I would like to begin by reading the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim Malema scaliness, la escuela or whosoever does not thank people. In effect, he does not thank Allah subhanho wa Taala so I'd like to thank my mentor, my teacher, Chef, Rossini, may Allah subhanaw taala bless this man. And if Allah Subhana Allah and he given me the opportunity to live in Malaysia, that would be my place. Because this is where discipline in Serbia
is to be found in this country. You guys are very fortunate. And may Allah Subhana Allah bless the life of this man to give and to serve this part of the world. I mean, and you know, I cannot be Malaysia without speaking a bit about Jeffersonian if you don't mind just go off topic a bit, if you don't mind.
I found I found the handler he's not in the audience, right? Is he? Is he then okay? otherwise would be embarrassing, right?
When I when I, when I made that transition from music into Islam, Allah Subhana, Allah Yanni guided me to certain shapes, certain mentors, certain people online that they used to listen to. And Jeff was saying he was one of the of those people and I could never fathom could never imagined that one day I would be coming in his center and addressing addressing his community. So this is an it feels a bit difficult for me to do. And but I wanted to say something that happened a couple of years back, that makes me makes me feel speak next to share Hosseini very comfortably than anyone else. And it's fun a lot. I have this policy normally in, in my lectures in my seminars, that I don't want
to speak next to any speaker. I don't want any speaker to be in the audience because I'm still a student of knowledge. And these scholars Dr. Mohamed Salah, Shahar Seville Hakeem, Mufti, Ismail, mink and so on. When I, before Dr. Bilal Philips when I sit next to them, I feel like I should be in the audience listening and learning what Jake was saying, You must realize that kind of a scholar who push you to speak, it gives you that opportunity to speak and to share your what you have learned. And this is something I admired him a lot and that makes me feel very comfortable. May Allah bless that man, I mean, Blimey. Okay.
Back to the topic, which was announced as complete your dean, and it was truly it was misunderstood by so many people that I'm coming to talk to you about marriage? Well, you're going to be disappointed, because he did not study the heartbeat. That's a complete out of your dean, we're going to talk about completing the dean. And what do I mean by that? I was sitting with one of my mentors, one of my shades so you know, in the early stages was teaching me
and he said to me that Islam was established upon five pillars, right. We know this had the one of the early had it in any books of narrations. booney, al Islam, Allah humps, Islam was built in the literal translation is Islam was built upon five pillars. Now the question is, if I wanted to ask you,
if I were to ask you that we purchase a house, but this house is only on pillars, will you be able to live in that house?
Will you be able to live in that house which only consists of pillars, we need to put some walls, some ceilings, bring in some decorations and so on and so forth. furnitures only then the place will be suitable for living. So when we say Islam was established upon five pillars, and we know what are these five pillars, the shadow salaah the song this again, the Hajj, we know these pillars, but these are the foundations of Islam, but not the complete house. And this is what many of the Muslims have misunderstood. So the Muslims thought that if I just stick to the five pillars that says that's it, that's sufficient. Yes, there is one Hadith where a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam and he told him suppose we all pray my five daily prayers, I will fast I will perform hajj and so on and so forth. Will I be in Jannah? The prophet SAW Selim said yes. If you're truthful, or after he left, he said to the people, if he's truthful, he would be in general. Yes. But the question here is this only Islam
are the five pillars that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us are the the only part of the slam or we have become a bit selected.
So my topic today is addressing the remaining the building when I was talking with
My sheer my mentor who brought to me this idea. He told me once you once your foundations are strong once your pillars are very strong, then build upon that start building. Where is your relationship with your non Muslim neighbors? Where is your relationship with your parents? Where is your relationship with your friends? Where is your relationship with, you know, indeed in business dealing? Where is where is all of that all of that is Islam. In fact, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam, they considered every step they take is part of Islam.
every step, every action,
it is part of Islam, and came to mind the story of workers of the karate aloha nwaba when there was a boy offering him food. Every day he will purchase food for him, and Ababa Casa de la hora, he will ask him about the source of that food. And the boy will explain to him that this is the source and once abubakr. Silvia verifies that the source is halal he will eat.
And one day he forgot to ask the boy about the source of the food. And he ate one morsel my brothers and sisters, one morsel only. And after that he remembers when he asked the boy from where you got the soul the money to buy the food. And he discovered that the source was unlawful was Haram. And all of a sudden our workers declared the last one what was stood up and he dipped his finger into his throat and he vomited that morsel, that little morsel. Although even if he aged, unknowingly that the source was Haram, it would have not been a problem, because he didn't know.
But he cared too much. And when the companions complained, they say why did you do that to yourself? You say the Billy or the stomach of Abu Bakr will never taste something wrong. This is how the companions lived their lives that every step they have taken. It was part of Islam. Unfortunately, nowadays, we have made this separation. We have made a separate when I'm at work, this is not Islam. So I could use Facebook no problem.
If I ask you by a show of hands, how many people view Facebook, Twitter, YouTube videos, during working hours? There'll be some embarrassment. There'll be some embarrassment and some people laughing already I know you already
Yeah. And and the people will not even ask, is it halal or haram? It becomes the norm.
It becomes the norm haraam becomes the norm. Unfortunately,
I was shocked yesterday, when someone approached me system. And she asked me
Is there really harm? Why it is wrong? Give me a reason convincing reason.
Why, why she's asking me when I went home and I started reflecting
why she's asking such a question. Because it becomes the norm. boyfriend girlfriend is overspread the movies the type of films that we're watching, spreading these ideas.
So the scholars say beware of infill, Masia, be aware be aware of the sense that becomes the norm of the society, you become desensitized you become you know that will be the norm you will not even bother
that this is wrong, you don't even think about it. Why? Because from all directions, the harm is being promoted.
So the topic today is bringing few elements of these forgotten manners, forgotten ethics, forgotten part of Islam, that if we practice them properly, each of them as we will see now, each of them my brothers and sisters, its reward is general, each of them
and if the reward of such action is genuine,
if the reward of such action is genuine, then the question that we should ask ourselves now, are these things important or not? Are these things part of Islam or not?
Yes. What is the first on the list? One of the things that are forgotten, and by the way, everyone in the room knows what is Hillel and what is how
When I was in into music, and I was trying to make that transition, I wanted to have it both. I wanted to pray. I wanted to love Allah. I wanted to love the prophet SAW Selim, I wanted the Quran, but I also wanted music. I also wanted songs. I also wanted movies. So I used to ask every shave every bearded man, even priests with beard.
Why? Because I'm waiting for one person to tell me
Yes, some music is okay. I was just waiting for that person. I was trying to ask as many people as possible why because I'm looking for my own desire I'm, I'm running after my own desire.
We just read why we're eating a burger show me a message from one in one of the machines who say a las panatela says in the plan for Stockton cannot America. be steadfast the firm upon your belief, as you have been commanded? Not as you have, not as you wish, not as you desire, not as you want. No, no, no, be firm as you have been commanded by last pantile so Islam is a religion my brothers and sisters, to be practiced according to a laws decisions, not according to your own wish and desire.
the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whenever he given instruction, they never had that sickness of why they never asked him they never argued with him. So what is that first thing that we need to revive in our you know in our life? And you may be surprised and you may say this is silly brother. We know that this is Hillel. We know that you know the opposites are wrong. What is it? Anyone can tell me? What is it? Anyone can guess? Something very encouraged. Something very important, essential for a Muslim character. Without it, you can never call yourself a complete Muslim. And its opposite or its opposite can classify you as a hypocrite? What is it?
Let me drink some water.
Huh? What is it very important.
Someone says hello, right?
Anyone can anyone else can get something else.
Just cola higher than being truthful. truthfulness and honesty, an essential part of Islam, you see the brother naturally, we always think of acts of worship, naturally, because that is what we have been told that pray paisa, foster Ramadan and so on and so forth. The the emphasis was always on acts of worship, which is important and not trying to belittle of the acts of worship. What what I'm trying to say is that acts of worship as they are very important in Islam, there are certain other things which are equally important. Equally important, very important. That's why in many of the ayah to an Allah subhanaw taala speaks about for example, FL haloumi noon alladhina homefree Sala
team, harsh on Valentina home anila, we Maradona, Allah subhanaw taala said successful are those believers and then he gives the characteristics of those who those videos number one what alladhina homefree sola team, Harsha own those who pray with concentration with focus not what not during the Salah, they are thinking of TT and samosa no Yeah, they are focusing on on last pantalla and the words and the next
one Latina woman in love with more to do and those who stay away from vain talk, one act of worship followed by one ethic one manner, can you imagine now can you see the value? So acts of worship goes hand in hand in hand with banners and dealings, they are equally important. And the most important one of the most important of all manners is being truthful.
And truthfulness is here can be physical truthfulness and spiritual truthfulness. The spiritual is related to your intention. Why are you praying? Why are you here? Why did you come here today? Did you come here to learn something about the last part Allah so that you can implement it in your daily life or you came here to see that Egyptian guy with a big nose? It's up to you.
And if that was your intention, the second one then you have to let Islam give us that opportunity to flip our intention to change it and to renew it and sit the remaining time in sha Allah for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala not for the sake of anyone and truthfulness and honesty. Listen to what your beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam and my beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah Selim said about this, he said what la cumbre stood for in nasukawa el Burro, we're in an era Yeah, the Elgin. Mama is Allah Rajan just Dooku Why are the harvests Sitka hot October in the law his default the first part of the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Say what? I commend you to be truthful. It's a
commandment there is no choice. I commend you to be truthful. Why? Because truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to gentlemen who doesn't want to go to gentlemen here
Everyone wants to go to general hamdulillah. So here is a key from the keys of gentlemen, to be truthful.
And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam continued by saying, and a man or a woman, for that matter, keep on telling the truth, it becomes a habit, to say the truth and strive, no matter what happened, I'm not gonna lie. Strive to say the truth until they are written with a law as truthful. You will becoming resurrected on the Day of Judgment with a label, truthful Allahu Akbar. So these are the word was used to the car abubaker severe, or the law or law that was he stated because he used to believe in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he never uttered a lie.
Would you want to be resurrected with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam engine? Would you want to be with them? The Companions and the prophets? What do you want to be with them next to them in general? If you want to be with them in Jannah be like them in Judea. Be like them today. That's the criteria.
Jana is not cheap.
Jana is not cheap.
Indeed, there is a commodity there is a product which is with Allah Subhana Allah and that product is very expensive. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Allah in silica La Jolla. Indeed the commodity of Allah is so precious is so expensive indeed the commodity or law is gentlemen.
So you will not attain gender by just sitting say my name is Fatima Shahada Mohammed Mustafa Omar I born in Pakistan I born in Egypt, in Saudi in Malaysia. No gender is not to be given by race.
Gender has to be given by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and by your work,
by your work Work hard towards it. The second part of the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what he called catnip. I warn you from lying.
I warn you from lying Why? Because lying leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to hellfire. You remember when we were young our parents used to tell us if you lie you go where?
You remember this? Malaysians Don't say that. If you lie you go to hell. That's what our parents used to tell us when we were little. And we used to scare when we lie we used to scare that my father My mother is say you will go to hell if you lied.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is emphasizing this fact that lying will make you are a wicked person and your wickedness will lead you to Hellfire Allah Yeah, the biller and a man keep on telling lies you know becomes like a chewing gum it becomes like a habit and strive to tell lies until he is written with a law as liar. May Allah save us we are lifesavers. And that's why when the Prophet when Allah subhanaw taala chose these prophets, that was the criterion. That was the quality last month Alison Moran was Corfield kita ba ba Hema in who can also be Punjabi. And mentioned in the book relate in the book The story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, indeed, he was truthful, he was a
prophet. When he mentioned the Prophet Idris he said the same thing word for word, what chlorophyll kitabi there is a nun who can also do
the same thing I mentioned in the book The story of Idris indeed he was a truthful and he was a prophet. And when the Prophet when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned his smile on a Salaam, the son of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam he said what what Caulfield kitabi was called Phil kitabi smile in who can also the couloir in Ghana saw the palma de Vaca Nora suelen.
And mentioned in the book The story of his smile, indeed, he was truthful to his promise. Promises my brothers and sisters, mobile sometimes make you a liar, right? I'm coming five minutes.
The longest five minutes in the world can be happened only over the phone. Be truthful to your promise.
And look, because Ibrahim alayhis salam was was truthful he taught his son to be truthful. And as a result, both of them are mentioned the honest truth. Sometimes parents the lie, the lie to the children and the children the catch them in the lie. And sometimes we ask our children to lie on our behalf.
Yeah, the phone will ring
and the son will answer and the father from far his uncle Omar. I'm not here. Yeah.
It happens or no and then when they lie to you, you blame them. You beat them. You shouted them from when they got the idea of lying You are lying to them you are making them lie on your behalf
and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he stated his title
by his enemies given by his enemies are solid. I mean the truthful the honest. We need to revive that we need to be truthful. Some people will come and come up with this idea of white line. You know, how many of you here believe in white lies? There isn't any Be honest. Be honest. Anyone any if you heard me
asking this question before it's okay bear with me. But I wanted to know how many of you here believe in white lies? Anyone Be honest and you don't don't be scared? We have few hands.
Okay, who doesn't know who doesn't know white lie is okay or not reasonably? Okay. Who knows that white lies is haram everybody nobody also Allah.
Allah there are some Muslims today as we can see they raised their hand they believe that there is something called white line
and of course there are some people if you don't like white will have purple lines pink lines will make it colorful. You see the cold lies with the good term white symbol of purity.
Can you imagine the profit sauce and this is one of the predictions of the professor Salah He even said that alcohol intoxicants will be named differently to mean something okay, acceptable. So instead of saying I'm going to drink alcohol, nobody talks like that. They say what you're going to have a drink.
I'm going to have a drink, simple, drink water, drink anything drink
and the corporate spirit. Have you seen that? Because spirit spiritual drinks the Holocaust.
So, my brothers is that there is no pink line that is no white line, there is no black line lines are lies, lies is altering wrong information to mislead others or to get rid of your problems. If you have done something wrong, you want to get rid of your problems. So you will lie you will say wrong information lies are acceptable only in three cases we said before
if you are under threat,
if you are reconciling between two people who are quarreling or anyone knows the third
Hmm. To your to your spouse, your spouse, you look at her, you are the most beautiful woman ever, you know? And she told me before,
after the lecture also mentioned that example here I remember, I remember just now, he said but don't exaggerate too much. Otherwise she will call you a big liar.
What is the opposite now? What is the opposite of truthfulness? lying, deceit.
hypocrisy. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I attend monitor. If you wanted to identify a hypocrite, look for three signs. What is the first on the list either have data gathered when he speaks he auto lies. When he speaks he auto lies the first on the list. May Allah save us all. Allah save us all.
That's why the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He asked Allah subhanaw taala to make him firm upon the deen along with me as Luca atharva philam and in another da he say Allahumma inni as eloquently said an unsolvable or ally asked you to grant me a truthful tongue. Imagine who is making that the Prophet the best of all, the one who is declared in the Quran as the one who stands on the top of all moral characters. We're in Naga Lala Hello can have him that same person didn't sit down, relax and rely on that he's still making the heart he's still asking a lot to grant him a true photon. So this is your homework and Shall I those who knows me I give homework Yes. So that those are the profits of the lot I send them mentioned
along with me as a local is an unsolved problem part of a longer though I go and search on the internet about this law. Oh Allah, I asked you to grant me a truthful tongue. Get the DA printed out memorize it say it every day because we need to fix our manners.
A well mannered person without worship.
Any you cannot worship Allah subhanaw taala unless you have the right manners and you cannot have the right manners without acknowledging the Creator.
You cannot, you have to go hand in hand. Look at the lady who used to pray and fast and give charity. They came to the prophet SAW Selim telling them telling him that this lady is known for her prayers and charity and so on, but she harms her neighbor with her tongue. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said La Jolla raffia here for now, there is no goodness in such a lady she is in Hellfire with all her prayers and worship and so on. We have to be very very careful.
So how to be truthful, how to develop the act of truthfulness. We'll have one tip for now inshallah so that we can move on and cover other points inshallah. If you wanted to be truthful stick Can you see the word stick to those who are truthful? stick to those who are righteous stick to the correct congregation correct Gemma stick to them. Because the prophet SAW Selim said, model Allah Dini Holly, a person will always follow and will be inclined to follow the religion or the way of life of his friend. So be careful who your friends are. If your friends are engaging in idle talk in lies in backbiting in gossiping in all these diseases that we discussed in this place before, then you will
follow naturally you will follow what is the solution? If somebody comes back biting your sister or your brother, stop them simple. When you fear the people and not not fearing a loss pal. Some people say that if I stopped the personal bad bites, he will get angry or she will get angry. How about Allah? Allah subhanaw taala we need to develop this. So the solution to be truthful is to be with those who are truthful. And this is what Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran. Yeah, you have Latina man otaku la Hakuna Ouma saw the 18 Oh, you who believe
all you who believe I lost my Dallas calling you and I all believers Listen to this. Well, it talks a law of fear a law, be conscious of a law and associate yourself be with those who are truthful. This is the solution. If you want to be truthful, stick with those who are truthful and stay away from those who are liars. Then you will develop that truthfulness nature, nature inshallah and as a result it will become one of the of your habits which will lead you to gender inshallah, can you see the importance of these manners now? Now, when we start practicing this what we are doing actually we are building, we are completing the deen we are completing the faith, we are not only stuck with
the pillars, I know people have 7080 years who doesn't know anything about Islam except the five pillars. They are still asking about who do
we need to have bathrooms,
you know, physical bathrooms, how to deal with you know, things in the bathrooms, all the lights in the bathroom, we do know Jessa is stingy, all these all these questions all the lives, when are we going to grow? When are we going to ask about something bigger and bigger? When are we going to decorate the house? When are we are going to beautify the house? Yeah. So this is one of the things that can beautify your character and build up your Islam. The second part is very important also is
a riff or gentleness, gentleness in dealing with one another in overlooking each other's mistakes. Unfortunately, we have become so harsh on each other. And if your hands is here, or here or here, or if you put your hands up here, or if you put it down there, we started we start labeling one another with titles. Yeah. And you know, what are these titles? Yeah.
You know, or shall I repeat it? Because we are live now.
We start labeling each other just because these little differences. If you go back and see how the profits a lot It was selling them was so merciful to an extend that sometimes he will actually relax the rules of Sharia. He will relax it.
He will not go with it. Here's a story I'm often asked for the Aloha noir law in one of the resorts. One of the battles called there to celestial
it was freezing It was very cold and he woke up during fudger to pray and he was having a wet dream. He had a wet dream and wet dream according to the Sharia requires what requires a complete shower I complete also, but he couldn't because it was too cold. So what did he do he didn't even make although he make time.
Dried ablution not only that he led the Muslims in Salah the compassion
And after that he told them the story. And then when we when they went back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam in Medina, he explained to him what happened and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him did you let the Muslims in Salah? Why do you have with dream without having Muslim? He said yes, you're a pseudo law.
And then he caught it when he said the law said law to emphasis in the law How can I become rahima do not kill yourself Allah is upon you is a merciful so the prophets Allah Look at this. The prophets of Salaam didn't tell him
he didn't tell him no go now and shower and make you solid now in a in a boiling water not in a cold water in a boiler What? He did not do that.
He laughed and he said he laughed and he said no words. Meaning what we know according to you know the study of the Hadith and the Sunnah of the prophet of settler that whatever the prophet SAW, Selim became silent about it is an indication of his approval. But that doesn't mean that it is a general rule now that everybody have wet dream, okay, it's called let's see, no, no, no, no, don't be smart. It means that for that particular situation, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was with us he was alive. He had the authority to relax the Sharia. But look how merciful he was and how gentle he was. In dealing with such differences. If this happened today, what will happen? The man who
urinated in the masjid
in his master, and the companions rushed towards him.
He told them what leads him to finish. Whoa, Allahu Akbar.
Allah What if this happened today in Malaysia?
What will happen if somebody entered our room now, and he went in the corner and he started urinating what will happen? How many men will run after him?
Maybe the next day we'll be generous for this man.
The profits are seldom the merciful. He was a merciful on our sonalika Allah. Ramadan al amin, we have not seen your Mohammed except as a mercy to mankind. Leave him to finish first after he finished go and clean what he did. Allahu Akbar. And while they are cleaning, he talked to the man in the corner advising him that this is not the place for doing such a thing. The man who came to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam asking him allow me to commit adultery.
Allow give me a permission to commit Zina.
What will happen if someone said the same thing today? That's why we need to bridge gaps between educators shapes, demands, and the lay persons and the youth and the youngsters open your heart receive these questions. Not with a sarcastic remarks or a bad harsh look accepted, accept these you know, little things. It's not little things but accepted from the people from the youngsters so that you can educate them and teach them properly. The prophet SAW Selim immediately realized that this man is infected with the love of a woman or with the love of woman harm relationships.
He told them Do you accept this to happen to your mother and say no to your sister? No to this to that amongst your family members? He said no. see other people too don't like this to happen to their mothers, their sisters and so on. He reasoned with the man
mindedness. You know, soft approach was one of the qualities of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And again, I told you every manner I will discuss today the reward of it if you practice it regularly is
the process of elimination of the Hadith he said, Allah have become the man Yamato, nor shall I inform you about someone which Hellfire is haram for him. Hellfire is forbidden for such a person who is that person to whom Allah Allah not Allah, Allah Caribbean hyenas. Hellfire is haram upon anyone who is so accessible, so easy, and so mild, and so gentle. hora Hellfire becomes haram for such a person.
The harmala couldn't even Hagin sir
it is haram upon anyone who's kind accessible, easy to deal with and gentle and approach and we are learning we have learned the story of Musa alayhis salaam Harun Allah salon and frown we heard this that Allah subhanaw taala send them both How many of you here on engage in our anyone here engaged and our doing our propagation talking to people with Islam?
Don't be shy any Come on. And I can see already the volunteers No, none of the volunteers raise of hands.
Okay, pass passed.
Those who are involved in the hour. And when I say that hour here it means that if you are trying to teach anyone anything about Islam that's that to the best of your knowledge to the best of your ability.
Listen to this story you will never be better than the prophets right? When you when you attain the status of the prophets of Salaam Will you attend the stats of Moosa horror? Oh no, you will never be better than them. And you will never give that power to anyone worse than your own. Never you will meet so many bad people in your life but not as bad as Pharaoh. Yet the prophets Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala it however enough Iran in taba for Pula, who call Elena Allah Allah who we are, we have go both of you to frown indeed he has transgressed all limits, but say to him mild words alone along say to him nice words maybe perhaps he would be reminded and fear of loss
This is a command given to the prophets to deal with the worst of all people at that time for our with mildness and gentleness How about us Muslims towards one another
we have reached to a point that we don't want to pray next to each other because you know my socks is not the same color as us
little differences makes a big big you know, the division among the community. That's why I wanted to urge you my brothers and those who are here while I was sending to the brothers I think some of the brothers with me here so so this is not like a setup or something. I was telling this even before coming to the lecture before meeting check for saying
this is one of the places that I have experienced the best prayer in my life. While like the best prayer in my life the brothers here are following chimpanzee martial law and how he teach the people to pray don't extend that we invited Jefferson to Hong Kong to give the same the same course and then I came here experiencing the real you know in action and the brother next to me his feet was almost on the top of my feet
the follow the end there is there is a practicality
there is there is there is
well I enjoyed it I loved it I was happy because I can see the teaching the theory is now in action because the non Muslims are abusing us or accusing us that your book says a lot of beautiful things but in action you're different and they are right let us be honest because we have become people have intentions my intention is good
my intention I want to quit smoking
pray for me
pray Allah guide me you're smoking you're still smoking
we have become people of intention wishing desires we don't excuse we don't act we need to change our attitude.
The brother will lie brother yes was talking to me in the car and he hit me by saying something like anyway we're gonna live like 6070 years and that's it.
He reminded he reminded me how short my life become.
But it's right it's it's if you if you just make do the math now, how many years are remaining in our lives guys? How many years are we gonna live on earth? So we better correct the remaining instead of losing them and losing the hereafter as well.
And here are actions that the process of selling is giving us on our last part Allah is teaching us that as a result we will be entering Gemini inshallah, even in speech, Allah said wako loling. See Hausner and tell people nice words. Tell them good words, make them happy by telling them I will tell him a
good word is sonica. This is what our Prophet told us. But we have focused only on acts of worship, which I'm saying, again, I'm not belittling of the actions of worship. What I'm saying is that we have neglected other things in Islam, which are equally equally important.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the nature of the law or law
in the law of youth, can you handle rifka or Aisha Allah is so gentle, and he loves gentleness.
I was telling my story yesterday and I said it many times before about how my wife used to invite me to the church.
So my wife was a Catholic for those who didn't know from the Philippines and when we moved to Hong Kong, she used to invite me to her church every Sunday. And because I love her, I used to follow her. Even though I did not accept the fact that I'm staying in a church and standing and sitting in, you know, doing the holy communion and so on and so forth. But every time she will ask me to go with her to the church. I will
Why? Because I love her.
And I'm not trying to send her a message via live chat yet but the point I'm trying to make is that if you love Allah what you should do, if you love the prophet SAW Selim what you should do if a lot of something if your husband loves something you're gonna cook for him. You're gonna cook for him that which he loves a wall of gentleness you should be gentle.
You should be mild in approach you should deal with differences with wisdom.
We have experienced a situation in during the straight path from those who are religious those with beards, but the reaction shows that I'm not gonna listen even to you again.
If you are religious and teaching religion but you behave behind the scene in that way, no how can I get religion from you? We have to behave
as much as we are teaching as much as we are worshipping Allah subhanaw taala to the best of our ability. We have to perfect our mentors in Nana boys to Luton, Lima Makarem Allah Allah I have been sent only the Hadith says like that in nama I have not been sent except to perfect manners.
Who said that the prophets Allah Allah
so I hope and I pray I'm sweating because I feel like you know, this is very urgent, very important moment to, to stand and to sit, you know, reflect over what I've been saying. So we can you know, sha Allah, die upon the right path.
Die upon the right path. Yama, lamb for all nine and 1111 at Aloha, because when sorry when that day nothing will help you in the least nothing your children your wealth, your money. Nothing will help you except those who go back to Allah with pure sincere and sound heart. That's the criteria. The prophet SAW Selim said, Massa welcome back Quran because roti Salatin wocn, Abu Bakr, Seville, the best of mankind after the prophets, he did not supersede you. He did not become more, you know, instead in status better than you because of his soul RCM no he supersede you by something occurred deeply in his heart. That was his secret. His level of Eman was different. He's living over your
clean was different. That's what makes a book superior. Not by his Salaam because Salah is a relationship between a person on Allah subhanaw taala. But manners is a relationship not only between you and Allah, but between you and the people as well. The third point that I wanted to talk about is something also related to the previous one, but it's about the love for the sake of Allah.
The love loving each other sincerely, genuinely for the sake of Allah. Because in general if cases Why will I call you? Why will I call in? Yes. Some icon brother. Yes. How are you? hamdulillah how's your father? hamdulillah how's your mother? hamdulillah how's your sister? She got married?
How's this? How's that? How's this? How's that? By the way? Can you please come to my house? I need a ride. Please. Can you can you drop me to tomorrow? And if you don't mind, so I was not calling to ask about Ileana or his mother or his father or anyone. I was calling because I wanted the ride. But I made that introduction false introduction.
I'm not calling to ask really about alias I don't care about him. I care about his car.
Reflect over this. Next time when you call someone if you need him. Remember you will start suffering How are you? And how's everybody? How are you? Okay? Are you good? Good. Okay, can I can you lend me money please I need money.
There is a man we are told who travelled from one city to another. Why? Just to visit his friend. And Allah subhanho wa Taala send an angel in a in a human form, asking him Why are you going to visit your friend? He said because I love him for the sake of Allah. For no reason. I'm just going visiting him for the sake of Allah. So the engineer responded by saying because of your love for your friend, Allah sent me to tell you, he loves you and wants a lot of you. That's it. Congratulations. Welcome to the winning team.
The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will be calling in the crowd I in Al Maha buena vigilante, where are those who love each other for my glory for the sake of my glory? Where are they allow we'll be looking for those people who genuinely love each other for Allah sake. And to this day, the hottest day where the sun will come nearby our head by one mile. on that very difficult day alone will say
Leon, I will shelter them this day under my shade where there will be no shade except my shade.
On the day of judgement,
people will be seated. Those who love each other for the sake of Allah will be seated on pulpits on pillars of light pillars made of light to an extent that the murderers and the prophets will envy them.
That's the reward of those who love each other for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we know that there is one Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us seven group will be shaded under a lost shelter on the Day of Judgment. One of them is luck to people who love each other for the sake of Allah the meet upon that and the depart upon them know any other words that he needs? We don't meet just for you know, benefits worldly benefits no we meet genuinely because we care about one another. We meet maybe we call each other not only because I want to borrow money or I want the ride. I'm calling you to wake you up for further
maybe I'm calling you to wake up for the one that you have been struggling about for many years and still struggling. Fine that's why I said without Gemma without company without the righteous friends. We are not going to be good Muslims I'm telling you bluntly. The autopsy Allah can build Gemma stick to the congregation stick to unity once you practice Islam on your own.
Yanni inna lillahi wa ala Rajan shaitan will be with you all the time. But when you're together togetherness that that that fact alone that's why we pray even if you are alone. Do you say add Serato
or do you say Idina a dinner soon sirop almost of the guide us even if you are alone praying
that fact alone can improve your Eman can increase your Eman
the last part that I wanted to mention in sha Allah but before that any inshallah, after the lecture I wanted to see one thing to happen in this semester. After you know we can have the hammers and all I want the brothers to stand up and the sisters to stand up over there. And to I see any the people coming close and hugging each other and expressing the love between one another because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one man came to him and told him you know all messenger of Allah, can you see this man over there? Yes, I love him. You see, I love him. The prophets Allah, Allah said and told him what? Go and tell him that. Why are you telling me if I love brother ilias Why will I go to brother
of the law over there and tell him you know, yes, I love him. Why don't you just go to Helios? Yes, I love you.
So I wanted to see that the process Elon told us that go
ahead. Buccola I love you for the sake of Allah and the person who listened to this should respond. me the one whom you love me for his sake love you also, let us revive this sauna in this place before I go shallow okay, but brothers Don't act smart. Don't go to the sister. I love you sister. Never. Don't be smart. Yeah, sisters, two sisters, brothers, two brothers. We love our sisters but expressing it may lead to some issues. Last part plus part very important, very important. One of the most most most important pillar for any Muslim after the five pillars of course, essential manner which is most challenging, most difficult also. So its most important, yet difficult is the
farmer to remain consistent upon the straight path. And what can makes us most of him, what can makes us really reach to that level of is the karma by cutting out the harm from our lives. If you don't cut the horizon from your life, you will remain like a Muslim who's Yo yo yo yo Muslim.
You know, yo yo Muslim. Friday Muslims, Ramadan, Muslims, tarawih Muslims, those muscles will appear in occasions like fruits. They appear in seasons you know? No, no Muslims are, you know, fruitful three all the time all the season. 24 seven, you must be a Muslim. Is the karma one of the most challenging that's why the man who came to the prophet SAW Selim, he told him all messenger of Allah teach me something that I should hold fast unto it. He said it call or a bear la Thoma Stockton say say, declare, my lord is a law and then remain steadfast upon that, after you say allies, my Lord, remain firm upon that belief. Don't go back and forth back and forth. I'm a Muslim. Yes, but fija is
not my type.
I'm a Muslim, but Friday is fine for me. I'm a Muslim, but movies is good. I'm a Muslim, but music is taking all of my time.
We are Muslims. And I always made this as a point for you to remember, anytime you take an action in your life, any action, even you're going to the kitchen cooking,
or you're going to the work or you're using your computer at night midnight. Remember this? If the prophet SAW Selim is next to you, will he approve of that action? Or no? Ask yourself this question. While law he if if you have to print it out, type it, print it out and put it in every room. So that you remember that the profits are seldom wouldn't ever approve these harm elements that have entered our homes, medium movies, destructive movies that teach our children's, you know,
bad behaviors and sexual images and so on and so forth. How could you say Allahu Akbar and stand before Allah? And remember the movie and remember the kissing and remember the hugs and how could you focus and follow how and these images the human cameras stored the image for life?
Right, this human cameras, once you look at it at an image, it will store there forever. You will keep remembering it right? You can go now in time, 20 years back and you can still remember one scene between you and your mom, you, you and your dad. That's why the processor said lower your gaze when something comes distracting you lower your gaze stay away from that which is haraam.
If you want to be always steadfast, consistent, cut out any harm element from your life. Look, even the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam was ordered was commended for Stockton cannot omit all Muhammad, be steadfast as you have been commanded. It's a command to be spoken. The scholar said Allah will determine your destiny with agenda or hell, by your level of instruction. How consistent you are, along with it will determine your destiny with a gender or help me almost panatela save us all.
When this is when this surah was revealed, the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said what Shabbat new hood, the chapter of who made my hair go gray?
Because of the heaviness of the message,
how much more all these messages? How much how much feelings do you have in your heart now to read this whole with really intention to act upon the knowledge? Because there is a difference, as I said, between knowing and doing, knowing and doing the last story here with me inshallah, before we end, this session, sha Allah is the story of the man that I mentioned in the straight path. How many of you have attended the straight path? Has it been so long for so long? So okay, you know, I believe in repetition, and I love repetition. Yeah, so I'm gonna repeat the story of the man that I told you that in the Day of Judgment, inshallah, in general, we're gonna kiss his forehead, who is
that man of the law, it Mahadeva a semi, those who didn't hear his name before please write it down, write it down of the law, ignore a semi a man or send with an army to fight with, you know, the christian nation back then during the time of war. And they will call as prisoners of war over 300. And they were interested to
bring up the live deficit me into Christianity, they wanted to convert them to Christianity. So the king told him what embrace Christianity and I'm going to give you half of my wealth. He said by Allah, if you give me all your wealth, and the wealth of the entire planet, I will never leave the Dean of Mohammed for a blinking of an eye.
Huff This is toughness in toughness of faith.
We put him in the cell they prevented him from food and drinks for three days they give him pork and wine after that he didn't touch them. He said I will never allow you to say that a Muslim have touched the heart on this now the care the sent after him a prostitute to seduce him. To break him because they knew they knew that in Zin our other will our faith is snatched away from the person.
He ran away from her he ran away until the lady went out and she said he is a rock. This is not this is not normal.
The hanging on a tree these should be shot arrows towards his direction they didn't hit him. They broke of his companions and the throw them in a boiling oil
and of the life of a semi he said that I saw the bones of my friends floating on the surface of the oil. They were separated from his buddy. These companions sacrifice the lives for you for you and I so that we can come today and say a shadow La la la la la shadow under Mohammed Al Sabah freely, freely without torture without punishment.
from other people now lucky this country safe I mean no.
And then he cried on the other hand voila, he cried. He wins then the thought he became weak now let's bring it back to the king and the king throne Are you ready now to become a Christian? You say no. So why did you cry? You say I cried because I remember that I've got only one soul if you kill me now that's it. I'm gone. So I wish to have 100 souls so that you can kill me 100 times and every time I will die for the sake of a lot of the law have no deficit me the king gave up on him he told him okay kiss my head and I will let you go free he said no.
Kiss my head and I will let you go free and with you 60 of the prisons. He said no. One of the most stubborn compassionate companions muscle kiss my head please. You started digging him now. And I will let you go free and with you how many 300 the whole lot said okay. He went up and he kissed his forehead
and he freed them and he gives him even 60 concubines you know as gift maids with him okay go and on the way some people talked about Abdullah hidden has ever sent me they didn't like the fact that he kissed the Christian kings for him. They didn't like it. who heard it? Or at the top of the Aloha Norma just men. He said voila, he listened listen to Allah He it is a duty upon every Muslim to kiss the forehead of Abdullah and Mahadeva sent me and I am going to do it first. And he went up and he kisses for him. That's why one of my dreams. One of my hopes inshallah in Jenin after I meet the prophet SAW Selim and drink from his end, I mean, see, I mean,
no energy guy, don't throw me.
After that I wanted to rush and have a look at our Berliner has ever sent me and kiss his forehead and so on all of us.
My brothers and sisters stem Allah knows our nation, Allah knows that we are weak, a Lost Planet, Allah knows that we are struggling to be better. So I don't want you to feel bad if you are still infected with lying. If you are still infected with hatred, if you are not yet on the surface, you know, consistent don't give up. Just do your best. Learn the word Allah subhanaw taala said in a Latina Carlota, buena la Thumma Sakamoto minister Allah, Allah, Allah to half of what has
been generated let you continue to do so those who said Our Lord is Alon Linda remains steadfast, the angels will descend upon them at the moment of death, telling them Don't worry, don't scared, don't be sad and receive the good news of gentlemen. Finally, at the moment of death, you will know that this is gentlemen Allahu Akbar. We are your supporters in this world and in the next. And when you get there, you will have whatever you wish for and whatever you asked for alone wanted to motivate you my brothers and sisters but don't leave this whole without making a decision.
That inshallah we are going to complete our Deen we are going to build up Islam, not just with the five pillars, not just by coming attending a lecture every week and doing nothing after that. In fact, every lecture you attend make notes. And during that week from this Sunday, for example to the next I'm practicing what I have learned in that lecture. And if you do that every week, your knowledge will grow and you will be completing your deen you will be building up Islam. We are Lost Planet Allah forgive us my brother and sister don't give hope. Allah don't give up hope Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran
