in two Muslim on

00:03:13--> 00:03:52

that all praises are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We thank Him, we praise Him. And we recognize that no matter how much we praise Him, and no matter how much we thank him, it will never be equivalent to that which is deserved. And we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to send his peace and blessings upon His Messenger Mohammed Salah lavon he was send them, his family, his companions and those that follow until the day of judgment. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to make us amongst them and to join us with them in the highest level of Jonathan for the dose and the companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to make us amongst those who witness the face of our

00:03:52--> 00:04:03

Lord as the agenda, the greatest bounty that could ever be given on a daily basis, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us that pleasure along I mean, their brothers and sisters.

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

As we sit here today in this salon Juma

00:04:09--> 00:04:54

as every single lecture and every single Islamic gathering, it's always the case that you have a variety of people, all of us are sitting here together with the intention of fulfilling our obligation of salata Juma, but at the same time, within this very room, if there's 300 or 400 or 500 people here, there is 800 or 1000 thoughts that are going through our heads. And each person has come here with a different mindset. Some of us are here and we're still thinking about our jobs. We're still thinking about that that which we left behind, and that which we will go to after salata Juma. Some of us are here looking for a while effect. What's the man going to say this week? What's

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

going to impress me this week? What's going to change my heart this week. Some of us are just hearing

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Because we have to be here. Some of us put our dunya on the on the shelf with our shoes. Some of us have come here. And we are waiting for something to come from a loss of Hannah who it's either to completely change our hearts and their brothers and sisters, I want us to imagine the whole TVA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam for a moment or so last summer love it was said it would not stand on the men bow. And while the Sahaba with some new facts that they've never heard, bring some sort of, you know, idea or some sort of concept that they've never heard of before. Also la sala la honey was selling did not come on the member and come and say something new to the Sahaba. In fact,

00:05:44--> 00:06:26

the messenger is on the law and he was selling his coat was were extremely precise. His hood was were shorts and as their nmsa. Most of it was from certain cloth. And it was as Allah subhanho wa Taala referred to it in the Quran, nothing but Vicar, a reminder, a reminder to the Sahaba. And a reminder and its nature is not something that you've never heard before. It's something that reminds you of something that you've heard before, and it brings out the best in you. The hearts were ready to receive it. That's why in the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam although his foot was were simple and to the point and they were reminders in their nature, as it has enrolled over

00:06:26--> 00:07:12

the allotted time what Rahim Allah says, whenever the Sahaba would leave the masjid, after salata Juma, they would leave behind puddles from their tears. Think about that for a moment. The same words that we started off our football with today more or less with with hazard. Were the same words that to fade of nama dosi Rahim Allah, Allah, Allah Allah when he came from a dose the physician so it's not because he was someone who was so simple minded. He was intelligence. He was the doctor of his tribe. He was the one who uphold a lot of the low tide. I knew it except a slap on his hand, because he was from his tribe. He was someone who was at such a class who belonged to such an

00:07:12--> 00:07:59

intellectual group, that the people from his tribe were afraid that whenever he went and he heard the words of muscle muscle a lot more it was set up, something might happen to him. They knew how intelligent he was. But this man of the allowed Thailand who was advised to ignore a Salafi Salah to place cotton in his ears to not listen to a word that he said, would accept Islam based on in Al Hamdulillah Navajo monastery. wanna study? The same words? That we start off every single Hello with? That everyone looks at the Imam blankly when he's saying I'm like, Okay, once you're gonna get to the real topic, it was the same words, and their brothers and sisters, this is what I want to do

00:07:59--> 00:08:39

today. I want all of us to think about this. Why is it that our hearts do not have the capacity that the hearts of the Sahaba had? Why is it that our hearts do not reflect upon the foot and the way that the Sahaba reflected on the Quran? What is it about the words that they were hearing that was different from the words that were hearing, except that it was from a different mouth than it was from the most honorable, honorable mouth of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But it was the same words that they would hear Friday, every single Friday. It was the same for Adam that we recite the same for us that we rush through that our hearts do not become affected by at all it's the same

00:08:39--> 00:08:43

exact reminder it was nothing but victory.

00:08:44--> 00:09:24

And in order to truly illustrate this dear brothers and sisters, we go to the life of all of them follow the law of Thailand. And I know everyone has heard the story of the hubbub of the Aloha Tower. And we all love all the allowed to Orlando and your messages is named after Ramadan. photocurable outside I know so I can't really tell you anything new. But the story of amadablam kebab law the law of Thailand illustrates something magnificent. It illustrates how one man if he does not want to be moved, can be as stubborn as can be. But once he allows himself to be moved can be the most influential person in the world.

00:09:25--> 00:09:59

And an unbelievable change can take place in him the story of Thailand whose exposure to the world and does not come from sort of Baja the story of armors exposure to Qur'an comes way before that the same words we recite all of the allowed Thailand was someone who was constantly drunk. We all know the story of the line. One is Julia, someone who would bury his daughter alive. Imagine how hard she has to be to do that. Someone who was so deep in his ignorance of a loss

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

hadn't heard that when he reflects on his story of worship before Allah azza wa jal, he talks about when he used to come to their version of heights, and he didn't find that God. So he takes dates and he puts them on a pole on on a branch and he puts that grunts together and he starts to worship that and then he eats his own gods. That's that's what Amaro de la Han was like before I slept. That's what the second most influential person after the prophets and our Dean was like, that's what the man who also lost him said no cannon, a VM in baggy Locanda Amato, that if there was to be a prophet after me, it would have been or was like, that's what the man who Rasulullah Sai Salaam says that

00:10:42--> 00:11:24

there were people in the oma that came before you the nations that came before you that were spoken to by the angels. They had some sort of instinct that was magnificent that no other people would have. And if there's anyone in my own life that's like that it's almost on the allow. He was a person who used to get drunk every single nights do away with his oxygen every single night his intellect every single night. And the only time that he would consider worship is whenever he had no one to get drunk with when he looks for people to get drunk with him, and he finds that his buddies are not there. He says well you know what, let me go consider somebody badly right now. Let me go

00:11:24--> 00:11:58

consider an act of worship. Let me go to the cabinet and do some some Co Op or something like that. I don't have anything to get drunk with tonight the same way that we think if there's a Lakers game I don't think the mustard is as cool as it is when there isn't a Lakers game or for the older generation when crickets going on although everyone's awake at four o'clock in the morning slot the pheasant I'm sure is not as packed as it should be. But you know what, when there is no cricket and there's no Lakers game, let's go to the message let's benefits let's do some a bad so we can feel good about ourselves. It's not priority, but let's infuse some data in there. So a lot of the a lot

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

of Thailand who decides to go to the Kava

00:12:01--> 00:12:44

and this is where he finds it. Muscle a lot biting he was selling them alone. reciting for an in the middle of the night. What a perfect opportunity to do away with him some a lot on he was telling, but you know what? He's curious. I wonder what he's reciting. So he says that I crept under the cloth of the cab, and I went around the Kava to wear a hula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was reciting until I was face to face with him. So Pamela Think about this. I was face to face with him. The only thing between them was that thin cloth of the cabinet. And I was listening to the words that he was reciting. This is his first exposure to the Quran. What is also muscle a lot of audio so I'm

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

reciting certain hacker

00:12:46--> 00:12:56

and he's listening to these beautiful words. But you know what? His heart doesn't have the capacity to accept these words yet. So he says he must be a poet.

00:12:57--> 00:13:12

He must be a poet. These words are too incredible. He must be a poet. He didn't think to himself, this must be revelation. He must be a potent then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited why Mount tonisha en el

00:13:13--> 00:13:17

nino. These are not the words of a poet. Little Do you believe?

00:13:18--> 00:13:33

So he's astonished? And he says, Well, in that case, he must be a soothsayer. How does he know what I'm thinking? He's reading my thoughts. This can't possibly be revelation. He must be a soothsayer. Well, we only carry him on enough.

00:13:38--> 00:14:22

Yo Rob Vila Lemmy, and these are not the words of a soothsayer either literal, do you remember? But these are the this is the revelation from the Most High. What is his response the first time he got sick, he was so affected, that he got sick that he went to his house and he was confused. What is it that just happened? But the way he reacts to his confusion the first time is not that let me consider that this might be revelation. He says you know what, this whole thing is getting me so bundled up inside let me just go kill Russell Russell, a lot of it was so if I kill him, I won't be confused anymore. Hello, look at his mindset, his mentality.

00:14:23--> 00:14:56

And we all know what happens there. And I'm gonna fast forward a bit to the second exposure of armor on the low tide and go to the Quran Surah Taha after he realizes how reckless of a person he is when he slaps his own sister, when he has beaten a noble man, and he sees the blood from his own sister. And he realizes that this is not something that's befitting of a man and he says, Let me read what you guys are reading. This time he has the capacity. This time he wants to read

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

and he opens the he reads from that quote and from that

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

See, por la

00:15:05--> 00:15:05

00:15:07--> 00:15:13

Fe auto Li y manga you know whom I wanna

00:15:34--> 00:15:41

listen to how beautiful these words Baja, we did not reveal this for an on you the task

00:15:43--> 00:15:47

to cause you distress in that has kiloton Lima yaksha.

00:15:48--> 00:16:03

Except for a person, a reminder, the main yaksha for a person at this point who has the capacity at this point, who has some fear of Allah, as Louisa, at this point has some humility.

00:16:04--> 00:16:12

This is a revelation from the one who created the heavens and the earth and everything that is in between them are rockin and rollin. opsis Stella

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

merciful ascended from

00:16:16--> 00:16:23

everything around us, the heavens and the earth and everything that is within and between belongs to Abraham.

00:16:24--> 00:16:54

And so Pamela, then, from that moment on, you have a man who's willing to go to law school last summer, a lot of it was seller, who not only is considering this might be revelation, although I want you to really think about this, their brothers and sisters, which one was a more powerful experience? Think about this. Paul has a beautiful silver. But if I'm standing in front of a person who's responding to all of my thoughts, that's a more powerful experience than blah Ha.

00:16:56--> 00:17:14

But listen to his reaction this time, he goes to the muscle a lot harder. He was some and he wants to take this Dean out to the public, as our beloved No, Mr. O'Donnell the Allahu anhu says the Islam of Omar was a victory for this Deen the Islam of Omar was

00:17:15--> 00:18:01

was honor and glory. And he goes and he's looking for people to proclaim His no new face to he's looking for Jehovah he knocks on her door. I'm a Muslim now and tells him something that I really can't mention in the book by guests right? May Allah Curse you, may your Lord curse you. And he's looking for someone to spill the news. He's looking for the Fox News and the CNN and all these people have met canal so that they can get the word out so he can stand firm on his faith. Although this experience was not as powerful as the first one in a matter of 24 hours. Almost all the time, I had completely taken this Dean and his own spirituality to a new level. And Islam was being

00:18:01--> 00:18:05

proclaimed in the streets of Mecca and he was fighting for it and he was sacrificing for us.

00:18:06--> 00:18:59

What's the difference there brothers and sisters. The second time around his called his heart had the capacity to accept that which was being recited as the Mammon was any Rahim Allah says Aslan and the Baha Akan regiment ministry MC feeble haha well documented pommery that Allah one ohmmeter ferrata has 100 agenda for higher sufa in a matter of a moment, as Lama before, just a few words of ply, and he was more beautiful than the sun. Whenever the sun has risen, and he was more beautiful than the full moon. He was clear in his Islam than the full moon. He lit this oma up he brought this Alma to its glory for the halogen. hypertufa entered into paradise and he greeted it and it greeted

00:18:59--> 00:19:13

him. But it all came from a few words, but his heart had the capacity to accept it. Now I want you to think about these two incidents, and the incident of failure of nama dosi. And consider this one idea from the

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

FLIR.

00:19:19--> 00:19:21

Mr. Lubin elbows?

00:19:23--> 00:19:27

Don't they contemplate the poor? And are their hearts locked,

00:19:28--> 00:19:39

or their hearts locked? And I want you to think very, very profoundly about the difference between those men and us. And the difference between Alma part one and part two.

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

If you are already reading the poor end, and you don't have the capacity to listen to what the Quran is telling you, you don't have the capacity to listen to multiple hacha these words are nothing to you. These words are routine for you. Then there's a problem there. And many of us will sit and think

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

Why is it that the Quran doesn't affect me? Many of us complain. All of us have this problem. We're definitely not like the Sahaba where we leave the massages, then we put tears all over the place. We're definitely not like that. And we all complain. We're all sad about this. If you're not sad, that's even a greater indication that you need to be scared. We're all sat over this, how come I cannot have the same amount of pressure as those men? Why doesn't my heart get affected like that?

00:20:28--> 00:20:56

Because if you read the Quran, dear brothers and sisters, and if you listen to the hospital Hajj if you listen to all these words, praising Allah subhanho wa Taala if your heart does not have the capacity to absorb, it's if your heart is already full of something else other than Allah subhanho wa Taala if your heart has holes in it from the sins that you've committed, there is no way that you're going to be able to accept it the way that those men accepted it.

00:20:57--> 00:21:11

And a lot as a result tells us very, very, very in a very profound manner the reason why the Godfather did not want to listen to the poor and the reason why the poor and had no effect on the poor at all and either to

00:21:12--> 00:21:18

him a tuna ina por la la Vina Cabo de la

00:21:22--> 00:22:10

si movie, if you recite the I OS of Eliza was done on them. Call alladhina cafaro Cooper means to reject call for means to reject call for means to conceal. They were concealing the truth they were concealing everything that they knew to be true. They said to the truth when it came to them and this is not the traditional way of composing a sentence. But a lot as always, as already mentioned there attribute of Khufu before he mentioned why they were rejecting the Quran. Allah Allah Dena careful and happy Ramadan. They said whenever the truth came to them has a sexual movie. Amir Kowloon after all. They're constantly making excuses up he made this all up. Why is it that a lot of

00:22:10--> 00:22:23

agenda is saying that this is their problem, because the laws of Excel also tells us whenever the IRS or recited upon them can be wrong either.

00:22:26--> 00:22:31

There is a stain on their hearts, their hearts are covered because of that which they used to do.

00:22:32--> 00:23:09

And they already had an ulterior motive, they already had an agenda to reject the Quran. When you read the Quran, the brothers and sisters, are you ready to accept what it tells you? Are you ready to accept its rulings? Are you ready to do as it tells you to do? Or are you reading it already with some hesitation? I want to read sort of because it makes me feel good. I want to read one of the nice sutras that don't talk about hell too much. You know I'm not too comfortable with Surah Nisa. That one's not progressive enough for me. You're already reading it with a motive to push it away. And you wonder why it's not affecting your heart. And the second thing dear brothers and sisters,

00:23:10--> 00:23:15

how many sins have you committed that already black in your heart so that you cannot appreciate what's being said?

00:23:16--> 00:23:57

How do you expect a loss of Hamlet's Allah to allow you to absorb this gift of the Quran? When whenever you came to the masjid, you were involved in how and when you leave the message that you're involved in how long? How do we expect a loss of handholds Allah to grant us this beautiful gift. When we have already convinced ourselves that whenever we leave this message, I'm going to text message someone I shouldn't be text messaging in the first place. I'm involved in a harm relationship. My money is how long I'm already planning the sins for today, while I'm in the cookbook. What's my sin going to be today? How can we expect a loss of heroines Allah to enlighten

00:23:58--> 00:24:39

our hearts and illuminate our hearts when we've already filled it with so much garbage and junk when we are disobedient to our parents? When we are oppressive towards our families? How can we expect these things to happen? So before you can accept the poor and before I can accept the poor and before we can be brought to tears by before we can accept it, our heart has to have the capacity or else we're nothing more than order number one with a nice cover. We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us among those who recite the ayat of Allah azza wa jal and who are affected by them and who do as are commanded from Allah subhanho to Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, akula

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

Kalia those

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

of you who will follow him

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

Alhamdulillah I mean what are one he learned a lot I mean, what are people to lose appeal a lot more suddenly was tell him about a karate Cora silica Mohammed in Seoul a lot when he was selling them.

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

While he was talking to us, tell him to Seaman kathira. The brothers and sisters as I move on to the salon, I just want to mention one more incident with a mirror menino model the alcohol tied on

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

because this is an incident that truly puts us all to shame.

00:25:15--> 00:25:24

Imagine this sitting in this gathering, armor hapa Villa live naraba and hubub. May Allah be pleased with them.

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

And they're reflecting on the torture that they used to go through for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now they're sitting at the times where Islam has reached its peak. They're reflecting on the days that they used to be harmed about the Allahu anhu showing his back his skinless back.

00:25:43--> 00:26:26

Because his master used to pour the coal down his back below the law of Thailand reflecting on the torture that he went through. And all the Alon who asks bill, Allah murabaha the Allahu anhu a very simple question, says Yama when they were torturing you, I want you to think about this. How did we live here slap Bilal heard Islam, Bilal accepted Islam on the basis of the attacks on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam not hearing a word from the messenger sallallahu wasallam himself not hearing a single idea or letter or app not hearing the single Hadith not hearing the use of esters or a monster Roger Roger, someone who's gonna you know, all of a sudden enlighten them. He didn't

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

hear any of that. It's literally like someone sitting in his house watching Fox News or watching whatever that council woman's name is that was attacked Deborah Polly attacking Islam and saying, Wow, I want to be Muslim and I'm ready to die for it. It's something that doesn't make much sense. But below the Allahu anhu is ready to die for it. And almost all the Allahu anhu asks him a simple question. Yeah, Mila.

00:26:51--> 00:26:59

How come when you were being tortured, the only thing you were saying was I hadn't I had one. One.

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

You know what he says all the time? He says, Yeah, I mean,

00:27:06--> 00:27:10

had I known anything other than I hadn't? I hadn't, I would have said it.

00:27:12--> 00:27:54

panela think about how powerful of a statement that is. We recycle who allow our head all the time. All he knew was one God, one God one God and that was enough for him to ready to be ready to die for his team. We have people coming all over the world. People that are accepting Islam. We have sister Lauren booth who's coming Tony Blair's sister in law. There's the banquet tomorrow that she's going to be at. You have all of these different people coming to Islam. You have people that are brought to tears by La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Allah so Allah, in my own messages, I saw it with my own two eyes, a young sister who was so overcome by tears that she could not even pronounce the Shahada and

00:27:54--> 00:28:37

a 65 year old woman crying after that and saying I've been saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah my entire life and I never once cried over it. What's the difference between me and her? The capacity of the heart is different their brothers and sisters, eliminate the poisons that are not allowing you to appreciate the support and eliminate all of those things, the ulterior motives that cause you to be hesitant when reciting certain chapters of the Quran. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from Allah. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless us with the capacity to appreciate the Quran and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to raise us on the Day of Judgment reciting his words and

00:28:37--> 00:29:16

saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah We ask Allah subhana wa tada that those are our last words in this dunya we live by it and we die by Allah.

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

Sort of instinct that was magnificent that no other people would have. And if there's anyone in my own way that's like that it's almost on the allow. He was a person who used to get drunk every single night's do away with his oxygen every single night his intellect every single night. And the only time that he would consider worship is whenever he had no one to get drunk with when he looks for people to get drunk with him, and he finds that his buddies are not there. He says, Well, you know what, let me go consider somebody badly right now. Let me go consider an act of worship. Let me go to the cabinet and do some some Co Op or something like that. I don't have anything to get drunk

00:30:39--> 00:31:09

with tonight the same way that we think if there's a Lakers game I don't think the mustard is as cool as it is when there isn't a Lakers game or for the older generation when crickets going on. Although everyone's awake at four o'clock in the morning slot the pheasant I'm sure is not as packed as it should be. But you know what, when there is no cricket and there's no Lakers game, let's go to the message let's benefits. Let's do some a bad so we can feel good about ourselves. It's not priority, but let's infuse some data in there. So a lot of the a lot of Thailand who decides to go to the Kava

00:31:10--> 00:31:52

and this is where he finds it a whole lot of a lot of writing he was selling them alone. reciting for an in the middle of the night. What a perfect opportunity to do away with him some a lot on he was selling, but you know what? He's curious. I wonder what he's reciting. So he says that I crept under the cloth of the cab, and I went around the caravan to wear a suit last summer long Harley was stolen was reciting, until I was face to face with him. panela think about this. I was face to face with him. The only thing between them was that thin cloth of the cabinet. And I was listening to the words that he was reciting. This is his first exposure to Quran what is also lasala audio seven

00:31:52--> 00:31:54

reciting sutras and haka.

00:31:55--> 00:32:05

And he's listening to these beautiful words. But you know what, his heart doesn't have the capacity to accept these words yet. So he says, He must be a poet.

00:32:06--> 00:32:20

He must be a poet. These words are too incredible. He must be a poet. He didn't think to himself, this must be revelation. He must be a poet. Then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited why mount policia en el

00:32:22--> 00:32:26

nino. These are not the words of a poet. Little Do you believe?

00:32:27--> 00:32:42

So he's astonished? And he says, Well, in that case, he must be a soothsayer. How does he know what I'm thinking? He's reading my thoughts. This can't possibly be revelation, he must be a soothsayer. Well, are we following him on enough?

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

Yo,

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

yo, rob

00:32:49--> 00:33:31

me? And these are not the words of a soothsayer either. literal, do you remember? But these are the this is the revelation from the Most High. What is his response the first time he got sick, he was so affected, that he got sick that he went to his house and he was confused. What is it that just happened? But the way he reacts to his confusion the first time is not that let me consider that this might be revelation. He says you know what this whole thing is getting me so bundled up inside let me just go kill Russell Russell allow it was so if I kill him, I won't be confused anymore. Hello, look at his mindset, his mentality.

00:33:32--> 00:34:04

And we all know what happens there. And I'm going to fast forward a bit to the second exposure of armor on the low tide and go to the Quran Surah Taha after he realizes how reckless of a person he is when he slaps his own sister, when he has beaten a noble man, and he sees the blood from his own sister. And he realizes that this is not something that's befitting of a man and he says let me read what you guys are reading. This time he has the capacity. This time he wants to read

00:34:05--> 00:34:10

and he opens the way he reads from that corner and from that sheet for her.

00:34:13--> 00:34:22

Kerala eco Anna Nita spa Illa ki Raja limi yaksha

00:34:25--> 00:34:30

Allah Allah, Allah subhana wa tiller Allah, Allah,

00:34:31--> 00:34:36

Allah, our sister our level math is Santa

00:34:37--> 00:34:39

Fe all the women.

00:34:43--> 00:34:50

Listen to how beautiful these words are. For her. We did not reveal this will add on you the task or

00:34:51--> 00:34:56

the cause you distress in that has kiloton Lima yaksha.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

Except for a person, I remind

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

Under the my yaksha. For a person at this point who has the capacity at this point who has some fear of Allah as Alicia, at this point has some humility.

00:35:12--> 00:35:20

This is a revelation from the one who created the heavens and the earth and everything that is in between them are rockin and rollin. opsis Stella,

00:35:22--> 00:35:24

the Most Merciful ascended from

00:35:25--> 00:35:31

everything around us, the heavens and the earth and everything that is within and between belongs to Abraham.

00:35:33--> 00:36:03

And so Pamela, the, from that moment on, you have a man who's willing to go to law school law some A lot of it was seller, who not only is considering this might be revelation, although I want you to really think about this, their brothers and sisters, which one was a more powerful experience? Think about this ball has a beautiful silver. But if I'm standing in front of a person who's responding to all of my thoughts, that's a more powerful experience than blah Ha.

00:36:05--> 00:36:14

But listen to his reaction this time, he goes to the soul muscle lahardee with some and he wants to take this Deen out to the public as

00:36:15--> 00:37:00

well. The Allahu anhu says the Islam of Omar was a victory for this Deen the Islam of Omar was there as there was honor and glory. And he goes and he's looking for people to proclaim His no new faith to his look looking for amo jehlen he knocks on Abuja, his door. I'm a Muslim. Now nobody tells him something that I really can't mention in the hook by guests right and a lot of curse you may your Lord curse you. And he's looking for someone to spill the news. He's looking for the fox news and CNN and all these people have met canal so that they can get the word out so he can stand firm on his faith. Although this experience was not as powerful as the first one. In a matter of 24 hours.

00:37:01--> 00:37:02

Almost all the low tide

00:37:03--> 00:37:07

had completely taken this Dean and his own spirituality to a new level.

00:37:08--> 00:37:14

And Islam was being proclaimed in the streets of Mecca and he was fighting for it and he was sacrificing for us.

00:37:15--> 00:37:39

What's the difference there brothers and sisters the second time around his his heart had the capacity to accept that which was being recited as the Mammon was any Rahim Allah says Aslan and ba ba. Ba can edgemont Minister Dempsey feeble ha ha. well documented pommery that Allah one oh metaphora additional agenda is

00:37:41--> 00:38:24

in a matter of a moment. As libido Slava, just a few words of law. And he was more beautiful than the sun. Whenever the sun has risen, and he was more beautiful than the full moon. He was clear in his Islam than the full moon. He lit this oma up he brought this oma to its glory, for the whole agenda for hyah hyah entered into paradise and he greeted it and it greeted him. But it all came from a few words, but his heart had the capacity to accept it. Now, I want you to think about these two incidents and the incident of fate of Nakamura dosi and consider this one ayah from the Quran, FLIR

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

Mariela, Lubin are both

00:38:32--> 00:38:36

don't they contemplate the poor? And are their hearts locked,

00:38:37--> 00:38:48

or their hearts locked. And I want you to think very, very profoundly about the difference between those men and us. And the difference between all mortal part one and part two.

00:38:49--> 00:38:58

If you are already reading the poor end, and you don't have the capacity to listen to what the Koran is telling you, you don't have the capacity to listen to.

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

These words are nothing to you. These words are routine for you, then there's a problem there. And many of us will sit and think, why is it that the Quran doesn't affect me, many of us complain. All of us have this problem. We're definitely not like the Sahaba where we leave the massages and we put tears all over the place. We're definitely not like that. And we all complain. We're all sad about this. If you're not sad, that's even a greater indication that you need to be scared. We're all sad over this. How come I cannot have the same amount of pressure as those men? Why doesn't my heart get affected like that?

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

Because if you read the Quran, dear brothers and sisters, and if you listen to the hospital Hajj if you listen to all these words, praising Allah subhanho wa Taala if your heart does not have the capacity to absorb it's if your heart is already full of something else other than Allah subhanho wa Taala if your heart has holes in it from the sins that you've committed

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

There is no way that you're going to be able to accept it the way that those men accepted it.

00:40:06--> 00:40:21

And a lot as a result tells us very, very, very, in a very profound manner, the reason why the Godfather did not want to listen to the poor and the reason why the poor and had no effect on the poor and all I let what he that Allah Allah.

00:40:24--> 00:40:27

Allah Allah vena cava, Athena

00:40:31--> 00:41:19

movie, if you recite the I OS of Eliza was done on them, call Allah vena cava cafaro co four means to reject. co four means to reject. co four means to conceal. They were concealing the truth they were concealing everything that they knew to be true. They said to the truth when it came to them and this is not the traditional way of composing a sentence. But Allah azza wa jal already mentioned their attribute of Khufu. Before he mentioned why they were rejecting the Quran. Allah Allah Dena, careful and happyland they said whenever the truth came to them has a special movie amiya coluna After all, they're constantly making excuses up he made this all up. Why is it that a larger agenda

00:41:20--> 00:41:34

is saying that this is their problem. Because the laws of Excel also tells us whenever the IRS or recited upon them can be wrong, raw Louis McCann was born

00:41:35--> 00:41:40

there is a stain on their hearts, their hearts are covered because of that which they used to do.

00:41:41--> 00:42:18

And they already had an ulterior motive, they already had an agenda to reject the poor and when you read the poor and the brothers and sisters, are you ready to accept what it tells you? Are you ready to accept its rulings? Are you ready to do as it tells you to do? Or are you reading it already with some hesitation? I want to read sort of because it makes me feel good. I want to read one of the nice suitors that don't talk about hell too much. You know, I'm not too comfortable with Surah Nisa. That one's not progressive enough for me. You're already reading it with a motive to push it away. And you wonder why it's not affecting your heart. And the second thing dear brothers and sisters,

00:42:19--> 00:42:24

how many sins have you committed that already black in your heart so that you cannot appreciate what's being said?

00:42:25--> 00:43:07

How do you expect Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow you to absorb this gift of the Quran. When whenever you came to the masjid, you were involved in how and when you leave the message that you're involved in how long? How do we expect a loss of handholds Allah to grant us this beautiful gift. When we have already convinced ourselves that whenever we leave this message, I'm going to text message someone I shouldn't be text messaging in the first place. I'm involved in a harm relationship. My money is how long I'm already planning the sins for today while I'm in the notebook. What's my sin going to be today? How can we expect Allah subhanaw taala to enlighten our

00:43:07--> 00:43:48

hearts and illuminate our hearts when we've already filled it with so much garbage and junk when we are disobedient to our parents, when we are oppressive towards our families? How can we expect these things to happen? So before you can accept the poor and before I can accept the Quran, before we can be brought to tears by before we can accept it, our heart has to have the capacity or else we're nothing more than order number one with a nice cover. We asked a loss of hand which added sneakers among those who recite the ayat of Allah azza wa jal and who are affected by them and who do as are commanded from Allah subhanho to Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, akula Kalia

00:43:48--> 00:43:48

those

00:43:50--> 00:43:52

of you who will follow him

00:43:59--> 00:44:19

Alhamdulillah Hiro galantamine, what are one Illa avoiding What are people to lose Sakina Allahumma salli wa sallam about a karate Kota silica Mohammed in a lot of money was selling them while he was suffering to sell them to Sleeman kathira. The brothers and sisters as I move on to the salon, I just want to mention one more incident with a mural menino model the alcohol tied on

00:44:20--> 00:44:23

because this is an incident that truly puts us all to shame.

00:44:24--> 00:44:33

Imagine this sitting in this gathering, almost nil hapa Villa live Nora bar and hubub in a lot may Allah be pleased with them.

00:44:34--> 00:44:51

And they're reflecting on the torture that they used to go through for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now they're sitting at the times where Islam has reached its peak. They're reflecting on the days that they used to be harmed. How about the Allahu anhu showing his back his skinless back?

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

Because his master used to pour the cold out his back without all the law of Thailand reflecting on the torture that he went through.

00:45:00--> 00:45:41

And Omar robiola Han who asks, beloved navaho, the Allahu anhu a very simple question, says Yama when they were torturing you, I want you to think about this. How did we learn here Islam? Bilal heard Islam, Bilal accepted Islam on the basis of the attacks on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not hearing a word from the messenger sallallahu wasallam himself not hearing a single ayah or letter or app, not hearing the single Hadith not hearing the use of estas or a monster Raja has or someone who's gonna, you know, all of a sudden enlighten them. He didn't hear any of that. It's literally like someone sitting in his house watching Fox News, or watching whatever that council

00:45:41--> 00:45:58

woman's name is that was attacked Deborah Pauley attacking Islam and saying, Wow, I want to be Muslim and I'm ready to die for it. It's something that doesn't make much sense. But below the Allahu anhu is ready to die for it. And almoradi Allahu anhu asks him a simple question. Yeah, Mila.

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

How come when you were being tortured, the only thing you were saying was I hadn't had One. One.

00:46:09--> 00:46:13

You know what he says all the time? He says, Yeah, I mean,

00:46:15--> 00:46:19

had I known anything other than I hadn't? I hadn't, I would have said it.

00:46:21--> 00:47:03

panela think about how powerful of a statement that is. We recycle who allow I had all the time. All he knew was one God, one God one God and that was enough for him to ready to be ready to die for his team. We have people coming all over the world, people that are accepting Islam. We have sister Lauren booth who's coming Tony Blair's sister in law. There's the banquet tomorrow that she's going to be at. You have all of these different people coming to Islam. You have people that are brought to tears by La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Allah so Allah, in my own messages, I saw it with my own two eyes, a young sister who was so overcome by tears that she could not even pronounce the Shahada, and

00:47:03--> 00:47:46

a 65 year old woman crying after that and saying, I've been saying that ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah my entire life and I never once cried over it. What's the difference between me and her? The capacity of the heart is different dear brothers and sisters, eliminate the poisons that are not allowing you to appreciate the support and eliminate all of those things, the ulterior motives that cause you to be hesitant when reciting certain chapters of the Quran. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from Allah. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless us with the capacity to appreciate the Quran and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to raise us on the Day of Judgment reciting his words and

00:47:46--> 00:48:06

saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah We ask Allah subhana wa tada that those are our last words in this dunya we live by it and we die by Allah I mean a llama Fitzalan Nina will move nuts when Muslim you know when a Muslim not even homonymous in the Casimir on code emoji was there was a llama Fitzalan.
