Mashallah muramasa to Hakuna Matata timbira wakulla with atom de la la, la la la la Dalton phenothiazine mama bada ba de la Maddy brothers and sisters, as an Imam, as a traveling speaker in different different cities in different communities. I received a lot of questions from people, whether via email, social media, or even in person. Some had a lot not so many people probably noticed that if you don't get that frequent, you know, kind of question from people. But is a new trend is happening for the past maybe a year or so have been more than I've been noticing within the Muslim community. A lot of these questions just
have the same thing underlining theme, never every single question whether it's about their personal relationship with their spouse, with their children, some people that have issues at work, some people that have issues growing up in a culture like this, some people that have issues with Islam altogether Subhanallah they have issues when they go to school when they go to work, so many things, the underlining theme of all this question, no matter what question people are asking, there is a great amount of confusion in the minds and the hearts of people. Confusion has become one of the greatest return that we have in our time. Unfortunately, people are confused, what lie they're
confused. They don't know what to do next. Maybe I'm speaking about myself speaker about you as well. Because in time like ours, when we see what the situation the world is, how the Muslims are now being treated in this country. And what do we see on the TV, just if you just want to kind of relax or even just would like to do something out of the ordinary, and you're gonna want something random, you find something has to do with us being Muslim.
Whether it's something like an attack on your identity, or on your culture, on your belief system, on your faith for Muslims and non Muslims. Confusion is becoming the greatest fitna right now that many, many people are dealing with. But it just one of these Fitton that the prophet SAW Lawson described, you know, to us that will happen as a sign of the Day of Judgment. In this quote, by would like to share with you a few things, how can we stay safe? How can you find safety in terms of trials, in terms of old you all of these and fitten? How can we find safety, this is what I'm going to be talking to you about a shallow terracotta Allah. But before that, I want you to know that this
is an inevitable reality. What does it mean?
The End of Time, as we come closer to the day of judgment and the end of this course of this life of the this world, as a professor described, there be a lot of fit and the signs are all out there for us. Didn't he says sallallahu wasallam of the signs of the Day of Judgment. People you know, the shepherds, and and, and the bedrooms and so on. They're competing and building skyscrapers, we see these signs. Then he says Allah sallallahu wasallam one of the biggest signs of the Day of Judgment, prosperity, fitness to sahra, the great fitness trial of a surah which means prosperity, the kind of wealth the kind of universe prosperity, the world have arrived to Subhan Allah is just unprecedented
never heard of before in the history of mankind, that the average human being lived probably, you know, in the world per live like the life of Lords maybe 100 200 years ago, and that's unheard of before is the from the Phaeton the time almost close to the end of it. When people think that they have control over this world as Allah subhanho wa Taala says had the opposite Rafa was 101 the Earth x of zero which means a beauty and, and all the decoration all the fancy things in this world, one Allah cardrona Allah and people when they see the adornment of this world, they thought that they took control over this world. When this when they realize now the laws of physics, the laws of
chemistry, the laws of biology and everything now they think oh, we figured it out harmless suddenly, we know everything about this world. That is the time when the end probably going to start coming Lumsden and without a lot of confusion, a lot of fitten the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says in the Hadith
that there will be fitten Kakuta la Muslim, the time will come when fit and means trials and orders will be like goodbye Ll Muslim like the the pitch black of the night. You can see nothing even if you put your hand in front of you, you won't see anything, which means a big so confusing.
The obvious becomes so hard to see even the clutter that's in our mind in our hearts is confusing a lot of people understand. Adding to this, the flood that we're getting from our cell phones and smart, you know,
technology and so on is not giving people a chance to breathe is not giving people the chance to breathe out of what they're receiving. And unfortunately, what makes news is not the good stuff. Unfortunately, it's the negative things, the controversial aspects, entertainment, and usually the worse it is, the more appealing to people unfortunately these days, so the flood of fit and are coming our way and seems that people lost control over these things. Even if you have a smartphone in your in your pocket, you can just stop the fitna from coming to you sometimes people just stop pursuing it without even knowing that. in Hades Abdullah Hammer of Nassau de la Renata Rasulullah
sallallahu Sallam said kafer become busy man. He says Allah Salah What are you going to do when the time comes? When a time comes? You should end yet t your balloon NASA fee or Vera this time is going to come and will shake people which means is going to is going to scrutinize the people are horrible, horrible ages What do you have a strainer and you start kind of stirring the flour
is kind of like you cleaning everything says you horrible, nasty, horrible they will be shaken severely. And then he said so Allah salam wa Salatu minimus what stays on the top has element and mass which means a group of people not even the best. Which means after shaking everything This is our this is not going to be the best probably who Salah de minimus Carlos de la la Salaam Kamara who Duma natyam,
which means they don't keep their words. They're not trustworthy.
Those who say that you probably gonna maybe connect with them, or at least in fine trust with them. They're not the best. Allah sallallahu taala for and as a result, they will among themselves, they will differ and disagree. And then the Prophet xlsm says, we can do haka, and they become like this.
And with his hand sallallahu wasallam puts his fingers together like this, meaning they're going to be constant, you know, disagreements and fighting and struggle, and so on. And look what happened. This world is pretty much what we have in here. A Sahaba de la donham. They were terrified.
Kalia rasulillah matter Marina and NASA, what would you ask us to do them?
And that's what we need to learn from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how can we find safety in terms of trials and ordeals? Carlos sallallahu wasallam de una de matar. The first thing he said, Take what you already know. Which means the proper knowledge and when explained that to shallow dialogue on what are their what are their own, imagine Kieran and you stay away from what you do recognize, like innovations and bid on whatever people they bring to you as matters of faith and Dean Carlota wiluna Allah ha Sati Can You mind your own self and business in many, many things, meaning just keep keep yourself under check all the time. Don't lose control over yourself and your family? What are
the Rona omraam may come and you leave the role of the mom don't follow the mom basically for what they do. Today, our culture, what they call a trends, who create the trend anyway. The mom, whether it's visual, or virtual, or local, wherever there is, many people they follow in their life, the role of the mob, and the trend that is out there. And then they say you're the odd one.
Because everybody's following that which is considered trending these days, even if it was wrong. In this head, it will learn few things about how we can find safety in terms of all these entries. Number one, the first thing you do as a believer and I want you to pay attention to decision the first thing that you do and yet Hotel in San Obi Mayor that you hold on to what you recognize what you know, but what is it that we recognize and we know because people have different resources I follow this path this civil of this scholar on this island. What is the professor Allison was talking about over here? He's talking about the source the first source and what is it the Quran and
the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. In the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam mentioned Dr. Fukuyama and I left for you two things. He said listen to the Luma demisexual Nando de la abuddin mathema septum Bhima that you will never go astray as long as you hold on to them. He said sallallahu wasallam Kitab Allah was in my book, the book of Allah azza wa jal, and my sooner The sooner the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is what we recognize. If people bring anything we need to go back again to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet salaallah Salah when we follow the opinions of people, whoever they are, now becomes the problem we get divided because who
said that this imams or that alum or that scholar or
This speaker you know is more on the hochanda right? Unless we have and support that evidence that opinion with the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam so we go by the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the second thing, the willen Kala Salalah Selim, what are the Runa Mattoon Kiran and you leave what you don't recognize? What does that exactly mean? That means we leave what we recognize of what of the Phaeton and the Buddha The shubho had in anything that you don't know it's from the foreigner sooner and you're doubtful about stay away from it. You see the prophets Allah sent him he was he said, Carla, um, as a matter of fact,
and the one seven semaan he asked the prophets Allah San Carlos de la
Sol to burn and unbearable Islam. Tell me about what is considered there, which is mean the the good. And what is a lithium? How do I recognize between what is good and what is not? A lithium with me is sin. For Carlos Salalah. Salim Albert has not followed the best of all good deeds as good manners. That's what matters. today. Having good manners is not a quality people appreciate very much. It's the opposite. You know, if you're the one who's the smartest, meaning you, you deceive, you get away with things and you break the rule. And that's how you consider the no smart person not having good manners and a flag no matter what doesn't matter. It doesn't fluctuate. So he says
Alberto hurstville Hello, the true bear is no personal follow, which means good manners. And then he said well isn't as for the sin mahak if you saw that
there was scratches in your on your heart. When you when you do something and you feel guilty about it. No matter how much you try to justify it for yourself, you still feel that you've done something wrong. You might not be sure. But you feel something is wrong with it. I don't feel comfortable with that. worker is Tanya Pollyannas, and you don't like people to to see that. Like something keeps scratching you from the inside, bothering you. And you hate for people to see that no matter what that is. That becomes like a personal filter for you. Even if you don't have a shape or almaraz color to contact in that moment in time. You need to know should I do it or not? Should I say it or
not? check what's in your heart and see how would you feel about it? And then afterwards, you could go and ask to see if what you've done was right, or was wrong. The second the third thing that the Hadith is requiring from us, that we seek that knowledge from the other man those who know if I would like to know what I supposed to be holding on to from the plan sooner and stay from that which is considered doubtful, then where do I get that knowledge from? There is no doubt the knowledge comes from those whom Allah Subhana blessed with knowledge. And how do you know the Allahu wa Palazzolo he sallallahu wasallam Allah hi Radha was Shara la Georgia. I'll hire either, which means
doing good. Establishing good habits.
You need to continue doing that which is good until it becomes natural to you. That's what it means. Once it becomes natural, you know that you've established a good habit of hand a lot of blood I mean, was Sharla Georgia as for evil, he just always controversial. Always, always if you're always bad about it. Then he said Salalah Salah when you're in the lobby hi Ron.
remember Allah subhana wa there was good for giving them the understanding of this Deen the good understanding of the universe, Allah subhanho wa Taala
what else the prophet SAW some studying that's in the first Hadith
that we leave
that you know, you just leave the role of the mom? And what does that exactly mean? today as I said, you know, most people they follow what is considered trendy. And even if you try to bring back again, some of the true legacy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the core and the teachings of the Quran people will label you to be you know, you're out of your time. This is not what people need today. This is not this is not that it's not about this agenda. It's about what is right and what is wrong within the context of what is considered Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just because people they say it's okay, just because the general body
they're the one this and that doesn't mean it's right. Unless it's supported by the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, otherwise panela I mean, come to the majority, then are always on the right path. Not always on the right, but even the last panel that I mentioned that to us, that were more accurate, NASA will have harassed me. No, no, no, no, no. Most people even if you try, there'll be believers. In the statement of Allah, Allah terranova he said Kala NASA last when it comes to people, the three categories alleman or abahani this item that is Rabbani What does it mean? An animal Rabbani mm
bass are they allowed and he said, it's the one
He's the one who teaches people several kubla kebari the one who teaches people the basics before the major stuff. So, we focus also on teaching people that which is essential. Today, learning the essentials are gone. Well as you might have seen some municipalities very embarrassed in some time to say that some public speakers, people who already out there in public teaching and telling people stuff and so on, and I saw them failing in observing some of the basic teachings of like the etiquette of eating for example, according to the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam or even sometimes, you know, being having the decency of of certain etiquettes basic etiquette. It is so
embarrassing. So Mr. Daniels is an alum have been a scholar who has Rabbani which means fears Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches people that which is right and may keep themselves from that which is wrong. Call one Masha Allah, Allah sabirah Naja, the second category of the people musallam student new knowledge or a learner and we're supposed to be all learners as Muslims as believers. Our Deen is based on knowledge Mr. lumm and Allah Allah Allah Allah you have the knowledge that there is no god but one so your entire life's supposed to be increasing in knowledge and knowing more about our lives to bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala Paulo Mata Allah Allah Sabina Naja a learner on
the path of safety. What does it mean? I'm learning to stay safe. I'm looking for safety on this past Allah azza wa jal all what I'm doing is trying to survive in this world. And by the way, our duty as Muslims is not to quit. Because people say it's a shift that's too much. It's great fit an alarm, Stan, I should quit and just keep in mind that myself, you know what, you can do that if you want. That's up to you. But a true believer never quits. Instead, you persevere.
you strive you struggle. You try to be the torch for people when they don't see through, you'll be the one who carries a shot of the banner for them so they can find safety when the law has chosen. That is my duty. And in this Hadith, the Prophet salla Samson says and the third category, the third category, Warhammer genre, and then you have the mob.
And he says ra which means basically they just like you know, ignorant people, they just know nothing. Kala
Kulina, they're followers of every loud mouth, the loudest they go after.
It's not about the most knowledgeable.
It's not about the most most authentic No, the louder. It doesn't matter what kind of you know, preaching they give what kind of call they make, the louder people they follow them, call me Luna macelleria. They kind of sway with everyone. Or you could say trend. The trend takes them right they go. It takes them live, they go with it. They don't stay steadfast to karma. When the man asked the prophet SAW some color Rasul Allah polyfill, Islamic Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, tell me something about Islam, and you do not need to ask no one after you for Carlos sallallahu Sallam coolamon to Billa masakan. He said, You say I believe and then remain steadfast. Which means you say I believe
and then prove it. act upon it. work so hard to remain standing up so that you go you walk, you walk with pride, believing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is one and only and for the example of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I live in a town of continued speaking about that crowd or the mob or the trends. This is called a lemon study. It will be noodle and they don't they haven't seen the light of knowledge. While I'm real Joe Lalo Kirkland a thief, and they're not holding tight to clean water, which means strong strong corner is basically the stone foundation of knowledge. Which is why when fitten happens Unfortunately, the majority of the mob just just fall.
They fall for it, and they lose their faith and they just kind of like that they feel that they've been betrayed and this and that. Why? because they'd be just following the loudest mouth not necessarily the true teachings of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So how can I hold on to this number five?
At the cellar, herbal Emmanuel taqwa that you always equip yourself with faith, strong taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Fear Allah azza wa jal and believe in the prophets of Allah, Salem's example and sooner so to lower Samadhi in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, you already know I'm going to talk Allah or you who believe you if you realize the origin, what amino be Rasulullah and believe in his messenger. So handle webinar Shoreham Allah and tafsir. He says about the meaning of this. He says Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, you alladhina me all you who believe takala utilizada but then he says, Well, I'm in obiora Sutra, and then have faith believe in his
messenger. I mean, isn't this implied already when Allah says, all you who believe all you who believe it Is that sufficient that they're supposed to believe in the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he says the meaning of
This, the time will come. Will people they say that they believe, but they won't follow the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
sounds familiar in our time. Unfortunately,
today many, many people they call themselves intellectual. They say, Hey, we only follow the Quran. That's it. As for the profit center for the Summa, well, that's another thing that's on an intellectual level. They call it intellectual, other people among the believers themselves, they believe in Allah azza wa jal, no doubt about it. But they follow other than the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as a main guide, no matter how much you try, they almost follow opinions of people. Not the example of the profits that a lot of money. Lots of hanada says after that, follow up completely Nima rometty. He will provide for you he will grant you to portions of His mercy subhanho wa Taala.
And then not just that, if you do that, what we need in terms of fitness what is light of guidance as a professor in the fit and becomes dark. So we need the light he says subhana wa Taala why I let him know random shoe Navy. And he will give you light by which you could see and you walk means you walk through the darkness of the feet and under charge of this time. Color well for local malo a photo for Him and He will forgive you in the process will make mistakes.
We're not going to be probably 100% true to this principle we fall.
We just kind of like fall behind a little bit. We fall short on achieving what we're supposed to do. We're human beings after all. I believe in Allah zojila believe the son of the Prophet xlsm is the best to follow. But I'm a human being. I make mistakes in the process, but I need to continue trying and continue trying and Allah subhanaw taala grant me must be wrong. He will forgive as long as you continue trying. Lots of holidays off forgiving. Subhan Allah to Allah Allahu Allah for Rahim Allah azza wa jal is a photo of Rahim, his forgiving is merciful subhanho wa Taala. The last point here I want to mention to you, a Tokuda, Allah, I will try. But what guarantees that I'm gonna arrive to
safety, there is no guarantee.
There is absolutely no guarantee. Because you're not responsible for the result. You're responsible do your part. That's why you need to have tawakkol after you're doing your part, after doing your part, you need to put your trust where it belongs. Allah Subhana Allah azza wa jal he put your trust in the people, they will deceive you. Probably they will disappoint you. But you put your trust in Allah subhana wa tada no matter what happens, good or bad. You know, it's for a reason. Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah Allah, for Allah hospital, whoever puts their trust in Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanaw taala has to allow will be sufficient for them. Once again, those who truly believe
they know whatever good happens because of the reason for it. And those who see that things not going their way. Only Allah knows how things are work. That's the that's the miracle and the mystery of the quarter of Allah azza wa jal, shallot, vanilla on Wednesday after certain mother have been the nozzle, I'm going to be talking about cutter specially in time when many many people have problem with that. Understanding it How can I stay? You know faithful to my Deen my Eman in times when I see around me things that will just challenge everything I know about my faith. How can I have that trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and a quarter of Allah so that's a very important issue
here that we live in Panama as once again, when it comes to this time, time of trials, terms of fitten as people come closer Subhana Allah to the signs of day of judgment as you approach faster and faster, things get difficult
and few people will survive it. But those who persevere and become persistent and follow that example, the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Stay informed. seek knowledge, stay with the knowledgeable people. Always strengthen yourself with a man and taqwa and always put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala only then you'll be able to survive now lots of homemakers among the notable al amin colocado had our start for Allah Allah de Morocco. What is our Muslim manifesto for Oh
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam Avada cannabinol Mohammed. While earlier he was happy to celebrate the Sleeman kathira
mighty brothers and sisters. So how long would come to the level of the severity of the sweetener and trials? It's really it's not constant old time It depends. Even more audio louder no more da da da da da da da da da da da in his time. He was worried about these trials. So he asked, and the people around him. Hello, are you come Samia, how do you think maybe sallallahu alayhi wasallam Phil Fitton Rama
He asked the people around him but Who among you have heard the process of speaking about these trials and ordeals? So the people they said, Are you talking about fitness? Roger, the female?
Are you saying that you know, the trials and the fitness that we get because of our family and dealing with our children and Manuel's and risk? It goes, No, no, no, no, that's not the one I'm talking about how they fit into coffee, aloha Salatu was salam o Sadako. These trials, you know, you can find explanation for it. If you pray, if you give charity and you fast, it will help you, you know, pass. It's easy. So I'm talking about fit. And these are the fit a little Mooji module
that will be so scared of like the surge of the ocean. That's what I'm talking about. So today, if you told him I heard the professor, I'm speaking about it. And he asked him about this. He said, I asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about all hydro, Sharon says people used to ask the Messenger of Allah about good. I used to ask about evil, Mahabharata and you drink honey, because I was worried that I will do it without me noticing that that's what he was asking about. And that is exactly what people need to pay attention to today. Many people they have this issue whenever something is controversial, they take the easy out by doing it because it's not hard.
But that's not how things go. Just because it's okay doesn't mean you should you to make sure that it's okay. But yes, it's right at the same time. You make sure that you don't lose your principle of steadfastness Alessia Carmela de la barakaatuh Allah. Yes, I've had a lot of galantamine in our Deen we do have Rojas. We have concessions. We have hamdulillah easy ways of doing things. There is no doubt about but don't justify, you know, the sin for herself. Under this principle, you need to ask knowledgeable people, you need to know is it okay for me to do that? Is that okay? To do this this way or that way. This is how we survive, because we need to ask those who don't have the knowledge
so we can survive with vanilla, terracotta. And finally, one last thing I would like to give each and every one of you and myself first as well, to hold on to as a principal inshallah, that as long as we maintain regularly. Hopefully we'll find safety in the law in terms of trials and that is, a list of farro was Sala
that we seek forgiveness constantly from Allah azza wa jal and we hold on to the principle of patience through Salah, Salah, you see when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when a prophet Yunus la Salaam wasn't in the in the belly of the whale, Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about him that one thing he that saved him one thing that saved him specifically that he never stopped seeking forgiveness from Allah Xhosa what are known as the new newness when he was upset and he left his people won for the Napa Valley. So he thought you know, he lost his living color Fernanda Lumet, and he lost pinata tested him and tried him in the belly of the whale. And he starts calling in the
darkness of the of the oceans
Illa Illa Allah Subhana Allah in the conterminous Solomon, who seek refuge with Allah azza wa jal, the one and only Subhana Allah to Allah subhana wa I praise you in Newcomb terminal.

You seek Allah's forgiveness and preventing the loss of Hannah with another The other thing is a Salam. Salam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one night he woke up so scared in the house of Allah modele de la Atlanta for color for color elegido soy he gotta wake them up. All these delayed his wife's wake them up to pray. And he told him Salawat de la ceremonia de la Sol gel has Angela Kula she, he brought things down right now. No Hassan. And he also brought some of these fitternity trials. And he asked them to wake up and pray at night. If
anyone would like to find safety in this difficult time. You need to start learning to wake up at night to pray. I know we stay up a lot at night but not for the right reason. Whether we're just socializing or just killing time on the internet or anything like this. So you've been watching stuff, but you need to learn to wake up. So you pray to rock at least on regular basis. Hopefully you will find that peace and tranquility in your heart in your mind your alignment along molybdenum and Phantom.
