hamdulillah was set out to a Salam O Allah Rasool Allah where he was happy he

00:00:18--> 00:00:42

said no more. Brothers and sisters. I just want to remind you guys today about how beautiful our Deen is because Islam is a gift. It is an AMA, Allah Subhana Allah says Allah tala can do this they have chosen your religion for you and have conferred My name is a comb my favour upon you and have chosen for you Islam is your deen. Now,

00:00:43--> 00:01:21

Allah Allah, Allah says and I have chosen for you Islam as your deen, I want you to think about that for a moment, a lot. jawara our Creator, our Lord around the control of the heavens and the earth has told us that he has chosen for us Islam as our Dean, what does this mean? This means that you did nothing to become a Muslim, you've done nothing to become a Muslim. I don't care if you were born into a Muslim family that was chosen for you by Allah. I don't care if he reverted to Islam like I did in 98. It was chosen for me I used to think that you know, maybe I I'd studied the Bible and left it and studied other religions and you know, maybe due to some effort on my own I had

00:01:21--> 00:01:58

become a Muslim law. As we talked about in our talk the other day predestination versus free will. Allah general Allah has everything in order and he is decided all affairs. So me accepting Islam in 1998 was a predestined fact that I could not avoid a law Genoa Allah had chosen for me to be a Muslim. But I want you to think about something for a moment and I like to give you things that are going to logically help you so you can think about them and help you out through your day in sha Allah. So today with me and john lawn, just want you to you know, think for a moment even if you want to just you know, close your eyes and just think about this for a moment. What is the first

00:01:58--> 00:02:05

thing that Allah created? Somebody type in the chat? What is the first thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala created for us?

00:02:08--> 00:02:12

I'm going to give a second and see if somebody in the chat can tell me.

00:02:13--> 00:02:20

So if you're watching this video and you're missing our streams, make sure you catch all the live streams. What is the first thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala created?

00:02:34--> 00:03:15

Allah Allah Allah created first the pin is the very first thing that the pin was created. Yes 123 get a the pin, the pin, the very first thing Alo created was the pin. And then what Allah jello Allah created the pin. He commanded the pin to write, he commanded the pin to write, and the pin requested my lord What should I write in Allah Jalla wa ala responded right everything that will ever happen ever. And the pen wrote all of those things. And it is in a book that is collected with Allah. Allah Allah foods. This is a book that is with the Lord, the Torah was revealed from the book, the NGO was revealed from this book, The Quran was revealed from this book, every year, Allah

00:03:15--> 00:03:56

sends down his other ancestors other and a lot of fodder from this book. So this book contains everything. And this was 50,000 years before Allah created anything else. before Allah created anything else, he created the pin, and he set his will for eternity. Now, I want you to think about something brothers and sisters, when when when I realized this, when this hit me, I remember I was distinctly remember I was on a plane. And I was reading this Hadeeth. And I was thinking about this. And this struck me so deeply. It it gave new life to everything I had done afterwards. It gave new life to mind that hour, it gave new life to my Dean, it gave new life to my life. It gave me

00:03:56--> 00:04:00

purpose. It gave me gratitude. Think about something brothers and sisters.

00:04:01--> 00:04:49

In that book, Allah Allah, Allah commanded that pin to write your name, and that you would exist, and that he would create you. And then in your life story, Allah Subhana, who without I thought about it myself, that in that book, Allah commanded that pen to write my name, right my life. And in that life story, Allah commanded that pin to write that in this day, on this hour on this year, right? I will guide him to Islam. I will guide him to myself, I will open his heart to me, and I will guide him to the truth. It was written for me, it was destined for me that honor that dignity, that honor and dignity to be a Muslim, to be blessed to be favored to be chosen in a small town in

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

South Carolina in the late 90s. Allah in His infinite mercy and His infinite wisdom, in his infinite mercy wrote that I would be a Muslim. He wrote for you

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

That you would be a Muslim. He wrote for you that you would be a Muslim, and you had done nothing to deserve it. It was written down 50,000 years before Allah decided to even create the creation, Allah dictated with himself that you would be guided Subhan Allah What have we done to earn this favor? Nothing. What have we done to repay this favor, very little. That fact alone. That simple fact alone, brothers and sisters should have you waking up every single morning to say Alhamdulillah every single morning to say Alhamdulillah, Allah chose for me this beautiful way of life called Islam. This honor, this immutable honor that no one can take away from you, besides your Lord is

00:05:44--> 00:06:23

something that you did not earn, nor did you deserve. So be grateful for it. This is an honor but insisted that you do not understand if a Muslim understood how favored they are, how honored they are, how dignified they are, they would never, they would never walk around with their head down. They would never see any day as a Muslim as a bad day, on the day of judgment, on the day when humanity is running like crazy and everyone is here there and the other, the nations from before us are going to be marched forward, the nation of Ebrahimi is going to be brought the nation of none is going to be brought the nation of Moosa is going to be brought the nation of Acer is going to be

00:06:23--> 00:07:03

brought and then after all of that the largest nation, the greatest nation will be marched in front of everyone with dignity with honor with respect and that is the Ummah of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you and I are a part of today. Subhan Allah. And then, when every single prophet is asked about their message, they ask, did you convey the message Allah will ask Noah, Allah will ask Abraham, Allah s Moosa Allah as the word Allah will ask Jesus, Allah will ask all of them, did you convey your message? And they will say, Yes, my lord, I conveyed my message. And then Allah will ask them, Do you have a witness? or excuse me, then Allah will ask their people, they will ask their

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

people, the nation that the people that they are around, did any messenger come to you?

00:07:08--> 00:07:21

And they will say no messenger came to us. We don't know who came to us. They're trying to avoid this. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask Noah, as moose asked Abraham, do you have a witness that will bear testimony for you that you did your job?

00:07:22--> 00:07:55

And they will all say you can go to Mohammed in the followers of Mohammed and they will bear witness for me. And then Allah will ask the followers of Mohammed sallallahu wasallam did Moosa do his job that he said do his job, did Noah do his job? did Abraham do his job? And we will say yes, because we bear witness for them. And Allah will accept the testimony of this ummah, the honor and favor that you have. And then on the Day of Judgment, when everybody is running around like crazy, and Allah subhanho wa Taala is angry, and the sky is cracking into pieces, and the oceans have been set ablaze. And Hellfire has been drawn near and the sun has been brought close. And the stars are

00:07:55--> 00:08:33

falling out of their places. And Everyone is scared and frightened and running around. They will run to Adam alayhis salam, and they will say Adam, and you'll find this in the Hadith in Bukhari, they will say Adam, our forefather, go to Allah and ask him to start the day of judgment. Just ask him to start it and get this over with. Adam will say, My Lord is angry today. He is angry like he has never been before and he is angry like he will never been again. I disobeyed My Lord in the garden. I disobeyed My Lord in the garden. Therefore I am worried about myself today Neff, see Neff. See, go to Ibrahim. And then we'll go to able to him and ask him the same thing. And he will say my lord is

00:08:33--> 00:09:11

angry today. He's angry like he never has been before and he will never be this angry again. I lied. You know when he did lie he made about his wife being the sister he said I lied. Therefore, enough's enough. See, I am worried about me today. Go to Moosa, they will go to moose and moose will say the same thing. My lord is angry. I killed the man even though it was in mistake. He will say I killed them and therefore I am worried about my own self Neff, see Neff? See I cannot help you today. Go to Jesus, and we'll go to aisa and he said was that they say the same thing. My lord is angry. And people worship to me like I was Allah. I have my own worries today. I cannot help you knifes enough.

00:09:11--> 00:09:47

See, how about you go to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, maybe Mohammed can help you. So we will go to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we will ask him are the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of creation, the best of humanity. Go to your Lord and ask him to start this day of judgment for us. And he will not refuse a subtler lie they were sending him. Why? Because he has a dual. He has a special. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that every single Prophet was given one day in their lifetime that they could ask for anything that they wish and Allah would grant it for them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

that every prophet used that da in their lifetime. Adam used it know him use that Moosa use that Jesus use it, they all use that dog in their lifetime. He said the dog that Allah gave to me, I saved it for you.

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

I saved it for you on the day when you need it most. Look how much he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved us look at how much in our messenger Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam cared about us this ummah, those whom he witnessed and those whose he didn't know our Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:10:17--> 00:10:35

when he will go before Allah Jalla wa ala and he will make sujood for as long as Allah wishes, it can be a long period of time, he will make some juden worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah will tell him home, get up and ask me and whatever you ask of me today I shall not refuse for you because he has that.

00:10:36--> 00:10:48

Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could ask for anything. He could ask for anything but what is he going to ask for? He says I will say, a mighty Amati my oma my oma forgive them.

00:10:49--> 00:11:21

Forgive them their wrongdoings forgive them their mistakes, forgive them their sins. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive the minor Sins of this on the based on the door and the profit so luckily we sell them this is why after the event, we say the door are in the part of the door after the event is Oh Allah give them 100 Salalah alayhi wa sallam they Schieffer the place of honor and rank and Shiva in the intercession on the date of jasmine, because we're going to need it.
