My daughter came in middle
school when I was a bit fussy now woman say it
sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kcrw. Amanda, my dear brothers and sisters cinematic Welcome to La Habra Council.
This has been a very difficult week for me. And I'll start off by telling you why, you know, one of the worst things that you can do to ruin someone's fun, or to ruin a gathering or to ruin the party, is to start talking about death. That's the worst thing you can do. It ruins the mood for everyone. And I was with my kids this past Saturday, we were sitting at the McDonald's playroom, you know, where kids can like go on the slides. And they have like all these balls and things that they can play with. And I'm sitting there and I'm reading the newspaper. And I get to the section of the obituary, where it tells and announces all the people that have passed away. And as I'm reading
this, and looking at the dates, and the vast majority of people were born between 1930 and 1934. So 90% of the people that died, were born between these years, I thought to myself, I know, logically speaking, that means that whoever was born in 1936, you know, Allah knows best, but it's very possible that they could be next on this list within the next two years. Now, the reason why 1936 is important to me, is because that was the year my father, you know, have a lot of time I was born, and being away from my parents is always in an emotional struggle, who's going to take care of them? What's going to happen if something, you know, happens to them love federal law? And you know,
what's going to happen in that situation? And I was using my kids. And I'm like, my wife's like, you know, why are you so down and stuff? And I'm like, it's nothing, don't worry about it. And she's getting upset, you know, why am I not talking about what's on my mind, but I don't want to ruin it for the kids. You know, you talk to the kids in the playroom about death. And then you can imagine what's going to happen in that room. So time goes on. I didn't think too much of it. And we get through yesterday. And yesterday, I remember waking up. And just in opening my emails, I have something like maybe 14 emails saying that someone has passed away. And I thought to myself,
Spangler who could have passed away, and I look through them and one of my colleagues from the Islamic University of Medina, his name was out of sight. And this brother, he was forced out of his country sooner than he used to live in Suriname, and he will he migrated to Indonesia. And they accepted him there. And you know, that's where he lived. And we studied together at the university all the way up until 2008. Now, the thing about this brother, I'm sure we've all met people like this in our lives, but people who are annoyingly happy, meaning that the world could be ending and this brother is smiling at your faces, if nothing's wrong, he was one of those brothers.
And you know, when I heard about his death, I couldn't believe it, because he was 30 years old, 30 years old. And the way he died was he prayed a lot the Lord used to teach at the University of Ottawa, and was on his way home. And on his way home, I was underwhelmed that he had a heart attack at the age of 30. And I thought to myself, Angela, this brother, you know, he was in very good shape, you know, martial law, he wasn't overweight, he wasn't obese. regularly, we'd see him walking into university. And you wouldn't assume that this would be a type of brother that would have a heart attack and passed away. And since then, you know, my mind has been spinning some kind of law,
that this could have been any one of us. And just by show of hands, how many people over here are about 30 years old, 30 and older. The vast majority of us over here, actually, not maybe about half and half are above 30, you know, just couldn't be any of us. And since then, I've been thinking, enormous penalties Allah, He sends death as a reminder. And sometimes you become heedless of this, you know, there's this famous quote, that Why is everyone loves life when hate death. And death says that because you are a beautiful life, and I am the ugly truth. And that is the reality of it. My dear brothers and sisters, that when it comes to death, we like to be like ostriches. You know, when
an ostrich is being attacked, and puts it head in the sand and thinks that the problem is going to go away. But the reality is death is going to come to any one of us. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that death will come to you, even if you weren't the most fortified of fortresses above in the skies. If you think you can escape death, it can never happen, because it is a reality for each and every one of us. And it is something we need to prepare for. To add to that nighttime columns and I'm still having these thoughts and reflections and one of the great scholars from India he was the head of
Mighty slamming over there by the name of Chicago, hopped on I'm sorry,
Tyler, he translated a lot of shareholders and even taymiyah his words, and you know, works that personally benefited me as I was growing up, I used to read his things, you know, to lose a great scholar like him, that was another great atrocity. This morning, at around 8am, I get another text message, a brother that I grew up playing baseball with his mother passed away today. And then to add to it on my way over here,
you know, I make a rule upon myself have to speak to my parents at least once every three days, and three days were passing. So I thought, you know, if I don't call my mother right now, I'm not going to get a chance to speak to her. So on my way, here, I call her up. And I asked her, you know, how's everything what's going on, and she starts telling me about her doctor's appointments and you know, things that are going to happen. And she says, you know, in the vein, if I pass away, I want you to make sure that you come and watch my body. And I thought to myself, you know, what is this whole week, just filled with reminders about death. And I thought to myself, Sinaloa, maybe this is what
Allah subhanho wa Taala wants me to speak about this week. So I wanted to share the beginning of our Hanukkah talking about death, and how it is an ultimate reality. And there's no matter how young you are, no matter how rich you are, no matter how good your health is, if I was pregnant with the other words for you to die, you will die. So we need to be prepared for death. And I want to share some basic tips and pointers with you in terms of how to be prepared for death, because that's
the first thing that will commanded with is that we should leave on our car for our family. So as we know, when we pass away, our wealth is automatically divided according to the Sharia, we don't have a choice in terms of how it is divided. However, our panel has appointed one third of our wealth in terms of we can divide it in terms of any way that we please. So that one third of your worth, you can do with it as you please, the first thing that should happen from it is that your loans need to be paid off from that because it is not your family's problem that they pay for your debts. So your your loan should be paid off from that. Secondly, if you want to give money to any one of your
friends or relatives, that is not already inheriting. So meaning your parents are not included in this, your sisters and brothers are included in this, your children are not included in this other than them, if you'd like to give some money to them, when they pass away, it's taken away from this one third, think about the charity that you want to leave behind. Perhaps you know right now you can't give charity but when you pass away, you know you may have some money leftover, leave a portion aside for some charity that even after you pass away, this charity is given out. So you have to give you have to live with the what we call a CLR in English, a will. And the Messenger of Allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that not Do not let three days pass by, except that you have updated your will. Meaning that you have updated your debts, the charity that you want to give people that owe you money and you know other expenses like that, make sure it is mentioned. You also want to prepare for that for those of you who are married and have children, how your family and children want to be taken care of after that, you know, the bank accounts that you have right now, have you prepared a document saying that this money is to be divided islamically because if you don't do that, the government naturally takes up to half of it. So if you have let's say something
like $20,000, the government can take up to half to $10,000 if they will if you do not leave a will. So you have to make sure you leave a willing no leave guidelines in terms of who should pray or janazah who should wash your body. If you have you know any money that's hidden somewhere where it's hidden so your family will have access to it. These are all things you want to mention visit anytime.
A second thing you want to prepare for is in terms of the reward that you can still incur even after you pass away the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells us that when a person passes away, three things follow him to his grave. His family follows him. His wealth follows him, and his actions and deeds follow him to have them return. And one of them remain his family and his wealth, they go back to where they belong. But it is his deeds that are going to remain with him. And it is his deeds that he will be just upon. And another Hadith the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that there are three things that will benefit a dead person, there are
three things that will benefit a dead person after he passes away. The first of them is a silica Giardia, a sadaqa jariya. And I'll come to explain what that is. The second of them is a knowledge that he has left behind that the people benefit from. So whether you've written an article, whether you've given a lecture, maybe one day you just gave a reminder, and someone implemented it, they'll be delighted as long as they continue to implement it and teach it to others, you will continue to benefit from it. And this is one of the greatest things that you can do that right now you may say Who are you to leave knowledge behind. But I remind you, my dear brothers and sisters, that anyone
can leave knowledge behind. It's about what you know. So if you know how to recite Surah Fatiha
teach it to one individual and make it in a manner that they have to teach it to one individual as well. So at least after he passed away, this will continue to benefit to be the heat's on. Then the third and last thing, the message of a loss of a lot of audiences I mentioned is a righteous child that will make up for you, a righteous child, that will make up for you. And this is the importance of getting out of debt to our children, in terms of knowing who Allah is, in terms of knowing about the accuracy. And in terms of the importance of making and knowing that your parents brought you into this world. They're the most deserving people of your good deeds. And this is, you know, a bit
of a tangent, but I want you to look at the understanding of a validity vertical. And the last line of dilemma. I know he said, If I was to ever backbite anyone, I would back by to my parents. They asked him like, you know, why would you do this or above command. And he said, because my parents are most deserving of my good deeds. And obviously,
he will never back up again. But he's given the example over here that the people most deserving of your good deeds are your parents, so make sure that you leave a portion of good deeds for them is that as well, a thought to think about. Now in terms of the sort of kajaria, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam mentioned in another Hadith, seven particular things, seven particular things, and they did a lecture on this some time back, that you can look up on YouTube, inshallah, we will go through them probably seven particular things that will continue to benefit the person after they pass away. The first of them is that the individual teaches some knowledge. So we've discussed that
already. The second of them is that he makes a pathway for water to become facilitated for the people. So now, this is not so much an issue in Canada, because water comes through our taps over here. But if you look back home, in our native countries, whether it be in Africa, whether it be in the subcontinent, whether it be in East Asia, wherever it may be, water is not that easily accessible. So people need water irrigation, they need to facilitate pathways of water to come in. So if you can do that, within nighttime, that will be a Silicon Valley for you. The third thing you must enjoy the loss of a lot of audience and dimensions is the building of a world, the building of
a world. So if you can build a wealth for people, even after you pass away, and when people drink from it, it will be a wonderful journey for you. And I want to briefly talk about the world over here. People don't understand the significance of this, our predecessors have came up with a lot, they gave me a lot of importance to building a world up until Barack Obama speaking about wells, he said, anyone who has an illness, let him build a wealth for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For the one who grants life to the people will be the one that grants life to you. Meaning that when you build a wealth for people, you're building life for that, meaning that you're granting them life
through drinking water to cooking through taking care of their animals to taking care of their plants, so you're granting them life and when you granted life to the people unless animals animal grants left to you. So you mentioned this particular anyone has a long term ailment or long term sickness, let him build a wall for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he will, you know, take care of that this was all good. But this was also one of the advices or one of the other predecessors, that for people who are unable to have children, it was recommended for them that they would build a world that they grabbed life to the people and almost kind of what Allah will grant
life through them as well with rights honor. So the third thing that is mentioned is the building of a world. The fourth thing that is mentioned is the planting of a tree, the planting of a tree. And you know that trees are multifaceted. Trees are used for shade trees are used for what trees are used for fruit trees are used as barriers, your trees are used for many things. So the finding of a tree will be a southern kajaria for you as well. The fifth thing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions is that he builds a Masjid, he builds a Masjid. So as you know, the building of the masajid people come to pray here, people come to learn, people come to you know,
make people come just to have their willingness and their ECOWAS is a place of gathering the people it will continue to benefit you as well. Number six, the message of a law civil law news and dimensions is that he gives a Muslim he gives a Quran as a gift. He gives a Koran as a gift. And this is one of the greatest gifts that you can use online, you know, back then it was difficult, because the core eyes want to print and deliver things that people wrote out on their hands on shoulders, on bones on you know, scraps of leather, that is how the Quran would be passed on within our day and age, giving a quote as a gift, making sure that people read it, you'll be delighted as a
great source of energy. And this is something just as a reminder to myself and to you that I want you to think about since Ramadan. Where is your Quran? Where is your Quran? Like right now if I was to ask everyone that has a cell phone, where is your cell phone, you would know where it is either it's with you it's at home, it's in the car, you know where it is, but where is your arm? And you'll notice that the biggest problem here is that people do not even have a personal copy of the Koran anymore that you know will come to the machine to read Koran will have one core for the family. But where is your personal
So I know that Allah has facilitated for you carry it in your bags, have it on your phones, wherever it is, you should know where it is even more than where you know your your phone is. Because your phone is a connection to the world, your core, it is your connection to Allah, and it connections your afternoon. And I asked which one is more important. So you should know where it is the last day the seventh point, my dear, but it's just that the message of a loss of a lot of items that I mentioned, is that righteous child that a person leaves behind to make up for it. Now the last thing I want to talk about in terms of death is the responsibility of the community and taking care of the
families of the deceased, that you know, in our community, people are going to pass away, and the one that passes away should not feel you know, any soul or anxiety as he's passing away in terms of who's going to take care of their families. It is the responsibility of the community to take care of the family of the deceased, whether it be by providing them money, whether it be by providing them food, whether it be by providing them shelter, just to make sure that people are taken care of. And I'll tell you why you can do this for a very, very selfish reason. The sooner Allah subhanho wa Taala is the way that you treat people, it is the way that people will treat you. And this has been
proven throughout history, that the way you treat people is the way that was handled with the other one treats you so when you take care of the families of the deceased, then it Tada, Allah subhanaw taala will send someone to take care of your family as well when you pass away. So if you were to do it for no other reason, then that that your family is taken care of let that be the reason. So if you know of someone that has passed away, and they have left their families behind, do your utmost to take care of them.
whatever you can do to help out make sure you do it, just so that the lights are there. If you were to pass away, there's someone to take care of your family as well.
Now to proceed with our Tafseer of saltiness. Now, if you were to look at Solomon, as we mentioned last week that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent these two students down together, and who can remind me what the reason of revelation was? Why did Allah subhanaw taala send these two students down together? What had happened that caused a revolution of these two soldiers, who can remind me Go ahead.
Send it to soccer locker, magic was done upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I was finally done. I wanted to teach the puzzles to them and other people how to defend themselves against magic. And last week, we mentioned two virtues of sort of other consultants who can remind you of those two virtues or what were the two virtues of sort of file consultant ness.
We have like about 150 people, either Someone must remember something to virtues going to one day whatever.
I'll give you a hint, think about next time and think about
so it was how frequently the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite the Sula school, our high school and going out of business so not only with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam recited after Salah, but the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite them before he would go to bed, he would read them glow on his hands and then wipe over his body and then wipe over his bodies. So one of the first virtues is how frequently the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam used to recite these, what was the second virtue we mentioned, who had
never been revealed to any sense accent just look at that the previous nations were not given anything to ward off the evil eye and to ward off magic. So it was sent on this particular service as a blessing and as a gift to this oma to ward off these things as a blessing and as a gift to this Allah to ward off these things. So now let's get into soulfulness let us get into solidness so so tenacity begins with who you are, oh, Bella, bidness say I seek refuge with a lot the lord of mankind manikin as the King of mankind Illa He is the one who is worshipped or the God of mankind. Would you take these three verses together? Because they're all tied in together. So unless I know
what Allah He tells the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam again, pull out all the Filipinas say, I seek refuge in Allah, the Lord of all of mankind. So now, Allah subhana wa tada begins this tool again, by reminding by reminding the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam the importance of seeking spiritual refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So like we learned last week, at least the honor is physical, physical health is the other the thing of our Udo is a spiritual help. So that spiritual health is sought from Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentions that the Lord of all of mankind now why is others other mentioned the Lord
Of all of mankind. Because what ends up happening is that when one thinks about evil, when one thinks about fear, they become enslaved to that fear, they become enslaved to that concept of being overpowered. And that is why you think, you know, people who are overwhelmed by magic are overwhelmed by Jim be so easily fall into innovation, they so easily fall into shape, because they want to do anything to get out of that predicament. Allah subhanho wa Taala he starts off by saying, The Lord of all of mankind for a particular reason, and that is that that thing that you are afraid of Allah subhanho wa Taala is even the lord of that thing, as well as being your Lord. So more
powerful than that thing that you are afraid of, is almost a kind of an honor to seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And do not be afraid of that thing. And that is why I was handling to Allah mentions the Lord of all of mankind. Now the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it encompasses two or three main concepts. So when you talk about the Lord, when you talk about a rug, and the Arabic language, it means the Lord is someone that creates the Lord is someone that creates, he is someone that sustains so meaning that not only does he bring it into life, but he maintains it as well. And then the third thing is the sign of a true Lord is that it has unconditional behavior, meaning that
everything is subjugated to the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the laws almost all the time. And I remember, you know, I was reading
like a Christian website, if you want to call it that yesterday, and it was talking about, you know, the sun and how people should be grateful or giving like the sun. So this Christian preacher is talking about, you know, look at the sun each morning it rises, and it gives to the earth and the earth doesn't even say thank you and doesn't give anything back to the sun, we should be like the sun. Now I'm thinking like this, you know, the sun has no feelings, it has no emotions, it does not care whether you know, it gives or takes it is the Krishna Hello that was created to act like this. So while it sounds like such a nice example, but the more you think about it the how futile this
example is because this is like you know, giving and taking having a motion is a human characteristic. It is a human characteristic. So now the reason why I mentioned this is that when we talk about subjugation to the laws of Allah subhana wa Tada, I want you to think about the distance that the earth travels around the sun, and the distance that the moon rotates, did the moon ever do? Sorry, the sun rotates? Does it ever take a day off? No, it doesn't. Does it ever decided one day? I'm not going to come out? No, it doesn't. It is subjugated by the laws of the island. Now similarly our lives there are elements and aspects of them that are subjugated purely by the laws of Allah.
When you came into this world, did you have a decision? Hey, I'm going to leave my mother's stomach today. And I've been here long enough. No, you didn't have that decision. Likewise, when you leave this world, is it Hey, I've had enough of this life, you'll let me move on to the next life. No, it isn't. We are all subjugated by the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the sign of a troll up and you will see the next two points are directly related to this. So Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to say many keenness the king of all of mankind. So it is a continuation, that I seek refuge in the lord of mankind, I seek refuge in the king of all of mankind. Now why does Allah subhanho wa
Taala mentioned king in this verse, The king has two primary roles, one is true ownership of everything. And the true Rob will have true ownership of everything mean that he will own everything. And that is why when you look not only in this DNA, but look into here after as well, I was asked on one of the very first questions and in magic and the data that I am the king and I'm the one that you will be paying your debts to. And where are the people who used to claim to be kings on that day. And you will say the man is will call you that who is the dominion and the kingdom for today to point out that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the true king. And the second reason
that was fine with the eliminations king over here again is to show the true obedience of us panels that are on that day when people are standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala Can anyone say to Allah, Oh Allah, you know, I'm tired of standing I've I'm sweating, can you please start the day of judgment? Or Oh Allah give me shade or Allah grant me this? No, you can't. Because the ultimate authority on that day is for Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. So let's find out it reminds us of that, that no matter how many kings you have, no matter how many rulers or you have, the King of all kings is a must handle. It's either an ultimate rulership and ultimate obedience is to Allah subhanho wa
Taala alone. The third thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions, he goes on in the continuing sentence, and I seek refuge illa hiddenness in the Lord are the object of worship, of all of mankind, the object of worship of all of mankind.
Another reason why I was kinda like the other mentioned this is that once you realize that Allah subhanaw taala created everything and sustains everything, and then a lot owns everything and everything answers to Allah alone, it necessitates that you realize that it is only one that has all of these characteristics that is worthy of our worship that is worthy of our worship. And that is why I left and went down dimensions illa hiddenness over here, because all of these characteristics necessitate that you worship the one that has all these characteristics. Another reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions ilahi ness over here is to show us that the act of is the other the act
of saying I will be left in the street ontology is an act of worship. The act of saying I want to be left in the street ontology is an act of worship, that when you say the statement, you're incurring reward from Allah subhanaw taala, you're incurring closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it is a reminder that don't think that is just about purely you benefiting in terms of protection, but rather This is an act of Riba that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with so there is an understanding of the first three verses, so receiving refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then in the next set of verses, who are you seeking refuge from Who are you
seeking refuge from Allah subhana wa Taala goes on to say mensural was was in finance from the evil of Allah was was unkindness, so evil. We talked about evil last week, and how in Islamic philosophy, there is no such thing as something that is absolute and pure evil than even in the presence of shavonne. There is goodness that comes about in terms of that when we fight off the whispers of a shade bond, and leads us to performing good deeds and getting close to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that is the concept to people. We discussed that last week, you can revise that last week. Now we get to an was was an alpha nurse, and was was is a name for shaken. And in fact, it is the most
common attribute of a shaper. So this concept, or this name of what was a comes from the attribute of West USA, which is to whisper something, which is to whisper something. Now when you whisper something, you use it in a low voice. And if you're a really good whisper, if you not whisper really well, no one should be able to detect it. So you will stand close to someone, you whisper into their ears, and no one around them will be able to hear or know what you whispered. Now I ask you, my dear brothers and sisters, is there anyone that is as good as this as shaper? That will shaytaan whispers to one of us does the other person know what she thought was the other individual Not at all. So
this is like his profession. And this is why even though he mentioned that, even though this is an attribute of shape on, it is more like a name or a title for him. So unless was a title or a name for simple due to how proficient he is and whispering to others, due to how professional he is at whispering to others. Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to describe him with something else. And kindness. And kindness is something that disappears, meaning that it's here one second, and it disappears the next second. And I want to bring in the scene from a movie here. For those of you who were born in the 80s or 90s. You may remember this 2000 and later you may be too old. How can people
remember the usual suspects and you remember Usual Suspects? Only a few of you. Okay, I remember, you know, in high school, this is one of my favorite movies just because of this one line. So they have this character in the movie. He's a fictional character. They call him Kaiser associate. You guys remember that? Kaiser Suozzi. So Kaiser still is in, he's being interviewed by the police. He's stuck. There's no way he's getting out of this. And he just keeps on making a story after another just reading all the pictures that are on the cops wall.
And then he tells the people after that, you know, the greatest trick the devil ever played, was making the people believe he didn't exist. So that was the greatest trick of Satan. And he made you believe that he did not exist as Panama do this is what I was telling us every year, that just because people can't see shaitan he's made people believe that he does not exist. And that is what will come next is that he is someone that just disappears, you cannot see him, but he is there in terms of its effect. He's there in terms of its effect, and that is what hardness is it is the one that disappears. And this is a second attribute for shaytaan. It is a second attribute for straight
on that he disappears. So now the question arises, what are the whispers of shaytaan? And what makes shavon disappear? What are the whispers of shavon? And what makes Trayvon disappeared? Well, those of you who attended my football last week at Edmonton triage two weeks ago over here, we talked about the traps of Shakedown. So shaytaan has seven ultimate goals that he wants individuals to achieve. So in terms of you on an individual level,
He has seven goals that he wants to achieve. And he's not going to give up until he achieves these seven goals. So it is first an ultimate goal is that you commit share kofod with Allah subhanaw taala. Time is first an ultimate goal is that you as an individual, you want you to come and shoot and go for with Allah subhanho wa Taala. If he can get you to do that, he wants you to fall into innovation. And we can't get you to fall into innovation. He wants you to fall into a major sin. If he can get you to fall into a major sin. He wants you to fall into a minor See, if he can get you to fall into a minor sin. He wants you to be wasting your time and suddenly permissible. So you know
watching the news, reading the news, watching sports, just wasting your time staying away from productivity. And if he can get you to be preoccupied with something permissible. He wants you to do the lesser of the two deeds. So someone right now and no offense if you're watching this at home, though, someone may think you know what, I can watch this Hanukkah at home. Let me just watch it at home. Why do I need to come to the masjid. But coming to the machine you missed the the father of praying in July, you missed the puzzle of praying and Gemma, so she thought what the rest of you us, you get the pleasure of watching the other hand benefiting from the Hanukkah, but you missed the
edge of the Gemma. So that is the sixth step. And the seventh step is that if she can get you do any of these things, that is when shaytaan unleashes his troops on you mean that he will have his troops from the ends and from the gym, they will gather together and they will find a way to make your life miserable, slandering you cursing you just making things difficult, just making things difficult for you in general. So these are the seven objectives or shape and analysis what you have to realize that, you know, imagine if this was a real word, you know, for those of you who played Call of Duty and all these other games, this is like shake thoughts tactical plan, that at each step he's trying
to attack you. So the you know, this is where he's coming from. So now the question arises. Now the question arises, what are the tools that shaytan is going to use to get you to fall into these traps? What are the tricks and tools that you don't want to use to get you to fall into these traps, and those are generally four, those are generally four. So there's seven traps that he has, and the tools that he gets to do them are for. Number one is that he beautify since he makes sins look so beautiful to Panama. And I want you to think about, you know, the marketing ads for the major crimes in this world. Think about, you know, alcohol, they'll get the world's most beautiful women and be
like, hey, if you drink, I'm not gonna mention a particular name, you could get sued, but it's between this brand of alcohol, you know, up with this girl, think of what cigarettes you know, something that is killing you, as you're doing it. You know, if you smoke our cigarette we'll be supporting on the beach under the sun, you know, the beautified? What do you think this comes from? It comes from shaper. And related to this very point. You know, I want you to look at the history of mankind, the look at how far we've evolved to do evolved the way you want to look at it. That you know, up until I would say the 1930s 1940s. fo over ankles. She's considered a prostitute. They were
the way you would distinguish a prostitute from a regular woman is that she would show her ankles with the bottom of her legs. And now you know some kind of law. This is a report from like three or four years ago in Montreal. There is like a complaint filed by the the prostitutes that we are unable to get business anymore, because we have no way to distinguish ourselves. And they stood up all different industry which is not going to get into but they were unable to distinguish themselves. Where did this come from? It came from shavon because she'd been beautified to this sin, she thought beautified this sin and there's a hadith that is very commonly misinterpreted. And when
a woman leaves her house shaped one becomes a companion. So you know, you'll get the feminist movement think that, you know, Muslim men are saying that women are always accompanied by the devil. It will kinda he goes on to explain this Hadith, that this lady has nothing to do with the woman whatsoever. It has to do with the men, they when a woman leaves her house, she thought beautifies this woman to the man and it becomes a fitna and a temptation. And that is the correct understanding of this Heidi, that she taught to defy sin. So that is the first tool that you will use. The second tool that shavon will use is that he will cause doubts in your mind, that the messenger of a loss of
love, I'll use them as reported by whatever the other one is that shaytaan comes to a person in his moment of weakness, and he gets into question things he should not be questioning. So he starts to question who created this, who created that, and then eventually gets to who created a muscle.
And you have to realize that man's intellect It was created by Allah and like our bodies in terms of strength, even our intellects, they have limits. So there are certain things that you should not be questioning. So she thought it will cause doubts in your mind. Hey, you know, if the Quran is so true, then why doesn't everybody accept it? You know, think that they were tardy things like that. Those are from shavon. So she comes to cause doubts in your mind. So that is the second trick you will use. The third trip that she uses is that he will cause you to forget if you look at the story of Moses
And the young boy circling car, what happened over there musasa. And he goes on to say that it was shaped on that made me forget. So she thought it will make you forget things, whether related to your dunya or related to your appeal, it was productive of sheet one cannot get you to do something bad, you will get you to forget. And this is one of the tricks that our predecessors taught us that whenever you forget something of importance, pray to lockers, because they remind you at that time, what that thing of importance was, is anything to distract you. And that is what she found us. And this is a you know, who knows the best authentic story is when a man came to know Barney formula.
And he said that, oh, man, you know, I had this money that I had, but I can't remember where it is. So the amount he tells him will pray to like us. And the magic like, you know, what am I going to achieve? But she said just don't do it. I promise you, you will remember where it is. So the very first look at the man's prayer. He remembers where it is he gets so happy he can control the salon anymore. So it goes back to the 90s. And Didn't I tell you find it? Sorry. He's like, how did you not find he's like this is a trick that she does when using for years, that as soon as someone sees themselves in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala shaytan will find something to distract him. So
should not ever mix you forget something, pray to Allah, you will remember what is. The fourth and last technique or tool that shavon will use is that he will make you worried about things. So things that happen in the future, and grieve over the things that happened in the past. This is like one of Shannon's ultimate tools that you made a mistake in the past you committed a sin in the past, she thought will make you feel like you could never be forgiven. Like you will always be a hypocrite you'll always be someone that is sinful. And this is from Satan. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala tells you that whenever you repent, Allah subhanaw taala will forgive your sins, no matter how nice
you've committed, even if they're like perform on the sea. Even if there is greatness between the heavens and the earth. As long as a person sincerely repent to Allah, Allah will forgive him for the past. And in terms of the future, chiffon makes you worried about how will you achieve these tasks? You know, you don't have the tools to do it. You don't have the tools to be great. You're just a lay man, you were created to be a nobody in this room, someone agreed to be forgotten. And this is from shaitan as well. If you look at the bottom of my heart, what is what Anna, tell the Muslims on that day, he tells them that you can will shape follow your home with Odia that it is shaped on who makes
his close companions fearful. So if you notice that you're fearful of other than Allah subhanho wa Taala know that it is from Shakedown, there's almost no one to Allah. He goes on to say that do not fear Satan, but rather fear me if you're indeed believers. So if your fear is of other than Allah subhanho wa Taala know that you have been deceived by sheep on the ship and makes you worry about the future. He makes you think that you're uncapable of doing things, but rather less kind of mozzarella, with his help has created you with capability and ability to do whatever you like capability and ability to do whatever you like. And just look at the ledger of the progress of
alumni themselves. without a shadow of a doubt. We know that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most influential person throughout history. He has, there's no prophet that has a bigger gathering than the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment, would look at where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came from. He was born as an orphan. His parents died his people, the people who took care of him died, he was poor, he was unable to read and write. Yet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became the most dignified person in history. If we were to plan it, we wouldn't be able to plan it as perfectly, because Allah
subhanho wa Taala was handling that situation and taking care of him. So any fears you have in your life, whether it be in terms of the profession you want to achieve, you know, a business that you want to start some type of project that you want to do to benefit the community. Do not be overwhelmed by fear and overcome by fear, but put your trust in Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhana wa tada will take care of it. And that is why in the verses that we were setting in select the level of concern of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he tells the Messenger of Allah, do not worry about the plots and plans of the Muslim school and the polytheists and the hypocrites but rather put your
trust in Allah and Allah is sufficient as a trustee. So those are the tools and tactics that she found uses. Now how does one go protecting themselves against shape one? And the reason why this comes into play is because the question arises, what is it that makes shape and disperse? What is it that makes shape on one way? So one of the first Heidi's that we know what she found running away is that the giving of the attack, so when we are done is given the Messenger of Allah so Allah says that as soon as the event starts to be given, then she runs away, and as soon as the dance stops, then shavon comes back to disrupt the people. Another thing that makes you bond going away is the
state of our Shakeology. Then as soon as you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala shaytaan flees from that gadget. The state of the batsman the message of a loss of long lines
teaches us that the one who says Bismillah before he enters his house and Bismillah before he eats shaitaan has no place to stay no no food to eat that night. And obviously the recitation of the Quran, certain Baccarat in particular, I too could see inside certain buckler, the last two verses from certain documentary Settings and select the mother, all these verses in particular, they make shape on the way, the recitation of their last three points, Columbo Allah had when I was available. And when I was a bit of bidness, they make shapes on the runway. So these are things to remember to make shape on the way and this is an attribute of shape, and he will disappear and almost no other
taught us how to make him disappear. Then we'll move on to the last two verses. And with that, we'll conclude and open up the floor for question and answers is that Allah subhana wa tada goes on to say, and then he was supposed to feel so loneliness, misogyny and the oneness, that he is the one who whispers inside the chest of men. He is the one who whispers inside the chest of mankind. Why is it was mentioned the whispering inside the chest of mankind. It is because the chest is the home of where the heart is. And it is the heart that shape on tries to affect the most. Because when your heart is weak, when your heart is disattached, from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is when she
finally starts winning his bonus. So the whispers have shaped on the Start by attacking the heart first. So anything that will make the heart weak, anything that will receive the heart, anything that will bring blackness to the heart, she thought is trying to do and that is why I was mentioned in the chest of mankind. The last thing in this very last verse, Allah subhanho, wa Taala goes on to say, meaning dignity, oneness, that literally it means from mankind, from the gym, and for mankind. But if you look at the context of this world, what is our spinal data trying to tell us in this story? That are we seeking refuge from the sharpener intervals in May that are we seeking refuge in
a lot from the shape of the human beings and to the gym? Or are we saying, or are we saying I seek refuge in a lot from the whispers that she taught first in the chest of mankind? And virgin? So do you guys understand the difference between the two? No, let's go through it again.
Unless I know what the answer is in the last verse, mineral agility, oneness, that from the jinn and of mankind. Why does
this mean what is the goal that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to achieve over here is
trying to tell us that the one who whispers is of two kinds, the shouting ends, and the sharpener, Jin is that the first objective? There's two possibilities. That is Scenario number one, that is telling us that the sales team are of two types, the shell, and the shell, Tina and Jim, or Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us something else, that shavon has the ability to whisper inside the chest of mankind, and the jinn. So these are the two possible scenarios and the two linguistic interpretations of this verse. But one of them is correct, and one of them is, and the correct one is the first one, that the ones that do the whispering can be from the shouting that ends and the
shouting and cheering, because we have no proof to show that the shouting whisper amongst themselves. And linguistically, the term gin does not come under the word nuts. So the word gin does not come under the word knifes. There's almost no diagnosis fuse to goodness in the chest of men. But the term that's over here does not accompany the word surgeon. That is where it says that it is the first opinion that is correct, that the one that does the whispering is the shotgun and its engine. And it is not the second opinion that the one who is whispered to is the ends and the gym. So I hope you guys understand that.
The last thing I want to mention is that what this we were doing this in the beginning is what is the word nuts mean? What is the term nice, comfortable? And there are two predominant opinions in terms of the word n'est pas? We start off in the beginning called alveolar bidness. Let's say I seek refuge in the lord of mankind. We translators and mankind in English within the Arabic language, what does it mean? There are two predominant opinions that Allah mentions in terms of nurse. He says that the first opinion is that the word nurse comes from something that is seen. The word nurse is something that is seen as opposed to the word gin, which is something which is hidden. So the first
thing is that NAS is something that is seen as opposed to the word gin, which is something which is hidden. Then the second thing that it only mentions is that the word nurse comes from that which moves physically and a tray and internally. So what does that mean exactly? If you were to look at an animal
Does it move physically? Yes, it does. When does it move internally? What does that mean? When
we're talking about internal movement over here, I know what you're going to say. He's talking about the movement of the heart, in terms of the heart getting closer to a lot. And further from Allah subhana wa Tada. So I've had I hadn't gotten involved in that is what he is referring to. So the nurse is referring to that anyone that can physically and spiritually get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. So the animals and the plants, they only have the physical element, where as it is the human being and the jinn that have the spiritual element. So the two most predominant opinions about the word NES is number one, it is something that is seen. And number two, it is something that has a
physical and a spiritual movement. And with that will conclude a lot with a lot more Silicon Valley.
We'll open the floor for five questions. And then I have two announcements, given my time. Go ahead. Oh, so you're saying about pay of debt? Yes. You said to make a pathway for water is the water free freshwater,
water that's usable, so people can drink from it and benefit from it. So it shouldn't be water that's polluted, or painted or anything like that.
in terms of the wealth that
we make for the benefit of our parents, or our parents, so there should be something that needs to be decided.
Nope, just whenever either you can take the wall yourself, if you have the ability to do that. Or when you make worried you give the money for the world, you make the intention, and this is for myself or for my family, or whoever you're doing it for. You don't have to make the intention. You don't have to say anything.
Because number three, number three
is the best whisper. Like, they
can relate to each other, like other bad people, like last fall, okay. So that, like people like they can, like try to do like shake on images. availa. Like, for stuff
like people like us to like,
like, do this was like him?
I mean, not to that degree, human beings are able to whisper lectured on, like, there's no as far as I know, there's no concept islamically as telepathic communication, that I think something all of a sudden you start thinking and you start doing it. Whereas from a human perspective, if I want you to do something bad other talents to you, or show you how to do it. And that is how a person becomes from the shouting and hints that he tells people to do evil deeds, or it shows them how to do evil deeds, that is when a person becomes the sharpener.
different between these tritone with
radius. So the last two bars
from the gene and is, is this, Satan can only play with these two kinds,
and the human are affected by these two.
Yes. So that's the reason
those people are involved with the show.
Yes, because they are the ones that have the ability to cause doubts and to do the plots of shape. Meaning that the animals they are they're not affected by shape. There's no concept of mahabhava meaning that they'll not be judged by the hereafter. Whereas the human beings will say Todd will come and whisper to the ants in the gym. That is what Allah subhanaw taala is telling us.
Now I know you guys have a lot of questions, we'll have a general rule that we only do five questions. So I'd rather have you guys the last question. All other questions, you can come to me after the class and then make the announcements in chunks.
Yeah, it's the same thing. So as soon as you say, I will be back in the sheetala gym. This is from, you know, this guy, the ministry Athena, essentially, Athena engine. So it's the same thing. So there are I mean, there's two concepts.
misunderstand, there's the person that becomes possessed by shavon. And then he calls the people to evil. So the example of this is that if you look in, in the scene of the Prophet setup, and the early days of Mecca, the Quraysh, they used to gather in this place called data network. Do you guys remember data network studies? So in the phrase used to gather together, and they were coming up with a plan, in terms of what they could do with a messenger bot? So this individual, he walks in a very old man, no one knows who he is. But since he's old, they respect him. So he's sitting in the middle of the gathering, and someone mentions, you know what, we'll start spreading rumors about the
messenger of us in the last minute. So this man, he says, You know what, that's not a good opinion. Another individual says, You know what, we'll see
Start harming the companions of the Messenger of Allah. And he says, You know what, that is not a good opinion. And this continues happening until they come to the conclusion that you know what, let us kill the Messenger of Allah, Allah. Then this man says, You know what, that is the best opinion, that is what you guys should do. So this person who was possessed by Sheikh Hamza she been physically took over his body. And, you know, that's what he did. So this is one concept. Another concept is that there are naturally people who don't need to be possessed by shape on to be evil, that they're just, you know, due to bad tarbiyah due to not controlling their nerves. They're bad,
bad people. You know, that's just the nature of things. So when you say, you know, I was relying on origin, you're seeking refuge from the first category, people who are possessed by a thought, and they were scared to do the stupid things in terms of the second category. If you know people who do bad things, it is upon you to distance yourself from them, that don't be their company. So that's the difference between the two. I hope that helps. inshallah Allah, Allah knows best was a lot more cinematic I'd
to make two announcements during the entire announcement. Number one is that we have the sun had conference this week. So for those of you with families, please make sure you attend It's Friday night is for the whole families. And then Saturday is for the sisters only for more details, they can check the ISC website via the lights on. The second announcement is in terms of the holiday. Next week, the HELOC will start at 730. In the heat island, I want to keep it like that till the end, because there's brothers who attend to a different time of Edmonton children did with a laptop, and they will complain that you know, we can't come and attend. So we're going to try to accommodate
them. So every week from now on with my father, this halaqa will start on Wednesday nights at 730.
And again, I remind you, please make sure you sign up for the emailing list. Because if there's ever like an emergency cancellation or emergency change of location, or I need you guys to bring something or watch something before you come sign up to the email industry, you will have that information as well. You do that by going to isc.ca and on the right hand side, I believe you can sign up for the mailing list and
have a great week.
