And brothers and sisters, we are now at verse number 21, verse number 21, a heavy heavy verse, a real wake up call an enormous reality check. Let's jump right into it. Because it's verse 21, in where I've got the title of this video, yeah, you have Latina M and O people of mn letter W Hotel, it shaytaan. So here's number one, Allah says, Don't follow the footsteps of Shelton that's poor ends way of saying, don't follow the temptations of shadeland. Don't follow follow when shaitan makes something beautiful. Just because
it's beautiful. Just because it's attractive. Just because it's desirable. Whatever it is, doesn't mean you jump right into it doesn't mean you follow along, doesn't mean you go with the flow, there must always and forever. And all human beings have to have this. There is no such thing as living life without any self control. self control is part of being a good, overall obedient human being in every regard. So whether it be spiritually obedience in terms of the law, obedience, and respecting people respecting their privacy, respecting who they are respecting that you live on this earth. Everything about us revolves around self control. You know, I can't just, you know, take garbage and
just throw it wherever I want. I've got to control that and find a garbage bin and put it there. And even now, you know, you don't just get to dump any garbage in the bin. Now, just recycling now, there's certain things that you have to do you have to organize the garbage as well. And why do you do that? Because you care about the environment, care about the planet to care about people around you. I can't just walk up to anybody and be a racist and hate them because of the way they are. Because I didn't design them. I didn't create I didn't do anything. Just like how no one you know, none of these people designed me. They had no say in that. We are who we are and I have to respect
that letter W Hotel, it shaytaan is shaytans influence to make you do the things that are completely
Contrary to human behavior, you know, that's one massive form of the temptation of shape one, to make you say things, do things or act in a way that has nothing to do with human behavior whatsoever. That's why today, we have people that do the most unspeakable things, unimaginable things. You know, some lady flushing her baby down the toilet, because she doesn't want to be a mother anymore. Hey, what? Some guy shooting and killing somebody, because he looked at him the wrong way. You serious? And now, you know, these days, the crimes and the types of crimes are almost endless. How in the world, the people reach this way? How did they get to this point, completely
insensitive, and complete disregard for human life. Now, just because you're standing somewhere, and you look different, you could die, somebody will come and just take your life, because you just look different. You don't belong. This is my God. This is our home, man. What do you want me to go when we go to Mars and live there when we go somewhere else. This is where we all live. I can't do anything about the way I look.
But that's just how, and this is the starting to all of that is that when people fall in, and I'm not trying to make an excuse, that everything is just from shaitan. But this is an enormous
I guess you could say an enormous part of the picture that
everything at the end of the day, that's evil, that's unacceptable, whether it be socially, culturally, spiritually, is all somehow intertwined and connected to the influence of the shaitan himself, once enemies wants people to hate on each other. Now,
that's step one. If shade time can convince you to follow along. You know, when you follow footsteps of someone, you can still make a decision to leave off those tracks and go somewhere else. So you still have some control, don't you? You could see the footsteps. And you're following along all of this. And then you could decide you know what, forget about this guy. I'm gonna go this way. Instead, there's still some control. Watch what happens next. This is where it gets really, really horrible. Well may be a lot to shake on. This is a lot our Creator telling us about ourselves what we very often can't see or understand. Whoever follows the whole lot. the footsteps of Showtime for
inaho then Showtime. Yeah, model bill fascia, you will mourn killed, then shaitan will commend you and simply tell you to do acts that are shameful, and things that are despicable and unacceptable. You know what that means? This is how shaitan says, Now your mind, I own you. You can't do anything. You've been following me for so long. Now you there's no turning back your mind. You're my slave. Now. All I got to do is tell you click the website and you do it. All I have to do is tell you just go to the hotel, and then you and her just just go. Don't worry about it. And you do it. All I have to do is tell you Yeah, just say it say the word. Who cares how wrong it is. Just say it and you do
it. You are similar. Now we'll alternate with me now not with a law.
Check how frightening that is. And you know, what brings this a even more to life is just how real the a is. Just how real you know you have politicians and leaders that are like puppets in the sense that whatever their superiors, what are their their
supporters, and those that fund their policies and their campaigns and their rhetoric, whatever they say, yeah, I'll do it.
I'll do it. You want me to say that you want me to make that comment on the microphone in front of 10 million people? Sure. I'll do it. I don't care.
That's like shavon. shavon is like the head, the head. He's the guy on the top now. And now you don't have to think twice about how people feel. You don't have to think twice about what you say. If it hurts anyone if it rubs anybody the wrong way. And none of those things because why? I own you, you are mine now. So Allah, may Allah protect us. You see why young people have to hear these verses. Because when they get that pressure at school or with friends or online and social media when they get that pressure and it keeps slapping them in the face.
24 hours a day they're going on Instagram or whatever and they just see stuff that's helpful to who to shoot on. And you know, a lot didn't say oh Latina am an LED to clear all hotel attache Tom don't just obey and blindly follow along the footsteps of shaitan ally used to work that tibial you know, tibia comes from the word at batroun, and et baritone and thought are twin are two words that are commonly found throughout the core and when you obey someone. So what's the difference? When a lie uses a tee barrel in here?
These people are not just following the footsteps of shaitaan. They're asking about it. They're inquiring about it. So what happened next? Yeah, I know, I said that. And I saw them they got so angry. But then what did they do after? Yes? Yes, they got depressed, thank God, because I hate her. hate him. Thank God, they did that. At Barrow shaped line. They're thinking about what's their next step, they go through this detailed extensive plan of how to do everything wrong, and they just do it. How it is. And this is where when you ask the question, how could a guy just walk up to an innocent man sitting outside domestic and slit his throat and kill them on the spot and just run
away? How do you go back home and eat and sleep?
This is where you have become literally the servant of shape like you are the slave of shape. And how did it start off? You had a history where you were just like thinking about it. Maybe one day I'll do it now. Okay, let me just watch a few movies, movies of you know, the walking dead.
That's entertainment. Now, when you watch people's when you watch human beings devouring each other, all that gore all that but that's become entertainment that's become something where you sit at home with the family and you're sitting and you're watching Walking Dead episodes really
is it's unreal. That's how that's where we got to now that's in 2020. That's where we're at.
That's where we're at. So panela
if you don't see through this stuff, the next stage the next phase of at battle shaytaan is yet Moodle bill fasher. Showtime doesn't have to tempt you no more. You just tells you what to do. You just do it. You need to think twice now, to even think twice. You don't even hesitate to do the wrong thing. You just do it. It's it's that natural. It's that simple.
You know, I remember back in the days when I was in high school, if I you know, I remember like talking to some of my friends, right? And if they were going to like fight somebody or steal something from somebody, right? And they would like pressure me Go go just grab their shoes, grab their lunch, grab their, this, grab their knapsack, do something. And I just couldn't do it. Like Nah, man. And then the dude will be like, Don't worry, I'll do it. And he'll just literally go up to another kid steal something from him and just walk away. And he's like, yeah, so what? Who cares? Like, hey, you didn't feel anything for that kid. Gets crying, man. Look at him. He's so upset. He's
crying now. God knows where his stuff what's inside this bag? Why did you do that? Just no care. No love and appreciation for a fellow human being. It's almost disappeared. That's how we know that shaitan now owns Smith, Allah protect us from that.
Well, I will afford the law here. alikum warahmatu. What is this the fourth time now we heard this verse. If it wasn't for the virtue and protection and rotten, of Allah Meza can mean comin ahead. None of you could save yourself from this stuff, and purify yourself. None of you could do it.
You know, this verse.
If you are someone that is not doing the things that have been mentioned in the sort of so you're not involved in zinna you're not backbiting and gossiping and spreading rumors about people. You're not, you know, talking about anyone's family. You're not in involved in any type of shameful despicable acts. A lot is saying that's because a loss protection and his Rama is with you. That's why, because if it wasn't for that stuff Meza, coming coming ahead, none of you could protect yourself. In other words, Allah is telling us what we probably don't know about ourselves is that if you did not have that connection with Allah, everything that shaitan tempted you with you would have
right into it.
You know, right now,
I know one particular brother, a very respectable guy, very respectful guy
that he's in. He's in a situation where somebody is literally throwing themselves at him
to commit Zina the rowing themselves at him.
This guy's married, he's got children. He settled down in his life. And he's a pretty practicing brother. And someone is there literally begging for alone time with him.
And he kept saying, no, it's like, No, I don't want to. He came to this close.
He told me the entire story so detailed. All he had to do was just open the door and she was right. He walked right up to the door. She was right behind the door, and he still walked away. He's like, No, I can't I can't do this. I know better. I can't I can't my kids my I just can't know. I gotta stop. I gotta keep fighting this I got to overcome this. Until this day, that brother never actually stepped in to the act of Xena. But he's still with the tea barrel hotel watershed while he's still following the footsteps of Shetland. Why am I saying that? Because he's still leading up to the actual act but he just didn't cross over yet. So he's still got a lot of work to do. He's got to
eliminate all the things that are leading him there.
But you see that moment of finding strength and finding you know, the the strength to say no and stop. It's the temptations the hotel lights are everywhere. The footsteps to follow shaytaan are all over you. And you're like, No, no, no, I just I can't I can't
That's a lot. That's a less protection on you.
So don't take it for granted is my is my message here. Brothers and sisters don't take this for granted. When you have a man. That's what a man does. A man really steps in and protects you. But where does that even come from? Well, Ola for the law here it Kumara that if it wasn't for Allah's protection and virtue upon you, and his Rama, you'd never be able to overcome these things. While akinola yuzaki mania, sure, but it's actually a lot. That's the one that protects you and purifies you from everything. You have to thank Allah for that. You don't think about the fact that you went to Islamic classes for the last 27 years. That's why you gain the strength. No, there are lots of
people who graduate from Islamic programs and go back to square one. All they did is they downloaded a ton of information in their brain but not in their heart. Their email is not moved. So yeah, they could be really smart islamically they're gonna memorize poor and and done it all. The guys still committing the same, the same problems, the same sentence, he's still doing the exact same thing. And if anything, it might be even worse. It might be even worse now. He thought that, you know, knowledge of the dean would have become the spiritual shield around him. You can't have these like spiritual airbags that are rappelling off sit everywhere. No.
That's a law man. That's what a lot is a law protects you. And some of the tools that he gives you so that you can protect yourself as he gives you some knowledge gives you some Amen. But Allah wants to see what you to do with it. Let's let's see how you treat this stuff. Let's see how you nurture your email. Let's see, let's see what you do. Let me let me throw a really, really tempting image or picture in front of your face. And let's see if that will turn into the first step. Let me throw another website now in front of your face. Let's see if that's going to be a couple more steps. Now you're following the shaytaan I just gave you all of these things out of My Mercy and my blessing to
use it. Let's see what you're doing. Oh, you're messing it up. Okay, fine, shape line, take him. You own him. Do whatever you want.
Subhan Allah. May Allah azza wa jal give us strength and protect us Aloma mean, well, Allah who sent me on the island of La here's everything and has knowledge of everything. While I tell you all fondly Ming Chrome, remember I told you that Abu Bakar one of his one of the members of his family was also part of the spreading those rumors against Russia about the lohana.
And so the only thing that he did is that he, you know, he could have went and punched the guy in the face. He could have cut off ties with him. The only thing that Abu Bakar or the alohar in this man's heart is so incredible. He just says okay, I'm not gonna I'm not gonna give him extra money.
I'm not gonna perform extra acts of righteousness that involve him I'll just I'll just stop that that's it.
He doesn't do what people today do.
If you say something if you text something and it's misinterpreted your whole relationship is done that's what we do that's what the jaw held that's what the ignorant people out there that's what they do. Now even if you you don't even text you don't even type nothing You don't even say that you just look at somebody the wrong way. Oh, what's What's his problem? Why did he do that? You know what forget him. I bought Bukhara is the father of our Isha or the Alaa whiner.
And this men,
people are talking about his daughter. They're spreading lies about his daughter.
And, and came so close that it actually reached within his extended family. People in his extended family are part of the rumor. What does he do? He has every right to do whatever he wants, and he's just saying, okay, you know, I'm not gonna give you any more money.
By, that's it.
We'll put a Ludus les says, Don't let it stop when Teddy will fondly Lincoln with what virtue and honor that we gave you, that we blessed you with shows you like companions, they have a totally different status. And Abu Bakar is like above all of that. He's in a separate category by himself
was security and all of the vast wealth and luxury and knowledge and he meant that we blessed you with don't stop sharing that stuff. And you too, will you stop giving that to your relatives. So even though Abu Bakar said, Okay, fine. And I'm going to give you any more extra stuff.
The lessons don't stop.
Don't stop sharing.
Just imagine if this area came to you and I like to us. Don't cut off your relatives just like that. Don't stop sharing your wealth. Don't stop protecting. No, no, don't do that. Allah says Don't do that. Don't cut off those things.
Well, Mr. Keane, and helping the people who are in need one more hygiene
and the migrants that came from Mecca to Medina, you're one of them as well, Abu Bakar. So don't don't just stop that you got to remember, you are a companion of this men. sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's different for you. So don't stop the expectations. It shows us here the expectations that Allah has with companions is a completely different level than what he has for you. And I
see Sabina level mohajir in a few sebelah Well, Leah Phu when Leo's fire Oh, God, well, the Apple Apple. Apple is like when you forgive somebody, but you're also saying don't do anything to him either. That's awful. That's pardoning somebody. Just leave them alone. Leave them alone. It's okay. Just let it go. That's awful. So a lot tells people who are in the same situation. Just let it go.
Try telling that to some relatives, some, you know, aunts and uncles, maybe some siblings in laws, who just you know, develop this grudge against you. And you're like, Look, man, can we just let it go? Can we just put it behind us? Can we just forget about this? It's so trivial. It's so dumb. Like, can we just stop?
And they look at you? And they're like, No, no, no, it's over between us forever. I'll see you on the Day of Judgment.
But I was just an accident. It was just one word I texted, and it's it was sent to the wrong person. It wasn't even a curse word, nothing is just misinformation. Sorry, you're gonna flush down our 20 year relationship, family relationship, down the toilet because of one word in a text message. That's it, it's over. Really, you know, these people who do stuff like that they're the shame of society. There's the shame of the family,
that they would cut ties with you, for the most trivial things. If you have and I think we all have somebody like that in the family. If you have people like that, just keep that in the back of your mind. That's the shame of the family. And you're gonna have to figure out different ways to work and work through that and navigate through that. And my point is here, you don't just ignore it, you have to try to navigate through it somehow. Somehow you've got to work through it. So panela and just the whole idea of forgive and forget it's not easy. It's easier said than done. Because you know why? Whenever we're cutting out has to go back in front of his relative. Don't you think that
okay if he stopped
Giving back money to this kid. Don't you think that Abu Bakar in the back of his mind like you're the one that was part of that rumor? It was it would sit it'll, it'll rest in the back of his mind somewhere, he will constantly be reminded of that. You were part of slandering my daughter for the rest of his life.
So here's a really tough thing to do to forgive and forget. But Allah is saying, do it. Well, yes, final? Yes, final comes from the word soft how you know it's soft is sometimes when you turn a page. So let's say well, you
start fresh. Turn a new page in your life. start fresh, put it behind you let it go. Leave it alone. Okay. And that's born on El Faro Lola Kondo. True love when Allah forgives you.
Look, look how Allah knows us better than he knows anything about ourselves. Like, don't you love when Allah forgives you? Look how much you screw up in your life to me, because many things you do that are so messed up. Don't I always forgive you? So what's your problem? Why you can't forgive someone else? So panela man if that area stopped there, how to just be like God, Allah is just really putting me in my place right now. Oh my gosh, I am such a fool for thinking this way that I have this right that I could just walk with my chest up high and cut off relationships with that person or that person this or just everybody's just out my world.
And allies like Who in the world do you think you are?
If that was the case, well I would love for Bula here it
wasn't for my virtue and my my Rama on you man. You don't even know what I would have done with you. But instead, well Lahore fudo Rahim Allah just was exceptionally Forgiving and Merciful, merciful towards you. So if Allah is like that to you, why can't you be at least something similar with others? Why can't you just forgive and just put it behind you.
In the Latina your moon Omar Sana Tila hace la mina te Lori nofit doing yarwell earthhero t wala humara de buena el team those who throw a you know, remember we saw this verse when they throw rumors and scandal against women that are protected, as well as the heatless ones as well as believers. Anybody? Anybody you already know for dunya while they're curse will be in this world and in the earth that are well of Martha funeral theme. And for them is a painful torment. A less taking the stuff in his own hands by the way. You'll Natasha do our Li l Sienna to whom what ad What are Julio whom Bhima can react metal, you're gonna love this I am on that day, your limbs, your tongue,
your hands, your legs, they will testify against you for what you used to do.
We are dictators over our limbs. You know what a dictator is? It's somebody that forces you to do something you don't want to do.
What Allah is telling us here is number one,
your tongue doesn't want to say the things you're making it say. Remember that verse back in the previous episode about his tele Kona and seen a taco bell cinetic ad
is the Laconia who bL cinetic. On what aku Luna bf where he can, when you allowed that thought to meet your tongue, and then your tongue turned it into words and voiced what they heard.
Now, on the day of judgment, we don't own our tongues anymore. That dictatorship that we had over our tongues over our hands, that we forced it to do and say things that in and of itself, it didn't want to. Now Allah takes away our control over our limbs. And now they start telling a lie. Oh Allah, He made me do that. He made me say those things. I didn't want to say those things. He made me walk to those places. I didn't want to walk there. He may be used those like he used me for that kind of harm. I didn't want to.
This is so so unbelievable, guys.
You know, what we learned from all of this so far is just the magnitude of wrong. No matter how common and how habitual and it can be, how much we're surrounded by it how much that we do with
this stuff. Our own limbs will stand in front of Allah and see he and she was the one that made me do it. You
If I didn't do it, but in this world, we force our tongues to say the wrong thing. We force our hands and our limbs to do the wrong thing.
So we are dictators of our limbs Subhanallah I don't know why I'm so uncomfortable with that. I'm so uncomfortable with the idea that I'm forcing my tongue to say stuff. That the tongue one my own tongue one day will say, I didn't want to talk that way. I didn't want to say those things. The thought of it alone is frightening to me and it makes me really uncomfortable.
It's also teaches us that in our fifth are how Allah subhanaw taala created us. We are naturally good people. We we like to do the right things. That's naturally who we are.
Do kids grow up just being evil? No. You know, many times and I'm sure all of you who have you know young children? Don't you see when they're at the playground? How they make friends with other kids in like five seconds. But then us parents sitting by the bench and you look at the parents of those kids and you're just
she just looks at you and like what the heck are you I don't even know you.
And you're looking at like, Okay, that was awkward. But both of our kids at the playground are like best friends in about five seconds. They're so pure, so innocent.
So it shows that the way that Allah designed us we it's in our fifth or our natural inclination as human beings is to do the right thing. But we train and force and dictate our limbs to do the wrong things. We train it to do that way. And then the Day of Judgment, Allah will reverse it back but this time we own nothing.
Now your limbs will be like yeah, it's their fault. It wasn't me Subhan Allah. May Allah give us strength but Allah forgive us.
sabetha to Yama either you will see whom Allah who Dena whom would help on that day Allah will give his full full retribution
or Dino who would help we are the owner and Allah who was born will be in and then we're going to definitely see the true reality that Allah is the truth and it's clear and it's real. And hobbies, too little hobby. thena while hobby soon a little hobby. Third a vile women belong to vile men and vile men deserve vile women. That's how it should be what Ally's telling us here is this is how it's meant to be vile with vile. And then a look and Tina's well play you better to play up, you know, we'll play you boneta he bet.
The good women deserve good men. And good men deserve good women.
They deserve each other.
They deserve one another. So if your vile, filthy in nature, in character in attitude and presence, all of those things, then that individual deserve somebody equal to them or similar to them. That's how society should function. That's the formula that the end gives us. You deserve each other this way, because you're the same
so that the accountability can just be bubbled between the two of you. But good people deserve good people as well.
You will see like some marriages, like I didn't deserve him. I grew up in a good home.
A good parents, they trained me Well, they changed me to be nice to people. Now. Don't be racist, don't be a hater. They told me to love people and to care about my neighbors until I married him.
And he's like, yeah, we're not gonna stick around those kinds of people. We don't want to talk to them. Everybody hates you just so bitter about everyone in life. I don't deserve that. That's what I was referring to here. should try to find somebody that is equal. It's not a command was saying like that's how it should be.
Oh, Allah ecomo Barbra una muy muy aku loan. Those are the people that they are absolved with what they say lo Mo Farah to worry scone caring for them. Allah azza wa jal will always be forgiving, and provide from his blessing provision. This is where we stopped for today in sha Allah huhtala.
Brothers and sisters just think about, you know, when the influence of shaitan and how far that can carry, how far that carries somebody. If one chooses to continue to follow, follow, follow. Nobody wants that's one. That's one scenario. But nobody wants to add to that now where shaitan owns us and puppets us the way that he wants. I don't want that. And then secondly, what we say and what we do in our actions. we own our choices now.
But there will come a time where even our choices we won't have we won't allow will lift that ownership.
away from us.
And the things that we thought we could control and own now they'll control us, our tongue will talk back to us, our hands will speak back to us and expose us. So May Allah give us strength that we do the right thing that we say the right thing. Because at the end of the day, we're still here, while he let you hunt, we always have an opportunity that every day we wake up to do the right thing and to say the right things, it's a good chance and an opportunity for all of us, be the lucky talent. So with that being said, I'll leave you with that. Insha Allah hoteller. Tomorrow is going to be the conversation about or not tomorrow, tomorrow's Friday, right? Usually Fridays, I don't have a
session. So maybe Saturday morning, inshallah, is when we're going to talk about the eyes. So we're going to come to those verses of that a lot of you asked about, about lowering the gaze and interaction with the opposite gender, I promise you, I'm going to, I'm going to share these verses with you. And I'm going to explain it in a way that perhaps some of you may have never heard, and it's all from the poor and it's all from the Quran, I'm gonna share with you a nice, healthy, balanced method or way that you and I could use no matter what culture and society you belong to, that can help you interact with the opposite gender, in a manner that's pleasing to Allah in a
manner that's not too conservative, but not too liberal at the same time, somewhere in between, and it's all found in the area itself. So I'm going to share that with you Saturday morning and shout Allahu taala just like Milo Hayden met Alonzo which will bless you all and bless you all to reap all the rewards and botica Veoma. Juma love them I mean, just like more level Hayden was Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
