00:02:03--> 00:02:14

heard he had utter holier green facade our Torabi was la mucho la casa de la la back. If you look at human history,

00:02:16--> 00:02:23

and then come to our history, as in the history of our nation, as in the Muslim nation,

00:02:24--> 00:02:27

you will notice that the early stages of Islam

00:02:28--> 00:03:01

at the dawn of Islam, there were two main world powers, empires or superpowers. So on the one side was the Roman Empire, and on the other side was the Persian Empire. And both of these empires had reached the zenith of power. So they boasted political stability, military capability, economical prosperity, and an influence that covered much of the globe.

00:03:02--> 00:03:07

And this sandwiched somewhat in between these two was the Arab peninsula.

00:03:09--> 00:03:21

And the Arab peninsula was a hot, barren, harsh environment in which a segment of Arab society lived.

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

They were scattered across an endless desert.

00:03:27--> 00:03:31

As a people, they seem to have nothing going for them.

00:03:32--> 00:03:38

So this united, an educated purposelessness lives.

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

And against all these odds.

00:03:44--> 00:03:55

This is the phenomenal part against all these odds. so harsh climate, barren land, limited to no resources

00:03:56--> 00:04:09

are people insignificant compared to the major civilizations, like there was no huge army, trained, disciplined, organized, it didn't exist.

00:04:10--> 00:04:17

So against all these odds and challenges, a civilization rose from the Arabs

00:04:18--> 00:04:26

and pretty soon it extended from Granada in Spain on the one side to New Delhi on the other.

00:04:28--> 00:04:38

So, I read history, study history and I try to look for cause and effect reasons like what happened.

00:04:39--> 00:04:47

And you study civilizations, certain things are prerequisites. So for example, water

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

in a water is a very important part of developing a nation civilization country with whatever you want to call it. Even this, you know, City of ours birth

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

When the you know Captain Cook and the rest camp

00:05:04--> 00:05:08

they settled here because of the water you know by the Swan River

00:05:10--> 00:05:17

because the land is fertile it is green and all the rest of it important yet they had no water

00:05:18--> 00:05:50

like inside the Arab peninsula one quarter is considered the vacant land cause dry desert uninhabitable. The maca was the center of life the Quran describes it where the innovative the Zara a place unvegetated so water didn't exist, then you think hairloss no water maybe they had something else. And look as you may you won't find any of the ingredients that will make a civilization

00:05:51--> 00:06:04

so you know, massive armies didn't exist. Discipline population didn't exist, human capital didn't exist. Gold didn't exist food nutrition nourishment,

00:06:05--> 00:06:18

like the proper tools, the prophet of God. You know, there is a hadith about him Salalah alayhi wa sallam that he was in an orchard picking dates from the floor and I. So food was rare.

00:06:20--> 00:06:21


00:06:22--> 00:06:29

and yet, out of Norway, the civilization not on the

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

savanna survives

00:06:33--> 00:06:43

within a short few decades, it catches up to the other civilizations and not only catches up to them and overtakes them

00:06:45--> 00:06:49

and not only overtakes them, it flourishes and excels.

00:06:50--> 00:06:58

So tonight, we want to look at that and see how and lessons to draw from that.

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

For our for our lives.

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

So notice a few things do ones

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

a lot of bulldozer Buddha

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

intervened in their lives

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

by a prophet.

00:07:16--> 00:07:19

Allah didn't intervene with gold

00:07:21--> 00:07:27

and he could have intervened with gold because you saw the profit or you value his salon.

00:07:28--> 00:07:51

You know, he was ill for many years and then Allah cured him and then he was bathing and gold nuggets started to fall from the sky for him and he collected it so had a lot of wood so wanted to you know, equip them with gold, gold what have rain from the sky one Metallica de la hibiya Z's easy Allah, but Allah did it.

00:07:52--> 00:08:12

For the children of Israel, Allah Buddha as the open water. What is this thus far moose la palma de Vaca neurobiological hedger from federal admin hosts Natasha ina strike almost out with your staff hit the rocks, the rocks gushed out water water unlocker, I've done that a lot of Blizzard didn't

00:08:14--> 00:08:28

a lot of good could have brought food from the heaven for them that listen people you need nourishment he is food go and do my bidding a lot of belligerent and he did it for Bernie was right in Manoa Silva was, you know, came down from the heavens for them.

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

The only thing Allah Buddha gave them the intervention was a prophet.

00:08:37--> 00:08:42

I missed messenger by definition carrying a message.

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

The message is the deen of Islam.

00:08:48--> 00:09:02

So Allah, Allah is through the deen that the following that's what we are unpacking tonight. Allah, Allah is a change changed the hearts and change their minds and change their conduct.

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

I want to say that again.

00:09:06--> 00:09:18

A lot of bourassa change the hearts change their minds and change their conduct. And then the rest was organic.

00:09:19--> 00:09:29

Like once you embody those changes that Allah sent, you can't help but become successful. And this life and in the next.

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

So start with the first one first with the heart.

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

So when the raw Souls was summoned to the office of prophethood he can to the people with this message. Yeah yohannes Hulu La ilaha illAllah to flow or people make the declaration. Mike the proclamation that there is none worthy of worship safe.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

One mighty Allah in success will be yours.

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

This is a matter of the heart.

00:10:09--> 00:10:18

Like in your heart of hearts, there should be nothing that you rely on are subservient to save the one mighty Allah.

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

And this is the utterance of Rasul Allah, Allah says in diverse had a flat,

00:10:29--> 00:10:34

a flat moon, and the those with the correct belief are successful.

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

So don't assume we can in a time where there are 360 idols in the Kaaba

00:10:43--> 00:11:05

to one Arab population, you know, easily offended sensitive creatures, swords by the side, tribal, and deeply devout to these idols. A highly liberal body remembers that my father sacrificed 100 camels for a single idol,

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

a lot of devotion, a lot of love,

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

a lot of reverence and yet wrong belief. Can you imagine man bowing down to a stone asking help from it?

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

So a lot of Buddha is sent the messenger to correct the belief first.

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

So don't assume

00:11:31--> 00:11:44

that declared that there is none worthy of worship. Like it was a pretty courageous statement to make. You know, for people with 360 Gods you say none of this is true. There's just one God.

00:11:45--> 00:12:01

And in a time where there's no police protection, difficult time so you saw harassment started abuse started, imprisonment, started torture, started assassination started execution started, they bore the brunt of it.

00:12:02--> 00:12:03


00:12:04--> 00:12:09

within the few years and those that kind of accepted Islam,

00:12:11--> 00:12:25

the superstitious Hocus Pocus of idols disappeared, and a true belief of the one mighty God and the dots and the ones that did a few things.

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

The first one

00:12:28--> 00:12:34

is that gave access to the normal human being to the majesty of the Creator.

00:12:36--> 00:12:44

For years, they were turning to a rock that couldn't do anything. Now they had access to unlock the Creator of the heavens and earth.

00:12:46--> 00:13:13

And that is a game changer. You know, in the time of Mr. Malhotra they fought the Persians. So one of the mighty generals of the Persians was caught, brought to the court of Omar tied up. sama looked at him, you know, yesterday you were on a throne, and you had a crown and Persians were big on crowns. You know, the Emperor had a crown 92 kilograms of gold.

00:13:14--> 00:13:40

The question you should be asking yourself is what type of neck handles 92 kilograms of gold. And no Persians didn't have big thick necks was just suspended off the ceiling, just to hover on his head. And so magnificent that if you entered the presence of the Emperor, the king, you saw the wall we fell down and suggested to him

00:13:42--> 00:13:52

so this was a general with his crown and with his entourage and with the spawn then ceremony and now he's tied up and brought to America upon.

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

So Omar Abdullah Andrew asked him what what happened?

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

You were all that.

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

So he says what you should have known. He said, when the fight was against between us he knew it was easy. But how do you find the one in the heavens?

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

Do you understand?

00:14:17--> 00:14:21

Like now Allah is in the equation we have no power against that.

00:14:23--> 00:14:29

So this simple people latched on to the Creator.

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

And with that scam,

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

all the treasures of the Creator

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

so here, first campaign budget

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

how many Muslims Ha.

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

preset Mashallah 313 you in my heart one Friday.

00:14:51--> 00:14:58

So 313 and 313. The opposition

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

1000 strong

00:15:04--> 00:15:13

and scholars differ, scholars differ. But there's a while to say there was only eight swords amidst the Muslims.

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

They hadn't come

00:15:16--> 00:15:22

for a battle that come to write a caravan you don't need so many weapons you know you

00:15:25--> 00:15:34

so Allah gives the reason of the cause of the success, but out you know they were victorious, uprooted the enemy one.

00:15:36--> 00:15:48

So Allah says, if the tester v through now robber confessed Agia Bella come, Annie Mamadou combi elfin mineral mela equity Moodle the theme

00:15:49--> 00:16:00

that remember when you called out to your load, and Allah accepted your call your please your glasses and he said I will help you with 1000 angels coming row after row.

00:16:01--> 00:16:09

So Allah sent them and there are soldiers on battlefield and he says he has gibreel dressed for war

00:16:11--> 00:16:29

and you will think all of us you know Muslim testimony biased you know the prophets encouraging them maybe there were two people standing on a mountain nearby non Muslims you know, waiting for the battle to finish so they could come down collect the what's fallen from the swords and this and that, and one of them died.

00:16:30--> 00:16:46

So they asked them why did your friend died? He said his heart burst. So why did his heart burst he said, you were out of fear what fear he said we heard the nyang of the horses from the clouds above and saw the sparks of the hooves

00:16:47--> 00:17:09

saw his heart burst so in inside the campaign you would see a person chasing you know a Muslim chasing an enemy and before he reaches him demand a slain and, and another instance the Sahaba called one person or so and so come and he goes I'm not him. I'm like angels were on battlefield. Do you see

00:17:10--> 00:17:20

that? what it did is it gave them first and foremost connection to the one above the heavens

00:17:21--> 00:17:39

and have a lot of bulldozers on your side. Everything else will take care of itself. So lesson number one here dear ones tonight, you will face difficulties and obstacles and challenges and hardships in life. Keep a law on your side.

00:17:40--> 00:17:45

Keep a lot of boys on your side. And success is yours.

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

first lesson,

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

second part.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

Eman did something else

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

as significant if not more.

00:17:59--> 00:18:04

You see yesterday they were shackled by all types of fears.

00:18:07--> 00:18:13

And I read a beautiful statement recently it's all the success you want is on the other side of fear.

00:18:15--> 00:18:22

So you yourselves others, you are stuck in an unhappy job because of fear. You're stuck.

00:18:23--> 00:18:29

And in a bad situation because of fear. Fear is what holds people back.

00:18:31--> 00:18:31


00:18:32--> 00:18:39

when there's no fear of Allah in the heart, Allah fills it with the fear of everything else. Remember that.

00:18:40--> 00:19:24

If the heart is not filled with the fear of Allah, Allah fills it with the fear of everything else. So you're afraid of sickness. So you take insurance and you become afraid of losing your job. You'd like job security insurance and you're afraid of your mortgage, you know, and so you understand me as alive. You wake up fear, fear, fear, fear. And then superstitions come You know, you walk under a ladder. Oh my god, what happened? I walked in there. Let's walk a few times this what do you get me that was their lives are life filled with fear and superstitions and shackled by false gods and false ideas. And a man can and release them from it all.

00:19:26--> 00:19:43

And release them from it all. And they become what I call superhuman superhumans. Like you look at the Sahaba and the challenges they faced and the obstacles they conquered. A normal human can do it.

00:19:45--> 00:19:49

Should I give you some examples? Hey, I'll give you one.

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

This is the Battle of Malta.

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has sent these people

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

the first way they didn't hide it.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

And Javelin, Abu Talib and

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

Abdullah, ignore our

00:20:06--> 00:20:20

instructions. Listen, they doesn't charge. If he folds, Java will take the reins. If Java folds up the lead node or how will take the reins. If I'm the lead that I have falls then choose a leader from yourselves.

00:20:22--> 00:20:25

They were expecting Is there a way to get the econ working?

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

I'm happy to pay x.

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

Hello, standard

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

This is it. Hmm.

00:20:45--> 00:20:47

Now I had the same problem at curtain.

00:20:48--> 00:20:52

None I stopped the mic. It's like I'm complaining about the economy changing.

00:20:55--> 00:21:00

I love this. You as does nazeem is my teacher. And like when I was here, he was my maths teacher.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

Allah bless you all. So

00:21:07--> 00:21:16

so we had the same problem at Curtin there was an acorn problem. So I thought curtains a bit further away from the river. So a bit cheap, then we can pay on time.

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

But they're still charging the old hex money and all that stuff. Anyway,

00:21:24--> 00:21:27

Angela is looking at me, no, Chef, you're overdressed. You know.

00:21:33--> 00:21:42

None of it's not just me. I've got a little young Gilda. She's been fanning her face, like I'm looking from here. So because of that, I said that Allah bless you all.

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

So point

00:21:47--> 00:21:51

I have to say this, and then I've got a sister with a blanket.

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

She's my students and families.

00:21:58--> 00:21:58


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

Allah bless you all.

00:22:03--> 00:22:07

I used to teach her in the olden days, like she was my student in class. And

00:22:09--> 00:22:21

you know, she used to go to her mom and talk about my sense of humor and how I pick on them and class and stuff. So it seems like she hasn't, you know, that the madness has started again.

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

Welcome, young lady.

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

So the second

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

point was,

00:22:28--> 00:22:36

was the fears dissipated. So now there are certain things you fear for example, confrontation is something we all fear,

00:22:37--> 00:22:43

and then different levels of confrontation. War is a scary concept of law safe one or the other.

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

Now war if two equals of fighting is problematic.

00:22:50--> 00:22:55

Now these Muslims were sent to odds you cannot imagine.

00:22:56--> 00:23:08

Like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sent a few 1000 and although historians differ, but one some is that the 150,000 came out against them.

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

One some

00:23:11--> 00:23:16

and they went the against Arab tribes, but the Roman legions came instead.

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

You know, from Rome.

00:23:21--> 00:23:28

So can you imagine fear like that? Like Imagine you're surrounded by 10 people and in a dark alley, it's a problem.

00:23:29--> 00:23:32

But these people are facing like, call

00:23:33--> 00:23:39

unsurmountable odds and you would think they would go pale.

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

You know, nervous, shake.

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

Worry, panic.

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

You won't find

00:23:53--> 00:23:56

like it's as though they didn't know fear existed.

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

You know, this is the second commander

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

Jafar Abu Talib. So the first ones aid fell.

00:24:07--> 00:24:32

So Jafar holds the standard and gallops into the enemy. And then he thinks in difficulty the horse might run back. So he jumped off and hamstrung the horse. And then he This is heard on battlefield him saying, you have Belgian native walk, there are a button robbery Don't shout out to her. Woo.

00:24:33--> 00:24:34

woo her favorite

00:24:36--> 00:24:58

ensemble her or Jana. Like in in Battlefield, you should be scared against odds. Instead, you're gonna have better genetics, Dr. Rob whoo ha, or the beauty and delight of Geneva and how close you are like just beyond this. I'm in Geneva. Do you understand? Like, where he should be scared and nervous. But do you see what a man does?

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

My the obstacles on this slide nothing and then he is not the isolated one. So you know how they struck him?

00:25:09--> 00:25:34

His right his his right hand got cut. So he held the standard with his left hand. So they cut off his left hand. So he held it like that. And then they snapped him through and as he's falling the standards about to fall so they get it and they say Where's Abdullayev? Not Ah ha. So Abdullah Pereira who was the third commander in charge his

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

his cousin has just given him a piece of bone with a bit of meat on it like here have a bite?

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

And he's he's having this in the standard camp

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

and for a second he carried

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

you know for a second like he's

00:25:53--> 00:26:18

you know him and then he says this to himself in the hearing him Yeah, enough so man Nikita Cora Hina mode or so why are you afraid of this? Illa Dr. Lee moody has a helpful motor portfolio at one time and needed bapatla tt What are you afraid of death, this is what you were seeking. And you know, what you desire is just in front of you. Then he tells himself like, you know,

00:26:20--> 00:26:42

all my soul unless you know you die here, you will die somewhere else. So go face your destiny. And he galloped into it and the Prophet sallal laahu was send them as narrating the story to the Sahaba in Medina, like miles away, but my point is, difficulties like that to where you would would have thought they would break.

00:26:44--> 00:26:45

It had no effect on them.

00:26:47--> 00:26:48


00:26:49--> 00:27:00

Cause of the power of a man. So a man gave them the strength to succumb all types of odds. And this is just fear, hunger can

00:27:01--> 00:27:09

and they overcome acute hunger? You know, the stories. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in the Battle of condom.

00:27:11--> 00:27:27

And the Sahaba says I saw you know, it reached a time hunger was so bad that they everyone was tying rocks on their bellies. Do you know why they call a gastric bypass these days, you know when they put a sleeve on the stomach to make a tie.

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

But they used to put rocks to tie it so you know

00:27:34--> 00:27:49

becomes smaller shrinks and then they don't feel hungry. So then they reach the level like you know, if you're still working with a rock on your stomach Morales pretty low, like give you and if it was a small time, you know, like, everyone's everyone's tired. So

00:27:50--> 00:27:55

these ones they started to compare size of rocks, who's got the biggest rock

00:27:56--> 00:28:12

and they looked at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam three rocks on his blessed stomach. Because he's not hungry. yet they're still working. And not only that, you hear this in the ranks like in the Muslim ranks

00:28:14--> 00:28:37

of La Houma, La Jolla and Dana while Casa de la la Selena for NZD. Home Misaki in Atlanta, Elena was a bit awkward Amanda in La Nina on life it wasn't for you, we wouldn't have been guided we wouldn't know sideline, we wouldn't know the cause, oh my god feet firm when we meet our enemy, and support us and strengthen us. morale is high.

00:28:39--> 00:28:57

But what's what's the secret cause it's not food, knows that equipment knows its situation like they're not in a cinema, you know, and not a small army. At this stage. Muslims are 1400 fighting men 10,000 plus have come against them.

00:28:59--> 00:29:12

You know, annihilation, and in those days, they would come and attack your house and take your women and children and your boys would be their slaves and your women would be the boys those days. And, and they can see all that,

00:29:13--> 00:29:37

like at the verge of annihilation, but they believe in the confidence in the man and the fearlessness at such a level that it has set them free from the shackles that everyone else is shackled by. So the second outcome of a man is that that sets you free from the chains that shackled all the rest of humankind.

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

Third, and I will race through this

00:29:44--> 00:29:45

is the man

00:29:46--> 00:29:54

in a lot of Buddhism gave them a higher authority to listen to and obey.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

So everyone else

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

goes through a difficulty in life. A challenge comes a situation comes, they don't know how to deal with it. For example, let's look at Divorce, Divorce comes, how to divorce, what to do, who was right, who was wrong? What's the rules? Do you understand me? You need guidance. So a lot of boys sent them guidance and because of their belief in Allah, there was no longer any issue, you know, normal laws of men, for example, you look at what's happening in Australia, or in any country, for that matter. Who, whoever's in difficulty with the law, there's a feeling of dissatisfaction

00:30:44--> 00:31:07

You know, there's a feeling of unfairness. So if demand in the divorce case, if the man has been done wrong by you know, the laws like this, it supports women women get this and and the woman's on the other side, you know, men are like this and neither side is happy because they don't have a higher power that they have internally submitted to

00:31:08--> 00:31:24

yet to their law, to the law that a lot of boys are sent, there was full submission from the hearts So not only did they follow the law, they self regulated with the law.

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

So for example, in our times

00:31:30--> 00:31:34

imagine you have a speeding issue I have a speeding problem when I drive.

00:31:36--> 00:31:41

So imagine I you know, mirrabooka Avenue, that's where the cameras are. So

00:31:45--> 00:31:47

true. Yeah. Twice.

00:31:50--> 00:31:50


00:31:51--> 00:32:06

if you go in, say, the spirit of the road or 70 say you're going it and you realize oh my god, I want it. I don't think anyone's gonna go to the police station says listen, Habibi, you know, I went it on the road, take a demerit have

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

anyone ever done anything you want to do?

00:32:11--> 00:32:37

But when they breach the law of God, you know, the law that this civilization had brought, they would go to the, you know, applier of the law or to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam era, soon I have made this sin. How do I get out of it? How do I atone? How do I make amends? And sometimes the consequence would have been a capital punishment.

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

So they go to school, I did this,

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

do you understand?

00:32:44--> 00:33:05

And so it gave them through the man. And through the instructions of the Quran, a law that died not only followed, but a law that they love to follow. So they became a society of rules, when everyone else was a society of running away from rules.

00:33:07--> 00:33:38

And that is what creates a successful society. One of the components. And one of the reasons we are in such a mess today is we are not a country we are we are not countries of like, you know, Muslim lands. Not countries have rules and regulations, we are countries of how to get away from rules and regulations. You ever drive in those countries, you see the traffic. It's not that let's follow the traffic rule. It's like there's a pathway, there's no car on it, I can probably drive on that.

00:33:40--> 00:33:41


00:33:42--> 00:33:43

third point,

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

the next thing that

00:33:46--> 00:33:58

a lot of people did to them, and notice, this is all changing them a lot didn't change their their environment. He didn't change any external factors. He just changed them.

00:34:00--> 00:34:15

The next thing, very important is a lot of bulldozer changed the heads their minds, the way they think their disposition, can you imagine what life was for an Arab before Islam?

00:34:16--> 00:34:22

As I read the Chronicles, essentially it comes down to this why and woman in songs.

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

Like, they drank.

00:34:28--> 00:34:51

Well, they tried to make money and then was spent on drinking. It was spent, you know, having friends around. And it was spent on songs they had, you know, song presses used to come and sing and so on. And they spent on on basic entertainment, and no big ambition in life, passing the dice waiting to die someday. You're not hoping that doesn't happen.

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

So a lot of bourassa sent Islam and through this, Allah gave them

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


00:35:03--> 00:35:17

A lot of Buddha gave them purpose. So they every moment became about achieving the purpose, which is the river of the Lord and his agenda

00:35:19--> 00:35:19


00:35:21--> 00:35:32

you would watch them wake up in the middle of the night and stand in long sessions of prayer. very productive. Why? Because I'm trying to earn the pleasure of God.

00:35:33--> 00:35:38

And don't think they used to sleep all day the next day you and I have done the 130 we don't wake me up, you know,

00:35:39--> 00:35:47

he a beautiful case of Abu Bakr so the the process of Salah Abu huraira narrates the Rasool came to the Sahaba and asked

00:35:48--> 00:35:58

us bahaman camileo Messiah Emma, who am it's true, I woke up today fasting, who is fasting today? So boubakeur said, I'm fasting.

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

So he said,

00:36:02--> 00:36:06

which one I missed you has gone to a funeral procession today.

00:36:07--> 00:36:32

Like who's helped out another human being and taken part in the funeral procession, you know, with the digging in the burying and all of that. And he said, I have a prophet of Allah. So the Rasul said, Manoj amin Kamali oma Myskina which one amidst you has gone found some poor person and given him food to eat, you know,

00:36:33--> 00:36:36

given him sada so he said I have a profit

00:36:37--> 00:36:43

and then he the pursuit said, who has visited a sick person today you know, to see how he is

00:36:44--> 00:36:49

I have today and the scholars say this was by the time of Baja

00:36:50--> 00:36:59

like it was in the morning still he had already done all these things. Do you understand what I'm trying to say? Why is he doing it?

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

In one voice place

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

all right, the first one to please Allah why

00:37:12--> 00:37:14

we're not moving on until your sites

00:37:15--> 00:37:18

so the first one to please Allah why

00:37:20--> 00:37:32

to please Allah and through that game Jana because God's because I have said I'm not moving on if I move on to Toby, you know, breaking my word and Leia lip you know, so everyone say to please Allah.

00:37:33--> 00:37:34


00:37:35--> 00:37:45

So the first one was to please a lot of bullets, and through that attain gentleman, and they spent.

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

So, you know, in Islamic history, there's, there's a scholar,

00:37:51--> 00:38:04

one of his books, one of his books, is it volumes or 800 volumes, like I get, I get that mix. And they say about him in his biography, he started to think,

00:38:06--> 00:38:22

is it better for me to have bread, chew it? And then drink water, you know, and kind of eat that way? Or should I just get it in flour form and bake it like them, and then just put it in my mouth, so I don't have to chew and stuff.

00:38:23--> 00:38:31

Because chewing to him was a waste of time. So I can just process it straight. Do you know what type of person thinks like that?

00:38:33--> 00:38:36

The one for whom every second matters.

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

So I told you, they became people of purpose driven to maximize the impact in their productivity and every second.

00:38:47--> 00:38:48


00:38:49--> 00:38:54

they used to look for opportunities and Subhanallah like and

00:38:55--> 00:39:13

if I look at any segment of the community, fascinating, so here of mine have now fun, old man, a halifa running the whole state. And there were problems in the time of the year this nation has spread from east to west.

00:39:14--> 00:39:46

You know, and you would expect that he's very busy man. I don't have time I have to fix the problems of state. You guys do worship I don't have time, but was not even a fan of the Allahu Allah is, you know, statements about him in history. He used to get a slave to hold the Quran for him the most have for him at night. He used to read the whole Quran and Salah in one in one night. And then the morning released the slave that go you're emancipated you're free.

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

Do you understand at the old age like in his 70s. So, for productivity increase the the output increased

00:40:01--> 00:40:07

And through that, you saw them conquer, you know, east and west.

00:40:09--> 00:40:13

Because everyone else was just normal human. And these were super humans.

00:40:16--> 00:40:21

So the ones for our time, let me just end here and summarize for you in Charlotte.

00:40:23--> 00:40:30

All the characteristics of success are internal, or intrinsic, they're inside of you.

00:40:31--> 00:40:33

You need to change that.

00:40:35--> 00:40:51

Success is not resources. I looked at the European country that doesn't have access to water. Like as in, it's not, it doesn't have an ocean touching it. Yet that has the biggest fleet of ships.

00:40:52--> 00:41:01

And you would think, why do you do you understand me? No ocean, no fleet? And there are nations that have oceans and no fleets?

00:41:02--> 00:41:39

Do you understand? Like if it was based on resources, and situations, the ones with the oceans should have had large, big fleets But no, this one does. You look at a country like Japan, Singapore, very rich, wealthy countries, but almost no resources. They even buy the water from another country. So success doesn't come from resources, nor does it come from climate, nor does it come from opportunities and situations and success comes from inside of you.

00:41:41--> 00:41:45

And it comes with the following. The first one Eman.

00:41:47--> 00:41:50

Work on you're a man developed that

00:41:51--> 00:41:55

a movement can do what a non believer can't ever do.

00:41:57--> 00:42:03

Like just the fact that you can fast from morning till night in itself is a miracle. And we have little kids do.

00:42:06--> 00:42:14

So increased the stronger your man becomes the more active proactive productive individual you'll become.

00:42:15--> 00:42:24

Number one, through that a man build a strong connection with a lot of boys. because trust me If Allah helps you, no one can overcome you.

00:42:25--> 00:42:29

And have a love for sakes you there is none to hold your hands after that.

00:42:31--> 00:43:14

And history is filled with examples of of great men, great men, who and who score and whose side A lot of what I saw was, you know if I start from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is one day sitting under a tree. He's hanging his sword off the tree. A man cam disbeliever took the sword put it on the neck of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and swords are like blades you know it's just the cut it will cut the jugular veins off you know, so he puts a smile on his neck as to who will save you from me today. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without thinking online. So the man's hand froze and started to shake. The sword fell. So

00:43:14--> 00:43:18

that also took the sword put it on his neck says who will save you from me today?

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

Because I have an online in you don't have an album.

00:43:24--> 00:43:45

Do you understand? So if Allah says on your code on your site, you have nothing to worry about. The time moving down from Omar Abner hapa the profit to the time of American pop up one of the you know I told you about the general that they had tied up from the Romans they brought to armor from the Persians they brought into armor

00:43:46--> 00:43:52

so they came looking for more you know where where's where's where is the belief of the Muslims

00:43:53--> 00:44:17

because he's expecting there will be a royal court. They will be Gods you know they will patch you down to make sure you don't have any weapons then there'll be a clearance then you will go use it and so many yards away from the halifa and with this finger he will motion this way. He's expecting that so he comes you know where they found Omar the head of this of the Muslim world.

00:44:18--> 00:44:24

Some of the kids in the streets of Medina they go as long as he you know he goes you can sleep in there under the tree next to the masjid.

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

So he came saw him

00:44:29--> 00:44:36

and they sit a little away so just you know the man can can sleep because you don't want to wake a person up sleeping.

00:44:37--> 00:44:41

But the man is fascinated. So under his breath he says

00:44:43--> 00:44:48

you believed in did justice and people were satisfied so you were safe so you could sleep?

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

Do you understand that? And he is happy. First of all, Allah is with me. Nothing can harm me. Secondly, I have excellent

00:45:00--> 00:45:18

Due to the justice of the Lord, everyone is happy with the justice of the Lord. No one has any intent to harm me. Do you understand that when Allah, Allah is with you, and there are people in our times who have, you know, $100,000 beds and can't sleep without sleeping,

00:45:20--> 00:45:34

because the head doesn't have the piece that it wants. So have a lot of bullets on your side, do ones have a strong relationship with a lot of bullets, unshackle yourself from the fears that shavon has shackled you with.

00:45:36--> 00:46:03

Because shaitan makes you afraid he makes you afraid of poverty. He encourages you towards indecency. All those are tricks of shaitaan. release yourself from it. Your risk is what a lot of what I saw. And lastly, follow for your body, the physical program of the soul and the physical guidance have been like for your bodies follow the rules that a lot of Blizzard has set for it.

00:46:04--> 00:46:44

And including in your interactions with one another. This is what created their society against all odds. And they extended as I say in my speeches from Granada, in Spain, on one side to New Delhi in India. On the other end, it wasn't a society like other societies that come you know jungus hahnenkamm and others camp, ruling by the sword and cutting off next and making big monuments of skulls and it was a society and organization and nation glowing with faith glowing with knowledge glowing with goodness, glowing with higher and Baraka. So my

00:46:45--> 00:47:02

place Baraka and goodness and higher in Africa in your lives and May Allah bless you and your families and Allah make your attendance a record of height for you and this life and in the next for your time and patience. I thank you my Allah guide and God Juba Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
