What Yeah, I'm in uc san Medina theological. And there came from the farthest end of the city. Amen. And how did he come? Yes, he was running. What did he say? He said, Yeah, call me oh my people, it tervuren mousseline follow the messengers. Now this is going on this conversation between the people and the messengers, that people are opposing the messengers, threatening them, and the messengers, they are conveying the message continuously, fearlessly. And in the meantime, what happens? A man comes from the farthest end of the city XOR oxides from the ruthless password. Yeah. And what is up Sony, for the past that which is very far, that which is more distant. So ups on Medina T, farthest
part of the city, meaning from a very far off place in the city?
And who is this person legit on a man? And this man, he had believed in these messengers, but he had not proclaimed his belief. But how did he come? Yes, sir. Running with a hairy face. When did he come after he heard that there are these three people who claim to be messengers, and this is what they're saying. And this is how the people are reacting.
So he came running Pilar. He said, Yeah, call me Oh, my people are more saline follow the messengers.
If you look over here, no matter how much of a minority you are, Allah subhanaw taala has helped welcome.
If you think about it, the messengers, how many were they initially due only to Allah subhanaw taala help them How would a third messenger
they will rejected all three of them. A loss of panel data, help them with a believer, another person.
So look at the way Allah subhanaw taala defends his servants, he helps his servants. Send everything you are alone.
Sometimes we don't do something simply because we're the only ones doing it.
But never stop just because you're the only one. You're the only one. However, remember, Allah will help you. He will support you, he will aid you from where you cannot even imagine.

and how does he come? Yes are running. And what does he say? On a year komeito. mousseline Oh my people follow the messengers.
It's amazing how these messengers were right before these people. But these people don't recognize the messengers. And there's a man all the way at the other end of the city. He hasn't seen the messengers, but he recognizes the messengers. He believes in them.
It tomorrow he continues, he says, follow, follow Whoo, Malaya alaikum, agilon, those who do not ask you for any agile, or who move to Dune, and they are themselves rightly guided?
Meaning Why should you not follow these messengers? After all, if you look at them, who are they?
First of all, they are man, those who lay us lucam. They're not asking you for any reward. They're not asking you for any money, in return for delivering the message to you. All that they have said to you is warmer or leyna. A lava lava will be there in fact givers. They're here to give something to you. They're not here to take from you. Malaria is an add on. And on top of that we moved on and they're rightly guided.
If you look at them, what are the same? whatever they're saying makes perfect sense.
analyze a message it makes perfect sense. Why should you not believe in them? Why should you not follow them? Well move the dune.
Earlier we learned that the people why did they deny the messengers? What was the reason that they do
that you're human beings? Because you're human beings, we're not going to accept you we're not going to follow you.
But we see that all of the messengers, yes, they were human beings but their honesty, their trustworthiness, it was very visible to people very clear to the people. And Allah subhanaw taala. He did not send His messengers without any beginner right?
Whenever he sent messengers he sent along with them by unit and by unit includes clear proofs, clear arguments, miracles, right? Which prove the truthfulness of the messenger. So this man, he says, well, who knows? They don't they're rightly guided.
These messengers have by you know, if you look at what they're saying, it makes perfect sense. Think about it, they're calling you towards,
towards Allah subhanaw taala. Are they calling you to themselves? No. Okay. What are they saying to you? They're prohibiting evil. Right? They are telling us not to do a slough. Is that something bad? That's not something that it's something good. They're telling us to not do bad things. That's something. And if you look at it, they're not asking for anything in return. They're not seeking anything. They're not seeking any praise. But they're selflessly conveying the message to you. So why should you not follow them? Why should you not follow these messengers?
So look at this man, he figures out the truthfulness, the honesty of these messengers, how? By analyzing their message, and by analyzing their personalities as well.
That they are rightly guided themselves, and they're not asking for anything in return. So why not follow him? We should follow him.
It Toby Ruffalo these messengers.
No, if you look at this person,
this man who came he's also worthy of being reflected on his character, his message the way he came, that first of all, we see that he came to his people. How
running? Yes, sir.
He wasn't a sitting there thinking should I go? should not go there tomorrow. They often forget it. No.
As soon as he learned, as soon as he found out, what did he do, he ran, he did not remain sitting. He did not just believe, but he raced out, running in order to tell other people as well.
This is called fast American, high res towards good deeds Don't delay.
Because if you delay, then what will happen, you will lose the opportunity,
isn't it so that opportunity will slip out of your hands. Because what you can do now, you cannot do five minutes from now it's not the same.
Even five minutes can make a huge difference. 10 minutes can make a huge difference.
So whenever a person has some opportunity to do something good, you should do it immediately.
But what happens with us, we have an idea, we have a thought. And we sit and think and ponder and reflect and call and discuss. And and all that discussing and reflection, the opportunity has gone, isn't it. So you have to take action immediately. If Allah has given you the thought of doing something good. Do it right now.
Don't delay. Because if you delay, you might never be able to do never. And you might have experienced this yourself as well, that so many times you have the opportunity to do something good. If you don't do it right away, you just lose that opportunity. Because we think, oh, when I come back, I can do it. Next time I can do it. Right. And if you don't do it right, then you will never be able to do it. Because health is not in our control. Life and Death not in our control. Circumstances not in our control.
This trip of mine, typically what happens is that whenever I travel, I keep the first few days for whatever you know I have gone to do. I for instance for this trip, the verb was was very bad. I thought Ramadan, exclusively worship, that's it. And after read in shall I'm gonna go and buy whatever I have to. Because whenever I go That said, I'm always interested in going to bookstores and looking at all the different different books that are out there. Because what you find over there, you don't find over here. You don't even find online. So you have to go to those bookstores and see what's there.
So, a few times what happened was that on our way to the heroine to the mustard, you know, there are some bookstores, I stopped by and bought a few CDs and a few things that I saw, but I didn't have the time to go inside the stores and look okay, this is a new book and this was a good book. I thought I'll do it later, later later. Because I wanted to spend you know, every woman that I had in doing what I went there to do, but after eat, I fell ill and when I fell ill there was no way that I could go so I thought of it at that
moment that if I had not bought the CDs that I wanted to buy, and the specific books that I wanted to buy at that time, I might never have been able to buy them. Right? Because you're only there for a few days, right? You can't say, Okay, I'll just go tomorrow, because you might not be able to go tomorrow. You can't say, okay, when I come next month, because you're not coming next one. And you don't know the next time that you're going, it could be next year could be years, right. So any opportunity that you find whatever opportunity, just do it, don't keep delaying things. Because when we keep delaying things, what happens, we lose opportunities.
So anywhere that you see, do it.
Similarly, when it comes to soda, we think, you know, we make a huge plan, I'll go with this much money, and then I will give. Whereas you can even do a simple set of costs, such as taking a glass of water, pouring something and giving it to the person who's waiting in line behind you.
You can even do that. But we have big plans and ideas in our heads. When I go, I will bring money and I will get it changed. And I will have it in these many notes. And you know, then I will give it to these people and that person. Whatever opportunity you have, do it right there and then hasten run, yes, sir. Because if you don't run now, you might never be able to do it. So this is something extremely important that we must learn.
Exactly, we're always looking for the ideal time to do something. But the fact is that there's no ideal time, if you have been given the thought, the idea to do something. Now perhaps this is the ideal time.
Sometimes we have the opportunity to tell something to someone as well. Like over here, this man, he has the opportunity to tell the people, but what happens with you breathing? No, not right now, when they're eating? And I'll tell them, not when they're done with it. And
after two years, and I'll tell them what we think, I don't know much when I'm done with the course then I will tell
whenever I have become extremely skilled and proficient and this and that, then I will. But the fact is that you have been inspired to do something the thought came to your mind, the idea came to your mind, isn't that sufficient? Then do it don't keep waiting. Because the way you feel now, you will not feel at any other moment. The enthusiasm that you have right now the ideas are coming into your head, the thoughts that are in your head, they will not come again. So do not delay. If you look at it I showed in our in her when she was told by the prophet sallallahu Sallam about the faith that she had the choice to either stay with him or go. And what was she told? consult your parents? What
did she say? I don't need to consult my parents for this. She immediately chose to stay with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So opportunities, they don't come all the time.
Whenever they do come, what do we have to do? seize them, grab them.
We learn from another heavyset once the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
He was studying his companions that it was said to me, this is your nation out of whom 70,000 shall enter Paradise without reckoning it was in a particular dream.
This is very long, so I'm just mentioning a part of it. So he was told that 70,000 of your people, your Ummah will enter Jannah without any facade.
So there's a hammer, they were sitting over there, and one of the companions are clashing even worse, and he said, am I one of them or messenger of Allah? Meaning I should be one of them made the offer me to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes. Then other person got up and said, What about me? He said, No. Okasha has preceded you. So one is that you
immediately do something. Why? Because you have the thought, and the other is that you imitate other people. You just do what other people are doing.
There's a difference between being the first one and being the second one.
Isn't it? a huge difference? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Akasha has preceded us gone ahead of you, he will be one of them.
Also, we see that this man
who came running Yes, sir. Who is he addressing?
Now that he comes Who is he talking to? All of his people?
Which people What did they say to the messengers? Leonard human calm? Well, I am a center Commissioner that when a name
imagine he is talking to all of these people, addressing all of them. And he says it Toby rumalaya eloquent agilon we'll move on. Don't you think a lot of courage is
needed for this?
Have you ever spoken before three people,
that they're all listening to you and you're telling them about something they don't want to listen to. Now they're interested in your story, but they don't want to listen to you how difficult it is to say every word when people do not want to listen to what you're saying, when you see denial on their face, and look at how he is talking to so many people, a lot of courage is needed for this.
And we see over here again, that if a person is alone, what will give him strength, the truth, relying on a loss of contact that will give him strength, then he will be able to face many people he will be able to talk to them you will be able to address them. But if a person is just concerned about his own image, he looks at himself then he will feel
then he says womanly Allah or Buddha, levy Fatah Ronnie, what led to June and why should I not worship he who created me and to whom you will be returned?
Why am I earlier? Meaning Why should I not what is the reason? What reason do I have for not worshiping the one who created me? One idea, man has been understood in two ways. First of all, my as understood this is the question what
Madea meaning what is for me,
What reason do I have?
What justification do I have? Do not worship the one who has created me and we're going back to him.
Secondly, my is also understood this might have nothing, negation, meaning Melia it is not permissible for me, it is not right for me, it is not proper for me, that la would let the photography that I do not worship the one who has created me, the one who has created me, he has the greatest right upon me.
Because he is my Creator, he deserves that I turned to him that I worship Him. And on top of that, what la Ito German, and to him, all of you will be returned. So when we have come from him, when we're going back to him, then why not worship him? Why not obey Him as well?
And we see over here
that this man, he gives his own example. Right? He presents himself. He doesn't say, why should you not worship Allah?
What does he say? Why should I not worship Allah?
And then he warns them in a very subtle way, when he later on you're going back to him, he doesn't say I am going back to him. He says you are going back then?
Because every person knows that he's going to die. Right. So anyway, he's warning them. What do they hit of Joe? And in one statement, we see that he mentioned both Eman Villa as well as Emmanuel.
Right, that we have to worship a lot and we're going back to him
a torpedo? Shall I take min Dhoni besides him? Meaning besides Allah, le Hatton gods, you want me to take other gods besides a lot of worship? Is that what you want me to do? After fiducial it meaning I would never do this, when do any besides a lot earlier than gods in your
building, if the Most Merciful intensive evil for me, leftover near aneesha to shape their intercession cannot avail me at all whose intercession
the intercession of false gods? Where are you located only, nor can they rescue me, they cannot even save me.
Over here he's proving the heat to them.
Because the messengers, they call people to the worship of Allah alone, and the people, they refuse to accept that. So this man, he's coming and proving the heat to them.
And how is he doing it by putting himself forward? That why should I not worship a low and he has created me? And if you look at it, I'm going back to him. And on top of that, why should I take others besides Allah as gods, when they cannot benefit me they cannot harm me.
They are so incapable, that if Allah intends some difficulty for me some harm for me, then their intercession even cannot have you. Why is Sharon mentioned? One is that you help someone yourself. When you cannot help them yourself. What do you do? You request someone to help them, isn't it?
If you can help the person yourself, what does it show
your strength, your power, your might
But if you have to request someone else to help them, what does it show?
your weakness, right? So the way that he's saying over here that near Nisha to their intercession cannot avail. In a way he's pointing out to the weakness of the false gods.
If Allah sense of difficulty for me,
these false gods no way they can remove it themselves. And if they try to intercede, even their intercession will not even work. Well, are you kidding me? And they cannot rescue me. You don't from new factories, new off Dell nakada. What does that mean to rescue someone in court to rescue someone from something that is dangerous and destructive?
Welcome to Alaska, whoa, 40 millenary annual caller coming? He rescued you from there. Right. So what is uncommon to rescue to say from what from that which is dangerous from that which is destructive?
And remember, the example of the fly, when the fly takes something away, like instantly, you mean, they cannot rescue it from the fly?
So we're here we see that this man, he gives multiple reasons for worshipping Allah soprano.
What are those reasons?
Now, first of all, and the de fattorini. Secondly,
what led to Jerome, then?
Basically, what's the point that he's making over here? That all power is with
a loss of
the ability to give harm, the ability to remove harm, the ability to give benefit to take away benefit, all this power is with a loss.
Now he says over here in your reading manual below, Lin is the Most Merciful intense some arm for me. That doesn't mean that a lion pens evil for people as well.
That he inflicts evil upon people as well.
isn't it? So? Why do we believe that all good, all evil comes from a loss of meaning Allah allows evil to happen, he allows evil to come
Like, for example, if a person falls ill, their wallet gets stolen. This is what the harm loss is an utter,
who allowed this to happen? Who allowed this to happen? A loss of time. But notice the name of a law that's mentioned over here, unlike man, why? Because even in the difficulty that people suffer, there is mercy, how
she's mentioning about how once her purse, she lost it, and her purse there was money in it. And there were also some Islamic books in it. So she was talking to her mother. And she said to her that, yes, you have lost the money, but you never know. The books that were there. Somebody might read them and learn something and with a Muslim, Allahu Allah, you never know. So there's always good in the difficulty that people suffer.
Basically, that whatever difficulty a believer suffers, he is patient over it. And what happens is sins are removed. Isn't it? So even the prick of a thorn? Right? And if you think about it, many times, when we suffer from difficulty, what happens we turn to almost immediately. It gives us a reason to make.
It gives us a reason to cry before
isn't it? which perhaps we wouldn't do otherwise.
It gives us a reason to really humble ourselves before Allah, and those feelings would not come unless we experienced that turmoil.
We experienced that difficulty.
Right? So many when a person falls ill center being removed.
You lose money, it's quite possible Allah saved you from committing is rough, you never know. Right? So look at the name of Rama, there is Rama even in the door that the people suffer.
if the Most Merciful in times of difficulty for me, these false gods they cannot do anything. They cannot even benefit me from their intercession.
And remember that any evil that comes a person's way it comes out by the permission of Allah in total Baccarat. 102, what do we learn? Well, Mohammed Lavina, the human had him in the evening.
A lovely evening. This is why whenever a believer suffers from some difficulty, what should he say? In 911? He was in LA he Roger.
Yes, this difficulty has gone I belong to Allah.
I go back to him. He knows what's best for me. This is temporary, this is a test.
And remember that Allah is not unjust to anyone.
He is not unfair with anyone at
any challenge, any difficulty you face are some good in that. And it's quite possible that if you're facing some difficulty right now allies, saving you from a greater difficulty, isn't it? You're being saved from a greater difficulty. You're being given the courage to face greater difficulties in the future. The Prophet said a lot of them if you look at his life, was it full of years of challenges?
challenges, so many difficulties, wherever you had not gone through all of them, would he be able to complete his mission?
No, that was necessary.
So he says to them over here that I tell him in 2010 in your reading a
lot of near Anisha feng shui and whether you will do so in a way he is establishing your head over here and he's also refuting the concept of shame
that your false gods they can do nothing and the people of McCall so what do they believe concerning their false gods that they would intercede for them? Right, that they can help them they can rescue them they can save them into the Zoomer number three we learn when Latina woman dooney Alia manner boom l le, una de la Hasan that those whom they take as protectors besides Allah, what do they say concerning them? We only worship them so that they may bring us closer to a line position. They may intercede for us
in me indeed I even then meaning if I would worship other gods, then I would be in the field blood alley moving in clear error.
If I were to worship others besides a lot if I were to depend on them, I would be in clear and Bolelli movie.
See, he's talking about himself. He doesn't say you are inferior.
You are born you are in your this your that you're going to go to Hellfire? No, he tells them indirectly. In the middle of the movie, if I were to depend on these gods, that I would be in clear air. So you see this is believable been? But there's hikma isn't it? He's telling clearly, however, there is wisdom in the way that he's telling them.
And he says in me, indeed I am and to be loved because I have believed in your Lord. First Moroni, so listen to me.
He says to them, I have believed in your God, first maroun. So listen to me, who does He say the student? There are two opinions concerning this.
First of all, it is said that he said this to the messengers. After addressing the people now he addresses the messengers, that indeed, I have believed in your God, the one who has sent you, I believe in him. First Moroni, so listen to me, meaning be a witness to my email. So anyway, what is he doing, declaring his fate?
This is Shahada in front of the messengers, first Moroni, so listen to me, meaning be a witness.
Secondly, it is said that he's saying this to the people that are in need to build up because I have believed in your Lord. He doesn't say, My Lord, what does he say? Your Lord? Why does he say your Lord? Again, he's doing Dawa to them indirectly, that whether you accept him or not, he is your Lord. He is your master. He is your Creator. He is your owner. First Moroni. So listen to me meaning listen to my advice, and believe as I have believed as well.
You also believe first Moroni.
Now, this statement that he uttered in the comments below be confessional, what is the statement?
Shahada, right, he is testifying openly that he has believed in Allah. Right. And this statement is the best statement that a person can utter that a person can pronounce with statement
declaring the faith
openly announcing that a person believes in Allah
and calling to Allah, instead of facilite. I have 33 we learn woman accidental colon Mandara Illa, where armina saleha Wakanda in many million Muslim, that who is better in speech than the one who invites to Allah?
And he does righteousness and he says, indeed, I am the Muslims. So he says, indeed I am of the Muslims, declares his faith. And what else does he do? He also calls people to Allah.
This person is best
In speech, so the best words that you can utter are what? Words of a man and words of calling people to Allah, best words that you can utter.
So he says in the moment it will become first marone I have believed in your Lord. So listen to me
