Aloha, aloha Miranda main home barakallahu li walakum and Hakeem when finally we're at with Kim lahoma Tabitha angle mo TV, La ilaha illallah wa la Miranda, Mira, Latina, ramadasa the hot water was opened up, what are some of the sub mineral I mean, in today's brief for branch, Allahu taala, I'll attempt to share some reflections with you from sort of foresee that so to say that is the 41st surah of the Quran and the center of the conversation I'd like to have with you inshallah, tada and this is the 30th I have, the sooner the sooner begins. And throughout its, you know, its initial discourse, the sutra talks actually about previous nations and their failures, and how even in the
in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. There are people that are just they're just not willing to listen to the message of the Quran. One of the most interesting I attend the surah is actually one of the things one of the tactics that disbelievers used to ignore the message of the Quran
lattice not only have Anwar lol fi, but listen to this Quran and make noise, and just do distracting things when it's being recited by local people so that you can be you can dominate. So the idea was, when the krons being talked about, things get serious, the topic the discussion is serious. Well, the way to do that two ways to avoid, you know, getting serious and having to deal with the demands of this book is just create a distraction, start talking about something else, start raising your voices, so nobody else can listen, either. These kinds of tactics are mentioned other nations and their destruction is mentioned. And then the subject matter switches in the surah and allows those
and starts talking about the consequences of this kind of behavior in previous nations. And why do you people encourage Why do you think you're going to be any kind of exception and so judgment you know, judgment is mentioned Hellfire, as mentioned, and the I began with actually the 29th ayah is something that disbelievers are going to say on Judgement Day. Well, Connor Medina cafaro robina Arena Medina about Nana Amina Genie, well ns monster shows those who misguided us and that has made this they call this member amiah meaning show us those who guided us we mean to say shows the people who misguided us among the gems and among the human beings, because they're the ones who misled us.
And interestingly enough to mention the jinn first because human beings were not able to see the jinn. Right? So they blame an unseen force, and then eventually other human beings that must have misguided us because it couldn't possibly have been our fault. The issue that's being highlighted here is a lack of personal responsibility. People are ending up in hellfire. And even as they're about to be thrown into hellfire. They're not willing to say yet our fault. We're the ones who messed up. We didn't listen, we didn't take it seriously. We weren't the ones that were saying don't listen to this client just make noise instead. Instead, even though they're saying show us the gyms
and the human beings that got us here.
We could we could trample them, we can put them under our feet means let us stomp on them. Let us punish them for what they did to us. So Panama this, this this image doesn't even comment in the air about what his response to that is. It is simply a mockery. It is simply a mention of this idiotic behavior, the consequences of which will be these people are burning in Hellfire and they're asking ALLAH and by the way in the in Quran elsewhere, Allah has already told us you know, nobody will listen to them. Nobody will ever look at them without
Through Illuminati amati, Allah was that was I won't even look towards them on Judgment. So they're just talking to themselves really, even if they're saying that.
Even if they're saying, there's a lack of personal responsibility on behalf of the carpet, I wanted to begin with this, because actually, the subject I'm talking about today is not the disbeliever. It's the believer. The IOP that are coming that I want to talk to you about are about believers. They're about Muslims. But they mentioned in sharp contrast of this aspect of disbelief, the aspect of disbelief that seeks to blame others for one's problems. This is a very common attitude, unfortunately, even among many Muslims, hopefully, you're not one of them. And I'm not one of them. And that attitude is, you know, I'm messing up as a Muslim. But let me tell you, I have a whole
bunch of reasons. And I have a whole bunch of lists of criminals that are actually the real culprit, I'm actually innocent, it's society's fault. It's the pressure. It's my workplace. It's my financial situation. It's my family. I was raised this way, what can I do it shape on man, he gets me every time it's not my fault. His I don't know what it is, I just can't help myself. So you live behind these excuses. You refuse to take responsibility for who you for what you're supposed to be. This is the thing that's being criticized for the kuffaar. And Allah is teaching us that they are in such denial that they can't even be accepted about themselves who they are, that even on Judgement Day,
they're asking a lot not for forgiveness, but for those who misled them. Those who they want to blame and want to punish them and what you know, and they want to make them the lowest ones. Now in contrast, Allah mentions the Muslim and he says in the Latina collarbone Allah, no doubt those who said, Our Master is Allah. Understand that this is McCann surah is a makin makin Quran being revealed, and in Macau was very hard to be a Muslim. It wasn't easy. It wasn't just like accepting a religion, you came with a lot of social consequences. There are very bad things that happened to you, within your family, and within your neighborhood. And in that society, in general, if it comes
out that you're a Muslim. So it's not easy to be a Muslim. And even if you are Muslim, it's probably in your best interest to keep it quiet, to not talk about it to not let anybody know, too Even if you are in Istanbul and it secretly, I mean, probably all of you are familiar with the students of the Quran, like, you know, the the sister of Omar Abdullah, who tada and who used to live, you know, who used to live on secretly, and he found out that she's become a Muslim. Obviously, that's because she hadn't declared it yet. And it's understandable because it came with a lot of you put yourself in the line of fire is very dangerous, to accept that, you know, to declare to that society that
you'd become a Muslim. But in this particular passage, Allah highlights the courage of the believers when they basically came out and said, that they're believers. They're not they're not just closet, Muslims, if you will. They're not just hiding their Islam, they've actually come out and they've declared their Islam. So a lot in this passage. It doesn't just say in the Medina Islam, he says in a Latina con, la buena, LA,
aka de Perak,
he highlighted the code of the word. There's no doubt about it, those who declared those who said somehow
they announced it, and they weren't afraid to announce it. They weren't afraid to let the world know, our master is Allah or Buddha Allah? What a statement, you know, and later on, In this video, we're going to see, you know what we think when somebody announces their Islam, they will say I'm a Muslim in any universe living, I'm from among the Muslims, and are Muslim. But that's not their first declaration. Interestingly enough, their first declaration is Allah, our masters Allah, this is important to understand, because it takes a lot of courage to declare Islam, what will that courage come from? That courage will come from the recognizing and then declaring out loud that you
have someone who will protect you, and who will protect you as your
master, these people have no authority over you, the fit the family, that you're afraid of the neighbors, that you're afraid of the leaders of courage that you're afraid of the hooligans that you're afraid of? The economic pressures that you're afraid of that are gonna come at you. None of them are masters over you, they don't control you. They have nothing on you, the one who have authority over you is your real rub, which allows you to remove yourself from all other fears in under the Nakano. Allah is a very heavy statement in the Quran. And it's something that Muslims really each and every one of us really deeply has to think about what is Allah highlighting here?
When he says in the Medina call upon Allah, I want to spend a little bit of time just on this phrase. First of all, the inner like even our show, Rahim Allah says brilliantly, that there are in those used to remove doubt leaves us with a shock, it's removed, it removes doubt. And it's also turkey then it's used as a matter of emphasis, just to burn the coal for even more the previous iOS about the disbelievers and now they're just
Believers are being told, let me tell you on the opposite end, there's absolutely there are people that are not going to regret their decision. And these are the only ones that are going to be safe on Judgement Day. May Allah make us of them. And then Allah says Allah Vina, this is called an assemble soon in the Arabic language. I'll probably try not to make this an Arabic lesson. But I want to derive some benefits from the Arabic of the ayah. And that is used when you are specific men in the Arabic use in Arabic language. Another Islam also is used when you're being ambiguous. There are places in the Quran where Allah opens the conversation talks about Muslims Bellarmine Aslam,
Elijah hula, hula hula mercy known men as Lama,
men as Lama for Mangia Mangia affiliate for whoever wants to believe whoever wants to disbelieve that clip, let them do it. Whoever wants they can believe whoever wants they can disbelieve money is used to open the door to make it ambiguous whoever
like but the Prophet says some money
behind the lights open. And levy and Lavina. This is very specific. And what we're learning in this ayah is Allah is making a big deal out of these people. And those recognizing that it's not a small thing, that they come out and declared Islam and the but just by saying that the seeing itself is an act of courage. So Allah has special recognition for the Muslim, who despite the pressures in his society, or her society is willing to stand up for this love anyway. That is a special recognition by a law just in the world and Edina when he highlights Carlota Bonilla, even if they did that, once they declared, they came out in the open and they said our masters Allah, this phrase when you when
you declare the mastery to Allah, I've mentioned this in several talks before but I repeat myself because it's important in this in this hotma is the highest position one can attain. None of us are truly ever going to be above in the Arabic language, you can use it up for even owner of a house, you can set up debate. You could say that, but in the absolute sense, there's only one club. And the lowest position as possible in the Arabic language is odd, is the lowest position possible. slavery. When you and I declare a lot of love automatically, we have declared ourselves as it is as much a statement about a lot as it is about ourselves. It's an acknowledgement that I am enslaved to Allah
azza wa jal, I am a servant, I am a slave, I am at his service, I have the lowest possible position before him. But you know what everybody else thinks of slavery. Anybody else in any other context other than Islam, when they think of slavery, they think of losing your freedom.
They think of being oppressed. They think of tyranny. They think of being forced to do something you don't want to do. These are the thoughts that come in my in the mind when you think of the word slavery, it's an ugly word. It's an ugly word. But the beauty of the of the idea of a law and a Baba and the idea of the slave, big us becoming slaves, is that it frees us this way, you and I become slaves of a lot and you're free from every other form of slavery, you're no longer a slave to fashion, and no longer a slave to your appetites, the number of slave to societal pressure, the enormous leap to economic worries, all of the things that shackle humanity and enslave humanity,
you've just been freed from them. You're just you're not you're not worried about that anymore. It doesn't get to you like it gets to anybody else. It is the ultimate Declaration of Independence, if you will. That's what vanilla is. And I specifically want the youth to hear this. It's interesting. You know, before I came to the United States, I came to the United States as a teenager. But before I came to the United States, I was under the impression you know, constantly on TV and media and movies and things like that. You hear Land of the Free freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of thought, etc is a free country. You hear this all the time, you know, we love our freedom
in America and I when I came to high school here at first I was like you know because I went to high school in the Muslim world or elementary schools middle someone that is uniform and boys and girls are separate and you know there's a structure and there's there's assembly in the morning that looks like the military training. You know, it looks like that but you don't have such a thing in America you've got a high school it's a free for all it's like being at the mall is crazy. And you walk in and there's a kid with his feet up on a chair and the other kids chewing gum How are
you know, chewing gum in the classroom and it's all good. But he's you can't see anything. And two guys are talking to each other worse, boy and girl talking to each other and I wouldn't describe any further. Free culture right? Has a free country. But after a while we start realizing something all the goth kids hang together. All the hip hop kids hang together. All the heavy metal kids look the same. All the geeks are the same. They sit on the same team.
At the at lunch, everybody's almost got a uniform. there even certain brands you're supposed to we're not supposed to wear.
There's actually a kind of fashion and cultural and cliquish slavery,
for free, they don't really know, they have to go first they're enslaved to fit into one thing or another. There's one thing interesting about America that you don't find in many places in the world, you go to if you go to school at some point of the Muslim world, like you go to school in Malaysia, or you go to school in Pakistan or something as a kid, you could be fat, you could be short, you can be tall, you could win, nobody cares. You are who you are. You are who you are here. Everything about you is judged. Everything about you is commented on. And you're constantly you're overly conscious of yourself, your appearance, your accent, the color of your skin, you know, your
height, your weight, your physical appearance, Everything about you is scrutinized constantly, and you're constantly thinking as a young person in school we're causing Where do I fit, I need to fit in, I can't, you know, I need to find someplace to be where I can just belong. And so our youth, so many of our youth, they become enslaved to what they think is freedom. And they start dressing a certain way and talking a certain way and walking a certain way. And listening to certain kinds of music and hanging out with a certain kind of crowd, all thinking that is part of their freedom, but not even realizing they're just enslaved, to just in saved.
For those who feel that they have felt that slavery, I'm talking to them today. And I'm seeing a lot of zeros or honors those who can say I'm above this all in under Dino kalu, or bonala, our master is a lot
above it all, they have freed themselves from all of those shackles. You know, I want to raise my daughters and my sons with a different kind of mentality, I want them to be raised with the mentality of in the levena. collarbone, I haven't even gotten the famous takamiya just decree the Masters Allah, which means they owe nobody an explanation for who they are. They don't have to justify themselves to anybody. They don't have to explain themselves to anybody. They take full pride in being slaves of Allah, though proud of that, but what better place to be what better Can I be than a slave of Allah. And so we're gonna go in that now this is a reality in our times, there's
a girl that wears her job.
And she goes to high school public school. And people laugh at her. Some girls might even younger, a little bit, teacher might make comments about her and she's ashamed. And deep down inside, she feels bad about being listening. She doesn't even say to anybody, she's feels bad. She doesn't know who to talk to. And maybe the thought crosses your mind, man, these girls get to dress however they want. And everybody thinks they're so pretty. Everybody thinks I'm so ugly, I gotta be covered up all the time. I can't even dress the way I want. These thoughts crossed her mind, you know why these thoughts are crossing her mind. Because even though she may have been given an education that she
should put a job on, she wasn't given the education your masters a lot properly. Because when that education is given, then she walks down the same Island High School, and she looks at those other girls and says Subhanallah they are enslaved to the attention of men. They're enslaved to this fashion, they degrade themselves only so they can feel good about themselves. I can just serve a lie and feel good about myself. I don't have to please other human beings or meet their expectations, or just the way society wants me to dress or men like me to dress to for me to feel accepted. I already feel accepted by Allah. I feel I feel sorry for those girls that put themselves down like that.
That's harsh that the thoughts will change. You won't see yourselves as inferior, you will see yourselves as free while everybody else is enslaved. Allah azza wa jal says, you know, it's so beautiful in the language of Quran. When someone is enslaved, there are burdens on them. You know, like in the old image of a slave, they've got shackles on them, right? fetters on them, and they can't move because they have to carry large burdens. Like in slave societies were made to do heavy labor with allies, especially in a store that has so much area and it sort of says, You read a level and you have FIFA and Allah wants to lighten your burden. Allah wants to lighten take a load off of
you, you become my slave. Your Work your load does doesn't increase it decreases. When it gets easier for you not harder.
It gets easier for you you need to love yourself.
allowance is for you. He doesn't want difficulty for you. This is slavery to a lot you want an easier life. You turn to a lot less the other sad impression so many people have been within the Muslim community. There are so many Muslims who think if you become closer to religion, life will get hard. The closer you get to Islam, the more you take Islam seriously, man, Islam, everything's wrong.
Have you think you can have fun friends around, you know, you can have a party parties or how long you can go do this or that. Everything's just assume everything's the same you become the more Islamic you become, the more religious you become. That just means more of life has become impermissible for you, the enjoyments of life have been taken away from you. What a tragedy. I don't know who did this propaganda. But it was such a gross misrepresentation of her religion. All religions, one of its functions is to make life easier.
One of its roles is to make life easier to take your burdens off, to allow you to truly enjoy happiness, to remove sadness from your life. That is one of the great benefits of our Deen
in the Latina collarbone Allah but the code isn't enough even though the statement our masters allies courageous, it's commendable. But this should translate into some kind of transformation to just saying you're Muslim isn't enough. Just declaring your master is a lie isn't enough, then lads from some master calm, which is roughly translated, then they will form upon it. But let's talk about first the word finma
which is one of the whole Vata it's one of the one of the letters of the Arabic language are prepositions in the Arabic language that suggests
delay. Also, a Botha like Moreover,
they also suggest you know, something that comes up the TV or something comes in the next thing comes. The idea of therma here is when you declare your master is Allah, that's not a that's easy to say. As courageous as it is saying that one time is easy. Once you've set it though, you got to start making moves to live up to it. You have to start making some changes in your life. When you set up an ally, it shouldn't necessarily mean that you're trying to live up to it. But what is the karma remarkable word in the Arabic language there there are so many variations of this word, all of which are describing Islam Chi em kalaam kalaam ikoma you know,
all of these are used in our classroom and documented the descriptions of Allah azza wa jal Commonwealth test. So many variations of this one route one word, which literally means to stand the origin of the word is to stand is the comma, some say is the hyperbola like the Marbella form of Tacoma, which means to absolutely be straight, to stay straight to remain straight, can it be get a Serato Mr. Team, all of you are familiar with that term. Others say that the NFC and enter in the road highlight mohana trying wanting a problem. So those who declare themselves a master and they're trying really hard to stay straight. I was not even expecting perfection. I was expecting attempt
wanting. You want to get you want to fix yourself now that you've declared a luxury master. And it was talking about the people who can look back into their life. And they can honestly say to themselves, honestly say to themselves, and honestly say to y'all, I tried, I tried to make changes in my life. One of our teachers at Campus in Dallas, had a beautiful exercise for our students, and really beneficial I think for all Muslims. He asked our students to make a list of things they wish they didn't do, in life, bad habits that they have, that they wish they could get rid of, and things that they wish they accomplished. For the sake of Allah. I have a list of wishes that I accomplished
for the sake of Allah. Just a wish list of things that I hope I wasn't doing. I wish I wasn't doing this. This this is I wish I wasn't so lazy. I wish I wasn't putting things off all the time. I wish I didn't lose my temper all the time. I wish I didn't have this or that or the other evil habit. Whatever it may be. Maybe some of you are smoking. Maybe some of you have a closet drinking habit. I don't know. And put that in your wish list. I wish I didn't do this this this Can I bet I know is disobeying the law. And on the other hand, I wish I was doing certain things for Allah. How I wish I could get up for fudger early enough. I wish I could just make it to the mustard once in a while to
make a lot there. be so awesome.
You know, I wish I made it to July before the Sabbath started.
I wish I did that. I know. I feel that every week I come late. Every week I come like right before the guy says
you know, I'm the guy last guy to park my car. I parked closest to the exit. Because you know lastin first out principle of accounting it works in july two lastin first out, and I wish I might my phone didn't go off in every salon. You know, I wish I wasn't that guy every time.
I wish. I wish I wish he said make a list of these things and then ask yourself what is keeping you from fulfilling this? What's keeping you What do you really want to blame?
The i o before the caffeine was ready to put in the gym. He was ready to blame anybody in humanity. The only one who is refusing to blame is himself.
And in this ayah Allah says you've declared on your master communism
The only thing left now is a must try the straight mode. Try to fix your matter. See the irony of your own phone ringing saucer.
But anyhow, at least try to fix your matter. Try to straighten up some Mr. camo. And then the beautiful thing happens. And this is there's so much interesting enough among our classical scholars about tetanus, no other human Monica. angels descend upon them, Angel coming down upon them. So the difference of opinion among Allah is just coming down. Because the last time I was talking about the day of judgment and Hellfire and Alka, maybe these angels are coming down upon the believers in the orchestra. There's no page on the air, there's no restriction on the IRA. So maybe they're coming down upon them at the time, they're about to leave this world. So you live the good life, and you're
in your deathbed. Imagine you and I are gonna be on the bed One day another
call or on a plane or in our bed.
Whenever that's gonna happen, hospital bedroom,
and hospital bedrooms, their family members around you, they're crying over you. You know, you don't even have that, you know,
it's already reached.
out to check out of this place, this temporary residence Allah gave us and this body itself is a temporary residence. But we're about to check out this body itself. And then nobody else your mother is standing there, your your children are standing there, your brother, your sister, your friends are standing by their bed and they're crying. And then your eyes open and you see something they can't even see. You see angels coming down.
Nobody can see them, you can see them. And when people see angels, only two kinds of angels show up angels that will terrify you like Nortel
or angels that will give you much more experienced and these people in this particular era they experienced the joy of angels coming to them and say well, don't be afraid.
Don't worry, can be grieving.
A few is understandable. You're about to die, fuse. Understandable what's not there. Don't worry about it then grief, grief and sadness happens over the past.
Whatever happened already
been mentioned because of believers like oh my god angels already here. I didn't. I had to do some work over.
I was planning on doing Africa this year, I was gonna recite some more Quran. I was gonna spend some more time with my mother.
I was gonna start I was gonna do you know how
I was going to pay off this one on that one. I was going to give some more. So I was ready to write the check before I passed out and I'm in the hospital. And now you're here. I was ready to work to check first. Can I do that before you take me? And they say no, don't worry about it. You're okay. You got enough credits you graduate.
Congratulate yourselves feel congratulated about gender identity content that used to be promised to you all the time.
The guy's on his deathbed. Because this man is when he's on his deathbed. Everything else around them is crying. And they don't even have the energy. They don't have the strength to even shed a tear. But inside of them, they have never been happier in their life and never been happier. Because they just got the guarantee agenda. Some other losses happens even before the person dies, that they actually see the angels congratulating them well at the moment of death.
say that this is happening, the angels coming and congratulating you constantly is happening even now. If you are trying to become a better person. If you're trying to live up to the muster, camo, you may not hear them you may not see them but allow sense of angels from the sky for the only reason to just come and see to you and to make you feel not afraid and not worried and to feel good about gender that's coming. Just for that reason. The lessons angels from the sky holla
I'm here and a half we'll see the end. They say enter Syria or fajita alcoholic.
They see the interest come for the purpose of telling you not to fear for the purpose that you may not be afraid for the purpose that you will not grieve. Or Dean I told you it removes sadness from life. It removes pressure and stress from life. One of the two stresses people have fear and grief.
Fear and grief and the angels come and disabled will heal you emotionally. You don't have to worry you did you did your part to Allah and Allah will take care of your emotional health, your psychological health, your spiritual health, and that the half a dozen agenda and be congratulated of feel congratulated agenda. Feel the good news
his agenda and that he couldn't do it was such a gorgeous part of the ayah. And let
us spend some time on this. This ayah itself is a world really it's a world by itself. And let Eagleton to which you had continuously been promised. I know what I've been Allahu Jana Chiquita
in his book, and he is saying that the people that are being calculated, what is said specifically to them is you use to get congratulated, you used to get promised and not all the time continue to eat.
This kind of luck continuation with God, I'm about to come together. It's like you used to continually get congratulated. Now the thing is, I already mentioned to you in the same slides, no accident that there were a bunch of irresponsible kofod who said, Don't listen to this Koran make noise when it's recited. But then there's the believer who learning and the evening he was hated, it was word he thought he or she found joy in reciting the Quran, and listening to Allah as promised. And when we recite a lot of Quran, what do you hear about a lot? You hear about gender a lot. And you hear about it constantly. You don't just hear once in a while, doesn't just talk about this home
of ours, that he's built for us. Once in a while. He talks about it constantly, constantly, constantly.
You know, when people want to buy a house, and they're renting an apartment, and they're saving money, they talk about buying the house constantly.
They talk about their house constantly. When you have enough money to now put money down for a house or buy a house, then you're going around checking neighborhoods constantly on real estate websites constantly, because you can't wait to go to your new home. There's this thing inside the human being I can't wait to move to that new home. Should we go to this one or that one? It was really nice. Did you look at that backyard? Oh, that's amazing.
Because the thing is, it's in human nature and human nature. And just love having a new home. Even if you are in a home, maybe you want a new home five years ago, it's old. Now you go to somebody else is asking. It's kind of nice. I wonder, I wonder if I can pull this off. Let me check my account. You know, let me see what if I sold the house here and brought it over there? You start this this is our program this inside of us. We have this thing inside us we love our home. And what is it? Let's say Allah describes the real estate agenda. Constantly in the Quran. I'm promising you I'm promising you I'm pro and I tell you what, la when we moved to that house, we're not going to
want to move. I'm not going to want to move.
But the idea of this is that I'm trying to get across to you and myself. Even for myself.
The angel comes in says you will continuously promise Jenna, you were continuously promised in the Quran. But if you're not reading the Quran regularly, you're not being continuously promised. If you're not listening to Allah's promise all the time, you're not one of the people that are constantly being promised agenda.
This is talking to those who had a relationship with the last word who didn't make you know, the Cathars criticism, Allah says, Well, I'm a little iffy, he make noise instead of it, you know, despite it, so people don't hear it. Well, you're not one of those kofod. But you know what, when you have a multiple choice in your head, on your iPod, there's the entire presentation of an mp3, and you've got a little bit of, you know, 25 cent or, you know, a quarter or whatever, some other albums on there, too. And you're like, what should I pick? Who should I listen to right now in the car? There's a choice. You know?
What are you choosing the choosing noise over the Quran? are you choosing you know, the news report, the Dow Jones Industrial Average? Is that what you're choosing over the Quran? Are you picking? That's a personal question for each and every one of us, myself included. You've got some time to kill it home. Let's see what's funny on YouTube
and see what's out there. You know, are you picking Quran we have to be the people that are constantly exposed to Allah's word more than anything else. We have to be people have caught on, we can't get lazy about this book. And then you will experience the joy of these promises that Allah makes. And when you when you hear the promises of Allah one of the most beautiful things about the promises of Allah, that I as a believer and you as a believer Can't wait is when a love ascribes treasom Jenna
electress describes drinks and Jenna. Allah describes rivers and Jenna. He describes them in great detail. Then we go to john LVC. Oh, that is that's what he was talking about. I mean, we can read the Tafseer of the agenda, but the real deceit of the agenda agenda itself.
And we will experience the joy of comparing the world of Allah, the word of Allah, and the actual experience, the one who heard it all the time. But we will experience that all the time, the one who couldn't wait to see what this will actually
mean, how many people know already how many times you cannot even talk to john Nelson doesn't even know how many times when they actually stand in the kitchen.
And you recite that I have a journal you will feel is undescribable had something else?
Allah, Allah, Allah hafele
agenda and let
that you only are
the ones protecting you from we've been here protective friends in worldly life and in the era.
They sent a legion of angels to protect you and me just because we were courageous enough to declare that we're Muslims and live by it.
This protection, are we looking for
a lady centered battalion of angels, the same angels that are not congratulating this person agenda? or letting him know we've always been around? Actually, Allah signed us to be your security team.
the question is, why would you need security in the
beginning, I understand there's dangerous engineer. Why do you need security in the era because from the time you get out of your grave, to the time you make it through the gates of General, there's a lot of danger in between.
A lot of danger in between.
Allah has assigned us to make sure you're okay to take care of you.
Welcome fee hamata. Stay here and for Sukkot, and Indiana, for you people especially, there's going to be whatever you desire, whatever shanwa comes to shove, I mean, strong appetite, strong urge for something. There are kids in the audience here that have the strong urge to play PlayStation three. At the moment, I got to play man, I gotta play. I gotta go. And they gotta turn it on. They got to play,
addicted to video games. They're addicted to movies, a movie comes out. It's like farmed. And I'm
You have to see it on opening night will be a waste of a human being, you will not have fulfilled your purpose in life. If you were not alone. And you didn't watch the movie. He can't wait till it comes out. You know.
That's the attitude.
And so they're all appetites, you have an appetite for entertainment, you have an appetite for music, you have an appetite for chin, just kicking it.
Over appetite for food, you have an appetite for temptation.
appetites, Allah says I will fulfill all of your appetites. When I come
home, you have the appetite, I will fulfill it. I will leave us completely satiated. You will not be unsatisfied in any way shape or form. But you're right, that's just the beginning. Welcome fee hamata. Don't wear a comfy helmet. So awesome. In Arabic means to make a claim also means that up until about a Dasha, wherever you place an order of right now you and I live in this world and our imagination is limited. It is limited. So the only things I can desire are within the scope of my limited imagination. Isn't that true? Everything I can learn is within the scope of my limited imagination. Now gentlemen, the prophet describes it's on the long run, he was said that he says
mother I know what the boy has ever seen.
When I was in in 70 odd years ever heard,
heard has ever even imagined persons Allah. When you allow one day by Allah permission, and His mercy, well known to all of us, when we go into the NA is our imagination going to expand isn't going to be that we will see things that we that we've never even imagined before.
So now in the beginning of January, your only appetites are the ones you've learned in dunya. But once you get into Gemini, you develop new cravings. You add some new stuff, because you've seen things you've never seen before. So myself not only your
own, maybe some other thought crosses your mind later on in general, I would like some of that to you have that to
replace your orders. We only take orders once standard danijela
give it over you desire, whatever you desire is given to you. Then your desires evolve and evolve and evolve. And they keep getting placed and you keep asking for more things and they keep getting given to you. We'll look and see how much down what an incredible description of genda but the most incredible part is what I'm concluding with. The next is
this next because one of my problems is I'm busy. So I'm going to have to explain it to you from my point of view. In this culture in indo Pak culture, you go to somebody's house. When you go to somebody's house, they don't take you to the dining room. They take you to the living room, the guest room.
In the guest room, they give you some dried fruit. Shiny, shiny chandrashila. Okay, some pista Dom something, you know, they give you some some snack before the actual dinner. Okay, they don't give you the actual dinner first, they give you the sit you down and they give you like maybe a mini Snickers bar or something. But whatever, they give you a little mini snack. What is the point of it? What's your appetite? That's to whet your appetite, then they take you for the main meal. Okay, that's the difference between those two. So initial hospitality when you walk into somebody's house, you get initial hospitality a little bit of a light. Let me kind of get you some water, can I get
you some juice something while the dinner is being prepared, and the tables being set and things like that, right? But initial hospitality is called noozle.
In the Arabic language, the initial hospitality is called Muslim. And the word Muslim comes from NASA, which means to come down. Literally, that's us because the guy that came over to your house came back in the day he came on a horse, he came on a camel. So what did he do? He came out came off his horse, and he came into your house. And he came to your house. And your house is also called London. And the names for houses Edmonson. And when it comes into your lungs, and you give him Muslim, the first introductory hospitality just to get your appetite started, that is called Muslim. Now this description of gender that I just gave you, this description that I just gave you, the next
hour unless you have a Muslim and mineral food over him. This is just introductory appetite from the one who forgives excessively, the one who's got all kinds of care and mercy. We're just getting started.
We can desire and all we can imagine to ask,
is just getting started.
That's just introductory hospitality. And you know why that's so incredible. Because you know, at the end of the day,
how much can we ask for imagination even after seeing gentleman's limited
agenda. So give us without us women asking things we can't even imagine afternoon gender, and that's later. That's beyond words. This is just to get your appetite started. These are the people of gender and the people of gender. They can simply be courageous about being Muslim. They can simply stand up for their Islam. They can simply make a serious commitment to themselves that they are going to become better and better and better Muslims, more and more and more committed Muslims practically active on the teachings of this Deen they will become those kinds of Muslims day after day from Mr. Como aloha maganda Mr. kamin barakallahu li walakum.
