wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah we praise Him subhanho wa Taala the King, the master the sustainer, the creator of the seven heavens and the earth, and we send peace and blessings upon His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam
my brother's we're living in a very difficult time
and the truth is many of us are lose many of us are losing our way.
My brothers when it comes to LD our deen is the most precious thing you have.
And we're living in a time where many of us are feeling that our deen is open for interpretation.
Whereas really my brothers The truth is, is that the deen of Allah subhanaw taala has been made complete and the deen of Allah subhanaw taala has been perfected.
The way that the last part of what Allah revealed the deen to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is complete perfection. This is how Allah subhanho wa Taala wants it. And this is how it will remain. And those that tried to change it in any way, shape or form, they will be destroyed, they will failed.
Our success in this life, our success in the grave. Our success in the hereafter is only and I highlight the words only by following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, according to how he showed it and how he taught it.
My brothers we live in a time where the world you know where the word extremism is thrown around. That he's an extremist, that this is extreme, that this is too much.
And we are becoming confused. What is extreme?
How do I know if something has crossed the line or not?
Is is extremism according to what you and I think?
Is it according to what the world tells us? Is that according to the local newspapers and what they think
or maybe you think it's according to what our fathers and what our local machines think
the truth is my brother's for you and I as a Muslim.
Being extremists are not.
The measuring stick that we use is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He is the balance sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the middle way.
So don't be fooled by the world and what he tells you.
If you want to know if you have become an extremist, then judge yourself according to him, salAllahu alayhi wasallam. For by Allah, anything more than what the Prophet did is extreme.
And it will not be accepted by Allah, no matter how much it suits your whims and your desires, it will not be accepted.
Some men they came to the Prophet of Allah, and of course, the young, the energetic life, most of us.
They were on fire. So they came asking about the bed that the worship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they came to his wives. And this is a sahih Hadith. So they asked, Tell us about the Prophet of Allah. So they asked, Tell us about his fasting.
So his wife replied, below the waterline, and she said, he would fast some days, and he would break his fast some days.
So they asked tell us about his night prayer. So she said that he would sleep some of them might, and pray, some of them might, and sometimes he would pray all night, and you know, so it was potions and potions. And then of course, I asked about marriage did he marry? And obviously he did.
So these three almost as if a while and not to say that they will not embrace of course, but almost as if they said, Well, you know what, he's the Prophet of Allah, He can do as he pleases. But for us, we need to prove ourselves to Allah. So one of them said, You know what, as of this day forward, I will fast every single day and I will never break my fast.
The other one said, You know what, as of this day forward, I will never marry a woman.
The other one said, I'm going to pray all the night and not sleep, any part of it.
Thinking that they will go into bliss, Allah impress Allah subhanho wa Taala
thinking that they wanted to do more
so when the new
reach the Prophet of Allah it angered him.
It angered him, it didn't impress him. He said, where are those who think more or less and I'm paraphrasing, where are those who think that they're going to worship Allah better than how I do.
You will never love Allah, Allah more than the Prophet. You will never love Allah smart Allah more than you will never worshipping more than the Prophet, you will never understand him more than what the Prophet of Allah said, He called these men. And he said to them very clearly, we're alessian in our day and age in our language. Who do you think you are?
He says, I sleep some of the night and I pray some of the night. I fast some days, and I break my fast Sundays, and I marry.
And anyone who leaves my sooner anyone who leaves my way within his not from me.
But you know what's also true, my brothers
is we all understand when we've done more than the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, all of us agree that is anything more than rasool Allah is extreme. Well, I have news for you today. We always fail to mention the opposite side of the scale. Because the truth is, anything less than the prophet is also extreme. But no one talks about that.
Then it's okay for me to be clean shaven, it's okay for me to not pray. It's okay. You know, and, you know, I'm just I'm not a practicing Muslim. No, in truth, you're an extremist.
Because he was the balance, he was the middle way. Anything more or less is extreme.
You can't just sit there and put your fingers at these guys with the beads and say they are and they're not.
No, because he saw Allah said, if you choose to be a Muslim, and let me assure you, no one is forced to be a Muslim. Can we make this clear tonight? No one is forced to be a Muslim.
Islam is a choice that you and I make. I choose to be a Muslim. When I wake up in Deen, I choose to I choose to follow the suit of Lhasa Lawson, because I am convinced beyond all doubt that this is Huck full heart. It's the complete truth. So therefore I choose to follow Islam. None of you is forced.
People come to you know, what's the Islamic perspective on this? And
no one is forced to be a Muslim no one.
It's not my job to justify anything in my religion.
is the true Muslims do this? And is it true Muslims do that?
I don't need to justify anything to anyone. That's not my job.
He is the balance on Allahu alayhi wa sallam, anything? No.
But also anything less is extremism, if you choose to be a Muslim.
And that's the problem is that today we've allowed our dean to be what you and I think that this is what I think Islam is. And this is what I think Islam is. And no, you know what, I think Islam should be more like this, it should be more like that. Hang on,
The greatest prophet
accompanied with the greatest Omer, followed by the greatest two generations to come after them, followed by 1400 years of scholars who gave their lives for these being. Now all of a sudden, all of this is pushed aside, and Islam has come down to what you have. I think, really?
People come to me all the time, Brother, what's your opinion on this?
My excuse the French, who the hell am I to have an opinion?
1400 years of all of that now. Someone has a bit of a following on Facebook. Someone mashallah maybe he's gifted in speech, all of a sudden he feels that his opinion on the matter is important.
Well, I have news for you. It doesn't matter what you think.
Our religion has been perfected and completed.
What matters to us is what the Prophet of Allah said and taught and then, and that's what matters to us. His opinion matters. And those Sahaba that follow me, because they understood being the most that's what simple
You and I,
today my brother's lb has become thoughts, this better than the other and it's destroying us.
It's destroying us
Have you heard this concept you know? And you know, why Allah I'm not attacking anyone, but there is some frustration because of what's happening around the world and there is pressure and I understand the risk pressure and Muslims are faced with with, with, you know, to be honest things that we don't know how to deal with. So what ends up happening is we end up selling our deen show.
Muslims are falling all over themselves, trying to make that being something that it isn't
twisting and turning things trying to make it more appealing, trying to make it more pleasing to non Muslims. Well, I have news for you. That's not my job and that's not your job.
My job my job is not to make anyone love or accept Islam. My job is more purely to live my deen and presented in the best form possible. You will accept you like is none of my business. You cannot guide anyone Allah guides
Allah guides not you and I
Muslims all over the coming up with things and theories on the Dean trying to make a slam so pink and rosy. Well, yes, I understand you mean well, but what you're not realizing is you're actually destroying things. You're making things worse, you're not making it better.
Have you heard this Muslims even Muslims do this now? Islam means peace. Does anyone here disagree? This is what we've been taught that Islam means peace.
Where did you get that? From? Who said that?
Now forgive me by no means am I saying that Islam
is a hyper religion now. Islam is definitely a peaceful religion. I agree. But Islam doesn't mean peace.
People were any opportunity or please no stress. Islam means peace. We are not hang on. Islam doesn't mean peace.
Islam means submission.
That sugarcoat things. Islam means submission, to do to what? To Allah and His Prophet.
And those that submit, they called Muslims.
And the more that they submit to avoid his prophet, these people will find peace in their lives.
But the slum doesn't mean peace. So stop trying to make it something it's not
a slam me submission.
But you find that we're falling all over ourselves.
Trying to make our religion something it's yes, I agree. Islam is most certainly a peaceful religion.
We feel forced to condemn can then can then step one way has to condemn anything for I'm not guilty. I didn't pick up a gun or a knife or harm anyone? Why do I have to condemn that fall? Why am I being forced and bullied and intimidated in my own name? In my own country? Why am I being attacked? Why do I need to condemn before what do I do?
A crime is a crime. You know, it said this is basics.
Sometimes I feel a captain obvious when I mentioned these things.
A crime is a crime and anyone who commits a crime be a Muslim Allah the lender, the lender will deal with him
I don't mean to condemn anything
but you find that we tried to make our deen something it's not let's go back
you know many of us and again we're lawyers are not attacking.
But we need to understand my brothers and sisters. Our dean is what lb again it's not up to you or mine.
l Dean is held the Prophet of Allah and his companions, this very other model.
How they understood Dean is what you and I have to take
today now when it comes I'll give you a classic example.
When it comes to the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
of course, a mercy to mankind, the man who had Salah Salem, the greatest Haluk and manners, and other manners and ways and etiquette and love and compassion, he is the absolute pinnacle. There is no greater than him some Allahu Allah, USA. But you find that even amongst Muslims amongst ourselves, we tend to paint this image of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It's not complete
that the Prophet of Allah was always smiling. He was always happy. He never got angry. He never cursed anyone.
Yes, well, I agree. His overall character was loving compassion and smiling.
But we make him out to be almost as if, like,
you know, I don't want to say anything disrespectful towards him. But we paint this image. That's not true.
That he never got angry that he never raised his voice. Sometimes I give a hookah and I get a bit worked up, and maybe I start screaming or whatever the case is. I have 100 people who are ready to pull me up. But why are you speaking like this? This is not Islam. The Prophet of Allah was never like this. He was always calm and beautiful and polite and smiling. He always spoke politely. While I agree that that was his overall character. But once you prefer this, what do you make the profit out to be something he entirely wasn't
the companions in some narrations. They described him some below while he was selling them. And I used to say that we used to be in the masjid. And he used to be giving the Hotbird the sermon
he used to raise his voice so loud, he could be holding the marketplaces.
What was he doing? Singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
Bless be honest, what was he doing? Why was his voice heard in the marketplace? They used to say his face would go red veins would be on his neck, his eyes just to go read. He would address us as if there was an Army coming. Why do you undermine this part of your prophets? Allah, Allah, Allah, it's important to follow him you need to have the complete picture. Don't just pick and choose what makes you happy. And the opposite is true.
Some people try to paint the perfect practice if you have a sword in his hand. You might know he didn't
give justice to his image.
Yes, he was overly pleasant, overly smart, you know? Yes, this was his overall character.
But he didn't get angry. He didn't get upset. He didn't curse. He didn't warm. He didn't raise his voice.
Why do why do we deny that for?
When it comes to Allah, we do the exact same thing, even amongst Muslims, that Allah you know that Islam is peaceful, loving and caring, and that Allah subhanaw taala is not for Rahim, that last month, Allah is the most loving, the most caring, he's the one that forgives all sins. And it's true. I don't deny that by no means am I taking the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala away from me known
but we stress on his mercy so much so that we forget that he Sabine punishment.
And this is what I want to highlight here tonight.
Don't make the deen out to be something it's not
the full picture.
Because what's happening now is most of us myself included, we have this image of Allah subhanaw taala. And you know this, the sort of verses of Quran and authentic hadith we love spreading. And I know you mean well, but what you don't realize is, if you don't balance it, you can do more harm than good. I'll give you an example Quran so now we can argue. No one can argue it's Quran authentic. Allah smart. Allah says in the Quran, what, what Matthew was at Kula Shea, and my mercy encompasses all things.
And we love the verse. We thrive on it, but have you noticed that's all we say? What did he say before What did he say after is irrelevant? What it was cooler shall stop being harsh. Stop being extreme. What are you doing? No.
But and then and then the other Hadith Mangala
Allah Allah Allah Allah What the hell Jana Masha Allah save our pack your bags and let's we'll go home and sing Kumbaya together
Come on believe me can you call our suit allah sallallahu alayhi salam mongkol Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, the halal Jenna. Wow.
And this is my topic tonight
that my brothers unfortunately and forgive me, you know, I know what you want to call me roll a realist, I don't know. But for me, I feel that this is how I benefit and this is how I move forward. So therefore I'm sharing that with you like I like it to be shared with me. Whatever you like to take or whatever you don't like please drop it and leave it.
But when we talk about it, it's always hopeful. And Allah's Mercy encompasses all themes and don't worry about makalah Allah is gonna enter Jannah and that you know what, at the end of the day nothing's gonna happen. Well that's far from the truth. Because the same Allah that says no Quran Wa T was the Akula Shea he also says no Quran for me.
Allah says, Am I working against myself?
No, no one wants to talk about that. No one has an interpretation for that.
Yeah, you have Levina
Kumar has lot
of you who believe Save yourselves and your families from the don't fire
Forgive me, my brothers, but this is what I feel. Most of us feel and think that you know what, that this is a big joke that your life and your existence in this world is some big joke. And that on the Day of Judgment, Allah is just gonna say to everyone, did y'all get scared? Well, don't worry about it. It was all fun and games all of you now get to run and play
my brother's your life is real.
Allah is not playing games.
Your existence in this world is not by chance.
But for you and I know you know what the I'm alive because 30 odd years ago mum and dad got together and there you go. And you now know you exist because Allah created you and He created you for a reason. And Allah is watching you. And everything you do is recorded with Allah. Some people think hey, you know what, there's 1.7 billion Muslims. So really what I do doesn't benefit and doesn't have no you're wrong. He does.
Allah is watching your every move. When you call the Law of law is there Allah watches and listens to every one of you? simulataneously Allah subhanaw taala doesn't get lost.
Don't say that? You know what that because there's a lot of people, it's not going to really matter whether I do I don't know. He does. Allah was watching you.
We've taken our deen too lightly.
And that's a concern.
Because my brothers and sisters won't some of you may think that you know what, this this guy was really pushing it down the wrong road. Fine. Don't believe me? But look at your Prophet and his companion sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
I looked around and I see no one is worried anymore. No one is stressed. Everyone is in cruise control.
You know, I don't pray. Yeah, I don't read Quran. Yeah, I don't do this. But it's okay. Where did you get that from?
Oh, you obviously didn't hear Allah says in the Quran. Warahmatullah Akula Shay
butter here. Maybe I'm not the best but the Prophet of Allah sent them the Sahadi makalah La Ilaha illa Allah, Donal Jana. And I think well Subhana Allah.
You understood being better than the Prophet and his companions? No non stop for love. I didn't say that. Then what are you saying?
Why is it that the Prophet and the companions were worried? And you will know we're not worried? No one is stressed anymore. Have you noticed?
Yeah, I'll do what I can. If I get the chance if I get around to it.
Whatever Allah allows me to do, well,
they were worried and stressed and you will know we don't want you to stress.
Your profit you was promised.
He was promised paradise and macabre mood was for him the highest possible status.
The highest possible position was for him some of our while in Salem.
Even he used to say I used to repent to Allah. I used to make stuff for 100 times a day worried fee? He would spend you know he would spend the mind praying, worried and concerned.
When Allah or does he you know in sort of the hood and those and those chapters that are like the Prophet of Allah he says this surah gave me great his stress and concern a prophet of Allah What are you worried about? You're free from sin you're going to paradise so can relax. What are you worried about? He was worried and you annoyed? We're not worried?
No one cares
my brother's you're deeply serious. Your wife is serious. It's not a joke. Don't be fooled
Don't be fooled. Companions were worried.
And your mind we're not worried. Look at their lives.
Everywhere I go, it's the same song.
Every country I visit with money it's the same thing wherever I go. Brother. How's your relationship with Allah?
It's not the best. Why isn't it the best? Yeah, he's carrying
on busy. What are you busy with?
What are you busy? We have so Quran. Not the best. Can you read Arabic now? Well, I'm not an Arab. I'm nothing. We fail in everything. And what's worse, you know, that's half the problem. You know what's worse than this? Is every one of us if we're honest, tonight, every one of us is convinced beyond all doubt that I'm definitely going to Janna.
What proof do you have?
What proof do you have that you're going to paradise? And by all means, by no means am I sending anyone to hellfire Please don't misunderstand the message.
But everyone's convinced Yeah, I'm doing a paradise why? Because hey, I said that Allah Allah, Allah and the Prophet of Allah, you heard the Hadith. The lawyer. Why is it that the prophets were concerned that you and I are not concerned?
Sahaba were worried and they were promised paradise. You know what's funny, is they were promised Jenna and I were still worried and stressed you will not have been promised nothing. Nothing. And we're living life in cruise control.
If I get the chance and Charlotte OPCOM
who's misunderstood me?
death is not a joke.
judgment that is not a joke.
Wire is not a joke.
Allah's wrath and punishment is not a joke. And they believed it. They understood that
and that's why they were successful because when you look at their lives, they will always worry always pushing themselves forward. Always concern De Beauvoir except have I done enough
you annoy we do very little Yes. You give a couple of dollars a couple of pounds or whatever your currency is you somebody on the way out you feel like Allah He favors
I'm not boasting by that but you know that machine down the road when they were building it
I gave $10,000
You know my brothers let me share some stories you know of your father's your father's military about the whole amount in the machine. Maybe you and I can argue about them. But your father's the companions?
Why did the gerbil blow the water? No. Wild was one of those.
The best of companions that
was was just a special special special companion. But look how they understood the and you can use my understanding.
Just to give you an idea of who is
one of the was one of those companions whom the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith.
Imagine, try to live the Hadith. Don't just listen to it, try to live it and absorb it and understand the weight of who this man is. Why didn't a gerbil was one of those companions
prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he single handedly picked out
he says to me mo have by Allah I love you.
Your Mohammed, I love you. By Allah I Love You by Allah Johan. I love you
imagine having this test certification
yet this same will have many years later when he reaches old age on his deathbed, listen to what he says.
He says Allah,
old age, this is knocking on his door. He says he Allah, I lived my whole life in fear of you.
People tell I try to impress me. Is your relationship with Allah a relationship or fee? stuffer? My relationship is a relationship of love
but none of that
you people have no understanding.
But you know what? I have no understanding. But these are his words. He says oh Allah I lived my whole life in fear of you.
You're alone y'all know I'm old and brittle and weak. This is knocking on my door Yeah, Allah. Even if I wanted to do anything y'all know I can't do anything as of this moment on these. You're alone No, no, in this position, you're Allah. I'm handing an unclean round to your mercy Allah Avraham on me
you and I were young, we were capable I can go and I can come and you're clinging on to Allah is no fear whatsoever
and you're trying to convince me that you will not understand being more than what the ad
Why was a way that you and I are more worried.
I'm gonna use my personal favorite. My personal favorite. I'm gonna promise paradise many times, many times. Imagine the Prophet of Allah promises you paradise.
Many times the men and the Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says to my woman, if there was if there was to be a prophet after me, it was going to be
the men in the Prophet of Allah is to say what is just a mama, when you take a path, Nova shaitan takes another path
this was a man who when he was walking in the streets, and he heard a man reciting verses of Quran that spoke about the punishment of Allah, he became ill and bedridden for 20 days, companions were visiting in our town for 20 days.
worried and concerned.
You will know
that I ever Relax, relax. Mukalla Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah definitely. Well, Allah didn't know this hadith.
When the Hatami Imagine, imagine Allah He by no means pleased me, because I'm not one to use these emotional stories to make you cry. I couldn't care less about those things. Right? But try to imagine and absorb. This man who we know in his reign in his Khilafah was the golden years of LD. The golden years of Islam were during the rule of amagno Hapa and even won't mean leaving the prayer in Masjid Nabawi I mean, how much more status could you possibly want
leading Salah in the masjid, he gets stabbed when he's in the pray.
He falls to the floor.
The Companions come to his aid.
And after they realize harass the man is dying, the man is leaving us.
His son of the lies within
an omen of the khatam has his hand on his son's phone.
And that is moments away.
So I'm one of the Hatami systems some of the law is just over
My son, take my head off your phone, take my head off your lap and turn on the floor.
He says my father ye
he says my son because I'm hoping. He says I'm hoping and I'm praying that if Allah sees me in this humiliated state, that maybe just maybe may have brought bad mercy on me.
And you're walking around, is it Yeah, Brother, what's wrong? Relax. I'm going to paradise for sure. I mean, really? If I know don't agenda there are no who is
very worried and concerned that you will not Yes, everything's fine and dandy.
Can you see this deception that's happening to us?
My brothers, you need to be worried and concerned. Allah is not playing games.
Your life is real.
I mean, I'll be working on the water. I mean, really, you know?
He was worried.
He was stressed
and worried and stressed and he was the best
and he was the best.
What is happening?
My brother's the Prophet of Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, when he describes the Day of Resurrection. Look at the picture that he paints doesn't sound like someone that's playing games.
He says on that day, the sun will be a mile above your head, one mile above your head. Doesn't sound like a pretty day.
He says on that day you will be naked barefooted uncircumcised. Does this sound like a mod that's playing games?
Naked barefooted uncircumcised
you know my brothers I sent this hadith one time in a masjid.
So one of the brothers after he came to me, he said to me, actually curry malice, you know, forgive me. But why did you have to mention the fact that you're uncircumcised? I have a 12 year old daughter upstairs. I don't think this sort of language is appropriate.
So I drove home and I was really feeling better. So you know what, maybe, you know, maybe I shouldn't have said that. Maybe that that was a little bit unappropriate.
But then I'm driving home and I thought hang on.
If the master of manners have no problems in mentioning the narration, then who am I to be embarrassed? Who am I to think that this is rude and that this is an appropriate?
You Habibie saying that they will be naked, barefooted and uncircumcised. You know, this hadith. This hadith drives me crazy. You know why?
I think to myself, and I say you know what, we isn't enough for the prophet of allah sallallahu Sallam to simply say that you'll be naked.
True? isn't enough? That's the paint the picture like if I told you, brother, you'll be naked on that day. That's enough. What do you need to tell me I'm barefooted. And why do you must surely need to add the fact that we'll be uncircumcised?
Even what does that add to the fact that we already know we're going to be naked?
You know why?
You know why? These are my personal thoughts.
Because the Prophet of Allah is telling you even that piece of foreskin that left me so many years ago, even that Allah will return to your body because not an inch of you will escape Allah on that day.
You and I think that it's a big joke.
It's a big joke.
No one is stressed anymore. No one is working on.
The Prophet of Allah when he mentioned this hadith sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is shallow to water unless she became worried.
She says a prophet of Allah is telling me what do you think he said? He says yes, I say yes, that is exactly how it will be.
But look at the comfort that he gave it isn't about the Ayesha Don't worry. For the severity of that they
the severe the hardship of that they
no one will have the time to
be looking at anyone.
And you will I think it's a big game
that he does. Yeah, I can afford to go to Hajj but I'm not gonna go to Hajj and it's okay. It's not a big deal. Relax. No, it is a big deal.
What do you need in your life for?
My brother? Aren't you worried? Aren't you concerned?
Look at the Day of Resurrection.
Prophets will be scared. Prophets will be worried. They're afraid and you will know we're not afraid
you know, my brothers let me share something very personal with you yet. Let me share something very personal
when my wife was pregnant
with my first
everyone told me all when your wife gives birth, it's the most amazing thing in the world. One One guy said to me about that I fainted when my wife gave birth. The other one said to me I swear I could promise you I've seen angels come down and movies aflam Hindi within Kivar and Disney.
So my wife she's pregnant. And Allah He forgive me. My wife is watching please forgive me. I can't lie I'm in the masjid.
You know, I'm so I went. She's gonna give birth and everyone's telling me it's the most amazing thing in the world.
So I was there for 18 hours. 18 hours. Last thing stars.
So when she finally gave birth, they wrapped up the baby and I'm older and they said to me, Mr. hopless look at your beautiful girl. So I looked I was exhausted. So I held down hold on said mashallah, that's amazing. That's beautiful. Do you want anything? I'll see you in the morning.
For me personally, there was nothing special about it. I mean, I don't That's me. I'm not having a go at anyone. That's just me.
So people sent me Nana, you know what? Because we're Arabs. Unfortunately, the sequences the Nana brothers because it's a girl. But trust me if your wife gives birth to a boy.
It's a different story, bro.
All right. So she gets pregnant. And then my next job handler was a boy. So there I was waiting and waiting for the angels. And I'm waiting for the light and I'm waiting for these miracles to come down. Please, brother, whoever's recording with their phones. Please put your phones down. Please know what to record me. Well, I feel like I've only made the announcement like 10 times. Please. No one record with difference.
So anyway, so I thought alright, he's a boy. I'm gonna see stars and fireworks and the boy came out Mr. Hub last I looked at the killer software. Thank you very much I've seen anyway. So this is my so there wasn't this attachment that everyone can. But then as you know, as days unfolded, kids started growing attachment started happening. Well,
I really started falling in love with my kids. And for the first two years, I felt nothing for my son. I don't mean nothing, but I didn't have you know, like how the Arabs insist on having a boy. And, like, I didn't really feel that my daughter just was my world, you know. But then as my son started growing, now he's going he's coming with me is holding my hand. He's calling me Baba. You know, he's talking to me. Wow, my heart started changing.
And I really started to feel this.
This unbelievable one.
So anyway, my son reaches an age I think he was maybe about three and a half.
Beautiful young boy. He reaches an age where I you know, I noticed that his eye
every now and then would turn in.
So obviously I was concerned. I took him straight to the doctor. I said to him, Listen, or make it very clear. He is my son. He means the world to me. Don't waste my time. Send me to the best in the country.
The best don't waste my time. Don't waste my time. Send me to the best in the country. And by Allah I am not joking. Well, long if it was going to cost me $1 million dollars. And I'm not joking. Well, no lovey if it was going to cost me $1 million. To fix this. I was ready and prepared to pay it. By and by Allah. I'm not exaggerating. And I'm not trying to impress anyone in the room. But that's my son. He means the world to me. So when I took him to the specialist and she sat him down, she did whatever tests she had to do.
She said to me, Mr. hopless look, I have to run some tests.
Whatever you have to do.
So basically, she sat us in this room, and she put these eyedrops in his eye. And let me just explain to you what I had to go through, I can promise you that there's a point to the story.
So there was my son three, three and a half years old. And he's naturally he's a shy kid. So he's seen doctors and, you know, and other people and, you know, instruments. So obviously, he was very nervous.
So she said to me, Look, we have to run some tests. And basically, this is how the tests when she said my son down on a chair, and she sent me on a chair opposite to my son.
Now above my head, was a computer screen. And above his head was a mirror so I could see what he was looking at. I hope that makes sense. Yes.
So she said to me, Look, we have to test his vision are super fine.
So naturally, as a father, I'm trying to encourage my son and I'm trying to make him not stress. My son's name is Ahmad and Farrokh. I said to my Maura, Amara, be strong, Okay, Baba, don't worry, habibi. You're gonna sit down, whatever you can see, I'm What are you, you tell her exactly what you can see. And don't stress. I'm trying to encourage him. I mean, he's my son. Trying to encourage you, don't worry. So he sat down on the chair, and he was worried. I mean, he was scared. He was freaking out naturally.
So she started putting it was numbers and letters and colors.
So when she first put them on, they were nice. And B. She asked him What do you see? He said, A? And it wasn't a surprise. Amaura Good on you, Baba. So happy and so proud who my son.
He smiled. And it was that small from that. It felt like you know, he's making me proud. As far as he's concerned. He's making me proud. So then he was a de Red Bull one for
ripping them out.
But then they got smaller.
Then he wasn't answering as fast.
And I could see it that I could feel it.
And then he started looking at me and he wasn't looking at the screen anymore. And she was asking, Oh, my What can you see? I said to my mother, I tell her Baba, but he's looking at me. Because I know he can't see it anymore. He couldn't work out what he was and he's looking at me. And he's I started tearing up and he said, We Baba you upset with me?
I was like, I'm more white. Like why would you think I'm upset over now? I love you. Have you been known? He said you
upset I said the baba. Now I'm overwhelmed and upset. So I'm what I'm proud of you. And he's looking and and I could see that he couldn't work it out. And I could read it. And we'll lay every part of me wanted to give him the answer. But I knew I knew that if I gave him the answer, I was only going to cheat him. That's all I'm doing.
So he's looking at me, he's looking at me and the t start rolling down his face.
And he said to me, Bob, are you upset? I was like, Man, why do you think that?
I thought well, well, Allah tested me just a little test. Just a little test and I'm a sinner. I'm not being humble. I don't see in front of you. I'm better than anyone. I know my sins. I know my shortcomings. But me, this corrupted sinner, when my son was in that position, all the life of me, I couldn't hold myself
will lie if he asked for my heart out and gave it to him. Yet the Prophet of Allah says on the Day of Judgment, with all of humanity, love to the father, who's a prophet is free from sin. He knows every single one of you is definitely from his need, definitely for this lineage.
When all of humanity goes to heaven, and then the father of Adam, help us get to see the state that we
the Prophet of Allah says what he says your father who's a puffer who said Get away from me enough's enough. See,
Allah has never been this angry before. And you will never be this angry again. I have my own problems to worry about.
The new one I think the Day of Judgment, it's it's just a big joke for you annoying.
It's a big game, as far as we're concerned.
That everything's Relax, relax. They were worried. They were stressed
You allow us to relax. They were the best of people and
so no one gets offended. I'm the worst and I got to be relaxed.
Allah is not playing games
my brother Your wife is real Jahannam is real
so what do you have to say about this one? You know mongkol Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Jabra sahih Hadith.
You sitting here trying to scare the people? How do you justify this hadith?
You know, I remember when the boys is to go out and do haram. You know, it's amazing. This is why stem was supposed to be a balance. But also in the Jews said what? The Jews said, Hey, we're the chosen nation. Plan. We're the chosen nation. If Allah wants to punish us, how will you He will throw us into the Hellfire for what?
Yeoman modern days counted days if if allow us to punish us count the days. They took one they went one extreme. The Christians win the other way. What did the Christian say? Christian said relax, do whatever you want, so long as you believe in Christ and that He died for your sins. Doesn't matter what you do come at the end of the day, crack open the beat and call it a day.
We become worse than the both
Muslims do whatever they want, when they want how they want. And then he justifies it again by telling me mancala Well,
what was your kulesza?
So let's answer this.
And this is the problem when you don't understand your Deen in complete the full picture. Try Muslims they look at religion through to through key Whoa, you know what the danger is by looking at a key Oh, even if the hadith is a
look at what the danger is. The manager of anyone who looks at a sahih Hadith through to for me is the same thing as a person who looks through a keyhole sees a young boy laying down and a man with a knife.
And there's blood on the knife. So he interprets that and says hey, the man is killing the boy. So he smashes down the door and runs running to grab the men. Only when he smashes the door down and things get bigger. He sees everything for what it really is. He realizes Whoa, that kid was a patient that needed surgery. And that man they had a knife was a doctor and that life
was an instrument for the surgery. He wasn't killing the boy. He was actually saving his life.
But look at the difference when you look at home and you look at the full picture.
So let me explain the Hadith to you.
We have a brother I'm gonna ask you. We have a brother. He's his name is violas
and brother veoma is here. He says La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah and he believes that with full faith and fully up in but our Brother Bo mercy doesn't believe in the Quran.
We enter China
What do you doubt for
but it's really
a test telling you the brother says Leila Hey Lola, Muhammad Rasool Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah. The Halal Jana, a beautiful Brother Bo merci says Leila Illa Allah, but he denies the existence of the Quran will he enter paradise Anthony? Why being extreme for men.
Boy being extreme
enough to feel the condition of the Hadith
that he believes in the Quran but doesn't believe in the angels.
So some of you already
know what the prophet meant exactly
what the prophet meant when he said this is that there's a long criteria that obviously needs to be met.
Then on top of that, those who died with conviction of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad those they will definitely enter gentlemen, but there's a criteria by fine
Got us then
the What about the Al Quran common smarty pants every time one of you grows a bead grows a gun was a nice I bet he thinks he's a chef.
Come on told me Allah smart Allah says no Quran was Matthew was your cooler shade the My Mercy encompasses all things
so yes, for his ice this I like that nothing before nothing after. So with a lot of hammer please humbled, la alum verse 156. Please, please homework. Halfway through the air last month Allah says
I'm not going to tell you what Allah says in the next chapter. I'm not going to tell you what Allah says in the next verse. The very next word.
The very next word after what Murthy was Kula Shea. Allah says faster
but it's restricted it belongs to a particular group of people.
Well, doesn't that change everything now?
Yes, Allah's Mercy encompasses all things, but Allah says first,
but this Rama, this mercy that encompasses all things, it will be given to these people who the first criteria of these people.
The first criteria of these people are mentions. What do they have?
They have fear of Allah Taqwa.
Fear of Allah, this is to who My Mercy belongs to. And those who follow the Prophet goes on.
Wow, I didn't see that before.
So let's wrap this up because I don't want to stress anyone out and let's not go too long with this. I've taken much of your time.
Am I taking away that I am of Allah? No. Is Allah the most forgiving? Yes. Does Allah forgive all sins? Yes. Did Allah allow the woman that was a prostitute that because she gave our because she gave an animal some water? Did Allah enter into paradise? Yes. Well I am not by any means taking away the Mercy of Allah by any means. What I'm saying is balance things.
those that work and strive and try to get closer to Allah these are the people whom this endless bounty this endless rock this is who it belongs to.
This talk tonight boss by no means was it to scale? By no means was it to make you lose hope on my if anything it was to wake you up and tell you that yes, gender is their gender is waiting but it belongs to those who strive and work
Allah will forgive your sins but not while you're sitting on your couch in cruise control.
What does the law say?
Hadith good see Sahadi
he says my slave when you come to me a hand spent
I come to you an arm's length.
Why slave when you come to me walking? I come to you running
my slave when you remember me.
I remember you
you understand the relationship? You have to make a move.
Allah will definitely forgive you since when you make a move when you come closer to him.
My brother Don't waste your life.
Hashtag don't play Russian roulette with your life. You only have one you only have one there's no second chance
what worried the Sahaba should worry you annoy
what stressed them should stress you and I
stop thinking that everything is okay because it's not.
Don't waste your life
is this scary?
Honestly, is there any doubt?
Is there anyone here that
He was he may have misunderstood my message
why my brothers Allah is the most compassionate Yes, yes. But you need to earn it. You need to strive stop wasting your life
move yeah remove my sister move. Vis OMA is in need of you. I need you
the Muslims are out we all need you stop wasting your life. Stop being just another face in the crowd
it's amazing. We give Allah our scraps we give Allah our scraps we give Allah what we don't need and we expect a lot to give us the greatest reward of the more
when we come to give charity how do we give our charity let's be honest.
Someone asks me for money not true. It's a thought process we start calculating I counted to pay my rent I need to pay for the car I need to pay for food I need to put them so you calculate everything that you need. You take that money out you put it aside then you look at what you don't need anymore. Then from that you sense of what okay now from what I don't need how much of this will I give Allah
and for that you expect for those Salalah
rather come to the machine
I'm very busy. I'll see if I get some time today. I might come
as you say you deal with scripts script what am I don't need anymore honestly look whenever they ask for clothing what clothes do you give
let's be real and look I'm not attacking by all means it's a good thing to Yes, but just be real.
When you do your clothes which clothes do you give you get the clothes you bought last week? What are you giving charity? What I don't need anymore
you give Allah your your your your really you're rubbish
I don't need this money. So therefore I'll give you the charity
we give Allah rubbish and we expect the ultimate reward in return.
If you Why don't you learn Arabic while I'm busy? What are you busy?
So anyway, you know, we need to start moving forward in a positive light. Stop wasting your time. Stop moving start sacrificing start making an effort with Allah
so that you may be successful
