00:00:19--> 00:01:04

De La Mirada alameen what are the one in a lot I mean when are people in LA so do send them with avocado, avocado silica Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while only he was talking to send them to semen cathedra the brothers and sisters I want to start off with a reflection on a very powerful AI and, and and i know it departs a little bit from the topic but I hope that you'll be able to connect the dots as we go along. where Allah subhana wa tada talks about one of the most extraordinary young men that has ever walked the face of the earth. In fact, this Dean that we follow is his Dean. This way that we follow is his path and a loss of Hannah hoods atta tells the

00:01:04--> 00:01:49

messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to follow his way to bear who. And that is Ibrahim it has set up the one who also lost a lot of them saw in the highest heaven whenever he traveled on the night of an assault with Matt Raj. And the one whom Allah Subhana Allah says who watched the vacuum was a mock and when was the mean that he chose you and named you Muslim? Some of the scholars said that Ibrahim alayhis salam was the one who actually did the naming of calling us Muslims and some subtle loss of hundreds out of them. But surely, you know a man that accomplished amazing things. Who till today in every major rochen of this Deen we commemorate his sacrifice we commemorate his effort in

00:01:49--> 00:02:34

the Salah. When we do a slot will he mi la Muslim, IANA Mohammed Ali Mohammed castle later I brought him on to it but all he had is about following the pillars or following the the acts the monastic the Ibrahim alayhis salaam was taught by Allah Subhana hoods on and that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reinforced and in particular the idea that I want to look at that I want you to reflect upon for a moment Allah subhanaw taala says about Ibrahim alayhis salaam in Ibrahim I can Alma Ibrahim alayhis salam was the oma by himself. He was an entire nation. He was a oma and a lot you know when you read the tough seat of this is very interesting because the scholars struggled

00:02:34--> 00:03:23

with this concept first and foremost the linguistic meaning of the word oma. And if we come to the if we come to the conclusion that Omar represents a community represents a nation, then what does it mean in regard to civil Hema it is set up. So some of the scholars they said that what it means is that Ibrahim alayhis salam was a oma Cana oma because all of the arguments that Ibrahim and Islam put forth to his people throughout his entire youth until he got married. So a good portion of his life all of the the debating that Evelyn Imani is Salaam did even kathira calls him of Sahil ambia the most eloquent of the prophets. Everything that he put forward, we read his arguments in the end

00:03:23--> 00:03:58

and you know what Allah Subhana Allah tells us that by the time of Rahim it is that I was finished with his people with all of those arguments. And his father instigated the murder of Ibrahim alayhis salam and he was thrown into the fire is stripped naked in front of the people humiliated and then he left that fire and he left his people and he said, Rob be heavily masala hain Oh Allah grant me from the righteous that not a single person from his people believed in him except for his wife and his cousin Luca alayhis. Salaam, who was in another locality anyway.

00:03:59--> 00:04:50

Can you imagine that? The arguments that he put forth to his people were extraordinary arguments. And he strove like no other human being could strive. But with all of that, nobody believed in him. So in that regard, for a while if he might, Islam really did represent the oma. But it means something much more powerful than that, as the majority of them will festivity and have pointed out, which I find phenomenal, that they say that what Ibrahim alayhis salaam was able to accomplish the good that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam put forth, an entire nation could not put forth and that's why Allah subhanaw taala called him and oma. Everything about him was invested towards the dour was invested

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

towards spreading this message. emotionally. He invested himself into this message he committed himself to the cause. You know how hurtful it was for him to

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

hear those words from his father, he loved his father if he didn't love his father, he would have been making God for him the entire time until Allah subhanaw taala forbade him from doing so loved his father and to have your father reject you that way to have your people reject you that way. He emotionally invested himself so much into this there our physically invested himself to the point that again, he was going to be killed had a loss of Hannah who went to Ireland not not saved him and made the fire battle done was Salama cool and peaceful upon him. And his him and we all know I mean, any, you know, some kind of law.

00:05:38--> 00:06:17

That statement sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt. We all know that's a big lie. Emotional hurts, emotional abuse is much more severe than physical abuse. Right? And that's why you know, when we were growing up, many of you might have this the same, you know, the same understanding that you know what, growing up, if you did something bad, you really wanted your parents to just hit you just just get it over with. But the worst moments were when your dad would put you in the corner your mom and say, I'm disappointed in you. You really let me down. I can't you know, I don't even know what to make out of this. It's like dad could you just smacked me across the

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

face and says get it over with you know, there's the belt.

00:06:21--> 00:06:39

This is much more painful than that. Right? Because that's emotion that emotionally hurts you. You know that really it beats you down on the inside and able to hurt my knees and I'm was beaten down inside out for this cause and you know what's amazing? When he leaves how long to Egypt? He continues the data.

00:06:41--> 00:07:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the person who that the the king the oppressive king who says to Ibrahim alayhis salaam. when Abraham is Nam says lobby Allah de Will you meet my lord is the one one number who gives life and gives death and then rude, says No, he won't meet I give life and I give death. How do I give life and I give death? Nimrod said Well, here's a guy that was going to be killed. And I'm going to let them go and here's a guy that's innocent. I'm going to kill him. See I give life and I give death to

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

Karla Ibrahim for in the La Jolla team is shamcey man and

00:07:18--> 00:07:24

he said okay, Allah brings the sun from the east bring it from the West bolita la de Kapha.

00:07:25--> 00:08:13

right the the disbeliever was was baffled. He didn't know what to say. So Ibrahim is Lam continued his data, from how long to muscle to Iraq. everywhere he went, he was completely entirely invested in the data to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's why Allah subhana wa tada calls him by himself a man, an entire nation. And from Ibrahim alayhis salam, all of the Oman would come out just by himself. And one of the proofs of that is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam referred to one of his Sahaba in the same way, and that's the hobby was on blognomic through the law, the law to Allah and the Prophet. So I said, I'm said in the law of intimacy rude oma, I'm loving them as rude

00:08:13--> 00:08:23

by himself is an oma. Now let's study of the love and misuse or the love I know to understand that for a minute of the love numero uno, the allowance It

00:08:24--> 00:08:25

was a young man.

00:08:27--> 00:09:08

In the time of when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam received the message, received the message. He has no lineage he doesn't, you know, some kind of love no one to take care of him, no tribe. He's one of the low people of society. So Young Shepherd, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walked by with a bucket of the law, I know one day, and he was in charge of some sheep and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Can we have something to drink and we have some milk to drink? And I've loved them as food said no, because I am a holiday time and I was trusted with this flock. I can't give you anything. So the province lies on them said it Tina be shot Lana benefi bring us a

00:09:08--> 00:09:20

sheep, then a goat that has nothing, no milk that doesn't produce milk. And I'm delighted to miss Ruth ruler of the Allahu taala. And who saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say Bismillah put his hands on the others and the mill came out,

00:09:21--> 00:09:27

gave a drink to Apple Beckett drank from it gave a drink to have the love and the mist a little the love of time.

00:09:28--> 00:09:49

And the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam praised the traits, the attribute of our beloved Mr. Truth or the law I know which was his trustworthiness. This same Eben myschool of the Alon goes and accepts Islam, one of the first to accept Islam goes out from the very start. He's the first person to recite for an publicly

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

despite having no protection, no one to take care of him. He doesn't care. He believes so wholeheartedly in this message that he goes out

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

He starts reciting sorta Walkman

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

and the people are listening to and they're saying what is that?

00:10:06--> 00:10:18

And then they realize this is from the poetry of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as they called it, and they jumped on him and they beat him unconscious broke his collarbones

00:10:19--> 00:10:34

and when they've been misused or the law and who woke up from that beating that throbbing they said to have been misused or the allot of time Why did you do that? You know, the prophet sighs I'm didn't tell you to go recite publicly. We're not yet in that stage of public dialogue. Why did you do that?

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

And he said, Well,

00:10:37--> 00:10:45

I want to do the same thing today. I want to go back and make them listen to the Quran and they can beat me up again. I don't care.

00:10:46--> 00:11:15

He didn't care. And he is the one who won the public that was started officially with the Islam of amadablam ha Baba. They allowed Thailand who he is the one that called the Islam of Omar victory as an honor for the deen. Why? Because now he could go out and give Dawa freely without having to worry about any of that stuff that's been ruled out on the outside. I know him and Massoud is the same one who would climb on the chest of Abuja Hill in Bader

00:11:17--> 00:11:23

and Abu Jihad would look at him and would say locker locker takita Murata consort of an era where

00:11:24--> 00:11:36

you have climbed the difficult mountain Oh separative sheep. Who do you think you are? Do you know who I am? Look how arrogant vaginas. He's a huge human being. And I'm loving this rule or the law and who stands on top of him.

00:11:37--> 00:11:44

And he says to me, Mr. Leeman Allah By the way, who's winning the battle? He's about to die who's winning the battle?

00:11:45--> 00:12:02

And I've loved him as a result of the law and who tells them aloha lava, Lila rasulillah? Yeah, doula victories for Allah and His Messenger Salalah Haris. No any enemy of Allah. And Eben Masood are the Allahu anhu would take the life of the fit or own of this oma.

00:12:04--> 00:12:35

Now, even though the allowance add on who what makes him so amazing is that Elon Musk was a dwarf physically, physically speaking, he was he had a deformity, he was short. And some of the Sahaba at one point even made fun of him, as the incident is narrated, that I was allowing them to screw with what they allow, and who was climbing the rock tree to get the sea walk. And a wind blew him into that tree, and his legs were exposed and the Sahaba laughed at him

00:12:36--> 00:12:52

and also lost license and said, What are you laughing at? They said the out of civil law Look at his, you know, his legs are small. I'm loving this law, the Allah who was a short human being, as you know, it's it's it's said that the the sitting person would be at eye level with him when he was standing. He was a short human being.

00:12:54--> 00:13:03

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said lahoma Hello filmyzilla neoman piano team and those two legs that you're laughing on,

00:13:04--> 00:13:11

are more heavy on the scales of a loss of Hannah woods and on the Day of Judgment than the mountain of

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

why the man gave everything for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was an oma by himself. He's a nation he taught this a mother or an, you know, they allowed to an animal. When Iraq was giving her a hard time. The animal said, Look, I'm gonna send you a guy that if you if you give him a hard time, that means for sure that you are at fault, because there is no way that he's going to do anything wrong. He sent them the love numbers through though the lawn and he said it pains me to send him to you.

00:13:47--> 00:14:00

But he sent him to Iraq because he said, you know, maybe maybe that will fix the situation over there. And when Omar of the Allahu anhu the next time he saw a group of people coming from from Iraq,

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

and he started to ask them questions, everything that they answered with was pulled on.

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

Where are you going to elevated it in?

00:14:10--> 00:14:22

The Kava, where are you coming from? fujinami dark valley is asking them questions. They're answering with boron, and he says if ecomondo love to mess around with you have the loving Massoud amongst you, don't you? Yeah,

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

he taught the oma the Quran. his entire life was invested towards the dean. And so what rules or the allow us to accomplish is an entire nation doesn't accomplish. And that's why it also loss isonem says about me, Becca said do what they allow. I know the greatest human being who ever walked the face of the earth who was not a prophet. And also la sala la whining who SLM says, no wooziness a man who Avi Becker if you took the man of herbal vacuum and put it on a scale and put the rest of the oma, all of the man all of the faith

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

You imagine all of the mums and if man's and all this will have all the tablets in the hassanal bursaries, the Mubarak's the Maliki of new dinars the Ibn taymiyyah is that bizarre is that the have you put all of those people on one side and you put it on the other side? Raja tema, Avi Baca Abu Bakr is a man was heavier than all of their email. All of us sitting here today. One man out does billions in his eemaan Why? Because everything about Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was not Illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. He invested himself physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, he gave it his all blood, sweat and tears. It was all for the oma. It was all for nylon, Allah Muhammad Rasul

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

Allah.

00:15:51--> 00:16:29

The point that I'm trying to make dear brothers and sisters, is that Allah subhanho to Allah has given us certain capabilities and Allah subhana wa, tada has certain expectations of us and the expectations that Allah has of us is different than the expectations that people have set for us. Many of you, your parents would be satisfied if you just, you know, prayed on time, were nice to them fasted attended high lockers here and there, they'd be happy. They said, hamdulillah You know, I'm good. You became the trophy half of kid and didn't completely, you know, humiliate them. 100 not great. You know, my kids doing all right. Or, you know, what, maybe a little bit more, you know, get

00:16:29--> 00:17:03

involved with y m or mass youth or whatever, whatever it may be, and, and really put your heart into it. That's good enough. Okay. And hamdulillah good. You know, that's, that's all, that's all a parent could ask for. But Allah has other expectations for you. Look, the father of Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam didn't want Ibrahim alayhis salam to be a prophet. He didn't have expectations for him. But Allah had expectations of him. I loved him as early, although I know had no parents to set expectations for him. But Allah subhanho wa Taala had expectations for him. I can't see that. So it's five minutes. Okay.

00:17:05--> 00:17:43

You know, the point is, is that Allah subhanaw taala sets expectations for you. And I always mentioned this example, because I find it so significant. You look at what some individuals have been able to accomplish. And you know what, you go to almost any community in the United States today. And if that community is awesome, if you study it enough, you can trace it down to one person, you can track down one or two or three individuals who are doing everything, right. And that's a problem because they might get burned out, most likely more likely than not, they'll eventually get burned out. But it's usually on the back of one person, you go to some communities

00:17:43--> 00:18:22

you see Mashallah, you know, in terms of youth activities, social activities, for an Hadeeth, whatever it may be interfaith social work, social justice, like that community is doing an awesome job. And then you find out, it's just one, they just have an incredible Imam or they have an incredible director, or they have an incredible, you know, brother or sister that's behind the scenes organizing all of this stuff. It almost always happens when you go and you study communities. Now, the reason why those have accomplished so much is because they were all awesome, right? They all had that drive, they had that motivation. But somehow a lot in our day and age, it's just the

00:18:22--> 00:18:45

fact that it's very few. You know, there is many from the earlier generations, offering just a few from the from the later generations that take on that task that really put their hearts and dedicate themselves to this message. And I always use the example of Shama de la him a whole lot to honor what that man accomplished by himself.

00:18:46--> 00:19:25

Tire oma would not accomplish in our day and age, in fact, what he accomplished with his eyes when he was paralyzed, and he was just writing letters with the last few years of his life with his eyes, debating with people sending letters to different people debating with his Christian nurses, and one of his Christian nurses accepting Islam because he used his eyes to give her our we don't even do that with our full capability with our entire bodies. Right? But when Allah Subhana, WA, tada, puts that inspiration inside of you, you dedicate yourself. And so the question is with these last few minutes, I really didn't. That was supposed to just be the introduction to the talk.

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

But the question is that I have for you.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

And then I'll let you think about it.

00:19:33--> 00:19:39

How much of your free time goes towards that either the law Mohammed law, civil law,

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

when you're sitting alone, how many of your thoughts are occupied by the situation of the oma and you're standing in front of a loss of Hannah hautala serious things important things? When you are sad, what is it that usually gets you sad and gets you down? Right, is it that's your football team?

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

lost the game? Is it that your favorite celebrity or favorite athlete broke up with their girlfriend or broke up with their boyfriend? Or, you know, what is it that gets you down? Is it that you get a flat tire? You dropped your phone and you broke your phone? And you know, you don't have internet for today? What is it that gets you down? That actually burdens you? That actually weighs heavy on your heart and on your thoughts? What is it that keeps you up at night when you're not able to sleep? Is it that somebody threw a really nasty comment at you on Facebook? Do you realize how shallow of a generation we are sometimes, right? What keeps you up at night seriously, that somebody

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

made a comment that you didn't like somebody said something to you? And I'm going to show them

00:20:46--> 00:21:02

what meaningful things keep us up at night and occupy our thoughts. And when I get tired and I consume my body and I consume my health and my time the greatest two blessings that are neglected as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:21:03--> 00:21:29

you know, what is it being used for when I'm tired physically, emotionally exhausted? What is it being used for? And if it's for something other than the cause that's going to determine your fate. And whether or not you will be in paradise or Hellfire whenever you have to Billa then there's a big problem there because that makes you a neglectful person and it makes me a neglectful person. It makes us a people of heedlessness and hafla.

00:21:30--> 00:22:08

And so, I asked that question. I asked a lot of Canada to forgive me for the lengthy introduction. And if this talk wasn't more practical, but I hope throughout the conference, inshallah Tada. There will be more practicality in the talks. And this was hopefully just an introduction to the conference in the Ibrahima can oma Ibrahim alayhis salam was an oma We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us the most glorious Omar to make us people who live up to the job description of a little bit. Maru for Nana Mancha. enjoining good and forbidding evil and we ask Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings Allah I mean, Zack malachite on Apollo Kalia was suffering Stouffer lalibela

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

como Solomonic castle

00:22:13--> 00:22:53

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walked by with a bucket of the lava I know one day and he was in charge of some CIF and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Can we have something to drink? Can we have some milk to drink? And I've loved them as food said no, because I am a holiday time and I was trusted with this flock. I can't give you anything. So the province lies on them said it Tina be shot Lana benefi bring us a sheep then a goat that has nothing, no milk that doesn't produce milk. And I'm delighted to miss the Allahu taala and who saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say Bismillah put his hands on the others and the milk came out,

00:22:54--> 00:22:59

gave a drink to Apple Beckett drank from it gave a drink to have the love and the mist a little the a lot of time.

00:23:00--> 00:23:21

And the Prophet sallallahu audience and I'm praised the traits, the attribute of our beloved Mr. Truth or the law I know which was his trustworthiness, this same Eben myschool of the Alon goes and accepts Islam, one of the first to accept Islam goes out from the very start. He's the first person to recite for an publicly

00:23:23--> 00:23:34

despite having no protection, no one to take care of him. He doesn't care. He believes so wholeheartedly in this message that he goes out and he starts reciting sort of man.

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

And the people are listening to understand what is that?

00:23:39--> 00:23:50

And then they realize this is from the poetry of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as they called it. And they jumped on him, and they beat him unconscious, broke his collarbone.

00:23:52--> 00:24:06

And when they've been misusing the law and who woke up from that beating that throbbing they said to have been missed a lot of time Why did you do that? You know the Prophet sighs I'm didn't tell you to go recite publicly. We're not yet in that stage of public dour. Why did you do that?

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

And he said, Well,

00:24:09--> 00:24:17

I want to do the same thing today. I want to go back and make them listen to the Quran and they can beat me up again. I don't care.

00:24:18--> 00:24:47

He didn't care. And he is the one who won the public that was started officially with the Islam of amadablam capalbo. They allowed Thailand who he is the one that called the Islam of Omar victory is an honor for the dean. Why? Because now he could go out and give data freely without having to worry about any of that stuff. That's not on the outside. I know him and Massoud is the same one who would climb on the chest of Abuja Hill in Bader

00:24:49--> 00:24:56

and I will Abu Jad would look at him and would say locker locker takita Murata consort of an era where

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

you have climbed the difficult mountain

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

Shepherd of sheep, who do you think you are? Do you know who I am? Look how arrogant vaginas. He's a huge human being. And I'm loving this ruler, the law I know stands on top of him.

00:25:10--> 00:25:16

And he says to me, man, I love Allah By the way, who's winning the battle? He's about to die who's winning the battle?

00:25:17--> 00:25:35

And I've loved him as a result of the law I know tells them Allah Allah lilla when he rasulillah Yeah, do Allah, victories for Allah and His Messenger Salalah Haris. No any enemy of Allah. And Eben Masood are the Allah and who would take the life of the fitter own of this oma.

00:25:36--> 00:26:07

Now even though the allowance add on what makes him so amazing is that even Mr. Root was a dwarf physically, physically speaking, he was he had a deformity, he was short. And some of the Sahaba at one point even made fun of him, as the incident is narrated, that I'm allowing them to screw with what they allow on who was climbing the Iraq tree to get the sea walk, and a wind blew him into that tree and his legs were exposed and the Sahaba laughed at him

00:26:08--> 00:26:13

and also lost license and said, What are you laughing at? They said the out of civil law Look at his, you know, his legs are small.

00:26:14--> 00:26:25

The lung material that all the allow under was a short human being as you know, it's it's it's said that the the sitting person would be at eye level with him when he was standing. He was a short human being.

00:26:26--> 00:26:35

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said lahoma Yellowfin Misa neoman piano team and those two legs that you're laughing on

00:26:37--> 00:26:43

are more heavy on the scales of a loss of Hannah woods and on the Day of Judgment than the mountain of

00:26:45--> 00:27:19

why the man gave everything for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was an oma by himself. He's a nation he taught this a mother or an, you know, they allowed to an animal. When Iraq was giving her a hard time. They allow Andrew said, Look, I'm gonna send you a guy that if you if you give him a hard time, that means for sure that you are at fault, because there is no way that he's going to do anything wrong. He sent them the love numbers through though the law and he said it pains me to send him to you.

00:27:20--> 00:27:33

But he sent him to Iraq because he said, you know, maybe maybe that will fix the situation over there. And when they allow, the next time he saw a group of people coming from from Iraq,

00:27:34--> 00:27:38

and he started to ask them questions, everything that they answered with was spot on.

00:27:40--> 00:27:42

Where are you going to unbated it in?

00:27:43--> 00:27:54

The Kava, where are you coming from fudging? I mean, a dark valley is asking them questions they're answering with boron, and he says a FICO model loves to mess around with you have the loving Massoud amongst you, don't you? Yeah.

00:27:56--> 00:28:42

He taught the Omega Quran. his entire life was invested towards the dean. And so what they allow us to accomplish is an entire nation doesn't accomplish. And that's why it also los isonem says about me Becca, so do what they allow. I know the greatest human being who ever walked the face of the earth who was not a prophet, and I still love Salalah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, no wooziness a man who IV Becca if you took the man of herbal vacuum and put it on a scale and put the rest of the oma, all of the man, all of the faith you imagine all of the all moms and if man's and all this will harbor all the time in the hassanal bursaries the Abdullah bin Mubarak's the Maliki of new

dinars, the Ebon Tamia is that bizarre is that they have you put all of those people on one side and you put it on the other side. Raja hottie mano Avi Becker. Abu Bakr is a man was heavier than all of their all of us sitting here today. One man out does billions in his eemaan Why? Because everything about Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was that Illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, He invested himself physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, he gave it his all blood, sweat and tears. It was all for the oma. It was all for Laila Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah.

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

The point that I'm trying to make dear brothers and sisters, is that Allah subhanho to Allah has given us certain capabilities and the loss of Hannah Montana has certain expectations of us and the expectations that Allah has of us is different than the expectations that people have set for us. Many of you your parents would be satisfied if you just, you know, prayed on time, were nice to them fasted, attended helpers here and there, they'd be happy. They said, hamdulillah You know, I'm good. You became the trophy half of kid and didn't completely, you know, humiliate them. hamdulillah great. You know, my kids doing all right or

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

You know, what, maybe a little bit more, you know, get involved with y m or mass youth or whatever, whatever it may be, and, and really put your heart into it. That's good enough. Okay, and hamdulillah good. You know, that's, that's all. That's all a parent could ask for. But Allah has other expectations for you. Look, the father of Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam didn't want him to be a prophet. He didn't have expectations for him. But Allah had expectations of him and loved him so lonely alone, I know had no parents to set expectations for him. But Allah subhanho wa Taala had expectations for him. I can't see that. So it's five minutes, okay.

00:30:37--> 00:31:15

You know, the point is, is that Allah subhanaw taala sets expectations for you. And I always mentioned this example, because I find it so significant. You look at what some individuals have been able to accomplish. And you know what, you go to almost any community in the United States today. And if that community is awesome, if you study it enough, you can trace it down to one person, you can track down one or two or three individuals who are doing everything, right. And that's a problem because they might get burned out, most likely more likely than not, they'll eventually get burned out. But it's usually on the back of one person, you go to some communities

00:31:15--> 00:31:55

you see Mashallah, you know, in terms of youth activities, social activities, for an Hadeeth, whatever it may be interfaith social work, social justice, like that community is doing an awesome job. And then you find out, it's just one, they just have an incredible Imam or they have an incredible director, or they have an incredible, you know, brother or sister that's behind the scenes organizing all this stuff. It almost always happens when you go and you study communities. Now, the reason why those have accomplished so much is because they were all awesome, right? They all had that drive, they had that motivation. But somehow a lot in our day and age, it's just the

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

fact that it's very few, you know, there is many from the earlier generations,

00:32:01--> 00:32:17

or even just a few from the from the later generations that take on that task that really put their hearts and dedicate themselves to this message. And I always use the example of Shama de la him a whole lot to honor what that man accomplished by himself.

00:32:18--> 00:32:57

Tire Oman would not accomplish in our day and age, in fact, what he accomplished with his eyes when he was paralyzed, and he was just writing letters with the last few years of his life with his eyes, debating with people sending letters to different people debating with his Christian nurses, and one of his Christian nurses accepting Islam because he used his eyes to give her our, we don't even do that with our full capability with our entire bodies. Right? But when Allah Subhana, WA, tada, puts that inspiration inside of you, you dedicate yourself. And so the question is with these last few minutes, I really didn't, that was supposed to just be the introduction to the talk.

00:33:00--> 00:33:02

But the question is that I have for you.

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

And then I'll let you think about it.

00:33:06--> 00:33:11

How much of your free time goes towards that either? Allah Mohammed also the law.

00:33:12--> 00:33:55

When you're sitting alone, how many of your thoughts are occupied by the situation of the oma and you're standing in front of a loss of Hannah hautala? serious things important things? When you are sad? What is it that usually gets you sad and gets you down? Right? Is it that your football team lost the game? Is it that your favorite celebrity or favorite athlete broke up with their girlfriend or broke up with their boyfriend? Or, you know, what is it that gets you down? Is it that you get a flat tire? You dropped your phone and you broke your phone? And you know, you don't have internet for today? What is it that gets you down? That actually burdens you? That actually weighs heavy on

00:33:55--> 00:34:17

your heart and on your thoughts? What is it that keeps you up at night when you're not able to sleep? Is it that somebody threw a really nasty comment at you on Facebook? Do you realize how shallow of a generation we are sometimes, right? What keeps you up at night seriously, that somebody made a comment that you didn't like somebody said something to you? And I'm going to show them

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

what meaningful things keep us up at night and occupy our thoughts. And when I get tired and I consume my body, and I consume my health and my time the greatest two blessings that are neglected as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:34:36--> 00:35:00

you know, what is it being used for when I'm tired physically, emotionally exhausted? What is it being used for? And if it's for something other than the cause that's going to determine your fate. And whether or not you will be in paradise or Hellfire whenever you have to Billa then there's a big problem there, because that makes you a neglectful person and it makes me a neglectful person. It makes

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

People have heedlessness and hafla. And so, I asked that question. I asked a lot of Canada to forgive me for the lengthy introduction, and if this talk wasn't more practical, but I hope throughout the conference inshallah Tada. There will be more practicality in the talks. And this was hopefully just an introduction to the conference in the Ibrahima can oma Ibrahim alayhis salam was an oma We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us the most glorious Omar to make us people who live up to the job description of a little bit. Maru for Nana Mancha. enjoining good and forbidding evil and we ask Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings Allah amin Zack malachite on Apollo Colorado stuffer
