They realize that this world is like a deep ocean. So they did not immerse themselves into this, but rather they created vessels through which they can sail in this deep ocean. What were the vessels through which they would come here commute the obedience of Allah subhanahu wa taala Nabarro fee in half an hour family more and Elaine sadly Hi, Ian Wattana Jha Lu, Lu jetten. What the hadoo Solihull family fee has to fauna, say the Nandakumar and his salaam told his son Oh my son. I have seen this world to be

00:02:43--> 00:03:08

so deep and the waters to be so rough that I've seen many vessels sink and many sailors drown for any startup fragile Safina Tikka taco Allah, if you can help it the only way to survive in these turbulent waters is that you make the obedience of Allah your vessel law

00:03:09--> 00:04:07

Her they've been Yamamura the Allahu Anhu said Yeah, Deanna Nancy's Amar known a time will come la Yun ju ahart el mejor de roca dua il hurry, none will be rescued from the turbulence of that time. But the one who supplicates Allah like a drowning person, as a parent raising children in the century, it would take a lot of prayer from you. I constantly say when you with your children, speak to them about the law. When your children are not with you. Speak to Allah about your children.

00:04:10--> 00:04:46

When you with your children speak to them about Allah, Islam impresses upon us. But she yet only Kelly men Hershey or Abba, you're shown by whom were your half una su al hisab, the lingos the grammarian the philologist the authority on Arabic will tell us the distinction between mushy yet and Hove is mushy it is fear, motivated by love.

00:04:47--> 00:04:57

impress upon your child, to fear Allah out of the love for Allah. And this is fundamental

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

In a world where atheism is presented in such an appealing way

00:05:10--> 00:05:19

I know of a person who was an atheist and then he took the Shahada. So I asked him, What attracted you to Islam?

00:05:20--> 00:05:39

He said, The most dark. And the most depressing moment in my life as an atheist was, whenever I had a moment of happiness, bliss, euphoria and excitement, I had no body to praise and think.

00:05:43--> 00:05:59

And that was the most depressing moment in my life. So when I would enjoy something, and I would rally something, and I would cherish something, there was nobody to acknowledge because according to me, I was the architect of my life.

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

We don't appreciate that.

00:06:05--> 00:06:18

When you are enjoying a meal, when you are enjoying Any, any, any bounty of Allah subhanho wa Taala how the body just naturally calls out to the Supreme Being.

00:06:20--> 00:07:17

Lie and Joe are hired Illa Ruka duha in hurry, none will be rescued from the turbulence of that time, but the one who calls out to Allah like a drowning person. If a person is drowning, you don't casually wave your hand. Listen if there's any Lifesaver and you're not too busy and you have some time, I think you know what, I need some help you yelling you screaming at optimum to the greatest possible level at your you frantic? You desperate for a Fabien Yamame Radi Allahu Anhu said A time will come none will be rescued from the fitness of that time in llama yet Ruka dua in hurried, but the one who cries to Allah subhanho wa Taala so desperately in Fatah al Bari, I read the Ashara and

00:07:17--> 00:07:57

the RBR of Imran tase was a great Arabic poet and ignatia You know, Rahim Allah Allah says, on the strength of Hull have been hauled ship that we used to often read these are br and these stanzas and this poetry at the time of fitna and harbor Owen romantico.

Allah hairbow Luminita Khufu Teja. Some have readied for Teja. And some have read it differently as well. It's mentioned the infant URL bar exactly. I read it there, that at the time of fitna, we used to read these Achaar and beyond poems and stanzas of Imran taze that fitna is like battle when he just starts it sounds striking, appealing, stimulating, intriguing, riveting a what's it discover, explore expound adventure, new something apply

00:08:34--> 00:08:42

an herb oh no Manta Kuhn for Teja. young, attractive, seductive, appealing, had to either stop.

00:08:43--> 00:08:59

But as the fitna intensifies, and it gets strong, and it drags you in and it pulls you in. Then suddenly that whole charm charisma attraction seduction, appealing phase just withers away Champa

00:09:00--> 00:09:19

becomes old aged frail, weak. mcru had suddenly show me what to believe. In the initial phase it presents like a beautiful young girl and towards the tail end. It is nothing but misery and you want to wash your hands away from it. The other might have written

00:09:20--> 00:09:49

that the different fitness that will grip the OMA we all talk about fitna and we know that we live in a time where it is so rife and rampant, common and prevalent. There are different stages phases of fitness that will give people on different levels. The first fitness that would hit the OMA fitness Roger leafy Neff See he be a yep so Academy boho fella. Yeah, Johanna with the party left

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

the first fitna that would happen towards the end of time, which we find ourselves in. Yesterday I was caught into some of the

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

Scholars, there's the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the period of Hajaj.

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

Of course, there was so much murder that was taking place.

00:10:13--> 00:10:57

So people close complained to Anasazi nomadic or the Allahu Anhu. Shut down the Hadith in Bukhari secona Illa Allah subhana Malik Mannella terminal had judge that we complain to answer the Allahu Anhu of the tyranny that was been meted out at the hands of head judge. So you said it's Bureau when sorry, who obeyed was summoned by head judge. Then had dad said to him, If turmoil in Africa yatta yatta yatta. Say, decide how you want I must execute you. Certainly the Jubeir said no baluster until enough sick for wala himanta Petula knee patella in La Plata. Nicola who Mithila Hatfield ACARA

00:10:58--> 00:11:05

I'm not going to decide how you must execute me. You decide how you want Allah must punish you

00:11:10--> 00:11:19

I'm not going to decide how you must execute me. You decide how you want hola my Spanish it's a long dialogue.

00:11:20--> 00:11:21

He asked him

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

Are you hola a Benny Omega jaboulet

00:11:28--> 00:12:06

From all the rulers in Romania, which one impresses you the most? So you said our bar homely highly to him? The one who pleases Allah the most fear around tried to provoke and steal his ministers around NT Musa alayhis salam so he said Paul and pharma Babylonian poor ruining hola garland from Peroni Lulu So Moses What's your opinion of the nations that preceded us? God Mohammed in the lead the the knowledge of that is by Allah Allah you're below Allah who doesn't forget or make a mistake

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

so hot dogs then us our individual bed

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

Matakohe Luffy Yeah.

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

What's your opinion about me?

00:12:23--> 00:12:27

He said, Allah move enough sake, you know yourself better.

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

He said, Well, only door l maca. And

00:12:31--> 00:12:35

I want to know your opinion specifically precisely about me.

00:12:38--> 00:12:53

We live in a world where people are so desperate for recognition. You know, the man's praise in your favor is not genuine. It's fake. It's superficial. And yet you feel thrilled by the superficial praise.

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

You know, this man is not honestly respecting you

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

is just to cover himself. He says few kind words he flatters you. And he you know, confers those praises and extols that about you. And yet you feel great about that. It massages your ego. But you know in his heart he doesn't believe that. That's the desperation people have failed.

00:13:22--> 00:13:50

When for us duck was walking the famous incident Zainul RBD Rahim Allah and within was his entourage and his cavalcade and all his you know, Soleimani Abdul Malik, the Hisham bin Abdul Malik the king was moving and all his people were with him. And of course on the other side was Angel RBD and what a presence of people what an ocean of people so he sham felt threatened that look at the people around him.

00:13:52--> 00:13:59

So he said Who's this person? Who's this? I don't know him. So for us that was the poet he said.

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

In controllata RFO fun hallelujah for who will Hara Moo ha the levy are different but ha what are the who will be to your ID for who will hang the well hello? Heather Ibnu Hayden anybody learn he could Lemo her the thing you nothing your thigh Rolando in contagious. Hallo be jet de Ambia Hola Hola. Hola. Timo fillet in Saco Luca manha before Erie he Olara buta Foreman and character well Jammu kilter your day here.

00:14:35--> 00:14:56

It's a very long poem and it's very amazing. Oh, his Sharm by saying you don't know him. You will not drop his honor. You trying to get to the bar to feel honored. The Kaaba feels honored with his presence, of course is the descendant of Nibiru Salatu was Salam

00:15:02--> 00:15:06

So one of the first fitness that will hit a person

00:15:07--> 00:15:13

fitness to Roger Lee Fair enough. See the Yep. So what Alberto Furlan he do hello, what

00:15:14--> 00:15:30

was the Mona John La ilaha illAllah. A person will go through the rituals of worship, but he will be devoid and deprived of spiritual happiness and ecstasy.

00:15:32--> 00:15:45

So there will be no thrill, pleasure, joy. It will just be the motions, just going through the rituals. And I'm afraid this has plagued the better amongst us leave the religious

00:15:47--> 00:16:22

Amir bin Abdullah timimi, he was a student of Abu Musa Shari, it was a great Dabiri, one of the people of Basra said I had heard a lot about him. So one day on journey I said, I want to spend some time with him. So anyway, I accompanied him when we got to the place where we halted. I observed the discipline in the life of this man. Study the Great's of all time. Discipline was a common denominator. No person, material or religious, academic or Islamic became great without discipline.

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

How many youth meet me and say just give me a quick advice. I say sleep early.

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

Sleep early, go sleep.

00:16:34--> 00:17:01

Sleep early rise early. I got this often in my dogs. Every morning a lion gets up in Africa. And it knows it must run faster than the fastest gazelle or else it will starve to death every morning and Gazelle gets up in Africa and it knows it must outrun the lion or else it will be killed. It doesn't make a difference whether you're a lion or a gazelle. When the sun rises you better be running

00:17:06--> 00:17:59

Sleep early rise early Allahu methodically on my TV beaucoup de ha sleeping latest paralyze the youth has destroyed the youth. One of the problems that were found amongst the disbelievers. Allah highlights three amongst others. One was some urine some urine literally refers to a moonlit night. Mistake be Rena be here, they were proud about it. Be he is a pronoun in basic Arabic, the pronoun needs to be preceded by the proper noun. So in the context of this idea, there is no mention. But the reference here is to the Haram because the association of the Arabs to the Haram was so accepted that without its explicit mention, it was automatically understood.

00:18:03--> 00:18:14

They were proud on the association to the bar. If you are serving in this masjid or any other masjid, don't let pride get to your head my brother

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

pride will destroy me and you

00:18:21--> 00:18:24

those who possess strength

00:18:25--> 00:18:37

and then they were proud on their strength. Allah destroyed them. Imagine if you proud on your assumed strength, you don't have strength and you think he was strong.

00:18:38--> 00:19:07

So odd was strong? By the definition of Allah. Allah said they were so strong that I didn't create people so strong lamb yoke let me throw half in Bilad but when they said man I should do Minako Allah said our lamb euro and Allah levy Hello Tom overshadow me know why you so arrogant that you think you're strong Don't you know that Allah Who created you is more strong Allahu Allah to come in both in so much

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

power so much.

00:19:11--> 00:19:43

For no Shaybah I create a new with weakness then I gave you strength then I'll give you weakness and then we'll be old age in old age nature will start claiming back all your faculties in installments. Wala who halacha Quran, Allah created you so Maya our Falcom ultimately he will give you death will mean Come February the sun from Amman zoo mejorando will be returned. The word return is suggestive of the fact that you came from that.

00:19:45--> 00:20:00

You don't use use the word you are doing if you are not there before. If you go into a country first time I'm getting married again, not me. And then this thing nowadays everybody is recorded here for my wife in South Africa. No, no my love I'm not my angel Allah

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

Have you?

00:20:03--> 00:20:10

Yeah because things are just taken out you know clubs are circulated and everything. I am given an analogy I'm given an example

00:20:13--> 00:20:39

if you're getting married the first time you don't say I'm getting married again, appreciate the Quran will mean Come May your heart dose some amongst you are return Illa towards Romare the worst age why? Modern science calls it dementia, Alzheimer's, Li que la ya la ba back that means che

00:20:41--> 00:20:50

i take you back to a point of your life so that you know nothing after having learned everything.

00:20:51--> 00:20:55

Now, in halimun 30.

00:20:56--> 00:21:12

The Scholars say it's a basic principle of the theory, the translation of the attributes of Allah remain the same. However the connotations differ according to the contacts.

00:21:14--> 00:21:30

So the translation is the translation but what is implied in the current context is analyzed in relation to the verses under discussion in Allah studied, Allah has all knowledge and all power.

00:21:31--> 00:21:41

So Allah has the power to seize the faculties of a young man despite his youth

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

mentioned in module four Quran

00:21:50--> 00:22:34

and Allah is Kadeem, he has the power that he can restore the faculties of an old man despite his old age, Tamara de now who is filosofi lien, we created you in the best form, but we can reduce you to the lowest of the low in the Latina Amanullah Angelo Solly had, but those who bring him on and do righteous deeds from us all is mentioned a inland Latina para Quran, those who devote their lives to Quran, Allah will preserve their faculties, their organs, their functionality, even in the latter part of their life. May Allah make us from amongst them.

00:22:37--> 00:22:49

So he says, we went out, it was nightfall. And yeah, it was mentioned in those three things of the kuffaar of Maccha ma stackability. Pride

00:22:50--> 00:23:20

on the association with the custodians. With the caretakers, we offer water to the pilgrims, we serve the pilgrims, and because of that pride had set into them most stuck between A B, the second Eva, some Iran, so it was customary amongst the Arabs on the bright moonlit night you said you chose in English they say the worst thing you can do is be idle. And it gets even worse when you have plenty of time to do nothing.

00:23:23--> 00:23:52

Abdullah bin Masada the Alon who said in Nila Oberliga Rajul Asare run laughing Analyt dunya wala Fie, Hamelin Asara. I despise the fact when a person is not constructive, productive, objective, meaningful and focus neither engaging in something constructive about this world know about Astra hazhar calm head dunya maker Nick a. Joe La Cocina he Carthay Kamal kurta

00:23:53--> 00:24:00

hazhar calm head down dunya maker naked jello Cocina heka Kamal kurta

00:24:01--> 00:24:10

there's 1000 things that needs to be done. The day is too short. And then people are like no, I'm chilling. What an irony What an irony

00:24:12--> 00:24:18

of the lovingness Rudra the Allahu Anhu said my Nadeem to Allah che in nignia, Allah Yeoman

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

I do not.

00:24:22--> 00:24:29

I do not regret anything as much as I regret the sunrise in

00:24:31--> 00:24:37

and then the sunset in knowing that a day in my life has gone and my good has not increased.

00:24:40--> 00:24:47

I normally say to people, if only this much can happen, that your evil doesn't increase that itself is somewhat good.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

So that was the second practice amongst the Arabs. It's a bright moon that night. They would sit they would chat they would gossip and time would just go and of course if you sit in Utah

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

And then there will be gossip in it, there will be obscene language in it, there will be backbiting in it. And that night can just go on and the amount of sin that you just accumulate.

00:25:12--> 00:25:15

How often we say things

00:25:17--> 00:25:34

in Germany are normal HECM Amerasia Bahang humbly has made mention of this call, I read it there, under the shadow of one of the hadith of nearly Salatu was Salam, that one person he slept and he fell off his conveyance. So he said that missile Mr.

00:25:35--> 00:25:46

will be into this mule. Sometimes you'd say you tend to on your phone and get network and you say the silly phone or silly network, or this foolish cow, you say, you know, these type of things.

00:25:47--> 00:26:08

Actually, I haven't thought now, in Sahih Muslim the word ACMA comes in one Hadith, I don't want to go into the details. So they're the ANOVA. They asked the question, what's the definition of what means full commonly translated? What What does full mean? Who's a fool? Somebody tell you hey, you're a fool man. What do you say go look in the mirror.

00:26:10--> 00:26:15

That's what we would tell people. Somebody tells you something nasty. You say go look in Amara and you'll see one.

00:26:17--> 00:26:37

And the Quran teaches us what's the response of a newbie? And maybe he was also told that he is a fool. Well, yeah, the biller and of course the newbie is the purest of Allah's creation. And maybe in English, they say regardless of what people tell you, you are responsible for the manner in which you reply, you can be better or better.

00:26:39--> 00:27:22

Regardless of what people tell you, you cannot say you are excused because of how he provoked it. You are responsible for the manner in which you retaught so when a newbie was told that he is a fool, what did the newbie say it's in the Quran. Yan told me ladies Habibollah young Camila is obese Alpha walang Kinney Rasul Amira, Bill. Me mean, oh my people, I'm not a full. I'm a messenger from Allah. It's very easy for me to say it now. But at the time when someone provokes you, in the heat of that moment, to restrain your tongue is the most difficult thing my brother

00:27:24--> 00:27:37

in an argument with your spouse when things get ugly and heated, and sometimes unfortunately, you lose your composure and nasty things are said how many of us can maintain our composure and our balance at that time?

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

Today, the focus before marriage is what to straighten the jaws

00:27:46--> 00:27:55

and not the teeth, not the speech. A straight jaw. What orthodontics will get you married, but a straight speech will keep you married.

00:27:57--> 00:28:00

Straight jaw won't keep you married.

00:28:01--> 00:28:04

Don't get you're married. Oh, wow. He looks stunning.

00:28:06--> 00:28:23

He looks gorgeous. He looks amazing. Great. But for that marriage to remain on track, your speech needs to be straight. One of the verses that we recite in the hotbar of Nika is what? Your Halina Armando Takala WaPo. Poland studied, oh you will believe

00:28:27--> 00:28:36

fear Allah and this is the beauty of the Quran wherever Allah impresses upon you and injunction. Allah gives you a plan of action.

00:28:37--> 00:28:45

So if you don't someone fear Allah Okay, well if you're in Allah, where do I start? Allah is telling you where to start. Learn to Speak properly.

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

Yeah, you

00:28:50--> 00:29:04

Allah or you will believe fear Allah. Okay, Allah where do I start? Start measuring your investments in othera compared to your investments in this world, Waltons are gonna have some damage delivered.

00:29:06--> 00:29:12

Or where do I start? Help the world. Okay, how do I start helping the world? You can't help everyone but everyone can help someone.

00:29:14--> 00:29:18

Okay, not as a plan of action. Exactly. Make a point make a start.

00:29:21--> 00:29:27

Those who spend today, regretting yesterday was spent tomorrow regretting today.

00:29:29--> 00:29:32

If you don't action, the plan is like oh man, sure.

00:29:33--> 00:29:40

I wish I did better with my life. Listen, if you start now, then it leads you tomorrow. You won't have to have this discussion.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

So the Arabs used to sit at night and chit chat. And Allah condemned that because and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said la Samara la Samara. Bundela Resha Wow. Don't have

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

Have these unnecessary discussions after all, it's just to get the principles of being the richness, what a structured society, what a dignified society. What an upright society, the makeup, the fabric of that makeup of a Muslim community that retire early to bed. Because this person will be productive early in the morning. And what can be achieved and accomplished in the early part of the morning cannot be accomplished at any other parts of the day. That's irrefutable. The blessings are so much in it. The early morning has a breeze, the early morning breeze has a secret to tell you be sure to rise early to eat.

00:30:41--> 00:30:50

The early morning breeze has the secret to tell you as the joggers as the walkers as those that achieve it's the early morning breeze.

00:30:52--> 00:31:28

And the third thing that they would do was to have your own had your means to blurt. And inevitably, when you're just going to have these prolonged discussions. You're going to slip you're going to you're going to add to things which would be out of line. Sometimes you make you intend saying something in jest, but it's derogatory it's insensitive, it's condescending, you hurting someone's feelings. And of course it has a nasty reaction. Anyway, we will say in the first fitna, is that a person would be deprive of sweetness in a bada my brother May Allah give me sweetness, may Allah give you sweetness

00:31:29--> 00:31:38

He can the hearty, but I don't sleep a whole night, you snow whole night, and then you say Shafi pray we must go together in Jana.

What are we to Sahana Duda want to be to who no matter what type of a button does anybody have? Like I'm up conversing, communicating learning, imparting disseminating.

00:32:55--> 00:33:05

Imam Abu Hanifa said, I had three experiences with three different women in Brighton hada Anthony in Brighton fucka Antony in Brighton Zaha destiny.

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

One woman deceived me.

00:33:10--> 00:33:46

There was something lying on the floor, some items some article, which in Arabic terminology we refer to as locked up and if it is a human, you call him lactate. And look at the beauty of the Quran for scholars that are here thought comes to my mind which I read in the tafsir that when Satan or use of a salaam was dropped in the well, what did the brothers say? That Tayto Bardo. sejati In Kuntum far in some travelers might just pick him up the adoption of the expression yelled at the kid who confirms the argument that use of was a minor.

00:33:49--> 00:34:00

Its academic Brother, if you might wonder what is this guy really saying? But it's academic? Yeah, it's academic. But the top point came in my mind was irresistible. So yeah, allow me to shave.

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

Thank you.

00:34:05--> 00:34:07

So a woman pointed to me and she said

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

you know what?

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

She just pointed to an item that was on the floor. fatawa hum to Anna.

00:34:19--> 00:34:28

So I thought she is mute. She has speech impairment. So I picked it up. When I picked it up. She said now you're responsible to return it to the owner.

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

So you said Imran hada Anthony. I was deceived.

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

Imran don't fuck cottony. One woman taught me Flicka. She asked me a ruling. And I didn't know it. So it compelled me to study again. And because of her I'm indebted to her. It made me learn more about Islamic jurisprudence. And one woman increased me in piety I was walking and she said to her the lady you sulphides

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

Are we with who in Russia? This is the man who offers his fajr prayer with the ablution of Russia. And that was not my practice. But I said to myself, if this is that good thought people have about me. Maybe it's time I adopt the practice.

00:35:19--> 00:35:28

And unfortunately, when people confer praises upon us that's not deserving. We comfortable to embrace the praise, but it doesn't stimulate action.

00:35:32--> 00:35:49

If somebody says something kind about us, we click to latch on to that place. We welcome that. Because obviously it gives us a throw, it gives us excitement, but we don't use that as a catalyst to propel us or to stimulate us.

00:35:55--> 00:35:55

Barack Obama

00:36:00--> 00:36:06

anyway, he says I was traveling to the annual bin Abdullah Tamimi. And

00:36:08--> 00:36:33

we got to this place it was nighttime. Roberta amiron frasco. I seen he tied his horse to what Allah who's the mama who he extended the leash, so that the animal could roam freely, freely. One is you exert yourself in worship, and you exploit those that are in your employment, it defeats it defeats the essence

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

bla bla

00:36:38--> 00:36:40

bla bla be Barreda

00:36:41--> 00:36:55

and he was set in with Mohammed Bin was Mohammed Bin was there was a tabby Mohammed Bin was it was a legend. It was a stalwart. He was the sage of the age, someone said little O'Meara ikura

00:36:57--> 00:37:01

Well, in Alinea ikura we're in the Mohamed Lamine pura era man.

00:37:03--> 00:37:10

You get some local recitals, some national recitals, and then you get the likes of Mohammed bin Wassail, whose recitation is for Allah.

00:37:12--> 00:37:42

harissa bin Norman. harissa bin Norman Nabi SallAllahu, some Sidhartha every time you read in Quran the melodica listening to eating in the heavens, Kedah, nickel Barracuda nickel bearer. What can a Barbara Naseby oh me Hey, tada. They call Barracuda nickel Bayer wacana Abara. Naseby on me he because he was dutiful to his mum, Allah privileged him that is the recitation on Earth was amplified in the heavens.

00:37:43--> 00:38:12

That is what you call likes and real likes and tweets and retweets, that your recitation is amplified in the heavens. That's it. Not your voice known to anyone else, in when said not so Emanuele Salatu was Satana universality Salam was swallowed by the fish. And he was deep down in the ocean in layers of darkness as the Quran says, Fernanda bone Almighty, Allah Allah

00:38:13--> 00:38:28

Subhana Allah in the Quran domain of Valley mean faster Jovana Allah one J Now I mean, what can I learn he can non GMO meaning and he called out to us in layers of darkness.

00:38:29--> 00:38:34

Ignorance of humble is Paul I read when he called out and he said, Oh, Allah helped me.

00:38:35--> 00:38:48

So Allah asked him Allah, he could do you know, Whose voice is this? Do you know who's calling me? So the angel said, so tomorrow from Maine Bella in Haryana. We know this voice, but we don't know the location.

00:38:50--> 00:39:13

So Allah said, This is My servant, Yunus. So they said, Yeah, we very familiar with the servant universalities salaam, but the place from where this voice is coming in, we're not familiar with that location. So the mullah ICA then made an appeal Oh Allah accept our intercession on behalf of your servant Yunus and grant him deliverance.

00:39:14--> 00:39:24

When you're in a crisis and you call is Your name known to your cronies, friends, or is your name recognized to the mullah? Iike

00:39:26--> 00:39:31

the Arraf Illa Allah He for Raha yah. Cafe [???] done.

Turn to Allah in prosperity, and he will respond to you in adversity. Our sunny May Allah boo yah Rachna, ASAN hair, a cell mush kill him mosquito May Allah Kuya Dragna.

00:39:50--> 00:39:52

Who can remember Allah at that time?

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

Or rather, the other way to remember a line difficulty is easy, but to remember Allah in E

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

Is

00:40:01--> 00:40:05

tarrif in Allah He for Raha fish shinda

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

Suleiman

00:40:09--> 00:40:18

beloved Nabi Breda is certain. And Mohammed denoiser is there. It's a long discussion. But in the end,

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

he asks him two questions.

00:40:23--> 00:40:47

Bill Albin, a B Barreda. asks, Mohammed bin wasI two questions. Martha Kulu Filta three. What is your opinion about destiny? Dr. D? Are the angels recording what we're doing? Or are we doing what the angels have pre recorded? In a nutshell the animasi Khadir is the LM of Allah and not the armor of Allah

00:40:49--> 00:40:58

umbrella HIQA hokum Now here I'm ready now he can Omni Allah He got the knowledge of Allah Allah knows this was going to happen

00:41:03--> 00:41:11

so Mohammed bin once replied, G Rondo come in. Babu faqeer fee him for in a fee him La Jolla

00:41:13--> 00:41:23

lesson people around you are dying preoccupy yourself with preparation for your death then trying to unpack the mysteries of Destiny

00:41:24--> 00:41:31

that's very intricate delicate you're unable to comprehend people around you are dying process that process that

00:41:33--> 00:41:38

is that okay? Okay. Okay. Oh, that really make dua for me. Another common one.

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

So we say okay, no problem I'll make dua for you.

00:41:44--> 00:41:51

And sometimes we just casually make dua, but do you know and again I have a thought it's in Russian money and it's in sort of wood

00:41:54--> 00:41:57

I have a god case tomorrow make dua May Allah give you a victory May Allah give you a victory

00:41:59--> 00:42:00

and what is the oppressor

00:42:06--> 00:42:11

just because he's your friend you made the DUA let me give you the reference academic scholars will appreciate it

00:42:14--> 00:42:23

so no other is salaam seen his son drown? And I cannot for the sake of me begin to imagine the pain on the heart of New Orleans Salaam.

00:42:24--> 00:42:28

Because he was the father and he's the newbie and it's his son.

00:42:29--> 00:42:33

I cannot imagine the intensity of that test. I simply cannot

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

recover mana Walla come fearing you're gonna You're welcome.

I know what to do. So are we in our Java? Simoni? Minalima I'll take shelter on the zenith of the mountain it will rescue me

00:43:17--> 00:43:32

the father tells the sun mountain to the ark ha Yoon does his revelation. The boy says I'll take shelter on the on the zenith of the mountain other art balloon. This is logic, logic challenging.

00:43:34--> 00:43:34

Why?

00:43:36--> 00:43:49

Well holiday in a hotel mode and then comes the wave fucka anime name of karate and imagine the father having to see his son drown in front of him La ilaha illallah

00:43:51--> 00:43:58

from uncut dama Abdullah who handle kita he was sunnah Laura toffee behold in Hawaii will be Dari.

00:44:00--> 00:44:11

If you want your logic to surpass Quran and Sunnah, then I'm afraid you will drop and drown and no Lifesaver can rescue you.

00:44:14--> 00:44:23

Every command of Allah is logical. Some are beyond my grasp of logic, but they're not in logical.

00:44:26--> 00:44:49

Did you hear what I said? My brother, every command of Allah is logical, some are beyond my threshold of logic is not illogical. If what I cannot comprehend equates being in logical, then what that flawed definition. Practically every father is illogical because his child cannot reason with his logic.

00:44:54--> 00:44:57

My son it's not illogical it's above your logic.

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

Hey Dad I want to get married How much does it cause?

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

I don't know I'm still paying

00:45:13--> 00:45:25

dad I want to get married. How much does it cost? Before marriage I was yearning for your mother after marriage the why became silent

00:45:28--> 00:45:29

man you can love little brother

Oh no he is not from your family in the Warhammer lunula Eurosonic his actions are not noble his actions are not righteous filamentous al Nima lace and that can be hidden. So do not ask me regarding something you do not know.

00:46:22--> 00:46:26

In bro Hermione Allama I Lucy Baghdadi writes under this is

00:46:27--> 00:46:55

for your good on your worry then. Fee Mustafa Hello Hello. Were you farmer Minho Hello ma Hello mill facade big dollar Jatin Oh ALLAH will be here. Oh Lima Hello, Team Masha it says Amar Nina yr de Runa be cool Lima Utila Minho, Mina mineral who Sumati Wilma? nasib halaal and Girnar. Oh, darling

Fernandez Celica be here. Don't ask me regarding something you don't know. So the iron releases a hint for your cool no nothing you worry then feel mushed up.

00:47:14--> 00:47:25

When something is vague, unclear, ambiguous, then it won't be correct for you to make dua because you could be supporting the guilty party.

00:47:27--> 00:47:52

One is you make a generic dua. May Allah make it easy for you in your marriage. But there is a crisis going on the meta has gone to court and you make dua May Allah give you victory over her or give her victory over you. But you know not who's the victim and who's the Victor for your corner now you're worried then famous double hull hull something that is unclear it's new for you because you don't know

00:47:55--> 00:48:03

and from that where you've humble Minho, we derived from that that that which is absolutely incorrect, all the more will be forbidden.

00:48:04--> 00:48:21

And sadly, we'll be here only if we learn from this hallouwe At the reality Masha is is a man in so many times people just say pray for him on May Allah make it easy May Allah grant you goodness I'm praying for you, but who he could be guilty

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

so

00:48:30--> 00:49:19

Bill Binney Breda said to Mohammed Bin was and pray for me. So Mohammed bin Monsieur Rahmatullah. Allah is said, What matters now will be do it? Well, Allah because our Kedah Colonia cool in Nikka volume the home yard, or Doha home tabulator IE, I can pray for you now. But what will my prayer do to rescue you? When they are people in your employment that are victims of your oppression? They curse will overpower my prayer in your favor. First, undo the curses that they are earning towards you because you're abusing them. And remember my brother, you could be abusing your spouse, my sister, you could be abusing your husband, you can make dua and ask people to make dua, but if those

00:49:19--> 00:49:25

around you are victims of your abuse, then they curses are blocking your DUA.

00:49:29--> 00:49:54

Cave Neruda Nagaraju a job by Tenley dua in part the sadhana tariqa with the newbie, gave another Jew a job but then lead to him. But the sad that the NA tariqa ha with the newbie, oh, foolish man, how do you expect your prayer to be answered when you've created so many blockages by yourselves?

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Then he said to him

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

A lot of Lim Wallah in Doha

00:50:06--> 00:50:13

Don't oppress any soul, and you won't have to request anyone to make dua for you.

00:50:15--> 00:50:32

Don't press any soul and you won't have to request anyone to make dua. We could be oppressing our siblings, we could be oppressing our neighbors. We could be oppressing so many people that hadith in Bukhari, right in the beginning a person said I seen

00:50:34--> 00:50:36

a Buddha the Allahu Anhu in Rabida

00:50:37--> 00:50:40

I don't know how you guys I haven't started properly

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

Are you guys chill? Are you relaxed? Are you guys good? You tell me when you diet then we call it a night if you're good I'm good.

00:50:53--> 00:51:08

lucky to have that rainbow rub the I met abuser in Ronda it's in Buhari right in the beginning or Allah He heard LeTourneau Allah Allah, Allah may Allah. So he was clad in a diet in a particular uniform, and so was his servant and slave.

00:51:09--> 00:51:31

So I said to him like now what's the CEO of Buddha, I cannot distinguish. You know what Master from serving, both declared and attired in the same dress, he said, are yours to whom we owe me, I had taunted him about his mother. And in the ASHA, There was reference to kilimani. The Ibaadat is also mentioned that

00:51:32--> 00:51:49

I slipped up and I made a statement, which had a bit of a racial slur to it so maybe you said Alana was seldom said yeah, about the rain in a camera on fee Caja Helia Yeah, about that rain in a camera on Faker Jai Helia oh about?

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

Am I getting the stench of ignorance? Am I getting the stench of ignorance.

00:51:59--> 00:52:14

And remember your helper Your servant is your brother, feed him from the food Allah gave clared him from the clothing Allah gave and don't burden him with work beyond his muscle. So since then myself and him we dress in the same clothing.

00:52:18--> 00:53:01

Anyway, coming back to what I was telling you of Hamad bin Abdullah Tamimi, and the first point I made was, they are actually 10 fitness and we just touching on the first fitna, that would happen and grip the heart is where the sense of sweetness of worship would leave us. Those that had sweetness of worship. They could just like people can Allah forbid, they can peruse porn for hours. It's an addiction. It sucks you in it draws you in. It's a vicious circle. I've dealt with so many youth that are into it. I pop the first poll they tell you, it gives you an ecstasy. It gives you a thrill. It gives you a feeling. It gives you the excitement, the adrenaline of intimacy with your

00:53:01--> 00:53:08

spouse times 100 And they after for the rest of your life. You're chasing a dragon, trying to get that same feeling.

00:53:09--> 00:53:20

There's a young man that I'd been counseling recently. He says since I've been taking the drugs I don't know what has happened. Every time I come in public, I have the urge to undress.

00:53:21--> 00:53:27

I just get this urge to undress. I cannot process it. But this is what the drug has done to me.

00:53:30--> 00:53:50

Recently, I dealt with a case where Allah forbid, Allah forbid this man took youngster took drugs, he came home, it presented before me. I lost my balance. I said I need to leave here. He says, I shudder to tell you I came home and unfortunately I was intimate with my mother.

00:53:53--> 00:54:54

The narration of telemovie had died in Karna Minh Humann Adama who Alania lecan Effiong muddiman Yes now with early Hattar in Ghana, minuman. Uma who Allah Nia, that if a person slept with his mother and perpetrated incense, the same would repeat itself. It's a vicious circle. It's layers of darkness. You need to abandon that live cold turkey, be drugs beat porn beat any addiction. Allah says oh Governor Martin fie Bahauddin look Jay Yang Yasha who Mojo Min 40 Mojo Min 40 He is sahab Willow mountain Bardo have photobomb nobody can explain it better than Allah, the layers of darkness in the life of a sinner, a transgressor. Allah said Oh girl, or light Willow mod darkness fee

00:54:54--> 00:54:58

beheaded Jagan in a deep ocean

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

Okay,

00:55:00--> 00:55:22

lomatin feedback. J ye ye shall who modem mean faulty Mojo min Fotini sahab hypothetically it's night. It's a deep ocean. He's right at the bottom. There's a wave above you. Above that wave is another wave. And above that they are clouds. It's so dark it's so dark in his life.

00:55:23--> 00:55:51

Either arthralgia Yoda who loved me or cut the Euro haha, if he was to expose his hand, he will barely see it. lamea Khedira Allah didn't say let me Allah. Allah said, let me get the euro, hands in order you can bring close to your eye and like your leg, you can move it. There's so much darkness, Allah gives a parable his life is so blocked up.

00:55:53--> 00:56:12

And why is it like that woman Mia Jalin love will love who's known for mana who made nor, Allah says if I don't give you that divine peace and light, you can traverse the planet, you won't find that brightness anywhere.

00:56:16--> 00:57:08

If I don't give you that light, people have looked for it in clubs, in pubs in alcohol, in music, in concerts, in rave clubs, indulging in whatever, nothing nothing, the soul is restless, the soul is restless. The Scholars say the analogy of the soul. And the body is like the horseman and the horse. When you hop onto a horse, then the horse examines the confidence of the rider. And the animal will realize if this rider has muscle cloud skill or not, if you don't have skill and you don't know how to hold the reins, and control and trot and gallop, this horse, then you are a dummy on the back of this horse and the animal rides you're and that's the reality.

00:57:10--> 00:57:15

You're a dummy, you're not in control. But if you know how to hold that horse

00:57:18--> 00:57:33

and you hold it with firmness and authority. Then this horse is so amazing that Allah devotes one whole chapter to it while the developer Phil moody did

00:57:34--> 00:57:37

fail moving on to soba how

00:57:38--> 00:57:42

to be he Naka thought was supposed to be he

00:57:43--> 00:58:29

in in Sun Valley Beenleigh Knut oath upon oath in basic Arabic grammar, you have the custom and you have the job that awesome. Allah swears an oath on the diligence and the devotion and the loyalty of this animal. But that's when you write in it. And hi no Mokou Don't be in our three Hello Hi, the hadith of Sahih Muslim the prophets Allah has said Allah has attached goodness to the forelocks of the horses. Allah speaks of Solomon Ali Salaam in Surah sofar is the OD the Allah you had been lashing yourself in to the GR horses are fine bread caliber were presented before him. So the condition of the human ego is like the horse. If you show authority, then you dictate to this animal

00:58:29--> 00:59:10

when to eat, and when where you will ride it. And then it would go and it will gallop and it will trot and it will show you its skill. But if you don't hold it firm, then it will flop you at any time. And that's the nature of the human ego. It will whisper to you. It will provoke you. Why didn't you just phone her? Why didn't you just try this? Why didn't you just experiment? Why don't you just adventure just for the feeling just for the excitement? So when say that Musa alayhis salam came back from Mount to and then he asked some eerie but you initiated the worship of the calf why you did I just felt like

00:59:12--> 00:59:32

what can I lick sir? Well let me enough say what can I lick as a an ethylene FC. But why did you start this relationship? What was wrong in your Magna just for a little bit of excitement? Yeah. Kind of a bit of a thrill. Wanted to feel a bit different.

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

Well, that's how expensive son is. That's what it does. Marriage is gone. Job is gone. IMANI is going sin is the most expensive thing. You walk into a shop you like something? One doctor said an amazing thing. He said we understand and appreciate things that are expensive on our pocket. You look at this but then you drop it why it's too expensive for

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

Your Pocket. He said we need to apply the same analogy with food that's harmful if I'm going to eat this. It's expensive on our health. This is tasty. But no, I cannot eat this this expensive on my health. Well, a believer understands this is expensive on my Eman.

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

Sitting and killing time and perusing porn and doing this wrong is expensive on my eemaan. And whatever drives you to that send my young boy. I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. I can swear and tell you after you've committed that offense, temporarily you got a thrill and an excitement. But after that you are 1000 times more depressed than what you were before you perpetrated it. That's a reality. That darkness. I told I tweeted the other day, I said, some side effects are inescapable, like misery for Santa.

01:01:03--> 01:01:32

Some side effects are inescapable, you simply cannot circumvent it. And one thing is sin was going to come with the package is misery. Now that depression there's no way unless you back off from the sin. But you will have to deal with those dull, lonely moments where you cannot look your spouse in her eyes because your guilt is eating you knowing what you're doing behind your wife's back in terms of infidelity, or vice versa.

01:01:34--> 01:02:03

How many marriages today are breaking up because of drug addiction? A day doesn't go in my life like literally a day doesn't. And you don't know how to look at just before I left as a young boy, six years old hasn't seen his dad had to admit him into a rehab. And he's there for months on end. Now. What do you keep on telling dad? He's gone for work? That is gone for holiday? That is gone? Yeah. How long? Understand what you doing to this innocent child?

01:02:04--> 01:02:11

Are you so selfish? That thread for that moment you ready to wreck your whole life

01:02:17--> 01:02:37

and the only way to offset it is to up your spirituality. There's peace in that. There's pleasure in it. There is a different excitement in obeying Allah subhanho wa taala. It's so fulfilling. It's so wholesome. The alumni have mentioned something so amazing. Paulo, who was this

01:02:39--> 01:03:03

pious ruler, and it was in the time of Tao that is Salatu was Salam. And he had taken his army and they were going to confront Giroud who was the tyrant king. So they crossed a river many argue geographically it's Jordanian River. Once when we were there somebody said many say this is the river reference were Allahu Allah.

01:03:06--> 01:03:08

So they came to water

01:03:09--> 01:03:11

and it was the ruler

01:03:13--> 01:03:49

and Tao that is Salam or any Nabhi at that time was given revelation and that was then communicated to dilute and he passed it on to the nation because of course pollut was not a newbie for for Salah due to bill to note, Allah in Allah Muhammad beta Nico Bina Furman firming Shari Berman who Falaise? I mean, Omen lumea Tom HuFa in many, many Talofa waterproof it can be a day.

01:03:51--> 01:04:18

So Todd said to the people listen, Allah is going to examine you we're going to cross water. They all were thirsty. And Allah doesn't want you to drink this water. However, a reasonable amount just basic in your palm that much is allowed and excused. If you drink that little but here you just scoop it with your pump that's in order. But if you drink more than that, then you're not part of me.

01:04:19--> 01:04:26

They all were thirsty, the water was there. Allah tested this life is a place of test

01:04:28--> 01:04:56

you know my brother I often say every body is searching for instant happiness. And people are depressed and frustrated. Trying to have the best of holidays going to the most exotic exotic locations wearing the most fine clothing but nobody is finding happiness in San Garber Delta Hey Gary but Delta Hey, Gary but I have to be Parashar que ratha I cook a good neighbor Delta.

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

You change your house you change your watch you

01:05:00--> 01:05:20

Change your car, but you're still depressed because you didn't change yourself. But yeah, I give you the formula of happiness. Reflect. The world tells you indulge, immerse, enjoy, party, you'll get more happy. But on the reverse, I give you an analogy which would relate to each one of us.

01:05:22--> 01:05:48

Throughout the year we indulge, we have the most lavish of meals and the most lavish of spreads. Let's be frank, honest and candid. We never feel excited, but what really excites us Ramadan? What's the answer to happiness, deprivation, starved all day? And it's the only month in 12 months that every day at the time of supper you happy?

01:05:52--> 01:05:55

Now, I'm giving you a real example.

01:05:57--> 01:06:19

Throw out the year I asked you we dine in the most fine restaurants in the most opulent restaurants. It never throws us but in Ramadan from a child to an adult for 30 days. Everybody's excited. What's the formula to happiness deprivation?

01:06:20--> 01:06:29

deprive the snuffs limited regulated controlling? The known mystery said my shabby, don't

01:06:31--> 01:06:32

muddy me democracy.

01:06:35--> 01:06:41

Whenever the belly is settee, ated it starts whispering vice.

01:06:43--> 01:07:01

Whenever the belly is settee, ated and you over eat, somebody came up the love in Amara, and he gave him Java Irish, the Irish were digestive herbs. So he said, What's this? Is it these are herbs if you're over it? He said, I've never eaten to my full where am I going to overeat? Give it to those who eat extra.

01:07:03--> 01:07:14

I've never eaten to my full leave alone over eat. But here's a perfect example. Think of it from a child to an adult. Everybody's excited. What's the answer? Stay away.

01:07:20--> 01:07:26

Look at our lives. I was giving a talk the other day. My mind is digressing your objectively.

01:07:28--> 01:07:51

There were 10 fitness, but I don't think we're going to cross the first one. But anyway, anyway, whatever it is, that happens all the time, with the aim is to, to put into action. The aim is not to complete the points to go back with a point form. And you know what I've got this year or I've studied this, or I heard this here, the aim is to stimulate action. If we stimulate in action, we win. We win in my brother.

01:07:53--> 01:07:58

I come from a generation and probably many others, mid 40s. I'm not going to give you my exact age.

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

When I got married,

01:08:02--> 01:08:19

there was no house no home. And with the grace of Allah passage, tolerance, perseverance. Allah made it possible you bought a house and made a home to every child today, gets married, where house is furnished, and they are asked to make a home and that too has become very difficult.

01:08:22--> 01:08:56

When I look at my life, and I look at the life of my parents, the disparity is definitely there. When I see the old folks and I see my beloved parents and may Allah preserve them with goodness, I just admire. I've mentioned this and I'm not here to trumpet but it is it is a rich thing of my dad and I share it. It was probably two years ago, my dad called me and my siblings and he said to us, my children, I'm sharing the secret with you people. And I said Papa, talk to us tell us and he said I'm only sharing it because I want to motivate you.

01:08:57--> 01:09:04

He said with the grace of Allah today marks 40 years in which I have not must tahajjud Salah one night

01:09:07--> 01:09:08

while I'm in the house of Allah

01:09:12--> 01:09:33

whatever my room adapalene said Magara mucho que para HYAH Cassina simparica will be made it hard Tierra Baja Cara Xiao oh man, Joe up announcer odaka Rene merriwa Did the name of

01:09:38--> 01:09:47

what they're in my room with Darlene said, our parents might have not been educated, but they gave us the best of value systems.

01:09:49--> 01:10:00

Pacino now have to say burka be made the heartbeat behind our head. He toiled and labored my mom toiled and labored so that we can have a good life and we

01:10:00--> 01:10:17

can stand tall in society. Today I can rub shoulders with the poor and the elite is because of the value system of my parents, Carrara tahu SHA HOMAG Joe up and down, sir Oh, darker man made a valid name Bucha RG Stobhill beneva here.

01:10:19--> 01:10:20

And then he went on to say,

01:10:22--> 01:10:34

he said I enjoyed the 40 years of tahajjud. But by Allah helping a poor person made me feel closer to Allah than my 40 years of tahajjud.

01:10:40--> 01:10:54

And he also shared another secret. He said, My children I've reached that 80 year mark in my life. I'm telling you, the secret to happiness is to make others happy.

01:10:55--> 01:11:05

My children, I've reached the 80 year mark in my life. The cause of depression is when you waiting for others to make you happy.

01:11:08--> 01:11:23

He didn't appreciate me. She didn't acknowledge me. He didn't compliment me. That is why I'm depressed. If you are out to make people happy. Oh my son. There are two types of people, the giver and the taker.

01:11:25--> 01:11:29

The taker eats better. The Giver sleeps better.

01:11:31--> 01:11:49

Oh my children. There are two types of people. Ya rasool Allah who's mean I'm running my shed or mouth Tamina gonna have baleen I'm in my truck, on the way of Allah take what you want and leave what you want. We celebrate what you take. We mourn in lament what you leave behind

01:11:52--> 01:11:54

the law what was assigned before that

01:11:55--> 01:11:56

robotic Koestler

01:11:57--> 01:11:58

and somebody

01:12:02--> 01:12:03

sorry.

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

Long

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

anyway.

01:12:15--> 01:12:17

No, no, prior to that, I was saying something.

01:12:20--> 01:12:20

Sorry.

01:12:22--> 01:12:27

No, no, I think it was prior to that. That kind of interjected in between there anyway.

01:12:28--> 01:12:56

So the point I was saying is that the only way to happiness for the soul is obedience to Allah. There's no other way to it. That's the chain. That's the piece. That's the Sukkot that's the tranquillity Alliance capping it in any other way. There's nothing but restlessness and anxiety. Soul is just restless, miserable, depressed, anxious, frustrated, agitated, you see it.

01:12:57--> 01:13:03

deprivation is the answer to happiness, the entire month of Ramadan.

01:13:04--> 01:13:05

You discipline the body,

01:13:07--> 01:13:09

and everyday you excited to eat.

01:13:10--> 01:13:11

And I say this as well.

01:13:14--> 01:13:16

We sometimes make a child fast.

01:13:18--> 01:13:23

And then when he wants to break the fast at the evening, then what do we say to him?

01:13:24--> 01:13:33

Just wait, now it's mothering. Now nines Maghrib. Then the child runs little bit and he comes back and he's like, Oh, your pupils Muslim is taking so long.

01:13:36--> 01:13:40

And what we say just get busy and before you realize it's Muslim.

01:13:41--> 01:13:45

And what Allah Allah is telling us now now is Janet.

01:13:46--> 01:13:54

Now now is after just behave in this world behave? Falon Mufasa Allah Tala, that's what we were talking about.

01:13:55--> 01:13:57

Take care came to the water.

01:13:58--> 01:14:01

They were told don't drink

01:14:03--> 01:14:06

for Sheree boo Minho, they drank.

01:14:08--> 01:14:39

They couldn't manage. They couldn't resist. Go see, when you try to process the drug. He took the incest he committed the abuse. He perpetrated the murders he of did the suicide. You cannot rationalize. How does the human do these things? But it's just the nature of sin from one it takes you to another to another to another. So this is it my brother. When you do good,

01:14:40--> 01:14:46

then even you don't anticipate you will end up doing so much good.

01:14:47--> 01:14:59

But it's the baby step you took and then Allah allows you to go more and more. The person who started taking the drugs that he's taking now, even he didn't assume is I'm a functional addict.

01:15:01--> 01:15:17

I take in moderation, I can function. It enhances my IQ. I was reading now the other day of Hakeem OMA, some people want to argue said no, no, you know what I have to take this benefits in it. It doesn't mean if something is haram, it cannot be beneficial.

01:15:20--> 01:15:23

Something can be haram and it's beneficial.

01:15:24--> 01:15:36

Allah himself admits in the Quran that alcohol has benefits. Gambling has benefits, but its harm is more so It's haram.

01:15:39--> 01:15:42

Allah doesn't shy away from the fact that there are benefits.

01:15:44--> 01:15:47

But the truth is, the harm is far more.

01:15:48--> 01:16:29

You look at the industry that generated or the revenue generated from the alcohol industry. And then look at the spin of side effects, road rage, abuse, accidents, Carnage, divorces, and the rest of it, the consequences and the repercussions far more surpass the revenue it generates. But like my dad says, We are a nation so addicted, that the tobacco industry can boldly print the harm of cigarettes, yet not fear a drop in sales.

01:16:31--> 01:16:36

So the gentleman walks in, so can I have a pack of cigarettes? Which one, the one that causes cancer.

01:16:39--> 01:16:57

So legally, they have to advertise that that it causes cancer. So you cover your back, but generally that's an empty advert. Nobody puts that you have to put that in fine print, but this is in bold print, but we've become so addicted, that you can see it, read it, understand it yet take it

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

so what's the answer to happiness? My brother the answer to happiness is, is deprivation.

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

Restrain your gaze and come home and be intimate with your spouse and every day would be a new bride.

01:17:18--> 01:17:30

That would be the happiness the joy the muhabba Allah will give you the peace the tranquility but if you don't restrain your gaze, I'm afraid even in the very beginning of your marriage there will be no happiness

01:17:33--> 01:17:44

the answer is like in Ramadan deprivation brought happiness applying that discipline yourself you'll enjoy it.

01:17:46--> 01:17:54

So they drank from the water and then what happened fishery boom in Tallinn and minimum

01:17:55--> 01:18:15

only few of them did not drink. Now listen to this as mentioned in the ASHA of the fit Earth money. Those who drank later in moderation. Their thirst was quenched. Those who drank excessively their thirst was aggravated.

01:18:18--> 01:18:29

I read an article of an Oxford professor who speaks about nap Venus slash happiness.

01:18:32--> 01:18:34

I read the article myself.

01:18:35--> 01:18:49

So he says if you take a nap at midday, in Arabic we refer to it as collura. In Jalla line it is written as the Rafa walked up Mahira were Ilam Yakushima who normal

01:18:50--> 01:18:54

that siesta means midday resting even if you don't sleep.

01:18:56--> 01:18:57

You don't sleep.

01:18:58--> 01:19:07

He mean be the Zabbix he is here. Our diet to cook cheese a bullet at here or not is to put cheese AR de la de da

01:19:08--> 01:19:27

your name be visible key cheese our diet to put cheese a bullet at head on now I have to cook cheese AR de la de da sleep is also strange when you get it it helps you to forget some things and when you cannot sleep then unfortunately you start thinking a lot of things

01:19:31--> 01:19:36

insomnia is a real condition that has paralyzed the world may Allah make it easy for one in all

01:19:41--> 01:20:00

for the man for Salah TyLoo to build you know the Tala in Allah mobitel Li koombana Her The point I'm driving the message I'm emphasizing the thing I'm impressing is that if you deprive yourself, you will see happiness. So this author, this professor writes that if you

01:20:00--> 01:20:22

asleep at midday. Now, give you an idea. You know, the more I read Quran I cannot tell you I've said it to me. I cannot tell you that ecstasy I get Wallahi and I'm a sinner of note. I'm the most fallible creature, but the Quran Lila I don't even have the words

01:20:23--> 01:20:46

what Allahu Akbar Allah mobile, Astra and muda ifI Kitabi wama I live in fear in me he in karate mineral Bihar Belka rush hatin mineral Patrick, I came along right somewhere there, the knowledge of Allah here, it's an insult to even we don't even know the letters of the Quran. We don't even know that we know nothing.

01:20:48--> 01:21:00

But I'll give you a context. I'm giving you a formula. I said we want to happiness words that deprive yourself, limit yourself and that's what Islam is all about. Islam is beautiful. It doesn't come to deny you your needs, it regulates it.

01:21:02--> 01:21:10

So celibacy is not part of Islam. What they say in English, marriage might have tones, but celibacy has no roses.

01:21:15--> 01:21:16

Marriage has stones in it.

01:21:17--> 01:21:23

For a happy marriage. It's not only about being 5050 It's also been thrifty, thrifty.

01:21:26--> 01:21:35

The secret to a happy marriage is not too wet, the perfect partner, but to love the imperfect partner perfectly well.

01:21:38--> 01:21:39

These things sound nice.

01:21:40--> 01:21:50

28 years married my brother. I love talking on marriage when my wife and children are not present. That's a topic I love when I'm outside the country.

01:21:51--> 01:22:00

If there's a topic I love to speak on, I can all I can change gears here for you. And we can go with this topic here on marriage.

01:22:01--> 01:22:02

But honestly,

01:22:03--> 01:22:14

a happy home is early paradise. A happy home, a faithful home is early paradise.

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

Golfers say that golf is the new cycling.

01:22:23--> 01:22:26

I'm saying a happy home is earthly paradise.

01:22:28--> 01:22:34

And discipline discipline is indulgence is misery. Discipline is bliss.

01:22:36--> 01:22:43

Limit yourself. Learn to restrain yourself this is what the whole beauty is about the deal.

01:22:45--> 01:23:30

That you could be in a place where people are doing wrong you limit yourself this is what Allah has. You know that beauty of like I've said it often because every Ramadan we flying and you you you lift the shutter, and you peeping out from the flight to see his the sun tip. And then finally you see it's just about to tip and then you raise your hands and probably on board. There's nobody else fasting. What lie here that excitement and that spirituality as you're observing the sun tipping and the tears trickling and the voice cracked and the lips parched, and you are opening that fast. I swear by Allah that feeling is priceless.

01:23:32--> 01:23:42

You can eat the whole day, and you can join me for Iftar but you can't have the excitement of Iftar unless you stay hungry the whole day.

01:23:44--> 01:23:57

You can only enjoy your wife if you restrain your gaze. You can only enjoy Halal if you stay away from haram. You can only enjoy Fudger if you sleep early.

01:23:58--> 01:24:10

Your happiness made you suicidal my happiness didn't make me suicidal. So decide which one is flawed and which one is real. Your drug gave you a thrill why you suicidal

01:24:16--> 01:24:59

so what does the professor say? The article says if you sleep for 20 minutes, you'll be productive for the rest of the day. And you'll be much more productive compared to people who don't sleep. That's logical. We all know that you break it midday. You have that sleep. Allah rejuvenates you gives you that strength. Sleep in the battle is from Allah sleeping Salah is from Chapin and no answer Phil titoli Minella the Sahaba Allah gave them sleep in the battle. What? Better than sleep? What are you talking? Yes. I often say Sahaba slept more peaceful in the battle then we sleep in hotels

01:25:00--> 01:25:00

If

01:25:01--> 01:25:05

they were more happy in the pain than we are in our health

01:25:07--> 01:25:13

and they thought of death more in their weddings than we think of it in our funerals

01:25:17--> 01:26:09

Sahaba were more conscious of death in their weddings then we are in our funerals. It's an appalling state how people behave at funerals today. You see people lighting a cigarette at the grave. Hang on my brother. I don't want to get into your space. But Wallah if you cannot get a jewel, when you standing at the side of the grave, where ultimately we had him, then I'm afraid that janazah of your heart has left. Willow Zellner in a human melodica what can Lemma humulene Mota wa Hashana lay him collection in Coppola marca moody, you know, Allah spoke of the infidels of Makkah today you see this? Allah says their heart has died to read the opening verses of the ages. Although Anana Zona

01:26:11--> 01:27:00

if we send on the angels, what kandalama humulene Mounta and the dead man stands up from his grave waha churna I lay him collection in cupola and we put paradise and hell before them monka moolah, you may know they still won't open their eyes and accept Iman. In fact, Allah says while oferta Hana are they him Baba min Osama if we open up a door of disguise for Balu fee here to June and they ascended again the scholars are here you will appreciate it. I used to alert my students to these points. Allah use the word but Allah Allah didn't use the word butta Vula means to do in the day but the means to do by night, they ascend the heavens in the day where you can see everything clear.

01:27:05--> 01:27:07

And they go up and they see it.

01:27:08--> 01:27:27

Their hearts are so deviated so dark, so blocked, love God who in common so Garrett Avasarala Banach, Nokomis rule. They will say someone has cast a spell on our eyes, we seen things that don't exist.

01:27:28--> 01:27:36

May Allah protect us, protect us? My brother, my sister, the answer to happiness is discipline.

01:27:37--> 01:27:40

The more we in doubt, the more miserable we are.

01:27:42--> 01:28:08

I was saying our generation, today's generation, look at the difference. When I look at my parents, there is a gap between us. I admire my dad, when I see this. Wow. When I look at my mom, one of his salient qualities that stands out for me, regardless of what happens in her life, there's one value of hers. You never ever think negative of Allah.

01:28:10--> 01:28:56

Three godless, you could be in pain and agony, but your lips, your heart, your mind is only thinking positive of your Creator. Those were the value system. Those how strong they were, came down to us. You see there's a drop, I don't have that strength. My threshold of tolerance is not of that. Then I see myself, yourself and the generation that came after us. I'm afraid the gap between myself and my children. That disparity is far wider than the disparity between me and my parents. What went wrong in the last 20 years? Let's go to the drawing board and ask ourselves a tough question. What happened to this generation?

01:28:59--> 01:29:22

You know, what's the problem my brother, we didn't allow them to grow naturally. And we didn't allow them to feel the challenges every time we intervene and rescued and salvage the situation. So we pampered and mollycoddle them, and inadvertently, we gave rise to monsters.

01:29:26--> 01:29:29

Allah speaks about His favors.

01:29:33--> 01:29:44

Allah speaks about His favours on Musa alayhis salam in chapter two into surah Taha, I come back to the professor and asleep and then I'll start wrapping up because a lot of time now.

01:29:47--> 01:29:59

Allah speaks of His favours on Musa alayhis salam and Musa alayhis salam meant to fit around to give Dawa. Then he said, Can my brother Harun come and he came with and Allah said Musa did this for you. I did this for you. I did this for you. I did this
