00:01:56--> 00:02:00

Brothers and sisters in the next few moments I want to celebrate.

00:02:02--> 00:02:07

I want to celebrate because of what the Prophet said Ali salat wa salam. And he said,

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

In the Bashar,

00:02:11--> 00:02:22

to me, one of the most eloquent statements of our messenger Alayhi salat wa salam, a very simple statement in Bashar I am only a human being.

00:02:23--> 00:02:31

And why did he say it? He said it because Allah told him to say, Cool, in the Madonna bus, you're gonna miss it.

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

Allah told the prophet to say that I am only a human being just like you.

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

Our Prophet was born from a woman.

00:02:42--> 00:02:46

He lived, he ate, he answered the call of nature and he died.

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

And all of us are human beings.

00:02:50--> 00:02:58

And so today in sha Allah in a few moments, I want to celebrate our humanity, celebrate my humanity, and celebrate your humanity.

00:02:59--> 00:03:05

And I want to go over a a cosmic debate that took place.

00:03:06--> 00:03:14

We don't know exactly how long ago, maybe millions of years ago, maybe billions of years ago, but it was a debate,

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

a dialogue between Allah and His angels.

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

Now, I submit to you this afternoon in this messaging,

00:03:23--> 00:03:30

that that conversation that took place that debate that took place, millions of years ago, billions of years ago.

00:03:31--> 00:03:48

It still impacts us today, in this city and in America, and in the world with Allah He does. Every day it impacts us this great debate that took place billions millions of billions of years ago.

00:03:49--> 00:04:04

And this debate was so critical that Allah recorded it in the Quran so that we will forever read it. Until Yamaka. Yama, we will read in the Quran, this debate that took place between Allah subhanho wa Taala and his angels

00:04:05--> 00:04:12

or has called out of Bukal Mala Ekati in the J Elune. Phil Adi Khalifa

00:04:13--> 00:04:28

called Callooh attach a Luffy Herrmann you'll see do we have well yes because the man will not know Musab behold become DECA one Luca de sola Hala in de la movement Allah Tala Moon

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

great debate.

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

And in this debate and that cosmic debate that took place

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

are principles

00:04:40--> 00:04:50

that everyday we follow, we understand it unfolds. And when Allah said to the angels I am about to make on the earth Khalifa.

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

Obviously this name Khalifa means something about to create an Ursa Khalifa they the angel said are you going to make

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

In the earth, that which causes mischief in the earth and the shedding of blood and we we celebrate your praises, we the angels, we celebrate your praises and we sanctify Your Holiness.

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

And Allah subhana wa Bucha is like this.

00:05:17--> 00:05:22

Even the messengers are like this, that if you say something is wrong, you must be corrected.

00:05:25--> 00:05:42

And if the angel said you're gonna make a clean when Allah said you're gonna, he's gonna make a Khalifa on Earth and the angels were afraid because this that you're gonna create is going to cause mischief in the earth and gonna cause the shedding of blood blood. Who is Allah going to create Allah is going to create human beings.

00:05:44--> 00:05:54

And Allah did not deny what the angel said. He simply said, in the man at the moon, I know what you know not.

00:05:55--> 00:06:00

Not Allah like to take a few moments this afternoon. Just to examine that.

00:06:02--> 00:06:09

In the end, we're going to say this what the Prophet said Alayhis Salam Yohannes tubo Ilan

00:06:12--> 00:06:55

was stuck through all mankind. I want everyone here today in this Masjid. Not some not most not adults, not the men, not the women but everybody the men and the women, the young and the old, the black and the white, the atom and the non Arab. I want every one of us today to make terrible to Allah Subhan Allah, I want every one of us today to go back to Allah subhana wa. Everyone and I want everyone to ask Allah's forgiveness. And so the Prophet didn't only say that didn't only tell us to turn to Allah. He went a step further he says for any a doodle la Phil young, Milton Mara, for me,

00:06:56--> 00:07:08

me Rasul Allah, the Messenger of Allah, the One who Allah has blessed me, I turn to Allah every day, 100 times a day.

00:07:10--> 00:07:14

And if the messenger of ALLAH turns to Allah 100 times a day,

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

How often must we turn to Allah?

00:07:19--> 00:07:24

You want to know the difference between us and angels? You want to know the difference?

00:07:25--> 00:07:39

If you want to know the difference between us and the angels that Allah created these creatures of life, I want you just to examine a part of the verse of Quran sunnah to terrain the 66th chapter of the Quran and the sixth verse just a part of it

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

yeah so soon hola model home well yes I Luna you met um,

00:07:51--> 00:08:21

and they never disobey Allah in anything. And they do exactly as they are commanded to do. This was the argument this is a good argument. It's a very good argument. What about us? You want to make man Khalifa? You want to make man and rule on earth? What about us? We the angels, You created us of light and we don't disobey you in anything and we simply celebrate your praises.

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

Allah simply said

00:08:25--> 00:08:31

in the lamella, Tottenham, I know what you know not

00:08:32--> 00:08:45

if you ask the question what the angels right? You have to say yeah, yeah. You look at man and look at the midst of that man is causing the earth you have to say to angels. Yeah. Right.

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

Bloodshed.

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

How long was it before man started shedding blood?

00:08:53--> 00:08:57

How long were we on earth before man started shedding blood.

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

first son of that.

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

Not long. The first son of Adam murdered not only did he murder, he made it his own brother.

00:09:10--> 00:09:19

So when you look at the Earth, not just in America, in America every year 20,000 People will be murdered.

00:09:21--> 00:09:55

And not only will 20,000 people be murdered 30,000 People will take their own lives. Bloodshed. Bloodshed all over not just a non Muslim lens. Not just in the West. bloodshed in in Afghanistan bloodshed in Pakistan, bloodshed in Iraq, bloodshed everywhere you want to look on the on the globe there's bloodshed bloodshed in Sudan, bloodshed in Nigeria bloodshed everywhere you look on the earth bloodshed. That's what man does. But yet Allah in his infinite wisdom made man his Khalifa

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

is explanation

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

In the limo mela taught in the moon, I know what you know not

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

think about the angels.

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

You want to know the difference between men and angels.

00:10:11--> 00:10:16

And I'm looking at all of you. I know that there are people here that you love.

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

You love your wife, you've been married 40 years.

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

You love your children.

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

You love your husband.

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

You love our leaders.

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

We love

00:10:31--> 00:10:36

but man's love is imperfect. Allah is Allah dude. Allah loves to

00:10:38--> 00:10:52

angels do they love hmm angels do they love Yeah, angels love but the love of angels is different from the love of man. What do you mean by that? The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said that Allah said

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

and Hadith could see

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

is there a hyperbola ad?

00:10:59--> 00:11:09

Now that Jibreel yeah Jibreel in Allah you hit boon for LAN fashion boom for your hippo who gibril

00:11:12--> 00:11:22

And when Allah loves a servant he calls Jabril Jabril Allah loves such a such person you love him too then Jabril begin to love that person.

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

And then Jabril calls all the people in heaven

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

Allah Tala in Allah Tala you up for I hate

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

for you hippo

00:11:38--> 00:11:48

Oh angels, all those in heaven. Allah loves such and such person. You love them too. And then angels begin to love that person.

00:11:49--> 00:11:53

Imagine someone not loving the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them.

00:11:54--> 00:12:13

It's hard for us to imagine as Muslims the most lovable person for us Mohammed the laser let was unknown how could you not love him? Yet? There are some some who became Sahaba who said he used to be the most hated of us until Allah guided us to Islam, and then he became the most beloved of us.

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

All but the love of man is imperfect. What do you mean by that? Sometimes we love whom we should hate.

00:12:22--> 00:12:26

Yeah. And sometimes we hate whom we should love.

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

In order difference between angels and human beings.

00:12:32--> 00:12:47

Allah Sankara en la casa Khurana, Benny Adam. We have honored the Children of Adam, how did Allah honor you and us on less than a lot of ways. One of the things that Allah has given to us that great Gift of free choice.

00:12:48--> 00:12:54

Yeah, you can love whomever you want to love. Law not gonna stop you.

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

And you can hate whomever you want to hate law not gonna stop you.

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

But we as Muslims,

00:13:02--> 00:13:33

as Khalifa we try to love whom Allah love. So therefore the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said about I'll answer there you Hibou whom Illa movement? The answer none loves them but a believer in non hates them. assefa Hypocrite. And those who love the answer, Allah will love them. And those who hate the answer, Allah will hate them. We bear witness today in this Masjid that we all of us we love the Al answer.

00:13:34--> 00:13:53

We never met them. But it doesn't matter to us. We know that Allah love them. You know the difference between angels and human beings? Yes, angels, they submit to Allah Subhana Allah Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah angels do that all the time.

00:13:54--> 00:14:01

Oh, but man, human beings, we also do it in order difference.

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

The angels are only wired to obey Allah.

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

They can't help themselves.

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

But you knew

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

us. We can do whatever you want to do.

00:14:19--> 00:14:27

We can do whatever we want to do, and you can stop them. We can walk out of this Masjid today and you can go to a to

00:14:29--> 00:14:34

a brothel. You can go to a house of prostitution, you can go to a drug house.

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

Nobody can stop you.

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

You as a believer, you stop yourself.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

You stop yourself. Because you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and understand the great gift that Allah has given to us. I want you to think about this. As we sit down and when you leave this Masjid today I want you to think about this, about the great gift that Allah has given to us.

00:15:01--> 00:15:06

Speaking to the elders for a moment, the uncles, the grandfathers, the Father's children.

00:15:08--> 00:15:14

If you like me, one of your greatest desires is that your children remain Muslim.

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

Therefore, some of you spend money, a lot of money sending your children to Muslim schools. I

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

mean, have you tried to take your children to the masjid

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

and one of your greatest desires is that your children remain Muslim.

00:15:31--> 00:15:45

But you know what, you don't always happen that way. You can be the most pious parent, all your life given the best example to your children, and then one day, maybe your children decide, I don't want to be a Muslim anymore.

00:15:47--> 00:15:53

And your challenge, your challenge is not to make them be a believer.

00:15:54--> 00:15:58

But inspire them to remain a believer.

00:15:59--> 00:16:07

You see, brothers and sisters the mistake that we make and the mistake that most people make even in the West, for them, everything is false.

00:16:08--> 00:16:13

Or two verses sticks out in the Quran. And I close with these two verses.

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

Verse number one

00:16:17--> 00:16:25

ikura fiddling Don't you ever forget it? Let there be no compulsion in religion.

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

It is one thing to make your daughter's wear hijab

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

maybe you feel sort of weird and she'll weird

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

but it's not in her heart. One day when she gets far enough away from you should take it off. How do I know? That's what they do.

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

So our job is not to make them

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

not to make them believe

00:16:52--> 00:16:59

and aspire them to believe in my greatest love is to know that I have grown children

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

who are out of the house and they practice Islam in the Islam that they practice have nothing to do with me forcing them.

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

You have the verse

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

telling us to consider

00:17:19--> 00:17:26

Allah sin Quran wala Sharrah Bukola m&r Men fill out the Kulu whom Jamia?

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

Enter to Coronas hotter you call meaning?

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

And if it had been Allah's Will,

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

everyone on Earth would have believed?

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

If it was his will, everyone on earth what I believe, then would you Oh Muhammad, compel man against thy will until they become believers

00:17:53--> 00:18:08

McKennitt innocent and took me now Elizabeth Nila no one can believe except by the permission of Allah. Welcome to louder blood in me. Milkman Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Allah sabe oedema in Abba.

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

Brothers Sisters on unfinish

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

but I want to nail one thing home.

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

I want to kneel at home that you get it that you understand it.

00:18:27--> 00:18:29

There is not one of us

00:18:30--> 00:18:35

who sit in this Masjid who sit in that hall who sit outside

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

who sits up there.

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

There is not one of us that is without sin.

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

How do I know that?

00:18:46--> 00:18:50

I know because of what the Prophet said Salah Salem, he said

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

Waller, the Neff CBD.

00:18:55--> 00:19:03

I swear by Him and who whose hand my soul is in.

00:19:04--> 00:19:27

And whenever the Prophet said that he's about to drop on us something heavy, while loving enough cbdmd Lau LEM to nibble at the hub Allahu be Kumala Jabil Coleman, using the Buena for your stockfeed on Allah to Allah for your funeral. La home. They said

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

this is

00:19:30--> 00:19:48

Allah did not make a mistake with us. We are not the product of a mistake. Allah knew who we were and how far we will go How far would man go man can go as far down in the depths of darkness as he wants to go.

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

On the one hand, we can rise to the greatest heights.

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

If you had not committed any sin,

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Allah would remove you

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

All of you, you think you sinless. You think you're better than anyone else. You think you're pious and you think you're righteous. If you had not committed any sin, Allah would remove you and bring a people who would commit sin so that they can ask Allah's forgiveness so that Allah can forgive them.

00:20:26--> 00:20:40

You want to know the full glory of Allah? You can you can exhibit the full glory of Allah with angels alone. Why? Because angels don't make mistakes.

00:20:41--> 00:20:51

How could you have a Rahim forgiving, merciful and in and forgiving, unless you have people that make mistakes.

00:20:52--> 00:21:17

So the key is not that you're not going to make mistakes, you're gonna make mistakes, for sure. You human being you're gonna make mistakes, you will see it, you live long enough, you're gonna make mistakes. Your husband is going to make mistakes, your wife is gonna make mistakes, your children are gonna make mistakes, your leaders are gonna make mistakes. Your presidents are gonna make mistakes, your governors are gonna make mistakes, your your males are going to make mistakes. Everybody human beings will make mistakes.

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

That's not the issue. The issue is

00:21:22--> 00:21:28

when you fall do you get back up and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and make Talbots him. That's the issue.

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

You know what I used to be Christian.

00:21:33--> 00:21:36

And there's an interesting version in the Bible.

00:21:38--> 00:21:44

And I want to prefix with what I'm going to quote from the Bible with something the Prophet said peace and blessings be upon him. He said,

00:21:46--> 00:21:54

Let to start the cool anarchy tabula took the boom. Don't verify what the people of the book say don't verify and don't deny it.

00:21:56--> 00:22:04

But rather say, we believe in Allah, and what was revealed to us and what was revealed to you, Allah who knows what?

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

Your God and God as one?

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

I'm not saying Jesus said it. I'm saying the Bible said that he said it in this world. Christians preach. And it's interesting.

00:22:17--> 00:22:20

Some scribes and some Pharisees that came to Jesus with a woman

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

and said that this woman

00:22:24--> 00:22:27

was caught in the very act of adultery.

00:22:29--> 00:22:46

According to the law of Moses, she should be stone, what do you say, Jesus? And they were trying to trap him. And they said that Jesus got on his knees and began to write something in the dirt and they didn't know what it was. And they repeated the question again, and he stood up and he said this.

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

Let him who is without sin, let him first told the stone.

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

He didn't say yes, he didn't say no.

00:22:56--> 00:23:08

You know what? One by one they began to drop the stone and then walked away and dropped the stone and then walked away, dropped the stone and walked away and dropped the stone and they walked away and so nobody was left.

00:23:10--> 00:23:20

Did it happen? Allahu Allah. But let me tell you what did happen because the Prophet said peace and blessings be upon. He said that Jesus Alayhi salat wa salam, he saw a man stealing.

00:23:22--> 00:23:26

And he said, Did you steal and the man said will lie. I didn't steal.

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

Here's the Messenger of Allah isa Lee said that was the Lamb Jesus.

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

So man, he witnessed a man stealing he said, Did you steal? No, I swear by Allah. I didn't steal.

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

You know, Jesus said.

00:23:41--> 00:23:45

He said I meant to be there. What are they up to a Nia.

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

I believe in Allah and I deny my own eyes.

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

And the Prophet told us that

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

what was Jesus saying Jesus ain't perfect. I may be making a mistake.

00:23:59--> 00:24:09

How often eyes deceive us how often I as deceive us, how often our hearts deceive us. Yes, today we celebrate. What do we celebrate?

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

In the ANA Bashaud

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

I am a human being

00:24:16--> 00:24:29

and I will make mistakes. But I will turn to my Lord and ask forgiveness. You want to hear something? If you had time, I will take you all through Sherea

00:24:30--> 00:24:33

and show you most of what we do.

00:24:34--> 00:24:38

We only do it to get allowance forgiveness. If you had time I wouldn't do it.

00:24:40--> 00:24:50

I'll go off and off the Quran and Sunnah and I will show you everything we do most every bad that we do is to seek Allah's forgiveness.

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

I'll give you one thing to think about

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Alicia radula and has she said that Rasulullah alayhi salat wa salam

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

was praying one night, early in the morning and he prayed so much that his feet begin to ache.

00:25:09--> 00:25:18

And when he finished, she said yeah Rasulullah li Mantis No, Heather. Because the gospel Allah Allah can make the commandments and be a man or woman will matter.

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

Why, why? Why are you doing this?

00:25:25--> 00:25:39

Why are you making all of this extra prep? This is not Margaret, this is not this is not 5g. You don't have to do this. Why are you doing that Allah has already forgiven you of your past sins or your future sins. Why? Why would you do that?

00:25:41--> 00:25:57

He says FLL Hibou and Hakuna adventure Quran should I not be a thankful servant? Now, let's look at it. Here's the Messenger of Allah. He's done all of this extra worship, right? And I should say, Well, wait a minute, she's puzzled about why you're doing all of that.

00:25:58--> 00:26:16

And you go from from from Sharon, fasting in Ramadan, to stand up and lead it to Clara standing up and tahajjud a strata Tara, we are making a pilgrimage to Mecca, all of that and you study it and you will find out that you do it seeking Allah's forgiveness.

00:26:17--> 00:26:24

You know why? Because we, as human beings are sinners. We're not angels.

00:26:25--> 00:26:33

So therefore when you look at yourself, oh wait a minute, I'm a human being let me be careful. I'm a human being let me be careful.

00:26:35--> 00:26:46

And then it means that we should be forgiven to each other finally, I close. We searched not long ago for later to cover remember.

00:26:47--> 00:26:52

Remember when he came to the masjid so often during Ramadan remember wasn't that long ago?

00:26:53--> 00:27:02

I remember a shout out the Lord and said to her husband, the messenger of ALLAH, Rasool Allah, if we find later to cover. What should we say?

00:27:04--> 00:27:09

Allah Houma in the cafe 12345 food and oh Allah.

00:27:12--> 00:27:18

Oh Allah, you are the Forgiver you love forgiveness. Therefore forgive me.

00:27:19--> 00:27:20

We make dua

00:27:22--> 00:28:09

for ourselves, our family members, we make dua for each other. We ask Allah the Almighty to forgive us our sins and have mercy upon us. We ask Allah the Almighty to turn to us. We ask Allah to help us to make tarball to him Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad wala as Ali Mohammed wala assuaging Mohammed, Mohammed Salam Sleeman, Kathira Robina Taco Bell Mina in the fantasy Minalima Robin Allah to fitna in the Sinatra Anna Robin Avila Tamil Elena Islam combat amatola danamon Commelina Robin Allah to hum Munna mela taka tallinna What full and what fildena What Hana and to Maulana offend, so now Hello, come on caffeine.
