Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan ponders on what Allah wants from us and what we should be doing in this life to earn rewards in the HereAfter.

Allah is actually telling us to invest in ourselves not just in terms of the Akhirah which is obvious but even in terms of dunya. There are things we need to improve about ourself and we will see the gains of that later on in life. One should never underestimate the good that people do in a community and the good that one is capable of and Allah has sent down upon us huge mercy in the fact that the good that one is capable of cannot be the good that someone else can be capable of. The opportunities that Allah gave you may not have been given to me and the opportunities Allah may not have been given to you. Every one of us has a different set of opportunities a different set of challenges and we have to make the most out of whatever life Allah has given us.

Allah is watching carefully and Allah has full view especially of what we Muslims do despite the fact that we are embroiled in our obsession with the lives of others while completely neglecting our own shortcomings.

00:02:44--> 00:03:23

in today's hookah inshallah hotel I'd like to share with you some reflections from two Ayat of the Quran the belong to SoTL Baqarah, higher number 108 and 109. And I'll start with the latter ayah and then go back to iron number 188. To illustrate something allows or just says what people say that are Atos. Again, I think everybody here in the audience has at least heard that phrase once before, established the prayer and gives a cause very common. Well not to continually unfussy common higher energy do who and Allah and whatever good you do, whatever whatever investment you make for yourselves, have any kind of good deed that you do in the law, you're gonna find it with a law, none

00:03:23--> 00:03:56

of your good deeds are going to go to waste in the lobby. matamanoa will say no doubt Allah is in full view of everything that you're doing. Now that seems like a pretty general and universal statement, you could actually just, you know, talk to any Muslim about the importance of establishing the prayer and giving Zakat and doing good deeds. And having hoped that Allah azzawajal will count those deeds towards something meaningful. And we pray that Allah does that for all of us all of our deeds that are good and small, and overlook our mistakes, you know, big mistakes and small mistakes on the Day of Judgment. But it's remarkable where this idea occurs. And this is part

00:03:56--> 00:04:24

of the beauty of the Quran, everything is in a particular place. And if you don't appreciate where this occurs, and what was actually talking about already, he was actually it's this is in the middle of another hotbar. Basically, Allah is giving us a set of lessons. And part of those lessons is establishing prayer and giving Zakat, then it gives it a new wisdom, a new dimension that you otherwise would never know. You wouldn't even know that this is actually teaching you something much more than if you just looked at the ayah entirely on its own.

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

So what is the law talking about before he's actually talking about a very big problem that exists in the Medina in the city of Medina for the Muslims at the time? Allah says what the cathedral mean Adam Kitab lo yo Dona come embody Imani Coco foreign, a huge population no small number from among the People of the Book. really intensely would love something they love that low euro do not come in. The money come could foreign If only there was some way that they'll be able to turn you back after your faith after you've become believers into kofod.

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

into disbelievers. They are extremely frustrated, meaning the tribes of the Christians and the Jews that are in the city of Medina and because of because this is so little Bukhara there's more of an emphasis on the Jewish tribes, because that's the primary conversation and so little Baqarah Allah is highlighting a feeling that these people have deep inside of themselves, because so many of their own members of their own congregations have now taken Shahada. Now they are companions of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, their loyalties have shifted, and this burns them on the inside, they desire somehow they can get their people back. It actually reminds me of a documentary

00:05:35--> 00:06:12

I saw not too long ago, turning Muslim in Texas. And it's almost 10 years old, the documentary now and there was a preacher whose son became Muslim. And they interviewed him and his wife. And they asked him, you know, what do you think about your son having become Muslim? I pray for him every day. And one day he's gonna become a, he's gonna come back to Jesus. And when he does, he's gonna be an amazing, dynamic preacher. That's what the mother said. And she said, it would have been easier if he just told us he's gay. Yeah, that's what she said. They prefer that as abominable as that it to the Christians. It's not like it's acceptable to the Christians, but having their son become a

00:06:12--> 00:06:47

Muslim, that was a much bigger problem. So there is this huge, huge problem. And by the way, you'll find the sentiment not just limited to here, but you'll find it across families where people take Shahada there, you know, I know I have many friends who become Muslim, and their families were not religious. They were Hindu, but not religious Hindus. They were Buddhist, but not practicing Buddhists. They were Christian, but not practicing Christians. But as soon as this boy becomes Muslim, all of a sudden their crucifix is all over the house. All of a sudden, they're getting up early to go to church on Sunday, all of a sudden, like their religious sentiment spark because we

00:06:47--> 00:07:25

have to fight this, you know. So you have the sentiment particularly about who the Jewish tribes of Medina who are losing their congregation, to those who lost the law while he was on them. Now let's talk dig a little deeper. This is not just talking about any Jews, or any Christians actually, the criticism if you've been following the arguments of Central Baccarat is about their leadership is stored Amalia hood. It's the rabbi's. They're the knowledgeable among them. And the knowledgeable among them are particularly upset that their congregation is dwindling, their numbers are going down somebody else's taking their numbers. If you keep following the arguments of the Quran about these

00:07:25--> 00:08:00

people, this group of people they were religious. And by the way, before Muslims, the the Islam before us is the Islam that was given to Masonic Islam, the Sharia that was given to musasa. So the Jewish tribes are basically what is left of Islam centuries later. So we don't just think of them as another religion, we actually think of them as a deteriorated version of Islam. Don't think of them as another religion. As a matter of fact, there's a reason also lots of like, Saddam was given the instruction to pray in the same direction as them and fast on the same days as them because we're not supposed to think of them as a separate entity. In the same surah there's no other nation, Allah

00:08:00--> 00:08:36

does this word in the same sort of lessons. Yeah, you had a vena amanu. Before he does that. He says, Yeah, but he, he, he addresses them directly. You know, he does that over and over and over again. As a matter of fact, there is no yeah, you have no idea cafaro in the Quran, that's direct. It's cool. Yeah, you had coffee on the director dress is actually to the believers. And you'll find it also with the People of the Book. Yeah, but he is right. There is one Latina, kafala tanjiro young, but if you study its context, even that's talking about the ohana. It's not talking about addressing them on this day. A lot of that has to do

00:08:37--> 00:09:13

Domino that's in the era. But the point I'm trying to make is there rabbis. I want you to understand what happens to a Muslim community because that's what they were a Muslim community that becomes corrupted and deteriorated. What happens is there are law, there are the law, they basically became businessmen. You're still gonna be vi Atilla he salmon and kanila. They sell the Iet out for a small game. That's the criticism that's given of them. And these people, they don't think of their congregation as a following that they are responsible for. They want the best things for them. They want to help their families. They want to get their young boys married, they want to get their, you

00:09:13--> 00:09:50

know, their their marriage problems sorted out, etc. Except this is not their concern. Their concern is the donor base comes from these people. And when they come when they have a problem, they're going to come to me for a fatwa and I'm going to charge them a fee to give my fatwa. And if my donor base becomes less, who's going to come in who's going to donate for my my upkeep. So when these people are going off to the Prophet, there's a lot of checks leaving. There's a lot of paycheck weekly, weekly donations leaving out of the hall. This is a big problem. We can't have this. This is unacceptable. And so they saw this as a serious problem if it hurt their bottom line. It was

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

actually a matter of his straight business for them it was straight business has hurt them in any unforeseen him some jealousy that emanated deep from within themselves. There's another thing that

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

Hear that we have to understand about the corrupted religious psychology of those people. These were qualified rabbis they studied many, many years to become what they became.

00:10:11--> 00:10:52

And here comes this man Mohammad Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no Samia Rasulullah we call him the Messenger of Allah. They don't. And the first thing they look at him is like, this guy, him. He can't even read. Actually they considered the word or me, or what we commonly translated as unlettered as an insult. And that's what they called him. How's he going to be? What are his qualifications to lead a congregation? Why are people leaving me I have all these thoughts in Taurat interlude, I have all these credentials, I'm on them, I give these photos and they're leaving me and going to him. This is ridiculous. How can that be? In other words that you know when you study the

00:10:52--> 00:11:30

deen of Allah and the Sharia, Busan Islam was also the deen of Allah. But when you sincerely study the deen of Allah, you're supposed to become more humble. The more you study Islam, the more it should remind you of what it means to be odd. And what what Allah places is robbed. And the more you recognize that the lower you become, because there's no lower job than not. Right? So the more knowledge you and I gain, it's actually supposed to make us more down to earth. But unfortunately for these people, their knowledge of the deen of Allah made them feel like they're somehow superior to everybody else, even the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Rani, so this is a serious problem. This

00:11:30--> 00:12:06

is a very serious problem. And so there's this jealousy in them, how come people are coming and listening to him? They're not coming and listening to me anymore. And there's even a bigger problem. Why can't they accept the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam as a matter of fact, the Quran will tell us that the most knowledgeable among them knew the Messenger of Allah and the new Islam and the new the Quran, like they would know their own children. Yeah, the Buddha Who can I know? They recognize him like they recognize their own kids, but why not accept them? Why not accept? You know, even though Quran actually questions the the the optimism of some of the companions Look, these people notice

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

that these people know in GE, they should be first in line to take the Shahada, but a lot corrects that and says, Are

00:12:14--> 00:12:52

you really hopeful they're going to accept what you're saying? Well, why not? Because if we accept what he's saying, all of my years of credentials, and all of my degrees where people come to me and ask me for my footwork. Now, if I go to him, I'm accepting that when if if anybody ever comes to me, I'm gonna say Allahu Allah Matsuda. Who are them go to him? I don't know. I can't say anything anymore. All my credentials are gone. They don't mean anything in front of the soul of Allah. sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. You know, so then, what am I just another person? Is that what I'm gonna do just sit among the rest of these people. So there's this hazard that is emanating inside of

00:12:52--> 00:13:21

themselves, and they now have whatever plans they can hatch, to try to bring people back from Islam by the Monaco foreign after your email, they want to bring you back into crowfall. Some things I want to share with you about the language of this ayah before we go on, is that you know, I mentioned the word Imani calm, not bad and mental. But the money from the master the noun is used. And what that means in Simple English for the rest of us is that a lie is saying that your faith is firm.

00:13:22--> 00:13:31

They can do nothing to shatter your faith. And that's why the word low is used also low actually is used when you you wish something would happen. But you know, it can't happen. It's impossible.

00:13:32--> 00:13:53

is a kind of a monster halen. testerman low, right when something can't possibly happen, then you see the word Low, low euro doula coming back, the money can go foreign means they could wish all they want, and they could take your Avon away and make up for it again, they are incapable of it. What are we learning from that? We are learning that no matter what propaganda these people did,

00:13:54--> 00:14:05

it wouldn't actually ever take away the amount of any single believer among the Muslim community. The only thing that can hurt the amount of a believer is that actually they have something missing in their own mind.

00:14:06--> 00:14:31

Once their Eman is complete, once their mind is set, right, once that base is settled, then you can't shake it. If there's something missing in the demand, yes, it can be shaken. You see. So the problem is never going to be from the outside, that somebody can destroy your faith. The problem is always going to be from first from the inside. If this foundation isn't there, you know. So now, let's fast forward to our times before we finish this, why am I sharing this idea with you?

00:14:33--> 00:14:55

I'm sharing this idea with you because a lot of young people are really frustrated about what's happening about Islam nowadays. There's propaganda against Islam. There are people who hate Islam. They make videos about Islam, they have political campaigns against Muslims, they target Muslims, they demonize Muslims they write books against them articles against them, videos against them, blogs against them, news reports against them, oh my god, they hate us so much.

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

And then they make videos on YouTube things like you know, if you want

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

This you 10 minutes and you won't be Muslim anymore. And some 17 year olds is Oh, yeah, I'm gonna watch it, I'll show you. And 10 minutes later, he's like, Really? Wow, I didn't know that. And he's getting all messed up. And so because I get emails from all over the world, I get emails like, Brother, do you know what the Christians are doing? You know what the Jews are doing? You know, this video they made, you know, this website, they made, you know, this blog they made, oh my god, they're gonna destroy Islam. You know, they made a fake Koran. They did this. They did. And there's no end to what they've made. And they continue to make it. You know, I live in the US, as many of

00:15:35--> 00:16:14

you know, I live in the Bible Belt 90% of the radio stations, when you tune in the radio, FM radio back back home 90% of the Christian talk radio, right, or country music, at least where I come from. When the Christian talk radio, most of the time, they're actually not even talking about Christianity. They're talking about the Sharia law. Are they talking about the Prophet Muhammad? That's what they're talking about. They're attacking it constantly, constantly, constantly. I listen to this stuff every morning. So I listened to, you know, and they have their so called experts on the subject. And it's not a it's not a shallow attack. They're pretty sophisticated in their attack.

00:16:14--> 00:16:47

But you know, what you get you started getting worried, man, I better call them I better respond to some of what they're saying. I'm going to take care of this because you know, we have to stand up for our Deen, we can just take this stuff lying down. How's it I mean, Endian fusi. Remember, NEMA tambien, aloha Mohawk, it is emanating from the jealousy they have inside of themselves, even after the truth has become clear. Now what is the benefit of Allah telling us even after the truths become clear for the people who have that kind of blind hatred towards Islam, clarifying to them, the truth of Islam is not going to change anything, because it's not like they're doing all of this, because

00:16:47--> 00:17:06

they're not clear about Islam. They're actually doing all of this because of jealousy, despite the fact that many of them are clear about Islam. That's not the problem. Now, the problem for me and you is that for a lot of young people, we have to respond to the profile. We have to take care of this. What do we what are we

00:17:07--> 00:17:43

describing this is a big problem. We need to react. Why don't we do something about this rather? So I say okay, let's let's tell us what we should do. Because he's the one who introduced us to this problem. It's pretty intense problem. And the Sahaba are aware of this problem. It's a very serious problem, because they're enemies of Islam that time they're enemies of the living messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi. Salam among their, in their midst, in their midst. This is a serious, serious issue. What are we supposed to do? it? Let's let Allah tell us in that same ayah the next words for foo was farkle hedayati. Allahu vmdk.

00:17:44--> 00:18:06

Forget it. Forgive them have part in this. And what's funny turn the page. What they say in Punjabi motivo. Gunny, Queenie, read you. There's no problem. overlooked. ignore it. It's not worth it. That's not my words. That's a last word. Let let them work. Let them say whatever they want.

00:18:08--> 00:18:16

Until when are we gonna listen to them like that forever, brother. We shouldn't respond the love of God until Allah brings his own decision.

00:18:18--> 00:18:34

But brothers, they have so much money. They're spending so much. You know, they have so much power. There are politicians behind them. There are media machinery behind them. There are millions and billions of dollars behind them. What about that? And ally responds himself and he says in the law, goodness.

00:18:36--> 00:18:44

Allah is no doubt in complete control over everything. Why are you so worried about their media power, or their financial power or their political power?

00:18:45--> 00:19:04

Allah is not undermining that the scheming exists. Allah is not, you know, making us blind to the fact that they don't have this kind of hatred. He's not making us blind to any of that. But Allah is also teaching us how you're supposed to respond. You're supposed to show fortitude you're supposed to be focused on something much more important

00:19:05--> 00:19:11

you know there are some young people they spend a lot of time on YouTube or Facebook or for Islam of course

00:19:12--> 00:19:30

you know, so they'll watch a video and then they'll somebody will you know cursor on the bottom you Muslims are this this this this and this guy will feel necessary to respond to them. Oh yeah, well, you could find we're gonna get you one day and and then then there's like, hey, endless numbers of pages of back and forth because some Muslim kid thinks he's standing up for a song

00:19:32--> 00:19:38

just read one i a firefighter was hired to lobby me in a law coalition career.

00:19:39--> 00:19:42

Brother, what are we supposed to do? Just forgive do nothing.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

Okay, let's read the next

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

well, chemo Sonata

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

No, no, you should do something new I established the prune instead of sitting at some hookah shop until three in the morning discussing what to kofod are doing and then waking up

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

fudger at 11am

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

and then strolling over for Jumeirah half, you know, halfway through the hookah

00:20:07--> 00:20:12

instead of that, how about you smirk on a puppy masala? How would you work on that a little bit?

00:20:15--> 00:20:26

How would you work on the way you make your money because the guy is not just about giving money, you can't give money if you don't have money, and you can't you can't give clean money if you don't have clean money. So if you're making your money through questionable means,

00:20:28--> 00:21:05

then you're not establishing zeca just saying, you know, it. Just that phrase alone is actually cleaning up of the Muslim economy, the entire Muslim economy, every penny and you know, every pound that comes into your pocket should actually be permissible. If you're going to talk about giving Zakat, why don't you work on that? Well, Kimo salado to the guy and by the way, this is the starting point, or just slot nzqa raises another football budget slot in soccer. What else are we supposed to do? Now understand this? There are people who say that the kuffaar have such an elaborate plan to destroy Islam, we need to do something big to respond to them. And somebody says How about we teach

00:21:05--> 00:21:36

children how to recite the Quran, however, we teach our young people what the seal of the messenger is to LaGuardia. So how about we take care of our neighbors? How about we introduce people to the message of Islam with kindness? How do we know brother? What's that gonna do? The kuffaar are such a big problem, you need to take care of the big problem, these little things, they're not going to make a difference. What are you just gonna build machines? You're just gonna run schools, you're just gonna teach children? What's that gonna solve? So you know, what people do? They say the problem is so big. So we need to think about doing big things. And if you're doing something less

00:21:36--> 00:22:05

than that, if you're just, you know, in a small circle teaching some young people, or you're just getting some kids off the street and just saying, Hey, guys, instead of going out and watching a movie, why don't you why don't I just meet you at the machine, we'll just chat about whatever. And we'll go out for some coffee later, you're just doing that your work is worthless, because you know, the Godfather is still there. And they're billions of dollars is still there. So it doesn't count for anything? And how does the law respond to this attitude? By the way, these people who say we have to have big plans, let me tell you something about them. Because I've gone through these phases

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

in my early years, these these people will talk about big things forever. And practically, they will do nothing.

00:22:14--> 00:22:35

Practically they will do nothing, they will sit there and talk about how the kofod are doing this or that or the other how we need to do this or that or the other. But sitting there on the ground. Nothing actually changes 10 years ago, by 15 years go by and then they get frustrated. We've been talking about this for so long, nothing has changed. We need to take more drastic measures. And then they do insane things.

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

Then they do things you couldn't imagine like what kind of person would do this

00:22:41--> 00:23:06

now and what's the law's response? What is the law want you to do? What does the law want me to do? What is the law on every young man and woman in this community to do he says we're about to cut the move the unfussy comb, men hiring, whatever you invest, and I'm using the word invest on purpose the beam is used, you know, in in archaic English translations, they translate whatever you send forth for yourselves, which I don't think anybody here understands. Sending forward for yourself basically means investing.

00:23:07--> 00:23:28

When you put money in a business, then you don't get the money back right away, you will get it later on. Meaning you sent it ahead. A few years later, it will come back to you. Allah is actually telling us to invest in ourselves, not just in terms of the aka which is obvious, but even in terms of dunya there are things you need to improve about yourself, and you will see the gains of that later on in life.

00:23:30--> 00:23:51

You know, where do I begin? Here? I want to I want to learn for art I want to learn to see, you know, why don't you start memorizing Quran? No, no, tell me how do I learn everything about Arabic? Okay, well, why don't you start with memorizing the Quran a little bit? No, no, let's give me something more elaborate. I need something more exotic. You need to invest in yourself. You need to put some time in for yourself.

00:23:52--> 00:24:26

And when you do that, and Allah says the unphysical min hiren of this min is for an award. What that means is any kind of good, don't underestimate the good that people do in a community. Don't underestimate the good that you're capable of. And Allah has this min is very, it's a huge mercy from Allah because the good that you're capable of, I'm not capable of and the good that I'm capable of, you're not capable of the opportunities that will give you he did not give me and the opportunities Allah gave me he did not give you every one of us has a different set of opportunities, a different set of challenges. And we have to make the most out of whatever life

00:24:26--> 00:25:00

Allah has given us and find a way of doing some kind of good for ourselves and for other people. And if you can focus yourself on doing something good. And you that you will find with a law that you do who are in the law in the law hobbema Dharma Luna bossy searching for what an elegant conclusion. No doubt Allah is in full view. Especially have what you do. This be my dharma. Luna, you know, is makhanda what's called mocha for us. It's exclusivity. In other words, especially the things that you

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

People do. Allah is watching carefully, always has full view especially what you Muslims do. You Muslims are so obsessed about what the kofod are doing, what they are doing, what their propaganda is, what their attacks are, you're so obsessed with them, and you have no concern about what you're doing. And Allah says, I do not concern myself with what they are doing. I am concerned with what you're doing in the law habima Dharma Luna mercy. No doubt Allah is in full view in regards to what you people do. The crux of this hookah is that on the one hand, the Quran actually makes us very clear about what's going on in the world around us.

00:25:42--> 00:26:05

But on the other hand, Allah azzawajal also gives us profound solutions, profound solutions, not simplistic solutions, when people become concerned about making themselves better, making their families better, making their communities better, making their families stronger. And I want to emphasize this, this this point, for, you know, especially Muslim communities in the West, in the United States, in Europe, anywhere.

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

We have the institution of the masjid.

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

And the machine is predominantly attended by men.

00:26:13--> 00:26:50

That's the reality of the machine today. It's predominantly attended by men. But if you look at the world outside, the world outside is actually attacking the institution of family itself. Families are being ruined, marriages are being ruined. Parents don't know how to raise kids anymore. Parents don't know even how to talk to their kids. When when a child becomes you know, a teenager and starts acting up a little bit. Parents have no concept, no idea how to deal with this kid. What do we do? Who do we talk to? Where do we get help, they don't know who their friends are. Husband and wife have a problem. They can't talk to anybody. The problem keeps getting worse and worse and worse.

00:26:51--> 00:26:55

And their husband goes to goes to work. And you know, the Secretary starts looking more and more beautiful.

00:26:56--> 00:27:07

And that's what's happening. This is the fitna that's growing. But we have massages that are full for Salah. The machine is supposed to be a place where families find refuge.

00:27:09--> 00:27:17

The entire family, women have support children have support men have support. The machine is supposed to be a place where the family becomes a stronger institution.

00:27:19--> 00:27:57

And the family, the family is what makes the machine better. And the machine is what makes the family better. These two entities actually have to work with they need each other. They need each other. Because families need the support of other families. Where do you think good families are going to meet each other, they're going to meet in the house of Allah. This isn't a this is a natural divine institution that brings people together for good intention. It's it's a loss plan. So when the massage either abandoned or when children are unwelcome at a machine, or when there's no facilities for women at a machine, they're just an afterthought, you know, more than half of our oma

00:27:57--> 00:28:06

and they're just find some closet for them. You know, when that happens, then you know what happens, the price is not paid at the machine, the price is paid at the family.

00:28:08--> 00:28:36

Because those women never got a proper education in their Deen. So they don't know what it means to be a mother in Islam. Those kids never made good Muslim friends. Because the place where they could have made good Muslim friends would have been at the lesson, they hung out a little bit. I'm not saying you come here, five days, five, five prayers a day, that may not be possible for you. But at least bring your kids for a shot. Okay, if you can't bring them every day, bring them two, three times a week, just bring them make your make your chart part of your child's memory, the fact that they used to come to the machine.

00:28:38--> 00:28:59

This is actually something is not small is very big, you might think this is you and those of you that are working people, you know, this is not a small effort. It takes effort to do this. It takes effort to do this, but you will find it with a lot. This is an investment you're making for yourself and your family. You know, you see the bucket of it. But these are the things we overlook. Because we're too busy talking about the attacks of

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

the things that we have to take care of right now that are ruining us and our families. We're not even addressing this is at the end of the day, this is my message. Don't underestimate the good that you can do on a daily basis. It's value with a lot is huge. We don't think you know, we don't think it's anything well who are in the law here. I think it's a huge thing with a law. That is that, you know, if we can internalize that, inshallah, tada, we'll see good effects in our community will see good effects in our youth, especially you know what we're gonna see, we're gonna see these reports they have young Muslims who become radicalized and become this or that, well, you know, when you

00:29:36--> 00:30:00

have a proper community structure, when you see one young, young man string, his other friends say, Hey, bro, where are you going? Let's talk and they pull him back in because now you have a community of young guys, and they're connected to a mother connected to scholars. You know? So you we can actually self police our own community right now because we're so disjointed. We don't know what's going on in the mind of a teenager. We don't know what they're going through. We don't know

00:30:00--> 00:30:33

videos are watching or what's going on in their head because most of their discussions are online not with actually real people. So I pray that Allah azza wa jal helps you and me take this advice more seriously. I pray that Allah azza wa jal makes us concerned with things that actually matter and doesn't make us overwhelmed with the with the attacks and the plans and the schemes of those who seek to hurt Islam. They are not our problem. You know, a lot will be empty until Allah comes with his decision, Allah will deal with them, we have to deal with what our problems are. We allow ourselves and make us truly self responsible, responsible for ourselves in our communities. And we

00:30:33--> 00:31:07

allow someone to strengthen this community and every single family in this community. May Allah bless the marriages in this community, but the parents in this community give them the ability to raise good righteous children, ambassadors of Islam, may Allah make you people a good model for Islam for the people all around you, that they see you and through you they see the love the Messenger of Allah had some Allahu Allahu Sena for all of humanity, that through you they see that this man was on the line. I mean, because the the only remnant The only trace left of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is in this oma that's all that's left. So we were all worried. We can they can't

00:31:07--> 00:31:19

see it anymore. They get to see you. You know? So May Allah azza wa jal empower us to be able to do to carry this heavy responsibility. barakallahu li walakum corallian Hakeem when finally we are committed to ethical hacking,
