Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah salam O Allah, Allah wa salam, ala alihi wa sahbihi Omen wala
a very useful conversation outside with some of the youth. And we were discussing something very, very relevant to our youth today. And it's, it's a topic that really preoccupies my mind because many parents approached me with this complaint, that my son or my daughter, at the age between 15, almost all the way to 20, something, they start developing that concept of doubt.
Yes, they have been raised as Muslims.
But this is the
age where they start being mature, mentally. So they start questioning everything.
And this is something very logical, the way parents react
to these doubts and questions by those young people.
It either makes it or breaks it. Meaning, when we invalidate these questions, your kids will just turn away from you. And they will never have a dialogue with you.
And they will get information from the wrong sources. And they might go astray. Or they might end up being atheists, or they leave Islam. And by the way, what I'm talking about now is very serious. There are lots of young people leaving Islam, yes. Whether you admit it or not, it's the reality.
And if we keep
putting our heads in the sand, thinking that by ignoring or problems, they will solve themselves, you're mistaken.
When people approach me, they approach me individually hiding from everyone else. They wouldn't even want to bring their kids here, we're going to say, please come to my house, please, let's meet outside at a public place. Let's meet at a hotel.
But we have to address our problems. Some of our young men
and young women, their boyfriends and girlfriends, yes. Whether you like it, or you don't like it. It's true. But people will approach me in hunch when we are outside Canada and the US, or
even the UK. And they say Shay, please help us with this.
Why? Because we come to this part of the world. And we get busy. With what? When you ask the parents, how old is that young man or young woman
who has strayed from Islam, or they have become a boyfriend or girlfriend? They will tell you they are very young. They are 22 or 25. I say Mashallah. They're still babies.
What have you been? for 20 or 25 years, I was busy making money to secure their future.
Do you think after 22 or 25, you can affect the way they think you're going to be rare for them at that age. They have grown. They have made their own decisions in life, they have decided the path that they will take for the rest of their life.
And you're not going to study this in the future on how to deal with this.
to give quality time to our kids before it's too late.
So these young ones, when they come to you back from school, and they start asking questions, and they say my friend told me, why do you pray?
And you know the answer that they will give their friends, because my dad forces me to pray. I don't like to pray.
That's the answer you will get from them. You drag them to the machine.
And the mothers that come to me and say I keep telling them did you pray? And they keep saying I will.
As if Cipolla, you're giving them poison, or you're leading them.
to death or something, they don't like it. Why? Because they have to love a law first
13 years in Mecca. When the message started, it was all about what?
La ilaha illAllah. Who's along? Why does he deserve to be worshipped?
What did he do to me, so I should submit to Him for the rest of my life.
Sometimes they're even ungrateful to you as the that,
especially when they hit teen age, and youth. How many of us have children who are grateful to them,
you can count them your fingers. But the rest are like, you're not there for me when I needed you. You always forced me to do things that I don't like.
So the parents needs education, when it comes to how to raise their children. In the context that we live in here.
Life is different.
They don't go to the same school that you we went to, you don't have the same culture that you and I carry from back home
and will lie him many times when they come and say, Dad, why do I pray?
You know, sometimes the answer
stuck for a long
time. You're questioning your faith. He didn't even establish that faith first.
And he's not asked me because he is in a state of denial. He's asking because the school that you sent him to teaches him critical thinking asked to learn, not ask the question is questioning because he wants to know.
So when you become logical to him, they will listen to you. But once you start saying, Don't question anymore. You're a Muslim. And a Muslim prays five times a day that says
it doesn't work that way.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, 13 years in Mecca,
started teaching people how to love Allah.
He's a Shafi. He's of Azov. He's 11. He is a summer. He told them what the law is. Then they established one with a law and the 14 years I don't know. They asked you They asked you They asked you. They were revealed in Medina.
After 13 years in Mecca, Allah, Allah, Allah, they loved Allah, they are willing to submit to Allah. There was no car. There was no hugs.
All of this was in the second year of
no obligations. But today, we start with the kids with what obligations?
So you're not telling them that a lie? Is it? What
have you told them the meaning of
Allah loves you more than your own parents.
So when they establish that love with Allah, they will be willing to submit to Him they're gonna say, Okay, tell me what should I do? The Sahaba said, they asked you about this, they asked you about it and they asked me about it. They asked me about it. All these years alumina, casseroles,
alcohol, that was not
the Sahaba in Makkah, we're drinking alcohol. Yes, the Sahaba. They used to drink and come and pray.
It was not from day one that he said stop drinking. They would say we're not gonna follow this religion.
And then alcohol took four stages to be prohibited.
So the day the prohibition was revealed, unnecessarily, Malik said, I was serving my uncles.
And then when we heard the ayah he said everybody who was even taking just a sip, you put it back and he said, Well, Carlton Medina will come because
he says Medina, the alcohol was running like rivers. Why Allah said haraam done. They're ready now.
So I said, Yeah, it's very beautiful to talk about sort of man, but that conversation that started outside, it really broke my heart.
Because this is an example of so many cases. I was in Calgary before I came here a few months. And I sat for three days with kids that I raised in the masjid at this age, and now they are university students, and they left Islam
They left Islam, we have to accept that it is a reality. Don't just shake your head and say no, it doesn't exist, it exists.
But again, is this something bad? After you this, and this is the whole, I give, I always give this youth I say this is a positive sign. Why?
Because this is the age when they start thinking and making their own decisions. They're not copying, you know,
how many of us used to bring our guests to the masjid and teach them halves of the Quran? And I know how fast now
the worst pews at the university, even though they have no interpreter in their hearts, because they were forced to do this they did not do out of love.
So the Sahaba came to the Prophet Solomon and they said we are so Allah, we sometimes think about things that we would rather be thrown into Hellfire without even speaking about them. And about Salim said Alhamdulillah Allah de la da de la in in West wasa daily, Mousavi Halima
when they came to complain about these doubts, that this is profitable, or we think about things, things like what, who's Allah? He can do everything who can hit him? Why don't we see him? All these doubts come at that age.
I went through this when I was 16 years old. This is why in my in one of my classes, I was telling my students I said, Do you want to know the iron that made me a Muslim?
And everybody was like, What?
Weren't you a Muslim? I said, Yeah, I was a Muslim by name. I used to follow my dad because he was a half as he was from Alaska. So I have to follow him. I have to go to the masjid. I have to stop memorizing the Quran. I have to just memorize the words of the Quran. But then there came a time. I'm a young man. And I started questioning everything.
To the point that I used to stay in the machine for three days without leaving the machine. And I'm saying here a lot. I want to see you. I want to talk to you directly. I believe in you so much. But why can't I see you, all these questions came.
And the alum said to the Sahaba shaitan will come to you and he's gonna say who created this, who created this? Who created this until you come to Allah and he's gonna say who can
stop them and get busy with something else and seek refuge with Allah from shaitan
shaitan is trying to play games with you. Because shaitan comes to you through two main gates,
two main gates, Shahada and shubho Han.
SHAN means desires. And suprahyoid means doubts. What's the solution? The scholar said, when it comes to Super handouts, you need to seek learning, you need to learn
you need to defend yourself, you need to establish an immunity system. So you can resist that. So we need to establish this with our kids.
when it comes to shahadat, you need to learn where does it come from? What leads you to that?
And then you stop there. It could be bad friends, change them.
It could be being lonely, get busy, but when you change bad friends, change them with good friends.
stablishing a connection with Allah stablishing a connection with the book of Allah.
when young people come with questions like this, please the first thing that we need to do is validate what they're saying. Say come give me your questions.
It's not bad that you are questioning everything now. This is a stage in your life where your mind and reasoning is maturing. There's nothing wrong with that.
But you need to understand that our Deen respects reasoning. Allah subhana wa Taala in the Quran challenges reason. You read in the Quran many times if Allah tala Barone Ephrata factor own alone, don't use this. I was challenging you
But it's the only book on earth that challenges you to find a mistake.
As a professor at a university,
any author, if you ask them, when they write a book, they write at the end, please, if you find any typos, if you find any mistakes, please email them to me. So in the next edition, I'm going to correct my mistakes because I'm a human being.
I'm not infallible.
But the only book that challenges humanity, till the Day of Judgment is the book of Allah, when
there was a trophy.
If it was not from Allah, they will find many contradictions, but I dare you to find one mistake, or a contradiction in the book of Allah, no way. And the scholar said, if you find something a parent, accuse your limited human mind, and go and seek knowledge. And you will discover that you are the one who is wrong, but Allah can never be wrong.
And Allah created the mind. And the reason they cannot reason
to be a criteria to judge created the reason for you.
And it's amazing.
In a classroom, where there was only a Muslim kid,
and the teacher was an atheist. And he was challenging the whole class. He said, Is there any Muslim in this class?
And then a young girl, she raised her hand. He said, stand up. Do you believe in God? She said, Yes. He said, What is he? She said, He's up.
Is it? What is he? Can you see him? She said, No. Can you touch him? She says, No, he said, then there is no god Sit down.
Then the kid stood up again. And she raised her hand. Can you ask you a question?
He said, Yes. She said, and please don't be offended. He said, I wouldn't.
She said, Okay. Do you have a mind is like, Yes. Is that what is it?
And his line?
She said, Can you see it? He said, No. She said, Can you touch it?
He said, No. She said, I'm sorry to tell you that you are insane. And he shouldn't be teaching.
And she said that she used the same logic.
So we don't have to believe in things that we don't see. What is this?
Hello, cellphone, right? Can you see it? So it exists? Okay.
Can you see the phone
I know you. I know. You're from the cam.
This is Mr. challenger. Okay.
Does the phone exist?
What is it?
So the fact that we don't see it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist? No.
Excellent. So if you have a father and he's not attending this, the fact that we don't see him doesn't mean that he doesn't exist.
You see? Okay, so let's go back.
Sorry. So I just wanna
start with you the dialogue that we started outside,
you know, sort of man can wait. But this is really urgent.
A young man came to me, he said, I was raised as a Muslim.
And I believe that God exists, and that he created me, but I don't believe in religion. And I think these religions are made to control people.
This is repeating something that has been written by someone. But again, we're not going to go into that. But my question is, how can we deal with a situation like this?
And this could be a question that will come from one of your kids, he might not say it now. And it might be in his mind right now.
Some of them voice it out. Some would not. But they will talk with their friends about that.
Okay. If you were to yell at them come and pray they will play because they are afraid of you. But they will come
A time when they're gonna say, hey,
if you keep yelling at me like this, there is something called 911.
There's something also called 311.
I'm not gonna tell you,
Okay. So what I'm trying to say, sometimes, you know, some parents will come back home from work close to us all time, right? And they have Mashallah o'clock in the house that gives a damn when the when the time comes, right? And then when the time comes is gonna start running inside the house, yelling at his four kids, two boys and two girls.
Did you play awesome? Okay, one of them is seven is gonna run scared to death with a pale face, you're going to make moto uncom.
Okay, the other one is 11. They're going to give him a dirty look. They're going to go and make odo and they will come and stand in a challenging way. But guess what? The one who's 15 is as tall as his father now. And the one who is 18 is taller than his father now. They're gonna come and say
what? Sir? Did you pray? Awesome. Then I say did you pray also yourself?
Yeah, it comes to a point where the parents come to me and say, now they started talking back.
Am I right? All right. That happens.
by example, is the best way instead of yelling at them and say, Did you pray? Why didn't you just like, you know, make widow and say, Hey, kids, we're gonna start praying soon, inshallah, five minutes, we're gonna do the karma.
If you're away from the message, and you can make it to the machine,
and then once you make a karma, most of them will come. Some of them will come out of embarrassment, out of a habit. They're used to it. Okay, but you need to establish a loving relationship with those who are becoming teenagers and young people. You need to sit down after the salon say, why did we pray?
And then the young one would say,
because you yelled at me that he said, we have to pray. And this is a natural answer.
If you ask him, would you like to pray? Or to play an extra video game is gonna say, Would you like the politically correct answer? Or what I really feel I really want to play another game and only snatch them from playing the games to pray. They can be thinking about the video game. They killed 12 soldiers. They want to go back call to duty right and they want to kill more.
Right? Do you want to kill more? Right? And those kids who are killing Mashallah 1000s of soldiers look at them at 12 midnight when a cockroach starts running into those like oh my god man come in and they call the police to deal with the cockroach and Mashallah they just finished killing 12,000 soldiers in the virtual world.
But in the real world, they cannot even deal with a cockroach.
This is the generation that we are raising. And you know, we as parents if we want to keep the bids, if we want to keep the kids busy. What do we do? Give them a new game in busy
to get the last one up is the PS five out yet for Okay, so you guys are lagging behind I have PS five
in each upgrade man.
So you see what I'm saying? This is very serious. So what am I talking about today brothers and sisters.
We need to establish a loving relationship between our kids and Allah.
The only way they will enjoy salah and enjoy the Quran. If you almost from day one, link everything to Allah but we live in a very materialistic world, in what we say. If you get me an A albino bike, you see everything is attached to you and something materialistic. But if you say if you get an A, Allah will love you and you will be the best Muslim in the community. And Allah Subhana Allah will give you a gift through me How many times did I talk about Allah?
Because I like everything to Allah.
So the kids will always go think, oh, he's gonna tell his friends like you know, do you know who God
Neither bike is gonna say Yes, he's gonna say Allah.
What? Are you crazy? luck him Don't give you the bike. No, you don't understand. Allah gave me a dance.
You see how the kids will think a lot Everything is ready to alarm.
Right? If you memorize certain bacara Allah will love you so much. If you memorize the beginning of Surah
alkaff at the ending, Allah will save you from, you know, unmeasured, that Jan. Allah will love you. And you know what? Allah will give you a gift from me. I told you a story about my youngest one, when she was young.
She came to me one day she Latino dad, as far as I said, I hate you. I said, who care?
Isn't this your slogan in life now? Who cares? I could care less.
You don't want to know why I hate you. I said, Are you giving me good news? Why should I care about knowing that you hate me? I will tell you I said Go ahead.
She said you never buy me anything.
And her mom john to defend me. She's like, No, no, no, your dad gives me the money. Because he doesn't like to do shopping. But you know, it's one of the best things that women love.
shopping, right? And then
I buy you everything. She said mom Don't lie. Lying is haram.
Those who lie will go to Johanna. I've never seen him giving you any money.
So how would you convince like a five or six year old about that? She said, All I see is that you go to the wall. You put something in there and you get the money from there. She said yes. Your dad puts the money. I never saw him putting the money there Don't lie.
So it's very sophisticated to explain the idea of a joint account and a bank. Again, what should we do? That was very early. So I got here. So sit down.
I said, Do you know your grandma? She said yes. I said who created her? She said God.
I said then who created your mom from your grandma? She said God. So I said God gave you a grandma tsakhia? And then he gave you a mums like, yeah. And who created your grandfather said, God. And then he said, Who gave you a father from your grandfather said God. Then I said, Who gave you a god education? She said, Who gave you that education said God. I said, Who gave you got a job? She said, God, I said, through the job, what do we get? She said money? I said, excellent. So you see that I'm working. She said, Well, I never see you at home, because you're always at the masjid.
or outside of the university.
I said, excellent. So who gives you everything? She said, Give me the word
of law. Then I said, Is it your mom or your dad who buys you the gift? She said, No, that gives me everything from my mom.
And later on, I had to take her to the bank.
When she grew up a little bit, and she saw the meaning of a joint account, and how the money comes from the job goes to the bank. And there is money there that I or her mom can spin out of? Then she realized so now her hearts attached to her
to her mom, or to her dad, or to Allah.
That's lesson number one today. We should always link everything to
Allah. You know, sometimes we do with the handler, but we do the negative way. Shall I give you examples?
If you don't pray, Allah will take you to how far
do you think this is a loving relationship with Allah? They can be scared of Allah.
If you don't listen to me, Allah will be mad at you. What type of god are you creating in their minds?
Scary, right? angry.
So let's try to do it the positive way.
If you pray, Allah will love you. If you don't pray for sometimes Allah will forgive you but you need to come back. Always be positive.
So when the brother came to me and he said, I believe in God, he created me.
But I don't believe in religion. I said excellent.
There is always a reason behind everything. Right? I said, when people made that cycle watch
what was the purpose
They said profit, they wanted to make money, right? I said, then they have to present it to the to the market, they have to market it, and then they will make the profit. I said, When Allah subhanaw taala created you, is there a purpose?
He said, you're taking me to religion? I said, No, I'm talking logic. Now. You said that behind every creation, there is a creator. So the creator of anything in this life, they have a purpose. Do you think that Allah subhanaw taala had a purpose? Do you think Alicia establish a relationship between himself and his creation? Or he just tweeted them and left them?
He said, Yes. I said, how would he communicate with them?
He said through a messenger I said, perfect,
who should be messengers he said perfect people amongst us as Mashallah are giving me the answers.
And then Allah will not talk to us
directly. So there is a mediator between the messengers and Allah.
He said, Yeah, jabril I said, Masha, Allah, you know it. We just know images just need to put those little things together for them to make sense.
He said, I said, so why is the Quran in Arabic? Can anybody tell me
when I asked this question at the university, I was given wonderful answers, but none of them were none of them was right. Somebody told me because Arabic is a very beautiful language. I said you are more beautiful than Arabic And
somebody else said Oh, it's the language of people of genuine Sharla
I still didn't answer my question. Why was the Quran the built in Arabic?
Lala Come on, so that you may understand
but why not in English
but there was a Persian Empire and there was a Roman Empire at the time
you're almost there You're almost there Mashallah.
Challenge masala beautiful answer, but this is not what I'm looking for.
Mashallah, a good language, but this is not the right answer.
is the language that you read the Quran in excellent, Mashallah. But still,
because the Arabs mastered the Arabic language so I can link this to what he said it was a challenge to the Arabs. But again,
why was it revealed in Arabic?
That's the right answer.
Because the messenger who was delivered the message was an Arab and he was sent to the Arabs, you have to put that link together. And that's in Surat Ibrahim, if you didn't saw him, so number 14.
And number four, Allah subhanaw taala said,
Why liuba in Allah whom we have never sent a messenger, except in the language of his own people so that they can communicate.
Imagine Allah can teach the processor learn Chinese within five seconds? in no time. Do you know how much did it take
to learn Hebrew?
We go to the university to learn that language now for years, and we have been speaking that language maybe for 16 years. And we still cannot master the language.
And we still have an accent. Right? They didn't have it took 17 days. And he mastered Hebrew. And he used to be an expert the process alone when there's a Jewish delegation, he'll be interpreting for him 17 days.
So Allah could have told the prof Salaam Chinese,
right? English, but it's very simple. Why don't we make it complicated. The Quran was revealed to a prophet who speaks Arabic and his people speak Arabic. So you have to put that link together. The one who receives the revelation is an Arab and he is sent to start with
To the Arabs to start with because his message is universal, and there is no messenger after him. masala illa caffitaly nurse, Omar sonica in LA rahmatullah wa ala me, he's not only sent to the Arabs. So what we have now as translation of the meaning of the Koran, we can never ever say, this is an English Koran, or this is a Spanish Koran. No.
This is only a translation of the meaning so that people can get a feeling
or some of the meanings of the Quran. But if you want to understand the Koran, you can never understand it except in the Arabic language.
That's another question. That's another question. Okay. And it's a long answer. I'll summarize it for you for like maybe three or four points. Okay, but it's a long one.
First of all,
the Arabs mainly would be doing this.
There is their time of life was traveling all the time, wherever there is rain, and there is grass, they will take the cattle and move. Okay. So if it was revealed, for example, to the two empires at that time, which was the Byzantium Empire, or the Persian Empire, or the Roman Empire, they're gonna say, Oh, that was a civilization, man. But these were ignorant people living in the desert.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the best man ever was illiterate, he doesn't know how to read and write Otherwise, they would have said, Oh, he made up the Quran. And in fact, they did. If you read in the Koran,
Or he learned this from the people of the book, they said that too.
So it was meant that these people wherever they travel, they will take the message with them. And no one can say, Oh, it was a big civilization and they develop that style of life. It's not something coming from Allah.
These big wins. They used to have wars for 40 years over a trivial reason over a woman over a well of water. And they will kill each other, you know, allow some hostage. They keep fighting each other for 40 years. And above Solomon, he came he stopped Oh,
you see what I'm saying? So this is one of the biggest reasons the Prophet himself is illiterate. He doesn't know how to write and write. And that's a miracle in itself. The Arabs were between traveling and then wherever they travel, they take their faith with them. Otherwise, it would have been said Oh, they were like a big civilization. And they are the ones who develop that style of life. It's not from God.
Another reason sapan Allah
you will find that
once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away,
do you know how many people are amongst the Sahaba are buried in ibaka?
Do you know the number of the whole Sahaba 114,000. Let me repeat this again. So what's the total number of the Sahaba 114,000? How many of them are burned? In the back here? How many 10,000 Okay, this is one of the first Muslim mistake was and Medina right. Do you know what the rest die
all over the world spreading Islam.
Islam was spread within 30 years was in every corner of the world. at the hands of those Bedouins when they traveled, they don't have a fixed place. You ally now you save all of your life to buy a townhouse. When you buy the townhouse, it becomes your love. That love is deep inside there. Would you sell that house? You put all your savings and, and hamdullah It's a holiday house.
Right? So we are attached to things today? Because we live in a civilization. We live in a civilized community. We're attached to our jobs and to our houses. But back there, you know, whatever the 10th will take them. They've taken the cattle and move and move. Do you know what a valuable Ansari, the one who received the process when they first arrived in Medina? And he hosted him in his house in Medina? Do you know where did he die? Where is his grave?
It's at the outskirts of Constantinople Turkey.
See how much how far they traveled?
It answer question. Okay. So don't bank.
the concept of
having doubts, and questioning the dean, we should validate their concern, we should open a dialogue with them. So when I opened the dialogue with the lucky young man, and I said, Okay,
did God communicate with his creation through a messenger? And he sent him a book?
He said, Yes, I said otherwise, that organized form that you deny called religion, as if you're saying God created us, and he never provided guidance for us.
And part of the word Rob,
is that he creates, and he provides guidance, how many times that I explained this, and mohalla has
the word prompt.
It contains two main meanings. Allah Allah who
the one who creates is the one who dictates is the one who gives commands.
And let me explain this in real life. How many of you are employees raise your hand?
You have an employer, right? At some point of life, at some point of your life, right? So do you follow the instructions of your employer,
you have to come at that time, you have to leave at that time. You have to do this and this and this. And this.
If you choose with your own free will to say, you know what,
I'm not gonna show up
at nine o'clock in the morning, or I will show up, you know, those cars that they have a chicken and then you leave, and you come at five o'clock. You check out between nine and five, you're in your own outside doing your own business.
Can you dare at the end of the month, go to your employer and say, where's my paycheck?
Can you do that?
Some people want to do this with Allah.
They never submitted themselves to Allah in this dunya. And an add on they see Jen and Helfer, they're gonna say, we want to go to Gen. Y. Because I never admitted that you are my Creator. I just said it lip service. But I never submitted to you. I submitted to myself, I did what I like.
I even asked the brother a very simple question. I said, if you have a car, and after this lecture, you give me a ride back home was the first thing that comes out of my mouth when I get off your car.
Thank you for what?
For the right. Right? Okay, what if I come to the hospital?
And they say that you need an eye? Or you need a kidney? And I donated one of my kidneys to you?
How big is that? Thank you.
And I'm a human being like you.
Do we have this today happening? Yes,
somebody is almost dying in the hospital. And you give them blood, which is the source of life,
how much indebted these people will be to you?
Right? So I said, Okay, leave this alone. And let me ask you, who brought you to this life? He said, God, I said, Who gave you life your entire life? It said, God, I said, Who made you who you are now, as a student at the University. He said, God,
I said, when you go to bend,
do you die?
Does your soul go up to Allah and you're just a body breathing? That's what Allah says in the Quran.
And then you wake up in the morning, Allah sends your soul back to you.
He said, Yes. I said, this is called minor death. You can never deny resurrection because you die every day. And you got it and you get resurrected. Outside here, I pointed at the grass. I say can you still see some brown grass and some green grass? He said yes. I said in a few months from now, on the beautiful snowy auto will start. Would you see green? He said no. I said now in this season, do you see green? He said yes. He said oh brought it back to life.
So it was dead and alive brings it back to life. That's another sign that there is there.
election. You see it in yourself. You see it around you because we have a book that we open and close that's called the Koran. And we have a book that's open all the time, which is
Al Cohn, the globe around you. Allah shows you signs right. Suddenly him I attended Phil Alfa Wolfie unfussy him, we will show them our signs in the horizons all over the place wherever your eyesight could go as far as much as you can. And in yourself. I said, Do you know how much operations does your level two every day to take all the toxins out of your body? Who can stop that?
I said, if your beats heartbeats go below the rate that's needed, you know what happens? They have to plan something called a pace maker.
So for us, we have to have that for us. It's working automatic.
Who does this? Your eyes?
You watch her arm every day and you go to bed you wake up in the morning you have your eyesight? Who is giving you that? And I concluded by saying this Listen, in Surah two I number 256 Let me say this again. Surah number two, Al Baqarah Ayah 256. Allah said let ikura have a deal. No one can force you to be a Muslim. No one. Okay. Allah says in doing so in 1829 throttle calf. And number 29 Rocco hakama Ravi Kumar, Mohammed say to them, the truth comes from your master from insha Allah folio man, woman.
You have the freewill to believe and you have the freewill to disbelieve. But because he loves you, he will tell you the consequence of your choice from now. So that you will have listened to inshallah so that you will have no excuse on the Day of Judgment. And he will say, Why didn't you warn me. So the Quran, that religion that you want to deny is the warning. And because you and I do not like obligations, we want to live our life the way we like. And then at the end, we want to get the best of everything. This is unfair.
Because some people will lower their gaze in this dunya. And they deserve to be compensated. Some people will stay away from dealing with harassment, they need to be compensated, some people stop killing you, because they know that this is harm. Some people stop robbing you because they know that this is hard. But you go ahead and rock and normalize and steal and deal with River. And then you want to come into the judgment and you will be treated the same. That's unfair. And this life is based on a balance.
What sama arafa
Visa, you're not just an individual.
You have people around you, you're a son, you're a neighbor, you're a classmate, it could be a hospital, it could be a brother, it could be a sister, you have so many relations, you have to be fair in all of these relations. Because justice.
If a law leaves us to do whatever we like here, Justice will be administered on a day of justice on a day of judgment.
So Allah says festwochen cannot
follow the straight path. As you were told, as you were commanded, that's religion. But you want to tell me first?
No, I will do whatever I like, go ahead, you're free. But I enjoy slavery to Allah.
But you enjoy slavery to yourself. And there will be a day where the results will be announced. And there will be winners and there will be losers.
So no one will force you, you make your choice. But because Allah subhanaw taala is the old fair, he told us the consequence of our choices. And after he said
affiliate affiliate for
and the truth comes from your master. You have the free will to believe you have the free will to disbelieve yourself in
the mean, and
if you choose to disbelieve, you're doing injustice to yourself, but there is Hellfire waiting for you. You make your choice. And I said Brother, you know what scares you? You know why you're coming to ask me it's exactly those young people that I was sitting with in Calgary when Allah subhanaw taala used me to
guide them back. I said, Listen, you will die. And this is the last card that I always used with atheists. I said you will die. Yes, sir. Yes. That's what scares them the most. And they say, yes. I said, Are you ready for that moment, they said, This is why I was scared. I said that in itself is a science that you know,
that you will be brought to account. So don't lie to yourself. Somebody gave you life, somebody will claim it back. And he will bring you to account. Your eyes are not yours. Your hands are not yours. Your heart is not yours, all of you is a trust. Allah gave you that trust. And he will ask you on the Day of Judgment, what did you do with it? Did you use it to be successful? Or did you abuse it to be a loser? You need to understand this. And this soon, he said,
I said, Yeah. Because you can never say to the angel of death, when he comes to you, come tomorrow, or come after a month, can never say that. And you know, that moment will come. And that's what scares you the most. And that's why you're coming to ask me why. Otherwise, you will have peace, you will never have peace of the heart and peace of the mind. Alyssa establish relationship with Allah, Allah Dena.
Those who believe
under our house will have peace be.
By the remembrance of Allah, Allah.
It's only when you establish a connection with Allah, and you keep remembering him that you will have that peace. And I told them, this is the last thing I'm going to share with you. I have friends who are billionaires.
And they told me many times, if you had followed our path, without wasting your time in the massage, and in teaching Islamic universities, you could have been the best comedian like us. And you will have you'll have a house, you know, half of it will be in the ocean, and you will be a billionaire like us. And I always ask them one question. I said, you make everybody laugh. But are you happy? They say no, I said, Thank you, hamdulillah. I'm not a billionaire, but I'm happy.
I have health issues, I have family issues, I have financial issues. I have all issues of the world. But we're lucky if the Angel of Death comes to me now. I'm going to say Allah, I'm very happy to be with you tonight. That's enough for me. I don't care about anything else. As long as my life and my risk is in the hands of Allah, I could care less about anything happening in this life.
And this is why the Sahaba they used to have the dounia in their hands, and the Astra in their hearts, when something threatens you, you throw what's in your hand, and you keep what's in your heart. Our problem today is we have the dunya in our hearts. And we have our hands, when something threatens us. We throw what's in our hands, which is the ephemera. And we keep what's in our hearts, which is the dunya. And I will keep reminding this story to remind you and then I'm going to take the question from the other the story of almighty hammer,
one of the great Sahaba, before the beginning of the battle of butter, the prophets of Salaam gave a motivational speech. And he was boosting the man of the Sahaba to join the battle of butter, at the end of which he said
our art stand for the expanse of which is equal to the heavens and to the heavens and the earth. And at that point, Alan said Angelina back.
And the professor Lam said to him, yeah, oh my. What did you say back in back in. And again, I explained back in back in too many times. We still need a translation. We always charge $100 as a donation to the masjid in sha Allah. It's very simple. Back in back in means, yes. It's it's, it's a parallel. It's an expression of happiness. You know, it's not even a word that means something. You know, we know when we say oh, we are frustrated. You know when your mom says take the garbage with you and say
Why me? My Do you think I'm the garbage man?
Do you think your mom was the garbage
Munch has been taking it every day.
We need to help right?
Okay, so Subhan Allah, He said back in back in Elgin is Allah. So he's so excited for gentlemen. He said, Why did you say this all mine is a prophet of Allah. I love Jenna, I want to beat in general, what stands as a barrier between me and john, I said nothing but to join that battle. And if you die for the sake of Allah, you are in jeopardy.
You know what he did?
He had three dates in his hand. He looked at them. And he said, Well law in the top
time around, he looked at the three dates in his hand, and he said,
it will be a very long life if I live until I finish eating these dates, and he throws him and he joined.
And this is why I
amongst the believers, there are real men.
Men are honest. When they when they give you the covenant to Allah, Allah, I want gender. And I'm honest, Allah said, Here you go, you're in gender,
some of them were killed in the Battle of butter, and these are the best.
And some others are waiting for the same opportunity to come to them, one by delta Videla, they never change the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they're always on that path of the prophets of Allah audience.
And Subhana Allah, the reason of the revelation of this ayah was not because of it, but the same applies to America. In fact, the reason for the revelation of this I am
Would you like to know it
No, I think after after we finished inshallah, the questions are all concluded inshallah
he simply brings it to life. He also brought the example of winter,
as a significant step, but we know very well
This is no this is right in life. So it's not an excuse to be different, like
an innovator let us know. So we cannot expose
everyone, everyone is our seat.
sterilize your lead for the pocket.
You will never bring light to it.
So it's not only it's not sending it to them,
it's not sending them to death. So I never understood this and my children intelligent whenever.
But But if Allah said this in the Quran, if Allah said this in the Quran,
who created the seeds?
And then the process of bringing life is that the rain comes and the seeds grow? Or not just challenging, again, going into details about how does it happen? That's another question. But the question that I'm raising is the analogy is, the seeds are there. You can plant seeds, and then a drought comes. So who since the rain and the rain has water and water is the source of life? That's the essence. Okay, we're not going to go into details how life comes back. If it's sterilized for some time, that's not my question. Now. I'm saying, I'll give you the idea. Just to just to make it short.
Social ambia so number 21, and number 30, Allah subhanho wa Taala folks at the beginning of the of the AI about the Big Bang Theory, the ending of the AI is about the fact that we're talking about now. Let me decide and give you the details. Allah subhanaw taala said, Our lm er en lady Nika from
out of the cabinet.
That's the big bang theory that discovered that was discovered only last century, Allah saying, haven't the disbelievers again, those who almost disbelief reflected alas in our era era.
In the Arabic language again, if we're going to play the game of linguistics because this is this is my speciality the words Yara means to see. Okay? But does it mean see here? No. So you can always translate words literally. It means see with their
reasoning, meaning reflect what Allah subhanaw taala said, when you look at the birds, okay? How do they fly?
A lot smarter to explain this as Rasul. Allah Mira
saw a foreign way of
understanding what does that mean, when you look at the birds suffered means they're stretching their wings? Why are they folded wings? Meryem sukoon de la man, when they fold their wings, who keeps them in the air?
Do you know if the plane which is a simulation of the creation of the bird, if you cut the wings of the plane, you know what's gonna happen?
It's gonna throw up right away. But I was giving you the analogy reflect. It's Allah who's in control. It's Allah who gives life and takes it back. Okay, so Allah saying to those people reflect things
in the days, the heavens and the earth were one piece and along me that explosion that they got separated. This is the big bang theory.
Then the ending of the acid watch Island
and we made out of water every living being if there is no water brother, there is no life.
If there is no water, there is no life. So whether the snow sterilize the land for some time, that's not my issue. I'm saying if you bring snow, which is a form of waters frozen, okay, and put it on top of seeds wouldn't grow? The answer is no. It's the rain. It's the water, even though this is a form of water, but it's a law who makes that happen? Right? There are many lands that people put the seeds and Allah decides this piece of the land these people are sinners. I'm going to send a drought, no rain.
Okay, bring snow and put it on top of those seeds. Will it grow? No. So it's Allah, I want to say it's not the water even it's not the snow, it's Allah. This is the formula how life comes back. We're not questioning that. But Allah said, Let them think when Allah since the reign, Allah said it brings life back to the land. That's what Allah said. And I believe in that and I see that and you see it, and it should reflect about that. go into details, go and study science, that's another issue. Okay, when I knew go to the hospital, we are dehydrated was the first thing that they give you fluids because your body and my body is 70 to 80% water.
When people start doing diets, you know what they lose in the beginning and they think they lost weight. They lose some water
and then they come back and say yes, you know, let's let's have a feast. And then they go and eat fat again and they eat this and this and they gain more weight.
let me finish with the with the story that I promised you would you like to know the story of the eyes?
Okay, that isn't sorted. So number 33 and as number 23 Mr. Again socializer face is 33 and the eye is 23 I told you a story about that I remember it that was the only store that that was the only high end
when they compiled the Quran they verified every I again is to have the whole false this was the only I and that was heard by one Sahabi was his name.
Whoever tells me I'll give him tin candies.
Oh my god, I'm not studying.
Be careful because you'll have to do with chocolate if you give me the wrong answer.
So your dad is gonna is gonna bring a pack of chocolate. Okay. So his name is Jose Mr. Ansari, you're not studying. You're not concentrating you can go back to my
dogs or dogs or their YouTube channel and you will see I said this like at least two or three times so far. Okay, it was a lot of inhabitant Ansari, who was the only one who heard this ayah Okay, anyway, so the ayah was the reason for the revelation of this I mean the MENA region and soco Maha de la la
it was because in the Battle of
did not ask all the Sahaba to join. He said whoever is ready, let him join me. And they will not take with them lots of Swords or like, you know, horses or anything.
They were just going there to stop the caravan of the merchandise of Mecca claim their money back without fighting, but it turned out to be a battle anyway.
So one of the Sahaba missed that battle.
One of the Sahaba missed that battle.
So the Prophet Salim said lalala, holla, holla Holla Holla. But sakala is not almost a term for any photographer, Calico, the people of better if it were not for them, if they were killed during that battle and the process of them, we wouldn't be Muslims today. So the process lm said, the Sahaba had a special status with a lot amongst the Sahaba. The best amongst the Sahaba are those who attended the bottle of butter. So he said, as if Allah has looked into the hearts of the people of butter, and he said to them, Do whatever you like, I have forgiven you. This is why how to apply belta I would share this story with you shall one day at the beginning of September 16th rotten Montana
suppiler law he did something very serious. by today's definition. It's called Kiana Obama grand treason. Yet Allah has forgiven him.
It's amazing. He was one of those who attended the Battle of Baroda. But anyway, and so would you forget that name, inshallah. Can you repeat it? Ns Eben another ns Eben another. He missed the Battle of better. And he came and he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a prophet of Allah. If Allah extends my life, to the next button, I will show Allah and His Messenger how much I love them.
He said if a lot extends my life, to witness the next battle, I will show Allah and His Messenger how much I love them. When I go for Umrah or Hajj every year, and Oh God, I explained to the people, the exact situation, and we're an assembler mother was killed
in that battle. Second Battle right away Battle of your heart. So in the Battle of
the Sahaba were fighting and ns another came late when he arrived, it was the time when Abner Kamiya Allah Himalayan Master, he hid the profits of cillum on his helmet, and it started piercing into his cheeks. And he was bleeding until hobnob by the Lackey. And he started trying to take the helmet because the cheeks were bleeding. You know, it started when I tried to snatch it until he lost most of his teeth.
And then he was defending the processor and he they pushed him into a hole. And his front teeth were broken the processor limb and there was a rumor that the problem was killed. So some of the Sahaba started laying off their swords, and they were crying, and some others were walking back to Medina and leaving the battle.
Then at that point,
and I said another key
and he was pushing those who are leaving. Where are you going? They said matter
And then he asked
me sitting down, laying off your sores. They said
Why should we fight? He said
die for the same cause join me and he started piercing into the lines of the people of Christ killing everyone right and left and comes back
very close to the mountain of what hurt. They killed him. And not only that, they killed him. They mutilated his body. They cut his body into pieces. And it was only his sister who could recognize his body by one sign or mark in his finger.
And you know what was the last words that and a sudden another said before he passed away?
He said to the Sahaba
well law he in Neela assume more I had Elgin mental feature
by a law.
I smell the fragrance of gin from behind the mountain of
Sala revealed I am because of anessa not
meaner and meaner.
Amongst the believers are real men. Isn't this the man who sit to the processor and if a lot of work to extend my life, to the next battle, I will show Allah and His Messenger how much I love them. He was giving his own soul. And Allah gave him
to smell the fragrance.
The nice scent of gentlemen. He said, I can smell the fragrance of gentlemen from behind the mountain of a hut. And this is why this was only heard by Jose Imam Abdullah Tabitha Ansari, and I told you the Sahaba never wrote an ayah in the Quran. Except after verifying that it was heard, directly from the processor lamb by two of the heifers and the reason they accepted this from a man was because Jose Maria lavon, one day was sitting next to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there was a big one who sold a horse or a candle to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he came back to claim the money even though the Basilan paid him. And above Selim said, didn't I pay
you? And he said, No. Then the porcelain turned around, he said, Who could bear witness that I gave him his money. And Jose mal was sitting there, he was the only one. So he said, Prophet of Allah, I will bear witness that you gave him the money. So the big one shied away, and he left. So the process along turn to Jose man, and he said to him,
did you see me giving him the money? He said, no prophet of Allah. I've never seen you giving him the money. He said, How come that you bear witness
about something that you didn't see is a prophet of Allah, I'll be sitting next to you. And all of a sudden, on a very, very cold day.
You stop talking to us, and you start sweating. And jabril comes down. And he reveals is that we don't hear. And you tell us that this is coming from Allah and we believe you, and you're gonna lie about some money.
And the pasilla made a statement at that point. He said,
Hey, people, bear witness. Men shahidullah hoceima.
If anyone takes Jose, as a witness, he doesn't need a second witness. Because in Islam, for you to go to the court, you need to have two men, or at least a man and two women. But the professor Lam said, Whoever takes was a man as a witness is enough. You don't need another one. And so power law was was a man the only one who heard the I 23 and so on number 33 million millionaires Alan Sakuma Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla
