Oh, come, Alcala, Allah in His Salatu was Salam, friends and elders, mothers and sisters in my 25 odd years of chaplaincy. I doubt I have come across a single social issue, which is more lethal on communities in its entirety, then debauchery and drug abuse. Many might argue this porn addiction, the spousal abuse, there is spouse bashing, etc. Well, the brutal truth is, when a person becomes an addict to drugs, I'm afraid
these things follow a natural cause. There will be many sisters sitting here, and I can share my personal experiences, that they are on the receiving end of the abuse of this drug Edik. And let me say to you, my brother, there is a threshold of tolerance. There will be a day where this woman's going to pick up yesterday your call came from a sister, and she's been calling me for the last four years. And as we know, unfortunately, and I'm not saying it in a position of judging, but part of the addiction is pathological lies. The urge to lie, the crave to lie, it's just like intrinsic and the sister said I'm now done. I'm picking my kids up and I'm going he knows my desperation. I don't
have an alternate accommodation and ends the exploitation continues.
your uh, your Lavina Armano enamel hombre will remain sir. Well, unsolvable Islam, Old Believers, verily intoxicants and gambling, there isn't a crime in my understanding that a drug addict is not prone to
once you succumb to this, there is nothing that you are safeguarded against,
verily intoxicants gambling, dedication to idols, and claiming Omen from arrows which was a practice in you know, the dark era, the ridges, so men normally shaped on on the full fee acts of the devil
Fujitani boo Allah, Allah con to flee home, so stay away from it, so that you may prosper
if I was not involved on a personal level, and I personally did not drive and admit patients into the facility, and I did not counsel people personally, probably I would have translated this idea and moved on Fujitani boo Epstein, la isla come to flee hood, so that you can be successful, but due to my personal interaction, I need to drive this point here. Allah says Fujitani boo Fujitani boo hoo means my brother and my sister. Stay away. If you want to be successful Fujitani boohoo doesn't mean I want to stay away. I hope I can stay away. I plan on staying away
I anticipate giving it up. It's my dream. It's my hope. It's my vision. It's my plan. It's my intention. No, no, no Fauja Danny boo hoo, drop it cold turkey.
How long you gonna keep online?
You the cause of and I'm not coming. I'm talking frankly, I'm talking as a brother to you
that marriage is taking a beating, you seen your parents suffering because one is going on the empathy. The other one is going on the iron fist. So now the problem is one, there is a sister and again, we'll talk about it. The love of a mother is just relentless. This poor mother has found me no less than 100 times. And her dream and a hope and aspiration of a child is he must become the Imam of the haram.
And I, what do I say to her other than Amin? What do I say to her other than Amin? For now he is a drug merchant. The dream of this mother is Allah must make him the imam of haram. This is the dream of this mother.
In the end, the marriage was on the verge of breaking up. So I said now we not understand the implications.
So the debate was do we keep him in the house or do we leave him to go? I said, Listen, my boy, we're not bolting the door. But we have to shut the door we have to close the door. Because as long as you part of the house, abnormality becomes the norm.
You sleep when you want you break every standard. You live as you like, you set the wrong example for your youngest siblings. There is no norm there is no practice. So to stabilize the home, we need to tell you to leave. But we're not bolting the door we closing the door that day you sober This is your house.
In NAMA, you read the shaytaan Who are you to urbaine como la da,
da. Verily, the devil wants to stir enmity and hatred amongst you
through gambling and through intoxicants. You know, I have an eye for wildlife. And I view Safari and I go on Safaris. And often you'll see a pack of dogs, wild dogs, or hyenas attack a newborn calf, and it's not for sensitive viewing. And then in the comments people will say a bit nature is harsh. Nature is not harsh. Come and see those selling drugs and you will know how harsh humans are
you selling a drug? You know a woman is crying you know house is breaking up.
I cannot tell you the tears that I cry on my own side. But just to generate revenue. You are heartless
you have no feelings. You sell in it to that men 3am A sister phone me I'm on my tahajjud met crime. Police knocks my door with my sons.

sooner? No nessa a Bible daddy mill Hubbard when the ayat was revealed over Maroubra tab set in the hyena in the hyena. Allah we've dropped it. There's no looking back. My brother, I need that commitment from you, and to whoever Allah transmits my message across the globe. I never said and I never will say giving up drugs is easy. I have said and I will continue saying it's possible.
No, it's not easy. But what is easy in life? Well, Nakada holla Colonel inside of a cupboard. We've created men and designed a life of challenges.
One person became a prominent, skilled, competent, high flyer. They asked him what's your motivation? He said my father was a drug addict.
So I didn't want to repeat the pattern. I said put an end to it. They asked his sibling What happened to you why you're a drug addict. He said my father was a drug addict.
You can choose to inherit and claim
that you are the consequences of someone else's wrong or you can stop the buck yours.
The choice is yours.

Show me one person who took drugs. And in the end, he was happy. Show me one person. I'll revoke all my claims and I'll stop my narrative.
He's suicidal. He's depressed there's a young boy who found me he only phoned me when he wants to claim his life. That's the standard call out to kill myself.

Malignant dinar says, I was in hij. And understanding that the Kaaba and I'm seeing this multitudes
of people converging, and the thought crosses my mind. Manila Maqbool looming home woman Ilmar dude, yeah, Allah so many people have come here whose heart is accepted and whose heart is rejected. These are the thoughts playing in my mind. With that thought in my mind, I went to sleep. And in a dream I was told to refer Allah Who lil Jimmy Illa Raju Lanois kada, ALLAH forgive everyone but one person. So in my heart, I feel probably I'm the exception and Allah has rejected my hedge. So I got up with a heavy heart in panic anxiety. The entire day passed the next night I went to sleep. And when I retired to bed, in a dream, I was told you're not the exception, but it is a person by the name of
Mohammed bin Harun
So in the morning, I got up in my days of Hajj, and I started inquiring from the people you know of this man. He comes from this particular town, country, etc. They said, Yeah, he's a very noble man is Allah conscious is a sage of the age he devotes his whole night to worship. So I was alarmed by what people were saying versus the dream I had. Finally, I get to the man. And I see he's engaged in prayer and aged person in very humble in his demeanor, and I sit there. So he looks at me and he says, Malik, what's the matter? So there's a moment in my voice and I say, I don't know what to tell you. He says no telling me. He says I'm afraid I had a dream. And in the dream, I was told
everyone's had us accepted but yours.
He said, Malik, you're not the first person to tell me this year in and year out, I perform Hajj. And every year some pious man comes and gives me this bad news. I was in my youth. I was in my prime. I hope my young brother you listening. I hope you're sober enough to process what I'm saying.
While you breathe in and I'm breathing Allah gave us stones in a Matoba to Allah Allah He levena Yama, Luna su A B Jaha. Allah. How much more do you want this mother to cry?
I was at the center one day, and as I came there, I see one person's feet are shackled. So I asked her if it's up what is it? He said no. We intercepted him he was on the verge of killing his mother.
He was on the verge of killing his mother.
I came home I was done. I was high sharib to hum randonneuring The hidden in Lee. I went out with my friends. And then they said Have a drink. So we had a drink.
Years ago I went to take my car this was before I got really introduced to the to what is happening and how lethal it is.
This was many years ago at that time, it was not so rife and rampant.
And I had to just attend to some radio in the car etc so it was a non Muslim and one person was attending to the car and the other person he was doing his concoction now if you don't know it and may Allah never let let us know it because it's not something you want to know. So he's got a glass bottle and he's dropping something inside and he's lighting something so casually I said Hey, mate, a bro what you have to drop this year.
He said if I don't drink this, I will kill half of lens and start with you
if I don't drink this, I will kill half of lens and I start with you.
Obviously I to dash for cover.
So I'm here to narrate the story.
It's laughable. When it's not your family.
It's laughable. When it's not your son. It's laughable when it's not your sibling. But when it's your own, you bang your head and you start asking yourself questions till you design your brain.
You design your brain.
You asked yourself as the demon and the devil descended into my child. Is this become the new shaytaan
I came home I was drunk and high. My mum seen me at Amaya Luffy mushy. I am stumbling and I'm walking. So my mum came to me and she said oh my son. Are you young? mimin Chaka Bong. Oh Alou young mimin Ramadan used to be one nurse who suwama What to spill suck Ron. Oh my son. It's the last day of Shabaan it's the eve of Ramadan. Even the sinners gave up they're wrong and they also fasting and you are drunk.
In my naivety in my stupidity in my intoxication. I slept my mum and she fell into the fire.
It's been more than 30 years I'm coming for hij every year one person comes to me and tells me alas rejected your head
I'm saying make Toba while your mother is alive.
Make Toba Your mum is alive.
There was a brother I went and I met at the center
he said to me,
I pain is I buried my mother drunk.
I didn't know was it the grave? Or what it was? Three days later, I realized my mom passed away.
What is the biggest cause of the problems?
It's our company.
And when we come back, why we don't recover? It's our company.
Give up your friends. No, I cannot give up my friends, then your Elia in your claim of wanting to change.
Simple as that a lot of times, and I'm not passing judgment, I will come to the point if Allah allows me and the time permits, my emotions are high because I have seen too many parents and guardians cry. I'm asking you and we will ask society to intervene. That's my call that when our young men comes out of there, if you and I as intrapreneurs and as businessmen don't give him an opening and don't integrate him and give him some decent salary and don't bring him back into society. Then we prepping him to relapse
after some spoke about UK, I was in the UK and we traveled many times. In fact, I'm leaving again inshallah shortly and some prominent businessmen came to me and they said that we've got some funds and we're thinking of putting up something. I said please don't build an Islamic center or a Muslim school, build a rehab.
Build a rehab. Create a facility.
This is the harsh reality. This is what's happening on the ground.
A Buddha Daraa the Allahu Anhu said in the hierarchy become ill
every fool your best friend is the one who says to you, if have been a Nuzum popular and no mood a brother, come and these are blessed days man, these are a yummy beef. This is monday and thursday bro let's fast. Let's fast. You know what life is running fast and it will catch up
What did you say earlier of the Allahu Anhu say a Helen Helen believe in God the Nestle
a Helen wasa Helen belief in God Nestle was told the Allah il fun kodra while the well Shabaab Oka alum yakun well hello mushy book LM ESL mushy boo for superfun Budhha Masha Babu for Batroun FL suck Allah who had our doc now ml Mobley when the ML bundle I Helen was Sahel and belief in Nestle I welcome old age as it's creeping in stone, Allah infant Rahal and before I realized my youth is just gone and when I try and account for the youth years of my youth I achieved nothing. The Wella Shabaab Oka alum yakun my youth has disappeared, like I was never Young. We're Halal machico Allah Mirza and Olay just set in like I was born old.
We're in a Shara Sahibi gone. And your worst friend is the one who says to you is have been a nautical or natural or Navajo copula and the mood lesson join me when you need to try this one. You haven't tried this one as well as yet. Two weeks ago, a young man phoned me and he says My friends are on debauchery, drugs, promiscuity and I'm trying to rescue them. And I found myself in the rave club.
But I got in there and I had this contradiction and I realize I'm not in the place I supposed to be. I didn't succumb to the virus. But I tagged along and I got in. Anyway, I came out of there. And I repented I regretted. There was a young man, I'll come back to that there was a young man who phoned me. And he says that I committed Zina.
So I said, Okay, you've done the wrong now this is the Toba.
Then he cried. So I said what's the matter? He says I committed Zina on the 15th Night of Shaban.
He said the urge the drug gave me was to do Zina on that night.
Like like this just no understanding to what this is.
So the young man is telling me now he says,
Should I still be in touch with my friends because I'm afraid what they doing? I said to him, you will only stand there as a lifesaver if you are pulling the drowning person out and not if he pulls you in.
You are drowning by your own confession that you ended in the rave club and they didn't come in the masjid. And you say you want to still be in touch. You only extend our hand of help to someone who you pull it out and not someone who drags you in. We're in a shallow Asahi become your worst friend is the one who says is have been not cool. We're not sure of Wornall who copula and no mood. These are the words of a Buddha. It says Come let's drink men. Let's party. Let's enjoy.
One young man said that the first drug I took he told me this. It gave me the thrill of the climax of pleasure with a woman.
And for the rest of the 10 years of my life. I'm chasing that same pleasure but I never got it again.
Like how much more do we need to know a young man I asked him I said What led you to drugs? He said three things bad company. Number two, no Salah number three adventure.
I need to be adventurous. Summary. The Quran speaks about when somebody was asked. Why did you worship the calf Musa alayhis salam was gone. Why did you initiate the worship of the calf? Why did you do this? What did he say? What caused the Lakers so well? Luckily enough say?
I felt like doing something different.
That's the problem.
You need to try you need to experiment. It must be unique. It must be peculiar. It must give you a different kick. I need constant kicks and feelings and excitement and thrill.
There are so many sisters that are crying that are
on the receiving end in marriages
the worst thing you can do my brother is being denial. The worst thing you can do my brother is claim you're a functional addict. The worst thing you can do my brother is your pathological lies.
FIRA around was deviant he was a stray, but what he kept on saying, I guide people and I take them out of darkness.
Ma read come in Lama era wama Hadid comm Illa Sabina Rashad. I met this one youngster at an airport
he was traveling with a group of people
and because I was involved in his case, I hugged him and I said to him, half is of the Quran I said half is up half is up. Your mother's tears makes me restless at night. Is it not doing anything to you?
I cannot sleep when I when I see your mother's call. I don't know what must I take it? And what must I tell this woman
a person came to sit nakoma So what's the way forward? You need to drop your evil friends you come out of the rehab. The rehab has no magic. The rehab is a facility to assist you accomplishing what you want.
You want change then you can change. The devil has no problem with our good intentions as long as it's for tomorrow.
You can throw and say tomorrow tomorrow devils God but you need to do it now.
That's it. You need to disarm yourself. If you keep in yourself armed an access with the phone with money with a girl with friends with network.
When you when it's tough. Then who's paying your bills, who's taking you through
your friends, they know it to be seen.
As if it's upset I can tell you personally how many parents are bring in. Go there to the house. The mother phoned me I sit him down speak to him all night till 12 At night, tell him next morning when picking you up gone disappeared into thin a
a person came to Amara the Allahu Anhu. I'm saying you need to give up your network of friends immediately. And when you come out, if you're part of that network, you are impeding your growth and increasing your vulnerability.
Simple as that chapter close, a person came to Sedna Amara the Allahu Anhu. And he said that even when calculating that Allah, I want to repent he was part of the army of Messiah and then he defected from the army. He was the son in law of Muslimah. Amara, the Alana said well the only advice I can give you is either have fun zeal, Allah al Medina.
You need to change yourself. You must go and stay with the noblest people of Medina. Financial to Allah Tamim Dari. So I went to stay by Tommy daddy Radi Allahu Anhu. And of course, because I was in the company after him daddy Radi Allahu Anhu I witnessed miracles. It says for bein Nama and in the Tamim nano Netta heard that I was sitting by Tamim daddy Radi Allahu Anhu and we were discussing it ha Rajat Nagar. There was a volcanic eruption.
Some years ago, I was in.
We went to Mauritius and then we went to the neighboring island reunion. And that area is prone with volcanic eruptions. So they took us in a chopper and we got to see some live lava. That area is known. So this young man says I was sitting. His crime was what he was part of the army of Musa Lama when he wanted to make Toba. Omar said go stay with the noblest person.
So he said, I was sitting there and then there was this volcanic eruption. So hamara, the Alon who came and he said, Oh, Tommy, attend to it. So I said, How do I attend to a volcanic eruption? He said, No, attend to it. fatahna Yafo Shahabi Yedi. He, he stood up and he started motion in it with his anthyllis receded into the earth. And that's when Sedna Amara made that historical statement. limitedly higher than Buka about Ruqayyah. It is for emergencies like this that we keep you on standby. A Buddha Yeah. But he adopted the company.
Yeah, Johan levena Taqwa Liang Hua Kuno Marisa dt. O you who believe fear
Allah and stay with the truthful. This idea comes in the tail end of the discussion of the book. In the book, there were five categories. There were the Sahaba, who obliged immediately. Alladhina terbaru houfy Saddle Austro. There was the group amongst them who were initially hesitant but then subsequently they obliged me embody Maka Jezero polu. For at minimum, then there was the third group of the Sahaba who didn't have funds who didn't have means. Wala Lavina is a totally Tamela whom Potala Ajay Duma Amina Kumar, LA, they didn't have resources. Then there was the fourth category that was the munaf 18 What are the levena cannibal la hora sola? They were liars. They were liars.
And then there was the fifth category of genuine Sahaba honest, sincere, devout companions, but they did not attend they were made into two groups there were 10 of them. Seven of them repented immediately when Nabi SallAllahu wasallam came. Wow Haruna Uttara forbidden obey him. Hello, I'm Alan Sally ha. They came in they tied them up to the pillar, and then the Toba was accepted. And three of them they delayed slightly but ultimately they also repented they were noble companions were our karuna, Maura Joan and the amarilla ima you are the boom we're in my YouTube or Allah him and of course Allah subhanaw taala accepted the Toba when Allah accepted the Toba, Allah concluded
the narrative and the tale by saying Oh you who believe adopt the company of the truth fool. So the lesson learn from the book and look at that's the beauty of the Quran. The message is one but the deductions are multiple.
When the prophets of Allah ism return from the book, The Munna fitting started line, I wanted to come, I was about to come, I nearly joined you and then the lies. There was a father who called me to test the urine of his son.
And so whenever you tell him to pass urine, then I don't know why I just can't pass water.
I just can't pass water. But as soon as you close the door the urine is flooding.
So anyway, we stand there and he passes urine, the door is closed. But remember by you fully in my brother, you only hoodwink in yourself and my message to you is don't play so long that Allah decides to close the door on you.
Because if Allah closes the door on you know Hafiz Rafiq no rehab, no Salam and Mala nobody can come to your rescue. Because this divine blockage. What does Allah say? The prophets Allah Sam told us man, you eaten with your left hand eat with your right hand. He said law study Oh, I cannot eat with my right hand. Man Munna who ill kibble the Hadith Sahih Muslim. The only thing prevented him was his pride and his arrogance. He could raise his right hand. He was eaten with his left hand. Nobody says some said cool be communicate with your right hand. He said last 30 I'm unable to the visa some said less Takata now you will never be able to.
Now you will never be familiar Rafa who Illa fie. He was unable to raise his hand to his mouth for the rest of his life.
So when the Quran was revealed, work all no colo Bona free akin Tim mimma the Runa la Wolfie Nina work Grown Woman by Nina ouabain Nikka hijab on thermal in Milan they said no no man listen, I can't see what you're talking there's a valium in my era with Everyman and you don't make sense do your thing and leave us to do our thing. There was no blockage. They created a superficial artificial blockage. Then Allah said in our Jalna Allah, Allah will be him again now. We blocked it now. Now we blocked it. Now sometimes Allah says hi Tama. Sometimes Allah says taba. We seal that hard. Why? Nothing gonna go through it.
So the young man
that we close the door, I'm standing there. He passes urine. We take the cup we tested negative.
So he comes out.
The urine is negative, but his attitude is positive.
Did you hear what I said my brother. The urine is negative, but his attitude is positive. Now what's the issue? You see my family? They just doubt me. I say never mind they doubting you. Your attitude tells me you are taking drugs. I don't trust this Uriel. Is it? I said your attitude tells me you taking drugs
When you become a parent,
and then you deal with it,
your parent even if he's gone in his cover, he has forgiven you. But when that reality it's YOU. I don't know if you will forgive yourself. There's a friend of mine he always tells me that he had long hair and his father told him cut it. And he said, No daddy, you don't understand this and that. He says My dad is gone is 10 years now. I cannot look in the mirror. Every time I look in the mirror I see the image of my father.
It gives me nightmares.
So Allah says, Oh, you who believe fear Allah Who knew Massa detail and be with the truthful so what's the message?
What did cover the Allah No, say? We're in Nama and Zhao and journey. Allahu Taala be said.
When the Prophet saw some returned, the number 15 We're making stories, but I spoke the truth. And it became tough. Don't lie. Don't lie. You heard what I've said. Maghrib to isha you going near you lying to your spouse you lying to your parents.
And the strange thing is, you can see the lie. You can feel the lie. You can hear the lie, but he's still lying like he's caught and it's the line. That's what you call pathological liars.

When Allah spoke about the prophets in the Quran in surah two sod and the jelly Lulu coddle every Nabhi was great, but those who within them were amongst the oral azim. Allah spoke about Ibrahim alayhis salam
what's good arriba Donna Ibrahim Allah is Hathaway arco but Olin ad well a bizarre Ibrahim is how can yaku How did Allah define them? Allah said these prophets, they had hands and they had eyes.
What did they have? Hulu is the plural of the word Zoo. AD is the plural of the word. The observer is the plural of the word buzzer. They were people with hands and eyes. The Scholars say that if you use your hands and eyes for the right thing, then in the eyes of Allah, you can say you have the lamb. But if you don't use it, if you are busy selling drugs, using drugs, buying drugs, doing drugs, then that hand you cannot claim having that organ.
My message is my brother to give up son is not easy, but it's possible. We can show you examples of a hundreds of use with the grace of Allah who've turned their life totally around. Mashallah, they've become ambassadors of Deen, because when you see a person on the street, it's not his family dropped him or abandon him. They exhausted everything within their means. And that's what he opted for. They didn't say, you know, pick him up and drop him there. No, no, no. And once the parents are gone, rarely are you going to find that the siblings are going to rally around and rescue. That's the reality.
Move away from such company.
Allah subhanaw taala speaks about the youth who we speak about in the Quran, the people of cough, right. So we live in in a world there was a sister that had rang me Yeah, ilaha illa. Allah, I can cry. She says My son was a drug addict.
And we couldn't understand the gravity of this addiction. So one day in the closet, we found some powder.
And my husband
you know, we sent him back and forth to rehab. Then he changed he came out and Alhamdulillah he's clean for now. So my husband was in his closet, and he found the powder. So he opened the packet. And she called me I remember distinctly on a private number, and I said, No, no problems. Just I don't need to know your identity. I don't know who you are. I don't need to know. The aim is to rescue the problem. Salvage the issue. We don't we don't need information. So anyway, she's talking. She says my son had the addiction. He went to rehab, he came out. My husband was cleaning his closet found this bag, this powder. And then he said let me try and see what's in it. Okay, gee, Ben, I'm
Is the line holding is the gold drop. Next Best Thing she's sobbing is the bed are you there? With the correct voice. Now my son is clean and my husband is an addict.
From here in our neighboring towns
fifth, Natuna AMEA sama Buck Ma.
This is not something you try an experiment.
Now my husband is an addict. My son is clean and my husband is an addict.
And let me also make an appeal.
Coming out of drug is a great thing. But on substituted by smoking and vaping it's just not palatable for a believer. It's just not keeping with the value system of a believer. Take yourself out of all this year. Now. This is this old cloud of smoke.
It just looks so unpleasant. It just looks so unpleasant.
Valid Ben Zaid abou a uban Sarita the Allahu anhu, the host of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, seven months Nabil is Salam stayed in his house what an honor.
In arpha, Kobina we may have Shannon Hakuna fanciful, Bade nebulae Salam bays downstairs, he stays upstairs in his simple structure. We know we visited his good
Live in Istanbul, many people have visited his tomb. Abba, you have been sorry was his Kunia Khalid bin Zayed was his name. So every day when the food used to come back from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam his wife used to prepare, then they used to relish and eat the food. Can you imagine eating the leftover food of Nabil a Salam, like like there's no words to describe that honor. So one day the food came back, untouched. Ya rasool Allah Radha Tasha, Aquila Murphy. Hemo there are yedek I don't see your blessing hands in the food and you've returned it. Have we offended you by the food? I got the smell of some raw onion or garlic in it. And I am a person who converse
with the mullah Iike and the smell can be strong for them. So sensitivity to the mullah Iike I don't eat it.
A haram and Hua Rasul Allah. Owner we have Allah is it haram? No, no Well, I kidney Accra in my personal capacity, I stay away from it, because sensitivity to the mala Iike.
There is a friend of mines who gave up smoking now.
He said only after I gave up smoking. And now when I come in the masjid, and I see a person next to me who smokes. I realized for 20 years what I did to the muscle is next to me. What Allah doesn't what he said to me. He said only now that I've given it up and I see the stench and how unpleasant it is. I've realized for 20 years what I was doing to my fellow Mussolini's.
So what did Khalid bin JW been Saudi say? For ini Accra Whoa, ma Takara Who ya rasool Allah, on me of Allah if you don't like this raw garlic and onion, then I also don't like it for the rest of my life. I also won't have it.
Layer Strabane unassuming, oh mighty farmer. People from my own mother will come and pop boats they will come and take in toxic guns. You Simona hobby lady Ismene ha they will play with the semantics with the linguistics. tranquilizer I need to feel light. I just need to take away money. These are the words the prophets Allah Assam says they will change the name. And today you do it. So today the young man is going to buy cough syrup. codeine. What sprite of his apple tell you and then what happens is drinking it's so much the young man is on adult diapers.
I had read as a child, a compulsive gambler, they were adult diapers. And I still remember that article stuck with me and I couldn't believe it. Now with my own eyes I seen 15 year old boy were in adult diaper. lost control of his functionality. One boy we know of passing out to Kim for CAT scan every scan nothing wrong but drugs
it has paralyzed the society it has destroyed the society.
So the youth as hard as they can have.
What did they do when the wrong was happening? They just said buddies we're not joining you and they went to sleep.
I'm saying walk away that Saturday night and go and sleep. I'm not even if you can make rebonded for Bihar when Nerima Great.
Their challenge was when the tyrant asked them
who's your Lord?
So Allah says whare batana Allah to low beat him is poor move Athol no Rob buena Rob boost sama wa T well art, a Unsuk Na, desert Zuly I'm second Aha. And it deserves really,
that at the time when the tyrant threatened them. We helped them firm not to buckle your friends take out a f one man. It's just casual, it just social. It's just a New Year's Eve. I will tell you the facilities Brahmin come new year because you know your vulnerability.
But a believer is one who rises he understands
and they went to sleep because now what happens if you take a pill and then you want to sleep? Then you want to sleep out for three days. Allah gave them sleep not for three days or three years or 30 years. Allah gave them sleep for 300 years. But pure sleep, divine sleep from Allah
I'm saying to you, my brother.
The pleasure of sin is temporary. It's fake. It's superficial. And it is a vicious cycle that tax it. Any sin. You live in a life of cheating. Lying.
Hiding your phone hiding this no no nothing. Nothing just my friend. Yeah, yeah, yeah, we were doing a business deal. What business No, not your business.
We're doing a business deal.
And the addiction is going and going, and every addict but why you didn't speak out earlier. Because if I want to give it up, I can give it man.
I can give it up any time
till you came out and the bubble bursts and you got exposed. And now you still resisting help how many youngsters we taking them to the center, they opening the door while we drive in.
If you don't want to change, nobody can change for you. Get off the road and move off the family, divorce that woman move away from that house. Allah hasn't made others responsible for your actions. You're a mature person, you will be held accountable. Yes, we want society to come. And that's why I asked society to take one person's recovery. My estimation is you need 20 People minimum.
If you don't have that network in place, the chances are very slim. It's like taking a person understand my analogy. Who met up in an accident. You don't get a chopper. You don't get a paramedics you say no wait, I put him in my car.
I put him in my car. Put him in my car. Wait, let me carry him. You break any more? Then you say no, no, no, I go to the clinic. I know. I know. I know how to stitch I know I've worked in trauma. I've worked in trauma. No, no, no, no. You need people to come the jaws of life to take him out of there. You need the paramedics to put him in the ambulance. You need the trauma unit to stabilize him. He needs to be taken into ICU by Allah, one drug Edik will burn 20 members out. If you don't have a full team, the chances of recovery of that individual are very, very slim. Exceptions is always there. And that's a different scenario. But we talking of the average of is up Am I correct or not?
You need somebody the people at home are done. They had the roof. You need family to come siblings to come Okay, I'll pick them up.
Somebody needs to fit the boat. Somebody needs to rescue that to a woman with a child club. The woman Woman is now in labor. She's in her ninth month. And yeah, he goes and tries his tricks again.
Now what happens to her? Then you have feuds amongst the family. No, no is the wife made him do it or this one made him do it. You have other issues the marriage is breaking.
You need an extended family network. And then to you need that individual. See in the incident of the book. Allah subhanaw taala speaks about the Muna 15 that they didn't participate. And they said no, no, we wanted to. We wanted to. I really want to. I normally say to them, I said See you are at the position. I'm sure you'll agree with me you don't even believe yourself.
Nevermind anybody else. You must now only prove with action don't make any claims. you've exhausted your time for claiming you've exhausted it. It's over. It's just there's no more a time to say I will do I promise give me a chance. Now you just got to hang on and prove yourself through action.
So the Munna 15 did not participate. Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Lo Arado Jalla Abdullah who wrote the
LO Arado horo Dolla dolla hora de, if you wanted to change and come out in the book, you would have surely made some preparation. So what's your plan for the Saturday night?
Live last week I was speaking to one youngster. So his father said Give him give him some encouragement. I said the problem with our youth today is if you ask them, you know what you want to study? They will tell you clearly what they don't want to study. But they can spell it clearly what they want to study.
No, no, I don't want to do medicine. No, no, no, no. Father is a specialist. Now. My father was too long, normal. Okay, that's fine. Nobody can impose on you. You don't want to do medicine. That's fine.
But do you know what you want to do? No, you don't know what you want to do?
Well, that's the problem.
You need to know what you want in life.
In Islam, you're a child or you're an adult. If you're a child we hold you and hug you and we kiss you. And if you're an adult you respect assume responsibility. But we got a scenario yo when you hold him a I'm not a child men as salam
Don't kiss me when zona.
And then when you tell him that grow up, no, I'm a young person, life is young.
fee and Tatula will be toilet. Delhi Luna holla, at the Millea Radha, Cathy, remember Nara tomb and foster home use the Runa Roth butter feta it like incredible. Clearly it's mentioned. If you don't take action, you're Elia in your claim.
What's your action? What What's your position? What are you doing?
Have you given up your friend Have you started working? If you miss one Salah in the masjid, you've dropped your guard and increase your vulnerability. That's it. I know of a person is said that drug merchants found his number. Though he changed three phones in 10 years they found his number after 10 years. Does he is ruthless. This is wicked, this evil.
They just go to sell you one and then it's done.
There's no limit to it afterwards.
When the devil will May Allah protect us when the occupants of hell will enter into hell. See, Allah speaks of two different verses. The devil will say to everyone in Allaha Conewago del hottie where we're at to confer our love to come. Allah made a promise and I made a promise. Allah's promise is clear. My brother, obey me and will be peace, there'll be peace. Allah says in the Quran, Allah will the judge Allah Allah como la Lolita, Sanofi one na ra mobile sera I've made the night a place of peace in Romani. It's written so amazing in a sukoon and Nancy, Phil Layli hola UK some when the night sets and the Quran says people retire, humans retire in different ways for our Hello la Filati

I'm thoroughly him was clearly him in originally when this one and people have sin. It's a Saturday night. It's New Year's Eve. It's it's a metric night. It's a bowl party. It's a great it's a rave party. It's happening, the night is young.
I have only been exposed because in my travels at times we've arrived at the hotel at late night. We were once in the UK and they booked us in a particular hotel. So after the lecture when we came back to the hotel, I asked the host I said were you trying to test the shoe use him and
I'm like where did you book us?
He said no because of proximity to the venue. This was the hotel I couldn't believe my eyes he said this is norm This is every Saturday This is what happens.
You cannot process is like when you look at this year and then you think let does anybody know here there's something called Death

Well, hello pa RT yes guna Illa hello with the family him and the pious. thy peace is recitation of Quran. There is something else in this. There is fake pleasure in Rome in your gaze. There is divine pleasure in restraining your gaze. There is fake pleasure in popping your bull by Allah the strength and the sweetness in resisting temptation, and then holding on and each time it's getting stronger and a different milestone is indescribable
as those that have tasted it
so my message is my brother
First, give up your give up your friends. If you're not giving up your friends, disarm yourself, you know your vulnerability, don't do anything to increase your vulnerability. Break away from that network. There was a youngster that I asked him, I said, Why are you taking this drug? He said, Every weekend, I need a car, I need money, and I need a woman. And I don't have access to either of the three. So I take one drug, and it gives me the thrill of all three.
Simple as that.
So I feel like I own a gun.
I feel like I have access to a woman. And I think I got money.
So this is the fake pleasure that he gives me. And he just keeps on going round and round. I often mentioned
the incident of
Eos Rahima hula, because it's so rich in its meaning. When somebody had caused him and asked him, What's the logic that alcohol is forbidden when all the individual ingredients are pure, right? It's water. It's sugar, it's grape juice, etc. And then you say alcohol is forbidden. Long story short, he said, if I take water and I sprinkle it on you, will it hurt you? Is it No, I'll probably get a bit wet. If I take sand and I sprinkle it on, you know, I'll just get a bit dusty. And if I take some grass or straw and I hurl it at you probably I'll just get two but a stain or two. But if I take that sin, and then I put water over it, and then I put grass and then I put it through a baking
process until it ferments and matures. And then I make it a solid brick and I
heard that brick towards you. He says of course it's fatally by Clay my life. I said well, that's the drug.
That's the drug. It takes you out of what our visit was saying? The hadith I remember reading this hadith until Naevi, Leia Tejana Allah alma de Gama Allah Bani Israel has naturally been naturally hotter in Ghana Minho, mon uma who Allah Nia la cocina de uma de may yesno Dalek like when we read it. 96 When I was doing the movie in Dora, I still remember when I was doing the dialogue, and then we did the masala if a person divorces his wife on the first day, and the ayat of the Quran, he didn't consume it. Divorce on first day, like like kindess happen.
You know, the focal how often give a photo of a missile a hypothetical scenario, the hadith of Jeremy V everything that plagued the previous nations will happen to the extent that if a man slept with his mother, people in the soma will sleep with their mothers. Now you heard it from her face up like can it be more gruesome?
As a community we need to rally. We need more programs. We need more activism. We need more mobilizing, and our sisters unfortunately are gripped in it as well.
Not to trivialize the wrongs of men.
But Allah has created a woman with a greater level of morality. When Allah spoke of the crime of stealing. Allah first spoke of the male thief, then the female thief, because you're a man you earn in you have your own revenue and you still steal in a salary or Sarika Topher, Kotaku idea Houma. And when Allah spoke about Xena and fornication, Allah spoke of the female adulterous first because you are an embodiment of morality.
But this thing strips you of your sanity? One villager was asked you know someone say why you don't drink
so you say no for social reasons for religious reasons, for dietary reasons is why you don't drink. He said Why must I drink something that drinks my sanity?
Okay for Ashura, BOMA? Yes Robbo actually.
Okay for Ashraf Omar Yes, Robert, actually,
let me say to you, my brother, I want to try and draw it to a close.
We cannot judge society.
And many parents are scratching their head. Why has this happened to me?
This is not a reflection of your deficient upbringing. There could be cases in which you fell short, and those issues need to be addressed. But there are cases where parents did everything within their reach, to guide to steer to nurture those children. But unfortunately, the society out there the evil the vulnerability, the phone, the natural
Work, The Social Network. Children from the best of homes have big F cecum. So we cannot attack any family and saying, You know what, this is the result of his father being like this. That's the first thing. Number two, like obvious upset when there's a crisis. Now we need treatment. Now to sit and say, no, no, we cannot go to the center, he will no she will know. The problem is bigger than society discovering it. The situation is greater than you cannot nip this in the bud. This person needs ICU. He needs a pulmonologist. He needs a cardiologist, he needs us physician, he needs a specialist. We don't have this expertise at home, he needs to be put into a center first the system
needs to be flushed out of it, he becomes sober, then you go for your counseling, then you start giving him spirituality to build his spiritual strength so that he can become resilient. So it's a team work. And it's a long effort. If you feel we're going to keep it within the house. It's a losing battle. It's a losing battle.
What's the pledge and that's the pledge I want to take from my fellow brothers. You know, to the credit, if I can use that term of those that have unfortunately, succumb to drugs. There's one thing I have found in every one of them, they soft natured.
You speak to the mother, and she'd say, but this is my softest child. This child of minds is so sweet. This child of minds is so obliging this child of my zeal to the world for me, wallow in his straight in his clean, even his brothers and his siblings cannot come close to him. So that's one amazing quality in my own observation. I have seen like nine out of 10 they are soft in their approach in the demeanor, but unfortunately, it's Amal hubba if you have taken to a crime that solos all your virtue. You have taken to a crime we simply cannot balance it out. This one crime will wipe out everything that's that's the reality. That's the nature of this offense. What was the pledge the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took from the woman when they accepted Islam and that's the pledge I take from you my brother when a disciple goes to a mentor a Johanna being your either Giacomo Amina to your burn your Anika Allah Allah you Shrek Nabila he che wala Yes, RetinA wallenius Nina wala, Petula Allah, Allah Tina be both done when they come to you and they pledge to you that they will never make sure it
does drug is such it can make you make Cofer [???] claim after say do anything while I yes retina and they pledge that they will not steal. If you make a commitment I will never steal and I will be honest, and I'll be transparent then you will limit your resources by that confession. But when you will lie and distort then you'll give yourself wings
while on your tuna hola de Hoon back at that time they were killing their children. Today unfortunately we've had cases where they killing their own parents.
Oh Allah Yeah, Sina Caffee ma roof and they will not disobey you in the matters of good phobia or Hoonah was tougher Allahu Nila than owner be of Allah. Take the allegiance and make dua for them. Men Huckle married a year the ruler who the other might say it's your duty to make dua for your disciple, and rest assure your parents are making dua for you. But the change has to come from within yourself. Satan unknowingly Sallam told his son, oh my son, stop your arrogance.
The problem with the youngster is he thinks he's too smart. So normally, Salam said, you're gonna you're gonna have my son come on onto the boat. Come on to the ark. Otherwise, this is the revelation. The sunset. So are we illegible? No dairy, this floods I can deal with it. I gotta hide out you don't even know about my hideout has a clue. This is logic. This is logic challenging revelation wahala bina humulene moich. And this is a father calling out you know, whenever I think and I see parents cry, and I think of this ayat, and I cannot imagine the pain of new Hala his salaam, a father once I myself heard
More parents than I can count St. Yalla. If he's not going to give up this drugs, and this fear of him losing Eman, Allah I'm begging you when he's clean and sober. Take him away. I will live with the loss of a child. But I can't live with the fear of my child losing his Imani.
You know what step for a parent to say.
No person plans to prepare for the death of his child. That is why the Allah must say when Allah tested Ibrahim alayhis salam, O, Allah tested him with the most supreme sacrifice. The Quran says If Allah was to tell you claim your own life, very few people will do it. While Oh Unaka Taberna I lay him a nickel to know and forsaken. And if we had to tell you claim your life, very few would have obliged if Allah Dhoni Ibrahim alayhi salam kill yourself relatively it would have been easier because it's a painful process from the time you receive the revelation to the execution of the injunction. But Allah totally him slaughter your son, that is painful from the time you heard it.
And it doesn't end after you slaughtered your child the pain continues.
So the most supreme sacrifice that could be taken hola put it on say hi Bri Malay Salam and of course he obliged for a Tama Hoon, he obliged, but we don't want to go into the academics of embargo, Seeking Alpha, boom, etc. A mother saying Allah, if my child is going to lose it, let him die.
And he can't be bothered.
He can't be bothered.
So I'm saying to you,
you have to come out with that serious commitment in yourself. And gradually the strength will come.
A summary makes mention of the incident that he says I went into one tribe in Yemen, in the search of learning Arabic and I seen it was there was graffiti on the wall. So on the wall it was written there Billa Hey, are you are sharp, up be Rooney, oh, people helped me there is a young man who is infatuated over a woman.
I remember one of the first cases I had done dealt with after I had just graduated. And it was one of the very painful things
that due to drugs, there was promiscuity.
And then in the family setting,
there was a child that was born.
And this child had reached of an age.
And the child developed a rare condition, which required a blood transfusion from the parents.
the father was taken to the hospital.
when they matched his blood,
it was discovered that he is not the father.
And that exposed the betrayal of his wife, which was an offshoot of drug at a time when the child had developed some rare condition 10 years into the marriage. Now understand the scenario. You married you thinking this is your child, the child is 10 years old, there's a serious blood disorder, you're going to do medical intervention. Yeah, yeah, of course. It's my child, man. I know a friend of mine says My wife has just given a kidney to his son and may Allah give them both Shiva
and to go there and discover I'm not the father. So then who's the father of this? Can you imagine? Look at how vicious the cycle is.
The industry that claims to generate revenue, through alcohol through intoxicants and the rest of it, and then look at the flip side of it, the carnage the killing, the spousal bashing, the accidents and all that that happens in society match the two and balance the two today I read an article that 50% of South African youth are exposed to serious porn 50% That staggering
and 10 become porn addicts. A Muslim person wrote that article 50% of South African youth are viewing porn, one in every 210 out of them are becoming addicts, which obviously will compromise functionality in his marriage.
It's a vicious circle. Whichever way you go through what did the Prophet sallallahu wasallam say her fertile Jana to Bill McCurry will have faith in Nairobi, SHA Awad, hell has been decorated by all this adornment. It looks so nice. It feels so good. So you get in the club, right? And now you get that adrenaline. You get that excitement. The devil has pumped you up. You're gonna pop this year, you're gonna feel good. You're gonna feel right, you're gonna feel high, you're gonna feel good. Come on, Sally. shaytani is Karl inside Nick for he tells you make cover. So he gives you all the push and drive. The devil covers all the loopholes. I tell my wife does that. Tell my boss? Does
that tell my friend does that tell my son? Yeah, I do this I cover every loophole. When at that time the brain has been blocked, all the loopholes are covered.
Finally, when you finish the drug, and now the effect has worn out, the devil has disappeared into thin air. But you can exit from the air holes, you got to come out of the door.
Now you got one of two options. So that's exactly what the devil did in the form of Soraka in the Battle of butter when he came to the as the leader of the banana and he came to the kuffar and he said, Don't worry tomorrow I'm with human all the way I'm covering you. You got my back. And when the battle came, he turned around Naka Sala RT Bay, he turned around isn't that a you promise you're gonna be with us? No, no, I dropped you in now you deal with it. You made the bed your baby.
I know of a young man. He had a passion for a particular woman, and of exceptional beauty. It was a long process finally got married against the acceptance of her family, etc. Unfortunately, got involved in a drug then became guilty of disloyalty and infidelity. The woman left him and he's gone. Now he's crying a song of total depression, dejection, isolation, and suicidal. Your parents will hang on longer than your spouse, your siblings will hang on less than your spouse. But at some point, everyone will get off.
Your parents will hang on less than yourself more than your spouse because it's my blood, my son, your spouse will last longer than your siblings. There might be exceptions. I'm talking of my own steps, 25 years. But at some point, everybody will get off. There was a person that I've been working with very closely, his mother told me ma min, my apologies, but I can't take my son in my house. Then 12 o'clock at night the dog gets knocked. Then there's a fight outside the earth. Then there's swearing here, then there's gunshots. I cannot I'm old. I'm weak. I'm frail. If he needs to sleep in the street, may Allah reward you for what you're doing for him. But I cannot allow him in
my house is it is I don't function normal with him here. Nothing is right.
My brother my message is there is hope.
You are fortunate that we have centers here. You are fortunate that we have helping hands and social workers. You are fortunate that today we have an amalgamation of two different organizations. But let me tell you, even if half is up doesn't have the courage to tell you. This man is burnt out.
This man is burnt out. We seen our motorhome Khalil by May Allah grant him Jana, and we seen him going down. And he got burnt out. And he moved on. I'm telling you, because I found him so many times. And he's, he's he's burnt out his energy he's done. His reserves are down. We need somebody else to come in someone younger, the drugs are changing. The demands are too much. This is intrusive invasive to his life.
We can turn this narrative and you have the strength and the capacity. I remember a young boy saying to me, I was giving a talk to youth
And subhanAllah have another thought I'll share it with you in that I said delete all your haram context. He said I own switched my phone on in the program and I deleted it 10 years around the joy the happiness the bliss Allah gave me I make dua for you every day. There was a man in California he was of have gone region.
I'm only sharing this in gratitude to Allah and I ever thought of it now. So this young boy unfortunately had succumb to drugs. I was there, you know, many years ago? And I spent three Ramadan's so these youth used to come and sit in my talks.
And then I used to spend time with them at NIDA was to take a drive downtown California, San Francisco, etc. And with the grace of Allah subhanaw taala Allah gave them a diet and they change their life.
Anyway, I completed my Ramadan program and I went the next year when I came, this brother came running to me and he says, You have to come home my parents want to meet you. So I said, Okay, I just landed I'm tired. There's no you have to come. By Allah. His parents were old, aged, frail, weak, senile. I got to the house with the walking stick. They stood up and they just came and hugged me like like a moon came in their house. So I'm like, pleasantly excited, but I'm trying to reconcile. They said my son was on drugs. We were cursing him. He was cursing us. Since he attached himself with you and your lectures, Allah changed his life. For one year we make dua for you every
I'm saying to you, my brother, you have the potential. You have the mind. You need to apply yourself.

The devil made a vow. You know, there are many topics in my life I've spoken on but I speak on it purely on theory and academics. This is not a topic of academics in theory. I've been in the thick of this, and my heart is in this year, and my heart cries, my heart cries there are parents whose phone numbers when they flesh on my phone, I simply don't take it because I don't know what to tell them anymore.
I simply don't know what to tell them anymore. I'm tired. And like I said, The woman is having hope Allah was making him the imam of the haram. What do I tell this mother other than Amin?
And of course we Allah, we have our hopes. We don't give up hoping Allah never, never, never. Not they assume Rohilla Jacoba de Salam is crying for the reunion of Yusuf and Allah test him

If I wanted to know from the Nabhi of Allah, regarding this, the pre discharge before relationship with your spouse,
does this result in Buzu goosal.
But I didn't ask the Prophet salallahu Salam, because if I ask him the ruling, it refers to the moment of intimacy with his daughter.
So how can I ask my hubby as much as he's my hubby, but his daughter is in my Nikka and I know the ruling. So he told me that when I saw my dad, you go, you do me a favor, go to in the visa lRSm and ask the visa lightsome a person is asking when he's intimate, intimate with his spouse. And then there's this discharge before relationship. What's the ruling of this discharge? That was the modesty that was the society that was the makeup of our community.

There was a person who repented and he went to a pious men. He said, You know what? I shouldn't be bragging. But I think I'm more pious than you are got more virtue than you. So he said how do you mean how do you claim this? He said Allah says in the Quran when you repent, Allah will convert your vice into virtue, and definitely my visor was more than your virtue. So now that I made Toba, I'm hopeful I got more reward than you. It's a verse of the Quran. So this is my message.
To make a mistake is human to persist is devilish.
To make a mistake is human.
The first time was a mistake. The second time was calculated, then what's the new thing? No, no, I gave divorce while I was under the influence.
Now you're trying to tamper with the rulings and you're trying for justification. That's a separate issue altogether. He gave three blocks. Now when he's sober by that time his wife is tired.

Allah didn't say if you do wrong, and you make Toba I'll conciliate Allah said I will forgive it. And Allah did not say I'll forgive it. He said I will change your vice into virtue.
And ethnic Ethier says why? Why? What's the logical process of the conversion of vice into virtue? Because when you change your life, then every time you will pass a drug merchant, every time you will pass that same place, you will cry and say Allah how many of my Saturdays went here? Allah how many 1000s I threw in here, your allah how many of my holidays went here? So every venue of sin will be a renewed Toba?
So in that sense, your sin becomes a catalyst for reformation. Why am I Valka Illa Liana who could Lama the Kurama mava nada Amma was started Gerard was thankful for Yun polyboard dumbleton Attend behind the Liberty bar.
