This is the
this is the
Salam Alaikum peace be unto you. anaco salam wa rahmatullah COVID. Thank you, thank you very much Fine Time, give us here on the deen show people who can read a little bit about you, and to see some of the other shows that we've done with you. But wasting your time is short. Time is short, and the matter is serious. You know, we get a lot of emails, and people want to change. You know, they watch some of the shows. And they come from other ways of life. And they see these things, you know, they don't make sense. God being a man, turn it to three in one, someone dying from them says God committed suicide, you know, or they feel like you know what, I didn't believe in God, but my innate
nature sound telling me there is a God. But you know, when the going gets tough, then they get going. But then when the the new girlfriend pops up, or they get invited to the party, and they start to talk about these serious things, not the cool thing.
Money, fast cars, distractions. So we want to help to give some encouragement, you know, how can people really take this matter seriously, and to get on the ball, because Islam is so rational is logical. If you take the time, you'll see that this can come from no other than a Creator of the heavens and earth. And some people have even acknowledged this, but they're having a hard time submitting, and doing all the good things that God Almighty has time to do because they got other things on the mind that God can't let go to girl to go catalog. Well, the guy didn't want to get married at doing it. test drives down. So how can we give some real advice? Talk to us, talk to us,
please? Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen was listening to you and his medical or physical, you have a good description of what's going on out there.
But the person first should be patient with himself, you know, and we should be patient with each other.
allowes messenger says mom, and I've been meaning Illa Allah who them there is not a believing slave except that he commits a sin. Fail it in bother feanor time after time again, or he commits a particular sin, and he never stops doing that sin until he leaves this dunya The fact of the matter is that a lot of creative man, sinful and forgetful, either luckier than when he's reminded he remembers. And this is in the end. We Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Ninja, fill out the halifa I'm making the earth a califa a deputy. The angel said galuh Atocha alluvia man you see doofy How are your speaker Dima? Are you going to put something in the earth you're going to put someone in the
earth who's going to cause corruption and spill blood? So the intrinsic nature
of man is to be mistaken and cause corruption and do things wrong? So when he realizes that either do Kira doctor when he's reminded though, he remembers, you know, and that's what we have to first and foremost understand that we will fail. When we take Shahada we say I swear
In a children's poem called children's fit, it says, I swear to do a loss command and not to do one thing haha. That's what we say in the poem, teaching the children how to, you know, understand the fic. And that's what everybody says, I swear to do a loss command and not to do one thing. But when I fail, I will repent, before I get a punishment from up above a law most high before my soul is caused to die. So the first thing that we tell the individual is that you will make mistakes. As a human, you're going to make mistakes. However, don't be wrong and strong repent. As soon as you realize you're making a mistake, turn to alarm repent. Don't be like those people saying no is not
allowed to say, I will repent. Maybe one day. For those who think like that we'll find the devil has possessed his mind. He plans to drop his soul in hell turn to a law to break his spell, say and stuff for the Lucha tubu la, that's all the Muslim has to say. So I'm not going to approach it first by saying you're not going to do any wrong, you're going to do wrong, you're going to fall victim to your ego and your desires sometime. So since that's the case, we've been left like that. No, we've been taught how to respond when we made a mistake. And that's through repentance, repent to Allah and a stuck federal law, I seek the forgiveness of Allah to LA and I turned back to Allah and
recognize that I'm the slave of Allah, because that's the original thing that we recognize that were the slaves of Allah, we're not talking about someone who doesn't know this. We're talking about someone who knows this. So this is the case, we have to repent. And after we recognize that, that we're going to fail, and then we're going to repent, but we just need to remind and that the reminder benefits in return, meaning that the reminder benefits the believers, then we do with the advice of the Prophet said, he said, be around those who make you shy. Okay, stick with those people that make you feel shy to do those things. Why don't you go and make you know, Xena with your
girlfriend on the mimbar. Because you know that that people are going to stop you physically. So then you need to if you're feeling these feelings, and these are not unnatural feelings, you know, then you need to stick and be around those people that make you feel shy. And we can talk further about other things that people can do to distract them from these distractions. Because the last part of what Allah says Allah hakkoda Katha, you know, getting a lot of things, accomplishing a lot of things distracts us yeah.
Until we visit the graves. So you know, the way that we people are distracted, look at the beautiful skyline. This is a whole real bit and it'll distract us going out to this place and going out to that place. But we play a role in our own destruction, because we are attracted to these things. And these things, keep us from focusing on the real deal was the real deal. The real deal is that we are living in a temporary situation that eventually is going to end. And then the real situation, the long lasting situation is going to become our reality.
And so we're not told to live and not have fun. There are lots of things we can have fun with. But we're only been told to stay away from those things that's gonna harm us, in this world, and in the hereafter. So these things like someone who quite like Haram, or harmful things, things that are prohibited and that's God's law because God knows best Allah knows best Is that right? Right. So these things are bad for us anyway, like, you know, okay, you have a natural desire to want to be with a man a woman want to be a man want to be with a woman and a woman want to be with the man, but not outside of marriage. So if you have this, this this desire, it's not something unnatural, but
now to go and sleep around with someone who's not your wife or your husband. You don't want to do that. Listen, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, angiogenin in St. Lucia watty mina Nisa, Allah says that he made men desire woman and made woman desires and men want and desire and lust after these woman, you know, however, so the desire for a man to be with a woman and a woman to be with a man is in the corner, and yeah, so it's a natural desire, a lawful desire. However, you're not supposed to fulfill that desire, except through certain ways. Like you're hungry, right? You don't eat with your foot. You don't stick it in your ear or in your eye or your nose, because it doesn't help that way. Yeah,
you put it in your mouth, and you chew it and you cook the food before you eat it. You have to marry the lady before you can be with her and she has to marry the man before they can be together. Otherwise, you're done.
To get sick, just like if you eat the raw meat and the raw food without cooking or cleaning it and doing the things that are supposed to be done before you eat, we can understand that we need to understand it in the metaphysical world as well. Yeah, let's take a break. We'll be right back with more here on a deep show. I just want to say very simple, massive is the main screen. One of the beautiful things about our religion of Islam is the emphasis on direct ritual and prayer to God directly. There is no intermediary, the lights will go on after the party, and the party will end. It's very simple and very clear. There are no superstitious rituals, no strange incantations Time's
running out, and you might not make it till tomorrow. And this is something that we need to think about.
Back here on today's show, and we're talking to Shaykh Abu Toba and living in the real world we got real situation is tough. You got a lot of fitna a lot of trials, a lot of tests, you got a lot of things tantalizing you calling you and say sometimes you burn it up inside. And so we want to give some some some some good advice. So you'd mentioned marriage, get married, if you feel in this. Now Can someone you mentioned how merciful, I will do the loving God that we worship, you know, a law he's most merciful. And there's always hope you started off with that. Can someone use that as an excuse when they know that fornication? adultery is is something that is not acceptable in Islam,
some major sin because someone used that now they know that and then they go commit the crime in the center head, well, God's most merciful, he'll forgive me because he's full of Rama, he's full of mercy. And then they go and do that continue to do it, not lowering their gaze, and then acting upon these desires. What do you got to say about that? Okay, what I say about this is that as Muslims, we have to recognize and understand the purpose of life, the purpose of life or molecule general INSA inla, Li Abu, Allah says, I have not created the genies or the humans for any other purpose except for to worship me. Right? Then after that a lot tells us the story of the atom and the chiffon and
how the Shabbat is jealous, big jealous of the human being, that he was given this position, that the human really doesn't understand how he gotten in shape and feels he deserves it more. So then Allah says, well, another one nakamichi immunol how we will do it you will not submit lm Wiley when I'm fully with Tamara Baba, she is nobody, he says, I am testing you. So then we realize, after understanding that we are here to worship Allah, that this whole life is just a test. Allah says, has he been nice and neutral and yaku, Amina afternoon, Allah says, are the man think he's gonna be left alone, on just his statement, that he believes in a law and he's not going to be tested. Allah
said, we have tested those that came before, and we're going to make it clear those people who are truthful to their pledge, their oath, and those who are liars, you know, and they're not going to be truthful. So that's the one aspect of it that you can't, you're not going to get away with saying, okay, I lost my school, but he's testing you. And if you fail the test, then you open yourself up to the punishment, or the the the results of failing the test, and you're being tested daily. And he told us how, by by your desires, okay? So you repent too long, and you try you strive your best to move forward. You know, as we said, again, in a children's poem, repentance will not be correct
until I'm sad and feel regret for what I've done. And I declare not to do that sin again. Repentance will not be correct, until I'm sad and feel regret for what I've done. And I declare not to do that sin again. And if still sinning, I must stop all sinful deeds right on the spot. You know, and so that's, that's the conditions that a person has to have for making repentance. But let's look at it another angle, okay? We don't want to just be, you know, responsive. We want to be proactive. Islam does not say you can't get married. Islam does not say you can't like girls, and you can't have fun. You want a woman, go get married, that's a protection for you. You know, get married, allows
messonnier promoted, get married and have lots of children. This is the thing and you know, you strive Of course, the man has to be able to take care of his family, this other other things he can do to with his time. The Quran is the most important book in the world, we say, you know, that the most credible Haji had the Mohammed the most important and the best speech is the speech of Allah in the Quran. So, anything you want to learn is in the end, instead of watching a 30 minute sitcom, where you know, it's corny, you know what's going to happen is basically wasting your time and distracting you. You can sit down for that. 30 minutes and
Memorize three lines or five lines of code and, and that will not only help you in this world protect you from what's going on. It's a lot of fun because now you know something that you didn't know before, and it'll be something that you can use in hereafter. Also, you can learn how to fight. A lot of guys. Nowadays, you know, you have the MMA, though, what does it mean? Mixed Martial Arts, martial arts, you know, so you can get involved with some sports, not just a sport, yeah, but positive sports, you know, just going out and I'm not saying basketball is bad, but if someone jumps out to beat you up, especially nowadays, with all the Islamic phobia and everything that you need,
you want to get a wife You better learn how to protect your wife, you know, you want to be Muslim, you better know how to fight and the prophet SAW I saw him he promoted us learning how to fight and how to defend ourselves not to be bullies, but so not to get bullied there's a lot of bullies so we don't want to get bullied right so Hands up, you have no right to touch me and now you have a right to defend yourself God given right it is a God given right and it's a lot of fun. A lot of fun for brothers to learn how to wrestle and even sisters to learn how to fight and protect themselves. We hear about things girls getting the chemos pulled off and they can know how to protect themselves
just so they can get away without promoting women fighting guys in the street or anything like that. So this would be something where now you can do something positive you can get involved in okay the study circles be around like you said righteous people people who make you feel shy go fill people this the ways to a lot of men. Yeah, a guy came to Imam Malik and he said, You know what, you run your mouth too much and he magmatic was a famous scholar. He said You talk too much Imam Malik you always given classes and sometimes you're wrong you come back and you change it the precision and the amount of responded saying the ways to Allah on many soroptimist the team is wide and smooth.
Some people get there by fasting. Some people get there by giving charity some people get there by cleaning the masjid some people get there by doing all this is so many different things by offering Salah you know, some people go there by teaching and I'm pleased with the way the law made easy for me. So I'm suggesting to young people and old people and people in general you can learn how to fight you know, if you don't like fighting then you can go out and get some food you like cooking and go give food to the poor you know? Yeah, so you can feed the poor you mean fighting like martial art? I mean, martial arts like the self defense, right, like martial arts, you know? Yeah. Like like
I know martial arts. I heard you know, martial arts, but I don't I don't know about that. Yeah, we will. I like to see for myself, you know, I like to take you back but I challenge you. Oh, aren't you right now let's go fight. So we can see who's the best right here? Oh, you know, we got a challenge shot and I'm dropping the gauntlet. Your martial arts is no good. You must be ready to die. We're gonna have to take a break and see what corresponds from here. We're gonna have to maybe

tune in every week for the show. with Eddie.
Back here on the D show. So when you think Did you Did you have a good time? Was it fun man, vertical Africa my very time and I'm delighted. I was going easy on you who didn't want to you know, pass you on your own show?
Radhika Luffy chromatic rates on the $100 bill alameen. And as I hope that the people get to see everything on fun that we had and the things they can do and hope people come and learn about Yeah, definitely. You know, we got to work up a sweat. You know, you burn some calories you get in shape. And some of this negative energy frustrations, you know, out there, you get to lit it on a positive way now. Yeah. And you learn how to defend yourself. Mashallah. Yeah, so this is not a fan myself. Yes. So you I mean, you've been doing martial arts for a long time. Now. You're also you know, a black belt. Is that correct? Yes, sir. Yeah. So people can now do Islam. Do God's thing. Call it you
know, submit to the one God and it's not boring. Is it what Islam is a complete, complete, you know, complete religion. And that's the thing, a way of life I should say, you know, it is the religion of Abraham, we express ourselves in our way of life as the deen of Islam, submission, total submission. And the religion only wants to know what do you mean by the religion of Abraham, religion, Abraham has an affair a brightness. So we're upright individuals, staying on set off the Muslim team and practicing our way of life of Islam submitting totally to Allah and allows Muslim tourists that the only reason he came to him so that we can perfect our character. You know, so like I said, I had a
great time to come back anytime you like, I really, you know, I had a great time. We'd love to have you back before we close up just a couple more points. So you mentioned it's not is this true that that's how when you do this submission, is that the only way that you can truly have peace, not because people confused now, you know, a good time, they might have a good time, some fun at the nightclub, when they go home crying, because they got used and abused. Or you know, they spent all their money and they got a hangover, and they still ain't feeling that peace in their heart is peace. Now, by doing this completed here in submission to God's will not your desires, right?
hamdulillah I wish we had time to finish this lamb is submission, the chef on he tricks to people and saying, Do whatever you want, and you will find you'll be fulfilled. People want to get high. Okay, that high that euphoria that they feel through submitting to Allah, but it's not to be found. So they play the music, they dance, everybody looks all happy and everything, but they're really not happy. You know, the guy drinks the beer. And one guy who sued the company in Texas, he said, I drank the beer. It made my breath stink. It made me sick. And I didn't get any girls. Good case, you know, because it's a lie. But this is the same thing. Misha thought he's a great advertiser, but he
never fulfilled on it. The only way you will find true peace in the word Islam does not mean peace. It means submission, surrender, surrender your ego, surrender your right to your own decision to do whatever you want, and do what Allah has decided for you to do. And then through that route of submission, you will find peace and you got the peace right? So it's acquired peace acquired by submission to the One God not your desire. Don't just do it. Don't just do it. Do what Allah wants you to do. And it's not Burger King. Have it your way. No, God's
God's way. Allah Yes. Yeah, yes. Okay. So we covered a lot and we showed that one avenue of having fun you study you want to be the best doctor, the best lawyer whatever it is. And now you you you you study the Quran verbatim what we can have some fun we showed one way get involved in a martial arts learn how to defend yourself. And that's not waste of time is it can be an act of worship. It is an act of worship, you know, the thing with an intention. A normal mundane act becomes an act of worship. Yeah. Okay. So walking if you walk into the masjid because your intention is to go to the masjid. It becomes
Good act, an act of worship. So when you're defending yourself, you're learning you're doing these things, practicing so you can defend yourself and protect your family from harm. This becomes an act of worship, we gave one example and I'm sure there's some other things that we could talk about. We're out of time. Thank you may God Almighty, the creator Allah reward you, thank you. Thank you to someone like Lego salon, Rob cotton, and we started with peace, we end with peace. Remember what we said, when we said, Look, you're not going to get peace by going to the nightclub paycheck to paycheck paycheck, chasing the dollar, chasing the material world, have this world in your hand, not
in your heart. Because when it's time to say bye, bye, when it's in your hand, you can just let it go. But if you've attached yourself and it's deep down in your heart, and that's all you focus on, is cash money, cash, money, club, club, party party, at the end, you're going to lose this world and you're going to lose the hereafter. And you're going to die in a bad state, in a state where your Lord is not pleased with you.
Because you didn't prepare. you chase your losses desires your whole life, and you didn't take life seriously. You didn't truly find out what the purpose of life is, and then you didn't live it. You live according to your desires, and you didn't live according to God's will. It's not submission to the one God and that's how you have peace. That's how you have peace, worshiping the owner of peace and not his creation. We'll see you next time. God willing, until then, peace be unto you.
Seek refuge with
obey you, Lord, submit to Him. Avoid the danger of the major sins. Obey your Lord, repent to him, avoid the danger of the major sins. Obey your Lord, surrender to Him. Avoid the danger with the major sins. Obey your Lord, submit to Him avoid danger major sins.
Mercy on us Oh.
Have mercy older souls. Avoid the footsteps of shady planning scheme in 24. Seven, trickery, deception, false hood lies, anything to keep you in the firing line who tell you you have to pray as if everything depends on a lot and it does. But you must work.
Everything depends on you.
That's my point. You see I'm saying and I don't like that. I don't like us sitting here. What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for right now? What are you waiting for all these people that come to this? What are you waiting for? What are we waiting for right now when they're gonna come? They're gonna come along and bring these people last. Put in our hands the ability to do it now do your job.
I am not afraid to say
I am not afraid to stand alone.
I am not afraid
to stand alone.
I am not afraid.
I am not afraid.
I'm not afraid.
