We're calling the Vu sallallahu taala alayhi wa sallam

00:00:54--> 00:01:49

Allahumma in Urdu pika means Shatta Wale. Oh kumbhakarna alayhis Salatu was Salam. Honorable scholars respected brothers, friends and elders, mothers and sisters. One of the greatest differentiating factors between us and our pious predecessors is they exploited time objectively and we waste time casually. As an adversary Rahim, Allah was once asked, described Sahaba in a common definition. You seen the Sahaba and Hassan pastor he himself was so great that someone describing Hassan bacillary Rahim Allah said in our own serie Rahu Kalani at wako Luca family he is a Amara Bhima roofing can Ahmed and Naseby he will either Nana and Moon Corinne Karnataka Nessie Allahu wa a

00:01:49--> 00:02:34

to whom was suddenly a nanny nurse the hidden be Murphy ad him. What are you to know some of the Gina la Polly Bina marinda Whoa, this is such an amazing description and being part of the fraternity of scholars or as they perceive us to be male lawmakers amongst Rama, this gives you a shiver in your back. Somebody asked regarding Hassan pessary that you live close to him describe has empathy to us. He said he is a man between host private and personal life, there's no disparity. If you get into his house, or you see in his public life, he's one in the same person. It's very easy to create an image in public but it's very, very difficult to deliver on that perception in our four

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

walls of our house.

00:02:36--> 00:02:45

In Muslim Sharif in the macadam on page 20. There is the quotation of Abdullah bin mobarak. He said I had heard about Abdullah bin hottel

00:02:46--> 00:03:21

Abdullah bin Mahara. I had heard about this person, and I read about him and I heard about him I was so impressed about him, but I had not met him that if I had to die without meeting him, and on the day of Tiamat Allah said to me, would you want to go to Jana Abdullah or what would you want to meet this man first and then go to Jenna, my passion to meet him was of such a caliber that I was prepared to put my whole in my entry into gender on a roll momentarily, that Allah first I would meet this man and then go to genda.

00:03:23--> 00:03:52

When you're hungry, you don't want to do anything but it when you tie it, you don't want to do anything but sleep. When you have a call of nature, you want to do nothing but get to a washroom when a lawmakers amongst those that would be granted entry into genda. Can you imagine the excitement, the anxiety, the jubilation that would grab the occupants on the day of the Yama to get into Jenna Lowe, who used to be in at the hotel Jana ouabain and Alfa Abdullah locked onto an

00:03:53--> 00:04:23

agenda. If I was stolen the day of the AMA, do you want to go straight to john or do you want to meet this man first see him and then after that you can go I would have probably said to Allah first let me meet the men for the Mara Ito. But then when I finally met him, I seen such a disparity and discrepancy between what I heard and what I seen that leave alone an animal I will give more regard to the droppings of an animal than sit with this man.

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

Leave alone an animal I will value the droppings of an animal Canada rotten. That droppings of an animal, I would say is more precious than sitting with this man. Simply because what I heard what I was told and what I seen was two different things. One of the great luminaries manana Hussain Ahmed Madani Rahim Allah, a great intellectual giant, a great scholar. I heard from people who sat close to him, they mentioned that this man was such, the more you can close it to him, the greater you

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

impression became about him. And that was the quality actually of our Habib sallallahu wasallam to be impressed with a man at an arm's length from a distance. It's very easy. It's the whole world today we're just creating images creating images. The messenger sallallahu Sallam was the only human whose most private life could be exposed in public and it only gave a flagrant there was no stench in it.

00:05:28--> 00:06:15

The most private the most intricate the most personal aspects of our beloved Habib Sal Allison's life could come out in the domain and in that there's guidance and and and you know, navigation for the oma so anyway has an anniversary Rahim Allah. Someone asked regarding Hassan pastor he said in November on Surrey Rahu Kala Ania T. He is a man in his private and personal life there's harmony wako Luca family he, these absolute his utterances are synchronized with his actions. His utterances are synchronized, a villager who reverted to Islam. He said la de la Ilaha Nabeel ami and the hula Yamamoto be hired in Illa Cana okay then behave well Anna and Sharon in luck. Illa can over

00:06:15--> 00:06:31

lateritic in Lahore. The thing that impressed me about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was, I never heard him utter a act of virtue, but that he executed it. And I never heard him prohibit advice, but that he was the most distant individual from him.

00:06:32--> 00:07:07

And I think probably that is our biggest setback. And that is the biggest snag we face on a macro and a micro and on a macro level, as a father as a guardian as a custodian to my kids. Listen, boys, don't do this. Don't smoke. Don't use vulgar. Don't peruse porn. Don't do this. Don't do that. But my children are watching the observant. One of my scholars used to say and I really liked this and identify. He said everybody is observing your shenanigans. Some are silent out of dignity and others are silent out of desperation. But no one's blind.

00:07:09--> 00:07:55

Some are silent. Well, you know what, my job will be compromised, the left club will be jeopardized. There's so many other things that would implicate It's a family issue. Why get why get yourself involved? Why get yourself why tarnish yourself why soil yourself and others a dignified family's life he should know better what he's doing he should think for himself. But Allah is observing but even the creation of Allah is observing workone Malou fissara Allahu Allah calm or pseudo Menon? What's the Torah Dona Illa Allah milva Shahada for Yuna Bo combi ma quantum mellow say unto them, Yamato do fissara camara pseudo Allah and His newbies observing and the believers are also

00:07:55--> 00:08:47

observing. The believers are also observing. So anyway, what did he say he was in number one sorry, Rahul Colonia de la Toluca family, Mr. Obama roofing Canada melon scbwi what is Anna and Moncure in Karnataka? necesito Wanaka Dora to whom Mr. Ghani and honey nurse Zani then be Murphy ad him while he to NASA, Dr. Gina la he, I noticed that he kept himself independent from the things of people. He was never one that was the hankering behind the material pursuits of others. And I found people always converging around him to draw from his knowledge. So Khalid has buka Khalid Khalid, who was narrating this profile of Hassan bursary, the person said to him, Hoss, buka, Holly Holly, that's

00:08:47--> 00:09:34

adequate. k four and this is such a rich tribute of Hassan bursary. k for your lil loco moon Coleman Fie him Mr. ohada. How can a nation dva whose leaders are like this? How can a nation lose its moral compass whose leaders are like this? You know, there's a beautiful quotation in Tempe we'll have it in. And this gives us each to reflect because we live in a world where it's very easy to pass the buck on. I often say Sahaba We're a group of people who used to deflect praise and embrace criticism, we deflect criticism and embrace praise. So how about were people that used to deflect praises? No, no, no, that's not for me. That's for him. That was a harbor. They were not out

00:09:34--> 00:09:57

searching, hankering waiting for praises. No, no, they were happy to pass it on to others. But when criticism came, they were ready to take it on. And we the direct opposite. When it comes to criticism he was talking to you know, he was implying you, it's everybody else. And when it comes to the praise immediately we just want to come forward. Unfortunately, that is our condition. May Allah protect us.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

So

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

Anyway Hassan al bursary Rahim Allah, this great scholar, he had the opportunity of interacting with the Sahaba or the loved one whom they cannot be a greater honor. Someone asked him I'm Shafi Rahim Allah regarding Ahmed Ibn Abdul Aziz, who was known as the second aroma. And regarding CBD now more out of your loved one who was the scribe of Revelation, the brother in law of the messenger sallallahu wasallam, who was a great individual, Ahmed Abdul Aziz or sadhana Mojave, or the alano said now we are the Ilana was the brother in law of the prophets analyze and describe of Revelation, Allah who made the Mojave or will he be like guide more than we are the olana and guide people

00:10:39--> 00:10:53

through more comfortable ye someone whom the Navy of Allah delegated the colossal task to capture revelation. You can imagine what a rich eco late this is that you trust in Him with revelation.

00:10:55--> 00:11:29

And what did say the name of shafia Rahim Allah said, he said, Our Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz and his likes, and this was a man of absolute justice. It was a second Romo read his era, he's added was a fresh breath is added brought great calmness to the Muslim land. During his error. There were numerous occasions when you would see the wolf and the sheep dream from a common Well, this is mentioned in Tafseer Kabira. So a shepherd came and he looked at the strange sight and like, wow, how did this happen?

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

We cannot even see mother in law and daughter in law walk together.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

Leave a lone wolf in sheep.

00:11:38--> 00:11:53

That's become nowadays you don't even see father and son. It's a lay aside. It's a rainy site where father and son are talking or sitting together. It's just you know, a business related. And that's about it. They cannot share a discussion. They cannot talk together.

00:11:55--> 00:12:17

I'm gonna answer the alano when he was in the throes of death, his son was there at his bedside, the conqueror of Egypt. Dead you're in the throes of death safely mode? Can you perhaps describe what your emotions and feelings are? I don't want to be insensitive to the moment but once you pass or nobody will tell me what's death all about? Can you tell me what's your feelings?

00:12:19--> 00:12:22

najiba dhania, focus, Audrey.

00:12:23--> 00:12:28

Oh, my son. It's like the mountains of the world. I exclusively on the chest of your father.

00:12:30--> 00:12:36

Gun ajibola dunya. Focus on the amarula the conqueror of Egypt.

00:12:39--> 00:13:00

Then he slips into a coma. Then he comes out of that. And he's conscious. So the sun nudges him dead. Sorry. You were saying and then you passed on? Are you back there? Can we talk you were saying like the mountains of the entire world on your bosom? What can any Atlanta fishermen fit to build a bra? And I feel like I'm gasping for breath from the eye of a needle.

00:13:02--> 00:13:15

And then he said those famous couplets are two R's Allahumma inika Americana phocoena wanna hate Anna fermenter hanaa wala Yana Illa folk Allahumma la Toby Yun for underseal Walla

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

Walla Mustang Kiran Bella Mr. Faron?

00:13:21--> 00:13:43

Allah you told me to do a lot of things in my life. Unfortunately, I did not oblige Allah you told me to abstain from a lot. Tragically, I did not restrain Allah my hopes are only in your mercy and nothing else. I want to be upfront. I'm not strong that I'm going to take on the angel of death. I'm not going to take him on. I'm not strong Allah. Allahu Allah azza wa

00:13:44--> 00:14:16

You do 1000 things. yo maya romola who Jamie on the phone Allah who come if leafeon Allah Subhana Allah Allah. Allah says many of the disbelievers as they spoke lions in this world, they will try and speak a lie on the day of the AMA thinking perhaps it's going to buy them time there. But it's not going to help them in any way.

00:14:19--> 00:14:48

Anyway, where to where I'm saying we live in a world where there is no bonding. There is no time there is no togetherness. We were just speaking now, and I mentioned it recently also in some of my talks we live in in a world of digital consumption. Last week on one of the local radio stations, there was a discussion and I tuned in YouTube records 100 billion hours of viewing daily.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

What staggering facts are that figures 100 billion hours of viewing daily ways the almost time

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

Gone, has an bursaries and I stayed with the Sahaba. And that's the focus of my dog, a duck to Guam and Ghana hadoo, whom a Shahada, Allah. Omri Minh who Allah de Rami, digest this profound statement. If I have to summarize the Sahaba in one statement, then who were the Sahaba they were a nation who were very possessive over time and very generous with wealth.

00:15:31--> 00:15:42

You could get any amount of money out of them. They were easy money, take it, no issues, how much you want. So how about casual when it came to money, they could give 10s of 1000s.

00:15:45--> 00:16:26

In fact, there is an amazing incident. I was just teaching it the other day, so I have a flash of it. I'll just share it with you on the occasion of better better. The messenger Sessoms uncle a burst of the olana was captured. He was part of the capital. He wasn't a Muslim at that time. And he had come with a large amount 700 gold coins, which was great value. And he was captured by the Muslims. He was apprehended, his assets were intercepted. And then he came forward and then each captive had to give a ransom to buy his freedom. So a bunch of the olana at that stage was not a Muslim. So you asked the messengers, a lot of them that Listen, I came with a lot of money and the

00:16:26--> 00:16:33

Muslims have captured me and they've also taken my money. Can't you just assume the money that they have taken from me as a ransom

00:16:35--> 00:17:05

the money that I have been apprehended I have been made a captive and the money that has been taken just take that as a ransom. Nobody says him said no, the time at which you were apprehended you were intercepted. You will come in to fight against us You will not a believer and at that stage as well. He was still not a believer. So this is booty to the Muslims. This is booty to the Muslims, you will have to give your ransom and Allah revealed the verse Yeah, you wanna be openly manaphy ad communal Astra II Allah Milan houfy todo

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

el amin, Milan, houfy, boo boo.

00:17:10--> 00:17:55

Oh, Mohammed saw some say to these captives that are in your hands and in your possession. That if you are sincere in your heart, and you are honest, and you have good intentions, then a long will give you much more than the wealth that was taken from you. above the law said I am a living statistic of this ayah. At the stage that this had happened, I was not a believer. Then I was taken as a captive. My family had to give money to get my ransom. I then accepted Islam. Allah gave me so much wealth, so much wealth. At that time I had lost 700 coins. Now at any given time I have minimum 20 slaves and each one's income is in excess of 20,000 theorems.

00:17:58--> 00:18:19

Anyway, coming back to the point I said has empathy describing the Sahaba that they were a group of people when it came to money, their hand was loose. They say in English My father told me a young boy says oh my son There are two types of people. They are the givers and the takers. The takers they eat better, the givers they sleep better.

00:18:22--> 00:18:39

Oh my son, there are two types of people in the world. They are those that give and they are those that take by Allah I have seen with my eyes in my travels. People who have a greater ecstasy in giving than the general public have been receiving.

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

They are those individuals may Allah make us amongst them.

00:18:44--> 00:19:41

If there is a quality that is loved by Alliance generosity, Imam Shafi said, What in COSATU? Are you buka Phil Baraka was sir Raka acuna, Lana repo, the scepter bizarre, he couldn't do it when you got the hip. If you regret lament, you're wrong, and you want to expedite your spiritual growth. Your safest Avenue is generosity. That's a guaranteed Avenue spend and spend, it would camouflage conceal your wrong and expedite your growth in the court of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Sahaba were very, very possessive. When it came to time there was a structured time table by and launch today we don't have a timetable in our life, which is a recipe for disaster. A believer has to have an active

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

timetable, and he cannot slip out of this timetable for him to be productive in this world. And in Arthur, the door I recited before you is one of the teachings of Habib sallallahu Sallam Allahumma in Urdu beaker Minh Shatta Wale Umbra Allah I asked I divine protection

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

From my mat has been dis organized nowadays we have organized chaos

00:20:06--> 00:20:46

from my mat has been dis organized. A believer has to be systematic. The infidels of Makkah in the 18 jers. In surah, minnow along highlights many of the evil traits. They did this they did this they did this year. And Allah says there were three things which was an impediment, a hurdle and an obstacle to the growth. And if we look at this carefully microscopically, I'm afraid we are guilty of all three of them most kabiri in Ibiza Milan tongzhou Road, just half an hour. The beauty of the Quran May Allah give us the love to connect with the Quran

00:20:47--> 00:20:52

must be in a be he is Samia one June.

00:20:53--> 00:21:42

Allah said three things kept these infidels away from truth. Number one, they were arrogant about it. Mr. kabiri. In a be he they were arrogant about it. They were haughty and proud. Now the scholars of the seed tell us that in the text of this ayah, the he there is no merger. In other words, previously in the ayah. There's nothing being discussed, to which Allah is referring. But there is consensus of the scholars of the year. It refers to the Kaaba, and the reason why it has not been preceded by any mention, because the link and the attachment and the Association and the affiliation, and the affinity that they had with the GABA was known regarding the person, he is

00:21:42--> 00:22:19

always with him. So what who or who else? So you use a vague, unclear reference. You don't explicitly mention it, you implicitly hinted. But everybody knows precisely who you're talking about. And that's exactly the tone of this ayah. They very proud about it. And what's the reference they were very proud about the fact that they were the custodians of the Kaaba. And they felt an A about this year, they felt arrogant about this. And may Allah save us from pride and arrogance. You know, in English, they say, and this really hits me, because it's so profound.

00:22:20--> 00:22:25

A mistake which makes you humble is better than a virtue which makes you arrogant.

00:22:27--> 00:23:07

A mistake which makes you humble. We're not condoning the mistake. Let me qualify my statements. We're not condoning the wrong, but it makes you humble. There is an incident in Babylon algebra in Babylon. In Tempelhof a name regarding one of the pious predecessors, he said, a bita Emma will also be Hannah deema. If I spent the night sleeping, and I don't engage in nocturnal prayer, and we're not talking about fudger prayer, we're talking of optional prayer. And I get up in the morning reap regretting this, this is more dear to me than spend the entire night in about it and get up conceited and elated and inflated that I'm better than others.

00:23:08--> 00:23:33

It's such a sensitive thing my brothers, it's so sensitive. I always say and I'll repeat this if there's three things, which I have advocated in all my talks, and if anybody can, can ever have any memory of me Let it be these three things. One is give charity daily. Number two, value your parents lovingly and sincerely, whether alive or diseased. And number three don't judge any person.

00:23:35--> 00:23:50

I live by this and I die by this year, give charity daily value your parents because that is the closest gateway to gender. Your mom is paradise Your dad is the door to paradise. And number three, don't be judgmental on any person.

00:23:52--> 00:24:18

Abhi Tana Emma will also be Hannah deema. If I spent the entire night sleeping and I get up all men I regret it's better than spending the night in Nevada and getting up with a condescending eye on others. Well, you wasted your night What good is there in what you did? So Allah said three things kept them away from truth. They were arrogant on their virtuous actions.

00:24:21--> 00:24:35

So it was the day of Juma Satan idea of the Alona was at the member, Satan Abbas or the Alon was there and a third Sahabi and they started enumerating their own accolades above the line who said

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

that, well, I have the privilege that I am the custodian of the Kaaba and I give water to the pilgrims. And somebody else said, Well, I have this access to the Kaaba and Satan earlier the Alanna said, I don't really identify with what you people are saying all I know is I accepted Islam. I do what I was told to do. And I have participated in campaigns with the messenger sallallahu wasallam.

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

There's a bit of an argument and a back and forward altercation regarding which action is more superior than the other said now Homer came close he said leave this it's drama time after Juma will ask the messengers a lot he was alone and that was the privileged Sahaba head and then they'll be over last a lot in some game and the Juma Salah was performed, and in the verses were revealed, a dial tone setagaya talha jiwani Martel masjidul harami common Amana Billa he will Yeoman theory Raja duffys happy Lila la buena in de la laguna young coma body mean alladhina amanu 100 euro watch on how to be unworldly himo and fusi him feasibility of Bermuda Rajasthan in de la, what a woman for

00:25:47--> 00:26:31

his own, have you equated? Have you equated giving water to the pilgrims and establishing the sacred house to the young man who accepted him on and spent his health and wealth in participating in the campaigns with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. They cannot be equally as the winner in the law the action of Elisa passes the actions of others. The point that I'm saying he is the co founder of MacArthur three things they were arrogant on what they did. We do little we speak about it and we destroy what we have. May Allah protect us? May Allah grant us humanity I often say brothers and I'll say it again. Do one thing in your life and May Allah give it to me the ability into you. So

00:26:31--> 00:26:53

secret that you don't whisper it to your partner. You don't because when we do some good action, little while required after a little while there is this itch within us I need to tell my wife, I need to inform this one here. I need to tell this person here. We won't keep anyone abreast with all our wrongs. But we very quick you know what in case somebody comes in, give you a receipt just accepted. It's some donation I gave a few years ago.

00:26:55--> 00:27:45

It's some donation A few years ago, do one action secretly in the dead of night, when nobody knows it, nothing, nothing, nothing, just that absolute action. Hopefully that would secure our abode on the day of the AMA. So that was the first evil trade Mr. kabiri. They were proud on the association to the Kaaba. The second thing Allah said some Iran some Iran in Arabic summarize literally means a moonlit night. And look at the teachings of the prophets a lot isn't. So it was customary amongst the Arabs. When it was moonlit night they would sit outside and they would just chit chat, they would just sit in discuss, and they would just kill time. Last year I was in Sydney for a program.

00:27:46--> 00:28:22

And then after the program that took us out to eat and after we ate we it was in the CBD. So we were passing through town. And we passed by this place which has become a common thing nowadays where people are sitting congregating at a cafe and having shisha and indulgent and I said hundreds of Muslim youth you could see from the features and the appearance. And Allah be my witness the pain that gripped my heart. I guess it's happening everywhere, but I never had the exposure to it. Because often in our own homes, environments that those late hours you're not outside, but when you're traveling the dynamics and the demographics change location, travel, airport, hotel, etc. And

00:28:22--> 00:28:37

you when you get exposure to a thing the pain is different when you have it and you get exposure. When say now Moosa mom was at Mount and he heard that his nation was worshipping the calf. It enraged him. But when he came there and he literally seen it, well Allah Ha.

00:28:38--> 00:28:51

He drew in a put the Torah down, he grabbed his brother Harun, and he dragged him and he said, Karen, what's this all happening in my absence? And how don't pacify him and said relax my brother Kashi to Interpol for October 2011

00:28:52--> 00:29:02

I was trying to stop them but they wouldn't they wouldn't you know abandon abandon it and I feel that perhaps it results in dividing Bani Israel which I chose not to do.

00:29:03--> 00:29:48

So when you see it, the pain is much more you receive a call at home you know, this is what's happening at the office come home. So one is you disturbed you alarmed you appalled by the news. When you get home and you see it's a different thing altogether the pain so to see the youth killing time, burning money destroying resources, unfortunately is the most painful it is the most painful thing to the eye. So they would set the Arabs would sit for hours and hours and just sit and talk and pastime and how often this has become the norm my brother, we have barbecue night, a Brian night social night. It's no longer we have in a woody must spend the have lunch with us spend the

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

afternoon with us spend the day with us. And then inevitably, the third thing that happens it ties up Sameera is just sitting and chit chatting. Hence the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

Some waratah delicia are looking at the words of ABS a lot he was alone. No social discussions post Alicia, no sleeping three Orisha, no social discussions post OSHA, one Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if the world can, can internalize this and can embrace this, I promise the world out there will be much more productive The next morning, people will not be so lame, lethargic and non active. But this is the sad reality that he just runs into the late hours and the morning is a lazy morning and a lazy start. And then thank god it's Friday and that's that's the way life has become. So what happens with these to sit and kill hours and hours in speed? And in that discussion

00:30:47--> 00:31:13

was the third inevitable thing. Drone? drone means they used to blurt nonsense. They used to blurt nonsense. When you sit in and you chat in and it's men alone, a woman alone. You're going to be making a botnet talking Zika what what's the inevitable discussions? I don't need to spell it out. I don't need to spell it out. Right The Manasa t we're going with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in to book

00:31:15--> 00:31:22

some of them decline some participated some made lame excuses, or Jarl more zero nominal.

00:31:23--> 00:31:33

zanella waka de la de naka de Boulogne. hawara sola. So you sleep levena cafaro min nomada Boone any

00:31:34--> 00:32:19

zerona minella Rob some of the villages they came to make excuses what cardella de naka de la and those who deny the LA days they didn't even bother to come and extend an apology not to say that the Mona 15 who extended apologies were genuine because they came and said no we cannot join you but really we wanted to participate. And Allah said that if they really wanted to participate and doula who are done what I can carry her long home behind her home, if they really wanted to do the act, they would have started some preparation but tell them it's not like they didn't participate a lot despise their participation so Allah denying them participation

00:32:20--> 00:32:34

when I can carry alone beyond the womb when I'm gonna fit in used to sit in the gathering and then they say okay, well your argument is the profits as I'm seeing no okay sneak sneak summon sort of food and they would leave. Allah said you didn't leave we got rid of you.

00:32:35--> 00:33:05

You didn't leave we got rid of you. Yet the soluna mean commonly one other they will take shelter from the backs of each other's and sneak out sort of fun loku boom, Allah diverted the heart away, Allah block the heart Allah see you the heart, Allah but that may Allah protect us. There are some actions when you perpetrated apart from the sin. It's the cause of hypocrisy enter in your heart and blocking virtue for the rest of your life.

00:33:06--> 00:33:18

Sometimes when the sun is disrespectful to his parent, one is that wrong, but that disrespect becomes an impediment for future growth and prosperity for one nifa

00:33:20--> 00:33:42

for our club, one nifa ficolo beam, then we allowed hypocrisy to permeate the hearts Illa Yomi altona who told that they they need a lot. So that Mr. Right under this idea, there are some evil actions, that the benefits or the harm of the evil is not limited to that advice, but it goes way beyond it goes way beyond

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

anyway.

00:33:51--> 00:34:04

Someone after 18 joined and as they were going, they started talking. So while they were started talking visa lie, some said that Allah will give us victory in the book. So this Manasa Tino started talking now you have in the social discussion and you chit chat in

00:34:05--> 00:34:48

this profit now also Billa in a mockery in a condescending is dreaming is dreaming that he's going to conquer you know, the book and he's gonna return victorious. One remark second remark, some of these Sahaba now the reference of these people, they're quite obese, their bellies are protruding they quite big in size, making these nasty comments and remarks about the features and the disposition and the you know, structures etc. Once the hubby heard this, he intercepted he said only viola, these people are making remarks like this. Yeah, they do dreaming you fantasizing. And then they're mocking it This one's body and that one's image.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

You know, one day nobody says I'll come back to this incident one day, nobody civilized until up to lead number zero to climb on a tree and just break off a twig as a miswak

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

As the lead nurse roadworthy Alana was climbing on and he got on and he was he was plucking off the twig, his shin got exposed of his foot. Now his foot was very lean and very frail. So some people, inadvertently unintentionally they just had a bit of a chuckle.

00:35:20--> 00:35:27

So nobody says Kim said what's the laughter about? They said no min potty Sati we seen his legs are so thin.

00:35:29--> 00:35:50

Nobody sallallahu wasallam said well let the Neff see be a de I swear by a lion does not authentic hadith. I swear by airlines control is my life. The leg of Abdullah might be thin, weak and frail. But this will have more muscle clout and weight on the scale of good deeds on the day of the AMA the amount of hoods

00:35:54--> 00:36:37

and on the other hand, you could be pumping iron my brother and you could be you know what burning calories and you could have all your packs together. And you could have the biceps but on the day of Tiamat it carries no weight, no strength, like allama Shapira osmani writes and I marvel at this analogy of ease. He says the growth that comes to your wealth through haraam is like obesity setting into your wealth. That is not healthy expansion. That is obesity, that's fatness in your wealth. So the money a person is eating his burgers and fries and indulging and he's really growing and you say this guy must be strong. No, no, no, no, no, no, that expansion is more of a liability than an acid,

00:36:37--> 00:36:42

leave alone helping anyone else he cannot carry himself he's a risk to himself.

00:36:43--> 00:37:22

So when your money is growing through her arm, that's not healthy expansion. That's obesity expanding through the naked eye through the naive eye through the foolish eye. You would say that's a healthy man. That's a huge man that's a big man. But hang on is more susceptible more vulnerable to this medical condition to that medical condition. Why? Because until the belly doesn't turn down and he doesn't get into into shape, he's he's exposed to 1000 challenges. So anyway, they made these remarks. It was intercepted It was then passed and nobody says I'm on every overload is what they say. Let me say something. Are you people sitting and gossiping and talking these type of things? I

00:37:22--> 00:37:33

mean, let's look at some of our chat groups and our social discussions. You cannot believe how much time of the oma is burning away and the kind of things we talk in on it.

00:37:35--> 00:37:41

While are inside the home layer kulana in namaqua Nana whoa Anna lab poll.

00:37:43--> 00:38:30

De he was so late. He couldn't understand do and when you quiz them and you engage them that lesson. Are you folks talking this now? Just joking, man. We're just kidding. We're just kidding. We were just in Yuma man, just having a bit of lightheartedness. So Allah says this and let me sound A word of caution sometimes in our jokes, we cross the line we trust we trans you know, we trespass the boundaries. Alliance the question poll, a belay what is it what Assouline contestants do so you mock you joke you laugh You scoff at a lot at these Nabhi often people make these jokes those are serious things but others when we joke what a lion is never even allow us given our brains and animal a

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

salami so lucky doesn't have a mother in law.

00:38:34--> 00:38:44

Are those the things you you joke about? Are those things you you speak about called Abella? He was he was all he? Do. They mock a lot in his navy and his science lab.

00:38:45--> 00:38:48

Don't come and give us your lame excuses. But if

00:38:49--> 00:38:52

you have uttered a statement of

00:38:54--> 00:39:39

a call from either Harry Imani calm, they claim to be believers they want to fit your disbelief has become exposed after your claim of a man in a foreign power effective minicom known as the Buddha, if it can be unknown can oh my god mean those who repent will be pardoned, those who persist will not be pardoned. So the point i'm saying is we got to take care of our time. And what did the Quran say three things that destroyed them number one arrogance on what they do in number two, having social discussions. I had heard from one of my teachers regarding his stat, that he had a cutoff time of 10pm. He said he was so diligent, so religious, so meticulous, that at one time there was a

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

joke taking place in which great great international luminaries were present. But at that time, 10 o'clock when the clock struck, stood up, excused himself and went to bed because next day, I got to stand up and I got to be talking to my Creator. You know, this incident of Satan on Amara, the alano, during when Alexandria was conquered.

00:40:00--> 00:40:39

While we have been what age was the envoy? So he came into Medina and he was looking for safe now Marie said he's mad, they said now more would be resting. I'll meet with him later. So said now former slave girl observed him and said, If you come back from Alexandria, correct. You have news about the battle. Absolutely. Come to Amarna. No, I guess it's midday rest in time. I'll come later said no, no Omar will insist that you must come now are the alano. So he was brought in. And Omar was informed that when he came, he thought probably it wasn't appropriate. So he was going to stall it. So Amara, the alano then took him to task for this and he said you came in you know, we

00:40:39--> 00:41:08

anticipating the news. Why didn't you come straight and tell it to me? So he said to Omar, Omar, I thought it's midday and you'd be resting and it's not appropriate to bother you at this time. And what did say it now I'm gonna say my brother, what do you say now Omar Delano say? He said Oh, more out we are in nim de na hora de Yato Rania. We're in nim to lay the yard to Neff C for K for nome de nada de in

00:41:10--> 00:41:29

Omaha we are if I sleep by day, when will I discharge the obligation of the creation? And if I sleep by night when when I converse with my Allah, you find me time between these two duties, and I'll put my head on the pillow.

00:41:31--> 00:42:11

Mmm, Imam nawawi, the great Shafilea scholar said Maota to jumpy Allah, Pharaoh Rashi. For two years, I didn't consciously go to sleep. I just was moving on with you know, while sitting in I was overwhelmed by sleep a few hours and I slept away while studying. I slept. I didn't consciously sleep for two years. Like you would say, you know what, during busy season in December, I didn't have a meal for the last 10 days. Well, are you living dead? No, what I mean is a bite in a sandwich, taking a sip, just munching on something and moving on. I didn't sit down and have a meal. You're on the run and you're traveling for the last eight days. I didn't see what's the shower? Mmm,

00:42:11--> 00:42:24

no, he says for two years I didn't sleep is when I was overpowered and overwhelmed. That was about it. This was making time meaningful. This was the time coming out in maximum dividends.

00:42:26--> 00:42:32

So these were the three things that held the infidels of Mocambo stuck between some Iran tanjirou

00:42:34--> 00:43:16

Allah speaks about say either nada Buddha, Allah is Salam. And again, I emphasize the same point, the need of time, the need of discipline, the need of structure, that when it is this time, this is how it is. And we have to create this the schedule, which we need to be diligent about. Let me share with you another idea in this regard as well. A lot of objects in the Quran, and frowns on one of the strange practices of the pagans, the pagan Arab, they had some very peculiar practices. it's laughable when we look at it in their context, but when we look at it, and our context is not laughable, you know, that's the nature of things. When you talk of somebody else doing it, it's a

00:43:16--> 00:43:34

joke. But when somebody else talks about you, it's not such a joke. It's offensive of data to Earth money has written that once I wrote an article against backbiting. So one professor wrote to me, and he said, If backbiting is so evil, then well, there's no pleasure left in life because what's so exciting in a social gathering other than backbiting?

00:43:36--> 00:44:07

So he wrote me a straight article, and he said, I mean, I beg to differ with you. If backbiting is so evil, then really, you've taken out the essence of life. What do we do on a social get together besides gossip? So he said, no problem. That's fine. I take your point. And for a moment, I identify with your logic said now Moosa told the magicians who Alcoa and tumble pool challenge me throw what you need to throw the automa say he was an advocate in them to challenge they weren't going to do it. So he said, Go for it. Go for it.

00:44:09--> 00:44:42

So he said, Listen, we telling you this weekend, we're having a get together. And we're going to be gossiping about you. You're not invited? Like No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, please don't say that. Don't say that. Now, suddenly, it has changed. The whole psychology the whole approach, the whole attitude has changed. Why? Because you will be the point of discussion. And if only we can analyze everything through that same eye, that if it's bad for me, it must be bad for others. If it's good for me, it must be good for others, then I promise you we won't have this disparity and discrepancy in society. May Allah grant us that understanding through which we look at things.

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

So anyway, I was saying to the Guardian, Cigna de la Salatu was Salam. The need of creating structure, discipline, and measure in everything that we do. So the Arabs had this different peculiar practices, one of the peculiar practices

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

Work,

00:45:01--> 00:45:41

that for months the Quran declares as sacred. That's an established fact in the Quran from the time Allah created the heavens and the earth mean ha arbeiten home for our sacred right. In those months you wouldn't engage in battle etc. the sanctity of these months Fela tabula morphine and forsaken circle, Bill mercy, don't oppress yourself in these months and the months of the year by committee and wrong. So look at the irony of their logic. And this is how we temper today with things. So amongst those months were rejected. And this is what the scholars have to say they alternation used to more often happened with the month of Rajab. So if they seen the need of battle during the month

00:45:41--> 00:45:51

of Roger, then the leader of a tribe will stand up and say, listen, we are in Roger, but there's been a crisis for better so for this year, we just going to shuffle the month we delayed Roger.

00:45:53--> 00:45:56

we fast forward in the next month, and we just put in this month on all

00:45:57--> 00:46:14

the clothes and I'm busy this week. So we're going to be having tomorrow, Friday on Sunday and Sunday we'll just bring it a little forward. So this was the kind of thing they used to do where they used to rotate months in nomina see who's the are the Nazi in Arabic needs to delay that is why you call credit also Nessie

00:46:15--> 00:46:58

satana soleimani salaam stick Allah says means that it is an SME Allah through which you move dirt and you clear out the way NASA to move things in a manner see Oh, postponement in nomina See, Hosea 20 filco fray, your bolo begun levena cafaro. You Hello nahama. Well, you Henry Mona, who am I one year it's sacred one year it's not sacred. So this was one of the peculiar practices. Another peculiar practice and that brings me to the aspect of preservation of time is when they used to harvest crops, then they had this very distorted distribution. They used to say this crops belongs to Allah, so they would help the wayfarer, they would help the widow they would help the orphan and

00:46:58--> 00:47:29

these crops here belongs to our gods and our diabetes. So they would give it to the worshipers in the church in the place of worship, and they would also offer it as sacrifice to the diabetes. This is what the Quran speaks about, that when they used to harvest this is how they used to rotate and they used to distribute, which itself was a crime because everything belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala for call ohada Leilani visa amin wadala Shoraka Inna pharmacann Alicia rakai him Allah, Allah illallah wa Malecon La La

00:47:30--> 00:48:08

Ilaha Shoraka him but it gets even more ugly and more more strange that unless it's sometimes when they used to harvest the crops and the crops and the harvest and the fruit and the produce were all gathered in one place so the share of allow went in their inverted commas because everything belongs to Allah but what they had allotted as the share of Allah God mix with the share of the gods they used to say it's fine man, Allah don't really need allies easygoing allies independent allies self sufficient so if we cut short here, there's no implications.

00:48:09--> 00:48:52

But if the scenario was reversed, and the share of the gods got mixed with the share of Allah, they were very quick to separate it. No, no, no, no, no, a policeman does Africa load is gonna come this idea. Yeah, please. 50 grams. Can you just push it this idea that you know, we balanced the heck out? saw Mr. comun, evil indeed, with the decisions they made of Tisha visa parameter law, right. So amazingly, he says, we read this is and we move on. We chuckle we laugh, we mock, we snap and we move on. But let's direct the focus to us we are no different. So you we set a timetable for myself in the morning. I'm going to read so much till the night before I retire to bed. I go read my acid

00:48:52--> 00:49:12

metabolic in the morning, I got to go to the gym. I got to do this half an hour, I got to update myself with the news bulletins. Then I got to see the score. Then I had visitors coming home and my whole pattern got disrupted who bears the brunt of the disruption. That's my job mean go does my news bulletin go? Or does my yacine and my tabara go?

00:49:14--> 00:49:53

And if perchance it took strain the next day I'm in the gym two hours more why last? Yesterday I lost out but yesterday you didn't read a live scan but the intention was there brother. The intention was that you were to look at an intention Brother, you don't understand it. You don't understand. You can ask Allah Allah will verify this. Am I right? One? Correct. Once the intention was there, right visit escape visit is the act of ibaadat. Also, if you look at it, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, amazing, phenomenal likes now we're running on 10 different opinions and vernix and we run in with a very broad aspect of things. So we found we moan we groan we laugh we scoff at the pagan Arab

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

in his deviation, that how he was quick to separate but when it comes to us and our structure

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

If we fall short in our commitment that daily I'm going to do this and we fall short. Allah subhanho wa Taala has a very good retirement package. I always say, nobody gives you a better retirement package than Allah is our murrayville Abdo osafo kuchibhotla. Who Miss Luma Khanna Yamato sahand multiman. Right, all these packages when it's time for them to pay out, there's so many claws. There's so many conditions. There's so much red tape, there's bureaucracy, there's protocol, there's so much Allah says when a servant becomes ill or he embarks on a journey we record for him every action he performed while he was alien healthy are we capture for him every action he did while he

00:50:39--> 00:50:57

was at home? When you're in Germany, and now the the travel doesn't warrant doesn't allow for it immediately, whatever you did, but look at us how we unfortunately lose the plot. So one, two incidents and we try to close the incident of sadhana Allah His Salatu was Salam.

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

Allah has blessed him with his kingdom and abroad he was the first nebby who was the king as well. And what did Allah give him advice in the Quran? We asked for advice. Quick advice. simple, basic, straightforward. What did Allah say Jada will do in general Naka Holly fatten fill up vacuum bandana Sybil. Ha

00:51:22--> 00:51:27

ha ha that when you execute your verdict, don't follow your base desire.

00:51:29--> 00:51:35

Today, unfortunately, we've lost that it's my ego what they say drop the E and you will go.

00:51:37--> 00:51:47

But as long as you hold on to that ego, you don't move. Just a quick thought in the 17 Jews in Surah ambia. There's a detailed incident regarding two people.

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

One was a shepherd and one had a farm.

00:51:52--> 00:52:06

The shepherd had left his flock, so the flock pastured into the adjacent farm and destroyed the crops. Natasha in Arabic means a flock of sheep without a shepherd and simplify the logic a class of students without the teacher

00:52:07--> 00:52:18

you can imagine the havoc that's going to happen there nowadays even what the teacher you don't have to say nowadays, you know, what's it before it's silence? You know what? children are learning not like silence, some students are sleeping, respect them.

00:52:19--> 00:53:03

As classroom manners now, please, please silence respect this. There are some students that are sleeping please just just respect them. That's that's classroom mannerism. Now, the demographics have changed. We're dealing with a very, very different situation today, may Allah guide and protect our youth, really, we are in in very, very trying times. Anyway, long story short, so the shepherd, he his flock had destroyed the farm adjacent farm. The case was presented to doubt later on, he analyzed the entire situation. And when he did the maths and the calculation, the harm that was caused by the flock of sheep to the adjacent farm, balanced out to the value of the flock of sheep.

00:53:04--> 00:53:33

So the harm that was done to the adjacent farmers crops, these entire crops and harvests was destroyed the value the harm that he incurred was in proportion to the value of the sheep. So he said to the shepherd, listen, it's your negligence if a dog is roaming and you don't have a leash and you bite someone, you're gonna hold the owner responsible. So you're going to be liable and responsible because you will not taking care of your flock. So you're gonna have to take your flock and you're gonna have to give it over to this man because he has incurred loss and harm

00:53:35--> 00:53:41

so they said okay, that's the verdict and they come out. But these people were driven by truth not driven by egos.

00:53:43--> 00:53:49

dilemmas Hollywood said, obey the truth. Don't focus on who said it, focus on what has been said.

00:53:51--> 00:54:02

Don't focus on who said, We are such even if it is a flawed decision, but if it comes from my beloved we embrace it and even if it's the Absolute Truth, but if it comes from my fault, we deny it.

00:54:04--> 00:54:28

So they exit from the court of La Solomon as they walk in past the person, a man and a salon, the narration of Jolene in the footnote, he was 13 years of age. So he's like you guys are from my dad. Yeah, correct. What happened? No, we had this issue. Okay. What was my dad's verdict? Yeah, your dad basically pronounce a verdict due to my negligence. I gotta pass my flock over. Okay, perfect. That's fine. Low will lead to Mr. Kumar. lacava. Toma, who will fairytale

00:54:29--> 00:54:46

I'm just saying if I was made to look into this case and pronounce a verdicchio. My view would be respectfully fairly different from that of my venerable dead. I would look at an option that could minimize the harm that was caused to the shepherd because this way he's lost toto.

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

This man has lost his crops now. But in the years to come, you can irrigate and farm and plow and get his crops and he's got a whole flock of sheep. So the message was taken back to say nada salam, Salam salmon,

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

The sun biblical obovata you will know Booyah. Oh my son through the medium of prophethood and father would come here I want to talk to you.

00:55:09--> 00:55:48

You know, sometimes you tell us a living You don't know anything, man. And after a little while you realize you don't know it, you know? But now who's gonna call the lady back now? You know. Now why don't you tell your son to do? I'm going now you first tell him you know you boys you think and sometimes these youngsters also they push their luck too much we need to strike the balance. Some youth if they he basically explained to his father a device or a gadget. He's like I'm one notch above my dad. I'm one notch you bond into technology, so you abreast with it. That doesn't give you an upper hand over your father. If you need to explain to him you do it with absolute respect.

00:55:48--> 00:56:35

Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is known as the father of prophets. His father is known as the father of polytheist Ibrahim Ali Salam is inviting his father to mono theism. He's one of the noblest of Atlas creation, the father being a sinful individual and a polytheist. The tone of the father is harsh and obstinate. The tone of Ibrahim is polite and gentle. But the Khadija Annie minella mala Mia Tikka pepperoni, tikka syrup, and so we are, yeah, Betty la booty shaytaan you're in need of a cerca de bon Mina, oh, my beloved dead, you my father. But listen, what you're doing is not really that that's not how you do things that aren't just worried if you're going to carry on like this. Alice

00:56:35--> 00:56:45

Azov is going to come. I have a flash of a young man who once came to me and he cried in my house, and I won't forget that. He said, you know, Allah changed my life and my whole vision.

00:56:46--> 00:57:20

And I came out in the path of Allah. And I had a complete reformation to myself, my life changed. I went out, change brought modesty into my life in my house. And the first thing I realized that my dad is dealing in interest. And I said, Listen, this is not compatible, because now my outlook of life has changed. So I said my father down and I said, Dad, you know what, this is a government go from your back off. The only investment is for you. There's only empires for you. What do you mean, we can run it like this? Okay, realize is not accepting time pass. I came back to him. I said, Listen, dead. This is bothering me. It's eating me up. No, no, you mad man. This is for my

00:57:20--> 00:57:20

grandchildren.

00:57:21--> 00:57:57

It bothered me again. After a few days, I came back I said, Dad, listen, I'm going to have to tell you, I want to relinquish my rights. And I want to exit the family business. And I admire this young man, and I will become an employee in the business. So I'm not liable for the wrongs of the business because I'm no longer a partner and I'm no longer an owner. An employee is not liable for the wrongs. So I am relinquishing whatever you want to give me and this is not a proposal. This is respectfully I am informing you because I cannot be eating haram and nourishing my children with Haram. And he cried and he said I couldn't believe that I was in that same condition. I was in that

00:57:57--> 00:58:17

same condition and sometimes brothers, we need little bit patience. Sometimes we need a little bit patience. When we are in, caught up in sin and vise those around us have patience with us. And we come out of it and when we come out of it, we lack the maturity to display the patience that was displayed with us for us to come out of our own

00:58:18--> 00:58:31

gadalla kokoon two min Tableau summon Allahu Allah a comfortable Yeah, no. There's one Tafseer of this if this was your condition before my Sahaba this was your condition or before my Sahaba

00:58:32--> 00:59:07

there was a youngster who was having some issues in the marriage Allah gave him he died, he changed his wife wasn't changing so positively. So they came home. I said to him say brother, Allah gave you he died. That's excellent. When you got married to your wife, you consciously knew the woman you were reading Absolutely. Right Allah made it possible for you to make the drastic change which is awesome, brilliant. And you know, rewarding. She hasn't yet taken the bold step. It's not that she fell back on her promise. This is how you wedded her. This is you consciously married her like this year you went for new to you know you went for a menu now you want the car to be automatic.

00:59:08--> 00:59:49

I'm just using the loose phrase here. So you need patience, you need tolerance, you need forbearance, and sometimes unfortunately, we lose it Subhan Allah look at say eterna de la Salam. He calls his son on my son Tell me what's the story that I would have told the shepherd that he takes his flock and he gives it to the farmer not permanently momentarily interferer billable hour Sophie how one last layer that you can draw you know milk the goats take the most you can use the further you can use the skin, anything that is born now what procreation you can have, in the interim as the shepherd you work on the fields now plow irrigate plan. When you bring the crops back to where it

00:59:49--> 00:59:53

was. Then you return his farm to him and he returns your flock to you.

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

In this way we minimize and this man's got something to keep him going for the moment and lt

01:00:00--> 01:00:47

He gets his phone back up to alpha omaka at Abuja Oh my son, I salute what you say, oh my son, I salute what you say. I retract I revoke for fun Hannah Suleiman for fun Hannah Suleiman Noah Cullen, Tina hoekman Ma, Allah says we, we inspired the correct Vedic on the bosom of Solomon le Salaam, but respectively father and son were blessed with with great knowledge when the Buddha was with a man or a llama We bless them and endow them both with knowledge. So coming back to the point here and I want to mention this and round up on the aspect of again of structure, talking of time in between we flavoring it with some other things, but the key focus is how we need to have a timetable and active

01:00:47--> 01:01:04

timetable that's it this is the time my sleep This is the time my time for my Dean I want evening Abdullah describing the Sahaba said yo Jai Luna kanaya Luna don't Yama photo la sera de him one aluna dunya

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

una de la foto de Antonia calm, big difference between us and the Sahaba they channel the key resources to the preservation of Arthur and if there was an overflow, they invested it in this world you people channel everything you as in US channel everything in this world and if anything remains which is unlikely then it gets directed to us. So our core and key investment portfolio is this world and if there is little extra time on Sundays or because the shorts got to be close to them probably will have a bigger attendance because why our key essence and our key investments is in the things of this world while sahabas logic was the direct opposite was the direct opposite

01:01:49--> 01:02:00

So anyway, loudly Salam just just reflect over this brothers. He used to consciously routinely camouflage himself and go amongst the people and then ask them brother You know that would

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

say he would disguise himself people heard about the name but often you don't know this is the person himself so yeah, I know that What's your opinion? Oh, is a good man is a prophet is the is the ruler is awesome person. Lovely, lovely. What's your opinion? Completely camouflage disguised? And he wanted to know this is also mentioned about Imam Malik Emma Malik used to be very particular about the perceptions of people, not perceptions of people like we have it. All functions got to be elaborate, because what will people say? You bet in favor to a janazah? Or you seen off a girl? a bride? What would people say? What would people say this has eaten up our society the other day on

01:02:37--> 01:03:18

the radio dimension something how many a marriages are suffering a blow and they are on the verge of being dissolved and probably in in reality, it's been dissolved. But you just supposedly together because society must know the marriage broke. I mean, what a foolish way of living life. The Quran says keep your spouse with respect to release it with dignity. But if it's not happening, and you have to call it a day, you have to dissolve it with respect, but purely precisely exclusively, because of the norms of society, the standards of society. It's a taboo in society. It's a no go in society. It's a stigma in society because of that you're hanging on. So why hang on into something

01:03:18--> 01:03:44

because of perception and notion. So not on that note of perception and notion, but rather on the note that how I can better myself. Someone came to Hakeem Omar Rahim, Allah, the great intellectual giant, and said, I must be honest and candid. I've been backbiting about you, Will you forgive me? He said, I'll forgive you provided you disclose what you were backbiting. Because as much as it's a sin for you to backbite I could be guilty of what you said. So if you don't tell me when will I reform?

01:03:46--> 01:04:12

So it's a separate thing that even if I'm guilty, it's wrong for you to discuss it? Well, you know, luckily home has settled no matter what we'll be to the one who speaks of on their face and behind their back. Some of us have the notion that we can legitimize our backbiting by pronouncing that evil on the man's face. That's not legitimizing it that's making a different wrong. No, no, no not only making it but I'll tell him on his face I'm not shy.

01:04:13--> 01:04:16

demonstrate the Quran says you are now double wicked.

01:04:18--> 01:04:27

Why are you lonely equally home as that in no man's on? Tell me so to tell a man on his face womanizer to tell him behind his back

01:04:28--> 01:04:34

so that doesn't make it right you telling the man on his face or telling him behind his back to speak evil of people is not the thing that needs to be done

01:04:38--> 01:04:58

so anyway, that was really Salam was walking long story short, and then he's Allah sends an angel in his camouflage. And now it doesn't recognize this the angel and the angel knows this is totally Salaam. And now there is sometimes Angel. Brother you no doubt Yeah, of course. I know. What's your take on doubt? That was a good man. That was a good man. But any, any setbacks? Any you know what

01:05:00--> 01:05:34

blemish any weakness? Yeah, this is one thing is drawing some funds from the National Treasury. If you could have some independent income, I guess it would just give him an edge it would just give him that much of a, you know, excellent see to his personality. He was totally justified because I believe I can draw from the National Treasury. And you can read about our history so it no longer is on the pulpit and everybody gathers in the masjid. He said, Listen, folks, I am sick. And I've been diagnosed with the condition and the physicians have prescribed honey, and there is some honey in the National Treasury. I've assembled you because I need your collective consent if I can have one

01:05:34--> 01:05:35

teaspoon honey.

01:05:37--> 01:05:38

Norman Omar, you've been too sweet now.

01:05:39--> 01:06:18

You've really been sweet. So the harmala Can you imagine that, beyond comprehension, beyond comprehension, the likes that is beyond our imagination, but when they were out to learn, so when they were told they embraced it, so when he heard that said, I appreciate it. And then he made to Allah that Allah inspire me with something that I can generate my own revenue. And that's the teachings of Islam that a person you know, generates his own income and he has his own wealth, Montana, but dunya hallowen is often an illness Allah Subhana Allah only taught to fun Allah Jerry Botha will love to Yamato to kill comedy later till bedri. Our faith was never a selfish religion.

01:06:19--> 01:06:38

The day we became selfish. That is the day we lost our Deen and our Eman. Our entire Islam revolves around a selfless nature. And as soon as we become private and personal and exclusive and selfish, we've lost the essence of our faith. Islam was all about togetherness.

01:06:39--> 01:06:45

I mean, like I mean, do you mean he's not a genuine believer who want to be alive is eating and his neighbor's belly is hungry?

01:06:47--> 01:06:56

He's not a genuine owner. Well, our food is running short line 32 I think people are eating individually. He didn't say what said what you cook in.

01:06:57--> 01:07:04

Which which pot you got? No, no, nobody's hasn't said I think you eating individually not eating together. You see the food would be adequate.

01:07:05--> 01:07:10

The food would be adequate. Then the sahabas internal taqwa is over another level.

01:07:12--> 01:07:40

The blind Sahabi doesn't want to eat with the sighted because the blind feels I will eat more than others because I cannot see the sighted doesn't want to eat with the blind. He says because the blind won't see he'll eat less I'll eat more than tripled. Sahabi doesn't want to eat in a joint get together. He says because I'll occupy more place because I'm crippled I need to stretch my leg. The April Sahabi doesn't want to pull resources and eat with a cripple. Is it because the cripple will come late by the time after food is finish?

01:07:41--> 01:07:47

A lot of diverse ladies Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Allah.

01:07:48--> 01:08:36

Allah Allah and forsaken Kudo. Min bu t con Oh, booty Arba econ. Oh, booty Omaha Tico bu T one econ. O bu T. T con. Oh boo tiama mommycon Oh boo Dr. multicom Oh, Boo. Boo alikhan Oh, boo the holiday Come on mom, electron Nefertiti Hello Sadiq Khan. There's no harm in subjecting yourself to such stringent rules. Be relaxed and easy. Look at their level of taqwa. Each one concerned of the next year we say, all right, that guy is still looking for a place by that time we wipe out brother You come late after you lose you. You snooze, you snooze, you lose. Nobody told you to come late. We gave you the address. We told you what time edition out. So voila, what a difference in life. Just

01:08:36--> 01:09:10

look at their life and look at our life. What a difference. We were never selfish the day we became selfish. Imagine if the dad passes on and the children sit down and each one enters the meeting of winding up the state with the primary desire that my brothers and my siblings must get more. Imagine walking into that meeting with that mindset. That man's soul in his grave will be tranquilize that no you're seen and Tabarak will bring it that joy

01:09:12--> 01:09:36

that man's soul in his grave will be with Brighton and will be full of joy and happiness. But you'll be walking on we don't pay our brother asked me my dad passed away please perform the Salah I performed it I made to Allah forgiving him Allah elevate him. I barely said parameter gamma Rahimi Mashallah you're making leverage draws but a man owes me big time. Okay.

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

Yeah, he owes me big time. Whoo that's man yeah. Okay brother. No problem. I just made a little gentle as well. Don't don't don't attack the man but don't attack the messenger. But there's the sun.

01:09:49--> 01:09:59

In Nellis analysis, you will have the makala analysis you will have the makalah the one who has a right he has a voice. The one who's old he has a leg to stand on.

01:10:00--> 01:10:22

Might be insensitive, it might be brutal. It might be crude, it might be harsh, but in principle you justified because you're going to die in a way where your ducks in a row your accounts are clean and cleared. Everything needs to be transparent. That's how you leave man, Berta wahoo our very own mineral cape Bree will Hulu live when you die free of three minor visa direct gender

01:10:23--> 01:11:03

direct to Jenna Mamata Mamata woodberry aminul kebari free from pride, DC and debt straight to Jenna. We're not done guilty of one we don't guilty of all three. Allah protect us, Allah protect us. So anyway, he makes it to Allah and then Allah inspires him with the skill of making armor. Now when Allah inspires him with this skill, Allah doesn't just say okay, make armor. Allah gives him certain benefits miracles what Elena Allah will Heidi, we have softened the steel for him. So for the elderly some steel was like how for us wax is simple, easy could turn it, you know, folded bended. It was totally flexible. This is how Allah subhanaw taala had made it easy for the elderly

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

salat wa salam. Then Allah goes on to say and we come to the point of a schedule, a program a schedule. I gotta have this in order.

01:11:13--> 01:11:36

Sunday is the lazy start, we become non productive, we lose our whole focus. The Prophet Saracen is made to offer the morning of the woman not the night of the oma, what you can achieve in the morning you cannot achieve in the latter part of the day, because the morning is carrying the demands of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Allahumma barik Luma TV buku de la Allahumma barik Luma t v buku de la

01:11:37--> 01:11:47

when a person goes to the masjid in the morning in the evening at the LA hula, hula, hula maga or Aha, Allah prepares, prepares and extends his hospitality.

01:11:49--> 01:11:51

That is the time that a believer is an active.

01:11:55--> 01:11:59

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says any metal savvy lot, prepare armor.

01:12:00--> 01:12:42

And yet again, we need to refute a myth. There is a myth out there that Islam is a verse to professionalism. And that's also a myth, and it's unfounded and it's not established in Islam. Islam doesn't say that because it's this word, you must just do it anyhow. And you don't have to worry How you doing things? No, no, Islam says you must be principle, do things to be thorough, do it proper, don't attach your heart to it. Don't attach your heart to it. But if you study the rule of Sangeeta Omer, he was the man who created Islamic infrastructure. He was the man who built barracks. He was the man who built bridges. He was the man who dug canals. He was the man who established an employed

01:12:42--> 01:13:21

system for Allah and her files and the name. He was the man who put up masajid he was the man who promoted active literacy at the time in the Arab there were only 16 literate people said now Omar was one of those literate people. He promoted active literacy. So read the reign of Amara, the olana you'd be amazed by how much rich contribution he made to Islamic infrastructure. And all this credit goes to say Nah, Amara Yolanda which we seldom read about. He had great he was he had a very innovative mind and a very innovative mind. So constantly trying to innovate and move things there. But there was no attachment to it. That's the key. I like doled out in a ceramic armor we thoroughly

01:13:21--> 01:13:46

do it with precision synchronize the links synchronize the links, what God did Rufus Sir serata in Arabic means to we've cut there has two meanings and that's the one that I want to speak on. One could mean synchronize. So let there be rhythm, let there be pattern. Let them not be inconsistency. Let there be pattern in it. Allah speaks about how Allah created the heavens.

01:13:47--> 01:14:07

Allah says look at the skies. For general basara corradini and Talib illogical buzzer only Allah can make that statement only Allah sometimes you look at something it's a cursory glance I was it no absolutely impressive. Look again when you look again, then you realize the flaws and the mistakes. Now you don't want to depress them. No, no, this is amazing.

01:14:09--> 01:14:26

Then you point out a mistake you point out a mistake because you don't want to you just want to keep the man happy. Allah says look at my creation not once not twice, but repeatedly. And Allah throws out a challenge. Your gaze will return defeated because my creation is flawless.

01:14:27--> 01:14:42

matara minha Mataram in Matera been tafawa Woods, matara, fie hulka Rahmani min tougher with a adamantane so you will not spot inconsistency in anything that I create.

01:14:46--> 01:14:50

If you look at just the color combination that Allah has created

01:14:53--> 01:14:57

one masala can fill out the elephant and one oh

01:14:58--> 01:14:59

look at the trees.

01:15:00--> 01:15:40

Look at the fruit. You Scobie, ma NY. Allah says it's one land it's one sun. But just look at the variety in everything. You look at the marine world. You look at the marine world as we enjoy animals in the zoo and you enjoy animal in the park. It's two different things. When you were in the Caribbean, we went to in the submarine to three times and you go deep down 150 meters deep into the water. And then you move deep into the ocean and you see the schools of fish and you see the marine world and you see the exotic fish and you see the color combination one ma Allah can fill out the machteld even alano and you only Marvel sometimes you look at these birds and you see the color you

01:15:40--> 01:15:45

look at flowers you look at kalama talking of species and diversity this color combination

01:15:46--> 01:16:32

so in everything of Allah is beauty Allah says now when you put this armor then synchronize the links synchronize that's one before the second of series work cut deal with this sir the fix a time for this doubt you asked us for a skill so that you can have financial independence. We inspired you with a skill both this year design this year make this year what I love now husana Atal Abu silicom however, lead does not consume all your time, cut the fix a time that this is the time I would be doing this and then you leave it and your other time goes into a bada. And immediately after that Allah says what am I lusardi ha, that I've given you a skill and it's there to financially liberate

01:16:32--> 01:17:12

you and make you independent, but it shouldn't be taking up the chunk of your time engaging good actions, not to say that though the listening was not engaging in any good actions, and Allah had endowed and blessed and favored them with a lot of bounties. But in the end, what did Allah subhanho wa Taala say to Tao that a Salam ala and mailloux Allah da woo the chakra, and this is something to really reflect on if we can take this home. People say you know, Allah has blessed me so much. That's good. A lot of homes you go to they have had them in the lobby. This is the mercy of Allah, I normally say to the people complete Daya. Leah balloony. a screw up for people stop midstream. Daya

01:17:12--> 01:17:55

doesn't stop there. This is the grace of Allah to test me if I'm grateful or I'm ungrateful that that is it. That's the reflection correct that you attribute this to Allah, but the bounty is to test you. So what did Allah say today? Sam, I blessed you with this structure your time have a timetable in place some time for this. It shouldn't be consuming all your time. You do this you move away. And another very important thing we learn from the Great's of the world. When it comes to time you engage in your practice daily of virtuous actions, even if it means for a moment so that you don't interrupt pattern and rhythm. Hakeem Omar Rahim Allah who was a great prolific author, who has

01:17:55--> 01:18:35

authored no less than 1000 books, and of which compiled. He says it was my Practice daily to sit and write it. Occasionally my teachers and my mentor came home I would sit him entertain him, excuse myself, pick the pen and write so that I don't have a gap of two days where I lose my focus and my pattern, I would minimize my writing but keep the action active. Keep the action active the day you close the Quran and you didn't touch it, the next day becomes more daunting. And the third day becomes more daunting. And then forget about it. The Quran becomes for the shelf and not the self as they say we lose the touch totally. So don't break the rhythm. Don't let it be in, you know, have

01:18:35--> 01:19:04

this gap and this gulf between the period What did Allah subhanaw taala say to say nada, delay Salam ala omalu Allah de vous the chakra are the people of doubt, don't verbalize gratitude, execute it, don't verbalize it executed. You say hi. I don't know how to make sure come to Allah. That's the easy way to say sometimes you know what, I don't know how to introduce this man. Because he's so famous. One is probably individual could be so famous. But on the other end you lazy to introduce.

01:19:05--> 01:19:43

And you take shelter from his fame that I don't need to introduce. I don't have to introduce because he's too famous. One is to say you know what, I don't know how to thank Allah. And it's just an excuse because you don't actively thank Allah when your allies saying the way forward to express gratitude to allies walk the talk, walk the talk. And what's the minimum you can do in walking the talk to Allah say is the minimum gratitude is you don't use the resources given to you by Allah in the disobedience of Allah. Imagine you buy yourself sign a phone, and he buys that he takes that phone and then he sends you a nasty message from the phone you bought him. Now what's going to

01:19:43--> 01:19:59

happen to you my brother, you're going to be livid. You're going to be livid. You would lose your balance composure, regardless of calculated methodical, composed individual you are I mean that's an audacity that's an absolute Audacity. That's ludicrous to do something of that nature.

01:20:00--> 01:20:42

To take my phone, my my acid that I've given you, and have the audacity to send me a nasty message. Well, that's the minimum whatever Allah has given us, we don't abuse it by using it in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah to make us amongst those people who structure our timetables, who have an active we we value and enjoy Ramadan, apart from the blessings of the month because every person enters into rhythm. Every person enters into pattern. Allah says in a salata, kanatal Mini Nikita them mu Buddha with ordained prayer with fixed times this is it come that's a drop and move on. That is why the LMS a net for us they are different times of Salah for us

01:20:42--> 01:21:20

they are different times you know this is far when it is winter, sometimes it's early, etc. But women are encouraged to offer their prayer as soon as the time sets in. Across all seasons. Women are offered an exalted and implored to offer their prayer. Because otherwise sometimes you read it in overtime they need some accrue time. It just depends how the activities of the house and the domestic chores are carried out. So if that is the environment, as soon as the time sets in, everything can just be put on hold, and we can offer our prayer. And we centered our lives around that we sleep early. We rise early. We have a timetable. We don't compromise on our timetable. We

01:21:20--> 01:22:01

will see meaning in our day we will see Baraka in our day, we will see goodness in our day, the more Russa to a yummy banana Domine Villa whorfin wala buka in voila has any and then letting you have a liquid Ababa, magenta hidden almasi ya know, la hidden dordoni It's long couplets in which the poet is lamenting the loss of time that it's just running away from me. Imam Shafi said if I summarize my entire life of studies, I can narrow it to two things your ego either you dictate to it or dictates to you either you telling yourself I'm reading Quran or then it will get you onto the paper onto a site or peruse this or it does or gossipy or just do this. That's it. It's either you receiving or

01:22:01--> 01:22:39

dictating. There's no neutral phrase, there's no neutral, either you saying I'm doing or you've been dictated to, that's one and number two, a lot to say from a doctor who attack either you on top of time or it's on top of you, either you exploiting it or it's exploiting you.
