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

So,

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

first and foremost, just to kind of reiterate, Today Tonight install time, I'm going to address the other aspect of today's talk. Today

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

we talked about this concept of being a silent

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

on,

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

the person who gives implicit approval to any action does not belong

00:00:41--> 00:01:19

in the Western Digital audience. And with that, you know, you got so many different categories, obviously, today, we were focusing on the concept of injustice, and we were looking at it from that angle, that a person who stands by and watches another person, you know, have been justice for transgressions committed against him and not do anything about it, then that person is just as guilty as the, and it's kind of, you know, from a standpoint of injustice, it's obvious, right? It's a freaking alarm. And it's something that was really interesting, you know, this article came on Yahoo, I don't know if you guys saw it just a few days ago, actually. And it was called the loss of

00:01:19--> 00:01:39

humanity, the loss of humanity. And they were somewhere in this two year old girl in Beijing, Chinese girl. And if you guys saw that video, runs into the street, and event runs over, in front of everybody slows down. And, um, you know, the size of the choices that, you know, obviously, you should get out or not.

00:01:44--> 00:01:53

Right, and there were 18 bystanders, no one said anything, no one did anything, nobody industries, everyone just looked to the side saw

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

that animal and kept walking until,

00:01:58--> 00:02:32

you know, as the article said, of the parents on the armrest, or, you know, on the side on that street, and they didn't realize the baby went outside, and the mother goes out, and she has to scrape her daughter off of the ground, some kind of law, I mean, the loss of humanity, right. And then I noticed, you know, also, you have all these news stories coming out in the last year, you know, the woman that was sitting in the hospital in Brooklyn, in the waiting room, you know, for the for the in the emergency room, and then for over 24 hours, and Okay, so the sister, Nancy diagnosi, both often determines who's laying on the ground, and they show video surveillance and people just

00:02:32--> 00:02:39

coming in and looking at her, she's dead, no one does anything to help her for hours, right? The loss of humanity. And this is essentially what

00:02:40--> 00:02:46

was mentioned as one of the ends as one of the signs of the end of time. And this is something that's very significant. And he's

00:02:47--> 00:02:54

talking about that when hearts become so hard. And maybe when, you know, I learned from clinical

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

moments.

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

What a lot of talking about

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

these, these huge tribes and events, you know,

00:03:07--> 00:03:14

these huge bodies used to build these huge pillars, and we're, you know, this great construction of loss of habitat and when it

00:03:15--> 00:03:27

comes to them, reminds them this is the mercy robot pony. This is Laci used to be thanking him for the strength you should be thanking him for this advancement. But it's definitely this await of office along

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

with natural disaster, right

00:03:34--> 00:03:43

wing and power just coming in and taking them until they were like dried up, you know, trees decompose left on the ground to dry that

00:03:45--> 00:03:52

same thing that more than half of the smartest. And they were advanced and that they could literally you know, gentlemen

00:03:53--> 00:04:30

just like you say Jamie just like a pocket inherited paintings, they can make flawless you know, caves, flawless sculptures inside of them or not sculptures, they can sculpt their caves inside, you know, inside of these huge stones inside of these boulders, fantasy architecture, right and allow us to kind of try to destroy them to destroy a lot of the blessings who move around, you know, combined all those things is one man and he was a powerful nation in and of themselves. But everyone was also smart. Right? Obviously not when it came to deed, but he was considered to be a smart person. He could torture human beings without being held accountable.

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

The results of all this advanced American Crime

00:04:38--> 00:04:53

that more corruption came, right, which is the irony of this whole despite the buildings advancing despite the strength despite the power of the nations, the one thing that I continued to became was morality and as a result of that, so

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

you have more burgers and more rain, you have more fat, you've had all of this previously.

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

Even though they're becoming more and more aggressive, these things were destroying them from the inside. And essentially what people the mindset of the people have is that every man for himself, and this is what we've come to the state, every man for himself. Everyone wants his own business. What connection Do I have with the people of liberty? Right? I didn't care about them. If I was alive for all 42 years, I didn't care about them for 42 years. But I found that exciting, but lucky got killed. So I went and tried to find all the news reports and see the videos and see how exactly he was killed. Because it's exciting to who's died in the care of the rest of the time. I didn't

00:05:33--> 00:05:41

care about the people of Syria the rest of the time, I didn't care about anything terrible, awful asleep until something exciting happened. That was that was newsworthy for me.

00:05:42--> 00:06:11

This is something for me to watch to keep up with. But essentially people's mind around business, what do I care about Somalia, care about all these people dying of famine and hunger, Africa, all these other problems? What connection Do I have to the right? So on a global level, we learn to become very desensitized human beings is only getting worse. on a local level. If you know someone is committing a transgression against someone else, and you don't come to that person's day, then you are you are just as guilty as the one who was

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

right.

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

This is the other angle that I want to look at

00:06:20--> 00:06:26

amongst you, and He will actually let him change his head. And if you can't deal with his head,

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

or speak out against can speak out against it, and he should hate it in his heart that is the weakest.

00:06:34--> 00:06:40

That's the weakest form of email. When you're when you're you can't you don't say anything, but you hate it.

00:06:41--> 00:06:47

Obviously, one form of one count one form of evil is injustice. What else?

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

What else is eating? What else is part of an economy?

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

Think about what else is evil?

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

Sin, right.

00:07:02--> 00:07:15

And he said in this parliament, you know, witnessing a sin, being a witness to a sin being committed openly and not knowing anything about that also falls into this Hanif, that is also a scope.

00:07:16--> 00:07:21

Right? I see someone doing something, and I don't say anything about

00:07:22--> 00:07:23

it, as long as

00:07:24--> 00:07:56

committed as a sin, guilty person meeting last time, I don't have anything to do with it. You know what, I don't have to say anything. You know, on top of that, I can even hang out with others. I can even be with that person all the time while he's getting us in. But I don't have to say anything about it. I don't have to do anything about it. Right. And, as you were saying, on the new site, that we're just as guilty as that person, because you didn't stop him. He didn't get in the way. And in fact, if you look at some of that, I need to think about it all the time, all the

00:07:58--> 00:08:23

time. And his tail, there's an incident that took place where there was a group of young men who drink tea, drinking alcohol, and think about one of the people that was with them, or some non Muslim, he was testing a zero status, he was fasting, right? Think about this, the guy is fasting. It was a Thursday, everybody else is drinking, but he didn't say anything. He was fasting. So they dropped

00:08:26--> 00:08:48

the ball. So what about the guy who was fasting, he said he's just as guilty, because the one who witness witnesses to happen to sue the one witnesses fallston, who wants to sit and doesn't do anything a lot of is just as guilty as yourself. And he also, he also has to have, the masters have a lot of setup that no one wants to sit at a table where alcohol is being served.

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

Right?

00:08:51--> 00:09:28

You know, someone was telling me as a leader, like a speaker Johnson, sometimes on the designated driving use column, like my friend is doing but I don't drink doesn't worry about anyone, you can be the designated driver. And you can be at the table with that, or you can be implicitly approving of that action. So by sitting there, even if you yourself are not drinking the bottles, I suppose that he encouraged us into because he's sitting at the table wines being served. So he's indicating to those people he really doesn't have a problem, what they're doing, he's letting it go, right? And then take it a step further. Not only are we sometimes complicit in the approving of things,

00:09:28--> 00:09:46

sometimes you're actually assisting in a way right and that can begin to be very very, very small things but again, the example of alcohol because the Arabs were huge drinkers, huge drinkers. province I said I'm stressed many different aspects of this. Alcohol are so lost my son included because the one who drinks the London stone sumos

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

only youth

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

one important one was for for the one who carries carry to all the way to the one who makes it who tasted grace.

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

You know, the one who provides the grease that will be used to make the alcohol if he knew what it was going to be provided for, obviously, if he knew what was going to happen as a result, that's a scary heavy, because sometimes I myself might not be committed to the action. But somehow I didn't achieve that provided that Sunday atmosphere set the mood for that person to get us in. And I didn't do anything about it, I let him do it. In fact, I might have been a part of it, it could be something as simple as commenting on someone's face to the picture. Right? It also kind of was like, What am I remember, one of the sister sent me an email this week. And she said, What's the ruling

00:10:40--> 00:11:14

on, you know, posting pictures of yourself on Facebook? You know, that kind of stuff? And I was like, No, you can't do it guys. Looking at your picture, all that kind of stuff, yada, yada. She said, Okay, what did you make comments on girls who don't work a job, and I tell them how beautiful they live on Facebook, you're assisting us in your home, you're posting her hat, you're posting crazy, though, you're telling her what she's doing is good. You're implicitly approving of what she's doing. It's a small thing, right? It might fly under the radar, but you're approving of some form of power. And you're definitely not speak out against it. Right? It's one thing to go on to the

00:11:14--> 00:11:28

second private message and say, Look, you know, I saw your Facebook page. And I really don't think you should do this, you know, just a gentle reminder, because I love you because you're my brother, because you're my sister, I really don't think this is appropriate for you. To expose yourself being a little forgiving yourself.

00:11:29--> 00:11:52

You can you can remove these things and stuff like that just for the sake of a lot of new coordinates. You know, exactly, that's one thing. Another thing is just just blocking them from your newsfeed. And I'm just going to pretend this doesn't exist. And the third thing is actually congratulating ourselves. Think about that, congratulating them longer, since you're interested in approving other apps, somehow, you're

00:11:53--> 00:11:57

right, so every single time is sitting around, unfortunately.

00:11:58--> 00:12:19

He said I seek refuge in the last kind of data from the day that the sinner is not proceeding with his sin. But the one who does good as the same thing is gonna do, right we're sitting around in the park, if you put on your seat, he's he's gonna criticize you, you're gonna get attacked here to be called late, you're gonna be called stupid, you're gonna be called all kinds of things. But if he busts his music, I can't say anything, because I don't want to be just

00:12:21--> 00:12:27

one thing we become side, since one is supposed to be more shy than the fact to say

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

that I'm not gonna say anything.

00:12:31--> 00:12:48

You know, this person can publicly, you know, understand, we just do whatever they want. And you won't say anything. In fact, you'll be too embarrassed to indicate with your eyes or with your facial expressions, but you don't like what they're doing. But at the same time, here, too, there's too little green in the corner, whenever you

00:12:49--> 00:12:53

think about that for a moment, who's winning that battle? Who's really winning?

00:12:55--> 00:13:15

You know, that's a very, very, very scary thing. And, you know, always goes back to our company, and I was thinking a lot about what the advice was that I wanted to leave you to come along, I'm going to be gone for a long time. So what advice you know, what I really want to leave with these before the end are always those last two friends, and the last half of the United States and

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

those close friends, you know,

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

they are enemies to each other, they just they're fighting each other

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

on the line, and

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

he said that he commented on this night, and

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

I think a lot of

00:13:37--> 00:14:07

stealing, speaking about the way that a person isn't the greatest friend, the person when he sees his relatives actions and the grading, if they're good, and that person is going to be based on the last time that you can speak to the people that are going to you don't have any communication with them, but they will ask a lot to prolong that person's life. Right, and until they guided me the guidance, you know, if you have a good family member, so I know that a long time, he said that the best friendship is the one that one of the friends leaves this world. And he

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

turns to me, and he leads a loss of having a hotel, he says to a loss.

00:14:16--> 00:14:25

Allah do not allow my friend so and so to die until he's been guided to what I have been guided to. He used to command me to obey you. And

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

he used to lead me to the truth. And the only level of time I said he would be told that if you knew the situation of your friend, you would cry and he would laugh a lot, meaning Why isn't given the situation and when he passes away that those two souls are united, leaving souls are united. And they said the worst friendship is the one whatever our friend dies, and that friend was disobedient to the last time and whenever he dies, he says all of my friends also die until he dies.

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

In the same miserable situation that I was in

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

the same way that I was demonstrating, and whenever he joined us,

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

he actually got his friend in the way of cursing him. He says he, he led me to this.

00:15:17--> 00:15:42

Paraphrasing, it's a long memories. He led me to disobeyed Iran as messengers of allies. He didn't stop me. He declared anything he loved to do. And he was part of it. And whenever he guides, those two friends, they curse each other, and they encourage each other through for all of eternity and hellfire. You did this unit that right into she stopped me wanting to say anything. Why did you do this? Why did you do this? constant fighting, and

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

I was just thinking, I'm gonna done with this.

00:15:48--> 00:15:52

Beautiful, beautiful, I am very terrified. And we always, every time

00:15:53--> 00:15:59

I talk about another aspect of it, because the associated to this and I are based on

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

Yahoo.

00:16:06--> 00:16:15

The transgression would be swallowing, biting on his hands on his face, and saying, I wished I would have taken the top of the messengers a whole lot.

00:16:17--> 00:16:22

And that he's complaining on his bathroom. And he uses the two words that are never used

00:16:25--> 00:16:33

in Shakespearean English, right? To be honest, we don't even talk like that. But basically, he really, he's really obsessed with.

00:16:35--> 00:16:48

How can I let this happen? How could I let this happen? late, and he wrote to me late, you know, how can I allow this to happen? I wish I never took that person as a friend. But here's the part that's really amazing.

00:16:49--> 00:16:52

Why does he say I wish I did not take that person?

00:16:56--> 00:16:56

back?

00:16:58--> 00:17:03

Amazing. I never been formed in this way. And so honestly, I was on blind reading when

00:17:04--> 00:17:09

I was reading through the book. That's amazing. The reason

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

you know, I go back to the storage room was, you know, obviously followed up with a bunch of friends. But what's the reason he

00:17:19--> 00:17:47

got into the journey, he removed me He guided he led me astray from the writer after it came to me. And I'm obviously thinking about how many times that happens in our modern days. Someone is this close to becoming religious, this close to becoming a good, you know, her really good heart listen to, or watch something on YouTube that inspired, he's this, this this close? This friend calls up and says, Hey,

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

what's up? Like, you know, what are you doing?

00:17:51--> 00:17:54

And he goes to that environment and he forgets everything.

00:17:57--> 00:18:25

And it's like, what happened your worst before you came to the house, because another wall or another opportunity for that person to get close to a boss, as an employer know that they can change their mind you're talking to him, he had the opportunity he was this close, he was accepting it he was embracing and you know, even into the story. He actually accepted it's not then and you're going to follow him seriously. This is what I don't want

00:18:28--> 00:18:40

anymore. So he went back on that but he was there right? And a lot of times we see Muslim youth that were there I was there I was close I felt it I felt the numbers I felt the numbers and

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

that my friends that I got a text message that I went on Facebook, then I forgot everything

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

you're going to need you're going to hate that person.

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

And the last time I told us on the other hand

00:18:55--> 00:19:14

often in this group of gentlemen, everyone coming together and meeting around the agenda, you know sitting on their phones and things of that sort and they're asking each other inquired about their lives say what was going on what did you do what did you do online Academy but any one of them says friends if

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

he sees to say that he really couldn't believe

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

we

00:19:23--> 00:19:25

were gonna be revived seriously.

00:19:27--> 00:19:45

Right But he's remembering this person jealous remembering all this stuff when his friend needs to talk to him and say, and you know, you're coming religious stop. You're becoming you're changing. You need to stop this. You're being brainwashed by these. You've been brainwashed. You know you're becoming a sellout. You think you're better than the law barring him, right?

00:19:48--> 00:19:53

That's kind of up. Only one of the listeners have up so he pointed this out

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

to those guys and gentlemen, to see what happens.

00:20:01--> 00:20:11

He went and he looked not for the water because other guys weren't very interested, you can go find your friend, we're gonna hang on gentlemen until you can go see what happened here. He was interested

00:20:15--> 00:20:19

in the song and the lowest point of gender. And he said to him while

00:20:20--> 00:20:21

he kids,

00:20:22--> 00:20:33

by law, you almost got me, I almost listened to you, in almost like a strain, indicated to me, whatever.

00:20:35--> 00:20:47

It wasn't allowed blessing me and save me I would have been where you are, I would have been just like you kind of like he doesn't care about this person. You almost got me You almost any fault, but it didn't work

00:20:48--> 00:21:27

out what's what's the the unifying traits between the person who gives implicit approval to sin. And the guy who ultimately ended up going to the JD after minor case was led astray, he had a passive and weak personality wasn't strong enough, you have to know how to hold your own customers, you've got to be able to have a strong personality, that you change your environment, your environment doesn't change you that if you're around people that are lower than you, and you make them better. And if you're around people that are higher than they will not even try to reach that level. But you have to be able to hold your own essence. And you have to have a strong personality. Otherwise, you

00:21:27--> 00:22:02

can be one or two, it can be a sign of the devil, someone who was witnessing pasta, or it could be someone who fell into it, because although he felt like he was getting the most out of it, somebody called them up somebody that led him to backstab. And by the way, this continues for your entire life. People think peer pressure's High School, kids, you know, sitting around, you know, all this people when a peer pressure to a very simplistic, simplistic definition, it's not that peer pressure continues 50 6070 years old.

00:22:04--> 00:22:30

You're still trying, if you're a weak personality, you're still trying to go with the flow, you're still trying to do what everybody else is doing. Peer pressure continues, it just takes on a more sophisticated form. But it continues your entire life continues. Unless you have a strong enough personality where you hold your role, to the point where you're not you're not side of your good deeds, you're not side of me, that would lose this guy. You're not arrogant, but you're not shy. And there's a fine line between those two.

00:22:31--> 00:23:04

So you're not telling people you're not thinking that you're better than them. But at the same time, you're not going to tolerate their their stuff, you know, and you're not going to allow it to happen on your watch. Not in front of me, you can go simple, however much you want outside, whatever you want to do, in front of me, I'm not going to tolerate, you're not going to do it in my car, you're not going to do it around me, you're not going to do well, in an hour or two session, you're going to go do it somewhere else not not in my house, not on my watch, it's not going to happen. Think about what when you have that personality, that is something that was consistent with all of the

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

companions of the masters.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

They saw something, they changed it, they changed it. And if you truly love that person,

00:23:14--> 00:23:17

beautiful honey, which really shows us the tasks.

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

And joining the intermittent economy gives us this this analogy of a ship.

00:23:26--> 00:23:29

You got some people on the top deck, some people on the bottom that

00:23:30--> 00:23:36

the people on the bottom that don't want to disturb the people on the top deck and ask them for water. So what do they do?

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

They put a hole in the bottom of the ship and start getting water from the ocean.

00:23:43--> 00:24:15

Think about that. And the people at the top don't bother to come get in the water. So what happens to the ship, the entire ship sinks. What a beautiful analogy. You've got, you've got gotta want to save your brothers, you've got to wants to help. But whenever they turn away, then that is one that you hate on the inside. And the law says that Hey, get on the inside needs you some of those people, you don't want to change I tried to do, I'm going to do my thing and I'm going to hate it on the inside you can do your thing.

00:24:16--> 00:24:38

But I'm going to try to get you water. I'm going to try to get water to another one. Unless you you might die of something else you might die or be having some weird seasickness, but you're not going to drill a hole and I'm going to give you water you're not going to die. There's nothing about them. So trying to save people but not at the expense of your own ego. We asked last time to protect us and so I'm going to

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

guilty because the one who witness witnesses to happen to zoom to one witnesses Foster, who wants to sit it doesn't do anything about is just as guilty as the doer herself. And he also he also has to have a Master's of a lot of money in the center that no one wants to sit at a table where alcohol is being served

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

right

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

For a lady, you know, someone was telling me as a leader, like a speaker, Jocelyn sometimes on the designated driving, he was probably like my friend is doing but I don't drink doesn't worry about making money, you can be the designated driver. And you can be at the table with that, or you can be implicitly approving of that action. So by sitting there, even if you yourself are not drinking the problems, I suppose that he incurs two sentences, because he's sitting on the team all lines concert, so he's indicating to those people, he really doesn't have a problem with what they're doing. He's letting it go. Right? And then take it a step further. Not only are we sometimes

00:25:36--> 00:25:56

complicit in the grouping of things, sometimes you're actually assisting in a way, right? And they can begin to be very, very, very small things. But again, the example of alcohol because the Arabs were huge drinkers, huge drinkers. For the province, I said, I'm stressed many different aspects of this alcohol are so lost, myself included, because the one who drinks to love themselves who else

00:25:57--> 00:25:57

only youth?

00:26:01--> 00:26:42

Or is it the one who was born for the one who carries and the one that's carrying all the way to the one who makes it who takes the grace, you know, the one who provides to the race, that will be used to make the alcohol, if he knew what it was going to be provided for, obviously, if he knew what was going to happen as a result, that's a scary heavy, because sometimes I myself might not be committed to the action. But somehow I didn't achieve that provided the atmosphere set the mood for that person to get us in, and I didn't do anything about it. I let him do it. In fact, I might have been a part of it, it could be something as simple as commenting on someone's Facebook picture. Right?

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

You know,

00:26:44--> 00:27:06

what I remember? One of the sisters, I mean, actually email this week. And she said, What's the ruling on, you know, posting pictures of yourself on Facebook? You know, that kind of stuff? And I was like, No, you can't do it, guys are gonna be looking at your pictures, all that kind of stuff, yada, yada. She said, Okay, what is it? my comments on girls, and don't worry, john, and I tell them how beautiful they look on Facebook, you're assisting in

00:27:07--> 00:27:38

your palm, you're boosting her and you're boosting great, you know, you're telling her what she's doing is good. You're implicitly approving of what she's doing. It's a small thing, right? It might fly under the radar, but you're removing of some form of power. And you're definitely not seek out against it. Right? It's one thing to go into the sun, the private message and say, Look, you know, I saw your Facebook page. And I really don't think you should do this, you know, just a gentle reminder, because I love you, because you're my brother, because you're my sister, I really don't think this is appropriate for you to expose yourself being a little forgiving, and maybe looking

00:27:38--> 00:28:06

over this, you can you can remove these things and stuff like that just for the sake of the record itself. Exactly. That's one thing. Another thing is the state is blocking the newsfeed. And I'm just gonna pretend this doesn't exist. And the third thing is actually congratulating them on their sentence. Think about that, congratulating them, obviously, you're implicitly approving of their actions, somehow you're listening. Right? So every single time we're sitting around, unfortunately,

00:28:08--> 00:28:29

he said, I seek refuge in the last kind of data from the day that the sinner is not proceeding with his sin. But the one who does good as the Satan is going to do, right, we're sitting around in a car, if you put on your seat, he's gonna criticize you, you're gonna get attacked during the call late, you're gonna be called stupid, you're gonna be called all kinds of things. But if he busts his musical, I can't say anything, because I don't want to

00:28:32--> 00:28:37

become psychotic. Since one is the narratological, to be more shy to say

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

that I'm not going to say anything.

00:28:41--> 00:28:58

You know, this person can publicly, you know, unseemly just do whatever they want. And you won't say anything. In fact, you'll be too embarrassed to indicate with your eyes, or with your facial expressions that you don't like what they're doing. But at the same time here, there's no gray in the corner, whatever you

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

think about that for a moment, who's winning that battle? Who's really winning that battle? You know, that's a very, very, very scary thing. And, you know, it always goes back to our company, and I was thinking a lot about what the advice was that I wanted to leave, you know, I'm going to be gone for a long time. So what advice you know what I really want to leave with these before I leave, and always those have asked friends, and one of the last half of the United States in the court of law, those close friends, you know, this year

00:29:32--> 00:29:35

they are enemies to each other, they just they're fighting each other

00:29:37--> 00:29:37

on the line, and

00:29:39--> 00:29:44

he said that he commented on this night and this one, I think a lot of

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

them speaking about the way that a person is integrated, right the person when he sees his relatives actions and the gradient, if they're good, and that person is going to be based on so last time. You can speak to the people that are gonna you don't have any

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

indication with them, but they would ask a lot to, to prolong that person's life. Right. And until they guide me the guidance, you know if you have a good family member, so I know that a long time, he said that the best friendship is the one that when one of the friends leaves this world, and he is a sign that he is a righteous person, and he needs a loss.

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

He says to a loss,

00:30:25--> 00:30:35

a lot, do not allow my friend so and so to die until he's been guided to what I have been guided to. He used to command me to obey

00:30:37--> 00:30:59

Him, He used to lead me to the truth. And they had a lot of times that he would be told that if you knew the situation of your friend, you would cry a little he would laugh a lot, maybe why isn't the situation and when he passes away that those two souls are united, leaving souls are uniting. And these are the words friendship is the friend.

00:31:00--> 00:31:12

And that friend was our disobedience of the last time. And whenever he dies, he says all of my friends also die until he dies in the same miserable situation that I was in

00:31:15--> 00:31:18

the same way that I was demonstrating. And whatever he joins.

00:31:19--> 00:31:52

You know, he actually gets to struggle with cursing him. He says he, he led me to this ovelar. I'm paraphrasing. It's a long series, he led me to this omega on his messengers of a lot. He didn't stop me. He didn't let anything he let me do what he wanted to do. And he was part of it. And whenever he got those two friends, they curse each other. And they encouraged each other for all of eternity in hellfire. You did this, you did that. Right. And as you stopped me wanting to say anything, why did you do this? Why did you do this? constant fighting and

00:31:54--> 00:31:55

I was just thinking,

00:31:58--> 00:32:09

beautiful, beautiful. I am very terrified. And we always, every time I answer these, I have another aspect of it because the proceeds of this die are based on the last

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

one

00:32:11--> 00:32:12

who

00:32:15--> 00:32:25

won the transgressor would be swallowing biting on his hands on his fist, and saying, I wish I would have taken the top of the messengers a whole lot of money.

00:32:26--> 00:32:31

And nothing is complaining off his back. And he uses the two words that are never used

00:32:35--> 00:32:43

in Shakespearean English, right? Well, to be honest, we don't even talk like that. But basically, he really he's really obsessed with

00:32:44--> 00:32:48

how can I let this happen? How could I let this happen?

00:32:49--> 00:32:58

To me, and how can I allow this to happen? I wish I never took that person as a friend. But here's the part that's really amazing.

00:32:59--> 00:33:02

Why does he say I wish I did not take that person?

00:33:06--> 00:33:06

back?

00:33:08--> 00:33:13

Amazing. I never thought of it this way. And so honestly, I was on plane reading when

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

I was reading.

00:33:16--> 00:33:23

Amazing. The reason I always you know I go back to the story for was, you know, obviously following with

00:33:24--> 00:33:26

ignoring your friends. But what's the reasoning?

00:33:29--> 00:33:53

behind that is Johnny, he removed me He guided he led me astray from the diviner after it came to me. And I'm actually thinking about how many times that happens in our modern days. Someone is this close to becoming religious, this close to becoming a good, you know, her really good heart, listen to everything, or watch something on YouTube that inspired, he's this

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

close. Then his friend calls up and says, Hey,

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

what's up, like, what are you doing?

00:34:01--> 00:34:04

And he goes to that environment and he forgets everything.

00:34:06--> 00:34:16

And it's like what happened? You're worse than before you came to the house, because another wall or another opportunity for that person to get close to a boss comes on as an employee. Now. The

00:34:17--> 00:34:27

the reminder to him, he had the opportunity. He was this close. He was accepting it. He was embracing the story. He actually accepted

00:34:29--> 00:34:35

them, and you're going to follow him. Seriously. This is what you don't want to

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

write.

00:34:39--> 00:34:49

So he went back on that but he was there, right? And a lot of times we see Muslim youth that were there. I was there. I was close. I felt it. I felt the numbers. I found the numbers

00:34:52--> 00:34:57

that I got a text message on Facebook. Then I forgot everything

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

you're going to be you're going to hate

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

First

00:35:01--> 00:35:04

and Last time I told us on the other hand in a

00:35:06--> 00:35:17

group of gentlemen everyone coming together meeting around the gentleman you know sitting on their phones and things of that sort and they're asking each other inquired about their lives and what was going on what did you do? What did you do?

00:35:20--> 00:35:24

Academy but any one of them says hey I used to have this friend or foe

00:35:25--> 00:35:28

etc is to say to me are you really gonna believe this stuff?

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

Like when we die we become dirt we're gonna be revived seriously

00:35:37--> 00:35:55

right he's remembering this person jealous remembering all this stuff when his friend needs to talk to him and say and you know you're becoming religious top you're becoming you're changing you need to stop this you're being brainwashed by these you're getting brainwashed. You know you're becoming a sellout you think you're better than the law right?

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

Only wonderful person is upset he pointed this out

00:36:04--> 00:36:05

to those guys and gentlemen, it's

00:36:13--> 00:36:19

not for the water because other guys were very interested you can go find your friend. We're gonna hang on gentlemen until you can go see what happened.

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

He was interested.

00:36:24--> 00:36:30

And he saw him in the lowest point of gender. And he said to him while tell him long he

00:36:32--> 00:36:43

by law you almost got me and almost listened to you. You almost like a strain indicator to me whenever there

00:36:44--> 00:36:50

was a blessing in safety I would have been where you are. I would have been just like you

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

You almost got me You almost any fault. But it didn't work

00:36:57--> 00:37:06

out what's what's the unifying trades between the person who gives implicit approval to sin. And the guy who Alemany

00:37:07--> 00:37:48

minor case was led astray, he had a passive and weak personality wasn't strong enough, you have to know how to hold your own customers, you've got to be able to have a strong enough personality that you change your environment, your environment doesn't change you that if you're around people that are lower than you and you make them better. And if you're around people that are higher than you, when you try to reach that level, you have to be able to hold your own hands and you have to have a strong personality. Otherwise, you can be one or two either at silent level. Someone was witnessing. Halston, or you can be someone who fell into it, because although he was close to what he felt like

00:37:48--> 00:38:02

he was getting the most out of it, somebody called them up somebody that led him to backstab. And by the way, this continues for your entire life. People think peer pressure is you know, high school, kids, you know, sitting around with, you know,

00:38:04--> 00:38:12

people when in peer pressure to a very simplistic, simplistic definition, it's not that peer pressure continues, it's 50 6070 years old.

00:38:14--> 00:38:39

You're still trying, if you're a weak personality, you're still trying to go with the flow, you're still trying to do what everybody else is doing. Peer pressure continues, it just takes on a more sophisticated form, but it continues, your entire life continues. Unless you have a strong enough personality where you hold your role, to the point where you're not you're not outside of your good deeds, you're outside of being the religious guy, you're not arrogant, but you're not shy. And there's a fine line between those two.

00:38:41--> 00:38:53

People, you're not thinking that you're better than them. But at the same time, you're not going to tolerate their their stuff, you know, and you're not going to allow it to happen on your watch. Not in front of me. You can go sit

00:38:54--> 00:39:15

outside, whatever you want to do not in front of me and I'm not going to tolerate, you're not going to do it in my car, you're not going to do it around me, you're not going to do well in our school session, you're going to go do it somewhere else not not in my house, not on my watch, it's not going to happen. Think about when you have that personality, that is something that was consistent with all the companions of the masters.

00:39:16--> 00:39:22

They saw something, they changed it, they changed it. And if you truly love that person,

00:39:24--> 00:39:27

beautiful, which really shows us the task of that.

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

And joining

00:39:32--> 00:39:35

us this this analogy of a ship.

00:39:36--> 00:39:38

You got some people on the top deck some people on the bottom that

00:39:40--> 00:39:45

the people on the bottom that don't want to disturb the people on the top deck and ask them for water. So what do they do?

00:39:47--> 00:39:51

They put a hole in the bottom of the ship and start getting water from the ocean.

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

Think about that. And the people at the top don't bother to come get in the water. So what happens to the ship

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

The entire ship sinks are a beautiful analogy. You've got you don't want to say to your brothers, you've gone too long.

00:40:09--> 00:40:14

But whenever they turn away, then that is one that you hated on the inside.

00:40:15--> 00:40:23

But hated on the inside means you shun those of you don't want to change I tried to do. I'm going to do my thing and I'm going to hate it on

00:40:25--> 00:40:45

this panel, but I'm going to try and get you water. I'm going to try to get water and I'm not going to let you you might die or something else you might die are we having some weird seasickness but you're not going to drill a hole in my stick? I'm gonna get in the water. They're not gonna die at this time. I think about them. So trying to save people but not at the expense of you. We asked last

00:40:46--> 00:40:47

month
