There's a lot of competition between higher and evil.

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

We right now seeing that it's affecting our hearts affecting our lives affecting even our children.

00:00:10--> 00:00:18

And people they're struggling to see through all the clutter of these ideas and ideologies and opinions, unfortunately, even among the Muslims themselves.

00:00:19--> 00:00:57

People looking for the truth, they go online, they see all these videos circulating here and there and they get lost. Who sort of the truth What do I do in this case? Brothers and sisters, this is not a new. This has been the case in New Zealand for a long time. These Shubho had doubts for marriage, they've been thrown on us and on our way to Allah subhanho wa Taala in order to take people away from the path of Allah azza wa jal, but what do we do in this situation? What do you do you need to look for the for the truth, you need to look for that light that Allah Subhana Allah described in the Quran as basura insight. A believer sees by the light of Allah azza wa jal, a true

00:00:57--> 00:01:39

believer will see by the light of Allah subhanho wa Taala Do you have it have been given this light is it given to anybody? Is it even any way that I can acquire this light by which I can go through all these difficulties? You see Allah subhana wa Tada says in the Quran, Caja Khumba Iran Rob become, Allah made it clear. He said, I have shown you I have given you light, I've given you insight. I have shown it enlightenment. It came to you from your Lord Subhana wa Taala man Apsara phellinus. Those who see those who open their eyes and follow that enlightenment, follow that light of Allah subhanho wa Taala they get the benefit for their own souls, woman if Allah and those who

00:01:39--> 00:01:54

choose to give a blind eye to the to the basura of Allah subhanho wa Taala then the harm is only against their own selves. And Allah Subhan Allah says Allah and Allah can be Hatfield, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. He's leaving you to make the choice.

00:01:55--> 00:02:29

So do you choose to take that light and live by it? Or otherwise? We need that light. Why do we need that light and Hadith Anna Sybil Malik Radi Allahu TerraNova, which in sin and Timothy Carlos sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to Kulu Qatar Kotaku, beignet. They sat if you turn on catheter a little Muslim, there shall be times days, says before the Day of Judgment were Phaeton trials or deals issues that we go through. He says catheter I Leyland Muslim, they are so difficult to see through. So dark like the darkness of the night.

00:02:30--> 00:02:49

Like you can't even tell. You can see the direction in the darkness of that night. Casa La Silla Musa Raja Mina williamsii kathira. You wake up with full Eman, full conviction in your heart. You are so certain by the end of the day Subhanallah going through all these the all these and all these trials. They start having doubts.

00:02:50--> 00:03:15

We'll call what used to be who Williams was we heard Kevin Williams Mina and sometimes it's the opposite. They wake up they just got to give up on faith and Dean and everything. But then they go through many things in life and then Subhanallah they go back again to the Imam. Then he said salah, some coffee or dinner will be out of the minute dunya clean. They trade their Deen they trade their Eman with some of these lowly things of this dunya

00:03:16--> 00:03:54

the lowly things the cheap things of this dunya Killeen very little so sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So how can I do? How can I get that enlightenment? How can I get that basura insight in terms of confusion, but Allah Who Tabata Katara cool how do you say Billy? He said Subhana wa Tada. Tell them how Mohammed This is my way. This is the path that leads to Allah subhana wa Tada adulate Allahu Allah wa Sera, I called you to Allah azza wa jal, Allah wa sera with insight, what he's telling us have a look, there is no other way. There is no other way in terms of confusion. There is no other way but to get to that straight path to Allah subhanho wa taala. Many of us will see confusion where

00:03:54--> 00:04:30

do we go? We go dig deep into the issues, forgetting that this particular issue is part of a bigger picture a trial from Allah subhanho wa taala. So we get lost on the path of trying to see what is right and wrong about these issues without having the true light that comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala Carla Advait Allahu Allah wa sera I call to Allah azza wa jal with this insight with this alignment, the light from Allah azza wa jal will earn our money and those who follow me as well. What does that mean? This is given to everybody who follows the prophets of Allah, Allah wa salam, you want to have that insight, you want to see through the darkness of the nights of this dunya then

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

follow the example of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Allah will give you that light he promised to give the Prophet and his followers now let me commend them yatta yatta mean so there are five things that I need to acquire in order for me to be able to see through like with this whole confusion, I'm given in this clip but five things that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned to us in the Quran, they will help you see through meaning all the clutter that you see in this dunya you can you can find easy way to go through it inshallah Tabata Kota Allah without being afraid

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

So, what are these five things? Number one? The first thing that we need to think about and make sure that we have is to have the true belief in La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah Kalamata Tohei, the true Oneness of Allah azza wa jal. What does that mean? When we say the true Oneness of Allah we said handle I always say Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah to many say Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, but when you look at their loyalty in the heart, it was something or to somebody else, some have loyalty to certain groups or organizations, certain shoe, certain terracotta methodologies. So yes, they say Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, but that loyalty not really in

00:05:39--> 00:06:02

La ilaha illallah itself, it is somewhere else. Until you make that believe in Allah subhana wa sincerely and only for Allah azza wa jal absolute Sincerity, honesty about saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah What does that even mean? If you truly believe in that you will abandon anything else? Besides what Allah says in the Quran says in the and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:06:03--> 00:06:18

Today I see that a Muslim debate online and even the same question as well too. And even when you post something, they always comment on yours, debating with you over what you say, Oh, you cannot hold Islam you know two or three you cannot hold the interpretation of Islam to yourself which is true.

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

But then what you mean by that? No, they want to interpret Islam differently though,

00:06:23--> 00:07:05

in a way that is meaningful to them. But look, we have to go by what Allah says and the Prophet Salah Samson and the Sunnah. If you follow this true meaning of the hate, the true Oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala you will abandon any other ideology except that which is in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam it becomes so easy to abandon any other opinion, another ideologies, any other path, except that was clear in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us in the Quran and Medina Amano what Emile Bisou Eman on belittlement Allah eCola humble UMNO Amato those who have

00:07:05--> 00:07:26

faith those who claim to have faith Alladhina amanu what Emile Bisou Eman on Willem, they did not associate with their Eman, any kind of injustice and he means by that shook, associating anybody without with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada whether to worship or even fina fall under ways. Those who truly follow Allah subhana wa Tada and don't associate any partners with him. Hard Hola, eCola, humble.

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

Those are the ones who are going to find safety.

00:07:30--> 00:07:34

Those who will find safety and peace and tranquility in their life in the dunya. But if

00:07:36--> 00:08:15

you want to have peace, make your servitude Allah to Allah subhanho wa Taala no one else. The second thing that we need to work on to have that insight and that basura abandoning the cinema, quit selling. Now, I'm not saying quit selling to the extent that we're going to be like angels. This is impossible, because we've been created as human beings with a person with a possibility of committing sins and making mistakes. That's not what we're talking about. We're talking about don't try to do it deliberately and intentionally. And if it happens, then you immediately fix it by repenting back to Allah subhanho wa Taala because so much of this will remove a lot of will leave a

00:08:15--> 00:08:56

lot of residues on the heart will cause the heart to be sealed with the FARC and hypocrisy. Allah subhanho wa Taala says called Kela Barranquilla, Colombia Makkah New York Cebu, but no he's an in fact their hearts have been stained by all the evil they used to do it on the commit. So those who live a life of indulgence in this dunya complete indulges in whatever it is, whether it's halal or haram and it's so interesting Subhanallah when we talk about halal and haram, a lot of people think of Halal haram just the basic issues such as being away from Zina and fascia and, and murder and theft and, and drinking alcohol. That's what we think of being haram. But a lot of people don't

00:08:56--> 00:09:15

understand that using river is worse than all of this. That's also haram. lying and cheating, is also haram. Backbiting is also haram. We don't talk we don't count this seems to be big deal because it's not like drinking or committing fashion was in our murder. Now it's not a big deal. It is a big deal.

00:09:16--> 00:09:51

So if you truly want your heart to be pure and have that insight in the heart, you need to relieve it from all these sins so you can be purified. With pure heart you can get there as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, eliminate Allah Calvin's Selim except those who come to Allah subhanho wa Taala with a pure heart. So you need to quit sitting as your mom. In the story of Imam Shafi Rahim Allah, Allah Allah, he talked to his teacher, he said Akasha kotula Okay, and so I complained to my to my teacher waqia that I'm losing some of my knowledge like I can't return it as it used to, for shuddering electrical massive. He told me to quit cynic

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Lacan Bernal Eleonora, he told me Look when it comes to knowledge, that insight you're looking for is the light from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Whatever Allahu Allahu Taala RC and that light of Allah cannot be given to a sinner.

00:10:05--> 00:10:10

You want to have that insight and that light, purify yourself from distance number three,

00:10:11--> 00:10:29

to put your heart where it belongs to the complete an absolute submission and servitude Allah subhanho wa taala. When we hear the word servant of Allah azza wa jal, the word servant or slave of Allah, many people, they start thinking twice about it. Why? Because we have a negative connotation with the word slavery.

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

We have that conditioning that is us absolutely bad.

00:10:34--> 00:11:12

But when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's an honor to be a slave of Allah azza wa jal. It is an honor to stay well to be a slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala because that's what Allah subhanaw taala he how he honored his servants, the MBR as he spoke about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we spoke about a side of him called a baddie, my servants it's an honor, but how can I be that person I must My heart is always in the in the service of Allah subhana wa Tada what you guys need to do, making sure that your heart is always there? serving Allah subhana wa Tada. Submit yourself to the will of Allah azza wa jal if you read a command in the Quran, that requires

00:11:12--> 00:11:44

me to do something, even if it's against your own well, I will still say it's a man Amata Anna, I listen and obey our problem today as Muslims we have the Quran is open for us and hamdulillah by me, the level of literacy in the Ummah is way beyond what it used to be at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. We even generation from before live in 100 years ago, probably even children today carry the Quran, Israel Hamblen Arabic and other languages as well too. So having that basic literacy is there. But how many of us really can consider I read it, I understand it, I'm gonna follow the instructions.

00:11:45--> 00:12:21

You have to follow the instruction of the Quran by submitting your heart to it. Nowadays, people they come on and ask you a question and when you give them the answer, they always have all these reputations to it. Why? Why not? Oh, Allah is the Most Merciful doesn't allow this to happen. Well, he's the most merciful, that's true, but it also shooted a club, he would punish as well too. He said, You're going to have to submit yourself to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala Do not try to make your heart you know, soft just because someone else is saying this is the way it should be. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who guides these hearts. So ask Allah subhanaw taala your hearts

00:12:21--> 00:13:03

May Allah guide our hearts to immunoblotted many brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala send us the Quran and he talked about it as being bizarre. The Quran itself is light. He says about him noon, he said Shiva which means it's light, it's healing, it's guidance. And he said also, Paul had a bizarre illness. These are this is enlightenment to people talking about the Quran itself. Tala Hooda. Its guidance what Rama and mercy they call me, you know, for those who have certainty of faith, may Allah give us a certain failure but Allah mean so number four is to learn the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah Allah wa sallam Corolla with a Baraka Wattana

00:13:03--> 00:13:44

omenka maintien farheena Are they equal? Someone who's dead? And we gave them we'll give them life by what? Ha ha ha ha janela who Nora yum Shiva evenness. We gave them life by this light of the Quran. So now they walk amongst the people with this light of guidance from Allah Azusa, or the equal. He said Subhana wa Taala come a method over Lulu Matt, just an example of someone's work in the darkness doesn't know where to go. They're so lost in this dunya laser Vihara Jim and I don't even have exit doesn't have a way out of it. There's so indulged in they're so immersed in darkness, they have no light of guidance. And Allah says, Are they equal? The answer is absolutely not. So

00:13:44--> 00:13:56

pursue that light from Allah subhanho wa Taala by learning the knowledge of the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And number five, the fifth one, my dear brothers and sisters, all of us I mentioned to you, it doesn't come easy.

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

What does that mean? You have to put the effort.

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

You need to put the effort it doesn't come easy. Sitting down at home, or spending most of your time at work and dedicating absolutely nothing except the the left over of your time. For the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's not sufficient.

00:14:16--> 00:14:53

You're gonna have to dedicate that time for it. During the day during the night, you wake up for Salah I don't have time during the day, then dedicate some time during the night. While I'm too busy at night, then dedicate some time during the day. There has to be you have to put the effort there because it's not sufficient. Karla terracotta Allah Muhammad Hassan, whoever does good good deeds. Men that can our own male or female were who were more men with true conviction with full Eman and their hearts for a no here no higher tanto Eva, we shall give them a goodly life. Allah said they will give you a good life which means it's with guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala and they say

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

what an agenda agilon Be acid in Macedonia, I'm alone on a day of judgment they should be rewarded for the best of what they've done in this dunya

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

So brothers and sisters, in the confusion of our time, there is no other way. But back to Allah subhana wa Tada it's only one way and to have that light, you have to fulfill these things. You need to make sure that I have that light of Allah subhanahu wata Anna by understanding the meaning of his oneness because if I believe in him one to one, I will abandon anyone else's guidance except for his subhanaw taala. I submit my heart to him. I put the effort into it. I learn the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and it quit all the sins, hopefully I get that light of Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah give us all that light and unalterable alameen and in our life of course,

00:15:36--> 00:15:40

we'll call ya that was tough for me. Welcome. What is that? I'm assuming it was tough in one of the.

00:15:53--> 00:16:28

Alhamdulillah Bananaman sallahu wa salam Baraka, Vina Muhammad Anwar early he was to have your cell him with a slim and cathedra mama bad about Allah, my dear brothers and sisters, when it comes to this guidance from Allah subhanho wa taala.

towards the end, he said Subhana wa Taala conclude the surah by saying while Latina Jaya hadoo fina Lana dnm sabudana when Allah Allah man Messina and those who strive on our way, we shall guide them to the straight path.
