the mind before the final sickness of the prophets of MOBA Holly was seldom

00:01:54--> 00:02:02

as in the sickness that proved fatal, and at the end of which he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. He

00:02:04--> 00:02:09

summoned a Muslim by the name of Abu Mui, HIPAA

00:02:11--> 00:02:15

and HIPAA come to the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:02:17--> 00:02:22

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, My Lord has ordered me

00:02:25--> 00:02:46

to go and make this the fall for the people of the graveyard of Buffy as in the graveyard in Medina Sakurajima So come with me. So, Eva are the Allahu Allah says I accompany the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. As he entered the graveyard there's an agenda to recopy

00:02:47--> 00:02:52

and looking at the graves he sallallahu alayhi wasallam almost

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

in a form of lament

00:02:57--> 00:03:09

told them glad tidings to you for what you are in. As in happy days for you. You are safe under the soil of the earth.

00:03:10--> 00:03:15

challenges darknesses difficulties, hard days are common. difficult times awaiting ability will fit and

00:03:33--> 00:03:57

like the chunk of a dark night, darkness is coming. As in challenges and difficulty even advice sets ready to come and Dawn upon my oma and one will follow the other and then the Rasul Allah Allah He will seldom says shalom in an Ola the latter always worse than the former

00:03:58--> 00:04:47

challenges upcoming Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 14 and a half centuries ago. prophesized difficulties are common. And the difficulties that are so talked about for you isn't difficulties of wealth. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says man in foreclosure, it isn't poverty that I fear for you. It isn't at the code of life and living that I fear for you. The difficulty that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the challenges that he worries about for us is difficulty of piety and challenges facing our a man and darkness is engulfing our righteousness. Dada sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, you may know while you sleep, you will sleep at night believing you will wake

00:04:47--> 00:04:55

up a disbeliever and you will wake up a disbeliever and by the time nightfall come, you will wake up a believer by the time might come you would have been

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

Should I start again.

00:05:07--> 00:05:14

So difficulties are coming. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, and the hadith of them easy.

00:05:15--> 00:05:32

Yet the island Nazism and on a time will don't upon my nation, or the popular fee either deed, with the one holding on to his religion colocar before either the jammer will be like the one holding on to burning coal,

00:05:33--> 00:06:09

difficulties, Muslims, and the challenges that face our youth today. And I say this time and time again, never before. Never before and the annals of human history has challenges so daunting ever face a generation, so pervasive, so all encompassing, so pungent, and at the same time, as the challenges are huge. Never before in the annals of human history has man been so ill equipped to meet those challenges.

00:06:11--> 00:06:27

I just want to take you briefly at the life of an ordinary youngster here, or an ordinary human in this time, and in this day, and in this age, and contrast to the right of the righteous that preceded us, the prophets,

00:06:28--> 00:07:19

time and the time of the seller. And then compare this with our lives today. A young person today wakes up on an alarm bill on his mobile phone. And the times that past we used to wake up to Amazon. Today, you wake up to the clip of Britney, or to the song of someone else, and already as your innocent little eyes open already the seeds of evil and vices planted in the head. Then you go to your wardrobe to dress, there was a time you used to dress for modesty. There was a time you used to think what will be the most righteous clothing to wear. Today, the youngster stands young and old to see what is the loudest garbage I could wear? What is the one that will gain the most attention what

00:07:19--> 00:07:46

will make me stand out and up and above and beyond everyone else, what will be attractive, what will be alluring, what will show at the same time pretended doesn't show this is just at your clothing and inside your wardrobe. You leave the boat, you leave the house, you climb a bus, you take a car, you take a cab, you catch a train, and you don't have to be a genius to look around and see that the challenges are daunting around you.

00:07:48--> 00:07:52

All other youths have come from their houses with the same mentality

00:07:54--> 00:07:58

appearences clothing which leaves little to the imagination.

00:07:59--> 00:08:11

And a young man and a young woman is sitting in this time, a conflict of right and wrong inside the heart when there shouldn't have ever been a conflict in the first time in a righteous society.

00:08:12--> 00:08:59

And as he drives the billboards, one after the other advertising, drinking, advertising casinos, advertising parties, advertising clubs, all this the youngster goes through and he reaches work and if it doesn't and Muslim institution, the Fridays are stubby and Barton and BIA days. So at this point and then we can come visit here come to this party come to this club. And from all this from all these influences and all this bombardment and all this media and everything the youngster imagine he is righteous and he runs away and it comes to the safety of the four walls of his house and he sits he locks the doors he lives down and we'll put these parks himself on the couch and then

00:08:59--> 00:09:28

they in front of him on a pedestal of honor exalted and respected is the nice TV box which he sits in front of for hours on end. My students say I arrive home sweetheart, what do you do? I sit there watching TV hollows. Okay, how long until Margaret comes as Alhamdulillah Namah Madrid comes you will go to pray what after then I'll sit back and watch again. Elijah comes then what after? This is your don't think it isn't jus because it is every one of you.

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

And they sit there in every house. You see it. He's sitting there waiting for the Master shavon to give them instructions dressed like this walk like this talk like this shake like this, do this, go to this party, go to this club. So call us after 1030 he's tired, but burnt out. He's going to go to his bedroom, that he has a little laptop where she gets things in there that he couldn't get on TV and then on the bed as he's sleeping. He's got these little more

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

While for now let's make contact with the ones that couldn't make contact with

00:10:04--> 00:10:14

I say it and say it again Never before and the annals of human history was sin so intrusive as sin is so intrusive today

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

there is no safety from it

00:10:19--> 00:10:32

darlin and desire hit the ducky and then at the right and the wrong everyone is so engrossed in it a llama Rahim Allah be except for the one that a lot of Blizzard chooses to favor and save.

00:10:34--> 00:10:40

So with these difficulties, and I don't want to paint a bleak picture, you think of stairs, I didn't come here to get depressed. But

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

I will give hope and Charlotte that

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

in this age of darkness,

00:10:58--> 00:11:09

where role models become things like Paris Hilton and role models are things like Beckham and Subhan Allah the greatest achievements is subpanel harlot he bent the ball congratulations.

00:11:16--> 00:11:30

And you leave the role models supanova the profit is there the US however the the Great's of human civilization are there. And our youngsters are chasing these role models on TV and on media. So more than anything,

00:11:31--> 00:11:39

the Muslim needs today, role models that he could look up to that she could look up to sign the moments available to me, and

00:11:41--> 00:12:06

I don't know how long is available to me. But I will just go over a few instances in a few incidences through the history of Islam and the history of the righteous that that might become a cause of aspiration and inspiration and motivation for you and for myself. And as the chef said, and Allah honor Him and protect him and guide him and guide him and reward him first for myself then for you inshallah, to Allah.

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

Many years ago,

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

a young child woke up from a deep sleep

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

and he can

00:12:16--> 00:12:22

to his wise benevolent kind profit of a father.

00:12:23--> 00:12:27

And he says, Yeah, Betty for my father,

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

the father in Neeraj a to I saw a dream.

00:12:34--> 00:12:57

I had a shot I told Kevin 11 stars 11 celestial bodies was shumsa Welcome model and the sun and the moon are a to home Lee Sajid in, I saw them all the 11 planet trees or stars, the sun and the moon, all making such that to me.

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

And there was a time the young used to dream big.

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

I don't want to tell you what the young dream today.

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

So he said

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

and straight away the paternal protective instincts of a father come in. He says the airborne a lotta Soto Yaga Allah, aquatic, darling son, don't mention this dream to your brothers, for your key do like a Qaeda or they will hatch up a plot for you. They'll design a plan against you. They will concoct a vise for you in a fun little incentive to go moving shavon is an evident enemy of humankind.

00:13:47--> 00:14:12

And because of this incidence and the natural angelic nature of this child, the use of Allah His solemn, his father became very protective of him and the rest of the brothers soldiers that the Father seems to give a special attention to use. So they said, If you sue for who had bought a law, I mean no one

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

use of in his brother or more dear to our father than us. And we are good lot. So then the Makarov, shavon comes, let's plan something for him. So they said let's kill him. And then they said, No, let's not kill him. We'll put them in a well, a caravan will come and carry him off to another land. So they plan this and they took Yusuf Ali, his solemn, the darling son of the prophet to be and they took him and they placed him in the darkness of a world.

00:14:45--> 00:14:49

Sometime later, a caravan of travelers can

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

they put the water bucket down and they picked it up? And they said yeah, Boucher has a hold on. Oh, glad tidings a free slave.

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

Servant we have found inside the well where you get the water we got the slave. So then they take him and his brothers see and they sell the young use of to this caravan was shadow will be feminine box in da hemara Duda. They sold him for a few coins and young use of

00:15:25--> 00:15:46

the noble use of the soon to be profit use of the son of the noble prophet Yaqoob, the grandson of the noble prophet is half the great grandson of the father of Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam is tied up in a caravan and taken to the land of the pharaohs to be sold as a slave.

00:15:47--> 00:16:00

And then in Egypt, he is paraded in the slave market, and they bid for him and one of the noble families buy him with the intention that he will serve us or we will adopt him as a son.

00:16:02--> 00:16:24

So use of Allah His Salaam, this darling son of Yaqoob, grows up in the land of Egypt. And there are similarities in the story in your life. And we will draw the comparison of Allah give Simon respond. So use of alayhis salaam, grows up in a land alien to his own.

00:16:26--> 00:16:31

Not the country of his birth, as it isn't the country of your birth here for many of you.

00:16:33--> 00:16:49

And in a country, away from the structure of the family. There he had his father, and then he had his uncles and then he had his arms. And then he had the whole society and community he knew he had his alone.

00:16:50--> 00:17:08

And he grows up Subhan Allah to add to his challenges, dazzling young man, like beauty, mind boggling, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, of all beauty half of it was given to us.

00:17:09--> 00:17:20

And you want to see beauty Look at this, there is a room full of ladies sitting. And the mistress has given each one an apple and a knife to cut.

00:17:21--> 00:17:38

So then she says use of enter. So the young man enters, and the eyes of the room turn on him. And the Quran describes it. Phelim aina who kupatana who woke up at

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

a hush,

00:17:41--> 00:18:09

hush, early lahemaa Bashar and they looking at him or be glued to him hypnotized by his beauty, so much so that they're cutting the apple colors, the apple finished, they reach their hand cutting, and they can't feel it because they're mesmerized by the beauty of use of Allah His setup. So and beauty is a time's a curse, because it's a challenge, which means people want and want this holiday.

00:18:11--> 00:18:23

So this is his second challenge, dazzling beauty, which means everyone wants an association with him. And on top of this,

00:18:25--> 00:18:36

and the first one, we said he's in a foreign land. And the second one, he is away from family. You know, you see people, they're very good here.

00:18:37--> 00:18:52

And especially from the other countries Middle East, and then beautiful, Mashallah. And then they go on a holiday overseas to my Malaysia or Thailand or somewhere like that, then you see the devil come out of him.

00:18:54--> 00:19:06

Things that you would never do at home he ends up doing here. When you see a damage, every capacity in good or bad, some of them will never wash the dishes at home. He's here as a student, he'll end up washing dishes.

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

So they'll do things

00:19:10--> 00:19:15

as a traveler that they don't do things as a citizen or as a normal person existing in the normal place.

00:19:16--> 00:19:31

So Yusuf Ali Hassan is away from his home, away from family away from the eyes of his community, and at the same time, beauty like that. And then he is a slave.

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

Slavery breaks your self respect in your self worth. Every time the Master says Oh, go do that. Any self respect you have breaks. Every time you look at your clothing and look at the Masters clothing, you can't help but feel damaged inside. Anytime you sleep there next to the holsters and stuff and he's sleeping in the mansion. It reinforces regularly that you are dirt I A must

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

So use of Allah His Salaam was a slave

00:20:05--> 00:20:18

in this house, which means his self respect and self worth should have been damaged. I'm not saying it is, I'm saying and the normal psychology of men that should it was a challenge.

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

Then he is young.

00:20:23--> 00:20:30

And young, the Arab say, the youth is the vessel of desires.

00:20:32--> 00:20:51

The hormones are going wild, little, you know, the desire to experience and experiment and at the same time, the push to go do all this young man away from family know social status and honor to hold himself up to but that doesn't fit me he's a slave.

00:20:52--> 00:21:04

And he is young. And then the scholars say he didn't have a hot alternative either. There wasn't a wife that he could go to and say hello, I'll be with you now. Nothing.

00:21:05--> 00:21:32

And all these challenges facing him. And then Subhan Allah, look at this challenge in his own home. The mistress that has bought him, seeing him grow to this young man falls for him. And then the Quran says, Walker law cotton above wakad Hey, Palak. So she brings him to a room, closes the doors and says At your service, you're yours.

00:21:34--> 00:21:46

And use of alayhis salam and look at the background. I have discussed five or six points, things you wouldn't ask impossible challenges. Halas Baba has nothing to do something?

00:21:48--> 00:21:49

No, not like.

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

But

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

so

00:21:57--> 00:22:05

he said and the difficulty he's a slave. He's a servant. He is alone. He is young, he is handsome, he is desired he is wanted.

00:22:07--> 00:22:29

And he says, Allah, Allah forbid, Allah forbid, this isn't for me. And he rushed to the door and the locks fell open. Some of them say a miracle of his prophethood that it was locked but the lock fell and use of Allah His salon rushed out and she grabs him from the color and he pulls in a tears from the back.

00:22:30--> 00:22:36

And I want to stop here at this instance. So you can see the challenges of use of Allah His salon

00:22:39--> 00:22:50

for a lady of that time, and then any time All right, just Lady of high standing and high honor as in she is the wife of the Aziz, the nobles of Egypt.

00:22:51--> 00:23:03

for her to come to the aggressive state where she grabs him. It means the scholars say that she's already tried the natural progression, but none of it has worked on him.

00:23:04--> 00:23:16

She's already done the smile. He's already done the giggle. She's already battered her eyelids. She's already she's already she's done everything. And Yusuf Ali Salaam, his head is down.

00:23:17--> 00:23:34

So when all the files in it isn't instantaneous, it isn't like Saturday and then Sunday. This is months on end in use of alehissalaam. Every day the store he sees every day this invitation he gets every day this temptation he finds

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

but use of alayhis salam

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

oversteps.

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

And comes out to in pristine from it.

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

And I look around here

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

and Subhana Allah, there's a lot of young men and a lot of young ladies are not law protect you all they are.

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

And the challenges you face are not at the level of use of but they're similar.

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

And I want to tell you, that

00:24:11--> 00:24:15

Yusuf Ali Salaam could do it and you can do

00:24:17--> 00:24:21

and if you give up around for the sake of Allah Majeed,

00:24:22--> 00:24:37

he was substituted with things you didn't imagine. So the scholars say, use of alayhis salam gave up a hot arm. So instead of lot of blades, I gave him the dominion of Egypt.

00:24:38--> 00:24:45

And this is the son of the Cloud Shell Majeed. They say Solomon alehissalaam went to inspect his horses, war horses

00:24:47--> 00:24:54

and looking and animals are beautiful creatures, you know the majestic holes, and there's a loving man for

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

horses. So admiring them he stayed with them until

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

Aster became delayed and when he came back after was almost gone so he felt very bad. And he gave the whole whole system sada. So in return a lot of bullets that gave him the wind to come on.

00:25:16--> 00:25:27

So that when you give something up for a lot of Buddha, he substitutes for better, the US have gave up their homes and Makkah. So Allah gave a mastery of the world instead.

00:25:28--> 00:25:30

So anytime you substitute

00:25:31--> 00:25:43

around for our right, give up a haram for the larochelle Majeed, Allah will substituted This is the son of a lot of Buddhism in the past and in the present and in the future.

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

So use the valley his salon became this.

00:25:49--> 00:26:12

And a lot of boys honored him with Prophethood and honored him with status in this life and in the next. And there are a lot of similarities between us and Yusuf Ali Salim. We are in a land different from the lens of our forefathers. As such, we don't bring the depth of culture that we had back there and we assimilate into a new one here.

00:26:13--> 00:26:39

And at the same time, there is the issue of youth and the availability and the options and soul availability of the options. And, and these times and these challenges, listen carefully young Muslim and old Muslim, male Muslim and female Muslim. In the times of difficulty, you can stand firm your reward isn't the same as the person who stands firm in the time of ease.

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

You cannot compare the person who holds his foot in difficulty with the person who's standing there with his father how when you have nothing is much more difficult than sadaqa when you have a lot, if you have $1,000, you give $1 it is different to when you have only $1 and you give the dollar.

00:27:02--> 00:27:21

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew your situation and this is what he says and listen to the audio. In the meanwhile, raw ikoma Yama sobre Muslims, after you as an after the companions will come the days of patience, as in the days of difficulty,

00:27:22--> 00:27:55

little motor mistake he has been Bhima and tamale, a Durham scene, and for the person who in that time, and that age of difficulty, and in that age of hardship, and in that age of challenges in in that age of darkness, whoever in that time holds on to what you're holding on to as in the way of the Quran and the manager of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as in the Quran and the Sunnah before me, Salah Alma, whoever holds on to this,

00:27:57--> 00:28:20

to this rope of righteousness. In this time of darkness, there are so says, Father who are job hunting, he will get the reward of 50 so the US have said humps in min min home 50 of hustle 50 of them jasola so the Prophet says, bloomin comb, no 50 of my companions.

00:28:21--> 00:28:24

Do you see, the reward is huge.

00:28:25--> 00:28:37

And the challenge and each and every one, as my dear brother said, has a lion roaring inside your majestic by nature, if you weren't, you wouldn't have been Muslims.

00:28:39--> 00:28:51

You each one of you have the capacity to climb over these challenges. And I want to just mention because you will say your status, this was a prophet how Where are we from a prophet so let's go beneath the prophets of Allah him of

00:28:52--> 00:29:34

sleep, am I share the story regularly and every time I share it, it seems to tug at the strings of the heart all over again. So I will share it once again in sha Allah Allah, they say there was a young man and the time of modafinil, hopper of the Allahu Akbar and a righteous man a decent man a good man a God fearing man, and and this narration is an epic appeal. So, if nicotine is pretty specific with what the how the features is, although and the understanding I find the difficulty with the Manage, but alcohol so the so this young man used to regularly come to the masjid and go to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam all his thoughts were there. And then at night

00:29:34--> 00:30:00

he used to sit back and attend the halaqa of the dogs of amagno capo de la Han. And when he used to finish he used to go down the road to the house of his father and meet the elderly man. And coincidentally, there was a house from the masjid to his house, a house of a young girl, the young lady there and the young lady had an affection towards him had an inclination towards him. So every time he used to go at night she used to come out of the

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

A house with some excuse or another unit checking the rubbish out. I'm just standing for fresh air. And this was

00:30:07--> 00:30:24

and

00:30:27--> 00:30:32

he fell victim to the whims of shavon. So she said My house is here.

00:30:33--> 00:30:34

So he

00:30:35--> 00:30:41

followed her lead and was going towards a house. And as he walks towards the house,

00:30:42--> 00:30:51

a verse crosses goes through his mind, and he recites it and he says, in levena dapo

00:30:52--> 00:31:25

So as he utters the word, he remembers a lot of bullets, and thinking, what was I about to do? He finds out of the fear of a lot of bullets in front of the door of this lady.

00:31:26--> 00:32:04

And imagine and those days what a calamity the guys find that outside your house. And so the people can and they trying to revive him and resuscitate him and they took him to the house of the Father. And in the state of consciousness and unconsciousness, he keeps on repeating in living in a telco. If somebody from inertia you find internet guru for either home mobile, Simone, those who are conscious when an affliction of shavonne touches them, they remember Allah and Allah lets them see. So he gains consciousness. And his dad tells him, he goes, son,

And this time uttering it in a conscious state, out of the fear of his load, he died.

00:32:38--> 00:32:49

He died. So they wash them and confront him and buried him and the middle of the night. And in fact, your time they can download a copy of the Allahu Allah and Chef the rewired this evening.

00:32:51--> 00:32:52

So,

00:32:53--> 00:32:54

the

00:32:56--> 00:32:56

they came to

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

the lavon. And

00:33:00--> 00:33:47

they told him last night, I young men died out of the fear of Allah. So almost said, I must go see his grave. So he came to the grave of the young lad. And that's how I was standing in he sits stands on the grave. And then he says, Yeah, hold on, young lad. A lot of bluster says, well, in Madhava matamata Biggie, Jonathan, for the one who fears the status of his load, Allah will give them a dual paradise twine paradise double paradise. And they say, there were people standing around, and a voice comes from the grave for a jab alfetta mindef a little tougher call. Anyhow, robbia omarama retain Omar, Allah has already given me this paradise twice. You're on the other side, you can see

00:33:47--> 00:33:49

Allah already gave it to me twice.

00:33:51--> 00:34:18

So at the time of difficulty, few people prove their worth and their valor and the color and the stamina and the backbone, and the rewards are huge. And there are other stories, and it's the US hub. And then I miss the Targaryen and Avatar behind but my time is coming to an end. I will just mention one other story just to highlight the nature of a Muslim.

00:34:20--> 00:34:59

And we have and we should have what is considered an indomitable spirit, like a spirit that no one can override, that doesn't matter what the difficulty your head will come up again, a Muslim must be able to face whatever challenges that comes, we will face it head on that as big as it might be. And in that regard, I want to mention a story although it's a bit abstract, but so that we can go out of here in sha Allah motivated with the firm belief that whatever you throw at us will face it and whatever the challenge and whatever the mountain will climb over it and we will go back towards this and see we will go back to the path of the Quran and the Sunnah.

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

Now, we will go back to what our Lord said and what our profits on the Long Island was seldom victory. And the story happened and the time

00:35:09--> 00:35:16

person known as El Arsalan, he was one of the generals of the Muslim army towards the areas of corizon.

00:35:17--> 00:35:24

And he was in charge of 15,000 soldiers. And he was coming from a campaign. And as his marching,

00:35:25--> 00:35:34

arrived, a fast rider comes and approaches him. And they asked, What is the move? So they said, That's him. elbasan. So he came to him.

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

And he said,

00:35:37--> 00:35:47

whispered in the in the ears of Alibaba, and they say, as he whispered, his face changed like this, the face of Alibaba salon changed.

00:35:48--> 00:36:18

And then he ordered that can't be said, so the Army's set up camp. And then he went inside his tent. And he put on his garb, and he put the perfume that you perfume, the dead with handled. And then he ordered for an assembly. So the Muslim army gathered in front of him, and he stood up to speak. And he said, the Romans have amassed 300,000 soldiers against Jews.

00:36:19--> 00:36:47

And they will go and plunder and rape and destroy the Muslim land. And the only thing that will stand before that between them and the Muslims is us. And then he says, and 15,000 against 300,000 is unimaginable. So he says, Allium Islam of the hopper. Today, the Islam is in danger. Well, Muslim Muna, Catholic and the Muslims likewise. And then he says, well, Islam,

00:36:48--> 00:37:34

Islam, or the Islam, and then looking at his audience, he says, an attacker found here I have put on the clothes of this, I have put on my shroud, I have put on the perfume of the foreman on them in common agenda, whoever from you wishes to attain paradise Wallabies to cannabis, then dress even as I have dressed, so they said Allahu Akbar, they rent their tents, they put on the shrouds, that we are wearing the cuff and we will fight that Allah gives victory or Allah gives death and that spirit and indomitable spirit, and that Islamic spirit and that spirit to face challenges they set out to face this 300,000 army of the Romans and the soldiers began to clench and the spears began to fly

00:37:34--> 00:37:51

and subpanel Harley come in fear can call the guillotine, whatever spirit and get the autumn Bismillah how often at times, does a small army overcome a huge army when a lot of Blizzard permits and the 300,000 turn their backs and start to run? And Alba salon started to cry.

00:37:52--> 00:38:09

So that was the challenge for our salon to face. This is mine and your challenge. So he faced that diligently, honorably strongly. Let's face our challenge. honorably strongly, I will give certain suggestions or stiffness in when going follows.

00:38:13--> 00:38:19

I will give certain suggestions in sha Allah lays them in Babel earlier we're lacking in Babel Musalia.

00:38:20--> 00:38:25

But listen carefully in my garden garden, sha Allah Allah.

00:38:26--> 00:38:43

The first step in overcoming these challenges is to have a lot of blood in the heart. The chef has spoke extensively on it and Allah bless him, so that your heart is connected to a lot of blood that the luck of your heart has a lot of blood. So that's what you need to do.

00:38:44--> 00:39:22

And love is a strange thing. You know, the Arabs went and classified it. They said, the first part of love is an attraction. You know, you're in a roomful of people, one or two people stick out everyone else goes into backdrop. It's an attraction. And then you start thinking about that person. You have in your head conversations with that person. You romanticize you, you make it bigger than life, that attraction changes into a deeper attraction and then it moves towards love. And then you keep on thinking and you know, you and that happens. And you see the youngster subpanel Haleakala protect one and all

00:39:23--> 00:39:26

until it becomes an obsession.

00:39:27--> 00:39:59

Where what that person's happiness and that is your obsession. And above obsession comes through the servitude and the level of love required from us is the level the highest level of kindness apana will levena M and I should balilla those who believe the great the slough is a lot of Bahasa so the question is how do you love the same way as you love a human remember a lot. Remember, a lot of boys are regularly with

Karina law Kathy along with the carrot, and those who remember Allah in abundance, yeah you heard that in

00:40:08--> 00:40:50

the Quran kathira or you who believe remember Allah in abundance so far as Allah is in your tongue so far as your mouth is repeating Subhana line of hamdulillah and Allahu Akbar, so far as urine, the memory of a lot of blood shayateen and his forces will stay away from you and remember a lot of Buddhism and all the favors he has done to you what law he I give you this water bottle and kindness and in humility you say Subhana Allah with the nice man gave me a water bottle so kind Mashallah Allah bless those that someone says something Oh, no, he gave me a water bottle is a really good man. You know? So then you think what has a lot of Blaser done for you? You wake up in the morning,

00:40:50--> 00:41:40

you see, you breathe, that air of law gave you that lungs to breathe with Allah gave you and so the ability to separate you know make oxygen and carbon Allah gave you you got to eat Allah gave you you digested Allah gave you He's so bountiful on you, how can you not but love a lot of Buddhism? So remember the favors of Allah upon you were on Mad Money I met Europe because I had this and of the bounties of a lot of Buddha's talk. Say Allah gave me this Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah he levy abominable sakana? How can it not increase love in your heart glory, Praise be to Allah who gave me drink and gave me food and increase this liquor and this fond memory until Allah bless

00:41:42--> 00:41:51

your heart becomes for a lot of Buddhism in the sense that your love of your heart becomes a lot of Buddhism, and then you live afraid of disappointing.

00:41:54--> 00:42:17

Not just that. But my Lord will be unhappy if I do this. My Lord will be upset if I do this. But I don't want to break the law of my Lord. But what will my Lord say? How will I look at a lot of blazer? What would I say to a lot of blazer? What would I say to the one I love that once that becomes a reality, then you have succeeded.

00:42:18--> 00:42:19

Second step

is associate with the righteous.

00:42:26--> 00:42:29

Make your friends, the more select individuals.

00:42:31--> 00:42:33

Friends will take you to hell.

00:42:35--> 00:42:42

I say this to my students. Imagine five friends and you five of them smoke.

00:42:43--> 00:42:47

Just smoke in your city nos, the philosophy

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

Why should I smoke?

00:42:50--> 00:42:54

One week passes they check the cigarette butt and you're looking you know.

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

And you take it and you do a little?

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

Yeah, cause friends effect you. Give it a few more weeks you're a full smoker. Your friends play basketball you've never touched bounced the ball in your life. You'd say give me that thing and you do that awkward little bounce. Yeah, but your friends affect you.

00:43:16--> 00:43:18

And if they change to soccer, you'll do the same.

00:43:23--> 00:43:27

So friends affect you. And the Quran says the same.

00:43:30--> 00:43:34

That the day the volume will bite his hand.

00:43:37--> 00:43:44

Maja de la toma Rasulullah sebelum. Yeah, yeah, we let her lay

00:43:45--> 00:44:01

down and Halina. Did you see the sinner? You know the bite of regrets? You see some people angry? Yeah, it's that bite like Aha. Or I wish I had followed the path of the Prophet. I wish I hadn't taken you as a friend.

00:44:02--> 00:44:04

So bad friends take you to hell.

00:44:05--> 00:44:16

And good friends, the friends for Allah and the friends for Dean take you to Jenna Carlos de la Holly wasallam Wolfie Hudson cutscene Allah Saleh Ali wasallam

The law of Buddha says in a demo, see we will give them stages and pulp lots of light, carpets and markers will envy them.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

So choose your friends carefully.

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

If they're bad and you can't influence them call us they're like Angus, cut them loose move on.

00:45:07--> 00:45:09

00:45:11--> 00:45:26

So remember, number one love on law number two associate with the righteous. And for the parents one and all I say this to you, Lila for the sake of Allah, put your children and Muslim institutions

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

don't do this gamble.

00:45:30--> 00:45:37

Gambling with everything is good. Don't gamble with a child. And don't tell me your stats. The schools have problems I know I'm in it.

00:45:40--> 00:45:47

Of course it has problems. But it is a million times better than an identity alternative.

00:45:48--> 00:45:57

where a child goes in trying to change his food is different disclosing is different. I graduated from a Catholic college.

00:45:58--> 00:46:03

We used to go pray in a little room the whole of the school used to be like this behind the room.

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

At the effect

00:46:08--> 00:46:09

Don't do that to a child.

00:46:10--> 00:46:14

They can grow free, they can grow strong and grow while
