And from

00:06:33--> 00:07:10

our perspective, and it's very sort of toto buddy, but in front of very learned scholars here for us to actually condemn this aborted act that happened yesterday. On behalf of Birmingham on behalf of our Masjid on behalf of management all people around here, we should condemn as much as we condemn attacks anywhere in the world for innocent people. We do the same that happened last night in Manchester without being apologetic about it. But I think it's very important for us to make sure that we do condemn what happened last night was very important and we shouldn't be actually standing up for this inshallah. So without much ado, I'm gonna call my shots just come forward to me, Marsha.

Praise be to Allah subhanaw taala in the beginning of our efforts and the end of our efforts, praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for the name of Emma and Walker behind Atma or Allah subhanaw taala is blessed in the state of man has kept us in a state of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a moment that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose and destined for us to be in this blessing house of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a state of obedience where we could have easily been in a state of disobedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen to send his Easter feed his divine assistance down upon us, we should say Alhamdulillah his moments truly like these, that

00:09:04--> 00:09:40

when we blessed with the gatherings of the Dhamma and the Sangha and the qura, that we should be really, really thankful because it is in these gatherings with a message of Allah subhanaw taala descend within a living in a time of tribulations and is truly the end times for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam will say see akuna lacamas is a man that you would really be facing a troubled time in a time of tribulation. And he's really if we're not thinking that we're not living in that time now. And it's the end time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was speaking about and what time is he speaking about? Because most of the signs that we see here as children are almost

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

manifest. And in these times of tidal waves of gopher tidal waves of disbelief that is coming towards this tidal waves of pure fitna that is attacking us, as our children and every part of our core of our being is being rattled and shaken. How do we then preserve our faith? That is

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

The truth commodity that we're going to take into the hereafter. How do we take our Eman that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with, and we have a duty to preserve that faith. Because it isn't just that we can blame Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave it to us, but he took it away from us. But what is it that we did in our life that we did to preserve this faith that we could face a loss of anoder Allah on the Day of Judgment, and we can face the loss of unworthiness say the year we did something for it. Yeah, we did something for the next generation. But it's the realities of these moments that we can ask ourselves, what are we going to do? How do we then

00:10:37--> 00:11:18

preserve the space in our times? Mawlana Taha Mashallah sobre la mia lacinato preserving, he's gonna come and he's enlightening us on this very topic of how we can preserve the man in these troubled times Manasa Mashallah. He needs no introduction and emails that will give him justice inshallah, in his introduction, but in the grand scheme of things, that a person can leave his home and come across the world, for the sake of the betterment of being of others. And he could have easily just been worried about his own town, but he's come all the way across the world just to give us a glimpse of Dean a glimpse of Allah subhanho wa Taala into his heart, and that concern that the

00:11:18--> 00:11:58

Prophet sallallahu wasallam that thicker, that the messenger sallallahu Sallam Yani had in his heart and transferred it to those are the heirs of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa slim, it is upon us then to open our eyes and to a Sema, not SEMA. There's a grand difference in the SEMA is going to be simple that you just listen passively walking past in through one ear out of the other. But the real nice want to look at the real hug, is the man that we listen attentively, any further take notes, take your notes, if when I listen with so much conviction that if somebody was asked you a week later A month later you can take you can absolutely tell them exactly what was said in that modulus.

00:11:58--> 00:12:26

And something that we can take away that we can springboard into something greater inshallah, in our leaps of faith that we have in these times. May Allah subhanho wa Taala preserve our Eman, Eman of our children all the way until the day of judgment. Allah subhanaw taala preserve order Allah and especially our Milena Taha for coming all the way all the way from Cape Town and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless us in our image. Let's open our hearts for the pure light. There was a lot of messengers Ellison's legacy

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

being asked to speak up on a topic such as the one that you have heard

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

is no simple matter

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

if for no other reason.

00:17:26--> 00:17:30

And for the simple fact that had one man alone,

00:17:31--> 00:17:38

one man on his own had the answer to such a problem, the world would have been a very simple place.

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

No one single person can claim to have

00:17:43--> 00:17:48

the entire comprehensive solution to the problem that has been outlined.

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

But what we can perhaps

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

offer in response to the question that how do we preserve our faith at a time of tribulation?

00:18:01--> 00:18:26

What we could perhaps offer in response to that question is glimpses from history from the life of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, wasallam and the Sahaba together with him, glimpses from the hedaya the guidance contained in the Quran, glimpses from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

Having made reference to history,

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

we find that

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

we look at history is something that is both linear

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

and cyclical at the same time,

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

linear in the sense that time moves in a particular direction,

00:18:46--> 00:18:49

it moves in one direction, it does not come back.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

cyclical However, in the sense that

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

phenomenon history keep repeating themselves,

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

patterns recur

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

in the manner that history unfolds with the passage of time.

00:19:05--> 00:19:09

In this respect, I want to be sallallahu wasallam

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

tells us something.

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

There was a time when this entire world was steeped

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

in disbelief and polytheism and konferencja.

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

There was a time

00:19:26--> 00:19:35

when the light of VEDA had become just about completely extinguished by the passage of many centuries.

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

In keeping with the Sunnah of Allah tala. From time to time, he would send messengers to make mankind aware of the most important existential realities. The questions about where do I come from? What am I doing here? What's the purpose of life or the meaning of life? We do.

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

headphone, winds and weather Where do I come from? Where am I headed for from time to time i'm not i would send them Brd or Salatu was salam, for that purpose.

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

And eventually,

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

when history is that very low point

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

when the light of guidance had just about been extinguished,

00:20:23--> 00:20:35

they don't the sun of the mission of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, that brilliant sun would go on shining for 23 years from the moment of Noah.

00:20:36--> 00:20:56

But that period would be divided into two separate eras. We know that there was a period in Mocambo karma for 13 years on the visa lottery or Salaam struggle for the establishment of this Deen and then 10 years in Madina munawwara we then took shape in the manner that we recognize it today.

00:20:57--> 00:21:20

referring to that very early period, afterwards, when things have become much better. When Medina mono had become established, when Dean was no standing ready to spread to all the corners of the world are sort of lost a lot has to do back from that moment, to the early days of Islam and the mark to the Sahaba while the Allah on him, but an Islam or horiba

00:21:21--> 00:21:28

when Islam started out, many of those that are with us now he says they might not have known what it was like once upon a time.

00:21:29--> 00:21:43

Many years if past 20 years if passed, perhaps more years have passed, and many people have been brought into the embrace of EDA and to the embrace of Islam. But there might be people who might have forgotten how difficult it was once upon a time, when Islam appeared originally,

00:21:44--> 00:22:02

when the star of Islam started shining, there was such darkness around it that barely anyone could recognize the truth that he stood for. It was a stranger, it was something that was going to be condemned, rejected, repudiated, no one very few would want to have anything to do with it.

00:22:04--> 00:22:07

It started out as the strange phenomenon

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

and then times changed.

00:22:11--> 00:22:24

And when it became strong in Madina, munawwara from this point onwards, what would happen eventually, in the 11th, year after the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam would leave this world, it did not mean the end of Islam.

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

Islam grew from strength, to strength.

00:22:29--> 00:22:52

So that the horrible that period in which Islam found itself, that strange phenomenon that was being rejected on all fronts, that would have become forgotten, because now we will go on century after century experiencing victory after scintillating victory, spreading the wings of Islam from the

00:22:53--> 00:23:15

from the shores of the Atlantic to the steppes of Central Asia, there was no stopping it. And it would be it was very possible it is at a time of such victories following one after the other that people would forget the beginning, what the beginning had been like, so before that happens Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us what to do comma bada.

00:23:16--> 00:23:54

As it started out, a time will come again. When again is normal become the stranger? Again, Islam will be the stranger turned around, sent away, repudiated and rejected. Again, Islam will become that phenomenon of which we are expected to be to have an inferiority complex and feel embarrassed and ashamed, as it had been once upon a time. So what will happen during that period? When that time comes? What will happen? What about those periods? Those people that will actually experience the falling of Islam into the second period of war, but after the original period of war, what is their status?

00:23:56--> 00:24:35

Are they going to be regarded as the worst of Muslims that ever lived? Are they going to be regarded as people who would abandon their Deen? Are they going to be regarded as losers anyway, from there is no hope. No Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam says for Pooh bah, bah bah glad tidings to those who would love during that period. Because just as those in the first period of orba reached the highest stages in the sight of Allah tala through their suffer through the patience, which they exerted through their dedication, their determination. Similarly, those in the latter period, if they emulate the original example can reach this very same highest stages. They can reach as high stages

00:24:35--> 00:24:52

when eventually the time will come when this linear history of ours starts showing its cyclical side when the initial vorbei is now replaced by the second orba. It had been a long time in coming. It had been a long time in coming How many years have passed over 1000 years at past

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

and in different parts of the Muslim world at different junctures within our history, we found that they were said

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

Next, we look for example, Spain, Muslims had been there for hundreds of years, and then they were driven out of Spain. And those that remained were forcibly converted to Catholicism as history bears witness to, for them that was a horrible that had come over them. And then we know that after 1000 years of being the masters of our own destiny, we were overtaken by the phenomenon of colonialism. And our countries was subjected to rule from the outside. And that went on for two, three, even if not for centuries. And we know that we stand now at a juncture in history, where we are just coming out of we are just barely staggering out of that particular period of colonialism. That is the world

00:25:45--> 00:25:48

which we inhabit, in this present day and age.

00:25:52--> 00:25:59

As much as one has reason to feel pessimistic about the changes that have occurred in history,

00:26:00--> 00:26:05

and where we as masters, we as the rulers have become the ruled.

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

There is one thing that we should not forget.

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

And that is,

00:26:11--> 00:26:19

is it our intention, our destiny to be rulers necessary? No, not necessarily. That is secondary.

00:26:21--> 00:27:08

Our purpose is to be those that call towards a lot Allah. Whether we actually rule or don't rule that's immaterial. What is what is it true, to rule the earth and to be the the authorities in the political power? That is to feel welcome and Tasha, tourism and Tasha to the lumen Tasha, Allah gives it to me he will. But wherever you find yourself, wherever Muslims happen to find themselves, they have a duty. They have a duty and that is to convey what they have inherited from us Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because this rush ma that came with Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam was not Rama to Lil muslimeen. This was not Rama to lil Arab. This was the thrash metal. It

00:27:08--> 00:27:21

wasn't intended for any particular nation, it was not even in the as urashima for mankind. It was intended to lil al Ameen. The Sahaba sola sola was intended for all the worlds

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

How will it be conveyed then?

00:27:26--> 00:27:36

Do we need to be in a position of strength and power? Or can we even achieve it when we are when we find ourselves in adverse circumstances?

00:27:38--> 00:27:43

In this particular regard, I would like to call your attention to another Hadith,

00:27:44--> 00:27:58

a hadith that hopefully will infuse some optimism within the hearts of onlookers, and those that hear it Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says layup lohana ha, Brahma Baba Khalid when

00:27:59--> 00:28:37

the scores of Islam will reach as far as light and they will reach wherever the sunrises or sunsets the scores will reach. One yet rucola who beta mother in one hour in a Holla Holla Holla Deen Allah will need leave no house, be that houseboat off for like the tense of the errors. We both have clay like the rest of civilization, by the houses, wherever it might be. Whatever the civilization whatever the culture is, wherever it is possible that the dean could go, it will go, Allah will leave no house, except that he will end bring Islam into those houses.

00:28:39--> 00:29:24

That is a lot on his promise he will bring that about whether the circumstances are in our favor, or the circumstances adverse weather we find ourselves in the state of horiba of that strange phenomenon, or whether we find ourselves in the state of Arizona, where we have power, Allah who will bring his Deen to fulfillment no matter what the cause, he will create the means for it to happen. If there ever been a time, if that ever been a time that the spread of Islam should have been adversely affected, and numbers should have shrunk. And people should have started leaving the boundary the embrace of this deal that should have been this time here. Because when has there been

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

a period in which there has been greater propaganda against Islam, more attempts to disfigure the image of Islam, more attempts to speak ill and completely turn this Deen into something repugnant? When has it been more of it? And when has there been a time in which more people have embraced Islam during this time? When has there been a time as as much as there is now because Allah will create the means for it. People will always step up. Those who do not want this word of Allah tada to spread those who do not want this Deen of Allah tala to spread. Allah speaks about them in the Quran. You read una

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

Leo, Fionnuala hibiya for him, there are those that want to do what? There is a light that Allah tala has illuminated they want to extinguish that light. How do they do it by speaking about epfr in what the amounts by saying that this is the Dean of x in this arena, why? It's a religion of violence, the religion of oppression, all of these things will be said, but remember, who are they competing against? They're not competing against just a spokesperson such as your NIH. They are competing against Allah, Allah, who has promised that this Deen will come to fulfillment while la homotopy mono re Wanaka curfew, Allah will bring that light to fulfillment lab lohana lambro

00:30:41--> 00:30:53

Marbella Allah Allah, Allah will bring it even though people do not like it, because this cause must reach when they ignite is going to reach as far as they can reach this cause will spread and will reach the system will be there.

00:30:55--> 00:31:26

They will want to speak ill of Islam in order thereby to close those entry. A lot of speaks with even greater emphasis in says, Well, yeah, but Allahu Illa Yukimura Allah refuses any outcome to the efforts, Allah will not allow any other outcome to happen except the fulfillment of the knower which he has created. There's no one of Islam that will happen, whether we work for it or we don't work for it. If we don't work for it, I'll bring someone else to do so.

00:31:28--> 00:31:54

Somehow I took out a little bit of Isabella to say no desire, a lot of assays are interval low yesterday, recover manohara calm, the meta will come to fulfillment. If you are not there to fulfill it, this method will come to fulfillment. If you do not step up to the challenge. If you don't step up, step up to the great honor of of being part of the fulfillment of the Xen, Allah will remove you from this enabling others in your place, and it will spread all the same.

00:31:55--> 00:32:29

So when we are concern for preserving our faith, as my faith and your faith as individuals, not the existence of Islam on the face of this earth, Islam, the existence of Islam on the face of this earth is a secure act. It was promised by Allah Allah, Allah will create the means for it, Allah will lead to fulfillment and no one can make a lot of other desist deflect from that particular path. No one can stand in the way of the fulfillment or fulfillment of that promise, we can see with our own eyes how a model is bringing about

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

so where is the problem in life?

00:32:33--> 00:32:49

If it is a matter of fact that Islam will reach way day and night as reached, the problem doesn't lie with the fulfillment of the promise, the problem lies in when that promise gets fulfilled, will you and I be there when our children be part of it still

00:32:51--> 00:32:53

the caravan is moving forward.

00:32:54--> 00:33:02

The test is not whether it will reach his destination. The test is whether we will be on that caravan when it reaches its destination.

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

Destination will be reached, will we be part of it? Those are individual choices to be made. Those are the choices that each and every person individually will have to make. Our team consists of different departments.

00:33:21--> 00:33:26

Our Dean in the simplest explanation in the simplest of explorations

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

consists of four departments.

00:33:31--> 00:33:48

This is not something that I have formulated think of of my own know this for this particular lesson. A lot created very special circumstances. A very special scenario was set the stage was set so that the entire oma could learn

00:33:49--> 00:34:28

and remember and understand that in accordingly. I was well how did ya come to azula masala gibreel. Private he will come to Nabi sallallahu wasallam in any way no one else could see him. Whether it was in the cave of Hira, whether it was in a battlefield, whether it was in the privacy of the home of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. But for this particular event, gibreel came in a form that everyone could see as a human. And he came into the modulus of W sallallahu wasallam in machinery, and sat down in front of him like a student. Well, escena de roca de la ropa. De, he sat with his knees touching the knees of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, with all the other of his

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

students in front of his teacher, and everyone is watching.

00:34:33--> 00:34:46

And then he asked for questions. And those questions are these four departments of our Dean? What is Islam? What is the man? What is the sun? And what are the signs of glioma?

00:34:47--> 00:34:54

I'm not even going to I'm not even going to answer these questions, because I'm sure everyone knows the answers to these questions, the very basis of our theme.

00:34:56--> 00:34:58

So first of all, what is our belief

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


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

What is our practice?

00:35:03--> 00:35:13

Thirdly, how do we see ourselves in the progression of history? Where do we stand because I started out by saying something, time is linear

00:35:14--> 00:35:34

phenomena of time repeat themselves, patterns within that linear progression of time will repeat themselves. But time is linear. It started out from a particular point when a lot of that decided to create and it will end at a particular point. And that the end of that point is what that will be the Yamanaka the last day in Korea comes after that this will will not last forever.

00:35:35--> 00:36:14

So what do we do in terms of our preparation for that we see ourselves along the course of the progression of history is the line, we said somewhere along that line, we will never know how far we are from the end. But it's not important for us to know where we are. What's important for us to know is what have we done in preparation for it, the signs will be there. Madonna has made mention of the fact that so many of the signs have been seen, and quite a great possibility that those are the actual signs that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam intended, and then there is a possibility that what we are seeing is similar to the signs that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam intended, they might be

00:36:14--> 00:36:25

coming somewhat later as well. The point is not to identify the precise point in history where we are, it is that how much have we done in preparation for something which is near inevitable.

00:36:26--> 00:36:27

And the last aspect,

00:36:29--> 00:36:40

this was the last aspect. The third one was what in your belief structure in what you believe in what you the concepts that you subscribe to.

00:36:41--> 00:36:48

The dogmas that you describe that you subscribe to, the beliefs that you hold in your heart and your mind.

00:36:49--> 00:37:35

If you add to that, your practice as a Muslim, there tends to come a time that's a human thing. It happens to any religious community, any religious community that has a prescription in terms of belief, and has prescriptions in terms of practice, it could happen that the spiritual realities that your practice and your dogma and your beliefs are supposed to keep alive, it could always happen that you forget about them and they dry out and you start practicing religion as a set of empty rituals, some things to be done, you do it but there is no real communion with Allah tala in the manner that you believe and in the manner that you practice, that is something to be guarded

00:37:35--> 00:38:16

against. So in Islam, there are certain beliefs that we have to subscribe to. In a man in Islam, there are certain practices that we have to fulfill certain obligations that we have to fulfill. And in practicing both of those, you have to maintain that communion with allowed on your side also not just become an act of ritual, it must be an act of veritable communion communication with a louder when you stand in that solid and what happens. You say Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil alameen Allah responses is a communication taking place at that moment. You know, you recite al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen do not think that nothing is happening. Something's happening at that moment. You

00:38:16--> 00:38:18

say, and Allah says hamadani have the

00:38:19--> 00:39:02

most slave is pleased me and you read the next ayah and a lot of us is a finale of the annual Rick's iron A lot of us have something similar. And you read next I and a lot of this is when you have the muscle. Now whatever minds they want, I will give it to him. And then you come in a man says moldoveanu himolla bonnin and we say our mean from Anwar Takata me know that Amina mala ekati, wholesale Allahumma. Gumby, whoever has is amin coinciding with amin of America, which is why we elongate that army in a little bit. Not a very quick army, but it's an elongated walk and interview salatu salam Yamato Bihar Soto, he would extend his voice somewhat. Why because that moment is a

00:39:02--> 00:39:44

great moment of what your aim your amin coinciding with the amin of the melodica is something celestially happening at that moment you will not see but who has informed us of it Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is informed of your amin coincide with amin of the Medina Allah forgives your sons Allah forgives your sins what is happening now if we look at our email our email in this manner Islam in this manner that it is a veritable act of communion with Allah tala together with the with the participation of the mother aka them the spirit of ersan of doing things in such a manner and taboo de la haka and Nakata worshipping Allah as if you see him for a lambda continental era.

00:39:44--> 00:40:00

Perhaps you not perhaps for a fact you will not be able to see a lava in this world. You cannot see a lot in this world we will see online okay, but your Eman is such that you know that he's seeing you. Yo yo yo crane builds up to such a level that whether you can

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

See him on Earth, you are so bold with your team that he is seeing me. That is when the religion comes to me in something that is when Dean comes to mean something. And that is the manner in which we preserve one of the steps in which we reserve faith during this time. Let's go back to the period of Macaca Rama.

00:40:18--> 00:40:22

What happened? The Wii U Salalah. Hard to sell them comes with a message of Islam.

00:40:25--> 00:40:58

And people start rejecting it. As people will reject today as well there will be those that will reject does rejection mean that we have to give up? Does rejection or repudiation does the fact that people distort Islam, whether they be from outside of the house of Islam, whether they will be those from inside the house of Islam, who do things in the name of Islam that stands condemned by one and all? Does the fact that they are those that abuse their religion? From inside as well as from outside? Does that mean we must not give up on it? No.

00:40:59--> 00:41:17

There were those who suffered much greater. They were those who suffered much greater tribulations once upon a time, we have to acquaint ourselves without how they bore those particular tribulations. And when we see what they did during that time, then we learn something for ourselves. We just pass the month of

00:41:19--> 00:41:27

Rajab and in that month of Raja we know that the Maharaja taken place it just look for glimpse for a moment. So Nova Casa de la vilano. People come to him and say that

00:41:28--> 00:41:43

where were you yesterday? No, I wasn't here. I was out of town for business. Do you know what your friend is saying? He claims that he went where he went on his ra tbaytel Noctis. And he did this, that and the other and they offer you into mirage. After massages well,

00:41:44--> 00:42:17

fairytales could this ever be the Abubakar of the Ilana coderre felt embarrassed at that moment and said, you know, it's not actually like you think it is, you know, you must understand things differently and become apologetic about it. What did he say? He says, My friend tells me about things much greater than this. I believe in when he says that, what about this journey from here to buy to love this? I believe what he's basically telling us, I believe in the existence of a dimension of this creation year, beyond what I can see. Because when I say amen to Bill

00:42:18--> 00:43:06

womma ekati wakatobi He will surely he will you mean I believe in things of the unseen I believe in a dimension that human eyes cannot see that human ears cannot hear that the human mind cannot even conceive of I believe in the existence of Jannah in which there is what Mashallah I know not what a non Samia, what a hopper Allah Calvi Bhatia, no I have ever seen. So we cannot even imagine what it is like no ear has ever hear her. And therefore we cannot imagine what the reality of it is like, and no idea of what it could possibly be has ever even passed through the mind of a believer of a human for that matter of a human. So we believe in the existence of a dimension beyond this world,

00:43:06--> 00:43:45

beyond this world, and we believe together with that, we believe in the limitations of the human mind, to perceive whatever there is nothing to put us in this world for a purpose. Why do we exist? See those existential questions? Why are we here are here to earn as much wealth as possible, to build as large an empire as possible, to become as powerful as possible before we die? No. MVR came to us and told us our purpose in this world is Allah created for that purpose. Maha colgin will insert elderly a boon. But together with that, the task was not made easy.

00:43:46--> 00:43:49

You were given as a human being a natural arrogance,

00:43:50--> 00:44:15

a light place something within you, what does he placed within you his place within you the intellect. And the intellect, by its very nature is arrogant. It tells you that I have the ability to perceive. And if you say I have the ability to perceive full stop, no problem. If you say I have the ability to perceive everything that can possibly exist, then you've made a mistake. A lot of hasn't given your heart and for that reason,

00:44:16--> 00:44:58

Allah has given you a hackle so that you can live this life in the manner that he requires you to, but he hasn't given you an article for this reason that you must use that to judge everything in life. And if I cannot see it, therefore it doesn't exist is not part of the system, which a lot of has created. It's a test. Do you send someone into the examination room with the textbook was in which is all the answers and then he writes a test like that? The teacher who does that? Who gives the student all the answers, or slips a textbook into his pocket and says the answers on page 77 and 59? Is that an intelligent teacher? We all say that is stupid. It is ridiculous. So why do we reduce

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

a lot a lot of that level?

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

A lot of expects us to pass the test with our own understanding of our limitations has given us this mind, the mind will tell us certain things, the mind will cover certain things. And the mind has a tendency to become, as I said, arrogant, and when it becomes arrogant, he takes you in the wrong direction. This happens throughout history. In fact, the very very first incident of the first incident in which obedience was expected. Obedience was expected. What happened at that moment?

00:45:36--> 00:46:22

A police was told a lot of these items vote on in front of him. He applied his own mind. He thought his mind can understand the reasons behind a lot on asking him about down. I was expecting I was if I was ordering bow down, face and I'm not gonna bow down because I'm superior to him. Hello, my name is Dr. Herman Cain. He's using his intellect using his intellect against the Express Command of Allah Tada. That was a failure. On the other hand, we find the symbol, the very symbol, the one in the Quran, who stands out as a symbol of unquestioning acceptance. So isn't it Rahim? Allah alayhi salatu salam if Khalid Abu Abu Aslam

00:46:23--> 00:47:00

a lot of Oman that submit, what did he do? Did he say I will see if I understand and I will submit if I don't understand, I won't submit? I will first see is it in my interest? Or is it my interest? I will see how is my future affected by it? No, call Islam to the Arab bill Allah mean immediate acceptance without question. Immediately acceptance without question does not mean that there are no questions that remain in the mind. No, there are sometimes questions that remain in the mind. submission and questions in the mind are not mutually exclusive. When Allah told him that the dead will come to life again.

00:47:02--> 00:47:31

He also I'm not gonna be arenak eva Hill Mota, Allah Almighty Rob, show me how demonstrate to me how you will bring the dead to life. Something is dead. It exists that it had life with me once upon a time that life expired. How will the dead be brought back to life? So now here, at this point, one might imagine that he was actually objecting. I won't accept it until I see demonstration.

00:47:33--> 00:48:20

To drive this out of our minds this wrongful understanding, a lot of law tells us what that he told. It informs us that woman in Brian's arena gave her to heal Mota, in a lot of awesome I mean, do you then not believe? Does this question of yours arise out of the fact that you cannot bring yourself to accept something and believe in something unless he's demonstrated? He says no, that's not the point. Allah Allah in terms of belief, most certainly I do believe him and I do not require a demonstration for him. And I might require a demonstration just so Li OCMA in Appleby. So that the question which is scratching around in my chest, in my mind, that is making me feel a bit

00:48:21--> 00:48:33

making me worry about may be concerned about or just making this just mystifying me someone that question can be answered for that we see the demonstration. But a man is already in place the man without question.

00:48:35--> 00:48:45

We take that background and come to where we live in this world here in the world of al Qaeda in the world of what we believe in the world of Amman to be la Hamada ekati wakatobi hora de Waal Yamanaka,

00:48:46--> 00:49:12

never, in the entire spectrum of human history, have the beliefs of a religious person, not a Muslim, specifically, a religious person, the beliefs of any religious person wherever he might be, never have they been subject to as many questions as in this 20th and 21st century, what has happened?

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

Science has marched forward.

00:49:16--> 00:49:37

Humans have investigated humans have investigative minds, they have inquisitive minds, they have much more they've investigated the world around them, they scratch the surface of reality. They've scratched the surface of reality of what exists, and when they scratched the surface. They noticed something in there and they started drawing conclusions.

00:49:39--> 00:50:00

They started drawing conclusions about the reality of metal that exists around us the reality of existence in itself, that branch of philosophy which is referred to as ontology when we speak about the reality of existence, philosophy then branching out into these various different departments, biology and physics and chemistry and all

00:50:00--> 00:50:47

these various kinds of things never have mankind had as much information at his disposal, there is now so much information at his disposal that they never had before. So never in history, has there been such a great potential for the arrogance of the human mind to overcome belief. Therefore, we find ourselves living in an age of agnosticism, sometimes open atheism, we've reached the point where many are saying that Well, I do not know that the God exists, or some what some might even just go right out and say, Well, I deny the fact that there is realities, spiritual realities in alternative dimensions that I might or might not even be able to understand something completely

00:50:47--> 00:50:52

rejected. And one by one religions have fallen prey to this thing.

00:50:53--> 00:50:57

One by one regions have fallen prey to losing their faith.

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

When this happens,

00:51:03--> 00:51:42

that religions start falling prey to losing their faith. the very purpose of religion is to have faith. But those regions were intended for a time that exists that once upon a time has gone gone. It's gone past a long time ago. They are tired religions, they can no longer sustain the cause of the development of mankind. When a man has gone with things, they can no longer sustain it. Because what were they intended for? They were intended for the time of Busan. They were intended for the time of recyling set up. They were intended for the MBR of those specific years. Some of the other they made into the modern age as well, but they no longer have something to offer. They no longer

00:51:42--> 00:52:24

have the spiritual sustenance for the soul to nourish the soul in this period that we are living now for that a lot of escape the Drina Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, no religion can nourish the soul during a time when religion religious truth has become as threatened by the arrogance of the human intellect. And I say the arrogance, I mean that that is an abnormal condition. It shouldn't be having intellect is fine, but intellect should know its place. So never has religious truth, being so much threatened. But a lot of that has given us an answer to that and that is this religion of our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:52:26--> 00:52:33

as Ben can goes deeper and deeper into unlocking the secrets of physical reality that he sees around him, the way he even feels

00:52:35--> 00:52:59

emboldened to the point of saying that nothing exists, but what I can see, nothing exists, but what I can smell, nothing exists, but I can feel the only thing that exists in the world is physical reality, and there's nothing beyond physical reality, then a lot other shows them certain things, science, suddenly him, I Athena, Phil, he was he didn't foresee him, yet Albion Allah home, and

00:53:00--> 00:53:19

we will show them their signs when in the world around them in the horizons around them, and within themselves, until it becomes manifestly clear to them that this is the truth, the signs are there. But not everyone is fortunate enough to have his eyes open, but a lot better to perceive the same for what it is.

00:53:20--> 00:53:30

Let me take a step back in the development of human history and how they dealt with reality around them. You know, the philosophers of all the philosophers of Greek of Greece,

00:53:31--> 00:53:44

they looked at reality. And they made certain assumptions. They say that what does matter consist of What's matter. So there were two basic ideas amongst them. One group said that matter

00:53:45--> 00:54:06

is made up of smaller pieces, those smaller pieces are made up of smaller pieces, and you break it down and you break it down and break it down. Until you come to the indivisible particle, you come to the smallest thing, which our water can lemon juice of bloody ly attaches the smallest particle it cannot be divided.

00:54:08--> 00:54:45

And they said that is what matter is made off. There was another group of philosophers because this is a hackle only people are conjecturing from their minds. Another group said no reality is like some primordial soup out of the some partner, what should I call it a primordial almost like wax and you shape it into a particular form and it becomes a horse in shaping the particular form it becomes an apple, another form becomes a house everything is made out of that reality that is high low morphism. One school of thought amongst the philosophers, so some say everything comes from the high D, which in Arabic we know is the high EULA. And on the other hand, is you know, everything comes

00:54:45--> 00:54:49

from the juice layer, which we know as the atom, the indivisible

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

little piece that beyond which you cannot go. So the ancient philosophy was based upon these two principles.

00:55:02--> 00:55:08

And on those on one of those two ideas, people will build their conjecture they assumptions of reality.

00:55:09--> 00:55:24

And now what didn't wanna tell us sorry, him, Tina, we will show them, we will show them our science, you thought that you have penetrated to the lowest substratum of reality, no a time will come when you will split the atom.

00:55:26--> 00:55:41

A time will come when something that you thought was impossible, the time will come when that atom was split. And when that atom was split, something happened before the splitting of the atom. When we when when scientists and philosophers were dealing with the issue of,

00:55:42--> 00:55:43


00:55:44--> 00:56:21

physical matter as consisting of the smallest possible particle, then we came along Isaac Newton, Isaac Newton threw up certain laws, those laws of motion and laws of gravity and all of those things. These are the rules that govern the earth. And they explain how the earth works. And like that the sciences will come forward with various different theories. And in its explanation, how things work, there is a tendency towards what these things are not being governed by Malacca, who act upon the orders of a lot of data. These are physical forces that exist in the world, there is the strong force, and there is the weak force. These are names used in physics, it's not just simple

00:56:21--> 00:56:43

terms. And then there is a force of gravity, which you all understand, these are the things that create reality as we see it. Now. These are the things that create movement as we see it. Now. These are the things that create life as received as well. This what they said once upon a time, and unless it suddenly him hyah Tina, we will show them our science, when they split the atom, they discover the world inside of the atom.

00:56:44--> 00:56:47

That defeats every rule is made for themselves before

00:56:48--> 00:57:26

they thought that the the laws of Newton were absolutely Supreme. And when they discovered a world in which everything you thought is in control, vegtable can never work in a different way. what goes up must come down. If you take a ball and you're bouncing against a solid wall, it will bounce back, you suddenly discover a world in which the ball decides when it goes through the wall. And sometimes the ball decides to bounce back and you cannot predict that that is a sub atomic world, the world of quantum physics and MRI him hi Athena wafi, unforeseen, hotter, yada yada.

00:57:28--> 00:57:45

We will show them our signs, but lotto needed to one no zero. And you may know the signs can be there. A lot of that hasn't given the feet for a man those signs will not help eyes will not open up. Which brings us to another point.

00:57:46--> 00:57:48

How does faith occur?

00:57:49--> 00:57:49

How does faith

00:57:50--> 00:58:09

does faith okay in the following manner? I sat down I asked myself Wait Wait Wait Where do I come from as a human being witness mankind come from and then I consider all the evidence on site a and all the evidence as I be at the end of it, I say well, this one always that one and that is when a man is born. That is not how a man is born. A man is a gift from a mouth other side.

00:58:10--> 00:58:50

Allah decides to whom he wants to give that a man one person will see every sign in front of him. One person will see every bit of evidence powerful, convincing, persuasive, but Allah has not decided that he should have he man he will not have Eman, la tonal ayato one no zero and Camila you may know those signs and those Warner's will never How will we never be of any avail to those who do not have a man? And where does the man come from? It's a treasure which Allah gives to who he wishes. Now we go back to the early Sahaba. I said we have to learn from them. We have to learn from the how a man came about. How did it come about?

00:58:52--> 00:59:02

Did NaVi Salaam sit and argue with the Sahaba and explain to them detailed issues of physics and biology and all of those things play at all. But that's not how it happened.

00:59:04--> 00:59:14

Imagine a lot of put into the hearts. But it is such that one morning they woke up and suddenly man was in their hearts. No, that didn't happen either.

00:59:15--> 00:59:39

And effort had to be made for that. Nobody is allowed as a limit to go out and call people towards it. Once this system is in place, then Allah will put a man in the hearts of wherever he wishes. So it depends on our willingness to do what is required to first of all, hold on to what we believe what determination without any doubt. And how do we then preserve that emang

00:59:40--> 00:59:55

if anyone happens to think they're going to read so many books on creationism and I'm going to read so many books on proves of convincing people and that's how you might my Eman will become stronger. He's making a big mistake. The Snowman becomes stronger.

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

He man in its original inception.

01:00:00--> 01:00:21

was not created by any of those those means a man was created when effort was made for it, and then a lot of put it in the heart, and how was it sustained thereafter? The system that a lot of put in operation in this world, for the maintenance of a man for the improvement of a man is what

01:00:23--> 01:01:06

the system is that Mike Hamill upon what you have, what you have practice upon it constantly, he has he the law whole arena, Dido Hoda, those who might not that has given him an idea, he will increase the heat afterwards, you will increase it not by more and more, yes, sometimes all of those rational infusions into help to dispel certain misunderstandings, but to maintain it, live the life of a Muslim, live the life of a Muslim and VA by a man becomes stronger. This is the example of a Sahabi alone on the DS, here's what they did, as little as had been revealed, they would immediately practice upon me, they would immediately conveyed unto others practice upon me by being the

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

exemplary Muslims that as exemplary as they could be, and then spreading it out to others as well. And a lot of level then reproduce, the older the the man and the strengthening that preserve that faith in times of tribulation.

01:01:23--> 01:02:02

When doubts and misunderstandings come about, we repel them in with with by using all those means all those signs that a lot that I put there. We use that to repel dogs, but we don't make the mistake of thinking that's how human comes about. A man comes about by doing those our man and being in the company of those throws hearts, a man comes comes alive in our hearts. Why would the Sahaba called a Sahaba not just because they happen to live in a time of the result. But because they were in the sort of Nabi sallallahu, wasallam in his company, and in the company of those who are good, you become better yourself by associating with those that do good. By being part of a community that

01:02:02--> 01:02:38

is dedicated yourself to the doing of good, you become a better person. And by associated by cutting yourself off from that, and doing the opposite, you will find it to a man, eventually what happens what happens to me, it diminishes and it diminishes and it goes away. someone decides if I'm not going to make some art anymore, someone decides that they're not acting according to the laws of Islam anymore. And what what happens is a man starts diminishing human growth or human increases and decreases as well in relation to who we keep company with in relation to the manner in which we live our lives in relation to the extent to which we uphold the law of Allah tala, which brings me to the

01:02:38--> 01:02:39


01:02:40--> 01:02:45

idea, the next topic in this regard, one part of it was a man.

01:02:47--> 01:03:10

We believe in certain things. In that respect, we said that we have to understand that the human mind is limited in his perception. Thereafter, the manner in which his man is produced and maintained thereafter, make no mistake about how that should happen. But once Eman is misplaced, then comes the real second question, Muslim. So Islam means there's a certain number of days that you have to do.

01:03:11--> 01:03:12

Something that

01:03:15--> 01:03:18

strikes us as uncanny during this particular time is this,

01:03:19--> 01:03:40

that in the early days of Islam, when I sort of lost the loudness of lamb came? Yes, the early precepts of this Deen were matters of belief, belief in x belief in Y, believing that that was there. But at the same time, there was also there was also there were also a number of commands that you had to fulfill in your life, these that had to be done.

01:03:42--> 01:04:01

So in the doing of those deeds, this is where the society within which he found himself found, they they found that they couldn't quite, it was unconscionable to them. It was unpalatable to them, these new things that you are bringing about, we can't have these things. when ever we exist in the situation of horrible

01:04:03--> 01:04:26

where we are that strange phenomenon. And people find us unpalatable. And they find that something is wrong with the way that we conduct ourselves, be it in the way that we dress it in the way that we eat meat in the way that we speak it in the way that we do business, whatever it might be. When society decides that these people and their way of life this is not we don't want this in our society, this must go.

01:04:27--> 01:04:37

This phenomenon happens in any society where religious truth finds itself in a minority. And this was exactly what not kumbhakarna was.

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

We know however, that from the grow into the strength that was that came about in Madina munawwara and thereafter, Islam went on from one strength to another from the hill of Rashida Walker armor of man and it Manali while we allow him to the Mayor de la Basilica, thereafter to the ultimate hit of continued and we were the masters of the world and we never needed to

01:05:00--> 01:05:43

Questions about inferiority because the rest of the world probably felt inferior to us. We were the leaders, no questions were being asked. But also masala Salam said, say I will do better things will go back to the way that they were that horrible will come back and during this period of work by the same question gets asked again. Same question gets asked sometimes a question comes in this form. Get out of here we don't want you know, regenda coming out Athena, I will not I don't know female Athena. Either you leave, or you come back into our denier. You join our team. Sometimes it comes in that form. Sometimes it comes in a form of be a Muslim, by all means, but change some of the aspects

01:05:43--> 01:06:03

of your faith Don't be so rigid about these things. Change, adapt, conform to 21st century standards of humanism 21st century standards of morality 21st century standards of civilization. Change your deen accordingly. This is nothing new.

01:06:04--> 01:06:41

This has happened before. Where did it happen? In mocha mocha Rama was Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But before that didn't happen before that as well. It happened with previous nations. There's a reason why Allah tala there are many reasons I'm gonna focus on one. There's a reason why Allah Allah expects us to read the Surah Fatiha every day in Salah because it encapsulates not only then the nature of our Deen, but the interaction of this group of Huck was about the lights around it in terms of what in terms of how it interacted, how it interface in the past,

01:06:43--> 01:06:52

in what I recited previously and sort of behind the interaction in the communion between Allah and His slave, we came up to the point we are local This is where the Abdi masal

01:06:54--> 01:07:00

whatever you want I give you now, so, what do we ask at that point? Happiness and autonomy study guide us on the right path.

01:07:02--> 01:07:03

Straight Path

01:07:04--> 01:07:12

is that way it stops No, as short as Surah Fatiha is very short seven is as short as it is and In short,

01:07:13--> 01:07:32

you know you try as much brevity as possible as few words as possible. So a Serato must have usually been sufficient leave it there but a Matata doesn't leave it there. He identifies he defines was what is the Scirocco study Serato larina and Hamdani The path of those

01:07:33--> 01:07:35

upon whom You have shown your gamma

01:07:37--> 01:07:47

not the part of those now we speak about two parties greyville moto balayan not the path of those upon whom your anger came down, not the path of those who industry

01:07:49--> 01:07:57

three groups we must our path has to be the path of alladhina naantali not the model Valley him not the darling

01:07:59--> 01:08:03

at that point army so is over. So let's look at it.

01:08:04--> 01:08:06

Allah Rena and M tanimura. They

01:08:07--> 01:08:14

normally if something is not clearly identified, then we will find it unpacked in the Hadith.

01:08:16--> 01:08:33

We will find given the details of it will come in handy. A lot of us is a Kamal sada and Wayne the Quran Do you find that you start with that villatoro ROM and then you read what Joshua Jia and then you read Farsi had intercourse which is not in the Quran, but in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam it comes

01:08:34--> 01:08:58

Rasul Allah Azza wa salam eastover Allah Allah tala make hugs, but we're not given the details of how to make that will come in the Quran. We are told of the Roma Buffy Amina Rebus a way from Riba, the Hadith will come and give us the details of Riba. But there are certain things which are so important that a lot of that doesn't leave it for newbies a lot as a lump to give us the details there of this is one of them. What are those living in Ontario? And Naveen was at the theano Shahada.

01:09:00--> 01:09:11

They are these parties that the message is that the the prophets, the said the green those who accept the message of the Prophet portfolio

01:09:12--> 01:09:24

and then those who are prepared to sacrifice in order the truth may exist. And then those will after the establishment of the message by the prophets, acceptance by the city attain

01:09:25--> 01:09:34

sacrifice to the Shahada receive this was gratitude and say we will live a solid hain those are the ones whose path we should emulate.

01:09:36--> 01:09:59

We should not emulate the path of the Moto Valley or the Moto Valley, those upon whom a lot of this anger descended the Sahaba osnovy sallallahu Sallam when it came to identifying the anomaly, unless it I will identify that for you. What was the motto? Or sort of masala sauce for the Sahaba which which two groups are these? Are these perhaps the Yoda nesara then Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said Who else

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

So the history is open in front of our eyes. We can see the history. What happened in the history.

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

We tell you a bit about the history.

01:10:11--> 01:10:12

Bani Israel

01:10:13--> 01:10:22

the Jews lived in after the Egyptian period they came out and they came to live in the Holy Land. Allah tala given them that.

01:10:23--> 01:10:43

And before long, what did they start doing? They found themselves in a community of others who were making good food and shelter and everything else. So now here comes the impetus to become like others to assimilate, to become like others. They were barely out. They were barely out of Egypt.

01:10:45--> 01:11:27

Until they found a group of people, common Jaco funada phenomenon. They found a group of people tribes in the desert are worshipping idols. Fallujah, Musa, Jelena Ilan, Kamala, Amaya, Musa make for us also idols like that, naturally musala salam refused, but no sooner had Musa gone to the mountain, the samedi created an idol, and they said, No, we have to be like the people around us. Let's worship like those people worship around us. They did it then a lot on the center this punishment upon them. Eventually, after the second destruction of the temple, there was a first destruction of the temple at the hands of Baltasar Nebuchadnezzar. And then the second destruction

01:11:27--> 01:11:31

of the temple took place in the 70 ad, and then they were dispersed.

01:11:33--> 01:11:47

They will disperse in as many of them came to live in Europe. And for hundreds of years, they were living in Europe, but they were oppressed very, very badly in Europe. Eventually, they found that the only way they thought they would survive is by estimating becoming more European than the Europeans themselves.

01:11:48--> 01:11:53

They want to become more European than the European themselves. At that moment, a lot of that is is punishment upon them.

01:11:54--> 01:12:18

The Christians, a Sally ceramic, both religion, Paul of Tarsus, they after decided that in order for Dawa to spread we need to get as many people to enter this region as possible. In order for Dharma to spread, we have to adapt and assimilate. So the people of the Roman Empire were worshipping various different gods one of them installed Invictus or Sun God, where they celebrate

01:12:20--> 01:12:47

the Festival of the Sun God on the 25th of December, let's change the 24th of December to the birth of Christ. Only Christmas assimilation, integration. The Holy Day was which day to the to the bunnies, why holiday was Saturday, but to the worshipers of the Sun God, it was Sunday, so let's change it to that all with the intention of if we do this, then we can get more adherence into this Deen of ours, ancient festivals like

01:12:48--> 01:12:49


01:12:50--> 01:13:26

Easter is an ancient pagan festival, they christianized it they turn it into Christian festival. And all of those were the intention of what inshallah more people will intervene, we have to change the name for the sake of data you don't change changing. DNA is not yours to make. You've been given DNA in this form by Allah tala, sometimes we think along these lines, if we assimilate to the extent that we start changing the nature of our religion, if we start assimilating, by considering the culture of those around us, and bending certain things to be in line, bending certain things, because of the pressures that we face, and life becomes difficult. If we do that, perhaps we might

01:13:26--> 01:13:34

succeed. A lot of us is everyday he reminds you of that little moldoveanu, one of balling don't do that. Because what happens if you do that?

01:13:35--> 01:13:37

What happens when you do that the following happens when you do that.

01:13:39--> 01:14:21

We know what happened to the hood, a lot of the punishment is in the nesara went astray completely. What was the Legion of Isa became something else. Christianity Today is not the Christian of Christ is the Christianity Paul, also called Poland, Christianity, not original Christianity. So under our circumstances today, in the age of the second horiba, we are learning today, the same call is being made faster assimilate as well. to so many assimilate, there is a certain amount of assimilation that's inescapable and acceptable as well. But there's a certain amount of assimilation, which is not faster to cross those lines with the red lines of a model asahiyama with the red lines, what's

01:14:21--> 01:14:39

halal haram? We completely start changing obligations that a lot of us placed upon us. That's not for us to do. But that was a demand of that he was made of there is a lot of them as well once upon a time. What do you say no naka Annie Levy, oh, hyena he like

01:14:40--> 01:14:59

in MakerBot carvana, the co founder come to NaVi salatu salam, and said to him that try to get him try to delude him and deceive him into saying you know what? We understand we're making life difficult for you. But that's because this region that you that you have brought, it's so much different from what we have. We have no choice. I mean, we cannot accept it.

01:15:00--> 01:15:41

Lita fairy Alena hava, they come to you, they placed pleasure upon you, so that you must create something new and describe that to one, let's say this is a Muslim, invent and fabricate something new. And say that you know what, you don't have to be so particular about staying away from this head on. And doing that words, even things like change it a little bit, you know, we living in the 21st century. So changing these things a little bit with a story, Alena, you come in you forge and fabricate, and then ascribe that to a low data, where even if you do that, like the hadoo kalila, they would say that you are a friend, you're a good guy. This is the type of person that we can live

01:15:41--> 01:16:18

along with. Those pressures are being experienced throughout the Muslim world today. Throughout throughout the Muslim world, throughout the world today, those pledges are being experienced, people are feeling that pressures upon them, and things that they would normally do have they been completely free to act as they wish, had multiculturalism been a reality and not just something that lip service is paid to then Muslims would have done certain things, but now many of them are feeling pressure and account of the pressure. They are resisting from those things and starting to adapt and change here and there dressing perhaps a bit differently, acting perhaps a bit differently under the

01:16:18--> 01:16:31

pressures that exist. Be careful. That's very thin eyes it we are skies skating on there, you might gain the dunia you will completely lose your Aqua ye de la casa de la in this dunya they will come and say that your friend.

01:16:33--> 01:17:13

A lot of that goes on to say when Ola Naka at that moment, on Hammad had we not granted you steadfastness had we not granted you will set fastness human nature is such an hour NaVi salatu salam was what mininova Oh for him, he has such great concern such mercy in his heart, he did not want to see his own must suffer. He wouldn't want to see the sons and the daughters of the oma suffer under the pleasures that they are suffering wherever they are in the world today. How will they preserve their Deen under these times? How will they preserve the practice and the beliefs perhaps should they compromise to some extent? Now, using pure intellect will say no, perhaps change

01:17:13--> 01:17:50

a bit here and they chop and change a few things and fit ourselves better into society. A lot of says at that moment, there's only one thing that can save you, from a lot on a side firm firmness at a lot of ground Shahada that moment, firmness that says I'm prepared to give up much but not as dean of mine. I'm not going to change this because the Dean was on mine to make in the first place whose Dean was this is the Dean of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam which Allah gave him as an Amana to pass on to the rest of us is not for us to say that. Okay, we will meet you on a Friday anymore. Let's make another Sunday. called fast to say, it's not fast to say that Salah five times a day is too

01:17:50--> 01:18:10

difficult. Let's make it three times a day that we cannot do those changes. Ramadan is going to be long, and I know he's going to be long is going to be long and therefore let's change that as well. There are certain rules that we have no right on, we've got no authority to change and what happens when we change? What happens when we compromise upon that?

01:18:11--> 01:18:15

While sub BATNA aka la casa kita Dakedo LA,

01:18:16--> 01:18:39

Casa de la. If we had not given you this beat, then there might just have been a chance that you might have inclined that way a little bit. Why because of your human nature. You don't want difficulty upon your own ma Zhi, Zhu, Li monotone, anything that gives you difficulties weighs very heavily on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.

01:18:41--> 01:18:43

So you might have inclined but Allah gave that beat.

01:18:45--> 01:19:25

Does that the reason exists today that the beat exists. Let the beat is the comprehensive SON OF A surah la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam that the beat is that dedication have been that is passed from generation to generation from one heart to the other, that nor of Nevada is passed to the Sahaba that know that person has a habit of that RBI in that associative aspect of Islam, where Laura manto, Donna Dena, come see for more you take your deen don't take her in from anywhere because this is no day passes, that Nosal exists, the extent to which we are aware of the sphere of our bodies and the loudness of them the extent to which we are aware of Israel now, the extent to which we

01:19:25--> 01:19:43

thereafter conform and live in accordance with Asana is at the feet. While I will answer but not had we not given you that the veto Muhammad you might just have inclined. Now, let me tell you, there's a lot of effort on what would have happened if you made that crucial decision to compromise. And you had you done it.

01:19:44--> 01:19:50

Do you think it would have been a small sum that's forgivable? And one of those things, you know, it was difficult and therefore let it be.

01:19:52--> 01:19:59

hear from a lot of how serious how serious a violation of Atlanta disease, how serious this violation is.

01:20:00--> 01:20:11

You and I, and all the rest of the city and all the rest of mankind mean nothing in the sight of Allah tala, the most beloved en la today's Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,

01:20:12--> 01:20:18

the most beloved in the sight of Allah that was sort of so beloved a lot and according to his hours to him the idea of Salah

01:20:19--> 01:20:39

the one Donatella said in Nicola Holika Navin, the one who bears the lack of habibollah Allah speaking to him against that background, just listen to how Allah speaks to him. There is no kindness whatsoever in the following Ayah no kindness, a warning, sternness would ever be even

01:20:40--> 01:20:42

higher to verify.

01:20:43--> 01:21:17

If you cross this line, yes, you are my beloved Mohammed, you are the Beloved of Allah, but you cross this line, then I will descend upon you double the punishment of the dunya double the punishment of the Akira from mulata Jolla, carlina nasima, you'll find no one to help you when the punishment of Allah descends upon you. This is not me, this is not you. This is our beloved Rasul salatu salam, we've been told by Allah that Muhammad, even you do not have the right to compromise on Muslim, even you do not have the authority to change and compromise and adapt which Allah has not permitted. The pressures are there.

01:21:18--> 01:21:32

The pressures will be there. It is that time, a lot other informed on a visa lasala movie, he told us the time of horrible will come. He told us that during that time, what will happen, I'll move tamasic OBD II can be the

01:21:34--> 01:22:10

time that will come in which you're trying to hold on to your DNA it will not be easy as type two is like trying to hold on to a live code in your hands. It's difficult, you want to let it go because the sensation of your fingers burning the sensation of your skin being singed the sensation of acute pain that you have over the it every instinct is screaming at you to let go Do not let go under this time. Because if you do it, then such punishment will be sent that no one will be able to help you against it when it descends from a Matata side.

01:22:11--> 01:22:17

tribulation is part and parcel of what this world was always intended to be.

01:22:18--> 01:22:21

At the beginning of this module is an ayah was recited.

01:22:22--> 01:22:24

And if learning has given us or you

01:22:26--> 01:22:35

01:22:36--> 01:22:56

Most certainly are going to be tested. Most certainly are going to be tested and those who passed the test during this time. Where will they be to Berlin Harada. They will be the new robber who will lay the foundations of a future in which the Reno Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam will rise to the level of Leo Lila Juana de Nicola.

01:22:57--> 01:23:00

It will rise to that level it was intended to me

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

and those who fail on a llama nama hola Rena Amano mean come on Allah Mandal Manasa T. The test is there. Follow two separate who are the true believers and who are the hypocrites who paid lip service to Islam? Allah Allah man Allahu La Nina.

This is the purpose of simulation. The purpose of simulation is to separate between these two. Leah means aloha visa, Mina de wire Jalan harissa, Baba hawala, Bob Akuma, who Jamie and Josie Johanna, during this period, it's a matter of separating hobbies from good from bad and bundling all that bad together and put it one side and send it off into janam. But we will not be the first group of people who have undergone that there was a group of people on some of the time that had been tested
