we hear of atrocities being committed.
not having enough food to eat.
We hear people
fleeing countries and towns
where their houses have been destroyed.
Many people are being tested by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Many people in the world are being tested.
There was a brother
who left Syria.
And he saw and he was given a piece of bread.
And seeing that piece of bread, tears came down his eyes
for three months, for for three months.
He had not seen
and had not eaten anything fresh.
tears came down his eyes
because he was thankful for a piece of bread.
Every single day.
There are people
who are making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala who are supplicating to Allah subhanho wa Taala
for the things we take for granted every moment in our lives,
they're making to offer what we have and take for granted.
That which we don't even think about.
yet they're making to offer some of those things
that we have every day and every moment in our lives.
They are being tested by Allah subhanho wa Taala
but what we
often don't realize is that we also are being tested by Allah subhana wa panna
they are being tested.
With trials and tribulations and hardships.
The test and the trials and tribulations of hardship. But we are being tested. Most of us are being tested with the trials and tribulations of prosperity.
Most people don't consider that a test. A lot of hand what the IRS says back then the rules are below him in a Tanya regime. When a blue company shortly will hiree fitna,
we test you
with sharp with bad meaning hardships and difficulties and fire and good goodness and prosperity. We test you with both of these things.
What you lay Nataraja rune and unto us shall be your return.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala is testing us also
to see whether we're thankful or not.
The deciding determining factor, when we're tested with prosperity, of whether we pass or not, is whether we're thankful for the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has bestowed upon us bestowed upon us or not.
Allah subhanho wa Taala
is testing many of us.
And which of the two tests are more difficult to pass? Many scholars have mentioned
that when a person is tested with hardships and difficulties, they're more likely to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala. But those who are tested with prosperity, they are less likely to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said lol factor of chalet come, it is not it is not poverty that I fear for you.
It is not poverty, that I fear for you. But I fear that the dunya will be opened up for you.
This worldly life
will be opened up for you
and you will compete for it. Just like others before you competed for it, and it will destroy you just like it destroyed them.
So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it is not poverty that he fears for us. But what he fears is
all the blessings being bestowed upon us yet we're not thankful for those blessings. So how can we show that we're thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the blessings that we have
any of the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has bestowed upon us, we should be thankful for them.
By using those blessings in the obedience of Allah subhana wa to Allah. If Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us health. And well,
then we should use the energy and the strength that we have to be at to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and to be at the service of others.
And if Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us wealth
and prosperity, then which use we should use those blessings and spend it in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala by spending in that which Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with.
Often we don't realize how great these blessings are, until they're gone.
And that is why the Arabs they say
a Say hi to telogen Allah Rue de
la Yahoo lol marva.
Health is like a crown on the heads of all those who are healthy. Nobody sees it, except for those who are sick.
the health that we have.
Nobody sees it except for those who are sick.
And that's why we should take time
to visit those who are sick,
to be thankful for the blessings that we have,
until also to take time to go visit the grave. So that we are thankful for the life that we have, so that we can use what we have in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and take advantage of it.
So that we can be reminded of the hereafter.
And that's why
one of the most beneficial
one of the scholars or before
I reflected on I was reflecting upon
the different types of applications.
And I was thinking about what is the best of all of these applications. And he said
and I came to the conclusion that it is the UI that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talked to the companions when he said
to one of them new double rhodiola and he said, oh boy
in your head book, surely I love
fellated Atlanta cool. So never forget. And do not leave this do i
do borough police police Allah at the end of every prayer alone
home in Niala, deca washoku Erica was Nevada tech. Oh Allah helped me to remember you
helped me to remember you and to be thankful to you and to perfect my worship of you.
Think about this.
When we go through difficulties,
one of the most beneficial things you can do is to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And also to be thankful for actually the blessings that you have
and of course, to try to perfect your worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala
For indeed all emotional scars
with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and remembering and being thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala is not just a thing we should do once in a while.
It is a continuous process, to always be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for what we have. And if we're thankful for something, then Allah subhanho wa Taala increases it for us. Alpha Yama, Yama, he said Allah can be more lezama tissue can continue to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. I like him be Manasa mata shokri Allah neon. Continue to be thankful to Allah for the blessings that you have the Kundalini Ramadan zealot and Tao mean, that Li him for rarely is a blessing taken away from a people and then returned to them.
Rarely is a blessing, taken away from the people and then returned to them. So be thankful for the blessings that we have in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He used to stand up in prayer until his feet were swollen.
Ayesha herati Allahu Allah, she said to him,
O Messenger of Allah, O Messenger of Allah.
Allah has already forgiven your past
and future sins. In other words,
take it easy.
Allah has already given you a forgiven for your past and future sins.
And why are you doing this standing up to the point where your feet are swollen?
And the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He said,
If Allah akuna abdeen Shakira, should I not be a faithful servant of Allah?
Should I not be a faithful servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning Allah subhana wa tada forgave me. forgive, forgive has forgiven from me all my past and future sins, of course has given me guidance and made me a prophet and messenger of God and so forth. Should I not be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning
when you're thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala you increase in your worship of Allah subhana wa tada and Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue to give you more weather in Chicago, that as he didn't know, if you were to be thankful, then I will increase it for you. Allah subhanho wa Taala will continue to give us more.
So I said that Allah Subhana tests us with trials and tribulations. It also tests us with prosperity.
There is nothing wrong with having wealth. There's nothing wrong with being rich,
as long as you're thankful for them.
And that's why I broke the law. But he said no to the room dounia shachar to move
anything of this dunya will not harm you mean a massive wealth and so forth. Having all of that will not harm you if you're thankful for that.
And so be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala
by spending and what we're spending what we have in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala when we're thankful for the children that we have, when you come in our houses and we see our beautiful, beautiful smiles on our children's faces, we should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala by teaching to be obedient to Allah, teaching them to be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala
teaching them to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala properly and if we do that Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless what we have, when we're thankful for them.
And whenever you are confronted with sins, think about the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given to you think about all of those things. And that's when the Prophet Yusuf Allah, He said on
When he was confronted with sins, when that sin was right in front of him, and he was asked to do that which was hot on, he says,
He said I seek refuge in a law, because no one can help you abstain and stay away from sins except Allah subhanho wa Taala. So seek help from Him alone
in warabi cinema.
Surely he My Lord, meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala
has given me so much has provided provided me with so much.
So, when you're confronted with sins, think about the blessings that Allah subhana wa Taala has bestowed upon you. How can you be disobedient to a Lord that has given you the ability to see when there are some who are not able to see how can you be disobedient to a lord? Who has given you the ability to walk? How can you use that to go and walk
to a place that's not pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Think about your sights and your hearing, and your health and your wealth and your family? Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us everything, how can we be disobedient to our Lord that has been so kind to us?
How can we use these faculties that Allah has given to us?
In this obey Him with these faculties of hearing and seeing,
and walking and so forth,
there are many
who are unable to see
there are many who are unable to hear
yet our last bannerghatta has given us all of these blessings.
And so be thankful for the blessings that we have. And the greatest blessing
that we have is actually the blessing of faith of a man of Islam.
Be thankful for that. By
putting it to practice and teaching others be thankful that we are Muslims. Because that is the greatest blessing that we have, that we need to hold on to with our dear life. Apolo Cody has never stopped feeling welcome first and you know who who will vote for him?

We hear about all the atrocities happening and all the difficulties that others are going through. And we think about the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We know that our Lord is ever Merciful. Our rough man, Rahim, Allah dude, He is the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful, the loving, then you might think also, you might say, Well, why is all this happening around us then? Why is it that we see people starving and suffering? Why is it that you see a child? A baby, your child and a toddler being washed up? on the beaches?
Why is all this happening?
Well, Allah subhana wa Tada.
When he created Adam alayhis, salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we're in Colorado Callen, mala ekati. In the jar Ilan fell out of the halifa.
And when your Lord said to the angels, surely I
have created I will create a creation I will put the equation on Earth. When he created Adam, I will put a vise Geron halifa on Earth, meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala will create us humans and give us the faculty of understanding and the ability to pretty much have to be the best on earth in terms of our ability and intelligence and strength.
So a loss of animal
As I will put on earth advice gerrant on this earth a Khalifa
and what did the angel say?
Babu attach Alfie Hama UFC to fee How is Pico Dima?
Are you going to put there in
a creation that will shed blood or cause mischief on earth and shed blood amongst themselves?
And we see all that happening right now. This mischief oppression that's going on right now. And so the angels are asking in a lot of hand what Allah Allah says
Allah, Allah May Allah tala surely I know that which you do not know, I know that which you do not know.
So, why is all this happening then? What is it? Well, you have to understand that whatever happens on Earth, Allah knows what's happening, and he's all wise. Allah subhanho wa Taala is all wise and everything that happens, there's wisdom behind it, whether we understand it or not. But a lot of Hanrahan is all wise. So you might say why is all this happening?
But one of the reasons is because
when the worst of humanity
commit the worst of atrocities, it will also bring out the best in the best of humanity. It will bring out the best and who are the best and loss of handle at that distance describes this oma as being the best.
me know Naveen.
You are the best of nations brought forth for humanity, you enjoying that which is good and forbid that which is evil. And you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala
We are the best. And so when the worst of humanity commit the worst of atrocities, when there are people who are in need of food, when there are calamities that are happening around the world, who are the people that should stand up and help those and who are the people who will stand up for justice, it is us. We are the ones who are supposed to do that, because we are the best.
That's why we especially living in the times that we're living in right now. Especially in the times that we're living we are living in right now. We have to embody the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah in our daily lives, we have to be the best. We can't just be ordinary, we have to be extraordinary. We can't just be different people look at us as being different. We have to be out there and make a difference. And that's why when there are homeless people in London right now, and there are soup kitchens are serving the homeless, who should be the people who are serving them and helping them. It is us we as Muslims, when there are calamities and earthquakes and tornadoes, and
when there are people who are in need, who should be the people
help and provide help.
It should be us. And that's why when there are people who are in need.
They are being tested.
someone stands up,
and is asking for donations so that we can help the poor, the orphans, the widows and the refugees who are in need. And then we don't give.
That means at that moment, we have just failed the test.
Because if we're thankful to Allah, then we spend those blessings in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And that's why
we're out there, in our neighborhoods, at our workplaces, we have to be the best. We have to be the best neighbors. We have to be the most honest people. We have to be the most helpful of our people. We have to be a people that others are proud to be our neighbors. Others are happy to be our co workers and our classmates. We have to be the most helpful people. And if we embody the teachings of Islam, in our daily lives, by being the best and the most helpful, it will not matter what the media says. The media can say anything that they want, because you know why?
You know as they say, your actions speak so loud. I can't even hear what you're saying.
First of all, no,
BBC, CNN and especially Fox, you guys are lying. What you're saying about Islam and the Muslims is incorrect, because I have a Muslim neighbor, I have never had a neighbor more helpful, more kind
than that neighbor of mine. He's a Muslim. The media can say anything that they want.
if we embody the teachings of Islam in our daily lives, they will not matter.
And that's why we have to be the best. We have to be the most honest, the most truthful, the people and that's the example that our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set, he was the most kind of the most helpful and the most beneficial to society.
He was always there for those who are in need. And that's why we have to be the best. We have to stop blaming the times that we are living in. And that's why Lee mama shelf he said, Now he was a man and I was able to see now what man is a man and I even see wanna
we blame the times that we are living in. But there's nothing wrong with the times that we are living in. The only thing that's wrong with the times that we are living in is us. And that's why if we want to change what's happening around us, we have to be the change that we want to see. And that's why I lost you behind what Allah says in Allah. Allah euro might be a tome Hatha Yoga, you may be to see him a lot. Why not change was in the people until they change within themselves. And that's why we have to stop blaming others and make that change from with him to be the best Muslim that we can be to be the best neighbor that we can be to be the best co workers that we can be to be
the best citizens that we can be to be there for the people going to hydro mutton. leanness, you are the best of nations brought forth for the people.
We have to be there for the people, whether they be Muslim, or non Muslim.
When the worst of humanity
commit the worst of atrocities, it brings out the best in the best of humanity and we inshallah are the best of humanity when we apply the Quran and the Sunnah in our daily lives. So everyone before you get out of here, make that change to be the best in character to be the best Muslim that you can be.
Before you leave here make that change and the change around you will happen a lot of my fellow Muslim no one Muslim at one would mean no one what may not fit a minimum well and what a lot of them at info center taqwa was a key unto high Romans aka, enter well you have a mala Allahumma is an Islamic Muslim in Allah home.
