00:00:02--> 00:00:13

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam, ala MBI mousseline LBNL Buddhas in Hamden, are they here for the Salah was Qatar slim, Allah, Allah, Allah may in fact one that

00:00:14--> 00:00:23

was in there out of enemy. Sudan Monique, when I'm so lucky with regard to our brothers and sisters, welcome to SEER we're doing to zero so

00:00:25--> 00:00:26


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

the last time that we were here together, we were talking about the little law here, as Magellan won me on dabba to fill out the wallet or a little visa fee, he

00:00:45--> 00:01:04

lost power Tada. He talks about the creatures that he has made and placed in his creation. And one of His Signs is that every single creature experiences community, some type of community, just like human beings have

00:01:05--> 00:01:25

said there's not a creature upon the earth and not a bird that flies in the air on its own two wings, except that it has it has Omen, except that it's organized into groups, and allows for Madonna says groups and local groups just like you are organized into groups.

00:01:26--> 00:01:38

And subhanAllah we find this especially this time of year, and right here, even in Utica, many of the birds that we have here next to the MSG, they are in the process of

00:01:39--> 00:01:51

gathering into Fox in order to migrate somebody somewhere for the winter. And they gather together you see the geese and the sky. Right? fIying in the V. Right. And subhanAllah

00:01:53--> 00:02:09

there's a foul. I heard one the machete said that there's an example of leadership in the geese. That's relevant for Muslims. Because you know how the geese fly. And they fly 1000s of miles. Okay, is the same goose in the front the entire time.

00:02:10--> 00:02:15

Is it. It's not? They take turns. Yeah.

00:02:16--> 00:02:30

Yeah, sorry. One of the keys is the email. He's on the front of the others flying behind me and the others SubhanAllah? Well, I mean a Atilla they're behind the leader. So that

00:02:31--> 00:02:39

it's not as hard for them to fly because they're right behind it. So the one in France is the one who flies into the wind.

00:02:40--> 00:02:45

And the other ones behind the shielded from the wind because of the others in front of them.

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

Right, so the one who's in the front get hammered about the hammer. And Misha, right. He takes on and this is an example of leadership. The one who's the man or the one who's the father of him. That's right.

00:03:01--> 00:03:06

You say it was the epilogue a lot of years where, say the nurse or the mom. Right?

00:03:07--> 00:03:21

Right. You have to be the one on the front. He's the hammer. Yeah, he has, he's flying right into the wind. But what happens when he gets tired? He goes to the back. And somebody else steps up.

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


00:03:24--> 00:03:45

So this is a model of leadership. Right? If there's a Muslim community, we have people Hamdulillah we have people who have skills who have capabilities, okay, if somebody goes down or somebody leaves next person, next person up, next person up the bird Subhanallah and then you Alamo

00:03:46--> 00:04:01

case and suddenly any chance evolution sometime, okay. Right. Some of the things that we see the animals now and the personnel, less OBE Allah, and Allah azza wa jal.

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

And we have abroad, we have those lessons to benefit. Right? You know, you go on to Hamdulillah you go on to different Muslim communities. And you see, everyone has, you know, football and no one has monotonous you know, so some things that are good and some things that are bad. In some communities, you have no email. But everyone's involved.

00:04:30--> 00:04:39

You have different groups and different classes and different organizations and everybody you Shaniqua you are the nurse Oh, you Hello, right. You tries to do as much as they can.

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

And then you have other communities where it's the opposite, right? Maybe one or two people do most of the things. Right? And we have an example, in the in the geese and in the birds, that when somebody's not absent, it's not an excuse to not do anything. You have to put yourself forward

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

If you can, there's a cat cafe. That's like we said, if you go on the study, there's a cat.

00:05:06--> 00:05:11

Right? There's a cafe on the talents that are lost pounds Allah gave you.

00:05:12--> 00:05:33

Maybe you think maybe you need to get enough sex, maybe you think that you only know I only know this little bit. If you haven't even a little bit. Somebody else has nothing. So you're a little bit. Right is amazing to somebody else. That's right. And people who have studied like, Mara can say stuff on on myself know, like, the way elite

00:05:34--> 00:05:39

athletes, right or very, very studied a little bit. We're not

00:05:40--> 00:05:51

We're not scholars of the beam, right? You go over to Missouri or you go to Edina, and you see Earlimart fairland. Right. But

00:05:53--> 00:06:01

this the fitna, right the little bits that we have, we try to mess with Sharla we try to just help the people as much as we can.

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

Although sobre la hottie

00:06:08--> 00:06:26

Exactly. Communicate from me, even if it's an and so every single one of us has an obligation, and we have a responsibility. You have a role to play. Right? Even if you don't have a title. You don't have anything else. You have something that you can benefit the people by.

00:06:27--> 00:06:34

So they're an example for us now for Lattanzi. Kitabi. In shape. What's the kita al Kitab?

00:06:35--> 00:06:35


00:06:37--> 00:06:38

math Ratan affilate. keytab. You can shake

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

a love for my food however.

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

I love the look for any union show which other nests? Yeah, right.

00:06:50--> 00:07:05

That's right, right. Because some there's a group of people who say, Well, we're only going to follow the Quran, we're not going to follow the Hadith. And yesterday, we have had I say navaratna photography shape. So we have everything and

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

we don't need the same

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

other map or setup of famine that these

00:07:15--> 00:07:35

kids have here is a lawful my fault. Right? in which everything is written. Everything that's going to happen a lot as well Joe commanded the pen, right? And he said it's going to write every single thing that happened from the beginning of time to the end of time. Allah azza wa jal now thought and it had kids happy to write

00:07:40--> 00:07:49

some killer op him your shadow, and at the end, every single one of us is going to be returned to Allah as a job. And we ask Allah to give us success on that day.

00:07:53--> 00:08:02

And alas, paradata he says, Valentina kept there will be a attina some are Bookman, digital nomads, those who can't double

00:08:03--> 00:08:22

right and this is on the was an Allah knew that it would have been right as there was something more than the Boo Boo ba attina Some they are Deaf or book non blind filled automat automatic Gemma. Right. So

00:08:23--> 00:08:39

and one of the is the same sorts of battery cells. He takes them from the automatic either no modular Matt jammer, or normal from play until he die. Why? Right, like and a wall that

00:08:41--> 00:08:52

sort of people I'll get the right the ways of going astray or multiple, and the shaytaan doesn't care. And I am a shaper. In the club a billion. Meanwhile, I saw

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

its waterfront,

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

a handshake.

00:08:58--> 00:09:12

That's right, as long as you don't actually stop, right, it doesn't care. You have some people, the shaytaan he uses their zeal against them. Right. And you see that sometimes with people who accept Islam in the beginning,

00:09:13--> 00:09:48

they have so much passion for the truth. They were in darkness and now they have light but it's as if the light blinds and they become the sharp edge. Right? They become extreme in some things. They go around and they act like they're massive at that dunya right. They're just telling everyone do this do this. And they don't know the basics. Right? Let's see autonomous pulled this person down in one particular direction. And then you have the opposite extreme. Right? You have people who, Sir Who, right like they have to too much.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

For permissibility are too much permissiveness. They take things too easy. Oh, it's okay. Now we have Halloween right Halloween just happened. Right? You know, you see the kids coming around well

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

The kids just came to me today. He said and mashallah Ali, he said I need to explain to my younger brothers why Halloween is haram

00:10:09--> 00:10:34

good mashallah says because he's older, I said mashallah, it's a good good thing that you're trying to do here. I said, Well, Halloween is a holiday, right? He said, Yeah. Okay, I said, What's a holiday holiday is a holy day. Okay, you've got this young goddess who has the ability to make a day holy you me?

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

Or Allah?

00:10:37--> 00:10:44

Right? Who is the only one who can give us information either mean email like a EULA? Yeah, any more about

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

occasion or sad occasion Allah

00:10:51--> 00:11:05

and the Hadith of the prophesy, Sammy said that you have replaced the aids that you're used to now with reading, right, the two aids are those that are unable to help and we don't have any need for any other sort of aid after that.

00:11:07--> 00:11:20

May or may yessuh Illa or your little one may Allah Allah zero the Mr. Clean, get the chakra some of the people they have doubts about this I and others similar eyes.

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

They say how does Allah subhana wa Tada

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

hold us accountable for going astray

00:11:29--> 00:11:33

if he's the one who willed us to go to stray

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

right? Everybody understand? Yes sir. Allah.

00:11:38--> 00:11:43

Allah Subhana Allah in fact KFA alumina when I know

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

nobody, right? How are we to blame if we're the ones who

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

were just this is just the will of Allah's parents on

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

how they respond and how the summer

00:12:01--> 00:12:01


00:12:03--> 00:12:09

Gave her a gift. Hello, Dolly sucks diable animal Aloha Tara Anthony.

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

At for

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

assessment in

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

May, so we will learn

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

a lot faster.

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

Okay, so who are you Norman?

00:12:29--> 00:12:30

checks up on this television

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

series that one's reminding us for so long on public

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

bus had touched him. And that's

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

pretty much Marcelo

00:12:45--> 00:13:28

saxophones reminding us of the story of Alma, where when he was the Khalifa, somebody stole it burglarized the house. And so they were apprehended him, they put him to trial. And they found he was guilty. And they were about to institute the hands. They were about to put the punishment on him or moving and sand. And he said, How are you going to blame me for something that I lost the other. But he already determined that I would do this. And they said, Well, you know, last time to add a decree that you would steal. And he also decreed that we're going to move your head, your hands. So that's exactly what it says. So foreigners money as part of wealthy that we cannot use the will of

00:13:28--> 00:13:56

Allah's power to order to escape, or to excuse our own behavior and choice. Right at the end of the day. I had that name today. Now another day, I lost power. The other showed us the two ways he demonstrated to us, we could go this way. And we can go that way. And Allah subhanaw taala knows everything. That's always that's already going to happen. But do you know it? Do I know it? Of course we don't know. So all we see is we see a choice.

00:13:57--> 00:14:25

That's right, and it's free. And Allah subhanaw taala gives us these choices in order to manifest what's really in our hearts. Right? If we want to do the right thing. Most of the time, we're going to choose the right way. We're going to make mistakes, but most of the time we're going to choose the right way. And if in our heart, we have the faculty of prefer we have these sorts of diseases, then we're going to usually choose the wrong way. Hello, I'm gonna start you had a question of

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

excellent, Mashallah. And subhanAllah. Middle Aged, you will never find people applying this logic consistently. Right? Because when it comes to their man, right, they act as if they have FDF. All right. They're not going to sit at home and complain and say where's my money? Right, but when it comes to the dean, now when it comes to the asset, when it comes to EMA and suburb and all these sorts of things, then it's like, well, I didn't really

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

have a choice. I couldn't really do anything. So I lazos has better live in a capital V tech, lead, and other human capital you can be born right there deep down. They know. They know. Because if they really believed it, they would apply it and every single sphere of their life, they would apply it with their job, they would apply it with the dean, they would apply with marriage. Right? Everybody knows to go take the ASVAB when it comes to marriage, and when it comes to money, all of a sudden, when it comes to the dean, they're ready to complain and blame, I lost power talk.

00:15:34--> 00:16:18

So that's one of the other key wills and everything. He decreed everything. And yet he guided and has a wish there's a difference between the wish of Allah subhanaw taala. And his will, right? What does he want to have happen? He wants everyone to be guided. However, he's not going to force it on anybody. He's going to give every single opportunity and give the mechanisms of gifts and talents like he said, but then he's going to leave it up to us. Why? Because if he forced us to do it, would it mean anything? In another manner with me? Yes. And if Allah subhanaw taala, can he attribute on that? AnnaLena Bucha. Right, like in sort of our off, it wouldn't mean anything, just like a man at

00:16:18--> 00:16:35

the moment have a lot of right or when it's too late. You see the shrimps, the sun rising from the West, it's too late. Man, we laugh, we laugh payment doesn't have any meaning at that point, because it's not something that was chosen with free choice.

00:16:36--> 00:17:10

Well may have said, Yeah, John, who is it all teams talking. So there's a relationship between what's in our heart and how Allah subhanaw taala. For certain, yes, directs and facilitates for us. For the person who has a Nia, Saudi Ha, he has a an intention that is good. Allah subhanaw taala. Suddenly, acetyl Gu, they'll use raw, right? Allah Sparta is going to make easy his way to goodness. And for somebody who has this problem in their heart of Kibito, or whatever it is, then Allah Subhana Allah is going to make easy his way to sort of

00:17:12--> 00:17:54

tell us about ourselves. Paul writes a column in our level law he sets Comosa to Elvira Allah, He to their own or even going from Saudi, just like we're saying how the people of color and people have shipped, they do not apply those sorts of things that they believe in consistently. Allah subhanaw taala also demands consistency from us right here. He says, basically, when times are tough, when your back is up against the wall, when things are happening in your life. Who do you call to? Right? You have all of these gods, you have all these superstitions you have all of these holidays, Halloween, and Christmas and everything else, right?

00:17:56--> 00:18:34

When you're in a plane, or you're in a car, and all of a sudden, here comes to accident, the engine shuts off, something explodes. Who are you going to call? You're going to call even atheists. They say oh my god, right? Even atheist says, Oh my God, that's the federal we have something deep inside of us that really knows that the only one that can save us and the only one that can help us or remove harm from us, is Allah subhanaw taala. And so if the salah came, then we know that he's the only one that would save us.

00:18:37--> 00:19:20

Melia hotel, Allah says, No, really, you would Yeah, that's exactly what you would do. But yeah, hotel the owner, but you actually format to the owner, la Shah, what time some of the managers recall. At that time, you would forget everything. Everything else that you called upon that you reached out to back then it was the idols of stone and wood now it's the things like zodiacs and manifesting all of these things that people believe in now, astrology, it would vanish, you would not come to it or think of it at all. And it would be exposed. Right? I lost that he actually if he's going to expose to you the falsehood of the thing that you used to rely upon and call out to

00:19:21--> 00:19:59

that Eliza just says Well, I thought I was selling that healer, omen and melancholic. But as of now on bill, but say what not right now I love him yet adore our own. Allah subhanaw taala He gives us a history lesson here. What's the Sunnah of Allah azza wa jal and there's many different aspects of this First, there's the Sunnah of how he sends messengers. And second, he's it's the Sunnah of how he sends hardship and what's the purpose of hardship, which is something that a lot of people they struggle with, when the lost power to Allah wills for you that you're going to be struggling financially or that you lose your house.

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

or that you lose your spouse or that you lose a child. Right? So Pamela, I was talking with my sister late last night on the phone.

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

She's a similar ages me, roommate that she had in college just died this week. And I was finally her parents have to bury her. So something that if ALLAH SubhanA, Allah willed, it's going to happen. Right? And so

00:20:25--> 00:21:10

why does Allah subhanaw taala other, let those things happen? Why does he will hardship, whether it's on an individual level or a collective level, many of us come from Sudan, Yemen, from different places across the world. Allah subhanaw taala allowed hardship to come to these places. Why did he do it? What's the wisdom behind it? Is he just angry at us? Right? Is there an opportunity there? Is that something that we did is something we have to understand how this works? So Allah Spano, Tala, he says, first of all, well after the other seminar either one topic but I've heard nothing. So first of all, we sent messengers to the groups of people that came before you, and they will reject.

00:21:11--> 00:21:36

Okay. So this is one way and we mentioned this before that Allah azza wa jal, he console's the prophets of Allah, Allah He was, he makes him feel better, because from the Prophets sincerity alayhi salatu salam was that he felt bad that his people did not get guided, they did not accept the truth. And so the way that Allah azza wa jal makes him feel better is to say it's not just you,

00:21:37--> 00:21:54

and happen to every other prophet before you. They came, and they were rejected. What sort of chain reaction was released after their prophets were rejected? He says, The US had never been built, but certainly what? Allah Allahu

00:21:55--> 00:22:19

Allah, how many tallied? Why did Allah subhanaw taala give them that say, what the raw? Why did he give them hardship, whether that's financial hardship, or warfare, anything that I left home, and did our own, so that they would MC saw so that they weren't already locked up, so that they would return to the truth? Right? These things are reminders.

00:22:20--> 00:23:16

Because the eyewitness the normal situation, is that when life is easy, you get lazy. Right? They have the status of making the rounds on social media that says, what was it hard times produce good men and good men produce good times? And good times, produce weak men and weak men produce hard times that you should that Yeah, that's right. Yeah. It's there's it's pretty true. Right? And so Allah subhanaw taala gives the hardship that the raw sat, right that he gives it so that you can get back so that you can get back and this is something that Allah subhanaw taala used, particularly with Ben Israel, you remember Bani Israel eagles and Mr. Wright and Musala. He said, lead them out

00:23:16--> 00:23:16

of Egypt.

00:23:17--> 00:23:22

And they went through the desert, they got some sort of stain. And what was their attitude?

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

Was it

00:23:26--> 00:23:35

Yes, so they weren't they were go for a nap. Right? Because they were completely ungrateful. And Allah subhanaw taala showed them about

00:23:37--> 00:23:51

it in Egypt, after Egypt, everything you go forward, sort of Bacara pages and pages and pages of NASA felida All this stuff. And then they finally get to a little steam. And they say,

00:23:52--> 00:24:00

and a lot of Booker said hi, it happens a lot because panela varied, right? Oh,

00:24:01--> 00:24:10

look at look at the cover of them. Right? As if they have nothing to be thankful for. Okay, so what does Allah azza wa jal do?

00:24:12--> 00:24:13

What does the law say?

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

The T.

00:24:17--> 00:24:17


00:24:18--> 00:25:00

what's the heck behind sending them into the desert? I take your shirt do you call we write all of the old generation, but matter, right, all of the old generation dies out. The new generation the Shabaab, the young guys that are raised up in the T, they're raised up in the desert. And then when they go back to Philistine and they're told to fight, they fight. And they're brave. Allah subhanaw taala gave them the bitter medicine. Right? The desert, the hardship, exactly, because it was what they needed. Right. And some of the some of the math said they've taken from the story, they say and this is applicable

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

to us in America, they said, look at

00:25:03--> 00:25:07

the attach the consequences of slavery.

00:25:08--> 00:25:51

Right? We're not talking about breakfast. We're talking about other types of slavery, like what we have here in America or what used to exist in America. Look at the mental trauma that Bennigan's thought you had been through. They come out of Egypt. And they can't function. They're not full adults. They're not brave. They're cowardly. They're cowardly. They're gymnasts. They have this bullet you have all these sorts of things. Right? Because this is how the Obama fit our own. Meet them. Right. There was also there were to blame me too. But look at the long what it did to that. And so you see, sometimes you see in America you see the effects of slavery on the

00:25:52--> 00:26:23

right, you see how sometimes African Americans they have certain struggles. People come from Africa, right from Sudan. Totally different and they come in their armies like Why Why does this big difference like like you know, we're from Africa you guys are from Africa buried and shut the *? Right look at how slavery did something to them. Right? Broke the mentality of broke their spirit that all these things panela it's not easy. It's not easy to

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

make them whole again.

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

So Allah Subhana Allah allows but certain para la let them get around so that they would come back. Okay. But Lola either job or home. Batswana Todaro, wala can pass at Punahou.

00:26:42--> 00:27:00

If so, if Allah azza wa jal allows your hearts to become hard. It doesn't matter how clear the evidence is in front of you, you're not going to benefit at all. Right? Let's say, Allah says it's not the hearts. See me? It's not the eyes.

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

But it's the hearts that are blind.

00:27:06--> 00:27:42

Yes, exactly. Exactly. We act as this is just met the right you give someone evidence, and then they're going to see now let's point out to you that the right, he puts a veil over their eyes, the identical mokara and puts a veil over their hearts to the point where it doesn't matter how well it takes him to clearly. right even if you show them every single sign that you'll learn, you'll be so mean with the meaning of they would never leave because it's about the heart. So we ask Allah from protection from

00:27:44--> 00:27:46

from not being able to use our faculties that he gave us.

00:27:48--> 00:27:51

So once their hearts are hardened, plus Ecologo home.

00:27:52--> 00:27:58

That's the first part. That's their issue. They allow their hearts to become hard. Was a

00:28:00--> 00:28:02

shaytaan Omar, can we Yeah.

00:28:04--> 00:28:15

We say this all the time. How does the shaytaan work? How does the shaytaan get people to do evil? Right? Does he just tell someone you woke up in the morning says Alright, today you're gonna kill somebody.

00:28:17--> 00:28:54

Right? There's no way he's not going to convince anybody. Or he's off and the key is very subtle, right? He's going to use a that's the main tactic that the shaytaan uses. He beautifies it for you. Yes, that's right. Tenzin is going to say hey, wouldn't it be nice if you have this sort of thing? justifications? He doesn't deserve that. Why does he have it? You should have that too. Right? They get to have their fun you should get that all the stuff you're talking in your head you're talking in your head and all of a sudden then it starts to make sense

00:28:56--> 00:29:22

that's the outside so we have the inside and the outside right about then is what's going on in New York. Because all of that was Wes wouldn't do anything if there wasn't a part of your heart yeah Bo il was worse right he what you want it to be true. Ready to be convinced. And then you have the external influence, which is the shaytaan giving us every reason and every justification that we could find.

00:29:24--> 00:29:31

Kalam and so mad Okay, we will be attacked now lay him have a web of totally shade.

00:29:32--> 00:29:45

From the Sunnah of Allah. How does he punish the people? Okay, we said that he sent messengers, okay, but their hearts were sealed. They let their hearts go, okay. They rejected the messengers. Then we gave them all sorts of hardship.

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

Okay, then their hearts became hard.

00:29:50--> 00:29:57

Then the shaytaan a beautified for them all of the evil things that they were doing. Then what happens? A lot opens the dunya

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


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

Have Done yet to get everything they want.

00:30:03--> 00:30:11

You want the money? You want the cars you want the women, you want whatever you want. All of a sudden it starts throwing itself that you

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

what situation is your heart in at this point? You can't and

00:30:18--> 00:30:21

there's no way you don't stand a chance. You don't stand a chance.

00:30:23--> 00:30:27

You don't even think about. Exactly. So this is complete offline. You're gone.

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

Hot. Either fetish will be Bhima. Otto, and there's happy look at this way at a festival. Female. All right, everything they're given, what do we say? You know, you're in America. Right? And we're saying that they couldn't come on.

00:30:47--> 00:30:53

And say I'm a father to daughter Mica. You have a role? Yeah, tuber and Enrique Pena show Arabella.

00:30:55--> 00:31:06

Right. They think that everything in America is just natural. From gold. Right. And people in the United States even Yes, we have that. Right. They think that.

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

Brother, can you turn on these lights to please? Thank you very much.

00:31:12--> 00:31:30

Very holy mountains. Right. They think that they're doing okay. Yes. The dill bill? Um, well, I'll tell you that. Right there. They assume that their success in the material world is an indication that Allah approves of what they're doing.

00:31:32--> 00:31:43

How could we be wrong? If we were wrong? Would we be the most powerful country in the world? Would we be the richest country in the world? The biggest economy in the world?

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

How can we be doing anything wrong?

00:31:48--> 00:31:52

That's not the way it works. Either. 30 Kobe gutu

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

have now but

00:31:55--> 00:31:58

then Allah Subhana Allah takes people barked at him.

00:32:00--> 00:32:27

Suddenly, surprisingly, without warning, alarm star, but either Mobley soon. And they're left wondering how this could possibly happen. Right? Everything single civilization is like this. Every single single civilization, it rises, it falls. And then the historians come later and say, Oh, it was inevitable look at this and look at that. But the people at the time they never saw I never saw with them like

00:32:33--> 00:32:38

you know, we drop Nashi. I mean, Derek, we saw a little bit of this with COVID. Little bit of this.

00:32:39--> 00:32:48

Yeah. Are you crying or anything? Right, like some little thing, some little thing. And then all of a sudden, everything changes. Everything changes?

00:32:50--> 00:32:54

Of course, they will come in at the bottom, but I can't do it.

00:32:56--> 00:33:05

Allah subhanaw taala is just and he loves justice, even if that justice is not on our timeline.

00:33:06--> 00:33:12

We missed that. Right? We're hasty. We want justice. Yesterday.

00:33:15--> 00:33:41

Right or your justice yesterday? That's right. I was found that Allah has this plan. Right? And that he taught here, right? He demonstrates people's faults. And this is why you know some people they asked me, well, if Allah subhanaw taala knows you're going to be in heaven, and you're going to be in hell unless people are bad on these people. Why go through all this trouble? Of the dunya in the first place? Lima, Filipina.

00:33:42--> 00:33:49

Oulun. Why did we create us in the first place? How about us and then taking the hammer? Jannetty Jana will not have us.

00:33:51--> 00:33:58

And why? Why? Why would he go through all this trouble? How to use your VA hero? I'd say about him.

00:33:59--> 00:34:11

That's right. If Yeah, well, that. That's just if he had not done that people would have come to the day of judgment and said, Yeah, this is done. How could you put me here you don't know what I would have done.

00:34:12--> 00:34:32

So last month, Allah gives us this wife. He gives us, Estonia to demonstrate what he already knows how to and he already knows. But he gives us this fitna. And that if they bought an empty ham, just to demonstrate to bring out what's already in our hearts.

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

That's right. And that's I mean it. Right spell out why that is some people they go down the same road. Why did Allah create all this in the first place? It seems like this cruel game. You're going to put people here in this cone and this creation, they're going to have all these temptations, all this evil, all this hardship and poverty and war and all these things that we know. Why would Allah do this? Right

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

To have somebody who has the choice between right and wrong with all of these shadow works, and all of these trials on the outside and still yet fantasizing at the adult Allah as a sign. So there is no possible way that people would still choose good and that good would still exist unless there was a good creator behind all. So the good that exists in our world is proof of loss power to Allah if there was no creator and everything should have been completely evil by now. Right?

00:35:40--> 00:36:01

But Allah subhanaw taala will achieve justice whether it's on our time or his of will do debit or told me that the bottom will hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen Allah Spano Tata praises himself for ending Katya there it says, a completely cut off the people who are oppressed because Allah does not love oppression.

00:36:02--> 00:36:14

And hamdulillah one of my favorite as a friend from Epic Italia, he said that what Allah says, some people, like we said, there's always a fraud and a threat, right? Some people

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

they say, oh, Islam, you guys are so violent.

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

You believe and you know,

00:36:22--> 00:36:43

let's say that I put it this way. non violence. pacifism is very popular among some people in the United States. It's very easy to be a pacifist if you're, if your country has all the bombs and all the guns. Very easy to be pacifist, right? Yeah. So I say when I believe in fighting, I don't believe in fighting I like Gandhi and

00:36:44--> 00:36:48

MLK Jr. No fighting no violence, no nothing. Right so far.

00:36:51--> 00:37:19

But as final I forgot, I forgot to connect. So I was going to make because it just made me laugh. But I lost power to Ireland. He loves justice. He loves justice and justice must be done. Right? And to act as if yes, this is it. Thank you for Manasa is some people say and Christians say this a lot. Because Christians have gotten behind this idea that Allah is just love. Right had a balloon Hola. Hola.

00:37:20--> 00:37:21


00:37:22--> 00:37:36

mentioned what Sheikh Abdullah Zach brothers said about that a minute and show off your mind. But they say for example, it's all coded farofa. Right? And Allah will forgive everybody, no matter what.

00:37:38--> 00:37:39

You say, Abraham?

00:37:40--> 00:37:41

What? off my limit?

00:37:42--> 00:37:43


00:37:44--> 00:37:54

Are you saying that you are more merciful than a lost parent that write it down is taken to task class America today.

00:37:56--> 00:38:13

Right, the heavens and the earth Do not cry over them. You're going to cry over them. You're going to cry or down. You're going to act as if this is some sort of virtue, who are you being merciful towards there comes a point when mercy towards the oppressor as though

00:38:15--> 00:38:23

sometimes mercy towards the oppressor is the one. Right. Boehner ferrata freet I was paradata calls to justice.

00:38:25--> 00:38:34

So one of my one of my classmates, one of my classmates asked to set up a reserve to better about this statement that they make they say Allah

00:38:35--> 00:38:38

is the Christians here say that? God is love.

00:38:39--> 00:38:55

Yeah, so this is not just in America but Christians the world over they say they'd say this thing that God is love. Right. And so some of us we asked this a couple years ago whether Deena like how do you respond to this thing done as well as say, and he said

00:38:56--> 00:38:58

that Allah and hope suffer

00:38:59--> 00:39:09

or have suffered as well as a co nice yeah, I'll suffer. Right was suffer layer clockmaker shape

00:39:11--> 00:39:19

right. Magellan layer poor problem makin shaken. Right. So there, it's convenient.

00:39:20--> 00:39:42

It's convenient, because within Christianity if we say that God is love, question must loop mother NFR mother, Nakata, Mina, right? What should we, what are we supposed to do? There is nothing that is directing us towards any sort of actions. We don't have obligations. We don't have anything to do, right?

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

There is no consequences. Very good. There's no accountability. Right? All I have to do is say that I believe I accept Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. And then I'm in. That's right, no matter what I do. So it's a problem. You know, just

00:40:00--> 00:40:28

imagining, No, Allah has loved and Allah loves. But Allah is also more than well, who should eat? Right? Allah is Severe and punish, or who are sorry, he said, he is someone who was quick to take account. Right? And so if you look at the, the sufferer Tina, right, all of the attributes or characteristics of last minute data, they achieve balance that allows them to interact with each other, all these sorts of things.

00:40:30--> 00:40:36

And sometimes they're in it's Jonnie sounds Dulwich, right. It's all mixed together.

00:40:38--> 00:40:58

That's right. Yeah. Oh, many I have many classmates in Medina, from Bosnia. Brother just from Bosnia just came in, you know, and they said to me, you know, yeah, the war was was horrible. It was terrible. So many bad things happen. But one of the good things that happened is that after the war, we started to take a stamp seriously?

00:40:59--> 00:41:04

Or is that before the war? You know, communism, these sorts of things. They didn't.

00:41:05--> 00:41:09

Yeah, yeah. Some people abandoned it somehow I forgot.

00:41:10--> 00:41:18

You know, like, so no one knows best. But sometimes something is a blessing for somebody and it's a trial for somebody else.

00:41:20--> 00:41:23

So Allah azza wa jal says, After that,

00:41:24--> 00:41:32

our item in Africa Allah Who sent Morocco Masada, Mahatma Allah will become many land on obaidul LAHIA T Combi.

00:41:33--> 00:42:17

We depend upon the last point Allah even for guidance is coming back to this idea of just because you have arms, just because you have ears just because you have a heart, it doesn't mean that you're going to be able to see everything here everything, understand everything. If Allah subhanaw taala wants you to stop understanding, it will happen. And this is a big test that we have, especially in the West, where we're told so much. It's about us, right? Like this is it's like the statement of a bottom. This is because of me. Why do I have the success? My knowledge, how are we going to be right? This is this is because of me. I got the test scores. I studied hard. I'm the one who passed

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

the exams. I did, I did it.

00:42:20--> 00:42:22

Right. And it was time to audit, it's telling us the opposite.

00:42:24--> 00:42:50

If he wants you to forget, then he will make you forget. I had a professor for sort of UK and he told me the story was it was about him and classmate of his when they were in school in Santa Maria. They were always nathless Way to SAP. Right. They were always competing with each other. They were rivals, when there was before they were friendly rivals to try to push each other.

00:42:51--> 00:43:23

And so he said, You know, one time, so when they got their exams back, they will always look what you get. I did better than you. Right. Right. And so he said one time, his friend, he got his exam back and he saw that he left an answer blank. Okay. And he said this had never happened before in his life. He said, Wait a second. This isn't right. You've never ever ever left a question blank. Even if you didn't know you would write something. So he asked me said what happened?

00:43:24--> 00:43:42

And he said, You know, when I was taking my exam, I forgot the answer for a moment. I was thinking and my pen fell off my desk. Okay, I reached over to grab the pen. And I saw Novato Isla de

00:43:43--> 00:43:44


00:43:45--> 00:44:03

loci in a Isla Billa. And right, he said, I accidentally looked at the paper my name. I saw Kelly Mawashi that I saw one word was Joanne. Jenny. Right and the entire answer came back to me.

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

Well, if to mean Allah.

00:44:08--> 00:44:13

And he said and I feared Allah that I would echo that response that it will be your title. Yes, polish

00:44:14--> 00:44:15

for Turaco

00:44:16--> 00:44:17


00:44:18--> 00:44:23

so far. Yeah. He was afraid that if he wrote that answer that it will be cheating.

00:44:24--> 00:44:27

And so he said, I feared a lot. I love the question blank.

00:44:29--> 00:44:37

This is someone who understands that what we have up here, what we have here, all we have here is from the last time that he can turn it on, he can turn it off.

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

He can lead it to tell feedback. He can lead it to success, or he can lead it to fashion to failure and complete opposite. Definitely Morocco. Right? People who are ignorant and don't even know that they're ignorant. Right? So we rely upon Allah subhanaw taala to open our eyes and our ears and our hearts and our minds and

00:45:00--> 00:45:29

So, you know, our professor he said, you know, obviously, he lost points on that exam. But did he lose anything? In the athletic? No, of course he will he finished the Jowers Yeah, exactly the baccalaureate madness that what a total and what your data suggests. So if somebody's not making shape well Xad it tofi Savannah so we asked the last bounce out of the album Celine and that we meet him where the hustle hot

00:45:31--> 00:45:33

where we got your time, the time for the

00:45:34--> 00:45:35

study of that

00:45:36--> 00:45:37

one minute

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

okay, so we asked last time to other for,

00:45:44--> 00:46:06

for facility law, and for selfies, and that he causes us to use our hearts and our minds and all of our faculties for what pleases Him. And we asked her last time Politicker give us a sample Subhanallah homie or hamburger Shawanda stalker want to be like fotografico la Nomicon Sharla
