Mina Shame on you lungi.

00:00:10--> 00:00:12

miss me learn

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

me

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

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:34--> 00:01:00

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Hamden. UEFI anioma Who were you when you curfew maceda Europa knuckle hamdu Kamehameha v legendarily was equally Avi Masonic Subhana kolomela an Alec and Natalia and fcwc Chateau la la de cada shadow Anna Mohammedan hybrida who are so bad

00:01:04--> 00:01:27

First of all, it's a it's a good problem to have not enough space and hamdulillah May Allah bless everybody for making the time and effort to come here and some people are standing up you can stand for one hour inshallah. Sitting in the passageway. This is all part of the effort. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless the organizers and everybody participating today.

00:01:28--> 00:01:58

As is our topic from darkness tonight. Tonight I thought it very active we start with the verse of the Holy Quran in which Allah Subhana Medina says Allahu Wali you live in a manner that allows Hannah what Allah is the Protector, the helper of the believers, those who have believed you create your home men have automatic Eleanor and it is allow us have a handle with Allah who would remove those believers from darkness to light.

00:01:59--> 00:02:29

Our topic very aptly, I think it must have been in the minds of those who chose it that this verse is so suited for it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our hearts to receive the message and give us the motivation to practice inshallah my first myself first and then you for a few minutes because in reality I rather prefer to sit in the audience and listen to stealthwatch talk to me standing Yes, I'm going to just do an introduction what is going to tell us in Java

00:02:31--> 00:03:05

what I want to talk about inshallah for a few minutes is about this you create your home in a volume at 11 noon, and you will see I'm going from left to right, so from darkness to light and I want to first talk about darkness so let's let's talk about the uncomfortable things first. And then we'll talk about the positive things inshallah. But truly from my mind and my knowledge and limited intellect, there's nothing I can tell you. So I'm only going to base my discussion on what Allah subhanho wa Taala says about doula meds and what the doula met and knew in the Quran.

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

What does Allah subhanho wa Taala say?

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

We'll find that in Surah to know

00:03:16--> 00:03:22

Allah subhana wa Taala describes this situation or this condition of darkness.

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

Now we must understand we know that darkness and light are two such things that never combined. They never mix. When the one is present, the other is absent. When it's night, we wait till the sunrises in day comes when it's day wait for the sun to set and then it's night. So the one is in the change van the other

00:03:46--> 00:03:58

that's physical darkness and light. I'm sure you know we're not here to talk about that. We are here to talk about that spiritual darkness which Allah subhanho wa Taala insha Allah will save us from

00:03:59--> 00:04:31

and the spiritual life that we need for our Savior meloetta Allah guide us inshallah. So when Allah subhanho wa Taala described that spirit, spiritual darkness, allow us to handle what Allah says two things. First of all, what is the NACA for those who disbelieved and hamdulillah that's not as smella save us from me. Nonetheless understand the explanation of the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, levena cafaro Kasab BPR

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

did their deeds. I like that Miraj in the lowlands.

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

We can understand it. If you're a person that does long distance driving.

00:04:44--> 00:04:55

And you're going through a valley in that road is dipping. Especially on a warm day. You will see ahead of you some distance looks like this water on the road.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

And you drive and you never reach water. It's just a mirage.

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

selection on the street. Allow us to handle what Allah says that the deeds of the disbelievers are such like that Miraj? Yes, several.

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

The thirsty person thinks there's water I'm going to get what and keeps driving, thinking I'm going to reach the water. But what's the reality hat either?

00:05:21--> 00:05:28

When he reaches the lemmya jet who doesn't find it water? Let me adjustable Shea is actually nothing at all.

00:05:29--> 00:06:04

This one but more specific to our discussion today. Allah subhanho wa Taala further says aligner so further down in the same verse, alcohol romance. All the deeds are like vumat darknesses. Allah subhana wa Taala uses the plural word of vomit, vomit, vomit Allah Allah says, Now there was not one many perpetual one after the other. Lots of Hanover dialysis okolo met in FIBA Harry luge that is in that very dark, busy ocean.

00:06:07--> 00:06:15

Yeah, sure whom odhran meaningful to him. Oh, john menfolk, he's ahead. So imagine deep down in the ocean.

00:06:17--> 00:06:26

And above that is a wave. And above the wave is this storm clouds darkness upon darkness upon darkness.

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:06:30--> 00:06:43

either Raja Yoga when that person tries to lift his hand and see it, let me Acadia raha will not be able to see imagine yourself in such darkness for a moment.

00:06:44--> 00:06:52

way even if you put your hand in front of you with your eyes open with our ability to see I can see my hand that's how dark it is.

00:06:54--> 00:07:06

Allah subhana wa autolysis Well, mela Mia Gianni lovullo who know from Allah who may know now the famous Allah says if Allah did not decide for a particular person light and nor he will not get it.

00:07:08--> 00:07:13

Now for a moment having those. Well, one first very lengthy one in our minds.

00:07:15--> 00:07:31

I cannot talk about your life, but I can reflect on my own. There are many things in my life I did I'm not proud of. Now we think back of that moment when we did a thing or an act that we know it is in direct obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:33--> 00:07:46

Yet I know it is this obedience to Allah, but there's nothing preventing me from still committing the sin. There's nothing preventing me from being negligent as a worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:48--> 00:08:15

Why is that with a man, we recognize a law, we know that we being this obedient, yet with all of those things which should bring about a natural disposition of obedience to Allah, we still find ourselves in disobedience, neglect, without Salah, doing things we shouldn't. Why is it? It is very first that makes sense. Then we find ourselves I don't know about you, but myself

00:08:16--> 00:08:23

in those positions because of this layers and layers and layers of spiritual darkness

00:08:25--> 00:08:30

that it's preventing us from seeing the knower and the light that exists out there.

00:08:32--> 00:08:36

Again, why is that? Let's look at what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is said

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

of you been emergent.

00:08:40--> 00:08:53

The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam says this is narrated by Abu huraira rhodiola and in Malmo min is never done been a believer or the believer when he or she commits a sin.

00:08:56--> 00:09:04

Can it look Dutton so the movie has been one black dot appears on the heart of that person.

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

For interview, the person repents.

00:09:09--> 00:09:46

When there's a vine they move away from it, they abandon that type of behavior, Western for and they seek Allah's forgiveness. So Taylor follow His heart is polished and cleansed. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam in the desert, but in the sense increase the dots increase the sins increase the black marks on the heart increase. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam says that there will some will reach a point where the heart is hard. It's known as a tolerable policy, hard heartedness. We reach that point.

00:09:48--> 00:09:53

Let's think about it. Allah subhanho wa Taala and Surah Al Baqarah says that there are some people

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

so Mufasa Hello, welcome him back.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

Then you have

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

hearts become so hard for here.

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

Your observers say he

00:10:07--> 00:10:18

becomes like rock electrolysis. Oh, Shadow, Casa mela, save me and all of us. Sometimes our hearts become harder than rock.

00:10:19--> 00:10:42

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala beautifully. If we can appreciate the beauty of the Quran explains to me and you the difference between somebody whose heart is hard and the ability of a rock. Now we all can understand what's the rock? How hard is it to break it? You tried to smash it? We can't. Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:10:44--> 00:11:01

we're in nominal hedger, there are some from a man's rocks lembang at the Fed gentlemen who can help the front that rock, a stream can flow out of it. It's so hard, but water that's a liquid can flow out of it.

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

It's absorbed that understanding

00:11:06--> 00:11:16

mean that rock is very hard, but it still has a certain softness to it. That loop liquid and fluid and a stream can flow out of it.

00:11:18--> 00:11:28

When I mean Hello, dialysis, there are some rocks. Lemme Yes, just Yes. shokaku if they are split open? Yeah, who do you mean when you find water coming out?

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

Again, it's so hot. But yet it has the ability to store something soft and liquid in it.

00:11:38--> 00:11:54

More greater than that. maillet Allah grant has the ability and the strength to recognize the law. We're in Amina hair lemma. Yeah. habito mean, hace Attila. There are some rocks that will even fall because of the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

So the rock says that ability.

00:11:59--> 00:12:04

Yet Allah Allah says some people's heart even harder than that.

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

Even harder than rock.

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

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us of hearts Sharma.

00:12:15--> 00:12:23

My purpose of citing these verses is purely just for us to understand ourselves. Then why is it

00:12:25--> 00:12:43

that even though I know my act is unacceptable, and no, it is wrong, I know it is in direct obedience to Allah. I know I will suffer the consequence later. It's not becoming of a Muslim in a moment, but we still do it. But it's not you. I still do it.

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

It is this very reason

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

that our hearts are my heart has become so hard

00:12:52--> 00:13:03

that it does not impact us that even if the most beautiful verse of the Quran is mentioned, the most beautiful words of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his disgust

00:13:04--> 00:13:12

does not affect the heart. It just bounces off because it's so hard. mela subhanho wa Taala soften our hearts inshallah

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

because the bad news is go for the good music show.

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

For the next few minutes I have half an hour and 15 minutes is up so I want to spend the next few minutes talking about the north side.

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Holy Quran says

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

second find versus

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

fmln Chateau Hawa who saw the Rahul Islam,

00:13:47--> 00:14:03

that person is not that person whom Allah subhana wa Taala opened his heart, the bosom and the heart of the personal Islam. For who I know remains to be that person is upon the knower from his rock.

00:14:09--> 00:14:47

For a la casa de colo boohooman decorilla they follow lasagnas will be upon those hard hearted people who are distant and hard hearted from the remembrance of Allah. As we know Allah subhanho wa Taala says and living in urban wautoma in Nakuru boom bakerella those believers who find tranquility in the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah LS be aware, be known to you basically law he takoma in normal kulu by the remembrance of Allah hearts will become at ease and peace and tranquil.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

And therefore, let's have a handle What's our island soda, two heads is lm here and you need to let me know is it not becoming of the believers and Tasha kulu boom

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

mean victory law that they create fear in their hands through the vicar of Allah, woman as telemental health and that of the truth has been revealed. Whether you call it you know toolkit of I mean cobble and not be like those who received the book before Fatah Allah, Allah Mohammed kulu boom when time became so lengthy for them, that their hearts became hard,

00:15:25--> 00:15:30

became so used to a distant life from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:31--> 00:15:54

became comfortable with that lifestyle, that walking towards the knower and the light is doesn't seem important anymore. It's not relevant anymore, because this lifestyle of nomads and darkness is becoming enjoyable, finding comfort in it. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala guide our hearts for Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah Who knows.

00:15:56--> 00:16:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed to us accidental head is the best spoken statement. The best.

00:16:04--> 00:16:36

Kita mata shabbiha muthoni is a book that is oft repeated and reiteration more importantly for our purpose. Tucker, Shirley ruminococcus Polo Bula de Janeiro boom. But when these Verses are recited, the heart shivers of those who have some fear and recognition of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So metaline or julu, to whom wa kolomela decorilla this skin becomes soft, there has become soft for the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:16:38--> 00:16:45

Allah grant us that, that every part of our body becomes soft in recognition of the mind and the power of Allah.

00:16:46--> 00:17:16

That's worth striving for. That's worth making an effort for to develop the new or as we say, the electrolysis woman Lamia, Allahu Allahu, Allahu, Allah doesn't wish it for us, we're not going to get it. So we need to work for it. Take ourselves gradually gradually out of the darkness into the new world. And it is there waiting for us. is Allah subhanho wa Taala most beautiful. In my heart. This is probably among the most beautiful verses of the Quran.

00:17:19--> 00:17:26

And it's such that even I am a weak Arabic understanding and language. I don't think I fully appreciate it.

00:17:27--> 00:17:42

Man let Allah guide us in sha Allah. When Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the nature of Allah subhanho wa Taala What does Allah Allah say? Allah Who knows what Allah is the light of the heavens and

00:17:44--> 00:17:50

now then should be sufficient that no Allah Allah goes further describing the beauty

00:17:52--> 00:18:02

my purpose of choosing this verse is that I hope that inshallah I will and then you me first I needed the most will see the need the benefit and

00:18:03--> 00:18:25

really the the great benefit we'll achieve from the new meloetta Allah granted inshallah method and method uno de kamisha Allah Donna says, you mentioned this the knower of Allah is like you see a niche and a gap in the wall fee hum is is a lengthening it plays nicely

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

elements VA fees

00:18:29--> 00:18:40

and the Lenten is inside the glass now remember when we talk about a lengthen is that part that burns right the part that burns and the outer part is the glass.

00:18:41--> 00:18:44

So my handle metal open a hot so understand it.

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

As soon as the glass Allah tala describes this

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

as the judge you can have coke

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

its toll pearly white star.

00:19:00--> 00:19:10

You mean shujaa T Mobile rocket in zetonna it is led by Blizzard oil, olive oil lasher

00:19:12--> 00:19:37

it is not from the lighter color that grows in the eastern side or the darker color that grows in the western side but no, the best of the two, the best of the two worlds of types of our lives. This imagine it that allow us have a handle on dialysis. If only we can appreciate it Allah Allah says Yeah, can you say to her you d wallow?

00:19:39--> 00:19:40

Em says whoa now

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

that the oil when you look at the oil, it looks like it is lit already. Well, even though lamps em Setsuna no lightest attached it. It hasn't been lit yet. The oil alone shines out.

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

beautifuly did you will think it's a light shining.

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

Therefore that Allah says norrona Allah no light upon light. Yeah de la holy new Rahim Allah Sha, Allah grants the new whomsoever He wishes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala granted to me and new inshallah, my brothers and sisters,

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

truly, we find ourselves in each of us.

00:20:27--> 00:20:32

We cannot judge the one and exclude the other.

00:20:33--> 00:20:55

Even though we're talking about the young Muslims, we're not classifying the young Muslims as bad people and you in darkness only hamdulillah there are some wonderful young people that set a better example than adults. And there's some adults that find themselves in the darkness. And that's I'm glad to see young and less than young people are having to relearn.

00:20:58--> 00:21:08

The important thing is my brothers and sisters is what I'm hoping from our discussion today that none of us walk out of here, thinking,

00:21:09--> 00:21:23

Well, yeah, all of you who have this problem, go home and solve it, but rather each of us think, yeah, Allah, I have some of that in me. Now, some of us might have 5% or you feel like me 95% darkness May Allah guide us in

00:21:24--> 00:21:43

that we have some of it each of us sitting here, we have some level of disobedience to Allah, some level of neglect to the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala is no doubt. We cannot pretend that I'm perfect, I obey Allah properly, that doesn't matter to me. No, it matters to all of us.

00:21:45--> 00:22:09

And therefore May Allah guide me and you inshallah, that we make an effort to pull ourselves out of the darkness, and lead ourselves as a community as brothers and sisters towards the north in sha Allah. And as you will see in shallow status, we'll discuss some of the challenges that we face. And just as I say during the introduction, setting the scene, and I hope I did justice to it.

00:22:10--> 00:22:57

The main point is, let us understand the challenges. We don't judge each other for the challenges, rather let us understand the challenges and then make an effort to remedy it inshallah. So parents, this is your opportunity to understand the challenge of your child, and how we can help them out of those, rather than condemn Sham, scold and scream at them. Rather understand how difficult it is when somebody finds themselves in that darkness, that when they tried to put their hand in front of them, they can't see it. If we have layers and layers and layers of spiritual darkness, no matter what verse of the Quran you use, no matter what shape you bring to the house, it's not going to

00:22:57--> 00:23:42

matter. Until we break down those barriers of darkness. We have to work towards it. And it's not going to happen overnight, thinking well I've given him a two hour talk tonight. So you should be okay by tomorrow morning. That's not going to happen. It's a continuous effort for ourselves and experience for our children help each other help them. break those barriers gradually, gradually, soften the heart, soften it soften it, so the heart is ready to receive the nose. The eyes can see the light and inshallah there will be guidance for all of us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us all on the straight path. Follow hearts with the news because while the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:23:42--> 00:23:49

sallam alone majority fee will be Nura and the profits assumes dollar continues at length.

00:23:51--> 00:24:16

Asking for nor the Beloved Prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the creation of Allah felt it necessary to ask Allah for know we are so much more in need of it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us and keep us on the straight path in sha Allah subhana wa he will be handy summer hammock Allahumma Hendrick
