Under the lame and a sheath on your legitimacy layer over here, lesson number 214. Sort of Lockman. I am number 16. To 19.

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

Yeah boonah Yeah. All my son in the hair indeed it in Turku, if it was Miss color, have bettin men called Ellen.

00:00:26 --> 00:00:56

It should be the weight of a mustard seed for the country Sahara, and it should be within a rock office somewhere where it or anywhere in the heavens. Oh fill out the or anywhere in the earth. Yet DB Allah, Allah will bring it in Allahu Allah to even COVID Indeed, Allah is subtle, and he is acquainted. Earlier we learned that, look, man, he was advising his son, isn't it?

00:00:57 --> 00:01:15

And he was advising his son. And in the middle, there was Joomla motto, which was that Allah soprano data set that was slain al insana, beware levy. Right? That a loss of data has enjoined upon the human being beautifulness gratitude towards his parents.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:21

And after mentioning that back to the advice of Look, man, to his son,

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

that he said, Yeah, when a year Oh, my dear son. And if you notice over here, the loving and affectionate style that Oh, my dear son, it was mentioned earlier. And it's mentioned here again, and it will mention later on again, many times what happens the first time we say something when very, very nice, isn't. And then what happens after some time, what happens to our loving and affectionate manner, it wears out, it doesn't continue.

00:01:52 --> 00:02:04

But we see the consistency in the loving style in the affectionate manner. It's not just at the beginning. It's not just at the middle. It's not just at the end, it's continuous, it's constant.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:39

So yeah, within a year, he says to him, that in her indeed it indeed what what does her refer to meaning that deed or that statement or that trait, anything in Turku, if it is, the coup is actually the code. If it is Miss color have button if it is the weight of a seed, even with seed min holder of a mustard, even if an action be the size of a mustard seed,

00:02:40 --> 00:02:53

even if a quality the size of a mustard seed, even if a word be the size of a mustard seed, meaning extremely tiny, extremely small, extremely insignificant.

00:02:54 --> 00:03:11

Have you ever seen a mustard seed it's extremely tiny if you haven't, next time you go to the grocery store, go and check because if you search for victory online, you won't be able to tell how small it is. The next time you go to the store, go and look for mustard seeds and look at their size they're tiny.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:22

So even action B if a word B if a trade be misspelled I have button misspell Sir kaufland What is it to be equal in weight to something

00:03:23 --> 00:03:31

and harder as I mentioned you already it's mustard seed and it's extremely tiny. And it's one of the smallest known seeds or common seeds.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:35

One of the smallest common seeds that people use.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

So Miss Carter have bitten men harder.

00:03:40 --> 00:04:04

Now first of all, the mustard seed itself is very tiny. And because of that it is huffy. Because of that it is hidden because of its tiny size. Imagine if you see a mustard seed on the table on the floor. Will you notice it on the floor? No. Sometimes what happens tiny tiny things are on the floor. We don't notice them but children they pick them up and then when they put them in their mouth and we worry that what is it that they have put in their mouths.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:46

Some is all I have bought them in harden. And now imagine this tiny mustard seed if it would be further confused Salatin if it would be in a rock, inside a rock. Just imagine a rock is not hollow from inside, isn't it? It doesn't have an opening. It doesn't have a door. It doesn't have a window. A lid? No, it's completely sealed. Now imagine inside the rock is a mustard seed. You know, sometimes they have these fossils, right? And you have this bug or something that has been preserved inside a rock or something like that for years and years. And only when it's broken or it's cracked. Then you discover it

00:04:47 --> 00:04:56

that just imagine something as tiny as a mustard seed inside a rock. The word size used for a huge rock a huge boulder that is very huge in its size.

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

Officer My Word or

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

would be anywhere in the skies what that mustard seed

00:05:04 --> 00:05:11

anywhere in the skies all fill out or that mustard seed would be anywhere in the earth.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:16

Somewhere in the skies at the highest or the lowest part of it

00:05:17 --> 00:05:28

in the most obscure place, oh fill out in the most concealed place in the earth, the highest or the lowest part of the earth. Imagine if you lose a mustard seed somewhere in the earth can you find it?

00:05:29 --> 00:05:34

You can't. But what do we see over here yet DB Allah, Allah will bring it

00:05:36 --> 00:05:42

It hasn't been said here alum holla what has been said yet TV Allah, Allah will bring it because bringing it means

00:05:44 --> 00:05:49

you know of it. And you have complete power and authority over it ability over.

00:05:50 --> 00:05:58

So yet DB Allah, Allah knows about it, and Allah will bring it forth on the Day of Resurrection, and he will call that person to account for it.

00:06:00 --> 00:06:10

In the law, her Indeed Allah He is not leave he is settled and he is hobby he is fully aware very well acquainted leave us from the room Petrus lamb for

00:06:12 --> 00:06:14

and the name of Allah subhanaw taala leaf has two meanings.

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

First of all, one was very kind, because look is to be kind to be generous, to be polite to be friendly. So that leaf has one was very kind, very affectionate, very generous.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:37

And leave secondly also means one who is extremely subtle, one who knows about the find realities of something as well.

00:06:38 --> 00:07:00

Because look for also is to be very subtle to realize the minutus details of something to know the minute is details of something. So he is Luckily, he knows very well. And at the same time, he's also very kind and he is babied, he is all aware he is very well acquainted of its location, nothing at all is hidden from him. Nothing too big, nothing too small, nothing at all.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:03

What do we see over here?

00:07:04 --> 00:07:13

That Look man, he is explaining the knowledge of Allah, to his son with an example

00:07:14 --> 00:07:19

that Allah has knowledge is so vast, and it is so complete.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:22

And it includes everything,

00:07:23 --> 00:07:36

even the minute list of things, even the most hidden things, even the things that are hidden inside others, and even the things that are up in the skies, and down in the earth, anywhere in the skies anywhere in the earth.

00:07:37 --> 00:07:44

No matter how deeply buried they are, or no matter how exposed they are. Allah subhanaw taala knows about everything.

00:07:45 --> 00:07:56

So he is explaining to his son, about the power of Allah, the knowledge of Allah, that nothing at all can be hidden from Allah.

00:07:57 --> 00:08:05

And when a person he says something, no matter how small of a word it may be, whether he whispers it,

00:08:07 --> 00:08:28

or he says it in his heart, or he says it out loud, does Allah not know about it? Of course he does. If a person does an action, even if it's extremely insignificant that other people don't even notice it, perhaps it was a glance, perhaps it was a smile. Perhaps it was a word that he wrote, a loss of panda knows of it.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:39

Any trait, any quality, anything that a person has any characteristic that a person has, it could be hidden, other people have no idea they can never figure out.

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

But Allah subhanaw taala knows about it.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:54

And if a person he has this conviction, that nothing at all is hidden from Allah, no deed, no word, no characteristic, then what will that lead to?

00:08:55 --> 00:08:58

That will lead to sincerity in action.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:15

Because a person will know that my lord knows everything. He knows whatever I do. So a person will not expect praise from people. He will not expect acknowledgement from people, nor will he waste his deed by showing off.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:35

Because many times, what do we want that whatever we say whatever we do, we want our deeds to be acknowledged. We want them to be noticed. We want them to be appreciated. And if people don't appreciate our deeds, what happens? We feel very discouraged. We feel we're not going to do it again.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:47

But if a person has this yaqeen that no matter what I do, even if no person sees it, Allah knows about it yet DB Allah and Allah is lovely, he is sky and

00:09:48 --> 00:09:58

he will see it. And if my deed is worth it, you will accept it and he will reward it and he's hobby. Then this makes a person completely indifferent to people's appreciation.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:21

Many times what happens children, they're encouraged to do more how that anything that they do. Immediately we praise them, good job. And children anything they do they say Good job to themselves as well. And if you don't say Good job to them, what do they want, they will look at you will wait for you to smile, acknowledge, and only then they will continue.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:28

Now, okay, this is something that say when children are young, but what happens? We never stop it.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:33

So children as they grow older, they will not do anything unless their deeds are acknowledged.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:46

What do children need, they need to realize that Allah sees me, he acknowledges my actions, and he will reward me. When other people see, or they don't see.

00:10:48 --> 00:10:56

We see that the first thing that laquan taught his son was what led to shake the law. Don't do shake with Allah, and now he's instilling in his son, the fear of of

00:10:58 --> 00:11:03

that whether or not I see you whether or not somebody else sees you, who's watching you, unless.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:16

So when a person has is your thing that Allah is watching me, first of all, what's the benefit that it makes him indifferent to people's praise to people's appreciation. And this is extremely necessary.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:51

We praise our children so much, we boost their ego, so much, we make them so arrogant from inside, that if people don't appreciate them, they get angry. If they don't get a gift, they get upset. If they're not thanked for the little things they do, they get very discouraged. If they don't get praised for what is their job, then they get very upset. This is not right. When can a person become free, indifferent to other people's appreciation when he knows Allah is watching, and I'm doing it for Allah.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:59

Whether I do it in a closed room, or do it out in the open, anybody finds out about it, anybody does not find out about it.

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

And the second benefit of this is that when a person has yaqeen, that Allah is watching me alone knows about everything, then this really strengthens a person's character and personality.

00:12:14 --> 00:12:22

That he will not do anything wrong in front of people. And he will also not do anything wrong. in secret behind people when alone.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

Typically, what do we tell our children?

00:12:26 --> 00:12:29

I'm watching you, I'll find out,

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

isn't it?

00:12:31 --> 00:12:55

And we send one person after children one person after a sibling than the other person. And then we try to put so many restrictions on them, and so many people to watch them to guard them to shepherd on them. But what do we see over here? If a child has this realization, my lord is watching me. Yes, my mom is not watching me but Allah is watching me, then this will make him careful. This will make him a conscious person.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:08

Typically what happens? We make our children afraid. Look, look that lady's looking at you. That man's watching. behave well sit properly. Don't talk like this. Finish your food what will they say?

00:13:09 --> 00:13:28

But what do we see over here whose fear is look man instilling the fear of a loss upon data. That no matter what I do, no matter what I say wherever Allah is watching me for my yarmulke Miss Carla the latian hiring Yahoo will may or may miss Potter rotten Sharma

00:13:30 --> 00:13:35

whether it's something tiny, a good deep, Allah, He knows it and he will show it to you.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:42

And if it's something evil as very, very tiny, Allah subhanaw taala. Again, we'll show it to you, you will see it.

00:13:44 --> 00:14:20

So, we see that this awareness that Allah subhanaw taala is watching me this really strengthens a person's personality. It makes him a strong person, it makes him a conscious person. It makes him a responsible person. And it makes him hopeful of the reward of Allah and makes him fearful of the punishment of Allah. That Allah subhanaw taala he is leave he is immensely appreciative. He does not waste the reward of any person and his hobby. That if I do something wrong, nobody finds out about it, who knows? A lot of penalties.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:39

And you know what has been said over here yet, db Allah, Allah will bring it no matter how much you try to hide it, no matter how much you try to conceal it, what will happen? Allah will expose it, he will reveal it, how sometimes it's dunia, but definitely definitely in the hereafter.

00:14:40 --> 00:15:00

Because the day of judgment was shy, he didn't want my shoes. One of the meanings is the chair had meaning the observer and my showed one who is witnessed. Shared is a person and my shoulder all of his deeds. So all of the deeds that a person has been hiding in the dunya all of them will be exposed on the Day of Judgment how that

00:15:00 --> 00:15:09

When the deeds will be weighed, when they will be put on the scales, and even before that, at the time of all those deeds that a person has been hiding, they will be exposed on that day.

00:15:10 --> 00:15:23

We learned from a Hadith, that in Muslim mother, if one of you should perform a deed in Iraq with no holes in it, if one of you should perform a deed in a rock with no holes in it, now, just imagine you're in in an elevator, it's completely closed,

00:15:24 --> 00:15:35

no camera even completely closed from all sides. If you do something there, say something over there, then what will happen? Allah will make that known to the people even

00:15:36 --> 00:16:21

Allah will make that known. You cannot hide it, you cannot conceal it. And many, many times it happens that people try to conceal things, their actions, their words, sometimes for years even but eventually what happens? eventually what happens? It gets exposed. Right? Recently, I was reading one of the newspapers that this person in Japan he had killed and raped a British girl, and he hide his identity, he caught his lip and he underwent so much plastic surgery so that he could not be identified. But after many, many years, he was caught. He was identified. No matter what people do, do hide their deeds, what happens eventually, even in the dunya they are exposed, the reality is

00:16:21 --> 00:16:28

exposed and if it's not exposed in this dunya definitely it will be exposed in the hereafter. Because yet db humla.

00:16:29 --> 00:17:08

And this is not something difficult for us to understand today yet deeming Allah, that whether something is hidden deep, or it is up in the skies, or anywhere in the earth, unlock and bring it it's not difficult for us to understand today. Why? Because with one click, what can you do, you can easily roam around the whole world, you go to Google Earth, and you can go to any street any road, isn't it? You can go and see so many things. People have put surveillance cameras. So yeah, TV Hello. So in a way, he's making his son extremely conscious of Allah subhanaw taala that you are under surveillance, you are under surveillance. And when a person knows that he's under

00:17:08 --> 00:17:47

surveillance, how conscious he becomes, is it immediately people, you know, their expression changes the way they sit, the way they stand, the way they walk, it changes. Sometimes people are driving and all of a sudden if a cop car goes by, what perfect drivers they become. Everybody has their seatbelts on. Everybody's sitting properly. And unfortunately, our children who do we frightened them from sit in your place and put your belt on otherwise the cop will come isn't this is what we scare them off. This is when we scare them off. But they need to realize that no matter where I am, whether at home or out, Allah is watching.

00:17:48 --> 00:17:54

And I'm supposed to do right because Allah is watching, I'm supposed to stay away from wrong because Allah is watching.

00:17:55 --> 00:18:06

And this leads to exam, isn't it? Because what is your son and that was a luck and nakazato exam cannot come unless and until with this realization,

00:18:07 --> 00:18:27

because this is what makes a person behave properly, isn't it? Otherwise, you will follow his naps. this regard. Other people completely disregard the obligations, the prohibitions and just follow his naps. What brings your son the realization that Allah is watching me.

00:18:29 --> 00:18:45

This is why we see the Lockman is known as Look man, Hakeem that look at the way he's advising his son in such a non threatening way, in such a neutral way. He's not instilling the fear of Allah by telling him if you do wrong, Allah will throw you in hellfire. What is he telling him?

00:18:46 --> 00:18:53

That no matter what it is in the rock, somewhere in the earth somewhere in the sky, Allah knows, and he will bring it forth.

00:18:54 --> 00:19:10

He's not saying I was watching you. And if I can't see you, He will punish you. Nothing like that. He's not threatening him, isn't it? So it's a very non threatening style. And this is when we see that advice becomes effective.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:22

And if we keep threatening children, this will happen that will happen. You'll get punished you get thrown in the fire. Then eventually what happens is they're so used to that threat that it doesn't affect them anymore. It doesn't affect them at all.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:39

Yeah, when a year. Oh my son, okay Miss salata. Establish the prayer. establish the Salah. What more will maruf and enjoy what is right? One Heron in Mancha and forbid What is wrong?

00:19:40 --> 00:19:46

And then what's better allameh A Saba and be patient over whatever befalls you.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:54

And remember that in Nevada common asmin or more indeed, all that is of the matters requiring determination.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

More advice, more instruction, more rows, that yagoona

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

You're all my dear son, again, you see living style. He doesn't become a bit strict or harsh over here, loving style. Because once children know that my parents love me, then what will happen?

00:20:15 --> 00:20:28

What will happen? It will develop trust, and then children will listen to their parents. We keep telling our children, when they do something wrong, you're so bad, you're so bad. And what will happen eventually children will think they are bad. And they show it.

00:20:30 --> 00:21:05

And with this mother, she was once telling me that I always tell my children, you're so good. You can't do this. You're a good boy. You're a good girl. And then children really feel like that, that yes, I'm a good person. This is not something that I do. Right? So yeah, when they hear Oh, my dear son, okay, Mr. Latta, established us Allah. Praise Allah, though hate, fear of Allah. And then after that is common to saw that worship. And notice how he tells him to establish the sort of the hook on the command is being given in singular form. It's very direct.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:14

Because sometimes what happens we get very general instructions. It's not people should pray, what has been said, you should pray.

00:21:15 --> 00:21:53

Because sometimes we're very general, in what we tell our children, you know, people should be doing this, and people should be doing that, and people should not do that. But how is he telling his children, you should pray? You should pray, you're supposed to pray, this is an obligation on you. So this is how we need to address the important topics that address them directly. Don't generalize them. Don't say we Muslims are supposed to do this. What should you say to him? What should you say to her to children who are yours and children under your care? You should be doing this? This is what you're required to do.

00:21:54 --> 00:21:57

So yeah, within a year, a famous letter.

00:21:58 --> 00:22:03

And when can a person tell his or her child to praise Allah?

00:22:04 --> 00:22:05

When they pray themselves?

00:22:07 --> 00:22:11

If you notice over here, the father is telling the son to do a comma to salah

00:22:12 --> 00:22:14

and for men what is a comical surah to pray Where?

00:22:15 --> 00:22:26

In the masjid when can a father tells his son to go pray in the masjid or pray in congregation? At least if not in the masjid? How when when he prays like that himself?

00:22:27 --> 00:22:33

So yeah, when a year akima salata, what more Bill Maher roofie and command that which is good.

00:22:34 --> 00:22:45

Praise Allah, to strengthen yourself to do your own Tobia and then command that which is good to others to reform others, to help them become righteous as well.

00:22:46 --> 00:22:49

Wonder Anil munkar and also forbade from that which is wrong.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:55

If you notice over here, at first, the rights of a loss of hands are dimensioned.

00:22:56 --> 00:23:00

And off the rights of a law, which is the most important one, your commenters Allah.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:34

And then don't just worry about yourself. Also be concerned about others, tell them to do good as well. And if they do something wrong, stop them as well. Be responsible. Be alert, be conscious, don't be self centered. Don't just be concerned about yourself but also be concerned about who other people who are around you. Because a person cannot become righteous, he cannot become steadfast on righteousness unless and until what others around him are also doing the same.

00:23:35 --> 00:23:44

So pray yourself, and also what mobile maruf also tell other people to do good. tell other people to pray as well as well.

00:23:45 --> 00:23:56

And if other people are doing something wrong, don't turn a blind eye to it, stop them. And you will find difficulties in doing this. Therefore was there Allah or sabak Be patient over the difficulty that reaches you.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:14

And in Nevada come in asthma, whoo. This is of those matters for which determination is required. What is the liquid refers to all that has been mentioned over here is common to sweater American model of Nia and Mancha sub This is of those deeds min asmall omoove.

00:24:15 --> 00:24:16

What does it mean?

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

determination when a person has made up their mind to do something, that no matter what happens now, I have to do it.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:38

You don't like for example, when you're praying Sunnah. You say Allahu Akbar. Your phone is ringing. You break your sign correspond to the wall. Do you know why? you've made up your mind you have to print you have to pray.

00:24:39 --> 00:24:59

All of a sudden you feel like eating Will you go eat? No. If you like sitting down if you like lying down, will you do that? No. Just do Allahu Akbar. And that's it. Is it everything else is blocked off. This is what awesome is that once you've made up your mind, you have to do something. You are fully determined

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

You do it, no matter what difficulty what challenge comes before you, you don't get stopped because of it, you don't get derailed because of it, you stay focused on your work.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:22

This is why it has been said that for either acenta fatawa Corolla, that once you have made up your mind, then what should you do rely upon a loss.

00:25:24 --> 00:25:37

So, an alumina is a Florida asmall omoove means those matters, those necessary things regarding one must have firm determination.

00:25:38 --> 00:25:42

If a person does not have determination, he will not be able to do any of these things.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:53

If a person does not have firm resolve, he will not be able to pray consistently, he will not be able to tell other people to do good, he will not be able to stop them from wrong and he will not be able to do suffer.

00:25:55 --> 00:25:56

You understand?

00:25:57 --> 00:26:04

to do all of these four things, what do you need? determination? And without determination, you end up nowhere.

00:26:06 --> 00:26:18

Now, we see over here that in the advice that is mentioned in this ayah that look man, he is awakening his son's consciousness. Right? He's making him an alert person.

00:26:19 --> 00:26:23

He's encouraging him to live a conscious life and alert life.

00:26:24 --> 00:26:27

And what does he start that with the command to pray?

00:26:28 --> 00:26:32

Because a person who prays His heart is alive?

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

Isn't it?

00:26:35 --> 00:27:19

A famous letter, lyrically. He remembers our last panel data, when a person would remember a lot he will be a conscious person, he will be conscious about his surroundings and such a person what will he do? He will command that which is right and forbid that which is evil. Because in the salata, then her angle fascia you will Mancha it's not possible that a person who prays Salah consistently finds other people not praying and he doesn't care about them, find that people are doing something wrong and he does not care No. A person who will pray definitely his heart will become conscious and alive. He will never become indifferent to people never at all.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:46

And when a person will do Urban maruf now here in Mancha, what will that lead to? difficulties, right. But that difficulty will not make him give up. He will have to have sub, which is why Saba has mentioned What do we learn what's their you know, the summary was Salah. This is why a comment the Salah is so necessary. If you don't pray, you cannot tell other people to do good. You know, you can't

00:27:47 --> 00:27:58

and you cannot stop them from doing wrong. Because what will give you the confidence to have suffered the ability to have some Salah was there enough, somebody will center

00:27:59 --> 00:28:20

and whatever challenges that a person does face in telling other people, they will not make him lose his determination either. Why would I still have fun Nicola rinella up in the Delica miasma, omo that is of those matters for which you need determination. Other people should not make you so weak and light that they say one thing to you and that said you lose all your confidence.

00:28:21 --> 00:28:40

But on the other hand, a person who does not pray, whose heart is not alive, whose heart is heedless, then this person is heedless about himself. And he's also heedless about others. You understand? The life of the heart begins with what you call me the Salah.

00:28:41 --> 00:29:14

Many times what happens that if a person asks, does this person pray? What will they say? Oh, you're being so strict. How is it possible you find no person there who prays five times a day? No, it is possible to find people five times a day. This is one of the basic things basic requirements. Because a person who prays salah and a person who does not praise Allah, they're completely different. One who prays is conscious about his actions, about his words about other people about the deen and one who does not pray. He doesn't care.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:18

He doesn't care. They're completely different people.

00:29:19 --> 00:29:40

And this is something extremely important that a person is concerned about his well being and also the well being of others because you might say you should only focus about yourself Why are you worried about others? Whether they pray or not whether they do good or they do bad? Why are you worried about them? There is something very important why? If you keep yourself clean, and your surroundings are dirty, will you not get dirty?

00:29:41 --> 00:29:55

Will you not? Of course. Like for example if you go to shower in a washroom that's extremely filthy, extremely filthy. What do you want to shower there? No, you get worried that by the time I finish showering, I'll perhaps be more dirty.

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

Isn't it so

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

so you clean

00:30:00 --> 00:30:03

yourself and you also have to clean your surroundings.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:09

This is why Akuma salata what mobile maruthi 101.

00:30:11 --> 00:30:24

And many times what happens, we tell our children do good, be good, pray. But what happens? If their friends are not like that? Will they be able to pray? Will they be able to do good? Impossible.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:43

So children need to have this realization that I need to do good myself. And I need to tell other people to also do good. And only a confident child can do this, isn't it? Only a confident child can do this, he can only tell other people do good and stop them from wrong.

00:30:44 --> 00:31:03

And if you notice, ugliness for that is related to personal life. And what would have been Murphy 101 code that is related to what communal life societal life and that is necessary because a person cannot live in a society selfishly. And this work, it requires a lot of effort, and a person must have a lot of support.

00:31:04 --> 00:31:21

Many times we'll see that people when it comes to the they think that salah and fasting in the month of Ramadan, they are extremely important going for ombre once in a while. That's it. And when it comes to telling other people about the deen, that's not our responsibility. That's not something that we should be concerned about.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:27

But what do we see over here? A perfect balance. Both things are necessary.

00:31:29 --> 00:31:42

You tell your child Pray, pray, pray, and you don't tell other people to pray? What will happen? Will they not affect your children? Will they not, of course they will, they will definitely affect your children.

00:31:43 --> 00:32:32

So if you want your family to be good to be on the right path, then you also have to spread this goodness, you also have to spread this side. You cannot become selfish and self centered. When it comes to Deen. You have to be concerned about others, you have to create an environment in which you can grow, your family can grow, your children can grow. And if you're only concerned about yourself, believe me you cannot grow. This is why we see that even within a household within a family. If a person alone is struggling to pray, nobody else is praying along with them. How long will they be able to continue? Not for very long, unless and until other people join them, isn't it? Because you

00:32:32 --> 00:32:47

have to go somewhere. You're the only person who wants to pray at that time. Other people I know, let's go let's go. We're getting late. Will your Salah knocker affected? Of course it will. So where this is necessary in a family, it's also necessary in the community.

00:32:48 --> 00:32:54

And many times why is it that people don't like telling other people? Why? What's so difficult about it?

00:32:55 --> 00:33:22

Because the fear of getting a negative reaction, they will not listen. And this is a reality when you tell people do something good. Some people will listen other people, they will not listen, isn't it? But just because some people will not listen to you know what you need at that time. Some was better allameh or Saba Be patient over whatever hits you. Now this is general and also specific in the context

00:33:23 --> 00:33:54

was better allameh azabache specific in the context what that when you tell other people do good and you faced opposition? What should your behavior be? of sub? But in the general sense, any difficulty that comes your way? What should be your behavior of Subbu? What are the difficulties in your naps in your bed than in your mind? Anything that you are hurt, you're tired, you're exhausted, you have a lot of work, somebody's been harsh to you. What should you do that time sober. And in their early commitment as normal?

00:33:55 --> 00:34:04

It is those matters, which require a lot of determination that only those people can do this work who have a strong willpower, which work

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

telling other people to do good spreading hate.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:14

Because you see when it comes to doing good yourself, who do you have to fight against this yourself?

00:34:15 --> 00:34:19

And it's relatively easier to do that, compared to telling other people.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:40

So what do you need over there? determination, strong willpower, that whether people listen or not, whether they laugh at me, or they make fun of me, whatsoever, I have to tell them, it's my obligation. And who can do it a person who realizes that this is my obligation

00:34:41 --> 00:34:59

that salvation success lies in this. I cannot be successful until unless I tell other people and isn't it isn't this reality? What have we learned into lotto? Well, what have we learned throughout the Quran? That it's our obligation to spread this higher if we limit it to ourselves?

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

Then we're not giving the hug.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:47

Unfortunately today, what do people think that mind your own business? And this is what they promote as well? Isn't it so that you do what you have to do? And let me do whatever I have to do. You keep concerned with your problems and let me deal with mine, don't interfere in my life. Don't tell me what to do. And don't stop me from doing what I'm doing, isn't it? This is what we think is the right way. But this is not the right way. Because if you don't stop other people from wrong, then that wrong is also going to affect you. It's also going to affect your family. It's also going to hit you What do we learn what the whole fitness thing led to so you Ben and Latinas, Allah woman

00:35:47 --> 00:35:48

come Casa

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

that fear the trial that will not only strike those people who have done wrong, know, it may also strike those people who have not done wrong.

00:36:01 --> 00:36:02

So how should you fear it?

00:36:03 --> 00:36:05

by stopping other people from doing

00:36:06 --> 00:36:10

because they continue to do wrong, then the consequences will also hit you.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:33

But we fear sarcastic remarks, we fear, mockery and harsh words, but this fear should not get in the way. It should not stop us from doing what we have to do, it should not stop us from telling other people. Because if a person is stopped by just the words of other people, that does he have any determination? Nothing, no determination.

00:36:35 --> 00:36:45

You see, when it comes to the deen, whether it is practicing the deen yourself or telling other people about them, you need us. You need determination.

00:36:46 --> 00:36:57

Because sometimes your body will not cooperate. Sometimes your family will not cooperate. And sometimes the world around you will not cooperate. But doesn't mean you stop.

00:36:59 --> 00:37:17

Whatever is important is important. Like for example, I'm amazed at how people who go to work, who take their work seriously. What happens to them, even if they're sick and exhausted. And there's a snowstorm outside, what will they do? They will still go to work,

00:37:18 --> 00:37:30

whether it means not going to their child's doctor's appointment. Many times fathers they never go to their children's doctor's appointments, why they're at work. The mother is taking the child every time

00:37:31 --> 00:37:47

isn't it? Sometimes the woman herself she's expecting and she's going to the appointments herself, the husband he cannot come why he's busy at work. What do you need at that time? determination? What gives you determination

00:37:48 --> 00:37:51

when you realize your work is important, it is necessary.

00:37:53 --> 00:38:03

So when you realize that our been marked off, now here in Mancha is necessary, then no matter what you will do, it will give you the determination, it will give you the confidence.

00:38:05 --> 00:38:23

If you think about the work that people do for dunia, why will they go even if they're sick, even if there is a terrible snowstorm? Because you need to survive in dystonia, isn't it? What about surviving in the era? What about surviving in the ACA? Isn't that something that we should be concerned about? Of course.

00:38:24 --> 00:38:43

So what do we see over here that Salah hon maruf nahi. Mancha, Saba over difficulty who can do it? A person who has firm determination, everybody cannot do it. Only those people who have determination. So it's as though he's telling his son, that you have to have determination.

00:38:44 --> 00:38:51

And if I'm telling you to do this, I know that you can be determined I know that you can have as normal.

00:38:53 --> 00:39:03

And this is just like mountain climbing. Can everybody do it? mountain climbing? Can everybody do it? No. What do you need to do that determination.

00:39:04 --> 00:39:09

Just the other day somebody was telling me about how one of their relatives is

00:39:10 --> 00:39:37

deportation officer. So any illegal immigrants are someone they're responsible for finding them and take them out of the country and travel with them and you know, leave them and the kind of work that they do. It involves a lot of risk, a lot of risk. And their family is concerned that Why are you doing this? Just leave this work, do something else. But he's like, no, I love this work. It's so challenging.

00:39:38 --> 00:39:49

It's challenging. This is why I love to do this work. And I was thinking at that point that anything that you like, no matter how challenging it is, no matter how difficult it is, you will do it.

00:39:50 --> 00:39:59

Anything that you find is important. You will do it. Just like mountain climbing. Right. If you want to do it no matter how difficult it is, no matter how risky it is.

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

You could slip and that said your backbone could break. You could lose your life. But what is it that gives people the strength to do it? determination? Isn't it? confidence, the end result? Similarly, if a person wants high, the Rajasthan the hereafter high ranks in the year after dislike a person wants to get to the top of the mountain, what does he need to do?

00:40:25 --> 00:40:45

effort? What does he need? determination? And he needs to keep going. You might wonder, what's the point of climbing the mountain? Can you not see the same unit victory? Of course, you can just go to helicopter and see. But it's different. It's a different experience. What you can see from the top of the mountain, that view you cannot get from anywhere else.

00:40:46 --> 00:40:59

And you cannot enjoy that you either. Unless and until you've climbed the mountain yourself. So determination is required to get to Jenna. In Nevada come in.

00:41:04 --> 00:41:05

Yeah, morning.

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


00:41:17 --> 00:41:17


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


00:41:22 --> 00:41:26

fees, to fill out the TV

00:41:32 --> 00:41:35


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


00:41:59 --> 00:42:19

In the middle. One thing that's extremely important is that many things that we tell our children to do that we encourage young people to do they are difficult. And when they say that this is extremely difficult, sometimes we say no, no, it's not difficult. You're just thinking it's hard. It's not actually hard. But what is the more realistic approach?

00:42:20 --> 00:42:28

That Yes, it's hard. It's difficult. In Nevada recommend as much or more. But this is why there's so much reward, isn't it?

00:42:29 --> 00:42:53

So if you tell your children, yes, this is something that's hard, but you have to do it. Because only then will you be successful, then this is a much better way than undermining the effort that they have to put in and belittling the work that they're doing in a delicate manner as well. Acknowledge the difficulty, but at the same time, encourage them, motivate them with the reward that's at the end.

00:42:55 --> 00:43:03

Also, one thing I want you to notice over here is that he is telling his son, that what motivated Marvel when her and in Monaco,

00:43:04 --> 00:43:11

what do we think? whose responsibility is it? To do a little bit maruf? When he and and Monica, who's supposed to do it?

00:43:13 --> 00:43:27

Typically, what do we think, adults? Isn't it? their young children? They have nothing to do with this. It's the scholars who do it. And if children if ever they do correct us, which they do many times, what do we say? Oh, you don't know,

00:43:29 --> 00:43:31

isn't it but this is not the right way.

00:43:32 --> 00:43:47

Even children should be encouraged to do um, Urban mooroopna here in Hong Kong, because only when they're conscious as children, then their consciousness will grow as they grow. And as they grow older, then they will have the confidence to tell people

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

you understand.

00:43:50 --> 00:44:06

And when they do correct us when they do encourage us, we should accept what they're telling us. Not telling them Oh, you don't know what you're talking about. Because we don't like to admit our mistakes before children, before little children, even if they're not ours, if they're little siblings. We don't like to acknowledge our mistakes before.

00:44:08 --> 00:44:50

We see that there should be a balance in instilling the fear and instilling the love of Allah in children. And in the advice of Luqman Hakim, that in Allahu Allah to even hobby, there is both love and fear leave that he is kind, he is affectionate, he will appreciate your efforts and hobbies he knows he knows very well about what you do. So we see what a good balance there is of both love and fear because sometimes we go to extremes either we focus only on love, or we focus only on fear. There should be moderation there should be balance both are necessary. Because then children will want it is Allah like this, this Allah dislike this, and then they want to do it. Many of you might

00:44:50 --> 00:44:54

be thinking we don't have any children. It's not relevant to us. How can you relate this to yourself?

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

My question that you might be thinking that you don't have any children

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

So how can you apply this in your life?

00:45:04 --> 00:45:15

So children who are around you, whether they're your siblings, or they're your younger cousins, or perhaps you're babysitting someone or you're volunteering to teach a class or children. So these are things that you can be focusing on

00:45:16 --> 00:45:35

in the early coming as well. modelica also refers to Salah in order to praise Allah. What do you need determination? Isn't it? Because sometimes you're the only person or sometimes you're so busy in your work, you're so occupied, that you literally have to pull yourself out.

00:45:36 --> 00:45:42

You have to pull yourself away. You have to force yourself What do you need at that time as well.

00:45:44 --> 00:45:55

So whether it is praying for Allah, or it is telling other people's do good, stopping them from wrong or doing suburb, you need determination and without determination, you cannot get anywhere.

00:46:14 --> 00:46:14


00:46:25 --> 00:46:26


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