They deserve nothing. They're losers. I'll prove my point. He wants to prove Allah wrong. By the way, this is a Satanic quality. Also,

00:02:05--> 00:02:14

when you're corrected, there's a fire burning inside you and you want to do everything you can to prove yourself right even though when you know you're wrong.

00:02:15--> 00:02:54

You have you have the need to be proven right? It's like a victory for you. So that when you're when somebody's telling you something, that's the truth. Accepting it might mean you lose the argument. So you won't accept it. can't accept it and you'll do everything you can to disprove or to undermine the one that corrected you the inability to take criticism. That's what he has. And he says Fatima wait any of CODA nella home Sirata coolmuster team? Because you made me slip? He's talking to Allah No. Because you made me slip. I will sit waiting for them on your precious straight path.

He just talked about the Day of Resurrection, which means we already learned about the day of resurrection he brought up something new now what did he bring up I will sit where on your wide on your straight path meaning ALLAH already taught us about a straight path. He taught all of human beings listen, I'm going to come bring you to this earth is going to have lots of crooked paths. But there's only one straight path you stick to that you'll be back here again. And that haven't done home in heaven that will be yours forever. But you got to stick on the straight path he says the straight path of yours that's so precious to you. I'm gonna sit right on it. So Mala Arteaga Holman

00:03:29--> 00:03:55

Bailey ad him woman kullfi him well, and you know, and Yemeni him on a man Himalayan Shabbat le him, I will come to them from their front from their right, you know, from their back from the right from their left, one. And there. Each of those means many things. I'll just share one or two things with you for each. He's gonna stand right in front of you means you take one step towards Allah one step towards Allah, and he'll put fear in you. What are you doing? What's your family gonna say? If you take this step?

00:03:56--> 00:04:05

You're gonna start praying, you know how extreme that looks? You know how crazy you look when you do that? What do you think about wearing a hijab? Are you do you? Are you insane?

00:04:06--> 00:04:43

We, and you're, you're you're just 19 years old. You're just you're just a young man. Why are you looking like that? Stop doing that you're changing your appearance. You're hanging out with these friends. They're gonna think you're weird, who's gonna hire you who's gonna give you a job, you're gonna get kicked out by everybody. Everybody's gonna hate you. Stop. Don't take the step. You're going too fast, slow down. We're all human. It's okay. Don't worry about it. Just he stands right in front of you not wanting you to take that step towards the right path. Or he stands right in front of you and says, Don't Look here. Look over there. Look at look at how many options you have. He'll

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

stand right on this road. Because you know, if you're going if I'm going straight, and this thing is in my path, what do I have to do? Either I remove this from my path, or I go this way, or I go that way. So he stands in this path. And if you don't recognize him standing there, he's encouraging you to take the right or the left go

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

Some other route, don't go straight. There's always other, you know, for every Halal there's plenty of haram options. Right? For every good use of your time, there's plenty of bad uses of your time aren't there.

00:05:13--> 00:05:25

So for every good choice, there's a million bad choices, he will just stand right in front of the good choice. Like for example, waking up in the morning to pray, you don't have time. Just it's just the first news.

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

You know,

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

and he wants you to be angry at your alarm clock

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

at your phone,

00:05:35--> 00:05:50

you know, so just you got a little bit more time you got a little bit more time you got a little bit more time. Don't take this step, just standard you have to take one step you know, just stand there for a little bit. You don't have to take the step right now. Just wait a little we got time. So holding you back that's in the front.

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

And then he says from behind, behind means you know, some people when they take a step towards Allah, they stick they took a step away from something bad.

00:06:00--> 00:06:11

They were doing something bad and they decided to not do that anymore. And that also is a step towards Allah. And he reminds you of the bad stuff you used to do and say it was not fun. I mean, it wasn't that bad.

00:06:12--> 00:06:22

Man used to be crazy member I wonder what they're doing now those friends of mine I wonder what he's up to me just text him or give him dollar or something

00:06:25--> 00:06:30

Why don't get Hey boy, cuz I'm just getting together with them because you know, you have to stay in touch with people.

00:06:31--> 00:06:58

He's trying to pull you back sometimes there are very toxic people in your life that clearly were pulling you into haram haram haram haram haram and somehow you took a step and got away from them. But that doesn't mean the emotional attachment isn't there. It doesn't mean the residual effects aren't there. And then you're about to take a step forward. And the devil says Come on. You know you miss them. Just one text. Just respond just unblocked for like one hour.

00:06:59--> 00:07:04

Just one oh, this homie online. Oh my god, they texted at least I should respond as rude.

00:07:05--> 00:07:19

You see, he pulls you back. There are people that want to pull you back. He uses them to pull you back. Or he reminds you of your past and says you're too messed up. Why? Why are you even bothering taking the step? Look at all the mistakes you made. You're gonna take a step forward, please. You're a loser.

00:07:21--> 00:07:39

And then on the right, and on the left. Now the left is easier. The right outcome to last actually, the left is when he takes bad things. Listen carefully now, when he takes bad things because the left hand represents bad deeds. Yeah. When he takes bad things, and he makes you feel like they're not that bad.

00:07:41--> 00:07:50

It's not bad, but you're just human. You just have feelings. It's okay. Don't be so hard on yourself. It's not haram with a capital H.

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

It's not It's haram or it's not haram haram, right.

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

I mean, okay, fine. It's haram. But does that mean I'm not Muslim anymore?

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

At least I didn't kill anybody. yet.

00:08:07--> 00:08:12

So you, you know, because you're about to do something wrong. And you said, well, at least I'm not Hitler.

00:08:14--> 00:08:20

Let me tell you, if you want to compare yourself to someone worse, you can get away with anything. Because there's always somebody worse.

00:08:22--> 00:08:44

Right? So he comes at you with evil deeds, and he makes you feel like they're not that bad. He says to Allah, He says, these human beings are come at them from the front, or come at them from behind, or come at them from their left. And eventually, by the way, if you keep slipping, it's not that bad. It's not that bad. It's not that bad than that. It's not that bad changes. You know what it becomes? What's so bad about it?

00:08:45--> 00:08:49

What's so bad? Why why is it bad? I don't understand why it's bad.

00:08:50--> 00:08:56

I mean, can't just the person live their life? Can't they just do what they want? Why is it so bad to be happy?

00:08:57--> 00:09:26

You see how the conversation changes? Was the yellowhammer shaytaan Who am I the home shaitan beautifies their deeds to them? Now it looks like it's a good thing. I don't even know why Islam is so harsh. Why is the Quran so rigid? Like, just let me live man, let me just try to breathe. Just being a normal person. That's the devil's play. But the most wicked in my my opinion, personally, the most wicked is when he comes at you from the right.

00:09:27--> 00:09:41

What does it mean when He comes at you from the right means several things, but the one I want you to pay attention to is when he lets you do good things. Because he also did good things. Remember, he did a lot of good things to be what?

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

And because of his good things, good deeds. He felt like he's better.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

So he wasn't doing bad deeds. He was doing what good deeds, but based on those good deeds, he felt he was better in a position to judge who's better and who's worthy and who's not worthy.

00:10:01--> 00:10:04

So when you do good things, you're memorizing the Quran.

00:10:05--> 00:10:27

You're studying Islam. You're graduating from an Islamic University. you're attending some Halaqaat you're doing the religious thing. You're young man starting to give hot buzz. You're doing Dawa, you're doing the scout good stuff. And now as soon as you feel a little bit higher, you started Oh, man, these people need so much data.

00:10:29--> 00:11:10

As people who say, you know, and you find a young man saying things like, you know, some people are so ignorant, and they say this, this, wow. Some people are so ignorant. A staffer Allah, some people are just following the way of shatter really some people. Some people, you're already in a position to talk about who's following the devil's path. Guess what that represents the devil's path. That's what the devil's path looks like. When you in a position of doing good deeds. Feel like you are more worthy of Allah's recognition than other people. Allah should be given your responsibility. You have the role, you should be Khalifa on the earth, not them.

00:11:11--> 00:11:51

You get it? That's the scariest one because the person doing it actually thinks they're doing something what? They're doing something good. Well, whom you have some will now know whom you've seen on Asana. They're assuming they're doing something great. self righteousness, self righteousness, religious self righteousness is the scariest one. And it takes other forms to it comes up people from the right and says, Hey, I know you don't pray. But I mean, you do give charity. Right? You're you volunteer at a hospital. I know you what you do on the weekend, let's not talk about what you consume and what you do on the weekend. But I mean, you volunteer also, you do

00:11:51--> 00:12:33

some good humanitarian stuff. So I mean, okay, you got an issue on the side a little bit, what's the big deal, because you do these good things should you should be able to get away with some of the bad stuff, he comes at you from the right, he says, I will come at them in all kinds of ways, all directions. And then at the end of it, he makes this claim. And this is a very interesting claim he made in all of these directions. He's wanting us to disobey Allah, yes or no? Right. So you should be saying that after I'm done with them, you will see that they are not obedient, you will see that they are not what obedient, he says, You will see that they are not grateful. What I told you to

00:12:33--> 00:12:47

Xsara home shocking, you will not find most of them to be grateful. I was expecting him to say obedient, but he said why grateful? Or I would, I would, as I was expecting him to say, you will find that most of them will forget.

00:12:48--> 00:13:09

Because he makes us forget, he makes it slip. I was expecting him to say that. But he's he's had something else. He said you will find that most of them are not what? Now the question is grateful for what number one, grateful for the fact that you gave them the highest honor ever given to any creation, they will not honor that, that that award that they were given,

00:13:10--> 00:13:20

they're not going to be grateful for the fact that you allow them the greatest test that leads to the greatest reward. They're not going to be grateful for the fact that you directly speak to them.

00:13:21--> 00:13:56

They're not going to be grateful for that. They're not going to, you know, when someone sees themselves as less, well, if you think of yourself as worthless, then everything that you've been given also becomes what worthless? Everything you know, let's put the CD in simpler terms. So you understand when somebody is really depressed. And they think that they are nobody loves them. Nobody cares about them. They somebody has in their head, nobody loves me. Nobody cares about me. Then you take this person on a vacation, you get them a cake, you get you take them, you know for dinner, you do whatever you do with them, do they are they happy?

00:13:57--> 00:14:07

No, they can't they can't see value in anything that's being done for them because they have no value for who? themselves so none of the good things you do mean anything? That's all

00:14:10--> 00:14:20

that nothing makes them happy. He says once they are convinced basically once they're convinced that they're nothing more than animals then none of these good things that you've given them they'll ever appreciate

00:14:21--> 00:14:53

none of these good things they'll appreciate what I told you to accept a home shocking they will not be you'll find that they're not grateful. You're gonna find that they are usually living in complaint that's how I'll get them they're gonna complain, complain, complain. And that's what I know. They're not being grateful. I can come at them from right left front back. I can get them man, what did you do extra homeshare kidding. Allah says now to him now we're again we're listening to this entire conversation. I keep repeating that so it sticks in your head. Oh, Allah clergymen Hamid OMA Madura. He says to him, Get out of here you've been humiliated

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

and you're mudhole but hold actually means that you are being crushed on your own. This is an M

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

If you take a piece of paper and you crumple it up, and you press it harder, it becomes a smaller ball and you press it even harder, it becomes a smaller, smaller ball. Allah is describing the devil. He's got these negative thoughts inside of him. And his own thoughts are crushing him constantly. They're, they're squeezing him constantly. He's mudhole nobody's doing that to him. He's doing that to himself. He's doing that himself. And Allah says, By the way, this idea that you know, some people ask me this, you know, when I when I teach the story, some people ask me fun questions like that. I have a question, I think, what's your question? What if he does tell, but then what's

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

gonna happen?

00:15:38--> 00:16:02

Cuz he could tell by right, like he should. He should repent. And Allah's rule is if somebody repents, does Allah reject? Allah never rejects. So why does he do it? Allah describes because he's mudhole. His hate keeps crushing him and crushing him even more and crushing you. He's crushing himself, not allowing himself to stop and realize what he's doing.

00:16:03--> 00:16:43

Which is exactly what he wants for you. He wants you to have a negative emotion like hate, like resentment, like something that happened. When you blame someone he blames Allah right? He's decided to blame Allah. Now, doesn't matter if the Quran comes. He can hear the Quran to yes or no. He can hear the Quran because you have to say our bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim. Before you recite the Quran, which means he's hearing the Quran. So correcting his views is coming from Allah Himself. There's enough reason for him to do doba but he in his world is crushing himself. Were no words from the outside, they just bounce right off. They bounce right off and that's what he wants for people.

00:16:43--> 00:16:59

He wants them to be immersed in their own negative thinking. So no good. No word from Allah will ever affect them. Man, the misery of the devil and how he wants that to be contagious. Allah says Get out of here. Mazuma mud Hora lemon Toby Ackerman home

00:17:00--> 00:17:15

mean home. La La Nina Johanna min km h mine. This is one of the scariest hires you get out of here humiliated, crushing yourself. Then he says and whoever follows you among them.

00:17:16--> 00:17:17

Who's them?

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

us? Allah pointed at us. He says and whoever follows you among them. I shall absolutely fill Hell with all of you all together.

00:17:30--> 00:17:48

He didn't say all of them. He said all of you. He halfway through. He said, By the way, I was talking to them. I'm done with him. Now I'm talking to you. You follow him? I will put all of you in hell. Do you understand how serious this test is now? Because we just signed up a few minutes ago for Jana. Right? Like yeah,
