History is not only a narrative of the past, but it is equally a moral compass for the future.

00:07:37--> 00:08:35

So it's not only reflecting on what has occurred, we need to take a cue from the going forward in Niger annamma Rudy's in attalla Halina Balu, a young son Rama in chapter 18 Allah subhanho wa Taala says that whatever beauty and splendor you see on this earth, it is a test the embellishments of these world of this world is a test.

in which he said, One Marcia hit to janas attorn for her death to Neff, c suwama, who ruled on behalf of Mr. La. I never attended a single funeral in my life, but that I auto suggested to myself and I reflected for the entire duration that observe what is happening because the same will happen

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

to you at a different instance

00:10:04--> 00:10:07

that been said my brother, my sister, my listener, my viewer,

00:10:08--> 00:10:34

the life of a believer on this earth is between two types of fast. One is the common known fast in the month of Ramadan and with the grace of Allah, we observe that from a young age and May Allah accepted till Of course, our last breath, but there is yet a another advance. And that is the first in the life of a believer from the age of puberty, though death.

00:10:35--> 00:11:20

And the start of the second verse, worry don't worry, do worry. And the thought of the second fast is the day we meet our Creator. We're more of a more nahariya Swami called the hub. We're more of a mana harness. We are the hub and the greatest chunk of this fast as past. How long are we going to love what we do later today, Tara? What would you say to a person who breaks his fast after us or close to Margaret? Foolish, naive, silly? Well, in a like manner, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling you this world is short. Don't break your fast. Obey your Creator, obey your Creator.

00:11:22--> 00:11:43

In English, they say check yourself before you wreck yourself. Check yourself before you lack yourself. An undisciplined man is a headache to himself and a heartache to others. Nothing is more common than

00:11:44--> 00:11:50

talented individuals who are unsuccessful due to lack of discipline.

00:11:51--> 00:12:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us a tale in the Quran in the second Tuesday in the second chapter, when the king Paul loot had mobilized these forces against john loot. According to tafsir worth money 80,000 people had initially accompanied him 80,000 so when the call was made to challenge the tyrant, the king, the autocrat, the dictator jalad people came out in the numbers. And often people respond, you know what? impulsively, not with a calculated and a you know, focus and an understanding and commitment, just moving with the flow.

00:12:31--> 00:13:19

And then as they were traveling towards the expedition to challenge and combat this tyrant, this dictator, this individual by the name of john lewis, they crossed by a river. So Paul alludes said to his people, and the scholars of the sea of experts on the exigencies of the Quran tell us that in all likelihood, this was communicated via the Navy of the time for Lama for Salah Paulo to build your node, Bala in a Langham obatala colombina. Her balloon said to his people, surely Allah will test you by a river, Allah is going to examine you. What's the nature of the test, they were traveling, they were thirsty, water was made available to them. But the test was to limit yourself

00:13:19--> 00:13:23

to discipline yourself and not to Drink from this water.

00:13:25--> 00:13:42

In law, mobile telecom banagher Some people argue geographically, this is a river that the borders between Jordan and Iraq on a particular trip of minds in the Middle East. One of the locals indicated to us that many argue this is the Allah who

00:13:44--> 00:14:27

Allah knows the reality if this is accurate or not, suffice to say that for us the point of reflection is the message and the essence that has been conveyed in this verse in Allaha, mobile telecom benar Verily, Allah will test you with this rava feminine rebirth of Allah is a meanie will drink from it is not from me, woman love me and will bring from it for inner harmony then he is part of me. Now when they came there and they are thirsty, what we spoke about discipline, the life of a believer is from the age of puberty, till till his death is a life of lack of discipline.

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

For mansuri ever will drink from it is not from me, woman lamea tahu and whoever will not taste it, meaning he will resist the temptation he will discipline himself he will restrain himself then he is part of me in law many photographer horrified Gambia day, but of course he's allowed to take a portion of water in his palm and drink. Now listen to this, my brother my sister very carefully and clearly. Unfortunately

00:15:00--> 00:15:52

A majority of them for Sherry boo Minho for Sherry boo Minh, who they drank from this river in volumes, they drank from it in volumes and army of 80,000. The consequences of the violation of this injunction were twofold. Number one, those who drank from it in large quantity, it did not quench their thirst, it aggravated the thirst of money. And the second thing that happened, as soon as they drank from it, they became lame, lethargic, and they lost their strength a cloud and they might, in bayana, Quran it is written the wisdom of subject them to this test was to separate those that have

00:15:55--> 00:16:37

a lot is the cloud, those that have grown, that can discipline themselves. As soon as they drank, it aggravated their thirst. And those who drank in moderation it quench their thirst. Wow. What a great lesson of life. What a great lesson of life in the 21st Jews of the Quran, in Surah, two room Allah subhanho wa Taala says, woman I d My name muqaam bill lately when the WebRTC will come in for delay and amongst the signs of Allah, Allah Allah qudra T which reflect the greatness the grandia the magnanimity of Allah is menambahkan Bill layli winnaar

that you sleep by day and by night, when no more binna har minmatar or de hula, arabo nachmittag min Allah. And sleeping by day was a bounty that the Arab used to treasure and even today's science will tell you about a midday nap. In fact, I'll share a particular caption of an article of an Oxford Professor which I just have a flash of now with you in this regard as well. So the point here in piano, Quran, it is the return we talking about discipline. Islam is that beautiful religion that doesn't deny you moderate indulgence in your necessities, but you need limitations. One of the most difficult things of life is to strike the fine balance more so when you have to choose that balance

00:17:28--> 00:17:51

between responsibility and freedom. There's responsibility and there's freedom striking that balance creating that discipline in your life. So the older man say under this idea that law and unknown limits that aha, work at that level Mirage meenal us BB LA Unified command for enamul hoomin minion E to Allah k for you now Phil Kemal

00:17:56--> 00:18:15

de la jolla and unknown Lily esta raha Allah is saying that I have created for you sleep, which then means sleep is a bounty from a life somebody's sleeping, don't waste in your life, don't sleep, no lights. When you sleep, and holistically and understand the balance

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

and not

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

that's

00:18:22--> 00:18:38

pretty to your body. The body releases melatonin, which creates that tranquil effect in the body, which rejuvenates you and gives you that strength and that muscle to embark on the activities of the next day. What can that

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

thing that can nobility because saying I have made the day for you to go and earn we're in nama Yoon Ha in Hema coffee, Hema, yes. Yes, what is problematic is where you trespass and transcend the limits and boundaries. And you over indulge.

00:19:11--> 00:19:19

Say it was so hard. Ibrahim bin Adam say he does Zohan Ibrahim bin Adam Rahim Allah.

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

He was a great scholar. He was a great sage of the age.

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

And it is mentioned about him that he had spent some time in the company of pious Masha is in a zawiya in Lebanon. And then after spending some time in the company of these pious people, he was returning back to his community. So they gave him the farewell advice either Raja Isla Urbana it dunya Falcon lagoon when you meet with your people say to them the following man New York theory roll, man yo quiero Aquila, man Yo, quiero Aquila, la Yeah. jado lil ra

The one who over eats you open indulges then he over drinks and the one who over drinks then he tends lazy, lethargic, inactive and he sleeps a lot. And when you sleep a lot, then you lose a lot of your time in order they say worked key work to me

value the moment at the moment because even time doesn't have time to give you time again.

00:21:07--> 00:21:19

You know what Listen, either we meet in now or then we won't meet I won't able to meet you later. Leave alone your brother cannot meet you later or the doctor cannot give you an appointment lead time cannot give you time again.

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

Is our Ghana hi rose Sophie you Vika wa Bharata schita in ulica. For us

00:21:32--> 00:21:46

is again Hello Sophie, you Vika. In summer it's too hot. And in winter, it's too cold. Then when will you change my brother? Then when will you transform your life?

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

So what did he say? Either a janitor in Indonesia say to them, when you look

00:21:56--> 00:22:44

over it, such a person La Jolla at Halawa. There will be no sweetness there will be no ecstasy in his worship. Number two, woman you're clear on the one who oversleep Lady Maria Baraka, there will be no blessings in his life. And I was telling you, I came across this amazing article of a professor from Oxford, who spoke about nap Enos, he coined the word happiness from happiness, that if you nap at midday, for half an hour, it has proven to be very effective, productive, it gives you strength, resilience, it enhances your ability, your IQ etc. for the remaining part of the day is such a person would be very active and productive. But if you sleep for more than 30 minutes, it

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

becomes counterproductive.

00:22:47--> 00:23:04

It becomes counterproductive for the main part of the day. You will be more lame and lethargic to your counterparts who did not sleep. So what's what's what's the whole message? It's all about discipline. It's all about discipline. That is the teachings of Islam.

00:23:05--> 00:23:26

And the beauty is those who drink in moderation, the thirst benched the thirst was great for Kumar for Salah Paulo to Bill geonode Bala in Allah morbidelli colombina her Thurman Sheri Berman, who fell is a mini woman Lamia. mufa, in Germany In Germany.

00:23:28--> 00:23:43

So those stay courage they lost a cloud, you overeat at the time of if bar, it becomes a hazard for your health. It becomes a blockage for your tarawih prayer and it becomes an impediment for the next day's fast.

00:23:45--> 00:23:57

Every time people go for Rama and hijack, they asked me for advice. I tell them eat minimal and powerwolf performed on a hungry tummy. The tawaf will be more spiritual, and you will cry easily.

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

When the belly is full, you won't able to cry. Marcia,

00:24:03--> 00:24:21

don't talk to Illa saw Oh hammarby Masseria. The noon mystery Rahim Allah said anybody who ate to his capacity, either indulged in vice, or planned a vice

00:24:22--> 00:24:29

ameerul sushi and unfairly Dini word dunya meenal. Jew.

00:24:31--> 00:24:52

Allah ma right that people have intelligence across the boards have agreed. One of the best things for the human body is to stay hungry in terms of creating discipline discipline, Satan I use of alayhi salatu salam was as limiter ju Ruby Adiga has no ARB

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

during the seven years of famine. Why do you have for hunger when the treasures of Egypt are at your

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

disposal. He said a harmful an ash bar for an selja

00:25:06--> 00:25:27

I'm afraid that if I over eat and I eat till my belly is full, then I will forget the plight of the poor. Someone said in the older language, water Acharya came mod Sabu RT here, we're now mal Dar toccata cavalry bata Islam mirga.

00:25:28--> 00:25:43

Water, a chai k mod super cool idea. It's just a well that everybody dies. Otherwise the elite were capable of saying because he was poor he died you see when you like us You won't die.

00:25:44--> 00:25:51

So again, the message is a message of discipline. And also coupled with that my brother, my sister

00:25:53--> 00:26:42

in the disobedience of Allah is not only the destruction of the latter world is the destruction of this world to think, apart from becoming inactive, and losing the courage to go and challenge our loot who was the tyrant ruler that is aggravated. So now you are in a space of xiety you are in an unbeliever just not feeling satisfied with yourself. And that reminds me of another verse of the Quran in the seven Jews. In surah. Toma Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about all the other crimes that happen in terms of alcoholism, in terms of gambling, in terms of all these type of social evils. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in ama you're either shy or you

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

know you're either shy

00:26:49--> 00:27:17

da Phil Humphrey well may say warriors with the camera and the gorilla humor in his Salah. That when you gamble, when you drink alcohol, then the aim of the devil is to create discord amongst you, you look at the stats of the revenue that the industry supposedly generates, and the feuds and the arguments and the accidents that come about as a result of alcoholism.

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

So what happens, you drank after that there was an altercation there was a skirmish there was a few good they would language they was

00:27:29--> 00:27:58

touting another assault in one another. So what do we learn? fi unelma I'll see that the one Manu Alma var ru dunya we used to get the bahmani her alma bar lil over a year. We learn from this that the disobedience of Allah is the recipe to disaster in this world and in our era. That is why a pious person said let me learn FC la

00:27:59--> 00:28:13

FC Allah shuddha ad hoc have a min and duck Milani ish I will prefer exerting my body towards difficulty that my ego dragging me towards an

00:28:16--> 00:28:19

ex. I bought it towards me.

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

And somebody said it very beautifully.

00:28:33--> 00:28:36

it's not possible to take a rebel

00:28:38--> 00:29:09

Yes, it is hungry. You would have observed so many animals in which people would do often show or do some other display. The animal would be hungry and every compliance every trick on everything you would feed it something it is as it obliges and complies then you will get to see it's been fed and that's how you kind of empty on any plays along for either shabby.

00:29:15--> 00:29:20

But that animal leaving Brazil the horse right all smooth.

00:29:21--> 00:29:57

Just leave it to eat just leave it to sleep. Just leave it to struggle alone. You weren't able to get onto the back of that animal. You won't able to take a load onto that convenience, which the Quran says what after Emmylou tala Camila Bella den lambda Kono Bailey de la Bishop till enforce that these creatures these animals these conveniences Allah has made of course with respect and dignity. Today Much has been said about animal rights and rightfully so. But as believers, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had spelled it out to us 14 centuries ago

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

for Allah

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

Fear Allah with regards to these mute creatures for kabu harsanyi hotton What truco has salejaw mount on to this convenience when you have attended to it, in fact, in more hajizade of the miracles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there are incidents of camels and conveyances coming to complain to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the occasion of hijjah tonawanda when he sallallahu alayhi wasallam had slaughtered 63 camels, and camels are not that bad, but it is now her way you pierce it with a spear for selenia Rebecca one hell perform prayer for your Lord and slaughter year refers to the piercing act of camels 63 camels, which was a tedious task, and was a reflection of

00:30:47--> 00:30:58

the physical strength of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam narration suggests that the animals came forward to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So coming back to the point of reflect reflection, that

00:30:59--> 00:31:11

when it's a bridle the horse and it's a disciplined horse and it's a tame the horse and you mount onto the back then you can do magic and charisma with that animal. The Quran sways oats upon it, and high Lama.

00:31:13--> 00:31:51

Allah has attached goodness, but when it's an unbridled horse, and you leave it to just indulge and just sleep, then you will get nothing out of it.

Assad to konoha fee and young legal insert no nafsa who was Shaka to fee and Tom Lika who Natsu

00:31:53--> 00:32:09

you know, what's the definition and the yardstick and the benchmark of excellence you my brother, my sister, that you have control over yourself and your lower self does not have control over you? And that brings me to the quotation of Mohammed bin idrissa Shafi Rahim Allah

00:32:11--> 00:32:34

He said, Sir him to Sofia falam interfere I mean home in la de Cali methane, I had the privilege of spending years in the company of saintly individuals. And I can narrow down all my interactions and my learning experiences to two words. Number one, I'll work to save.

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

Time is a sword for any lump.

00:32:40--> 00:32:54

Either you strike at it or it strikes at you in English, they say our lives are like identical suitcases. Some people pack more in it than others.

00:32:56--> 00:33:18

Our lives are like identical suitcases. You're going on holiday you pack in the trunk of your car. Some people are very practical in the manner in which they pack and others are not. So some would put two bags in the trunk and the boot is done and others are very practical. Our lives are like identical suitcases.

00:33:19--> 00:33:21

They there is a verse in

00:33:22--> 00:34:15

15 years chapter 18, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the youth who slept in the cave. And then after three centuries, they got up and then they asked each other how long did we sleep comm lab with Tom Barlow lab ethna, Yeoman, our back biome, so they said probably half a day or one day and then another group from them replied, call Laura boom Alamo be my lab if your Lord knows best, how long you slept, and there is a subtly hint in the formation of the sentences that the scholars deduce that there is a generally in release from these IOD that the number of these people were seven as well, although it follows in the next page as well. Number one, Karla elumen home

00:34:15--> 00:34:49

Kamla bestem one from amongst them said Carla ilumi. How long did you sleep so that's one person. Then a group from amongst them replied Carlo lab ethna, Yeoman Oba, Oba yom and Carlo is a plural expression, the minimum of which is three, probably half a day or one day when another group responded by saying or Rob Bogum Allah mobi Mallaby stone. So another group indicates another group of three people so three and three is six and one seven Subhan. Allah Subhana Allah the Quran is just amazing.

00:34:50--> 00:34:53

Ferber hi Sue hi delcom fabric.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

So Sen. Someone assigned someone that does to go in

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

Buy some food we are hungry and from this journalistically the scholars deduce the permissibility of partnership

00:35:08--> 00:35:23

that we embark and enter into a partnership relationship money was together. And we also learn from this year on a subtle note that it does not go against the station of reliance on Allah that when you traveling to keep money with you,

00:35:25--> 00:36:10

right because they had money and they said take the money and go to the nearby city and purchase some food. Say that are Moosa and Hadid were traveling and he said it now gotta bring our food with us. So they had food and the hamlet Zod la unifi at our call to get in food and provisions with you does not go against the station of nobility, and said no masala is Salam said la casa de Latina Min safaree na na Saba, we've been gripped by fatigue, de la jolla and Eva Hol Hol Cal Mirage winavi LA Unified will come on to say I'm hungry I'm tired I'm exhausted does not go against the station of nobility anyway, coming back to the point

00:36:11--> 00:36:16

further ado send someone in Arabic basic grammar far counts for 30

00:36:17--> 00:36:46

to denote sequence with no interval, while filmer comes for sequence with an interval. So if I say a girl to fishery B, to find him to I ate, I drank and I slept, meaning it was in succession and interrupted and that is why many scholars say that the Virgin Mary conceived and went into labor immediately. Why? Because the Quran said for her my lead to fun tuber that beat him again and puzzling for

00:36:47--> 00:37:04

my father. I hope the brothers are understanding what I'm saying. It's a bit of academic language but it's appreciating the depth of the Quran February through February zoo. So send someone which means for an alpha

map an alpha the meaning of fire is to leave an action turn could leftish brewery

or through Kumar laser be brewery in what I do now, whoever Rue de une La ilaha IL Allah, we get a message from a letter of the Quran Not a word, not a verse, not the one letter of the Quran tells us a message.

00:37:33--> 00:37:56

And what is it? Don't pre occupy yourself in something which is not relatively important. Focus on what is important. My brother you want to commence your journey of memorizing the Quran start now. Don't ask him how long it took him and how long it took her and where you started and when you ended it start.

00:37:57--> 00:38:00

I need to apologize to people

00:38:01--> 00:38:32

do it now. This is the night to apologize is the authentic Hadid. It's been classified as Hassan and Sufi authentic. I believe that on the night of the 15th of Shaban Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives but for yet truco hola Baba in those who harbor malice, rancor, animosity, antagonism discord, they matter is left on hold. Their matter is left on hold

00:38:33--> 00:39:06

until they don't resolve their differences. You want a quick way to Jana, I want a quick way to Jana. This is the night This is the moment this is the opportunity. Go and apologize to someone with whom you have a misunderstanding. Now I know you're going to tell me that they have caused you a lot of pain and they've inflicted a lot of trauma. My next question to you is and to myself that these individuals cause you more pain than the siblings of use of alehissalaam inflicted to use of

00:39:08--> 00:39:41

the pain that you suffered at the hands of your spouse, your siblings, your friends, your family members, was it more intense, more severe than the difficulty and the pain that Satan our use of alehissalaam sustained at the hands of his siblings? Definitely not. And Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam said latter three barella ecoman Leon Yaga fear Allah hola como our hammer Rafi mean, I have forgiven you and it is my prayer May Allah forgive you. Now.

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

Sometimes when you tell the person forgive they tell you easier said than done and absolutely correct spot on. You've knocked the nail on the head. I agree with you and every one of us at some point or the other have been offended, insulted, violated by a individual or multiple individuals in ruin.

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

Maharani under this I I came across a very profound piece of advice if I can say a profound piece of you know what psychology so it's mentioned in Romani with reference to Shakira money he writes and I wish you can appreciate this in Arabic, but nonetheless, I will try and unpack it and elucidate to the best of my ability. Man Nevada ltbi in ille de lumea ba ba mohyla Fatah him woman Nevada la him behind e f na a Yama will be more harsh Almighty him. Allah tala Illa use of Hina Isley, my my real cover k

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

is

00:40:48--> 00:41:28

the one who views the inflictions and atrocities of the humans through the apparent and the superficial eye. He will tie himself in litigations and arguments for his entire life. Why did you say this? But why did you do this but Who gave you the right? But legally I can do this, but that's character assassination. But I can take you to the clean I can fight my case. What they say in English, the one who always defends his child, will one day hire a lawyer to argue against his child. Discipline is not child abuse.

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

Discipline is not child abuse.

00:41:33--> 00:42:01

The one who always argues in favor even when his child is wrong, will tomorrow hire a lawyer to defend the mistake of his son. We need to make a distinction. Discipline is not child abuse. abuse is repugnant. And we abhor it and we shun it but discipline is key and essential. Otherwise, when we mollycoddle them, we incubate monsters. We incubate monsters,

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

woman, Nevada, he lay him be

00:42:09--> 00:42:33

the one who can look at the happenings of his life and observe what others have done to him through the lenses of the divine plan of Allah. He told me this, but because he insulted me, outwardly I was shattered. But internally, it brought me closer to my Creator.

00:42:35--> 00:43:27

This person accused me at work. And then I was retrenched, and I lost my job. And I went through a bad period. But in hindsight, that became the stepping stone for me to find a different source of income. And today, Allah has given me my own income, my own family's snubbed me, but because of that, I found my Creator. In essence, woman Navara lol healthy behind and happy, the one who views the inflections of the creation, through the deeper eye and the lenses of the overall planning of Allah. He does not embroil himself in these feuds, because he knows in the greater happenings of things, these people will know more than tools for the execution of the plan that Allah had decreed

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

for him.

00:43:29--> 00:44:01

So look at use of alayhis salam, when he looked at mudgeeraba at mudgeeraba da at how destiny panned out and played out, he looked beyond his brothers. If they did not drop him in the well, then a caravan would have not picked him up and he would have not ended in Egypt. And hence the scholars say, if there's anybody who benefited Musa alayhis salam, the most not objectively, but unintentionally and inadvertently, it was Pharaoh.

00:44:02--> 00:44:12

Pharaoh cause the greatest intended infliction, but actually the arrow came back to him and he benefited musala his Salatu was Salam.

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

Okay,

00:44:15--> 00:44:47

so I said that Imam Shafi Rahim Allah said Sam to sufia phylum interfere I mean whom Illa de Cali my team, I spent my life with pious people and I can narrow it down to two things. Number one, I'll work to siphon time is a sword. Either you cut at it or it cuts at you and on that we digress. That otro kumala is a barbarian don't pre occupying yourself in to get into what you need to do. Focus on what's supposed to be done. What do ma whoever Rudy Yun

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

and the second thing Neff Sook in shagufta Happy Happy Hour shaka laka bill Burton. Either you dictate to your ego or then you succumb to the day.

00:45:00--> 00:45:25

dates of your ego you have one of two choices. In surah two NASS the last chapter of the Quran We ask Allah asylum from two devils mean Elgin, it oneness, right on which Allah concludes the Quran, mineral genetti oneness, not the last chapter to be revealed but the last chapter in the sequence of the Quran the last chapter is Surah Nasir surah toto de or the chapter on farewell.

00:45:26--> 00:45:38

So we ask Allah protection and asylum from the devil, be the devil of the jinn GYN, or the devil of the human kind, what is meant of the devil of the human kind?

00:45:41--> 00:45:48

And from this, we also learn again, I just have a quick thought here. Okay, let me mention this and I'll share that subsequently.

00:45:49--> 00:46:45

Allah save me from the whispers and the indoctrination of the devil, and save me from the whispers and the indoctrination of the human devil. Who is the human devil? Chef is the dean makes mentioned in his book alpha eight famous kiloton Quran, Chef Prince, the dean ignore abdus salam in his monograph. Alpha eight v Masekela till Quran, he writes there, that the devil from the jinn or the devil from the human kind refers to the neffs. The devil from the jinn is shippon eboli is who we refer to, but the devil from the human kind is our own knifes hands. Amongst the prophetic prayers is Allahumma inni rutabaga mean Charlene FC, Allah save me from the evil of my own base desires

00:46:45--> 00:47:05

saved me from my own evil desires. Again, my brother, my sister, my listener, my view with a message I am driving is, we need a life of discipline we need a life of discipline. The more we bring our life into discipline, the more meaningful our life will become, the more productive our life will become.

00:47:06--> 00:47:16

Under this idea where Allah subhanaw taala makes mention in Surah eunos in the 11 jewels of the Quran, Allah Allah the general Allah kumala Lolita schooner v one.

00:47:17--> 00:47:33

Allah is the one who has made the night for you Let us Qunu so that you can relax in the night you can get peace when the horror movie Sarah and the day is bright. Right? So the sign of the night is darkness and the sign of the day is brightness. What do

00:47:35--> 00:47:37

I attain if I'm a homeowner if

00:47:39--> 00:48:15

I attend a mobile setup, the day is brightness and that is what you want and the night is darkness. And that's what it's all about. So the darkness of the night is a symbol of the greatness of Allah while the brightness of the day is a symbol of the greatness of the Almighty. In Romani, it is written that in a sukoon and nursey filet Li Allah Aksum Wow, that people retire to bed and rest but the resting of every human is very different to that of a another for

00:48:16--> 00:49:15

filati for hello love filati yesterday hoonah yesterday Hoon and no fools, the people of You know what, who are negligent who are healers who are careless who don't have any discipline in their life for them night means is drop and sleep there's no time to sleep and there's no time to rise when my eyes open I will get up when sleep overpowers me I'll fall off to sleep that's the type of life what a Hello Maria yesterday hoonah ella I'm thoroughly him mean originally when this one and people have sent we'll spend the night with likely individuals have common of common, you know, common approach common thoughts common attitudes. So it's a life of sin of bias and indulgence. Well, hello, Tara

00:49:15--> 00:49:22

yesterday Haruna ala Hala, watty Amelie him, while people

00:49:23--> 00:49:33

of nobility and people of piety. They would spend their night in the worship of the Almighty.

00:49:36--> 00:49:46

They would spend the night in the worship of the Almighty. So it's the same night with the same duration. But it is spent very very differently.

00:49:50--> 00:49:53

In fact, Imam Shafi Rahim Allah used to say

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

fell in love He refused

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

Not to be in a hotel free lowly for hotel what they are different or who dama your chemo either Malaya Luma Allah Who? Allah enough see him in shade dirty whoa FEMA uttama firstly Haneda, McCann Effie, Vic Robbie Wolfie Massey well who filled woroch and Gemma Well yes, I am and mother admin shabby warmer Ghana feel happy jaha Lottie Adorama La ilaha illa Allah,

00:50:31--> 00:50:50

discipline in every matter Allahumma inni our rules will be coming shattered at number one of the prayers, our last save me from being dis organized in my matters. The life of a believer is a very structured and a very disciplined life.

00:50:55--> 00:50:59

So what did he mean Shafi Rahim Allah say Imam Shafi said fairly

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

irif in a debate in notifii bullae for routine what do you do jeffer know who dama

00:51:08--> 00:51:58

to Allah belongs the virtue of that man who devotes a portion of his night in the lane of Magda balama when it is dark. What does he do? Firstly, Haneda. mcguffey Vickery Robbie, he is the most articulate when he converses with his creator of immersi wellfield woroch Anna Gemma and ask him to praise anybody else besides Allah is his mute. He doesn't say anything and ask him to praise Allah He never die is praising Allah. When you go to a yum and mother to mean shabby, warmer Ghana feel her Bill jaha let the drama and when he converses, and he communicates with his creator. Then the night is young for him and he can spend hours and hours and hours.

00:52:01--> 00:52:14

So two things spend your time correctly, which advocates the message of discipline and take control over your ego? Lisi destroys you, in fact in the 13 jewels of the Quran

00:52:16--> 00:52:17

in

00:52:18--> 00:52:32

in Surah Ibrahim in Surah Ibrahim, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the prayer of Ibrahim alayhis salam wa Taala Ibrahim or a badger aloha del Bella Amina genu. Bernie, we're Bernie and nabooda.

00:52:33--> 00:53:29

And remember the time when Ibrahim alayhis salam said, Oh my Lord, make this place safe and secured and save me and my children from idolatry Save Me and my children from idolatry. It's mentioned in biannual Quran, Allah Allah and ambia lamea Manu Allah and foresee him that the ambia word the purest of Allah's creation, yet they asked Allah protection della Allah and allambie lumea Manu Allah unfussy him for gave me men who are fee Taka Lubin Bain and FC was shaped on equal learning. So what about the regular individual the common individual, the ordinary motor like you and I, who are grabbed between the clutch of the devil and the clutch of the ego, fella young brother, I had a

00:53:29--> 00:53:44

young turn Robbie highly he will become early. So nobody should be arrogant. Nobody should be arrogant about his position of nobility, because Allah can strike and seize at any time.

00:53:45--> 00:54:15

There is this amazing incident of Suleiman of no Abdel Malik, where he asks to me to what abou hands him. A bow has him for those who don't know, was a web at draka if at Amina Sahaba, who had the privilege of sitting in the company of Sahaba How did Hassan personally describe the Sahaba Kanu Allah our party him? I shared the Harrison min gum Allah Dada he may come with a nanny recomb

00:54:16--> 00:54:30

con O Allah O kar de him as shad de hierro son min coma Allah da da Himiko Medina ni recon they were more protective of the time than you are of your wealth

00:54:32--> 00:54:47

when it comes to wealth a that's my god a that's my purse a that's my wallet a don't swipe a don't take. I'm very protective. The noble companions may Allah be pleased with them. We're more protective of their time. We're more protective of their time.

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

So I had the privilege of sitting with many luminaries and giant Sahaba rizwana lohit Allah Allah image mine. So So the amount of na Abdul Malik said to

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

him Muhammad Ali Jaffa What is this betrayal?

00:55:05--> 00:55:11

So what has him said? What are you Jaffa in vitamin D? And what betrayal Are you referring to?

00:55:13--> 00:55:21

So, so the amount of Abdul Malik said czar Ronnie Whoo hoo, nasty Willem de Zuni many people visit me and come to me and you don't visit me.

00:55:23--> 00:55:44

You know, I will have Son Son, Delhi, Abolhassan son Delhi was a great scholar. The King of the time told him that why didn't you come and visit me when everybody else visits me? He said Lee Annie arato an takuna mean hiral Manu. Hi assuta zu Rola wala akuna min Chanel Halima Luke,

00:55:46--> 00:56:02

because I wanted you to be the best of rulers who consider it a need to sit at the company of the pious and learn. And I didn't want to be classified as the worst of scholars who go with a begging bowl to the rulers and the monarchs.

00:56:04--> 00:56:42

And obviously, that was what they see referred to as as rebuttal. mosqueta. it just leaves you completely silenced. There's not no response to this year. So Abraham said to Solomon, Abdel Malik, that enamel Jaffa Hakuna Matata betrayal is after recognition. I never knew you and I don't know you so how can you say I betrayed you? So when he heard this, he said, I saw a shave. What after a meal the chef is correct in what he said these were through scholars, these were through scholars. These were people of knowledge in its true sense.

00:56:43--> 00:56:45

I've been speaking about this recently.

00:56:47--> 00:57:05

You can download knowledge my brother and you can download info or you can download information my brother, but you cannot download knowledge by the press of a button a lot of information can be processed, but knowledge there is a certain protocol to it.

00:57:07--> 00:57:22

Yes, we need to be clear about it. When cedra musala is Salatu was Salam was stole that there is a man called Javi read the confluence of the two oceans and he was ready to travel. From this we learn

00:57:24--> 00:57:37

fee he Elgin dual beleve fi LG dual belly led Paula bill more shade the Mullah Mia footmen who have gone out of Minho. that a person

00:57:38--> 00:58:01

should be prepared to travel relentlessly in the quest of finding spiritual guidance provided it is not at the cost of compromising in your other duties. And the qualifying statement is you have the passion of knowledge as a father you cannot shirk your duties and say you know what? I'm traveling to acquire knowledge and you abandon your family No, not at all.

00:58:03--> 00:58:23

So we need to qualify that but we will gentle belly Lee fallible more shade you need cure you will cross the continents because there's only one doctor like this in the continent and to like this in the world and he has this ability and this skill and whatever it is and you will go because it's your health. Why not for our faith and our Iman and our spirituality.

00:58:27--> 00:59:07

So then, Oppo has him said salamandre Abdul Malik said to Oppo hires him enough enough seishun an app to an off the Bihar a lake you know there are things that's bothering me in my life. And I would like to get some counsel and guidance and direction from you. So abrahamsen rakhimov Allah said hottie ha wala Hall mastan Go for it. May Allah guide me, I'm happy to advise to the best of my ability. The first question and again, it's coming back to my theme. Check yourself before you wreck yourself, discipline yourself, bridle yourself, limit yourself, restrain yourself in that is the joy of this world and ultimately the happiness of the Almighty.

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

And that's the discipline. lm an F is so me seeing certain lanes at V. I just have a flash now. Mohammed Hassan he says that fast has a speciality which is exclusive to fast and nothing else. What is it?

00:59:26--> 00:59:26

That

00:59:28--> 00:59:46

Allah subhanho wa Taala has directed fast to himself as so Molly, were an adze behave, fasting is for me and I will compensate for it. What Kapha behind the hill a bar for the sheriff and commercial raffle beta Illa enough say

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

and this is a sufficient honor for a believer like Allah referred to the bar as water here by de la pa a feed that purify the cap bar.

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

purifying my house the ancient house Albania lartigue.

01:00:05--> 01:00:12

So Allah subhanho wa Taala referred to the Kaaba as his house, although every Masjid is the house of the Almighty but in honor and respect,

01:00:13--> 01:00:41

and Allah referred to first as his number two, and now Who am I alone? bartholin en la Yara hula, hula hula huria it is a private secret in discrete action, the creation cannot observe it's not tangible. It's not physical, it's not apparent, it's hidden. So, the likely would have ulterior motives to set in it is rare because you cannot display your fast you cannot display your fast

01:00:42--> 01:01:19

and then mm kausalya rights and who are only or do we love that fast is a blow to the enemy. Leanna will see later I do we a Sha two. We're in nama guasha Hawa to be ugly what should be warmer dama de Sha two more swaybar done for Shell Tino yatala Duna Illa Valley kalamera Wahby Turkish Sha de la haemangiomas La La ilaha illa Allah these words are amazing of him because Allah let me try and unpack this. Yeah. He says Rahim Allah

01:01:21--> 01:01:23

Mohammed's words are just amazing. Amazing.

01:01:24--> 01:01:33

He says that observing the fast which is a great level of discipline is a blow to the devil.

01:01:34--> 01:02:07

Harun Lee I do, Willa. Why Leanna was sila tell I do we are chawan because the avenue of infiltration for the devil is indulgence. We're in nama taqwa Sha two bill actually was should be. And if there's anything that fuels the lust in you, is to eat more and drink more. The more you eat, the more you drink. The more vulnerable you are, the more susceptible you are. The more prone you are the more the devil draws you towards sun.

01:02:08--> 01:02:22

One my Dharma Tisha Hawa to see button. And as long as the meadows and the pastures of indulgence are green, the devil will graze in those pastures

01:02:23--> 01:02:34

but if you stop eating and it's dry and it starts with rain, the devil doesn't want to come and grazier will be 30 Shahar Why did the leap or I lay him only masala

01:02:36--> 01:02:39

what they say in Arabic as so more

01:02:41--> 01:02:48

you burn that to sadati what rebind the to sad that is sad that to Larry Bird daddy

01:02:50--> 01:03:03

are so more rebounder to Sir dirty. Fasting is the worship of leaders and the worship of leaders is the leader of worship.

01:03:05--> 01:03:17

As so more I burned the two sir daddy abou Mama rhodiola one who said more knee beer Hamelin and the whole Jana, a prophet of Allah give me advice of an action I can go into Jana.

01:03:18--> 01:03:28

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Allah could be so fast because there's no action equal to him. The entire month of Siobhan is a man too fast.

01:03:29--> 01:03:49

Besides Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam used to fast excessively in shabaan, the Yom may be the 13th and the 14th and the 15th of each month are days that we should first Allah be sown fast. Because there's nothing equal to eight, pharma row a abou, Mama, Walla,

01:03:51--> 01:03:54

Walla, phi d, mu, enlasa, Yama,

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

Yama, Yama, his spouse and his servants would fast continuously

01:04:02--> 01:04:27

for either a row efe diary him Doha noon, if perchance you seen some smoke, or you got some fragrance, and you realize food was being cooked there, then it was a known thing. nazzer lobby him now as a loan out by phone, that there was a visitor visiting, that's why they were not fasting, otherwise they took to it.

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

So this is it my brother, it is a I always say to the how far Ramadan becomes an opportunity for us to do what we suppose to do. The preservation of the Quran is my duty and my responsibility, whether there was taraweeh prayer or not, like people might argue and say you are also worship in stone. You are facing the Kaaba, and the scholars give us the explanation that this is a direction that

01:05:00--> 01:05:20

Allah has given us for unification in prayer. But Allah forbid, Allah forbid, even if hypothetically the Kaaba were to be destroyed, we will still face the same direction because we are motivated by the command of Allah and not the physical burden itself.

01:05:23--> 01:05:30

So tarawih prayer helps me to preserve what I suppose to preserve independently.

01:05:31--> 01:05:45

Tarawa is not there for me to preserve my Quran, that's a separate injunction and the preservation of the Quran is a separate responsibility on me. Anyway, coming back to what I was saying

01:05:46--> 01:05:57

that so the amount of na Abdel Malik in his interaction with Abu Hasan, he said mal Anna, Anak, Rahul mode, what's the matter that we tend to despise that?

01:05:59--> 01:06:11

So Abrahamson replied on the turn later, Nana, Myrna dunya now her robina retina for nakahara meenal ahmari for Necro Hoon horos minella Amar Elan hora.

01:06:12--> 01:06:59

Why do we despise that? He said because we've developed and established and populated this world we've adorned it decorated it given it all the whistles and the bells, and we've left our Jannah desolate and barren. It comes in the Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said on the night of Mirage I met Ibrahim and he conveyed Salaam that give your own my my Salam and tell them that Jana is to Iran. It's a barren land each man's gender is what he invest in it. It would be foolish to see a person dishing out or distributing envelopes. Wow. It's brimming envelopes. And each one has 1000 crispy notes of US dollars in it or pounds in it or you know whatever else in it. So okay, I just

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

need to buy myself a stack of envelopes.

01:07:03--> 01:07:16

envelopes are very cheap. It won't even cost you $1 it will cost you 10 Ren would cost you very cheap, but that's an empty envelope. That envelope is up to you what you put in it. Each man's Jana is what he develops in it.

01:07:18--> 01:07:58

In FL Jana de la hora. You're on the hook for Tony hava puto no harm in the hoodie ha in general. They are these palaces they designed like this. The balconies are like this Sahaba only be a villa before going into more details. Tell us the price. Tell us the price. What's the asking price for this year? We want to know like no no Tell me more. Okay. Wow. Amazing. Awesome. Great. Wonderful. And what about getting what I what it takes to to to qualify for that Jana lemon adorable Kalam. Atomic Bomb why Dharma swam was so loving lately when NASA Niam Lehmann Arthur Bell kalaam the one who knows how to speak my brother my sister, they say in order.

01:08:01--> 01:08:05

Kuru is karuizawa bhanwar a cache head be victa here

01:08:07--> 01:08:15

metus abon walay k Mira JB Victor. Hey, jab K. Kuru is abon walay cache has been a he victa

01:08:16--> 01:08:45

Meteor is abon walay come Mira che jB victa her job Kuru is abon. While a cache had been a he big thought, if you have a sweet tongue and a polite tongue, and you have a beautiful demeanor, then people will even buy chilies from you. And if you unfortunately have a rotten tongue, and you don't have a sweet tongue, then people won't even buy honey from you.

01:08:49--> 01:09:02

What they say? A flock a duck on here. Or someone who's khattala here dolla dolla cullotta Hey Tabata chalta hai ki dukane may Sona Hey accoya Hey.

01:09:04--> 01:09:17

Aflac is a shop. A flock is a shop character is a shop and the door to the shop is your tongue. When you open your tongue then we discover Are you selling gold inside or coal?

01:09:19--> 01:09:59

Are you selling gold or gold? Omar bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allah said adrak in a cell of wa whom Allah your own Allah Reba that a fistful it will have is so me what I can feel Kofi an arrow, the nurse for Fatah mo layli wasa m&r en la mia for the listener who, let's say Yo melta Yama, we set with the pious people. They never limited the definition of piety to nocturnal optional prayer, or optional fast, but they define piety as restrain in datang fucka mo Laney wasa m&r those who fast by day optional fast and offer optional units of prayer, but they do not harness datang

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

They do not bridle the tongue. They do not restrain the tongue or flexor yarmulke Yama, they will stand up as losers and porpoise on the day of the Yama.

01:10:11--> 01:10:38

So, what did the Prophet sallallahu wasallam say for Who is this palace Lehman apart well kalaam politeness of speech, automaton feed people feed feed, feed, I always say if you have the habit of feeding, then part of those guests the friends of Allah will come, and if you don't have the habit of feeding, then a day will come you will close the door and who did those people have in Turkey or closed the door they closed the door on to visitors who are Moosa and Javier Allah He was Salam.

01:10:39--> 01:10:56

For about a year by Evo, Houma, ferwerda, Davi, Haida, gwaii and atoma if you have the habit of feeding, you will have great people coming to your house. And if you decline in the process, you will refuse and deny the friends of Allah.

01:10:57--> 01:11:36

Allah Ramadan, Adama swam, make fasting a practice throughout the year, or Salah be Lainey one na Sunni yom and to offer the hijab at the time when the creation is sleeping. Okay, so why do we dislike death Leanna Myrna Donna robina Sara Tana, we've developed this world, we've populated this world we've established it, we've neglected and forsaken the latter. So nobody wants to leave a developed place and go into a deserted and a desolate land where there's no water, there's no inhabitation. There's nobody staying there. Nobody wants to do this. He said, Okay.

01:11:37--> 01:11:38

The next question.

01:11:40--> 01:12:08

So Mr. Abdul Malik as a boy has him later share array. Marlin are in the law here than I am so concerned How will I fail before Allah tomorrow? What's going to happen what will be of me tomorrow? He said Olive I'm Allah Allah kita Bella, present your action before the Quran and you will get the answer. And this is very key we need to understand this year when Mohammed or the Alon who was about to pass away he stopped people around him started crying. So

01:12:10--> 01:12:54

he asked them are you bekijken what makes you cry? They said Nikki Haley, Laurie mill levy and Kathy demotech we cry over the knowledge that will go with you as you pass away. So he said in Elena will imana McKenna Houma. Yama, I am going but knowledge and eemaan will remain many Bottega Huma, Huma, whoever will search for it will find it I am not here but it will remain right Ramadan is a period of time it comes and goes but fasting remains Salah remains poor and remains they might not be taraweeh prayer. But knuffle prayer remains. So the act of worship continues money mitaka Huma Huma whoever searches for it will find it then he said

01:12:57--> 01:13:28

for already do lol kitabi kolel column for Avenue Ll kitabi, Kunal Kalam while at every Dollar Shave Club, that analyze every piece of information through the lenses of the Quran, and do not subject the Quran and do not subject the Quran to any other form of information. So when you tell me something, I will analyze it through the what the Quran says. And I do not scrutinize the Quran because the Quran is the word of Allah which is absolutely true.

01:13:30--> 01:14:11

So what did say man? Abdel Malik say? He said earlier I'ma call it tabula present to action before the Quran. So he said what energy to houfy tabela? Was it in the Quran? In abohar? Allah feanor him we're in alpha jar Allah fie jakeem verily the pious will be in comfort while the wicked will be in hell. And each person can decide for himself Allah says in the Quran, that on the day of the Yama each man will know that man Allah enough see he basura well camara de la you know your reality you know your reality, before the paper or the marks can be released as a student, you know what to anticipate because you know, what you had written, you know, you know what, how you had answered

01:14:11--> 01:14:13

your, your question paper,

01:14:14--> 01:14:28

for international law is the mercy of Allah. So, Allah has him said in naramata law, he caribou mineral mazzini, the mercy of Allah is close to the friends of Allah, if you do good deeds, then the mercy of Allah subhana wa Taala will be with you.

01:14:29--> 01:14:59

So, then he said later, Sherry, kayfun, Kudu, Allah, Allah azza wa jal, how are we going to appear? In which manner will we present before Allah? Wow, look at this reply of him. These were saintly individuals. He said, I'm Malmo sin. Circle wa AB yaku. De Morella. Halle. Well, I'm Malmo co faculty RB del bt u serpo. Ala Moana moussaka. appearing before Allah

01:15:00--> 01:15:03

A pious person will come like how

01:15:04--> 01:15:16

a person returns to his family. People often ask me the question, Don't you get tired of travel. And I say to them, the excitement of travel

01:15:18--> 01:15:40

is soon. You know, it disappears. And it ends, the excitement, the entertainment, the thrill of traveling in body in hotel, airport, lounge, business class, all that excitement and novelty with is very quickly. But the joy of returning home to your family never ends.

01:15:42--> 01:15:51

It never ends. There is an excitement to come home for the rest of your life. It's just it's that's how it is.

01:15:53--> 01:16:08

You could be a globetrotter. You could be a seasoned traveler. You could be out of the house every week. But just to know tomorrow I'll be back at home with the family having dinner and sleeping on my bed, having a shower at home, etc. It's just a natural thing being at home is unique.

01:16:09--> 01:16:33

And I often say to people on that note as well, that you know what? We live in a world where today eating out has become the culture eating out you can eat something one week, two weeks, three weeks after that you just lose taste of it. But at home on our menu, there are certain meals we eat did every week on a particular day and we do in that for the last 20 years.

01:16:35--> 01:17:22

Right. I can just see the brothers are smiling. Friday after Juma you know the menu. It's a standard menu for many home Saturday evening, whatever it is, it's just that's it. But it's so perfectly fine and acceptable. But eat food that is on the run. You know what Meals on Wheels and food on the run and once and twice and you've just lost the touch. And that just shows you the Baraka and the blessings of food that is cooked and prepared at home is so much more wholesome and so much more meaning. I'm Mel Matson sokolova aviya to demo Allah La, the one who obeys Allah, it's like a person coming back to his family. Wow. In kalibo Isla de Masaru Ra.

01:17:23--> 01:17:24

Well, I'm Mel musi

01:17:25--> 01:18:30

and for the one who does obey is Allah for kalaba dill, beating yourself to Isla Mola hisoka It is like a slave who has a load from his master, apprehended, intercepted and he's been dragged back to his master. Look at the choice of words in the Quran describing the delegation of the pious versus the group of the wicked. This is made mentioned in the 16 Jews of the Quran in chapter 19 Surah Maryam Allah subhanho wa Taala says one natural mattina a man he was the one so called emoji Remi, Ella and Johanna will de la ilaha illa Allah If only you could comprehend Arabic, one not sure one na sure rule 13 illa money worth da and those that feared Allah will be assembled and gathered and

01:18:30--> 01:18:48

congregated as a dignified delegation in the court of Allah one asou call Majidi Meena ala Jahan Namah wierda while the criminals will be driven like thirsty cattle are driven to water

01:18:50--> 01:19:09

though they will come they're not to water weird monsters while a ma Rama and Maddy and so what are the means thurs and a thirsty person comes to water. So even the expression of words by the Quran is distinct in the approach of the buyers May Allah make us amongst those people.

01:19:10--> 01:19:18

So when Solomon Abdul Malik heard this Baka Hata Allah Allahu wa stirred the Buddha who he just started crying. He said

01:19:19--> 01:19:37

waha del mal mesabi louella taqwa la Heaphy this wealth that we have this wealth, how do we get the balance in it? How do we get the balance in it? He said either we'll be happy to move Mu beinahe what are some two mu b so we're, we're adult on Fie binary

01:19:38--> 01:19:48

sample. Make sure you take the wealth lawfully. You do not snatch, usurp, or do anything fraudulant

01:19:49--> 01:19:55

to check chapters of the Quran commence what whale Surah doniphan Quran by the bill whale.

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

I'm Wally naswa Thani. We are robbing us

01:20:00--> 01:20:12

One speaks about those who are fraudulent when it comes to wealth, and other speaks about those who attack the honor of people, while only calling home as it lumas. That

01:20:14--> 01:20:15

won't be to those people

01:20:17--> 01:21:02

who speak ill of people behind their back home as a means to backbite hammers a machete, in hammers in Musha in this is reference to Walid bin mahira, in the 29 years in Surah, to noon, so those who speak ill of people behind their back, Lou Meza who speak ill of people on their face. So sometimes we say, I'm not making rebored I'm talking behind his back, but I'll tell him on his face, that doesn't make it right. That's a separate wrong, lateral Meizu and fossa comb. If you want to address the wrong then there's a protocol in doing it. What did he ma'am Shafi Rahim? Allah said, he said the hamadani be no speck of infura D, which are nibblin nussey heterophylla jamaah, for in the news

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

have been a nurse You know, one minute Toby Allah, Allah is Dima. Oh my brother, if you've observed my mistake, and surely you have because I'm a fallible mortal, and you observe my folly, take me one side and talk to me lovingly, I will listen to you the whole day. But don't rebuke me in public because I don't know if your motive is reformation, or to ridicule me.

01:21:23--> 01:21:46

What 30 3am while in us and the other chapter where you know, little motto 15 will be to the fraudster who takes from people when he needs to demand his do he takes in full, but when he gives others he is deficient, and I don't know Allah, he can rule soon. So what is the balance? What is the balance

01:21:47--> 01:22:13

in the second juice of the Quran in surah baqarah where Allah subhanaw taala speaks about that if you die and you leave behind, and you know what an empire or you leave behind an estate or you leave behind wealth, then you got to make a bequest more So prior to the laws of inheritance that were revealed. Good Eva la comida hamara hai de como el momento en Tanaka hi Ronnie was

01:22:15--> 01:22:34

good Eva la comida hamara hai de como el modo in tharaka. Allah has decreed upon you made it mandatory upon you to make a bequest in tharaka higher if you've left behind wealthy or failed refers to wealth like in Saudi Arabia, we're in the Holy hawkbill hydrilla shadid man's love for wealth is intense.

01:22:35--> 01:23:22

And natalka man, love you now failed Kemal Mara adai hupo T. The fact that Allah is telling you if you die and you leave behind wealth, that means Allah is allowing you to die leaving behind an empire and an acid because Allah is legislating what must be done with that wealth. So in principle, it's permissible, hence the scholars right, that to leave behind wealth, provided you've discharged the obligation does not go against the station of nobility and piety. In the 16th jos in chapter 18, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the dual carnation the man who travelled the east and the west, in McCann, Allah who fell out of warranty now who me human coalition in sababa. We gave him strength

01:23:22--> 01:23:57

power, kingship Dominion on the earth. Under this it is mentioned in biannual Quran under Messiah Illa salute and also lol man had telfa in warfare Soulja had the Sultana LA Unified command, to acquire well to the extent of treasures and to acquire prominence to the extent of kingship does no does not go against the station of nobility. Allah is praising him Allah is praising him. And the scholars say the biggest proof that Allah wants us to earn is he has exhorted us to spend and prohibited us from begging

01:24:00--> 01:24:58

the biggest proof that Allah once asked us to earn is Allah tells us in the Quran, spend spend and Allah says don't beg. So earning is fine in our effort to move we'll be happy but yes, Abdullah bin Mubarak said an hour road de dieren Hi ma'am Min shuba hurtin a Hubble Illa min un at Assad duck Bay, Serbia Remi it al Durham I would prefer refusing a doubtful Durham and say no, no, no according to my teachings and my religious teachings, that's doubtful I cannot take that. I would prefer that. Then indulging in that doubtful income and spending 700,000 Durham's in charity, and I wrote the data hammer min Shobha hubco a min n at the sadhak be served bury me at the alphabet. Yes. What was

01:24:58--> 01:24:59

the problem with the nation of shoe

01:25:00--> 01:25:29

verbally his Salam they said to schreib don't interfere in our dealings Bhanu Yahshua rainbow Isola toccata America and not Roca Maya Buddha una Oh anaphora Luffy unworldly nama Nasha in Nigella anta Halima Rashid. And because of the arrogance. Sure, a ballet Salam was known as katiba ambia The orator in the galaxy of prophets, yet they tell you I believe Salaam we don't understand when you speak.

01:25:30--> 01:25:39

When you don't want to listen, my brother, then even the or later of the galaxy of prophets, words will not penetrate your heart.

01:25:40--> 01:26:21

doesn't mention in madico benzyl shrayber A Salaam is hottie ambria. And what does his nation say to him? Call? Oh, yeah, sure. Hi, Ebo man of McAfee Rami matakohe we don't understand what you say no, we don't know what you're talking really we don't know how people MBR the operator of MBR. The most articulate person have, of course the messenger sallallahu wasallam was the best of all humans, but Nabila is salatu salam praise rabalais salat wa salam and said this, and this is what his nation said. So coming back to these advice, discipline in our world discipline in our eating discipline in every aspect of our life, it will be hard to take the wealth lawfully overnight or to move early

01:26:22--> 01:26:57

and distributed to those that you need to distribute it will cause some tomorrow be severe. And you do it fit fairly well I dealt on fee binary earlier or delta V you adjust with the subjects because obviously he was the governor and he was the ruler. When Omar bin Abdulaziz rahima, hula had become the Khalifa. Right? And then, the night before was in the rituals of burying the halifa, etc, the previous Khalifa. So he was tired, he was exhausted. And he put a butler at the door that he must be given this time to rest and recover. And nobody must

01:26:58--> 01:27:23

interfere with him so that he can just gather himself today when you sworn into office. It's a big bash when you inaugurated it's a big party. It's a big banquet. Millions are just splashed in that inauguration, leave alone all the other funds that are embezzled and abused. And then there's a knock at the door and who is it it is his son so the man the son of Omar bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allah someone praise Ahmed bin Abdulaziz and said

01:27:25--> 01:27:28

she Shema Luca how you Romania mean you see worker

01:27:30--> 01:28:14

Shima Luca you Romania mean let's see worker generally you refer to the right hand in Arabic, as it's the right hand and it's also a sign of power of might have goodness of greatness. Can you do rasulillah sallallahu wasallam alumina Leto, who de Tanami wasabi what Ghana dia de Julio psoralea holla he mecanim in other he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that we eat we drink with the right hand and if we need to do anything related to impurity, then it is with the left hand. That's the teachings of our Habib sallallahu wasallam so you often say right hair is used in a symbolic expression of might in a con con tone tattoo Nana Analia mean, in a con kuntum tattoo Nana Analia

01:28:14--> 01:28:37

mean, and generally you would say the left hand is not so active, it's not so productive. So someone prays the hammer bin Abdulaziz and he said shimanto Cafe room mini amin is a worker, your left hand is more productive than your right hand. Your old age is more meaningful than the youth of others. Your Knight has more meaning than the day of others.

01:28:39--> 01:29:25

So Omar bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allah comes home he rest is a knock on the door, who is it is his son. He's told that your dad is resting his diet. Nobody can come he says just ask my father. I need to talk to him one minute. So because he's his son, he is ushered in. He comes to his dad he nudges him he says Dad You have become the halifa now and you need to address the in justices that you have inherited from the previous ruler you have succeeded him. So he said oh my son, just give me grace, despite the war. And then I will get up and I will start with it. So the sunset to the Father woman Lockerbie and Teresa in the bow Hurry, woman Lockerbie and the Isha in lazarey. Oh my dad one

01:29:25--> 01:29:59

question to you, who takes the responsibility that you will live and survive the VA her prayer for authority? No mermin benei i na. When the father heard this, he forgot sleep for the period of his rulership. And then he embraced his son. And he said Alhamdulillah Hill levy of Raja min Sol be mejor ino Niala Dini, All praise belongs to Allah has blessed me with a son who is

01:30:00--> 01:30:13

is a motivation for me to Ward's virtue and nobility? Wow. What a relationship. What a relationship when more or we have been who they age, who was

01:30:15--> 01:30:33

the envoy that had come from Alexandria, when the battle was been fought there during the period of armor of nahata. And he came at midday when it was siesta. And omoplata was the last thing but he was very anxious he needed updates if the Muslims were victorious or not.

01:30:35--> 01:30:36

In his country, yeah.

01:30:37--> 01:31:07

So Robin Hood he came are the Allahu anhu and then he went to his home and engaged in his own chores. Subsequently, Amara, the olana got when that the envoy from the expedition had returned. So Amara, the Alon who called for him immediately and summoned him when he came. Amaro, the alarm said you came here we waiting for news. You didn't inform me? He said, I thought it's midday so you'll be sleeping later when I meet up with you. I'll update you.

01:31:08--> 01:31:11

So hamara the Allahu anhu said

01:31:13--> 01:31:13

in

01:31:16--> 01:31:26

the year two robbery, yeah. We're in nim to Lail by Yamato FC for K for known bainer. Her they Nia Maria

01:31:27--> 01:31:48

O'Meara we are if I sleep by day, who's going to look after the creation and the duties and the responsibilities? And if I sleep by night, then when will I converse with my Allah with these two responsibilities on my shoulder, Monrovia, you find me the time and I'll put my head on the pillow.

01:31:50--> 01:32:31

It is mentioned about Imam nawawi, the great Shafi scholar who passed away at a very young age that for two years, ma Wada to jumbie Allah Fie Rashi for two years I didn't consciously sleep while writing while setting I fell off to sleep. And I would suffice you know, you you traveling and you say for four days I didn't eat what you mean is for four days you didn't have a solid meal. And that was because of your own leisure because you decided to do hiking or you decided to climb a mountain or you decided to do campaign so you wanted the feel on the run. So you have in an odd bitey an odd sub then you Manton something there and you're not having a decent meal for four days or five days,

01:32:31--> 01:32:40

or I didn't have a shower for a month meaning I didn't have a decent shower. Well mmm No we didn't sleep consciously for two years.

01:32:42--> 01:32:49

In some how to min somebody, Allah Allah, Allah Allah. Medina, as I know I'm taking a lot of time of the brothers. Forgive me.

01:32:52--> 01:32:57

Ignorant Medina as the ma'am shall be men. I enter like a local law.

01:32:58--> 01:33:07

You got so much knowledge where you got it from. He said four things when Ophelia Ahmad was saying he failed bilad was sabriel Mr. buku will rob

01:33:09--> 01:33:28

be Nuffield ottima The first thing through which I got knowledge I stopped relying on people because every time I used to rely on people they used to disappoint me. I often say in my findings of marital cases, one of the greatest causes of breakdown of marriages is elevated expertise, expectations in an underperforming world.

01:33:31--> 01:33:36

So the marriage broke up Why? No Well, I thought he'll do better.

01:33:37--> 01:33:51

I thought she will give me more. I thought the marriage will give but why are you and by elevating your expectations you predisposing yourself to disappointment? What they say

01:33:52--> 01:33:53

expectation

01:33:55--> 01:34:00

leads to tears and acceptance leads to Cheers.

01:34:02--> 01:34:09

Expectations will create tears because you disappointed you expected too much.

01:34:10--> 01:34:19

While acceptance will give you Cheers. Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is a principle of Quran is in my mind is running in too many directions.

01:34:21--> 01:34:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala exempted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from maintaining fairness between his honorable consorts it mentioned in the 22nd Jews in Surah tala

01:34:31--> 01:34:50

that you have the liberty you have the choice you have the concession any spouse you want to spend X amount of time there, but the province of Allah ism never use the concession leave alone abused it but then Allah goes on to say the reason of the exemption of rotation and justice between your spouses

01:34:51--> 01:34:52

is to help them

01:34:54--> 01:34:59

outwardly apparently it's in the interest of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he doesn't have to talk

01:35:00--> 01:35:12

himself to be here on this night and be there on that night vanliga at dinner and Takara Are you know hoonah Delica Adana and Takara you know hoonah

01:35:13--> 01:35:15

wire Robaina Bhima

01:35:17--> 01:35:31

mcaloon this is better, more comforting to their eyes Why? Now that they know that they don't you don't owe them adieu, they are not entitled to any time, they will value whatever time you give them.

01:35:33--> 01:35:40

They will value it. Wow. The problem today with the youth is expectations.

01:35:42--> 01:36:02

In Islam, you are a child and we kiss you and we hug you and we embrace you or you're an adult and you embrace responsibility. We have a window period of kids who say they too big to be children and too small to be adults. And now they don't know where they belong. And this segment of society has created havoc on the earth

01:36:04--> 01:36:30

Can I kiss you know, Uncle mom? And I'm no more kid. I'm no child. I'm sorry. Yeah, okay, so what you're up to? No, I'm just chillin. I'm just finding my feet. I'm just floating. Oh, really? So when I want to kiss you like you know what? No, no, it's not like me to know. I'm done with those days. And you in the world of where? What they say don't let that fool kiss you and don't let the kiss fool you.

01:36:34--> 01:37:25

So, what do you say the Nakamoto say? He said if I sleep by day, then when will I look after the creation and if I sleep by night for either for the fun sob surah Alam nasra or Muhammad Salah ism When you have completed the activities of the creation of the whole day seen to the guidance, their social welfare, they spirituality they're all related things. Fun sub NASA means Stand straight. But NASA has the meaning of fatigue in it as well. Leia mazoon Avi Hannah Sorbonne while I am asuna fee Hello. in Maryville Quran under this idea it is written that the idea incorporates a meaning that in prayer, you should stand to the extent of exerting yourself with the East some fatigue. Today you

01:37:25--> 01:37:29

came for taraweeh and you said My legs are pain in great fun sub.

01:37:30--> 01:37:34

Fun sub there must be some fatigue.

01:37:35--> 01:37:38

Today I felt the fast great

01:37:39--> 01:37:41

then it's a fast we need to go through it.

01:37:44--> 01:38:33

People decorate the hall Oh, I'm tired. Yeah, but at least the hall is done the draping is done. It was whole family was there and night and day and busy and trimming and trillions and the rest of it. You feel tired, you feel exhausted. You feel burnt out but you happy Mission accomplished. So what did Omar bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allah say? He said Al Hamdulillah Hilary Raja Minh sobey mejoramiento Niala Dini Allahu Akbar, how are these people to address the issues and he left the sleep and he got in? And then of course, he started attending to addressing all the you know, what in justices are all the wrongs that he had to inherit from his predecessor. Coming back, just moving swiftly through

01:38:33--> 01:39:19

it and trying to come to a conclusion and wrap up in sha Allah. The dialogue is very long, but just to select few things, then. So the amount of the Abdel Malik asked Abu Hazim wama deleeuw poll, which is the most just statement, he said calima to hockin, yaku, Helmer, ryndam, and Yahoo wearing them in your jaw. When you have the courage to utter the truth before someone you're either hopeful of or afraid of you hopefully he gives you employment. You hopefully he'll do a favor for you. Are you afraid? He will return to you afraid? He will? He will. You know what? There's some threat that is coming from him. So now that would in all likelihood compromise the veracity of your message.

01:39:22--> 01:39:43

Then he said one of the last sadhaka which is the best type of charity, he said don't don't kill motel. Joe hudl motel yava o fi ideal by a seal fucky mean lady Barbara who man known Villa de la ilaha illa Allah

01:39:44--> 01:39:59

what is the best type of charity, the letter the meager amount that a person has earned? And he discreetly puts it in the hands of a poor person without following up with any form of verb

01:40:00--> 01:40:54

Bone injury. You know what verbal injury Yeah, I helped you. Yeah, I supported you. Yeah, I've done for you. That is why the orlimar say, the person giving Zakat should go to the recipient who is entitled to receive because in doing so, you will remain humble, and the recipient will not be humiliated. But if you tell the recipient or the beneficiary of xhaka to come to your door, that will create arrogance in you and that will humiliate him and that goes against the essence of the system of record. I did you know favor? This is your share of well that Allah kept with me. Yes, well, we are muhuali him have gone my new Mona Lisa le well my room you know what the hell am I have

01:40:54--> 01:40:57

written I haven't thought of this now. Subhan Allah.

01:40:58--> 01:41:04

Allah, Allah say there are two benefits. Amongst the other benefits of Zakat, one is suddenly hydrated,

01:41:05--> 01:41:13

to address the need of the poor, and the other one is to purify the donor from greed.

01:41:15--> 01:41:28

That the more I give, the more Allah frees my heart from greed. Because the more I keep myself attached to wealth, the more greedy I become, the more I part with it, the better it is, the more it flushes out the greed of wealth from me.

01:41:29--> 01:41:30

And for so show off.

01:41:31--> 01:41:33

Right? That

01:41:34--> 01:41:55

intrinsically inherently part of our DNA and our anatomy is that we are we can be misers miserliness can be part of our our nature. But that doesn't mean that we are victims of it and now we surrender to it. somebody tells you you know what?

01:41:57--> 01:42:33

This medical condition is aridity and it's found in your genes so do you sit and just wait for it to come in overpower you know, you do all the more research you can so that you don't become a victim to age you know what architects is common in our family. So I got to watch my cholesterol I'm watching my my my pressure I'm watching this my diet I'm exercising, because there is a family history to it. There is a family history to it. In this year, so many people will die with this condition. Also many will die so stats are saying it so it's okay if I died with it. No, all the more I need to alert myself and I mustn't fall prey to that stat della Allah

01:42:34--> 01:43:09

undershelf minute tiberi yard right that this is part part of our nature, what will lead it and for so short, but it's within us the point that I was saying it is within us to find it and to overpower it and to get rid of it. So coming back to that point I was saying that there are two benefits of zakat. One is to help the poor and one is to free myself from greed. And between the two. The greater need is the purification of the donor against greed.

01:43:12--> 01:43:52

In the 11th, Jos Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about zakat. And as mentioned in merryfield Koran and that's why I'm sharing this reflection from hosemann.

So I need to give that

You didn't.

01:44:43--> 01:44:59

That is that is the wealth Allah has his share Allah had given to you and that's how we reconcile that the opening verses of the 12 jewels Allah says he is responsible to sustain every creature, yet people are dying out of hunger and the declaration of the Quran is that he will sustain everyone

01:45:00--> 01:45:49

The reason is that there are enough resources and there is enough wealth in this world and Allah has put a system in place. Unfortunately, unfortunately, we have abused the system and we have not discharged our duty. So we have defaulted. We have defaulted, where the elites have become super elite and the poor have slipped into abject poverty creating the gap if not a gulf, which then gives rise to a host of social evils.

01:52:37--> 01:52:43

Yes, while tokoto anfisa calm. Allah says don't kill yourself.

01:52:45--> 01:53:34

Some scholars say it means don't commit suicide. Other scholars say it means don't kill your brother because killing your brother is killing yourself. gela Lane says Be erotica be ma yo a de la holla ke ha a young Ghana with dunya will ask Allah don't kill yourself. Don't do anything that will destroy your spirit, your soul or your body in this world or in our era. That is the meaning of what to do and for sakam What's the message again? Check yourself before you wreck yourself. discipline yourself, discipline yourself. So others don't need to discipline you. An undisciplined man is a headache to himself and a heartache to others. Nothing is more common than a talented individual who

01:53:34--> 01:53:44

is deprived of success because of lack of discipline. I was mentioning to you and we digressed and I think I'm going to kind of wrap up ignore Medina

So that was the second thing. The third thing was sobre la Highmark How did I achieve what I achieved the perseverance of a mule perseverance of a mule

01:55:00--> 01:55:03

When did anybody give an analogy with a mule? Well, yes, yes, it

01:55:04--> 01:55:18

was in amadori by method Lu bisabolol. Mr. That if you go on a safari and you go on a, you know what game drive and you're looking at animals, nobody is intrigued at looking at a donkey or a mule.

01:55:19--> 01:55:51

You're gonna look at the big cats, you're going to look at the predators. You're going to look at the gazelles, you're going to look at the deers. You can look at the antelopes, you can look at the wild bees, you're going to look at it as a donkey tested on one minute, one minute, one minute, okay, zoom in No, no, no, no. In fact, you look at it and you remain quiet, especially if it's at night to see if somebody else is going to assume that to be a horse or a zebra, right? But because you have the closer Are you know what it is? So what happens? The donkey carries on with life. Nobody is killed. Nobody is worried about its presence or its absence. Nobody said they had a great

01:55:51--> 01:56:30

Safari. Only thing. One thing we didn't take off. I didn't see a donkey. No. on the reverse. If you see nothing but a donkey, then you dread that Safari, you dread it like, you know what, really, I could have gone to the zoo and probably done better. So what's the message? It just takes along it just does itself. Don't be concerned by what's happening around you whether people condemn you praise you compliment you ridicule you. Just grace. Just keep on grace and just be at it. You need to be learning my brother, you need to some people gargle at the fountain of knowledge and others drink. May Allah make us amongst those who can drink at the fountain of knowledge.

01:56:32--> 01:56:43

Sometimes we just need to go and sit and tick a box that I set here and I did the scores and I have another certificate. No, no, we don't need to gargle. We need knowledge. It's not the certificate. It's the effect. We need to change the life.

01:56:45--> 01:57:00

And last but not least, we're buku Rob, and how early The crow rises. The crow rises suited to the hobby. He was sort of a hobby. So it's known about the crow that it leaves early. And it returns early. It read leaves early and it returns early.

01:57:02--> 01:57:04

So who is the most foolish person that's what

01:57:05--> 01:57:55

has him said then he said men, Arthur Lunas, who is the most intelligent person Rajan on Luffy rabita artillery he has our gela fidella NASA Allah Raja loon, Buffy rabita it lunghezza Virgil, a person who obeyed Allah and then he motivates people towards the obedience of Allah. And that's, that's the message. And that's the takeaway point. that how we can bring about a change. I spoke about the need of forgiveness, and asking forgiveness so that we can become the recipients of the pardon of Allah. one verse, Allah to high buena young fear Allah hula comb, when Abubakar the alarm who had vowed not to give Mr. hora de Allahu anhu money and Allah revealed the verse don't take an

01:57:55--> 01:58:18

oath and Allah said, Don't you want Allah to forgive you? And the Buddha said exactly our law I want I wanted indeed, definitely, surely certainly. Then Allah said forgive your brother and his sincerity of wanting the forgiveness of Allah. According to one narration he did not continue the monthly allowance. He doubled it.

01:58:20--> 01:58:30

So do I want a last forgiveness? My brother, my sister will forgive your brother and ask your brother for forgiveness. And if somebody has passed away, let me share with you something amazing I read.

01:58:32--> 01:58:49

Somebody has passed away and you had hurt him or you've offended someone and you cannot find him. There's this amazing academic discussion about the man who killed 100 people we know the Hadith, right? What God do you scan Allah tober till 30 and who erotica by them Benita Allah

01:58:53--> 01:59:05

there is an academic question. He killed two people. Those people are dead. And when you violate that someone that person you will not be forgiven by Allah tell that person forgives you. Well who am up to?

01:59:07--> 01:59:29

And he is dead. He cannot forgive you. I job aloha Phil Phil fat Hey. Well, I need to tell Cory after the hija writes in phulbari and allameh bedruthan ie writes in home that will carry B and Allah either Kabila to battle

01:59:31--> 01:59:33

the calf fella be Reba Hashmi.

01:59:36--> 01:59:59

This is the academic reply given the it's amazing that when Allah forgave the murder of 100 people, then Allah took it upon himself to appease the victims of his killing. Allah subhanho wa Taala will satisfy them please them and and attend to it on his

02:00:00--> 02:00:19

We have the cafe lobby rebuff asked me that the opponent the victim of this murder, Allah will take care of it. And upon this the scholars right what B is the de la Shea who Masha efinor from this the scholars right that if you've offended any human,

02:00:20--> 02:01:00

then you need to ask him for forgiveness. And that is the ruling. And you need to try every possible way to contact him. But if you cannot locate the person and find the person and you had offended him or insulted him burger badly, Murphy was sorry. And you tried every means for me know who you are for who we are optimistic that Allah will accept your sincerity of repentance, because you tried every measure to try and reach him but you could not based on this text from this hadith as I have academically explained. I'll leave you with these last words.

02:01:03--> 02:01:19

Abu Hashim Suleiman of Abdul Malik then told him that elfa Elena how to knock the Hala kumbhakarna Okay, okay, I appreciate all your advices Now, can you tell me what you want? Can you tell me what you want?

02:01:20--> 02:01:23

So he just dropped his head down there was no reply

02:01:24--> 02:01:54

settimana abdominal Malik said, If I can put that in paraphrase language, you know, people beg me to ask me for their needs. And I'm giving you the offer. And you like blank. So he said In fact, Elena, I got the muscle and the cloud I'm the man Tell me what you want. Not the halakha mama can add whatever you want. We'll take care of it. So Apollo has him said hi jetty and 2020 min and now we're to the philani altana my need is Please save me from hell and give me entry into Jana

02:01:56--> 02:02:07

recently one pious scholar that I know of he was setting and somebody was praising him and flattering him so after he completed praising him said okay, you're done. Can you give me my boarding pass of Jana please

02:02:09--> 02:02:19

give me my boarding pass of Jana said no I cannot. So why must I be inflated or conceited by your flattery isn't going to change anything is not going to change anything.

02:02:20--> 02:03:01

It's just like before you go in into the plane, somebody generates and prints his own body in cars and he puts a first class creates a seat number for you, puts a flight number there and puts a first class with your name and gives you this body in past like years. He has a boarding pass. Oh wow. Okay, first class adara, doula derogatory Dalai Lama, okay, right. Sweet a one a while, okay. It's generated by the aviation, by the online by the system by the airways, your own. That's a thrill yourself, excite yourself. You're not going to get into a coach or a bus or a train, leave alone a plane. Well, I'm praising you and you praise him. He's getting nothing. My request is get me into

02:03:01--> 02:03:09

Jana and saved me from hell. He said radicalism in chutney. Sorry. That's outside my control. So Oppo has him said sorry, I don't have another request.

02:03:11--> 02:03:14

Sorry, I don't have another request. So then,

02:03:15--> 02:03:56

so the man when Abdul Malik said xidan amin, MT robotic. You know what your pearls of wisdom are just amazing. Just keep on. Just just share it more and more, we just want to learn from you more. He said in quantum in at least a Java for people to Dr. Murphy Hill, California. If you're a person that he needs, then adequate has been told to you. If you're a person that he is and reflects and observes and sees what's happening, and processes and digests and internalizes then adequate has been conveyed. What a lump document is the Java and if you are not a person who he is what he has been conveyed, then why should I continue releasing an arrow that is not striking target? We ask

02:03:56--> 02:04:34

Allah subhana wa Taala to make us amongst those fortunate individuals who can see the remaining days of this month of shabaan allow us to exert our self in worship, within reason that can propel us prepare us to embrace the month of Ramadan, and may we be amongst those people who witness the sacred placid, momentous month of Ramadan. And may we be amongst those people who can stand in the night of other and enjoy those rewards of other and the night of other and the reward of other means.
