Always we begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers of peace upon our Nabhi Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we testify that none is worthy of worship of Allah and then our nemedia Salalah alayhi wa sallam is his worshiping slave and final messenger. I continue to always remind myself in your top Allah as Elgin, and I pray that Allah Subhana Allah want to add up, opens our heart to receiving a greater amount of love for Allah, fear of Allah azza wa jal and hope in the

00:01:56--> 00:02:34

mercy of Allah. We pray that Allah subhana wa to add that makes our consciousness our awareness of our duties to Allah, have more value to us of greater importance to us and have more greater commitment in our privacy and private life. than what we seek to show each other publicly. Allahu mammy, we pray that Allah Subhana Allah protects us young and old, men and women, those who are with us and those who are watching from a distance, we pray that Allah Subhana Allah hi that puts Baraka in our room, puts strength in our bodies, and healing in our vision and our sight Allahumma baddeck Lin Effie Esma

00:02:35--> 00:02:50

What was it that we're all waiting that ever the amount of a dinner I do out of the prophets I send them over la continue to put Baraka in our hearing in our sight and in the strength of our bodies. As long as you have kept us living in this world, Allah Houma me

00:02:51--> 00:03:13

first I would like to thank Masha Allah did a lovely event last weekend with Adam Grant them success for inviting me to share in these few minutes with you. We ask Allah subhana wa to add that make our gathering a gathering of Allah and that gathering where we depart with our sins forgiven, and that our heart grow fonder and more loving of each other and our families love them and

00:03:14--> 00:03:35

the topic Mashallah the brothers they said you know something that's appropriate for young people. But Mashallah I consider myself young, right. So Yanni young is relative, right? Yeah, you can feel young but you know, Masha Allah, Allah Subhana Allah grant this Baba in our help Allahumma me.

00:03:38--> 00:03:47

So the topic in sha Allah is my body, my manner, and to handle love the fact that I recited in the second Raka was from the last

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

page of salt and

00:03:51--> 00:04:22

where Allah subhanaw taala says that I gave the amanar to mankind and mankind took it upon themselves that they are accountable to Allah azza wa jal, and will speak in chat a lot about the importance of the body, the mind and the soul. So to set the stage it's important for us as Muslims, especially young and old and Mashallah, it's such a pleasure seeing some of my students from the school who I see in class, they had too much of we already, but it's good that they still wanted to come and chat Alhamdulillah

00:04:23--> 00:04:27

what I want you to get the conceptualization of what is an incense?

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

And what is very Adam. So these are two descriptions that Allah uses in the portal and to describe human beings, right. One of them is a cognitive understanding how insan it's about the mind, right? It comes from the concept of nice Yan, somebody who forgets so it's about thought. It's a cognitive assessment. Then there's Benny Adam, or those who are bash up. The second description is called bash up.

00:05:00--> 00:05:31

The ones who are firmus the ones Mashallah Some of us have more further than others. Right? Right, some of us have more for than others. But by definition, as human beings, one of the things that separates us, between us and those who walk the earth before Adam, this is important, because see, many of our children, they get confronted when they study evolution. They go to school, they get, you know, you're talking about evolution. And there were these primates, there were

00:05:32--> 00:06:09

upright beings, that had levels of understanding levels of thought, stood on two feet, walk the earth, and resemble the makeup of a human being. And of course, what leads some of the theory is that there you go, but what you find is that whenever you look at the models, every single one of those models is what one who is covered when for and therefore the description of Allah in the Quran is very precise. It's a beautiful description. He says, Bashar

00:06:10--> 00:06:52

in all your intimate you are Lima who Bashar when they spoke about the Prophet The one who teaches him is one who is Bashara human being when Allah sends gibreel to Maria Maria Salaam in Surah Maryam I will send that la her ohana fetta methyl Allah Bashar runs a Ouija right to description at physical description of a complete human being. I want to be a sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was one who had little hair on his body. Now of course, if you have hair on your body, it doesn't mean you are far from the suit of the prophets. I sell him that just as Hulk. Right? The the How could we interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we could not replicate it. But the holy book.

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

Now did you hear that word? Do you see how they sound the same.

00:06:57--> 00:07:22

And holyoake the character of the prophet Isaiah is obligated upon you to do what? to replicate it. You can't make yourself look physically exactly like the prophets. I seldom, if you were to remove all of your body here and just leave a little small strip of here that this is how the prophets I send them is just had a little bit of hair and a small strip down to his navel. If you were to say I'm going to practice the sooner

00:07:24--> 00:07:36

it's not dissimilar in that sense, right? But if you were to say the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam when he would be angry, he would hold his anger and not be vulgar that says, whoa, look.

00:07:38--> 00:08:03

I'm going to practice this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. Then there are things about his physical being about his body that he instructs us to do the same. So about trimming from the mustache so it doesn't overhang over our mouth, about keeping our beard having facial hair as a man, it is from the basher the characteristics of the fitrah of the nebbia Mohamed Salah.

00:08:05--> 00:08:22

So I want you to think of these two things. The insan is the one who cognitively Allah speaks about the mind of human beings. The second is that we are Benny Adam but we also are those who are Basha, we have a physical makeup,

00:08:23--> 00:08:52

the Imams of our faith, we speak about the understanding of what is a human being as being made of three important components. There is a burden, the physicality, the body that you possess. Then there is the ankle. The rationale, the discernment, the intellect, and then the third is the row. The next when you're alive, it's the next out of your body it is the rule

00:08:54--> 00:09:07

these three things when you put them together you are Benny Adam, you are from the children of Adam alayhis salaam, missing one of these separates you from humanity. Now why is this important?

00:09:10--> 00:09:19

Most of the living things that are walking the earth are very similar to you and I genetically right even

00:09:21--> 00:09:30

this table this water as I sit in front of you, what am I 72% h2o, right? Because Allah said

00:09:32--> 00:09:33

He created us from what?

00:09:34--> 00:09:39

What was our initial creation what's from what? From the

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

earth man in its water mixed with the elements of the earth, right? Sol Sol in CalHFA har. So we were made from the depths of the earth from the elements of the earth. It's not that you and I are made from this mud, not you and I but Adam

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

His Sadam, his form was brought together from the things that you and I consume to remain alive.

00:10:11--> 00:10:42

If you don't have enough iron in your diet and you're anemic, you're in danger. Why is your blood red similar to why the earth in Australia is red? Why do we have Mashallah so much about NWA because of the mines? Why? We have lots of iron ore, iron ore hematite are reddish in color, Rusty in color. Your blood is red. Why? Because it has iron, as if you bleed out a lot. And you don't have enough iron in your diet. You suffer.

00:10:43--> 00:10:46

Oh, my nails are you need more magnesium.

00:10:48--> 00:10:52

We'll get down on the magnesium. You need to eat more bananas, unique potassium,

00:10:53--> 00:11:11

potassium. Why are these the things you need? Because that's what you're from. This is what you the initial makeup of any other of Adam alayhis salaam is from the elements of the earth, Michalek now, from it, you and I our origin.

00:11:12--> 00:11:20

What if he had one hand your resume and two of the audit to be put women had no courage to him talk about an Oprah format we will be resurrected one more time.

00:11:22--> 00:11:38

So this tree once upon a tree had a life that was physical that was obligated to Allah. See when Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah methyl and soulcal Hajj it's one of the areas you make sujood when you recite it

00:11:40--> 00:12:34

I'm Tara, don't you see and Allah to Allah Yes, you do level, prostrate or submit to Him. Memphis similar to Memphis or those in the heavens and those on the earth. West Shams welcome up. The sun, the moon when new Doom the sun the stars were shut off the trees. Sometimes Have you gotten those four words on what's up with is a tree bending now they also Pamela, the three making sudo to Allah says not true. The tree making sudo to Allah is that it is submitted to its own will cannot do anything but what Allah created it for. This is what it is. It's a tree. It can do anything except D tree. That's what you are right? You're created to be a tree nothing else. But you are given choice.

00:12:36--> 00:12:54

So your creative. Allah says hey, they know who Sabine I leave them on a path. We can choose Shakira and capoeira, they can be grateful, ungrateful. You can choose you want to put in effort or not, you want to be friendly or not. You want to have good temperament or not.

00:12:55--> 00:13:07

But the essence of your creation, although it is coded by Allah given by Allah Subhana Allah, you are given choice, and a man from Allah, a trust not to be abused.

00:13:10--> 00:13:16

The first human experiment on fixing the defects of the heart,

00:13:17--> 00:13:46

the physical heart, they said you don't some people may Allah protect our homes and our families. Some people are born with congenital heart disease in their heart, there is the valve. It doesn't restrict the blood from flowing back. The valve is supposed to allow it one way but not to let it back. So Subhan Allah, some people the valve, it opens but doesn't close firmly. So after it pumps out, more blood comes back in the person's

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

dying slowly.

00:13:50--> 00:14:40

So they said we want to fix this valve, but they don't have the technology in the 50s 60s 70s. To do this. They said how about we replace the valve with another you can take it from another human being back when they hadn't yet learned how to keep the heart of somebody who's passed away, relatively alive and oxygenated until they can transplanted. So what they used to do, they used to bring the swine as the qumola a pig and they would cut open the pig while it's still alive, cut the valve out and stitch it into the human being heart and Subhana Allah because the genetic similarity, the genetic similarity physically between the swine and the human being with close to the person they

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

would seat you're up his heart, they would give him a cocktail of drugs. So he doesn't you know, it's it's similar but it's not the same and they wouldn't live

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

because we're created genetically, similarly to many of the things that roam this earth. So what separates us

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

Some people say oh, it's the mind. So we now we talk about the second physically. We're like all of these other things that walk the earth.

00:15:09--> 00:15:13

So we have up. Pamela, we got a much Yeah, yeah, I think

00:15:14--> 00:15:33

it becomes strange then when you hear things like, you know, in science, they measure the intelligence of other animals. So they'll tell you, you know, dolphins are actually smarter than human beings, you say, loving, a dolphin smarter than me. So, sometimes you meet human beings, and you understand, right?

00:15:34--> 00:16:18

I understand why this, this may be said is that all human panela animals have thought, and they're able to think, and they're able to understand right from wrong, they're able to understand justice from injustice, they're able to understand when they're being wronged, and when they're being oppressed. You can Google this later, you know, when you go home, just type into YouTube. I always watch this with my year, seven students in school. The first one, I talked to him about the heat, as I'm talking to you. Now, this is for my classes. So when we talk about heat, I say to them, Listen, you know, there's capuchin monkeys, or just put monkeys in justice, just put that in YouTube. And

00:16:18--> 00:16:52

you'll see an experiment, a professor, he's talking about an experiment, they put two monkeys in cages next to each other. And the monkeys have been trained, you give the monkey you put a rock in the cage, it takes the rock brings it to the other side gives it to you, so you give it a cucumber. Monkeys like cucumber, it's fine. But they love grapes. So what they do is the two monkeys in front of each other, the first one they give him, he brings the rock back, they give him a cucumber. The second one in front of the first does the same thing gives a lot they give them a great

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

the first monkey looks.

00:16:56--> 00:17:05

They put the rock with this, this first one again, he comes back, they give him a cucumber. He looks at the cucumber and throws it back

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

at the professor

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

This is when

00:17:12--> 00:17:29

and begins to shake the cage. You know, this is this is oppression, this is wrong, I'm not going to accept this Subhanallah there's human beings who don't even react in that way. So Pamela, some of us as human beings, somebody will walk over us, somebody will mistreat us, and we won't

00:17:30--> 00:17:59

even show unacceptance not even react but even show unacceptance and they repeat this experiment time and again, the monkey would rather be hungry than accepting justice. And every time takes it throws it back at her picks, it throws it back at her. And they did this with other animals. They did this with pigs with dogs with bats. All of them have a similar cognitive understanding.

00:18:01--> 00:18:48

Lots of Hollywood Allah speaks about the defect that human beings had. In sort of thought how Allah describes Adam initially, when I hegner Isla Adam, I mean, Pablo can ESEA well a measured level asthma, I made a covenant and instruction with Adam, I made a deal with Adam a promise to Adam and Adam to fulfill it. And Adam was proving to forget he was not one of constancy and somehow and Allah as human beings, one of the defects that we have one of the flaws that we have is that we do not always remember consequence we do not always look to tomorrow. So Allah gives us what is called as the reminder, what is the name of the Quran, in the whole leveque it is your reminder, the purpose

00:18:48--> 00:19:08

of the Quran is not to only give you new things, but to remind you of things that your fifth law inside you, you know, things any human being knows, but Allah says whether you're whether you're in the cross temporal movement, you remind them the reminder benefits the believers. So the second

00:19:09--> 00:19:24

aspect of our humanity first we said physically, we're like many of the other animals. Intellectually rationally, we're very similar, but we've given given something that others haven't. Allah tells us, man,

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

I lommel

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

what is the most greatest llama? Is that he gave us What?

00:19:34--> 00:19:43

Why should we value it because inside I'm the one who created you I'm giving you the manual you need holla fall inside I learner who

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

taught mankind something that others don't have, which is the ability to convey knowledge from oneself to others in records that can extend beyond their life. So if you go to an elephant

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

And you say, can you teach your baby how to sew? Yes. Can you teach your grandchildren how to swim? Even though you're not there? Can you re leave them instructions? Can you discuss things in that sense that you leave behind the legacy for future generations? Can you draw or leave something that is understood by those who come after you? The answer is no, this concept of began to make an explanation for those who are not present with you and that you will not meet there after them. If you go to only rule, or if you go to Egypt, or if you go to the Mayans in South America, one of the things that all human beings are astounded with, when you walk into the pyramids, you see these

00:20:44--> 00:21:00

stories, and paintings and writings and script they're in that they convey is something then that's translatable that people who come after, admire, and seek to learn from.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

So what separates us

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

physically, rationally similar.

00:21:09--> 00:21:23

Then there's the third component that you and I have been given, and that's the greatest amanar that has been bestowed upon us, as human beings. Allah Subhana, Allah has given you an eye that Oh,

00:21:25--> 00:21:36

and they would ask the prophets, I said, the Mayas, aluna cannot call Roman me Robbie, they ask you about the soul, say to them that the concern of the soul is solely with Allah.

00:21:37--> 00:21:50

Even if it was explained, you cannot understand it. That concept of the soul is one that requires greater than what you and I are capable with, in our humanity.

00:21:52--> 00:22:27

Pull it off, I'm Emily, Robbie. And later in the year when that booty two minute Amy, luckily, and whatever knowledge you possess as human beings, it is limited and focused in certain certain aspects. It's not comprehensive. So when Allah speaks of his knowledge, he says, a half of equally shy in edema. The knowledge of a law is expensive beyond all limits, while our knowledge is limited to time, place, circumstance, experience, and to the elucidation over there by Yann of those who came before us.

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

Where do we receive knowledge from?

00:22:34--> 00:22:49

You? Sometimes, you know, there's this fraud that's committed upon university students, where they're taught about, you know, just the scientific method, that that's the only knowledge that is reliable.

00:22:50--> 00:23:01

But as Muslims, that is not our philosophy, our philosophy is yes, there is the demonstratable, objective, rational knowledge. But there is also the knowledge of Revelation,

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

the knowledge that is not for the mind or the body, but for the soul. So my mind and my body, they can absorb knowledge through senses, smelling, hearing, sight, experience, touch.

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

But then there's a knowledge that is beyond that, that is equal to acceptance for us as Muslims, which is the knowledge of transmission that has been given and handed to the prophets is conveyed to us with an honor tradition. That brings it to us in the same way it was it was revealed to the nebia Mohamed Salah onyx and so Allah wants you to understand this. Allah says inhaler Tamil absorb

00:23:50--> 00:24:11

these people who deny it's not that their eyes do not see. It's not that they don't look at the stars and can't calculate and you know, it's not that they don't have science and they are not able to understand My majesty. While I can tamela kulu Boulet invisible but their hearts are blind.

00:24:15--> 00:24:40

The heart has sight, just like the eyes have sight for us as Muslims. The basis of our belief is not just simply the rational material sciences, there are things you and I believe in with the same truth with the same truth that you and I take as being truth in other things. You know, sometimes

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

people like to

00:24:48--> 00:24:54

be fancier than they really are. You know, there's, you'll have somebody will say show, uh, you know, prove to me God exists.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

But, you know, don't tell me to believe in something. Don't tell me

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

Because I have to just take it for your word. And it's a very easy way to undermine this kind of illogical statement. Why is it illogical? Because everything you believe in somebody told you

00:25:12--> 00:25:23

if you ask me who's your father? Yeah, I'll say it had you Abdullah Brahim. I was speaking to him just before coming. He wakes up repetitively calls me, Michelle. Hi, guys, it's my fault. You say? How do you know?

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

I say What do you mean? How do I know?

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

You told me?

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

My mother told me. What do you mean? How do I know?

00:25:33--> 00:25:53

How do you know, leave off old texts and other things. We're talking just from the Bay are the things we accept as truth are always things that people have said to us. Somebody said to you, even those who disbelieve in God, they believe somebody.

00:25:54--> 00:26:20

Oh, somebody said, Oh, yes, the universe can make itself use it. How do you know? I read it. Who do you read in your corporate Bible? Not not the Bible in something, and then you will have I read dockings I read Nietzsche I read, somebody is telling you, somebody is your Prophet, somebody is giving you information that you accepted as truth.

00:26:22--> 00:26:51

Every truth has an origin. It's very rare. Nobody's going to calculate themselves the expanse of the sky. And therefore when Allah subhanaw taala tells you fly on buena Elan, EBIT. Don't you look to the camels pay for Holy God. This was for the people who were in Arabia. We're in a summer maybe in our time we say oh camels we're in a summer How about you look at the heavens pay for all the Add how with kept in a tight

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

hand Allah.

00:26:54--> 00:26:58

The world searches for anything that similar to this earth.

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

That the oxygen level is in a place that you and I can breathe without being tired. Everywhere else, the earth the gravity of those planets, it's either spinning too quick or too slow and the oxygen can stay at that

00:27:15--> 00:27:19

we're looking for water we're looking for signs of life we're looking for any evidence.

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

So Allah says fly on guru net in the summer

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

k for holiday.

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

When did you barely pay for

00:27:30--> 00:27:43

the mountains how it accumulating and continues to grow up continues to get taller. What you know all the facility had and now the earth seems like it's flat into them ready for them?

00:27:48--> 00:27:50

The amount of therefore that is put upon us

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

is to come to understand that question.

00:27:55--> 00:28:11

Why have I been given this body? This time? This place this opportunity? And I know you will say oh Chevy The answer is simple. Allah said wonderful. After Gina will insert Illa Yama Dune I created mankind in the agenda day, worship me.

00:28:15--> 00:28:22

And that's the correct answer. But it requires for us to understand who we are

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

and why we are here.

00:28:26--> 00:28:27

You are a physical,

00:28:29--> 00:28:37

intellectual and spiritual being combined. three levels. Not physical,

00:28:38--> 00:28:51

mental, spiritual. So why did Allah send to the prophets I send them he sent three things. Some of my heart he was sending to our Navy so I said he sent Islam

00:28:52--> 00:29:09

he man and yes sir. Islam, all of it physical because your body your body's physical. So you need the physical element for your creation. Think of the five pillars of Islam What are they

00:29:10--> 00:29:13

say ash had

00:29:14--> 00:29:16

a la ilaha illallah wa shadow

00:29:17--> 00:29:22

Salah which we perform what is it? Can you just say oh my Shama I'm going to pray now.

00:29:24--> 00:29:25

Allah

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

can you just pray in your heart?

00:29:28--> 00:29:31

Yeah, look at it. Stand.

00:29:32--> 00:29:39

And then Roku and then sudo and then and then and then physical.

00:29:40--> 00:29:44

Every month every year, one month. 2930 days hunger.

00:29:45--> 00:29:47

Your body fasts.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

You can't give the car through kindness, you can say or through working it off. Listen, I want to keep my money, but I will give you hours of work to pay that car.

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

Now has to be what? Physical How did you meet a lot open the road to head yard? May Allah subhanaw taala return us yeah.

00:30:10--> 00:30:21

Yeah Allah returned Sal May Allah take those who have not been in return those of us who have gone Allahumma and Hajj Han Allah, you put all of these things together, you find it together in

00:30:24--> 00:30:56

physical. Then there is so we said Islam, for the body. Your body needs the rigor of the physicality of different things. Wake up before the sun. Don't go to sleep until it sets in you prayed to help God by night, fasting monday and thursday 13 1415 of every month, give us a car give you a movement. What would you say to the move? Put action into practice? Then there's Eamon everything he man is intellectual.

00:30:58--> 00:31:06

What is he man? You're me? No, no Bill, Bill. So you sit with yourself and you deliberate about your belief in a bar.

00:31:07--> 00:31:23

In your mind, it's a challenge for your mind not a challenge for your body. What biLlahi wa mala ET wa Koto v wa Rahmatullahi wa aleo mill after the Day of Judgment, WA

00:31:24--> 00:31:32

each of them is an incredible test to the mind. Subhana Allah you're in the middle of a problem.

00:31:33--> 00:31:37

When you can think when you think the whole world around you is breaking down.

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

hub dot Allahu wa Masha,

00:31:43--> 00:31:47

the thing you love the most taken from you in early lahi.

00:31:50--> 00:32:20

I only say what is going to please, Allah, ma UCLA. So it's a challenge to the mind that you have to restrain your mind, you can just let it wander, fall from your belief in Allah, you can just let your mind take you to a place that has taken others because they built a bad construction of a lot of God. I say I Well, I would just saying this to my year 10s. On Thursday, I said to them, I've met many people who disbelieve in God.

00:32:21--> 00:32:26

I find I found nobody who disbelieve in Allah. What does that mean?

00:32:27--> 00:32:39

There's people who disbelieve in God because what they believe about God in the first place is wrong. They have their image of who God is to them. But it's not who Allah is, as Allah said.

00:32:41--> 00:32:49

One of the elements we study is called in philosophy. It's called the problem of evil. How can evil exist in the world? how,

00:32:50--> 00:33:21

you know, if God is All Merciful? If he's our man, like the way you say, Why do bad things happen? It means that bad things happen, that maybe he's not all powerful, he can stop it. Because it is so massive, what you're saying is All Merciful, but bad things happen, then maybe he doesn't have power. So he's not all powerful. If you say he's all powerful, and he's merciful, and bad things happen, then he is the one who is evil, I would have allowed him then

00:33:22--> 00:33:39

this is the problem of evil that confronts Christians, you know, Muslim has this problem. Why? Because in our books, in our teaching as Muslims, we don't have a loss of Hannah with Allah, you know, if you ask one of the other people, who is God, say, Oh, Jesus is love.

00:33:41--> 00:33:42

So what happens when there's war?

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

Jesus is Love.

00:33:46--> 00:34:06

Love. That's it. So what happens when this child has been born in a war torn country? This child is born with illness with that, what happened? Oh, I can't understand why God would do this to me. So then you say, No, no, no, no, no, no. That's what you miss believe about God. Let me tell you what Allah says. Allah says, Well,

00:34:07--> 00:34:18

I'm going to test you with what with death, with illness, with sickness, with poverty with poor who told you because I am a man that I am not also

00:34:19--> 00:34:32

the one who allows harm. Allah never said Allah never promised if you believe in me every time you make Mashallah, straight away You're a liar I need money Mashallah rain clouds of gold.

00:34:34--> 00:34:50

Is this the example Allah gives us look at how he was seldom born father has passed away before his life as he is on a journey with his mother to visit his uncle's in Medina on the return trip in the middle of the desert alone. His mother died five years old to Lysander

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

alive that you weren't

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

even here, my name is Sarah. I'm in the fire. Why? So that you and I understand what

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

We don't have that problem of evil Allah never promise you only good.

00:35:04--> 00:35:09

So if you build the wrong belief about God, then it's easy for you to test.

00:35:11--> 00:35:22

I got it How can God Be merciful? No, it's because you don't understand who is Allah. So we come back to an E. Manu, you may know Nadel Allah

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

The thing that you should and I encourage in our children is not memorizing lots of things from before and of course we want their children Mashallah to memorize but it's to understand the basics of their tell him

00:35:36--> 00:35:38

what good is memory I remember I do that and

00:35:39--> 00:35:44

I can repeat, repeat, repeat. And then you asked him a simple question. Who's Allah?

00:35:45--> 00:36:10

Who's Allah? Who is Allah as you should believe a lot to be not as you want a lot to be. This is the Amana. Allah gave us the body, the mind and the soul and Emmanuel Billa it's about holding your mind accountable, filling your mind with an understanding of belief of who is Allah and melodica

00:36:13--> 00:36:41

varier Amanda Mullah created by a loss of power to Ireland for specific purposes. gibreel Aliya said I'm a creation other than our creation. Regularly my students they will ask, so do we are does do Muslims believe in UFOs? I say yes, of course. sama haka. UFOs. Really, so yeah, we believe in UFOs and angels and Gene and rural in and will then mukalla loon and other creation, Allah

00:36:43--> 00:36:44

Allah me

00:36:48--> 00:36:53

What do you know what what is in your mind is more important?

00:36:54--> 00:37:22

At times of clarifying it and understanding why Mercado la haka, Qadri, one of the blame Allah puts upon humanity is that they didn't understand and esteem Allah as they should hold the law in the place that he should be in their lives. Then the third level as you are a Muslim is lamb. Eman And then there is sn Allah homage and amin and mazzini lawmakers of those who are Sonia.

00:37:23--> 00:38:14

Yes, and then is for the soul. So the body is fixed with Islam the mind is fixed with the man and the soul is fixed with sn look at how the Prophet describes SN and dabbled Allah can Mecca Torah is that when you worship God it's as if you can be you like you can see a lot what in them Tara who you will not see a lot in this life in this body of ours. for who you are that you know, as if you can see Allah you know he can see you. And a lot of the greatest ways that your soul comes to life is that you have the Moshe had of Allah that a law becomes a part of your day to day existence. One of the great struggles Subhanallah we have with our children is getting them to do their sada where

00:38:14--> 00:38:22

it's between them and Allah Subhana Allah not because we are with them, right? That I am standing before Allah as origin.

00:38:24--> 00:38:29

I am with Allah in the market, I am with you this Mariya of Allah.

00:38:31--> 00:39:20

So those three things are who you and I are. And Allah centers Islam Eman and Hassan in simplicity, our submission to Allah our system of belief in the deen and the law of Islam, to meet the needs of our humanity. And therefore, the better you practice Islam, the better you are as a human being. The more honest you are, the more generous you are, the more kind you are, the more receptive you are to people and to people's needs. And the more you stray away from Islam, the more animalistic you become. Even when we describe people who have gone away from the truth, when we see people who are acting ferocious, we say, look at them, they're behaving like animals, look at how they're arguing

00:39:20--> 00:39:49

they're there for what they're like dogs against each other. Right? In all of the languages of the world. The character we describe human beings who lost their humanity is that we describe them with animalistic qualities, because they've regressed to lose that component of the soul. Even though they're thinking about the evil they're committing and acting physically in the evil they do. What has not restrained them is that their their soul is not present.

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

And therefore Allah Subhana Allah has sent us to the soul to be in that the heart of the believer that would amount when they speak about the rule and the neffs

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

They interchange it with the word alt, or the word sub, or the word for ad. All three words mean the same thing as the heart, but they have different qualities in the Arabic language.

00:40:14--> 00:40:16

You and I, when we all have a good heart,

00:40:18--> 00:40:37

you know the prophets, I send them we all know the heavy supply send them, that when a person's heart is good, the body is strong. And if a person's heart is no good, then the body goes to waste, this spirit goes to waste. If you have a lying heart, a dishonest heart, you are a dishonest person.

00:40:39--> 00:40:49

If you have a generous heart, you become a generous person. If you have a cowardly heart, you act in a cowardly manner.

00:40:50--> 00:40:53

The heart is meant to be the king

00:40:54--> 00:41:04

of the mind. And the mind is meant to restrict the body. How do we describe the mind in the Arabic language we call it African meaning

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

in prison,

00:41:09--> 00:41:46

it means to be tied up. So you know the Saudis let me give you an easy example. You know, the Saudis. They wear the red thing, the men, and then they wear something on top, that black thing, what do they call it? A call? Why is it called the call? Because that comes from them as Bedouins. It's actually the figure eight. They used to take this off. They used to keep it there because you don't want to lose it if you ride a camel. Right? So when they got off their journey, they would take this off and put the camels feet in it. So the camel can't run in the desert. We know the famous Hadith where the Bedouin men came to the measure of the prophets, I seldom left the camel and

00:41:46--> 00:42:25

when in the masjid prophets I send them said yeah, girl hair with a webcam. Put your call and put your trust in Allah. He said, autocorrect Allah I don't need I applied trust Allah. Allah, the prophet Isaiah Lim says, Your mind is not working. Right? Yeah, please, tie it. So the ark means tying up your body, tying up your tongue, tying up your behavior from doing wrong. What makes your mind hold back and other people's mind go forward? Is that you believe in Revelation and they don't.

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

Why my dear sister Do you wear the hijab? Because you believe Allah Subhana Allah to Allah revealed to the nebia salallahu alayhi wa sallam that this is what a woman should wear to protect her honor, enter chastity and I'm going to do it even if everybody around me doesn't.

00:42:43--> 00:43:16

There's no law. There's no nobody's gonna tell you where it you have to where it is. You're not you're asking. If you're going to use your art legally say everybody doesn't. Then I want to be like everybody. What makes your mind subdued is your maps your rule. If your role is accepting of the revelation as true knowledge, and not just your eyes as being the source of knowledge, you're you don't make up your knowledge just with your mind you make your knowledge up with your soul.

00:43:17--> 00:43:18

So Allah said

00:43:20--> 00:43:25

I follow the word of Allah even though my mind is telling me everybody else is not.

00:43:26--> 00:43:45

What is the difference between pork chop and lamb chop genetically nothing? Very, look the same. Even Muslim if you were to put it uncooked or cooked on a plate. You might smell it. We're very sensitive Muslims, right. But if you see it from you can tell the pork and looks the same.

00:43:46--> 00:43:55

What makes you eat one and not the other? It's not the taste. It's not the texture. It's not the health. It's you believed in what?

00:43:56--> 00:44:00

Your soul accepted the Word of God.

00:44:01--> 00:44:06

Henry maliko horribly Metallica and in it lakmal Kinsey hollows

00:44:07--> 00:44:13

so it doesn't mean you don't think oh, what's the difference chef? Both of them are protein

00:44:14--> 00:44:32

even you know Muslims, we get really picky right? He's just gelatin. No, no, don't take the Kennedy right you put the candy back. Why? Oh no, no. It's about it's not pig anymore shall put it right. Why? Because your soul controls your mind controls your body.

00:44:33--> 00:44:38

The things you fall away from the truth in

00:44:39--> 00:44:42

is because the problem is it your mind or your body.

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

If you're not waking up for your failure, is it your mind or your body is it your body cannot get up if your buddy can not get up here forgiving. The prophets I send them said if a person is asleep and they cannot get up. They can they are exhausted not working.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

Like Chippendale chipped and they can't get up

00:45:03--> 00:45:20

alas they have forgiven when they wake up they pray Hello no problem. But if you are regular and not everyday Mashallah you wait you don't wake up profession is the problem Your mind is not smart enough to put on an alarm for your phone? Is it that your mind is not?

00:45:21--> 00:45:32

Is it that your mind does not understand Jenna and you know is that your soul has not accepted the way you have Allah quotevalet it's written

00:45:33--> 00:45:48

as for that to Allah work the other words of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu listen. So the greatest amount of for you and I as a human being is to treat our soul in the same way we treat our bodies and minds.

00:45:49--> 00:46:22

If I end with this, may Allah protect all of our families and our children? If your son right now, you know, Bubba, I'm very sick and you put your a feverish and immediately you either call the doctor to come visit you at home or you go to the pharmacy, you call one of your friends. Because the body is something's wrong. I need to fix it straight away. No question. If your son Subhana Allah The mind is not getting the grade. Take them to tutor and kumaon and none of them fix it.

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

What happens with the soul?

00:46:27--> 00:46:40

Why do we fix the soul the way we tried to fix the body? See, sometimes as parents we ruin our own job maybe that's another discussion, right? Sometimes we the biggest problem with our

00:46:41--> 00:46:53

our our future generation is that we try to fix the souls problems with the mind or body solutions. You didn't play whack I wouldn't be learning valic now

00:46:55--> 00:47:17

because you're you're, you're you're striking the body and that has nothing to do with the reason of this. Okay, you struck the body I'm gonna pray but my soul is not praying. I'm going to do because Baba is gonna get angry. Did you pay us? Oh, yes, yes. And you didn't pray? Yeah. Why? Because my body

00:47:18--> 00:47:35

want to protect my body. Oh, the learning that this is not our body or you try to fix it with the mind. You know, us, you know if you pray, I will give you this and I will buy you this game. And so you try to reason

00:47:36--> 00:47:44

you're trying to rational. If you do your select regularly, Mashallah I will take you and I will get you psi, all of those

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

use them live in now.

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

One buys for Allah.

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

You haven't fixed they're the heart, the soul.

00:47:56--> 00:48:05

So the soul has a solution. The mind has a solution. The body has a solution. When you use the body solution for the soul.

00:48:07--> 00:48:51

There is no success. When you use the mind solution for the body. There's no success. When you use the mind solution for the heart, there's no success, not in the long term not in the objective way that we seek. May Allah Subhana Allah allow us to protect the amanar of our body, our mind and our soul. May Allah subhana wa Taala in live in us with the knowledge of our faith makers from those who have a commitment to a more physically a commitment to Allah with our mind and our commitment to Allah with our hearts and our souls Allah Ameen Allah who marries that Islam only Muslim in what other Deen Allah him as you know him yamawaki mean Allah friendly Muslim you know when a Muslim i

Like, is that Kamala and NASA it is unlikely that a female

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

Now

00:50:03--> 00:50:06

I think it should be almost time for the event right?

00:50:11--> 00:50:17

If you want maybe we can make the event and then we can take questions until the if I might feel like in shock if there are any questions

00:50:19--> 00:50:20
