Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

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

so the title is upping the ante right and you guys have been listening to lectures all day long, including multiple tomorrow.

00:00:15 --> 00:00:51

So I want to make sure that you guys actually upped the ante so I want you to do me a favor and wake up and the way that you're going to wake up usually if I was teaching a class I'd make everybody stand up and stretch but I'm not going to do that. I just want you to do me a favor inshallah to Allah. When I say tech bid for mercy mission, and for this incredible event that they've put together, the law, their incredible work, I want you to yell Allahu Akbar. At the loudest frequency that you have ever yelled in your life. I want this building to fall apart and rumble. Okay, you guys ready? This is gonna wake you up in South LA.

00:00:55 --> 00:01:00

Rochelle Mashallah. Mashallah, now somebody needs to reassure the authorities that nothing's going on in here.

00:01:01 --> 00:01:32

Play smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa wa ala alihi wa I mean when people are tuning in with Athena Lama somebody was sending robotic Allah avocado silica Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while Ernie he will talk to you a sudden him to * kathira their brothers and sisters a loss of Hannah hoods Allah says in the end was Sadie or Isla Mo Farah Timmy Robbie como Jonathan Otto has sama one out or a clean Allah subhanaw taala says and rush

00:01:34 --> 00:02:21

towards the forgiveness of your Lord and a paradise that is as vast as a some hour to an hour, the entire heavens and the earth. And it has been promised for 15 I want you to appreciate how special this is just for a moment. Because when we talk about the topic of the sun, before sun can be achieved, there has to be something that is called Tacoma. an axon is a level above sign is a step above. And I was somehow to LA reading a book called the principles of happiness. And there is a quote in there. And the book was based on these principles by a man by the name of Jose Addison, and I want you to listen very closely to what he said. He said that there are three levels or there are

00:02:21 --> 00:02:31

three things that are needed in order to live a happy life. Three things, you're taking notes, it's easy, it's not hard, inshallah something to do

00:02:32 --> 00:02:36

something to love, and something to look forward to

00:02:37 --> 00:03:14

Jose Addison, something to do something to love, and something to look forward to. Many times people go through the motions of this life, and they don't have any real purpose. They go through the motions of this life thinking that they're going to achieve happiness using the same ways and the same methods that so many people have sought to achieve happiness through and gained absolutely nothing but misery, and regrets and remorse. Because at the end of the day, they felt nothing. They saw nothing. They saw that their lives had went to waste.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:27

And many times people seek as my brother a model would say to be extraordinary, but they end up being extra ordinary, no purpose, no purpose.

00:03:28 --> 00:04:02

And here, when we look through these three principles, I want you to think about it before we refer back to the core. And why is it that we need these three things, if you have to have them, you will not be a happy person. And this is true islamically speaking too. But let's look at our lives for a moment, something to do something to love something to look forward to. Whenever our person tries to work towards retirement, and they've worked their entire lives to have an early retirement. And whenever you're a teenager, whenever you go to college and you're, you're usually susceptible to all the pyramid schemes and all those things that tell you that you can get rich and retire by the age

00:04:02 --> 00:04:16

of 25. And Mashallah, you'll be able to sit back what happens to people when they retire. What happens to people when they have money, what happens to people when they no longer have a necessity of working, you know what they want to do, they still want to work,

00:04:17 --> 00:04:50

they start to feel like they're losing meaning in their lives. So that's why you'll see people Subhanallah even towards the end of their lives, they have something to love. They have something to look forward to, but they have nothing to do. And because of that now we need to start thinking of work, they give themselves work, I need to walk around this much every day. I need to do this much every day because we all need to feel productive. We need to feel like there's action in our lives. We need to feel like we're working towards something we need to feel like we're being put to good use or else we feel like there is nothing left.

00:04:52 --> 00:05:00

Something to love. Many times people are very busy and they have a lot of work. They make a lot of

00:05:00 --> 00:05:08

Money, they go through the motions of this life muscle loss successful in every single aspect except for spirituality.

00:05:09 --> 00:05:29

And they their family starts to fall apart. their businesses are expanding, their wealth is expanding. their reputation is expanding, but the family's falling apart. The people that are friends with them are just friends with them because they want their money. And they no longer have any meaningful relationships. Because success has its price.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:37

They've got something to do. They've got something to look forward to. But they've got nothing to love, and life falls apart.

00:05:39 --> 00:06:06

The wealth becomes a punishment. The success becomes a punishment in this dunya to them. And then sometimes people have something to do and something to love. But you know, what happens to celebrities and people who went after fame, and who spent their entire lives trying to build the rep the rep wire so that they could get to a level where everybody admires them and everybody knows their names, you know what happens to them, they shave their heads bald and take a baseball bat and start beating people's cars.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:11

They commit suicide in hotel rooms.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:26

All they say they want they start having interviews on TV like Mr. Keene poor people and say All I want is to be able to go out with my family and have an ice cream cone without a camera in my face. Yes, salaam you had that.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:32

Nothing to look forward to the dunya wasn't all that it was made out to be.

00:06:34 --> 00:07:14

But unfortunately, most people will be sheep. And they'll go through these motions, and they have nothing. And you know what, dear brothers and sisters one of the most dangerous things from a dean perspective, one of the worst things that can happen to your faith is when you become part of status quo. Whenever you are on the brink of hypocrisy, because the only thing that you do is you meet the standards of society. The only thing that you do is you give just enough charity so that people want say, hey, you need to give some more charity. You go to the masjid just enough so people don't say hey, you need to go to the masjid. You do just enough you give just enough back so that people

00:07:14 --> 00:07:19

accept you so that you're meeting society's standards and why is that on the brink of hypocrisy?

00:07:21 --> 00:07:25

What are the two hardest Salawat according to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

I can't hear you guys.

00:07:29 --> 00:07:30

fudge it in Asia.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:41

Now Mashallah, when we look at SSL law, if you go to any method in the country, you'll find that eisah is the most crowded salaat and usually budget comes at a close number two.

00:07:43 --> 00:08:19

So we can all say Mashallah, there's no hypocrisy in the oma, right? We're all doing so well. Or maybe it was a loss I sent him said that because, you know, it's hard to wake up for a pheasant because you might oversleep and so on, so forth. And why did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that and what was the context of that? The context of that, dear brothers and sisters, is that the Manasa tea in the hypocrites would not bother themselves going to President Asia, because at those times, you didn't have chandeliers and lights and those types of things. You got a feather that in Asia, nobody would know you were there anyway. So hey, I'm meeting society's standards.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:22

Look, I'm there for the harasser monitor.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:25

Think about that for a moment.

00:08:26 --> 00:08:43

Meeting status quo, making sure that everything is okay in other people's eyes, making sure that I'm doing just enough, I give just enough I do just enough so people will say Mashallah, he's a good brother, Mashallah. She's a good sister.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:46

And in reality, you know what you're doing?

00:08:47 --> 00:08:55

You're just as guilty as Tiger Woods when he gets caught sleeping with 20 women and he stands up on a stage and he says, I am so sorry.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:14

Or john edwards in the United States, the senator, the people's champion, who got caught cheating on his cancer stricken wife after they lost their son in a car accident. And everyone's analyzing how sincere will his apology be on national TV? I am so sorry.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:38

Now, before that happens, these individuals, these people who get caught and exposed, they were picture perfect individuals. They were in the magazines with their families holding their kids, Mashallah a role model for society. But in reality, you know what they were guilty of doing? They were putting a pretty face to a very ugly relationship.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:52

And many times we do that with a lot as though we put on a pretty face for an ugly relationship for a very dysfunctional relationship, but society can't know how bad it is.

00:09:53 --> 00:10:00

And think about that for a moment. Dear brothers and sisters, those people when they get caught, are they sad? Are they

00:10:00 --> 00:10:15

saying sorry, because they actually feel remorseful or are they saying sorry, because they face the consequences, the societal consequences of those actions because they got exposed? Where were you when you were actually in the process of committing all of the sin?

00:10:16 --> 00:10:22

It's just because they got exposed. Now let's take this back to our discussion about Assad.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:32

Remember, we said that there are three principles of happiness? What are they Hurry up saying back to me? You guys need to wake up something to

00:10:33 --> 00:10:33

and then

00:10:35 --> 00:10:35

and then

00:10:38 --> 00:10:54

all of this is answered in the idea that I read. What Sadie Oh, and rush something to do, either Mr. Tim Miller have become to the forgiveness of your Lord something to love what Jonathan Otto has Santa out.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:38

And a paradise that is as vast as the heavens in the earth, Allahu Akbar. They're figuring it out now and they're writing books on it. But Allah already spoke it 1400 years ago, spawn Allah and Allah subhana wa tada says, or a little Mottaki that has been prepared for those who are conscious of Allah subhanaw taala and they're being conscious of Allah subhanaw taala leads them to fear Allah subhanaw taala and being all the loss of how not to Allah and love Allah subhanho wa Taala it's not just any type of consciousness, because sometimes you're aware of someone watching you but you don't respect the presence of that person. enough to really fear them. You're conscious of Allah subhanaw

00:11:38 --> 00:12:12

taala and because you're conscious of Allah subhana wa Tada. You watch yourself and taqwa, dear brothers and sisters, we said it's a prerequisite to a son. Before we talk about our son. We have to talk about taqwa. And to summarize taqwa in one sentence, as the scholars say, tuck what is to avoid mrrc. To avoid the sense, as all our mental health follow the law of Thailand who said when you're walking through bushes, thorny bushes, and you're making sure that you're not getting poked, and if you get poked, you don't keep walking and letting your body tear up.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:36

When you get poked, you come back into your path, because before we can talk about excelling, we need to stay away from those things. We need to make sure that the relationship between us and Allah subhanaw taala does not have anything that will make it deficient that will make it dysfunctional, that will make it a pretty face to an ugly relationship. So Allah subhanaw taala says, or

00:12:38 --> 00:13:03

maybe na Rahim Allah to Allah, he has a beautiful Tafseer for the cya. Why does the loss of data talk about something to look forward to in Jenna? Because in dunya, you see people who have it all who get all the millions of dollars that they want, who by a private island and they're still miserable, because this is it. There's nothing left. And he says that a whole lot to Allah

00:13:04 --> 00:13:58

Jalla Darren Hera mahalo leeches or ebrt, Allah subhanaw taala. Because of that, the psychology Think about it. He has made the era the place where he will repaid the believers Leanna have II doubt la casa Narada and Europa home Allah because this world cannot fit what Allah wants to give us. doesn't have it. This world cannot fit what Allah wants to give us. Well, he and the whole agenda Dara Hamada and your Aplia home feed dad in law and because Allah has honored the believers to give, he has given them too much dignity and too much honor to give them something that will be given to them or to give them in a world that doesn't have any eternity allowance to give us

00:13:58 --> 00:14:07

something that lasts Well, a year or two highroad whatever car and the era is better and everlasting.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:19

Now, Allah subhanaw taala is going to give us the definition of time. Now that we make sure that there's nothing because you know what, I don't care how good I don't care how many flowers you bring to your wife.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:22

If you're cheating on your wife, it's not gonna help.

00:14:24 --> 00:14:35

I don't care how nice Your words are to your wife to the person that you love. If your actions are showing nothing but disrespect than those words become nothing. taqwa.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:50

Making sure that everything is selling, I have peace with my Creator. I'm at peace with my Creator. I'm aware of him and that's what drives me. Now a loss of Hannah Todd is going to give us the definition of a son

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

was Saudi Arabia in Amalfi rotimi Robbie como Jonathan Otto has summer out or a little Mata Ki Allah v.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:47

If you're going to sell wha wha, wha wha? Well tell the me in LA as well as the non us will la who your hip will Morrison in, listen to these definitions. Those who give in both hardship and an ease, and those who swallow their anger, and those who pardon people and allow loves a lesson in Allah loves those who excel. Think about this for a moments, you know their brothers and sisters, whenever there is a fundraiser, everyone's going to be looking around for the wealthy. If I'm doing the fundraiser, I'm going to be looking around, I'm going to ask the organizers of this conference, I'm going to say who are the usual donors? Who are the millionaires in this conference? Who are those

00:15:47 --> 00:15:56

who always give? Where are the doctors? Where are the engineers? Where are the people that are a high level? Those are who we need to identify to give FISA vitola.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:09

And no one's going to look to the one who's having a hard time in his life and say, Hey, you need to give FISA Beatty law. No one's gonna look to the blue collar worker and say, Hey, give me Sabina law. No one's gonna say that to him.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:57

People don't expect it. But a lot expected. People don't expect it. society doesn't expect it. What society expects is that those who have lots of money have to give a portion back. So celebrities and athletes who care nothing about the world, and who care nothing about social justice, and who cares nothing about the starving children in Africa will make sure that they establish a charity Foundation, because that's what society expects. But no one's going to come up to you. When you're having trouble paying your bills and say I give up the law, because it's not expected of you. But the person, the one who excels, expects that of himself. He puts himself to the test. And that's why

00:16:57 --> 00:17:08

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that one did hum exceeded in Belka and reward $100,000 homes.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:43

Think about that for a moment. How's that possible? Yes, little luck. Because Sahiba the guy who gave one he only had two, he only had two. Whereas the guy who had 100, who gave 100,000 had alfalfa he had a million 1000 by 1000. So which one suffered more as a result of what he gave? The guy who gave one that one didn't have means more in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala than the 100,000 dirhams. Why? It wasn't expected? It wasn't expected.

00:17:44 --> 00:18:30

What does that sound there brothers and sisters. Whenever jabril alayhis salaam asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Hades debris, and taboo la haka and Naka Torah, that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, as if you see him. And if you can't see him, then you know what, you know, he sees you. And that's what drives you. No one expects you to give whenever you're in hardship, but you know what, push yourself to give, push yourself to give, not because people expect it from you, not because society has those standards, but because your standard is with Allah subhanho wa Taala wild cow the meaning of life, and those who swallow their anger. You know, everyone expects you to

00:18:30 --> 00:18:46

have a cool head, and to not have a bad temper when everything is okay. But if someone was to walk up to you, and to call you a name, or to say something about your mother, or to offend you, or to insult your Kabila or your tribe, or whatever it is,

00:18:47 --> 00:19:10

then society expects you to respond. No one's gonna tell the guy that just got offended. Hey, you have no right to respond, though you have every right to respond. That's justice. You have every right to respond to that attack. You have every right to respond to that assault. You have every right to respond to that disrespect. Everyone expects you to respond.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:31

But you know what? That person has a different standard. Al Khalili mean LA, those who swallow their anger. You know, Subhanallah when we talk about anger, you know, it's not controlling your temper. When someone comes to you, and someone offends you. And you say, May Allah forgive you?

00:19:32 --> 00:19:50

Alive Fiddler caffee Elia Sam, hi, Kathy. May Allah forgive you. You're actually using that as an attack because you're telling the guy that you're wrong. May Allah forgive you. You're yelling it at him. Everyone expects you to do that. Or if it shows on your face, or if you go

00:19:54 --> 00:20:00

huffing and puffing, right? clenching your fists, letting it

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

So on your face, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with Abdullah Al Maktoum. You know what he did? eivissa? You know what I would say is this

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

literally, the two lines that you would see in your forehead that's verbose. If a person just does this

00:20:22 --> 00:20:23


00:20:24 --> 00:20:25


00:20:27 --> 00:20:51

Not May Allah forgive you, and may Allah do away with, you know, her booth. But he's a Meissen sallallahu sallam, he is the greatest market. Allah holds him to a higher standard. And you know what, you should hold yourself to a higher standard, just because people expect you to respond, just because it's justice for you to respond, hold yourself to a different standard, and swallow your anger. And say, Does Zach alive?

00:20:52 --> 00:21:01

Does that? Let it go? You know why? Because you want a law, who has every right to be angry with you and I

00:21:02 --> 00:21:04

to not be angry with us on the day of judgment?

00:21:06 --> 00:21:53

And then finally, Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, I've been on in the US and those who pardon people. If someone takes your rights, and this is the difference between an eye for an eye and a turn your other cheek. It's right in the middle. If someone takes your hack from you, you have every right to request it back. You have every right to demand justice. Islam gives you that right but Islam tells you what in the La Jolla little bit, well axon, Allah commands you enjoins you with justice, and compassion. What is the sign that a lot of talking about compassion, because justice without compassion will be worthless, you should show mercy. You should show compassion, you'll be

00:21:53 --> 00:22:00

rewarded and Salah but if you choose to take your right that's fine. If you don't know that he can I mean asmin more.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:22

That is a matter that requires determination as to who Allah his reward is with a loss of lost palletizers and sort of shorter. No one expects you to say let it go. society expects you to take care right back. But if you're a morson like apobec and acidic or the law of time, I want you to imagine the situation dear brothers and sisters

00:22:23 --> 00:22:28

apobec Casa de como de lo I know his daughter, I saw the law

00:22:29 --> 00:23:17

was slandered with the worst slander, accused in her chastity. And that hurt the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, horrible Beckett and loved more than Ayesha, and that hurt his own daughter. Not only that, but one of the men who passed the slender was misspelled a relative who apobec it all the time who used to give charity to on a routine daily basis. you imagine? If it turns out that the one who caused your daughter and your most beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who caused them that pain was one that you used to give money back that's used to give money to all the time. If anything, you can go to the guy and say, Look, I'm not gonna beat you down. I'm not gonna beat

00:23:17 --> 00:23:36

you with a baseball bat. But give me back the money. If anything, it's only normal. We would expect that we would do that. Go down and say at least give me that money. While I was giving you money to live you were slandering my daughter, give me my money back or at least go to him and say you should be ashamed of yourself.

00:23:37 --> 00:23:49

I don't want the money back but you should be ashamed of yourself. I will back it up the allow I know when he found out about the slander of I saw the low tide and He only said one thing.

00:23:50 --> 00:23:52

He said Subhan Allah was Mr.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

I'm not gonna give him charity anymore.

00:23:56 --> 00:24:02

Seriously, I'm not going to give him charity anymore. That's it.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:06

But on top of that, Allah azza wa jal reveals in the

00:24:07 --> 00:24:10

34 while you're

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

allowed to have born if it Allahu lecom.

00:24:15 --> 00:24:18

Let them forgive, and let them pardon.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:22

Don't you love that Allah will pardon you.

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

Subhana Allah will lie. If we remember this eye all the time. It would completely refine our holo can our character and completely redefine our interactions with one another.

00:24:37 --> 00:24:46

Wouldn't you love that Allah forgives you and pardons you because you know what on the day of judgment about so lustleigh salaam says man up salaries up?

00:24:49 --> 00:24:59

Whoever is held accountable, and another the wire in the home and so Eli Yeoman qiyamah funkadelic. As for the one who has asked

As for the one who receives his book in his right hand, he'll have an easy accountability. Well, soulless. iclm says daddy can

00:25:23 --> 00:25:30

that's the presentation of your deeds. But if Allah starts calling you out on each and every single one of your deeds

00:25:31 --> 00:25:34

or the you will perish and you will be punished.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:40

Manila yahama Durham whoever does not show mercy mercy will not be shown to him.

00:25:41 --> 00:26:09

You want a lots of pardon you pardon others because you're seeking the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allow you have been listening and Allah subhana wa tada loves the those who excel and one more I uh, dear brothers and sisters, a lot continues.

And they will never be able to bring themselves back to that same sin, over and over and over and over again, knowingly, being aware of Allah Subhana Allah watching them,

00:27:03 --> 00:27:31

their brothers and sisters, all of this that we just described as Exxon, all of this is called ignoring society's standards, ignoring the status quo, ignoring what people expect of you, and looking to what Allah expects of you. And looking to the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And not worrying about what other people say, and not worrying about what other people think. Only being concerned with the opinion of one

00:27:32 --> 00:27:33

a lot.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:41

And I just want to end with one thing, dear brothers and sisters and I want you to think about this. A lot as though it says in the

00:27:43 --> 00:27:46

little Nadine axon SNA was the

00:27:48 --> 00:27:56

for those who have a son is a listener, those who excel they will have an excellent reward and more

00:27:57 --> 00:28:05

now in her SNA his agenda, and we already mentioned here, what Allah Subhana Allah mentioned, what he has prepared for us in terms of an agenda.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:22

And that it's something that's not befitting to be given in this dunya because if it's given in this dunya then it won't fit. And if it's given in this dunya then it won't last. And dear brothers and sisters, the Sahaba asked are so lost a lot of us

00:28:24 --> 00:28:32

we understand the listener. We understand that Allah will give us an agenda. What's more than Jenna?

00:28:33 --> 00:28:42

What could possibly be more than Jenna? What is was the other one did the Prophet sallallahu it was Salaam say

00:28:44 --> 00:28:45

another era which

00:28:48 --> 00:28:54

another Illa Allah to stare at the face of Allah.

00:28:55 --> 00:28:58

The one who you were working for the whole time.

00:28:59 --> 00:29:32

The one who when you used to come to salaah as the brother was mentioning the SEC was mentioning you were coming back Calvin Mushtaq heart that was missing him. Looking forward to that conversation, that dialogue with Allah. The one who was that you were remembering when anyone was harming you, you would say and hamdulillah Allah will have something better. The one who when any hardship struck you, you remembered him and you said in 911 A Roger on we belong to Him and to Him we returned anyway.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:40

That one a loss pattern what's Allah getting a chance to stare at his face

00:29:41 --> 00:29:44

and some people get to stare at him and agenda every day.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:50

Some people have it twice a day. Some people have it once a week.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:55

getting a chance to consistently Look at him suparna hautala

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

because you love him

00:29:58 --> 00:30:00

and that love that. You have

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

For him, it drove you. Everyone has something that drives them. Everyone has something that gets them out of bed every morning. Everyone has something that drives them to work and gets them through the day. The believer has pursuing the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:30:18 --> 00:30:34

And even if I listened very closely to this, the mentality of the motion is as such, even if a law did not have a agenda prepared for us, or a Hellfire, from which we seek refuge in Him,

00:30:36 --> 00:30:38

you still would not disobey Allah.

00:30:39 --> 00:30:50

You would still love him. And that would still be enough of a driving force as automotive nikopol but are they allowed Tyler I know sad about sohei. But Rumi won't be allowed Tyler I know.

00:30:51 --> 00:30:54

Even if there was no Heaven or *,

00:30:55 --> 00:31:26

even if Allah subhanaw taala did not prohibit disobedience. Let me honestly, he would never be able to disobey Allah subhanaw taala because that's how intense His love is for him. I want you to think dear brothers and sisters, the next time you're in a situation, the next time you're in a gathering. The next time you think about who you are, the next time you think about the hadith of an aura of being strange. Ask yourself, are you even ascending amongst your family members?

00:31:27 --> 00:32:09

Are you even the person in your family? Or are you at a level less than your parents, less than your brothers and sisters, you need to ascend and set a different standard for yourself. Because you know what happens? We get divided into these cliques, you have the religious crowd, you have the secular crowd, you have the crowd that's in between. They'll perform all the rituals and things of that sort. But whenever there's a real inconvenience in life, they'll go back to the secularism and we belong to one of these crowds. Somehow you get fit into a crowd. Don't worry about the crowd. Think about Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if you are concerned with what Allah thinks of you,

00:32:10 --> 00:32:19

then you won't care what other people think of you, and that will drive you Have any of you ever heard of Maslow's hierarchy of needs? Raise your hand if you have?

00:32:20 --> 00:32:24

What is the top level of Maslow's hierarchy of needs?

00:32:25 --> 00:32:26

Somebody told me

00:32:29 --> 00:32:31

self actualization

00:32:32 --> 00:33:03

self actualization. You know what the definition of self actualization is? that the person becomes independent of the opinion of others panela the person has security, a sense of security, self esteem, confidence, self actualization, realizing that they don't need to worry about what other people think of them. They've set new standards for themselves. They have a mission. They have a vision.

00:33:04 --> 00:33:18

And what do we know from soufiane? Or the alotau? What did he say? Either so Harmon kellwood do fel kulu Hainan, for kulula de Falco to rob to rob.

00:33:19 --> 00:33:31

If you if I have your love, Oh Allah, then everything else becomes worthless. Because everything that's on top of this dirt is in and of itself, dirt.

00:33:32 --> 00:34:14

If I have your approval, if I have your love, if I have your standard, if I have your guarantee, and if I have your pleasure, your loved one. I don't care about anything else. The next time you find yourself in a fundraiser and you find yourself that you know I'm thinking about well, I don't have too much money I'm struggling, give, give to show a loss of Hannah, what's that? I'm only worried about what you think of me. The next time someone offends you or insults you. And everyone expects you to respond. Swallow your anger and smile in their face and say, Did

00:34:16 --> 00:34:18

you have any advice? Salaam Alaikum.

00:34:19 --> 00:34:34

The next time someone takes a write from you forego that right? Make draft for that person and say Oh Allah, I pardon that person in hopes that you would Pardon me. And the next time you go into your salon,

00:34:35 --> 00:34:59

make sure that the only one you're concerned about watching you is Allah Subhana which Allah and you visualize yourself standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a dialogue with Eliza. And with that dear brothers and sisters, we would achieve taqwa and we would achieve a son and we would achieve the reward of Allah subhana wa Tada. We ask Allah

00:35:00 --> 00:35:32

Hana to Allah to grant it to us. We ask a lot to love us. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us amongst those who love Him. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us amongst those upon whom he lavishes praise because you know what dear brothers and sisters right now, what is the loss of Hannah Tata saying to the Metallica, Allah saying to the angels that reported to him, said we found this mejlis we found this gathering of people remembering you.

00:35:33 --> 00:35:41

Allah subhanaw taala is saying, if he loves us, yeah, gibreel in the head Boolean

00:35:42 --> 00:36:18

algebra. I love that person. So you love him too. So jabril will love him. And jabril alehissalaam we'll go and we'll call upon all of the inhabitants of the heavens and say in the law, your Hippo, funan Habu, Allah subhana wa tada loves this person. So you should all love him too, for you HIPAA law. And so all of the inhabitants of the heavens love him. And as for the earth, the people of the earth, the inhabitants of the earth, are soulless. iclm says for you old, old old cabal of an adult,

00:36:19 --> 00:36:59

the love of the people is placed in their hearts, they start to love that person. Allah subhanaw taala allows it to descend upon them and a loss of Hannah to add on when he sees this gathering, inshallah to Allah. Allah, us the angels. What are they coming together for? Why are they here? What do they want? And Allah knows the answer. And it's just to remember you on a Friday night, when they could have been out party, when they could have been out at some Tao at some social gathering when they could have been out here there. They chose to come and remember you, Allah subhanaw taala says to the angels, bear witness that I have forgiven all of them.

00:37:01 --> 00:37:03

I have forgiven all of them.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:40

And the angels say But yeah, Allah. There's that person amongst them who's only here because his family dragged them. There is that person who's there because you know what he wanted to go meet his friends, social gathering, whatever, there's that person that's there for some business connection, something like that. And what will Allah subhanaw taala say, he's forgiven to because no person accompanies such people or sits in such gathering except that he would be forgiven. So we asked a lot to forgive us and make us from an worsening alumna. I mean, does aka below height on the earth wanting a hottie? A cola cola. That was the Hollywood icon was Salam. Wa Alaykum warahmatullahi

00:37:40 --> 00:37:41
