was when you grow up into something your whole life. Home is home, right?
Home is home
Yeah. Yeah, it is. It's very, as a matter of fact, here in Houston, everything about Houston reminds me of Toronto. Because, you know, I mean, at least just in my short time, and in this part of the city, it's very clean.
You know, stores and places are sort of like spaced apart. And it's very similar to, to Toronto.
I'm used to coming to the states, just not this part of the states. I'm usually like in New York and the Bronx and the real the real ghetto unit. So you get a very complete opposite image of the states when you visit that part. crowded, congested things are, you know, old and rundown, at least the parts where I visit. But here it was, like very different. Even my wife doesn't believe when I tell her I was like, so clean, the houses are nice. The buildings are clean is very different.
But I still, yeah, don't don't come to Toronto.
Like move to Toronto? No.
Yeah, it's it's one of those things where, over time, it just changed. And it's becoming more and more difficult. I guess. It's like that all over all over the world. Right.
But anyhow, anyhow, let's, does anybody have any questions about anything we've been chatting about thus far?
You know, it's really nice. Some of you are still asking questions about last night's subject, which is very good.
I don't think that a lecture can do justice to the topic that the what the course that I wrote on gender relations, I teach it in two days, for 16 hours, and is a very, very, you know, large and comprehensive subject. And
so your questions definitely are welcoming. If you still do have some questions. We will have about 15 minutes or so, maybe 20 minutes after we're done today. So if you want to talk about that, or something that we've discussed here, fairly affordable, no problem inshallah. Okay, yellow Challis students, yella Bismillah if you could ask Allah for something in Jannah what would you ask for?
What's the first thing that pops to your mind? If you would ask Allah for something everything I shall is boy has faith in him. See that evolution everything right? Go ahead.
Very good to see loved ones who have passed away anything else
you would ask for Ask Allah
let me be amongst the Prophets the may be
because all the ice cream is there right?
In Jana, you got it already. What else would you ask Allah for?
guidance okay. I don't know how many I heard marriage but guidance okay.
For Aryan rail racing, goat Green Road Racing.
So what happens when you have the third coffee for the day?
Yes, sister go ahead.
To see Allah
Insha Allah we will all see Allah. For men Kenya Yoda Giulia, Pa rugby.
Remember that I at the end of Surah tell calf Lika whoever hopes to meet Allah. If no claim Rahim Allah Allah said lip ha here generally means in person.
When you say I'm going to have a call, which is literally a meeting, it has to happen in person.
For men can yo Zhu Li Hua or be whoever has this hope in them that they will meet their master Allah meaning the same eyes will look at him in sha Allah.
Amazing. So we are we are on that path and it's just up to us to stay on that path. Sincerely, and insha Allah Huhtala Yeah, I think about that a lot. Majan you get to see Allah in his true form.
I don't even know how to internalize what that would feel like because we don't have the capacity to do so.
But you see Allah in his true form which is a greater far more superior reward than all of Jana put together, right? May Allah give all of us that long I mean, okay, so I asked this question
because of this verse
Hold on let me see if I can adjust that
we go okay, there we go.
You guys all know this, this verse in a Latina Paulo Boone Allah from Mr. pommeau Ted turnersville Already he Mala Mala Iike
alerta Hafele wala Hassan what Erbitux will Jannetty Lottie quantum to our dual, I added two more. Okay, I'll get to the translation in a second national Oh Leah will come fill hayati dunya waffle Earth Euro wallet comfy hermitage te and for SOCOM while comfy hammer to their own. This is my favorite one of my favorite words in the entire Quran Newsela Newsela Minco photo Rahim. Okay,
Latina call Laura Boone Hola. So what has happened here? Surely those who say our Lord is Allah and that we remain steadfast. So the first part of our shahada, we say Allah is our master through master karma, then we live the life. We live our life that Allah is in charge. You know how you do that? It's been everything that we've been talking about. It's all the trust, it's the Tukwila. It's the Reliance it's the connection. I will pause my day, at least bare minimum five times for Allah. Why? Because I want to uphold what I have in my heart that I acknowledge and I affirm that Allah is my master, I am his slave. You know what's amazing about
reminding yourself you're a slave to Allah. If I call you a slave, it's the most humiliating thing in the world.
But when Allah calls us His slave, it's the greatest honor. It's the most beautiful thing in the world, so honored to be Allah slave. So when Allah says that he is our Rob, we submit to ourselves as Oh Allah, you are our Master. We live our life exemplifying that tennis elbow or la mala Mala, aka this Aya is talking about moments before our death.
Literally everybody is surrounding
you and I.
And we are about to die, the person's about to die moments before their death. Allah sends down an army of angels, these angels, they're coming with good news, because why of how they started, you live this kind of life, you remain steadfast. So the angels come and descend upon them, Mala Iike, not just one angel, a whole army of them. Some of the element they say,
you can actually see the reaction of the deceased if you happen to be standing in front of them when they see these angels. Those of you who might have been like next to somebody and watched and experienced them die, like literally watched him die in front of you. Do you recall, there was a moment when the deceased did this moments before they died? They might have been like sort of half asleep, and then they did this.
And they looked around.
That's what some of our scholars say. When their eyes open, and it's fixated in a spot or in an area and the look.
They see these angels coming.
It's one of the few few physical signs that someone's is going to die at that very, it's one of the very few.
Has anybody seen this? Yeah, it I'm sure there will be some of you. I've seen it many times, my own family and friends and so on many times, as recently as just a few months ago, I buried my one of my closest aunts. And the same thing right there. She looked around.
She died with cancer. So she was literally paralyzed in her bed for months.
And she's just sort of breathed. And I said Subhan Allah
What am I going to do when my turn comes? Subhan Allah.
So Allah says when they come these angels, you know, it's sad. It's it's a lot of pain.
This area at least helps us to get a glimpse that it's actually
A great moment for the deceased
because these angels come and they say two things, alert to half who will attack?
Don't be afraid. And don't be sad. Why is the deceased giving reassurance don't be afraid and don't be sad, because scholars they say, they're afraid because now they know they are going to meet Allah subhanho wa taala. And they are sad because they know that they are going to separate from their loved ones.
And this is why one of the sisters mentioned that to see your loved ones again.
I also think about the same thing.
I one of the things I would ask Allah is Allah Allah. I would like to see my aunt again. Maybe for some of you, my mom, my dad, my children, or Allah, share with me the secrets of the poor and you said I left la meme or lucky can you tell me what it really means?
Make when you think about what it is that you want from Allah.
Think about something that is personal to you. And I'm not pulling this out of left field. It's actually part of the verse and I'm going to come to it in a moment. Okay.
What Abby she will bill Jenna. So two reassurances and look, congratulations rejoice in the good news of parallel congratulations EB shuttle. You got Jana
allottee quantum to I don't it's the agenda. You've been promised this whole time. Congratulations, you did it. That is why our scholars unanimously say that when somebody gets the glad tidings of em Shiro Bill Jana, they will never ever want to come back in this world.
Because instead, they will hope to reunite with their loved ones in the afterlife.
So those of you who have loved ones that you are longing to meet in sha Allah,
and that Allah has accepted them from amongst his righteous. They don't want to come back to this world.
Don't wish for them to be back here. They're waiting for you and me.
There's a better life there. And because this is how they were welcomed in the era, of course they want you there. They want you there.
So may Allah reunite us with our loved ones in Jana? Allahumma. Me
It's not done. No Oh Leo can feel hieratic. These angels say we were your supporters. We were Oh yeah. Your Willie. We took care of you we were fighting off all these Shayateen with you because why? You had this Rabona Allah Mr. Karma, we will with you.
Phil higher to dunya waffleh Farah, the word the life and in the hereafter we're going to support you even in the hereafter.
We're going to be with you even in the earthhero okay to be with you and Jana, we're going to be with you on the Day of Judgment. When it's time and Allah says congratulations now go to agenda. The angels will come around each of us in Charlotte. Many of them
Salah Munna, la Combi ma Sabado, tune fenetre and Morocco Baghdad, there'll be flapping their wings. And they will say Sudan when I lay on like Salam or aleikum, peace beyond to you protection beyond to you for being so patient. Look at the ending you get.
So, so roughed world men a lot to endure. What a pain in this world at all levels. Angels come as a tsunami. Well, you did it. You hung on. You hung on despite the whole world was telling you go this way. You were like, No, I'm staying right here. You lost your parents, you lost children, your family, your friends, your relatives, the pain. Your heart got cut in a million pieces and you didn't even put it together. You left it open in a million pieces and you stayed here.
Congratulations, you did it. Well done. There's your family waiting for you in Jannah go. May Allah grant all of us that Allah has given me
what a comfy Her Majesty and full so Komodo comfy hum to Darwin. This is where I get the question here.
I get it from this part of the EO.
Two things you get to ask for in general, there's two ways you get to ask for things in Jannah. Number one is tiszta he HTML and that's this word here. That means you collectively ask. All of us here have things that we would collectively ask Allah for peace, happiness, guidance, love, security. These are things we all collectively as a creation we will want a lot of bless us with here and in the earth era.
So that takes care of the first one.
But then the second one,
and there you will have whatever
you asked for.
So I'm gonna ask you again.
What is the thing that you want from Allah? That if Allah said Fatima Meriam, Mohammed, Ahmed,
tell me what you want.
And think about that question. Imagine that it's just you and Allah, and he's asking you just what's on your mind? Asked me and I'll give it to you. What would you ask Allah for?
And there's so many things I would ask Allah for. But I can tell you that somebody who, you know, my passion is studying Koran and studying Tafseer and all of this stuff, right?
And the thing that I often think about is the secrets of poor and that we will never know. That's what I would ask Allah for first and foremost, like, oh, Allah. Tell me why Sudha Toba doesn't have Bismillah or, like, What's the real reason why you didn't do that? Because there are nine opinions why? So nobody really knows that the end Well, no, why did you exclude that? Surah
You know, the secrets in between you Oh, Allah, what is this a really mean?
That's what I often think about I also think about you tell me if you think about this, too, oh Allah. Let me meet that first Muslim in my entire family that started all of this. That first person that took the shadow the first verse and I want to meet him or her and I just want to say thank you to them.
What do you think about
you don't have to answer I just want you to have that in your why.
So that you can do this.
No zoulah Minh Ha Fouda Rahim and accommodation from the all forgiving and merciful Okay.
noozle remember this word? It's used in two ways in the Quran.
One way is talking about jahannam. And another way it's talking about Jana so it's talking about both extremes. It's been it's used for
this area and a yet like this. It's about Jana.
So what is a noozle?
When you go to a restaurant, they usually bring you some appetizers or there's some like bread and or tea or water or what have you right?
The main course
you know what's happening in the kitchen somewhere. You can probably smell it too. And you're like, This is Wow, wonder what's going on back there. Then when it comes out to you, they hear like you want to make sedge they're right on the table because like this is this is above and beyond.
So think of Newsela this way. No Zool is the appetizer.
So that means
everything you and I know about Jana, all the Hadith you've ever read all the area you've ever known
is just an appetizer.
The main course of Jannah nobody knows.
If you still haven't like registered that let me give you an example. The Prophet alayhi salat wa salam said, one shade of a tree in Jana, there will be a horse that will run around this shade. And it will take that horse 500 years to make one circle.
Prophet alayhi salatu salam said the sea meant between the bricks that are you know, that keep these structures and palaces and so on to is Musk perfume.
Each brick is made out of solid gold or silver. There is no dust or dirt in Jannah it's all saffron flowers. No one will go to the bathroom. No one will perspire or sweat. All of that filth doesn't exist. If you think of something in Jannah you don't go searching for it. It finds you. So if you think about I want like a real nice mango.
The mango tree bows down to you and you pick.
Ignore I best single the Allahumma say says that the fruits of Jannah share one thing in this world. Only the name
so there's a banana in Jannah. But the banana is not the same as this one. It's a totally different thing. FI harmala Iranian rocket so there's things in Jana Your eyes have never seen what are we doing?
Semia your ears have never heard while Hopper Isla Colby Bashar and your hearts can comprehend. By the way, that sentence that I just said in Arabic, that hadith or prophet dallisa to some that's the only sentence we know of alpha dos. So everything I just told you about the description of Jana are all the levels of Jana Alfre, dosa Ariela only one sentence we know about it. In it. Eyes, there are things that I've never seen ears have never heard the hearts can comprehend. That's all we know.
So all of that.
What does Allah say, oh,
that's just the appetizer.
The real rewards of Jana is when you get there, you'll see in show
an unreal, unreal, unbelievable. Everything you know about Jana is just an appetizer.
The opposite as I said to you is also true. Everything you know about the Jahannam Prophet alayhi salatu salam says that the insects of Jahannam will be the size of camels.
Okay, a scorpion will be the size of a camel, so on so forth, right? A sting of one insect will remain with the inhabitants of the Jahannam for 40 years, if somebody were to drop an item from the top of Jahannam to the bottom where the mafia cone are, it will take over 90 years to to reach the bottom. There is only one source of food. Does anybody know what it is in jahannam?
One source, what is it?
No, no, you've been watching The Walking Dead. Yeah.
Yes, sheduled a to zap home the tree of zap home. So scholars lay this out by the way.
So just just follow my my hands for a second. So there are seven levels of Jahannam goes like this, like stairs and they kind of come to be reached to the seventh, then they meet at the bottom of
the tree and its roots is at the bottom. And as it grows, all of its branches extend to each level. And each of the fruits and items that you bear from this tree and and the inhabitants come to carries a face and a live head of shaitan.
So the inhabitant is terrified
of just looking at the fruit.
Then when they bite into it, it's filled with you know a lot of awful things inflammation and personal like these are explicit Hadith these words, I'm not just throwing it out there explicit words from Hadith describing the effects even of how it will how the person digest their food in general, all of this has been laid up.
And at the end of the day,
all have that Allah says it's just ignorance, all
the real punishments of the jahannam. Nobody knows until they're there. May Allah never ever allow us to be from amongst them. Allahu Mami, I don't want to know what the I don't want to know what appetizers are in general. I don't even want to think about that. So may Allah protect all of us from that? So Newzoo lemon, or Fouda Rahim?
Why is this idea here? Why did they choose it? Well, it's very simple. When you have
a goal, and something to strive for here,
it encourages you, pushes you those days where you get tired and exhausted. And you know, you can do what you wanted what you need to do, it encourages you. So if the thing that's driving you that you're hoping that Allah will give you is to see your family again, want to see my mom want to see my dad and so on and so forth. It encourages you that you're working for it, you're not just gonna, that's all you want, none of you are going to work for that. So this is why experts you know, the Tony Robbins of the world and so on, they charge 1000s of dollars to train people how to set these goals for themselves, and to concentrate and focus on them. And Allah is just telling us in the
Quran, well, a comfy hammer to down you'll get what you whatever you ask, well, what are you thinking about? And that's what you concentrate on that. And not only are you going to get that, but that's just the intro. I'll give you the real reward based on what you want once you get there in sha Allah Huhtala. Okay, and number eight.
The best of you are those that bring the greatest benefits to many others. So, a hadith of our Prophet earlier so it was set up
Surah Al Fatiha Mohammad Rasool Allah
will Lavina Mara who as she did, while kufr Johanna, will Boehner pause
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.
Okay, straightforward SallAllahu I use some fine.
Well levena Mara, who are she dead while Kufa now why did I put this I hear one of the most misunderstood abused verses in the Quran. This verse abused verses, and I have another course where I teach
75 of the most abused verses in the Quran, and this will this is definitely one of them. And
this is where the egg gets abused right here.
And those with him our firm with the disbelievers right there, stop there.
The word that's used is actually death from shinda. Should that means to be real?
It's almost as if it's encouraging you. Don't be polite.
Don't smile. Just don't be nice to the kuffar.
Do you see how quickly you can go to Mars if you don't understand this a properly? Yeah.
Ziggy go gone.
That's why you see,
this is one of the misunderstandings that leads to, you know, young people, but even young adults as well. They become really extreme, they become radicalized. And they develop this sort of attitude with Islam that, you know, anybody who isn't with us
is like we are far superior. And you're just look at these people. Could you get almost all this far everywhere, man, there's so much could fall everywhere. Okay, I don't even talk to the Kofa. We've got one cat like that.
So, so I put this area here.
First and foremost, how do you explain this? Because it's pretty clear. As she there I look of Isla here. They were those companions that was with him. SallAllahu ala they were were really strict on these Crowfall. So who is Allah talking about here?
The kofod in this area, was speaking about the group that was constantly persecuting the Prophet alayhi salatu salam threatening and waging war and battle against Muslims.
So battle brothers done in Makkah, they leave Mecca Muslims left Mecca they go to Medina as soon as they arrive Three years later, what happened the Battle of which
battle of offered happens 70 Plus companions are literally slaughtered. But how did the Battle of Auschwitz start? Because the machinery code of Mecca could not stand the fact that we're stronger than them were more powerful than and they were victorious over us. My reputation is on the line our images on our honor and N none and we're gonna go find them in Medina. Now. Some Muslims are just minding their business just sitting there quietly, they get news, they've mobilized they're coming and a process suddenly is like Oh man, what do we do? He didn't say you know what? Let's just make do our Okay guys.
He got us himself together, he mobilized 1000 of the Muslims of Medina. And and and the point here is this.
He had to respond in a way that was firm.
Because this particular group
that this A is making reference to is a constant threat, not to just their livelihood, and their overall well being to their lives just just to be able to stay alive and just be Muslim. So that's where that's when the surah was revealed. And so little flathead was directly linked when Mecca was conquered. Okay, it was directly linked to when make the point is a battle is linked to the surah. Again, because Muslims just wanted to go into Mecca, they just wanted to make perform their Umrah and their hedge, but it wasn't going to come that easy. They were still going to get persecuted. They were still going to be killed. They were still going to be targeted. Just because there were
Does it feel like this area just got revealed in 2022
feels like this A is just as relevant today as it was when it was revealed just because they were Muslim. May Allah give us strength and on protect our brothers and sisters and give them patience, resilience and keep them steadfast
Long I mean, you all know what I'm talking about, from around the world, our brothers and sisters that are being persecuted just because of their faith, being driven out of their homes, their land, their villages, their communities, just because of who they are.
May Allah give them strength? May Allah give them patience, may Allah keep them steadfast Aloma.
rowhammer will be now look at should Darrell kuffaar. So now you know what kuffaar is where wootz referring to. But look what Allah concludes it will rule him out will be in a home and compassionate with one another. So who is this talking about the same group? So what put it all together? If you're being persecuted? Yeah, you've got to be firm, you've got to be you've got to respond. You've got to defend. But when all is said and done,
the catheter that's your neighbor, you don't have to be a * that to that.
To that neighbor, your classmates, your professor, your teacher your calling. That's not what the A is. Because look, throw him out we'll be in a home from amongst them. However, buying a home here means when you're living all together peacefully and in harmony, you are together bein at home, you are literally intertwined with each other, meaning you're living in the same village, the same community, the same street, the same city. What do you have to have?
Be nice to your neighbors. So you have the two opposite messages in the same area to what appears like it's the same audience but it isn't one is an extreme and the other is everyone else. So anybody who says to you now look what Allah says, you know, you got to be real strict to the kofod You gotta be real this in that buddy keep reading. Ruhama obey now.
It's from the sunnah to also to be pleasant and kind and by the way, Allah didn't say to have good etiquettes he said the little hammer Rama what did we say are off mowers in a nutshell you're doing more than you need to you go the extra mile
so you're not ordered to just be nice to the non Muslim you're ordered to if you can and whenever you go the extra mile
show really what Islam is, you know, hotel I'm staying at right you're gonna come down I look like this right. So then coming down
and there was a couple just like a non Muslim couple as soon as I came down to see my ride and just dumped it in there and I could feel it the eyes are like
and they were all what we were all walking towards the exit at the same time.
So I remember this and he said he literally stood back in his like, please, please go ahead.
And this turn into thank you so much. All thank that's, that's lovely a view that sort of thing, right? So go ahead.
See that extra or, like I could have just went and be like, thank you. Okay, and just mind my business and go no, no, no, that's fine. But the extra mercy if you'd call it is when you take a step back is like no no, go ahead. Not go ahead. You miskeen child May Allah guide you go no, no, no, no.
Just go ahead because why
go the extra mile that's what makes you different. That's what makes us believers you go that extra mile you do that extra thing.
I'll tell you one simple thing that you can do all the time and it's shall easy for all of you. You know when you go get a coffee or something at wherever dunkin donuts or what have you I was gonna say Timmies but a stuff that Allah right. Whatever your local coffee shop or whatever you make it a habit once in a while. pay for the car behind you.
Leave that deed between you and Allah, just do it drive away. Don't be like, Okay, I'm paying for the car behind me turn on the camera and let's see what the reaction is okay. And then he's driving and you're slowly exiting and you're looking and you're looking if they're gonna wave or leave it for a low drive away and go, you know, this happened to me one time, or somebody paid for me. You know, we were both going into the drive thru together and it looked like somebody had to make up their mind. So I stopped and I said, Go ahead, go ahead. And she was like,
and she drove it. She paid for me. I never saw her again. She literally drove out gone. On I said Subhanallah man, you know, those are the moments you may never see that person for the rest of your life. But Allah will probably show you that person on the Day of Judgment. Allah will remind you
that the you know, the hire that people did for you. How do you internalize it? How do you accept it? Did you approve? Were you grateful? How were you grateful? You just kept your gratitude to yourself? No, no, Oh Allah, I bought something for somebody else, I did the same thing for someone else in my own way. So find those moments where you can really just do something real simple, real easy, and try to concentrate on the everyday things that people do. So whether it's buying coffee, hold the door open for somebody.
Smile, those little things are really really important to achieve what will come out will be now okay. And number nine, the spiritual lifeline of our iman is the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala so now we're coming towards the end. So these are the verses that I've intentionally chose to kind of steer us towards the end of the verses that every Muslim should be reminded of a no. Yeah, yo, Hola, Dina. ammonoids So little reserved verse number 41 with the quote Allah the Quran cathedra.
All believers always remember Allah often. Here's the thing. Scholars they say,
when you're struggling with your Deen in any way, in any form in any capacity, go back and assess how often do you make the vicar of Allah and that will tell you why you're struggling. So go back to last night's conversation and navigating through that subject.
This will stop this will give you all the gender relation guidance you need.
Your personal development, your heart, how do you keep your heart on the straight path? Fill it with this vichara but Kathira lots of it. So what's an example of that your students? Shout it out to me. Subhan Allah hamdu lillah Allahu Akbar La ilaha illa Allah stuff that Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola, como de la. And even if you don't know the Arabic Hola, forgive me, forgive me out, forgive me.
Forgive me. There is no deity worthy of worship, but you got Hamdulillah
you know, one of the
students who study abroad like myself shall lead and all of us who who've gone abroad
will always say the same thing.
The real blessing of studying abroad was not being in the University of Medina or Mexico. That wasn't a real best that was a blessing. But you know what the real blessing was? The real thing that shifted our lives and brought us to this point was that we got to watch and sit with Orellana who are like no other on this planet. Had a professor
he used to watch him a lot like some sort of creepy guy at the back of their classroom. Right? He's the watch this man. His lip would always
when he wasn't being asked something or what you didn't just
so being the guy that I am, I wanted to spy. So as the days went by, come a little earlier, get closer and closer, because I want to hear what's he doing? And I heard it
changed my whole life. That's not something you learn out of books. You see how Earl Amma and you know the chef who's very well known has his own lecture in the huddle McCann with both has over 5000 students sitting in his classroom at a time in his lectures. And I've never seen anything like this in my life. And that was it. Like that was one of many moments where, yes, when I'm walking or driving alone, if I'm not listening to something
changelings lanes, now you're watching his lane again, turnarounds, hey,
learn to swim.
I promise you. You're not not not me. I'm nobody. Allah promises you in the Prophet alayhi salatu salam promises, your whole life will change. Oh my god, your whole life, your attitude, every moment of your life just calms down.
A tornado will just feel like a cool breeze. You know, you know, metaphorically, like, you'll be in the midst of chaos. And everybody will be like, How are you so calm?
You just buried your son and you're the sailor hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah gave me Allah took him hey, how you doing that? It's because you have this
is one of the things that is missing in the average day to day Muslim by the way.
We don't do a lot of this.
And you know, sometimes it's it is our fault. And sometimes it isn't. I get it. You know, you were consumed.
so much things that pull our brains in different directions. And if it's not that your eyes and your ears is always focused on everything else except that so you have to literally discipline and shift your mindset to concentrate on that. So I get it it's not easy. However,
Allah said with a call to Allah, the Quran Kathira and then a contract was set be who who book or a term what else sila and make us be with him in the morning and in the night. So last point, I'll mention with this, think of vicar like this, okay?
Because I look because like I said, I know it's difficult. The cure is like, bookshelves in your brain. Okay? You have yet and Hadith and all the knowledge of Islam, you've learned, they're all stored in bookshelves. Victor is when you take a book off the shelf and you open it.
So think of it that way. Like I just need to remember, I need to recite something I need to remind myself, so we pull it out of my head. And let me open it, repeat it a little bit. And you'll find your appetite here starts to grow. And this is why our profit early so to sum, all the companions said we would see him sallallahu alayhi wa salam and he would be constantly saying things quietly. This is what he was doing. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never would sit there and just poreless finger Hey, Boss, what's going on? Nothing.
Subhanak in the continental bar, leaving the hole all the doors
which leads me
to the last and final area, the only creation of Allah that whispers directly to your heart.
Let the US whistle feel so during Asimina Genetti oneness. So before I tell you about this
the the kid of Allah
one last point that I want you to remember students, okay, you know, I've, I've been honored to be with you for the last couple of days.
If this is one thing, you can make me feel like I did something for you take this one thing, okay? If everything else was just information or you need to go back to it later, fine. But please remember this one thing so I can walk away and just say Alhamdulillah you know Allah. I really hope I left something with them.
There is a word in the poor end called El Bab comes from the word look born
in Nephi Holcus somewhat you will walk Taylor Layli wanna help? Tinley lil Al Bab right
elbow Bob or lob bone
refers to Roger Lun bachlin solid and somebody who has a sound and clear mind.
So if you want to be someone that is making vicar of Allah
here is the best way to develop that habit.
Get garbage out of your brain
eliminate useless information. Let me just pause because I'm assuming this is being recorded. Okay. Okay, let me just pause for a second
you guys can record and watch all the technical things that happen
I'm gonna be really dramatic about this okay just for the camera
it's not working if I'm laughing
Yeah, so look boy
can you please hear me
Yeah, okay one second maybe they will turn this on
yeah okay okay.
Okay May Allah guide
you know I kind of get like these like with Oh my God
started to like get these like withdrawal symptoms. Now when I get to the end of a course. Because I know that I'm coming towards the finish line.
I didn't know that. I don't know if it's a good habit or not. I start like going to different planets and talking about random things. I remember one time I was teaching marriage and divorce and by the time we got to the last, we were talking about ice cream. And we were talking about all our favorite ice cream and we were still like in there it and the waiting period
and somehow is like Subhan Allah met after this course. A nice ice I snapped my fingers and a nice ice cream would be so and we went on this tangent on ice cream for about 20 minutes
so if that happens to me guys give me an indication say share
you know so I can get back to where I'm supposed to be okay
okay, score one is this better?
okay okay I'm okay
okay, okay go ahead
because you guys can still hear me right
while we're recording that's the thing. So let's just talk about Jin's in the meantime
Do you think it could be connected?
Just suddenly all the mic system just shuts down?
Are there any others with us?
Are all the villa Muna shades
I used to be an exorcist. You know that. Right? I like a full time exorcist for two years. Yeah, I used to take gins out of people for two years full time. Yeah, 100%.
You really want to know why I stopped?
No, because they're all you guys are going to leave? No, all jokes aside, a gin was following me to all of my classes.
And he would know I don't want to say because you guys are gonna leave, or I'll never be invited again.
On a serious note, would come and possess a student in the classroom. So when I started to see the pattern, one day, I was in a Toronto masjid and I saw student calm, relaxed, and I started to do my thing. Then all of a sudden, his whole demeanor changed. And he was like this. And he got evil all from head to toe.
So I stopped the class, and it's a turn off the camera. And everybody was sitting like you. And I said, and I looked at him and I said, Who are you? And then he responded in Arabic. So I said, hello and terminal Jin. So I said, Are you from the Jin says, Yes. And don't stop me from learning.
So I told everybody to leave.
And I left the student one myself and then a few brothers helped me write to restrain so I said, What are you doing here? So look, boy
See, that's how that's how you guys invite me again, if you want to know the rest of this story in sha Allah
I look look, I'll finish this and then I'll finish the story. I seriously don't promise that okay, anyhow, and then I'll finish the story progress inshallah. Inshallah. Okay. Let me just finish this last point, and then I'll give you the story of what kind of can of worms that I open up on. Okay.
Guys, do this.
Lupin. Okay, so you reset your face, because some of you are like, Oh my god.
Look, when we said is to get out useless information out of our hearts out of our minds, you know, like the music, the backbiting the soap operas, the TV, the social media. I'm not saying to stop social media, stop TV, unhook your cable. And that's it. Now, what I'm saying to you is sift out the garbage that comes with that package, sift all of that out,
then, and only then you will accommodate vicar, then it'll have a place to go.
Because if you don't do that, you know what ends up happening with Porter and what ends up happening with vichar. You hear it and you're like, oh, mashallah, that's so good. And then you leave the masjid and it's gone. Got it. So you want this to stay with you, you want it to resonate, and you want it to lead to something else. And I can guarantee you, all of us living in this part of the world where we're always, you know, tugged and pulled in a direction that is designed to just waste your time. You know, you'll watch like a game for four hours. You'll watch like sports, and you'll talk about who's the greatest basketball player and bla bla bla, and you're debating this stuff and
you're like, who cares?
You know when he's just starting like why are we talking about this for like 25 minutes? So when you start like pinpointing those moments in your life you sifted out that's called lagoon
now you become from a lab. Now you become from people who have a clear sound mind so useless information has been cleaned up. Now useful information has a place to resonate. Gotta finally lady does anybody have a question?
It was inserted earlier Imran close towards the end
the area number in a fee Hall customer what it is a number 190 installed at early I'm Ron which is the third chapter verse number 190. Okay, and finally a leather us we so feel so dirty, nasty middle Jannetty oneness. You know why and with this? Because that's what Allah ended with.
Right? 6000 Plus versus the last year Allah left you and me with
was this. Why? Lovely? You wiswe so few. So during us, the one whispers, meaning after all is said and done. You will have to battle him.
The Gin, you will have to continue your battle in life warding off the West was the whisper the temptation of the gin. I'm not saying you're gonna blame all your mistakes on gins. No. What I am saying to you is you'll be on cruise control now in a good place.
But you'll still have to ward off those gents. So your fetcher now went from once in a while. Now it became steady for one month it was on time two months, three months, then all of a sudden that fourth month, you're just went back down missed it for six days straight and you're like what in the world, the whistle, Whistle, whistle dirtiness. The sleep just felt better in the fourth month.
You know, the sleep just got deeper to hear like all men.
So the knots that he's been tying down on my face really got tighter now. I gotta fight him. I gotta fight back. I gotta go back to this again. Remember that the gins and shale teen is the only creation of Allah that allowed that he allowed that when he whispers he goes where? Because right to your heart. Not even angels do that. It is only the gin that goes right up to your heart and just starts tempting you. So even if you don't do the wrong,
your heart's doing it. Like if you're feeling it and you're thinking about it. Like what if and what if, you know, I talk a lot of young people, they're like men, if I wasn't Muslim, I have a couple of piercing I will have that made that tattoo. Like it's almost like Subhanallah if this Islam thing didn't get in the way, then I would have. So that's all from West USA. Making your journey in Islam feel like you're such an outcast. You stick out like a sore thumb. Because you have this thing on your head. And you look different, you act different. You gotta read ingredients on everything you buy. You have to always the disclaimer, could you please tell me on the item, what has alcohol what
doesn't, and you've got to do all this extra homework, this extra talking and end can't just live
because you're warding off this guy. You're warding off the genes, you're keeping that temptation far away as much as possible
amongst jinn and mankind. And so in conclusion, in conclusion, students, I leave you with this parting message that off after all is said and done. Just remember that at the end of the day, Allah subhanho wa Taala still left us on this earth, we are still alive, we are still here. And it is a sign that we all have what it takes to carry the message of the Quran.
You understand students? Like at the end of the day, it's rough. But when Allah says let them return Allah and to Muslim like don't die unless you're Muslim. Allah didn't say except when it's 2022 Will you know I'll make some exceptions? No. Even now, don't leave this world unless you're Muslim. You know, it's amazing to me, Allah didn't say well let him know tuna illa wa and to me No, he said, muesli moon. Remember Muslim is on the outside. Mint is here. So Allah is saying at least bare minimum act and behave like a Muslim before death finds you. So you could be on your phone and just looking at something or you could just be
You like talking to somebody you shouldn't and death is going to come to you now and definitely like, wait a minute you're talking to her. I'll come back when you're in Sajid on Jomar and take your soul then? No rainchecks I'll come back when you're reading for an on your poor an app instead.
Once they find you, it finds you so what does Allah say the bare minimum at least live an act like a Muslim.
And this is our challenge.
Allah said that shaytaan wacana che finally insomnia, dari for
the child teen they're weak.
That strong strongest tool that shaitan has is fear.
See how some of you reacted when I brought up the jinn story? Some of you were like, Oh my God, yes. Right. And then some of you, you reacted in
supine, oh my god. See that reaction? That's where Hollywood now commercialize a really took advantage and the paranormal activity, The Exorcist movie started coming out one afternoon, because why fear breeds money.
And fear also breeds vulnerability. And you're scared of something. If you're not strong enough to ward it off, what ends up happening, you fall right into it, I don't, I don't want the thing to bother me. So whatever. Just go with the flow. So I leave you with this students and a conclude. And that I ask Allah subhana wa Taala that all of these areas that we have been honored and privileged to look at and study to an extent that they uplift us, that they inspire us. And at the end of the day, we ask Allah to just make us better people in a way that he's pleased with. Right? Our Prophet alayhi salat wa salam says everything in this world is cursed except three things. I only men will
open with Victrola wire alamin Omata Lima, except three things the remembrance of Allah is exempted from Allah's curse. Why wamalwa level and the thing that helps you to remember Allah, wa early men Omoto Halima, or the scholar or the student of knowledge. The point that I want to make is at the end of the Hadith he highlighted scholar or student of knowledge why? Because the Prophet Allah Soto, Salah knows that not everybody is going to be a scholar. But everybody can be a student of Islam.
That's where we are.
You know, that's where we are. We're all students of Allah. So we pray that he accepts us that at least Allah sees in our hearts and in our lives that we are putting forth the effort and we are trying to be the best Muslims that we can be in a way that he's pleased with. And I pray that Allah subhana wa tie with our Allah reunites us in genital Theodosian earlier female cardio silicone and the Maliki Moqtada. In a place that is close to him in a place that is honorable, that is dear to him. Allah whom I mean, students I conclude with a short door on that may Allah azza wa jal accept from us, may Allah subhanho wa Taala honor us may Allah subhanaw taala accept our Salawat our Roku
our sujood May Allah azza wa jal accept from us our ADKAR May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept to us our efforts May Allah bring serious sincerity, purity telkwa Tilak quill all of the qualities that we strive for and we hope for and we do our best to implement in our hearts and in our lives, may Allah azza wa jal preserve those qualities in our hearts in our lives, always and forever. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala count us and honor us to leave this world word to leave this world with the last and final words on our tongue of the shahada of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma Amin Subhana wa will be corroboree city RMAc fauna was sat

And I don't want to know what Allah has in store for us. But I hope it is a relationship that one day all of us are sitting in Jannah under a tree. And we're going to talk about this moment we like Yeah, you remember when you taught us about the thicket of Allah? Yeah, I implemented that in my life. Actually. That's how Allah honored me here.
