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

Miss mill near

00:00:04--> 00:00:06

me

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

and Alhamdulillah

00:00:12--> 00:00:21

Alhamdulillah Hera belisle amin wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While he was happy as main woman will illuma Dean

00:00:22--> 00:00:29

shadow en la ilaha illallah wa hula Sherry Kala qua shadow anna Muhammadan, Abu rasuluh Emma bed,

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

I have a very short amount of time because somebody else is supposed to lecture at seven and I don't cut into anyone's time as I would not like them to cut into my time. So I'm going to be very short which my intention was to be very short and sweet inshallah tada as a continuation of what I said today, at Juma in sha Allah, I hope you got the message of what I was trying to get across about the fact that we need to do some action

00:00:54--> 00:01:21

and inshallah to Allah, we will be finishing up with that tomorrow as well. But now I want to give you a little bit of a backup of the mind frame that we need to have when we begin to do this action. Because if you agree with me that we need to do something, which if you don't agree with me with those ads, that sort of stuff, then I suggest in Sharla, you go back and read them over and over again. Because it's overwhelmingly clear that a lot of find what the Allah is asking us to make effort for him.

00:01:22--> 00:01:56

But in order to do that, we also have to have to understand we have to have the right thought process when we're going forward to begin to work for a loss of Hanover with Ireland. And I also want to answer the second half of the draw that I was speaking to you about because today I answered a lahoma and soon, Islamorada muslimeen but I did not answer. Why is there? Oh Allah give dignity and the human soul? Why is the Islamic Muslim dignity to Islam and the Muslims? So I'm going to answer all of that inshallah to Allah in the next few moments.

00:01:59--> 00:02:28

And I begin by asking us, all of us, myself included, to ask ourselves a question, we need to ask ourselves, who are we trying to please, with our life, the way you live right now the things that you do, the habits that you have, the tendencies that you have, the way you think, the way you act, the way you live your life? Who are you trying to please? in your life?

00:02:29--> 00:02:51

Because easily we can say, I'm trying to please Allah. But I want us to really think about that. Who are we trying to please in our life? Whose approval are we trying to get by the things that we do in our life, who it is that we look up to who it is that we're trying to impress? A lot of these things fit into the answer of how we get is that

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

and this is something I want to tell you very clearly.

00:02:59--> 00:02:59

That is

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

for the Muslim,

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala has already given it to you.

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

He's already given it to you.

00:03:11--> 00:03:19

And only you and me, and us can decide to let it go away.

00:03:20--> 00:03:20

That's it.

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

Because the is the,

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

of the human being.

00:03:28--> 00:03:51

In the definitely there is a Muslim, in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is Islam. This is the dignity of the Muslim Islam. This is your dignity, and your only dignity before Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if you're trying to gain dignity from anyone else,

00:03:52--> 00:04:02

this is the problem. And this is a majority of the problem of why we face the condition that Islam and Muslims are in today. Because

00:04:04--> 00:04:08

of whom it is we're trying to please home it is we're trying to impress.

00:04:10--> 00:04:21

And I'm going to tell you why. Because also some of them said it clearly that this is our problem. 1400 years ago, he told us that this was the problem that we are facing right now.

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

And 2010 throughout the world

00:04:26--> 00:04:31

and we don't have as a right now, your rights because we have given it up.

00:04:34--> 00:04:57

There is a Muslim is his Islam, like I told you, this is our dignity and Allah Subhana Allah gives it to us and he's the only one who can give you is a you can get dignity from anywhere else. When we try to get our dignity from any other source than Allah subhanho wa Taala either we go astray

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

because Allah Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

Virgil says in his Koran, that He gives dignity to whomever he wishes, and he gets humiliation, to whomsoever He wishes. So dignity

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

and humiliation

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

is in the hands of a loss of Hannah who went to Ireland. He says this in his book.

00:05:25--> 00:05:37

But the criteria for that is your thought process, how you think, whom you're trying to impress who it is that you're trying to look up to, and who it is you're trying to dignify in your actions.

00:05:38--> 00:05:56

And let me tell you, this is our motto salsa that said them gave us the problem with the solution back to back, and this is my problem, and your problem and all of our problem. And if we can fix this one thing, we begin to make a major step in the direction of

00:05:57--> 00:06:11

dopamine only been there he was older, he went to jail defensibility law he became widely common for second we make a major step in this direction. Also sobre la jolla was settled a month ago, a lot of Arabic for times sake. He said, What is two means in English,

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

that whosoever seeks to be pleasing

00:06:17--> 00:06:25

to people, while it is at the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala Ireland, that Allah would be displeased with them.

00:06:26--> 00:06:58

Again, let me repeat, Whosoever seeks to be pleasing to human beings at the displeasure of a law. That means that he or she does things in their life, in order for people to like them. In order for people to accept them. In order for people to respect them. They'll do things that they know a lot does not like. And we're all guilty of this including me. We're guilty of playing the property in front of the people.

00:07:00--> 00:07:06

Or they won't do things that they know a loss of Hannah who wants to Allah has commanded them to do

00:07:07--> 00:07:11

in front of the people, so that the people will like them.

00:07:13--> 00:07:49

This is what we do. This is our one of our biggest gifts is that we do things in front of people so that like us, we shave off pieces of our Deen. In order for people to accept this we don't want to look too extreme. We don't want to look too backwards. We don't want to look too crazy. You don't want to stick out. I don't want to stick out men is what you the what I've heard. I don't want to be sticking out so that I can become a target and people can look at me and say I'm crazy. This is not they'll say this is not the way to do our brother to look crazy you extreme men

00:07:50--> 00:08:04

run around with that big beard in the dress on all day long. And I see you praying all in the in the airport and in the malls and doing all this crazy stuff. Man. This is extreme. This is an extreme understanding. This is 2010 man that'll get you locked up

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

in mind,

00:08:07--> 00:08:08

but the point is,

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

the point

00:08:13--> 00:08:19

is Who am I trying to please? The people? What can the people give me? What can they give me?

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

What can you do for me?

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

nothing except maybe make me

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

because what Allah Subhana Allah wants to happen to me is going to happen to me without you or with you.

00:08:34--> 00:08:40

On the day of judgment, I can't come running to you and be like, yeah, you remember when I did all those things for you? Why don't you go tell a lot that I did them for you.

00:08:42--> 00:08:50

That person is gonna be like me, you out of your mind even shape on on that day. Even as Satan on that day when people will start blaming him

00:08:51--> 00:09:01

and saying shaytaan made me do it man. The devil made me do it. Shake I will say Oh, buddy. No, sir. All I did was calling you all I did was

00:09:02--> 00:09:06

in your ear. You did it on your own. Therefore today,

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

I'm free of everything that you do.

00:09:12--> 00:09:27

So, also, Sara Selim said that whomsoever seeks to be pleasing to men and mankind, at the displeasure of Allah, not only will allow become displeased with you, He will make the people become displeased with you.

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

Allah will make sure that not only he's angry with you, with the people won't even like you. He won't give you dignity and he will not allow the people to dignify you. Allah has made a promise that he will not allow you to get dignity by seeking it from his creation, because he's the owner of dignity. And if you don't seek it from him, you can't get it. This is why we are in this condition. We began to get in this degradative

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

State in our fall began when we started to become trying to be pleasing to people look at your history.

00:10:09--> 00:10:21

Look at our history. This is when it happened. When we lost sight of the real point of everything that we do is for Allah alone. Regardless of what the people think.

00:10:23--> 00:10:36

This is why we're in this situation, nobody will respect you like this. I don't care how much of your dean you shave off, and sometimes literally shave off or take off. Or don't do, or do

00:10:37--> 00:10:50

it decide to go to work, and just, I need this job and I don't want people to think I'm crazy, you know, so I take off the hijab. It's not that serious. A lot knows when my heart I've even had some sisters Tell me I'll wear my hijab and my heart's

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

kind of luck.

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

Why don't you see that on X ray?

00:10:58--> 00:11:21

I had some brothers, you know, you know, I shaved my beard because you know, you don't want to be running around with a beard these days. Man. You look crazy, man. Nobody's gonna hire you. When it comes time for the Christmas party at work. Yeah, I'm gonna go I didn't drink you know, but I go I want to. I want to see normal, it actually you fool yourself into thinking that you're going to help them. You'll see that you know, Muslims are like everybody else.

00:11:22--> 00:11:35

I don't want to be like them. Everybody else. Don't put me in that bucket say you're like everybody else. Because no matter what you do, they never respect you. They'll still they may say that person's okay. Still a Muslim?

00:11:36--> 00:11:46

Still Muslim? still an atom still one of those crazy people? How do I know this? You say unusually Are you being extreme in your ideologies, man. This is a promise of a law.

00:11:48--> 00:11:57

A loss of I know what that is says in the Quran. That they will never be pleased with you. Until

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

you become like them.

00:12:02--> 00:12:19

They will never be pleased with you till you become one of them. Until you leave your deen completely and become one of them. Or you shave off so much of your deen that Allah does not even recognize you anymore as a Muslim. When they might like you. You can call yourself a Muslim all you want.

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

You can call yourself a Muslim all I want

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

doesn't mean that you can be one a non Muslim get around, call himself a Muslim. They don't do the actions of a Muslim.

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

It's a whole different ball of wax.

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

I could run around calling myself a

00:12:36--> 00:12:53

chicken all day long. I don't care how much I believe it. I guarantee you I won't get none of you to believe it. This is the game that we play with a law saying that we're Muslim. And we don't do the actions of a Muslim Muslim. The word Muslim is a verb means to do Islam.

00:12:54--> 00:13:04

So you never get the dignity this way brothers and sisters and you will end up in this condition that we're in now. No one respects Islam. No one respects Muslims.

00:13:05--> 00:13:08

Because we can't even respect ourselves.

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

We don't even respect ourselves.

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

the dignity of the Muslim is

00:13:16--> 00:13:39

woman afternoon, call me mandai Lola y mila solly her work call in any minute muslimeen This is the dignity of a Muslim that he has a call to Allah as he is commanded and he's adore have good actions. And he says to the people plainly and clearly without a doubt Yes, I'm Muslim.

00:13:41--> 00:13:53

All of us know that point when we've been asked Are you are you Muslim? Or what religion are you and you feel that little tingling in your heart? You don't want to just go Yeah, Muslim. Oh, man.

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

I get asked me to help men we will get along just fine.

00:13:59--> 00:14:09

But Allah says if they ask you that what follows in any manner? muslimeen surely I'm a Muslim? How about you? You're not a Muslim? Oh, man, I feel sorry for you.

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

Muslims are the best people on the planet, you know.

00:14:14--> 00:14:27

We could be we have the we have the potential to be if we gain our understanding back and we realize who we are. That being a Muslim is your dignity. Being a Muslim makes you better than anything that Allah created.

00:14:29--> 00:14:36

It makes you better than anything that Allah subhanho wa Taala created, even the angels.

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

When you don't live Islam, when you are not acting as a Muslim, when you are not a Muslim, you go from being the best of the last creation very quickly. There is no sliding scale. You go from the best of luck creation, to the worst of a loss creation even worse than cows then catalog loss is even worse than that men

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

mass will put you out to pasture somewhere.

00:15:03--> 00:15:15

This is what I'm not just giving you some foolishness. I'm telling you what Allah and His Messenger has said about this issue. And it's the reason why we're in the predicament that we're in now the brothers and sisters

00:15:18--> 00:15:21

but there is hope, plenty of hope.

00:15:23--> 00:15:37

They say that when you lose hope you lose everything. When you give up hope you've lost everything. So there's always hope when you have hope you have everything then when you have hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah

00:15:39--> 00:15:51

you have everything then you have everything that you could ever possibly need. I don't care who likes me, I don't care who respects me. If I have favorite with a loss upon Oh, what the hell Oh man, forget you.

00:15:52--> 00:16:07

Seriously, I don't need you to give me my dignity. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given it to me. Because on the flip side of this are also some of our holiday was seldom said, But whosoever seeks to be pleasing to Allah.

00:16:09--> 00:16:29

Even if it's at the displeasure of the people, that means I do what a lot likes. I don't care who likes it. I don't care if my boss doesn't like it. I don't care if my neighbors don't like it. I don't care if my family doesn't like it. I don't care if my wife doesn't like it. I don't care if my parents don't like it.

00:16:30--> 00:16:52

I don't care who doesn't like it. I do what a lot likes, and nothing else. Also, Saba Selim said about this person, that when they seek the pleasure of Allah, even if it's at the displeasure of people, that not only would Allah become pleased with them, he would make the people pleased with them.

00:16:54--> 00:17:08

He would make and force the people to be pleased with them. And this is the promise of our rossell sobre la la he was sending them and we know also Sarah send them spoke nothing but the truth.

00:17:09--> 00:17:27

So also sell or sell in the saying that if you seek to be pleasing to Allah, that means I don't care who doesn't like the fact that it's time for me to make sell. I don't care what you got going on. I don't care if it's time for whatever it is, else is going on. It's time for me to pray.

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

I'm praying, dropping everything. And I'm making so long. I'm not waiting to the end of the day and I go home and make more awesome organization.

00:17:38--> 00:17:38

Jenna,

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

I don't know where to book you read that.

00:17:44--> 00:17:45

But this is a

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

this is a fool's way of making Suleiman

00:17:51--> 00:18:06

Allah has said in the Quran that he is prescribes the live fixed times. Not with the exception unless you're working unless you go into school. I didn't I don't know if that Tafseer or that explanation is out there. But inshallah I don't know everything.

00:18:09--> 00:18:23

I don't care what my boss thinks. I don't care. If I go to this job interview, wearing this hijab. Yeah, maybe they don't hire me. But if they don't hire me, because I'm wearing a hijab, I don't need that job anyway.

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

That's the job I don't need anyway.

00:18:28--> 00:18:40

Because if they don't want me to wear a hijab, they certainly not gonna let me pray. They certainly not gonna let me go to Juma. They certainly not gonna let me do anything that resembles the action of a Muslim.

00:18:41--> 00:18:54

So why would I even waste my time? That to me would, I would wear it everywhere every job interview I went just to see if there's a job I want to take or not. If you hire me with this, then maybe we might be able to work with something.

00:18:56--> 00:19:08

Or you don't want to hire me? Because I have here or I'm telling you that on Fridays. I have to go to Joomla that I oh wait a minute, Friday is Joomla Come on, man. This is middle of the day. You can just leave work.

00:19:09--> 00:19:27

Be like look you man, I will work. I'll work morning time. I work night time. I'll work overtime. I'll work weekend time, our Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year's hour any other time but Friday at noon is a lost time. See you

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

I'm out of here.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

No matter what you say.

00:19:35--> 00:19:43

When we begin to think like this, Allah Subhana Allah will begin to change your life and he will begin to change our condition.

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

And I'm not telling you this just from reading in some books.

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

You'll telling you this because I have put it to the test over and over and over again. I wouldn't be here right now doing what I'm doing.

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

If I didn't put it to the test,

00:20:03--> 00:20:14

I've done it. And I've seen over and over again how I lost the final what the island never abandons his slave when his slave turns to him. Never, ever. Without a doubt.

00:20:18--> 00:20:25

There was one point just to give you a little personal experience, I don't like to put my personal stories in, but just to let you know, it works, and I've tried it many times.

00:20:29--> 00:20:40

I had a job. When I first moved to Florida, was a new Muslim, had left South Carolina and was trying to gain knowledge of my Dean.

00:20:41--> 00:20:55

And the only job I could take was a crazy construction job in Florida in the summertime 90 degrees outside man 95 degrees with the humidity like 87% outside dying, man. I'm not I'm not made for this type of stuff.

00:20:56--> 00:21:03

In on Friday, but I was doing it because this is the only job I can find. And I know that Allah subhana wa, tada will take care of me.

00:21:07--> 00:21:28

I went on Friday, and told my boss, look, I gotta go to Juma. I gotta go. I'm gonna take a long lunch today, but I'll stay late. He was like, No, man, we there's no leaving. You don't leave this worksite I'm like, Look, this is my religious obligation. I have to go to the gym on Friday. He was like, Look, if you leave the job, then you're fired.

00:21:29--> 00:21:45

I said, Well, I'll see you in two weeks to get my check. Because I'm out. And I left. I just left and I said to myself hospital law when the molecule Allah sufficient for me, man, I don't need no, not gonna violate my Deen because I think I need something from the dunya.

00:21:46--> 00:21:55

So I left went to joma not knowing how I'm going to get another job. Not knowing how I'm going to take care of myself. I went to Juma and I was leaving Japan.

00:21:57--> 00:22:10

And I made the dua during the the to the to join one of the ones that are associated cinemas is never unheard from Allah subhana wa, I made one of those. So you're blowing my mind. My wealth is in your hands. I walked outside of Japan.

00:22:11--> 00:22:19

And there was a brother who had just come from Philistine, a chef from Philistine, one of the most knowledgeable brothers I've ever met in my entire existence.

00:22:20--> 00:22:33

And he came from Philistine and he had a he owned a pizza shop and now puts in Jerusalem. And he came here to open up a pizza shop and established his family here because of all the fitna in Jerusalem at the time.

00:22:34--> 00:22:47

And he came up to me ask what he said, Brother Lucia, do you have a job right now? I said, Actually, no, I just quit today. He said, Well, I need somebody to work for me. And he had me on the spot and gave me double what I was making at the construction job.

00:22:49--> 00:23:07

And this is just one instance of about 1000 that I could give you of how when you put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala he never, ever lets you down. Because if he let me down, I wouldn't be able to do what I'm doing right now. I abandoned three to four martial arts schools, I had running full time in Florida,

00:23:09--> 00:23:16

doing well off and more of the duty that I knew what to do with and left it knowing that this is what Allah subhana wa ala

00:23:17--> 00:23:30

had for me to do this was for me to do. I knew this was my calling. I needed to tell these people about Islam that I'm in this country that I'm from, and Allah subhana wa jal has never had me to worry about anything. Ever. I 100 Allah, Allah, Allah mean,

00:23:31--> 00:24:12

when we begin to think like this, that we want to please Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anything else, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will look at us and begin to love us again. He'll begin to love us again. And when he begins to love us again, Otto Susana, Selim said that the Muslim does good actions so much, until Allah loves him. And then when Allah loves him, he will tell the angels nearest to him. I love so and so. So you love them. And those angels will communicate that down to all of creation until the entire creation begins to love this person.

00:24:13--> 00:24:30

This was what are Susana Selim had, this is what the Sahaba had. And this is why the whole world was given to them. Because the creation loved them. Because even the non Muslims whose countries they can't could love them so much.

00:24:31--> 00:24:48

That when they decided to leave and try to hand the governorship back over to the people, that people would beg them to stain and adopt the Dean of their conquerors in mass until the entire world was willingly under La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

because these Muslims put their priorities in place, a lot came first. Everything else came second. My job

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

came second, the dunya comes second, the family comes second, your children come second.

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

Your wife, your husband comes second.

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

And this is what I tell my family sometimes all the time.

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

When you know we tell somebody Oh, I love you more than anyone else in the world, sometimes our husband or wife, you know, we tell each other that Come on, don't play with me, man.

00:25:23--> 00:25:26

You know, oh, yeah, honey, I love you more than anything in the world.

00:25:30--> 00:25:43

Your wife should turn around and tell you, then you got a mistake. You have you have me mistaken. You should love Allah and His Messenger, more than anything in this world, then your mother, then your father, and then

00:25:45--> 00:25:56

this is the way we have to put our priorities in check that we know what we're dealing with. Because when we put our priorities in disarray, we have this condition that we look.

00:25:57--> 00:26:05

I'll tell you how we look as a woman from a hole. If you were to look up from above and see us all at one time. How many of you've ever went and stuck a stick in an ant hill?

00:26:06--> 00:26:09

How many Come on now? Playing on me? How many of you tortured hands?

00:26:11--> 00:26:22

You go and you stick a little stick in a hand here? What happens? They all start scrambling, trying to figure out what's going on. And they're all running in 30,000 different directions, trying to figure out what's going on. in disarray, man,

00:26:24--> 00:26:35

this is us. This is how we look, we look like somebody is taking this they're gonna stick in the anthill. And we have no idea what's going on. We know that the problem, we know we're all trying to fix in a different way, and we get nothing done.

00:26:37--> 00:26:57

And I'll tell you why. Because although some of our honey was settled and said, Whosoever vision where their focus their attention is on this dunya that means when they wake up in the morning, the first thing they think about is what I got to do today in this venue, how am I to make some money? How am I gonna do this? How am I gonna do that? is all they think about.

00:26:59--> 00:27:13

Although some of them said that Allah will make that person's affairs in disorder, he will make your affairs like this. And we all know those people. They seem like they have so much to do when they get nothing done.

00:27:15--> 00:27:20

And they look crazy doing it and run themselves crazy. I seen brothers like that, like,

00:27:21--> 00:27:30

Where you going? Okay, I gotta go to this class, and I beat that class and I gotta go work, then I got to go to another job. Here, slow down, man. You mix a lot yet salon. Awesome.

00:27:31--> 00:27:32

I missed like three already.

00:27:35--> 00:27:40

And this is their condition. And also by chasing this dunya.

00:27:41--> 00:27:50

We don't know that we're losing it. Because although some of them said not only what is the phase be in disarray. Allah will place poverty between his two eyes.

00:27:52--> 00:27:55

Allah will place poverty between his two eyes.

00:27:57--> 00:28:10

And he will get nothing from this dunya except that which Allah has already ordained for him. What was written for you before Allah even created you. That's all you'll get.

00:28:12--> 00:28:19

If Allah means for you to get $200 a week, I don't care if you get a job that's giving you $1,000 a weak

00:28:20--> 00:28:33

at the end of the day, you're going to end up with $200. This is the cover of a law. If you think I'm playing games tested, try it out, see look at people's lives. Look at how easily money comes and goes.

00:28:35--> 00:28:56

Just a clear example for you how Allah subhanho wa Taala deals equitably with his issue of what he's already ordained. We have an economic crisis going on in this country. Right? They call it the Great Recession. They spent they're spending months and hours in millions. They're spending millions of dollars to figure out why they lost millions of dollars.

00:28:59--> 00:29:07

And they still haven't come to the conclusion. They still don't know why they lost all their money, man. When as soon as it happened, I already knew.

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

You know what happened?

00:29:10--> 00:29:15

Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in the Quran that he will destroy forever.

00:29:17--> 00:29:37

He will destroy river usury, they will end not too long ago, about a month ago there was a economic an economist on CNN that says what happened in this past two years is that we have lost almost all of the capital interest that we have gained since the depression.

00:29:40--> 00:29:57

Yes, you have because Allah subhanho wa Taala promised that he will destroy this usury, so you can go ahead and build the system back the way you had it. And the same thing is gonna happen. This is the cover of a loss of Hanover diet. I don't care how much wealth you think you have, if the law is already written for it to be this much. That's going to be it.

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

But also

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

Russell solo Selim said whoever's focus in their mind is on the app here on the hereafter.

00:30:09--> 00:30:11

That means that the accurate is first.

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

And the way you can look at this

00:30:17--> 00:30:27

and I'm gonna explain in a minute, I'll tell you the way you can look at this. He says whoever looks at the ask you the first, a loss of pitino who went to Allah will make his affairs in order. In order

00:30:29--> 00:30:43

that person no matter how much they have to do, they will be at peace in their life, and their affairs will be an order. Have you ever wondered? Have you ever looked at a brother? And I'm gonna give you a perfect example. Right here in Minnesota.

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

Look at a brother like, like shake Hatton.

00:30:47--> 00:30:49

How much does this brother do, man?

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

How much does this brother do

00:30:53--> 00:31:03

it but every time I've met him, he's a calm at ease and peace. He never seems like he's in a rush. Never seems like he's in a hurry. How many of you ever met him and seen him live where he'd be frustrated and be like, man, I gotta go. Gotta go.

00:31:05--> 00:31:16

He come see all the time helps. He's a medical doctor. He lives some kind of law. almost an hour and a half away from me. I couldn't even go to his house for lunch. Because he lived so far away from him. He had to come here to see me.

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

I know another brother like this mm, Safi Khan.

00:31:21--> 00:31:46

He was the Imam of a community. What I mean by the man was he was the man. He solved every single problem that appeared in the community. He worked from father to late into the night. And he never turned anyone down. And he had time for all of these things, to be the man to be the leader of the school to deal with Muslims, all the different problems that were going on, to learn his studies to go travel and speak here and do this and do that to start an Islamic school to start an Islamic bank.

00:31:48--> 00:31:54

We look at the scholars of our past, who were not only scholars of Deen, but scholars of dunya.

00:31:55--> 00:32:19

They accomplished so many things with so little information, they had so little access to information how, because Allah subhanahu wa taala made their affairs in order, everything they did was done with a loss of Hannah without his blessing, with a better of a law. And anything with a loss. medica is better than everything without it.

00:32:21--> 00:32:32

And also, he said that his affairs will be an order. And a law will cause the dunya to come after him

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

will cause the dunya to come to Him

00:32:38--> 00:32:48

will cause the dunya to come to you. So when you're chasing the dunya Ali era de la Han, and I'll be done in about 10 minutes. On the road, the long line said something.

00:32:49--> 00:33:00

He said that when you take one step towards the dunya towards this world, it takes two steps to get away from you. And death takes two steps to catch up to you.

00:33:01--> 00:33:34

So do the math, which one is going to catch who first you take in one step don't you take into to get away from you never catch it. And death is taken to behind you is going to catch you before you even get close to the dunya. The dunya is getting farther, your death is getting closer. Also, some of our holiday was Elon said he drew two lines in the sand one farther than the other. He said that, that the farther line away from him where he said this is man's desire. This is his hopes and his dreams and his wishes.

00:33:35--> 00:34:00

But the shorter line is his death. And He will surely run into that line before he ever run into the other one. This is just the son of Allah subhanho wa Taala you want this dunya Do you want it? Yeah, I want it we all want to not have to worry about things then run away from it. I know that sounds so ludicrous. Run away from it and I don't mean

00:34:01--> 00:34:06

I don't mean quit your job. And and and and and and

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

don't work and make things that a law is going to support you while you go and do hotels every other weekend in the doll in all this other stuff and think that Allah subhanho wa Taala just going to just magically send the check in the mail doesn't work like that. We still have to work Allah has commanded the man to work and be the caretaker of his home. Don't think I'm saying that but what I mean by run away from it is don't care about it.

00:34:32--> 00:34:42

Don't care about this dunya put it in the back burner. And what I mean by putting the back burner and have the ACA is your focus. Allah subhana wa Allah says in the Quran welaka

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

look at kennela comfy Rasulullah he also told Hasina that indeed in the Messenger of Allah for you have a beautiful example, Lehman Cana, your jeweler How will young will ask you to wear that gorilla cathedra for whoever's mind whoever's vision their hope is in a law and the law

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

Last day,

00:35:01--> 00:35:44

and they remember a lot much so Muslims should always their focus their vision, their hope, should be on the Day of Judgment. And I'm going to talk about that tomorrow vision, how we need to have a vision going forward in this movement of Islam, this new revitalization of Islamic thought in the Muslims of America and the rest of the world. We'll talk about that tomorrow inshallah to Allah. But what you need to be looking at when you wake up in the morning, is acida. Because when we think of al Qaeda, most of the time if people tell you they have judgment, or Yama laughter, we think of something long way off. Awesome panel. Ah, man, that's, they have just been man.

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

I'm not worried about that right now. Man, I got to be at work in like 45 minutes. tomada did, gentlemen, I gotta catch the bus. I'll see

00:35:54--> 00:35:57

who guaranteed you Your Day of Judgment doesn't start today.

00:35:58--> 00:36:22

Who guaranteed you that your day of judgment is not going to start tonight? What do I mean by that? I mean that your death come to you. Who's promised you another second in this life? No one. And when death comes to you, that's the beginning of your Acura. That is your last day. Because that's the time when all your deeds

00:36:23--> 00:36:55

cease. Except for three, which we know. But that's it. There's no going back and like, Oh, hold on a second. Give me 1010 minutes. Let me go pray real quick. When the Angel of Death comes? He doesn't question anyone. Just takes the soul. So who's going to tell you when your day of judgment is not going to start? So you should always keep that in mind? What am I doing for the day of judgment? How many of you would raise your hand and say you're ready to go in front of a loss of Hana with either right now? With what the DJ, have you ready to go in front of a low? That's it? I have enough?

00:36:58--> 00:36:58

And think so.

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

We can never have enough we should always be thinking, What am I taking you for a loan now because autosource de la Selim said

00:37:09--> 00:37:14

that everyone should take account of themselves before the account is taken for them.

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

They should take account of themselves before the account is taken for them.

00:37:22--> 00:37:36

You should always keep track of your own good deeds. We keep better track of our bank accounts than we do our deeds will lie to them. We keep better track, you can tell me probably your last 10 transactions in your bank account and your balance.

00:37:37--> 00:37:40

I asked you what the last 10 good deeds you did.

00:37:41--> 00:38:06

Let me think, give me a second. You pull it on me now. We should constantly be thinking you're putting your you're thinking more about the money that you put in a bank which I can't promise you will be there tomorrow. There's no promise you put money in the bank is going to be there tomorrow, when we don't think about the bank of the aqidah What am I putting there? Because you put money in this bank. They could What if they came to me and said you know what,

00:38:07--> 00:38:22

all the money is worth nothing anymore. When I take in this money, Morgan create a new money because this money is worth nothing now. So we create new money, your money's worth nothing. There's no guarantee that you're going to have at the bank down the street goes out of business, there's no guarantee you're gonna get your money back.

00:38:24--> 00:38:36

But when you give it to Allah subhanho wa Taala your deeds, he becomes the guarantee or he becomes the short term, he becomes the trustee over those leads, and you are guaranteed to get them back with interests.

00:38:38--> 00:38:45

is the only ribault Allah Subhana Allah Allah multiplies the deeds with interest manifold that you cannot even begin to understand.

00:38:46--> 00:39:18

So this is our mind frame and I'm finished. This is what we need to be thinking about. What are we doing? Who are we trying to please? What am I doing in my daily life? Am I trying to be pleasing to Allah? Or am I compromising my Deen in order to make people like me? Because let me guarantee you they never liked you. Let me guarantee you they never liked you. But when you turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, like autosol, soda, cinnamon and Sahaba did the world will come running to us. Allah will give us the world because we are worthy of having it.

00:39:19--> 00:39:32

We ask now Oh, y'all not give us a world that he left? And I'm like, No, no, no, no, please don't do that. Now. If allow us to give us the world right now. We would destroy it. And probably six months. We have to move to Mars.

00:39:33--> 00:39:59

We can barely run on messages. We thought about giving us the world man. Now we're not ready. We're not ready. We need to get ready. We need to prepare the way to be ready. We're asking for something we're not ready for. We need to get ready for it in sha Allah. We need to ask about soprano with the eyelid to make us ready for this task to be his he left on this earth. We need to ask him for this sincerely and check our intentions and check our deeds and

00:40:00--> 00:40:39

Check our actions and see where it is that we're going. And let me tell you all of this stuff for a massing in this world, all of this stuff when they're trying to collect means nothing, then you want to own something. My first shift told me this very early as a Muslim, you want to own something, you may think you own something. Now, you may think you own your money. In all your money, you own some paper, that the government says what is worth, you think you own your car, you don't own your car, don't pay insurance on it, don't pay your taxes on it. You may think you own a house, surely don't pay your property taxes on your house and see what happens. You own nothing. You own nothing in this

00:40:39--> 00:41:20

dunya you can't take anything of it with you. The only things that you own are the things that you give for the sake of Allah subhana wa, Tada. That's it. That's the only thing you own. Because as soon as you give something for Allah, Allah holds it, and gives it back to you. That includes everything, not just money. That includes your time. Every second that you give to Allah belongs to you, every second that you spend chasing this dunya you've lost it, you lost it. Every action that you do sincerely for Allah belongs to you every action that you do for something else, you've lost it, you wasted it. So let us not waste any more time do your brothers and sisters Time Time is

00:41:20--> 00:41:48

running out man. Time is running out. And if we don't decide whether we're going to be with it, or against it, then I guarantee Allah is going to make the decision for us. there's coming a time where Allah subhana wa that is going to make the decision for us. For who is against him, for who is with him or who is against him. And we don't want to be on the outside when the gate is closed on that day. charlotta Allah

00:41:49--> 00:41:50

Bismillah

00:41:57--> 00:41:57

Allahu

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

Allahu wa salam and let me

00:42:06--> 00:42:08

move forward, one hand
