My dear respected brothers
is not entertainment
is not something that
I get myself into a comfortable position
and as long as I fit in with the crowd
and Mashallah all the local machines and the local southies and the local Imams and the most is very likely man so therefore I mean a nice comfortable position and this is Dean up until the day I die.
This is not how it works my brothers
because when you die you're mostly one be there for you
know when your shares know when to know when your Eman know will the community be there for you.
There is an individual journey of every single one of us trying to reach the highest possible position that we can with Allah subhanho wa Taala
and then my brothers is not supposed to be easy.
I mean, I know we say Deen is easy that's kindergarten language you know someone comes off the street he's far from being we say these encouraging you know these words of encouragement. Aberdeen is easy, so can come come. But the truth is, this is not easy. There is a continuous struggling to the day that you die, because the price and the rewards have been
for a little shack, actually, I can't use the word check in South Africa, it has a different meaning.
But for a little home in South Africa, you will work years of your life to pay off.
And then by the time you finished it's due for renovations anyway.
But for Dean we expect we're gonna walk straight into agenda and be with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just like that.
Look, time is of the essence let me not waste time.
You see my brothers, there's two aspects of the there's the physical Mashallah you like maybe I could oil through a tea like a
nice white garment. Nice cap. We all walk into the machine. We put on this facade, this act that was so noble and religious.
You see, that's one aspect of
this the worship of Allah through a bear that Judo the American physical sense.
But then there's something far more important. And that's the condition of the heart.
And everything you do in Amell is supposed to purify the heart because Allah testifies in the court and says, On that day, speaking about the Day of Judgment, nothing will benefit the human being, not his world, not with children
at a law
except the one that comes to Allah with the pure, clean, sound heart.
You see, my brothers, we love the actions of the Ling's because, forgive me, you know, we've become a very sensitive community. Now, people are very quick to get upset.
So let me speak about myself so that I don't insult anyone. You see, I become a professional liar.
See, it's all this it's all an act.
This is where real Dean comes. And I'll put you in situations every now and then
to show exactly when your real deal is.
You see my brothers we've been ordered by Allah and His Prophet, to forgive.
And all that directly direct from Allah and the order of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to forgive.
No matter what the coin may be.
A true believer always forgives.
The Prophet of Allah, He says, Allahu alayhi wa sallam Have mercy amongst one another.
So the one in the heavens can have mercy upon us.
Show mercy and compassion towards one another. So in the order of
the Prophet of Allah says he does not show mercy will not be shown mercy
and he who shows compassion and mercy of law will show him mercy and compassion. He said my brothers You and I, we think that the topic of forgiveness It's an option it's a privilege that I have that when I want if I want how I want based on the way I'm feeling I will choose whether or not I want to forgive the person that
doesn't work like that.
Because you and I are not free men we are slaves of law.
You see many of us we love the topic of forgiveness. It's such a nice it gives me a tingling feeling you know?
because anyone and everyone must forgive me but God forbid I should ever have to forgive anyone.
You see this this is easy bro.
This is easy bro.
Any cafe can walk into a shop and buy the stuff
we love to hang on to these
And please when you listen to the hood bear he said many of us were so sick. That after the hook by get people that come to Brother Allah Mashallah, amazingly
I wish my uncle was he he really needed to hear these words, man.
I wish my father was the man so Pamela, it's like you were living in my life and you spoke everything about him.
Again, this is not for me, this is for everyone else.
Every area in the Quran. every verse in the Quran does not apply to me except when Allah speaks about Rama and mercy.
Have you noticed
with the Quran
is not a single verse applies to me, not one Allah speaks about Jonathan not only speaks about the Buddha,
he speaks about his work and his punishment
for everyone else except me when
we become professional liars.
Prophet is to forgive
because Allah wants to see has my heart submitted or not
brothers that was born from the same room, please don't record my brother, please, please don't want to be recording.
Brothers that were born from the same room
that lived in the same house that from the same place, slept in the same bed.
Now they don't speak to one another and they haven't spoken to one another.
And both of them have big beads. And this chiller and that Sheila and front row of the machine.
But I haven't spoken to my brother in these.
You see, I don't have time. Forgiveness is not an option. Those that don't forgive. It's not just about good rewards and bad rewards. If you don't forgive me.
I swear by Allah. It's a question of, it's a question of your faith.
And trust me I will come to it at the end. Trust me.
When I want to know No, no, no. A true believer forgives all the time, no matter what. No matter what crime. No matter what pain was inflicted on me. We forgive what because the person is worthy.
My goodness, not because his apology was nice and sweet, irrelevant
for the sake of Allah, which he gave me because I want a lot of Forgive me. It has nothing to do with the one that harmed me, but has everything to do with Allah subhanho wa Taala
brothers Blood Brothers, they don't speak today anymore
because of their inheritance, yeah, you know, when my father left some inheritance, there was a bit of a dispute. He promised me the car he promised me the house he promised me this that 77
uncles that don't speak Chinese that don't speak Chinese that don't speak to each other.
Mashallah chef, we just came back from Allah. Mashallah, me and my family.
We just came back from hombre.
And we stood,
stood in front of
you, that's one thing collide others, like yourself?
Have we solo?
We want to forgive us for a lifetime of sins, for a lifetime of shortcomings. For a lifetime of neglect fullness.
graphy. And an ease of this, that and the other is the use of stealing and lying and cheating. We weren't allowed to turn a blind guy. You can't turn a blind eye to the one that came out of the same room that she came out of man.
You see, shifts my wife. She doesn't like his wife. So it's just better that we stay apart, you know?
So now you let a woman get between you and your brother.
What do you want me to do?
I have kids,
with the kids how
to get between me and my brother.
See how I can replace
and kids happy people are getting kids in Xena.
But this guy,
if he goes,
we're gonna get another one from men.
Forgiveness is the owner of a lawn is profit.
You see my brothers.
We love the Sahaba I'm sure.
we elevate the Sahaba to such a level even though it's done with good intentions. I know it's done with good intentions. But we elevate the Sahaba to such levels. We make them angelic.
And forgive me to all the respect that because I know maybe now we're going to differ but that's fine.
The Sahaba were not as pretty as you and I painted.
They were real human beings. They had problems. They had shortcomings, they did things.
And sometimes when you don't paint that picture,
we put an artificial barrier between us and then
you see what made them special is not the fact that they did not commit See, no, they did make mistakes. But it's how they dealt with the mistakes that makes them the great men they are
time and time and time.
I want you to leave the story with me please.
You know, unfortunately, we can watch movies.
And I can always imagine myself being the hero
turning the car on saving the lady in the end and running before the house explodes and we always envision ourselves being the hero in the movie.
But never have we ever heard a hadith of Rasulullah and actually tried to absorb it, live it understand that. Take the sweetness and
we hear it like this nice much
Allah May Allah bless them.
After one of the battles Give me your undivided attention after one of the battles
there was booty of war.
So the Sahaba gathered and the heavy Matura as to help the beauty of who should be distributed.
So they gave their opinions, like we give our opinions.
So once the hubby gave his opinion, once a hobby, then a Buddha gave his opinion, I'm sure you've heard the name.
If you don't know above or
above what is
an Arab, Arab, Arab Arab, makes an Arab feel like is actually
to the bone.
So Buddha gave his opinion as to have a wolf should be distributed.
Then right that's the hemos bilello radi Allahu Allah
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, if you don't know, the background of
the land was a slave.
Not only a slave, they used to be grades of slaves, there was first, second and third. The land was an obsidian slave, a black man, and was a third grade slave.
Now, because of Islam, was given the privilege to even stand in front of a man like Abu Dhabi, and say his opinion
he says, I disagree with you. I think this is what we should do with the beauty of wall
now Forgive me because there's too much juice to just let it go.
Sometimes we sit in Matura
how many massages has been built simply because the outset he was refused in Matura or some trivial pathetic issue took place. So we left and now from the left we did our own ministry.
So above our
Jay Z is still very fresh.
So he says to be learning
he says even you You son of a black woman, even you will disagree with me.
So naturally was shattered.
So he picks himself up and he got strict on us to the loss.
Now let me stop.
If any one of us did this, especially the young boys, you know,
we say we follow the Sahaba. But the truth is we follow gangsters. We're closer to gangsters than what we are to Sahaba and that's even to the outside is to with all my love and respect.
Because only gangsters don't forgive.
But people of email always forgive.
began by leaving the gathering and going to law school of law in this day and age. What do we call this act?
Are you afraid to speak?
I don't care. Speak the truth. This act of leaving the gathering and going to complain to law school of law. What is this called?
You see you alone, but I'm not a snitch. thinking you're a man. No, no, no, no, we don't snitch Now have you done speech? rather what you do, you're gonna hold a grudge in your heart for the next 20 years and backbite and slender and wipe the floor with your with any chance an opportunity you get. But she's on stage Mashallah.
You are happy to break a family apart for you thinking that you're showing how much of a man you are.
I know family back home. cousins lay down. Two brothers. They kids. They never see each other ever in their lives and they live in the same city.
20 years of age.
I said How come you guys don't know each other.
They said our fathers stopped speaking before we were even born.
Nice big B that he prays in the machine.
So below goes to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says our Prophet of Allah, this is what?
You see I'm not telling you to snitch. what I'm telling you is if there's someone that can help your situation, why don't you go it's the number.
Now that we pick and choose what sooner we want in our lives, that's the truth.
So when the Prophet of Allah heard the news,
he became furious.
So he comes to the gathering grabs by the chest, I said,
You are a man that
is that was you and I
won't lie that's not what happened. Customer I swear by Allah asked this person asked this person you need to understand it's the way he said it and lo and behold, That's
rubbish in rubbish that comes out of our mouths.
he acknowledged his mistake.
Something many of us are not prepared to do
call it like it is right you did wrong.
You're not, you're still
you're still love them praise even 1400 years later. Does anyone not like I
still loved and admired. We still sing your praises.
Because you are a real man.
Not this fake rubbish you see.
So he acknowledges his mistake.
And then goes in search of BLM.
Many of us were prepared to acknowledge our mistake, but cheffy needs to come to me in Sharla we'll have some dinner. I don't really need to apologize. We'll have some dinner inshallah. And this is a sign of my apology. You
subulata goes in search of village,
finds village in the streets of Medina goes to the landlord, the L'Atalante who in front of everyone goes to the land, puts his head on the floor and says bye Elia. Bilal, I will not lift my head off the floor until you step on it with your foot and let it be known bill and he and now in Medina, which one of us is the honor? And which one of us today is that this one?
opportunity that many of us
an opportunity that many of us would love to have with the people that hurt us.
You see many of us we act like we forgiven But the truth is, we forgave because there's nothing I can do about it even if I wanted to. That's not forgiveness. That's just settling for not being able to do anything that's
done by being a coward with forgiveness of a law.
did he jump on his head?
Did he tell him
I told you I was in the right and
below gets down on his hands and knees and kisses her on the forehead.
I forgive you for the sake of a law finished done. dusted never to be spoken about again.
Imagine my brothers to forgive
regardless of the crime
regardless of the crime ever heard of I will dum dum.
Most of us haven't. Because even our love for the Sahaba is a love based on dounia
Why do we love our model?
Trust me it's not because he used to have permanent marks on his cheeks out of crying out of fear of alarm. Now that's not why we love him. Nor do we love him because of the permanent max on his shoulder from servicing the woman late at night while everyone was asleep. We love Bob because he was a big man because when the kuffaar used to hear his name they used to shaking their knees
was a very poor companion sitting in a gathering when the Prophet of Allah was asking for money. And imagine sitting there and all the Sahaba giving money, pledging and making donations. And I'm sitting there doesn't have $1 to his name, Allahu Allah, probably one of the people from absolutely nothing to his name, simply sitting there having conversation between him and feeling bad about himself.
But I have nothing to offer so secretly, secretly between him and
then the next day, when he walks into the machine
He says, Where is the man that made a pledge in secret with a lawyer yesterday?
feeling embarrassed thinking he's going to be exposed when people were giving children what what did I have to give you? The perfect ask again? Where is the man I'm ordering now that it became an honor now that it became an order? I'm feeling the pressure. He says it was I What did you pledge dum dum. I pledge that I sacrifice my art and my honor to the believers. From this day forward. Anyone that harms me anyone that takes my rights. Anyone that steps on my toes? I forgive him for the sake of Allah. I have no rights. He says London last night a log a law book Revelation. He accepted your pleasure.
Why? Why can't you people be like
this is easy, my brother.
Don't be fooled.
But this you know why we can't forgive.
Let's not leader. You know why we can't forgive?
What a big thing. something quite small.
It's called pride.
But you know who I am.
You know what family I belong to?
Who's he to speak from? But I'm a chef. He's a nobody. I'm a Mufti. he's a he's a charity.
I'm a father. He's a son. I'm a husband. She's a wife. They have to apologize to me, not me to them. Are you better than bill?
Are you better than me?
Tell me which one is it?
No, no, no. It's because of pride.
Let me tell you something about pride.
You see, when the Prophet spoke about all the major sins? Never did he say that there's no hope.
You could be a killer, a murderer, a rapist? The worst of the worst.
But never ever, ever did the Prophet of Allah say the words that he said. When he spoke about pride? He says to Lahore alayhi wa sallam, anyone with an atom's waste of pride? How much?
an atom's wait. He says, never mind. See, john, you'll never smell its fragrance.
So I said it's a question of amen didn't play.
The Prophet of Allah says in the Sahih Hadith, and I'm running out of time. The Prophet of Allah says in the ad, he says every Thursday, the actions that we did throughout the week, they gathered and they collected and they presented before a law.
He said, so I like to fast on Thursdays. So when my actions are, this is a profit speaking
he says so I like to fast on Thursdays. So when my actions are presented before a law maybe the fact I'm fasting will be a means of him forgiving me, my weekly this, my weekly shortcomings.
So he says every Thursday you your actions are gathered and presented before and the Hadith goes on to say and can and we'll forgive whomever he wants.
The same I love that you keep singing what Matthew was the akula, Shea and ally is most forgiving, Most Merciful and the Lord forgives all sins happy but trust me you don't know the mercy of a lot better than
them. So when the Prophet says
it means in perspective of all these
Yes, forgive whomever he wants, except those two people that don't speak to one another, regardless of who's in the right and who's in the wrong. Allah will not even look at the actions. So Habibi can go in Jamaica from now to the day you die and do Hajj every single year and for agarose in between them. And you can cry at the Blackstone on the door of the Kaaba, on top of the Kaaba on the well of whatever you want Habibi, so long as Allah sees in your heart, that you still don't speak to your brother, you still have beef with your brother, you still haven't forgiven everything you've done equals to a big fat zero in the eyes of Allah.
Allah, shall I tell you about the biggest
forgiveness my brothers.
Let it go, man.
We have enough problems in our community. Do you not agree?
Let It Go man.
You'd be the better man.
You'd be the better person.
Forgive not because they were the lower law.
But because I want a lot of evening and
this is the man my brothers.
This is the Islam that we never hear about.
Because it's hard on them
But you want levels.
This is levels.
Soften your heart, smile.
Don't be arrogant.
Every one of us have made mistakes.
We've become the best lawyers when it comes to our shortcomings.
That we are the worst of judges when it comes to the actions of others.
Anything. I have a nine year old daughter
anytime she does something wrong.
I don't know how she gets herself out of it.
You know, like I'll be in the zone. I'm focused. I want to discipline her. So I called her over. And I'm not smiling here because I don't want to you know,
she's going on.
What did you do? By the end of it?
I don't know how she plays games. But she gets out of it.
When it comes to ourselves, we get ourselves out of any any sticky situation. But when it comes to my brother, I backed him into the corner with no escape.
Don't let it go.
Let it go.
Please, I beg you.
restore your families
under conditions that don't come and look for other people. People tell me that my child I forgive.
But don't forget.
Check. Let me tell you.
If you have not forgotten,
you haven't forgiven to begin with.
It's very easy. I will end with this last statement.
I ask you something sincerely.
And this statement may disturb some.
But are you bigger than Allah?
And before you rush to answer the question, because we've been programmed to lie all of our lives.
I'm asking you are you bigger than Allah?
Allah says I forgive all sins.
Allah will even forgive.
If you make Toba and say Kalima,
and my brother who did something so many years ago, I still till this day can't forgive him.
we ask Allah subhanaw taala to soften our hearts to unite us and make us like the Sahaba and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
