Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala to manually a colonial Hydra Hunkeler while early he was Herbie he Ultramarine Allahumma eliminare be Malian fauna when found Bhima Island Turner was it now Edelman? Yeah Kareem or Beshara. Actually suddenly were silly Emery Wahoo looked at me Lisanti of Coco Coli from buried brothers and sisters, my fellow Calgarians said Mr. Alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakatu.

00:00:38--> 00:00:55

Of course, as always, I'd like to thank all of you for having me here once again and welcoming me amongst all of you and in your community. And ask Allah subhanho wa Taala will live from my heart I ask Allah azza wa jal to continue to shower his baraka and acceptance in your community Allahumma Amin

00:00:56--> 00:01:30

tonight in sha Allah Huhtala let's get right into it. We're talking about the real you, the real you. Now this is an important topic and a topic which is rarely discussed, at least in this fashion in the way that poor N addresses this issue, how you know who you really are, because human beings when it comes to their etiquettes, when it comes to their behavior, behaviors and the choices that they make in their life, they fall into two main categories. The first category

00:01:31--> 00:02:10

are people that literally wake up, eat, sleep, go to work, go to school, make money, relax, chill out with friends do all of those things. Islam is just sort of lingering in the background, but they are Muslim. When there's a halacha when there's a conference or Jumar, they they're there. Otherwise, it's just life as usual. Then you have the second category of people that are the complete opposite. Everything about them is Islam. Everything from the decisions they make, from the way they think everything about them is Islam, Islam, Islam.

00:02:11--> 00:02:39

The verses that I'd like to share with you this evening in sha Allah seeks to bring at least a nice balance of these two categories of people. And at the same time discovering who you really are as an individual, your real purpose in this world and more so refining and at least perfecting your relationship with Allah. So again, I've chosen the concluding verses of Surah Al Hirschfeld,

00:02:40--> 00:03:21

these set of verses are verses you all know you probably have memorized them and you hear them recited in Salah many many times. And where Allah subhanho wa Taala begins or at least concludes this surah and it tells us Yeah, you have Latina M and it talks Allah well tambura Neff Summa cada metally Hadith what top Allah in hola Hubby, you don't be mad Tara maroon, until the end of the verse. For those of you who still not familiar, these are the verses that end off who Allah who led the La ilaha illa, who Ali Mojave was shahada, two who are rough man who Rahim until the end, you don't want to ask some of my friends about these verses. Now these are friends who don't know Arabic

00:03:21--> 00:03:58

or have never really studied the Quran. But they hear these verses all the time. And I said, What do you think about these verses? They say I love them. What are they talking about? I don't know. But I always hear Allah's names mentioned in those in those particular verses. So I just love them. That was really interesting to me. Because what this told me is that even naturally, whether you like it or not, there's already sort of a foundation of love and connection between you and Allah azza wa jal, it's already there. You're hearing these beautiful verses. You're hearing Quran in general, and you're already in love with it. What is it talking about? I don't know. It's just the eloquence it's

00:03:58--> 00:04:05

just the Arabic it's just the recitation is just beautiful. So listen to how Allah azza wa jal helps you and I discover the real you.

00:04:06--> 00:04:51

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh, you who believe it Tapachula have Taqwa of Allah. Now we've mentioned this before that the word Taqwa itself doesn't mean fear of Allah in and of itself. By definition. It's not talking about fear. Fear is a connotation or it's sort of something that will manifest out of Taqwa Taqwa comes from the word we call your tune, which means to protect yourself from something that's going to harm you. So when you're in your homes and you turn on your security system, what you're doing is you're protecting your family and your home from the evils outside of your home. You're protecting yourself. That's Taqwa. So, Islamically Taqwa is to protect yourself

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

from the punishment of Allah azza wa jal. How do you do that? By following his commands? Do what he says for you to do. Stay away from what he puts

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Have a tutu. Allah azza wa jal says have Taqwa of Allah. Will Tang Gurunath Summa koderma Tilly hard.

00:05:09--> 00:05:26

Here is how one of the ways poor and tells you how to achieve this Taqwa. Now you hear these verses all the time in the Koran, that Allah azza wa jal will say you will have been ammonoid Takala it took Allah it Tapachula hundreds of times and no Quran, Allah is telling you it Tapachula

00:05:27--> 00:05:53

almost every single time Allah is telling you to have Taqwa of him. There is always something different to do. You will Edina mn otaku Allah will call Poland sadita Yeah he will Adina Takala haka to party while atta Mutanda Illa anti Muslim, ALLAH is talking about your speech ALLAH is talking about your life, all these different things now here, Allah azza wa jal is saying well, tongue bow Neff, Sama, pedantically hard.

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

Look at yourself

00:05:57--> 00:06:45

and analyze and assess for a moment. What have you put forth or allocated for tomorrow in this area of London or HUD? Here is not talking about tomorrow meaning Saturday, it's talking about tomorrow meaning yomo piano, Allah azza wa jal is saying to just stop for a moment and look at yourself. Well, Tundle comes from the Word Nevada, Nevada means to stare at something for a really long time. So look in the mirror and stare at yourself for a while and just ask you so if your name is Mohammed, you're mad, you're Fatima wherever you are. And just ask yourself, What are you doing with your life? If you were to meet Allah azza wa jal tomorrow, that's what the AI is teaching you. Stare

00:06:45--> 00:06:56

at your life and stare at yourself as though you're going to die today and meet Allah azza wa jal tomorrow. Are you ready? Some Muslims when I mentioned this, they say to me, Well, look, brother, Muslim,

00:06:57--> 00:07:11

I'm trying. I'm really trying in my life. I'm doing everything that I can. While he let me tell you something. If you are comfortable with the idea of saying that if you die today, if you die tonight,

00:07:12--> 00:07:53

that you're comfortable to say to Allah, Oh Allah, in my 20 or 30 years, or 50 or 60 years of my life, I have done my best. That's one thing. But let's just face it the reality of many, many, many Muslims around the world. That's not the reality you always wish that you could do more. You always know in yourself, I could have done this better I could have made better decisions in my life. So Allah azza wa jal is saying to if you have real tequila in your life, stare at your own knifes look at yourself and keep asking this question. What if tomorrow I'm going to meet him? What if tomorrow have to stand in front of him? What if tomorrow it's gonna happen?

00:07:54--> 00:08:35

Then Allah azza wa jal says what Takala again twice in a year, every time this happens in Quran, it's basically Allah azza wa jal is saying, Look, if you didn't hear me the first time, listen to it again have Taqwa of Allah. If you miss that message, or you missed the command the first time here's the second time this happened in Surah Nisa in the first i uns it Dakota Bakula, the Halacha comin FC Wahida Well, hello, caminhadas soldier or Bethlem in Ramadi Geralyn cathedra when he said, what happened next? What Tapachula again, Allah started off with yet a Jonas, a taco robber, come have Taqwa of your master. Then in the same ayah Allah tells you again. So it's happening here. This is

00:08:35--> 00:09:19

how the Quran deals with stubbornness. Some people are just hard headed. You can tell them the same message 25 times a day. And at the end of the day, you still have to tell them the 26th time and the 27th time and so on. And that's just the way it goes. Sugata Rahman doesn't mention Furby, your OB coma format to get the ban that many times just for no reason. It's because the audience in that sort of a real stubborn people, they're not getting the message. So here Allah azza wa jal is attacking this problem that I know and all of you know many of us we suffer from this, generally speaking, many Muslims suffer from this. So Allah azza wa jal concludes, in Allah hubiera Don't be

00:09:19--> 00:10:00

my turn alone. Allah azza wa jal is fully well aware of what do you do? Now? There's a difference between Tara maroon and Tafara goon, both of them mean actions. Allah didn't say Allah it'll be my tough Harlow in whatever actions you do. Tough out alone is different from Talmud on righteous deeds. Tough I alone are just random actions that you do. You're not thinking about them. You just do it. Time Alone. There's an intention behind it. You thought about it, you prepared yourself and then you do it. So it's not something spontaneous and random that just pops out of nowhere. So that's what Allah azza wa jal is focus in is those words.

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

He has actions that you work hard for, and you put a sincere intention behind. Those are the ones I'm paying attention to. The next idea is amazing to me. It's amazing to me and anybody here who's studying psychology, if we have any psych students that are here, have you studied this subject before? This is for you. Allah azza wa jal continues and he says well at Hakuna kalithea Nussle law for unser home and foster home Hola ecoman Facetune Allah azza wa jal says and don't to be of the people who forgot Allah, because as a result, Allah has caused them to forget themselves. This is the worst punishment you could be in. When you forget Allah, Allah makes you forget who you are,

00:10:49--> 00:10:53

this is the real you are talking about. I want to give you an example of what we're talking about here.

00:10:54--> 00:11:23

In another verse in Surah, Tober Allah azza wa jal says in Allah hushed, Amina meaning and Fusa home What am well a home be Anello whom will Jana? Allah azza wa jal says that he wants to make a transaction with you and I, he wants to make a transaction. Allah azza wa jal is saying to you sell yourself and your wealth to me. And in exchange, what I'm going to do is I'm going to give you Jana,

00:11:24--> 00:12:06

in exchange, I'm going to give you Jana, but I want you to give me yourself and give me all of your wealth. And I will give you what Janna now look at it from a humanistic point of view. Human beings, whenever we do transactions with each other, we usually pay for something and then we get our product immediately. And immediate transaction happens, you pay you give you get your product, even if you don't pay, you still get your product and you say I'll pay you in six months, you set up a payment plan. The point is, is that we want things to be given to us now at this moment. That's the nature of human beings, none of us is going to run away from that. So there's a sense of an

00:12:06--> 00:12:17

impulsive attitude that's attached to that. You see something a new phone new, something just comes up, you just throw it in the cart and you don't think about it. Here Allah azza wa jal is saying to you look,

00:12:19--> 00:12:21

when it comes to my transaction with you,

00:12:22--> 00:13:05

I want you to give me these two things, yourself and your money. And in exchange, I'm not gonna give you gender right now, you know what I'm gonna give it to you. When you're six feet in the ground and dirt is being thrown on your face, then you'll have the agenda. So in the meantime, your payment plan that you set up with Allah is what it's every single choice you're making in your life, all the good deeds that you're doing, all the decisions that you're making, the way you smile, and talk with each other, how you make your money, what you choose to eat, where you choose to go, where you choose to live, how you treat your family, how you treat your friends, these are the payments, that

00:13:05--> 00:13:48

Allah says, give me that now. But in exchange, I'm not going to give you this product that you're paying for. I'll give you that later. And you know, what's amazing about this is Allah Subhana. Allah, Allah is telling you, you just trust me. And I will give you this Jana. And here's the question. That's a high level of trust. You know, people, they always say, I have full trust in Allah. I trust Allah with everything with my life with my soul with everything. Okay, and Hamdulillah, you can appreciate that right? Until what happens until times get rough. So, a typical classic example of this is guy and girl wants to get married. I'm kind of like this marriage, dude.

00:13:48--> 00:14:27

All my examples have to do with men and women for some reason. So, guy and girl wants to get married, they're engaged. The guy says, You know what? She's beautiful. She's the woman of my dream. She says the same thing. He's the Hercules of my life and sha Allah. But then at the end of the day, what do they both both, both of them say to each other, because things are romantic things are beautiful things are calm, no problems. They say, Look, no matter what happens between you and I have full trust in Allah azza wa jal until what? There's some bankruptcy that happens in that relationship. She might request something from him. He might request something from her. There's

00:14:27--> 00:14:51

family politics involved, some trouble comes in what happens, it's your fault. The other reason is your fault. Your family is your dad, it's your mom. Before you know what happened to that hole, my trust in Allah. Allah is in charge of everything. I give everything to Allah, Allah do whatever you want. What happened to that? So this is what Allah azza wa jal is saying. Real trust is really difficult.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

So that's one way of looking at it. But I want you to think about the opposite. Now the reality shaitan on the other hand, he can

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

To you, and says, Hey look, I want to make a transaction with you. Do what I say I'm going to open every ounce of luxury and desire for you in this world. Just do it. Don't worry about payments later. Don't worry about that 2030 years you'll deal with that. Now, that mouse is sitting right beside you in the computer, just click it and it will open and just enjoy it for the moment. Just click it don't think about nothing else, just do it. So for 20 or 30 years, what are you doing? That's what your whole life is. Until you leave this world and you are confronted with Allah. What are you going to tell him? Oh Allah trust in you. You fell into shaitan strap. You know a typical

00:15:46--> 00:16:22

example that you see every single day is you and I Muslims. If you have like the catheter things that okay, this just one life to live. So live it up, do everything you can and enjoy this life because it's just one time you and I know it's not the end for us. It's not the end of the road here. So the brother Masha Allah is sitting there trying to grow this messy, dirty beard she's trying to put on her hijab and all her friends are telling her what's wrong with you. You're so beautiful. You have beautiful hair and you're going to cover it up. You're such a good looking guy. You're so strong, you're so healthy. You're you know, you look so handsome. And now you're going to

00:16:22--> 00:16:32

grow, grow beard and cover all that beauty. What's wrong with you? That's the pressure you have to fight. Why? Because you're hoping to get your exchange with Allah azza wa jal.

00:16:33--> 00:16:41

Then Allah azza wa jal says the same ayah and Surah to Toba for establish Euro b b e como la the bay at timbi.

00:16:42--> 00:17:13

Allah azza wa jal says, Do you feel congratulated that you completed the sale or transaction with Allah azza wa jal on your mobile piano? Your friends are not going to congratulate you. Nobody's going to congratulate you except home, except Allah Soulja, we ask Allah has scheduled to increase us in our patients Allahumma Amin. That's what we're striving for. That's what you're working hard for. So this area is saying to you look, if you forget to Allah,

00:17:15--> 00:17:39

I'm going to make you forget yourself, so you know what your life becomes. You wake up, brush your teeth, go to work. Eight, chill out with friends every weekend. Yo, bro, what are you doing this weekend? Let's just hang out. Let's just do whatever. Play ball do this. Do that restaurants chill out. Die.

00:17:40--> 00:17:44

That's your whole life. You literally live like a zombie.

00:17:45--> 00:17:54

look good. Fix your makeup, do all of that good stuff. Dead. That's how you meet Allah. Why? Because you forgot yourself.

00:17:55--> 00:18:38

Some of us probably have gone for Umrah and Hajj at some point. And we might know Muslims who have gone to hajj and umrah as well. Even notice some of them. After a month or two they come back to their homes. And they're in this Eman hype is Eman. Hi. So they're in the massages are doing everything and slowly what happens slowly extinguishes and dies. They go back to that zombie life all over again. Why? Because you're forgetting Allah. What Muslims do today? Many of them they do they set schedules with Allah. This is my Allah time right now when I'm sitting in a hot bath. That's my Allah time when it's just before I go to sleep, or what happens to me all the time. Che

00:18:38--> 00:18:42

Can you tell me a DUA or an idea that will help you pass my exams?

00:18:44--> 00:19:01

Sheriff, I'm sick. I have a headache. Can you tell me that I have that cures my headache? No problem. You prayed? No, I never pray. But I just watched one that I just romantic. I'll do a prayer later. Is that what Koran is for you? Is that what it's become for you? I can't tell you how many times we will ask you to come in to recite to their wedding. Some of them have done

00:19:02--> 00:19:22

Subhanallah I think it's a blessing to be able to stand in front of the people and recite a book that Sahabas shed their blood for us so we could have I think it's an honor. I sit there and I start reciting the verse. I leave guests who rolls out after the DJ.

00:19:23--> 00:19:27

That's what Koran is something ceremonial, you celebrate it and then you go home.

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

Allah azza wa jal says, You're forgetting the real you.

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

So your heart now is engulfed. It's not breathing no more. You might hear people who say, I can't believe I did that mistake because that's not me. You're right. That's not you. So where's your heart? It's covered with desires. It's covered with backbiting. It's covered with evil. So your real person inside of you is engulf they can breed

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

So you can't come out and people can appreciate who you really are. What did Allah azza wa jal say about these people? Hola, Iike Humann fasea call, these people are inherently corrupt Fassi porn is plural for fisken a fiscal means something that becomes very dirty and rotten over time, something that eventually starts to become moldy and dirty. That's what Allah is saying about you. If you forget him, Allah is going to reduce you to nothing more than a dirty animal. Animals are the ones that just sort of walk around do whatever, that's what your life becomes. And I want you to think about how many of your brothers and sisters you know are like this. How many of them keep hearing

00:20:47--> 00:20:54

yet and Poron total we every single year they're in the messenger in the front rows. And after that they're gone.

00:20:56--> 00:21:02

They're gone. They forgot Allah and they don't realize it. We ask Allah azza wa jal to protect us from this Allahumma Amin.

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

The next verse,

00:21:06--> 00:21:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala Says law yes that we us hub will nourish us hub will Jana of Cebu, Jannetty human failure is soon the people of the fire and the people of Jana, on the Day of Judgment, they're not going to be equal. The people of Jana, these are going to be the true champions, these are going to be the true winners. I think there's a duality in meeting here. So on the one hand, there's an accurate meaning to this. But on the other hand, there's also a dunya meeting as well. When you forget to Allah, it's as if you're tasting a bit of punishment in this world. But if you're a person that remembers Allah, every single day of your life as much as you can, to the best of your ability,

00:21:46--> 00:21:57

it's as if you're tasting a little bit of that bliss, a little bit of that happiness or Jenna in this world. You're tasting a little bit of that happiness. You've you've discovered the real person inside of you.

00:21:58--> 00:22:15

Allah azza wa jal says next. Lo and Santa has a poor Anna Isla Jebel Lara Atia hoo ha Xiang, Mata Saudi unmin hace Attila what till Kill em third will not deliver highly Nursey la Allah whom yet effect karoun.

00:22:17--> 00:22:30

Every time I read this, I don't know what to do with it. I don't even know how to translate it. I don't even know how to talk about this idea. I don't know how to explain it properly. This idea is so profound to me.

00:22:31--> 00:23:07

Allah azza wa jal says, Look, if we took this Koran and we placed it on a mountain, you'd see the mountain do two things. It will have horseshoe and it will become matassa. Darren, how from the fear of Allah azza wa jal just pause for a moment. Musa alayhis salam in Sudan out of s Allah paella be at any ungodly Lake. He says, Oh Allah show me I want to see who you are. Allah azza wa jal says kala Lanta, Ronnie, you're not going to be able to see me. Wala Kenan votary el Jebel. Look up to the mountain say that mountain over there. Go look at that mountain.

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

For any Sakara McKenna who for sulfa Torani. If they can uphold its position and it stays where it is. You're gonna see me. Fela Mata JELA Julio Jabel gyla Who duck Kawahara Musa Sarika when Allah azza wa jal showed his glory his to gently to this mountain. You showed his glory his to gently to this mountain. What happened to the mountain? It exploded.

00:23:35--> 00:23:43

What happened to Musa alayhis salam Well, Hora Musa sorry call Musa collapsed and he fainted.

00:23:44--> 00:24:27

That's what happened when Allah showed his glory to that mountain. Here Allah is showing the quarter en to this mountain and he's saying, Look, this mountain. Two things happened to it. Number one, it had horse your horse Sure, by definition, it means to soften the heart. Now what that in what that interprets or how that translate is you know how people say I want to have her short in Salah. What you're saying is that you literally want to feel numb out of the fear of Allah. You literally soften your heart to such a point where you start trembling in front of Allah azza wa jal. Can you imagine how who would look? If we really had true who short? Can you imagine how your Salah would look? Why?

00:24:28--> 00:24:33

Because it's just you and him. subhanho wa Taala alone. We just prayed Salah Tala Aisha

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

we just prayed Salah Malaysia. It's just me and him.

00:24:40--> 00:24:57

You know, I was telling Szekler Viet, I didn't want to leave the salah. And one of the reasons why I always try to do that. But alhamdulillah if I'm given the opportunity to the best of my ability, trusted Allah and I'll just do my best at it with some of the some of the reasons one of the reasons why I chickened out a lot.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

I don't want to be responsive

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

For everyone behind me, Allah is going to ask me about all of your Salah you just pray behind me, I have a part of responsibility of what you did of your Salah as well. If I'm sitting there and I'm thinking about how the Raptors are getting creamed tonight, there's a big problem. Okay? Which by the way, they actually are, they're down like 41 points anyhow.

00:25:23--> 00:25:54

So the point is, is that I'm standing there, I can't think about those things. I have to keep battling with it. Why? Because I'm your Imam at that moment. I have to be responsible for all of you. Now, how does this translate with the idea we're talking about? Allah azza wa jal says, Look, this mountain had holes, sure. It softened itself and became numb. Why? Because Quran came on it. Then as a result, it became Moto sadirah. It collapsed and it turned into dust.

00:25:55--> 00:25:59

That's what happened to a mountain when poor and was given to it.

00:26:00--> 00:26:01

What happened to you?

00:26:02--> 00:26:04

How come when you have put it in

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

your heart, nothing.

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

There's no movement

00:26:12--> 00:26:13

doesn't feel anything.

00:26:14--> 00:26:35

Allah gave you Quran and put it in your heart that you can memorize it. You can listen to it. You can study it, you can read it. Every single day of your life, you're getting the same thing that caused a mountain to crumble and shatter into dust. What does that say about your heart now?

00:26:37--> 00:26:52

What does that say about the hardness in there the stiffness in your own heart? How come all of these lectures and all of these jalapenos and all of these Salawat that you're praying? How come there's no movement? Nothing's happening.

00:26:53--> 00:27:13

I can't answer this question for you. By the way. This is a question you have to ask yourself. Anybody who listens to this you have to ask yourself this question every single day. Because one of those days could be the last day where tomorrow you meet Allah.

00:27:14--> 00:28:03

So Allah azza wa jal says, minha Shia to learn from his from the fear of Allah, what till kill and third will not deliberately nasty Allah Allah whom yet effect Quran. These are the examples or parables that we have shown all of mankind, that in hope perhaps in sha Allah, they will think you notice that the verse is saying leanness people, the verses are talking to the people of Medina. These people already believe in Quran and Sunnah. So why didn't Allah just call them Muslim or Mortman? Now I want you to think of yourself as people of Medina for a moment. All of us here we believe in Quran and Sunnah. So the eight are talking to you and the I yet are saying, You people,

00:28:03--> 00:28:29

Allah is not calling you by your title as a man or Muslim. That's because if you forget Allah and you forget yourself, you're not even worthy of having this title of Moltmann you're not worthy of it. Allah called the people of Medina. If you fall into this state, you just have another person, just a zombie moving around, just live life die. It's all it comes down to.

00:28:30--> 00:29:19

So here we are, we're talking about the consequences of those who forget Allah. So what do you think so little hash does at the end? Something no surah in the Quran does Surah till hasher is unique? Because it has the most names and attributes of Allah mentioned in one surah. So here you are, you forget to Allah. So in the same Surah, Allah is telling you the most about him Subhan Allah, Allah is telling you all of as many names and attributes you need to know about him. So listen to what Allah azza wa jal says, who Allah who led the La ilaha illa. Who it is him Allah azza wa jal, there is no deity worthy of worship, but him subhanahu wa taala. Here's a couple attributes to think about

00:29:19--> 00:29:30

that Allah wants to give you. Number one, I Lehmann laby, was Shahada. He has complete knowledge of the scene and the unseen.

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

This scene seen and the unseen. So on the outside Allah sees you, Allah sees what you're doing. But Allah azza wa jal also sees the unseen what's in your heart. The real you. You can't hide from it. The end of the day. If you hate praying salah but you're just doing the real you just hates it. You can't wait for the Imam to finish his surah I just finished the Salah. So you just get

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

up and just relax and chill out with the boys or whatever. Allah says, you see that attitude I know exactly what's going on inside of you. So you better watch out. Hola Rahman Rahim. He is the ultimate Merciful One. Subhan Allah. Here we are. It's almost as if we're being threatened to a certain degree. Then Allah azza wa jal heels that that threat or that feeling and says, Look, I am at still at the end of the day or Rahman Rahim. I'm still the ultimate worst evil one. So at the end of the day, no matter how pathetic you think you are, no matter how much sins you've done in your life, at the end of the day, listen, understand one thing about me the first area of these

00:30:40--> 00:31:03

concluding verses of Allah telling us about himself, the first thing he says to you look, I am a Rahman Rahim. That's what he leaves you with. Always remember I'm merciful. I'm here for you. In surah, till 14 Allah azza wa jal after describing the three major crimes of Islam, which is what shirk which is murder and Zina, after this Allah azza wa jal says

00:31:04--> 00:31:49

it Lurman turbo Ermanno Camila Ramadan Solly halfa all acre Ubuntu long see team has network can Allah hoo hoo photo Rahima so Allah azza wa jal says except for the one who does who believes who does righteous deeds, and as a result they live the life of Allah azza wa jal will not only forgive them, but he will take all of their sins and mistakes and transform them into good deeds. How did the ayah and Allah didn't say Wallah who foretold Rahim? Allah azza wa jal says, What can Allah Who Who Fuhrer Rahim past tense? Why is Allah saying past tense here? Why not the presence? Because imagine when you're in sin, and you're doing the sin for 1020 years of your life, you're just

00:31:49--> 00:32:17

sitting all the time. For some people, they lose this hope they lose this connection with Allah. And they say that convinced themselves well, look, I haven't prayed in 20 years. What's the point of me starting now? Why should I do that? Now? This is why Allah says, Look, when you were sitting, when you were watching those haram things, when you were talking to that guy you shouldn't have been talking to

00:32:18--> 00:32:56

I was always there ready to forgive you. If you were just going to turn your life. I was always there. You're the one that lost sight of me. I never lost sight of you. That's why Allah says what can I was always forgiving and merciful. It's your fault that you thought I wasn't gonna forgive you Subhan Allah, you never lose hope in Allah azza wa jal. You just can't. If you lose hope and Allah, there's something seriously and spiritually wrong with you. There's something there's there's a kind of sickness in your heart for you to think that there's no way that Allah can help us.

00:32:58--> 00:33:40

considering having said that, what's happening in the world today in the Muslim world, this phrase that Allah is not helping you, or this is a punishment and this, don't get into that stuff. We don't even talk about it don't even get into that. Well, this is why this is happening to these people. Because as a result, they didn't follow this. They didn't follow a b and c you don't know that. So don't even talk about it. Just know one thing in Allahu Allah who are Lehmann Hakim, Allah azza wa jal has complete knowledge and complete wisdom. He has knowledge and he knows what he's doing. So don't question him. This is part of his plan. These people are not dying in vain. Their lives aren't

00:33:40--> 00:34:00

just being thrown away. This was Allah subhanho wa taala. His plan, it's being executed at this moment. Then the next area. The second last verse, Allah azza wa jal tells you again, who Allah who led the La ilaha illa. Who is him Allah azza wa jal none is worthy of worship but him

00:34:01--> 00:34:55

and many cool could do Salam will mock me no more. Hey mineralizes Will Jabbar will Mata Kabir? Subhana? Allah here Amma you should recall, Allah azza wa jal says, He is a Melek the king we are in Allah's kingdom, planet Earth, and he is our king. He is also a produce and produce. He is the source of purification. At the end of the day, no matter how hard you struggle and strive with your heart. At the end of the day, only Allah can purify you. Only Allah can cleanse your heart. So no matter what you do, no matter how much therapy you go to, no matter how much you go to the Imam and say, Oh Imam do Rukia on me and Cleanse my heart. Something's not right. So I'm going to work. If

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

you don't remember ALLAH, it's not going to work. This is one of the thing

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

Next, we're going to highlight tomorrow at the course, we're going to talk a little bit about the traps of the shaytaan. The psychology behind these traps, we're not just going to list them to you and say here this is one trap. This is to watch out have Taqwa read Quran, Salam aleykum. We're going to talk about a little bit of the psychology of how these traps work and why they're there. You know, shaytaan is very patient, very, very patient.

00:35:24--> 00:35:36

He will take his time with you. Because Allah gave them very, very long lives, hundreds of years they can live, so they have all the time in the world, to take their time and get you off track.

00:35:38--> 00:35:50

So they're very, they're very patient. They're very skillful in the way they think. Based on the evidence that we have Shaitan puts a lot of thought in his plan doesn't just spontaneously says okay, there's no slack here. Let me go get him.

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

A May Allah azza wa jal protect me say I mean.

00:35:56--> 00:36:22

The point is, a lot of thought is put into it. So Allah azza wa jal says he is a good dose. He's the one that's going to purify us. He is also a Salam will mock me no more Haman. He is the source of peace. He is the source of Eman and he's the one that's watching every single thing that you do, Aziz will, Jabbar will motor capital, he is also the source of authority. He is also al Jabbar.

00:36:23--> 00:36:26

Al Jabbar comes from the word Jeb Arun.

00:36:27--> 00:36:56

Jeb erode means to take a bone and break it in half. And then try to force it back together. So imagine if you have like a nice glass vase or something and you break it and you try to piece those, those all those little pieces back together in its original form. That's what Jabatan or Jabatan is. So it's basically Allah says, I have the power to put you in your place, whether you like it or not, if I wanted to, I could just transform you and change you at this very moment.

00:36:58--> 00:37:09

Then Allah azza wa jal concludes Subhan Allah He I'm Matthew Sri Khun, Allah azza wa jal Praise be to Allah he's far away from the allegations of the machete coin.

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

Final aka

00:37:12--> 00:37:41

this final a Subhan Allah itself is profound. I really want all of you to pay attention to how Allah concludes the surah because remember, we're talking about discovering the real you. So Allah azza wa jal says who will Harnack Allah is the Creator. Albury will Musa Albury, he is the initiator and he is also a Musa where he's the fashioner. So you look in the mirror

00:37:42--> 00:38:27

and you see all these freckles, all these massive birthmarks, a mole here. Teeth is not straight noses, all twisted eyebrows looks like a downhill skiing sort of thing. It's doing your gear getting bald, getting to hair, you're not enough. Here's something. Allah says, Look, I am animals. So when I fashioned you that way, we're not talking about somebody who needs like medical attention. If there's a scar or some sort of problem, we're not talking about those. We're talking about, just naturally who you are. Allah azza wa jal, the fact that his act one of his attributes is he is the fashioner. Allah azza wa jal takes pride in how he created you. Otherwise, we this particular

00:38:27--> 00:39:08

attribute wouldn't be singled out in Quran. So an example of this is imagine you build a nice invention or a robot or you mold something out of clay. And it looks so beautiful that all the people they come in they admire this, like my goodness, look at the detail on this thing. Look at the craftsmanship behind it. What are you the owner, the one who designed and created this product? What are you going to tell people? Well, I did it, it's me. hamdulillah I'm the one who did it. You know, you take pride in this product. You take pride in it. It's the same idea Allah azza wa jal fashion do with that nose fashion, do with those freckles, fashion do with the way your eyes are and

00:39:08--> 00:39:44

so on. So Allah is saying to you be content. Be careful. Be careful about this, because all of this is going to cause you to forget him. All of this is going to cause you to forget him. Then the a a continues law who a smart listener to him, belongs all of the most beautiful names and attributes. You said the hula hoop math is somewhat you will have the will who allows his will Hakeem everything in the heavens and in the earth is making to speak to Allah azza wa jal paws.

00:39:45--> 00:40:00

How did the sort of start sub Buhari Lahemaa F is similar to Allah? Allah commanded everybody to make to speak to him. This commandment Allah said, I want you to make this B and we all know what test B is. Test B

00:40:00--> 00:40:22

He literally means to praise Allah by raising his honor and authority and status in your life. So when you say Allahu Akbar Allah, Allah illallah, what you're doing is you're raising that authority that honor of Allah azza wa jal in your life, you always associate this power and this authority to him.

00:40:23--> 00:40:33

At the end of the Surah, Allah use the present tense, you said, Behold, our home office somewhat you will own everything in the heavens and the earth is making tests be to Allah.

00:40:35--> 00:40:46

The animals, the insects, the trees, the birds, the sun, the moon, the stars, all of this is making to speak to Allah.

00:40:47--> 00:40:55

All of it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the croaking of a frog is it's test B.

00:40:57--> 00:40:58

So what happened to you?

00:41:00--> 00:41:02

How come

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

all of this is doing test B?

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

and not you?

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

How come you can get the test out the way you want it?

00:41:13--> 00:41:16

How come your heart is struggling to do that?

00:41:17--> 00:41:23

What is holding you back? What's holding the real person inside of you?

00:41:24--> 00:41:27

Why is it that your conscience your real conscious can't breathe.

00:41:28--> 00:41:30

You have to stop for a moment.

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

And look at yourself and look at your life.

00:41:36--> 00:41:53

Look at what you listen to in your spare time. Look at what you speak about in your spare time. Look at the companions that you have in the friends. Look at the people that you spend the most time with. Look at the things that you preoccupy yourself when nobody is around.

00:41:55--> 00:41:59

And then you'll know the answer. You'll be able to answer this question when you're alone.

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

When you are alone, you can help discover the real view. You need some alone time with just you and Allah.

00:42:09--> 00:42:33

If you don't have alone time with Allah, at least a small portion. You know when I say this, here I am talking to you about having some alone time with Allah. Imagine if a companion heard what I just said What'd he do to me? Five minutes of Allah time. Are you kidding? Come here. If I were one of them, hottub saw me and heard what I just said Ya rasool Allah, can I have most less neck right now?

00:42:35--> 00:43:03

Five minutes of your day? Are you kidding me? Is that what it came down to? That you have to have a lot of time scheduled into your day? What would a companion do? What would the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam do for you heard what I just said? And if he saw the state of what we were living with, we have a lot of time. This is a new concept, but it's needed. Don't get me wrong, we need that. Got to start from something from somewhere. Assess something in your life.

00:43:05--> 00:43:58

And then Allah concludes, will who will Aziz will Hakeem Allah azza wa jal has full authority. Listen to the attribute, Hakeem, he is also the most wise, at the end of the day, no matter what is happening when all is said and done. Allah azza wa jal says, Look, I am in control. And the state that you're in, I know what I'm doing. I just want you to do one thing. And that is keep remembering me. Tomorrow's courses about europea. Sahara Sibella is an evil eye. It's about spirit possession of Surah or a Satoru and it's also about Rukia. So we're going to talk about a number of different things. I don't want any of you to think that this topic is relevant to a particular group of

00:43:58--> 00:44:06

people, or Hamdulillah. I don't have no genes with me. So I'm all good. I don't need to attend the course. Really come to my course. And I'll show you where your Genesis

00:44:07--> 00:44:09

Oh, sorry, where your Genesis

00:44:13--> 00:44:57

I'll show you where he is. This topic is even your children don't think I'm not going to scare them off or anything. It's not going to be one of those topics. We're simply going to understand the psychology or the implications behind these topics. Because there's a lot of mumbo jumbo people talk about associated with the jinn world, a lot of things you think they can do, but they really can't do. And at the end of the day, brothers and sisters, let me tell you at the end of the day, you have two things that no Jin ever created, will ever surpass. They have it as well but they will never surpass you that human being. You have two things that will always make you stronger than the jinn.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

What are those two things

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

If you better attend my class, I'm not going to tell you if

00:45:04--> 00:45:47

you attend my class and then you will know what those two things are. So having said that, brothers and sisters, I'd like to conclude Bismillah Hytera, Isla and Wallahi. Usually I like to summarize some of the things that I mentioned. I'm not going to do that. But I'm simply going to pray and make dua to Allah, for myself and for all of you, Allah, He this community, I've said this before, and I will say it again, my heart is attached to all of you. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to accept all of you and love all of you. And except the fighting chance that you have in this world, you just have one chance to make this right. We have one chance to do this right. And after we leave

00:45:47--> 00:46:26

here and all that dirt is thrown in our face, we don't want to be of those that Sailability only Allah Ali Ahmed al Saleh and FEMA taught. We don't want to be those peoples that oh my Master, send me back just for a little bit. Lolly Armello solace, I can just do a couple righteous deeds I can do just a few more things that I missed out in this world. We ask Allah azza wa jal to give us the strength and the email that we can put 100% As much as we can, as best as we can say, I mean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to increase this in knowledge. I mean, may Allah azza wa jal continue to increase this in your class and Taqwa Allah whom I mean, may Allah azza wa jal protect

00:46:26--> 00:47:06

our young people, our young children, our sons and our daughters, our husbands and our wives, may Allah azza wa jal continue to preserve and protect them in this world. I mean, may Allah azza wa jal protect our mothers and our fathers Allah here in Houma, Amma, those who are still with us and those who have passed on and return to Allah azza wa jal May Allah azza wa jal grant our mothers and fathers genital Ferdowsi Allah, Allah Who mean May Allah azza wa jal protect and give Nasir an aid and assistance to our brothers and sisters throughout the Muslim world. May Allah azza wa jal give them strength. May Allah azza wa jal give them strength may Allah azza wa jal give them strength may

00:47:06--> 00:47:41

Allah azza wa jal give them strength Allah whom I mean, Allah, Allah, I can't imagine what it would feel like and I'm sure all of us we share the same thoughts, what it would feel like living in those parts of the world, going through what those people go through. May Allah azza wa jal give them strength and may Allah azza wa jal give us the strength at least in our Torah in our wealth, at least we can help them in whatever way that we can send our money. Send our dua do as much as you can and help these people may Allah azza wa jal give us that string, Allah whom I mean, so these are the words that I conclude with May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you all, what are through their

00:47:41--> 00:47:44

awareness and in hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen
