The only faith with Allah is Islam.

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

Islam and this is the greatest honor there is no greater gift. Nothing. Nothing is greater. You can have all the Nam all the blessings of this world be fame, money. Whatever you like right I don't care what it is, but you're deprived of faith in Allah

00:00:26--> 00:00:50

What do you have? Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah but a cattle on this episode I'm joined with my two favorite people from one path network rather than Muhammad hub loss. Genuinely one of my most favorite people and McCain. How are you guys feeling? Man? It's so good to have you genuinely, I genuinely mean that. Looking at me like I'm making this up. I genuinely mean my last pantalla reward you.

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

Thank you so you only have one to pick from So

00:00:55--> 00:00:55

does that.

00:00:58--> 00:01:37

Hold on, I would like to welcome McKeen. Thank you. Okay, Big Mac that refuses to use a Mac on fourth. Yeah, that Mac daddy and that. So what we want to speak about today is actually we'll get straight into it. When we say what is Islam, the first thing people want to speak about is Islam is a religion of charity. It's a religion of generosity. It's a religion of being kind to your parents. It's a religion of being a good person in your community. And while all this is is fair and true, and and and rightfully needs to be said, there's something that we're missing when it comes to our da and that is known if it speaks about the fact that Islam is a religion that believes in the

00:01:37--> 00:02:23

unseen or we might speak about it, but we don't necessarily give it its justice. You know, we read the Quran you open up source Al Baqarah. The first description Allah subhanho wa Taala, he gives up the McDuck in of the pious people of the believers. He says alladhina You mean I've been hype? The first characteristic Allah gives of the believers, he says, those that believe in the unseen yet, I guess this discussion is somewhat absent in today's dollar. Do you guys agree with what I'm saying? or? Yeah, I guess, I do agree. We live in a world where Seeing is believing. So more and more enough, I can't see it. If I can't touch it, then therefore, people don't tend to believe in it. But

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

as a Muslim

00:02:25--> 00:03:07

Eman faith in the unseen is core. Like we know from the famous Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When Amara de la Talon who he narrates this Hadith, it's an incredible Hadith. He says, we were sitting with the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam when a man a man appeared. So this man was later on. We were told that later on this man was jabril Allahu Salaam, and he came in the form of a human being. So Omar says, we were sitting there, and the man appeared, and he came into the gathering. And he sat right in front of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and he asked him, Bernie handle Islam, he says, told me about Islam. And then we get the famous five pillars of Islam. And

00:03:07--> 00:03:13

then the very next question was Bernie, and Eamon told me about faith, even

00:03:15--> 00:03:29

on the very famous where he gave the six pillars of faith, and taught me Nabila, he was really he wakatobi in a to believe in Allah, his prophets, His angels, his books, the day of judgment, and the decree of Allah.

00:03:30--> 00:03:31


00:03:32--> 00:03:41

Most of them are unseen, if not all of them, right? Even the dry leave that it's exactly so Allah. We can't see

00:03:42--> 00:03:49

the profits. We can't see the angels. We can't see the books with the exception.

00:03:50--> 00:04:32

The books I guess we can see that's what Abu Bakar said when Raj came to me says, I believe that these books are coming from the heavens, you know, yeah, unseen, right? The Day of Judgment is unseen. And the decree of Allah I guess we do see this. But so you find that the vast majority of faith Eman in Allah is based on unseen and I guess, I feel like the embarrassment or the hesitation to openly say we believe in the unseen I guess it is an hour it's a it's an embarrassing thing. But it's made to look as an embarrassing thing. We constantly hear that, you know, that claim by people that don't believe they'll say, Oh, you believe in a God that you can't see, you might as well

00:04:32--> 00:04:43

believe in a flying spaghetti monster or something like that. And we're constantly I guess, targeted because of this belief in the unseen so I guess that's probably one of the reasons why we move away. I feel that

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

the term faith has been hijacked.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

You know, someone tells me Do you believe in God, the first question I asked him is, what do you mean, when you say what do you do you believe in God which god are you talking about? Also?

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


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

is it your idea of God? Or is it my idea of God?

00:05:06--> 00:05:22

So it's like God knew when when a Christian asked me you believe in God, I'm very hesitant to answer, right? So it's like, Are you talking about the same, the same God in the in the paintings in the right chapels, or you're talking about

00:05:23--> 00:05:34

what the God that I believe in. And I think words are very important here. And the understanding of those words, people need to be careful how they how they actually explained that.

00:05:35--> 00:06:09

They can't just go up to a random person and ask them these questions you need to be sit down and have a conversation. It's not if you're not if you don't have any perspective, when you look at the Shahada, either, it starts off by saying there is no God, you know, these definitions of God negating it starts by negating, and then affirming Yeah, which in Arabic is the strongest form of right to negate ler Illa Allah denies anything and everything worthy of worship

00:06:10--> 00:06:17

Illa mala except Allah, Allah, but you know what I would like to add to what you're saying, Camille, that

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

I feel Muslims try to.

00:06:22--> 00:06:26

With good intent. We try to display Islam

00:06:27--> 00:06:51

in a manner that is pleasing to others, where people will say that Islam means peace. Yeah, that's the famous one. Right? And while Yes, on the surface, that's very nice. And I feel like I understand what people are trying to do that Islam is a very peaceful religion and, and look, we're not here to harm anyone, and we're not here to sort of destroy you. So

00:06:53--> 00:07:00

right, yeah, you know, so you just want everyone around you to just look guys come down, come down. And but the reality is, Islam

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

does not mean peace. Islam is a faith based on submission.

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

Right, that once someone comes to the conclusion, that there is a God, Allah, and that this person believes in his prophets and these six pillars of faith, and then someone takes that testimony of faith, right.

00:07:25--> 00:07:40

Then once this person does that, he now becomes a Muslim. Meaning I have submitted now I know this word, it tends to have like a negative connotation. He told me he submitted like in UFC, right? Yeah.

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

Or submitted it seems like

00:07:45--> 00:08:22

it seems like you've been in a row chokehold overpowered or and it's actually not the case. But in Islam, Islam means submission. And those that submit, they called Muslims. And I have submitted to Allah, the old seeing the old knowing the old, powerful, the Almighty, right, I have submitted as a Muslim, I have submitted everything to Allah as per my life, my whims, my desires, my thoughts, it is all to Allah.

00:08:23--> 00:08:41

And this doesn't, unfortunately, it's not working well in the 21st century, because people are not knowing how to. So therefore I find Muslims shy away from certain topics because you're embarrassed because we're either either they're not equipped.

00:08:42--> 00:09:04

And just so we don't scare people away, all right, yes, it does mean submission. It's through the submission, you can actually get peace. See what I've just done? Yeah, no, of course, but but it actually says in the code anyway. Yeah. But you see, that doesn't actually those that submit to Allah, you know, even Muslims need to hear the snare, those who, those who truly submit to Allah,

00:09:05--> 00:09:06


00:09:07--> 00:09:41

They will find peace and happiness, peace, happiness, tranquility, there's actually a beautiful verse in the Quran. It says, through the Quran, the healer, humanitarian worker who Subala Salaam, Allah says in the Quran, about the Quran, He will guide those who seek His pleasure, to the paths of peace. So spela just by submitting yourself to Allah seeking His pleasure, you will attain that peace. So yeah, while we're saying it is a dean, it is a religion of submission to Allah. Essentially, it's for your own good.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

But we're too embarrassed, I guess, say it like it is what why the embarrassment is there to be honest, because, you know, in the 21st century, you know, we so we're so ready to submit to our employees. We're so ready to submit to the law. We're so ready to admit to our family

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

But the panela when we when you say when we say to submit to your Lord, what a beautiful thing

00:10:06--> 00:10:12

that's that's so good and and then you say submit your Lord and only you know,

00:10:13--> 00:10:36

it suddenly becomes a point of contention. Salaam Alaikum sorry to pause the podcast, I would just like to take this opportunity to thank this episode's sponsor, Muslim aid Australia. If you're looking for anyone to donate through this Ramadan, let it be m A Australia's trusted charity. Let's get back to the podcast. It's in the nature of men to submit

00:10:37--> 00:10:58

one law it's in the nature of men to submit. It's in the nature of men to want to replicate. So you find be a follower to be a follower, right? So you find that as Muslims, our everything is based around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a mimicking him copying him trying to.

00:10:59--> 00:11:37

And many people challenge this new Why do I have to do that? Why do I have to do this? And you know, and so what if this is what the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam did, right? So you find this, but then this very same person has no problems whatsoever with dressing up exactly like his favorite cartoon character, or character What what? Allah, whatever it may be cartoon character, his superhero, right? men? Actually, I remember growing up how many people replica, I don't know if I'm using the right word, right? But would but would imitate, you know, like, famous singers that would learn the dance moves.

00:11:38--> 00:11:48

The clothes, right? Verse by, right. And they, and as bizarre as he was, he was socially accepted. In fact, people, people found that

00:11:50--> 00:12:02

fun and entertaining to watch. And that it was accepted because they could understand the love and the passion that this person has put, right because of their love for that particular entertainer.

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

And as Muslims, we do that with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:12:09--> 00:12:15

when you're in love with someone, or you want to do is please that person.

00:12:16--> 00:12:53

We're living in a time I guess, as you said, 2020 everyone is just about themselves. And I guess they feel that when they follow these celebrities are this is liberating for me, this is you know, I'm bracing myself my individuality. I'm, I'm being who I am and who I want to be. But the truth is, you know, if we just follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam you will fight you will taste true liberation, if you if you just submit yourself to Allah subhanaw taala you will taste that liberation, because you're no longer a slave to the shackles of you know, consumerism, entertainment, or whatever your desires lead you down. That's the panel. I also feel like and I'm

00:12:53--> 00:13:02

very hesitant in saying this word. And I don't want to cast any generalizations, but I do feel like there is somewhat of a inferiority complex going round.

00:13:04--> 00:13:11

What would you say? Like it's embarrassing, but I feel like my comment didn't meet McCain, would you like to comment on this, please?

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

I'm not going to say like, I don't want to be like casting shadow or shade on anyone right now. But what I'm trying to say is like, maybe there's a trinkle maybe there's just a little, you know, a little shade, that we've somehow feel that, you know, we're not good enough until we're like the other. When in fact, sapan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala says quantum higher omitting or rejecting you, you you, you already are the best, you know, as long as you believe in a line and enjoying God forbid evil, you are the best. So why should we feel like we have that, you know, that defeated mentality or I'm not good enough. You know, brother, sister, you are good enough, because our last

00:13:52--> 00:14:19

panel data told you, you're good enough. You're from the best, you are the best of nations. Pamela, and that's one of the things that I would love. One law, I pray to Allah that He restores this in the oma, this honor, as he says Rama liability that you are of not UI, this, Allah subhanho wa Taala. The only faith with Allah is Islam.

00:14:21--> 00:14:41

Islam and this is the greatest honor, there is no greater gift. Nothing. Nothing is greater. You can have all the Nam all the blessings of this world, be it fame, money, whatever you like, right? I don't care what it is. But you're deprived of faith in Allah.

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

What do you have?

00:14:46--> 00:14:55

What do you have, you know, so to be a Muslim, to be a follower of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's honor it's as

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

and Muslims have this

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

And it's like it's not enough.

00:15:03--> 00:15:45

Right there is this inferior, you know, this complex? You know, how will people perceive me? How will people see me? How will it doesn't matter what people see and what people think if you're doing the right thing, if I'm doing what Allah has told me to do, then it doesn't matter how I look, because what is accepted socially today is going to change by tomorrow, may not be socially accepted tomorrow, you know, we will look just before when we were speaking about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and loving his son and doing, I feel that in, you know, if you were to do that, so much will be taken off your shoulders, because it doesn't change. Right? Like if I was to follow the fashion

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

industry, you can never keep up.

00:15:48--> 00:16:03

You can never ever keep up. Right? Any industry that you try to keep up with, it's impossible. But whereas with Islam, and with the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, it's simple, it's achievable. It's not tiring, it doesn't exhaust you. It's not expensive.

00:16:05--> 00:16:13

Right? Anything else is going to exhaust you. But the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it honors, and it elevates you.

00:16:14--> 00:16:55

And I think the most beautiful thing about that is, when you're seeking the pleasure of Allah, it's unlike seeking the pleasure of men. Because men, when you constantly try to please them by following their trends, and doing everything they tell you to do, they're never going to be pleased with you. alliances in the Quran, you know, many of many of the people they don't give thanks. And so why are we trying to follow people who are not grateful to begin with, rather follow Allah, and I say this as advice for myself, you know, seek the pleasure of Allah, a shekel, the one who is, you know, it's extremely thankful, or the best word for that to his servants, to those who seek His pleasure. And

00:16:55--> 00:16:58

that's not really the problem with people who don't,

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

you know, do something

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

in their life.

00:17:05--> 00:17:26

So why are they doing? Well, if they can only mean a couple of options, really just a gratitude thing, or whatever. Now, whenever you do something good, and you're getting and you're and you're looking for gratitude, then what happens if the person doesn't give you that? Then your actions are meaningless, meaning that

00:17:27--> 00:17:31

there's no purpose, you're left disheartened. Exactly. And that's why there's

00:17:33--> 00:17:37

no happiness, because you know, you're trying to take something that's

00:17:39--> 00:17:51

going to fail, you're going to fail, whereas, whereas for the Muslim, he doesn't do his, he does his action not seeking any thanks, or any rewards from anyone? other than Allah?

00:17:53--> 00:17:55

Well, not the honor. And as

00:17:56--> 00:18:05

of La Ilaha, Illa Allah. Yeah. And it's unfortunate because we, you know, we opened up this podcast with belief in the unseen

00:18:06--> 00:18:16

this word, this kalama, this testimony this way of life, when, but unfortunate, because we can't see if you knew its value and its weight.

00:18:17--> 00:18:23

What it means to Allah, what this testimony will this

00:18:25--> 00:18:34

Bro, I can't even find the words on the day of judgment when you stand in front of Allah. The only key that will open the door of Jannah.

00:18:36--> 00:18:52

Islam Allah and Allah, that is it. And you haven't, you haven't? Yes, maybe it's not where you want it to be. And maybe it's fine. We've all got shortcomings, and we will have missed, I understand that. But you have the, you have the seed.

00:18:54--> 00:19:04

People will, Allah, it's been said before that if the kings of this world knew what we have, they'll fight us, they would fight you, because they looking for that.

00:19:05--> 00:19:09

They're looking for that this test of this layer, ilaha illa, Allah,

00:19:10--> 00:19:31

the weight of it. It's incredible power. And this is supposed to empower you. empower youth, this person that you are afraid of this person that we have this inferiority come you know that how are they perceiving me on the Day of Judgment, if you believe in the unseen, he's going to wish that he was you.

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

Just imagine that the happiness for the one who believed in the unseen imagine the happiness on his face on that day in the one on two anymore like in his RV, I knew this day, I knew this day was coming. Imagine the happiness this person had. And here we are right now saying, Oh, you know, we're not really that confident to say that this is what we believe in went on that day. This belief is that is your sales, it's your salvation. It's your salvation on that day. But even like on

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

Saying that how liberating is this belief in the unseen, it frees you from the shackles of this world. And as well it just reminded me of this Hadith, I guess which sent centers around the belief in the unseen. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he illustrates it to us so, so perfectly. He says, giving in charity does not decrease your wealth. This is unsafe spiral. He says, No one humbles himself. except Allah raises him. This is unsafe. This is all about you know, ignoring the worldly means ignoring the worldly suburb. And this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling you something which will physically counter whatever you're trying to to

00:20:43--> 00:20:55

attain. If you're trying to make money. You don't give in charity, what is that? But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, giving charity, it will increase your wealth. You want to be someone of honor and

00:20:56--> 00:21:10

be someone who walks around like a macho man, be someone who puts down other people that will give you on his butt, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he saying, ignore the physical manifestation of things and do the complete opposite. Humble yourself. Allah will raise you.

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

How beautiful is that? And that's, and that's a man. And this is why it is

00:21:18--> 00:21:29

crucially important that we work on our faith. A man is of two things faith, it's either going up or down. A man is never stationary.

00:21:31--> 00:22:17

Never. Right. So either you find yourself I'm dropping in faith. I'm dropping in Amen. And amen does not if I'm low on him, and that does not mean that I don't believe in Allah. Sometimes people get that mistaken. It's not the case. Right? I could be a Muslim, I believe in Allah and His Prophet. But my Eman, my faith is down. Right? I don't pray, I don't fast. You know, I'm doing these acts of worship. They are to increase your Eman. It increases your faith. It increases your ability to believe in the unseen. So giving in charity, okay, the more you do it, it will increase your faith in the unseen and belief in the unseen is so important. You know, I'm sure you've heard how many

00:22:17--> 00:22:24

times have you heard someone say, the boy doesn't unlock just show us lift the veil, right? That if Allah you know,

00:22:25--> 00:23:08

Allah doesn't even have to show you a full Angel. Just half an angel. Okay, show me half an angel. Show me one wing of gibreel? I never. But that's, that's not what Allah is after. Because if Allah wanted Allah could have. Allah could have done this. That's actually what Ben Israel asked. No, sir. He said, we want to say Allah, right? You know, but what separates? What separates you from the rest? Is this crucial element? Is your belief in the unseen? Why do people work so hard and invest so much into their work or their business or their careers, because I can literally and physically see and touch my rewards. But because I cannot see the reward of my prayer, and the reward of my

00:23:08--> 00:23:16

charity, and the reward of being good money, and all these noble things? I'm complacent. Right? But if you were to see then you will do

00:23:17--> 00:23:28

even I guess, it goes back to that Hadees What are you saying? You open this podcast on the hadith of gibreel? You know, what is Islam? What is he man? workability annaliesa? What does he say?

00:23:30--> 00:24:02

worship Allah. Yeah, so you can start with the law, as though you can see him. And this is this is the highest level, this is the peak that we ask Allah to let us get to that peak where we can worship you as Oh, we can see you as though you know, we were physically you know, worshipping you and we can see the reward, we can see the desert, we can see that this is definitely going to have a positive outcome for me. And when you reach that level, menu fly, and that's what we ask a lot to, like, allow us to get that sn in our lives, because it's so important.

00:24:03--> 00:24:13

I was having lunch with a friend of mine. And he does lots of dabble with non Muslims. So we're sitting there and I said to him, cuz I'm really in order of what he does.

00:24:14--> 00:24:55

I said to mean, how do you do what you do? He said, No, I was gonna ask you the same thing. I said to him, I can stand in front of a million people and talk, not a problem, so long as they're Muslims. I said, Put me in front of one non Muslim. I don't know why I guess I'm just not equipped. I always think that they assume certain things or that he's already judged me particular way. And I don't want to destroy my opportunity. So I'm very hesitant. I mean, I would love to speak with non Muslims. I would love Allah. Allah is my witness. I would love nothing more than to have a genuine open discussion and let them rip everything that's in their heart out and by Allah I would. I would

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

love that. But anyway, neither. You know. Maybe that's for another day.

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

But I was saying to me, and how do you deal with non Muslims in any so good at it right? And he goes, I said to me, I would be petrified. Like, how do you answer when I asked you about the niqab?

00:25:12--> 00:25:15

Or Jihad? Or? Right, like, you know,

00:25:16--> 00:25:21

right, yeah. You know, like your typical controversial things or the misconception or whatever.

00:25:22--> 00:25:26

And then he looked at me nice, man, they the easiest ones. He was

00:25:28--> 00:25:58

hell, like, how was it easy? Like, how do you? Because, you know, if I was able to convince someone about the headscarf, I know what the next question is going to be? And then if I answer that, then you know what the next he said to me, You never answer those questions. Something. So what are you doing? Like, are you dodging? Yeah. Is it me? No. He said, Because exactly that he said, If I answer that, then it's gonna be this. And then he and then he goes before you know what, I'll be there all day try. He said to me, what I do is, I turned the situation around.

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

And he said, then I say to that person,

00:26:03--> 00:26:07

if I could prove to you, beyond the shadow of a doubt,

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

that God really does exist.

00:26:13--> 00:26:22

If I could, if I had the ability to prove to you 1,000,000%, that God truly does exist, would you believe

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

we're speaking about the unseen XML?

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

And he says to me, 100% of the time, the answer is,

00:26:32--> 00:26:33


00:26:34--> 00:26:41

If you could prove to me if I could show you God Himself, would you believe? Yes.

00:26:42--> 00:26:49

And if this very God asked you to wear the color blue on Tuesdays, would you do it?

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

Yes, I would.

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

He said that Islam,

00:26:57--> 00:27:01

total submission, we do what we do, because we believe in the unseen.

00:27:03--> 00:27:43

Sometimes it may make sense to you, sometimes it may not, doesn't change, and it doesn't take anything away. We do what we do, because we believe in the unseen and we believe in the perfection of Allah. That if Allah wants me, because Allah is merciful God, Allah is merciful, and Allah is just analyze perfection. So if Allah tells me to stay away from fornication and Zina, then Allah has my best interest. Right? And if Allah asks me to wear a particular dress, or to stay away from a particular food, or two, then my belief in him is what allows me to do it.

00:27:44--> 00:27:47

And I was like, man, Muslims need to hear

00:27:48--> 00:27:49


00:27:52--> 00:27:52


00:27:54--> 00:27:57

If you don't have that faith in the unseen,

00:27:58--> 00:28:41

you're going to struggle, like Allah is truth. And everything that comes from truth is truth, full stop plus, move on. It's a beautiful thing. And you know, what's very important, Kemal is, I believe, more than ever before, we need this today as Muslims Australia, because we need to be Anunnaki let me say you will be challenged. Allah says he will test us and our faith in the unseen will be tested, you spoke about charity before, Allah and His Prophet are telling us that give and your money will not reduce, it will not be reduced, it increases never. Okay, so now this becomes challenging, because let's say for instance, I have

00:28:42--> 00:29:04

I have $100 I gave $50 in charity, my eyes and everything, every sign and logical human being and all right, is if I've given 50 in charity, how much money do I have left? 50 I have 100 I gave 50 How much is left? $50. But as a Muslim, you can't say that.

00:29:06--> 00:29:21

Because if that 50 was given in charity, then Allah and His Prophet have spoken the truth. And that's where things get tricky for some students. And that's why you have to believe in you. That's why you can't be a materialist and you can't

00:29:22--> 00:29:31

rely on the census and you can't because by that logic by that you know, my that a

00:29:32--> 00:29:37

empiricists, no way that's that's not true. You

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

have to accept it and and you cannot eliminate Allah from the equation. Right. And you will be tested and this is now you know, you spoke about certain levels of Eman where you worship Allah as if you see him but you can't see him. But you know that he sees you want a level of faith. Yeah, what

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

level of faith.

00:30:02--> 00:30:23

A man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam get this McCain so a man comes to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam I love this story, because it really drives this submission and faith of anything else. Allah will test you trust me to charity through this. So a man comes to the Prophet he system of Prophet of Allah, my brother is sick.

00:30:24--> 00:30:29

So the Prophet systeem sallallahu Sallam he system give your brother honey

00:30:30--> 00:30:36

now why this particular prescription we know that Allah smart Allah that honey is a cure for sicknesses.

00:30:37--> 00:30:43

They now let me die yet I mean, let's just, you know, dissect this and sort of

00:30:45--> 00:30:51

It's incredible, because now this is an employee's This is for the Muslim, very important for the Muslim

00:30:52--> 00:31:17

because many of us have given in charity, but didn't get to see the reward right? Or the assumption is is man What are you talking about the last time I gave in charity when I came home I didn't see my wife said to me that the landlord's up the rent on us, right so you thinking by but didn't allow promise that because you won't be tested. So now this man he comes he says, Look, my brother is sick. Now imagine this. You got the prescription? Not from some share?

00:31:19--> 00:31:44

Sure. It's not by some person who you know what? His questionable? Yeah, I don't like his views. You know, when this is the wreck from the man himself? Salallahu alaihe salam, right. So the man goes home and he's excited and he's happy and he goes home and he gave his brother honey, the next day, when he comes in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and now the Prophet is asking, how is your brother?

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

Well, things got awkward, right?

00:31:49--> 00:31:57

I mean, this is my assumption. I'm not saying this is what happened in the Hadith, but my assumption is, knowing of my personal dealings, things get awkward. He says how's your brother?

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

He says our Prophet of Allah he's still sick.

00:32:04--> 00:32:05

And then many of us say

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

that maybe this was incorrect and maybe

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

so the profit systems or loss let me system go back and give you a brother honey.

00:32:14--> 00:32:23

Now the prescription wasn't changed. He didn't add any more ingredients, right? It's the same thing. Goes back gives him honey comes back. Next day, system how's your brother?

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

But if you thought the first I was awkward, imagine try.

00:32:29--> 00:32:31

He says a prophet of life to seek

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

that knock the faith.

00:32:34--> 00:32:36

Eman in the unseen.

00:32:37--> 00:32:43

He says go back and give you a three anyway three times and three times the brother was not cured.

00:32:46--> 00:32:58

So yeah, you may be but they are looking at the reaction of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he says, He says, Allah has spoken the truth. And the stomach of your brother is lying. Give him honey.

00:32:59--> 00:33:02

He goes back he gives him honey and then he was curious.

00:33:03--> 00:33:19

You will be tested, you will be pushed. But to believe that faith that if Allah says something, then no matter what the world tells me, by Allah, even if my eyes are showing me something else, this is imen now

00:33:21--> 00:33:44

this is a man that backed by man My eyes are showing me something else. No, we believe a law over our senses. over our touch on our side, if Allah says Next word, and our fear of this turning into a lecture, let me tell you why this is important. Why and pleased especially my young brothers and sisters, please.

00:33:47--> 00:33:50

Allah makes a firm oath in the Quran.

00:33:51--> 00:34:04

Because we live in a world now where sin is so rampant it's so open it's so accessible and easy. Not only that the scene is available, but our eyes are showing us that through Cindy's happiness and joy

00:34:06--> 00:34:32

that through her arm people are finding success Yeah, the smiles the laughter right through how long Yeah, but Allah says that no success of dunya this world and success of the hereafter can only be through doing so now. Okay, so now what do I do my eyes and my senses are showing me something. This is now even Allah says and this is gonna be a bit powerful and this is gonna be but Allah it's so important. Allah says in the Quran sort of power.

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

Woman Arden victory,

00:34:36--> 00:34:37

very powerful

00:34:38--> 00:34:59

losses and whoever turns from my faith shuns and the word Allah there's really no English translation. Right? It's like a collaboration of things. But the example right from for many of us, busy, who's got time for this command? He serious, right? Allah says women are on victory. That look let me give you the formula to ever say

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

away from my Dean stays away from my faith stays away from these noble actions acts of worship whoever, you know, he's too busy out of this world has a tinge of arrogance in it right? Aradhana Come on, man. He's still praying. Are you really well law? I remember growing up, you know, come on, bro. Are you still doing these things? move on? Yeah, you know, you know, seniors seniors, you know, and because he didn't want to disrespect them and sometimes they family members, you know, sometimes it could be an uncle, right? Come on, man. He's still doing this. You look like an animal you look like, like very derogatory things. So Allah says, women are the one victory. I pray to Allah that

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

this piece is you hearts

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

our laws, oath and promise, for in the law whom I shot on banca.

00:35:53--> 00:35:58

Then verily for this person is a miserable retroed life

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

but my eyes are showing me happiness. My eyes are showing me Louis Vuitton and snapchats and right but my eyes are showing me this My eyes are showing me this restaurant and that restaurant and this holiday location and that holiday location. And look, there is no designer label on earth that can cover the misery if Allah has promised it. But unfortunately because we don't look through the eyes of Eman we look through the eyes of dunya

00:36:30--> 00:36:44

that this alarm makes it clear oath whoever has seen advice and negligence and shuns away from faith or loss is for in Allahumma schatten bunker and it doesn't just end there.

00:36:45--> 00:37:00

One shooter who yarmulke yamatai armor cap how powerful things gear Allah says and nanny not only have you suffered dunya and this is the thing you know like we only see half the image that we

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

you know I see the fancy car

00:37:05--> 00:37:07

I see the very nice watch and I see the

00:37:09--> 00:37:11

one law I can today

00:37:12--> 00:37:15

you see the pain in people smile

00:37:17--> 00:37:53

so what because you know this isn't to say one person is better than the next but the equation or laws giving you the formula is their voice in your life sin haraam is the is the negligence of Dean and I'm not this is very important to you we're not speaking about that I made a mistake thing you know, we were all full of mistakes. But the consistency on sin I guess I guess you actually hit him on the head right there when you said that a las panatela he will resurrect this person blind. Yeah. And then and I think he says to him, you know, why am I blind?

00:37:55--> 00:38:00

When actually you're Mel pm at the AMA Look, this is amazing.

00:38:01--> 00:38:06

before Allah says our arrogant person now

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

now he sees

00:38:11--> 00:38:24

remember faith before seeing you know believing in the unseen that was foolish delusion that was a common man he's still doing this but there because he says with his eye look how the conversation changes with his Lord.

00:38:25--> 00:38:30

Color Robbie wow my Lord

00:38:31--> 00:38:45

you know can you can you see the different color Robbie Lima has certain why'd Why have you resurrected me blind wattpad come to basura Allah I used to see in dunya Indonesia I had eyes to see

00:38:46--> 00:39:08

color Catholic. Allah says verily at that area to know we sent you our signs. Now these take it how you want the podcast that came to you the text message that came to you, your mother that said to you please Habiba alighiero dialect please maybe your father that good friend that the science came through multiple avenues

00:39:09--> 00:39:14

Wallah, they came, we sent you our signs, or remind this game.

00:39:16--> 00:39:16


00:39:18--> 00:39:20

but you chose to neglect

00:39:22--> 00:39:25

folio matanza. Today you are neglected.

00:39:27--> 00:39:30

Right? Yeah, yeah, you chose that.

00:39:31--> 00:39:58

You see today you'll be forgotten now in this world in donia. We have escaped goats. But on that day, there's no escape government. Actually, you hit it like really hard. Like, Allah will say, oh, you're going to be forgotten today and another verse. woman cannot be had the heat. For who I feel lucky. And look at this is like a simile or metaphor. Whoever was blind here. So it comes back to our topic.

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

We'll be blind.

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

And we're not we're not saying earlier the Buddha whoever was physically blind to how did it know that whoever was blind, the eyes that go blind is the heart, it's the heart. So whoever was who didn't want to see in this life and where he is speaking about the unseen and believing in the unseen, whoever didn't want to see. And when we see when we speak about see we're talking about the seeing of the unseen, whoever didn't want to see in this slide is going to be blind in the next life. And what is the last palletizer for abasolo Kelly, oma Hadid novel today while your eyes heavy iron you will see on today and that's like, to me like goosebumps.

00:40:42--> 00:40:49

We're talking about the unseen. Do you see or can you not see and you know, sometimes online,

00:40:50--> 00:40:59

pain in my heart, I wish I can reach out to the Muslims and even to the non Muslim, that look what you're really searching for is in faith.

00:41:01--> 00:41:16

Don't Please don't be fooled. You know, they, it's impossible. If there is harm, if there is sin, if there is they cannot be happening, you will have thrills, no doubt, you'll have little cheap thrills, you will have moments of joy, we're not saying you won't.

00:41:18--> 00:41:25

But the the the formula of Allah is for this person will be a miserable life.

00:41:27--> 00:41:38

And that's an end You can't escape that. So we need to learn to train ourselves that hang on men. Don't look at you know, it's not, you're not seeing the full picture.

00:41:39--> 00:41:44

If I have haraam in my life, all the selfies of the world

00:41:46--> 00:42:00

can not hide the pain in the misery in my life. And you see a lot I see it so many times. Can I get on a video about social media and how people present themselves online and I was

00:42:02--> 00:42:46

just like Happy, happy, happy 99% of your images, work, we know for a fact that a person isn't happy in real life. Right? Like, it's not a it's not a secret. It's not something that you have to study. If you can, you will know that this person isn't happy. As much as he presents himself to be online, do we fall for the facade even doesn't even have to be on the panel. And I guess what I also I think it's important for us to say, we're not coming here from like, I guess from a top down approach, we're saying that this is something which is a test. And it's not necessarily easy, it's hard, it's difficult at times, it does get hard at times, you will sleep, but at the end of day, this is why

00:42:46--> 00:42:53

it's a test. This is why Allah is testing you. And it's not going to be easy, but just keep trying. It's hard, I agree.

00:42:54--> 00:43:04

But surely it's much easier than trying to keep up with these trends. Straight out. Straight out. You know, I just hear about people's lives and I get exhausted

00:43:05--> 00:43:06

just hearing

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

you get exhausted.

00:43:09--> 00:43:12

And at least here if I try

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

I'm getting somewhere somewhere solid,

00:43:17--> 00:43:26

somewhere solid like this, this Seeing is believing thing. You know, going back to that comment that was saying before where many people say you know if we could just say

00:43:29--> 00:43:32

you know, I always think about this that Allah subhanaw taala

00:43:34--> 00:43:54

he paints the day of judgment was in the Quran, right? And imagine this, I know this is getting a bit much but just like it adds so much flavor where Allah subhanaw taala says that on the Day of Judgment jahannam will be brought forward.

00:43:56--> 00:44:04

So imagine this day, every human being that was ever born and created will be standing on this open plane,

00:44:05--> 00:44:32

or the jinn or the angels, everything will be there. And this jahannam will be brought forward. And this is again, faith belief that in the Quran, it's a man that every word in this book is pure, authentic perfection, its truth, its ultimate truth. Do you remember when we were don't * Kemal and one of our teachers? I think it was

00:44:33--> 00:44:43

don't open the name. Right? But something he said to us, he said, pure, pure knowledge is what online is profit.

00:44:44--> 00:44:59

That is pure knowledge that is pure, absolutely undebatable knowledge. Everything else is good. But anyway, so now Allah says the Day of Judgment right that Jana will be brought forward and imagine now I'm going between Quran and

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

authentic hadith magian this janome is dragged by 70,000 bring those chains if you like. And on every chain rope, there are 70,000 angels just think about that

00:45:16--> 00:45:20

4.9 billion angels

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

that are dragging janam forward.

00:45:25--> 00:45:31

And then when jahannam sees the human being it sees the insane for the first time.

00:45:33--> 00:45:44

It says, This is what I was created for. So when it sees the human being, it almost erupts like it releases this.

00:45:46--> 00:45:48

And when it releases

00:45:50--> 00:45:59

every creation, man Gen. prophets ain't, everything will fall to its knees in prostration.

00:46:01--> 00:46:09

And Allah will say, get up. Today is not the day of worship. Today is the day of judgment.

00:46:11--> 00:46:29

says this is your faith now doesn't has no value anymore. It's kind of scary. Do you know what? What what now you're falling on? prostration everything's gonna fall angels who already fall prophets fold men when everything falls to its knees in frustration.

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

But what why? Because now you see it.

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


00:46:35--> 00:46:40

What separates the Muslim? Is that belief in the unseen

00:46:41--> 00:47:11

that the word the promise of more of Allah and His Prophet is Huck. So when we look many people give charity many people because it's the fatra Allah has placed good in all human beings so good when we many people do charity, right? Or charitable things. Some people genuinely just do it because it's a good thing to do. Right? I know lots of normal you do because it's a noble act. And Allah rewards them for that. Don't don't don't think no, and Allah rewards them for it in this dunya.

00:47:12--> 00:47:13

But there's a difference.

00:47:14--> 00:47:21

When you believe in the and when you believe in the unseen, you don't give charity anymore. You become like a madman.

00:47:23--> 00:47:26

You give without any fear of poverty.

00:47:27--> 00:47:45

That makes sense. Like you're not. Now I'm not just giving you a loaf of bread to eat, because that's No, no. It's levels now. I given I exhaust all my resources and all my means with no fee of poverty. Now, when have you seen charity like that?

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

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam Do you know I'm saying to the

00:47:52--> 00:47:53

man in the unseen

00:47:54--> 00:48:02

that's all it is, man. And like, I guess we want to say, Oh, we want to see God. And I guess that's the atheist discourse. I believe in something I can't see.

00:48:03--> 00:48:15

If you saw God, what's the point of this life being a test? If you could see God? Like, what's the point of this test? The whole purpose of life is a test on people if they say God will still believe.

00:48:18--> 00:48:20

He said, one person asking

00:48:22--> 00:48:26

what what what, what would you do? when your life is when you have cancer?

00:48:27--> 00:48:50

What would you do when you die? And you arrive at the pearly gates? What are you going to say to God? He's one of the most arrogant stubborn atheists we've ever met. Who says, I'll ask him why. Why did the children out choose not to but I don't want to believe that. Stephen Fry. No, no. Christopher Hitchens? Yeah. He said, he said,

00:48:51--> 00:48:55

I even if I'm not like that existed, I don't want to believe in him.

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

He says, I that's that's the definition of

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

us to believe in a god. Even if it didn't exist, I repeat the worship.

00:49:06--> 00:49:18

Like he's admitting is almost like he's admitting, you know, it's pure arrogance, just utter arrogance. May Allah protect and preserve us. Because it is only a last favor.

00:49:20--> 00:49:23

It is only a last favor that we're not in this man's shoes.

00:49:24--> 00:49:41

It is true. That I guess, you know, I think that will be a beautiful thing to actually end on, is that this is not a we're not coming out of arrogance or out of boasting because, you know, Bella, who yamano Allah caminhada coming Amen. Allah is the one who has favored us

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

through this guidance, to give us faith. It is our last panel with Allah and I think that this belief in the unseen at the end of day humbles us and I feel like we need to acknowledge that it should make us humble. It shouldn't make us proud and you know what we're saying at the start you know, you know, boldly say you

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

believe in Allah but at the end of the day, we're not trying to tell you become a proud, arrogant, boastful person. We're trying to tell you this should humble you to know that it is through Allah subhanho wa Taala that he's given us this this beautiful gift of Islam. Allah is the one who who who who has beautified amen in your hearts, Allah is kind of a call for so called ICN. He's made us dislike, corruption and evil deeds. So we were humble at the end the day and ask Allah to make us humble, and above all, thankful and grateful to the Most High suparna for allowing us to have this man in our hearts.

00:50:39--> 00:50:45

I mean, I mean, and on saying that, I feel like it's been a beautiful discussion.

00:50:47--> 00:51:26

You know, my two favorite people, as I said, Big Mac and big homeless. It's been a beautiful conversation. I feel like we've touched on a lot of things. And I feel like this is something crucial, crucial. We're living in a time where Seeing is believing, and we're telling you to do the total opposite. believe in the unseen because even when the End of Times do come and if we are alive to see that when the child comes his biggest fitna would be his showing you things and telling you to believe in this but we're gonna have to say no, we don't believe with what we see through here. We believe with what we see through here. And I ask Allah to make us of those, you know, nebulous

00:51:26--> 00:51:44

ape who believe in the unseen and I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us all with a man. If you enjoyed today's podcast, please subscribe to our channel.
