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

Bismillah many Rahimi

00:00:09--> 00:00:13

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

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

That was Salam ala rasulillah.

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

So we obviously up against time.

00:00:54--> 00:01:17

And I think I have made this clear and inshallah I pray that I reiterate my sentiments that we're not to walk out of here saying that I have completed 30 verses, or I've memorized X amount. But we are asking and hoping and praying and wishing that we've connected with the whole on a companion came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he asked for advice. And you can see this in a minute.

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

Maybe we can just ask those that have questions. Now they can just hold it there.

00:01:23--> 00:01:55

Not that I want to exclude any questions, but there's a fair chunk here. And time is against us. And sometimes while speaking you could just interrupt the atmosphere. So if the brothers and sisters could, you know, just keep it and let's see if the time permits, then inshallah we will try and engage with it. If not, then you know, we'll have to explore it at some other time, etc. So a person came to the master, somebody was sent him and he asked for advice. And the prophets, Allison recited one verse, For many, many myths are the number one the common myth father,

00:01:56--> 00:02:12

whoever does an atom of good will see it, whoever does an iota of evil will have to contend with its consequences, he will have to live and say, he said, Yeah, cleaning of Matan, or these two atoms are sufficient advice for the rest of my life.

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

This is enough. That's it.

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

And I gave a talk very recently, and it was one of my talks after Ramadan, I think we uploaded it on the app as well.

00:02:23--> 00:02:51

Where I spoke about different examples of how the Sahaba had this amazing ability to instantly and permanently detach from evil and embrace virtue. And for us, it's a very, very gradual and long drawn process. We just cannot do this immediately and instantly, and the Sahaba could do it once and it was done.

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

So there is this phobail bin Ahmed bin mulloway

00:02:56--> 00:03:02

happens in LA Kareem has mentioned it in southern Morocco, in the third volume on page 363

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

that he was a potential assassin of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he came close up the provinces of his making the law, and this man came close. And the reason a lot of them said a footballer, you footballer, right? It's like yeah, that's me. And then we saw some put his hand on his chest. mother wanted to hug the two big enough said what are you thinking about? Nothing much. I think my sisters By the way, let me set some Speak up, speak up, Revelation will expose it.

00:03:36--> 00:03:56

And at that time, he was he was busy planning and orchestrating to kill the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he says when then we have Allah put his hand on my chest obviously we don't have that spirituality and we don't have the Navy of Allah but we do have his teachings. And suddenly I felt tranquility permeate in mind entire body.

00:03:58--> 00:04:07

For second, Appleby was just like just settling in peace and calm. And I say to people, and you would know when a person intense

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

restlessness kicks in

00:04:11--> 00:04:45

not committing this and just the thought you just orchestrated and planning and deliberating and try and how I'm going to juggle and do this already. You would fight depression would go up your heart, uneasiness, restlessness. Okay, there is this adrenaline pumping into you because I'm going to do it like this. And I want to go and all that. Yeah. So momentarily, you get the kick. But after you commit that sin, you hit a bigger low than what you were in before the sir. If you were depressed prior to the sun, after that you are 100 times more depressed you like where am I and what's happened in my life. Where am I?

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

And I've been someone who asked that question, how can answers that question? So anyway, it says then I I repented and lamented and I embrace the faith.

00:05:00--> 00:05:32

Now in the fresh Muslim is a new Muslim is a recent revert. He says I walked by, and a pass by a woman with whom we had an old relationship. We had an illicit relationship and we used to get together and Mr. Chat and the usual is used to happen. So I pass by and she obviously entices me and she invites me, but she doesn't know I have done the beach in my life. She doesn't know I have made a new commitment with myself. Can I say she doesn't know either that I've attended the discos of Sudoku.

00:05:33--> 00:06:00

I'm a different person. I have made choices with my life. So he he passes and she says kung fu Baba let's let's chat and let's have done correlate aluma Ilha de papel que la la la la la la variety Mohammedan waka de la ville yo ma took several s Namo la add in a lot he up have a Nina was she ruku Yahushua

00:06:02--> 00:06:25

I said Sister Sister I'm not the full Donna you know I have met the greatest human I have embraced his faith I have accepted his creed I have reverted to his Islam. I will not entertain indulge or comment or perpetrate adultery or infidelity or illicit religion. And if you allow me The moment I would introduce you to the very beauty of Islam join me and become a believer.

00:06:27--> 00:06:51

Subhana Allah This was desperate. Not for us. Unfortunately, it is a very, very slow process. time pass age moves on, and we still deliberating. And before we know we we've we've lost our grip, and we have not achieved it. So we need to make that commitment of trying to effect the change in our life immediately. May Allah grant us that understanding.

00:06:53--> 00:07:37

I mean, to manifest Samba aifc fabby como la Ilaha, more. So this is again, another approach of the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala reminds you listen, I'm asking you, politely, I'm telling you in a gentle tone. But if you don't get your act together, I can strike at any time I can strike at any time. You know, every relation in this world is both sided. This is what I say. Although one is more dependent on the other, right, a father tells his son, Listen, don't have that attitude, I can teach you a lesson. But the father also knows he needs the child. The child needs the father the parent more but the parent also also needs the child that is that is the person is married. And five, just

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

got newly married, how you all hamdulillah is the best thing. I don't know why it took me so long to get married.

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

Someone said don't praise marriage on the third day, praise it on the third year. And then you met him after three years, brother how you did a I don't know what I did in my life.

00:07:52--> 00:08:08

I don't know what I did in my life. Like last time, you might say, I don't know, it took me so long with your mom telling me it's just amazing. I mentioned this in my dogs. When we get married, the sooner we come back to marriage again, right? And I have no problems in my marriage. I'm just say that.

00:08:09--> 00:08:45

I'm a happy married man. And I'm very happy married man. My wife May Allah bless her she is I've said it to her. She's a much better person than I am. She contends with with, with my travels with my dealing with social cases, with my public appearance. And I, I need to remind myself of the favors, and May Allah give her all the rewards of whatever little things I do. Because I believe without them, we you know, we cannot they say, Behind every successful woman, there's a woman who will increase your success get married to another woman. So I'm not saying that.

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

No, no, no, I'm not saying that.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

So far the law was I say,

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

coming back to marriage.

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

And what will we say the man is?

00:09:04--> 00:09:14

Anyway, whatever it is, but another point that I can mention you're on marriage, while I am saying on marriage. They say that when your partner makes a mistake, don't rub it in, rub it out.

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

When your partner makes a mistake, don't rub it in don't drive that thing. Try and erase it try and evade it. That's the way we move forward. So the point that we were saying here is that Allah subhanho data, yes, this is the point that I wanted to say is that every relation is two sided. two sided, one is more than the other, but every relation is interdependent. A partner a wife is in need of her spouse or husband is in need of his wife, a child to the parent, the parent to the child, employee to the employee, and today if you meet a man, you say brother Mashallah so and so is working for you. Now, it's not working for me, man. I'm just carrying him and doing him a favor.

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

That's you know what is is a liability we're just taking care of him my Muslim brothers have given him a job. Oh my gosh I mean I love

00:10:07--> 00:10:30

that you meet the employee you say I believe you working for him what working for him I'm running the whole floor. I'm operating the old thing that men can only fly because I'm there without me is at zero. You know what I do the buyer and I do the imports, I operate the whole floor and manage the whole thing. Somehow the law according to that man is getting your your liability according to you. You're running the whole floor. So Heaven knows what is the truth.

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

But when the relation comes between us and Allah, we need a lot totally and he doesn't need us at all.

00:10:40--> 00:11:18

In everything else, I need you you need me one can play hardball. God one can play tough. Sometimes your dependence is greater this way sometimes it is the other way. So a couple gets married. How's life handled very good after three, four years How you doing? Ma drum and will only make to Allah bless us with a child and really charm and make out you know, we really, we we desire as we optimistic and we pray that whoever doesn't have kids, may Allah bless them with children, those that have children, may Allah make their children obedient. You know, it's, I say this often, and I'll say it here, that when we don't have a bounty, then our weakness is we assume that bounty was

00:11:18--> 00:11:31

all its privileges minus in all its challenges. Right. So you say that I'm old now. You know, I don't have kids. If I had kids, I wouldn't have been working. No, no, my brother as those that have kids, they work in times to.

00:11:34--> 00:12:09

Somebody said in today's demographics, if you want to do a workshop on parenting, it might be in your interest to invite the grandparents before the biological parents, because the grandparents have become the nannies and babysitters. Because often those marriages is broken up. And neither of them both are working, neither of them taking care of the kids, the grandparents cannot see my blood cannot see my flesh cannot see my children. So these say doesn't mean if you have children, you you wouldn't have been working many who have children, but they haven't to clear the children's liabilities. My son ran up a barrier. My son got involved in drugs and you know what he incurred so

00:12:09--> 00:12:44

much cause he crushed this old Empire, he brought it down to the ground. So this is our weakness, right? A person says I don't have a car. It's so difficult if I had a car would have been cruising at some exotic location, then a car you could have an accident. You had a car, you could be at the workshop. You had a car that could be another hiccup and a glitch. So when we don't have a bounty, we assume ownership with all its plus, and all its perks excluded all its minuses that is so naive and foolish of us that as if life is like this. Yeah, it's not that a youngster who's getting married he thinks marriage is only in the bedroom.

00:12:46--> 00:13:25

There's a kitchen, there's a bathroom, there's a lounge, there's a yard, his neighbors he there's more to manage my brother, there is much much more to Mary this much more deeper than what meets the eye is not only one room and one fantasy this deeper to that here, but for now it centers around only one thing. So anyway, Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need us at all. Every other relation back and forward, come and go align is maybe we need them completely, permanently, totally. Allah doesn't need it. Constantly in the Quran is not a message. It's a theme of the Quran. Allah chose his ability, and it shows that at any time he can strike at any time. In fact, it follows up here as

00:13:25--> 00:14:11

well not just you know, time. So we're gonna just run through it a cursory glance over it and move on. I mean, to Memphis summer, AFC fabrico autoboca era more, do you have no fear that if you continue committing Cofer and sending he in the heavens will cause the earth to swallow you up after which it would quake in US suddenly here the earth, the moon would would rock it would quake. And I'm sure you followed the news. It was about a month ago, I literally had a Shivas set in and I'm grateful to Allah that I was reading Hades at that time. And there was a severe earthquake. It measured 5.3 on the Richter scale in Johannesburg, the epicenter was in a place called Orkney, or

00:14:11--> 00:14:49

there's so much happening in the world. So if it doesn't local, sometimes you're not up to speed with it. But just about a month ago, a quake and hit and I was sitting in my dining room and I was reading and I actually started screaming, my cupboard shelf with my books started rocking. And I had a little unimin and I could hear the clutter. And it carried on and the movement was so extended, that initially you think now what's this am I assuming? Am I imagining? But this I consciously realized due to the intensity of it. I called my wife she came she felt and he continued.

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

Generally it's so quick that by the time you realize it's over, no, this was the longest in my life. I know once I was in California, it was at the time of

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

Further I got off this road. And I found this and I said, I don't remember it because you're sleeping, you don't know. And then in the morning I asked the brothers and it was covered in local media that yes, it was established, there was a tremor and the rest of this was big in the news and it was extended. I tweeted it immediately and then it hit social media we made draw and you know, it was on the radio stations, and it went far up to Durban and other places. And souhan la I literally seen the sting joltin it's actually rocking. And I'm saying this is when you realize how you are in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, to me, it doesn't hit me that none of us be exposed

00:15:37--> 00:16:21

to it. May Allah test us in that you think you're safe you think you'll cover you think you insulated you think you're 45 for either he had the more eloquent discourse the earth to quake and before tiama one of the signs of the armor is that there will be succession of quakes one after the other. Nonprofits Eliasson said when these natural disasters will start kick in. Can you bomb in a cinco? Look at the words of Hamas arson is like a twine in which they are beads. When it breaks how one bead follows after the other, the planet will be locked plague gripped by catastrophe tragedy, one after the other May Allah protect and save us all and make it easy. But this was reason Don't

00:16:21--> 00:17:02

you realize that if a loved ones then he could cause the earth to swallow. And there's a hadith in Bukhari is a hadith in Bukhari, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a man was walking, clad in beautiful dress. He was feeling proud and arrogant about himself. And he was walking with this arrogance. And then Allah just ordered the earth to split and swallow him with his pride and his beauty and his arrogance he went and then obviously the Quran speaks about the great incident of Peru. The Quran speaks about the great incident of corrode that he went up and he was walking and people looked at him in his pomp and glory, wow, look at his car. While Look at his convenience.

00:17:02--> 00:17:41

Look at this, well look at his empire. And I just to draw the parable closer to home, you seen someone driving up and overtakes you and in blows you away with that go. And if you go around the block and ahead by the venue, realize that you know what the Guard has kept sighs and the man is lying there, and he's all dead bodies. And then that very green envy that you had for him is now reduced to sympathy and empathy. You were blowing away and you wanted to put it on social media and water car water speed water driver, and you just got close up a minute or two ahead and you realize who the guy went through a tragedy. He couldn't negotiate the bag and the car capsized and you know

00:17:41--> 00:18:27

what? It's all bodies live in. It's all over. Now you sit and ask yourself, where's where's the sun? Where's the NVR this year? The Quran says Tarun was walking levena Yuri donelle dunya la de la la Odia Wow, I wish I wish I wish I had wealth like this. These are the words your data with Lana mithila oto qarun in oligo have been are the this is what you call lucky. This is the words of the Parag verily he's a lucky man upon libido to learn those who have divine knowledge they said no, no, no, no, no, no, that's been hasty. That's been very you rushing the situation. We're in a cold war we do. Reflect on the reward of a lot for herself and Abby, he will be done to heal all the losses

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

he was walking we just told the earth giveaway oops, everything just went in

00:18:32--> 00:19:01

there whatever. The Quran says those that were envious of him yesterday, they started dreading that outcome. Us baja Latina men no maganda who will be MC Hippo Luna awake. I was reading this a few years ago the breakup of this word weaker and in the Arabic language, there's so much written about it, if it is a combined or it's a single or what is original etc. will be to them. When can Allah No no, I've realized that Allah

00:19:03--> 00:19:48

gives sustenance to whomsoever He wishes and alike and reduce it from whomsoever He wishes. abundance of sustenance and provisions is not necessarily symbolic to a good fortune. Yeah, we see before our eyes What had to happen then Allah says, I mean don't manifest sama aorus in our house Lieber Versa Allah moon okay Finally, or do you have no fear that he in the heavens meaning he whose command is in the heaven, Memphis summer so far Oh, manifest Salah a abroad, because we do not restrict a lot to a location. Allah is not confined by a location. So when Allah says in the heavens meaning whose control is in the heavens, because Allah has mentioned what what led up sama in the

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

law, allows rulership allows authority or less power is in the heavens and less power is on the earth of American aina Macondo. Allah is with you wherever you are, so Allah cannot be contained by us.

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

space or location. So he was in the heavens, meaning he was authorities in the heavens and on the earth at every location.

00:20:08--> 00:20:45

Or do you have no fear that he who is in the heavens meaning his command his mind, he should send a devastating windstorm. hasl event Hassan Hassan in Arabic refers to stones and pebbles. So these gusty winds, these gusty winds, last year was in the Caribbean. And it was just before I move on, or in blah, blah, blah. And then there was, you know what, there was news of a potential Cyclone that was going to pass through the Caribbean. And it was just to shut down. And everything as I said, like the Shakti system, that's how it is, when there is fear, or this news or this potential and it's going to cross through and if this speed, everything just comes to a halt. And this is it, how

00:20:45--> 00:21:28

nature can just stop everything. You are getting you fighting you particular you meticulous, you'll open your shop, you want to generate your revenue, you want to maximize it. But you're a tragedy hasn't struck this fear that it might strike any paralyzes us. All flights have been grounded, why there's fog in the air, there's this in the atmosphere, there's chaos on the roads. One thing of Alaska, he just unleashes a lot leashes only one in a quantity. And that's everything regardless of how advanced our technology is, it just comes to a shutdown and comes to a halt. And it is natural. Nobody can challenge anyone. These are the abilities of the Almighty, He reigns supreme. And all

00:21:28--> 00:22:11

this is there for us to show our our servitude, our obedience to Him and to drop our head in gratitude and respect. He is his absolute authority. Today, unfortunately, mankind has interfered in the systems of nature. Mankind has tried to put his fingers in places where he knows this has to happen with divine world its divine feminine and divine command. And we don't want to digress into all these things. But we we as a whole mankind as a whole has not respected the system and the law of Mother Nature. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what do they not fear that he was command is in the heavens should set a devastating windstorm against you. Soon if you are destined to suffer

00:22:11--> 00:22:28

punishment in this world, you shall come to know how true my warnings are. However, if you are not destined to suffer punishment in this world for your conferences, you shall certainly see it in the UK. So I mean, do you feel safe for me no matter a lot, and I just did it. It's safe from the punishment of

00:22:31--> 00:23:09

a believer never feel safe and secure and never feels I can be complacent. I'm taken at every moment you take a person in today's world, and because of all the illness and diseases May Allah give us good health and happy and keep us in good spirit, what they say, every x amount of time, check your blood, check your cholesterol, check your sugar, to this check. If it's a woman, you got to do this check. You got to do this extra checks, make sure all these things are taken care of every two years, every three years, every six months, every one year, you're going to be monitoring your health all the time, because there's so many things that could come out. Now what about a believer

00:23:09--> 00:23:54

he constantly fears that the almighty can strike him at any time? Do you feel safe, then it is only it is only the losers that feel safe, believe and never feel safe, he feels constantly and again, that was of the master sallallahu wasallam Allahumma in Nana odo becoming the one in Almaty what the Holy half you think Allah don't divert the privileges you've given us Allah don't take it away from us, in fact are often say that today's world is so good in Doom, that some are victims of situations, right? sickness, poverty, challenges, mud, draw whatever it is, you know, so certain people have certain challenges because of which they go through depression. And then the other half

00:23:54--> 00:24:27

of the world are gripped by depression because they fear being victims of those situations. So what happened is, Hey, you know what, this one got sick that one got sick, like drama, and I just hope I don't get sick. So they sick and depressed because of the condition and you all have the fear that you don't get diagnosed and isn't a prognosis on you. You got depression in our context in in Africa because of crime and everything. So if one house got hit by night, they obviously bad the next house got hit. Then the third night The house is not Hispanic in the most

00:24:29--> 00:24:56

is like you know what is like he had his chance anyone else chance I just hope they're not targeting me. So this is what the world has become. Either you're a victim, or those fears are lurking. those fears are lurking, that when it's going to hit home to me, and you don't know what's going to happen for Santa Monica. Soon you will come to know you will come to know my punishment and my chastisement.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

What article double la Vina mean properly, him

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

Getting again and again verily those before them before the present day disbelievers they rejected the message of the MBR so how devastating was my punishment when it arrived? Allah is asking how devastating was it? Look Look, the Quran invites you repeatedly travel the world with the eye of reflection and go to the ruins of the previous nations. In fact the Koran the Quran reproaches the mannequins that you travel and you go to Syria and you pass by the ruins of those nations that preceded you were in a lotta more road rla him must be hain our be late morning and evening you pass by Wayne behind me Sabine butene it's on the main highway you have to pass it with previous nations

00:25:48--> 00:25:54

with destroy Why don't you just stop for a moment and think people live get wealthier occupied what happened what happened to you

00:25:55--> 00:26:00

reflect introspect. Apply your mind hello to someone who may not have noticed

00:26:02--> 00:26:47

you you're about a ruler when he's in power, great plans, and he's going to be this dynamic man. And he's going to add flavor to the earth. And he's got this charisma nevermind after his death after his after his term is over is gone. You never hear of him. It's over whether the man is still living. It was the ex president it was the former president. days are numbered in his release really dial mood. Remember, the Quran says to his swimming. Been ahead of Tesla omega. Those that chanted the slogans of power Might and Glory. After we destroyed them. Can you even hear them whisper there's a verse of the Quran. Zambians are so happy Can you hear us but know what the ballerina

00:26:47--> 00:27:10

mean? Probably him thoroughly those before them. They rejected the message of the Almighty so how devastating my punishment was when he arrived. The kuffaar should learn a lesson from the destruction of the past nations and men their ways a certain Edelman worry lovely lady here an intelligent man is one who looks around and he learns there's too much happening. There's one thing you need to remember brothers and sisters.

00:27:11--> 00:27:51

I say this and I've even read this quotation of some wise people in fact some Sahaba that allows clemency and allows grace doesn't allow for any person to be apprehended or exposed on the first perpetration when you do a wrong ally is very kind in the sense of wooden exposure immediately like gives you a chance and you know you are buying time and time is running out you persist in on your crime and you know it's it's it's running out it's going to get out the stench is going to get loud people are gonna realize, but you can add on and on and on. And finally, when you fail to heat it, then it comes to exposure and it comes to a breaking and a boiling point that you said no, I promise

00:27:51--> 00:28:27

you it's the first time that you know for a fact it's never the first time the system of Allah grace and kindness is he gives repeated chances he gives repeated chances you die suddenly in the sense that at that particular time perhaps you are normal hale and healthy made up in a tragic accident and you die but the bird up towards that they were 1000 examples there were 1000 reminders there were hundreds of people you buried. There was so many people around you that that you know were young and healthy and had greater plans and broader horizons and they moved on and they gave you loud loud messages to say that you know this is this is the reality of life but unfortunately you

00:28:27--> 00:28:32

didn't heed it now looking again at the glory of a lot of 11 year old boy

The only being who deserves and is entitled to invite to his praises is Allah. Allah tells you praise me and Allah is entitled to go there. Why Allah mustard you may really yummy Raisa subotica Maria, what is Allah an embodiment of every noble attribute at its optimum level? And a last pose and excellencies are what we say personal they will not confer to Allah. Any other persons any ability doesn't warrant he sprays directly, but it's a rather a reflection, expression and manifestation of Allah's favor on him. It's a last favor on him. So he's a handsome boy is a beautiful woman. It's not like their parents got a different formula.

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

It's the kindness of Allah subhanho wa Taala he's an intelligent man, but he's not like his mother you know in during pregnancy, she ate watermelon or she ate something else and they come and give you all these concoctions Yeah, you know you must eat this and tried it and avoidance and whatever then a brain. Heaven Knows Heaven knows. Allah bless you are an intelligent child. Allah bless you with this year. It's your wealth again. It's the bounty of Allah Locanda below

00:30:00--> 00:30:23

bsdl Dunleavy bozena Ludhiana. canola, Fabian Mr. Peroni. It was sheer intellect that generated revenue that every intelligent man would have had an empire like qarun. In fact, the Arabic poet said the proof of the deen and destiny is there are many uneducated people who are so wealthy that they employ the services of the professionals.

00:30:26--> 00:30:42

What may not Deline? Alan taba he will help me he books will be what the ye shall be. The proof that sustenance is ordained by the Divine Decree is you see this man who's unintelligent, he doesn't have much.

00:30:44--> 00:30:54

So they say the answer went to the neurologist and he went to do a brain assessment. So he said, You see, the human brain is made up of two is the right and the left, you got nothing left in the right and nothing right in the left.

00:30:56--> 00:31:20

There's nothing left and your right side and there's nothing right on your left. Anyway. It's all the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's nothing of our personal doings. And if we have any quality in us, it's an Allah given. bounty. Look at this right one, one of the most difficult situations that today the medical world is dealing with is is is Alzheimer's

00:31:21--> 00:31:24

is dementia. You read about it constantly.

00:31:26--> 00:31:45

People short term loss of memory, they might have long recollection of memories, but they lose in memory loss. I have known of a couple May Allah grant them Jenna, the husband had passed away, the wife had deep diagnosis of enzymes, she had lost the memory so much that she didn't realize her husband passed away.

00:31:48--> 00:32:27

It was difficult, you know, with all the things till she lived for a few years after that, and she didn't realize that I'm missing a man in my life. Obviously, they were only an agent, Mashallah the kids were taking good care, but someone I knew well and personal. And they didn't know. And subsequently, she passed away at the time that Allah had ordained for her. Now, it's a very, very challenging situation and medically what they would tell you that if it is found in your genes, it's headed to three, you are predisposed to it, you are more susceptible to it. But the challenging part is there's no measures you can Institute to reduce the risk of contracting the condition. So in

00:32:27--> 00:32:46

diabetes, if it's hereditary, I'm no medical person. These are things we read, and we write, so please, there might be people that are medical, and they might be more skilled and competent. So but whatever things we have, I've set on some medical panels to give Islamic perspective. So I've set with doctors on radio stations, and you know, this little guy here, these things here.

00:32:47--> 00:33:23

But not that we understand all these things. They're these terminologies. I got like this little irritation on my back here. I get it quite often. So I went to the doctor. He says, Sure. This is called tinea versicolor. I'm like, no Doc, my language brother. What is this all about you? So it's a simple irritation, but as a medical term that they use, right. So, the point that we we are saying is that at any time at any time, Allah subhanho wa Taala can strike Allah subhanho wa Taala can strike our powers that we have, Allah can take it. So this condition, if you are in a situation where it is a habit,

00:33:24--> 00:34:09

then you are stronger chance, but there's very little you can do to reduce that factor. Now, can you imagine you're living in the fear of contracting it, yet there isn't any measures that could be taken away. So Allah speaks about his ability, that when I say you know, we become proud of what we have, Allah says that man, we've given you knowledge, we've given you power. And after that, as you age, we reduce you to childhood. And when you forget the basics, never mind your professional, your professional. We make you forget the basics. I know of a person who had lost of memory, and a sense of direction. The challenge of this person was he lost the concept of male and female.

00:34:10--> 00:34:15

So he would confuse genders, we would address a girl by a boy a boy by a girl lava.

00:34:16--> 00:34:47

May Allah make it easy for everyone. The Quran says that don't be proud of what you have whatever we have a look and see that anytime as we talk in a lock and take this away. Allah says woman who I knew who those whom were given give extended life to what might you do ala or Dalai Lama? We return him to the worse age. And that is we repeat childhood with him and what happens? Michaela Alibaba dari Minish, a basic Arabic grammar licky la dama say

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

mean, so that he knows nothing after knowing a lot. We make him oblivious of the basics after having studied the extras.

00:35:00--> 00:35:44

So in his time he was the Dean of the Faculty. In his time he headed the entire unit. He was one of the top surgeons. But what happened Parkinson hit home as it was hit home a medical condition hit home. I've heard of a person who was a lifesaver, and he's saved hundreds of lives but tragically had to succumb to to drowning himself because he had a cramp in his stomach while he was under the water. a cramp just a simple stomach abdominal cramp went into spasm. Now, as much as you know what you have to do, but your body is not with you to do it. How can man have pride? How can man have arrogance? Allah subhanho wa Taala himself deserves that is why one person whenever people used to

00:35:44--> 00:35:52

praise him, so he is to enjoy. So someone said you very conceited, he said, I'm not enjoying it because they're not praising me they praise in Allah.

00:35:53--> 00:36:19

I don't deserve this is not my praise, nothing is my own each one of us. Whatever abilities Allah has given us, it is Allah given bounties and every single day in front of our eyes, people have been given and taken, people have been blessed and people have been deprived every day it's happening. You don't have to look at remote isolated for incidents in around your neighborhood, you will see now let's reflect over the powers of Allah, our Let me elaborate.

00:36:21--> 00:37:03

In what you have to build my own Zico, one man in Abu Dhabi coalition embassy, have they not seen the power of Allah in the birds about them spreading their wings out and folding them. without falling down, it is only a rough man who keeps them suspended in the air. Verily, He is watchful over everything and has complete control over everything. Now we look at the flocks of birds flock of birds, we look at how high they fly and how smooth they glide. And how beautiful a nest they made, that it looks so flimsy that it's going to collapse at any time. But storms have come in when the trees have fallen and the nest is intact in the gutter of that roof. So

00:37:05--> 00:37:22

my children showed me a documentary and I said, Wow, I'm slipping up which bird This is that the male puts the twigs together both the nest and then attracts a female, she comes, she first has a look at the house. I said my word

00:37:24--> 00:38:08

is this even in the birds, she has a look at the nest. Now you look at the human intellect of studying these animals and understanding why. And that is the thing we supposed to add value to our lives and not drop our abilities. They say that research is proving that animals have a greater level of emotions then perceived by by by by humankind. So they have you know, taken images of animals that have died. And and captured it. And I've showed it to other animals that lived in the neighborhood and showed it and they have tried to study the emotions or expressions of those animals when they were shown their dead animals so that the expressions indicate that they cannot

00:38:08--> 00:38:15

communicate and converse. But there is some degree of of lamenting of regret of communication.

00:38:17--> 00:39:04

Last year, just before my mom was invited to to Kenya, Nairobi. So we had some good programs at Kampala, and then we flew to the Masai Mara to go see the the great immigration of the wild bees, National Geographics. People have read about it and everything. But this was a live migration to see where they come across from the Serengeti. And and it's phenomenal, right? It's, you know, I had some good friends that came with me and we did a balloon. We had an aerial view of it. And it was so amazing. It was one of my best Safari tours, and it was, I don't want to tantalize you, we need to speak of what you speak in here. So they come in the 1000s. And they cross over. But there was a

00:39:04--> 00:39:48

particular place. And obviously we seen the the cats in the lions and the leopards and the cheetahs, and there was this zebra baby zebra that was obviously hunted down by a lion. And then it had its bite. And the vouchers were now you know having their butt. And the mothers Deborah stood close up there. And she obviously we cannot read or relate. But she stood there and watch in isolation from all the others apparatus as the vultures were eating as if she cried and lamented in pain. And I promise you it was so sad and emotional that every one of us they were actually what you know wet eyes as much as we will see and nobody can oppose because this is nature at its best. This is the

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

law of the wild, right? This is the system of the Almighty, that you you're not feeding a life to a predator. But the predator is doing what it does by its instinct and it involves the the

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

Zebra Trumps it okay we didn't see the hunt itself, but it was dropped down it had his bite and we seen the balances come in. And in a matter of time the voters had cleaned it up and the zebra stood there. And just just just today in like, like a man would be in the waiting room have doctor's surgery in anticipation and anxiety. And bit by bit this this this animals in so Allah has blessed these, these animals with great instincts and abilities. So the bird builds the nest, the female comes in, she has it looks at it. And if she's happy, good luck, they whatever, you know, get together and have mating and it continues. And if she's unhappy in his wage and disappointment, he

00:40:40--> 00:40:42

dismantles the whole nest.

00:40:44--> 00:40:50

He does mental the entire next week by three because she hasn't given it the green light.

00:40:52--> 00:41:37

So we've been invited to look at the animals and learn from it. There's so much we can learn. Unless it's different. This bird that kind of flies look at our glides, look at our flaps its wings, right? The law of gravity, why doesn't it apply the gravitational pull of the earth that if you try and gravity is going to draw you down? What happens for Elijah to soften in a normal because anything would wait he's going to be attracted by the law of gravity to the ground. But what allows this bird what allows this bird right and your modern aircraft and everything it is again mimicking the style and the the sloop and the manner of the bird? How do these birds fly and how they cross continents

00:41:37--> 00:41:46

and how they go in the search of their sustenance? I will amuro Won't they spend a moment in a pile and look at these birds. And another verse

00:41:49--> 00:42:38

in p w is summer suspended in midair, my own Zico in Lola, my own sick own man in the 14 Jews non keeps them in air but Allah, Allah says none keeps them in here but Ramadan, even in that the scholars explained in great detail. There Elia is making the reference to the birds in the air, but a lot follows it by his great name Allah. Allah follows the by the name of man, why did he Why does he come with the attribute of man even that the scholars don't leave out that this is an expression of His mercy, his kindness. And as we as humans as mortals, variety, color, it adds flavor to us. You know, you're sitting in your patio, you see the sun rising, you see the ripples of the water,

00:42:38--> 00:42:48

you see the birds chirping all this just adds flavor. All this just creates a tranquil atmosphere. You want to your early morning birds chirping you don't hear dogs barking.

00:42:49--> 00:43:01

Right. And dogs barking is the creation of a love birds chirping. It is so therapeutic. It is so therapeutic. It is so relaxing. It adds flavor to our life going into Botanical Garden

00:43:04--> 00:43:06

fill out of the book don't even

00:43:07--> 00:43:56

look at the variety and the color combination we've created go and see Go go go and see a bunny and see the birds and the colors and the beads and that's Oh my word. Oh my word. I was once in the Maldives. Right? And we spent some few days there and Subhan Allah I'm not into snorkeling and all these things but when you there you know do whatever he is what has to happen. So we we stayed there and it is if you're looking for a destination as a honeymoon, take this down. Right? You've no regrets my word. breathtaking. Absolutely. So the house is on the stove. And the water is absolutely transparent. And then you have these reef sharks and that and they come in with your feet and it is

00:43:56--> 00:44:13

crystal clear. And you see the sunset in nature at its best. And then all the verses just cloud your mind looking at the sun the water the birds the variety and you say my lord if this is what the best part of it is the island in which we stayed was called paradise.

00:44:15--> 00:44:20

Paradise Island so I said Imagine if I go your what you're going to tell the world we better chef and Jenna

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

my elegant agenda in Israel form in sha Allah May Allah grant us the name Israel form.

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

So the point i'm saying is look at this at this the beauty Islam doesn't say shun and forsake. But Islam says look with the deeper I Miam secona illa Rama in Nauvoo because Alicia embassy Allah is watching everything.

00:44:44--> 00:44:45

The Overton

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


00:44:49--> 00:44:59

in il cafe Runa, in Laffy warroad besides Rama, who can be your army to assist you against calamities and problems, who else who else

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

A father says a son has elegance is who pays your bills? Who puts gas in your car? Who takes care of your mobile phone? Who pays your fees? And you say your friend Fred. Okay, well, let me pull the plug in and see what your friend does only see what your friend does. When when you're out in the cold, then you realize only your family and only your parents do for you. Leave the claim of your father, he does X amount leave the claim of your mother, she does X amount, you're created as everything for you. A man has a lady besides Allah, Who could there possibly be an army? Who could you mobilize young Sudoku who could aid you besides a lot. And if you say it's your isms, if you say

00:45:36--> 00:46:01

it's your objects, if you say it's your allies, that initial curfew and a Luffy rule, they are in utter loss, if they believe that they dieties or gods can assist them. That's a deception. That's a delusion. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only one that can aid and assist. And besides Allah, nobody else can assess. And we see it happening. And this is another message of the Quran. I'm trying to just condense it.

00:46:02--> 00:46:40

When we are in a crisis, then we call out to the creator very desperately. But no sooner does a lot rectify or deform. Assist is a change in our tone, there's a change in our attitude, there's a change in our body language, the man is a different person. So prior to the operation, you go and meet him, he's in the intensive care the preparing him up, you know, this gentleman was going for an operation. So he's very stressed up and all that. So the doctor said he wants it. He says, you know, it's the first time I'm going to have surgery done on me. So the surgeon said, Don't worry, my friend. It's the first time I'm operating also.

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

My word as the last thing I need to know before an operation, I need a man with 30 years of experience and no failures I don't want to know is the first time you're operating. That just adds to my stress. So you meet the man just before he's going in. And what's the nature? He is like?

00:47:02--> 00:47:42

You know, I told them, my past is in my Creator. You can do X amount I rely on the Almighty and I'm reading this prayer and I'm asking a lot You must pray for me really, really, you know, Mashallah impressive. All, all all acknowledgement to him that he's got his focus on the Almighty, the operation was successful is recovering. Progress is happening steadily the next day you read him? You know what, I've got to compliment the surgeon that this man is amazing. This guy is brilliant. This clinic is awesome. But your tone was very, very different yesterday because yesterday it was very precarious. It was very uncertain. You didn't know how was this going to turn. So your whole

00:47:42--> 00:48:05

reliance was exclusive on the almighty now that you've crushed the danger bog, you've crossed the danger zone. So now you start your attitude and your arrogance. And the Quran has spoken about that 1000 times in your calculon in the road, you are in a deception you are in a delusion if you believe anybody else can aid you and assist you. It is only Allah subhanho wa Taala that can assist you.

00:48:08--> 00:48:41

The Yasuko come in and soccer is not valid do or don't wait for Allah Akbar, who can give you a sustenance if he who sustains you Allah stops providing for you. No one else look Yeah, there's two ways. Sometimes a lion can stop providing for you. Or sometimes he can provide an abundance for you. But your medical condition doesn't allow you to indulge in that food. There are people who own empires, but the dog of that house eats better than the owner of that house.

00:48:42--> 00:49:04

That man no no no no no I cannot eat doctors haven't allowed me at all. And that dog is having the best of meat and the best of food and the owner of that house in English they say there's one of the best you know areas you know for health sayings that I really like. They say eat your food, like medicine, otherwise you'll have to eat your medication like food.

00:49:06--> 00:49:44

Each and today Today Today well who eats food like medication? Read all this you know healing and eating and my my dad May Allah reward him he always sits us down and read those and he does and avoid this and you know try this and and you know you try I mean me personally I'll tell you there's one thing I read about microwaves and since then I don't have it. And I'm still grappling with my kids. Right? You can read it up all these waves and artificial and what it does, but but there's so many things today today everything is so superficial. Everything is on the one meal on wheels right? In the Meals on Wheels is by it's taken off from Frozen, heated and packaged and baking and you eat

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

it and you realize you are what you eat you are what you eat and read all these gadgets and things that we're doing and these waves and the food and what it doesn't. That there's nothing like you saying it's organic and everything but what is organic, what is organic, you send you lactose and you you intolerant towards milk

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

It's not lactose intolerant, but it is the kind of injections we give in to to the cattle and the cows and that is why it's breeding all these other type of things and then afterwards you discover that you thought you were eating beef and you weren't eating beef when you eat in horsemeat. Right? And that is like no the big debate Oh my word where does this thing go? Where does this thing go? Eat your food like medication or else you love to eat your medication like food, and that's what it is. People have this baby is no give him a nice gift. What's it give him a nice medication container.

00:50:32--> 00:51:07

Because the man has morning, afternoon, evening before after early morning, three 2am PM, whatever it is this whole thing and put it together and and you know, if you take one of these small grandchildren, the only thing they got to do is for the grandparents is good nets and pop tablets. You know, give data one tablet give Danny one tablet that's a pop medication that's a good one a drink. But pop another one that that that's what it boils down to. Anyway. So one is a login with all the sustenance and the other thing is a login give you all the sustenance but you have this either way, you have been stripped away either way, I'm going to either let the zopo go in and

00:51:07--> 00:51:11

soccer is stopped, who can give you sustenance, if he who sustains you,

00:51:12--> 00:51:57

if he will sustain that there is a last stops providing for you no one else. However, despite acknowledging that only Allah sustains them, they the kuffaar adamantly continue that rebellion and enmity for the truth of the field. But let do let God lead to fear too we want to food they know their feebleness yet they attitude they know their arrogance, they know that Allah can seize and grip yet they continue this this is this is really tragic. If a particular student wants to study in a university and his colleague due to persistent evil behavior, multiple demerits and then was subjected to expulsion. Now after seeing the expulsion of your colleague you know you need to study

00:51:57--> 00:52:31

they even any other university that's going to take you and you've just seen the fate of a colleague that was arrogant and you still persist on that attitude, then you know what, that's the result recipe of disaster that's the recipe of disaster. What more can you say for that person? You seen how the creation of provoking the Wrath of Allah you seen the anger and the rage of a lot and you and I still contribute to the Roth and the anger of a lot by perpetrating and continue now evil May Allah guide us open our hearts a lot further Lumina. Obama unlock that which has blocked our hearts from the growth

00:52:33--> 00:52:37

of ammonium GMO give banana which he may have

00:52:40--> 00:53:07

studied, is the one who walks upside down on his face more rightly guided more likely to reach his destination or he walks upright on the straight path. Right That is the translation. This is the brief commentary in a nice manner the believer who walks the straight path of Islam, without swaying to neither extreme nor is more likely to attain salvation in the author attend the copier who has no direction in life.

00:53:08--> 00:53:46

So what is the question that Allah subhanaw taala is asking me Am she the one who is walking McKibben upside down a person who is walking on his head? Number one, can you imagine this year, and then the scholars have also explained walking on a on an uneven terrain on an uneven terrain. So one is a flat surface, right, a person driving on a flat, open road on the motorway, he could be driving at a particular speed and another person covering the same amount of miles. But it's a windy road. Obviously, the one on straight flat terrain can do it much faster, because it's easy. On the other hand, for that person, it's windy, this decline is incline you cannot attain that, and that is both

00:53:46--> 00:54:25

moving in car. So the point I'm saying that the terrain has a big difference in terms of the mileage that you cover. So there is this rough terrain, there is this uneven terrain and a man walking upside down, versus a person walking on a flat surface and walking correctly. Who would reach the destination first. And who would ever reach Nevermind. First, it is clear, it's abundantly clear. In the very same way. I believe that the path of Islam is free from extremes provided he treads the path objectively and correctly. And the manner in which he loves his life that is the correct life. In fact, one scholar gave a beautiful analogy. Sometimes you Russian so you dash out of the masjid

00:54:26--> 00:54:35

and you just put your shoes on. And in Russian, you know you you sometimes when you rush you end up slower than average.

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

Because that rush creates so much problems. So you rush in and everything and you put you slip your your left shoe on to your right foot and your right shoe onto your left foot and you cannot stop and I cannot change it, I believe. But what happens is you take 10 steps and you say Listen, if I'm not going to stop and change my shoes, I'm going to fall and I won't do anything. And that's what the scholar said. He said if you're

00:55:00--> 00:55:06

shoe is wrong, you can't walk physically in your life. If your whole life is wrong how are you going to progress with your Creator?

00:55:07--> 00:55:43

If your whole life is a one shoe is wrong you cannot inch forward and when leap you cannot inch Never mind lead. If your whole life is wrong if it's upside down, your priorities are upside down. You take the average youngster today, in the night when the whole world sleeps, he's awake and when the whole world is awake, he's sleeping. That's that that's that's the typical thing. Right? He gets this withdrawal symptoms and he's suicidal suicidal, it's like a joke. Everything is suicidal, anything you tell another day I wish I was like a threat You know? And you know

00:55:45--> 00:55:57

when I gather you everybody speaks to kind of thing about this this beautiful proverb in Urdu they say of the Top Gun Baraka get a camera dying moderncv chin

00:56:00--> 00:56:20

up pataka barangay Kamara dying get murdered cabbie chin Appiah. tokita dying not in a fit of rage and depression a I just wish I die. But then after you died, if nothing gained, right then where you're going to go? Where are you going to go from day one, you can change your grave. I'm not happy with room service.

00:56:21--> 00:56:23

What happens then my brother

00:56:24--> 00:56:28

after my machine, okay, Bonilla, he

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

may have been chased away

00:56:31--> 00:57:10

off the team. So alive that you lead in an incorrect way we'll have to catch up with you. There's no two ways about it. Every said it's got to beat it. And it's period is how long Allah allows you and gives you grace and Allah tala gives you clemency. But that sin and that wicked and that evil has to haunt you bite you and come back to eat you. That is the system you cannot continue life. So that the path of Tokyo the path of obedience is the correct path. And it's the straight path. And that is the path and in one direction it comes. The explanation to this ayah is that the terminal the center, the transgressive will walk upside down and the day of the oma.

00:57:11--> 00:57:25

So the Sahaba said only Viva La How will a person walk reversed upside down on his head on the day of the AMA. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and this was his beautiful teachings, this was his beautiful teachings.

00:57:26--> 00:57:34

He said the one who has allowed them to walk on the feet, feet, doesn't he possess the ability to make them walk on the heads?

00:57:35--> 00:57:54

Then we have a lot you know, he's analogies was just too profound. When when he spoke about that the sickness is not contagious. So instead want to be over love. But this camel came into contact with that camel, and that's how it became sick. So nice, awesome set. And then the first camel came into contact with him.

00:57:58--> 00:58:09

And then the novelist Allison said, Do you know when you share the bed with your spouse, and you have relation, you will be rewarded. And this hopper said to her do not shut

00:58:11--> 00:58:24

up. I'm just giving you the nature of his answers. Profound, profound, ought to be available. I am sharing the bed with my spouse, I'm indulging in my fantasy. How can I be rewarded for you?

00:58:25--> 00:58:37

And then Have you ever said but is it not that if you indulge in your fantasy with a strange woman, you'll be punished? So we said yes. So then isn't it correct that when you do it right, you must be rewarded.

00:58:39--> 00:59:19

That this is how he reasoned only over luck. I mean, I'm happy that I'll be rewarded. But why would I be rewarded? I mean, I would just think that I won't be punished, I got married and I'm satisfying my need and I'm sharing that that's it, you will be rewarded of charity, but only to have a low why unsatisfied, but all my companions? Is it not? Is it not that when you satisfy the same need in the incorrect place, you would be punished? Yes, it is. So by the same logic, when you would satisfy it in the correct way by the parameters of Islam according to the boundaries, you will be rewarded and continuously like this, you would find that to be of a lot. So they come out it's a bright moonlit

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

night. And everybody is just looking at the beautiful moon and enjoyed it. And they said in acoem saturon

00:59:28--> 00:59:29

to the moon and

00:59:30--> 00:59:44

as you marvel at the beauty of the moon from your respective location without crowding anyone you would be privileged with the countenance of your Creator on the day of the AMA engender without crowding or rushing over anyone.

00:59:48--> 01:00:00

There is this beautiful Gita and now it's translated in English as well or Rasulullah sallallahu Vitale, translated by South African scholar is authored by Sheikh Abdul Fattah Buddha. You

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

You must lay your hands on it. It is the prophets of Allah, they will sell them as a tutor and his teaching methodology. It's an amazing book. It's an amazing book, The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, as a tutor, as a teacher, as a guide, and he's teaching methodology, both for a guardian, a teacher, a parent, anyone who is in any position of guardianship, it gives you great insight into the approach and the methodology of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. It was so amazing. He mentioned that had a it's an

01:00:34--> 01:01:06

indicator that just came to mind. So I'll just touch on it and move on. I had to give a talk once too, not too long ago to the teachers of one school, you know, that gathered all the stuff and then asked me to give a talk. So I shared some extracts of that book in that particular discourse of minds. So anyway, a particular Sahabi he comes into the masjid, the prayer has commenced, and in the passion to secure the Raka he seemed that the Imam had bowed down into ruku. So he said, if I'm going to run up to the self, I would lose the rocker.

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

By the time I get there, and then I joined the prayer, it would be too late. So what he did was, he joined at the door, and he started walking in prayer.

01:01:19--> 01:01:35

So there was a bit of a shuffle in the background you could make out there's a bit of movement and everything and he's coming. Now look at the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. You know, one is, are you started from the dog? You must have started Oh, man comment. You can make sense down the road.

01:01:36--> 01:01:40

You know, and and what you do you demoralize the person completely.

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

But there were two things that had to happen here. This man's spirit needed to be appreciated and acknowledged, and the correct principle needed to be guy impressed upon him. The master sallallahu wasallam said, I salute your spirit. May Allah reward you and increase you in your passion, but the action is wrong.

01:02:04--> 01:02:09

My word that goes a long way. Hello, son, your passion.

01:02:10--> 01:02:13

I love it. It's amazing.

01:02:15--> 01:02:16

When are we gonna break?

01:02:18--> 01:02:20

So hello. Okay.

01:02:21--> 01:02:28

So let me just end this here. And then we can maybe have a break and then do the question and answer. So I thought we were running right through. I didn't realize this yet.

01:02:29--> 01:02:34

Anyway, so the point is, the Hadith says that they will stand up on the day of the army

01:02:35--> 01:03:14

on their heads. So the Sahaba said, How is that possible? Nobody says some said the very bean who made them walk on their feet will make them work on their heads. That's it. Again, embracing the powers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah has abilities. If our mind once everything through the logic and our understanding and our limited understanding, then such a person will have great difficulty when it comes to believe and belief not only in Islam, in believing in any religion belief will call you to a point that you've got to surrender to a greater being higher than your mind and your intellect every because that's the teachings of every Nabhi. That is the teachings of

01:03:14--> 01:03:40

every individual. A person went through some tragedy. And then he went to counseling and counsel of the council after counsel asked him what happened. In the end, he said, they told me in a very flowery language, that you know what the statute is that come, you have to surrender to realize that this is outside your control facility, that that's the beginning that we will say to a person from the word go, that's what it is. So you went for five sessions, and they charge you an arm and a leg and what they told you in the end is what we tell you in the beginning.

01:03:42--> 01:03:54

That that's it what is destiny? What is stopping what is fate? Fate, it is to believe that Allah is above and he's in control above the situation, and he has the power to control it and Shaku mozarella

01:03:57--> 01:04:35

I say it is Allah who created you and gave you ears, eyes and hearts, and every other faculty for which you cannot ever repay him, how can you ever repay him and I mean, it's simple, like, if you don't pay your water bill, the cup your service, if you don't pay your food, your phone bill, they terminate your service, and I don't pay the bill of my eyes. Now I abuse it but Allah continues to give me vision and Allah continues to give me the ability to see and if I imagine if a lie to say every time you abuse your sight, it will every it would gradually weaken. Every time you abuse your Uri, it would gradually weaken. Every time you abuse your tongue gradually you will become dumb. We

01:04:35--> 01:04:36

would have been blind, deaf and dumb today.

01:04:38--> 01:04:59

We would have been blind, deaf and dumb, we would have lost all our faculties. The beauty is Allah gives it to you whether you pay the bill or you don't pay the boat. And remember the consequences are grave and after karela matta shuru. This is exactly besides failing to express verbal gratitude. Many people even failed to use the favors of Allah in a manner that pleases Him. Connie

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

Very few of you are grateful or you express gratitude very little. And like some scholars say until now via demand and Adam, that your little bit means virtually nothing, virtually nothing.

01:05:13--> 01:05:30

How must we be grateful? You know, sometimes we say I don't know how to thank Allah. And it's just an easy way out because we don't want to think. You know, sometimes they say you want to invite or you want to introduce a prominent person. You say he's well known. It's a short way because we don't want to introduce him. I'm not saying that.

01:05:32--> 01:06:17

I'm an ordinary man, my brother and I have nothing. I'm saying sometimes we ducked behind where it is, right? We take shelter behind things. I don't know how to think a lot of women alive so I just don't know how to correct my brother. You can never take a lot of good lead, but he tells you how you must thank you. Here man. Whoo. Whoo, the show crawl. Walk on Illumina everybody ushiku out the family of the wood and via them by extension everyone display your gratitude walk the dog exhibit the claim manifest the claim don't just say display that I love you I love you show it in fact I say to my kids often when they come in they you know around you and dad you the best fathers leave that

01:06:17--> 01:06:18

for later how much money you want.

01:06:21--> 01:06:35

Why because you're an ATM, right? You're an ATM they just you know that and as they grow up the demands get more The challenges are more and each one is but I only ask you this and I only need this and others and that and Subhana Allah today the challenge with you that such

01:06:36--> 01:06:55

that everything they do you need to thank them pat them appreciate them acknowledge them does not allow my son you perform your further salami Allah, I'm so happy. It's almost like he's done you a favor. But hang on. You're a grown up Muslim. You feel a lot you need to know that. Yeah, but I prayed my preacher

01:06:56--> 01:07:28

but why on me why on me? Why are you saying that to me? I'm happy you did it. But I need you to understand you're an individual, independent, sane, mature, intellectual human, you have created two things I have created two phase you should be doing this driven by your own sound logic, reasoning and understanding of Islam. The prophets are simple, but it doesn't work with the kids of today. It doesn't work that was very kind of you everyday up and whatever you have done for them. It's a duty it's a duty of you that

01:07:29--> 01:07:49

they will do it What else? So May Allah guide May Allah protect Allah make it easy. These are the challenges we live in through and, and you know, we have to contend with it. I just have a thought in my mind, and I'll just say quickly cover the amount of God right when the social boycott was imposed on him

01:07:50--> 01:07:59

because he had not participated in the booth. Just Just Just think of the richness of that society. And the province doesn't sit right keep away from God.

01:08:00--> 01:08:07

And he told the woman for keep away three Sahaba Hillel been oh my god been medic, three of them.

01:08:09--> 01:08:10

Social boycott

01:08:11--> 01:08:48

nobody to meet with them capital the Ilana said the Medina in which I walked became strange to me became foreign to me, because the whole society was away from me. This version of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam as a disciplinary measure was being exploited by other elements at that time. The King of Hassan he wrote him a letter a cow I'm sorry to know that your prophet has ditched you is launched you is forsaken you hang on you don't need this in your life Come with us. We'll give you all respect amnesty and we'll take good care of you.

01:08:51--> 01:09:03

Imagine you having a blow with your partner and you walk out there and a woman gives you a broad smile and say you know you have such charming character. Oh, whoa, you cannot resist it even when things are good at home.

01:09:04--> 01:09:10

And your things are bad at home and you're somebody who's warm and gentle and passive and loving and caring for you what happens to you

01:09:11--> 01:09:40

is that it will have to be the provinces in knows that my companion is being invited by other insane okay in the boycott and going home quickly calling Okay. Okay. Can we happy with you? Government happy with you come back. No, no, there was a discipline that was taking place. And carb knew that minor visa version was only for my benefit. He took the paper and he toyed and he burnt it there and then he said I'm better off with the angry Navy than unhappy enemy.

01:09:43--> 01:09:50

And better off what the angry Navy, my brother You are better off with your legal lawful spouse

01:09:51--> 01:09:59

that might have an issue with you but you're going back home, then having an illicit strange woman who's given you all those promises and love them.

01:10:00--> 01:10:37

Comfort and whatever else my boy you're better off with an angry parent that might expel you from the house then taking shelter in some suppose that friend who's promising you the world only to ditch you. But today you cannot do anything he goes out he might pick up an accomplice and do something wrong. Okay, okay sorry my son, I'm wrong you come home because if he goes he will do something he doesn't have the brains and you lose in any do worse and I'll cry more. The public doesn't know if God is outside temptations are coming around him but his plan is on track mela Atlanta's understanding, time is up they just wrap up this idea we completely So who are the people

01:10:37--> 01:11:14

who are linnaean shall come say it is Allah who created you and give you ears, eyes and heart and every other faculty for which you cannot repay him. However little is the gratitude that you showed besides failing to express verbal gratitude. Many people even fail to use the famous of a lie in a manner that pleases Him and the scholar says it now he said the minimum gratitude is that you don't use these bounties in his disobedience. I mean, I said this and I said it to my kids. I said back in the days children were born with straight teeth, and they spoke straight words. Today they born with crooked teeth. I don't know how expensive orthodontics are. Yeah, but I know I have to do it. I'm

01:11:14--> 01:11:23

busy with the third orthodontic in my house here. And I'm like spending this money to straighten your teeth only for you to spurt. venomoth

01:11:24--> 01:12:05

Yala. I'm straightening my son Steve. And I mean best in him only for him to throw out those nasty words that my dad did nothing for me. What is it done for me and it cost you an arm and a leg and straightening test and that if only we will because it's a cosmetic world it's a cosmetic world. If only we were concerned about this straight speech as much as we concerned about straight teeth. I think society would have been a different place all together. But today let the speech be at is May as long as the deed You know what? The jaw the by everything is good. It looks nice. And in terms of the speech nothing back in the days. It was that the speech was straight. But today we've lost it

01:12:05--> 01:12:08

may Allah guide us May Allah grant us understanding hula hula de

01:12:10--> 01:12:50

la talk Sharon. It is Allahu spread you out on earth. And it is here and it is to him that you shall be gathered up the depth that Allah spread you out. Look at the creation of Allah and say that I am and how I came on this earth, our ancestor, father and mother, right? And Omni billion people have populated come and gone and will continue to come. Allah has spread you out. Allah will assemble your day of Yama. I'm just concluding it up because the time has basically left. While olona Mehta has a lot to do including detail. Lay the kuffaar say when will the promise of the AMA take place if you are truthful? So they mock you. They scoff at you talking about the AMA. So when you did come

01:12:50--> 01:13:02

in, let us see. Let's see when it's happening. In other words, it will not happen. I dare you. There was so provocative in their words, they don't say that. I know. We tired of your empty warnings. You want to tell your lawyer to strike now.

01:13:04--> 01:13:08

Right? Some say verbally or the same with their body language part. Oh, yeah, no.

01:13:12--> 01:13:52

No, we tired of all your empty threats and all that. Yeah. And they stole moodily salatu salam in Apolo ilaria Tanaka back earlier hi Tina we sue you the only man who's coming with strange claims looks like you have normal and we normal and I think the problem is with you and not us and that is because you were posed our isms they have inflicted that harm on you. It was the kind of nasty things they said to the province call in the mail every morning the law or in number and enter the wrong movie and say to them oh Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam this knowledge about when tiamo will take place lies exclusively only and suddenly what alone is only a clear warning warning you about

01:13:52--> 01:14:35

its arrival so that you prepare for you one thing we need to understand you need in Arabic means wanna but wanna not just merely conveyed the Arabic grammar of the word Naveed includes in its discussion, a passionate Warner, so I know he doesn't just disseminate a message or doesn't just discharge a duty. Listen, I told you the coroner you want to go you go you don't want to tough law. No, that's not an OB passionate love care concern. Calling out crying, screaming, yelling, begging, imploring. That's the highest level of passion and conviction and concern motivated by that and then warning the people from our own fancy. Do hola de la cafaro watery La La Quinta,

01:14:36--> 01:15:00

when they will see the punishment of after approach in closing, approaching close the faces of the kuffaar will contort disfigure with fear and it would be sad. This is what you used to ask for. Now you asked us but when it's going to come, I say to the kids a simple analogy. You know, you see the children when the dog is tired and it's got a leash around and the children are Ronnie and

01:15:00--> 01:15:04

They are teasing the dog and the throwing stones at the dog but let the dog be loose

01:15:05--> 01:15:41

then you want to change path and you want to you know I don't like this road I like that other road nothing to do with the road because now that's a dog that is out so as long as it's tied up use provoking it, you teasing it, you you doing all your things, you call it on the adopt, because the other is not coming but let it come. The Quran says amongst the baseless requests the disbelievers had made they said you know what, we won't believe in Allah we don't see the angels want to see the angels so unless you tell them why not density to dictate and demand who they want to see and by the way tell them the day they see the angels angels come with a god they don't come with celebrations

01:15:41--> 01:15:53

we have in the party angels are coming down we have in a carnival it's a recreation please bring up balloons come early. We've been serving biryani no Yo man oh man I gotta

01:15:54--> 01:16:34

tell them the day they see the angels they will want to see them they won't want to see them angels or something they're gonna come with other companies are like happy and excitement and all join us and all that what elegance for you to ask and when the day you see it you won't want to see Phantom Mao when they see it soon in fact and so in fact means closer see Latina cafaro then the faces will turn pale and they would lose color because they will realize it's coming their way that fear is hitting how we see it in home what a la has a levy con Tommy hated the road This is what you were calling for your kind for a year it lies in your lab dealing with it now. But alas it's too late to

01:16:34--> 01:16:37

come in and Laconia loved one and Maria oh

01:16:38--> 01:17:19

my god Catherine, I mean, are there been any? Let me give you a translation of this independent of what's written here just say unto them our ATM Have you given thought Have you applied your mind? Have you realized if and like any Allah allow us to give me death allow us to cause my death, woman marry and my companions, which you hoping for because they prayed always that you will die that will be here it will be known. This man's faith will end shortly he will die and that Islam will be over so it will die. And that would be there and it won't go beyond the the boundaries and the and the peninsula of Arabia. So okay, hypothetically, you are right, and I die and my companions, but how

01:17:19--> 01:17:38

does that help you? You're still going to die and you you're going to have to contend with it yourself. In other words, the Quran is saying to them, you are hoping praying and anticipating the death of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as if you're praying is going to be answered number one, number two, even hypothetically, if he passed away, how does that rescue you?

01:17:39--> 01:17:45

It's like a person drowning, and someone else is drowning and drowning. You you're drowning? And what do you what would you

01:17:47--> 01:18:23

if you're standing at the shore and you're laughing? It's a separate thing. I don't say do that. But I can still understand the logic. But you're drowning yourself and you deeper the need. And you say yeah, you gasping for breath? You think you got what you said in and saying to the believers that what is going to happen to you what's going to happen? What about yourself? What about yourself? Oh Rahim Allah Allah, Allah has mercy on us. And a lot forgives us and Allah grants us paradise, which is the reality but you don't believe this is this is a dialogue of the Quran. say unto them that we're in a Lala a no fee. Movie. Mohamed says um, you know, you want the truth, but they're not

01:18:23--> 01:18:59

going to accept it. So say to them, one of us are following the correct one of us are following the wrong thing called kilometers based on photography. Are you waiting to see what is correct? I'm waiting to see Tiamat will dictate who was correct and who was incorrect. I'm telling you, it's myself and I'm inviting you but you're not accepted it now that time prove who what is the correct thing for me? Oh, God will carefully and answer this question. Oh, disbelievers. Whatever happens to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. It's a separate thing. Who's going to rescue you attend with your own situation, deal with your situation? And I think it is a there's a deep message here. Do you wish

01:18:59--> 01:19:24

for this, you pray for this, you hope for this all those are in its places. But that doesn't absolve you of your duty to get up and pray for protect. Which I hope it does happen. Whether that happens or this happens. You are still duty bound by the commandments of Allah subhana wa Tada. You have to do that you can pray for the best hope for the best wish for the best. But your duties are your duties and the conditions that I that is in the control of Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:19:25--> 01:19:45

man who behaved while he was gonna say unto them, it is a man upon whom we have brought faith and it is upon Him we rely our reliance is on Allah subhanho wa Taala we never display mercy in we never display in the hope of Allah. Allah subhana wa Taala we never give up hope in the mercy of Allah.

01:19:46--> 01:19:57

Allah we rely on Allah. Allah moon This is in many places of the Quran. When Murphy voila a movie you will realize Louise in manifest error for setup Allah Muna man

01:19:58--> 01:19:59

so he woman he

01:20:00--> 01:20:07

You will see who was guided who was on the correct path and who was not for some Fatah isn't careful boo boo

01:20:09--> 01:20:44

boo Arabic forward says now the dust is flying high so everybody is moving we don't know if you mounted on a horse on a donkey is no no I got a stellium I was like this oh really good at and he's moving away that way this dust settle the sun rose and he's on a donkey. He claims something and what it is but because it was dusty The atmosphere was covered the view was obscured. So in this world everybody can claim everybody's got a tongue and you can claim but the time will come. You will realize men who have Ebola the movie in who is in a manifest error.

01:20:46--> 01:21:28

In US Bahama Okubo la familia de Lima in Marin, is the CO farcical adamantly refuse to accept Allah as the only Illa then say to them, tell me if your water sings to the depth of the earth beyond your reach? Which one of your Gods can provide you with pure water? When they Gods cannot even provide them with water? How will they possibly save them from Allah punishment? So these are 30 verses a lot concluded and let us all say for me, it can be by a magazine, the answer comes we must say Allah say Allah brothers. So this is the nature of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Wherever questions are asked in the Quran, he used to reply, Allah would say, for example, at a salon with the African meal

01:21:28--> 01:21:35

hockey mean, is that not not the best done? Then you will find, but most certainly allow you are. And he said that he can be

01:21:36--> 01:22:13

a father, you said who pays your bills? Who takes care of this? Who does this year? He's expecting an answer, Dad, it's you. And what is it? Who else? Of course, it's me, I hope you realize that you need to know it properly. So Allah says these questions that we need to reply modestly alike is only a like is only you, if allow it to cause the water to go deep down in the ground and deny you access and deny you rain from the clouds? Where would you reach out to water which is the main cause of survival for men? And if you seen that the series is written again, may Allah save us from arrogance. arrogance is it is cancer times three. It's It's It's It's not benign to the medical

01:22:13--> 01:22:30

term. It's malignant. It spreads, it kills you. So when this verse was read before one proud person, he said Bill 41 in Malawi is mentioned in gentlemen, is that what technology we will access water regardless of how deep it is into the ground? But

01:22:32--> 01:22:37

if I'm here, Allah dried up the water of his eyes socket and he became blind at the same time.

01:22:39--> 01:23:04

So Allah asked the question, if I have to seize the water and deny your access to nanotechnology, I've got my contact. I've got my pool I can mobilize we know how to operate we long in the game it's coming down for generations. Okay. Oh, almost like a little angel of that. Just wait I'm busy. Like Wait I'm busy man. You don't walk in you nobody barges in here? No, no, no a almost with that attitude like you're gonna stop the angel of death.

01:23:05--> 01:23:09

In Habib Amina Bobby Martin, so

No, no, no, he comes if you bought a flight keyboards, if you get a visa, he gets a visa if you don't, he's not that is the reality. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to connect with the Quran. And I sincerely asked a lot that I will get together you today may have profound spiritual effects on myself. Firstly, on the brothers and the sisters, May May the fruits

01:24:21--> 01:24:48

of this program continue as a legacy for the institution and the organizers and made people continue to learn and grow and benefit from this particular discourse and inshallah it propels us to greater heights in connection with the Quran. Allah grant us all the understanding forgive us for our shortcomings and make us amongst the people of the Quran. The Quran will testify in our favor and not against us. Or suddenly Lomo salamander Nabina Muhammad he went on early he was happy he married
