Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Welcome back again to the ICJ pre Iftar program.

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

Today I'm going to speak about something called Understanding Allah subhanaw taala as messages to you, and I start talking about something called the moment of realization, or loss of the drug, the moment of realization is one of the most important moments that passes by every human being. Psychologists call it a moment, when your awareness is elevated, all of a sudden, you discover a piece of information that makes all the difference in how you see yourself, or how you see your life. This piece of information could have been invisible to you. And it's your first day to discover it. Or it could have been a moment of realization to affect that you know about yourself,

00:00:46--> 00:01:28

but you're trying to escape from it. Certain events happen. So your awareness level really elevates and understand or realize, in this moment of realization, Allah subhanaw taala is a witness. He subhanaw taala sees every person as his own heart is exposed in front of him. And he subhanaw taala says, we will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord, that He is over all things that witness in the moment of the appearance of truth, whether it's about you or about anything around you, Allah subhanaw taala becomes your witness. The moment you realize you're not fulfilling

00:01:28--> 00:02:04

your duties towards your parents, and it's time to live under their feet, serving them, till the day the day they meet their Lord, or the day you meet yours. The moment you realize you're not fulfilling your duties towards your family and your kids. And it's time that you have a real role in raising them in a way that pleases Allah subhanaw taala the moment that you realize that you're far away from Allah subhanaw taala and that you've lived many days disobeying Him, and it's time you return to him and tell him, Oh Allah, please forgive me. The moment you realize that you're not fulfilling your duties towards your own self, your own health, and you're getting older, although

00:02:04--> 00:02:44

you're not really that old. And it's about time you take care of your health and your bad habits. The moment you realize a certain traits that you're you that you use with people around you from being short tempered or miserly, or being hasty in judging others, and you keep losing those around you because of this trait. All of a sudden, something happens that makes everything as clear as the light, crystal clear. You have to change. The moment of realization is one of the most important moments in a human beings life. And Allah subhanaw taala mentions many moments of realization that humanity passed by and he told us about it in the Holy Quran. First of all, Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:44--> 00:03:26

states true facts and that if there is anything that is wrong in your life, Allah subhanaw taala shows it to you that it is wrong. Because one of the ways that Allah subhanaw taala guides you is that he leads you to the right, he has to show you or reveal to you the wrong from the right. And our last panel, Johannes Dietz, the sensor for Toba verse 115. One he says, and Allah would not let a people stray after he has guided them, until he makes clear to them what they should avoid. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of all things. There isn't a person that goes astray unless Allah subhanaw taala shows him or her the right path, how to live in the closeness or female at last panna which

00:03:26--> 00:04:10

Allah and how to live amongst people while being loved. Allah has to show you first he showed humanity through 124,000 messengers and prophets, and he shows us every day through people who advices and constantly talk to us, he says inserted an adverse 55 and thus do We detail the verses and thus the way of the criminals will become evident the way of the criminals or the way of wrongdoing, Allah subhanaw taala allows certain things to happen in our lives. So it is clear to us that this is wrong, that it is not the right path. But why? Why do we pass through these moments of realization? Why do we pass through moments when the truth is crystal clear in front of our eyes?

00:04:11--> 00:04:50

You see, in this moment when you understand Allah subhanaw taala is wisdom and His message that he's trying to send you through this moment, you will be able to live that moment and deal with it correctly. And you will be able to direct your feelings to receiving this beautiful gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala it's like a habit from Allah subhanaw taala the moment of sorry, the moment of realization is a moment of revival. Hear from the giver of life and move you to meanings that almost died inside of you. Because your neglect are a simple turning of your back on it because some truths from us need from us what are they need from you effort and the ability to change your habits and

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

your ways, how you treat others and bettering yourself and to go back and revisit your responsibilities towards people in this life or towards Allah subhanaw taala

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

it. So it's a moment of survival from two meanings that we killed inside ourselves. Now, psychologists say something that's really neat. And that is, every person has two characters living inside him or her. The first is the commentator. And the second is the editor. The commentator is the one who watches and observes, as if he hadn't, he doesn't even live in this world. And when any problem occurs, he starts saying, Oh, the people need to do this, or the people need to do that. Or they need to improve from themselves. And if someone advises him or her, he responds, or she responds, yeah, you're right, if only people would use their brains and understand. So he just

00:05:39--> 00:06:16

comments as if he is a maestro that administers everything from afar. And it has nothing to do with him. And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this type of person or these kinds of people in spirit, Mohammed, verse 16, when he says, Subhan, Allah to Allah, and among them, O Muhammad, are those who listen to you until when they depart from you. They say to those who were given knowledge, what is he just said now? Those are the ones of whom Allah has sealed over their hearts, and who have followed their own desires. They sit and listen to say, no Mohammed sigh syndrome. And then what happens once they leave? They said, like, what is this? What is he said, it's nothing to do with

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

them. And then Allah subhanaw taala continues in verse 17, saying, and those who are guided he increases them and guidance and gives them their righteousness. The words of the Prophet Mohammed, Salah Sal and made them take the advice, or the words of the prophets personally, it's Allah subhanaw taala. His message to me, when I listened to what Sina Muhammad saying, I take it personally as if he's talking to me, it's like it's not I'm out of the world, it's somebody else it has to do with somebody else. No, I have to take it and think of it or apply to myself. I attended the Friday Harbor, the words were, for me a problem, a problem or an issue that happened, what is my

00:06:51--> 00:07:31

role in it? That is the emitter. As for the commentator, he sees that any words he hears doesn't apply to him, but applies to those around him. The emitter is the person who is always alert when any situation occurs, he asks himself right away, what is my role? What am I learning from this? What is Allah subhanaw Dallas message to me through this incident that just occurred, the Imam when he was talking was the topic relevant to my life or not? That's the admit of that's who we need to be all of us. A lot of us when we pass by the moment of realisation, we try to resist it or defend ourselves that we don't have that fault, or that we don't need to work on ourselves and try to

00:07:31--> 00:08:11

improve our ways. And something called justification or to Breer happens. And psychologists call it a defense mechanism. When we realize a certain fault or problem in us, we start defending ourselves. Some people deny, while others justify, and others put the blame, blame or sorry, on those around them. There are about 10 different mechanisms of defense. But the most common one is the justification you always find an excuse. No one can deny the moment they realize their fault. For example, I just realized that I am short tempered, and I'm losing those around me. Or I just realized that my mother will leave this world while she's not pleased with me, due to my lack of

00:08:11--> 00:08:51

fulfilling my responsibilities towards her and my dad. This type of realization, you can't deny it's a fact. But unfortunately, some of us justify it. Don't turn down this guidance from Allah subhanaw taala. Don't turn around the gift. When he makes you realize by finding excuses by saying I'm like this, because you know how bad this world is, or I saw because of how poor and needy I was, or I or because the other person provoked me. Don't turn down the moment of realization with your justification. Instead revive it, how, number one, seek ALLAH subhanaw taala or you know him as the best friend, he's actually asked for his help so he can change you to better yourself or help you to

00:08:51--> 00:09:36

better yourself. Number two, share what you're going through with someone close to you that will actually help you. Number three, define the moment of realization and think to yourself, what is it that I need to do? Number four, take a step. At this point. Every moment of realization will move you a step ahead and develop you and make you a better you. And after a while you were someone else? What happened? You understood a las pantallas message that was directed to you. Oh Allah, the Lord of the Worlds open our hearts and enlighten our vision to what you need from us and help us understand your messages to us from everything that goes around us and take our hands your Allah and

00:09:36--> 00:09:45

guide us to you if we become weak as we seek you. You're up for international Moeller international Nasiriyah was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
