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

Hey Nina Shane

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

Lee

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

Bismillah

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

he

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

I seek refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala from shavon the occurs

00:00:31--> 00:01:17

in the Name of Allah the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful, I will recite some is from the Quran surah Ibrahim one through four during that time with all due respect, listen to the Quran I swear by Allah all of your recordings will not give you the same sound that you hear live my request please don't have flashes in my eyes please don't have recordings now experience on will la Hila Diem there are 1000 recordings online better than me. Listen to them live sound and this is proved this is a proven fact live sound effects people more than recorded sounds it's different frequency. Yes, Abdullah I did say frequency. And if LA

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

LA LA LA

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

LA county region.

00:01:32--> 00:01:44

No, a book that we sent down upon you Mohammed rasulillah la Can you talk region sanmina una de la

00:01:46--> 00:02:06

a book that came down to provide a means a path from darkness multiple darkness into one single light. Allah subhanaw taala points out that the book The Quran will give you explanation of many, many shades of darkness. But how many shades of clear light are there?

00:02:07--> 00:02:56

One single Minute Guru Mattila? No, but this won't happen on its own. B is near on p him Isla de la zz Hemi with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The book will provide for you the shades of darkness, and then you'll be able to identify who will help you identify the shades of darkness was sort of last sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So I'm not just going to whip out the Quran be like, okay, it's going to work for me. I'm going to go through an example. And this example will work by the permission of Allah because he is who he loves. He loves him. I told you what it was he should have pulled it up. Swati Aziz and Hamid, it didn't say Aziz Hakeem, it didn't say he didn't say any of

00:02:56--> 00:03:30

the attributes of Allah that are Stern, Aziz is overpowering, all mighty. But Hamid Hamid comes into my the section that I will talk about, and that is the most praiseworthy, the most so that we thought we saw many nice cars coming here. Those cars we praised when we saw them. When we speak of Allah subhanho wa Taala and His mercies. It's not just what you see whether you praise Allah or not. Please remember this phrase, whether you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala or not Who is he as even

00:03:32--> 00:03:59

guys after Aziz come? Hamid is a chef who knows this already is answering for us. Friends, there's about 50 of you in here. I don't intend to give a long talk. I intend for you to interact with us to experience it. That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the next hour after saying that he's the Almighty, and after saying he's the most praiseworthy, Allah subhanaw taala talks about a long Hillel de la Houma.

00:04:03--> 00:04:43

Allah subhanaw taala says, and a lot To Him belongs whatever in the in the heavens and one laughing out and whatever is in the earth, whatever is in the heavens, whatever is in the earth and as the Anima say, in between the heavens and the earth is the internet. So whatever is on Facebook, Allah knows it to Allah has control of this Nope. Why did Allah say Walmart fill out everything between the heavens everything between the Earth even the zeros and ones, Allah knows that pattern two, because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who gave us the opportunity to know these two things, two items. Rule number two is of surah Ibrahim changed the way we start our date. Imagine if we read

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

these verses, this is anywhere from Quran and we started all of our events like this. Imagine if you started arguing with your spouse or your parents when I leave la the argument would end very quickly to

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

These two ions Allahu levita humar to somehow it was way too little caffeine, I mean other been shady. And those who disbelieve you take this word disbelief. I want you to add the word and those who discredit Allah by not being thankful the carrier is not just the disbeliever. Right? We'd like to screen that. But while wait a little caffeine, I mean other than shady, and woe unto the person who has the opportunity to choose belief, and he doesn't have a punishment, that is shady. That is severe. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who can live these verses, and who can recite them and enjoy their recitation and to and to recite them as well. I believe it's okay to start my

00:05:47--> 00:06:32

talk hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I praise I thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the opportunity to sit with to two of those who have the ability to give and they let one more come. Just because I praise them. Thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for transportation. I praise Him thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I said this at ease zone set central zone, I praise and thank Allah subhanaw taala for it's called your terminal ileum it's between every conference I tried to pick one part of the body, we made one thank Allah for the facial muscles that allow you to smile. We did that at Central. But today, I met so many patients. And I can include

00:06:32--> 00:07:04

myself amongst them who don't have a terminal ileum it's the connection between your small intestine and large intestine. I'm not going to ask you to raise your hand. But praise Allah. Because I am almost sure all of you have one. Some of us don't, because it gets taken out. This is the part that allows like salads and sushi anything raw nuts, berries to get broken down? I give you my word. Why are we praising Allah? subhanaw taala for this 10 people 10 of my friends we did an experiment. We wrote our initials on a pig on a pill and we eat it.

00:07:05--> 00:07:06

Yeah.

00:07:08--> 00:07:16

So we it's a pill it's supposed to dissolve in your terminal ileum Guess what? Still had our initials on it. That's all I can say.

00:07:17--> 00:07:47

Thank Allah, thank Allah for the smallest smallest of things. For Jenna. You don't have to use the bathroom. And many people say What's that? Why would someone write in a hadith book that you don't have to go to the bathroom? friends go into the bathroom is an ordeal. Thank Allah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool e Nabeel Karim, we praise we think and we identify ourselves amongst those who stay say the statement,

00:07:49--> 00:07:52

a shadow on either in the law wash Hello, Anna Mohammedan.

00:07:55--> 00:08:06

I have a very short period of time. So I want you all to at least write down or pretend pretend I will not in smile. Just pretend every few minutes just look down at your phone. And every time someone says to behind a lie next to you just do this.

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

I promise the guy next to you will be like, Oh my god, the job is writing something down. So she'll write something not to say oh my god that bearded guys writing something not

00:08:17--> 00:08:59

to do that. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our beloved Prophet said it's narrated in a book authored by his book, Daddy, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said trapped knowledge. That companion said how you had a pseudo law, how can you trap this intangible thing, which is better than gold? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam responded to the bill kita. In your books, if I made a man on a salatu salam, without the gift of being able to read, encourage others to do, he knew his responsibility. And he encouraged the others for Allah had promised him in Surah gamma la Todrick. Don't worry about memorizing it very quickly. I'll take care of that. But for us, Allah

00:08:59--> 00:09:37

hasn't given us that promise. So I encourage you to write down surah number two, I am number 153. I have 153. I believe it's in your programs. This comes and let's just quickly get into this because it's the first topic right? I'm the first speaker for the conference. So let's lay some academic grounds. Can you call out to me? Does anyone know where this surah is like on the page? What's going on around this is it's Sora buckler, the second page. Anyone can tell me what's happening in Medina at this point, so called a superhero in a nutshell, this whole thing is going on. Does anyone know what happens around these is when this ayah was revealed? Where was the profits of Luddism? Yellow

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

this sort of please. Anybody? makara Medina.

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

Let's see. Maybe Medina. Okay. I'm gonna just keep nodding now. There you go. Okay, fantastic. It was revealed in Medina and what was going on at this time friends, don't you remember 16 months were praying towards Jerusalem. But if you lived in Makkah, you could pray on the Yemeni corner.

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

You could pray facing Jerusalem facing the Kaaba, You with me? Yeah. So now for the first time recently lost a lot Islam has changed the direction, the direction of the prayer has been changed. And now we're in Medina and we have to pray. We still have to pray in this direction for what to do would you have to suffer? So Allah subhanho wa Taala is not only mending the heart of rasulillah but also the people of Medina who are like, wait a minute, wait a minute, we pray for 16 months facing that way, what happens to this prayer and then all of a sudden it went from they were living in Medina so that experience was different than they were like, but we want No, no, we don't like this

00:10:38--> 00:10:57

way. Mohamed Salah ohanian someone so Allah subhanho wa Taala is consoling rescued a lot and Rasool Allah is dealing with the people screaming at him. They're like, wait a minute, okay, so you went on this magical journey. Okay, and you came back here and we yahood of Medina, we've been praying this way and now all of a sudden you're gonna change it.

00:10:59--> 00:11:27

Now remember, Allah subhanho wa Taala here in 153 says, Guru oni COO, COO, coo Rooney. Remember who Allah, Allah might bring a very simple point. It doesn't say for the guru of law, because when I say first guru law, it distances me. It's like, Oh Allah, Allah is so high. I can't touch him. Allah says remember me?

00:11:29--> 00:11:37

First Guney cuckoo come and I cannot take credit for this translation. But does anyone know what this means? But guru let's go Kumar does it mean

00:11:38--> 00:11:55

and I will remember you I will cannot take credit. So one of my colleagues on the way here mentioned first qurani, one guru calm would mean so remember me and I will remember you. Allah subhanaw taala says what first Guney as

00:11:56--> 00:12:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala is always remembering us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is in a perpetual state. How do we know this? How do we know this? How do we know that Allah subhanaw taala remembers us and oh well brother there's just not a wow there big deal. Surah Fatiha I'm gonna give you something that you can respond to me for? What is the proof that Allah subhana wa Eilat perpetually and at all times remembers us, he tells us the answer by the Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, what's the first iru recite?

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

What does it

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

really

00:12:31--> 00:12:58

mean as some of the kids here? Any young people know what the first if Surah Fatiha is? I'm sorry, MSA students, maybe you haven't seen me on the East Coast? This is the MSA. Right? So when I speak to 1000 people, I can't do this when we speak to 500 older people who are waiting for us to make a mistake. And you said you guys aren't those people. So if you wanted a lecture, go to YouTube. Let me ask one more time. Surah Fatiha first style? Anybody?

00:12:59--> 00:13:14

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen when we say Alhamdulillah and you pucker your lips. You don't say in Alhamdulillah you don't say hamdulillah? He you pucker your lips and say Please repeat after me and you can do

00:13:16--> 00:13:22

sisters It's okay. God will forgive you brothers. I don't know what exactly. Maybe you don't have. I don't know.

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

God only knows. And if you don't have a dish, okay? Please repeat after me.

00:13:32--> 00:13:43

When you pack your lips, This signifies all praise and thanks are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if you put in parentheses, whether we human beings praise him or not,

00:13:45--> 00:13:53

Allah doesn't need us to praise him. Why? Why think about this? Well, if we don't praise Allah, then who will and hamdulillah here.

00:13:57--> 00:14:19

All of the nations all of the creatures all of the the molecular and cellular level were put on FIFA Kenya spoons, everything spins in an orbit from the cell all the way to the universe to the atoms. Allah subhanaw taala is being praised by those things. So when Allah subhanaw taala says and for the rest of the evening, when you hear from guru Tony ash coo coo,

00:14:20--> 00:14:43

Bruni, when you hear these verses of remember me, and I will remember you, then remember that Allah subhanaw taala is in this perpetual state. So one more notation, I am number seven of surah Ibrahim, where Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us as Rooney as guru comb, wash guru Li Voila.

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

So Allah subhanaw taala says, Remember me? I am remembering you are allies in always remembering us. And if you are thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let's take this word wish guru Lee. Let's take sugar how many times anyone can

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

Remember an ayah in the Quran where this exact word is used the shook the remembrance and thanking of Allah subhanaw taala. Let's take the ayah and then we'll translate it inshallah. So now you know where we are the prophets along with it was some of them were in Medina, a lot is going on the Qibla has been changed. People are kind of mocking at risk of loss of weight. You're going to be praying this way, like tomorrow we're going to be praying upside down. What's up with this? So this is this badgering is going on with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and now we're in Surah. Ibrahim, where Allah subhanho wa Taala uses what is the translation of his remember when it's not just

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

remember, it's remember one? What if?

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

And do you remember when we told bunny ears are older, older cousins? Don't you remember when Moosa and his people came to them? And they said, What if the oven are broken? And if you don't you remember when they were told by the prophet by Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you remember, and are thankful to Allah, what is the oven or bucola in Shackleton, you hear the sheen, Shackleton that he gives you.

00:16:18--> 00:16:21

If you think a lot, then he will increase you.

00:16:22--> 00:17:03

Here's my question to you all college students. And to us who just left this round, the things that you're thankful for your your beauty, your smile, your talent on the basketball court, they've all been cultivated by you, right? But I asked you this much the senses that we received, we received from Allah subhanaw taala for free. So that's the equivalent of me coming to you and saying, I'm going to build you a house, I'm going to pay your college tuition. And all you have to do y'all remember the famous college scene example. This is sugar at its at its peak. So artist Sharif and I are going to do all of you guys a favor, we're going to build each one of you a home. In this home

00:17:03--> 00:17:29

carpeting is the you know, central vacuum, everything, including internet will be build it and give it to you for free. The only thing that you're requested to do is inside this house, there are phones, there's Wi Fi everywhere. All I need you to do is pick up the phone four or five times a day and say look at the you know, everything's in order things are great. And by the way, thank you.

00:17:30--> 00:18:12

How many people how many of us would say this is thanks, receiving something for free, and saying thank you. This is thanks. But imagine if you couldn't pick up the phone. And you picked up the phone once and said Yo, what's up man? And this is not the way I wanted it. Okay, let me come and fix it. Right so when we get a cut, right you look at all Ah, what a lot. What's this? I don't I gotta cut unless Allah sends selves unless Allah sends mercy. And he fixes My only question to you is a lot didn't ask you to think before you got Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us everything on credit, everything on credit. And the highest interest yield is with the human being. Allah subhanaw

00:18:12--> 00:18:35

taala gave us sight. This is the top of the page Surah 67 I believe it's about Ayah number 20. Well, I'll leave it in the 20s is only from I am number 20 to 30 Surah mulk 67. I encourage you, I beg you, if you need my juice, you can drink my juice, just read that surah in translation before you sleep. In this sort of last minute Allah talks about what we got for free

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

and who will be an

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

hour

00:18:44--> 00:19:21

of Eden. It is Allah who gave us seeing ability to touch to feel to experience well like I'm a pusher button a little bit here. When you see something on a billboard and it looks gorgeous. Or you see the guy from white collar which is really tight job Oh, and you're like oh my God, that's beautiful. Because Allah made it beautiful. Right away. Yes, I'm not saying whether Rama Alonso is beautiful. No one said was wrong. But it's the it's the attitude that towards that which we see. It's the attitude that when I look at something I like a lens not there. But when I look at the Kaaba Allah

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

shift back

00:19:24--> 00:19:34

when you're given something for free, Allah subhanaw taala says and use this thing for free use it. What is going on? Oh Bukola in Chicago.

00:19:35--> 00:19:42

Adam is a very, very interesting thing, sugar shape on and should all have the flashy in them all have this.

00:19:44--> 00:19:50

I'm a very big sound person. So you guys know when you turn on your TV, and you get 1003 What does it sound like?

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

Sugar. It's very confused topic. We think same things is enough to Allah in Arabic

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

Look, it's not something you say, in Arabic, how do you say things in real spoken Arabic? Do you? Does everyone walk around saying thank you, thank you the way we do?

00:20:09--> 00:20:27

shook in the language, it's a verb. It's done. So something good happens to your mom does something right? You don't say things you kiss, you exchange for this, this sugar of the mouth. It wasn't there for the first four years of your life.

00:20:28--> 00:21:08

But they were glances. This is why point number one of how to think a lot, how to be aware and a parent of these things, by the way, digits, these, this most amazing machine in the world. Like literally, they tried to reproduce the human hand. Five bones rotated this way, five bones rotated this way. But that doesn't include your fingertips. This creation that Allah subhanaw taala gave us it's infinitely used, we can use it. And we can use it for good. But the first point of how to thank Allah subhanaw taala without your words, yeah, you can take a picture don't talk about it, just go for it. They're like eight, nine people talk to each other.

00:21:10--> 00:21:20

By the time you ask that question, you can pick it up and never been done. I'm gonna come up there and take your camera, so do what you must. I don't want to become that. He was her mom to take pictures.

00:21:22--> 00:21:29

No, I did not say that. I just said listen to the camera. But if you must, and you must keep losing this point. What was the last point?

00:21:30--> 00:21:45

shocker to Allah subhanho wa Taala through the digits through his through service. The number one thing and if you want to jot this down, how many times in Nepal? does Allah subhanaw taala say to you Be respectful and this is for young people please don't misinterpret this.

00:21:46--> 00:22:02

One of the biggest ways to thank Allah in the Quran How many times has a last pinata Allah mentioned your visit the parents, six times you can write up write down six times. And he says Mr. Da boo Illa

00:22:10--> 00:22:18

Mr. otaku Illa you only worship Allah. And again, you're gonna love this one a lot. He doesn't put a period. He didn't say worship Allah.

00:22:20--> 00:22:29

And if it works out, take care of your parents. It says worship a lot and it's joined in the same sentence. It's illegal in the recitation for me to say Mr. taboo in LA.

00:22:32--> 00:22:52

Santa wouldn't be recommended. But now I'm gonna ask you a second question. How many times is Allah subhanaw taala. Say, and love and respect and be dutiful to your children? Be thankful? How many times did Allah subhanaw taala say be respectful, beautiful thankful to your wife and kids? Anybody?

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

Call it a

00:22:56--> 00:23:35

zero? Well, one time? Yes. So of the six times Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds you to be dutiful to who don't say parents. What are your parents? They're the people you peed on. They're the people who gave you life. They're the woman who so many sisters comes, Oh, it hurts. I'm feeding my child and it feels like it's never gonna end. Well, he saw the goofy I mean, let's not get too much into the parents. But what Allah subhanho wa Taala has to remind us six times to take care of people that gave us life. But he doesn't have to tell you to take care of your wife and kids. Because you will sacrifice your religion for your wife and kids. You will sacrifice mom and dad because that guy on

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

Facebook said Allahu Akbar.

00:23:39--> 00:23:46

Yes. He said, I learned it. My cousin taught me that it shall look so I learned.

00:23:48--> 00:24:24

But when that happens, how quickly mom dad who loves to support it? How quickly does their love go away? If you want to do real sugar to Allah, don't say thanks to your parents, be dutiful to them, be available to them. And when someone calls you and says, break this shook. And why am I focusing here? Because if you cannot worship Allah subhanho wa Taala that you can't see. If you can't be thankful to one you can't see. How can you be thankful to the people who sit in front of you, your mom and dad? point number one I close on point number two, what if the other normal blue camera in Chicago, z.

00:24:25--> 00:24:30

If I gave you a million dollars and you invested it back in my company, I would give you this much return. That's amazing.

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

But what does

00:24:33--> 00:24:46

anyone know the end of the I am waiting for someone to be like yeah, brother, I found it. It's in the Quran. It's a great book. You should read it. I'm hoping you would do the same bestseller on Amazon. Let's do it one more time. What if kukula in Chicago

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

whether Inka fortum in either B or D. So the flip side and I have to leave because the next two speakers will take it from here. If one side

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

The coin is thinks and thinks is a verb and thinks is something that I'm available for service to mankind, for service to Allah subhanho wa Taala to the people who are there to be beautiful and respectful to my friends to the people around me. This is shook. But if I refuse, and I wear a hijab, and I grow a beard, then I will look really weird, but you know what I mean?

00:25:23--> 00:25:28

Tough crowd man is a tough crowd. Smile a little bit. The first con is you're going to be serious.

00:25:29--> 00:25:39

If you grow your beard and you live a certain way, and you start your sugar to Allah is Allah guide these plastic people who don't pray,

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

haven't really done anything.

00:25:42--> 00:26:05

You looked at someone and someone might have looked at you and said, oh my god Make me like them. That's things shook the verb, it takes action. So we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring to the close. The flip side of being thankful is not disbelief. It's being ungrateful. And I will prove this through one Iron Man know how much time I got

00:26:06--> 00:26:13

one minute. Okay, here we go. So we're about 254 first page of the third just look at the top it starts Yeah.

00:26:16--> 00:27:09

Oh, you believe and the eye ends when in gasoline and the disbelievers so how does an ayah start? Oh, you believe and then end with Governor's sort of Baccarat, it's to 254 right before I took mercy right to 55 right before that. So Allah subhanho wa Taala points something out to mankind. disbelief is a very heavy word. ungrateful. forgetting about Allah is what he's warning us. When you choose to transgress Allah's laws and you're not grateful, you become ungrateful and you enter a form of dis obeying Allah's Law. Last do we all know it? What are the punakha levina naswa but uncertain and four seven, I end with you through a harsher sentence 28 Jews 59 surah.

00:27:10--> 00:27:21

In the last five aisles you'll find it. Allah subhana wa tada says, Do not be like those who forgot Allah, for they have forgotten their own selves.

00:27:22--> 00:27:37

And Allah subhanaw taala makes a comparison of this. So let us be amongst those who remember align everything we do. When we play video games, when we watch TV when we live when we sit at conferences, when you text the new shorty. See Alhamdulillah and maybe she'll be like Yo, what's Alhamdulillah

00:27:39--> 00:27:40

like I gotta recognize Allah.

00:27:42--> 00:27:58
