sister said we have four enemies. What's the difference between dunya desires and knifes?
We talked about this very briefly dunya means all the worldly life temptations, you know getting busy with anything that will take you from the same purpose that Allah subhanaw taala created you for. Allah created us for a purpose which is to worship him very easy. The words that Roberto What does it mean? I told you that we take words for granted. Right? What is the meaning of worship? You give me the translation? What's the meaning of worship? I want to worship Allah. You know, people talk about taqwa. What's the meaning of taqwa? to fear Allah? No, this is not the meaning. Allah is not here to scare us.
You said I'm saying and how can I attain taqwa? That's what we need to stop at. And this is the main purpose of the linguistic approach. We have to stop at every word and understand what it means we should Suppan Allah will hamdulillah La la la, la, la, la, la, you see lots of people all the time saying in sha Allah. And when it comes to the application in their life, do they apply? Do they understand what it means? Do they respect it? That's the question. So very, very quickly, what's the meaning of sipan Allah
Mashallah, I have two big ears, but I can listen to one at a time.
So who can say what's the meaning of spotlight? Yes.
Can you speak louder? Please?
Glory be to Allah. This is the translation. Okay?
Allah is without any imperfection. We're getting closer. So I'm asking about meaning not a translation. And listen, the first thing that comes to your mind is mostly all the time is there meaning or the translation? I know I'm looking for the deeper meaning.
There is no one deserving more glory than Allah. Okay, that's another edition.
Just take how Allah is far from everything that they associate with him. So Allah is far from imperfection, meaning that Allah subhanaw taala is perfect in his names, his attributes, his actions, but we are imperfect. You need to sleep Allah subhanaw taala neither sleep nor slumbers you know the meaning of slumber
like this when you're too tired like now, this is the meaning of slumber last night I said Latta who CNET on this the meaning of sin.
Okay, I know somebody reads it sooner.
Remember, Nextel and sciarra. The same concept.
I remember one time I was praying next to someone, and after he finished the prayer, he started, he started making like, khitomer Salah, and he went like this
And I said, What are you saying? He said, I'm saying Subhana Allah? Is it how long these days?
And I said no. What is the meaning of suppiler? Is it Subhana? Allah Subhana Allah
conserva here, like, do you have to philosophize everything, it's like so panela
and I said, I'm just asking to learn.
And he's like, I don't know. I just say Subhan Allah
subhanaw taala. So when you don't know the meaning, you just do it like this.
But when you understand the meaning, you will enjoy saying it, is what I'm saying. And this is exactly the same with the Quran. If you read the Quran, without understanding the meaning you will get nothing out of it. You will not enjoy the curar and this is a difference between us and Fatima delana when she said how short is the night to enjoy the company of Allah subhanaw taala she wanted to enjoy. It's the same with the professor Salaam. One night, one of the Sahaba said I saw like a trunk at the, you know, in the middle of the masjid and I know that there is no trunk there. And when he came close, he found the process of him standing there praying. He said I joined him. And in
the process of him started fat handling started, you know, so awful, Bukhara, and the Sahaba said, I said to myself, Sharla is going to make her go after the first 100 a, what's your explanation when the amount leads the prayer Sharla is going to make a call after the first day.
And if he goes into the second and third, like you know, that's too much.
So Pamela, and then the process lm continued until he finished it Bukhara.
And he started
and he said at the time because the order was not yet fixed. Okay, so he said the problem started, and I'm wrong. And he said to himself, he said, insha Allah, the prophet is going to make a quote after the first 100 a look at the expedition after the horrible Baccarat, Baccarat is almost to reduce. How long does it take? And the porcelain continued until he finished?
And he said and then he said, started he started alarma and then I said to myself, inshallah is gonna make a call after the first 100 a and then the professor
Finished. So if you were in the shoes of the Sahaba, what would he do? He said for him to be amerind soup. I started to think about something bad. What was it?
To sit down while the professor Solomon was praying because he was too tired, and he's much younger than the professor. You see the difference? What would what would make the hilum do this? Because he is
reflecting on the meaning and enjoying the Salah. What's the meaning of Salah, especial spiritual connection with Allah until we understand that meaning, we will never appreciate the Salah, and will always feel terrible about praying.
So Allah subhanaw taala created us for a purpose, which is a better What's the meaning of a better? Allah said, everything that you do. That's good to please Allah subhana wa Taala what is whether it is something that you say something that you do, whether it's something internal or external.
So can you give me an example, if you are walking in the street and you see something that would
stop the people of the way, the way of the people like something that they might stumble in, like, you know, just take this and throw it away? This is an act of worship.
When you smile, this is an act of charity.
When you be kind to your parents, this is an act of worship. In fact, this is the second most beloved act of worship in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala after tawheed
15 times in the Quran, Allah said Waka darbuka Allah tabula Yeah, and the next meaning is what will ye Dania Sunnah and be kind to your parents, after monotheism?
being good to neighbors, whether they're Muslims or non Muslims? Is this an act of worship? Yes, it is.
But most people think that when we say worship, it is Salah. Zakah so yom Hajj, and Shahada, right, it's not the rituals.
And let me continue the study that I didn't finish yesterday. Remember the story of the professor Selim?
When he was walking and he helped the old woman, Sao Paulo and they reached home she said, Young man, I don't have anything to
reward you except one piece of advice. There is a very dangerous man.
And this man is causing division within every family in Christ. Now in Mecca. This man is ripping families apart is causing so much fitna in the community. Be aware of him, his name is Mohammed.
And in the process, salaam smile.
So I am Mohammed. She took Shahada on the spot. Why did the porcelain talk to her about Islam? Or did he act as a Muslim? What does the Muslim community today to live Islam, just live Islam be a Muslim?
Okay, the difference between dunya desires, and nefs I think I explained this, but let me just do it quickly. Do not, don't be busy with anything that Allah subhanaw taala has created for you in this dunya and be busy with the, with the purpose that we're lucky to do for which is to worship Him and explain the meaning of worship.
desires, and this is really relevant to what we will talk about inshallah, like if you look at any human being, he has four desires, from the top here to the bottom.
Allah Subhana, Allah has given you a brain looking for knowledge. And we talked about two types of knowledge, useful knowledge and useless knowledge, right. And there is a heart, this is the place for love you Love and hate. And then there is another desire for food. And there is a sexual desire. The strongest one of them is the sexual desire. And this one will talk a lot about, you know, in brothel, it is the woman, the wife of a disease. So these are the desires, if you maintain balance, like we as Muslims, we should, we should seek knowledge which knowledge, knowledge that will benefit you in this life and in the second life.
And the only knowledge that would benefit you in both lives is the knowledge about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Does this mean that we shouldn't seek human sciences? No, we should, because we need it in this life. But don't forget that the most important knowledge is that you know, where, why you're here. Well, what are you hitting for? What is your final destination?
And shaitan comes to you always through the four desires, and he would like to try to take you to an extreme.
So go to an extreme when it comes to knowledge, some people would say, I don't want any knowledge. You know, I would love to be ignorant on my life. This is one extreme. And this is why a lot of what I said while about Lean, right? Those who are still in life, they don't seek knowledge.
The other extreme is I'm going to seek knowledge, but that which is not useful to me. These are the two extremes. So you should seek knowledge which is beneficial to you. This is the moderation and this is the correct person.
This oma Waka delicata nakum mattawa. Sapa thus we have made you an omen of moderation.
When it comes to love and hate, who should be the love number one in your heart?
Allah go back and study inshallah I am number 24 sorta tober. So number nine, it tells you exactly that this heart can have room for 11 loves, but go there inshallah and study what's the right or the who should be number one who should be number two and check that in your real life today.
When it comes to food, do we live to eat or do we eat to live?
Write it down and think about it. Some people live to eat but others Eat to Live. Okay, so write this down and think about it.
And this will tell you the motivation.
And of course, the sexual desire Allah subhanaw taala told us there is only one legal relationship between man and women, which is
Okay, another question was, after you have finished your period, can you engage in sexual intercourse before you have done was to clean yourself? The Ayah number two to insert on number two, you can forget that right? It's very easy. So source number two Al Baqarah and di is number two to two. Okay, Allah subhanaw taala said, this is exactly the question. Where's Luna Canyon? they asked you about the menses. Okay.
Cool. Hua Asan fast as I fill my head, this is something harmful, so fast as the film is, it means when the question was posed to the professor sallam, he said, the man can, you know enjoy his wife physically, except the sexual intercourse during that period. Why? Because the Jews used to live away from their wives during that time.
And this is why they were upset when they heard the saying this like we never imitate them.
Then Allah subhanaw taala said fat so don't miss that I feel my head had to horn and again, the language will play a very important role here for either the horn to hone them in heifer America Mala. There's a difference between your tour this is something that can be attributed to Allah subhanho wa Taala, meaning when it's the end of the period when it's the end of the menses, and this comes from Allah subhanaw taala. For some woman six days for others eight days, sometimes it goes to 10 days, it depends. So who causes that to stop it's only Allah and this is the verb to pour, because it comes from Allah for either for harm then Allah subhanaw taala added just one letter
which gives the difference in meaning when they purify themselves meaning when they take the hose
when they take the shower. So there are two steps here, when the period ends, this is from Allah, this is the you know your tone, but for either Tata Han, so this is the condition once they purify themselves by taking the shower or the person to whom them in Haifa, Morocco, Allah, then now you know, it's helpful for both of you to have the sexual intercourse. And then this you know, the end of this verse is very beautiful upon Allah, Who wants Allah subhanaw taala to love him.
That's the end of this is upon Allah.
So when the person will have the verse, and purify himself or herself, Allah saying in Allah, that's the end of the verse, you have been for you have been matahari Indeed, Allah Subhana Allah loves those who turn back independence to him constantly and he loves those who purify themselves constantly.
So, even taking the shower itself is a reason for Allah subhanaw taala to love you.
What level of family interaction is permissible between my my husband and my sister? Should family dinners be separated? Of course they must be separated.
There is no relationship between your husband and your sister. Because the professor Selim was asked this question he was asking.
In fact, he was warning he said he Yakumo the whole island he said, Do not enter a house, you know where there is a woman like, you know, staying by herself. And in the process, lm said, was asked by one of the answer. He said, For I tell him we are a pseudo law. If I'm if it's like, this is one example. He said, What about like the brother of my husband? That's That was the question.
Then the professor Selim said Alhamdulillah, Mount Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah mode, meaning this is easier in such a situation, then that person to go in the absence of his brother, meaning if my brother comes to visit me in my absence, and I'm not at home and my wife is alone, he is not permitted at all to to come into the house.
And that's what the prophet Salim said and there are lots of stories Subhanallah of adultery and fornication because of this, and why would the Selim say this because when
When your brother or my brother comes to my house, nobody will have doubt. I'm not saying I'm not trusting my wife or I'm not trusting my brother. But so panela in our Sharia prevention is better than pure. It could be a case, one in million, but Islam wants to protect us from having this. And will let him that is a man who call the safe and sorry, there is a woman who called you safe. And she asked him this question. She said, I'm pregnant, from the brother of my husband, and I love him more than my husband. Now, what should I do? And I said, sada Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I said, This is why the prophets Allah mentioned this hadith. Prevention is better than cure. would this
happen every day? No. But can it happen? Yes, Islam says prevention is better than cure.
Why? Because she explained the story. She said, he came the first day, and my husband was outside. And like I said, Oh, you're welcome. We don't respect the sooner the processor. Know, if, if somebody comes in, you're alone, you should just answer from behind the door. Who is it? So on? So you know, I'm sorry, look, you know, your brother is not here.
That's it. If you have your children who are all Yes, you can come that's no problem. But if you're alone, he's not he's not permitted. It shouldn't be allowed. Somebody might say he's traveling, he's coming from another country. The scholar said, you can go and stay with your neighbor, and allow him in the house, but you can be with him behind the closed door alone. Because the problem said, layer
11, kind of shaitana
a man and a woman would be behind a closed door together. shaitan would be the third. And that's true.
So the woman said he came the first time. And then you know, she allows him she made empty. Second time. He did it in purpose. He came earlier. And it's a parallel she had daughters who were in the secondary school or the high school. So he came in, and like he started like, you know, the, the the VCR there was no DVD at the time.
And so panela the daughters like they were having pornography.
So he started watching this by the time she you know, she brought him the tea, and they felt weak. And so panela they did it.
And then she's saying to the chef, I love him more now than my husband and she's pregnant from him. How can we solve this problem?
What happened? We didn't obey the prophets of Allah. Allah will law he any problem in this oma today, it's because we violate one idea or one has any problem in the oma today.
So this is why Yes, there should be separated, and Subhanallah it becomes very easy. And this is how I do it with my friends. If they are not those, you know, much practicing Islam, I would make sure that I invite them first to my house. So when they come, I will just go down when they come because we live in Cairo in the seventh floor. Okay, so once I see the car downstairs, I will just go down. And I would say, I would welcome demand, keep him busy with me. And I would ask him to have his wife or any females just to go and my wife will receive them, take them inside. And then we go after that we sit together and they sit together, they will feel comfortable together. But you know what
happens? If it's mixed? You sit down there, everybody behaves the best right? When they're mixing.
I mean, the man would be very abusive to his wife when they are alone in his house. But suppiler in front of people when there is dinner or something. He will be the most delicate man. Like, excuse me, honey, can you bring me this?
And if you're here, like if you hear the sister talking in her house, you know, you can say whether it's the man or the woman talking. But Cipolla during that dinner, which is mixed is going to be much alike. You can even hear her speaking.
You said I'm saying and this is why shaitan will come in so the men will be looking at the other woman is gonna say Mashallah, he's married to an angel.
And he will come to the other and it's like, you know, O'Shea? Look at his wife, Mashallah. She's very, she's very, you know, respectable to her husband. Look at the way she talks to him. She's even whispering.
You see what I'm saying? And then shaitan comes in. It's exactly like somebody who brings the TV and he starts watching movie and his wife sitting next to him. You know what happens? shaitaan comes because the man, you think when when a man is watching the movie, is he going to concentrate on the men?
You know what happens? This is exactly what happens is going to be the
right? He's comparing. Right? He's bringing shaitan in his house. You know, maybe his wife was very beautiful, and his body was the best before marriage and before, you know, delivering five babies for him.
Now she put up some way.
And so Paula, have you ever seen the star in the movie? She's an ugly woman.
You see what I'm saying? So that's exactly what happens to the man is going to start comparing
And then he wouldn't be like it wouldn't be happy with you. And Cipolla, this comparison. You know, it happens inside him, he's not going to talk to you. But sometimes you will hear a remark here, there's like, you know, what about just going to the gym inshallah
and this offense the wife so much, right?
So stay away from this because it's causing lots of problems.
A sister is asking, she said, For women, sometimes we feel conflicted, you know, between our roles, like learning the deen and taking care of our families and homes. So how can we
Remember something, there are two stories but like, I don't have time to go through them in detail. But I would advise you to listen to one of the beautiful hotbeds of chef Mohammed Sharif.
And he started the whole power the Hadith
that happened between
selling manual pharmacy, and, and I would
like sell man that pharmacy went to visit our doctor and he was not there. And this was like the before the eyes of hijab and the wife of our that was not you know, in clean clothes and she didn't take care of her appearance and she's like, you know, worried about her that she's like he's outside it's like you know, why didn't you take care of yourself like you know, but that that is a very busy man he doesn't care about this.
So at that point of time, and like a conclusion from this Heidi besides another hobby
that that's about Abdullah have normative loss. He was one of the most devout worshippers and he was very much Allah very strict.
To the degree that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked his wife when he met it, and he said, like, you know, how is Abdullah said he's one of the best devout worshippers and sometimes women would be shy to say exactly what's going on. So they would say it in a way that only like, you know, very smart people would understand it.
So when she said this, when she said this, the prophets of Allah and SLM he realized that, like he gives so much time to do a better and it doesn't give quality time for his wife. And she's like, you know what, I can hold a chroma key. No, he doesn't have time for us.
And this is when the professor Selim said in the little bit garlic haka, we're in the labor danika like a haka. We're in a Haleakala haka Fulani, Hakan, meaning that you have a duty upon you towards Allah subhanho wa Taala there is a duty upon you.
Again, due to your family, and there is a duty upon you towards your body, you have to rest so give each one is due right. And I'll give you the example of how the professor lamb, you know, advised Abdullayev nom
and in the meantime, he advised Abdullah Hefner Omar Abdullah of nominees Abdullayev number of the loss of the Ladner Omar Abdullah and Homer is of the lab.
When he was asked about the Vietnam War, he said, He's a very good person, but I wish he could do Korean wildlife. This was a hint from the processor and increase your level of very bad. But without the Vietnam it was the opposite way. His wife was complaining that he doesn't spend quality time with her. And I know lots of the brothers, once they become Mashallah into the tower. like you'd be spending the whole day and night outside. And he goes home and he's married. He's always gonna say, we'll come back he's gonna say where's the bed and he'll just be dead in the bed. She's waiting for him the whole night and like, she like you have to spend some quality time with is like an ambition.
You can do that. You can take it to an extreme in one area and leave like something that Allah subhanaw taala made obligatory on you, like your wife has a right on you.
And listen to this life story of the lab number of us.
Usually it's the sooner on the wedding day.
And then when your wife is with you.
And it's the first night that you both of you have although and you put your head on her forehead here, and you make a lot of money as alcohol Haha, well hieromartyr belta ally, we're about to become in Sharia or shatter image of alcoholic and then you pray to rockers. And then you lead here in the in the prayer. How long should be the total hours?
Two hours. I'm saying this is the first month in a marriage right? You know what our beloved nama did?
His wife said he read the whole Quran.
So he finished. He finished the Torah by the Federal cabinet like almost one hour before fudger
in the wedding night.
like of course his wife expected him to say Hola, Hola, hola. Allahu Akbar.
You wouldn't even finish the class. What do you see this is like this is a story about our
class to show you and so we have to have the balance in our life.
suppiler these are Sahaba. And the problem was teaching them. Okay, so we should learn from this. You know the balance, you need to learn about your deen, you need to take care of your kids, you need to take care of your
issue. He said, he said Why? I didn't hear a brother saying your husband.
And this tells me something.
Should I continue saying what is that thing?
The brothers are smiling. They got the message.
Don't have to reprimand them more.
Now, they are very smart. They understand just by the signal. Okay, so we need to understand this. It's very important to give your family a quality time. It's very important. They need that and they have the right to them. What? How do you deal with people who praise you for your good deeds? This is a very critical issue. The Prophet Salam told us this, and sometimes people again will be very harsh. Men livescore in flashscore, Lazarus origin, meaning if you don't thank people who don't think Allah subhanaw taala if somebody thank you for something out of gratitude, there is nothing wrong with this, but he shouldn't be praising you too much in your presence. In fact, you know, a
Muslim shouldn't feel comfortable when somebody is praising Him in His presence, you can say this behind his back. And do not exaggerate.
But if somebody Thank you, there is nothing, there is nothing wrong. You don't say like, Oh, this is rockin stop that don't do it. This is too much. Don't embarrass him. He's just showing his gratitude, or she's showing her gratitude. Okay, the problem is, if you are expecting that phrase, and if it doesn't happen, it's like, you know, look at them. They're not saying thank you to me. Because when we do what we do, we do it to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I was given an example. You know, I said, like, if you're walking in the street, and somebody is carrying too heavy bags, and you rush to them, and say, Can I help you? Yeah. And then you carry the bag and escort
them to the house. And then once upon a lie, because they are tired, they would just take the bags inside, and you just lock the door, and you stand there in front of those, like, you know, how rude are you?
She didn't even say thank you to me.
Or he didn't even thank me. Like, did you do this? Waiting for thanking? Or did you do this waiting for the reward from Allah? subhanaw taala. But if the person Thank you, that's fine. There's no d? Don't say like, you know, no, in Islam, you're not supposed to take me that's wrong.
What if you want to teach and you feel too ignorant or scared?
I I, I think as far as I understand the question, it means like, you know, you want to teach people Islam, right? As far as I'm concerned here. So if it means you want to make that offer to people, don't be scared because you're ignorant because this shaitan playing games with you. Or because you're scared, you can do that, if you understand what I'm going to say now, there are two types
that are by walking and dial by talking.
Not everyone can do Tao by talking. And we prove that to the brothers today. inshallah, next time, we're going to prove it to the sister.
And I think it was just that I did a good job with that, like, I don't know, like the topic that she was covering. But what we did we did with the brothers that we asked them to come and give a football.
So imagine somebody brings you on the spot and asked you to be here on the stage now and talk. You think it's very easy. What's the problem? gonna stand there? I'm gonna smash them.
Do you think it's that easy?
You see what I'm saying? So so panela it's very difficult.
It takes knowledge, it takes courage, it takes experience things, lots of, of you know, so not everybody is good at speaking. But we're lucky the scholar said, the hour by walking is more influential than thou by talking. Did I give you an example? Yes, the story that I shared with you about the process and
how Islam we know how Islam was taken to Indonesia, how Islam was taken to India, how is Islam taken to China by the behavior of the Muslims that they talk to them about Islam? No. They were very honest. They were very hospitable. And people started asking them, what are you doing? What do you do this? Is it like we of course, were Muslim. What's Islam? And this is going to be the answer to another question. My sister sent me a question he said, one of the professors told them at the university that Islam doesn't mean submission. Otherwise, it would mean surrender. I mean, what playing games with words, let's go back to the to the root of the word Islam. What's the root of the
word Islam? Sadly, man, that's the route right? Salima, if you put them together, it means to be safe or to be secure. If you bring other derivatives of the word Salima it would be Salah, which means peace. If you bring more derivatives to be Salaam, sorry, Islam and Islam, and Islam means submission. And Islam means surrender. That's the linguistic meaning. But what's the technical meaning? The technical meaning is that you surrender and submit yourself to the will of Allah subhanaw taala because he's your Creator unto him, you will return and he showed you
How to end up your journey safely in paradise. Do we have an eternal journey coming soon inshallah.
He's busy, and he's preparing for the turn of the journey anyway.
So this is my question like, it means technically submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It doesn't mean just submission or surrender. Okay, this is where the word Islam comes from. And so part of life you look at the other derivatives, if you submit to the will of Allah Subhana Allah, this will bring about two types of peace in your life, inner peace, and outer peace. Inner Peace is the peace of the heart and the peace of the mind. How many of you now have the peace of the heart and the peace of the mind when you are in a gathering like this? How many of you can you have this outside here?
Imagine yourself now. Well, yeah, the will okay that you are in a bar, would you have you know, this piece here? You will hear no swearing and bad language, right? So panela
this is inner peace. Inner Peace means like you are secured because you feel secure because you know your destination.
Right? And I remember like my mother, may Allah subhanaw taala give her a long life. She used to do to say no to give me this when I was young, and I never understood it. She used to say, I have never been a
bad luck. We have a fake Hello. This is typically an Egyptian dialect. Which means May Allah subhanaw taala give you the peace of the heart and the peace of the mind. And may Allah subhanaw taala make all the people love you. And when I was younger, I said like, why should all the people love me? I just need one woman.
And may Allah give you the peace of the heart? Is it like what's wrong with my heart?
So panela when you become older, and you realize what it means. I mean, I mean, what llahi I, every time I see him, I kiss her hand and a kiss. And I say thank you so much, because I can see it in my life. That Allah subhanaw taala accepted her.
That handler, my, my biggest pride in this life is that I'm a Muslim. And this is the source of my peace of the heart and peace of mind. I think all of you would share this with me, right?
If I asked you now, to ride with me a bus now I'm going to be the lousy driver.
And then I know nothing about what's the nearest city here, Scarborough, Scarborough.
This is called Mississauga, right? So Toronto would be like, let's say that the nearest city, okay? So I'm going to start driving, and somebody is going to say we're going to turn to and say like, Great, let's go. And then I start driving. And then the first traffic light, I'm going to stop. And then I'm going to ask everybody, should we go right? Straight, or go back?
And nobody knows the directions.
So somebody is gonna say, You are the chef. You're the Baraka. Just try something. You know what? Right is good. The rep said I'm used to like, right? Let's go right?
This is no barking that you should know where you're going. And then I'm going to say okay, let's follow the Baraka and we go right, let me ask you a question, the more we will drive would you feel secure?
You have doubts why we are not sure whether we're going to the towards the destination or not. Right. And then we'll keep going until we end up in a desert Do we have this up here?
Okay, we'll go to the mountains or whatever. And then once we are there, somebody is going to say one of the sisters that will hold that she said like so panela our name is Buddha guidance. You should have asked us for the map
and then we're going to ask the sister Where should we go so that you know you know if you go straight for the straight path that will take you to Toronto? So we go back to the traffic light and keep going straight.
This is another Baraka way okay? And then we keep going and going until we end up in the river.
Again, we are lost. Do you feel secure still You're lucky your concern. Okay, let's go back one of the brothers gonna say you know what, I feel if we go left inshallah, that's the way and then we go left, it doesn't work, we end up in a lake.
And then someone's gonna you know what, we have to go back. It's the other way. And we go back, we end up in the ocean.
So my question to you if you don't know your destination,
would you have the peace of the heart and the peace of the mind Alhamdulillah for Islam, we know our destination. What's our final destination in the eternal journey?
Jana insha Allah, same Salah mean it from the heart, same Salah.
Because you have one of the art, you know, famous comedians in the Arabic literature. One time he was going to the market, he wanted to buy a cow and they asked him, where are you going? He said, I'm going to buy a cow. They said say inshallah, I said why? Have lots of money here and there are lots of cows in the market.
And then he went to the market he came back and there was no cow they asked him, where's the cow? He said the money stolen inshallah.
Sometimes we use insha Allah in that sense, you know?
So I'm gonna tell the sister who asked this question I'm scared to give Dawa. I'm gonna say, listen, Tao by walking, meaning just live, live Islam at you know, apply Islam as a way of life. Because this is the best way that people will accept Islam. And let me just end up with this question. I would just leave you to think about it. What was the degree that abubaker the law and get
when he started making Tao? Did he get a PhD or a Master's?
Master's would be a
no, it was only one week after he listened to the process Allah and Allah Subhana Allah guided him to guide six amongst the 10 promised paradise while still they were walking on Earth. Six days of listening to the Prophet sallallahu how much knowledge
how many verses of the Quran were revealed in six days?
You see what I'm saying? So is it by knowledge? If the person is saying I'm ignorant, like invite people to that what you know, the hospital but this is now be honest, this is our
be forgiving This is our It doesn't mean that you have to go and say, Okay, let me give you a fat one. This is Mashallah, we are very good at that.
Right? No, you don't have to give fat to just share Islam with the people by the way you behave because they will start asking you how many times your name was mo at work.
And Subhanallah when you came and he took one of his
classes, and then you went to, you know, to the work and so like, my name is Mohammed, I'm not more anymore.
If you're, you know, I'm, I'm proud to be a Muslim, because I know how important Islam is in my life. And so panela then you started praying, you were scared to pray at work now we started praying, you know how the people would look at you at work will not hit they will respect you. And I know many of the brothers after I advised them to pray at work. They would come to me and say, well, not you're right, because my employer comes to me now and say, Mohammed, isn't it time for prayer?
ashamed go and pray because he respects you because you respect your day, but if you don't respect your date, he has no respect for you.
Oh, this is a question for me. Personally, what days and timings as your holiday is in Vancouver. You're welcome inshallah to come and attend. It's a it's in Friday between Europe and Asia, but mother Venetia there now is between 10 to 1130 I hope you can make it inshallah.
We're going to move with inshallah, to serve between seven to nine. But there are other things that I do at the university I give a holla at the UPC on Tuesday and halaqa at this view on what is the
can we pray behind a person that his reciting of the Quran is poor. If he can recite Al Fatiha properly?
You can pray behind him but if there is someone else in the congregation who can resize better than him he should be the one resizing because the prop salon when he said the conditions for reading the Salah, he said yo mo Poma, Accra home
and Accra home the scholars have felt they disagreed. Is it a trial meaning the one who is the best resizer it doesn't come it's not it doesn't have to do to do with the voice although the voice would be inspiring for people but it means the person who is more memorizing because the Sahaba who memorized the Quran were called also the Pura and also the how far so if somebody you know if both of them are the same when it comes to memorization, so the one who recites better than the other and the one who has like you know, a more inspiring voice because people will reflect more inshallah in the Salah.
And then the second condition, it's not age is not age was the second condition.
After whom, the one who has more because sometimes you might memorize the Quran, but you don't understand what you're memorizing. So here will be the difference in Sharla.
Okay, I'm going to start with the questions here and go back to Socrates.
Okay, we stopped last time at what hour that will lead to a fee by epsa. He was a Lakota word. We'll call it italic
we stopped at was a Lakota Ababa who said Allah subhanaw taala didn't say what he said was a leopard, which is sort of mobile and the Arabic language meaning she severely bolted and not one door and more than one door, I will share the story of Murali under the right. And we'll call it title and meaning. I'm ready for you now come so she's inviting
What was the first reaction of Yusuf Ali Salaam?
He said, masala. And there's a difference between what I said Arabic, also Billa and masala. What's the difference? I will do belaire means and this is what you will find in the translation which is not again accurate. I seek refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala This is our go below. But mahad Allah, meaning Allah is my resort, as if he say, you know, when we say and in fact the half year Can I would you alone we worship, we don't say we worship you alone. And there is of course there is there is a reason for the inversion here in the in the language, meaning he's resorting to Allah first because it's a prime now, Oh Allah, I'm a human being. Yes, I'm a prophet. And I'm impeccable.
I'm infallible, but I'm a human being still. And this woman is beautiful. She's my mistress army and man. I'm very you know, I'm a very powerful man. And she's commanding me and I'm a maid. She's free, and I'm a slave. Now a lot, you are my refuge protect me.
And the big question that we will answer tonight is did use him. What's the meaning of him that we have here?
It's the next verse what Allah subhanaw taala said while at the hem at V wahama.
It's here. And indeed, she did desire him.
So the big question that we'll answer tonight is did use of bizarre hair, and was he at the same level of her desire? And I'm going to give you inshallah, more than 15 evidence that use of did not do that. And so we will count them together in Sharla. Okay, but before we go there, I would like to share my story, too. So the jealousy of Isla de la Anna, when she heard like about our Villa or Mandala
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was married. And there are two narrations, they say it's like she was the daughter of a king. And another generation said she was a beautiful woman, but she was very beautiful. And when I showed the law on her, saw her, she was very jealous. She said, Oh, may Allah May the Prophet Selim would love her more. So she went to her and she told her this. She said, I'm going to teach you a statement that the prophets of Salaam loves so much. Once you see him, say to him, he would love you so much.
And who would reject a piece of advice that will make your husband love you more? And whose husband who is the husband is the prophets of Allah, Allah? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went to her and he said, when you see the prophet SAW Selim, say, although below him Inc.
I seek refuge with Allah subhanaw taala from you. And because she was like an A young woman, so can Allah, the prophet SAW Selim went there, and he knocked on the door, she opened the door and she said, I want to be let him think. She thought that it's something nice.
And the Selim said, Lakota star, they'd be happy, they,
like you so creepy, like he sought refuge with someone who deserves to be sold, go to your family. And the problem didn't consummate the marriage with her.
So, this is the meaning of our rubella I seek refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So before we move to this, he said in Europe, b, x and y. Now let me ask you a question.
This is the word in Arabic. He said Carla madala. He said, Allah is my refuge. Then he said in Who? They said the hair here. It is him. The here is a pronoun. It is him. Okay. Robbie, my Lord, Asana mathway, meaning
he gave me good lodging. He treated me well, you remember when he told his wife a creamy mouthwash? be hospitable to him? treat him well. So who is the Lord here? Who is the word drop here? Is it
al Aziz? Or is it Allah subhana wa Taala.
There are two opinions. One opinion said he said right away because he said my as a law and right away Is it enough meaning it is a loss upon our data, my Lord, who caused me to come to this house, so it's the guys that have Allah subhanaw taala after he saved me from the world now ended up in the house of a disease. That's one opinion. Okay. And again, this is this is the miraculous nature of the Arabic language I told you before, remember the day before yesterday, that the Prophet Allah may get upset of the whole Quran?
No. Okay. This is why we can
To stand in two ways, the other opinion that says the hair here in him, it is Him, who is my Lord. It refers to
Al Aziz. And the evidence that they gave is if you go back a little bit, you remember when al Aziz told his wife, a creamy mess were the same words, the same words, if you go back, and as he's told his wife, he said, a creamy mouthwash, meaning, be hospitable to him, give him a good lodging, treat him well. So they said, it means that it is my lord figuratively, you remember when I told you the word drop figuratively could be used with human beings, when we say an Arabic language, Rob but also because the word drop means the one who brings about something out of non existence and he provides for that thing and Allah Subhana Allah created us out of nothing, and he provides for us right so
here's our rub. But figuratively speaking, when a man marries in Islam, he is the one everybody will explain the word karma, he is the maintainer, and protector of the woman. So he provides his obligated financially, to provide for all of their needs, right. So he, look he made the family out of nothing. And he provides so figuratively we say, who is, is the Lord of the family? What if the woman is the one who provides we say, are up but she is Roboto. So we can use it for the man or the woman, whoever provides for the family. So this is why figuratively they said, he is referring here also, he could be referring to Allah Aziz. In the hood up here, it means it is Aziz srms. Why,
again, he made me living in a great comfort as we said before, it was hospitable to me, he gave me a good lodging. And then he said, in the whole life of Bali moon,
the volley moon will never be successful will never prosper. What does this mean? Does the word dolla moon here has the same meaning that I explained to you before? I told you before, Rome is degrees, right? The highest of which is and the evidence says you have to select villa in the sherkin lava monaldi does the word Bali moon here means we should record this believers. It's another degree it means if your husband was hospitable to me, and he gave me good living, comfortable living, should I betray him with you? I will be unfair. That's the meaning of alimony here. Or if the word rugby refers to Allah subhana wa Tada. If Allah saved me from the world, and he
guided me to the house of Allah Aziz, and he gave me a good living, should I betray the Amana? And, you know, make Zina or be a fornicator or an adulterer. Again, this is against the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. So I will be unfair to myself when it comes to my relationship with Allah subhana wa. Okay.
So write down the first evidence that Yusuf Alayhi Salaam did not have the same desire that the wife of Lazarus has. It's the fact that rajwada domains she tried many times before.
implicitly, and it didn't work.
But now explicitly, she said, Hey,
I'm ready. Come to me now.
What was the answer? Did he think for a minute? Did he take a second to think?
He said, No, he had a law which means, you know, he fears a loss of Hannah Montana, a loss in his heart. The fear of Allah subhanaw taala is in his heart, his coaches Allah subhanaw taala can see him
and this again, tells you something.
You remember when we talked about the Day of Judgment, we said it will be a very difficult day. And if you want to know the full description of what will happen in the Day of Judgment, join
the turtle journey inshallah, because we'll talk in detail about this. But again,
the Prophet Solomon had his shift in the way that he talks about intercession and judgment. He said, that new Shem Summa Rasul Allah Katana mean, the sun will be close to us. He said kodra mean, the distance of meal. You know how how far the sun is from us now? 93 million miles, you know, how long is the mile?
It is 1.6 kilometer. So can you imagine the number? And so finally yesterday, you know, we turned on
the air conditioning, it's 93 million miles. The problem said it will be just one mile away and the Day of Judgment.
And so Pinilla the narrator of the Hadith or the reporter of the hustle Sahabi said, Landry, who was a meal meal and who will be the lead actor helping him Ah, the word meal in the Arabic language could mean two things. It could mean mile and it could mean the mascara
My thing is quickly, you know the thing that the woman used to put
Did you hear that?
This should be the gift in shalonda wedding, okay?
That's the meaning of that. It's that long so Pinilla does the word mean in the Arabic language? The processor said the sun will be up to here. Can you imagine that?
And so upon Allah, the prophet Salim said, Min nnamani avaliable hora ala cabaye woman Amaya blah blah, with a woman nominee of La La Jolla woman in Germany with Gemma, Gemma some people, their sweat will be up to their ankles, other to their knees to their waists, to their necks, some people would be drowning in their sweat because of
their sins. But look at the other picture, there is always a good picture. So baton is a little more Luffy Julio mala, a level seven categories of people would be under the shade of Allah subhanaw taala, on the day of judgment, when there will be no shade except the shade of the throne of Allah subhana wa Taala. One of them is someone like us. And this is why I'm putting this Howdy, Roger on one of them. I was doing that from raw data to Monster bewafa pilot in a half an hour, a man was seduced by a woman. And she said come and it's exactly what you said. He said, I feel a lot novela
and another Hadith that you all know, you know, the three people who are going outside and they went into a cave and Allah subhanaw taala moved one of the rocks, and it blocked the cave. So the three of them and this is why we can say you can do tawassul you can big Allah Subhana Allah by virtue of the good deeds that you have done in this life. And this is the evidence from the sooner. So the three men who were blocked in the cave, one of them again was like Yusuf Ali salam, he said, Oh Allah, you know that there was a cousin of mine, and she needed money. And she came to me, and I told her, I'll give you the money on one condition that I would sleep with you.
And when I was there, and I was sleeping with her, she said, feed Allah subhana wa Taala don't do that. Then I walked away from here because I feel you Allah, if I have done this, because of your fear, and only to please you Allah, you know, relief us from this cave. So Allah subhanaw taala move the rock in a way that will not give them full passage to get out until the other to us the loss of panatela by virtue of the good deeds that they have done, then Allah subhanaw taala you know, remove the rock and they were saved from the cave. So again, this is another example. So what is the what's the gem that we derive from here?
If you are in such a situation, remember that Allah subhanaw taala can see you because the peroxyl himself is in his journey in his new home.
When a person commits adultery, you know his Eman? They said his Eman is taken away from him until he finishes and then if he repents to Allah subhanaw taala is the man comes back to him. You know why? Because the professor said in that Hudis last asahina subpar moment, even the person who needs steals. He's not a believer, because his belief is taken away from him. What does this mean? Let me give you let me just act it. When somebody wants to steal What does he do? Look at me. He's gonna do like this.
Right? Nobody can see me.
He's denying What?
He's denying the existence follow that he can see him right. Okay, another one
might do this. When somebody wants to commit adultery, they will go in a place that they are not known. And they will try to hide in a dark place. Again, wherever you go, can you hide from Allah subhanaw taala. And this is why when a man came to me, he said, I want to disobey Allah subhanaw taala. And I don't want the angel here to write down what I'm doing. Whatever he said to him, take it off. He said, you can do this, if you can fulfill five conditions. He said Give them to me. He thought it's very easy. So the first condition go to any other Earth other than the Earth that belongs to Allah subhanaw taala and then disobeyed him there.
And he said, Where can I go?
And then he said, Give me the second condition, it might be easier. He said, find someone else who can provide for you reserve other than Allah subhanaw taala then disobeyed him.
He said, Who else will provide for me other than Allah? Give me the third condition. It might be easier. He said.
Go to a place where Allah subhana wa Taala can see you then this obey Him. Can you disobey Allah in the basement?
in a dark room? Allah can see you. Right.
And then he said, What can I do that? Give me the fourth condition that might be easier. He said, when the Angel of Death comes to you tell him I'm not coming.
I will not listen to you can you
He said give me the fifth condition that might be easier. He said, When the angels of torture on the Day of Judgment come to drive you and throw you in Hellfire, tell them I'm not coming with you. Can you challenge them? No, he said,
If you live in the earth of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you eat from the profession of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you know that Allah subhana wa Taala can see you everywhere. If you know that you can stop the angel of death, to take your soul when the time comes. If you know that you can't stop the angels of torture, to you know to drive you and throw you into alpha. How dare you disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala so the man made Toba and he died after a month. May Allah subhanaw taala give us Toba before they're
in the hole are you for the whole body more
than Allah subhanaw taala said
what occurred to him Maybe he will have maybe her
she desired him where's the evidence? Who can give me the evidence that she deserved him?
Give me the words are our that Oh, Mashallah.
You know what, I'm gonna
give all the candies to the sisters and then they can distribute. They're kind of mechanical. I'm gonna keep one for the brothers. And so
I'll keep them with you inshallah. And anytime somebody answers you just
give one back. Yeah.
So Rwanda to right.
Rwanda to and we said morava, like it has been gone for a long time and it was implicit. Now, she can't bear anymore. Yousuf is very good looking, is a young man. And she's been living him with it for a long time. Now, she said, I have to do it explicitly said hi Telecom. And he didn't respond. He said my other law and this is the first evidence that he did not have the same desire like here. That's the first evidence he said my other law right away. That's the first evidence. And then once he said what occurred to him might be Allah. Allah said, she deserved him. So she went towards him, and she wanted to force him into the act.
So the evidence is Radha two and hydralic. And the third one now, while I had him might be okay, but the evidence for yourself is now either law. That's number one. He said, Mandala that's number one. Okay. Then Allah subhanaw. taala said, well, him, maybe her Lola or Ravana. And this is the only way you can read it correctly in the Quran. You can never stop and say, well, I've heard him Maybe he will him maybe because if you say this way, it means that they were at the same level of the desire. But Allah subhanaw taala said, Lola, or Ravana. Robin, this is the second evidence in Arabic language and grammar. When we say Lola, they we say Arabic Lola to feed him, Tina loco, let me give
you this analogy. We have Lao and Lola and Arabic Now is equal to F, you know, after if there is like
conditional sentence, and then there is a result after that, right? If you come across somebody who's a loser, somebody who failed in the test, right? And you say, What happened to you? Like I failed? Why? If I started,
I would succeed. If I had started, I would have succeeded, right? So now when we say if what stopped him from succeeding?
Studying, he didn't study, because you didn't study what's the result?
He failed. So the condition for success is to study right. Now, this is the meaning of law in the Arabic language. Here we don't have law we have Lola Lola to fit into meaning.
Unless Yusuf Ali Salam has the upper hand which is the fear of Allah subhanaw taala in his heart, and the fact that Allah subhanaw taala can see him he would have desire here.
Basically, if this way, okay, let me give you another analogy. Okay.
When I say in Arabic, Lola will do the mock up. I have to set an Arabic first and I'm going to translate it. Lola will do the Moroccan will an fi, Mississauga, Mississauga, la quinta de Vancouver.
If not for the fact that I am with you now here in Mississauga, I would be in fact, in Vancouver, am I in Vancouver? Now? What prevented me from being in Vancouver being with?
Perfect, so use of La ceram would have a desire there. If he doesn't have the fear of Allah subhanaw taala and the fact that he's conscious of Allah. Did you safaris Sam for one second, miss the fear of Allah subhanaw taala when she said come, what did he say?
And this is the Quran. He said. I fear Allah subhanaw taala
luck and see me I can do this.
So it means if you didn't fear Allah, he would have desire there. Did he deserve her? No. So why didn't Allah subhanaw taala say it very easily, you know, not to confuse us and say, and she deserved him, but he didn't desire her for two reasons, right them.
It will contradict the fact that Allah subhana wa Taala mentioned two verses, you know, before he said, what a man should do. He was full of vigor as a man.
So it would mean like, you know, usif, you know, was incompetent or impotent.
She was a very beautiful woman, and she's offering herself to him.
So when he saw her, he said, ma de la because he said, Oh, Allah, I'm a human being, I'm a prophet. I'm infallible, but I'm a human being, I might submit to her seduction. So Allah helped me.
So it was not the fact that he was not a man. Because if Allah subhanaw taala said, she deserved them, and he didn't desire her. Some people might say, use if you know, it doesn't like, you know, he can't you don't have a relationship with a woman, that you put it this simple way. But he was a man.
some scholars have said it could have been the fact that she is his mistress. And he was stunned when she asked him to do that. So he lost his manliness.
You see what I'm saying? But this is not the reason. The only reason that prevented use of La ceram he was a man full of vigor.
And he didn't to lose his manliness. He was not scarred by the fact that God offered him this. But he feels the loss of
his conscious of Allah subhanaw taala can see him. And if the man that we shared this story in the Hadith can do this, wouldn't a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala do it? Who is infallible? You see, now you understand. So Lola is the second evidence. Let's move on.
Lola, Robert, hang on a bit. Some people stop and say what's the meaning of berhanu Raka. You will find many, you know, fabricated stuff in the Tafseer. I'll share with you now. One of them is that they say oh when like he like he responded to her. And he was about to do it. But like when he did that, he looked up and he saw jacoba a slam dunk like this.
What is the evidence? Is this a hadith where the Prophet? This is something fabricated. There's no evidence for that. Another one said,
Yes, he responded to her, and he was about to do it. And so panela At that moment, he looked up and he found the verse of the Quran while Takara was Xena was the karate beat by the time
you see what I'm saying?
So again, what was the reason that he feels the loss of time That's the meaning of the forehand. Okay, he knows that Allah subhanaw taala can see when he said Mandala Oh Allah I secretly to do now protect me from what she's inviting me to do.
Now another evidence of Allah subhanaw taala right after that, he said canonically no slip and who assume I'm going to stop here? Lena fluffer and who?
It's not the wording it's a question.
So canonical in Ostrava on who
notes a warning
can the instruction make a complaint or find like right here? It's always in my class that the answer prayer comes and the questioner comes and the camera comes
Okay, I'm gonna make it up inshallah, in the next time if you want me to come again inshallah.
They said cattolica li nos refer and who? SubhanAllah. The preposition Here is another evidence that Yusuf Ali Salaam, does not like even desert hair, the wishes are?
What does it mean? Allah subhanaw taala says, and let me go to the English that you would understand. Turn away from him. Not turn him away.
The nostril if and who? Not? No sorry for who?
Nothing wasn't him towards her. Yes, he's a man and he would deserve a woman but he feels Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah said llinas refer to the evil is coming from outside from the wife of Al Aziz. But he has no he has nothing even in his heart. He has no even desire in his heart. So Allah didn't say, you know, sorry for who? To turn him away from what? Turn away even that's coming from outside and
This is not evidence. And this is again the miraculous nature of the Arabic language.
So, what is Russia? What's the suit and what says Bashar?
They said here, evil and immoral since some other scholars said, assume means
the introduction before sinner.
What happens before
because once you said, Come, he says i sacrificial Allah so nothing happens. So Allah subhana wa tada kept him away, even from the things that the steps that will happen before the act itself.
That's a suit and the fascia Allah described it. And the chef shared that with you, he said, who can give me the evidence of the verse that talks about, even stay away from the steps that would lead me to sin. Right, that's, that's a soup. And then fascia, Allah described as in itself many times in the Quran, in Ghana, for certain. So Allah describes in As for heisha, so Allah Subhana, Allah has saved us and turn it away from him, something that was coming from outside, which is introduction to Xena and Xena itself, which is a fashion
now in the home, and inner as we said, it's a again, it's a it's a it's a particle that means conformation, and the heart is him very early use of meaning a bad deal. mocassin there are two testimonies here. Two testimonies one by Allah and one by shaitan. The use of did not do it.
How can you explain this? in the home in a bad dinner, there was a dialogue between Allah in the Quran and I'm sure that you all know it.
And shaitan Allah subhanaw taala when shaitan said him, February zety, Gala.
adjumani by Your Majesty by your glory, I will. We are no meaning I would take them away from the straight path, all of them. He didn't make an exception. So what's the job of Tristan? He wants to turn us away all from the straight path. Would you take him as an enemy?
Or you listen to the whispers?
He said I'm saying then Allah subhanaw taala said in a bad delay Silicon Valley him so far. Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran, indeed, my servants those who will submit to me not to you in a baddie, lay silica Allah himself and you will have no authority over my true servants, those who will submit to me.
So how can you consider use of ally ally saying in the home in a bad dinner? Indeed, he's one of our servants, allies of scrubbing, useable lesson to himself not to a shaper. So can the shaitan have something to do with him?
Now let's go to shaitan himself. shaitan said
Sabir is a tickler of Vietnam as a marine when he said the exception was in the coming home. Elmo Colossi except your servants who are as Mukhlas in a look here. There is a fourth ha, on the lam. Elmo last loss.
Alamo loss, right? If we take this and put it down here it will be Alamo. lis. Is there a difference between both? Of course there is a big difference. What's the difference between mocha and mocha loss? Let me share it with you. More close means sincere lockless means sincere.
modulus means one who is selected by Allah subhanaw taala from the beginning to have that sincerity.
So still, what's the difference?
across mean sincerity and both Muslims and Muslims have sincerity. But what's the difference between both it is someone who will try to be sincere in his submission to Allah subhanaw taala and he would worship Allah subhanho wa Taala for a long time. And when Allah subhana wa Taala knows that sincerity in his heart, then Allah subhanaw taala will accept him as a sincere person.
It could take a year could take two years could take four years could take five years, instead what I'm saying?
So panela, but more or less from the very beginning. Allah subhana wa Taala selects some people from amongst his servants to be the prophets. Walker Valley College, the beaker of Booker in the law has puffer Allah uses this in the Quran many times that he selects some people that they are sincere from the beginning they are chosen by Allah subhanaw taala.
And let me let me just share an analogy and a story with you to make this easy for you.
How many of you started practicing Islam and then Subhana Allah after like, you know, one year or two years, like you feel like you know, there is nothing there is no progress
You should I'm saying, you want to feel like you know, you live it if a man is going up, but there is no progress, right? And sometimes some people think, by the fact that they go to the masjid five times a day, and they pray and they pray the five times that they are given hidayah from Allah Subhana, Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala has to put you on a probation period.
To know whether you're mukhlis or not.
And would would you like to share a story with me? I'll tell you this story. There was a brother like one time we were sitting together, and we wanted to go to pray, sometimes some people, you know, would be sitting in the crowd, and they don't pray. So what is the best way to make Dawa to them?
To put them on the spot and say, brother, are you a Muslim?
Is your name Mohammed? Shame on you? We're going to pray inshallah, are you coming is going to say no.
Right? But what if you if your approach is like this, you know, the event comes right in the middle of the talk a lot.
Then you turn to the person like, you know, what does that mean?
I'm looking for the deeper meaning. When I asked you a question from a linguistic background. I'm asking, did you touch your heart? Did you listen that this statement means Allah is greater than everything in your hand, leave it and go and respond to the call. Allah is asking you to be his guest. Allah is gonna host you in his house.
Would you feel that when you hit the den? Or it's like Allahu Akbar, I hear it every day.
Right? So Subhana Allah, you say, like, you know, what does it mean? And then you get one of the brothers looks like so. Oh, it means a lot greater than everything. We have to go and pray. When you ask the brother like Who doesn't? Sorry, brother, we're going to pray inshallah, we'll come back in some okay. We're coming back. Okay. So, are you saying, shall we come back and see, you know, I'm a Muslim, I'm coming.
Is he coming to pray for the sake of Allah. We don't care at that point. We just want to engage him, we want to bring him with us. And this brother Subhanallah he loves shoes so much. He spends most of his money on the shoes.
and he loves sports shoes, you know. So somehow he bought the Choose, and was like 500 Egyptian Pounds.
That's a fortune.
And Cipolla, we went to the masjid. And it was Juma.
And you know how many people go to the Juma? Subhana Allah? We went there and we started the prayer. And he put the shoes right in front of him.
And the man started Allahu Akbar. Alhamdulillah yorubaland me and that brother, all his shoe was on the shoes.
You wouldn't turn away.
First of all, when he came, was he coming to pray for the sake of Allah? It was like I'm a Muslim. Okay, that's the intention. Number one. Second intention. He cared so much about
the second world.
So sapan Allah.
The prayer went on, and Cipolla, the shake was will lay Yes, that's such a nice voice in recitation, everybody was crying.
And this guy like, like no emotions at all, because all his emotions and love was going to the shoes.
You're standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala. You don't have a heart.
Allah smart Allah is telling us from the reflection the Quran, or are their hearts sealed. But again, we said that from the very beginning, his intention was, I'm a Muslim. So Subhan Allah, we went to salute, and Allah subhana wa Taala sent somebody for a message, and he left with the shoes.
And then the guy like, you know, he lifted his head after surgery and the shoes was not there.
And he was mad.
But we finished the prayer. He stood up in the middle of the message. He said, Well, why he I'm not coming to pray again.
So Allah is giving him a test from day one. You remember the probationary. So Paula, you work for an employer for 90 days, and he decides after that
90 days, whether you will continue with him or not. How many years did Allah subhanaw taala leave this person who should be employed by Allah subhanaw taala without firing him without killing him without para paralyzing his legs when he goes to someplace that displeased Allah subhanaw taala You see what I'm saying? So when we go we go for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada
So allow us this thing his sincerity right? From day one he failed because he worshipped his shoes. He didn't worship Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala said in the home in a bad dinner, so how many evidences so far?
Okay, let's go back novela that was number one, right? And we said
Lola is number two, and who three dinner, a local law scene by we said shaitan said Sabir Exotica we are nomads Marine, while your glory majesty I'm gonna, you know, turn them away from your straight path, all of them except Reba, the common human vocal of senior servants who are more Colossians. So did shaitan give evidence here that Yusuf Alayhi Salam did not have the ham? Yes, the verse tells you.
Okay, what's turbo kullberg
both of them are racing.
Right? So panela one is racing
from the disobedience of Allah. And one is racing to disobey Allah subhanaw taala is the raising the same. So panela this was the raising of Yusuf Ali Salaam to turn away from this obedience of Allah. And the wife of Aziz was racing to the door because she wants to get him back. And to disobey Allah subhana wa Tada. What is our racing today?
What are we racing for? Listen to the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala said, Why Serbia poo Isla
de como Jin. And in Surah Al Imran he said, We're sorry, oh, to
become weijun. So Allah has commanded us as Muslims, he said, race to the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala. So should we join yourself Peninsula, raised to Allah subhanaw taala or raise away from Allah Subhana
Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, trophy rule.
Turn back and raise towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. What do people do today? To turn away from Allah subhanaw taala.
So what's typical bear, both of them are racing to the door, but they have different goals. One is trying to go away from the disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala and one was racing, insisting to disobey Allah subhanaw taala.
What could that mean? So who minnowboard meaning double means back, and open means front.
So she, she told his shirt from the back, which means he was running away from or towards here. From that's another evidence.
So he was running away from her, but she was racing to bring him back. So the shirt being thrown from the back, this is another evidence that uses does not
wear alpha. So
their master or her master, this is the Quran that says, look, by the door. Who is the master here? Al Aziz, the husband of
I would rather say the husband of
that woman, rather than saying she's the wife of Lazarus. Why because the next verse will tell you
now use a ballet slam. And the wife of Aziz, when they opened the last door, they found
a license in front of them. Look at what happened who talked first call it merges.
she talked right away. Why? Let's go back you remember what our that will let you off the bat. I asked you to remind me of that. Who has a strong personality here. And as his or his wife,
his wife because he didn't talk? I mean, if you are in such a situation, and you see a man would your wife, what would you do? Would you wait for your wife to defend herself or say something? One of the Sahaba said
If I'm that position, I'm just gonna kill her.
what's wrong man?
So Subhan Allah.
He didn't talk. So she took the initiative and said, What's the recompense of
the warning? Because like, he cares about me, my flight is at 850. So inshallah I have to leave in a few minutes, inshallah.
So, she said, What's the recompense of a person? So Pamela, she didn't say, of a person who wanted to commit adultery, or who committed adultery or fornication with your wife. Why? Because she knows deep inside, that he didn't do anything. It was here. So she wouldn't use the word Sue. He wants to do something evil. She didn't mention it. Why? Because he has nothing in his heart. It was fair.
And looks upon a lot. Now you're asking for something right? You ask a question. You wait for an answer, right? What's the what? How would you judge him? What's the request? What's the punishment? And she knows that he's, he's a use, man.
He's not gonna say anything. So she gives the judgment. She said,
I'm telling you, you should be taken to jail.
Let's beat him up. He shouldn't have done this.
And he's still standing there. Like
that's a good idea.
Where's your man in his or your man? Is this your wife?
Now look at the two choices. She said. Why didn't you say it and you tell he should be killed? Because she still loves him. And she will try again.
And you know that this is going to happen later on in the store, right? That's an indication. She didn't say you couldn't because she's gonna lose him. But in jail, she can go to him, she can get him out of the jail.
Oh, no, he will beat him up, send him to the hospital. He come back.
This is what Allah subhanaw taala said when he talked about paganism. He said in the case of the you know, the plotting of woman he said it's great. And when he talked about shaitan, he said in Acadia shaytani Coronavirus. Indeed, the kind of shaitan is very weak.
And I'm going to share this inshallah later on, you know, it's not the disadvantage inshallah, let me just finish this until I'll have to go and
use the phrase, Sam. He just weighed out like out of politeness and he said, Connor here our destiny infc you he was brave enough to say she seduced me. I didn't do anything.
So he proved his
innocence. Now, this is another indication This is another evidence. Why? Because if you suffer a solemn desire hair the way she deserved him, he would be embarrassed and he wouldn't talk.
But he said he are our acne and FC if he did something, he would be embarrassed he would say and I did and a prophet will never lie. So this is another indication
what are the other evidences? What will happen next?
If you want to know inshallah,
we will come until I would be coming very back into what would be coming very soon, I think in three hours, three, three months.
Three years, I don't know exactly when it's Allah. But May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Garrison's, again shall login in a gathering like this, if not, in general together in sha Allah, my piece of advice to you before I leave in sha Allah, I'll make that for you inshallah, while I'm traveling, and I asked inshallah, to make that for me. But remember this, seek knowledge.
And the most important knowledge that you can seek is the knowledge that will secure your happiness in this life and the second life.
They say, if knowledge was to be measured, by the importance of the topic, they sit down hate no one Allah and His monotheism would be the best, because the best
or the most important thing in our life is Allah subhanaw taala. And if knowledge is measured by the benefit that it will bring you again, learning about Allah subhanaw taala and about the deen is the most valuable and most important knowledge. Why? Because it secures you happiness in this life and the second life in a human science. I'm not belittling human sciences, we have to learn them.
We need them but what I'm saying they will help you in this life but they will not help you in the second life in general inshallah, while you are eating an apple thinking about banana, you will not go banana alone will change the rest of the apples, you know taste into banana and Sharla Okay, so in sha Allah,
anything that we want to do
with these words in sha Allah, I conclude
you can shell out each withdrawal Maghreb. Okay, I'm not gonna visit I'm an instructor with a memory. But my my email is my name like the.or eta be [email protected]
