This was Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa early he was having a manic
In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. I take this opportunity to once again welcome all the brothers and sisters that have registered to attend this workshop where we will endeavor to discuss selected discourses of the grain giant legend, luminary and scholar of Islam from the sixth century Azadi Rahim Allah.
The time is very short and the aim is never to complete the book and that would never be done. The messenger sallallahu Sallam has mentioned in integration menjaga whole mode, what we're yet to do with the E v in Islam being overweight and NaVi natalja tonawanda that he who dies while occupied in the acquisition of the knowledge of Islam. So the messengers, Allah ism did not mention he who dies after completing a course. After having the necessary degrees he was engaged. He was in the process. He was learning and teaching Joe Olmo. He was acquiring the knowledge of Dane, but the aim has been correctly up the hill it is law that I need to implement the religion in my life. I need to exhibit
it, I need to display it. And I need to convey the message to others because the messenger sallallahu wasallam had forewarned us and cautioned us men fallible human who journey with the Lord Emma, Are you married?
Are you sorry for me he would do unnecesary Hola Hola. Now that those who will acquire the knowledge of Deen to challenge to debate to combat to prove others ignorant to prove themselves intellectual, then despite spending hours and hours in the acquisition of the knowledge of Deen they have defeated the motive for which one's supposed to acquire the knowledge of Deen. And despite having that in their bosoms, Allah would you know, direct them to hell by Allah protect one at all. So Eman Rosati, Rahim Allah been a scholar of the sixth century. And just some thought provoking advice regarding Allah Sania Rahim Allah, and pretty much found in all the Center for solidity in all our pious
predecessors, when we look at their contribution to Islam, and we look at their works, and the subsequent acceptance that Allah gave them, scholars tell us, they would do things that unite them all.
So you would be amazed to know, this very book of L vasarely.
I fly often, and I know that I'm promoting an airline here, but I fly Emirates. And in the business class, on the in flight entertainment, they have an Arabic audio section, in that they have the Koran, they have some to ask, and believe it or not, they have the book of Imam ghazali thank you and women in an audio for
the first time when I realized this as I was browsing through and I was listening to Quran and listening to glass and then as a un with it. And now it's in audio form. And I thought to myself, a man of the sixth century, writing a letter to his disciple, who after spending years in his company, he asks the Imam, I need some tips and advices. And I need you to summarize my years of studies into practical bite sizes that I can implement it and walk with the door. And Suhana law simple, basic, private, discreet, but what was the sincerity of the amount that a lot took his message not across the globe, but above the clouds.
a lot to keys message not across the globe, but above the clouds. If somebody had to Joe and I lifted my shutter and then looked outside, and I looked on my screen, and I've heard it few times while flying just selected at the altitude of 40,000 feet flying there. If somebody told me that, you know you're writing this letter, just write it properly, because yeah, above the clouds sometime later, in centuries to come, people will be listening to you. So Pamela, this is his last, this is sincerity, then you do something exclusively for the pleasure of Allah. And this is where Allah takes your work, because the aim and the motive is to please Allah. So when we look at the lives of
our by his predecessors, we would find two things. There was a class and there was
and unfortunately, both these elements today by and large, I'm a food they haven't found. If last sincerity, I'm doing it only for the pleasure of Allah. I'm not sitting here to say I have attended the course. I have an additional
feather in my cap, I have another testimony to my accolades. I have another diblock No, no, I'm coming here to find my Creator to understand, you know, my faith better my religion better and connect with my Creator. That is his last. And the second is when we look at the lives of these pioneers, predecessors, they were sued and what was the word that they will not attach to the things of this world. And somebody described Szilard very beautifully, because often it could be misconstrued. Zone doesn't mean that you don't possess the world. But Zubat rather means that the world doesn't possess you.
So there's a big difference between the two. When we say Zoho, we're not saying
you cannot possess the world, because we need to possess we need to possess. One scholar gave a beautiful explanation. He said, the biggest proof that we have to earn in this world is that Allah exhorts us to spend. So if there isn't an earning process in place, how do we spend? So we have to engage in the world and we have to earn for the 5 million Mongolian liners that Lisa Thiago and levena through Khun Antonia live well in living area through Kunal Alinea. Well, I can millenia Yokozuna, minahan he was he, they don't form the best amongst you who forsake the after a totally to secure this world. nor are they the best amongst you who forsake this world in its entirety to
secure the after all, but then the best amongst you are those who can strike the fine balance laser. And that's the beauty of the laser. And larina yet Dragoon adonia in Africa
and Indonesia, when
he was happy him
just one point on his last because I touched on it and, and, in fact, when we look at some of the writings of the pious predecessors by kusuda Shashi is a book that is taught in many seminaries and institutions across the globe. And it's a great word. But amazingly, the author authored the book. But there is difference of opinion who the author is because he didn't leave any trace of his name.
So there's speculation it could be him It could be him probably this probably that. But he authored the work, the work got accepted. It's part of curriculum, students, study it, memorize it, appreciate it, to go into understanding the sciences of the Quran. But the individual author's sincerity was so remarkable that he felt it not necessary to put his name on the book.
You know, these these were people that taught him today, it's difficult for us to digest the reality leave them and leave alone implementing it. So when a person has CLT, in what he does,
allama should be referred to as money Rahim Allah has written somewhere in the footnotes of the federal money, and I read this myself, he said, If you say the correct statement, with the correct intention in the correct manner, they need to be sure to have an effect on the individuals you're speaking to. But if it doesn't have any effect, either, you're lacking the correct tone. In English, they say that
10% of our conflicts are due to difference of opinion. And 90% is due to the wrong body language.
10% of our conflict is we definitely want an opinion. But 90% is your body language, his anger, his rage, his attitude. So just on the point of class, so allow me to mention in the third juice, it's an amazing idea like every other
day, a two minute really
in our lives, effect garone just look at this. So Allah, Allah explains the consequences, the repercussion, the catastrophic result of the absence of sincerity because the messenger sallallahu Sallam said,
Have sincerity in your actions and little will suffice. Have sincerity in your actions and little will suffice. And probably in today's world, you know, it's all about how much I encourage establish fame recognition for myself. In fact, those who tread the path of spiritual reformation, they tell you one of the last melodies to die from the heart of a Sonic is the crave of fame and recognition. One of the last things that will die you could kill many other evils. But probably the last thing is the grave of fame, I remember suddenly has written elsewhere that the ego craves and henges in yearns for fame more than wealth, because often fame can buy you more than welcome by you. And today
we see the world many places. It's not the money you have, but it's who you are, is the celebrity status that you
Enjoy. So the ego is ever yearning and pining and Hank Green and aspiring to be famous because the mileage and the recognition and the fame that I get through that is phenomenal. And this Dean is all about, you know what, annihilating yourself and and proving yourself to be feeble and allowed to be the absolute and and all brand new to Allah. So Allah asked the question, would anyone of you like Yeah, what do Would you like to come any one of you and the goon Allah whoo Jana domina see that he has date bombs, Janina to mean nothing enough and he has been years dreaming tactical and are beneath which rivers flow? Yeah, what do I do come into Gunilla, who gentlemen have been taken him
into hell and have the houfy ham including some odd and he enjoys you know, plenty abundance of fruit.
The houfy humming police Tamara wasabia, who Kibera when we are gone.
And then he is gripped by old age wasaga who will keep his gripped by old age he becomes friendly become senile, he becomes weak when
he has children that are dependent on him for our Saba Hassan and then this this world, we are this tornado or this gusty winds that come and destroy his orchard and destroy his crops. So what is the example given here, Allah says those who give charity are do good, but they do it for to impress people to secure name fame, they example is they are doing a virtuous action. But look at the consequences that on the day of the AMA, when they would need the reward of the virtues the most, it would be destroyed. And how is the example given is that a person has this garden, and he's watering, it is nourishing it is investing in it. And he's reaching that age of retirement, that
when once I retire, I can sit back I can eat from the fruits and the dividends and the returns of these orchards and these date farms and vineyards. And I can have my life settle and enjoy it. But lo and behold Winnie leeches the life and the age of retiring, that just about when it's time to retire and take his retirement package, you comes into NATO, you come to the world with you come some gusty wind comes and destroys his crops completely. And he has absolutely nothing left. But now to compound the crisis and to aggravate the situation. It's just not him that he has to look after he has his little kids and dependence. So it makes it worse. What is you lose what you have, but
it's just yourself. And you said, Well, that's it now just spend the rest of my life in whatever little I have. Or you lose, but you can rely on your assets. I have a son. So you know, I burned my fingers. I invested but it backfired. But my son called me or my daughter called me or my grandchild called me. So I'm hopping around in spending the rest of my life. The Quran says no, no, this scenario of this man is very different. He was about to retire and he lost his absolute and exclusive and only investment. And instead of having assets yet liabilities, you have people to take care of. So now his pain is much more. Allah says that he's the example of a man who invested in
suppose that good, but tainted and diluted that good because he had evil intentions, he didn't have the motive of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when he will come to Allah, hoping that this investment will rescue him only to learn that he did it for other motives. And it's not going to help him in any way. So we need to, you know, check our intention constantly, constantly. And this is something we need to do soul searching about. We're going to have to stop and move otherwise, you know what, we could be speaking on a class and so forth, and the day will pass and we wouldn't even say hello to this book. But but but food for thought, food for thought the man of the sixth century,
writing a letter like it's written in the foreword, and I'm going to go into that because we're not going to get anything we want the Baraka of the text of the Imam himself. So he had when he writes a letter to his disciple, and in the foreword is mentioned, it's very deceptive that you think in Okay, oh, son, so properly, you would think it's a young child, it's a lead, but no, no, it was an adult, it was a grown up. But obviously the Imam was addressing this disciple of he is in a very compassionate context, and in a very warm manner, and he was using a loving embrace. And that was the teaching of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So addressing him as Oh, my son, and you had word.
And the essence of this letter is that the particular student who spent all the years in the service of the amount acquired in theory you would know even bizarrely is one of those few people who went into philosophy and came out clean. There are very few people that can go into philosophy and come up with
unclean untainted. Anyone Rosario Rahim Allah was amongst those who studied philosophy understood philosophy and then challenge the philosophies with, with with with his Deen because generally people go there they start questioning the very essence of their faith, the question the existence of Allah subhanho wa Taala and many other things come up and I personally have interacted with individuals like this. So May Allah preserve and protect our faith and safeguard us against entertaining any questions or negativity regarding Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah.
Allah will jameelah so we will be commencing on page five, just for the benefit of the brothers and sisters if we could open that because the foreword prior to that is quite detailed. And there's quite a bit to be said about it and obviously it's time consuming. So anyway, the amount commences Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, Allah, Mohammed Al Aziz,
no beloved and precious disciple. Now I just have a fleshie. Again, this is again the teachings of the messenger sallallahu wasallam, when he wrote a letter to the Roman Emperor, so the Sahaba said to him that these people love these titles and honor that you respect them. So he wrote a law away in a room that is in Buhari to the senior personality to the man in power to the honorable, venerable Roman Emperor. So the messenger sallallahu wasallam, afforded him that title and gave him that recognition. A lot of women row prophets, Allah ism, these people love that when you address them, then you address them with the necessary titles. So the message is a lot isn't afforded that
they said they like a stamp. And that's when on his blessing the ring, the stamp was engraved Muhammad Rasulullah. And that was the official stamp that the messenger sallallahu wasallam would then stamp on his letters. And these are chapter two, just the lattice of the messenger sallallahu wasallam, to the different rulers, kings and monarchs. So again, we learn the tone with which we address LLM au Halliwell and William ocean policies. Again, we appreciate the warmness the love the embrace in it, our beloved and precious disciple.
Kirby Parente, he was select a bigger Sabina after he
may Allah prolong your life in obedience to Him and traveling you on the path of those he loves. So this is what we would refer to in Arabic as Joomla monitor whether he ensures that this is a word of honor, and a compliment and in an application in favor of the disciple and then he goes on and I'm unsure unless he has a double marginal result in Ghana but Bella Baka Minh manasi Hadn't you had unluckiness he has he was were me of Luca Falco, Lee muda, Hassan stuffy, heavy histamine and mouthfeel. So have a lot. He says to him.
That advice should be coated from the goal of mind of the messenger sallallahu sallam, if you have received advice from him, what need Do you have of mine advice and if you have not received from him then tell me what have you achieved in the years gone by the real place to acquire advice from is the teachings of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam because Allah has blessed him with Jomo Kenyatta comprehensive speech, Allah has blessed him with the goodness of Tunisia and after Yaga Sophia Angie to come beside Indonesia walk around, after I have come to you with the goodness of this world and after 45 million man will be a lot more humble said that there was no good that was to unfold till
the Yama but that the messenger sallallahu Sallam had encouraged and exhorted us and there was no evil but that he had caution and warned us happy the home and hospital when they see a woman nesea who rose from amongst my companions who preserve it, they preserve it, and those who unfortunately have forgotten it, they have forgotten it. So he commences these first advice to his beloved disciple by say you mean Jamila dimana Sahaba Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who motto
is Allah, Allah to Allah Allah, Allah Allah. Allah. Allah Yani whenever in the habit, satin minimum re re makueni Paulo Manila rabada Lucha de Roon Fulani Omen, Joseph urbani, whatever
we need for literature has enough for
our disciple. Included in what Allah messenger sallallahu wasallam advised his community
in his statement amongst the many ideas of the messenger sallallahu Sallam an indication of the withdrawal of the Almighty the exalted from the worshiper here although Allah to Allah Allah, Allah Allah hottie ish Dillard ob mala Jani. What is this? An indication of the withdrawal of the Almighty the exalted from the worship of ease
Servant occupying himself with that which does not concern him
so if you want to know a lot he's pleased with you like Muhammad Ali Syrian said he's
in heaven when Allah intense good for a person how does Allah display that good to that individual? Jana Navarre Ivan min Can we hear more Oh, Allah activates his spirituality and his spirituality become so active, so sensitive that as soon as this person entertains of plans or fantasizes around immediately he is so sends him distress signals
that Listen, listen, this is not something you shouldn't be perusing this year. This is forbidden, you shouldn't be going on the site here You shouldn't be chatting, you shouldn't be talking, you should have known this is wrong. Instantly his inner self is solely so active, that in sends him these messages that you need to stay clean of this year. That's a sign that ally has intended good and a person's soul is now active. It's vigilant, its focus, it's, it's fulfilling its duty, and the sign that Allah is withdrawing his happiness from an individual, Allah to Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.
Allahu Bhima Jani, you would find that he could sit for hours on end, and spend days on end in things in which there's no good materially or spiritually speaking. I mean, how often today, we find ourselves engaged in frivolous actions in vain actions, we could be perusing, we could be chatting, we could be browsing, we could be viewing we could be commenting. And our use cannabis literally hours. It's it's, it's a theme of time, the technology of it just captures your time. And at the end of this, you ask yourself, what did you achieve? That there was a youngster who was quite depressed? So I asked him what happened? He said, my side lost. So I said, Wait, let me give you a good way
that your side always wins. lecture, please tell me. I said support the winning side.
Support the side that wins. And then your side one, he says no, it doesn't work like that. I said, so those that you support today, pay your royalty. Today, you pay them
by buying the tickets attending going view and you pay them so so why, why the best? And why the diligence, why such effort? Why such investment in something that What's the good Sahaba will gathered around an individual and the message is a lot is and walked in it and higher to Sahaba and get double the value. And the messages are awesome. So what's all this fuss about? And people have converged? And he said, Oh, this man is profound is he learned any learning? So the message is a lot is himself and what's all his knowledge all about? He said out loud Naseby and service. Oh, he knows the genealogy of the ancestry of the Arabs, and he knows the tribes and the breakdown. So amongst
the heavens, you have buckling, you have fatigue, you have Kabira, you have Chevron, you have these different types of branches and groups that he breaks down into, so he knows them all. So the message is a lot in some sense. In fact,
this is not it is not going to take you far and ignorance is not going to set you back really,
if you know it. So what if you don't know? What's the harm, and that still had some connotation. So hours and hours go people travel and they do so much they do so much. You know, I was in UK and we're taking a train early morning from London to to Manchester just for three, four weeks ago. And you go inside with a match. And the train early morning on a Sunday morning is full of phenomena like Sunday morning.
Relax, spend sleep, spend time, and it's love. You know what? I had a problem because the night before was in London, Sunday was important. And we had to take a tube and a train and then I fly out that evening. So it happened to be that day and it coincides as the strain is just brimming and overflowing and it happens to be a match. And yet people are out in the numbers early morning in the support in the loyalty. So Allah to Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Ruby, mana Jani, and this, this is probably you know, there is that long duration, where if you narrow down, the amount of Buddhahood was set, and it's very detailed and if I have to narrow down 600,000 to 6006 1000 to six
hudy rather than six one would be this Hadith of the messenger sallallahu Sallam mean Hosni Islamism in Turku, mala Jani, that part of the beauty of a person's faith is that he stays clean of that which does not involve him when I dug for my laser like me, and don't pry or probe into things that don't concern you in the summer. Well, Bizarro world for the cooloola Concannon who Masuda remember your gaze, remember your urine Remember, you're thinking of
You will be questioned to Allah you will be questioned about it in the court of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he says,
if an hour of a man's life slips by, in anything other than that for which he was created in the way of worship, then it is proper that his affliction be protracted, Lucha de
la he has Serato that means, if you lost one hour of your time, then you are entitled to cry to lament and to sob over the pain This is something that warrants your tears. You need to cry about it because you really don't have to muster all the great giant intellectual giant what he said, Man Adam to Allah say, Allah Yeoman tallahatchie shampoo, horrible three shampoo, na casa jelly, whatever music fee Amelie. He says nothing constitutes a greater regret in my life than seeing the sunrise and the sunset, cognizant that I've lost another day, my life is shorter, but my virtue hasn't increased.
That for me is now the alarm bells are ringing today. I mean, I'm in red. I'm in arrears. I'm in failure. I mean, I often say that the lender Mr. Road cries, if a day goes and his virtue doesn't increase.
I was his one word a day doesn't bind without our vice increasing.
You know, even if it just balances out my good didn't get more My bad, we were just like stagnating. Probably we can say we breaking even. Right? Not that that's the ideal situation. But this scenario is very different. A day doesn't go by and my, my evil, it gets deeper, and I become more, you know, intense in my role. And in terms of my virtue, I stagnate or I retrogress I slip deeper. So he goes on to say that if you've lost an hour in your life, then
really speaking my brother that warns that you cry, and you lament and you regret. And I often go this English, you know, saying, where we say we need to do change. And that's why we've come here, right? We've come here to effect change in our life, this moment, that the devil has no problem with our good intentions, as long as it's for tomorrow.
As long as your intention is to change tomorrow, in the future, later, the devil is happy you came to bath to buy it, you attended a program, you met friends, you socialize and you went, but the day you say you change it now. Now the devil is released in flatulence excuse the phrase. Now the devil is in panic mode. Now the devil is in panic mode, when you say, I am changing at this moment, between the regrets of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow lies the opportunity of today. And I'm going to do it now. You handle me in a manual stage even in da
da da to Lima,
Waterloo and Allah
O you who believe respond to the call of Allah and His Messenger in which allow us give you life in this world and life in Africa, you matter your ego, a lot of give you life, whatever. And remember, and Allah jacobina, evaluate that execute your intention now because very often Allah creates a blockage between you and the execution of your intention, either by illness or by death, or by snatching the ability to do good. All this has been mentioned under the commentary of this iron nine jewels in pseudocode. And so when you have the intention, you never know when you're going to have that same motive or that same drive in years to come. Or you might not have the muscle in the cloud,
and the strength and the ability to execute it. So the good intention, we need to do it right now. And then he goes on to say, woman, Joe was a part of me while I'm young,
while I'm young,
even now that a person who passes 40, without his virtue overpowered in his face, and the scholars indicate that obviously this disciple was below the age of 40. That is why he gave him this advice, because if they passed the age of 40, then it would be in vain to say this to him because he was not yet at the age of 40. But once you reach the threshold of 40,
and you're good, and your virtue does not surpass your evil, then he should such an individual should prepare himself for hellfire. And this advice contains enough for people of knowledge. In other words, this one advice is deep. It's profound. It's adequate, to stimulate you towards action and to get you doing things.
So, I am not a miracle as a co op mentor as a woman as a command economy in a ministry that on the day of Allah will say
Did I not give you adequate life in which you could have recognized me if you wanted to recognize me. And when a person puts his mind to something in this very tight life of ours, people can jump and people and what they say in English, a determination can easily become obsession. Determination can easily become obsession, people get obsessed with their particular passions, and they do it and they do it diligently religiously. And they obsessed by it and they do it and they create the time and whatever needs to happen they do it. So it's just a matter of focusing and realigning and reprioritizing and then the right things would happen. You have a nasty letter well, mosquito boo

A particular biological funny a typical Chava to manufacture Isla de
Vito filet o disciple advises easy what is difficult is accepting it.
You know, brother says, dropping my gaze when I am tempted to see the opposite gender is very easy. But then to contain the anxiety after dropping my gaze that's difficult. So how was the exam or the questions were easy to adjust the answers that were difficult.
I was the exam or the questions were fine. Just like a breeze was a walk in the bath. Okay, so what was the issue? Or the answers were really challenging to give advice? Or who can give it it's no, it's no. You know what? pride no greatness that he gave the advice it's to deliver, it's to achieve and that that villager, that villager, who accepted the truth and reverted to Islam, he said number 10 Lenny Allah has an appeal to media and
training in the
shall reign in locker Oh,
no, no who young fella Yamato.
That's so profound. He said the thing that inspired me to Islam is that this prophet, whatever he advises, is the first to practice it, and whenever he prohibits, is the first to abstain from it. And the third thing I notice about him is often glory and victory falls in his lap, but there's no trace of pride or arrogance in his in his life. I'm convinced he's the man. But did he say three things about the man? Habib salatu salam
ala Hannah Nabeel me and Nicola
So wherever you learn to my brother, whatever you learned your sister, as much as you need to communicate this, put it on social media, reach out to your friends, put it on your WhatsApp, Whatsapp groups, that's awesome. That's brilliant, that's metal, you know, rewarding. It's brilliant. But we don't stop there. I need to translate that into action. I need to do it, I need to deliver it. That would be the biggest testimony of what I learned.
And that's exactly what he said. So he says advice is easy, what is difficult, he's accepted it for it is put into place to those who pursue vain pleasures. Those who pursue the main pleasures of this world, when you're going to give them that advice. It's going to be very difficult. It's going to be, you know, a bitter pill to swallow. It's going to go against the ego. It's going to go against the grain of person's desires and inclinations, because he doesn't like them. And the ego just wants to sit and enjoy and indulge and, and just be in recreation.
Since forbidden things are dear to the hearts for fatty Jenna to Bill makari dinarobin Shahada, the messenger sallallahu wasallam said for the gender to Bill Macario for the Nairobi Shahada, that paradise paradise has been surrounded with things that your ego dislikes will fit in no rubbish Shahada and Hellfire has been surrounded with all things that your ego yours and binds for. So do the wrong and that's that's the recipe for hellfire. And there and the formula for paradise. Safa matamanoa be the one who fears the interview with his Lord, when he didn't have any lava and restrains his ego. You know, in English, somebody said very beautiful, he said the word ego, just
delete the E and you'll go
ego, just delete the E, that ego and I need an app. This is where all becomes sensitive and contentious. And there's a squabble in this altercation and there's a feud, and it's ugly, and it's printed, drop the E, and we all will go, we all will go disrupt the E and then we'll move on. But the ego This is where we hold back.
This is particularly so for whoever is the student of conventional knowledge, who is occupied with gratifying his ego and with World worldly exploits, for he supposes that his knowledge alone will be his salvation, and that is deliverance and the deliverance in it as well.
And that he can do without good deeds. This is the conviction of the philosophers, the theory, the doctrine, the claim, the assumption, that shear theory would be adequate. If I commit words to memory and like somebody has written very beautifully, that he was student excels in school, we need to ask ourselves, what's the yardstick of measuring excellence? If somebody excelled in school, and he took a degree, then all we say is he committed to memory, the text that was taught to him to understand if he's an A student, we have to analyze the text, we have to find out what he's committed to memory. For now. All we're saying is, whatever was important, this seven agent, he
imbibed it, he memorized it, he understood it. But we haven't microscopically critically analyzed the material. The material could be something that's making him an atheist and an agnostic. And he now knows the doctrines and the theories and the arguments and the counter arguments. Do we still say he's an A student, we need to re evaluate the yardstick the benchmark with which we analyze exigency, versus, versus otherwise, because for now, all we say is he committed to memory because the very material is subject to interrogation. So there are many who believe that shear theory is adequate for salvation, and that's the argument of philosophers and never those have been Glory be
to God the Almighty this conceded fool, as he says, yeah.
He makes mention of it that this person,
Guru anahita, hustler Lima,
Ronnie aka, this conceited fool does not know that when he acquires knowledge, if he does not act on the strength of it, the evidence against him will become decisive. As the messenger sallallahu Sallam said, the man was severely punished on the Day of Resurrection is a scholar, whom, whom God did not benefit him by his own knowledge. Right? So that is really, really scary. It makes your hair stand on end, that that how are you going to answer to Allah subhanho wa Taala regarding the knowledge that you carry, and the responsibility that you have, and because Allah has made mention of this, elsewhere in VEDA till he died, when he speaks about the need, that you should never
consider yourself superior, you know, he writes somewhere else, and I found this to be so profound. He said, I'll happy God.
The reality of being is that you must perform good, but stop admiring your good. And the reality is not to stop performing the good.
So you perform the good without admiring your good. And like acumen Omar Rahim Allah has mentioned and as is one of the most profound statements of these I've ever heard. He said, in a nutshell, what is Islam? Islam is to constantly strive to attain piety, without claiming to be bias,
to constantly strive to better yourself without blaming it. So I don't say I am good, but I have to constantly try of doing it that that that is the nutshell of it. Solomon was already mentioned elsewhere in his writings, where he says, you know, just to corroborate and to substantiate the same argument by his own writings elsewhere. And here, he says, that when you look at a junior, you should say to yourself, however, let me
that this is a lad, he is a minor, he is insane, and I have sinned, so surely he's closer to the almighty than I am. And then when you see a person older than you, then you say to yourself, how the Abba de la probably for the second nobuhiro Mini this man is older than me so he's worshipped Allah years before me. How can I even imagine to be better and superior to him? what he did and when you see a fool or you find an ignorant person, you say, ha ha ha Salah Happy journey, for you to be really mean philosophy.
When you see a ignorant person you say he has done wrong because he doesn't know better. I have done the wrong despite having the knowledge. So the testimony and the evidence
A lot will be greater against me than him. And when you see a learned person you say Halima madam RLM Baba, Baba Pablo forgive Guna mistletoe. This man carries in his bosom the knowledge of Deen and the sciences of Deen and I don't even know a fraction of what he has. So how can I compare myself to him? Well, you know, the government and when you see a disbeliever you say Asa de la copula a mood, probably a lot would guide him prior to his death and then he would be rescued and he would become close to Allah
Azza you villainy allow for a con una vida, como para de una hora de de novo carabin. So that tomorrow he could stand up as a close person to the Almighty. And I could stand up rejected and deprived of EMR. So in other words, at no point is the room of scope for you to perceive yourself to be superior to others. And that is the essence of sarouk and that is what we hope to aspire from. And I mentioned this Yakima oma has also said this year and this weekend with the Masai Mara mala used to say that post my demise, if people would read my writings with the aim of changing their lives, Allah will give them the same effect that Allah gave to those who attended my discourses,
those who came and set in my gatherings and heard my direct speech, those who will read my writings post my demise, a lot of give them the same effect. So if this could be sad regarding a sage of the age, a saint of the times, why would we not imagined the same, if not more from the beloved teachings and the idea of having sort of love on a level, that we are not those fortunate individuals to have seen and witness the blessing arrow of the messenger sallallahu wasallam, nor could we see him but his blessing ahaadeeth are with us. And if we diligently applied ourselves doing a law will give us that same reward. In fact, there are many innovations that suggest prior to
the AMA the messenger sallallahu Sallam said that those who would hold on my teachings love him and Durham seen they wouldn't get the disease in a Buddha when they will get the reward of 50 people Sahaba said Francine Amina Amina, whom Yasuda Allah 50 of us or 50 of that time, the prophet SAW Some said no prior to the Yama those who practice on deed that will get the reward of 50 from among zoo.
It's a separate thing, that because we did not see the messenger sallallahu wasallam. We can never come close to any Sahabi when when
Imam Shafi really macholos us who is greater in merit and virtue, Ahmed Abdul Aziz Amara, we are only allowed Marengo, and we know what I'm willing to have done Aziz he was the second aroma. He loves the period and revive the period of the qualifier regime, and saith the Lord who was a great noble Companion of the messenger sallallahu sallam, Allahu metody Mahalia when he Allah guide Mojave and guide people at the hands of Mahalia and so, mahalo was asked between Omar Abdullah Aziz and Muhammad Ali Alonso, who would rank more superior and even Shafi Mohammed Rahim Allah says that the life of Muhammad Abdul Aziz cannot be equivalent to the dust in the nostrils of the horse on winter,
will say that Mojave or the Atlanta road. What did he say? The dust in the nostrils the dust in the nostrils of the horse, and we'd say now Mojave or the Alon road once the messenger sallallahu wasallam was mounted on his conveyance, and he's his conveyance past urien so Abdullah bin obey bin Samuel and this narration is in the 26 Joe's inshallah lane in two different origins mentioned that. So the convenience of the messages a lot is in pasturing. It was an animal it was a convenience it passed unit. So they'll have been obey when salute, tried to give off a gesture of dislike, and to show dislike to the messenger sallallahu sallam, and he said, This man and his animal and his
convenience has caused us pain and discomfort and uneasiness. And so hon Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah said abodo Srimati rasulillah God Hamid misclick the bone Oshima Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at every family miski Abdullah bin obey, who was the need of the Manasa Dean Abdullah bin raha responded and retorted and told him you know, what, the you read of the conveyance of the messenger sallallahu wasallam is more fragrant than your mask
the urien of the messenger sallallahu wasallam conveyance is more fragrant than your mask. So be it as it may. We are saying yeah, that shear theory is inadequate shear theory is inadequate and the consequences will be catastrophic. In Arabic They say
Alamosa to lemon law tree when masiva to Lima yet three album, the one who doesn't know that itself is is is a liability and it's a problem. But if you know the responsibility is more daunting, more challenging and more colossal because now you were the cap of knowledge and responsibility in it.
It is reported that genital Baghdadi may Allah be pleased with him work was seen in a dream after he had passed away and was asked, What is the news that will cause him which was his pet name and kunia. He says those expressions were wide off the mark. And those councils came to nothing. Nothing was of benefit to me except some small prayer, which will refer to a diminutive form. This is the Roca makhana I made in the middle of night. In other words, I authored many books, and I conducted many discourses, and Allah didn't accept it. I was just reading the other day in Ruffin. mahana allama, unusable daddy rights under this ayah in the 19 Jews in Surah. Two novels were the
application of cinema and a salatu salam, that after obeying a lot of CS academic, it's philosophical, but I'll try and simplify it and when I read it, I was like, wow, this is just so amazing. So satana Suleiman and Islam invokes a lot. What does he say? labios Irani and Khurana hermetic and let me underline underlayer might not give me the ability to do good, what an animator saw, they had to do righteous deeds, but he does not stop at the performance of righteous deeds done, although I like give me the ability to perform righteous deeds. And then I asked you Theravada is in the meaning of COBOL accepted or like accepted. So from this, he writes that the duty of the
believer does not cease at the performance of a virtue, but his duty continued continuous beyond that, after the performance of a virtue, he has to now repeatedly submit a request of acceptance.
So after you've done it, now, it's your duty you've observed you're fasting Ramadan, you're not done and dusted. Now it's like a like accepted, like, accepted, accepted. And then he writes a lot more open about that in Romanian the desire that there is no logical, compelling argument no from the text of Shinya to suggest that there is anything that is binding, that if something is done correctly, it has to be accepted this, there is no proof to corroborate this year. And I give you a simple analogy, I furnish a form to apply for a visa, online or hardcopy as the requirements are, and I submitted, I cannot have the guarantee of the approval of my request, purely because I have
furnished the documents diligently. It sits at the discretion and the prerogative of the ambassador view in my application, if the required black ink uploaded in black ink, for the size of this size, I've done that X amount of money deposit into the bank, but there's no argument to suggest that if you've done it properly, it has to be accepted, neither through logic, nor through the rule of Syria. And it was such a beautiful writer. And he writes it under this idea that this is exactly what the Quran says, turbo turbo, oh my lord, you accept it. So this is what you need, but that he was seen in a dream and a vision. And he was asked that how did you feel before the Almighty. And he
said, The truth is that nothing was accepted, nothing was accepted. Often a person is traveling, and he might be concerned that you can in certain food or certain items, or certain herbs or fruits that might be questionable, you know, as you come in through customs, that it might not be allowed me products, wherever it is jerky, biltong, etc. And you're coming through, and it might be questionable to bring that and it sort of happens that the immigration officer or the customs officer is fine with that. And he finds something else which you were not concerned about to be something of disturbance. So you thought this would bother you only to know that that wasn't
serious, but yet you had something else in your possession that was questionable. And suddenly now the focus is on something else. So really, I don't know how things would unfold and unveiling the court of law. But it comes back to the same point and that is the need to bring action in your life. And you have weathered the law to come in and remove Lisa willamina.
Whether you can analyze
Zhu Li very international to see if in India.
happen for him Allah Allah He says he won't come on no.
Man in our
that fall in love with daddy give a Barbie. He gives a simple analogy. He says oh disciple we need a destitute of good deeds, not devoid of the wrath of spiritual status, for you can be sure that mere knowledge will not help you.
It is as though a man in a desert had 10 Indian swords and other weapons besides the men being brave and a warrior and a huge terrifying lion attractive. What is your opinion? Oh my disciple will the weapons repel this danger of this individual without him being used without him taking up those arms. In other words, the analogy is as follows. You are armed you know right to to
To the to completely with all weapons and munitions, and somebody attacks you. And you say that no, no, I have adequate ammunition. I have adequate arms, but you don't use it. You don't resist, you're not resilient. You don't challenge your opponent and you just sit back. And you rely on the fact that I have adequate arms. That's a fool a man with half a brain won't even have a difference of opinion on that. Well, that's precisely the case. That's precisely the case. That if you have the theory with you, but you don't practice on the theory, you don't, you don't deliver on the theory, you don't live up to the theory, and you rely. And in fact, I'm reminded of one of the statements of
one of my scholars May Allah preserve him.
He's too often say that there's a sizable number of the Muslim Ummah, that remains in the delusion
that they would fortify themselves against the fitna and the evil of the devil, the Antichrist, the one eyed purely through the information of his appearance. So they haven't strengthened their Eman. They haven't done any good. All they are relying on is Oh, we will see him he would be walking like this, he would be dressed like this. These will be supernatural characteristics. And we will just take a look at him and say back off and complain and say we live in a fool's paradise. How many times did the messengers alarm not warn us of the temptation of interests of usually, of gambling of all other temptations which are before us and we are cognizant of the warnings yet we go ahead on to
the wrong, we know it we read the Hadees now we go out in temptation just wipes out everything just deletes everything from our mind. And for a moment we then you know what, we want to re address it and we want to have a different interpretation and a justification. We have all the adequate information, but it's not adequate to resist that simply because we have not implemented it. So that's that's foolish to think which is going to support the john and Okay, there's a like really keep away from this this guy, really this guy's bad. This guy's bad. And we following the trend, we embrace his music we love in all the wrong in the sending device and the transgression. So he says
you are sitting in a deserted place and a beast, a predator makes an advancement towards you. If you don't take up your arms and you don't resist, and you don't have the necessary clout and muscle, then, you know, just having all that ammunition is not going to do anything. And I'm reminded of a verse in the 13, Jews and sort of a rod where like gives the symbology of those who worship other dynasties and isms besides Allah. And Allah says, What levina Yamuna mean dooney la is a boon and ambition in Illa capacity cafe he in Alma, Leah Nova why Mama Bee burn is a woman
the signature of those who supplicate others besides Allah is like a person who comes to a well write code like boss it spread cafe his pumps even more to the water. So this person comes to water and he does this year has like water, water and I'm thirsty please.
Please, please have some mercy on me I'm thirsty. For my will be by lately by by addressing the water and calling out to the water probably will aggravate you just because you know what your vocal cords are active. So you're going to increase and aggravate but in terms of soothing your thirst. It's it's far from reality. Allah says that's the example of calling out to anyone else calling out to anyone else besides a love and often today I've been hearing where people go through a bit of depression and then they decide to question a lot of forsaken law a lot and ask the question yeah, the ruderman Babu Aqaba ministry the big one a big salary sheet that you call out to me and
momentarily I did not answer your prayer as you desire because of my wisdom. So you know resorting to other isms Are you suggesting that they are going to do for you that which Allah didn't do
yet thorough enough? In other words, your harm is more guaranteed there when you go elsewhere then your benefit the Big Buddha was a big seller he even indeed is that a guardian and a master for hackathon. Roger don't meet

in love is Yamaha again. He gives the same thing just to give it in a nutshell. If a person memorize 1000 routings, and he committed 1000 books to memory you need to know my brother, that qarun whose name is synonymous to evil, but do a little bit background on our own core rune is the cousin of Musa and his salah and he's a half
corals who had memorized the Torah, when, at the time when the memorization of the Scripture was very much the salient feature of the prophets and there was selected individuals from the oma unlike today energy roofie sudo Rahim where the entire oma people at the tender age of four and five have memorized the Quran and we've seen it. But in the previous time this was not the case. This was not the case where the memorizing of the Scripture was so accessible to all
qarun according to the narration of Jolene can upload nurse EBIT da da da da da musawah Harun he was the most learned on the Torah.
After the two prophets of the bunnies that are a that is Musa and Harun he was the direct cousin Agusan Imam in a la jolla solid with the sleep sharing that brother about the family die having memorized the Torah. But in Genesis he got the better of him and what was jealousy? He approached Musa and our own instinct but like, You are my cousin and I'm your cousin, you know that a lot. And I know we did. Why are you a prophet and I'm not a prophet.
Allah RLM hydrea January sala de
La da da da da, da da da da says I know who to bless and endow with Prophet would allow me a demon Yeshua and Allah selects with his mercy whomsoever He wishes. What a bouquet of lucuma your Shatta Wale, your Lord hand picks and selections, whatever he wishes, Mark,
never had a choice in the matter. They never had a choice in the matter for them to argue otherwise.
But he couldn't handle this he couldn't deal with this year. So he has the knowledge he has the power. And do you know my brother many of us don't know this year. That why we believe and we understand and we have no doubt that from the divine scriptures, the Quran is the first book, The next book in marriage is the Torah and then the gene and then visible.
So after the Quran in terms of marriage in significance, the second book that comes in terms of greatness is the Torah and why because ally has accordingly graded in and then comes the Injeel and then comes visible. So the Quran, the Torah has been lavishly praised in the Quran, and there are many terms and references that Allah is used for the Torah in the Quran similar to that of the Quran. In other words, as Allah has described the Quran in certain words, Elias use similar words for the Torah, one of
musawah for God, one of
musawah for record, shop Aurora McConnell and even Xena fee Hill Hotel in Nancy verbena demeanor. nobuta. Well for God, hour refers to the Quran is for con Allah refers to the Torah as forgone workarea and a brightness a illumination was the current a reflection will put debris in for those who fear Allah. When Dana Moosa Nikita membaca Dima
pasar Irani in the 20th Jews in the 20 Jews Allah makes mentioned in Surah Lucas's that the book of cedra Musa was pasa it was an eye opener for people.
And then what happens? Where does his jealousy take him to? One day when say the Messiah is given a public address, he prepares a particular woman and he gives an X amount of money. And he says to understand when Moosa makes his public address, then I need you to challenge him in the public audience and say, Moses, just take a backseat when Moses settled out, man, you know, you've done you've been immoral and unjust and you've you've done evil with me.
So he provokes this woman pays an amount Sandra who stands up and the integrity of industry is essential. the integrity of innovation is essential when Sandra Yousuf was in the jail, and then he was been released. He said, I'm just not going to come out. I need the cloud to be cleared from my name. I need the question mark hanging on my Dalai Lama and Neela
Allah Allah God gave me name I want the truth must come out. They said all those women are gonna say no, all those women who accused me and implicated me where they said, okay, we admit that we are wrong in your interest. And he said, Well, exactly. As a prophet, I need to stand up with a chastity and morality. And in fact, the scholars of the Sierra have written and I just have a thought so I'm just going to share with you quickly, that when the minister's wife seduced useable Islam and she tried to get this bribe and she tried to be immoral with him. And obviously he ran for safety. And as he ran the door off the door open up, and when they got to the dog, the pet is just dead. The
minister was they were saying
what alpha and they find
the woman's husband, let them bomb at the door.
And from this world, the mega city tell us also that a lot reference the minister, as senior leader. So from this, we also deduce that a woman in reference to her husband should use a respectable term, she should call her husband with something of honor, why the man would refer to his wife with love and affection. So we don't use you know, there are condescending, derogatory, inflammatory, unpleasant, you know, that compromises the honor of a person. So we showed respect and love between the spouses, and those are good words. So anyway, as we go, and as they got to the door, and she realized that she was caught and the husband was there. So immediately she went to the defense and
she said, Marja woman, Allah Lika Sue. Oh, my husband, what do you feel? What's the consequences of a man who intends evil with your wife, Ella Euston? I think he needs to be taken into custody, he needs to be imprisoned,
or inflict the difficult punishment on him and move us in right? That at this juncture, given the nobility of a prophet, it was highly possible, that he would have been silent, and he would have not blown the whistle on the infidelity of this woman and the disloyalty of this woman. But no soon as she attacked his honor, being a prophet, it became necessary for him to clean his he's in the allegation against him because he represents the goal of Allah is the ambassador of Allah. So if she left it, it was highly possible say that I use would have said nothing. And nature would have taken its course and divine intervention would have exposed that and exonerated him, but due to the fact
that she implied him and implicated him. Now it became necessary for me to say
that Jeannie and nuptse, she's the one that initiated me. So in his honor, and a believer has to live with respect and honor. And remember my sister is the narration of the golani and the messenger sallallahu Sallam said, God, full of sanity. Yeah, the more I'm Allah, me at the Senate in that if you accuse a chaste woman, and you say she's a model, she's unchaste, she has loose morals and values, and she's a pure chaste woman, you have destroyed the worship of 100 years.
That is our sacred wisdom brand refers to Valentina hormonal Botswana. Moxon, literally derived from the word Heston and Heston literally means a for a woman who has 45 to herself, who's insulated herself, who has safeguarded and protected herself. So say that I use Osama bin exit from the jail. I want clarity on the matter why, so that people must stand up and say you could have an accusation and an allegation of immorality to your name, and you can still come into power. Who cares? It doesn't make a difference. You could be you know what anyone in society and you still come and take the power and take the seat and take the office that they can a random Annie.
The minister needs to know I didn't stab him in his back and I didn't betray him what
he gave me and the plot of Evil will never prosper. So Saison musala salatu salam stands up and this woman challenges him now this is the integrity of a Navy. So it almost appoints to her and he says, Fear Allah and speak the truth. And she says apologies almost Moses, I retrieved my words. I retract my words. And it says what made you say this? It is qarun that made me he instigated me. And what did I say? Who was a cousin of Moses and a cousin of heroin and a half is of the towbar and having all this and this is way, shear theory, shear theory. This is what happened.
My luck Allah protect May Allah protect we live in in scary times we live in in scary times. We've heard personally of people, you know what? memorizing, observe the Quran memorizing the text of the Hadith. And tragically they have fallen prey to certain deviant sex and deviant ideas. And they have been vulnerable to other thoughts and theories and philosophies and they have started questioning their faith May Allah protect one and all.
And then what happened? Say now Musa said oh my lord, this is what our own does to me. And Allah said, The Lord is the land is at your at your disposal or Moosa? And he said, Oh, life is at my disposal that led sort of him and the Quran says focus of NaVi will be the hill of America and Allah boom in FY 18, Susana momento de la Mancha, minimoon, das Leary, and then he continues to sink in the earth and he continues and continues unabated unending. So are we stopping for a break?
So anyway, the point here he gives again another analogy is that if a person has jaundice, he uses the analogy of jaundice, right? And then
you it's jaundice is a condition of the liver.
This yellowness that sets into the liver and then obviously you're going to go on to a diet, and this medication that needs to be taken, if you don't take the necessary medication, it's not going to help you, you're going to have the knowledge but you got to apply it. I've had eautiful analogy from one scholar, may Allah reward him handsomely assets of Anna legislation to this analogy. And this is so profound. And this is why we need to sit with the scholars, we need to sit with them as often as possible, I promise you, software is integral for the preservation of our archive. We need software, if we don't have Saba what the body is. And I heard this from one of my teachers, he said
an amazing thing. He said, the Sahaba
were the students of the messenger sallallahu sallam.
They were the disciples of the messenger sallallahu sallam, and they were the companions. But he st chose to refer to them as companions from the word sorbet. And not till me from the word students.
So they don't go down as the students, although they are completely up. But when you look at the student of Mohammed says, that's an occasional reference. But in principle, the companion, the Sahabi, from the words slightly biased, humble, soft, about companionship, and we need companionship, we need to sit with the scholars to learn from them. Once we have this notion of independence,
then that's the recipe for disaster.
That's the recipe for disaster. There is a beautiful incident, I've gotten off. And I'm not going to go into details very intricate. But just a quick one here. Let me first mention the thought that I had, which I heard from one great scholar, he seen a petrol tanker, gas tanker come into a gas station, right? It's carrying gallons of gas on its back.
But till he doesn't put gas in its system, it can move.
So it's going from garage to garage, to deliver gas to the gas pumps, to the difference between stations, so much on its back, but nothing in its system, he doesn't make it move. So for all he doesn't need, man, he's got enough on his back, man, the whole time the whole truck is filled with gas, you don't need to you you don't need to full gas. No, I have to go live and you give it to everyone else. Well, that's separate, that's not within me, that's above me, that's on top me in my system. So you can have all this information that doesn't make you spiritually independent, because you need to be born in your own dosage within your own system. And I need to be doing it to myself,
and you need to be doing it to yourself, then. And then only do we get the necessary supplement like that. And I found this analogy to be so profound. So long story short, in Abu hanifa goes to visit a student that we use a lot. And we used to was one of the distinguished students of Abu hanifa Rahim Allah and he had taken very ill. And then he came there and he visited him. And he was quite sad and distraught to see that his student was quite terminally ill. And he said, in asaba, nurse obika, the young
woman Kathy, in a suburban nurse or Baker named America on caffeine, he was out and unconscious. And he just made this remark. And that's such a rich tribute from the email. He said, If Abu Yusuf, the student of mines, goes there with him goes a chunk of knowledge which I doubt anybody else will able to replace, if he goes and we lose him in this illness of ease, and with him goes a chunk of knowledge. So that's a very rich tribute from his own teacher. What a testimony from his own teacher.
And that is what really matters. Often we get deceived, and conceited, by you know what, small people's acknowledgment that we feel so great about ourselves. It doesn't make all the difference
in a 10th commandment into my team in Napa Sinfonia Shahada to levy Annie Camilo. So anyway, when the abuse of real you know, gain consciousness and he got up, he was told that amongst the people who came to visit you was your own teacher, Abu hanifa cannibal law he visited you. And these were the rituals he said about you. He said that you you know what you're a man of great knowledge and alphabet, if you happen to die in this illness, then he would really regret sorting your demise because with you a chunk of knowledge will go without anybody else would possess.
So he interpreted this statement and this utterance of the Imam as license of independence.
So I said no, okay, this is this is fine. I mean, if he says this, then that means he's he's issued me that I can now move on myself. I'm fine. I'm good to go. So after that NFC he imagined he saw instead of attending the gathering of Abu hanifa, he started his own gathering. What cassara and Lulu Medici, Avi hanifa, and he stopped attending
Honey was gathered in LA. And he said that I can do my own my own has given me the garden Mr. Malik. He says my upstate upstate had to say the least. And
I didn't issue my first verdict until 50 of my senior said that I have the the jurisprudence and the necessary knowledge to issue a fatwa. Mr. Malik Rahim, Allah said ma upstaging had Tasha Denise Allah soon after Sati scholar said that nomadic is that is the famous statement was la youth de Omani cornfield Medina, Allah you start nobody would issue a fatwa, as long as Mr. Malik is in Medina, because that was his acceptance, and that is the knowledge ally given him. So remember, hanifa got to know about this year that, you know what he his students started his own gathering. He said, Okay, okay. Okay, no problem. Is it Do me a favor, just go to him and ask him one ruling. So
he was known as we use.
His name was yaku. So he said, Go to me dollar person, just ask him one ruling. Just ask him a maltipoo Furion dasara enough Assad insolvent Li sudo. I'm not gonna go into the ruling square interlinkage and everything. But the point that I need to convey through it, hopefully I will communicate that message. Just go to him and ask him, what's the rule and if a person takes a piece of cloth to a bleacher to tell him that bleach this color just died is for me, and I'll pay you a deal. And they agreed on the service and they agree on the amount. And then the rock was told the owner of the cloth cloth goes back to him after a period of time and tells the bleacher that they
can I have my garment and my cloth, please. And here's the deal. And the bleacher denies the sale or the transaction and he says there's nothing in place. I don't know what you're talking about. You gave me nothing. I agreed about nothing. Is it? Listen, I gave you a please Can I have my cloth in yours? No, I don't know what you're talking about. Anyway, he moves on afterwards, and he comes back. And then he engages the person again. And finally reluctantly, he gives the piece of cloth and it's bleached. Ask him like this, in a scenario like this, with a breach initially denies and subsequently agrees is the bleacher and title for the money entitled to take the money for the
services rendered or not. From a juristic perspective. This is simple. In case you think this is attic. This is easiest to doesn't like, we go to this when you're studying like much more intensive, this casual, casual when it gets much more intricate, and you go through all the different rulings and implications and you understand the beauty of our Deen if a man said it like this, or even said the D like this, and the wording would differ like this.
It's so amazing. It's so amazing. I was reading in a push ad. And I read this and I said Suhana like this is knowledge my brother and
knowledge is an ocean with no shores. So alhama crochet and nessa booderee he writes them that what is the wisdom that Allah has said that after you divorce your wife three times, Allah forbid that you cannot reconcile with her until she doesn't get married to somebody's house and that religion is consumated. And if that is dissolved, she goes to the pedia and then only becomes permissible for first as well. For him palapa la luna boom embargo has died and he has our genitalia, for example,
Jonah and a man
in one Dyneema Hodo De La
these people's knowledge, why has a lot of time people question but why? Why is it so challenging that after three balance, it's cumbersome, the woman has to move on into another marriage, blah, blah, blah. He writes
the reason for this, the way I understand it, he writes with me Who am I have absolutely nothing in Surah Baqarah under this is where Allah speaks about the law. The wisdom behind this amongst other wisdoms is that naturally, a man by his love, and his passion and his protection, and his Laila his sense of honor over his wife, he wouldn't want his wife to end up with another man. That's how each man has been created. You protect them you possessive, that's my spouse, that's my partner. That's that's my that's part of me. How dare you stretch your eyes? What are you doing? Keep yourself back off. You know that that's a sense that Allah has created every man will unless Allah forbid we
destroy that sense. And that is what the headings refers to as cackled, and they use language that they use. And if you if you look at the the breakdown of the word cackle from the English language, that this actually refers to a verb
in which this practice is found. And that's why in English, they use the word capital to translate the word they use. Who is the youth and lady? Yoku, a person who doesn't mind that his wife is with strange man. He's like, comfortable. That's life. That's the norm, what you're getting all excited about. It's cool. It's relaxed. It's nothing serious. That's life. So such a person is the youth where he's, he's he's lost his railroad, he's lost his sense of honor.
So had a lot what was the thing?
which had you
know, prior to
even push it to sokola? Good cause to put you on the spot to see who's listening name.
So what does he say? He says that when you give up to your wife,
now, you don't want to imagine this. So as an obstacle, nn hurdle and an impediment and a blockage and a petition to prevent you from losing your wife into the hands of the other. Allah said, if you're going to give three blocks, then I'm going to let that happen which you dread. So don't ever give three thoughts.
Don't ever give three drops, there's no need for this, because then that will occur which you dread which you despise. So this was not to complicate matters, but more to make you restrain yourself, because then the consequences will be irreversible, irreversible.
But lo and behold, we are negligent, we are careless, we just pronounce it we don't realize it. We don't appreciate it. We don't understand the gravity. And then we sing in the song painful song, but why would how but what? But this is the reason. So it's there to protect you and protect my sister and her honor. Why would you pronounce this year, then that which you dread? So it's there, that measure is put in place to safeguard you. And when I read this, I said supanova look at the beauty of our Dean, the dean is complete, it's just that we don't know it.
I often share this analogy of
he has been more aware of who was great why he was attending a non Muslim institution. And some non Muslims took him to task and said, I find one thing in your religion very strange. And that is that alcohol is forbidden. Yet when we dissect and we break down the ingredients of alcohol, then Muslims are fine with the individual elder ingredients, but they have an issue with the end product. So what is fine crepes is fine. Sugar is fine. But when you put it through the process, then Muslims say no, it's forbidden. It doesn't make sense to me.
Before I give you the answer, many of us might be thinking yeah make sense? You
never thought yourself leaving on that product but you got me thinking also it doesn't really know Yeah, it's actually not it's a merited argument. It's a merit to the argument. You know what? It kind of goes wait man, because this is like strange. That you know what is fine. Grapes are fine. Sugar is fine. Well, maybe from a medical diabetic perspective, there are other issues with it. And you know, you know, being getting eaten into not the
fake one and eat origin and then the rest of it. But yes, from a religious perspective. Subhana Allah these were people who understood the deen and they love the deen and that's what Islam causes. We'll have a severely ill Allah, Allah. Allah, say I invite to deem not by blindness, not by indoctrination, but by sound reason and wisdom by deep introspection and application application of my mind. I love my deed, I understand my faith and passionate about my religion. I know what I say I believe in what I say. I'm convinced on what I say.
It's just just not, you know, word of mouth theory. No.
So it has been low effort to come from Lima in further up to Accra yujiro. If I take some water and sprinkle it on you, it's gonna hurt you know, I don't I just get wet. The offer to cut from me been further up to attorney general, if I take some sand some straw, and I earned it towards you some grass. Get a little dusty. That's about it. Okay.
Now how to get from the mouth. If I take that same water and that same sand and that same grass, and I put it through a baking process and I make it into a solid break.
And then I hold the brick towards you. Would it hurt you? Surely it would hurt me probably it could even damage me injure me, cost me an organ in a lump. Or that's exactly what what alcohol is. It goes through a process until it ferments until it matures until it becomes an intoxicant and it becomes forbidden. He said souhan alone he heard this he says you have resolved all my doubts. And you've introduced me to the beauty of Islam by this explanation of yours
So really there is the answer. I don't have it. And I don't know what the answer is that the answer is they're coming back to that incident of abuse of Rahim Allah. He said, Go and ask him about this one piece of cloth and one theorem and the preacher refuses and subsequent, if he says that the bleacher is entitled to remuneration for the services rendered, then just tell him you made a mistake on your, on your ruling. And then if it retracts, and he says, No, no, no, no, no, no, actually is not entitled telling you still made a mistake.
These are people they discipline their students, and they taught them the right way. And really my brother, you need to connect yourself to someone and there are so many scholars and automa, to whom you can connect any of them Shafi said that if you don't connect yourself at the feet of pious scholars, and you don't learn from them, then you will have to contend with the brutal consequences of ignorance for the rest of your life. You rather go and contend with bitterness in being molded in be molded, and you learn the right things.
And you learn the correct values and in that you are disciplined. Otherwise your decisions will be flawed with ignorance simply because you will you will you will never educated and you will never cheated by anyone. So this person goes he says over use of just a quick rule in place. So brother took a piece of cloth, he went to a bleach he said can you do this year and they agreed that one day would be paid and it was done. And subsequently he went to the man the man said, No, we have no agreement in place. I don't know what you're talking about. I never took a piece of cloth I never agreed, says listen, brother you Oh, no, no, I don't know what you're talking about. Okay. And then
after a few days, he goes back he says, Listen, please, brother, can you can you can you be serious and give me? He says, Yeah, I use your piece of cloth. I'm just wondering in a scenario like this here, would the bleacher be entitled for payment? Yeah, you will be entitled
with respect to seniority, I think you've earned in the ruling.
Okay, okay. Sorry, sorry, sorry, my apologies. My apologies. Actually, he will not be entitled. I'm sorry. But I think you still
as soon as this person engaged him on both fronts, he realized that this was a hint from his teacher.
He realize immediately This is coming from my teacher. And they were humble. They were humble. You know, in English, they say
that anger gets us into problems. But pride keeps us in those problems.
Anger gets us into problem you know, it was just I lost my balance momentarily I in a fit of rage correct. But now just apologize and he'd humbled by and fix the problem now is you know what? We don't do that we don't apologize. You know my surname we come from a different clan and a different tribe and a different brand we we don't we don't apologize Solomon that's like we don't my dignity that's only stripping me of my manhood.
It's just not in me to do that. So what they say that angle lenses into problems, but pride keeps us there. But these people were humble.
So he stands up and he comes to a honey vida honey versus a beaker Illa masala Toluca saw
I guess you grappling with the bleach story, right? So he says now, Mama Nana, who yesterday and
Gala. Nuff said. First the mom reproaches him. And that's how discipline takes place. The one who thinks he's learned it all and knows it all. He must first learn to cry. He must first learn to cry.
People often ask me in your years of learning and teaching what you learned. And I said I only learned this much that now I know properly. That I don't know.
What lie is the truth. One lie. This is not I'm not here to score points wasn't to score points. The truth is that the more you learn, what do I know? What do I know? I know nothing. He who knows not And knows not he knows not he's a fool abstained from him?
He who knows not And knows not he knows not he's a fool. In other words, he's ignorant about his ignorance.
Yes, doesn't even need to have known folia bacala NFC, then our hanifa gives him the whole ruling. But anybody uses an amazing analogy. He says you know, what's your issue over who uses does the public the public and to Haslem does have to have stream. You want to become a reason before becoming a grape.
Now the it goes through a process and it's dried up and then it goes through this and it ends up as a grain as a reason. It starts off as a grave. You're not even a grave and you want to you know, in English, they talk of precocious puberty. In medical terminology. They talk of precocious puberty, where you want to mature before your time, like anger, your time will come you will get your
And you'll be there when it needs to be there. So you haven't yet gone through the process and you want to reach the end result. So again, what's the message that we got to be learning all the time? So just to do one more thing and then we will have a break,
which Amata alpha kita when the coup de coeur
la salle de la Mancha, knio, Tunica, OBE phenomenon Salida Jessa jaaxy boon in a Latina homina homina salida de

rasa. So these are different verses of the Quran from different chapters of the Quran, where basically he supports and collaborates and substantiates the argument that shear theory is inadequate and insufficient to secure and fortify yourself against the torment of Allah. So just give a loose translation of these ayah. I mean, it is written there in detail, but just to go through it briefly. What are
we at the Senate in and if you study for a century, which Amata Alfa Kitab in, and you could author 1000 books, let the coup started.
In level, amen, you would not be ready to receive the mercy of Allah until and unless you don't translate theory into action. Until and unless you don't translate theory into action. I mean, there's incidence if not carried, as mentioned, if a person came to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And he said, Oh, Allah advise me the messenger sallallahu wasallam said, semirara melamid scholars are watching clay vo O Muhammad, Mr. Yahoo. Whoever does an atom of good, he will see the benefit of that. And we haven't done an iota of evil, he will have to contend with the consequences of the evil. And it's like you're cleaning
your cleaning or profitability. Okay, that's enough. That's enough. I got enough money. This is enough to stimulate me to virtue and protect me from evil. It's enough. I've got enough I've taken in those days. I mean, the Sahaba used to come and say Oh, so anyway, Oh, geez. I'm not gonna advise you please make it short. I mean, face value that so abrupt face value, apparently that looks so crude and brutal and harsh, and apparently uncultured, like you dictate in the conditions of the advice. But the motive was so beautiful, noble and wholesome. Please make it simple, so I can implement it immediately.
And for us, his lecture hall when you talk when the night is young, just go on and I can just enjoy this wonderful job. It's brilliant. Oh, I just love it. I love it. I love it speaking you'll love it. Listen, neither of us are practicing anything.
It's just, it's just great. And it's just going on and on. You know. So we would, it's just coming in and out. It's nothing. There was an elderly man once I attended a program and this whole people have this some wisdom with them. And he says, once my dad called me and he says, You let my advice I'm like, Yeah, he says in in one year out of the 100 I said kind of is in any way. That's also the time will come you don't enter the first nevermind exit seconds
and your way up. It doesn't enter leave alone exit if it gets in and then it comes out you can still say I forgot it. You never knew how can you say you forgot it. So anyway, he proves here that you know what action action is the thing or at least a little concerning illamasqua and men will get nothing but that for which he toys sorry, Yes, he does. He works men will get nothing.
Man does not receive other than that which he strives and then another verse from an kanaya julita of being a failure, mela melons sonica whether you Shrek be remembered and to be here, I just have a flesh on this iron. While I'm mentioning Dr. Abdullah Napa. So they allowed us to say that this ayah in the living room is a solid he had taken his own genetic
lucilla till the end of it. Those are the concluding verses of sulekha that if any person has difficulty in awakening, and by extension for john, and he really is passionate to awaken himself and be particular of his prayer. Then in addition to the other measures that he puts in place from an alarm clock or whatever else he has, he should resign this verse. And trust me, I have witnessed the Baraka of this ayah and how amazing it is you lead this ayah with conviction and allow will open your eyes at that time doesn't happen to me once or twice or a dozen, two dozen. I have lost count of how many times provided you sincere you take the other measures in place and you read this ayah
Allah will open your eyes for you to awaken. So the context of the higher in discussion here is for mankind IRA Judah Arabi. He was optimistic to meet his Lord.
What's the way forward friendly aka mellow melon saw the half friendly aka melon melon salejaw he was performed righteous deeds
just be maka Cebu it is compensation for what they did and right another amazing thing right which is going to end here in
Albuquerque doesn't do this and that's what I'm telling you this is the beauty of the Quran when some reading doesn't Allah whoa look at this now you know you can read that same idea and you just keep on drawing from the beauty. So under this is when a bill has an active Allah Masha
Allah says Mangia Abril hacer la in
under this is written, Allah did not say the one who performs a virtue will get 10 rewards. Allah said the one who produces a virtue.
That means the author writes, you have to come with your virtue to Allah on the day of the AMA, then you will get your reward for not performing it only year. You got to make sure you protect it, you harness it, you preserve it, you kept it and you bring it. You bring it with you and GM.
Somebody asked you Do you know what a you coming down? Please get me this. Then you Oh, I bought it for you then oh, I left it at home. Does it help? It doesn't help. A man says you know what I'm earning so much. The wife says, Oh, no, Chef, don't ask him how much he owns, how much does he bring home? How much does he bring home, don't give us your salary like that. Then you have your pension deductions, then you have your debts that you've incurred, then you have your personal hobbies, then you have all when he comes home, he's coming home with less than half the check. Allah said I don't want to know how much you perform in this world. I want to know how much you bring into me.
My job will have Santa Monica Bella Bella, how much are you bringing to me? Because you could be performing a virtue and it could be diluted it could be destroyed. It could be 1000 things that come and eat and consume and destroy and compromise the effect of that verge of how much are you bringing to online when I read this, it just gave me a shiver in my bag that we claim how much we earn. But we don't realize how much we protect and how much we will appear before Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah to accept whatever we've had in this session, and whatever it is to continue beyond the break. May Allah give us the connection to the sciences of the May Allah grant Asante and his lightsaber
handsome reward for conveying to us this Deen in its pristine form. May Allah make us amongst those who embrace emulate and practice are suddenly loving Oh, Solomon and Amina Muhammad. Allah he was having huge money
Bismillah Ar Rahman Al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallam I
mean to be you know Mohammed he was early he was happy he managed to Derby Haji he walked into this unity era yo Mateen are back. So hope everybody is fresh and rejuvenated. We continue we will reflect in on the aspect where Imam Hassan Rahim Allah was emphasizing the need of action. And we went briefly through some verses of the Quran and we referenced the Tafseer double barrel MFI pertaining to the verse manager of Bill Hashanah fella washroom and thirdly hub, where he highlights the focus on job. He highlights the focus on Java the need to produce the action.
Okay, there we go. So he highlights the need to focus on on producing the action in other words, to protect it to preserve it, and to appear with it before Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we go to the verse from uncanny or do the copy for the Amen, amen. And Sony has what are usually very bad at your beat. And then the verse
comes compensation reward for what they did in this world. And yet another verse in the levina army lasagna had so basically the trend the year that he's been impressed is that Allah mentions our army to constantly in the block, those who perform righteous deeds and follow up the claim and the proclamation of faith, by the performance of righteous deeds, can in some general feel those for them will be the guardians of those Newsela as hospitality palatina Fie heart they will dwell there in eternity.
They will not desire to leave or seek change and that's the beauty of gender
that in this world, regardless of the embellishments and the
conference in the ease of a place at some point monotony sets in that is that is intrinsic to this world. So you go for a beautiful exotic location wonderful, great food, but then it's like it's time now you need to do some work, you're tired. You're tired of having a break. you tired of having a brain that is it's irrefutable, it's undeniable you actually get tired of a holiday. In other words, the body just wants to change your diet. So the Quran says the agenda is such that the beauty will continue increasing, it will just not cease.
They will not desire to seek change. And then 400 from embody him colorful Alvaro salata would devour shahadi, for so for your own Alinea, that after speaking about the galaxy of the prophets in this verse in the 16, Jews in Surah, Maryam, Allah said their descendants then replace them, who neglected prayer and followed passions, that those who came after the pious and this is if you look at the Arabic grammar, however, you have two words you have a lamb and you have b sukoon illa. So be sukoon ilam in Arabic by and large refers to an evil successor. And if you have colorful in Arabic, then it refers generally to a notebook six successor. So when it comes with the sukoon of the lamp,
it is symbolic to an evil successor. When it comes with the Fatah on the lamp, it reverses. So you would say holla foon. Rashid is a noble successor to his father, and it is harmful with the sukoon that's the beauty of the Arabic language that as soon as we say Alhamdulillah I mean All praise belongs to Allah. So how literally means praise and all is derived from the word and Islam and Islam which we have five types and one of which is academically referred to as is developing, all embracing all encompassing. So a queen sometimes denotes greatness. Sharon Harada Naveen a Sharona Lehman, a 10. When is symbolic to significance and any flower represents all embracing a sukoon
denotes an evil successor, when in fact how will denote a good successor. These are the intricacies and the beauty of the Arabic language. Hence we say to people that you can never appreciate or understand the Koran through a translated version. One needs to be very well grounded in the enemy amongst other sciences to begin to appreciate the depth of the Quran for Sophia Coronavirus in lamentable Rama navami la salida for una una
una Shreya. Yet again, Allah makes an exception from those who did wrong 11 but the one who repents and what's the form of repentance Armand he embraces the good and what is the claim of Mr. Romulus on the heart he performs righteous deeds for the Puna Jana these people will enter Paradise. What are you gonna Muna Shakira and they will be no reduction they will be no exploitation they will be no deprivation of any good often in the world is the claim I'm not recognized adequately I'm not paid properly. But in this world, whatever you did allow give it to you in full and allow will not give you less May Allah will give you beyond. In fact, just on the note of gender I mentioned when I
and then we move on. That the first bounty that Jenna will offer to us is something that the world in its entirety from inception to destruction can never give us just the beginning. The start is the entry level. You just get to a reception area you haven't yet been ushered into the hotel just just in the foyer just at the reception. You just enter agenda and the first statement the directors of general will say what are known
as the Havana has an in our banana lafoon Shaku and Lenny
know comment you mean Falcone?
As soon as
as soon as he had Oh, it was of the 22nd to super popular. Allah subhanaw taala says with the dominance of general will enter male lawmakers amongst them. They will say Alhamdulillah he
has an artist is so nice that they will no longer be depression in our life. sadness, depression, distraught, miserable, uneasy and all these related terminologies it's just not there's no hazard there's no grief, there's no depression.
This world is the very opposite maheno Zamani, catarratto Latin Tony uya atikokan Aria de Imam Shafi Rahim Allah says, the pain and the trials of this world are many they will never end while the happy and blissful occasions will only visit you like the tour aids washrooms at Coachella yadi. And we tried to make our whole life of it and the trials two days a year isn't gonna happen. We all tried to reverse it and try new try. The whole world is trying to turn around
I need to be happy more and you know, the life must be less challenging. It's not going to happen. So that's the first thing that donors of general will say there's just no grief. This is no good. Imagine that this is exclusive to Jenna. That one has Rnm fees to do the mineral Lin one and Allah sudomotor kabini will flush from the out from the heart, rancor and antagonism and malice. So you will see your brother in a higher than you, you'll be happy for him but you won't be jealous of him.
You'll be happy for him then listen, you know, you earned it. I'm so happy for you, my brother. Good luck to you. But you won't be generous for him. You won't have nasty or unpleasantness or you know, condescending or attacking or antagonistic about it, you'll be happy for him. That's what the Quran says. We will flush out and as a result of flushing this out of their systems, strangers will become brothers. And I often say in the commentary of this is that when there's rancor and jealousy in the heart, then brothers become strangers. And when it's flushed out of the heart and strangers become brothers, because that's what the Quran says. We will flesh it out a one and they will become
brothers Allah Surin on thrones moussaka believe there will be facing each other. Assume there'll be no fatigue Mohammed Habib, Mahara Jean, and they will not be taken out of paradise. May Allah make us among those fortunate individuals?
I mean, brothers, Juan Mata, Hari is Sunni and Islam Allah. Allah Allah, Allah Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu
alayhi subida when Mr.

he will call me luck and bad
And just the loose translation Oh my disciple. What do you say about this Hadith of the messenger sallallahu wasallam waiting he says that karma is based on five things. And what are the five things testimony that there is no God but Allah, and that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is the Messenger of Allah keeping up the form of prayer, being the arms the fast of Ramadan and pilgrimage to the house for whoever is capable of the journey. And we know that the Hadith explains Minnesota Hi, ladies Avila, Azad, Morocco, Allah Allah, that means you have a conveyance and you have provisions. And if you are a person in authority, then you need to provide for your dependents in your absence, then
the Hajj would be mandatory and obligatory upon such a person. Faith is verbal declaration, consent by the heart and action in accordance with the five pillars, and the evidence of the deeds is in calculable. In other words, it's so much the proof and the testimony of actions, that entire Quran and soon is filled with it and fold with him. And it doesn't end in any way, Paradise by the bounty and the grace of almighty the exalted. Nevertheless, this is consequent to he's been predisposed through obedience to Him and worship of him, since the mercy of God is near to those who do good. In other words, what what we say in here is that there is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
where he said, none of you will enter gender
until his envelope in the mercy of Allah. So the Sahaba said, Okay, that's to ask What about you? Nobody saw Samson even I cannot enter gender until an envelope in the mercy of Allah. So this hadith obviously creates the question that if generous entry is dependent on the mercy of Allah, then what's the need for good actions? What's the good if, if my actions are not adequate? So the answer given by the scholars is as follows that a person becomes enters gender through the mercy of Allah, but he only qualifies for the mercy of Allah through actions. So without actions, you are not eligible you're not eligible. So you say that it's the discretion of the ambassador to give you a
visa. So why do I need a passport when you need a passport to start the process?
You need to start a passport to start the process. Well in the end if I get the passport also any refusal what difference it makes, but that's a subsequent development for now you need to get the passport and apply then then in subsequent to that to his discretion. So till you don't put your passport and your documents in place, we have no clue what's the way beyond so I'm going to do the good actions and then it's the discretion of Allah and surely Allah is kind and merciful, and he will not wrong you or deny you, if you do what is necessary in this world, somebody could prejudice us somebody could be bias against you. Somebody could have you know what, some some some contentious
issues with you or some bone to pick with you or whatever differences you might have in his individual capacity which he grudges you for that but that's not the case with the law. If you default yet there would be consequences. But undoubtedly, as you need to get your passport to qualify for the process, you need to do good actions and I need to do good actions. And then it is at the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada when otira Avon Yeah, boo boo boo boo Jaffa
Blue welcome in activating code in your

everybody and agenda Villa de Vaca, Cebu, Javi armonico. Again, he emphasizes the same point here is more. Moreover, it is said that he gets there by faith alone. If someone argues faith is sufficient itself, we reply, yes. But when will he get there? How many difficult obstacles must be overcome before arriving? And the first of these obstacles? Is that afraid itself? And will he be safe from the denial of faith or not? You could be having human and you could die without human and it's not far fetched. It's not remote. It's not unheard of. It's not inconceivable. There are cases of people who had human and then theory philosophy, thinking independence, you know, open mindedness, perusing
reading, sitting with people with other thoughts, and suddenly they start questioning and that is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made
and he said Yama, submit boo banana. Oh, the turn of hearts keep our hearts in your obedience. So he made the dragon and even
to Allah, why are you repeating this to are we with you, we're not going to forsake you. We're not going to launch you or teach you or abandon you.
keep on asking Allah keep us focused, keep us focused. And he said, easier said than done.
It's easy to say you're going to do that. It's easier. Some of my students and disciples and government they came to me recently, and they visited from from from America, and they came and there are certain questions that they said, you know, what? This has happened to this person and that person, and what's the reason and why and how. And I said, All I can say to you is what one great scholar said to someone. I don't know why this happened to them. Just make sure it doesn't happen to you.
Just make sure it doesn't happen to you, because you don't know when things can change. And that's what the messenger sallallahu wasallam said, he said, innaloo pain is very new in Serbia. You can do it for yourself, that Allah has absolute authority over the hearts of men. And Allah can twist the heart of any person at any time in any direction, some people's artstor from deviation to virtue and others unfortunately, from virtue goes to deviation. So we baccala sheer intellect and wisdom is not adequate to keep us on the track. We need to feed to me the law we need ability from Allah. People want to analyze everything for the softly intellectually, through wisdom through thinking through
application. All these things have been married, but that's not the ultimate the be all the aid from Allah tofi ability from Allah, the inspiration from Allah, that Allah guides the heart, that is the time it dawns upon the individual. And when Allah deprives a person of that, despite all his understanding, the heart just blocks off and shuts down. So if you say EMR is sufficient, what guarantee Do I have will you'll have that we're going to die with faith we only ask Allah to make us among those fortunate people. And and I mentioned Yeah, it's under the in sort of an 11th this year in medical.
Mata Hua funada una
una Raghava that Allah says the pious are those that are optimistic of His mercy, and they feel his torment. And the scholars say that this has to be synchronized in absolute balance, it has to be synchronized. in absolute parents, I've got to be fearing to a level and I got to be hopeful to a level and if there's an imbalance in this year, it will create major ripple effects. So if my hope supersedes my fear for Allah, that I'm going to become sluggish, negligent and careless in my actions or like and forgive a woman was immoral by giving water to a dog, I can relax my brother, I don't need to really pray. I don't need to really do much. And if my anger surpasses that, or the,
the anger of Allah or the punishment of Allah, the roles of allow the fear of Allah dominates the element of hope. And I want to become despondent. People were taken to task for simple things. You know, a community of men in the simple wrong like this, and it was taken to us. I don't think there's much scope and hope and optimism there out for me, why should I exert myself, when it's when when the chances are very slim for me to win the confidence and the happiness of my Allah. So the scholars say that hope and fear has to be synchronized in absolute balance in absolute balance. I've got to be having this constant hope and via constant hope and fear in Allah, that now there's hope
for me but I got to stimulate myself to action. And wasn't goes in diet. Everything needs to be in moderation. You're going to be eat, you're going to be exercising, you're going to have so much you're going to tune yourself, you're going to do this. There's so many things in life that needs that fine
You know, microscopic synchronization, and we go that extra mile to bring that on board, we go that extra mile to do that and take care of this year, in the very same way we connect ourselves with the scholars, we asked the guidance and inspiration, what is the way forward is my mind playing tricks with me that I have become too hopeful of the mercy and become negligent or the hope,
become too hopeful and are no longer fearing a lot, or is fear getting the better of me, I need to hope and fear so I have balance in this life. And continue has a lot of a lot of came home. And then he was sitting with his spouse, and then he was thinking of his family. And then he said, Oh, I don't have that same level of piety. And then he said, Oh, I think I'm a monofin. And then he dashes through the messages a lot. He was an amateur messenger said, that's perfect, it's gonna happen. If you could sustain that level of spirituality at optimum perpetually, then the angels would be greeting you in your bed, the intern will be greeting in your bed, but that's not going to happen.
So he reported to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he advised him accordingly.
And the reputation of hazard Firstly, that God exalted will say to his worshipers on the Day of Resurrection, or worshipers of mine enter the garden by my mercy and divided between you according to your deeds. So you will enter Jannah through the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is the reality and not our action. But by virtue of our actions, we qualified to stand in the queue. By virtue of our actions, we stand in the queue, when you have the right documents, you can come to the counter, but when you add the counter, it doesn't mean it's approved. But you can't join the queue if you don't have the documents. So to stand in the queue, to become deserving, and Elijah,
illegible of the mercy of Allah, we need to come with the documents of EMR the documents of virtue, the documents of sufficient and try. And often it happens that a person comes late in the queue, and the person in charge says, Oh, you had the bag, save you alone? Oh, it's a mom with a kid, come, come, come come forward. Let me just help you quickly stamp you and let you go. And sometimes you get to the counter, and suddenly it's lunch break. Right. Murphy's Law. Right? And then lo and behold, now it's just the other way around. Right? Obviously, in the court of law, that's absolute justice and fairness. But what I'm saying is there are occasions when it should be we don't create
similarity allies, what our allies, our allies, beyond our comprehension, allies to break up or to amazing, but just quickly will infer what we say to draw the analogy close for understanding purposes, that somebody comes late in the queue and expedites the whole process and get it done quickly. And somebody could have arrived early and there could be a glitch or a snag. So these things could happen. But we only become deserving of standing in the queue and processing our application when the necessary documents are in hand. And that's a believer. Oh my Lord. It's it's your kindness if you accept and it is your right if you decline. It's your kindness if you accept
and it's your right if you decline, oh my lord, and I'm a servant. I just gotta beg you I just got to beg you. You know there's this incident. I've read and then if you make my hair stand on end, where it was mannequin dinar from my recollection, I think when dinar Rahim Allah that He came for Hajj, and he seen this hundreds of 1000s and look at the pious how they might rise. Like, you know, we look at so many people you see, imagine
how much food is being consumed.
Imagine how much money they're making. This is how our minds run. You know what? Just imagine the ages what money they you know, our mind runs 1000 ways. And money when the analysis I'm looking at is hundreds of 1000s. And I'm saying Manila. Manila to me. No, I'm just wondering Allah, so many hundreds of 1000s How many are you rejecting? And how many are you accepting?
Look at how they think. We think you know, how much money I mean, you fly.
happens when you fly business class, you find first class and then you look at this whole family, husband, wife and three kids in first class into money. Your mind is doing math zero, right? Because you know what the first class ticket is costing, right? And you said, okay, right now, it's like a three year old bottle of wine. You know, he wouldn't know any difference you put him in an economy class or, you know, he doesn't know how to appraise the electronics or the gadgets of the ctm. Really? Do you see us to pay rent first class private suite tickets here for the kid, and your mind is running and you do the calculations here. And then they got like a nanny and they got to help are
they on board as well moving the kids in my mind because I see this all the time. I see this all the time. And she's taking a long day in the lounge day behind just looking after the kids and okay to take your domestic or your health or your assistant or your nanny on board in first class. Whoa, whoa, whoa, you Your mind is running at another level and doing some, you know, astronomical calculations of some serious funds that are happening here. But look at the pious look at the pious. What's the bias? Manila?
Manila Moto Z. Allah I wish I had a clue who's had you accepted. So
I can go and whisper congratulations to him. And I wish I had a clue to know who's had you rejected because you reserve the right I can just go and console him.
And then I fell off to sleep.
And in that I was told, listen, everybody's had is accepted with one person is rejected. So I break a sweat and I get up.
And my feeling is that I'm the exception. And this this is again, the bias if it does mean
2 million odd that exception can be mean, it ain't me anything me I mean, I'm bad. But that guy's worse than me. I'm not all that bad, man. I know, bad. But hang on mentalism is the exception never applies to me, you know, you know, but yes, if there's somebody who was rewarded, I could be that one individual.
I'm now panicking. I mean, anxiety, I'm pacing around wondering, the day passes, I go to sleep, who's this person and I'm telling the dream, you're not the exception. It's a person from the boat tribe by the name of our own. And this is his whereabouts and his locations. He's the person who tragically is has been rejected. So I like silent relief that I'm not the exception. But I'm also distraught and distress for the individual himself. So I get up in the morning, and I start making my way about moving around to finally I find this locality apprentice in a beautiful guitar, about kindness to balance because the the tail ends about nobility to parents. So this way, I reference
this incident and I read it. So I make my way to finally I come to a particular tent and group and ask the people here from this town and villages. Is there a man by the name, of course is the sage of the age is nobody's bias, no bias.
I'm finding this dichotomy I can't reconcile. This is what I see in the vision. This is what people tell me. But anyway, I moved my way and I come there, and he's engaged in prayer. And it's like, Santa Monica. My name is Manny Medina. Mashallah, what brings you and so and so, yes. And then there is this extended silence.
I don't know how to break the news to you, brother. No, go for it. Tell me what needs to be told. I'm so interested to tell you and I'm really helpful to inform you that I had a dream and a vision. And I will talk I was told that everybody's had is accepted with the exception of one person, and is gradually introducing it. And for a moment, I thought that was the exception, only to subsequently be informed that it was a person by this name and identity. And my own work leads me to you. And I'm sorry. But I just thought that I come and tell you that, you know, this is the reality. So he breaks down into tears. And he said, I appreciate it. And I respect your emotion and concerns. The truth
is, is not the first time a dream like this has been seen about me. This has been going on for some years. This has been going on for some years. Coming back to the point I will say that all life you accept it, it's your kindness. If you reject it, it's your life. But I must serve and I have to continue and persist.
I'm a servant. I'm going to continue and persist that that says my duty. That's my duty. But then look here. It's not like a lies unfair and unjust. Now whenever allies flee from that
in the lobby.
So can you tell me more about yourself rather, I was in my youth, I was in my prime. And I was a bit high consideration. I had some intoxicants and I was a bit high. It was the last day the last night of Shabbat preceding the month of Ramadan. And I came home and it was a bit high and I was in my focus. And my mom said to me, Alfredo Yeoman, Minh Chava
Ramadan used to be for nurses so to speak of sakurada I'm gonna study minima isn't my son. This is such a day even rebels change, even people who have demonstrates abandon the life of sin. Siobhan is ended his comments as a breeder, so mine was somebody and fast, and you are drunk, and I was high and I didn't have my focus, and I let loose on my mom and I slapped my mom.
And I floored my mom.
And I injured my mom. And I lost my balance. And I didn't realize what I did to my mom. And by the time consciousness set into me, I realized I couldn't retract my words, and I did what I had done to my mom. And it's been that day to this day, a good 30 years has passed, and my hunch continues to be exposed as unaccepted. And every year a sage a pious person sees a dream. So if there's anything I can tell you money, good luck to you. This is proof that you're the pious person. Because every year this vision is seen at the hands of a pious person. And 30 years in a row. I've been told this message, but my duty is, look, I've done this wrong, but the consequences are painful. And from
this, we learned that parents are something we need to be very, super sensitive about better
Something we need to be super sensitive about, we hurt them, it can set us back in serious ways. And then management in our window to Allah. And he was told again to tell him to persist, and we will forgive him. But he will have to face the price of hurting his mom like this year. So we asked a lot, that we are never amongst those that hurt our balance, and we are amongst those that bring joy and happiness and goodness to them. But the point that I was elaborating here is that allows right is to refuse it's his kindness to accept. And if he chooses to refuse as a servant, to continue asking, that same person gets canceled, what are you doing? I'm appealing the cancellation is what
you're doing. I'm going back into the system, I'm applying again and if they refuse to appeal it again, and the litigation and the process and you continue and what's this, it's a job, it's an interview, it's a visa, it's a it's a document and you continue appealing and appealing because you want what you're claiming for what you submitted. Allah I am a servant, I am a servant and My duty is no more than humanity and to ask you and beg you and it is your discretion. We asked a lot really sheer mercy to make us among those that he forgives inshallah,
you have one advantage document.

That's testimony to very much what I just said before you all disciple in so far as you do not act you will not find recompense, you will not find recompense from Allah. But this is a lot of it is just that when you put action Allah will compensate you. So why he has the Liberty and the pre rockethub to decline. He is just unfair, that he will not decline without reason. If there is pride, arrogance, haughtiness, or we lack in some ingredient that that would have consequences, but allow them not unfairly unduly dismiss us. Our is to guide in is too merciful. There's just too many verses. My final love will be in Chicago to
Wakanda low Shakira Heidi Mazza concluding verses of the Jews of the Quran Surah Nisa, Allah says, What do I get in punishing? Do? What a thrill do I get? You say no, it's a thrill to do this. It's a game. It's a feeling, what do I get? What do I get? What do I get out of it?
What do I get out of it?
What does Allah get in Chicago? provided you are grateful? And then
how are you grateful to
your gratitude is by bringing in Mr. Akana lauscha. Given Halima, you will not find anybody more grateful and appreciative of your actions that allow and this is absolutely the truth in everything that Allah says. But we, we see this sometimes in life, you need to be exposed to how ungrateful man is to appreciate how grateful Allah is. Sometimes we have to contend with men, fellow humans to see how long it takes to get them to accept an apology from you to appreciate how an apology accepts apologies. Your own Beloved, your mom, your dad, your spouse, your kids. You did the wrong, but it will not No, it will not see. Yeah, you did this. You defaulted. You betrayed. I appreciate mistake
done. I'm apologizing now what do I lick the ground for the rest of my life? What do I say? I'm wrong. But the process of begging continues and this honey just makes me cry. Yeah, everybody know better, but
somehow, so must have felt the need to lock a window
on my server, if your sons occupied the earth and occupied the the atmosphere and occupied the skies insincerely you tell me that you change him. I promise you, I'll forgive you. And I won't even rave about the fact that I forgave you.
What are Abadi, I was able to translate it doesn't mean much to me, I'll forgive you and close it.
If a person would forgive you and it was a huge offence, then the reminders of their forgiveness was a separate issue you will have to deal with
it's a separate issue. You will have to deal with that.
Because of this, you lucky, just due to other reasons I forgave you otherwise, you know, I have second thoughts, but it's just my kindness. You know, just because I'm so good. If it was anybody, oh man, it's like, Have you forgiven me? Have you forgiven me or not? Have you forgiven me or not? They say marriage is a union of two good forgivers.
Marriage is a union of two good individuals who can forgive. That's it because that's what marriage is all about. I need to forgive, you need to forgive me and that's the way that we'll judge. But if I graduate you hope this really is not going to turn but a lot that comes into hand and Allah says, I will forgive you. And I will delete every trace of that sin. I will erase it from the memory of the angels who recorded it. I will delete it from the earth on which it was perpetrated. And somehow Uber who will answer Danica Java, the generation of 13, I will delete it from the memory of the number that perpetrated it.
As a human, Elisa, Alicia, so when you come before me, nobody will be able to give negative evidence against you.
Now, sometimes, you need to deal with humans to appreciate our love forgives. And sometimes you need to deal with humans to see how ungrateful they are to know how to appreciate in fact elevation is interleaved. That when the brothers of gentlemen will enter jameelah Miko salons they will say I mean brothers.
So when they would see the hospitality that Allah will lay out for them, they will be humbled and guilty. How about that fathers is what a lavish spread. This is just splendid, guilty that we love it, but we don't deserve it.
We love it, but we don't deserve it. So let me let me put things into perspective. Somebody comes to your country comes to visit you at your home. And then you give him a bit of a dry reception.
like okay, you know, what's in your driver to receive him, you know, personally, you give him some, you know what the simple meal nothing is nothing out of the ordinary. And he accepts your hospitality and moves on. Subsequently, you end up in his country. And he shuts his business and he mobilizes everything for you. And he lays it out the 100 years the levy spread. Now inside your soul is reproaching you that you know what I couldn't give this man a quarter of what he gave as much as I'm enjoying him. I feel terrible about myself. I feel terrible. What is he? You went there? And he laid it out And now for the future? You plan it for him? But this is he already was your guest and
you need to deliver for him. And then he reciprocates it in a greater way. let you know what you need in this world. And I know what I need in this world. And when you get to generalizing like Listen, I've got it all for you. Yeah, these are the foods these are the damsels This is the palace This is the the layout. This is the embellishments. This is like Oh, I love this. But you know what, this is a bit
too much. Not that I don't want it. But really, it depends on the duration of Allah, can we just renew our gratitude? And can we prostrate to you? And Allah says the demographics have changed today You are not my servant as much as you are my guest and I don't burden my guests in any way.
bada I have freed you I have freed you from the responsibility of worship. Just see my servants what I've got out for you. So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala we're gonna level Shakira anonima Allah appreciates Allah appreciate I give this analogy often I travel and from time to time you try and buy a thing for your spouse for your kids or for someone and you know you tie and you get into an airport you try to select the article and the item you buy if you're concerned about keeping it in your hand luggage you're worried about going through customs and with care you put it in your you know your cabin baggage and you every time somebody opens the cabin, can you just hang on Can I move
my bag please? I've got something fragile there and all this precaution you take and you come home I don't really like this
I don't like the color. I don't like the brand. I don't like the name can I walk you through the pains that I have gone through apart from the money I've invested like I'm holding this thing here with dear life with passion can eat in my hand like it's putting it in my cabin concerned about customs and going through the process keeping it with my receipts here. It's tax free duty free and keeping those the only two come over like I got this. Yeah. Anyway, thanks. Finally when there are no man Oh no. So holla I'm investing in solving with no guarantee that it would be
Acknowledge, but when I say Allahu Akbar, I dropped my case, I have absolute guarantee my lord is appreciating it.
I have absolute guarantee, I have no doubt that at this stage as I'm restraining my gaze or controlling my tongue, or protecting myself and doing my lord is observing is what school is monitoring, and he's going to reward me for it. May Allah make us amongst those that we can appreciate the favors of others as well.
So a disciple insofar as you do not act, you will not find recompense, it is related that a man from the tribe of Israel worship caladiums of the exalted for 70 years. Thus Allah the Exalted wish to show him to the angels. So he sent an angel to him to inform him that in spite of his worship, entering the garden was not befitting for him, he was not going to entertain now, when he heard this, the worship of the blind, we are created for worship, and it is incumbent on us to worship Him. When the angel went back, he said, Oh, my Lord, you know what he says best, God exalted, replied, since he did not turn away from worshiping us, we will not turn away from him with our
grace witness, oh, my angels I have forgiven him. You know, I mentioned this, that once we were here somewhere, and we went for a little stroll in the water, and there was a gentleman that it cost is broad, and I mentioned it many talks of minds. And I still remember distinctly because it left an indelible impression in my heart. And so we were just like having a bit of a social discussion. And we asked the brother house to buy a house deficient and local Canadian brother and he was having a good day. And he said that I'm enjoying the day in the sun. The fish is a bonus.
I'm enjoying the day in the sun. And the fish is a bonus. And it hit my heart. And I said I wish I can apply that same theory with
that I am I'm enjoying chatting with my Allah and the acceptance is a bonus.
People go fishing Now what did you wasted your time says no, it was just an outing to the barbecue. It was quality time. Well, if you get a fish, good luck. Good luck. But that's not the motivation. It's just the day out it's just a day out. And I keep on using this in my talk. How great it would be if we could apply that analogy. Are you making dog for so long over what gave rise in your life? What came right in your life? I'm enjoying chatting with my Creator. I'm enjoying chatting with my Creator acceptance is a bonus. acceptance is a bonus. That's even gets accepted Good luck, the more the better the merrier. Otherwise, I'm just enjoying like you've got your odd and it's a day out it
is just basking in the sun it's just enjoying the sunlight. And acceptance is a bonus I'm just enjoying chatting but today some of us alphabet in our draft we almost like dictating to Allah like I need this I need this this today that tomorrow that the day after.
What's that brother relax, who you talking to? who you're talking to?
You know, there was this guy used to make the drop Dun, dun dun. Like to second law, brother the next was it. He said one day I sat down and asked Allah everything, not just like refer to prayer number one.
Can you see this? Are you kidding?
Are you talking to?
I have no rights. The whole thing of Dora is my weakness and his greatness, my feebleness and His Majesty is not the only fluffy bunny supplicating to this Lord in a discreet tone, in a soft tone in a gentle tone. I'm a beggar. a beggar right down there. That's why I am absolutely down new, this majestic beam. And you see people from around the Kaaba. And you see these people around you often have seen an eco Alba Nico, the manifestation of this verse in Surah room in the 21st tours, people are there in the numbers in the multitudes in the scores in the diversity of language, color and race. And and each one cried his heart out and you can just see this and sedatives you might not you
understand the language you appreciate the accent, you understand the whispers and you in control. It's just a sight to see how people cry. And it's painful to know if you cannot cry. It's painful to know if you cannot cry. So my duty is to beg you my dog and really the process is so beautiful. This humiliation in begging man but his honor in begging a lot.
When you you know man I often mentioned this year you go to a person and you ask him for a favor. He won't fulfill the favor but he tells the world yeah it was by me also a complete the sentence you didn't help him.
complete the sentence that he has been to me a lot of times for loans man has been a lot of times. Yeah, it's been to me.
You never gave him a dime and you never give him a dry sentiment. Why did you say that? But his eyes been a lot of times to me yeah it's not my job many times he's not my daughter many times. So men without fulfilling will remind you that you knock the door or the Almighty will keep it a secret and he knows best way to fulfill and when not the season the knowledge and the wisdom of Allah. Allah Rasool Ullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has he
was a new American cobbler in Tucson a co worker
in Oman and it will be bested in Georgia De
La Hoya de la Molina de la boca Rani Salatu was Salam
What's up man Allah, Allah Allah Amani,
the messenger sallallahu Sallam says call yourself to account before you are called on to account. Check yourself before you officially check. You know yourself if you're traveling. You're your ducks in a row. Have I got the limited currency? Or is it over? You You don't wait for them to check you know yourself the articles that are getting the items? Is it all allowed? Is it within my allowance rate or not? So you do all your checks and balances on yourself. So when you're going to do an audit on you when they go to do an investigation on you. Everything is in a row in the same way before you interrogated by the angels on the day of the AMA interrogate yourself, put yourself to death.
call yourself to account before you are called to account and weigh up your deeds before they are weighed out for you. And Leilani used to say whosoever believes that he will attain his goal without effort is a wishful thinker, is a wishful thinker. You know, he's got high hopes that is going to happen. You dream in my brother, you live in fool's paradise. caraway can awaken and understand life in its reality. It's not going to happen like this. And also ever believe we will reach his goal by the expanding of his presumptions, that you, you you you think by by by by by doing an action you're going to get it that's a fallacy that's also untrue. It's not going to happen in in either way.
And as an adversary may Allah be pleased with him he says seek in the garden without an action is a sin from among sins. In other words, like you did a wrong you perpetrated the crime that's a sin to ask Allah for agenda without doing the necessary actions. This is also assess if a person is not getting married and is making what they need for a kid and then he goes to the front so you can check my daughter's not getting accepted brother be real, be real my brother, we really need to get married and follow procedures follow procedures, that it's not going to happen otherwise, we not we not money your money has allowed the miracle is gonna happen to us. When when the angel came to her
and said that
America, and zakia, the angel of the Lord Oh Virgin Mary, to give you the glad tidings that intelligent child will be born to you. And when a man is around responded, there's only two ways the child could be born legitimate or illegitimate, permissible or impermissible. And I'm free for both.
There's a verse of the Quran, the
only when a man says knee pressure while I'm here globally, but hang on, and how's this going to happen? Because I am not immortal, and I'm not married. And the angel said, well, that's exactly because allow us to miraculously give you the birth of a child where you will not be wedded nor would you be immortal and yet a lovely value. So that was a miracle to
happen to be who you if I need a child or I want a child I need to cry out obviously we need to take the measures that needs that Allah has put in place. So to ask Allah for paradise without making the necessary actions is also a sin from amongst the sin. These are the words of simplicity and indication of the true state of affairs to just look at these are like summaries of them. This is such a profound statement. This is such a profound statement.
What did he say an indication of the true state of affairs is to give up paying attention to actions and not to give up actions Wow.
So when we say when we say that, then your actions are not the ultimate in rescuing you. We not insinuating or we are not advocating that you should abandon action. We say perform action but stop relying on action.
stop relying on action.
This is the key thing. When we say put your trust in Allah. We not say abandon measures. We say adopt measures but don't rely on measures.
You see, these things need to be put into fine balance. So when a message is a lot It was 11 was, he took amnesty in the game of Hera on the journey of migration, and the enemies game to the mouth of the game. And Abubakar says, if they look at the feeds, they will spot us.
Right? And panic and the problem of adolescent generation of Muslim mother nuclear weaponry begins, namely Allah was added to our bucur What's the concern of those two, the third of whom is allowed, so relax aligns with us. But having said that, he didn't exit the game.
He stayed in the game. And the scholars tell us that that's the balance to marry, plan with reliance. That's the balance, then you adopt the means, but you don't put the reliance on the means.
So forsaking means is also not the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we need to be clear on this. Yes, the proposers have adopted means and then to adopt means and put reliance on means is also not the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but to adopt the means, and then put the reliance on a lot. This is what the message is a lot of has taught us. So we're not saying the year abandon the action. We say stop focusing on the action. Stop being amongst those people that you know what I have done this year, and this is enough for me and it's done. And I find the statement to be so rich in its meaning, and so profound in its output.
What are you Salatu was Salam aleikum
when Ashima when it is in relation
with Amanda de la Amani, the messengers a lot ism says the eschewed man is one who passes judgment on himself and works for what is after death. So that's the focus and there's this verse of the Quran. For many you didn't
do the only Islam. Whomsoever Allah wishes to guide Allah opens up his heart to Allah opens his heart to get through. So he has inshallah, one particular scholars set in the company of a great mentor. And he spent a good five to six weeks. And after spending that six weeks, his mentor asked him in the duration you spend with me, what did you achieve? He said, what the grace of Allah all the reservations and apprehensions and anxiety and reluctance I had in understanding many injunctions of the deen, all of that has been flushed out. So now I have like this embrace and this comfort, all the data of a life just like clean and pure and wholesome to me. I'm not skeptical of
an easy, I'm not reluctant. I don't have anxiety. I'm not uncertain, I just have this ease about every order. Well, I don't have any issues with anything, which was great. And prior to coming here I have, you know, apprehensions, uneasiness, wondering why what's the potential wisdom about it, etc.
So all that has been flushed out. So anyway, the verse of the Quran, the one who Allah guides, Allah opens his bosom to the truth.
And then the Sahaba asked, What's the proof that someone's bosom has been open to the truth and the messages, a lot of sense, the three things would happen at the jatheon during World War Two.
You will find gradually he starts to syncline in from worldly embellishments, he uses it but he's not like all that excited. This is an amazing verse of the Quran, where Allah lankans things,
to affirm governments and in life in our in Japan.
To Dumisani wise in Africa, well, good
to see so amazing brothers and sisters to beautiful. So Allah says the example of a person's life in this world, right? If somebody tells you, in two words, give me a summary of your life, two words my friend
20 years or 30 years or 40 years into us doesn't happen in one verse. A lot condensed condenses human existence on Earth, one verse. There's so many things that happens to our life but Allah puts it in one verse Flm Let it be known to you and number two dunya that this worldly life is lacking.
The first phase is playing with that one, and then supposedly they progress to amusement. So first you play. It's a topless toy. It's a topless thing, and then you move on. Now that rattle is gone. That's for the smaller one. I need some lyrics. I need some sounds. I need some tones. I need something more serious. Medical round is not for me. I need a circus. Now. The Plato's phones I need the real phone.
Number higher teutonia laragon was enough and then they move on into the adolescence in the internet.
deans. So now it's adornment, nice beautification. Now it's done and now it's dressing now it's speaker conscious now it's image anxiety was enough. And then you move on with the foghorn vena cava Catherine fill
this I just cry and cry like, oh my lord how you've put it together. It could only be your speech. And then you get into mutual rivalry we've passed that stage and phase is like you're married yet? How many kids were you earning where you stay? Where you fly? Which holidays? You go. What class you travel. Okay. Okay, like your watch what brand nice. Awesome. So now your eyes become brand conscious. You start looking with a different eye. What the foghorn dynaco. What the Kessel Run Phil I'm one you will
get mentally lazy it's like you're not dependable ends there now like and this will be life is like the fall cameras anyways. It's like rain are in Japan. We go far
too many photos for one, too, to make comments like this beautiful green lush full garden. It's in its prime. It's wonderful. A person gets on his lawn mower Sunday morning disturbs the peace in the neighborhood. And he's busy mowing his lawn and doing it here. It's his pride and dogmas and come then the kids were simply they had no barbecue. Yeah, don't they park your car, your adult recurring kitchen, don't play ball your Can you see this year, it takes pride. But hang on green grass doesn't remain green forever. Seasons need to change. And green starts with rain and wetness becomes dryness. And that very thing in which you took your pride. Now a dog comes and remains there. And
somebody comes and drops the poo there and something else happens. And now it loses its essence and its beauty and it's gone. And from where to where and then it's just reduced to dust and particles and that's the end of it. So Allah says governmentally lazy, are reachable.
It's like that rain and that origin which impresses the disbeliever the scholars of Pepsi try and understand this. Why did Allah say a garden and a lush full lawn impresses a disbeliever? When the truth is It impresses a believer as well. It's it's, it catches the eye of any person it can. It's beautiful. It's breathtaking. Instead of building it's relaxing. So how come the brand restricted the excitement of the lustful garden to the eye of a disbeliever that could get you sick and all the scholars unpack my brother, can you see how they go into the depth Allah says but that's that's joy to the eye, it's can be to the eyes pleasure to the eye of anyone why it is believer. And the
scholars explained that a believer also gets impressed with it, but it doesn't get obsessed with it.
When a person for whom this word is the ultimate, he gets obsessed with the disease. You see, my God, a believer buys a new car hamdulillah it's nice to have a god but May Allah give us our own convenience in general, a belief or what a good house. Thanks for the compliments pray that we have a house in paradise. Pray that we have loved Moliro souls in religion now Pharaoh min Antonia Murphy ha, oh my Sahaba if you have the space of a lash or a wolf, just so much that to feed can get into paradise that is better than this whole world.
Just so much you can just squeeze in,
if I can use that phrase, if you can just get it is that your two feet if you can get so much space in general is better than this whole world. So a believer will use the world he will enjoy it, he will benefit but it won't be the be all and end all. While for the one who doesn't have a man this is the ultimate it's the absolute.
So what's the sign that Allah has opened up your heart to the truth at the Jaffe under
this inclination? I told you. Why did Allah specify that it is believer? A believer will have it but his gaze will be there beautiful house, we sleep on soft beds. And in our grave we are in comfort, believable constantly make that comparisons. so thirsty we drank this evening on the day of Korea to be saved from the thirst. That's the believers are constantly he will be focusing there. So he will moderately indulge, but it will not be the cutoff point danika

this is where the knowledge seizes. But it does
better when fish are given.
The knowledge post demise doesn't apply. They don't have a thought pattern in terms of reflecting over that, at the root will inevitably lead or influence. Right and then inclining towards the house of eternity when it gets to the moment the new zone and preparation for that prior to death. And then the parent goes on to say what may you did a little walk around
on how I got into your sock my doofus and the one whom a lot of us needs and DBAs than a lot of restrictions.
Buddhism in his chest and for him to obey a lot is so cumbersome. So colossal so difficult is like he is told to climb and ascend into the heavens
you know sometimes you ask a kid for something the frown and the scar or leave it with agreed myself leaving. Whoa, what a painful stand. What a moan groan what an exclamation. What a body Oh man, just back off, I'll do it myself. When that was not going to quench my thirst. I'm better off dead water.
There's like so much reluctance to do it. But let his friend Come on, let them be a game and he springs up and he runs in his upper. So those people whose answer dvn May Allah protect us, may Allah protect us. For them to obey Allah is as if they are to climb and ascend the heavens. It's a tall order. It's a big ask. And this is nothing other than divine deprivation, deprivation to do good that it constitutes a burden for them.
There are people that could pace their shops up and down. And you know, place the code he knows and work all day. But when it comes to nocturnal prayer and prayer, then suddenly the legs are sweating in this pain, and now you know what? They need a good chair to rock on. But the many man is active all day facing his shop and you wonder how do you reconcile the same human would pain and you know, there's a friend of mine. He sells his chocolates and that and he's just like a simple man, but a wonderful human. So he says I offer people ristretto chocolates and he has some nice, good brands. So it's like, oh, sorry, brother. I would have support you but I'm diabetic. So I really cannot eat
it. Right. Okay. Okay, listen, brother. It's on the house. I'm not going to be charging you heavy. Okay, I'll just eat it to please you. What happened to your diabetes?
And he's like, okay, I realize your pocket is diabetic.
Your Pocket is diabetic. Like I'm sending this all brother. You know what? I'm diabetic man. I really I would have supported you. Okay, let's improvise on the house. It's from me It's It's on the house. Take it. Okay brother to appease you. What happened to your diabetes. And then you realize it's easy just don't have the muscles to spend. I went this amazing thing in Metallica Tenzin, this is so amazing. So this is Arabic, right? It's just a beautiful language, man. What can I tell you, man, you really appreciate this language. So you have in Arabic, there is a word called shock. There's a word called buffer. There's a word called shock. And there's a word called Jude. And then
there's a word called Sahar. So it's in magnetical transit as well.
family wanted the nanny caffine
so under this is mentioned, yeah. So when is when is when he's dude, when he saw vocally means when you mice, you mice. So you don't give anybody else you eat yourself. You know what you hold you keep yourself and nobody else gets. You have to be doing a deal on the quality of the monopoly and they blocked the hands without the jelly and
drink and don't tie your fist to your neck, meaning you own it. Nobody else gets anything that is broken. But like any evil if you don't control it, it gets worse. And evil. It just gets worse and worse. It just goes beyond and beyond it starts with the ended of that. You have this condition people talk of obsessional compulsive disorders, right. And you see a person even in control himself, than before he leaves laws gonna open didn't check the door 10 times.
You're gonna break the handle my friend, the three might break it later. You're gonna break it now. Right? And the man has this obsessional Compulsive Disorder. And he's watching his left foot, and then you start to do and you're done with it. And he's still busy with the doors of the left foot. Like this is obsessional compulsive disorders, right? It's taking the batteries control it because you didn't stop it, you didn't control it in its tracks, and it's overtaken you it's consumed you.
So Bohle, if you don't contain it, it goes beyond and it reaches the level of shock. And what is sure, Chevy is when now you cannot spend on others that was first. Now you don't have a heart to spend on yourself. Like you're thirsty, you traveling. You need a drink now but the airport is too expensive as I wait to report the flight and then when they give the service then we'll hang on my brother, what's the good of the money man? By the drink by the drink, you feed in for it. You have the money swipe the garden by the drink, man. Relax and do what you need to do, man. Like now you're hoarding now the thrill is not to use the thrill is how much you leave behind when you die. Now the
thrill takes a different dimension. Thanks Simon is what I die with what I die with. So the Robert sasm had this lamb and they distribute it and then he asked what's left
The shoulder piece that's left the province or some said no, let me rephrase it. Everything is left besides the shoulder, meaning what we gave a lot that's left for us in Africa and what we didn't leave is not left for us.
What's left? I shoulda said the shoulder he said no, no, everything is left meaning kept meaning preserve yaku as a man a man even a silica a llama. name for appname Ola vista abolade. Oh,
man says mines mines Oh man, you really can't say that there's only three things what you ate is yours. What you gave in charity is yours. And when you use the boys yours, that's it, nothing else.
So it goes to the second level, and that is shot, and what is shot where you cannot spend on yourself, and this is evil. And that's why the Quran says, or maybe you can show how nuptse he Bakula
if Allah frees your heart from greed, and then you are successful individuals, and you are successful, and that reminds me of that incident under the same ayah it is in sort of the hash, which is also known as the chapter of Napoleon. Because when the spoils of banana bread came to the Muslim, then the Prophet sallahu made a proposal to the Sahaba. He gathered the Mahajan and on site and said, Listen, I've got this point that have come in this booty. So I'm just thinking, I want to give this and channel this exclusively to the margerine.
But I need the answers to no I don't I'm not discriminating. And I'm not excluding you. My aim to give it to the mohajir is to give them financial independence. So in a disguised form, they will become detached from the unsalted financial dependence. So effectively, I'll be helping the answer as well, if you understand what I'm saying, basically. So instead of distributary, to the margin and the unsolved unsolved, been phenomenal holes, and they've been helping them, so let me give this exclusive to the margin, they can take it and off they go. And then the answer, you know that you know, the answer, the margin won't be now riding on your back and drawing from you in any way.
Because this will make them financially independent. So that we find when there's a problem of Allah, it's your discretion, and we respect your view, and we don't have any objections. And we don't doubt your vision, or accuse you of nepotism or favoritism or anything. But sadly, olana was the neither of these and I just have a slight change to that proposal of yours. So we were just like, okay, what's gonna happen now? So instead of Allah, can I propose that you give all that wealth to the Mahajan? And still leave them with us? And we'll still give them what we give them?
I mean, imagine you winded up in state. And then the one brother says to the other Brother, listen, we only have to shave this house. 100 I have my house. You don't have to keep the house. You keep the house. In my shed you keep the husband, let's be practical. You need a house. I have a house here. I bought my son a house here and use those and if you keep the house, because I got three cars, my sister You don't? Can you think of it?
Can you imagine that? Once you have money sitting there ordered adequate in your Mo, and that's my share. That's my right and he's entitled, I'm not saying is not entitled, what's your life is your life? That's a lot given right? And what Allah has given you is your right but just imagine this vision. And Subhanallah when the when the when, sadly, a lot of centers, the answer was so impressed. They said May Allah bless you. And the Prophet of Allah was ecstatic and elated. And this verse will reveal that you can only say this. If your heart is clean of greed. That's the time you can make a statement like not if your pocket is full, or your balance is brimming. But if your heart
is clean or green, that's the only time you can make a statement like this, that give you ease and let him have with me also what difference it makes to me or my hand up save a government. So that's two things in terms of rising withholding. Then you have a third thing called Jude, Jude is
a young Rama, Rama,
Rama, Rama, that you eat and you feed
you Allah gives you you eat also and you feed you enjoy eating and feeding. And that's wonderful. Again, like even if you don't care when it gets worse, good, one good leads to another good good begets good, evil begets evil, one virtue ends up in another virtue. So the same Jude if you continue practicing it, it reaches a higher level of suffer and what does suffer mean? suffer means and yet
where the throne are no longer is to enjoy. The thrill is to see others enjoy your wealth.
That is another level you're going for holiday. No no I had enough holidays. I need to send my nephew for
Today, we're going to aim and we've done enough numbers but they've never seen the GABA. Now my thrill is to see how others can see the GABA. Now the kick and the excitement is not that I use, I get a thrill to see others use from what Allah gave me May Allah make us among them. May Allah make us among that really brothers, that's another level. There is a fake pleasure in Rome in your gaze, there is a wholesome pleasure in restraint in your case. There is a fake pleasure in what in your world, there is a wholesome pleasure in spending your wealth, we've tasted the first we've never been exposed to the network. May Allah expose us to that. So anyway, that's just basic words we wrap
up on this year we haven't even like began. But like we say, we say the aim is never to end and complete. I always quote these words of Tisha pisaq Rahim Allah, Who said the aim is not to end the Quran, but to end your life in the service of the salon. The aim is not to end the
bottom corner massud in a
suit, to end your life in the services of the salon. So we we pray and we ask Allah, Allah showing his choices, blessing Solomon, bizarrely, Rahim Allah, and all the pious predecessors, and I think that the brothers and sisters would draw from the lessons that were conveyed. And then we continue to stay in this work and if allow words, probably we'll meet up at some other juncture where we could do again another discourse, but whenever the opportunity does present, sit in the company of the scholars of only the Harlem in Harlem, there's always someone Moeller that and we need to continuously sit at the feet of scholars. So we continue to learn in this journey of knowledge and
in this journey of Travis in this earth, until finally we meet our Creator Alhamdulillah
