for the Allahu Allah NaVi masakazu de Yun Karim

00:01:38--> 00:01:46

de camino, de novo surgery in our umbrella has not been hard, I mean, respected scholars, brothers and elders, mothers and sisters,

00:01:47--> 00:01:52

we see the condition of the changing world around us constantly changing

00:01:54--> 00:02:38

on different funds on different levels. If somebody might possibly ask us describe the nature of this world in two words, it's the most difficult thing to do. There's joy, this sadness, there's excitement, there's depression, there's marriages, this funeral, this sickness, this recovery thing is so many clouds and things happening in the world. I recall myself once attending a wedding, and the very same day of the marriage diagonally across the wedding house, there was a funeral. So yes to the car of the bride, and there was the hearse. You know, the dolly of life, the pinnacle of dying and the pinnacle of reality. So that is the condition of the world in which we live and it's

00:02:38--> 00:02:57

getting more muddled and more confused, you know, you can make heads or tails. What is this was, there was a person in the time of the prophets of Allah listen by the name of even as a yard. If you read the books of Hadith, you will be familiar with a Vanessa. Vanessa yard was a very, very contradicting character.

00:03:00--> 00:03:10

There were certain things in him rich reflected the image of the job. Yet there were other things explicit in him, which proved the direct opposite.

00:03:12--> 00:03:24

So at times, one would be convinced beyond doubt that he has the job. But then he would refute it and say people don't you know, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that jar won't come in McLean, I live in Makkah.

00:03:26--> 00:03:37

This comes in a box of Hadith. Then at the same time, he will talk the speech of the journal the prophecies that the prophets or lawyers have made. One day the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said before he told the Prophet of Allah, I know what's in your heart.

00:03:39--> 00:03:51

If you read the books of Hadith, he was referred to as a Vanessa yard. Absolutely contradicting when you look at the world today, you really don't know. Sometimes they say it's the Vanessa yard.

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

It's the evanesce yard.

00:03:55--> 00:03:58

You know, in two words, to sum up what is happening.

00:03:59--> 00:04:46

You go and see some place of sin and vice and merrymaking and pop in as if this is the ultimate. And then you go and see another site where there's some catastrophe and some calamity and this crying and mourning and pain and regret and remorse. And then you say no, this is not the true world. So this is the condition of the world. The verse that I recited before you which was a verse that was recited in the taraweeh, Salah is perhaps without fear of contradiction, is the most comprehensive synopsis, the most comprehensive synopsis that anyone could presented before you on the nature of this world, the temperament of this world, simply because it's the description of Allah.

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

So Allah in in one verse in one verse, things the reality of this life in one verse of the Quran, very, very emphatically alone.

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

Currently, a lot paints the picture What does Allah say

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

dunya

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

dunya Allah, Allah was enough to

00:05:15--> 00:05:43

handle Allah let it be known to you the world in its entirety entails nothing more than these are the words of the Quran overseas is a translated version. So you're not getting the exact what Allah had sent, but to the best of my ability, a lot more Let it be known to you and number higher to the world in its entirety entail is nothing more than the first stage when Larry Bowden playing

00:05:45--> 00:06:33

amusement entertainment you know plain now the font is painting the picture from childhood. So, the first stage of the reality of this life is when a child plays. So, you buy toys for a child, you buy, you know, things that child would fancy to my bimolecular that he would shake and it will make some peculiar sound, which will impress him which he will send the demo animal higher, Daniela, him, the first phase of the human life, be anytime from any culture, male or female, there is the first introduction to life explained. And that is about all life entail. And hence, if you take away a story from a child, it is like, you know, the ultimate of everything that is the child's life, his

00:06:33--> 00:07:01

day, his night revolves around the toy. That's the first condition of life. And hence, the author speaks about the FCRA his Salatu was Salam. That was a now we'll hook him up sabia YALI his Salam was favorite with the understanding of being in his childhood. That one day the children told him according to one tree, why he was four years old, the children told him come here, let us go and play. And yadi Salam answered by saying Allah has not created up for play.

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

A child at the age of four today's 40 year old doesn't know that also.

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

Today for the old things, unlike rating for golf,

00:07:13--> 00:07:21

some things are lucky whatever reason, each one has a different understanding at the age of 40 says Allah has not created me for playing

00:07:23--> 00:08:11

the Prophet sallallahu Some said coolness I am in love with dunya, Basilan Illa Allah every form of entertainment and amusement is null is void with the exception of three into bajo kaliko sake, what the idea bucola sake, one will I bet to callea hilic for in nominal happy intervals theological policy, when you are playing with your bow and arrow. And by virtue of that you develop in accuracy, you develop in precision. So that might be a few times action apparently per se. But if given you accuracy, you are developing precision with the ideabook aliphatic you are training your horse, you are mounting on your horse, you are galloping your horse you know these things would forces recently

00:08:11--> 00:08:46

I went to one farm in this brother had horses Subhana Allah if you really get exposure to horses, what a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Allah hi Roma pueden been our see Hello Hi, Allah has attached goodness to the forehead of a horse. It's a beautiful animal to ride it you know it's a unique animal and the loyalty of this animal and you know the different types of horses you get the stallion and you get the tentacles and whatever else have you and the trucking and the galloping and there's so many related terminologies to a horse.

00:08:47--> 00:09:24

One will not have a token the angelic for in nominal hottie And the third thing, which is apparently also amusement, but Allah has made it lawful and permissible is when you meet with your partner in seclusion and you satisfy yourself and whatever measures you Institute in bringing joy to each partner respectively in a polite term, that is what I would use the word that also is approved by Allah and it is a human need and hence it is correct. Apart from that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says other forms of entertainment are all null and void. And the most common thing with entertainment as the Quran says,

00:09:25--> 00:09:46

well, you're so dumb and decorilla you are nice fella for hell and taboo, that you will find these things will take you away from Allah, they will prevent you from Allah, you find people who have a passion in following a particular sport. And that's a separate issue to discuss. We can debate the benefits of playing a sport, but what is the benefits in looking at the sport?

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

We can debate it might be physical fitness if you and I play or whatever we do, but in looking and supporting people who don't know about existence

00:10:01--> 00:10:26

People who don't know of our existence me know, they don't know we exist on planet Earth. And you know, we're passionate about him and how was My man and How was yours in our team versus you and replay new people tomorrow. And so panela ways the talent of this Ahmed bin channel, where the abilities and the resources of this youth been abused, in what futile things

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

in trivial things his brain and destroying them totally.

00:10:37--> 00:10:50

for profit Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a person absolutely conscious of physical fitness. Now the world comes up with obesity. And they bring this thing on the market and that on the market.

00:10:51--> 00:11:00

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam was very, very conscious about his eating habits. He was very, very conscious of physical fitness, about good eating habits.

00:11:02--> 00:11:43

We learn in the hobbies that he also ran a race with Isola de la Juana. And on one instance, I saw the Allahu anhu won the race. And on one instance, the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam, won the race. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, to tinker, with that for text, once you want, once I want. So again, like I always say, Islam doesn't have a problem with physical fitness, neg, Islam exhausts us. But obviously, it's got to be done in an environment that is conducive, it's got to be done in an environment that is conducive for my sister to have some degree that she could help sisters, she could become a gynecologist, and be of great benefit to Muslim woman be of great

00:11:43--> 00:12:24

benefit. That she they could deliver their children in a manner I know of a Muslim sister, back home in South Africa is a gynecologist. And, you know, my wife delivered the third child by her as well with the grace of Allah until now she folds and she asked her, you know, share, what should I read? If a woman comes in this condition? islamically What should I be doing? So behind Allah, what what better, what better, but again, is the environment conducive for my sister to go out and acquire. So the problem is not the art The problem is not the knowledge, the problem is not the skill, the problem is the risk factor, the risk factor in her going out the exposure, the vulnerability, how

00:12:24--> 00:12:35

susceptible she is how vulnerable she is, the chances are in the process, ABC could happen the degree will be then left aside. You know, in Gujarati, they say

00:12:36--> 00:12:48

someone said it very beautifully. If you understand Gujarati you you will appreciate this, that when you go to a university, so this is the degree laying out a decree in and out of

00:12:51--> 00:13:18

that you go there and come back with a degree and not a girl, not degree and decree basically means the girl into the party, you know. So you come back with a degree and not a decree. Meaning you come back with your degree what's your process and don't come back with someone in your arms. Now, this is this is obviously the challenge. This is obviously the challenge that faces you This is obviously the challenge that faces you. So the first stage of human life is not rebooting.

00:13:19--> 00:13:40

And then look at the Subhana Allah you know the comprehensive nature of the pond, an animal animal is Daniela reborn. Everything revolves around plane you look at the time, from the time he gets up to the time he sleeps, the little thing he both understand how Allah paints the picture and the reality of this world. And

00:13:41--> 00:14:21

all focus on abilities, all resources, all mental abilities are channeled in that year. So to improve to enhance to better to upgrade to innovate the toys, and laser thing that is about each race revolves around a novel a novel number two Daniela reborn Wella one. Then as the child matures, and he grows a bit more, he moves into the second phase, and he moves into the second phase A lot is now it's not toys and play now it's a bit more entertainment amusement. So you could take him first when he was a little tired to a regular path. And he would be satisfied now. No, no, that does not take me to the path. He is climbing the ladder now. So now he wants to go to a circus. He wants to

00:14:21--> 00:14:37

go to the show. He wants to go to perhaps a medical home. He wants to go through something else. It's more entertaining. And that's what's more appealing to him. And what happens if he matures? The first day he looks back at them the one before he says How could I be so foolish to waste my time in that?

00:14:38--> 00:14:46

That is again Oh, did I play with that? I don't want the show this year. I don't need these toys. So the very thing that he sends it now is

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

this is human as he goes on to the next stage. He looks back at the previous stage and he considers it insignificant. He loves it he trivializes it. Let us not forget when we turn this when we will

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

appear before a lot than men will look at the very world with the same eyes. Then we'll look at this very same world with the same eyes. What's this the world I ran the night? Look at it. Let's follow logic here. Let's follow logic. The thing that you bought for him first when he was just holding to grasp and you know nowadays, again, commercialized but impressive educational toys

00:15:23--> 00:16:05

educational so you know it satisfies you that my child is learning also Is there any numbers also is learning basic calculations also, at the same time he's been entertained. So the Quran says that he moves on man moves on the animal animal is Daniela Yvonne wala would love one. Now it's entertainment, it's amusement. It shows its theaters, its programs, its, you know, different different things. And then you have a puppet show, and you have this show and the different things that they have at school. I know, when you know, when we used to go to school, you basically started at grade one. Now I see there are three years before grade one. I don't know. Yeah, but I know back

00:16:05--> 00:16:12

home. So So behind Allah, and then before that is a babysitter, and I guess the next thing from the neighbor room to

00:16:13--> 00:16:23

some school. So it's minus two and minus one and grade not. And you know, before he gets to the basics, he's already into three years of the system.

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

And then again, if you compare the literacy rates previously, and now, I don't know if we really improve it.

00:16:31--> 00:16:54

I don't know if we really progress in you take the ordinary person's English. I mean, I read an article yesterday in the paper. Yeah, I was just reading about many words that have just come into the vocabulary come into the dictionary, which are not part of good English. This was in yesterday's paper. And the word in there was a nice write up on the word irregardless. Where's the word in regardless, regardless,

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

regardless, and you know, the very beautifully written that it finds his way into the dictionary.

00:17:03--> 00:17:11

He finds his way into dictionary. Now you assess an average man, I'm talking of a graduate, you know, who's gone through the formal system.

00:17:12--> 00:17:29

And just seeing his basic, we're talking of common basic, general knowledge. So we started from the age of three, and then we have an extra tutions on the way. And then we have in therapy, and we have this and that and this program and this mechanism and that methodology, only to know this is where we stand in the whole equation.

00:17:31--> 00:18:18

The Alamo animal to a bowl, the first phrase is played, well, our home entertainment entertainment. Then after you move on 989 he goes on the animal animal, Daniela, while I was in Italy, then the third stage is adornment, beautification. So now he spent spent so much more time before the matter, and he's called in, and he has a pocket comb in his pocket, and he's signing his shoes. And then he's matching, and he's very meticulous. And he's very passionate. And he's very branded in his clothing. And he bases his his, he evaluates himself according to this year, you know, and prior to that, he was very shabby untidy You know, it didn't bother to him, whatever his mother told him to

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

wear now it is so deep selection. So he works in the weekend just to buy another shirt

00:18:25--> 00:18:41

and then also a branded shirt. And voila in the work so much time just to put on the dishonor in that shoe. And time goes in this and that and and the one before that stage or the one after that they just cannot comprehend what's happening here. What's happening

00:18:42--> 00:18:42

was

00:18:44--> 00:19:22

one day I saw the allow on hopped on a very beautiful government, exclusive dress. And then she was looking at herself. And you know, it's common Allah has put this in woman they very you know, I don't wish to offend any sister we talking of temperament. Men have other weaknesses, women have different Allah has great we all have weaknesses, we all have weaknesses. Unfortunately, today we become such because of this gender bias. And, and and, you know, speaking about gender equality, if anybody speaks about any flaw of a woman immediately has been bias or prejudice or

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

anything. You know, it's not we need to have gender equality. We need to have the slogans we need to have that everything is evaluated through this year. And I read a very brilliant article on this year Subhan Allah, may Allah reward the sister, and and really we need we need the likes of this woman to multiply in numbers and scores. She wrote a brilliant piece of articles. You know, there's so many things that are on the market to counter this year. But the best piece of articles that I have read has been this young and she said that why is a woman independence and liberation measured?

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

In relation to that of a men, so the more men she is, the more human she is.

00:20:06--> 00:20:14

The more men men duties she can perform, the more human she is. And the less men duties she performs, the less human she is.

00:20:15--> 00:20:34

So if she comes out in the workforce if she drives, if she can become the president it then she is the human. Now she is on par. Why? Why are we measuring her to a man to make a human, she has her God given privileges, she has given privileges, measure her to that which Allah has given her.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

Why are you judging? How would you Why is the yardstick come in?

00:20:40--> 00:21:25

What makes it what makes a man the yardstick? So if a man did it, then if she does it, then she's a bit more liberated. She's so much more liberal. But then the irony of the whole liberation is the irony of independence is that when my sister bought sisters in a broad context, and a woman, for that matter, bought the flight, and she is the cabin crew, and she presents a plethora of food with a smile in a seductive way to a strange man. And she's progressive. She's moving with the times, broad smile, cabin crew flying from here to New York, flying from year to wherever. But that same system, if she presents a platter of food, with love and passion to her respected husband, then she

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

progresses

00:21:29--> 00:21:39

then she is moving backwards. So if she presents the platter of food to a strange man, she's moving with the times. But if you present the platter of food to her husband, then she's outdated.

00:21:42--> 00:21:45

We call upon the woman of today to cherish In other words,

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

we call upon the woman of today cherish your mother woods.

00:21:52--> 00:22:02

Apart from the fact that we debate, you're coming into the working force that are telling you sister once you've left the house, nothing can substitute your position.

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

Nobody can substitute your position in that working environment. I mean, you know, we are moving into a situation like I said that everything of a woman is becoming a man. Typically we might get a master mom one day

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

we might get a Mr. Mom.

00:22:24--> 00:23:07

You know that that is the way it's moving. Men and women into one so what else are you going to say Mr. Marvel? I don't know. You know, or maybe there might be a robot that will be then designed as the time but nothing but nothing can substitute nothing can but nothing can substitute and fill the position of a woman at home. A child is negligent. The house is attended. The food is not prepared. The house is a house and not a home till a woman walks in there is a house without the woman believe it's not a home it's a home. It also says that that is the owner lives she is a clean, say what you want to live in a palace. But if there isn't a woman in that house, it's deserted. And you live up

00:23:07--> 00:23:11

hot also but if you walk into a house where there is a woman what lights

00:23:12--> 00:23:14

on law, it is a palace.

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

The house is a house with a woman there that is that is the honor Allah has given up, there is nothing that can beautify our house like one woman can.

00:23:28--> 00:23:40

And then there is nothing in our house that can define that can like they say money can buy a house but not a home. money can buy a bed but not sleep. We have insomnia notice.

00:23:42--> 00:24:15

insomnia. So you see research on this and you see articles on this. And I just like to read it in the in flight magazines and the only time I read about this insomnia and whatever else is happening, and that's about now you see the fitness on board fitness and people are turning and turning the youth in this direction on doing this and someone pacing up and down and then just so that you can sue them if something happens to you again. This is the reality of the world in which we are moving you know, these are the times that we are moving with and we just accepting it and re become immune to it.

00:24:16--> 00:24:30

So the third phase is Xena. Alamo Hayato dunya la reborn Allah was Nina adornment. So I started the amount of puts on this beautiful garment and that is where we digressed from that point.

00:24:31--> 00:24:43

So I have a lot of puts on the beautiful garment and you know she is looking at herself she feels impressed it's it's it's woman's some woman they get they feel offended a woman don't tell them you're looking beautiful.

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

So this is so nasty of her she couldn't even say I'm looking Mashallah.

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

My sister, don't worry, your husband will tell you

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and he should tell you

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

He's the teachings of Islam, he should tell you, you should beautify yourself for him, and he should have done it now but for the amount of sit under the commentary of this ayah

00:25:14--> 00:25:31

Natasha, I swear by Allah I take pride in adorning myself for my wife just as I like her to adorn herself for me right now but for the Alanna said that was that is contrary to piety, the father of succeed. Nobody understood God better than afterlife now but

00:25:34--> 00:26:13

so it's both sided. We've got to respect her wishes, obviously within the parameters of Sharia that is important. Otherwise a man insists on his wife to take up that job and she insists on him to death and islamically then there is no compromise and there is no compromise. You telling her I want you to walk like this celebrity and I want you to talk like this woman. Then obviously that isn't Islamic, but commonly to accommodate to accommodate you know your husband has a choice for this your wife likes this year. She has a passion for this. She wants you in the house to use this to wear this to dress like this year. Three do is respect her choice that as you want her to do it. So that

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

is the beauty you know of Islam and that is the message.

00:26:18--> 00:26:43

Nonetheless, Abubakar Ilana looks at Isaiah and he says and Subhana Allah visa you know words of of thought food for thought. He looks at it says Martin budino Aisha but in a Lucha laser be now very nearly all my eyes ah. What are you admiring of yourself? Because I can tell you this much Allah is not admiring you.

00:26:50--> 00:27:20

So she says What is it? I think it was the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us then under correction Abu Bakar or the Prophet sallallahu wasallam so she says only Allah what is it that what Allah is not admiring me? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Don't you know when a person puts on any clothing and then becomes impressed becomes impressed and those are the key words which I spoke about previously, that you consider yourself superior because of what you own in wear and dress and drive. Then maka, boo, boo,

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

Xena, then Allah

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

funds such a person until he or she forsake that pride until that person does not give up their pride Allah leave that person I saw was the eisah who grew up in the neck of Abu Bakar and then nurse in the house of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam she took up that outfit immediately and significant charity

00:27:46--> 00:28:10

she took it out immediately and she gave it in charity now you know if you bought something with pride and with an obsession and with a desire and then after you spend so much money and then someone tells you that you know I've given the common example to a person buys a simple candy candies and candies and then he's about to eat it and you tell him brother these are haram ingredient in it so this is all okay nevermind finish by just the next time around by

00:28:14--> 00:28:19

next time around by next not adopt what's in your head what next time I won't buy

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

so you can drop a candy while my mother is a doctor uniform.

00:28:27--> 00:28:48

You can drop a simple thing like that that it's in his hands and say you know what this thoughtful today's Muslim cannot drop it is going to drop it immediately that is a man it blocks it me the data is unlawful it's in. It's not correct for me. The reason I finished it up next time I won't Panama you know wait a month. So then as soon you know adornment.

00:28:52--> 00:28:56

So you will find a youngster will spend hours at the salon.

00:28:58--> 00:29:12

He will spend literally hours he will spend double, if not much more money to go and take a haircut. You know I told you previously What are my sentiments on those haircuts and how they look at other people like they just passed the topic and carry on.

00:29:18--> 00:29:26

spend hours and invest money and let me tell you so many youngsters are lagging the diet because of that they don't make it up properly.

00:29:27--> 00:29:31

So many youngsters don't make much out of loser properly.

00:29:32--> 00:29:35

So you know if you may see me that

00:29:36--> 00:29:45

it is as you know very gentle, very very gentle just barely passing over as I'm doing with my hands. You know and that's also them

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

I'm so behind Allah I look at them. And my heart cries I love him. I witness my heart cries. How long is this brother going to waste his life like this year.

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

How long is this brother gonna waste his life like this year

00:30:05--> 00:30:09

as that hair cut of yours sustained your relation

00:30:10--> 00:30:15

you're doing it to impress the girls as it sustains the relation no it jeopardize the relation

00:30:17--> 00:30:26

people with better hair cut a lot longer now people clean shaven got longer marriages man they take all the hair off man I've got nothing to look at nothing to complain about.

00:30:31--> 00:30:43

And then did a screen test a woman what else are you doing it for? I asked you what else are you doing it for? As it sustained as a nation I asked you let me put my

00:30:47--> 00:30:50

ohana let me sustain the relation No.

00:30:52--> 00:31:04

So this is a Deena to an adornment beautification worshipping band following bands. And it is just killing the youth. It's just sucking the youth in the 1000

00:31:06--> 00:31:24

that is their abilities, that is the talent that is their mind is Saturday night. It's you know, beautifying them and then verifying the cause that's another stage. So, you have a lowered suspension. And you have rather than men and you have a bouncing system, and you know

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

this is this is the way that humans are spending their lives.

00:31:34--> 00:31:34

Allah

00:31:36--> 00:31:52

dunya la reborn first explain, why not one entertainment was the natural atonement, how many years pass in this adornment then what happened? So, then he passes that stage he spent eight years he spent 10 years as he gets into his team

00:31:53--> 00:32:06

and then that senses him and attracts him and that takes up so much of his mind, he goes around shopping and he wears this anyways that after that was in a turn around in a cold water car.

00:32:07--> 00:32:44

He was oh not what the populum dynaco now, he starts comparing with one another. So, he beautifies he adopts and then they have those locations where they come out and they meet and they congregate and converge and then the most affluent use the most well dressed use is the most impressive one. So, the car you drive the clothes you wear the phone you hold the woman you enjoy the wine you drink whatever it is, that is it imagine what even society you are more profound and more accepted in proportion to how much you excel in evil.

00:32:46--> 00:33:14

That is it. In fact, there are certain certain circles of friends and peers that you they have certain requirements to get into those friendships. So you need to do this you need to do this you are given things where you know it is dating. Can you do this? Have you ever done this? Can you prove your your soldiers or you know your your your affiliation and your allegiance to that group by perpetrating certain crimes? That is the reality of what we are seeing happening around us.

00:33:15--> 00:33:31

And unfortunately, I have noticed and I said it too many answers. Some of them carry these weights and they have this you know, so I've seen that there isn't a problem in doing that. But once you do this body building then you got to make it known. Now you have to wear a sleeveless vest.

00:33:32--> 00:33:43

You know I don't have a problem with your carrying weight. But do you have to wear sleeveless vest? Oh, you know you got to show and then

00:33:44--> 00:33:55

come for the time you can love the blanket you left in Mashallah uneaten and you left in how much weight and then for the time you can't look to do wait. I asked you are you strong my brother?

00:33:57--> 00:34:15

The prophet SAW something to people wrestling. He said what are they doing? So the Sahaba said no the determining who's strong. He said oh that's how you get strength. Well that's not how my Allah does his strength. So Sahaba said how does unless that strength, the prophet SAW some set a levy em liko nafsa, who is

00:34:17--> 00:34:24

the one who can take total control over himself in absolute anger is a strong man in the eyes of Allah.

00:34:25--> 00:34:36

He has strength. He has friends who can take control over his emotions. Who can only himself who can stop doing his emotions. He's a strong person.

00:34:37--> 00:34:43

in absolute anger, he takes control. What is this getting this and getting that and then wearing sleeveless?

00:34:44--> 00:34:48

What did art say? Or call Oh man. I said domina.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

Aluminum, I said domina is stronger than us. so unlucky one answer in your elegance of strength.

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

lm er o and Allah Allah de la Cava

00:35:05--> 00:35:10

Have you forgotten the Allah who has endowed you with that strength? He is stronger

00:35:12--> 00:35:31

Have you forgotten that Allah Who gave you this muscle he is stronger and then obviously you get this you know this food food that furthers you know one day I just went by mistake into the shop I wanted to buy a regular chocolate and then like the muscles on it and I see this piano did not always I'm in a wrong place

00:35:32--> 00:35:47

you know, and that's supposed to substitute a meal and you know it's it's a it's a you got to be into this own theory and in this position to know this whole how it operates, you know, suffice to know that there's something like that that exists.

00:35:50--> 00:36:23

So then what happens comparison so you're driving a Toyota and driving a pm you driving a BMW and Mercedes you're driving a Mercedes, I'm driving a Volvo you own that I own that difference. Is that the next day when you're looking back? Or could I be so foolish to spend my time doing that? Or was the last time I played with toys? Oh my did I ever have been entertained by these things? And as you moving on you trivializing the stage before you laughing at it, you mocking it? I can understand these children all day. They want to spend time with boys. I don't know what they get into. Okay, don't matter, Bob. You're saying he doesn't understand what you get with your haircut.

00:36:24--> 00:37:00

That's nice. But if we still don't learn then there's nobody more evil than us. There's nobody more unlucky than a year so mandhana nessa and you can eat ramen banana Romina Lima Battle Mode out of all the proper sauce and says let me tell you the intelligent one. This is the world's This is our lapins it is not even complete. The intelligent on alpha Yes man done and who can control his ego and evil within himself who can suppress it and subdue it? And whose efforts are primarily channeled through preparation of life after death?

00:37:02--> 00:37:48

the greater part of his efforts and endeavors our focus to preparation the day his eyes closed and not while he's awake in this world. That is an intelligent man. Well, I'll give my last but not Soho. Hahaha. What's Amana? Allahu lamoni, helpless, hopeless, feeble, useless, is that person who succumbs who succumbs to the dictates of his ego, who give into the pressure of his ego. And then live the life and his wishful thoughts about Allah. Allah is merciful. Allah is kind Allah is patient Allah will forgive me. So learn the life of sin and then both high high hopes on a lot he is a helpless person with a helpless person.

00:37:50--> 00:37:53

So then, the Quran says was a no

00:37:54--> 00:38:01

brainer co author Catherine feel when they get married, then they get married. Then what happens upon Save

00:38:03--> 00:38:43

as the parent paints the picture, those days, the pride was and now it's reversed. This is again the world we live in in those days the more children you had, the more lucky you are now the less children you have, the more lucky you are. So those days your pride was you know how many children you have. Nowadays is the you know husband, wife, son and boys. The Goose Island called ideal couple for and that's a shop closed everything is over plans life programs, life regulated life, get married at this age a child does not plan another this is how the world is as if we are in control as if we are in control. You have olema here Sha na na na na na na

00:38:46--> 00:39:06

na na na na na na na na na or anti EMA he just bought this to whomsoever He wishes. He gives funds to whom forever he wishes. He blesses with both gender if he so wishes, and he denies them both if he so wishes. In Nevada, Lehman Paddy, his knowledge is complete, his power is complete and accordingly he decides

00:39:07--> 00:39:45

he decides. So they are those that have sons and are waiting for daughters. And there's only son to come in. There are those that have daughters that are waiting for son, and only daughters are coming. They are those that have children and they feel that it's enough and more coming. And they are childless couples and they are desperate for children and they're going through this infertility clinic and this treatment and nothing is coming. He that solute controller he decides no drug on the market decides your fate. No dog on the market decides on the children you will then not decide to determine your agenda. That is the choice of Allah. We read today in the Quran as an hour after hour

00:39:45--> 00:39:46

after hour after

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

hour after he decides who's wealthy who's poor. Africa he makes some laws he makes some Dr. Amato Some are coming from or going unless it's my choice whether your heart for Africa

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

I feel not how you translate my actions, I decide what I want to you can see what you have to.

00:40:07--> 00:40:25

So you want to say it's not the SE not the, why did mother need to do this? How come the mother nature, I told you I read an article and the tsunami, I was flying back from Canada, I picked up the paper. And then there was an article and it made my hair stand on end. And this woman says, God, why did you do this to us when we did nothing to you?

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

And I dropped this and I said, Man, is just a pinnacle of your audacity

00:40:34--> 00:40:44

is just the height of your arrogance. You did nothing to Allah. What which time Do you speak I ask? What Which one do you speak? I ask.

00:40:48--> 00:40:54

Let me tell you what you did. What are your people on the market? sobre la taraka

00:40:55--> 00:41:08

means a left did you did such actions if I start punishing you proportionate to your actions. Nevermind a tsunami. Nevermind this tragedy or that tragedy. You won't find one living creature on planet earth

00:41:10--> 00:41:26

while you are still home, but it's my grace. It's my clemency. It's my mercy. It's my respect. And then you turn around and you say God, why have you got that article? or Why have you done this class when we've done nothing to you? What which time Do you speak

00:41:31--> 00:41:34

was in a turn once upon a coma Taka

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

Allah.

00:41:38--> 00:41:58

So then you start comparing, you know, where you married? What car you drive in? What's your income? Where we where have you been for vacation? Then after that, then you start comparing your children My son is studying here at Howard. My study his son is at this university they've got enrolled Some people think enrollment like graduation

00:41:59--> 00:42:03

is enrolled What a privilege is that is enrolled my father he can be a dropout

00:42:07--> 00:42:11

enrollment is or graduation they start rejoicing from enrollment.

00:42:13--> 00:42:50

What was the joy I mean to me so behind a lot and I haven't been in the in the universities I was the only thing I've done is lectured a few times. I've never been exposed to that and I'm grateful to be Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm too weak to resist the temptation I am too weak I speak for myself. Each man knows his own condition. I don't have a problem again with a quiet in the academic skills and whatever is been imparted. But I know for myself, I am too vulnerable when I've been to some of these universities to give lectures. And there's that little contamination that literal contamination and that environment and then be in a way and then tears and related issues. I

00:42:50--> 00:43:09

know for myself, I am too weak to stand my ground. I am too weak to stand my ground. But what I'm saying is then the price starts from there what's your children so my son is in this university and he's uh, he's there and then when he talks about the nobody talks about anything, nobody talks about it. But the price starts from there. You know the the honor the privilege of

00:43:10--> 00:43:36

what's going on and what's happening time is passing time is passing you plane plane plane, you come to fall ready. You play it you entertain it you want to nine already, you looking at your close interest and that you've gone to 16 already. You comparing you're going to 24 returning is moving on time is moving on. It's not waiting, you know the years are moving. It's just turning as I'm Tara, Layla, when are you currently Bonnie kondapalli

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

Nicola de de

00:43:40--> 00:43:51

Lima hos binary sallallahu Sallam said, Don't you see the rapid turn of the rapid change of night and day is making every new thing own is bringing every distancing close.

00:43:52--> 00:44:10

And it's bringing everything on its appointed time. It's 30. I was here in America my last program three years ago, three years have left. Let's look into our lives and how fast the three years have gone. Maybe the next three years will pass a lot Oh knows how quick time is turning? In? No one year? Oh no.

00:44:12--> 00:44:12

We're not long.

00:44:13--> 00:44:20

Allah says that Yama is also getting closer and closer. Then Allah says they consider it far I consider it near.

00:44:22--> 00:44:25

They consider it remote. I consider it close.

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

That is the reality.

00:44:29--> 00:44:59

So then Allah didn't give the light and in this is the reality this is the largest creates the station Allah gives a bit of a canvas Elisa Ethan, who faranda Allah says it's like a garden. It's like a farm, which is green, which is lush, which blossoms which is appealing to the eyes, like into the eyes. The farmer looks at it, but till he looks at it, it's impressive. You know, when he looks at his crops, he looks at his harvest, if he was impressed, but then again, reality is that that greenness has to turn into yellowness.

00:45:01--> 00:45:03

That wetness has to turn into dryness

00:45:04--> 00:45:10

that beauty of yours My brother has to turn so when the garden is green and beautiful and you know they

00:45:11--> 00:45:38

look up the children mustn't play on it a lot of times the service leave on a Sunday morning and disturb the needs of sleep also and then start mowing the lawn as you know pride and passion is trimming the edges very beautiful determine the edges like how he turns his hair very neatly. Not giving you a life in terms is a very passionately but then the time comes a time come nevermind combing his hair he starts becoming bald.

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

There's nothing to prove.

00:45:42--> 00:46:23

They even if you want to come there's nothing to go. Now again we have the laser treatment and we have this on the market look young, impress your wife This is your only chance here to go again. It's a call away your best person oh you name it in Savannah law whatever is on on the market, whatever is on the market, you know usually you take it so what happens is as time goes that greenness goes through yellowness and that very garden which was the pride of his life we sat down had a barbecue where he took the shade when he wasn't a crime. Now a dog comes in messes that place a dog comes and messes that very same place. So that very man has to fight in his head in his body.

00:46:23--> 00:46:28

little scar one year instead a little scar and dermatologists upon dermatologists

00:46:29--> 00:46:58

money upon money funding upon funding. You know one youngster had his little scar on his foot and says no I have to I told him my brother What do you do when you get married we're successful that's all you leave your socks on you don't have to show your wife your food that's on end of the day you spending all this year to show her you know you're beautiful your feet on I don't know what it is. Leave your socks on so few weeks man. And then after you in resumes you know now you know how it is. You forget about everything.

00:47:02--> 00:47:05

Dumisani right in our who foreign avato

00:47:06--> 00:47:51

mamasan from Morocco, and also Tama and then it becomes third and it's reduced to nothing. And that green garden It looks so you know despicable that you cannot imagine once upon a time this was a beautiful, impressive beautiful garden botanical gardens that they talk of weather will last you know what is stream and beautiful soothing sounds and birds chirping and shady trees. And you know that is that is a wonderful atmosphere. You cannot imagine that very young boy who was talented who was well dressed, who use the best of deodorant, who use the best of sprays. When he walked through an environment. He left everybody impressed. Every girl lifted her gaze. today that young man is

00:47:51--> 00:48:19

old, his age, his hands, he stopped in an old age. Oh, he's got he's got an eye problem. He's got a diabetic problem. He's got a urine problem. He's got an ear problem. He's got every possible sickness you can think of Never mind after that in this world. This has happened to that man. So Allah says this is the reality of this world. This is the summary of this world. This is the synopsis of this world. Oh man. What the last one he did

00:48:20--> 00:48:27

Amina line every woman to woman to dunya in

00:48:30--> 00:48:31

Africa and in Africa.

00:48:33--> 00:49:02

Woman filler to mean Allahu every blood, this severe torment or immense forgiveness, this severe torment or immense forgiveness and mercy from Allah. And indeed this one is but something of absolute deception. Indeed, this word is something is nothing but absolute. It's a deception. It's a delusion is now I did have the alarm used to say, a NASA neon Moon is our motto to discover who people are asleep when they dive and get up.

00:49:04--> 00:49:29

People are asleep now. When they die, they'll get up that is the reality. You know, in this world, it's like 50 people sleeping that everyone's got a dream. You know, and the dream isn't as much as nice as long as you've seen the dream. And when you get up there are some dreams when you get up you're happy to know it's a dream. And there are the dreams you set. You know, it's a dream that you know you were so happy and you're about to get on to the throne and that woman was about to come in your hands and every

00:49:31--> 00:49:32

year in reality,

00:49:33--> 00:49:36

you know, it's still my faithful 65 year old wife here

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

with my old guy in the garage,

00:49:42--> 00:49:48

renting a house above me and I was floating. I was floating out, floating, floating.

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

And then when you get up in does this this was summer living with these aspirations. Some are living with this ambition. How long will this remain the goal of your life? I asked you my

00:50:00--> 00:50:44

Brother, how long will you be a victim of the system? How long will you be enveloped by this delusion? How long will you be engulfed by this propaganda? I will tell you so mandana nessa, let us become the one who the Prophet of Allah mentions as intelligent, that has become the one who the puppet of Allah refers that intellectual. And that is the one that can subdue his ego, subdue his ego, take control over here, the horse is wonderful, as long as the reins in your hand, as long as you controlling the reins. So you let the horse age when you feel it's time to eat. But if that all controls you, then I'm afraid that AWS will will will move at the pace you cannot control, it will

00:50:44--> 00:51:28

eat as long as it wants to eat, it will move when it wants to move, then that horse is not a benefit does not indeed it has its share. It has its share, and we have to give it the proper size and said in the interview just as a colleague in Delhi xlg Kanika. Your body has a right over you give it time give it please, please allow me to give the body time to unwind give it time to relax. These are the teachings Islam is not a monotonous fate. Islam is not a rigid faith. Islam is not an extra you know that you abandon all forms? No, no, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he came to the young girls in a melodious voice was singing couplets in his welcome. And they were receiving him

00:51:28--> 00:52:10

with a spirit of joy. And then they went on and they said, what a non abelian yanapuma fiza d. And we're so lucky we have a prophet who also knows the future of office awesome said no, no, stop them. Let our joy be in a manner that we don't let spot the limits of Allah only he knows the future. I'm not that. That undue praise that doesn't this doesn't affect me. So our join is in its place, but it's restricted, we have our limitation. We also have happiness, we don't clap hands, we say Allahu Akbar. We also have moments of joy. We also have moments of excitement. But we don't have to match other cultures to be complete again. We don't have to match other countries to be complete, like a

00:52:10--> 00:52:28

woman don't measure her with a man for her to be a woman but to be a human. She's an independent woman. Consider her independence in a lot given privileges. Don't compare her with a man, my brother Allah has given you joy. The answer is the idea is larger. So movie Harvey hit in

00:52:30--> 00:52:34

the heart, that passing on the day of elite is forbidden. It's not.

00:52:36--> 00:53:15

Apart from the fact that it's not a reward. It's a sin. Why? Because Allah said, Today you eat today Allah is hosting you and you're the guest of a lot. So eat, but eat that which is lawful dress in your best clothes, but that's in a manner that you don't offend the law. We make lots of Almighty Allah, that the reality of what was said dawns upon us, we engage in this world in a manner that we come closer to Allah. Yeah, I have painted before you in the light of this verse, from birth to death, a complete history of life. Those of us that are elderly look back into our life and we can go down memory lane, and we pick up a lot of regrets on the way we'll pick up a lot of regrets and

00:53:15--> 00:53:34

remorse. Why did I do this? Why did I do that? But we know we've been through those stages. Let us not be foolish to follow the other stages let our eyes open now before it's too late. May Allah inspire myself one in order with the reality and save us with a life that is according to be in accordance with us obedient to us without
