the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, into the masjid one day. And he saw a man
from the unsolved by the name of Obama. He said, Yeah, but Obama, Obama and he came at a time in which
there wasn't a prayer that was coming up soon, anytime soon. And of course, the previous prayer was over for a while. And so he said, Yeah, but yeah, but Oh, mama. Oh, mama, Melia Raka Finn Masjid fever at work the Salah. Why do I see you in the masjid at this time? It's not prayer time. And so he said who movement? Lizzie metaline were the union Yasuda Allah, O Messenger of Allah.
a lot of work, a lot of worries, worries and debts are
bogging me down. And so he said, Hello, Allah mocha kelemen. Should I should I tell you something? Should I tell you something? That if you were to say it, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take away your worries and he will take take care of your deaths. And so he said,
Bala rasulillah Yes, of course our messenger of Allah, please do. And so he said, either us back there were either unsated in the morning and in the afternoon, in the morning say it and say it also in the afternoon, Aloma India also became ill ham we will has an O Allah, I seek refuge in You from worries and sadness, where I will be coming to see well castle and I seek refuge in You from inability and from laziness, while also becoming a juvenile bowhill and I seek refuge in You from cowardliness and miserliness will be coming available, available today in an in another narration, macabre region. And I seek refuge in You from the over piling overburdening of depths and of also
overpowering of humans are other of men. And so he said, I said these words, I follow the messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said these words and Allah subhanho wa Taala made my debts and my worries go away. And so whenever we are in need, especially the time that we are living in right now, we're always a lot of a lot of people are worried about their financial situation, when you see people losing their jobs, when you see people are being laid off from work. And also, you see that
by trying to follow or look for halal means it's a lot tougher for you than it is maybe for other people to try to provide for your family from halaal and from proper sources. And so sometimes the person might go into debts and so forth. And so what do we do in such situations? And in such cases, what should we do and how should we?
Who should we turn to?
Of course we turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we put our trust in Allah knowing that Allah subhana wa Taala provides for all but
how can we ourselves, how can we be at peace? Because first of all, a loss of a
with Allah He gives us what is called provisions. And he gives everybody provisions accordingly and Allah subhanho wa Taala is always and so there are people who are rich, and there are people who are poor, and there are people who are much more well off and others who are really in depth. So, we say we put our trust in Allah, but how should we put our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith from Omar Patara de la no in Sunni Timothy, he said no and no contact our calluna Allah Allah Azza wa coolly, low and nutcombe datawalk calluna Allah Allah Hakata wakulla if you were to truly put your trust in Allah, the way you should put your trust in Allah how patoka de la Rosa kakum Kamara, Yasuko Taya, he would provide for you just like he provides for the birds.
The mouse on the roof will be fine. It goes out in the morning with an empty stomach. It always comes back in the afternoon with a full stomach. Notice that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in this particular Hadith mentions to us if you were to truly put your trust in Allah, the way that you should. So what is that way? When we learn from the Hadith itself, the Messenger of Allah Salaam said he would provide for you just like he provides for the birds, it leaves in the morning. Notice it leaves its nest in the morning. It he doesn't he didn't say
Allah will provide for you just like he provides for the bird. The bird stays in its nest and a little worm crawls up the tree and he says Alhamdulillah
but he goes out in the morning. And then in the evening, when he comes back, he always comes back. The birds always come back with a full stomach. And so if you put your trust in Allah, you have to do all that you humanly can.
That's a part of putting your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we learned that from many stories from this era. Amongst these stories, is the story of hijab. The wife of Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi, salam, Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi Salam
came to Mecca.
With his wife, he brought his wife from a sham.
Just before this, there was a an argument or dispute between hajer and Sarah and this was mentioned in fertile body with a Hasson chain as mentioned by Nigel Escalante, the story and
Hazara Tara, profitable humanity salons first wife
was chasing her. And she said, If I can, if I get my hands on you, I will chop you into three pieces.
I get my hands on you, I champion three pieces, and this is after. So after he had a smile, before after he had a smile, there was a little bit of, of jealousy
amongst them. And so I want you to think about this incident. Now during this particular time,
Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi Salam brought Hajj to Mecca. Mecca at that time was barren.
There were no trees, or any vegetation whatsoever in that area. No inhabitants. It was an empty Valley.
unlike some of the other valleys that did have trees, they did have bushes. They did have vegetation. This Valley High it was it was barren, it had nothing. So he brings his wife harder.
And then he turns around, and he goes back to sham.
He goes back to a sham. Now I want you to think I put you put your put yourself in the position of harder.
What would some of us what would some of us be thinking at this time after this dispute after what had happened?
Some of us might be thinking, Hey, you know what? Maybe he's going back to his first wife. And he's trying to get rid of me.
Right. But, of course, he knew that. He knew that Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam was a prophet and messenger of Allah.
he did not say a single word to her. He turned around and he went back and he left her job. And his son is smiling in this in the middle of this valley, barren Valley, surrounded by mountains.
went chasing after her husband
chasing after her husband
asking her or asking him
asking him where he was going, where are you going?
Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi Salam
did not say a single word. He just continued going. He continued with he continued on his way. Again, she chased after him said, Where are you going? Finally profitable to him? After I'm profitable to him again, he didn't say anything. He just went Subhana Allah. And then
Oh, law, America, all Allah. Did Allah order you to do this. They will order you to do this. And so Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, all he had to do was say one word. He said yes.
When he said yes, hotjar was at peace. And she said, if that is the case, then Allah will never abandon us.
I mean, if this is done by the order of Allah, then he will not abandon us. And so she turned around,
putting her full trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Knowing that Allah would take care of her.
Why, if she would, if she didn't truly put our trust in Allah, she would still be chasing after him, right? But she truly put our trust in Allah and she turned around. But look at Prophet Ibrahim, also, the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, did he did he say anything? He said, Oh, my dear wife, he didn't give her lecture.
You know, we should put our trust in Allah. I had to do was say one word. Yes. That was it.
And she knew
that Allah would not abandon her.
Okay, she truly put her trust in Allah. Now is she going to just sit there inshallah Allah will take care of me.
Allah will take care of me. So she did she just stay there one place, and wait for birds. Wait for animals and people to come and bring food and water of angels to come down to send food and fruits and so forth to come down. Now? What did she do?
She didn't sit there. No, but she put her trust in Allah. She went up to the mountain, the closest mountain at that time, close to the highest peak that was in the area suffer. She wouldn't soften. She was looking around. Then she came back down. And again, she went to the other side, which was Motorola? And she went back and forth. How many times?
Seven times? She went back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. How? How do you think she was feeling at this time?
Do you think she was stressful? Do you think she was worried?
She was worried right? But the thing is, you can be at peace with yourself.
You can be sad and worried. But at the same time you're still at peace. There the there's not. It's not something that is contradictory. No. She believed in the law. She put her trust in Allah, knowing that Allah would take care of her. But she also did all that she could and continue to supplicate to Allah. And as a result of that, because of the level of her trust, the level of their work, the workload that she had
Muslims all over the world.
Every single day, seven days a week.
365 days in the year, not a single moments, except that there are people going back and forth between Safa and Marwa doing what she did to teach us a lesson about what truly putting your trust in Allah means.
Allah will take care of us.
But you do all that you can.
And because of the level of sincerity in her heart, Allah magnified her reward. So
From that time, and then later on people make, we're making hij
until the day of judgments until the time when people stop making lunch.
Every single day, people remember this woman.
They remember how they remember what she did. And they understand what putting your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala means, so a person will be tested. Allah Subhana Allah says, well in a blue one Nick can be a mineral healthy. Well, you will he will not pass a mineral and Wiley will emphasize with the Murat were Bashir, the Siberian Indeed, we will test you with some of of some fear and hunger and loss of wealth, and loss of self and a thermal and also fruits and so forth. But what Bashir is Siberian, but give glad tidings to those who are patient, to those who are patient. So a Muslim is between being thankful and being patient. And if a person
is patient, and they put their trust in Allah Subhana Allah and you turn to Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala will always give you always give you that which you that what you need, when you turn to Allah. But sometimes living in this society, living in this materialistic society, we are being brainwashed to the point where we always think we don't have enough.
We always feel that we don't have enough even though we do have enough. That's why in this society, this materialistic society, always telling you to buy, buy things you don't need.
With money you don't have At A Price You Can Afford
to impress people you don't even like.
You always think
you need this and you need that. But do you really need it?
It starts off, for example, maybe a couple of years ago, maybe a couple a couple of years ago before when they had black and white TV. Right?
If someone had a TV, that was a big thing. And then color TV came.
Right color TV came. And everyone said do you we got to go to Joe's house over there. Right Joe's got the color TV. Read the football game, we can watch it in color TV. Next thing you know you have that big screen TV. Right? It's not enough. You got to buy the big screen TV. Or the big screen TV isn't enough now. You need the HD TV. HD TV. You can see the strand of grass when you watch football. What are you doing watching the grass?
You understand? You can see the strand of grass when you're watching football. And then they see TV isn't enough anymore brothers. I got 3d TV. The grass is coming to me. It's in front of my face. 3d TV. Right? He never get enough.
And then before remember when we had the internet? Right? It was the dial up internet. Remember the days when your mother would yell you get off the internet? I need to call.
Right? nobody complained. It was 56 kilobytes. I don't know what it is right.
So you know, nobody complained for like 10 years, right?
And then all of a sudden on TV.
The adverts start coming out. Is your internet slow.
And then you start hearing that sound.
Right. You know that dialogue thing? Well, you know what now it seems slow. It wasn't slow before I heard you.
Yeah, the slow. Well, we have DSL. Then you have a DSL. Why is it still slow? What do you got? What do you got cable internet, right? Then you got 4g and all of these G's coming up. Right?
All of a sudden you can you gotta have it. But do you really need it? Do you really need it?
And so we end up wasting our time wasting our money
and not being appreciative of some of the things that we have. And so some of the literal some of the
Things that we
that we don't really need.
We don't really need we feel that we have to have.
And so we have all kinds of time saving gadgets,
why we have microwaves, we have
iPhones and cell phones, and all kinds of stuff, all kinds of things that are supposed to save us time, the only thing we don't have is time.
The only thing we don't have is time, because we're working so hard to buy those time saving gadgets
that we don't have time.
We don't even have time for ourselves and for our families.
Because they're telling us that we need this and we need that.
We have to
we have to
where they say, keep up with the Joneses, right?
Well keep up with the Huns, the Muhammad's
So everyone else has got it. So we need it also. So there are many things we don't need. And so we feel like we're we're in need of this, we're in need of that. But a lot gives us more than what we need.
But sometimes we fall into fall into debts we have, sometimes we are in need, sometimes we need to get married, we feel like we need to consult fourth, we need to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we have to look at the blessings that Allah subhana wa Taala has bestowed upon us. And at the same time, spend those blessings in the obedience of Allah. If you're thankful for the blessings that you have, Allah will increase those blessings for you.
No matter how small, or how little you have, or how little you think you have a believer always spends those blessings in the obedience of Allah. And as well always increases it for them.
And that's why, you know, every single morning, I look in the mirror and I said, Bill Barr, you're so handsome.
And I said, Yeah, law just says you have perfected my features. Also perfect my character, right? So then Allah increases you in blessings, you know, you see that's the result of it, don't you see?
So be thankful for all the blessings that you have user's blessings in the obedience of Allah. And Allah subhanho increase it for you. And if you fall into a tie in times of hardship, and difficulties and you're in need, turn to Allah and ask for goodness from Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, Prophet Musa alayhis, salam, Prophet Musa alayhis salam, when he left Egypt, when the authorities in Egypt were after him, after the incident where between the Israelites and the Egyptian that occurred, the he was he was wanted. And so he went, he went east,
to madeon. He had nothing.
He had nothing. He had no wealth. He left everything in Egypt, he left the palace in Egypt.
And so, he helped the two woman
who were in Meridian, he helped them
with the water.
And then he went under the tree.
And he supplicated to Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhana wa says, The color of B nilima and delta ILA human higher and
he made this application to Allah. He said, Oh Allah, in nilima and zetta, la human higher inferior, any, any good that you can send towards me? Surely I am. I am dearly in need. I am dearly in need. So send upon me any good. So when he supplicated to a law and he didn't have anything, didn't have a place to stay?
He didn't have any money. He didn't have a job. He didn't have a wife. He had nothing whatsoever. But when he turned to Allah, what did Allah subhanho wa Taala do? Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him a wife.
Right, gave him a wife and gave him a job.
He had a job and a wife. Right? So he was a shepherd. Right? And he worked. He got married. And Allah subhanho wa Taala took care of him. And so
when you put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when you turn to Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala takes care of you. But when you turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in times of need, you better make sure that the source of your income is hella
There are some people who approach maybe they approached a chef. And they say, Chef, you know, I know my I know I'm in a haram Haram.
job. I'm working in haram company. I'm working here and there. I know that's not right. But you know, yeah, Allah, you know, I'm supplicating to Allah subhanho wa Taala all the time that Allah subhanho wa Taala will show me an open for me the way so that I can get a new job, that's how, and I'm supplicating to him every day.
You know, that person?
is very likely to have his door rejected.
Because you have to make sure that your
source of income is halaal and that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us of a man who was traveling, and he raised his hands to Allah. And he was His hair was be shoveled. And his he was full of dust.
on a long trip and you know, one of the times that your your do is accepted, is when you're traveling,
and you're sincere when you're in need, especially when you're traveling.
And so he says you're up you're up oh my lord, oh my lord, what am I moharram and his food is haraam. malba Melissa haraam and this clothing as her amavasya Rahman is nourished from her arm used to jab hula How is he going to have his hobby accepted.
So that's why you know your connection between you and Allah is very important. Don't cut it off with having her on means because in the La
Ilaha Illa. Allah is clean and pure and does not accept anything except that which is clean, impure.
So you have to make the conviction first, then Allah will open up a way for you, you have to make the conviction to leave that sin that you're in. Leave those that haram jam, or you have to make sincere Toba and you make the conviction to follow Allah subhana wa Taala as law
you have to have Taqwa Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, Maria tequila Allahumma Raja whosoever fears Allah has taqwa. Notice and here woman here is conditional Shanthi Yeah, it's conditional. What is conditioner You have to do it first in order to have the second
will not yet tequila and then Yahoo Maharajah, then I'll open up a way for you. You know, I have a friend,
a very close friend of mine.
He had a job.
Masha Alhamdulillah was a very, very well paying job. But it's one of those jobs that are not very prevalent, you can't get it anywhere. It's very specific.
Probably in the United States, maybe two or three states, you can get those types of jobs on Arizona, in Washington states and some other places, probably in Florida and Texas, or somewhere like that, suddenly, you can't just look for it anywhere. So if you lose that job, it's very difficult to find it, especially in that field that he was in.
He had a supervisor. his supervisor was okay with him going to dumar going to pray Friday Prayer all the time.
And then the company changed supervisors. So there was a new, a new supervisor, that new supervisor
noticed that he would always go and leave everything Friday afternoon, when everyone is so busy, everyone's in everyone is busy. And it's the busiest time of the week because everybody wants to finish things up so that you can
take off for the weekend.
So you got everyone is busy trying to finish the last few things. And then he leaves.
So the supervisor said, You know what, that's not fair for everyone else.
That's not fair for everyone else. How is it that every time the other times you don't leave it on Friday afternoon when we need you the most you leave you think it's fair for everybody else?
So I think we got it we we might need another person. I don't think it's this job is befitting for you.
he says, You know what, but I have to go pray tomorrow. I have to go Friday prayer.
And so this supervisor said, Well, you know, that's how I feel. I feel it's not
affair. I mean, you can go pray your Friday prayer, okay? But don't be surprised when you come home when you come back. Don't be surprised to find that pink slip on your desk.
Don't be surprised. I'm just telling you ahead of time. That's all. Because you see my reasoning, right? You understand, right? Isn't that fair? Why are you leaving at that time? I'm just, I'm just saying, We're depending on you at that time, and you just leave. And he says, so, you know, Friday comes.
And he's between his job
and the pink slip.
And so he says, You know what? When the boss says, you want to go Go ahead, but don't be surprised. So he said, You know, he said, Go ahead, Okay, I'm gonna go ahead. Because I lost him, Hannah and Charlotte will take care online.
And he's merciful, man, I wrote him
a Roth IRA here, Raheem, he will take care of me. He is the provider.
And so he leaves.
He goes and praise Joomla he comes back to his workplace. And his buddies are saying, the boss wants to see
the boss wants to see you. And he said, You know, he was thinking in his mind this is it. This is it. When he got to his boss,
when he got to his boss,
his boss said, You know what?
I really respect your conviction.
And I've been looking into when you were gone, I was doing some research on the internet. And you know what? I didn't know it was obligatory for you to pray five times a day in the mosque.
You know, where the boss read is Fatima from Islam to a
so he said, I was reading about prayers about Islam.
And, you know, what?
If you're not going to take over 20 minutes, No, go ahead. You know, I, what time would you have the noon prayer and the afternoon prayer also, right? Not just a Friday. I didn't know that was only Friday. You guys five times a day, that serious conviction.
That serious conviction, wow, you pray five times a day.
What sense versus you also have to pray five times in a mosque. So see behind Allah, his boss, prevented him from praying. Juma? When he made that conviction and came back, Allah opened his heart and gave him five daily prayers at the monster.
five daily prayers is as long as you didn't take more than 20 minutes, go ahead. If you want to help us later on may make stay, you know, stay overtime and so forth a little bit. It's okay. If you're going to take time, just make it up for a little bit. Anytime. No problem. We have no problem with it whatsoever. Just on Friday, try to you know, try to come back a little bit early. Help us a little bit here. That's all Subhan Allah, why did Allah subhanho wa Taala open? Now you know why? Because the loss of Han says, Well, my attack Allah, whoever fears a lot, but notice this is conditional. You have to make that conviction first. And so that brother said I put my trust in
Allah, then Allah opened up the doors, because if you don't make that conviction, you won't see the doors opening up, you will see the jobs because if he would see ahead of time, okay, you know what if I get fired from here, there's another job waiting for me over there. No, he's not gonna see that.
It will open up for you when you make that conviction. When you have Taqwa. When you put your trust in Allah, Allahu Maharaja, Allah will open up a way for you. Well, May, Allah Allah for who has boo, whoever puts his trust in Allah and it's enough for him.
To enough Allah has enough for him. And so seek the halal means seek the halal source and know that Allah has given us so much.
Just because we feel we don't have enough.
It doesn't really mean you don't have enough.
It's the society the shavon is always gonna say you don't have enough. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when asked about harming come mean and he said to be whoever is
whoever wakes up in the morning
and he has peace
and tranquility, peace and his family and himself in itself. What often he just said, and he is free from sicknesses of his body of any anything of his body, in Tohoku to me and you have enough food for that day. That is at a level dunia says if you have the
because if you die, what are you going to take with you?
We are always thinking we don't have enough it is us.
But Allah has given us so much. And if Allah gives us anything, then you have to be consistent No matter how much you have in spending that blessing in obedience of Allah, and that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala says and inshallah I will end it with this.
I've been giving signals
I have a bad reputation by the way in Seattle. They say never give a woman a telephone or establish will bury a microphone.
So I don't want that reputation to follow me. A lawsuit behind what Allah says
a lamb of Pharaoh. Era Beco majan net in Orlando has come to Orlando right? That's what he was sad to be quick hurry. No, so awesome. I use the Satio quick always. But when it comes to the dunya he uses the word walk. What's up man Akiba. pulumi rst warm shoe walk, when it comes to doing good deeds. For the hereafter he says Hurry, be quick. But when it comes to the dunya just
take it easy, Allah will take care of you if you put your trust in Allah. But remember putting your trust in I was doing all that you can do all that you can. With Sadie or Eli Montero, Timmy, Robbie can be quick towards the forgiveness of your Lord and paradise with Jonathan.
And a paradise which is which is the the width of which is the width of the heavens and the earth. Forget about these little houses you think about you know, paradise, the width of the witches the width of the heavens on the earth, we're not talking about 10 acres here.
You guys are small streets and so forth, right? We're gonna
the width of which is the width of the heavens, and that's in prepared for the believers. Then within those who have Taqwa, Allah gives it to them. Now, who are they?
Puna, finsa, rah, rah law, those who spend in times of ease and hardship,
whether you have a little or not a little or a lot, they're always generous, and they always spend, whatever you have you spend as much as you are able to, you know, there's a, you know, there's a Christian,
a brother who accepted Islam, and he knows he was telling me about how a close friend of his, do you know what his intention was, he said, I would like
I am working towards spending
half of my income towards charity.
Do you know that was his goal? To make enough money so that he can spend half of his money in charity, that's a Christian Brothers, we are Muslims.
We have the promise of Allah. If you spend half of your wealth in the obedience of Allah, and you have that intention, and you work towards that Allah will make the other half more than enough for you.
The other half will be more than enough for you. When you spend the law gives you more. When you spend a loss of hanworth, Allah gives you more. And so those who spend it's not those who are rich.
Those who are whether it's during times of hardship or ease you spend in the way of Allah. And you might say, But wait, wait, wait, wait, you know what they do here at Green Lane? Masjid.
Oh, you know what the other mosquito this organization? We're always having people come from this organization, that organization, this school in that school and this project and that project would I give to?
Who would I give to, they give to this or that
they give to the orphans of the people in Syria? Who would I give to? isn't like every single week I come to the masjid people asking for money. When does it stop?
You know, the Quran. When does it stop? Let me tell you when it stops.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says he praises the believers
right from the very beginning when
rasa Panera Home
Depot and from that which we have provided for them they spend as long as the law is still providing for you, you continue to spend,
you continue to give when a law doesn't give you
Anything you have nothing to give us when you stop.
You still have money in the bank, you continue to spend. Even if you have to give just a little bit, make sure you give
but continued to spend, and Allah will continue to spend upon you in times of hardship, that's when you need to spend. That's why the Prophet Salam said the best.
The best sadaqa is the sadaqa when entered the sad duck Went so when you are healthy, so hey, hon. Shia here from new feeling miser. Sorry, duck shell *er you're afraid of poverty without Melina but hoping you're hoping that you'll get your you'll get something
that's the best time to spend.
When you're in need, and you're giving it for the sake of Allah, then Allah Subhana Allah will open the ways for you. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah, He teaches that was benefits and benefits from that which he has taught us. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala just as he has gathered us here today, to other also gather us in the highest level in paradise with the prophets and messengers, which is our communication with sal Allahu Allah Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.
