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

started at Western,

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

my dear brothers, sisters, elders and young you.

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

I'm very excited to see here in the brain surgery.

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

you're attending a program at iccp management to do more programs like this, so that all of us can

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

be one that has the to sign up at the sheet

00:00:55--> 00:00:58

there at the front door.

00:01:01--> 00:01:10

Now I will be introducing Dr. Mohamed Hassan. He is currently the National Director of Outreach and development of HIV USA

00:01:14--> 00:01:31

professor at University, online, online Islamic University. He holds a bachelor's degree in management from Cairo University, Masters of Business Administration from the University of Hawaii

00:01:32--> 00:02:04

Dr. Huston is a researcher and the author of radical interpretation of history. Dr. Hassan served as a board member for many Islamic organizations. Currently, he is on the executive board for North American evaluation. And

00:02:06--> 00:02:16

he in the lecture for various local and national Islamic organizations as charged, he has a heart in order in certainly

00:02:17--> 00:02:43

over the last seven years to county, state, and federal prisons, Dr. Hudson has been active, actively pursuing Islamic philanthropy for the past 13 years in the United States, participating and attending in numerous conferences and seminars, domestically and nationally. Now I invite Dr. Muhammad Hassan to take away

00:03:20--> 00:03:27

them at a VA said at large average Ramana has a full time.

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

job he now

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

stand among the board members of the spiritual dimension serravalle.

00:03:42--> 00:04:05

First of all the lights and the management what allows us to have this program here and with our body ignorantly just come straight to this program. And the first thing that I want to start with my team by thanking them really across the many mountains of the mini donkeys on the colossal hammer guys who stole from us as a man.

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

In Korea, he recited beautiful

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

culture with joy.

00:04:17--> 00:04:34

That's something that we're going to face. Every one of us go to face some kind of hardship. And this hardship might be financial hardship, it might be society might be children hardship.

00:04:36--> 00:04:54

But the way is, how are we going to react to this hardship? Are we going to be an island in good times and be patient when we go through hard time, or what we're going to see what we're getting by the grammar system slash

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

dictionary is not building the session. It kind of needs to

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

The book

00:05:02--> 00:05:10

ignorantly is in the business of getting closer to the last panel through helping those who are in need.

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

That the highest level

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

after being in,

00:05:19--> 00:05:25

is to be of service to the creation of Allah, Allah. This is the word of

00:05:28--> 00:05:43

God, we have meaning organization can take a longer support overseas. But it never leaves work. The word works only inside the United States, we have many programs, all of them geared to those who are in need, the weak, the poor,

00:05:45--> 00:06:00

the poor and the weak. We are discovered the guy who is asked to change the clothes of the Kaaba, he said, the tour and the week being when they are being filmed and closed better than better

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

than changing the camera.

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

Even though when our graphic designer when he was leaving the studio, when he was in his bedroom, gliding, and everyone from all over the world came to see him, he said, I don't want to

00:06:20--> 00:06:29

bring the the poor people bring me the weak, because those are the most beloved people to us. And when I read about them, when I got

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

so my role system is that

00:06:35--> 00:06:40

what we are trying to say that relief is helping those who are in need,

00:06:41--> 00:07:03

or leave, they have more than 30 programs to them to help those who are in need. Inside the United States. We have many programs, like went live yesterday, when was the last time you read hunger, it happened to us, maybe you're traveling, maybe you're away from your home, maybe you have no money in your pocket.

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

How did feel when you feel hungry?

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

When was the last time you have seen someone sleeping in her car.

00:07:17--> 00:07:24

With a brother and sister in his lab, it's very important for you to know that those people are going through a rough time.

00:07:25--> 00:07:36

Add as I was testing goes people's hardship of lost power and assisting others with their wins with the money and redemption. As

00:07:38--> 00:07:45

whoever wakes up in the morning, feeling secure has food for just one day.

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

He had a

00:07:48--> 00:07:53

look at our refrigerators. Look at how we sleep every night.

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

But let me share with you this when you really when

00:07:59--> 00:08:02

you get when you go and you fast.

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

And you will get that

00:08:07--> 00:08:23

when in the middle of the night, one of those sisters who occupied one portion of their home and one of them is here in the Bay in Chicago when one of the sister wake up in the middle of the night and raise her hand

00:08:24--> 00:08:25

to have for you.

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

For those who are weak for those who need

00:08:36--> 00:08:50

to fundraise tonight, but I'm talking to your house, think about see what else can I do to open your heart with feeling that the heat that they are going through and

00:08:52--> 00:09:00

we have two cars in the back to one of our US interview which covered that whatever was

00:09:01--> 00:09:08

just to be just do that in Charlevoix, make it for the last panel, make it as the last panel

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

we accept from you, because

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

that is not only

00:09:15--> 00:09:23

of the pre reading, and that goes into the agenda, which is more than that.

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

He saw a man traveling in paradise

00:09:30--> 00:09:31


00:09:33--> 00:09:41

will of course power. Granted, of course, did you interrupt the agenda because she gave a sip of water to above

00:09:42--> 00:09:46

what that tell you about that? This lady

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

understood what is the narrow focus. She said that as long as I was

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

waiting me when I was thirsty, it's my job to provide to others.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Do you need to

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

make a decision like that?

00:10:07--> 00:10:12

whatever you can afford to buy whatever you will be able to give each hour.

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

an hour listen to our keynote speaker Emanuel Samson

00:10:55--> 00:10:55


00:10:58--> 00:10:59

the main topic of

00:11:01--> 00:11:02


00:11:08--> 00:11:18

Tonight the main topic of our program is the complete believer intellect, spirit and action by Scott the sanctuary. He is the founder of chronic

00:11:20--> 00:11:29

pain, chronic illiteracy AQL. an institute focused on educating communities on how to meet embrace and understand that

00:11:30--> 00:12:07

he has taught students worldwide through traveling seminars, long term studies, and online instructions. He graduated from the private Academy in Lahore buxom, with a bachelor's degree in Arabic grammar, and a minor in Arabic literature. His studies include studying personally with Dr. Lachman for one year, studying Sri Lanka and earning the data in Egypt in the US injury citation. Before I get the mic to the sanctuary, I'd like to, again remind people to sign up, sign up on the front

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

door over there.

00:12:11--> 00:12:18

And that will be snacks after the lecture downstairs in the basement. Now I invite Sharif to take the mic

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

hamdulillah Alhamdulillah

00:13:11--> 00:13:14

wa Salatu was salam wa Sunni.

00:13:15--> 00:13:20

While he was lucky enough to be on the block, you need been

00:13:23--> 00:13:24


00:13:25--> 00:13:26


00:13:27--> 00:13:28


00:13:35--> 00:13:35


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

Blah, blah.

00:13:42--> 00:14:15

If I am correct, we have approximately 22, solid minutes, 30 minutes, but we'll be salon, you will all take six minutes to decide whether you believe me, not what I'm saying. But will you trust the words that I'm presenting to you, I could tell you lies in the law. But in the first six minutes, you're going to say you must be selling something or we will accept what I'm saying. So in this short few moments that we do have, I request from you for things I travel,

00:14:16--> 00:14:20

travel, as well, approximately two to three hours

00:14:23--> 00:14:27

to an hour. In Chicago, we would say three.

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

So I request from you for eight minutes. So it's 37 now, eight minutes is too much Chicago, four minutes, I would like you to sit in the physical posture of dignity. If I asked you to sit in a posture of dignity and you were showing me in nonverbal communication, not be sick with integrity brother or sit up No. I am asking you if Allah subhanho wa Taala only if if all

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

I could see you in his house. And I said, so what do you do? Where's my house? My love. When you came to my house? How did you sit? Did you find the comfortable part that aren't comfortable? And some of us on the day of judgment will say, Yama, I didn't really know if you could see me.

00:15:19--> 00:16:02

Say, did not someone come and tell you that these things would happen? And then you would meet me and don't you remember these things. So again, I asked you to assume a posture of integrity for four minutes, I begin now, the posture of integrity of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very clear, think about it. And let's move through this together. If you can tell me what you know, then I won't repeat something you know already. So today's topic is called the complete believer, all of you will not have master memories, and only two of you are writing down. So for those of you who are writing surah, number 64. It encompasses the entire conversation of today, but

00:16:02--> 00:16:14

I wish that I could start today's conversation with one ayah from Surah. Number 41. I am number 35. I'm just testing the group here. Do you know what Surah Surah number 41.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

Number 20.

00:16:21--> 00:16:35

And the prophets a lot is recited this and an ayah number if I incorrect 30. Our last one Tada. And if you're looking at a computer screen and look at me, because what is in the screen is not real. Our board tells us

00:16:41--> 00:16:51

personally secret feud with a loss, because we saw is exactly the equal in rationale to shape up. I couldn't think.

00:16:52--> 00:16:58

So I have to humble my ego so that you can receive His Word.

00:17:07--> 00:17:12

Indeed, those people I think that's us in the plural.

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

Do you want more? So would you say one time we say oh,

00:17:21--> 00:17:28

I can I can hear a young man. Well, how come I can hear more than I can hear everyone else one more time.

00:17:34--> 00:17:40

And now you know why I asked you to sit up. Think for a second. If you were sitting here and I said

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

How would you feel you would feel dirty.

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

But you would then assume a posture of dignity. So

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

whoever says

00:17:56--> 00:18:09

and then he puts his feet on the ground. He needs to like dig your heels in. If I said you know what? I'm not leaving. From here. I'm digging my heels in. What does that mean? What is what I move from this path?

00:18:13--> 00:18:36

I will stay here. The person who says Allah wa is my lord sustainer Creator God allowed me the my mom's telling me that I slept in a loss headwater, Allah is my Lord. So musta gone, and no one's going to change. No one's gonna move me from that. Not CNN, not to government in Texas, no one is going to change.

00:18:37--> 00:19:23

I encourage you just to take one. Whoever says this, and I believe we do say this doesn't that make us Muslim? That makes us Muslim, I believe that Allah tells us here in this dunya and you'll never think about a backpack program. You will never think about Katrina or Sandy or donating money for orphans in America. If you don't believe you're going to jump. There's a big gap. Right? Whether you came to pray slaughter, and I asked did I accept it? Most of us would say, inshallah, me. Yeah, what kind of prayer? Do you pray and say, Well, maybe God's gonna like it. You gotta go buy flowers for your wife and say, Maybe she'll like it. You ever do that? No, you go home, beautiful flowers I've

00:19:23--> 00:19:25

ever done. We don't go to a lot

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

to you and say I believe in a lot.

00:19:32--> 00:20:00

So let's have you ever tells me bla bla bla and stands firm on this. And that says, I don't know why bad things happen to good people. Why are there women shelters being built? So you can sit here and philosophize and think why do people get sick? But then you can say exactly what she said. I'll ask you the question again. How many of you think you're going to raise your hand See, if you think you're going

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

Jenna, I need to know why. And this brother could tell me I think I'm going to let you know why. Because there are more people to take care of. There are orphans to reach out. And then

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

now you understood this has nothing to do with donations. This has to do with the reality

00:20:19--> 00:20:30

asks you in the Day of Judgment, I was hungry. Everyone knows this. Everyone knows this narration that God will ask you always hungry. And even the people will say, Allah, you will.

00:20:32--> 00:21:03

I was thirsty, you didn't give me anything to drink. And we all think, how is this gonna happen? And Allah says, Did you meet someone who said, Look, I know in 2015, it's hard to do these donate, like the profits allows us to go door to door, he would find someone and say, let me feed you. It's hard to do that in 2015. I was at Dunkin Donuts, buying coffee. This is an example. And the guy behind me wanted, I wanted to buy his coffee. So I stepped to the side. I gave my card. I said, Man, I'm having whatever he's had

00:21:04--> 00:21:35

to pay for this coffee took three minutes. He was like, Why? What do you want? Are you Muslim? I was like, No, but I'm Muslim. Definitely. What happened? I wanted to give the guy behind. I wanted to give him some, maybe he would see a Muslim and feel better. Or maybe I just wanted to pay. That's very complicated. 10 years ago, you didn't have someone who would come and say, Look, I'll take your $15 or $25 donation, and I will take it to a child and put a backpack on them. We didn't have that.

00:21:37--> 00:21:45

But if colossal leave the exact topic, leave the relief topic. I'm still back at one simple point. If you believe you're going to

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

miss a fudger. And yes, you disrespect an elder.

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

But then when you make that mistake, what would you say

00:21:53--> 00:21:57

to the law? And who becomes delighted when you say?

00:21:59--> 00:22:02

Just say that with your mouth? Can you say the word funny hat?

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

Just so sisters, or brothers? We say feriha?

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

What does it mean?

00:22:17--> 00:22:39

It means to be delighted. It means you don't have to say Happy Happy is when you give a lollipop to your kid. That delight is when your wife comes to and says, We're expecting that delight, right? It's something you can taste for, like 20 minutes, you're like, Really? Are you for sure. Like you get so excited. Funny how the law, what does this translate?

00:22:41--> 00:22:53

Say with your mouth is hard to say like, a lot is delighted. And you say you tell me what that next word is. So I can do that thing. And my word has told us to the mouth of

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

some of our audience.

00:22:57--> 00:23:02

A lot becomes delighted when he said, I messed up.

00:23:03--> 00:23:26

I messed up. And especially when the slave says, I messed up again. Because you want your son to be like that I will never make a mistake. Again, I want you to say, well, I'll only make it 100 times. But every of those 100 times, I will find you every of the 100 times at the end of the sinner will find you So one more time, I will ask you Do you believe that you are going to?

00:23:28--> 00:23:31

And now that it just takes one? Yes, it takes one

00:23:32--> 00:23:40

in 10 of you to help it doesn't and now the first component of demand exists. And that is our creative view. And

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

then our Lord says

00:23:53--> 00:23:58

angels will descend. That doesn't mean you're gonna go to

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

the overall you party. You're good man, that that great political agenda and someone says you're good. What are you gonna say? I know. That's why I went. But here.

00:24:13--> 00:24:22

And I wish that there are a few people in this room who need to hear my voice and who need to realize what I'm saying is I'm saying to them, the angels would descend to the earth.

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

And they will say,

00:24:27--> 00:24:46

Don't you ever be afraid? What is fear? It's anxiety. What do we do today when we get anxious? Medicine, right? Or maybe we light up a cigarette, or maybe you call a friend. Or maybe you watch hours of TV, or maybe you do something or maybe when you're stressed and you're anxious. You go and you scream at your wife.

00:24:47--> 00:24:56

It's a drug. It's something. So when you recognize this anxiety, and then you say I'm going to have no anxiety

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and mattala becomes your anxiety.

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


00:25:06--> 00:25:51

There are four diseases that are encompassed in fear and worry. If you would write these down, they will help you. Because in 2015, more than donations more than reading portal on more than even praying Salah might offend you. This woman is facing four diseases. Everyone says Oh, people don't pray they die. People don't read more on. People didn't read more on 10 years ago, either. We're trying the four diseases, depression, anxiety, hopelessness, and paranoid. So yeah, I am a dissident. I'm a traveler. I'm trying to be open with you. Can we either just nod or maybe you can tell me a reality? How many people know someone suffering from depression, anxiety, that one person

00:25:52--> 00:26:11

hopelessness or paranoid in this genre, it could be your friend, right? It could have been your mom, it could have been the guy who you grew up with. But now, let me change the question. How many people know someone who's taking It's okay, the ancients? How many people know someone who takes a medicine in order to be to deal with these problems?

00:26:14--> 00:26:18

Like, 50% of the room too, but they're like, I think he's gonna think it's me.

00:26:19--> 00:26:25

Let's take it a step further. What if it is you? What if you're here, and there's a guy in this room? Who thinks he's going to

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

go into China? And you're riding

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

with us?

00:26:33--> 00:27:15

Right, bro, do you know someone like that? I had a friend growing up. And every time I talked to him, I would invite him. He said, He's not worth it. Think about this. We all know someone like this. He said, bro, there's no point in praying, I'm going to hell. And I'm staring at him. Like, how do you know? Could you tell me? I'd like to know, we have this mentality that a lot read us because a lot of very, That's not right. So let's pull the things in these four things that we have paranoia, depression, anxiety, and hope, less next, first, double in the last hour. So please tell me the things that you know, let's shell these four diseases. And let's first do one thing, everyone

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

deep breath through the nose for four minutes.

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

Hold the breath at the top.

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

And ask them to slowly slowly breathing the air out of your nose.

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

One more time.

00:27:33--> 00:27:37

Those of you who are like this, it's kind of tough, right? All of a sudden, you're like, Oh, wait.

00:27:39--> 00:27:56

I'm asking you to assume the position. Now we're going to do three things here. Number one, you're going to tell me what complete believers. So if you're going to get out, you must have three components right must be complete. If I say believer, what are the three things that you think about? Anybody?

00:27:57--> 00:28:05

If I said the first component to religion, the first component to prayer, okay, how would I know how to pray is very good point. But

00:28:06--> 00:28:10

let's go to the first revelation together. Brothers, you know the first revelation.

00:28:15--> 00:28:59

Right? So I want to point at you. This story that I'm narrating to you is eight days old. I personally narrated this to you. 38 days ago, I was with a group of students with mercy in Makkah. As we stood in Makkah, I was on the 16th floor. This has nothing to do with the main topic. I was on the 16th floor of COVID pick in those huge towers. And I opened the window to my hotel, and a lot of it off was Island. So I'm literally standing there and where the Cabos he left there was a lot of hidden. So I don't know, you can connect with me. I was kind of like, wow, hey, think about his friends whenever you couldn't meet in an EC glass box seat, either.

00:29:00--> 00:29:15

How many people have quickly sign up? Yeah, it takes three hours, right? And you're sweating. And when you get up there, you're like, Okay, great. How do I get down? Right? You're exhausted. We were sitting postable rush hour legs are up. And I'm like, Oh, dear, that is.

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

Now I started to say to the students can you believe that is where the last

00:29:23--> 00:29:24


00:29:27--> 00:29:35

And I only narrate this to you because this is real to you. And lightning struck as we looked at quite a bit off. And I said

00:29:37--> 00:29:40

and then I said and the second I revealed was

00:29:51--> 00:29:55

and we read it and what happened again, this is gonna sound like a Bollywood movie, but what happened again,

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

and then I said, and then I pulled out my phone.

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

I said, it must be raining today. So I pulled up literally went to whether or not calm vodka, it's so cool to see vodka calm and long ago, they said, there's going to be a thunderstorm. So I said, Okay, it's not God talking to us this, you know, calm down. Then we sat there and we decided to just make thicker, looked at a mountain board got touch through an angel and said the word

00:30:20--> 00:30:40

cloud. And in five minutes, lightning struck nine times. Now, why do I bring this to your attention? Why such a dramatic story? Because before it came on the mountain, how long did it last? A lot of time spent in the cave would be a little bit quicker. Now friends, we can take online, what did they do in that case?

00:30:41--> 00:31:00

meditate, take the big word and take the big word. So let's leave it over here. So the Prophet did something like meditation for how long? How long did the pockets go up to this mountain that takes two and a half hours, three hours to climb? When he went there to meditate? How long did you stay?

00:31:02--> 00:31:20

First off, he did three days and a lot of data on our narrative that once he went up there, and he stayed for 40 days. So this is a camping trip in a cave for three days. That's pretty intense. 14 days. Okay, how long did this travel go on?

00:31:22--> 00:31:37

10 minutes. So now if you live in America, just use your American brain just for a second. I want to introduce you to my friend. Okay. He's about 511. He's been meditating for 10 years in a cave.

00:31:39--> 00:31:40

How does his body invoke

00:31:41--> 00:32:23

this complete believer that I'm trying to describe to you? Okay, so skinny, or let's use another skinny is awake. But if I sat in a cave, so can I say slender? Because skinny makes me a little like Gandhi. Gandhi didn't indicate Gandhi was a lot of like meditation on the side. This is away from everyone. And so skinnier, leaner, how else would you imagine this person something about I introduced you to my friend who they have in common. He lived. He lives in a city normal city like anyone else. And he tends to walk outside of Chicago City and sit in a penthouse and meditate. He's been doing it for 10 years. Maybe no one can connect because you don't know what meditation is

00:32:23--> 00:32:24


00:32:25--> 00:32:28

Anyone can distract from what do you have to do to meditate?

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

breathing right before like contemplation,

00:32:33--> 00:32:36

or all these super words. Yeah, what do you have to do?

00:32:38--> 00:33:11

So could we take three breaths, the wave law. So a lot of this will change your perspective, I promise I will keep time, this will take less than 40 seconds, it will feel like I'm here. But this is what might not be good for 10 years, for days at a time. So I'm asking you one more time, a posture of dignity sit on your tush don't lean through. Remember, the human body was designed. Everyone knows my special where I my field that I work in, right? That's the one thing I work in radiology, I

00:33:12--> 00:33:59

I love bones. So the same skeletal structure that are sitting here right now your ancestors walked 10,000 miles with these bodies. Because we used to live at the top of the earth. We started to move the body that you filled out, bro, it hurts. You're broke. And you used to be able to walk 10,000 miles and now you can barely sit up for 35 minutes, there has to be something in the chain. So do you think it's possible for me to sit in a cave with my my back curve? That's not meditation. Because as soon as any meditator as soon as you slouch, you're not conscious anymore. So I asked you to assume a posture as if a last season, I asked you to assume a posture where your sternum, your

00:33:59--> 00:34:04

belly button, and your hips are all level. Let's quickly go through this time and then

00:34:05--> 00:34:16

we'll do this Can you describe the product performance level along with them? Can you give me four physical characteristics of the man that I'm trying to describe? physical characteristics. Come on. Tell me how you looked at

00:34:18--> 00:34:19

your beard.

00:34:21--> 00:34:24

Okay, tell me about the beard. Small beard Indian beard like this.

00:34:26--> 00:34:38

Okay, 14 My hair is okay. So in order to think about I have six I do I have 614 means beards. Little bit bigger. Right? Anyone can tell me the narration of the size of my beard.

00:34:40--> 00:34:46

Thank you so much. My enemy this tone in your shoulders called your wife on it allows you to do this sale.

00:34:48--> 00:34:55

You all have a ride home you just don't move enough to figure it out. My beard started here and an empty here. If you looked at

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

a lot of things going on behind the back, you know what you saw?

00:35:00--> 00:35:18

suck his beard. Can you all think like Lord of the Rings, thick, full beard and one of the pockets awesome. This just smile. You know the little hair down here. There was no Gillette Mach six back then. So there wasn't a trend here. This part here, someone took offense to that side, Chicago, everyone in Chicago and lined up.

00:35:20--> 00:35:32

We used to have a very straight face. But when he smiled, this part of his beard separate. So when he smiled, his entire face lit up a lot of us lucky enough to see Raj, a lot Muslim he was spending

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

a lot

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

more moving along.

00:35:40--> 00:35:54

So you have this 511 his shoulders secondaries. And so he has a beard, it's thick. It's why I chose the navigation is that following four steps. So if you walk away from the pocket,

00:35:55--> 00:36:11

called you so he wouldn't do this, this very interesting marriage, he would do this. Now that is Oh, look at the other Look how beautiful he was. But wait, if you saw a muscular man, how, what was the strength of the strength?

00:36:14--> 00:36:22

The narration that I take is 30 kilometers, maybe 10. Just so you can you can take the rock. And then you can take part because you're

00:36:24--> 00:36:54

religious, okay. So think about this, if a man who walks in the desert can walk from Makkah to Medina is done in 12 times, heel toe, he was heel toe. He never leaned forward, heel, toe and new coffee. So what does this mean? If I don't do this, that means the muscle here in the shoulders is always like this. And I will turn the wires in the pockets of our mother said when he would speak to us think of your woman saying this to you. And you guys are not married.

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

I'll take a married mother, if you could see your wife. And your wife said, but when my husband talks to me, I feel like I'm the only woman in the world. This is the words of our models. So can you imagine the direction?

00:37:12--> 00:37:21

Think about it. If my father called me and he says with some wood I remember I'm Brown. So there's an extra wood I say

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

to my dad, you don't know much

00:37:26--> 00:37:29

about my body parts will be left in the bank. How would I speak to my father?

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

So now I'm making a connection here. When you say in me what jack Do what?

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

How could you stand like this?

00:37:43--> 00:38:11

Because what part of you is facing a love this is your face to a loss. This is your face, the toes, the crest of your hip, your sternum, your smile. So when I look at it, when I look at a team, I've met the Crown Prince, I've met several and when you meet them, do you think you'll ever go to working and the simple example might be has not trade any salon yet? He's still in particular. I'm still describing this man. Do you think

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

if he was praying, praying to a God that you could see when he prayed like this?

00:38:20--> 00:38:33

It sounds it sounds like disrespectful. If I came to my dad and I said that, let's hang out. Like what what is this? What are you doing? But when you go to pray to Allah,

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

and Allah is not your king, he's more or less not just your God.

00:38:40--> 00:38:51

So I'm making a direct connection. If we want to feel as if we are going to gender. The first component is bringing the body in order in bringing the body in order the way that

00:38:54--> 00:39:05

I think I lost. I think I lost the connection. So I'm going to bring you all back. I'm describing the prophets awesomes body and what happens when you sit in a cave. He had a beard and I'm going to give you to warn

00:39:07--> 00:39:14

the chest and his belly buttons, a famous narration, the chest of the prophet SAW in his abdominal cavity. Can you tell me about

00:39:15--> 00:40:00

what was it? It was exactly the same most people say oh is chocolate like you would think my sternum and his belly button were exactly flat. Can anyone tell me how this exact detail is very interesting. What was there to connect these two things. One line of hair with you're talking about a model that truly a model because his body is hairless. He has one line of hair this meeting is not abundantly aware he has one line of hair and his chest and stomach are the same size. It's one more narration and the stomach of the pilots have been myself. Now I'm only in 180 degree weather. Still I'm going to show you I apologize for turning my back. I hold this posture for 18 minutes.

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

A day five times a day How does my stomach look friends?

00:40:04--> 00:40:27

How is it narrative write this down the wife of the Prophet salon is eliminated my stomach looked like a folded piece of paper when you crumpled that paper if you did what ends up on that piece of paper definition, a flat for strong stomach, how can you stand in ruku like this for 18 minutes? Five times a day if you had a pack of pillows

00:40:28--> 00:40:38

that make sense right? I want to go one more step one more step because I'm trying to connect His perfect body is where we're going how you

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

eat person and

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


00:40:45--> 00:41:00

at the product awesome entered into such that is a famous narration there was a goat and there was also an animal but once the boys came to play, the product nobody has ever went into such that I can just sit there right now for you because the direction and what happened in this much space

00:41:03--> 00:41:09

that go past underneath. You help me friend, if I have the 30 pound a sack of rice over here.

00:41:16--> 00:41:19

Right so you have a I don't know what you call it in English.

00:41:23--> 00:41:27

In English, we call it a beer belly and then someone goes gonna get very confused. So

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

the front end

00:41:31--> 00:41:38

How can you enter into adulthood? How can you go into such that? So you're all thinking is he telling us about prayer.

00:41:39--> 00:42:02

I'm seeing the complete believer. Now whether you said the first thing was prayer. If he prays correctly, then all of these components are gone. So number one, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spent 10 years, three days at a time breathing in a cave. Now do the activity with me up Charles that whole description was for you to look like Ahmed Salam it was on.

00:42:05--> 00:42:10

Hold the air at the top. You're going to spend five seconds bringing it out with me reading

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

into your nose.

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

Whoa, wait five.

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

Now with control, bring it up.

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

Bring stillness to your

00:42:39--> 00:42:40


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

Last one,

00:42:49--> 00:42:50

six seconds.

00:42:52--> 00:42:53

Now you're going to come up with

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

this process 34 seconds.

00:43:05--> 00:43:15

I'm not going to ask you to feel better. I'm not going to ask you to feel more calm. I'm going to ask you just to wait with me for four seconds and listen to the type of silence that is in this book.

00:43:18--> 00:43:33

This silence is when you hear your inside voice this silence is that when that voice that says should wake up for pleasure. You know you want and you know that lecture yesterday was so possible I want to wake up and break that this voice that you hear now.

00:43:34--> 00:43:41

I asked you to take the first component of the believer which is know yourself to know

00:43:43--> 00:44:05

if you know yourself and you know your physical body. I'm going to close this portion with the simplest device. The last panel at the ANA says in Surah Yaseen. So I want you to have a flat stomach. I want you to sit up straight I want you to breathe every hour before Ramadan. Once an hour, take three breaths. So every time seven pounds nine o'clock, everyone into your nose.

00:44:08--> 00:44:09

Hold for five

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

and bring it out as

00:44:20--> 00:44:30

long as you can keep that written letter. I'll speak slowly in Surah Yaseen, which is five pages long on the fourth page of last

00:44:31--> 00:44:32


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

on that day

00:44:48--> 00:44:51

alone will steal their mouths and the matrix people making.

00:44:53--> 00:45:00

A lot of steel your mouth and your hands will be need to speak and say that they he was holding this

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

TV remote. On that day, he sat on the ground. On that day he used me to put his glasses on their feet will begin to speak. And most of us here this is in

00:45:14--> 00:45:18

your mind is going to talk against me my eyes will talk about all that stuff I looked at, oh my god, it says,

00:45:19--> 00:45:21

I want you to only pause here.

00:45:22--> 00:45:26

If my hands will speak to say the bad things that I did, what does that also mean?

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


00:45:30--> 00:45:36

he will say all the good things he liked to me. He smiled once when he was reading his wife

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

was like,

00:45:40--> 00:46:22

is your CV automatically say, Oh my god, I love the angry God is going to make my body parts talk. But why can't we say yes, I'm excited to hear what this guy has to say. I've done many bad things. But for every 1000. And for every good, I asked a lot to accept it. So when we look at the scary angry flood the Earth to the people who don't pray, we're looking at the wrong picture. And you're not having a spiritual connection with the law. If you believe he's angry and flooding the earth, then you don't have that physical connection. So I will try this. Maybe the elders will understand this a little better. And I wish to move to the next topic.

00:46:23--> 00:46:25

I just did Shahada before coming here

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

at ICC mustard.

00:46:32--> 00:46:50

Good brother. I wanted to Shahada and he's a tall gentleman who was Caucasian. He was a white guy. And he came in and they asked him a lot of questions. But then we started doing Shahada. And I know you know what I'm about to say, but I found it amazing. So maybe some people appreciate how do you do Shahada? What do you say?

00:46:53--> 00:46:53

You say that?

00:46:55--> 00:46:56


00:46:58--> 00:47:05

So I'm gonna ask the tough, philosophical question. In the sentence that makes you a Muslim?

00:47:06--> 00:47:19

Who do you say first, yourself for a while in the sentence that makes you Muslim? Should in that sentence, start with a law there is no god except to testify?

00:47:20--> 00:47:31

Why could put you first, God put you at the beginning of the sentence. so tough questions Chicago. There's so much we believe in him first.

00:47:32--> 00:47:39

Or does he want to believe that you exist? And that your opinion of whether there's a god or not matters to who?

00:47:40--> 00:47:44

Alone? So I'll say one more time everyone will get their mind everyone say

00:47:54--> 00:48:04

there is no God. There's no other judge ruler. There's no other physicists. To me. Gravity. There's no chemistry except the law. In law, the law

00:48:05--> 00:48:06

even though law

00:48:09--> 00:48:13

accepts a lot. So in this sentence, I coma who came first.

00:48:15--> 00:48:22

That's the problem. No one wants to believe that they exist and everything I do, as soon as I say
