Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
al hamdu lillahi MEDEL, who want to start in you know who want to still futile when are also Billahi min shorty and fusina woman see tiara Marina Mija de la who phenomenal de la la will mean you'll believe in who Fela her de ella.
watershed one La ilaha illallah wa de la Sheree cara, what shadow say you don't wanna be, you know Mohammed Abu who was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala early he was stalking me he was so limited Sleeman kathira Amar died.
And so Alhamdulillah once again,
we have the opportunity to come together in this blessed place, the house of Allah azza wa jal, in this blessed gathering, a gathering of very, and we ask Allah azza wa jal that any words you hear today, let it be words to benefit you in this dunya and in the earth era, rather than they become words that will punish you in the studio or in the earth.
So May Allah subhanahu wa taala indeed allow whatever we hear today, to be of benefit to us and our families. Bismillah hytera Allah
my topic for you this evening
is not going to be about genes.
But something that is a vehicle or a path for somebody to be possessed with a gene. But we're not going to touch this gene topic, I will leave that inshallah with the shift side, what began it with you and insha Allah, He will conclude that with you our discussion for this evening in sha Allah
a state of a Muslim.
And this particular state, is actually as a disease
that some Arla might have described, it is a disease of the heart. And this state or this disease is called a lefleur
which roughly means heedlessness towards Allah azza wa jal commands
I love Fleur, every time we want to begin a topic, let us first begin by defining what l hoffler is. And hoffler is derived from the word of law Family Law.
Some of the scholars of the Arabic language have defined that the laferla means
when a person is shaded or when something is shaded. And if you try to bring light to this shaded area, light seems to have difficulty getting to this area. So for example, a tree and you try to put light what is beneath this tree, it can get there and what are you trying, still the light keeps shining, and their leaves or whatever blocking this light from getting in. So it is some type of shade.
Other scholars have defined, a lovely to mean a person who is heedless a person who has a heart a heart that is cold, a heart that is sick, sick from what cold from what
a heart that is sick, from accepting and practicing the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this religion of Islam.
In order for us to really understand this topic, we're going to be focusing on a few points. And the first one is
how to protect yourself from being in the state of affair.
How to protect yourself from being in this state that when you hear Paola, or you here, Pilar Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how to protect yourself in a state that these words don't come on deaf ears, or these words don't have an effect on you, how to protect yourself from that state. And then the second portion
is we will talk about
what are the characteristics of a person who has who is in the state of offer? How do you know that you're in this state? How does somebody know?
And so and then the third and final point that we will focus on and conclude within sha Allah is after we know a lefleur after we know its its effects, how do we cure this state? How To summarize
Come out of the state of Florida and be erased from it
so uh well in the first thing that we're going to talk about is
a total Hebe Minh and in a national economy, no hard feelings so not to be in the state of Lafayette how to do this.
First thing we're going to look at in sha Allah is the important a in Surah till MBR the first as are your number one were alarmed. xojo tells us
a warning not to be in the state of a muffler. Now this is a warning that Allah is giving to us. And he says, If will total belly NASA he said boom boom fee off let him mareel doing
it the total belly NASA he said boom. Closer and closer the day of judgment is coming to them with whom fee is reflected Tim mareel doing and they are in a state of heedlessness. So these people who are in the state yomo Pm is coming closer and closer to them. They are going to the massage. They are going to the schools. They are going to the lectures and they are hearing pod Allah Kala Kala Rasool Allah Rasool Carla salaf call alum and they're hearing hearing this yet it has no effect on them.
And then Allah continues to say in the second area, may t him in victory mill robbing him mock death in elastomer omya Yella boon La Jolla tunku boom.
Now Allah continues to say
that since they are in the state of this of a Lefler, a verse or an idea come to them and they are still in a state of play, they are still in a state of enjoyment, and their hearts are busy are preoccupied with the dunya.
So this here is important when Eliza Jen says La Jolla tan kulu boom, this is the first reason of what allows a person to fall in the state of Allah hoffler is that their hearts become preoccupied with everything else around them with the dunya with the desires etc, etc. And this is the first stage of a person falling falling into the state of Allah hoffler.
An example of this, and we've mentioned a few but one few specific examples.
How many times have you found yourselves or you found others?
Let's say for example, Ramadan,
the Imams are reciting poetry
and they are reciting and reciting and you are also busy with the poor and day and night day and night. But for some reason, you are finding that this poor Anne is not trembling your heart in such a way that you begin to cry, you will read a lust punishment, you will read a luz rewards you will read how Allah azza wa jal dealt with the woman or the nations before how Allah azza wa jal destroyed the nations in the past from because of their sin.
And you will read this and read this yet, after you are done. The Koran is closed
and you and we put the poor and back and we come back into a state of play.
This is a sign of the state of hoffler. Now it doesn't mean that as soon as this happens, we are all just in the state of offer and there is no help no love flow in itself has different levels. But this is another another topic and the same thing that when we come to massage it and the and the madrasa and so on. We learn, we open al Bukhari, we open autobarn and no we and we listen and we learn about the sooner we learn about the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
yet it has not affected the lives of the halfling the people in the state of Allah hoffler
However, there's one point here, this is not the actual problem. This is not the actual danger of being in hoffler is okay, you're reading poor and what you're not crying or it's not affecting you. This is a problem but this is not the actual danger here. Or you're hearing a headache, but it's not having an immediate effect on you. You love it. You want
To hear it but for some reason it has not affected you. These are all issues. But this is not the real danger here. You know what the real danger is?
The real danger is that there are some people whole will be in sin, who will fall into sin after sin after sin.
But they look around themselves, they look at their lives. And they see that Allah azza wa jal has given them cars, has given them wealth, has given them children, has given them good health, etc, etc, etc. And they say,
Allah loves me, because I have all of these things, I have a good life. Allah loves me, and so therefore I'm not doing anything wrong, what I'm doing is got to be right. But in actuality, if you analyze the life in the lives of these people, you will find that they are full of sin. And we'll come to examples of this shortly, in sha Allah.
So these, this is where the main problem is, is when somebody is blinded by what is around them.
And they cannot see the mistakes of themselves. For example,
a brother or a sister or a family,
they have an amazing business, a good business, making lots of money, got lots of children Alhamdulillah for kulu has he nirala, to Manila, Manila, all of these things are the blessings from Eliza gel. And this is a good thing. However, this same person,
in his dealings in his interaction with the community, or in his home, he has become or this person has become the ugliest person, meaning in his home, he is the worst to his family and to his wife or his to his children or to their husbands, whatever the cases.
Or, let's say, example, a woman, she has all of this near him around her yet she is not wearing hijab, or Amen. He has all of this narrative around him, yet he is mistreating his family or his wife.
And so this is where the problem is because why if you go to some of these people, and you mentioned to them say, Oh yeah, octi these things are Harlem or these things are wrong. You need to do this and they say to you actually,
look how Allah has blessed me. Look what I have. You mean to tell me that I'm doing something wrong? You mean to tell me that my life is not going the right way?
The state of hoffler
and Elena are awesome Rahmatullah here Ali him tell us a very important statement
that in Tila bien aime a shed do what up Soto mean an empty la it will be up one *er,
that when Allah azza wa jal tests a person
and test them by giving them more and more blessings or more and more Nirvana. This type of test is more difficult than a person who has all of this near them, and it is taken away from them.
And the reason for this is the person who as we just mentioned, who has had has all of this blessing around them, they have become blind to see the mistakes within themselves. They have been blind to see the mistakes that are around them, because they are distracted by the Xena to dunya the beauty of the dune get around them.
And so, this brings us now to a very important Hadeeth of our soul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in where he tells us.
If you notice,
Allah is given a person everything he wishes, everything he wants in this dunya
while also at the same time you are seeing that person committing sin. Now this is a hadith in a mammal in the Muslim Imam Muhammad. At the same time you are seeing that person who is getting all this blessing. The same time you are seeing them committing sin and falling into murase then know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is gradually going to bring that person to punish
Allah what he's doing subhanahu wa taala is letting the rope loose, said okay, you have all of this blessing, and Allah is allowing the rope to be loose with you. And this is all a test from Allah. This is all a test. And as was just mentioned, this is the most difficult type of test.
We know of one test that Allah mentions in Surah Al Baqarah. Well Annabella Juana combi Shay immunol hope you will join us in one minute and while you will earn footsie with thammarat Well, there should a Siberian that Allah azza wa jal will test you by taking away something of your food, or bringing fear to you or taking something of your wealth or taking someone who is close to you, and give glad tidings to those who are patient who are the ones who are patient, and levena call a woman so in a Latina Paulo in Madeleine, we're in LA Roger on these are the people who are patient, the ones who say in early LA, we're in LA, you're on your own, we are all from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And to him is our eventual return.
And so going back to this, the rope is loose. This is what some Allah actually called a trap
Subhana Allah, this is very dangerous. We sometimes a person may find himself in a trap with Allah, Allah will track this person as a form of test, and may turn out to be a form of punishment.
And as we see around us, there are many people who ask that there are certain people who are doing volume after volume, they are bringing hardship after hardship,
to people around them, certain leaders, certain people, causing hardship after hardship to people around them, to their families, to their children to their community, why is it that we are making dua to Allah and we are asking alone, to correct this person or to allow this person to stop or to guide this person but our doula is not being accepted or I would do it is not being answered. Here is a reason that this is all part of the plan of a laws religion.
And the law continues now
in another area in Surah, Al anon, where Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the people of Allah hoffler
and he states phenom and Summa Zuki, Ruby Fattah, Hannah Ali, Abu Baba Cooley Shay in either 30 whoa Bhima Ooh, to 100 no whom belta for either, whom Mobley soon
when the people forgot the orders, forgot our commands. Now Allah is speaking here, stating that there are some people when we send reminder after reminder to them,
and these things become heedless to them.
reminders from the core and we open the gates of things that are pleasant to them. And we gave them everything they wanted. So alive, same.
There are some people, we give them everything they want. They ask us for a home, they have it. They ask us for good life, they get it, they ask us for plenty of children, we give it to them.
But when they are in the midst of their enjoyment, now these same particular people,
they have all of this goodness now and they have now begun to enjoy this, this goodness. And this is no problem. We haven't reached to any issue yet. Allah has given us Nirvana and we enjoy the snare Ma, ha ha the higher This is something good and this is something allowed. The problem here is when this now becomes a shade
and blinds you from giving thanks to Allah, thanking him by doing the things that are Heller and staying from the things that are hot on.
And we see example after example, throughout our lives with people that we meet, throughout our lives with people that we meet.
And so, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to indeed protect us from the state of hoffler. For it is a state that a person can be completely blind to completely blind falling into the state and not
ever been able to see it? And this is all as we mentioned to you a trap from Allah Zilla Jen.
In another Hadith
the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us
that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give time to the volume. We just touched on this briefly. give time to the person to commit error, or to commit volume and transgression amongst the people to cause facade to cause problems and fitna into dystonia. Allah will give them this chance. There are certain people that Allah will do this. Give them let them continue oppressing one another until Allah azza wa jal will seize them
and will seize that person. This is an area in sola to hood worker then he can offer the job bouquet either offer the Kora where he avana in the whole element chedid
that Allah subhanho wa Taala says such is the seizure of Allah azza wa jal that Eliza will gel will sees a group of people when they are committing wrong
and then his punishment will come down to them at a certain time.
So they are busy in this play, they are busy in this enjoyment, and then all of a sudden when they least expected this is when Allah will bring down his punishment. And this is one of the sooner one of the ways that allies so agenda will punish the people will punish those who are in the state of this lefleur
allow them to enjoy the dunya allow them to enjoy the goodness. But after seeing that after Allah has given them this goodness after goodness, they are not thanking him. They are not worshipping Him. They are not following the rules that Ally's had placed in his core urn, and in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
let it slide and then trap him when he least expected trap him and punish him. In Allah he were in LA he Rajon May Allah subhana wa tada indeed protect us and our families from this.
We move on, I'm sure now, all of us here should have an idea of how the state of offer is implemented, how somebody can fall into the state of offer. And now we move to a second portion, which is the characteristics of the people of color. How does somebody know that they are in the state of a muffler?
For the answer, we go to an important area in order to out off in where Allah azza wa jal tells us
what occurred is our nanny Johanna Kathy, or Amina Genie will ins Luca lube life Kahuna beha. When a home
law you will see Runa Bihar, one of whom don't lie smartwool nebia
Ola he can kill Anam Bell whom above Allah ecohome hoffy loon Allah azza wa jal tells us in this important area in sola till arid off
that surely, we have created the fire
with jinns and mankind and human beings in this fire. Now what are these people who are going to be sitting in this fire? What kind of people are these? Now Allah tells us the first characteristic of these people love him kulu life Kahuna beer. These people have hearts that are cold and can't ponder on anything.
These people who are in the fire, have hearts that are cold, that are stoned, that are dark and filled with sin.
Now what kind of a heart is this? This is the type of heart
that a person may not necessarily be committing sin after sin after sin. Not only this, but this is also a heart
that a person would be praying, praying to God praying all their soul out doing the fasting going for hedge after hedge after hedging yet they are still following a falling into the same sins that they've been falling into before they've been doing all of these things.
They keep coming into the same sins over and over and over and there's one particular example
I have a brother who emailed me saying to me that he is happy that
he leads taraweeh
and he has gone to Hajj several times in his life, but he has a problem with what I as a biller committing Zina
Subhana Allah. So, you can see here that this is a state that the person is in something is not right with the heart of this person. And it was later learned, it was later learned that the brother actually had many issues regarding his heart and his sincerity for doing these things and a lot punished to this person. So panela to the point now, that instead of memorizing or have memorized 30, just from the poor and the brother can only hold on to four sources.
So Pinilla instead of being able to lead taught are we, in the masjid the brother, the brothers says to me, that he can barely wake up for Salah to ledger in his own home.
And so all of this goes back to a heart life Kahuna via a heart that is completely secluded to sincerity in this religion. And the law continues that the same people in jahannam under the spire, level kulu blijf Kahuna be how well, are you liable? sirona be here, and now they have eyes that they can't see. What does this mean? It doesn't mean that they're blind. These people have perfect sight in the dunya these people have perfect eyesight.
But still they were blind to what they were blind to Allah azza wa jal and his commands, they were blind to see that there are brothers and sisters around them following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet they did not take any lesson from them.
But instead, they decided to criticize.
How many times have you heard it? How many times have you heard it? That for example, a brother decides to grow his beard
and another brother will come and tell him and criticize criticize him for growing a beard and tell him Yeah, you don't you look old or you look this and that and criticize rather than to say to the brother, Masha, Allah, Allah has blessed you and increased you in this religion. May Allah keep you this way, or increase you in this path.
I get complaints after complaints after complaints, so panela from sisters who are complaining that they have put on the hijab,
yet their parents, or an uncle or a mother or an aunt or somebody in the community, is pressuring them to take off the hijab, because why they saw beauty in them before they put the hijab on, but they see no beauty in them now with the hijab on
and just a side note here, especially for the sisters, the hijab is not a element of beauty. This is not the purpose of the hijab. The purpose of the hijab is to bring humility in the sight of Allah azza wa jal. This is why a sister, one sister can put on a beautiful hijab
and another sister can put on just a piece of cloth. And yet both of them can have the same status in front of allies origin.
Yet one of them spent more money has a more beautiful color, whatever the case is, and one doesn't. Yet they have the same status in front of Allah.
The hijab is not an element of beauty, but it is an element to lead you towards humiliation and shyness to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And Allah continues
love him as an ally of Smyrna, Bihar and they have ears, yet they can't hear with them.
These people weren't deaf or these people aren't deaf. They didn't have any hearing aid or nothing like this. These people were living in the dunya
and they would be sitting in their cars or in their homes or they will come to the massage it and here the total we are here the silhouette and here the portal and there will be little
to pour an after core and there will be listening to lectures after lectures, there will be listening and listening and listening to reminders of this beautiful way of life, the life of Islam, yet
it has not affected them in any way.
They will hear that Allah azza wa jal
will speak about punishing them will surely Khun punishing the people of shirk.
Yet after listening to a surah speaking about shock,
and after listening that Allah will never accept and forgive shook,
they will come out of their homes or they will come out and leave and they will fall into some form of shock and not have any care not have any precaution to protect themselves from falling into this great sin.
They will hear that Xena is held on
they will hear that this Xena thing adultery etc is haram.
But yet they will go into the marketplace. They will go into the grocery store, they will go back to school, they will go back to work and they cannot lower their gaze. And we know of the authentic hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he tells us that even the eyes commit Zina. Even the eyes commit Zina. The hands commit Zina the ears commit Zina.
So it Xena does not only mean you actually do the action of Xena, with some involving someone else Kela this is not the case.
And so Allah continues now, after describing the heart, the eyes and the ears, the three main components for a person to increase themself in this religion, or to decrease themselves in this religion.
If a person His heart is affected, then automatically they will see the result of their heart. And their hearts will be open to hear the goodness about their religion. Everything is connected. Once your heart is good, your eyes, you will love to see good. And once you love to see good, you will love to hear good. And the same thing is for the opposite. And then Allah continues describing these people in the jahannam stating that Ola ecal inom. These people are like animals.
But Allah doesn't stop there. Benham abala Allah says no, they're not just like animals, they are worse than the animals
ecoman hoffy loan
These are the people who are in the state of LA.
They are worse than the animals. If you have a cat or a dog, and you tell them to sit,
most of the times the dog or cat will sit or they will remain. Or if you have a cow or a camel or whatever the case is, and you give orders to these animals they will follow these orders. These are practical examples. And this is not always the case with humans. This is not always the case when humans give advice to each other, especially concerning the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And Allah tells us, why are these people worse than the animals not only because they don't follow orders all the time? Why are these particular people who are in the state of Alabama? Why are they worse than the animals? We come to an A in order to hedge where Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us it is a lengthy Ayah so we won't necessarily quote it in Arabic.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us Do you not see lm Tara and the La Jolla studio and a la jolla studio la who Memphis semilla to woman fill out was shamsur one comma one new June well gee Bella was shadow. What de la boca fi Romina na roominess and the IRA continues. Allah azza wa jal is telling us Do you not see all that is within the heaven and the earth, prostrate to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The Sun prostrates to Allah, the moon prostrates to Allah, the stars prostrate to Allah. The clouds prostrate to Allah.
Everything the trees, the grass, the flowers, the plants, everything that Allah has created with life prostrates to Allah, and Allah continues, and the ayah continues what della boop. What Kathy roominess, the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountain, the vegetation, the animals, the insects, and many humans all prostrate to Allah, an ant, a cockroach, every single, every single insect, a ladybug, a cat, or rabbit, all prostrate to Allah subhanahu wa taala.
And if all of these things that may sometimes look very petty, very small in the eyes of humans, prostrate to Allah, yet there are still humans.
There are still some brothers and sisters, born Muslims still do not prostrate to Allah, Allah Al anon bent upon this, these people are like animals in front of Allah. No, these people are worse than the animals as you have seen in salt and Hajj.
And then we continue brothers and sisters
with another point, which will lead us into our final point.
This is our Another point that we will discuss why are
these people or some people like the people of hoffler? Why is it that they take the orders of Allah lightly? Why is it that there's some people when you when they hear orders from Allah, or they hear lectures and Hadith and so on, they take it as something light. I take it. I've heard that before. Oh, that's common sense. They take it as something very light. For example.
once a brother reminded another brother about the Hadith of the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminding us Let kulu be Shima do not eat with your left for English shaytaan yakushima For verily the shave time, each with his left hand or with his left.
I mentioned this to a brother. And the brother said
why is that important? Just eating.
This is the number one sign of a person falling in the state of love. We live in a religion. We follow the most beautiful and complete way of life in where Allah azzawajal even teaches us how to walk.
Alone lesbian I am Shawn Allen out of the hohner
a lesbian I am Chanel, Otto the homeowner from the characteristics of a Mothman is a person that walks walks with his feets with his footsteps with no pride, but rather he walks with humility. He walks with shame in front of allies so agile,
what is our heart? What is the heart of a human so called Salama? This person? When people talk to him, and they exchange words of evilness and they insult him and put him down, etc, etc, etc palu selama they return the most meaning they return with words of goodness. This is the completeness of this religion that we are even taught how to speak and how to walk. And believe me, this is exactly what Allah means when he says uh, yo mama Kemal Tula, come Dina come, I can melt. Today I have completed a way of life for you completed meaning there is nothing that can be put in or taken out. It is perfect and complete. In whatever aspect you want to look at it.
And so, this is one of the reasons why people fall fall into the state of hoffler is they Pollyanna, they learn but they won't practice or they won't pay attention or they will take things very lightly.
And then inshallah we will just move ahead to the last and final point. We don't want to go over our time
out of Canada, find out what
we now know and
insha Allah, this disease of Allah hoffler we understand how it can affect someone we understand in sha Allah, the characteristics of a person who is in the state of Allah hoffler
and I wish to always leave you with something positive and something practical for you to think about and inshallah implement, whether it is for yourself or someone you know, who could be in the state of Allah Fleur, how do you cure such a disease? What is the cure? The first thing that someone can do and there are many, but we will only mention a few of them. This sir, the first thing that someone can do
is to understand the purpose of life, the purpose of why you are here in this dunya
understand, that we are all servants of Allah azza wa jal and all of us know of the famous earlier a very important idea in sort of the valley yet well Now holux will gin well in in earlier there, you say, Lilia Boudewijn
that we have not created mankind or jinn except for one sole purpose, one sole purpose and that is for worship. And worship does not mean that you come to the masjid five times a day, and you pray your five solar worship does not mean alone, that you wear the hijab or you take care of a family. Worship does not mean alone that you fast in the month of Ramadan, or you go for Hajj every year. This is not what worship is, for those souls sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in an authentic hadith kulu Maru Finn sadaqa a better everything that you do, that is good, that is positive and has an origin from the poor and or sooner or has some type of positive influence in this religion, then
it is a form of charity. And charity is a form of a binder, a smile, a handshake, all of these things are a form of very bad
to take a spoon of food and feed it to your wife, or your wife feeds you with a spoon of food, feeds it to her husband. All of this is very bad.
All of this is a bad idea. You know, that if you take a piece of candy, and you put it in your wife's mouth, for the sake of pleasing her, then Allah azza wa jal will reward you for this.
If the wife
she is pleasing to the eyes of the husband, she doesn't do anything. The husband comes home from work and he sees her and he's pleased with her. He doesn't say a word Somali, come close, and he's done. And he leaves and he's pleased and his heart is content with what he sees. And she's just sitting there, she will get reward from Allah azza wa jal for this.
And so everything in our entire life is very bad.
Sleeping, going to sleep at night can also be very bad. Now, listen to my word, it can be very bad. It's not always very bad, but you can make it very bad. So don't think that sleeping 14 hours every night is shallow, I'm going to sleep in because I want to do some very bad. This is the case, sleeping so that you can energize yourself, to go to the masjid to wake up for tahajjud realize that every moment your eyes is closed and you lie down in your bed and you sleep that Allah azza wa jal is rewarding you because you are in the state of Alabama. So prior to law,
do you know brothers when you go to work, realize that there are some more lemma. Some of the LMR said say to us that there is no difference. If a man says I am going to work, then a man saying I'm going for a better there's no difference. For your jobs that you use to provide for yourself and your families. Every moment you spend in your jobs, you're in the state of Alabama.
And so brothers and sisters realize that this dunya What is your sole purpose and this is one of the things
That will cure you and from cure us from the state of Allah hoffler. Another thing and this is important for our Shabaab for our teenagers.
One thing that you can do to remove yourself or protect yourself from the state of offline is to remove yourself from anybody else around you who's constantly committing sin.
A person who is constantly doing hold on and happens to be your friend. This is not a friend in the sight of Allah azza wa jal.
This is not a friend that you should have that when you go to school with them, they're smoking a cigarette.
When you are coming from school with them, they are taking their ear for earphones and they're giving it to and say here listen to this new CD I bought.
This is not a friend that is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal even if they are Muslim, even if they are Muslim.
You are either to give them naziha and if it doesn't work, you are to find another friend. You are to be around the people who know Masada theme kulu masala, he'll be around the people of truth be around the righteous people. And these are the people that when solid time comes and you are not in the masjid, the brother or the sister will come to you and say I
just want to remind you, it's time for Salah let's go make will do. This is the friend that inshallah you will see him on your piano and inshallah you will sit with him beside you will sit with him in your agenda. This is the friend that you want. As a law tells us in sort of twofold con, that there will come a time on your piano. When a man will stand in front of Allah and he will be biting his fingers he will be biting in fear. And Allah will show this person
and show this person the life that they lived in the dunya with their friends.
And this person will be biting their fingers, wishing and asking and saying to Allah Oh Allah give me another chance. Let me go back to that dounia. And let me choose a friend that kept me on call out of school, or Carla, let me go back to the dunya and find a friend that would bring me back onto the religion of Islam.

And he came to me and he told me a story of how he memorized por el, he memorize 23 Jews in the Koran
by listening to his friend reading, his friend was a half of the court. And he used to go to the home with this friend and go to school with his friend every single day. And the friend would always say here, I want you to listen to me, and he would be holding the most half. And he's listening to his friend. And before you know it, before you know it, he never had a teacher. He never sat with the poor and really recite each area over and over and memorize it, he only memorized it from the voice of his friend and 23 years of the poor end. And then hamdulillah He finished the rest on his own.
This is the friend that you want and these are the people that you want to be with.
