Level man have him come to a level of denial I mean salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah and he also be a humane or praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala me the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam still follows my dear respected brothers in Islam.

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

With a first question we ask is, what is your intention coming here today? And what is your intention for attending every lesson? These are matters that were supposed to remind ourselves from time to time, what's the intention that you come with? Any there are some people intention, come to pray, listen to something and move on. What's the what's the actual intention? When you attend the Listen, when you attempt to Juma? When you attend something that reminds you of Allah subhanho wa Taala something about your deen

00:01:02--> 00:01:49

for me my intention for me myself. I know when I'm here I'm here. legasov hana hautala preaching Allah subhanho wa Taala is Dean and for me this is a matter of life and death. For me it's a matter of life and death. Loss of Hannah hautala you said in the poet fanola forum in Cooley forgotten minimum bar if a two liter for COVID De Niro como la la la Mia. Oh, Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned in the Quran, that some people from a community are supposed to go and learn. They're supposed to go and learn, learn their deep learning the stammer learning teachings will go on Well, how do you what for so that when they come back to their people, Leon viro como la him, to warn the

00:01:49--> 00:02:32

people if they come back to them lahoma alone, so that the people might take a reminder and take heed and take the warning seriously and better themselves. Allah subhanho wa Taala in this ayah when he described a dour, he used the word Nevada, and Nevada comes from Nuffield wouldn't have you heard yet he severely lead Allah subhanho wa Taala considered a dour she had very severely led wouldn't you heard is a matter of life and death. Therefore Tao is a law is a matter of life and death. And so when you sit he has someone that attends regularly listening to lessons wherever you are, whether here or somewhere else. When you attended Yani solid humor. humor. When you listen to something

00:02:32--> 00:03:14

about Allah subhanho wa Taala. What's your intention? What is the intention, the intention with each and every single one of you is supposed to be that he reforms and rectifies his relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. First and foremost, so that allows or shall gives you the success of this lesson. Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says his wallet and he said, he read Islam. You are 50 level but you know that when a lot of soil speaks about the husband and wife, and when there's problems between the husband and wife, a lot of Zoysia Lee says if both sides the husband and the wife, if they both intend reconciliation, yeah, there's problems between them. If they both intend genuine

00:03:14--> 00:03:53

intention from inside, that they want to work things out, and they want to make things better. You are 50 level but you know, Matt, Alonzo Hill would give them success. Overnight, all of a sudden, they will come out of their problems and they would rise over their problems. This is very important that the intention is supposed to be there. Similarly, when someone wants to slur my law when someone wants to rectify his relationship with a law, when someone wants to amend this relationship between him and the loss of Hannah who are Donna, and mend that broken bond, you are 50 level but you know that a lot of social would give him success into every lesson you attend. You're supposed

00:03:53--> 00:04:23

to indent in it, redo the sledgehammer Allah, that you want to rectify and reform your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the intention. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us the concept. Yanni the grand concept of adobo, Illa adobo you understand what a dove is? You're sitting here today is supposed to be in the intention of a doorway, the law. Why, Linda the word Dover, it comes from the word data and data means

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

what does it mean What?

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

What does it mean? It means in the Arabic language it means to return Yanina, the idea is that a person has become so far away from a law that he requires Adobe to return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. winter when you're sitting in the lesson, learning about Amar, you go out of this lesson, and you've taken some kind of knowledge that brings you closer and closer to Allah azza wa jal closer and closer to your relationship with Allah. Ethan you're gathering here tonight today in this morning. Sitting in this morning should be in the end.

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

Have a debate on loss of data, what data to go back to a loss of data? What data we want you to be asked the last panel data to accept from us all my brothers in Islam and less than any inshallah tada a brief is about a common problem that affects, I would say the majority, probably all of us a problem that affects all of us. And what did Islam come with? to change our aspect and our attitude about this problem? What is the problem? The problem is simply in in the words of people,

00:05:31--> 00:06:11

I want a closure to my difficulties, this is the problem. These are words that are on the tongues of the people, I want a closure to my difficulties. What do I mean by this? Each and every single one of us sitting here today has a problem in his life has a difficulty, no matter how big it is, how small it is, it differs, the size of the problem differs from person to person. But there's an attitude in the dark of the mind that you feel you're restricted from doing other things until you close this problem. And you always have the people always have in their minds that, well, I can't move your life, I need a closure to this problem. Someone has a sickness, I need to close this

00:06:11--> 00:06:55

problem. And again, the life is miserable. Now until he finishes this problem. Someone has daughters and sons in his family. And now he's faced by a difficulty. I need them to get married. So I can close this problem in my life. Someone has a divorced daughter in his house. This is a big problem. And I'm waiting for the day where I can end this problem in my life and find someone for someone goes through a financial difficulty in life. And I'm waiting, I'm waiting to resolve this problem. I want to closure to my problem. People husband and wife among each other in the family even call the call Allah No, we have a problem among me and wife, my wife, we have a problem. We need closure to

00:06:55--> 00:07:37

this problem. I want to close it off. Plus I want to rest and I want to find peace and satisfaction like everyone else. I want to close problems, then you close the problem in life and another one comes up and then you want closure to it. And also on life is like this, you realize this and the people yeah, and if you're not able to have the right mentality and the mindset, if you're not able to have the right attitude towards these difficulties and obstacles in life, what happens? Look what people do. Look what people do to themselves, they resort to taking pills to kill themselves, result to suicide handed to them, nothing is going to end their problems other than death. It's just this

00:07:37--> 00:08:19

this me dying would finish my problems would finish my difficulties, my pains, that can from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that he sent down a plan to us and he sent us also loss of Allahu Allah. The day the plan came down was the day of last mercy came down. This is how it's supposed to be viewed.

A lot of social he said, Love God, Hakuna insane if he gathered, we created the human being difficulty, either life from day one. until you die is all difficulty. There is no such thing as I want a closure to my difficulties. There's no such thing. The day you came up from your mother was a difficult day. You can't remember the pain of that day. But ask your mother she'll tell you a crying, a shavon came and slept each and every single one of us dies. It's the beginning of life. What are you gonna say? No,

00:09:04--> 00:09:43

why? I just came out? Why have I been slept my Shabbat? Why this is life. This is how it's gonna be. That's the pains of it. You're crying from the very beginning for what reason? You got to get used to it from the very beginning. Then you begin to suckle and you find difficulty in that. And then you begin to walk and you find difficulty in that you trip over you fall you start back up, then you start eating and you have difficulty in that it's the first time you start eating. Then you start conversing with others you find difficulty when you start learning, ABC alphabet that put words together, put sentences together, put paragraphs together, learning the learning experience becomes

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

a difficult experience. Then you have all of school to finish, then you think my difficulties are going to finish by the end of year 12 colosse. I'm done after the HSC then you'll begin with another difficulty in life. You got University, then you finish that and you take a degree and you begin

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

In your studies and you begin some kind of work, then you want to get married you think that's it, cause that'll finish your difficulties in life, brother will not fit on our on our outside world people is you know, want to get married, and inshallah it's gonna solve all my problems. If you get married a job the lead divorce rate is higher than the marriage rate, then you'll find all of a sudden that there's an issue, I need a stop to this house I can't I've married once I divorced twice, I divorced the third time, and I just want to get married and settle and relax and children and just see myself in this like these. These these advertisements they make and marry a wife and a

00:10:36--> 00:11:02

husband sitting together with two children on a like a barbecue scene and outside outdoor scene. That's it. This is the dream, this is the happy life and this this image has been sold to us and you're just running after it. And you never see it in your life. You begin you your aspirations our mankind have made of a standard of aspiration. If you begin to fail in life, what's the problem, this is the issue than your children and once I marry off my children, I'll rest and

00:11:03--> 00:11:41

and then the day you die, the day you die, the day you die is a difficult day. And you think that the day that comes out it's going to be easy. It's a difficult day, that any any the way the soul comes out is over four stages. It's first gathered in the body. Then it's gathered from the hand from the feed from the legs, it's gathered in one place, then it begins to push a lot of social leases have either Bella hottie taraki it reaches authority which is here, right here, the the the collarbone, right he is here when it reaches here, this is where the pain is. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala he says

00:11:43--> 00:12:28

that the soul begins it reaches here with another loop and when it comes out as it rises up in this moment is where the painful part is. And then when it comes out either in nazjatar Hong Kong, or national park, you know, slide a trip down, it comes out effortlessly smoothly. This is where Allah Subhana Allah is with the believer. And then after that people think that suicide death, I will die and it'll end by miseries and worries and that will cover and what happens in the grid. The serious difficulties begin now with the metal cover up the grave in where it restricts and it squeezes itself on the person that's inside. Whether a believer or a non believer in all experience it to

00:12:28--> 00:12:49

learn that there are difficulties in the grief as well while they will cover and then after this will occur in the to questioning of the angels that come and question you among dinoco questions is not going to be easy. And if the angels that come in if they're not wearing any hacker had an alien coming in to sell them on a common

look like.

00:12:54--> 00:13:39

They look like they come in they ask questions and they move on. And then after this coming up from the grief and difficulty, people are drowning in the sweat of their sins, and then Elisa upon Allah Allah wa Salaam until you enter the paradise to all of this is going to be difficult in this life in the grief on the hereafter on the plains. Los Angeles's luck of Hanukkah, insanity, Africa. Even the first point is to realize and recognize tests are coming upcoming difficulties are always going to be there. There is no such thing as a closure to difficulties in life. A lot of soldier Lee said when a blue can be shelter he will hide if it was not blue gum blue calm we will test you will

Because for most people, that's their state right now. They see what is going to happen in the future. What's going to happen to myself, what's going to happen to my children?

Even the news reporter himself at the end, last two, three minutes that will say into some good news now, I'll give you some good news in one two minutes, and then come back tomorrow to Danny have another depressed life, a life of worries and fears and so on. It was never like this in the past people didn't know the news in the past. wherever you live, that was your news. That's it. No one would give you news from there and from this country and from that country in all of this, it instills worry and fear in the people. People

00:15:50--> 00:16:03

change the entire lifestyle. When they hear about something like this. People want to move away from one area to another when they hear about things like this thinking that peace and tranquility and the life is going to be wherever

00:16:04--> 00:16:17

he says Hey, no matter guru de como la, wherever you are, this will come to you. It'll come to you wherever you are, the difficulties are going to come no matter where you are. Either. We need to understand from the very beginning, when a blue one and a blue one accomplish a

A father will die a mother will die a son will die a brother, a sister, someone that's close all of these are the difficulties of life that allows origin tests a person with this is the ID you need to understand that these are matters that are going to continuously happen. When a lot of Xhosa described below him, either you sell them a certain bucket or if you've done a

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

bad job below him. Before He even

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

went through the test for the ID is

00:17:27--> 00:17:43

we start with good news. There is good news. And and I'm very positive and optimistic and hopeful that the one who is going through tests and pains and difficulties and he's able to acknowledge them and accept them in his life. There's good news

00:17:45--> 00:18:09

that love love such a people and loves Danny people like this and the use of a lavalier He will send them he said in the Hadith. In the law that I have been called manipulable. If allows origin was to love people. He tests the pharmacopoeia federal report. Whoever is pleased with the last test allows origin is pleased with him. Woman Sahaba father,

00:18:10--> 00:18:33

and anyone who's displeased that Allah subhanho wa Taala is displeased with him. Then he they didn't understand the meaning of life. Life was supposed to be difficult. A lot of soil when he described the paradise he said what Allahu yet do Ella daddy Sam, one of the names of the Paradise is down a set em set out what does that mean after solid desert Loma

00:18:35--> 00:19:13

Linda Sarah, Sarah means the peaceful, the peaceful. When peace means when you're free from pains and worries that's what peace is a law called the paradise doubt because in there, there is celeb until you get there there is no center before all of this scenario would be mixed with the difficulty but entirely 100% closure and problems and finally 11 tranquility. There is no such thing. As love we have the ruler there is set up love him down to Serbia in the beam. Salaam in the paradise. People are free for mores.

00:19:14--> 00:19:58

People are free from pain. People are free from sickness. People are free from death. There is no death. There is no old age, there is no financial difficulty. There is no eating out of hunger. The people of the paradise eat purely from enjoyment of life. No one gets hungry in the paradise. There is no need to sleep. There is no need for anything. No need for worry. No need for anything that had a devil celeb over there. It's a different life. No ma'am till we reach de la Xhosa doesn't promise any setup in this life. There's no Santa Lucia lobato the only Salaam you'll find is in the Chroma who subhanho wa Taala moments where Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

He mentioned that

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

reality in

00:20:04--> 00:20:13

a minute, hope you enjoy one up submitted. And while you're on campus, you're allowed to have a sheet of slavery. And we said that it was so powerful and so long are they gonna send me said in the law either.

00:20:15--> 00:20:56

That's the first thing how to deal with this issue that you accept it. change your mindset and your attitude. Understand that this is life, this is what life is all about these tests, they could be for short periods, they could be for longer periods, they could be small, not a big issue in life, they could be massive and huge your life, they could come later, they could come now a lot one, one is resolved, another opens, another can open as the first one hasn't been resolved, this is how it's going to happen. And this is a sign of a lot of xeljanz love on a person, so long as he lovely, so long as he's pleased with what a lot of soldiers had given him. Now,

00:20:57--> 00:21:15

once a person is pleased, and accepts these difficulties and trials and tribulations in life, one of the gifts that a lot of soldiers bestows upon such people is that he allows them to deal with these problems in a professional manner.

00:21:16--> 00:21:36

You're able to deal with this problem in a professional manner. At least slam teaches us how do you take a difficulty which is perceived as something negative, and turn it into something positive? How do you do that? A lot of social he says, in a man nursery, you saw the man

00:21:37--> 00:21:53

with a loser, which is difficulty there is going to be useful, which is ease, not ease after the difficulty. With the difficulty there'll be ease in Amman or seducer. And then it was repeated again in number and

00:21:54--> 00:21:58

why was the I repeated? You know when you when you have love for someone

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

and you repeat yourself so that you calm them down. Only for example, if someone is worried, and you come in, you pat your shoulder up. And he said to him, brother, don't worry, don't worry, it's going to be fine. It's going to be fine. You repeat yourself. This repetition when you repeat yourself. It's an implication of your love and compassion and gentlemen steam. Allah subhanho wa Taala when he led the method and Allah Allah azza wa jal is in love with one man, he's the most gentle and the most compassionate. But when he wants to get any calm down the server, this is repeated. For a number of nurses you saw in Nevada, you saw a lot of socialist repeating it. And you're supposed to

00:22:40--> 00:22:55

understand from this, that it's calming the believer down, that it's alright, with the difficulty, a lot will inject it with a lot of ease, and he's going to inject it with a lot of ease and he repeated this twice. Now.

00:22:56--> 00:23:07

If you flick through the Quran, from the beginning to the end, you look into the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to find that that exactly was the case. But you know,

00:23:09--> 00:23:53

wait for the difficulty to arrive. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala is ease would be with you know, having the fear of the difficulties to come in life. This is by yourself. You know, there are people that fee fee, the fee the concept of fee Yani there's no problem in his life. But he just sits down and he's fearing he's worried what's going to happen and then this such a person lives in misery. Then the difficulty hasn't happened yet. Wait, when it happens, Allah subhanho wa Taala is tranquility upon you with the certain you'd learn how you'd be able to deal with your problem. Now why would you be something that still hasn't happened yet? If you need to understand the living for

00:23:53--> 00:24:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala you live in the manner of loss or she wants you to do and you engage yourself? And you busy yourself physically? legend soprano Madonna, remember shirtless Emma Damien, Mo long he says

00:24:08--> 00:24:48

that the one who doesn't busy himself with victory lap, and he just keeps to himself. And he has moments in life where he's just silent, doesn't do anything. You know, what this does? It brings was to share about adults. It brings us closer to shape on shape on begins to give you as well as what's going to happen later on what will happen tomorrow. But when you when you keep your mind and your tongue occupied, basically there is no there's no there's actually no room in your mind to think of anything else that was supposed to show up and goes away. That's very true. It's very true. Sit to yourself and don't do anything. Watch where your mind goes. Watch where your mind is going to take

00:24:48--> 00:24:50

you to the most horrible things.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

The only way you're going to protect your mind from these negativities is to keep it busy. And the best thing to keep it busy with is belay.

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

More than

00:25:01--> 00:25:15

that so look if you find the case for example in the area we're in we're in a blue and accomplishing a mental health field you're the end of the ad the next ad that come after lazada Lee says in the software will not what am insha Allah

00:25:17--> 00:25:56

the very famous as of one or the blue or near completion in mineral whole field you are y'all know this air, but then want to add after it in no software? What not what Anisha? What's our software will Marwa which is seen in and what's that have to do with one unemployed nut condition in Morocco? Why is it right after it? Because the story of a sofa one model is a story of a woman that went through difficulty in life is a story of a woman that alarm tested. The idea just before said when an upload Neko alarm social is going to give us an example of an issue that happened to one of our last creation.

00:25:58--> 00:26:14

Ibrahim alayhis salam leaves his family, his wife, and his newborn is married and he set up in the desert in the dead barren desert. no water, no food, no people nothing. He left them for a lot and he left.

00:26:16--> 00:26:57

And he said, this is a last command. And she said even lay your the yarn along. If that's what the Lord commanded you to leave us here in certain depth. This is certainly being left in desert his certain death. The only thing you're waiting for is how are you going to die by hunger or dehydration or something else or a wild beast is going to come and eat you you're just looking which which way you're going to die. In them a death is certain in a in a place like this death is certain. So she said so long as Allah has commanded you to go and leave us here. Lay over Yama, Allah, Allah azza wa jal would preserve us would protect us. And then she went up to us when her

00:26:57--> 00:27:34

baby was crying, needs to eat needs to drink. She went up to a sofa, and then from a sofa. sofa Marois seven times. A sofa on Motorola is a place where a lot of social answers the call of the distress. She looked at aside to Samsung had come out a lot give her thumbs up. You see in the difficulty in a manner through your salon. You see when they happened, a lot of social use or was there some some came out? She began to drink with some some is what is a unique special water. And the reason the mama salami says

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

when she fell

00:27:37--> 00:28:30

by matambi and its food, some of his food he can live on some of them has nutrients in it that would satisfy a person just like food would do. This is what Zamzam is, for some some was their food and their drink. Sure food is a part of our diet, when a loss or shall decrease upon you a difficulty and a hardship and a tribulation. We said he injects it with us. In our big lobby Li buryatia Allah azza wa jal khuddam is never separated from his gentleness. Allah is always always always joined and combined with his gentleness, look at the example of hijabi olana ohsms and coming up from nowhere from unexpected Allah azza wa jal when he says yes, Sha la, la La, La La, La La Maharaja, we also

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

come in the zip you know, the

00:28:34--> 00:28:38

agencies, anyone who is Allah has believed in Allah, Allah azza wa jal dream.

00:28:39--> 00:29:25

Yes, Allahu Maharaja, you will make an exit away out for him, and he will provide for him from a way he did never ever, ever assume. Did he ever assume this? Who would have assumed Zamzam would be the solution? And zum zum is still there today. So that when you and I pass by it, we remember that Allah has his origins, he is always with us in times of difficulty. That's why zum zum is that that's why our motto is that that's why we have been commanded that we do parallel between Safa and Marwa said that the first thing you remember is this, that in Nevada Rosario salon, that's what we're supposed to remember. When when she is once a lifetime upon everyone, so that when you go

00:29:25--> 00:29:36

there, you recognize him. You take this lesson, and it's supposed to live with you forever, is supposed to live with you forever. That's the case of haricot you find the case of you know, Sally, Sarah,

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

you know, Sally, Sam,

00:29:40--> 00:29:56

he's in this ship. It ends up in the middle of the ocean, the ship becomes really heavy. The people on the ship realize that they're supposed to unload things from the ship if they go in to live and survive. So they throw all their belongings off the ship.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

Then they realize that some human beings have to come up first.

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

Well, otherwise it's about to sink. So, you know, Sally, you send them volunteers to throw himself off. Because he came late. He came last on the ship. So they said, No, no, no, I'm gonna be in LA. You're the Prophet and Messenger of Allah. Stay here. We'll do a raffle. So they put names on a paper

00:30:20--> 00:30:48

a couple whatever it is a raffle. And they take out first name. Eunice, how do you set up? Yeah, we can't do it. Let's try it again. And again, you know, Sally, you set up a third time you know, Sally, you set up eventually, you know, Sally, you Sam is ready to vote. He jumps off the boat. Well, most of what Allah has sent away, because it's not a coincidence. It just got there. This is a lot of gentleness. Because the Rila came it opened its mouth a lot, but the biggest screenshot of

00:30:49--> 00:31:03

it opened its mouth and swallowed him. And it went down into the depths of the ocean. He's living the darkness of the ocean, the darkness of the light and the darkness of the belly of the whale,

00:31:04--> 00:31:16

photo mat, la social COVID Boulet now as you can see that Judas Ali is set up, as reached rock bottom in his life literally is going all the way down. Now.

00:31:17--> 00:31:34

This is, this is a difficult experience. No one on Earth was going through a difficulty like you know, soldering is sometimes difficulty when he was in the belly of the whale as it's going down. The first thing on his mind was La ilaha illa superionic. I

00:31:35--> 00:31:39

mean, this was the first words on his mouth.

00:31:40--> 00:31:45

All of a sudden, getting in the in the biggest problem in his life.

00:31:47--> 00:32:32

He doesn't have the means to rescue himself. No one has the means to rescue him. Even technology until today, if a whale sold you today, technology today won't even be able to locate where you are. Tell us your unfinished. JACK Can he resorted to Allah subhanho wa Taala social safety. You know, he didn't resort to worldly means. He didn't resort to worldly means you see the Imagine you're in the whale. Imagine you ate the oil. The people today what's the first thing they resorted to only means to a worldly solution? called someone in your difficulty? Go to someone in Nagoya Eunice Alayhi Salam waitomo subhanho wa Taala first with the ticker of is La la la.

00:32:33--> 00:32:57

La Sara is saying I will not forget you in times of difficulty. This is what La La Land means. When he says it. How does he say it? He says it with the intention of La Ilaha Illa. And meaning in the most difficult time I will look for the ideal Vicar and that's the first thing on his tongue La La Land. And then he goes on to say so parodic,

00:32:58--> 00:33:46

perfect perfection belongs to you. That's what 200 means. Perfection belongs to you. Get into can you say that? In the most difficult time in life? To say Allah is perfect. Allah is not the reason for why I have fallen into the problem I'm falling in is the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then you'll notice in the statement by saying in the body mean, I am the one that wronged myself. I am the wrongdoer. I am the sinner. I am the one that imperfect. I am the one that deserves to be where I am in this difficulty and trial. Can you say that? It can you face your difficulties with this Likud La ilaha illa superamerica in Nico bollini this is what saved infrastucture para. We

00:33:46--> 00:34:28

answered his call for step number one is che now hoomin alum and we saved him from his difficulty and from his calamity, okay, then he can kill me. And this is how we're going to rescue the believers in this Vicar is not special for him in the time of difficulty. Allah said workaholic and in the same manner we saved him with this liquid with this attitude of use, in the same manner non GMO meaning we save the believers as well. liquidy said La Ilaha Illa. And he didn't even say La la la la. He said La la la. See, there's a difference. When you say la ilaha illa Allah of the name Alon is the proper name of the one who we worship.

00:34:29--> 00:34:52

That's that's the noun. But when you see and it's the pronoun. And when you see the word until you're referring to someone that's close to you. Like for example, if I want to call this brother, we say and if I'm going to speak to someone that's far away until you doesn't work, you'd have to mention him by name. Yeah. Ibrahim comm for example, you do that? No matter if someone is close to you say,

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

you know Sally has sent me saying La Ilaha Illa. And he feels the closeness of Allah.

00:35:00--> 00:35:47

Then from the names of Allah is Allah Karim. Allah socialist al Karim Karim. He feels the closeness of Allah even in the most difficult of times. That today people what do they think in the most difficult of times? They feel that Allah has let them go. A lot of social is very, very far away from them. A lot of soldiers must be angry with me must be upset. This is why I'm in trouble I mean, hey begins to blame a lot So again, we're you know, Salah is Salam teaches us that in the midst of difficulty, he still realizes a lost closeness and he acknowledges it, in his words, La Ilaha Illa. And it says, do you sing Allah? The difficulty I'm in is not going to make me more concerned than

00:35:47--> 00:35:59

your thicker. When he says La la la la, la. He said, Have you seen that my concern with a lot of soil is greater that my concern of the well,

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

any he's not worried about the difficulty. He's not concerned about the difficulty. He's concerned about the color and the relationship he has with alone. A lot of soil he says in sort of the software, funnily enough, who can I mean, and Sabine Louisa FIBA me he in a yo yo buffoon? doodles, Allah He said, like this, had Eunice Holly he said I'm not being from among Sabine and Musa being from those that are close to Allah azza wa jal from those that worship Allah, from those that are where love wants them to be from those that do not they love, love is a fever, we eat a meal by phone, you would have remained in the belly of that wheel until the day of judgment. Yeah, and he

00:36:46--> 00:37:20

would have remained in his difficulty until the last day, nothing would have solved that nothing would have put a closure to his difficulty. His difficulty would have remained with him. And then I went when your heart is busy, busy, busy killer. Even in the most difficult of times, a lot of soldiers would find a way out for you. In times of difficulty, this is where your concern is supposed to be extraordinary. More than other times, not an entire 180 degrees turn back and candle a person doesn't know what law is.

00:37:21--> 00:37:32

We learned this from the cases of the prophets. Ibrahim alayhis salam is thrown in a fire, fire fire fire is supposed to burn. That's a difficulty. Like if you saw

00:37:34--> 00:38:12

him on fire be peaceful and cool on the below him. Two things both of them are cinammon if it was Bolden only cool, you would have froze to death. If it was solid and peaceful without being cool, he would have been but he would have felt the pain of being burned he would have just been that can do it together. Cooney, Bowden wasallam and safety by the legacy of Madonna. But don't forget, as he was thrown in the fire, the first word he said was what has spurred on law mckeel Yanni caffiene, Allah, Allah is enough for me.

00:38:14--> 00:38:22

This is how he faced this difficulty. My brothers in Islam, you're supposed to face your difficulties basically lead with the concern of Allah

00:38:23--> 00:39:02

and obey the letter of the law. I knew he was on the battlefield on the day on the day of watch this on the day of the battlefield. And they were companions that were protecting in the vehcile alojado Center. There was about 1212 of them. This is in the Battle of when the believers began to lose what we don't call it a law a loss. But this is how it's been described in the books of sila, but it was kind of the believers now weren't having the upper hand they did not have the upper hand the believes the disbelievers have turned from around holiday. Do you know the story? He basically he killed those that archers they came down the believers started to run away of metal their loved one

00:39:02--> 00:39:39

was from among them and other Sahaba that ran when NaVi salam wa sallam went to the back and 11 companions now are protecting him. So Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to them, who would defend me? What someone one of them said me, he went to the front. He fought until he got killed. The other one came in fought until he got killed, fought until until 11 of them went forward and they all got killed. Who remains and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Pearl Harbor have a dilemma for them how old they are luevano now he's going to take the honor of defending Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he stepped forth, and he began and never saw Selim said that he

00:39:39--> 00:39:45

fought the fighting of 11 men. That's the strength of both halben are at level they love on him.

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

Until he fought, he fought, then his finger got cut off as he's fighting his finger cut off. But have you said for color his his What is his mean? It means Yeah, he said bye

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

This, the basic normal reaction would come out when you're via when your fingers cut off. But then take your prick microphone, that's what you say, mentioned a finger coming off. So he said what everyone would say. Like this for newbies Allahu alayhi wa sallam said team and in Niccolo Bismillah no fap kalmar aka, had you said Bismillah the angels would have raised you if they angels, YALI. This is, maybe if the seed was in battle, you'd expect because angels were embedded. They came down to Danny, they came down and fought alongside the believers, they were angels, maybe you can understand in that context that unbeliever would have raised him in that

00:40:45--> 00:41:01

way now just 11 have died. The only protector for suicide solemn journey on earth on the ground was from heaven obey the law, and the disbelievers have gathered and the believers half of them have ran away back down Medina and the belief is in good shape. 70 half died.

00:41:02--> 00:41:19

Truth is broken blood coming out of his face. In the midst of extreme difficulty. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam still has the power to remind us of a law and say to you if you just said Bismillah law of art can occur

00:41:20--> 00:41:29

in times of difficulty where your mind is supposed to be when your attitude your focus is supposed to be. It's supposed to be below Bismillah

00:41:31--> 00:41:37

lucky boy he Molly's set up, let you let her learn to Suhana came economy navali me like

00:41:38--> 00:41:47

this is this is where your mind is supposed to be busy and occupied by decree law in the law socialist wonder as the solution to every problem.

00:41:48--> 00:42:19

To every problem how many sicknesses today, doctors haven't found the cure for them. If you see how much you require loss of how do you see how much you're in need of a smaller Chevy, Chevy in your in your in your life. So how long every name of allah Xhosa, you and I can't live without? Well, lucky there are names of Allah, that without them we would die. There are Names of Allah we cannot live without. These are from the names of a lot of curry, Sherif Ali Mooji.

00:42:22--> 00:42:29

These are Names of Allah we can't live without, have you taken advantage of these names of a lot Zoysia have we taken advantage of them?

00:42:30--> 00:42:43

We're supposed to take advantage of them in the most difficult of times, not have a negative attitude towards difficulties in life. Positive Attitude of habit. If you look into the story of us having

00:42:44--> 00:42:53

you know they were wanted, because they did not worship the idols during the time of celebration of worshipping the idols. They ran away with their Deen, they ran away.

00:42:54--> 00:43:04

And as they ran on, you know this story, they were presented, they ran out of prison and they ended up were at a cave. They imagined this. Imagine you're entering a cave.

00:43:05--> 00:43:44

You don't know. When's the next time you're going to eat? How long are you going to be in the cave, the entire community is looking for you. And if they grab these people of the cave, who ordinary people just like you and I, except that this story was special, because what I'm about to share with you, if they were grabbed the next thing that was going to happen. You're welcome. They were going to be stoned to death. That's it. That was the capital punishment of the time. So what happens they get to the cave. What's the cave? A lot of what's inside? What snakes live inside? What spiders live inside? What beast lived inside. There's no source of light.

00:43:45--> 00:44:02

When the sun sets, what's going to happen? How long are we going to be in there for when are we going to come out? Is the army going to get us or not? So many negative things can happen. But have all these things happened yet? No. So they did not think about it.

00:44:03--> 00:44:10

They did not sit among each other and discuss it next to me. Why is this a problem? You're not hungry. Now. Why do you think

00:44:11--> 00:44:33

they did not sit down and discuss? What if we get caught? What's going to happen? They didn't discuss it. It hasn't happened yet. So you know what they did? As soon as they entered the cave. Well, let me be honest to yourself, would he even imagine yourself doing this? They entered Allahu Allah what future they're facing. They got into this cave.

00:44:34--> 00:44:48

And they said Allah azza wa jal he said, Wait, that doesn't Whoo hoo Mama, a llama. They told each other for oil and gas. Let's go resolve to the cave. The first thing they said to each other young shore. Nakamura buku.

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

Are you here in America, Morocco. And they set it in a way where it's definitely young shown by the judge and they call it a Jism Yeah.

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

Just a bit like you're saying you're guaranteed confirmed piece of information, you're unsure. Omar is going to spread his mercy upon us. How I don't know you're unsure. Like I'm gonna book a meeting. And they said, Well you hate let come in America Morocco, you hate means to mold something, meaning Allah azzawajal is going to take this difficult nasty situation of ours, and mold from it. Middle Falcon and Falcon is a pillow. a pillow implies comfort, peace and satisfaction law. He's going to take this, this difficulty of ours and turn it into a source of tranquility and peace for us. That's it. That's the last words they said and they slept upon these words. What happened for the next 300

00:45:44--> 00:46:28

and plus yeas, Allah is with him. put them to sleep alone, turn them left and right. So the veteran developed bedsores right after them, what are Shem says the sun would come out, the rays of the sun would hit the mouth of the cave and then they would twist so that they don't burn in our bear said if the sun was designed upon them for 300 years, they would have burned and then when it goes from the other side will either go home and cold it loads them It gives them some sunlight. Because this because the body needs sunlight. And the smooth harmless rays of the sun is when the sun is setting. And what would give them some of that wonderful kalibo home let me know that the chemin what is the

00:46:28--> 00:46:55

one who turns them, you know someone that's bedridden, in a coma in the hospital, they turned him left and right so that developed bedsores, the nurse comes in turns a person in America Allah would turn them left and right when we can live on that le Amina that the Shema and extra security provided for them on the mouth of the game, what can go home, the simple Villa IE below See, even the dog was a security for them.

00:46:56--> 00:47:02

A lot of social even included the dog in his mercy as well, he had the same thing as having

00:47:03--> 00:47:49

for 300 plus ease. Why? Because they were able to have good fought in a lot during times of difficulty. What they did is called personal liberty letter. What you lose or you said I'm deep in the belly of the whale is called personal vanilla thinking of loss or shell. For even we understand Yanni In brief, the difficulties are a part of life. Don't ever have this kind of assumption and ID that one day everything is going to close up. Or we're going to live that final satisfaction and tranquility. And that's it. Now the time of death is going to remind you once again of the difficulty and the attitude is supposed to change. B with a lot of soldiers during these times. The

00:47:49--> 00:48:32

greatest concern and focus during times of difficulty is supposed to be a lot of social and then the promise of a lot in a manner as to the use of you'll see it in your life. You'll see it anywhere dealing with the problem and we conclude with this dealing with issues and all about Warhammer holidaysafe people are four types, concluding with this piece of information. They said number one, there is a person that is displeased with the difficulties in life. Such a person what is displeased with him. Number two, under being displeased is Hello. Number two are several other FISA vilella. And that's where he that any difficulty you face in life, you have to be patient. That's that that

00:48:32--> 00:48:41

is bottom. This is bottom line for a believer that is worship, what the server mean, server means that you say in any lab or in a garage, right?

00:48:46--> 00:48:58

in a lab or in a garage. That's the bare minimum sort of server means that you do not react in a way displeasing to Allah. So if someone was to die in the family, for example,

00:48:59--> 00:49:35

and not having some is to begin to question why him and to cry and toil and to scream and to repair and so on. That would be nice. All right. Someone went through a difficulty of financial difficulty, loses the plot on people blames this person swears here, that there is no solid right? For even solid means that you do not react in a way that is displeasing to a large social circle. Just hold yourself back and acknowledge this is from Allah. Allah net monarchial. And that's it. For you. There's a level higher than this, which is a rainbow, being pleased

00:49:36--> 00:49:42

with the difficulty what Rainbow is not worship a rainbow as

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

a sub or worship, number rainbow being pleased as a difficulty Not everyone can get that. That's a difficult level. Not everyone can get there. What does it mean to be pleased? You might say, well, how am I going to be pleased with the difficulty of life

00:50:00--> 00:50:44

Let's say it was a sickness Allah gave you How am I going to be pleased with that? Yeah, you know, for example, when someone is in pain and takes medicine, isn't he pleased with the medicine he takes. So there is this kind of ID in where you're able to be pleased with pain and difficulty being pleased that would mean that whether the difficulty happened or not, it's the same to you. That's being pleased. You see that? Yeah, for example, give an example. Daniella Savalas or to protect our children. But if a child was to die, Reba would mean that whether he's still alive or that it's the same Timmy has been pleased. Because the bottom line you know, he was from a lot to begin with la

00:50:44--> 00:50:49

social took him. Right, Heather, that you see the problems in life.

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

Them happening in your life and not happening is both the same to you.

00:50:54--> 00:51:18

There's a high level Not everyone can get that. Nobody is higher than this. You know, this higher than this. There's one more step above all of this. And this only a bad leg. Asana hinky, get it. This is how you know Sally ceram got it. We brought him on to you Sam wouldn't be some of them and the companions and everyone you know, this is how they got there. And that level above is hamdulillah. He was sure.

00:51:20--> 00:51:47

To thank Allah for Allah to be grateful to Allah for the difficulty. Yeah, any adversity you're seeing when the difficulty came? That you say and how do they learn? What gives me this test? What kind of level is this? This variable, this high level stuff? Not everyone can get their high level? This is why the first hour we read in and how long did it lead me to get to the proper hump?

00:51:48--> 00:51:56

Is that when Allah azza wa jal gives you a calamity and a difficulty in life, that not only a patient with it.

00:51:59--> 00:52:27

Not only that, and then not only you're pleased, whether it happened, it happened. It's both the same, that kind of attitude, which is high enough to say like hamdulillah for this difficulty, one of the companion one of the Sunnah for him omala once he had an injury in his finger for Jani, a friend of you saw him he said to me, there's an injury in your finger Why haven't reacted Why haven't you reacted to it yet? But he said to him,

00:52:29--> 00:52:53

now, there is an injury my finger. So he said there but imagine, it was in my face. Imagine it was in my news. Imagine it was in my I imagine it was in my he imagined it was inside of me. For the friend of us, he said for this person kept on telling me imagine imagine imagine it was he met until I thought that the most beautiful thing that has happened to this person was an injury in his finger.

00:52:54--> 00:53:15

Jani the idea of the person seeing that Jani Alhamdulillah mahabubnagar I got a gift from Allah. Can you do that with difficulties in life? To look at your difficulty and to see it hamdulillah it wasn't in this one. hamdulillah he wasn't in my Deen. But hamdulillah it wasn't in the fact that I stuck my soul out altogether to people.

00:53:21--> 00:53:22

He was out in a travel

00:53:24--> 00:54:05

and he had contracted a virus in his leg. And it was the disease was beginning to form. And the only solution back in the time was to amputate the leg. So they had to amputate a policy. There was no question in that. So they sit them we need to amputate it. Drink some alcohol so that you're intoxicated because this is how they used to what's it called the anesthetic. anesthetic back in the time was alcohol, you drink a drink until you're drunk down and then they perform whatever surgery they can perform at the time for you refuse, I'm not going to drink it. He said rather, I'm going to pray when I get into suit that amputate my leg. So he began to pray. He got into suit and they

00:54:05--> 00:54:23

amputated his leg. Of course with the difficulty. He fell unconscious for the beginning to heal the wound for him and he's still unconscious as He's unconscious. He has two sons of numerous roles. One is a companion. This is after the death of Osama assassin

00:54:24--> 00:54:40

00:54:42--> 00:54:47

it from No way. Two of the most difficult things in life had happened to him in one time.

00:54:49--> 00:54:57

So the people that were coming with that kind of yearning we've that kind of group. They arrived to where all of them are so these when they arrive

00:54:59--> 00:54:59

some of them sit

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

Should we inform him or not that he's somebody, but he just lost his leg? What are we going to inform some, some say don't don't inform him of anything. He's in a difficulty now. We'll wait for a few days, then we'll inform me and some settler, but he has to prey on his son and so very much so we have to inform him. house they agreed to inform him. So when he regained consciousness,

00:55:23--> 00:56:06

he saw his leg, he's missing a leg. And he's got one leg. They came in, they informed him and know your son had died on his way here. Horse kicked him and he died. He said she was super long to teach you the four times where he was the first thing he said. He said, Alhamdulillah Allah, you gave me two feet, two legs, you took one and he left one. And you gave me two sons. You took one and you left one fella can hamdulillah the woman applied to you belongs and hum for whatever you gave, and for whatever you took us at the time we dealt with this problem, finished humbler?

00:56:09--> 00:56:50

Look where we began. We began with the lesson of people not being able to deal with their problems, when a cause you to their problems. And look where we ended, we ended in the highest level a person can have. And that is to to observe the difficulties as a Nam in a law worth to be thanked to the point where you say it humbly left for it. Next time you read solid, solid and you read al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen yani don't just think a lot in good times. Even that's a good blessing. But the challenge for you and I used to think of lining the most difficult of times. Now that is an achievement. Now you've reached something. Now you've got to something you know you'll feel the bit

00:56:50--> 00:57:11

the sweetness of Alhamdulillah you'll feel it in those moments will love Allah we ask allows origin to give us patience to give us a liver to give us the ability to thank him during times of difficulties and hardships. We ask Allah azza wa jal to make us people of the Quran people assume that the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the body of the article called the Dalai Lama with cinema velyka Vienna Muhammad he also
