Ohio had we had new Mohammed, Omar Ali was seldom or shall remove data to have a political

agenda Lollapalooza louder than

00:01:11--> 00:01:26

the brothers and sisters in sha Allah, them to be short and sweet and to the point and I have two things I want to discuss with you in the light, one that is particular to the season and the time of year that we are in and one is particular to this day and the necessity of this day.

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

Even Omar, radi Allahu Allah,

00:01:32--> 00:01:37

reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, very beautifully,

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

Manta shabba, becoming a woman, whoever imitates the people, whoever imitates the people, then surely he is one of them. Whoever imitated people is one of them.

00:01:51--> 00:02:36

Why am I using this today? Because when we look around the world right now, the world is in the midst of its joyous festive celebrations. And we as Muslims have to decide and are living in the West, how we interact within our societies during these times of the years. And this doesn't just happen during this time of the year. It's not during this Christmas time. We see the same thing, Easter, same thing Valentine's Day, same thing with many other celebrations that happen throughout the year in western civilization. And unfortunately, this has affected the Muslim Ummah, for over us for over 1000 years, 1000 years this topic has been dealt with, and the oleana have used the exact

00:02:36--> 00:02:57

same phrase from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam in advising in mourning the onma that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said manda Shahada COVID accounted for who among whom, that whoever imitates the people, he's one of them, he is over them. But I'm not just going to give you rhetoric that has been told before. I want to remind you of something very, very important.

00:02:58--> 00:03:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I've mentioned this very often on this exact number. And we'll continue to repeat this fact, because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam repeated things on numerous numerous occasions, to remind the people to not forget, because we as human beings are forgetful, we forget very, very quickly and easily. If we are not reminded we forget, there's a reason why a lot legislated for us to pray five times a day. There's a reason why less than pray when you get up, pray in the middle of the day, pray in the afternoon, pray in the evening and then pray again before you're asleep because we as human beings are forgetful, or forgetful, and we forget very quickly.

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

Allah azzawajal

00:03:39--> 00:04:22

gifted humanity with the greatest of gifts, gifted humanity with the greatest gifts, and the greatest of those gifts, his guidance, guidance, your dean, your Islam, and when that guidance he gave you criteria upon how to remain on that guidance upon how to live upon that guidance upon how to act upon that guidance. He gifted you with a noble Quran, which is the book of Allah which in which the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said in his farewell sermon is like a rope. One hand of it with a lot went into it with Allah azza wa jal, and the other end of it with you. If you hold on to it, you'll never go straight, because you have pure righteous guidance. This Quran needs to be a bigger

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

part of our lives. Because the Quran is that which guides to what is right, that Quran is that which gives us a model upon which to live our lives and halon haram and Jenna and not and how to behave and that how to be and how to not behave. And then we have the son of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. They weren't human individual in history whom we know everything about him. The only messenger sent from Allah as virgin, that I can tell you how he ate, I can tell you how he slept. I can tell you how he walked, how he dressed, how his beard was, how he combed his hair, how he perfumed himself, how he smiled how his teeth were arranged.

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

Every single, small detail about him I can tell you, because this is how much care the companions of the Prophet alayhi wa sallam gave to dedicating themselves to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:14--> 00:05:23

And with this Allah has given us everything we need nothing beyond this, as we said in the beginning of the clip, or shout out

00:05:24--> 00:05:47

to her, that the worst affairs are something that you place into it. The worst of this affair, this religion of ours, this Deen of ours, the worst of it is something which you add to it, something which you put in it that did not belong, something that Allah didn't legislate something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not teach us, we place it as part of our Deen. These are the words of a phase. And

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

when we look around the world today,

00:05:52--> 00:06:25

if you travel all over the globe, the world is in chaos. The world is in utter chaos. Nobody knows what they're doing. The world is in shambles. And I'm not talking about just the West, I'm talking about the world everywhere you go from America to Canada, South America, to Asia, to Australia, to England, to our countries, to the Middle East to Africa, we don't have any idea what we are doing. And we are suffering, suffering on top of suffering. Why? Because we have no guidance. We don't know what we are

00:06:26--> 00:06:46

getting ourselves into. And the differences between right and wrong have become muddled. The difference between right and wrong is become great. No one knows today, what is right or what is wrong anymore. Even the wrong is become right and the right is become wrong in many places. Now, I want to ask all of you something.

00:06:47--> 00:07:30

If the world is in laws about halal and haram between right and wrong, what is good, what is evil, what is halal, what is shadow? What is what is, what is munkar? What is what is anything? Who is it left to make that distinction? Who's left on the world to make that distinction? distinction, because humanity has been trying for a millennia to decipher for themselves, what is right and what is wrong, and we have ended up with a world that is chaotic. We've ended up in a world where no one knows the right bounds. I mean, look at what's happening in our own country. Look what happened on the other side of this very country. People don't understand right and wrong, evil, our morals have

00:07:30--> 00:07:55

become so degradative so delineated that we don't understand even human value anymore. So if that is the case, who is it to make the distinction? Who is the media going to tell us what is right and wrong? The main propagator of information in the world? Is the media, the mass media, are they doing the job of telling right from wrong? Absolutely not. They are the biggest perpetrators of modeling the facts.

00:07:56--> 00:08:08

at large, they are the biggest perpetrator of modeling the facts. They tell the truth is false. In the false it is truth. They are big perpetrators of this mess. So who's responsible?

00:08:09--> 00:08:27

Are governments responsible? They're not responsible. They haven't had that they themselves are doing their best to figure it out and are failing miserably at trying to decide what's right and what's wrong. Our laws are legislations, the system's broke, the system at large is broken. broken. So who's gonna fix it?

00:08:28--> 00:08:40

What about Minnesota? They're doing a good job of spreading their their their message of love, and peace and merriment. Yuletide joy, did they say this time of the year? is are they responsible for right and wrong?

00:08:41--> 00:09:00

Absolutely not. Because they have no distinction of right and wrong. They have nothing either. They have no law. They're very religion teaches them to toss the law, that the law is not meant the law of God is not meant for men. The men can never perpetrate it perfectly. Therefore just toss it out and follow man made laws. That's part of the exact problem.

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

What about other religions? No, because they have all

00:09:06--> 00:09:12

deteriorated their religion so much, that it no longer resembles what it originally was. So who's responsible?

00:09:13--> 00:09:57

Who's responsible? We us? us the Muslim army is the only people on this planet responsible for right and wrong. us We are the only ones upon guidance. We are the only ones upon the straight path. We are the only ones that have a book that teaches us clearly. Hello, hi, Ron. This is what you do. This is what you don't do. This is how you do it. This is when you do it. This is why you do it. And this is the repercussions for those who don't do it. And this is the bliss and the joy that comes from doing it. Our Deen is plain and simple. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam said I have left you upon that which is clear. It's night is like its date. No one deviates from it except he is lost.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam left us

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

On a very clear plane, everything that is right and wrong is clearly laid out in Islam. But the problem is it's not making it from those books. Because those books are only books, they're inanimate, that content that sits on the shelves, that Koran that sits on those shelves, is inanimate, it has no life of its own to go out and propagate itself. And Allah azza wa jal told his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that very fact. And He even told him that if I had will, they all would have believed. Allah does not need anything to teach humanity right and wrong, he can easily guide everyone to the truth, and we would live in a utopia, but that will not exist. Until

00:10:40--> 00:11:18

then, there was an existence agenda. This world is not meant to be like that. Allah says, If I will, they would have all believed so then will you kill yourself if they don't believe? Will you then kill yourself if they don't believe he was telling us messenger that I could have guided all humanity, they're not all gonna come along, but you do your job, you do your job of sharing the message. And he did his job, he changed the world as we knew it, he drew a line in the sand that this is right, this is wrong. This is the proper way of life to live. You can accept it and get on board with the system that is going to make humanity better, or you could be on the outside of it.

00:11:19--> 00:12:02

Very simple, there is no third choice. either get with it, or get lost, and you are lost will be a loss in this life. And in the next very clear, clear words, not arrogant, just clear that this is what you need. If you want to live a prosperous life, Islam is the solution. It is the solution. Hands down. No questions are a tea that teaches us to have no doubt about this fat Valley cookie Table Array Buffy who that again, this is the book there's no doubt in it. It is a guidance for those who fear Allah, simple, plain. But again, those books just sit on those shelves. They sit on those shelves, they're not enemy, they don't get up and go walk and tell people about themselves.

00:12:02--> 00:12:45

That job of getting that book and the teachings of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam who is dead, he has passed away. He is gone. He's not with us anymore. He only lives on through His Son, some mobile Hollywood sending his message only lives on through the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. But those two things again, sit on books, the sun is in books, it's in books of headings, it's in books of narrations. It just sits on shins. The only way those books will ever, ever make it out to civilization is if we do our job. And that doesn't mean you have to take over and go and stand on a street corner and tell people what it says all day long. You have a life to

00:12:45--> 00:13:22

live you have a job to do. I understand that. What that means is that you live that book in your life. You start exemplifying Islam, in your actions, you start living Islam. And one of the things that is primary about living Islam is that Islam is different than every other way of life. It's different. It's different. And there are so many occasions, the prophet alayhi salatu salam commanded us upon that difference, commanded us upon that difference by saying curly foo, Hurley foo be different

00:13:24--> 00:14:08

than people who associate a partner from Allah, just be different from them. on so many occasions, even things that themselves were permissible, he would tell us not to do or to do things differently, just so that we would differentiate themselves. He said that whoever gets a gray hair and Islam, it will be a new one for him on the day of Day of Judgment, there'll be a light for him on the Day of Judgment, Mashallah to medical I'm glad I got a couple coming. But at the same time, he said since the Jews do not die it you die it just avoid black why Holly foreign mushrikeen be different from them. be different from them. He said they if you have two garments, pray in those

00:14:08--> 00:14:41

two garments. And if you only have one, wrap it around and pull it up like izhar don't hang it over your shoulders. Why Holly Fuu shaking, he said, Pray in your shoes, because they don't pray in their shoes ever. Holly full machete King. I could go on and on and on. On and on and on. He said be different from them. Why? Why? Because the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam was teaching you honor. He would teach new dignity that you needed to differentiate yourself because if you're applying guidance, and you're the same as everyone else, what makes them want to be like you.

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

If you are exactly the same as everyone else, if your life imitates everything that everybody else that is upon misguidance is doing. You walk like that you sleep like them, you talk like them, you act like them, you greet each other like them, you you you you marry like them, you divorce like them. You have several

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

abrasions like them, what would make them want to be like you, you're trying to be like them, there is no difference. There is no dividing line for them to crossover. You're telling them that Islam is the most pure way of life, but they don't see the difference. The difference must be there. It must be there, it does not mean that we have to be separate from society. But we should be able to live in society, yet being distinctly unique, distinctly unique upon guidance. When everyone is doing one thing, I'm not doing it on that day.

00:15:30--> 00:15:45

When people are having Turkey, nobody said Turkey is home. But guess what, I'm not gonna have turkey on this day. Just because I'm going to be different. I'm just going to be different on this day, not gonna eat turkey on this day, I'm not going to give you a gift on this day.

00:15:46--> 00:16:21

I won't even if it's holiday to give you a gift. I won't give it to you on this day, because I will not imitate them. I will differentiate myself, by all means necessary from people who are upon misguidance not because I'm arrogant, not because I want to have some, some some idea of dominance? No, because I want to show them that I'm different. I want them to realize that what I have is different from what you have. And it's better than what you have. And it's more beneficial than when you have and it's clearer than what you have. And it will lead you to righteousness better than what you have. If we're not doing that, but who's gonna do it.

00:16:22--> 00:16:46

Tell me right now, if the world goes to hell in a handbasket, do you not think that the amount of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going to share some of that responsibility? Well, no, he we're going to share in it, we're going to share in it because this was taught by the prophet Lisa, that was Sam and Omar also taught that if Allah is displeased with the people, and he sends his punishment to them, he doesn't spare the Righteous Among them.

00:16:47--> 00:17:24

He doesn't spare the righteous, especially if those Righteous Among them are not owners. And they're not people who are trying to change the condition of what is around them. We got to wake up to this idea. Men to Shabbat have a fondness for one man whom whoever imitated people he is of them, he is one of them. He is one of them, we have to be careful with what we're doing. It doesn't mean you have to dress a certain way or act a certain way. If something is known as a dress from just amongst them, then you differentiate in that. But what is more is an attitude. It is an attitude. Your heart needs to be different. Your mouth needs to be different. your your your manners, your speech, Your

00:17:24--> 00:17:40

Worship, everything about you, your demeanor, the way you do business. The way you get married, the way you divorce, the way you have children, the way you celebrate all of that is different. And Allah azza wa jal reiterates this fact, instead of through my either.

00:17:42--> 00:18:13

When Allah says that Yahuwah when the sodre don't take them as earlier, don't take them as protectors above you. Why? Because they are only Alia, leave it to one another for themselves. And Allah as the gem says, For sure, whoever takes them as an earlier in a woman who, then without a doubt, he is one of them. Without a doubt, he is one of them. He's one of them. So behind Allah, the prophet alayhi salatu salam said, Whoever adds, whoever adds to the

00:18:15--> 00:18:40

whoever adds to the generation of a people, he is counted as a being amongst them will be resurrected with them. We have to be careful. Yeah. A lot of what we're doing, we're living in the West. Absolutely. We live here in America. Absolutely. You have an opportunity to worship Allah very beautifully in this country if you take advantage of it. But we need to differentiate that we are upon righteousness, that we have certain morals and etiquettes that we live upon, and that is not

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

decided based upon

00:18:45--> 00:19:25

societal norms. Music doesn't teach us our manners. Movies, don't teach us how to behave. The media is not going to tell us how to think we're not going to be influenced and how we raise our children by what you teach us in school. No, we have a book, we have a messenger. And this is how we live our lives. This is how we mandate our affairs. And it is pure, it is clean, and it is pristine. We don't need anything else. We need to teach this to our children, because I'm afraid that we're raising a generation that you're not going to be able to distinguish them from anyone else. I'm afraid we're raising a generation of youth, Muslims who will be raised up who you won't be able to distinguish

00:19:25--> 00:19:30

from the average Joe Blow in the streets who is upon misguidance who if they live like that will go to hellfire.

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

We have something that will lead us to gender. When we get in gender, everything else will not matter. It won't matter how much you were left or mocked out or ridiculed or what you went through in this life. It won't matter anymore. What will matter is that you made it to gender and no one will ask each other how did you get the gender did you get here easy. Was it hard for you? We won't care anymore will be an agenda but every one else is only destined for one place and that is jahannam there is no medium there is no vacation spot.

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

There is no euphoric place that if you don't make it into these two, there's a third option, there is no difference. And we know for sure, without a doubt in our lives, that only people following Islam, upon guidance from Allah azza wa jal, believing in the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are going to make an agenda, I'm not going to sit here and play games with you about that. There is no difference of opinion, anywhere by anyone, everyone else is only destined for one place, we need to go out and try to solve that problem and fix that help them come on this side, but you can't tell them that what I have is better than what you have, if you're no different. If what you

00:20:33--> 00:21:01

offering is not better than what they already have, or a different than what they already have, then what are you selling? What are you offering me? what you're offering me doesn't seem to be any different than what I have. And actually, if I listen to the media's point of view, it's much worse than I already have. So tell me, what do you have? What do you have, we need to know what we have so we can deliver it to them in sha Allah and because the Prophet Elisa reposted and this should scare you to death, if this statement doesn't frighten you to your core, then you're a human need some work?

00:21:02--> 00:21:11

mentor shabba min Amanda shabby Omen from a woman who whoever imitates the people. He's one of them. I'll pull it out of the huddle stuff here. Welcome. first outfit Oh no.

00:21:23--> 00:21:39

hamdulillah Robin alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was a big Marine, Valentina Talia in the same room with Dean or shadow in a hi Mama. Hola, hola. Sheree, cara, or shadow Anna Mohammedan. Abu rasuluh. I'm a dad.

00:21:40--> 00:22:19

I think that point is clear. That we are living in a time where the truth is known as false in the false that are known as truth. And we are living in a time of the year where there's a lot of things going on, that can cause us to fall under the context of men to shatter the common for who among whom the whoever imitated them tonight in Sharma to iron, the evening, Hanukkah will be all about this time of the year, the season of this time of the year, the celebrations that go on at this time of the year, their roots, their origins, their reality, to save our children and ourselves from them, because a huge fitna that is starting to affect the Muslim community. So inshallah to Allah

00:22:19--> 00:22:56

tonight after Senado Asia, we will go through those origins in detail and you'll be shocked, you will be quite shocked at how some of the most seemingly harmless things that we might fall out, find ourselves falling into come from the most demonic pagan origins. Be careful, you want to hoard, please protect yourself from these things, we've been given a pure religion stick to it, we need nothing else insha Allah, and as we're finishing on to tell you a little story. Because today, you're going to be called to account and I've said this story before, I'm going to tell it to you again, I like repeating stories, because we need to hear them over and over again. And there is

00:22:56--> 00:22:59

nothing better the Quran is oft repeated, off repeated.

00:23:01--> 00:23:04

There was a time at the companions

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

in Medina

00:23:07--> 00:23:20

where there was an orphan who wanted to build a wall. He wanted to build a wall. And the reason I'm telling you the story today is you don't have to decide to be one of these two people today that I'm going to tell you about there was two people in the story,

00:23:21--> 00:23:26

two main players of this story, and you will have to decide to be one of them.

00:23:28--> 00:23:48

And this orphan wanted to build the wall. But while building this wall, there was a tree that he ran into, that prevented him from finishing the wall. And what he had to do was either take this tree down, or incorporate this tree into his property, so he needed to possess the tree, but the tree belonged to his neighbor. So he went to his neighbor.

00:23:49--> 00:23:58

And he asked his neighbor to give him the tree. They said no, I'm trying to remember the name I'll probably remember by the end of story and jet lag just made it from London a day a day ago.

00:24:00--> 00:24:08

The Labour said no, not gonna give you the tree. And so he said, okay, just sell me the tree. He said, No, I'm not going to sell you the tree. I'm not going to sell you the tree.

00:24:09--> 00:24:36

The orphan was very sad. So he went and complained to autosol Salalah Halima send them and we know this special place that Prophet sallallahu Sallam had for orphans yet, you all know that special place. He said, Whoever takes care of the orphans will be like this with me on a date of gentlemen like this. So he had a special place for orphans. So he was very upset at how this orphan was being dealt with. So he called the neighbor to him.

00:24:37--> 00:24:37

And he said,

00:24:39--> 00:24:42

I'm trying to remember the name. He said sell him this tree.

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

And he said, No, I'm not selling the tree. It is my this is my right. This tree is my right. I don't have to sell it to him. So I said I'm so okay with it. Just give it to him. So don't give it to him. said no jasola This is my tree. He must have really loved the tree.

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

He had some special value to him that I'm not giving up the tree. So the prophet SAW the law and he was setting him said,

00:25:08--> 00:25:11

Alright, I'll make you a deal. If I can promise you

00:25:12--> 00:25:50

a tree like this tree in Jannah Will you give it to him? If I promised you if you give this young man this tree, I will promise you a tree in paradise when you take the deal. Now, let me tell you what the man was being offered. Not only was he being offered a tree and gentlemen, but for those of you who have a tree in general, if you have a tree, and generally you're not going to be in jahannam looking at your tree, you're not going to be telling you your your your your cell is your cell mates and jahannam you see that tree over there? That's my tree. Has my tree. No, no, no. If you have a tree and Jen, in chat online, you will see that tree. So the man is being offered paradise on a

00:25:50--> 00:26:01

platter for a tree for a tree. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam was making a deal with him. The man said, No, keep my tree, keep your tree engine keep my tree

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

Subhanallah so the Prophet alayhi salatu salam looked at the boy.

00:26:06--> 00:26:22

So there's nothing I can do. There's nothing else I can do. I often demand paradise for God's sake, what do you owe me to give him I don't have anything else to give him. I don't have anything they can close the equate to that. So the orphan began to walk away. Sad. Now,

00:26:23--> 00:26:53

this man was well within his rights to keep his tree. It was his tree. He didn't have to give it to the boy. He didn't have to give it to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he had to give it to no one. And he committed no sin, no sin. He didn't commit a sin because it's his dream. He doesn't have to give it to anyone. So he was holding his rights to keep it but there was another man that was watching this happen. And his name was Abu there. Now Abu Dhabi, Allah who

00:26:54--> 00:27:13

owned one of the most beautiful orchards in all of Medina, it was well known. The scholars say between four to six to 800, beautiful day palm trees as well as his house was within the orchard. Now I moved that saw in front of him an opportunity. He saw an opportunity in front of him.

00:27:14--> 00:27:18

And he decided to take advantage. So he went to the man.

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

And he said,

00:27:22--> 00:28:03

Do you know of my garden? Do you know of my garden? Do you know if my orchard the man said there's not a person in Medina except they know of your garden? Come on, man. Yeah, you're just bragging. I mean, you know, does not everybody knows of your garden. He said, Now, this is the point of decision, because there could have negotiated with him, said, Look, I'll give you five trees. 1050 100 give me 200. I'll give you half of the whole thing. And we'll get there. So what was at stake? He saw what was at stake because he asked the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, ala rasulillah. If I can get this tree and give it to this orphan, can I get that same treat in gender? The Prophet

00:28:03--> 00:28:34

alayhi wa sallam said, Yes, the deals still open. So I wouldn't say that Saul was at hand. He saw the stakes were large. This was huge. This was not something to be missed. So what did he say to the man? If I give you my entire orchard? Everything if I give you all of it will give me that tree. He went all in. I know you've heard that term before going all in. He went all in. He wasn't going to play around with the chance to miss this tree in general. He went all in. That's all I got. It's all in nothing, all or nothing. He played his whole hand.

00:28:35--> 00:28:50

And with that, I mean, the man said, Are you serious? Are you serious? He said, Yes, sir. I'm serious. So he called everybody around and said bear witness that there has offered me his entire orchard for this tree. He said, I give it to you, the trees yours, take it.

00:28:51--> 00:29:08

And then Buddha told the orphan issues do as you wish. Now, I wish there had just made a transaction, his entire possession in this life for a treat engine. Now he had to go home and break the news to his wife.

00:29:10--> 00:29:14

And to go home and break the news to his wife that he's given away everything. We don't even have a place to live anymore.

00:29:17--> 00:29:34

This was a test for him on top of the test he'd already just faced. He had already won the first one. Now he's got to deal with the second one. The second one sometimes can be fierce. So he went and he didn't go inside the garden. Excited to stay outside. It's safer here maybe even safer standing here when I break this news. So he called into the garden. He said, Yeah,

00:29:36--> 00:30:00

come out. Because I've sold this garden. sold it. It's sold. This is how he looked at it. He looked at it as a tiara. I sold it. She said, Okay, what did you sell it for? was a lot of money. Where are we moving? He said I sold it for a tree engine. So therefore a tree in Ghana now, but I don't know how well this will go over years. I mean, you don't

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

Know, you might have to stand more than outside you might have to call from another country and say that you've done this. If not, may Allah bless your spouses and give you righteous pious children sha Allah. She said, Yeah, Buddha would have beneficial trade, what a prosperous transaction you have made. She went and got her children and her children were playing in the orchard. And they had in their pockets, rocks, and they, you know, children play, she started reaching into their pockets imagining the things that were in their pockets. She said, this doesn't belong to us anymore. This belongs to Allah. This belongs to Allah. Let's go. And they just left, they just left. Now.

00:30:36--> 00:31:14

The reason I'm telling you that today is because today you're going to be given an opportunity after Juma to decide which one of these people you want to be. Do you want to be the man who owned the tree? They didn't want to give it up? It was his right. He didn't have to. He didn't have to keep what belongs to you. No problem. Or are you going to be like a Buddha and go after what is in front of you go after the prosperous trade, go after the beneficial transaction, and decide how much you're going to go in. Because this is what life is all about. A lot gives you things, a lot of benefits you with things, he interests things to you, they don't belong to you. If you think

00:31:14--> 00:31:38

anything in this life is owned by you, your food, your food, because even your own self is not you don't own it. In La La, La La Jolla, we belong to Allah. Allah is the owner of everything. You don't own even your own body. It's not it's not at your disposal a lot, take it and turn it right back to the dusty created it from the property you own doesn't belong to you. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam once asked his companions and this is what we finished with

00:31:39--> 00:32:15

Which one of you likes the property of his inheritors more than he likes his own properties, but I'm afraid and the collection of the Muslim, which one of you likes the property of his inheritors means that which you leave to your inheritors more than you like your own property which you possess. The companion said, your rasulillah, none of us, there's not one of us, but we love our own property more. We love our own property more. He said that know that your property is that which you give to unlock your property is that what you give to Allah, that what you keep for yourself is the property of your inheritors. This is the reality of this life, death is real death is how it's going to come

00:32:15--> 00:32:48

to us this life has to come to an end, you're going to leave everything behind. The only thing that you will benefit yourself with, is that what you used now, use now, if not, you will leave it behind. You will leave it behind, you might leave behind today, tomorrow next week. But I guarantee you, you're going to leave something behind, decide what you're going to leave behind, are you going to leave behind property that is going to go someone else that is going to be destroyed one day, or you're going to leave behind Good, good deeds, I'm in a solid, because for sure all of us on the day of judgment or wish that we could come back and do that which we were supposed to do with what we

00:32:48--> 00:32:57

had. Allah says in the Quran, that when angels come to them and the death approaches then those say I don't have the energy Oh, my Lord, send me back. Why? Why don't you want to go back.

00:32:58--> 00:33:37

I'm in a solid heavy metal rock. So I can do some good with that which I left behind. So you will make that choice today in Charlottetown. Please, decide to get involved. I want everyone to know that this Masjid runs upon this community is a beautiful center Mashallah. The struggle that went forward to put this center into existence was a long, hard struggle. I was there I saw with my own two eyes, that was a part of it. But the beauty that has come out of the end is spectacular. And it's only in its infancy. This community center is only in its infancy it just began it has not even taken its its its first steps really yet. There's so much more that can be accomplished in that

00:33:37--> 00:34:10

desires to be accomplished with this community. But that becomes very hard to do. If this community has to fight and struggle just to keep the doors open. If it has the fighting struggle just to keep the lights turned on. If it has the fighting struggle, just to continue to provide heat for you so that you don't freeze half the death sitting here listening to this hookah. This is a service that is being given to you. What are you giving back in sha Allah, my only request for you is going to be a brother who's going to talk to you afterwards, my only request for you is to do something very simple. And this is not something impossible for anyone to do. But if you do it, I guarantee you

00:34:10--> 00:34:22

will see this community reach levels that you've never seen before. Every yamo jumar before you come here, make sure that you come here with at least a Abraham Lincoln bill in your pocket.

00:34:23--> 00:35:00

dollars, there's not a single person in this building, I'm almost assured of that doesn't have that capacity, five single dollars if you can do 10 Mashallah no less than five in your pocket. And when you come here, put it in that bucket on the way out to easy process to do. If you would have do simply that you would see this community be able to offer more services and benefit you and your children and your families and your spouses, like no other community in the Twin Cities, but that is in your hands. All they can do is ask and beg and plead. Don't make them do that that's not befitting of a Muslim. That's not befitting of a believer to have

00:35:00--> 00:35:36

Thank you all the time, please. $5 that's all it would take, put $5 in your pocket, take it out from the ATM, whatever you need to do every Juma for you Come here, put $5 in that book and on your way out. I think that's a pretty simple process that we all can achieve insha Allah to Allah income tonight, so that we can learn to protect ourselves from some of these fitness Booker's for sure men to show her the power mean for women home whoever imitated people he is one of them.
