We bear witness that no one is worthy of worship but Allah And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed his final messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah. The best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. May Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those who listen to the best of speech, the book of Allah and follow its commandments. And may Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those who come to know the best of ways the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:32 --> 00:01:38

and make us amongst his followers. Allah mean Allahumma Amin Allahumma

00:01:39 --> 00:01:50

yaha Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who la mer meanwhile him while while editing in a real coup, hum ola de God,

00:01:51 --> 00:02:03

we can absolutely safely say that the biggest concerns that parents have nowadays is the well being of their children.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:55

And time passes by so quickly Subhanallah that this is the beginning of the year, the school year. I mean, we will be saying that I cannot believe my baby from yesterday, is being sent off to college. I cannot believe my little kids are about to start high school. I cannot believe the kid that I was holding and playing with you know they are they on their way to the university? May Allah Subhana Allah protect them all. And may Allah Subhana Allah make them successful Europa aalameen. In sometimes one of the most difficult decisions to make is do I send my child out of town? Does he stay with me, but this is such a good opportunity. And sometimes parents, for many different reasons

00:02:55 --> 00:03:03

end up sending their kids away. Not that they don't want the kids but they want the best for their, for their kids.

00:03:04 --> 00:03:18

And whether it be in town, out of town, man, what can I tell my child? Now that my child is about to embark on a new, but what can I tell my child?

00:03:19 --> 00:03:29

Because as you know, so many things are happening around colleges and universities of concern, of course, is the enrollment.

00:03:31 --> 00:04:01

Enrollment is low 17% colleges are suffering nowadays because students are not coming to college after COVID. Our own college here southwest, prior to college, they had 12,000 students. Right now they have a little bit a little less than about 6500 students, seven campuses. 6500 students, students are not coming back again. Students are not coming. I don't know why, why this is happening.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:10

But then there are the challenges that we specifically Muslim parents are very, very concerned about as we send our kids off to school.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:38

Like many people, the first challenge that these kids are going to face is the idea of homesick. And this is the first time my kids are leaving me. This is the first time that my kids are leaving home. I've never been away from my parents before. But now all of the sudden, people start feeling homesick within the first month within the first few weeks. You know, once they settle in their classes and they know what their schedule is like. They start feeling homesick.

00:04:40 --> 00:04:59

You got the idea of what about the pressure that they're going to get. They say that the most difficult time for college and university students is the first semester because of lack of supervision. Parents are no longer around. There is a lot of free time especially if they are not working and there is a lot of pee

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

Pressure coupled with excitement and sometimes boredom, and that is not a good combination,

00:05:06 --> 00:05:58

free time, boredom, excitement, or this lack of excitement, and then there is the pressure, people would want to be excited. And that's why is statistically speaking, you know, the first time that people try alcohol is usually around the first semester in college or at the university. May Allah subhanaw taala protect our children, Europe and Ireland. So what can I tell my child, rather than we are telling our children? Why don't we let Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam, speak to our children through us, Your Honor, BRABUS Contura defend Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam mesh Ebina zumal, devotee elect YAHWAH call. Abbas said, one time I was sharing a ride or I was traveling with a

00:05:58 --> 00:06:10

prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We don't know whether they would walk in or they were riding on something. He said that I was walking with the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then he looked back at me and he said, Yes.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:20

Then the Prophet of Allah had looked at me and he said, Young man in need, or Allah mocha collimate I am about to teach you some words.

00:06:21 --> 00:07:10

To be one Subhan Allah had the warhead. Yeah. And the estimator behind that hadith squalicum alhaja even adverse woolen Koblin Hijra bcls center word, to show that you appreciate this conversation that's taking place between Ibn Abbas and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, keep this in mind. As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is talking to Evan Abbas keep in mind that Ibn Abbas was born three years prior to the migration of the prophets Allah Allah wa salam. So at most absolutely most of us Abbas was about 14 or 15 years old, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is talking to him. Or hon Abbas, via the Hill had a bad patch come slides supply stability

00:07:12 --> 00:07:24

at how old he was, because he sometimes we make the mistake that if you consistently talk to your young boy, as a young boy, don't be surprised if he continues to act like a young boy.

00:07:26 --> 00:08:11

And we see this happening nowadays in their 20s they're still acting like teenagers in their 30s they're still acting like teenagers in their 40s and they're addicted to video games. Treat them speak to them, like young boys, they will behave and act like young voice. Speak to him like a man. And you'll see that a man is emerging out of him. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is speaking to Ibn Abbas 1415 years old. And what does he say? Yeah, well, now, that young man, I am about to teach you some words in NATO ally Mooka kalimat. Listen, now this is the conversation that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is having with an Abbas and this is the type of conversation that we

00:08:11 --> 00:08:13

need to have with our kids.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

Therefore we know her, you have to

00:11:09 --> 00:11:40

You know, this idea of we are afraid of pressure, we are alone, an ohmmeter low wage temac Allah and Yahoo kabhi che in Lumia De Luca elaborate in pocket about LA VALIC is it that on my mind, talking to this young man, he said the know this, if all the people were to gather and decide that they're going to harm you, they cannot harm you in the least unless it be something that Allah subhanaw taala has already decreed for you.

00:11:41 --> 00:12:06

00:12:18 --> 00:12:45

Sense of Kurama dignity. don't you teach? Don't beg. Don't ask. Don't do don't don't involve yourself in these things. You know, be somebody who works with dignity. By Anna Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Allah, Allah, NASA is that that we gave our allegiance or pledge to the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we will not ask people for anything.

00:12:46 --> 00:12:50

We're gonna have dinner, either, as opposed to who knows.

00:12:51 --> 00:13:20

So much so that we will be riding on our mount. Your whip falls down he said, we would get down and pick it up. It's tasking getting off the horse getting off the camel getting off whatever it is that you're you can just ask the person a man can you hand it over? He said don't do that. The the even that much is what happens at that. This idea of being dignified. Living with honor, not begging, not asking that don't, don't do that.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:27

Then it is the art of Allah, Allah He Phaedra ha. You're an efficient

is a young man. Get to know Allah subhanaw taala in times of prosperity, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will remember you or know you in times of adversity.

00:13:44 --> 00:14:10

It's very easy to beg and pray when we are in trouble. You know, what's the first thing that atheists do? When they're in trouble? They start praying to god. Oh god, oh god, oh god. So it's a no no. The way we do it is said that get to know Allah Subhana Allah, in your times of ease. Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah will know you in your times of difficulties.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:16

Power of Allah Allah Heafy Raha yarraka vishuddha

why Allah and the Muslim Sabra. And then he said to my son said, remember this, he said that victory? triumph is for those who patiently persevere.

00:14:33 --> 00:14:35

Now four years is a long time

00:14:36 --> 00:14:57

in getting through this degree or that degree, man that takes a lot of sacrifice. It takes a lot of sleepless nights. It just takes a lot. So the prophets Allah Allah Allah Himself is teaching us be in school matters between any other matters said that we're alum, anonymous Rama Sabra, that if you want to eventually succeed, you've got to be patient.

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

We

00:15:01 --> 00:15:10

were Annamma and rosary you're strong and remember that with every difficulty eventually comes ease.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:19

Jeff noticed off and then he said depends have been lifted.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:23

And the ink has dried up

00:15:24 --> 00:15:52

Kenny roofing at UCLA in October booktube you know this idea of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that depends have been lifted, and the ink has dried up and the pages are all dry. Now the point here is that it has been decreed in in that don't don't don't go around seeking haram don't go around seeking illegal don't go around seeking this and that, but that's what you do. This is part of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would engage young people.

00:15:53 --> 00:16:05

In addition to that also been inspired by the different teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is this importance of talking to our children? Who they who do they be friend,

00:16:06 --> 00:16:23

one of the most crucial decisions that we make in life is the company that we keep when Alibaba demon taco was slow Hibou saham and Ilmari lattice was Alon

00:16:24 --> 00:16:52

areni renewal valuable Maharani yesterday said if you want to know person said before you get to know the person asked about the type of company that they keep. What kind of friends do they have? Man, our friends have so much influence over us. Many times depending on the developmental stage that we are in in life. Many times our friends have more influence on us than our own parents.

00:16:54 --> 00:17:10

For Leon Go ahead, Manu Harlan and Marco Alladhina Khalili, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a person is usually adapt the lifestyle of the company that they keep. So be mindful, are the type of company that you keep.

00:17:11 --> 00:17:54

And that's a good, a very important conversation you've got to have with your children all have to do that at any stage, but in especially when they're no longer around us. Who are your friends? Who do you say to keep good company? Don't be afraid to say, Man, I want you to be friend, a practicing Muslim. And there's nothing wrong with saying that. I really want my kids to be in the company of practicing Muslims, a sense of belonging. I am not alone. Nothing wrong. Does that make us hateful? No, it just makes us practical. Man. It is easy to be a practicing Muslim when you are in the company of other practicing Muslims.

00:17:55 --> 00:18:16

Your whole interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know this idea of inviting people to being part of a group in Nanaia Z boo, meaning Hana mill ossia. He said, You know, the wolf is only able to devour the sheep that as when stray from the rest of the flock.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:54

You watch, you know, the animal planet and you just you see that the way that the beast, you know, prey on a group, what did they do? They isolate one, the minute you get isolated, you're you're done. You devour it. So the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said, this is very, very practical. Be careful about the company that you keep. You've got to be careful about the company that you keep. And if you are in the wrong company, you will absolutely start making the wrong decisions. May Allah subhanaw taala protect our children. May Allah subhanaw taala grant them success in this life as well as in the hereafter era will Allah mean Aquila, Allah was told for Allah who are looking for

And we want to wish our children the absolute best. Like I said, be locally, be out of town, be that they're starting. Its high school, elementary school, going away for college, reminding our children that in our deen knowledge is never for the sake of knowledge. Knowledge is never for the sake of money, but we are taught that knowledge is for the sake of humanity. How does what I know what I am learning? How is it going to contribute to the betterment of humanity? The whole interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam man

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

Get me a human. Hola Hola. Hola iya and Gemma hula hula Billy German menarini Ahmed

00:20:09 --> 00:20:26

said that whosoever conceals knowledge that he is blaming that he has been blessed with from Allah subhanho wa taala. On that day because the concealment was on the mouth, he said that shall be riddled with the brittles of the Hellfire. Give you an example.

00:20:28 --> 00:21:08

The most common disease that kills people nowadays is malaria. About 24,000 People die every single day because of malaria. You would think that big pharmaceutical companies are going to be all over it. You know, let's find a vaccine. Let's find a cure for malaria, you would think that, but then you'd be surprised to find out that most of the research that is done is actually done on lotions and shampoos and conditioners. Why do you do that? What's about all who's going to pay? So here we have knowledge that is not for the sake of humanity, but knowledge for the sake of money?

00:21:09 --> 00:21:23

In our deen and SubhanAllah. The beauty of our deen is that there is no dichotomy between secular knowledge and religious knowledge. What are the main jamaludin You've had the taxi or the LM duniya will

la angulation high the cone Allah and Monzo wa Kitab, Allah Hill must for what what do we say? We say that this is the creation of Allah. This is the revelation of Allah, whether you are studying His revelation, whether you are studying His creation, ultimately, you are seeking knowledge about Allah subhanho wa taala. There is no dichotomy in our deed. But ultimately, as we embark on learning, we want to learn for the sake of humanity. And of course, through that comes people making money, and all of these and all of these things. But Subhan, Allah, once again, time passes so quickly. Time passes really, really quickly. For example, you know that it has been a year since our

00:22:15 --> 00:22:25

sister Nazim passed away. May Allah Subhana Allah bless her soul, Europa, Allah mean, when people just say, Are you Has it really been a year? Time is passing by man.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:42

I remember. People say, look, I remember holding my kids. And now I remember sending my kids away. I don't know what just happened. It's been 1518 years, I can't fathom that has been 18 years since that happens.

00:22:43 --> 00:23:25

So those who still have their kids at home, and those who are still with their parents, let's take advantage of the presence, our presence with each with each other. And once again, may Allah subhanaw taala protect our children. May Allah Subhana Allah protect our families. May Allah subhanaw taala grant them success in this life as well as in the Hereafter.
