May Allah Subhana Allah bless you, we're gonna go on and get right started in sha Allah Tada. These are the five pillars of Islam split over six days. And these are foundations that are oftentimes in terms of the depth or missing in many

00:02:21 --> 00:02:56

people's lives and many Muslims live, so we want to re explore them the greatest days of the year. So we'll begin with that inshallah. Smilla with hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who are early he was suffering he woman Wilder. We begin with praising Allah subhanaw taala will begin in the name of Allah subhanaw taala and we say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah his hand, Allah subhanho wa taala. To Him belongs all praise We ask Allah to guide us to bless us to protect us to send His peace and His blessings upon His messenger, Mohammed and all who follow Him until the end of times. I want to begin with a story

00:02:57 --> 00:03:05

of a young man who was told as he was taking his last breath, who was told to say the words La Ilaha, Illa. Allah.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:46

These words right now as you are listening to this, you can see them so many times, and you barely have to put in physical effort to La ilaha illa. Your tongue has to move your lips barely are impacted by this La ilaha illAllah. A very light but very heavy phrase. He didn't respond, but he continued to talk he could speak, he heard them. So they said to him, they said c'est la ilaha illAllah. They tried after a while he refused. They asked him a number of other things. They talked about other things as he's bleeding out, and they asked him one last time for the third time, just in case c'est la isla line he refused, he could not. And he said other things. And then he started

00:03:46 --> 00:04:29

to confess some of his major sins that no one knew about amongst his friends. Amongst his mentors, he confessed to a very grave grave grave sin. They had been committing for a number of months, and then he died in that state. Now what happened to him that he could not utter the phrase that you are uttering right now that's so easy for you, La ilaha illa Allah, what happened to this young man who's strong in his body? 2021 years old, a college student, who could not c'est la ilaha illallah wa, a phrase that seems to be so light and easy on the tongue that anyone can say it at any time as though it's guaranteed. Why is this phrase so important? What does it mean to you? What does it mean

00:04:29 --> 00:04:59

in general? And how important is it? The Shahada. This is our first session in sha Allah Tala, the shahada is recited several dozen times a day by 2 billion Muslims all around the world. And in Arabic, the shahada literally means the testimony, you're testifying to something. This is why for example, we have many people here who converted to Islam Alhamdulillah we are all the descendants of converts going back to the time of the companions, the concept of converting to Islam, embracing Islam and submitting to Allah we see La Ilaha

00:05:00 --> 00:05:44

llama we express any Nancy la isla Hello Wanda, we live upon it. And many Muslims around the world despite the fact that there are 2 billion Muslims, we say this phrase and at times we forget what it actually means at times we don't even know how valuable and precious it is how liberating it can be. This one phrase if you are to study and remind yourself of it and remind others of it can be the most liberating human experience possible. And this is why we start by saying a shadow on La ilaha illallah wa shadow anna Muhammad Rasulullah I testify I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah. And I testify bear witness that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:05:44 --> 00:06:21

sallam peace be upon him is His servant and final messenger. Today we will cover part one of this shahada we will cover the first part, I shall do Allah Allah Allah Allah is what we are covering today in sha Allah. Now if we were to start we would start by saying, as shall do hola hola. Hello. Let's break it down linguistically, I testify bear witness. You're negating first negating everything that is wrong. La Isla there is no deity worthy abortion in Lemoore except promo. So there's negation and there's affirmation here you're affirming the truth. But first you are negating everything that is wrong, all types of idols, all types of falsehoods. Why Allah Allah and Allah,

00:06:21 --> 00:07:01

what is the purpose of creation other than La ilaha illAllah. This is called the Kalima the phrase or the word. This is why the prophets were sent, they were sent with La Ilaha illa Allah this is why human beings were created with free will, with ability to decide to choose good or evil. This is why Allah subhanaw taala, the Creator of the heavens and the earth who made this world is fine, tuned designed universe, with all of its signs and it's clear ability to sustain life evident in every single human being in every human experience. Allah subhanaw taala gave us as well as lacking the ability to reason the intellect with that heart that you have the you're tested with. So that when a

00:07:01 --> 00:07:34

prophet is sent with a message that people are able to receive it because they are sincere, and those who reject it or not to May Allah subhanaw taala protect us the words La ilaha illa. Allah, if you've ever had a child, and you looked into what you were supposed to do, you know that one of the first things that happens is you're supposed to, for example, express the event in unsafe the other hand, gently, of course, in the ear of the newborn child. And so when you're carrying that child in many hospitals, they're aware that some parents have religious beliefs. So they will want to say a certain prayer certain thing. For example, here in Dearborn, Michigan, we have a handle a large

00:07:34 --> 00:08:08

Muslim community. And so when you have a child in the hospital, generally they're used to seeing this. And so one of the nurses when we had our daughter, one of the nurses said, I know you perhaps want to say a prayer said yes, absolutely. And so they understand how important this is to us. What do you say with this prayer? You start with testifying Allah subhanaw taala is greatness Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And you express as well and you enunciate a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, you're, you're saying the event to a newborn child that has no idea, no idea what it is that you're actually saying. But you're enunciating something that's so powerful. And this is a sunnah from the Prophet

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

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, when you convert to Islam, we have many converts here, whether from the last few weeks, the last few months or the last 10 years, may Allah bless you and keep your steadfast. You know, you remember how important it was to enunciate and understand law in law, not because of what people see not I don't mean in public, as we see in many massages that somebody is embracing Islam in public, this is a wonderful thing. But you know, you can say Allah, Allah and Allah and become Muslim long before anyone in the community sees you. And this is the reality of the human experience. And what else taking that experience of the newborn all the way to the end of

00:08:41 --> 00:09:22

one's life? You and I know these are the last words we want to say. This is the key to Jannah This is the good word that Allah references in the Quran is Kelly man by ye but a good word is like Shujaat and for you. It's like a good tree. A good word here like a good tree, meaning La ilaha illallah extends out with its branches. You are living upon La Ilaha illa Allah as a Muslim, and therefore there should be a lot of goodness extending out for me, benefiting people throughout the year, but as well Yeah, Illa Illa Allah like the tree when you are strong in your faith, you are rooted deep, strong, firm roots. So when there are winds and there are ideologies and there are

00:09:22 --> 00:09:59

trends and there's pressure and societal pressure, family pressure, liberalism, whatever it may be, you are strong because of the strength of your iman your roots are deep into the ground, you're connected to the truth and the reality of Allah subhanaw taala it is the greatest supplication you can say. It is Afflalo in Dec La ilaha illa. Allah, you and I live upon it and I pray to Allah we die upon it. It is a key to Jannah Prophet Musa alayhis salam Moses, like the other prophets, they were all sent to their people to teach them La Ilaha illa Allah this is the foundation of the similarity between 124,000 prophets now

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

Hola Hola. Do you know why he said Musa Ali Salam? He said, My Lord, you know an authentic hadith teach me something by which I can remember you by which I can supplicate to you and Allah Subhana Allah told him Oh Musa c'est la ilaha illa Allah by the way, brothers and sisters, you know these greatest days of the year the days of those hedger, we are supposed to increase in our acts of worship in our Tallinn, to me Takbeer. So say a lot of la ilaha illa as you are listening to this La Ilaha illa Allah, Musa alayhis salam responded, my Lord, all of the rest of the slaves see this meaning in other words, I want something special. I want something different than just La Ilaha what

00:10:34 --> 00:11:11

everyone else says I want to learn something special. Allah subhanaw taala tone c'est la ilaha illa Allah. So he said La Ilaha illa Allah I want something specific for me. And Allah subhanaw taala told him or Musa if the seven heavens and the seven Earths and what is in them other than me were placed on a scale and La Ilaha illa Allah was placed on the other side of the scale the La ilaha illallah without way, all of them meaning everything else of the creation. Brothers and sisters keep these principles in mind. When you say La la la, la la la you're thinking what to Allah is our praise, that Allah has to be worshipped alone, that to Allah belong the greatest names and

00:11:11 --> 00:11:47

attributes. That Allah's reality encompasses every experience you have with every family member with every friend with every breath that you take our entire lives and the experience of death, our every heartbeat and our very breath, the breath you are taking right now that you're using to say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, and Allah is with you, wherever you are. Well Who am aquamarina QUINTON. So you put your trust when you see La ilaha illa inhale for you and he never dies, he's always there. Allah's Mercy encompasses all things and it is close to those who do good. What ultimately was here at color shade wants to try to remind you in no rush metal la Hikari Wamena democracy need His mercy

00:11:48 --> 00:12:24

is even closer to those who do good meaning you will have more mercy and Allah subhanaw taala when you say Allah, Allah and Allah you remember he does not want you to choose disbelief, but he left a choice to you and that is your test. Whether you're a lawyer, anybody here, ALLAH SubhanA wa reminds you of the fact he will never wrong you. There is no such concept of injustice coming from Allah subhanaw taala that's not possible Allah is perfect, while our elderly model Buka Allah subhanaw taala reminds us His promises always true in our Aloha, so do not be deceived by this life. And Allah subhanaw taala remind you that his wisdom is perfect. Well, who will come will have given us

00:12:24 --> 00:13:00

the wisest of the wise brothers and sisters. law law means no one deserves to be worshipped except the law. Nothing is worthy of having the status of being a deity of being worshipped as a deed except a loss of panel data. And that requires all of us to make sacrifices to sacrifice our desires. When we say law in law, for the one the Creator Allah subhanaw taala, for there is none like him. One time I'll share with you a story. This was very inspirational for me, there was an Imam and as he was driving with a passenger with a brother, as the Imam is driving, he was saying law, law, law law, either in law, law law, in the law, there's no deity worthy of worship except the

00:13:00 --> 00:13:36

lawn. And then they got to an area where, because of the winds and the storm the day before there was a branch in the road, and this is a street, a residential street. So what did he do? He pulled over to the side, he took permission from the brother that was with him to pull over to the side. And as he's still making liquor, La ilaha illAllah. He leaves the car he removes the branch and then he gets back in continuous driving. And as I hear the story, I'm just I'm just so moved because I remember the saying of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam out the branches of Eman. Al Eman will build on WhatsApp Verona. Oberon was a tuna sure about the reality of Eman it's like a tree

00:13:36 --> 00:14:16

that has 70 branches or 6060 to 70 branches and the Prophet sallallahu he said he was talking about these branches and he says what have Lalu have polio La Ilaha illa Allah the best of these branches of Eman is La ilaha illa ma for you to say it. La ilaha illa Allah and then he said sallallahu alayhi salam Wa Edna had the lowest least of these branches, is to remove something harmful from the road, a multitude of other anesthetic to remove something from the road, something that is harmful to people and will hire Osama Tamiya Eman, higher modesty, it means a lot more than monastery or higher is a branch of iman. So I was just thinking about how this Imam May Allah Subhana Allah bless

00:14:16 --> 00:14:48

him and reward him he was engaged in dhikr as he's driving Subhan Allah Al Hamdulillah, you know, Allahu Akbar. And as he's saying, Allah in Allah repeatedly, he stops and he already fulfill that greatest branch of Iman and he sees something harmful and removes it. And it's a reminder for us to look for these branches of humanity to work towards Allah subhanaw taala is pleasure, La ilaha illa Allah, how do people know this is true? If a non Muslim were to ask you how do you know law in law in the law, it starts in the heart. It's not about you being the most intelligent person with the most degrees or any of that know put that to the side. You can have all the degrees in the world and

00:14:48 --> 00:15:00

if you are arrogance, then the evidence does not mean anything to you can have all the knowledge that you want of information. And if it's in your mind, but your heart is blocked from the truth then there is no benefit and you will reject everything that comes to me Allah

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

Protect this La Ilaha illa Allah starts as a reality with a sincere heart that your heart is in accordance with what it was born upon the spiritual heart meaning. So it was born upon what the fitrah the natural disposition that all human beings have. All human beings when they are born have a pure state. This doesn't mean Islam as a religion or a pure state of monotheism, the fitrah that knows if you leave it alone for a couple of years, it recognizes the child gets older, there is a Creator, there is a God, everything around us was created for a purpose. Every breath you take, when you study the cell, when you study DNA, you realize there is a designer there is a Creator, there's

00:15:37 --> 00:16:13

a muscle where there is the merciful, there is a purpose to all of this, the heart knows the fitrah knows in times of hardship to call upon God, and even some of the most arrogant people have confessed that in times of extreme need, they turned to God for the first time. And then they went back to what they were doing before when Allah subhanaw taala gave them a way out. This is a rational proof for the fitrah the heart knows there's a purpose to life, there is a reality of objective morality, if there's a goodness, that should be timeless and defined. And Allah subhanaw taala promised this, every prophet that was sent, they were sent will begin at with proofs. So there

00:16:13 --> 00:16:48

is no concept of blind faith. Why? Why do we need proofs? Why do we say we don't have blind faith as Muslims? Because if everyone claimed to be a prophet, if anyone sorry, could claim to be a prophet? How would you distinguish a real profit from an imposter? A prophet and a B from a Dogen? A false messenger? No, Allah sent them subhanaw taala with clear proofs, so the heart that is sincere and the mind looks at the evidence and says that's a prophet I have to accept, I will follow I will do what Allah subhanaw taala has told me to do. And these prophets are not asking for anything for themselves anything worldly. They are calling people for their own salvation, La ilaha illa. Every

00:16:48 --> 00:17:22

prophet and messenger came with a message and evidence and Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam had the final message, the final miracle, that clear evidence for any human being in the modern world today who's looking for the truth? Who wants La Ilaha Lama who wants that reality? They look at the evidence of the miraculous nature of the Quran and they realize that Illa Illa, Allah is a reality. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst the people of La La La to die upon it. When do you say it from the time you woke up today? To this present moment? If you are thinking about your children, you're thinking about maybe your parents or your spouse or you live alone, and you

00:17:22 --> 00:17:54

try to keep track, you will realize if you're learning the sooner you're learning what the Prophet salallahu Salam used to do, you realize there are many situations where you say La Ilaha illa Allah, what are some of these situations? For example, we already mentioned, when someone embraces Islam and they realize La ilaha illa. Allah, they realize this is the true religion. I want to follow the truth. They say law in law, they embrace Islam. And when a child who is raised by Muslim parents reaches an age of accountability, that age of puberty, eventually as they're learning, reading Quran, eventually they're saying law in law with more mindfulness, more consciousness. One time

00:17:54 --> 00:18:33

there was a young college student, first year in college, he said, I grew up Muslim, but I never really appreciated Islam. And I didn't understand how great it was how important it was until I went for Umrah. He said, When I went to an ombre, the experience that I had was so powerful, so overwhelming, I started to believe in La Ilaha illa Allah as the most precious thing in the universe, I felt it sincerely in my heart. And I started to say and I said it in a way that I never experienced before of sweetness of Iman and that was with one trip to Mecca and to Medina. And I ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us all and accepted Hajj and accepted the Ramadan a blessing voyage by

00:18:33 --> 00:19:05

the way for those who don't know what Hamdulillah we have a blessing voyage trip this November myself and she has magic Malmo Nov. 12 To 20 inshallah Tada with another live Institute we invite you all to join us but there are very few seats left join us and shout out I'm gonna is one of those experiences where La Ilaha becomes that powerful, powerful reality you say it in salon all the time. And so for those who want to study filth of prayer, right if you have taken the form of prayer, you know this recently or mindful Salah you say it in your childhood, you say this, you want to say this before you leave this world you say in the event that your karma, the cultural prayer, when you make

00:19:05 --> 00:19:40

will do when you finish your will there's a dua you make with La Isla and more included in it. Morning and evening. supplications you do this as well may Allah Subhan Tamika, so people of La Isla in Allah and most importantly brothers and sisters, the ninth of the hedgerows, coming up the day of alpha, that is the greatest day to make dua Greatest Day for sacrifice. You want to insha Allah Tala emphasize the greatest dua that you're supposed to say on this day to all the prophets emphasized and it is La ilaha illallah wa sallahu la sharika the whole movie called Al Hamdulillah who Allah coalition when something reminds you of Allah you say that in Allah when you go through hardship

00:19:40 --> 00:20:00

Salah in a lot if you want to ward off laziness sila you don't need Allah La ilaha illa Anta to panic and you come to me a lot me say these words and live upon them. One of the scholars in judo probably Rahim Allah He said, It means to forbid the worship of other than Allah. It means to forbid the worship of other than Allah. Think about the

00:20:00 --> 00:20:38

Once again from the time you woke up today to these to this present moment, what were the times in which you are realizing now you said la isla in the last so many times in different forms? What are what are the times in which you said it with more reflection than other times? What are the times that you forgot to say that now insha Allah Tala moving forward, you want to start seeing it more frequently and more consistently? And most importantly, what can we all do to emphasize to our families to encourage our families to start seeing La Ilaha illa Allah as a way of life may Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us and guide others through us along with me. So La Ilaha LA, I want to

00:20:38 --> 00:21:15

share something that a lot of people don't know, which is that La ilaha illallah has conditions. La ilaha illallah has showroom conditions, what does that mean show truth and conditions? The reality of la ilaha illa Allah is that it's not just a statement on the tongue. Yes, we say La ilaha illallah we want it to be something that you know, is constantly there we are not forgetful, we are living upon it, it becomes a habit in our lives. But Illa Illa Allah also has many conditions and I will go through them quickly in sha Allah Who to Allah number one for those who are writing notes, and they will come back to some of the questions that I saw here, about the long road trip and other

00:21:15 --> 00:21:57

trips in shallow data. But for now, in the LA Italia, let's emphasize what it means to say La ilaha illallah what are the conditions for it number one, knowledge. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran farlam and hula ilaha illallah in Surah to Mohammed Surah 47 A and 19 there's a command here for all of us. No fire alarm and no hula ilaha illallah know that there is none worthy of worship except Allah meaning what knowledge is necessary and this is how people are finding Islam and learning about La Ilaha illa Allah brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala testifies to this reality Shaheed Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah Subhan Allah tells us in the Quran specifically

00:21:57 --> 00:22:36

what Shaheed Allahu Anhu law in Hawaii he testifies to this reality when mela again the angels as well what will you learn to be a part human being because even the people of knowledge, we are in need of this knowledge, learning more about Islam so we can live strongly upon that era in Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala that reminds us that a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah will make the path to Jannah easy for the one who is in the path of knowledge, you're pursuing knowledge for the sake of Allah, Allah will make your pursuit of Jannah easier. So you can Alhamdulillah access in this day and age in 2023, countless Institute's universities programs classes in which you

00:22:36 --> 00:23:13

can learn the reality of la ilaha illa when it comes to Hadith when it comes to fear when it comes to Sierra and tap Sierra and everything else, that in law, and I'm happy and very proud of our many students who are here at Hamlin I see over 150 people with us live just here, and perhaps several 100 Other places and those who watch the recordings. And I just want to say this, if you are sincere in wanting to live upon that in a lot and to reinforce it, we don't have an excuse anymore. Look how we are connected through a live stream in this day and age to talk about Ilhan Omar, if you really want that knowledge it is there. Under Law we have so many students who have been pursuing the

00:23:13 --> 00:23:45

bachelor's degree and another have instituted the associate's degree as well. We have a lot of new classes that are constantly coming out. And the fact that we keep seeing the same students over and over and over in every class Ma sha Allah may Allah bless them all and reward them and new students coming in for every class, especially on site as well. May Allah bless you and reward you knowledge, knowledge will reinforce your Shahada. Number two is certainty. When you say La Ilaha illa Allah, what are you saying in terms of certainty? I'll give you an example. There is a man who converted to Islam from Christianity, when he started to study the life of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:23:45 --> 00:24:19

sallam. And then he heard this hadith that whoever bears witness that there is no true God except Allah no one worthy worship except Allah with no partners. And then Mohammed is his slave and messenger and that Raisa Jesus is his slave and messenger and that he Jesus is His Word which he communicated to Madame Alia Salaam and his spirit which he sent to her, and that Jana is true and hellfire, true, Allah will make him intragenic accepting whatever deeds he accomplished, he said, I say this with all certainty. I see this with all certainty. You know, the Prophet gave you good news Salallahu Salam, everyone who is here, and everyone who hears later, this hadith, the Prophet

00:24:19 --> 00:24:56

sallallahu alayhi salam told Abu Hodeidah, oh Abu Huraira go forth and whoever you meet, who testifies with conviction basically tell people this, whoever you meet who testifies with conviction in his heart, that there is no God worthy of worship, but Allah, I'll give that person the glad tidings of Jannah. The certainty that you have comes with knowing the truth and being sincere. And this brings us to point number three the third condition is sincerity and slip we combine to overhear sincerity loss and slit truthfulness. When you say this, you're saying it family law morally so now who didn't worship Allah sincere to him in the religion? You know what the Prophet

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

salallahu Salam said, the happiest of people on the Day of Judgment with my

00:25:00 --> 00:25:40

shefa intercession is the one who said La ilaha illallah Holly Samir Pahlavi sincerely from his heart. Go ahead, say it, think about it. Either in Allah, the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam said that Allah has prohibited the Hellfire in Allah has a woman now for the one who says la isla in the law seeking out the pleasure of Allah seeking the face of Allah in the Hadith monthly so you're looking for a loss pleasure. This brings us to the fourth condition you say Allah in a lot with love muhabba of Allah. Why? Because you know who Allah is, in short, study the names and attributes of Allah. The more you study who Allah is, the more your heart will fall in love with him. Number five

00:25:40 --> 00:26:18

is submission to Allah. So you abandon disobedience, you turn to Allah and you submit to him. What do we talk about in this in this month, the greatest time of talking about Prophet Ibrahim Ali Salam, and the last month of the year, there's a vigil. This is the last month of the Islamic calendar. We talked about sacrifice all the time. And Allah Subhana Allah tells us what an evil ILA Rob be conversely, moolah, return in repentance to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment consuming before it's the day of judgment and there's a punishment for those who reject. What does it mean for you, as a Muslim today to submit to Allah to sacrifice to Allah subhanaw taala for Allah

00:26:18 --> 00:26:54

subhanaw taala you know the story of Ayoub Alayhis Salam, he went through so many hardships, and he his hardships, his tests were physical in his health as well in his family and universality his salaam who was in the belly of the whale, and Allah subhanaw taala gave them both relief and a way out. You look at the stories of the prophets, these are not stories of entertainment, these are stories so we learn theology, reality, lessons of law, the law is law through the stories, every story of every prophet and messenger and every good person mentioned the Quran and also the evil people referenced in the Quran, is so that you and I can live better upon that in a lot. Every story

00:26:54 --> 00:27:30

in the Quran is there for you to know the reality of la ilaha illa Allah and to live upon it, and to distinguish it from everything that is false everything that is wrong, La ilaha illallah is liberation law is your light it is your salvation. By the way, the story that you Valley salaam, we have this Al Hamdulillah on our platform of faith essentials. It's like 32 classes in mini Life series, we have a number of students that I see right here. So we have faith essentially, we have this story, this class by Chef Homer, Solomon and many others. And Hannah recorded these courses. The point here is take advantage and learn the stories and learn the lessons from them. So you can

00:27:30 --> 00:28:07

be reinforced in La Ilaha illa Allah number six another condition and these are not in any particular order. And these are not exhaustive there are more is acceptance, when you say La Ilaha illa Allah that you accept this reality, you accept it in your heart, on your tongue, and you live upon it. And we have so many stories of what it means for you to say law law and what it's going to lead to in the in the next life. But everyday you stand to pray. Every day, you see that you're on the, let's say, the verge of deciding between good or evil, you have to decide to submit to Allah subhanaw taala to accept the reality of Lila law and to reject everything else. And this brings us

00:28:07 --> 00:28:46

to the seventh point, which is the seventh condition to disbelieve in all that is evil Alko probe Paul root. And in fact, it's interesting, this is a condition According to some scholars, but in reality this is found in the Quran as well. We clarify as Muslims what we believe and we also clarify what we don't believe. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us but by Ian, who's doing fine for my yoke for the poor booty while you're in the life of a semicircle mineral bottle with column for Formula One long semi urine, Arlene. So the truth has been distinguished from falsehood. So whoever disbelieves in foul words, what is called would target is everything that is wrong power words,

00:28:46 --> 00:29:19

referring to everything that is taken as an object of worship. You know, today, some people worship money, they'll do anything for money, they'll do anything. There's so embarrassing in terms of what they do on social media just to make $1 $2 $10 or $100. Some people will sell things that are prohibited on dignified, they'll take advantage of certain groups, they'll take advantage and deal with riba with interest in usury, that facilitate this evil in society. It's so embarrassing that somebody would do this knowing that this is something that is prohibited, and yet you're engaging in this and worshipping money to basically great extreme, and other people worship, fame. Whatever it

00:29:19 --> 00:29:49

takes to become famous to become an influencer, whatever it takes to have a following so that everyone is watching your life, your every movement, your every recipe, your everything your children are exposed all over social media. Why? Because you want some kind of falling on some kind of thing. That's embarrassing for the human being to do, we should have a high standard, but everything needs to be public, and especially your acts of worship and some of the blessings that Allah has given you keep some things private. And in fact, you're supposed to make private as many of your good deeds as possible. May Allah protect us. The question is what do people worship today?

00:29:49 --> 00:29:59

Most most Western nations today are seeing a rise in desire worship. The idol now for many people, or a terminator for the Allahu Hawa is desire worship people put their desires

00:30:00 --> 00:30:34

on a pedestal and see whatever makes me happy. That's what I will pursue. And that's what society should accept. If you don't accept it, you don't agree with it. You are intolerant, when in reality, this is a type of self worship, you're worshiping your neffs and your power. And this is also a rejection and intolerance towards everything that is around you of goodness that will help you remind you and move you back to what is true law. Elon was the greatest advocate why? Because it purifies the heart internally, and it changes you externally and therefore changes society for the better, you cannot become the greatest possible version of yourself without the law, you cannot

00:30:34 --> 00:31:10

solve the problems that society is engaged in is dealing with without La Ilaha illa Allah. So you say that in Allah brothers and sisters, we say this, this phrase, this powerful liberation, this key to Paradise, this key to solutions is prevention to many harms and injustice is they are night to learn the different DUA and they could in which you find that in Allah. For example, when you go through hardship, like Eunice Sally has Salam you say la isla in inter Subhanak in the continental body mean, this is a reminder for us in times of hardship, Allah subhanaw taala is the one who protects the one who saves the one who relieves when you're looking to renew your faith you you make

00:31:10 --> 00:31:46

the dua of see you the list of four morning and evening Allama interim be all your mind Lord, La ilaha illa and pull up any one Abduch you are emphasizing the truth. This is called the master do art for forgiveness and encourage every Muslim to learn it to teach it to exemplify live upon it and teach it to others inshallah Tada especially in your family. And one time a young student he asked, and in these last few moments, we'll summarize with this in sha Allah. He said, How do we renew our faith as Muslims? So we learned that Ilhan Omar, a lot of people perhaps saw the title of today's session said, well I already know Shahada. I'm already Muslim. What else do I need to do? Like what

00:31:46 --> 00:32:25

am I supposed to do with this information? But the reality of law law is that you need to always renew your faith, reinforce it strengthen in fact, you know who told us this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the Companions as well, God do Imana come renew your faith agenda do Eman accom they said yeah rasool Allah, how are we supposed to renew our faith? What tiefen agenda do Imana the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said the ruling co de la ilaha illallah increase your frequency of saying La ilaha illa Allah renew your faith brothers and sisters day and night La Ilaha illa Allah it will protect you, it will help you will guide you I swear by Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:32:25 --> 00:33:03

And there is no one worthy of worship except for Allah, that La Ilaha illa Allah can be the greatest healing in your life, the greatest solution to your problems, the greatest protection against a lot of harm the Illa Illa Allah, but don't stop renewing your faith, don't become disconnected from this, we are always in need of that reminder where that could fit in the decor tenfold more meaning once again, the young man on his deathbed is told to c'est la ilaha. And he could not and will lie he we have so many stories of all than young. And nobody had to tell them that they're seeing law in a law that either law, law, law and Allah and Prophet Nurhaliza Salam at the end of his life when

00:33:03 --> 00:33:41

death approached him the authentic hadith when death approached, and he called his sons to him, and he said, my time is very short. And I want you to receive some reminder some instruction. So I commend you with two when I prohibit you with two. He said, I forbid you from committing idol worship and from arrogance, may Allah protect us. And I commend you to declare La Ilaha illa Allah, for if the heavens and the earth and everything between them were placed on one side of the scale. And Allah Allah Allah was placed on the other side, it would truly outweigh all of them. And if the heavens and the earth, basically a ring of solid iron, and the declaration of law in law was placed

00:33:41 --> 00:34:17

upon it was shattered to pieces if it were basically a ring of solid iron Hadith law in law which shattered meaning it's so much heavier than it. He said, I command you to declare the glory of Allah and His praises, for it is the prayer of all things. It is the foundation of things. And it is the reason that we are given provisions in law, law in law and law. You know who else son in law at the end of his life, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam repeated law, you know, and Allah, in a little Mattila circle a lot, that has its pains, and the prophets, Allah awesome, gave us all some good news and this is going to be very important as a transition to what you're going to hear next

00:34:17 --> 00:34:51

inshallah Tada when I leave. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said, Whoever declares ILA and law, seeking the countenance of Allah as his last deed is fixed the last thing you do in your life, and you will enter Jannah whoever fascinating seeking the pleasure of Allah and it ends up being your last deed you will enter Jannah This is very important. Whoever gives in charity, whoever gives a charity seeking the pleasure of Allah and it's your last lead you will enter Jannah and you will have all of these opportunities and you have them already in this month of the ledger and just shortly inshallah to Allah and on his deathbed the prophecy license concealer in a hand Allah and He

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

gives you a nice some good news. Men kind of ask you to kilometer you don't know the full agenda. Whoever's last words, or law law will enter paradise

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

And so at the end of your life, you want to see it because you lived upon it now because you tried to avoid it. And now you want to say no you lived upon it. When you enter your grave by the mercy of Allah, the very first thing you'll be asked about who's your Lord? And who is the master and you're, you're expressing that in Allah, you're expressing the shahada in and was the very first thing you're asked about in the grave. Do you know what happens? La ilaha illallah ends up being a source of light for you. And Allah will keep you firm, through your living upon law in Allah and dawning upon it as well. When you are resurrected for the Day of Resurrection, the Prophet sallallahu

00:35:29 --> 00:36:00

Arneson told us wherever it testifies, now you know why Mohammed rasool Allah, Allah will forbid that person from the fire and Allah will guarantee them Jana brothers and sisters are summarized with this. Take the shahada as your best friend in this world, as your closest companion for it will never abandon you ticket as your salvation for it will liberate you. It is your light, it is your relief. It is your healing, it is your joy. It is your breath. It is what motivates you to do acts of worship and not to hesitate when it comes to prayer when it comes to helping others when it comes to charity when it comes to fasting. And Allah Subhana Allah promises that He will protect you and

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

liberate you reward you and elevate you, the shahada in your heart, and you will find that your actions will follow and into the grave, your shahada will follow you and because you lived upon it, and you did not abandon it, it will not to abandon you. And when you are resurrected, and you will see darkness and you will see hardship and you'll see fear in many people's experiences, you will be safe, you will be happy and you will be relieved because of la ilaha illa, Allah, La, la La, la La, la, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to live our partner in law to understand it, and to have sincerely uncertainty with it and to share it with others as well as many people as possible. And to

00:36:36 --> 00:37:11

make it a reason for us to be motivated to do as much good as possible in this life before we return to him was salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi igmi which is Kamala Farrish externa Madhavi Subhanallah we can always count on you to begin the program on a powerful note and to pull us out of our kind of surroundings and our mindset into to focus and get us into deep reflection just like milk has some amazing gems and notes I see in the chat. I hope that you guys continue to share them here on telegram this is going to be a short and sweet session inshallah. So we have an A very important reminder shifts that a man may not be able to be at hang around with us. We'll see if

00:37:11 --> 00:37:39

you have some time for questions. If you guys have questions, please drop them into the chat and we'll do our best to honor them and shot let's Allah but I do want to make sure that we do keep the program going and we get a chance to hear this beneficial reminder before we close and when we do that, actually, I want to actually share a video so please let me know if you guys can see and hear this clearly. It's an important video and let me know if you guys are able to hear it so Bismillah Hi, guys. So I'm here in Afghanistan to talk

00:37:43 --> 00:37:50

April 2023 And I want to share something so exciting with you. So I want to this family family Yasmina

00:37:52 --> 00:38:09

These are beautiful people children. Six weeks ago, I was super Yasmina. Six weeks ago Yasmina was living in a tent in minus temperatures minus it was minus 20 degrees. Six weeks ago, these children were begging in the streets, bless them. They had no food and they had no home.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:44

Now let's fast forward six weeks or so I'm back here in Afghanistan. I'm back here Yasmina. And I want to share something so exciting with you. She has now moved. So what we've done is that the first thing we did is that we gave her a business. This is one of interventions of working because I want to tell you how her life has changed. We gave Yasmin her business. The Fast Track. Six weeks on she is now buying food for her family. She's now paying rent to the new accommodation. She's moved out of a 10. And the most amazing thing which is so beautiful that these children are no longer begging. They're actually in the madrasa. They're actually studying the next generation so we've

00:38:44 --> 00:38:59

broken a cycle of poverty, Yasmina what she's doing, she's providing for our entire family. So well this just goes to show that if you invest in a woman is the quickest way to break the cycle of poverty. The quickest way to change it

00:39:00 --> 00:39:35

is a drip feed donation after donation after donation monthly give a one off donation and help these women out of the poverty trap because when they stand on their feet, they are hard working and they will bill make it work and they were better than the family and the community is the best way guys we are changing lives in Afghanistan. Does that look everyone for your feedback? Sorry, I think the video was a little bit slow or the audio was a little bit low but inshallah we'll get a chance to benefit from the message still because we have a very beloved guests with us you're familiar with our guests Alhamdulillah you benefit and you've supported us generously with our partners that

00:39:35 --> 00:39:59

forgotten women throughout this Ramadan and and hamdulillah through the video and we're sharing shall in the future you'll see the impact that you've had through those donations and hemline hubster sabya Sajid with us from forgotten women ages Acalypha for joining us sabya es Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. How are you doing today? Welcome Salaam Alaikum to low but I got hamdulillah I'm very well thank you and just Avila Heron for giving us this very special segment. You know, this moment in a very beautiful program Mashallah.

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

on these special days, especially, to allow us to speak about the plight of our brothers and sisters are not 100 days, it's always an honor to be here and share the platform with your sabbatical AFRICOM. And everyone who's still on the call as well. I imagine that it was got things to do, but you've stayed. So buckle up, we come to you for staying as well. And apologies for the video being a little bit sort of have a bit of a disrupted quality. Unfortunately, we weren't able to mitigate that. But by the way, come again for staying, I'm gonna go straight into why we're here in sha Allah Subhan Allah, we're in the days of the HIPAA. And I personally am one of those people who when I

00:40:33 --> 00:41:09

reflect upon these recording recorded like, truth is it's truth, right? Because the things that happened in our Islamic history, I have to also bring some sort of like, draw parallels into the world that we're living in today. And I can't help but think that in these days, we think about the greatest sacrifices that our parents ever been asked to make. And that the greatest moment of trust that a person's had to put in Allah that Allah to help will come. Those are two things that I really get out these days of the ledger from the stories of Abraham Elisa Lam. It's very nice, I'm hydrolate, salam, and all the things that they had to endure their challenges, their tests, and then

00:41:09 --> 00:41:44

I look at what's happening in the world today, and I'm a fundraiser. So I'm very much at the forefront I see all the time. And I see our mothers in Afghanistan, I'm gonna focus on the first time because we saw the video that one has and what they're going through, and the sacrifices that they're also being asked to make. There are very, very, indeed, painful sacrifices that neither you or I would ever be able to bear. They are being asked to sacrifice if not their child themselves. In order to save the other children. They're being asked to sacrifice their bodies. There's an entire village where they're being asked, they are smaller, they are being forced to sacrifice parts of

00:41:44 --> 00:42:24

their body organs, is a huge sacrifice as you can you imagine that a parent would ever be asked to mate and they're still being asked to make it here and now in the 20th century span that and then you've got Pinilla, you've got parents who are smiling, I want to start as you know, it's been back to back invasions and occupations and war. So majority of the women that are put on women work with their actually widows and widowers families. These are women who have no one else to call to turn upon or to, to protect them. But Allah no one else. And they just like hydrolate salon when she was racing between Saba and Mariah, I think of my sisters, my brothers in in Afghanistan, how they are

00:42:24 --> 00:42:56

also in their own way, clinging to that rope of Allah, and asking Allah, what is your help and accom, please help us they're trusting in Him. They're still saying they're likely to hate Allah, they're not giving up on that at all. They're not going to lose their belief, because of their challenges. But the help is you and I, that help that they call it alpha is una. And so I forgot him. And what we're trying to do in Sharla, today is to try our best that yes, we can give them a course little handout, we give what Barney and we think, Okay, that's great. But you know, Spanner, the reality is Urbani period, for many people across the world is the only time they're going to

00:42:56 --> 00:43:27

have meat, the only time they will actually have meat in the whole year. And a lot of time that providing meat isn't even fresh meat, a lot of the time it has to be canned in order to get it shipped to them and to be delivered to them. So that's the only time they're going to have meat, and it's the only time that they're going to have it. What we have a lot of women want to do is actually break that cycle, we want to give the sister, our mother, the ability to be able to provide for herself so that she's not in a queue for next year for the next little Barney to take them out of the queue in sha Allah, that's what we're here to do. We can do that. We've been doing this already

00:43:27 --> 00:44:01

100 landeck. Many people are probably familiar with me asking and making this plea. But I'm really, really proud to do so because Subhan Allah, we've helped 300 women so far with this project, of breaking the cycle of poverty, giving them a business, that will mean that they are income, or the income generators themselves, they have their own business. They're not they're out of the queue, another sister can come and you can help that sister instead. So we've done that we've helped 300 Sisters, and off the 300 sisters full transparency, only three of those businesses have not successfully lifted off the ground, all the others are doing a thriving three habit. And the reason

00:44:01 --> 00:44:30

why I'll be honest with you two of them is because the government has changed the rules about what kind of businesses are allowed. So their businesses had to be shut down. And we're now looking at a different ways to help those Sisters is that kind of turned the project around, they're not going to be left at all, we're going to pick them up in another way which is going to pivot and then the third sister, she was relying upon a family member who wasn't capable of looking after the product of the business for her. So again, we're going to look at who we can help put in place instead of that family member. So again, complete transparency, we're not going to let the sister down,

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

inshallah we can bring that that success rate up to 100%. But right now is that 95% It's an amazing projects and 95% of people who've helped broken the cycle of poverty, they are earning 100 to 200 pounds a month. As part of last their rent their food their children can eat, go to school, they can get medicine, anything they need everything, all their needs are met by this one payment that you can make in sha Allah and if you're listening, you're thinking how can we help? How can we support How can we be the answer to that to us? How can we be like Oh,

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

Our mother hydrated Islam and these days we think of her to add that she made Oh Allah please help me and then it rubra Elise around payment he was the answer to her when he brought brought upon something What are we going to do that can be a lasting impact for her as well each other, our mothers each other, you have the ability to do that. And our time is short so I'm gonna go straight into the ASCII chart Allah there's a link that you can go to you can donate, I would plead with you all in these days. Yes Give you a lot of money but also think how can I lift and break the cycle in sha Allah How can we break the cycle give as much as you can, it's 1000 pounds to complete the lift

00:45:32 --> 00:46:07

the sister of poverty 1000 pound or one off payment. Remember, she's no longer in the queue next year Kobani she won't need you, she'll be able to provide her children her own food inshallah. She'll be able to the entire year round not just by next year, but it literally from as soon as the business itself is happening. And as you saw in the video, unfortunately bigger didn't wasn't very clear in volume, but within six weeks, from the first visit to the six weeks later, the sister is earning money and she's she's literally thriving hamdulillah she's not in a tent, she can pay rent, she can have a roof over our head. That's safety, security, and it's preventing them from making

00:46:07 --> 00:46:39

sacrifices. And this period when we think about sacrifices were never been good Inshallah, Allah is never going to ask us to make such sacrifices. But these are parents who are having to make such sacrifices, let's be that voice that helps them Inshallah, here's them their voice I'm here Angela to be the voice for the voiceless. But please, let us be those people who come forward and help them in sha Allah and lift them out of poverty is 1000 pounds you can do that inshallah you can give any amount you can break it down, you can give 100 pounds a month, over 10 months if you want to, or you just want to make a one off donation. You know, honestly, all the Allah knows what He has blessed

00:46:39 --> 00:47:13

you with what your what's what's your what's in your means, what's in your capacity, what's in your bank account, you can give any small amount that the link on LaunchCode does have several different price handles that you can commit to, but give any amount in Sharla every 1000 that we raise, and Sharla if it's not allocated to a food pack, we will give it to a sister and lift them completely out of poverty, her and her family so she doesn't have to give up her body which is horrendous but it's happening and it's wise for one woman was set up it was to provide safe a to women by women. So women are at the frontline delivering and there's no interaction with men, so there's no chance of

00:47:13 --> 00:47:49

them being sexually exploited. There's prevented children being sacrificed being sold. And it's also ensuring that the the family stays together as Pineland they can survive, and more importantly, that they had their dignity intact. So this is my plea to you on behalf of forgotten women, please give as much as you can in these days. Where as Schiff said that the spotlight this is your last date and no one not a loved one. Nobody knows. Do it with the sincerity of light and the law. This may be my last deed please yeah, like accept it from me, like Ibrahim alayhi salam did as he was building the Kaaba Subhan Allah so many brothers sisters are in Mecca right now. And they are circumambulate in

00:47:49 --> 00:48:24

the Kaaba that is still there, here and now spawn, I always find it beautiful to think that the action that they took those many years ago is still having a huge impact is the most profound impacted all of our lives as a Muslim Spartan. But what they said was really, really profound, or a lot accept it or accept it. So when we do this, please do the same thing. Make your donation and say Allah accept it from me. Because only Allah can accept your problem with an only Allah will allow it to be a means of our salvation, I will insist that help will come to them, whether it's through you and eyes, our choice, whether it be from someone else, allowable places like that, he really will

00:48:25 --> 00:48:27

take the opportunity and ask a lot please accepted.

00:48:29 --> 00:49:01

Is that gonna look sad? Yeah, it's such an honor to have you back with us. And we have you partnering with us for this, the hijab 360 experience Subhanallah it's difficult to hear every time but there's a reason why, you know, there's there's such a sensitivity and there's that we feel so close to the cause of forgotten woman. And mashallah the efforts that you guys have on the ground, this is not something that's easy to do, to see, to experience and to support, you guys do all the hard work, all we have to do is to, to give it a little bit. And this is the best way to facilitate a long term solution, something we're constantly asked to help people to feed people. And that's

00:49:01 --> 00:49:35

such a beautiful thing, but to be able to give them the ability to feed themselves and the ability to feed their families and to have that confidence and that dignity. It's something so beautiful, to be able to help in any small way. I encourage you guys all to do so. And I know shifts in demand did say that you had something you wanted to share in sha Allah as well. So I want to pass the stage to Jeff, and shot Alicia, just back off here for staying with us. And I'll pass it over to those medical people that will fit into society as well may Allah subhanaw taala except for you. I just want to say this. For those who don't know, not every charity is the same. The impact of the charity

00:49:35 --> 00:49:59

varies. And one of the things we're constantly reminding people it's about a charity that impacts structures. So it brings about a lot of other types of changes. You can give someone who is struggling, you can give them some money to help them for the week. You can give somebody who's struggling. Food you can give them meat at hamdulillah it's an act of worship, your charity will be rewarded accepted by Allah. But imagine the reality of empowering

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

someone to be able to work protecting them from being exploited and from harm and giving, giving them not just the ability and talent to continue to sustain themselves by the blessings of Allah, but also all the good that they do, and the empowerment that they pass on to others and the children that they are able to raise, and the fact that you're protecting them from some, some great harm that comes about the charity cannot be compared to the one in which you just gave someone the money that they needed for the week. And so I actually was not aware of what would be mentioned today. And I had the lecture prepared before this, even about the topic of charity that we had mentioned at the

00:50:35 --> 00:51:12

end. But I cannot imagine anyone who is listening to this right now live and wanting to practice law in the moment and see an opportunity, just rejecting it without reason without reason. And so if you are able to install on top and take advantage, this is one of the greatest acts of worship because it leads to structural change. And also these are the days of the hijab, this is exactly what we are talking about when you have an opportunity to live upon that and look externally take advantage of the opportunity to race to Allah's pleasure, your race for the keys of Jannah and may Allah subhanaw taala alleviate the affairs of our brothers and sisters in every land in every place and make us a

00:51:12 --> 00:51:44

means of changing the world. Take advantage of this I urge you don't forget about it. So open the link now so that at least it's open inshallah Tada take the two or three steps that it takes to finish this act of worship and then inshallah Tada and move on. And me I was pantalla accept from you alone. I mean, I believe I was told we had time for one or two questions. Is there a strap so yes, in sha Allah. So just like a fellowship in sha Allah, you guys have the link, it's launched forward slash FW, in the link description as well on YouTube and on Facebook and everywhere as well. So remember that link, click on it, share it within your chats, we'll put it on telegram

And as we sit in the comfort of our homes and Alhamdulillah that we have the blessing takes to experience the Hijra without the worry for our next meal without the worry for our own circumstances and our families, please make sure that you take care of those who don't have that, that ease and just Ecclesia for being with us again and shall we look forward to seeing you soon. But it's such an honor as always to partner with people who do such great work and to be able to facilitate that in small little waves with a mark of Institute shift I missed a couple of questions I think that came on earlier on this session.

00:52:24 --> 00:53:00

yes, I would encourage everyone to inshallah Tada follow a noted Institute and or benefit from fake essential the next time we have a class on Tauheed the concept of the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala you will benefit from the inshallah Tada. In addition to this, I would encourage everyone to study the names and attributes of Allah. So when you find a book, On the topic of the needs, attributes along by a qualified scholar, take advantage you may find different commentary, different reflections. Just literally just a week ago, somebody asked me about a book that they had actually written by shifts and allowed them it was hard to make it easy for him on the topic of the needs of

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

loss of hard data. And so he found reflections in that book that he had not read in a previous book. The names and attributes of Allah bring you closer to him. It motivates you softens your heart brings about change in your character, the way you treat your family, other people the acts of worship that you do. So learn who Allah is and you will start to know who more of who you actually aren't what you're supposed to be doing. And then the second thing is we do have of course, the another course on His Majesty by Shia Amata Shipley can also take advantage of that Charlotta Allah and we have a lot of upcoming programs and classes that are being developed for the fall semester
