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

One minute of fitna of desire and Shahada. How many of you would think that it will have people like that?

00:00:06--> 00:00:08

They're willing to face an entire army.

00:00:09--> 00:00:20

But they cannot stand alone against the fitness of desires and shower. It's easier to fall into the shadow than facing an entire army through knowledge,

00:00:21--> 00:01:04

isn't it? People don't say, I'll go for it. I'll fight an entire gang. But you leave them alone, locked in one room, and they have access to something haram fit no shadow, desire that will cause him to commit someday they will perhaps we'll never think that they will do it. But the day the motivation is done, it's strong. It is very stronger. And I know there are so many people that would say, Well, I am willing to force to face any kind of challenge. And if it now, but I just cannot face that particular fitna. And to be specific when it comes to men and women is one of the greatest fitten one of the greatest return for men and women to survive in a culture like ours today that

00:01:04--> 00:01:47

promotes all kinds of moralities and lack of love and manners and the free mixing and so forth. It's all about worshipping, of worshiping desires of worshiping lust. And there are so many people who fall for this fitna, even among those who would consider some of the most righteous, it's natural. There is a fitna that Allah subhanho wa Taala desire Allah has instilled in our hearts, a loss of power, put this in our heart for a reason. And that reason is for the halal reason. So it's not about thinking about it as much what is the action that you take to make it right or wrong? This is one of the qualities the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he mentioned in the

00:01:47--> 00:02:00

Hadith. The mission the height of the seven people who will be under the shade of man, when there'll be no shade, but his panel with Allah Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Rajan, the attuma, that amongst women was a man.

00:02:02--> 00:02:46

A man he said, sallAllahu wasallam, a man, that hombre he was called by a woman, that two months have been with a man, she possesses specific qualities. She has a monster, which means a position status was a man and beauty. She's not just have that status over him. She also have that beauty for color in the kafala. His response to her call, he would say in the call for law, I feel Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now what I want you to think of, I want you to think of this. I want you to visualize and imagine the magnitude of this fitna, and how easy it is for a person to fall into this fitna. Why do you think Allah subhanho wa Taala would give a reward of alpha chastity to be agenda

00:02:46--> 00:03:29

as it has recently been sad for the Allahu Allahu Allah Rasulullah sallallahu samsudin hydrocele Bukhari, Casa de la la wa sallam managment de manera de muy bien en la la la la hora de manera hojin whoever guarantees for me to protect that which is between his legs which means is our means not commit the Haram and that who also protects that which is between his two Jaws, that's your tongue. When you say when you talk them into the whole gender, I guarantee agenda for them. No wonder because it's indeed something that's very, very difficult to maintain. And for those who maintain it Allah subhana wa does writing for them Jen as a reward and even before that a shade when there will

00:03:29--> 00:03:43

be no shade but his subhanho wa Taala I want you to visualize the magnitude of this number one the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that woman that lady when approached this man said that woman said she has specific status which means authority and power

00:03:44--> 00:04:28

was a man also she's beautiful and somehow Allah a woman of that status every man would desire to go basically and maybe look for in a hurry I would say for the Muslims in sha Allah tala burn environment like us, like ours is very open. Any man would go and try to pursue this woman tried to please her just to have a look from her. Look at the so called celebrities. Every young man, he goes to their Facebook pages and the sub fantasizing about you and having a look having a, let's say, a moment with hurdle or even have a phone call or responding to this post if you post anything on their website. Just having that everybody's trying to do this. So it's you're trying right now.

00:04:28--> 00:04:33

However Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says, she is calling them

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

so the motivation is there already because you would pursue that for sure. But now the Prophet says she is telling you

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

she's the one who's initiating that, that makes it even harder to stay away from and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says that amounts of energy Man, these are two perfect are these two perfect basically qualities. And these are the best qualities to show you how how great the fitness one

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

Have them is enough for the person to fall for it. One of them a woman with power,

00:05:06--> 00:05:18

she can destroy your life, she can ruin your job, she can ruin your family, you know, life and science, she can do whatever she wants, people or men would be intimidated by that, to try to avoid it. Okay, well, please.

00:05:19--> 00:05:31

And it could be just because she's beautiful, even if she didn't have any status, but she's so beautiful that many men will again will fall for that. And then the prophets of Allah says, Allah subhanaw, taala sulamani

00:05:32--> 00:06:07

are actually the third qualities that we mentioned here that shows how great the fitness is that the man the man is eventually would always know. And this is something somehow natural inclines towards fulfill that desire, you know, but imagine when then our motivation is there, but the woman initiating that regardless of her status, or beauty, so that makes it also now very actually an intensified on them. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he said that the monster when he said monster, which means she has a specific power and status, means she can do whatever she wants to do, and no one will even talk to her right? Which means you will be protected.

00:06:08--> 00:06:51

If you accept, you will be protected, because she has the power of protecting you as well. And eventually, you actually not even protected them. Which brings it even more harder on the parent and the person that you're not put you're vulnerable If you say no, because a woman of her status, you say no to her, you hurt her ego all along. So what happens to you imagine what happened to Savannah, his salon? If he doesn't respond to me? What I'm gonna do to him? What did she say she will do to him? Ladies, Gentlemen, he is going to face punishment, or be thrown to jail. I don't care what she cared. But at this, you're just trying to show her power and that position. So for all of this, all

00:06:51--> 00:07:16

of this, the Prophet xlsm says any man who was put on situation like this will definitely if they say no, in the law, I feel Allah subhanho wa Taala. Definitely, they deserve that shade when there'll be no shade, but his subhanho wa Taala? Not so some of the systems myself, Okay, what about us? How could this apply to us? The elephant in the room, they say that this head is also applied to a woman,

00:07:18--> 00:07:23

a woman who's been attracted by a guy, a guy also has an authority over her.

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

Or He's very handsome.

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

And she's in a situation that is easy for her to say yes.

00:07:32--> 00:08:09

But she says in niehoff, Allah and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned, he mentioned the story of the three men who entered that cave. And then the rock came down closing the cave on them. And then they said, Listen, nothing's gonna help you here. Nothing's gonna help you out. Unless you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala by one of your good deeds, you have to mention something that you've done for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, and only for the sake of Allah zildjian. So each one of them gave his own, you know, case, and this young man, this this one, this one man. He says, well, in my case, there was one day, I had a cousin who said, I loved her so much.

00:08:09--> 00:08:52

And I tried everything. He was a player at that time. He wanted just just to satisfy himself with her without having a cutting and responsibilities. And he said, always tried and she always rejected. She always mentioned her chastity. Until one day, she ran through some financial troubles that she got to the point that she went to her cousin. She goes, listen, I'm in a situation right now. Can I take some money Can I borrow? So can you help me out? He goes out well, in one condition that should allow him of course to commit the hydrometer she would say no. And then again, again until she got to the point where there was no escape. She said okay, fine. And now he said I was

00:08:52--> 00:09:08

there with her alone, when he was able to commit what he has been designing all this time. In the last second. She still has she had the beautiful on her heart but she was doing it out of what she thought would be necessity malice pinata, Allah,

00:09:09--> 00:09:20

forgive her. And also forgive and Allah protect everyone for going through this. Then to this point, she said to him, she just said that final like final reminder, call it yada

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

yada

00:09:23--> 00:09:43

which we just like saying to him, Fear Allah. Don't do this unless you have the right to do it. Which means you know my husband, don't just don't do it unless you have the right to do that. He said he was shaken by those words. And he just immediately just like a wake up call for him. And he went off and he gave her the money. Instead just go

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

it says Allah, I asked if I have done that for your own sake, for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada Jana mana Fie. Make it easy on us and relieve us from the stress and from this difficulty. So a lot of the rock from the from the face of that cave and the old wine went out walking the point

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

Is that even women sometimes would run some of these situations and difficult situations. So power law, if you look into the Muslim on my sofa, it's not it's not

00:10:09--> 00:10:39

an uncommon thing these days. Look at the situation in Syria. Look at the situation in other Muslim countries not doesn't have to be even Muslim countries, or even non Muslim countries, many women are forced into the streets, and we're getting to this point. But you say in law, I feel Allah subhanho wa Taala suppiler. For when it comes to comparing between the intensity of the situation between the man and woman will lie for the woman, it's even harder sometimes on the men. Why is that? Because men can do it and get away with it.

00:10:40--> 00:10:48

But if a woman does it, she will carry some consequences. She might get pregnant, the man is not going to get pregnant.

00:10:50--> 00:11:07

And the woman perhaps it's easier for her to realize people that are that she had that before Nan versus men who can deny it. So it's harder on them. So for them to maintain chastity in a culture like this will lie It's much greater. It's much much greater than men, who would claim this is a very difficult thing for them.

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

When it comes

00:11:10--> 00:11:47

to when it comes to the description of Prophet mentioned this Hadith, that must have been a man for color in the kafala. She has a status, she has power, she has beauty. And the money says in the kafala we learned this from the story of use of Allah is Salaam, I don't want to go through the entire story of use of you all know that. But one point about the story of use of how was he able to protect himself? How was he able to protect himself from this situation? Here are the things that we can learn from the story of use of Allah His salon? I mean, of course, when it comes to use of this, remember what happened exactly, you know, there was there were seduction. She was seducing him, she

00:11:47--> 00:12:24

prepared everything for him. So the situation was very protected. And if you think about the story of use of Allah Islam, I don't expect that this happened overnight. Like all of a sudden, she woke up, she found himself, you know, in love with him. And she said, let's do it. No, perhaps you start realizing that for so long, and she was planning for it and trying and trying and usable. He was completely oblivious to that until she put him in that particular situation that we all know, as was described in the Quran. And it wasn't just that even when he thought he was out of it, there was only one woman. But then when the woman starts talking about that lady, what does she do? She said,

00:12:24--> 00:12:52

Okay, I don't want to be alone in this thing. She calls them and she brought the elite, the gas in women's in the community, and they all came in and for the dinner. And when she saw when she when they all saw her, perhaps they were still gossiping her in her own house. How dare she does that she acts like nothing happened when she's trying to seduce her own slave and so on. Eventually, she prepared us live in the best form when he came out. And when they also use a valet salon, they cut their hands.

00:12:54--> 00:13:18

And then the in the middle of that story, the prophet Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that there's only one woman then suddenly is all these women going after is about a certain color. No habla madonnina yada, yada go to jail. Better than fulfilling what they're asking me to do. So wasn't just only one. So for those brothers, who keep saying Yeah, chef for us, it's everywhere. We're like you said

00:13:20--> 00:14:01

it was there around him surrounding him. And they had all the right to destroy his life. I mean, your Zoo are they gonna kill you if you don't do it? Use it was threatened by that to that level. So all this fitna, for you is optional. But for use of Allah His salon, it was forced on him that he almost lost his life or it was stolen. Still, he said in the kafala. How did you protect himself? Number one, added to some of the later barcode Allah that He sold shelter with allies origin Yusuf Alayhi Salaam. He sought protection and shelter would Allah subhanahu wa Tada. When the woman she told him to come, what did he say to her? calama Allah.

00:14:03--> 00:14:44

Allah, I seek refuge with Allah. The first thing you do, you say RO Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Allah I seek refuge with Allah azzawajal. But when you say it has to come out from the heart, not just from the tongue. It's not like having another look and say, for Allah. Allah Mashallah, Jim. It doesn't work like this as your ma when you seek refuge with Allah Subhan Allah, it has to come from the heart. We're human beings, we get weaker, I understand that. So if you do it, you still need to settle for laughter. But try to stand firm whenever you face this struggle, and this fitness so the first thing is refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala and Subhanallah the woman whom she

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

tried to do some all this time, she realized and she saw that unusable a salon even she described what he did. God wah wah to unless he first doesn't, you know, I try. I admit right now, Atlanta. Hahaha Carlos. It's over right now. And our Atlanta

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

Did it wasn't me who started this? And then she said about him, he said, Listen, I tried, but I have to tell you the truth. First awesome. This man, I don't know how he does it. Basically, he had a very strong, very strong resolve for stars and he was holding on to something so strong. That's Yusuf Ali Salaam. How many of us who are holding on to this rope of Allah subhanho wa Taala toss the moon, we have the legend man, you hold on to the rope of Allah xuejun so the first thing you look for is shelter with Allah subhanho wa Taala number two. Number two,

00:15:35--> 00:16:16

you give priority to pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala than pleasing your own desires and yourself. And where do we get that from? You know when you serve Allah Salam he mentioned to her Listen, palma de la novia cinemas. Why, and what did he say he know livelihood by the moon. So this I'm telling you, transgressors don't get success in this life. So he was telling her Listen, I'd rather please Allah subhanho wa Taala, than please myself and then become among those ignorant and those transgressors, who will never be successful on their lives. Look at yourself, if you transgress, that means you're not among the successful. You lost one battle. And then a second battle, a third

00:16:16--> 00:17:04

battle, fourth battle, every time you have this fitna coming your way, it's a battle with the shaitan. And we just you know, transgress and move on with it, you lost the entire war, against your desire to Shahada and a[???]a when you Stephanie salami says, Carla in her life, the holy moon, the transgressors can never win, can never win this war against the shaitaan. So you always remind yourself to please Allah subhanho wa Taala over your desires, number three, number three, for use of Allah His solemn, he rather he rather be imprisoned and in jail than doing this work, which means, which means that you choose to to kind of disconnect yourself from this kind of environment

00:17:04--> 00:17:21

altogether. That's better than putting yourself out there and expose yourself for the fitna. So for those who cannot stand, you know, watching the Haram thing on the internet, yeah, just cut the internet from your house, Chef. But that's not reasonable kids, this and that, and so on. Okay, put filters,

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

parental control, whatever you can do you guys, smart people who will live in the hub of

00:17:28--> 00:18:07

IT technology in this area, you can find ways, but you have to disconnect yourself from this. You have to do that. And that's what was asked about Europe, I need to disconnect myself with this whole fitna. You don't want to go to jail. So Hannah law, one user was asking a lot to take him to jail even, you know, he didn't think how long he's gonna be there, right? He didn't know it was gonna be one day, two days, an hour, two hours a year or two, he had no idea how long he's gonna be staying there. And to show you that it wasn't easy on use of Elisa Lam, either, it wasn't even easy. Some of you might say, well, hamdulillah he was happy and in prison. You know, it was happy in prison. If he

00:18:07--> 00:18:20

was really happy in prison. When this man who saw interpretation of dream from him, he told him, listen, you're gonna die, and you're going to be freed. And then he told the one was going to be free. He said, Listen,

00:18:21--> 00:18:25

do me a favor, when you go and you meet the king. Talk to him about me.

00:18:26--> 00:18:56

He told him, talk to him, talk to him about me. What does that mean? It means I'm here for no reason that's not fair. And it to be out, will lie. When I ever think about this word. And this part of the story I sometimes will lie. It's difficult to imagine the emotions and the feelings Yusuf Alayhi Salam had to go through for perhaps the next few months, not even years. Every time he hears the door open or closed footsteps of gods or not, or even the sound of keys as they come guess what comes into his mind.

00:18:57--> 00:19:22

It's me for me right now. That's what that's the one that's so because I told him perhaps you talk to him. He lived for uncertainty for so long. But Allah subhana wa tada says, beloved decision, Buddha sin, He had to stay there for a few years, you know, even if it requires me to stay there for first few years away from the internet, even if you don't have to have TV in your house forever. If this is how you protect yourself and your family, there will be

00:19:24--> 00:19:32

you put the priority here that you disconnect yourself from the source of fitna so that you can enjoy that shoot of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now next,

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

a tofield Allah subhanho wa Taala. A tofield guidance comes from Allah azza wa jal. This guidance and this help assistance come from Allah azza wa jal, however, you need to take the step the first step, because when Yusuf Alayhi Salam was reminded with this lady and what she wanted from him, What did he tell her first column Allah as he prefers utilizada we know that so he reminded herself for the last panel with us

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

However the circumstances was so like perfect to commit that Zina or haram without any consequences was almost perfect for him for him to do that. So Adam at some point, according to the

00:20:13--> 00:20:27

famous mofa, sitting at some point, while after the hammer Bahama, he almost kind of inclined almost, but he was reminded, and then he immediately he ran away.

00:20:28--> 00:20:43

The moment you remember, the merely, he did not hesitate. It's not like you know, standing and putting your finger above you know, the Enter key and just keep guessing right now, enter or not enter or not know, he ran away to the door.

00:20:45--> 00:20:59

Again, it's not about typing or not, shall I type or not? Should I keep it on or turn it off and so on? He didn't ask himself either twice, or three times, or 10 times. The moment he remembered he ran away? Do you run away when you remember? Or do you try to take a second chance?

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

What do you do? Use a valet salami. Even when he was running away, that woman, the woman of power, she went back after him. And you know what, if you even try to imagine? Imagine the scene. How do you think she was running after her?

00:21:18--> 00:21:52

How do you think she was running after him? smiling, happy walking? or How would she be doing? I would imagine her going after him so furious and angry. Like how dare you? That's even she ripped his shirt. off his back, she erupted. Why? Because she was so angry. so upset, and shut up that shirt, come back here I'm telling you. So he was trying his best to flee and there was no easy out. But still he tried. He did his farm. And then rescue came for murder Gemma

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

from our last panel.

00:21:56--> 00:22:36

All of a sudden the unexpected happen. And why was that? Her husband was behind the door. Because what's going on there. And when she opens the door, of course she's in trouble. She cried. He was attacking me his This is that and so on and use it at a salon. He couldn't take it anymore. He goes, That's not true. She started she was going after me. And Allah again that will feel from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah brought his innocence by saying don't check them. Let's see, check that that dress that you're talking about him his shirt. And when they found the shirt was looked from behind Allah, Allah gave him protection, and also give him higher status with his own Master

00:22:37--> 00:23:16

says, You know what, I knew I can trust you. And somehow love regardless of what happened afterwards, but the point here is that if you try that will feel it would come from Allah subhanho wa Taala guidance will come from Allah azza wa jal, and hopefully rescue in shallow data would come to you from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But you need to start first, you don't wait, you need to start first inshallah. Now, one very important thing in order to protect ourselves from the fitness and culture like our that praises and promotes really any obscenity and all these scenes, and that's the kind of the level of of beauty and another, the side protecting your site and another, I know, it's

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

very hard. I understand that will lie, I'm like, a human being. Even when you don't want to watch. They force you to see things when you go on your checkout in a grocery store. I'm buying groceries. Now why do I have to see all these magazines on the way home? Why do I have to keep closing my kids eyes and just push them? You know, for us, they don't see that stuff. And even if I tried to flip all these magazines, of course, this is not acceptable. You still have some other picture on the back.

00:23:42--> 00:24:05

And alarmist. It's very hard, even in the most unconventional place for these kind of things. They force it on you. And if you go to some of these big cities, like going to New York, for example, or other places, and you want to just walk in the street shopping, some holiday have these huge posters, huge posters, high definition, it's not even pixelize It's perfect. That's

00:24:06--> 00:24:10

where you're gonna put yourself down up, even though they have posters on the floor on the ground.

00:24:12--> 00:24:16

It's hard, I understand that. But that doesn't mean not to try.

00:24:17--> 00:24:23

That doesn't mean that not you know, seeking shelter and protection with a loss of Hannah what Allah Allah has commanded us

00:24:24--> 00:24:27

to open up Sodom COVID moment in a moment of sorrow

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

that the command came to the Prophet Civil Law Center to order the oma that you need to protect your son and watch your eyes where they wonder where they go, work for the Freudian protect also you apart from committing the Haram and the Xena somehow in order to protect yourself perhaps from doing that job. If the shaitaan comes to kind of persuade you to watch that stuff. Why don't you just go to one of these websites where you will be seeing the pictures of those who are less fortunate. The picture of the orphans, the picture of the poor

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

The picture the victims of wars and so on, go and see this thing. See if you dare to go and watch something else after that. Yeah.

00:25:06--> 00:25:11

Go and check it out. Every time the shutdown remind you to do that, just go and click one of these things.

00:25:13--> 00:25:17

If you think that you don't have time for that, make a folder on your desktop haha.

00:25:20--> 00:25:50

And eventually, every time that happens, just go click it and check it out. If you have it on your phone, just also on your phone, whatever happens, just try to remind yourself that somehow I'm blessed. Why should I have to go that route. And if we ever go that route, and Allah protect us all from the cell phone, Allah subhanho wa Taala for him. That doesn't mean to be desperate. And that's it, you lose it all together, always remember to return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala one other advice on this regard is to run away from us the

00:25:51--> 00:26:28

bad companies, which are going to come to talk about this in sha Allah, Allah. And the third point in this discussion here, bad company when you have bad friends, this is you know, always recommend bad things for you. So if you're always hanging out with the wrong company, don't blame yourself of yours. Go into what they desire, what they keep talking about. So protect yourself by surrounding yourself with those who advice without which is best inshallah, who, who time. And finally, in this regard, finally, the issue of marriage. I know for many young brothers and sisters, those who are young Mashallah Allah bless you, Gemma, of getting married soon, inshallah, and the best way

00:26:28--> 00:26:31

possible in the easiest way possible and bless you with your marriages.

00:26:32--> 00:26:40

When it comes to marriage, many young men and women, they think, and they believe that marriage is the answer for their wrongdoing.

00:26:41--> 00:27:15

You know what I'm talking about a man, like a guy who's addicted to pornography, for example, a girl she always talks to here and there and wasting your time with everybody and so on. She thinks if she gets married a handler that said she's gonna dedicate her time to her husband and that such as become a family home guy, he thinks that once he gets married that hamdulillah there is no reason for going into the fitna. Well, there is much more reason for done this is your mom, because committing that sin. It's between you and the last panel with Allah, this is something you need to fix it regardless of your marital status. I'm telling you from now, experiencing you know,

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

counseling, many young brothers and sisters have been married for years.

00:27:20--> 00:28:05

It doesn't make difference. Because this matter is between you and the loss of Hannah Horton. And you have to fix it, whether you're married or not. It's a sin. It's wrong. You make sure that if you ever do that, you'll never ever be pleased with your wrongdoings. That's not a good thing. But like, you try your best to protect yourself in sha Allah. Until then, just do your best and follow that the medicine of Yusuf alayhi salam. Now the second point that I would like to mention in this hadith is inadmissible asylum, origin, which brings us to this point afterwards, origin that Allah hollien for Father tyna a man and because of a woman, that Corolla hollien that it is, remember Allah

00:28:05--> 00:28:42

subhanho wa Taala and solitude alone for follow Dinah and there is as long with tears, the Hadith says photodynamic means the eyes flowing which is a beautiful, beautiful gesture. That doesn't mean they cry and they weep. No, just simply as you sit down there, watching the sunset, and you see the beauty of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the mixed colors, the beautiful colors of the sunset, for example, and the clouds and and all of this, and then suddenly, you remember how great the one who made this subhanho wa Taala remember when you just to get to that moment, and suddenly you feel your eyes are tuning

00:28:43--> 00:29:23

they also filled up with us right now they don't have to slow on your on your cheeks. Just your eyes tearing up right now. That gorilla hollien for for Dinah remember that moment when you wake up at night, and no one is watching you. And you start reading Quran you've been reading the surah for many many years. But all of a sudden you stopped at one particular is it just like a wake up call for you again just like Pamela just like as if I'm reading it for the first time in my life. And then suddenly you start now feeling the tears coming coming out. Maybe you went instead of going to something wrong. On the internet, you went to something good. You went to one of these YouTube clips

00:29:23--> 00:30:00

and you went to watch and listen to one alum, one scholar and a beautiful reminder about a day of judgment about the meaning the meaning of life about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam you hearing about him and somehow you your heart starts melting and starts crying and no one else is watching. It just between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala This is definitely deserves to be under the shade of Allah azza wa jal won't be don't know [???], but his subhanho wa Taala Allah azza wa jal is telling us the believers I mentioned that yesterday that many people complaining that their eyes are so dry Yeah, there are so

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

Dry Why is that? You know why they're so dry? Because the heart is so hard. That's why they get dry. Allah subhanaw taala says lm here and he didn't Medina Amano and Tasha kulu boom. Lizzy Killa Manasa Mina? Isn't it about time? Is it about time Allah saying isn't about time for the believers, those who believe in Amazonian and Tasha coloboma, dhikala, that their heart should humble themselves, out of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He didn't say their minds didn't say their eyes. He said their hearts because of the heart is humble. Everything will humble and so forth. When Tasha, coloboma decorilla la they humble themselves when they hit the reminder of Allah subhanho wa Taala, womaniser

00:30:41--> 00:30:59

lemon and Huck and what was revealed to them from the truth. This I mentioned yesterday, or today, we live in a culture that kind of the intellectual culture that that puts down anyone who speaks about faith and religion and belief in Allah zosen we now start you know, crying upon hitting an A sheet,

00:31:01--> 00:31:12

hitting an A sheet, someone is singing whatever music or no music, you start crying, but when you hear the beautiful recitation of the book of Allah subhana wa tada and the Quran is just like nothing.

00:31:14--> 00:31:15

It's nothing.

00:31:16--> 00:31:51

That was a time there was a time when some of these so what are they allowed to run home, they hear one word and they fall sick. Like when we woke up on the last run. He was he was being visited for many, many days because he just overheard someone who started an eye at night. I thought it was was basically talking about him. manarola and silica salera Mangala they also feel old just because they hear this ayah. So what is Isn't it about time for the believers now to focus on their hearts, which is the thing I would like to mention here, based on this Hadith, what are the three qualities the prophet SAW the loss that I mentioned this hadith that would would lead the person to be under the

00:31:51--> 00:32:07

shade of a man he said Roger on the Corolla, when it says Roger, image, an individual doesn't have to be a man could be a woman. But the main quality number one, that Corolla that they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yo, how often? Do you remember the last panel time?

00:32:09--> 00:32:47

You know, check the conversations of today to this company. You know what, not today because you perhaps you've been listening for the past few hours right now. This is the signal handler of galantamine yesterday, the day before that. Just check the hours from the moment you woke up in the morning until you went to sleep. What's the ratio of remembering Allah azza wa jal to the rest of the day and the night? What was the ratio and the loss of Hannah Matera speaking about the believers who said what the criminal law talyllyn is it Polina Gemma dakara those who remember Allah subhanho wa Taala he says Catherine Miss in abundance, they remember a lot in abundance, but that got men and

00:32:47--> 00:33:10

women. So the first quality that you remember the last second color hollien alone. And why do we say ellonija? Man? What do we say alone? Because when you say alone, it's about poverty, man, why would people cry when they're alone? Gemma what's the motivation for them to cry when you're in public? There is a motivation to cry through this emotional look for sure.

00:33:11--> 00:33:43

Their full concentration Salah Mashallah The heart is very soft all Mashallah the good moments and so on. There is a lot of motivation and when you when in public, but when you're alone, the motivation is less and less. And that's why they say that man was to show us an announcement this last. I've never seen anything in harder on my anus, than claassen sincerity to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why is that? Because this last sincerity to Allah subhana wa COVID that means your neffs has no share in it.

00:33:44--> 00:34:24

You get nothing in return and dunya then that's got nothing gets nothing in return in this dunya. But in the Accra, you will definitely get a lot but we usually we don't think of that. So therefore they say hollien which means you alone, and that shows the strength and the power of a man when you have power to the man. Also so Kalia thing when you cry upon reciting an eye, what would make you cry? You just read an iron. But is that strong certainty and believe that these are the words of Allah azza wa jal and the last panel what Allah says lo and Xin Khurana Allah Java na ito Hashimoto sadhana Casa de la had we had we sent this this for an Allah jabber on a mountain.

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

Allah Java, and whose greater You are the mountains, the Holocaust tomato tomahto cannons. Lots of Chanukah says the creation of the heavens and the earth means the amount is greater than you get to the new creation. And the law says if we send this for an on a mountain, it will just go down crumbled into dust, or a little harsh on with a sudden cracking Attila out of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala what will kill unsanitary body mass? And these are the examples that we're now drawing for people so that they reflect on them. And unfortunate not so many people really reflect on these examples.

00:35:00--> 00:35:10

So Allah subhanaw taala when you when you remember Allah alone, that's what it means. There's a strong belief strong certainty that it is true. And that's why you cry.

00:35:12--> 00:35:41

There's no one else is watching. So you have to cry because you truly believe in that. And that's why we need to work on this. The third point from the heading and abuse of the last Adam says for fall but hyena for follow Dinah means it starts flowing with us. What do you understand from this? It's not running. That's number one. Number two, there is no yelling and weeping and screaming. You know, some people they cannot control their crying. That's fine. mulata wasn't for that. I imagine. I wonder if you do that when you're alone.

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

I wonder when you cry, you cry that much. You know when you're alone.

00:35:45--> 00:36:24

And that's one of the lucky Manisha himolla one time news. He saw a man crying in the masjid with loud voice. He goes Mashallah. I mean, this is so beautiful. But he told him, I said, you can do that in solitude. And if you could do as much when you're alone, it's very hard to do that as well. So it says for Father, I know and why because crying comes in different formats and different categories. Some people they cry out of fear of Allah subhanaw taala. And other people they cry out of mercy, human nation, other they cry, because a very tender, other they cry because out of extreme joy, extreme pain, fear of other things, many, many reasons. And some people they cry out of

00:36:24--> 00:36:25

hypocrisy.

00:36:26--> 00:36:59

This cry of hypocrisy, so many things, but the best crying is when it's done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the prophets of Allah Allah mentioned in the Hadith that the chef chef actually Mumsy mentioned that yesterday that the eyes that should choose those are the eyes will be protected from Johanna. These are the best drops that Allah Subhana Allah loves to see a drop that comes from your eyes, you know for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, those who cry for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and out of fear of Allah azza wa jal they were mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet said Allah, Allah May Allah make you one of those people, for the people

00:36:59--> 00:37:05

of knowledge, Allah subhana wa tada mentioned about them by the way, Runa lil Connie yerba Koon was

00:37:07--> 00:37:16

that they when they remember Allah subhanho wa Taala they dropped down into servitude into prostration then when they put their faces on the ground, and they cry,

00:37:17--> 00:37:28

they cry, why, out of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala those are all in the second and never been done via the masurian asahina Allah Lanka Latina anomala Urbina was

00:37:29--> 00:37:49

in Bahasa Karachi, and Allah says about them, either to Allah him, man, hora sujan Babu kiya, when the ayah the verses of a ramen are decided to them, they will drop down into sujood and they would cry out of humbleness for Allah subhanho wa Taala also an avid Solomon

00:37:50--> 00:38:31

and we have our son and Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam some people that think crying, crying for the sake of Allah and out of fear of Allah subhana wa tada sign of weakness. But here's Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he cried out of mercy. When he held his children salata lava ceremony, he cried for his own. He cried for his own man Salawat Li was allamani and was asking Allah subhana wa tada to protect that oma after him. So the watlow ceremony, and he also cried out of fear of Allah zildjian, in his Salah, in his sister and his brother, they said that when the Prophet used to cry, he will try to control his crying, there'll be like a boiling pot. You could you could hear

00:38:31--> 00:38:49

that it's boiling in his chest, but he's trying to control his, his voice on the water line was allamani. So even though pseudo lyoha, he cried, and he is the Messenger of Allah, who has since been forgiven. What about me and you? So therefore, if you would like to be one of those whose heart will be soft? Here's my advice for you. Number one,

00:38:50--> 00:38:55

try try to spend more time in seclusion then in public.

00:38:56--> 00:39:03

You know, for us in this culture, it's like impossible mission. Because even when you're alone, what do people usually do?

00:39:04--> 00:39:13

They turn on something to hear, whatever TV radio and think on the internet, they just cannot stay alone, quiet.

00:39:14--> 00:39:42

When that was the norm, before the invention of all this technology, people did go out to the desert just to reflect, just to watch and see the beauty of the creation of Allah subhana wa today. Now if you are if you are alone in the house, or in the apartment, you just try to turn the TV on the CD on anything, it just kind of you don't want to feel quiet because it's too scary for you to be quiet. Well, this is the best time to connect with a law surgeon. So my first advice is difficult for you, but try,

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

just like you like to be around people to go and hang out and Starbucks and all that stuff and so on. Just like you have to do that. I want you to do your best. Also to hang out with yourself. Meaning sit down and reflect, learn and reflect number two, an insight to the moment

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

Do you try to hear reminders? You know, Allah subhana wa Taala says,

00:40:07--> 00:40:32

well, that could find a decorative element meaning that you remind them for the remainder benefit soon. The believers, many he didn't say the wrong doors, the sinners, so the believers, so if you truly want want to reflect, you need to remind yourself over and over again, like these beautiful gatherings and shout out to Baraka, Darla. And when you go back home, yeah, and if you don't put what you learn immediately into practice,

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

then there is no benefit on it.

00:40:37--> 00:41:18

Just like nothing happened. And unfortunately this is kind of becoming like a normal attitude for many, many people. We come we sit down, we listen, and we get energized. The moment you walk out of this door, it just like kind of be like a metal detector, and just zapping all that information somehow out of your memories immediately. And people they just walk back again to normal life like nothing happened. We need to keep reminding ourselves and Allah the Prophet of Allah Allah according to Hadith, about urban Surya caradonna Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. One day the Messenger of Allah gave us a reminder, he gave us a reminder, kala mirliton salad min honeymoon,

00:41:19--> 00:41:59

he gave us a reminder because of which the eyes start steering. And the heart starts very humbling and sun basically falling apart. So the same was filled last panel, Donna, the Sahaba realized was something so unique and special about the remainder. So they said Carlos Rolla can amaura to modern for alsina. It seems that you're given like a farewell advice. And just like I said this last time, we're going to be given this advice. So please give us something leave us with some legacy that we hear from you right now. So again, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that beautiful, beautiful, beautiful reminder. The point is you need to keep reminding yourself over and over again, every now and then

00:42:00--> 00:42:23

listen to something good and shallow tala COMM And also I want you to remind yourself in what we call Maha Sabha, put yourself to the account before you are put to the account before the last panel Donna, at the end of the day. Check it out. Check the balance of your deeds. What have you done? Was it good? Bad, good enough bad, too bad? How do I can recover before I go to sleep?

00:42:24--> 00:42:39

At least I do something to finalize my there was something good, keep reminding yourself. Also. Remember, if you could not really cry easily, you know one of the techniques is try to force yourself into crying at the beginning but that's of course when you're alone, not with the people.

00:42:41--> 00:43:20

But when you're alone try to force yourself into crying so that at least you get to that point. As a professor Sam says, boku no these are the grand cry Valentine manifesto if you could not Tabak which means try to force yourself into crying when you recite the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala but please before we start, you know crying as you decide you need to read the translation but I don't understand all of it. So at least you know exactly what you're crying for. It's not like you're talking about something that's completely irrelevant and then you're crying at this when people to hear this. What's wrong with that? Try your best so that when you recite and you hear the word use

00:43:20--> 00:43:45

of a De Anza photo Rahim algin. And so we immediately remind yourself with the theme, and you definitely cry because you really truly understand the shallow dialogue these feelings in your heart when Allah azza wa jal, one of these also things that would help us in Charlotte Allah soften our hearts reading the stories of those who were before us. Why did the loss of Hannah Montana mentioned the story of usage and details for us in the Quran? As Allah says Eva, doodle Alba

00:43:46--> 00:44:26

reminder for those who have used the intellect those who are reasonable. So if you would like to keep reminding yourself, go and read the storage of never before you and shout out to Allah. The final point in this in this actually part is so habited again, finding good company who will be your executor buddies. passivity of dicker buddy over him, you know what Ramadan starts. You always get motivated and you want to start something and handle you have a nice full program for the first few days and what happens after that. It just disappears. So what happened? You just get weaker and weaker. You need a thicker buddy, someone who always reminds you, someone owes you money and that's

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

why jabril used to come to the sola sola salon knew that guru Quran in Ramadan, the prophets Allah semi has his foreign body and Ramadan. So lots of local ceremony. What is yours in this life? And that brings us to the last point shallow tell us actually the only category in the Hadith was you learned to have bathla which tamela historically to individuals who love each other for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then when they depart, they also depart for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, the Hadith says Raja than two men, but the other matters it also applies to two women

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

It also applies to a man and woman

00:45:04--> 00:45:05

do you guys understand

00:45:06--> 00:45:13

now you kind of puzzled how commission so I can just find any woman just you know, known as Mr. This is someone who's related to

00:45:14--> 00:45:15

a man and his wife.

00:45:17--> 00:45:32

You and your siblings, someone who's Muharram to you, you know I know many people Marsha when I asked them what do you guys have this Mashallah self taught the reminders from the say from my mother. My mom she's an amazing woman. She's a very spiritual woman. Just looking at her he just says of Hannah law.

00:45:33--> 00:46:10

So that eventually for them it just like motivation. And when they go when they join, they love their mom not just because their mom also for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada because they feel safe around her because then whenever she's when she reminds me reminds them of the last version. Imagine when you add to that natural love you have for your family members for your spouse, the love for the sake of Allah was his family of Tara Tara, when they meet for the sake of Allah want to depart for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and Allah subhanho wa Taala combined them in the ayah in many ads in the Koran, l Muslim or Muslim man may not miss the believing men and women, the Muslims

00:46:10--> 00:46:12

men and women. And the last part I mentioned

00:46:14--> 00:46:28

the qualities of the women, men and women together. So here's the thing, if you will come to love but I mean you and your spouse you believe that you're growing together in a man and spirituality then Add to this the love for the sake of Allah zone.

00:46:29--> 00:46:42

And if you don't need to look for someone, he to look for someone around you in the community that you can team up with. And they'll become your dicker buddy, you always remind you, when you feel weak, you call them say Listen, I don't feel good. Give me a reminder.

00:46:43--> 00:46:51

And he says, You know what, I feel the same way. How about we just come together Let's meet together and then as a dynamic Sharla we could use core antigen. We could remind one another

00:46:52--> 00:46:54

we missing these things as you know.

00:46:55--> 00:47:31

It just like they don't exist anymore. Like someone calling somebody to say Listen, I'm feeling weak over here. I want to help remind me, tell me something I just feeling that I'm gonna go down something wrong. You keep reminding one another. And when you do that, you ask Allah subhana wa Taala to keep this love between you and your brother or sister to keep it there. Why? Because these hearts are in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala He is the one who keeps you know flipping them. And today you're doing good tomorrow feeling bad. You're asked Allah subhana wa to keep your hearts in. Always on the straight path. Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he always mentioned that yamaka label

00:47:31--> 00:48:11

poo poo banana Todd. Oh Allah, the One who flips these hearts moves his heart control these hearts, submit blue banana pie that makes our hearts you know, strong and remain steadfast on that path. And the law says about the believers were unlivable in equilibrium. And it says of Hannah what Allah for Allah subhana wa polu become He is the one who brings the hearts together. So you ask Allah subhana wa Taala to find you, somebody from the community that bring your hearts together for his sake and only for the sake subhanho wa Taala Why is it difficult to do that? Because truly to have this love for someone who's completely stranger to you, only for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. It's like,

00:48:12--> 00:48:48

kind of like not not natural, natural this, there is no motivation. It's not natural thing. So there has to be something superior that brings these two hearts together, and what is better than doing it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's what the prophet says in the Hadith to have that Allah, they love each other for the sake of Allah azza wa jal when they come together for the sake of Allah, and when they leave, also for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and how can we really get that love of those people? How can we get the people to love us and love those people? You know, people they in the Arabic language, we said, in San Ysidro San, and in San Ysidro, one lesson, which

00:48:48--> 00:49:18

means that humans are captured and are captivated by goodness, when you do something good to somebody, you just capture their hearts, they feel enslaved to your kindness. So when you start you when you want to be kind, and you own your act and kind people they love that and that's why it was sort of like the licenses to hurdle to have give gifts when you give gifts to one another. You would love one another. By the way, I'm talking about gifts that comes out from the heart doesn't come from the bank account.

00:49:19--> 00:49:27

It doesn't come with your what stress with it. Like many people feel obligated that you know if they bought a gift for $50 oh man I have to do that.

00:49:28--> 00:50:00

I cannot give something you know for $10 so they just cut ties because they think you know, you know if I can afford one down gift I'll give it to you. Because well I don't care how much I was thinking about you. That's what is most important things for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala also, one of the beautiful things the prophets of Allah Salaam says in the law either have abdon nada jabril when Allah subhana wa This is actually one of the most hopeful Hadith for life for us. And in this time of stress in our lives, the prophets, Allah

00:50:00--> 00:50:13

Some says that when a law soldier loves someone, he would call upon God. Yeah gibreel in the way before Nana, I love this person, man or woman, I love this person, I want you to love him.

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

So he really loves you.

00:50:16--> 00:50:33

And because Allah just loves you, he would immediately spread the news. Debris spread the news immediately among the happiness of the heavens, all the angels, they know who's the this person His name is this and that. So they love you, for your boo and summer. All the happenings of the heavens would love you so much.

00:50:35--> 00:50:54

And then acceptance will be spread to them or for them on this earth people they would love them every time you come in. They like your company, your clothes and your proximity and so on, rather than you know, just running away from you. And then he said the other category is salatu salam ala abdon when Allah subhana wa dislikes someone he calls upon jabril I don't like this person.

00:50:55--> 00:51:13

And jabril jabril Emirati he dislikes this person and his president us to let you know, Allah doesn't like this person. Similar to da da, da, ba ba open up, then animosity hate this life will be spread and widespread among the people for this individual.

00:51:14--> 00:51:20

So if you truly want to be loved by people, you need to please Allah, not the people.

00:51:22--> 00:51:33

Most people, they spend their time and their money pleasing the people. So they could love them has good relation with them, when they're really missing the target.

00:51:34--> 00:51:46

You spend all your money in inviting people for weddings and biting people for dinners environment for all that stuff and so on, just for them to love you. And eventually when they come in to eat your food is so cheap.

00:51:48--> 00:52:24

Instead, you please Allah azza wa jal and Allah will guarantee them loving you. Even when you deal with them, you deal with I'm not saying not to deal with the people, deal with them but whatever you do, it's not just because you want to please them as much as you know I'm pleasing Allah subhana wa I'm doing it because I really sincerely genuinely believe that I love you for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And I would like to invite you I would love to have your company for the sake of Allah first and foremost, before anything else. The third one is what if you love someone for the sake of Allah azza wa jal just tell them, come to them. Citizen will love you for the sake of Allah.

00:52:24--> 00:52:28

But my advice, don't spread this you know, to everybody that you meet.

00:52:30--> 00:52:33

Not everyone you meet is it? I love you for the sake of Allah. I would say Why?

00:52:35--> 00:52:45

Because actually, when people come out and say, Well, I love it for the sake of Allah. Allah love you for the same reason. But why can you tell me why? Well, because you're this and that. Listen, you're loving me for the wrong reason.

00:52:46--> 00:53:21

So if you want to say something word like this, make sure to give it to someone who's really most deserving to them. It's very important because in exchange if they really love you for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, you will have that beautiful companionship with them. You know one thing about love of these individuals, I want you to know that this comes with what when a man strong a man, the stronger You are a man, the stronger your man, the stronger You will love for these individuals, whether we get that from had it for the long run, so that the man couldn't defeat what the hell out of a man, anyone who possess these three qualities they will then have the sweetness of a man in

00:53:21--> 00:53:55

their hearts and one of them has said that when you love someone you love them for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's when you have that sweetness of a man in your home. So eventually, what do you get out of this if you love people for the sake of Allah in the dunya there is so much Kaboul and and acceptance and easy life and access to many things done as a panel. And in the interview. Salalah Sam says Allah azza wa jal will be calling the believers to have been originally Where are those who live who love each other for my sake, Allah, Muhammad Ali, Muhammad, Allah, Allah, Allah, this is the time when I give them my shade when there'll be no shade, but the suit of Allah subhanho

00:53:55--> 00:54:31

wa Taala my brothers and sisters, just a side note before we close in sha Allah tala, when it comes to talking about love, I'm sure that whenever we say the word love, the first thing that really comes to our mind, not necessarily, you know, the love for the sake of Allah Xhosa know, what do you say love the first thing that flashes in your mind, perhaps the image of a red heart. Maybe some people kissing or holding hands or whatever, something completely different what we're talking about over here. You know why? Because that's what we were taught consciously or subconsciously to believe what love is all about.

00:54:32--> 00:54:51

That's what it is. It's all about have this kind of human interaction in a certain way for a reason other than for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala good reason, wrong reason. It doesn't matter. But we were taught that this is the case. And that's why our young ones whenever they think of love, they always think of the love between a boy and a girl, a man and woman.

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

There is no nothing wrong with having those feelings. But we need to understand that the true, genuine, everlasting

00:55:00--> 00:55:12

Love is the one that is done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, ask from us married people right now ask them how many people they can say that their love for their spouse is still at 100% Well, I don't want you to raise your hand.

00:55:15--> 00:55:22

But it fluctuates. That love fluctuates. Today you love them. 100% tomorrow long stance.

00:55:24--> 00:55:33

And after tomorrow, you recover, you rebound. And then you go back again. It just drives you crazy. But the love for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a completely novel reason.

00:55:34--> 00:56:10

It's an unbelievable polio. And that's the thing that I want you to think of in sha Allah azza wa jal, and we teach our children, our children, they were taught that love is all about image. It's all about image. You love them because they're beautiful, they're handsome, they're so cute, they're this the data and so on. Everything is superficial image is not necessarily because of the real genuine quality that they possess and the best qualities are those are done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Finally, I would like to close with the Hadith that I mentioned last night. I live in the villa la Salaam, again, in an anass cablin. How can I find this person that I would like

00:56:10--> 00:56:19

to hold on to until the day of judgment, the prophets Allah Sam says in the masculine man, people are like 100 camels, lotta cattle,

00:56:20--> 00:56:25

from every 100 camel, you can barely find one that you trust your life with to take you across the desert.

00:56:27--> 00:56:52

And this is the life the same thing. It's a desert. It's a journey. We are travelers, the moment you're born, you're on the journey. You got your boarding pass and you're traveling right now heading towards the last panel, Donna, you better have you know that companionship, right? So who are these compounds that you're having around you? The Prophet says people like 100 camels, everybody can be good friend. But how many of them, you can truly trust him with your life when it comes to your journey to the hereafter?

00:56:53--> 00:57:15

I asked yesterday the question how many people that have 10 friends and that they can trust them with their lives and so on? Well, maybe you trust them right now. But let's see when the situation really requires that. You need them at that moment and you will see. And that's why another reminder for those who have Mashallah so many friends on Facebook, guess what? I wonder if you trust any one of them with your life.

00:57:17--> 00:57:49

It's not about how many friends you have. It's how many quality friends that you truly have in this dunya. So whatever you do, you can have many acquaintances, many friends and that's fine. There's nothing wrong with them. But if you truly want someone to take you on that journey to the Hereafter, you need to have that thicker body and that person who's always be your companion towards the hereafter. melas cannot grant you all these companionship with the people who are the best and this dunya will be the best company in the world. handleable alaminos, Alana, Mohammed and Raja Sabha
