00:00:14--> 00:00:21

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was sahbihi on Walla

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

hamdu Lillah Allahu Allah Allah May Allah May Allah for whoever wanted one minute a Fantasia della Julio Masha My dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:37--> 00:01:21

The topic, which is the topic of the conference today that I'm going to address in Sharla, for funeral Illallah. and fulfill Loyola law, as you have probably known already is about how does one run towards or escape towards a loss of Hannah Montana for federal Illallah escaped to Allah? And when we talk about escaping to Allah, then we are talking about four essential pillars or factors in this equation.

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

The first of these pillars is

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

the individual, the person who is doing their escaping.

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

The second factor is,

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

what are you escaping from?

00:01:38--> 00:01:49

Because any escape means that you are escaping from something, what are those things that you are escaping from sacralized?

00:01:50--> 00:01:55

Thirdly, you're escaping to Allah.

00:01:58--> 00:02:04

And Allah is the third element in this equation, which is necessary for us to understand and to

00:02:05--> 00:02:09

comprehend. And lastly, the fourth element is

00:02:12--> 00:02:19

how does one escape to Allah? What is the main elements of that escape?

00:02:20--> 00:02:42

So those are the four things that inshallah I will talk about, in trying to understand this very short sentence, which is only three words that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran, and really is almost like a whole system of how we live our lives fulfilled rule in Allah. So first of all,

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

you the individual,

00:02:46--> 00:02:54

Allah Subhana, Allah is ordering you to escape to Allah to run towards Allah. Who are you?

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

And what are you about? What are you made of?

00:03:00--> 00:03:20

Well, this involves you as an individual to re Examine yourself. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala many times in the Quran, he talks about and invites you as the human to think Who are you? What is your origin?

00:03:22--> 00:03:35

Hell at the island, Shani heydo, Mina de la mia Quan, che escuela does the human not remember that? Or has they come over human a time?

00:03:36--> 00:03:44

A period of time when he was nothing to be mentioned, and he was nothing known. Let me share mathcore I didn't exist.

00:03:45--> 00:03:55

So you as an individual, there was a time when you didn't exist. You are nobody in the existence. Nobody knew about you. Nobody heard about you.

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

Secondly,

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

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

de la Shan Houma la minegishi in ha la Minato fighting holla Papa Dara.

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

Whoa to the human.

00:04:21--> 00:04:25

Destroy the human how ungrateful he is.

00:04:27--> 00:04:40

When he rejects our loss of Hannah, ungrateful. Allah says minegishi in holla, from what did He create him from what was he created? Why was your origin

00:04:42--> 00:04:47

may not fit in halaqa, who you were created from a small sperm.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

A sperm which is a cell is a very small cell that you can't even see with your eyes. That's how small you are. That's the beginning of your creation. So a lot hands on you.

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

is the word not far and he reminds you many times in the Quran when you look at the LA lacandon in Santa Monica last night it started the creation from this small cell. And then a lot of anti describes how the process changed from Maha lacuna note Fatah Allah aka the note for changed into a leech like plot, and then the alaka became a MOBA and then Allah put some bones on this and then after that, he put muscles on the bones and so on. So, that was your original again it was something very small, you are created from a water which is considered very weak man in maheen.

00:05:44--> 00:05:57

This is all this is all words in the Quran. Somebody might say, Well, what are you talking about this is sounds a little bit too coarse words but this is all the lies mentioned in the Quran is your origin because he wants to remind you who you are.

00:05:59--> 00:06:06

And Allah also reminds you who you work, who you are going to be, or what you are going to be

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

because

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

there will come a time

00:06:14--> 00:06:22

when you as a human think that you are so strong and powerful and you're able to do anything and there's no barriers.

00:06:23--> 00:06:28

But Allah reminds you that there will come a time when you will become weak and feeble.

00:06:31--> 00:06:35

So Allah subhanho wa Taala created you weak

00:06:36--> 00:06:41

and then he gave you strength after that weakness came strength

00:06:43--> 00:07:03

mudgil and embody laughing Buddha and then after the strength there was weakness and old age. So even though you might think you are strong and big and powerful and intellect intelligent and all that, you are going to head down a slippery road,

00:07:04--> 00:07:24

which you're going to be very old, your hair is gonna go gray, your back is gonna is gonna curve, your muscles are gonna weaken, your power is gonna, is gonna diminish, you're gonna need sticks you and I need maybe a chair you get your eyesight is going to weaken, your teeth are going to drop out you'll go and then

00:07:25--> 00:07:27

you will be in the ground.

00:07:29--> 00:07:47

And then you will be food for the worms and the creatures and the ground. So your end result is that you will be eaten by other organisms. That's why Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran, he said that

00:07:48--> 00:08:00

while three bloom sLl highlighted dounia cama de la mina sama was it remind them, give them the example of this life, like water comes down from the heavens.

00:08:02--> 00:08:29

Yeah, this water comes down from the heavens, what does he what happens to this water he interacts with the ground. And then it brings out the plants and the vegetation and the crops come out. And they come out very nice and very green, pleasant to see bringing back all the necessary food that you can use from this plantation.

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

But then what happens

00:08:33--> 00:08:39

then it's lightens up, and it's blazes.

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

It becomes dry,

00:08:44--> 00:08:53

it becomes yellow, it becomes weak. And then it might even burn like hay burns and then it becomes nothing Obama.

00:08:54--> 00:09:01

That's it. That's the end. So this is you, this is you that human and even if you might become like that

00:09:03--> 00:09:07

the greenness then there will come a time when you will be consumed as well.

00:09:09--> 00:09:30

Because the even the green grass is consumed by animals. So very simply My dear stray brother Don't take too long on this specific. The elements here of Pharaoh in Allah which is you. You have to remember who you are and Allah Subhana Allah wants you to continuously remember who you are.

00:09:31--> 00:09:48

Firstly, that you are nothing you are weak, and Allah brought you into existence. And whatever you have is from Allah. It's not from your own achievement is what Allah has given you of power of strength of health, of wealth.

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

have the ability to to speak,

00:09:54--> 00:09:58

lemma holobiont Allah Allah Jalla wa nain or dishonor worship, attain

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

I showed you on guided you everything that you have is from Allah subhanaw taala. And then in the end, you're going to become old, feeble, weak, and you're going to be put in the ground.

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

So in very simple terms, you are powerless

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala, you have very little

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

that's number one.

00:10:21--> 00:10:26

The second element that we said in understanding for federal law

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

is about

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

understanding and we go to the third element, which I mentioned was a loss of pinata. Because for federal Illallah,

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

escape

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

to Allah.

00:10:43--> 00:10:51

Go to Allah. Now, if you understand, and this like I said, the Quran mentions the process and reminds us who you are.

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

Then you need to also understand who is Allah?

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

Who is a law

00:11:01--> 00:11:12

that you are escaping to, because if you are a human who is weak, you need to escape, and you need to have shelter and protection from someone who is strong.

00:11:14--> 00:11:16

Someone who has ability,

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

someone who has

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

control

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

someone who owns everything.

00:11:25--> 00:11:38

You know, you have to have the control you have to go to allow has the control has the ability to give, and the ability to deny alarm alarm, Mark Ladyman an act while I'm learning it my update,

00:11:40--> 00:11:49

there is none that can give what what you have prevented a noncom prevent what you have given a law is on who gives an offense and the law is are reserved.

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

And the law is the one who has the power.

00:11:55--> 00:12:08

And the law is the one who owns everything. So it's not strange that we find the same surah that Allah talks about fulfilled through Illa Allah, what does Allah remind us after that is it in Allahu Allah Zaku Lulu washing machine.

00:12:10--> 00:12:20

You are turning and escaping to Allah, Allah as a result, Allah doesn't want you to feed him. He doesn't want you to give him any clothes. You don't want us to drink because he is the one who gives you his job.

00:12:21--> 00:13:00

And he is the one he's the one who has the power and the strength. You're going to escape to somebody for protection and escape the zone you should go to someone who has strong strength and someone who can give. And the law low math is similar to a lot of the lahemaa is similar to what he learned he went to Samoa to a lot of one I see him Allah is the one who has an almost everything that is in the heavens and the earth. And he owes all that is is the heavens and the earth. The law he math is similar to a lot of what he law he mentions is similar to a lot so everything belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's who you're escaping to.

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

And that's why when

00:13:05--> 00:13:12

one of the the Holika Hashem he shall ignore Abdul Malik during the Omega time.

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

And then, in the Kaaba in the harem of Mecca, they saw Salim, he saw Salim a bin

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

Omar

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

al Shabaab

00:13:28--> 00:13:38

sorry Salim bin Abdullah bin Omar Salim, even Abdullah the grandson of honorable hapa and Salim was a very righteous man, very knowledgeable scholar.

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

So he shall approach Salim and he know who Salim was he said to Salim, he said

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

what he was he was

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

in the habit of doing

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

so he said to Salim

00:13:57--> 00:13:58

Allah

00:13:59--> 00:14:10

Do you need anything? Can I help you anyway? And he is the king he's like the leader Yeah. Is Sally halifa or from the halifa family? As I saying you know can I offer you anything Do you need any help?

00:14:12--> 00:14:12

Allah

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

says Salim got very

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

annoyed

00:14:18--> 00:14:28

about the study and this Eleni, Phoebe Tila, you don't have any shame asking me if I need anything in the house of Allah in the sacred city of this house.

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

We're all our lives being answered here.

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

So he Shambo backed off.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

And Salim continued his

00:14:39--> 00:14:44

his image of the harem and then he left the messages.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

When he left the masjid he Sham approached him again. You thought maybe you know inside the message, it wasn't appropriate to ask him he said now ask him again. Like a hazard. You didn't think so Salim said I mean? How are you? dounia amylovora

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

Are you asking me for something from the needs of the dunya? Or the needs of the hero? He said love I mean, how are you doing? Yeah, I can only help you from the dunya. And if you need anything from the dunya

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

so Salim said,

00:15:16--> 00:15:25

By Allah, I didn't ask the dounia from the one who owes the dunya so why should I ask you from someone who doesn't own it?

00:15:28--> 00:15:46

So Limassol to dunya mania makuha. Forgive us Allah hammam La Liga. You don't own the dunya you have nothing Why should I asked you? Why should I come to you? Why should I knock on your door? if I need anything I can go to Allah subhanaw taala even then I didn't ask Allah for for for this dunya

00:15:47--> 00:15:54

so if you are escaping, you have to escape to Allah subhanho wa Taala who has the ownership?

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

Who has the ability to give you the

00:15:58--> 00:16:27

strength? Who has the ability to give you refuge who has the ability to give you shelter? Who has the ability to answer your needs and Mujibur Masada were actually four. So who is it that will answer the one who is in need and is in dire need when he calls unto Him and He will remove all the despair and the calamity? Allah subhanho wa Taala Illa whom Allah is there any God with Allah?

00:16:30--> 00:16:36

So one other aspect in our understanding for federal law is understanding who is a law.

00:16:37--> 00:16:43

And again, this is one of the fundamental knowledge is in Islam that we have to study we have to know a lot is

00:16:44--> 00:17:02

this is one of the purpose of our existence. And again, it is no coincidence that Allah Subhana Allah says in the same Surah Surah dheireadh fatfield rueil Allah Allah says one up to Jin se la de Abu

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

I didn't create

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

Elgin

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

well is except Leah bodoni to do a bada towards me.

00:17:17--> 00:17:26

Now Mujahid Mujahid who is the who is the student of urban ambus

00:17:27--> 00:17:32

Mujahideen he is a student of an Ibis of an Ibis,

00:17:33--> 00:17:37

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wants a hug.

00:17:38--> 00:18:05

Even Ibis because of an Ibis, the prophet SAW Salem woke up one day 4pm late he was sleeping in the house of maimunah, who is the Antioch bus in our bus was there when the Prophet woke up he saw that his widow was prepared the and hid the bowl of water was there, ready for him to exercise? So the processor said who proposed this here? So now I busted I have I put it there. And he was a young man a

00:18:06--> 00:18:21

young boy. So the process lm hog, even our boss and he said, Allahumma Allahumma limita we have a COVID-19 teach him that that will teach him how to understand the Quran, the Quran and give him the fippa in the deen

00:18:22--> 00:19:15

The Tao of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Ibis was an authority and is an authority in Tafseer. He's a student was Mujahid, and Mujahid. He said I studied the Quran three times with even a bus. I said all the Quran three times within rhombus, every verse, I would stop him at every verse and ask him the meaning of the verse and understanding. So when which is giving you a Tafseer he's giving you the Tafseer of a bass who the Prophet sizer made up for him, that Allah give him the understanding. So Mujahid said well, Mahalo to Gino, an insane La Jolla, Abu Illa de la Fulani, meaning a bada here is Malika is to know Allah, I didn't create the gene and then except that they

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

should know me for the reason that they should be know me.

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

So Allah subhanho wa Taala has created us so that you should know Allah who is Allah? What are his beautiful names, and his beautiful qualities and his attributes and his actions. And that's part of the equation of fulfilling role in a law. You need to know Allah subhana wa Tada. You don't need to know how Allah looks.

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

Because that's not something you will be asked about. You don't need to know about our laws, you know, hand and face and foot and some people make this a issue of arguments and contention and you know, the wheel and the wheel and the GL

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

You'll need to know this what you need to know is a laws actions and a law is

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

the law said in a law in the process of law it is and what is known as Attorney law.

00:20:13--> 00:21:00

When I saw her the whole agenda, a law has 99 names 100 but one whoever encompasses this gate names will enter the agenda. So you have to engage with the names and the names are not about the the what we think is the physical qualities of Allah because Allah is beyond the imaginations as to how we said that to drink who will have harm he will not be not be in their farm the knowledge the imagination will not be able to reach a law you'll never understand how a law looks like or how his his his his he looks or his appears like but what Allah wants you to know is his actions are Rahman r Rahim Allah Salim Al Habib a semi, Al Abbas

00:21:01--> 00:21:15

Elmore, his alma del Rafa, I'll have all these names which tell you what a lot how Allah interacts. And then you can seek a law, what do you learn a smell Krishna rubia called on to allow this matters now.

00:21:17--> 00:22:05

So an essential part of our knowledge is to know Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because if you're going to escape to Allah, the third rule is Allah, you need to know who it was. And that's why the best of all knowledge, the best of all knowledge is to know a lot of knowledge of Allah. And that's why Allah said in my action, la manera by de la Lama, those who fear Allah, those who will only feel a lot truly from his slaves, or those who have a lot of Allah, they know Allah, Allah here doesn't mean those who have studied the Sharia and fippa and become, you know, have a PhD in Islamic Studies. And that's not what that means. It really means aligning will be the one who knows Allah.

00:22:05--> 00:22:13

So the one who is aware of Allah and understands online, understands the actions of Alliance studies, and interacts with those actions.

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

So we talked about knowing yourself,

00:22:19--> 00:22:21

we talked about knowing Allah.

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

The third thing we're going to talk about is knowing that which you are running away from because if you're escaping, you have to be escaping from something.

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

You have to be escaping from something. And what are you escaping?

00:22:37--> 00:22:40

Well, the reality of the matter is, there's lots of things out there.

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

There's lots of enemies out there.

00:22:47--> 00:22:58

There's also problems out there. There's lots of issues out there, because you are all we are all on a journey to Allah subhanaw taala we're all going on a journey. The journey is a journey.

00:23:00--> 00:23:01

And this journey,

00:23:02--> 00:23:16

there's lots of highway men on the journey, lots of tobacco closet, people trying to get between you and to give you issues on the journey. They are they are thieves and they are robbers and there are people that problems on the journey.

00:23:18--> 00:23:25

So you have to escape those if you want to get that to that journey safely, and to get the most out of the journey.

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

So your biggest or one of your biggest

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

enemies that you're trying to escape

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

is a shape on

00:23:40--> 00:23:41

the show you bond.

00:23:43--> 00:23:51

Who is there? As the prophet SAW Selim said, a shape on the Adam? The shape on is the wolf of urban either?

00:23:53--> 00:24:01

Why am I a coup de boomin lnmu arsia The wolf will only eat from the flock of sheep, the one that goes astray, the one that wanders off from the flock.

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

And shavon is the VIP is the wolf.

00:24:07--> 00:24:15

And he is there to get you. And he does his best and utmost to try and divert the human away from a loss of Hannah.

00:24:16--> 00:24:29

That's something that he promised that something that you found something that he he made an oath on himself. That's something that he that is his aim in life. That's his vision. That's his objective.

00:24:31--> 00:24:40

Yeah, so Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you something even better than all of this, which is that Allah has given you

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

starter is giving you a heads up

00:25:05--> 00:25:11

because he has already told you how this enemy is going to work, how the enemy is going to plot,

00:25:12--> 00:25:23

how the enemy is, how power to shape on the steps of the shape on how the shape on deals with you. how he's going to try and trick you the prophet SAW sent him has also clarified this.

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

And you know one of the biggest things that the shaytaan does what his utmost aim is Does anybody know?

00:25:33--> 00:25:45

The biggest thing that he can try to make you reach is obviously it would like you to disbelieve in Allah subhanho wa Taala but he the slogan that he wants to achieve devotee now.

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

He said

00:25:53--> 00:26:35

that's part of it. That's part of it. But then the bigger title is thumb, lat as you do acceleron shakin he said that the shavon is saying to Allah then you will not find most of them share killing, most of them will be ungrateful. They will not have sugar they will not be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala will not be grateful to you. They will not be sugar is the opposite of q4. Isn't it because Allah subhanho wa Taala said in their head they know who Sabine imageshack Kiran, maka, you're either a sharecare grateful or you're ungrateful which is what q4 is q4 is being ungrateful. So, that is the ultimate aim of the shavon

00:26:36--> 00:26:43

to make you a non shachar somebody who's ungrateful someone who doesn't recognize a loss of Hannah

00:26:45--> 00:27:03

and the loss of Hannah Tata has detailed for us the details of the shape on and what he does. So again, that's something that we need to know we need to understand because if you want to escape the shape barn, you have to be aware of his tricks and his how he's trying to get you

00:27:04--> 00:27:20

and the shape and will come to you from different directions. He will come to you from the front, he will come to you from the back. He will come to you from the right from the left. He will come to you with different ploys different tricks, he will come to you and lots of things that he will do.

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

So we have to know the shape on to escape the shape on secondly, while escaping.

00:27:29--> 00:27:30

We are escaping

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

ignorance, Jan.

00:27:35--> 00:27:39

We have to run away from Japan, because our Dean is the Dean of

00:27:40--> 00:27:49

Dean of knowledge on moto crop, we are the home of a crop of reading, of learning, of understanding.

00:27:50--> 00:27:57

fallible m parivartan. Allah Allah Muslim because as I said, the seeking knowledge is a is a must on every Muslim

00:27:58--> 00:28:10

and your follow livina marincola Dino to lane madora a low res those who have Eman and have ailment and so on. So we have to run away from Gen.

00:28:11--> 00:28:15

Go to knowledge, an invitation to study and to learn more.

00:28:16--> 00:28:20

We have to run away from the murase from the sins

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

to the hacer net.

00:28:25--> 00:28:43

And that's why we have to learn about the sins and why the sins are Why is the maaseiah Why is haram What does Allah not like? So Allah has put limitations. He's put them limitations that you should not cross the boundaries allow our inadequately American Hema

00:28:45--> 00:28:47

we're him Allahumma had him

00:28:48--> 00:28:51

when he said the process and give the example of the

00:28:52--> 00:29:08

of the person who who tries to keep away from the doubts keep away from the doubtful matters because it can dry tamer, like a shepherd who brings his sheep close to the boundaries of the king.

00:29:10--> 00:29:23

If you bring your sheep close to the boundaries to eat the grass, then it's very likely that one of the sheep might overstep the boundary and go into the property of the king

00:29:24--> 00:29:27

which is the protected Land of the king which you should not enter

00:29:28--> 00:29:46

and the loss of the processes and allowing the liquidity American humor every king has his protected space where Haman law has removed the areas of limitation that Allah has is his harem. So keep away from the head on don't bring your sheep close to the harem.

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

Okay, so you have to know this you have to know what is hot on so you keep away from it. And you have to study and you have to engage yourself and you have to know what's halon so that you

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

Come away from the hat on to hello and away from democracy run away from democracy to the hassle that

00:30:09--> 00:30:11

you have to also run away

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

from all that will result in the anger of a loss of power to

00:30:17--> 00:30:31

run away from the anger of Allah and the anger of Allah is linked to his Muharram as well. That which has made haram because Allah subhanho wa Taala dislikes for his a bad for his, his creation that they engage in Haram

00:30:33--> 00:30:52

in Turku, find Allah have a knee and ankle if you just believe if you are ungrateful, that Allah is not in need of you, he is self sufficient, while your body a body of he does not accept or he is not pleased, he does not want for his neighbor to engage in conferring disrespect, in disbelief in gratitude.

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

Also,

00:30:56--> 00:30:59

we are running away from

00:31:01--> 00:31:05

the problems that lie within ourselves.

00:31:06--> 00:31:14

Because we come with our own problems. our nafs also has a lot of problems which we have to escape.

00:31:16--> 00:31:24

And these are the problems which are related to our actions of the heart and the different sins that we have inside us.

00:31:27--> 00:31:34

We have to run away from all those things that will hold us down and prevent us from reaching a loss of Hannah hautala.

00:31:35--> 00:31:36

Like

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

greed,

00:31:39--> 00:31:40

greed,

00:31:42--> 00:32:02

and selfish selfishness and meanness and miserliness, all these things born and sure, they all hold you down. And you have to run away from this and that's why part of the test in the dunya is to try and overcome these negativity so that you escape from these.

00:32:03--> 00:32:12

That's why you have to give fella Dr. Hamill acaba, Allah says did not does he not be able to overcome the obstacle?

00:32:13--> 00:32:29

While neither are common acaba? What is the obstacle the obstacle is related to overcoming this greed for karaca either to free a slave or to feed somebody who is in a time of despair and time of famine. It's about charity and about giving

00:32:31--> 00:32:35

other problems that we have in our hearts as well which we have to overcome.

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

include things like

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

hate

00:32:45--> 00:32:46

hating others,

00:32:48--> 00:32:53

you know, this kind of hate is is a negativity that a person

00:32:55--> 00:33:05

have to come overcome this because you shouldn't, you should be loving, you should be caring. You know, that's why one of the prominent values of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was the user Rama

00:33:06--> 00:33:12

Omarosa, Nicola rahmatan Delilah. Meanwhile, Anna Rama, tuna moda, he said,

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

all the things that we have to come out of the desires and the loss that we have the Shahada,

00:33:19--> 00:33:25

which again, also tried to draw us down and to distract us away, we have to run away from the Shahada.

00:33:26--> 00:33:28

And again, that includes

00:33:29--> 00:33:43

Chahar the different desires that are out there, whether it's the desire of wealth, whether it's the desire of status, you know, I want to be this kind of status or whatever, or whether it's the desire of

00:33:45--> 00:33:50

the fantasies of the life and the last sense and so on different desires.

00:33:51--> 00:34:07

That's why you can find that those seven categories of people that Allah subhanho wa Taala shades on the day when there'll be no shade except his shade. Those seven categories of people are all people who have overcome their lusts and their desires.

00:34:08--> 00:34:22

And there's no time to talk about them because time is short, but you can go back and see those lusts and also the designs and read the read about them. So the third thing that we have spoken about is what are we running away from

00:34:24--> 00:34:48

running away from the shape on running away from amasi escaping our ignorance, escaping all those things that hold us bound bound have showered within ourselves, and so we have to overcome our neffs because the neffs is something that will try to always bring you down and that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala said in regards to the people who will be the inhabitants of agenda

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

one and half Mr. camara wanna have enough sign in our as for the one who fears the day, then he would she will start

00:35:00--> 00:35:13

than before are his Lord and he prohibits the neffs animal However, he provided him with snaps from the desires. So he controls his neffs so he doesn't allow the nest to wander into the desires.

00:35:14--> 00:35:22

escaping the desires of the next final agenda here Mauer, then the agenda will be the pace of a buyer.

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

And lastly, we'll talk about

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

what is the last thing that we said? Does anybody remember we said four things we said you have to know

00:35:36--> 00:35:44

yourself, because you're the one who is escaping. You have to know Allah subhanho wa Taala because you are escaping to Allah.

00:35:45--> 00:35:49

You have to know what you are escaping from and I've just explained that what is the fourth thing?

00:35:51--> 00:35:54

No, no Shabbat is one of the things you are escaping.

00:35:55--> 00:35:58

How to escape the method of escape

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

the method of running away

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

and escape into a loss.

00:36:06--> 00:36:20

And here, we're going to talk about three things. The first one of these methods in escaping to Allah subhanho wa Taala is by returning to Allah.

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

What is the word for returning to Allah

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

Toba.

00:36:27--> 00:36:29

Toba going back to Allah Subhana Allah

00:36:30--> 00:36:45

because if you're going to run an escape to Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to come towards Allah with the anticipation and the willingness to be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala so you have to repent to Allah.

00:36:46--> 00:37:06

That's why I lost my dad again mentions told towba importance of repenting to our last panel, and going back to Allah, acknowledging your sins, acknowledging your mistakes, and knocking on the door of Allah subhana wa tada to open the door so that he will accept you. That's where you're escaping to along with Toba.

00:37:07--> 00:37:10

And Toba is basically, in very simple terms,

00:37:12--> 00:37:24

is about understanding and acknowledging that I have made a mistake. And I feel very bad that I've done this mistake and Oh Allah, I don't want to do this again. So please forgive my mistakes.

00:37:25--> 00:37:28

And you know what Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive all sins.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

And that's the beauty.

00:37:32--> 00:37:35

Because Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts everyone.

00:37:36--> 00:37:46

You don't have to go through an Imam. You don't have to go through a priest. You don't have to have any time to pay any money. You don't have to just go directly to a loss.

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

Just fulfill rule,

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

escape to

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

go to a loss.

00:37:55--> 00:37:58

And we have so many beautiful hobbies.

00:37:59--> 00:38:12

And so many beautiful stories in Toba. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about how people who recognize the loss of pantalla recognize their realities and they repented to Allah.

00:38:14--> 00:38:17

And when the prophet SAW Selim gives us an example of such a person

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

who he said

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

that ethnobiol

00:38:26--> 00:38:38

for either a euro bill can be the man committed a sin. And then he turned to a loss of Hannah dinars and my Lord, forgive me my sin repented to Allah. So Allah

00:38:39--> 00:38:41

said it my buddy, and

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

your Fuzhou boy,

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

my slave, my servant, he has known that I he has a lord who forgives the sin and will account for the sin if it's not forgiven. So he has come to me I have forgiven my slave.

00:39:02--> 00:39:08

The profits ally send them said then from add that person, he then did the sin again.

00:39:10--> 00:39:24

And then he repented to Allah again, and Allah forgive him again. And then he done the sin, sin, sin the third time and he repented to Allah and Allah also forgiven his sin again, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala said,

00:39:25--> 00:39:39

afar to the AB de familia, filehub de Masha, I have forgiven my state. So let my state do what he wants, as long as he is repenting to a loss of Hannah Montana, that I will forgive his sin.

00:39:40--> 00:39:48

This is not an invitation to do the sin. But it's an invitation to acknowledge that Allah subhanaw taala will forgive.

00:39:49--> 00:39:54

And secondly to understand that when Allah when you turn to Allah and you run to Allah,

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

Allah is not like, you know, lava humans today.

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

A lot of them not most, not all of them, but a lot of them they, when you come to them

00:40:05--> 00:40:17

having been defeated, or having lost or having made a mistake, what's the first thing they will say to you? If they're if their parents or somebody close, you know, you made a mistake?

00:40:18--> 00:40:25

You know, maybe you did. I don't know, you went on a business venture and the money you lost and and then you come and say, my dad, you know,

00:40:27--> 00:40:46

didn't go to was the first thing they'll say to you. They'll say to your son, I told you so. And they'll start telling you off. Did I tell you don't do this? Did I say to you don't do this. You're very you're you don't listen, you you know you're disobedient. You're hard headed, you're stubborn, and they'll just tell you off. And then maybe they'll say okay,

00:40:48--> 00:40:56

now come back. They'll tell you off and they'll make you feel bad. That's if you're there as if they're close to you, if they're not close to you.

00:40:58--> 00:41:02

Like maybe they are the ruler or the governor, they might even punish you

00:41:03--> 00:41:12

for doing something wrong against them or going against them or whatever, might put you in prison even though you have come and say look, you know I did a mistake sorry.

00:41:14--> 00:41:15

The Punisher isn't

00:41:16--> 00:41:50

even today you commit a crime you go to you admit your crime, they're not gonna say to you, okay, you did a crime. Nevermind, we'll let you off this time. You've been you know, you're very, very nice of you to come and admit that you have stolen all this property and you were dealing in drugs and you did this, okay. Since you admitted it will lay you off. Now they'll say, okay, it's very nice of you to admit it. Instead of imprisoning you for 10 years, okay, we'll put you five years, but they're still going to punish you. But all this kind of interaction. But Allah Subhana Allah doesn't deal with you like that. If you come to Allah.

00:41:53--> 00:41:58

He's going to be happy. He's going to be happy for you to come back and you will open his doors wide

00:41:59--> 00:42:05

and he will not he will not admonish you for coming back. You don't make you feel guilty.

00:42:06--> 00:42:10

And that's why the Hadith the prophet SAW them said that Allah is more happy

00:42:11--> 00:42:18

for the repentance of any one of you than a person who has lost his camel in the middle of the desert.

00:42:19--> 00:42:30

And that camel has all these food and all his provisions and everything. And he lost that camel. And then he sat underneath a tree having

00:42:31--> 00:42:37

acknowledged and understood that I say he's gonna die because his camel is gone. He has no food, no water, anything

00:42:38--> 00:42:39

he has submitted to death.

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

But out of the blue,

00:42:43--> 00:42:44

the camel comes back.

00:42:45--> 00:42:51

See how happy is to see that camel back. So the prophesised himself Allah is more happy

00:42:52--> 00:43:04

than that person for the camel coming back. So when you are repent to Allah and Allah doesn't only accept you, but he is happy for you to come back because he wants you to come back. And he wants you to escape to him.

00:43:05--> 00:43:09

So that's number one. Toba repentance to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:43:10--> 00:43:12

And we should be repenting to Allah regularly.

00:43:13--> 00:43:22

We should doing so far regularly, the prophet SAW license it will lie any less stuff will allow while to relay philleo accelerometer data

00:43:24--> 00:43:31

by a lie repent to a lie to stick fart and I repent to alarm in a day more than 70 times and this is a prophet Salam It was a

00:43:33--> 00:43:38

second way of escaping the method of escaping to Allah subhana wa tada

00:43:40--> 00:43:47

is by doing the opposite of what the shavon wants you to do, the shavon wants you to be ungrateful.

00:43:49--> 00:43:59

So you have to be grateful. So you have to be you have to engage in Chicago. gratitude. And gratitude is so powerful. Because gratitude and sugar

00:44:00--> 00:44:16

is entails you acknowledging Allah Subhana Allah. And then you are acknowledging that Allah has given you the Nirvana, and then you working towards being grateful because when you are grateful to somebody, you don't just,

00:44:17--> 00:44:31

you know, you don't just just say thank you. I mean, you can say thank you, but that's not really you know, it's very, very humble way of being grateful. You know, a lot of today now, especially some, I think about somebody who's really done something really nice for you.

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

Okay, somebody has gone out of their way to do something for you. Yeah, I don't know somebody had a car and they, they gave you driving lessons. And then he passed it, you know, free driving lessons, use the car, made you pass exam, and then you're not going to sell Thank you very much. That was really nice. After you know, I spent half a year teaching you out if you're going to maybe buy them, you're going to buy them a gift.

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

You're going to when you see them, you're always going to be courteous, they come in, you can open the door for them, you can and you're going to do so much for them because you are, it's natural for you to be grateful to them in this regards.

00:45:14--> 00:45:18

So when you are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala, you're not just gonna say Alhamdulillah

00:45:20--> 00:45:43

you're going to work as well. So you're going to do, you're going to do the good deeds, you're going to increase your salary, you're going to increase your car, you're going to increase your citation, look around your car, your car, your charity, your deed, you're a man, you're going to be better to your parents, you're going to be better to the neighbors, you're going to be better to those relations around you, you're going to treat people nicely, you've got all these things you're going to do, because you're grateful to Allah.

00:45:45--> 00:45:56

And that is part of escaping to a loss panda when you are grateful, Allah will increase you. And part of the increase that Allah will give you an opportunity, then Allah will give you more protection.

00:45:57--> 00:45:59

And lastly, in

00:46:01--> 00:46:32

escaping to a loss pantalla method is with da, da, da, is something that is necessary. And by law here, we don't just mean asking Allah, Allah, it's turning to Allah. So really going to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because remember, if you're escaping something, you need to be going towards Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, pleading, and wanting him to give you that help and support.

00:46:33--> 00:46:50

So all the problems that you are facing in this life, remember Allah subhanaw taala because you know who Allah is, you know that Allah has the keys to all the, all the problems, he can open up things for you. You know that Allah owns everything.

00:46:52--> 00:47:03

He is the one who provides for you, and He is the one who will give you He's the one who will remove. If you're feeling distressed, you're feeling depressed. You're feeling down. Allah is the one who can relieve you.

00:47:04--> 00:47:19

You're short of money Allah is the one will give you. You feeling afraid Allah is the one who will give you security, a man or woman Hope you're feeling you need something Allah will give you that's the source will be you have to turn to Allah Subhana Allah

00:47:20--> 00:47:42

and that entails that you make do and that's why drop is a bad drywall a bad it's a bad because it's the it's a prominent way of acknowledging who you are. Remember you need to know who you are. And you need to know who Allah is. When you know who you are. And you know who Allah is, then you become you can become the true faqeer

00:47:43--> 00:48:15

the one who is in need of a loss of habitat. Yeah you are ness and Doman. fukuhara illa Allah you are the ones who are in need you are the ones who are poor, you are the ones who are poverty, impoverished, and Allah Wa Allahu Allah. Mohammed Allah is no one who is self sufficient. Allah doesn't need you. But he's Hamid, deserving of praise and he gives praise. So you know who you are, you know who are lies. And so therefore your ask Allah Subhana Allah helped me

00:48:16--> 00:48:21

to be la mina shaytani r Rajim is a form of law, you're seeking help from a law against the shavon.

00:48:23--> 00:48:25

And to make that part of your

00:48:27--> 00:48:29

day to day, you know, practice.

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

It's not just our ability to say I want to read foreign but you should be seeking refuge to Allah in every aspects of your, your, your life, to seek help from a loss mentor. That's why when you look again, Allah subhanaw taala has taught us how to seek help from the shaman.

00:48:49--> 00:49:00

When you enter your house and you say, Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu, the shavon, Gazelle doesn't stay in the house, when you start to eat and you say Bismillah the Shabbat doesn't eat with you.

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

Because you have said Bismillah you have mentioned the name of Allah

00:49:05--> 00:49:28

and so on and so forth. So it is teaching yourself to seek refuge of Allah from the shavon you seek refuge, Allah will give you a refuge, you see, and that's a form of against seeking refuge and against all these other things that we mentioned before. And if you're in despair, you seek Allah withdraw. So that's a methodology of running and escaping to Allah subhanaw taala throughout.

00:49:29--> 00:49:39

And then you can open the Koran. And you can see the stories of all those people who run the world run towards Allah, they escaped to Allah subhanho wa Taala through

00:49:41--> 00:49:59

through asking Allah subhana wa tada because they know none will help them except Allah. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam when he was in the middle of the fire, he turned to Allah Subhana fulfill royal Allah He escaped to Allah and he turned to Allah and Allah changed the fire from being

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

Burning and hot and blazing, change it to becoming Barton was hella cool, safe.

00:50:09--> 00:50:15

And Ibrahim said he stayed in the fire. Some of the officers said he stayed in the area and he

00:50:16--> 00:50:17

good several days in the fire.

00:50:19--> 00:50:20

And he said

00:50:21--> 00:50:24

those were the best days I spent in my life in the fire.

00:50:26--> 00:50:38

moosari center escaping from Pharaoh and being surrounded by Brown and his army from the back and the sea is in front of him. He turns to Allah escaped.

00:50:40--> 00:50:55

Carlos howdy Musa in Alamo. dracoon the people with Moses flrs we've been caught, it's over. So Kela in America of visiting with me is Allah My Lord, He will guide us so he turned to Allah. So a lot changed

00:50:56--> 00:51:09

the reality of the ocean of the sea and split, so that it became like big mountain and they swapped in between miracles happening because Allah Subhana Allah because they tend to Allah,

00:51:10--> 00:51:17
