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

Look, first and foremost, let me just say thank you to all of you, thank you to the community for having me here again, Wallahi The pleasure is all mine. I take great pride and value for someone, or even a community to, you know, bring me to a place and show an interest of something that I have to say. I take great pride and honor in that I pray Allah accept me and all of you Allahumma Amin Nomi.

00:00:31 --> 00:01:22

So tonight in sha Allah Tala, let's get right into this, we're talking about a subject in which every single believer, if you haven't been thinking about this, you should be thinking about this every day of your life. And that is your relationship with Allah's book, you mentioned to you a lot of things tonight. And it is more or less things for you and I to think about and reflect upon, so that you can sort of assess your place and your position with Allah at this very moment. One of the things that they really tell us is, if you want to know where you stand with Allah subhanho wa Taala at this very moment, then look at your relationship with Quran. And what they mean by that is, how

00:01:22 --> 00:02:15

often do you think reflect and pick this book up? This quarter n is filled with a bottle cow. And it starts off with the recitation. A lot of people think well, maybe it starts off with me reading the translation, or reading the tipsy or of the Quran. Those are important, but there's something that is a precursor to all of that. And that is the recitation in the pit of the Quran. And the reason why I say that is very simple. Every letter we recite, we are blessed with and only those that to recite the poor N on a regular basis, feel and taste the flavor of Koran. Like it feels good. Even if you don't know how to recite the prophet Isaiah is Salatu was Salam told us that your reward is

00:02:15 --> 00:03:08

doubled, because you're struggling. And if for those of us who are fluent in the recitation, then you will attain the same level as what we say in Arabic, the Maharal poor and the noble emissaries, your status will be of that of the angels. And that is a huge incentive. And that's just in terms of blessing. How does it feel when you recite Quran? So before we talk about all of that, let's back up down. How many years did it take for the core end to be revealed? Just shout out to me the answer 23 years, not 23 months, not 23 days, 23 years? Why? Why not just give the poor end all at once. Like when we put our kids into tech field programs we want them to finish in one or two years this at

00:03:08 --> 00:04:06

least recite it and memorize it. The profit idea sloth was salam Allah step by step gradually gives him this Koran for 23 years. Why? Here's one answer the poor end provides in Sunil por la calle Polen. Phil peeler, we are going to reveal upon you a word that is heavy. What I love about this verse is Allah describing the Koran as a word meaning every single word of the entire poor n is heavy. And the weight of this core n is in a spiritual sense that you can dissect a meaning of every single letter, let alone word of the entire plan. Let let me let me give you an example. Remember the story of use of fighting against Saddam, remember when the father

00:04:07 --> 00:04:54

what after he lost Binyamin, the brothers came back to him. They said dad, you know, we had to leave Binyamin back, but you know, we're here we're going to try to go back and see if we can get him and get some food and all of those things. And that conversation about Binyamin sparked this emotion and sadness in him and he turned away what toys r and human will ponder yes SFR Isla Yousuf will be up but our email from Meenal Houston what's the rest of it? Da who were killed the so you turn away from the rest of the sons and he says yeah SFR Youssef oh my god, how I miss Youssef. What built that are you know whom in a husen his eyes started to develop this delays from the emotion and the

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

sadness and grief. The idea then says fat who were Kelvin

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


00:05:01 --> 00:05:22

not, wha hoo walk healthy. Now pay attention. If you take the letter fat from February and change it to a well, one letter, you know this is going to mean now, it's going to say that he's sad. He's grieving because he misses his son.

00:05:23 --> 00:05:27

And he's feeling overwhelmed and emotion,

00:05:28 --> 00:06:16

overwhelmed and emotional. And the problem with that is if you do that you put the well, you don't know exactly what caused the emotion. Because the I mentioned several things he turned away he put his head down started thinking abusive, but this whole incident got triggered because of Binyamin. So you can't pinpoint where this grief came from. But because there's the letter of fat, the fat immediately points he felt this pain and grief, because of the loss of use of either his Salah one letter chain brought something very specific to focus on. That's the entire plan. So you can understand why this plan is so heavy. Now with that being said, with that being said, the distance

00:06:16 --> 00:06:36

between us and * and when I say us I don't mean us here. I mean just generally Muslims in general, why does this happen? There will a man give us a long list of things to think about. I'm just going to throw a couple of them to you why this happens. This usually happens because of distraction.

00:06:38 --> 00:07:12

There's so much around this world that pulls us in a million different directions. And more or less most of it is just away from the Koran. That's why like if you're if you have a phone or you're just you know spending time with friends doing your own thing All of that's fine no problem with them. The problem is that when you get attached to that kind of life poor and now starts to feel heavy and it becomes a burden and start to become annoying. And the Koran talked about this what's the aim?

00:07:13 --> 00:07:39

Law you're still we asked herbal Nawaz herb will general right off herbal Jana. When will Islam the area before that? So we started that conversation so it'll hasher yeah he will let me know Tapachula will talk to left so Mapa Demetri hardywood Tapachula in Allah Azza Buren be medterra Maroun what's the next day? Well, why Allah Taku new Kelas Eden Ursula. Listen to her. Allah says don't be of the people who forget to Allah.

00:07:40 --> 00:07:54

That and serve them and Fusa whom Allah caused them to forget themselves. How they didn't just wake up and say, You know what, I'm not really sure if I'm Muslim. I don't know what my name is none of that.

00:07:55 --> 00:07:58

They woke up and their days look like this.

00:07:59 --> 00:08:28

Wake up, brush your teeth, eat a breakfast, go to school. Come home, chill, relax, go to sleep. Wake up the next day. Brush your teeth eat breakfast, go to work. Come home, chill, relax, go to sleep. Do it the next steak. Then Friday comes by TGIF frame. So you're chilling on Friday night go out for dinner Saturday, chill out with some friends do your thing. Sunday relax Monday, do it all over again. And then what happens? Then you die.

00:08:29 --> 00:08:30

That becomes your whole life.

00:08:31 --> 00:09:21

That's what Allah is highlighting that he caused you or caused that individual to forget themselves. They forgot purpose. They forgot why in the world am I here? Yeah, sure I'm chilling out and having a good time. But everybody knows that comes with an expiry date. This poor N came to wake up people who are spiritually dead. This poor and came to give perspective in life. To sort of put things into perspective like when we don't have answers the poor and will give us answers and direction give us some sense of hope. And I usually say the same thing not me they were really mad. They say the same thing about Sala Sala solves the problems and give solutions to the world's problems that the world

00:09:21 --> 00:09:28

itself can never find. The world's itself can't figure out. You know, there was a sister years ago that

00:09:29 --> 00:09:31

wanted to have children.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:35

She couldn't have children doctor said there's no way.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:48

So you she had a lot of complications. And you know, she just accepted her fate. I'm never going to have children. Now she came to me years ago, like 1012 years ago.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

And I remembered when she asked like, what should I do? How can I like work at this to feel content with Allah's decision? And I remember an answer that approach

00:10:00 --> 00:10:38

fester in Medina University used to give us all the time anytime we asked him a question about increasing our iman fixing problems in our life this professor always had one of two answers to give the either would say just pray or he would say go read pour and share. I can't control my eyes what go operate. Sheriff I haven't picked up the Koran through it. Go pray. Chef you know I'm just I have a problem with my flop. My man is just really bitter. I got no patience. I got angry. Go read the Koran. This is the only two as is everything. So I just remember them told the sister look, just pray, reach some poor and ask Allah.

00:10:40 --> 00:10:42

About three months later,

00:10:43 --> 00:10:44

she goes to the doctor

00:10:46 --> 00:10:56

fella Murtala share her melatonin, her FIFA. You know, something started to become heavy in her. She goes to the doctor.

00:10:57 --> 00:11:04

Doctor says you're pregnant. But it's dangerous. She didn't care. So hamdulillah

00:11:05 --> 00:11:10

fast forward today, that sister has five children.

00:11:11 --> 00:12:00

Five Soller por en gives us solutions to things that the world can't figure out. World just can't there's no answer. Why am I saying all of this to you? This is my way of introducing the subject that if you have this massive void or distance between you in the Koran like that can be repaired that can be worked on. So let's figure that out. We're going to share with you a few points and this will take us right to the end in sha Allah. Okay, so you understand why this portion is important. You understand the effects of this Koran. You understand that the prophet Isaiah salat wa salam went through a lot of pain and struggled for 23 years to give us this book Sahaba has died and shed their

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

blood is so you and I could have this forehead. So if there is a distance or avoid you at least know some of the reasons why the top of that list is just distractions. distractions, distractions, distractions, so let's fix some of that. You guys ready?

00:12:18 --> 00:12:26

Now this nice Jiang as a theme going on around mashallah, is everybody ready? hamdulillah Let's go. Let's go Bismillah nelga

00:12:28 --> 00:12:33

Number one, okay, number one, the Prophet SAW Allah Hardy who was some of them told us

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

I will call him

00:12:36 --> 00:12:42

Allah. The lady said he he shaved woman Kellen Allah, Cal, Bayto suddaby or 30 B,

00:12:43 --> 00:13:02

a heart that does not have anything from words of Allah in it is like a home that is absolutely useless. You don't want to live in it. You don't want to visit, you don't even want it even if it was given for free. You don't want that house.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:45

This is the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam describing to us something really important. So here's a couple of things you learn from this narration. The first thing is the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is saying, if it has nothing, which means if you have at least a Surah or something in your heart that gives you stability with the Quran, and this hadith doesn't apply to you anymore. You don't have to be a half of the Quran. You just have to be somebody that puts and fills your heart with something consistently each and every day. So here's the thing. How do you do that? They're irrelevant. They tell us how to do this, right? You start off with recitation don't don't go into

00:13:45 --> 00:14:06

those translation and the Tafseer yet, we'll save that for later. First thing that you have to do is you have to read the Koran every single day. If you don't, you are spiritually dead. You become like, you know, a cast from The Walking Dead. You're just sort of roaming around

00:14:07 --> 00:14:28

and just whatever life throws at you, that's what you deal with. There so perspective, there's no contentment, there's no peace, none of that. If somebody upsets you, guess what happens? You get really angry. If your patience is tested, guess what happens? You lose your patience.

00:14:29 --> 00:14:39

But when you recite a bit of this Quran, it's Baraka begins in such a way that if your patience is tested, you're like in Allah, Masha. Allah is with those who are patient. Let me just let me just chill.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:56

So the ruler, man tell us, it starts off with recitation. Now, this I'm assuming that most if not all of us. We have an app the most half an hour on our phones or some kind of digital device, right?

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

That's fine. I have them too.

00:15:01 --> 00:15:11

But I'll tell you something. Don't depend on a poor an app to do the job. If you don't have a personal most health with you get one

00:15:12 --> 00:15:43

why? There's a big difference and only the Muslims that do this know the difference, okay? When you're sitting there and you're going through and you're reciting on an app, that's fine. I'm not saying to you It's haram or wrong or nothing I'm saying to you is just don't depend on it to be your poor ethnic experience because you'll be like, a Hamdulillah, Ulithi and Solara are listed. I'm reading poor and I'll text you later. On hamdulillah Illa the Solara Allah Abdi you sama lako give Halak?

00:15:44 --> 00:16:06

hamdulillah hula the owns that rLf cod was That's insanely okay. Go on Amazon. So you got these like ads that pop the too many distractions. Poor ad is not meant to be experienced that way. You know the self and all the pious men and women you know what they do when it's time to recite, they literally isolate themselves.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:42

Nobody talked to me, nobody come near me. Even if it's for a few minutes, nobody talked to me. That's what the most half does. When you sit down and you start opening and you start feeling those pages. It's a completely different experience. You know, and if you follow the opinion of having Waldo and things like that, that's a totally different experience. So have a must have with you. Don't leave home without it. And you will see that this relationship starts to rekindle itself. So this is the first thing number two.

00:16:43 --> 00:16:44

Number two,

00:16:46 --> 00:16:50

a man came to the Prophet sallallahu eylea So listen to this hadith is really interesting.

00:16:51 --> 00:16:59

says this man comes out he says y'all rasool Allah in Nila are still player Oh, and of who though meno porque en e che.

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

Yo rasool Allah, I can't take anything from the Quran. So a man comes across as seven misses you have a Salah? Like, I can't connect with this book. This is a question. Many of us from time to time would ask, like, what is stopping me? I'm not distracted, something else or ends right there. I don't want to even touch it. I just want to like, go on Netflix or something. Like I just I don't have the thirst. The hunger isn't there. So this man asks, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. Teach me of a way that I can get this poor man. Listen to what the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam says, memorize this. Memorize this. It's really simple. Most of you already have profit, it starts

00:17:44 --> 00:17:45

with Sam tells us men.

00:17:47 --> 00:17:52

Moisten your tongue with Subhan Allah.

00:17:53 --> 00:18:00

Well, hamdulillah wala Ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar, better.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:36

Most of us know that. Just be fluent constant with this vicar. And Allah subhanaw taala will open your heart and your thirst and your hunger and your desire to start reading and start connecting with the Quran. By the way, when you develop a steady relationship in the recitation, then you move on to the rest started looking a little bit into the translation, then you start getting into the Tafseer I promise you this be if they'll I promise you this, that when you start reciting your appetite will never be satisfied.

00:18:37 --> 00:19:22

Because you're just gonna be like, Man, love this surah What is this sort of awkward about to start talking like that? Then you start opening the translation like, thou shall not to die? That is the * man, this doesn't make any sense. Let me go into a tough seal. You start opening up the kiss here. Okay, what's this A and that's how the journey begins. All of us started this way. Students, brothers, sisters, all of us started this way. And I'm, I'm born in Saudi. But that's it. I left Saudi when I was, I think like four or five years old. And I've been in Toronto since I'm 147 years old now. So I've been there for quite some time. The point is, is that my life and my culture,

00:19:22 --> 00:19:34

everything is here like in this part of the world. So I grow up and grew up with the same distractions that most if not all of you are exposed to

00:19:36 --> 00:19:59

Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala allow some to go to Medina to study to meet the show you have to sit with the Redeemer and others not? It's not because somehow we possessed some quality or gift is because we just went back to Hadith like this. We went back to the basics like this. We made a decision. So this is the next thing that I want to say here's number three.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:24

The next thing to build this relationship everybody knows this a girl in Hola Hola, yo, hey yo maybe a poem, Hatha Yoga, Euro, mamby, and fusina. Allah will never change the state of a people until they begin to instill change within themselves. You'd I could sit here until tomorrow lecture.

00:20:27 --> 00:21:15

It means nothing. Unless you decide, the person decides, Okay, I want to do this. I can't teach you that nobody can teach you that. Allah says, HETA, you will hate you until you they decide to do this themself. You know, these experts like Tony Robbins, and all of these experts that charge 1000s of dollars come to like a weekend, or come to spend an entire week where they encourage you to do the right thing to find optimism to boost your self esteem, and they start doing these exercises and so on to get you to like really feel I can do this. They'll pour and says just one day twice in the Oregon. Now you got to change. You can go to as many seminars as you want. You either get a ton of

00:21:15 --> 00:21:53

information, or you change. So you can download all the Mashaal Oh, you know, I feel real smart. I took this summer, great, God, lots of stuff. And you could still go back home and do the same thing. Why? Because you haven't made that decision from within that I need to do this now. I can teach you them. I pray that Allah subhana wa Tada does that for all of us who need it, those of us who need that change, those of us who struggle with this building and that connection with the Quran, I pray that Allah subhanaw taala make that easy for you and make tonight be a starting point for you. Now, by the way, as we conclude, this is all connected.

00:21:54 --> 00:22:08

The tragedy happening abroad. So it's all connected. And I'll show you how Insha Allah, so don't think that we're just going to ignore that we understand the world's problems that we understand, all of this is going to be connected, so bear with me.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:15

The next point it will play him or him or her loved one said a slave turns away from Allah.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:18

And they stopped tilbyr.

00:22:20 --> 00:22:27

Because of a bedre, because of a seed of ignorance from his past, he hasn't gotten over yet.

00:22:29 --> 00:23:19

A person a slave stops their relationship with Allah stops making Toba to Allah, because they're still a seed of ignorance, a seat from January, if I'm back in the days, that they're still stuck with that they haven't come over here. I think that's really, really powerful. You know, usually, when somebody starts off by improving themselves and changing their life, some people come from a background of drugs. Some people come from a background of other things, right, other facade and other problems and so on. But you change, you change, and you make this decision, that color pseudo, I'm going to do things different now. But then there's something left with that individual, there's

00:23:19 --> 00:23:51

still something in the heart that's left. So like, if they're watching a movie or something, and a scene comes up on the screen, something in them is still there that doesn't tell them to change the channel or press the fast forward button or find enough, something doesn't tell them to do that. And it's connected to a habit that they've had for ages. If they can just focus on that one habit, everything changed. So this is what they build play you, Mr. himolla is telling us. So

00:23:52 --> 00:23:53

I'm going to ask you this.

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

Those of us who struggle to building that relationship.

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

What is that one thing you can think of? that's holding you back?

00:24:05 --> 00:24:42

What is that one? Is it still happening to you now. And this is going to require for you to be brutally honest with yourself brutally honest, to be able to speak to yourself and say men, I can't tell this to nobody. I can't tell this to my family. I can't tell this to my children. I can't tell this to my spouse. I know I got this problem and I got to work on it. If you do that, if your time is is this everything else now will start to rectify itself. You know, a man came to a Hessonite bossy or Rahimullah

00:24:43 --> 00:24:50

and said, You believe that Allah will punish the sinner.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:58

So Hessonite Abbas Theodor himolla, responds and said, yeah, if they don't repent, then they just live their life Allah will bunch of this what Allah says

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

so that

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

Man says, Well, I sin every single day. I don't see Allah punishing me.

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

I don't see Allah doing anything.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:17

So hasenhuttl bacillary being the great scholar Rahim Allah that he was. He asks this man, he says, Look,

00:25:19 --> 00:25:23

do you remember the last time you woke up for a PM? Lael said no.

00:25:24 --> 00:25:32

Do you remember the last time you gave solder pot? No. Do you remember the last time you read some Koran and reflected upon what you know?

00:25:33 --> 00:25:41

Do you remember the last time you did any hired for anybody? Helping an elderly person doing some kind of service? No.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:45

Sis, Allah has already been punished.

00:25:47 --> 00:26:30

Think about it. Now. How does that apply to you? Again, this is just me, sort of putting food for thoughts in your mind, just for you to think about. Your heart wants to get up every night, your body just isn't doing it. Why? Go back to the statement of internal pain, find the one thing and if it's more than one client, if and if it's 1000. Just find that thing that's holding you back, attack that problem. And you'll start to notice, like the A and soda till hasha when Allah says you'll forget yourself, when we let it go, when we face your point. These are the people that are inherently corrupt, it's actually referring to their hearts, their hearts are corrupt. You know what

00:26:30 --> 00:27:04

that means? That means that if, if somebody is reminding you or giving you some advice, it kind of looks like this. You know, parents, like you know, sometimes when you pick up your kids from school, and you know, as you're driving home, kind of telling your child you like, man today, you know, I was thinking about this and that and I read a hadith. I read an A. And it was really interesting. Actually, I saw this YouTube video. I listened to this chef, you really got to me and your child. There it is on their phone. They're like, Yeah, my dad's lecturing me, I'll call you later.

00:27:06 --> 00:27:44

That's Willa eco Homeworld festival. That's when the heart fisken is like taking a fruit and you leave it out for a couple of weeks, what ends up happening to it starts to get all moldy. Because nothing is like there's no attention you just it's just left there. And all it continues to deteriorate slowly and gradually. Now, if somebody wants to do anything beneficial with this fruit, they can't they just have to throw it away. So Allah says the gradually if you forget yourself, and you don't focus on your life, you don't think about what your relationship is with Allah. You don't think about Allah and his Quran. You don't think about that one thing in your life, you haven't made

00:27:44 --> 00:27:52

the decision to change anything, then your heart slowly starts to become spiritually decayed and rotten.

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

And when a heart reaches that stage of the scholars they say

00:27:58 --> 00:28:11

that's when yet and Hadith instead of sounding beautiful, they become really annoying. And they become like lectures and people sometimes get the best sleep of their life during lectures right? As speakers we see them

00:28:13 --> 00:28:19

or trust me you and I see you I see that one Masha Allah Baraka love

00:28:21 --> 00:28:46

the back there, you know, I'm not saying be in the camp, but I we see them trust me, we do. But it's not for us to judge. I don't know what your life is. I don't know what your night has been. Some somebody could be sitting in the hotel, falling asleep. But they still showed up after experiencing the worst night of their entire life.

00:28:47 --> 00:29:05

Who are we to judge Alhamdulillah they showed up. They found a spot and they sat there Alhamdulillah that's all we want. Just just get here will will help with the rest. So there's no no reason to judge. But the point here is that all of this, that heart,

00:29:06 --> 00:29:16

pay attention to it. And see if there's any spiritual mold growing in the heart. May Allah purify all of us love him. I mean, let's finish up.

00:29:19 --> 00:29:20

Let's finish up

00:29:23 --> 00:29:25

two more points and I leave you with insha Allah.

00:29:27 --> 00:29:38

The other point is there was a scholar. Now they'll play em Rahim. Allah mentions this story that a scholar in the past, wanted to give some advice

00:29:39 --> 00:29:52

to a student. So he was sitting and he was thinking to himself, what kind of advice am I going to give to the students so he took the student to a grave to a cemetery, and he sat the student beside the grave.

00:29:54 --> 00:30:00

And he said to the student, when your turn comes to be there, what is going

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

To be the first thing you would ask Allah okay, you're about to enter this grave before your soul is take it out. Let's say you got an opportunity to ask Allah for one more thing What would you ask for? The student says to the this the shape or to the scholar, I would ask Allah for a little more time. So I can better myself so I could do the things that I need to do. The chef was wise He's a chef says to him,

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

you already have that wish. Still Life.

00:30:33 --> 00:30:38

And so what I say to you, with this one reflection and many others like him,

00:30:40 --> 00:30:44

don't ever make the mistake of doubting yourself.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:49

Look, you guys remember him What? What are the Lavon? Remember?

00:30:51 --> 00:31:05

I would have done for ThoughtBot the Allah one. Did he try to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before he became a Muslim? Yeah. Try to assassinate him. Salah Juarez him before he became Muslim, wearing a certain amount of berry today.

00:31:08 --> 00:31:42

Right next to the man he tried to assassinate. Can you imagine the day he became Muslim? The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam made dua that Allah guide him so Allah answered his door on can you imagine coming to the masjid and praying beside the man who tried to kill you? And on top of that, you have to like Teach him build a brotherhood relationship with him. And our Omada Dil Hapa became so close to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he said to him one day you are Omoto if there was a prophet after me, it would be you by the Allah vine.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:45

And Subhana Allah.

00:31:46 --> 00:32:10

Allah buried him beside the most blessed burial spot beside the Prophet SAW THE LOVE already was settled, which he asked permission for before he died from a shadow the love I know. He told his son go as I share permission that I can take her spot and I showed her the Allah one has said yes, you can have that spot because they know how much the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved you and gave him that spa.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:58

I tell you this, because you don't know your tomorrow. You're still alive. We're still here. The Bab and the doors of Toba are still open opportunity is still here. You can still do everything you need to do to gain gender be is Nila. And listen, you know I was having conversation with you brothers before I came here. Back in Toronto. We're talking about like going to Medina and going to Mecca and dying there and so on. And you know, we know the hadith of our Prophet it starts with Simon told us to ask if you ask Allah subhanaw taala for burial ask that you be buried in the bulky in the city of Medina because those who are buried there in the cemetery, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam will

00:32:58 --> 00:33:04

make sure Farah and intercede for them. So if you're going to ask ALLAH ask Allah for their

00:33:05 --> 00:33:17

most of them are male will not be buried there. So So what does that mean for all of us? What does that mean for most of us? It means that you can still gain Jannah and die here in Houston.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:25

You have to believe that you can still gain Jenner and die anywhere in this world myth Nila he tarlow.

00:33:26 --> 00:33:31

The last thing that I leave you with last thing that I leave you with is

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

one day in sha Allah automata.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:38

One day, our turn will come

00:33:39 --> 00:33:43

go back to the example of this sheath by the grave.

00:33:44 --> 00:33:58

If you haven't done this, if you haven't gone to a cemetery at all, you should especially the young people, all of these you should do this. Right? Those of you that I can see that are sitting like this.

00:33:59 --> 00:34:17

You need to go parents take them to a cemetery one day find some of those graves that have the dates where the person buried there was born in the year 2020 and die 2023 And show them

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

you don't have time.

00:34:21 --> 00:34:25

You don't have time to say insha Allah I will I'll get it done you don't have time.

00:34:26 --> 00:34:32

Allah said at the end of sudut look man woman Ted it enough soon be a linter moot

00:34:33 --> 00:34:57

in the Arabs here you know what automation means? Although not only means which land or place or city you will die in less as you don't know where you're going to be when you die. All done also means what spot or tile or step you're standing on. You know the the design on the carpet here is a really perfect example. You don't know which spot

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

has urine

00:35:00 --> 00:35:05

name where the angel of death will find it. That's also called adulthood. Who thinks of death like that?

00:35:06 --> 00:35:47

Like, I don't know, when I walk out which parking lot I'll be and maybe the Angel of Death finds me there. Which parking spa? Who thinks of death lakes. So what I leave you with is this understanding brothers and sisters that one of the signs of the final days is that people will die suddenly and unexpectedly. I, I don't know if we're there. Allah knows best. Right? I'm not going to say that we're living that. But have you started hearing? And have you been hearing over the years? Have you been hearing stories of like young people that just suddenly fall down and die? You guys hear that? Yeah, 30 years old, dead, went to bed never woke up. 23 years old, just outside for a run,

00:35:48 --> 00:35:53

collapsed. It's just happening more and more and more frequent.

00:35:55 --> 00:35:56

But Allah

00:35:57 --> 00:36:31

put those stories in front of you and me to see and read. Why? To remind you. You have no idea where you will be standing when death finds you. So I hope and I pray that as you leave here tonight, if you are struggling to keep that relationship with Allah's book, that you remind yourself man, I don't want to be on Netflix when the angel of death comes at me. Now because the Angel of Death is not going to be like well, your Netflix sing tonight I'll come back to you or when you're in Sajid on Jorah Okay, and I'll pick you up for that.

00:36:32 --> 00:36:33


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

So I pray that Allah subhanaw taala keep us close to the Quran.

00:36:38 --> 00:37:25

I pray that Allah subhana wa Taala shower our hearts, our minds, our lives that each and every day never as the day goes by, that at least we take the time to think about and reflect and read the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. For the one that reads and recites and reflects upon the book of Allah, they are guaranteed peace and contentment in this world and in the hereafter May Allah make all of us from amongst them Allahumma I mean, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala for anybody here who is struggling with this journey, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make tonight a night of Tober in a night of opportunity and facilitated open that path for you. Make it in a way that is pleasing to

00:37:25 --> 00:38:04

HIM before it is pleasing to us. For our youth, our sons and daughters. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala loved them and protect them and preserve the message of the Quran and Sunnah in their hearts and in their lives that human abita always and forever for our mothers and fathers May Allah subhanho wa Taala give you agenda to include a dose of Allah, may Allah azza wa jal grant you honor peace and stability for your sacrifice. May Allah azza wa jal for our mothers and fathers who have died and passed on May Allah subhanho wa Taala reunite you as the child and all of us with them in genital feta dose and Allah, that you see them that you touch them that you feel them that you are

00:38:04 --> 00:38:35

Through your journey with your relationship with Allah, Allah whom I mean, yeah, it'll be we ask you on this blessed day and this blessed time together, that you accept from us our doors and that you accept from us our efforts, Allah I mean, I leave you with this left last and final reflection

00:38:39 --> 00:38:41

what's happening overseas

00:38:42 --> 00:38:44

is really tragic.

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

But tonight, what I wanted to do is to remind ourselves, the pattern in our deen in our shed era, that despite whatever happens in the world, don't forget to you

00:39:01 --> 00:39:45

don't forget yourself because the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us a while to email us and we'll add Don Julio mil pm to Salah the first thing the slave is asked upon, on the Day of Judgment is solid meaning to you. I was going to ask you about yourself about what you did when you were alive. How you spent it every effort how what everything you said and did Allah will ask you first to take care of yourself. Take care of yourself and make sure that you don't this is not something I'm pulling out of left field. Well after the Battle of or hood, Bill Sahabas are sitting with their head down 70 Plus Sahab has just died. Who fall of the poor end carriers of dissident

00:39:45 --> 00:39:47

scholars, all of them just dead.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:59

The Sahabas who survived there they're just sitting there to like say tragic beyond tragic. The prophet Isaiah salat wa salam, their leader, they're thinking Oh, my God, I disappointed

00:40:00 --> 00:40:38

We disappointed him. He told us certain instructions we didn't follow. We really let him down. What does Allah say? So I've emailed the team mean Allah Healin tell him what Oh, Quinta footman, there's a little colorblind fog dude and howling for Enron was still the federal level and we're sure we don't even feel ember. Say either I serve to fatawa kill Isla paws. Allah then says to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, that it is from the Mercy of Allah, that you keep, keep and maintain this gentle softness in your personality. In other words, don't get angry.

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

Don't get angry at them.

00:40:43 --> 00:41:04

While couldn't afford Berners Lee if you had this heavy heart that was filled with anger and hatred, landfall, Doom and holiday never warm up to you, they'll never take you seriously. So liquid Allah tells them to do fine home just forgive them and pardon them was still federal level. ask Allah to forgive all of them will share with them Phil Emmer and by the way, also ask them

00:41:05 --> 00:41:09

what do you guys think we should do next? This is the same companions

00:41:10 --> 00:41:53

the messed up. Allah tells the Prophet it is Let's go ask them what we should do next go seek their direction and their counsel. For you there as MTA fatawa Killa low once you guys make a decision, just have trusting Allah, Allah your hiboy matola killing this is whom Allah loves. Allah loves those who are consistent in their reliance and Allah, I leave you with that. Because what you learned from that incident is, when it's all said and done, you've got to move on and you've got to remember you. You've got to continue to live and remember your own death and your own time. And I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed that for all of us in sha Allah, who Terra Allah, Allah

00:41:53 --> 00:42:01

who may mean, listen, brothers and sisters, for those of you that I hope, you know, I see all of you tomorrow. But if I don't see some of you,

00:42:03 --> 00:42:26

you will be banned from domestic for some time, till you can reflect on your decision. I'm joking. No, I can't do that. But look, if I don't see you tomorrow, and I don't see you again. I really mean this from my heart. These days, actually, for maybe the last five or seven years. I've been very selective where I go. But there is something about this your community you have.

00:42:27 --> 00:42:30

You have welcomed me and embraced me in a way that

00:42:32 --> 00:43:14

there is a strong love for me brother, Amy Skene child that came from Toronto. And I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala reunite us together in * at a dose under a beautiful shade, where we can one day sit down together and we can talk about Yeah, you know, but the whole set remember that lecture you gave? Yeah, I was there too. You never know if we could probably be sitting. I don't know, why would we topic at all this lecture, but maybe we might. And I just pray that Allah accepts and continues to bless our relationship. I am truly honored and delighted to be here to see you all. I have gotten to know some of your faces quite a bit. And I just hope that that continues for as

00:43:14 --> 00:43:30

long as possible in sha Allah until Allah wills. So for those that I don't see again fee Amanullah May Allah bless you and keep you safe and continue that you stay on the journey of building their relationship with your deen and building your relationship with Allah and inshallah until we meet again
