great to realize I know that we have a program a youth conference, and you shall love this should be one of many.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

My topic

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

and what I want to talk about

00:02:48 --> 00:02:53

maybe some things you might have heard of before maybe some things you may have not heard before.

00:02:54 --> 00:03:05

If you have then the Quran says we're not cared for in the Quran, meaning it's a reminder remind one another because reminder reminding one another benefits the believers.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:51

We at the moment in the world, we are going through a very difficult stage we find many problems. There's global conflicts, social conflicts, disunity, problems, cares. And we find quarrels, debates, disputes, argumentation in every corner of every part of the globe, to people wherever they are, whether it's under home, family, parents, children, siblings, people cannot just get on with one another. Everybody has a opinion and an argument and a debate. Nobody wants to listen to anybody else. Unfortunately, we're living in that time. And there's global conflicts. There's problems everywhere.

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

There's conflicts, disunity, wherever we see

00:03:58 --> 00:04:20

in our relationships, we have a major problem in our relationships, parents, children at home family members, relatives, marriage problems, divorce problems. In law problems, you know, the greatest problems of the world. They say the greatest problem of the world or the oldest problem is mother in law duty, no problem. But there's problems everywhere baggage everywhere.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

The main cause

00:04:26 --> 00:04:45

and the main reason for these problems and the conflicts in argumentation and disunity that we find ourselves in and we see human beings involved in this one, there are many causes. But there's one very important or significant cause.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:52

You can consider it to be the the most effective cause.

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

And this causes not acting upon and not implementing a very

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

very important part of the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah a very important part of the teachings of

00:05:07 --> 00:05:11

the Command of Allah was part of the dialogue and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:13 --> 00:06:03

which is not we as Muslims and human beings in general but we as Muslims because we are trying to follow the Quran and Hadith and Quran and Sunnah and the teachings of Islam. We have not or we do not want to implement the teachings of the skeleton of the greatest cause is then the lack of spirituality. We have diseased, not diseased, diseased hearts, we need to go back to reforming our hearts and our souls. This reforming of our souls is actually in Islam further dying, which means it's obligatory, personally obligatory we don't like we have to pray five time praise is personally of a country upon every Muslim to professional the harasser manga ratio, more important than

00:06:04 --> 00:06:27

anything else. Likewise, it is obligatory on each and every individual man, woman, male, female, old young, whoever, wherever, to ensure that they work on the hearts on the spirituality they reform it, they remove the work on reforming their souls, and work on

00:06:29 --> 00:07:09

removing all the spiritual diseases known as the blameworthy character traits that have been mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah. Every single one is a list of took about one or two. But these spiritual diseases we have to actually actively, we need to work on this, it will not come in just like that. It's an obligation does give to the column means having a reformed heart, a reformed soul, and this is in the Quran. There's numerous verses numerous Hadith of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you see you see what when we look at Islam, when we look at the commands of the Quran and Sunnah we will look at the verses and the Hadith we find that the

00:07:09 --> 00:07:49

teachings of Islam have been divided into three categories. Pick up the Quran, the icon, the laws, the do's and don'ts, the do's and don'ts of Islam have been divided into how many categories three categories, look in the Quran, look in the Sunnah, all the commands and prohibitions, all the do's and don'ts all of them have been divided into three we have one category, category number one known as a hobby, the laws of appealed the belief system, okay, this is the first category, there are commands we have to believe in Allah we have to believe in the oneness of God, we have to believe in all the various attributes of us and data we have to believe in life hereafter about Angel we have

00:07:49 --> 00:08:37

to have belief in order the prophets and the books of Allah and all the scriptures and avoid the don'ts. The prohibition is like avoiding shittaka and associating partners with God, etc, etc. So that's just one one category of the do's and don'ts the commands and prohibitions we found in the Quran and Sunnah another category, second category of commands and prohibitions. The second category are the laws dealing with or relating to our external body. So that I do commands Salah offering salah is a external command, Center is an external command. Fasting is an external command. Hajj is an external command, right? Likewise, we have prohibitions just like we have duties we have dones

00:08:37 --> 00:09:25

Backbiting is haram sinful. It's externally Zina, fornication, adultery, stealing, murder, killing someone. All these are external things prohibitions externally. Likewise, we have the third category, just like we have to show that we implemented commands in the first category, we avoid the prohibitions in the first category, and just like we have to implement the commands of the second category, we have to offer Salah and circa John Solomon hij and avoid you know, the sins the prohibitions likewise, the third category, there are commands and prohibitions. There are do's and don'ts, we have a list of internal internal laws relating to the heart, we have commands, these are

00:09:25 --> 00:09:32

known as FBI, these obligations a Muslim must implement this.

00:09:33 --> 00:09:59

Internally, we have to ensure we have lost sincerity, we have to ensure we have some patients in Suffolk we have to ensure we have dialogue which is handled as in humility, we have to ensure that we have ethos which is giving preference to other people, we have the one could rely on Subhan Allah Subhan Allah subhanaw taala we ensure we inculcate within ourselves the love of Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu sallam, and likewise, we have

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

ambitions internally, the don'ts. pride, arrogance is unlawful. It's a major sin, love of dunya having love of dunya of the world, it's a spiritual disease. It's you have to avoid it. As I said, jealousy, hatred, enmity. We see all the problems in the world today is because of a diseased heart, lack of spirituality, lack of Reformed souls, every criminal, every abuser, every miser, Every thief, every fornicator. Every criminal, every person who lose, you know, in England, London, you know, what happened in the musicals is great means we've been done. And many of the scholars they said that, the main reason is, there's two reasons behind this. One is until human beings, humanity,

00:10:46 --> 00:10:59

not just Muslims until humanity, they do not come to realize they don't believe in God. They don't realize that they have to have done, they don't realize it in the next five, they will have to respond and be

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

they will be questioned, they'll have to, they'll have to answer to God, this God consciousness until they don't have double and God consciousness and until they do not reformed the hearts from spiritual diseases, then it will only get worse. And you know, this looting. It's wherever it is not on the streets. You know, this looting and this criminality takes place everywhere. Some people will do on the streets. And some people go into the other field or in fields of other countries are duped there are some people looting the banking system. There's people looting everywhere, greed is everywhere. It's it's not just these, you know, greedy people, these youngsters that are in London

00:11:42 --> 00:12:22

and everywhere in every department and department and at every level of society. But the only two things that will prevent people from causing this, this type of criminality is that they are they become aware that they will be answerable to Allah subhanaw taala to God, they are conscious that you know what, any anything I took even a penny no take up someone else's money. We will have to pay that back in the next life. We have to have that year clean in the next slide and reform our disease souls and hearts and the Quran is filled with this hadith and the Sunnah is filled with its What does Allah say in the Quran, holder the bat as a fellow mean or Suliman unfussy him yet through

00:12:22 --> 00:13:06

Allah him it, is it keeping your eye level full Katana? Well, heck no incredible cognitive ability movie, Allah says you know the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa Sahbihi send them once once the reason why the Allah sent them messengers of Allah he was salam. This wall Allah tells us the job description of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam, he says we're learning birth and Philomena Rasul Amin and forcing him to do it him islands will use a key him while you're on Kitab when tournament covering of Ebola will be he recites the book, your yet surely human, he teaches the book and he teaches the wisdom and the fourth part of the job of the messenger SallAllahu Sallam is

00:13:06 --> 00:13:35

that he spiritually purifies and he did spiritually purify his companions, his students, and they passed on their spirituality to their students. And this is a fantasy. This is the teachings of Islam out of the heavens have assays if you want to be successful in the next life, and in this life you want for now? Hey, Alan, what does that mean success and salvation in this world and the next world on Earth. It's from the same world for

00:13:36 --> 00:13:37

US law humans.

00:13:38 --> 00:14:25

The one who says God's purified the soul removed slowly and gradually it's a job. It's a work. It may take two years it may take 10 years it might take 20 years. Right? It's a job we are we are we are not here just like zombies. The Living Day, you know, in the land of the living dead. We have a job in this world. Islam is not just about just opinions and argumentation. And that's it. It's not just about all of that. It's about a job. It's about something we have to do with our lives. You know, sometimes we can have an argument about all these philosophical issues but we don't make a final salah. I mean to an artificial Salah is far better. None of any type of degree or any sort of

00:14:25 --> 00:14:59

knowledge will be of any benefit to any human if he does not offer his 510 price. Because it's far too high. You need Montero solid thermodynamics and fluid cover. What is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say one prayer you missed, you've left in the path of Islam. That's what he says in the Hadith even though this discussion of the scholars in terms of the meaning of the Hadith. So Islam is about working on your heart, been fulfilling the rights of God and fulfilling the rights of the creation. We have helped all that we have to fulfill. Allah has her book

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

Allah has rights, we have obligations, we have to ensure that we fulfill the rights of Allah, then we have to ensure we fulfill the rights of the creation. Creation means our parents, our children, our siblings, our spouses, husbands, wives, our siblings, our relatives, our cousins, people around us, the general Muslim community, and even non Muslims and even animals. Everyone has a right in Islam, we have an obligation, we have to ensure this is no we are not here to just you know, useless that we just start saying, We just debate and argue and we just learn certain things are and we become more philosophical. And that's it. Islam is about, you know, in enhancing your spirituality.

00:15:43 --> 00:16:23

This is what we see in the life of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam, this is what we see in the life of the Sahaba companions. This is what we see in the life of the tabby in the sight of the early scholars, each one of them if we saw the syrup seriously, brothers and sisters, we will feel ashamed to even be alive. If we saw how they were their spirituality, look at the Sahaba the type of selflessness, they will give their lives for others. You know, the stories like in the Battle of your MOOC and other places, you know, the story wants to win the battle. And there were people lying about your dying and one person he bought one young brother, he bought some water to

00:16:23 --> 00:16:51

his thirsty uncle. He said, Look, no, my brother here, he's thirsty. He is water gone up to him. He went to him. He said, No, no, there's another problem and he's dying. He needs more water than me. You went to him. He said no, the fourth person who went to the fourth person when he came to the fourth person, his he had left this world, his soul had left his body. So he came back to the third one. He had left this world as well. He came to the second one he left. The soul had left his body he came to his uncle. He's passed away as well. Given the lives

00:16:52 --> 00:17:20

a value in case came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said who will entertain this person? He companion and sorry companions at AOL Rasul Allah, I'll entertain him. He never He just said, Okay, I'll entertain you. entertain him, I'll take him home. He took home, he took him home. Without even what? Folding on his iPhone for your wife. You know, the problem is if you don't have the Wi Fi, you bring someone home, that's Yoga.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:26

But he just he went home, the wife said, what, I've got a guest.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:38

Guest we have nothing at home, we've got a small amount of food for the children. And that says, There's nothing at home to me, okay, just

00:17:39 --> 00:18:08

making sure I'm gonna sleep. Just don't cry, which has given them some photos and they made them go to see the children. He made them go to the mother made them go to sleep. He told the guest come inside, he told the wife to cook whatever's there. And what happened, the wife remain hungry, he'll remain hungry, he sat with his guest and pretended there was a light he put the lamp out. Pretending you know something happened those candles those days, he put the lamp out, and you pretend the

00:18:09 --> 00:18:47

meeting. And the guest is eating thinking that the host is also eating. And then guests didn't even realize that he never ate he sacrificed the food of his own family and his children for his sake. This is actually quite significant, significant because sometimes even when we do something good, we actually want others to realize, you know what, I'm doing something good. Do you know I sacrifice good for you today? You might not say like that. We might not say like that. But we will at least one than to know that. Look, Listen, I have done something for you. So you know next time when I need you, then you have to come to my house. Islam is not about transactions. It's not about buying

00:18:47 --> 00:19:00

and selling everything is for the sake of a mouse. And this is why I was saying that this is this is these are the this is the spirituality, the disease like I mentioned one, two, this the disease of real

00:19:02 --> 00:19:12

the spiritual disease. Ria, you know what RIA is? Everybody knows ostentation, showing off doing things for the sake of the creation?

00:19:13 --> 00:20:00

What does Allah say you're our own Anas is describing them when I was your own hypocrites. What are your inner pallida things you will just want to show people they do not have a glass the opposite of ostentation. The opposite of it is the last sincerity on our own. You Illa Dr will don't love them and see that our dean, we've been commanded that everything we do, from praying to fasting to donate team to give it a charity to being good to others, whether it's your family members, you only and solely have one intention to seek the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala That's it. Nothing else this is known as the sun in

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

The words of the hadith of Al Bukhari men sama Ramadan a key man and YT servant man karma Ramadan and even in Rocky seven men accommodated and Audrey Iman and YT seven Sam is a golden would we do things only for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala in normal I've never been yet the first Hadith in most Hadith books actually the right intentions if we don't have sincerity, no matter how big the Act may seem externally in the sight of Allah it's this morning nothing or Obama in Saudi and there's another Hadith of the line on volunteers to say robot handling surveyed into Kabiru who need the hammer in Karelian to salvage over me, sometimes an act seems major great huge in the sight of

00:20:47 --> 00:20:53

people. But according to of mine is very insignificant small because the intention is not that

00:20:55 --> 00:21:28

you are donating $20,000 but the intention is, I am very generous man. 20,000 For me, Look, I am giving donating. Okay, that nobody knows it's all in the heart. We can't accuse anyone of anything brothers and sisters. Okay. But this is everyone between them and God. Okay. So it's the intention, somebody might donate $1 That loss is there, according to Allah or Obama in Selenium to Kabiru Nia, the reward is more.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:53

This ostentatious rial is considered to be Schick and huffy masala Euro, Ashok, a minor, lesser type of ship. So anything we do, we have to ensure this is a spiritual disease. Unfortunately, we all have, we all have to work every one of us sisters, brothers, we have to work. Islam is a job. It's a work, it's a system in place we have to we have to work.

00:21:55 --> 00:21:59

It might take time, it's on TV, we have to work.

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

Even when we fulfill the rights of the creation, we have to ensure our intention is only to please Allah and nobody else. When I am good to my father, my mother, my brother, my sister, my teacher, my students, my husband, my wife, whoever I am good to Muslim, non Muslim.

00:22:22 --> 00:22:59

Anyone I am fulfilling their rights. My intention must be this is a class, I am doing it for the sake of Allah. Which means I'm not waiting for a return. I am not inviting you for my wedding, my wedding not saying as a person, I'm not inviting you for my wedding. Because then when you when the time comes, you will invite me No, that's not the intention. If you're if that's the intention, then you're buying and selling. I am good to my parents, not because there'll be good back to me. I'm not bringing up my children that when they grow up, here you come and go but

00:23:01 --> 00:23:43

that's a wrong intention. You do it for the sake of Allah subhanahu Dyana you're good to have Muslim brothers, sisters, non Muslims, whoever they may be. Do not wait for a return. Do not expect anything from anyone. That's actually the other man say the greatest ingredient to be happy in this world is have no expectation from anyone. Once we start having expectations from anyone will be the happiest people in the world. Because you're good to someone he never even said thank you. Somewhat MindNode how many times I speak to couples, the wife is forming and saying but you know, I do this by do this. I do this but he still doesn't do anything for me. The husband is used says you know I

00:23:43 --> 00:24:22

treat her so well wishes. So look, you'll you'll be more different next time. Don't worry if he's not giving. I'm not saying that you just suffer. Of course it did. There are levels. But if it's not to an extreme level, then small things can be overlooked because he won't ever you're doing your own due because the other party will be good to you. Your reward is in the next life. Allah will reward you. And it's actually in the Hadith Eva Bihari les Salah was a little bit of McCarthy, while Kenyan was with Olivia Gucci. Rahim, who was the marine of maintain of ties is not the one who maintains ties when others maintain ties with him. That's not the person who's really maintaining ties because

00:24:22 --> 00:24:27

that's easy. Someone's good to me and I'm good back to them in return. That's the easiest thing in the world.

00:24:28 --> 00:24:40

The real maintain of ties is the one when people cut him off. He or she still maintains ties for the sake of a box. That's the real test. And that's the job.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:59

So this is what it allows me in sincerity, doing anything and everything for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. When you donate It's for the sake of Allah when you want to give a gift to someone just for the sake of Allah for the pleasure of Allah to acquire and attain the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah for rewarding them

00:25:00 --> 00:25:43

Next time that's the only objective of a Muslim. There is no other ulterior motive. You are not a businessman when you're acting upon Islam. You know sometimes in business you have ulterior motives when we smile at someone is for the sake of Allah not a business smile or a customer service mind, you know, can you know the customer service and artificials mind? Okay, hi, thank you. You're welcome. So the customer service mind this is not a business mind the Hadith the messenger said Allah Allah is sunnah you would smile at people. Nowadays people have become too rigid and sometimes they connect it to practicing upon Islam I met a brother in London I had a program so languages so

00:25:43 --> 00:26:22

harsh and he's so frustrating. And I said to my brother, he came to ask a few questions. I said, Relax, relax, you're very tense. It's totally out of our scope in terms of that said once you become practicing that said, it's all about just dying tomorrow and you might just die in the next minute and that says, you know everything. There's nothing in the world Yes, everyone. Some people become so extreme reason they can't even smile. They think you know, smiling at people is actually you becoming less practicing. Learning from the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is sunnah was to smile, abou out of your mouth and who he would constantly smile or tell his wife said, all

00:26:22 --> 00:27:07

over delta, why do you keep smiling Your goodness in your comments? People will say you, you're crazy. He said, I saw my beloved Habibie sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always smiling. And because of that I always in the middle of our movie and teleca RKB, which is taller Hadith. It's from righteousness is from being practicing Muslim, that you meet your fellow brothers sister with a pleasant smiling face. This is what Islam teaches, doesn't matter if it's from another group from another background from another mother hug or whatever. Sometimes we smile more or non Muslims and we can smile at other Muslims from different backgrounds. That's crazy. You know, you see in the

00:27:07 --> 00:27:49

machine or this brother is from this crew, he prays like this. So he prays like days of cardio and the next moment you come out of the month you go to the pan, how the weather's really nice, what's happening in Paris, maybe that this person that I miss has involved in his heart. You can't smile and someone who has a man who reads the Quran in the morning and someone who's not a Muslim is smiling at them. You can smile at the numbers, but this Muslim deserves more smiles than this non Muslim. But this is a problem we're living in because we we've got ourselves into these mentality of groups. So this is what Islam teaches. Whatever we do for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala last, one

00:27:49 --> 00:27:54

of the spiritual diseases we have hassled, it's a major disease.

00:27:56 --> 00:28:11

When the shattering has been either hassled the first person who took money, please somebody was talking about the police. The first seem to be committed. If police committed the sin of jealousy and this is worries, a HELOC. Attorney will now perhaps corruptible?

00:28:12 --> 00:29:02

Mineiro, Dr. Hulan clearly, how can I prostrate and make sense when I'm when I'm quoting from fire? Now the lesson is not just a story that we just it's like a thrilling story. Let's have a philosophical debate about the story. The lesson is brother, sister, you have to work day and night to rid yourself of the disease of jealousy. Think at night before going to sleep off the long term thing. Am I a jealous person? Am I being jealous when I see my fellow worker promoted? Or do I have jealousy to me? Something happened to me when my mother in law is crazy. No other daughter in law is something happening to me when I see someone this guy's too rich. If something happened to me in my

00:29:02 --> 00:29:07

heart, am I burning because I see someone has, you know better health or better looks.

00:29:09 --> 00:29:53

If that's the case, then this is a spiritual disease. No one. No one is harmed by this crucial disease except the hazard except the jealous himself. Because you go you will suffer yourself you'll be frustrated. That other person he doesn't even know about it in most cases. And this is actually a major sin. We are objecting to the color of Allah because Allah has divided tuxie Remember God has given people different gifts and bounties. Someone who was given wild somebody help somebody looks somebody's family, someone there's someone that everyone's been given something. This is the Taksim of Allah. Genesis a major disease a young woman hasn't been the center of the IMA who dealt with

00:29:53 --> 00:29:59

sound Hadith years ago. It hasn't been it hasn't yet. Cohen has an article Mata Kula

00:30:00 --> 00:30:10

How to Avoid jealousy. Because jealousy eats away consumes away from your good deeds like fire eats away work. You know how despite eating

00:30:11 --> 00:30:36

slowly, gradually, slowly, slowly, jealousy will eat away all our good deeds. And we must pray to Allah that you remove this disease from us. This this disease of jealousy, having hatred having enmity and hatred in the heart, jealousy and hatred in the heart. This this idol boon, a major disease for anyone.

00:30:38 --> 00:31:03

You know, the amount of knowledge I've been handed one of the great Imams of this ummah he has written in one of his books and apart from it, he says that if you look he has a chapter, he says, you know all occasions instead of me all the occasions when Allah has a rational mercy descends and Allah's forgiveness dissents you look in the Hadith that there are certain people Allah forgives at this time at this time at this time at this time.

00:31:04 --> 00:31:15

I took all those occasions, there's always a mention that the one who has hatred and the one who cuts off ties, the one who's got enmity Allah doesn't forgive.

00:31:16 --> 00:31:34

There's a sound Hadith in the Muslim. In other cases, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, ALLAH forgives everyone Yarwood hola hola whether you should be ashamed. The one who believes in Allah, the Oneness of Allah doesn't commit ship. Allah forgives everybody on Mondays and Thursdays.

00:31:36 --> 00:31:44

Except a little rainy, except the team who have deserted one another, they don't talk to one another.

00:31:45 --> 00:32:00

Allah forgives everybody on Mondays and Thursdays. Except those you are who it is sent to the angels wait until these two don't reconcile until they don't start talking to one another. Forgiveness is closed, Mercy is closed.

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

Now you will learn to have a ha who follow philosophy from an Haryana AHA who focus on Informatica doesn't matter now. The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Do not desert your fellow Muslim brother or sister over three days and three nights. Whoever deserves this enmity this Katya to write you've broken ties. Whoever does that I died in that state when I was eight years old, that person shall be cast into the fire of *.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:36

I mean,

00:32:37 --> 00:33:01

this continual regime having enmity not speaking to people, and it's even worse when it's in the family, how many families we see brother not speaking to a brother, sister, not speaking to a sister, even worse, son, not talking to the Father. And you know, what, many of the times, you know what the problem is? What is the cause?

00:33:02 --> 00:33:06

What is the cause? On many occasions, what's the cause?

00:33:08 --> 00:33:15

You know, that is money issues, or badania rock, that's another spiritual disease. Dunya rock solid for the

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

love of dunya is the root of every evil that takes place. Someone dies inheritance, the families are divided into 25 years. I just met her family last week. People know that because of money, people fight and argue because of a few dollars. And it just goes on, again from the dunya spiritual disease.

00:33:39 --> 00:33:48

So chances are we have to remove it, we have to remove the disease of selfishness. Very selfish. We live in a world where I myself and only

00:33:49 --> 00:34:32

nobody else matters. We have to we have to remove that. We have to replace it with spirituality, the praiseworthy character trait which one? This this trait or this quality is called ephod, giving preference to others. And I mentioned two stories within the companions. Look at the early Muslims, they will prefer everybody over themselves. Every time we need to put ourselves in the shoes of the others. Not literally speaking, I'm not telling you to convert someone's shoes. But you know that phrase, every time when you're dealing with someone go on the other side and see how it feels. When you're an employer. The only thing we do is we think from our perspective, we have two criterias one

00:34:32 --> 00:34:56

criteria for ourselves and other criteria for someone else. Islam says bring this quality of ethos. If you're an employer, think about the employee. If you're an employee, think about the employer. If you're a landlord, think about the tenant. If you're a tenant, think about the landlord. If you're a husband, think about the wife, your wife, think about the husband. If you're a father, think about your son if you're assented to by your father. If you're a brother think about the other brother. If you're

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

the ruler think about the gentleman

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

Public, everyone has to think about the other side. And that's what Islam says if ah, you know when you deal with your tenant think if I was a tenant go on this iPhone, okay now I'm the tenant, okay? If you're a husband become the wife monetarily speaking okay but just for one moment thing if I was a wife would I want my husband to treat me like this fear wife think how is it to be a husband? Put yourself in the shoes of the others. Allah says well you Pharaoh in other unfussy him what I will tell them became Kasasa. These This is the quality the Companions, they would prefer others over themselves with their own island and food to him.

00:35:37 --> 00:36:08

And I said, Jen, I said, enmity what? What is the hadith of Moses that I might say, what's the quality? You need to bring in this mutual love and harmony? This is an amazing heavy aluminum. I haven't been hammered on your loved one who is Muslim. He relates to this hadith he says, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, me no matter what a higher of human life, whether you're a believer, what's the definition of a Muslim? This is a definition being defined in a believing that is being defined.

00:36:10 --> 00:36:24

According to the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam or Allah? Who is the movement? What's the definition? He says, A believer is referred to in order to meet

00:36:25 --> 00:36:50

an abode of love. A utensil, it's a fountain of love. A place where love pours out with a higher female love, what are you love? There is no good in the one who does not love others and others don't love. This is the quality this is the attribute this is the characteristic This is the trait. This is the trait of a believer.

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

And we have some more time is

00:36:54 --> 00:37:04

meaning angry more intended, but since like pride and arrogance, a major severe disease in abakada You headboard with a Cadbury Nova does not love the one who has kibble

00:37:06 --> 00:37:47

pride and arrogance is a major layer the whole gender term and kind of you call the behemoth called the robin Gibbon, someone who has a small actions worth of pride. The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, This person shall not enter Jannah and Paradise, we need to remove that Pankratz. Everyone knew we find many of us we are arrogant, one of us, myself included. That's why we have these problems. Many of the times our arguments and debates is because I just for one moment, don't want to inculcate the quality of Dawa to humbleness humility. Islam teaches us even if you disagree with someone you disagree with a lot of other with a lot of humility. Okay, I you know,

00:37:47 --> 00:37:54

maybe maybe I misunderstood but you know, speak even the tone that we use full of arrogance. Yeah.

00:37:55 --> 00:37:58

I think you're wrong. You know, this. That's not only to talk.

00:37:59 --> 00:38:22

We need to speak and converse with people look at the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right? How would he speak into his enemies? Do you see the Messenger of Allah Allah or Islam being arrogant? The way you would walk? Look into Shama and these are sound hydroquin He would walk he would slightly you know, put his head down look, she might have momentarily who wouldn't walk like this.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:30

To me walking, he would walk like this with his hands down, look down his head down. This there's a way of walking

00:38:31 --> 00:39:20

unfortunately, there's too much pride and arrogance within our communities. And so we need to remove this disease of pride and arrogance meant our other dinner here Rafa woman, Tucker berawa, good luck, the one who, the one who has pride, Allah throws him down the one who has the horrible humbleness and humility, Allah elevates him. And knowledge brothers and sisters should bring more humility, knowledge increase, if it's true knowledge, if it's for the sake of Allah, if it's for the pleasure of Allah, if it's really acceptance is from Allah then it brings more humility. And if you see someone learning and not having humanity, then this is not beneficial knowledge. And normally

00:39:20 --> 00:39:25

what happens someone who has better artificial knowledge have you seen a big fat fish in a small pond?

00:39:26 --> 00:39:52

I went to the aquarium last week. Saw this massive fat fish really juicy juicy fish Falangist taking eating big fat fish, small tank small small fishes trying to scare everyone chase all of the fishes on the bus that fish probably thinks and you know what, I'm the biggest person in the world. But what does that mission oh come on in the world is like Jupiter and Mars and other planets out there. You and Sam are talking about

00:39:53 --> 00:40:00

a one eyed person becomes a Kingdom the Kingdom of the blind. Okay, that's what happens when some

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

One has a bit of knowledge they read a few Heidi's a field verses of the Quran few words of Arabic few like they for higher and higher Kabbalah and a few things not a few words here and there they become I know everything you know a few things the early scholars used to say good lemons Dr. Amon is dead to your pain in the more you increase in knowledge the more I became aware of my ignorance when I see water that is in a small cup when if you acknowledge that it's this much, you think everything's in my grasp, I know everything cover momentum of this Atlantic Ocean sea watch on your on your left see this ocean of knowledge, then you realize that you don't even have nothing you can

00:40:39 --> 00:41:22

have 600 years of life there was college in earning terms they will not do anything except study still they will humble you know, there are scholars this period Imams who actually sacrificed everything some of them would hardly eat. Some of them didn't even marry because they were too busy study. Seriously people aren't the amount people time era and hola Imam Adela, we are him Allah Abuja, Lira poverty regime of Allah, these peoples they were married, there was a female, Muslim Karim. Allah was Rahim Allah. She was a great Maha data. She taught hundreds of men Hadith, she never married all their life. Like some of them beings to sleep, nothing else they would know

00:41:22 --> 00:42:06

100,000 Hadith by heart. In the early times a half it was a title given to somebody who had memorized 100,000 Hadith when the change is not by heart by memory, not a few translations of sahih al Bukhari and still these guys are so humble, you can't even see anything they don't show no arrogance. And this is what we need to bring them within ourselves is always everything should be for the sake of Allah we seek knowledge, keep it for the sake of Allah try to benefit others make dua for others. If you really see someone doing something wrong, advise them with goodness, he has a good preaching of gentleness with politeness. Other leaders a video of pickup in Hikmah with wisdom

00:42:06 --> 00:42:15

with will move over to Hassan and I end on this that lot of times people say look, but it is my brother, he's doing something wrong, or he's not understanding Islam properly.

00:42:17 --> 00:42:56

Of course, okay, go and give him counsel and give him good advice. But we do have for him as well. Rather than arguing spend one hour at night intelligence emulate cry, shed some tears, nobody's watching you, Oh Allah, my brother or my sister, you know, I think he's in a wrong methodology. Two hours currently, and the next morning, I'm going to inshallah go and speak to him, although I want you to guide him. If you really, if it was really for the sake of Allah, and then leave it if it doesn't accept whatever you have to say, because you your your duty has been fulfilled, but we won't cry for them, we want to shed tears for the world and make dua for them. Because it's not about

00:42:56 --> 00:43:41

really caring for that person. It's about what just showing our spirits superiority, it's about just my group, my set my you know, the median and my family and my whatever. So we have to come out of this me myself, I attitude, be humble, we need to be gentle, we need to be polite towards people. And inshallah if we do that, just all these crucial time, as I said, there's no time really to elaborate but it's a it's a job. It's a work, it's farm says we have to work on our hearts, this spiritual heart, okay, this rule and soul and heart, we have to work on it. You know, even even this room or even animals we share this with the animals, the poet said Arica Roshi, a statement about

00:43:41 --> 00:44:23

either home or in the royal marriage, I said in son, look after your soul, look after your heart, work on it, nourish it. Because this bio spiritual heart you are distinguished from animals, because even animals have souls, even the chicken and the goats and the elephants and the lions and the cats, they also have it but you as a believer, the way you distinguish yourself is alayka the route work on the spiritual heart. This is the spirituality connected to the physical heart. And we have a job that we have to work on our hearts. And remember that we have to die one day, you know all these enmities and argumentation and debate and fighting and quarreling, and all the problems that are

00:44:23 --> 00:44:59

talked about, it's not going to benefit us anything. And I'm just ending with this. I just need to end this but there's a law in the Muslim amendment. That sounds odd, but it's just one line on that hadith. There was a one companion sounds of your course or the Aloha and one semester you said Allahu Allah, he was sitting with the Sahaba companions in the masjid. He said to you, earlier Alikum Raju, Jana. Soon the man who entered the masjid is a man of paradise. Everybody looked Who is it? This all sort of know your costs. Next day, same statement, same third date, same statement, same man. After three days another companion or the last, you know, last

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

But he said, I ran after him. And I said to him, You know what? I didn't tell him really the reason, which is that I've got some issues at home. Can I just stay at your house for three days? I need to stay at your house. He said, I wanted to see what was he doing at home that made him we might have partners. He said, I stayed with him and I was observing him watching

00:45:18 --> 00:45:56

him do nothing. He's not writing a book against some group. Okay? He's not all in about a philosophical issue. Nothing new, even though the basic obligations he said he wouldn't even wake up for family, which we should but at that time, he wasn't probably, he says nothing. After three days, I couldn't resist. I said to him, You know what, really, this is a reason why I wanted to stay at your house. What's that action would you do that made you amount of Jannah? He said, No, who are you llama, right. Whatever you see, that's it. Nothing really. I said, maybe just wanting a higher I need that urge you do

00:45:57 --> 00:46:13

any other high level like, except that I have no jealousy towards anyone. And in another you have Muslims of Imam Muhammad. He said, Oh, my God, we're laser, you all be a gremlin.

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

Every night I go to sleep in a state that I have no animosity, no resentment, no hatred towards no negative feelings towards anybody with a clean heart. And those are the people of paradise. And these are the new centers we see some people simple person, this guy with this guy, it isn't sharp. Here are some simple people coming to Main Street. They just seen how to run bash at the Alabama law UC Santa Barbara. These guys are simple people. And these are the type of people Allah loves because they have no animosity towards anyone in the heart. Sorry for cleaning up time that I'm going to end with this insha Allah Allah grant me first of all, of course in order for you in order for us to

00:46:55 --> 00:47:04

Chava the ability to practice and some of the things that were said which have been supplied for listing Barack Obama we could have could have already had our stuff in Lahore set alongside them and has given them
