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

Mashallah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:00:05--> 00:00:10

shala. Before we start, I want to mention a hadith that I love always starting with

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

that the basil Allahu Allahu wa sallam once was with the Sahaba. And he says so the Sahaba sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says to them,

00:00:21--> 00:00:25

he says to them, none of you will enter Paradise until you believe.

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

And none of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.

00:00:33--> 00:00:40

So he says to them sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Shall I tell you something that if you do it, it will increase the love amongst you.

00:00:41--> 00:00:47

So they said of course they also love Please tell us this is gifts alarms to one another.

00:00:48--> 00:01:04

This will spread the love. So inshallah before we start if I can kindly ask all the brothers to stand up inshallah have a bit of a stretch and give some love to someone that you don't know inshallah yellow all of us together inshallah, stand up and turn around maybe the seniors can give Salaam to some of the young guys.

00:01:10--> 00:01:15

Give celebs to one another. Ideally give Salaam to someone you don't know. What's this

00:01:46--> 00:02:03

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah appraises due to Allah subhanho wa Taala, the king, the master, the Sustainer, the creator of the seven heavens in the earth, and we send peace and blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. My brother's got lots of panna hautala his house

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

and everything that comes from him, his have

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

his MBA,

00:02:10--> 00:02:11

and this is how

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

gender is hot.

00:02:14--> 00:02:20

And jahannam is how his angels are, how His revelation is.

00:02:21--> 00:02:24

Everything that comes from him subhanho wa Taala is how

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

he saw sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is Huck, he's truthful.

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

He's truthful and he's honest.

00:02:33--> 00:02:48

Even before His revelation, even before becoming an abuse of Allahu Allah, He will seldom imagine, even before Prophet told the people around him testified that he was a solid amine.

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

And even after Prophethood

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

over accusations were made against him, the vast majority still would leave there

00:03:02--> 00:03:08

with him because they knew that he was the most honest and trustworthy amongst us.

00:03:10--> 00:03:19

My brother's the last of China, what Allah He orders us in the Quran. To speak the truth, even if the truth be against yourself.

00:03:22--> 00:03:41

You see my brothers, unfortunately, many of us, we've taken a version of Dean that we like a version of Dean that pretty much everyone else around me is doing a version of Dean that gives me some sort of sense of satisfaction. This is what we know. This is what we do. So we're rolling with it.

00:03:42--> 00:03:48

But this is not the deen that Allah wants for the Sahaba they said we found

00:03:50--> 00:03:56

we found goodness, we found progress in the things that are nuts hated the most.

00:03:58--> 00:04:05

You see my brothers, your journey to Allah is a continuous journey and it's a journey full of hurdles and complications.

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

Go down a dark road but don't you ever, ever ever, and I mean ever

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

become someone that is dishonest?

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

And it's one thing to be dishonest with others.

00:04:24--> 00:04:29

We've screwed up to such lows, that we even lie to ourselves.

00:04:31--> 00:04:43

You see my brothers on the surface of things when we say brother, are you an honest man? Do you always speak the truth? Naturally all of us we hamdulillah Of course my brother.

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

I always speak the truth. I always stand for the Huck. You seen these claims are very easy.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

But when a lot of tests when Allah shapes when a lot puts you in situations

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

Very easily you find that we're not as honest as we claim we are.

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

You see if you ask me on any given day, how are you an honest man?

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

Do you stand for the Huck?

00:05:18--> 00:05:27

You say my brother's basics, let's go back to basics in Islam. And I'm sure tonight my talk is going to be an easy for some people.

00:05:30--> 00:05:34

But we're here to speak the truth and the truth is not supposed to be easy.

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

You know why people don't like the truth.

00:05:42--> 00:05:46

Because sometimes though, it's not intentional. The truth hurts.

00:05:48--> 00:05:49

We don't like to hurt.

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

I mean, we like to hurt others. That's fine. But me most I don't like to be hurt.

00:05:56--> 00:06:05

You say my brothers our allegiance is to Allah and His Prophet. And this Deen and the Quran, which are all based on truth.

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

My allegiance is not to my father.

00:06:12--> 00:06:32

My allegiance is not to my mother. My allegiance is not to my country, not to the color of my skin. My allegiance is not to my mother. My allegiance is not to my share. My allegiance is not to my Eman. My allegiance is not to my budget and my organization. My allegiance is to a lot.

00:06:35--> 00:06:54

You see, I love my father and I respect him. And that's my mother and I respect her. I love my second amendment, my teacher, and my I love them all dearly, and I respect him. But when push comes to shove, my allegiance is to align his profit and I will take the truth, even if it goes against myself.

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

This is what this did was established on. This is what made the Sahaba who they are.

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

Today, unfortunately, we are very far from this image man.

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

Because when push comes to shove

00:07:13--> 00:07:17

it very quickly shows who your allegiance really is to

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

when I was in high school,

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

this incident has never left my mind and it has scarred me permanently.

00:07:33--> 00:07:40

And every now and then when Allah showers me with his grace, and I sort of get a little bit confident with myself.

00:07:42--> 00:07:43

Every now and then.

00:07:45--> 00:07:50

Depending on my level of sincerity, Allah reminds me of this incident that happened in my life.

00:07:53--> 00:08:01

I was a teenager, we were in high school. I must have been in year 11, maybe 12. So towards the end of high school.

00:08:03--> 00:08:11

And I'm not sure how things are here. But to shed some background on the dynamics of things you see, I'm Lebanese, Arab, whatever you like.

00:08:17--> 00:08:19

We're very arrogant people man.

00:08:23--> 00:08:23

Like

00:08:26--> 00:08:28

big knifes, man.

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

We think our feces doesn't stink.

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

Deep down in the corner of our hearts in places we don't talk about.

00:08:44--> 00:08:47

I think I'm better than the man sitting next to me, man.

00:08:49--> 00:08:58

So we're in high school and I'm Lebanese and this school the majority of the boys were Lebanese. So automatically helaas once you the majority,

00:09:00--> 00:09:16

no one's gonna mess with you. Not only am I the majority, but I was fortunate enough to be very early. I was relatively loved by the boys and I was the funny character and the outspoken character and charismatic and all this nonsense, right? So I got along well with the boys.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

And as a young man growing up,

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

you know you want to fit in.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

No one wants to be the loner.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

No one wants to be the outcast.

00:09:31--> 00:09:39

But if you're truthful and honest, sometimes Allah will put you in such situations. You just may have to pay that price.

00:09:41--> 00:09:46

You see my brothers we all think we're honest people. And on the surface, I believe you all

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

but when push comes to shove

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

so we're sitting there all the boys were hanging out we're having a good time. It was a lunch break

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

and there was a boy at school.

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

Am I mentioning every detail because it's very, very important.

00:10:06--> 00:10:11

At the time, I didn't think much of it, but because I've played it in my mind so many times

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

I don't know exactly what to cry about anymore.

00:10:18--> 00:10:25

So there was a boy at school that was accused was never proved it, but he was accused of being a Jew

00:10:28--> 00:10:28

in alila.

00:10:32--> 00:10:33

Not that that should matter should it

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

shouldn't matter. In theory, we as Muslims shouldn't matter.

00:10:44--> 00:10:45

But then,

00:10:47--> 00:11:01

you see, sometimes I go to areas in non Muslim countries. So you know, I'll get a tattoo on the brothers, they show me around, they tell me brother, you're not having to lead this club now is 95% Muslim, with a big smile on his face?

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

And we're so proud that we've almost conquered the sub

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

10 brother with all the other people.

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

The truth is they ran away, bro.

00:11:20--> 00:11:21

Is this beam

00:11:23--> 00:11:27

should people be running to live next to you or running away from you?

00:11:32--> 00:11:42

We get so happy that Alhamdulillah the community is 90% Muslims. Look how shallow and naive we are.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

That's why.

00:11:46--> 00:11:50

And I must confess what I've seen in South Africa is on another level.

00:11:52--> 00:11:55

What your elders have done for you people here.

00:11:56--> 00:12:01

If you leave another three lifetimes to thank them for them. One likely you will never think that.

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

But having said that

00:12:08--> 00:12:13

would have been 2% of the country for how many years and it hasn't changed.

00:12:15--> 00:12:21

Because we built my little machine. And I've built my little madrasa and really the hell with the rest of the world.

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

So this man was accused of being a Jew.

00:12:30--> 00:12:37

And we were all young Lebanese boys. Right? So automatically he became the what's the word for

00:12:38--> 00:12:50

not just outcasts. He's the one that people made jokes of. He's the one who would throw your rubbish on. He's the one who would pick the football at his head Halas he became the joke of the school.

00:12:52--> 00:12:58

And now when I look back at why the story is so hurtful, he tried so much to fit in with us, you know.

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

But he was never ever accepted.

00:13:04--> 00:13:10

He was a non Muslim wasn't proven whether he was a Jew. But because his surname was a

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

poor guy, man.

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

Shift the spikes coming out of this thing is this. I mean, is this a way of torturing?

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

So we're sitting there one day we win that? No, no, it's fine. It's fine.

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

The prank is over.

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

And please, when I'm sharing the story, don't think about me.

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

Because I'm sure every one of you has been in a very similar situation.

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

But like I was saying last night, we never like to admit our faults Do we?

00:14:02--> 00:14:09

When the hope or and is read from cover to cover, not a single verse is in reference to me, except the verses of Rama.

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

Everything else? I don't know it's for someone else. When Allah speaks about the hypocrites, not not me.

00:14:20--> 00:14:32

When Allah speaks about anything, that when I was speaking about his punishment, when every verse in the Quran does not belong to me, except the verses of mercy.

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

Anyway, so we're sitting there in the school.

00:14:39--> 00:14:47

We're sitting on the stairs, there must have been about 20 of us. So this young boy and I'm talking maybe 19 mine, maybe 2000

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

mobile phones were still very, very rare. And this young boy came to school with a Nakia 88 pin. If you're familiar with it, I still remember them.

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

model of the phone.

00:15:02--> 00:15:06

You know, it was a little chrome slide. It was like the elite

00:15:07--> 00:15:14

businessman couldn't afford it. So this young boy comes he's holding this phone and met Wow.

00:15:15--> 00:15:23

Got a phone. Maybe the young kid was done I just discovered that he was a big deal. So he came in

00:15:25--> 00:15:30

like any young man he's excited thinking maybe this is my ticket into becoming one of the boys man.

00:15:33--> 00:15:44

And while I remember that day so vividly all the boys were sitting on the stairs. And I don't know why that day. I was the only one that was standing so I was looking at the boys and we're joking and I was a normal

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

and I remember he came and he's holding his phone and he was so excited.

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

And he's showing the boys

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

so everyone is on Oh wow.

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

That and the other

00:16:00--> 00:16:06

until one of the boys that was in the group whom I never liked one like I never liked him from day one.

00:16:08--> 00:16:25

But Carlos is Lebanese is Muslim is one of us what do you do man you can't we no more so it was like this political so whatever. So now he came. He had the phone. He's passing the phone around everyone is looking at it. And this one particular brother he decided to steal his phone

00:16:27--> 00:16:37

so as the phone passed from one hand to another, and watching I see that in front of my eyes, bro, he took the phone put it in his pocket and the night that he ever took it

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

in front of ice man

00:16:48--> 00:16:58

so now the brothers like you know it's not a joke anymore to get in serious boys please Where's my phone? I don't have I don't have I don't have it. Now it's he's starting to realize that

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

they're gonna rob me

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

so in the midst of all of this

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

he looks over to me.

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

And he said to me, did you see who took my phone?

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

What a situation

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

because when you're with the boys

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

you got to be tight man.

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

You don't rat on anyone bro.

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

And not just rat on anyone. He's apparently you do.

00:17:44--> 00:17:45

Now you're in a sticky situation.

00:17:47--> 00:17:51

And it's sticky because there's no Dean that's why if you had been there's nothing to think about.

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

So now there's a

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

thought process.

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

Did you see the phone? Yes, I did.

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

But do I confess that I did or not?

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

That day. Allah showed me

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

how much of a coward I am.

00:18:18--> 00:18:19

And that day Allah showed me

00:18:20--> 00:18:24

that when push comes to shove my allegiance is not to align his profit

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

because I seen with a phone with

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

the sake of not losing my friends.

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

I said to know Him and

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

the look in his eye haunts me to this day.

00:18:46--> 00:18:49

That a lot put you in a moment to speak the truth.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

Act like a coward you didn't.

00:18:56--> 00:18:56

And for

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

for a guy who you never liked anyway.

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

You see my brother speaking the truth on the surface sounds nice and pretty.

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

But when push comes to shove

00:19:12--> 00:19:15

it's not as glamorous as what you really think it is.

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

No, after the school I haven't seen him since then. Even if I see him the phone's gone anyway.

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

But this experience haunts me.

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

You see my brothers we all find that where people have HAC.

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

You see, the Sahaba were very straight people.

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he spoke the truth no matter what the price is, no matter what they were going to do. You see a Muslim will never compromise no matter what it is. There is zero compromise when it comes to the truth. You say the Prophet of Allah was prosecuted for you

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

The harbor were persecuted for years. And they tried everything. Everything against him, but he's faithful. Until one day it got so bad that the people of Christ, I can't

00:20:15--> 00:20:19

say, Enough, enough. Enough.

00:20:20--> 00:20:38

Tell you enough. What is he one? Does he want to be the king? Does he want to be the Roomba? Is it women that he's after? What does he want? Is if money were making the richest, if it's women who choose the prettiest women in coronation will bury them all off team, what does he want?

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

And they threw everything at him.

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

You and I, when we hear the story, we think brother,

00:20:51--> 00:20:52

I would have stood

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

there, relax.

00:20:57--> 00:21:02

Relax. Because you and I have sold this land for fun.

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

To add some extra money through tax returns,

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

you will cheat in light even though you'll be these like this.

00:21:20--> 00:21:21

For

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

you would lie.

00:21:28--> 00:21:31

So they came to the prophet and they threw everything.

00:21:35--> 00:21:56

They sent the Mr. Five in a compromise. Sometimes you're put in a situation where and this maybe not in South Africa but in the West big problems. Now, scholars getting into the West, giving into politicians. Come on man, look, things are getting tough. Things are getting hard.

00:21:57--> 00:22:03

And now now our governments they hand out grants, grants Money, money, grants,

00:22:05--> 00:22:10

or share with their money we can build that machine look foolish and stupid and naive we'd become

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

a prophet of a law. Look.

00:22:16--> 00:22:20

We will worship your law for one need.

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

worship our gods for one day.

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

Hekmat wisdom

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

in one here you can do that way. He says never

00:22:38--> 00:22:46

sorry at first he started one day for one. You worship your Lord one day we will worship for you. The next day. He says never. He says one week us.

00:22:48--> 00:22:55

Right? We will worship you Lord for a week you worship Allah says never. They said we will worship your love for a month we worship.

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

They said we will worship

00:23:01--> 00:23:01

you.

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

One day, he says

00:23:09--> 00:23:12

that was not the time for feelings and morals.

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

That was the time of Huck and justice.

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

Speak the truth

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

is not as glamorous as what people really think it is.

00:23:28--> 00:23:30

And I've been in so many situations.

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

A brother comes from a big family.

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

My brother comes from a big family.

00:23:41--> 00:23:42

And he commits a crime man.

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

And everyone knows he committed the crime.

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

So you come to the family.

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

And you say Brother, listen, man.

00:23:53--> 00:23:59

We know you guys very well. We love you guys very well, we respect you very well. But your brother is causing havoc, man.

00:24:01--> 00:24:04

How many times have you been in a similar situation?

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

So the brother says, Yeah, I know my brother's a bad boy. I know.

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

I admit that what he's doing is wrong.

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

But what do you want me to do? That's my brother, man.

00:24:19--> 00:24:25

Where is your allegiance? Is it to Allah and His Prophet and justice? What is it to your family?

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

Now I'm not telling you to abandon your brother.

00:24:30--> 00:24:44

But when you need to make a stance, stand for the truth stands for the heart. Because that's why this Almighty suffering the way it is, because very few are prepared to stand for the heart. You know why? Because many of us were not prepared to face the music.

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

When the daughter and the son get married,

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

they get married. It's so nice.

00:24:54--> 00:24:57

Please look this up. We want you to be there for the Nika

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

a law

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

We want the blessings of a law.

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

Look at the hypocrisy now.

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

The niqab took place in the Americas it took place in the museum.

00:25:15--> 00:25:15

So cute.

00:25:20--> 00:25:21

Then when things go wrong,

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

how many times I've been in gatherings

00:25:28--> 00:25:31

father and the father of the girl,

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

the father of the boy.

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

And they both give their side.

00:25:38--> 00:25:44

And it's clearly clearly black and white, a blind man can see clearly

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

that the door is in the wrong.

00:25:50--> 00:25:59

So I say sure. You heard Eudora? Yeah, clearly she's in the wrong. Yeah. Let's do something. What you want to do, man, that's my daughter.

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

You see,

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

we claim we stand for truth.

00:26:09--> 00:26:14

But when push comes to shove, my allegiance shows right away. Where is my allegiance, really.

00:26:17--> 00:26:23

When we got married, we wanted the last blessings when they get divorced. Well, now it's my lawyer versus yours.

00:26:28--> 00:26:29

And we claim,

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

we make very pretty claims.

00:26:36--> 00:26:51

To speak the truth, to stand for the heart, even if it's against yourself, even if it's against your family, even if it's against your budget, by law, even if it's against Islam. You stand for the truth no matter what.

00:26:53--> 00:26:55

Because when the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:26:58--> 00:27:29

You see when one of the when one of the rich tribes of the Arabs, one of their daughters or their sons, they committed the crime. So this was big news. Now go to the Arab world, it's flooded with these problems. The lay man gets executed. The poor man that can get proper representation. They wipe the floor with even in the Western world. But people that are famous people that are prominent people that have money, people that come from good families,

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

every corruption under the sun

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

when the sun does a crime,

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

but when it's a nobody,

00:27:46--> 00:27:50

but you share it to me and I'm going to share it on all of my social networks.

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

Why? Because he's not the Mufti son.

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

Why? Because he's not your chef son.

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

The corruption, the corruption.

00:28:05--> 00:28:22

Wait, wait, wait, where is their allegiance? So they came to the profit of a law. And they said to my profit of a law, this person that's committed the crime. They come from a very, very noble or whatever it was, it was a very influential family.

00:28:23--> 00:28:27

Please, oh, profitable law. Can we make some concessions?

00:28:29--> 00:28:29

So he's

00:28:33--> 00:28:38

the one who testified that he's, he's on another level.

00:28:43--> 00:28:43

He says

00:28:45--> 00:28:50

if my daughter wants to steal, I will chop her head.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

No one is above the law.

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

No one is above the law.

00:29:04--> 00:29:07

Not even the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

Where is our legions man?

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

We come to the masjid we all look pretty nice big beads.

00:29:19--> 00:29:22

But look at us when we deal in business.

00:29:28--> 00:29:31

And we wonder why the world is turning against the slab we wonder why.

00:29:35--> 00:29:36

Look at our businessmen.

00:29:37--> 00:29:52

A whole nation called Indonesia a whole nation called Indonesia. embrace Islam. And not a single word of Dawa was given. I think seven Muslim traders went there to buy and sell.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

Seven Muslim traders went to buy and sell a whole nation which still

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

These days is the biggest country in the world that old Muslim population accepted Islam through Buying and selling.

00:30:11--> 00:30:17

Today when we deal with Muslims share, has he done Hajj? Yes, that has, that is definitely a lie. Amen.

00:30:22--> 00:30:34

In Australia, I'm not sure what the conditions are in here in Australia, you would hire any tradesmen to come fix your home. But you will never in a million years hire or Muslim?

00:30:38--> 00:30:42

How long are you gonna be? I'll be there in 15 minutes in Sharla. Two hours later, you're still waiting?

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

And we love

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

10 minutes. Is that Pakistani? 10 minutes? Or is that like the real 10 minutes?

00:30:55--> 00:30:56

We love it's actually become culture.

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

It's become become culture.

00:31:03--> 00:31:09

Sometimes Allah sends you someone, maybe some skin man. He's selling an item, you know what it's worth.

00:31:13--> 00:31:14

But because he doesn't know.

00:31:16--> 00:31:19

Instead of helping the brother, what do you do?

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

Like a savage beast.

00:31:25--> 00:31:26

You take advantage of

00:31:28--> 00:31:39

one of the companions. I'm not sure what life to give me. It's a very famous story, but I don't remember the details. So just to be safe. I'm not going to say one of the companions, one of our very pious, pious predecessors.

00:31:40--> 00:31:46

He was walking in the marketplace and he came to a man that was selling a horse, not the horse that jumped off the cliff.

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

But he was selling a horse

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

so he says to the men

00:31:54--> 00:31:56

is this from show how much you want for your horse?

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

I want 100 dinars.

00:32:01--> 00:32:06

This is 100 dinars. This is me. That's what I want. He says, your horse is worth more than that man.

00:32:10--> 00:32:11

If that was you and I

00:32:13--> 00:32:15

owe 100. Chair, come on, man.

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

How much you want. He says 100 is less to share. Your heart is worth more.

00:32:25--> 00:32:29

She's okay. 200 dinars. He says it's worth more.

00:32:30--> 00:32:35

He says okay, 300 dinars. He says to him, your horse is worth.

00:32:37--> 00:32:44

He's just like a 400 dinars. He says, Look, I'm gonna give you the 400 dinars. But just so you know, your house is actually worth more.

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

Go to any movie.

00:32:51--> 00:32:53

Good businessmen or bad businessman.

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

Come on, talk, bro. Be honest.

00:32:58--> 00:33:00

Good businessmen or bad businessmen.

00:33:04--> 00:33:08

Most of you are scared to even say it out loud. Because you don't know what how am I going to respond? You know,

00:33:13--> 00:33:26

good businessman or that business member? See, again, it's it's how many times how many times? I've advertised the car for sale. I've advertised the car for sale. And someone called me and there was a verbal agreement.

00:33:27--> 00:33:39

A verbal agreement? Yes. Do you agree on the price? Yes, I agree on the price. I wouldn't be there tomorrow to pick it up. 10 minutes later, someone called and offered me an extra $500.

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

You know, was so foolish and naive.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

Guess who made that second call?

00:33:50--> 00:33:52

No, no, it was a law that allowed that to happen.

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

He offered you an extra 500

00:33:58--> 00:34:01

automatically. What do you do? Do you honor your agreement?

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

shall call you back.

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

Yeah, brother. Look, when I told my wife that I'm selling it. She lost that man.

00:34:12--> 00:34:14

Sorry, you know, Chef, my apologies.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

Brother, come pick up the car.

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

And then with this money.

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

We go to make tawaf around the Kaaba

00:34:35--> 00:34:37

and stand in front of the door of the Kaaba.

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

Please,

00:34:50--> 00:34:53

to speak the truth even when it's against yourself.

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

These are qualities that are long

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Long, long long gone.

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

Even if it's against a slam

00:35:12--> 00:35:13

spit back.

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

You think share what are you talking about man?

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

narration narration

00:35:26--> 00:35:38

and please don't you know, don't listen to the story because our lights and my story chef, you know the way you say the story, man, it's very nice. Please, please listen.

00:35:39--> 00:35:45

Imagine there's no one else in here but you did penetrate this sick heart of ours.

00:35:49--> 00:35:55

And this story I will stop at every single juncture and explain because it's too juicy to just let it go like this man.

00:36:00--> 00:36:05

So when I leave in avatar liberati a lot on who was Amir and what meaning

00:36:08--> 00:36:11

Are you with me or not? Are you sleep? Okay, stay with me.

00:36:13--> 00:36:14

I will wrap it up with this story.

00:36:17--> 00:36:19

When I live in Hollywood, I mean,

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

who's leaving?

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

He was there's actually a few left as to who the first Muslim is.

00:36:38--> 00:36:55

So one of the other map just to make peace. He said okay, okay, let's just lay down. The first woman was Khadija. The first grant the first grant. The first Birdman was Abu Bakar the first young boy was albina Vitaly, but depending on who you asked, I will actually tell you Alibaba Vitaly was the first one

00:36:57--> 00:36:58

after Khadija

00:36:59--> 00:37:00

But anyway, it's not my point.

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

But to show you who this young man is.

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

A man who never did shirk in his life ever.

00:37:11--> 00:37:27

A man who when the prophet of a law, every time they face the enemy, in the beginning of the battle, they would be a duel, a one on one, where you bring your best will bring your best, and they fight never lost the battle.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

In

00:37:31--> 00:38:01

the court of law, one morning he gave the flag of a worker in the morning, he gave the flag to a worker, right as in the army. They fought fought, fought but couldn't break the lines. So the next morning, he gave us a flat top. He fought fought fought but couldn't break the line. So that night, the prophet of the Lord said, tomorrow I will give the flag to a man who loves the Lord and His Prophet and

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

profit I love him in return.

00:38:06--> 00:38:11

The next morning he gave the Taliban avatar League, guess what they broke the lines and they won the war.

00:38:20--> 00:38:23

You to me I like her on to WUSA.

00:38:27--> 00:38:28

So now I live in avatar live

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

is ameerul momineen.

00:38:33--> 00:38:34

And his shield

00:38:36--> 00:38:37

was stolen.

00:38:39--> 00:38:47

And every aspect of this story is so important. Please, please hang in there with me.

00:38:48--> 00:38:50

So now imagine

00:38:53--> 00:39:12

why I wish with all my love and respect. I wish the fathers and the Imams and the presidents of our organizations and the Mufti sub and the whatever, these titles that we love. I really wish they would listen with an open heart.

00:39:15--> 00:39:23

Because the position that you've been given is not because Mashallah you're a handsome men. This is an Amana from a lot.

00:39:27--> 00:39:29

Today, someone takes a seat.

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

He will not get off that seat until he dies.

00:39:36--> 00:39:39

Sometimes the whole budget is drowning.

00:39:41--> 00:39:45

Sure, what do you want him to do? Man, he's been there for the last 10 years who's going to move him now.

00:39:46--> 00:39:54

So he will happily watch the whole magic sink and the whole community suffer simply because I don't want to get off my chair.

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

Wait until you stand in front of Allah.

00:40:05--> 00:40:10

So I live in avatar, I mean, walking in the marketplace.

00:40:12--> 00:40:14

He finds his shoe.

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

He finds his shoe

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

in a thought

00:40:23--> 00:40:24

with a Jew

00:40:29--> 00:40:30

so he looks at the shield

00:40:31--> 00:40:32

first.

00:40:34--> 00:40:36

Then he's looking at the shield

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

and he noticed his marks you know, sometimes there's three iPhones.

00:40:43--> 00:40:47

But your eye knows exactly which one is yours. There's a mark there's a thing I remember when he

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

signs.

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

He picks up the shoe.

00:40:54--> 00:40:57

And he noticed this. This is my man.

00:40:59--> 00:40:59

He says

00:41:01--> 00:41:05

Where did you get this from? So did you say to me it's mine. I'm selling it.

00:41:08--> 00:41:10

This belongs to me it was stolen from me.

00:41:12--> 00:41:13

So now if there's a dispute

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

I asked you by Allah

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

does I live in a metallic need to ask anyone?

00:41:25--> 00:41:33

What if that was me as soon as I was convinced that it's mine, I will just hit him Habibi. I'm gonna take it with a you and your mom like it or not.

00:41:34--> 00:41:38

And if you don't like it cuz don't come just you and your mom but bring your family to

00:41:42--> 00:41:43

talking about

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

so now there's a dispute

00:41:51--> 00:41:58

and obviously they're not getting anywhere. My notes mine customer either could lie but I swear by law dada dada dada

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

Saladin avatar live system Fine.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

Let's go to the court.

00:42:09--> 00:42:11

You know, I talk to myself a lot.

00:42:13--> 00:42:14

I always think imagine you were that Jew

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

sorry, what?

00:42:19--> 00:42:26

You want me to get to a Muslim court? Stand in front of a Muslim judge that you appointed with your hand

00:42:27--> 00:42:32

and argue with him against Alibaba Vitaly, does that mean?

00:42:34--> 00:42:36

Have you been you must be on some good crack.

00:42:40--> 00:42:43

But look at the justice of Islam.

00:42:45--> 00:42:50

Hamas, obviously not getting anywhere. It's mine is the author. He says let's go to the judge.

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

So he says Fine, let's go to the judge.

00:42:54--> 00:42:56

They walk into the court.

00:42:57--> 00:43:01

Again, let me stop I have to I can't these these thoughts. They kill me.

00:43:03--> 00:43:04

Imagine you were the judge that morning.

00:43:07--> 00:43:18

What I needed what we need the men that appointed me. He's in the courtroom. I asked the judge not just against the judge.

00:43:24--> 00:43:26

But look at the justice of Islam.

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

The truth

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

said I walk in

00:43:33--> 00:43:35

magic Halina Vitali how he felt

00:43:37--> 00:43:38

I even need to jump

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

in as I walk in. I stand in front of the judge.

00:43:46--> 00:43:49

And I live in a big pile it gives his story.

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

He says a shield of mine was stolen.

00:43:54--> 00:44:03

I found the shield in the marketplace. This shield belongs to me. And the Jew claims it is it's mine at the end it was stolen from me and I wanted back

00:44:05--> 00:44:08

so the Muslim judge he says the system Oh Ali.

00:44:10--> 00:44:12

Do you have any proof? Do you have any evidence?

00:44:15--> 00:44:22

Imagine having to ask I live in avatar limb that I need evidence to prove what you're saying to me.

00:44:26--> 00:44:37

Some of us we don't dare to look at fathers in the eye. Imagine having to stand in front of Alibaba Vitaly and tell him I need proof of your claim.

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

Deen is not easy.

00:44:46--> 00:44:50

And being people of the truth is not as glamorous as what you think.

00:44:52--> 00:44:54

People have the truth or disliked

00:44:55--> 00:44:57

because they challenge the status quo.

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

We don't like to challenge the status quo.

00:45:06--> 00:45:12

just just just leave it man things are working just we don't want to please don't don't shake the cage.

00:45:14--> 00:45:15

We love these movies.

00:45:19--> 00:45:21

So Selena Vitaly says, Yes, I have proof.

00:45:24--> 00:45:24

The judge is thinking,

00:45:27--> 00:45:31

is this man What is your proof? He says to him, I have a weakness.

00:45:33--> 00:45:37

He says, man, who is your weakness? He says, My son and Hussein

00:45:39--> 00:45:41

can they be a better witness on earth?

00:45:45--> 00:45:47

Can they be better? And Hussein

00:45:48--> 00:45:50

or the Lord Allah is a witness to the

00:45:52--> 00:45:54

so the judge says the immune system

00:45:57--> 00:46:00

you know that I can't take your son as a weakness.

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

And if that is the only evidence you have,

00:46:10--> 00:46:13

then unfortunately, I have to rule against you.

00:46:18--> 00:46:19

I have to

00:46:20--> 00:46:22

I have to rule against you.

00:46:24--> 00:46:27

I did anyone to speak to his chef like this.

00:46:28--> 00:46:30

Go Go. I did.

00:46:31--> 00:46:33

We claim deed it is

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

pleasing.

00:46:38--> 00:46:41

We are so rotten inside a lie. Forgive me.

00:46:44--> 00:46:45

On to her.

00:46:49--> 00:46:50

So the Jews

00:46:53--> 00:46:56

looking in absolute amazement.

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

And what the hell just happened?

00:47:01--> 00:47:13

I walked into a Muslim court in front of a Muslim judge against the Amir of the Muslims and the Jews. And the judge ruled against the amine without even asking me a single question.

00:47:18--> 00:47:20

He says, oh, Judge,

00:47:21--> 00:47:22

I confess

00:47:24--> 00:47:29

what I've seen today in front of my very eyes I've never seen before in my life.

00:47:32--> 00:47:36

The Justice that took place in front of my eyes I've never seen before.

00:47:37--> 00:47:47

This shield really does belong to Him. And I bear witness that La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah.

00:47:56--> 00:48:00

Sometimes you make a mistake at home, you're a married man, you make a mistake.

00:48:05--> 00:48:06

And your wife is in the right, bro.

00:48:10--> 00:48:13

Yeah, but last time when I'm asking you about last time.

00:48:15--> 00:48:16

Your wife is in the right.

00:48:18--> 00:48:21

BNN apologize and move on.

00:48:23--> 00:48:26

No, no, no, no, no, we will not apologize.

00:48:33--> 00:48:36

In one of our mother's assets back home in Sydney.

00:48:40--> 00:48:47

And look, again, it's very sticky situations and I'm not attacking our man. And I know it's but what I'm really hurt.

00:48:48--> 00:48:53

Because we put on this facade that we're religious, you know. But when push comes to shove,

00:48:55--> 00:48:57

we had a young boy he was doing

00:49:00--> 00:49:02

and I don't know why for whatever reason.

00:49:04--> 00:49:09

The chef, the teacher didn't like the student. I don't know the history. I really don't care what the history was.

00:49:12--> 00:49:14

And it was always bickering back and forward, you know.

00:49:15--> 00:49:18

So one day in this place.

00:49:20--> 00:49:22

One of the students had gone into the bathroom

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

and

00:49:27--> 00:49:31

increased us in rink. He puts feces on the walls of the bathroom.

00:49:33--> 00:49:35

playing a prank whatever it was.

00:49:37--> 00:49:38

When they asked Who was it?

00:49:41--> 00:49:43

The chef said it was him definitely.

00:49:45--> 00:49:47

Now the kids are devil. There's no doubt.

00:49:50--> 00:49:53

But the shirt was so adamant that it was him.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

And the kid cried his eyes out while like it wasn't me one line this and that.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

It was him

00:50:04--> 00:50:07

until they expelled him from the madrasa.

00:50:09--> 00:50:11

Then when it caused a lot of problems,

00:50:13--> 00:50:15

we went back to the camera footage

00:50:16--> 00:50:19

and discovered that it wasn't him it was someone else.

00:50:24--> 00:50:29

So we came back to the chef who said, Look, it's okay, we understand you're a teacher, you're an Imam

00:50:31--> 00:50:33

cheerfully accused the kid and it wasn't him. And,

00:50:34--> 00:50:37

of course, the big fuss and the father and expel the kid.

00:50:38--> 00:50:42

Apologize and let's move on. Guess what? He refused.

00:50:48--> 00:50:51

Then the body of the machine sided with the chef.

00:50:55--> 00:51:01

I said, Man, the kid is innocent. You accused him. You expelled him from the school.

00:51:02--> 00:51:18

Apologize and move on man. I'm not telling you to just apologize. just the sheer mere apology. Now we can't do that. Because if we do that, then he breaks the back of the chair. Then his reputation is taken and all this nonsense and trash.

00:51:21--> 00:51:22

The kid never came back.

00:51:26--> 00:51:28

Whose side are you on?

00:51:31--> 00:51:33

when push comes to shove, who do you stand with?

00:51:37--> 00:51:38

Lay my brothers Much has been said.

00:51:41--> 00:51:42

Being an honest person.

00:51:44--> 00:51:46

doesn't make you famous.

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

doesn't give you much friends either.

00:51:55--> 00:51:58

But if you want to be with if you want to be with Allah and His Prophet,

00:52:01--> 00:52:09

then there will come a point in your life where you will have to be prepared to sacrifice everyone, even your mother and your child and everyone for our last season.

00:52:11--> 00:52:13

We speak the heart No matter what the price is.

00:52:17--> 00:52:18

Because the hearts of people

00:52:21--> 00:52:24

are in between the hands of Allah and he turns them as he pleases.

00:52:28--> 00:52:31

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who are truthful.

00:52:33--> 00:52:41

And you ask him to make us of those who stand with the heart No matter what the cost. Y'all open our eyes and open our hearts

00:52:42--> 00:52:46

and restore our loyalty and our commitment only to you and your profit and your dean.

00:52:48--> 00:52:49

Y'all accept us except that

00:52:50--> 00:53:08
