00:01:03 --> 00:01:28

always and forever We begin with the praise of Allah subhana wa tada we testify with firmness with conviction, with strength of faith that none is worthy of worship other than Allah. And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his worshipping slave and final messenger. I continually remind myself and you have tequila zoa gel, the consciousness and the awareness of Allah the Most High

00:01:29 --> 00:01:48

to the capacity that he is deserving of us. And I invite myself in you to live a life that is adjusted in submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala willfully and intentionally, so that when we returned to him, we find better than what we have received in our worldly life.

00:01:49 --> 00:02:02

And this has been the aim of those who have come before us. And we pray that it remains so for the generations that we bring forward into this worldly life as part of our progeny and our heritage. Allahumma Amin.

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

It's my pleasure once again to join my brothers at the Abu hurayrah center. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah makes the short time that we spend with each other in these few minutes before salata a shot, that they are moments of Rama, and that the tranquility of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, the Sakina descends upon us, and that Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah mentions us with those better than we mentioned him, we are diligently,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33


00:02:34 --> 00:02:35


00:02:36 --> 00:03:17

seems like a contentious way to start a talk. And you've had to Al Hamdulillah well versed speakers before me speak about some of the challenges, especially for our younger generations, young Muslims living here in Toronto in Canada. And I want to really take more of a spiritual perspective. And the challenges that you face today really, are the similar challenges that were experienced even by those who were better than us even the Sahaba. One of the problems and I think one of the challenges that we experienced is when we open a book

00:03:19 --> 00:03:38

or are you open a book of Sierra or Hades? And you read names of these amazing people? Abu hurayrah for the Allahu anhu, who this century is named after a man who accounted hundreds 1000s of Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:39 --> 00:04:15

You're in awe mesmerized. You hear about Omar radi Allahu Allahu Akbar. Khalid even al Walid say for love the sword of Allah azza wa jal, Hamza Ali, or the Allahu anhu, Vitaly Isha Fatima model, the law known, you hear of these names, and it's almost as if they're, you know, they're legendary mythical individuals. And what we sometimes forget, is that each and every one of the Sahaba struggled with faith.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:22

The cane points in their time in their life, coming to faith was a hurdle.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:59

When you think of Omar, think of Omar as well radi Allahu anhu as he came to a point to accept faith, he had to choose a law or his family, a law or his society, a law or his people. It was a heavy decision. And we know you know, we have this. We're always told the story. Roman red suit Taha, he walked into his sister's home, he hit her he was hurting her husband. And you know, they read sort of fall haha Bob was hiding and

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

Allah opened his heart he became Muslim now,

00:05:03 --> 00:05:28

this is a short section of the transition of Omar radi Allahu anhu. coming to faith. There were moments when Omar was sitting in Dar najwa, the Council, the council, men's area, and all these big people have for icesat another optional Harith I will How can we be Sham and will eternal mahira.

00:05:29 --> 00:05:34

So highly librium they're sitting there, Mr. rhodiola, Hanuman

00:05:36 --> 00:05:36

and they're debating.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:52

Hash is coming. We don't want anyone to know and hear the words of Muhammad Sallallahu it listen. What are we going to do? What do we say to the people to stop them from meeting this man Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

Some of them said

00:05:55 --> 00:05:56

he's a magician.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:36

So Omar interjects, because remember the Allahu anhu he always had the personality of justice. He said, Man who are beside him, he's not a magician. Well, I became called the original, a Sahara, young, young persona. We know how they tie knots and and make incantations and put, you know, chemicals and he's not that Salalah when he was in college, and then he's a poet, called catalana share. We learned poetry, we've memorized it, his rage, then we know it's beginning to its end malware be shared, whenever we shy.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:40

So what do you want us to say your man

00:06:42 --> 00:06:43

doesn't answer.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:56

He's defending the profits, I sell them not out of faith, but out of a sense of justice. So a lot reveals the end of surah and haka.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:13

These are the this is the first moment that Armand now is going to pay attention to the Quran. And Allah subhanaw taala speaks to Omar through the revelation of saltan. haka Lama who will be totally shy.

00:07:15 --> 00:07:20

He is not a poet kalila mata karoon

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

Can you please move your car?

00:07:28 --> 00:07:51

license plate a Zed p b. 402. It's a Pontiac Vibe in Sharla. All right, so I'm always hearing this who thought he's walking by all of a sudden the profits I sell them near the Kaaba. He received revelation and recites these are yet and who hears it, aroma. Everything that they were hearing

00:07:52 --> 00:07:53

is speaking to him.

00:07:55 --> 00:08:01

There's almost say, Oh, this is my call. I have to believe now. I was defending him and now it's the truth. No.

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

He goes home angry. How could I defend him? sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:08:10 --> 00:08:28

How? I'm going to kill him. Why does a woman want to kill the Prophet is not anger. Emma wants to do it out of honor. He says a lot Julian Bellagio. If I kill Mohammed's I sell them they're gonna kill me. I'm willing to die for my people.

00:08:29 --> 00:08:47

So I'm going to kill Mohammed's I sell them and I'm going to go to his tribe and say, here I am. Kill me and let this fitness end. I want everyone to be happy. This was Omar, Allahu anhu. And on his way, then the story of his sister begins Fatima.

00:08:49 --> 00:08:56

There was a struggle, a battle within himself, learning desiring the truth. What's the difference?

00:08:57 --> 00:09:32

between the moment or model here is the yacht in pseudo Baja, which are not to him. They're not for him directly. And the yacht of salt and hopper which were for him in that incident? Why were those verses that are about him that he heard that he knew and should recognize? Why doesn't he believe and Surah Taha which are not about him, not direct him he believes. This is the first challenge that faces you and I Today we are disconnected from the

00:09:34 --> 00:09:37

USA brother. Yeah, I memorize the Quran. That's good.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:43

It's not about how much you know, brother. Yeah, I go to Duke see.

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

I do.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:49

I read the Quran often. My parents teach me

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

disconnect from the Koran

00:09:55 --> 00:10:00

is that the heart doesn't receive it. Now I want you to hear this.

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

Are you in Surah Kahf? Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're in the hula, Allah makes a vow. Surely this Quran is a reminder leemon it is only for the only one who will receive its benefit. Leeman can Allah who call

00:10:22 --> 00:10:29

to the one who has a heart, all of us have hearts that's beating circulatory call

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

is speaking about

00:10:33 --> 00:10:38

this proverbial spiritual heart. Lehman can help Canada who

00:10:40 --> 00:11:34

our customers were who were Shaheed or two, the one who throws an ear at it, meaning gives it undivided attention while assuming its truthfulness, not critical, wanting to find this dissonance and disturbance in it. Those three conditions open your heart to receive the origin. And therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and we see this in our oma today and then the times before us and will remain in our own in our own mother's a disease. What is this disease, that there are people who recite the Quran Yoko Ono Quran when I blew Hannah JIRA home, but the Quran doesn't go through their throat doesn't pass through their throat, meaning it doesn't come down to their

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


00:11:37 --> 00:11:56

The Prophet describes that there will be people come out on emammal Buhari to Luna salata combi Salatin, there will be people when you see them pray, the way they look, the way they're dressed, the way they're humble, the way they cry, the way they appear. If you see them,

00:11:58 --> 00:12:16

and see how they pray and how often they pray, and the magnificence of the outer shell of prayer, you're gonna look at them so humble, you're gonna look and compare your prayer to them, and you're gonna think you're lost. You're gonna say look at how they pray. What I'm doing is nothing.

00:12:18 --> 00:12:26

What una suyama come to see me and you're gonna see their fasting and compare your fasting and you're gonna think you're lost.

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

But you're better than them.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:30


00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

not by the outer Sala

00:12:34 --> 00:12:36

it's not by the days of fasting

00:12:38 --> 00:12:39

it's by the heart

00:12:40 --> 00:12:44

when the heart is not connected to the on

00:12:45 --> 00:13:04

you find what we see in our oma today. How do I know you're not connected to the Quran? Here I have out of here we have Arabs. I don't mean to embarrass anyone. I can say to someone who was born out up I say to him Tell me Yeah. What does well are the RT Baba mean?

00:13:07 --> 00:13:12

I don't know. Why don't you know? Jani? Callum Kabir

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

it's big words.

00:13:44 --> 00:13:45


00:13:47 --> 00:13:47


00:13:48 --> 00:13:54

leave that up. You're gonna say brother I'm not up. I am Pakistani

00:13:55 --> 00:13:56

and a Somali

00:13:57 --> 00:14:01

I am Guyanese. I'm Canadian.

00:14:02 --> 00:14:12

I don't know this language. I'm going to say you've learned in Africa in Africa the shortest route in the Quran three verses you never thought to understand its meaning.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:37

How often do we stand in Sala and say not not someone leads us but I'm leading myself. So what what should I do I choose the one I know best. So I stand and I say what do I say Kalia? You help Cafiero easy call in our financial health the short sudras call Robin fella

ninja Rhema HELOC

00:14:40 --> 00:14:41


00:14:42 --> 00:14:59

What does this mean? Why don't you know 510 versus you couldn't open the hole on in your mother language that you do understand and understand it better. Why? Because your heart is not attached to the Quran. So who do you blame you blame others you say you

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

To share so they're giving talks and they are not improving as a community.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:37

The Koran seeks you once you, but you have to want it and therefore the prophets I seldom said as an Imam Muslim reports, the or an a shed do shy enter Fallujah, the Quran is the quickest thing to leave your hand. It's like a camel, that in the middle of the desert, if you lose it, you're gonna go thirsty, you're gonna go hungry, you're not gonna have a ride out of that hot, airy desert. You have to hold on to it. And if you let go of the Koran, it's gone.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:46

So that's the first challenge. We have disconnected from the Quran, Allah tells you

00:15:47 --> 00:16:03

the reason of the Orion leotard, that baru that they recount and seek to learn and to ramp remind and revive and put into practice, it's versus this is the intent

00:16:04 --> 00:16:05

of the

00:16:06 --> 00:16:07

second challenge

00:16:11 --> 00:16:14

is that to hate our belief,

00:16:17 --> 00:16:21

at times, is not a part of our religious study.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:41

If I there's a call to toe hate, when you say la ilaha illAllah the word itself has gravity, the machinery keen, they understood the gravity of the word, what it would entail that to say it It wasn't just something you say and pass along.

00:16:42 --> 00:17:30

Till he begins there are seven schrute categories prerequisites to sincere true belief in Allah. The first of them is alien knowledge. Our purpose here today is to begin with that knowledge fact I Lem and the hula, hula llama, have certain knowledge that there is none worthy of worship of Allah. Second to knowledge is yaqeen certainty. When you become certain of what you know, it's no longer just information, but it's practice knowledge, the difference between people who have gathered statements about Islam and the Quran, and they have a book in their bookshelf that's called the Orion. And the one who reads it out of certainty, of belief in it is for one person, it's

00:17:30 --> 00:17:33

information for another, it's a document of life.

00:17:36 --> 00:17:37

Where you're clean,

00:17:39 --> 00:17:41

after certainty,

00:17:42 --> 00:17:45

there is acceptance qaboun.

00:17:46 --> 00:18:10

You have to accept ramifications if I've learned something. I know it's the truth. Now I have to accept accepting, I might not be able to do everything, but I accept it for what it is. I don't want to alter it. I don't want to dilute it. I don't want to go blind to one section of it and amplify one part more than the other. No, I accept it.

00:18:12 --> 00:18:19

Fourth, in cleared, submit. And therefore when you submit

00:18:20 --> 00:18:40

it comes after you've accepted your submission to it is an intentional pursuit of pleasing a loss of Hannah want to honor the part of towhead there are times we miss is we say La Isla de la we learn Yes, I know there is Jenna. I want to be a part of it. I believe in the Koran, or I can't do this brother.

00:18:42 --> 00:19:10

It's not in sha Allah, I will try to do this. No, no, I can't do this. We can't do this. There has to be that element of acceptance, putting your head down to the will and the word of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the statements of his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that has to be done with Sid, you have to do that brother. I have to do that, truthfully, between me and Allah.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

So I don't wear hijab, not me.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:16

But you don't wear hijab because your father

00:19:18 --> 00:19:24

you don't learn and come to Koran school because your mother said you have to

00:19:25 --> 00:19:53

know it is such truthfulness to Allah. And that truthfulness. Lee leads to sincerity loss. See, this is this is the progression of a man. This is what Omar passed through. He was learning. He became certain of it, it's the truth. I'm going to have to accept it at some point. Okay, I accept it's the truth inside me. Now I have to submit to it internally and publicly.

00:19:54 --> 00:19:57

Now I have to be truthful in it. It's for Allah

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

subhanho wa Taala

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

And now it becomes a class. truthfulness within the self leads a person to having sincerity with Allah subhana wa Tada. You know what the final level of tawheed is the final category, it's love.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:25

You begin to worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and are attached to Allah, because of love.

00:20:26 --> 00:20:29

You love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam See?

00:20:31 --> 00:20:35

The prophets I seldom says you do not believe.

00:20:36 --> 00:20:49

You do not have complete faith until he Mohammed Salim is more loved by you. Then your father, your mother,

00:20:50 --> 00:20:54

your wife, your children, your grandchildren.

00:20:56 --> 00:20:59

You love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, more than

00:21:01 --> 00:21:02

more than anything?

00:21:04 --> 00:21:05

Can you say that in your heart?

00:21:07 --> 00:21:26

Can you look yourself in the mirror? Don't answer me. look yourself in the mirror, look at yourself, look at your heart. And can you say that you have lived a life and are living a life that demonstrates that you love and prefer Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam to any other living being other than Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:31 --> 00:21:36

challenge it's a challenge. It's the same challenge of those who came before us.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:41

Third and final challenge due to brevity of time

00:21:43 --> 00:21:45

is Who do I follow?

00:21:47 --> 00:21:52

What do I listen to? It's difficult. There's so many opinions.

00:21:54 --> 00:21:55

There's so many learned people.

00:21:57 --> 00:22:01

There's so many influences. How do I find the way

00:22:02 --> 00:22:15

and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he makes it really simple. And I know you'd say probably a heads oversimplify to say this, but this is the word of the Prophet by saying, He says his final legacy of his life, he says,

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

hold on to the book of Allah.

00:22:20 --> 00:22:21

And my sooner

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

and the sooner of

00:22:25 --> 00:22:41

the whole affair or wash it in, meaning the agreement of the Sahaba the things they agreed on, in principle that they were sure of. How do I have no magic bite on to it with your teeth, molar teeth, don't let it go.

00:22:44 --> 00:22:52

How do I do that here in Toronto. Now, in this day and age? What does this mean? What do I know about the sooner?

00:22:53 --> 00:23:09

The sooner My dear brothers and sisters is the easiest way of life. I want you to consider this. Never was the prophets I seldom given a choice between two things that are hidden, except he chose easiest.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:44

Always when it comes to that which is halaal choose the easiest halaal the easiest course some Sahaba they would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One of them was Abdullah idiom in the last one of the great worshipers of our faith at the time of the prophets I send them a beloved now Imran last was a young men and he would look at the prophets I send them to prayer and his habits and it's almost as if he thought I can do a lot more.

00:23:45 --> 00:23:51

So he said and the monk asked him to other people they said in the Hadith ism Bahati

00:23:52 --> 00:24:13

I will not sleep at night every night I will pray another one said every day from morning to metric I will fast another one said I don't have time to get married. I'm gonna have to get a job and an income How am I going to take care of them? No, I need to worship Allah. I'm never going to get married. The Prophet heard this I send them and he said no, no, no bring them to me beat him.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:21

He says in the assume well after I fast and I break my fast.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:38

Well suddenly I pray and I sleep with as a wish to win and Lisa and I had married from your women Salalah What do you send them? Men roll the band sooner at the one who leaves my cinema Felisa me Can't be from me.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:41

You read Allahu

00:24:42 --> 00:24:43

Allah wishes for you ease.

00:24:45 --> 00:25:00

So what do we mean when we say who to follow? Follow those who lead you by the word of a law and the signal is messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Just say you come to me and you ask me a question now.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:10

I'm not a Mufti. I can, I might have heard your question before and read about it. And I give you an answer from what someone before me has said. You don't like it?

00:25:11 --> 00:25:12

You don't like what I said?

00:25:14 --> 00:25:17

Is that a problem? What do you think?

00:25:18 --> 00:25:19

What does the word fatwa mean?

00:25:23 --> 00:25:43

opinion, Allahu Akbar barakallahu. Li, it is opinion. It's for a teacher for a scholar. It is studied opinion, expert opinion. But at the end of the day, it is an opinion. Another expert may have another opinion.

00:25:45 --> 00:26:11

No problem. The moment you blind yourself to anyone else's opinion, and remove the possibility that it could have truth. You have gone over boat, you've gone to the extreme. That's extremism. You can't have that. You can't be inflexible in that sense. Law.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:28

You ask someone and it settles in your heart and you accept it. You asked me a question. I gave you an answer. You said that makes sense. Mashallah, the brother gave a dilla he gave, you know, Chevron of a mean said and, and the answers and he says, Okay.

00:26:30 --> 00:26:40

You see someone doing something contrary to what you know? And you speak to them, and they say, Listen, I've asked about this. I'm happy with what I'm doing as well.

00:26:41 --> 00:26:55

Is it a point of dissension? Can you now say our staff will love this person? He's, he can't be I can't I can't follow this man. I can't be with this man. Is it a point of separation? Now Allah?

00:26:56 --> 00:27:04

Consider you remember how we I began by saying that there were legends that are legends for us in Islam, everyone over the Allahu

00:27:06 --> 00:27:07


00:27:08 --> 00:27:10

katavi Allahu anhu

00:27:11 --> 00:27:16

when he became the Khalifa, do you know what he asked Abu hurayrah to stop doing.

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

Omar said to Abu hurayrah or the Allahu anhu do not narrate anymore Hadith of the Prophet Mohammed.

00:27:28 --> 00:27:29


00:27:30 --> 00:27:41

are you talking about? Brother? Yeah, we have to spread the son of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Yes, we have to. This is the Allahu Allahu

00:27:42 --> 00:27:47

Allahu anhu say to him, don't narrate any more comedies. He did.

00:27:48 --> 00:28:04

Why? Because there were ignorant people who were coming to Islam, who are beginning to learn what one Hadith here, one Hadith here, one Hadith here, and we're not learning it through the practice of the Sahaba. So the Prophet said, Don't narrate any more Hadith.

00:28:08 --> 00:28:15

The Prophet sends Abu hurayrah as a governor, it's not because Omar sends Abu hurayrah as a governor.

00:28:16 --> 00:28:22

It's not because they're Omar feldt. Abu hurayrah is dishonest. No, he entrusted him as a ruler.

00:28:23 --> 00:28:34

And when he visits him, he says to him, are you narrating the Hadith of the Prophet? Isaiah says no, because I'm not attending the Delica halifa rasulillah you told me not to.

00:28:35 --> 00:29:23

Well, I can look at either lit but by Allah the day you die. So Young, politically savvy, the Hadith in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the day you pass away, my tongue will be loose to speak the words of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning Abu hurayrah felt that he had to Burma was wrong. Did he follow him? He obeyed. Even in the messenger Muhammad Ali Salim Yes. See, these are foundational moments in the history of Islam. These are things that our times we don't see. And we don't perceive that there are moments of sensitivity there are moments where we need to take pause, there are moments we need to reflect on the condition of the owner, what's best for my

00:29:23 --> 00:29:38

community, what's best for my manager, what's best for my family. What's best for my mother or my sister or my brother. It may not be what's appropriate for the next door neighbor, but for my family, this is what is right.

00:29:40 --> 00:29:43

And that is balance. I wish to end

00:29:44 --> 00:29:46

with speaking about balance.

00:29:48 --> 00:29:54

When we say someone is balanced or something is balanced, we mean one of three things. Alright brothers

00:29:56 --> 00:29:59

if this is balancing on my hand

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

It's in the center, right?

00:30:05 --> 00:30:16

It can be balanced, it's like this, it'll fall off. There's no balance gotta be in the middle. And this is what a law means where he calls our alma mater was Alpha

00:30:17 --> 00:30:20

Omega nasaka. It means balanced.

00:30:21 --> 00:30:24

We don't go this way, and we don't go that way.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:39

The second meaning of balance is that when what's underneath it is shaky. It doesn't fall. It's balanced that if it's shaky, it remains firm in fitna.

00:30:41 --> 00:31:22

The third meaning of balance, is that whatever I put into something, I don't try to take more out of it. Those are the three categories of balance. Let us look at our law speaks about them in the Quran. Every day you pray to a law 17 times a day you make dua that Allah makes you balanced. You say, the law see or a certain mustafi or a law lead us to the Sirat that is mystifying the word Sirat in Arabic If I was to tell you tell me about the Sirat over jahannam How did the Prophet describe it?

00:31:24 --> 00:31:46

He said it's a long bridge, that is very feeling over jahannam dealing, the one who doesn't have balance on it is going to fail. So the DIA has a Sirat which is also themed. The Surat in for us in our junior is

00:31:48 --> 00:32:17

the moment you go off the road of deployment The sooner you are not balanced if you go too much too much Salah too much so you're gonna get married, unbalanced, you're not fit. If you say I will pray sometimes I can't leave work for Jr. He job is too tough, you all not balanced, Surat in a certain stocking.

00:32:18 --> 00:32:20

The second type of balance

00:32:22 --> 00:32:26

is in a moment of precarious situation. something bad happens

00:32:27 --> 00:32:40

at death in the family and the illness strikes you a loss of a job or loss of wealth. How do you How does a person react shows his balance in his belief in Allah subhana wa tada

00:32:41 --> 00:32:56

and therefore, a person asks a law. Look at the draw of those who were always in conflict. They would say even before the prophets I send them they would and the people who are about to face Gianluca Goliath, they make the Dalai Lama

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

sovereign with that bit,

00:33:00 --> 00:33:25

make our foot firm. The ground is shaking. There's difficulty. People don't you know, it's a difficult life. I'm not like that work. I if I asked for time for prayer, it's gonna it's precarious. No, be firm, some bit. That firmness is part of balance. The third

00:33:28 --> 00:33:34

is that you're taking credit. You're, you're asking for things all the time.

00:33:36 --> 00:33:38

But if you're not feeling and putting back

00:33:40 --> 00:33:45

and you keep taking, then you are negligent before Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:33:46 --> 00:34:03

You cannot, my dear brother, my dear sister in Islam, keep asking, asking, asking, wanting, wanting, wanting, and you're not crediting and putting towards others, and therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and the editor earlier Hiraman led

00:34:04 --> 00:34:08

the hand that gives this better than the hand that receives

00:34:10 --> 00:34:23

a hug but in the law is more love the strong believer in body and mind and wealth, in health, in intellect in education, a lot loves the more than a believer who's weaker than them in that sense.

00:34:25 --> 00:34:44

Balance is that you have to work hard. You have to endeavor you have to pray. You have to fast it's not just put my hand up and say Oh Allah give me and I sit waiting. The Prophet would say Yo up and go out and earn what he has thought. Consider the day of Juma.

00:34:45 --> 00:34:59

Allah subhanaw taala says, when the time then he got the call of the Friday prayer comes fast sow run, hurry to the remembrance of Allah. Whether obey or leave off your work, buying and selling

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

Which is the nature of work that's better for you in quantum palemoon for either to do two solar one solar has finished, you would think Allah would say go back to buying and selling know what does the law say? 10 Tashi rule fill out the water go all over the earth don't just buy and sell go up high down low right let go everywhere you can to earn those.

00:35:26 --> 00:35:29

That's look at Allah subhanaw taala look at the medalla

00:35:31 --> 00:35:35

Okay, you left work, go back to what No, go and try to earn the duty

00:35:36 --> 00:35:45

because you fulfilled the remembrance of Allah. Go Allah who will support you. And therefore the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:35:47 --> 00:35:50

he teaches us about crediting ourself.

00:35:51 --> 00:36:02

Part of the credit that we give is in Alaska, not you the hipness. As the law says in the Quran, good deeds eliminate bad deeds.

00:36:04 --> 00:36:31

You ask Allah subhana wa Taala for will still fall and you turn to Allah in repentance. Allah opens the heavens to rain down upon you know Holly his Salam says hello to me. I still have a lot of background in who can have a pharaoh make it Stefan. He is the one who is most forgiving and really accepted your silly sama Alejandra where you

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


00:36:37 --> 00:36:46

law open the heavens bring down its Baraka. He will give you strength in wealth and children give you burdens and rivers of delight.

00:36:48 --> 00:36:52

challenges that we face attachment to the Koran

00:36:54 --> 00:37:05

it's not just reading it's understanding it's putting into practice it's living it's a tuning it is the truth is desiring the Quran more than anything else in life.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:31

Ciao challenges who do I follow? Who do I listen to? lead and belied by the word of Allah, the son of his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, seek those who lead you to that way. But don't be attached to one man, one person one opinion one Masjid, one group, one culture one tribe. Now,

00:37:32 --> 00:37:34

seek the good with everyone

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

and find the good in others.

00:37:39 --> 00:38:06

Third, balance, be upright. We say I want to be Mr. Clean upright. What does that mean? It means I'm not leaning one way. Or the other way. When we say insula is stuck. It means be straight, be balanced. Don't be leaning one way or another, turn towards a law as a solidified block. I leave you with the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:10

While loss of Hannah winter, Allah says to Musa alayhis salam.

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

after Moosa makes an eloquent dry, he says, Allah beshara holy Sabri SLE Emery, Allah opened my chest meaning let my heart be prepared for this mission Give me strength of firmness of conviction and heart. We are simply Emery meaning is making draft for fear

00:38:33 --> 00:38:52

or law make easy my task meaning selfing for island to receive this message. What Hello. Mainly Sunny, and release one tie from the ties of my tongue. Musa alayhis salaam kind of level with

00:38:53 --> 00:39:00

his tongue was held Mabu So listen, he would stutter and stammer when he spoke.

00:39:01 --> 00:39:20

And this was something that even in the grandchildren of the Prophet Mohammed, so I sell them and Hussein, the prophets I send them when he would see Al Hussein Ali or the Allahu tottering like this, the Prophet would smile and say, What do you say to her? I'm moving Moosa. He inherited this from his uncle musala his Salah.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:27

He says, oh, Allah, Thai run Thai. don't cure me.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:47

When you ask for the dounia don't ask for everything. Don't make a lahoma letter john. Mugler, the dounia that it's the concern of our heart. He says I will not release my tongue only when I'm meeting for otherwise keep it I'm happy to bear this illness.

00:39:50 --> 00:39:59

Whoa, whoa, whoa, the only I only asked this a lot so they can understand me. Not to make me feel better or to feel better about myself. When Charlie was 11

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

alley make. person, my assistant from my family how una Effie. After this, Allah says,

00:40:09 --> 00:40:16

ooh t de su laka Musa Musa asked for many, many, many, many, many things.

00:40:17 --> 00:40:24

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I will give you what you asked for a singular.

00:40:26 --> 00:40:26


00:40:28 --> 00:40:45

law wants you to ask him everything. Ask, turn to Allah and ask, beg have a law day and night. Whoa, well honey, he is beyond need. And he will treat all your requests as one request.

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


00:40:48 --> 00:41:33

your one request yamasa and this is a way of the generates honoring the one needing generosity. When someone you give favor to you don't seek to debase that man Allah subhana wa Taala honors us by entering our door. No my dear brother in Islam, my dear sister in Islam, a law is closer to you than your own juggler with his knowledge with his power with his authority with his ability. With the change he can bring in your life in your family's life. ask Allah subhana wa Tada. The greatest challenge you have is submitting to Allah and acknowledging your need of him. Acknowledge Allah.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:37

The Prophet Muhammad I seldom would say and would make

00:41:39 --> 00:41:45

a law I turn my put my forehead in your hand now see your TV ethic.

00:41:46 --> 00:41:52

your your your your faith that descends upon me is accepted.

00:41:53 --> 00:41:55

00:41:56 --> 00:41:58

And to help us remember from now on the things that we have been led to forget Nazca loss of Hannah Montana to put the light of the Quran in our eyes and in our hearts, Nazca loss of Hannah and to Allah to fill our homes with the recite teaching of the Quran.
