smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa barik ala nabina Muhammad. While early he was such a big Marina Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.

00:00:16--> 00:00:17

My brothers, my sisters in Islam.

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

Let's start off this talk by reminding all of us of what is happening to our oma, as we sit here today.

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

As we sit here today, whilst we are all waiting here, approximately 14,000 people have died in Syria, at the hands of the tire and Bashar

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

we are coming for Bashar.

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

We're coming to get him very soon. And if we don't, there are laws, armies coming the angels. And but Allah there is no escape for him. As we sit here, my brothers and sister Islam,

00:01:00--> 00:01:16

as we sit here, approximately, how long have you guys been in the conference? What two days three days? approximately what, let's say 20 hours, eight hours each day, something like that. Or more than that.

00:01:17--> 00:01:52

If you've been here for about 30 hours or so, approximately within 30 hours, approximately 24,000. Muslims will have left Islam in 24 hours in 30 hours, I'm sorry, approximately 24,000 Muslims will have left Islam. Where are they leaving Islam in Africa, in Indonesia, in Pakistan and Bangladesh, in India, and in many other places where christianization is going on at a pace you cannot imagine.

00:01:54--> 00:02:26

In fact, in the recent Pew report regarding the demographics of the world, it was reported that in the year 1908. When the census was done, there was approximately 9 million Christians in Africa. In the year 2002. When the next report for all of the African continent, what continent was available, the number of Christians rose from 9 million to 516 million.

00:02:29--> 00:02:32

Where in the world are these people coming from?

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

Unfortunately, it is our people that are converting to Christianity.

00:02:38--> 00:03:14

Yes, no doubt we are going to become larger number. Yes, no doubt by 2031 in four people around the world will be a Muslim. Yes, no doubt by 20 32 billion people on this earth. Out of the 8.5 billion people at that time will be Muslim. No doubt about that. No doubt. However, we could be higher in number. We could be bigger in number if we stop our people, the ignorant people unfortunately, the marginalized ones, the poor ones, those who have less information about Islam from leaving our Deen.

00:03:15--> 00:04:04

The time is now to stop all the fitna and the problems that this oma is going through the time is now my brothers and sisters in Islam for you to take on that responsibility in your hands. The time is now to remember the verse of Allah subhana wa tada in Surah Toba when Allah subhanho wa Taala says yeah, are you a Latina man? Oh, man. Ah, cool. Man. mahna comida ki Rockman fue roofie Serbia de la historical to Earth, or the Tamil hayati, dunya, middle era woman to dunya fill in LA poly. What is Allah saying? Oh, people who believe what is wrong with you? When it is told to you, when someone tells you go out in the path of Allah, God struggling in the path of Allah that you stick

00:04:04--> 00:04:49

yourself, throwing yourself to the ground? Are you happy with the life of this dunya what is the life of this dunya in the hereafter except very, very little? My brothers and sisters in Islam, if you prefer this dunya over the Hereafter, then by Allah you end will be like the end of Mubarak. If you prefer this dunya over the hereafter you end will be like the end of qaddafi. If you prefer this dunya over the hereafter By Allah, Allah will give us a disgrace in this dunya and he will not remove it until we return back to him. My brothers and sister Islam Have you seen how Allah disgrace those people who prefer this dunya over the hereafter? What a disgrace. And by Allah Have you seen

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

the example of those people that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed to prefer the hereafter over this dunya al Hassan al Masri Rahim Allah He said in the in that beauty

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

narration from him, or people work for the hereafter work for the few hereafter. For indeed I've seen in my life, anyone who works for the hereafter also gets the dunya. The dunya goes after him runs after him. But I've never found anyone who works for this dunya ever get any piece of the hereafter?

00:05:22--> 00:05:51

Ask yourself, for which cause are you spending most of your time? For which cause Are you loving most of your time? Or for which cause? Do you actually spend day in day out getting up in the morning for which cause my brothers and sisters in Islam, as the scholars Islam said, verily the love of this dunya and the love of the Hereafter, like two scales, when one becomes heavy, the other one becomes light. When the other one becomes heavy, the other one becomes light. My brothers and sister Islam,

00:05:52--> 00:06:06

if our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was here today, and he said, Oh, people all mostly mean, come with me. Come with me towards this or that cause? What answer would we give Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam

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

in the Battle of other the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood there. And it was very evident. This was just before the Battle of the prophets Aslam stood amongst his Sahaba. And it was very, very clear that a battle was going to take place. But the Sahaba had not come out of Medina prepared. They had blunt swords, they have hardly any shields. They did not have any armor. They were only 315 or 16 in number. That's it. There are only a few camels amongst them, no horses. And here was Quraysh that have come with their father and with the howdy that come with their, with their pride in the heart and with their iron and all the weaponry. So here the prophets has some

00:06:54--> 00:07:44

said, advise me or Sahaba. So Abu Bakr and Omar stood up Listen to this. Listen to this Abu Bakr and Omar said, You're a surah Allah do as Allah commands you. For indeed we will not say to you, as the banjo is try instead to Moosa go you and fight you and your Lord, and we will stay here rather we will say go you fight you and your Lord and we will follow you in it. Then the Prophet system still wasn't happy. He still kept quiet and then in still said, advise me. It was not enough. advise me. So a man by the name was sad at the more at the honored man of unser stood up and he said perhaps you're a pseudo law, you're referring to us? Perhaps your rasulillah you're referring to us, the

00:07:44--> 00:08:30

young men and the young women that said that we will help you when you come to Medina, perhaps you're referring to us. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes, I'm referring to you. So look at the answer of Saturday. Look at the answer of this man sadhana mahad the one who when he passed away the throne show from sadness of the death of sadness, what is sad and what I'd say your rasulillah we have promised you that when you come to Medina, we will support you with a blood and a sweat. And we are not going to go back on our word. Yara Salalah take us wherever you want to take us. He continued and he said yeah, Rasul Allah, if you drive us into the ocean, by Allah, we will follow

00:08:30--> 00:09:06

you in it, even if that means that we are going to be drowned. Yeah, Rasul Allah, He continued, and he said, You're rasulillah we are patient in battle. We are truthful when we make the enemy no one amongst us will turn our backs Not a single man, your rasulillah perhaps Allah will show you from us that will please your heart about us to let go and fight and we will follow you in it. This is the answer we're looking for. This is the answer we're looking for. This is the answer that made the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smile.

00:09:07--> 00:09:18

Awake my brothers and sisters in slam awake. The time is now. Yeah, you are Latina mano ma la comida tienen la cumin. ferrovie Sevilla la hisako

Help your Muslim brothers and sisters that you stick to the earth. Are you happy with the life of this dunya what is the life of this dunya in the hereafter except very, very simple, very

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

loans that it doesn't even worthy of mention.

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

My brothers and sisters Islam

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

Takayama Rahim Allah. He wrote in his new Nia, very amazing poetry. One of the most amazing things that he wrote in his no Nia is that he said horrible. Men are great tiller the holy Pula, who follow bearbrick enough Siva Shivani. What did he say? He said, mankind runs away from the slavery that they were created for. And so Allah punish them by being slaves to their own selves and slaves to the shaitan. Yes, Allah. How true is this? We are running away from one slavery. We are all slaves of Allah azza wa jal, we're running away from that slavery. So Allah has made us slaves to other things. My brother has assisted Islam, very early in the history of Islam. We find examples of when

00:10:51--> 00:11:37

the young men and young women rise up that Islam flourishes and shines. We find example of Islam, that when the young men and young women women say I am going to help Islam, then by Allah, even the Shabaab even the older generation will follow. Do you know my brothers and sisters in Islam, that even Abu Bakar and Omar followed a young man, even Abu Bakr and Omar, who were the shakes of of the Muslim a, after the death of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Do you know that even they followed a young man and 18 year old young man Do you know when in the Battle of Florida, which is the battle that just happened right after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away? When a group of

00:11:37--> 00:12:19

the Sahaba that were on the fringe? They had accepted Islam? Some Arabs from the desert had accepted Islam on the fringe, but they became disbelievers? Why did they become disbelievers? They said that we will not give you the card anymore, we will withhold the card from you no longer is the card obligatory on us. So this was known as a holdover with that Do you know who was a general army general commanding the army over the whole of the army? Do you know who the Army General was? The Army General was an 18 year old boy 18 year old boy by the name Osama bin Zayed Hibbert rasulillah salam, the Beloved of Rasul Allah says Allah 18 year old boy, yes, Allah. He was the general Do you

00:12:19--> 00:12:36

know who was in the army? Abu Bakar Omar was man, Ali, all the xr shamatha Shireen bill Jana, the 70 Sahaba that fought the battle of butter. Hundreds of the Sahaba that had fought other battles was being led by this 18 year old boy.

00:12:39--> 00:13:09

My brothers and sisters who are young in the audience, if you have a passion and a vision for this oma and you rise up and lead the Ummah, the oma will follow you. They will follow you. The Messiah will follow you, the leaders of the oma will follow you I will follow you. Mercy mission will follow you. If only you can inspire us to a vision. And if only you can inspire us towards a direction and wake up this oma from the slumber that we have fallen into

00:13:10--> 00:13:44

my brother's a system Islam. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was a young boy was a young boy when he took the affairs in his hands. What did he do? He waited till his people had left that he took the axe and he broke all the big idols, all the idols, except the biggest one. What was Abraham's age at that time? A very simple 12 or 13 years old, or 14 years old, a kind of fussy young boy Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, at that age, he wanted to show his people the truth about ship

00:13:45--> 00:14:23

called New Sami and a certain year, the guru whom you call Allah who Ibrahim, they said, We heard a young boy mentioning them his name is Ibrahim. So just because you're young doesn't mean you can't have their face in your hands. Just because you're young doesn't mean you can't correct the people. You are young, it doesn't matter. You are young Allah has given you Energy Act now the old man needs your help now. My brother and sister Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran about us horrible of dude, who Tila is horrible of dude. And that in Baku? Is whom Allah wa whom Allah

00:14:25--> 00:15:00

who were does horrible of dude, as horrible of due to the people that were being thrown into the fire, because they didn't believe that this king was God. And so the king, there was a young boy amongst them, who was inspired by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Do you know the story? The young boy, he said, If you say if you say Bismillah when you throw the arrow, then it will be able to kill me if you don't say Bismillah will not be able to kill me. So the man said Bismillah and he shot the arrow and it killed so everyone believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala because they saw that the king could not kill

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

The people until he had said Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. So my brother and sister Islam it's a young boy who saved this oma, a young boy. In surah. Yaseen.

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

We find that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent three messengers, three messengers, first two messengers and then he gave him a third one to a particular town, three messengers to one town, yes, Allah.

00:15:24--> 00:15:46

And then what happened? The town did not believe in all of these three messengers. So what happened? Allah says in Surah, Yaseen wa amin aka Sal Medina, T. Raja, no, yes. Kala Jaco. Amitabha el mursaleen it. Allah is Allah Kumara wahoo Mata Don Juan Malia la batalla de Soto Ronnie la historia

00:15:48--> 00:15:54

de Ali Hassan II Regina rushman obito latonia Nisha wala

00:15:55--> 00:16:39

in either laminar Ptolemy, and the What did they do? They killed him. A young boy came running from the furthest part of the town, saying he told me all my people believe in these messengers, believe in the ones who have not been who are giving you the hidayah not asking any money in compensation, and why should I not believe in these messengers are in Allah when Allah is the one who gave me life? And verily the shirt is gold. So what did the people do that killed him? And then when he killed him, Allah coats him in the Quran I say, yeah later komiya Allah moon Bhima for Ali Robbie which Allah mini Amina McCraney Oh how I How I wish my people knew how Allah has praised me and made

00:16:39--> 00:16:45

me from the honored ones. He was a young boy at that time, a young boy my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:16:46--> 00:17:21

we find in seal Allah mono Bella, there are the hubby Rahim Allah mentions of the very first person to ever raise a sword In the name of Allah was a young boy by the name of the Lebanese obey. He accepted Islam at the age of eight. And at the age of 12. He put his sword up he took a sword and he was walking in the province and saw him and said yeah, Zubair, where are you going? He said, your rasulillah I heard someone so insulting you. I'm going to take this sword and strike his neck with it. So the Prophet says seller made dua for him smile, and told him to go back to his family was too young.

00:17:23--> 00:17:43

Yes, Allah, the first person to say the sword in the eyes of Allah in the path of Allah was a young boy at the age of 12. sided Nabil waqqas radi Allahu taala who said, I attended the Battle of butter and I did not have a single hair on my face. Not a single hair on my face. How Young was he? how young was he?

00:17:45--> 00:18:31

Mohammed bin al Qasim Mohammed bin al Qasim, the great conqueror. He conquered sinned and he conquered the northern parts of India at the age of 17 years old. Mohammed, Al Fatah, Sultan, Muhammad Fatah, the turd The one who conquered the Turkish man who conquered Constantinople 800 years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, Indeed Constantinople will be conquered, what a beautiful army, that army will be and what a great conqueror that conquer will be. Who was at the age of 10. He said, he was sitting with a chef and the chef was reading this hadith out to him. So he said, insha Allah I will be that man. In sha Allah will be that man at the age of 18 years

00:18:31--> 00:18:35

old. He conquered Constantinople at the age of 18 years old.

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

My brother's just an Islam.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

I don't know how many more examples you want me to give you.

00:18:45--> 00:18:57

But the Quran and Sunnah and the history of the Muslim men are replete with examples of how when the Shabaab and when the youth rise up, then Islam has a voice and Islam has a chance.

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

I am no longer a sharp

00:19:01--> 00:19:46

I have white hairs in my beard, and I white hairs in my head lahoma Stan, I'm not sharp anymore, but my hope and my dreams and my aspirations rests with those brothers and sisters who have yet to have white hairs on their hair, and on their faces. My vision, my hope, my dreams all rests with you all. That if amongst you, Allah subhanho wa Taala inspires people of action, then but Allah this oma has a hope. And if amongst you, Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't inspire action, then this almost truly lost. In the authentic narration. We hear that Omar Abdel Aziz radi Allahu taala and who who was known as the fifth Khalifa Masha Allah, he had

00:19:48--> 00:20:00

he had a son and the son of our of that disease rhodiola Talon, who was known as Abdul Malik. Abdul Aziz used to say Alhamdulillah Hilary jolly was 11

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

mean Utley Abdul Malik Ebony, Glory be to Allah who has given me a helper from my family. Abdul Malik my son, Abel Raja will handle your hem Allah. He said Abdul Malik was a very righteous and pious man, a young boy, who was a very righteous and pious person. He used to help his father in the affairs of the of the dunya and of the dean, and unfortunately, Abdulmalik passed away before he's passed away. However, this is the lesson. Even Roger continues and he says, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave Abdulmalik to Ahmed Abdul Aziz as a lesson to all the sons of the dunya so that they help their fathers and they help their families in doing that which is good in this dunya Yes, Allah.

00:20:48--> 00:21:14

My answer my my request to all my sons in the audience, to all the brothers and sisters, who our sons and daughters, help your father help your mother help your families in achieving that which is great for this. If they are not awake, you wake them up. If they're asleep, wake them up gently. Tell them but Allah to work for the author of or indeed if they do so they will have the dunya as well. Otherwise they will have nothing of the hereafter.

00:21:15--> 00:22:04

But brothers and sisters in Islam, the daughter of Sophia, Sophia, and even Siri, the daughter even sunny rhodiola Juana she used to say, Yama, Shabbat Emmylou for in new light will Amalfi Shabbat. She used to say Oh, the Shabaab or the young men and women in the audience, or the young men and women in the oma work now, for indeed I have seen in my life. Verily, the hard work happens once whilst you're young. So my young brothers and sisters in Islam, the time is now for you to do something for this oma, the time is now for you to do something make a real definite pact with you and Allah subhanho wa Taala. to divorce this dunya and to marry the hereafter. The time is now for

00:22:04--> 00:22:53

you to make a real impact in this dunya Allah because the oma really needs your help to all my elder brothers and sisters in the audience, to all my elder brothers and sisters, those that are not Shabaab, by Allah I have some advice for you. And that advice is what al Bukhari radi Allahu taala, who was mentioned from him. It was reported that Bihari radi Allahu taala and who, as he was getting older and older, he was getting even more eager about Hadith. The more older he was getting, the more eager he got about Hadith until Eman, Muslim radi Allahu said about al Bukhari Rahim Allah, what did he say? He said, Well, Allah He, towards the end of the lives of Al Bukhari, he used to get

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

up 20 times at night.

00:22:55--> 00:23:03

20 times at night, you will be restless sleeping at night. Why? Because you would get up in order to write some heads down, that was on his mind.

00:23:04--> 00:23:21

Also, even again, one of the great scholars of the Hanbury mother, he said, Well, now that I'm 18 years old, I find that my desire for helping the oma and for gaining knowledge is even more severe than it was when I was 20 years old.

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

My brothers and sisters who are elder in the audience, you don't have the distractions that youth have. You don't have the distractions that you would have you are wise, you have life experience under your belt, you know, but Allah the truth about many things a Shabaab is still confused about. So focus yourself, focus yourself now on gaining knowledge focus yourself now on helping the oma

00:23:49--> 00:24:09

to where will you take your wealth and money to where will you take it but Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said an authentic narration in Mustafa Muhammad, the children of Eben Adam will not cease to love this dunya and whatever is in it until his stomach is full of dirt in the grave.

00:24:10--> 00:24:54

We will not cease to love this dunya all of us loves this including me but Allah, we will continue to desire money and wealth and provisions until our bellies are filled with the dirt of our grace. But Allah, it is for this reason why righteousness is to give up that which you dislike to my elderly brothers and sisters in the audience. I urge you all to write in your wills that you give half your wealth away, or even a one third of your wealth away, or wants to still alive give half your wealth away in the claws of Allah. Find good Islamic organizations find good charities find a Muslim cause finds a Muslim in that I need give half your wealth away. Give half your wealth away.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

What will you do with that wealth, it will stay for you in the hereafter Allah will give it back to you

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

Allah will save your face on that day, Allah will build your shade on that day, the time is now before you pass away, don't wait till the Angel of Death comes when your wealth is already in the won't buy your inheritance. Otherwise, do you love the wealth of your inheritance more than your own wealth? right in your wills? Now, give your money away in the closet, Allah now spend your time now in helping Allah and is the how much more wealth Do you want to earn? How much more time is there left by Allah, you already are going to enter the grave very soon, but Allah, if not, if not because of your health, then at least because of other reasons. My brothers and sisters, this is the

00:25:40--> 00:25:50

reality. This is the reality from the bottom of my heart, I asked all my brothers and sisters to really wake up and do what they can for them. And my final advice

00:25:51--> 00:26:33

is for Allah and the Messiah and the leaders have this oma to the dilemma and the Messiah for the leaders of this oma My advice is for them to come together and have a clear idea what they want to do. We are working all of us in different fields. We're working all of us in different spheres, different organizations pulling in different ways. It doesn't really help much. It helps when we work together. It helps when we complement each other. We don't have to be under one body, but that's not required. What is required, however, is to complement each other and support each other is to find out what each other's visions are and to support that. And but Allah to my mission is and

00:26:34--> 00:27:13

my advice for you all is to become true leaders. Just because you're a chef does not make you an alum does not make you a scholar does not make you a leader. Just because you're a chef doesn't make you a leader. A leader is a servant of his people. A leader is a visionary, a leader is someone who does the action and shows by his values. Just because you're a chef, you can't be a leader. Don't assume leadership just because you're a chef. Prove it with your actions. Prove it with your vision. Prove it with the advice that you give the Shabaab guide this Shabaab because they don't have a clarity of vision, guide them towards what you want them to do and where you want them to go.

00:27:13--> 00:27:21

Something that is devoid of self benefit. Something that is clearly towards the benefit of this of this oma, my brothers and sisters Islam.

00:27:23--> 00:27:37

Well, la isla de la ilaha illa Allah, if we spend our time struggling for the claws of this Deen, Allah subhanho wa Taala will make our lives very, very beautiful. Let me tell you a little bit about my life

00:27:38--> 00:28:24

A few years ago, or just a few months ago was very difficult, very difficult. Working as a medical doctor living in Australia, trying to make ends meet, trying to find enough money to look after the rent and the family, trying to provide for the woman whatever it needs, doing the medical work, at the same time as doing the Tao work as much as possible. It was a nightmare. nightmare. Well like the health suffers as you can see, the body suffers, the mind suffers, everything suffers will lie. But but allow the one who perseveres Allah has amazing life for him. My life now, I'm sure if you knew how great my life is, now you would fight me for it. If you knew what is in my heart, how much

00:28:24--> 00:29:06

peace I have, how much thankfulness I have, how much happiness I have in my heart, you would fight me for it. Because by law, there is nothing like working for the cause of Allah. Every day I wake up and all that's on my mind is Allah and his cause. Every day I wake up and all I wake up to is perhaps a meeting for a mercy mission work somewhere or a phone call from a brother who needs something regarding that hour. Can you imagine that? how Allah subhanho wa Taala has made my sleep and my my waking time, all for his cause. And this is by Allah mercy from him. This is not praising myself online. But this is by asking and telling you about what is happening to me asking you to

00:29:06--> 00:29:51

make similar choices for your own life. Because we all can work for the hereafter but Allah, it only needs a little bit of courage. Yes, my pay scale has taken a hit. Yes, I have less money now than I had before. Yes, I have a bit more difficulty in that regard. But But Allah Allah gives in other ways you cannot imagine. Allah gives in ways you cannot imagine. Allah gives ease just by moving to a different country. My cost of living is almost half. I eat the same food, I drive a better car, I live in a better home. I now have home help to come and help my wife at home. I have a Quran teacher that is the cousin of one of the great scholars of Medina teaching my kids who earn I have all of

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

this now I never had this before. Verily I found in my life, that when you take a path in order to help Allah, Allah helps you in ways you

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

cannot imagine. How much would it cost me to bring a chef over from Medina to teach my kids over here, it would have cost me a lot of money. How much would it have cost me to live in the same house somewhere here? My brothers and sisters in Islam, I asked you all to make similar sacrifices for the cause of Allah. Find wherever you are. A path to make Allah subhanho wa Taala and his Deen Supreme. Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever age you are, make your cause only for the sake of Allah azza wa jal work for the hereafter. Verily, this dunya will come running to you. I promise. Our chef Jaffer Jaffa chef Jaffa rhodiola. Allah, he told me, he told me and he told me many times you have

00:30:44--> 00:31:28

to do what you love money will follow. When I am doing what I love and money is following me. I do what I love and I have enough of money will hamdulillah and I'm not going hungry. Now is my family going hungry? The biggest thing that I have found that used to shackle me and probably shackles others is fear. Don't be afraid. Don't be afraid is nothing to fear at all except Allah azza wa jal bravery is to overcome fear. How can you be brave unless you overcome fear? Are you saying leaders are not afraid? Or you say I don't have fear in my own heart when I do something, I have so much fear about love, but I overcome it with our colon Allah, I overcome it by thinking about the

00:31:28--> 00:32:12

consequences. I overcome it, but depending on Allah, and by reading for an and by string masala, I overcome my fear my brothers and sisters, so must you overcome your fear. Do not be afraid of loss of wealth. Do not be afraid of poverty. Do not be afraid about Allah that your family will give up on you. Continue in this path and never give up. Believe me believe in my brother's Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala has written 50,000 years before we were created, how much wealth and how much money we will get. And by Allah we will not pass away until every bit of this world comes to us. No one here will die until we get exactly what Allah has written for us. So my brothers Islam, it

00:32:12--> 00:32:31

doesn't matter but Allah, it doesn't matter. You live here or you work for this company, or that company. The provider is the same. The provider is the same It is Allah subhanho wa Taala believe this in your heart, and the stronger you believe in it. But Allah the stronger you become brothers in Islam, I remember the BBC report.

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

This BBC reporter went to Palestine and was interviewing this little girl whose house has been demolished her house, this poor girl, her house had been demolished. So this BBC reporter was visibly very, very worried and concerned. You could see him almost about to break down and cry because of the sadness that he felt for this little girl that was in front of him. So he put the microphone to this little girl and said, What would you do now now that your house has been destroyed? How will you live? So this little girl said in Arabic, which the BBC reporter did not understand at that point, you know what she said? He said, The one who provides for the birds will

00:33:14--> 00:33:58

provide for me insha Allah. So Allah, Allahu Akbar, for children like this. Allahu Akbar. For children like this. If I knew this daughter, I would have married this girl to my son, yes, Allah. Amazing class. Amazing kalakuta Allah subhanho wa Taala amazing token Allah subhanho wa Taala. The one who provides for the birds will provide for you. The one who provide to the birds day in day out, will provide for you believe this in your hearts. believe this in your hearts. And remember the verse Allah azza wa jal in the Quran, when he says in Surah Toba in Kannada what Abner was logical. What if one of them was to come?

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

To Moo ha, what ijarah to talk Shona Casa de la masa keynoter Dona habla la camino de la What are solely what you heard in fi sebelah, he Fatah, Basu hachiya to lobby Emery, well, la Hola, como el ferocity. Allah says, say, oh, Mohammed, Salah Salem to the Muslim mean and the macmini all around the world, say to them what say if your fathers and your sons and your brothers and your wives and your family members and the money in which you have earned the commerce in which you fear decline? The houses that you love, are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger as struggling in his cause, than wait till the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes and Allah does not love a

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

transgressing people. Mm hmm Rahim Allah said, the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that Allah will make you a disbeliever is that if you love all of these things other than a lion is messenger and struggling for

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

The Tao Allah will make you a disbeliever Allah will make you a castle. And that's exactly what happens to us. We go to sleep, wake up in the future and Masha Allah, Allah we haven't played fudger we go to sleep. And sometimes we don't even care about Isha. Because we are so tired we go to sleep. That's what the prophets have said a day will come. When a person will go to sleep a Muslim wake up a cafe, I will go to go to will wake up a cafe and go to sleep a Muslim. And this is precisely what's happening to us. If you think about Allah, that this is not disbelief then wait till the Day of Judgment to see what Allah azza wa jal says, My brothers and sisters we cannot prefer the love of

00:35:42--> 00:36:24

anything else, the love of Allah azza wa jal alladhina amanu shadowhawk burn lilla if you do not do it for the fear of Allah, and the fear of his punishment that leads to it for the love of Allah and His love. Who is there amongst us who doesn't love Allah azza wa jal who is the amongst us who doesn't profess to love Allah subhanho wa Taala. If this is the case, that we love Allah, that we must show how much we love Allah so within this dunya when Allah azza wa jal will ask us or Abdi How did you demonstrate my love? You love me? How did you demonstrate my love? What have you done to prove your love to Allah azza wa jal? What have you done to prove your love to Allah azza wa jal?

00:36:24--> 00:36:29

Let me give you the example of finally of this man by the name of underserved another.

00:36:31--> 00:37:23

radi Allahu taala understood another was a Sahabi who did not attend the Battle of butter. He was not able to attend the Battle of butter. So he felt really, really sad. So he made a promise to Allah in his heart. Yeah, Allah, you give me one more chance. Your luck, give me one chance. And I will prove to you how much I love you and I adore you. Your luck. Give me one chance and I will prove to you how much you and your deen means to me in my heart. And so the Battle of arcane and unanswered another saw that the battle on the day of the Battle of butter. He looked up and he woke up at the time of budget. And then the Sahaba saw saw him putting his head up like this, having a

00:37:23--> 00:38:08

big smell. And then he looked up and he found sides of the house next to him sitting side by side in the rehearsal Jana, do you know what he said? Well, he said, I can smell john coming from the hood. So another went on that day, and he fought in the Battle of butter and he died. And no one could recognize unless it another except by the tip of his fingers. His his daughter, his sister was the only one who could recognize understood another only because of the tip of his fingers because of the number of cuts and bruises on the body on the front part of his face, and the amount of dirt and the amount of blood that it feels his face and his front part of his body only by the tip of his

00:38:08--> 00:39:00

fingers. So Allah revealed a verse to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam at that point. Mina Mina Raja Lune sada Kuma de la la familia hohman Katana home woman Humayun 30 mama but De Luca de la. Allah says, verily from the believers are men who have been true to the covenant with Allah from them are those that are passed away, and from them are those that awake and by law they have not changed in their determination at all. Ask yourself to make a covenant between you and Allah in your heart, or Allah give me one chance, or Allah give me one chance show me the way how I can make a difference in your dunya how I can make a difference in your life. Or Allah show me away. My brothers and sisters

00:39:00--> 00:39:34

Raise your hands and make this work to Allah. Raise your hands and make this to Allah give me one chance. Show me the way that I can prove that I love you. Show me how you're Allah show me the path so I can prove to you how much I love you and how much your deen means to me and how much you mean to me Allah one chance, make a promise to Allah stick to it. And Allah as promised will become true to you. He will never punish you. He will not punish you. He will forgive you and enter you into beautiful Jana where you can spend time with Allah, one to one between you and him alone.
