hamdulillah Allah azza wa jal has allowed us to see each other once again, we ask Allah azza wa jal that he was discovering, and he bestowed His Mercy tranquility upon us. We ask him Subhanahu wa Taala they accept our gathering, and forgive our sins and our shortcomings.
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam,
there is not a single one among us that is sitting here, except that he has gone through a calamity or he is currently going through a calamity or he will go through a calamity in the future. This is a fact of life.
Whether this calamity is related to your wealth, a loss of wealth, loss of business, a loss of job or loss of income, whether this calamity is related to life, a loss of a loved one or a family member or a miscarriage, or the loss of a newborn.
Whether this calamity is related to your health, a loss of health and so on. The calamities are many, whether this calamity is within your family and raising children with the contemporary challenges of today's life. These are all calamities and this is a fact of life, that you will go through all these calamities.
And the question is,
this is something that the believer also goes through. And the disbeliever also goes through
with a question is, why does Allah azza wa jal test the believer? That's the first question we want to answer so that we can understand why these calamities in the first place before we speak about how to be patient from the calamity.
Why is the believer tested on the believers upon the truth? And they worship Allah Who assertion and they obey Allah subhanho wa Taala is an Amana assertion able to grant the believer a stress free life, a happier life a life free of difficulty and hardship. Isn't Allah azza wa jal able to grant the believers victory in the word God and it will happen? Of course, most definitely. Allah azza wa jal is able to do so.
He said Allah azza wa jal able to grant the believers all aligned like Adam Alayhis Salam when he lived in the Paradise.
Most definitely. And Allah azza wa jal promised that he will grant the believers a life that is stress free and difficult, free, and how cheap free and that is in the Paradise. So why the tests? Why the tests and the calamities in difficulties in his own life. Very simple, my brothers and sisters in Islam, and that is because the heart of a believer
only wakes up and it comes to life. And Iman grows and nurtures in the heart of a believer during calamities. This is when the heart awakens. And this is when a man is refreshed and revived in the heart. When the believer goes through a calamity.
And so three increases during the times of calamity. This is how Allah azza wa jal has created the heart. You see the body of the human being, he gets his strength and energy, from sleep from rest, from eating from drinking. This is how the body charges up with energy and strength. As for the heart, it's even
the energy and the strength. And this event grows.
And the heart is charged with strength during a calamity and the hardship and the Tribulation.
And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed hardships and calamities upon the believers. So that the end so that at the end of the journey at the end of the small life, they meet Allah azza wa jal with hearts there are big events that are charged with Eman and certainty and Allah subhanahu medalla. With hearts that are firm and steadfast.
You know, when the believer is being tested, it's like a person that swims against waves, you know, the harsh, intense wave of the ocean. When a person swims against the wave. You come up with two things. Number one, you come up with a strong heart that has overcome it sees Majan you're in the ocean, and you're fighting against the wave and you're swimming against them. And you make it to the other side to come waters. You come out your heart strong speed. You've overcome your fees and you come out with stronger muscles. The fact that you have to endure
On this kind of hardship and struggle, and that's exactly the same case with every calamity and tribulation and trial that the believer goes through. He comes out with a strong heart and strong faith in Allah subhanho wa taala. Believing that what had happened to him of a calamity only came because Allah azza wa jal had decreed that for him, he comes out, saying, and humbly lay his hand, praising Allah social for whatever situation he decreed upon him.
And he comes out, being purified from his sins and cleanse from his sins. And he comes out of the calamity, stronger than he entered in the calamity. This is the ID, this is the whole point of the calamity. So that before you go in, you go in Week 11 This week, and you're supposed to come up from the other end, stronger in your Eman stronger than when you entered. This is what the calamity does. This is the point of a calamity. If this is how you experienced a calamity in life, that had Hamdulillah you have understood Allah's message in the calamity, you've understood the message correctly, and you're on a path of feeling like you're prepared to meet Allah subhanho wa taala.
And so we need to understand this matter really well. A calamity is like a basketball, you know the basketball, when you hit it on the ground. The harder you hit it, the higher up it goes. And so the heavier the calamity upon a person, the higher Hiskey man and belief in Allah azza wa jal rises. And so Allah azza wa jal meet calamities, a part of the life of a believer, so to have good, strong and firm upon faith and event and this is why I'm the Day of Judgment. It's the heart of the believer that is weighed and judged. You know, the Hadith that Allah azza wa jal does not look at your shapes and your body size. Rather he looks at your heart and its actions because this is where a man is.
When he saw Allah, Allah yourself and he says, On the Day of Judgment,
the the overweight person is brought
to light you will send me with budeme someone that is overweight and heavy is brought from the day of judgment. He does not weigh the winner of a mosquito with Allah subhanho wa Taala isn't bodyweight has no concern and no value of the Day of Judgment. Allah azza wa jal he weighs the heart of a believer, just as in the Hadith of the Allahu Anhu at the mercy of the Allah who was very weak. He was very sorry he was a skinny man, a beloved Masuda. Lovely Allah, I know he was very skinny. And once you had walked the climb a tree Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu they saw him and the wind had come, and it blew some of his dress, and they had seen that he is knee that his leg. His Shin was
very thin, skinny, so they began to laugh. When Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them Minmatar hukou, what are you laughing at? They said did participate? The because of the fact that he she is very thin and skinny. Finally some Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, we're lucky enough cvrd Reese Allahu alayhi wa sallam took a lot from Africa to feed me is that even generally offered, they weigh heavier than the mountain of effort in the sight of Allah subhanho wa taala. The idea is that he made us wait, his faith and his belief in Allah azza wa jal is heavy in the sight of Allah subhanho wa taala. So my brothers and sisters in Islam understand, if you are serious in your
journey to Allah azza wa jal, then you will be tested no doubt. So prepare yourself. Every moment is life is a test in a calamity. Even the final moment as a person dies has been tested. Metric nuts a big calamity. Allah azza wa jal in the Quran he said for Asaba. To Muslim that will note when the calamity of death strikes, so even the moment you die there, that's a calamity in and of itself. The fact that the record of your good deeds is close and you can no longer worship Allah assertion. The tongue that used to Say Subhan Allah can no longer say this. The foot that used to walk to Al masjid and earn its reward from Allah azza wa jal can no longer do this. The eyes that used to read the
Quran can no longer do this, the hand that you used to extend to the pocket and take out some money and give me Savini Allah, you can no longer do this. This is why death was considered a calamity because the door of good has sealed and it has closed when the reason
Hello, I didn't even send them said either American who had them on copper.
When the Son of Adam dies, all his good deeds come to an end PCs, horse, no more good deeds, except one of three. And that's a different story. But the idea is, that's my death was a calamity. And then after them and being in the grave for a while, and what happens to a person and there is something known as fitness, cover, fitness to cover is the questioning in the gray, which is different to other will cover or there is the actual punishment, fit not all companies the question and that's the calamity amount of itself. And then coming out from the green
and standing in the plains of the Day of Judgment, that's a calamity in and of itself. And then we'll Misa will say hello, and then crossing above your handle on the bridge, until finally a person's two feet are in the Paradise. Now there's no more calamity. Now it's all over. So sit back and relax and understand this point very well, that there is no escape from calamity. The one who tries to convince himself I mean a calamity now, I'm just chocolates gonna finish. And then once I finish, I'm gonna have some time to relax and breathe.
When you live like this, you don't enjoy your life.
And you're always running after something that you will never achieve. Your running after a stress free life, a difficult free life, you will never achieve this. So the believer needs to understand this lesson really well. That calamities are coming or coming one after the other.
And you need to understand what is Allah's message to me? How do I read Allah's message in this moment? The message of Allah azza wa jal is that I want you to grow stronger in your email.
So do the things that are required during the calamity so that the calamity doesn't go to waste. And you come out at the end, having been granted strength in your Eman and your focus upon Islam. And Allah azza wa jal in the Quran, he said, one of the blue one Nigam Vichy mineral hopefully we're sure you all know the ayah and will surely test you with something of your health and wealth and so on. But the question is, why would Allah azza wa jal inform us of this fact? Why Allah azza wa jal had said, we will test you why. So that you can be prepared so that you can be prepared. And he let me give you an example. As a teacher, if I was to walk into the classroom, and all the students are
sitting, and I came, and I handed an exam paper to them, and I said, Today, you're going to do your exam for everything that we have studied. One of the students will be in shock. How come? You never told us? We're not prepared? We're not ready.
But then take the same example. As a teacher I come into the classroom is the students and I say to you, my brothers and my sisters, in sha Allah Tala, we're going to have an exam next week for the subjects that we have taken. Next week comes and no one's surprised. Everyone's prepared. Everyone's ready. You sit your exam, well, how did he learn? And the same thing Allah was so genuine? He said to us, well, no blue and Nikon is to prepare us so that when the test comes, you don't say, Where did this come from? How come I've lost well, how come I've lost tell what's happening? Where is this coming from? Relax Allah azza wa jal, as already said in the Quran 1400 years ago. Well, an upload
Mecca will surely test you. So the one who reads has a relationship with the Quran knows that this is coming. Nothing is happening except the Komodo so Israel is fulfilling his promise. That's all nothing is happening except that ALLAH is fulfilling his promise when the calamity receives you. And this is why the believers Eman gurus, why does it go? Because he seen Allah's promise being fulfilled. You know, Allah azza wa jal, he says, what a mela known and observed Khan who has another word and Allahu Allah Zulu, or sort of the law, so, what does a man or what a steamer I know when I first read this, I was confused. How did this calamity increase them in Eman? Allah azza wa jal you
see when the believers saw the enemy of Allah come to them in the Battle of the Battle of the ditch 10,000 of an bull*tin Kingdom Medina was Sahaba op Allahu anomala. So she describes their state in acquire what Bella guru would halogen their hands had reached their fruit out of fee from the enemy, even to the point where one of them wanted to go to relieve himself. It was a mission and it was a very difficult format up here.
He says the Sahaba of the Allah who I know. And this is an army of 10,000 that is prepared. And the believers are not as prepared as that believe this believers that have come Allah so He described the believers in the Quran. He said, well let me know.
When the believers saw the 10,000 army of Kufa, police coming to them, and indeed this is a calamity. This is a huge calamity. You're seeing depth in your eyes. Why don't we do that? What did the believers do? They stood there and they said, Hey, Mao was done. Allahu Allah sudo. And you put each other and they said, This is exactly what Allah and His Messenger promised us. He promised that Allah has social will be testing us with these matters, has a word of Allah who Rasulo then they looked at each other and they said, well, Salah, Allahu Allah, sunnah. Allah and His Messenger have spoken the truth. What was the result? When there's no email done, and the email only increased? Why
did they even increase because they saw the disbelievers. The email increased because they've seen a loss promise being fulfilled. Right. Ahmed said we let him enter what is Lima and only increase them in submission to Allah azza wa jal. So during the calamity, they never forgot the obedience of Allah. They never forgot to be
submitting to Allah azza wa jal today, when someone goes through a calamity, he loses his Deen altogether and he keeps away from the obligations in the commands and that this is not an example of what is required from the believer.
The worst thing a person can do during a calamity is to disobey Allah has such and such a person did not read the message right? The only correct thing that needs to be done during a calamity is for a person to remain step past upon the worship of Allah azza wa jal and uphold the commands in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is not going to come easy. This will come for a person who knows to submit to Allah azza wa jal in terms of ease. And then when the difficulty comes Allah azza wa jal gives him that strength and that motivation to continue to worship Him during the calamity event. This is why Allah azza wa jal would say whether the Blue Lagoon in order to prepare
us for what is to come, my brothers and sisters in Islam, when a person is faced with a calamity, they no doubt he needs to exercise patience
and patience is a high level of Eman. In fact, patience is half of iman. And the other half of iman is Ashoka. gratitude to Allah subhanho wa taala. And the believers affairs are between these two matters. You're either in a moment of your life in where you're supposed to exercise patience, or you're either in a moment in your life we're supposed to exercise a sugar and gratitude to a market solution. And your affairs revolve around these two matters. And at times both these matters at the same time.
Whenever Allah spoke in depth and Allah about patience, and patience is supposed to be exercised in three matters, upon the worship of Allah. So when you worship Allah azza wa jal that requires patience
and avoiding sins, you also require patience, it requires patience, when you see some desire, when you see a sin, and you want to approach and and you want to commit the sin and your desires dragging you towards it, you require it requires patience to keep away from it. And the final matter that requires patience is the calamities and the pains and the difficulties of life. Well, I want to share with you today inshAllah 10 points, these are the words and the works of nuclear.
In his book,
political he shall attain what outside the thing, remember the name of Allah. He produced this phenomenal book called political he shall attain the path of the two migrations. What is meant by the two migrations is that every believer is supposed to migrate to Allah azza wa jal, and he's supposed to migrate to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrating to Allah means to believe in Allah has solution to submit the Allah's command to love Allah azza wa jal defeat him to rely upon him that email and telecon upon Allah. So that's how you migrate to Allah and so on.
And you also need to migrate to a full allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is by loving him and by obeying His commands and so on is how you migrate Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he called his book politically he shall attain the two parts of the hijab without sad thing, and the two happy lives and that is he wrote in the book, How to achieve happiness in this life, and how to achieve happiness and joy in your life.
Life. This book is an incredible book. He spoke a lot about the actions of the heart. And he spoke about the stages. So he will speak, a talk called reliance upon Allah and what it is, until he reaches the topic of sort of patience. And he speaks in detail about patience. One of these matters is he spoke about 10 ways. How can a believer remain patient upon the calamities that he faces in life? Number one,
he says, sure who to share with our behalf. Any believer that goofs through a calamity,
in order to practice patience upon this calamity, the first thing you must recognize and acknowledge and know, the reward that Allah has social grants are those who are patient upon calamity. That's the first way that will help you and aid you remain patient upon a calamity for you to know the reward.
And that makes sense. I'll give you an example. Let's say, I said to one of you,
we're going to bless you.
And for every lash, there's going to be a lot of pain and suffering. But we're going to grant you 10,000 bullets for every lash. What will happen in that case? Let's be more keep going. Right because you know the reward that is going to come after the lashing.
So we live in Barcelona Allah in a similar way. When the believer is fully away, and recognizes what reward Allah azza wa jal has granted those who are patients upon the calamity. It allows him to live happy days during his calamity, right? He reaches a level where you know what, whatever Allah has decreed is decree. All of this is not going to waste and I'm receiving reward from the King of all kings. How huge is this going to be? It's going to be greater than $10,000 for lunch, and much more than any human being can ever offer you for any pain that you go through.
And the greatest, the greatest area that discusses the reward for those who are patient upon their calamities, Allah azza wa jal, he says and similar to Zuma, in NAMA, yo for Saville, behavior, he said, The Greatest a Allah, Allah Azza, wa jal, he says the those who are patient, they are given their reward behavior, without any calculation whatsoever. Reward in this area means the paradise so those who are patient, Allah social grants them the Paradise, and He grants them gifts and fevers in the paradise without any calculation, an open check. This is different to others, others who don't receive this kind of reward, then their reward in the Paradise is calculated. There is a limit to
it, as Allah azza wa jal says Jessa bigger alpha and he says, he's calculated, but those who are admitted into the paradise and they are from among those who are patient, Allah azza wa jal grants them reward with no calculation, no one knows what it is except Allah azza wa jal, this is great, this is huge because it is Allah assertion, who seen your reward is upon me, and I know what it is and no one will ever be able to calculate it. Subhan Allah, Allah azza wa jal in the Quran and Sunnah of the book Allah He said, what does she do Salim? Give good news and congratulate those who ovation and live you know Valsalva to Silverton Paulo in La lucha in Nigeria your as your own. What
is the reward three things Allah mentioned with a Cali him Salawat beam number one, Allah azza wa jal grabs them Salawat from the Lord silhouette is the plural of solid
solid means Allah preys upon them. What does it mean that Allah preys upon them? There are two opinions that are best for the Allah Who says that Allah grace and forgiveness and notice the ASM Salah wet Solara, singular or plural, plural meaning forgiveness after forgiveness after forgiveness, so long as he's in that calamity of his and exercising patience. He is being cleansed cleanse forgiveness, because that just doesn't stop Salawat there might be the other opinion as mentioned by patata Rahim OMA priests, Salah to European meaning Allah azza wa jal praises them continuous priests after praise, who does he praise them? Who does he praised them among among the
high ranking angels? So Allah azza wa jal mentions you the patient person by name to the high ranking angels, and your name is mentioned over and over again. Do you understand what this means? We don't understand what this means. But I'll give you a small example.
you're sitting in a gathering, and we walked in, and let's say someone was sitting, and someone walks in and says, brother,
today, just an hour ago, I was among 100 people, and they're all speaking highly among you, about you, and they will all presume you, you're sitting here having not witnessed that gathering that was praising you, how good do you feel? How would you feel and this if this is human being praising you, who cannot benefit you know, how am you? How about that when you know, we this is only two words in the Quran gives you this information solo to begin. However, when you know that it is Allah who is praising you, among the high ranking angels, those who carry the throne should be lawmaker IUI sofiero All those Your name is mentioned Wahaca how huge this is what a great we want this is like
gallium solar to Merapi in the morning when finished, while Rama and Allah azza wa jal showers them with mercy.
From Allah said mercy here means that Allah azza wa jal will soon remove this calamity away from them. What will happen with the dune and such people are granted guidance so that as you're in your calamity, practicing patience, you become guided. So you only speak when Allah azza wa jal is pleased with and you only do what Allah azza wa jal is pleased with. Sometimes, you know, you see parents that lose a child of this and you find that Allah has he's not doing it. How is he doing it? He has lost it. Masha Allah, we've seen firmness and steadfastness in all he's saying is that humbly law?
You know what he has been given such a person, this guidance of the dune.
Allah is guiding him to control himself and to see words that are pleasing to Allah, and to only do that which is pleasing to Allah. Otherwise, what's the difference between him and someone else who's pulling his head and screaming at the top of Islam? And complaining about Allah and cursing Allah azza wa jal? What's the difference? One practice patients Allah granted in guidance during that time, the other was displeased with Allah Azza wa what Allah azza wa jal has written for him. As a result, he lost the gift of guidance. Now he is following the path of a shoe bomb in his knifes, and he will begin to utter what he utters and do what he does. What will government do? Please areata
To teach you the Greek reward that Allah surgeon has prepared for those who are patient upon the calamities. And there was a pious woman of the past. She went through a difficulty, a pain, it was in her arm in her finger, I forgot. But there was extreme things that she was enduring. And she sent a beautiful statement that is memorized until this day. She said, the sweetness of the reward made me forget the bitterness of the pain.
See that? Even when you focus your attention and you pay attention to the reward Allah has put for those who are patient upon the calamity. Surely and ultimately, it will make you forget about the theme of the calamity. But hamdulillah that's number one. Number two, remember no failure Mohamed Allah says, shooter Korea is Sylia anti war.
These are points. I encourage you my brothers and sisters in Islam to write even if it's one word. Remember the reward. That's one. Number two.
Know that calamities, wipe away sins. That's something to know that the calamity wipes away your sins. When you know this, it helps you remain patient upon your calamity.
Whenever you saw Allahu alayhi wa sallam informed us of this narrow, he saw Allahu alayhi wa sallam said
many Muslims but in to see will Muslim in another iteration, any calamity that afflicts a Muslim or a believer. So that means a believer is also tested. Except that Allah assertion wipes away from his sins even if it was the prick of a phone. You know, the rose and how it has a foreigner if you prick yourself, it wipes away sins, even the needle injection, some people that are diabetic, and they literally prick their own bodies with a needle and even the blood tests that a person has to go through to do a couple of tests all of this is one thing away from the sin as long as you are enduring the pain of his calamity.
This will help you remain patient when you know these factors. Maybe some Allahu Allah you
Send them says, Who is whoever is afflicted with Wasabi? Wasabi is chronicle illness and illness that has no cure. Oh no. So anyone who is afflicted with nasaga nasai is fatigue, tiredness, perhaps the person has a long day,
seeking his hard earned income and he comes back home and he's tired and exhausted. That's a calamity. That tiredness and fatigue after going out to earn a hello provision
is included in this heavy lemon levy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned is tiredness is calamity, right after mentioning a person with chronic illness.
There may be some Allah Allah usnm said what a sucker succumb is sickness that is mild in its pain, like a headache, or like fever
or any sadness or grief due to the loss of something or someone that's what person is loss of love. And the person becomes sad and grieved by them. Loss of business, loss of a loved one, whatever the case is, you lost something and a calamity hits and then it doesn't happen him may have moved. And even the worry and concern that person house and the worry and concern is of future matters, anxiety and fee. All of these matters. If a believer experiences them.
Then in the result Allahu Allah yourself themselves, Allah azza wa jal wipes away it seems.
They continue as long as you are in this calamity, sins are being wiped away. Every single moment of pain does not go to waste, every second of worry, and every second of p, and every second of whatever it is of calamity, the believers sins are being erased and wiped away. As long as you are now being patient and seeking Allah subhanahu wa does reward and who among us, my brothers and sisters is not in need of his sins to be removed and wiped away. Allah he this is an it must be the wish of every single believer that he wants to be cleansed down to zero, in his account of sins before he dies, is the wish of every believer. Because if there are sins upon you,
and your dying, which seems still upon you, then you have exposed yourself to Allah's punishment. Perhaps you get punished. Perhaps you're spared punishment all of the cases. We don't know. Why would you want to leave this world your life with this kind of risk?
So Allah azza wa jal from his mercy upon the believers is that he granted and give them these calamities, and he made from the main things of this calamity is that it wipes away sins. When Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said listen to this beautiful hadith of Shabbat and an ensemble Allah who I know he said, In Allahu Allah azza wa jal, he says, in need of delay to abdomen whenever I test a sleeve of mine, Mina i Believing sleep of mine for Hamadani and then after like two then he praises me for what I have tested he says I'm hungry left for what has occurred to me
thinking nothing of your own woman mobile Jerry he then he can tell me whether to move a minute. He's heard of this habit. And maybe some Allahu Allah Unison them says that Allah says such a person would get up from his resting place. He will get up that day from his sleep, as though his mother has given birth to him right now. Meaning he comes out free from his siblings, all of them have been removed.
And Allah social would say, and how do you feel authentic and clear drop the water into I am the one who shackled my sleeve and tested him.
For as you level can continue to junetta, who also here, he says to the angels. So continue to write for him, the voluntary and the obligatory good deeds that he would have done had he been healthy and standing with his two feet continue to write the good deeds for no problems. Hawaii is in a is in his bed, he can't move. He's in this emotional state where he doesn't want to see anyone. Doesn't matter all the good that you could have done and you would have done a fasting and praying and vicar. Every citation of the Quran had all been written for such a person
and all his sins are being removed as a newborn. You know this duration of a newborn whether we hear it with which lead with the harsh the heat of the reward of a person of hush
throughout his carnality
It removes sins and it removes the consequences of sins, then that's the second matter that a person needs to be conscious of. Number three, she who proudly said to Jerry behalf, what a name of Qaddafi will make it become law unto
them, Davina francesa, who will never never know, I said, number three, is the third point that as a person, to remain patient upon the calamity, is to know that the calamity has already been decreed and written, it has been written in omole, Kitab, the mother of the book, a lot of homophobia. And it was written in this book, before the calamity was even created. And so it's inevitable to occur. And so you've been displeased with the calamity of Allah. So I
want to change anything, it's going to make your situation worse, and it's going to increase your calamity, how you're going through the calamity, calamity, anyway. And number two, you're not accepting it. So it's making it worse for you, because you're missing out, you're missing out on all the benefits of the reward and the forgiveness of sins. All of this is held back from you, just because you're not accepting it. So number three, is to accept the fact and know that any calamity you're going to go through in life has already been written. It's already documented, and it is most surely going to happen. It's only a matter of time, when Allah azza wa jal has decreed for it to
happen, isn't it this hadith, or when the Masonic globally Allahu Anhu said
he came to someone, and he said, The nebula tequila, he said, My son, fear Allah. And he said they wanted
and you will never be able to fear Allah until you have certain belief in Allah assertion.
And then you sit down and you will never have certain belief in Allah, that took me that will lead you astray until you have certain belief in the divine decree the good and the back of it.
And that from from the belief of the other, the most specific thing you're supposed to know, is Cinco de matar Lemma and Nana or Saba
Fire Academy of Coolio Siva, that you believe whatever calamity strikes you was never meant to miss you.
And any calamity that did not reach you was never meant to reach in the first place. This is the core of the belief of God, this is what you're supposed to believe. Whatever afflicted you have calamity, was intended for you spawn. It didn't go left or right, it was for you. This is why the masiva is a calamity is cobalt mostly. But we will see that comes from the word of saw that. What I saw that they say this word or saw that when you have a bow and arrow, and you release the arrow and hits the target right in the middle. He said Asaba Alhadeff. He hit the target right on spot.
That's what we'll see. That means, meaning it came for you and it did not intend anyone else had you will see that. So the idea of people watching for example, oh, I'm lucky I'll save them. And if they're lucky, it wasn't meant for you anyway. Even if you're millimeters away from a calamity that happened was a Netflix. People come out of intense accidents untouched. Just to scratch you said all along. How did this happen? And people in the most simple of accidents, and he's in a coma
that no Montessori can intended is that that was already overwritten. A lot of social inequality.
Now so they've been mostly been out there and physically laughing today between comedy and Ebola in America, Allah Allah.
Allah azza wa jal is sitting in salt and Hadith. Now I saw the new Muslim, a new calamity, whether it's big or small, even the earthquake that had recently occurred in Turkey, and in Syria, and another one that heat today in Turkey, in Syria, in Lebanon, most of our soldiers except those who died from among the martyrs, and to heal those that are injured and wounded. But it is this is a great calamity that has happened on Earth. Allah sortition said any calamity that strikes on earth will be unforeseen and any calamity that strikes within yourself, concerning you your wealth, your health, your family, whatever it is. Il Fe kita was already written in a book in Copley underbara
Before we even created this calamity, and other narrations would mentioned before we created the heavens and the earth was always there.
So nothing happened except that ALLAH Solutions
has just been fulfilled.
Now that a calamity is going to have, there is no benefit in not accepting this fact. Being in denial is only going to make things worse and add extra sadness and sorrow upon that person.
Now, we need to be like yeah, Oh buddy, he said,
When the calamity struck, and he lost his title, and missing boy. Unknown worries. He said for sovereign Jimmy. Some of them Janine, meaning I'm going to beautify my patients. What's the difference between patients and beautiful patients?
Beautiful patience is patience that has no complaining whatsoever.
That's beautiful patience, not comply only complaint to Allah. So should in the magical Buffy was the Illa. That's sagoon jahmene. When you do not complain to anyone, because you recognize no one has your solution, but who is going to complain? Who carries your solution?
A sovereign journey is to complete to Allah alone. And to express to Allah social your pain and your difficulty and your suffering. Like a you Allah has set up 18 years on there are more or less according to him, Allah mentioned. And during this time, he would say Allah be missiny of bull. My Lord, I can feel the pain. He didn't say my wife, I can feel the pain. My children, my people come rescue me.
He said don't be mysterious. Oh, my Lord. I can feel it. It's getting to me. One time camera hanging and you're the most merciful love.
See the kind of good 40s in Allah assertion in an excruciating moment. And in the most intense and difficult moment, is able to acknowledge that Allah is hung blocking, the most merciful, even a human who
understands the message behind the calamity.
And then it's only allowed supposed to grow you're stronger in accepting Allah azza wa jal than his names and attributes. Yes, Allah azza wa jal less afflicted me with a sickness and a pain for 18 years, he couldn't even move. And during that time, he is saying I'm taller. Hello, honey. You know how much good photos you have in Allah social during this moment. That's an achievement. saying Allah is the most merciful, in times of ease is very easy, very easy for us now to say Allah is the most merciful and ever a lecture of two three hours of Allah's mercy, humble, that's good.
But the real achievement is to see that and believe that wholeheartedly. During the most difficult moment of your life. That's what the achievement is. That like a yo by Allah is like Obama has said, what promoted them to this level other than the fact that he knew that Allah has already decreed this. And so with this point here, you need to be very careful on a few things during a calamity.
We said the third point, you must acknowledge Allah azza wa jal has already ordained this and decreed it and read it.
So do not say anything that contradicts disbelief.
Like what Michael Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to avoid of words Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam said blind or saw by Kashi anything that strikes you of calamity Falletta Who do you dare say, Love amoeba together? Ganache as our Kevin do today say, Oh, hello, I only done this and done that. Then this and this would have happened.
However, see that Allah well Masha,
just say this word in a calamity and you're safe. Say Allah has decreed. And Allah azza wa jal does what he wants. Because the word love the word if only I had done this, it opens the door of a shape on and if the door of a shape on you've opened up there pretty much you're losing your faith very soon.
And this one, I have no idea what they let many people for folding to blindly fall into it. Something happens and he says, Oh, have I only closed the door?
Then my child wouldn't have walked out and nothing would have happened deem of pain and harm. Had I only
turned off this or turned off that then this and this would have happened? Had I only done this oh if I only had sent my son to the school he would have come out like these people's children.
This what does it do? When you open the door of if and have I only find in this if I did that? When would you end because the if the possibilities I mean only
Right. So you continue if that if that if any if until a person's faith has gone all together and now this person no longer believes in something called cover wake up Don't you believe there's something called Allah had written it for you so while you only want nothing would have changed in the calamity as yet there's no point of if the now if
instead use you're trying to say cut down Allah Masha, Allah that Allah loves and he's pleased with was set up for him whom ALLAH and you said, you said to these powerful words that he said, if my body was cut up in pieces, a body cut up in pieces,
it would have been more beloved to me, then to seek to something that Allah had decreed by we should never happen.
This is a word that goes against the belief of an adult.
A self is prepared to be chopped in half and into pieces. Then to say, I wish this never happened.
And others would say up to number one of the setup said I committed a sin once. And I continued to cry over it for 30 yeas.
And he was a person of viewership. So they simply wanted to see. He said, I remember once in my life. I said to something that was of calamity to me, I wish it never happened.
What beloved Massoud only Allahu Anhu. He said,
For me to bite on a hot comb. You know what a call is? That you put your hands on it, you move your hand,
and then Mossad is ready to bite on a hot call. He's saying this would be much more beloved to me,
than to say to something that Allah azza wa jal has decreed. I wish it never happened.
The point is a seller for whom Allah understood that true belief in Kedah is for you to say,
whatever Allah has decreed for me of calamity was surely intended for me and Kadar Allah, masha fan. Anything that has missed me, was never intended for me. So humbly lay I'd actually have
as the third point. The fourth point of not paying Mohamed Omar says, shoot you will have to Muhammad Ali if he didn't compel while there were people who fear what was so good enough and banal.
what is going to help you be patient upon the calamity is for you to understand what is a loss right over you during the calamity?
When the calamity first hits, the very first thing you're supposed to do is pause, stop and ask yourself, What does Allah azza wa jal wants for me for want from me right now? What is required for me?
Because the believer is a sleeve of love 24/7 of the day, right? It's not like on the west leaves of Allah during the morning, and in an afternoon were slaves of other than Allah and then returned back into being slaves of Allah the next morning. You are asleep of Allah, the entire moment from before you were born. Until after your death, there is no single moment in your life, where you are removed from the slavery of Allah associate. But
for so long as you're a slave of Allah in every moment, that means you need to submit these commands. Wala social has commanded us to behave in certain ways in different varying circumstances about so when you go through a calamity, there is a specific worship that Allah wants from you. So you need to sit down and say I'm going through a calamity right now.
Quickly open up a quiet, open up a sunnah. What does Allah azza wa jal want from me right now.
And there is no doubt that Allah Subhan Allah wants from us something when you go through a calamity.
And that is what is obligatory and that is patience. That's what Allah wants from you. When you go through a calamity, Allah wants from your patients and that is the obligation. What does patients mean during a calamity? Very simple. Patience means only say what is pleasing to Allah, and only do what is pleasing to Allah. Now you're practicing patience during a calamity.
That's what patience is.
People's reaction to a calamity. There are four types. There are four types when a calamity hits people responding one or four times or share them with you. Number one, the first type of people are sucked up. They are displeased with Allah's calamity. How do you be displeased with Allah's calamity? saying words like
I wish this never happened. Why is Allah testing before? I didn't deserve? This is a young boy Hello? How can Allah do this thing?
These are people in Syria in Turkey, how long they've gone through so much. The last thing they need is an earthquake, and buildings to fall on their head. That's the last thing they need. Love. There are people that talk like this. All of these kinds of words and statements under the category of a person being displeased with Allah assertion, now displeased with the color of Allah, all these kinds of thought.
Intellect, did you think that you are more merciful than Allah azza wa jal to say that that's the last thing they deserve. A building collapsing over their heads at the moment, the almost more merciful than the one who created them.
Allah subhanaw taala how people think, and how people react to different calamities, they'll honor Allahu Akbar.
Even though it is that's the first stage and that's the first way in how people respond to a calamity. Whoever is displeased, Allah is displeased to Him, being displeased with a calamity in Islam is hard.
And you're going to go through the calamity anyway. So you're going to go through the sufferings in these pains. And you're going to go through another worst calamity. And that is that you're going to miss out on the guru, a huge, immense reward that you could have received, had you practice patience. So now you're just calamity upon calamity, you just wasted your life. It doesn't get better.
The second point is is patience. And that's where she that's the minimum to be patient. We said patience means the same only that which is pleasing to Allah, like god but Allah, Masha, like nearly nowhere near legalize your own, like saying and humbly like and I couldn't help. These are all words that the modern social loves, like same La Ilaha illa Allah. And that's the greatest of words to see during economics, the most beloved word, that Allah who would love to hear from the servant when he goes through a calamity. The Chroma on the tongue is what is beloved to Allah to hearing from the slave as he goes through a calamity. Like Ebola Humanity Center when he's thrown in a fire and he's,
he's in a fight, he's in a calamity. He thinks of her husband Allah when he like Yunus allergy Salam isn't a calamity. He's in the belly of a whale in the depths of the ocean in the darkness. Allah He technology today wouldn't even trick a person that is inside of the belly of the whale in the darkness of the ocean, Allahu Allah. All technology today wouldn't even track where he is. And he says, ILA in the supine demeanor for the me. This is what the Lord loves, He loves to hate on your tongue during a calamity. This is no doubt patience, you know,
faith and that's what we need to understand. And that's patients. That's the second type of patience, like, and patience is worship. You know what that means? When we say, well, if you listen to this point very carefully, because a lot of people will complain and say, I can't do this color, I can't do it. I can't be patient, it's too much luck. So long as Allah has social has made patience, in the face of calamity aware ship. Meaning most definitely you are as a believer able to be patient in any calamity that gets to because it's worth. If it's worth repeating, I'm able to do it. If I wasn't able to do it, then Allah Allah so Allah Allah has commanded us to do something we
cannot do and that's oppression. Allah azza wa jal doesn't depress any of his slaves. You understand the logic, even the fact that it is worship, to be patient in a calamity. It is something that we all can do.
All of us can do it, no excuse for anyone whatsoever.
the third level, this is high higher than patients. The third type of people
is a reward, uncredited layer solution to be pleased with the calamity of Allah assertion.
This is different to patience. Being pleased with the calamity is not where as you recommended, right? This is Israel among
worship, the sentiment maybe almost speaks about this what is available, being pleased during a calamity. Being pleased is for you. To think that whether the calamity happened or it didn't happen, it's the same with nothing really changed to that's being pleased. yawning.
If you are at the level of patience, it's not obligatory to be pleased with the patient. You may dislike it. You may say I dislike this candidate. I don't like being tested in my wealth and my health. I dislike this. But I'm patient. I'll only speak when Allah is pleased within a lonely doula.
He's pleased. That's why he hired him. This is to be pleased.
No worries. Since Allah socialists decreed it, I'm pleased with it.
Whether I was tested with my wealth or not, really it's the same for me, doesn't really change my attitude. I only grow stronger in my faith in Allah azza wa jal, that is what being pleased with his there's one more level and it's higher than that.
And that is how to love
being grateful to Allah azza wa jal for the calamity he has given what?
Now, I believe you an example.
Imagine now, I took some dirty clothes, right? I had dirty clothes. And someone came and said, Brother, give me a call. I'm going to wash them for you. Bring them up, wash, polished crystal clean white clothing. He goes, he cleans my clothes and he brings them back.
What am I going to? I'm going to thank you, Joseph.
And Hamdulillah He cleaned my coat and they are white. You see the cleansing process to clean the comb. It requires a degree of intensity.
There is intensity, even even a washing machine. When you put clothing there's something there called intense washing mode intense and it spins them in a rough manner. 1200 spins a minute.
And then they clean by the Columbia. This is what it does. When Allah azza wa jal afflicted with a calamity, you're being purified. It's like you have been put in washing machine. Intense and you've been taught, and you're spinning in this calamity. And this pain and this difficulty in their suffering and this loss and there's crying in his teeth. But at the end, when you come out of the washing machine, your heart is cleansed. It's white. What do you mean? I've said hamdulillah for the opportunity that I've been cleansed Hamdulillah I need another course when I get dirty again. That's the kind of attitude This is the fourth type of person that praises Allah Subhan Allah Allah, He
praises Allah subhanahu Medina, the example of onward numerous rudo, the Allah, I'm from among the companions.
He was traveling with a Sahaba, they were going to a Shem. And he got sick, there was an infection in his leg, one of his legs right or left, I don't know, but there was an infection. And back then, this kind of infection requires that the foot is amputated, it must be removed, otherwise, it'll spread, it'll cause death. So they said to him, I have to remove your horse, there's no choice during this alcohol. So you can go in an unconscious thing. And then we'll cut it, this is how they used to do operations.
He said no, no, I will pray when I go into surgery. amputate my, my link now. So he proved he got into surgery. And they carried out the procedure and the surgery and his foot was removed. And of course, he felt conscious, and they began to actually treat dude.
As this is happening to him, his children were coming from Medina to join him. And he had two children, they were coming on horses. One of them was thrown off the horse and kick. And as a result, you don't win that level in melee guys, you're here.
For when this team finally arrived to where all of them was rude, all the Allahu Anhu was they said Allahu Akbar, his son had died. And they just learned that he had went through the surgery and must discipline. What are we going to do? He's already gone through a calamity. Calamity. So some of them said, Let's not inform him of the death of his child or bury him later on. Oh, and for me, constitute calamities at one time is gonna be difficult.
Some set later, this is not like this is his son, he wants to prey upon him and he wants to Janessa we have to inform him, but they decided who informed me. So when he got up from an unconscious state, in remembering that he just lost the link.
They said to Him, your son has done a lot with
all of them was only Allah one.
He said words that were collected and mentioned.
He said, Oh Allah, you gave me four limbs, meaning his two legs and his two hands.
And Oh Allah, you have given me four children, because he had four children.
He said Allah, you have taken one limb and you have taken one child,
and how do they learn for what you have given me and humbly left or what you have taken away from me.
And with such words, he reached the level of hand during a calamity. There is no higher level than this. And what helps a person achieve the highest level during a calamity and that is the level of what happened. Have you reached this stage? We said there has been displeased
Patient, please. And then this is where we're all wanting to, you know, if we select at least 17 times a day we're reading and humbly Lego behind me reminding ourselves of this work, how do you reach the state or
listen to this very carefully, the only will you reach and how
is to look into the calamity that Allah tested you with, and to see how much more he has lifted for you from it.
But Allah azza wa jal tests you he said in the one in the blue are not going to be shaken. When we test we're going to test you with something of your wealth, something of worth something of health, something of a loss of life. Bishi is bad is positive, something. Meaning when Allah test you with your boss, well, you don't lose all the love, and all your business, and all your job and all the other income that never happens. When you lose your house, you don't do it all together, something
you must somehow
in other words, there is still lots of room for you to focus on what you still have. Because if Allah tested you with some, you still have a lot more room to look at what you still have. And so when you look at what you still have said 100 enough on Allah azza wa jal has kept with me, then now you're able to thank Allah azza wa jal for what he has taken away from you. That's the only way to reach the level of enhancing. Unfortunately, today what people do when they are tested, all the attention is on that little bit that has gone forgetting what Allah associate has left with them. And this is not up from Shabaab. This is something very important to recall, for the next calamity
that you go through.
dimensions should who do not have to be her ally, or to be to be her ally, he be them be number five is to understand that the calamity is as a result of your sins. Allah azza wa jal, he said, Now Solomon mostly but in America said that at any calamity that strikes you, it is because of what your hands have done. It is because of your sins, no doubt about this. Allah azza wa jal said, any calamity that befalls you, it's because of your Sims. And then he said, Well I for one, Kathy
and Allah Thrall, He forgives, and it doesn't hold you to account for meaning if Allah azza wa jal wanted to give you a calamity, according to all your sins, you perish and be destroyed long time ago.
But the calamity he gives you is because some of your sins and and I understand.
It's really strange that you hear people today feel very offended. When you say that the calamity is a result of sin. They feel offended. What do you mean, it's a result of a sin? Like, toward God? Are you saying that you're sinless, if you're the only human being on Earth walking, and you have zero sins to Nene, is is what you're trying to say.
That is no problem. To see that the calamity or inish because of your sin.
At the end of the day, we were only removed from the Paradise because of a sin.
And every calamity on Earth is because of that. Otherwise, we would have been in the Paradise and there were no calamities there because there's no sins committed in the Paradise. Pretty simple to understand. When we think the calamity has hit you because of your sins. We don't say you're a bad person. We're not saying Allah hates you. Allah is punishing you.
By us cleansing your sin.
It came because of your sin. So we'll see.
Every calamity is because of your sin. As you go through this calamity, think of this man. The divorce you go through, it's because of your sin. The health complications you go through is because of your sin, the loss of office because of your sin, but lots of whatever it is, it's because of your sins. And there's a lot more Allah azza wa jal has to give it up now, can you handle the losses, the quicker you acknowledge this and the quicker you accept this fact? You now focus in you pay your attention on what removes sins and then is undisturbed for pay attention and is default, and it will be a loved one who says manners 11 out of 11 Not a single calamity comes down except
because of a sin woman who fell in love. And the only thing that would remove a calamity is October Well, it's still for turning to a mind seeking is to give us economic kingdom as a result of a sin. What wipes away the sin. Let's still fall. So if you say a stump, busy yourself with Easter fall during the calamity
See, it works. So in the same simple reason for the calamity to be that it removes, the quicker you know at this point, the quicker the calamity goes. No longer you sit down, trying to understand what's happening. Why the Lotus no it is stop saying it's because of my sins. Stop saying this Allah loves us but
stay in your in what you want to believe in this oh goodness in this event now we all have sins, who among us dares to put his hand up and say I don't have a sin and clean from my sins? No one there is.
But then how can people would dare to say that Colombia is not because of my sin? How dare you say this Subhanallah
faith and busy yourself during this time with this the fourth and one law he did not take this lightly. And he's still far is a huge word.
One oxy will be let one stop for one more. Sip sincerely and honestly from your heart is enough to wipe away the major sin of Sheikh if you have fallen into it
didn't allow social
FNA to Buddha it Allah who is still feel older? Why do not one do not? Oh, why don't they repent to Allah and seek his forgiveness? Allah said this immediately after speaking about the major sin of a ship.
What is still follows you must have a movement between you and yourself. Stuff.
Sometimes the calamity is prolonged.
You say I'm saying stuff. Stuff, stuff. So the calamity is three. What's happening? I say Brother, you're seeking the most forgiveness Correct.
There's nothing wrong with Allah's promises. There's something wrong with how you're implementing this. Therefore, you're still holding debt. You're still far it's empty. You're still fall has no meaning has no substance to it.
You can have how do we say a snug fit along with meaning.
There's something you need to understand a note.
The main pillar of is still fall and Tober is regret. That's the main pillar. To bring life to is still hold the main pillar,
you still fall that is effective. And it's powerful is the still fall there is guilt upon regret. You must have regret when senior stuff regret from regret from three things.
Number one, you regret the fact that you dissident him. So
that's the first regret you're supposed to have these a lot. This is your this is your creed, your provider, your Sustainer the one who caused your life and the one who causes your death and no one who decrees all your affairs matters. How did you sinned against
either a stone that Allah regretting How did I disobey Him? Whether he knew who he was
I supposed to regret you're supposed
the second regret you're supposed to have
and regret that I disobeyed Him through a blessing he gave me
every sin that you and I commit is through a blessing Allah gave us
you seen through your eyes? Isn't that a blessing upon a view? You see with your hands? Isn't that a blessing Allah gave you. You see with your feet walking down haram isn't this a blessing among Egypt? You sit in with your tongue and say things that are displeasing to Allah? Isn't this a blessing among you? You're supposed to think Allah's blessings.
Not supposed to be in grateful to Allah's blessings. And being ungrateful to Allah's blessings is using the unforeseen event that's the second thing you're supposed to regret. I regret that I disobeyed Allah through a blessing he gave me. And the third regret is to regret that you disobeyed Him while knowing that he saw
how many people today are embarrassed and ashamed not to do the same because people are in the presence of people.
People don't do a scene in the presence of people. Why? Because someone saw me How humiliating and embarrassing for me to do a scene in front of this person. And who's this person anyway? What is he going to hold you to account on the day of judgment?
And how did it go? that you see in private while knowing that Allah has to
be there now hold on a fourth in that in the sense that we commit a really huge and so therefore these are the three regrets that are supposed to be alive in your heart prison pipeline sing a stone for a lot of stuff that Allah
And now that will make your form a bit more fruitful and some meaning and be even in there this kind of is default wipes away the sin a sin is worth doing the calamity is removed as early as your volleyball we allow one to see
what the other
person in the house let's quickly go through these number six have no payable mentions.
lacasa Wonder booty at the doctor will be my OB Allah who he said.
He said, For a person to know that Allah azza wa jal is pleased with his calamity and he has selected it for you. And therefore, true servitude to Allah azza wa jal necessitates that the slave must be pleased with whatever Allah azza wa jal is pleased with. Why aren't you a slave of Allah azza wa jal okay? So if Allah azza wa jal has decreed this calamity for you. That means that Allah is pleased for this calamity to be fine.
So if you're a true slave of Allah, you're going to be pleased with what Allah is, please be fine. So that's the sixth point that I'm not talking about him Allah mentions, being pleased with what Allah azza wa jal is pleased with. That's number six, on go quick so that we don't because I want you to know the 10 points number seven number number seven, we're up to number seven. And that is to do that the calamity is the near future on cell Coahuila. You probably will not only will be most happy on Rahim, OBE, Allahu Akbar. Allah says number seven. This will help you be patient during a calamity to know that the calamity is beneficial medicine given to a person from read from Allah
subhanho wa taala, who has full knowledge of what will benefit this person and who is the most merciful towards this person.
calamities my brothers and sisters in Islam are medicine. And what do we have this medicine, medicine removes illness, and it removes the pink.
You know, I'll give you an example. Someone is sick. He goes to the doctor, the doctor now diagnosis him with a specific illness. Then the doctor begins to describe brother, sister, you're supposed to take this medication and this medication. Or he might explain to him our surgical procedure is going to go through. We're going to put you to sleep. We're going to cut this limb of yours we're gonna go straight through to the bone we're gonna whatever it is, is pain. Suffering is when there's a lot of difficulty in all case. And you as a sick person is sitting right in front of the doctor's office. Yes, Chuck Norris 100% For will get the medicine, no problems. I'm ready for surgery. hamdulillah
let's go through and you'll be on point on time and you have to fast before the surgery 12 hours when everyone's ready. And you go in and you know it's going through painful, but let's go for it because there's going to be a cure and she felt afterwards that same attitude then bring it with Allah associated in the commodities. They can ever use medicine, medicine. Yeah, what does medicine do? It removes the illnesses, sicknesses of the heart, diseases of behind the scenes, the shortcomings, the major the minor scenes that all that the rebellion against Allah, the transgression against the law, all of that is disease. All that is sickness. Wala, trust me, you do
not want to stand before Allah associated with those in your heart. So Allah azza wa jal in this multi life, He is the doctor. In him, Allah says in other words, he's the one who has to launch
and he has the most merciful towards you. So he sees the slave of his 30 heart, sin for heart. He needs to be closed from the Mercy of Allah. So we'll send you medicine, send him a calamity. That is very sad has side effects has been you take medicine you might vomit, nausea, drowsiness, shortness of breath, these are some side effects of medicine, what the orientation towards holistic excellence is medicine.
And then, remember, nothing will benefit on the day of eliminate Allah had been conveniently selling. The only thing that will benefit us to stand before a love with a clean heart, a purified heart. And that's what calamities do. They purify the heart, it's medicine for the seeker.
and then number eight is nothing about him. Omar says and this is connected to the previous one. To know that after this medicine after this calamity, there is Shiva. There is healing, there is cure. There is well being just like when you go to the doctor, and you've done your surgery, and you're in the house
Through now recovering, three, four weeks later hamdulillah you're back on your feet as though nothing happened. And the calamity is the same way. The calamity hits hard. a month, two months, a year, two years, Allahu Allah, Allah knows what's good for you. And then afterwards there is Shiva. There is healing. There is cure, the hardest clean, it's closer to Allah. So as you learn the lessons of life, all Allahu Akbar, how much beauty and goodness is that, after this, there is cleansing, Allah azza wa jal, he said, the color will show you.
Maybe you dislike something, of course, you're going to dislike the calamity, to own a look on it's much better for you. It's better for you in all aspects of life, better for your body, better for your heart, better for your relationship with Allah better for your afterlife, better for your life in the grave, in every aspect, it's going to be much better for you now Subhan Allah and then the question arises here sometimes people ask, okay, then then why does Allah assertion continue to test us calamity after calamity after color, but we went through the first calamity. We went through the first round of medication and medicine and by then we got cured humbly led
to weeks later, another calamity hits hospital Allah when ammonoid
Then that ends, then something else hits from somewhere else, then that finishes now we're going to no problem. Why? Listen, listen very carefully why? I tell you something.
when human behavior is observed, if it's something incredible, humans tend to turn away from those who they don't need their service anymore.
That's a human thing. If I needed your service to solve this, my car, right and I bring you my car every six months, then I'm always in contact with you. But car requires the service. But something's flushing. I don't know what's happening. Can I bring it to you today? Tomorrow a lot quicker. You bring the car and you know, and you're always in relationship with him. Why? Because you're in need of a service.
But then I found someone else. Oh, so I'm not going to call the brother anymore. I didn't have any service with him finished.
Like imagine, imagine.
If that you lived a life in where you receive one calamity from Allah had no calamity after that.
You will find yourself and not in need of Allah anymore. And the one who finds himself not in need of Allah and turns away from Allah has destroyed himself. So it's from the Mercy of Allah that he continues these calamities upon us so that we always find a need to turn to Allah associate. And you'd be honest, when you're with yourself, when is the time in which you must turn to Allah solution? Wouldn't everyone here without doubt, say during calamity.
And we said at the beginning of the lesson that the faith strengthened it grows in a time of calamity, even it's from Allah's mercy, that he would send calamity after the calamity said that you're always in need of Him. Imagine a moment in life where you don't tell him. You need to ask yourself when you went through times of ease. Did you remember Allah much? What did you do in these times? How many moments of the day in the night when you live comfortably? Did you forget about Allah? And you were heedless about Allah azza wa jal.
And you did not care about the voluntary deeds and the voluntary acts. And you delight the obligation saying, Well, so long as it's all going good Muslim, I'm doing something right in life. Almost got it all together for me. So you know what I can kick back a little bit. Isn't that the attitude that settles when we're living in times of ease? So trauma surgeons mercy, that he puts these calamities upon us so that we always find this need to turn to Allah soldier.
And another thing that ever was your MO Allah He answers, he says, sometimes the calamity is prolonged. Calamity hit one month, two months, three months, one, two years. 10 years, hasn't finished. Why? Have a pleasurable hammer hula NCCS
perhaps that person
has his heart still attached to someone that he believes will solve his calamity.
So you're going through a calamity and it's prolonging because your heart is still attached to someone or something? You believing that relief is going to come through this.
And Allah azza wa jal prolongs the calamity until you learn your lesson, and let go of everyone and everything and believe wholeheartedly that my calamity will
only be solved by Allah. Then relief comes.
So the the calamity prolongs because your heart is still attached to all of them a lot and you continue to prolong until you learn this lesson and detach completely from everyone. Subhan Allah beautiful answer from original Rahim Allah.
Two more minutes, Allah number nine. Allah he says that the believer should know when the calamity strikes. It's not there to destroy him. You should know this, Allah azza wa jal is not sending the calamity to destroy you. Allah azza wa jal is simply simply to test you to see if you're patient, then congratulations, congratulations, you are now qualified to be a true servant of Allah, social. And if you feel then such people are not true slaves of Allah subhanho wa taala. You need to understand this. They cannot be this only to test you as you can. That's when you throw away a whole unknown left through the people assume Allah azza wa jal is going to leave them to say we believe we
believe in Allah who will test them. So that's the point. The test is not key for punishment, the anger of Allah all of this is upon the character that doesn't have any hate upon the believer. It's a test. Let's see, what does he do? If he's patient and Hamdulillah? You are elevated ranks with Allah and you're a true servant of Allah azza wa jal, you will see the result on the Day of Judgment. You fell and your last dinner. Unfortunately, you do not qualify to be from the servants of Allah azza wa jal. Maybe you do better in next test. That's the whole point of a test, as if nothing about him Omar mentioned. And finally, he says nothing about him Allah that the servant
should know that Allah azza wa jal nurtures his sleeves upon ease and hardship and fevers and trials. And thus Allah azza wa jal wants to bring up servitude from the slave in every situation that he goes through. We go through situations, we go through good times, times of ease, we go through times where and why showering us with fevers, we go through trials, and in each one of these stages, Allah wants some servitude out of you. In good times, Allah wants sugar from you, in hard times, Allah wants something from you. So this is what Allah azza wa jal wants in a time of a calamity he wants to see how do you react to the varying circumstances in your life? The quicker you
learn this lesson, the better it is for a person and the more fruitful the calamity is we ask Allah assertion that he allows to implement what we have heard when I asked him subhanho wa Taala to lead us on our calamities and you asked him SubhanaHu wa ala to green grant us ease in all our affairs. We asked him Subhanahu wa Taala to accept our gathering to forgive our sins to forgive our shortcomings. And we asked him Subhanahu wa Taala to make make us people of the paradox to make us have a sovereignty and asking SubhanaHu wata Allah to grant us steadfastness and firmness in our deen in our email until the day we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahu Alem some Allahu wa Salam o
