Dr. Sala thought tonight The trouble with the use today will be in microscopic look at the debilitating issues underscoring Generation X, Y and Z after day from the sluggish attitude towards respecting deadlines to being punctual and your lack of work ethics to the misplaced overconfidence attitude.

Yahoo local Puma Yesha, one Hualalai, Moodle Cody.

00:04:41--> 00:04:48

It is Allah Almighty Who created you from the state of weakness.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

When you were in the US,

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

then after you were born, and your toddlers were very vulnerable babies

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

Children use then he made the transition from weakness into strength. So medalla mean body, barfing kuwa.

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

sha Allah 1617 1820 2527 lifting weight,

00:05:22--> 00:05:36

making like 10 miles jogging in the track or on the treadmill, build the muscles racing, then eventually, the curve doesn't keep going up forever.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

It doesn't a lot of mighty drew the graph in this area.

00:05:44--> 00:05:52

Well, he said, Then, after strength he made Baffin washa

00:05:53--> 00:05:58

the transition again is into weakness, and senility

00:05:59--> 00:06:07

and to weakness and senility, and in another area, then after having knowledge, the person will have no knowledge

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

about their inventory. And sometimes even they forget the names. So panela This is how vulnerable how weak the person becomes. So, the idea gives us a glimpse over the Golden Age,

00:06:26--> 00:06:48

the best of the lifespan of any person, which is what the stage of strength, the stage of coma, where the person must take advantage of this stage to the best of their ability. Because according to a Casanova sorry, may Allah have mercy on him. He says that every day,

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

that goes by

00:06:52--> 00:07:07

every day that the sun rises upon, it tells us, oh, son of Adam, take advantage of me take full advantage of me. Since if I leave, I shall not come back until the day of judgment.

00:07:08--> 00:07:23

I shall not come back until the day of judgment. And before that, in the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam assayed many stellar hufa who love baboon

00:07:25--> 00:07:27

means learn

00:07:28--> 00:07:37

when the person does wrong to himself, when the person does injustice, to his or her own self, how,

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

if yesterday and today are like,

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

this is what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said,

00:07:47--> 00:08:30

If today and tomorrow will be a like, nothing new. He didn't learn anything new. He didn't benefit anything new. It didn't pile up a bunch of good deeds or has an act more than yesterday. If the two days are alike, then that person has done in justice to himself. Minister yml file another one miskeen is a loser. Because the capital some of the believer, what is the capital sum of a believer? How much do you possess? How much do you need to have to say, I'm a rich person, the capital some of the lever is time

00:08:31--> 00:08:35

is his or her lifespan, this is what we possess.

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

This is what we can actually make benefit out.

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

And that's why we have to take advantage of that. And since the curve

00:08:45--> 00:08:57

is shown by a level mighty and this is another answer, and so on. So we know beforehand that you're strong today, you're powerful today, Mashallah, you can do 200 jumping jacks.

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

But very soon, you will end up praying sitting on the chair.

00:09:07--> 00:09:31

Pretty soon, maybe you will end up praying on your bed, on your spread. Why? Because this is a tradition of life. None of us is immortal. None of us is immune again is the transitions of life. And the changes which must take place in order to give room for another generation.

00:09:32--> 00:09:37

So each and every one of us in order to take advantage must leave a fingerprint,

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

a fingerprint to be recognized not only by people, to be recognized by Allah, by His angels, by the righteous people, be recognized by people isn't bad. By the way. It's a sign that especially when there is either the vast majority of people or there is a general consensus or people

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

I will miss this man he used to be a good man.

00:10:04--> 00:10:18

This man has taught us a lot. This men have done us a lot of favors. This man have served the community, a lot of good. Once a funeral passed in front of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:10:19--> 00:10:40

his companions were sitting first now Allah you have higher they admire that person said also this man used to be Mashallah very helpful. He used to be very righteous used to be man of manners used to be a man of his word used to be very generous. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam remarked sane wotja but

00:10:42--> 00:11:09

they didn't really understand what he meant by saying what about so they let go. Then another funeral while they were sitting passed by first name Alia Sharon. They did not admire that person liked the first one rather they said the opposite so Alhamdulillah finally you get rid of him. He was such a troublesome man. He was such an evil person, he was such he was such. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam remarked saying, watch I bet

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

some of the Sahaba say they are Salalah Mahajan that in the first time you said what about when we say this man was good? And in the second time you also said the same thing What about the same Mr. The word whatever it means do confirmed yeah and he he said a man well as for the first person for the first person you admired him for why'd you about Laval Jana?

00:11:38--> 00:12:18

Because you admire them and all of you there was like a general consensus that this man used to be a good man. So whatever but no agenda he's due to enter Paradise has been confirmed as for the letter person, because you did the opposite for our job but no, no. Easy to enter fry. He said, Because and I'm sure the law he feel are you are the witnesses of Allah on earth. So your testimony whenever you testify for the favor of somebody officially, you know, there is no reason to forge your testimony, all of you the Sahaba of this fine for the favor of somebody or again is it whatever.

00:12:20--> 00:12:49

So, in this very short life span of hours, especially this youth period, the Golden Age, we find the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had advised us repeatedly to take advantage of this time. Listen when he says l 10. m the word obtaining money means the old booty the water spoils, taking, take advantage of seize this opportunity never wasted.

00:12:50--> 00:12:58

Take advantage of your health before you get sick. Take advantage of your wealth before you turn poor.

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

Take advantage of your life before the expire.

00:13:05--> 00:13:09

Take advantage a few years before you old and so on.

00:13:11--> 00:13:27

I'm pretty sure you all know the sound Hadith in which Rasulullah sallallahu selama said there are seven categories of people whom Allah Almighty well shelter with a shade which he will create specially for them on the Day of Judgment.

00:13:28--> 00:13:33

Are you all familiar with this hadith Serato you will know Malone field will lay

00:13:34--> 00:14:21

something little irrelevant to the topic. But it's very important to clarify because once this hadith is mentioned, many many ordinary Muslims and even some seekers of knowledge assume their worldview literally his shade that he will have a shade and this is absolutely false. Because to have a shade, you have to have a source of light on top of you and there is nothing above Allah Do you think that the sun would be above Allah will create a shade and you have no borders and limits and boundaries? Absolutely a force. So why did he say feel really he in his shade? In a shade which he will create to shelter those lucky people may Allah make myself and you brothers and sisters and

00:14:21--> 00:14:44

our loved ones amongst those who are lower shelter under his shade on the day when there will not be any shade but his now you know the word his shade means water. Okay, not his personal shape. So one of those seven categories, and it's not seven individuals, seven types of people, one of those seven categories.

00:14:46--> 00:14:57

shabu Nasha a theory bad Attila a young man CEB a young man who grew up in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

why

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

I believe

00:15:03--> 00:15:11

the mission of those seven categories of people, this is the hardest one of all of them, we have this achievement.

00:15:12--> 00:15:28

Because one of those categories is to give to charity. So privately so that your left hand doesn't know how much your right hand have spent. Even if you do that, once here, make sure that you don't just keep the pocket change in your pocket beforehand, you know that it's a few

00:15:29--> 00:15:51

few quarters, and you just don't know them. So if you do it once, you're one of them, but to maintain the state of stability and steadfastness on the state path, throughout your youth, so that you will grow up with you and you will grow old. And the steadfastness will grow stronger as you grow older. is an easy

00:15:52--> 00:15:56

isn't easy, but it's achievable. How,

00:15:58--> 00:16:15

first of all weather for the use, for the elders for the youngsters, Allah Almighty have taught all of us in Surah Al ahzab, la pada, can Allah comfy rasulillah He also worked on how Santa to lemon

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

law, Hawaiian Yeoman, here our

00:16:21--> 00:16:30

Casio, indeed for you, for the believers in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam

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

the best role model,

00:16:35--> 00:17:19

the greatest example to be followed for you for the believers, for those who believe in Allah and in the last day is Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So if I'm going to share with the youth, with the elders, with the youngest daughters, with women, with any category of Muslims, anything then we must set the example Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, then you can provide references from his companions from our previous sisters from atterberry from the scholars, but how can you just speak about good conduct or great achievements without setting the example the role model Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:17:22--> 00:17:42

in the Hadith, which is collected by Emmanuel Buhari, Rahim Allah Allahu taala Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said to the elders say to the elders, is to also be Sheva be Hira. Take good care of the youth.

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

Take good care of the youth.

00:17:48--> 00:18:02

I enjoy it upon you to be kind to be gentle to be merciful with the youth This is also Lai Salah Salah Why is it Indeed Allah have sent me with the truth will Hanafi it is Samhain

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

yet Halla furnish Chabad will Holla

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

Holla Holla funny. The difference is just a.on the top of the letter ha

00:18:19--> 00:18:29

Bye, but it makes a big difference how leffen is Chabad? Those who followed me were of the youth. Abu Bakr was a man of barbarous man Ali, Zaid,

00:18:30--> 00:18:31

Mr. abney, Yasser

00:18:33--> 00:18:42

Mossad, Norma they were all youth even in Medina and who are opposed in a shoe, the elders, they are, you know,

00:18:43--> 00:19:28

they resent any changes or any reform in general. Of course, there are some exceptions, but this is what the prophet sallallahu Sallam stated and it is a fact. So when we address the use here, or today with a few advices It doesn't mean at all that that we have a very bitter taste again is them. Or we feel that our own Mati and they misbehave No, it's simply because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said it's also being Hira. Take good care of them, because those who supported me from the beginning were the youth, while those who oppose me and fought against me and led the campaigns against me were the elders.

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

Okay, they don't want to change.

00:19:33--> 00:19:38

But also Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam thought they use a lot of lessons.

00:19:40--> 00:19:45

For innocence, he said lace Amina mela mewa, clear Kvr Anna,

00:19:46--> 00:19:50

one who does not honor our elders doesn't belong to us.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Now because I happen to live in seeking knowledge. And maybe you've got your masters your ijazah in the six books of hiding

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

You just in the Sivan dialects of the Quran and Masha Allah you have become very well versed in fact

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

that you deal with the elders as they are bunch of ignorant and they don't know much and we have to give them the right position.

00:20:20--> 00:20:27

That was not the attitude of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, if you truly belong to this oma, you better understand the following.

00:20:28--> 00:20:35

He said sallallahu Sallam one who does not honor the elders doesn't belong to us,

00:20:36--> 00:20:52

no matter how high you get, in any position, or any position, even including knowledge, you still you still like that before the elders, but you know better and you know more, learn from the,

00:20:53--> 00:21:21

from the risk from the kindness of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, stop being judgmental of others, especially the sinners, whether elders, or use of your age or younger, because this is a dilemma. This is killing any person including the person who has become well versed in the deen with regards to memorizing because if he doesn't understand he's simply half have

00:21:22--> 00:21:30

yet to implement only after he comprehends what we have what he has learned. Yani

00:21:33--> 00:21:40

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam happened to see a Bedouin,

00:21:41--> 00:21:46

who got up and he passed urine, he literally urinated in the masjid.

00:21:49--> 00:22:17

Whenever you learned about this Hadith, and I'm pretty sure that you have heard this hadith many times before. Whenever you read or you have learned this hadith Did you ever imagine experiencing anything like that? Did you ever imagine positioning yourself in the position of the Sahaba? And what do you have done in case that somebody simply got up in the machine and he started urinating? Did you ever think about it?

00:22:18--> 00:22:21

Guess what? It happened right in front of my eyes.

00:22:24--> 00:22:40

In one of the most beautiful massages, and they got the carpet, imported from handmade from here, and they're very expensive. Were prayed fetish. And this guy just got up, unzip this fence. And he relieved himself

00:22:41--> 00:22:45

right in the middle of the mesh. So Hannah, let's just imagine

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

what the prophets Allah says, I didn't say what would he have done? No, because he have done that already. So when the Sahaba rushed towards this man to beat him up, to kick him off the master to throw him away.

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

The Prophet sallahu wa sallam did not address the manner that he addressed them. He said, let us you

00:23:05--> 00:23:08

know, scare him off. Do scare them off.

00:23:09--> 00:23:20

They said that Oh, leave him Let him finish. I will lie. I swear he said let him finish. And this is someone had to let him finish.

00:23:22--> 00:23:28

Then when he finished, it will leave to me say just bring me a bucket of water or pour it over his urine and we'll take care of

00:23:30--> 00:24:18

then he spoke to him in private and he said My brother is bad when illiterate. You know? Is it my brother? This is my shed This is a piece of worship. We do not answer the poll of nature here. You got to go outside and say so when the man so how Cain was Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem, to him versus what the Sahaba did to him, you know the water to beat him up. The Prophet sallahu wa sallam internalize the wisdom which Allah Almighty bestowed upon him Imagine if he was on the run? Why? He is still drifting you're in all over. So in a state of soiling and contaminating one single spot, you'd be arriving all over the fashion. No, let him finish in that spot. We'll clean the spot after

00:24:18--> 00:24:25

he finishes and don't scare him off because if you do, he may leave and never ever come back.

00:24:27--> 00:24:30

may never ever come back. Why?

00:24:31--> 00:24:47

Because it is our behavior. Which other attracts or worse people off? Once in one of the malls in Texas. I was on something in a shop I used called Mothercare.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

Then the cashier, the girl figured out that my name is Mohammed Oh, you're a Muslim. I said yes. She said I'm Muslim to was to me. She didn't look like a Muslim.

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

I said, Oh, great. And why didn't you go to the machine? She said I used to.

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

And what happened? She said, I quit.

00:25:10--> 00:25:51

Why did you quit? It's very important to understand why in order to avoid it in order to fix the problem. She said, as you see, I'm, I'm a poor woman, I support myself. I have to work hard to support myself. Most of the community members, the Muslim community members, or rich people, they all drive Mercedes and Lexus and all of that. And when they get together for dinner, the women, they keep bragging about the latest year model, the diamond ring, the Rolex watch the car key, and the silk fabric, and they sit in the middle of them, like I don't belong here.

00:25:53--> 00:25:57

I don't belong here. This is not my place. So that's why she quit.

00:25:58--> 00:26:14

And Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam I said, in my main kimono figurine, he said that to Sahaba. Some of you are repellent the word people of the make them hate the deen because of their misbehavior. You know when he says so?

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

It's a very interesting story.

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

Rather than Java rhodiola. Ron is a great it's a hobby.

00:26:23--> 00:26:29

He used to have very melodious voice. He lived far away from LSU to number one. And whenever

00:26:31--> 00:26:58

his people asked him to lead the prayer, there is a prayer delayed prayer. He said, No, no, no, no. I love to pray behind the Prophet Solis. And he's a young man, he can walk back and forth even in the darkness. They said, but we love to hear your voice. What about this? Why don't you go ahead and pray Russia with the prophet and we'll be waiting for you. Here you come and lead us again for Asia prayer. This is a sound Hadith.

00:27:00--> 00:27:14

And this is one of the references which the Shafi uses that a person who's praying nephila can lead the prayer for a person who is praying for, okay, it's not just the story. It has many interesting references. None of them is in fact.

00:27:15--> 00:27:37

So he started doing so Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam would finish the ratio he will pray with him and when he finishes, he will go to his neighborhood and join them. He would lead them in the Isha prayer. But more added Michelle has memorized a lot of Quran and he will just keep reciting forever. So one of those guys who is a handyman used to fetch water.

00:27:38--> 00:28:02

By the time essential time he is falling apart, he cannot stay awake. So in the pray gives us enough so one day because my definition will keep praying. Besides the hunger citation, they they complain to the prophet SAW Selim. So he ordered him to recite a letter citation shorter source for Asia February can pray among

00:28:03--> 00:28:17

recite alone your citation. But this man one day couldn't take it anymore. So he was not able to stand in the crowd. So he left he left the Salah. After he left, some people told me about him, he said he's a Muna.

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

That's why he left the prayer How dare you leave the congregation You are a monarch? And trust me, this is what what any of us do or say.

00:28:31--> 00:29:14

So this man heard that Mojave punishable very honorable companion labeled him with newfound disbelief. So you want to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he complained to him, the kind hearted that they said this is what I do for a living I cannot afford to wait for and in addition to standing up for longer citation, so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called Masada punishable and he was very mad at him even though he loved him so much. He said to him in one had ECM was in your head book, I love you. Now that you had said to the Prophet I love you because all the companions loved him, but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not say that but to a couple companions. He said to me in

00:29:14--> 00:29:19

your head book, I love you. But during this time, he was very mad at him. And he said

00:29:21--> 00:29:30

some of you are repellent some of you are people off send him away from the team. The nurse whoever leaves a prayer

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

here is my portion sudo Haha, when Lee the yaksha

00:29:36--> 00:29:49

and so on. So Rasulullah solem would not tolerate mistreating anyone more artemesia was amount of knowledge that's why the prophets Allah Salaam chose him to send them to Yemen a whole country

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

to be their judge to be the enam to be their ruler, the leader because he's got it all Mashallah. But he still needs to learn how to be him.

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Save with others, especially people whom you may think that they're sinners even if they're sinners.

00:30:09--> 00:30:13

And the main kimono frame. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:30:14--> 00:30:29

brought this bad woman who just urinated in the machine near and he patted on his shoulder and he thought him that, you know, he can do that in the machine because he will pray. He said, I swear to the one who sent you the truth. I didn't know that. I thought I can just do it anyway.

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

Sometimes when we'll go for Hajj, and this is very common.

00:30:37--> 00:30:38

In the hotels,

00:30:39--> 00:30:46

where they have sometimes escalators thrown the stones, they have escalators. You see some elders

00:30:48--> 00:30:58

they have never seen an escalator in their life. They think it's such a thought moving she thought his machine is moving the stairs. stairs are moving.

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

No way that I'm getting on the tripod.

00:31:03--> 00:31:07

And people please will support you will help you then you find

00:31:09--> 00:31:15

a person who has zero Conduct Zero tickets I have it all lady.

00:31:16--> 00:31:26

Oh, you come in for Hajj and you think yourself, Masha, Allah, you know it all. And this is how you behave with the elders, because she had never seen an escalator before.

00:31:27--> 00:31:41

She was never introduced to an elevator. And we see that instead of joining hands and trying to assist her even carry her. Give her some security because it's not only an escalator, if you're throwing the stones, you need to take 10 escalators.

00:31:43--> 00:31:54

So Pamela, this is just an example of many, many examples. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us that you should never ever be judgmental of others.

00:31:56--> 00:32:25

Especially when you think yourself too good. And this is another crisis, thinking of yourself that you are very righteous, sha Allah, you've done a lot for the Ummah, you have done a lot for the community, you've done a lot for yourself and your family Mashallah. It couldn't be better. That is the worst case scenario. When you keep admiring yourself, even if you don't talk about it, when you have that feeling in your heart, you know, and so not in

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

a lot of matrices what falletto is at CU M for sedco.

00:32:34--> 00:33:12

Movie Manny taco, don't you admire yourselves? He knows best who is right? Yes and who is not? You know, you don't need to introduce yourself to Allah He already knows whether you're righteous or not. So keep it between you and Allah, but to admire yourself, this is very problematic. And sometimes it happens at one stage, when shaitan fails to seduce you into sexuality, into haram earning into any whatever so he puts the seed of arrogance

00:33:13--> 00:33:28

in your heart you to God Mashallah. You don't even commit sins, Masha Allah, most of the Kelvin said once in Medina, this is one of the great scholars says about another scholar by the name Mohammed in Makati. Bismillah.

00:33:42--> 00:33:42

It says

00:33:44--> 00:33:50

Once there was a quake, an earthquake in Medina, and a hurricane with red wind.

00:33:53--> 00:34:08

So we're very frightened. And we went to Mohammed Makati the greatest scholar that even enamel chef he was I'm sorry, Imam Al Bukhari was he stood in Medina humble, they have narrated a hadith from him, they have learned from him.

00:34:09--> 00:34:17

So he went to him and they said, Oh, the only person who can make down a low and accept is Ghana. Please pray for us pray for Medina and so on.

00:34:18--> 00:34:19

What did you say?

00:34:21--> 00:34:24

I'm afraid actually this earthquake have happened because of me.

00:34:27--> 00:34:50

Because of my faults, because of my shortcomings to this had the attention of people from him been thinking of him that he is the best, he is the most righteous. So he turned everything upside down. He said, I'm actually afraid that this earthquake happened because of my bad omen because of my shortcomings. So Panama. So

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

after all, settle Mohammed Musab al Qasim, the narrator said I so in my dream that

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

A lot of mighty have protected and Medina and stop the earthquake and the when the violent one because of the Mohammed

00:35:11--> 00:35:55

who will be many Taka don't tell people how good you are. Allah knows and he is going to inform people about you. Sometimes a person is Masha Allah, Allah bless them with their rabada which is coffee a hidden Like what? He gets up at night to pray. shaitaan doesn't know how to get around them how to mess up his prayer how to mess up, so he will mess up his act through the hidden shark, which is odd. He likes what he did. And he tends to show off even without saying a word. So next morning is going to school, he's going to work. He has his eyes. Scott, he says, Are you okay? Did he get some rest?

00:35:57--> 00:35:58

I've been praying on light

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

you'll miss the whole thing up You ruined it.

00:36:04--> 00:36:25

You ruined this no see this no evil citizen the heart of each and every one of us. But when shaitan fails to bring one of the ordinary people into a major sin. He will bring the scholar or a righteous person into this act of shirk through this seed of urge you will work on investing in the seed.

00:36:26--> 00:36:33

I lost my rated there once a young man was praying in the machine.

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

And he was praying by himself when full Whoa, sure.

00:36:39--> 00:36:41

Two people walked into the machine.

00:36:43--> 00:36:48

So one not this young man was praying for sure.

00:36:49--> 00:37:10

So he spoke to the other guy said look look look. Have you ever seen anyone praying with pusher like that? Look at his core Sure. Mashallah. So they started talking about this person, this person who's supposed to be in for sure. Here in nothing, focusing on the prayer. So this guy in the prayer and guess what I'm fasting to

00:37:13--> 00:37:15

couldn't resist that urge.

00:37:18--> 00:37:41

Go there resist that urge. Abu Bakr sobiech the best of this oma after Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, whenever somebody would admire him, he used to say, I listen to this and learn it. Hello murjani higher amid Melville noon. Whoa. La Allah Moon

00:37:43--> 00:37:45

is the Beamer poodle,

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

Oh Allah make me better than what they think of me.

00:37:51--> 00:38:31

When people think of you, that's a good sign. But don't mess it up. ask Allah to make you as much as they think of you or even better, he said better than what they think of me. And forgive me what they have no idea about, because our sins I do in private, you, me and every one of us and don't blame me for what they say about me. I didn't ask them to admire me. I'm not mad at myself. I didn't ask anyone to admire me. So I'm not blameworthy in this regard. Just made me better than what they think of me and forgive me what they do not know about me. And so on. How do you feel Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said,

00:38:32--> 00:38:41

There used to be two people. Amongst the Israelites. One of them was super righteous, and one of them was a sinner.

00:38:42--> 00:39:13

But they were friends they were brothers. So every time the righteous man sees the sinner committing a sin, He would enjoy in him to do what is God forbid him again is the evil and the other person would say, leave me to my Lord, he shall forgive me, leave me with my Lord, he should forgive me. Until one day you saw him committing a terrible sin. So he uttered the full one word. They said what law he lay your fear Allahu Allah.

00:39:15--> 00:39:18

I swear Allah will never forgive you.

00:39:21--> 00:39:22

By the way,

00:39:23--> 00:39:59

it was in an odd statement that was saved hundreds of years ago. Or only in the Israelites. I hear this a lot from the young seekers of knowledge. When the ladies start practicing, and they go for federal in congregation, and they memorize some parts of the Quran and the words are so bad, they grow the beard. They're supposed to be better but for some reason, you know, for some reason, their family members, they noticed the changes to the worse is become very violent.

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

He has become very much strict, because he can be strict and halal and haram, but your family members, your colleagues, your neighbors will feel that you become softer to them, kinder to them, because now you're implementing what you have learned. But what is happening is the opposite.

00:40:21--> 00:40:46

What is happening that you've become judgmental of others faith and faith, you're a Mourtada and you're of the man harsh, and you're gone to hell. And you should never enter Paradise. You don't know what you're saying, will lie. You don't know what you're saying, You don't know what you're missing up with. Guess what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, when this man said, so

00:40:47--> 00:41:06

he said this word while law he, you should never enter paradise? Well, I shall go to stay to hell. So a lot of medicine, the angel of death, he collected the sorts of books. Then he revived Emboss. And he said to the one who's super righteous man's olevia to Allah, Allah.

00:41:08--> 00:41:33

Le means to swear, who has the guts to swear in my name, to send home to heaven and whom to hell? Who gave you an access will give you the right to swear in my name, that he is not going to heaven and earth that he's going to help? Guess what? I forgive him all his sins. And he said to the angels, take him to my paradise My Mercy, it's my heaven.

00:41:34--> 00:41:40

Take him to my paradise. And he said to the one who used to be super nice, super righteous.

00:41:41--> 00:42:11

And I did not accept the single good deed of yours take him to her fire. That's the sound howdy brothers and sisters. That keeps us always in the condition of uncertainty of what of our fate we have no one we hope and pray that if Allah forgive that sinner and the man who killed 100 souls and and and and of all of those people, then I hope that you will forgive me my sins too. But be careful lest you think too good of yourself to enter hellfire. No, no, no, no.

00:42:12--> 00:42:17

No If everybody else not me, I know I'm going to Subhanallah

00:42:19--> 00:42:25

Abu Bakr, radi Allahu Allah and once attended imaginisce in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said

00:42:29--> 00:42:30

on the Day of Judgment.

00:42:33--> 00:42:35

agenda has how many gates?

00:42:37--> 00:42:38

And not how many gates?

00:42:39--> 00:42:40

Huh?

00:42:41--> 00:42:50

How many gates? You don't want to know about it, right? Sevilla sabato, a web in local labor, the minimum just on Microsoft.

00:42:51--> 00:43:12

Then gates of Elgin, each gate will call upon the duelers of agenda who shall enter from this gate because their speciality so our aim for the fasting people is again for the church. There is a gateway to Shahada, there is a gate for this is a gate for that. And overcome so the karate Allah

00:43:13--> 00:43:20

says your Rasul Allah, is it possible that anyone will be called upon from the aid gates?

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

Her look at the high Z.

00:43:25--> 00:43:40

Look at the ambitions not just the entire agenda, but to enter where the oh eight gates will be competing over you can no No, no, come and enter for me No, enter through me. It said yes, yeah, well work. And I pray that you will be one of them.

00:43:42--> 00:44:04

That's an indication that he will be amongst them. So Panama, and he's already given the beshara. The first of the 10 have been found companions is abubaker. So the yet I will walk around the alarm says that by Allah. If already one of my feet is in Paradise, but the other one is still outside. I don't feel secure.

00:44:05--> 00:44:15

I don't feel safe, until I make it completely and entirely inside Elgin. Otherwise, I still fear that I may not make it.

00:44:16--> 00:44:30

This is the proper feeling. And this is the true belief of worrying about yourself. Stop being judgmental of others faith, especially I'm talking about the Muslim mean, and have hospitals one

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

personal one shaitan may keep you busy with judging others because she's doing this he's doing that and he is not doing the proper man has and he's doing whatever. And because he is smoking smoking is haram definitely because he's smoking he shall not enter Paradise you never know. I'm going to share something with you brothers and sisters. I used to go for proper data we gather in the machine.

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

The Alpha demo spread in the streets we go and visit the coffee shops in Egypt, walk in the streets invite people to come and pray give them the perfume teach them how to Maple Do we have a plan a strategy, okay not to embarrass them. So when somebody will be sitting in the widow area all the time keep making.

00:45:22--> 00:45:53

So that because those people that Muslims born Muslims, but they never done will do in their lives. So not to embarrass him because they are elders, not to tell them now you're too old and you don't know how to make will do. So in a state somebody is sitting, make them model and again, make your motto an American Meccano do and we will see people trying to imitate this person and we take turns, not to embarrass them not to hurt their feeling. We're here to bring them close to Allah soprano. What.

00:45:54--> 00:45:56

And then, one of those guys,

00:45:57--> 00:45:59

we went to visit him.

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

And he was in his last year of college, studying business administration. And Subhana lionni I feel sorry for him that he doesn't pray. He plays cards, he smokes, drugs, drinks, you know, everything is messed up. So hamdulillah visited him a few times while he's having all around. You know, once he decided to come to the machine, then he liked it. Sometimes he would keep the cigarette in the in the shoe. shoe box. So, you know, it's very young, specially when a person is a beginner, you know, to get carried away, how could you take this cigarette box inside the machine and you combine it and you throw it away? Because again, okay, I'm not coming anymore. He's still you need to attract him.

00:46:50--> 00:47:01

So you started coming. And gradually, he became regular. He loved the deed. He started learning how to read Core M. Because he was Blanco zero.

00:47:02--> 00:47:08

Okay. And so Pamela in a couple years, he memorized the entire core. And

00:47:09--> 00:47:16

then so Pamela, I missed them. I said, What happened to this person? They said that he wants to study

00:47:18--> 00:47:24

somewhere. And later on, I figured that he spent six years or so will shift ignorance I mean,

00:47:25--> 00:47:54

studying under him, may Allah have mercy on him. He became very well versed, in fact, to the point that they appointed him in a charge for, you know, managing the fatwah, electronic fatwah. And the time has come where I am the one who used to lead the prayer. He used to pray behind me, we brought him to the masjid, who made him quit this and this and that. Now, I proudly pick up the phone to consult him share. I have a question.

00:47:57--> 00:47:59

Yeah, well, ah here, believe it or not,

00:48:01--> 00:48:37

believe it or not. You must have heard about the other chef in Tunisia, who narrated this I heard it from him. Personally. He said, again, they used to go out and bring people. So he said, You know, this book lied to over 100 person, not a single person again to come to the machine except for one. It was very easy going come to the machine, oh, take him to the machine. He went to the machine. And the person who brought the museum man, like my age when I brought him a teenager. So when he brought him to the machine, and this is a grown up man, the one who is coming to the masjid for the first time.

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

And he was happy because no one else was able to bring anyone to the masjid but him. So once he brought him to the masjid Subhana Allah.

00:48:49--> 00:49:07

He didn't feel what is happening, but he just not that everybody was throwing your shoes at them and be the demo the shoes. And he was going crazy doesn't understand what is happening. He tries to protect the guests until the Imam showed up assets forbid.

00:49:09--> 00:49:19

Then he came. He says he came to me said, Son, take your guests outside. I said why chef? He I brought him to Michigan. He said you're just as done.

00:49:21--> 00:49:25

Don't you smell it? I have no idea what alcohol smells like.

00:49:26--> 00:49:34

So that's why these things here guest is drunk. He said No wonder he was easy with me to come. I said come He came.

00:49:35--> 00:49:37

So I said, Look,

00:49:38--> 00:49:42

please, he can come back tomorrow. And they said, I'm not going nowhere.

00:49:43--> 00:49:48

And he was so stubborn that I'm not going nowhere. I'm staying here.

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

They want to call your karma so that they can pray. But the man won't move. So he said I told him made him make Voodoo. Then when we came to

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

stand them in the line no one wanted to stand next to him because of the smell, he stinks. So he said, I stood between him and the line and the lift a huge gap.

00:50:12--> 00:50:37

We will slow down the line by ourselves. We prayed and Subhana Allah after the prayer we thought because the man doesn't know how to pray that he fell asleep after the prayer. He was still in Sergio. Uncle, let's go uncle let's go He won't move that should have died. And men who have never prayed in his life he buys while praying.

00:50:38--> 00:50:45

Allah chose for him the good ending. So you never know. You may think of somebody who is so evil

00:50:47--> 00:51:25

and I have done that a lot. My office in the media city, this is like Hollywood. Okay, my office next door is a channel where they have those dancers and they dance you know have nude have naked and all of that. So and we have a masala so I deliberately stand up on a call and then and in front of my office they passed by in the corridor and they keep laughing and making those you know dirty moves. So in the Salah, I curse them say Oh Allah destroy them or unlock kill them or Allah curse them, the Muslims

00:51:27--> 00:51:28

but bellydancers

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

No.

00:51:32--> 00:51:34

So one day my wife was visiting.

00:51:35--> 00:52:19

And she went to their show, and she found those girls were doing their makeup before the show and so on. So when she talked a long time, she can say What took you so long? She said I was talking to these Girls Next Door and I was giving them down I said, Never mind. You don't know those are very evil people. She said no. You know what the girl said to me she said well, I am working to feed myself if I find a man who would pay for my rent and utilities I know I'm doing haram but I don't have any other source. I wasn't able to control my emotions. And a feel very little I was like an N or even a smaller you think yourself you're a big share. And you become judgmental of others. And in

00:52:20--> 00:52:58

my life ever since my wife told me that I changed the handler shop law. So I know that they're very evil but in my studio, I keep praying for them. I pay for those dancers for those lady ballet dancers. For those boys are working there. And one of our I have a chance I invite one of them to the office and I speak to them. So so panela a few weeks ago I got a message from one of them says probably on my page and I still have it probably you do remember me but one day invited me to your office and that visit have changed my life Alhamdulillah for the past

00:52:59--> 00:53:00

four years

00:53:01--> 00:53:28

living in Saudi Arabia I performed patch four times and a key praying for you. This narrow meeting have changed my life I was in I was ensured that one day I will quit the job but will lie since I quit the job a lot open all the doors of goodness for me and things have become such stuff for law we stop being judgmental of others. Stop thinking evil of others you never know.

00:53:30--> 00:53:41

Especially when they are when they say a shadow ilaha illallah wa shadow ana Muhammadan rasul Allah, how often especially the youth and I'm one of those I might not

00:53:43--> 00:54:29

get carried away because this is somebody doing something wrong. So right away, we should revert. No. That can ruin you personally. If you are truly seeking knowledge, and funny people who have learned anything in the deen of Allah, you should feel pity for them. You should be merciful to them, you should men do out for them. If you're if you think that your route will be accepted. If you think your love Brandon and hell Yala, destroy them and you assume that your dog will be answered. So why don't you use it for a better cause or Allah guide them. So that is better for you and for them. And there is a difference in the sound Hadees in this regard, what is the difference?

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

The difference is once they used to be a companion, yes, a companion. You heard that right. Who was an alcoholic? alcoholic? How dare you say that about the Sahaba? Yeah, because before Islam they used to drink and they were alcoholic and women were prostitutes. All of that was common. They accepted is that and this companion couldn't quit drink. He was caught. He was punished. And he was caught again and he was punished and he was caught again and he was punished him

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

He was lashed and flooded. So when they return once from plugging him, one of the Sahaba said Lana kala, Allah curse you. Won't you ever stop how many times you'll be flogged and beaten? He should stop Lana Kala and he cursed him. Oh la la la la sala ver her that. So Pamela

00:55:23--> 00:55:37

is it How dare you say that letter conaghan Alicia pania Allah He didn't be assistant Satan against your brother. Rather you should pray for him. Look what our beloved minimus says. He says,

00:55:38--> 00:55:51

When you see a sinner in a state of mocking attempt, and instead of cursing him and praying against him, rather pray for him and pray for yourself. What do I have to say for yourself? Sally let her life

00:55:53--> 00:55:57

ask Allah to protect you. This is a very beautiful guy. What is your name?

00:55:58--> 00:56:23

Huh? Harris? Yeah, Harris. If you see anyone in your school whose name is Mohammed or Ahmed and he doesn't pray, besides making dua for him, asking Allah to make him pray, say Alhamdulillah that he have made me a good Muslim Alhamdulillah hilariously funny, thanks to allow for protecting me again is the evil which others are being afflicted with.

00:56:26--> 00:56:27

We used to have an Imam

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

who used to lead us in the prayer

00:56:32--> 00:56:37

for years, and every time he would resolve for an people have to cry.

00:56:39--> 00:56:43

To that extent, he was so righteous. One day he put praying completely.

00:56:45--> 00:57:12

And he opened a store in America where I went to visit him like he is in like, invite another Muslim to Islam. He got married to an American woman selling her arm and call us even Joomla. And the machine is a walking distance while law he wouldn't even come for Joomla. What does this mean? What does this signify, no one is safe. So long as you are in this life, there is always a struggle while at

00:57:14--> 00:57:29

home while Romanian home. Satan says I shall mislead them or I shall give them hope in life to live forever. I shall give them this and this and that. making certain that they will all go astray. Then he said in another

00:57:30--> 00:57:38

common Humala philosophy, except your chosen servants I can do anything with them. But Are you certain you're one of them.

00:57:39--> 00:57:40

postnl hakima

00:57:42--> 00:58:30

the good conclusion the good ending of life is something that no one knows. That's why the person have to remain in a state of hope and fear, hope and fear. The youth must be reminded of that more than anybody else. When the person Alhamdulillah is doing the five daily prayers. When the person is attending classes are learning more and then he sees others on the other hand wicked, then automatically without feeling without realizing he thinks himself Hi, and better than others. You never know. I can keep giving you examples of their past of their hobbies of their sadhana and also from the Quran and also from our experience until tomorrow morning. But for the sake of time, I want

00:58:30--> 00:58:37

to also share another thing with you. We said in the beginning, our role model was prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:58:40--> 00:58:52

So our role model sallallahu wasallam taught us in this particular matter, even though his personal satisfaction this person is a monastic, but he never showed

00:58:53--> 00:58:55

who was the head of the monitor clean?

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

up the live no baby.

00:59:00--> 00:59:03

Right? Was it a secret? That no baby?

00:59:05--> 00:59:08

No, it wasn't. Even the Quran says.

00:59:09--> 00:59:18

quoted what he said in Surah demonaco revealed to expose the hypocrisy of abolade no baby.

00:59:19--> 00:59:31

But when he died, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talk of his Abba, his outer garment, and he said shroud him in his back. Then he went to lead the funeral prayer.

00:59:32--> 00:59:43

couldn't take it. He got up and he stood on the face of the Prophet salla salaam between him and the Kremlin said, I will not let you lead the prayer. I will not let you know pray for this one Africa.

00:59:44--> 00:59:53

And the Prophet Salah Salem County. Yeah, move away. Move away. Move away Yama. Leave me alone. Leave me with my companions Yama.

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

Leave me alone. Then Allah Almighty revealed

01:00:00--> 01:00:27

style funeral home Ella style film in the selfie loams Arena. felony fear Allahu Allah who listen to this for people like Abdullah novem so don't appeal motherfucking What are you see forgiveness for them or you don't because Salatu jenessa is seeking forgiveness, whether you seek forgiveness for them or you don't even if you continue to seek forgiveness for them 70 times Allah will never forgive them.

01:00:28--> 01:00:39

Okay, in the story know, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam commented on that saying, well law, he, if I know that if I were to make a stir for more than 70 times a load accepted, I would have made it

01:00:41--> 01:00:58

it's all about the heart. It's all about being, you know? kind, gentle with a good heart. not pretending. But being natural. You love people. You love goodness for people. Well, law Hey, brothers and sisters.

01:00:59--> 01:01:01

I don't know whether you're gonna believe this or not.

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

One day, Allah made me pick up the phone. Somebody whom I don't know. Yes. Said.

01:01:10--> 01:01:11

I'm a cab driver.

01:01:12--> 01:01:15

Did any of you go to Egypt to study in Egypt?

01:01:17--> 01:01:19

No. Okay. So

01:01:20--> 01:01:31

I said, How can I help you? He said, I'm here at Cairo airport. And there is an American tourist. He's riding with me. I want to make a Muslim.

01:01:33--> 01:01:35

I said, Okay, good for you make it Muslim.

01:01:37--> 01:01:43

said I don't know English. I said, Okay, how am I supposed to help you? between me and him almost two hours driving.

01:01:45--> 01:01:54

You know, I'm in my office, I have a live show in a little bit. And then this guy wants to make somebody who might have no clue about both of them. He wants to make him Muslim.

01:01:55--> 01:02:08

said, Okay, how can I help you? I said, I want you to talk to him and said, Look, if you want to bring him, I'll get you a permit both of you. And you can come to my office, but I will bring him even if you are in the moon.

01:02:10--> 01:02:46

So I gave him the address. I got him the permit. And so Panama, he came with the American tools to my office, I don't know, neither one of them. So the guy walked in. And he said, so you are like a priest like a scholar of Islam. So just know a little bit. Is it okay, I have a few questions for you. When 234 he can ask in about 20 questions. And I wasn't suggesting anything he was just asking. And after he, he finished his questions. And I finished answering he said, Okay, I'm ready to become a Muslim, a Muslim?

01:02:47--> 01:02:52

I thought he's faking it, to be honest with you. No, that was easy. It wasn't even an hour.

01:02:54--> 01:03:16

I said, but fear is the know, what is Islam? And do you know what it takes? And he said, Look, those questions I have been asking for the past 20 years in America. And every time I go to church, and they ask those questions, they kicked me out and the priests put a restraining order against me Don't come to our church anymore. Your religion is only a religion that give me an

01:03:18--> 01:03:40

answer that makes sense. So I kept talking to him, and you know, the requirements and, you know, the belief of Muslims. He said, I'm ready. So I said, repeat after me, he gave, I gave him the Shahada. And I got up to hug him and I feel the vibration coming out of his heart. And he was a doctor, an American, white American, but

01:03:42--> 01:04:31

then I gave him my number in the States. I said, anytime you need anything, just phone me in, because I'm always traveling. So Panama, Hawaii later, this cab driver called calls me and he brings another American guy. But this time he was Iron Man, but he was, you know, I met him once or twice, but he showed interest but he didn't accept Islam though. Then A while later he calls me said Shaq. Shasha said yes, they have somebody else. I said, No, you remember the doctor said yes. He said I took him home. I give him one of my soap. And I taught him how to pray. And He fasted for the whole month of Ramadan. Allahu Akbar, Masha Allah is the chair. And voila, he will Allahu Allah He died in

01:04:31--> 01:04:42

his suit. While he was praying. He fasted the whole month of Ramadan. And then when he was praying, he died in his surgery. Six months after he accepted his that he never returned back to America.

01:04:44--> 01:04:57

You mean that? This cab driver got to enter heaven through bringing somebody from the middle of nowhere to Islam and to save him to enter heaven. That's called a loss pad.

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

That's called Allah.

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

Language neither you nor me nor anyone have any clue about it. So what you need to do is first no one

01:05:07--> 01:05:25

has no follow because no one to think of Allah they expect good from Allah to have hope in Allah but also to be cautious and to have good conduct because there is nothing that brings you closer to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in paradise better better than having good conduct. Let me wrap it up with one thing.

01:05:27--> 01:05:36

We said we learn from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam once our most beloved salat wa salam Gara gift beautiful ring

01:05:37--> 01:05:39

beautiful rain

01:05:40--> 01:05:46

and he will sit in with his companions. So he will talk to them and would look at the rain.

01:05:47--> 01:05:56

Mashallah nice. He would look at them and look at the rain. Then all of a sudden he took the ring off and he threw away

01:05:57--> 01:06:07

What happened? Is it haram He said, No. It kept me busy from you. It diverted my attention from you would wait a minute.

01:06:08--> 01:06:19

You know, you know how many hours or sit with my parents or with my mother? And she's talking to me? Oh, yeah. Okay. And oh, yeah, I hear you I follow you.

01:06:20--> 01:06:22

You only found one this.

01:06:26--> 01:06:57

Did you understand what I mean? By narrating the Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam threw away the ring, because it diverted his attention from his companions were sitting with him at a etiquette. When you sit down with people, especially with the elders, they'll be listening or dismissed not to impose your views and opinions are not to be busy from them, especially their parents doing this in America, Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy on him.

01:06:59--> 01:07:06

When his mother sent him to learn from Robbie, and she said, Listen, I want you to learn from his adapt first before he

01:07:08--> 01:07:19

learned from his etiquette and conduct before picking up from his knowledge. This is most important for me. And when Emmanuel Shafi Mohammed is a chef, a, his mother

01:07:21--> 01:07:23

sent him from Gaza to study in Medina.

01:07:24--> 01:08:06

And he was sitting in a man it was narrating the Harry thinner rated for Harry's, and every time he narrates a hurry through the chain of generators, he comes all the way through the Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and he says, from the man who is in this place, Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And he points to him. So he notes that the membership fee was rather busy playing with a solo against his hand. He was very offended and very angry with him. Then after he finished, he said, Come when I say Rasulullah sallallahu slms. Hey, how could you be playing? How do you How could you keep yourself busy playing with your hand? When I'm saying Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, he

01:08:06--> 01:08:19

said, Well, I was in pain. He said, I saw you Don't lie to me. He said, I wasn't playing. I don't have money to buy a pen and in. So I wet the soil with my saliva on my palm.

01:08:21--> 01:08:39

He didn't believe him yet. He said, if you're true, just narrate what Hardee's he meant. He narrated 40 Hadith in his setting. They said narrate one Hadith, if you're true, because look, if you're busy, you're not paying attention to anything unless it measures

01:08:40--> 01:08:46

the benefit of it. No one has to ask and here's why only one heart one mind to think about one thing at a time. So

01:08:48--> 01:09:08

Sydenham Shafi, Mohammad Shafi Rahim Allah narrated all the 40 Hadith with a chain of generators, the same older pointing to that also Salalah, sama, calm and so on. So I said, Man, you're blessed. And because you're blessed, I want to advise you knowledge is nor do not turn off this node with sense.

01:09:09--> 01:09:50

Do not put out this new approach Allah put you in a heart through committing sins brothers and sisters. What are you talking doesn't finish? And a hottie is Mashallah we have 1000s of Hadith and 1000s of what matters most over the past one, one hour and five minutes is that if we learn one thing, not two, not three, not five, just one thing, the etiquette of dealing with elders, the the importance of instead of praying against others, praying for them, the significance of not being judgmental of others fate rather worrying about yourself and it does not mean at all that you neglect them you ignore them and say, God will take care of them I have nothing to do with them is

01:09:50--> 01:09:59

none of my business know to be proactive. But leave the fate up to Allah because you don't even know your own fate. May Allah subhanaw taala guide

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

Also dismissed a whole holy head stuff for you welcome Allah Molina de novo nella Catherine se Tina what often Amal Allah

01:10:44--> 01:10:46

Thank you Dr. Salah for it himself who talk

01:10:47--> 01:11:08

even though I believe that most of us here the youth are talking about amongst the minority, but inshallah Don't worry even though most of us are not youth by appearance, but inshallah we are youth by heart. And I think it is good news that inshallah when we will appear in our youth, now the Prophet, one stroke with an old woman

01:11:09--> 01:11:17

telling her that in gender all of us will be in our youth. Right? So we pray to Allah. May He read his agenda? I mean,

01:11:20--> 01:11:31

I believe Dr. Salah receives hundreds of calls on television, just to ask questions. So therefore, I would suggest that you take this opportunity to engage with him.

01:11:32--> 01:11:44

Otherwise, we'll have to wait for him to appear in TV and constantly making courses to connect with him. So without further ado, I invite Seamus and he to how to join him for the q&a session.

01:11:51--> 01:11:53

Hopefully he is listening.

01:11:56--> 01:12:06

Okay, I will start with the sister Smith. I believe the microphone is with sister Sarah. Can you suppose Ron Francis has any question for Dr. Salah?

01:12:13--> 01:12:29

Salam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa alaikum salam wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. Shay correct me if I'm wrong, that it's worth it for us to practice amama roof nahi Mancha. So my question is how to differentiate between not being judgmental and practicing the Dharma?

01:12:31--> 01:12:32

What does that mean?

01:12:34--> 01:12:50

I guess I explain. But I would like to explain Furthermore, that the quality which made this film and its members superior to other nations is enjoying in what is good and forbidden. What is bad.

01:12:51--> 01:13:40

In all the examples I mentioned, I've mentioned that there was the quality of enjoying what is good and forbidding what is bad, but meanwhile, you pray for the best. As far as the fate and whether this person would take heed or not, would benefit of your advice or not, will end up to be a righteous person or not. that's entirely up to Allah subhanaw taala I'll give you a couple of my personal experiences with the with the girl the dancer or with the with the American tourists whom I never thought that he will become Muslim and Allah give him an end which all Muslims learn for to die while praying. You know, so we don't know. We don't know who will end up having a good

01:13:40--> 01:14:21

conclusion, rational hakima or otherwise, so pay for that. And as long as we're still breathing, then there is still a chance, a chance to be either good, if you're bad, or to be bad, even though you believe in God all the time. Why? Because there is a hadith in this regard. Even there is an arm's length between him and entering paradise and he changes. So the person must worry about his fate when it comes to judgment. But when it comes to others, your part is as a lot Almighty say to his messenger salani Salah luisana comoda, whom wala

01:14:23--> 01:14:27

La Jolla de Lucia

01:14:29--> 01:14:37

01:14:38--> 01:14:47

laser la coda means the guidance is not due upon you you're not required for guiding them. You're only required

01:14:48--> 01:14:59

to enjoin them to do what is good and for them, forbid them against the evil, but who will end up being good and who will end up being bad is none of our business.

01:15:01--> 01:15:02

next piece,

01:15:03--> 01:15:05

one petabyte is gela.

01:15:06--> 01:15:06

Microphone.

01:15:10--> 01:15:12

Wiley from Sam or amatola cattle.

01:15:30--> 01:16:03

By the way, in joining what is good and forbidding what is bad are inseparable and are indeed advisable. And whatever applies here applies there. Because for instance, if you enjoy in somebody to pray, meanwhile, it is inclusively included that you are forbidden him against abandoning the prayers. And when he asked somebody to quit smoking, that's forbidden, what is that? So why if he does, that is enjoining. What is good?

01:16:04--> 01:16:11

So the etiquette of doing either one of them is all explained in a number 90 of SWOT analysis.

01:16:13--> 01:16:19

Although a less heavy layer of bkv logic, Matthew 17 has an

01:16:21--> 01:16:22

ability he said,

01:16:24--> 01:16:53

Look, this is what I order and this area I teach a course at the university is called methodology of Dawa, you find all the different methods of presenting your data. In this area, it is the cornerstone and given our older lsvt Big Bill hc Matty, well, Mo wherever deal has an IT, whether they don't believe it here, here we got the word Seville

01:16:55--> 01:16:59

called onto the way if you load with wisdom,

01:17:06--> 01:17:15

the air is 125 I was trying to verify 125 or so on chapter number 16 called on to load bill Hekmati with wisdom.

01:17:17--> 01:17:25

Listen to an AMA chef, he talks about the wisdom here. He says whenever you give an advice he says in Arabic, and I'll see how to Alan Miller fob

01:17:28--> 01:17:30

and we'll see how to add a melody for the

01:17:31--> 01:17:32

now

01:17:33--> 01:17:35

I'm giving a talk

01:17:36--> 01:17:38

and while giving the talk

01:17:39--> 01:17:48

I need to drink standing on the podium standing or sitting. So I grabbed that lesson and start drinking. Again share how

01:17:50--> 01:17:53

it happened to me I was given a talk in Mecca

01:17:54--> 01:17:55

and hiltunen

01:17:58--> 01:17:58

what is hum?

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

You shouldn't be drinking

01:18:02--> 01:18:04

while standing.

01:18:05--> 01:18:38

Okay, thank you so much Zack Allaha. Okay, if if his objection is foolish, because he doesn't know I shouldn't be foolish to because at least I should know better. I said In fact, you're right. It is disliked my parent dislike to drink while standing. But it is permissible. Because here in Makkah 1400 years ago, 14 125 years ago Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam after finishing his tawaf ABA live now best gave him a glass of water and he drank while standing.

01:18:40--> 01:18:54

It's a sound Hadith. Why? Because they'll fall hard on a metric to tell them that it is not forbidden rather it is recommended to sit down. Okay, I could have made a fool out of him in front of everyone

01:18:55--> 01:19:16

could have embarrassed him and burn him you ignorant and you don't know anything and that's why you object into a scholar yo. And you don't know but this way I taught him number one and he you know maybe he's maybe he's he got carried away

01:19:17--> 01:19:42

he was emotional to see the similar being violated. You know, I do the live broadcast on my page once a week now and we're adding another q&a session Charla there is a program I do too and so called best of the best. I hope inshallah you get a chance to follow it like half hour every week. Normally it's either Friday or Saturday. So because of using the front camera,

01:19:44--> 01:19:59

it flips the objects. It switches it to the left. So I'm sitting at home and there is a beautiful caligraphy behind me. There is La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah and I normally have to keep drinking as

01:20:00--> 01:20:13

Not because I have a dry mouth. So I have the lamb drinking with my right hand and during these times, oh my god share harem How?

01:20:14--> 01:20:25

What is going on? And another one is sending to the TV so that the cushion will be live on air. I was very disappointed that you you're drinking with your left hand.

01:20:27--> 01:20:35

Would you please look at the sign above me? Ah, it's backwards. Yes, that means the right is lift and the lift is right.

01:20:37--> 01:21:09

So simply if you just bother to ask why you've been teaching us that you should eat with the right hand wrinkled, right. And I was wondering if I saw that right. You know, this is Heckman. So if the people lack Heckman the advice you should inland the headmaster replying to the foolish way of advising you. So when you point to the signer humbler there was a sign and it looked backward like that this is hikma choosing the right time to say, given an advice to

01:21:11--> 01:21:13

somebody in public

01:21:14--> 01:21:40

is not an advice anymore. It is an exposure. It is to it's a scandal to scandalize him, so blasphemy to expose him or her the same words, the same words, if you speak to the person, in private, this person, any person by the way, let it be a scholar or an ordinary person. People do not like to be corrected in public.

01:21:42--> 01:21:46

Once attended a lecture to a big

01:21:47--> 01:22:18

to a scholar or the person who's wearing a big turban because Allah knows whether he makes color or not 1000s of people in Cairo and he was talking about how we should celebrate the birth of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and there is a proof from the Quran and there is a proof from the Sunnah, and I'm going to burn those Wabi Sabi and I'm going to give them the proof. Okay. After he finished, he narrated Hadith, long Hadith will lie. He said in the Hadith, literally.

01:22:19--> 01:22:50

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam look at the reference Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Yemenis nine, one day is such a viscid day. He said, he narrated that on the member on front of 1000s of people. Yeah, what is then it's a day on which I was born. So the owner chose Commissioner the profit, and it's the day on which I died. I died in the past tense, the own fee fi would it Wi Fi boys Wi Fi. So I give you the literal translation, the hobos in Arabic.

01:22:51--> 01:23:03

So after he finished, I drew near to Him. And I sent him for his marvelous speech. And I just whispered to him in the air.

01:23:04--> 01:23:45

I said, Mashallah, your speech was very good. I want to ask about one Hadith, because I'm not from here. My Arabic is not that good. The Hadith that you said that he said, it says, How does one hear his his voice? People gathered? And they were ready, actually to be Yeah, it's a sound. How do you Don't you know that? I know. I know. And I'm just asking. So when he made it public, you know, I initially talked to him in private. When he made it public. I said, pardon my Arabic. I'm coming from America. I'm injection originated, but that was coming from coming from America. So pardon me, my Arabic is a little bit. But you said that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that

01:23:48--> 01:23:51

and I died on Monday. Does it make any sense?

01:23:52--> 01:23:55

Number one did alerted him that when he will die?

01:23:56--> 01:23:56

No.

01:23:58--> 01:24:17

And is it possible that he could have said, Are you dying on Monday? Is it possible? Anyone would say that? So he said, just wait for a little bit. I waited. Why? Because initially when I spoke to him, I whispered in his ear in private, but he wanted to make it public. Now when he was governor. He said Just give me a few minutes

01:24:20--> 01:24:29

until people started leaving. And when people left. He said, Listen, I'm sorry. I made it up. Well, I

01:24:30--> 01:24:38

am wrong. I made this is not this path is not of the hardest asset. I know. It is not the hardest. So what are you gonna do about it?

01:24:39--> 01:24:43

Now what are you going to do about it? Those people are already to beat me.

01:24:45--> 01:24:59

What are you going to do about it? Several 1000 people, several stories and people are in the streets listening to and now Rasulullah sallallahu cinema says man kether the LA Mota amid unforgettable what other woman in LA

01:25:00--> 01:25:06

Let's whatever lies or fabricates a statement then ascribes it to me, let him exhibit his seat and hellfire.

01:25:08--> 01:25:29

He said, I shall announced next Juma that this is not the hardest. By the way, the first part is a sound Hadeeth Yarmuth nine is a de mucho was born and in which I was appointed with a message. That's why he said that when he was asked why do you fast so much on Monday, okay. But sometimes the person is a big scholar,

01:25:31--> 01:26:20

Big B are determined, and all of that, but it happens we all make mistakes, I could have easily exposed him in front of 1000s of people and made a fool out of him. But what will happen, he will be stubborn more, and he may insist in public and say this guy is vasavi or whatever, and he will fight and people will still believe that this is a hadith and it is not a hadith. So I believe mission is accomplished, okay, he apologized. And he recognized that not all the audience would let go some time somebody will come up and will say hey, and it happens with me. Some of my students will come and say chef you mentioned this hadith may verify its authenticity. Yes. And but chef Benny said in

01:26:20--> 01:26:27

one of the books that this hadith is Hassan is not so hey fine. Well my head is not an iPhone

01:26:28--> 01:26:40

you know, so, we all correct each other that is called mama whatever. And you know they can advise, but sometimes you have to end up arguing even argument with one which is best.

01:26:42--> 01:26:43

One more question.

01:26:45--> 01:26:54

Because you have also lectures in the morning and we will have to wait for finding that last question you can ask very simple question. Again. Simple

01:26:56--> 01:27:28

is how do you know because the left and right in right and left? Okay, because suppose we are watching left and you're winning the right so how is this left and right Is it is it from so now? Your personal choice? Okay? No, it's not something from sooner. Because it is wherever you feel we're in it right or left? I can wear a watch to my left. Okay, what about if somebody says Well, I heard Rasulullah saw Sam says they are mental. So I hope to get our word for doing so inshallah do that one. But to say it's a tsunami, no, don't dare to say that.

01:27:30--> 01:27:35

Okay, I assume that means is something that the prophet SAW Selim either did it or advise to do it.
