Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:29--> 00:01:06

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa early he was Herbie here to marry him. Allahumma eliminare be Marian foreigner. When found RB ma lm Tina was it now in mania Kareem rubbish. surgery was Sibley Emery wahoo Europa determinedly, Sania coho holy sama, borrowed Trinidad, before I even begin to introduce my topic to all of you. I just want to say that from yesterday until now,

00:01:07--> 00:01:42

this has been an absolute thrilling and wonderful experience to be with all of you here. And I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to at least allow us to continue to build a strong relationship with each other. And Allah I ask Allah azza wa jal to not to not have this the only chance and the only time we get a chance to meet one another, but in the future, because the law atalla we have many, many, many more opportunities to continue to see each other to benefit from one another, and at least to reunite for the sake of Allah. So adyen

00:01:43--> 00:01:48

so my topic for you today is titled the world today.

00:01:49--> 00:02:13

I don't think I have to explain to you exactly what this topic is. Just think about the the topic itself, the title, what the world looks like, in your eyes today, what you're hearing on the news, or what you're seeing with your own eyes. I just been told that this morning, there was a 6.0 earthquake that happened in Los Angeles,

00:02:14--> 00:03:04

things are changing. The weather is changing. There's more catastrophes, and there's more natural disasters happening all over the world. I can tell you for at least for us, in Toronto, and Canada, we have been having some of the worst winters that we've ever had in our history. And then at the same time, we're having some of the worst summers we've ever had in our history. It's just going into all different extremes. And then you look around the world, they have the same problem and the same dilemma, tornadoes, earthquakes, mudslides, planes falling out from the sky, all of these different things are taking place. Then you if you go aside and you look at governance and politics,

00:03:04--> 00:03:25

everything is going in a completely different direction. That's the world today. And I don't even have to mention to you within the Muslim culture, all of the problems that are happening and occurring and are being introduced within our own Muslim communities. So the question really, that I want to address today

00:03:26--> 00:04:17

is where do you and I stand when all of this is happening around you? There is one verse in Porter en sorta that Hajj, Allah azza wa jal sets the tone of how you look at things that happen in the world. one verse, Allah sets the tone. He says, Yeah, a yohannes all mankind, Allah is not talking to just you and I allow us talking to everybody, every single human being on the face of this earth. Believe me methadone for stemmy Ola. I'm constantly showing you examples and events unfolding in front of your eyes. You know what a lot told you to do with them. istemi arola is stemming from the word esteem. And it doesn't mean just to pay attention, but it means to pay keen attention. And a

00:04:17--> 00:04:52

car accident doesn't just happen for no reason. The tornado doesn't just come about for no reason. These problems that we experience in our own and Philistine and Syria and boredom, and all of these things. They're not just happening for any reason. Allah azza wa jal is saying, pay keen attention and watch out. Be careful. Because the only thing that's going to help you understand why these things are happening is going to be your devotion and your commitment to your religion.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

People feel alone in this world, when they forget that Allah azza wa jal is with

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

them, you feel helpless, and you feel that there is nothing in this world that could solve your problems when you don't have a lot, so a gel in your life. So Allah azza wa jal, the central message of Quran is always to keep coming back to Allah. Why? Because there's something greater waiting for you. In the meantime, keep your eyes open, keep your hearts thinking. So I want to address some of the problems that we have, that I think pertain to an individual as well as a family and community level. And I also want to talk about why these issues are happening. And what you can do in sha Allah tala to at least accept them or embrace them the best way that we can. I want to start off and

00:05:46--> 00:06:34

speak to all the young kids that are here, all the youth that are here sitting today, I have a special message just for you and you alone. And the point that I want to focus is to really talk about your identity as a Muslim. You know, the youth today. It's very difficult for them to feel proud of being Muslim. You'll find like kids today, we have this in North America all the time. I'm sure you guys have the same thing. You'll have some kids, Muslim kids that are probably walking on the street, and they have friends that will have like tattoos or pierced earrings or whatever. They'll have like 45 earrings, and the youth will say your Muslim kid will say, Man, if I wasn't

00:06:34--> 00:06:55

Muslim, I probably do the same thing. But unfortunately, I end up being Muslim today. It's almost your feeling that you're giving yourself this kind of guilt trip because Allah saved you from something. I would be listening to this guy I'd be listening to this song, but I'm Muslim, so I can't really do anything about it.

00:06:56--> 00:07:00

For the youth, Allah azza wa jal said to you

more food. Rahimi, listen to what Allah azza wa jal told you guys, this is for all of us but especially for the youngsters. Allah azza wa jal says in Allah Xena Verily, by no means indeed, your master said to you, Rob buena, long semester calm. Your master said that the true believers, they say and they adhere to the message, the Shahada of La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, this is part one of who you are, you're Muslim, whether you like it or not, you're a Muslim and part one of your identity is you proclaim this with your tongue, it's a statement, but that's not enough. Allah said through Mr. Comma, now you have to live the life. You can't just say you're Muslim anymore and

00:08:53--> 00:09:16

not wear hijab and not pray, is and a lot of people they say this Islam is in my heart. That's not enough. It's not enough for you to be Muslim. Just in the heart. Allah azza wa jal says, I want you to start acting looking and behaving and living like one. So Mr. Harmon is the common comes from the word karma, which means to wake up,

00:09:17--> 00:10:00

wake up, stand up. So Allah azza wa jal has said when you get parts one of your Shahada, here's part two, now you got to start living that life. So what's gonna happen when you do that? To xs zolani hemo lamella iica. Look at this reward for all of you, all of you, are the ones that have already finished part one and part two of this verse. So look what Allah azza wa jal said to you, angels will come down and descend upon you. Allah didn't say one Angel. He didn't say to angels, Allah set up plethora, a whole army of angels will come down to you, you know what's happening. This is the scene that's taking place.

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

When somebody is dying, haven't you ever seen some of the adults? I'm sure you've probably witnessed this, that when you're sitting with somebody who's dying, don't use notice that there's a point where they freeze and they stare in one direction. You know what they're seeing. They're seeing something that you can't see. They're seeing a bunch of angels coming to them. They're going to die No. And Allah azza wa jal says tetanus Seto la himolla Mara ek, what are these angels doing? They're saying to this person when they're just about to die a lot a half wall attacks. No, don't be afraid and don't be said well up Shubin. Jenna.

00:10:38--> 00:11:18

Congratulations, you got paradise. You know why? Because when your friend had tattoos when he was blasting his music when he was going to Carnival, what were you doing? You went home? You stayed away from it. You said it was a Billahi min. Ash shaytani. Raji, you kept fighting and you didn't give up. A sister asked about her children yesterday. And she's saying like, I don't know what else to do. The only thing we can say to you is what Allah told you guys to do. Allah azza wa jal told us don't give up. Congratulations, you did it. You came to the conference. You sacrifice the weekend for Allah, you did it. So don't be afraid. And don't be sad. What's this person dying? Afraid of?

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

He's afraid You know why?

00:11:22--> 00:12:02

Because he doesn't know where he's going to end up when he dies. Is he going to go to the agenda? Or is he going to go to a less punishment in the fire? He doesn't know. So he's afraid. But then he's also sad. What is he said about? Because he's going to leave his family behind. They're going to be left with no mother or no daughter or no child or no father or no this or know that. They're going to be leaving them behind. But what did the angels say? Don't worry, it's okay. Congratulations, you did it. Go into Jenna allottee. Continue to argue and it's the same gender you were promised about. You kept hearing it in the hot beds. In the lectures. It's the same gender. It's here you have it.

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

Now, children,

00:12:05--> 00:12:41

children. The next verse is extremely important. Because the next verse is going to start talking about the friends you choose. 99% 99% in my own humble opinion, white children go straight today. It's because of the company that they have. It doesn't matter how pious you are, it doesn't matter how much you are devoted to Islam. If these children choose bad friends, they're gonna have somebody they're gonna have a second voice always telling them.

00:12:42--> 00:13:23

Listen, bro, who cares what your mom says, Just take it off. You know, just just shave your beard. Just stop praying, who cares? They're not gonna be here watching him 24 hours a day. He'll tell the sister your daughter, you look like my grandmother in your hijab. Just take it off. It's okay. Your parents are not here to see you. That's the voice that's coming in. So parents big pay keen attention to one very important thing. If your children are not talking to you about their problems about their feelings, then guess what? They're doing it with somebody else. They're going to tell somebody else how they feel. And you know what that somebody else is gonna say? It's okay don't

00:13:23--> 00:13:59

worry about what they have to say. It's okay your God is forgiving. Just keep living. Let's go Let's go party let's do whatever we want. So Allah so Allah just said next nano Oh, Leah Oh come Phil higher to dunya orfila Hara, these angels are saying to you, we were your true guardians and your friends in this world. While you were busy trying to hold on to your religion, we the angels will battling off all of the child theme that kept trying to come to you and steer you in the wrong direction. No, Leo COVID hired to dounia waffle Arthur, we're also going to be your friends in the author.

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

I mentioned in my head

00:14:03--> 00:14:48

that one of the greatest blessings that we have is companionship, it's to be together. One of the greatest blessings in Paradise is people. There's not gonna be one person in general, who's going to be alone. Every single human being who is in Paradise is going to have companionship, and here you probably might thinking well, but then we'll say I never got married. I don't have a spouse. I don't have anybody in my life and you die in this state. Guess what Eliza gel is gonna do for you. Allah is gonna give you and create company from you directly out of Jenna. So you're never gonna be alone. So Allah azza wa jal is saying that these angels they were here and they weren't only yet to you.

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

Oh, Leah from the word honey. We know what really is. You know, when you get married, you need a Willie to get married. It's your guardian. It's the person that looks out for you when he or we lay. It means that this person is looking

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

Not for your best interest. They're there to help you to guide you and to give you good advice. So these children, when you choose friends, choose a friend. That is called Sadiq Khan. There are several names in poor and the described friendship. One of them is Sadiq Khan. Sadiq Khan means the true friend, it comes from the word said the mean, which means to be truthful, this is the true friend, this is the friend that when you fall down, they don't say okay, so I'm gonna leave you alone. They're gonna be right there beside you and help you get up. The true friend is, if your mom said to you to wear your hijab, that true, even non Muslim friend is gonna say to you, bro, listen

00:15:44--> 00:15:56

to your parents. It's your mom telling you do something. Don't just, you know, don't just live this kind of double standard life with her. That's what a true friend is. So ask yourself kids.

00:15:57--> 00:16:41

Do you have a deity in your life? Do you have a true friend in your life? This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that a person is going to follow the path of who of their friend. Whatever your friends do, you're gonna do the same thing. It's inevitable you can get away from it, it's going to literally be impossible for you not to have the same things filter off on you. Otherwise, you're just gonna live leave them alone, you're just gonna get rid of them, take them out of the picture. So Allah says nothing to do or can feel hired to do near waffle after a while a comfy hamata stay and foster kumala comfy her matadero in the agenda, you're gonna get two

00:16:41--> 00:17:22

main blessings. Listen to this, brothers and sisters will love you this part of the verse changed my whole life a lot. So I just said, in Gen nine, you're going to get everything that you desired Ford in this world. Now you see us human beings. If you ask a child, what's the most what's the one thing that they love the most a child will say to you, you know, I want ice cream and I want toys. That's the most important thing for that child at that point of its life. As you grow older, the teenager will say, you know a new car, lots of money. Good job. As you grow older, we as adults, we will say probably stability and security in our life. We'll start thinking about college and the future of

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

our children. We want to leave that kind of legacy behind. So there's one commonality that we all share the same desire that's called HDR.

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

But then Allah says welcome fee hammer to Darwin.

00:17:36--> 00:17:43

You're also going to get the one thing that you personally asked for. I can't tell you what this is.

00:17:44--> 00:18:04

Every single one of us sitting here There has to be something inside of your heart that you want from Allah that no one else shares but you I'll tell you something very personal okay. There is one thing for me that I really would want a lot so Joel to share.

00:18:05--> 00:18:57

That in sha Allah when I meet him and inshallah life I enter his genda by His mercy, I will ask Allah azza wa jal insha Allah Allah, share with me the secrets of the holder n. O Allah you said Alif Lam Meem youself ah ha you said yes seen or alone? What does it really mean? These are secrets of ora, even till today. There are dozens of opinions what these letters are actually talking about. Nobody really knows a lot. Tell me what they mean. Oh Allah, you took one surah in the Quran surah Toba out of 114 Sutras, you took one surah and you didn't put Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem in front of it. Oh Allah, why did you do that? Those are the things that I would ask a lot. So that are personal

00:18:57--> 00:19:08

to me. So Allah says you're going to get the thing that you all share with each other the commonality that you have, but you're also going to receive the one personal thing that you want from Allah. So everybody,

00:19:09--> 00:19:49

ask yourself, what's the one personal thing that you would want from Allah subhanho wa Taala. I can tell it to you, no one can teach this to you. This has something that you're gonna have to think about. And you're gonna have to try to discover in your life. So children, this is my message to you. It's time for you to be proud of who you are. And notice the realities of what's happening to people who are not you who are not believers, people who are falling into all of these problems and depressions and things like that in their life. They're going through all of this identity crisis in their life. They don't know who they are. They don't know where they're going. They don't have any

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

vision and goal in their life. It starts off by just being proud and saying, Uh hum de la la made me Muslim. We ask Allah azza wa jal to put that pride and

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

Love of our identity in our hearts and especially in the hearts of our children say I mean, law whom I mean, next. My next message in sha Allah

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

is actually a story.

00:20:13--> 00:20:17

And then I'm going to conclude this part of the discussion for the kids.

00:20:18--> 00:20:58

If you look at kids today, at 13, and 14 years old, what do they usually do? pretty much nothing. There's very few children that are very active, and thinking maturely about life at that year, in those years of their of their life. But we know in our Islamic history, it's actually quite the contrary. Kids at that age, they became leaders of the oma, how many of you just raise your hands? How many of you have heard the story of 30 lebuh. Even Abdul Rahman or Viola whine? How many of you've heard the story before 30 lebuh Ibn Abdul Rahman rhodiola, line hamdulillah? None of you.

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

So guess what I want to do? I want to share the story with you. This story will lie every time I think about this story. And I talk about it and I narrated. It's so difficult not to become emotionally moved by the story. Are you guys ready to hear this story?

00:21:20--> 00:21:53

Sit back and relax, and walk through the life of a young 13 year old boy. During the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his name was Thera lava, or LDL, low Juan. He was the messenger boy for the prophets. I send them anytime the process of them had a message that he wanted to send to another house or another village. He called this little boy and say Here, take this message and go to so and so. so and so's house and deliver it. So he's like this errand boy.

00:21:54--> 00:22:09

One day, the prophets I send them gave him a message and say go to deliver it go and deliver it to so and so's home. So he takes it. Remember, he's a 13 year old kid according to some narrations. It's between 13 and 16 year old. Either way, this is a young kid.

00:22:10--> 00:22:16

So here he is. He takes the message and he starts walking. And it was a real windy day.

00:22:17--> 00:22:45

The breeze was blowing really, really hard. And he walked by a house back then the homes didn't have doors, they had curtains. So in on a windy day, the curtain would blow open. So as he's walking by just instinctively he sees a curtain by a door. And he kind of turns this way. And guess what he saw. He saw a woman inside that home and she was bathing herself.

00:22:46--> 00:23:03

As soon as he looked, he turned away immediately. And he started crying and he ran away. He actually ran outside of Medina. He ran outside of Medina and he left. You know why? Listen to the what the 13 year old kid is thinking now. He said, Oh my goodness.

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

I just saw this woman.

00:23:07--> 00:23:24

And Allah now is going to put me in the hellfire. That's what he's thinking. So Pam, what a 13 year old kids think when this stuff happens to them. So he's thinking, Oh, my God, Allah is gonna probably send down a verse against me. So I'm going to run away. I don't want to confront the prophets. I send him about this. He runs away.

00:23:26--> 00:23:27

nobody hears from him again.

00:23:29--> 00:23:32

Eventually, when the promises send them is leading the companions in prayer.

00:23:33--> 00:23:44

After a couple days, he notices tharla isn't around anymore. And he looks around to the companions. And he turns around to all of them like all of you here. And he says, where's Baba?

00:23:46--> 00:24:29

Where is he? I haven't seen him. Imagine this is the leader of the oma. He's concerned about one child, all the companions and all of their problems and issues. He's concerned about this one kid, where is he? What is the well being of this child? So everybody's saying we don't know how it was so low. We haven't seen him in a while. The prophets I sent him a sister omoto and salmonella faricy. And he says to both of rhodiola Juan Houma, he says both of you go out and find him go and look for him. omona and this other companion, they go out and they start searching for tharla. And they go outside of the city of Medina. They come across a shepherd. He has his sheeps and his animals and

00:24:29--> 00:24:36

they come across him, and they stop at him sort of like a service station. They want to refuel, so they want to get some milk and so on.

00:24:37--> 00:24:51

Then this Shepherd asks or model, what are you guys doing here? This gets kind of abnormal for to see you guys for me to coming around this area. So Omar says we're just looking for somebody a young kid, you wouldn't know who he is.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

So the shepherd, you know what he says? He says, perhaps you're talking about the kid who drinks the tearful milk

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

The tearful milk. So Omar was kind of interested, what are you talking about? So the man said, every single day, around mcrypt time

00:25:13--> 00:25:59

there's a kid that walks down from the mountains, and he comes to me, and he asks me for a cup of milk. But at the same time, he's always in tears, and he's crying. And some of his tears falls into the cup of milk, but he still keeps drinking. So Omar says, How can I see this child? I want to see who he is. He's starting to get curious now. So the man says if you just stay around, stick around for you know until a month and you'll see him he'll come down. So him and so bad a fantasy, they sit behind a brick, and they're waiting, scoping out the place. Guess what happens our own most of time. This little boy comes down, and he's crying and crying like crying. And guess who it is. It's third

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

of a

00:26:01--> 00:26:38

salivate comes in, he gets this milk from the shepherd. before he's about to drink it, almost watching all of this before he's about to drink, and he drops it to the floor. He's getting crippled. He can't come to grips with the fact of what he saw. Remember, this is a companion that didn't look on purpose. It was by accident. He didn't just didn't intention. It was just accident. He instinctively looked inside and he saw something and then the split second he turned away liquid he's liquid, he's gone and done. And he couldn't hold this cup of milk. Omar came out and confronted him. sila looks at her Omar and says no, no, no, no, no.

00:26:39--> 00:27:15

What are you guys doing here? I'm gonna do love wine. Sit third level we came to get you because the prophets I said them would like to see you. sila says no, no, no, no, no. did an idea come down against me. Did the promise I suddenly say I'm going to the Hellfire almost says I don't know. But you're gonna have to come sign up as a little boy or mother's Marshal. Lots of article. Okay. So that says I'm not going anywhere. So Omar says he doesn't really say Who do you think you're talking to? What would that attitude is? Oh, no, no, you're going back to Medina. He picks up thirdlove and he carries him back to Medina.

00:27:16--> 00:27:42

When they get to Medina, they take tharla to his house and they leave him there. They go to the prophesy. Solomon they said Jada sola, we found him, he's in his house, the process I sell them, you know what he does? He gets up right away, and he walks to his house and he opens the curtain and he sees Starla sitting there and he's crying. Theiler looks at the process, Solomon says, No, no, no yellow Sula. I can't confront you. I don't deserve to look at you.

00:27:43--> 00:27:49

Listen to the prophesized Selim Rahmatullah mean, the mercy to all mankind. Listen, how he starts speaking.

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

He says, Oh, tharla.

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

Okay, calm down.

00:27:55--> 00:28:00

And he's saying, No, no, no, Yoda Sula. Didn't I come down against me? Am I going to the Hellfire?

00:28:02--> 00:28:43

And he says to them, No, you're not. There's no verse against you. Come here. Look at his comfort. Look at his style of how he's going to comfort this child. This is not even his kid. It's just another combat. It's just a citizen. Citizen amongst this the sahabas. Just come here. And he says to put your head on my leg, lie down and put your head on my leg. Listen to what Salah says your rasulillah this head is filled with so much sin and corruption. It doesn't deserve to lie down on the side of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is a 13 year old kid okay?

00:28:44--> 00:28:54

So he promises them says it's okay. Just come. Salah comes quietly and he lays down on the prophets I send them it's like a father son moment now.

00:28:55--> 00:29:06

And prophesy send them puts his hand on third number and says 30 but what do you want? What's gonna make you feel better? and Tyler was crying and he says Dr. rasulillah

00:29:07--> 00:29:16

I just want to know that Allah has forgiven me for what I did. And the privacy settings has Starla Allah has forgiven you don't worry.

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

Guess what happened to

00:29:19--> 00:29:21

his body started shaking like this.

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

His whole body started shivering.

00:29:26--> 00:29:44

The promise I sent him is looking at him and said, Tell me what's happening to you? And says yo rasulillah I feel as though there are ants walking through my bones. And the prophesy centum says, oh, Baba, say the Shahada. Because death is coming to you right now.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

mentioned this kid what happened to him where he went and where he is at this moment. He's dying on the lap of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he starts shaking. And before you know what after a few

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

Moments later, Sarah lebuh dies.

00:30:04--> 00:30:21

He went from a kid that seems something that he thought was the end of the world for him. He started to repent and felt bad and felt horrible about himself. He came back and here he is, he dies on the lap of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:30:22--> 00:30:29

the promises and then picks him up, shrouds him, praise the janessa over him on the day of the funeral.

00:30:30--> 00:30:57

They saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walking on his toes, kind of tiptoeing, and he's walking around maratea Lahore and he saw the prophets I saw them do this. And he said, You're soon alone. Attempt Shia Allah Azza raffia Potomac, oneness lulac you're walking on the tip of your toes. But we the people, we've given you so much space to walk, why are you doing that? Because he was doing it in such a manner as though he was very crowded.

00:30:58--> 00:31:01

The province of a sudden them looks at the Armada and says, oh, Omar.

00:31:02--> 00:31:14

The reason why I am walking like this today is because there are so many angels present at the funeral of Theron lava. I don't have a place to move.

00:31:16--> 00:31:34

You see what happened, where he went? Where's our life today? When we see something how long when you just like simple like you turn on the news or something. And you look at the screen. A lot of the kids have Facebook today, you put a picture of yourself, you know, you do that whole, you know, Fatima,

00:31:35--> 00:31:42

your niqab or something, you know, or the brother Mashallah Barclay puts on his like NBA jersey and he's, he's kissing his forearm. He's saying Bismillah

00:31:43--> 00:31:55

that's what a kid's doing today. Look at your role model. Look at his 13 year old thigh lobato De La Hoya and what he does all because by accident, he saw something how dumb

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

sisters

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

for you.

00:32:00--> 00:32:02

My message to you is very simple.

00:32:04--> 00:32:24

Always know And remember, that in this world today, and the world that it was years ago, since the time of the time of Adam alayhis salam, and the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, always remember one thing. Islam would have never completed itself without you.

00:32:26--> 00:33:14

The movement and the knowledge of Islam would have never been completed without women. Let me give you just one example. There was a great scholar in the fifth century his name was Mmm hmm. Abdullah and nicer Bori Rahim Allah. This scholar was a profound scholar of Headey, he authored a collection of books called mustard rock, Allah Sahih hain. And this book here is a collection of authentic hadith that is not found in Bukhari and Muslim. So he wanted to show that not all the authentic caddies are restricted to just those two books. And he brought other authentic hadith as well. So he was a profound scholars, the people at his time, they said there was nobody in the Muslim Ummah that

00:33:14--> 00:33:16

had more knowledge about Hadees than this man.

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

You know what he said?

00:33:19--> 00:34:15

He said, that one quarter of the Hadeeth that he narrates, he got it from women. Which means that a quarter of the Shetty era is made up of just you alone, and three quarters of the year, is a mixture of both of us. This knowledge, and this religion could have never been completed without you. The reason why I'm saying this is sisters in 2014. We don't just need another male scholar at hamdulillah. We'll take them as we get them. But we want more female leadership, we want more female scholars, we want you to take back the position that you had as leading scholars of Islam, we want you to have those positions again. So my advice to all of you is to take advantage of your time.

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

Brothers, support your women, change our attitude towards the sisters towards our wives, and give them that opportunity to want to learn to want to excel the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remember he told us Don't ever stop them from going to msgid don't ever stop them from wanting to learn. If they want to come to a conference, you give them that right because that is a hack Allah gave them sisters. You guys are not just mothers. You guys are not just daughters. You guys are not just wives. You guys are leaders of this omit that help complete the whole religion of Islam. Stop trivializing yourself and thinking that you don't have a place in this religion man

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to increase you and give you the honor you deserve in this world. You know, in Toronto, most of my students are sisters. Literally, I would say more than 70% of them. And people ask me why, like brother Muslim, you know, why always taking care of the ladies? You know, what about us? This is exactly the reason why every single time you give a challenge to sisters, they will always excel in this for us brothers, we have to be taught how to do that. It's just like when when when a woman gets pregnant, you know what happens to her. As soon as she goes to the doctor and she finds out that she's pregnant. She's already in love with her child, she starts

00:35:40--> 00:36:19

you know, she's one week pregnant. I'm gonna save up for college and and look after you and you know, make lots of doubles for you. And Shall I know, you're gonna do all of those wonderful things. But us guys, you know what happens to us after the baby is born? Three weeks later, you're talking to each other like, Hey, I can't believe I'm a father, you know. So Angela, she fell in love with that child. Since she hurts. She was pregnant. We had to been taught how to do that. So every single individual has their own right and has their own place. Brothers and sisters, this is especially for us brothers. But I'm going to leave you with one final message that I think in sha Allah hooter

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

Allah would really summarize the point that I'm trying to make here today.

00:36:24--> 00:36:56

The world is changing brothers and sisters. life as we know it. The parents here, you know how life was 20 years ago how Islam was 20 years ago, the fitna, the lifestyle has completely changed from back then to today. some of your questions yesterday, when we did the q&a. some of your questions was over the years, the fitness keeps increasing more and more Carnival whatever is getting worse and worse for us is becoming more and more difficult for us to deal with things are changing. What do you do?

00:36:57--> 00:37:47

Be amongst the people that hold on to order n. Porter n is the only source it's the only miracle that we still have in front of us. We still have it in our hands for and it's something that you can go up to a non Muslim and say here, here is our miracle that Allah gave us. It's still with us. It's in our hands. This is the miracle that we have. That's the miracle that you and I we have. Don't be amongst the people. That will come on the day of judgment and the prophesize Selim will say, we'll call it Rasulullah. Robbie. He was saying the prophesy son will say Oh, my master in hometel, who has an Anima Judah, my people they took this poor em, and they abandoned. The word that's used is

00:37:47--> 00:38:32

Majora. It comes from the word hits euro. hydro means to migrate. These people they migrated away from Quran. Allah azza wa jal says, has Al Quran. In the beginning of the Quran, Allah said that he killed keytab. Heather is a pronoun that's used to describe something very close to you, then he has referred to something that's far away from you. So Allah is saying that this poor end is right here in front of you. It's right there on your phone. It's right there on the bookshelf. It's right there in the masjid. But you still made a huge run away from it. You still left that Qur'an and you put it on the shelf and you left it there, you only waited for Joe mahoba the hottie we'll talk a little

00:38:32--> 00:38:52

bit about Cora, that was your dosa for and for the whole week. It's our core and really is for you. You have said this before that some of our gatherings I'm West Indian as well. So I'm speaking even for myself, some of our gatherings, you know, you'll go to a wedding and you'll pay a guy some money just to recycle and just before the DJ comes out

00:38:54--> 00:39:29

is that what core ang became for us, you know, sahabas they spilt their blood so that we could have this poor end in front of us. They gave up their whole entire life and their family and their land and everything that their own, just so you can I can have this core and and this is what has become for us. It's become ceremonial. When you get the wedding invitation. What do Muslims like to do? They like to put a number 21 and sutra through what mean at verily from amongst the size we have created sprout it's the one I every single single Muslim has meant has memorized is the only coriander dado.

00:39:30--> 00:39:48

This is what they've used, they just use it decorated, throw it away again. It's not what has become for us. We have to train ourselves to start coming back and building a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala his book and only then the world today will start to make sense to you again.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

You start thinking you're you start making decisions based on color and you see something haram you say, I will let him initiate honor regime. Why? Because God told you to do that.

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

You see some kind of fitna. Somehow I'm walking by you remember right away unless told you in foreign, believing men believing women lower your eyes turn away. Your mind is starting to train itself to think por en.

00:40:17--> 00:40:20

us if somebody wants to come and argue with you, what do you do?

00:40:21--> 00:41:04

What are you the hot tub homall jehlen palu Salama, Orion told you that when they come and they raise their voice and they're screaming and yelling at you, what do you do? respond and with selama doesn't this mean they're screaming at you? And just like said, I want to come so that when they go, No, no, no, set them It means here. Try to extinguish the problem in a dignified manner. He just calm down, just relax. So let's talk. Let's just try to work something out. You start training your mind to think poor and so brothers and sisters, I conclude that this is the message that I leave you with here with a Miskin slave of Allah azza wa jal coming to here on your stage in your community.

00:41:04--> 00:41:45

This is the final message that I've leave you with in sha Allah tala start to build a relationship with or and start to think about versus start studying it again. I start making making it relevant into your life don't make or and just a translation, because even the translation sometimes we don't even understand, you know, you're reading this old classical English name, Thou shalt not seek to thy neighbor's. What was this talking about? How do you relate to that? How do you get how do you understand what the Quran is saying to you? So you just start to figure out a way that you can make this poor and start speaking in your own training style.

00:41:47--> 00:42:26

May Allah subhanho wa Taala, learn love all of you and accept all of you. This is in my final few moments with all of you, brothers and sisters, I want to say to all of the organizers to all of the brothers and sisters in the volunteers from my heart to all of you may Allah azza wa jal bless you and honor you in this world, and then the ephemera and give you the things that he's promised you and give you the things that you desire from within yourself. May Allah azza wa jal give it to you. You guys are real leaders, at least in the West Indian world, in the Caribbean world. This is the first time I've ever heard an island or a country in this part of the world, doing something like

00:42:26--> 00:43:12

this. You guys have taken the step of becoming leaders in this movement, to bringing Islam for people to understand in a simplified, inspirational manner so that you continue to better your life in sha Allah. Don't make this conference, the end of you bettering yourself as you continue your life. Because who knows? This could be the last conference I ever attend in my entire life. And it could be the same for all of you. If this is the last time I ever see you Trinidad, may Allah subhanho wa Taala reunite us in his Jen fi Macario city planner in dimiliki muqtada in a place in an honorable position close to him and near to him. I look forward Trinidad. I cannot wait to come back

00:43:12--> 00:43:17

here to cannot wait to be amongst all of you. I cannot wait to eat double I mean

00:43:20--> 00:43:29

I cannot wait to see you again. Trinidad May Allah azza wa jal Bless you all I think you will set out more Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
