Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was a big Marine, but rubbish recently westerly Unbelievable. Look at the temple Lisa any of our holy

00:00:13--> 00:00:55

We begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to my brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh when Allah's peace mais blessings be safe to be upon you all a couple of La Mina Amin consulted man, we only accept our deeds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our first 10 of Ramadan. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our last 10 of Ramadan. Tonight is the 20th night of Ramadan at least where we are here in Australia, in Melbourne, in Melbourne, Medina Subhanallah we have to be more specific, because for some others I believe it's still the 19th night

00:00:57--> 00:01:02

it being the 20th Night means that we are coming to the end of this term.

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

Which means we need to package it and hand it to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:08--> 00:01:22

and there's no greater way to package our rabada at its end then is still far. There we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive any mistakes in these 10 Just as Insha Allah we did at the end of the first time.

00:01:23--> 00:02:12

And we ask Allah subhanahu Urla to grant us the strength and the health and the energy for the final 10 Subhanallah the marathon 10 The last 10 the last third of Ramadan, which has the best nights of the year, the last 10 nights of the year. Sorry the last two nights of Ramadan. And these are nights that hosts the best night of the leader to other than night of power and decree and veg. And this night could be in any one of the upcoming nights. Any one of the nights from the 21st night up to the 30th and it from our van reaches its completion or up to the 29th night from a van. If Allah decrease Ramadan to be 29 days this year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he never treated

00:02:12--> 00:02:30

these nights. Like the other nights, things changed. Things changed with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when the last 10 Nights came during the first 20 nights he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to sleep and used to worship. He used to have family time.

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

And he used to sleep and he used to worship when the last 10 Nights came.

00:02:37--> 00:02:58

The hadith says he tightened his belt meaning he stayed away from his family. And he never slept sal Allahu Allah he was and he never went home sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did what we call the Zoom al Masjid Live, which he left. He stayed invested to never wait for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to have Allah seeking out later to Qatar.

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

He never treated the last 10 nights of Ramadan as he treated the first 20 nights of Ramadan.

00:03:07--> 00:03:20

And this should be a lesson for us. If we do not switch our timetables for the last 10 of Ramadan to the best of our ability, then we're not serious about the last 10 of Ramadan.

00:03:21--> 00:03:39

And then I mean the whole my whole this statement I'm busy. Forget about it. Forget about it. My brother and sister in Islam. I said this a couple years ago in a video and perhaps this is a good reminder for me to send it out again and I will say it here in our pseudo use of session

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

the angel of death will visit you and you will be miserable.

00:03:45--> 00:03:58

You will always be miserable. You will always be busy. You will always have something that you have to do. There will be some bill you have to pay, there will be some call you have to return there will be some deadline you have to meet any actual

00:04:00--> 00:04:22

math. My mind. Being busy never ever comes to an end. When the angel of death comes, it won't be a case of look, you have so many hours left. Please finish all that you have to do clear your timetable, pay your bills, say goodbye to who you need to say goodbye to make up with whoever you need to make up with if you're fighting with somebody who I have a bit of distrust or a

00:04:24--> 00:04:40

bit of turbulence between you that angel of death will not be doing this. When the time comes lie as soon as what are you stuck on when the Agile comes in is not brought forward for a moment? And it's not D is not delayed for a moment, sir here.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

It's not even delayed for a moment. So please, sincere advice from a brother to my brothers and sisters. Please tonight, sit down. We had this discussion is tonight the last 10 Tomorrow the last 10 people were a bit panicky now the breathing last 10 starts on the 21st

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

I use the 20 Athonite us this night to ask Allah for forgiveness for the first 20 and to accept the first 20 and to forgive the mistakes of the first 20 and our weaknesses during the first 20 and the lack of diligence that we didn't apply when we could have during the first 20 and ask Allah

00:05:19--> 00:05:26

to make any retirement misc to make the end to our month, the best.

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

Starting with was now

00:05:31--> 00:05:41

with our timetables, with our plan with our execution. If there's people who you need to meet, tell them about your military limit that you open at

00:05:42--> 00:06:03

the day of Vegas to meet hamdulillah Allah Casa Santa Ana Yeoman, he gave us a special day to meet and to exchange greetings and Allahu Akbar or tariqa, Sloane Kabara Masha Allah, by the lead heavy human read, do it on the day of Eid, but for now, and what a book

00:06:04--> 00:06:39

and to our book and learn to start with Ramadan via Mindjet it and you think about it like this, this is the agency we need. Imagine that you will not see another mother. Imagine that you receive news that this is your last Ramadan. This is how best we operate. And we operate like this, this agency that when the doctor tells you, you know that if you don't change your diet now, we're going to have to put you on extreme medication now. Now it's urgent at a psychedelic, it becomes serious now. Now people are changing their diets, they making sure they take the sugars out of the home and they're doing what they need to do.

00:06:41--> 00:07:17

Some people they have this habit of procrastination, they don't revise before the exam. But when it's one day before the exam, now they revised Subhanallah and he no phone calls or Java. Everything is closed. We don't sleep we have the Gaza we have the shy we have everything ready. And he might not if I had we don't know anybody was ACARA three letter Lane until they see ba even when you go to the exam there will be revising till the exam. You go to the exam, they are walking outside of the exam with the book with the paper. And what are you going to learn now when the exam you are going to go into the exam room? Nothing but to Panama some pen some people procrastinate everything is

00:07:17--> 00:07:24

last minute.com. So how do you fix things with procrastinators? You create urgency.

00:07:25--> 00:07:58

That is the antidote. You create urgency. So my sincere advice to you all is create urgency tonight. Sit down and imagine urgency. Think to yourself Subhanallah I'm not going to meet another Ramadan. Think to yourself Subhan Allah I am in need of freedom from the hellfire. Think to yourself Subhan Allah so much of my agenda is unrenovated and Allah is gonna give me more than 83 years of Gen building gender innovation if I catch later to cuddle, and I need it because I won't get another chance. This is creating urgency, then sit down

00:07:59--> 00:08:20

to put down the plan. How is your star going to be? What are you going to do before you start? When are you going to do your car? Don't do you as car of the evening after maghrib do it before my trip? At least for the last time be more disciplined? Because you need all the help from the car from the hip onwards don't delay the car. You have Iftar GMA cancel a stop jam I

00:08:22--> 00:09:01

don't have Iftar in big gatherings during these last 10 Nights. I'm not trying to belittle them but let's be honest when we get into these big gatherings we just eat we don't even know we're breaking our fast no sit down and feel that you faster today. And Allah boudoir and stash lava need to live the moment that I was fasting, have a moment with Allah and break your fast when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Lisa me forgotten that beside him has to pay two points of happiness. The first point is when they break their fast and the second point is when they meet the Lord on the day of karma. Feel that happiness when you break your fast have these moments because if

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

You need to do other IAVA there's other

00:12:15--> 00:12:48

They call it maintenance mode go into maintenance only and come back. There's like Allah Hara babe, let us jump into Surah Yusuf, I didn't intend this to be Subhanallah so long, this discussion about the last day of Ramadan but Allah, Allah Allah, Allah chose for us the time that he chose for us and perhaps this is testimony to how serious these nights how serious these nights out with Akira for inadequate attend meaning remind the believers for in these reminders of benefits. And Allah when I speak to you I'm reminding myself I took long because I'm trying to motivate myself any

00:12:49--> 00:12:53

I'm only a human being like you may Allah grant us little cutter

00:12:54--> 00:12:59

fella who's focused on our team, so that inshallah we succeed a great

00:13:01--> 00:13:26

succeeding with delight Allah Surah Yusuf, welcome. Welcome to another episode, from the episodes of Ramadan dedicated to sort of use of pondering over Surah Yusuf and the lessons in the 21st century. Yesterday, we discussed this idea that I titled me to stick me to stick is the name of a book, by the way, by Chip and Dan Heath if I recall, and they based this book after being inspired by

00:13:28--> 00:14:09

Malcolm Gladwell book, if I recall correctly, it's been a long time. But I remembered the title, because Mehta stick is a book about how to get what you have in your mind across successfully into the minds and hearts of other people. How do you make it stick in their mind? How to transfer information? I titled yesterday's pseudo use of sitting Made to Stick part one, and today is Made to Stick part two, why is it Made to Stick part one and two, because we see use of either histogram in the prison and the exercises for nominal techniques in giving the hour to these two inmates. To summarize, for those who weren't here yesterday, very quickly, we had the details yesterday, but

00:14:09--> 00:14:50

very quickly, use of Alehissalaam when these two came to him, for them, sorry for them to receive yes for them to receive the interpretation of the dreams that they had. Remember, Allah tells us that when use of went into the prison, there were two other people went into the prison, one of them so in his dream, he had bread on his head, and birds were picking at the bread on top of his head, and the other one saw and Allah told us so eloquently, that he saw himself pre serving wine for the king. And then they went to us, and they said, Can you interpret this dream for us? But why would they go to Yusuf? They don't know him. They don't know if they've never met him before. How do they

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

even know he can interpret dreams? Well, they tell him why they chose him. They say in an era communal Mycenean we see you from the point who does good

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

Subhan Allah, that so quickly, Allah teaches us

00:15:04--> 00:15:18

the great character of use of Alayhis Salam, the great mindset, the great heart set, the great soul said we talk about having an IQ which is the mindset, the PQ, which is the heart set, the SQ which is the soul set, right?

00:15:19--> 00:15:57

Authority, the EQ, which is the heart set, the PQ is the body set, not only the use of have a great PQ yet, mashallah he was beautiful. We had half of a beauty, but he was beautiful in his soul, in his mind, in his heart, that even though he's going through decades of tests, test after test, difficulty, after difficulty, missing his family, everything that he's going through, and now his honor is at stake because these women threw him into the prison, so that they could shut him up and maintain and protect themselves from us get another scandal and so on and so forth. So his honor is at stake. All of this is on his mind. But Subhanallah it's not defining him. He is defining the

00:15:57--> 00:16:38

moment and we said this yesterday, that a true believer is a believer that happens to things, things don't happen to him. Things don't happen to her, that Allah subhanho wa Taala sends a believer to a space and that space transforms because of the believer that there is not a case that a believer goes to a place a believer goes to a space and that place sucks the life out of the believer sucks the heart out of the believer sucks the light out of the believer that the believer remains in the space and slowly but surely becomes flat Subhanallah like a battery that has its its power drained. No, this is not the believer, Yusuf alayhi salam is teaching us that as long as you have Allah you

00:16:38--> 00:17:14

have everything, whether they put you in prison, whether they will sell you as a slave, they can take Allah out of your heart, you have Allah subhanho wa taala, you have everything, because he is the creator of everything. He is the owner of everything. He is the Lord of everything. You can have everything. But if you don't have Allah, you have nothing. Use of Allah he Salam, he doesn't matter where he is. He has Allah, He has everything. And this is manifest in his actions. The reality of his EQ is his IQ, his SQ is present on his PQ, it's manifest, that these people are seeing him as a good doer. They are coming and saying we see you as a good door, which means what, as soon as you

00:17:14--> 00:17:55

said went into the prison, he was proactive, he was active. He was helping people. He was read, he was praying, he was reading, he was living a life of someone that's totally different to everyone else in the prison, that you have all these people. And then you have this one star SubhanAllah. And these people are amongst the majority looking at the minority. And they inspired by him, to the extent that they go to him and say, Can you help us? Subhanallah SubhanAllah? Yeah. So this is the reality of a believer. This is the reality of of a believer use of it. He said, What did he do? He recognized immediately that they have come to him for something that they want to know. But there's

00:17:55--> 00:18:38

something that they need to know that they're not asking about. They're asking about their dream, and can you help us understand this dream, but they're not asking about Allah. They're not asking about the heat and use of can see that they're worshipping idols. So use Friday he Salam, this is the meat to stick techniques. He keeps them interested in him. He keeps their focus on him. He doesn't give them the bait, he doesn't give them what they want. He tells them the food won't come to that he says that the data on the food the meal that we about to have is not going to come except that before it. I will. I will tell you about your about what you ask. And then he says and what I

00:18:38--> 00:19:14

will tell you about what you ask. It's not from me, it's from that which Allah taught me. And then he says to them, immediately, you know what? You say I'm from the good doers as if you're saying to them, you see, I'm from the good doers in neoteric. To me, let's call me like a biller. Well, whom will ask you know to whom cafiero He says I am from amongst those who have left the way of the majority, the majority of the people who don't believe in Allah and the disbelievers. I have left that way. I am from the minority, you will notice something different about me. You don't know what it is. Let me tell you what it is now. Subhanallah what has he done here? phenomenally. He has

00:19:14--> 00:20:00

grabbed the attention. He has grabbed their time. And he has made them interested in him that he has credentials that interest them. So now they're willing to listen to him. He's prepared the mind he's prepared the heart to receive the instruction. And he goes for it. Allah subhanahu to Allah says that he says to them, and we discussed this yesterday with Tabata Tamila Ibrahim Oh Is harkaway a hoop Subhan Allah. He says I have followed the way of my forefathers. My grandfather's Ibrahim, what is halfway Subhanallah he's telling them that I have an identity. I don't have an identity crisis. Yes, I grew up since I was seven since I was eight since I was an infant in all

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

different environments in all sorts of surroundings in all sorts of gatherings in all sorts with all sorts of practices. But you know what, I'm not confused in terms of who I am. I've never ever been confused. I am a prophet, the son of a prophet, the son of a prophet, the son of the Prophet, I'm the use of the son of Yaqoob. Whoo hoo, and NaVi, who want to be the son of is helpful whenever we, the son of Ibrahim, well, whenever we, this is why I am this is my lineage, I know who I am, I am what I am, I'm clear about who I am. Subhanallah I'm not doubting who I am. I'm not in this constant, you know, time wasting mechanism of trying to find myself and that's what it is My Dear

00:20:40--> 00:21:05

Brothers and Sisters in Islam. When you constantly trying to find your way you don't know who you are, do I fit in? Don't I fit in? Should I fit in? Shouldn't I fit in, you know what's happening you wasting time, life is too short, to make it shorter. By doubting who you are to short already. Yanni, life is already short. And you are making it shorter by wasting time we don't have the luxury to waste time.

00:21:06--> 00:21:40

submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala what could enter and and he be who you are. And let the environments be with the environments. As long as you know and you know that you know, do not allow people to walk into your head with their dirty feet. Have you heard this statement? And it because everyone has views about what you should do and what you shouldn't do it they have when you go to university? Why are you studying this? Why don't you study that? Why don't you take the subject? Why don't you take that subject and treat them to send you back then you want to write a registered thesis. You should do this topic. Don't do that topic. Why did you do that topic? Kenny this

00:21:40--> 00:22:02

opinions everywhere. Everyone has opinions, right? Who you should marry when you should marry where you should marry? How you should vary right? How many kids you should have any house yeah, and everyone has opinions. If you this character who is defined by the trending views, then guess what trends come and they go

00:22:03--> 00:22:08

which means you will come and you will go and then you will be in a cycle of trying to find yourself again.

00:22:10--> 00:22:44

But what is static, the hack? The Quran, the Sunnah, the guidance Subhan Allah, Allah protected us have no doubt Allah protected but Allah told us why he protected him because he was from the sincere. So Allah chose him in the home in a bed in a Macula scene of your camera, rewire meclizine for Canon McAleenan fissara McGlasson Subhanallah he was a vocalist he was sincere. So Allah chose him he became from the chosen and when Allah chooses, you can Valley Kalina serif and who sue our fascia. Allah subhanho wa Taala turns away

00:22:46--> 00:23:12

immorality sin from you, he blocks it away from you, he places impediments, obstacles in front of Sherpa and and his attack on you. Allah subhanho wa Taala does this. So Yusuf alayhi salam is telling them you want to listen to me, because what am I what I am about to tell you is the message of a person who knows who he is, and he knows that he knows who he is.

00:23:15--> 00:23:19

We always say knowledge this people when they interact with knowledge, there are four types.

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

The one who knows, and he knows that he knows.

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

Severe tell them and COVID will reveal willingly. Anyway, he knows and he knows that he knows.

00:23:33--> 00:24:08

He knows and he knows that he knows this is use of either his center. And this is a squat. This is the one you should learn from. Then you have the one who thinks he knows what he doesn't know. This is misguided Miskin. This is a miskeen and impoverished, misguided person, because he thinks he knows everything. She thinks she knows everything. You can never teach them anything because they already know. They don't know. But they think that you know, what can you teach this person? This is an ignorant person. In fact, some of the scholars have said this is gehele markup. This is compounded ignorance Subhanallah it's the worst of the worst, then you have a person who doesn't

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

know and he knows that he doesn't know.

00:24:11--> 00:24:45

This is a stylish student. He doesn't know and he knows that he doesn't know. He's going to listen to you. Like these two people in the prison in terms of the dream, right in terms of the belief and act Ada, but Yousuf is going to correct the Arcadia side of things. And then you have a person and they re but they do exist. People who know but they don't know that they know. They know but they don't know that they know. These are people who lack self confidence. They they know the answer but this kid any yah full minute moussaka. They doubt that they know they feel I put up my handle answer but what if I'm wrong? I mean, they have.

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

They have this sort of anxiety, and they lack this confidence, right? Yusuf alayhi salam is from those who knows and he knows that he knows and this is what the Umbra of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should be there.

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

We know who we are. We are the servants of Allah. We are the followers of Muhammad Ali Abdullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, we should know it, and we should know that we know it, and nothing should serve us off it.

00:25:12--> 00:25:28

And this is what shape our job is to keep us guessing to keep us thinking to keep us guessing, cycle after cycle, cycle after cycle so that you use it you lose years from your life and yours from your life and your gender doesn't reflect your presence. Because remember, shaytan can take you to jahannam

00:25:29--> 00:25:46

he will reduce the quality of your gender. He won't just leave you Shavon won't just say I lost. I lost this person. I can't stop him praying. No, he will reduce the quality of your Salah. So he reduces your rewards. So he reduces urinary Phil agenda, your blessings in general that's what he will do.

00:25:47--> 00:25:48

That's what he will do.

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

Pamela

00:25:52--> 00:26:04

He will make you steal from yourself. How do you steal from your cell you steal from your Salah How do you steal from your Salah by not fighting the distractions that stop the Huzhou that is the key ingredient for your Salah.

00:26:06--> 00:26:12

And when your Salah becomes weaker then the salah cannot be the pillar of support to Eman to the pillar of faith

00:26:13--> 00:26:28

as the pillar of faith needs to remember Allah built Eman Islam upon five pillars, he built faith upon five pillars. You have a foundational pillar, which is should the showerhead then Allah put for supporting police, the Salah, Desica, the fasting and the Hajj.

00:26:30--> 00:26:35

But the strongest of these four supporting pillars is sada that's why it's five times a day every day.

00:26:37--> 00:26:56

It constantly feeds support to this main pillar, so it doesn't erode so it remains strong. If anything, it becomes stronger. It's as if when you pray five times a day every day you this Salah is taking water and pouring it on the concrete of the pillar of faith. When you pour water onto concrete, the concrete absorbs the water. Correct any builders here

00:26:58--> 00:27:45

what happens to after the concrete absorbs the water does it doesn't get harder, more consolidated. Hi, this is the salah to your email. This is the pillar of Salah to the pillar of iman. But when shaytan steals from your Salah, he reduces the quantity of water that you can pour onto the concrete of the pillar of your faith. And that's how he starts weakening your faith. Because remember your faith has to last 60 7080 years. It has to last and it has to last with the with all forms of weather. It has to weather all forms of storms think about it. The storm of Shubha the storm of shower, the storm of following desires and the storm of misconceptions. And the list of shadow words

00:27:45--> 00:27:59

following desires are countless and the list of Shewhart misconceptions are countless and every day in every minute in every second something is attacking is beating against your foundational pillar of email.

00:28:00--> 00:28:16

Every day erosion is happening. So five times a day you pouring water and fixing it it's like your panel beating it you keeping it okay moschella And winning I'm still okay. It took away this percentage we put it back it took away that percentage we put it back Subhanallah

00:28:17--> 00:28:47

so shaytaan will steal from your Salah He will make you steal from your Salah. If you can't take you to jahannam you will allow you to pray no doubt the Prayer is the key to Jannah but what will he do? He will steal from the prayer so your rewards are reduced which means your support to your pillar of faith is reduced which means your Eman is reduced, which means your deeds are reduced which means you Yochanan Allah is reduced your certainty. All this reduction leads to a reduction in rewards, the reduction in rewards will lead to a reduction in the quality of your paradise. For him it will be a win

00:28:49--> 00:28:55

because he seen Jana and he knows that there's Alfredo's and he knows that Allah has filters for his chosen ones.

00:28:56--> 00:29:01

So if you can't take you if you can't take you fully he'll take you partially

00:29:02--> 00:29:03

remember this

00:29:04--> 00:29:39

anyway, it's a long discussion, this whole identity crisis thing you know he needs a lecture in and of itself because today unfortunately Subhanallah This is from my travels from my experience with different communities. Unfortunately this is the C shaped man's biggest weapon right now. Making the Shabaab making the youth forget who they are. Forget the roots question their roots, even though their roots are established upon Huck the Quran and the Sunnah. Yes question the way of your forefathers when it goes against common sense when it goes against evidence, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the Quran asks the courage to do tells them question the way of your

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

forefathers. What if they were misguided? But you don't question the way of your forefathers when they guide it when their actions are backed by evidence, backed by evidence from the fitrah backed by evidence from Revelation, backed by evidence from sound intellect and an Oculus sorry. Now you added the pneus of say as

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

is the principle that we have any snap, that a pure mind cannot find itself contradicting, authentic evidence? Can't impossible, because this mind is from Allah. And the evidence is from Allah, the source is one perfect source.

00:30:14--> 00:30:52

But Academy in India radiola Hilah Raja 250 11 kathira if it was some other than Allah subhana, who had to Allah, you would have found much contradiction. They can never be contradiction between a pure mind and authentic revelation. So Yusuf alayhi salam is establishing himself as a leader. And ultimately this is leadership. You cannot be a leader if you have an identity crisis was the heel. If you don't know who you are, where you came from, where you're going, you don't have a vision, my brother, my sister, you cannot be a leader use of his telling these people, I am going to tell you something. And you need to recognize it's coming from a leader. It's coming from an authority.

00:30:54--> 00:31:21

You see how this is Made to Stick. If someone's talking to you, and you don't trust them, you have an extended trust. You imagine other things once they talk to you, maybe you entertain them out of respect, or jelly I mean, gee Anisha, Khloe mataram has asked me really, and my estimate and estimate Amaya estimate really any khalaby FEMA can offer it FEMA can. Or CV McCann, yeah. And sometimes you respect somebody.

00:31:22--> 00:31:29

What happens? You say, let me just give him time out of respect. I will hear the words that comes out of his mouth, but I won't be listening to him.

00:31:32--> 00:31:37

Right? It's how it's how we interact with people why we haven't extended trust to them.

00:31:39--> 00:31:49

When you extend trust to somebody, then you willing to listen to that advice. One of the ways through which trust is extended, especially in this day and age is to lay down your credentials. You see this.

00:31:51--> 00:32:09

You have someone who comes to you and he advise you don't know who he is. You don't listen to him. But the next day someone tells you Oh, mashallah, that guy spoke to you. You know, he's a professor in this. He's a consultant in that he thinks Allah knows him and Raji, I have to go, I have to rethink what he told me. He told me to do this, he thought we stopped listening. This is human nature.

00:32:10--> 00:32:23

It's human nature. So you people lay down their credentials, and we extend trust accordingly. Use of Allah he seldom has laid down his credentials. This is part of the mechanism in making information stick in the minds of other people Made to Stick.

00:32:24--> 00:32:39

What has he done? He's bought their time. Before he bought their time, his his behavior in a way that allowed them to give him trust, they've come to him out of everybody else. And this is true, because the speed of light is quicker than the speed of sound.

00:32:40--> 00:32:56

Right? You will receive the lightning before you hear the thunder. Is it Cavalli and Burke cobbler? Saffola Anissa? And if it's 30 Am permettant zilliqa?

00:32:58--> 00:33:03

You The general rule is the lightning comes and then you hear the time

00:33:04--> 00:33:31

because Thunder is the sound of lightning. Any sort of at the speed of light is this is physics. Who's a physician here who studied physics, who's a physicist rather? Nobody, anybody. There's There's a principle in physics, the speed of light is faster than the speed of sound. What do I mean by this from $1 perspective, from $1 perspective, people will see you before they hear you.

00:33:34--> 00:33:38

If they don't like what they see, they won't extend trust to listen to what you have to say.

00:33:40--> 00:33:43

For them to listen to you, they have to see something they like

00:33:45--> 00:33:49

that's how it is and so what the Messiah any there's extra responsibility.

00:33:51--> 00:34:00

You see, even in the books of Philip sometimes they will say that people have knowledge the judges for example, they should not eat in public when however Moruga

00:34:01--> 00:34:10

from the from from bad manners from that which reduces the station of a judge of a scholar is if he's eaten if he's eating in public

00:34:11--> 00:34:20

back in the day 10 Times have changed but different norms but the books are fifth discussed as why because the person of knowledge has a greater responsibility in maintaining

00:34:22--> 00:34:30

what people see Subhanallah because if they don't like what they see, they will reduce the value of the Quran and the Sunnah that he will teach them

00:34:32--> 00:34:46

he will release to them knowledge that is pure knowledge of value, but the container wasn't great. It's like I give you this as a bottle of water. MashAllah you drink it now look, why do they make the bottle? You think the water is blue? Look, it's blue. It looks blue right for those on camera.

00:34:48--> 00:34:57

They make the bottle Do you know that? This is Psychology? Yes. And they make the bottle slightly bluish so the water looks mashallah, Sofia.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

You want to drink you open? You don't

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

Be the certificate you don't you trust you extend trust you open it's all trust we're talking about extension of trust.

00:35:07--> 00:35:12

Why do you extend trust to this bottle of water? There's no certificate on it. I mean anyone could print these labels

00:35:14--> 00:35:23

Why do you trust that there's water inside it? Anyone could write pure spring water if I ask you now, is this spring water you'll say yes, I'll say why is it because it says pure spring water

00:35:26--> 00:35:27

that's what we always say

00:35:30--> 00:35:42

is it Bucha I mean there's there's we just everyone is water you will open it you will drink it you won't think what if it's poison What if I die any death is a real fear for you but you don't fear dying when you drink this

00:35:43--> 00:35:52

pipe? If this word if this bottle if the same water inside same water inside the road pure spring water right?

00:35:53--> 00:36:08

Mashallah. Okay, pure spring water. And it was the same water. But the bottle looked rusty. Look Today it looked like it came from the lavatory. May Allah preserve you or he Allah will you drink it?

00:36:10--> 00:36:19

Tada who's going to drink it? Let's be honest. Because the container Romanism great bonus if

00:36:20--> 00:36:54

the container isn't suitable. It made you it stopped you from extending trust to that which was inside. It stopped you extending trust to pure spring water that's written on the bottom correct or not? Right. This is why even with the Quran the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Haseen was wild to find the salt that has an acetal Khurana husana The Quran has meanings are beautiful, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said beautify your voice when you recite the Quran. Because your voice is the container for the Quran. Shakib and basil Rahim Allah used to say

00:36:56--> 00:37:21

the former Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Rahim Allah, he used to say Subhan Allah this Quran is kingdom of Allah. It still is the it's the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala basica VALIC. Right. It's the words of Allah. If an old man with a grumpy voice recited the Quran on a speaker and it hurt people's ears when people listen to the Quran will block the ears and run away Subhanallah not correct.

00:37:22--> 00:37:26

Sweet message. I can have a column or the Cunnamulla like your mother Hassan

00:37:28--> 00:37:40

it's the words of Allah but the container that it came to you in wasn't wasn't Subhanallah Munna as if it wasn't suitable. Take a young boy who doesn't understand the Quran. But he reads it in a beautiful voice.

00:37:41--> 00:37:51

And it be either in German, with with with with an articulation that is beautiful, what happens? Even an elderly person will listen to this child with the Quran.

00:37:53--> 00:37:54

Because it sounds beautiful, isn't it?

00:37:56--> 00:38:12

And how many people have accepted Islam because they were in a hospital and next to them was a personal reciting the Quran with a beautiful voice or they were listening to a party who had a beautiful voice and they became interested. They didn't know it was the Quran. So Hanalei had a story recently of a person who,

00:38:14--> 00:38:33

whose neighbor came to him and marginalized to play his Quran a bit loud, whether you should pray the Quran loud, this is another matter, we shouldn't disturb people. But you know, he used to play his Quran loud. So the neighbor came to him and said, This music is really cool. Yeah. This is cool music. So he said, Yeah, he didn't say anything. He said, Can I, I need this. So he gave it to him.

00:38:35--> 00:39:04

He gave him the surah with the chef, and he's listening to it. He thinks his music. After some time he said it's can be music Subhanallah shuffle Quran, the Quran, it transforms you. Whether you want to be transformed or not. You listen to it, you listen to it. It will always make you a better person than you were before you started. This is the Quran. It's amazing. It's amazing. Some people disorder, they are going through extreme depression. They're going through difficulty you you they listen to the Quran.

00:39:05--> 00:39:08

They feel like they can breathe after they can't explain it but it's done something to them.

00:39:10--> 00:39:29

This neighbor, non Muslim neighbor, listen to the Quran, listen to the Quran, listen to the Quran, listen to the Quran, listen to his music. After some time, they started doubting that can be music, they started researching. They started researching they found out the Scripture. They research some more they found the Quran they started reading the Quran they accepted Islam

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

100

00:39:35--> 00:39:40

or movement that's a footnote to this but the point is, you have to walk the talk.

00:39:41--> 00:39:49

You have to manage yourself and the our scholars even tell us you are the Imam of the Masjid. You are the hub of the Masjid. You are the curvy

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

Shahzad Yanni you have to dress properly. And you have the shimmer of motherboard. You have to be you have to you can't

00:40:00--> 00:40:28

Go with an iron the clothes and you know the T mark there and the timer mark there and the gawa mark there and people see you and you're trying to be humble No, but now you misrepresenting the knowledge that you have, especially in the day and age. We live in a day and age with a personality trait is on steroids. Let's be honest, there's two there's two traits. You have the personality trait and you have the character trait. The character trait is who you are.

00:40:31--> 00:40:39

Who You Are and the assassin. Your reality who you are, that's the character trait. The personality trait is who you show people you are

00:40:42--> 00:41:15

you get some people mashallah they come here Murata via the haze, comb sharp, the clothes are sharp. They wear the cufflinks the tie, everything is sharp. And you think this person he must be super precise precision clean. But if you go into his car dirty, everything's all over the place. You go to his house, the drawers filthy. The bedrooms everything's untidy clothes here clothes, they're not in his place. You see, but nobody can see what's how he skies, and some people tend to cover the darker McDuck Windows nobody can see inside.

00:41:16--> 00:41:25

Nobody can see his car. Nobody can see his home. So who cares if he knew that people will judge him by looking at his car, he will have his car clean.

00:41:27--> 00:41:47

The person who has character trait they are clean by default they don't try and do things to make an impression. This is the social media age the filters age everything is filter go Instagram there's a filter and there's a filter the camera my smartphone has a filter you put a filter here Why do you have filters?

00:41:48--> 00:41:52

Lash you What are you filtering out you filtering what you don't want people to see

00:41:53--> 00:42:00

that's what a filter is. Everybody is there you know some And subhanAllah I'm traveling I see this at the airport I see this

00:42:01--> 00:42:11

in the plane you know they take the picture decide the sides better huh? Then they take the picture they look now it's not good then they have to fix themselves then they take the

00:42:13--> 00:42:15

skin any 10 minutes

00:42:16--> 00:42:34

15 minutes 20 minutes Soraka then they are playing with the filters. And what can I do? Isn't it the guy is next to me. I mean, the person is next to me. And he's not hiding it's doing it even if you don't want to look you have to see what he's doing

00:42:37--> 00:42:44

this is what people are wasting their time on the show. Then when COVID came from the front filter we got the back filter

00:42:46--> 00:42:53

that gave you filters for your back and you go and zoom mashallah where is this person? Yeah he mashallah in the bed here Did you have new you have a new house

00:42:55--> 00:43:14

mashallah he put a green screen and zoom gives you this? I don't know if you guys saw the zoom thing. One guy is on space. One guy is on the beach in the Bahamas. I have as friend filter and back filter. What more do you want, or movement. This is just on a lighter note. The point is, we live in this personality age

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

where everything is the show.

00:43:17--> 00:43:23

So if you have the HAC and you don't look the part who's going to take it from you,

00:43:25--> 00:44:05

who is going to take it from you now I'm not preaching extravagance, I'm not preaching you need to make money through haram means because you need to buy nice clothes, etc. Know within your means. Whatever you have, but wear it give it its Huck. Give it a few if whatever you have, no matter how old your shirt is, but if you wear it, give it its Huck, especially if you're a dairy, especially if if people see you as a Muslim is very important. So Yusuf alayhi salam, he is hearing testimony from them, that we have come to you in Naraka we see you mean and maximium we see you as someone who is of caliber of stature, from the from the Dewar's of good

00:44:06--> 00:44:28

so they gave him trust. Then he built on that he got more trust from them. He He laid down to them his identity, and then he built more trust by laying down to them his credentials in a humble way. He's not doing it in a cringe worthy way. Sometimes we do things that are cringe worthy I am and I am and I am I have this and I have that we're in the dark.

00:44:29--> 00:44:51

Dora together. We're come Magisterium D work. I have so many master's degrees I have this is sometimes this doesn't rub people the right way. People feel that this person is arrogant is trying to show off used to be doing in a beautiful way. Say what about the military? I bet he he's telling them in action. That you know, by the way, I follow the way of my forefathers and my forefathers were prophets.

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

So it's so beautiful Subhanallah now he's built these credentials.

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

He goes on to teach them that you

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

Oh, my forefathers. He doesn't say me. He says my forefathers. He doesn't say me. He says my forefathers. He says Mark and Elena and Lucia Kabila.

00:45:11--> 00:45:15

He goes we never ever used to associate partners with Allah. This is the heat.

00:45:16--> 00:45:18

And they came to him

00:45:19--> 00:45:26

for a dream interpretation. He is saying to them, you want something from me, but you actually need something from me.

00:45:28--> 00:45:32

And before I give you what you want, I'm going to give you what you need.

00:45:33--> 00:45:44

Out of the need and want you know the difference want me Rojava need your any Hajra

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

alhaja

00:45:48--> 00:45:52

Kenny Akbar Roman zealots Hanuman Raha basica Malik

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

and the other Arab

00:45:56--> 00:45:56

lacking and

00:45:58--> 00:46:26

there's a difference here use of is telling them you need some you want something from me but there's something you need. I'm going to give you what you need before you want something. And this is from the methodology have moved the methodology of adapt. And I said this I shared an example yesterday about the people on the sea. Right, it's good we can repeat because people were pretty tired yesterday. I don't know it's the holidays. I was gonna say people partying too hard, but you can't be partying Ramadan.

00:46:28--> 00:47:02

So HELOCs will repeat it inshallah. Remember when we said the sea men came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, those who work on the sea, the sea men, right they work on the sea. They said to the prophets of Allah, Allah was in Kabul, we are sailors, we, we traverse the seas, and we have limited water supply, limited water supply. In addition, if we perform will do with the water that we have, we will be thirsty, because we won't have water to drink. And we can't drink the water of the sea because the water of the sea is salty

00:47:08--> 00:47:09

me

00:47:11--> 00:47:22

so what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to them, they came to the province of Allahu alayhi wasallam with a want and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recognized that they also need to know something that they're not asking about.

00:47:24--> 00:47:41

So what did he say to them? He said, Who or whom or who? I'll hit do Mater two. He said the water of the sea is the hood. It's suitable for you to use for wudu and the dead fish of the sea is halal for you to eat as well. If you guys want to see you saying you get thirsty, you might get hungry one day

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

and I'll be far away from you.

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

And if you're hungry, you could die out of hunger. There's there's a knowledge that you need that you are asking about. You talking about water what happens if you run out of food

00:47:57--> 00:48:20

have them in check in W sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you can live Oh, this is from the flick of a prophet. And this is studied in asmall. Mufti in the books that tell you how to do fatwa in when you study Sharia. When when you studied the books of pseudo fake and they talk about Bab el Mufti well Mustafi the Mufti and the seeker of the fatwa

00:48:22--> 00:48:48

and the rules and etiquettes and guidelines that govern that relationship, the teachers that the Mufti has to, it has to look at things not just from the micro perspective, but from the macro perspective, that when the Mustafi comes to you is asking you about a micrometer, right? But you need to understand the situation. So you can see that micro from the macro perspective as well. So you can be completing the guidance that you offer him. This is how the Quran teaches us anyway.

00:48:49--> 00:48:51

And this is important for parents to know as well.

00:48:52--> 00:48:58

A lot of the times our children come to us, obviously, at the micro level, they come to us in specifics.

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

But parenting leads that you take the time to analyze the source of the question that they have. So you can tap into the macro environment through which the micro question came about from and accordingly, you can teach them what they want to know and also what they need to know.

00:49:19--> 00:49:22

And let's say you can't you have to give your children time.

00:49:23--> 00:49:27

You can't just be multitasking in racing, when you raise them

00:49:28--> 00:49:46

that you're doing something and they came and they asked you the question and you just said Yeah, okay. And yeah, it will because when you get them a half baked answer, or even a full answer, but it's always going to be half baked if you didn't tap into the cause for the question. Because they have that mind that deserves that application. And they are you ready? Yeah. could look

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

at there are a year the flock of a scholar or those who come to the school and seek guidance. The flock of a parent are the children of those parents. So a parent to that

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

Children. The relationship is similar to the relationship of a Mufti to domesticity.

00:50:06--> 00:50:26

Do you see this? So use of Alayhis Salam is giving them what they want, but before he gives them what they want is giving them what they need. Why is he giving them what they need first. This is fixed as well. What's happening here My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam USofA knows if I give these people what they want, they'll go hulless phantasmal force

00:50:28--> 00:50:52

fettered in fossa, the fossa has gone. So use very seldom is holding on what they want. So they stay to get what they need. Well admin credential as well. This is from how you interact with people making your ideas stick with them. Sometimes you can give them what they want and then give them what they need like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasalam did with the sailors. He gave them what they wanted for who to whom

00:50:53--> 00:51:33

he answered the question of final thought though and Intuit gonna be here officially offended offended thought that will be mailed by all who uphold oh man oh, he answered. They want first and then he gave them what they needed after why because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam didn't fear these people leaving him after he gave them what they wanted. Correct? I sent you guys are with me today. But use of situations different use of is dealing with people who can't be bothered about Allah, et cetera they are already in there on the misguidance and they are in a prison high stress environment. You know, if I tell them the interpretation of the dream, one guy is going to be killed

00:51:35--> 00:51:54

that's what's going to happen. He's not going to listen to the doubt or he's going to be stressed about death penalty about what the heck Maccabi what's, what's the judge going to rule? So he's whilst in the home? Yeah, and he they have enough salary. They have a settled demeanor. They are in the mode for conversation.

00:51:57--> 00:51:58

He teaches them about Tawheed

00:51:59--> 00:52:40

he says my cannula language Rekha bIllahi min che we never ever associated partners with Allah. And he says min che Subhanallah he didn't just say Monica and Elena and Lucia Kabila. We never ever associated partners with Allah. He says we never ever in the minute test form associated partners with Allah many che even in the smallest form. It's nonexistent in our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala that even this the hour that I'm giving you, I'm doing it for Allah subhanahu itad Even me talking to you right now, I'm doing it for Allah subhanho wa Taala this is a bad is for Allah.

00:52:41--> 00:53:17

As if he's highlighting to them warmer as Allah Kumar lay him in Azure. I'm not asking you for compensation. I'm not asking you to pay me after I have the sitting with you. This is not a consultation session even say I'm booking advisory session and booking a consultation session. How much does it cost? There's no cost here. I don't want any favors from you. You Don't imprison the two favors. Okay? I'll do this for you. But you need to do me a favor. Who which connections do you have? Which gods do you know? You know, it's the prison culture. May Allah save us from it? May Allah save us from it and for our brothers and sisters who are in it, may Allah give them Tibet and

00:53:17--> 00:53:57

guidance and remove them from the difficulty. I mean, you have been hella mean. But what happens when you in the prison, you have to survive. So use of is immediately telling them mean che. What I am telling you is, beloved advice from a brother to a brother, meaning from a brother to you from a human being to a human being. There's no ulterior motives here because this is a bad day for me. This is the hour for me, and me and my forefathers, we never ever associate partners with Allah. We never associate Eve and money with Allah subhanho wa taala. And we don't, we don't worship Allah, for the sake of money, we worship Allah for the sake of Allah.

00:53:58--> 00:54:13

And this is important. The scholars talk about even those, for example, in the books of those who do hedge better than those who go and do hedge near button on behalf of somebody else. So they get paid to go for hedge. Right? So they'd have this discussion, men

00:54:17--> 00:54:20

with Lee edge, a hedge

00:54:22--> 00:54:24

or many hedge

00:54:25--> 00:54:27

li agile elkus.

00:54:28--> 00:54:37

Woman yet the agilely a hedge there's a difference between the person who does hedge for money and the person who takes money to go for hedge

00:54:38--> 00:54:46

it's a discussion within this Congress that you cannot say I'm doing hedge primarily as a business man, this is I'm going to you know, pay me to go to hedge for you.

00:54:48--> 00:54:52

Well, your intention is null and void. But when OSFI

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

then a near whole cost your intention

00:55:00--> 00:55:23

And is about intent. And your intent has to be about Allah not money. But this is a side discussion just to make you understand how to use of has built all this trust and even in the process he's introducing Allah to them he's introducing him Rob to them he's introducing Allah as one to them that Subhanallah after seeing this now they're interested they have questions they have ideas use of it he Salam goes on to say

00:55:25--> 00:55:33

they only come in from the law here Elena or alumnus hon Allah Yeah, HIV Allah who we need two hours Yeah, me here. This this topic.

00:55:36--> 00:55:46

I'm afraid if I come back tomorrow, I have to summarize because there'll be new faces here and they won't pick up what we're saying. La ilaha illAllah. You can write a book on this. Sarah Hudson you can write a book.

00:55:49--> 00:55:54

The techniques of transferring ideas to people from Surah Yusuf Saba

00:55:56--> 00:56:16

because look after he sadly introduced them to Allah subhanho wa taala. Remember, he's building trust. All this time. If you think he's doing Dawa, he is doing the hour but he's doing it so eloquently. Primarily what he's doing here is building trust. He's building trust. He's building the Dow is coming back to your Sahiba usage or Babu Bucha it's coming.

00:56:17--> 00:56:58

The dollar is coming. Right now he's building trust. And in this format, he's introducing them to Allah and a lot of ideas. And guess what he comes in with, I don't know what you can call it. And you want to call this the left hook, the the, you know, the knockout punch. He says Then he come in from the law here, Elena or alumnus, or like in the extra nasty day Ashkelon. He says Subhanallah you know this thing I'm telling you about? You know, today people talk about what what what's the thing people don't buy crypto. And this is where everyone needs to be. You create this FOMO you know what FOMO is FOMO fear of missing out and I don't think I dress like this I have been funny.

00:56:59--> 00:57:00

With the Khalifa and the backwards

00:57:02--> 00:57:04

we know the language of the Shabaab

00:57:05--> 00:57:08

FOMO. Fear Of Missing Out

00:57:09--> 00:57:11

he's creating FOMO here

00:57:12--> 00:57:15

use of his creating a sense of FOMO

00:57:17--> 00:57:30

that's what he's doing. You know, if people say this crypto you have to buy and they drive up interest and then people start buying it and the price goes up because everybody's nobody understands it but they just don't want to lose out use of it. He Salam is creating a sense of FOMO here.

00:57:31--> 00:57:55

He's saying guys, this thing that I'm telling you about is from the blessings of Allah upon me and the people the select people. But you know what? Most of mankind they don't know. What do people do now when they come to you and try and sell you some shares? sell you some NFT sell you some cryptocurrency or do they come to you? They say listen, listen, before people come on, you get in.

00:57:57--> 00:58:37

You get in now by now before the rush comes here, you benefit now because once the rush comes, the price is gonna go up, you're going to lose out. This is what people do. You create urgency, right? We spoke about creating urgency to stop people pro procrastinating. Allahu Akbar. This is like a formula because it's connected. I was I was concerned my introduction, a little cut that was too long. But now we can connect that introduction to this. I told you to help you search for data to gather, create urgency, use of it. He said it is creating urgency Made to Stick you are keeping their prefrontal cortex on you. Do you know what the prefrontal cortex is? Pfc. The prefrontal

00:58:37--> 00:58:39

cortex is the front part of your brain.

00:58:40--> 00:58:48

It is where active thinking takes place. When you're doing damage to people. You want to keep the focus of the prefrontal cortex on you

00:58:51--> 00:58:52

know

00:58:54--> 00:59:12

so active thinking takes place and the prefrontal cortex guess what is clearly quickly distracted, because it cannot hold more than three or four active thoughts at one time. And that's what a trained mind the trained mind may be four or five active thoughts at once.

00:59:14--> 00:59:30

If you think if your prefrontal cortex let's say it can hold four things, and it's full and you bring a fifth thing into your mind one of these four things is gonna go you see this it happens to us centers we talking. What was I think Hala sometimes we looking for our keys, we go into a room Why did I come here?

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

Oh, yeah, my keys.

00:59:35--> 00:59:40

What's happening in that moment, you allowed something else into your prefrontal cortex and something gave away.

00:59:42--> 00:59:49

But because it fell just here, you can pick it up quickly. And you can remember say, Oh, my keys, but when you did that something else fell out.

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

But it's quickly retrievable, because it's around you think of the prefrontal cortex as as the size of this table. How many Shabaab can we put on this table?

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

only three people. How many people can stand here, maybe three here, and there'll be squashed. This is a pretty small table. Three people, and maybe one guy will be almost falling there. So the other two will be holding him. And that guy will be falling and the guy in the middle is holding them together, babe. Let's say the fourth guy jumps on the table, what's going to happen?

01:00:17--> 01:00:50

Someone is going to fall off, isn't it, but he's going to fall off just here, just here. You know who fell off, you can bring him back. But for him to come back, someone else has to fall off, isn't it? So that's how you can retrieve it quickly because it's just here. But if you give it some time, hello, as it will be far away. If 10 kilometers away, then you'll be thinking, what was I thinking about? an hour, it's very easy. Now it's hard for you to recollect a moment. The prefrontal cortex is where active thinking takes place. When you teach people you need to keep the PFC engaged the prefrontal cortex.

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

When you give power to people, you have to keep the PFC engaged.

01:00:55--> 01:01:09

And so when I teach I don't like distractions. And the age of the camera it happens I mean the classroom I'm teaching and then the car something happens to the camera. People started focusing on the camera man is doing his thing. Everybody stops looking at me they start looking at him.

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

Now it started happens I'm sure you guys are victims of this as well. You've been in a lesson and something happens and you and you in a lesson and your phone beeps now. My phone or you're watching on my mosquito smartwatch

01:01:24--> 01:01:26

or even in the solid this is

01:01:30--> 01:01:34

nice to say this the people who say should have a smartwatch I say how do you pray they What do you mean?

01:01:35--> 01:01:51

They didn't think about it. Anyway, think about it, the athlete that you have to keep your prefrontal cortex focused on your Salah when this thing starts going in your Salah. You are thinking which Salah Am I praying the daughter Asana which raka Am I in two or three? They will Surah my reading

01:01:52--> 01:02:12

will also in the Athena call with her with Surah already you are thinking of so many things, then your phone calls this now you think he was on the phone? Who could be messaging me Who could be calling me now you thinking that Ilaha illa Allah Am I in the second Rocklahoma and the third aka Allah hediki you are praying your Salah with distractions.

01:02:13--> 01:02:21

At least switch that put it on silent mode, isn't it there's a feature on the phone that can shut down all notifications for your Salah, switch off the Bluetooth.

01:02:22--> 01:02:39

Don't have the distractions or Roman Yusuf alayhi salam is teaching us yaki mill capitalism and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we always talk about 1400 years ago, from the time of use of his teaching us about the prefrontal cortex and keeping it engaged especially when you teach people about Allah.

01:02:40--> 01:03:04

He's creating FOMO that guys, this is the this is the jackpot here. This is the federal law. This is where it is. This is ultimate success. Getting quickly getting soon before you lose out fairly common formula here and in Arlen Ness, what a messy law is cruel. Most people I'm thankful meaning most people are ungrateful, meaning most people don't know. Most people don't know this Tada.

01:03:06--> 01:03:43

It's like when they say when people the people who bought Bitcoin in 2008 or 2009 or 2010 You're only hitting my lamp Yakushi and when it was nothing, when Bitcoin suddenly became something that was mining, somebody had like 50 Bitcoins, somebody was telling me he says, I have bitcoins locked in an old computer, the hard drive I can't switch it on Allahumma Stan and if we used to think about it, he was into computers Yeah, and he just for fun bought some bitcoins imagine but he didn't think he would ever be anything. And the hard disk is colorless. The heart this cannot be revived. Subhanallah I said the script that Allah Masha, you will only eat from the risk that Allah has

01:03:43--> 01:03:54

written for you. And we have some people Masha Allah who had it Subhanallah they had five coins and that was it. And subhanAllah then it started selling for 50,000 US dollars per coin

01:03:56--> 01:04:03

suddenly he's buys himself a house with five Bitcoins that he got for like five US dollars, or two and a half US dollars. This is

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

anyway, we are digressing we are digressing.

01:04:07--> 01:04:10

FOMO that's the point.

01:04:11--> 01:04:27

You want to get people in you got to present the DNA. You got to bring it to them on a platter. You got to bring the meal to them with the smoke coming out. You know, they talk about when mashallah wherever I go people don't want the bdn

01:04:28--> 01:04:36

journey because it has aromas and but when you serve the biryani and it's not piping hot, does it taste the same like when is piping hot?

01:04:37--> 01:04:40

No. When why when it's piping hot and the smoke is coming out your nose

01:04:42--> 01:04:46

is smelling Subhanallah we're not fasting so we can mashallah they are watching live they must be fasting.

01:04:47--> 01:04:55

People in the western part of the globe are watching Allah understand and we ask their forgiveness. But we have to talk to the people here before we talk to the virtual people.

01:04:56--> 01:05:00

It's part of the hour as well. Sometimes Subhanallah we talk to people

01:05:00--> 01:05:16

On the phone and the guy in front of us we make him wait. Any internet shucks. How Ramona oh no curiosity militia somebody come? Yeah, the guys in front of us we say just wait and we take the phone call. No this is bad manners give the people in front of you precedence over the people who are following

01:05:19--> 01:05:27

you see my prefrontal cortex distorted now what was I talking about about the biryani so when you smell the biryani

01:05:28--> 01:06:01

does it make the beer really tastes better? Someone was telling me just the other day who was it by her? We were talking about this, huh? It was well we got together and we had this conversation. I'm trying to think very recently we had this conversation that someone was telling me in Sydney Subhanallah in Sydney, that Chef Your body knows when it's time to eat because when it sees food when it sees the food, then the brain reacts releasing the saliva and all the necessary taste components. So you have the desire to eat the food.

01:06:03--> 01:06:27

Okay, so when you serve the biryani How should you serve it? You have to serve it in a way that creates desire. Use Vida Hee Salah was serving the DA with the Masha Allah that aromas with the smoke with the sense so that it makes the mind makes the heart makes the emotions makes their senses want to partake of this Naseeha

01:06:28--> 01:06:29

Are you with me Jamar

01:06:31--> 01:06:58

and also somebody to the job well just now the weather is going too long today but while it's just bear with me I have to get through this otherwise I will have to repeat it tomorrow use of it he said MCs yeah so he basically and at that hour by that you can say that our L Mubasher. First it was the hour but non direct hour now with direct our ya Sahiba you're switching to how beautifully he addresses them with Adam. With respect.

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

Allowing them to give you more trust. He doesn't go to them. Oh criminals yeah Moogerah Moon now he didn't say I'm moving we are so heavy CG

01:07:09--> 01:07:11

O companions

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

of the prison.

01:07:14--> 01:07:14

Mara yoke.

01:07:16--> 01:07:17

Mer you

01:07:19--> 01:07:21

I told you we need a book from this.

01:07:23--> 01:07:38

Made to Stick is his making the message stick? You also have precision, oh companions of the present. Or Birbhum whatever reckon, he says are many gods Gods better. Oh,

01:07:40--> 01:07:46

worshipping Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who is the one that irresistible let's which is better.

01:07:51--> 01:08:08

Now use of an ACM noses dancer or a psychedelic use of nose worshipping one Allah is better than worshipping many gods. So his use of asking them a question. No, he's not. This is called a rhetorical question. A rhetorical question when you ask a question to make somebody think

01:08:09--> 01:08:52

that he is so perfect in his the hour. He's telling them you've extended to me trust I'm going to extend to you trust. I see you as intelligent people who have the faculty to realize the error of their ways. I don't have to spell it out for you, you know the answer. But I'm going to give you the trigger to help you reach the the this answer that you need. He's given them a trigger. He asked he poses to them a rhetorical question. And then he says my Taboola mean do any what you worship, the things the things that you worship other than Allah, and nothing besides names, some made to Musa that you named them and to you and your forefathers are Abell commands and Allah Who behind me to

01:08:52--> 01:08:56

plant the true Allah who deserves to be worshipped. He didn't send any evidence for this.

01:09:00--> 01:09:39

Now he's becoming prescriptive. Sometimes you have to be prescriptive. Sometimes you can advise, but sometimes you need to prescribe. Now he's not prescribing, he is prescribing but in a in a very diligent way. You could say he's criticizing, but can you see how this criticism will be received? This criticism will be received in such a subtle way. Why? Because of how he built his cayenne. His his his structure for his Dawa is so solid, that when he criticizes, he's talking to people who trust Him, they will give him a personal one. They will see it they will see the best side of what he's saying and not see it as an attack to them. Can you see this?

01:09:40--> 01:09:49

He's criticized because whatever you are, shipping is nothing but names. If he didn't have this introduction, before he said this, they would say You are insulting our gods.

01:09:51--> 01:09:56

That's what they will say we're not going to listen to you. You insulting our forefathers. We're not going to listen to you.

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

That he may receive it. Anyway.

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

Shout out to southern.

01:10:02--> 01:10:06

They receive it with an open heart. Why? Because he's built

01:10:08--> 01:10:11

his courses in how he's serving his bow.

01:10:12--> 01:10:14

Then he says, In Ilfracombe, Will, Adela.

01:10:15--> 01:10:19

He says the Sharia law of Allah is only for Allah.

01:10:20--> 01:10:53

Only Allah can legislate. Only Allah can legislate. I'm telling you, that what you worship has no evidence, Allah has said no evidence. And I'm also telling you that only the Allah who deserves to be worshipped, he is the Allah who can tell who can give us the Hohokam, who can give us the rules, who can tell us what to do when to do it and how to do it. And then he says, If this is Allah, and this is what Allah can do, Amara, Allah taboo in the year, Allah has commanded that you worship nothing but him.

01:10:55--> 01:11:03

Then he Kadima will time this is the true D this is the dean of value, the Dean this is the way of value, this is the subscription of value.

01:11:05--> 01:11:42

And then he says well I can carnesi Elia animal, or like indica, naskila Lemonwood most of men no, not. Inshallah, we'll end here when we come back tomorrow we'll talk about trends and then we'll go into use of interpretation of the dream is Aquila heaven for your patients, my dearest Brothers and Sisters in Islam perhaps this is part of the training for the last time of Ramadan, the long sitting is part of the training inshallah for what is to come tomorrow night to be the letter Allah in terms of all the bad we will plan tonight to do insha Allah may Allah subhanho wa Taala preserve us in His obedience Amin and may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us with better than we dream off in both
