Do you want to stop

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


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

Holly Kitagawa.

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

How do Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:01:08--> 00:01:08


00:01:10--> 00:01:14

wakulla Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah na

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

OC Kumar FC taco la

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

y Sadie.

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

explains in Surah Al Emraan.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

So number 3133

00:01:59--> 00:01:59

it says was

00:02:03--> 00:02:08

rush, race compete with one another

00:02:10--> 00:02:11

for what?

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

The forgiveness of Allah subhana

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

wa genoten

00:02:22--> 00:02:30

for paradise, which is as vast as the heavens and the earth.

00:02:31--> 00:02:36

The last part that I said it has been preferred, has been promised for

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

those who have Taqwa.

00:02:42--> 00:02:49

And for the purpose of this football today we're going to talk about achieving the highest degree of this di.

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

D, which is as well here

00:02:57--> 00:03:08

and tombeau de la haka and Mecca Tara, fading them talkin Tara, for in Iraq, it is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you can see him

00:03:09--> 00:03:17

and if we all know for a fact that we cannot see Allah, but all of us know that he can see us.

00:03:19--> 00:03:27

But before we talk about sn, there is a level that we have to achieve before which is taqwa

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

and socata law.

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

There is a book

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


00:03:36--> 00:03:40

a person called Jose Addison

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

and the book is called

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

all what we need

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

to live a happy life.

00:03:53--> 00:04:03

What are the requirements of a happy life? And the man said there are three main things that we need if we want to lead a happy life

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

something to do

00:04:07--> 00:04:15

something to love and something to look forward to survive again Jose Addison in his book

00:04:17--> 00:04:28

what do we need to be the happy life he says there are three things something to do something to love and something to look forward to.

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

And Subhanallah

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

when you reflect on that

00:04:36--> 00:04:47

you will find that these are exactly the three things that are loss of Hana with Allah referred to in there is that I just mentioned that I started the hobo with

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

call Jose Addison Chiquita

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

Jr. and

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

he had a two

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


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


00:05:03--> 00:05:04


00:05:13--> 00:05:17

If you think about the first day that I shared with you last

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

Saturday, rush, this has something to do.

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

That's something to love.

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

This is something to look forward to.

00:05:40--> 00:05:50

So Panama, humans when they excel, and they understand the meaning of life, they write books today about things

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

Donna has revealed more than 14 centuries ago.

00:06:00--> 00:06:01

And you will be amazed

00:06:04--> 00:06:11

to know that some people in this life, they might have two of them, but they will never be happy.

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

Because they're missing the third one.

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

He showed us

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

takuna sorry.

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

Let me take an example those who are looking for retirement,

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

they have something to look forward to.

00:06:41--> 00:07:11

And they have something to love. But Suppan Allah, when they retire, because they have all the money that they need, there is nothing that they need to do, but look, but guess what, they feel that their life is meaningless. When they hit that age, and they feel that they have to sit down and do nothing, they will not be happy. So they will try to make plans, how to keep themselves busy, to give their life meaning.

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


00:07:28--> 00:07:29


00:07:33--> 00:07:33

look at

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

another example.

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

Some people,

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

they might have

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

things in their life

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

to do,

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

and they have things to look forward to.

00:07:57--> 00:08:09

But they have nothing to love. And these people suffer a lot. They will achieve supreme success in all aspects of their lives. They will make lots of money,

00:08:10--> 00:08:17

they will have everything but they only fail in one area, which is spirituality.

00:08:19--> 00:08:27

And they can see that their family is falling apart in front of their own eyes, people who are around them, they love them because they need the money.

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


00:08:37--> 00:08:38

love my

00:08:41--> 00:08:42


00:08:45--> 00:08:46

Valentina yesterday

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

for how I

00:08:55--> 00:08:55

won the jackpot

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

in a hierarchy

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


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


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


00:09:20--> 00:09:21


00:09:24--> 00:09:26

laces, Muslim.

00:09:29--> 00:09:36

Let's take the third example of people who will have something

00:09:37--> 00:09:43

to do and something to love. But they have nothing to look forward to

00:09:44--> 00:09:51

look at those celebrities. And those people who achieved fame and everybody's pointing at them.

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

And they're everywhere on the TV and in the magazines.

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

But so Panama look at the life

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

ended of their life.

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

They're just going to take

00:10:07--> 00:10:26

they're going to think about taking their own life and you will find that they commit suicide in a room in a hotel, because their life has become meaningless they achieved everything, but there is nothing to look forward to. There is nothing that they are living for after achieving all of this

00:10:30--> 00:10:36

formula they might have fallen, what are they? What accolades that he might have?

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

That you don't feel tired to him?

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

When I came home, he was brilliant.

00:10:57--> 00:10:57

Good day, my

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

name is Ella hamana with a salata.

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

Brothers and sisters, if we take this back

00:11:09--> 00:11:24

to the iron and the context that I wanted to start with, how can we achieve the top level of this theme because this thing is three degrees, Islam, the man and ESA

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

for caring

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

for dealers on

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

Islam for a man on fire sir.

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

And before we can achieve

00:11:38--> 00:11:43

we have to achieve taqwa. And this is why I started with this I was

00:11:53--> 00:11:55


00:11:57--> 00:11:58

Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

magnify Massara

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

when I

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


00:12:21--> 00:12:22

an agenda

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

so last

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

gave us that recipe for happiness.

00:12:38--> 00:12:40

Rush, this is something to do.

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

To the forgiveness of your of your master, that's something to love.

00:12:54--> 00:12:54


00:12:56--> 00:13:13

expansive which is equal to the heavens and the earth, this is something to look forward to. But for us to achieve that and to get to that we have to be amongst the Mottaki. And those have certain qualities have certain characteristics that allow us to pan out.

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

And this is how we should read the Quran from now on.

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


00:13:22--> 00:13:23

whenever he says

00:13:27--> 00:13:33

he's gonna always mention the qualities and these qualities some people today they say

00:13:35--> 00:13:45

no, it's not only the Sahaba it's for them and for us today, it applies all the time in every place to the Day of Judgment

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


00:14:09--> 00:14:10

So, Allah subhana wa

00:14:12--> 00:14:19

mentions what are the key and before I go on talk about the

00:14:20--> 00:14:21


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


00:14:36--> 00:14:37


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


00:14:42--> 00:14:45

many people has given definition

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


00:14:48--> 00:14:59

this means is to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala number two, to act upon the revelation that came from the Quran and the Sunnah.

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

Number three is to be content with whatever Allah has given you have health of a wife of a husband of a child of a job, the content.

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

What is

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

he to be ready for the day when you're going to live his life and you're going to have a meeting with Allah subhana wa.

00:15:23--> 00:15:24


00:15:47--> 00:15:50

walking on a thorny path.

00:15:51--> 00:16:04

If you're walking on a thorny path, what would you do? You will try to squeeze yourself and stay away from being poked by those thorns. So

00:16:05--> 00:16:14

is to make a barrier between you and Hellfire by staying away from the disobedience of Allah subhana wa Tada. That's the one.

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

So moving on now, to define what are the key. So when you do what you do, you're conscious of

00:16:26--> 00:16:40

your conscious, you're gonna meet with him, and you will be held accountable for everything. So I don't care. How many flowers would you buy for your wife? But I would care how would you treat her?

00:16:41--> 00:16:47

I don't care about the words, the minus words you say to the loved one.

00:16:49--> 00:16:53

But I would get how much respect when it comes to your life. You give them

00:17:17--> 00:17:21

give me this one. Okay, now it's working. It's working fine.

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

Enough, I'm in a hurry.

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

So we have to do

00:17:34--> 00:17:41

what we say. And we have to be only conscious of Allah when we do what we do only to please Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:51--> 00:17:56

If we want to reach, we need to attain the level of taqwa first one.

00:17:59--> 00:18:04

Allah subhana wa Taala explains in the next day an extra that I mentioned at the beginning of the football.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08


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


00:18:28--> 00:18:29

the people

00:18:30--> 00:18:43

are those who spend times of ease and times of hardship at times when they have lots of money. And at times, even when they have hardly the money enough to pay their bills.

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

This is to show Allah subhana wa Taala that you are wonderful.

00:18:49--> 00:18:49


00:18:50--> 00:18:52

in any fundraising,

00:18:53--> 00:19:17

when I do a fundraiser, I will go to the organizers and ask them who are the doctors who are the engineers who are the business people amongst the community so we can target them. But the last thing here No, not only the people with lots of money, even when you're struggling in your life, you show Allah subhanaw taala that you can you know why? Because the prophets Allah

00:19:20--> 00:19:21


00:19:29--> 00:19:29


00:19:35--> 00:19:42

forgiving one could be more than 100,000 dirhams. The professor have explained to us

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

in the whole unit.

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


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

the provinces,

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

how come that

00:20:05--> 00:20:29

would be more rewarding than 100,000? He said, because the person who gave $100,000 Homes is a millionaire. So this is nothing compared to his wealth, but the person who gave one has only to their homes. So how much did he give? He 50% of his wealth, even though he doesn't have much. That's the first quality of a puppy.

00:20:40--> 00:20:53

Those who swallow their anger, you know, when somebody comes and says something bad slanders you, standards, your mother say anything about your title your family, what will be your reaction?

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

talk back.

00:21:01--> 00:21:06

But Allah subhanaw taala said, there is a higher level, you can swallow your anger.

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

Guna shady Chico.

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


00:21:24--> 00:21:35

when the Prophet was asking, Who do you consider a strong person amongst you. This is somebody who cannot be put down a good wrestler, a good boxer.

00:21:38--> 00:21:48

A strong person is the person who can control himself or herself when they're angry. This is why this is one of the lucky ones.

00:21:57--> 00:22:18

And those when they are wrong, people they don't only swallow that either. They forgive people and they forget what they have done to them. There is a higher level. I know many of us here can forgive but they find it very difficult to forget to forget. But Allah said Now, if you want

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

to do

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

you need to do after two people. You have to exercise it here.

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


00:23:01--> 00:23:02

it's reported in

00:23:04--> 00:23:04

the profit

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

and loss of Hannah was

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

one of the people who used to forgive and forget.

00:23:20--> 00:23:20


00:23:22--> 00:23:24

Come to your master

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


00:23:32--> 00:23:33

because when you will be cold.

00:23:34--> 00:23:37

And because you forget you forgot your brother.

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

I was gonna call you

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

because of your iPhone, and I have an iPhone.

00:23:49--> 00:23:53

So we all need that. That's another quality.

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

Is this something beyond that level?

00:24:14--> 00:24:29

Not only you forgive and forget, but you do good to those around you. Allahu Akbar. That's a higher level. That's a higher level. And that's that's what we're talking about. The Sahaba do this.

00:24:30--> 00:24:31

Did the

00:24:41--> 00:24:41


00:24:46--> 00:24:47


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


00:24:53--> 00:24:53

a brief

00:24:54--> 00:24:55


00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Island Toby Allison

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

your loved one, for holding

00:25:11--> 00:25:34

this listen to this beautiful story of an Hasson Zen librarian, the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his maid was pouring water for him to make wudu. And the jug fell off splashing the water on the top of a lesson. And he could see that a person's face turned red, he's getting hungry for the

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

opposite effect.

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


00:25:56--> 00:25:56


00:26:11--> 00:26:16

we listen and obey once the man once the main said to him?

00:26:22--> 00:26:27

He said I was younger, but the main was very, very small.

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

This is I would forget

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

what you have done. But the guy was very smart. He was very smart.

00:27:01--> 00:27:05

He said, What could I do to you? What

00:27:06--> 00:27:13

could I do to you? The only sound I could do to you go you're free for the sake of Allah.

00:27:14--> 00:27:22

Allahu Akbar. This is attaining the highest level. But Allah didn't stop there. Listen carefully. A lot of you

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

who are here

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


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


00:27:34--> 00:27:35


00:27:37--> 00:27:44

Allah subhanaw taala did not stop there you will be amazed to know that there is one more quality of those who want to do it.

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:28:34--> 00:28:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:28:37--> 00:28:42

want to do? One of the qualities and the DNA one of the DNA that

00:28:44--> 00:28:50

when they commit a major sin, even if it was adultery, whatever they do,

00:28:53--> 00:28:57

wrong themselves. And the way we run ourselves is when we get so

00:28:59--> 00:29:02

what do they do right away?

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

What do they do?

00:29:28--> 00:29:33

Wouldn't you say us from your homes, when you say from your heart

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

talks to the angels. And he says to them.

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

When you say I ask for forgiveness, Allah subhanho wa Taala folks to the angels, and he would say to them, my slave knows that he has a master who will hold him or her

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

For what they have done, my angels bear witness I have forgiven him, I have forgiven her. That's what Allah would do. For some reason obey him.

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

Who else

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

would forgive sins? But Allah said

00:30:20--> 00:30:40

do Don't insist on committing the same sin again and again and again. Once they commit the sin they go back to forgive. Once they commit a sin again, they go back to mama would forgive but they don't mean it. They do not have time of weakness. They don't mean to disrespect Allah subhanho wa Taala along with john lemon holds me on

00:30:59--> 00:31:00


00:31:02--> 00:31:03

wa Salatu was Salam.

00:31:08--> 00:31:08


00:31:13--> 00:31:13
