Al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala the king, the master the Sustainer, the creator of the seven heavens in the earth and he said Peace and blessings upon his beloved sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
I'm going to try I'm going to try to not scream today. So just make go out for me
to give a
shout out tonight I actually wanted to do something a little bit different
I've already spoken for two nights about the gangster life and all this stuff and I'm sure you guys have voted for me one way or another you know at funerals and stuff like that. So tonight we wanted to sort of try something a little bit different right
the mic is titled which side that you want.
Everyone asked himself Which side are you on? On the surface everyone claims whether I'm on the lawn is prophesied claims that easy.
But actions speak louder than words. And the reality of things is that on the Day of Resurrection Allah Allah is not gonna look at your outside
what's gonna look at allows me to see the house
so my brothers You know, this title, which side of the fence are you on? Are you on the law side? Are you on something else?
are brothers let's get a few concrete things. To begin with foundation.
The Day of Resurrection there's only two sides on the Day of Resurrection there's two sides here and dunya there's many options there's many paths you can choose these choose that go ego there I don't like this guy I don't like this I don't like that. He's got many many options but other than resurrection, there's only two either you from those that are going to be successful or you are going to be from those that are watching those that fade to black and white on the Day of Resurrection. There's no green there's no shades of green
and that's the reality of that life. My brother's almost panel of Allah He created you and I for such a short time for purpose Allah subhanaw taala doesn't play games.
Passionate Allah Allah doesn't create things because he's bored
every single one of you that's being created there's a reason for this a purpose
must pantalla wasn't just bought and decided you know what? Let me fill up the gap here let me let me sort of place no no money even the word even the one that's in the soil. And last panel apparently created the for purpose. Alone never ever, never does not create anything just like that.
There's a reason for so we asked What's the reason? Yeah, what's the purpose of our existence? Why are you here? Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala create you alive?
is a by chance.
Do you think I'm here because you know one last 33 years ago my mom and dad got together and things happened and wow. Have you loved the fireworks?
Everything is predestined by Allah subhana wa Tada. Everything has already been redone and decreed. 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth.
This time, this place this location has already been redone. You know, sometimes when you see a murder, sometimes there's a murder or sometimes someone buys that he wasn't intended. I'm sure like you've seen like that there's always a case, wrong person wrong place wrong time. And you hear you know, like you hear the brother say supply an alarm and the wrong way up the bullet. However, you can't talk like that. You can't talk about the Indian you can't use these terms. There's no coincidence in Islam. Sometimes myocardial infarction If only I left the house a little bit earlier. If only I have you become
that bullet was written for that brother that accident was written for you.
Nothing on the face of the planet was going to change that.
So again, which side of the fence are you on? My brothers are less popular gives us formula foundation. You know, wherever you go, I'm starting to see people are struggling people don't know what to do anymore. How come I'm not happy in my life? How come I'm not finding happiness? How come? How come How come and we're trying everything.
We're trying everything will lie. We've tried every single path we ever found that
we haven't found on our brothers that are on big money, big money.
I'm telling you that they've got that much money, they could very easily give every person in this room and you still have enough money to live the rest of his life. A very comfortable life.
Women have a house
but he's not happy.
He's not happy, boy, how come What's going on?
What's going on?
You know, walk all over, share with the brothers, you know, especially these young girls than before, do the image that you see. Don't be fooled.
You know, sometimes you may see someone walk the street for that 1015 minutes Habibi. You don't know what happens in the hours behind that. You don't know what happens in the hours after that.
You see him there. He's got his nice hat on his nice watch. It's nice distance. But you don't know the reality of things.
How many times have I seen brothers is driving a car you even look at that.
Behind closed doors, the brother struggling, the brother struggling to pay off the payments.
He's about to lose his family over it, you know? So
he gives the formula
in place my brothers this talk is for everyone. This talk isn't just for our Latino discourse, the so called gangsta and Habibi every single person is popular when he mentions things in
this verse is only for these people. And this verse is only for those people know it's a common, it's a common message for everyone.
gives the formula listen to the words.
one amazing verse.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, you know, choose whatever path you want. This is the foundation This is the formula almost has you ever stays away from my remembered? Whoever chooses a life away from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam whoever chooses he and whoever stays away from my remembrance and stays away from my game he stays away from history. Anything to do with Islam? Well, none other than victory. Look at the promise. This is the promise of the law.
Sometimes people are amazed sometimes people are better than the Why is this happening to me? Yes, the last part Allah gave you the formula woman on victory for in Allahu wa Masha Allah
ammo promises you a miserable life.
What promises you a miserable life.
And you know what's unfortunate is today, you and I interpret a miserable life. Jani Wendy will interpret that I'm miserable when I don't have money. But I'm not married. So I'm miserable. But I don't have money. I'm miserable. That's not how you measure whether you're miserable or not.
Because like I mentioned before, there are those that have all of these things and it's still miserable.
contentment is happiness.
Even in English, you know what they say? They say happiness is not how much you
know why this statement I make even more Muslims understand.
Happiness is not how much you have. Happiness is how much you can live without.
That's true happiness. So how much you have?
For all that everything is happy.
For all that everything is happy.
Look at the example of Rome. You know, I've been saying this over the last few days for the brothers, who maybe will lie, let me tell you the truth. Anyone that chooses the path of Rome, has no doubt is going to have the ending of Rome.
It doesn't matter whether you're Muslim or non Muslim, you choose the path of Rome, I have no doubt in your mind, you're gonna have the ending of Ron
ever stays away from my deal and stays away from my remembrance, for him is a miserable life. So ask yourself, Am I miserable? If you feel like you're miserable, then go to the formula.
Go to the formula.
My brothers on the Day of Resurrection, this this you know,
sometimes we speak about hope so much.
We tend to abuse the topic. Sometimes we speak about hope so much that brothers tend to forget how serious the punishment is.
My brother's almost not playing games.
Please understand, laws not playing games. facts, facts. Allah. Allah takes an oath that the hour is something severe
judgment. He says it's something severe.
The lie is not a joke.
The Day of Resurrection is not a joke.
Learning from Quran and Sunnah. That day is 50,000 years long, 50,000 years.
On that day, the sun will be a mile above you in a mile above you in
a mosque. Allah He describes that day. You know, sometimes it amazes me when it amazes me. People speak so much about hope that they forget about the fear of alone, Habib if you become an extremist in anything end up destroying yourself.
Wherever you go, you're not everyone always tells me that you know what that look.
I say yes for him, but you need to put things in perspective.
You can pick and choose what you want out of the deen and then claim walk on what is and what isn't.
You have to put things in perspective.
And this is the problem when we look at our Deen through a through a keyhole we end up causing harm to ourselves. Everyone interprets the religion to what he you know to what his wings and his visor have got brothers that brothers that so drugs young brothers, they sell drugs. And you know how you justifies It is amazing, big brother, man.
And he genuinely believes that that's his
brother last month Allah determine the risk of every single person. Wow, man round of applause for this guy.
Dean, it's not what you and I think it is.
Dean is always held the Prophet and his companions, hell did they understand? And this is what we want another tonight? How did the Prophet of Allah and His Sahaba How did these people how did they understand them? Because these guys they, they did everything, and they had the mercy of Allah and Allah declares in Quran that he's pleased with them, and that they pleased with him. And that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was promised and Mohamed Mahmoud yet when you look at their life, when you look at their everyday life, they were worried that they were concerned.
You unlike today, you do nothing. We do nothing.
We do nothing. And everyone's walking around with them. Let's be honest, deep down in the depths of your heart. Don't you believe that you're going to paradise? Really? honestly don't you deep down in your heart But
where did you get that phone? It's my brother sister in law. Okay, you probably haven't heard the Hadith it's mongkol Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah.
Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah.
Allah. So the brother takes this hadith and he runs with it.
But this Hadith, even though if you don't put this hadith in the right perspective, this habit will destroy
Allah Allah says what?
My Mercy encompasses
amazing program can you argue with it? So the brother takes the ethics out of context and he runs with it? I tell you brother that very if you take it the way it is, and you run with it one way it will destroy you
from thinking what am I going on about? again please build these concepts in your mind being is not according to me new dean is not according to all you know what what do the boys in the area think about Dean? Dean is not according to you know what? What do the dairies allometric, Habibi Dean is what what did the Prophet of Allah and his companions do? How did these people understanding? How did these people live their lives? That's been
anything more than the Prophet of Allah. You're an extremist. But the opposite is true. Anything less than the Prophet of Allah, Habibi, also an extremist.
Deen is always but our problem is we look at the influence.
And you know what the problem is with the cable.
I'm going to give you a scenario, a brother, he looks through a keyhole. And all he sees. And please imagine this. So the brother looks through a keyhole. And he sees a young kid. He can't see very clearly, it's, it's just the keyhole. Right? And that's what you do when you take one Hadith out of hundreds and 1000s of Hadith. And a whole Sierra and a whole crew and and a whole life. When you take one a different side. This is the interpretation of it. This is the danger that you do. So the brother looks through the keyhole, he can see very well it's very back. He says that with his eyes. So it's a higher end, what he's actually looking at is true. And that's what we do. Although the
Hadith is authentic, but because you're looking through the chaos of the brother sees a little kid can see very key. He sees a little kid. He's laying on a bench. And it seems to be like he's cut up and he's bleeding.
And then he sees a grown man with the life and policies brand is interpreted what the kids in danger. There's a man in there, he has a mind. It's a Hey, I've seen it with my own eyes. So his brain interprets the kids in danger. You need to break the goal down and running. So the brother of course he means well, of course we all mean well. Have you desire. So the promise smashes the door and runs it but well when the door is smashed open and the other views a lot bigger. Wow. Wow. How
The kid that he thought was dying,
was actually a kid that was sick.
And the man that he thought was a murderer was actually above
and that life he was performing surgery.
So while he was on the outside the loop what you look back, the man was killing the kid. But when the door opened up,
the man was actually trying to save the life.
So we need to understand, we need to understand the Day of Resurrection is not a joke.
Life is real.
Life is real. It's not a joke. I must,
I must, my family says and what Allah Allah says Fie me. Allah says fini.
Allah says no, I warn you against myself.
For almost anyone that feels safe from the punishment from the planet, or anyone that feels safe from the planet of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then surely These are from the losers?
To be just be honest with you, are you concerned?
Are you really worried?
Do you live a life of someone that's genuinely scared and concerned about is
the one who was promised paradise again and again. He was promised paradise again and again. And he was always worried and afraid. How am I going to stand before a loss?
What are we thinking soon? Why didn't Abu Bakar know the Hadith mankad Allah Allah Allah Allah? Didn't he know
Either you got a rumble, I got it wrong.
Because I'm living my life. Everyone's in cruise control.
But Abu Bakar was worried and scared.
Imagine the man who's the Prophet of Allah, He says, if there was going to be a prophet after me, it was going to be you. The Prophet of Allah, He promises on my agenda many times, many, many times.
imagine the man was stabbed. He was stabbed while he was leading fudger Salah, if we look at the honor, he was admitted what meaning the best use of Islam or during the ruling of Amara. In our history, it's known as the golden geese. So watch these promised paradise many times, many times you would make a statement along with send down for an and confirm the opinion of our model.
Along with confirm the opinion
amantani came to the prophet and he said this alcohol businessman is not sitting right with me. Allah brings them for an alcohol.
He came to the Prophet of Allah, this is a prophet of Allah, this, this idea of our women walking around showing themselves it's not sitting right with me. Women should be covered for an example and confirming.
So he was admitted meaning the best use of his when he was leading the budget Salah in the measure of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Then he gets fed the boy emotionally
by this believer, the man steps out of the hopper falls down, has the companions realized the man is dying.
Imagine why it's amazing. So his son of the law, he's sitting there and he puts his father's hits a pajama top. He puts His head on his lap,
natural father and sandblast moments
of realizing colossal
assists the son of the laces. Take my head off your lap and lay it on the floor put it down on the floor.
affirms he says take my head off your lead and put her on the floor. This is one my father This is because I'm hoping maybe just maybe if a mother sees me in despite of humiliation, maybe just maybe your mom might have mercy on
you and we're cruising around in cruise control.
Why? Because hamdulillah God has
handler last year I was at a fundraising dinner and a lot
of these people a lot of fighting per annum please do the million dollar worried in cars.
The balance. Your wife is real. My brother was not playing games with us.
So now we need to speak about the other side.
We've spent the last two nights you know speaking about this life or my life and
keeping this in mind.
Alvin is so great
that no matter what you've done in your life,
Allah subhanho wa Taala has kept the door of repentance and
look out breakdown.
That no matter what you've done in your life, my brother, no matter how much how long you've committed, no matter how much wrongs you've done in your life, the goal for repentance is always open and it will remain open until the outcomes
but the question is who's ready to walk through that door?
Who's ready to take that path of
Allah subhanaw taala has kept that door open.
No matter what sins you've done, no matter how much harm you've done, that change that you're seeking. You want happiness my brother, do you want to be successful in this world? You want happiness in this life? My brother in law you know, I'm not taking this out of my own pocket Habibi. There is no other path in the way of us in almost all of us. Look, just look, look, I've tried every avenue, every path they've tried, have they found that
they found the happiness level in terms of hearing celebrities, celebrities.
These people that aren't Muslims, women and cars and houses and money and fame and status Habibi, everything that you and I, let's be real, you and I, we're giving each other over these things. We're killing each other over these things. And the most powerful is given it to them in abundance, almost giving it to them in abundance.
So happy now Canada dunya dunya ba, ba ba, ba ba Ba, Ma sakata Foreign Minister Batman.
You know, the prophet of Allah, He says this world and everything in it, if it doesn't, but if this world equal in the eyes of a more equal in the eyes of the will of a mosquito.
The Prophet Allah says Allah would not have had given a single calf with a sip of water to drink.
This woman each employee means nothing to unlock.
adonia switch the movement of agenda to look carefully at
the profit of this world. This world it's a prison for a believer it's a prison and its agenda for the disbeliever Which side are you on? Are
we killing each other? Why? Because we want to make this place our agenda, Habibi. This is not your agenda. This is their agenda. This is not our agenda.
imagined like we sold our dinner, we sold this lamb. And we've sold everything that's valuable to try and make this place your agenda. happy that you know that soon, you're gonna grow soon, you're gonna die soon, you're gonna leave,
yet bound later.
Three things that follow the dead man to the grave with his family and his wife, and he's Amen.
For your jasna anyway, at the profit on laces.
It says two things come back and only one thing is left with you there.
You know, I was saying to the brothers that I think maybe about two, three weeks ago, I buried my grandfather about two three weeks ago.
from what the family could agree on
the left, so we so we all agreed the minimum that the family could agree on was he was 105 years old.
You know, because the ones that came years ago, they used to change the paperwork, sets. You know, my grandma reckons it was all done this guy. So we're all trying to measure off landmarks, you know,
105 years old. My grandfather was a very wealthy person, not a millionaire, but he was wealthy.
These are the facts. You know, these are the facts. I'm sharing my own examples. So no one gets offended. You know, these are the facts. You probably will see it again and again and again. And every one of us thinks Why not me? I'm going to be different. I mean,
a law system doesn't change. So my grandfather 105 years of age, right. quite young White Wolf. My
my grandfather was old school mentality. So he's the trust no one
Trust no one is to save his money in cash and put it in. He will
even put in the banks because
banks might route me. So he's this, save up his money, put it into boxes and hide these boxes. But he wouldn't even tell his kids
until eventually he reached an age where he had dementia lost his marbles. And no one knew where the money's you guys came he has no idea I asked the kids no idea that I asked you sincerely. What use was that money? hated and benefit? No. Did his kids benefit?
People working so hard? Well, I know people they work so hard so hard so hard. Some some people work seven days a week, 12 hours a day no one for his team. No plan for his Salah is everything.
No, brother, I need to buy a house I can set up my kids for the future.
Really was not asking this of you, man.
How many people do you know who when they died, they left their house as an inheritance for the kids. And that house that they live that was supposed to you know, give their kids a headstart. It ended up destroying the world I ended up destroying the family.
I know brothers that haven't spoken in 20 years, brothers that haven't spoken in 20 years. Why? Because of you know because of the house and the inheritance issue.
This What is this really a while so my life
This one is not for you. And I this one my brother will test you for a short time. For
most of you now you're knocking on the doors of 30. So let's say you live the next hour gives you like 260 habibie already halfway. What have you done in your life?
Sincerely, what have you done in your life?
Just look at average Lee speaking average Lee speaking, look at your everyday life. You know, I said this example once someone's got upset. What do you get upset? Just be real? How much? Do you read a day? Generally speaking,
there's always the one scholar who wants to tell me about seven hours a day, usually.
But generally speaking, how much What else do you read a day?
Truth really truth for some of us. And forgive me for the example. Some of us spent more time in the bathroom in a day than you read for me in a month.
You know, just if you were to calculate just the time you see on Facebook and YouTube, or Twitter, like whatever it is, even if you're doing halen things and I'm not saying you do,
but just the amount of time you spend on that man.
Compare that to the amount of time he spent on you know, trying to memorize and coming to the machine.
How does that look? Honestly, what are you doing with your life?
The doors are open.
Alaska has given us so much opportunity. You know with all of our mistakes and with all of our shortcomings. Still the goal of repentance is open, almost panorama will never turn away from you.
And facts and fallacies.
Allah says I will never good and a soul. I will never burden a soul with anything more than that which is carry. But you know what the truth is we bought on ourselves.
We put responsibilities on our songs and we make our lives more difficult than what it really needs to be.
Our smart policies let the man who has means let each man according to his means. Let him spend on his family.
If I was giving you all of you spent according to what you have on you, but if if if you're doing a hustle you're a marketer like me you know I'm not doing a law says I'm also spent according to what I've given
but we make our lives more difficult than what it really needs to be and there's no need for
which side of the fit really Which side are you on?
You know this concept of keeping up with the germs Habibi, you'll never keep up with this dunya is designed as such. You know, I always share this example I remember one time a brother bought a white BMW, it was brand new. Anyway so the boys you know or hanging out was a brand new car man like must have been at least 100 k plus at the time. Brother rocks up and obviously he's happy. You know,
minor and rocked up was a nice car park that everyone's looking at the car with
the joy the
it's a good
it's a good feeling.
And he felt like he was on cloud might everyone's looking at him. everyone's asking him questions. And just as we were there would be maybe 20 minutes. Just as we went in the same car. The same car came, it was the same color.
But the other car had a sunroof. He's one didn't have a sunroof, we left the brother, we went to the other one.
Just like that he was shattered, you know?
But that's really that's
it's, it's moments.
Two seconds of fame, and then it's gone.
we want to try to be a message of hope.
But not airy fairy hope.
That's why I mentioned that the Sahaba was scared and worried.
yes, it's a no one, no one, no one can take away the mercy of Allah. But tonight, we wanted to do what? Just if I can very quickly, I wanted to, let's put the mercy and the hope. Let's put it in the right context.
The door is open. No one can ever stand between you and the law. My brother, no one.
No one. But we want to put things in the right context. So that we don't walk out of here and we misled. But you know what? I can do whatever I want. And I can run amok. Yeah. And so long as I say that a lot more than you know, everything's gonna be okay.
You know, and I even mentioned this last night, you know, some of us we cling on to things that have no way.
And how many times have you heard of a story? The brother never prayed. The brother lived his whole life doing heroin and doing 1234
button handler when he died, and most likely, you know, he died in a state of
flow when he died. One of the brothers he seen his finger move.
I know of a brother that that
and I don't want to say too much to the brothers don't think I'm you know, I know one person that drowned. He drowned, doing kahraman
doing how he he drowned by doing
the Public Enemies. I heard that if you drown, you buy as a Shaheed
I'm actually not being negative. We need to be realistic.
We need to be realistic.
And I'm sure you've heard about that guy that bought
three weeks ago. And that video went viral. The guy that recorded the video. So much drama over that video so much drama, people are punching on about it. Oh, he didn't say the show had died. He didn't do this.
Why is it that we're cleaning our hopes on those last moments number one, that video wasn't complete. Number two, the brother that recorded that. I know he personally and he actually called me while he was still there with me but I'm telling you the one I mentioned that he's not making it.
Just relaxed to me what's happening.
he didn't say it. So what does that mean? What?
I'm sharing this as fact because I feel like it's the right of this brother that we clarify. The husband just explained to me what's happening.
Brother I'm telling him to make sure Heather and he's not making it more what's happened he said he's just come off a motorbike. I said how fast was he going? Certainly about 150 Ks Habibi. Anyone comes off a bike at 150 Ks. He's got to be in a state of shock.
But he will I think that when we go in water, it's gonna be
he won't be realistic man. The words come off a bike at 150 Ks in our complete shot. Hispanic was busted up. He's laying there on the ground. Mind pacing at 100 miles an hour.
What's happening? He said, I'm making sure I'm telling him
what to do. And you say says he's looking me in the eye. I said does he have knowledge what you're saying? Sure. I think he is man.
He's you. Yes.
He's looking me in the eye.
And my photos on my phone. He said he's grabbing my head when I'm telling him to make sure he's not saying that but he's squeezing on my own
knowledge he knows exactly what he
won't be so shallow
and you know these brothers that sort of argue I tell him brother from the time you watch that video being honest, how many times have you met
your wife? The there's nothing wrong with you and you haven't made it.
And we want to give vertic tu tu tu tu abroad to Ramallah for those Salalah You know?
So anyway, because I want to bring this to a close. What is it that we want to send out today and tomorrow? Why my brothers it's this there is hope for every single one of us.
From the biggest gangster to the biggest jerk to the biggest Abbot to the whatever you think you are, there is hope. There is hope this deal came to take humanity from darkness into light. Whatever problem whatever situation you have in your life, the answer and the solution is in Islam. I promise you it is. This is the deen of Allah.
It's there. No matter what you don't want, no matter what you've done in your life, the Toba and the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala each day, in the authentic Hadith of the Prophet of Allah, he narrates to us from the people that came before us.
The Prophet of Allah He mentioned to us a man, I mentioned the story many times, a man that killed 99 people, and then killed 99 people.
I'm gonna wrap it up with this. So a man killed 99 people I asked I challenge anyone he has anyone in this room?
Because I'm sure there's brothers visiting his brother. You don't know what I've done in my past when there's no way
look at the difference. There's something in his heart, you know, he wanted to come to a mall.
This is a sad story. So the man comes to the people. And he says, Look, I want to repent, I want to come to a mall. Where do I go?
So because he asked just local people, so they said, Look, go to this man who's arbit this man you worship. Some of them might go and speak to him, and he'll give you advice.
This story will know we can learn so much lessons. So the main goals for this RV. And in today's terms, you know who that is?
What's the modern day translation for this RV?
The bloke at the message with the big beam
brothers come up with the most amazing factor brother would you get that from brother in the machine?
this is not a play to be humble yet, some
people you know because they've seen you speak a couple of words Colossus convinced.
You should never take your deen from me never know.
This is the hack of the day. someone like myself can give a reminder pedosphere law come from our repentance do boots by the way? That's my job. But you do.
You have to go to someone that's a chef, someone that studied someone that said under someone less certain than someone that
that certain Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, that's
the danger when you take your deen when you take your Hillel and you're around from someone is the danger in the story. So the man goes to this religious guy. This is brother I've killed 99 people. So this guy he's religious. He's never done heroin in his life. He's never done the scene in his life. He can't imagine killing a fly, let alone killing a human. The man's killed 99 his brother killed 99 people cannot forgive me. There's no way I can forgive you.
Based on what he knows, he says no way that he says no way I'm working forgive you. So hey story, says listen, because if I was not gonna forgive me
this is someone's will punish you off and make him 100.
No joke in the Hadith. He mocked the brother. He killed him. He actually killed it.
It shows you the ruthlessness of like it's not like he you know he killed him because
he looked at my sister.
He killed him because they don't like his photo.
shows you how ruthless this guy was. So anyway, just to finish because we have to wrap it up and
on so the man kills him he's killed 100 but
he really wasn't see he wanted
so after some time, you know, he wasn't sitting what would you say that's back to the people who says, Look, I'm looking for repentance. Where do I go?
With your own life, he killed the most religious black amongst us.
As a bloke over there, there's a scholar over there is in another town. One lady This is he says, there's a scholar in another town a lot of flack for that. And I go to him and ask him, man, anyway, um, I'm coming to a close relax. Right? So but look out since he was a Chihuahua, and I will touch on the the lessons that we need to learn to the man because he was really sincere. He gets onto his animal, whatever it is, he rides over to the town and he goes, now he goes to a genuine spa, then look at the difference between a real Island
and just the religious guy, you know. So he goes to this island, he says this sort of killed 100.
He said, look and stand between you
have a hockey run. This is just what I came to him. But look, and this is this is the key. This is the whole light now is right now is right now. He says my brother who can stand between you and the last part of Allah. He says but, but and this is our problem. He says, For a lot to forgive you for your repentance to be sincere and genuine. He says my brother, the environment that you live in is not good for you. It's destroying you. Your friends are weighing you down, your environment, your people your work, it's weighing you down. He says if you're really sincere, he says you need to leave your environment and go to this place with his good people. There's pure people, there's
people that feel alone, you need to go there, and these people will help you in your tober so the man being Cincy. He packs his stuff and he heads off to the town that he was told to go on the way he buys
and the way he buys why it is not a fairy tale.
So the angels of mercy come down and the angels of love punishment come down. And there's a dispute between the angels. The angels of mercy said the man made boba, the angels of punishment said now Hang on, he was on the way to make Toba. This guy's a murderer he killed 100 people.
So Alice metallocenes down the third angel to be a judge between the three
he says measure the distance of the earth if he's closer to the town have seen the lady angels of punishment taking but if the man is closer to the town of where the boot people are, yeah, and the the town where he was willing to seek forgiveness. He says the lead the angels of mercy, thank you. So they measured the distance of the earth. Unfortunately for him, he was closer to the town of Sydney.
So Allah subhana wa tada or the D earth to change its dimensions and brought in one hands on cleanser, one hand spent closer to the time of weakness.
To be far more did this for a man that killed 100 what do you think Allah is prepared to do for any you for any one of us sitting here on Mondays radio was prepared? The what's the lesson from this story? You know what it is? Every one of us claims that we want change. Every one of us says brother, I'm not happy with my life and I want to change. The difference between us and this man is this man was so sincere. He was ready to make a move.
But you know, we don't want to change.
We don't want to change. I lost my slave. If you come to me as I come to you an arm's length. Allah says my slave, if you come to me walking, I come to you running.
The issue is is you need to make the loop.
The forgiveness of Allah is there, it's promised.
But you need to make a loop.
So my brothers were more you know, any one of you would agree, whatever it is, whether you feel like look, I'm against style, or if you like cooking or whatever life you live, if you want change, the promise of a light is there. The forgiveness of Allah is there. The only thing is you need to make a move. You need to take a step forward. It's upon you take one step, you find them all day, one step and Allah Allah, Allah will open those and handle lead. There's people out there.
There are people that are ready to help you. But you need to make if you don't put your hand up and say brother, I'm drowning. If you don't put your hand up and say brother, I need to know. How are we gonna know?
Yes upon a lot. Well, Miami just the other day and I really want to thank
brother Keith and Willie and
Because he opened his doors and allowed for this gathering to take place just the other day and I was having a drink
was having a drink with him in his
cafe you know?
He says, you know from the LA City you know, how's the gym?
The gym is not all that he does.
I'm dealing with people's lives.
Just be brave enough to raise your hand. There's no shame Habibi, there's no shame. There was a time we're lucky there was a time I had no idea what was going on. You know, for two years I was praying I'm gonna be shredded. I was praying for two years two years I was making salad you know what i thought?
I thought every time you father you have to wash your rear end
after two years, he was about to stop praying. So they become a believer
at work and stopping in going into matters and of horrors and get the water for what for breaking? Because you don't know if you don't have knowledge and you don't know.
to one day I was frustrated every time
you ask you get
the job LDN is easy when we're the ones that complicated so anyway, going back to my discussion with
the gym is dates open and we get these young guys off and we give them a path and we show them and they pray and like a box and they can train and they've got something you know that they can and whatever problems that they have in their life he's ready he's ready he takes your problem on personally who deal with you he'll do you know if you've got dramas with someone and you really want to change he's ready to sort out whatever issue you have. So there's hope is there

have been a
Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid you won't hurt your head you want the best of life then come to the end. You want to be successful in this role the year after.
The only success is the way of
just one last thing you want to share this with the brothers.
My brothers our community's drowning man.
We need hope
you know what I'm saying this last night? You know if every chef in Australia if every chef in Australia but together and united and started working 24 hours a day seven days a week for the stability Habibi our community is too deep into trouble.
We need the manpower. You know, I look around me and I see good brothers that have good potential. Yes. What are you doing?
Habibi Donovan Dean is not just talking
to the brothers all the time what I'm doing now this isn't our you know this is
pulled the champagne tower looking like a celebrity you sit on the chair. You have a nice and then while I measure laughter everyone comes and hugs you. And the brother looks everything's happy. This isn't our This is champagne. Our
you people have come to you the Pope. Really there was no jazz.
real dad was on the shrink going and sacrificing and going to this guy's house at 12 o'clock at night because there's a drama in this issue. Have you been that's the power of your Habib's?
So what I wanted to mention is that, you know, you brothers, look around and see how many young boys Man, these people need to know.
One way if everyone just came, brother, he just came, you know, this whole thing. This this whole thing's been a three day. You don't put the whole thing together. The whole thing was one brother.
One brother that came.
I said probably you do whatever you got to do and
you think I'm doing everything? Maybe there's someone behind it.
But if one brother can't look how much Harry's done, imagine when all of us get together sincerely and we really want to change things happy we can move mountains.
Dean is not just talking
from the toes because man I know for me on a fisherman habito Come come.
He says May I can fish. Some brothers they fish from Malaysia all the way to fudger that's his life.
As a brother if that's what you have to offer. Good. Why don't you go to the machine. Get one of these jeans. Go and see the hundreds and hundreds of youth that have nothing to do nowhere to go.
Why don't you take one of these boys? Put him in the car with you and take him with you
take him with you.
Look if you don't take him with you what's he gonna do?
What's he gonna do you live either sitting outside on the streets doing something
you know why the boy one taking with you
a fishing spot
Nah, I don't trust these little kids were gonna put off
and then before I know it next time I come to
you know everyone wants change but no one wants to pay the price man.
So anyway, I've spoken for way too long. You know what we're laying my brothers I'm sure I'm sure you get the message it make a move to make a move. And this place is open you know Keith always tells me he's he is ready. It's open the gym is he even if you don't want to talk you want to come and punch a bag and lay your frustration out.
Hope is there just raise your hand.
Good is this every one of you now when you get up to leave this gathering is gonna forgive all of your seniors.
So please, my brothers we need to start working together.
Is the forgiveness in the mercy of Allah there? Yes it is but at what price
you need to make.
So on that alarm, Allah subhanaw taala
