Hola rukmani Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallim

We're calling never use Allah love with Allah alayhi wa sallam Allahumma in the old obika been shuttered till Oklahoma cannavale Salatu was Salam. Honorable scholars respected brothers, friends and elders, mothers and sisters. One of the greatest

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

differentiating factors between us and our pious predecessors is they exploited time objectively and we waste time casually. As an adversary Rahim, Allah was once asked described Sahaba in a common definition. You seen the Sahaba and Hassan pastor he himself was so great that someone describing us and bursary Rahim Allah said in our own serie roho Colonia Te Waka Luca family he is a Amara Bhima roofing can Ahmed an scbwi What is our Nana and Moncure in Karnataka Nessie loco wa a to whom was suddenly a nanny nurse Zahedan be Murphy ad him. What are you to know some of that Gina Elaine has finally been in the hall. This is such an amazing description. And being part of the fraternity of

00:02:02--> 00:02:34

scholars or as they perceive us to be May Allah make us a monster or the MA. This gives you a shiver in your back. Somebody asked regarding Hassan personally that you live close to him described as industry to us. He said he is a man between host private and personal life, there's no disparity. If you get into his house, or you seen his public life, he's one in the same person. It's very easy to create an image in public, but it's very, very difficult to deliver on that perception in our four walls of our house.

00:02:36--> 00:02:44

In Muslim Sharif in the macadam on page 20. There is the quotation of Abdullah bin Mubarak. He said I had heard about Abdullah bin hopple

00:02:45--> 00:03:20

Abdullah bin Mohammed. I had heard about this person. And I read about him and I heard about him I was so impressed about him, but I had not met him that if I had to die without meeting him, and on the day of Tiamat Allah said to me, would you want to go to Jana Abdullah or what would you want to meet this man first and then go to Jenna, my passion to meet him was of such a caliber that I was prepared to put my whole in my entry into gender on hole momentarily, that Allah first I would meet this man and then go to genda

00:03:22--> 00:03:51

when you're hungry, you don't want to do anything but it when you tie it, you don't want to do anything but sleep. When you have a call of nature, you want to do nothing but get to a washroom when a lawmakers amongst those that would be granted entry into genda. Can you imagine the excitement, the anxiety, the jubilation that would grip the occupants on the day of the Yama to get into Jana Lowe, who used to be in at the hotel Jana ouabain and Alfa Abdullah locked onto an

00:03:53--> 00:04:22

agenda. If I was told on the day of the Yama Do you want to go straight to gender or do you want to meet this man first see him and then after that you can go I would have probably said to Allah first let me meet the men. Furthermore, I do. But then when I finally met him, I seen such a disparity and discrepancy between what I heard and what I seen that leave alone an animal, I will give more regard to the droppings of an animal than sit with this man.

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

Leave alone an animal I will value the droppings of an animal Canada or atone that droppings of an animal, I would say is more precious than sitting with this man. Simply because what I heard what I was told and what I seen was two different things. One of the great luminaries, manana Husain Ahmed madonie Rahim Allah a great intellectual giant, a great scholar. I heard from people who sat close to him. They mentioned that this man was such, the more you can close it to him, the greater your impression

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

became about him. And that was the quality actually of our Habib sallallahu wasallam to be impressed with a man at an arm's length from a distance. It's very easy. It's the whole world today which is creating images creating images. The messenger sallallahu Sallam was the only human who's most private life could be exposed in public and it only gave a fragrance there was no stench in it.

00:05:28--> 00:06:14

The most private the most intricate the most personal aspects of our beloved Habib said Allison's life could come out in the domain and in that there's guidance and you know, navigation for the oma so anyway has an anniversary Rahim Allah. Someone asked regarding Hassan pastor he said in November on sorry Rahul Kala Ania T. He's a man in his private and personal life there's harmony, waka Luca family, he is absolute. His utterances are synchronized with his actions. His utterances are synchronized, a villager who reverted to Islam, he said la del linea Allah has an opinion on me and the hula Yamamoto, beside him Allah can have hidden behavior while serving in like a like an oval

00:06:14--> 00:06:30

attorney in Lahore. The thing that impressed me about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was I never heard him utter a act of virtue, but that he executed it. And I never heard him prohibit advice, but that he was the most distant individual from him.

00:06:32--> 00:07:06

I think probably that is our biggest setback. And that is the biggest snag we face on a macro and a micro and on a macro level. As a father as a guardian as a custodian to my kids. Listen, boys, don't do this. Don't smoke. Don't use vulgar. Don't peruse porn. Don't do this. Don't do that. But my children are watching the observing. One of my scholars used to say and I really liked this and identify. He said everybody is observing your shenanigans. Some are silent out of dignity and others are silent out of desperation. But no one's blind.

00:07:08--> 00:07:53

Summer silent Well, you know what, my job will be compromised, the left club will be jeopardized. There's so many other things that would implicate It's a family issue. Why get why get yourself involved? Why get yourself why tarnish yourself why soiled yourself and others a dignified family's life he should know better what he's doing he should think for himself. But Allah is observing but even the creation of Allah is observing workone Melo fissara Allahu Allah come or pseudo Menon what's the Torah Dona Illa Allah milva Shahada for you in a Bo combi my quantum Meadow say unto them, you have to do a lot more. I'm in the Congo sudo Allah and His newbies observing and the

00:07:53--> 00:08:08

believers are also observing. The believers are also observing. So anyway, what did you say was hasn't been three in number one sorry Robo caller and yet he Toluca, He is Mr. Obama roofing Canada Ahmed an SCV

00:08:09--> 00:09:05

Mancha in Karnataka necesito Wanaka. To whom Mr. Ghani, a nanny nurse, Zani then be Murphy a de him what I need to know some of the Gina Illa. Here, I noticed that he kept himself independent from the things of people. He was never one that was the Hank Green behind the material pursuits of others. And I found people always converging around him to draw from his knowledge. So Khalid has buka Khalid Khalid, who was narrating this profile of Hassan bursary, the person said to him has buka Khalid Khalid that's adequate. k four and this is such a rich tribute of Hassan bursary. k for your window. comun Fie him Mr. ohada. How can a nation dva whose leaders are like this? How can a nation

00:09:05--> 00:09:45

lose its moral compass whose leaders are like this? You know, there's a beautiful quotation in Tempe we'll have it in and this gives us each to reflect because we live in a world where it's very easy to pass the buck on. I often say Sahaba were a group of people who used to deflect praise and embrace criticism. We deflect criticism and embrace praise. Sahaba were people they used to deflect praises. No, no, no, that's not for me. That's for him. That was a harbor. They were not out searching, hankering waiting for praises. No, no, they were happy to pass it on to others. But when criticism came they were ready to take it on. And we the direct opposite. When it comes to criticism

00:09:45--> 00:09:56

us talking to you know, he was implying you, it's everybody else. And when it comes to the praise immediately we just want to come forward. Unfortunately, that is our condition. May Allah protect us.

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

So anyway,

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

berseria Rahim Allah, this great scholar, he had the opportunity of interacting with the Sahaba via lava on whom they cannot be a greater honor. Someone asked him um Shafi Rahim have a lot regarding Ahmed Abdul Aziz, who was known as the second aroma. And regarding Sayyidina Muhammad we have a loved one who was the scribe of Revelation, the brother in law of the messenger sallallahu wasallam who was a great individual American abdulazeez or Satan ama We are the alano Cinema We are the Ilana was the brother in law of the prophets and allies and the scribe of revelation along with many more our we are working to be Allah guide more out of the olana and guide people through more comfortable

00:10:41--> 00:10:53

ye someone whom the nebula delegated the colossal task to capture revelation. You can imagine what a rich echo late this is that you trust in Him with revelation.

00:10:55--> 00:11:28

And what did say the name um, Shafi Rahim Allah said, he said, Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz and his likes, and this was a man of absolute justice. It was a second aroma, read his era, his era was a fresh breath. His era brought great calmness to the Muslim land. During his error. There were numerous occasions when you would see the wolf and the sheep dream from a common Well, this is mentioned in Tafseer, Kabir. So a shepherd came and he looked at the strange sight and like, wow, how did this happen?

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

We cannot even see mother in law and daughter in law walk together.

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

Leave a lone wolf and sheep.

00:11:38--> 00:11:52

That's because nowadays you don't even see father and son. It's a rare sight. It's a rainy site where father and son are talking or sitting together. It's just you know, business related, and that's about it. They cannot share a discussion. They cannot talk together.

00:11:55--> 00:12:17

To answer the alano when he was in the throes of death, his son was there at his bedside, the conqueror of Egypt. Dead you're in the throes of death safely alone. Can you perhaps describe what your emotions and feelings are? I don't want to be insensitive to the moment but once you pass or nobody will tell me what's death all about? Can you tell me what's your feelings?

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

najiba donea, focus on three. Oh, my son, it's like the mountains of the world. I exclusively on the chest of your father.

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

Gun ajibola dunya focus on the mo amarula. a conqueror of Egypt.

00:12:39--> 00:13:00

Then he slips into a coma. Then he comes out of that is conscious. So the son nudges him Dad? Sorry. You were saying and then you passed on? Are you back there? Can we talk you were saying like the mountains of the entire world on your bosom? What can Atlanta fishermen fit to build a bra? And I feel like I'm gasping for breath from the eye of a needle.

00:13:01--> 00:13:15

And then he said those famous couplets or two R's Allahumma inaka Martin Alfa Cena wanna hate Anna fermenter hanaa sana Illa Allahumma la COVID Fantasy Walla

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

Walla Mustang Kiran Bell, Mr. Cyril,

00:13:20--> 00:13:41

Allah you told me to do a lot of things in my life. Unfortunately, I did not oblige Allah you told me to abstain from a lot. Tragically, I did not restrain Allah my hopes are only in your mercy and nothing else. I want to be upfront. I'm not strong that I'm going to take on the angel of death. I'm not gonna take him on. I'm not strong Allah. Allahu Allah COVID

00:13:42--> 00:14:16

whatever you want to do, and I'm not innocent, that I'm gonna argue my innocence. I'm not innocent that I'm gonna argue my innocent. In this world. You argue you know, you speak you defend you lie. You do 1000 things. Yo miyashiro Humala who Jamie I actually phone Allah who come if the phone Allah Subhana Allah Allah. Allah says many of the disbelievers as they spoke lies in this world, they will try and speak a lie on the day of the AMA thinking perhaps it's gonna buy them time, they're not going to help them in any way.

00:14:18--> 00:14:47

Anyway, wait to where I'm saying we live in a world where there is no bonding. There is no time there is no togetherness. We were just speaking now, and I mentioned it recently also in some of my thoughts we live in in a world of digital consumption. Last week on one of the local radio stations, there was a discussion and I tuned in YouTube records 100 billion hours of viewing daily.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

What's next staggering facts are that figures 100 billion hours of viewing daily. Where is the oma Stein gone?

00:15:00--> 00:15:28

As an buster, he said, I stayed with the Sahaba. And that's the focus of my dog, a doctor, a government, Ghana hadoo, whom a Shahada, Allah, Omri Minh, who Allah derani digest this profound statement. If I have to summarize the Sahaba in one statement, then who were the Sahaba they were a nation who were very possessive over time and very generous with wealth.

00:15:30--> 00:15:42

You could get any amount of money out of them. They were easy money, take it, no issues, how much you want. So how about casual when it came to money, they could give 10s of 1000s.

00:15:45--> 00:16:26

In fact, there is an amazing incident. I was just teaching it the other day. So I have a flash of it. I'll just share it with you on the occasion of butter, butter. The messenger sauces, Uncle a bust of the olana was captured. He was part of the capitals. He wasn't a Muslim at that time. And he had come with a large amount 700 gold coins, which was great value. And he was captured by the Muslims. He was apprehended, his assets were intercepted. And then he came forward and then each captive had to give a ransom to buy his freedom. So above the olana at that stage was not a Muslim. So you asked the messengers a lot in some that Listen, I gave with a lot of money and the Muslims

00:16:26--> 00:16:32

have captured me and they've also taken my money. Can't you just assume the money that they have taken from me as a ransom

00:16:34--> 00:17:17

the money that I have been apprehended I have been made a captive and the money that has been taken just take that as a ransom the visa Some said no. The time at which you were apprehended, you were intercepted. You will come in to fight against us. You are not a believer and at that stage as well. He was still not a believer. So this is booty to the Muslims. This is booty to the Muslims, you will have to give your ransom and Allah reveals a verse Yeah, you wanna be openly manaphy ad communal Astra, ala Milan woofie pudo become ialah Milan houfy pu B come about Obama's awesome say to these capitals that are in your hands and in your possession. That if you are sincere in your heart and

00:17:17--> 00:17:54

you are honest, and you have good intentions, then along will give you much more than the wealth that was taken from you. Above. Ilana said I am a living statistic of this ayah at this stage that this had happened. I was not a believer. Then I was taken as a captive. My family had to give money to get my ransom. I then accepted Islam. Allah gave me so much well so much. Well, at that time, I had lost 700 coins. Now at any given time I have minimum 20 slaves and each one's income is in excess of 20,000 theorems.

00:17:57--> 00:18:19

Anyway, coming back to the point I said has empathy describing the Sahaba that they were a group of people when it came to money, their hand was loose. They say in English My father told me a young boy says oh my son There are two types of people. They are the givers and the takers. The takers they eat better the givers they sleep better.

00:18:21--> 00:18:39

Oh my son, there are two types of people in the world. They are those that give and they are those that take by Allah I have seen with my eyes in my travels. People who have a greater ecstasy in giving than the general public have been receiving.

00:18:40--> 00:18:43

They are those individuals may Allah make us amongst them.

00:18:44--> 00:19:41

If there is a quality that is loved by Alliance generosity, Imam Shafi said, What in COSATU? Are you buka Phil Baraka was sir Raka, acuna, Zito, the scepter bissa, he couldn't even use the hip. If you regret lament, you're wrong, and you want to expedite your spiritual growth. Your safest Avenue is generosity. That's a guaranteed Avenue spend and spend, it would camouflage conceal your wrong and expedite your growth in the quarter of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Sahaba were very, very possessive. When it came to time there was a structured time table. By and large today we don't have a timetable in our life, which is a recipe for disaster. A believer has to have an active timetable,

00:19:41--> 00:20:00

and he cannot slip out of this timetable for him to be productive in this world. And in Accra, the door I recited before you is one of the teachings of Habib sallallahu sallam. Allahumma inni are also becoming Shatta Wale number. Allah I asked I divine protection from

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

My mat has been disorganized. Nowadays we have organized chaos

00:20:05--> 00:20:46

from my mat has been dis organized. A believer has to be systematic. The infidels of Makkah in the 18 jers. In surah, minnow along highlights many of the evil traits. They did this they did this they did this yield analysis there were three things which was an impediment, a hurdle and an obstacle to the growth. And if we look at this carefully microscopically, I'm afraid we are guilty of all three of them most kabiri in Ibiza me one time we do road just half an hour. The beauty of the Quran May Allah give us the love to connect with the Quran.

00:20:47--> 00:20:51

Most stuck between Abby he saw me one time, June.

00:20:52--> 00:21:42

Allah said three things kept these infidels away from truth. Number one, they were arrogant about it. Mr. kabiri. In a be he they were arrogant about it. They were haughty and proud. Now the scholars of the seed tell us that in the text of this ayah, the he there is no merger. In other words, previously in the ayah. There's nothing being discussed, to which Allah is referring. But there is consensus of the scholars of the year. It refers to the Kaaba, and the reason why it has not been preceded by any mention, because the link and the attachment and the Association and the affiliation and affinity that they had with the GABA was known regarding the person is always with

00:21:42--> 00:22:19

him. So what Who else? So you use a vague, unclear reference. You don't explicitly mention it, you implicitly hinted. But everybody knows precisely who you're talking about. And that's exactly the tone of this ayah they very proud about it. And what's the reference they were very proud about the fact that they were the custodians of the Kaaba. And they felt an A about this year, they felt arrogant about this. And may Allah save us from pride and arrogance. You know, in English, they say, and this really hits me, because it's so profound.

00:22:20--> 00:22:24

A mistake, which makes you humble is better than a virtue which makes you arrogant.

00:22:26--> 00:23:06

A mistake which makes you humble. We're not condoning the mistake. Let me qualify my statements. We're not condoning the wrong, but it makes you humble. There is an incident in Babel originally in Babel large in Tempelhof in him. Regarding one of the pious predecessors, he said, and a bita Nah, Emma was behind idema. If I spent the night sleeping, and I don't engage in nocturnal prayer, and we're not talking about fudger prayer, we're talking about optional prayer. And I get up in the morning reap regretting this, this is more dear to me than spend the entire night in about it and get up conceited and elated and inflated that I'm better than others.

00:23:08--> 00:23:32

It's such a sensitive thing my brothers, it's so sensitive. I always say and I'll repeat this if there's three things, which I have advocated in all my thoughts, and if anybody can, can ever have any memory of me Let it be these three things. One is give charity daily. Number two, value your parents lovingly and sincerely, whether alive or diseased. And number three don't judge any person.

00:23:34--> 00:23:49

I love by this and I die by this year, give charity daily value your parents because that is the closest gateway to agenda. Your mommy's paradise Your dad is the door to paradise. And number three, don't be judgmental on any person.

00:23:52--> 00:24:18

Abhi Tina, Emma was banner deema if I spent the entire night sleeping and I get up Oh man, I regret it's better than spending the night in Nevada and getting up with a condescending eye on others. Well, you wasted your night What good is there in what you did? So Allah said three things kept them away from truth. They were arrogant on their virtuous actions.

00:24:20--> 00:24:59

So it was the day of Juma Satan idea of the alarm was at the member, Satan, a buzzer the alarm was there and a third Sahabi and they started in numerating their own accolades advanced Rolando said that, well, I have the privilege that I am the custodian of the Kaaba and I give water to the pilgrims. And somebody else said, Well, I have this access to the Kaaba and said knowledge of the Alanna said, I don't really identify with what you people are saying all I know is I accepted Islam. I do what I was told to do. And I have participated in campaigns with the messenger sallallahu Sallam and there is a

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

Have an argument and a back and forward altercation regarding which action is more superior than the other said now Homer came close he said leave this it's Juma time after Juma will ask the messenger sallallahu wasallam and that was the privileged Sahaba head and then there will be over last a lot in some game and the Juma Salah was performed, and in the verses were revealed, a general tone sakarya talhah Giovanni Martel masjidul harami. Carmen Mandeville he will do Mill City wotja fees epi La La is the owner in de la laguna young didn't call my buddy mean alladhina amanu 100 euro watch on how to be unworldly him and fusi him feasibility of amo Dara jetten de la, What will a

00:25:46--> 00:26:28

woman for his own Have you equated? Have you equated given water to the pilgrims and establishing the sacred house to the young man who accepted a man and spent his health and wealth in participating in the campaigns with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. They cannot be equally as the winner in the law the action of it surpasses the actions of others. The point that I'm saying is that the co founder of MacArthur three things they were elegant on what they did. We do little we speak about it and we destroy what we have. May Allah protect us? May Allah grant us humanity I often say brothers and I'll say it again. Do one thing in your life and May Allah give it to me the

00:26:28--> 00:26:52

ability into you. So secret that you don't whisper it to your partner. You don't because when we do some good action, little wine required after a little while there is this itch within us I need to tell my wife, I need to inform this one here. I need to tell this person here. We won't keep anyone abreast with all our wrongs. But we very quick you know what in case somebody comes in, give you a receipt just accepted some donation I gave a few years ago.

00:26:55--> 00:27:44

It's some donation A few years ago, do one action secretly in the dead of night, when nobody knows it, nothing, nothing, nothing, just that absolute action. Hopefully that would secure our abode on the day of the AMA. So that was the first evil trade most stackability they were proud on the association to the Kaaba. The second thing Allah said some Iran, some Iran in Arabic summarize literally means a moonless night. And look at the teachings of the prophets Allah ism. So it was customary amongst the Arabs when it was moonlit night, they would sit outside and they would just chit chat, they would just sit and discuss and they would just kill time. Last year I was in Sydney

00:27:44--> 00:28:21

for a program. And then after the program that took us out to eat and after we ate we it was in the CBD. So we were passing through town. And we passed by this place which has become a common thing nowadays where people are sitting congregating at a cafe and having shisha and indulgent and I said hundreds of Muslim youth you could see from the features and the appearance. And Allah be my witness the pain that gripped my heart, I guess it's happening everywhere, but I never had the exposure to it. Because often in our own homes, environments that those late hours you're not outside, but when you're traveling the dynamics and the demographics change location, travel, airport, hotel, etc. And

00:28:21--> 00:28:36

you when you get exposure to a thing, the pain is different when you use of it and you get exposure. When say now musasa was at Mount tour, and he heard that his nation was worshipping the calf. It enraged him but when he came there and he literally seen it what I'll call alpha,

00:28:37--> 00:28:50

CFE le if the Torah down he grew up his brother Harun, and he dragged him and he said, like heroin what's this all happening in my absence? And how don't pacify him and said relax my brother Kashi to Interpol of Iraq the bane of any ILA when

00:28:52--> 00:29:01

I was trying to stop them but they wouldn't they wouldn't you know, abandon abandon it and I feel that perhaps it results in dividing Bani Israel which I chose not to do.

00:29:02--> 00:29:47

So when you see it, the pain is much more you receive a call at home you know, this is what's happening at the office come home. So one is you disturbed you alarmed you appalled by the news. When you get home and you see it's a different thing altogether the pain so to see the youth, killing time, burning money destroying resources, unfortunately is the most painful it is the most painful thing to the eye. So they would set the Arabs would sit for hours and hours and just sit and talk and pastime and how often this has become the norm my brother, we have barbecue night, a Brian night, a social night. It's no longer we have in a woody must spend the have lunch with us spend the

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

afternoon with us spend the day with us. And then inevitably, the third thing that happens it ties up Sameera is to sit in and chit chat in hence the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said last Sunday.

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

morata back lorisha or look at the words have absolutely no social discussions post Alicia, no sleeping three Orisha no social discussions post a Sha, one Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if the world can, can internalize this and can embrace this, I promise the world out there will be much more productive The next morning, people will not be so lame, lethargic and non active. But this is the sad reality that he just runs into the late hours in the morning is a lazy morning and a lazy start. And then thank god it's Friday and that's that's the way life has become. So what happens with these to sit and kill hours and hours and speed? And in that discussion was the third

00:30:47--> 00:31:12

inevitable thing that we do rune tanjirou means they used to blurt nonsense. They used to blurt nonsense. When you sit in and you chat in and it's men alone, a woman alone and you're going to be making a budget talking Zika what what's the inevitable discussions? I don't need to spell it out. I don't need to spell it out. Right the Mana 15 we're going with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the book.

00:31:14--> 00:31:33

Some of them decline some participated, some made lame excuses, or more as their own I mean Allah Allah zanella waka de la de la casa boo long hawara sola. So you sleep Latina Casa Roman nomads nomada boon any

00:31:34--> 00:32:00

zerona Amina laub some of the villages they came to make excuses work our identity in a credible law and those who deny the law they they didn't even bother to come and extend an apology not to say that the munaf 18 who extended apologies were genuine because they came and said no we cannot join you but really we wanted to participate. And Allah said that if they really wanted to participate and do

00:32:01--> 00:32:18

what I can carry Hello on behalf of them. If they really wanted to do the act, they would have started some preparation but tell them it's not like they didn't participate a lot despise their participation so Allah denying them participation

00:32:19--> 00:32:33

Well, I can carry it alone because I'm home when I'm gonna fit they used to sit in the gathering and then they say okay, well your argument is the profits are some say no. Okay, sneak sneak some sort of food then they would leave. Allah said you didn't leave we got rid of you.

00:32:35--> 00:33:05

You didn't leave we got rid of you. Yet the cell aluna mean commonly Wada they will take shelter from the backs of each other's and sneak out sort of fun loku boon Allah diverted the heart away Allah block the heart Allah seal the heart, Allah Banta May Allah protect us. There are some actions when you perpetrated apart from the sin. It's the cause of hypocrisy enter in your heart and blocking virtue for the rest of your life.

00:33:06--> 00:33:42

Sometimes when a son is disrespectful to his parent, one is that wrong, but that disrespect becomes an impediment for future growth and prosperity for our company one nifa can for copper one nifa confy cannubi him then we allowed hypocrisy to permeate the hearts Illa Yo, Miguel toner who told the day they need a lot. So am I right under this idea. There are some evil actions, that the benefits or the harm of the evil is not limited to that advice. But it goes way beyond it goes way beyond

00:33:48--> 00:33:48


00:33:50--> 00:34:03

Someone as a teen joins and as they were going, they started talking. So while they were started talking now vcli Some said that Allah will give us victory in the book. So this Manasa Tino started talking now you have in the social discussion and you chat in

00:34:04--> 00:34:47

this prophet now also Billa in a mockery in a condescending is dreaming, he's dreaming that he's going to conquer, you know, the booth and he's gonna return victorious. One remark second remark, some of these Sahaba rosabella reference of these people, they're quite obese, their bellies are protruding they're quite big in size, making these nasty comments and remarks about the features and the disposition and the you know structures etc. Once the hobby heard this, he intercepted he said only Viola these people are making remarks like this. Yeah, they do dreaming you fantasizing and then they're mocking it This one's body and that one's image.

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

You know, one day nobody says I'll come back to this incident one day, nobody realized until up the ladder to climb on a tree and just break off a twig as a miswak says up the ladder.

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

Minnesota Illinois was climbing on and he got on and he was he was plucking off the twig. His Shin got exposed of his foot. Now his foot was very lean and very frail. So some people, inadvertently unintentionally they just had a bit of a chuckle.

00:35:19--> 00:35:27

So nobody says come set. What's the last about? They said no min dip but these are t we seen his legs are so thin.

00:35:28--> 00:35:50

Nobody said it was seldom said we'll let the Neff c be a D I swear by a line. There's no authentic IDs. I swear by airlines control is my life. The leg of Abdullah might be thin, weak and frail. But this will have more muscle clout and weight on the scale of good deeds on the day of damage and mount or hoods.

00:35:53--> 00:36:35

And on the other hand, you could be pumping iron my brother, and you could be you know what burning calories and you could have all the effects together. And you could have the biceps but on the day of Tiamat it carries no weight, no strength. Like allama Shri Rama osmani writes and I marvel at this analogy of ease. He says the growth that comes to your wealth through haraam is like obesity setting into your wealth. That is not healthy expansion. That is obesity that's fatness in your wealth. So the money person is eating his burgers and fries and indulgent and he's really growing and you say this guy must be strong. No, no, no, no, no, no, that expansion is more of a liability

00:36:35--> 00:36:42

than an acid leave alone helping anyone else he cannot carry himself he's a risk to himself.

00:36:43--> 00:37:22

So when your money is growing through harm that's not healthy expansion that's obesity expanding through the naked eye through the naive eye through the foolish I you would say that's a healthy man. That's a huge man that's a big man. But hang on is more susceptible more vulnerable to this medical condition to that medical condition. Why because until the belly doesn't turn down and he doesn't get into into shape, he's he's exposed to 1000 challenges. So anyway, they made these remarks it was intercepted It was then passed and nobody says amount of Ebola does what they say. Nobody says some said are you people sitting and gossiping and talking these types of things? I

00:37:22--> 00:37:33

mean, let's look at some of our chat groups and our social discussions. You cannot believe how much time of the oma is burning away and the kind of things we talk in on it.

00:37:34--> 00:37:40

Whether inside the home like a colon in nama Tanana whoa Anna lab

00:37:42--> 00:37:50

D what was so Lee contenta stanzi own and when you quiz them and you engage them that lesson, are you folks talking this not?

00:37:51--> 00:38:31

Just joking, man. We're just kidding. We're just kidding. We were just in Yuma man, just having a bit of lightheartedness. So Allah says and let me sound A word of caution sometimes in our jokes, we cross the line, we trust we trans you know, we trespass the boundaries allows the question, a belay at what Assouline contestants do. So, you mock you joke you laugh You scoff at a lot at these Nabhi often people make these jokes. Those are serious things but others when we joke with a lion is never you and Allah has given our brains and animal a salami so lucky doesn't have a mother in law.

00:38:33--> 00:38:51

Are those the things you you joke about? Are those things you speak about? A biller? He was he was all he do. They mock a lot in his navy and his science, let them tell you don't come and give us your lame excuses. By the cover. You have uttered a statement of

00:38:53--> 00:39:38

a kata haka for conda is a highly manickam they claim to be believers, they wanna fit, your disbelief has become exposed after your claim of a man in one effective minicom. Nor avatar, if it can be unknown can oh my god mean, those who repent will be barred and those who persist will not be pardoned. So the point i'm saying is we got to take care of our time. And what did the Quran say three things that destroyed them number one arrogance on what they do. Number two, having social discussions. I had heard from one of my teachers regarding his stat, that he had a cutoff time of 10pm. He said he was so diligent, so religious, so meticulous, that at one time there was a jelsa

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

taking place in which great great international luminaries were present. But at that time, 10 o'clock when the clock struck, stood up, excused himself and went to bed because next day, I got to stand up and I got to be talking to my Creator. You know, this incident of Satan on Amara villano, during when Alexandria was conquered Maui,

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

In what age was the envoy? So he came into Medina and he was looking for sake. Now Marie said he's mad. They said now Omar would be resting. I'll meet with him later. So said now former slave girl observed him and said, If you come back from Alexandria, correct. You have news about the battle. Absolutely. Come to Amarna. No, I guess it's midday rest in time. I'll come later said no, no Omar will insist that you must come now are the alano. So he was brought in. And Omar was informed that when he came, he thought probably it wasn't appropriate. So he was going to stall it. So hamara the alano then took him to task for this and you said you came in, you know, we anticipating the news,

00:40:39--> 00:41:08

why didn't you come straight and tell it to me? So he said to Mr. Obama, I thought it's midday and you'd be resting and it's not appropriate to bother you at this time. And what did say it now I'm going to say my brother, what it says now Amaro Delano say, he said oh more Alia in nim de na hora de Yato Rania, what in nim to lay the yard to Neff C, for K for known de nada de m.

00:41:09--> 00:41:28

o Mahalia, if I sleep by day When will I discharge the obligation of the creation? And if I sleep by night when when I converse with my Allah, you find me time between these two duties, and I'll put my head on the pillow

00:41:31--> 00:42:11

mmm no worry. The great shuffle is scholar set Maota to jumpy Anna Farah. She, for two years I didn't consciously go to sleep. I just was moving on with you know, while setting I was overwhelmed by sleep a few hours and I slept away while setting I slept. I didn't consciously sleep for two years. Like you would say, you know what, during busy season in December, I didn't have a meal for the last 10 days. Well, are you living dead? No, what I mean is a bite in the sandwich, taking a sip, just munching on something and moving on. I didn't sit down and have a meal. You're on the runway and you're traveling for the last eight days. I didn't see what's the shower? Mmm, no, he

00:42:11--> 00:42:24

says for two years I didn't sleep is when I was overpowered and overwhelmed. That was about it. This was making time meaningful. This was the time coming out in maximum dividends.

00:42:25--> 00:42:31

So these were the three things that held the infidels of Macumba stuck between Samir and tanjirou.

00:42:33--> 00:43:16

Allah speaks about, say the nada darling Salaam and again, I emphasize the same point, the need of time, the need of discipline, the need of structure, that when it is this time, this is how it is. And we have to create this the schedule, which we need to be diligent about. Let me share with you another idea in this regard as well. Allah objects in the Quran and frowns on one of the strange practices of the pagans, the pagan Arab, they had some very peculiar practices. it's laughable when we look at it in their context, but when we look at it, and our context is not laughable, you know, that's the nature of things. When you talk of somebody else doing it, it's a joke. But when somebody

00:43:16--> 00:43:33

else talks about you, it's not such a joke. It's offensive of data to Earth money has written that once I wrote an article against backbiting. So one professor wrote to me, and he said, If backbiting is so evil, then well, there's no pleasure left in life because what's so exciting in a social gathering other than backbiting?

00:43:35--> 00:44:06

So he wrote me a strange article, and he said, I mean, I beg to differ with you. If backbiting is so evil, then really, you've taken out the essence of life. What do we do on a social get together besides gossip? So he said, no problem. That's fine. I take your point. And for a moment, I identify with your logic said now Moosa told the magicians who Alcoa and tumble pole challenge me throw what you need to throw out what am I saying he was an advocate in them to challenge they weren't going to do it. So he said, Go for it. Go for it.

00:44:08--> 00:44:41

So he said, Listen, we're telling you this weekend, we're having a get together. And we're going to be gossiping about you. You're not invited? Like No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, please don't say that. Don't say that. Now, suddenly, it has changed. The whole psychology the whole approach, the whole attitude has changed. Why? Because you will be the point of discussion. And if only we can analyze everything through that same eye, that if it's bad for me, it must be bad for others. If it's good for me, it must be good for others, then I promise you we won't have this disparity and discrepancy in society. May Allah grant us that understanding through which we look at things.

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

So anyway, I was saying to the Guardian, say you do not double darling is Salatu was Salam. The need of creating structure, discipline, and measure in everything that we do. So the enemy has had this different peculiar practices, one of the peculiar practices work

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

For months, the Quran declares as sacred. That's an established fact in the Quran from the time Allah created the heavens and the earth minha arbeiten haoran for our sacred, right, in those months you wouldn't engage in battle etc. the sanctity of these months for Allah tala Morphe and forsaken bill mercy, don't oppress yourself in these months and the months of the year by committee and wrong. So look at the irony of their logic. And this is how we temper today with things. So amongst those months were rejected. And this is what the scholars have to say they alternation used to more often happened with the month of Rajab. So if they seen the need of battle during the month of

00:45:40--> 00:45:50

Rajab, then the leader of a tribe will stand up and say, listen, we are in ledger, but there's been a crisis for better so for this year, we just going to shuffle the month we delayed Raja.

00:45:52--> 00:45:55

we fast forward into next month and we just put in this month on all

00:45:57--> 00:46:13

like, Listen, I'm busy this week. So we're going to be having Juma Friday on Sunday and Sunday we'll just bring it to go forward. So this was the kind of thing they used to do where they used to rotate months in nomina. See ozada nothing in Arabic needs to delay that is why you call credit also known as si

00:46:14--> 00:46:58

se na soleimani salaam stick Allah says minsiter it is an SME Allah through which you move dirt and you clear out the way NASA to move things in a manner CE o postponement. In a madness he was the one Filippo Frey your bolo begun levena cafaro you Hello now Mama. Well, you had Ramona who Amma one year it's sacred one year is not sacred. So this was one of the peculiar practices. Another peculiar practice and that brings me to the aspect of preservation of time is when they used to harvest crops, then they had this very distorted distribution. They used to say this crops belongs to Allah, so they would help the wayfarer. They would help the widow they would help the orphan and these

00:46:58--> 00:47:44

crops here belongs to our gods and our diabetes. So they would give it to the worshipers in the church in the place of worship, and they would also offer it a sacrifice to the dieties this is what the Quran speaks about that when they used to harvest this is how they used to rotate and they used to distribute, which itself was a crime because everything belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala for call ohada Leela Ibiza mayhem waha Dolly Shaka inna Formica and Alicia Raka him Fela, Yasuo illallah wa Malecon La La Jolla, Sulu Ilan Shoraka him but it gets even more ugly and more more strange that Allah says sometimes when they used to harvest the crops and the crops and the harvest and the fruit

00:47:44--> 00:48:07

and the produce were all gathered in one place so the share of allow went in their inverted commas because everything belongs to Allah but what they had allotted as the share of Allah God mix with the share of the gods they used to say it's fine Allah don't really need allies easygoing allies independent allies self sufficient so if we cut short here there's no implications

00:48:09--> 00:48:51

but if the scenario was reversed and the share of the gods got mixed with the share of Allah they were very quick to separate it No, no no no a policeman does Africa load is gonna come this area Yeah, please a 50 grams Can you just push it this idea that you know we balanced the heck out? Saw ama yeah comun evil indeed with the decisions they made. Official visa parameter law right. so amazingly, he says, we read this ayah and we move on. We choco we love we mock, we snap and we move on. But let's direct the focus to us. We are no different. So you we set a timetable for myself in the morning. I'm going to read so much still out. The night before he retired to bed. I go read my

00:48:51--> 00:49:11

acid metabolic in the morning, I got to go to the gym. I got to do this half an hour, I got to update myself with the news bulletins. Then I got to see the score. Then I had visitors coming home and my whole pattern got disrupted who bears the brunt of the disruption. Does my German go does my news bulletin go? Or does my yacine and my tabara go

00:49:14--> 00:49:53

and if perchance it took strain the next day I'm in the gym two hours more why last yesterday I lost out but yesterday you didn't read lies came by the intention was there brother? The intention was that you were to look at an intention Brother, you don't understand it. You don't understand. You can ask Allah Allah will verify this. Am I right? One? Correct. Once the intention was there, right visit escape visit is the act of ibaadat. Also, if you look at it, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, amazing, phenomenal lights. Now we're running on 10 different opinions and verdicts. And we run in with a very broad aspect of things. So we found we moan we groan we laugh we scoff at the pagan Arab in his

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

deviation, that how he was quick to separate but when it comes to us and our structure and if we fall

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

Short in our commitment that daily I'm going to do this and we fall short. Allah subhanho wa Taala has a very good retirement package. I always say nobody gives you a better retirement package than Allah is our Marina labdoo OSA fara cootie Bella who miss Lou Makana, Yamato, sushi and multiman. Like all these packages, when it's time for them to pay out, there's so many claws, there's so many conditions. There's so much red tape, there's bureaucracy, this protocol there's so much Allah says when a servant becomes ill or he embarks on a journey we record for him every action he performed while he was really unhealthy, or we capture for him every action he did while he was at home. When

00:50:41--> 00:50:57

you're in Germany and now the the travel doesn't want it doesn't allow for it. Immediately, whatever you did, but look at us how we unfortunately lose the plot. So one two incidents and we try to close the incident of Satan or doubt Allah is Salatu was Salam. O

00:50:59--> 00:51:20

Allah had blessed him with in Kingdom and abroad he was the first nebby who was a king as well. And what did Allah give him advice in the Quran? We asked for advice. Quick advice. simple, basic, straightforward. What did Allah say Jada will do in general naka de fatten fill up vacuum by Nancy bill, ha

00:51:21--> 00:51:26

ha ha. That when you execute your verdict, don't follow your base desire.

00:51:28--> 00:51:35

Today, unfortunately, we've lost that it's my ego what they say drop the E and you will go.

00:51:36--> 00:51:47

But as long as you hold on to that ego, you don't move. Just a quick thought in the 17 Jews in Surah ambia. There's a detailed incident regarding two people.

00:51:48--> 00:51:50

One was the shepherd and one had a farm.

00:51:51--> 00:52:05

The shepherd had left his flock so the flock pastured into the adjacent farm and destroyed the crops. nefa in Arabic means a flock of sheep without a shepherd. And it simplifies the logic a class of students without the teacher

00:52:06--> 00:52:17

you can imagine the havoc that's gonna happen they're not even what the teacher you don't say nowadays, you know, what's it before it's silence? You know what? children are learning, not like silence, some students are sleeping, respect them.

00:52:19--> 00:53:02

As classroom manners now, please, please silence respect this. There are some students that are sleeping, please just just respect them. That's that's classroom mannerism. Now, the demographics have changed, we're dealing with a very, very different situation today, may Allah guide and protect our youth, really, we are in in very, very trying times. Anyway, long story short, so the shepherd, his flock had destroyed the farm adjacent farm, the case was presented to the restaurant, he analyzed the entire situation. And when he did the maths and the calculation, the harm that was caused by the flock of sheep to the adjacent farm, balanced out to the value of the flock of sheep.

00:53:03--> 00:53:33

So the harm that was done to the adjacent farmers crops, his entire crops and how this was destroyed, the value the harm that he incurred, was in proportion to the value of the sheep. So he said to the shepherd, listen, it's your negligence, if a dog is roaming and you don't have a leash and you bite someone, you're going to hold the owner responsible. So you're going to be liable and responsible because you will not taking care of your flock. So you're gonna have to take your flock and you're gonna have to give it over to this man because he has incurred loss and harm.

00:53:34--> 00:53:40

So they said, Okay, that's the verdict and they come out. But these people were driven by truth, not driven by egos.

00:53:43--> 00:53:48

dilemmas, always said obey the truth. Don't focus on who said it, focus on what has been said.

00:53:50--> 00:54:02

Don't focus on who said, We are such, even if it is a flawed decision, but if it comes from my beloved, we embrace it, and even if it's the Absolute Truth, but if it comes from my fault, we deny it.

00:54:03--> 00:54:27

So they exit from the court of Solomon as they walk in past the past when a man in a salon, the narration of jalala in the footnotes, he was 13 years of age. So he's like, you guys are from my dad. Yeah, correct. What happened? No, we had this issue. Okay. What was my dad's verdict? Yeah, your dad basically for an ounce of liberty due to my negligence, I gotta pass my flock over. Okay, perfect. That's fine. Law will lead to a more common law by tomorrow.

00:54:29--> 00:54:59

I'm just saying if I was made to look into this case, and pronounce a verdicchio, my view would be respectfully very different from that of my venerable dead. I would look at an option that could minimize the harm that was caused to the shepherd because this way he's lost toto. This man has lost his crops now. But in the years to come, you can irrigate and farm and plow and get his crops and he's got a whole flock of sheep. So the message was taken back to say that I would have a solemn vow that a Salaam summoned his son

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

hackle obovata you will know Booyah. Oh my son through the medium of prophethood and father would come in I want to talk to you.

00:55:09--> 00:55:17

Sometimes you tell us a living You don't know anything. And after a while you realize you don't know it, you know? But now who's gonna call the lady back now?

00:55:18--> 00:55:59

Yeah, what did you tell your son to do? I'm going now you first tell him you know you boys you think and sometimes these youngsters also they push their luck too much. We need to strike the balance. Some youth if they he basically explained to his father a device or a gadget. He's like I'm one notch above my dad. I'm one notch you bond into technology, so you abreast with it. That doesn't give you an upper hand over your father. If you need to explain to him you do it with absolute respect. A Brian Murray Strom is known as the father of prophets. His father is known as the father of polytheists Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam is inviting his father to mono theism. He's one of the novelist

00:55:59--> 00:56:43

of Atlas creation, the father being a sinful individual and a polytheist. The tone of the father is harsh and obstinate. The tone of Ibrahim is polite and gentle. But the Khadija an emotional animal and Mia Attica for any of you take us up on Serbia, yeah, Bettina, Taka booty shaytaan you're in need of a cerca de bon minhaj Oh, my beloved dead, you my father. But listen, what you're doing is not right. Clearly that that's not how you do things, that I'm just worried if you're going to carry on like this, Alice Azov is going to come. I have a flash of a young man who once came to me and he cried in my house, and I won't forget that. He said, you know, Allah changed my life and my whole

00:56:43--> 00:56:44


00:56:45--> 00:57:20

And I came out in the path of Allah. And I had a complete reformation to myself, my life changed. I went out, change brought modesty into my life in my house. And the first thing I realized that my dad is dealing in interest. And I said, Listen, this is not compatible, because now my outlook of life has changed. So I set my father down and I said, Dad, you know what, this is a government go from your back off. There's only investment is for you. There's only empires for you. What do you mean, we can run it like this? Okay, realize is not accepting time pass. I came back to my citizen dead. This is bothering me. It's eating me up. No, no, you mad man. This is for my grandchildren.

00:57:21--> 00:57:56

It bothered me again. After a few days, I came back I said, Dad, listen, I'm going to have to tell you, I want to relinquish my rights. And I want to exit the family business. And I admire this young man, and I will become an employee in the business. So I'm not liable for the wrongs of the business, because I'm no longer a partner and I'm no longer an owner. An employee is not liable for the wrongs. So I'm relinquishing whatever you want to give me and this is not a proposal. This is respectfully I am informing you because I cannot be eating haram and nourishing my children with Haram. And he cried, and he said, I couldn't believe that I was in that same condition. I was in

00:57:56--> 00:58:16

that same condition and sometimes brothers, we need little bit patience. Sometimes we need a little bit of patience. When we are in, caught up in sin and vise those around us have patience with us. And we come out of it and when we come out of it, we lack the maturity to display the patience that was displayed with us for us to come out of our own

00:58:18--> 00:58:30

gadalla cocoon to mingle min Tableau summon Allahu Allah a comfortable Yeah, no. There's one Tafseer of this. If this was your condition before my Sahaba this was your condition. Oh, before my Sahaba

00:58:31--> 00:59:06

there was a youngster who was having some issues in the marriage. Allah gave him he died, he changed his wife wasn't changing so positively. So they came home. I said to him say brother, Allah gave you he died. That's excellent. When you got married to your wife, you consciously knew the woman you were reading? Absolutely. Right. Allah made it possible for you to make the drastic change, which is awesome, brilliant, and you know, rewarding. She hasn't yet taken the bold step. It's not that she fell back on her promise. This is how you wedded her. This is you consciously married her like this year, you went for new, you know, you went for a venue. Now you want to be automatic.

00:59:07--> 00:59:48

I'm just using a loose phrase here. So you need patience. You need tolerance, you need forbearance. And sometimes unfortunately, we lose it Subhan Allah Look, it's a eterna de la Salam. He calls his son, oh, my son, tell me what's the story that I would have told the shepherd that he takes his flock and he gives it to the farmer not permanently, momentarily. interferer will have been in our Sufi when a slayer that you can draw, you know milk, the gold steak, the mode you can use the further you can use the skin, anything that is born now what procreation you can have, in the interim as the shepherd you work on the fields now plow irrigate plan. When you bring the crops back

00:59:48--> 00:59:52

to where it was, then you return his farm to him and he returns your flock to you.

00:59:54--> 01:00:00

In this way, we minimize and this man's got something to keep him going for the moment and ultimately he gets

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

As far back as alpha omaka at Abuja Oh my son, I salute what you say, oh my son, I salute what you say I retract I revoke for fun hum Nana Suleiman phenomena Suleiman McMullen Tina hochma ye Ma. Allah says we, we inspired the correct Vedic on the bosom of Solomon and a Salaam, but respectively father and son were blessed with with great knowledge. While the Buddha was with a man and a llama, we bless them and endowed them both with knowledge. So coming back to the point here and I want to mention this and round up on the aspect of again of structure, talking of time in between we flavoring it with some other things, but the key focus is how we need to have a timetable and active

01:00:46--> 01:01:03

timetable. That's it. This is the time I sleep This is the time my time for my Dean. I want evening Abdullah describing the Sahaba said Elijah Luna kanaya Luna dunia ma Fabiola and sloty him one aluna Lydon, Mia

01:01:06--> 01:01:47

Antonia calm, big difference between us and the Sahaba they channel they key resources to the preservation of Acura and if there was an overflow, they invested it in this world, you people channel everything you as in US channel everything in this world and if anything remains which is unlikely, then it gets directed to Arthur. So our core and key investment portfolio is this world. And if there is little extra time on Sundays or because the shelves got to be close to them probably will have a bigger attendance. Because why our key essence and our key investments is in the things of this world while sahabas logic was the direct opposite was the direct opposite.

01:01:49--> 01:01:59

So anyway, loudly Salaam just just reflect over this brothers. He used to consciously routinely camouflage himself and go amongst the people and then ask them brother You know, I would

01:02:01--> 01:02:37

say he would disguise himself people heard about the name but often you don't know this is the person himself say I know that what's your opinion now is a good man is a prophet is the is the ruler is awesome person. Lovely, lovely. What's your opinion? Completely camouflage disguised? And he wanted to know this is also mentioned about Imam Malik Emma Malik used to be very particular about the perceptions of people, not perception of people like we have it, or functions got to be elaborate, because what will people say? You bet in favor to a janazah? Or you seen off a girl? a bride? What would people say? What would people say this has eaten up our society the other day on

01:02:37--> 01:03:18

the radio dimension something how many a marriages are suffering a blow and they are on the verge of being dissolved and probably in reality, it's been dissolved. But you just supposedly together because society must know the marriage broke. I mean, what a foolish way of living life. The Quran says keep your spouse with respect to release it with dignity. But if it's not happening, and you have to call it a day you have to dissolve it with respect, but purely precisely exclusively because of the norms of society, the standards of society. It's a taboo in society. It's a no go in society. It's a stigma in society because of that you're hanging on. So why hang on into something because of

01:03:18--> 01:03:43

perception and notion. So not on that note of perception and notion, but rather on the note that how I can better myself. Someone came to Hakeem Alomar Rahim, Allah, the great intellectual giant, and said, I must be honest and candid. I've been backbiting about you, Will you forgive me? He said, I'll forgive you provided you disclose what you were backbiting because as much as it's a sin for you to backbite I could be guilty of what you said. So if you don't tell me when will I reform

01:03:45--> 01:04:16

so it's a separate thing that even if I'm guilty, it's wrong for you to discuss it. Well, you know, literally home as a till no matter what will be to the one who speaks of in on their face and behind their back. Some of us have the notion that we can legitimize our backbiting by pronouncing that evil on the man's face. That's not legitimizing it that's making a different wrong. No, not only making it but I'll tell him on his face, I'm not shy. Tell them in straight. The Quran says you are now double wicked

01:04:17--> 01:04:20

Why are you lonely equally home as a teen nomads

01:04:21--> 01:04:26

Tell me so to tell a man on his face womanizer to tell him behind his back

01:04:27--> 01:04:34

so that doesn't make it right you telling the man on his face or telling him behind his back to speak evil of people is not the thing that needs to be done

01:04:38--> 01:04:57

so anyway, that was the reason was walking long story short, and then he's Allah sends an angel and his camouflage. And now it doesn't recognize this the angel and the angel knows this is totally Salaam. And now there is sometimes Angel brother You know that would Yeah, of course. I know. That would be what's your take on town? That was a good man. That was a good man. But any, any setbacks, any you know what

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


01:05:00--> 01:05:33

weakness. Yeah, this is one thing is drawing some funds from the National Treasury. If you could have some independent income, I guess it would just give him an edge it would just give him that much of a, you know, excellent see to his personality. He was totally justified because I believe I can draw from the National Treasury. And you can read about our histories. It normally is on the pulpit and everybody gathers in the masjid. He said, Listen, folks, I am sick. And I've been diagnosed with the condition and the physicians have prescribed honey, and there is some honey in the National Treasury. I've assembled you because I need your collective consent if I can have one

01:05:33--> 01:05:34

teaspoon honey.

01:05:36--> 01:05:38

No, man, oh, man, you're being too sweet. No,

01:05:39--> 01:06:17

you've really been sweet. So harmala Can you imagine that, beyond comprehension, beyond comprehension, the lights that is beyond our imagination, but when they were out to learn, so when they were told they embraced it, so when you heard this, that I appreciate it, and then you may not at all inspire me with something that I can generate my own revenue. And that's the teachings of Islam that a person you know, generates his own income and he has his own wealth. mantella but dunya Allah, Allah and his staff are synonymous Allah Subhana Allah only taught to fun Allah Jerry Botha will love will Yeoman Yamato but who can accommodate comedy later till bedri our faith was never a

01:06:17--> 01:06:37

selfish religion. The day we became selfish, that is the day we lost our Deen and our aim on our entire Islam revolves around a selfless nature. And as soon as we become private and personal and exclusive and selfish, we've lost the essence of our faith. Islam was all about togetherness.

01:06:39--> 01:06:45

I mean, Ionian Do you mean he's not a genuine believer who want to be alive is eating and his neighbor's belly is hungry.

01:06:47--> 01:06:55

He's not a genuine owner. Well, our food is running short land looking tough. 34 I think you feel like eating individually. He didn't say what say what you cook in?

01:06:57--> 01:07:04

Which which pot you got? No, no, no, he hasn't said I think you eating individually not eating together. You see the food would be adequate.

01:07:05--> 01:07:10

The food would be adequate. Then the sahabas internal takeaways of another level.

01:07:11--> 01:07:39

The blind Sahabi doesn't want to eat with the sighted because the blind feels I will eat more than others because I cannot see the sighted doesn't want to eat with the blind he says because the blind won't see he eat less. I'll eat more. The cripples hubby doesn't want to eat in a joint get together. He says because occupying more plays because I'm crippled I need to stretch my leg. The April Sahabi doesn't want to pull resources and eat with a cripple. Is it because the cripple will come late by the time after food is finish?

01:07:40--> 01:07:47

Allah revealed the verse ladies. Maharaja Allah Allah Allah Allah. Allah Allah Allah.

01:07:48--> 01:07:54

Allah Allah and forsaken Kudo min bu t con Oh booty Arba econ. oboe.

There's no harm in subjecting yourself to such stringent rules. Be relaxed and easy. Look at their level of taqwa. Each one concerned of the next yo he says All right, that guy used to looking for a place by the time we wipe out brother You come late. You lose you use you snooze, you snooze, you lose. Nobody told you to come late. We gave you the address. We told you what time etc now. So hon Allah what a difference in life just look at their life and look at our life. What a difference. We were never selfish the

01:08:42--> 01:09:09

day we became selfish. Imagine if the dad passes on and the children sit down and each one enters the meeting of winding up the state with the primary desire that my brothers and my siblings must get more. Imagine walking into that meeting with that mindset. That man's soul in his grave will be tranquilize that no yacine and Tabarak will bring it that joy

01:09:12--> 01:09:35

that man's soul in his grave will be with Brighton and will be full of joy and happiness but you'll be walking on we don't pay brother asked me my dad passed away please perform the salary performed the amygdala forgiving him elevate him I barely said parameter gamma human Mashallah you're making leverage draws but a man owes me big time. Okay

01:09:37--> 01:09:47

Yeah, he owes me big time. Whoo that's man yeah. Okay brother. No problem. I just made a major general don't don't don't attack the man. We don't attack the messenger. But there's the sun.

01:09:48--> 01:10:00

In Alyssa bill, Happy makalah in Lusaka will Happy makalah the one who has arrived. He has a voice. The one who's old. He has a leg to stand on. It might be

01:10:00--> 01:10:42

insensitive. It might be brutal. It might be crude it might be harsh, but in principle you justified because you're going to die in a way where your ducks in a row your accounts are clean and cleared. Everything needs to be transparent. That's how you leave man, Berta wahoo our very own mineral keep very well Hulu live when you die in three of three minor he said direct gentleness direct to Jenna Mombasa man moto burrito minal kebari free from pride, DC and dead straight to Jenna. We not dine guilty or one we don't guilty of all three. Allah protect us, Allah protect us. So anyway, he makes blood to Allah and then Allah inspires him with the skill of making armor. Now when Allah inspires

01:10:42--> 01:11:11

him with this skill, Allah doesn't just say okay, make armor. Allah gives him certain benefits miracles what ln Allah will Howdy, we have softened the steel for him. So for the elderly, some steel was like how for us wax is simple, easy could turn it, you know, folded bended. It was totally flexible. This is how Allah subhanaw taala had made it easy for the elderly salat wa salam. Then Allah goes on to say and we come to the point of a schedule, a program a schedule. I gotta have this in order.

01:11:12--> 01:11:35

Sunday is the lazy start. We become non productive, we lose our whole focus. The Prophet Saracen is made to offer the morning of the woman not the night of the oma, what you can achieve in the morning you cannot achieve in the latter part of the day, because the morning is carrying the plans of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Allahumma barik Luma TV Boku de la Allahumma barik latifi buku de la

01:11:36--> 01:11:47

when a person goes to the masjid in the morning and the evening, Abdullah hula, hula, Hakuna Matata or Aha, Allah prepares, prepares and extends his hospitality.

01:11:48--> 01:11:51

That is the time that a beaver is up inactive.

01:11:54--> 01:11:58

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says any amount of savvy lot, prepare armor.

01:12:00--> 01:12:40

And yet again, we need to refute a myth. There is a myth out there that Islam is averse to professionalism. And that's also a myth, and it's unfounded and it's not established in Islam. Islam doesn't say that because it's this word, you must just do it anyhow. And you don't have to worry How you doing things? No, no, Islam says you must be principle. Two things to be thorough, do it proper, don't attach your heart to it. Don't attach your heart to it. But if you study the rule of Sangeeta now, he was the man who created Islamic infrastructure. He was the man who built barracks. He was the man who built bridges. He was the man who duck canals. He was the man who established an

01:12:40--> 01:13:21

employed system for Allah and her father and Athenian. He was the man who put up massagin he was the man who promoted active literacy at the time in the era of the only 16 literate people said now Homer was one of those literate people. He promoted active literacy. So read the reign of Amara, the olana, you'd be amazed by how much rich contribution he made to Islamic infrastructure. And all this credit goes to say na Amara Yolanda, which we seldom read about. He had great he was he had a very innovative mind and a very innovative mind. So constantly trying to innovate and move things in. But there was no attachment to it. That's the key a lot although there is some big pharma to third do it

01:13:21--> 01:13:46

with precision, synchronize the links, synchronize the links, what God did Rufus, Sir serata in Arabic means to weave, but there has two meanings and that's the one that I want to speak on. One could mean synchronize. So let there be realism. Let there be pattern. Let them not be inconsistency. Let there be pattern in it. Allah speaks about how Allah created the heavens.

01:13:47--> 01:14:07

Allah says look at the skies for General basora corradini and Talib illogical bizarre. Only Allah can make that statement only a lot. Sometimes you look at something it's a cursory glance I was it No, absolutely impressive. Look again, when you look again, then you realize the flaws and the mistakes. Now you don't want to depress them. No, no, this is amazing.

01:14:09--> 01:14:25

Then you point out a mistake you point out the mistake because you don't want to you just want to keep the man happy. Allah says look at my creation, not once not twice, but repeatedly. And Allah throws out a challenge. Your gaze will return defeated, because my creation is flawless.

01:14:26--> 01:14:42

matara, minhag Mataram in Mathura been tougher woods, matara, the Hulk man even tougher with a adamantane so you will not spot inconsistency in anything that I create.

01:14:45--> 01:14:49

If you look at just the color combination that Allah has created

01:14:52--> 01:14:56

one masala can fill out the elephant and one oh

01:14:58--> 01:15:00

look at the trees. Look at the

01:15:00--> 01:15:40

throat, you score the MA NY. Allah says it's one land, it's one son. But just look at the variety in everything. You look at the marine world. You look at the marine world as we enjoy animals in the zoo and you enjoy animals in the park. It's two different things. When you were in the Caribbean, we went to in the submarine to three times, and you go deep down 150 meters deep into the water. And then you move deep into the ocean and you see the schools of fish and you see the marine world and you see the exotic fish and you see the color combination one ma Allah can fill out the machteld even Alalu and you only Marvels sometimes you look at these birds and you see the color you look at

01:15:40--> 01:15:44

flowers you look at kalama talking of species and diversity this color combination.

01:15:46--> 01:16:30

So in everything of Allah this beauty Allah says now when you put this armor, then synchronize the links synchronize that's one before the second of series work cut deal with this, the fix a time for this doubt you asked us for a skill so that you can have financial independence. We inspired you with a skill both this year design this year make this year what I love now Whoa, son, I tell her bow silicone. However, lead does not consume all your time, cut deal, fix a time that this is the time I would be doing this and then you leave it and your other time goes into a bada. And immediately after that Allah says what am I lusardi ha, that I've given you a skill and it's there

01:16:30--> 01:17:08

to financially liberate you and make you independent, but it shouldn't be taking up the chunk of your time engaged in good actions. Not to say that though that is anomalous, not engaging in any good actions. And Allah had endowed and blessed and favored them with a lot of bounties. But in the end what did Allah subhanho wa Taala say to Tao that a Salaam in a minute mailloux Allah da boo the chakra and this is something to really reflect on if we can take this home. People say you know Allah has blessed me so much. That's good. A lot of homes you go to them have them in the lobby. This is the mercy of Allah, I normally say to the people complete Daya. Leah Bologna, screw up for

01:17:09--> 01:17:52

people stop midstream. Daya doesn't stop there. This is the grace of Allah to test me if I'm grateful I'm ungrateful. That that is it. That's the reflection correct that you attribute this to Allah. But the bounty is to test you. So what did Allah say 2018 I blessed you with this structure your time have a timetable in place some time for this. It shouldn't be consuming all your time. You do this you move away. And another very important thing we learn from the Great's of the world. When it comes to time you engage in your practice daily have virtuous actions, even if it means for a moment so that you don't interrupt pattern and rhythm. Hakeem Omar Rahim Allah who was a great

01:17:52--> 01:18:33

prolific author, who has authored no less than 1000 books, and of which compiled. He says it was my Practice daily to sit and write. If at occasionally, my teachers and my mentor came home, I would sit him entertain him, excuse myself, pick the pen and write so that I don't have a gap of two days where I lose my focus and my pattern, I would minimize my writing but keep the action active. Keep the action active the day you closed the Quran and you didn't touch it, the next day becomes more daunting. And the third day becomes more daunting. And then forget about it. The Quran becomes for the shelf and not the self as they say we lose the touch totally. So don't break the rhythm. Don't

01:18:33--> 01:19:04

let it be in, you know, have this gap and this gulf between the period What did Allah subhanaw taala say to say na, na Salam ala Malou Allah Tao the chakra are the people of doubt. Don't verbalize gratitude, executed, don't verbalize it executed. You say hi, I don't know how to make sure come to Allah. That's the easy way to say sometimes you know what, I don't know how to introduce this man, because he's so famous. One is probably individual could be so famous. But on the other end you lazy to introduce.

01:19:05--> 01:19:43

And you take shelter from his face that I don't need to introduce. I don't have to introduce because he's too famous. One is to say, you know, I don't know how to thank Allah. And it's just an excuse because you don't actively thank Allah when your allies saying the way forward to express gratitude to allies walk the talk, walk the talk. And what's the minimum you can do in walking the talk to Allah say is the minimum gratitude is you don't use the resources given to you by Allah in the disobedience of Allah. Imagine you buy yourself sign a phone, and he buys that he takes that phone and then he sends you a nasty message from the phone you bought it. Now what's going to happen to

01:19:43--> 01:20:00

you my brother, you're going to be livid. You're going to be livid you would lose your balance composure, regardless of calculated methodical, composed individual you are I mean that's an audacity that's an absolute audacity that's ludicrous to do something of that nature to take myself

01:20:00--> 01:20:42

Phone, my my acid that I've given you and have the audacity to send me a nasty message. Well that's the minimum whatever Allah has given us, we don't abuse it by using it in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah to make us amongst those people who structure our timetables, who have an active we we value and enjoy Ramadan, apart from the blessings of the month because every person enters into rhythm. Every person enters into pattern. Allah says in a salata, kanatal Mini Nikita mo Buddha with ordained prayer with fixed times this is it come that's a drop and move on. That is why the other man say left for us there are different types of Salah for us there are

01:20:42--> 01:21:20

different times you know this is far when it is winter, sometimes it's early, etc. But women are encouraged to offer their prayer. As soon as the time sets in. Across all seasons, women are offered an exalted and implored to offer their prayer. Because otherwise sometimes you really need an old time they need some accrue time. It just depends how the activities of the house and the domestic chores are carried out. So if that is the environment, as soon as the time sets in, everything can just be put on hold, and we can offer our prayer. And we center our lives around that. We sleep early. We rise early. We have a timetable. We don't compromise on our timetable. We will see meaning

01:21:20--> 01:22:01

in our day we will see Baraka in our day. We will see goodness in our day, the more Russa to a yummy Bella nada Meanwhile, our whorfin wala buka in Allah has any and then letting you have an equal Ababa mucho de la la See, ya know la Heaton Zuni. It's long couplets in which the poet is lamenting the loss of time that is just running away from me. Imam Shafi said if I summarize my entire life of studies, I can narrow it to two things your ego either you dictate to it or dictates to you either you telling yourself I'm reading Quran or then it will get you onto the paper onto a site or peruse this or it does or gossipy or just do this that's it. It's either you receiving or dictating.
