Will Ferrell Hoda huduma hamedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Shara muramasa to her wakulla modesetting Viva la vida de la la la la la la Latina. My brothers and my sisters in Islam. Once Ahmad radi Allahu taala and who got together with all the Sahaba

00:01:54--> 00:02:32

and he said make a wish. He told us a harbor to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for a special and a special wish. So one of this hobby, he put up his hands to the sky and he said Oh Allah, I wish that this room was full of gold and jewelry, so that I could give it away straightaway in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala another Sahaba got up right after him and said rather I wish that I had the mountain of offered in gold and jewelry so that I could give it away in the closet Allah. So then at that point, oh my god, Allahu Allah to Allah and who

00:02:33--> 00:03:22

kept quiet. He heard what the people had to say and he kept quiet. So the Sahaba all looked at Omar and said Yama, what is your wish? What is that one special day that you have with Allah subhanho wa Taala. If Allah subhanho wa Taala was going to grant us one day for the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not for us personally. But for Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his own masala Salah wandora and Allah subhana wa tada revealed to you that you can be one door today that would be accepted, but lazada what would be that one door that you make? So amaravati Allahu Allahu taala who said, I wish that this room was full of men like this harbor of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:03:22--> 00:03:28

so that I could spread Islam to this dunya and I could conquer the world. My brothers, my sisters in Islam.

00:03:29--> 00:03:38

What Islam needs is not 1.5 billion people. What Islam needs is a room full of true men and true women.

00:03:39--> 00:04:24

Islam does not need all of this numbers and large numbers coming into it. Actually, perhaps this is a burden on this woman. Rather what we need is a room this room full of true men and true women. It takes one man to change the world. One man Mohammed Salah Salem, one man, the prophets of God, one man it takes to change a century to change an oma in a century. The prophets have said every single century, every single curtain Allah subhanho wa Taala will send one man who will change the oma and in situation and renew for its for it meaning the oma its religion. One man

00:04:25--> 00:04:36

my brother's Islam, everything in Islam tells us to be that one person, every single thing What do you look in the Quran or the sun or in history? Every single thing tells us to be that one person, one man,

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:04:40--> 00:04:57

That's what he focused on. focused on creating that one man and that one woman that will be enough to change the dunya but the prophets of Salaam his greatness was that he left behind 1000s of men and 1000s of women who could change the dunya

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

It is unfortunate

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

They only lived for a few years 70 8090 years but with the hope that their children which is us would come forward and take on their banner and their message, my brother's Islam every single thing in this Deen is about that one man and that one woman. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us meaning meaning erigeron sada Kumar, Allah Allah He, for me whom man Katana, whom women whom I am father Omar, Abdullah, from men from the believers are men, meaning not all believers are real men. Your Man, you're a man perhaps I'm a man. But am I a man?

00:05:45--> 00:05:45

A man.

00:05:47--> 00:06:30

That is a real challenge today to be the man that Allah subhanho wa Taala truly wants us to be. My brothers is Islam in many of the jargon from the believers are men who are truthful to the covenant that they have placed with Allah subhanho wa Taala from them or those that are passed away from them or those that await and they have not changed in their will. The scholars at the seals are in complete agreement that this verse was revealed regarding a man by the name of NSP another who failed to attend the Battle of butter. So he said Oh Allah give me one chance. Or Allah I missed the Battle of butter. And how dare I miss the Battle of butter or war to me I missed the battle about

00:06:30--> 00:07:06

that I wish Oh Allah give me one more chance. Yeah, what do we all miss the Battle of button? Do we not? We all missed being the companions of the solar system did we not? So why not make the same promise to understand other did Allah give me one chance? What Allah give me one chance I will prove to you how much you mean to me. Or Allah give me one chance. Or Allah give me one chance one life one opportunity and I will prove to you Allah how much I love you or Allah give me one chance and I will change myself and I change the oma for you or Allah give me one chance. Where are the true men that makes such promises to Allah? subhanho wa Taala?

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

Will? Where are the men who makes such promises to Allah subhanho wa Taala what value is there in your life today? When you lead your life nine to five working for this cause for this dunya what value is there in your life, my brother and sister Islam to just feed your family in the way that you are? Leaving a life aimlessly without a purpose and a vision? What value is there in your life today? What value do you have for the day? If you died today? Would anyone cry other than your parents and someone who knows you your wife perhaps with the walls miss you? What value do you have for the Obamas asylum today or for the dunia

00:07:46--> 00:07:51

my brother's assistant Islam true men and women is what we need today.

00:07:52--> 00:08:46

This is the need of the hour. in history. We have multiple examples of that. So let her do a UBI mala, a great example. He took over the kingship. And then within 10 years, he took over outputs we find in Mohammed Mahmoud sayfudine the same example the Qatar's they sacked Baghdad, they killed 1.9 million people or 2 million people. As is reported by Urban Cathy rahimullah with our new hire 2 million people were killed in 30 days, blood flow through the streets, rivers of blood rivers of ink would go on the rivers of Euphrates would become rivers of ink from the books that they had thrown into the into the river. My brothers, my sisters in Islam, my brothers, my sister, Islam, the

00:08:46--> 00:08:51

heritage the oma was totally destroyed with the Tatas until one man rose up.

00:08:53--> 00:09:33

Why did he rise up? Because he's he heard what the leader of the Qatar said the leader of the Tatas, wrote a letter to the mama League of Egypt and said from Hulu, the son, the grandson of Genghis Khan, to the king of Egypt, the mama League of Egypt, we will destroy you. We will cut your throats we will rape your women will kill your children. We will destroy your mosque to burn your Quran, we will show the weakness of your god we are the mighty Tatas, nothing can stop us. This is the letter that he wrote to the Malik of Egypt.

00:09:34--> 00:09:58

So Mahmoud sayfudine puts one man in salute came up. And every single wave of Qatar attack was destroyed against Muslim shields. I brought this assistant Islam it's not just in wars like this. But across history we find examples of valor from one man one man is all it takes.

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

Who opened up

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

India for those people who are from India

00:10:04--> 00:10:12

and I see my brothers or sisters over here, my brothers from India. Do you know why you are Muslim today? Because of one man, one man,

00:10:13--> 00:10:24

Muhammad Al cos, one man 17 years old, he opened up India, the first of the Mughals at the age of 17 years old one man it all is all it takes.

00:10:25--> 00:10:45

Brothers from Turkey here, people from Turkey, where are the people from Turkey? Or if you don't know about Turkey, then go to Turkey and have a look. And you find a beautiful museum and Topkapi the Museum of Sultan Mahmud Al Fatiha Sultan Mohamed Mahmoud al factor.

00:10:46--> 00:10:56

And this is the conqueror of Constantinople at the age of 10 years old. He came across the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, may Allah have mercy

00:10:57--> 00:11:04

on the army that opens up Constantinople, oh, what a noble army it will be or what a noble leader that will be.

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

And he said at the age of 10, I will be that person.

00:11:09--> 00:11:44

Madness, a 10 year old saying he will open up Constantinople, when for 800 years, Constantinople was not open. Even the Sahaba could not open up Constantinople. 823 years, Constantinople stood against Muslim shields. The barriers the walls of Constantine was so thick, they had two layers of walls, they could not crush through them Muslim attack after attack over centuries were destroyed. And this 10 year old boy says I'm going to open up Constantinople. Is he stupid? Or is he a man that one man that we need? So at the age of 17 years old.

00:11:45--> 00:11:49

The man is given glad tidings at the age of 19.

00:11:50--> 00:12:07

At the age of 19, his father passes away and he takes over kingship over over the Ottomans. And then guess what? At the age of 21, two years only just two years later, he opened up Constantinople, Allahu Akbar.

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

Two years later, my brother's Islam.

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

You think about this, you think about how much time it takes to change and oma and you will find examples that will be will the EU. Japan it took Japan 25 years after Hiroshima bomb to become become a world power.

00:12:28--> 00:13:12

We know Germany was destroyed between two nations Russia from this side, and UK and USA from this side, pulling Germany apart within 25 years, they became another superpower. Now they say if Germany doesn't support the euro euro will fall. My brothers and my sisters Islam, it takes only one life of one man to change them. That's all it takes. I'm a firm believer in that. I do not wish to believe that change cannot happen in my own mind. I refuse to believe that I refuse to believe that we have to die. And I have to be on my deathbed and on my still struggling and fighting for its life. I refuse to believe that. I believe it is possible in our time to revive the oma to help the oma to

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

allow the oma to escape from its current problems.

00:13:16--> 00:13:22

How? Well let's look at the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says read

00:13:25--> 00:13:45

to Li him. Tea jar attune one by one and victory ly ecommerce salatu wa eata is aka your half una Yeoman Tata Kala woofie boo boo, well absorbed, it is enough. This verse is enough for us enough of a lesson for all the men of the oma today.

00:13:46--> 00:14:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala has men and the true men of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those described in this verse region they are region led to leave empty jar. They are not taken away by Business and Commerce while are better, or buying and selling and

00:14:04--> 00:14:08

economists are on victory lap for remembrance of Allah number one

00:14:09--> 00:14:27

ecommerce Allah establishing the prayer number two, what ether is the car and giving the car number three. You know the Masekela with us is we are very very literalist today. We just literally we hear the word Salah we think it's a legit thing to spray the spray.

00:14:28--> 00:15:00

know Allah Subhana Allah say a common Salah, which means establishing piety in taqwa. In the oma ecommerce. Allah is not just establishing the prayer, establishing everything that will lead to prayer. The first advice Allah subhanaw taala is dhikr of Allah subhanaw taala next advice is to establish piety in your own mind, in your community. And the last advice is the cat What does the cut establish? The cut establishes your love for the community, your care for the weak ones, your support of the people that I need in your community. So my brothers, my sister Islam, three things

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

is a criteria of becoming the true men that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants from us. Number one is to remember Allah.

00:15:09--> 00:15:41

remember Allah constant remembrance of man, Allah subhana wa Tada. Number two, establish and work on building piety in your own, in your family in your own spheres of influence in your own office. Number three. Number three, help the people in your own mind help the people help the people that are in need. Look after the destitute and the poor, strengthen yourself and strengthen your oma in the way. That is what the qat represents. Let's look at number one. What does it mean to remember Allah?

00:15:43--> 00:16:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala says first gurunath Kuru come remember me I will remember you. If Allah said if this was the only verse Allah had revealed regarding Vicar, this would have been enough. If this was the only verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala had revealed regarding the greatness of Vicar, or remembering Allah, this would have been enough. A man passed by Ibrahima destroy one of the great scholars Islam was making Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala. And he was constantly moving his lips lips,

00:16:13--> 00:16:31

constantly constant Vicar, and people will pass by him and think that he was mad. So a man passed by him said, Abraham, Are you mad? Helen Thomas? No. So he looked at this man who told him this and said no, also and so, this is not madness. This is the cure to madness.

00:16:32--> 00:16:45

This is the cure to madness, Vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the escape from the madness that we are in today. We are in terrible madness today. My brother's Islam, terrible madness.

00:16:46--> 00:17:06

We walk around this dunya caring not for what we are doing. We spend our life in this time. In this rat race, even if we win, we are the rat. My brothers and sisters in Islam, this dunya that we're in is a madness. Whereas remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala is our cure.

00:17:07--> 00:17:43

It was Abraham Allah says Allah, Allah say 100 benefits remember Allah subhana wa Tada. from them. He says, remember Allah brings Allah's love from them, he says, remembrance Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthens your heart. from them, he says remains to Allah brings out less help from them. He says, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala extinguishes your sins from them. He says, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala brings your agenda and your thought and your risk to you from them. He says, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala opens the doors of gender for you. And he continues on and on and on and on, of what remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala does to a believer.

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

I mean, what can compare to a believer saying I stopped for less than

00:17:49--> 00:18:04

even taymiyah Rahim Allah He said, when an issue used to be difficult upon me, when an issue of Islam or fix or Hadith used to be tough and difficult on me, I used to make is far more than 1000 times.

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

What do you mean?

00:18:11--> 00:18:32

equity, you've got five fingers, you've got four edges on five fingers 12344 times five is 20 when you count 20 you put one on that hand when you count 20 you count two when you count 23 for 500 the Prophet says I mean every gathering he was stuck through 100 times how easy is that to do?

00:18:33--> 00:18:46

Well law you can make a step farther in 10 minutes 1000 times. The prophets Allah seldom said nothing stops a person's risk from coming to him. Then since then, therefore nothing makes your risk come to you then you're still far

00:18:48--> 00:19:30

remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala is what is missing today. And hustle and bustle. Allah says woe to the people of this dunya that they are passed through this dunya and they have not tasted the sweetest thing in it. What is the sweetest thing all hasn't? He said the sweetest thing is the remembrance of Allah subhana wa Tada. So the first criteria to be the true men is regionalen Learn to leave empty jar wala Berry, and victory lap. Nothing distracts them from the remembrance of Allah. Yeah, honey, nothing should distract you from the remmers Allah, nothing equity. We don't need at the sweet with us all the time. You've got your hands your God given the spear. Use your

00:19:30--> 00:20:00

hands. Use your hands it will witness for you on the Day of Judgment. Wherever you are, make the kind of Allah if you're in a bad place McVicker in your head. remember Allah Allah will remember you and He will answer your prayers and he will strengthen you and He will make you mighty in this dunya and akhira number two he says what ecommerce is solid ecommerce. To establish the prayer What does it mean to establish the prayer? Well, when you pray, we follow

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

I told you to pray that you pray, but to establish the prayer Mills building mustards. Establish the prayer means making sure people can, can pray. Have your attendance around people places a Masjid, in your homes. Make sure that places of prayer, teach your children prayer. Make sure the prayers is happening make sure people learn how to use clippers. The Clippers have been given that everyone is attending. You come to Salamis establishing the prayer in the society and as the alumni say, I love either horrible alcoholic Maharaja lalibela Rama fumo you know what that means? The scholars effect they say the statement when the left in the Quran or Hadith when a word in the Quran, Hadith ha Raja

00:20:41--> 00:21:03

Maha JAL holla. When it is the most common thing that person could do, then the Hadith or the ayah does not mean specifically only that thing it means whatever that thing can contain. So here as soon as Islam said, the ayah the verse says it comment the Salah, establish prayer. So the verse doesn't just mean to establish prayer. It means established taqwa and piety, what prayer represents.

00:21:04--> 00:21:29

So the first thing you do after having remembrance of Allah in your hearts, is that you work towards establishing taqwa, in the community, in your own families in the society that you live in. And the second thing that you do after these after and remembering Allah azza wa jal is that you don't forget those people that are weaker than you that you don't forget your brothers and sisters, those people who are eligible for Zakat, those people who have Huck in your wealth.

00:21:31--> 00:22:16

This is how you strengthen the community. When Salahuddin a UB Rahim Allah when he took over kingship, he didn't go and fight. He didn't go and fight straightaway. He built an army. He built a people who were pious, he built a people that were confident. Then you built the people that were self sufficient and selfless. He first concentrated on their Taekwondo piety. Then he concentrated on helping them becoming self sufficient and selfless. This is your strategy. This is your means. This is how you change and this is how you become the region. My brothers my sister in Islam, my friends, Gemma is not one level. muscular is today we think Jenna is one level or Allah give me

00:22:16--> 00:22:36

agenda. You have been told by your prophet to not not ask Allah for just Jenna. You have been ordered by Rasul Allah says Allah to ask, ask Allah azza wa jal for alpha dosen add either ultimo la Jana first Allah Allah for those don't just ask for any gender asked for those.

00:22:37--> 00:22:47

You know the bushkill s today we think gender is one level. We think gender is one level gender is levels junan in Jena and as the prophets have said,

00:22:48--> 00:23:15

in Jena, it is multiple levels how many levels some of the scholars said is 100 levels that's based on a hadith which is a Muslim, other scholars said 5600 levels. Where do you get that from? From the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that the person who is knows the Quran will be asked to enter agenda and ascend a level with every verse he recites how many verses the number of levels Yes.

00:23:18--> 00:23:20

So my brothers, my sister Islam in hygena.

00:23:22--> 00:23:45

Gina, each level more beautiful women, each level more beautiful homes. Each level more wealth, more money, more pleasures. Why would you give it up? Why? For what? For what? For a stupid home here. It's not even worth it. 30 years it takes to pay it off. On top of that you got to mow your own lawn.

00:23:47--> 00:23:59

You got to fix your own home. Within 30 years, the piping is stuffed up again. Within 30 years you your kids are gonna sound like living in look. I'm gonna go somewhere else. Why would you do that?

00:24:01--> 00:24:38

Imagine the equity is my mobile phone which I have now which is a Samsung phone. Imagine if I had the old Nokia, the 6210 you know those old really old Nokia 6010s that started off 1995 if I had that for would you say? Look at that idiot he still has an old phone from 20 years ago. That's that was the best phone in 1995. If I had the Nokia 6210 in 1995 I would be you know I would be rich. That's the best phone that you could afford. It was 12 $100 at that time 12 $100 was a lot of money was like you know half your salary at that time.

00:24:39--> 00:24:58

Today you joke and laugh at that. I'll tell you what the luxuries and the dunya were chasing after the like the Lamborghinis and whatever cars were chasing after our kids, their grandchildren. Look at my parents. Look at my grandchildren. What stupid jalopy says to drive look at us we drive this

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

Why?

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

would you spend your life for this? Why the hell to get ridiculed by your own grandchildren? So that Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala can show you the futility of what you work for.

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

I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us true men, true men and true women. May Allah subhanaw taala make us true men and True, true women akuto kolyada was stopped for lalibela comala sorry, Mr.

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

Al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah, he was so happy he Amanullah my brothers and my sisters in Islam.

00:25:39--> 00:25:52

You can't become a man by just say I'm a man, you can't become a man by pumping iron. You can't become a man by hanging around other guys who just seem more masculine and more, you know, macho,

00:25:53--> 00:26:40

you can't. All of these things that are happening today, where our our kids and our youth and our brothers and sisters in this community are trying to show their masculinity by shooting each other and killing each other and causing all of this crime. This is not manhood equity. This is stupidity and childishness. This is stupidity, and childishness. People shooting themselves up people shooting each other's mothers. What's going on? Why is this happening equity happening because today, unfortunately, kids can buy guns You see, these are men but they are kids in the bodies of men. To become a true man is to hold you anger. To become a true man is to help somebody to become a true

00:26:40--> 00:27:14

man is to focus on the hair and not the not the evil. To become a true man is to love mankind and to forgive them. Rasulullah saw was a true man. Do you know how I can tell you as a true man? Because in times of peace, he was the most peaceful person in times of war. They used to say the prophets Islam was the most deepest of tickets in battle. deepest tickets about the alarm said and Ali used to fight with two swords, because he was known as two sword fighter right? earlier the Lord said, I used to seek refuge behind our solar system in battles. Imagine that.

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

And he was

00:27:17--> 00:28:03

the one who was more more shy than the Virgin. Who shy than the Virgin, more softer and kinder and gentler. Oh my god. This is what a true man is. Let's become true men. Let's become true men. Stop being stupid. Stop becoming childish. Grow up. Let's grow up. Time to become true men mature. And let's work for the era not for something our kids and grandchildren love that. Let's do something that they are going to be proud. That's it. That's my grandpa. That's my grandpa. He built that for us. He left that for us. He left TV channels he left schools for us. He left hospitals for us. Today, Muslims were downtrodden. But my grandfather what he did in this dunya may Allah have mercy

00:28:03--> 00:28:43

on him today, I'm only able to look further because of standing on the shoulders of my grandfather's work. Let that be the legacy you build for your children. That that let that be the Sydney and Australia that you leave for your children and will lie no one will be prouder than you and no one no nothing will make you prouder than your son saying I want to be like my dad or your grants grandchildren saying I want to be like my grandfather. That's the real hero of Islam. So find the hero within you find the hero within you wake it up. Start to mature yourselves. Grow up. And insha Allah tala focus on this what this verse said. Don't become distracted with business and money and

00:28:43--> 00:28:52

trade. Focus on your dhikr of Allah making the community pious and helping the people and Allah help will come and you will become the true man that is on lazada
