Allah warns the believers that Yeah, are you Hola, Dina Amanu or you who have believed, mainly altered the main command D. Whoever Have you should revert from his religion, young Tada from the root letters, what are the if that is to revert meaning to take a step back to go back. So for example, a person was in Jaya Helia Allah gave him Houda and new. So he came forward and he became enlightened. And then what happens? This person, he leaves that node, he leaves that Hoda and he steps back into Jehovah. Yeah, he steps back into ignorance. So this is what if did that

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

as a technical term, it means apostasy.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:28

So many altered the mean, come on, Dini, whoever Have you should revert from his religion, he leaves Islam becomes a non Muslim, whether he becomes a Jew or a Christian or Hindu or a Buddhist or an atheist or whatever. Whoever leaves his religion, leaves Islam, joins others befriends them becomes like them pleases them, once their friendship is loyal to them, then is the deen of Allah going to suffer?

00:01:30 --> 00:01:33

No. You know, it's like if a person is working

00:01:34 --> 00:02:07

in a particular company, he has a very high position or a very important position, every person feels whatever role whatever work they're doing is meaningful. It's very important. It's very crucial. Even the person who's sitting at the front desk, what do they believe that when they're answering the calls, they know about the company, this is why they can answer the calls. They know what to do. This is why they can manage the people who are coming in. And what do they feel that if I quit, this company that I've been working for, they're gonna suffer so much. So if they have a fight with their boss, or they demand for a raise, and they don't get it, what do they threaten with

00:02:08 --> 00:02:44

quitting their job. So likewise, if there is a person who, for legal reasons, he threatens to leave Islam, he threatens to leave salah. He threatens to, you know, stop fasting, that Oh, Allah, if you don't give me this, then that's it, I'm not going to pray anymore. Or people say this to their family members. Just the other day somebody was mentioning to me that what do you do about a person who used to pray a lot faster, a lot, make a lot of dua for a particular job that they wanted. And then they didn't get it. And I'll just stop praying completely. And they said that they were very upset with Allah, you know, they've had it, they can't deal with it anymore.

00:02:46 --> 00:03:36

If you quit, then what's going to happen? What is the boss going to do? He's going to give an ad, we can see and then what will happen hundreds of applications can come 50 applications from GM, Dan obligations from GM so much so that people cannot even figure out who to leave and who to take. And then that person is replaced. Yes, for some time the company suffers. But eventually what happens? They get back they got rolling again. And what the suffered in that time, because of the good performance of the new worker, what happens they make up for their losses. So Allah says, may alter the mean, come on Dini, whoever leaves his religion, then know that for Sophia Diller who will come

00:03:36 --> 00:03:39

in and soon Allah will bring some people

00:03:40 --> 00:04:27

meaning in your place. We have to trust Allah subhanaw taala we should not test the last one out Allah. If I'm doing that. I'll get it or not. In one of my Buhari class, we listen to lecture and the chef sharing the story. I want to share it. I like it myself so much. So I just want to share it Sahaba I don't remember the name is it whenever you work, and whenever he got to pay, you will give all the way of Allah subhanaw taala and charity and nothing come work with him sir nothing left. So at the night, when he came home, and the morning when he slept in the morning under the pillow pillow, you will get the same amount of money will give in charity. So he did a couple of times the

00:04:27 --> 00:04:59

same things and in the morning he will help the people. So I'm doing that. But I got back my money under my pillow. So another friend of him they said that we try so he worked he gave all the money for the charity on the way but he coming in the night on the morning check the pillow no money next month doing same thing. It Coming give all the money to the way of Allah. But at the night's sleep and the morning no money on the pillow. So I came to the same friend I said why you're lying? You

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

telling me you do the same money and under the pillow you find money in the morning. And but I did the same thing I didn't find it. So the know what is the difference? Because I trust the last one not Allah but you testing Allah subhanaw taala very true. So we need to trust Him, not test him. And if we have this attitude of testing Allah, and then we feel that naroda Billa Allah subhanaw taala has not met our expectations. And as a result we take a step back, may altered them in Quran D, then know that Allah doesn't need you. He can replace you with somebody else. For Sophia Diller who Bill Coleman, Allah will bring about some other people in your place. If you quit, your boss will replace

00:05:48 --> 00:06:29

you. If a woman says, I don't need my husband, let me leave him and let him suffer for no genuine reason. And then what happens? He goes on to somebody else. The fact is that there is no human being on this earth who is irreplaceable? No, every human being is replaceable. Every person has a substitute. If you quit from something, somebody else will take your place. So for Sofia de la who Bill Coleman Allah who will bring about somebody else in your place, but they will be different how you hit boom, he will love them. While you have buena who and they will love him. There is a difference over here.

00:06:31 --> 00:07:17

You test him and they love him and he loves them back you hipbone while you hit Boonah so if you don't love Allah, you are not loyal to him. You don't love him the most, then Allah has no need of you. He doesn't care for you, he will replace you and he will replace you with people whom he loves, and they will love him. So what does this teach us that we must have love for Allah? Because when Medina Amma No, I shall do herbal Allah, those who believe they're intense in their love for Allah and those who love Allah, then they are loyal to Allah. They are loyalty Visine committed. They're committed people, they're not dusting and trying all the time. They're trusting. They are committed.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:45

They give priority to everything that has come from Allah, and they do not leave the dean at any cost. They will not compromise on the deed or any of its principles for little little things for worldly gains for worldly benefits. No, they're committed to the insincere it doesn't matter whether someone becomes happy or someone becomes upset with them, whether they gain something or they lose something they do not leave the deen they do not leave Allah

00:07:47 --> 00:08:12

because you hipbone where you have buena. They love Allah. And when you love someone, and when that love is true, it is sincere than what will happen. It doesn't matter what the people say. It doesn't matter what you suffer because of them. It doesn't matter the pain that you have to experience because of them. You will bear everything because you love them.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:58

Like for example, it happens that a man he just loves a woman. And then what happens even if the entire family opposes no you cannot marry her. You cannot go to her you should not be with her. What happens? He says, You know what? It's either you or her? I'm going for her. I'm going to marry her. You want to accept us? Come along if you don't want to. I'm sorry, I cannot care for you. What does this mean that that love is sincere that that man is committed. And if he says well, my mom's not happy, my sister will be really upset. And so as a result, he leaves her, then in that case that love was not really there in the first place. So true love makes a person committed.

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

And when that love is weak when that love is fake, rather than what happens on the smallest difficulty, a person leaves

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

smallest discomfort, a person walks away. You know, a mother who truly loves her children who loves her family. She will never say I've had it. I've had enough I quit. Right she will ever say that. There are women who will suffer domestic abuse, domestic violence. Why? For the sake of their children, because they don't want their children come from a broken family. They will suffer abuse, they will suffer poverty, they will suffer so much emotionally, but because they love their children, they will take anything to make their children happy.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:54

Likewise, a woman who loves her husband, she will do the same thing.

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

She will be in the same way. So this is the difference between

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

Loving Allah and not loving Allah. What kind of people does Allah like those who love Allah because when you love someone, then you get their love.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:21

When you love someone, then you get their love. If you don't love them, then how can you get their love, they will love you for some time and eventually they realize that you don't care for them so they're gonna leave you.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:27

So you're hipbone where you have buena. He loves them, and they love him.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:57

And this is something that's not difficult for Allah to do at all. Do replace us with someone else. In the Quran, Allah says he shot you with him come, where did you How can God or mother regard Allah havior Aziz, if he wants he can take you away and replace you with another creation and this is not difficult for Allah at all. And the people who will be in your place, now the Allahu Anhu little door and he will be happy with them, and they will be happy with him.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:13

Allah says we're into the willow yesterday, we'll call Monica Eurocom Salman Iacono, Uppsala calm, if you turn away, Allah will replace you with some other people. And they will not be like you rather they will be much better than you much better than you.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:57

And sometimes we see this, that a person thinks that if he leaves some work of the dean, he quits, he walks away. And he says, you know, I'm going to go and then this work is going to start to collapse, and then they will beg me to stay, they will come after me. Please come back, please come back, please do this. But what happens a person goes, and somebody else take their place. So never think that you are invincible. Never think that you are irreplaceable. You are 100% replaceable. So the honor isn't what? That you. Once you have that position, you maintain it, you don't lose it, you don't give it up. But the thing is, that when a person becomes serious about his Deen does something

00:11:57 --> 00:12:23

for Allah tries to take a step closer to Allah, then he will be tested in various ways. Sometimes it's the words of people, sometimes it's the attitude of people, sometimes it's the fact that you cannot get along with some people. So don't lose heart over there. Don't leave the work of Allah. Don't leave the work the service of the Beloved, of your loved one for the sake of other people.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:39

Do you stop cooking for your children whom you love just because somebody's criticizing the way you're cooking? And you say fine, I'm never going to feed my children again. No, you don't care what they say you love your children, you're going to feed them, even if the food that you prepare is not amazing.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:58

But what do you say, I'm doing my best. This is all that I can do. I don't care what people have to say. So likewise, when you love Allah, and you're doing something for him, and don't let other people stop you don't let their comments make you give up

00:12:59 --> 00:13:02

your hipbone where you have buena,

00:13:03 --> 00:13:19

as in Latin Ireland book meaning that visiting Annelle Catherine, those who are humble toward the believers and powerful against the disbelievers. They left floral off the lead. There is Flora luff are these

00:13:20 --> 00:13:22

who are are they humble?

00:13:24 --> 00:13:32

It doesn't mean someone who is weak and someone who is humiliated. No, it means humble. Someone who doesn't have any pride.

00:13:33 --> 00:14:32

Someone who is easy to deal with someone who is cooperative, because who can you not work with? Someone who is stuff, someone who doesn't bend? Someone who does not understand who doesn't have mercy? So a dealer who humble cooperative and or is Florida versus who is as he's one who is strong and mighty, also gives meaning of tough. So what do we see here? That the one who loves Allah, then he treats nicely. All those people who love Allah. He treats them well. He is gentle towards the full light and kind, not harsh, not ill mannered, not felt speech. No. Someone who has good o'clock soft hearted, kind, merciful, towards who those who love Allah. And those who don't love Allah,

00:14:32 --> 00:14:59

those who disobey Allah, those who don't care about Allah, then yes, they use their strength and their firmness against them. Solomonic was thinking about Sister Attica, may Allah reward her when I was a student, everybody come and said, Sister Attica I have this problem and this problem and I call her and everybody complaining, okay Sharla no problem is Sharla she never say hard word to anybody I see at least, and for me Subhanallah I never

00:15:00 --> 00:15:11

See from her any hard work or frown in her face Subhanallah this is like as a lateral movement, being humble and being so kind to women, may Allah make us

00:15:12 --> 00:15:44

so being gentle and kind, cooperative understanding towards the believers, because the fact is that if a person understands the people that I'm dealing with the Momineen, who are they? Those who love Allah, those who want to please Allah, those who are striving to make Allah happy? Yes, they have their shortcomings, yes, they fall the trip, but at the end of the day, they have a heart that loves Allah, they have an intention in sha Allah to please Allah.

00:15:45 --> 00:16:03

So when that is the case, then I should be kind and merciful and cooperative, so that I can help them. I can pick them up and take them along with me, not that I believe them and make them feel bad, put them down so that they get discouraged. And they give up until you know,

00:16:04 --> 00:16:08

there are many there is Ireland, caffeine

00:16:09 --> 00:16:19

Yuja he doing a feasable Allah He they strive in the Cause of Allah meaning they struggle on the way of Allah striving, utmost why to please Him?

00:16:20 --> 00:16:34

Because to be the lions, what the way that leads you to Allah, so they're striving on that path to get to Allah to make him happy to please him, you know, he doing a feast to beat Allah. And when you're struggling to please Allah, then what will happen?

00:16:35 --> 00:17:11

Yes, people will criticize you. People will find faults in you, they will try to blame you. So what I have found Aloma Tala him, and they do not fear the blame of any critic. Loma let him same route Lam while mean, what does it mean, to criticize someone to find faults in them to make them feel bad by mentioning their faults, so that they stop what they're doing. They feel horrible about themselves, they give up. So they don't fear the criticism of any critic,

00:17:12 --> 00:17:28

that if they are going to do something of the deen, they're going to say something of the deen and somebody laughs at them, or somebody fast as a sarcastic comment. They don't stop because of them. They don't give up because of them. No, lay off all along with him.

00:17:30 --> 00:17:39

And you know, sometimes it happens that you're doing something wonderful, amazing for the sake of Allah. And what happens? Somebody comes and discourages you.

00:17:40 --> 00:18:02

Just the other day somebody was mentioning to me about how, because of their hijab, somebody they were talking to, and they were telling them what they want to do. In university. They said that, you know, it's really nice that you want to do it, but I'm sorry, you're not going to find a job. They haven't even gone to university, yet. They're just sharing their future plans with them. But what do they say? That I'm sorry, you can study all you want, but you're not going to get a job. Why?

00:18:04 --> 00:18:05

Because of your hijab.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:28

So you might as well not do this, or you might as well think about leaving what you're doing. And she said that because of that comment of hers, I got so discouraged that I've been having feelings of regret that why did I start this? Why did I start this hijab? Because now I feel that there's no hope for me in the future. I can't do this, I can't do that. I can't fulfill my dreams.

00:18:30 --> 00:18:45

But the fact is, when a person is doing something for Allah, then what happens? He believes that No, it's not these people who are my providers, who will find me a job, Allah will find me a job in a place that is best for me most suitable for me.

00:18:47 --> 00:19:20

And by the way, when you're studying something, why should you study just with the intention of finding a job? Unfortunately, this is what has happened. People study that through which they can get the best job they can make the most money in, you learn you gain not from making money. In them, you learn to benefit yourself first to benefit the creation of Allah, to make yourself a better person. Think about it. You as a woman. If you have a degree in medicine, don't you think you will be a better mother?

00:19:21 --> 00:19:51

Yeah, you will be I know, I have a sister who has a degree in medicine, but she cannot practice over here. But I see that when it comes to dealing with her children's sickness, you know, all these issues. She saw calm. And many times I call her seeking her advice because I'm freaking out over a diaper rash. And she's telling me what to do. She's like, relax, it's okay. Not a big deal. Here I am rushing my gift to the emergency. And there she is so calm and satisfied. Why? Because she has that knowledge, which I don't have.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:59

So don't think that knowledge is just for the sake of working. It's to make you a better person.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:41

customers came. I didn't shake hands with them. So my CEO, he said to my general managers said Mrs. Han, not to come to the office again, because they were Levi's guys. And she didn't shake hands. So I said, I didn't, I didn't want the next day, and not even the next day. And then the secretary called me and he said, the CEO is calling was asking why you're not coming? Then I replied, Because he said, You are not You're not gonna come because you you refuse to shake hands with the male guys. So he said, No, he's is he asking you again to come again, here. So when I went to the office, all the thing was okay, and next time when all the nail customers used to come, he was used to tell them

00:20:41 --> 00:21:05

before, look, this is a Muslim country, and the females working here, they are not going to shake hands with the male guys. So laugh all alone with him. Don't fear that people are going to say this, or they might fire me, or they might not hire me. Or they may say this about me or that about me. Don't fear layer have one Aloma to let him

00:21:07 --> 00:21:36

who doesn't have this fear, the one who loves a lot more than he loves anybody else, the one who fears a lot more than he fears anybody else, then he doesn't care what people have to say, or what they don't have to say he doesn't care about them, then he does what he has to do. laugh when alone with him. Because people will get overly concerned about people's comments, then they can never get anywhere in life. You have to get over the criticism of people.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:50

If you want to be successful, yes, you hear it, it might be beneficial for you to make you better, but don't get carried away because of that don't get discouraged because of that layer, homophone Aloma de la,

00:21:51 --> 00:21:57

that tell me, what are some of the Loma that we experienced? Or that we fear? We're going to hear

00:21:59 --> 00:22:11

that people are going to say this, or people gonna say that? I don't want to hear such a comment. I don't want anybody to say something like that about me. And because of that, we get discouraged. What are some of the things that people say?

00:22:13 --> 00:22:38

So for example, when it comes to hijab, that we fear that people are going to say, Oh, what happened? What happened? Did you get engaged? Did you get married? I remember, and this was in a Muslim country, I went to a class once and there was a girl over there. And she's like, are you married? Are you engaged? Or something? And I'm like, no, because I was still in high school at that time, like, no, what does this have to do with? I mean, what are you talking? What? Why would you ask me such a random question?

00:22:39 --> 00:22:42

And she's like, Oh, no, I was wondering because of your hijab.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:50

Because I know of a girl who started wearing it just because she got married or something I don't like, really. So what's the big deal?

00:22:52 --> 00:23:11

So having this fear that if I walk into class, if I walk into school with this on and I didn't have it on yesterday, what are people going to say? lo ha, phone, don't fear, whatever. You know, sometimes I wonder if people can walk around with amazing hairstyles.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:24

To the point that sometimes you're like, wow, whoever thought of that, then why do you fear wearing a hijab? I mean, come on. It's much more decent than some of the things that people walk around with.

00:23:26 --> 00:24:07

The other day, I was at a public place and a woman she walked in with red hair and standing up and like half shaved from one side. And my son is like, what? She's got red hair. Why does she have red hair? And he's going on and on and on about her red hair. And like, quiet, you don't say this? Look, you can ask her if you're really curious, but don't ask me. So if people have the confidence, to walk around like that, no matter what people say about them, then why shouldn't we have the confidence, especially when we're doing something to please Allah and Allah is watching us wherever we are, wherever we're going. So now you have one and amatola him.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:41

So I go, I have a really good friend in school. She's Christian. But what happens we used to carpool together to school. And so I've been wearing a bike to high school. When I started high school, I was wearing a baya. And so a lot of times, people they always saw us together. So they started thinking we were sisters. And so one time someone asked, Are you guys sisters? And my friend was all awkward about it. She's like, No, I'm not. And she told me a while later that, you know, sometimes she felt weird because because I wear the Avaya and she wore, you know, tank tops and everything. She's like, I started feeling like I was a bad Muslim, because I didn't wear it along with you.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:59

Because it shows like, I mean, when you're so confident about it, really, other people get affected, and they sort of feel like you're doing the right thing. Yes. So if you're not confident about it, what will happen? Then you are afraid of what people are saying, and then you will get discouraged and

00:25:00 --> 00:25:11

Eventually we'll be like, You know what? People say that Avaya is not mandatory, so it's okay. And I'll just keep a smile for job one. And then gradually it starts reducing, reducing, reducing until it comes to nothing.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:53

I remember once I was outside with my sisters, and we were outside somewhere and we were going in the car and this lady, she looks at my sister and she's just like, you know, we live in Canada. We don't wear masks here. Okay? So what people can say whatever and you're like, whatever, just keep walking. Just ignore what is the heart the beholder head on Apollo, Salama in a man who, beloved we Maru KERAMA when they pass by love speech, you know something bad, they just walk with nobility and with dignity. pretend as if nobody said anything. And even if they said, Who cares?

00:25:55 --> 00:26:19

I remember when I started wearing a niqab and not non Muslim Muslim, they gave me a hard time. And then one sister, she told me, you know, I'm Muslim sister. I know her she were nigga but her daughter she married Christian. I, I ignore her. And then another one. She told me in the next meeting, we met she told me, you know, only the beautiful people that were up there should when I tell her my husband thing come.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:41

So she required she didn't say nothing, but we will they keep talking. We have to ignore it. Yes. And sometimes people don't get over it. In a you're trying to get over it. Every time you step out of the house, you muster up all this confidence and courage and you, you know, have all the self talk, you pump yourself up and you walk. And then people come and say something again and again.

00:26:42 --> 00:26:44

So les Ahafo, no matter now.

00:26:47 --> 00:27:27

When I was coming from a school, and I was in the subway, so I had like my classmates, they were Muslim, too. But they were just wearing hijab, and some of them were there. So I was wearing the pub. So all of a sudden when we the train stopped at other stations, so one person walked in. And because it was rush times everybody was standing. So when he saw me he started scolding. Like, get out of our country. Why are you here and all that stuff, right? So there was a girl of she was, I think, up like in her teens, she was just wearing, you know, really shot and 10 top and everything. So the Muslim ladies who were standing with me, they just like moved aside that we don't know her.

00:27:28 --> 00:27:33

And all of the sudden that girl, like who appears like who wasn't wearing a

00:27:35 --> 00:28:11

proper clothing, so she started defending me. And she said to that person, this is Canada, and she have the right, whatever she wants to wear. So why are you saying that she's not sick, you are sick because you are scolding her. So you better get off at next station. If you don't, I'm just going to press the alarm. So the train will stop and security will take you. So like Subhanallah my friends didn't defend me. They just moved aside that we don't know her. So Allah Subhana Allah sent a person who defended me, so amazing.

00:28:13 --> 00:28:41

So many, I think there is one more point to remember because I remember all stars always used to say that you can take critics easy when you take your like pleasing, also easy like when someone says good words to you, you're very pleased with them. And you are nothing very pleased. But when someone criticizes you, you're like, Oh, I can't take any more the things should be saying when someone is pleasing you should be okay easy. So this will be also easy on you if you can tolerate criticism as well.

00:28:42 --> 00:29:16

I remember one lady from the class she shared with me about her her friend who mentioned that she's a bus driver. And before her duty began, there was still about 15 minutes. And it was time for us. So she started praying in the bus because there was a lot of room over there. So she just started praying over there because there's still 15 minutes. And as he was praying, one of the teachers from the school he came and started, you know, banging on the door and started yelling at her and humiliating her and but she continued her prayer life, often alone with Anna and

00:29:17 --> 00:29:31

when she finished her precious, and what's the matter, and he kept going on and on and on. And she turned on the radio or something. So everybody could hear what that man was saying to her.

00:29:32 --> 00:29:59

And then after a couple of days, and she didn't say anything, and she didn't stop her salah. She didn't think that I'm never gonna pray again. In the bus. I'm never gonna pray again over here. She was confident about what she did because she didn't compromise on her work. She was fulfilling her duty towards her worldly boss and towards the real boss. Alright, so she was confident about what she was doing. She didn't care about what that meant. Next day she came to her again same, you know, for a couple of days happened and then the man he came

00:30:00 --> 00:30:27

In the teacher, and he said, something to the effect that I could not sleep all these days because of what I said to you, please forgive me. Please forgive me. I'm sorry. But what I said to you, and now he's different. But the thing is that if we break our Salah because of what people are saying, Oh, we don't pray, because of what people might say, then how are we meant to tell people about the deen of Allah? How we went down them.

00:30:28 --> 00:30:59

I said, I'm just holding on to that thought we were thinking that those of us who are in public school in high school, it's a responsibility on us to give Dawa to everybody. And I remember when I was in middle school, often I'd feel uncomfortable and my friends would bring up controversial topics about for wives or capital punishment when teachers would bring it up. And you know, I would always pray that You know, those topics wouldn't come up so I can avoid them because they would ask me or maybe another girl was wearing a half sleeve and I'm wearing full sleeves, right? Explain that because I don't want to make her feel bad. And then I realized that often we feel these villain

00:30:59 --> 00:31:32

insecurities because we ourselves aren't confident about our deen. And we don't know, well, and the woman we learned about all of these things in the Quran, I realized that Okay, so now they come to me, I'm much more confident same with hijab, that, unfortunately, many people are forced by their parents or whatever, culturally to wear the hijab, and they do it. But then they don't understand why is it that they're doing and why is it so often they let go the hijab, but many people are humbler when their parents give them the understanding what they themselves understand, why is it that we're doing? Why is it when I'm wearing hijab, or Avaya, whatever it is, they feel much more

00:31:32 --> 00:31:49

proud and they are confident is very promote, as a person has fear of what people say, when he's not confident. So confidence in what you're doing, gives you confidence to face people as well. I don't really know how to explain this. But on a larger level, I know.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:58

Like, everything that's happening in the world right now with the Muslims in Syria and Egypt, in Palestine, that's been happening for years and years.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:40

I don't know how to put all this together. But um, basically, there's little kids that are being mass murdered, from nuclear explosives, where they're dying from seizures, and they're just convulsing. And all of this is happening in from the trustee in New Jersey. And I remember, one of the sheriff was like, you know, be very careful when you do this, and do that, and whatever, because a lot of people are being jailed, for no reason at all, just being Muslim, you're being jailed. And he's just be careful if you use the word jihad or anything like this, which is understandable and whatnot. But a lot of people are just scared to even think about, you know, standing up for the

00:32:40 --> 00:33:01

people that are being mass murdered, you know, we can live and die in this will still go on? And what are we doing about it? Like, we aren't going to be asked on the Day of Judgment. You know, what did you do? You were sitting in your house, eating three times a day. And there's people all over the world that had time for your brothers and sisters. What are you doing?

00:33:02 --> 00:33:02


00:33:03 --> 00:33:40

learning about this, like, do not fear people feel at the end of the day, we have to for your life, we feared a lot of Men will be men, women would be reason men, we would be doing the right thing when it needs to be done on the level that needs to be done the way that it needs to be done. So we see that sometimes because of what's going on in the world, we don't even stand up for ourselves, right? Forget other people. We don't even stand up for ourselves for our faith, to practice our deen. We are so afraid of the mere comments of people that we don't have the courage to get up and pray. We don't have the courage to speak up the truth.

00:33:43 --> 00:34:03

I was just thinking a lot of the times we tend to compromise our views towards Allah, thinking that this is what people will say this is what will happen. But they've done studies how 80 to 85% of the times, things that you're worrying about will never even happen in your life. So 80 to 85% of the time, things that you're worried about, will never even happen.

00:34:04 --> 00:34:58

I stopped wearing makeup a few months ago, like three months ago before I come through and so I was traveling to come to alHuda and former Alberta info McMurray in my car and I was following a GPS and my GPS day and it was at the border of us so in Detroit and when I came there was I'm Canadian for so long and there was there were a lot of Canadian going through that was a short time and I was looking for a place to plug my GPS because I couldn't go anywhere. And I want a place to Salah too. So when I came to the border they stopped me they said just go go to the Security tech this paper all the Canadian passports me because they were in a cup black and so and I wasn't scared at all. I

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

was very very cold.

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

For instance, I start wearing makeup. So when they came to, they put me in a room, they locked me. And so I quickly said, Wow, this is amazing. I'm gonna plug my GPS. And I wish you guys will hold me for one hour even.

00:35:17 --> 00:36:08

Just to because I had to take the vote. And so they asked me, What do you have in your car? I said, Do you have a weapons sad weapon? Like what? They said knife. I said, Yes, I have a knife because I'm traveling and I have my kitchen stuff. They said, Okay. So they went to check on my car, and they took all my papers. And so I started doing my salah. I did to like I finished all my salad and I was in a salon when the lady came back, and she said, Okay, you fine, and you will be okay. I said, Do I have to go over all this? Anytime I come to the border, you said no, you will be fine. Take this paper. So I think you'll be very confident don't be scared about anybody. And what happens

00:36:08 --> 00:36:56

is when we get scared, then we start blurting things out and we start panicking and who panics. Don't who's guilty and people have reason to doubt you. So just relax. Don't panic, take it easy. And if they are, if people are questioning you, or checking you again and again know that sometimes there is a reason why they have to do it. Right they're fulfilling their duty as well. It is for the purpose of security that they have to do this so some understand where they're coming from as well sometimes it's reasonable and sometimes it is not reasonable. So where it is not reasonable trust on Allah do they stay relaxed, they allow one alone with Allah him and inshallah Allah will help you.

00:36:56 --> 00:37:47

So lay a half one Aloma Tala in Valley comfortable Allah that is the favor of Allah, what is a favor of Allah having these characteristics. Six qualities have been mentioned over here, about which Allah says you see him as he gives it to whomsoever He wills or lock were set on our lien. And don't think that Allah is stingy. In granting these qualities. No, he is vast in his funnel in his I thought in his gift in his favor, you make yourself worthy, and Allah will give you to his early he knows who deserves these qualities and who doesn't. So what we see here is that some characteristics of believers are mentioned which believers who Allah loves. Who are they? What are their

00:37:47 --> 00:38:09

characteristics? First of all, you have boom, secondly, where you have buena they love him back what's next? The lettin Arlen meaning then are exerting idle caffeine, then uj do an iffy Seville in there, and then lay a half Hoonah low water.

00:38:11 --> 00:38:19

They do not fear the criticism of any critique. So Valley covered Lulu you you and your shout Allahu Su and Arlene.

00:38:21 --> 00:38:24

Let's listen to the recitation and then some reflections will read this verse.

00:38:26 --> 00:38:27


00:38:29 --> 00:38:30


00:38:33 --> 00:38:37

does that mean Kumar Dini for Sophia?

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

Won't be at home first

00:38:44 --> 00:38:50

will be up on me you him boom while him Munna oh

00:38:52 --> 00:38:54


00:38:55 --> 00:38:59

latching meaning that in

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

theory you know you're gonna be healing

00:39:06 --> 00:39:08

Yuja he doona finish

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

off off

00:39:16 --> 00:39:20

then he got home no longer you Dima ye

00:39:23 --> 00:39:27

what was your 19

00:39:30 --> 00:39:33

So what do we think generally mean is

00:39:35 --> 00:39:51

that we just perform certain rituals that are specific to certain times certain places. And that's what Dean is. But what does is it just the dean is what to love Allah and having a love, love you.

00:39:52 --> 00:40:00

That is the greatest achievement. That is the best quality that a person can possess. That is the best funnel that a person

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

loves Allah and Allah loves him. And likewise, being nice and gentle with the people of Allah. Because the fact that the heart that has love for Allah, the heart that loves a loving heart, such a heart is what soft and tender,

00:40:23 --> 00:40:25

merciful and kind, gentle

00:40:27 --> 00:40:33

and a heart that doesn't know how to love. That heart is harsh and cold,

00:40:34 --> 00:40:35


00:40:36 --> 00:40:46

unaffected. So if we claim that our heart is full of love for Allah, then it will be visible in the way that we deal with the people of Allah.

00:40:47 --> 00:41:11

Remember this because many people they claim I love Allah, you know, my love of mine, people will go back and fourth rocking themselves as they're listening to the Quran or listening to an Ashida My heart is full of love for Allah. At the same time, they're seen yelling at people and cursing them and humiliating people. No, this is all false. A heart that has love

00:41:12 --> 00:42:03

is a heart that is soft and compassionate and tender understanding. And a heart that doesn't know how to love that cannot contain the love for Allah than that heart is harsh. So these two things will always be together. Love for Allah and love for the people love Allah, they will always be together and think about it. A loving heart, meaning someone who can love others. Only that kind of a heart can love Allah. Because a heart that has not experienced love has not experienced compassion has not experienced tenderness. How can such a heart contain the love for Allah, humble before Allah, we before Allah? It's not possible. So a loving heart can love Allah and think about it. If a

00:42:03 --> 00:42:13

person cannot love the people who are before him whom he can see, then how can he love the one the being whom he cannot see.

00:42:14 --> 00:42:15

Think about it.

00:42:16 --> 00:42:45

If we cannot have mercy towards people who are before us, if we cannot be gentle towards them, if we cannot be cooperated with them, then how can we be obedient to the one who we cannot see? It's not possible. So if we want to love Allah, then let's start loving the people of Allah. If we want to be humbled before Allah, let's start being humble before the people of Allah. So you find Allah's love by loving his people.

00:42:47 --> 00:42:54

You realize Allah's love you create Allah's love in your heart, by loving Allah's friends.

00:42:55 --> 00:43:15

So you hit boom, where you're born, because you see love is something that drives you. Love is something that motivates you that pushes you people will do the most difficult things because of the love that they have for someone. This is why it's so important to love Allah because otherwise you can't obey him. You can't
