00:00:47--> 00:00:49

So don't worry it won't delay but I'll go to

00:00:51--> 00:01:25

Mr. Lau Han or he will hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was someone that was somebody who Mohammed water early he was a hobby of mine was an amateur Sleeman Kathira my boss of Chanukah Alma Ilana Valentina in Antalya Hakima basically said that he was silly every one of them rissani vokalia My bad. So today inshallah we begin with a part right before the show the next week we'll be talking about the intersection of US law so long it was setting them, those people who will benefit from the intersection of the Providence settlement those who will be deprived. But today we're talking about those people who will be saved on the Day of Judgment. First of all, I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:25--> 00:01:47

to make us from amongst those, even though yes, we all have shortcomings, we have made a lot of mistakes. At the same time, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. He's about 14 years old Rahim. And Allah subhanho wa taala, he has a choice. Either he can hold us accountable. He can either serve justice on the Day of Judgment, or he can shower His mercy upon us. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the letter.

00:01:49--> 00:02:26

One of the very first people that we will talk about today are those people which the way Ibrahim on his time he described in the Quran, the way he brought him out of Islam, he describes these people on the Day of Judgment is is very simple. The people who does share in this in this dunya, they will have to suffer the consequences of the shaking the AKA, not only that, but the alumni have also said that it works very, very simple. You know, just let me give you an example. You know, when we sit down with our own kids, we tell our own kids, right? We give this example, that today, my son you study you work hard, you know, go to sleep, I mean, go to school, and now you're gonna have

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

sleepless nights, but study study study, because once you finish your studies and you get a great job, and Shala you're making six figures, then I've answered Bertagna you know, we say this right? Then you can sit down and you can relax and so forth. That is the concept first you work hard, then there's gonna be times of ease. The same concept applies to the ark era. If in this dunya a person does whatever they want to do in this dunya then the Ark era they will have to suffer the consequences. If a person in this dunya does and he gives up everything that he wants for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Isla and he crushes his desires for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:06--> 00:03:33

and he does whatever Allah wants, he may not like it, he may have to go through some challenges, but in the accurate inshallah he will get something which is called Jana. The concept is so simple. So this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, when these people they came to Ibrahim alayhis salam he says what can you find a half of my shocked him while at the harpoon? Well Latifah fauna and nakoma shocked on bIllahi min Amina ZIL vra come soltana

00:03:34--> 00:04:19

He brought him out Islam says and how should I fear those whom you associate in worship with Allah subhanahu wata Allah, though they can either benefit no harm, while you fear not that you have joined in worship, worship with Allah subhanho wa Taala things for which He has not sent down any authority, meaning that the one who has authority you don't worship him, but the one who has no authority you worship him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran he mentioned about these people that these are the people who are the only of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the only of Allah subhanho wa Taala are those people as highlighted in the Quran is Alladhina amanu what can we attack on these

00:04:19--> 00:04:28

are the people that number one they had faith, not Islam, they had Iman there is a difference. One is Islam as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in a hadith

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

al Eman Omar Walker a film called was the man that Eman is that which is in the heart and it is manifest through one's actions. One is that we all say that we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala we all verbally declare that Muhammad wa Salam is the Messenger of Allah, that is Islam that is not Iman. The one is that we live through that that is called Iman so first of all, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says over and over again the Quran, that when it comes to Jana, when it comes to the

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

Glad Tidings of the hereafter. Those are promised only to those people who have Iman. And this is why it is so important that we make an account and we take an account of ourselves every single day. One time was la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. I don't remember the exact Hadith, but he came to a Sahabi lying down inside the masjid. And he says, that gave us but he says, How do you spend your morning? And look at the sahaba? He looked at his answer, he says a spa two minute hardcore, that I spent my morning in the state of Eman. And when the Prophet saw some asked him in a nearby meeting of the Hadith when he asked him that what is your belief that you have Eman? And he says that

00:05:46--> 00:06:29

whenever I do something good. It pleases me in my heart. But when I do something wrong, it hurts me I know there is a guilty conscience in my heart. And the problem is that if someone says you have Iman, so the thing is that we have taken account of our iman every single day. There is nowhere in the Quran where Allah has promised Jana simply to those people who have Islam because Islam is only making a declaration by verbally but you we have to live our life through Iman and then Allah subhanho wa Taala says Alladhina amanu wa can who yet upon those who have Taqwa why? Because without up Allah Deen in our life cannot then cannot come into my life. It cannot come into my heart. And

00:06:29--> 00:07:13

then Allah subhanho wa Taala says when a person has Iman, and a person has stucco, he says, no one will push raw, there is glad tidings were filled hieratic dunya will fill in this dunya and in the akhira, when in this dunya, when a person is about to depart from this world, the angels in the melodica come to him and they say what a comfy Malatesta he unfeasible while a comfy hamata down that there is no grief upon you, there is no sorrow upon you. Now we give you the glad tidings of Jana. So this is why it is very important that we take an account of ourselves every single day. The next one, which is a very, very beautiful hadith of Allah, Allahu alayhi wa sallam is those people

00:07:13--> 00:07:16

who will be under the shade of the Throne of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:07:17--> 00:07:56

And while we have heard this hadith many times, there are other people who will also be under the shade of the Throne of Allah subhanho wa taala, which are not exactly mentioned in that hadith and we'll go through them. First of all, is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned a just ruler, why a gesture ruler, because brothers and sisters when it comes to authority, when it comes to authority, there are very, very few people who use their authority in the right way. See, you know, the one thing is that when it comes to authority, people feel like that I have power. And when I have power, I don't need to listen to anyone. If I have power, I don't have to take I don't

00:07:56--> 00:08:27

have to consult with anyone. If I have power, I can impose my will upon someone else, whether they like it or not. This is something that's extremely important for all of us to understand. Number one is I want to share with you a hadith. If remember I mentioned this hadith in Ramadan, Abu Mustafa was not able to muster with a boomless or the Allah to dawn on Saudi companion. One time he was there and he was striking his sleeve Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came, and he says

00:08:28--> 00:08:48

like such a harsh voice that Abu Masaru says that the prophet has salams level in his tone was so much changed, that I could not recognize that it was Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's how much the Prophet alayhi salam was upset number one. Number two, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never asked him.

00:08:49--> 00:09:29

Why are you hitting him? Why are you here? He never asked that. Why? Because there is no justification of volume. You don't want people to come to other people when people go for counseling. People ask that when if a person says that I have been under the oppression or this person oppresses me. My husband oppresses me. My wife oppresses me. Then the first question is asked is that Did you do anything? To receive that oppression? Right? That's a very first question that people ask. In the case of us Rasul Allah, who it was something he did not even ask that question. He could have asked, almost always, why are you hitting him? He never asked that. Why? Because there

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

is no justification for law number one to begin with. But number two, every person who doesn't bloom every person who says I have power, every person who says that I can do whatever I want, because I have power. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says something that should cause us to you know, that should cause us to become imbalanced. The Prophet saw some says something so profound, he says, Allahu Akbar Daru Minka

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Allahu Akbar alayka Minca Ali, these are the words of humans that today you feel like they you have dominion over that person, but Allah has dominion over you. If we ever for a moment think that I have control over this person, I can abuse this person, I can do whatever I want because I'm in this position that always remember that there is someone who has a higher position than you and and we and that is Allah subhanho wa taala. Today if I think this way, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will treat me the same way. In fact, it is mentioned

00:10:39--> 00:11:21

I believe, hustle and bustle document Allah Allah He mentioned that when it comes to loan when it comes to don't There are three levels of volume. One is that you do loan against a person who has a complete right over you. For example, to do one, this is the this is a type of one which is not the worst type of loan, but is a type of one that is despised the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala for for example, doing loans against her parents doing loans against her mother doing loan against your father, these are people who have unconditional right over you. Whether you like them or not, whether you agree with them or not. Whether they have they have said things to you and or not in

00:11:21--> 00:12:03

their life you owe to your parents at the end of the day. That's all it comes down to. Number One Number two, to be abusive and to do against those people who are the only yeah of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the one thing about the only of Allah subhanho wa Taala is, is that no one who any person who was a willy of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is not written on their forehead, that they are the will of Allah subhanaw taala we have Allah He no idea who is the one he walking in our in our Masjid. There are people who wake up 4pm or late at night, there are people who are so connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala unfortunately, today we look at certain people and we judge them oh, this

00:12:03--> 00:12:42

person he's such as such he doesn't he's not a weenie, who are we to judge anyone else, I need to look at myself in the mirror, there could be any person coming to the masjid And subhanAllah on the Day of Judgment, we will find out that this person that we never used to give them any attention in the community. They never had a status in the community, but they turned out to be the wali of Allah subhanho wa taala. So to do a loan against these people is also the second type of loan, which is a higher type of loan. And the worst type of loan that anyone can do against someone else is to do a loan against someone who has no power, who has no protection, and they have no one on their side.

00:12:42--> 00:13:21

This is why when Allah Subhana Allah talks about the polish in Makkah, especially the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says for that he can levy your daughter, only a team. First of all you listening about a team or your team is who someone who doesn't have anyone, someone who doesn't have probably parents, and they have no one to look after them, no one to give to give them support, no one to console them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says that one of the biggest crimes of the Quraysh committed is that when these get team when these orphans would have come to them, and they would ask them for help knowing these people knew very well that they have no one to protect them. And here I

00:13:21--> 00:14:00

have everything I can do whatever I want. Allah says you don't owe your team. One is to push someone away, but one is to push someone away. So with so much aggressiveness that they can they fall down, they fall down and they cannot even defend themselves. That is what is called Get don't get in this is what they will do. And Allah subhanho wa Taala because of this volume, because this is according to hustle and bustle the the highest and the worst type of learning. Allah subhanaw taala highlighted this in the Quran. So if we ever find ourselves and there are people who do this, there are people who do this, that they know very well that I can do whatever I want to this person

00:14:00--> 00:14:41

because they are in need of me when an employer abuses their employee because they know that I know their family situation, I know this person's financial situation, and I can do whatever I want and they will have to listen to me. I will bend them, I will twist them I will break their arm and they will stay quiet because they need that. That person should realize that today you want that person to be in need of you and you abuse them. Tomorrow I will stand me for Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah can abuse me the same exact way. This is exactly what we see. And this is what is mentioned about one. One last story I want to share with you when it comes to lung. And when it comes in when

00:14:41--> 00:14:51

it comes to justice. I'm leaving also the law that Iran was a governor of Egypt. He was someone who was assigned. I believe in the time we're only able to help out with the yellow tonight.

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

I'm giving to us had a son but anyway, Mohammed. Mohammed was a very skilled one.

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Were Smith, and he would compete with other people when it came to horse racing and so forth. There was a Coptic Christian in Egypt, who sort of challenged him. And he says, You know what I challenge you. He says, you know, in our American history language, bring it on. Okay. So what happened was that they went and they had this duel. This Coptic Christian defeated Muhammad, Muhammad in Menominee, menos. When that happened, Muhammad got so humiliated, he took a stick, and he whacked that person, he hid that person. Now this Coptic Christian or think about his situation, he's living were in Islamic land, right? Yes or No, he's living in a Muslim land. Everyone is everyone has

00:15:45--> 00:16:29

remained quiet about it. No one is saying anything about it. And he goes to people and he says, I want justice. What happened to me was wrong. I want justice. And they said that if you want justice, you go to camera photography, Allah Quran. And he said they will only give me justice. He's the one who has signed this person father as a governor will he apply will give me justice. Because I guarantee you in this day and age, if there is this innocent civilian who was who was the victim, then in this day and age because of Governor's because of politics will law, he there will be no justice. There will be no justice, because the friendship, the the governor's the how they they look

00:16:29--> 00:17:11

after each other, they care for each other and they will put each other's crimes under the rug. People went in and said go to Walmart, he went to Oman or the hola tonight. And he told him the story and almost says you know what, you stay here in Medina. And he sent a letter to me but as he says, right now, I want you and your son to come to Medina. And I'm having said that I'm honest with you. It says that Alma robiola on he honored that man to such an extent that the few days he was in Medina, the time it took them to come from Egypt to Medina, he kept him and he kept him as a guest. He honored him like a guest took care of him, never imposed, that you have to accept his son. He is

00:17:11--> 00:17:17

an innocent civilian, and he was harmed and he was he's the victim here. When I'm moving to AWS and Muhammad Cain.

00:17:19--> 00:17:58

I'm one of the on call that person. And he says, Now that all three of you are standing over here. Tell me what happened. That Coptic Christian told his story he has Mohammed did exactly is that what happened? He says, Yes. He says, You know what, you get this, you get the stick, and you hit Mohammed, hit Muhammad right now in front of me, because that is what it is called justice. He took a stake he hidden Mohammed. Then after that, he said, then I'm gonna go and said, I want you to take the stick and put it on the head, put it where on the head of Omni bring us. Now people ask why on the head of our webinars, do not do anything. He was nothing. He was a part of this. And oh, my God,

00:17:58--> 00:18:44

it was said that I put the stick upon your head, because I want you to realize that this is going to come upon you on the Day of Judgment. Because this happened under your authority, you have created an atmosphere where people can do under your supervision, and they can get away with it. And this is going to come on your shoulder on your head on the day of judgment. And then not only that, on rhodiola, on he cared so much for the rights of this person, because Omar wanted to show the entire world that What does Islamic justice means he sent Muhammad he sent us back to Egypt. He said Mohammed back to Egypt. And not only that, but he sent that copy Christian along with them to Egypt

00:18:44--> 00:19:22

now, naturally, the first thing that may come to our mind is that if it was anyone else, um, even OSes hobby, we know you will not do anything. But what if it was someone else? Imagine if someone to complain against someone else? If they all three were sent together to Egypt? What would what of these two people would have done if it was anyone else, these two people would have easily killed that person, they would have hurt that person. On the other hand, even though the Sahaba he's not he's not he doesn't have any ill thoughts against. I'm even asked his son now. But he sent us fourth person that you be you supervise and you protect this person while they get all the way to Egypt.

00:19:23--> 00:19:58

And this person accompany this fourth person accompany them all the way to Egypt, to ensure that no harm is done to this person. Because there could be physical harm, there could be emotional harm, there could be psychological harm by this force, this fourth person maintain and he made sure that no type of limb is done to this person. This is what you call justice. This is what you call justice. And the Prophet SAW sent on once again, he says a just ruler why? Because there are going to be while we think that there are going to be a lot of people under the shade of the throne of the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment. No, there aren't brothers and sisters,

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

because what the prophet as I mentioned

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

here and this hadith. There are very few people who do this today. There are very few people who do this. The second one,

00:20:07--> 00:20:19

the young men who grew up worshipping Allah subhanho wa taala, restraining himself from the restraining himself with the reins of tequila and controlling his whims and his desires. So he remained all pure his life.

00:20:20--> 00:20:57

When it comes to our youth, you know, people come and they ask me that, because I was born and raised in this country. I never went to Islamic school. I never went to summer school. Yes. When I went to study, I went to go study at a summer university, I studied over there. But throughout my life, I went to a public school and people say that, how is it that you went to public school, and this is what you do today. And today, we have other kids who go to public school and look at their situation, first of all, is times have changed. Okay. Times have changed the fitna that our kids are facing today. At one time when I was going to school, when I was a kid, we had a different school

00:20:57--> 00:21:33

structure. You know, there was elementary school, then there was junior high, or there was there was junior high, Junior High was seventh, eighth and ninth grade. And then high school was 10th 11th 12th grade. That's how the structure was that time. Today is different. But the things that the the fitna, and these are the things that we hear today, that the wrong things, the Zina the drinking, and all these days going on today, at that time used to take place primarily in high school. And if it if we would, if we would come into junior high, it was a big deal. And no one could possibly imagine that the things that that time they used to do in high school, it will be

00:21:33--> 00:22:11

people will be doing that in elementary school today. But that those are the times that we're living in today, the promiscuity that is taking place in our society. Every single time these kids they turn on the TV, they see something regarding this, they see something regarding to this fitna. And these horrified that we call they see these kinds of things. So that's why first of all our kids, they go through a much different, much difficult time, then probably we went through and when it comes to parents will lie, we have to truly understand their challenges. At one time we were going through our challenges, and at that time, the challenges were not so much. And today we look at our

00:22:11--> 00:22:47

own kids and we say that I used to try us to control myself, why can't you control yourself? The reason is because first of all, respectfully, majority of the people sitting over here that are from overseas don't want to begin with and the Hora fat and the fitness that were taking place over here. Were not taking place so much over there on that side of the world. It was there and to some extent I'm not saying that it was not there. Zina used to take place in the in the community of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam it has always been there but as the years have gone by the fitness have increased and I'm just I don't want to scare you anymore. But the fitters are gonna get even worse,

00:22:47--> 00:23:25

the fitness are gonna get even worse. And for a youngster in this day and age Wallahi if a youngster says that I have protected my chastity, I have not done haram and they have finished and they have completed high school will Allah He I give them so much credit will law he I give them so much credit, not through college, not to another university. Even if a person says I have gone through high school because will Allah He brothers and sisters, you have no idea what our youth are up to nowadays, and the youth who have protected themselves. These are the ones who are going to be honored by Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment. Then the next one will be those who

00:23:25--> 00:23:52

frequently House of Allah subhanho wa Taala why because as time goes as we as time goes, goes by as we know from other hadith of Ursula Allahu it was sent them it will be so difficult to maintain your deen as it is mentioned at the highest levels as salam that it will be as difficult as holding on to burning charcoal. Now think about this when you are next time doing barbecue in the next time, okay, first of all invite me okay, but number two is

00:23:53--> 00:24:35

just imagine if you have that charcoal burning charcoal and you hold in your hand you can't hold it. The province of Santa mentions that this is going to there will come a time that holding on to that will be like similarly as to holding on burning charcoal will be that difficult. And the very first place that becomes deserted is what the House of Allah subhanaw taala the massages are the very first ones that take a hit. Now if you look around here, just think about this. Today we get around what probably 300 people for Southeast Asia 250 people for South Asia. You do the math. Okay. You simply do the math. How many youngsters do we get? Probably we get around like 4050 Youngsters okay

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

yes or no? We get 4050 youngsters. So if 4050 youngsters today and and 100 I'll tell you this much in epic we do at Hamdulillah we have done a much better job than other massages. I'm not saying that we have done a fantastic, fantastic job because when I have gone to mshs to give lectures at high schools and so forth, there are so many youngsters I will say 90% of our youngsters don't come to the Masjid 90% of our youngsters are not

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

Coming to the masjid so even the 10% or 5% that are coming to the masjid as I have when I've talked to youth directors, you directors who are nationally, nationally renowned us directors, when I've talked to them, they said is only 5% of the youth who are coming to the masjid. Okay, so let's just say even take 5% Or comments on budget in epic, we are still done a much better job but I have gone to other communities where there's only three youngsters for youngsters in the US and that's auto Orisha in South Asia. The thing about this 50 years go by and majority of us sitting over here we are not even we're not even not we're not going to be here. Are we are we really I mean as times get

00:25:40--> 00:26:17

bad think about this take into effect the times are gonna get bad also, how many youth are going to be coming to the masjid? The machines are going to be empty, the machines are going to be empty. So this is why the Prophet SAW Selim he has mentioned that these people are going to be blessed and they will be under the shade of the arch of Allah subhanho wa Taala because they hold on to the massager and as Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, in Yama, masajid Allah, those people who frequent the house of Allah are those people. When I'm in a biller who believe in Allah, wa kama Salah Zakah they established their salon that gives the cat well I'm Yaksha Illallah and they don't

00:26:17--> 00:27:00

fear anyone but Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah says, For Arsa, Allah Iike, India Kuno Meenal moto Dean, as long as we're coming to the masjid Allah Subhan Allah will continue to guide us the minute we are disconnected from the masjid then the Rama of ALLAH SubhanA will will start coming the light of Eman was upcoming Subhanallah a scholar once again there was a scholar from India I remember he was named as one of Ibrahim he one time give a very beautiful example he says that when a fruit when a fruit is connected to the tree, okay, when a fruit is connected to the tree, as long as it is connected to the tree, you will see it developing you'll see it getting you'll see it

00:27:00--> 00:27:39

becoming mature. The color will change the sourness will turn into sweetness as long as it is connected to the tree. The minute it is disconnected from the tree and it falls on the ground. There is no more development in his color. There is no more development in his taste. It does not grow anymore. In fact, people walk right over it and they throw it away. Likewise as long as we are connected to the masjid as long as we are connected with these gatherings that revive our iman, they are Emaar will become colorful, our Eman will become sweet but the minute we disconnect ourselves from the masjid, the minute we disconnect ourselves from gatherings where we are reminded by about

00:27:39--> 00:28:18

Allah subhana wa Tada and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is from that moment on the sweetness of Eman stops, then slowly and gradually shape on he then replaces the seeds of Eman with the seeds of Cofer and slowly and gradually that seed once again any seed that you put is going to grow a plant you put the seed of iman is going to grow a plant you put a seed of comfort is going to grow a plant in slowly and gradually shape on he puts that seed of gopher in our hearts and then slowly and gradually it takes over our entire heart but what's the very first thing that happens? We disconnect disconnect ourselves from the machine. That's why it's so important that we keep the

00:28:18--> 00:28:36

Sunnah of coming to the masjid alive within our own children. Breathe them every single day to the masjid if you can Wallah is very beneficial for them. So we'll go on and stop right here. We're not done with this hadith Inshallah, but we will go into some more explanation inshallah next week, but from this hadith, we've covered the jugular,
