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

So the

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

brothers and sisters, I'm thankful to allow me to have the privilege to address you

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

this afternoon for funerals

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

you know

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

that as a speaker

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

so, many of the references that we have to add these

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

references.

00:00:39--> 00:00:42

So, what I tend to do is just

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

emphasize some of the things

00:00:48--> 00:00:50

you cannot be illegal

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

and

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

in principle a school teacher

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

or

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

without trying to make an assessment, how are we do

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

as the mirror as the youth

00:01:25--> 00:01:28

because you will never change

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

we are

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

convinced

00:01:41--> 00:01:48

that we in a mirror the Muslims in America and the Muslims around the world

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

the way we

00:01:57--> 00:02:05

look at the model that was given to us 14 years ago

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

it

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

every time we go back and study

00:02:33--> 00:02:40

we asked ourselves the question, How were they able to do what they did

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

in this very famous Hadith

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

of the Prophet

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

narrated

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

by the graphic graphic.

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

I'm going to grab

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

Rafi by the shoulder.

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

In this world be in this dude.

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

Like a stranger

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

or a child.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

He was young he

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

is a young man here 13 years old.

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

13 years old.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

He will never forget this is

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

13 years old.

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

The most significant in the arrows

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

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

Good Sunday.

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

Reading to find out

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

when to give their lives

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

and the profit goal

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

They said

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

what

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

is the profit

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

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

00:06:13--> 00:06:15

motto is

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

no

00:06:24--> 00:06:25

dependent.

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

You haven't even paid one contract.

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

One contract

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

you and your brothers and sisters

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

have no idea

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

how you go to school

00:07:13--> 00:07:13

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

00:07:52--> 00:08:00

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

I believe

00:09:49--> 00:09:49

again

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

league

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

never the Messenger of Allah

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

30 companions of the message and

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

so

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

on

00:10:58--> 00:10:58

and

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

of themselves

00:11:07--> 00:11:13

Wait a minute, you tell me that some of the most common companions were afraid

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

oh

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

I've come to the conclusion

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

feel nervous,

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

anxious

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

Would you talk about

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

no fear

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

with a lot give us the good news

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

right now.

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

Whenever

00:12:29--> 00:12:30

we see

00:12:42--> 00:12:48

melodica was dangerous you know

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

he was home with his wife

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

and heard about

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

and left his home before he goes

00:13:03--> 00:13:03

and

00:13:06--> 00:13:13

then the Prophet peace and blessings upon said I saw the angels watching him and given him a football

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

harmonica, he was the key

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

I gotta, I gotta,

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

I gotta

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

I gotta

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

listen to what

00:13:32--> 00:13:36

he says that we are with the Messenger of Allah.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

He reminds us of the gentleman

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

in our pocket, we

00:14:01--> 00:14:06

we feel the same thing. So what did they do? They went to the messenger.

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

If you remember

00:14:20--> 00:14:30

the same way you do in my presence, the ages would shave your hair in your bed, or on rows.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

If you permit me Can I take about three minutes some big use case

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

Would you?

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

would you know?

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

So? Yes. So yes.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

And why would you do this because

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

you will start sweating.

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

Let me just reiterate.

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

I was at the University of Ohio,

00:15:47--> 00:15:50

and I had lunch with the Muslim students.

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

What motivates you the most

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

is the fear

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

in the system.

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

What really

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

got us?

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

Let's see what

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

they say.

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

The law is the beginning of wisdom.

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

Now, when we talk about fear,

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

consciousness

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

was

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

an optimist.

00:17:48--> 00:17:56

African American communities. At some point, our mothers and fathers didn't beat us. They just look at us.

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

You talk about

00:18:08--> 00:18:12

sweating, I would be sweating with my mother.

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

My mother was a big woman

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

to be an old man

00:18:39--> 00:18:40

a lot.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

But she he or not, and I was

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

in one way

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

or the other day.

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

How was your day was used?

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

You know?

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

She says.

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

But now

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

I want to take a moment. First to say

00:19:36--> 00:19:40

to better know that Allah is strong.

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

What are the

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

chances

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Those who reject Allah

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

won't be the size

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

of

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

the Prophet peace

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

he says

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

there will be the size of

00:20:21--> 00:20:24

and the distance between the shoulders of a camel

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

is three days

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

have you ever had

00:20:45--> 00:20:52

your nerves The reason that you feel pain is because you got nurse

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

or nurse you don't feel pain

00:20:57--> 00:20:58

I read

00:21:05--> 00:21:06

to have

00:21:07--> 00:21:11

an animal that Allah has taken upon himself to give a substance

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

win

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

the size of

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

his creatures

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

3

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

million a day

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

because

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

people will be so

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

thirsty

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

he

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

is so bitter

00:22:45--> 00:22:49

Yeah, despite eating all that food

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

poisonous food and

00:22:56--> 00:22:57
