few months ago,
I was invited to go and speak in a fundraising dinner in Houston for one of the Islamic charitable organizations.
And because I know myself, and I think even the brothers are listening to, to me right now in Houston, they know that I was there and that dinner, but it didn't know exactly how much I really suffered to get to that plane.
So I had kind of tight schedule, being an Imam. And your community always demanded that you need to give the homework before you leave.
And they don't want to accept anyone else to be on the number. So I apologized. But then the brothers actually insisted that I need to go there to give that speech or that lecture and the dinner I accepted, but I asked that my flight would be after Juma.
And since the schedule is so tight,
I tried to organize everything perfectly.
And I made a schedule, that would be exactly perfect. Finishing the whole bar.
And then you know, just stay for a while with the with the community, then go to the airport, and hamdulillah I'd be just in Houston. But in order to do that, I had to make a plan. And even I calculated the minutes, I would say at that time, I have to finish the hotma. At that time, I have to you know steal from other people. And then at that exact moment, I have to be in the car going to the airport and so on.
And it sounds to be handled so beautiful and so easy for me. So I have everything planned and everything on schedule, because the flight was just about an hour and a half after the hood was done.
So I had only one hour to move from the masjid, to the airport, and then to Houston.
Then I packed everything. A night before I moved to Houston. I reviewed my schedule again. And this Mila went to bed prepared myself for salata Juma
after finishing the hotma, I went out to the brothers for a while I didn't want the community not to feel that I'm leaving. So just go and shake hands over here and say Salaam over there and so on. And then after a while when it was time for me to go to the airport, I say to the world Bismillah. Let's go. So we went
and they are on the way the word is Allah here.
He said, I'm going to take you to a short short cut in short to save time.
Now that short cut, it was really short cut on miles means a few count, you know, the miles would be a shortcut. But it costs us more time to lose and on the way to the airport
that I started becoming worried a little bit about my sky was actually behind my schedule. I said, You know what, you have to hurry up a little bit.
So we arrived and handed a lot of blood I mean, and I felt relaxed a little bit because we had about 45 minutes until takeoff time and El Paso airport is not a big accident in the airport. So I thought in 45 minutes would be more than enough.
when I arrived, of course, at my airport right now, the minute I stepped into the airport,
I immediately became nervous. Because I saw lines I was not expecting because usually don't find you know, the lines come to us and at that time. And now I had all those lines, and they're all going to Houston. So I was really nervous. And a sad thing is find out what went wrong. And I said maybe it's just that short cut that I tried, you know to save time on it. I wasted the time.
I went online
and I was looking at my watch. And I said Suppan Allah, the time is passing so quickly. And we're barely moving it just crawling and I was looking at
Do you know what airline attendants are looking at the people see that everybody's careless, nobody cares that I, you know, I have to go to Houston.
And then when I arrived, and I checked my accent, even though I asked myself a question, why did I have even to carry this luggage with me? This bag with me. So I just checked in my bag, got my boarding ticket in less than five minutes. And immediately, I went, of course, to the screening area, I looked at my watch, I had about 25 minutes left to take off. So hamdulillah
then 100 alerts gonna be okay, I'm still back on schedule.
I arrived at the screening area.
And again, after I was released,
I felt butterflies in my stomach. Because they were longer even lines and those that I have seen there and the chicken area.
So I thought that's it. I'm done.
Like saying, I'm doomed.
There is no way I lost, I missed the aeroplane.
And I was standing the looking around. Every one second, I would look back again to my watch, it's going even faster than usual. And even I started thinking about my school what I have done wrong, you know, I start looking at my schedule sets part of it, everything seems to be perfect for me. I did, I made a smart plan,
at least you know, and to save time. And just to arrive on time.
Then when I couldn't find any mistake in my plan, at least in my assumption, I start blaming everybody around me saying it must be the brother who took me to the airport, you know, Subhanallah if I just you know, those people, they don't they don't move fast. Those guys over they're done doing a lousy job, these people blaming everyone except myself.
Then I realized that the fact that I needed to blame first myself, I said, Maybe I shouldn't carry with me that back. If I just didn't have anything, any burden, I will just go and make a self, you know, check in and that's it. I'll be on board.
But anyway, I was looking
at my watch. And they were less than 10 minutes for takeoff.
So I was trying to I was trying to get him to run or push the people in front of me. But nobody seems to be you know, realize that I'm in a hurry.
Until I passed, you know, the checkpoint.
And then I look back to my watch less than three or three, four minutes for takeoff. I started running.
Now because this is the last chance that I have to catch up. I started running with my boarding ticket in my hand, I arrived at the at the gate and the lady behind the desk even without asking me, where are you going? She said over there, pointing to the gate. So just one day, and they took my boarding ticket, and I got in
walking towards the aeroplane, I was so proud of that achievement that
I got in there. And I was so proud of that achievement, and even
the embarrassment that I have from the faces of the people. Everybody's looking at me. So this is the guy who's you know, delaying the flight and so on. But he didn't care about that, because I made it a hamdulillah I made it.
And they told me very sorry. You have to go, you know, there's the last seat in the aeroplane. And I didn't even mind that's fine. The last one, at least I made it and was literally the last one was the last in the back of the plane.
And because I was so happy that I made it actually on the plane.
We just went off and going to Houston.
Maybe after 45 minutes flying. I heard the pilot saying that we are arriving at Dulles Airport.
But yet still I was so happy that didn't even pay attention to them much. And I said maybe it's a mistake.
So just keep going on reading my book.
A few minutes after that.
The pilot said again
that we arrived at the Dallas airport.
And there I was shocked.
So I turned my face to the guy next to me. I said is this is a connection flight or something. He said yes. What are you going? So now I'm going to Houston. He said, Oh my God.
So we're actually gone to Austin
and you can imagine my
face at that moment.
I was shocked. And the guy was, you know, just with wide eyes. See? And then when he saw my face, actually even at that moment, for those few seconds, I had that, you know, that trail of images coming into MIT what went wrong in my life?
I what really went wrong in my schedule? That didn't know I didn't realize that I was going at the right airport. Then when the man who saw me that way, you know, he said, No, I'm just kidding actually going to Houston.
And they're just there. I felt the comfort and the relief
after that, the first thing that came to my mind
were the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In surah, Al Kahf little eisegesis says
odubel Amina Shantanu Raji
polhill noona boo, x arena, Allah,
Allah de nada la fille hyah dounia Bohemia, una
la la Vina cafaro Biya to not be him money
to moolah, whom Jamelia Matthew was
with me means the translation, say,
shall we tell you of those who lost most in respect of their deeds, those whose efforts have been wasted in this life, while they thought that they were acquiring good by their works?
There are those who deny the science of the load. And the fact of their having to meet him in the Hereafter, vain will be their works. No, shall we, on the day of judgment, give them any weight, that is their reward hell, because they rejected faith, and took my sons and my messengers, by way of just
the gates of the airplane were orphaned.
And almost all of the people went out in my assumption at the wrong airport.
Only few who stayed on board, we will only three who wish to go and continue the flight to Houston.
Now then, in those few minutes while waiting for people to get into the plane, in order to go to Houston, I started thinking about this ayah
Subhana Allah can the airport of the past years
that we have been doing in our life just can go in vain like this on the Day of Judgment,
all that devotion, or that dedication, your life? Can it just go like that? Because although you plan everything, but yet, on the day of judgment, you'll never know. You might learn at the wrong airport.
Even though we strive in this life, and you know yourself, how much people you know, they devote some time for the last panel with Allah for water for a banner. And some people they strive you know, and the even the compared to when they compare themselves to other people, they said, handle, at least I'm praying, I'm better than those people don't pray. I'm better than those people who don't even show up in the method. I'm better than those people who do such and such. We compare ourselves to them. But yet, we don't know if we're doing the right thing, even in the first place. We don't know if you're going to be even landing arriving at the right airport and the Judgment Day.
Why don't we even get, why don't we really get the sweetness of our good work, the hard work, we don't feel it. And I'm sure that sometimes people they come for subtle Juma and they leave they really don't feel it. They come from Saudi Arabia, but they don't feel that they have done something, you know, major in their life. Why? Because it became a custom tradition. We don't know exactly if we're doing I think or not, and I'm sure maybe you heard some people when you talk to them about worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala and come and pray. They would come with you. And if they asked them others ask them why do you Why do you come to the masjid anyway? So it well just in
you might not know you know, it might be true. And if something happens in the Day of Judgment, this unhandled I would come with you know, what Sala Lucien was aka would worship
whether anybody else
You know, I really don't claim that I can make miracles. And I don't claim by this lecture that you will just completely change your life like this. It is something that you need to change from inside from your heart, but I can assure inshallah, that if you listen carefully and attentively, you will, number one, identify the defect that you have in your data and your worship, you will realize what went wrong.
You would learn number two, you will learn the essence of worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. What does it mean? Number three, you will practice your Avada the right way, the act of fortune, the right way. Number four, you will enjoy the sweetness of worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. And number five, which is the most important thing
I'll assure you, that you follow those instructions, you will for sure,
arrive on the judgment day at the right Airport.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
as in Sahil Bukhari he instructed even Omar rhodiola Talon, the young companion and he told him confit dunya can
that act in this dunya misses when you live in this life and you'd like to live this life at as a stranger
or have been a traveler.
Which is something that so many people they miss understand, and they don't realize
that they are traveling in this life.
We are all on the same aeroplane.
And we are all taking the same flight going to the same destination with two different airports. Whether Elgin or Jana?
Have you ever seen someone traveling in your life without taking any provision with him?
And when I say provision doesn't necessarily mean food.
Does anybody travel without carrying at least cash with him?
credit cards, they would carry it with them. But nobody travels without cutting any provision his pocket?
Have you ever seen someone travels? Without a full plan?
You don't see that. Unless somebody is just careless. Have you ever seen someone travels, especially if you drive without taking a map with them, to direct them and instruct them where to go, and how to arrive at that place? You know, the fast the shortest way and the fastest way? You don't see those people do not go and just like this without taking any consequences of their mistakes.
Now the example I have given you, the example I have given you is exactly which is the story that I told you about myself. It is exactly a typical scenario for what you're going to see on the Judgement Day.
We are all going to be traveling. Look at my situation. I hope I was smart. And hungry. I was so intelligent that I had a perfect plan.
I planned for everything. I said no mistake should be in that falasca if I follow that schedule, because I did that on my own.
I think I'm gonna be smart enough to do my own plan.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala had his own plans.
The same thing. When I was going to the airport, the brother misled me. And he said, Let me take a shortcut. How many shortcuts have we taken in our life?
How many people they misguided you by saying you know, this is easier. Don't take this up. And this is more strict. Take this one. Don't do this, do that and so on. taking shortcuts in our life,
trying to arrive at the airport, you know faster, and with less burden and responsibilities.
How many of those people they came to you? And they thought you thought that they would guide you to the right way, but taking you somewhere else. The same thing you would be worried because you don't know exactly what you're going to face there at the airport. And when I got into the airport, I came to the reality of life.
And when you go to the Judgement Day, you will see the reality of the final day.
And that's when you're gonna see lines, people standing there waiting for the judgement day to start
And then I had to stand there Why? You know why? Because I got luggage with me. If I just came there with, you know, with the most valuable thing, what I carry in my pocket, you know, when you travel, what do you put the most valuable things, they put them in, you know, in the bag, what you put in your pocket,
usually record in their hands, or their pockets, anything is that it's not valuable for them, they put it in the bag, not much valuable, of course. And even it's less valuable, they put it in boxes.
So they put boxes, and they just have the address and names on it. And even sometimes they tie it with you know why? Because it's not valuable so much. Yet, it keeps them there longer. In order to check in those luggage and those bags. Imagine the Day of Judgment, you come in,
meeting Allah subhanho wa Taala with 10 bags, and 100 boxes. Why? Because you were so busy. And in this domain, we're packing for the Day of Judgment, the wrong thing.
But the valuable thing that you have was supposed to be in the pocket or in your hand.
nothing compared to that thing.
And you know that on the Day of Judgment, there will be something like personal check in
meaning what can acknowledge
the 70,000 people that the prophet SAW said and promised that they will enter agenda without any reckoning that any account and nothing.
Bring those 70,000 people take them to origin now?
Are you going to be one of them? Are you going to have luggage with you waiting in line to see how much this is going to wait in line with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And even when you travel, you will see that on the Day of Judgment, it looks the same
station after station, one event after the other. Michelle had the old piano, you finish one thing. And if you think that it's you, you're done. And then you go all the hard work, another test and another test and another test.
The first test before the shefa the construction of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and then after the shofar, then you have your account and then you don't know exactly what are you going to grab the book of deeds. And then after you grab it in the right hand, where are you going to go? And then you go to hold on the vessel, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and some people, they're going to be deterred and deprived from drinking from the hand of the Prophet sallallahu taken away, and then you move towards somewhere else, and then another station and another station until you arrive at the slot. Whether or not 15 are going to easily be deceived. The way I was deceived, easily. That lady behind the desk, she said just right there, and I trusted her and they went
immediately, maybe to the wrong airport.
Maybe the wrong flight. She didn't even ask Where are you going?
And sometimes it's happens in the last moment of your life. When the professor isn't mentioned in this article must do Abdullah must not be allowed on.
That the person with dedicate his life for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala until just about before his death, yes, before the hill kita cutter would approach Him and He will just have a kind of major change in his intention and in his good deeds, and they end up in hellfire.
And the same thing people they would lead in a sinful life. And just before the death, the cutter would approach them would catch them and then they would have a switch and their intentions and the last panel accept their repentance and would be led to the right airport allied flight. It might happen with you even in dystonia.
You will be doing Mashallah perfect. And you assume that you're doing well.
But be careful. You might be misled, easily by so many people in this life. Now again, this is the example. This is the example. You are a traveler, whether you like it or not. You have been traveling maybe for 20 years, 15 years, 35 years, 60 years, 50 years, how old are you? You have been traveling all that time. We're to the hereafter it Allah subhanho wa Taala and soon you got to be arriving at that airport or landing at one of those two airports.
Make sure that you take the right flight before you die. And make sure that when you land on the judgement day that you would land at the right airport
for hire Allah Jannati admin for in mind
As you know, Lula Mo, so come come along to the Garden of Eden to generate an alpha dose for Indeed, there are the real home and the sweet domicile is there and
you ask yourself a question. Is there anybody out there even listening to us to show on the internet? Is there anybody out there who's ready for Jenna, and is folding his or her sleeves to start working properly, serving Allah subhanho wa Taala, in order to assure themselves to arrive at the right airport?
In Amazonia, it'll genetti one natori one layer Li mature in sunny 1am. So that indeed, this dunya is one path, it's a path to two different destinations. algin our na,
what is the market of this life, it's your days and nights. That's where you trade with Allah subhanho wa Taala you're trading with your good deeds, trading with the last pan on what Allah to shoot for yourself, and safe landing on the Judgment Day. Because you know, it doesn't really matter how perfect the landing was.
It doesn't matter how perfect it would be, unless it would be on the right or at the right. Runway, or airport.
if you know,
and you have that concern, that you really need to review your schedule, and see if you're doing well or not. And if you would like to see if you really carrying with you the right provision or not. Now, here's the point.
What is the provision that you carry with you on Judgement Day?
Is it your estate? Your house? Your cars,
your certificate education, your money? What is the provision that you carry with you on Judgement Day?
Can you have an answer?
Just say it, you're these. This is the provision that you carry with you, your deeds. And when you say your deeds, what does it mean? Have you ever thought of this?
What does it mean to say your deeds?
What does it mean?
It means your worship your abanda. Because everything you do in this life, you're going to be held accountable for it, whether good or bad. And that's a bad.
Because you need to know if you do if you're going to do it, then you have to make sure that you're doing the right thing. And you're doing it right.
So it is your data. And if you as you know, since we have that limited time in our life, you might live only for 50 years 60 more or less, Allah knows when your time is going to come. But if you know that you have that limited time, then it becomes very essential for every individual to ensure the quality of his data.
And I'm sure that some people that have been striving you know, in the time, Mashallah for the last panel with Allah for years and years, but the quality of the rabada
is not that much. So how much is this going to weigh on the day of judgment in the scale, it is very important to know that your provision is the right provision that you carry with you. Now,
if you ask yourself a question
why Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us to recite Surah Al Fatiha at least 17 times a day. If you maintain five times a day prayers, then you're going to be reciting Surah Al Fatiha at least 17 times the right or wrong.
Okay. Why do we reset certain factors 17 times a day then?
What is the point? What is so special about social media? Why don't we recharge?
Why not? We'll ask her why certain
people will be like me will like you, let's say you say well, maybe it's because it's so important. So Alaska chose it for that reason. People like him and we'll pay him or him Allah tala. He wrote a book on that and the reason why do research on fat and 17 times a day.
And that book came out in three volumes. And so it over here in the bookstore even
that's the book of Medallia just said a keen being economically I can assign the steps of the travelers between the stations of a yak and
yak, Anna Stein. And I'm sure that Iraq and Afghanistan are familiar words to you.
Are the verses that you recite every day in your Salah? He cannot Buddha he cannot study.
Every day you do that, what does it mean?
This is your provision.
If you do not care if you do not care about this provision, you might arrive at the wrong airport and a day of judgment. Because this is your Eva.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says yaquina Buddha can Stein which means it is You we worship, and You are Allah, we ask for help for assistance. You we worship, and You we ask for help, and for assistance, arriving at the right airport that Monday entails the proper implementation of a yackin, Abu yaquina Stein, which is your provision, and you are a vida. You Allah, we worship, and it's You we ask for help. So it's not how much how much hard work you put, you know, your good deeds. It's the quality of that good deed? Is it going to be accepted by our last panel with Allah? Have you done that the proper way? Are you doing it sincerely to Allah? So john, then what are the conditions and the
privileges of that, that ensures that you would be on the right track?
So it's not just doing the right thing? Or actually doing things, right? It's doing the right thing in the first place? Are you doing the right thing? And then when you do it,
are you going to do it right?
This is now the quality of your webinar.
And this is the meaning and understanding of economics, where you can assign a man will tell you more homology, and in that book, he meant he made a comment. And he said that those two words are divided between the Lord and His servant equally a cannibal. It is You we worship and yaquina Stein, and it's you we asked for help divided equally between Allah subhanho wa Taala and the servant. One half is for the Lord Almighty, which is a yak and it's You we worship and one half is for his servant. And that is and it's You we ask for help. So if you are really looking to perfect our ibadah then we need to perfect the concept of a cannibal and I can Stein
any act of worship had to fulfill those two prerequisites
that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and you seek help from him and assistance which is a token we will explain those inshallah together. Number one, first, yak and avid, it is you or Allah, we worship
a vida, any act of worship, Salah cM zeca smiling in the face of your brother or sister and they will say the beautiful word. When you abstain from something Haram. These are all other acts of Ivana.
They stand on two pillars. They stand on two pillars and they are very important pillars in order to have those regards accepted. Number one,
when you make any act of worship, you have to make sure that they're going to stand on those two pillars. Number one, the extreme love to Allah subhanho wa Taala Why do you pray? Is it because there's an obligation that you have to do it?
When you pray when you come to the masjid? This is because you went you just want to come with a congregation. When you come to the masjid. I will doing it because Allah subhanho wa Taala says so and you love to please Allah azza wa jal by fulfilling the obligation or less power to Allah made upon you. Why do you do the acts of worship? And I'm sure there are some times and some moments when we start questioning even our salah
and you say, Well, why is this happening to me? I'm a handler I maintain five times a day. I'm not like this guy or this people, this person or those even non Muslim song.
Meaning that the love to Allah subhanho wa Taala did not penetrate to your heart. It's something superficial.
And the second pillar for any act of worship
is the extreme submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as you know,
after all Islam was called Islam because of submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So when you worship Allah azza wa jal Do you really do. You're doing it because you submit to the command of Allah subhana wa Tada. you're submitting to the will of Allah azza wa jal. You're just doing it because you know you enjoy doing it. That's fine. I don't care about Jenna or Johanna, I don't care about
I just want to do it because I like to do these things. Why do you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala
and Allah azza wa jal summarize that in one ayah Allah
to him Boone Allah
say that if you love Allah
the logical consequence if you feel love Allah what should it be?
this clause that say it
love his prophet. He didn't say love my prophet. He said that who only vevo como la la Komodo welcome voila hula for him. That is say oh Mohammed that if you love Allah, then follow me.
Follow me. Didn't say they love me love the Prophet Mohammed said he said Follow me. follow the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So, meaning what so many people can claim to love Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anybody else, they would say that they would claim it.
But Allah Subhana Allah doesn't care about your claim. He wants to prove, show it to me. If you really love Allah azza wa jal, then show it to Allah subhanho wa Taala How do you show it not just by saying it, you say it first and then prove it? By the good deeds and the submission to Allah azza wa jal
even playing him alone explaining this he said
that sometimes you love someone, but you don't submit to the world.
Is that correct? So you really love someone but you don't submit to the world? Can we consider this a bad or warship?
Not necessarily. The people, somebody who, for example, you might love your spouse, your child, your teacher, someone else. But they ask you to do something that they don't like, What do you say?
Find someone else.
And that's sometimes happens between and on in the family life and the relationship between husband and wife, that the husband and the wife she gets upset with her husband. And then the guy he pulled he goes on he starts proving that he loves her. I buy allies for Bella I love you. She said You're lying.
I might he might you know sincere about it. He's sincere about his love. But she says I don't believe you. You're lying. Why?
Because your actions has louder voice
that contradicts with your words. I can hear your voice. But there is a louder voice. That's your actions. The same thing with the last panel what Allah will Allah Allah, Allah Allah, the highest example of Allah azza wa jal, you might claim it say I love Allah azza wa jal, but look at your actions. Allah says a Riba Haram. Interest is haram. We have our money, you know with interest. Allah says that drinking or doing this is haram. We go and sell it. Allah says this says that and so forth, and we do we go and contradict our actions with our statements.
And the last panel that I didn't say, If you love me, love my Prophet said, follow his example perfectly.
If you implement that example of the love of the Prophet Salah Salem perfectly then you're coming closer to the
methodology of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and which means perfection. And of course, a shoe issued or so that you're going to be landing at the right airport. Now if you look at it, the other the other is actually part of it. And sometimes you might submit submit to someone but does not necessarily mean that you love this person.
Like for example, you know, you would be driving in one of those highways and then
followed by a policeman, they stopped going to give you a ticket. Why did you stop in the first place is because you love him.
It is something to check out with them say Oh, just like Allah him Allah reward you for it. I really appreciate that. I was waiting for this for a long time. You never say that.
But you submit to the world why? Because you have to do it because you're gonna get a ticket.
Or sometimes we were the president. He had to submit to the gods. It's not because he loves them and he loves to go you know, to sell them in prison, just the he has to follow the orders. Now if you follow the orders without love, this is not worship.
And so many people they follow the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala without having that sincere love to Allah azza wa jal over everything.
So they miss you know, understand the concept of worshipping Allah azza wa jal and some people they have that love to Allah subhana wa but just to be just mystical love.
They love them and they declare that to everyone.
And you know, some people you met you might have even met some of those people when you discuss with them issues of the man on salah and so, okay, why don't you go go and pray with us then said listen
my Eman is in my heart. You don't know exactly what is there in my heart. I have the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala feeling my heart. Okay show it to me in action.
So it's the same thing you can do that and iya can avoid that what entails the extreme love to Allah azza wa jal and that of course extreme submission to his will soprano Ouattara
now what do we learn from this?
When you worship Allah azza wa jal have the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala present in your heart.
Number two, love is not just sentiments that you you know, you just expressed by lip service, you feel it you just feel that you love Allah. It's not a matter of feeling that you love Allah azza wa jal is that you're doing it, you're practicing it. And people they think that the word love is only a noun. It's actually it's a verb. And when you if you really want to love Allah other than love him,
you might say, What are you talking about? He's not even English. If you love Allah subhanho wa Taala, then love him. And if you love anyone, then you have to love him. What does it mean, if you love your wife, prove it to her.
You know, buy flowers, buy gifts, buy beautiful words, vacation, something like that, and so on giving your credit card, maybe something like that, you have to prove it.
Now, if you love Allah subhanho wa Taala, then let him prove it to him. Number three, it is not enough to claim that we love our last panel, whatever it is that we need to prove it. And that's by doing it, of course,
the proper way.
Allah does not need our own proof. He needs us to follow His commands as a proof. You don't come on the Day of Judgment carry on luggage. And if I was to ask you about your Aveda, you say, Well, I bought all of this with me.
And if it wasn't what Allah subhanaw taala was asking from you. He was trying to keep it there. I don't need it. I need this. Did you get the five daily prayers? Did you get some Ramadan? Did he get this or that? That's what he asked me about.
Number five submission and showing submission to his world is by following those commandments, because Allah subhana wa codici
will love that his servant
throwing himself near to Him through what, through what he made obligation upon him, Well, not a quarter of a layup. dbca in a heartbeat a master of
nothing better, nothing better, you know of a bad actor very bad at that you can it makes you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala more than the obligations Allah made upon you don't create your own worship, you know, act of a vida and said handler, I'm pleased I'm doing this.
You know, some people don't will occur, they are so generous in charity. so generous, they pay in hundreds of 1000s and even millions. And when you ask them to come to pray, they would say I'm doing my part 100 Allah Jazakallah but there's another part of last 100 was asking you for.
And you have to make sure that when you submit, you submit to the real will of Allah as the second part of this area, but yakka next time.
And that belongs to a call
that we seek help from you or Allah telecon if you look at the translation for the water code, you'll find you know, it's gonna create confusion for you. So I'd rather use the word terracotta in the Arabic language, which is close to the, you know, reliance on allies origin and dependence on Allah subhanho wa Taala because, you know, it's difficult sometimes to translate the word tawakkol by itself, but understanding the concept, because this also stands on two pillars. This is also stands on two pillars.
And those pillars are number one.
If you claim that you are motivated kill a person who have that tawakkol reliance in a large region. Number one, you have to have full trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala
Do you trust Allah in all your affairs? And when it comes to even to the ohana, we have the full trust? Because you don't know you don't own it anyway. It's in the hands of Allah azza wa jal. So you put your trust in Allah, Allah subhana wa forgive me and the larger we admit Mateljan, having that hope. But when it comes for dunya, something related to provision and our life, no, you have to you have to do your part. You have to do your part. Otherwise the last part that will not help you.
Well, the same thing for the army.
You have to have the trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. But work for it in the same time, in order to get the help from Allah subhanho wa Taala, the help of guidance.
So the first part, the first pillar is to have that full trust in Allah azza wa jal and the second pillar to have full dependence, which is again, a reliance, that you have that full dependence in Allah subhanho, wa Taala, in everything, everything in there, first of the acula and the first of this dunya, even your provision,
put it in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But yet, take the means, and work for it.
The same thing, as we said, in economics, it goes also to you can assign some people, they might trust someone, but they don't rely on them.
How many people you trust, but you cannot rely on them, and your life
And you might trust all those people around you in this message. But if you ask someone to go and fix your car, are you going to give it to anyone,
you have to give it to someone that you trust.
And if you put if you know, write a check, are you give it are you gonna give it to anyone,
you might trust them that they're not going to cash it to their account. But you know that this person is careless, this person is you know, such and such, so you don't rely on them.
Some people they did with the last pilot and in the same manner.
In the same manner, they trust a law surgeon, but they don't rely on him.
So when it comes to the issue that I feel, I handle, everything is the hand of a law surgeon. But when it comes to this dunya I have to work 16 hours a day in order to sustain my family.
Yeah, this is suicide. This is spiritual suicide. You're killing yourself and your family.
16 hours, what is left you go back home we exhausted and we're kids talk to you, you know, when they die even talking to you or just approach you, you'll be completely exhausted and waiting for them to go to bed.
So you have that trust in the last pinata, but you don't rely on a last resort that he will sustain you and take care of you better than yourself.
And it's another case another scenario, you find some people,
they rely on others, but they don't trust them.
Why? Because there is no one else.
You have a problem, let's say plumbing problem at home. And you you go and you bring that plumber on when he come you call a plumber actually when he comes in,
you say this is going to fix my kitchen.
When there's because there is no time. And there is no other person maybe or cheaper than this guy. So that's it, let him do it. You don't trust them. But there is no one but him to do it for you. So you have to rely on him. Some people they did with the last part and the same manner.
They do not trust a law surgeon
but they rely on him for their own Shabbat and desires.
They only asked the last part of her help to fulfill their own desires.
If Allah subhanaw taala would you know help me do this or that overlap made haram for them.
So it's not a matter of trust, but they are lying in the last panel data for this thing. You cannot be a true worshipper of Allah surgeon until you bring both categories he can avoid and he can Stein
and when you say he can avoid, then you have to have that extreme and full love. absolute love to Allah subhanho wa Taala an absolute submission to his world. And when it comes to Yakima Stein, it's the same thing. You have to bring the two pillars with it. And that is that full and absolute trust in Allah subhana wa tada and then the absolute reliance on him and dependence on him subhanho wa Taala if you want to do that.
Now, before you start any act of worship, before you start any act of worship, you have to question yourself
Why are you doing this? What for?
And usually because it becomes a habit for us. So this question goes to the back of our mind and slowly slowly just
you know jumps off your mind even so when someone comes in ask you this question telling you lesson anonymously becomes an ask you and it tells you why do you pray. So you'll find yourself?
Well, because it's good, because it's, you know, you feel relaxed. If you're this if you're that and you forget that the first answer should be
Because Allah says,
because this is the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they have to submit
people outside, they do not submit to the will of Allah azza wa jal
and you should feel, should feel proud that you submit to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
if you would like to do any act of worship, you have to make sure that this Avada this act of Riba should also fulfill two conditions. Number one,
doing it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sincerely, which we call as loss. If loss, if you want to pray, then you pay only for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And number two,
you have to follow the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
It was not left for you here, you know, I usually go and speak in
different communities and also in El Paso, I go to community college, go to the university and give lectures about Islam and so on. And I have been confronted with some, you know, some students and questions like, Well, I do believe in God, but I worship him the way I think it suits it suits him or suits me.
So each one of them is trying, you know, to form his own warship based on his own belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I keep telling them, that doesn't work with Allah Xhosa.
Allah won't accept that. Because it's not for you. Because if Allah subhanaw taala can leave this for us, then in this Masjid, how many different way of worship we're going to have
as many people as we have in this hall, and this message?
Could each one of us, you know, is different? And you're going to think in a different way? Yes, might two or three people they might, you know, have the same way of thinking, but not perfectly yet. Allah subhanaw taala did not leave this for us. He said, If you love me, then follow the example of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So you have those two conditions that you need to fulfill, worshiping with last
sincerity, and that is doing the right thing.
Then I'll matava following the example of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that is of course, that doing the right thing, right? You do the right way.
In an alpha ganando him Allah tala once was asked about the ayah that Allah subhanaw taala says tabouleh can levy via the hill muku Allah coalition Cody, Allah, Allah, Allah, moto and hayata, Leah, Beluga, au, come us and ohama Allah,
that Allah subhana wa Taala created life and death, to test us who is going to be the best in their work and good deeds the best in their good deeds, which is the best provision that you can carry with you the most valuable provision that you will carry with you on the judgement day that will be in your hand or in your pocket, not in your luggage. He was asked that question, what does it mean?
What does it mean to say us and I'm Allah, the best work and the best good deed? He said, a lot. So who was
the sincere? The most sincere walk? Was wabo? The correct?
And when you say correct, not according to your standard. No, it's the standard of the prophets. Allah Sallam said to us before his death in his lifetime.
I remember when we used to be in a German University, and I guess, Mohammed, he knows chef.
Chef, haha, he used to travel, you know, to, especially after the collapse of communism, they used to travel to those new Muslim nations coming out from the USSR.
And he said that one time he went to one of the cities of those Muslim country like Pakistan because of his stance on and they attended some kind of Islamic event that they had. And some people they were worshipping through dancing.
You know, they have their own customs and traditions and so forth. So, after they are done, one man he came and he was about 60 years old. He said, she said about 60 years old, and even maybe older than that.
Maybe he was 70 something.
So he came to the shape and he was so proud of himself, you know, with all that sweat on his body and so on. So the chef, what do you think?
And the chef didn't know what to tell him. But you know, try to remember the truth in a very nice way.
He asked him, did the prophet SAW lesson and practice that?
And he himself he didn't know.
So it was explained to him that the Prophet seven did not worship Elijah and that manner and that way,
the man, he got very disappointed.
And he said,
Subhana, Allah, I have been doing this for 60 years,
60 years then of the communism, they didn't know, and he didn't have any access to the, you know, authentic way of worship, except for some people that they had on their areas. So for 60 years, are you telling me that all of this has gone? You know, in vain?
The chef he said to him, Well,
I don't say that, may Allah accept from you. But what I'm telling you this was wrong.
Which brings the question,
what about the good intention? Allah subhanaw taala results with with orientations, the right and it doesn't matter if you're doing the right thing or not. It's just if you had good intention, Allah will accept from you. That's what usually people say.
So if if I really was so sincere,
and I was doing all this type of work,
but then it appeared to be not according to the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, can we say that it's gonna just go in vain?
Now, the answer to this,
number one, good intention does not justify errors.
It doesn't justify the error, or the mistake, having good intention doesn't mean that what you're doing is right, does not mean that what you're doing is right. Number two, good intention does not convert falsehood into truth.
Cannot be if you said something, and you said that you thought that you were saying the truth, out of good intention, what was wrong, doesn't mean that what you said was right, doesn't make it right or truth.
But yet, when it comes to the reward, it's in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To reject that, or to accept that, what we know that Allah subhanaw taala, won't accept, except what he made mandatory upon us, and what the prophet says and set for us as an example. Therefore,
anything that you learned in your lifetime, if it was, you know, in the airlines, because I know some people, they don't feel, you know, comfortable opening a book of poker nowadays, to read about how to make wudu. Or even how to use the toilet,
or supine alarm, you know, I know how to do that, or even how to pray, which is very important, but even how to speak to people how to smile in their face, and while you're doing that, how to deal how to treat your wife, your children, your colleagues, and so on. We don't do that why, because we do that by nature, we can do it. But yet, you have to make sure that if you want this, this need to be accepted, you have to make sure that it is done sincerely to Allah subhanho wa Taala and then is done the right and the proper way.
Arriving at the right airport entails that you enjoy your Avada you enjoy your Eva
and enjoying Godiva feeling the sweetness of your Avada
it's very difficult, unless you really realize the meaning of economics, where you can assign the love to Allah, the submission to his boss upon without the trust in Him and the full dependence and reliance on Allah azza wa jal
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as you know, we used to call for the karma What did you say
Nava Vila come forth as us with the Salah. Bring us comfort by calling for the farmer. Nowadays the people they say another gentleman hi Avila just let's do it and and finish it for the Salah. The Prophet says I'm used to enjoy you used to enjoy his Salah when people right now they feel it as a burden and obligation more than enjoying their Salah. And the last panel what Allah commanded us
at the end of Surah Al Emraan Yeah, you have Latina man? Yeah you holla de la mano spirou wasabi Bureau.
This bureau Are you believe this Bureau? is half patient, wasabi room call upon others in order to have patience. What are we to maintain that patience and perseverance? What duckula and fear Allah azza wa jal La La come to your home so that you might be successful on the Day of Judgment.
Some other scholars
Even though they're only allowed and used to say that I used to, to drive my soul to Allah subhanho wa Taala while it was crying means he used to force himself for that Ivana said until, until I arrived at the, at the moment or the limit, where I use I started driving my soul to Allah subhanho wa Taala why my soul would be smiling, or laughing?
How can you maintain or get this sweetness of a better? Number one?
Do you had enough? I'll leave you with this inshallah, as an advice for myself, and for all of us here.
Number one, do you have enough
you have to struggle against your own desires. This is a Jihad that you need to make against your own desires. And we are human beings. I'm sure that right now you feel your Eman is getting high and high.
And you think yourself, you know in the rights of workers.
Or maybe a little bit like journalists.
But then the minute you know, you just cross out of this door,
you feel you have changes since the policy I told you, and whenever
you have to have that sincerity, and that you had for your neffs until you die.
If you're looking you know for the pleasure of this life,
in a man without a struggle or jihad, then you're dreaming. This is not here. That's another life. Number two,
abandon the sinful life.
The major and the minor.
Don't start don't sit in front of the TV. And then whenever let's say some kind of bad image comes in and says stuff.
You just you know, just turn your face away and so on.
Don't throw yourself in the water and then you know, don't get wet. Be careful.
So, abandon the major the sinful life the major and the minor. Number three, seeking halaal provision in the law Ebola lotto Jeeva, Allah subhanaw taala.
Good, I won't accept anything except that good thing that you bring with you. And number four, recognizing that the pleasure is in a bother anything else in this life is ephemeral, and will soon vanish by death.
Remember, you are a traveler. And someday you're going to arrive at your final destination. Your final destination is not in the grave. It's there on Judgement Day. So make sure that you take the right flight and this life you take the right way that I tried to Allah subhanho wa Taala so that ensure that when you land and when you arrive on the Day of Judgment, you will arrive at the right airport. I wish you all a safe trip in this life and the life to come Salalah Nabina Muhammad while earlier you also have your Salah.
