Before we start
you guys have two options to come close, or I come close, I love you, I can come close to you, but they put a table for me. So show me the love and come towards the shower.
I know you know sometimes you need to rest with your Vatican use the seats here.
But it's already raining outside I need to feel the wounds each other
as good. And you know, at the time of the prophets of Salaam it used to be called 100 and 100 kilometer circle. So they were like circling the profits on the low end estimate. As an introduction, I'm going to start with two things.
First of all,
a reminder of the reward that we get from attending gatherings like this
when people know
that they're going to get paid to get motivated right.
So if you know they're worthy of getting by sitting here, they will keep you motivated inshallah every time
and the profits alone earlier seldom said
Mr. McComb fee baiting and beauty law
when people got are in one of the houses of Allah, which we're doing now under law will accept from us and grant us the sincerity of intention
and they decide the book of Allah
asuna houfy Marina and they study to learn good that book is not just there to recite, or even to memorize. that's step number one.
So we need to study what's in there because this is going to be our way of life. We model our life according to what Allah subhanaw taala says.
So since we are going to recite and study may ask you to bring me a copy of the Quran please
and it will be a good idea for you also inshallah starting next time for you like to take notes, especially the old ones my age here and Michelle.
How old are you brother
14 Mashallah. He is two years younger than me Mashallah.
And I can see lots of young people here, Mashallah. Which is amazing. So, the prophets are seldom sent when people you know, come to the house of Allah and lay aside the book of Allah subhanaw taala, and they study, you know, the Book of Allah subhanaw taala except that they get 40 words and he wanted to come to me.
So, number one,
they're surrounded with angels. Just want you to
picture that now. Now, we are surrounded by angels. That's what the prophets have said. Imagine a gathering, surrounded by angels.
what's the what's the job of the angels?
You know, Allah subhanaw taala told us that one of the jobs of the angels is that you start fooling definitely levina
the ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive the believers and the prophets of Allah so I'm explain that by saying, once you pray, and you sit in the masjid, Allah subhanaw taala assigns you an angel, and the angel would say, a lot of money
until you leave.
Can you imagine your assign an angel now? Doing nothing? But saying Yeah, Allah, forgive him or forgive her. You know, Allah showed him or her with your nursing.
se, LA, se, LA, se la la? Are you just follow me blindly as they say, Why do you say well, I wouldn't say I will say much. Right?
So this is the first price from Allah Subhana Allah is
That you're surrounded by angels and angels are working for you now. They're asking Allah to forgive you and show you with your with with His mercies of high level. Do we need the forgiveness of Allah say yes or yes.
Do we need the mercy of Allah say yes or yes. How can we live with the mercy of Allah? We cannot write
especially at this time and age.
That's number one number two
wabasha Toma Rama
a loss of high level Matata encompasses this gathering with his mercy.
No, no, mean hamdulillah?
No, no. I want you to feel that hunger level you say it.
This is the only way you can interact with Allah. This is the only way.
Allah subhanaw taala will listen to you if it comes from
the heart, not from the tongue.
Many people will always say this. I don't want some liquor and nothing changes. I decided I haven't kursi but I still see nightmares. Yeah, you decide either person.
You don't feel at a person. You don't mean as a person. Do you even understand the meaning of either person.
That's what we need to change in our life. And also
listens to our hearts, not orphans.
Allah looks into our hearts. You know, before you leave your house, was the last thing do you look at the mirror? You know that going behind the door?
look nice. You made sure that look nice. Especially your face. And it's cold face. Because you face people who die. And this is what people would look.
I'm a writer, I
disagree with you. I agree
And we have hate in our hearts. We have grunch in our hearts. We have lightning, we have hypocrisy. And then we say why don't I connect with Allah? I'm trying. I see some people crying in
person cry. Yeah. Because your heart is full of diseases. loads in five minutes that clean?
How can you connect?
So what do we need to focus on starting from today on is our hearts, Allah looks into our hearts
and looks into our deeds.
Not our bodies. You know young people when they go to the gym. It's always good to be fit. It's always good to be healthy. But if your main concern is to have those biceps, you know, and six packs, if it's, if that's your intention, so when are you going to be modeling and that's it.
We'll learn and you can get a reward for that for being fit and looking nice.
Because we're in the process of settling, I was sitting with the Sahaba and there was a young man Mashallah with shape, very fit.
the Sahaba looked at him they said, if that body is used for the sake of Allah, meaning to go to the bathroom,
and the professor says, What about going to work also, and making hella money to provide for his family? It's also for the sake of Allah.
So can have that intention.
Okay, going back how many prizes so far? Number one.
This is like a class I have to quiz you are not just here just to entertain me, right? So you have to go home with the message. So attending a gathering like this, what do you get? Number one, surrounded by angels angels do awesome love first of all for you. And they're also in a love for mercy for you is equal or is it me?
Lots of echo. Can you ask Holly to come in and just that because I don't feel it's that much clearer, right? If somebody can call her.
Allah subhanaw taala. Showers and encompasses the audience with his mercy. Number three, what is the lottery? No. Sakina
you know the word Sakina they translate that it's not your aunt or your sister Sakina right.
Sakina means strong quality.
Or that serenity that you feel in the heart, the peace of the heart, and peace of the mind that everybody in the world today is looking for.
Right? Some people, I know some people who are not millionaires, they're billionaires, but they're not happy.
They're lacking that. Second,
you don't have the peace of mind, and the peace of the mind.
So that's number three.
When we sit here, what happens to us
are not fighting. We have that peace. Why? Imagine if we gather together and we watch? Again?
Always the game is between two teams, right? So we'll be divided into two groups. And we'll be fighting.
you support the team and support the team. We will kill you today. Who's gonna win? Right? You know, people when they sit and watch that stuff, especially the kids know, we're gonna win. No, no, we're gonna win. You're not winning, just watching. They are the people who make the money. Making the fame. You're wasting your time.
Unless you're learning something.
Right. They have this deliberative, Patil nobody. Volunteer,
and exercise yourself and play.
He said, I'm saying.
So if we are watching something, you know.
And even if it's a movie stuck for a while,
no means that follow up. Do you watch movies? Sister follow? Okay. So what's gonna happen? People always agree. I like that actor. I don't like him.
Right? Even though you're looking at her anyway.
And you're watching nonsense.
Right? But again, people will disagree, we'll never have that Sakina but only in the house of Allah. We were sitting there reciting the words of Allah, learning them with the intention to act upon them. Then we get that Sakina.
Number four, it's the best of them.
With a Corrado Muslim, female.
Allah, what? I always share these two stories when I talk about this hobby, maybe, you know, some brothers have heard this from me before.
You know, I went to visit a friend of mine.
And I found like a stack of magazines the same issue.
And it's like, would you like to read a magazine? I said, I'm not a fan of this. But I didn't want to embarrass him. I said, let me do that.
a copy, flip through a booklet and he put it back. He said,
Did you read page five?
I'm sorry. I got the magazine again. Open page five.
Is that your picture? Is like?
Yes. How can we have noticed this first time when
he was so happy? Why? Because his picture was in the magazine.
And his name was there. How many people read that magazine? This one? myself? I have 50 copies of it. Right? And everybody comes he gives them a copy. You can keep it man.
So you can show to other people. Maybe I'll become famous or something.
Right? I want to see someone else. And so Pamela, he said we like to watch something I said
as long as it's something useful, why not?
And then he
he put like a tape in the DVD player.
And then there was like a short clip
of, you know, what's his name?
The Prime Minister before this one.
Stephen Harper. Yeah. So he was just like, opening a new place and like, you know, there were people around him.
Okay, so what's the point? Is it man, I'm gonna play the game. But watch carefully. I'm like, okay, okay.
The next time I was like watching the DVD back in the back
drown as it is that you like yeah man
who just in the background,
but he was so proud to be in the presence of the prime minister.
And he had the, you know, he made copies of the video.
Sir, I'm saying, Why am I saying this? Why am I sharing this? Because the fourth prize of attending a holla like this
Did you hear that? A law will mention you by name above seven heavens now. Yeah.
Who am I?
To really deserve that?
But because of coming to a gathering like this, the porcelain said.
As the Hadith says, In the Colonia de Fini, FC. FC, Allah subhanaw taala said if you remember last 100 Allah, by yourself was Petra remember you? Subhana modan Kalani female in the home, the call to female in the room. And if he were to remember me in a gathering,
I would remember him in a garden better than this gathering, which is the gathering of the angels above seven heavens? Can you just close your eyes for a second and picture the fact that you are mentioned by name now by a law above seven heavens
will love you. If this is the only reward from coming to a gathering like this, that is more than enough
to be mentioned by Allah
mentioned your name is required to Allah. And Allah mentions your name in a gathering of angels.
This is the fifth one. Do you like to note?
Only two people said yes.
doesn't work that way.
Would you like to know it's too late.
You have to know my style inshallah. Next week, when I say would you like to hear it? I need to have a big Yes. Yes. with enthusiasm, okay.
When I go home or third Friday night, it's raining outside.
And by the way, it's Panama. I know there are lots of people who wanted to come and maybe it is not come because of the weather, but will lie. I'll give you the good news.
Allow me to difficult for you and despite that you can see here the word is doubled with Allah subhanaw taala.
Because Allah Subhana Allah Allah told us in the body
that the karma in a body de
If my slave draws close to me, a span that's Shem
I will draw closer to Him. One arm length
of a layer there on the cover up to a ban. If he wants to draw closer to me an arm length, I'll do two arms.
With the attorney MC, I say to her Allah, if he walks to me, I will run to him. Allahu Akbar does ilani does.
Allah, Allah isn't honey. Do you know what does that mean? He's in No need of anyone. But all of us need him. Despite that, that's how we treat us. So if you're coming to Allah, on a night when you're tired, when you had work when you had school, and it's raining outside and you do this, make sure that Allah subhanaw taala will double the reward for you.
so remind me inshallah at the end to give you the fifth one, if you don't remind me, I'm not going to give it to you. I know Zacarias here is going to remind me
please remind me at the end of salah and we want to limit it in sha Allah, please take all of the time. We started about 730
right. So inshallah we'll make it 45 minutes and 15 minutes for q&a and that's okay. So stop me inshallah at 815 so that we can do 15 minutes question and answers on the topic, if not of the topic and then we'll try to make it light every Friday inshallah, as long as I'm in the city, inshallah.
The second thing that I wanted to share with you is
people see a gathering like this, how do they react to that?
Some people say, Who's this guy? I don't know him.
I don't think I'm gonna benefit. I don't want to waste my time. Just go home and get some rest. read something.
So people are three when it comes to a gathering like this. And the person told us and Daddy, he was sitting one time.
And the gathering was sitting and three people came.
One of them
found a gap in the circle. So he sat down, he filled that gap.
Second one, he found no spot in the circle. See, felt shy to push people. So he said behind, the third one looked and he turned his back and he left.
So the prophets of Salaam said, shall I tell you the news of the three people and a guru can become a philosopher
Rasul Allah, please tell us, he said,
Allah, Akbar, Allahu Allah, The
first one was coming, rushing towards Allah, Allah reciprocated the same feelings with him. Allah gave him the same.
One method is about the stamina Love is the healer homing signal shy, and alesmith Allah reciprocated the same feelings with him.
As for the third row, he turned his back on the Las panatela turned his back on him.
This is how people react when it comes to seeking knowledge. Seeing a gathering like this, may Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the sincerity of intention.
And may Allah subhanaw taala. Look at us now. And if Allah looks at us, He will never punish us, He will never torture us.
So I decided to start the Tafseer of surah Yusuf.
And there are many reasons for choosing stories of
First of all,
Allah subhanaw taala describes or use of as a rational process. And this is the reason I start I decided some years ago when I was leading the Isola.
Allah describes us as the best of his stories.
And when we come to the eye, I'm going to explain why. Why is it the best of his stories. It's a lot of telling a story.
It has to be the best of the stories, but we're going to go in more details in shallow
seconds reserve is like an encyclopedia.
I'm going to use the surah
as a text, but every time something comes in the surah, when it comes to our key, the effect, I'm going to stop on explaining. It's going to talk about dreams, we're gonna stop and talk about the types of dreams. It talks about dealing with the children talk about parenting, and we'll see the dialogue between jacobellis and his son and the other sons
is going to talk about injustice, and how do we deal with that?
So let's talk about evil people. Lots of plotting bad things, can talk about that, we're gonna talk about shaitan. So he just think about something when I sat down for my PhD at the University, what I'm a professor
to think about a topic I choose to use if
that was the thesis of my PhD.
I jot down 300 themes, and there are so useful.
But just to give you like three or four now, but as we're progressing shala with the surah, you will notice that we'll cover so many things. Can you imagine talk about crisis management since
when the entire area at that time for seven years, they were living in a drought?
And there was a famine?
You suffer SLM taught us a lesson crisis management,
interpretation of dreams. Is it a science? Or is that a gift from Allah? subhanaw taala. And how should we deal with dreams?
Because we make lots of mistakes when it comes to that.
Okay, so there are so many issues that we're going to be covering
sort of useful
is the embodiment of patience until me
who amongst the audience needs to learn patience.
I wish I have more than two. Okay.
Dr. Brown problems in your life
have you been through hardships? Are you still going through hardships? Raise your hand.
Everyone should raise their hand. Right?
Okay. Sometimes one of the main questions that we start asking is why is this happening to me?
I pray seven times a day.
Depression in terms of a warning to me, man.
broden dummies guide me.
I even go for Hajj twice a year.
Can you do that?
Only once a right. Okay. The tourists, right? There's 100. Okay.
And you know, I give my zecca on a first Ramadan. And they keep going into hardships. Look, I think if I'm a Muslim, I should have a perfect life.
When I look at the non Muslims next door.
They have five kids with green eyes and green hair.
They have a nice house.
And I have two kids, one of them is disabled. Why mean? Have you heard this before?
Ally's answer Mr. User say why you?
Okay, let's get an answer you. Who are you?
Are you better than Yusuf Ali, sir?
You know, when the prophets of Los Alamos asked men, Accra munez
who's the most noble person in the history of mankind?
And when I heard this, I imagined the person I would say, me talking about himself, because he's the best, right?
So Pamela, he said, use
Kareem Abdul Karim Abdel Karim
laquan. No one can match us when it comes to lineage,
and nobility. Why? Tell me in history, who is a prophet?
and his father is a prophet. And his grandfather is a Prophet and his great grandfather as a prophet. It never happened. Except with you, sir. Yusuf Ali Salaam was a prophet who was his father? Yeah, whoa, Jacob, who's his grandfather? Isaiah is Holly, who's his grand grandfather, Abraham, Abraham is.
Now that you know this, and
this is the story of use of and we're going to deal with that inshallah, over a few months from now.
You will notice that he has been through a lot, even though he is the most noble person who lived on earth. What does that mean? means that this life is not perfect.
And this life is not the real life.
So when you go through hardships, remember that Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran, that the real life is
this one, give me evidence. So number 29, and number 64. Source the Lanka booth. And number 64. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, one
and indeed this worldly life is nothing
amusement, and playing.
And indeed, the real life is the hereafter. If they really know
who stayed in that fact. Hello. I'm not gonna say Somalia because I feel like I'm getting the nationality very soon.
Mashallah, I think I need to get the Somali citizenship before I get the Canadian citizenship.
Especially if you live in the south, right?
Okay. So talk to me who's stating that fact that the world is life is nothing but entertainment and play. And real life is the AHA. Do you believe in that?
You've no options. But to say yes or yes. Right? But how do we act?
When we go through difficulty in this life, while we're here, the more you know, you'll be the happiest person on earth.
The more you connect to the words of Allah subhanho, wa Taala, you will understand the meaning of your life. Otherwise, you might be suffering a lot.
And then you realize when it's too late,
right? How many times does Allah say that this life is a test? How many times in the forum? Do you believe that?
Theoretically, yes, but practically, when the reality hits, what happens? Why me?
Why is this happening to me?
I know man, I just pray Juma and I just like drive the car and then somebody crashes in my car. I even sometimes go out and somebody just like, did it. I'm not even driving it. Why?
So we need to understand that Allah Subhana Allah when he states facts like this. We need to take it to the heart and live by that
I'll give you three examples in the Quran.
When you read this article carefully, you should have recited you know on Friday right?
Allah subhanaw taala if you go through the A at six and seven
he's talking about the reality of this dunya he said in
all what you have seen in this word the life is nothing but ornament Xena decoration.
Children. Yeah, zerah. Allah is the same word. They are the ornament the children are the ornament of this life.
wealth. lol Barone zenithal had done it is a declaration.
Right? Tell me who went to the grave
with his money.
Even Cipolla, the shroud when they saw your body when they cover your body, that sharp doesn't have pockets. You can take anything with you.
this way, Alexander the Great when he passed away, he told them he said you know what?
When you're taking my funeral to the grave,
make sure that you extend my hands outside like this.
And you bring all my wealth and scatter it on the coffin. So people would see it like just like going away.
They said Why? He said that people might learn something, I came to this life. And I'm going to the grave with nothing in my hands. And all the money and the fame that I have made
is of no use now.
So like I said, alarm made everything in this life as just the ornament in
the zenith Allah, Allah, why did you create money, jobs, cars, houses, all of these, it's ornament. Either it would leave you or you would leave it behind.
That was my last post on the Facebook page. I said everything in this life, either leave it or it will leave you.
So let your heart be attached to Allah. Allah said Lina
San Juan Salam Allah so what do you take with you out of this life? It's a test to that to see who are the best when it comes to their deeds.
Read in sort of the heart sort of insane
and number two, it just reiterate the same meaning. And number one Hello, insanity. Hello, Mina de la mcconchie makura that's the first day hasn't come a time when you were on existing.
Hello, sir. Yes, sir. Yes.
Okay, brother, how old are you?
18 Mashallah, two years older than me? Mashallah. So, let's say 20 years ago. What are your existing
So last thing in sunny, humorous country
hasn't come a time when you're not existing, yes. And then he said in Huracan al insana will not have a thin margin, and he summarized the entire purpose of your life in the coming.
It looks like a word but an Arabic it's a sentence. It says inevitably it's what it's a word. But you know how we translate this into English so that we test him or her
so luckily to you and me out of a piece of blood, that's not fun.
You know, when the sperm meets the egg, it makes like that note for a piece of blood will lie if you see it, it's disgusting. That's our beginning.
And then now when we walk on earth like it'll walk Mashallah you don't even talk to people you think highly of yourself. Look at me
so again, Alaska it's a test we didn't sort of remove so number 67 and number two, after the lesson number one tabarrok Allah dbrt hilman exalted is the one whose hand is the Dominion the control of everything right? Well who Allah
he's the only one who can do everything he can do something I can do something but I can do everything but it's only allow can do everything right. Then I said, I love the holler can mount the same meaning of sorts of data. He created death. Yes, this is a creation.
When I say 20 years ago, you will not hear so you're dead. You're not existing. That's Adam.
Right there Allison was one higher really brought you to life.
Why? Lia below come and correct me because I'm gonna say it wrong. A Yukon XL Rama, correct.
Is it extra mela? Is it the quantity of the deeds or the quality of the deeds.
So as anomala so what's Rama Rama Hassan. It has two conditions.
Plus, and metabo. If lost means you do only to please Allah. Mustafa means you do it. The sooner the way though, the way of the prophecies are not the way back home. That's Ahmed Hassan, if you want to accept that from you.
So you have to do it only for the sake of Allah because Allah does not accept our partner your intention. And you have to do it the way of the prophecy lesson. You need to ask, how did the process lm get married? When there's a funeral? How would he act? When he buys a house? What does he do? When he sells a house? What does he do? When he chooses a wife when he chooses, you know, education for
whatever, you know, print that is at the beginning of Fourth of July, and put it in front of you all the time.
So number 49. And number one, who does the law say?
I told you in the hobo today, right? When you hear Yeah, you're Latina mo you have to listen carefully. Because Allah is calling you.
Can you imagine
somebody have a phone?
can use your phone for a second.
if somebody calls me right now.
And you know, sometimes, you know you have so many numbers, some people you like so much. Some people like when you look at the screens.
Right? So imagine now if somebody calls me and I love the person who's calling me Do you think I'm gonna hesitate to pick up the call?
And how can you tell that I like the call once I look at the screen, I'm gonna
Would you like to finish the call?
No. Right? Cuz he loves the color.
Can you imagine? There's a law called us 89 times in the Quran.
And he told us when he calls you need to pick the call.
Otherwise, something wrong is going to happen to your heart. Read in so number eight. And number 24. Social unfair. And number 24 Allah, Allah says
and when you hear this say
I wish to be a true believer. He said his theurgy boo
Lima yo he come, Allah Akbar.
O you who believe.
Answer the call of Allah. Because whatever Allah calls you
is going to bring life to your heart.
Is that clear?
Your heart will be alive once you're connected to the words of Allah. Otherwise it's dead.
So the idea that I wanted you to print out and put in front of you to make sure that your deed is accepted by olalia, glaucoma, Kumar, Salama, masala is our number one source of federal What does the law say in this ayah?
led to the moon
meaning or you will believe do not put anyone in front of Allah and His messenger. Meaning before you do anything in your life, ask the first question. Yeah, Allah. Would you be pleased with that? If the answer's yes, proceed to the next question. If not stop there.
I'm going to get married. Excellent.
Okay, what are your criteria? What are you looking for? A man I'm looking for beauty like everyone. That's wrong.
Okay, what about wealth? That's wrong.
What about lineage Akira family? That's wrong. So now, tell me
issue practicing Islam or not.
So when I explained this one time, one of the brothers misunderstood me.
He called me from Toronto. And at that time, I was teaching at the University of Calgary and I was living in Calgary. He said, Dr. Blair, I have a problem. I said, What is it? He said, I found a practicing system. hamdulillah. She has Dean. I said, That's not a problem. That's the one they should go for. He said, No, listen, the problem is, she's also beautiful.
And I'm like, what's wrong with that? You said, you said the money that went on with the dean. I said, I hated it should be the priority should be number one. Everything else comes second. Did I say she has to be practicing the deen. But she has to be the ugliest person on earth. I didn't say that.
What do you put words in my mouth?
You said I'm saying
she's also wealthy. I said, That's not bad.
As long as she has the dean first.
You see, I'm saying, but if you marry her for her beauty, it will go away after some years. And if you might have for her money, the money comes and goes, we make money. But money does not make us. And if you marry her for her family, the family is not going to live forever.
This is why the dean will always be there.
And I always say there is external beauty. And there is internal beauty, then turn of beauty will come because of the practice of the dean, because it will produce a lot. And this one you need to deal with.
But unfortunately, many of us sometimes we focus on what we focus on the looks. But the looks go away.
Am I right? All right.
Think about that.
we're talking about why did we choose to use it right. And I took you into long journey into so many things as an introduction.
So we're going to be learning a lot from Surah, Yusuf.
And today before we start the surah. Since I still have
seven, eight minutes.
I'm going to give you a historical background,
about the reason and the time of the revelation of surah Yusuf so that he can live that in the history of Islam.
Number one, when was the surah revealed?
There is nothing definitive Miranda would say on that day on that night on that month, but most of the scholar says it was revealed towards the end of the 10th year of the mission of the processor lab. Let me repeat this again.
It was revealed towards the end of the 10th year of the hijra. Sorry, did I say hedger? I'm taking it back, the better the mission of the processor now. Why am I making it? Is there a difference between both of course because how long is the entire mission or birth of the person? How many years
Oh, he said two
Hello. Yes. 23. Right, because he lived for 40 years before the revelation. And the revelation came at the age of 40. Right? And how old was the professor when he passed away? 63. So subtract 40 from 63. What do you end up with? 23 years right? How many years in Makkah?
13 years how many years in Medina 10 years. Excellent. Okay. So when I say that this surah was revealed towards the end of the 10th year of the mission of the bomb Salaam, so was that revealed in Mecca or Medina Mecca because it was still within the first 13 years. Right. And this is why we divide the Quran into Makayla Quran and Medina Quran, right? Whatever was revealed in Mecca is called Surah makia. So this surah is a meccan surah.
Okay, whatever was revealed after the professor emigrated to Medina is called Madani, like it's a Medina surah. Is that clear? So this surah is a mecca surah. And it was revealed towards the end of the 10th year of the mission of the person and so we know the answer now, right. Next question, what was happening at that time? What was the situation of the prophets of Salaam? What was the situation of the Muslims who accepted Islam at that time?
In fact, it was a very, very tough time. Very tough time.
Very tough time. I mean, they said that the persecution and the oppression of the Muslims reached its peak in Mecca at that point.
You know, I'm saying
so, the Sahaba used to come to the prep center and they say, Yes, well, we could have asked Allah Spanner to make it easy for us.
And kebabs and the Alon was sitting next to the Kaaba. And he said, aletheia, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Tara manaphy Don't you see what we're going through prophet of Allah. So I was being tortured by his master. They used to bring like, you know, the hot iron, and they put it on his back and he considers power, the flesh power law, like melting. Can you imagine and build
in an area called Albert Hall of Mecca, they used to, you know, put like, heavy rocks on his chest, and they will pull him you know, and the kids would be laughing at him in the scorching heat of Mecca during the day.
And nothing would come out of his mouth except a hadn't had. It's only one God.
Amar every answer, and his father Yes, sir. And his mother sumaiya. were under torture.
So Allah Bassett, Prophet of Allah, would you ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for us? Look with the professor and said to him, he said, in the regime of human cannot publikum can I be for you the old men, ciao, female.
Free Shakuni is fine. So my table I'm sure. For you my chatroom. avena like me, he will ask me.
What are your Java Delica andina, we're lacking the component to start you
said people before you
Muslims like you were accepted the dean at the hands of the prophets, they used to bring them and they will put the salt of the life in the middle of their heads and they will be cut into two halves
and then they will bring
combs and then they will take the flesh out of the bones
and they wouldn't give up their Islam.
But you're hasty people
look at look at the the level of oppression and persecution they were living at the point of time.
And two main things happened in the life of the professor Lam to tragic events happen to the professor
at the point of time
would you like to know them?
My time is over.
So we're going to be starting with this inshallah next week. Next Friday inshallah. You have to get used to my cliffhangers. Insha Allah because you need to be you know, you know what they do in the movies and the series To be continued. I'm gonna do this to you inshallah, because this is the best of his stories we're gonna live with. So I use it as if it's a movie
We will lights the best movie ever. And we'll learn a lot from it. But I promised you something gives a career reminds me.
See, so you have an assistant here as a career. Yeah, the fifth reward that we're going to get right. I'm going to delay this till the very end because we have 15 minutes for q&a, right? So keep remembering because I'll trick you inshallah, we're going to leave with that because it's a very, very hopeful message and I want you to leave with a hopeful message in sha Allah. So I'm going to open the floor now, but don't ask me about the cliffhanger Don't tell me what are the three tragic events okay, because this is going to be the beginning of next week in Sharla. But you can ask me questions you know about what I mentioned. I'm sure sometimes when I talk you know some some
thoughts come to your mind some questions come to your mind. Please do not hesitate and there is nothing called unimportant question. Don't feel embarrassed to ask a question. So we're gonna get 15 minutes for the q&a and then we're going to
eight 827 or 828 inshallah, you remind me to give the fifth gift that Allah gives us because of attending a gathering like this who's going to give me the first questions and sisters also considered questions. I think we have sisters here right? They can send questions Sharla if you if you if you give them a paper or something or they can send a young messenger from amongst them inshallah. Okay, who's going to give me the first question inshallah, number if you don't ask me. I have millions of questions. So I will embarrass you before you do it to miss Ybarra embarrass me. Okay, first question.
you can ask? Yeah, go ahead.
No, no, I said, you know, we're going to learn so many things. But I said, if I summarize sort of use of, in two words, I always call it a sobral. Jimmy, beautiful patience. And all of us need that. Right? All of us need that. Because if you know that a word of patience in the Quran, you know, that will be your your main goal in life, to learn how to be patient. I'll just give you since you're talking about patience, I'll just give you two of them. You know, when you when you read in Surah number three Surah Al Emraan. I a 146. Allah subhanaw taala says,
we'll love who you have busaba
Allahu Akbar, would you like to be loved by Allah? Learn patience. Indeed, Allah loves those are patient. So one of the reasons that we need to learn patience is that Allah loves the patient people. Right? Second one, it's a very beautiful one. It's in sort of a Zoomer. So number 39. And number 10.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in your first Swabian
Allah Akbar, indeed, the patient people will be rewarded by what, by going to Jenna right away without reckoning, I was gonna say, you've gone through a lot, and you were patient just go to general directly without reckoning.
That's one meaning. Some other scholars said the rider is up here means you know, the reward that you will get in general will be in abundance, like you'll have lots and lots and lots.
So either way, it's a beautiful reward again for patience.
Okay, so we'll learn a lot inshallah. Yes.
I'm not sure if I'm going to live to finish the race, Salah. So the brothers asking which we are going to go on right or left. So we're going like, you know, backward or forward and follow through. So, you know, sometimes I'm selective, you know, maybe the next would be just
when we finish the race, if you know why. I always have a strategy in mind. Because many of us memorize this, but we don't understand it.
Do you agree with me or agree? If you don't, I will embarrass you right now on the spot. I'm ready. I did this with the with with my students, as well as her.
You know, we had a conference, you know, and it was about defending the process of him. I don't even agree with the word. He doesn't need defense, because he's the best believer and a lot of others in the law, who therefore on the Latina Avenue, Indeed, Allah subhanaw taala defends the true believers. Allah even said in that cafe economista has, he was the main reason for that gathering that day was, you know, you know, the Danish cartoons that were published? It was because of that. They said, oh, we're gonna go to support the prophecy.
And then I gave them a very mind boggling, you know,
message that day. I said, Here is how you can support the problem. He doesn't need support. You know, you need to support yourself by following his sin. Okay, by doing what he used to do by cutting on his message, because you don't want to lost battle, I said and so number 21 SoTL ambia 107. Allah subhanaw taala says, we're
La lemmie Mohammed we have not sent you except us. Mercy. For who? The Muslim in
the moment in
the UK in Lille Morrison in the Kennedy in Northern Ireland mean
for everyone, for everyone, right? How come through us and him for everyone, and he passed away more than 1814 centuries ago.
Because you will have to continue the message.
You will have to, you have no option. Give me evidence from the Quran and the sooner.
So you said that we're studying. So it was a 108? Allah subhanaw taala says, pull heavy he said ye o Mohammed say to them, this is my way, what is it?
I invite people to the way of Allah, Allah abasi based on knowledge, and our money turba Annie I and everyone would follow me, are you a follower of Mohammed? So by virtue of this, I are commanded to do thou
because he passed away. But I'm not a scholar. I'm not a public speaker who told you you have to be
the best our is just be a Muslim.
act as a Muslim outside, people will come to Islam.
I can give 1000 lectures and it's not going to move the hearts of one person. But you can do a little act of kindness outside as a Muslim, and 10 people will come to Islam.
And this is how many people came to Islam at the time of the Prophet Salaam. And today
I'm going to share lots of stories inshallah, in our Tafseer from real life inshallah. But what I'm saying is, according to the Quran, we are commanded and according to the sooner the person said, belly who
share at least one ayah from what I taught you.
Don't you even know Al Fatiha seven is?
But the problem is
we memorize sometimes with our understanding.
Right? And that's how I challenged them that day.
I said, You're coming here to defend the prophecy.
How? I saw one of you on the way here. He was smoking. If the promises of them were to meet you now, would you say canceled him? With the cigarette in your hand?
Would you put in your pocket?
How would you react when you see him? You can run away?
You see? You're gonna smell like smoking? Would you hug him? The answer was the smell.
I said if he were to visit you at home now, how long should he wait? In front of the door until you fix the mess inside.
Right? You hide the shisha.
You turn off the TV that has bad stuff. You go to the teenagers. And you take away all the celebrities pictures.
Right? You hide the albums that they listen to.
Right? If he's gonna say what is your beard? Why don't you follow my son
even in your appearance, something he can do?
So what I'm saying is, the process alone does not need your help.
You need to help yourself by following him.
And I said the least thing if you want to share the book of Allah, because they were like 6000 students
and all of them memorize the Quran because if you are a student,
you memorize the Quran by junior high.
And then you revise it in high school, and then you revise it for a third time at the university.
So I said you know what, I'm going to recite a surah right now. And I dare you all, to explain the meaning of one word
go for it.
Right? I said okay, let's go. Source number 100
was the number of this world
it's called the idea
and I started reciting that surah while idea to Baba ha, fell Maria de cada fell movie to sober for a thorough nappy Napa assault on Abby Gemma in
I didn't even continue. I shouldn't stop while at the etapa ha, what does that mean? Sounds like Chinese.
I'm talking to Arabs.
I'm not talking to anyone else. I was talking to Arabs who memorize the Quran.
This is a source that we memorize. It's just
you see why I choose that because the moment you understand what you're reciting
it will be very, very tasteful.
And I'm saying
you can never feel the sweetness of the Koran. Unless you understand then you can enjoy the Quran.
You know, I'm saying
you know, there was a brother who converted to Islam.
And, and, you know, we were in Edmonton and a normally bring a party from Egypt is very Mashallah motivational, inspirational. And his recitation and, and he was leaving the salon, I was praying, and I was crying, because he was reciting sort of haka. And sources and talks about the day of judgment was going to happen. People received the record in the right hand, left hand and I was so much, you know, in tears, and he didn't understand what's going on, because he doesn't know. Right? So after the salaah was over to the left here, he asked me
he asked me,
Why are you crying?
I said, because I was living, and I was picturing the eye that were recited. And when the process I'm used to recite the Quran, and lead the Salah can be alone. Can you smell ibuka he saw it as emergent.
They used to hear a sound when the professor lamb cries while he is like leading the Salah. Like that, you know, when you have a pot of water on the stove, and it's boiling. He could hear that. And sometimes he will cry so much so that he could not continue to get
today somebody, you know, stopped me. I think he was joking. He said, Don't come next Friday.
Like I said, Why? He said because you made me cry in the football.
I think he was joking.
You know what I'm saying?
I mean, it's, it's, it's something that you should thank Allah for.
If you cry because of the Quran, or because of listening to a reminder, from the Quran to the sun, you know why? That's a sign that you have a living heart
otherwise will lie if your heart does not respond, it's dead.
You know, he remembered the ad that I cited in sort of unfair and number 24 yada yada Dina Amano is the G boo lilla he was apostoli A Da Da Kuma you hear alarm mentioned after the heart while I'm on Allahu Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala sometimes makes a barrier between you and your heart.
So if the Quran does not inspire you, and make bring tears to your eyes, trying to find yourself a heart because your heart is that this word hustle boss used to say try to find your heart in three positions. Would you like to know them?
Men, such as two minutes for the last thing that I promised you. So remind me This is the second cliffhanger for next time inshallah. So to conclude, inshallah, because I promised to finish at 830 I promised you the fifth gift that you get out of a gathering like this, would you like to know it?
You see, I have two questions from the sisters right? should have brought them earlier.
Would you mind if I just take this Chalabi because I feel bad not answering their questions.
I get easily frustrated.
I don't know, what's that and I try to be calm, but it's hard. What's the best way to practice patience? That's a 10 hour course inshallah
I cannot answer this in one second. But basically, very briefly in sha Allah, the prophet SAW Selim said, if you have issues with anger, the first thing you need to do is when you get angry, go ahead and right away and make will do. Even if your husband is fighting with you. And he lost it say, Honey, you know what the process I'm used to make, although when he's angry, who's gonna go and make Kudo? First you, me, I'm going to go first. Run away from him.
You know, and take your phone with you. And you know, you can just like, you know, check your posts on Facebook, you know, do something for about five minutes or something, and then come out and look, is he still angry? You know, otherwise, just go and take a shower, just like leave him until he comes down. So the first thing is, anger comes from shaitan. And shaitan is made of fire. Nothing puts our fire except water. So just make
the proper solemn also said, if you're standing sit down,
you're sitting down, just like lay down, changing the position, makes it easier. You know, one of the best strategies that I showed you, Ilana taught us change the topic.
There was a tense situation between her and the professor salon. And she went out without his permission, and the person was really angry. Then in the middle of the talk, she said, the officer said, like, you know, when I came back home, jabril came to me and he said, Go and to the graveyard, and ask Allah for forgiveness for the people who passed away.
And then, you know, I said, so when I go there, Prophet of Allah, what should I say? He said, You should say a salaam aleikum. Me and he didn't say, Hey, hold on here. If trying to change the topic, let's finish the fight first.
No, he wouldn't do that. But you know, as husband and wife, we're going to have, you know, of course, it's all about marriage and how to maintain, you know, a successful marriage inshallah, but what I'm trying to say here is that sometimes, like, you know, if one of you the husband, or the wife, you know, is angry and the other person is really angry, try to change the topic. And you as a husband, if the wife tries to change the topic, please act like the professor silom. He just accepted that. You cannot discuss something when there's a heated argument because you know, what's going to happen is exactly what happens I get a phone call she
he said the law, but will lie he was very angry.
Does this happen a lot? Yeah. And then they try to influence the say they say will lie. He was really mad before I even give the answer. So why are you asking me them become a Mufti?
And this is the problem today. I always say how many Muslims do we have today? 1.8 billion Muslims. Amongst them there is 1.9 billion most is.
And people come to ask you and they give the fatwa while he was angry sister. Let me talk. You asked the question. Give me the chance to speak.
Because I am there is three degrees. I need to know exactly what's the situation because they know Hadid and they want to force the new law, philosophy of law. There you go. So it does it's not valid, done under Mufti. So what do you come and ask me then? He was angry. Have you ever heard a couple who were fighting?
And then just in the middle of the fight, they come down? And the husband just got out of float out of his, you know, bank and he said, Honey, I love you. You're divorced in shalva. Have you ever seen that scenario? Normally, somebody is gonna divorce somebody when they're fighting, and they're angry, but what type of anger is it?
So these are what good
things to do, but like inshallah, we're gonna be living with the sort of patience for a few months inshallah. So don't worry, we're gonna be learning that what's the difference between being patient and being passive?
Okay, these are like tough questions. You know.
There's a big difference, of course, like being passive is is like a negative attitude, right?
But when I try to stop something bad from happening, I'm not being passive. When I avoid a situation that's aggravated and escalated, I'm not being passive. That's not being passive.
You know, when somebody is sitting next to someone who is like, getting mad, and listening to them without responding, that's not being passive. That's being a good listener.
You know, sometimes
Some men they know exactly how to provoke their, their wives, by giving them the silent treatment. She's gonna be talking and he's like,
tell me when you finish inshallah you might even go texting.
Are you listening to me? Yeah.
Okay, done. Okay. So what do you want? I've been talking for half an hour. And I told you the problem. I know you're asking me What's the problem? That's being passive.
Okay. But if I'm listening, and I'm giving you my full attention, and after you finish, I'm saying, You know what? We have the kids around, we cannot discuss this in front of the kids. Can we talk about this later? That's being wise. That's not being that's not ignoring her. That's not being passive, that's being wise.
And then you say, you know what, you're really angry now. And you're not yourself. So you cannot make a decision when one of us is mad. Can we talk about this later on? That's not being passive.
Okay. So, we need to understand this the other question is, is turning away or
Id I really cannot read the question. So if if the person can see me or something because I cannot read the question, let me finish in sha Allah with the promised
fifth gift and price from Allah subhanaw taala so that you will begin inshallah, next Friday, hopefully there will be no rain. And the process alum told us Adela lol hydrographer la, if you guide someone to do something good, you get the same reward like them without diminishing anything of the reward. So if you bring one or two or three with Yun Chao, which I'm sure that he can do that, you will be getting the reward of three or four or five, whoever will come in sha Allah. Okay, but the price is the following. At the end of this gathering, Allah subhanaw taala would say poor woman foreign welcome
to come hacer la la vaca leave this gathering with all of your sins, being turned into good deeds and allowed forgive you. Allahu Akbar, you know this, you know, the Hadith that I'm just quoting the last part of it. The angels would say yeah, Allah, there is someone amongst them who was not coming to the halaqa he would just come in because there was somebody in the hopper and he wanted something from him. So he had just came and waited for him allowed to home one home one is Bobby him Jerry Sue, whom we should have offered to lahoma as long as he's attending with them, he know he will be also included in my forgiveness. So bear witness I will forgive him or her to inshallah. So Isn't
So again, at the very end, and shall I thank you so much, even though it's raining even though the weather is not that good, but inshallah
May Allah subhanaw taala reward you?
How many prophets were there 124,000 124,000 prophets and messengers across the history of mankind. 315 of them are messengers and prophets, because not every prophet is a messenger, but every messenger is a prophet. So being a messenger is something harder than a prophet. For example, Moosa is a messenger and a prophet. But Harun is a prophet who was following the same message of masala Salah. So basically the question is, how many prophets you know, across the history of mankind 124,000 Prophet Muhammad Salah was the last, okay, we have 25 only mentioned by name in the Quran 25 only mentioned by name and the Quran, but there was 124,000 of them. 315 of them are messengers and
every messenger is a prophet, but not every prophet is a messenger.
