Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was suffering he was sending more about Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah Sano at mo to slim, always in forever. We begin by praising Allah subhana wa Tada.
We send our prayers of Peace and blessings upon the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
I don't know what other one is.
Right? But I do know that it's important for us as Muslims,
to look at those who are in the past, to be able to understand where we want to be in the future.
And I want you to understand that the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as the Messenger of Allah was educating the people who lived with him, his aim was not just that generation, you have to understand this. The words of the Prophet Mohammed Salim are always full of these echoes, he had this statement where he would say, even on the day of Hajj, you know, the most sanctified day. He says, This is this may be the last time I see you the last time I speak to you. It might be the last hug I have for you ballyhoo Sameer Allah, let the one who hears me tell the one who's distant. While harder, let the one who's present today tell the one who will come later for
the mobile living in Santa perhaps the one who will hear it not from me may understand it and benefit from it more than the ones who are with me that day on that moment.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he would speak, he would say to them, the next generation and the generation after are the best of generations. Hi, Ian Kuhn is calling me. Soma, Latina, Luna, Toma Latina Luna home, he knows that there's not just one generation or two, there's going to be more. And when the Prophet talks about what's going to happen before the day of judgment, he knows that many of his Sahaba they're not going to live to it, they're not going to see it.
His message was therefore an eternal message intending us and in fact, intending those who will come after us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So everything that is in Islam is put brick by brick and place by place, intentionally by the hands of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through the instruction given to him by Allah.
Those who carry to us this Islam, or the knowledge of this Islam are called a little dual. The prophets I seldom said, Yeah, Emmylou Harris, in Cooley holophane adullam, the sacred knowledge of this religion is going to be transmitted from one generation to the next, from one holla from one halifa to the next, from one generation to the next, by the upright teachers and scholars of that oma,
the Sahaba who were living at that time, I could almost see them, you know, I can almost picture it. It's almost as if you think that those who are going to carry this knowledge would be seasoned men, that they would be people you know, who had life experience, that they would be people who were an authoritative nature, they had power and success. So you always think in your mind of people like Abu Bakr, Omar, Osman Ali yadi, Allahu anhu.
But in fact, the knowledge that was conveyed to us you don't find many Hadith from Omar and Abu Bakr and of man and Ali, not many.
You find many Hadees from people who were your age who lived with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so you find 1000s of Hadith from ebony abass, who was nine or 10 years old, you find 1000s of hoodies from your mother, who was 17 to 19 years old. You find 1000s of hoodies from our Chateau de Allahu Ana, who was in her teens. 20s when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam passed away. She grew up in his household as a young person, someone who's a reflection of you here today. You think to yourself, who's the person that the Prophet would send to a different country to talk about Islam
Is he going to send a man? No, you're going to send a bobak No. He sends more than 17 years old. He sends him to Yemen.
Who's the Prophet gonna send out as the last army before his death? Osama blazeaid. A young man 16 1718 years old teenager, the prophet puts him in command of an army that includes the likes of collignon Walid radi Allahu Allahu Akbar. How is that possible? Because the prophets, I seldom see what we see today.
The world today is very different.
And it's different in different places. In the Western world, the average age of the citizen who lives in western countries is around 50 to 56 years old. That's the average age.
In any Muslim country, the average age is 26. Young people.
You go to Indonesia, there's a lot of young people coming to Malaysia, a lot of young people. You go to Egypt, a lot of young people, you go to Saudi, a lot of young people, you go anywhere in the world where Muslims live, young people, young people, young people, young people.
And therefore the manner that Allah subhanho wa Taala, puts upon the shoulders of the youngsters was established at the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu asen. Now we went to length yesterday, I really wanted you to get the point that the Sahaba were men and women, human. They were people who had to fight for every ounce of Eman. They were people who the prophets I sell them with teach how to repent from major and minor scenes. They were people who struggled with addictions,
with financial problems with failed marriages,
with a desire to earn a greater income,
with oppression and injustice put upon them with parents who don't understand with parents who reject even their faith.
They dealt with these issues, who can tell us of the Sahabi who was so wealthy in Mecca from the pride and joy of his mother. She's to give me everything you wanted. And the moment he accepted Islam, she kicked him out of the house. She said if you're following Mohammed get out, no more food, no more water, no more drink. I'm not you're not my son anymore.
And when the prophets I send them migrated to Medina, he followed him to LA when he was selling them. And he was when he was killed in battle. This man who used to dress in the finest of silk and never wear a garment more than once in his life. He'd wear it once and that was it. They throw it out, give it in charity. That's how rich he was. When they came to bury him they couldn't find a garment to cover his head and his feet. If they covered his face, his feet would be exposed. If they covered his feet, his head would be exposed. Who can tell us the Sahaba his name
anyone here named Mossad
and he must have observed no one named Mozart it's a beautiful name.
he comes to the profits I sell them and he says Yasuda law had come and accepted Islam. And this has caused my mother to say I will not eat until I leave your faith What should I do? So a law reveals or an for this young man 1516 years old and a lot of reveals in sort of lock man in jarhead aka if they make jihad against you, Allah and tuck through that you leave off that you abandon the faith, fanatical to whom I don't obey your parents. Well, Sahib who Macedonia but be kind to them as long as they may live in this worldly life. Go visit her bring her food do the best you can don't obey your in disbelieving and Allah but hurt your job is to fulfill your duty towards her.
who left the dunya and chose a law and His Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
it narrated in the Muslim Imam Ahmed.
Remember we're talking about regular people right Sahaba as regular human beings.
After the prayer, the prophet sitting in the masjid
hanging out with the Sahaba a young man comes with the Hata record. He came from the back and he jumped over people's shoulders to come to the prophets. I send them
and he comes and he says to the Prophet, he didn't care who's there.
He says yeah Rasulullah sallallahu it was similar. When we be Xena
grant me permission that I might fulfill my lustful desire in a haram way allow me just me. Not everyone else. Just me just once
to commit, you know, Xena Sahaba they heard this for como la they came to grab them. How dare you in the magic of the prophet to the face of the prophets I seldom say such a ridiculous offensive haram request. And the Prophet said that will leave him What did you manage? All of you leave them as you'd leave me and him we want to talk.
For as lesser the Prophet bring him so close, that their knees touched.
And the prophets I sell them as soon as the maintain that close to him this young man, the prophet put his blessed hand on the man's chest
and asked him questions. Now you and I, we have our ways of investigating these matters. Who is she? How long have you known her? What's the extent of your haraam relationship? Right? Whenever you find a brother and sister they slip. They're doing something that they shouldn't be doing. Because there's limits for us as Muslims, right? Where, where people love limits.
The extent of it is always who, what, when, where? How long.
Where did you meet? How long? Who's your parents? How come? I didn't know about this earlier? How could you let me down? How could you let me down?
By doing this?
The Prophet asked a simple question.
puts his hand on the man's chest and says altaba Julio.
Would you like someone to ask me this? For your mother? Oh,
what's all of our answer? No. Someone come talk about my mother. To do what?
My mother no la la ciudad de la sala. No, May my family be sacrificed? I would not rather that happen. I'd rather they die than that happen.
After bajo de otic. How about someone asked me that for your sister.
Sister. Kill him?
No. Can I have someone doing what I want to do? To my sister?
forgot who the animatic your ends. Your family members says no. So the Prophet doesn't then say how would you want it for her? He says okay, Fatah, huli, Neff sick, if it's so repulsive for all these other people, how come you want it for yourself.
And then the prophet may
Allah clean the heart,
works through them by forgive his mistake. The Prophet knows, obviously for that man to have come to that point. There were mistakes that happened along the way. So the Prophet says Allah clean his heart, forgive his sins, Watson Farrugia and allow him to be strong to protect his chastity.
And the Prophet moved his hand off that man's heart.
that moment in time,
is not a moment in time that escapes any of us.
That problem is not unique to that era.
When you think of the Sahaba, you don't hear something like that.
You need to hear that that they struggled with temptation with shape on with with hardship. And the cure has always been purity of heart, cleaning one's heart, setting one's intention towards Allah, knowing that the worldly life is as pleasurable as it could can be, can lead us away from Allah subhana wa Tada.
There's a man named Abdullah miromar, the son of Mr. Abdul hatachi Allahu anhu.
When the Battle of bed
was about to begin,
Rama Rama kata was a young man 1314 years old.
And he came out of Medina he's coming to battle he wants to stand right next to the prophets. I send them right next to the Sahaba to be with them. In case Medina needs greater defense. And as the Prophet sees them, he says, No, you gotta go back. You're too young. I'm delighted. miramont says I wish I was there. I wish I can come with you on messenger of Allah. I want to do the best for my community for my people.
This review to put in your perspective how young the Sahabi was. He was so young, he couldn't lift the weight of a sword. That's how small and young he was at the time of the Battle of bed.
And the law of near armor is the second largest, some say the third, some say the second largest narrator of Hadees from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the foundational hadith of our faith come from him.
The Hadith that tells us about what is the man what is Islam? What is Islam? What is the man What is it, son? When is the day of judgment? What are its signs, that comes from Abdullah Abdullah Ahmad underrating, from his father, Omar Katara, the Allahu anhu.
They were people of learning.
Don't look at yourself and say, Well, I can't really do much because you know, I'm limited by age. I'm limited by authority. I'm limited by experience.
The Hadith that we know about the essentials comes from these people. You know, the hadith of Waldo. There's two narrators that narrate to us, the complete will do of the Prophet. One is automatic now fan and the other is Abdullah hibiya. Bass. He was nine years old. He says, I used to ask to stay over at my uncle's house and a lot he was alone. Because I like to sit in the room and watch what he did at night.
So there is a Prophet he goes, Okay, can I come and stay at your house? Yellow soil? Okay, come. So instead of going to sleep, he's sitting in the corner, watching.
Taking notes. Okay, what's the problem gonna do? He teaches us all the Hadees that we know about how the product go to sleep, which side he sleep on how we put his hand under his right cheek. He'd sleep on his right side, what he'd make all that who do we learn it from? The library. I bet some of you who are young men, young boy at the time.
He teaches us that the Prophet woke up in the middle of the night. He went to the one made his will do you know the physical when we pray if I come to leave prayer by myself, I'm praying and someone wants to join me? What side do they stand on?
How do you know? If my boss told you because it's from that incident. He said, I saw the profit make will do so I made will do like him. And I came to join them in prayer and stood on his left. So the Prophet helped me while in prayer and pulled me and made me stand on his right. All of us do that because of that one ad.
That's where we learn it.
From a young child who prayed next to the Prophet slicin.
In the masjid of the Prophet, you know, the posts the pillars. He used to tie dates, bushel of dates, and tell the Sahaba Don't touch it. This is for the kids. For the young people. They they're the only ones that can eat them. So that they come into the masjid. It's like lollies. It's like, you know candies like your Mars bars.
Who's gonna make them? Here's a Mars bar, right? Get them get them active, right? So the Prophet puts these dates, and he tells groaner don't touch these days really kids, man. I want him to come into the ministry. And that's why you see such an emphasis in the life of the prophet in raising young people upon Islam, he says to a Sabbath, there are seven categories of people who a lot will shade on the Day of Judgment, when no one will have shade except them by the will of Allah.
The second most important group of them, Sha buena Shafi party law, a young man, a young woman who's raised and nurtured upon the worship of a lot.
For many of you, if you were to ask your parents, what were you doing when you were 18?
They'd smile to themselves. Oh.
Where are you going to left back with a chef and thunderbike
were you sitting and hearing about hold on and Heidi can get and tell you right now. Go back home majority of them you say no, no, no. Oh, yeah, we used to go you know, learn from this and that but this now? The future is bright
for our Muslim ummah.
This kind of stuff didn't happen 2030 years ago. Look at the world today. Look what's happening in Egypt today. Look what's happening in Libya today. Look what's happening in Syria today. And you might say all the Syrians there Allah subhanaw taala. There's so many that are losing their lives. Allah subhanho wa Taala promises that those who are mustard, una fill out those
who have been put into oppression?
That from them from them, if not them, if they don't see it with their own eye and don't hear of it with their own ear, from their people from their tribes from their land, will be those who will be given authority by Allah subhanho wa Taala after that oppression. And you young people are a sign of the day of clamor.
you are a sign of the victory of Islam. Now, I don't want you to get a victory of Islam. We're talking about war. Not is not war. Victory is not war, the prophet was given victory.
Without battle, a lot talks about certain facts when the Prophet went to Mecca. Its victory without battle. FET is a conquest of the heart.
There's a man that begins to circulate within people's hearts. And it's a way it's almost you can see a return to the generations of the Prophet Mohammed Tyson.
In the previous generations in the last 50 to 100 years, if you look at Muslim communities, those who go into the massage those who are concerned about Islam, those who talk about Islam with the older people.
It's not that way today.
Today, those who write about Islam, those who teach about Islam, those who desire Islam, are you and I'm young, I'm young as well.
What do you mean shalom brother,
ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to use us in his surface.
For every one of us, there's 10 of us outside who needs what we know who can carry just like that day and autofair the Prophet says, carry what you know, to those who don't know,
you know, have 1020 friends of yours who are not here today, whose heart is accessible to you share with them something, tell them a little thing that can build them up.
That they have hope in a future that is bright, that Islam the victory of Islam, conquering the hearts of the masses is here. It's in, it's in our generations, and the generation of your children and the generation of their children. We are proud of the accomplishments of the oma of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam sitting amongst us and within other massage and within other communities in all different parts of the world because I travel maybe a little bit more than you. I can see in your faces, the same faces and the same taqwa the same desire for piety that I see in Toronto, that I see in Perth, that I see in Melbourne that I see in Sweden.
You go and you see and there's this young Muslim sister with a job. young Muslim brother girl, you know, little girl goatee beard, right scruffy? You know, asking questions about sooner. You actually how old are you, man? He's like, I'm 14, asking about sooner.
When you think your parents were asking about sooner at age 14. Now,
this is a different generation. This is a generation of optimism. And therefore it's a generation where on your shoulders is a great responsibility. Just like at the time of the Sahaba, those young men that the Prophet cared for, he put dates in the masjid. He'd visit them whenever he'd walked by in the street, even if he was on his camel or horse. And he saw young people he get off and say assalamu Aleikum and talk with him on the law while you listen.
Because you are the future.
are the future. You're the one who's going to be a CEO of a bank. You're the one who's going to be teaching at a university, you're the one who's going to be building a bridge, you're the one who's going to be heading up an NGO. You're the one who's going to be a homemaker and raising four or five, seven children.
You're the one
and what you are molded with today will influence generations in sha Allah to come
when hydrocarbon and the future is blessed. Every time I come to Malaysia, and I see the potential and the love and the capacity for the love of Allah and the love of his messenger Mohammed so I sell them. It's like my heart is singing.
Because it's like wow, look, look at this place. Look at these people who have come in love and in desire for Allah and His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I want to conclude with a final moment from the line.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
There was a young boy, his name does Abba Abba Abba omega.
In Arabic culture, even a young child, you can give him a kunia. You can call him Abu something.
Right? And it's meaning you hoped that this child will grow up and he will have a child named or made, which was his grandfather, or uncle's name, whatever it may be. So it's like you're projecting a bright future. So there was this young boy, his name was about Oh, my. I bought romaine. He used to have no idea a little Sparrow. A little bird that he used to have in a cage. He used to feed it and pet it and clean it and look after it and love it. And one day the bird died
ever made was maybe seven years old, five, five to seven years old. When the Prophet heard of the bird dying. He went to pay his condolences, salicylate. Can you imagine? The Prophet says to the sob Okay, come on, we're gonna go visit because someone died. They're like, Who died? Well, it was a little, no, it was a little bird.
But it's not just any bird. It belongs to this young boy. The Prophet comes to me and says to him, yeah.
What happened to your little bird?
He's talking to a young child about life and death.
He's giving him assurance of faith in Allah. He's showing him that even the Messenger of Allah the one who is in charge of the oma has time for that young child.
Never always says, you know, this and that and cries and the Prophet consoles. And so I said,
half of the, the explainer site and bajada, Ethan's a Mojave. He extracts from that one incident, more than 100 rulings of 50.
If you come and ask me, I'm a chef. Am I allowed to have a pet?
which had, am I going to use to say yes, you can. Which one? That one? Chef? Can I put a bird in a cage? Or is that cool? Which has, am I going to turn to say that one? Chef? If my bird dies, do I bury it? What do I do? Can I flush my fish down the toilet? Or do I have to bury it? Where do you go to Hawaii? Right 100 rulings from what? a young child? What did he do? His bird died? But that's our faith. That's the concern Islam has for our life for our regular life for our regular day to day activities. Man for what nothing kitabi min che Allah tells us nothing have a left covered up in this book. Everything in your faith has been declared and shown to you by Allah and through the
messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bring this Baraka down upon us and his blessing and tranquility upon us. And to bless each and every one of you in your own individual life and the life of your family and the life of your children to come from you and the generations after them. Allahumma amin
Any struggles? Any happy thoughts?
Who are the seven who were the seven who will be shaded on the day of judgment?
The Allahu anhu reports as is narrated by emammal Bahati and Muslim different narrations. Sebastian, you will know whom Allah Javi Lily he oma La Villa La Villa seven types of people whom Allah will shade on the Day of Judgment, when none other shall be shaded except by that Mercy of Allah. The first and the most important EMA munadi
adjust ruler. It's not talking about the president of a country only. Just ruler is a teacher in their classroom.
A driver in his car, someone who fulfills Adana, justice to whatever he takes upon as being given as a responsibility to him, a father to his children, a mother to her children, a husband with wife, right. Everyone who has been given a responsibility is an Imam in that dealing, Imam and Adam, those who facilitate their dealings with Sha Ganesha atila a young man young woman who is nurtured grows up, always connected to Allah.
Third, to people who meet one another and have affection and love and concern for one another for no other reason except because they both love Allah.
You know, you can look around us today you and say I may have
If we were to bump into at one Otama
maybe like, there's no reason for me to talk with this guy. What am I going to talk with him for? Why would I have love and concern for brother? Yeah, why would I have love and concern for you? The only reason that links us is our commitment to Allah to people who have affection for one another, because of their love for Allah subhanaw taala joins them together, their hearts are connected. Number four, Roger Lim Calvo, whom Allah
will massage a person whose heart is attached to the houses of worship. You you love them as you visit it often. It's not a duty, it's not a chore. Your heart seeks it wants desires it It's a place where Allah is remembered and you visited often.
Number five, Roger LearnDash humara. A man who a woman superior to human authority, and who has and who is of beauty and virtue invites him to her and he rejects her because he fears a lot says no, I'm not going to do it. Just like the example of use of alayhis salaam.
Rajan died from raw, he pushes her away. Number six, a man who gives in charity with his right hand in such secrecy that his left hand doesn't know how much he would say, what does that mean? Anytime you're going to count your money, you need to use two hands. You hold the money in one and you go. That's if you got it, right, you got to show the blade. So you're counting with the other hand. But if you just put your hand in your pocket, whatever you got, you don't count you just bang. One hand. He's given with his right hand, his left hand didn't even touch the money doesn't know how much he's given. He's given it all for a lot. Right?
a person who sits alone, not in front of anyone, he's by himself, she's by herself. And they remember Allah, they think of their relationship with their Creator, and it causes them to weep. Whether out of joy or love both the demands they give different explanations. Some say it's out of love. Others say it's out of fear. Right. Dema there I weeps out of their fear and love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That person will be granted protection on the day when others shall be in sorrow and regret.
Other questions in chat law?
The Prophet, the brother is speaking about the Hadith narrated by the man, the man
and it has various narrations. Some of them are authentic and others are not. But the Hadith in its core is a hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Estella talea, who do the Jews, their group, their nation divided into 71 sects, and the Christians if tolerated Navara 15 of Sabrina felucca in 72 seconds, was attacked telefoon Mati and my own Michelle divide into 73 sects, Kula have Kula home for now. All will enter Hellfire, except one that will be saved, and they are called and filled for Nigeria, the saved group. Now it doesn't mean they won't intergender the prophets I sell them says, all of them shall enter fire meaning that they shall have a punishment for their
division. But they will eventually all of them enter gender anyone from the oma. And that's why the prophets I seldom says me or Matthew, they're from my nation, they believe in Allah, they believe in the messenger seisen. So all of them shall enter, but some are further away from the truth than others. And you can see this, sometimes you see a person you say, Mashallah, this person, you know, they represent an example that that really is to be followed, and others are a little bit further away and there's degrees in distance from that ideal middle path of the prophets. I said limbs sooner.
So who are the 73 six, the llama are in agreement that all 73 sects emerged in their theology during the time of the Sahaba and the tambourine and the Tibetans. So by the time of Imam Ahmed and the Imam Shafi by the time of the tambourine, and the Sahaba
All 73 ideological
impurities that came into the faith were addressed and were censored. So there were moments in Islamic history, where you would be surprised to know that while the Sahaba were living, while the sister of a Chateau de La Hoya, Anna Smith, and her son of the law, it must obey you were alive Sahaba of the Prophet
Allah judge came to Mecca to arrest them,
and began to catapult stones into Mecca that destroyed two of the four walls of the Kaaba.
You ever hear about that? This is just 30 years after the death of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because there became this dissension, some wanted rules, some wanted governance, someone to the authority, right, destroying each other, and they killed some of the Sahaba right. So all of these groups have come out what remains of them is aspects of ideology. So you find for example, today in different parts of the sonic world, there is an ideology. One example is a whole adage, any of you know, what are colada
sectarians. So, part of Harada ideology is, for example, that if someone does something haraam, because of that haraam sin, they are in a state of disbelief until they stop is that from our belief, as Muslims know,
if I do something wrong, I'm still a believer. It may be that I'm weaken faith, but I'm still a person of Islam, right. And therefore a person can be a sinner and a Muslim, a person can be a sinner, who remains Muslim. And if they don't repent, Allah May punish them. And Allah may forgive them, because Allah is the one who knows. But part of the ideology of extremists is that once you do something wrong, you're a disbeliever. And therefore, you can be killed. And you find this ideology in many extremist groups.
People who do car bombings, they walk into a market in Iraq, and they put a car bomb or in Afghanistan, or in different countries around the world, and they blow it up and they kill people. Why do they do it? Because they don't believe those people are true believers. They say no, they're listening to music. They're not Muslim.
Right? That kind of ideology. So you find that kind of ideology was also found at the time of ohada. Eliade, Allahu anhu, for battle against those who had that same thinking, they would say in a Manila Leela, only Allah can make rules and judgment. Yes, that's true. But it doesn't mean that you can be killed for it. There's a enlightening
documentary that was on the BBC. You can find it on YouTube. It's called my brother, the Islamist anyone see it.
A British man, his brother accepts Islam,
but accepts Islam and joins and muhajir rune which is a federal car, which is a sect that has some extremist ideology. Right?
in six months, he's changed from being a you know, a normal British guy, to now putting things on walls that say, if you vote you have disbelieved in Allah. Because voting is cool.
If you vote, it's an apostasy. He says, You can't shake hands with someone who's not Muslim with your right hand. You have to shake with your left hand because they're dirty people.
Is this Islam? Is this the Mohammed's I sell them who allowed the Christians to sleep in his magic, I sell them and to worship and invested.
Now, this is a foreign Islam, right? So that's what meant by those they stray away from the truth. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide people back to that middle, centered, powerful way, which is the student of the Prophet Mohammed's lesson. The second part of your question is how do I know I'm there?
how do you know if you're on the truth?
Who can share?
How do you know if you are a believer?
The prophets I sell them. There was a Sahaba named haritha.
And one day the Prophet says to him just generally pay for Hi, Luca Howdy, how are you today? haritha Hadith that says, I mean, I'm a believer. Oh,
the prophets lie Selim says liquidity holding the rain for every statement. There's a proof to it. What do you mean you're a believer
So big statement brother. So Hierophant says,
when I stand to do my Salah can any aroma, it is as if I can picture that Allah is in front of me. When I'm praying, it's as if I believe in my heart, I'm standing right there, Allah is in front of me.
And the Prophet said, What else?
The Prophet said What else? He says,
When I am about to do something wrong, it is as if I can see my place in hellfire. So I stopped.
That's a sign of faith, he's measured, right?
That there is a concern for the athletes, that your heart seeks out good. You want good for others, you're not judging of others, that the path that you follow is measured by what Allah said, and what the prophet said. And whenever you don't know what Allah said, and what the prophet said, you go to those who have knowledge that can lead you in that path.
And you'll have trust in your door. That alone leads you to the true way. And when you do wrong, or when it's shown to you that the path you were upon is wrong, you stop
and you turn back. And you go back to where the truth is. You're not closed minded, at the lever is not closed minded. You're not rigid. You can never say it's only what my dad taught me. It's only what my mom said, it's only what my mother had said, You can't be that way. A believers mind is able to assess understanding, and modify it and accept it and live with it. And I conclude this statement with words of an Imam Shafi. He says, what I hold as my position, what I believe is the truth. But it could be wrong.
And what my opponent in their opinion says is wrong, but it could be right.
And I ask a lot to open my heart to the truth. That's a believer.
What I believe this is what I've been taught. It's the truth, but it could be wrong. I need to read I need to study I need to know it could be wrong. I'm not close. I'm not gonna say no, I'm not gonna read I'm not gonna hear. I'm not gonna see. It could be wrong. It's right. But it could be wrong. And what you say is wrong.
But I will look into it because it couldn't be right. And if it's right, I will follow it. That is the moderation of Islam. That's the path to truth. That's how you know with that sincerity of heart, you are upon the way of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
