We asked him some Hannah Montana to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who preyed upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of

00:01:50--> 00:02:14

my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, first and foremost, I advise myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of tough war. And that is to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to be conscious of him Isaiah gel during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in this world as well as the hereafter. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the people of taqwa and may make us from the victorious and successful ones me.

00:02:17--> 00:02:31

inshallah, Allah for today's sermon, I'm going to be talking about a very interesting individual, I'm going to be talking about a cunning individual is interesting, he is intelligent, but very cunning, and very dangerous.

00:02:33--> 00:02:56

He has a few names, he has a few names, but his first name, according to certain scholars, according to certain of the Sahaba, one, image mine as well. His first name is as as in his first name is Isaiah z. And his last name is a virgin, his last name is a regime.

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

Now, let me take you all

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

sometime back in history, many, many moons ago, a long time ago, before the creation of mankind, Planet Earth, our planet was populated with species, the species of the jinn. And according to remarkable kathira Himalayan his book will be dire when you hire the book of the beginning in the end, there were other species as well that were connected to the species Jin, and they were known as hen and been. So there were other species that populated planet Earth. And these creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala they began to disobey Allah azza wa jal, they started to cause a lot of corruption, they spread mischeif they started to shed blood, they were causing a lot of evil and

00:03:41--> 00:04:27

corruption, so much to the extent that Allah subhanho wa Taala. He sends down an army of angels to contain this creation, this army of angels, they came down, they contain this creation and they drove the rebellious ones, the ones who are the mischief makers, they drove them away too far away remote locations. Now at that juncture, what happened was there was one individual, one individual who was contrary to the others, he was very righteous, and he was worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. ardently, with a lot of zeal. He was very zealous, and he was worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala day in and day out, the angels who came down they observed this individual, and they were so

00:04:27--> 00:05:00

impressed by the righteousness of this individual by the Nevada of this individual, that they took this individual up to the heavens and this individual his name was as as in later later to be known as chef on this individual now goes up to the heavens, and there are two he worships Allah subhanho wa Taala he worships Elian xojo so ardently that he right he starts to rise in his ranks. He starts to rise in his ranks and he became amidst the angels but he was never from

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

Angels can immunogen like Allah says in circle.

00:05:04--> 00:05:29

He was always from the jinn. But when he went up to the heavens and as he started to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala due to him ardently worship, worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala he started to rise in his ranks, and he became from amidst the angels until the fateful day when our maker subhanho wa Taala declared to create mankind Lanza gel mentions in Surah Al Baqarah. What is the color of bukan?

00:05:31--> 00:05:36

ekati in Ninja, Phil, are they funny?

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

And remember,

00:05:39--> 00:06:08

remember, when your Lord said to the angels in Egypt, you know, fill out the halifa I am going to place on Earth a creation that will succeed generation after generation, I am going to place on Earth a creation that will succeed generation after generation. The miracle is declared that the angels responded to us Hannah Medina, asking Alonzo Virgil orlu movie hammy Sufi, how I speak with

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

the angels The answer was kind of Montana, who a lot are you going to place a geography how are you going to place on earth man you see to see how st could deema creation that will cause corruption, a creation that will shed blood a creation that will indulge in a lot of evil to which Allah subhanho wa Taala responds to the angel stating in the album Allah tala moon, indeed I know that which you do not know. Now in terms of understanding the I have a question may arise as to how did the angels know that we would cause corruption that we would spread evil that we would shed blood? Well, it's not that the angels know things of the unseen. It's not that the angels know the future, but rather

00:06:53--> 00:07:34

it was because of their bad experience with the jinn. It was because of their bad experience with the jinn. They had a bad experience with the encounter earlier with the jinn. So they thought that this new creation too would tread along the same lines and that's why they put forth the question to allow some kind of more time. Now anyway, coming back to Isaiah z. When Allah and Sergio declared that he is to create a creation. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala created our father Adam Aileen salatu salam, and Eliza Joe commands the angels and as Isaiah was amidst the angels at that time to prostrate onto our father Adam alysha to ceram. As as he refuses, he compares himself to Adam and

00:07:34--> 00:08:16

Eve Serato Sam, he was the first individual to compare. He was the first individual he was the first of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To compare today, it happens, people compare the whites compare themselves over the blacks, you have racism, you have colors, you have all of these things, all evil practices, all bad fat practices, practices of bigotry and paganism, where we compare one another. But Shelton was the individual who started this practice where he compared himself with America to Sarah, what is the loss of Hannah Montana State to the noble cause on the statement of shaitan Allah enough? I don't mean in the sense I am better than him and a higher woman. Hala petani

00:08:16--> 00:09:04

minari mahalo Casa who mean to me when you created me out a fire or a lion, you created him out of clay, I am of a much more powerful substance, I have been created of much more powerful elements. Why should I prostrate unto this creation, he became proud, he was arrogant, he was arrogant and he refused to make sudo to prostrate and to add mileage to salon, thereby defying the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala and resulting in him being expelled from the high rank and position he was in many respected elders and brothers in Islam. That was the beginning of the battle between good and evil, good versus evil worship on his Whoa, he may he at that point he makes a call

00:09:05--> 00:09:14

to me, but I thought he makes a request but Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah grant me time, Grant me respect until the day of piano and a lot has granted him

00:09:15--> 00:09:59

and his mission. His sole mission day in and day out is to try and mislead as many children of Adam Alisa to Sarah, is to try and mislead as many children of Adam to Islam. I'm sure most of you from the corporate sector, especially given that this mustard is located to a number of companies around you will know what a CV is. I mean, these days who doesn't know what a CV is, we all know what a CV is. If you were to have hypothetically a CV for this individual, a CV for this individual who Shivam talking about check on his first name would be as as in his last name would be our virgin, his country of origin would be or rather the country that he is going to reside in reside in would be

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

Johanna

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

would be johannah in terms of his special skills, or in terms of his ultimate objective, it is to mislead the entirety of mankind. He is going to try and mislead as many people, as many children of admiring Serato slam in terms of his special skills, if you will, disrupting family ties, breaking family ties, going into families and disrupting them, you know, breaking them into pieces, sowing seeds of disunity. This is what shaitan does. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all from his traps. Many respected elders and brothers in Islam.

00:10:37--> 00:11:19

To proceed, I would like to share a sermon within the sermon, a sermon within the sermon and that sermon is the sermon of this very individual, this very individual, you can call it the hakuba of Shelton if you will, and this sermon will take place that is in accordance with the I that I resigned for at the beginning, after all matters have been concluded by Allah subhanho wa Taala that will be on the day of them when Allah decrees that so and so is going to go to Jenna going to go to Paradise and so and so is going to go to Johanna. at that juncture. Shelton will address the people who have been sentenced to jahannam and he will say as Allah says in the Quran, Allah shaytaan

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

Willem

00:11:21--> 00:12:07

when the matter has been concluded by Allah Subhana Horta, Allah when Allah azza wa jal has decided everything on the day of the AMA shavon will say in the law, why the comb Warden? Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised you Indeed Allah azza wa jal had promised you the promise of truth in in a la vida Kumar, they'll have to confess left to come. And I promised you things as well. I promised you a number of things, but I have betrayed you, indeed, the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala is true. And I have promised you I promised you a number of things. Yes. I promised you this. I promised you that in this worldly life. But now I have betrayed you not enough misleading the

00:12:07--> 00:12:54

children of Adam alayhis salam, now he rubs it in their faces. He rocks it in their faces. Yes, I promised you but now I am betraying you. And then he will go on to say Walmart can Ania la commune sukwon illa and TAO to confess to jail, but only listen, I had no authority over you. I technically did not have any authority over you. I did not force you to do whatever you did. I merely invited you and you responded. At the end of the day. You did whatever you did. And now you have to face the consequences. I didn't force you to do this particular sin. I didn't force you to indulge in evil, but rather I invited you and you responded. Feller Telemundo and Prosecco. Do not blame me Don't

00:12:54--> 00:13:44

start to blame me now at this point. blame yourself for the loony volume and Prosecco because my dear brothers in Islam, the day of therma will be such a horrifying day that we will be looking all around to try and blame others and get away with it. It will be a day as Allah says in the normal course on young my affair, Mr. Amin see me he was me was or anybody he was Bernie a day when a man will run away from his own brother Yomi a federal metformina he will only he will be he will run away from his mother he will run away from his father he will run away from his parents wasafi but he will. He will run away from his wife from his spouse. We will run away from our spouses yo maya

00:13:44--> 00:14:27

federal motto. And then masahisa to Benny and his children we will run away from our children. Why we will be scared that our spouses will try to blame us and take our good deeds. We will be petrified that our children will try and take our good deeds by blaming us. We will all run away from one another. Crying out NFC NFC we will only be worried about ourselves such a horrifying day, a day when Allah subhanho wa Taala will be so angry that he would never ever have become angry like that, nor will he ever become angry like that in the future. Allah azza wa jal would be so enraged on that day, such a horrifying day. On that day show Tom will say addressing the people now who have

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

been sentenced to jahannam He will give them a Hookah Bar he will give them a sermon and he will say falletta loony and Prosecco Do not blame me but rather blame yourselves because you accepted my invite. I did not force you to do whatever you did. You committed sins you rebelled against Allah, you disobeyed the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is all you're doing. I never forced you to do anything. I merely invited you and you accepted my invitation. Now face the consequences for alimony and full circle. Do not blame

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

Blame yourselves, Marina de mas risiko mama and to me most recently, now at this point, I cannot be called to your aid in the sense I cannot come and help you. I cannot offer you any assistance, nor can you be call to my health. My aid. I cannot help you know, can you help me? Wow, look at this. Look at how he's disclaiming everything. Look at how he's rubbing it in your faces now Subhanallah and then he will go on to say in niek effort to be more Ashok Kumar Neiman Corbyn indeed I deny your association of me with a law. If you have associated me with a law, I deny that I deny any association with Allah subhanho wa Taala in whirly mean Allah whom either Bonelli him, and he will

00:15:48--> 00:16:07

cap off the sermon of his by saying, indeed for the wrongdoers in a volley mean for the wrongdoers for them is a painful punishment. Now, before I move further, very swiftly, if you were to quickly analyze this last part of the sermon, you would notice something very interesting

00:16:08--> 00:16:55

picture, he is giving the sermon, he is talking to the people of jahannam. And he's capping off the if the order the sermon by saying in Ballymena law whom idebenone indeed the wrongdoers for them, for them is a painful punishment. Look at what he's doing. He is excluding himself. He's excluding he's not including himself. He's excluding himself from the wrongdoers. And he's excluding himself from those who are going to face a painful punishment. Now that sounds interesting, because we all know that obviously shaitan is headed to john and he is going to suffer the most painful of all punishment. So why on earth is he excluding himself? Why is he saying in Nepal Amina lahoma. Indeed,

00:16:55--> 00:17:40

the wrongdoers for them is a painful punishment, instead of saying for us is a painful punishment. It's clearly understood from this. The shavon is delusional. Something's wrong with him in his thinking. He is intelligent. Yes. He knows what is right. Yes, he is rebelling against Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yes, he is sly, he is gunning he's all of this. But he's also delusional. And this incident that took place a long time back has actually disturbed him so much that he somehow feels the what he is doing is right May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Save us all. So my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, at times when you listen to this sermon, the irony of it is that most

00:17:40--> 00:18:23

of the people who will be listening to that sermon off the devil of Shere Khan will be individuals who never ever listened to a sermon in their lives, they will be individuals who never attended a Juma sermon. And on that day, they will be forced to listen to the Hatim shavon May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. And the final point is that we would also pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that Allah azza wa jal only allows us to listen to that sermon or share it on in this world and not in the hereafter in this world. Yes. When we read the is when a scholar talks about it, yes, we listen to it. But we should never ever become of those who would actually listen to the sermon of

00:18:23--> 00:18:31

Shere Khan on that day, because that would mean that you are doomed to the fire of Johanna May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Save us all. So having discussed the sermon,

00:18:32--> 00:18:54

the last few minutes that I have with you all, I will quickly like to touch on four traps of Shere Khan, you need to understand that Shere Khan is the most experienced, most oldest. He's the most experienced, oldest individual living until today, and he will remain until the day of the AMA until when he will also be destroyed, but he will remain up

00:18:56--> 00:19:36

until the day of the AMA, and then he too will be destroyed before the beginning of the day of theorem. Okay, he is old, he is experienced, he has witnessed generation after generation of mankind. Okay, you may think that you are more intelligent than Shere Khan, and that you may not fall prey to the traps of Shere Khan, but it is incumbent upon you to study about your adversary. It is incumbent and it is important upon you to study about the traps of Chopin because he has seen generation after generation from our father Adam Elisa was not until today and he will remain until the day of the AMA May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. So he studies each and every one of us.

00:19:36--> 00:19:58

You when you wake up in the morning, you're thinking about going to work, you're thinking about making a living, you're thinking about placing food on the table, you're thinking about supporting your family, this is what you think of and you're thinking about obviously pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala worshipping Allah azza wa jal. These are the general thoughts that will run in your head, but you know what runs through the head of Sherpa every single day.

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

He thinks how

00:20:00--> 00:20:37

Am I to mislead this child of Adam? How am I to mislead this Daughter of Adam, this is what he thinks. He keeps coming up with traps, he tailor makes traps for each and every one of us know that according to the words of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam shaitaan if you measure them, he runs in our blood. He runs in our blood, so it's so easy for him to study us. He knows our weak points, and he tailor makes traps accordingly. So it is important that we study about the traps of chevonne so that we stay away from those traps and not fall prey to the traps of the devil. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect of all I mean,

00:20:38--> 00:21:24

so four traps that I'm going to talk about inshallah Donna. The first one is excessive talking. Excessive talking or unnecessary talking. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that, what will cause people to be sent to the fire of jahannam a lot. Mostly what will cause people to enter the fire of jahannam are the two openings, two openings, and then he's allowed a sentiment on to mention the two openings. One is the mouth and the other private paths. These are the two openings that would cause a person to go into the fire of jahannam. In general Malhotra service Hall. mela is a virtual service for the first one the mouth and the other the two private

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

paths.

00:21:26--> 00:21:47

Amaro the other one, once visited, Rebecca needs to do the long line. And I'll be back in this video the long one at that point he was pulling his tongue with his fingers. He was pulling his tongue with his fingers Amaro the long one who rushes and goes up to him and says, Yeah, back What are you doing? Yeah, back What are you doing? Stop what you're doing stop what you're doing.

00:21:48--> 00:22:32

I will back for the other one who he responds by saying this tongue has taken me to dangerous places. This tongue of mine has taken me to dangerous places. So he was addressing his tongue. Amaro the other one once his report to have said, I looked at all of my friends, I looked at all of my friends, and I did not find a better friend than safeguarding my own tongue, then safeguarding my own tongue. Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Sins of the tongue in the Quran, such as backbiting, such as gossiping, such as caring tales, such as slandering others, such as lying, there are a number of sins that are related to one's tongue. And they say that

00:22:34--> 00:23:08

the tongue is at times even mightier than the sword because you can literally break a person with your words, you can hurt a person, you can destroy a person with your words. Likewise, you can destroy yourself with your own words, you can destroy yourself with your tongue. If you backbite about others, it is akin to eating that individuals flesh, as Allah says, or Anna you Hippo hydrocone akula II Mater. Would anyone of you like to eat the flesh of his or her dead brother or sister for Carrie to move, you would attest it, you'd have heard it, you would dislike it.

00:23:09--> 00:23:50

But many of us these days, we wile away the valuable time that we have backbiting about others talking bad about others, gossiping about others, lying. When it comes to trade, when it comes to our businesses, we tend to lie, we tend to lie without even thinking twice without even batting an eyelid. These are all grave sins, in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you want to be able to secure a good life in the Hereafter, because obviously this life is temporary, you're going to remain for another 30 4050 6070 years at the most. And then you're going to move on to the life of the next which is going to be forever and ever. You're going to live there for an eternity. Here we

00:23:50--> 00:24:14

are slaving day in and day out to secure a good life to purchase a good house to have a good vehicle. Why is at the end of the day, we all know. It's an inevitable fact. And it's the truth. Is it staring at us in our faces that we have to leave all of what we are accumulating and go to the next world with nothing with nothing from these materialistic possessions apart from our good deeds.

00:24:15--> 00:24:26

We slave in and out yes or no, we go in the morning we come back in the evening. We're working so hard to earn as much as possible to buy ourselves good houses, good clothes, good everything.

00:24:28--> 00:24:43

But the irony is that we're going to leave it and we are not preparing ourselves for the life of the hereafter. What about a good house for you in the hereafter? What about gardens for you in the hereafter? What about a good vehicle for you in the hereafter?

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

What about happiness for you in the hereafter? Where are you going to live forever and ever and ever. You need to make lucrative investments. You need to invest wisely in such a way that you would reap the profits in the hereafter because once you move on

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

The life of the next you can never ever invest again. This is your opportunity to invest. This is your opportunity to plant the seeds and you will reap all of that in the hereafter May Allah subhanho wa Taala open the doors of understanding for all of us, I mean, moving on to trap number two very swiftly, unrestrained glances. This is also from the traps of Shere Khan. Number one, he will try to make you indulge in vain talk resulting in you wiling away your good deeds. When you talk bad about someone what happens, your good deeds are transferred to that individual. It's a transfer like an online transfer you don't even feel it. You're doing so many good deeds. You come

00:25:38--> 00:26:15

to the masjid on time you go on so many had so many Amara and you think Masha Allah, my account has a lot of good deeds, but you don't realize, by your mere conversations where you talk bad about others, you're dishing away all your heart and good deeds to all of them. On the day of the AMA, you will go stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala expecting to see mountains and mountains of good deeds, whilst only a pile of ash will remain May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all, you will wonder, has injustice being done to me, you will ask Where are my good deeds, I've done so many aamra I've done this, I've done that I woke up so many of the chapters of the Quran where all the

00:26:15--> 00:26:48

good deeds that I've done, and it will be said unto you, because obviously everything is clearly recorded, but Allah subhana wa Tada, there will not be the slightest ounce of injustice that will be served to any individual on that day because Allah is that either Allah is the just the most fair. And it will be said unto you that your good deeds will give an out because of this, because of that, and say hypothetically, if you don't have any good deeds in this world, and you're backbiting about someone you know what's happening now, if you don't have any good deeds to be transferred, their bad deeds are going to be transferred to us and Panama.

00:26:49--> 00:27:14

Are you ready to take on the burdens of others? Are you ready to take on the sins of others? Why do we need this today? This is an epidemic within our society where we can't stop ourselves from talking bad about others that are factions that are groups that are individuals who spend the valuable time that they have talking bad about others, backbiting, indulging in all that is evil.

00:27:16--> 00:27:16

And then

00:27:17--> 00:27:28

unrestrained glances. This is also connected. Because when people talk about unrestrained glances, the first thing that comes to mind is to lower your gaze from that, which is how long Yes, that is the primary thing. Allah says.

00:27:30--> 00:28:06

You're supposed to lower your gaze, you're not supposed to look at the hour of any individual and the hour, some people think that's just the private path. No, it's more broader. What an hour means is whatever is mandatory for an individual to cover. So for the men, basically, it's from their navel until their knees. So you're not supposed to look at the hour of any man or woman. According to the majority of the scholars, the hour of a woman is the entire body. So you're not allowed to look with lustful glances. That's the primary meaning Yes. But apart from that, in terms of lowering your gaze, you're supposed to lower your gaze from looking at the faults of others. You're supposed

00:28:06--> 00:28:43

to lower your gaze from looking at the faults of others, you're supposed to lower your gaze from looking at the materialistic possessions of others, and yearning for those possessions. Sometimes we look at the materialistic possessions of others and say, Oh, he has such a nice house, how I wish he didn't have that house. And I had a better house than him. Oh, he has such a nice car. However, he said he didn't have that car. And I had a better car than him. Oh, he has this he has that. We look at others. And we start comparing like how Shere Khan did. Or we look at the faults of others. We keep trying. And looking at the faults of others and spreading tales about other this is closely

00:28:43--> 00:29:17

connected to unnecessary talking. When you look at someone, you don't give that individual the benefit of the doubt. You look at him you try and pry a fault. Oh, why is he doing this? Why is he doing that? Or I'm coming to the masjid but he's not coming to the message. Then you go meet your friend and you say, you know this guy, he never comes to the masjid. What's wrong with him? This and that you start poking. This is how chevonne works. Look, there are many, many traps. And obviously, within the few minutes that I have with you all half an hour, 45 minutes. I can't I can't discuss or touch on all the traps of Chevron. But I thought I would touch on these traps because at times we

00:29:17--> 00:29:26

don't think of these as traps. We don't think of these types of traps. We take them very, very lightly. And this is how Shere Khan gets to us members, Manny Medina, save us all.

00:29:27--> 00:30:00

Moving on prep number three. This is something I would say that applies to all of us, myself included. consuming too much food, consuming too much food. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reputed to have said, and the Hadith is authentic. The son of Adam, the son of Adam, Phil's no Western mo displeasing unto Allah subhanho wa Taala than his own stomach. The son of Adam feels no container mo displeasing to Allah and His own stuff.

00:30:00--> 00:30:26

A few morsels a few months, mouthful should be enough for him to preserve his strength. But on the other hand, if he must fill his stomach, then let him fill one third of it with solids, one third of it with liquids, and one third of it with air, you're supposed to divide your stomach into three parts, one third of it for solids, one third of it for liquids, and one third of it for air. But we on the other hand,

00:30:28--> 00:31:10

you look at the Muslim community these days, obesity, all kinds of diseases. You look at all these restaurants, I'm not saying don't go, but think twice. You look at all these restaurants, who, who are the patrons of all these restaurants? Muslims, we are the biggest customers, because we are always eating out when I'm making healthy choices. Yes, you can have your cheat meals, you can go out and eat once in a while. But even when you go out and eat make wise choices, these days any fast food joint that you go to, they have the upside serving or the large serving, you ask for example, a meal, they would say do you want the large meal and we think, Oh, I'm paying

00:31:11--> 00:31:46

650 for the normal meal. And if I pay 700 rupees, I get the large meal. So that's more value for money. Let me buy that. And then we pay 700 rupees or 800 rupees. And then we bind this large meal that contains obviously a lot more calories and the minute we buy it, we feel like oh, I bought the large meal, I need to finish the whole thing if I'm wasting food, and then we end up consuming so much more calories resulting in what if you're not an active individual, you're not going to burn the calories, all those calories is going to result in becoming fat. You know all kinds of things that are bad for your body at the end of the day.

00:31:48--> 00:32:23

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the Sahaba in one light Allah Allah Masha mine were fit, athletic and healthy individuals. So if you follow me The sooner Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam you need to be like him Salam O Allah, Allah said you need to make healthy choices like he did for a long while he when he was selling because this is one other way that shaitan will get to you. He knows that if he makes you eat biryani for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you're not going to be able to get up and pray in Salah, the minute you open up the Koran, you're going to doze off, you're going to fall asleep, you're going to be in and out of the hospital, you're going to keep falling sick. So like I

00:32:23--> 00:32:50

said, Allison is reporter I've set a strong believer is more beloved to Allah than a weak believer both believers are beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But a strong believer, a healthy believer of fit believer and athletic believer is more beloved to Allah. Why? Because that believer will do more good deeds, that believer will be more energetic in his Avada unlike the weak believers, so we have to all strive to become strong believers who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. The final trap

00:32:51--> 00:33:00

many respected elders and others in Islam with a conclude is that he will somehow make you keep Bad Company.

00:33:02--> 00:33:09

He will make you chevonne will make you keep bad company where you will stick or hang out with the wrong types of people.

00:33:10--> 00:33:48

You're supposed to stick with the right company, you should be extremely careful in choosing friends because your friends define who you are the people that you hang out with. If someone looks at your friends, they will be able to define what kind of a person you are. There's a beautiful example. If you go hang out with a person who sells perfumes what happened, you may at times not buy any perfume from your friend. But the mere fact that you're hanging out with him, you're going spending time with him and you come out of his toe you will come out sweet smelling why because you are hanging out with a perfume seller. On the other hand, if you were to go and hang out with this is just an

00:33:48--> 00:34:26

analogy, not a direct example. I'm not saying that you must only hang out with perfume sellers and not hang out with blacksmiths but there is a lesson behind this. If you were to go and hang out with a blacksmith a person who forges steel what happened you may not necessarily touch any of his tools you may not necessarily help him out, but when you come out of his toe, when you come out of his workshop, what will happen is that you will come out smelling of suit you will come out smelling of burnt things and at times even certain sparks might end up burning your clothes. This is akin to good company and bad company you stick with the right people, they are positive

00:34:28--> 00:35:00

mentality. They are positive attributes there are good manners will rub off on you. On the other hand, if you hang out with a bad company, if you stick with the bad people, you will end up becoming like them because they will keep trying to push you into the same pit that they are in. So be extremely careful in choosing your friends. And if you find yourself hanging out with the wrong type of people with negative people, people who are haters, people who talk bad people who you know waste time from morning to evening gossiping and doing no good at all. Cut your relationships with

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

them, sever your relations with them and move with them. Only for necessity if there is a necessity you move with them. If not, just keep your distance that is the best thing that you can do for yourself, to save yourself from the evil that they are in, because you're gonna make it sound Oh, he's your friend, you need to hang out with him you need to go you know, chill with him, you need to spend time with him because he knows the more you spend time with him, where he has succeeded in misleading that individual. He knows that the more you hang out with that individual, that individual will pull you into the trap that he is in. So my dear respected elders and brothers in

00:35:36--> 00:36:10

Islam, these are a few of the traps of the devil. There are many other traps. Remember, the traps of chevonne are far and wide. There are traps waiting for you at every corner. If you are an intelligent believer, if you are intelligence, labor law, you must study these traps and you must stay away from the traps of Shere Khan. If you wish to be successful in this world, as well as the hereafter and if you wish to be saved from becoming from the party of shaitaan May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all mela as the virtual protect us May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our sins, may he accept our good deeds. And just as how unitrust seeing this message may unite us in the gardens
