Hope tonight in sha Allah, that all the brothers and sisters who are present will relate to this story and will benefit inshallah, to Allah. And then we'll pass on this information to others who are not with us here tonight. So without any further introduction, I will begin the story.

00:05:22--> 00:05:26

One night, the Merciful loving mother went to sleep,

00:05:27--> 00:05:42

only for her sleep to be interrupted by a scary dream. In her dream, she saw a woman who came to her and say to her, when your son turns 18, he will die.

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

She woke up terrified from this dream that she had just seen.

00:05:48--> 00:06:25

She decided to keep this dream, a secret, buried deep inside her conscience, and never told anyone about it until her son turned 18. And he went beyond 18. And he became 19 years of age. She then breathed a sigh of relief, and then decided that she should share this dream with one of our close relatives. She told her that she had seen such and such a dream, and that 18 years had gone by, and that nothing had happened to her son.

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

Around this time, the father of this youth, this young man, whose name was oma, he called out to his son,

00:06:38--> 00:06:48

Abdullah. So this is the real life story of one. Abdullah bin Omar benina.

00:06:49--> 00:06:56

He He is from an array from a hacker army family. He is of Yemeni descent,

00:06:58--> 00:07:14

but lives in more than de mcgillicutty, Serbia, Saudi Arabia. He was born into a religious and a respectful family. This young brother, he lived just like any

00:07:16--> 00:07:23

any one of his age group, moving to and forth between his home and school.

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

When he became a youth

00:07:28--> 00:07:32

he befriended a group of friends that introduced him to smoking.

00:07:34--> 00:07:47

Now, this news, this information that he used to smoke, it got to his father, it reached his father. And he became very upset. He called out to his son,

00:07:48--> 00:07:57

Yama, hell to the Finn or Abdullah. Is it true that he smoke? Abdullah says,

00:07:58--> 00:08:14

I don't smoke. And so the father says to him, axiom swear by Allah, that you don't smoke. And the young man without any hesitation, he swears by Almighty Allah that He doesn't smoke.

00:08:15--> 00:08:23

But deep in his heart, he knew that he was lying. So his father say to him, Tyler Lockwood,

00:08:24--> 00:08:34

his father say to him Kesava la hora betech, in contact to the when May Allah break your neck if it is true that he smoke

00:08:36--> 00:08:55

and this curse, it went by just like many other courses that are pronounced by parents, against their children wahaca alone. And this is a grave mistake that is committed by parents, when they cause their children.

00:08:56--> 00:09:16

Whenever you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know her and he had to do and why did Allah whether the for the Messenger of Allah, he has forbidden that a parent should invoke Allah scars or should make a supplication or a curse against the children. I love her and to see the outward

00:09:17--> 00:09:34

agenda for when a parent pronounces a curse. It is a prayer. It is a supplication and sometimes the parent doesn't know. it coincides with the time when Allah answers the prayers, and it goes directly to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

So this father aroma, he made this curse on his son.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

But he did not know that this curse is tougher at Elijah with sama that it went all the way to the heavens will foot the hekla bourbon aegir back to our Sangha and the doors of the heavens were open for this cars.

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

lol lm well an lm one n o mozzarella, not defy the new, nor the Son nor the mother. The display this case had gone and had been accepted.

00:10:17--> 00:10:25

The scene in which Abdullah declared his innocence was over. And so that night, Abdullah went to sleep,

00:10:27--> 00:10:59

only to be woken up by his father for selection fudger Abdullah says, today I have to be listed. I pretended that I was waking up. So malaman sort of unguided in a Masjid, or to the Anam. When I was sure that my father had left the door and he had gone to the masjid, I decided to go back to sleep was taken to bear their hair, Lily, hackable madrasa and I only woke up at the time when I have to get get ready and go to school.

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

Abdullah, however, he never used to go to school. He and his friend had come up with tricks. And so he would lie to his parents that he was going to school. But together with his friends, they would go to different places in the city, and they would hang out together. But to school, he never went. And so this day was no different from the other days. on that particular day, they decided to go for swimming. And so they went to one of the city's pools, the city of Rio, and they decided to go for swimming.

00:11:39--> 00:11:57

Abdullah says that when he was ready to swim, he went up the diving board, three meters up from the swimming pool, and then he decided to take a plunge. He decided to dive into the, into the pool. He says

00:11:58--> 00:12:05

as soon as I entered the water, and my buddy came into touch with the pool. He said

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

inherit Halla.

00:12:09--> 00:12:18

Just me kulu Allah Kabati, I felt the whole weight of my body, piling the pressure on my neck.

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

He says, submit to for karate for karate Raka batty title man.

00:12:27--> 00:13:10

I could hear the breaking sound of my neck. As I took a plant inside the water filter that came to him or her that whatever led at that moment of time I remembered the cars that was pronounced by my father. Allahu Allah. The life of Abdullah venema is about to change by Allah decree. underneath the water. He says his whole body was piling pressure on his neck. And consequently he broke three bones from his vertebra. Abdullah says that underneath the water, he was struggling to hold his breath.

00:13:11--> 00:13:23

And for five minutes that he was holding his breath underneath the water. His whole life started playing in his mind like a movie. Everything that he used to do, he says

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

15 minute mount

00:13:27--> 00:13:39

Leanna Neelam aka Tim Shea and he says that I fear to die in the state. For I was unrestrained. As a young person, I used to do everything that I wanted.

00:13:40--> 00:14:31

At the same time, I took an oath by Allah and lie to my father. And I used to smoke. And I used to do all kinds of things, he says is all the events were playing in my mind. I remember that unique event. When I was a little kid. I would pass by an old woman who would be sitting on the street and bag and then I would give her some money. Anything that I could spare from my pocket money, I used to give it to her. And she used to raise up her hand and make a dog for me. And then he says, what are the cat two females that occurred? And then the Vienna sallallahu alayhi wasallam upon mankind pseudocolor Amina dunia La ilaha illAllah, the halal Jenna and then I remember the Hadith of the

00:14:31--> 00:15:00

Messenger of Allah, Whosoever whose final words in this life is La ilaha illa Allah He will go to Jenna for Berkeley to tempt him ob shefa de la ilaha illa Allah, He said I was trying to whisper to myself that you know in the law, and the need there was water all this time, and none of his friends knows what is happening underneath there. In fact, one of his friends says that he left the pool he

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

went outside, and he smoked a whole cigarette. And he came back and Abdullah was still underneath the water. At this time they realize that their friend was in great danger. And so they quickly dived into the water, and they took him out.

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

As they were trying to save him. Abdullah was like a lifeless body.

00:15:24--> 00:15:34

This young brother that was tall, with a strong built athletic, he used to practice different sports.

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

Abdullah found himself

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

confined to a hospital bed,

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

and the doctors tried

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

to save his life.

00:15:48--> 00:16:00

And he would move between the hospital bed and the theater, and the doctors would cut him up and stitch him up again, and he goes back to his bed.

00:16:01--> 00:16:13

Eventually, after four years of spending his time confined to a hospital bed, and when they realized there was nothing they could do for him, they decided to take him home.

00:16:14--> 00:16:18

After four years, Abdullah found himself at home,

00:16:20--> 00:16:25

completely paralyzed from his neck downwards, up until his feet.

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

This brother, this young brother, who had so many dreams in life, and he had endless ambitions,

00:16:35--> 00:16:50

he became motionless in bed. Nothing moves from his body, except his tongue, his eyes and his heart, and the rest of his body is lifeless.

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

Abdullah found himself with no friends.

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

And as he was lying in bed in the state,

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

Abdullah

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

woke up to find himself alone with no friends. Those who instead would incite him against his parents, and make him not to go to school. Those who instead introduced him to smoking, those ones that told him that he should lie to his parents. They were nowhere to be seen. Abdullah was all alone.

00:17:30--> 00:17:34

Abdullah was asked about his wishes.

00:17:35--> 00:17:40

When he found himself completely helpless. What are your wishes

00:17:41--> 00:18:00

and Abdullah by Nima? He made three amazing wishes. And that is the first clip of the story that I want to share with you tonight. The story of Abdullah venema and the first clip, which is the three wishes of the Lavanya ama, please pay attention.

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

Hey,

00:19:12--> 00:19:13

finish soon

naturali was anticorrosion

00:19:22--> 00:19:24

Latina celtica de Lyonne militia

00:20:46--> 00:21:17

The three wishes that he had wished for was that he could prostrate before Allah subhanho wa Taala something that he couldn't do when he was in that state. And he remembers when he was young and healthy and full of life. He never used to praise Allah, just like so many young Muslims today who don't have time for Salah. But when something bad happens to them, that is when they will wish that they had given some time for Allah, and that they would have prayed for Allah.

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

So his first wish was to make sujood and never be able to lift his head from that sujood and that he would die in that state. His second wish was that he if he could open the must have the Koran and recite it. And many times when people would visit him, he used to ask them kafer Allah Campbell Quran, how is your relationship with the Quran, he says I still he and only by our cattle must have. He says how much I wish I could turn a page of the must have you people can do what I cannot.

00:21:58--> 00:22:18

And the third wish, he says is their own read. Or an on any other day. He could walk into his mother's room and give her a hug or kiss her appreciating his mother. This amazing mother

00:22:19--> 00:22:38

to our brother Abdullah venema when Abdullah talks about his relationship with his mother, it is a special relationship between a mother and her son. I've done let's say that I wake up so I wake up so many times at night.

00:22:39--> 00:22:55

She effectively became my hands with which I eat. She became my eyes with which I see she became a feet with which I walk she became practically everything for me in life.

00:22:57--> 00:22:57

His mother

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

is a very special human being to Abdullah

00:23:03--> 00:23:17

and so Abdullah in the second clip that I will show you relates his special relationship with his mother. So brothers and sisters pay attention to the second clip as well.

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

Good

00:29:25--> 00:29:28

And even when Abdullah was asked about his relationship with his father,

00:29:29--> 00:29:31

his father who cursed him

00:29:32--> 00:29:41

and what happened to him was as a result of his father's cars, he say that I will not permit anyone to criticize my father.

00:29:42--> 00:29:51

Whoever it is, if my father curse me, it is because of me and what I did, not because of my father,

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

and when Abdullah

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

found himself

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

completely paralyzed

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

In bed, unable to do anything

00:30:05--> 00:30:55

forsaken by his friends, and the only people who came to him, while the people who used to pray in the local Masjid. And so they would come to him and visit him in order to learn something from him, and to see for themselves, this young brother, who was so full of life, and then he ended up in that state, and he to Abdullah, he also benefited from those people who would come to him in the message from the messenger, and his whole life transformed. And he became a dairy a person in that state. He became a person inviting other people to Allah, and how many a young brother who came to visit him who used to smoke, anything that they smoke.

00:30:56--> 00:31:39

And after seeing him, they went back and they repented to Allah subhanho wa Taala. How many a person who used to disrespect his parents, when they saw our Dhamma they went back and they changed their lives. How many a person who had no time to open the door and they went back and decided to renew their relationship with the Quran, before a time comes when they would wish to open the Koran, and they would not get the chance to open the book of Allah subhana wa Taala. And so Abdullah used to give naseeha to people. And eventually Abdullah became a famous person.

00:31:40--> 00:31:52

And he used to be invited to give live talk shows on TVs, just like the one that he sold. And on one occasion, when Abdullah was doing a live TV show,

00:31:54--> 00:32:05

and there was an audience in the studio, and back home, millions of people were watching. And amongst the audience's that were watching from home, was a young sister.

00:32:06--> 00:32:09

And this sister, she became touched by the story of Abdullah.

00:32:11--> 00:32:19

And so in the talk show was over. She said to her father, and her mother, that I want to get married Abdullah.

00:32:21--> 00:32:53

Perhaps a person might think this was a decision that was taken in haste. She made a hasty decision. Or perhaps something was wrong with her. Maybe she was also handicapped, disabled, just like Abdullah. But no, this wasn't a decision that she had taken in haste. And no, she wasn't handicapped, or disabled like Abdullah. This was a young, beautiful sister, who had dreams just like any young person, her age.

00:32:54--> 00:32:58

And she had so much hopes in life.

00:32:59--> 00:33:38

But when she saw the story of Abdullah, and she became touched, she decided that she should get married to this young brother. And her parents try to discourage her that she shouldn't get married to this man. But she made up her mind. And through her mother, she convinced her father to accept this. And so they decided to go and visit Abdullah and see this person with their own eyes. And there are ups they say, lay seminara command center. Seeing is not the same as hearing.

00:33:39--> 00:33:46

When they saw I've done law, and there are the law is incapable of doing anything. He couldn't do a thing for himself.

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

She could have changed her mind.

00:33:50--> 00:33:58

But she became even stronger. And she decided that this was the person she wanted for the rest of her life.

00:33:59--> 00:34:01

And even her cousin brother.

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

He tried to

00:34:05--> 00:34:23

talk her father out of it and say that if you cancel this engagement to this young man, I will pay a million reals, which is the equivalent of more than 300,000 US dollars, if you cancel the engagement, and I get to marry the sister.

00:34:25--> 00:34:37

But this young sister, she had already made up her mind that she was going to get married to Abdullah Abdullah say to her on this occasion. She said to him, that if I get married to you,

00:34:38--> 00:34:49

my mother will come first. She will come second, she will come third. You will only be the fourth person or the fifth person in my life.

00:34:50--> 00:34:54

She could have changed her mind. But she decided to go ahead

00:34:55--> 00:34:58

and many attempts you would say to Abdullah

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

Abdullah

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

And who the biotic Lena three ryla Jonathan Alba sama. Oh Abdullah, I wish to hold you by your hand and be able to fly with you in general.

00:35:13--> 00:35:21

And so the two families agreed that Abdullah should get married to the sister. However, there was one obstacle.

00:35:22--> 00:35:25

This sister is a Cerruti national.

00:35:26--> 00:35:41

Abdullah is a Yemeni who lives in in Sarah dia with apartment with a residence permit. And the laws of that country it states that if you are an answer, Rudy, you cannot marry Rudy.

00:35:42--> 00:35:58

And so the scholars are in Manhattan and the scholars, they had to make sure they had to intercede with the authorities. And finally the authorities gave permission and permission was given to Abdullah to get married to the system.

00:35:59--> 00:36:02

And the wedding of Abdullah Bananarama took place.

00:36:03--> 00:36:28

And people came from all corners to witness this amazing wedding. People came from as far as Egypt, from Qatar, from Bahrain, from Kuwait, and others yet they watch this wedding as it was streaming live on the TV. And so the final clip which will conclude the story of Abdullah banana is Abdullah bananas wedding

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

This is minus C

00:43:18--> 00:43:22

to all the brothers who are here tonight and all the sisters Likewise

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

I know nobody's perfect.

00:43:26--> 00:43:27

But the truth is,

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

we will never be able to repay back the kindness of our mothers.

00:43:35--> 00:43:36

I know so many young brothers,

00:43:38--> 00:43:45

they have brought nothing to their parents lives, and in particular to their mothers lives except misery.

00:43:46--> 00:43:54

How many times they make them cry tears, and they make them feel helpless.

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

But I promise you one thing young brother,

00:43:58--> 00:44:05

that if you make your mother's life hell on this earth, then I give you this promise of Allah,

00:44:06--> 00:44:09

that Allah will make your life hell on this earth.

00:44:10--> 00:44:37

If you don't do your parents good and justice, then Allah He will deal with you. This is a promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala how many parents are in a state of despair and helplessness because of what their children do to them. Picture this. They brought you to this country because they wanted to give you the best in life.

00:44:38--> 00:44:55

They sacrifice the place that they were born in, that they grew up in, that they were used to. And they migrated here just because they wanted to give you the best opportunity in life. But when you came here, what did you do to them?

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

You tortured them tormented them.

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

turn their lives into misery. But Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:45:06--> 00:45:09

He was watching all along what you're doing to them.

00:45:10--> 00:45:18

And he had his ways of taking his revenge on people who disrespect their parents.

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

Try and picture the anguish of a mother,

00:45:23--> 00:45:26

a brother when I was in the city of Ottawa,

00:45:27--> 00:46:17

this is a brother who runs a travel agency. He told me that a Muslim mother migrated to this country with four of her children. She used to live in Serbia, which is a Muslim country, and their husband used to make good money. So when she decided to come here, her husband tried to discourage her. He told her, we don't need to go there. We have a good life here. We earn good money. Why do you want to go there? But you know what? her picture the picture she had of this place was, this must be Jenna, this must be paradise on this earth. And so she badly wanted to come here. She was stoned, all the mothers and the sisters, they're driving big cars. And at the end of the month, they make

00:46:17--> 00:46:23

money. And so she wanted to live this kind of life. In the back of her mind, this was freedom.

00:46:24--> 00:46:31

And so when their husband tried to discourage her and then work, she decided to make a dinner and she migrated here.

00:46:32--> 00:46:36

The brother, the young men, three boys and one girl.

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

The boys grew up so fast. They already teenagers when they came to this country. And then they decided to move to Edmonton.

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

They went to Edmonton.

00:46:50--> 00:46:53

And three of the boys got involved in drugs.

00:46:54--> 00:46:58

Two of them, they got killed in the same year.

00:46:59--> 00:47:05

The third one, he committed murder, and he's now serving a lifetime in prison.

00:47:07--> 00:47:08

As for the girl,

00:47:09--> 00:47:10

she became a prostitute.

00:47:12--> 00:47:14

What is this mother left with?

00:47:15--> 00:47:35

She goes to the nursery, the brother who owns the travel agency, and she gives him some money. She says brother, I just need a one way ticket. I came here with my children. I came here with my Dean, I have lost everything. I have no hope for life anymore. I just need to leave.

00:47:36--> 00:47:43

I remember I was in one of the massage it in the city of Minneapolis on the 27th night of Ramadan.

00:47:45--> 00:47:53

And people were praying to her Jude, and Amanda sends a written request. She says I want people to remember me in my door.

00:47:54--> 00:48:04

I came with seven of my children to this country. And today I do not have a single of my children with me all have scattered and gone.

00:48:06--> 00:48:34

Go to any Muslim home. It is a challenge in men regime or a book except except the ones that Allah has exempted with his mercy. And you will see and you will hear parents talking about the difficulty that they have in raising their children in this environment. When I was in Ottawa in Ramadan, a father inside the masjid in Ramadan, he was cursing his own children.

00:48:35--> 00:48:43

He had given up on them. And so all he could do was just curse them and call them all kinds of names.

00:48:45--> 00:49:02

Do you know one thing my brothers, I wouldn't blame the children entirely. The parents do. They have a big role to play. They have a great responsibility that they have shoulder. But they have not fulfilled that responsibility.

00:49:04--> 00:49:05

When they came here,

00:49:06--> 00:49:35

with this, with the mindset that this is the place to make money. We all have to accept one thing that people migrated and they came here simply because of dunya nothing else. That is a reason why people came here in order to make money. But in the process of making money, they lost everything. They lost their Dean, and consequently they lost their families.

00:49:36--> 00:49:39

So why blame the children only

00:49:40--> 00:49:41

you go to the masjid.

00:49:43--> 00:49:56

I prayed in the same message that I gave hope by your mama and MSG, this massive, amazing huge your messages. The message was completely full.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

So that's all for today.

00:50:01--> 00:50:40

As I took a plant inside the water, filter the character Hina her that whatever led at that moment of time I remembered the curse that was pronounced by my father. Allah Allah, the life of Abdullah venema is about to change by Allah decree. underneath the water. He says his whole body was piling pressure on his neck. And consequently he broke three bonds from his vertebra. Abdullah says they're underneath the water. He was struggling to hold his breath.

00:50:41--> 00:50:53

And for five minutes that he was holding his breath underneath the water. His whole life started playing in his mind like a movie. Everything that he used to do, he says

00:50:54--> 00:50:56

15 minute mount

00:50:57--> 00:51:09

Leanna Neelam aka dem Shea and he says that I fear to die in the state. For I was unrestrained. As a young person, I used to do everything that I wanted.

00:51:10--> 00:52:01

At the same time, I took an oath by Allah and lie to my father. And I used to smoke. And I used to do all kinds of things, he says is all the events were playing in my mind? I remember the unique event. When I was a little kid, I will pass by an old woman who would be sitting on the street and bag and then I would give her some money, anything that I could spare from my pocket money, I used to give it to her. And she used to raise up her hand and make $1 for me. And then he says, what are the cat two females that occurred? And then ebina sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon mankind pseudoscalar Amina Daniela Illa Illa Allah, the halogen. And then I remember the Hadith of the

00:52:01--> 00:52:46

Messenger of Allah, Whosoever whose final words in this life is La ilaha illa Allah, He will go to Jenna Ferber Quito, Tim Tim ob shefa de la ilaha illAllah. He said, I was trying to whisper to myself La Ilaha Illa underneath the water all this time, and none of his friends knows what is happening underneath there. In fact, one of his friends says that he left the pool, he went outside, and he smoked a whole cigarette, and he came back and Abdullah was still underneath the water. At this time, they realize that their friend was in great danger. And so they quickly dived into the water, and they took him out.

00:52:48--> 00:52:53

As they were trying to save him. Abdullah was like a lifeless body.

00:52:54--> 00:53:04

This young brother that was tall, with a strong built athletic, he used to practice different sports.

00:53:05--> 00:53:07

Abdullah found himself

00:53:08--> 00:53:11

confined to a hospital bed,

00:53:12--> 00:53:14

and the doctors tried

00:53:15--> 00:53:16

to save his life.

00:53:17--> 00:53:30

And he would move between the hospital bed and the theater. And the doctors would carry him up and stitch him up again. And he goes back to his bed.

00:53:31--> 00:53:43

Eventually, after four years of spending his time confined to a hospital bed, and when they realized there was nothing they could do for him, they decided to take him home.

00:53:44--> 00:53:48

After four years, Abdullah found himself at home

00:53:50--> 00:53:55

completely paralyzed from his neck downwards up until his feet.

00:53:56--> 00:54:04

This brother, this young brother, who had so many dreams in life, and he had endless ambitions.

00:54:05--> 00:54:20

He became motionless in bed. Nothing moves from his body, except his tongue, his eyes and his heart, and the rest of his body is lifeless.

00:54:22--> 00:54:25

Abdullah found himself with no friends.

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

And as he was lying in bed in the state,

00:54:32--> 00:54:33

Abdullah

00:54:34--> 00:54:58

woke up to find himself alone with no friends. Those who instead would incite him against his parents and make him not to go to school. Those who instead introduced him to smoking. Those ones that told him that he should lie to his parents. They were nowhere to be seen. Abdullah was all alone.

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

Abdullah was asked about his wishes

00:55:05--> 00:55:10

when he found himself completely helpless. What are your wishes

00:55:11--> 00:55:29

and Abdullah venema he made three amazing wishes. And that is the first clip of the story that I want to share with you tonight. The story of Abdullah by Nima and the first clip, which is the three wishes of Abdullah van Yama, please pay attention.

00:56:31--> 00:56:32

Hello, can you

00:56:36--> 00:56:36

hear

00:56:42--> 00:56:42

me?

00:56:46--> 00:56:49

Otherwise, the lateral Dolly was anticorrosion

Latinos eltek Abdullah and Han militia

00:56:57--> 00:56:58

Masada

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

Michelle,

00:58:16--> 00:58:47

the three wishes that he had wished for was that he could prostrate before Allah subhanho wa Taala something that he couldn't do when he was in that state. And he remembers when he was young and healthy and full of life. He never used to praise Allah, just like so many young Muslims today who don't have time for Salah. But when something bad happens to them, that is when they will wish that they had given some time for Allah and that they would have prayed Salah

00:58:48--> 00:59:27

so his first wish was to make sujood and never be able to lift his head from that sujood and that he would die in that state. His second wish was that if he could open the Muslim the Koran and recite it and many times when people would visit him, he used to ask them kafer Allah to combine Quran? How is your relationship with the Quran? He says I shall he and oh can leave our cattle must have. He says how much I wish I could turn a page of the must have you people can do what I cannot.

00:59:28--> 00:59:48

And the third wish he says is that on read or an on any other day. He could walk into his mother's room and give her a hug or kiss her appreciating his mother. This amazing mother

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

to our brother Abdullah venema when I've done a lot of talks about his relationship with his mother, it is a special relationship between

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

My mother and her son. I've done let's say that I wake up so I wake up so many times at night.

01:00:09--> 01:00:25

She effectively became my hands with which I eat. She became my eyes with which I see she became a feat with which I walk. She became practically everything for me in life.

01:00:26--> 01:00:27

His mother

01:00:30--> 01:00:32

is a very special human being to Abdullah.

01:00:33--> 01:00:47

And so Abdullah in the second clip that I will show you relates his special relationship with his mother. So brothers and sisters, pay attention to the second clip as well.

01:01:43--> 01:01:44

You need them

01:01:56--> 01:01:58

Milan,

01:06:33--> 01:06:33

hello

01:06:39--> 01:06:41

to my grandma, my

01:06:43--> 01:06:44

grandma my television.

01:06:54--> 01:06:58

And even when Abdullah was asked about his relationship with his father,

01:06:59--> 01:07:01

his father who cursed him.

01:07:02--> 01:07:11

And what happened to him was as a result of his father's cars, he say that I will not permit anyone to criticize my father,

01:07:12--> 01:07:21

whoever it is, if my father curse me, it is because of me and what I did, not because of my father.

01:07:23--> 01:07:24

And when I've done love,

01:07:26--> 01:07:27

found himself

01:07:28--> 01:07:33

completely paralyzed, in bed, unable to do anything

01:07:34--> 01:08:25

forsaken by his friends. And the only people who came to him were the people who used to pray in the local Masjid. And so they would come to him and visit him in order to learn something from him, and to see for themselves, this young brother, who was so full of life, and then he ended up in that state, and he to Abdullah, he also benefited from those people who would come to him in the message from the ministry, and his whole life transformed. And he became a dairy a person in that state. He became a person inviting other people to Allah, and how many a young brother who came to visit him who used to smoke, anything that they smoke.

01:08:26--> 01:09:09

And after seeing him, they went back and they repented to Allah subhanho wa Taala how many a person who used to disrespect his parents, when they saw Abdullah, they went back and they changed their lives. How many person who had no time to open the Koran, they went back and decided to renew their relationship with the Quran. Before a time comes when they would wish to open the Quran, and they would not get the chance to open the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so Abdullah used to give an A c hat to people. And eventually Abdullah became a famous person.

01:09:10--> 01:09:22

And he used to be invited to give live talk shows on TVs just like the one that he sold. And on one occasion, when Abdullah was doing a live TV show,

01:09:24--> 01:09:35

and there was an audience in the studio, and back home millions of people were watching. And amongst the audience's that were watching from home, was the young sister

01:09:36--> 01:09:39

and the sister she became touched by the story of Abdullah

01:09:41--> 01:09:48

and so when the talk show was over, she said to her father and her mother, that I want to get married.

01:09:51--> 01:09:58

Perhaps a person might think this was a decision that was taken in haste. She made a hasty decision.

01:10:00--> 01:10:23

Or perhaps something was wrong with her. Maybe she was also handicap disabled just like Abdullah. But no, this wasn't a decision that she had taken in haste. And no, she wasn't handicapped, or disabled like at Dunbar. This was a young, beautiful sister, who had dreams just like any young person, her age.

01:10:24--> 01:10:28

And she had so much hopes in life.

01:10:29--> 01:11:07

But when she saw the story of Abdullah, and she became touched, she decided that she should get married to this young brother. And her parents try to discourage her that she shouldn't get married to this man. But she made up her mind. And through her mother, she convinced her father to accept this. And so they decided to go and visit Abdullah and see this person with their own eyes. And there are ups they say, lay seminara command center. Seeing is not the same as hearing.

01:11:09--> 01:11:16

When they saw I've done law, and there are Delos incapable of doing anything. He couldn't do a thing for himself.

01:11:17--> 01:11:19

She could have changed her mind.

01:11:20--> 01:11:28

But she became even stronger. And she decided that this was the person she wanted for the rest of her life.

01:11:29--> 01:11:31

And even her cousin brother.

01:11:32--> 01:11:33

He tried to

01:11:35--> 01:11:53

talk her father out of it and say that if you cancel this engagement to this young man, I will pay a million reals, which is the equivalent of more than 300,000 US dollars, if you cancel the engagement, and I get to marry the sister.

01:11:55--> 01:12:07

But this young sister, she had already made up her mind that she was going to get married to Abdullah Abdullah say to her on this occasion. She said to him, that if I get married to you,

01:12:08--> 01:12:19

my mother will come first. She will come second, she will come third. You will only be the fourth person or the fifth person in my life.

01:12:20--> 01:12:24

She could have changed her mind. But she decided to go ahead

01:12:25--> 01:12:41

and many attempts you would say to Abdullah Abdullah and erhu the biotic Lena Tierra de la gente navassa ma. Oh Abdullah, I wish to hold you by your hand and be able to fly with you in general.

01:12:43--> 01:12:51

And so the two families agreed that Abdullah should get married to the sister. However, there was one obstacle.

01:12:52--> 01:12:55

This sister is a Cerruti national.

01:12:56--> 01:13:11

Abdullah is a Yemeni who lives in in Serbia, with apartment with a residence apartment and the laws of that country. It states that if you are an answer, Rudy, you cannot marry sir Rudy.

01:13:12--> 01:13:28

And so the scholars in metal harem and the scholars, they had to make sure they had to intercede with the authorities. And finally the authorities gave permission and permission was given to Abdullah to get married to the sister

01:13:29--> 01:13:32

and the wedding of Abdullah Bananarama took place.

01:13:33--> 01:13:57

And people came from all corners to witness this amazing wedding. People came from as far as Egypt, from Qatar, from Bahrain, from Kuwait, and others yet they watch this wedding as it was streaming live on the TV. And so the final clip which will conclude the story of Abdullah bin Yama is Abdullah Diana's wedding.

01:20:45--> 01:20:46

This is minus

01:20:48--> 01:20:51

two all the brothers who are here tonight and all the sisters likewise.

01:20:53--> 01:20:55

I know nobody's perfect.

01:20:56--> 01:20:57

But the truth is,

01:20:59--> 01:21:03

we will never be able to repay back the kindness of our mothers.

01:21:04--> 01:21:06

I know so many young brothers,

01:21:08--> 01:21:15

they have brought nothing to their parents lives, and in particular to their mothers nice except misery.

01:21:16--> 01:21:24

How many times they make them cry tears, and they make them feel helpless.

01:21:25--> 01:21:27

But I promise you one thing, young brother,

01:21:28--> 01:21:34

that if you make your mother's life, hell on this earth, then I give you this promise of Allah,

01:21:35--> 01:21:39

that Allah will make your life hell on this earth.

01:21:40--> 01:22:25

If you don't do your parents good and justice, then Allah He will deal with you. This is a promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How many parents are in a state of despair and helplessness because of what their children do to them. Picture this. They brought you to this country, because they wanted to give you the best in life. They sacrifice the place that they were born in, that they grew up in, that they were used to. And they migrated here, just because they wanted to give you the best opportunity in life. But when you came here, what did you do to them?

01:22:26--> 01:22:35

You tortured them, tormented them, turn their lives into misery. But Allah subhana wa Tada.

01:22:36--> 01:22:39

He was watching all along what you're doing to them.

01:22:40--> 01:22:48

And he had his ways of taking his revenge on people who disrespect their parents.

01:22:49--> 01:22:52

Try and picture the anguish of a mother,

01:22:53--> 01:22:55

a brother when I was in the city of Ottawa.

01:22:56--> 01:23:48

This is a brother who runs a travel agency. He told me that a Muslim mother migrated to this country with four of her children. She used to live in Serbia, which is a Muslim country. And it has been used to make good money. So when she decided to come here, her husband tried to discourage her. He told her we don't need to go there. We have a good life here. We earn good money. Why do you want to go there? But you know what? her picture the picture she had of this place was, this must be Jenna, this must be paradise on this earth. And so she badly wanted to come here. She was stoled. All the mothers and the sisters, they're driving big cars. And at the end of the month, they make money. And

01:23:48--> 01:23:53

so she wanted to live this kind of life. In the back of her mind. This was freedom.

01:23:54--> 01:24:01

And so when the husband tried to discourage handed then work, she decided to make a dinner and she migrated here.

01:24:02--> 01:24:05

The brother the young men, three boys and one girl.

01:24:07--> 01:24:16

The boys grew up so fast. They already teenagers when they came to this country. And then they decided to move to Edmonton.

01:24:17--> 01:24:19

They went to Edmonton.

01:24:20--> 01:24:23

And three of the boys got involved in drugs.

01:24:24--> 01:24:28

Two of them. They got killed in the same year.

01:24:29--> 01:24:35

The third one, he committed murder and his now serving a lifetime in prison.

01:24:36--> 01:24:40

As for the girl, she became a prostitute.

01:24:42--> 01:24:44

What is this mother left with?

01:24:45--> 01:24:59

She goes to the nursery the brother who owns the travel agency, and she gives him some money. She says brother, I just need a one way ticket. I came here with my children. I came here with my Dean

01:25:00--> 01:25:05

I have lost everything. I have no hope for life anymore. I just need to leave.

01:25:06--> 01:25:13

I remember I was in one of the massage it in the city of Minneapolis on the 27th night of Ramadan.

01:25:15--> 01:25:23

And people were praying to her Jude, and Amanda sends a written request. She says, I want people to remember me in my day.

01:25:24--> 01:25:34

I came with seven of my children to this country. And today I do not have a single of my children with me, all have scattered and gone.

01:25:36--> 01:26:04

Go to any Muslim home. It is a challenge a man regime or a book, except except the ones that Allah has exempted with his mercy. And you will see and you will hear parents talking about the difficulty that they have in raising their children in this environment. When I was in Ottawa in Ramadan, a father inside the masjid in Ramadan, he was cursing his own children.

01:26:05--> 01:26:13

He had given up on them. And so all he could do was just curse them and call them all kinds of names.

01:26:15--> 01:26:32

Do you know one thing my brothers, I wouldn't blame the children entirely. The parents do. They have a big role to play. They have a great responsibility that they have shoulder but they have not fulfilled that responsibility.

01:26:34--> 01:26:35

When they came here,

01:26:36--> 01:27:05

with this, with the mindset, that this is the place to make money. We all have to accept one thing that people migrated and they came here simply because of dunya nothing else. That is a reason why people came here in order to make money. But in the process of making money, they lost everything. They lost their Deen and consequently they lost their families.

01:27:06--> 01:27:08

So why blame the children only

01:27:10--> 01:27:11

you go to the masjid.

01:27:13--> 01:27:26

I prayed in the same message that I gave hope by your mama. And they messaged you this massive amazing huge Yama Juma The message was completely full.

01:27:28--> 01:27:30

So natural fudger today
