the fundamental law more or less Marlena in a woman at various bill for in Allah Allah you being seen in Cali de la de la sala comme la Marlena, we're in the hot in sada de la la viene honorable scholars, respected brothers, elders, mothers and sisters. I am overwhelmed and humbled by the warm reception and the amazing hospitality. And surely this speaks volumes about Islamic brotherhood. Last year, practically about the same time I was in Albania, and we visited a Masjid in elbasan. And it was a small sample Masjid, probably even smaller than this in its size. But I have a distinct real recollection that when we arrived there for Juma Salah, the entire Masjid stood up in our
reception. And I said in my opening talk, it is common to be excited when you return home. You know there comes a time where travel becomes the norm but returning is always exciting.
Flying is a key part of it. It's you know, it's it's it's a common thing, it's a casual thing, but coming home always has an element of happiness and joy. This is what Allah has made a home late. May Allah keep Muhammad in our homes and happiness in our homes. So it is an IT is understandable to be excited when you return in home. Or you reunited with someone who you haven't seen for many years, when the number of Allah sallallahu wasallam migrated to Medina and then say the Naja offer his cousin, the brother of Allah, the Allahu anhu, who had migrated to Abba senior, and after years from Abba senior, he came direct to Madina munawwara and he's the return or he's coming to Medina
coincided with the conquest of heyburn One Belt one fat Han kariba Amani, Makati una de la Mora Z's and hakima Allah speaks about the conquest of labor. So there was dual excitement, because haber came exclusively to those who participated in who they be prior to that, and those who did not participate in her they br they had no share in labor. So there was this great excitement in Medina that hiber was all its wealth and its amenities and its economic strength has fallen to the Muslims. And nobody's alarmism said I don't know Am I more happy over labor coming to our share or the reunion with my cousin Java? law three big Hema a shadow farahan be fat he haber ambica do me Java.
So it is understandable. But to come to a locality where probably it's your first time or it's after many years, and there's no real active bond. It can only be the Brotherhood of Islam. It can only be the bond of Islam that creates such an atmosphere of happiness enjoy. I remember the late brother Junaid Jamshed May Allah fill his grave with new ones in Canada, we were sharing platform at a common convention. And we were sharing some time together in the hotel. In fact, we want to come and flight from Dubai onwards. So while he was sitting with me, and we had some casual time together, I asked him, tell me some of your life, pre pre your information and your change. And he said,
I was once in America in Dallas. He was narrating this personally to me. And then after my show and after my performance, there was a girl who insisted on her father, that I wanted the singer to come home. It was protocol, there was bureaucracy, there was formalities, you needed to speak to the agent, and they would text you and have the 2000 US dollars just for the celebrity to come home. And he said the money exchanged hands and I oblige and we went to home. But there was no feeling there was no joy. There was no happiness. It was cold, it was withdrawn. For her it was a feather in her cap that the singer came home amongst her peers. She enjoyed recognition that her father's got it
all covered. And then he said Allah gave me diet and guidance, and I would perform a simple or a common nod in a mystery to an audience of
50 people, but the satisfaction that it gives me is beyond description.
The satisfaction that it gives me is beyond description, and really speak in the bond of Islam Allah speaks about the occupants of hell and this is just a preamble, because I just thought I would start my talk with this year, given the warm reception and the you know, excitement in the community. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What levina Manu amilo slowly hi de la new Khalifa nevsun in Busan ha la casa de jannetty woofie ha Honda dawn, Vanessa Anna Murphy sudo Rahim min hiline 30 min 30 min and har that when the dwellers of gender will enter gentlemen, lawmakers amongst them. Allah says I will flush out from the chest and they bosoms all forms of rancor dislike antagonism, hatred and
malice and discord that existent existed between each other as a result of flushing this out of them. It one and they will instantly become brothers. And hence I often say that when rancor and jealousy is flushed out of the body, then strangers become brothers. And when antagonism and discord remains within us, then brothers become strangers.
And also, I think it would be most opportune that I share a few words on the young boy who opened today's proceedings with a recitation of the Quran. This is a big eye opener for us as our honorable MC alluded, that the boy is a young boy 13 years into the fold of 13 months into the fold of Islam. That just gives us a shiver in our back that none of us have a monopoly over this Deen. None of us are anchored in this Deen are in total well known yesterday dill Coleman Huracan. And if you turn your back, Allah says I will replace you by many people. Now vnic Salatu was Salam was sitting and this verse was revealed. And then he pointed to salmaan radi Allahu anhu and salmaan was of Persian
origin. And Nabi sallallahu Sallam said loconet Dino be suraiya la la hora gentlemen, Allah far is that if Islam and faith and Diem was so high and in accessible, that it was elevated to the skies, and it was like a star, which is not easy to access people like this year, meaning from the descent, the descendants of Selma and or the Allahu anhu, they would reach out to Islam even at such remote locations.
Allah speaks about the incident, Allah speaks about the incident of the magician's in the time of Musa alayhis salaam. And this just reminds us my brothers that we cannot look at any one with a condescending eye. We cannot look at anyone, the world in which we live, everybody is going through turbulence. The other day I was at a shop buying my license disc. And it's not the best of buys because you know, they call it a grudge deal.
Like somebody said, he's got a fuel station and a petrol station. So I told him, I said, Brother, you know what, Marshall is a good friend of mines. I said you need to do away with the music. He says no, I agree with you. But in terms of business ethics and dealings, they call this a grudge deal. So I said simplify this. He said no, they believe or this is the thinking behind it. That you don't stop at the fuel station willingly reluctantly, you stop. It's like a heavy art at all. The stick is that I don't unless you call he to me enough and after we finish.
So you need to like kind of lighten up the atmosphere and create a sense of of excitement in the person. Anyway, we got that. This particular person does license disc and he also does cover boards. So this is part of his trade. So I met the brother there and I greeted him Salaam Alaikum alaikum Salaam, but I found him to be a bit withdrawn. I didn't find him to be so bubbly and so exciting. I didn't make much of it. And then I did what I needed to do. Then another brother came up and greeted him and again, I noticed the men was a bit withdrawn and not not of his nature. And then he just broke down and said, Brother, just pray for me. Yesterday I buried my 18 year old daughter
kimia Shiva in my back. I said I'm looking at the man and I'm saying he's not so bright and he's not so bubbly. And why is he so so pulled up, only to know that yesterday the man buried his 18 year old daughter. We don't know what each man's chest is carrying. And we've never been in the foot or the shoes of others. If there's one loud lesson I have learned in all my years of traveling, and this message continues to come out loud
To me, don't ever judge any person
the magician's come out to challenge say the NA Musa alayhis salam out to Balu behala him we're fuckery him. A yo murale Melaka Sanjana, Aloma urine Toma fidella? No, they come out in the numbers. The narration suggests from 900 to 10s of 1000s.
When say tenemos la salatu salam tells them drop whatever you have, and they drop for Elko. Hi, Bella one, what are you seeing? Warm Wakanda will be receptive field around and just to throw your own and to excite your own. They drop this stuff and they drop the ropes, and they say in the honor and the glory of Pharaoh, we will be dominant.
And they said, Hello minister, Allah, whoever is successful today is indeed blessed. Whoever wins is honored. And that was through. They said it implying that victory was there is only to realize in the end that they were defeated, and victory was for mousseline Salaam. But to expedite things. Musa alayhis salam momentarily. feels a sense of nervousness for Oh Josephine FC E for the mouza and why did he feel the sense of nervousness in obese faith on Allah is unshakable, unmovable. But masala Sam thought for himself that when I'm going to drop my stuff, it's also going to be into a serpent. It's going to do very similar things which they did. And the nature of the their magic or the
witchcraft, the Quran says was Sahara, Luna nurse, and these are different types of magic. And one of it is where you cast a spell on the vision of people. So the reality remains the same. The stick is a stick the staff is a staff, but you play with the eyes of people you play with the vision of people, you temper with the sight of people it appears to them, as the Quran said, you know, he means
the due to the nature of the magic, and the Quran acknowledges the word Jah OBC Hari Navin in terms of magic they displayed amazing magic was started on a boom they struck terror in the hearts of people. They dropped the staff 1000s and 1000s of serpents moving around people in absolute panic. Allah told musala salam latter half don't fear in the Quran tell Allah you will reign sovereign you will remain reign dominant over them drop what's in your hand? lt Yeah, again the move Assyrian says that Allah said whatever is in your hand, just drop it and see what happens. And when say it now moves on Islam drops it and they realize that this is not which graph and the Quran says it's so
amazing. May Allah bless us with the ecstasy of worship. We have many other ecstasy as many other excitements where we jump with joy. There is also a joy in the pleasure of Allah. We have tasted the fake pleasure of roaming our gazes. May Allah expose us to the pure pleasure of restraining our gaze. We have tasted the fake pleasure of hoarding our wealth. May Allah introduce us to the wholesome pleasure of spending our wealth. We have tasted the fake pleasure of staying awake in the night, playing cards, watching movies, seen peruse in porn and doing the rest of it. May Allah introduce us to the wholesome pleasure of conversing with Allah. There is also a different pleasure
we're all guilty for all Ts Sahara Tosa jadine. Allah says when Satan or Moosa dropped his staff, and it swallowed everything. The Magician's did not fall into such dar. Allah didn't use the word fall, Allah said they were dropped, they would drop meaning given the miraculous nature of the miracle of Musa alayhis salam, they had no choice but to drop down and say this is the absolute beam. And this is the absolute Allah and Bella Bella al Ameen. And I was speaking about this young boy that I would love change these destiny in 13 in 13 months, today, the boy is sitting in front of us and reading Quran. Recently, last year somewhere I had a program in one of the informal
settlements. And it was a Saturday night it was in a very simple structure attempt was erected. Basic lighting was put up, which is the norm there, but we got exposure to it because the program was there. And I didn't make much of my audience gave my humble talk and then there was some meals arranged there was a
You know, lovely atmosphere. I returned home the next day the Imam who hosted me dropped me a message. He said chef, there was a brother from the informal settlement, who owns three casinos in a shebeen. And he attended the program. He was so moved he accepted the dean and he shut all his casinos
said y'all love la?
This is when a person the Quran says there are two systems of Allah giving guidance. Allahu yeji to be la he mania Sha de la Hema unit. One is the prerogative of a law and one is the justice of Allah. The prerogative of Allah is he can guide whomsoever He wishes. I've met many people in my travels, who just felt the instinct and the inclination, without meeting with anyone that was just a dream, a dream and a vision and an inclination and Allah guided them. So Allah says, one is the person I select. That is my prerogative, that is my choice. And my justice is that whoever desires it desires it, I never deny it. whoever desires it earnestly and honestly, but you got to be sincere. In the
opening verses of the 21st Jews. Allah says in a Salah, Tatianna Anil fascia he will Moncure verily prayer will stop you from immorality. Prayer will prevent you from immorality and sin. In the footnotes of this ayah is written, many can argue I'm performing prayer for so many years, but I still do my evil. And the answer given is properly given very beautifully. Are you taking the medication as prescribed by Allah or not? What tablets you taking? Okay, how many day? What's your dosage? How many times a day that's the problem. You know, you don't ever take it with caffeine, you don't take it before having tea after tea. So you're not taking it in the correct dosage in the
correct quantity at the correct time, you're not going to see the desired results. So what happened to these magicians?
They came in the morning and these are the words of nicotine. in the morning. They were disbelievers, they were opponents to the Prophet, and they were magicians. And in the evening of that same day, they were believers they were Sahaba and they were martyrs.
So really, my brother May Allah take the young boy from strength to strength, and our other little lad Masha Allah who came so sweet. You know, like one scholar said it so beautifully. When children are small. They're so sweet. You say I feel like eating them up. And then when they grow up, you say why didn't eat them up?
Because now that same child was so sweet and adorable. Tragically, he evolves into a monster.
He was so sweet. He was so loving. He was so obliging. He was so you know, he had this amazing soft demeanor. And then tragically, he succumbs to the provocations of society, arrogance in his attitude, pride in his speech haughtiness in his language. The hadith of Bokhari, nebulae Salaam says a young man was walking, clad in a beautiful garb, clad in a beautiful garb. gebouw nafsa, who, impressed by his attire, impressed by his attire, and then Allah just told the earth to swallow him, and the earth caved and swallowed him and he was wiped out. And it made no difference to the earth. It will, alumna Xiao Hai de la Rosa key Fatah aphria
Have you not reflected over the earth how amazing it is? Allah says in Surah masala, that it's barely houses your disease, and it's back accommodates your living.
Can you have a room? No, this is the sitting room. That's the living room. That's a dead room. I know of a brother who's got a house adjacent to the cemetery. He says I got it for a song why nobody wants to buy it isn't like I bought it. Because I'm not gonna die earlier. I'll die on my time. And it'll be just easy. I don't need a house. I can just take me and drop me off
it but nobody wants to buy the house why it's adjacent to the cemetery.
for a child to come up, even to mumble something it's a miracle. And then to Him the glory of Allah is a miracle of a much greater magnitude. If a child comes up, and he musters the courage just to come and say anything, even if it doesn't make sense is amazing.
The child in the cradle, the toddler in the club that defended the honor of use of Le Salaam and exonerated use of a Salaam, the Quran says well, Shaggy, the Shah, he don't mean only ha, in Ghana, for me, so put them in COBOL. That when we do Xena, apart from Allah watching, Allah has also humans that are watching. The creation of Allah is also
Watching. One of my scholars used to mention this often, and it strikes a chord with me and I shade often. He says, everybody is observing your shenanigans and your arrogance. Some are silent out of desperation and others are silent out of dignity but everybody knows what you're up to.
So when you're doing your nonsense summer Okay, now that she's live this my life, what must I get in his space and others are? Well, I don't open my mouth. But implicate my job might implicate My, my, my nephew is married in the family and then it can get sour and ugly. So you know, we just keep it to ourselves. May Allah guide us May Allah protect us? May these young boys goes from strength to strength, and may they ignite within our youth, the spark and the spirit to also study Dean and have ashame Dean. This is something that we ought to envy. And we need to look with the eye of envy.
The focus of what I had intended to speak on today, and that is, what is the secret? What is the secret and the formula to the success of great individuals? One of the most common questions asked to legendary personalities, be it materially academically, spiritually, is what is the secret to your success? You ask the famous person who's Oh, well, you know what? I've been asked this question 1000 times, that would be the most commonly asked question to any man right up on the top. And amazingly, more than often, when we really microscopically look at their lives, then you will be pleasantly surprised. The secret to their success is something rather simple and easy, but it just
needed commitment and diligence.
They say he's a genius. What is a genius? Is 1% inspiration 99% perspiration?
One inspiration and 99% perspiration? Somebody asked Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah the Great intellectual giant, whom Allah had endowed fever and and blessed with so much knowledge. Oh Abu hanifa kafer Bella Tama Bellavita How did you achieve what you achieved?
His jurisprudence has been compiled, it was a successful and Trepanier. He had completed the Quran in his life close to 6000 times. He was privileged with seeing a line a dream on multiple occasions. He met many Sahaba and the accolades of Imam Abu hanifa can continue. Imam Shafi Rahim Allah a man of great fit himself says Lapa design and Bella the woman in her Emma Muslim in Abu hanifa. The African woman was 13 or 15 is Abu refis Siva from Erbil. Mashallah, in Ala Moana v. Ron, voila, Bill Murray baney will be Kufa for a matter of Bina Abaddon Allah He made a mockery of Siva, Lacock, Zan and beloved. Indeed, the likes of Abu hanifa has decorated the land of Allah, they've adorned the
land of Allah, people like this bring pleasure and they bring beauty to the land of Allah. Lapid, zanele Bella, the woman Allah Mr. Murray muslimeen. Look at the nature of these great jurists. They were so bold in complimenting their contemporaries. They were so bold in recognizing the greatness of people of a common field. Today, no, no we rivals. We cannot share, you know, a meal together or we cannot have an innocent or a sincere smile together. Why are we in a common trade? We in a common business we in a common field. Both are intellectual giants, and both were deeply and grasped and immersed in Islamic jurisprudence. But Subhana Allah the openness of their hearts, that indeed Imam
Abu hanifa is so amazing he is decorated the earth with his rulings of fick from Erbil. musharaka nila hoonah v. Ron Weller Bill Murray Bane. I toured the east and the west to see if I could find a replica of Abu hanifa. But I've realized only one woman gave birth to him, and the mole was then taken away.
Then I went back to goof I said probably Kufa can give you more Abu hanifa as I realize even Kufa is gone dry and barren for documentary about the nanny, may the mercy of Allah descend upon him perpetually. So someone asked about hanifa What is the secret of your greatness? We all wish I love that man. I admire that man. I envy that man. Or that's my hero. That's my hero. That's the man I really worship and provided we have the right values in place, and we idolize in the correct individuals. We idolize in the correct individuals. Otherwise, my brother
You read the private life of many of these celebrities. And it galls me, it kills me by a lie. It kills me. When I see a man coming to the masjid with a T shirt, on which it's boldly printed the name of some of these stars or celebrities, which in reality, like someone said, He's not a star, but he's a disaster.
If you go into his private life, the stench that it will give off the foul smell that it will give off. It is beyond your comprehension to imagine a human can perform such evil things. And in its day, it's documented and it's recorded. So Abu hanifa gave this formula and that's my message. And you know, we could just build on that. He said, ma bahal to build a further wellness than cuff to Anil is stiffer
afield to build a further 30 Wollaston cafe to Anil is the father.
I was never proud to share the knowledge Allah gave me and I was never shy to learn from others what Allah gave them.
Whatever Allah gave me if anybody came, my brother sat down, it's the deen of Allah. I have no monopoly. I'll share it with you. I will convey to you whatever lens I can go in conveyed. I never kept my fist tight on what I had. Our Dean is the Dean of a selfless nature go out. Then it'd be over last holiday was lm said methylome. Bertha Nila Who? The example of the knowledge that Allah has given me is like Elaine, the orlimar say nebulae Sallam likened his knowledge to rain and not a well, in a well thirsty people come to it, but a rain goes to thirsty people.
The cloud travels to the thirsty people travels to those that are desperate of water. So I was never proud. I did never withhold whatever my gave me gum, let me share it with you.
Well, let's think of to Anil is the Father. And I was never shy to learn from anyone. In English, they say
every person you meet in life knows at least one thing you don't know. Be sure not to leave him till you don't learn it from him.
And yet, someone said, If you know how to listen, you will profit from people who even talk badly.
If you know how to listen, just you have the art of listening, just just the art in the ability. You know, listen with the intention of listening and not with the intention of judging.
If you have the art of listening, you will profit you will benefit even from people who talk badly because that's what I must avoid.
Say to not know Come on, academically they argue and debate whether he was a prophet or not. But suffice to say in his honor, that a lot recognized he's he's wisdom. You know, you say this man's words were retweeted. So many people liked it. Allah liked his advice and captured it in the Quran. To coin that phrase in social media. Now it was retweeted it was liked. Allah like these advice, and what more do you need? If Allah likes your advice? If Allah pays tribute to your advice, and what did Allah say? Allah dedicated a chapter to lokman. It's mentioned in even a cathedral. People were sitting around him they had converge great luminaries, and drawing from his wisdom. So someone came
close to him and nudged him. And he said, Allah still levy contattare algorithm, but hang on Luqman, unto the very gentleman who was a shepherd who is to take the flock. We were together, man, I was a shepherd, you were a shepherd. I'm still a shepherd. What happened to you? How did you climb the ladder? And how did you reach where you are? What did I say? The most commonly question that would be asked to any legendary individually is the secret. And really if we want to learn you will realize it's simple things, but we need to be diligent about it.
He said two things, decided to kill Hadith was some to Ramallah Yani I only spoke the truth. And I never concerned myself in matters that were not related to me.
I never concerned myself said to kill Hadith just spoke the truth. There's an amazing incident mentioned in Metallica, Tenzin in the 28 Jews in Surah moja de la and say the Narnia Viola needs to say I'm the only individual in this entire Ummah, who practice on this ayah because the verse was revealed, in which there were some elements of hypocrisy that used to come
Gather around Nabi sallallahu, wasallam and they used to sit there with ulterior motives. They used to come and sit there and then they try and impress the love that they have from the Vla. Somebody will fake so Allah subhanho wa Taala imposed upon anyone who wants to come close to an Ibiza Luddism give some charity and then come now because you're not genuine then it's okay. No, no, I'll come later. We'll make it for the next program.
So Allah said, If you come to the gathering of nwba salam, humans give some charity. Yeah, yo holla Deena Amano Ivana J. Tomorrow sola, fucka demo beignet, Edina, Java, welcome sadhaka Oh, you who believe if you want to converse with the Navy overnight and give some charity, the verse was revealed I had a dinar in my hand, I made some change. I gave some charity and I came straight into the company of nebulae. Salatu was Salam. I obliged with the injunction. And I came, and then I had a discussion with Nabila Salaam 10 things he asked me to be a salon is very detailed. Out of the two things, just one advice. He asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam mother us not only in a Jyoti NFC
on a viola in a nutshell in a nutshell, what can I do to save my soul?
Once a brother did me a favor, so I asked him what do I owe you? What's the remuneration? He says? No, no, just make a simple draw for me. I said, What did this make do? I can control my enough's? I said, Simple. Simple, my brother. That's a big ask your knifes the Animas say that nerves is so wicked, that when you and I succumb to our wrong word, we say no, it wasn't me mention God me.
But that's that's the lame excuse and the quick excuse, and there is an explanation to it as well. The question is then posed. When the devil was asked, and at that time he wasn't the devil, he was asked to Prostrate to Adam, which he declined, who got him? A
simple question. Whenever we do any wrong worship mama and Sonny will shape on, Mama and Sonny will shape on one as Cora for Enzo who shavon was a Krabi that whenever we slip up, we squarely put the blame on the devil. And there can be no doubt that the devil has a che in the wrong that we perpetrate
the Anima answer and respond, that it was nothing other than the ego of the devil that denied him to bound and prostrate, which made him the devil. So in that sense, the ego is so evil.
So Satan, Arya lost the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what can I do to rescue myself? And nobody saw some said two things. Polls said the vocal Helen
O'Reilly what ever happens speak the truth. And whatever happens only let halaal enter your belly.
Say the now Abdullah Abdullayev nabasa is mentioned in cuspal halaal in Tempe will fill in cassville halaal. A shed dohmen knuckle jabel asked me to transfer a mountain I'll do that for you. But to limit and restrict and to make sure that my earnings are absolutely pure, wholesome and halaal they're not tainted, they're not diluted, they're not contaminated. They're not polluted, they haven't been soiled in any way, is more daunting than moving a mountain from one place to another.
Why because there's so many temptations, there's so many temptations to push this in the market to speak ally to distort, to go through the black market to be you know, dealing in in things that are incorrect. So nebulae Salatu was Salam said do two things, two things, and that will give you salvation. The verses I recited my brother
Yusuf alayhi salatu salam brothers plot against him. And they say this youngster our dad is too close. We need to wipe him off the radar. wipe him off that you know what nose navigation device can pick him up, clear him out of the equation. So you're Lola can Wahhabi calm, then you know your dad will only love you and that's it. And they plot and they connive and they have all these thoughts and they come to a well and they drop him. I don't want to go through the whole detail of it. And they drop him and they say okay, you know we've ended his Chapter The story is over. A few days later, one of the brothers used to just come and keep tabs on him to see if he's still there. Is he
breathing or not? But like you know what, just for the sake that the more distant he is the better. So a group passes by a jarred sejarah Don Vassallo woreda, for dolla dolla and they drop the bucket and the little boy clutches on and he holds on and this is some hope for him.
And who's done the stream his own blood. And he holds on to the bucket and they pull the bucket up and out he comes. And they like amazed because this is a beautiful child he's a child is sweet and useable a Salaam was so handsome that nebulae Salam said, Allah has distributed half of beauty to the entire world. And the other half exclusively Allah gave it to us over a Salam.
So every beautiful man, and every gorgeous woman and every attractive individual person, and every handsome looking and every adorable child has a fraction of the half that was distributed to the entire world. And the other half was exclusively given to us of a salon. You cannot possibly comprehend the beauty that Allah had given to say the use of a salatu salam, it was beyond description and the Quran speaks about it, etc.
So they are pleasantly surprised one of the brothers come No, no, that's our slave and he's elope. Okay, they exchanged some money. What can you feed him in? Azusa? He did. And they really wanted to get rid of him. Yeah, you can take it. They take 20 denims, as the narration suggests, and then they distribute it amongst the brothers. And that's about it. He's taken and as far as the brothers are gone, the tail is over. But life continues to shape up, life continues to improve every forthcoming days, a brighter future in the life of usable Islam. And Allah brings that day. And that's that's the point I want to draw your focus to, Allah brings that day that the very use of who was dropped
into the well by his fellow siblings, this use of has now evolved into a Nabhi. And he is the ruler of the state. And he's sitting on the throne. And the brothers line up with their begging bowls. Due to a crisis that has gripped the land of Egypt. There's absolute feminine, there's absolute desperation, and the brothers walk in. And after much discussions, there is a strong indication, and a loud sense that the king and the ruler and the men in state is their brother themselves. And he's not an unknown entity. So I'm throwing you to that point. So they sit up and they close up, and then they muster the courage callooh in a gala and the use of actually the I A before, so you can give
you a little better understanding. Use of a salatu salam engages these strangers in inverted commas to them we don't know who this man is use of chapter is over. We done with him. We done we've closed the chapter. But those who persist they shine. Those who comply only time designs and proves their amazing abilities. So usually Salaam causes them, hell fall to hell allow him to fall to be use of is a new folks, I want to ask you a question. And I'm going to be crude, and I'm going to be upfront. I'm paraphrasing here. any clue what you people did with use of
this pin drop silence? Because nobody knows the atrocities the atrocities that was perpetrated against our brother other than himself. Now they look close and look at the dials. And they realize the jeans are the same. And then with a crack in the voice in a gala and the use of Your Majesty, Your Excellency, King
are we talking to our brother himself? Is this use of
and use only sir modestly says under use of omada of the Yes, I am use of I am use of. And that's exactly what I was saying when they see this. They cannot believe their eyes. They cannot believe their eyes. It's too good to be true. Well, according to us, we've ended your life we've terminated your growth. We literally buried you physically metaphorically on all fronts. And when did this happen? And how did this happen? And why did this happen? Share the secret. How did Allah give you this? And usefully salatu salam on and that's a newbie, a newbie regardless of his challenge. despondency never overwhelms him. And regardless of His glory, pride never grabs him.
That's an OB. He could be sitting right on top right. Now Vla Salam will be given on the day of Tiamat mahkamah Mahmoud in Fayetteville burry, I read the narration, the write up, that maybe la Salam will make Shabbat for 10 categories, or as a bath batha gulla buka mahkamah mamuka Allah will elevate you to Mahmoud Mahmoud means a praised location that on the day
Yama, Allah will elevate nebulae Salaam to such a lofty rank that leaves the creation even alone will praise him.
Leave the creation, creation can praise You know, one of the best poems I've read in the honor of nebulae Salaam, with the poet combines this long, amazing couplets, and the highlight of the couplets is the final stanza. He says, I haven't praised Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam through my bone. But honestly, my poem has been praised through his name. Ma m medacta, Mohammedan Bhima carletti wala came medacta makala Tb mohammedi. So your use of is sitting on the throne, your things have turned drastically for the brothers. They down and out. They on the ground, they battered and bruised, they maimed an injured, they paralyze the incapacitated, they have their begging bowls, and
the man who they drop in the well is sitting on the throne they I cannot believe in knuckle and the use of Hello, are you the main use of yes with tears in his eyes? And the use of
love or Elaine? codman a lot more Alina? Yes, yes, yes my brothers. You're talking to your own blood brother. Okay, then how did this happen? Share the secret. What did I say? It's much easier than we think provided we apply ourselves to things my brothers that's the secret
in the home a turkey way Yes. Bill Allahu Akbar. In Romania turkey way. Yes, Bill. For in Allah allow you the
masini if you can indicate the modesty of a newbie. He didn't say I did two things is that if anybody can do two things, Allah will give him this honor. Not I did it. Look at that the beauty we learn from every utterance of an OB. Allah doesn't like my brother. If there's something Allah despises, his way when we attribute greatness to ourself, I promise you study Quran and Sunnah and you will realize how much Allah despises when you say I'm skilled, and I know it, and I'm competent, and I'm experienced. This is something Allah despises. Satan now Moosa was asked in a public gathering, almost a who's the most learned, I'm the most learned.
The Malaysians are authentic and Allah speaks about it in the Quran, the incident that followed the on Anna, and the scholars say the academic response of musala salaam was correct, because NWA is the most learned of the nation. But Allah subhanaw taala wanted him to attribute knowledge to Allah. And Allah said, Go to the junction of the two oceans. And there's a gentleman there he is bosom imbibes assigns, that you're not familiar with the name of the science with the elementary aspects of the science, leave alone the details. There's a man who's got a knowledge you don't even know this knowledge exists. You don't even know this knowledge exists. And that is what we refer to as a meta
Queeny. So you have elimate, tertiary, and those are the rules pertaining to Quran and Hadith lawful, unlawful, permissible, impermissible, and then you have the likes of Hadith, who has been tasked by Allah with the secrets of the creation, this man's death, that one's life, his prosperity, his collapse, his his, his ascension is drop, growth, business plus all these things, the wisdom of a lion is decisions.
So what did say the use of say in Romania, 30 years bill, anybody who can have two things, now a cursory glance, and I want to draw the drive this point a bit more, to remind myself, my brother, not to impress on you so much, but to impress on myself. If you and I can take these two qualities to heart, then I promise you, you will be surprised what Allah will keep for you in stock in this world and in our current
two things, study the entire life of use of it's riddled with tests and challenges. So when it comes to tests, it's perseverance when it comes to temptations. It is piety. When he was his time with his father was very short and brief. He barely spent eight years, nine years and then after he leaves the lap of his dead, only to return when his dad has lost his vision. One generation eight years later.
I remember when I was a kid, I read a newspaper article, twins meet after 32 years. And you know, you take different paths in life and one goes this way and one goes that way. And that's life and that's life. It just moves. You don't know what destiny has ahead of you. So
One sustenance takes him in a direction someone's job, someone's marriage takes him someone's crisis may sometimes I met a person in Australia, who's who's from Africa. And Allah had tested him with a child who was physically challenged, and none of the local clinics, or none of the local institutions could provide the necessary care for the style. And the only clinic that was offering nursing and therapy for the style was somewhere in in Queensland, and he had to relocate. And that was a compelling choice he had to make in the interest of his style. And I met him at the grave of his child, we went to visit the you know, went to pay our respects. And that's where we met him. And
he said, we will located purely for this child, because this is where therapy was available for him. But fate had it that we came here spent few years and Allah called him back. So that's life. That's life. We have no clue what it holds for us. But study the life of use of a Salaam.
He said, separated from his father at that young age and there is out in the cruel world and cruel that when his brothers took him in front of the Father, they embrace him and hug him and as soon as the father was, could not see they drop him and they start kicking him. But you know, my brothers, you gave my dad the world. He said, Yeah, you can call on 11 stars, ask them to help you. Great dreams, great visions. And he perseveres, and he's dropped into the well and he perseveres, and he falls into the lap of some strangers and he perseveres, and we say somebody has a limit. Well, our server has no limit, we've created limits.
server has no limits.
According to us, money has no limit. You just go on and on. There's no limit to it.
In nama yuhua, for sabie arona eduroam be really high sub if there is an act for which they ease in finite reward limitless rewards limitless rewards. Now Vla Salam says when Allah snatches the vision of a person
last week, two weeks ago, I was in Bulawayo. And then while we were having meals, in the night, they arranged some, you know, light bites and snacks. So the entire community came. So this one doctor was there. And then, you know, talking on different things, he said, the local doctors did some treatment. And, you know, helping the people, the underprivileged, the physically challenged those who don't have amenities and wealth. So they did some eye operations and procedures in some of the informal settlements. So the one brother, there was a very amazing person, and he really took a liking to me. He said, shall I tell you if I've cried in my life for 50 years, that was the day I
cried the most. So I asked him why he said, You have this old gogo, the old granny, and she's living with all the grandchildren for 18 years. And she knows them by voice and sound. And now the procedure is done. And Allah restores the site. And now she's matching voice with site.
And she says, it's like, okay, I was calling on this son for 10 years, and that grandchild, but I had no clue how they look. And as the vision was restored, she's now seen the child and matching the child with the boys. He said, I stopped for three days in my life.
For three days, I often mentioned the article that I read in one book, where a woman in America was asked if the almighty restores your vision for one second, what would you love to see just a minute, nothing else? And she said, I would love to see the smile of a child.
Just give me a child. Let me see smile, and then you can take my vision again. And Abdullah urbanizacion Abdullah be he whose narration comes in Babu adon, whose narration comes in Babylon. And I read the entire narration in intensity molesta, the shadow of Miss God, when the Navy of Allah passed away, he made God to Allah allow us to enjoy looking at your nibi Satan. Password was sitting and someone passed by and he said, Oh my god, can I look at the eyes that looked at mohammedanism daily to barely have a name and let the raw data and he said I just sat and I marvel at the gaze and the eyes and the vision that could see the eyes of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and other
Lebanese at NAB there would be when the Navy of Allah passed away. He said Allah used to love going to sit and look at NaVi la Salaam now he's gone along what am I going to do with these eyes This is my request sees my vision.
It's an authentic narration sees my vision and eat Sahabi was amazing.
For co phurba Saru his vision was seized and then you had another Sahabi Mahindra the Allahu anhu. He used to say Oh Allah none of my companions want to live beyond Nabi sallallahu, wasallam because it's too daunting to imagine life post the demise of nebulous but I'm asking you a lot. Let me live beyond nebulae Salaam. And let me go through those challenging times.
inspire me to persevere, it will suck ditto who may yet and come as a doctor who Haiyan so that I can live his message as I did when he was alive, I can deliver on it even after his demise sallallahu wasallam.
So when a person's eyesight is taken away when a person's eyesight is taken away, and then Allah asked them like What did my servant say? said Oh Allah, He praised you. He praise you and Allah refers to eyes as happy but a them to beloved things to a person. And Allah Allah says, then build for him a palace in Geneva bill for him a palace in Ghana. So on every perseverance, I mean, we go through so much in our lives, my brothers, I met to revert, and he always speaks to me and he asked me some verses of the Quran. And in a simple pronounciation he said, What an amazing verse of the Quran. So I said, Of course every verse is amazing which verse are you saying? It says a woman
acuna, analog Laughlin.
I said so sorry, brother, woman canal hockey coffee lean.
Okay, you probably just want to, you know, read it again slowly for me. Omar Khan, our annual Hulk is our feeling.
He says this verse, I cannot get over it, leave it.
I share something about this person, because he was an atheist before.
He says what is the most dull moment in the life of an atheist?
What is the most shallow moment in the life of an atheist? I said, Tell it to me, my brother. He said I've walked that dark road, the most dull moment in the life of an atheist ease. After owning everything. You got nobody to think.
When things work out in your life, it's it's your human nature. You scream a lot. You don't say a lot you scream a lot. You walk in the house, you jump in a law you feel in a law you speak in Allah, you display in a lion in our Deen. We have said the two sugar where you just fall in prostration immediately. Apart from offering two units of prayer, you just drop in prostration when Gabriella knows Toba was accepted. in Medina I went to eat mount Salah is just outside Medina and I consciously went there because of this narration to tie up the Malaysian with the location and he said I performed my federal Salah on the rooftop had como la la una Yama 15 nights of social boycott
that were imposed on us at labs and I will never forget the morning of that 50th day. I got up and I heard a cry a call. I heard an announcer announced Abhishek Maria Cobb behavior Yeoman. Murali. C'mon louella dotco. mk gob. Today is the greatest day. You never had a day like this. And you're never going to have a day like this ever again. And I realized my Toba is accepted. And I fell down in such dark and nobody will understand the pleasure I had in that search that
I fell down in such the horror to sajida what is the most dull moment in the life? I swear by allow my brother speak to a law. Sometimes just lift your hands, let your tears trickle and let your heart talk. You don't have to verbalize it. Yeah, Allah masirah. opening verses of surah PA. Allah says he knows your secret. And he also knows something more hidden than a secret you might ask for means more concealed, what can be more hidden than a secret. And the scholars say is when you sit in and you daydreaming and you have an 1000 thoughts and emotions crossing your heart in your mind simultaneously. And if somebody taps you or nudges you, and tells you Brother What were you saying?
You will have difficulty in recollecting your own pattern of thoughts. Allah says I'm listening to that also. I'm listening to that. Also. I'm listening to that also. You say, Well, I'm going through this emotion, my marriage. I'm going through this challenge with my children. I'm going through this with my finances. I'm going through this with my in laws and I'm having this in hell, I'm going through so much my love. Warmer Ghana, I need a raw feeling. And we are not heedless. We're not oblivious. We're not unmindful. We know exactly by the precise moment what's happening. He came back he says I just cannot get over with this I a woman cannot analyze. Sometimes when you see the
tyranny of the tyrants, and you see the oppression of the dictators, and you see the aggression of the butchers, and you see the oppression of the dogmatic rulers, you like what's happening in the world. And Allah says Allah Subhana

They have no clue.
Anyway, coming back to what we said, everybody looking at us of what's the secret to things. He went through all these challenges he persevered. In each challenge of life we find our Creator, my brother, we find our Creator. That is why I often say every man will enter gender through the mercy of Allah. But every dweller of gender will have a different quality which will attract the lowest mercy.
Whoever will end up in general will be through the mercy of Allah. But every genetti something different of ease will impress Allah.
And we don't know, at abiel fitted key. I read the reference of this GitHub, a person appeared before like in that this incident is mentioned, a person appeared before a lot.
And then his book of deeds were presented.
And he realized that things are bad, and he's doomed for hell. And he realized that you know what, now it's crunch time, and there's nothing much you can do. And just then a bag was dropped on a scale of good deeds. And this gave weight and strength. And he's all excited about this.
So his curiosity gets into him, he opens the bag. He's even more surprised the sand in it.
There's dust in it. So he inquires from the melodica What is this? He said, this is a handful of sand you had hurled into the grave of your Muslim brother went bad in him. Allah was impressed by this action.
Allah was impressed by this action.
Anyway, say that our use of goes through this. And then comes the time of challenge. Can you imagine you've been through so much in your life with challenges separation, well, then you made into a slave then you live in in somebody else's house, then you're in a foreign country. Then you contending with all this. And just when you think it's time to now be over? Yeah, it strikes again. And here comes another test altogether of a different magnitude. And what is it is young is evolved in his prime is in his beauty is a young man is a human after all, and maybe is not exempted from human emotions, and maybe is divinely protected from sin, but in a way he is not exempted and this
is the wisdom of Allah so in the beef said and the beef feels angry and the beef feels hurt. And the B goes through common human emotions and a B gets excited to see goodness in his family gets said nebulae. Salatu was Salam cried Nabi sallallahu Sallam cried, when did he cry? When
his son Ibrahim radi Allahu anhu passed away. And that was born to him from Mario de la mana, basic Islamic history. My brother nabire salam had seven children, six were born to him from Khadija de la Marina. Khadija Mary's Nabi sallallahu Sallam at the age of 40. She was widowed once before this or twice, two opinions to this year. We need to know which is one of the greatest woman that ever put foot on this earth. We don't once or twice Abu Hala, a former husband. She then gets married to nearly Salam at the age of 40. Look at the strength the fertility of woman at that time at the age of 40. She gets married to VOA Salam. She's in the wedlock of nwba, ceram 25 years. The only woman
from all the spouses of Nabi la Salaam, that enjoy exclusiveness with NaVi la Salam No, otherwise
And the longest period 25 years.
In that 25 years she bears Nabi sallallahu wasallam six children. She bears Nabi sallallahu, wasallam six children, four daughters, two sons are here and pass him both passed away in the infancy. The daughters the elder has been Zainab Zeynep who was wedded to Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi was the nephew of Khadija de la mana, basic Islamic history. I was giving a talk the other day and I broke down and I started crying. I said my brothers my brothers, we don't know the life of nebulae salam, we sit on our phones for hours and hours. We can peruse, we can chat, we can open this file, close that file, open this club, close that club, open a book of Syrah and study the rich and
impeccable flawless legacy of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Zeynep Raphael Yolanda was married to Abu Dhabi, the nephew of Saudi Arabia Nana, and that marriage was proposed by Tara de la Juana Wakanda Rasulullah sallallahu. ala johari for her and then we had Roca and Joe Mickelson, respectively Where did to say the northmen and when both of them passed away, now VSA Some said Oh, man, you're such a son in law. If I had 11 daughters, I wouldn't have touched my I would have given one after the other to you.
Today you give your first one and you say Bulte
and then of course the queen. For tomorrow the alarm on her said now, Amara Ilana said, Allah gave me a lot. And I'm grateful to everything Allah gave me. But for three things, Ali, I will be green with envy for you. There's three things early my hat off for you. Number one on the Battle of hiber. Whenever you saw Sam said no to Nirvana, Rajan radula Nevada and you have Bala hawara Sula, who you have boo Allahu wa, Sulu. Tomorrow, I'm gonna give the banner to a man because the first day they fought, there was no victory. Second day they fought there was no victory. Nobody says that. Give me the banner. Tomorrow, I'm going to give the banner to someone who loves the line is nubby. And
that's not all our line is nobody loves him just so much. And Sahaba said that night we couldn't sleep who's getting this honor? Who's getting this? I remember when I was a kid, when you're going for exclusion, I couldn't sleep.
You know, just that excitement and that creeps you out what you're going to do, where you're going to go and all that excitement. One simple, small excursion in the world.
The excitement that tomorrow the man who will receive the banner, and in the end the banner was given to say Denali, and said now Omar said, I love you and I honor you for this rally. And then he enjoyed proximity to the masjid and access to the masjid and close location to the masjid which only he accepted. And the third thing and that was the greatest of all three, and that is that Allah has blessed him by marrying Fatima de la Mancha, Abubakar Avalon who went and the results on said nothing. And overkill came back and he said, Oh man, I tried. But nobody says him said nothing. Why didn't you go? And then I went, and I modestly came. And I said, only overlock? Can I have the honor
of getting married to your daughter and lead generation? I don't want to go into all the details. And nobody saw some said nothing. And I stepped aside. And then we spoke to the Rahmani BNA oath. And we said, Listen, man, it doesn't happen for me. Maybe it can work for you. We are like, I can't get it. Nobody else must get it. If I can get it, why must anybody else get it?
And then we spoke up drama and even an oath. And he went forward. And the reason was just bashful and modest. And he said nothing. And then say Denali, when and the visa Some said, I've been waiting for you, Ali. I've been waiting for you. My Fatima wasn't going anywhere else. My Fatima wasn't going anywhere else. And when when say than earlier, the generation is very long. I don't want to go into all the details. Anyway, coming back to the point that I was saying, say you do not use of alayhi salatu salam was now tempted with a challenge with a fitna. He went through all these challenges and all these difficulties. And what were those difficulties? He persevered one after the
other. And now he's evolved and in this young, handsome, beautiful man. And the Quran draws the complexity of the challenge. What was the greatness of, of Satan our use of what was the formula my brother two things sober. Life is just gonna throw challenges at us all the time. How do we conduct ourselves which is going to hang on and move on, hang on and move on, take the next day and move on. One ends, the next one starts and that's the hardest. Nobody says Sam said before the Yama a fitna will come, it will grip you and it will toll on you. And you will say how the Maha lickity this is consuming me. I'm aging by the second I've never been through this and just when you will receive
deliverance from it and you will sigh with relief you will be gripped by something more intense than the former one
And it will carry on till you meet your Creator.
We're going through times my brothers we hear enough people becoming
apostates, people psychologically abandoning their faith. May Allah protect us. Really, really don't in times. I mentioned last week in my talk, I was in the Caribbean. A brother asked me please, I want you to meet someone. So I said, Okay, we'll meet him. Time moves on the conference back hotel invites. It's not happening. Again. He's on my case is just like, please, you need to meet this man. Okay, I'll try and see how it can happen. It's just not happening. So finally I asked the brother what's the passion to meet him? He said, Sure. I'ma revert. This men brought me into Islam. And tragically, he's left Islam.
The man who introduced me to Islam, unfortunately has left the fold of Islam himself. The man who introduced me to the light has lost the light himself.
You know, he, Hakeem Omar Rahim Allah used to say, if you want to become a scholar, you can go to so and so. If you want to become a disciple, you can go to so and so. But if you want to become a human come to me.
I read a beautiful saying the other day, they say there's a big difference between human being and being human.
There's a big difference between human being and being a human. Are we humans the manner in which we live anyway, coming back to the point. So even our use of is in the palace of this woman, and she's been very kind to him. And when she's been kind there is a moral and ethical obligation because the woman's been kind and the Koran highlights the complexity or our that will lead to a fee baiting. Ha. See, he was aloka till
she comes seduce in use of she comes to solicit a favor. She makes a lustful advancement. Now
it's challenging enough for any woman to fall on a woman on a man there was a friend of mines in Australia, it makes me laugh. He says, you know, Allah has given me the strength inshallah I will never be forward. But if somebody comes to me, Allah knows best.
Make dua we don't ask for it. But Allah knows best. Allah knows best. You say that I restrained myself, I will never be forward. But if if advancements are made to me, I, I cannot guarantee anything, I cannot guarantee anything.
Probably after the advent of social media, there is no sin that has spiraled like how Xena has spiraled
with the advent of social media, and we are a nation blessed and cursed with our Innovation Summit simultaneously, it's a blessing, a boon and it is a liability and a calamity.
Because at the same time, we forward in a good message, and at the same time Haram is taking place.
So the Quran says that only at houfy Beatty ha She seduced him in whose house he loved, which only shows you the complexity of the whole thing. It's like she's been good to me. I want to reciprocate a favor, but she's now abusing it.
Now, even though Josie has written and I'm just highlighting what was the success of use of his brothers wanted to extinguish his life and they wanted to drop him. I told you what was the secret of lachemann alayhi salatu was Salam honesty, and don't involve yourself in things that don't concern you. What was the secret of the great giant Imam Abu hanifa Don't be proud to share what Allah has given you. And don't be shy to learn from what Allah has given others. You can learn from a kid my brother, you can learn from anyone
but have the approach of learning. You learn from anyone you will profit from anyone
say the use of a Salam ebonylife Josie quickly just to show his challenges to make it more challenging number one, the time that this fitna came on him he was young.
He was an old and aged, you know some are old but not cold.
He was young. He was active. He was in his prime number one. Number two, he was unmarried. It exacerbates it. Number three, he was in a foreign land. A lot of people at home are quite disciplined but once they bought the flight, they just relaxed the golf. They relax restrictions in Safari.
in Safari, you must take it easy.
Now everything goes easy. I am amazed. I've seen so many people particular of prayer particular of halaal conscious of things.
But once they bought the flight all goes, all goes. We don't become judgmental on any person, but it just becomes relax it just become. Surely we have legislated concession. There's no doubt about it. I must qualify my statement. Our Deen is pragmatic. Our faith is user friendly. Allah has given us different options who are jitterbug wama. Zhang Li Li confit de nim in her Raj. Allah hasn't made faith complex. Allah has made it simple and user but we need to govern ourselves by the limitations of Deen and we opt within the parameters of the legislated concessions. It works within those parameters and we got to stay within that till Cabo de la fenetre Cabo so satana use it was in a
foreign land and when you're in a foreign land, you are a bit more susceptible. You are a bit more vulnerable because you in a foreign land. Then the woman that had invited him wasn't a regular woman wasn't a casual woman wasn't a common woman, the minister's wife. Well, to that woman, Sabina Jamal, she was a woman of stature. She was a woman of wealth. She was a woman of beauty. You've been through all the summer in your life. You've been through all these challenges in your life. You sit in right on top and just when you think probably it's over yours such a daunting challenges falls in your lap. And then Allah has given him this amazing beauty and Subhanallah it can only be in the bee
that can restrain himself to such an extent. Carla Marie de la Karla Miranda line he in a war of being a Santa mathway the Quran explains it you know this is a bit of a like a business class seat so I'm quite comfortable. I hope you guys are comfortable.
I don't know.
Allah uses two expressions well as per the ham met to be wahama Bihar. Allah says this woman came with a dedicated agenda. She wasn't going to take no for an answer. Well if you know Arabic grammar, Word of God hum must be she passionately wanted him. She passionately wanted him. As the Quran said
wirkkala nice swattin Phil Medina, Tim Mara atolla zz Imperato z z to raw widow Fatah. nasig. Cada Shaka Hubba Eva da boo fishy la fetal Bihar. This woman is in fact you ated over use of she's head over heels. There was a youngster who one day came to me
three weeks before he was getting married. I have to get married and you got to perform my silent Nick. I can't wait for three weeks. Like relax, brother. Relax. You know the gentleman went to the gym. I was just browsing through my phone nine. I seen it this afternoon. So he's in the gym. Are you the trainer? This is Yes, sir. You see, this is my fiance I would like to impress her, which machine should I use? He says really you want to know go outside the ATM machine you'd rather use that rather
than on impress him it's illegal all this go outside as an ATM you'll either use that
now in December, we're in Toronto. So making use of the amenities at the hotel. So it was quite off big time with you know, otherwise people's mind run in different directions. My wife was with me also Mayor Ed.
So anyway, we said let's just go we had a nice meal. And we said let's just go there a little bit to the gym just was two of us. It wasn't peak time or anything. We don't really get to see these places. So I got on the treadmill trying to burn few calories Not that I've really achieved anything. But anyway, I'm like Yala maybe I'm in the dark or maybe that's what's happening or I'm not up to speed. So I don't know but I'm sharing what I seen. So the this thing has a whole keypad
with whole YouTube so like you burn in calories and you Your mind is running somewhere else and I'm like this is how the world has become the world has been I literally heard a youngster say man, I need a phone why I need to go toilet
no no I'm like What are you saying? No, I won't able to dedicate if I don't have a phone. No man you're not real man. Exactly. Am I you know what I go through constipation if I don't have a gadget in my hand.
That's something I heard myself.
What are the two Latinos who are fee Beatty? Ha?
The Quran says she seduced not. Now look at the beauty of the Quran. Allah says Allah, Muhammad to be she had a dedicated agenda. Then Allah said the use of also had a bit of an inclination. In basic Arabic, if the inclination and the
Passion of both were the same. Then Allah would have said, well aka Hama,
Hama, they both mutually had passion for each other. But Allah made a distinct difference. Allah said she had a passionate intention. He had a gentle inclination, a gentle thought. And this is not a demerit. This is a feather in the cap of the novel. Why? The Anima say the thought that crossed the heart of Yusuf was totally human and natural. Pretty much like how a fasting person would probably think of cold water while fasting.
So you fasting it's a hot day, what is the thought of water crosses your mind? Then somebody comes in gives you water? No, I don't want it. No, but you were saying, Yeah, I was saying, but how dare I drink? Doesn't mean if I was thinking of what I'm going to drink it. I was just saying, you know, what if you it's a hot day and you think of water. And I often give this example to the youth in Madras and they like it. And they always think ministry will study you know, you, you drop our hopes, but it's so real. I say to them, these youngsters you have this fantasy and this excitement I'm going to get married. And this is the naivety of youth you know before you get married. We're
going to work our marriage out properly. myself my wife gonna do everything with mutual Matura but we're not going to be fighting at all. Like so the old man didn't know how to do it you you got the edge over.
And I say them I say the following into that. I said it's no more than the excitement that grabs you while you're fasting. By this notice if after you've done this before, straight when I break my fast I love this. definitely enjoy sad time. So you shopping and you going on the Spree and you enjoying yourself. But when you break the fast, probably manage one to half a glass of milk and you're done. And you're done. My brother and I'm getting married next week. Count down, count down. What happened? You're not married? No marriage.
Okay, no, no, it's good. humble. What's it my brother? Allah said Hama. He had the natural thought. Right? And that's human.
well Hama, Bihar Lola Robert ohana, Robbie. Immediately he said, Muhammad Allah, may Allah protect any land to the door. He bolted to the door and the scholars right so dutifully, he ran to the door, she ran to the door, both ran to a common door, but for use of that was the door to paradise. And for the minister's wife that was the door to hell, because Yousuf was running from Xena she was running towards you know
how the one ama right fee surah T, ama loon Wahid Wolfie botany makani from a Yama St. Luffy. Apparently a common action, but internally worlds apart worlds apart, both dashing in a common direction to a common door, but one run in from the Act and the other running towards the act.
So study the life of use of alayhis salaam, my brother, and you will realize and you know, what's the beauty and this is mentioned in
that when you forsake something which you love, which is sinful for the pleasure of Allah, then apart from the reward that Allah has promised more than often Allah returns that forbidden thing to you in a halal form.
More than often, not always, depending on what nature and circumstances are. And there's an incident to this year, after the occasion of the BIA after the occasion of her day BIA before the conquest of Makkah. nebulae Salatu was Salam was planning an invasion on Makkah, because of the treachery of the infidels of Makkah in breaking and committing a breach in the trust. So there was a document that was signed up which was going to hurt a BIA. And in that they were very stringent conditions that were imposed on the Muslims and the visa Some are blind to all your blind to all to the extent that when the visa some wrote the document, this is an agreement between Mohammed Salah Larissa and the
co founder of Makkah, they said stop there in there, we don't accept you as a prophet. So please omit all your titles. You can call yourself yourself Mohammed the son of Abdullah and don't give yourself fancy titles Muhammad the Prophet of Allah, this was the arrogance with the Quran said if de la la Vina cafaro ficolo ob Haman Tamiya hammy yet alija helia in piano kuranda Samia has been referred to the same thing. No, no, no Don't come give us your offensive. You can write the if you say new Mohammed the Prophet of Allah salam, listen, we tear up the document.
Nobody says I'm told the Sahaba the deleted just delete my name because they insisting that I must write Mohammed sama zinoviev Allah we know we're not going to buy into this. We're not going to give into this. Yeah, this is now pushing the boundaries too much. They really pushing the limits too much. I mean, we are
Green with them. They've denied as oma, we've agreed. Then we had the room of the assassination of Othman. Okay, that was intercepted. And that didn't happen. And many things that happened and all this was then nipped into the bud. Right now If man was in Makkah, he was sent as an envoy. Basic courtesy and diplomatic ties is you don't harm an envoy, because then you break communication. And he was in in Makkah, rumors headed that said now earthman was assassinated. And that's when nobody says him sat down beneath the tree and the duration of Muslim Sharif 1400 Sahaba sat down beneath the tree. Can you visualize momentarily, the richness of that gathering 1400 Sahaba. And each one
came and put his hand in the blesser hand of Nabila Salam. And he said, We will fight tooth and nail to avenge the death of Othman and nobody sallallahu wasallam said unto me,
or my Sahaba You are the best 1400 that inhabit the entire planet today.
The whole world there's nobody as noble as you. La Casa radi Allahu momineen if you buy your own Nakata de shujaa la casa de la de la Neil mo amini na, Indeed Allah was pleased and happy with the believers when they pledged allegiance to you. For Lima Murphy Polo obey Him Allah knew the sincerity of the hearts, then zealous Sakina de la him Allah allowed tranquility to descend. And then in Surah, Mohammed, when Allah made reference to the VOA salam, Allah said Mohammed Rasulullah Mohammed says, I'm the Messenger of Allah. And the scholars say the reason why Allah referred to nimbyism in detail here is Allah was the responding and retorting to the infidels that you didn't
want to capture my Nabis title in your document. Neither will you love nor will your document remain immediately I gave it full coverage in the Quran which will remain forever
You know people get excited and you must buy the newspaper. Let's see best best pharmacy voted best butchery voted best this year. I just see this article. I don't know. Yeah, I did have a look at it. Mashallah you buy good and the next day you in the toilet and you can find tissue use that same one the best pharmacy and, and the best excited one that's a one is going down to the loo. That's that's the honor of this world. And that's the honor of the world. That is how flimsy and how fickle The world is. That's how fickle it is. There's nothing stable to it. You eat a century You're a hero. Next day you build out your zero.
That's it. There's nothing, nobody if you're a celebrity and you think that you then on top, you're fooling yourself. You're fooling your friends. You're fooling yourself and you fooled in your fans. There's nothing to it. It's fickle. It's flimsy, it's not concrete, it's not established, you age Your days are over. Look at our pious scholars when they age Allah gives more people he died when the old people die defeat when they're all more than when they were young.
So so you're gonna use of allihies salatu salam, absolute restrain total taqwa one incident I want to share with you highlighting the same two qualities. What was the secret if you have this then this is the glory that Allah will give you to to drive and to impress and to elucidate and to expound on the same thing, that if we bring this to my brother, the future head is great. We have to restrain ourselves. But that's the challenge. That is the time. That is the challenge. Per the hussy No sir Who are Tanga zamana Ancona shuru kar diya Abdel cosa Tana Bay parada has no say Hua Tanga, Samana, Ancona, shuru kar diya Abba de la cosa Donna lakyn Nagar ankoku to unsend number Chai mumkin

So you cannot stray your gaze and restrain your fantasy doesn't happen. It just doesn't happen, because this is connected to each other. Once your gaze is roamed automatically, your heart will fantasize.
Almost Elmira de la Miranda, a great woman in the annals of Islamic history.
Who was she and her name was a hint, but she was better known as oma Salma couldn't get beyond Miss alma sumangala Vitaly heliconia
Her father was jawatan min edworthy lerab, a very famous and wealthy Arab man. He was so wealthy Hata and know who you call the who's rockin. He was known as the rocket zaraki was if you traveling with him, you don't have to take travel expenses.
You know he will take care of everyone. And there are others if you're traveling with you must take double.
this guy when he comes he always forgets his wallet.
Always when he came in, you know what? I brought the wrong card man, email you Okay, man? Yeah, we'll sort out.
law when you travel, you discover a lot of things. When you travel, you discover and I will fit. You know when I was telling you our faith and our Deen is user friendly reading the books of the scholars say and the fuqaha the Judas have written this year, that if you traveling as the group,
then you should not fast if the majority are not fasting, even if it's Ramadan, and it's a concession because the Quran gives you a concession. It's obviously better to fast in Ramadan. While you're traveling. It's permissible to stall. You're fast. We're in Gundam Allah suffering fire. I don't mean a young man or her you read the law will be como Leo savella. Yuri to be kumala awesome. You know, I am reminded of a joke. We bought it in Dubai and flying to Canada. It's a 14 hour flight. I realized the flight was too long. And after we land they still seven hours so I'm not going to observe the fast oil delay. There was a brother Mashallah he had courage, and he decided to
fast Anyway, good luck, Mashallah, I didn't know he was fasting. But he observed the fast. After 810 hours, he comes to me, brother, but in Dubai, the sun is set already, isn't it? I said, Brother open up the shutter and the sun will stay you're in your eyes. He said, But isn't they we started already. I said, my friend, I know why I said what it is not based on where you started. It's where you currently are. Anyway, the fuqaha have written that if you traveling as the group, and the general people are not fasting, then you know, in your group and you have a common Kitty, you share him, then our motto, as hobby he must clean.
If the general people are not fasting, then don't create, you know, don't don't upset the rhythm, join the group blend in with the group. So that means at the same time you're not having surgery and if they are and lunch and supper. In other words, it's better for you then to accommodate the group and not fast. And if everybody's individually it's at your discretion. Furthermore, the fork I have also written that if a person
is old, he's eight. He's frail, he's weak, he's senile, and he's choosing to fast. And he observes the fast.
And in Ramadan, he forgets that he's fasting. And there's a young man who forgot that it's the first day of Ramadan he started eating, you must stop the young men immediately and tell him Hey, brother, you fasting because I cannot remain in which is like the law. And the Forgotten if it's an old an elderly man, and you know his age and it's challenging for him and he has dementia and loss of memory and he starts eating, leave him to eat and after he ate anybody you fast in
the fuqaha have written this year, because he at that stage he didn't know so for him it was permissible. So leave him within his concession because of his crisis. I'm saying look at the practical nature of our Deen. Look at the practical nature of our Deen.
Our Deen is so amazing. The concessions provided are so amazing. When saving it Chateau de la Marina was out with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in a campaign and then her pendant broke. The head is in Buhari and Ayesha Jelani said I'm not gonna move that I don't find it. You know you jump in the car and the kids are they come quickly. And then everybody's in but Hello the handbag is muscle.
And they use cream.
They use cream otherwise you'll be looking for that and back.
Now you just just wait and then it's like okay, I'll buy you a new handbag.
And eyeshadow the long run has said that she come to Allah ultimacy I started looking for it. And because I won't move now visa someone move and because nobody doesn't move the care of the group on move. And now one pendant is costing the whole group nobody moving.
And nobody is going to dare say anything to nobody's awesome. So everybody comes to our worker, our worker, please. You got to speak to your daughter about the Atlanta police you you got to negotiate this Yeah, I mean, fair enough. We appreciate he lost abandoned and we got to find this but we need to move we need to move. So I look at this then we want to read you know what this glossy magazines and we want to read the stars and how beautiful and how amazing their life is. You look at the life of Sahaba Lamia Islam was perfect was natural. And Satan Amara, the alano said
can we get a bad hoonah bit bitty? I used to see referred to as harbor nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I used to see the companions of Nabi sallallahu Sallam
Having a casual moment, and they would hurl melon pills at each other.
You know your kids you play Polo fighting.
I used to see the Sahaba, hurl melon peels, and said Narmada said, I fancy a man who at home can be a kid, he can be a child, he can hop around. And when it's crunch time, he instantly becomes a man, strong and resilient. And he goes out and he challenges the world. In Nila yorgi booni qunar rajul Fi beta he mithila sabie now with the other way around when a man or woman with a child outside
so coming back to the incident, we are digressing and moving off track and too many things are coming in and I want to you know, focus on the point but nonetheless, whatever Allah puts in the mind, I believe is also of reflection and introspection. So we were speaking of almost Santa Maria la Miranda, she's this amazing woman. Her father is duardo min Edward ihlara. He is this very wealthy man who was known as the Rocky. Rocky literally means provision for the traveler.
Her husband, Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah acid, Abdullah Shanti, Sabina in Islam amongst the only people who accept that Islam, when almost Mr. de la Miranda and her husband Abdullah Abdullah said accept Islam. At that time the hostility of Makkah is really great. So nobody said Allah alayhi wa sallam then tells them to migrate to a senior and they migrate to ever senior woman insha Allah number Islami on Miss alma zoji ha ha tahajjud Parisian woman with Allah Subhana Allah Hema me Nicola Hama users Zillow sama syllabub philomela Bertha willamina when Amira data they both accept Islam and great challenges, great challenges upon them not honeymoon, they have to migrate
immediately after accepting Islam. So they migrate.
I just mentioned that incident I was saying about that youngster, May Allah give us you know stability today today. youth are so clumsy, so careless, so negligent. So the youngster comes to me and he says, I need you to perform the nickel quickly. So I said brother Wait, wait just give us three three minutes is not longer than three weeks we'll pass and he will finally I kind of give him the time to wait he waits. He gets married. And in two weeks thereafter he comes back with a greater passion to divorce then he had to marry her three weeks ago.
The same youngster comes back to me what the greatest I have to do I know I have to this woman is no it's I said brother thing for yourself. Sit down man. This is not furniture man. This is not an item you buying and selling man. This is not bartering. This is not exchanging understand this is an honor of a person. This is the integrity of a person. The hijo de la de wasallam said you have made legal benefiting from your spouse through the word of Allah. Understand what it entails, understand the challenges.
But this is unfortunately the norm and this is how it has become May Allah protect us and preserve our marriages wasafi up so oma Selma and her husband, they go to embassy in Europe when they get their news filters in Kenya, that things in Makkah have settled and you know what now hostility has settled. So it's now conducive to come back. So they decide for God that almost no matter was owed to her mentally Atilla Ed, they said, Okay, if that's the case, they come back is that come back, like hop on the next flight. Come back is traveling. It's a long journey. It's tedious. It's challenging. It's climate. It's hot. It's distant Camelback. It's really really challenging. Just
today in terms I was telling the students because we did about mount you know, the the place we said no Musashi salatu salam at receive revelation mountune Mount Sinai years ago Alhamdulillah I had the opportunity to travel there, and we climbed the mountain on Camelback to reach the center of the mountain, which local Bedouin stole us is 3000 odd steps 3000 odd steps climbing the mountain right to the top on Camelback. We climbed it for three hours to get to the right top to find the precise location give or take in West eterna musala salatu salam had conversed with Allah and he had received revelation
and obviously we're not so you know used to write in camel unfortunately unfortunately. And you know you're traveling on Camelback for days on so they come back to my good luck in Saran Masha Allah He Dune and Amano Mia la mina berencana mobile and fee when was the battle at whatever Muslim una de Islami Hamza Warhammer but kubelet min Qureshi he met in October 15 Allah Mashallah Guna Fatah v Bill muslimeen What are we read him while at the boom embarrassing Amanda Donovan became in public in the Delica arena. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam muhuali Leah's hobby he will hijra el Medina so they come back only to
discover that there was a short stent in which there was a bit of you know what grace and respect and ease and then the aggression intensified only to come back and say we were there it was more easy and now we come back and it's got worse and that's the time that he did it to Medina started so Nabi sallallahu wasallam Toma Salima and her husband you people can move to Medina as well.
Remember what were the two qualities that that bless Satan our use of what was the secret taqwa and savoir, taqwa and Saba taqwa and savoir. And so yeah, we have it this couple is married. And immediately they have to contend and have to migrate to a senior, they barely get there and they come back, only to come here and realize you have to move on again. Sometimes you've got to change homes. And and, and it's like no, when you finally find a house, then I'll come back to the marriage. So then I'm not interested.
I often say that by enlarge today, couples have a house they just need to make a home. The old folks when they got married, there was no house no home and they made both. Today averagely, our house is found all their assets made a home that also has become difficult. A house is found just make a home, make a home that's it.
You don't have to cook for your enlace cook for your partner you don't have to support anyone else support your partner love with Mahabharata and understanding that's it. You happy we happy we call it today.
So then they migrate but almost no matter the Alanna said my migration wasn't a common migration wasn't an easy migration. You know, you get to the airport. And then all you have a hiccup probably you know what your ticket that you have was a was on the system, and then it got deleted or the there's one digit that didn't match your passport. And somebody can get finicky and it can get under your skin. So the surname is there, but there's one digit added on and now it's, it's you know, contacting this one or contacting that one of probably you supposed to have a book in there and you have a coupon and the coupon is missing or something, something of that nature. And it causes
really, you know, great stress and problems. She says we live in we live in Makkah we on the outskirts of Makkah, myself, my husband and my lead my son, my husband put my son on the camel
and I mounted and my husband is holding on the reins
and we're just about to leave Baka Ronna we were spotted by our my my tribe,
the tribe that I belong to bundle acid. So they come to my husband and they say in Punta Cana Allah enough seek for my bedroom, Radhika Javi where he have been tuna. Listen, you can go where you want to but your wife, she's a girl of our tribe, that that's our girl. That's our daughter you're not going to take our daughter with, you're not going to take our daughter word. When does our only mean who intisar and my tribe wouldn't reason they wouldn't apply logic. They would argue with my husband, and they literally separated me physically separated me from my husband. My husband negotiated but to no avail. sober, sober, sober, taqwa, see what Allah gives her in the end beyond
comprehension. beyond my mind beyond your mind, zoji integer halal Medina, Ferrara medini, my husband had to take a decision at that time, a friend of mines was fine flying back, and he hopped onto the flight from Malaysia. And he's telling me when he bought it, then the entire family bought it. And then the his youngest child got sick, and the airline by aviation rules wouldn't fly the sick child. So he says while the flight is boarded now, at the last moment, we are at to disembark myself and my wife and my other three kids were born and they had to go ahead. Now these are challenging situations, I was flying from London and coming back, a child walking into the flight
fell and got hurt, and the child was injured and because of that the child couldn't travel and security reasons the baggage has to be taken out and blah, blah, blah is another two hours on the tarmac. But this wasn't all those complications. I'm on my camel. My family comes, they insist they separate me from my husband, my husband had to make a choice for the preservation of his deal. And he moves on. He takes the camera And off he goes. If that was bad that we separate it, just then my husband's stripe COMM And my husband's stripe starts arguing with my tribe and they say listen, that's your daughter, but that boy is us. That's our blood. That boy belongs to us. That is our
tribe so you can have your daughter and you can keep her and she says Thumma they after they start pulling my son My Drive and my husband's drive physically in front of my eyes. hattah Hello ruya who they dislocate and dislodge his arm.
And I'm like, okay, whoever wants to keep the child keep the child. But please don't hurt my child, but to no avail. What happened to say that I Moosa said my use of it.

hacky mama used to say one of the avenues of bringing discipline into yourself is to address your own weaknesses in your talk, so that it creates a guilt within you and you start implementing what you advocate. So I say what I say so that I can feel guilty of my own self.
So they literally dislodge his arm, and my husband's tribe, they take my son away, and she says, Wolfie Leviathan, was it enough. See mama Zapata. shamli wahida 10 fareeda it was a matter of minutes and my whole world turned around an hour ago. in simple language, myself, my husband and my child in a common direction leave in Makkah and moving towards Medina, and minutes day after my husband alone on his journey to Medina, my son with a dislocated arm sitting at a different tribe, and I am kept in custody by my tribe.
Bhakti to Allah De Luca, Sunnah are one long year past like this. Every day I cried to Allah, Allah you change my destiny, Allah you change my destiny, you Allah, you make an opening for me one long year went like this. One day I was sitting outside and crying like this, some people pass by and they put it my condition they putted. Then they spoke to my tribe. And they said please release this woman release this woman. They then negotiated with my husband's tribe was tofu mom was stopped the full moon, give this woman her child. And finally my child was reunited. Can you imagine that moment when that mom must have hugged that child?
When that mom must have hugged that child, what an emotional moment it was. I embraced my child. This was Alma Selma, who had no clue of what Allah was going to reward her summer worth.
She was not going to become there's no word to describe how honor celebrity is too cheap. It's too low. It's too simple. It's too basic.
I hugged my child, I hopped onto a conveyance and off I left. But look at the cleanliness of that time. Look at the purity of that environment. Look at the fabric of that society. Why am I in Bella to Tenerife. I got to Tenerife just outside Makkah, three kilometers hatherleigh Tito Osman of Natal Ha. And I met her and tell her at that time was not a Muslim, the shaybah from the shape of family. And he said Allah, I've been lucky unto the daughter of
the generous man. I'm like, Yes. And were you off to I'm going to Medina and why to reunite with my husband. And Mama hakea what are you traveling alone? Yes, ma'am. Maha de la la semana Johan I've got nobody. And why wouldn't you wait till you meet someone and travel together?
Because these are the crisis that led to my prolong stay here. What did Earth mandip Natal has a while la hayleigh oturu kooky had wV Almudena by Allah I cannot imagine a female traveling alone all the way from Mecca to Medina on Camelback with her child and there's nobody to aid her a squatter. I'm going to accompany you from year to Medina. But then comes another challenge. Now this is a strange man in a strange woman. But the crisis of the moment is there's nobody else available. There's nobody else available. But what there's almost Santa Marta de la Miranda Jose wala Hema la ke Toronto la mina la arabescato Chroma voila Ashraf Aminu by Allah I have never seen a more pious,
noble and modest men than earthman urbanista ha. I swear by Allah for the days and the weeks that we traveled from Mecca to Medina. The man didn't glanced at me once.
So then how did you stop and resume and sleep couldna either Belladonna Manzella mineral mineral, whenever it was time to halt and also Barry, he will set the camera down. So Maya started Ronnie, then he would move aside for either undersell to unveil he, then I would dismount and take my child off. Then he would take the camel away to a three, tight up, allow me to graze and take care of his own food. I would take care of my food. When it would be time to graze when it would be time to resume. He would come back, set the camera down and then I would hop on he would move aside. And then again when it's time to resume he would
Take the reigns and carry on. This continued for weeks on end without the man making contact to me once
hattah era Bella Chanel Medina when we got to Medina
he was in waiting for an acknowledgement I mean, you know today how many a prime minister can commit and perpetrate how many crimes and offenses and then you part of some welfare work and then it gets full amount of coverage and full media and it's wow you know what welfare work the humanitarian angle of the Prime Minister the government's a helping hand. And and just this, you know, to smoke screen to smoke screen. Hatta Isabella Chanel, Medina, when we got to Medina, he said, xojo ke ha de la Korea with the holy holla barkatullah that Oh, sister, your husband is in this locality you can enter
How did Allah ultimately reward him and her, they went through a journey of suburbia, his life was riddled with suffer as I told you, just briefly, and then piety, and he restrained himself. Allah honored him that at that stage, he was not a Muslim. And Allah blessed him with Eman And there can be no greater compensation for any virtue other than being blessed with Iman. And there can be no greater punishment for any wrong other than being deprived of human.
Nobody can be punished more. I read in one Kitab about protecting the gays right Allah grant me the ability Allah grant everyone the ability, and it's an amazing
quotation. They say Adam, a casa de nezzer coffee in here, cost the other manager sorry,
Adam, it cost the nazzer coffee in here. It's academic, but it's amazing. It's insufficient to say I didn't mean to look, you need to start meaning not to look.
I didn't mean to look, I was just coming out. Once you come out in a place where shots are fired, you got to have your bulletproof vest on.
You got to take cover, you can come out casually in a place where you know what it's it's it's a war zone, you got to take cover. So I read an incident in this particular setup of a person who says that I had this bad habit of Rome in my gaze, and I didn't make much of it. But 30 years later, I realized the elevator got up one morning, and my whole crown was gone from my chest.
I was a half of the Quran. And I didn't make much of what I used to see and do. And 30 years later, on morning, I got up and there was nothing left in my heart. And that's the time I realized there's no greater punishment for a wrong than deprivation of faith. And there's no greater reward for virtue than to be endowed with faith.
And almost Selma, her Savannah taqwa what happened when she then lose this, this very husband with whom she's reunited.
She loses this husband. And she comes to the Vla Salaam that only be over live lost my husband and NaVi sallallahu Sallam said make the Doha Allah home journey female see Betty aloofness, Ira minha, Allah you reward me in my difficulties, and you give me a better replacement. And she says I used to make draw for for reward and as to say better replacement now you're not going to get better than my husband. You're not going to get better than my husband, but I kept on reading the door because that's what I was told I must make the door and I made it till there was a knock on the door. And lo and behold, what was the knock in who was the knock? It was Mohammed Salah lies and proposing to me
from being the wife of Abdullah she became the being the mother of Abdullah she became the mother of the entire oma.
What was the secret to your glory? omo Salma it was taqwa and sabar. The Quran says we're in touch Barrow Taku La Jolla Rakuten K to whom she in Allah habima meluna, Mohit and if you persevere and you have Taqwa and you restrain yourself, the plotting of the enemies will not harm you in any way. In conclusion, I say to you, my brother, and I say to you, my sister, if we look at our life today, at every given moment, it's either a challenge which requires sober or it's a test and a temptation which requires taqwa if we govern our life, and we regulate our life by these two principles and values, perseverance at the time, and the real summaries at the time of affliction, that is the real
stubborn because the Ranima say something very amazing. Everything starts off great.
With the passage of time, or everything starts off small with the passage of time, it becomes big. You know, you, you started off with a coffin and it became a lung infection. And then it got worse and he progressed and it got worse. You know, there was a crack in the wall and you neglected it, and then the entire wall caved in, or there was a leak, and then the whole gutter fell, or there was a problem in the car and you neglected it. And then you know what, there was a whole issue with the engine. So it starts small and it becomes big. But difficulty is such that it starts big and with the passage of time it becomes small. So at the point of affliction, it's at its worst, at its
greatest at his most challenging time. But as time moves on, a person loses a beloved, he cannot imagine speaking, his numb, his lips are sealed. And then there comes a time he can pass by the graveyard and say, Ah, my late brother's very dear, yeah, 15 years ago was a tragic incident. Yeah. But humbler we moved on. That's the kind of strength Allah gives you. Not that he's forgotten his job, brother, or he's forgotten his sibling, but that's life. That is live.
