much. And what we deem is, this is the norm.
But you sets that bar
it's not Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we certainly
understand something my brothers this is this is a car that in your deen This is a fundamental This is a pillar in your deen Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the measuring stick that Allah sent.
Unfortunately, when we look at rasulillah we look at him as as if and of course, he cannot be compared to any human being. But we look at him as he is this
unique individual who has his own
I don't know what the words but we, we separate out. For example, when we say brother Luke Rasulullah Asad Habibi, but that's rasulillah salam ala
Habibi that Rasool Allah that Allah sent him to be the example for all of humanity from the time of Sahaba. And to the day of the AMA, Allah said, this is the example in rasulillah. There is a perfect example. This is what Allah wants. rasulillah is perfection. And Allah and His Prophet have stated that he is the middle ground. Rasool Allah is the middle path. Rasul Allah was not extreme in anything he did in anything he said, in the way that he lived his life. He was the balance that Allah wanted.
We need to understand anything more than rasulillah is extreme.
But anything less is also extreme.
We never look at the other end of the scale.
So I'll give you an example. Sometimes a brother, he has a beard like this. He does your brother, that's extreme. I say I'm happy and I'm prepared to accept as long as you're prepared to tell me that the man that's clean shaven is also extreme.
You with me? Do you understand what I'm going? He was the balance. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is what Allah wanted. It is so sad and unfortunate that you and I think that the Prophet of Allah made decisions that were between him and the law. Lo leyendecker O'Neill, however, he does not think he does not say he does not act from his own vain desires. Everything he does, everything he chooses, everything he decides, is divine revelation from a law.
So when he chose a simple life
How dare we, How shameful have we that we accused that knows the Prophet only lived like this? Because they went through tough times.
Look how easy we've become to make myself
feel good about the luxurious life that I leave? That is no way in the sooner of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam deep down in our hearts. What do we say? That No, no, no, no. I saw Long Long live the way he lives because they went through tough times. You and I we don't realize in directly what we're really saying is that Allah was up a hill to his prophet.
Deep down really if you if you dissect your words, really deep down what you're saying is Allah was his prophet and a lot open bracket on me.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
He was the balance. He was exactly what Allah wanted. And for the Sahaba they knew that their success was only by following him step by step, step by step they knew a lady they knew that true success is by following him some Allahu Allah use alum, not an inch more and not an inch less apt to live in the hot tub. Imagine a man who earned the name imagine being nicknamed anyone know what his nickname was?
much sooner, much sooner the Mad Men
who named him this.
He was also hobby
when people around him called him mage noona Suna, who was calling him this
other Sahaba were calling him much sooner. Why? But he knew like his father knew. He knew like his father knew when Mahatma became the Amir, and you know his rule, the 10 years of armor of the hapa became known as the golden era of Islam, the Golden Ages of Islam, when amagno hapa became the ruler and money started coming in. And luxuries now started to come in, you know, money was was now coming into Medina, those companions that were struggling for years under the rulership of Rasul Allah and under the rulership of you know, of
Abu Bakr odd, you know, those that were struggling now under the rulership of Omar Abdullah hottub. Imagine young kids used to walk into measure the number we measured the number we and they would be gold and silver stacked up in the corner, the crowns the crowns of the kings, and the you know, and the rulers of Persia and Rome, the crowns used to be in the masjid and the little children, the little kids of the Sahaba used to kick the crowns around, playing with it in Medina, in measure the nabawi money started coming in. When the Sahaba seen the money, they used to smile and rejoice. And oh, my job is to cry. Suffice to tell him Yeah, ameerul momineen rejoice rather these are good
times. Good times have come our way.
Look, look, look my brother's one line. It is unfortunate. Deep down let's be honest, deep deep, deep down your measuring stick and my measuring stick is not Rasul Allah and his companions.
One more he it's not I take an oath by Allah. It's not.
The Sahaba seen this. They said, Oh, these are good times. Rejoice. What did he used to say? He's to say to them, I asked you by Allah, am I more worthy than Rasul Allah and Abubakar to have this? Answer the question, am I yes or no?
Look at the deep understanding loop. Am I more worthy? Today? You and I when money comes away, en la la la, my mother made out for me in Laila.
And when Allah withholds money,
what happens my brother's be real be real.
Today we measure our last love based on money.
Tell me what car you drive I'll tell you how much Allah loves you.
Tell me how many bedrooms you have in your house. I tell you where you stand with a law.
we measure our laws love based on dunya
based on dunya today, we see big mosques we smile
they went to the heat
almost went to war with the Sahaba he almost went to war with the sahaabah because all they wanted was to put some paint on the walls he wouldn't accept
today when they give me tours
and you know chef and the chandelier came from Turkey
the chandelier came from Turkey. Chef it's fine please It's fine. Yeah.
The chandelier came from Turkey Mashallah one brother he donated the carpet it was hand woven and what we love this world we love this dunya we love these materials
went to war with us they had to beg the man not not just some paint on the wall he refused he says this is a distraction This is a footnote we're not evil this rubbish.
We measure our lost love based on how much tabouli Allah gives you bro.
This is this is this is
so when money started coming in, understand look depth depth for like my brother's depth.
When money started rolling in and the side you know, was like he ruled with an iron fist. The sahaabah were choking, choking. The man doesn't let us do anything. He doesn't let us breathe. We can't do this. We can't do that. We can't you know, enjoy some luxuries he. So one day he was sahaabah they came in they gathered and they came to his to his daughter and the other wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look even the Sahaba they knew they knew. They said look if any one of us does speak to Mr. Baba about this stuff, Habibi. He'll chop your head and he won't lose a moment of sleep. So look how they planned and plotted. They said we'll send his daughter
hafsa, who's the wife of Rasulullah he's going to be extremely patient with her, you know what I mean? And we'll send Ayesha the, you know, the boat of Abu Bakr Ando again, the wife of us, so, you know, I sent them to
telling me Ania Mira, Relax, man, relax.
Give us something. We're struggling.
Actually, one more day they weren't even asking for themselves. They were asking about him. They were telling him you just eat something but it's something you're walking around with a folk with, with 1416 patches on it. Yum, yum, even movement in the you know, times are not like they used to be with rasulillah things are good. Money is coming. DOMA is growing, things are prosperous. So they came worried and stressed who's gonna told this man who's gonna speak to him and tell him about these things. So they sent the you know, said I sent the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then when they go them, as soon as he walked in, and they opened the topic, he says to
them, I asked you by Allah who pushed you towards this? He pushed you towards this. He knew he knew this is the heart of a believer. Anyway, cut a long story short, you know what he says to them?
You know what he says to his daughter, what he says?
He says to them, I asked you by Allah.
I asked him, You are the closest of people to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, am I doing anything more or less than what he did?
They said no.
He said to them look, My Habib and my companion have left me.
Let me do as they did so I can catch them and be with them.
Let me do as they let me be with them.
men of understanding some of this man up the law, the men imagine nicknamed Majnoon asuna why what you know, you don't want to you know what's so shallow of us, my brothers. Some of us of course, we never say this on our tongues, because we always like to act like we love and we respect the Sahaba Habibi when you love. Let me tell you something, you know what it means to love? Who knows? You know what it means to love, to love is to obey. That's love.
When you love you obey.
When Michael Jackson used to slick his hair, and wear a black leather jacket, and do some of the most ridiculous dance moves, and 1000s of kids used to imitate him all over the world. None of us lost a moment of sleep. We still look at it in smaller sizes. They love the man you know, they love the man. True Love is to look, to imitate, to act, to walk, to talk, to dress, to think, to live to love.
But we love the theory of Rasool Allah not the practice of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. That's the truth.
He's the walking imagine,
just because I don't want to stress on this point. Imagine he was walking One day, he was riding on an animal and he had a companion with him. So they're walking and then Abdullah Brahma for no reason whatsoever. he ducked.
So the Sahabi that was with him, you know, it's like,
you know, when something's uncalled for
system of the law, why did you duck? For sake of understanding, imagine you and I were walking out of the masjid.
And then as we were walking, all of a sudden I jump out of the way. So you look around.
Why did you jump? So the Sahabi asks him, he says to me, Abdullah, why did you duck? He says, I was with rasulillah. When I was a young boy.
I was with him when I was a young boy.
And he was riding on his animal when he got to this place. There used to be a tree right here,
where there used to be a branch. So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he ducked so the branch wouldn't hit his head. He said, I didn't want to be in the same place that Rasulullah was, and not do the same action that he did. Even though the tree was long gone.
The tree was long gone.
But they knew they understood that they agenda that therefore those that their success is to follow this mentor the last absolute moment of their lives.
And I swear by online my brothers if in your heart you love or you believe that anything other than what he did and what he brought
so who understood the my brothers, then
because I don't have much time.
My brothers I want to draw your attention to something.
When you look at your life and you look at their lives,
you see a very big gap
Forgive me my brothers but I look at my life. And I look at the lives of the people around me.
And I can't help but feel like we
were in cruise control.
We've accepted that Dean is what it is
that the Amal is the Amal that we know and that we see. And deep down in our hearts we have accepted that this is Dean and this is complete Dean.
Not only this, but deep down in our hearts we have accepted that what I'm doing is more than enough to get me where I need to be.
Because the truth is my brother's Not a single man in this room today has ever lost sleep.
Over his lack of armel with
deep down my brothers in places we never speak about on our tongues. You know my brothers we've become master liars masters.
We have become professional actors.
But guess what, on the Day of Resurrection, your tongue will not move an inch
of law says the limbs on the bodies will speak on that day.
Deep down my brothers we have accepted the life that we're living. Not only that, we have accepted that deep down in our hearts that I am going to Jenna, regardless.
Look, the truth is, why are you not the man? You should be? Why are you not the person you want to be? because deep down in your hearts again in places we don't speak about. We have yaqeen that I'm going to gentlemen.
to convince myself of this false Yaki in that I have, we've become rula in the matters
Chef doesn't allow say in the Quran
What a mess it was
a long, long, long long mama
we love movies my brothers
will love drama.
We love it
I was in the harem
with all my love or my hair and all my other band My respect to the harem Have you heard the
In all Arabic This word does not exist anyway.
But we love the drama
and tears fall down our faces a lot. Then
we get caught in the emotion in the voice in the singing in the in the glitter and the glamour
the things that really matter
we love drama
doesn't last say in the N word met he was he had a share. Why are you Why are you always so negative? of lice forgiving, Allah is merciful. Allah every chapter in the court of law starts at with Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Allah is the most compassionate Allah is the most most and we love these. We love these stories. We love this drama. We love these verses. One line we will take a verse with no understanding of what it's for. Why did Allah send that as long as it suits me? As long as it's appealing? As long as I can somehow use it to justify the evil life that I'm living? What money you will take it and you will run for miles with it. Share doesn't doesn't say in the
sahadi It's a Sahih Hadith that mancala La ilaha illAllah de halaal Jana, whoever says La ilaha illa Allah will enter Jannah Oh la la la la la we love it.
So like I said in the beginning, who understood who understood the in the best
did the Sahaba ever ever ever day speak like you when I speak
explained to me my brother's one like just just malice Well, I again I'm not here to insult anyone what law he or not.
Why is it that when you look at their lives and you look at the life of the Prophet salado, why is it that they were worried and they were stressed and they were concerned? And you and I we are not stressed? We're not worried and we're not concerned?
Why is it that they were doubtful? Why is it that they would always question themselves that will Allah except me, yet you and I deep down in our hearts deep down, have fully in that ongoing not only the agenda, but for those of
you look at our lives were in cruise control.
No one is stressed. No one is worried. No one is pushing. No, no one is losing sleep at night. No, no, no, no, no, no. Relax.
who understood the in better me or him?
who understood these areas of the core and better me or them?
Why is it they were stressed and I'm not stressed? Why is that they were worried. I'm not worried. Why?
One of two options, one of two options. Either they misunderstood them and I understood it correctly.
Or they understood and we misunderstood.
One or the other. It can be both very worried and stressed and I'm relaxed. They would push push, push, worry, worry, Stress Stress and I'm in cruise control. Either they misunderstood Allah and his core enemies and the
understood that they misunderstood the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and you will know all of a sudden we are somehow the blessed, gifted chosen people we understood the incorrectly or it's the other way around.
Which one don't answer you answer between you and yourself
your job and my job my brothers please understand with depth, my job and your job is not to be like the Muslims around you.
The old Sati in the masjid or the old or the Imam all the all the current amount with all my love and respect for them. They are not the measuring stick.
They are not
rasulillah companions these were the men who are law says radi Allahu Allahu.
Allah was pleased with them, and Lord chose them and law selected them. These were the men that our Lord chose. They understood them. These were the men who are more choice for his beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
you will know my brothers Forgive me like I said, I know this topic for some people. It's very you know, Brother, what are you talking about? It's Habibi, Look, don't attack me. I'm giving you the evidence. He told me from the evidence which what isn't sitting right with you? Why is that they were worried and stressed and we are not worried and stress. told me why.
A worker of the Allahu Allahu
Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu.
Where do you what like,
where do you stop?
Really? Where do you start?
isn't enough? Isn't it enough? That the Prophet said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and we know that it is prohibited to praise your brother in front of him. We know from the Hadith to praise Your brother is prohibited in front of his face. So he saw a lot of value selling one day in the masjid.
In the Sahih Hadith, he stood up sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he addressed the assembly. And he said to the Sahaba he said every single one of you that did me a favor, I paid back that favor in this dunya except for Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu. I physically cannot pay him back. Allah will pay him back on the Day of Judgment.
Alone pay him back. I cannot pay him back.
When the reconstruction of the measure to place his home Allahu alayhi wa sallam he ordered, every door of the masjid is to be closed except for the door of Abu Bakar that remains open.
When the Sahaba came when the Sahabi came asking him your rasulillah Who do you love the most? He said my Wi Fi Isha. So he says no your asuna law I mean from the men says okay then her father,
the only man that had the honor and the privilege of doing hegira with the Habib sama law while he was on them
you know what Abu Bakr says
and please my brothers will lie here I beg you Please open your hearts open your hearts because I feel that if we die in the state that we're in right now,
we are in a world to hurt
and understand the Sahaba will not like you and I in my brother's
Sahaba did not add salt and pepper to the converse Sahaba didn't know these tricks. So how about whatever was on the hearts and minds they spoke without adding any flavor, any drama any? Nothing? Nothing. Whatever came to them they spoke.
He says there are a lot on who you know what he says.
He says I wish I was a leaf on a tree
that an animal look at the description. Look at the picture he paints. He says I wish I was a leaf on a tree that an animal came be the leaf
Should the leaf swallowed the leaf, digested it.
Then defecated on the floor.
He says, I wish I was that, and not abubaker who has to stand in front of a lot and be held accountable for the life that he lives.
And you and I
were in what
we're in cruise control when
chef, I know suffered a lot. But you know, you know, hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah I've done has three times.
My son's a half his chef, just saying, you know, just saying,
you know, my father, he established this murshida outside of them.
He says, I wish I was that.
And not a worker who has to stand in front of a law and be held accountable. I asked you something abubaker didn't know that was what it was the akula she didn't know this was
one lawyer Makita attack. Maybe I've misunderstood what maybe, maybe someone has fooled me just explained to me. abubaker didn't know the verse
avakian didn't know that mancala La ilaha illAllah de la Jana
he made or no, maybe Abu Bakr didn't know, do you think do you believe? Is there any room in your mind or in your heart? That maybe Abu Bakr didn't know the verse or the ID?
Of course not. So why did he know? Yet he was still worried. And you and I were not worried?
Why are you so proud of your heart? Why are you so proud of the work that you did? Why are you so confident with the very little that we do?
These men who gave their lives
men whom the Prophet of Allah promised them Jenna, multiple times multiple times. Rasool Allah image Habibi does the Prophet of Allah Nita taken us rasulillah need to tell you one law he does he does the the Prophet of Allah types that your Abu Bakr you will be in Jannah he says the doors of Jenna will be not asking not Can you please the doors of Paradise we'll be begging you Abu Bakr to walk him through them.
That just explained to me why was he?
And you and I
I'm glad I just came back from lunch you love him?
A lot except you make the chef.
My burn I burn with frustration.
O'Meara de la tal and who among him the Prophet of Allah He says some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He says to me, Omar, if there was there isn't, he says but if there was to be a prophet after me, Omar, it would have been you.
Imagine a man
who makes misura masura with the Prophet de and he gave his opinion. The man makes Matura with Rasul Allah. A law brings down to confirm the opinion of Omar
promised Gemma multiple times.
One day he was walking in the streets of Medina.
And he he's the verses of Quran being read from a house.
Verse verses that spoke about the punishment of law
Sahaba said for 21 days he was bedridden, we had to visit him in 21 days, couldn't move from his bed.
When Allah says Fie me in the Quran, who is he talking to?
My brothers, unfortunately, the whole Quran from sootel family how to sue the nurse, the whole Quran, and I swear by Allah the whole Quran doesn't apply to me at all.
Again, again my brothers Don't, don't don't listen to this time that has been trained to live for so many years. Actions speak louder than words. The whole Quran from 30 happiness doesn't apply to me. It doesn't apply to my wife and it doesn't apply to my children.
When Allah speaks about the prophets, what are the stories of the prophets for you and I their bedtime stories for the kids? And then he built an ark and he put a pair of every animal in that please can you finish the story?
Maybe tomorrow inshallah. But the story of No, nothing complete disconnection. The story of Ibrahim complete disconnection, the story of Adam complete disconnection. I said Moosa all the stories of the prophets when Allah mentions a story but there's not speaking about us he's speaking about the Jews. When I was speaking about john Nunn brothers law speaking classes speaking about
every verse in the Quran doesn't apply to you when I when does the Quran apply to you when I
I can't wait I can't
we live in Disneyland my brother's
a lawyer I'm not joking. You might find this funny now but I swear by Allah when you stand in front of him on the day of Joe one law he you will not be laughing at all.
So you can find comfort now by looking to your left and looking to your right and thinking
you know, I'm doing what everyone else is doing. Guess what Habibi, him, him? Me. We're not the measuring stick.
We're not the measuring stick.
amagno hottub. He was a mirror meaning the golden years of Islam. The golden years of Islam was during the time of Omar Abdullah hottub. Then one day, imagine ameerul momineen. Leading the fudger Salah in measure the nabawi as he was leading the prayer, one of the munaf 18. One of the hippies actually, I think he was even a careful he was a complete disbeliever he comes in he steps out of the hot tub in the back with a dagger he had poisoned for two weeks.
Anyway, that's not my story. I might have been hot tub falls down, falls unconscious.
Then when he wakes up,
guess what was the first thing he asked?
He said did the people finish their pajamas?
They said to him yesterday. I mean, the prayer has been prayed. He says Alhamdulillah he said then who stabbed me.
They told him, he says Alhamdulillah he's not a Muslim.
They give him some milk. It starts coming out of his stomach. The Sahaba realized that once the stomach is punctured. He had hours left. Anyway, he makes a few requests. It's an interesting story. It's not my topic here tonight. But I want to draw you to the last moments.
last moments, he sends his son Abdullah to do some final errands. Do this and cover this and make sure in some depth and some distance some that now it's his last moments. How is it his final breath. He's sitting there laying down his head is on the lap of his some of the law. You know, the man who spoke about before Medusa on his lap was laying there on his head. Sorry, His head was laying there on his lap.
And just as he was breathing his last breaths, he says my son take my head off your lap and place it on the floor.
He says why my father?
He says because I'm praying to a law
that maybe if he sees me in the state of humiliation, maybe just maybe he might have mercy upon me and forgive my sins.
And you and I were in what
Check speak about gentlemen shall speak about coralayne shall speak about how forgiving Allah subhana wa Taala is share speaker
one of the greatest aroma of Sahaba
rather than the Japan was a companion whom the Prophet of Allah imagine one day was in, in the sahadi. One day the Prophet of Allah, He came to my attorney general.
He says to me, Mr.
By a law,
I love you.
He's telling him he loves him.
Not your local chef.
Not your local chef, not the local Imam, not his grandfather.
Have you been law
Rasulullah is standing in front of more as
you know, it's enough to say I love you
know, he says,
boy, I love you,
buddy. I love you.
I love you
While the lift the old age
when was was dying on his deathbed. An old man,
one of the greatest orlimar of the Sahaba a man who died with the test certification of Rasul Allah and His love.
On his deathbed his last words, you know what he said?
He looks up into the skies, old man. feeble
He says you're a law. I live my whole life in fear of you.
Today, my brothers we don't feel alive anymore.
That's the truth.
That's the truth.
When you don't take your deen from the Prophet and his companions, you become extremists. Does the mercy of Allah exist? Yes. Is that there? Yes. Can you deny? No, but what's the measuring stick?
Not mine and your knifes not my house and your house.
Even allows mercy. If you take it away from his if he take it away from Rasul Allah and his companions, even the mercy of Allah will become your own destruction.
Deen is not based on knifes. Deen is not based on what you think and what I think the deen of Allah is based on Mohammed Salah La La wa sallam.
He says you're a law. I lived my whole life in fear of you.
And now you're law. I'm an old man.
And even if I wanted to do anything, you're a law.
What can I do? I can't even get out of the bin.
All my life I feed you you're alone. Now you're alone. Now you're alone. I'm hanging and I'm clinging on to newseum, I have mercy upon me
on his life in fi and then at the last moment when he physically can't do anything.

A law is not playing games.
Allah did not give you an idea the life that we have. So we can mesh a lot, go to school and have fun. And then after school, we go to university. And then there's a period of je Leah, you know that period that we all secretly, indirectly we turn a blind eye to Allah.
Chef, you got to change with the times, man, you know what I mean? You got to change with the times, you know. So, look at your life, one law, he look at our lives, all of my life, all of my youth, all of my efforts, all of my all of my worry and concern is to my daughter.
And I give a lot of my rubbish and my scraps.
He works 1314 hour shifts.
Like a Man, like a beast.
Chef, we have to show this before that we're hard working with slumps. This is our bow.
He's on the battlefield.
Then when he comes into the machine, Chef Bring me a chair. I have a bad back, you know?
If the Imam does the major sin
of taking a few minutes longer than necessary. Sure, Who does he think he is? Does he think he's in the army? Does he think he's in Medina? Does he think is in Mecca? Doesn't he know that this state is a working state? Doesn't he know that people have worked tomorrow? doesn't think what what what? This is why people don't come to the masjid anymore share. The man's have lost touch. You give a man a microphone he doesn't get off.
We need to walk.
But if I was handing out money, just take your timer. We're not going anywhere sick. Chef you Chroma Dave. You take your timeshare. You take your time
look at your life my brother Where have you invested your life where
you're proud of the one or two hedges that you've done. You're boasting about the one or two three cameras that you've done in your life. Really, this is what you're confident about. This is what you're so convinced with. This is
this is what you're going to stand in front of a law with.
This is why you're in cruise control.
Where are our priorities my brother's
that you know why we've accepted that
because I'm doing what you're doing and you're doing what I'm doing so you'd be quiet and I'd be quiet and let's just give salons and smile.
He lives the whole 11 months of V 11 months of the E he's nowhere to be seen. Very little Dino low lm if he's even praying he's dumb as no Dino *er, no effort, he'll exhaust his body his finger is so his whole life is for dunya dunya nuff snuffs How are How are ya children?
But inshallah, in May we're going formula chef, you keep us in your da.
And of course, you're not saying anything because you're doing Amara the month after him.
And we have the audacity to say that I can't wait to see the Sahaba on the day of Judge Habibi. Do you think the Sahaba wanna borrow of you? And I? Is that what you think Johnny?
One lie if I was also happy if of course I'm not. If I was also happy and I seen any one of us in general, one lawyer I would argue with Allah
that injustice was done towards me.
You know, we were in a hood not that long ago we were in
you know Hamza was killed in the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam was killed and not just killed, mutilated, mutilated.
And you know, every time we go out we share the same stories with the brothers and try to create this smooth and create this thing. You know, we're live but I always think to myself.
Hamza, his nose was chopped off. His ears were chopped off his stomach was ripped open. his liver was ripped out him took a bite from his liver. She chewed that spirit on the floor
and complete destruction.
Sahaba said when the Prophet of Allah seen his uncle Hamza, we never seen him cry. Like he cried when he seen his uncle Hamza.
And we know that the way you die is the way you're resurrected yes or no.
So Hamza definitely will be resurrected with blood still coming out of his wounds. And trust me, trust me, trust me. Allah doesn't need to ask him Hamza, what did you do for my Deen? Have you been looking at his face? That's all you have to do is look at it. No nose. No, his stomach is ripped open. Live. I was spit on the floor. really ready to ask. But when my the thought man is just food for thought, you know, I always think imagine, imagine, for whatever reason, you know how we dream. Like, you know how you and I, when we watch a movie, we always imagine being the hero. We always imagine winning the girl in the end. We always imagine you know, driving the car, jumping over the
bridge before it explodes. You know, like we we love it. Yeah. So just
you happen to just bump into him, or the L'Atalante on the Day of Judgment.
And then he asks who you
Who are you?
And if you're brave enough to tell him who you are.
But like I always think if he was to ask me, what did you do for the deen of Allah? What are you gonna save?
Before he died, Sal, Allahu Allah. Do I have time or not? You people falling asleep? Yes, no, he too shy to answer.
Me I'm gonna wrap up.
Before he died, so Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he walks into the back here to the cemetery that's next to his machine.
And please, will lie again. My brothers listen with your heart, listen with your hearts. So he walks into the backyard sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, sometimes before someone dies, especially if you're close to that person, maybe you don't realize it then and there. But after the death, you start reliving the few days before they died.
And then you pick up on signs, you know, like, it's almost like he knew he was leaving, you know.
So he sallallahu wasallam he walks into the backyard, he used to walk into the backyard, this was a weekly thing for him.
But he walked into the backyard, the Sahaba walking with Him Sahaja
he makes up for the dead.
And then interestingly, he turns around to the Sahaba and he says,
he says I longed to see my brothers.
So for Sahaba you know they look around and I say a prophet of Allah
unto your brothers
unto your brothers
so he says to them No, you are not my brother's You are my companions.
Now let me stop here because
I openly confessed that I'm a fruit loop openly confess, few screws loose here. Sometimes I'll be driving in my car, I speak to the steering room.
Whenever I hear a diff like this, just every ounce of my body just questions, questions. I have questions. That imagine imagine again, let's just imagine you imagine your Sahabi standing there on that day, men who it was common language amongst them, Fidel
rasulillah, we will happily sacrifice our mothers and our fathers just for your pleasure. One time it's a week it's a week narration but one time the Prophet of Allah He said to us a hobby he says to him bring me the head of your father sakasa hobby Not a single question. Not why when How are you sure is this why is this your own personal opinion? Nothing. He says to bring me the head of your father sakasa hobby jumps up with drew his sword and ran out of the back of the machine. The profit of the law system. Whoa, whoa, whoa, come back. Come back. I was only kidding. I was only testing your
common common scenario for the Sahaba. Men who Habib if he made to do they collected the water. If he spread, it never reached the floor.
So now all of a sudden, they're standing there. They're seeing signs from him. Signs of departure signs that was very hard for them to swallow. Now he says I longed to see my brothers. And then they said, aren't we your brother's? He says No, you're not. You're my companions. If I was so happy on that day, what do you mean I'm not your brother?
What do you mean?
All these sacrifices I've made, and you're telling me I'm a companion. So if I asked if we're not your brothers, then who are your brothers, your asuma, who?
He says my brothers are those that will come up to me.
They will come after me. They will believe in me that they've never seen me with their eyes.
And one of them would give up his wife and his family, just to lay his eyes on me. I long I long I long to see my brothers.
If I was a Sahabi on that day,
let me ask you, do you do you prefer to be the Companion of the prophet or his brother?
can you compare a companion to a brother.
So to prove this is my personal theory. This is not Dean. I'm not Ireland that's making tafsir I'm just Ajay feeding my own knifes to prove my theory that they were just as upset as I would have been. They said and how when you recognize these brothers of yours, you've never seen them and they've never seen you. How
you know us by name and by face. We fought with you.
We walked with you. We talked with you. We ate with you. We we bled with you we cried with you. How will you recognize them? They've never seen you and you've never seen him? He says I will recognize them like you recognize your horse. Imagine look at the analogy he gave. He says if one of you had a black horse that had a white face and white feet and you lost this horse amongst a group of pure black horses, would you not be able to distinguish which horses yours? They said yes sir. rasulillah els is the only one with the white face in the white face. He said I will recognize my brothers like you recognize your horse for the markings of their will will be shining light on the Day of
so let's come back to Hamza now Hamza is holding his stomach and he's bleeding. He's bumping into you is asking you number one Who are you? then number two, he says I say you must be one of the brothers of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he Yo Yo Yo I'm one of the brothers. If if he was to ask What have you done for the deen of Allah? What will you say?
You and I were in cruise control.
Not only in cruise control.
One law he not only in cruise control.
Not only do you have yaqeen
Yaki in that you're going to Jana Amar says in the Quran but again the whole Quran doesn't apply to me. Yeah, Allah speaking about others. Allah says who ever feels safe from the punishment of Allah. They are the losers.
But some extreme share Quran.
Whoever feels safe, whoever feels protected from the punishment of law says they are the losers.

Sam been more either was Muslim for seven years.
From the day he accepted Islam to the day that he died, he was Muslim for seven years only.
Yet sad been more after seven years of Islam when he died in the Sahih Hadith. The prophet of a law said it doesn't lemo Dr. Rahman. He said the throne of Allah shook. When sad been more of a Muslim only for seven years.
We've been Muslim all our lives.
We've been Muslim all our lives. Muslims are dying, not in the 1000s but in the millions. Nevermind the throne of a law. I challenged the tree outside to shake
Must have been all male by at the age of 17 years old. He died in the Battle of
17 years old. When the Prophet of Allah said Musab been alive, he must have been
14 1415 years of age. Rasul Allah sent one going 15 years of age, he sent him to Medina one year before the migration, he sent him their Musab bin homemade in one year.
There was not a single house in Medina, except it had a Muslim in it.
We've been in this country for centuries.
We've been in this country for centuries, I met people who said to me, their great grandfather was born here.
Look around you.
Look at the millions of non Muslims around you.

And forgive me while he my intention is not to be racist. I'm not. I drive around in the streets of South Africa and I see
the native men is it the black men
and I look at their condition.
And I say in the law, we're in a lie and I do what a lawyer will do with us on the Day of Resurrection when they stand in front of Allah and speak man.
My time is up.
My brothers Wake up.
Stop living this fantasy.
Understand that the measuring stick is Rasul Allah and his companions. Allah is not playing games with us my brother's
