color answer of bouken ulica do work on your stuff, Lisa can fill out the rock a maroon sakalava labin honorable scholars respected brothers, elders, mothers and esteem listeners over the respective radio stations and receivers. They can be no two opinions on the fact that we are very swiftly making our way towards the AMA. And every new day unveils another prophecy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We speak about promiscuity that has become the order of the day. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has made mentioned in the narration of Hakeem that people will indulge blatantly brazenly in immorality and promiscuity that a person who will muster the courage
to tell the man that listen, brother, you're doing what you're doing. But this is not in keeping with good mannerism in good values. Low now. Hi, Danny. Can you kindly excuse yourself from the pathway and don't be so brazen about your own, go to the site and do whatever you want to the person who will muster the courage to tell the person to move aside? He would be like the Abubakar of that time. He would be like the Abubakar of that time. We see the rebellion of children happen in day in and day out. We see so much dissension and division amongst us. Just two days ago, a good friend of mines was visiting from California, a scholar. I had spent three Ramadan's there back in the early
2000s, late 90s. So we have developed a great relationship. So we were just chatting and he was updating me and keeping up to speed with with events and developments there. It's been a period that I haven't been to that site in in California. He said recently, there was a janazah that was brought, an elderly man had passed on, his two sons came and they standing outside. So we addressed them and we said, Please come in and assist in the rituals of guzzle for your dad. And we went in in anticipation that they would come 15 minutes, 20 minutes, half an hour passes by, he just mentioned this to me yesterday, and they wouldn't come in. So we opened the door, and we went out and said,
Please, your father's corpse and body is lying here. So they said, you know, we, myself and my brother, don't speak for 12 years. If he's coming to wash, I won't wash and if he goes, I won't come
12 years, we're not speaking to the extent that they couldn't swallow their differences momentarily to respect the dead body of their father
is that we tried to convince them that understand this is not how you deal with the body of your late father. So every prophecy of the messenger sallallahu wasallam stares us in our eyes, but probably there's one that we have spoken about less comparatively. And for some strange reason. Allah has put it in my mind today to address this. Probably elections looming as well. There is a tie and there's a relevance to that. And that is one of the prophecies the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said either was siddell Umbro, Isla de la, one of the signs of tiama ease and the undeserving people will embrace posts from a micro to a macro from a domestic to global, from
institutions to political posts. Each one will be buying and competing and saying listen, put me in office, give the reins to me. I have skill I have. I have muscle, I have cloud. Yet when you will look at their lives, there won't be a fiber of morality in them. I'm not profiling or microscopically analyzing everything, anyone. I'm talking on a general note. We have talks on the science of Yama, and we speak about the consumption of alcoholism, and drugs and related evils, and it's imperative. I'm not trivializing the need to address this. But when we look at the signs of tiama There is also mentioned that people will come into prominent posts, but they won't have
anything to lead the Ummah they will have no muscle or clout or strength to guide the ship of this oma.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the Hadith is in Buhari said
As a follow me along who said during the messenger sallallahu wasallam time, I could deal with anyone if I needed to enter into a transaction, if he was a believer, his faith would compel him to be candid, honest and transparent. I didn't need to do any checks and balances any references on a man is a Muslim, it's fine. Today my brother and forgive me and I'm the first person that doesn't deserve the post that I'm sitting here. It's not sufficient if he's a Muslim noise it's sufficient if he imbibes the Quran in his chest in bosom noise it's sufficient he has the Fed have been a pogrom noise, it's sufficient if he has any knowledge or any diploma to his degree, you need to look
at each case individually and see the merits of the case. There is no longer any qualification in the life of a person or any suppose that association to nobility that can sanction the activities of people. In fact, I often say And may Allah guide me in what I say. Many people associate themselves to pious people, only to endorse the unsavory activities
many people associate No no, He's good. He's great. He's got affiliation association with so and so person for say, if I ignore your mom or your loved one who says that during the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, I could deal with anybody in Canada muslimah if he was a believer, his faith, his Eman his consciousness of his creator, Allah in He is known as pseudo Ron de esta funing. Allah hain is shown at the
moment you will see a woman you're only known when you look at the galaxy of Sahaba and this is the one and only taco I can govern a person. You have a you have a camera, you have security, you have a monitor, you have a police force. But the question is who monitors the police who police's the police? Who's the Guardian over the Guardian, I read an article in one of the African states that the anti corruption unit was the most corrupt.
The anti corruption unit was the most corrupt.
The Sahaba This is the concluded verse of the 11 Jews. It's the first page of Surah Hood intercede Earth money under this ayah with reference to Buhari the quotation of delight now Bertha v Allahumma is mentioned look at when a person feels his creator Sahaba when they would change their clothing. There are different opinions This one is the seat of the bus or the Alon Omar, they would literally crouch down and bend forward and cover themselves, concealing their private organs out of modesty and morality and bashfulness that when I'm removing my clothing, my private area has been exposed to a law again to get the beauty of the Quran that that love woman so to whom, when Adam and Eve ate
from the forbidden tree, and the first injunction of prohibition of eating something unlawful dates back to Jenna dates back to the internet, there was no other injunction other than don't eat. So the law says the ruling of abstaining from forbidden food goes right back to gender. When our parents were told to stay away from from history and they ate the immediate result of it was but that they loved no man so to whom their private area became exposed. Cyber, Jelani and writes in Arabic we refer to private area as so if you do a little etiology and linguistics of the word. So art is the plural of the word so attune. So atone is from the word sir Yazoo, which loosely translates as evil
look at the beauty of the Arabic language. Why is the private area known as so? the English alphabet soup Masahiko because revealing it exposing it would be not palatable would not be pleasant to a man of sanity and integrity, a person of morality he will be uncomfortable. How many of us frequent the gym it's just the norm. It's just the way it happens. You're going to change Rome and that's that's how it happens. I haven't been there. I've been told no, no, your mind starts running.
It's just casual. It's okay. There's nothing much about it. You know, you just learn a lot at the high end. Well, I may yet our faith into words is a faith of simplicity and morality. If somebody asks you in a passing will tell me Islam, but Islam in two words, it's a faith that is simple. simplicity. We we do things we get married also, we have functions also. But it's simple. And we do things but it must be done with morality. So anyway, the Sahaba out of the consciousness of Allah, they would drop down and they would crouch.
And then Allah revealed the verse that there's no need to impose on yourself such stringent measures. Surely even when you conceal or you cover your private organs to alight still exposed, but look at their consciousness in the 18 Jews in Surah Noor. Look at this, what did he say 5 million Monrovia Lana said and the focus of my talk is on the signs of trauma with undeserving people, and that we don't have a succession plan. And even if we have succession plans, I'm afraid those that are coming on to the seed, from our organizations, to our institutions, to political arenas to the global stage. Just look at the world has become barren, it's just become dry. It's just normal
meaning there's no more value. You just you just pry or probe or scratch or you eavesdrop into the life of any person. And you will be appalled. You will be appalled to see what's behind the scenes. the consciousness of Allah the alertness of Allah, when they used to sit and eat, so each person would have that level of consciousness of Allah. The crippled Sahabi said no, I cannot eat with the healthy Sahabi Why? Because I have a disability and I occupied the seat of the healthy Sahabi said we cannot jointly eat with a cripple, because due to his disability, he'll arrive late probably we have half eaten the food.
The visually impaired said I cannot eat with the scientists, because I have no measure I can consume more than my allotted the sighted Sahabi said I cannot consume commonly from with a blind Sahabi simply because he will eat less. the healthiest hobbies that I cannot eat with a sick one. He doesn't have an appetite. His health is not good. And this was the kind of stuck why in the life of each person that I'm not infringing, encroaching, violating offending. You can snap a man you can tell him a dirty word. You can offend him You can demoralize him and just walk on it means nothing. Allah reveals the verse laser Maharaj Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,
Allah and forsaken Anita kulu nimbu de como my Sahaba we acknowledge your taqwa. And we appreciate your consciousness, but there's no need to exert yourself to that level and cause pain and uneasiness and stress your relationship out Jose hryvnia Monrovia, Milan who said during the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, I could speak to anyone deal with anyone you want to buy, it's fine. If he was a believer, his faith would compel him to honestly, if he would just if he was a disbeliever society will expose him. today's society will give him amnesty, society will have a him society will give him protection. That is where you just become with things when normal things
become abnormal, abnormal becomes normal.
If he was in disbelievers society will expose him is that time has moved on. And now I am very selective with whom ideal law in law Sudan and Sudan and Sudan and and then he went on to say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a time will come that honesty loyalty fidelity will become such a rare commodity that it will stand out whether you call an Effie Benny funan Rajan and Amina people will travel the length and breadth of continents to come and meet a man. But as I've traveled to come and meet you, I've been told that Mashallah you honest.
You know, you've got a skill, you have an art, you have charisma, you have a gift, people come to you, people will travel continents to come and meet them. And listen, I've heard that Mashallah, you've never spoken a liar I've been, I've been dying to see you. I've been really anxious to see you. I really am. I've never seen an honest man in my life and is the first person I met him. That is how rare honesty loyalty will become Hata yoga and Ebony Fulani and Rajat and Amina. So tragically, we find ourselves in a situation like this, where those that have come into position and power by and large, they might be few that are the exception and May Allah preserve them and protect
them and guide them. But on a general note on a general note, I'm afraid this sign of tiama will undeserving people have taken pose stares us in our eyes.
During the reign of American Abdulaziz, the second Romer who brought a new definition to Justice League he is the rich legacy interfering cubbies. There is an incident mentioned that during the reign of Ahmed Abdul Aziz, a shepherd came with his flock to the well and while he was bringing his flock, a wolf came by and the wolf and the sheep are drinking from a Commonwealth and apostle by said matar is
Allah has was shot. But this is strange. This is unheard of. When did you see sheep and wolves during from a common? Well, he said Hina is de la hora de mamula when the shepherd made peace with his creator than the creation make peace amongst themselves when the shepherd made peace with his creator, so Omar Abdul Aziz, his era was just an error like you cannot believe and imagine, when he took post, we need to post and he took office, and the if the Karima that I recited alludes to the same fact that Satan now moves I said to his people, on Amazon, he told me start a new building, he was bureau Easter no Billa seek help from Allah was Spiro and persevere. Often in the Quran, the
remedy to crisis, Allah says is persevere. today for a young man the option of hanging on persevering give it time Let's wait let's see, it's just not an option. I need to have it done now do or die make or break on or off it needs to happen or not. Is that a no seek the help of Allah wa Spiro was spirou just hang on, restrain yourself give it time. Don't be so emotional. Don't be so impulsive. Don't dissolve. Just Just give me time the marriage will stabilize. In the land belongs to Allah, you restore harmony or SHA.
Allah will inherit the land to whomsoever He wishes will have to deal with the pain and the noble outcome of those who feel alone. So then, when you say Talu the Nam in public and Tatiana woman birdie magic aterna or Moses, we were we suffered pain difficulty prior to your delegation prior to your Prophet would and even post your Prophet would say that musala salaam responded by saying, as
a leaker I do work on various stuff believe it is highly possible that Allah will annihilate and destroy your phone and your enemy. And then Allah will give you power and authority. And remember power is never the aim for younger Okay, Fatah loon, allow us to see how do you manage yourself in the seat of power. It's easy my brother to criticize and condemn and say those that are they are doing this or that. But when you find yourself in the position, I give a simple analogy. And I'm just using this because we all could identify a daughter in law could moan and groan and object and frown. My mother in law is like this is like that, only for her to come into that position. And I'm
afraid she repeats the same blunders if not worse. Today you're an employee you can have a mouthful of your employer is arrogant is obstinate is proud. He thinks the world Allah turns the tables and Allah brings you in the power and suddenly you employed and you're running an operation and you managing the floor. And there are so many people under your wing and under your control. To you momentarily pause and think and ask yourself how am I dealing with myself? Remember the Allahu anhu is probably the greatest point of reference that anybody can look to. When it comes to a man in power. signal. Amara Yolanda is walking while he's walking a whisper hits him and what's the whisper
and ameerul momineen manda affable Minka Amara after all, you are great. Look at the people around you look at how this salute you look how they honor you. There has to be something to you. So he feels that inflation of his ego. We all get those whispers but look at how slowly they reacted to deflate the ego. we entertain it we fantasize it we develop on it and hence we develop the spiritual cancer within us. Amara Ilana calls up an urgent meeting. People converge and congregate in the masjid. It's brimming to capacity. He said I just want to mention to you people something about my life, which probably is unknown to many of us. In my early days pre Islam as a kid, I was a shepherd
and I used to take the sheep and end of the day for grazing the flock. They would give me a handful of dates. And that was my remuneration for the day.
Omar, what's the relevance? What are you talking my brother? You know, apples with bananas Make sense? We busy we engage together in the masjid. He said as I was walking by came into me. And I thought the only way to deflate my ego is to make the people known make the people aware of that aspect of my life which was simple, which was basic, which is not known to anyone. If I've wasted your time, my apologies. But for me, I have nipped it in the bud. I have addressed my pride and my arrogance. Allahu Akbar. What did he say when he was in his fatal illness and he was about to leave the world.
And he said, I rotate my gaze and I don't see anybody who I can pass this reins over to. I really don't know who I can And plus, I really don't know who I can trust. Look at the irony today. A man takes office he takes position. member, police whatever it is. He
comes into power. He says no, no, you don't need to do any investigation over me. There's a cloud hanging over his name. There are 10 things that are pending, there is a hold, you know what? report and write up and whatever? And he says, No, no, I am good and I am the right person and I'm candid, say Ethan I used to following his Salaam. When the king calls him out of the jail. He says, No, no, first investigate me.
He is calling upon the investigation. I was put into jail wrongly. That case was shut in close column alpha token era was to not use profanity, people had accused me of immorality, people had accused me that I had done some unpleasant advancements. Can you please prove that case? Can you get clarity on this? Why so tomorrow when I come in office, nobody can have this notion that you can do wrong and corruption and still become a leader? LEAH alhama and neelum appunto bill Ray, are an Allah, Allah d k de la ne. So people will know that the plot of treacherous will never prosper. But if I come into office with a cloud hanging over me, then you will think that is fine. Anybody can
take office, save narmer said I rotate my gaze I don't find any person deserving.
So of the light now, but what about so and so what about so and so what about so and so? He said, Do you know what it takes to be a leader to be a guardian to be a pilot to spearhead this oma?
I just have a thought in my mind objectively digress and I'll come back to this generation is in Muslim Sharif Abdullah bin, so bear with the alano he says my dad called me on the eve of the Battle of Jamal, we're not going into the details of the Battle of Jamal. That's again, my pain. And I say it often in my talks, the oma is not reading a nation whose first revelation was acre read has become nothing to do with Islamic literature and nothing of reading.
We've lost the touch. I was in, in in in Dublin in Ramadan, and we were having surgery there. And one brother told me he says I have done some research on phones and networks and and you know, all the other in the, you know, innovation and technology. And he said one of the most disturbing things of modern technology, and he supported it with all his research, etc. I said you know what, it's time for us to go slow and you need to be easier. Generally. Some people they come with tough questions at the time of eating, Hakim will almost said you must talk gentle and light. Now you sit down to eat you're a visitor and don't ask you what's your opinion on this complex ruling? Let's
digest the food brother. Let's digest the food. Be gentle, be mild, be passive polite, be easy. light on the on the abdomen light on the digestive system, when they use the setting for it dedicate that question at that time. This This time, this moments this opportunity. There's occasions anyway beat as it may. He said that human psychology when when a person receives some disturbing news, probably a tragedy an accident a hiccup glitches snag a death, whatever it is, the mind takes time to digest it settles in your mind. And then you consciously first you deny it, then you embrace it. And then you start responding doesn't there's been an accident, there's been a death. You send out
notifications, you cry, you mourn, you weigh in, you break down. But he said today, our technology is such that we are receiving contradicting messages simultaneously, not allowing our body to settle into any news. So you get in one news of a death and a tragedy, then suddenly you get in a news that a team that you support one, then you get in a news that the currency has dropped again, then you get in the news that your son has excelled. Then you get in a news that you're talking about is about to give birth, then you get in a news that your flight has been delayed. Can you imagine this year it is consumed it has overtaken us. The body doesn't have the capacity. The Psychology doesn't
have the ability to manage this to control this. And this is creating erratic patterns in the mind and the brain.
the article of holly Baga quote often, he said we are a nation blessed and cursed by our innovation. We are a nation blessed and cursed by our innovation. Anyway, Philippines avera delana says my dad calls me on the eve of the battle on the eve of the battle. When you said they were people with with muscle with cloud with vigor was authority who would take in, you know the reins of the oma and the kind of people that will succeed in them will live in up to that mark. He said my boy,
I'm seeing you but I don't think we're going to be making again I'm leaving now.
So just listen to me quickly. There's few things you need to attend to. On the eve the father is calling in five minutes. He writes out his own state. He explains everything. He delegates his son and he signs
With relieved that this boy will execute everything I have entrusted. What was the maturity of the use of that time.
He says to him
for him in October he hung Mila Dini, you know, the thing that haunts me the most on my deaths is going in the path of Allah. He says, I'm going to be martyred generation is in Muslim. He's a devout Companion of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he says, but it's something that leaves me uneasy, and that's my deaths. I have no accolades to my name. I have no credit to my account. I have no virtues and no merit. And yet I am casual and easy about my debts. It's fine, it's easy, it's going doesn't bother much. The messenger sallallahu Sallam said denervation is intermediate Allahumma inni Abu Dhabi camino gouffre with Dane, oh my lord protect me from this believe and from deaths. The
scholars of Hadith, they analyze the gravity of a wrong or the significance of an injunction in relation to where Allah mentions it away Allah capitals it will appease it by was by way of example, Allah speaks about mono theism worship in one Allah and Allah capitals that injunction with kindness to parents and the Quran is brimming with this. waka Dora buka Allah Buddha Illa Yahuwah bill Valley the Sunnah worshiping Allah be kind to your parents. What is mitsouko Benny is La la la buena illallah wa Ville Wylie Dania Santa, when we took the pledge and the covenant from the Israelites that worship none but Allah, them of Assyrian c'est la buena fees in the meaning of nahi a lotta

Allah capitals the prohibition of uttering alive with idolatry that gives you an indication of the gravity of speaking alive, that it has been paired up with such a severe offense. You know, the prophet of Allah is asking Allah, Allah saved me from Cofer and saved me from deaths. I Sahabi causes the messenger sallallahu ism engages in attack
for a day, a proper salatu salam saying that disbelief and debts are on the same level? on the same line? You're asking a lot protection from disbelief I identify and then from deaths in one breath one voice messengers a lot of them said yes, they are together.
The scholars of Hadith May Allah preserve them. The scholars of Hadith read read our Deen and read our idiv.
There's so much written in the books of Hadith. And that is when you appreciate the scholars and that is the preservation of our Deen. They say why when a person has overwhelming depth, and he has commitments and he cannot meet those commitments, he would resort to any measure to generate that revenue, be it legitimate or illegitimate, whether it confine whether it conforms with the legislative teachings of Islam, or it violates the teachings of Islam, whether it's permissible or impermissible, legitimate or illegitimate, whether he has to go to a gambling den and pull a machine and play a slot, or whether he has to go online gambling, whatever it is, as long as I can make that
money and meet my bills, even if I lose my faith in the process.
So he says oh my son, the thing that worries me the most are my debts. And then you must take care of my debts and big money walk the daini will also be sudo su Lucy Healy Bunny, a third and then one third of that for your children for infoed Allah and Marina Shay, if anything is left behind, and this is how you would execute it. And then and then I read this and I cry. And I said I wish and I wish and I wish and I promise you if you take this to heart, this itself is profound. Is that listen my son Time is running out. I'm going it's the eve The battle is starting. The intensity is increasing. I need to move. Please take care. I won't see you again we meet in after. But after I'm

dad You said I must speak to your master. You just want to elucidate and elaborate. Who is your master and what's the reference? Is that oh my son none other than my love.
Imagine leaving behind such a bond. Such a relationship with your Creator that you can tell
Your children are my children. I haven't left behind much in monetary or assets. But I have left a relationship with my Creator. You can call on Him to attend to any of my matches, and he will respond due to the relation I enjoy with him.
All of our law Hema waka to fee karate Min De la cual to young Mola Zubair ecovia han who de novo, by Allah, this was not lip service. This was not a pie in the sky. This was a hard reality when my dad moved on and I attended to the rituals of burial and we took care of it. And then whenever I had any crisis, I just had to say Oh, the Lord of Zubair attend to the affairs of Zubair, an instant divided aid would come to my rescue.
Imagine that relationship you have with your law, the tale in sort
of those two youth analogy daru fraternally Hola, maney Yachty maney Phil Medina, aka Natasha Lukens. Allahumma Wakanda, Abu Masada Wakanda, Abu marsali ha MLG dar with regards to the three which the wall which further straightened up for candelilla mania to remain beneath that wall there was a treasure that belonged to two orphans, and Allah deputed and delegated either
alayhis salam to go and straighten the wall leaves it collapses, and the treasures become exposed and somebody snatches it, but in the Quran says Why did Allah take additional measures to secure insulate protect the treasures? What kind of abou masala ha, the late father was a man who had a relationship with Allah. The late father was a pious man and through the agency and through the piety and the nobility of that man, Allah took care of his children, and Mohammed in the moon katabi his narration is mentioned in the La Jolla for the virtually sunny weather whether the Villa de Allah protects Allah protects by virtue of the piety, the his children and his grandchildren and
often his neighborhood as well.
Anyway, we were speaking about the words of Satan I remember the Allahu anhu he said I rotate my gaze I see nobody deserving.
So then he said to have the light now buzz, do you know what quality is what attributes you need to lead this oma in any capacity? He said, are we human radians in these words, make me cry. Like you don't mean Rudolph in the world. And meanwhile, the surfing mom second minvalue Rebellion. You need somebody who is strong, but he's not harsh. Somebody who is legen who is soft, but he's not weak. Jawad, someone who's generous but not extravagant moosic someone who can withhold but he doesn't Mize those are the qualities that are needed to become a ruler and a man in power and in offers the series same Satan armor, he's walking, he's walking.
He has even a

You know there must be meaning in your walk there mustn't be lethargic in your walk. There must be a believer is one who when he walks you can see he has commitment he has vision he is focused focus that there's an object in his life.
You would you'd be appalled to see how many a youth and how many people can can just pass the day today I fly often and you see prominent high profile corporate business class fly is a man can sit in the plane and play games on his phone. I mean, I know there's a kid in every adult but there's a limit
like like would you not exploit that time to optimum whether you read in whether you research in whether you doing work playing games, like can you digest where this on my has lost the vision of protecting time? Hasn't Buster? He said I seen the Sahaba and if I have to summarize them in one sentence, it would be the following. Tanaka to whom a Shahada hombre he mean who Allah did me they were very tight when it came to time and they were very loose when it came to money. You could get any amount of money from them. You got no time from them today as is the direct opposite. You are the man for money. Yeah, we'll see Don't worry time relax, brother tonight is young. The night is
young. Take it easy what what you what you what you're stressing about it's a Saturday night go with it. Time The online has lost
The focus and the value of time.
Mosquito direct money was one day addressing a panel of scholars. And we he was asked to say some highlights of his late father Mufti Shafi sobre la la, he said my dad when he would use the bathroom in the washroom and relieve himself, obviously, when you are passing the call of nature at that time, you cannot be doing anything or other you should not be doing anything. Because now there is a lot of things happen.
He says in that time, why do you would squat and relieve himself, he would use those moments objectively to wash the water again in the bathroom, because I am sitting I cannot do anything. So additional time doesn't have to be taken out to clean the water again, I am relieving myself and while doing that, I can use the time objectively and take care of this.
Can I have a shower we need focus of time the Quran, or the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam one Hadith of the messenger sallallahu sallam, he said last summer utterback della raesha Let there be no social gatherings post Isha. Today the world is going against this very prophetic teaching because of we just see the crisis and the ripple effects in the world. So the messengers that Allison calls upon us impresses upon us retire to bed early, don't have social discussions, don't entertain, don't chit chat, don't have gossip, don't have all these gatherings and everything is retired to bed early and rise early. It's the direct opposite. The nightlife happens. The shops
are open, the malls are buzzing, the activities are taking place. It's late hours early night and that's what life and the next day is like a cemetery.
Anyway, coming back to the words of American Abdulaziz, we were talking about him and we digress. He's when he took office when say the North American Abdulaziz Rahim Allah took office. It was a tired night the night before, because he had to attend to the funeral of Solomonic deputy Mary. So he returned it to bed there was a butler at the door who would mend the door and he said, Listen, don't allow anybody else in don't allow anybody in. I'm tired, I need to have some, some sleep and I need to rejuvenate myself. And before he could retire to bed, there was a knock on the door. And often I cry to Allah. I'm a humble, ordinary fallible mortal. And there are many more prominent
scholars and learned people here may Allah preserve each one of them. I see them here And may Allah reward you for sitting in my humble talks, their knowledge is more than me, the experience are more than me.
But you get these calls, concerns queries, and you wish and you cry. And you wonder, I wish I had the strength to respond to every call to give a talk. I wish I could answer every query. I wish I could respond to every question in every WhatsApp and every email. But I just don't have it within me. I don't have the muscle. I don't have the strength. But look at these people. Look at these people. he retires to bed. There's a knock on the door. The butler opens the door. Who's it? It's his son Abdulmalik isn't your dad's instructions is that he's tired and he's exhausted. And he had a long night. Now I need to talk to my dad. Now, but please understand that your dad had a busy night.
He's just retired. Now I need to talk to him. So after much persistence, he informs his father Ahmed Abdullah says it's your son, Abdullah Malik, and is quite adamant that he needs to have a word with you. So he says I show him in his ushered in his brought in is is that you've taken office, you are now liable and you are responsible. All the injustices that were taken place before you now this rests on your shoulder. So he says yes, I know my son. I'm going to address this and we will take care and see how best I just need to sleep the lower. So Abdul Malik tells his father can I whisper something in your ears? And look at this father and son?
Man laka man laka be an Isha ILA
on my Dad, I'm happy if you say you're going to address this certain office and start you know what? resolving all the disparity, discrepancy, discrepancies exploitation, and you're going to address this after his or her day one that you've come into. There's no inaugural bash. There's no big banquet. There's no leverage spread. There is no head of states coming in the Manage taking offers and this is the responsibility. My only question to you is who takes responsibility that you will love the Zohar Salah?
Who takes responsibility my dad the narration goes up for authority No ma'am in baney that statement of this boy jolted his dad gave him a wake up call and I hope my young brother to me and to you and any men that we can also have that wake up call once and for all we draw the line we make a calculated choice. Authority no mean benei ima authority Noma mean benei ima fatigue, insomnia tiredness and sleep left is Island
For good, he then stood up. He embraced his son. It was an emotional embrace. And he said Alhamdulillah he Lavie Raja means will be May your Indonesia Allah Dini, Allah, I'm proud of the legacy you've created from my loin, that if I go off track immediately they apprehend me and put me on line.
Then you see the relation of, of the sun and this father, may Mona Moran says I one day went to Omar Abdulaziz and I seen him sitting and he was writing a letter to who Yakubu Rizal and Isla B. He was reciting Isla Ebony. He was writing a letter to his son Abdullah medic

they see real Corinne that's the name of the Kitab I read the reference of it. Long story short when Satan Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu when he was in his fatal illness, he had called Satan or commander of the aligner. And he said, right, I'm telling you who will succeed me who would take care of who would come into position. So say that was one of the Alon who's writing and Abubakar is dictating what Abu Bakr innum li and said northmen is captured in and record and he was described. And at a critical juncture just when Abu Bakar is about to dictate the name of his successor. Fate has it such that Abubakar passes out and it becomes unconscious.
A niche that the best of us would exploit for personal interests because it's a private closed door meeting.
It was just the two of us,
Abubakar and say the North man by the alarm
and then says now as man continues finishing and completing the form independently, Ababa currently Alanna gains consciousness. He addresses and engages Satan Earth man. So what were you writing? And where did we stop? He said you were dictating the name and then you became unconscious and I took the liberty to complete the name and fill in the dots. And he said and whose name Did you write he said I wrote the obvious or Marina hot tub.
I wrote the obvious one Marina hottub. So Ababa karate, Alana said Alhamdulillah I am so grateful to Allah, that I can leave the Ummah at a stage where there's no rivalry for posts. Such a peaceful time to leave the online leave at this time to know that there's respect and dignity and respect for each other. When opened up the knapsack, kuntala Allah. And if you chose to write your name, trust me, you will no less deserving, you will no less deserving. Today, we don't have that maturity to enter into a meeting and how often I've been called in that the Father has moved on and the brothers can sit down and it's time to wind up in a state and say, listen, okay, this is my share, but I got
a car, you don't have a car, I'm fine with it. You take this car, you take this car, I've got three cars, and that would be my fourth car. And my sibling doesn't have one car. But it's my car. And it's my right and I wanted and surely it's your right. I'm not arguing from a journalistic perspective, from the rules of FIFA. It's absolutely and you know, in order I often mentioned this incident, the other man will enjoy it. And this was the knowledge of seasonality or the long run who a woman once came to say the knowledge but I'm saying the spirit of giving the spirit of giving.
Somebody can toss a Nakamura the Alanna UI in rulership you're not giving me making me in charge. Give me a post that may be in charge give me authority. The world has become so desperate today for fame and recognition.
Look at the look at the social media. It's all about my name. I've traveled to many parts of the world and asked a lot to accept my humble travels. In many parts of the world. People identify a scholar by how many followers he has on social media is like is that is that the grounds is that the credentials is that the yardstick is that the barometer with which we analyze the acceptance of a person.
So you asked Aiden armour,
who was the great curry of this oma? He said you don't give me a post. He said I've shot and you're done. Nice Edina. I'm worried if you take any position, it will taint your piety. It will blemish your character it will compromise your nobility, worship your alot. Stay free from a position and do your things and move on to your things and move on. I was mentioned in the incident of inheritance and I'll come back to Ahmed Abdul Aziz. A woman once came to Satan earlier the Allahu anhu inheritance is a very complex aspect of Islamic jurisprudence. But if you read the life of Satan, Allah you would know the kind of knowledge Allah had blessed him. And this woman came and said
matter of he my brother passed on what taraka said to him, he left behind in his estate 600 Durham's Willem yuksom, Li minha, Illa Durham and I was only
given one didn't come out of the 600 Dharamsala, Hadassah, is this right. To get the knowledge of Satan Ali. He said Lala hotaka omen.
The Allahu taraka Omen was oh jetten we've been Taney what is natural?
If you send your brother left behind 600 drums and he only gave you one, that means your brother is survived by a spouse by a mother by two daughters. 12 brothers and one sister
is here. Right? Right. You right? So well then it's right in one day at home is in order. Mahabharata what was the knowledge? What was the knowledge? Then he said it's simple. The Quran says when he otherwise he licola hidden min Homer's pseudo Swami Metallica in canon Allahu Allah, that the parents will inherit one sixth of the wealth. So from the 600 his mom gets 100 and then the spouse she will get the two daughters will get two thirds to two daughters two or more for incontinent Nisa and focus in attaining Fela one. So no matter if there are two or more daughters, they will get two thirds. So they get two thirds of the 600 that is 400 100 goes to the mother. The
spouse will get one eighth if they are children. Well, Robo me met Dr. ilam Nicola kumala for Incandela Kumar. They don't find a oneness omen for in Canada come Well, I don't know. If you have any children, your spouse will get one eighth one eighth of 675 you left with 25 litho carry mistletoe has
the brothers will get to the sister will get one so from 601 it's in order to tequila sister, that's yours.
I'm saying that just by the desire we cannot sit down respectfully and Thresh out our differences and have the zeal to give one another leave alone you know what to give, overpower. And remember
among ghazali has written that the ego hankers for well, but the ego the ego hungers for position more than wealth.
The ego hankers for wealth, but the ego hankers and yearns and binds for position more, because often position can buy you more than what wealth can buy you. a celebrity status will buy him more than what an affluent man's wealth will buy him his status Who's this position that will buy him more in the world? So the ego wants recognition constantly recognize who I am understand my position. In Islam we are told him because Allah has written something so beautiful He must be there is a type of truth that Allah dislikes. There is a type of truth truth that Allah dislikes What is it? Santa? Maria Allah and FC Santa Maria Allah enough See, when you enumerate your own virtues you
speak about yourself you blow your own trumpet you might be so good we're not refuting but Allah dislikes when you speak about your own good. Yeah, he is a marine said Sir hegner Madonna humble from seen a Santa. Sapna Madonna humble. I stayed with him Affirmative. Now humble for 50 years must ahora Elena bishi in in 50 years, not once I heard the man who was spoke one virtue of himself.
In 50 years, can you imagine this year? Sometime you meet a man in five minutes any Oh, you're slowly brother. I know you're great. Take it easy, man. Take it easy.
You know, often I go and a brother tells me Oh, Chef, I love you, man. When I feel depressed. I listen to your talks. When I see you. I feel nice. I said I wish my wife can say that to me.
She wants to get deeper. I mean, I don't have a problem. Life is good. But what I mean is, the world can salute us the world can salute us. a youngster came. He said my mom, my mother in law, she loves me. She says I'm like a son. My boss says he never seen a better employee. My Navy says I'm the best neighbor is this. My mother's got an issue with me. I said hang on my brother. It's good. You came to all of them. But your agenda is not on your mother in law and be good to your mother in law. Let me clarify my statements. Be good to your neighbor, be good to your employee and employer. But your genetic spending on your man if that's unresolved your issue your gender is on hold.
So he's writing a letter to his son, and he says Omar Abdullah, the son tells his father Listen, dad, you've come into office, many yourself many of yourself right? Today, those that are around us, what kind of input are they giving us? What kind of input are we getting? Let me mention another incident. My time is running out. Omar Abdul Aziz needed to appoint someone as the governor. So he called as the judge of Basra. So he called his governor I didn't

So at evening, Todd said Samantha Tanya ameerul momineen I will oblige I will comply together the two of them he said in a mirror meaning Mr. Ronnie an overly fit Kumar Baba al basrah. I've been given the task that one of us have to take the the rule and the position of becoming the judge of Basra for Mazda uttarayan. I beg for your

So are the evening thoughts Atlanta Raja Minh has an image in his head Tata Sema has an arm Robin, which is gonna buy time like this. You guys got to decide. Someone's got to agree. So here Sydney, Mahalia then takes the lead and he says sell a knee. What will cause him of this amazing salon me Daniel Qasim Sati. Hey Allah. Al Hassan al bursary. One Bahama Davina serien for Houma.
La camisa banana, we can resolve this I'm saying he's more deserving. He's saying I'm more deserving. Today is the other way around. I'm saying I'm more deserving. He's saying he's more deserving. That's the world in which we are. Each man is a jolly Allah azza wa
jal Niala fossa in in the in a name there are certain times where you can praise yourself and embrace the position because you know you are the most deserving person like Satan I use of Allah is surrounded but there's an explanation to it.
So he said let's resolve this year we've got two great legends and great stalwarts and they are you know what Sage of the age and saintly people has an bursary salon Nirvana, Kasim fucky Hey Allah, Mohammed Abdullah Syrian will Hassan al basri Mohammed Ebony, Syrian homogenous Syrian was a great Judas of Islam.
There are so many amazing things about him. He says these are the Allahu taala the abdeen hiren jalila who was driven mental behavior movie and how when Allah intense guiding an individual, Allah activates his spiritual immunity, his immune system when a person eats healthy food and he's on this diet and and you know what?
It's organic and it's not
genetically modified and all that my wife is on its own little clued up.
When they eat all these healthy and the seeds and all this good combination with occasionally they eat unhealthy things, the system reacts to it. The system reacts why because the body is very healthy and very aligned.
When Allah intends good for a person, Allah activates his spiritual immunity. And his spiritual immunity becomes so strong and active and has sass and sensitive that as soon as he entertains the thought of evil or fantasize evil or plans evil, his heart sends in distress signals and his spiritual body becomes uneasy and restless you cannot do this you cannot go you cannot enter this you cannot be friendlier you cannot deal like this year either.
jalila one seven Min calbee Yamaha Yamaha Yamaha it gives him constant messages, sends him signals a plane is in in panic, distress signals to the control room is in a cell sends him distress signals that this is not how you deal. So Mohammed ignacy read and hasn't passed rate.
Go ask them. Now look at the vision of he has been Mahalia, he consciously said that take Kasim Abner obeah and give him the pose. And if you want more clarity speak to these two people. And he consciously highlighted the names of two scholars who Kasim if neurobiol was connected to
today is no no, you speak to me. I speak to my Mufti.
I speak to my scholar. I speak to my cleric. I speak to my fraternity. And there's just division in the unmerge is just bickering in the oma. There is just fatwas shopping in the oma for when you little Edina Jacobo Nikita Baba Ed him. So Maya colonna has Amina
They learn helius through big salmon and kalila highlighting one of the flaws of the scholars of of Bani Israel. Allah said they would write a verdict to suit to impress to appease the person who came to them and it will generate books and virtues and revenue for me my ketubot ad him well when you love him Maxi bone, may Allah guide our scholars, may Allah protect one and all, but honestly, things have been exploited to every level for personal, you know, agendas and personal motives. So he said Don't ask me us passing us has an bursary and Mohamed el erian and has an bursary you know his name was synonymous to piety, just one of these attributes that were well known about him in the
womb in a homegrown serie Rahu kala, and yet he, he was a man between his private his external and internal life, there was absolute harmony. The other day, somebody sent me this beautiful little WhatsApp clip, and in that the person is standing, and he's got a telescope and he's looking looking. And then you know, the the phrase reads, what are you looking for? He said, not too many. If I can just find one person who's external and internal are the same, I'll be happy. If I can just find one person in the distance, I'm scanning the horizons. I'm looking far and wide, I can barely see one human who's outward and inward life who's external and private life, who's public and
private life is the same, and I'm afraid it's just just nowhere to be found. That is why sometimes it's good to maintain a good distance and have respect for a person then come up too close and the stench will kill you. The stench will kill you. So you maintain a reasonable distance and you have a good impression and good luck, maintain that distance and keep that distance. When you look at the lives of Sahaba tell her the Alanna said I seen
that there was a woman in Medina, she was elderly. She was he was frail. She was senile. So I said, Let me try and attend to her word. And I seen that Omar is coming there. Omar is coming in the odd hours. So my suspicion started playing with me and he started giving me negative whispers. I said late hours early morning woman alone Amr What's this all about? What's this all about? It started playing with me. Anyway, one day I went up and knocked on the door the sister called me in. I said sister if you don't mind me asking elderly age mom, elderly lady say that our armor is coming in the odd nights. What is this all about? She said in it he comes and he attends to all my domestic
chores. He cleans my house makes my food attends to everything. And before the flesh of dawn he leaves Satan Ethel ha says tequila
won't be to you. Oh Ha. Are you trying to microscopically probe and look for the flaws of armor will let it be known to you armor sparkles on all levels? The closer you get the more the fragrance there's simply no stench.
The closer you get to Homer, the greater the attraction the more the aroma the more the beauty come up close to his life. You just so impressive if you look at him at a distance, but I'm afraid if you look at me or you look at any other person by and large, then there is disparity, this gross discrepancy. May Allah guide us. So one of the salient qualities of Hassan el Masri in our own serie Rahu Kalani at his private in his external life in harmony, assassin bursary. And us Mohammed Ebony Syrian for whom Allah Tommy's a banana, they are the rightful people to guide. So now he realized this passing with nella br he realized this, that that this is the the plot of Sidney muawiya for
Early Middle Class emo, and yes, and our repo who he says okay, okay, he's making reference to my scholars, and I'm fond of them and they fond of me. So probably they'll give a good reference. So he's getting me into this whole position. He says, Wait, hang on, I'd even thought I have a counter opinion. I imagine if if that was our debates, the he's more deserving. He is more deserving. You take this you lead me back, have you better have you more deserving? Subhan? Allah Subhana Allah, the sign of a believer ease? He will, he will, he will address your wrong to you openly and he will compliment you for your wrong years Apple could compliment you for your good, while the sign of a

Muhammad Yunus serene and Hassan basri la uneven al Qasim a hidden for LA Hilda de la Ilaha in Essen euro who in essence of human need feeding the lower animal bill. I swear by a lot and I take an oath. This man is better, he's more deserving. Our hearts need to be cleaned my brothers. I've been quoting these ortho couplets in many of my talks I'm not going to go to all but I just got one.
Job metal nahi Suk Tata de la mujer gilnean a, or job search Elena Sica. padam padam Pirata
jack Mitchell nahi sakta, Telugu j Guillen, and he dated how ironical is this world when I couldn't walk and I was taking my baby steps that everybody was around me, hold him, protect him, guard him, you must get him that shoe that supports his heel, you mustn't fall. He's a toddler. He's taking his baby steps hold him. And then I evolved and I'm mature, and I took my milestones, and then I could walk and run and lo and behold, everybody wants to drop me. It's a cannon. It's official. It's an evil obnoxious world. Everybody has an agenda dropping floor him exploiting him abusing implicate him. When I couldn't work, the whole world was there to insulate me. And when I could start walking,
now cut him, expose him, we will stop his container will block his deal. We won't let this happen. We'll show who's got the muscle I'll put my way you put your way. We'll see who pulls the strings.
What has happened to the soma, what has happened to the soma, we don't have the ability to pave the way to the prosperity of others. We don't have the muscle to see the prosperity that Allah throws in the lap of others. But that's what Allah gave him be happy with what Allah has decreed and ordained for him. Even that's become too much. So he says, Don't ask anybody I swear by Allah, he's a better person than me. Now, for enquanto quasiment. familia Judah Antolini alpha Baba and after a few kids were in Casa de familia Judah and tabula and unfolded Elon Musk Dude, I took an oath by Allah is better. If I'm speaking a lie in my oath, then how dare you make a liar a judge?
And if I'm speaking the truth, then you have to oblige because he's better. On lavaca we go to extremes. We go to extreme to mobilize people. How many times a year then what is the election? suddenly people have been busloads brought from where and where and what my name my ballot, my my favorite of mine? Do we understand that there is accountability to Allah we have to stand in answer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. For everything in how we conduct ourselves. When Satan our use of the treasures, we are liable for how we manage ourselves in our private capacity. Imagine when we hold public office image and when we hold the funds of public
chef use have been no real akima who last had Let it not be that a man donates to your institution and earns his Paradise by his donation and you earn hell because you abused his donation.
Let it not be that a man donates and earns his paradise and you exploit and abuse his donation and you end up in it's an Amana trust. As I mentioned my opening words taqwa taqwa. That's the only thing that can govern us, that can regulate us that can, can can bring that, you know, discipline into us. So if I'm speaking ally, how dare you make me somebody told him I'm Abu hanifa to take a post. He said by ally, I'm not deserving. He said You're a liar. He said, Well, I don't need any more proof. Why should you make a liar and
a person in position so that he took that in his own favor, to discredit himself to discount himself? Why because there is accountability. We are answerable to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's the thing that needs to kick in us. My my how I manage my my affairs with my spouse with my children was my employee. My Allah is watching that employee is desperate. He won't answer because he's got no recourse. If he opens his mouth, he loses his job, but I have in a love of me. I have an Allah above me. A Boomer wrote better he says I was rebuking, reprimanding admonishing chastising my servant, and I was about to flog him, and I was about to hit him. And then the viola came and he
said La La vaca de la come in Kerala hazzle Hola. Buenas Rue de la has more authority over you than you have over your servant and your slave. I froze. I was embarrassed. I said, only Viola. Can I then just liberate him for the pleasure of Allah, the messenger sallallahu Sallam said you better do so otherwise hell won't leave you alone
Amal Olam cannot.
So then when are the evening our thought heard this? He said, Well, this is what as Abner meraviglia has to say that that he takes an oath that that qassimi of Naira is taking an oath that oh EOS You are a better person. So he didn't say okay, okay. The game is over, give me the post. No, he says in NACA JW by joining the outcast who Allah Shafi. jahannam sonet Jana hoomin Javi amin in Viva La El Paso, pseudo LA. I mean, how will you tube? The truth be told, oh my god, you put the reins of authority on this man. He found himself in a catch 22 you literally put him on the brink of hell. So the only way he could rescue himself is he's taken a false oath. But I have no doubt he will make
Toba from the lie he spoke lavaca he's spoken a lot. He's a pious man. You know you get sometimes some people are liars. But sometimes they speak the truth.
And and and and often we get we get carried away by that one truth. We get a Hadith of the prophets Allah He was in the Hadith in Bukhari. Let me let me just shake with you quickly say that. The Allahu says read our Deen My brother is rich. There's so many models lessons. Examples, it's brimming our Deen is beautiful. We need to be connected to our text attorney art in an intruder intruder. fatale yaku Mina Tommy start stealing from my food. I said hang on is not my food is Zakat money. Don't touch this. Don't touch this. If somebody comes by me and Steve's Allah forbid, I'll see I take from this this the mosquito is not miserly minds. You go from there.
He started stealing. So I said Hey brother, you're an intruder. You snatching I'll report you to the Navy of Allah sallallahu Sallam for Shaka Hodge and Maria and for him to fall late to Sevilla. He gave me a long, sad story. And he said I'm in a crisis. I'm really bad. I'm out. It's dire. It's desperate. So I put it in my body steel and I said okay, go go, go go. He went the next morning and and I just envied the Sahaba for this honor. You have a dream you engage a scholar, you have a dream, you engage a senior and Sahaba would report to the Nabhi of Allah sallallahu wasallam imagine you had a dream in the morning you just come up to the Navy alone to be able to talk to you Whoa,
your brain freezes to begin to imagine the privilege that rested in the laps of Sahaba. Without a password was sitting somebody passed by to barley heart a new line a allottee a latte in grata, Rasul Allah
allow me a moment doesn't want to pass by and I just want to look at those eyes that looked at the Nabhi of Allah daily.
So the ways that vision in our youth, where's that aspiration? Who they idolizing?
whenever you have Allah before I could tell him, he said my father Acero kalbarri happened to the TV viewers last night. I said, Oh, my God, you know it already.

Anil bill, you came to ask the definition of virtue advice, I said spot on. He said LS mo albero mathema andnot la nefs whatman la Hill, while Islam is clear, and explicit on what is virtue and what is vice, but he has an enviable like gives you a measurement from within yourself. Sometimes you need to consult yourself you traveling and there isn't anybody you can consult with. Is this food halaal or not?

people will give you 1000 words. No, it's fine. It's okay. Don't worry, all is okay. But you know within your heart, it's leaving you restless. That's the definition. Obviously when it's clear cut, you don't base it on your heart. But there are certain vague areas where sometimes you need to pronounce an opinion or have a decision made and this is also something that can support you. What is the emotion of your heart provided you are Salima taba as the scholars will tell us that you have a preserved nature a preserved temperament, which is in harmony in sync with the teachings of Quran and Sunnah, that it responds to Quran and Sunnah so be it as it may

Ilana says I intercept him. I apprehend him. What are you
One year. He says no, I'm in a crisis. I'm desperate. I don't have anything please allow me some food for my party team and he convinced me and he took it any when
the second day I narrate that back to the Navy of Allah sallallahu Sallam said abora He will be back again.
And lo and behold, spot on as the Navy of Allah sallallahu wasallam said and absolutely I often say that if a person wants to revert to Islam, amongst the many truth and everything of Islam is true, if you only look at the prophecies of Nabi sallallahu, wasallam that what the nebula had prophesized 14 centuries ago, how it staring us in our eyes, this is a clear proof of the veracity and the truthful nature of Islam. That how the enemy of Allah had spelt it out. He had spelt it out. The narration is in very happy Abdullah Massoud narrates it murfin Yachty Allah nurse is a man a time will come your kuno Allah Quran Allah is oj t he the way he will weather the heat. A man will lose
his Iman and face because of his most near and dear ones. I was in the Caribbean last year, some time for a program in Trinidad more specifically attended a conference I spoke there there was a brother who took a liking to me and then he was spending some time. It's a shift. I need a favor from you. I said I'm available, whatever I can do. Let's see what he said there's a brother that I want you to meet with. I said okay, let's see facilitated and we'll go on. I said what, what's what's so amazing about this brother, he broke down, started crying. I said, Sorry, brother, have I offended you please, my apologies. He said that brother invited me to Islam and his left Islam.
I am Muslim through the grace of Allah and the invite of this brother, and he showed me the light. Tragically, he has abandoned Islam. So it pains me it galls me, it kills me to say the man who brought me in to deal unfortunately time flight commitments and trying to facilitate it just did and but I've continued imploring ally in my humble to ask for his guidance. But that is the volatility of time. That is weird the times. Imagine the man who was instrumental in bringing someone into Dean Allah forbid and protect he has left the fold of Islam.
Recently, there was some of our students that had come from America, which studied and graduated. He said there was a young boy who I knew personally his mother his granny had taken ill and she was critically ill, and she had a lot of, you know, sickness and chronic conditions and she was a very pious, saintly woman. And this woman in her illness came closer and closer to Allah. But this had an adverse effect on the grandson to save my granny so pious, yet in inverted commas coat, she's suffering, why should I become pious?
She, in her illness found her creator and he because of the illness of his granny rebelled against his Allah.
We ask Allah to hold our hearts. We also like to keep us firm. And did anybody ever allow us to make this de yamaka label produce a bit Cubana? Oh the Turner of hearts keep our hearts aligned, keep it focus Sahaba Sedona Viva la Vida you employ Allah repeatedly. We will teach you We won't launch you We won't abandon you. We won't forsake you. We wish you will walk the full road we wish you all the way by Allah Rasul Allah. Allah elmen Shatta Wale MACRA Ll men Shanthi when we pledged allegiance to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When situations are conducive, and when the odds are adverse, also, when the situation is pleasant, and it's against us both. We were digging the
trenches. We were digging the trenches, ice cold read the narrations is coal, and there was intense digging that was taking place for extended period. The Sahaba Nando de la Vina bayamo Hamada Nando la Vina bayamo Hamada. We are the group of those individuals who have pledged our allegiance to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we will not change our mind or backtrack and then a B of Allah while they engage in Allah Houma, la Ayesha Illa I shall have zero suffering and sorrow and Mahavira Oh my Allah is no life but the life of Allah. And really my brother, as a believer, to be honest, the real life is the life of Astra and this ayah in the 12 years, whether in Colonel insert amin,
Rama, and if we have to make men tastes prosperity, whether in the know who
we make men taste prosperity, or we making face adversity, Mufti chef is approximately largely magnifies the word as a foreigner in his Tafseer. And he says this ayah is a proof that there is no pleasure or pain is just the taste of both.
In this world, there's no pleasure, it's the taste of pleasure. Pleasure is enough. There's no real pain. It's the taste of pain, the real pain is after up.
So coming back to the point
the viola said the hearts are in the control of Allah.
Your kalibo hochevar your Sha, Allah can turn the heart of any person at any time at any moment. You've seen a man who was focused, diligent and suddenly just derails. He just loses rhythm. It just loses focus. He just loses grip, and a man who was probably a delinquent, a black sheep. He was an outcast, and he rehabilitates himself and so we can never look with a condescending eye to anybody. We can never ever look with a condescending I remember cazale his words come to my mind. So I just share it with you quickly. And I mentioned those two things and I'll wrap up inshallah, he said, when you look at the young child, then say to yourself, has Abba de la de falla Shaka no euro Mini,
this is a child. Don't ignore him, say to yourself,
have lm Yasser Allah wa say to Felicia Anna Hiram, this is a child. He's pure, he's innocent. He's got no sense we have got so much sense. Definitely this child is better than me. What you love it Kabir and when you see an elderly old age man, you say to yourself, as Ah, ha, Abba de la cobley. This man is fasting before he was born his reading taraweeh before I know myself, so definitely he's better than me. What is all right on him and when you see a scholar, you say has a Halima Mala Mala Mala Mala blue this man is committed to his chest, the whole Quran, I'm grappling with one Jews out there I create a comparison between myself and him. And when you see a sinner you say to yourself,
Hazara Salah, hubby Jacqueline, wanna say to La habituellement Fela Shaka and Ohio Mini. This man has sinned because he doesn't know any better. I have sin.
He has sent out of ignorance, I have sent out of knowledge, for what Jetta La La Akbar. The consequences will be more severe on me on the day of Yama, what is our at curfew and when you see a disbeliever you say Assa de vous la, there is a chance Allah will guide him prior to death. Well, Amanda, you will Daniella and probably Allah can lead me to slip and lose my focus for your kuno who are good than mean Elmo carabin worku and Amina Baba Dean, and he can stand up amongst the close in the near and dear ones to Allah. And I can stand up rejected to a lot. So we can never have a condescending eye on any person, because we don't know what the fate holds the next moment. Anyway,
this person cedra Abu hurayrah intercepts him and says no, Abu hurayrah the Allahu anhu says Now I'm not going to release you because it's the third night in succession. So he says, okay, Abu huraira Let me negotiate with you. Imagine a negotiation with the thief. in the dead of night. You're having a discussion you're discussing.
And what's the negotiation? It says leave me I will teach you some words of Deen. Allah will be pleased with you.
Sahaba was so willing to learn they were ready to learn from all
is our way to enter fellowship when you return it to your bed then read ayatul kursi none will approach you even the devil won't. I said okay, I'll take those words and I'll move on with it. I release him. He conveys this to me. I meet the Navy of Allah and me Sam said what happened last night on a viola was a long story. Now, what happened? He told me that he will convey to me certain words and if I read it through kursi at the time of bed, these are the virtues coming back to the words that I said then a B of Allah said ama in Hoopa sada Kaka wahaca Zoo, ama in Hoopa Sadako Hua Hua Zhu, O Abu hurayrah. He is a perpetual liar. But today he spoke the truth.
He is by nature, he is a perpetual liar. If you do the linguistics of the words, and you dissect it, by nature, he is a perpetual liar. So some people some people speak the nature is to lie. Occasionally they speak the truth. Coming back to that incident that we were talking about. What did he has been more of a toss him and Robbie is an honest man, but today he's spoken a lie. Today he's spoken a lie, and I have no doubt that he will repent from his Toba when he said I am better than him. When Satan or Satan Ahmed was in the throes of death then Abdullayev nobis came to him and said oh Homer everybody at the time of death goes into panic goes into spasm goes into anxiety but you
can relax you know allies happy with you. Have the like non boss came to me said relax. I'm paraphrasing here but the long and short of that that was Omar relax. For you it's Mulla Mulla, Mulla LA, you brought a new definition to justice. You ruled you executed you will know but you abayas when Satan abubaker delegated Satan are Amara the Alanna as the governor like I believe now but I've delayed them as rude or the Alana said it's interfering. Even a casier a fraassen Nancy Salah.
Throughout history, three people stand out in terms of wisdom. There are three wise people. One was the Minister of Egypt when he said to his wife, a creamy Messiah who is a and Santa, when he brought Satan the use of home is to look after this man. This is not an ordinary boy. See him? Well, this is a good boy. And yes, they he was a wise man. He's seen the vision of use of one season I used to have came into power, we talk of people who, who are selfless, you're not selfish, for the entire seven years that they will fare mine in the palace, only one meal was cooked. So that those that were in the palace, and those that were outside, their hunger levels were the same. Honestly, my
brother asked yourself, and I must ask myself, my one holiday and I'm being honest with myself, and it freaks me and it bothers me. My one holiday and my levies spending on my children, and my flying and my accommodation can be the wealth and can be the provision of a family for an entire year. How do I reconcile How do I digest? How do I answer my Creator? When around me so much is happening? I continue to have in my lavish vacations. Knowing Cognizant I quote these words of always currently often and made a lot of fully his grave was nude. He was an amazing person whenever the sun used to set the last piece of bread he had in his possession is to give it in charity. And then he used to
say Allahu Allah, Mamata jhulan Fela to Sivan, Avi, Allah I emphasize with anyone and everyone who is in poverty and penury, but don't hold me liable Allah my last piece of bread was given to you Allah. So I sympathize. But don't take me to task and whatever surplus close the air he would give it in charity. Allahumma. Mamata Orianna Allahumma look in your cupboard let me look in my cupboard. Look at my shoes, look at your shoes. Look at my kids. Look at your kids. Look at recently, just before Ramadan, a brother who's doing some thorough feeding in in one of the informal settlements, he called me and said I'm doing turabian an informal settlement. They don't have the privilege of
scholars visiting them would you oblige? I said, How can I tell you know, my brother? The night preceding read now? How can I tell you know, fate headed that that night in lands there was no lights and that's always happens to us first Ramadan first, you know, Eden lights blackout. Anyway, you go, there are no lights, there are no lights. And then I gave a talk. And it was freezing cold. Well, the windows are open. There's nothing warm about the environment. This is literally just a hop over just a hop over. And then campers were given and we stood outside and with the torch on the phone we given and he's asked me to give it and I'm giving it and then there's a bit of a squabble.
And he's putting in and that one is taken. And I asked the brother, the 20 years you're doing it? How have you managed yourself? How have you persevered? He said, we buy for our kids shoes for 2000 and they still squabble? Are they squabbling over 100 grand voucher allow them that space. And I said brother, Point taken, Point taken Point taken say that our use of when he came with three wise people. One was the minister who said a creamy Messiah look after season our use of he's sitting on his throne. His blood brothers siblings come in the very ones who plotted his assassination and dropped him in the well. Today one brother cannot see the growth of another brother, snap him openly
cannot see the prosperity of another brother, Satan the use of is sitting on the throne his brothers have come in and Allah can reverse the tables my brother, don't be proud. Don't be arrogant. None of us are anchored in the seat of luxury and comfort perpetually. Allah can flip the scenarios at any time. Look at the political landscape of the world and it will speak volumes to you just to expedite for ourselves. Well, homeloan charoen the Quran paints an image is sitting on his throne his brothers walk in he identifies each one. And they don't recognize him because they thought he stepped ahead ended and elevated him on the throne. And Allah puts him in the position of power. And
then they come in it's a long story short, and then he calls his advisors and he calls his employees and he calls his workers he says you see those people that have come in they are my brothers.
You take the money from them in principle, give them the grain give them everything what they want. And then a general Luba, I tell him theory Harley him What did they do with the service opera Malala has written this and it's a topic of its own, that if your son rebels and he revolves, and May Allah protect our youth, it doesn't feature in the vocabulary of a Muslim that I will disown you. I just was and I asked you to make dua. I've been dealing with two very close cases of drug at the moment. I was driving back the other day. And the sister, a cousin of mine called me and she said someone wants to speak to you urgently and I said it's fine. And Mallory Ward, my wife and I make this work
consciously for her because constantly I'm intruded by these goals and I try
And there's a balance I need to strike. And there's a call and somebody who's who's desperately screaming out. And this is the call and she says up, you know, My son has relapsed for the 15th time. And now me and my husband are at the crossroads. He says it's time we call it a day and we let him go. And I feel that you know, what end of the day is my son, it's cold, it's outside. I know, I'm tired. we've exhausted all avenues back and forward, what's the way forward? And I said system. I told you, I will give you two minutes. But talk to me as much as you want to if I can't give you a year or two, I face my luck if I can listen to your pain, if I can listen to your pain and
sympathize with you. So I said, let's let's speak to the boy. But this owning him does not feature in the vocabulary of a Muslim. Mufti showpiece of a spell that out, the brothers of Yusuf had committed five major crimes, they lied to their father, he lost his vision, they made their brother into a slave, they sold him, they dropped him in a well, they fabricated a lie, they stained his garment with false blood, five major sense. And in that he writes, when we say ambia, were tested, we commonly associate the test of a nebby to adversity, physically, Ill monetary challenged, financially challenged restrain, we seldom interpret the challenges of profits as rebellious
children. So profits were tried and challenge. We don't interpret it, they had rebellious children, but Satan or yaku, left the door of communication open. And I speak with a cap of a father of three kids that are teenagers and I asked you to pray for my youth and I pray for your youth. May Allah guide our youth, from their eyes, they love being interviewed and times they live in it, but us phone me every day and I speak to them. And I try to strike the balance. It's not an easy thing in the position in which they find themselves. So say then I use of nose is Cognizant is a way of what his brothers had done to him. Yet he says, This is my blood. It doesn't mean if I'm in power, I'm
going to abuse them, give them their money, how can I exploit and milk my own brothers in their desperation, and then the tail goes on. And this is what I want to mention. Your law puts the thought in my mind that finally at one point, they realize that this is the king and the rest of it. They say in nanorod Camino del Mar seen in a king, you appear to be a very kind man, a very noble man. And yet when Satan or Yusuf was in the jail, the inmates of the jail said to him nap Bay in abita, wheelie in nanorod, kameena masini. Oh, King, please interpret our dream to us. You're a kind man. And the scholars say that is a noble man, that he stood out with nobility when he was an inmate
in a jail. And he still continued the legacy of nobility, when he was elevated to the throne, and he was sitting as the King and the ruler. It's easy to greet when you are an ordinary worker. But how many of us have the courage to greet or talk humbly and simply when Allah has given us muscle and cloud, when Allah has given us well, there's a good brother I know, I visit his office often on his office. He's got notes there. Don't forget, don't forget, one day, my gaze straight, and I started looking at it. And I looked at him and he teared, and we have a personal relation. I imagined him I said, What's this all about? He said, No, I keep this note in front of me on my desk. In 1970. You
never owned a car in 1975. This was your salary. This was the house you love. Remember this and every day I look at this before I start my work, before my employees come into my office, before I issue my decrees before I dispatch my invoice before my containers arrive. I say listen to this and look at this and remember, so who was the wise man? It was the man who recognize the talents of Satan. our use of La Salatu was Salam. The second wise person was the daughter of schreib. Is that Jill, in the hydro minister, tell me you mean in the hydro minister. I mean, that Oh, my father employee Moosa is a man who has two amazing qualities. He's strong and he's trustworthy, and to lead
what they say that I used to say in the Hafiz and Ali, I have knowledge and I have wisdom. And the third person whose fortitude needs to be celebrated was Saison Abubakar when he selected armor as his leader, when he selected armor as his leader, the vision of Abu Bakar so somebody said to Abu Bakar avoca you made Omar in charge what you'll tell Allah, meaning that Omar has so much muscle and clout and power when you are when when you are in charge when Omar will have three lanes What will he do and say that Abu Bakr said I've been lucky to have any ability to hold the phone any Are you trying to scam me about Allah as if I don't feel my align? I don't know Omar by ally will say to
Allah I have made the most deserving person in charge for in Adela fatale cavani fee. If he lives up to my dream then those are my hopes and my extended my expectations were in but then a fellow higher urato and if it distorts any changes, then Allah knows my intentions will noble there will no trace of nepotism in it to wrap up on that.
Note coming back to that incident. What did it evening or thought say to er Sydney? mahavidya in Germany Yes Hello Miss la Tamika has a Lucha de Roon bill Cava Hurry up, you could see into that men statement and understand it and you could spell it out. So to use a man to take the office and I make you in charge, and then Sapa muawiya was given that position of power and authority and he ruled and he brought a different definition.
