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

bear with actually asking some of you, Shawn what's on and it's gonna be hard for me to hear but I'm gonna ask this question. What's something that you think that you can do?

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

That's Salahuddin at a UB Rahim Allah could not do, what something you can do, the Salahuddin couldn't do

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


00:00:20--> 00:00:31

That would end the lecture from now. Anybody else? Anybody want to give it a shot? What's something that's available to you that wasn't available to Salahuddin that you'll be Yeah, social media. Good. What else?

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

Football. I don't know. Maybe somebody played football?

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

Yeah. You over there.

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

Technology. Okay. Anybody else? Anything outside of the scope?

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


00:00:51--> 00:00:52


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

Tick tock Salahuddin was not on tick tock. You're right. Tell you

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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen.

00:01:04--> 00:01:18

What if I told you, Salahuddin Allah you will be Rahim Allah, who spent his life bringing glory to the soma, with his heart beating for most of the Arkansas. Never in his life made hedge

00:01:20--> 00:01:25

spamela never had the opportunity to actually go to hatch.

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

And I want you to think about his heart as much as it would beat for an Arkansas and a beat V Sabina

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

and a man who would acquire him and a man who would acquire closeness to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

But due to his responsibilities,

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

and due to the unique role that he had,

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

he never had the opportunity to go for Hajj.

00:01:51--> 00:02:20

But with that being said, How many people do you think have done hajj on behalf of Selaginella up Rahim Allah, how many people do you think at the mu pots at the bake Allah Humala bake the baker and Salahuddin made your art for him at the Kaaba made your app for their kids to be like Salahuddin during during pull off. But Allah subhanaw taala did not write him specifically down for a hedge in his own lifetime.

00:02:21--> 00:03:09

I want to title this lecture. What you can do that Salahuddin couldn't but I don't want to stop at Salahuddin Allah UB Rahim Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada has put on this earth. People who would there sit Nia with their truthfulness and their intention, they are able to achieve things that other people cannot even achieve with the actual deeds themselves be Sith Coniah with the truthfulness of intention, because when they say if I could I would they mean it. They mean every single bit of that I start with the example of Hajj and Umrah May Allah subhanaw taala facilitate and accepted hajj and umrah from each and every single person that is here Allah Amin, everyone say I mean, I started with

00:03:09--> 00:03:25

the Hajj and Umrah because in recent years, it's become fairly easy for Muslims from the west to go to Hajj and Umrah And subhanAllah we used to say, as we go, there are people that would come from different parts of the world. And they could only come to make Hydra ombre

00:03:26--> 00:03:34

in the last years of their lives, when they're so old because their countries would not allow them to come except at that point in their lives.

00:03:35--> 00:03:45

And then handed a lot over I mean Allah azza wa jal made it easy for us. It's a matter of financial expenses and that's it. If you can cross that obstacle, you can get there.

00:03:46--> 00:03:57

Many of you have heard of unhedged medica Shabazz. Malcolm X Rahim Allah, Malcolm X may have been in his mind, he said, I might be the first American to do Hutch

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

and may have been the first African American to do Hajj.

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

When he lands in Jeddah, he was lost for a long time almost an entire day, over 20 hours back and forth in the airport, trying to figure out where he was, had to go through the court to prove that he was Muslim, did not have a single person that was like him while he was there.

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

And in his diary, he wrote,

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

it seems like many people come here

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

and they come here for the title, so that they can go home and say that they did heads

00:04:35--> 00:04:39

of Hello, this is before social media. This is before people did the lawful like this.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

Before all of that, and he was worried that the intention may have been compromised. And he said I thought about a man in India I realized how blessed I am to be here and I thought about a man in India with a picture of the carrabba on his wall, who looks at it and sheds tears

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

And Allah subhanaw taala might accept his Hajj and not mine. So Fianna 30 Rahim Allah said something to the effect and how many hearts do throw off without bodies and how many bodies due to off without hearts would sit Coniah with the truthfulness of intention, you can attain things that you would not be able to attain even if you could do the deeds themselves. So I start off with that man so ladina UB Rahim Allah Allah, who because of his responsibilities, because of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has call upon him unique call upon him. He was not able to do something that perhaps his heart really really really desired for the sake of Allah.

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

I want to mention another person

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

and the Joshi Rahim, Allah, what are the Allahu taala? And in Abyssinia?

00:05:55--> 00:06:08

How much do you think? And Joshi wanted to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, WA, salam, all of this righteousness, all of this desire.

00:06:09--> 00:06:14

This was a man of deep Deen. This was a man who was steeped in his religion.

00:06:15--> 00:06:58

And he was waiting for this prophet to come. And now he knows that the prophet has come. And he is more sincere than all of those people of the book that have migrated to Medina, or the vast majority of them, supposedly, and wait of the next prophet. And he's holding down this kingdom, and he already was acting upon the fitrah of Justice, the fitrah of Justice and the prophets like someone he sent in the Sahaba to Abyssinia, he said, I'm sending you to a man who was a just king, he wasn't Muslim, but he was a just man, he had Aladdin. He had righteousness inside of him. Well read in the Bible knows all of the

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

all of the signs of the prophets accom.

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

And when Jafar called the Allah Tada, and who was in front of him,

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

and he comes to realize that this is the ambassador of the awaited Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Imagine how badly Natasha wanted to drop everything in Abyssinia and go to Mecca, and then even more so when the prophets like somehow to establish himself in Medina, but for the sake of Allah, he had to stay in Abyssinia

00:07:32--> 00:07:43

and hide his Islam, because that was the best thing he could do for Islam. And in the letters that go back between him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam,

00:07:44--> 00:08:20

one of the narrations in the books of SIOP that he said to the Prophet sly Salam, a hadoo uneca Rasool Allah, I bear witness that You are the messenger of Allah. Well Annika lady Bashara be here isa Allah you Salam and you are the one that are isa Ali his Salam has given the glad tidings about what we just read and sort of the software Mobis seen on below sunnah yet team and better this Muhammad you're that one? That esigning is Salam gave the Bushra about gave the glad tidings about well hello hola ma V human on work.

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

Had I not been in the situation that I'm in?

00:08:25--> 00:08:57

Tell you Touka I would come to you so that I could carry your shoes yellow suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, I would be at your service. I be like Ennis of nilotica all the Allah Tada. And I'd be like Zeytinburnu Sabates all the allotted time. I know, a student to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam living in the beautiful community of Medina, perhaps deploying the strength, the political genius that I have accumulated over all of these years to your disposal, but

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

Allah subhanaw taala positioned an A Joshi in Abyssinia

00:09:04--> 00:09:45

and the best thing he could do for Islam was stay in Abyssinia, not go to the kava not go to Medina. And of course, there are moments that perhaps his heart burns, to say, you know, those two ships, because panela if you read the history of this man, it's incredible. He prepared two ships for the Muslims. Eventually they would migrate from Abyssinia to Medina, via the seas and they would join the Muslims that were coming from Yemen May Allah subhanaw taala restore the glory to all of these places panela and they would all arrive at Medina he's the one that provides the ships.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

You don't think at some point he's like, let me just board one of these chips let me go see it also la sigh summon come back. Let me go see him and come back. Of course. His heart desire the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But now Josh

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

She never got to go to Medina. Now Joshi never actually met the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu Allah Subhan Allah some of the scholars they say that he is the best of the tambourine. He is the best of the tambourine because technically speaking, he's not also hobby because he never actually met the Prophet slicin him. What man Subhan Allah was preyed janazah upon by the prophets lie Selim

00:10:25--> 00:10:36

facilitated the wedding feast of the prophets lie some and Abyssinia with whom Habiba about the Allahu anha from afar acted as a representative of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam in El Medina

00:10:38--> 00:10:42

and had all of this communication. But he never met him, Salah Harney, he was salam.

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

And you better believe that it was in his heart.

00:10:47--> 00:11:35

Salahuddin was prevented from Mecca and the Joshi was prevented from Medina. But how many people make dua for Salahuddin every time they go to Mecca and you cannot pick up a book of Sierra and not find in the earliest chapters, the chapter of a Najafi all the Allahu Taala Anhu and then his death when the prophets Elijah and I'm gathered the people in Medina the only time we have this in history imagine to pray janazah on a Najafi from hundreds of miles away in an Madina Munawwara the Joshy is a companion of the Prophet sly some in the books. He served this Deen well, but for the sake of Allah he couldn't go to Medina. For the sake of Allah Salahuddin couldn't go to Mecca

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

Musa and he has set up

00:11:40--> 00:11:57

is there a man more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than the this man other than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the fraternity of the prophets. How do you get better than Musa alayhis salaam, a man who the Quran speaks about so much

00:11:58--> 00:12:05

that it is as if Subhanallah it's a book about Mozartian salaam, sometimes his story at every juncture in his life,

00:12:06--> 00:12:19

everything from his triumph to his moments of despair, to his grace to his frustration, his emotions, and every episode of his life, somehow Subhan Allah has touched upon in the Quran

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

and Musa it is salaam was prevented from Jerusalem.

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

I want you to think about that. Subhanallah

00:12:28--> 00:12:42

when you feel sadness about being prevented, I'm gonna tell you something dear brothers and sisters I've never been to Philistine I've never been allowed in. May Allah Subhana Allah allow us all to enter into it while it is liberated Allah him I mean, I've never been there.

00:12:44--> 00:12:47

And every time one of my brothers goes and they send me a picture from an AXA

00:12:48--> 00:12:56

I'm so happy for them, but a part of me just breaks inside. And I remind myself somehow I comfort myself with remembering musante his center.

00:12:57--> 00:13:48

I am not better than musante his salaam but musante salaam was never able to go to Jerusalem. Did he long for it? Yes. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If I could show you the grave of Musa alayhis salaam tattle Kathy will ACMA under the red dune. He asked Allah subhanho wa Taala before his death, and you'd near home in Alden mocha deserty Romea tumby hijo he said, Oh Allah, I have not been allowed into the Holy Land. Let me die just a stone's throw away from it. And Allah subhanahu Bucha Allah allowed him to die just outside of the holy land just outside of Alden will cut the sun. But with that, with that Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

night of it, it's not when Meraj led musante his Salaam in Salah along with all the other prophets were

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

in most of the lochsa

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

his grave was outside.

00:14:01--> 00:14:29

But Allah subhanaw taala who can transcend with his decree, all realms and all spaces, took the soul of Musa alayhis salam, and brought him behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Al Masjid Al Aqsa for that glorious Salah Salahuddin was prevented from Mecca and Joshi was prevented from Medina. Musa alayhis salam was prevented from Jerusalem.

00:14:30--> 00:14:42

Because at the end of the day, Allah subhanaw taala has put you here for a purpose to serve Him and to do right by this oma in a way that you are uniquely suited to do.

00:14:44--> 00:14:53

And it's not the places that make us holy, the places are sanctified, because Allah Subhana Allah sanctified them

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

when up with the DAR or the alongside and who

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

sent a letter

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

to his brother's son, man and fantasy law the longtime and when he was dying, both of them were at the age of retirement and what a time to retire. Both of them had spread Islam significantly throughout the world. And they were both in their old age.

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

And above that of that sense, and man and father see a letter

00:15:21--> 00:15:32

and he says, Hello ma il ALDL Makaha he says, listen on my brother come to Masjid Al Aqsa come to the Holy Land. Let's live the rest of our days here.

00:15:33--> 00:15:39

And salaam will the Allahu Turner and her response to him. And he says in Ottawa law to cut this

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

the land does not make anyone holy.

00:15:43--> 00:15:58

What makes a person holy is their deeds, their brothers and sisters. When you are looking at huzzah right now may Allah subhana wa Tada free it's and liberate it and give them victory. Allahu Allah. I mean, it's not the land that's making the people bless it.

00:15:59--> 00:16:04

It's what Allah subhanaw taala has put in the hearts of those people that makes them worthy.

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

It's not like you come out there, and you are righteous.

00:16:10--> 00:17:01

It's the Allah subhanho wa Taala has put something and ingredients in the air in the water in the environment, that is then nurtured in the hearts of the people generation after generation that remain upon the truth, Vahid ina al Huck, remain upon the truth, and remain completely undeterred by those who betray them. Those who take them openly as enemies and those who turn their backs on them, those who dropped the airstrikes on them. And those that secretly signed papers behind closed doors, those that starve them, and those who are supposed to be their brothers that sign records and sign all of these records.

00:17:02--> 00:17:08

With those that starve them, they remain undeterred. They remain upon the truth no matter what.

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


00:17:12--> 00:17:58

because they have a truthfulness inside of them. They have a slip inside of them. I want to bring it back to you and me for a moment. Because sit Coniah the truthfulness of intention with the prevention of circumstance is what Allah subhanaw taala will call you to account for on the Day of Judgment. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran Meenal me Nina regionalen Sadako Ma, Allah Ali, Amin, whom am Cavanna woman whom my young toddler, one bed DeLeeuw Tabby de la, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah says that from the believers, there are those who were truthful, to the covenant that they took with their Lord. Some of them have an opportunity to prove that sincerity that truthfulness to Allah

00:17:58--> 00:18:15

subhanaw taala right away. Some of them are held back one, but the roots are de la, but they never change their intention. Their intention remains as sincere, as pure as the day that they made it the very first time

00:18:16--> 00:18:36

this was revealed in accordance with a man like Anicet and another the uncle of Anicet bumalik, may Allah be pleased with them, and a says about his uncle and us that he missed the better. And he told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if I have another chance, Allah will surely see what I will do.

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

An analysis of nomadic says that his uncle and us on the Day of erode when people started to flee,

00:18:44--> 00:18:56

he was a man who actually started to go closer towards the battlefield. And he said, I can smell the scent of a Jana. I can smell it I smell the sense of paradise.

00:18:57--> 00:19:16

And he was so sincere, that he moved forward completely undeterred, at every single moment, and I asked you, do you think that unless even another made that oath one time in his life just told the prophets lie some that and forgot about it? And then if it came in, he remembered what he said?

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

Or was he constantly

00:19:20--> 00:19:25

renewing his heart with Allah Subhana Allah to Anna until the moment came?

00:19:27--> 00:19:52

And he showed that he was sincere the entire time. Somebody you say chef maker, I can go to hedge Victor, I can go to Amara. Is that just something you say every once in a while? Or is it something you wake up with? Is it something you make your out with on a regular basis? Because if that's the case, you may meet Allah subhanaw taala on the day of judgment, and find that you have made many hedges and many cameras without actually setting foot and muck.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

Return on Sadako Mirandola because there are some people that are not bound

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

by circumstance, they're bound by covenant. They took an oath with ALLAH SubhanA wa atatiana. And the only thing that stops them from doing more is that the circumstances don't allow them to do more. It comes back to what's here.

00:20:15--> 00:20:28

Do you mean what you say? And do you say what you mean? When the Sahaba would tell the prophets lie some if this happens, or that happens, they were truthful. And there's a time element to this all by the way.

00:20:30--> 00:21:11

Because just because you were sincere at some point in your life, does not mean that you're sincere. Now, just because you had it turned on at some point in your life, does not mean that it didn't shut off at some point. You don't arrive at Sith you don't arrive, a truthfulness. And then suddenly, you just stay on the land of truthfulness, and are never deceived by your intentions. You don't just get there. Allah subhanaw taala says, Allah I'm yet needed. Lavina Amanu untuck Shara khulumani, they Karela one another laminal Huck isn't a time for those who believe to soften their hearts to the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala and the truth that was revealed, some of us have Wake Up Calls

00:21:11--> 00:21:50

in our lives. And this is a verse that causes many people to turn their lives around that cause some of the greatest scholars of Islam to come forth as scholars, rather than die as thieves rather than die as apostates. Because Allah sent them something special. And them yet neither Lavina Ave and Teixeira Colaba, homily Vic Lillahi wa Manasseh middle Huck isn't a time for those who believe to soften their hearts to the remembrance of Allah and what He has revealed from the truth. Allah subhanaw taala would send them something special, a moment where they'd wake up for Maliki Medina, Rahim Allah. It was one he was drunk and he was playing with his daughter, and he accidentally

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

dropped her and she died.

00:21:53--> 00:21:56

That's when he woke up to this verse,

00:21:57--> 00:22:08

To fellate of Narayana Rahim Allah. It's when he was a highway robber. He was literally attacking people along the various robots.

00:22:09--> 00:22:26

And one day, he heard this verse being recited, and he changed his life. So many different scholars have a moment where this verse changed their lives, where they suddenly made Toba to Allah subhana wa Tada. But it wasn't the moment that counted.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

It wasn't just the moment that counted.

00:22:30--> 00:22:34

Malika dinar Rahim Allah went to fetch him

00:22:35--> 00:22:53

and he started to grow himself in connection to Allah subhana wa Tada every single day afterwards, filleted him doing, Rahim, Allah Rahimullah moved to Makkah and became a person who connected himself to the high domain. All of these people had a moment that hit them and then they switched.

00:22:54--> 00:23:31

They turned the moment into momentum, constant momentum to Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah says, What I according to Kaleena, who told Kitab him and carbon Fatah Allah, Allah human Ahmed focus at coloboma, what kathira? Minimum fantasycon. Don't be like those people that came before you, who time passed. And then their hearts became hard. Like the people of the book that came to their hearts became hard, and many of them became wicked transgressors. I mentioned to you in the Joshy are the Allahu Tada Anhu and his love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some of those people that moved to Medina,

00:23:33--> 00:23:36

from the people of the book, and said, When the Prophet of Allah comes,

00:23:38--> 00:24:09

because all of the signs from the toad or from the Bible, or that he's going to come here, when he comes, we will dedicate ourselves to Him. But time went on and the hearts became hard for Cosette coloboma, some of you had a moment that Allah sent you in your life, where you said, Yeah, Allah, I'm going to do this, I'm going to do this. I'm going to do that. And then you fell short of your own expectations of the promises that you made to Allah subhanaw taala in the moment, because time went by and you got comfortable again.

00:24:10--> 00:24:30

And when you got comfortable, you got complacent. So sure, some people may have missed brother and said, Yeah, rasool Allah, I would go to when it comes, and maybe they forgot about that. Right. But what distinguishes what distinguishes a person of truth is that the time factor

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

does not interfere because they renew their intentions regularly. They're constantly getting back to and saying, Yeah, Allah, I want this Yeah, Allah if I'm given the opportunity to do this, I will do this. Yeah, Allah opened this door for me. Yeah, Allah. My heart is constantly beating for a new way to please you. Do not let me be deceived. By the circumstances. Let me instead have a renewed intention on a daily basis.

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

Bala antihuman Emmett October 8, October 9, October 10, October 11, October 12.

00:25:08--> 00:25:09

The dead babies from Gaza,

00:25:11--> 00:25:23

dismembered human beings, your brothers and sisters, they have not been dismembered any less. The airstrikes have not led up there circumstances have only gotten worse.

00:25:25--> 00:25:27

But if this was just a moment for you,

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

alright, I'm tired now.

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

How much more of this can I handle?

00:25:34--> 00:25:48

How much more of this can I act for? How much more of this Can I dedicate myself to? At some point, we've got to get back to normal life. At some point, I've got to get back to my day to day.

00:25:50--> 00:25:58

And so while the people continue to suffer Subhanallah we're coming up on 90 days Dear Brothers and Sisters, 90 days

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

while people continue to suffer,

00:26:02--> 00:26:07

we move on. hearts become hard. We go back to our everyday

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

whereas there are sincere believers will lie sometimes, an elderly woman would come up Subhanallah and would start crying and saying that I've been praying 200 I've been praying to the AMOLED every single night I'm making your art for the people because hamdulillah

00:26:26--> 00:26:28

some people move on and some people don't.

00:26:30--> 00:27:11

It's not true, that a numbness can develop. But a numbness cannot be insincerity. It's natural that at some point, your heart feels like it's getting used to this or you psychologically shut off because it's not normal to keep on seeing these things. But your deeds Do they speak to a sincere intention. Ya Allah, you have opened up my eyes, my heart to a reality to a new reality that I really wasn't paying attention to. And the people of Philistine and the people of Gaza. Yeah, Allah, my heart is ready at every moment. Anytime I have an avenue

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

that opens itself up.

00:27:15--> 00:27:20

You're going to see that I'm going to do what I can to please you Yeah, Allah and to uplift them.

00:27:22--> 00:27:48

Don't be like the people who time passes by and their hearts become heart. Be like the people who renew their hearts on a daily basis. And then on the day of judgment, they find all of these deeds that they have never even done, but that they sincerely wanted to do because Allah subhanaw taala knows what is in the depths of your heart. Allah subhanaw taala knows what you yearn for. Allah subhanaw taala knows what drives you every day.

00:27:51--> 00:28:23

And I see a lot of young people here, if you're that person, mashallah, who says, if Allah gives me the ability to do this, then I'm going to memorize the Quran, then I'm going to become a scholar of the deen, then I'm going to be a person who does Dawa, then I'm going to be a person who does this. I'm going to be a person who does that. You start crafting your life in accordance with that right now. When you look at the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you see how young they were when they died,

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

many of them died so young.

00:28:29--> 00:29:09

But it was because from the moment that the prophets I saw them entered into their lives, they dedicated themselves to the Prophet sallallahu. Ana, he was setting them and they took advantage of whatever was available to them at that moment, until Allah subhanaw taala brought them to a place to where they could act upon what they had learned. At every single moment, there was an accumulation of knowledge, and there was an exertion towards that which was righteous. But do you forget the moment that your heart softened the first time? It can happen, a look at a study called the low tide I'm home when he was in Medina, and some people came from Yemen.

00:29:11--> 00:29:21

May Allah subhanaw taala bless our Yemen, everyone say I mean, when the people came from Yemen, and the prophets like some mentioned, the softness of their hearts

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

and they asked for the Quran to be recited to them.

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

And as the Quran was recited to them, they started to cry.

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

Beckett will the Allahu Anhu looked at them.

00:29:33--> 00:29:36

And he said, How can I couldn't have Kovalam kasatkina Lumina.

00:29:37--> 00:29:49

I remember when we were like that before our hearts became hard. I remember when the Quran used to move us to tears the way it moved them to tears. You see people come up and take the shahada and you say subhanallah

00:29:51--> 00:29:57

I remember when I had that type of connection or when I felt that type of connection to Allah subhanaw taala

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

time went on

00:30:01--> 00:30:17

Are you renewing the deeds that are available to you with the intention that is ever presents? Are you constantly going back to where your heart is? I'll give you an example. Subhanallah of the time factor.

00:30:18--> 00:30:24

And subhanAllah I was telling people this a month ago, and I'm gonna share it with you here.

00:30:25--> 00:30:31

I don't know about you all. But in the United States, sometimes our Muslim communities become divided. Does that happen in the UK?

00:30:32--> 00:30:37

Do you all have division sometimes? Really? British Muslims fight.

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

I've seen you know, but it's okay. You're not unique.

00:30:43--> 00:30:56

You're not unique to it. Your muscles get divided people start fighting each other randomness it just seems like it seems like everyone starts picking a fight with everybody else right and the division divides and it removes the steam.

00:30:58--> 00:31:28

A tough shadow tells Huberty your your steam, you fail and your steam goes away. You take all of the energy that you should be using for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala to push the community forward, and you direct it towards each other. And you fight each other. And you spend all of your time destroying the community from within rather than building the community to the potential of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and I told people Subhanallah that in the immediate aftermath of Gaza, I said mashallah, we're so united right now.

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

Everyone's so focused

00:31:32--> 00:31:37

on Allah, I started to the people in my own Masjid. I said, Remember how you feel right now?

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

When a month or two passes,

00:31:42--> 00:31:44

or you start fighting like a bunch of boneheads again,

00:31:45--> 00:32:10

remember how your hearts feel right now towards one another? Remember how focused you are right now on one cause, which is uplifting the people of Philistine before you get tired of Philistine and you go back to your heart's being directed towards fighting each other. Remember how it is in this moment? Because Thana any human element focus that can overwhelm. Time passes by, and then there you go again.

00:32:11--> 00:32:31

There you go again, fighting amongst yourselves bickering amongst yourselves. One of the amazing things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought to the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not just a refocus, but they no longer had energy to fight themselves.

00:32:33--> 00:32:55

These tribes that had been fighting each other, there's a certain type of emptiness. What's driving you? Why are you fighting over ego? Why are you fighting over a tribe? Your tribe says your tribe says, Who cares? Your dad, my dad, who cares? Right? But then Islam comes. Suddenly all these people are one tract one focused.

00:32:57--> 00:33:00

When you're in bed, and you're outnumbered, you don't have time to bicker.

00:33:01--> 00:33:27

When you're in Ohio, then you're surrounded from directions. You don't have time to bicker. When you're in the hunt up when you're in the trench. And literally, one break in the trench exposes your vulnerability as a community. You don't have time to bicker. You don't have time to fight about anything. You don't have time to start chanting poetry about your tribe and my tribe or whatever it is, because the trench needs to be sturdy, I need to make sure that I'm holding my own.

00:33:29--> 00:34:10

But then once you're out of the trench, and you get comfortable, it's harder because at that point, complacency sets in, and when complacency sets in. Then suddenly you start to direct your energies once again at each other rather than towards the goal that you had. When Allah Subhana Allah says, well, I'll close the movie humbly lucky Jamia and Walter for Rocco. Hold on to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala all of you together do not become divided. What does Allah say next? Half of you are asleep either. That means I'm super boring or that means you've been here for a long time or that means you all were out a New Year's Eve doing something. Hopefully all doing piano lead in the

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


00:34:12--> 00:34:13

Finish the idea.

00:34:14--> 00:34:17

While tossing will be happy Elijah me and Walter for Rocco

00:34:19--> 00:34:23

was Kuru near Matala. Hiya Alikum is contour

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

for Allah Sabina Kuru become for us back to be near Mata he wanna hold on to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala all of you together don't become divided when the Quran airman's Allah and ECAM and when you forget, remember the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala upon you when you were enemies to one another for Allah Bina Kenobi coming Allah azza wa jal brought your hearts together. You were on the heels of disbelief you were about to perish killing each other in disbelief but Allah subhanaw taala brought you together with one cause what happens

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

The intentions can become corrupted. Our memory can become short.

00:35:07--> 00:35:53

And our deeds can start to reflect lowly goals rather than higher aspirations. Your brothers and sisters be people of him, Be people have ambitions, be people who have high lofty goals. You talk to those young people Subhanallah and Philistine. You talk to those young people in Gaza, those young people in the visaa Those kids in Gaza, may Allah subhanaw taala protect them all. May Allah subhanaw taala protect them all. May Allah subhanaw taala allow them to come out of this May Allah subhanaw taala accept their debt as shahada May Allah subhanaw taala allow those children to grow up to have that fire lit in their hearts and to carry the torch to the generation after them. Allah

00:35:53--> 00:35:57

humma Amin those kids in Huzar right now they're focused.

00:35:58--> 00:36:07

Kids in Palestine are focused. They know they've been created for something other than this world. high ambitions. People have Quran

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

people who know that they have to hold down the fort.

00:36:16--> 00:36:32

How do you generate that in people? Sometimes Allah subhanaw taala needs to break something for you and this is the reality I'm gonna end with this sometimes Allah azza wa jal needs to break something for you. For you to find your resilience. Sometimes ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada increases the pressure.

00:36:34--> 00:36:44

And in that you find your perspective. Sometimes the difficulty is what unlocks an eternity of ease. Sometimes it squeezes you.

00:36:45--> 00:36:48

And that's where the best version of you comes out.

00:36:49--> 00:36:52

Don't let your hearts rusty brothers and sisters.

00:36:53--> 00:37:29

Don't get too complacent. Don't go back to what you were doing. You know what the the worst thing to do with your heart is? Scroll dead babies and Subhanallah your algorithm feeds you something right on social media, your algorithm feeds you what it knows you like your algorithm feeds you what it knows that your knifes craves, and your algorithm also feeds you what the Zinus wants you to see. Because they're trying to suppress the voice of Palestine. May Allah subhanaw taala allow them to fill Allahumma Amin, they're trying to suppress the Palestinian voices. They're trying to suppress the news out of Gaza. They don't want you paying attention anymore.

00:37:30--> 00:37:36

Not the worst thing is when your social media feed goes back to being a bunch of vanity.

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

You know, by your scrolling,

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

something happens here. And something happened here.

00:37:46--> 00:37:50

When you start scrolling vanity once again, and focused on vanity,

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

then that's a sign that you need to get back to that.

00:37:54--> 00:38:39

Allah has equipped you dear brothers and sisters, giving you a voice, giving you a course giving you an opportunity. But you wake up every single day and tell yourself why you are here and what you're going to do for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and for the Ummah, especially when it comes to our brothers and sisters and Philistine. If you were comfortable on October 6, with the status quo of Philistine the status quo of Palestine, that's a problem of iman. You would not be comfortable with the Haram in Mecca occupied, how are you comfortable with the Haram with the place that has sanctified the first Dibbler of the Muslims occupied? If you were comfortable on October 6, that

00:38:39--> 00:38:47

never go back to being comfortable again. Until Allah subhanaw taala freeze every single part of it.

00:38:49--> 00:38:51

And we have a chance to say Allah

00:38:52--> 00:38:56

right now, my heart beats from Mecca, like Salahuddin

00:38:58--> 00:39:05

right now my heart beats from Edina, like in a Joshy right now My heart beats for quotes, like Musa

00:39:06--> 00:39:46

with ya Allah allow me to follow the instructions from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to constantly act upon the best of guidance with only the best of intentions. May Allah never allow our hearts to harden. May Allah never allow our goals to become lowly. May Allah subhanaw taala never allow our egos to drive us against each other. And instead May Allah subhanaw taala direct us all together as one on one community towards this special place that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew we could rise to in this dunya May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to rise to it for the dose of Allah in a time of eternity and agenda with our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam

00:39:46--> 00:39:49

Allah Allah I mean, does that come allow Heydo Santa Monica Welcome to La hibbott account
