Today we have been privileged to start with us who has traveled all over the United States. And he'll be presenting today's talk, titled,
I just like to
start with song Sharif. Start with something began this journey in some experience of the Islamic Institute of Education in Illinois.
He also completed his memorization of the grant, and excelled in early studies of the dream.
They were selected from 33 students internationally for the growing economy in the world, completing his bachelor's in Arabic grammar with a minor in some literature.
To start with authentic case studies back to the Middle East, in 2007. It was privileged to study in Makkah in civil war because most prominent scholars will start with resolve what's been most recently returned to the series portion of the various locations of the holy grail on on Canada is studies with Seamus Monson continuing.
We'll start with the question and answer session at the end. So if you have any questions, there'll be small pieces of paper in
those questions on that request for questions to be
covered. And tied for meeting started this on wants to recognize any additional questions. So without further ado, I'd like to
talk over federal law. And also, if you can switch off your mobile phone
wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Sunni.
of praise and thanks are due to Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us life today. All praise and thanks are due to a loss of Padma data gave us life on Juma all praise and thanks are due to a loss of data give us a Masjid with beautiful young people who are willing to sit with us. All praise and thanks are due to lost data and gave us not only a beautifully decorated mustard but Allah has given us so much technology, so many things around us. So I asked you to choose before we talk about Allah, I would like you to choose some things that you are going to praise a lot more specifically, something that happened to you uncle that maybe I don't know about but praise a light in your heart and say
electric date my wife didn't hear it. today. No one cut me off when I went to when I went to park icy parking to talk to you. So you praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for all the gifts that He has given you and as we praise the Lord yesterday, we picked three things that all of us have definitely been blessed with. So we seek to Allah subhanho wa Taala along
Bella give us the opportunity to meet together, I won't get to know your needs this evening.
But if I don't get to meet you here, then inshallah please do introduce me. Introduce yourself to me in general, for Allah brought you here that he already loves you. If Allah subhanho wa Taala brought you to a talk about loving him, that he already loves you. So in return if you keep that as the premise of today's talk, that Allah Allah could have bought 1000 people here, Allah subhanaw taala could have chosen two people to be here, but he chose you to be here. And this is not a soft way to start a discussion. It's the real way to start a discussion. You prayed tomorrow today because of like gifted you. You were able to drive your on whatever capacity because electrodes so we say to
Allah subhanho wa Taala We praise you. We thank you with your names and attributes for today. You this brother here and everyone else was not cowardly. You could have been anywhere else on a Friday evening and young people trust me. If you don't know where to go on a Friday evening. I could help you and for the other group
service we have not been amongst the leesy Allah subhanho wa Taala could have given us some type of alien some type of sickness could have been stomach could have been our joints. But a lot brought us here. And a lot of my data did not make us amongst the cheap. And one of the most expensive things that we have more than our money is our time. So a lot of our data abroad is here to discuss nothing else then, how much he loves us, and how much hope we should have in him, and how much fear we should have. we tackle this in the hood. But today, we tackle this in the flip side, the other side of town, but we don't fear a loss of hogwash. Anyone can tell me what do we fear? Tell me please.
It's not a lot that we fear. What is it that we fear?
punishment right? If you love somebody, your parents, you love your parents. You don't fear your parents, you feared this pleasing your parents. If I do this on me won't be happy. If I do this, maybe my father won't feel happy with. So this concept of thinking of Allah subhanaw taala as something we're afraid of. This is something that it's kind of a distortion of how we see a loss of
profit some a long winded answer. Please help me out. I need to know at what level of a crowd Am I speaking to? When I say Hades Pudsey. What does this mean? It's the multiverse with a lot but
it's the words of Allah subhana wa Tada. Excellent. So now the elders notice they need to prove their, you need to earn your stripes. So last words through the mouth of Mohammed was sudo last a long while it was some are such that my slave, Allah says my slave will find me as he perceives me. My slave will find me as he perceives me. If you perceive a loss of data that Oh, you made one mistake, that's it, you're going to help this is how you will find the loss of data. What does this mean? When you act when you perceive a lot when you get up for failure begrudgingly like Oh, here we go. I have to go pray. Now if I don't pray, I have to get it out of the way. Either. Sometimes, as
time comes in, a better pray, I want to get it over with. So this is the way we perceive a lush paradise. This is the way we'll be dealt with. But if we see a loss of hand what Allah the way he describes himself and today if you want to take out your phone, you can follow along. It's Surah Nisa, what is what number is
for all the elders?
So surah number four, I am number 2627 and 28. If you can take it out for me, I will be asking you questions. Many times you hear all of us speak that when they speak, you keep your mouth shut and you listen. But when young people come to share thoughts, ideas of what they have learned from Obama, you should take notes. And it before we get too deep into our discussion is Surah Nisa number four is number 2627. And 28 B is an invalid data, something that you should also know karate, Daddy karate like the Imam Ali Baba, the place that we decided to blow up katiba
right in his he has a book called the edits of the student of knowledge. In this book, he writes or narrates it or compiled it. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said trap knowledge. The Companions asked how there's two things we can learn from this. One someone of knowledge asks you a question. And you don't know don't guess. Don't get asked how. So the companions were asked to trap knowledge. The companion said this intangible thing, how can it be trapped under the sudo la dee solo model, it must be kita. In your books, the prophets Allah Almighty has encouraged us to write has encouraged us to jot things down. So if you don't have something to write on, then do as
the early early companions of the early select would do. They would take pieces of leather, and they would actually go into it with a pin. They would attach things into it and they would take it home. We have narrations that would they would sit and learn from scholars and they would run out because paper wasn't like the 99 p store where you walk in and buy a stack. It was very difficult to get paper. So they would take off their sandals and the top of the sandal was made of leather. What would they do? They would attach this they would call out of pseudo law. They would attach the words onto the top and then they would carry their sandals home and get to a piece of paper and that they
will transcribe it. I mean, this to me seems awkward. I will say it seems very uncomfortable to think about this. But this was love for knowledge, not other
This was a pursuit of learning the word so that they could act on it. And then not being amongst people who made excuses. So Habiba about that he gives us in his book, what was the name of his book,
advocates of the student of now.
That's what he said right now, according to MBA classes, when you take your first speech class, the average adult male can only remember the first 800 words you said, and I've already spoken 250. So, buckle up, try your best to write us a lot to open your heart so that you can benefit from this and say a lot any misconceptions that I have before this allows us to remove it from so in this we see the transition of the Prophet Muhammad, some of you it was someone telling us to perceive a loss. But we as human beings have two elements, we're limited and dependent. So as a limited and dependent creature, I cannot fathom alone. I can't understand who is a lot and how much is alone. So in Surah,
number four is number 26. And on desert a lot cleaner, Allah subhanho wa Taala. And for those of you who are graduate students, you're going to see a miracle in
a large panel of goddesses to aspire to be like Amina Shay.
I seek refuge with a love from shape bonding occurs, why was shaped by a regime, not because he didn't listen to a loan? Remember? Unless that makes sense, though, right? And everyone needs to accept at least this wasn't his big mistake. But then a lot asked him.
What stopped you from making such that shavonne at that point, the doors of forgiveness were open. He could have said
you know what I made a mistake. But what did he say?
He rationalized his thought above the loss.
He gave an excuse that he thought some for some reason he was better than this clay creature. But this wasn't the issue. He thought he knew more than Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why he is ashamed Barbra Jean and when you say out to be lacking in a shape one of regime you are asking a lot a lot don't meet me like that one who took his brain used his frontal lobe intellect and said I know more than Allah. And in the UK, I know more than Allah subhanho wa Taala so someone old some old man with a beard tells me to lower my eyes when I see someone What does he know? He knows a stuffed robot. I know inshallah, right? This is the difference. He knows. Oh, yes. I know what I'm doing. So
this is the rationale about the laws of Allah subhana wa Tada. So we take in conjunction after saying a lot helped me to place my thoughts of arrogance low my ignited flame of a guidance Hi, this means
your honor you in the name of Allah subhana wa tada the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. Whenever you benefit from something, it's because Allah put that benefit there. And when your mom found you in your dirty nappy and she did not throw you away.
So when something is good to you, you think that thing and then you also say May Allah bless you as well. So lots of hammer data and I am number 26 says to us, you really
do so Nana, you redo Can everyone say this word so that you understand the verb patterns, say you
need a means to want. And the next word is a law. You read the law can you imagine the concept just leave the I for one second? Allah wanting something when Allah subhana wa tada says he wants could buy a boon and it's done. So Allah subhanho wa Taala starts the sentence by saying once a lot of you
so that things are clear self evident for you. Begin are those things when you put a glass of water on a table, you can see through the glass that's what God wants. He didn't want to complicated religion which has become now he didn't want us to get overwhelmed with how long my moustache is and whether my pants go touching the ground or do they touch that? Do they touch the ankle bone or below the ankle bone? Allah subhanaw taala didn't want us to be overwhelmed by questions and laws. We will very
clear simple religion. Love your parents. Be
Able and available to community members for service and at least act like a Muslim? Well, yeah.
So not only did he want things to be clear for us, but he wanted what else he died. He died is a very open word. So when I say he died, it's like guidance. So Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted us to be guided, but it's not like the GPS on the thing is on your phone. Sometimes it cuts out sometimes it comes in a lot of what Allah told us. And if you want to make a notation of this, when you say it didn't slip on, study in the Arabic language, do you know the word CR? What does it mean? Straight? So it means straight path, what is Mr. D that we always translate guide into the straight path? So it
wouldn't be enough. But a lot of what Allah gave us this word was the theme in the pursuit of guidance. I'll ask you a question. It is not only the straight path, but it is the consistent path. You know, when you have a really expensive GPS, and you type in I need to get
right to give the address and say you turn off what is the GPS do automatically.
It recalculates. Right. So even when we don't follow the Hidayat have a lot of we take a wrong turn. And maybe we spend a night doing something that Allah doesn't like, leave the word half per second. Because if you love someone, it's not about the how long Hello. It's something that will displace a lot. When you turn what you do automatically let the GPS allocate, I do a lot. I made a mistake. I was supposed to go there, but I'm lost here. This is hidden. When you ask a lot of Hanwha data when you're lost. Now when you're driving down the street road and just want to make sure I'm in the right yep. Okay, everything's okay. know, when you took the wrong turn, a lot automatically
recalculates the GPS. Why are you there?
And it's not just guidance being recalculated a lot.
profits. So he wanted things to be clear for us. You were in a while Yeah.
That he wanted things for us to be guided to a straight, consistent GPS signal. And what was that signal mean? To the people who live before us? What happened last summer
taught us a complete life reciting set up who taught us and sometimes we feel uncomfortable talking about Jesus right? Or they set out to set up because that title has been robbed. But what were the teachings of
what did his teachings embody?
Love, that's all he taught.
In many scenarios, he taught love, he taught compassion, or he was the one to spend time. So when we hear the word of Jesus and we hear this and sometimes we turn away, let us remember amongst our via his reciting, and amongst his teachings with other people was the teaching of love. And when the Christians came to Muhammad Rasulullah and say, What do you say about Jesus? What do you say about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this guidance in this Hidayat in making things clear, he reminded the Christians of his time
around is more my brother than anybody why they were brothers in what?
In Islam, the prophet in Islam, but in Prophethood, and Baden rasulillah, and resized or backwards reciting synonymous with law, how many prophets between them now 600 years of darkness, these are
600 years where Allah subhanho wa Taala chose not to send to mankind to give, but we have these two lights. And then we have the strength and sturdiness of Musashi setup. And then if we fast forward, we have the life of a robot for the love of God and the companions who came to pass. So now all of a sudden he died. isn't that difficult? You just press rewind on the TiVo, go back to all the Netflix that talks about the pseudo law that talks about the library. Sorry, sir. And it reaffirms what FDA approved sooner than that in admin pubnico It reminds us what true guidances so sometimes we get lost along the path. And we're not sure why does Allah He has so much. Why does the last lesson? Why
does the lesson give us difficulty? We forget to turn back to the stories of Musashi Sarah. Do you remember when Musashi Sarah was traveling with his companion? And some say that who was this companion the end of Soraka.
Left behind here people.
get tired of answering questions. No need to get out into each other
So the idea that the karate Sam was saying.
So this man who could have been around was teaching Musashi, salaam, there are things that people understand. And there are things that we won't understand and why they happen. But we turn them back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you radiate Allah, who we look to the divine guidance, we hear the stories of the people of the past, and we hold tight to this to things that are likely to us, he gave us clarity, he gave us guidance and other people of the past, after he says
he says two words, or two.
And Allah wants to forgive you. A lot chooses the third thing on this list wants a lot of three things, clarity, guidance, and he wants us to be forgiven, won't allow
halki A lot has to suppose that he's pointing out here, two attributes that he's saying to us are these if you're taking notes, as he's the one who is all mighty and all able to do so one might feel like we're in lost, oh, this 1 billion Muslim woman who is lost in fighting because I agree here and you pray here, and you have a mustache and item. A loss of data says to us that he has the ability to overcome all of these things. But what is the second attribute that Allah subhanaw taala talks about? What is the second attribute as
anyone can give me hacking? what's the what's the literal translation that you have?
wise, okay, so within wisdom, let's take this word, even. Let's open it for a second, a lot. From the word hacker ama, Hakeem also has the has the connotation or the definition of authority. So Allah subhanaw taala, has two characteristics in this one name, not only is he wise, but he has the authority to give that wisdom Does that make sense? One of you might be more knowledgeable you are you are more knowledgeable in Islam than I am. But right now, if you began to speak, someone might say, look, you didn't come from the US. But someone would say something to you, you don't have the macom to speak, or when an elders around, you might feel more wise, but they're not meant to speak,
you're meant to wait a lot is the only one who has both characteristics. At the same time, he is wise. And so when these calamities happen, and when the Muslim coma is not at the state that we want it to be, then we realize a lot. So God has the wisdom and the authority to do this. He is cleansing us through His means. And he says,
so quickly, can someone tell me that three things have been lost?
What were the three things you want?
He wanted clarity, or guidance
to the path of the previous people, which is guidance and
love and forgiveness. So its clarity, its guidance and forgiveness. And then he says he is unhappy. The next sentence I think grammar students here in the states it's become, it's become a fashion everyone loves grammar.
You have one young boy increases ability. In grammar. What do you put first, or ism you put the verb first, worrisome first. In Arabic grammar, here's something for you to know. You always put the verb first, right? So those of you who are studying a law saying legal law, a law once is that correct grammatical statement. But to catch the attention of the ATO, you switch the verb and you put it second. So in the second ayah, which you're looking at, and one of the young people read to me just the first two words, what are the first two words of the next is just after Allah says, He wants these things?
have the three things he wants for mankind.
And now he says a lot once before it was once a lot and there was a list of three things. Now Allah subhanaw taala change the verb pattern, and now he puts a love first and of the three things clarity, which is the Quran guidance, which is the tsunami of love and forgiveness, which we
will walk up to
love us brothers and sisters. Why would he pick guidance? Why would he pick guidance? Why would he say yes, you should learn more and then
said I love my creature all of a
sudden, the prophet peace be upon him said, the believer or the slave of a law should know the creation of a law should know that Allah subhana wa tada loves him 70 times greater than his mother love. So the woman that you peed on her face, the only creature This is the only creature in history. If I walk up to one of the young mates and I smack him in the face and say, I like you. What is he gonna do? I like you, too. I like to do this way back. But this is the only creature who for nine months of these nine months, I would say about five and a half months you kept punching, kicking her and what did she do? She called people and said, Come see the baby, the baby's moving.
And this is on the inside of a womb where there are where there's a stomach where there are organs, she can find the people to say, Look,
my baby's punching me. And one day my baby will spit on me. And one day my baby will grow up and say mom, you don't understand me. And Allah says He loves us 70 times greater than this way.
And the last panel mozzarella is the one who loves to forgive us. So in this we take the narration of the loss of a lot of them. And we ask what is it that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants from us? It is that we turn to him and say a lot. I've made the mistake. Not by hung out with my friends that my friends are bad not I did something wrong because someone made me but a lot I am we
got a coup de de Lyonne arona Shah, De Niro and Tammy
Lima, so lucky to contrast all of our ones from us is to humble ourselves, not to put our mind above the law of love humble, ask Allah for forgiveness and do your best on that, at that home plate. At that age, do your best and allow forgive the rest. But when you
get to be your own,
even if it means
we need to follow to obey, to put yourself in line with William W. Nash.
Now this is where I'm going to take my respectful leave from my elders. And I'm going to speak a little bit more directly to our youth, Wyatt, una Shahada, and those people who worship not China, but the generals who are there on the internet, the people who worship them, William W. Una Shahada, and when all the singers and all the rappers tell you come take my hand, give me all of you tonight. This is $1 with severe inertia, they're telling you, look, you don't need to be young and live free. Right now. Isn't that what our friends in the West love to say? I'd be free living young and wild and free. This clean this dialogue is a call to bother Wyatt.
Because not only have you ever realized when you get close to Islam, you start praying to Allah subhanaw taala you start treating a lot like he does love you as he does. Then all of a sudden the people around you who don't pray, what happens? They get a rash. They get very uncomfortable. Now youyou don't get all religious. Just don't stop praying. You don't need to do all of this stuff. What happened to you before you change, you became a zealot, you became very Islamic. So those who don't have comfort in their own life, they start to engage and they start to tell you come hang out with us. Come see life. come enjoy yourself where
you may land
and they want you to fall into the greatest issues and the greatest.
So in this we have two sides of the coin to accept every brother in this room every sister who hears my voice can say But brother if Allah loves us so much, how can we make mistakes? This is the idea that you need to realize them remember, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us if a human being this is the Prophet Muhammad Salaam, if anyone has a small bottle me I'll do it like this.
This is how my teacher explained it to me and this is how his teacher explained it to me.
The prophets of Allah audio Salaam say you came to a law and you filled the entire heavens and the earth with sins. So the shift to get a glass of water and he said this
is one sin. This is even better. She actually took a glass of water. And he said, this is a sin. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the common space. This occupies the province of Olam audio and someone said, Imagine we covered all of the ground of the earth with the sins and started piling them on top. And on top of every cup was one thing until the sin scratched the throne of loss of Hanwha darada of law says, if my sleeve came to me, asking for forgiveness,
why the Bureau and he came to me with asking for forgiveness way to Bali. What would Allah do? You would forgive all of these things. And he would tell the angels as if this Sims had never happened last time what Allah also says to us, and this is very hard to translate, so I want you to try to understand these words. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a loss of Hiawatha when a believer opens his hands and says a lot, I want a lot of fields, shy
to give the person to the person who put his hands back down and not give him what he wants. When a person puts his hands in front of an idol in front of an idol. The angels bring the bar to Allah and say this was made to an item and Allah subhana wa tada says, but he has nobody else to ask for courtesy.
So when we raise our hands to Allah, one week from Ramallah, and say, Allah, were to
love me, bring me into your folder perspective. Let me feel the compassion of this book. And Alas, dada only says one simple instruction to us. That when we recite the Quran, when we say, See
all other ones from us, open his book, read his book. And while we read his book, take the narration from the sound books of Haiti. When one recites for an I read this for the first time and understood it last week, had to read it again and again, the province of the law Madiba Sallam told us when it comes to the love of a law, he said, when a person reads Dakota,
he is like a prophet without revelation. When a person reads Quran, he is like a prophet, just without direct communication from Allah. This is the macom the status that Allah gives us the chance to have, but every night when we hang out with our boys and Xbox, and we hang out and do anything, but for
that we choose something else. So Allah subhanaw taala gave us a chance to raise our hands to read his book to become closer to him. And then in the third eye, which is completely the opposite of what everyone thinks about Islam, but you're going to read it from all angles. And tell me tell me the next word that the next is only three I only read four lines.
What was the next one?
You read the law again, a loved one something so what is it that a loved one's after forgiving us giving us Blue Island so now?
A washed Panama dalla says to us, you read Do
coffee or is coffee?
Very light, right? When you when you have a cloth, and a plot is cut. It's very breezy. Right? Very breezy. When you can hold a cloth up and it's light. It's easy to wear a lesson at the local coffee farm. He wants Islam to be healthy, easy to follow. Pray. Try not to eat these things. Hold your tongue. Remember the advice of a Buddha or the Law of One minute brothers to advice. This is a vulva. Just to give you an idea of who Abubakar Dada is the province of love why it was so upset. What about
if the deeds of the oma were placed on one side, and the deeds of the loved one more than the other
wheat of deeds would be happy. There is a narration and we know this to be true the narration that engender depending on your level in Genoa of Lost Planet Allah will speak to you whoever attended the hook but today, the lowest level of the people have definitely been a lot of once a week at Juma Allah speaks to them on Juma and as the levels go up to people get closer to Allah till the highest level of people agenda.
They have a home with four
Windows, the window on the right side of the house, it only has one function. You know, those big balcony windows would have a big window sill with pillows, that the smaller. That window on the right side of the wall only has one function is for the people of the hi Jenna to sit and see a loss.
But Abu Bakar of the Obama is the only one in Ghana. A narration tells us that allows me to him alone. And Allah subhanho wa Taala would give him more calm and respect alone. So what did abubaker the loved one say to us? He said control two things, what's between your lips, and what's between your legs. And Jim, as
I told you,
is found is that simple. All we need to do is curtail this and relax the other one. And Allah will give us that.
So you read a lot. And you have FIFA and
and unless as we're putting God who created us a lot so it says
my brothers from behind the clouds behind the partition. What does life mean? take a gander. Sorry, from behind.
The ones who came to the box seats, right? We we did that a lot. From Good luck, no pun intended. I wasn't saying anything about you guys. We're just saying, you know, like, we Allah says human beings were created weak. In this we realize and I bring my talk to a conclusion here. If Allah subhana wa tada didn't love us, if Allah did not have an element of compassion towards us, we wouldn't have known about him
knowing about gender. And as far as the fear component comes into play, stop looking at whether music is halal or haram. start asking yourself would a lot like me to do this? start asking yourself whether what you look at on the internet? Well, I think it's okay, no one's would it make a loss?
And what you see two, two between each other, would it be collapse?
Once you ask these questions, some of the things that we take so heavy about Islam, they don't become that difficult. I spoke about a lot of for a few moments, I spoke about my life for a few moments, I gave myself a right. And I did not fear Allah subhanho wa Taala because he is mean but I fear displeasing and loss.
If you thought there was something you could take from today's talk, it's not because the speaker is a good already, because we're onto perfect.
And I could have said nothing but just said, you read the blog.
voice to body while log was nice and happy while you read to body while you read
it under me To my knowledge, you need to love and you have
always going to be that weak person. And that would have been enough. But because Allah gave us some time and some entertainment, we explain those words. So if you are going to ask questions now please feel free to ask. And if you're going to ask a follow up question. I'll answer it. As I answered here. I won't get into long debates. So I did I know that you have scholars 100 times better, you allowed some young person to share thoughts from the west coast, the west side of town. All I'm saying to you as your brother is if we don't carry the swamp in a beautiful like fashion. I'm telling you, mmm, Jay Z and Kanye West will have already eaten up their children. So if you don't
have the time to sit down with your children, tell them these are the things that are probably not healthy. And as
I used to do, you know, two generations after the companions, they used to hold the hands of their kids, and they would walk into the marketplace. adults. Just give me your attention for these 10 seconds. For those of you who think sheltering your child is being Islamic way to generations after companionship. They used to hold the hands of their kids go into the marketplace. And by that time they were singing girls and they were the Brittany's and the magazine covers that we have today slightly different.
These things existed, and they would hold the hands of their young children and say this current, is this good. And what does this child say? No.
It's dirt. So when you walk through your Tesco and you get to the magazine aisle, young as long as your children are young, saying you want mommy to wear this.
You will build a disgust in your child's heart. No, that's disgusting. You tell yourself
Is this the type of woman who could take care of your children?
A child will say this. And when you explore these things because I don't know if anyone noticed, but these eyes are actually talking about sexuality, desires that we discuss. When Allah says weakness, he says he created a suite that we have enough to go on. So if you don't discuss these topics, yes, Allah loves us, but the human being also loves other things. Remember, Mashallah, inshallah, we love those things, too. So if you don't explain these things to your children, and don't talk about them, then your child alone might love your child, but your child won't connect, develop a love with Allah subhanaw taala. Before I go completely off topic, I need to say something on my own, it came up on
our travel here.
If your child is enrolled in a PE class, you know, physical education, or your child goes for swimming and whatnot. It's a very strong problem in the United States. And it's
the eyes of adults falling on young children, their hands touching them. Make sure your child that he's taking us he or she is taking a swimming class, or is taking some type of physical education where they have to change their clothes. Please find out in what environment that happens. In Islam. We don't disrobe. God, you know, it's a guy thing, the locker room mentality. We don't disrobe in front of each other. This is something Allah doesn't love. And if you think about the grand scheme of the universe, the universe
another exam didn't miss some major thing in Islam, he ate from the tree. And after he ate from the tree, did he go to hell? Did he get punished? Did someone cut off his hand? Did he get whipped and flog What happened?
But before he was Yes, he was sent down, a part of his brain reacted the part of his brain that recognizes it's called the appropriate receptor, right. So when you close your eyes, you can feel your hands and feet moving. This idea that you know where your toes are, when you're standing also means you know where your lower self is when you're standing. So what is shameful, it became apparent. So this is how sensitive this the genital and the private area of the male and female. So if we don't extend explain this to our kids, I'm telling you, MTV will and they'll say be large and in charge. And if you
don't teach your children about this, or is one thing that a lot doesn't love in the law is
a lot loves us, let's just act like He loves us. When we act that way, we will receive the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. I say this at the end of every talk, I take the permission of our elders. Anything that was set incorrectly is my mistake. It's not the mistake of the master. The master didn't know what I was going to talk about. They made a pretty flyer stuck my name on top of it, and conveniently wrote USA
which means please come
bless us. So any mistakes are my own misrepresentation. Maybe you didn't like the translation of a word. This is my own fault. any mistakes are from myself and I pray that Allah, Allah blesses us and keeps us together as a community. Ramadan is around the corner, don't take this as a motivational talk. This was the talk that if you love Allah, and Allah subhanho wa Taala wrote you a letter. And that letter is 632 pages long. Read the letter every day. Because when you meet people who love Jesus, what do they read all the time? They read what they think is from inside. We don't think it's family. Sorry, sir. We don't think that is from Allah subhanaw taala we know it is and whether we
believe in it or not, that you can keep up with it.
So let's why not stop pointing fingers at other this from Yvonne. Make an intention to read for and if you can't read it,
completely make an intention for 10 minutes at 10 parts. If you can do 10 parts. I'm not sure why. Because you're not eating or drinking. Maybe you can do five, but do it with translation, basic transition. And when you hit a road bump an ayah that says find them and kill them wherever they are. Don't be a genius and try to figure out yourself write it down. Go as someone who's read the Quran multiple times so that they can come. For anyone who doesn't know how to read at all. Is it okay to do the thing.
Anyone who doesn't know how to read at all wants to learn that we want to learn some basic vocabulary, you can write down l to R q.com. Learn to Read or en.com it's an open site. It's free for everyone. We're praying that every Muslim who says Muslim on wall can at least read the last book. So this is our intention. Please do your best to find the book of Allah. Allah does not belong was it
I've got a couple of questions here.
And also, if there's any questions from the floor, feel free to ask.
Finished these two.
Whoever asked the first question
What was the name of that book?
okay. I get to transition.
yasir Qadhi shake yasir Qadhi from the States. He has a lecture series. It's online. It's called advocates of the student of knowledge. That's number one. Number two for everybody. This is mandatory. And I think Muslims love to have this book in their house, but they don't have the original.
Imam Bukhari wrote
four books in his lifetime. We all have the last book, the most complicated and advanced manuscript of ever written history, and we love carrying it around saying copier fast, exotic.
Right, Mashallah. There's another book he wrote amazing. Other
other other advocates and manners in Islam give that one a shave here.
In the UK, his name is Teresa amatola.
He wrote he has the only English commentary on other homophones and it's only it's a wonder it's in audio, the audio version. So that's an etiquette of the student of knowledge for you inshallah, and because you asked the question and weren't shy, I'll make the province a lot.
A lot more. A lot more. Dean will army. Allah give you understanding of religion? Because you asked a good question.
How can you get rid of laziness? there? This is a very interesting topic laziness.
It's an entire topic. First thing I will ask you to do is make a blog that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam made a single day Mohammed would allow me to draw every day Can we try? Everyone press your tongue to the top of the mouth la w don't say Allah. Allah law.
won have already
won both leave
every day. Oh, a lot. A lot of them makini rutabaga or a lot of our beloved creator, I seek refuge with you from Nina the IBC. One Cassady, one geovany was hard on me and I said it in a whole different order. Were you praying to Allah save me from laziness from being a coward from being senile, from being cheap? And I miss wonder, make this blog constantly and maybe it's on video so they can take it?
Now you asked a question, so I'm going to answer it very directly.
Besides staying away from activities that will make you lazy, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
explained to us how sin constantly sitting makes you lazy. One of the things that we do is when we sin we don't realize we're gonna say Dr. Medina when you sit and watch a three and a half hour bollywood bollywood movie and you say, I'm gonna go read Parana Babu, you're gonna sit on your tail for the next three and a half hours. Second thing that we need to realize the problem of audio selam spoke about food. Food is like it's like cement for the stomach. Yes, we all love to eat and guess when I go out I still get my evening meals. I do eat quite a bit of vanilla. But when it comes time to study, try your best to follow the suit numbers to the laws of law, body and settlement try to
eat a little bit less. Now if it's okay with you. I'm going to go outside of the normal balance. There's proven research
extensive research that our use of plastic, the plastic that we use, and even the cheaper plastics constantly using plastic regenerates the higher senses of human beings. So try your best to eat natural and consistent foods. Try your best to stay away from biochemically engineered foods. When you constantly have a can of Coke, which which has high fructose corn syrup in it. It's not actual sugar. Do you know what they do to make high fructose corn syrup. They take a strain of E coli or cancer, they break natural sugar strain, and then they make a feature. These are things that make us lazy.
Whether you believe it or not for the young brothers smoking makes you lazy. hookah is the same as smoking. It makes you lazy. The young brother will argue No brother to stay up.
Smoking keeps me happy.
These are things that make us lazy how to get rid of them make a schedule. Endurance is something that the body can learn to tolerate. I met a Navy SEAL a long, long time. I never encouraged this. But he sleeps six, six times a day he takes a 45 minute nap. That's it. That's his entire sleeps. There's no like sleep at night. It's just every six hours or something every four hours he takes a 45 minute nap he's okay. The body needs to be conditioned. From the handwriting. This looks like a brother's handwriting. If you need to get rid of laziness, try your best to be physically fit as well. staying away from sin, trying your best to increase a god remembering the laws of the province
How do you get rid of laziness? I'm going to answer that question by knocking on these questions. Can you recite the IRS?
This is adorable and it's definitely a sister, sister handwriting.
For my five year old daughter, inshallah, I will do my best to recite this ayah the I have
to recite in a moment my sister inshallah, I want to know your opinion about.
The question has to do and I know where in the UK and my dad told me not to talk about it. So I'm going to slowly move over for those brothers and sisters. And I'm going to include you as someone who's been around the block. I've been around the block with a lot of Islamic organizations that you see me teaching mulgrave you see me teaching with vegana sometimes I'm teaching with people of Atlanta. So I teach with a lot of people. I also studied for a long period of time with those groups of people who can't get your pillow from
my lobby comfortable and
I also stayed with a group of people who thought it's okay, really.
People who strive to establish the Islamic State, the concept of
for those What is my opinion, my opinion is a loss
of service who that will be without the
island equally. So it's not who becomes dominant upon all things. My issue with us young people striving for Hidaka tilaka, right, is get to further further in the mustard. There's your doctor. And I know you're like, Oh, wait, this guy's throwing the curveball. No, I'm not. This was sent to me by a Jewish rabbi. He said that the the number of people praying budget equals the number of jumaan
support for young people I understand. I'm just as young as you and it would be great to strive for. And have a I have this German that it would be great. I believe you. But can we do five things on an individual level first reading the mustard, that is the this is the pinnacle, right? in in in a non Islamic State. The mustard becomes the Army or the central location, the capital, and then the bunkers becomes the main headquarters. Why don't we spend our nights here, comparing the five Tango brother I'm in school, in school, then do the second bright, which is not just only printing the mustard, but
so many others come to me we have to do this. We have to get the protest that petitions and that's wonderful. I'll sign your petition with all my tools and fingers. Can you recycle
in our house?
Now not Oh, brother, what's going to happen by reading my beloved brothers and sisters. Everything happens after the recitation.
So for those of you who are being lured into this and I'm using a word board into all of these other teachers are deviant and all of these others before you get into that path, come closer to the dean and when the last panel I thought I will as a Gemma as a body. People will come to us
Given that we will be able to move forward from there, that is just my humble request as someone who learn these things, I'm not talking from outside, I have all the pamphlets in my car, I used to edit some of them, right? I was the kid hanging out, or I was doing those things, and telling me after a few years, you realize we're young, we have a lot of emotion, we have a lot of energy. Let's go to some shelters. Let's do what was the loss of a loved one it was selected in the first 25 years of his life, took care of the orphan didn't tell he didn't peel out is, as you know, is already running from the mustard. He came and he served his community before they saw him as a little lost.
How can we concentrate in solid to avoid
worldly thoughts? How can we concentrate in Salah to avoid world the thoughts number one, make fresh will do for the prayer. This is my recommendation. And when making will do make will do the way the prophets have a lot of audio someone, if you notice, we use a lot of water to wash our hands. I don't know what you all do is you drink half a gallon of water. But when you wash your face, we do against the scenario with water. And to do this purpose, a lot of the most water by the way, how much water did you use when
you could feel his coffee is coffee, that was how much water to use. And at the at the last step, he would take a full cup of handling, he's washing his hands full and then he would throw it on his face, it helps to refresh. So you try using freshwater and make stressful then the four components. Number one, the vocabulary of salaat is mandatory. When you say a law.
It does not mean a life is great. It means a couple of means greater. So when you realize you're saying Allah is greater than whatever I was just doing, it's a state of mind. It's a state of meditation. Number one is the vocabulary number two is that we the salon, whenever you see us, you know the page and you pucker your lips, and you say adhan dooney la vs alum da da da when you look at kind of hurts a little bit right? When you don't pronounce correctly you're not in Salah, you're doing this
right? You cannot enter salon even if you don't know what you're saying. You can't enter until the word is articulated Suba Han Allah bn Allah and where are you when you say Subhana Allah, you are the lowest state that a human being can be and it becomes a use of shares the small couplet when you go into such that your head is lower than your
anatomically, your head is lower than your heart, that it comes to human beings who humbles himself. vocabulary that we will do, and I would finally Most importantly, some people overlook this and elders can definitely think about this. The physical motion of salaat is imperative. Physical motion, sometimes we go for ruku like this, and if you're older, it's different. But imagine a 63 year old man up to the age of 60 was able to make war till his back was completely flat. Right? So this is something we don't think about. I noticed a lot of brothers who line up with me or line up to pray. You kind of I don't know. It's like you're doing Valley right there. They're not on their
feet. And I'm not using this as a comical part. The force has this a heel, okay, think of it as your heel and then the digits of your fingers the same way every part should be touching the ground. You're giving yourself to Allah subhanaw taala. So it's a state of mind. It's a state of mind. So if the vocabulary you have the way you do the pastor, and I always recommend the Sooners are there as a practice, run. Pray your Sunnah and then you kind of get through all your worldly thoughts, sisters and brothers. And then when the fog comes, you're like I'm ready. It's not a scrimmage. it's game time.
What methods can we teach our kids on how to love it the love of Allah subhana wa tada for your children. This very children cannot love Allah. Tada immediately. The way to cultivate love in the hearts of your children.
And it's by the practice of law you teach your children to love me to love my family and Pilates.
There's a heavy thing given me a long heavy on the description of pursuit of loss of a loved one. Children love characters. That's why the children are staring at me through the glass, the light characters every night describe how long your kids his beard. Can you imagine this would last a long day some severe started here and here. You know the big set that
like full speed
shoulder length to shoulder length. You don't see many people with a beard like that. All of his teeth were exactly the same. And the whites of his eyes were completely white. He was not called he was not short. But his chest had a very broad, he had a nice broad chest. And when he walked, it looked as if he was coming down a flight of stairs, he didn't heavily walk on his heels, he walked comfortably on the balls of his feet, it looks like an angel floating. Describe the result of loss.
When he spoke, they used to smell must understand the loved one who lived to the age of 103, who had seen the conquest of Islam said I never smelled a must a fragrance better than this. What?
Can you fathom that? Can you comprehend that? And what do kids do at the end of the TV show? Mom, what do kids do? it again money to be destroyed or lost audio and the companions to your children and tell them who gave us
and that and you add the word of loss?
if you Okay, I'm assuming this question.
If you have a sin and it is an intimate way, can Allah subhanaw taala forgive you? You can clap if I'm correct, but why would you?
You know any? Okay, the first thing is are there there are no things that Allah subhana wa Taala cannot forgive? And what when, when a person who worships idols becomes Muslim, all of that becomes good deeds. Stop listening to music. How can you stop this music? It is like alcohol music is a drug use it plays in your ear. Number one, if you want to stop listening to music, first step stop using headphones, stop using headphones. By the way English, stop using headphones. And headphones are designed specifically with one thing in mind there are three bones in your ear in the smallest and staples, they vibrate differently. When you hear when you hear the constant vibration, it secretes a
hormone in your brain. That's the equivalent to dopamine. It's like crack cocaine. headphones are what they do. It directly feeds in you guys never saw the matrix. Like why am I having to tell you about you remember this, in the back of the head, it was the same exact thing. Just stick it in here. It's a it's a IV of say, Dr. Schaefer, font IP. That's the first way to do it next week is start to limit the time in which you listen to music, right? Just how that Sahaba left alcohol, you can leave music in the same way. Okay, I'm only going to listen to it at this time, I'm only going to listen to it when these people are around. And really sincerely Let it be around the parent, let
it be around an elder and then very specifically as Mohammed Al Sharif, from around the world has said, Be sure what you listen to, most of the music we listen to today has very strong lyrics with a Shake what your mama gave you has not passed any fatwas on what to say that back yourself you get it in England, I thought you guys a little bit sharper. So music is something like alcohol tapered off, inshallah It will be fine. Also, do not go gung ho those people who decide to stop using the music immediately, at the end of the day, that has nothing to say.
if we read for the deceased, all the prophets
are read by a student, the blessing goes to the teacher who unread by a son for his death goes to goes to his family goes to his dad, because he's taught him to do this. But the concept and remember, it's hard to break cultural norms. But the concept of us all we are on and then
I'm not sure exactly what the word is. It's not something we see. It's not something that we see in our tradition. So we I leave the question that that I'm waving back at.
Okay, do you think that men and women are equal?
How well do you believe
that men and women are
reading this is my beloved sister who men have one degree higher above women?
I'm sorry to burst your bubble brothers. That doesn't mean that doesn't mean we're better than women. That means we have one more rate of responsibility. On the day of judgment, a wife can come and say, Look, he told me not to work.
And you will be out you'll be off the hook on this. And a man that I have. My my my the Master said to do. No, it doesn't work. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has any and another translation, it is for audio, on demand to go for jihad, and it's not a little utility on the woman. So how do you ever you understand this? Yes, I do.
See that men and women are equal, if not American, equal none of this business? Because I will say no, they're not equal at all. Why don't all of us men get up and protest that we can't have babies, I don't understand why we don't do that. We should all start doing that, too. It's very jolly concept. It's a very jolly concept that we're all different body parts. So we need to understand that concept a little bit deeper, but Allah has created us in one move minima, one movement. So in actions were the same.
rank and in the word up now, there's another idea that she's talking about.
of the sides concern is this. If you can just look up the word Potawatomi. Look up this word and understand that it means Hey, follow up, you have to take care of the women. Men have mis constructed this and this is what happens when we don't really understandable I'm not just as translated from Arabic to English. Be careful in using translation.
I want to know what your words Oh,
To start level signup, again, I want to say at the end of this for anyone, my right or ranked as a student of knowledge is not scholar. So if I said something about Islamic State or something that threw you off, that's the opinion of a young person who's been around the block. That's it. So we asked Allah, Allah to bless us to keep us clean. Are there any other questions?
You all understood the energy, that recitations tea, then you will
die as 282 only reciting it because of the importance of next week. I'm hoping to answer that you all get used to I don't like this concept of the body soft recites and we watch during a time of every generation when someone decided to do what everyone did they look right because that's what the reciter for on desperate he looks so that you can do your best. I know how you have this on your phone, but you're not used to using this. Your phone for these things. It's either 282 correct.
My American accent sorry. is yes. 282 years
