Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala
the movement does not have a better day. So that response should always mean that you are good, because it gives you something that is good. You think important that is good. A lot of tests you, your patient have a lot and that's good. So the condition of an entirely good life is only for the believer, according to the police officer. And so your response should always be good. Because in the life of the believer is nothing but good is good in everything that happens to him or her job on
the topic today about a club.
I'm going to amend them slightly because I was told that you know, the community here, this is something that is going to kind of be in the hands
and manuals, and other and things of this nature. So I'll briefly cover the some of the small points about a flop. But then I will also introduce a topic that actually helps one to present this a lot. And it has to do with something that we all suffer from. And it's it's the rise and fall of the men, how are you man comes and goes because these two things are demanded they synonymous because hustle and bustle. Allah Allah said that demand is not the substance of your hopes and your desires not what you want and dream and you want to be the greatest believer you want to pray all night and the best all day you sit back thinking about being a super Muslim every day is not the substance of man.
He said demand is that settles itself on your heart and becomes manifested in your actions, your afterlife becomes a product of the event. So if the problem with it will always be problems with it. So we'll try to discuss both of those in time
and might have taken a lot of effort to make sure that any narration I can do for the profit of ASAP is as authentic as possible, authenticated by the great scholars of Islam. So please and john if you find that to be incorrect, for some reason, notify me notify me and
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said something very beautiful images, they're invaluable. And you can find that a number of the collections that are Russell
said the most weighty thing, the most weighty thing that will be placed on one scale of good deeds on the Day of Judgment is what anyone know how to study. If you've been to these capacitors,
machines, but yes, you're
Good man's that good matters is going to be the most weighty thing that is placed upon your skin of the deeds of the Day of Judgment. Not your song. Not your CNN. Not yours. Not yours okay? Not even know your love being good. is the most weighty thing to go into scale. Why? Anybody have a concept of what you see I have to get to the thing, because if I just lectured to you half of you would already be brain dead by the end of it. And what I'm saying isn't bouncing off of you like when you come to class. You know the teacher says something for an hour you don't remember any of it. Because you're not thinking I need to get you to think the mind is like a parachute. You jump out of the
plane and open that bears what happens
to the ground. It needs to be open to work. I need you to work so anybody can theorize about why is the most heavy thing that will be placed on my skin.
Such as you can speak to you can speak
it will affect other people, too.
Why is it heavier than all the
all these the bad guys
We do for Allah is
the root of everything. Beautiful answer anything add to that
is all about reformation of one character through a bad that a man doesn't need it right? Does it need it? I need your worship, the worship has the benefit too. If the worship leader doesn't benefit him, then who doesn't benefit? Well if it's us, Allah tells us in the Rocky masala, why in a salon Other than
that, indeed the salon will prevent one from the Phoenicia from the evil wicked things to establish a salon for this reason. So if someone has a great event that they're there, the event is events, but the rough mark is terrible. Then there's a disconnect between the worship and the miners. Because worship is supposed to affect someone is supposed to affect you. If you leave practice a lot, and the first thing you're gonna do is you focus your name or Allah or you don't cut your friend out or you go into out your mother or a father or you present bad manners, then that's a lot you just did was ritual acts, there wasn't really a lot behind it, there was no substance to it. If
you fast the month of Ramadan, the prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said that there are people who will pass the month of Ramadan, and they will get no benefit from it except hunger and thirst. Why because it did not benefit him. They left Ramadan the same way they meant if you leave Ramadan, the same way you meant it, then according to most of the demand, that is a proof upon you that your Salah they are your fasting was not accepted in
the same way with Hajj. If you go to college, spend all that time and money and effort and you come back from hives that exact same way as you left, it is a good sign that a lot of rejection is from you. If you're embarrassed, that is not affecting your manners, then you can take it as a sign of rejection from a lump that Allah does not is not appreciated and does not want to accept you or evaluate for whatever reason, maybe there's no sincerity in it. Maybe it's not done according to the Quran and Sunnah. Maybe your heart is there, there's no, there's no escalus things of this nature. But if someone has good proper worship, their management automatically be effective, it's going to
automatically be affected.
Also the properties that have
been said that someone who has good matters can obtain the same reward. As someone who spent all night praying and all day fasting, none of us can accomplish this task. None of us can spend every night in fact reading and editing the fasting, it's impossible. It's a game for the main for the progress of the body to send them send someone with good manners can achieve the same results can achieve the same reward of this person. Who wouldn't do this. Also, the prophet SAW Selim is narrated by him ematic, in what he said to the men,
that was not set, but to perfect your manners, that the reason the Prophet lays that out was that I was sent was to protect our manners. This is also why this is so important, because the student is following the mannerism of the process of aligning senators and allies of agenda to firms about him. What in Nevada that would have been I mean, that we had been put you upon noble manners, your manners are the are great, and a lot of confirms that for the Prophet sallallahu said in his book. So when we look at the certain numbers, we should not look at the certainly not as just rituals of music,
eating with the right hand of sleeping on the right side of pulling our pants, and all of these things are things we should look at as managers. Because the greatest part of the sooner or the sooner is the character of the profit center. When I show up, although I was asked by a guy to describe the profits on the wall and he was sending them she said Canada
that his entire character was the one that said she didn't need to say he was like this. He was like that you said no, he was the one manifested and
this is why also I can't go on this engine today. But the Quran and the Sunnah, and I will get to specifics briefly but not in a tangent. The Quran and the Sunnah are inseparable. If you separate them, you have none. And I was meanwhile very shortly.
Also a few more things and then we'll get to this issue. Also one of
one of our set of the idea even while Rahim Allah Allah said that bad or excuse me, good deeds cannot make up for bad manners, the good deeds, meaning that you do a lot of a better to give a lot of money to the master you pray over.
We fast a lot of yada yada yada, it can't make up for your bad manager bad manners will defeat you. But good manners may very well be able to make up for your bad deeds, that the bad deeds that you do in the sense that you do good manners, since they are more weighty on the scale of the good of good actions may make up for your sin and make up for your sin. Because when we have good manners, it affects everyone around us It permeates not only to us, but it permeates to our families and our societies. This is what gave the companions the great statement couldn't
that they were the best nation that ever came forward for mankind. Why? Because they commanded them to good baby for baby boy and they believed that they had the mannerism Allah says about them that he was pleased with them, and they were pleased with him. Allah says about my seven year old they have beaten us weakness already to Islam and two gentlemen, this was the this was the greatest group of human beings that Allah ever brought forward for mankind after the prophets and messengers.
And their manners were pristine, pristine, pristine.
Lastly, and I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you've heard a lot of this I
also have an ad with
Eamon Malik was one of the early emails.
In email Malik was known as the great demand of Medina.
Medina, now what generation was he?
he was incorrect.
you will put your arm up and tell me and cut it off.
So Malik met people who met the companions that people met, it was very close to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam in timeframe. Now when he went to study with the scholar of Medina, if you know that scholar is Don't raise your hand
is gonna find out, no question about it because it's one that a lot of people don't know. But go find out who the teacher of the mathematic, not just Evel Knievel.
But there was a great scholar in Medina that he learned from
when his mother sent him to the scholar, she told him go to him and learn from his awful lot before you learn from his studies man, before you study his knowledge, and there was a student of the mathematic, if you want to know that you can do some homework as well. Not gonna maybe
do some homework. There was a student of the family to study with the man for 20 years. But after one year, he had gained a general engine from the map to relate the Quran to relate the idea that he was related to relate back and and things of that nature. He had a general idea just to go teach. But he stayed with the man for 19 more years. And someone asked him why did you spend so much time in the making manner. He said I spent one year studying his writing and the other 19 studying because after 19 years, our sense of meaning our predecessors who came before us used to say that we were taught the way we were taught the book of Allah, that we were taught manners, the same way we
were taught the book of Allah azza wa jal. So
it's very beautiful. And and if you see people who have these pristine manners, there are different talents. There are 1000s of people all over the world with the Dean of a lot, they have knowledge, but very seldomly, do you find that one in between that his mentors meet you before his knowledge and it gets to you, that when you meet him, his manners affect you before he ever opens a word of his mouth, or opens his mouth is matter of fact, I've met a number of these people. There was a dear friend of mine, and a lot of them have today come from a very specific area of the world that areas less for some reason with manners. A friend of mine, his name is Abdullah. I don't know if you guys
have ever had the opportunity to have our hotel.
Wonderful. Aberdeen is a beautiful friend of mine
with a lot of freedom from this low condition setting right now, but he went to study and for me
and monilinia is a place where only the strong survive, only the strong survive. I know a lot of men who have gone there and come running back in the tail between the legs very, very quickly. I mean, some places in Mauritania, where the students studying just now has to be
Getting together to get into electricity. And it's only by generator. It's a very hard life, you sleep on the ground around you in the desert and attendance and massage and go to palm trees and things of that nature.
He said when he went there, he went there with another, another brother from the States. And they wanted to go there and learn the theme of love. So they went there. And the first thing they were told by the sheriff was go learn the Quran, when you finish learning the entire Quran, and do not do servitude for us, you know, be there discern the other people and things of that nature, when you've done that for a while, come back to us. And they did that for a while. We don't want to once they got frustrated. So they went back to the dealership, we want to learn, you know, we want to learn, you know, we want to learn that they want to learn the deep knowledge of Islam. He said, Go back and
he said, Have you finished?
And have you served this properly, and you learn the mannerisms of the people here.
So he said, Go back. So they went back. And then a couple months later, they got frustrated, again came back.
And Michelle said the same thing. And I
realized what they were being taught, they have been taught manners, they will be taught first of all the book of Allah, and second to have some manners, but the other brother didn't realize that. So he barged into the office of the champion, where there was a bunch of students, young children, learning the Quran, or excuse me, not learning karate, but reciting the work of Allah and learning from the shift. And all of them were like half the age of things too many. And so in order to check on that we've been in and out for like six months, and we haven't learned anything. You haven't taught us a single thing except told us to go make food and certain people and you know, and learn
He laughed at him and said, there's not a single person who has ever crossed the threshold in this room that you just walked into that hasn't done all of that, but hasn't, hasn't memorized the book of the law, and has learned that matters and
and the young man looked at these kids in the room, he was actually made to tell me these kids have their own bath and they start laughing.
Because he was speaking through a Trojan a translator. He said, This guy here can't even speak the language properly. He hasn't memorized the book of a lot in these matters automatically, the way he walked into this room prove that he has not learned his luck yet. So what is this phone in here doing? And he learned the hard way, you know? So if you look at the scholars that come out and more things, I don't know if any of you know about beautiful monitor scholars like Shem, Ham and Moscow fashion painting. I mean smpd and the likes of them. Their of love is something that is magnificent. Not only that, but a was blessed these men so much that students that come in graduate from the
normal classroom in Montana, are forbidden from memorization competitions anywhere in the world. I don't know if you know that. If you're from out of mania, you can't go to memorization competitions. Why? Because it's almost primary school education to memorize the Quran. And all six books have a handy with every Sunday, and the authenticity that's just like primary school education from them. So they memorize books, they don't read books, they memorize books. I mean, I've sat under
levy for a number of years now going back and forth to Medina, and 100
as well, and Chen Mohammed sits in his chair with his legs, folded his water over his face, and he puts his face in his lap and he gives an hour's long dumps and just quoting from both from page from number from verse from paragraph, okay, pull out this book and this page and you'll find it. I mean, we as students get lost and lost and we have all the books in front of us and he's just going on and on and on and on.
We can't find the page number by time you're gone. And when it comes to the Quran, if you want to know what he means according to any of the capacity that exists he will tell you from the darkness that he never had a book with him ever. I mean this is the a lot being molded into these people and it shows to what I was less than with I mean Aflac will take care of it way to get a very long way.
So when it comes to mannerism it's the thing that we have lost the most the members You know, there are so many members that I've met that said 100 in length for a for me meeting Islam before the Muslims and I have to unfortunately agree, you know that I knew Islam properly before ever going to some country. Seriously, I mean, had I been a brand new Muslim.
Okay, just let me know
where I got a very formal swim when I first went to Egypt, and I had to run away from you guys soon. Even so in the house
Sometimes if you I almost am glad that non Muslims are not allowed to go to Mecca. Medina is a little more laid back, but Mecca. I mean, if you drop the non Muslim out right in front of the house right in front of the Kaaba, they would run out run sometimes seriously, because what's going to happen, they're going to get pushed and shove and shove and is a group of sisters gonna come by and kick them and then they're gonna get thrown up into the air. I mean, who knows what might happen with this person, they might not live if they don't know if you don't have to move very quickly you can get hurt. Try to kiss her the last one
might be like this is I mean, I realistically don't like to braid and stuff up in front of the camera. It's not so much either, but I really orange sometimes I've gotten punched a number of times for trying to pray in your house. Because you see it and if you if you ever watch on the TV, you'll notice they'll show the the cabin holidays right before the event is finished, they will move away from that corner because they don't want anybody to see what happens because what happens the
guy next to them and then jumping from the Blackstone and my life
so luck is really ridiculous. I mean, we don't have any manners and sisters. You guys gotta go see the prophets agreement Medina, it's seriously will be no goes at all for us. And around noon, we'll be sitting over this in the shed and literally sounds like a herd of elephants running.
In here 10 different languages screaming at each other nobody nobody likes.
It's just really a problem that we have to face. Our members really don't reflect when we say we leave. Really they don't.
Because we have to understand that our entire Deen rests upon our mannerism rests upon our mannerism, you can have very little knowledge about Islam, you can have right at the proper dinner, because that's probably the most you can have proper up into about Islam and very little knowledge, but great manners, and you will be a more beneficial Muslim than someone with a lot of knowledge with Imams, because that person's knowledge is not benefiting them at all. If your knowledge that is little as benefiting, you know, what am I saying that this person is a greater movement in front of the law as the agenda. And when we speak of the baby. I get very annoyed when people use the title
shift for my name, and just really annoys me because it's, it's an insult to that title, it is an insult to the title. And I told him that he said, Look,
a chef, a scholar in Islam is not the man who have the most knowledge. It's not the men who have the most knowledge. It's the person who has knowledge that he himself benefits from that knowledge. And he benefits other people is that the scholar and the scholar is the person who shares what he knows to be true. And he stops when he does not know. And he refrains from anything that is done. That's the scar that's the true scar and is not the person that can sculpt the most verses and run his mouth and this and that. But his mannerism pushes people away from the team. So we have to understand the pristineness of manners. And we need to especially understand this for our children.
If you don't learn how to teach your children manners, then you're never going to teach them to be a good even if your children don't learn to have a healthy fear of you. Forget this whole time that either a friend thing they'll happen throughout their life, and you can be their friend later on. But if your children don't learn to have a healthy fear of you, how are you going to teach them to fit on those who they can't see, if they don't fear you, whom they see every single day? How are you going to teach them the fear of loved ones until we don't think about these things. We don't realize it. I knew my grandfather loved me to death. But I also know that if I step out of line, I would get
jacked across the room for it.
That's just the way it was. I loved my grandparents to death. But I don't know if I spoke back to my grandmother, that I better learn to duck very quickly. abuti It's just the reality of the matter. And I say and humbled enough for my upbringing. Even though it was not an Islamic upbringing. I was taught manners, like nobody else matters in the south of the United States is the thing you cannot live without. You have to have manners. You didn't come into my home without walking in and greeting someone in the house. You didn't walk up all over the house. You didn't show up late for dinner. You didn't disrespect you said yes sir. No, sir. Yes, ma'am. No, ma'am, please. Thank you. And that's
it. My grandfather was the type of individual that told you one time and that's it once once the second time, you will find out and he was that type of man that could look at you and you know, whatever the heck it was you were doing was bad. And you better stop right now. That look, we just need to go right through.
And it really gave me an understanding when I became most of what fear is, that is this type of fear multiply that this is the creative. If I had this type of fear from my grandparents, then I should feel a lot. Much more than this much, much more than this. But if your children really over
They become the master of the home, and you become the slave. And they become the one making the rules and you become the one following with him. And they are the one doing the intimidating, then when you tell them if you're a law
seriously, I've seen it too many times, we need to learn to teach our children manners, teach our children matters.
And we need to instill in them from an early age before you teach your children how to pray. So you should teach them how to have good manners seriously.
Because if they don't have good manners, they're there. In front of Allah, Allah is not going to be
a good teacher children manage. From very, he said that you love them, but teach them that you will check them out.
And if you want to call me assess
your call social services on me.
But if you're in my house, go and live by the rules of this team is very simple. Stop letting your children run the house and be the intimidators
they get old enough to call the assessor old enough to go into normal life. The reality of the fact and let them go through that for a weekend
is the reality of the matter. We need to understand these issues when it comes to us. Because we don't have good manners that we bring forward a generation that has the manners that I see out of most of our schibetta that I'm very worried about this man for the next generation. I'm very worried about the message that we're going to be giving to the world to the next generation that we're going to be showing that Muslims are some of the roughest artists you know, most ignorant most backwards most Batman gangsters on the planet. The reality of the matter. We need to we need to see this our children before it gets out of hand. Fix it in a lot of time.
Because you can get from good manners what you won't get for anything else don't reward that comes with having good manners is unequal or is is unequal by any other reward.
Now I'm going to break off into the group. So if you want to take
long because now we're for the next half an hour in sha Allah we'll talk about you know how to protect your

Most of these is speaking about the mannerism that we should have, you know, there is no better reminder,
this is realistically, the core of our lives. And if it's not the core of our lives, you'll find that our lives are not successful, nor are they fulfilling.
And this is one of the things we're discussing.
But before we do, I have to say deserve a credit to whoever gave me all of these things.

Running Man witness is causing some things that we can do to protect that child for reasons why the man because when the man is weak,
for reasons for cause of interesting, there are only four,
the four that I've seen that we suffer from the most from talking to Muslims and being around and having witness a man as myself as pleading for things that I think really, really caused us to have the worst weakness of the men and four ways to recover from that trauma. So if any of you don't have note taking material, please pull out your smartphone, typing these things out these four things can change your life. And
if you work on just find a way to take these four things down. Don't just think you're going to memorize them. It doesn't work like that. Knowledge is written down. Knowledge is written down as
the pen was the first thing he ever created. And knowledge he said he taught man by what?
By the pin by the name the entire school.
So please, knowledge is written down. You're not one of those monitoring encyclopedias.
When it comes to weakness of the man and all the things over us separate from Miss Eman? Does anybody know where it rests? Where is this home? Where's the home of the man the man has? Oh, by the way, in every human being
in the heart, the man's home is resting places in the heart. So when chaiken checking it man, it also means checking our heart. Our call is the thing that we must work on to effect the event. Because guess what if the heart is hard, the man doesn't penetrate. If the heart is not fertile, the men can hit it this fall off. So the heartbeats have soft fertile resting place where the demand. But the heart itself is something that we wrestle with all the time. Because an Arabic isn't called the parliament. Anybody know why?
What does the word mean? Doesn't mean just heart. The Prophet Lisa that was sent said that the heart gets his name from its frequent change. The word recall leads frequent change coming from the word meaning to change frequently. Changing frequently. The center said that the heart is like a feather resting at the bottom of a tree than the winter students that influence and influence it or even more so that the heart is like a feather in an open field. If you drop a feather in an open field, especially on the lights and thinking, we're almost getting blown around what would happen to that feather just gonna get blown all over the place and it's flips and flips and flips so the heart is
Flipping all the time, the probably is that Uncle Sam said that the heart flips quicker than a pot of ruin of rapidly boiling water. The way that rapidly boiling water is flipping and flipping and flipping the heart flips like this, the heart flips like this, in the hardest, not something we really understand very well. Also the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said, and it's very baffling. And
he said that the heart of every single human being all sons of Adam, their heart is between the two fingers of a monk in a manner that was madness in honor. We afraid that a lot of things, but they're not like opportunities. And Allah has the finger of Allah has the heart of every human being between these two fingers. And he can flip them whichever way he wishes. So he used to make the draw, yeah, but above
all, you changes the heart, steady my heart upon the dean. And we know that if a person wants to enter into Islam, they can only do so in a way that is open their breasts there's to do, their heart has been opened. That's the only way someone can enter into Islam and allies close the heart and the breast is Allah says that they're trying to climb into the sky, they'll never get there. Also properly. So that was the first thing to wake up in the morning. Toward the end of times, there will be people who wake up in the morning a believer, and they will go to bed in his minivan people wake up.
Because the heart has that capacity to flip and change look at
the other one is intent to
sell them, turn him into a lever. Forget about the story in the middle of all of
that, but Obama was a start in the Islam. And the properties are slamming traffic. And he may know Afro moraine. Oba brands, one of the two, I want to submit an economic model who became known as a vagina.
But Allah is often the guy that I want to get.
So the heart can be flipped like that. And that was one of the very first jobs I was taught. As a Muslim, I was taught to go out as the second day and during the day, then the first one was around,
say, increased volume, increase the knowledge, and the second one was young,
on the island, and I don't pray many satellites without making this before I sign off.
Because I realized guidance is a gift because I didn't have it at one point in my life, and I don't want to lose it. So whatever I can do to keep on that path, and
that a lot of comes in between every person and they're one that comes in between every person in their heart that the relationship that Allah has with his slaves, is very close, but a lot of times between each person in his heart meaning that Allah is the one who will prevent someone from evil when they tried to try to do the right thing and a lot comes in between that person in their heart and keeps the heart from doing that weird flipping flopping thing that lust is the heart. And according to the man, the The only people who will have a firm trial of the grave, which I don't think you realize the greatest travel you've ever faced in your life is the travel into into that
grave. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said the trial of the grave was like the fifth Gen, that the traveller grade is like the title of the Jedi and anyone who passes through that.
When you use a standard race, he used a wingman to be in godwits and his servants said to him,
You cry when you stand the break. But when you hear the verses of gentlemen ignore being recited you'll probably like this. When you stand in the Chronicle baby What happened? He said, The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam told me that the first station of Africa is his grave. And that if you pass this station, successfully, that everything that comes after it will be easy. But if you don't pass this nation successfully, nothing that comes after it will be easy. So it used to mean the green and the orange. I say that the only person who will pass that trial safely is someone who Allah has given is the competent Gentlemen, I steadfast heart, a heart that is steadfast and that is affirmed
that it doesn't feel shallow. Also, Allah says in Surah that no one will be saved on the Day of Judgment, unless they bring to Allah on what a monotonous verse is.
A clean lines, a clean heart that the only people saved on the Day of Judgment is someone who brings a lot of clean hearts. So this heart has to be checked and has to be cleansed. We don't have the opportunity. Like all of a sudden, when he was a child, they ripped his chest open, dangerous, ripped open his chest and then washed his guards. We don't have that type of pristine opportunity. We have to fight our heart because we have a shape bond running through us like our blood runs through our veins according to properly set up so that he has one as well.
estimators who comes is that also from human history from Kingston, you know, so we have that ship on wheels all the time. And that ship uninspiring, with all the tensions in northwest and it's it's a constant battle that we lose quite often. Also a lot of agenda says,
those whose hearts are hardened. So Allah says those whose hearts are hardened are doing that they're doing that if you have a heart of heart You don't. That's it.
So we have to protect this heart. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said, there's a piece of flesh in the body, that if it is well, on the budget will be well, but if it is diseased and corrupted, the rest of the body will be nice and corrupted. And indeed, this piece of flesh and it is the heart, the heart is in the seat of the man. So you gotta protect your heart and
also our system so that the promise of Paradise is for those who are brought a heart that is in repentance to Allah, that whoever brings a heart that is repentant to Allah, that Allah will save them and into them to gentleman, basically, that someone who brings a heart to Allah this repentance, will into into gentlemen. And as the small things that we do, is some things that very small beginning, we never know, there's one thing you have to remember, as a Muslim, you never know what's going to be getting into gentlemen, you can never take anything lightly or anything that you do by being in each trial or struggling you make the mistake of a Mars's origin, don't take it
lightly, cuz you never know what can be that thing. They choose an agenda when we speak it about US law.
There was once one man who was walking down the road and he saw a stick in the road. So stick crossing the road. And he said, I'm going to move this out of the way so that does not ever harm another Muslim. And because of this, I'm not even just for a stick in Chrome, don't worry about mistakes. And
same deal with this man was sayings from the Day of Judgment for the for the, for the, the treadle stick in the road, you remember the woman who gave the dog, a drink of water alive.
So you never know what it is that you do two things a lot of random favors in front of a lot.
So four things about what is the demand for things to to curate. The first reason for dope for the man witness apart is staying away from the book of Allah.
The messenger bots have lives and staying away from a loss book and the sooner is messenger sallallahu send them is the first thing that will cause you the decrease your email will fall when you stay away from the book of Allah. Because the book of Allah is the is the fuel for the event is the fuel. It's like the petrol that you put in the car, if you're a man is weak is because you put no pedal and then you would have not sat down and looked at the book of online or religion, you have not put the book of Allah in your life. And I'm not talking about just memorizing it's not because yes, you do get a hustle not for every single word that you recite from the Koran. But if you don't
understand any of it, then you can't get by, you can't live by and Allah did not say the brother was reading from pseudo from Khan. But if you go all the way back to the first episode for Soto for Khan, what is the first if anybody know every English
They're a blessing be the one who sent this one down to a slave for what reason?
so that it can be in to mankind a warning. So there can be a two man kind of warning, not a reservation, so they can be a demand kind of give us know, so that mankind can take some warning from it. So if you recite the book of art, you don't know what it's saying. I mean, it's just like, if you're speaking in a language that doesn't exist, and disappearing, speaking gibberish, and you wouldn't benefit from it, nor would I benefit from it, and you probably will never get invited back. But nevertheless, we need to take admission from the book of Allah azza wa jal, we need to hear it in our hearts, we need to understand it. We need to ponder upon its meanings, well by the prophet
Lisa used to sometimes there was an occasion where he was praying, startle family, he was praying the night prayer and he
said he's reciting one verse in the book of Allah, that y'all that my Lord gave your slaves if you punish them, or forgive them, it is a matter between you and them. And he recited that in stocks. And he did not move beyond that first the entire night. He stood there all night pondering that one first until it became so wet until his lap became but
we have to understand that the book of alarm as a gel is supposed to affect us. It's supposed to affect us. If you read a solo, like social
piano. So don't walk in here
Don't get fear inside of, you don't start trembling and shivering, and you don't have some ill effects because of it, then your heart is as hard as this thing, the prophet Lisa. And there was there was that it was so too
soon to walk in Central America.
he said this was made me brain before my time. He said these subroutines made me turn the break. Before it was my time he got in very early because of these, these
recording regulations from above.
So they don't affect us, we have a problem, we have a problem. For instance,
I was once
one of the great scholars of Medina shouldn't be at the water Island, telling us about the last verse revealed a lot. I mean, this verse is frightening. Anybody know the last verse revealing.
This is the last thing that was said to all of us. Fear at the day on which you will be returned to above fear that you will be returned to Allah and none of you will be paid unjustly. You have to understand that when the companion is used to recite this verse, they will cry and weep for hours of remembering that this is the last thing that a lot of dead would ever say to humanity. Did you know that that alone will never ever, ever, ever speak to humanity again, until the day you stand in front of him, and it's too late on that day. But the last thing he says, but that we only do Jonah feel alone, remember and fear the will to the return. If the book doesn't affect us like this, then
it's become just a it's just a it's just a book for us anymore. like India, sits on the shelf, we play with it, we read it, we decorate it. Even as I said, the day you begin to decorate your massage and your massages.
The day you begin to decorate and go with Crohn's and you massage it you got to be destroyed. Forget about why? Because that's all it is, is decoration. You're not taking benefit anymore. They used to come to the master diversity of
America. No, they came to have a business. And that business model was originally when they opened the book of Obama, they might have been written on the back of an animal skin. They wanted just to put it in their hearts that they can live by it. They didn't even care about collecting it until there was a point where they thought it would be lost. When they realized that if we don't collect it might be lost. That's when we started to collected before that didn't care why because they live this thing. They didn't mean the Messiah, they live this book. Do you know when the first renovation was made to the prophets machine, so nobody was sending them? Does anybody know what year is? The
first time they ever decided to fix anything in the master that the prophet SAW
any of you know,
around 82 to 90 years after the the first ever
first ever renovation remains in the profits machine, it was the same way he built it. Why? Because they have more important business to attend to, and more important business to attend to.
So I'm telling you right now, I don't know if our beloved prophet alayhi salatu salam, when seeing the condition of the Muslims would be standing up raising funds to build large minarets and gold domes and things of that nature yet they look good, but they're not doing us any good.
one thing that is a huge problem that we find is the abandonment of the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, abandoning the Sunnah is a huge problem. And unfortunately, we have a component of this so called a map. And when I say anyone who says
is important and this map that says that we can just disregard Listen, well, they just throw themselves out of this room. And I'm going to tell you what,
the Quran and the Sunnah are the same. They're the same in regards to the way they are the same. They're both wanting
to mention that the Prophet Lisa does not speak of his own desires. It has been a revelation revealed to him. Do you know how important the words of the prophets of a certain word, they were so important that even when it came to the swag, what did he say? He said, If I did not want to burden you, I would have commanded you to use this weapon for every song.
So why did he refrain from saying
anybody can think about this moment? Why did you afraid?
He didn't want to make hardship. But why did he refrain? Not just because
Didn't want to make arches, because he knew if he said it, it would be watching upon everybody. He knew that being said, use the wagon before the race a lot, it would have been mandatory and your salon would have been invalid without it. Because his words were law. Allah says,
obey, obey the messenger of love. So whenever the proper place to do something, they did it, they did it, there was once in another line. And I don't want to go off on a tangent, I might have to read through the last ones. But these are the most important, even though that's what they said after the salon when they were leaving the masjid of the Prophet. So citizens, some people have already gone outside, some people were milling about in the masjid. And in the past, I've taken one foot out, and the Prophet said
to Everybody sit down, even
said, the people who were outside, wherever they were, they sat down, the people who sat down and given a basket, I sat down in the door of the machine with one foot in one foot out, they did not take one step. Of course, they could have stepped back in and sat down and he said, okay, like we would have done, we would have milled around and come back into play. I've been told three, four or five, six times come in and sit down. But when he said sit down, they all sat down wherever they were, this was how heavily they took the commands of the Prophet. And they said I was also there was another companion trying to remember his name. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam told him, a
certain door of the masjid was for women don't use it. He said, After that they were lucky I never or any other domain, you'll never get to to this tool. If it wasn't for if it wasn't a woman, even like two, three in the morning, when there was nobody going to be around. They would not go through this door because at least I'm saying this don't come from this do it. I love it. I love it. When the Prophet lays that out,
before you sleep at night, recite What? Some hangover 33 times when handling,
over 34 times the amount one synapse To this day, but alone after this day, I never slept without saying this. The person who is telling you this to ask him not even on the Battle of Syfy not even a diversity. In our opinion, you know, the bad news feed was a huge fitness, it was a huge trial, it was a horrible night for it.
It said not even overnight of sci fi, that I sleep without reciting these things. Because what the prophet
gave them, as the law says whatever he gives you take it, whatever he tells you to stay away from stay away from it. So so not to them meant what it meant mandatory. It's unfortunate now that Superman has taken us down for us, is it? Is it? Is it really? Is it majorly sort
of or is this about boom? Is it kind of mukou?
I mean, we ask these kinds of questions. And it's, it's kind of important. The student is inseparable from the book of Allah. And I've had an opportunity to speak with some of our, you know, illustrious counterparts here in the UK. And otherwise, they say that we don't need this
is sufficient for us, when very clearly the profit
over the long run, let me never find anything of you. Let me never find any of you will know reclining on his cushions, saying to himself, the book of a lie sufficient for me, said never let me catch you doing this, of course, the agenda because
I told them this. I said forget about me. And according to all the verses and
twisted Ronnie, I said, I will give you one challenge. If you can do it, I will accept your image. So what does that I said Come with me in a room, close the door, turn off the lights. Let me open the Quran and turn into a page and you
can do as dark as the sun is the light. He know what that means. Without it, the Quran is dark, and you would never understand it, you will never understand it. We can't understand the book of our own understanding. You're talking about a finite mind trying to understand the words of ALLAH is
impossible, even the Buddha technique using even language will not take you there. How many of you grew up?
You grew up speaking.
As I talked about yesterday,
if I spoke to an ottoman said What does what
do I do?
What does that mean? doesn't mean anything if you didn't understand why the properly so that was sad what these things meant. I mean, you would have no idea what these words mean because this was not something you can get to through language. Language would only give you a scratch surface of a small percentage of the crop. And even that don't know what to do with it. Well, some of the probably is.
So these two things are inseparable and we need to know both of them. We need to know both of them.
The the tablet mentality. They said we were talking as soon as the Prophet lays out the same way we were talking, we hadn't been told that they were different. They had to be told by the companions that this is gone. And this is sooner because they will give it so much weight to both of them they had to be separated from them and to be separated for them.
Also studying this as part of number one, detachment from the book of Oman
and studying the secular sciences without grounding in the deen without grounding in the deity because the secular sciences if you don't know the deen of Allah, you don't know grammar will take you so far away from Islam, because you won't be able to grasp and wrap your mind around these ideas. And they will seem to you to be in contradiction to Islam, if you don't have a routine, so don't just stick your head in the books in school without sticking your head in the book of Allah azza wa jal Sharma number two, stay away from a an imagined university environment for too long, stay away from an environment that nourishes the mind for too long when we can even when we get
here, imagine your environment affects you so much. This is why the alumni of the past always emphasized in general, in general, that living in the land of this medievals was not becoming a Muslim. Why because the environment, the environment will affect you so much affect you so much, is why the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam emphasized that a true believer never goes and lives with the non Muslims unless it's for the sake
of Allah. But he makes his home with the movement with a movement with the believers. Because you stay away from an environment that nourishes the mind, you'll find your your your immense suffering because of it. Because as they say, You are a product of your environment, you are a part of the human mind, the way you're raised is going to be what you have produced.
Now, today is very hard to tell people to make a direct to Islamic environment. because number one, which one? What do you mean to go because all of them have flaws? I'm not saying there's no Muslim, let's say that. I'm just saying a nourishing environment is hard to find, even in Muslim countries, and emerging environments are defined even in all Muslim countries. And number two, how are you going to get that most of them will kick you out. Most of them will kick you out, you can just show that a Muslim and be like, I want to make sure to
put you back on the plane and send you back when painful. It's just the reality of the fact.
But this is something that emphasizes upon being in a nourishing environment.
I was asked by some students from Canada, what do we do about you know, what do you what do you? What is your recommendation for the for the toolbar in Canada, you know, we're suffering from all of the issues of the West. He said my advice claims that he can go somewhere with breakfast in the morning. Not saying that, that's my advice for all of you just to be aware of it wherever the environment that you're in. If you don't have a nursing demand environment, create one, guess what that first environment should be young. in your house, your house should be an environment that nourishes Imagine, if you have a wife and children, brothers, you need to be the amount of young you
need to be nourishing that environment in your home. If you're not leaving the law in your home, then your home is going to be destroyed. A family that prays together stays together. I'm not saying don't go to the masjid for jimana. But if you're not meeting some type of Salah in your home and live in circles and learn from leading up to the enemies once a day in your home, if you're not teaching your children the need of Allah, if you're not nourishing an environment for your wife to learn the deen of Allah and the book of Allah, your family is not 10 years old right now, if your home is not an environment for reducing the need of love, then you are not feeling your
responsibility. You are a shepherd sisters, your home is responsible for the weight, you're responsible for the children, you are the seat of the knowledge and they will first learn you're there first university, you need to instill in them the love of alarms agenda, the agenda, the respect for the son of the Prophet Lisa, that needs to come from you without running around with all kinds of riffraff. You know we come home and we have certain responsibilities. But you have to burden responsibility upon the next generation. The next generation of Islam is on your shoulders. Forget that in the Western world telling you you need to be on the streets all day long, because
there's nothing industry interest. There's nothing out there for you. There's nothing for destruction and people who are going to disrespect you and treat the property. Not saying that you can't go in the streets and learn to work but be cautious of the environment. Creating a home if you mean in the streets is causing your home to be
forgotten about or causing your home to suffer. That is around when
you don't like it, then you need to go and be challenging.
Because you can't sacrifice your home for a job or for an education.
Brothers need to do your job as well. You need to make sure your wife doesn't need to get out. Get out in words. If you need one job, find two jobs fine
Get out there and work as well Mars commanded you to do to be the man of the home. It is your job to go out and work to please a lot. And then a lot gives a risk event. But don't get this idea that you consider the message Don't be darling curry and making die and decode and you know walking around the streets and allows them to send a check in your in your mailbox doesn't work like that. There's a process that a lot goes through you work, keep records, that's just the way it goes. You You may pick it up and get
up, but you can't. You can't put that on your table and cook it up.
You need to do some other things. Number three, keep away from righteous complaints and we'll finish in in less than five minutes less than 10. Guaranteed.
nourishing, excuse me righteous companionship. You need to be careful who you be friends. You can't
say that you are the Dean of your friend, your companion. Your companions are what you're the leaner. Either you're wanting to be pulling them or they're going to be pulling you so be around people who make you remember Allah azza wa jal, if you find that you have friendships that are taking you away, cut those friendships off. Those friendships of Jesus peace be upon him is purported to have said something very beautiful in the in the Bible. It says that you would rather cut off the hand than have the whole body thrown into the fire or pluck out the eye rather than the whole body being thrown into the fire. Meaning that you would really get rid of something in your
life causing you to disobey Allah, then allow that to drag you into hellfire. I'll just really get rid of it. I don't care who it is or what it is or what it is becoming. If it's bringing me away from allies, and yet I need to cut it off. I need to cut it off and cut it off quickly as I can. Also the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said that
the good companion is like the seller of Musk, like seller musk. And one of my favorite things in his life is Oct.
But he said either you will buy something or you'll leave smelling good, because those are total shots that they will
be like, you know, 10 different beautiful fragrances.
So either you will buy something or uniques when it is good.
But the bad thing is like the blacksmith, you go to meet with him. You either gonna leave stinking or you're gonna burn one of the two things and happens no benefit from this. So the five designs are kind of different. Are they the symbolism? Or are they the blacksmith, you need to make your own decision number, also about the profit base. You know, the companions, he was their greatest friends. He was the greatest friend. He was someone who they went to for everything when they were hungry. They went to him even though they knew he was divorced from them. He knew they knew he was the poorest. But when they were hungry, they would go to his door when when when they needed an
answer they went to him when battles were fierce. They went to him because he would be the one that most firm when he died is
the companion said that we checked our hearts and found that there was a deep change. We looked at our hearts realized something had changed. And it was said about them they were described on the date of the Prophet peace be upon him died as she on a cold winter night when notion really best how they were described as sheep on a cold winter's night with notion. They felt the loss of the process
of a companion he was to everyone listening, even Omar Omar was the epitome of a man. If you wanted to know who our real man is. Go look at the life of
this was a man who wouldn't even champion directly trademark fear there are so much that if armor was on a road and Shannon was taking the same boat he would he would not face a lot of face to face. This is the same about who when every one of the other companions they introduced secretly they hit in the night left to three in the morning. Oh my wait until salado time when all the issues to sit under the shade of the Kaaba. And he went stood on the feet steps of the garden and looked at all of it said I know you. I know. I know you I know all of you and you know me. I am leaving to make a trip to the Prophet Lisa. in Medina, if you want your wives to be widows, your mothers to bereaved
and your children to become orphans.
And you walked out of the city and not a single person. This was a man but all the data properly is about the same left he lost it in lost. He was walking around with a sword and saying if any of you says
this is how great of a companion he was to them, look for companions that will bring you this type of benefit in your life.
And lastly, number four preoccupation with the yen. And on mindfulness of Africa when you get too trapped and it kills your demand man, this is a man soccer trust me or something like that. Right? When you all think
you're gonna get lost, you're going to get lost. Because this world is designed for that is designed to try to test you and to make you forget to forget what forget actually forget that this is another way of counting the profit
About the salon was describing
that indeed, it was a beautiful example for you leave in Canada you have
a feel for those who hope with a wall. And they remember the last day and they remember a lot.
So remember, the property is someone who remembers after that alone will make his affairs in order, his life will be in order alone, please reach between these two eyes and he will push you to come to him. But whoever is preoccupied with didn't get along will make their affairs in disarray. He will place poverty between them two eyes, and they don't get anything from this dunya except what are you waiting for them. So it's a lose lose situation. Forget about living yet, remember this one thing before we get to the end that
the Prophet makes sense and he was doomed was the slave of the knowledge that they do when you become a slave of money you are doing. He said the only thing that is sufficient that for you in this life is the caretaking of traveling. Whatever a traveler would move with, that's enough for you in this life, and also the proper lifestyle to spend one day with his companions. They passed my dead carcass in the road in the form the carcass did the form that had little ears. He picked up and he said to his companion, which one of you would buy this from me for 111 pound who would buy this for me from a bomb. They said yeah,
we wouldn't even take this and give it to us for free. Who wants this very sneaky for this is deformed anyway, properly. So that was that said know that Europe, Europe has more like as less light for this doesn't mean that you have to miss that a lot despises this, the more you despise this animal.
And if we're not that a lot of us will gently wield that no one even no one who disobeyed the law he failed to take a break. He wouldn't give it to no one if he if it wasn't the will, for giving it to them. So remember these things about doing it. Remember what it is about hustle and bustle.
And also the number one the daddy said that the enough time.
So this is when the dunya is like your shed, if you chase it, it will run You'll never catch it. But if you turn from it and chase towards Allah as within, like your shadow, we will have no choice but the following will have an interest with the following.
Now during weekends, we can spend the next couple minutes number one, you must remember the memorizing false, you must remember the memorizing the false you're not going to be a super Muslim everyday. Forget about it. It's not going to happen. There was a companion in Kampala, Congo, one day, he was walking in the streets of Medina. And Walker came to him said I bought a favorite from Africa. Please go that way run for me, I have become a hypocrites. He's like Why? He said, because when we were the prophets of the mighty man is so high. When he talks about jedna. It's like we can see we can smell it. When he talks about now we can feel the heat. But when I go home to my family,
you know, I forget about this. And I become preoccupied with the man just takes a plummet.
So they went to the Prophet, he laughed.
He said, If you were like you are with me all the time, you know, there's always a line on the line. I mean, you're the man is on the roof, and she can come to you into smashing.
But then after Ramadan, you know, you get on, you know, Xbox 360 watching the game, you know, he runs away. He said, If you were like you are with me all the time, then angels will leave the heavens come down to earth and come shake your hands and give you Marsha will give you glad tidings of gentlemen. It just doesn't work like that. He said, a man rises and falls. Because he matters, like the muscle you get to work on. muscles are not strong. If you don't work on them. You can't go to the gym and grab the biggest dumbbells in the place and start pumping iron and Kenny Are you gonna rip your arm your shoulders, and you're not going to ever work out again, you start with the
small things. So start with small acts of goodness, and then increase the job. Maybe you're going to say this week, I'm only going to pray the total cover portfolio to add to my unit and that's it, you'll find that that will come easy. You can add more and more and more. And
also, remember number one,
okay, number two, returning to the book have a lot of some of the properties that I've
given, you have to go back to the book of prophecy.
Number three, actually, before we go to number three in the title,
he summed up what the Muslim has to do with the bronze remedies. He said, Rahim Allah There are two main things you need to do with the Quran. The first is to move your heart from one of the things of this world to move into dwelling on the things in the ashram, forget about pondering upon this world all the time thinking about what the next thing you're going to buy, what you're going to sell what you need to make. Think about after that for a while, think about the Greeks think about the Day of Judgment. Think about gentlemen, think about now
Think about it for a while. He says then after that focus all of your heart on the ground and ponder upon his meanings and why did a little revealing? Like why did Allah give us this? And then try to understand something from every idea and apply that to your life in some way.
These will reveal I think we lost better here, but you can hear me Yeah, these are yet were revealed to cure the diseases of the heart. So apply them to the heart the same way you would apply SAP to a womb and you will find the Quran will benefit you in sha Allah to Allah. Number Number Number three, and number four, excuse me, there's five of them. Number three, seeking knowledge and circles of place where Allah seek knowledge. The Prophet alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever takes a path to knowledge alone will make the road agenda easy for them. Whoever takes a road seeking knowledge, Allah will make the path agenda easy for them. And it is knowledge of us is the arena the people who
have knowledge are the ones who feel the ones who feared There was once a companion, or one of the Saturday Excuse me, I think it was a I don't want to quote wrongly, that's not mistaken. One of our selves. He was crying one day to his beard became when he was asked why he said because I don't understand what this verse of the Quran means. Therefore, I think I have spent my entire life to become is because he didn't understand what one verse of the Quran meant he cried over itself. There was once I was one sitting with Abdullah Shanthi, who was the older brother Mohammed co star, and he was telling us that his father, who was the father of the early maps or the ambassador with a medium
in your brain and the lights, he said that he was once asked by a student to emphasize how sitting in the circles of knowledge increases one's taqwa. And even though that is true, that is true, the ship got very angry, very angry. He's like, I don't know why my father was getting angry. And then he said, you know what I was taught by my father who was taught by his father, that the circles of even though they bring about some tough work, they're mainly about theater of apartment. This is what they have become a movie about. He says, she's saying these things she has to tell us about this person and that person what this person's position is, and he said, if you want to find tough
Well, he said, tough. What did you find it in several hours in the morning for fudger, crying to Allah over your own sin. He said, that's where you find taqwa in the first row of the salon to fudger crying over your sins in front of all
four sisters in your home. crying over your own sense, is what brings them up top of Allah.
Number four, we're done. Okay, two minutes, we're done. Number four, or five, excuse me, for
pushing oneself to goodness and acts of righteousness pushing oneself, you got to push a little bit, you got to push a little bit. But be careful about how hard you push. The scholars say that when one feels their Eman, high, push yourself to do acts of goodness that are above what you would normally do. And when you feel your Eman, go low, restrict yourself to the fluoride and what you normally do, don't try to do anything extra on that day. You know, there's some days you're a man is not all there with you. There's not you're not in the mood today to jump up, read ninjas and get up in the middle of night and pray.
And then add Twitter and all this and that. So on those days, restrict yourself to what is your normal habit? Don't decrease, restrict yourself, what is your normal habit, don't try to increase it at all. Because then you will find your demand will come rise again. And you'll be able to increase the charm like that. Because if you push too hard, you're going to push yourself out of it. You're going to get burnout syndrome. If you say today I'm going to be a better Muslim. I'm going to go home and read. Every night, I'm going to get up and pray 30 record, I'm going to go pray every Sunday, I'm going to give soda I'm going to do this and that the third I'm going to fast every other
day. You know you're going to run out of energy by tomorrow. Tomorrow you'll be dead, you won't have anything else left. So you have to pace yourself in sha Allah Tada. And lastly, remember death often remembered death of the profits of mobile audio seldom said remember often the destroyer of all pleasure. Remember, often the destroyer of all pleasure. And also the profit later that was seldom used to always tell his companions to remember death. And to remember the grief. He used to save his companions a lot secretly to the law from the trials of the greed not only
seek refuge from that, remember the grave remember that's where you want it to be. If you ever want a good reminder, if you ever want a good reminder, let me challenge all of you to something sisters. This is not for you chama Forgive me. There's something but brothers, if you ever want a good reminder, if you hear what's going to happen.
Do yourself a favor, before the denials and go find out where they're going to bury this guy or this woman and get down in that grief. Lay down on the ground. Turn yourself on your right side and look up and remember that that will be the last thing that you will ever take of this life and one day it is a maturity guaranteed unless you die in a fire and come to non existence or you get thrown in the ocean and sharks eat you or something of that nature. That is a guaranteed that you
We'll go there,
you will be there. So you need to get used to that. Trust me, you do that for a minute. Your whole outlook on this journey changes, you'll get angry and disgusted with everything that you possess, and you will try your best to increase your good deeds because you sit there, it becomes real, it becomes real. I did that one time. So
I did that one time. And as I was laying there, the worm started coming out inside of me, there was worms that were already coming out from the side of the green, I jumped out. So that's a
little bit more technical in Java. But yeah, it becomes real upon you just sit on that and just throw some dirt on top of yourself. You know, the Senate used to do this the companion, they would go dig graves just to get in them. They will go dig graves themselves just to lay in it. Or if there was somebody about to be buried, they would lay in that grave first, and realize that this is the reality. This is where I will be one day. It's a good, effective, good reminder. One other thing all of you have a smartphone. I'll give you one thing that'll help change your life. set a reminder notification at a certain time every day when you know that you'll be at a point where you can think
and put a reminder that says remembered death. Remember that you're going to do it five times a day No problem, but at least set one reminder every single day that says remember death. When you get that you even find sometimes that you'll be thinking of some nonsense in your head and you'll get that reminder and you stop, you'll stop it will really affect and check you in time. So hopefully today inshallah I have given you some encouragement to understand how important your character is you're a flop how you behavior people don't pass people without smiling, stop having a frown and scowl on your face all the time like the world is coming down around you. Treat people kindly Be
gentle with people have mercy upon people, even as this is said and soda for fun. Even if someone comes to you ignorantly saying all kinds of nonsense. What is it say in that verse? What is the response that we should have?
with peace, respond to them with words that respond with words and words of peace. So we should have good manners in sha Allah. And when you feel your human being weak, remember that if your man is weak, it's because something that you've done, your Eman is weak because something you've done or you've not done. So find out what it is and try to increase that and charmante Island, because the demand is the fuel for the soul. The soul runs out a few then it goes into the Mercia and the sins and all of these other things.
So in sha Allah, Allah, if anything I have said has benefited you, you know when you praise for its Allah, because Allah says Allah,
All praise belongs to you, and you praise Him alone. If I have said anything incorrect, or that offended you or harmed you or that was blatantly wrong, then it's because I'm an ignorant man who has very little knowledge. And please forgive me and correct me when you see fit, be fit? Does
with a question? Yes. The sisters will have questions now.
Please ask your questions, write down the scripts to be provided to your right side. And for this lecture, if they want to display the end they can do so. Okay, this was appropriate for your hand, right? There's a reason why I don't allow a hand raising questions and a lot of my lectures because it turns into an argument when you allow people to raise their hand. So if you have a proper question, you can raise your hand. But if you start arguing
so you have a question, send it up if you want to write it. So right to pass it to the person on the right is it up not taking up
Some things that I can recommend to help
lead to tremendous
literature on matters. Unfortunately, this is not enough out there. But there is a good book that is written called the two commandments
published by Don Saran. And it's a collection of stories and ideas and principles. I recommend every book for everybody.
But if you want like a proper, you know, English book that can teach you manners, you have the book of Mughal Muslim.
describing the prophets I send them in character manners and things of that nature. And there's a little called the book commands just just go to Nordstrom publications, just right here in Birmingham in the UK, go to their website
and just do a search the title of
have actually mentioned a lot of tsunami tsunami.
This is very good Alhamdulillah May Allah bless you
To be a good Muslim
Europeans, more or less from
nearly 6000 Muslims in

mostly, and awareness
everywhere in our district working on our business, or our workplace, or university. I think this is the US the
be, yeah, I mean pay
manage, do bring about the best of 100% What are our, that's, that's indirect, or indirect damage should also be coupled with direct damage, which is conveying the message but our managers must deal with it. But that's, that's a whole nother topic that's beyond this, but we shouldn't have been managing the property
But he also shared that with, with with,
with calling people who want to
be successful, and he told us
so both of them must be coupled together.
But one thing we cannot be fooled about thinking that everybody's gonna
if we wait around for every single Muslim will be waiting around 2000 people 999 is
so we need to take the people that are ready to wish that are ready to get involved in Islamic work that are ready to get involved in dow and we can work with them. Even if that group is small or small, we need to work with all of them. Because not everybody's gonna come on board we got our own ideas is that this one or that one because of this? Third, so we have to work with who's willing to work and inshallah Allah, Allah will take the results, because the love isn't the quantity. He wants quality. The quantity of Muslim doesn't matter. When they were invited. They were very little. But the quality was so pristine that Allah, angels from heaven to fight. And when the Prophet alayhi
salaatu wa Salaam was asked by jury about what do you think of the people who attended by the way, he said they were the best of Muslims, they were the best of Muslims that ever existed. So Tibetan excellence and Buddha
to help you with the best of angels that aligns
them literally like the Battle of
The battle about money, they brag about the numbers, and we have so many today we can't be destroyed. A lot proved that I don't need your numbers. I need your dedication and policy. So we have to work on quality, encouraging the Muslims to qualify themselves and see the ones that have equality and go forward with them.
Okay, good question actually.
What have you said many times there is a misconception that performance and character are the same thing. For example, because a person wears a hijab, or he keeps a beard does not mean he or she is a good character. Very true. Nice. You cannot judge a book by its cover that's 100% this can be very difficult when looking for a marriage partner. How do we as a single you differentiate between digital proposals, character and performance? You see we live in a time now. Where just because someone says Muslim doesn't mean they can necessarily be trusted. And that's just a realistic fact I can't play around with this view. We live in a time where truth is false false is true. The latter
is known as the truth when the truth is known as the lie of the internet is done with the scholar the scholar is known as the ignorant. If a brother comes to me, Masha Allah, I've just met a few brothers here that I would say are good brothers. I know nothing about them, but good. And that's all I can say about them. But when I married my daughter to them she was of age to be married. No, I would not use the money. Probably not what I trust you with my children. I don't know. Why because you haven't been tested. We live in a time now where our competitors need to be tested. People need to be tested, people need to be brought to account. I need to know not only who this person is when
it comes to me the same when it comes to me. My dog is wired, so he has his manners look good on the outside, guess what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna go find people who know this man. And I'm gonna ask them what do you know? What do you know if in 345 10 of the men fighting fine, because then I read something
called a consensus of his companions who can say something about him. I want to know how do you know
You know, they're just kind of know him, or have you been to them? How do you know him? How do you know about him?
So you're going to find out about him. And for me, he needs to live with me for a few weeks, you're going to be at my house watching morning.
Because if you can't fake it in front of me for three weeks, just happen. You know, I'm gonna figure before it takes one unknown.
I'm gonna put into the test.
Because one thing I will tell you right now, I don't care if he's a doctor as a PhD as a BMW, and Audi isn't that if he has no property, he will not take care of my daughter. And I will not trust him. But with the with the he will always take care of her even if Allah blesses him, yes, he blesses him to be bought, he will take care of my daughter, and she will,
because he will sacrifice. But if he's a PhD doctor, and he's stingy with his money, he might have a million dollars in the bank, and you won't even give my daughter proper clothes away. I've seen it too many times. Don't be fooled by what presents itself in front of you. Even the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said that when talking about witnesses, he said that they need to be able to come to me about a case and the one that talks the best may be the one that encourages me upon it, but if he does, so, if he does, so if he fools me to give a judgement for him, let him take his seat in January. So we need to be careful not to try the people that you want to get married to. And don't
do it, you know, don't do it, you know, the roundabout way, you know, Facebook chat, Skype chat, because we know how to put on
the front. And brothers Don't be fooled by the system with a big smile and this and that. You know, that's why it's
because these, these beautiful smiles can be cute will be loss will be falling over ourselves, this wildlife system to protect their modesty is well because we're fools when when we see a beautiful woman. Trust me, everything goes out the window, any any sense of reason that we have just got thrown under the bus.
system, brothers and brothers.
What are your tips to constantly wake up before father especially during summertime, when it comes at like 245 I think it's by just coming in at like three at
You know, there are a number of things that you can do to make sure that you get a function one of them is to remember the avocado sleeping. One of the greatest ways to wake up from fudger is to remember that kind of sleeping remember the etiquette of sleeping. The problem is that I had a routine before going to bed is to wipe his bed, he used to blow into his hands. Besides the last few verses of the Quran wiping over his body, he's a
he's a major draw for sleeping. And then you sleep. When you do that, you'll find that a lot of general wake it up without the need of a mom, you won't even need a long, he will snap up even if you've only been there for 20 minutes, you will just back up. When you forget a lot before sleeping, don't think you're going to wake up alarm might not help you why because as soon as that one goes off a thumbs up in your ear, you don't hear anything, he tells you. You got five minutes, all this and that. And the other. Also other tips you can have is you know, if you have an alarm, my recommendation is don't put an alarm clock beside you that that's the dumbest idea everybody ever
came up with because you want to reach out and touch it without even being awake.
Put it across the room and things of that nature. This is the alarm clock that I'm getting, it's an alarm that you have to actually get out of bed and step on it to make it go off. You have to put weight on. So you know, for me that's a beautiful thing. Because you see that you step on it you're already up. So So things that are nature, one of the greatest things you can do is remember that God was sleeping, and you'll have the energy to get up. Also make sure you go to bed in a proper time. You know, no, no. All day and then go to bed to expect any. It's gonna be tough. But if you inshallah to Allah,
that Allah will wake you up.
Can you please elaborate one advisement we get about learning? Yeah, I didn't say forget about. I said forget about is really important in life don't give it a priority over everything else. Are we supposed to maintain the balance for the sake of Allah and the image of it in Islam? Yes, a lot that we tell our students to be to be poor, to be risky. That is not the way it works. But one thing that you cannot do is allow this video to have a prominent place in your life. That's what people don't understand. People think that that they forget about Doom yet that they're going to be poor. The poor alar as well as lowering the risk for every single human being has written a risk for every
single human being 50,000 years before you created them. And only he can increase when he's already written to certain certain things, Dragon chains, things of that nature.
But for sure, you're not going to get any more than what a law wants me to get you not going to get any less, you're not going to get anything less than what you've been written. If Allah has written for you to be poor, I don't care if you go to school to get four PhDs, you will be bored. It's just the reality of the matter.
Is does what everybody knows in this other world, whatever is meant to come to you or not passion, whatever is meant to passion will never come to you. The problem is that the entire world wanted to harm you, and they all gathered against you to harm you. And for you, then good, only good will come to you. And if the whole world came together to try to save you, and do good for you, and allow more time for you, none of that would save you from Allah. So we have to remember that it doesn't mean that we cannot ask a lot as these commanders.
No, no, it does not mean these things. Even the companion I think it was
one of the containers as a properly set up. But there's not one of us that doesn't like good things. We like nice clothes. I like nice clothes. I like those made them have been all the time that the costs are pretty big. I buy after that it costs way too much money. There's certain things that I don't like. And there's nothing wrong with that, because the population that we're serving said a lot is beautiful. He loves beauty. Because one thing I can tell you about the population after
he was born, he had patches on his his as well, so many patches that he'd become afraid to go back to the patch maker he so he put his own sandal together. But you will never find it for me one ad that says he was dirty. That says his clothes were dirty, and says his beard wasn't kept clean comb it down to there was dripping off on him that his teeth weren't white. They didn't use them as well. He knew how to present himself property of man, even a fan of mine never wore the same film twice. He would never wear the same garment twice Why? It's not out of arrogance, he would wear it but people think it was arrogance though he could afford to wear so many. But he would wear one see
somebody that didn't have one as good as him, take it off his back and give it to that man. And then he would have to buy another one to wear the next day. But he could afford to do that. So even within your capacity, in any capacity this way, the prophet said don't look at those who are above you. Look at those who are below you because then you become thankful for what Allah has given you. When you look at those things, you become
ungrateful for what Allah has given you. And you become envious. You end up being someone who has cousin which we asked a lot at the very end of the bronto to protect us from so don't give the people for what they resist.
envy them for their Deen and within for their mineralization in the book of Allah, Allah, their morals their character has given them no problem. If a lot hasn't given you, no problem. But it doesn't mean that you can have abundance. It doesn't mean you can't wear a nice suit, have a nice watch, have some nice shoes on it around your loved one said it very beautifully that that asset ism is not to not possess anything of this world is that nothing of this world possesses you it's not that you don't own things. It's don't don't let them own you. If Allah gives you a nice watch my show but I like his watches. If I hit him with a break today, guess what?
If I take it off,
that's just wasn't meant for me. That's the way the attitude is.
If Allah gives you a million dollars, Mashallah
my Raji for tomorrow said about me, it wasn't meant for me it was meant for that person, just the reality of this month.
effectively, you could make
we know why.
that when I'm not saying to make it, that way, you have to understand the context. I said this was upsetting for a very long time about making land, the land.
I myself live in the West. So I'd be quite easy
to say that it's haram to live in the woods. But one thing I am of the opinion of that if you're not doing that, like here, you don't need to be if you're not doing data, you don't need to be you can give just for the purposes. This is and you came from a Muslim man and unfortunately have to say the truth is not okay. It's not permissible, not allow the Prophet Lisa.
Opposition and die off the yoke of Israel. It's only notice none of the next but if you take advantage, get involved in sharing the message with the people get involved and get involved in sharing this land with people
But if you come here just yet, just yet, this is something that is not okay. It's not okay.
It's not permissible to make, especially if you come from a land where the that is called opening costumes or openly praying, there's massages everywhere. Islam is known as the religion of the land, it's not permissible to make from that land for any reason other than,
you know, mine is not my words, it's not my statements. It's the statements of people much, much greater than me. So yes, we need to be sharing the message. And we can call this we can call this local for, for the simple fact that there is no difference in Islam, there's only love Islam, and there is no, there's no middle ground, there's no door, we don't know you, if it doesn't exist like that, if it's not the language is land talking is permanent, it is the land of the football. That's just the reality of the fact that is cool for a lazy man. And there's no middle between those videos. And there are people who are not here with us, this is just the reality, doesn't get any
third portion except for animal content and things like that. But they don't want to condemn that, indeed, they are disputing this as well, those who call himself the Son of a lot, or
one of three.
So you know, we have to define that as well, but doesn't mean that we write them off. Because it is believer is only a potential investment. There are potentials, they are not getting Muslim with a potential Muslim. Now, if they you've given them that permission sign, they rejected it, then they're out there. But there is no such thing as people who are just kind of in the middle, they're not really interested in nonsense. So hope that makes some sense.
Sometimes as a Muslim, it's hard to feel a connection with a lot. If you're good as a convert. Did you feel something positive in your heart over time? And can we use our time feel the same and become better people?
It's hard for me to look at myself as a dreamer. Now, you know, I have to really struggle hard for 15 years now. And I was only, you know, I was I was only 18. And only a few years where I didn't even know what the hell I was doing.
Okay, that I was not Muslim. But that good feeling that comes in your heart is the feeling of connection with
Allah says in the Quran, in dealing with the remembrance of Allah, we will find the rest, when you truly remember. And you remember a lot of favorable manner, we should always remember a lot we should always, always, always remember a lot of favorable manner. Why? Because in a hurry to see the
words of the novel properly, so that I am as my slave perceives me, I am as my slave precedes me, if he perceives good of me, he will find good from me, if he sees him for me that that's what he finds. So we should have a favorable opinion about a lot of agenda. And this is part of the correct aqeedah of the Muslim is to always have a favorable opinion about
that my mother is someone who's concerned about me, if you ever think that a lot has forgotten about you than you are getting, and I just have to tell you like that, so you think for a minute, you're in need, because if you still bring Allah hasn't forgotten about you, if you still live and your heart beats, Allah has not forgotten about you. So you need to understand that it is not about that forgets us, it's us to forget a lot. And sometimes that relationship is struggling to the point where we have to do a lot to get it back, we have to make this available for so long, that relationship is so muddled, that you're going to have to do a lot to fix this part to have a proper
connection with that again, but it's not impossible, because the door
is a door that a lot has been opened and it cannot be closed by any human being the only people that can close it are people going to share openly or if you're about to die, or the sun in the data and all that nature but that door
opened and it cannot be such a thing. So repent to Allah This is the first step to purifying your relationship and what is telling you that you haven't made terrible for the sins you have committed don't expect to have a good relationship with the one who sent things you need to fix what you have broken and then inshallah orphan establishing a better link with a
It's a simple question that you mentioned that, that I like beautiful clothes. So how do I define beauty? Well, beauty again from human beings in the eyes of the eyes of the beholder. For me, I like as well. They are nice. They have good fabric, there's certain fabrics
floating in the sky, and it's just a reality. In fact,
I like my suits. For the one sometimes they'll say stuff.
I like a nice suit three pieces of electronic data every once in a while.
This is something that is not addressed in the body anymore.
way so much that it's more prominent our countries you go to some of our Western countries is very hard to
But nevertheless, I like beautiful clothes meaning I like clothes that look nice. look nice on me the look appropriate. But they have to be appropriate to have to be according to the standards of modesty. Assistant, your clothes must be the standard of monasteries and doesn't mean you can't look good. But the person who's supposed to look good voice you're supposed to look good for you, as you should ask yourself system before what can I do in the morning? Look in the mirror and say, does what I'm wearing right now please alarm
does it please can I stand in front of a lie and so on like this. And if you can't, then it's not appropriate for you to leave your house like this. For brothers Same way, you have a dress and go with condoms and you need to abide by and it's almost the same as the sisters. except you're allowed to wear often and your your your aura is only between above your navel to below your knees. That's pretty much it. But what I mean by beauties, we like nice things without extravagance. I like my shoes. I like my shoes, I went around all the time around the world. So I try to wear shoes that are comfortable. And sometimes I will spend a little bit more for a nice comfortable pair of shoes than
shoes are going to destroy my back and feet. But what I spend $600 on a pair of shoes, that's just a bit extravagant. I can I can be fooled by five pays for that for that matter of six days. So it's all about in moderation, everything Islam is about moderation. You're not allowed to be extreme in anything in Islam not allowed to be extreme in anything, even in worshipping Allah as is not allowed to be extreme. Not about the extreme. You know, how do I know there were some people who said
that they would pray all night and never sleep that they were stronger than the Prophet.
companions, they would not pray or they would not get up or they would not sleep they would pray all night that they would fast every day and they would never get married and properly set up.
So I've heard with someone who said, he said I pray some of the night I sleep some of the night. I fast and I break my fast and I get married and whoever doesn't follow us and release them. It means not from me. So we can't be extreme in anything. Don't be an extremist. Be realistic, be frugal, be moderate and inshallah to
