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

Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

colorfilled coronal green diamond Shantanu resumed yandina Amanullah tequila haka toccata

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

kilo will unto Muslim what

00:00:16--> 00:00:24

the law he Jamia will have to follow. The words I read to you just now are from the Holy Quran, this is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

the meaning of it is so deep and so important that our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he used to read this, or recite this

00:00:36--> 00:00:44

in almost every Juma speech, and so did so many other companions, and their followers and followers after them.

00:00:45--> 00:00:53

I want to emphasize this because the importance of these words will affect us today.

00:00:55--> 00:00:57

A lot law says, Oh, you who believe

00:00:59--> 00:01:03

to have tough prefer alone, tough love for Allah.

00:01:05--> 00:01:08

And it's a lot of right, that you have this tough word for him.

00:01:10--> 00:01:28

And then Allah says, and don't die, don't die except in the state of a slum. Don't die except that you are Muslims. Don't die, except that you are in the submission to the one true God doing what he wants you to do. And hold fast all of you together

00:01:29--> 00:01:34

to the hub level of the the cable or the road of a law.

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

And don't divide up

00:01:39--> 00:01:42

Do not make far apart

00:01:44--> 00:01:51

huruma the far upper areas haraam for Muslims to make our upper

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

separation and division.

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

If we can overcome

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

these two things,

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

we make a big difference in this world. And for ourselves in the next world.

00:02:11--> 00:02:24

That word is the first, far apart is the second taqwa means to put a partition, or hijab between you and something.

00:02:29--> 00:02:36

We say wait a minute, you want me to have tougher for Allah? How am I going to put a partition a hijab, or a curtain?

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

Between me and alone? It's not acceptable.

00:02:42--> 00:02:49

wherever it's talking about is a partition between you and the punishment of a law.

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

That anger alone.

00:02:54--> 00:03:10

And what is that, and it's shown to us in the front, clearly what it is to have this tough one is to firmly believe in the law, to believe in our guide to establish our worship, the Salah, and the pay this occur.

00:03:13--> 00:03:26

And to believe in what's revealed to Mohammed and what is revealed to the people before us. And all of this, and more is about artificial fasting in the month of Ramadan also helps us build taqwa

00:03:27--> 00:03:33

giving charity, especially in in times of difficulty for ourselves.

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

several emails have come to me just in the last 24 hours from right here in India,

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

telling me about difficulties that our brothers

00:03:45--> 00:03:52

and sisters are suffering about wealth, money, position, Family Health,

00:03:54--> 00:04:00

diseases, and they're saying why, why Why? Why is this happening to me?

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

Obviously,

00:04:04--> 00:04:13

I wouldn't be able to go into big detail, even if I knew all of their situation. But it suffice to say

00:04:14--> 00:04:22

that all of us are being tested by alone. Each and every one of us, regardless of our age, we're in this situation.

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

Some of it is punishment on us for what we're doing wrong.

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

And some of it is a test.

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

For sure, it is the law who is Buddhists in this situation? Is that true? Yes.

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

And it's only a law who's going to get us out of the situation. Is that true?

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

Unfortunately, we say it with our lips,

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

but

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

we don't really act on it.

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

If I need money.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

I need money. Bad. I got it.

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

pay a bill tomorrow.

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

I'm thinking, who can I call on who can I? Let's see?

00:05:07--> 00:05:13

What's the phone number for that guy said you were done. Oh, wait, let me guess my father. My uncle has some.

00:05:15--> 00:05:25

Or I can go to the bank, I suffered a lot of noise around, but you know, I gotta pay my bill. And that's how long not to pay the bill. And all of the ones that I mentioned,

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

are created by alarm.

00:05:30--> 00:05:36

All of the people I just mentioned were created by Allah. Why didn't I think go to alone?

00:05:37--> 00:05:45

Who put me in the circumstance alone, and who can get me out alone.

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

So now we'll turn our attention to the second word, which is farrakhan.

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

To divide or separate the Muslims is wrong.

00:05:58--> 00:06:02

It is a very serious offense

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

in Islam,

00:06:05--> 00:06:10

and it's a serious offense in front of belong, whoever divides the Muslims up,

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

cannot have much the hope for on the Day of Judgment with the law.

00:06:15--> 00:06:24

The prophet of Islam, symbolizes a sudden peace be upon him told us as the Jews and the Christians

00:06:25--> 00:06:34

divided up into 71 or 72 groups. The Muslims will also divide into 73.

00:06:36--> 00:06:40

In all of them, I will be in the hellfire.

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

Except for one,

00:06:45--> 00:06:56

the ones that me and my companions are on today. How many of you have heard about this before? You've heard everybody's raising their hand, Mashallah, you heard about it.

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

So this means you're not going to be in any of those groups, right?

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

Ha.

00:07:05--> 00:07:11

This means you're going to warn the others, you're going to tell them about the danger this right.

00:07:14--> 00:07:22

To be in which group, the group that the prophets ally Salaam and his companions were on, which is called what

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

it's called, what boop. Is that called?

00:07:27--> 00:07:28

Sony's

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

himself assuming?

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

No, it didn't know he didn't.

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

She I knew to be no.

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

Know

00:07:46--> 00:07:46

what?

00:07:49--> 00:07:59

I just told you will not move to the unknown. Don't die, except that you are

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

most Muslim. That's the group.

00:08:06--> 00:08:12

And somebody said, No, but our shape told us we have to have a different name to distinguish us from these people.

00:08:13--> 00:08:22

Those who are the improvisers and the innovators who are coming up with stuff, we have to distinguish ourselves, we have to be a whole slew of

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

cool stuff.

00:08:27--> 00:08:35

And our children are listening to this and picking up on it and thinking, Okay, I got to be in that group, because that's the right group.

00:08:36--> 00:08:46

But then another group come along said, No, no, no. You have to be on the way of the righteous predecessors who in Arabic, this is the standard.

00:08:48--> 00:08:52

And they were righteous, Saturday. style.

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

That's us.

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

But the I didn't say that either did it?

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

Then for sure, you don't want to even talk about the word Wahhabi.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

Don't even start that

00:09:08--> 00:09:14

because either you will insult it and say something against the word

00:09:15--> 00:09:23

which can be an act of copper or you will put yourself as though you are a part of the word which is also an active gopher.

00:09:25--> 00:09:44

Wahhabi is from what word Wahab Allah is Allah have Yes or no? A law is that what have the Bestower and if you want to be associated with this name of a law, you have to say up to wha Ha. So you have to say where the

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

bah bah, bah, not too much again to him.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

The person that they're really making fun of when they say that is a man named Mohammed actually

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Mohammed bin Abdul Wahab

00:10:04--> 00:10:12

and they didn't want to call them the Mohammed Eminem the wahabis. So they just slaughtered in called Wahhabi.

00:10:15--> 00:10:21

But if you said your Wahhabi, you're saying you're a law or something like alarm, which is, as I said, bad.

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

And if you make fun of it, you're making fun of the name of the law. So

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

why do you need this name?

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

And you're confusing these children.

00:10:35--> 00:10:55

These guys, they're innocent. They're born innocent, you know, that the prophet SAW Salaam told us. The condition of Islam itself is like the condition of a child. The withdrawal of the child is the center of Islam. And the picture of Islam is the pitter of the channel.

00:10:56--> 00:11:05

The best way to explain this man to another Muslim is down you see this child? This child, this baby, this is Islam, innocent.

00:11:08--> 00:11:17

willing to obey, willing to do whatever it takes to please the one and authority that's what is that means?

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

And how do you get that when you divide up into these groups,

00:11:22--> 00:11:32

and the children are looking at us. And they will make the same exact mistakes, or worse.

00:11:34--> 00:11:49

Because that's the way human beings always do. How many of you remember the story of Noah is that um, you remember the story of Noah, the prophet that was in the boat and went out into the water and all the people drowned? Except for them? Remember the story? Yeah.

00:11:53--> 00:11:56

The people of know, were the first ones.

00:11:58--> 00:12:14

To put these grave markers up were righteous, holy people had been buried. They did, because they wanted the next generation to remember those righteous people and the good deeds and the things that they did. They said, these guys were the good guys

00:12:16--> 00:12:17

be like them.

00:12:20--> 00:12:29

The Next Generation came along and said, these guys, you know, they're the righteous ones, but they're pointing at a statue.

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

And some generations later, the people are praying straight to the statue instead of to a law.

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

How many of you know the story, you know what?

00:12:40--> 00:12:45

This is what happens. Each generation will take

00:12:46--> 00:12:57

the innovation to another level, and another level, and another level, until you got people standing in line in the grave. With a person's dead in the grave.

00:12:59--> 00:13:10

500 years ago, they buried shake, so and so here, and he has a wall, he have a law and blah, blah, blah, and let's all line up here and go to him and drop stuff into grave. And

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

have you heard about this?

00:13:16--> 00:13:23

And when you teach these children to do that, they will add something else to the same thing. Is that true or false?

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

You know, it's true.

00:13:28--> 00:13:39

And by the way, what happens if they exude exude that grade just to find out for sure who was really there, and they find out.

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

It wasn't even a human any way it was a camel or a donkey?

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

Oops.

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

And I know I'm gonna go out on some real

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

loose ground here when I say this.

00:13:59--> 00:14:07

But there are people all over this planet that have hairs that they go around with saying they have hair from the province of Iceland.

00:14:09--> 00:14:24

Now you've maybe you know, somebody that knows somebody that has three hairs or four hairs or five hairs. But in all the countries that I visited together, I found out there's enough hairs out there to cover an entire camel.

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

No, maybe they're all from the provinces. Now, I'm not saying I don't know. But for sure.

00:14:37--> 00:14:51

I'm not going to consider that hair to bring me any good luck or to keep anything away from me. Because the hair is in the creation and only the creator can do that. Is that true or false?

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Some of you you've known these things for years, but you just did.

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

You feel like going up against your grandparents, your uncle's, your fathers, you just let it go. You just be quiet and sit there quietly. And

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

well, you know,

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

but it's your obligation

00:15:17--> 00:15:22

in front of a law to make sure that these kiddos these youth

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

that they know the difference of what's real Islam

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

and what's not

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

as far as what group

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

it's okay to study

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

in the math have Ababa hanifa.

00:15:42--> 00:15:54

But you don't call yourself a hanafy because you're not, you're not from him. You're not one of these children. Just I studied it, I know that this is a good fit. We have some good information.

00:15:56--> 00:16:00

But if you said I'm a hanafy that somebody else said he's a sharpie.

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

Now you got an excuse to start fighting right away.

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

or wherever you put your hands when you pray.

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

Unhappy you came to pray.

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

I'm thrilled to death.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

You're in the frontline martial law.

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

So when Brennan puts his hands here, one bronze male one bottom there. I mean, you no

00:16:26--> 00:16:30

longer put him on his head. I think we need that.

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

And then this idea

00:16:36--> 00:16:39

when a brother is making mistakes,

00:16:40--> 00:16:51

who in this audience I see we got a pretty big audience here. Who in this audience is the the chef of Islam for India, the one who knows everything there is to know about Islam, which please raise your hand.

00:16:52--> 00:17:01

Maybe shake up maybe from the sisters, you know, everything there is to know about Islam now. Oh, okay. Let's good.

00:17:04--> 00:17:09

Unfortunately, in some machines, there are some people who think they know everything there is to know.

00:17:11--> 00:17:19

And maybe somebody he didn't pray before he wants to but it just been too nervous about it. You know, I didn't ever pray I need to start slow.

00:17:21--> 00:17:33

So fun is going to go into Masjid. And I'm gonna pray. Oh, he's been there and taraweeh you know, but not for real salon. Not for the obligatory salon. So he goes in, you know.

00:17:34--> 00:17:41

And as soon as he walks in group of brothers sitting there, look at him and go, stop for Allah. What did I do?

00:17:43--> 00:17:51

He came in on the wrong foot. He came in on the left, if you seen or stuck for a law.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

He didn't even know when you're looking at him. And he's like, what, what

00:17:56--> 00:18:04

I stand for now. Look at his pants. His parents are dragging underground stuff for a law.

00:18:07--> 00:18:07

He doesn't know.

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

Or right here in India, this happened in India became very famous in Texas because the brothers were telling everybody.

00:18:19--> 00:18:33

Some brothers from India came back to Gujarat to visit after many years. And then they came back to Texas and they were telling everybody about the incident. They said we went to pre us some of the afternoon prayer.

00:18:34--> 00:18:42

After the prayer, one brother, he turned to the other one and he said your prayer does not count. You have to pray again.

00:18:44--> 00:18:49

He said Why? You didn't have a coupie brother.

00:18:53--> 00:18:57

That really happened 10 years ago, right here in India.

00:18:58--> 00:19:07

The Ma'am, of the masjid went to the brother with the big mouth. He said excuse me.

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

When you came in the masjid.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

Did you ask anybody to come in with you to pray?

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

Did you see anybody you knew out there that wasn't praying? They said Yeah. Did you see any of our youth out there?

00:19:24--> 00:19:32

Did you ask them to come in and pray? No. He said but the one who did come in to pray. You try to scare him away.

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

Who do you work for?

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

Think about it.

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

It is the obligation of the knowledgeable brothers and sisters. Those who have real knowledge of Deen to politely take somebody aside and ask them if they would like to know how to worship Allah better.

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

That's how you started out.

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

You don't start out by saying

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

this is wrong.

00:20:10--> 00:20:16

And this is not the way Muhammad SAW Islam is it is it. Our youth cannot take this

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

today will either run away from Islam

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

or they'll get in one of the groups and be worse than the people that were starting the group in the first place.

00:20:29--> 00:20:35

Some of the most respected names, teachers and scholars in the last century

00:20:36--> 00:20:40

today are being mocked by people who claim they follow them.

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

They view

00:20:43--> 00:20:56

the youth 20 years ago who are listening to shake up the Aziz bin ballast Rahim Allah and Shaikh Mohammed Nasser de nada Bani Rahim Allah. They sat and they listened.

00:20:58--> 00:21:13

And then they went on to teach to the next generation, who then went on to teach to the next ones and the ones now today, they say check now the third said, and Jake Abdelaziz members said, and he said, No, this and that. And if you go back, and look,

00:21:15--> 00:21:20

he didn't say that. Or if he said it, he didn't say it the way that they interpreted.

00:21:21--> 00:21:24

What's going to happen? If we continue to do this,

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

we're gonna lose our kids.

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

And shaytan is going to be very happy.

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

Islam is something for everybody.

00:21:36--> 00:21:41

Not everybody's as great as you are. Not everybody's perfect like you are.

00:21:43--> 00:21:56

Some of us, we have faults. Some of us were miskeen in front of a wall. Some of us would like to worship below and learn without somebody cutting us down and making us feel like an idiot.

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

I'm your brother in Islam. You're my brother in Islam. Islam teaches me to respect you,

00:22:06--> 00:22:16

and give you all the honor and the dignity. And I must not scratch even the dignity of any person, Muslim or non Muslim. Is that true or false?

00:22:18--> 00:22:24

So how would you be in front of the people in front of the people? If I say something wrong, and you go, Oh,

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

don't know what you're talking about?

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

What will happen?

00:22:31--> 00:22:36

You discourage and chase away the lifeblood of the future of Islam.

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

Give them a chance.

00:22:41--> 00:22:52

And Allah says about this in the Quran, Coulton hi Roma, 10, okra, jetman necesita una bill my roof. What 10? How not on your own car? What do you know in a villa?

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

How many of you know this verse?

00:22:57--> 00:23:02

How many of you know the rest of the verse? That's not all of them. Anybody know the rest of it

And if the people of the book had believed in had a man or faith that would be better for them.

00:23:16--> 00:23:22

While men who from them are those who have imagined

00:23:25--> 00:23:29

a thorough momento possible but most of them are disobedient.

00:23:30--> 00:23:34

So this verse is talking about Jews and Christians

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

as well as Muslims

00:23:39--> 00:24:01

and showing us something very important. And whenever you do def serum or on you always go to karate for on first. And what we find in the Quran about the Jews and Christians regarding faith belief in Islam is encircled by enough well my homie row into the Jamba do another movie scene, Allahu Deena bonnafon while you came loose, allow you to see kind of what data could even tell you.

00:24:02--> 00:24:12

And the people before us were not ordered any more than to do this. Worship Allah alone without partners, like let alone

00:24:15--> 00:24:18

and keep the religion pure for him on a fine.

00:24:20--> 00:24:32

Why you came musalla and established this along. Why you to sucker and pay this account? Or Delica Dino came and this is the dean This is the way of it's most clear.

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

I love these children.

00:24:37--> 00:24:41

I love them so much. I want to see them have a chance.

00:24:43--> 00:24:48

And the only way they're going to get a decent chance is if you and I

00:24:49--> 00:25:00

begin to really learn Deen from Quran and Sunnah and stop dividing up into these groups. And stop insulting

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

each other, and cutting each other down.

00:25:04--> 00:25:18

Our Prophet sallallahu wasallam was asked about this subject exactly who is a Muslim and who's not. Somebody wants to know, what makes this guy a Muslim or not a Muslim. He said, Whoever says law, law law.

00:25:20--> 00:25:23

And faces are Kibler in salon

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

00:25:42--> 00:25:46

send me an email, send me an email, and we'll find out.

00:25:47--> 00:25:53

If their x is really wrong, if their y is really bad, and if the Z is really out of Islam.

00:25:55--> 00:26:03

It is same time maybe they're doing ABC that you don't do and you've lost some of your deen by not knowing about it.

00:26:05--> 00:26:46

I promise you, there's no group, it's perfect out there. It can't be because resource us a lot more you told us about that. Except the roles who are not in these groups, just plain Muslim. Now, having said that, there are organizations that all of us think highly of and I'm not talking about that. An organization to help the children and organization for the orphans in organization for education, an organization that brings about brotherly love and understanding. Yes. But as soon as you get a name on there, and it has a different system of belief or action.

00:27:14--> 00:27:19

these are the different groups going out of Islam.

00:27:23--> 00:27:29

What do I want to be in? Muslim, Muslim, Muslim.

00:27:31--> 00:27:35

And I want this for you for me and for our children for the future of Islam.
