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

Okay, our next speaker

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

well I've been dreading this moment.

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

shotkam ELLs 3020 years shabda Salim the founder of measure the synergy of the neurons he was in the shop on my right How did he end up?

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

Can I kindly ask before we start manage couple of minutes if I can ask everyone to get up Stand up have a bit of a stretch or maybe give them to the brother next year and then inshallah we'll sit back down two minutes inshallah just a quick Get up. have a bit of a stretch a bit of a stretch.

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

By Yella Yella Bismillah Bismillah inshallah Bismillah

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

Bismillah inshallah Come on guys if we just sit back down and shall

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

we just sit back down?

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

Well, it may Allah subhanho wa Taala reward you you guys have all been patient, you've all been patient.

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

Like no

00:01:22--> 00:01:55

malice, if we can just be patient inshallah, Mashallah most of you, you know, you've been in for quite some time, but at the very least as a as an incentive loida by the end of the gathering, Allah has forgiven your sins and what else do you want? What a way to start the month of Ramadan? Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah I'll try to be quick my brothers and sisters as much as I can. Look, Allah subhanho wa Taala in multiple places in the Quran, multiple areas Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds the human being that Oh son of man, take shape on as your enemy

00:01:57--> 00:02:18

you know for Allah He can say something once and let's see we understand the needs in the Quran. If he made it to the Quran, we understand its importance. Take him as an enemy. He is a sworn enemy. Don't follow shaytaan don't follow the whispers of shaitan Allah goes to the extent saying don't follow the footsteps of shaitan again and again don't follow Watch out take him as an enemy.

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

It's probably thinking the watts shaitan got to do the month of Ramadan.

00:02:25--> 00:02:30

Almost every share has mentioned that you know come the month of Ramadan shaitan is trained the way

00:02:31--> 00:02:38

the reality is my brother's shaitan has worked for centuries on this oma and he has worked for centuries

00:02:39--> 00:02:43

to destroy every goodness we have in this Deen.

00:02:44--> 00:03:01

I'll tell you what I'm talking about. You know, Al Hamdulillah. I was quite fortunate. That just a few weeks ago we were in Amara and ask Allah Subhana Allah to make this possible for everyone. So we they were in Amara imagine, you know you're in the Holy of the holy, the Holy of the holy was sitting in front of the Kaaba,

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

front of the Kaaba.

00:03:06--> 00:03:17

You don't like this this moment, you know, anyone that's been there knows what I'm talking about. He's sitting in front of this. It's just epic in every sense of the word.

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

And then the then goes off

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

magine if the Kaabah shaitan has not left alone.

00:03:27--> 00:03:37

So then the other end goes off. And then I see people stand up and they pulling out their phones and I can talk about the phone all day long. But I'm thinking you know, it's a special moment, let it be.

00:03:39--> 00:03:51

So they pulling out the phones and they standing in front of the camera and then as soon as the event goes off, instead of looking at the cable or recording the gavel, they turn to the sides and they start recording this clock tower building.

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

I just think oh my heart man.

00:03:58--> 00:04:44

Even the Kaaba is not enough for the hearts of the believers. This clock tower this monstrosity of a building. And tonight I'm not here to speak about halal or haram. I'm not speaking about halal and haram but just just for a moment, think deep with me. If I'm standing in front of the Kaaba, if I one of the very few fortunate people looked as almost 2 billion people, almost 2 billion Muslims on Earth. Very few are selected and allowed to stand in front of the Kaaba. You're even at that moment while the other one is being called. Muslims have turned and they're recording this clock tower and you should see their eyes Look brother Look, it's glittering it's turning green.

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

I think you bro you're standing in front of the Kaaba

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

shaytaan has worked endlessly. We go to Medina imagine Medina measured the number with the Holy of the holy, the Holy of the holy you're in Medina.

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

Imagine a place imagine a place the Prophet chose to die in.

00:05:09--> 00:05:21

You walk in to measure it another way. Look at hamdulillah I'm fortunate that I take you know young guys youth and and you walk into the masjid This is the masjid that changed the world.

00:05:22--> 00:05:38

Measure the neighbor way, is the masjid that changed the course of history for life. Yet we walk into the masjid and shaitan has left no stone unturned. You walk into the masjid again I'm not speaking about halal and haram

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

and the wearing all of the carpet

00:05:44--> 00:05:51

of the pillars of the electric domes that open and close and are and people pull out their phones and look shaken.

00:05:53--> 00:06:11

And our hearts are connected not to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not to the land where gibreel descended 1000s of times to being done and to speak to the Prophet the hope no no no no no no no. the hearts of the Muslims has gone away.

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

Every time I go someone asks his brother how many pillars Do you think there's in measure the nabawi

00:06:21--> 00:07:04

so shaitan has left no stone unturned and unfortunately he's done the same with Ramadan. You might think about Baba shaitan is trained up in the month of Ramadan Let me tell you my brothers shaitan has been working 11 months he actually needs the full weeks off. He's more than happy to take the month of Ramadan off. He's been winding us up so long. You know like There used to be a phase the fidget spinner you know the fidget spinner, the more you spin up, what happens to it the more you spin then when you let it go it runs for longer Habibi shaitan has been spinning you and I for 11 months of the sacrum Ramadan him and his mates they're kicking back and watch this guy go over

00:07:06--> 00:07:25

and you're gone for six gone for six and one more It breaks my heart It boggles the mind. How has cython been so successful in changing the Ramadan that the self and the Prophet and the companions used the long form

00:07:27--> 00:07:36

to this you know that companies look in measure the number we measured the number you when normal hubbub came into rule came in the power of a lot of

00:07:37--> 00:08:19

time was like it's not in our history as the golden era of Islam that's that's the pain after the death of Fabio just things were never the same. So in his time, obviously slime is growing. So now the companions came pressure was there, it was necessary to do what to expand the machine another way they had to do it. And you know, was one of those very specific people you know, he is the monitor the hearts of Marley's. Anyway, so now they've expanded the measure. That's a sign of growth. It's a sign of success, mentioned the Prophet's mosque. they've expanded that money is coming in. Now the companions, they're debating amongst each other, on who has the heart, who has

00:08:19--> 00:08:34

the courage to go to the pub, and suggest no copper, no chandeliers? No electric dorms? No, no, no who is brave enough to suggest that we should put some paint on the walls?

00:08:36--> 00:08:55

So Bob says Over my dead body, what was his the lien? What was his thinking? What was the wisdom, he said, I see the color of the walls, maybe just maybe a distraction and a fitna for the hearts of the believers.

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

So you look at electric domes and you're in all

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

the pain the walls,

00:09:04--> 00:09:17

because he knew how seeker hearts were hell just for the love of Allah someone explained to me how has shaped on turn the month of fasting into the month of feasting.

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

Someone please explain.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

The month of eating less

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

has become the month of throwing food away.

00:09:34--> 00:09:50

The halal and haram I'm not here to debate the Messiah here. I'm not a chef at all. I'm here to speak. But just think with me. How has the month of fasting How has he been so successful into turning it into the month of feasting?

00:09:52--> 00:09:58

is haram to a lower law it's not haram to eat. But brother I asked you by Allah is this what Ramadan is about

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

You want to see the condition of the Muslims go to an A star with the food these late

00:10:11--> 00:10:44

Bella chef Bella balut bro Where the hell is the food? But Allah he'd have ordered the food the brothers stuck in the car who's the more that's driving brother does he know I should know when she was speaking to her nephew that we see the moon then the moon then the moon two consecutive months two consecutive months it's longer than two consecutive months she said there was no boiling no cooking Not a single flame was lit in any of the mine houses of rasulillah for two consecutive months.

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

So all we're asked how did you eat? How did you survive? She said that

00:10:53--> 00:11:04

if a homeowner didn't want to put paint on the walls because he lest it should be what would have happened to the Prophet if he seen the way we deal with breaking our fasts

00:11:07--> 00:11:20

explained to me how the month of fasting has become the month of feasting. Explain. Can you see shape all over it or not? Really there are foods that are only made in Ramadan

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

and we've accepted that

00:11:24--> 00:11:28

there are sweets they only made urine if you went on the day of

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

Ramadan

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

who's behind the

00:11:37--> 00:11:48

who's behind Allah keep you busy. Look, shaitan couldn't stop me from standing in front of the Kaaba. But he could take my heart and my eyes away to look at the clock

00:11:50--> 00:11:56

shaitan couldn't stop you from fasting but oxen Billa is gonna take every opportunity to distract human.

00:11:57--> 00:12:01

Let him feast. Let him eat like monsters.

00:12:03--> 00:12:07

Go to any one of these you know, not last year the before my wife sent me buy bread the day before.

00:12:09--> 00:12:14

I wasn't thinking I'm gonna buy bread. I walked into the guy. I walked in.

00:12:15--> 00:12:27

He looked at me and no Brother, what are you smoking bread? Habibi, mahalo, sesame seed. Nothing, nothing less. I polished the shop. So I thought well, no, he asked him. Are you close tomorrow? Yes, I'm open.

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

Consumer.

00:12:31--> 00:12:48

Consumer business owners prepay. Look, the sellers prepare for six months for Ramadan. Trust me Our Muslim business owners also do the same, but they're not preparing like them. They're like containers, containers, shops open in Ramadan and then they close when

00:12:50--> 00:12:55

explained to me how the month of fasting has become the month of feasting

00:12:58--> 00:13:05

and trends trends. It's the haraam please don't come to me brother you say no, no, no, it's not Haram. But can you see shaitan all over it or not?

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

So because

00:13:09--> 00:13:14

breaking a fast wasn't enough. What did shaitan have to do? He brought out trends.

00:13:15--> 00:13:21

A few years ago we had this we'll see But the man called the camel burger. Were you aware of it?

00:13:23--> 00:13:32

Two minutes how's that fair? The camel burger was the maceda that hit the Muslims in the 1000 stood in rows

00:13:33--> 00:14:05

the camel we became brother I heard if he can we need to make will do before and after. A gentleman in the area. Campbell burgers Shannon in the area. It's not her on one lines. But why in this month? Why was this the month that the oma was obsessed with camels. Then when camels became the norm? What happened to him I became the de when the DEA became the norm last year was the rather the Australian wildlife has become petrified of the month of Ramadan because no one knows who's on the menu next.

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

No One No one knows who's up next.

00:14:10--> 00:14:18

You're petrified if it's not camels and burgers and donkeys and whatever we're eating what it's cocktails again one light

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

but I asked you by Allah is this Ramadan?

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

Is this Ramadan

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

and shaitan has food and people love it brother Thank you like the my life Thank you like the bus. You know my brothers the nights of Ramadan are holier than it's days Did you know that the nights of Ramadan are small special, the deeper the best time of the year in when but the best 10 days of the of of the AMA in Ramadan indicating that the nights of Ramadan are far more special. So what has shaitan done? What has he done? You know, have you seen Have you seen in our communities what has done

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

Hold on become now it's become this nightlife it's become this one

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

has become the new Kings Cross.

00:15:08--> 00:15:32

Not Kings Cross in the sense of the prostitution or the blood. No, no, no no. What do I mean by the new Kings Cross? It's the place of you know in the 90s in the 80s. And this by the way, where do you go to party you got to Kings Cross now we've got the new Kings Cross and it's called the camber helden shriek the camber Allahu Akbar it's the bus it's the place to be is to be the one why it's Muharram but I'm asking you is the one of more wants

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

were complaining that the brother is leaving 20

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

but you're standing for 25 minutes that

00:15:46--> 00:15:56

is not a problem it's not a problem so the might life and brother you know even the more Muslims are in Do you think the more Muslims are coming because what are they learning about a law

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

Again I'm not this is my personal opinion I'm not saying this is the I believe this is the food of shaitan definitely Why Why? I'll tell you this food it's an amazing food. It is beautiful. Absolutely why because it's satanic It's beautiful. So this food How does it work? I'll tell you how it works if you let them eat you know what i'm on about so what happens is our wives they call six seven of the friends that come over six seven of the friends These are the people who don't have time for call and we don't have time to fix we don't have time

00:17:49--> 00:17:54

Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need you. A Lost Planet. Allah doesn't need your Salah. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need your fasting. Allah subhanaw taala doesn't need your money. Allah smart, Allah doesn't need your time. Don't be fooled. You're missing. A bad boy who says he looks at his clothes and his watch and the car he drives. Then he judges where he fits in society. People walking around with an attitude and no surprise, I don't have to fast or even worse. I'd be fasting you know, for 10 years. Pray for 10 years backup. Allah doesn't give me this is this arrogance out of your heart. All are all dead. Nothing moves. Nothing stopped. Nothing rises and nothing falls.

00:24:22--> 00:24:25

Nothing hams and nothing benefits.
