Salam aleikum as the wonderful greeting of peace, peace br two Thank you for tuning in to another episode of the deen show where we're trying to help you understand Islam and Muslims. And Islam simply means to acquire peace, by submitting your will to the owner of peace, the one God, the Creator of all that exists, the creator of man and woman, the creator of the sun and the moon, the creator of this whole universe.
That's the one God we're talking about. Now, he has sent through all time messengers and they came with that same message worship the creator and not his creation. They came with a comprehensive system on how the human being needs to live his life. But now, there's another part another facet to this patience. It requires some patience to stay away from the evil things that are out there calling you day and night. And how can we acquire this we need some more advice. We need teachers to teach us qualified individuals and what we got one of those qualified individuals here today he's back with us again shake Abraham's a damn right back on the show. He
there's only one
there's only one Jesus was his messenger
Why did that maybe maybe it's just to break the ice. I Salaam Alaikum. Peace be with you. How are you? thankful. Thank you for taking the time to be with us here again on the Dean's show your regular here. It's always a pleasure. May Allah subhanaw taala bless this work. And we lost planet Allah keep was steadfast on his religion that he chose for mankind the gentleman? Amen. I mean,
people can go to the deen, show calm, you have your own private section there has your biography tells the people a little bit about you, who you are, what you're doing, and the previous shows we've done with you. Now, today, because time is short, we get straight into the topic. Today we want to talk about patience. It requires a lot of patience, doing the good staying steadfast, and doing all the wonderful things that the creator's told us to do and the verbatim Word of God the Qur'an.
So we want some advice because sometimes people, male and female, they feel like slipping. It's hard to sometimes get up for that early morning prayer, you got to be patient. Sometimes it's hard, you want to take a sip of some of that stuff, they'll make your mind go loose, you know what I mean? You want to let loose, but you can't you got to refrain. So talk to us about the importance of patience.
Um, the LAO salatu salam ala rasulillah patience, or it's an Arabic called sub sub. And the word sub literally means something that is bitters. That means it doesn't taste good in the beginning, and Lost Planet, Allah, the Most Merciful, or the believers mentioned patience in the Quran for over the 90 times in the 90 times many times in the corner over there, with regards to patience, the rewards of it the order from Allah subhanaw taala, for people to be patient, and the reward for the people in the hereafter and in this life. And with these orders from Allah subhanaw taala. It shows that when the Most High created the human beings, everybody into patients one way or the other, anybody,
Muslims, non Muslims, in our daily life, last panel to Allah created this life in such a way that if we leave your home, for example, without cleaning it for few days, it becomes dirty. You have to have patience to clean it. You have to have patience to earn money, you have to have patience to study. And people would look ahead that he would earn after few years of studying and hard work and things like this. How would a person steadfast and his studying and his learning and so on is my patience, patience, carry that person to reach his goal? This is a fact. And a lot of the Most High, the Most Merciful, made this in the life of the people so don't know that nobody will have an
excuse, saying I can't have patience, you already have patience in many things. And that's why when it comes to matters of the Hereafter, worshipping the Creator of the heavens and the earth alone, obeying the orders of Allah subhanaw taala we have to have the hearts attached to the hereafter described is so so short, and everybody shall depart from it. So to be patient to seek the rewards from the Creator of the heavens and the earth, that a person would receive in the hereafter that needs patience. That's why patience is of three types, as it's mentioned the Quran to be patiently away from sins and the things that are Lost Planet Allah forbid, by the way, the sins in Islam, as
it's mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu
Look, it's all evil things, the Most High, the Most Merciful, the most wise, he did not forbid his creation from something that is a necessity in their life, or something that would bring any goodness to them. It's all the immediate passion or the immediate attachment, that if people would look ahead, and this is the difference between the human beings and others, if they would just look ahead, and they would think and make right decisions, they would see that all these things that are since it's something that is all evil, even if it brings some joy, temporary joy that brings after the misery in this life and in the Hereafter. So to be patient away from sins, because we want to
preserve our even our faith, the faith increases and decreases, increases with good deeds, and decreases with bad deeds. And the sin is not just a sin versus a good deed. It affects the heart. It decreases the Eman it decreases the structure that you built with the good deeds and being obedient to Allah subhanaw taala being in the state of sin decreases all of that. So that's why this is something that would help the believers to be always in state of patience, and many other reasons. Like when a person went to the prophet SAW Selim and he told them give me the permission to commit Zina adultery. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not tell him this is what are you asking for? He
said, Do you like this for your mother? Do you like this for your end? Do you like this for your sister, people would sound nature, they would like these things for their own selves. So then the prophet SAW Selim told them the same way people don't like it for themselves, you should not like it for your own self and for others. So by thinking this way, and this is what we need to call people to do. We need to think many people on the face of Earth now they're not thinking properly. They're just busy with the daily activities and the desires and things of that nature. They don't think to see what is right and what is wrong. I don't think anybody on the face of Earth would say patience
is a bad thing. Everybody will agree patience is a good thing. Yes. But it depends on what are you trying to achieve. So being patient away from sins, being being patient to apply the orders of Allah subhanaw taala. As human beings, we tend to be lazy. We don't like anybody to tell us do this or not to do that. But when we know that this is something that we are nothing but servants of the Creator of the heavens and the earth, we need to humble ourselves to Him, we eat from his provisions, all the favors from Allah is showers us, all around us. That means we need to be shy from him, that we be obedient to Him. And He said that after the slave for those who are obedient, they would enter
the agenda of our last panel that so people need to repeat. Is there a verse in the verbatim Word of God Almighty, Allah, the Quran that Allah is saying, Can you explain is that indeed those without account are the patient those on that day that are without account or the patient? It's a good point, because many verses in the Quran with very words of good deeds, you would find the rewards 10 rewards multiplications of that. But when it came to patience, Allah Subhana Allah said what you said here that the rewards is without a limit in America for sabi Runa Jolla home the lady she said that in the mornings indeed, you are for sabi rune, which means the sabi rune to Swiss patients,
they are given in full the rewards without account without limits, without limits. So if you do one good deed, you get 10 rewards, right? And then it can be multiplied. But here what there is no limit to how much reward you can be from holding back. Like the person says, somebody offends you, you are knocking them off. You say, Oh, no, I shouldn't be do I can't do that as long as and let me to hurt somebody. So you're patient for the Creator. That's correct. And that's why it's a deed done by the heart. There is no such a thing as he's patient, meaning physically patient. Yeah, no, it's something that its roots in the hearts and then it shows its effect. In our outside appearance. Was
there a hottie Is there a hadith where the Prophet peace be upon and he was sitting with Abubakar Siddique and this man came? And can you go ahead and elaborate he was insulting abubaker and the prophet and then the angels, right? Can you go ahead? And was this about patience? Also? Right, and the Prophet salallahu Salam was being revealed to him. Yes, is one of the benefits of the way the revelation from Allah that we get to see the unseen. Yeah. And when the prophets of Salaam was seeing that and would seem that his companion was patiently responding to this person. And then when he got angry, and he wanted to respond in a non permissible way, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told
them from the unseen, that the angels was supporting him. While he wasn't sleeping back while he was in patients. He was practicing it. Yeah. And once he get it into himself as a person and think, then the protection was lifted, he was left to his own self big lesson for us, isn't it? Definitely. And that's why if a human being is left for his own self, he's perished. Yeah, unless we are protected by Allah Subhana Allah and the creation of Allah subhanaw taala we are lost. That's why if I if I go back to the three parts of patience, being patient away from sins, being patient to do what Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to do in the way that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to do it.
The third type is to be patient whenever a calamity hits, we are human beings. And that's why, if I have the time I would like to give you to the viewers, something to make it easy for us. Let's Let's hold off on that. And we're going to come back and we'll talk more on this topic patience. Right back onto the show. I am not afraid.
I am not afraid.
I'm not afraid.
I'm not afraid.
Why don't you become a Muslim? No, I give a very frivolous on should I say I want to be on the side of the angels.
of God. He's the number one rap artists in the world he sold over 60 million records was the millions the million. He was a young guy who had basically everything that somebody you would think that life is all about, he had everything you can imagine.
Back here on the show with Shaykh Ibrahim sedan, please continue where you left off before we went on a break. Anything that happens in our life, there is something before it. And there's something after it. If something happens to us, and something said has to happen in our life, this is the wisdom of the Creator of the heavens and the earth either will die, or someone that is a loved one will die, something bad happens to a person. So we need to prepare ourselves for what's coming ahead. By having always been putting the trust in Allah subhanaw taala. By taking the means the physical means that permissible means why the hearts attached to the Creator of the heavens and the
earth, putting our trust in Him, that everything happened by the full and the perfect wisdom of the most Hi, nothing happens like that without the wisdom. And then if something bad happens to the person, immediately after that he is pleased with the color with the destiny of our last panel that so you have as one of the scholars give it the two things that around the corner along the destiny of Allah, that what code to put our trust in Allah subhanaw taala before it and to be pleased and patient when it comes to after what happened to the person. Why because we are nothing but servants of the Creator of the heavens and the earth. And these are acts of worship. Yeah, we lose it
sometimes. You know, it's a rat race out there in life and things get into hustle and bustle and traffic and this and that. And sometimes it's easier said than done. But when we hear from the last and final messenger sent to mankind the same way, Jesus was a messenger at his time, Moses, Abraham, they were all calling people to the same thing. And they had the ultimate gems of wisdom because it was coming from the desires but from the Creator of the heavens and earth. So when we hear some of these sayings of the Prophet authentic, he's not lullabies, or stories, fables, these are authentic sayings. So can you elaborate another one? Because did the Prophet peace be upon him said the person
also when he reframes from from even when he's right, but he doesn't get into the argument. What does it mean Allah will build him a house in general, right? This is again, it's an act of worship. Yeah. act of worship. That means we have to submit ourselves to Allah Subhana. Allah the Most High when it comes to this act of worship, people reward one another. Yes. If people are nice to me, I'm nice to them. If they're not nice to me, I won't be nice to them. This is not an act of worship. This is basically just rewarding one another. A lot of the Most High ones something else extra from them. If people are nice to you, nice to them. If they're not nice to you still need to be obedient
to Allah subhanho wa Taala with regarding to your affairs with them. And that's why when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam peace be upon him when he said, when people are arguing, and when arguments comes in place, it's not about finding the truth. It's about who would win for his own personal glory. So the prophet SAW Selim said, Whoever leaves argument, while he is on the truth, he presented the truth, the truth is clear. And one characteristic for the truth, that if it stands in front of the falsehood, the falsehood cannot stand in front of it. So we explained the truth, the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim, and the matter is clean, but then the other person
still wants to argue. In that case, the prophet SAW Selim said whoever leaves such argument for homo Heck, which means he is on the right side, he's on the truth. I love the most I would build a house for him in the outskirts of gender. And this is the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala because not every human being can do this. You are on the right side, you're not someone that tries to prove something wrong. You know that you are correct. And you will fail.
This person defeated you, he might think that he defeated you. Maybe your ego also, right? Yeah, definitely. And that's why one person suppress this, for the benefit for the sake of the Creator of the heavens and earth alone. And last panel talent, the Most Merciful, nothing is wasted. And that's why one important statement that we need to understand very well, that whoever leaves anything for the sake of Allah, not for any worldly benefit, for the sake of the Creator of the heavens on earth, He would never feel the loss of it. Never, never, if he's truthfully leaving it for the sake of the Creator of the heavens. So male or female, doesn't matter doesn't matter. It might be something
immediate fields, needs some struggle. And then eventually, after that, he would he or she would feel no loss whatsoever and what they left behind, were all human beings. Yeah, if human being some of them would say I cannot leave this, whatever sin they're doing. other human beings, if you give them even push them to do it, they would rather be killed them to do the same set. Why is that when the temptations are the same? Some people worked on themselves, they thought about it, they made decisions, they turned to the Creator of the heavens in the earth. And it's just a short period of time, and it becomes in the norm, but others are, they surrendered themselves to their desires. And
they chose to live a life like how the animals do. Yeah, so we don't want to live like the animals we want to live, like the most high has told us to live according to His guidance, not our desires. And that is something logical rational. Now let's get to the nitty gritty of some, some real practical examples. You know, that man is attracted to a woman, woman, a man and sometimes it requires a lot of patience, not to do it the wrong way, but to do it the right way. Can you talk to us about this, right? This is also something that is mentioned in the Quran and in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because the last panel to Allah is the Most Merciful. The family
structure in Islam is something very important. It is the right of every human being to be raised in a healthy family. He sees the father and the mother. And there is no chaos in the household with cheating and things like this. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala protected us with the orders of Allah span of time. It's against one's desires, if we leave our desires to be the leading thing to us, either the desires would lead us or the truth would lead us in the desires comes after it. If a lot of the Most High forbidden adultery and what comes before it, this religion is so perfect. If adultery is forbidden, then what leads to it has to be forbidden otherwise, no human being, except
very few, if they are right by the sin. And by the real temptation. Most of the human beings, even if it's a righteous person, would fall into that sin. That's why Yusuf Alayhi Salaam prophet Yusuf Ali said, we have a surah in the Quran, chapter in the Quran about him. Why because he was patient, when he faced the wife of the person in Egypt. She was a beautiful woman, she has status, he was a slave to her, that means he has to obey her, he was a stranger. That means if you do something, nobody would blame him. She was ordering him, she was threatening him that he would be in the prison. If he does not commit this act to her. And he was a single man, he was not married. That
means all the means of falling into the sin was there and she closed the doors and everything like that everything is ready for it. But then when he chose to have the fear of Allah Subhana Allah, and he patiently stayed away from that, we still till today how many people on the face of Earth even now at this second that I'm speaking, reciting surah Yusuf, and his praise has been mentioned, what would happen if he had committed the sin, nobody would have heard about him. But Allah subhanaw taala raised his mentioned, as a result of being patiently for just few minutes, obeying the orders of Allah, patient patient. So that's why the orders of Allah subhanaw taala when it comes to hijab,
lowering the gaze, all of this is to protect ourselves, protect our image, our faith, to protect our children, to protect the family, to protect the society in general. All of that is from the most wise to panel time. That's why when a person is the profits are seldom which is a very good head if we are weak, if a person falls into the sin of looking at something that is not permissible for him to look, the profits are seldom said Go back to your wife and have relations with her because she has what you saw. Because certain beautifies in your eyes what you see. And it's not true exactly what you see is what you see share from the devil is making it more appealing than what it is in
your wife she has what you are seeing and that's why the prophets are Sela practical advice, no shyness and the religion. Do that as a way to expiate your sin and the last panel data the Most Merciful. So this is like an arrow in the heart when a person look at something that is not permissible. So we need to take the means the prophets are seldom said to the young people, if you have the means the physical means to get married, get married. This is the religion of Islam not to stay syllabus without getting married and thinking that that pleases Allah subhanaw taala No, get married, be productive in the society and protect yourself. The prophet SAW Selim said that when the
His relations with his wife, he gets rewards for it. And the companions of the home. They said he would get rewards while he's fulfilling his desire. The profits are seldom said if he would do it in the harem, in a sinful way. Would he get us in? They said, Yes. So he said la salatu salam. So the same way, if you do it in the Helen in the permissible way, you get rewards for it, teller teller shake now, were the youth. And those men, young adults, and they're being patient, they are worshipping the One God alone, establishing the prayer and doing all the good, wholesome things that God Almighty Allah wants them to do. But now, what advice do you give to them in the parents because
they get to an age, and now Okay, they're holding back those desires, you know, sometimes it's very difficult, they want to get married, but the parents say, you know what, you need to finish another six years of medical school, you should be the best doctor, you should be the best scientist you should, as we should be the best to benefit mankind. But now, they are more concerned about their son getting a PhD or MD, but the patients are wearing off because we're natural human beings. What about this situation? Well, it is a sad situation. And you just said that this morning, if the feds, I was talking with a young brother. And he was explaining the same problem, same problem, same
problem, let's hold off right there. That's him, we got to go to break, don't lose your place. We right back with this live example here on the D show.
All of the profits would have been labeled Muslims, because this essential message was the same.
This is God talking to you. How can I stand behind the pulpit on Sunday morning and preach a sermon that I knew was at variance with the actual tap root of Christianity.
Back here on the deen show, and before sorry, we had to cut you off, we had to go to break. But please continue hope you don't lose your place. After the prayer this morning, a young Muslim, and he had the scent the look of the sun on his face, Mashallah. And he was asking me the same question the same problem, that he's young, he's going to college, and all these temptations are there. And he has been practicing Islam not too long ago. And he wants to get married. But the problem is with his parents, telling him that before he finishes college, and so on, and so forth. And this is a sad thing, because we are human beings, if we ask someone to stay away from these temptations, that it's
forbidden to have a girlfriend, it's forbidden to look at someone that is not proper clothed, and so on so forth, then we are basically ordering people to do the impossible. So that's why we need to make it easy for them. And it's a call for the parents, for the Muslim parents have mercy on to your children don't think when they're hiding to you that they are tempted and they want to fall into these types of sins. Everybody would say my son is not that way. My daughter is not that way. They're human beings. What do you mean, they're not that way. You need to help them to protect themselves. And the first thing to protect themselves is not to tell them feel a loss. Of course, we
have to feel a loss of data. But as the prophet SAW, Selim said, Get married. He said this, he said that getting married, if you're not able to get married, then first Did he say get married after you get the PhD? He didn't say that. And that's why when and this is another point that many people might disagree with me, but the pay a parent would say but how he's going to go into support his wife, right? If he's now going to school and he's such a well mannered person and things like this, eventually inshallah philosophy cannot Allah give him life, he will graduate and he will work and you will make money. If he's been helped while he's doing this. If he can support his own self and
eat and drink and have a shelter, another person with him won't cost them anything. Actually, when we look into the means as physical means only we are in loss. There is no difference between us and anybody else. We have the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim teaching us there are other set of means that people do not know except by the revelation from Allah, the means that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran and one of which Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran clearly, he akufo Cora yogena him alone. If they are poor in the context of be made, get the men and women get married to each other. If they are poor, Allah the Most High will make them rich out of
his bounty. So it's mentioned the Quran the same reason why people would hold back on marriage is because they're poor, they don't have enough or the status and the degree and so on. Allah subhanaw taala refuting this call by saying alone make them rich. That's what I've learned in this road. The Companion of the prophet SAW seven said, How can I trust in hearing this verse and doesn't get married to be rich. If you want to be rich, get married. opposite to what people say. This is now a test Allah subhanaw taala is saying to you, if you want to make money if you want to be rich and have a place
Bless your provisions, get married, your provisions will be blessed. Because you're obeying the orders of Allah, especially, you're getting married to protect your religion, not getting married just for the lusts of it, but to protect your religion. So the parents can go ahead and do what the prophet said for them to do and come together in a wholesome way in marriage, because if you don't, and then they can continue school, that's a stop school because you got married. And now those those psychologically physically those desires going to be met. Otherwise, they're going to go to the back door, and a lot of them end up going and doing it anyways, but the wrong way, and discipline has his
ways. When a person commits a sin, the shaitaan will come to him and tell him, you're a bad person, you cannot stand in the solid, you need to stay away totally from the path of Allah subhanaw taala. So for one sin, He would lead them to even sometimes relegate from within Islam. And this is another thing if a person out of weakness fell into a sin. We need not to be dispelled from the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah, we need to return to Allah subhanaw taala with repentance, and a person, if he commits a sin, it doesn't mean that he abandons the Salah, if he goes to the prayers in the masjid, he needs to keep doing that even if he committed a sin, we turn to Allah subhanaw taala with
repentance, never give up, never give up. And it's the responsibility of the communities that they need to support the young adults in their community, putting them together in the same classrooms, in the same environment. And we tell them you need to stay away from each other. How can that happen? This is against the human nature, we need to protect them by getting them married. And for those who are not able to get married, the advice or the profits are
too fast. Because the most important thing is to save your religion. Wait for the for the for the favor from Allah subhanaw taala to come to you we cannot sustain the punishment of Allah Subhana Allah in this life in the US. So we want to strive like you said earlier, we're almost out of time for the hereafter knowing def has come in, as you said, and avoid argumentation. Stay patient that is mentioned over you said 90 times in the Quran and patient not to go towards the boyfriend, girlfriend getting married. And the parents also, as you mentioned, help the children don't oppress the children. Last closing comments and suggestions please our life one of the two acts of worship
that we always in that state is patience and being grateful to Allah Spanner. So we need to practice this patience is to do what Allah subhanaw taala did. This is not a negative x. And it's something that we are positively doing what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us, patiently, and at the same time being grateful to him, that he gave us the life and the health and everything like that. So we need to be patient, to fulfill his orders and to submit ourselves otherwise what submission submission is not just in one thing or the other submission in all of our affairs and everything we say everything we do in any state that we are in, we need to be submitted to the creator the
evidence in here. Thank you very much May Allah the Creator of the heavens and earth reward you once again for being with us here. Well, yeah, thank you very much, Masha Allah, God was it like that, and it is so exciting. I'm telling you, it's exciting. This is a blessing, not only for myself being here benefiting from the knowledge but you also you tuned in and now you got to learn some more about the way of life that brings you peace, Islam, everything is comprehensively it's there. All you got to do is learn it, implement it, live it and keep turning, turning back here to the deen show, every week for a new show. And we'll see you next time God Willing until then peace be unto
He created the universe.
To Him alone the heavens and the earth.
He is the
