every Muslim organization has two doors.
It has a front door by which people become Muslim.
I came to that front door you should Evans came to the front door mm Zay Chuck here came to that front door use of Esther's use of Islam,
All of us we came to that front door Alhamdulillah and became Muslim.
But on the other hand, every Masjid every Muslim organization have a back door
by which people leave the fold of Islam.
The job of the Imams the shoe of the scholars is to open wide the front door
and close the back door
if you ask the question
who stand you say are you Muslim? Yeah, I Muslim gay I'm Muslim
do you make Salah
Makes a lot but I'm a Muslim
Do you fast the month Ramadan yeah no no no i don't i don't i don't ask the month of Ramadan but I'm a Muslim Do you give the cat no I don't give the cat
amen came to the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them we want to know about Islam.
And the Prophet said he began to teach him some Salawat Shalala
five prayers a day.
The man said, hell Allah.
He said, Is anything more than a 5%? That's it. He said yes. He said that's it except what is extra.
And then the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said cmo Shanti Ramadan
is incumbent upon you to fast in the month of Ramadan Allah hell Elijah gray Rui is any more fasting than this color
in the UN.
Except what is extra?
Then the Prophet he mentions the cat
Allah, hallelujah guru had more more than this call Allah
except what is extra?
So that's it. Five prayers today fasting in the month of Ramadan, Givens the cat, and the man turned away he said will lie. Let z do Allah have the wallet and co Minho.
He said I swear by Allah I will neither increase that or decrease
makalah li salat wa salam, escuela in Sadako.
He will be successful.
If he does that
by prayers a day.
There are some sitting here who don't make prayer five times a day.
And I'll tell you something.
Do you remember when the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam was given the commandment from Allah for Salat?
For the Lord Allah Almighty from sin. Select
Allah ordered my own man to make 50 prayers a day.
Listen to what he said. Morocco,
Morocco, Allah Moosa.
I returned with it. the commandment of 50 prayers a day is our Prophet. Allah told him, told him what to do. He said, Okay. 50 press a day, no arguments, no debate, no rebuttal. 50 prayers a day. I returned with it until I met mousseline salat wa salam, stop for a moment.
Do a little math.
If we had to pray 50 prayers a day, the entire day.
How often would we have to make prayer?
Every 28.8 minutes.
You would have to make prayer.
no accident that Allah recorded that. Why didn't Allah tell the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam, five prayers a day? Because he's teaching a lesson.
So he wants to Moses and Moses said the What did your Lord commend you for your own man? He said
50 prayers canosa. For a jet in Arabic in automatica led to Tico Derek.
Go back to your Lord.
Your own man will not be able to do 50 prayers a day how Moses no Moses experienced.
He had to deal with people he had to deal with human beings. He knows his experience is too much. Go back to your Lord and ask him to reduce it. And the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam goes back to Allah. Allah reduces it. In every time Allah reduces it and goes back to Moses, Elisa that was an R Moosa says, For JT Leroy Baker go back to your Lord. Yama would not be able to pray 50 prayers a day. Until finally
it's five prayers a day.
With the musasa four digit picker in omata Kala to
to your Lord
asked him to reduce it. Your own man would not be able to do five prayers a day.
And the Prophet was too shy. And the Lord revealed.
His humps it's five but it's 50. And God, Allah rewarded us as if we pray 50 prayers a day stop.
One year I was in a city in America. And I had to lead to eat salad and goodbye.
And the prayer was about 830 in the morning.
And as I'm sitting there getting ready for the salaat
an organizer, he takes the mic.
He says our brothers and sisters in arms Raj is about to lead select our aid.
But it's important. If any of you miss 5g prayer this morning, you should get up now and pray the 5g prayer before we pray the prayer.
Now I'm facing my back is to the to the people so I'm saying I'm not going to look to see how many people get up to make 5g prayer at you know 830 in the morning.
But I heard this rumbling noise movement.
And I just had to take a look.
An attorney turned around
and behold the number of people who were standing up
Making fun of prayer.
Way before fudger prayer was over.
I don't I don't know percentage 45% 50 I don't know. But I know a lot of people stood up
there some of us saying all make prayer five times a day. Are you kidding me?
I was also research and let me share this with you.
Although 64% of the French population
that's 41 point 6 million French people
identified as Roman Catholic
64% as 41.6% out of the 65,000,060 5,000,041 point 6 million,
identify themselves as Roman Catholic, but listen to this.
Only 4.5% of those were actually practicing Catholics.
According to the French Institute of Public opinion,
Why say this?
The Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said, you will follow the people that came before you step by step an inch by inch so that if they crawled in the hole of a lizard, you will crawl right behind them. Who are you who would win the Sora conifer men? You the Christians and the Jews, we will follow the same thing he said Who else?
Are we like that now? call ourselves Muslims Muslim.
I'm a Muslim. If you are a Muslim, if you are a slow if you are Norway, if you're Muslim, you in Denmark, you in Sweden, if you are in Europe, if you're Muslim,
have then can you be like everyone else? If you're like everyone else, what's the difference?
According to the World Health Organization, every day 100 million excellencies around the world that results in 910,000 conceptions a day.
350,000 sexually transmitted diseases a day 150,000 abortions a day.
Now sisters, can you excuse me for one minute I want to talk to the brothers can I? Yes. Brothers Listen to me the sisters they can't hear us.
I wanted to answer. How many of you brothers
are you attracted to females? Raise your hand.
One brother got two hands up.
For you who didn't raise your hand.
Talk to me after my lecture. We have to have a talk.
You can't help yourself.
God created you that way.
Made you attracted to a female he knows it. And this is why the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said that I have not left the trial more difficult for man than a woman.
We know brother that you attracted to women No problem, but marry them.
You marry them. You don't have illegal intimacy between man and woman. You're married. If you want to have a woman you marry her you take care of her.
That's what it's all about.
You Allah give us the hell out.
He gave us so much he allowed to drink you can drink water. You can drink juice. You can drink coffee. You can drink tea. You can all of these things to drink but now you have to have alcohol. Why?
Why do you have to have alcohol?
Why you have to smoke weed you know we call a weed would you call it marijuana?
Muslim told me so. Amen. Suraj if Allah blessed me to go to Jana, all I want to do is smoke weed.
it's your story.
We want Allah subhana wa Taala to make us pleased with what is Hello Are you Muslim? I only eat Hello only drink Hello. I'm not gonna drink that. I'm not going to do that because other Muslim Muslim
So now we got to come out of the janelia and we got to come into unto Islam.
want to ask you a question.
Does anyone doubt
Authenticity of Omar, Al Khattab? Any of you?
Raise your hand. How many of you think that he will go to Jen raise your hand?
We learned a lot of things about Omar Abdullah and let's just say a few.
Number one, the prophet may Allah Hama, Islam, the Abidjan even a sham Omar Ibn Al Kitab. He may Allah strengthen Islam by either Abuja and even a sham Omar Ibn Al Khattab and Omar he becomes Muslim Alhamdulillah
The Prophet said the least So that was another thing you should have mentioned yesterday
that the Prophet said if there was a prophet after me it would have been Omar. But there's no profit. Well, I can learn to be a party. There's no profit after me. But if they were it would have been Omar.
The Prophet said that never does Omar go down one road but shaytan he goes by a different road other than the road of Oman
is a second Khalifa I'm gonna even ask extra up the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam Are you NASA Hubble Lake
Are you NASA Hubble Lake,
who among mankind Do you love the most? He said Isha
Coto he said MENA region among men, he said, Elisa that was an Imam, Abu
Koto, I said, then, some men who Kala Omar Ibn Al Khattab is rehearse. Who does Allah who does the Prophet love the most
Abu Bakr, then Kumar good.
Are you following me? You follow the line of okay. The Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said, I saw myself in Jenna. And I saw this palace.
And I said, Who does this belong to?
Killa Omar, it was said, Omar, he said, I started to go in to this palace to look around.
And I thought about the rise of Omar ryla in Arabic. People say jealousy but more dignity, you know, honor.
I thought of the writer of Oman. And I didn't go in and when he told that to Omar, Omar pride and say you have a civil law. How dare I put my writer before you.
So we agree who has a high stake true or not? Okay, good. Good. We're doing good. And you talk back to me today Alhamdulillah.
I want to relay this hadith to you because I want to talk about coming from the streets of jaleo because I want everyone here
in sha Allah to move to a highest state and those who already in the high state. I have a message for you and then we finish
when Omar became Khalifa
this Mustafa con la alberca Bukhari Hadith Muslim Hadith whenever a delegation from Yemen came
he asked the question,
I think always even
Africa always even our middle African always even amid he asks, Is there a man among your name always even our meal? Every time a delegation came? He was obsessed with it. preoccupied with it. This was Omar ibn Khattab, the halifa. Every time a delegation from Herman Cain, he's asking for man named ways even on mirror.
And one day,
and he said, he said, This is him. And ways even amid color, nom. He said yes.
No mom wasn't satisfied with that he said,
from Yemen from the tribe of Morocco.
Yes and from the brands of Curran, he said yes. Okay, good, good so far good.
Did you use to have leprosy
and Allah cured you except for the size of a Durham color now? He said yes. Okay. This seems to be the man I'm looking for but not not yet.
Do you? Do you have a mother?
He said, Yes.
You know, how long did that
10 years. He's searching for this name with Eben Amir, who is always even Amil. He's a champion.
He wasn't, he didn't mean he never met the Prophet so he's not a he's not a Sahaba but he's tapped in. And the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said in the hydrotalcite. Ian always even under the best of the Sabine is this man named always economic.
And after one more x all those questions, he comes to the issue.
He said the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said that there's gonna come a man named always even I'm melting from Yemen, to tribe of Madeira
and the brands of Cornyn
and he said all of these things, he said he has a mother that he is faithful to.
And listen to what the prophet said is the data
if you're able,
to ask a loss forgiveness for you.
For stock fairly, fair stock for roll.
So please ask Allah to forgive me.
And he asked Allah to forgive him stop.
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute. You mean to tell me
all of this that the Prophet said about him? And he's 10 years searching for one man?
Just to ask him to make supplication to Allah, that Allah will forgive his sins.
Who of you
who have this Eman, that level of Eman so much
that you will do with Omar did search for man just to ask him to make supplication for lunch forgiveness for you? What's the lesson?
The lesson is never, ever, ever take Allah for granted.
rest on your laurels.
Never think that you've done so much that you got it made.
How many of you heard of Malcolm X?
Almost all of
in a sense, a good role model for us not the same Roma model as the Prophet Lisa sagrado model is so different thing altogether.
But now come is an example
of how far you can go
and come to Allah.
I don't care how far you've gone.
You should read The Autobiography of Malcolm X.
People tell me that many people accepted Islam to The Autobiography of Malcolm X.
If you study Malcolm Malcolm was in jail
And in jail, he had a nickname.
Do you know what Malcolm X his nickname was in jail? Satan,
the devil shaytaan.
everything wrong in society. Malcolm didn't This is his own admission.
Malcolm was so far from Allah so far from Islam.
And so in prison, he learned about a group called the Nation of Islam.
The Nation of Islam headed by man named Elijah Muhammad, they had the name Islam, but they didn't have the act either of Islam. They didn't have the practice of Islam, for instance, and I was in the same group. So I speak as a minister. I was in the Nation of Islam.
Let me just take a minute to tell you something about
The Nation of Islam that mountain join number one.
The most important thing for us as Muslims is the belief in the oneness of Allah true.
In the Nation of Islam they taught that Amen. name for Mohammed was Allah I want to be
number one number two.
They taught that Elijah Mohammed was a messenger of Allah. LW.
There is no prophet after Muhammad Ali salat wa salam.
You see how we pray?
The Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said Sir Luca nara tamanu. Sally prayers, you see me pray. So when the Muslim pray, all the things we do is what the Prophet did Alayhi Salaam, Islam, we imitate his salad
in the Nation of Islam, they didn't make salad.
They face the East nut Qibla and they put their hands out like this. And they prayed. They didn't make ruko they make you do so dude. That was the prayer.
We fast in the month of Ramadan in the Nation of Islam. They didn't fast in a month month Ramadan. They fasted in December.
Malcolm became a minister in the Nation of Islam and the top minister.
And he taught what I just finished telling you
for 11 years 12 years
and then in March 1964
now connects Alhaji Malik Chavez, he leaves the Nation of Islam.
He goes to make Hajj
and define the real Islam.
Within one year
are given a lecture in New York City.
He was assassinated.
was Malcolm born in?
Where did he die in New York City.
Allah said metatheory nevsun v are then
no one knows what land they are to die.
So Malcolm Alhamdulillah. We pray became Shaheed in all the Muslims around the world know about Malcolm.
Look, when Malcolm became
there was a man who was on drugs, if any of you on drugs Listen carefully.
He was on drugs for 30 years. Every kind of drug that you can imagine.
This man my height, six feet tall,
got sick and wound up in the hospital.
He had gotten down to 60 pounds. Imagine a man six feet tall, 60 pounds. And the doctor told him
you should call your family members I don't think you live to tonight.
This man said to the doctor, please leave my room. I want to talk to someone who knows. He said that night He called on Allah.
That was 22 years ago. This brother is in my community.
Two years ago. He said Ma'am, I've been clean from drugs for 20 years. I want you to come with me. In my celebration. I went with him. They had a celebration for him for being cleaned in 20 years. This brother is so gifted.
Whenever we have someone have a drug problem, we bring him dumb to him. Because that's his expertise.
This brother so good.
He can look at you and say Ma'am, sir, do you see that brother over there?
I can look at him. He's on crack. You know what crack is? crack cocaine. I know you don't you know you don't have that LA.
that brother over there
is smoking reefer.
That brother over there. He drinks alcohol.
So when everybody sees him coming, they go like this.
But he's a Muslim today.
Alhamdulillah Allah brought them from Joy helliya
important to Islam. Finally.
I feel like we
that we don't worship Him.
Now hello to Genoa
he says only created the agenda human beings to worship me.
I have no idea the Allah you know
the punishment of Allah is real I shared inshallah tonight we'll talk about some of the punishment. I want to just take one aspect, just a few seconds.
You ever been online and like this a long line and take time and you were like, Oh, come on, come on court and traffic. Come on, come on, come on.
And then a couple years ago, we had a shortage with gas, gasoline shortage. We are long lines and you would be in line for an hour or two hours waiting to get gas. You've been like that a line long line.
I want you to think about this.
If you believe in resurrection is going to happen.
Shadi yesterday talked about the punishment of the grave.
I want to take a second
to remind you of this. Yo Mel Akiyama
I want you to see people being resurrected naked.
Standing, waiting to be judged by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Okay, come on, let's go. Let's get it on how long it's gonna be
how long the spending going to be?
I want you to think now, as you're standing there waiting for your Lord. You ain't sitting on your chair. You're standing in the heat and you're sweating. You standing in line, not a day, not a week, not a month, not even 100 years 150 1000 years,
waiting to be judged.
And some people standing there waiting to be judged. They know the end. Let it happen. They say let it happen now.
But the believers, the prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said that their time would be half of that but it will seem like part of the day. May Allah blesses to be part of that number.
Real Allah is real. The Hellfire is real. Jenna is real punishment in the grave is real.
It's no joke. We play this is real.
But we we too busy. Why did you make prayer? I'm too busy. What you busy doing? I'm watching TV up too tight to pray. Now. What are you doing? I'm on my internet. I'm on my smartphone. I'm on all of this. I can't pray now. What? I can't fast. Why can't you fast?
you've been humble. And they say they never read this hadith from Anas Ibn Malik. It's gonna be my last point.
He said the Prophet was sitting among his Sahaba
and he said to them
soon is going to come a man
from Allah Jana.
A man from Jenna.
So soon after that,
a man walks in
with water on his beer for Moodle with the sandals in his left hand.
The next day the Prophet Lisa that was alum said the same thing. Soon will come a man from a halogen the same man. From the answer he came same thing the sandals in his hand and water from hoodoo from his beard.
And the third day the same thing.
So when the Prophet got up and walked away, one of his companions I don't want to tell you his name right now. I'm gonna tell you in the end
One of his companions went and follow this man and said, I had some issues with my father and I swore that I'm not going to stay with him for three days. Can I stay with you?
The man said, Yes.
So this companion with that man to his house,
and they want to sleep.
And this companion is looking, waiting for the man to get up to pray tahajjud prayer.
He didn't get up.
He said, but I noticed every time he turned around turn positions, he would praise Allah. Allahu Akbar.
This happened for three days.
And the third day, this companion said to this man, the prophet said he was men among the people, Jenna.
He said, let me tell you something. I didn't have no issue with my father.
But the Prophet said this about you. And I wanted to see what you did, so that I can emulate it.
But I didn't see anything special. And the man said, You're right, this is it. So this companion walks out, he calls him back he said, Well, there's one more thing
and never have any thing in my heart against other people. And I'm not envious of the gift Allah give to other people. And this companion said, That must be it.
No companion was
it was Abdullah even, I'm gonna even alas.
formula dinner, you know, the best of my oma is my generation, and then the generation that follows it. And then the generation that follows it, look to the companions of the Prophet. I'm gonna even
even I'm gonna ignore Lance. Let me tell you something about him. The Prophet came to him one day and said, Is it true what I hear
that you fast every day?
And you stand in prayer the whole night, every night, and you read the entire course? And is it true? He said, Yes.
He said, Don't fast every day. Fast three days a month is sufficient is as if you fast it the whole month. He said, I can do better than that. So we kept negotiating with the Prophet until finally the Prophet said fast one day, break the fast the other day, he said, I can do better. He said, No, you can't do better. This is the fast of David.
He said pray at night and sleep.
In the Quran, he said, read the Quran once, once a month. He said I can do more than that. And finally they negotiated he said, Well don't read the Quran, except within seven days.
What's my point?
What's my point to all of this?
You great Muslims who sit here?
Don't you ever,
ever think that you got it made all these shoe you they go around the world and they give Dawa blah blah blah and the mamsa lead the masjid blah, blah, blah. And they do all of this and they give sadhak and they do all of that. Good. Alhamdulillah
never think you got it made why
I leave you with this. And that's my last statement. Someone put on my Facebook.
A 600 meter race.
fascinating. 600 meters at about 400 meters. She got tripped up shake. And she fell.
And I would estimate that at least.
They were headed for at least 50 meters.
And everybody can understand she fell and also over no chance she got up.
She started running.
And that woman was running.
She was running she was kicking and she passed one. And she kept on and she passed another and she kept on and she passed another in the last moment. She won the race.
Don't worry about what she used to do.
You still alive in
our team, your D shall be judged by your last deed make your last ditch right
and then the Prophet gives a warning. And this is the warning. The scariest Hadith on one hand and
hopeful heard If on the other hand he said
bainer who were being brought in for your speaker Allah Al Kitab for your family,
for your the kulu
a person can do the work of a halogen ha Listen, I go to the masjid i i i do this I fast on Mondays and Thursdays I I fast them the month of fast the faster. I do this, I wear niqab I do this I do this I stay away from
the door legs
until they this close to Jenna.
And then they begin to do the work of the people of nod for the Hulu
and then they go to the home fire
maybe become useless. mufflers is one who used to be rich become poor. Maybe they backbiting somebody maybe they slandered somebody. Maybe they shed the blood of someone maybe they stole the wealth of someone.
On the other hand in calmly
acuna bainer who have been on the road and a speaker laying a halogen for a year the Hulu
and then there are people like Malcolm X,
who do all his evil work.
But in the end,
they do the work of people of Jenna, they make Toba? Allah loves those who make Toba, he accepts them. And then he enters them into Jannah not how you begin the race. But how you in my loss upon water. I bless you and bless all of you to be among the people join me
