spected elders and brothers in Islam, my dear brothers and sisters at home Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:18--> 00:01:44

Once again, it gives me great pleasure to be amongst you all in this Masjid. I think it's been three years now. And one thing I must say that coming to mustard Omar always feels like coming home. Firstly, because I was born in Leicester, in Leicester General, which is nearby, and secondly, because every year when I come I find more Zimbabweans here

00:01:45--> 00:02:08

so I can't help but feel the sentiments of actually speaking in our main lesson in Harare, which is the regional Masjid maybe some of us have visited it, towers environments we have come here. May Allah subhanho wa Taala assist you in settling? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the move, a positive move with no regrets. Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all

00:02:09--> 00:02:13

Eva and Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all responsible.

00:02:15--> 00:02:52

Now, just before moving along, we all know that we just commenced the day of Joomla. And as I like to make it a habit if I am speaking on the day of Joomla actually mind one in all the importance of this day. I'm sure I mentioned I mentioned this Hadees to you last year, but there's no problem in reminding one in all of this particular Hadith again, it is in Sahih Muslim a narration by Abu hurayrah Viola Han, whereby he gives cognisance or he mentioned something that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and in it true cognizance is given to the reality of this day. Now it's important we realize

00:02:53--> 00:03:11

the importance of the day of Juma because Allah subhanho wa Taala has given this oma and this oma alone, the day of tomorrow, no other oma has the luxury of having this day in there or during the week Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says of Allah Allah he

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

was he

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

was he

00:03:18--> 00:04:09

was matakohe Musa or two illa fionnula. Juma that the best day upon which the sunrises Now listen to the carefully chosen words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best day upon which the sun rises is the day of Juma on the day of Juma Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah created Adam le salatu wa salam. And on this day, the day of Juma Allah horrible is that he will gll Allah, Allah have entered Adam alayhis Salatu was Salam into paradise. And on this very same day, Allah removed him from Paradise. So so many great events on this day, and it doesn't invade. The howdy then teaches us that the Day of Judgment your myopia will not happen except on the day of Juma May Allah subhanho wa

00:04:09--> 00:04:17

Taala make us from amongst all those who are destined for Jenna, when we meet him on the day of piano. I mean, so this is just a bit of

00:04:18--> 00:04:54

a reminder and for one in order to remember the importance of this day, also on this day, as mentioned in the sooner is the valuable time that exists just before sunset way Allah subhanho wa Taala never leaves any unanswered. So we should take heed in making sure that we make use of this special time that Allah subhana wa Taala has given us to ask of him and from him, because as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it is a law that never goes unanswered. Now, coming here today, I didn't have a specific topic in mind.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

But obviously, after trying to work

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

Suitable karate and not really but I plan so that I would say it carefully and make sure we could make full use of the one hour 15 minutes I have with you. I managed to come across two of our local British youth and decided to pop the question to them that what do you think is the most current Islamic topic that we should be discussed today? So one of them said, we need to discuss how islamically we can get through the credit crunch

00:05:31--> 00:05:38

and insisting choice. The second person said, No, why don't you discuss why Nando's is haram?

00:05:40--> 00:06:20

Obviously, I was taken aback but not expecting these kinds of suggestions. However, these were the suggestions that put forward after analyzing these two suggestions I decided when I heard it actually, and I came to mind and obviously we're not trying to put anybody down. But when Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously reviewed the Quran, it is the Constitution of the Muslims and in every Ayah there is a lesson for one in all, so an ayah came to mind when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, fo taraba Lin se she's Abu fi hoffa Lattimore.

00:06:23--> 00:06:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the coming of the hour is indeed near the coming off the Day of Judgment, which is a very severe day, a day when each and every one of us will be brought in front of Allah and dealt with in regards to how we utilize our time in this temporary dunya in this Borrowed Time that Allah lent to us. So Allah sees the coming of the hour is indeed near. But mankind's is in a sense of heedlessness.

00:06:58--> 00:07:15

They are in a sense of hopelessness and as a result of this heedlessness, heedlessness, meaning they're not in touch with reality, as a result of this heedlessness, they are Maria goon. They are lost, they are not in touch with reality, they are in denial.

00:07:17--> 00:08:05

They are in denial. Now, obviously, if we look at the advent of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, we see that the pagan Arabs lived in a sense of denial. They were involved in activities which the human mind cannot comprehend. And Allah gives cognizance to this in the Quran. They were involved in burying young girls alive, they were not being just to the women. Women were a form of commodity and trade, they would be used as trade. If I owe if somebody owed somebody some money. Then to pay off that debt. He would offer his daughter or his wife as a form of payment. These kinds of activities were actually taking place they were they would actually engage in going around the

00:08:05--> 00:08:31

Kaaba naked. And this was the kind of understanding indeed an understanding of denial. They were indeed in a state of heedlessness, they weren't in touch with reality and Mmm, what was needed. Then Allah subhana wa Jalla if we look in the Quran says, a beautiful ayah and all the ayah in the Quran are beautiful. Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

to

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

reject leanness

00:08:39--> 00:08:54

that indeed you own of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam are the best of all creations, the best of all creation, the best of all owners. The owner of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the best oma,

00:08:55--> 00:09:41

why? y and when, after the advent of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Why? Because they carry upon themselves what the prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam or the Prophet sallahu wa Salatu was Salam were commanded to Kenny and that was the practice of inviting towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and preventing from evil. Jamuna Maru Mancha and they believed in Allah, Allah, Allah, and inshallah, if we have time we'll discuss what is Eman? Because many of us seem to understand that a man is just belief but in reality, it's conviction there's a difference between a keycard and email. But Allah subhanho wa Taala coming back to what we think is saying that this oma is the best of all

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

openness because of the Advent and presence of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He came at a time when people were in heedlessness, but he came with a divine constitution, and he came to invite us good and he came to refrain from evil, and thus he took them out from a nation who were in

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

engaged in or found themselves, engaging and practicing Riba and Xena adultery and going around the Kaaba naked and involved in drinking alcohol etc. He removed them from that kind of a practicing nation and put them on guidance, put them upon guidance. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:10:25--> 00:10:31

who Allah de oro Salah, Rasul Allah ob Luda de la

00:10:33--> 00:11:11

the ayah that I mentioned at the beginning, Allah says, who Allah Dr. Salah Rasul Allah, Allah is the one who sent His Prophet bill Buddha with guidance and was dean and Huck the true religion which unfortunately some of us some of ourselves unfortunately find ourselves in a misunderstanding find ourselves not realizing the reality of the deen we are upon Allah He if we weren't Muslims, let us ask ourselves seriously, who would come and invite us to Islam, because we not carrying the responsibility of the prophets. AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam as we should invite him towards Allah, preventing from evil,

00:11:12--> 00:11:35

and enjoying that which is good. So if we are weak ourselves in our ability and relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala, who would really invite us to Islam, and have we truly realized the name of Islam, the fact that we are Muslims, the fact that we are from amongst those who have declared the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the fact that we are from amongst those who have submitted to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:11:37--> 00:11:44

If we do realize this, then we will realize one important thing, if you go through the text of the Sharia,

00:11:46--> 00:12:07

or jurisprudence methodology, there's a method known as Alistair karateka, which is the methodology of going through the text revising, researching and extracting that which the texts are speaking about. We'll find that Islam came with two things

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

to do, and not to do.

00:12:11--> 00:12:38

It came with two things to do, and not to do. La Ilaha is to affirm you have to affirm the oneness of Allah. So that is doing in La La ilaha illa Allah, so you negating any other diet is, you negate every other diet is so you don't do share. Adam alayhis Salatu was Salam wasn't supposed to do, but he, he did.

00:12:39--> 00:13:08

He believes shavon was supposed to do he was supposed to bow down to Adam alayhis salatu salam, but he didn't do and that was the cause of his destruction. Adam alley, salat wa salam, O Allah forgive him. But he was commanded not to do not to partake from a particular tree and he partook. And that's what the Sharia is telling us to do. It's telling us to do in certain circumstances and not to do we have we become

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

heedless, and have failed to realize that we supposed to do certain things and not supposed to do certain things. At the time

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

when the man is calling out,

00:13:35--> 00:13:46

calling us to follow up. How can we fail to realize that this is something we have to do? And instead we don't do that? I'm not the stereo minded and saying all of us, but we have to talk in regards to the majority.

00:13:48--> 00:14:04

Why is it we in a sense of heedlessness and fail to understand this is a command from Allah to come and render the prayer, as Islam came was two things to do and not to do? And in our businesses, when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the

00:14:06--> 00:14:40

extreme danger in engaging in Riba and including interest in our businesses, we fail to realize the reality of that, and tend to fall prey to shape on and do So indeed, if we are living our lives, opposite to what's criteria and reality, then we haven't understood what the Sharia has come with and what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has come up. Now, I didn't I at the beginning when we said that coming off the hour is close and inside is in a state of heedlessness, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in another part, Allah says

00:14:41--> 00:14:49

Allah for Da Da Da Li Johanna Makati Mina al de Waal.

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

Let him

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

be heard

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

Is morona beha Ola

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

Ola

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

Inca.

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

Listen for massive Hanwha Tanaka is telling us he says well,

00:15:22--> 00:15:49

indeed we have created for Johanna Kathy Amina Geneva. We have already created for Johanna many of mankind and Gene kinds. We are destined for Jana, we've created them for Jana y, la home kulu life Kona Bihar, they have intellects, but they fail to understand. They have a brain, Allah has given them a brain, but they are dumb. They are or they have failed to understand

00:15:50--> 00:16:05

that we supposed to do and we're not supposed to do so the spiritual understanding is not there, even though they have a brain, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says they have eyes, but they fail to see the not blind physically, but they are blind spiritually.

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

And they have ears, but they don't hear.

00:16:10--> 00:16:13

They sit in many lectures and listen to many of us,

00:16:14--> 00:16:52

but fail to learn from them. And I said it last year. Who knows why some of us actually here? Maybe some of us are curious, what we'll talk about, maybe some of us had nothing to do at home. So we thought, let's be entertained a little bit. And this is the fee of some of these talks that happen today. Some of the some of the things are entertainment, because if we came to learn, I'm sure many of us would have pens and papers with us. But if we've come just to listen, we have to ask ourselves, what's the reality of us being here. And some people, as I said the last time a Hollywood critics, they're here to give a analysis of the talk afterwards.

00:16:53--> 00:17:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from amongst those who have come to learn so that we have ears and we use our ears the way Allah subhanho wa Taala has asked us to use our ears, not that Allah has given us the physical ability to hear and spiritually we are deaf. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, he can kill and

00:17:13--> 00:17:22

they are like animals, who these people that I've just described that Allah has just described, they are like animals. Then Allah says, Well, no.

00:17:24--> 00:17:55

They are worse than animals. Bear Well, in the Arabic language is used for allistic rock. It's rhetorical, as those who specialize in English grammar, would understand it's the rhetorical method of making somebody understand for example, we say, this person is bad. Then we say no, no, no, he's not bad. He's worse. Allah subhanho wa Taala is using this methodology here. He says those people are like animals. In fact, no, they even worse than animals. Now, why would Allah subhanho wa Taala say that?

00:17:56--> 00:18:15

Because Allah ecohome ohakune they are in a state of heedlessness, we are not in touch with reality. So halala. Now, if we look at animals, a cat, a dog, a lion, any animal, those who study the sciences would definitely

00:18:16--> 00:18:58

agree with me here that an animal is never in a state of heedlessness, they are always away. Even when the eating, you find the ears moving, the eyes moving, they are aware of everything that's around them. If you go a bit near they'll stop drinking and look at you and show you that we know that you there. We are never in a state of heedlessness they are away. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that these people who have physical is and spiritually are deaf. And they are. They have the physical ability to see and spiritually they are blind and those who are physically intellectual but spiritually, an intellectual these people are worse than animals because even animals are in a state

00:18:59--> 00:19:29

of hidden animals are never in a state of weightlessness. So Panama. So this is what we have to understand respected elders in progress. We need to follow in the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as I said, he came to people who are in a state of heedlessness who are not in touch with reality, and he made them in touch with reality. The same Sahaba Ravi Allahu anhu who we praise today, we love them. We

00:19:30--> 00:19:46

honor them, though seems to have that before Islam were engaged in hipness acts like burying the torches alive, like worshipping idols, then Islam came and gave them honor as the Allahu and says canavalia we were Richard nobody wanted to know us

00:19:47--> 00:19:53

as Allah who will Islam, we are a nation that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given honor through what through Islam.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Yeah yohannes Allah subhanho wa Taala says Mahara arabic al Karim what

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

has put you in the deception of Allah, Who is carry him who is honorable, who is generous. Karim who is generous. A lady halaqa He created you He gave you arms with which you work legs with it you walk a heart which beats Subhan Allah with ventricles and ATMs and deoxygenated blood coming in through the veins and oxygenated blood going out through your ventricles, a whole system which panela is indeed amazing. a va who gave you all this watch has put you in a deception of him. He created you he fashioned you He gave you everything. So why is your allegiance to the dunya? Why is the credit crunch something which is affecting you and making you depressed? And

00:20:48--> 00:21:26

why is the credit crunch in the reason why Nando's is haraam? The topic of your discussion? Where is the weakness? Why isn't the weakness of your mind the topic of discussion? Why isn't the fact that our massages are not as cool as they should be the topic of discussion? Why is the fact that the Muslims are just uniting more than uniting? Why is that not the topic of discussion? Why is that not our thoughts? The last thought before we go to sleep? And the first thought before we wake up in the morning? Why are we in a state of heedlessness? Where have we gone wrong? And this is the question I put out to my dearest fathers and brothers and mothers and sisters. Where have we gone wrong? Islam

00:21:26--> 00:21:55

was the core of knowledge throughout the centuries. We all know in the 18th century Europe was in the dark ages, they were going they sent individuals to envelopes, the orientalist people like boutrous and if you read the orientalist books you will find that they went to envelopes in Spain to learn from Muslim or Lama how have they left us behind? So Han Allah today even in our strategies in inviting towards Allah has been left behind.

00:21:56--> 00:22:16

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being insulted in newspapers across the world and we stood behind in defending Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we need to say iraq iran. Yeah Rasul Allah, Ya Rasulullah. We apologize that we truly haven't shown you respect in following that which you taught us.

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

And this is the true following of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and through luck, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we shouldn't win the newspaper comes up with with various cartoons which are derogatory and in South Africa, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam raise our voices and become emotional. When at the time of lecture, we're not rendering our Salah when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam wanted Unity we just uniting one another, etc. We have we become lost. I was lucky enough to meet an economist market. His field was marketing. And he's explaining how they would market a simple product like for example, Frosties, Kellogg's pastas. Now his job is

00:22:58--> 00:23:37

to market Kellogg's firsties. But what does he do? He calls in a psychologist to market Kellogg's facilities, and he's a marketing expert. He calls in as a psychologist. What's the purpose of calling in a psychologist now this shows you how well educated and how well they look into things and plantings. And we have just we just sitting in the sidelines and remaining in heedlessness, Allah subhanaw taala protects us. He calls him the psychologist to understand how a child thinks. So the psychologist stays children are more.

00:23:39--> 00:24:21

Or they have a good sense of reality with round objects and not square objects. If you give them round objects, the more open to round objects, square objects they pitch afraid of. So what does Kellogg's do, they come with around tiger, the tiger that you find on the Frosties box. And he comes on TV, and the child is watching the TV. And what happens is this Tiger comes on. And to the kid This is my friend and he passes a subtle message. And he passes another subtle message. So what happens you go to the shops now. And the marketer knows that look, I got to put the Frosties box at the bottom shelves. Why? Because they showed people so they'll be walking with their parents and

00:24:21--> 00:25:00

they'll see the tiger and they'll say this is my friend. I want a box of Trustees. So to market first is this is here and this is amazing. I mean, hearing this showed me how forward and advanced people have gone in the secular field, how far they moved up. And this is another thing which we need to watch out for respected elders and brothers that we don't stay away. You know, we spend majority of our time watching TV and not reading. We become a nation was glued to the television. The television is a tool. That's what indoctrinate you and make you a consumer and you have to understand this. That is the job description.

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

Off the television.

00:25:03--> 00:25:14

As small as you can be, you put your child in front of a cartoon, etc, etc. They are training you to buy that you have to grow up to earn and buy and purchase and be a consumer and that's the reality of existence.

00:25:17--> 00:25:27

It's a tool of indoctrination, but the one book that should affect you and act as your constitution, and should we say indoctrination is the Quran of Allah.

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

Allah, Allah.

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

Allah says, rarely, Kalki tabula rasa Buffy. It's a book in which there is no doubt wrote

00:25:41--> 00:25:50

a book which is a guidance for those who have Taqwa, which level of taqwa the basic level of taqwa. levena. You know,

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

those people who believe in the unseen why up Muna Sala and darynda Sala

00:25:58--> 00:26:36

Rosa Puna, whom you people and they are in the desert, and they give charity, they are in touch with reality, and not in a state of heedlessness. I want you to participate with me very quickly, in a five minute exercise. Let us close our eyes. And don't feel shy. Close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting at home on a weekend or any day of the week. comfortable. And all of a sudden, you hear a knock on the door. You hear a knock on the door. So your child goes and sees who's at the door.

00:26:38--> 00:26:46

And now what I'm relating to you, I heard it in a nasm and English nasm couplers. And it was interesting. And I thought this is something which we can use and participate together.

00:26:48--> 00:26:52

The child comes to you and says Daddy, the prophet of Allah is at the door

00:26:53--> 00:26:58

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is at the door? What will we do?

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

What do we say? Just go and say my dad is not here?

00:27:03--> 00:27:06

Or will it be the child who says my daddy said I should tell you that he's not here.

00:27:10--> 00:27:23

So obviously, we have to accept Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So what happens? Do we open the door straightaway? Or do we start covering the television? Because there's no way we can pack it. And all those tapes in games that are underneath it, start throwing them out the window?

00:27:25--> 00:27:30

Because British homes are small. It's not like Africa. In Africa, we have huge homes. You can store things everywhere.

00:27:32--> 00:27:42

And then what happens to the magazines that are in the lounge for personal entertainment? Do we have to hide those and we have to bring out the masala and start phoning the neighbor and asking them with the fibula.

00:27:45--> 00:28:08

Ask yourself this question. It's not something that you should answer but ask yourselves how ready are you to accept Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Are you in a state of heedlessness? Or are you in touch with reality? Those who are in touch with reality will be ready to accept Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam why because they were eco Sahaba who follows Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they came out of the state of heedlessness.

00:28:09--> 00:28:28

Are you ready to accept Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in your home? Or would it be an embarrassment the fact that you have to bring him into your home? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us now knowing understand that Allah Salalah alayhi wa sallam will never come to your door because he is not present. But Allah.

00:28:30--> 00:29:05

Allah wa her, your Creator and my Creator, our marisha, our sustainer The one who created as the one who we will return to the one who commanded us to worship Him, the one who says Be and it becomes his ever watching and he's ever knowing our realities and the and and our activities. We should understand this. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows how can we act in the state of heedlessness in a state whereby we are not in touch with reality and Allah every day is in touch with our realities Subhan Allah, this is the question we have to ask ourselves.

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

The Sahaba

00:29:10--> 00:29:52

they loved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much, such a love that when they used to leave him and go to their families, we used to feel the love and these two Miss Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so what used to happen is to come back, as mentioned in hodeida, that they would want men came back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said yeah, Rasul Allah, I am so worried because I love you more than myself more than my family more than my children more than my wife more than my parents more than anything. And I'm scared that after we pass away, and on the day of faremo, Allah puts you into gender. And if I go into gender, I won't be in the same gender with

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

you because Allah will put you with the NBA and he was salatu salam look where the savvies thinking was in the dunya

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

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't say anything. And after a while, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what does he say? He says

00:30:17--> 00:30:24

he Cameron, V net was sweet DB and viola.

00:30:26--> 00:30:34

Be no sleep dp no shuhada squad in

00:30:36--> 00:30:59

this ayah was glad tidings to the Sahaba of the law when Allah subhanho wa Taala says that those people who follow Rasul Allah who follow Allah subhanho wa Taala and follow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then they will be with them via Allahumma salat wa salam agenda, they will be with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they'll be with us for this mean.

00:31:00--> 00:31:49

The truth will like Abu Bakr Siddiq, because he was sodic he accepted the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Shahada, those who are martyred in the path of Allah Jalla wa salim and those who did good or not without a karateka La ilaha illa Allah is this is not enough for us. Allah He we are going through difficulties. These are depressive times. I mean, the reality of the credit crunch or whatever financial standing in material well being we are in the difficulties of society. The difficulty is become to be a Muslim. Our Eman is being tested. our livelihood is being tested with fear for our children. We are not in our control because they move out into schools etc.

00:31:49--> 00:31:59

And they've been indoctrinated. A lot on the stand. I came from London and there was an issue whereby the parents are old and the Muslim children are putting them in old age homes.

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

This is the reality is we are living in serious, depressing times. He listened as a state that we are in love understand.

00:32:09--> 00:32:48

This should make us more closer to Allah and make us have more faith in Allah and bring us closer to Allah that the one person we can't lose is Allah subhanho wa Taala they can take away everything but they can take away Allah. If our goal is Allah subhanho wa Taala Can you ever become depressed because they can take away everything but they can't take away. But if your goal becomes certain elements of the dunya you might be able to attain those goals and you might not and if you don't, you become depressed, you become constricted, you become upset. You suffer from delusions, you lose touch with reality. Some people question the deal. I'm making dua and Allah is not answering La

00:32:48--> 00:33:03

ilaha illa Allah, how can we reach to such levels? We've reached these levels because we have forgotten the realities of our creation and our being here. And let me remind you as Allah reminds us in his book, why you are created, Allah says, Allah, Allah.

00:33:05--> 00:33:05

Allah,

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

Allah, Allah or Buddha,

00:33:11--> 00:33:38

that mankind and Jean kind weren't created except that they worship Allah subhanho wa Taala except that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. Can anybody stop you from worshipping Allah? Are you depressed about doing Yahweh issues, but the fact that you're not worshiping Allah, which is the purpose of your creation, doesn't tickle your memory and doesn't tickle your feelings at all? Nobody wakes up saying I'm so depressed. I'm a special Saturday in the law when a Rajon

00:33:41--> 00:34:00

but the first thing is we complain about is the dunya because that's what we've done to ourselves. We are becoming like them, those people who are heedless, those people who Allah has been blessed with the facility of Islam and Eman. What kind of a loss are we in? somebody gives you a million dollars and you squander it.

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

somebody gives you Islam and the man and the right track and with squandering it, you Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So respected elders and brothers. Let us not be in a state of heedlessness. And let us come to a point whereby we are in touch with our reality by giving cognizance and respect to all that which Islam said do and staying away from all that which Islam said don't do. So now I've put in front of view of problem being idle and being heedless.

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

Now, if we give a talk with problems, only no solutions, then we are also a problem. So let me come up with the solution. The solution respected elders and brothers, my dear mothers and fathers is in many things, but I want to discuss with you a few things. We need to understand then that we as human beings are a heart and we are

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

meaning we are heart. That's our makeup.

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

A heart and our physical makeup, our hands, our bodies, our joy, your nose, your eyes

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

and your tongue etc.

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

We need to take control of these two faculties.

00:35:14--> 00:35:38

know and understand that you are responsible for your ears, for your heart, for your tongue, for your eyes, Allah says in Lesson One basura wonderful kulu Ola McKenna and houmous Ola. Allah says that

00:35:40--> 00:36:01

indeed in the summer what you hear well boss are and what you see wonderful art and what in your heart can Lola can and who masala you are responsible for it and you will return to Allah and you will answer for it. And I just want to bring a point here why Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned in this seminar, well basa he mentioned the aspect of hearing before the aspect of seeing

00:36:02--> 00:36:12

that's because as the scientists explain, our eyes are used in a linear fashion. We can see what's in front of us what

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

linear to us, but our is work in a circular fashion. So you can't see what's behind you. But you can hear what's behind you. So heilala look at the Hikmah line and the words of the Quran. Allah says Allah Etta Bruno Quran, Nina ponder, about what Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed in the Quran, Allah khudobin has seen a lock on your heart, whereby you can comprehend Allah subhanaw taala protect us. So when you see something Haram, you can immediately turn away from it. You have more control over your eyesight that you have over your ability to hear. Because what you hear, you can't always stay away from hearing unless you block your ears and even that's not 100% but all these

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

things have an effect on your heart. What you see what you hear what you speak, all these elements have an effect on your heart, and your heart is indeed the most important part of yourself. Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah in a little Jessa de moda indeed there is nothing about the body except a mother or a piece of flesh, either. Hello, hello Jessica clue. If it's correct, then the entire body will be correct when he first said that first saddle, just a Dooku. And if it's point, if it's corrupt, then the entire body will be corrupt Allah.

00:37:39--> 00:37:41

Indeed, it's the heart.

00:37:42--> 00:38:21

A person who listens to music it's because his heart isn't going to music. who watches derogatory films is because his heart is inclined to them. If the heart cannot accept it, his ears, his eyes will not accept it as well. And this is a fact. So it's the heart that Allah subhanho wa Taala watches and the heart has an intake and an output. And just like we learn in computers, we have input devices and output devices, your input devices, your keyboard and your mouse etc. Your output devices, your printer, your screen, etc. The output device for the heart is the time Subhanallah and the input devices your ears and your eyes.

00:38:22--> 00:38:30

La ilaha illa Allah. Now the tongue. This simple piece of flesh is impressively sophisticated.

00:38:31--> 00:38:43

The tongue has the ability to taste 1000s of different flavors. And the same flesh has the ability to speak hundreds of languages.

00:38:44--> 00:39:01

And the same piece of flesh has the ability to get us flung into the depth of Ghana May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. Allahu alayhi wa sallam said many young men Li ma bien le de admin level Jana, the person who guarantees me

00:39:02--> 00:39:08

what is between his jaws meaning his tongue I guarantee for him Jana, foolhardiness manga Manny Medina de

00:39:09--> 00:39:51

Manya minima Pineda binaries. layoutmanager. Now what is between his legs and what is between his jaws. But for the purpose of discussion, I'm concentrating on the first part. Whoever guarantees listen to the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Arabic language is extremely apt, extremely appropriate. Every word used is specific. As I explained to you why Allah put the ability to hear in front of the ability to see Allahu alayhi wa sallam says guarantee for me your tongue and I'll guarantee for you genma La ilaha illa Allah, this simple tongue has the ability to do great evil, which Allah subhanho wa Taala dislikes, the evil of lying, the evil of backbiting. The evil of

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

slandering the evil of gossiping, Allahu Allah Stan, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and today for us to come out of

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

heedlessness, we have to control our tank. We have to watch what we speak. We need to stop being those people who open our mouths to just unite the community. Because if that's what we're doing, Allah will leave us astray. We need to be from amongst those who don't do Riba who don't backbite and unfortunately, Today we've been we've become so easy with backbiting. We hear people think, you know what? I can say it in front of that person.

00:40:27--> 00:40:52

I'm not backbiting I can say it in front of him. Listen to the definition of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the Sahaba I said Runa mareeba. Do you know what Heba is? They said, Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah and His Prophet knows best. When he says Vic Luca haka, Bhima, Kuru, the remembrance of your Muslim brother by that which he doesn't want you to remember him by.

00:40:53--> 00:41:05

so who cares whether you can say it in front of him, or you can say it in front of him the mere fact that you're saying something about your Muslim brother to a third party, which he himself doesn't like you to say about him is Riba

00:41:07--> 00:41:16

and Allah subhana wa Taala says those who do Riba It's like eating the flesh of a dead brother of a good brother.

00:41:18--> 00:41:40

Today, we look at such minute aspects in deciding whether something is permissible to eat or something is not permissible to eat. I don't like using the word halal and haram. This is hella This is haram. Because I'll Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla is what Allah has made halal and haram is what Allah has made haram Allah says kuhlmann Habermas Zina.

00:41:43--> 00:42:01

Allah says Who is the one who is making haram that which allows me to Allah, so I don't like saying this is helpful for you to eat, this is haram for you at home for you to consume. I prefer using the terms that this particular project has not met the requirements to be declared Halla.

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

There is a more

00:42:04--> 00:42:52

the middle way of going about it. But coming back to the point, we look at the ease. I know, in one of the countries they printed out a list of the e 45. E 7585. And I've seen Muslims sitting in the shops standing with a kid cat looking at the ease. We concentrating so hard on these little ease that exists on the ingredients forum. But we spending our day eating two kilos of this Muslim Brothers meat, haram it's haram we are consuming Haram, the flesh of our dead brother and the next day we have consumed five kilos off another Muslim brother, good brother Allah homestand. So are we in touch with reality? Are we not hypocritical to a certain extent? A lot of projectors we're not

00:42:52--> 00:43:19

talking about the hypocrisy hypocrites, which pretend to be Muslims and are not but to a certain extent. We have we we have we lost ourselves My dear fathers, my dear brothers, my dear mothers we have we lost ourselves is our Deen not clear enough for us is not something which is simple. Something which is or makes sense to us something which we can relate to our natural disposition. Our HIPAA teaches us that

00:43:21--> 00:43:26

what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with was substantial, and correct

00:43:27--> 00:44:08

fitrah and ask those who have reverted to Islam. And I've met many of them in Riyadh. And this is what they say the next word is petition. Those people who literally speak about what was the reason for them really looking for a religion when they were born Christians, for example, and they say the natural disposition the fitrah just didn't add up. It just they weren't in touch with it, what it guided them to the religion wasn't serving cognizance, it wasn't moving congruently as they say, it was moving in an antagonistic mega manner. And Islam moves congruently with us at hamdulillah. So why we have we lost it expected Alison promise. The next thing after our speakers have spoken about

00:44:08--> 00:44:27

the jawara being in touch with our tongue, our hearing, and have spoken about the heedlessness of the tongue, we shouldn't lie as well. We should be in touch with ourselves. And make it a point that when you lie on your Muslim brother and say, you know what I said this I made a mistake. That's the only way you Stop lying. Because some people it's second nature to lie.

00:44:28--> 00:44:32

fix yourself for who for Allah. And that brings me to my second point.

00:44:33--> 00:44:35

You need to have sincerity My beloved.

00:44:36--> 00:44:59

Children of Adam are servants of Allah. O servants of Allah, not servants of one another, not servants of your bank balance. Not seven of your wives and children are servants of Allah have sincerity. Live your life for Allah. This is what Allah wants from you, Allah

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

subhanho wa Taala says, Alma meeru in lallier go to LA harmoniously in Allahu Dena.

00:45:11--> 00:45:46

That they will not commanded except to worship Allah with sincerity meclizine with love that what I'm doing is for Allah. If my brother is fighting with me and he's not keeping relations with me, it doesn't matter. I'll be his friend for Allah, not for him for Allah I'll keep relations. If my fellow Muslim brother owes me money for Allah, I will forgive him and I won't spoil his name. If my fellow Muslim brother harms me for Allah I will exercise patience and not attack him. A sub Rufus admati Lula, I will be patient at the beginning.

00:45:47--> 00:46:28

This statement was said by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that patients at the beginning when your brother oppresses you or when you find yourself in a situation that you become so upset for Allah exercise patience, Allah wants to exercise patience at that particular moment. Immediately not that you punch your Muslim Brothers enough to say no and make me mad. I don't know what happened to me. And you know what, I lost it a little bit. That's not exercising patience. Don't attack your Muslim brother for Allah come to the message and leave your Salah for Allah Don't be like those people who want people to speak about them that hey, you know what that guy Mashallah he makes long

00:46:28--> 00:46:28

suit.

00:46:29--> 00:46:33

And if it's even worse than the guy will say, don't forget to tell him about my fasting.

00:46:35--> 00:47:05

Do it for Allah, live your life for Allah, Allah He will return to Allah, Allah He in front of us is a grade six meters deep, and we will all go inside. And we will be faced with three questions. Three very, very difficult questions and examination that no preparation can prepare us for well, ah, he is an examination which Allah has given us the questions in advance Morocco woman who took the questions are with us, but who can guarantee that will answer those questions.

00:47:07--> 00:47:24

The only way you're able to answer who your Prophet was if you were not in a state of viciousness regarding what he taught you. The only way you'll be able to answer who Allah is if you are not in a state of heedlessness who allow us and what he knows and in front of you is your myopia.

00:47:25--> 00:47:26

So Subhana Allah,

00:47:28--> 00:48:09

Ma Ma de Raka. And what will make you understand what is human Kiana May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us Allah He, it should make a Shiva How will we be in front of Allah? should make sure that what if we go in front of Allah and we find out that we are wondering what less? If we had been wondering what would be entered into paradise? Just one should this not make us become more in touch with our E vida for Allah, our charity for Allah, keeping relationship with our brothers and sisters for Allah? Yeah, one My dear brothers, do it for Allah, be in touch with yourselves be in touch with reality. You are Abdullah, you are the seventh of Allah. He

00:48:10--> 00:48:11

is

00:48:13--> 00:48:13

the

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

man.

00:48:20--> 00:48:39

Everything in the heavens and the earth. Everything doesn't come to Allah subhanho wa Taala except as a slave, except as an adult. You are the slave of Allah. And Allah He that is the most proud of profession you can have. Somebody says what's your profession say I'm a slave slave Ah, who have Allah.

00:48:41--> 00:48:55

Allah Allah wa Hidaka Ha. And this is the reality how you should live your life now respected elders and brothers just before the time finishes. We all know there are some of us Allahu alayhi wa sallam came in when he was the last prophet. There's no profits to come after.

00:48:56--> 00:49:18

And we should be thirsty of receiving his guidance and make up for lost time and learn from what he taught and remove ourselves from this evil depressive circle of heedlessness. So what do we do now? We need to go to the next best thing. And the next best thing is the allameh.

00:49:20--> 00:49:52

Those individuals who Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed with knowledge. Now when I say Rama I'm not meaning everybody who sat in a dark room and finish six years and call themselves an island is from Dola obviously we're not saying that many people complain about this but we're talking about those people who are barely in the here Allah Subhana Allah and they there to guide people for the sake of Allah. Not that they talk for the pleasure of the people, but they say what is Huck for the sake of Allah because they fear a lot. They don't fear anybody else.

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

a couplet or few couplets come to mind. We are poet says Alhamdulillah he lezzy Gylfi

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

Before karate Miller was really bucha I mean,

00:50:03--> 00:50:11

he had the owner Mangala Illa Huda warrior spirit I mean whom Allah you hear Nikita Bella Italia Mota Are you

00:50:13--> 00:50:18

coming in, in the police in yo welcome in Berlin

00:50:20--> 00:50:42

Martinez aka Varanasi, Allah subhana wa. He says Praise be to Allah, Who made sure that after every prophet came in went in the timespan in between Allah lift people of knowledge there to guide the people. They job description was to invite people who are straight towards guidance. And

00:50:43--> 00:51:16

because of the knowledge they had the ability to exercise patience, because of what those people were doing to them and in every community unfortunately, we see today everybody wants to command the item how to behave now that we want to command our llama how to behave. We don't give them the respect they deserve. And yet they exercise patience. Yo, yo Nikita Bella eternal Mota, they give life to the dead, those who are spiritually dead. How, with what with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:51:17--> 00:52:01

pursued habenula. Those who are spiritually blind, who we spoke about Anya before they give them eyesight was the knower of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is his book. We need to associate ourselves with them. We need to love them for the sake of Allah, we need to be thirsty and go to them and learn and tell them teachers that which was what was in them taught us and make us from amongst those who are not from the circle of those who are heedless, but from amongst those who are aware and in touch with reality of the last servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala our time is up unfortunately. And everything correct in this talk is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah

00:52:01--> 00:52:42

subhanho wa Taala is perfect, any mistakes that I didn't make, or from myself and shavon I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant sincerity amongst us to take heed from what was said and not discuss the pros and cons of the talk but revise ourselves as we go home and make a sincere effort for the sake of Allah to change. May Allah subhanho wa Taala love us on May Allah subhanho wa Taala grants us death once he's happy with us. May He make our gravy garden from the gardens of Jenna. May He grants a shade underneath his arm from the day of piano. May He grant us genevois Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I love you all for the sake of Allah And may Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:52:42--> 00:52:54

make us from amongst those that when we leave this gathering we have left forgiven and May Allah gathers ingen as he has gathered us here today. Well sal Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Ali or sorry, big money
