00:00:03--> 00:00:40

spinout hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah hamdulillah him then you also in your Emma who you go film as either or SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in more Allah early he was such a big marine Allah who live Nama and pharaoh now on phantom limb Tina, was it an arrangement? Yeah Kareem Corbishley surgery was silly Emory. Melissa Ania bajo Kohli or visit near Illman or visit near ailment or visit near Alma Hola, hola. Hola Ilana Jota who Salah wanted to General has an either shader Salah okay we're starting from verse number 151 151 solo to the Bacara 151.

00:00:42--> 00:01:07

Allah says gamma or selling fee como Rasulullah min commute lower Aleikum. Tina. Why use a key como your limo communicator that will hikma while you're a limo commander? I'm technology Alamo. Again, verse number 151 151. Allah says gamma or Santa Fe como Rasulillah. Just as we also sent a messenger

00:01:09--> 00:01:46

to you from you as well. Now who is this messenger, obviously Allah is speaking to the kuffaar of Quraysh. And the messenger that Allah is talking about is our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And there are two things that Allah says about this messenger. Number one, he is sent to them. Number two, he is from them as well. Okay. And this is a very important factor. Whenever a messenger comes from the people themselves, obviously, Allah only sends messengers that are able to speak in the tongue of the people, right, as Allah told us in the Quran, as well, they are able to comprehend what he's saying.

00:01:47--> 00:02:23

This is very important because you know, Subhan Allah, we do see this problem, as I would say, almost a pandemic, across North America and across all of the countries where Muslims are living as diasporas because we end up importing the shoe. And they are not able to comprehend the people. And they are not able to speak to the people so they don't understand the problems of the people. And they're not able to address the people in a way that they're going to be able to understand as well. This problem is generally not there in most of the world, except where Muslims lives, live as a diaspora small groups, pockets of people, whether it be North America, whether it be parts of

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

Europe, and sometimes what happens is even the Catawba is done in Arabic or in order.

00:02:29--> 00:03:18

And so the people they're not going to be able to understand what is being said. If you're addressing people that speak English, you're gonna have to speak English. If you're addressing people that speak you know, Japanese, you're going to have to speak Japanese that will be what will allow people to comprehend the message. Otherwise, a you will not understand the people be they will not understand you. So how is the message going to really be delivered? So Allah says, just as we send a messenger within you from you, yes, Lu Aleikum. Tina, what does he do? These ayat, they recur in multiple places in the Quran? I want you to think with me very carefully what Allah is saying is

00:03:18--> 00:03:50

the task of the messenger. Okay, number one, he recites upon you His ayat. So the first thing is simply reciting the Quran, especially as he was brought to a people who understood Arabic or understand Arabic. And hence, they were able to understand the message just by hearing the message. But Allah says that if we were to reveal this Quran upon people who are non Arab, they would not be believers within this Quran. This is very important, by the way, this other verse that I just quoted, why?

00:03:51--> 00:04:41

Well, because sometimes, and I have to deal with this as well, sometimes when we're addressing people who cannot speak Arabic, we try to deliver the linguistic miracle of the Quran. But the reality is, you can never understand the linguistic miracle of the Quran. Unless you know Arabic and be you know it really well. So that linguistic miracle is not going to be comprehensible. And that's why the prophet is just simply reciting these ayat Allah as ayat Allah signs, Allah causes versus signs. But when we do the task of delivering the message, we can't simply just recite it on because we have to explain what this Quran says. Otherwise, people are not going to believe just by simply

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

hearing the message because it's in another language, they won't be able to see the beauty within it, they won't be able to see the miracle within it. This is something that Allah literally says in the Quran, if we were to give it about an algae, I mean, they would not become people who are believers in the Quran. Okay, so the Prophet Yes, he's simply reciting the Quran.

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

upon the Sahaba, and that's enough for them to accept Islam and that's enough for these ayat, to be ayat. But know that our task is to give people these ayat and the understanding of the ayat as well. And then what does he do? Well, he was a key comb and he purifies you as well. He purifies you. So number one, the prophets task is to purify the people. Number two, His task is to teach the people what does he teach the people two things al Kitab. He teaches them while you are Lemo, qumulex kitasato and hekman. He teaches you the book, the Quran, and he teaches you the hekman as well the wisdom what is the wisdom or either sunnah of the Prophet this is what most of the scholars they

00:05:42--> 00:06:26

say, because what is the prophet teach that people he taught them the Quran and he taught them also the Sunnah. So within this you can see all of the tasks of the Prophet in terms of delivering the message. A he is doing Teskey of the people, he is purifying their souls. And I said this last time we came across a similar verses Well, this is the reason why I did Friday nights the Quran, Sun Saturday nights, the Hadith, and the hotbar is that Ischia? This is all the tasks of the Prophet us Akiko me gives you this Kia he teaches you how to purify yourselves and better yourselves while you're a limo. Kumar Kitab he teaches you the Quran and he teaches you the Sunnah while a committer

00:06:26--> 00:07:03

while you are Lemo commanded them to cool Nutella moon and he teaches you from this Quran and from his sunnah things that you don't even know. You never knew before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam he came to teach you these things. So any there? Yeah, and this is a message for people who want to call to Allah. If you ever want to call to Allah. These are the three main tasks that you need to do. You need to teach people how to make themselves better people. Number one, you need to teach them what the Quran says. Number two, you need to teach three you need to teach the people what the Sunnah says. And this is simply the task of the Prophet SAW Selim, expressed in more than

00:07:03--> 00:07:08

one place in the Quran, while you are living in Cumberland, Dakota, Alamo.

00:07:09--> 00:07:40

Fifth Curonian so since we send this messenger to you who did all of these things, he would recite the verses upon you, he would purify you, he would teach you the book, he will teach you the ACHEMA and he will teach you things that you didn't even know first koroni Then remember me? Remember me? Because I've been so kind to you. I've given you a prophet who teaches you who gives you the understanding who explains to you what the Quran says the Prophet literally used to explain to the Sahaba what the Quran says

00:07:41--> 00:08:11

the accumulated a hadith of the prophets and settle them that are authentically reported from him. Right? In the Quran in terms of the Quran there are approximately 1000 a hadith okay? Now these are Hadith are not sometimes their directive seed of the Quran, and sometimes they're not directive see, there are, you know, the Prophet was making a comment and the aroma they connected it together with the IRA. Okay, so they're around 1000, a hadith. These are the words of the Prophet in which the prophet is explaining what the Quran says.

00:08:12--> 00:08:39

However, the rest of the Quran the Prophet didn't necessarily he may have explained in other parts of the Quran as well but the Prophet never had to explain the other parts of the Quran why? Because the Sahaba they understood the first task was he would just recite the verses upon the Sahaba they understand because they understand the Arabic language for koroni. So remember me also have a remember me as good come and when you do that, I will also remember you what does this mean?

00:08:40--> 00:09:20

This is actually found in a hadith in Muslims of Imam Muhammad and also sunnah Telemedia and it's authentic hadith, that the prophets Allah Allahu Allah said, Let me said that Allah said this is one of those a hadith which is a Hadith could see a hadith which Allah is speaking in, and the Prophet is paraphrasing and explaining to us when it comes to the Quran, Allah speaks and the prophet does not paraphrase, he gives it to us verbatim. Whereas when it comes to the Hadith that are cozzia, they are meant to simply be reported in meaning and generally a hadith are recorded in meaning most of that hadith, unless they are recurringly, with the same wording, most of them are recorded in

00:09:20--> 00:10:00

meaning anyways, okay, so these are the words of Allah azza wa jal, which is not to be considered Quran, what does Allah say? Allah said, Men, the Koran if enough see whoever remembers me inside of his soul, that girl to who Fein FC, I will also remember him within me as well. So when you sit there just thinking about Allah azza wa jal, Allah also thinks about you this is the Hadith Bootsy authentic just by sitting thinking about Allah you know, you may have someone beloved in your life and you think oh, I'm your thoughts begin to wonder and you start to think of them and maybe the thought comes to you, are they also thinking of me as well just as much as

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

I think of them. But Allah tells you quite clearly when you sit there thinking of me My names, my attributes, my power, my majesty, my sovereignty, my benevolence, my kindness, my ability to bring you to account as well. All of these things when you think of them, Allah also thinks of you as well.

00:10:24--> 00:11:02

Then the Prophet continued, and he said that Allah said, Woman that Karani female, a meanness, and whoever mentioned me, in front of a gathering of people Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, how kind is Allah? How beautiful is Allah? How benevolent is Allah whenever you make such comments, they don't go in vain. They don't go wasted. The Prophet said that Allah said whoever does such a thing. I also mentioned him fee mela in exaro aglia Berman, I mentioned him in a gathering which is larger.

00:11:04--> 00:11:44

We're living in a time where everybody wants to get mentioned right. Give me a mentioned give me a shout out. So Allah is saying if you mentioned Allah, Allah will mentioned you, you will get a special mention from Allah subhanho wa taala. Right. And it won't be mentioned in a small gathering it will be mentioned in a very large gathering and a more beautiful gathering, a more pure gathering, a gathering in which the angels of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada are. So when Allah is saying Fez, Guney as quote, come, remember me and I will remember you every single time you remember ALLAH, ALLAH is there to remember you as well. And which one of us doesn't want to be remembered by Allah?

00:11:44--> 00:12:25

Think about it. When you remembered by Allah, what do you think Allah is going to do to you? Allah literally said, there's a hadith that Maya Rama has outdone my wrath. So when Allah is remembering you, do you think he's going to remember to punish you? Or he's going to remember to be merciful to you. When Allah is remembering you, and you're remembering Allah, the Quran by itself is an act of worship and Allah has said in the Quran, in Al Hasan RTU, the Vanessa yard, good deeds they ended up doing away with evil deeds. So what do you think Allah will be doing to you when he remembers you? He will obviously be raising your ranks forgiving your sins, giving you a better place in Jana. This

00:12:25--> 00:12:44

is Allah Subhana Allah remembering a person and here I'll stop and see one thing, a very beautiful method of Abdullah had been Masuda the Allahu Allah, Allah know, in which he said that whoever is granted for things he took all of this from the Quran, all of the knowledge is in the whole, whoever

00:12:46--> 00:13:36

is get granted for things. Whoever is granted for things he will be granted another four as well. Meaning whoever does these four things, he will be given another four. And he quoted the verses, he says, Allah says, First Caroni ethical can you remember me? I will also remember you so whenever you remember ALLAH, ALLAH is going to remember you. Allah says who the Rooney SDG bellicum Call out to me and I will respond to your call. So when you make dua to Allah, Allah azza wa jal doesn't let your dog go in vain. Rather he responds to that dua. And he continued, he said that whoever is thankful to Allah Subhana Allah he's granted even more well in Shackleton as Eden Nick, when you are

00:13:36--> 00:14:19

grateful to Allah, Allah says, I will definitely over shorter TV granting you even more. And even miss Rudy continued and he said woman or ugly is still far and whoever is granted the ability to seek forgiveness from Allah azza wa jal, Allah will give Him forgiveness. I ask Allah to remember us. I asked Allah to accept our two hours and I asked Allah to give us an increase in our Ask Allah who is that he was able to accept ourselves far as well. When you do one of these four things, Allah will never let them go in vain. Allah continued in the verse and he said, wash guru li wala took foreign so the opposite of sugar is cover

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

and be grateful to me. And don't be ungrateful to me. What does this mean?

00:14:29--> 00:14:41

There are two different types of cover. There is one type of cover, which is literally disbelieve, you have now left the fold of Islam I ask Allah to protect you and I Allahumma me

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

and then there is another type of cover, which is not the cover of Allah, but it's the cover of the new armor of Allah. It's when you are ungrateful you do goofer which means being ungrateful of all of the blessings of Allah subhana wa taala. So this is one type of good

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

So, this is the cover on nema. This is when a person disregards the NEMA The blessings of Allah azza wa jal. You don't think about the eyes that you've been granted. You know, how many people do you speak to? And they're always complaining. Look around you. Ask yourself before you look at anybody else, how often do we end up complaining? Everybody's complaining no matter what you've been granted. Wallahi Honey, we're living in lives in this country that is more comfortable than 99% of humanity or 95% of humanity. You don't have much to be ungrateful about. There is no wars around you. You can walk to the mall, you can walk to the masjid, you can pray to Allah azza wa jal and

00:15:44--> 00:16:14

feel secure, you can ensure that every single night you're going to get food, you know that you're going to get clothing, you know, you have shelter on top of your head, you know, you can drive, it's come down to this, that you choose where you want to live. Because you know, you're gonna have a shelter in all cases, you decide, Oh, this one, I don't like it too much. The neighborhood is not the right one. I want to live over here, this house, this apartment, the building is not good enough for my standards. You choose what you want.

00:16:15--> 00:16:49

The car, you decide what you want. The jobs even that sometimes you're like, I have three jobs presented to me, I'm going to pick which one to take. Right, depending on your situation. I'm not saying everybody has every one of these numbers, but all of us have ample Neerim that other people do not have. We have so much to be grateful to Allah azza wa jal for that if we were to say Alhamdulillah at every single moment of our lives, Allah He would not be enough. But remember that just by saying, Alhamdulillah you're doing two things, okay.

00:16:50--> 00:17:17

Number one, you are filling up your skill with good deeds. The prophets have said, Let me set what Subhan Allah, He will have to rely on them learn every single time you say subhanallah And Alhamdulillah, they fill up your skill of good deeds. That's the first thing. The second thing is you're protecting your Nirma This is a principle that every time you're grateful to Allah, you protect and lock in that number.

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

And when you do go through Nirma, Allah azza wa jal

00:17:23--> 00:18:03

gets rid of that number. So when you're thankful, as a bare minimum, you are locking your name and you're ensuring that this is something that's not going to leave for me because you're, you've done the heck you've done that you have that nirvana of that blessing, you are being grateful to Allah for that blessing. You're as a bare minimum locking it in and more than that is Allah said that as Eden, Allah is going to increase you as well. So you're locking the base of your namah and you're also getting a surplus as well. You're getting even more. But if you're ungrateful, well I took for all that Allah azza wa jal gets rid of that one Yama at a time. I ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah to

00:18:03--> 00:18:14

allow us to live through NEMA in this world and be grateful to him for those near him as well. Yeah, your loving man Oh, who you believe is there in all the sub areas salah.

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

Seek help.

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

Through patience and also through prayer as well. patience and prayer is the way that you seek help from Allah azza wa jal if you seek aid from Allah azza wa jal, because it's only anything you want to do in life. If you really want to get somewhere What do you have to do, you have to have patience, you have to be able to persevere. If you're trying to accomplish graduating from a university, you're going to have to work hard, if you're trying to get that job, you're going to have to work hard. So patience, is that one thing that's going to help you in all the scopes of life and in addition to that, Allah also helps a person through the patients as well, whilst salaat and

00:18:56--> 00:19:09

also prayer. Prayer is one of those things that allows you to CLI if you do it, right, that is, allows you to go to the highest degrees in anything in life. Why?

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

When you start your prayer, what do you say?

00:19:14--> 00:19:23

What do you say? You say, Allahu Akbar, when the more than he gives the Athan, what does he say? Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest.

00:19:24--> 00:19:45

And throughout your prayer, what are you doing? You're expressing the greatness of Allah even when you're sitting in the yard. Greetings B to Allah or greatness B to Allah, that V max dilla. Great. So what are you doing throughout your prayer? you're training yourself that the greatest entity out there is Allah Allah, Allah azza wa jal.

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

So when you know that you have Allah on your side,

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

then you know you're going to be able to overcome everything. There's a psychological aspect of this as well. When you really do your prayer, right

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

it recognize that Allah is the Greatest, every great thing starts to seem insignificant within the world, and you're able to achieve it. Whether it be memorizing the Quran, whether it be graduating from university, whether it be, you know, running a marathon, whatever you want to do you know, that Allah is the Greatest and Allah can give you a portion of that greatness, every significant thing within this world, it begins to seem insignificant and you don't really feel that hardship any longer. In Allah Azza beteen. Allah is with the patient. And if you're, if Allah is with the patient, then would you think Allah is going to let you lose? No, everything you do, Allah will make

00:20:41--> 00:21:27

you win, because Allah is by your side. While the who remain Yokota, Luffy Cybil Allah He am what? And don't say about those people who end up dying in the path of Allah azza wa jal, that they're simply that people, they're not dead. Allah is saying the people in the grave, especially the shahada, especially the martyrs, they have a special form of life and the Gambia, as well, there's a hadith about that, that the, that the MBR, the prophets of God, they also have a special form of life within. And everybody actually has a special form of life which is known as Barza, the life of the bursa. So Allah is saying, don't assume them to be simply dead and gone, and that's it. They've

00:21:27--> 00:22:11

wasted their lives. Why did they end up killing themselves for nothing? No, no, no, no, no. These are people who are very well alive. In the sight of Allah azza wa jal, the Prophet told us in a hadith, and this hadith is reported by Timothy in his sunnah and he also graded it authentic as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that in Ottawa has shown her that if you play it and hold it in, there are no common similarities. Jana ShoreTel Jana, that the souls of the martyrs, they are in green were birds, and they hang from the fruits of Jannah. So they're alive. Allah azza wa jal gives them a new form of life. That's the only difference. And this is very

00:22:11--> 00:22:15

important, because sometimes you actually hear this type of comment.

00:22:16--> 00:22:51

You hear this type of comment, they're dead, they're gone. Why did they waste their lives? Now, of course, we have to confirm that the person was actually fighting in the path of Allah. And he was not doing it because of this group and that group, and he wasn't doing it because of because a lot of what's happening within the world today, when it comes to what they people call jihad is really sectarianism, sectarian violence, it's, it's people breaking into different groups and Muslims against Muslims, and they're basically fighting for no reason, a lot of what is happening within the world. But that doesn't mean the opposite is also not there. Right? There are people who are

00:22:51--> 00:23:29

fighting for the cause of Allah azza wa jal within this world as well. Palestine for instance, is a cause from the causes of Allah. Kashmir, for instance, is a cause from the causes of Allah. So there are people that are legitimately out there protecting the lands of the Muslim protecting the oppressed human beings within the world. That same thing goes with other places as well. So the point is that not everything is going to be that as people claim to be for Allah will be for Allah. And by the way, I talked about this in more detail in the Buhari lecture. So you can listen to that it's available on YouTube as well. Lima, you potato FISA Villa here and what? Well here on wala

00:23:29--> 00:23:32

Killa, Sharon, but rather they are alive.

00:23:33--> 00:24:05

And you are not noticing you can tell that they're alive. And as I said this life, the life of the Barza How did the Prophet describe it for the shahada, the Hadith, the Greenberg's, right, but this life of the Barossa of the grave is there for everybody. Everybody's alive in the grave. When you die, you're also alive you but you're in a new form of life, the MBI they're alive. There's a specific Hadith about that as well. Right? But this is another type of life. This is a life after this. Okay, this is the hierarchy al Barza.

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

Well enable one

00:24:09--> 00:24:27

be che in mental health, and we're going to test you with a little bit of fear while judo and also hunger while that person meanwhile Mr. Lee will enforce and a decrease from your wealth and also your souls with some rot and fruits or a bedsheet a slob. 18

00:24:28--> 00:24:44

and give the glad tidings to those people who are patient. Allah told you to seek help through patients. Now Allah is going to tell you how you be patient. Okay? So Allah says, we're going to test you, you can rest assured that this life is going to have a lot of tests.

00:24:46--> 00:25:00

Every aspect of this life is test. This is a DOM that that is known as the data live data, the data of tests, the life of tests, so every aspect of this life is going to be a test you are tested by your children to see if you're going to

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

Be patient or you're going to lose your pools, you are your, your parents are going to test you as well, to see if you're going to be obedient, or you're not going to be obedient, you are tested by your spouses, you're tested by your employers, you're tested by your employees, you're tested by the greater society. So there's going to be aspects of tests in every which way within this life. And there's a way a system by which you're supposed to react. One of the elements of this system is you're supposed to have patience, okay? You don't lose your Kools you're supposed to have patience, the Prophet said of several dia, when you do that, then you become an ill illuminated human being

00:25:38--> 00:26:25

because patients gives you Illuminations, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also said that our Sadhguru in the submittal, Allah, when is it, that the real patience is there at the beginning? Some people they basically, at the moment of truth, yell, scream, shout, throw a tantrum. And then afterwards, a day or two later, they go back to normal and every all of the feelings are gone. And they say, but I've now settled down, right? No, no, no, no, no, you're not really being patient. The real test of patience was when you were tried. If you weren't able to pass that test, you haven't passed the test of patience. The real test of patience is when you are tried, well, sabe Dena, Phil

00:26:25--> 00:26:41

back, say, what the ROI what renal backs, and the people who are patient in the hardship in difficult times, at the moment of truth, at the moment of difficulty, at the moment of chaos, at the moment of, of pain,

00:26:42--> 00:27:04

but not afterwards, because that's when a person is really tried. That's when the person is really trusted, tested. And this is what Allah says this versus well, he says llbean either Asaba Tomasi, but who are the people who are patient, the ones that when they are afflicted with a difficulty at that moment, they are patient.

00:27:05--> 00:27:44

So the only way we're going to be able to have this type of patience, is if we allow ourselves to take a moment to think about how we're reacting. A lot of times, people are reactionary, because they don't allow themselves to think about how to react, give yourself a moment, think about the situation. When you evaluate any situation. And you think about the consequences. At that moment, you're going to be able to come up with a good plan on how to make the best of this circumstance. But because we just want whatever is for us at that moment, when we see that difficulty come upon us.

00:27:45--> 00:28:25

As I said, People react in different ways. Some people, their real truth comes out, some people will start cursing and swearing and you know, f this f that, and this is what's going to happen, this is the reality of who they are. So this is how they're going to react. Other people, they're going to be a little bit more calm. But they're still going to be harsh, and they're going to lose it a little bit. They might not use, you know, profanity, but they have other ways of venting out as well. Other people, they'll start to cry and lose sense of reality as well. But if you just take a step back for a second, look at the situation, take a bird's eye view, and think about the

00:28:25--> 00:29:05

consequences and how you can make the most of the situation when you do that. That will allow you most of the times your problems will be solved. But when you throw that tantrum, when you start using profanity, when you start physically abusing as well, most likely the problem is going to get greater and greater. So Allah says we're going to test people because of fear. And that's one of the things that people are tested by and anxiety and, you know, loss of sleep, insomnia, all sorts of things happen, because of fear. So Allah says, that's a test. You have to know how to deal with it. What is your and it's also hunger because of hunger, people end up stealing, do you have to eat

00:29:05--> 00:29:48

everything, you can live in a very little bit of food. And that little bit, I think that in most places, except for places that are very poor, that are very impoverished, in most places in the world, you can get that little bit of food and the Prophet said, it's sufficient for us child of Adam, that he just eats a few bites you can swallow but who that can make them stand up. So if you cannot find the X amount of food that we're all used to, if you can't find that, then try to train yourself to just have that little bit. When you do that, then you won't lose the test. That joueur that hunger that comes. People end up losing that test at the moment of hunger as well. The prophets

00:29:48--> 00:29:55

Allah Allahu Allah said, let me start sought refuge also from furcal Moon see with the Quran, Moon sia and also

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

poverty that makes you lose track of reality.

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

Read the poverty that makes you forget. So when you're going through that poverty, you cannot find food to eat, people do all sorts of things, to take themselves out of poverty, things that are immoral as well. Wonderful see menial. And while you will enforce what we're Thammarat, and also decrease in wealth and unfocused, and your lives as well, what happens when people lose wealth,

00:30:27--> 00:30:31

there are people who literally end up killing themselves.

00:30:33--> 00:30:42

There are people who literally end up killing themselves. And I personally, you know, multiple stories, that of people who killed themselves, but of people who basically lost it after they lost their wealth and their fortune,

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

you know,

00:30:45--> 00:30:48

number of people, people who are on a lot of height,

00:30:50--> 00:30:56

all of the height finished within their lives, because they lost the wealth and the fortune that they had.

00:30:58--> 00:31:10

So Allah is testing people with decrease in wealth as well, that's a test. You could have everything going for yourself, you could have a great resume, you have every single, you know,

00:31:11--> 00:31:35

reason to believe that you're going to have a stable source of income throughout your life life, something goes wrong, a tornado and natural disaster. You know, whatever happens, even if you have insurance, the insurance company files, you know, a bankruptcy or whatever else and you're lost. Now, everything that you had secured, it's all gone. It's finished, right before you all of it has finished, how are you going to react?

00:31:36--> 00:31:46

How are you going to react? There are some people who are going to react with patience, others will lose it. There was on students of knowledge that

00:31:47--> 00:31:58

I was aware of a very good student of knowledge, would be learning and, and teaching and dedicating his life. But he'd made some investments.

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

And subhanAllah

00:32:02--> 00:32:04

something went wrong. This was maybe 1015 years ago,

00:32:05--> 00:32:09

something went wrong. And he lost all of his money.

00:32:10--> 00:32:30

And will Allah He this man, he went into an anxious state that he could no longer open a book of, he could not look no longer open the Quran to read, because his heart was so connected to the dunya that he got disconnected as soon as the dunya left his heart in his hand.

00:32:31--> 00:33:11

The prophet had wealth in portions of his life, but he was not connected to that wealth. He had disconnected his heart from that wealth. He had wealth. At moments in his life. The Prophet was married to a woman who is a millionaire Khadija and I tried to trace down where the money of Khadija went. She gifted all of that money to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he used it in his Dawa sallallahu alayhi wasallam so he had a lot of money at that point. He was married to Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, Allah Anna, whose father was also a millionaire. Literally the Hadith says that Abu Bakr was at your Quraysh

00:33:13--> 00:33:27

his son in law with man was also a multimillionaire as well. But the prophet never allowed for this to enter his heart nor did any of them when Abu Bakar took the hill after he stopped business

00:33:29--> 00:33:39

and at that point I needed something and he reminded her he said your father No longer is into this stuff anymore he does can handle this right because now he's just getting a salary as a Khalifa that's it

00:33:41--> 00:33:53

so the point is that these people they had money but they never connected their hearts to it you have to disconnect yourself from this wealth one brother from your heart. So when you lose it you don't lose yourself.

00:33:54--> 00:34:36

Many people you know the stories aren't your own as well. who lose their minds when they lose their wealth. Well best shade a slob it in and also sometimes people will lose, family members will enforce. And when you go to graveyards and you see sometimes how people are reacting literally the Prophet forbade us from slapping your cheeks and ripping your clothes as well. I've literally seen this error Janaza hair in admitted here. I've seen it with my own eyes before that Allah had never saw it in my life. And then I understood the hikma why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade from this slapping the cheeks and ripping up your shirts. Why? Because you lost someone.

00:34:36--> 00:34:49

Why? Do you think that this is the only life and there is no afterlife and you'll never get to see that special person of yours? No. If it's a child, there's going to be an afterlife and he will be there for you waiting.

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

He'll be there for you as a chef here.

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

If it's a husband, do hire in his name. Let his status go up in Jannah and you will

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

also be with him and Jana.

00:35:03--> 00:35:42

If it's apparent, the prophets of Allah who I think was said, Let me told us that one of the investments that apparently is behind as a child, so do good for your parents, so that you see them in Jannah as well. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to unite us with our loved ones in Ghana. I mean, what's the Murat and also the fruits and vegetables in the vegetations? Well, this Sheetal Siberian, and give glad tidings to the people who are patient, who are the people who are patient, the people who are patient are the ones and Allah describes them. Now here, I'm going to pause and say something very important when you're reading the Quran, okay? And I've made a glossary actually of

00:35:42--> 00:35:50

the Quran like this, of different things. By the way I do this, you can also try it as well, that as I'm reading the Quran,

00:35:51--> 00:36:15

I make glossaries. Okay, it helps me also in my lectures as well, you know, because then I have all of the things that I want to talk about gathered together in one place, all of the things I want to ponder, gather together in one place. So one of the things that you can do is the Quranic definitions, and I've made a glossary of the Quranic definitions as well because in many places, Allah says a word and then he defines it as well.

00:36:16--> 00:36:47

So when Allah is defining something, obviously that's going to be the best definition or one aspect of the definition because sometimes you have to be cognizant that Allah is not just defining the entire reality of that word, but a very important aspect of it as well. Right? So here when Allah is saying, Well, best shade of slavery in give glad tidings to the people who are patient, Allah says L Lavina, either of Sabah Tomasi bathroom Kalu. In LA, he were in LA, he, Roger all

00:36:48--> 00:36:54

those people who eat when they are afflicted with a calamity at the moment of truth.

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

At that moment,

00:36:58--> 00:37:15

what did they say? In the law he were in either he'll train yourself to do that, and believe in what you're saying, We belong to Allah azza wa jal, and to Him, we will be returning. Because any calamity that you have in this life,

00:37:17--> 00:37:41

it's going to be temporary. If you look at this world, by the way, and you start from the beginning of the world, okay, and you go, let's say it's 5000 years, or it's more or less, or whatever it may be whatever estimates people have out there, and you look at the timeframe that you got to live in, which is 6065 years, how long would that timeframe be?

00:37:43--> 00:38:21

On honestly, on a graph, it won't even be a dot, a timeframe that you and I will get to live. So the reality of this world is that it's not even a.in the entire time frame of this world. Now let's go one step higher, how long will the hereafter be? Eternal. So when you put any neck number next to eternality, what happens? It immediately shrinks to zero. So you're 63 years that you get to live 6465 70 years that you get to live 7580, even 90?

00:38:22--> 00:38:30

Nobody, not many people will live past that. That would be literally absolutely nothing when you compare it to infinity.

00:38:32--> 00:39:05

So when you're reminding yourself that you belong to Allah, you're basically telling yourself that anything that happens to me within this world, it's not worth crying over because at the end of the day, that calamity took something from me and also I will be going to Allah azza wa jal as well. I asked him why Subhan Allah to Allah to allow us to be people of patients, I mean, and allow us to be people who are patient at the moment of truth, who understand that the real patients are only is only manifested when the person is tested and at the moment of the test.

00:39:07--> 00:39:13

Just like Kamala has done for listening with some Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in wahala early he was good to be here Jemaine
