smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam Allah say the leveling all occurring while he was in Parliament around the sun in LA with Dean or the LA Manama on mine along with me Robbie shortly suddenly Uncle Mo de la Casa Mila Sania Coco Lee Subhana Allah Allah Melina Illa Allah tena in na cantarella Hakeem Jazakallah Hiram brothers and sisters for showing up May Allah, Allah reward you for the efforts. I know it's very hard to travel

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

especially today.

00:00:35--> 00:01:00

The second law Hiram inshallah, as the topic has been announced, lessons from look man before we get started in sha Allah, we wanted to mention a few facts about this beautiful surah But before that, I this is not going to be at the senior class, okay, it's going to be this extracting some beautiful lessons from this amazing surah. So the first fact is that it has been revealed in Mecca.

00:01:01--> 00:01:47

We know that the certain sutras from the Quran were revealed in Mecca or the sutras were revealed in Medina, this particular surah was revealed in Makkah, and as we know this, the most of the sutras that were revealed in Mecca were related to, to hate the core belief of the Muslims how to recognize a loss of panatela is oneness is the fatties characteristics and so on and so forth. So this one of the essential surah the described or that talked a lot about hate the concept of the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala it consists of 34 is and why am I mentioning this because inshallah, you're going to have a homework as you know, I always give homework and one of the homeworks will be

00:01:47--> 00:02:00

inshallah to memorize this story and it's very short, very sweet. So inshallah make it a goal, that inshallah this week from today Until next week, inshallah, or maybe in 10 days from now, we will, together inshallah, memorize this, so

00:02:02--> 00:02:08

I call this surah the child's education surah. And I believe that if every parent's

00:02:10--> 00:02:45

plan together, read together and study together the surah and go beyond that lesson, by reading books of Tafseer or listening to lectures of the fear of that particular surah I believe, they will extract a lot of important educational lessons that can actually lead their children throughout the life of john very important the child's education, Suren, we are told that Look, man, is one of the wisest men who Alice pannacotta granted him that gift, and as a result, he advised his son in the best way possible.

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

Okay, we're gonna turn off the fan.

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

Zach Lowe halen for giving me more heat.

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

For right

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

and last point here in this segment is that Look, man is not considered to be one of the prophets of God because some people aren't mistakingly.

00:03:09--> 00:03:55

Talking about him as if, as as a prophet from God most most of the scholars mentioned that he's not one of one of the prophets rather he was one of the people who Allah Subhana Allah bestowed upon him wisdom and also he bestowed upon him knowledge Okay, what are these lessons that we wanted to discuss today inshallah six lessons, six lessons are mentioned, and given by Look man, the wise to his son, according to the recording of this beautiful surah number one is to hate to hate the most essential teaching in Islam is the concept of Allah subhanho wa Taala being one the characteristics of Allah subhanaw taala and his names, his attributes, and so on, so forth, though he the second

00:03:55--> 00:04:32

lesson taught by Lockman is honoring one's parents, respecting and being beautiful to one's parents, it's also mentioned this beautiful idea. And the amazing part of this surah is that it's not discussing only spiritual matters, it's not only discussing religious matters, it's also discussing worldly things. So the advice was not only giving to worship Allah and to be dutiful, to the to one's parents, no, there is also positivity is mentioned worship and being positive in the community. being someone who care about others and trying to spread goodness and to prevent evil.

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

Also, look, man, the Wise draw his son's attention to what to the reality of this world what's going to happen in this world? This world some people consider it to be general. Yeah, they wanted to enjoy everything in it thinking that this is genuine. But life is difficult life isn't easy. Allah subhanaw taala said that he had created man in a state of continuous toil and struggle. So don't consider the pliers now.

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

To be gentlemen, this life is a stage where you have to go through these trials so that you can attain Sharla gentlemen, also Look man, the Wise told his son beautiful lessons regarding manners and ethics,

00:05:14--> 00:05:58

manners and ethics which many Muslims unfortunately, are lacking today. Because we have as I said, in one of my classes we have been focused more on acts of worship, yet we have neglected other aspects of Islam which are also equally important also the look man the wise have taught is somewhat planning your life don't just live without knowing where are you heading to? No sick plan and rely on Allah soprano tab. So the homework before we get started with each one and explain inshallah, the details are mentioned the reference, the homework that inshallah we're going to learn this surah in depth on your own when you go home, maybe download some of the lectures on the fear of this surah

00:05:58--> 00:06:11

read it tonight in sha Allah and you make the last action today before you sleep breathing that sort of that you have learned and work on memorizing it inshallah Agree, Agree. And Anthony so that I don't fall asleep.

00:06:12--> 00:06:52

All right, so here's the first lesson taught in this surah actually, the whole surah revolves around the concept of Allah Subhana Allah and His excuse me and his monotheistic nature, and that is my brothers and sisters, the first thing you should teach not only your children, but you should teach your parents if they are falling into some errors regarding a Lost Planet address characteristics, if they are doing certain things that actually could lead them to the major one of the major obstacle one of the major sins in Islam and that is actually the greatest of all sin that Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't forgive

00:06:53--> 00:07:20

is should if a person dies upon that state, Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran in Allah hada young threw a huge rock and he Allah Subhana Allah does not forgive the sin of shirk. But, but He forgive, to whom he wish any other since then that sort of heat is very important what Allah subhanaw taala says in this surah on the tongue of Look man, what if Allah look man who live in he?

00:07:22--> 00:08:04

And mentioned Oh Mohamed winlock man the wise said to his son, by way of instruction by way of advice Actually, I don't know what his advice is a mild advice. What did you tell him? Yeah, buena Yella to Shrek Billa Oh my son, do not ever associate partners with a law. And we know for those who have learned to hate and should, because the hate is there is the belief that the last half Allah is absolutely in control of everything. He is the Creator than the nourisher, the Sustainer of this universe, but the opposite is shirk is to associate partners with him is to pray to other than Allah Subhana Allah to Allah

00:08:06--> 00:08:18

is to consider one of the Messiah or one of the scholars or one of the people with long beards and so on and so forth as something you know, that can bring you closer to Allah so that you pray to them

00:08:19--> 00:08:36

and asking them to pray for you and so on and so forth. These things, you know, shirk is not just to worship because I believe none of us will go and worship other than Allah, but believing in good luck and bad luck. And you know, I remember when when I was young, on our door there was there was on in

00:08:38--> 00:09:24

it used to hang on in our house door, and horseshoe. And we used to have them, you know, regularly and once I asked my mom, what what is the onion for? She said, the onion does not allow the devil to come inside the house. So you see, that was the belief If my mom dies upon the state, all the lads should handle now, there is no onion hamdulillah hamdulillah so you see shirk is not only about worshipping literally something along with a law. No, you could do certain other acts that can also unify your faith. So it's very important to educate our children in the first thing, you teach your children that Allah subhanaw taala is one and only the first thing that you teach your neighbors,

00:09:24--> 00:09:37

that you teach your Muslim brothers and sisters who are ignorant, who doesn't know much. This is the first thing that you start with. In fact, the prophets Allah Allah, Allah silom the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him when he sent his companions to Yemen.

00:09:38--> 00:10:00

Actually, in one narration more either ninja but when he sent him to Yemen, he told him you are going to invite the People of the Book the Jews and the Christians. So let the first thing let the first thing you start with in an in that invitation is what is calling them back to the pain, calling them back to worship and unify a loss of power.

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

altara as being absolutely one So, this is the beginning so whenever you wanted to do that or whether it's your children and your parents or your neighbors your friends start with the concept of hate and there are many books have been written on that subject you know you can go and and in any enrich your your knowledge with that but look at how look man dealt or how man talk to his son

00:10:26--> 00:10:43

number one the last part that I said well if I look man we live in he wahiawa Yahoo that look man talk to his son by a wave and advice by way of an instruction and that was way far away Long, long years ago.

00:10:44--> 00:10:58

When we talk about the prophet SAW Selim, we say 1400 years ago look man came a long way before that. Yes, look man did not shout did not scold his son did not abuse him in front of his you know, friends.

00:10:59--> 00:11:28

He talked to him mildly with a with an advice. My brothers and sister I always insist on one thing, that the way how we we were how we were brought up by our parents. It's not gonna work with our children anymore. The age is different. The time is different technology for them something different. My son seven years old, can play in the setting and can tell me things that I have never been exposed to my son seven years old.

00:11:29--> 00:11:36

When I was his age, my only dream in life is to have a wooden doll that can move.

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

Now everything moves.

00:11:41--> 00:11:51

So the point is the way how our parents raised us up. It's not going to work with our children. We used to be scolded, we used to be beaten, we used to be slapped, right.

00:11:53--> 00:12:00

I remember one One day I was my father brought us to fly. And he says do not take the kite.

00:12:01--> 00:12:29

To your grandma house. My grandma house was in the second floor in the balcony. Do not sorry. He said, like from your grandmother's house. Don't go on the rooftop. But it's not cool. It's balcony in the second floor. You know, the roof of the other balcony will be preventing the kite it's tight and so on. So I told my brother Go and tell my father we wanted to fly on the rooftop. You say no, the answer was no. So okay.

00:12:30--> 00:12:43

So after 15 minutes, I begged my brother to go down again. Big dad tell him we cannot fly. So my brother lied to me. He went halfway and then he come back and he said okay, go and fly the kite to the top.

00:12:45--> 00:12:54

We didn't go into the top of our building we went to another building because it was cooler it was actually there is no wall to the rooftop It was like flat.

00:12:56--> 00:13:01

And so we start flying the kite and who saw us from the ground floor. My father

00:13:02--> 00:13:08

and I just heard my name in the most terrifying ways ever. Why?

00:13:10--> 00:13:28

And I recognize that my dad and I looked you know from the from the rooftop down to our house and I saw my father's waist is outside the window like half of his buddies outside the window telling me come down Come down that same time.

00:13:30--> 00:13:43

So I went down and I my father received me just you know, with with beautiful slaps on my face on my buddy and he tied me in the bed. I would never forget that day. He tied me in the bed

00:13:45--> 00:13:52

you know, for hours and who saved me from him my grandpa, my granddad may Allah have mercy on him

00:13:53--> 00:13:59

but that's an if I dealt with my children today in the same way it's not going to work it's actually going to be worse.

00:14:00--> 00:14:31

Today is the is the is the age of what conversation and and reasoning and convincing and we are told that look man use that methodology with his son 1000s of us back What if our look man we live in a world Why though? When look man was talking to his son by a way of instruction and beautiful advice. Now either. The second part is is that every phrase he mentioned What? Oh my son. Oh my son beautiful phrase. You have an idea.

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

Anyone have children in here? Anyone have children?

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

Do you call your son Oh, my son

00:14:40--> 00:14:48

is difficult. It's not common. We have I heard one brother says this out I heard actually. Brother says recalling his son My son.

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

I heard him once. I caught him in the act.

00:14:53--> 00:14:58

training yourself. And if you are a daughter, call your mom or my mom

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

or my mom

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

I don't know in Malay how to be sound but tell her call her call her with that title, respectful like Ibrahim Alayhi Salam when he used to call his dad You tell him what yeah Betty yeah Betty Oh my father Oh my father, very respectful term. And I believe in every language there is there is that term which is very deal endearment term between son and mom sons and dads and so on and so forth.

00:15:26--> 00:16:01

And then look man gave His Son a practical learning methodology to understand the concept of a las panatela now he'll go go practical with children. He told him Yamuna Oh my son again. Indeed, if anything wrong should be the weight of a mustard seed and should be within a rock anywhere in the heavens or in the earth, along with bring it forth. Now we are drawing the attention of the people that whether you are actually in secret or in public, Allah subhanaw taala is over watching you the least that you do

00:16:03--> 00:16:08

when you are alone in the night in front of you laptop browsing,

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

websites chatting with foreign people are

00:16:14--> 00:16:29

talking to girls or talking to brothers who are not related to you watching images that are haram which Allah subhanaw taala told us in the poor and lower your gaze and guard your modesty don't these things will lead you to that which is major

00:16:30--> 00:17:14

unacceptable action, haraam, Xena tomorrow, by the way we are in we have the workshop I protect against pornography addiction, those who wish to read this register, I think British has the in the sister of the back would help you out inshallah. And this workshop for those who are embarrassed to to register, because I know, once you come into a pornography addiction workshop, everybody will be worried to be labeled as addict. Now let me tell you a story. We have actually in one of the one country we announced about pornography addiction workshop, and martial law 500 people registered, but one of them came to me, you know, and there was no need for him to open his mouth. He said, So

00:17:14--> 00:17:23

Michael, brother, how are you humbler? Actually I'm not coming because I'm addict, you know, just coming because of my friends. It's an issue that we just silent when you don't talk.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

You don't talk like that you just come and sit

00:17:29--> 00:17:38

and learn this workshop, I have five parts actually five workshops on that issue. Tomorrow is the introductory

00:17:39--> 00:17:55

is the awareness stage raising awareness about the issue of pornography addiction and how destructive it is, and how your child can be destroyed his entire and his entire career because of his indulgence

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

in this in this

00:17:58--> 00:18:40

you know evil practice. So when you are acquainted when you are actually when you access the knowledge of this, then you can deal with it if you discover something of that sort husbands and wives who discovered their spouses are into pornography, how to deal with it, what is the right way to deal with it? Because wives things that they are cheated, so they want to divorce and so on? What's wrong with me? Am I not you know, satisfying you and so on. So it's nothing about that. It's addiction, it's a brain disease. It's a brain disease, he is being controlled by that desire, and he can get rid of it and he doesn't want to watch yet he finds himself again and again falling into the

00:18:40--> 00:18:53

same circle. So tomorrow inshallah we'll be discussing this the scientific methods or how to solve the issue and and and what is the Islamic also solution to the problem Sharma.

00:18:54--> 00:19:05

So here, look, man is telling his son or my son, the wrong that you do, even if it is as small as the mustard seed,

00:19:06--> 00:19:23

whether it is hidden in Iraq or in the heavens or in the earth, Allah will bring that on the Day of Judgment you will be exposed to be careful, you're being watched. My son loves Allah subhanaw taala so much my son in brain and May Allah bless him and bless all our children. One day he told me I want to see a lot

00:19:25--> 00:19:42

and of course, according to my culture, if that happened in my time that I want to see Allah How did you How can you see a law Yeah. And he will be beating me. He cannot see Allah full stop. That reaction could make me hate a loss

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

could make me hate Islam. So from the left from day one I was you know, working with my son a nice Yani blah blah knows him. Very kind, very quiet voice. And he loves the last month and you wanted to see a lot I told him Okay, tomorrow I'll tell you any how to deal with that situation.

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

The next morning, it hits me. I said, Hey, wake up, you're gonna see Allah. We went to the beach. And I told him look up now look up,

00:20:11--> 00:20:35

you will see a lot. And he looked up and he saw the sun and he couldn't open his eyes and he kept on learning the guests I cannot is very strong, I cannot look, you want to see a lot of nuts? Yes, look at the sun, they kept on looking and he kept on closing his eyes and his eyes becomes you know, tired, he say I cannot, the light is too big. I said the light of Allah Subhana Allah is much more stronger.

00:20:36--> 00:21:17

You see, oh, he understood. He realized that if I cannot look at the sun, which is part of the creation of Allah, how could they look at Allah which is light is the heavens and the earth, nor on Allah nor light upon light, my son, that little boy went to the school and hamdulillah spraying in the school the whole time, we pray, you have a little math and he pray. And the Chinese, we live in China, by the way. So the Chinese, the know, you know, the to worship is to look at idols and be some status and so on. So the kids asked him what to do when you're praying, when is your God?

00:21:18--> 00:22:01

Say we cannot see a lot how come How come you pray to something you cannot see, you say come I'll show you a lot. Look at the son, my son, he used the same example to explain to his classmates about you know, the the light of holiday, we cannot see it last time. So use these kind of, you know, ways to explain to your children, the the unity and the characteristics of Allah subhanaw taala that will be implanted in their hearts and their minds for for life to come. When you die, my brothers and sisters, make sure that you will leave behind your children, very grounded when it comes to the understanding of who Allah is. When they understand who Allah is, they worship him truthfully, they

00:22:01--> 00:22:14

worship him without you know, nagging them, without waking them up for failure and they are crying, we want to sleep, the favors sleep over worship, and so on and so forth. Look at the last we'll

00:22:15--> 00:23:03

have jacoba is Sanjay Kumar a Sam, when death came to him, he told his children what will you worship after me imagine Jacobo a Sam he knows that all these changes upon the truth. He knows that all his kids already worshipping Alas, pantalla. Yet before he dies, he tells them he told them what will you worship after me? So they responded, we will worship your God and the God of your fathers Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam is, is the Lamb and is ha Isla and wahida one, can you see the answer? Can you see that? how detailed the answers is. That means jacoba salam, he did a good job. He explained to them really the concept of Allah Allah to an extent that the answer is so detailed, saying we will

00:23:03--> 00:23:11

worship your God. Don't worry, the same guy that you're worshiping. We will be worshiping. And not only that the God of your fathers Ibrahim

00:23:12--> 00:23:17

is my and his heart and that God is illa handwara is one

00:23:18--> 00:23:25

one God, one level Muslim. And to him to that God we are submissive, we are Muslims. Allahu Akbar.

00:23:26--> 00:23:43

Allahu Akbar. Make sure my brothers and sisters tonight inshallah plan to write your last will. And if you if you want to consider this a second, a second homework for you. Write your last will to your parents, your friends, your neighbors, your children to come, do not die, except,

00:23:44--> 00:23:48

or while you are on a state of Islam monotheism worshipping only one last planet.

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

advise them never to deviate from the true path.

00:23:55--> 00:24:21

Advise and make, make sure that your children will be raised up in sha Allah praying to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, doing all the rituals only for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala not because they fear you, not because they are afraid of you. Because once you die, you are not around helaas if they were not brought up in the right way, they will not pray because you're not around. That's why you have to teach them that verse on Innes allottee when Uzuki

00:24:23--> 00:24:39

Amati lillahi Rabbil alameen say tell them more Mohamed, indeed my prayers, my rituals, my rights and my entire life can you imagine your entire life should be for Allah and even your death when you die you die upon Islam.

00:24:40--> 00:24:51

This is this is powerful and the Quran Allah a very powerful a to show us how important to live our lives according to the Prophet Muhammad SAW synonyms lifestyle.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

And that's why the prophet SAW Selim said men are surely shy in Matta LA, Whosoever lived for some time.

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

You will die upon that thing. If you lived for Allah you will die for Allah.

00:25:06--> 00:25:11

But if you lived for worldly gains only for collecting money for

00:25:12--> 00:25:20

for only I'm saying only that means it's not it's not haram to make money. It's okay to make money. We need to be rich so that you can donate to Brother shoveling.

00:25:24--> 00:25:58

But what I'm trying to say that should not be your end goal. your end goal is what a loss of panatela that's what we wanted to reach. Yeah, well enough to know Suki or Mahayana Mati the lay of the land I mean, so the first thing you teach is what to hate, and it's opposite schoodic and you must teach him What is the hate in details? And its opposite shirk, what are the things that nullify the hate? This is very important. The second lesson we learned from lokman is we're honoring our parents respecting our parents. And this is considered

00:26:00--> 00:26:14

according to the poor and according to the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As well, the second major sin before drinking alcohol before dinner, before killing before any of these major sins that you think of.

00:26:16--> 00:26:34

This honoring your parents is the second major sin or the second command given by last month after worshipping him any last pantalla in one surah he's in one I said workato or buka or buka Allah taboo in

00:26:38--> 00:26:41

a loss, Allah has decreed has made it compulsory

00:26:43--> 00:26:53

that you should not worship anyone but him and to your parents be good, be beautiful. The second command after worshiping the Lord comes honoring your pins

00:26:54--> 00:27:41

honoring your pins according also the opposite is this honoring them according to the scholars the say or according also to the relations that I will mention briefly, it is one of the major sins it is actually the second of all major sins and it is the biggest one of the biggest of all major sins. So it is a major sins but it is a major sin by itself. But it's also the second on the list of all major sins. Not only that, but it is one of the biggest one of the worst of all major sins. What is my proof here? The prophets Allah Allah Allah send them defining major sins, he said, and cupbearer SRA Kabila while cuckoo la cabeza, or major sins are to associate partners with a law and to this

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

honor Europeans.

00:27:44--> 00:28:05

And according to this narration, also the second major sin apply SRA Kabila or aku velodyne. So associated with a lot and to this honor Europeans, the biggest of all, one of the biggest one of the worst of all major sins. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in one of his narration lucam Allah Akbar

00:28:07--> 00:28:44

Allah Akbar and he started shouting to the companions, all of a sudden, shall I inform you about the biggest of all major sins? Three times they asked him What is it? All messenger of Allah He said Alicia Kabila well, who can validate again, shrug, blah, associating partners with a law and to dishonor your parents, according to look man's in this beautiful surah it is mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala said that we have enjoined upon man care for his parents, his mother carried him now the is reminding you of your history, how did you come up to this world.

00:28:45--> 00:28:57

Your mother carried him increasing her in weakness upon weakness, and he's winning in two years. So being great, be grateful a lot of saying you'd be grateful to me, and to appears.

00:29:00--> 00:29:17

He's always associating in commands, to worship Him, to be grateful to him. And to be beautiful, and to be grateful. Also to your parents. Even if they are nagging you. Even then, even if they are annoying. It's okay. We annoy everyone.

00:29:18--> 00:29:27

Right? We give headache to everybody. But when our own parents give us some issues, we act in a different way.

00:29:28--> 00:29:41

We act in a different way. We need to go back and we need to sit next to them if they're alive. Sit next to them talk to them while Allahu Allahu alayhi. Sometimes my brothers and sisters, they feel that they are already dead.

00:29:42--> 00:29:48

Even though they are alive. Why? Because we are always while we are on the dining table. We are on our cell phones.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

And we eat so quickly and we rush we run to a room. We don't want to sit with them. We don't want to hang up, hang out with them, you know, talking to them. How are you

00:30:02--> 00:30:03

How was your day today?

00:30:05--> 00:30:11

We don't talk to them like that. We talk to our friends for hours over the phone chatting, Whatsapp.

00:30:13--> 00:30:23

But when it comes to our parents, while law him telling me again the field that they are dead sometimes, even though they are still breathing, but once they die, what do you do?

00:30:24--> 00:30:39

What do you see? How are you wish to go back even one minute, just one minute. And that's the same feeling I had when my father died. My father died I was in Hong Kong, and I couldn't fly. My uncle's told me don't fly anyway, by the time you reach, he will be buried.

00:30:41--> 00:30:48

The only thing that came into my mind how are you wish to go back in time? And give him that tight hug that he wished for?

00:30:50--> 00:31:32

Yeah, so the point is, don't wait, do not wait until they are no more they are no longer around. So that you can regret and say how I wish you have a chance now. And for those who lost their parents already, don't worry. There's there's something called the law that we've been neglecting the tool that Allah has given us the weapon that Allah has given us that could change the problem. The only thing that can change his destiny is and he had given that power to you yet we are not using it. So ask Allah use that power. Ask a lawyer Allah grant her the highest agenda, grant him the highest agenda and unite us together in sha Allah on the day of judgment in gentlemen. Any those who was the

00:31:32--> 00:32:06

parents or any of them, pray for them continuously pay saw the harm that may have continuously pay them back something of what they have done to you when they were alive. But those whose parents are still alive today. seize the opportunity. sit under the feet, ask them to make the art for you. The Dwyer is most likely to be accepted. One advice reminding us a lot reminding us of our history. Your mom carried you your mom feed you your mom change your diapers. How disgusting that is.

00:32:07--> 00:32:17

For men Yeah, I'm talking about men. How many of the men who have tried to change diapers though baby a little baby? Shake your man did you how enjoyable it is?

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

Not really not pretty?

00:32:23--> 00:32:54

But look your mom mama bear that will be that mama hates it's it's something grieving sometimes I receive emails from brothers and sisters complaining about the mothers. And I keep on saying well law II if I had the opportunity to go back in time, I would just sit and serve my mom. Because I have caused a lot of pain when in those old days. So don't ever give yourself a time to regret. But there is something here Allah subhanaw taala tells us that if they have strived

00:32:57--> 00:32:59

if they are strong if they have strived hard

00:33:00--> 00:33:19

to make you worship other than Allah subhanaw taala then Fela Tutera Homer do not follow them. do not obey them when it comes to the rights of Allah do not follow them. So there are also limits and you will do a loss of Hannah to Allah put them the second after his worship he put them the second to be honored.

00:33:21--> 00:33:39

After associating partners with a loss pantalla he made the major the second major sin is this honoring parents yet there is a limitation. There is a limitation there is no absolute obedience to any creative being the absolute obedience to Allah subhanaw taala alone.

00:33:42--> 00:34:03

So if your parents told you remove your hijab, no that is the eyes of Allah Subhana Allah No, don't do Salah too much. Don't put niqab Monica can be compromised a bit sometimes but the minimum requirement for a sister is an arm salon. Don't don't don't worship Allah subhanaw taala No, no, that's not your right.

00:34:04--> 00:34:25

Allah He their husbands sometimes who tell their wives to remove their job because they don't look pretty in Manila in La La Jolla. So when it comes to the rights of Allah, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said what? There is no obedience to any creative being on the account of this obeying the Creator. When it comes to the rights of Allah Subhana Allah no one should be obeyed.

00:34:26--> 00:34:33

So there are also limitations. The third part here is worship and positivity.

00:34:34--> 00:34:55

How look man the wise advised his son to worship Allah subhanaw taala regularly and to be positive in the community beautiful. four things in the following Ayah he said Yamuna Optimus Sala what marble Morrow 100 mooncup was berala sabak Oh, my son established the prayer and I believe she

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

Sharif. A lot of

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

During the conference for those who have attended the conference, he talked about the difference between praying performing the salon and establishing the salon. How many have attended the conference

00:35:14--> 00:35:20

on the few in the last year in the garage Oh, you guys you're in Malaysia these events you should seize the opportunity.

00:35:21--> 00:36:03

So the difference between performing the salon establishing the salon is what established establishing the salon is establishing a connection between a las panatela that you wait from the time of the father to the time of arrival you're anxious you wanted to play you want it to meet a law that's establishing this law performing is you just you you you make any the obligations being lifted from you. But are you rewarded? Are you gaining, you know, blessings? Are you? Is the prayer impacting you in real life? That's the question you have to ask yourself. So establish the salon and enjoying what is right not only do what is right, encourage others to do right.

00:36:04--> 00:36:12

What are more vulnerable, talk to people about that which is good. Today, if you want to implement this area is very easy. Shall I tell you something

00:36:13--> 00:36:17

to do an extra homework, if you want to implement this if

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

you do Asia as never before, do your last slot today inshallah as never before stand before our last panel data as if this is your last solo. Beginning a lot change me if you have some weakness in your heart. If you're struggling with some problems, addiction on the internet, lack of productivity, procrastination, any of these problems that's bothering so many people today, big a lot today during Asia solaia a lot change me and I'm ready to go through that struggle. So this is number one, establish the solo model, go home tonight and tell the people in your room about the lesson. Give them an advice. Give them one tip

00:37:01--> 00:37:02

ordered them to do something

00:37:04--> 00:37:27

and one hand in monka and abstain from that which is evil and encourage people to abstain from that which is evil. telling the people this is haram. This is Hello. Don't be shy. Don't say that people will be offended. Sometimes we don't want to advise our friends. Because why? Because they will feel that I am extremist.

00:37:29--> 00:37:32

Yeah. I don't want to mention the term that is very popular nowadays here.

00:37:34--> 00:37:38

I'm extremist when I'm telling the brother Brother pray you're a Muslim.

00:37:39--> 00:37:45

Or don't listen to music or don't watch these filthy movies to destroy your mind, your extremist.

00:37:46--> 00:38:16

So we are working to let to hear a label from someone. But we are not worried about a las pantallas comment. We don't care about that. We don't care about how we will be standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala on the Judgement Day. And Allah subhanaw taala is going to ask us what have you done for the deen? What is your contribution for the deen? Your sister was already misguided and you didn't even open your mouth to guide her. What have you done?

00:38:18--> 00:38:26

Who are you compared to over the Hakama de la Han Waldo the first military embrace Islam he became the most positive of all

00:38:27--> 00:38:40

who fought against the prophet SAW Selim and he won the battle. And after becoming after he became a Muslim, he became the Chief Commander of the Muslim army throughout his his you know, his his region.

00:38:41--> 00:38:50

Their hearts have changed 20 you know, upside down 180 degrees for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala belaga the Alon or the

00:38:52--> 00:38:56

southern Naboo Of course, all these names, study them, a snap,

00:38:57--> 00:39:11

a shot of the Aloha norva all these people have contributed a great deal because of them. We are Muslims today. What have you done? So Be positive, be positive and don't worry about people labeling you with these kind of names. Don't worry.

00:39:13--> 00:39:24

Don't worry about personal attack. The prophet SAW a lot of selling your beloved prophet SAW Selim was abused was accused was beaten, he was about to die in a hug. He didn't care about personal attack.

00:39:25--> 00:39:43

He cared about what delivering the message and that's your role because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said believe one nulo a lie IE this any imagine imagining the province of Salaam begging the Muslims do something. convey your mind we have even one single area that you know

00:39:46--> 00:40:00

how many of us doesn't know Allah convey that. We have neighbors who are non Muslims, explain to them what is full of all our neighbors. Don't be shy that people will come and abuse you or accuse you or or say that and don't be

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

Should I just speak? Yeah.

00:40:05--> 00:40:45

Child upbringing Here are some tips also that you can add to your list inshallah child upbringing is not about securing your, your children's financial position. It's not all about money it's not about about leaving behind tons of money for them. But it's about making them responsible to handle that money. This is more important to make them responsible. There are many people who got spoiled because they grew up in an environment, everything is easy to access. And as a result, they lose it also because they will not talk to be responsible. raise them up upon worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. That's the first priority in life.

00:40:48--> 00:41:29

And it's going to be your responsibility. You know what? It's going to be you responsibility parents, or even children who did not teach or he did not guide the parents who are on the wrong path. It will be your responsibility. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Na na na na, na, wa salam wakulla Shang in Asana, houfy man and movie we are writing down Allah Subhana Allah and His angels are recording down what you have done and what you have left behind your influence your children, if you have influenced them in the right direction in the right way Allah would warn you and if you influence them in the wrong way, you will be responsible you will stand an answer before

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

last time.

00:41:32--> 00:41:47

Don't teach him only to perform Salah rather teach them to love solo and they will not love solo without loving a las panatela to teach them how to love Allah. How to love Islam how to love the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam,

00:41:48--> 00:42:27

buy them gifts and tell them this is from the blessings of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah purchase that for your love wrote this for you. Every time you bring a gift and it is a it is a lie everything we belong to Allah. So buy something valuables and give it to them and tell them it's from Allah. But Allah required you now to pray, he will pray everything really related to Allah subhanaw taala and his blessings. They will love Allah subhana wa teach them the stories of the prophets of Salaam, his sacrifice. Teach them the story of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam. These are the stories that we need to engrave in their brains and in their hearts, rather than giving them

00:42:27--> 00:42:46

cartoons and movies that will spoil the brains while walking. We were talking about Abu hanifa today me and brother Shandling when he was eight or 10 years of age, he stood up in front of a Christian King. And the Christian King was starting to cast doubt in the hearts of the of the Muslims at that time he told him

00:42:48--> 00:42:52

where his alarm was, it was the was the question Where does Allah

00:42:53--> 00:43:29

where is the direction of Allah? And what Allah is doing now? something of that sort. But the point is not about the questions the prop the point about 10 years old boy answered these questions in front of the king. Yeah, and the fact that he opened his mouth and spoke in front of a king. That is sufficient. Forget about what he said. And forget about what he said. In fact, he made the king move from his you know, torch on the top, he made him go down and he stood in his place on that situation. 10 years old.

00:43:30--> 00:43:46

So it was it's not my age, it's but it's about wisdom is about learning is about education. It's about faith, to teach them these things, but you give them cartoon Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and whatnot cause finished their mind to be there.

00:43:47--> 00:43:56

Yeah, may Allah save us or teach them to be positive in life by helping others teach them to help others, give them money and ask them to go and give charity.

00:43:58--> 00:44:11

When you see someone in need, let your kids be part of it. Don't say they are still young, teach them from that very young age. So when they grow up, they will remember these situations they will imitate

00:44:14--> 00:44:39

Okay, the next lesson that we wanted to emphasize inshallah is teach your children the reality of this world, the reality of this world. So here are a few points for example, teach them not to be wasteful. There is a sickness going on in our society, which I any my chef told me it's called El El Moussa. And el annamma

00:44:40--> 00:44:50

informasi is not mentioned here, but elephant NEMA is the danger of your comfort zone, your children's comfort zone, they always have whatever they asked for.

00:44:51--> 00:44:54

Food is available, fancy food,

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

certain lifestyle and so on and so forth. The must learn at certain point that there is no

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

Know

00:45:02--> 00:45:44

that which they have been used to there is no today sorry we don't have tomorrow inshallah maybe be patient, teach them not to be wasteful when you give them money tell them this money is for two days and let them see it let them you know observe them and see how would they spend this money, it will phenomena, the reluctance you know the comfort that they have everything attend Be careful, teach them not to be wasteful. NFL Marseillaise even more dangerous, willful masa is to get used to the sin, getting used to see the sense you are not performing sin anymore. having to rely on not performing the sin, but seeing people perform sins becomes normal for you. It doesn't disturb you

00:45:44--> 00:46:08

anymore. see people doing harm becomes the norm in the society. So it doesn't disturb you. This is dangerous. This is dangerous. And your silence you're not talking about it. And you're saying everybody's doing it. So what can I do? As if the majority wins? You know, the rule of majority wins. Is this what Allah told us in the Quran? Is this was the prophets of Salaam folders majority wins. In fact,

00:46:10--> 00:46:13

while I cannot throw home lay on the moon, the majority doesn't know.

00:46:15--> 00:46:19

Yeah, this so the law says the majority are ignorant.

00:46:20--> 00:46:32

So we shouldn't follow the majority we should follow the hook. We should follow the truth in the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim that what we should follow, even if the whole world is doing the wrong, wrong is wrong.

00:46:34--> 00:46:35

Even if the majority is doing it,

00:46:37--> 00:46:38

Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran

00:46:42--> 00:46:47

wakai luminaria Shaku and among my servants, very few are grateful.

00:46:49--> 00:46:50

Now you want to be with the majority

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

Would you like to be with the majority, because the majority are ungrateful.

00:46:57--> 00:47:09

So make sure every time I lost Python, I mentioned something about the few are doing it. And this is you know, praise worthy, be among the few you make sure to be among the few. Yeah.

00:47:10--> 00:47:35

Teach them to be dependent, depend on themselves, give them tasks and observe and instruct them and mentor them. I have a program Shall I wish and I pray and can come back and chill and deliver it here. It is mentorship for teachers, and for parents, how to mentor little ones how to cross you know, to bridge the gap between older generations and younger generation This is we are missing this in our society.

00:47:36--> 00:47:41

Teach them how to manage money, as we said earlier, and how to spend it for the sake of Allah.

00:47:42--> 00:47:58

Excuse me, teach them that stability of this world is impossible. By the way, those who wish to get a copy of the presentation, you can email me inshallah, we'll mention the email at the end we can get the whole PowerPoint, I can immediately inshallah. So the stability

00:47:59--> 00:48:43

of this life is impossible, life is going up and down, things will change. So teach them to get ready for that. And that's why I lost it in this beautiful surah what's berala cassava in Delica Mina has been more and be patient upon that which before you Be patient, teach them to be patient, sometimes we are living in a good time sometimes is a difficult time in both cases we accept and we are content with the last time teach them the story of Southern Navy or pas who became blind at the end of his, you know, before he dies and they asked him and southern nebulous was known for you know, his supplications always being accepted. So we asked him Oh Sam, why don't you ask Allah

00:48:43--> 00:48:54

Subhana Allah to restore your site you saved by Allah. By Allah, the destiny of Allah subhanaw taala upon me is much more beloved than my eyesight, teaches him to be content

00:48:55--> 00:49:01

and happy with what Allah subhanaw taala given them the law, the other point is manners,

00:49:02--> 00:49:43

manners and ethics, something that we are missing in our society. As I said earlier, there are people who are very, very good worshipers in our community, true or false, very good worshipers, but they're lacking manners. And there are people who are very, very well mannered, but they are not praying they're lacking worship. What we wanted to achieve is that beautiful balance between acts of worship and beautiful manners, we wanted to achieve that beautiful balance, we are not perfect. we as human beings, we will keep on making mistakes but doing our best. Allah will observe that what manual for Salam Alaikum wa rasuluh say tell the Mohammed work hard Do your best, then allow will

00:49:43--> 00:49:56

observe that and His Messenger and the believer so you do your part. Strive you will not reach any the level of the prophets and the companions but we are trying to reach near that state Closer.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Closer to ascend closer to

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Top one so on and so forth

00:50:03--> 00:50:46

the prophets of Salaam amongst his earlier innovations in NEMA both truly author mimma macadam, Allah I have been sent to perfect mentors, one of the earliest narrations, the earliest Hadith to indicate that matter goes hand in hand with acts of worship. Don't just pray without having the right manners and don't be well mannered without recognizing a las panatela and worshiping him properly. And that's why look man had advised his son in regards to this point, he said, Well, I thought I'd have the cleanest one of them she fell out of the model ha, in Allahu Allah bucola Matalan for who and do not turn your cheek in pride away from people.

00:50:47--> 00:51:30

What are the words are actually is an infection that camels suffer from Kevin's the suffer from this infection. And what happens is sometimes when they turn their their neck in a certain way, it gets stuck and it doesn't turn away. It is as if Allah Subhana Allah is telling you that if you turn away or chicken pride away from people, maybe Allah will seal on your heart at that moment, and he will never give you a chance to repent. Be careful. Have you heard? Have you seen those people who are quarreling and one of them started initiating reconciliation and goes to his sister or his brother saying, sorry, forgive me. And while he's talking or she's talking the other person, don't talk to

00:51:30--> 00:51:41

me. Have you? Have you seen that scene before? I don't want to talk to you. Yeah, have you seen that? This is SAR. Wala don't turn your chicken pride while

00:51:42--> 00:51:56

the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said layer cloudengine he will not enter gentlemen, very dangerous, very dangerous statement. Who is that person? Man? Can you call the E myth Karla verwalten

00:51:58--> 00:52:05

whosoever has got an atom weight of arrogance in his heart, there is no agenda for him. What are the chances?

00:52:06--> 00:52:09

An atom my brother's is I don't know how small that is?

00:52:11--> 00:52:18

I don't know. I don't know how it's very dangerous statement. lyoko you will not enter into such a person who have arrogance in his heart.

00:52:21--> 00:52:30

manners. It's all about acts of worship and being good to people being kind being generous. being selfless.

00:52:31--> 00:52:49

Being good to your neighbor is all part of Islam it's all a part of that package called Islam. And then look man said what said famous Sheikh Waldman, Celtic in Kerala, Swati la salted Hamid, and be moderate in your pace when you walk be moderate.

00:52:51--> 00:52:57

When I walk with my wife in shopping malls, I spent an hour walking

00:52:58--> 00:53:00

one hour walking brothers

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

one hour walking within the shopping mall, because the sisters have got this

00:53:07--> 00:53:15

any habit when they go to the shopping mall, the stand in front of every item, whether it is on the list or not.

00:53:18--> 00:53:53

But just give a list to a brother. And you see in less than 10 minutes he will finish the list he will buy and he was out of the mall. One day I was with my wife May Allah bless her. And I hate shopping. I don't like shopping, even went to the grocery to buy stuff. And I was like out so quickly. And he kept on begging me by this by a normal Yeah, let's go Hello, I get some. And I went with my wife and I told her Listen, I you know, I don't like shopping, I would just wait for you in the car. And I stretch my back and I waited for her in the car. 20 minutes, 25 minutes, and I fell asleep

00:53:54--> 00:54:25

about 35 minutes or 40 minutes. Then she came you know, I slept in the car waiting for my wife just doing shopping with four or five items. So when you walk, walk moderately, don't just walk so deadly slowly or too fast that nobody can actually catch with you. And that is for the men, the men who's walking next to their wife. Sometimes they're like trains and the wife. She's carrying her bag and she's dragging her feet on it to catch up with her husband and be moderate in your pace and lower your voice.

00:54:27--> 00:54:34

When you talk to each other, lower your voice don't sometimes we we shout because we wanted the opposite person to shut up.

00:54:36--> 00:54:46

In Arabic we say we LABOUM the salt right? We said overcome them with your voice. When an argument with with just shouting. And

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

be be be nice. Be more learn from the process. Tell him how he used to discuss with these enemies. The people who opposed him, the people who came and told him you worship our gods for one year we will worship your God for one year. Imagine

00:55:00--> 00:55:22

Such a conversation. And the prophet SAW Selim was nodding his head all the time. He didn't interrupt a man inviting him for sure. He was just listening. And after the man finished, you told him into hytta. abalone, did you finish? Oh, absolutely. He said, Yes. Can I talk now? Look, look at the art of conversation between the professors and him and his enemies. Do we listen to each other today?

00:55:24--> 00:55:34

I don't listen to you just because you came from a certain background. You're from this country? Oh, I know. Okay, I know. I know. No, I'm from Malaysia. I'm different. I eat Italy.

00:55:37--> 00:55:40

What's it we must be be moderate.

00:55:41--> 00:55:53

Indeed, the most hateful disagreeable of all sound is the sound of a donkey. So when you shout at anyone, remember, Allah had made this you know,

00:55:54--> 00:55:56

similarity between you and

00:55:58--> 00:56:06

an animal dunk. May Allah save us all. And last point is planning one's life teach your children to plan their lives.

00:56:09--> 00:56:24

And the same idea here we will we will use the same idea number 19 of surah. Look man, because the word wachsen has got to meaning what Sufi mystic and be moderate in your pace. That's the translation found, but actually the Arabic word

00:56:25--> 00:57:10

it has got two meanings walks it he machine means be moderate when you when you walk not neither too slow or too fast. But the other meaning means what? purpose? You know, we have a field in Islam called Mikasa. The Sharia the purpose of Sharia? What is the purpose of Sharia? What is the goals of Sharia? So it is as if we wanted to read the ayah with that meaning it would read as an have a purpose in your journey in this life. Be a purposeful person, don't just live to eat and drink and get education that says no, no. What is your purpose in life? What do you want to achieve to benefit the community? What do you want to leave as a legacy before you do your demise? have a purpose in

00:57:10--> 00:57:17

your life planet sit down and write it I was talking to Brother Chesley. He's coming up with a beautiful course guys, whenever he inshallah

00:57:19--> 00:57:25

announced that course, it's called the full the full pocket, Allahu Akbar,

00:57:26--> 00:57:41

Allahu Akbar the full pocket and he was talking about Doha and how how important that tool is and how important it is to write down the Doha that you wanted a las panatela. To respond to, and to make it as if it is your goal in life to achieve beautiful.

00:57:43--> 00:58:12

So in sha Allah, Annie, I hope and I pray that we would take this surah seriously From now on, and apply these lessons in our lives in sha Allah, He is something convincing. One or two is in the prime of very convincing not only to children, parents, neighbors, friends, but to those people who doesn't believe in lost contact. For example, this beautiful about Allah subhanaw taala say he created the heavens without pillars, can you see? Can you see the heavens above the sky without pillars.

00:58:13--> 00:58:29

And as cast into the earth firmly, set mountains less it will shift or shake with you and disperse they're in from every creature. And we sit down rain from the sky and make grow then in plants of every normal kind here is,

00:58:30--> 00:58:40

you know, an explanation of how Allah Subhana Allah works. And what did He create? And the next ad say, what, how the how to law.

00:58:41--> 00:58:48

This is the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. So show me, show me what others have created beside him. Show me

00:58:49--> 00:58:59

show me any rival who can compete with the last panel and his creation. I met a man in one of the universities in the Philippines and he came to me and he told me

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

if you he asked me something like that, he said, Do you really believe in God? So he was an atheist? Do you really believe in God? I said, Yes, I believe in him. Can you prove that? I told him if you have, sometimes Yes, we can discuss this. Okay. If you were to prove to me that God exists. If you ask anything from Allah, will he give it to you?

00:59:26--> 00:59:46

Listen that very well, because sometimes they come with a set of questions in the minds and they're waiting for a specific answer, so that they hit you with the third one. You wanted to call it you? I told him no, no, wait a minute. First you asked me if I if I believed that God exists or not. Do you believe that God exists? said no. Can you prove to me that he didn't exist?

00:59:48--> 00:59:59

Can you prove to me because you're asking me to prove that God exists? I said, I believe and I could sit with you and explain. But how about you can you can you prove the opposite, that he don't exist?

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

He says yes, I don't see him. I don't feel him. I don't touch him.

01:00:06--> 01:00:16

Okay, that is not approved. This is not approved. Do you see the air that you breathe in? Do you see it? Do you touch it? Do you smell it? Nothing?

01:00:17--> 01:00:19

How can you prove that a god exists?

01:00:21--> 01:00:50

But I told him now The point is, I claim I claim, this is my claim that the heavens that you can see in front of you the things that you can see and witness and the sun and the moon and the stars and me, all of these are the creation of Allah. Can you do something similar? Let me make it easy for you. Can you create one single eyebrows now? If you didn't? I follow you. I believe in what you believe. When he left the conversation.

01:00:51--> 01:00:56

fajita la Vika for the one who disbelieve became dumbstruck.

01:00:57--> 01:01:22

Yeah so reason this is the creation of a lot. What have you done? Those people who come and say we don't believe that God doesn't exist, what have you done, compared to the creation of the universe which we claim that this is made by the creator of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now the next segment I want to talk about the wisdom, the wisdom that Allah had mentioned the first era of this beautiful surah says,

01:01:24--> 01:01:40

me DeLuca tokita bill Hakeem. I mean, these are the verses of the wise book. For last month, I was telling us from the beginning, that these words are wise words,

01:01:41--> 01:01:44

words that need reflections and thinking.

01:01:46--> 01:02:13

So what is coming next is something valuable, very valuable. And then the first man is mentioned Guess what, what the last paragraph says, Look man, the first time he's mentioned while China Look man, and we have given man the wisdom so the words of the Quran are wise and the man who's teaching his son is also why is Allah subhanaw taala had given him that wisdom now what is wisdom? Anyone can define wisdom to me

01:02:15--> 01:02:17

sisters brothers wisdom

01:02:19--> 01:02:23

Charla we're gonna we're gonna give you something any coffee maybe or something?

01:02:26--> 01:03:12

Okay, here is use a nice piece I found it on the internet we say knowledge is knowing that tomato is a fruit but wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Yeah, it's classified as fruit but putting it in a fruit salad doesn't you know spoil the taste of sweet fruits. So wisdom actually they say what or shade a family or putting the things in the right place or doing the things in the right time at the right in the right place. Right. You see when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned about the Prophet promises and says who are levy Botha philomene or sola min whom yet luallen at all use a key while you are Nemo elkie taba well Heckman, it is Allah subhanaw taala who has sent among his people, a

01:03:12--> 01:03:23

messenger from amongst themselves, why reciting the his verses upon them? Why use a Kim and purify them and teaching them Al Kitab the Quran and wisdom.

01:03:24--> 01:04:03

Knowledge without wisdom could mislead people could actually cause more damage. You have to be very wise in dealing with you know, in educating the people you have to be very wise. Yeah, last time kinda when you talked about iE salesianum. He mentioned something similar, that Allah subhanaw taala says, A Salah is lamb, oh Jesus, son of Mary, remember my favorite upon you and upon your mother, when I supported you with the pure spirit or the original to those and you spoke to the people in the cradle, add in maturity and remember when I showed you the book and the Wisdom again, I told you the book, the Injeel

01:04:05--> 01:04:22

or that scripture and wisdom so the wisdom wisdom very, very important what is knowledge that we are talking about here, the knowledge that has been revealed in the Quran and through the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed sauce and that is the knowledge that we are talking about, that we need to give to our children that is missing from our school.

01:04:24--> 01:04:28

These these these deep knowledge are missing from many many of our schools at young age.

01:04:30--> 01:04:34

So sometimes you find people who have memorized the entire Quran but they don't understand a word

01:04:35--> 01:04:44

or they know the Quran by heart but they don't apply it and we look at the the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim they understood the value of the Quran that's why they use to

01:04:45--> 01:04:48

one of the companions say we will learn 10

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

and we will never move further without implementing them in our daily lives. These denia we finished them house we implemented them we will move to the next Oracle

01:05:01--> 01:05:07

I used to say something similar. I will never move from one idea to another unless I implemented the previous one.

01:05:08--> 01:05:32

That's why he memorized SoCal Baccarat in eight years. One Nation said, another generation said 10 years who Omar mahapatra de la hora implementation is very important. What is wisdom, as we said to say, or to do the right thing in the right place at the right time, this is wisdom to say, or to do the right thing in the right place at the right time.

01:05:33--> 01:06:00

Okay, let's go practical now. some practical tips inshallah for you to take home. All right, smilla, take lokmanya and I wish and I pray that you will take this sort of very seriously. And the wisdom narrated in those six lessons as an example for you to raise your children or to impact people around you, your parents, your neighbors, your children, your family members, your your your classmates, or whatever. So take it seriously.

01:06:01--> 01:06:17

To implement it inshallah. Enough reading the parameter is a big you enough breathing the poor and only to gain that awareness or to gain the rewards of reading it. That's good. Do it regularly, no problem. But let's go a step further by implementing the meaning.

01:06:18--> 01:06:26

adapting the meaning and making it part of our daily lives. I want to tell you one story, my chef told me that he shaved he went to visit history.

01:06:27--> 01:06:40

And he and they have an appointment. Look at this story. beautiful story. They have an appointment and my shipment the door and his shape told him from behind doors in a job go back.

01:06:42--> 01:06:44

Let's go back we have an appointment chip open the door is

01:06:46--> 01:06:49

the third time open shift. Are you joking? You say

01:06:50--> 01:07:21

three times. And of course my shake also knows the ethics once you knock three times the How do you say one? Go back? Don't knock the whole night. And it has three times nobody responded or it was set you go back go back the next day they meet so the sheriff told him what happened what what was wrong with you yesterday, we had an appointment, you invited me home. And I came and he told me go back. This is just before you come in I was reading the Quran and I passed by the ayah.

01:07:22--> 01:07:31

And if it is said to you, when you when you visit someone and if it is said to you go back, then go back then I thought to implement this idea with you.

01:07:34--> 01:07:41

To that extent he wanted to make that I a life to see it happening in real life. Very simple thing.

01:07:42--> 01:07:59

Maybe we will consider it very silly, right? But there are some people living the poor and the poor and for them is a relationship. It's not just a book that is you know, on the shelf to be visited from time to time or Ramadan. Or when somebody die, let's record something. No, no, they wanted to live

01:08:00--> 01:08:04

and they wanted to see it implemented do that. Try to do that.

01:08:05--> 01:08:06

Be like Mohammed.

01:08:08--> 01:08:12

Mohammed, in fact, the one who conquered you know Constantinople,

01:08:13--> 01:08:25

and he never seen the prophet SAW Selim. He never seen the prophets of Salah. But there was one Hadith, the Prophet salaallah Salah mentioned you say, Constantinople shall be conquered?

01:08:26--> 01:08:58

Well, a fella named amuro amuro ha well, an MLG. You should you should. What a wonderful Amir, what a wonderful leader that we that would be what a wonderful army that army would be. Mohamed el Fattah heard that heard from his father. And he said, I will be that Amir. I will be that leader. I will implement that narration I will bring the words of the prophet SAW Selim to reality and guess what he is later. He's battle is being told today.

01:08:59--> 01:09:20

The way how he conquered Constantinople is to be taught in schools, Allahu Akbar, just because you have faith that the prophets of Psalms words are true and it's going to happen anyway. So why not me to be that leader? So he worked hard, he prepared an army and he conquered Constantinople. I'm not asking you to conquer any land

01:09:21--> 01:09:41

cooldown yet, but I'm asking you simple things go and read one ayah from the Quran and see what Allah Subhana Allah wanted you to do and perform that act or one of the Hadith tubers so McAfee wajir he cassava a smile in the face of your brother or sister is Saba you can do it now.

01:09:42--> 01:09:47

That you have read that you have already written and this is something that will teach you inshallah, the mobile will explode or something

01:10:09--> 01:10:30

this is something that can actually make the knowledge stick in your mind is to go home and rewrite what you have written or in So, you have written it twice then you will inshallah remember this lesson for life, make the same notes but properly draft them in a nice way. Maybe different colors, sisters will have millions of colors.

01:10:31--> 01:10:53

What makes me handleiding I asked a lot to be firm, I asked a lot to be steadfast, I'm asking I'm begging a lot to be firm. And being a lot to be consistent. When I tell you be on the straight path. And it's the karma doesn't mean that I'm firm and honest, the karma, okay, I'm hoping that the last pantalla will make me firm. And always upon this department, I mean, but what makes the

01:12:00--> 01:12:13

transition becomes easier It was my wife and all praise be to Allah Subhana Allah and the wife who kept me, you know, under control. I told her how, you know, she has that surveillance eyes, you know.

01:12:15--> 01:13:00

And sometimes we need someone next to us, unfortunately, in our agent time, we, and we should actually, we should worry more about a lost hobby watching us than human beings, right. But sometimes being in the right in the righteous company also helps a lot in a great deal. So one of the things that can help you to remain consistent, is righteous company and hamdulillah I can never thank Allah enough for bringing into my life after leaving music and that company for bringing into my life, such wonderful people, wonderful teeth, teachers and, and mentors and shapes and friends who helped me to be the man I am today. hamdulillah. So look for the righteous companies and stay

01:13:00--> 01:13:21

away from those who are inviting you to that which is harm. Eliminate the harm from your life and you will become consistent and firm in sha Allah. In respect to our parents what happened if they are Muslims, but still invites us to deeds that are against the will of Allah worship. As I said earlier, there is no obedience whatsoever

01:13:22--> 01:13:40

to any creative being including your parents on the account of this obeying our last pantalla so if your parents are advising you or inviting you to do anything that goes against our last commands and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the Quran is very clear, fella Tahoma do not follow them.

01:13:41--> 01:13:44

What will be the consequences a slap on the face okay.

01:13:46--> 01:14:27

Yeah, the kick father will kick you in your stomach or in your knees, Hamas take it and hamdulillah foofy said we will for Allah sake and the companions face much harder test than all of us. Be polite. Do not shout at them. Do not act arrogantly. Allah subhanaw taala also the poor animal Sakuma for dunya Moreover, always be kind to them. You know, so long as they are alive, even if they are inviting you do that which is haraam? Be kind to them. Say No, I'm sorry more I can do that. Exactly low height and I'm praying for you and for myself, but I can do it. Be polite, be nice. Yeah. But don't follow them. If they are inviting you to that which is how long you

01:14:30--> 01:14:31

want to himself.

01:14:36--> 01:14:37

You're

01:14:38--> 01:14:38

trying

01:14:40--> 01:14:40

to find one.

01:14:49--> 01:14:52

worldly matters. Okay, and

01:14:54--> 01:14:55

keep your foot on the ground.

01:15:00--> 01:15:43

Okay, Jessica Lohan actually also even if you even if you want it to be successful in any field that is required in Islam, that is important in Islam to be successful doctor to be successful teacher to be successful lawyer, it's important that we have, you know, Muslims are successful in many to be successful businessman, why not my wife is doing business trade business export import, but that does not prevent her from praying on time does not prevent her from wearing Hijab does not prevent her from saying sorry to men wanted to shake her hand does not prevent her from performing hands when she was able does not prevent her from fasting does not prevent them from acts of worship that

01:15:43--> 01:16:15

are required. insanity. Plus, you always always have an intention that you business, your business should have a portion for Allah sake. Well levina pmle him have Vaughn Marlowe, hop on hop on alone, Lisa at Walmart, all those people among the character, the characteristics of a good Muslim are those who are in their will there is a portion always always given to those who who asked for it and those who are needing

01:16:16--> 01:16:42

the give. So even if you want it to be successful businessman or successful doctor or successful, anyone anything, so long as you have that intention, the last part of our investment business now how to make that balance early. It's a time management issue. It's a time management issue. The Prophet Muhammad SAW someone for example, said that the early hours are blessed for my own, the early hours, if you want it to be productive work after fudger.

01:16:44--> 01:17:00

Start from fudger. until early morning before going to work or live for hours, you will see for hours that you can do things that you no one in the world will do if you if if if they are sleeping, they will not be able to achieve that. Read a book.

01:17:01--> 01:17:03

supplicate to Allah.

01:17:04--> 01:17:07

do exercise like me, or like brothers

01:17:08--> 01:17:31

do do something you have from 5am or 6am until nine, three or four hours you have chunk hours you can do a lot. And the prophet SAW Selim said that this time is made blessed Baraka is in that early hours don't don't lose that. Don't waste that and then go work. Then go work. And when you want to know in your work, don't don't go on Facebook.

01:17:32--> 01:17:45

Don't go on YouTube. Don't go on Twitter and you want to make your money Hillel abstain from these things because that's hard that is haram. The boss did not hire you so that you can use your Facebook and update your Facebook cover.

01:17:47--> 01:17:57

Or make a tweet here or there. The boss didn't hire you for that. But you're using his computer you're using his time you're using his electricity for your own benefit is that Hello.

01:17:58--> 01:18:00

And you don't need this color to tell you haha.

01:18:02--> 01:18:35

So So long as you're always conscious of a las panatela balance your time between spiritual you know needs for the soul and also your needs for putting food on the table and work and become successful. We mentioned we know the story of Han Baba, one of the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim was seated to the Prophet, listening gathering and abubaker sodium and they were listening to the process of selling teaching. And after they finished the halaqa they finished the class handler went home and he didn't feel the same.

01:18:36--> 01:18:40

So he said what Volvo Honda is a hypocrite.

01:18:41--> 01:18:51

And he went to complain to Abu Bakr, Allah Allah He said, Oh Baba when I'm with the prophet SAW Selim I visualized gentlemen I could see Jenna The feeling is different.

01:18:52--> 01:18:56

But when I'm with my family, we don't talk the same thing I think my faith is different.

01:18:58--> 01:19:08

So because of the law on our last one, me too Let's go to the prophet to complain let's let's see what's going on. So the prophet SAW Selim smile and he told Han Viola and

01:19:09--> 01:19:47

Allah satin was one hour for your spiritual needs and one hour for your life for your wife for your you know, play here and then in a Halloween for by Allah if all the time you will be thinking about Jen and Helen, you you know as if you are all the time in that mode. Allah will send an angels will send angels from the sky to shake your hands if that's the case, but this is not the case we are human beings we need sometimes to fulfill other desires other needs but do not ever compromise when it comes to the most important

01:19:49--> 01:19:54

instructions and an obligatory is given by a last parameter don't compromise that. Yes.

01:19:55--> 01:19:58

So long as no compromise ation, you can do other stuff.

01:20:00--> 01:20:02

Yes, sister? Yes, please

01:20:15--> 01:20:17

tell him what you just told me. No.

01:20:22--> 01:21:04

Hello. So you you just don't respond. Simple. I'm very simple man. You said that there is a man who propose to get married but no manage yet because you need to wait for certain things and so on. So there should be no communication in private whatsoever between that person and you until you get married. That's that hallway. Now he wanted to talk to you, he must talk to you in the presence of someone else amongst your family, or amongst his family, or one close friend of yours, who must be there in the conversation sitting listening, you know, what are you saying, huh? Why to ensure that shaitan will not come and do something How long? That's it. That's the only purpose to secure the

01:21:04--> 01:21:23

relationship to maintain its Hillel way how to convince him there is no you know, you don't need to convince such a person system. You just tell him this is what is halal. If you wanted that, it's okay. If you insist on that, then I don't think that we will remain you know,

01:21:24--> 01:21:34

future husband and wife he have you have to respect you for that. You have to value you for that. Yeah. Just be straight. One more question.

01:21:37--> 01:21:41

Any question from the floor first? anyone wanted to ask anything?

01:21:45--> 01:21:47

Yes, 25 from get please.

01:21:56--> 01:21:57

Everything is

01:22:01--> 01:22:04

everything is smooth for you. There's no problems.

01:22:06--> 01:22:07

Be happy.

01:22:09--> 01:22:12

Be happy system. Actually, there is a story that

01:22:14--> 01:22:38

I don't know if it is authentic or not. But I heard it somewhere in a lecture where a companion was not feeling it was always feeling okay. Everything is smooth and easy and good. So, another companion advise him by telling him No, no, you have to see the Prophet there must be something wrong. So on the way to the property fell down and he broke his knee. So the company told him don't go to the Prophet now Allah had remembered you

01:22:42--> 01:23:24

so yes, it's a bit a bit of concern you should pray now make Darko law that if you are blessing me with an easy smooth life if if you're not angry at me, I don't care. But if you are punishing me or if there's something along the way waiting for me that is harmful, prevented, prevent them from happening any increase your connection if you're worrying that your life is so easy Mashallah. Everything is good and so on. If that worries you increase your da to Allah subhanaw taala especially at night system. ask Allah if that life that you're giving me is a blessing of humble light, thank you. I'm grateful. But if something else is awaiting me that is harmful, please prevent

01:23:24--> 01:23:33

it from happening. And he is the giver of everything he's ever had. And if he noticed and he witnessed your sincerity he will give it to you Allah bless you says

01:23:36--> 01:23:45

Don't worry inshallah nothing is gonna happen. And if everything is easy money coming money coming easy also system because we wanted to the NATO Muslim.

01:23:48--> 01:24:03

May Allah bless you system. I love this. Okay, here's a question. The surah says be mild with the kids. These days kids are quite rough and in disagreement with the parents in their behavior and conversation. How do you manage the situation, there is a difference between being

01:24:05--> 01:24:41

being aggressive on your children and being firm with them. You can be firm in giving commands, showing them that you are not happy that you're angry that you are not satisfied with aggressiveness of the nature that stretching your hand and beating them the professor salon prohibited that. The problem there is one tradition says the professorial and never hit a child or a woman with his hand he never be like the professor, sell them. And to be honest with you, brothers, I believe that there is no such thing as a bad kid, rough kid, tough kid, there is no such thing. There is a lack of a good parent.

01:24:42--> 01:25:00

There is a lack of a good educator. That's why that boy became rough become became tough, become became naughty, and so on so forth, because you did not bring him up from day one and the right in the right way. So now, if you wanted to change that behavior, if you wanted to change that attitude, then

01:25:00--> 01:25:08

Huge you know steps that can be taken you know you have to change your approach a little bit you have to talk to him one to one

01:25:09--> 01:25:23

you have to apologize sometimes when you as a parent make mistake let them respect you for that yeah but you have to change the approach if you have tried already shouting slapping and doesn't work change your approach by way of conversation. Any other questions so long

01:25:28--> 01:25:30

muscle brothers are like

01:25:32--> 01:25:33

beautiful silence

01:25:38--> 01:25:39

enjoying the view

01:25:41--> 01:26:03

so any questions? If no other questions then we'll end the session shala and those who would like to register for the AI protect workshop please meet the sister at the back and the brother for registration I protect will be a workshop a whole day workshop we will spend a lot
