00:00:04--> 00:00:49

Bismillah Mandela he humbly lead alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah le or Sahih Germaine, all praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his seventh and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as follows my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam once again said Mr. Lee come to Lahore Bala kettle, and they were living this bliss that they have Friday. Also Paloma here and he on a Friday, we all know it is a sort of a sort of muscle Maha alayhi wa sallam that he teaches us to recite sort of gaff or any sort Palawan when a person is aware, he's conscious when he reads or they'll get up every Friday and

00:00:49--> 00:01:31

tries to relate it to events that are in his life, and events that are happening around him he finds a lot of barking. And he finds a lot of meaning in the end when you read the Quran with with the awareness of what is happening around you in current situation. So if we were to read for those who read solitaires gaff today towards the end of solitaires gabbiani. So Pamela, you read something very relevant. Alonzo hill at the end of salted gaff, he mentioned the story of musalla, whosoever will have it, you know that Masada he said, and he traveled to Alabama, and he wanted to learn a few things from him. But particularly highlighting on the first two events and what he benefits from a

00:01:31--> 00:02:17

habit. So we'll have it at the beginning. They enter and they embark upon a ship. And the ship obviously, as they're sailing in the ocean, I'll have it he goes down to the bottom deck of the ship, and he breaks a plank. And musalla he said me surprised him. What is he doing these people, the people of the ship. They took us on board for free. And yet we still have it goes down and he tears some plank from it. Yeah, this is unacceptable to musala his setup. So he denounced the action of Hubbard and he said locker g cache and in law you did something wicked, something evil. Anyway, Musa alayhis salam didn't know what was happening. And Jani so Palawan. This kind of if you were to

00:02:18--> 00:02:57

view this scene, you'd think that it's something apparently bad. This is why Musa alayhis salaam would go to condemn Moosa would condemn and how they thought they did, because apparently looks like it's something bad. Why would you destroy the ship of someone that takes us on the ship for free? You know, it was a free ride going from one part of the city to another. But eventually we realize so Pamela from the cuddle have a lot of social, something that apparently seems to be bad. Eventually, there's a lot of goodness from it. What was that goodness? uncovered. Later on? He comes in he expresses and he explains to musala his setup. And he says to him for hour to an hour, you

00:02:57--> 00:03:40

better we can have our own mini konia kukula Safi Latinos. But the idea was this on Hubbard said, I destroyed some of the ship. Now, why did he destroy some of the ship, because there was a king, there's a pirate, there's pirates on the on the ocean, there was a king that used to take every ship anything that he saw in his path, he will take it, he would seize it. So when I'll have destroyed something from the bottom of the ship, what happens is that water begins to rush into the ship. Now, when the water is rushing into the ship, it's it's threatened. Now it's almost going to sink and everyone on board is going to die. So what happens is the captain of the ship would stay would veer

00:03:40--> 00:04:22

off course. And he'll go until until he would dock at the closest Wharf. By the time they dock at the closest Wharf what happens by the time they dock at the closest Wharf, there is time to repair the ship, they take the excess water the water that has leaked in they take it out. And what happens after this, they they repair the damage in the ship, and they go back to the sea. By the time they go back to the sea. The ship the king has long gone, and the ship is saved to power law. Yani if you were to focus on this story, what Alhamdulillah did was something apparently bad, and how much good happen behind it. They ship the ship when on how they destroyed it and the water came in the ship.

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

It was it was yummy. It was threatened. everyone on board was about to sink and die and drown. But it was only after this calamity that threatened the entire lives of everyone that the ship was saved. And they knew they had the chance to go to the wharf, repair it and go back. They all had their jobs, and they had their livelihoods and their lives were saved and their ship was saved and their business was saved. For me. Upon reading sort of did you understand that you and I are living in a crisis right now. We're living in a crisis and it is threatening lives. So Pamela Nikki, we need those

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

I always have this talk called Allah. And we have to accept the other of a lot of social and a believer is always forced into thinking and taking the positive aspect of all things. It could be that the lives of so many, so many shall be threatened. In order for LA Xhosa to replace the situation with something better. When la junta Allah annum, my brothers and sisters in Islam, you and I know that this entire worldly life is an exam. And there's a beautiful example that is given. And that is that we in this world, the life are like students that are sitting an exam, like a student that's sitting an exam, when you finish the first question, and hamdulillah relief comes to

00:05:41--> 00:06:23

you, you say Finally, I finished the first question. And now you take a deep breath. And you tackle the second question. By the time you finish the second question and you're given relief, you get up once again, and you tackle the third question. And the world the life is exactly like this, we begin one calamity, and we struggle to deal with one calamity. And then once we finish this one calamity and a lot of Zoysia allows it to pass by, we once again we breathe a sigh of relief. By then we start question two of our exam and the second calamity begins it ends and the third calamity begins and so on. For my brothers and sisters in Islam. This is a fact. It's not only it's not strange to

00:06:23--> 00:07:05

the believer that calamities are ongoing and make continuous in his life. And there is no such thing as when a calamity is going to end in our lives. There's no such thing. Don't wait until calamities are finally over for you to start doing something productive in your life. You have the support of Mahatma even death death, which allows origin himself holding the planet for our saw but Kumasi Battle Mode allows origin he described death and he didn't describe anything in the plan directly as a calamity other than death, even death itself, which is the greatest calamity you and you and I will all face is put right towards the end of our life. As we depart this world, we're going to be

00:07:05--> 00:07:50

tested the biggest test that's ever passed in our life. And only then after that it becomes much more difficult for a person who didn't take advantage of his time on earth and do good and come close to a loss origin. So the idea is, don't wait for an end of to difficulties, difficulties in calamities continue in life, even the last moment when you depart this life, there is the biggest calamity as we said, and that is death itself. My brothers and sisters in Islam, let's reiterate this point and reinforce it in our in our minds that we live in a world that Allah has Zoysia himself called a dunia. adonia he didn't call me he called it a dunya. And even to the point where

00:07:50--> 00:08:39

in the Quran itself, when Allah spoke to Adam, listen to this point carefully. How did Allah describe this? dunya? How did he describe it? When a large Xhosa commanded the angels to make a search to Adam and Eve he set up, they all made the search there with the exception of the police. He refused to make a search step. So a lot of us are cursed at least from them. And he took him out from the paradise he removed him. Then a lot of social he told Adam, what happened in the Heather I do Legolas ojek, fellow Felicia nicoma immunogenetic, Photoshop, a lot of social he said to Adam and his wife what he said to them, that all Adam, this beliefs, he's an enemy to you and to your spouse

00:08:39--> 00:09:18

to your wife, her work, fellow Christian nakoma, be careful. Don't fall into these temptations. Otherwise, he will remove you out of this paradise for Tasha and what would the result be? If you were removed from the paradise? What would the result be that if you were to land on Earth, a lot of code this earth fetish or you will suffer, you will suffer because in Paradise, everything is ready for you didn't have to buy your food. You don't have to grow your food. You eat what you like, you dress what you like, and it's all out of luxury. There's no need. You do what you like. But if you come down into this worldly life, you're going to suffer greatly. Now you're going to go look for

00:09:18--> 00:09:59

your provision. Allah has already decreed it for you, but you got to go look for it. You're going to encounter trial upon trial calamity upon calamity. And so is this worldly life. Philosophy in the Quran described that as Photoshop or Photoshop, you will suffer. This is a fact. This is why in the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when he described the world the life of a believer he said, NaVi Salam or aleikum wa sallam he said at dunya CG min that this was the life is a prison for the believer. You know only now in quarantine isolation in these stay at home campaign. we're realizing what it means exactly that the dunya is a prison of the believer we're living in literal meaning of

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

this

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Now, but what it actually means is that this was the life no matter how many enjoyments the believer has, it is still considered a prison in comparison to what a law surgeon would give him of blessings and favors and mercy. And what he sees of the bliss in the paradise that allows origin will give him towards the end, when he meets Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters in Islam, we always focus on the other side as well. And that is the fact that when Allah azza wa jal described the paradise for us, he said, level down to set me in Darby him. The paradise has been described in the Quran by Allah assertion he referred to it as devil Salim a lot of social he said, Well Allahu he

00:10:48--> 00:11:40

had the rule Illa daddy Salaam, a lot of social he invited his servants to delve a cellar that was Sol m, meaning the Abode the residents the residing place of asylum. Now what exactly is a setup a lot of social unit from the names of the Paradise is dealt with seller, a seller is commonly translated as peace. And one of the names of Allah is a seller you know, seller Mohammed is one of the names of Allah. What does a seller mean? a seller means that when we're referring to a last name, it means the one who is free from all imperfections. This is what a seller means. So the paradise has been called Delta Sam. It's called Delta Sam, because it is free from all difficulties

00:11:40--> 00:12:21

and hardships. That's a life of the paradise you cannot expect this on Earth. This is called Delta Shabbat was better we live in the Paradise is called Dell system that was set up meaning the life in where it's free from all suffering, free from complications, free from trials, free from how chips free absolutely free from all this happen in the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari the Allahu anhu he narrates, he says that, in recent Allah, Allah he was sent them said, unity unity, on the day of judgment, a person who called out it will call out to the people inside the paradise, He will say to them in Allah come and

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

come over there.

00:12:26--> 00:12:37

A polar will call out and he will say, oh people of the paradise you shall reside in abide in here, and you will remain healthy and you'll never ever, ever fall ill

00:12:38--> 00:12:50

imagine the idea of knowing that you will never ever for you. And then these calls continue. Then a call up with Angel would say we're in the locker room and die Oh, fella,

00:12:52--> 00:13:02

and that you the residents, the people that are residing in the paradise, you will live and you will never ever die and die Oh, Fernando to

00:13:04--> 00:13:51

come and come and the sheep booth over there. And you will always remain young at a young age, and you will never ever become old Nana come and Dinamo Fela, Abba, and you will remain in continuous bliss, and in happiness and in blessings. And you will never ever experience misery whatsoever alone. But imagine the believer we need first hears these words, as he is in the paradise for things that are the biggest problems and sufferings in our life. And that is to fall ill and death and becoming old and always being miserable. So if this hadith mentions that these are the qualities of the people in the paradise, then no doubt these are things that will suffering this worldly life. Or

00:13:51--> 00:14:35

this is why it was known as delta shock loss or shall he tests a day of love in his life through these tests. Now my brothers and sisters in Islam, y'all need some help alone. I read something very interesting for an imam of Milkha Mahima. Hola. He has a book it's called the head in other words, elaborated in a book made of 70 chapters in where he discusses and he describes the paradise and under one law he I advise you all to sit down these days and read a book that describes the paradise Your mind will go somewhere else your spirit will be uplifted in a way that has never been amidst this calamity and this chaos and this anxiety all around us so that you can look forward to our

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

lives origin has prepared for us later. In this book Adnan Rahim Allah he discusses the matter of whether the doors of the paradise whether they close after the believers into the paradise or not, you know that when the disbelievers enters your hand and when they finally enter the fire and each and every single one of them has entered the fire, welcome our social to protect us from being of those

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

of the fire. But when they enter the fire, the door closes the door of the whole fire closes a lot Zoysia he says it now led him sada. As they enter the Hellfire, the doors of the whole fire shop closed behind them. And this is to add more fee in their house. And it is to add more and more upon the punishment upon them that the door is closed. In other words, there's no exit that's it. However, the question is, when the believers enter the paradise, do the doors closed after them or not? If not, Abraham Allah says that the doors of the paradise shall remain open forever, and they never close a lot of Zoysia he says jetnet the adenine mufa. Hatton lumen mouffetard 11, will avoid

00:15:49--> 00:16:32

that the doors of the paradise remain open forever and they never close. And why why is this the case of multi Mr. Hammer line says that is to imply for the believers in the paradise that they will live safety and security and not to worry about a thing in their life anymore. So Pamela, unlike initial the life, you know, in this life, there is no one except that he walks his dog, after he enters into your house, you lock the doors. Why obviously because this fee, that maybe someone an intruder, something on the outside somehow enters in my house, so we lock the doors. But in the paradise there's nothing defeat, there's nothing to worry about. There's no harm. So the doors of

00:16:32--> 00:17:11

the paradise removed, remain open as a symbol as a symbol for the believers to always look at the doors that are open and open because there's no harm. There is no harm that's going to ever reach us there's always safety and security in the paradise. So part a lot I tell you a lot he my brother's what is amazing is to read a description of the paradise in these these evening that maybe maybe a loss or jelly gives you satisfaction, contentment in your heart, and most definitely it will happen for the person who pondered over the earth in the Quran and Hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to describe the paradise, my brothers and sisters in Islam, and now what I wanted to share

00:17:11--> 00:17:53

with you is an area from the Quran that teaches us how do we face calamities as believers? And we're lucky I'm not just sharing this because of the Coronavirus that is happening obviously becomes more relevant nowadays. But I want this thing to always remain in your mind because as we already established with you In this lesson, that calamities are an integral part of a human beings life more so of a Muslims life. And it's done a lot of Zoysia tests a person so that he raises him ranks with him. So it is an integral part in your life. A person who thinks that he will never live calamities that's kind of silly understanding towards what life is all about. Listen to this air of

00:17:53--> 00:18:27

incredible in salt and pepper in where allows origin teaches the believer How is he supposed to face calamities? This as sort of the background I know you've probably heard it, but I want to give you some special insights in every part of this area so that we're more aware of the loss of Hannah Horta, Alice guidance and of loss origins as to us in this area law so Jenny says whether or not blue and welcome to shade in mineral hope you enjoy why not see mineral Um, well you will unfussy what thermal art was Sheila savini in

00:18:28--> 00:19:15

a large social he says in this era, what an Abu anakim and surely we are going to test you test you all the school at the end means all of you with this exception of none all will be tested. And the lab at the beginning what lemma blue and nachum alone amount referred to it as level for some meaning one law he surely you will be tested. No doubt about it. And there is an emphasis on the oath here in the end of the words that are blue and Neko that known at the end with the shirt that it carries more emphasis than the law so it is guaranteed this fact it's as though it's been said one law IE all law he you will be tested. Then a law surgeon he tells us what kind of things are we

00:19:15--> 00:20:00

going to be tested with? So he mentioned number one, he said Be sure in we are going to test you with something you see this word bishi in support of a lot Danny Shea in a 10 key will it actually be shaken means with something something minor. Gani already this word be shaped Look how powerful the words are and how one word be shaped in already comes down a believer and it comes down the believers so much because ultimately this book and for me is a book of tranquility. It is a book of peace, a lot of soil he says Allah bvk laptop manual glue. The Quran is a book of tranquility and all it takes is one word, to bring tranquility and peace upon the

00:20:00--> 00:20:45

Leave is hot. And I'm telling you this ladies B Shea B shake means something, when he will allow him or her mama they said, it is from a laws mercy, that he will test us with something small, because he wanted to pattern what Allah, he would have tested it with something huge. And how many could have been any how many could have handled that not much, probably no one could have handled that, from the mercy of Allah assertion is that he tests us with something small, no matter what the test in your life is. It is something small, keep that in your mind. It is always small compared to what a lot of soldiers could have bestowed upon you of calamities and hardships and difficulties. What an

00:20:46--> 00:21:31

ambition is something that a lot is going to test us with. He said bishi in mental health, he's going to test us with something of FY, a small part of FY, something small. In other words, a lot of soldier is going to test us in our emotions, then they'll have fi anxiety, any dependency with some people, it's mild with some people, it's severe. With some people it can reach cases in where it can reach stages in where they they actually need a mental health assessment and need to undergo some kind of psycho psychological treatment and what have you. But all of this is a test for the believer. Remember, when Anna blue or nakoma loss it is she in mental health, something of our

00:21:31--> 00:22:11

emotions are going to be tested as a large social, he says, like what people are experiencing today. People are fearing today, what do they feel they're fearing the uncertain, they fearing something that's uncertain, they fearing that their jobs might be lost, their savings might all also go down to zero. After that, how are we going to survive, they fee for their children, for the safety, they fee for the future. All of these matters that you and I as believers know nothing is guaranteed in life anyway, which is another thing that comes down the believer. But the idea is that allows origin is going to test us with some fee. And a person always he feeds the future. Always the future is

00:22:11--> 00:22:52

what a person always feeds. This is why it was the first thing mentioned in the air. Because it's something that continuous often always happens every day, you might see something every day you might see another or two. So one of the blue and the condition in mental health, when you're and we're going to test you with something of hunger. Now, what's assumed in the A and what is meant by the a is well in a blue and not condition in mental health, watch a minute, sure, we're going to test you with something of feet, and something of hunger, something of hunger, and you know, somehow a lot of people artists that in hunger people, artists that with hunger and hunger, you know, it has

00:22:52--> 00:23:33

it has reasons, for one reason is limited food supply. For example, when food becomes limited, people begin to see hunger. They're not hungry yet, but they begin to see hunger when when food supply becomes limited. Another way is a person's income can become really, really low. Now he's on a restricted budget. So he cannot buy what he used to buy before. And now as a result, he's going to go through some hunger to make it through the week by the time he gets his next weekly pay, and so on. So that is experiencing hunger. And people today now are going to experience this and have already experienced it. People that have a job. And they used to live week to week on what they

00:23:33--> 00:23:59

earn, when they've lost their money. When they've lost their income. What happens now, they need to now live week by week, so they can't eat, they cannot afford to buy what they used to buy of luxuries and of foods in the past. For so Palomar they'll have to reduce that. And as a result, they are being tested with something of hunger with something of hunger problem. And there are many reasons for hunger, for example, there are metabolic

00:24:00--> 00:24:03

disorders, such as

00:24:04--> 00:24:43

leptin, a certain person can be lifted, resistant, you know, and such a disorder means when the body doesn't release energy to be both supposed to eat and eat and eat and eat and he gets fat and he gets bigger and bigger and bigger and he's still hungry, he still feels hungry. And this is also a test for people that go through leptin resistance, you know, this is a test. This is how a person can be you're eating and you're still hungry. These are forms of tests in how allow social tests a person through hunger when no blood, no condition in mental health when you are. The third thing that Allah mentions is we're not submitted when and we're going to test you with something of loss

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

of wealth. And that means that could be either your money is stolen, your money disappears, your job is lost. So now what happens, your money is decreased. Your investment could go down. It's not making your business can't make any more profit.

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

All of this is allows origin testing from someone through Noxon minute unwell. And then he said, Well, I'm fuzzy with them a lot. And the fourth test, we're going to test you by a loss of lives, as well. loss of lives, loss of close family members, loss of loved ones, loss of people that are close to you in the community, most often rural America, this is a big Muslim and Islam as well. Where did that go? Knowledge goes as well, a lot of social, he said. And finally, the fifth test that is mentioned in this area was thermal art. And we're also going to test you with something remember, everything is always small loss or jelly tests us with something minimum, something that we're able

00:25:41--> 00:26:28

to bear and cope with what some art and a loss of provision, loss of provision, then in rural America Hey, Mama lovely said it's, it's when a person has a healthy farmland, and it's producing 100% produce maybe 80% 90% produce and all of a sudden, from among 200 from among 200 orange trees, all of a sudden, only one orange tree is producing fruit. So this allows origin is testing the owner of that farm, for example, bishi in Minnesota, about a loss in provision, you know, and this is something that we did experience in Australia and when the drought or when the drought season came in all around the world, people experienced this. Maybe a drought season can come in where now this

00:26:28--> 00:27:12

new normal water and so the land can't be irrigated anymore. The farmland can be irrigated. As a result the crops night nothing is producing people are out of business, and so on. Also, a plague can occur and happen on a farm. Lucas infested frogs can come insects can come in all of this and really melt him Allah mentioned in terms of the meaning of what what's the minimum value and emphasis was similar to a lot of dentists, the people in in a loss of provision. Now, let's find our comfort units of how to lock in the hall. And let's answer this my brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah azza wa jal now, he began these ads by saying to us what he's going to test us with, he's

00:27:12--> 00:28:03

going to test us with something of fi as your hunger not similar and when something of loss of wealth, a thermal or a nocturnal amphis, loss of lives with camarat and loss of provision. Our lucky my brothers and sisters in Islam, I tell you this, just going through one of these five is Yanni just going through one, obviously one of them going through one will make life so difficult and worrying for that person. Think imagine when you're hit with all five and whatnot one time, and this so Pamela is exactly what we're experiencing today. We're going through all these five at one time. All these five at one time, we are experiencing fi many people experiencing fi I mean, Yanni, it was

00:28:03--> 00:28:48

reported in the news that the the helplines have received seven times more calls than the previous weeks, when this virus in this calamity didn't occur. So we're being tested with fee hope, what is your end hunger knocks him in and when most of our people have lost their jobs in the millions? When unforced people are losing lives, we're losing loved ones, with them a lot. And provision is going as well, we're losing some of that as well. So just being being tested with one of them is so difficult. Imagine them being tested with all five, no doubt we have to go back to the plan to find how Allah guides us through the situation. Because ultimately it was allows origin who tested that

00:28:48--> 00:29:03

wisdom with them. So the answers and the guidance are only going to be in the hands of the one who tested us, which is Allah subhanho wa Taala. Jani she in mental health, you know, so Pamela,

00:29:05--> 00:29:47

we're going to be tested Wi Fi. It's okay. It's alright. It's fine to fi Milan, he said he's going to test those Wi Fi, you know, contrary to people that come out and say why you're fearing and don't feel a lot of said he's going to test us with me. So it's fine. If there's a person sitting and he's fearing something and he's worrying that it's fine. It's not a sign of leukemia. It's not a sign of that a person is instanceid it's not a sign of historically the law is reduced or it's down when we lead don't even let anyone make you think like that. A lot of social in the IoT said you'll notice this Wi Fi. So it's absolutely fine for a strong believing men and women to feel that experience,

00:29:48--> 00:29:58

anxiety and some fee and it could be very severe and very mild. You know, like if you even reflect over the case of yaku Bala who said, You know jacoba is Sarah

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

He was so worried about the uncertainty of his child's use of when he lost his child, Yusuf Alayhi. Salam to the point where, where he cried so much that he became blind, he became blind.

00:30:14--> 00:30:49

And all of this was a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it's fine to feel some kind of worry, because of the uncertainty like Yakov Allah, you said, I felt some worry for the uncertainty of his some use of because he knew his his children were lying. He knew they didn't put him in that the the the fox or the wolf came in at him. He knows that that was a fabricated story. He said, Ben, so what a typical month for Sukkot Mama, you're just making up a story. So now he was absolutely worried. Where is my son? Wait, did he go to the point where he's is he became blind or built, but I never met

00:30:50--> 00:31:05

him. So it's fine to have these feet in them. And my brothers and sisters in Islam, what is not fine. What is a problem is that you make this fee, take the better part of your life. That's the problem.

00:31:06--> 00:31:50

You allow the fee to take so much in every part of your life to the point where you begin to lose hope in the last version. That's where the problem is. You can see there's no problems. But to make it take the better part of your life, to the point where you begin to lose hope and alone. And you lose your certainty and a lot altogether. And you begin to question a lot zosia and you stop you're solid. And you doubt laws help. And he's mercy. That's not that's that is not okay. To allow your feet to reach that state. That is not okay. This is why we need to be careful. We need to control our feet. And the last version, he guides us on a proper way of doing that. Remember, the most

00:31:50--> 00:32:30

greatest thing you have in your life is certainty and the last option, and you cannot allow the calamities including fee and anxiety to override your certainty and a loss aversion and your hope in his mercy and forgiveness. And the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam. When he described to us the blessings, he said the greatest blessing a person is ever ever given is le Aquino Villa he subhanho wa Taala you know that, you know that the greatest blessing a person has ever been given from molars origin is that we remain certain and firm in our belief in a muscle panel.

00:32:31--> 00:33:16

And that includes certainty in your belief in all of his names, and that he is capable over all things at any time. He does what he wants Allahu Akbar. This is what we're not allowed. We cannot allow calamities, including fee to result in the fact that we lose certainty and Allah Subhana Allah and belief in Allah azza wa jal and lose our Deen altogether. And you know, what's also interesting is that, a lot of Zoysia in this, he said one and a blue one Nakhon we're going to test you. The point is, why did Allah inform us? He's going to test us with these five minutes Why? Why did he inform us? You see a lot of soil informed us so that we may be prepared a lot like well, so that

00:33:16--> 00:34:04

when we are afflicted by these calamities, we are not as shocked as a person that was never informed. Can you look at the mercy of Mr. Zoysia? I tell you the polarities, a book of guidance, allows origin told us, I will test you with fee and poverty, a loss of wealth, a loss of health and then lives a loss of provision. Why did he inform us of this thing, so that we can be prepared, buckle up in this life and be prepared for the tests of a loss to come. And when you're prepared, you can tackle and relate and real you can you can face these calamities in a much easier way than if you were not prepared yet. Now give you an example. You know, ambulance officers around the

00:34:04--> 00:34:53

world, medical professionals, doctors and so on. They are all trained. They are all trained, right? professionally trained. So they if they were to ever enter a scene where there's blood on the floor, a person is stabbed, different injuries, someone's hand this it's come out of its place, the bone is out the blood is coming up to a medical professional. He is not as confronted by this site. As if someone that is untrained comes in and sees that for the very first time. Right? He's more shocked. What I'm seeing is when a loss origin informs us that I am going to test you with these matters that you and I are experiencing today. Today. Don't be too shocked, because we already know. So we're

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

supposed to already be prepared for these events. I believe that he's always prepared for it whatever because Allah azza wa jal has already been

00:35:00--> 00:35:24

Foreigners, that it is coming. So you're shocked. You're afraid you're free. It's okay. But not to the point where you lose your certainty in the law. So just because there's a believer we're already prepared. Okay, so the question is continuing these AI. How do we face these calamities that allow absorption promise that he will test us with? How do we face these calamities? alarm? Zoysia now he's going to mention what is worship?

00:35:26--> 00:35:46

How the hell are we going to face these calamities alarm? Social is going to now mention the worship way, something that you and I cannot run away from. If we do not want to if we do not do what the Lord tells us now that we are sinful, how do we face them bare minimum worship allows origin he says what a sheet is solid him

00:35:47--> 00:36:29

and congratulate the patient, give good news to the patient. In other words, when Allah says wabasha sabihin. He's teaching us that the worship and the most correct way to face calamities in life, especially those five that were mentioned in the area, which are basically a summary of all the calamities in life. The worship upon a believer in the face of these calamities, minimum is to the patient of soybean, Allah azza wa jal, he says, authority and worship and and somehow the law says and he gave good news, he said, congratulate anyone who remained patient congratulate him. congratulate him for what exactly what does a lot of soldiers give him obviously a mini Athan in the

00:36:29--> 00:37:11

mid Summa tannery salam, Aleikum alayhi wa sallam, it's mentioned the huge reward for those who are patient, the levels and the ranks the reach with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those who attained the level of patience, enter the paradise behind it. He said, into my office saw Luna Zhang vileda, he said, without being held accountable, these are from the many rewards that muscle loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in the light clarifies in the form of a sheet of slavery. Now we need to understand this, a lot of social and he says, well, the sheet of slavery and what is patience? So we're now saying to people be patient, okay. The question is, what is patient? How do I exercise

00:37:11--> 00:38:00

patience? Well, let's understand this linguistically. Patience is an helps it means to hold oneself back to literally cage yourself. But hold yourself back for more patience means that you hold yourself back from evil words, from words that are displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that you hold yourself back from actions that are displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is what patience is. So you don't see words that are displeasing to Allah, like people like ignorant people go around, swearing at the situation, f this, NF that. And why did this happen in our lives? And why did we do what did we do to deserve and It's all his fault. And it's all these people's fault that

00:38:00--> 00:38:45

came from there, and it's his fault. These are all words that are displeasing to Allah. And if you utter these words, you're not from among the patient, you're sinful, because we said the minimum form of reaction that is worship in the face of calamities is to the patient. So patience means that you do not utter words that are displeasing to Allah and you do not do anything that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala and there is a lot of other you know, send them he says, they said in that mumble Robin Hood worship culture you Yani, a person is not, not from us, meaning is not from the actions of Islam, those who bought Robin Hood, those who, who slap themselves right, when a calamity

00:38:45--> 00:39:32

happens, and those who tear their clothes up. In other words, they act in an evil way, they act in a displeasing way to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, what is patience, if we just identified what number five is patience, what is patience, on the other hand, and let a law surgeon himself define what patience is to us. Allah says in his Blissett book after this, he says and Lavina either also but to masiva. Those who whenever they are struck by a calamity, and I want you to focus on something here, the word a lot used for calamity. He said anyone who is afflicted by a calamity, he called it mostly but what is the most lever? What a beautiful word, and we'll see what comes from the word of saw

00:39:32--> 00:39:47

bad. And also that literally means to hit the target. You know, when a person has a bow and arrow, you have a bow and an arrow, and you have right towards the end in your sight. You have a target. Once you

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

retract the arrow back, and you release the arrow from the bow, and it flies all the way and it hits what you want. We say in Arabic

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

But

00:40:01--> 00:40:14

he hit the target. And you know when you do that, aren't you aiming for it? Are you intending to hit something specific? Allah azzawajal called calamities most liba. Why?

00:40:15--> 00:41:03

Because they are absolutely intended for whoever it gets. It's not random events that are happening in the world. It's not random events. Alonso agenda has precisely targeted the entire globe. Now with this kind of calamity. And then on a on a personal level, allows origin, he targets certain people with different calamities. So if you're experiencing something, then you better surely know it is called the most lever. It was called the most evil because Allah intended you and no one else lovelock's power, the law, Allah intended you and no one else, and you know what this should create in us. It could create an awareness that allows us to lose who I am. And he knows exactly what he

00:41:03--> 00:41:53

has sent upon me. It didn't go to my wife, he didn't test my child with this. He didn't test my brother, he didn't test my father. It actually it came to me because Allah intended me in this calamity that has come down upon me. You look how many areas and words upon words in this small part in this the short air, how many words bring tranquility and peace upon the life upon the heart of the believer? So what is sort of Allah azza wa jal now is telling us patience is, whenever a person is intended by a calamity from a loss, or shall he's hit with a calamity or Lwe first thing, the way they react is by words. Or do you look how, how easy Allah has made the joke, we are supposed to

00:41:53--> 00:42:40

respond by words. Our words need to be straight as well. Because if our words are correct and pleasing to Allah, our actions become pleasing to Allah so agenda as well. How does a believer react callooh the same and Apollo here means as soon as the calamity hits the sea, not wait until the calamity is gone. By then anyone can be patient, when the missile alarm or they even send them in a submarine, the submarine ooda that patience that a person is rewarded for his patience that is exercised at the beginning of the calamity, not at the end, because at the end, everyone can do it at the beginning. What do they say? This is a loss of this is a loss explanation of what patience

00:42:40--> 00:42:54

is, you say? You get these words a lot. But what beautiful words this marvelous sort of loss of aloha alayhis salaam has been given one law he these words are medicine, and I'm about to tell you why the medicine

00:42:55--> 00:42:57

they say in

00:42:58--> 00:43:47

what in LA, he was your own. A lot of Zoysia told us about five calamities at the beginning of this passage. And he told us five words to see in lilla each one's much more powerful than the other. We're in La Jolla Giroux, it's made up of two parts. In LA, we all belong to a law. That's what we're supposed to say. What does that mean, we all belong to a law, meaning sit down, relax, you belong to a law. And as an extension, that means that all your affairs belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala also only makes sense like that, if you you, your body, flesh and skin belong to a lot, meaning all your affairs and everything that happens in your day and in your night also belongs to a

00:43:47--> 00:44:08

lot. So to begin with, you didn't even own anything. And if Allah owns at all, meaning, he's in control of everything he's in control of at all. So if you want your situation to change to the better, the only sensible and reasonable thing to do is to reach out to the one who controls it all, which is so bad.

00:44:11--> 00:44:14

In any lab, we all belong to Allah Subhana. who,

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

you know,

00:44:17--> 00:44:58

know about him, Allah, he said, think of it like this. And this is like, it was narrated that one of the wives of a companion, one of the wife of the Companion of the law, I forgot now who, but they had a child between each other, they had a child, the child died. And the wife knew about the death of the child. And her husband hadn't known yet that his son had died. So she went to her husband and she wants to break the news to him. She doesn't want to come like, you know, like a shocking news all in his face straightaway. She wants to prepare the news for him so it can be easier for him to digest. So she said to my husband, I forgot his name, but she said

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

if

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

If we own something was sorry, she said to him, if someone owns something, if someone owns something

00:45:08--> 00:45:56

and we borrowed it from him, we borrowed it. And he came the next day and requested his property back. He came in and he said, Give me my property back. Would you be upset? He said, No, why should I be upset? I don't even own it. It's not mine. She said to him, then and humbling there are a lot of stores and has taken what belongs to him. And what a beautiful introduction it was, and how soothing and calming was to him. And what she said basically, is a sama summarized it into two words in any layer. So anything that happens, It all belongs to Allah anyway. What room Do we have to complain about something that allows or shadows in any layer, and then the second part is to see

00:45:56--> 00:46:45

what in LA yo is your own? And to him subhanho wa Taala we will return Why do we say this part what in LA he allows you to him We shall return? Why do we say this part? A little amount by him? Oh, lovely. See, this is this is medicine for the service. The next part we're in the legalize your own, and to Him we shall return his medicine. Why? What does it mean? It means and we shall return back to him so that we may meet and see the reward and the result of our patients. This is when we look forward to going back to a loss or those who truly exercised and practice patients are happy when they say we're in the LA you're here. We are going to return and we're waiting for that thing to

00:46:45--> 00:47:21

return. Because when we return it's only then that we are going to see the reward. We're going to see the reward of our patients. And what Alonzo has made of us I have made has made for us of abode and residents in the paradise a lot of luck about so Pamela my brothers and sisters in Islam in their early left in illegals your own one law he medicine to the hot side of injury. Listen to this. Sorry Devon, Jubail bajo la from among the Debbie and Debbie Reno, those who came after the companions.

00:47:22--> 00:47:48

He said these words these five words in any level are innately yours your own. Were not given to any profit. Besides the food and loss. A lot of you are sending nude profit before us all of us. Allahu alayhi wa sallam knew these words. And had they known them. Then the aku ballet is Sam. When he lost his son useful.

00:47:49--> 00:48:06

He would have he wouldn't have said, Yeah, SFL la. La What? Well, you know, when yaku lost his son useful. The first words he said was Yes, Allah Yusuf, he said, How great is my grief and sorrow and sadness for yourself?

00:48:07--> 00:48:51

had he known in any length, you were in a garage, he would have said it. But these words were special. They were only given to us all the loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and they were only given to this woman. And my brothers and sisters in Islam wall law here we have medicine, in this plant in this blessing. We have medicine in this plan, the whatever I shared with you nothing a few words a few out already, and I just does I repeat these to myself, I can already feel a sense of tranquility, and a sense of peace that only allows or he gives to whomever he wants from his event. However, open your eyes and open your hearts and accept the last words with sincerity, in a time of

00:48:51--> 00:49:34

calamity where we're supposed to read the last word, so that we find guidance, we find people reading conspiracy theories, and conspiracy theories. What do they do other than adding anxiety and stress and pressure and strain the minds and the hearts and the souls of every living being? Allahu Akbar, people are resorting to conspiracy theories to find out the truth behind all these matters. Why bad law he saw the him the true righteous leaves of Allah are resorting to the Koran to find the truth and the bottom behind everything that a law of assertion decrees and permits to happen on this earth. Allahu Akbar, in LA he was in LA urology,

00:49:35--> 00:49:47

a lot of sushi and then he mentioned to us something of the reward of what he gives these people if they were to exercise patience, or why does a lot tell us the reward? You know the AI with a gallium solo atom no problem

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

at all on why does it not tell us what is the reward of patience? Why? You know why? so that we may exercise patience for the sake of meeting this reward.

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

For the sake of Allah, but what is going to encourage us and motivate us to practice proper, proper patience is the reward that a lot of social mentions because when you and I know the reward of something, we actively work towards it. You know, like, for example, you know, when we're little children, if your parents said, Go cut the grass, I'll give you $100 or whatever, when you know what the prize is, you rush to cut the grass even though it's not something you love. So when we know the reward of the patient, we will rush to being patient, even if it's going to be something difficult upon the knifes allow, so shall he says that the reward is when a guarding him follow him, for

00:50:44--> 00:51:33

people that practice patience, in the time and in the face of calamity. And that is by saying in a lab, or in a garage your own and accepting its meaning and acknowledging it. And refraining from evil speech and evil actions. Such people are so shall he says, I lay him follow Him, upon them are going to be the silhouette of the Lord Allah azza wa jal is going to make mention of them and praise them among the high ranking angels. That's what the prayers of Allah upon his servant mean, Allah is going to make mention of them. Among the high ranking angels, what does that mean? What does it mean that Allah is going to make mention of believers by their name, among the high level ranking angels,

00:51:33--> 00:51:45

they are give you an example just so you can understand how awesome of an honor this is for the believer. You know, so proud a lot, honey, if you you, you were sitting in a gathering, let's say you're sitting in a gathering

00:51:47--> 00:51:55

of 100 people, let's see. And someone comes in and just calls out your name. And he says, brother, hammered.

00:51:56--> 00:51:57

Brother I met.

00:51:59--> 00:52:42

Someone was just in your mentioned now, and he was speaking highly about you. And he was praising you. Imagine this being told to you as you're sitting in a gathering of 100 people, how happy Do you feel on the inside? Imagine that person or someone famous, someone that really had any credibility in his life? And he's looked up to as a role model and so on. How happy Do you get like, it's in your mind? You're saying, like someone mentioned me a lot, but imagine me, imagine now when you know that Allah is talking about you? How much happiness does that charge in the heart? How much honor does that give the believing servants of Allah so it's good to know that alarm. So jelly is talking

00:52:42--> 00:52:54

about us right now, among the high level ranking angels. But that is once again only given to someone who properly and correctly exercised a sort of patience a lot about what a blessing

00:52:56--> 00:53:09

to narrow beam. So every time you practice patience, think, close your eyes and think that if I was to be patient all along during this calamity, no matter what it is, a lot is going to make mention of my name.

00:53:11--> 00:54:01

But he's going to make mention of my name because of the actions I'm doing for his sake. So part of what I did among the elite and the high ranking angels with a colleague in Palo Alto, de Marana and such people allow so shall will bestow upon them black man mercy. What does mercy mean? And love they said otherwise. He akech full court of law being granted or Emma from Allah, when observing patience after a calamity, meaning that soon Allah azzawajal will uncover the hardship will remove the adversity will remove this difficulty and calamity, this is what that means, this is because this is almost mercy, that when a server is is under extreme hardship and pressure, a loss upon him

00:54:01--> 00:54:47

would mean that he will remove this calamity for the evening there have high hopes in a loss or shall be positive, that whatever loss origin tests a servant with so long has he practices patience, the law of a law upon him and a sign of Allah upon him is that a lot of Xhosa will remove this difficulty away from him very soon, what will their government do? And this is the third prize and such people are doing such people are the guided are the rightly guided. What will then come with a large ocean gives them guidance so that every word they speak they are guided by a large ocean and everything they see they're guided by a law and everything they hear they are guided by a law and

00:54:47--> 00:55:00

whatever they feed their minds is guided by a law. Reading conspiracy theories is not being guided by a margarita. It's being guided by the shape on to distract you from what's more important. We

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

Have Chabad we have Ramadan ahead of us. And people still find the time to be distracted by all these events by resorting to things that have no substance that have no basis to them that are actually fabrications and lies. Part of the drama of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is to say loneliness and or even fear, I ask you for beneficial knowledge. And you're supposed to see this in the morning after selecting Fisher. Yeah, it's part of the morning, Vicar. How How does it make sense that you're asking a law or law provide me beneficial knowledge today. And then the first thing you're reading as conspiracy theories, but that's not even mutual knowledge. That's poisonous

00:55:41--> 00:56:16

knowledge, harmful knowledge. It's as poisonous to the spiritual and intellectual journey, the spiritual being and in the intellect of a person. As much as it's poisonous as a virus to the physical body. We need to understand what will they do Allah guides them? And why did the law refer to these people as being guided? Because they were able to respond to the calamity in a pleasing way. So a lot of Zoysia said, What would he do, and my brothers and sisters in Islam? Let's understand this, that

00:56:17--> 00:57:04

what I just shared with you, is the minimum form of how a believer is supposed to face calamities, and that is that he must have patience and we explained what patience is and what the reward to follow with that is. But then, an animal or human will discuss that. There are four types of people when it comes to calamities, four types of people. Number one, a person can respond to a calamity, by being displeased. And that is how long in Islam whoever is displeased with the color of Allah assertion, whoever is displeased with whatever Allah Zoysia targets him with of calamity, then such a person a lot is displeased with him, as in the hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:57:04--> 00:57:38

Omen sociopathically he saw, whoever is displeased, a lot is displeased with it. That's how second type of people in the face of adversity and calamities are patients or people that are patient. And this is a worship upon the believer. And we said patience means to refrain from evil words and evil actions, rather to see in Nellie lair, who are in the La Jolla room and behave in a manner that is displeased is pleasing to Allah social. And this is where she yummy. Each and every single believer needs to be in this state, at least sober.

00:57:40--> 00:58:11

The third type of how people face calamities, and this is going to be higher than support. And that is a rainbow other muscle being pleased with calamities whenever Allah discussed, that being pleased with calamities is not a worship, rather, it's nice to have. It's like, I had no clue about him online. He describes this. And what he discusses also, what's the difference between being pleased a robot and being patient.

00:58:12--> 00:58:28

Because you know, you can be patient. But in your mind, you just don't like what's happening, right? You don't like this hardship, you don't like it, that's normal. But you know, hamdulillah will be patient in that allow a melee hero hero. And I wouldn't say more than that.

00:58:29--> 00:58:37

a step further is to be pleased. What's the difference between being pleased and patient in the face of calamity is the difference in the last set.

00:58:39--> 00:58:50

That whether the matter befalls you whether the calamity befalls you or not, that you respond and have the same feeling towards both Ghana, I'll give you an example. Let's say that somehow

00:58:52--> 00:58:53

a person loses his job.

00:58:54--> 00:59:01

Now to be patient, is to say in that level, in the lawyers your own, and unlike your suffering on the inside.

00:59:03--> 00:59:45

A robot being pleased is to say whether I had the job or not, it's all the same to me. That's a river. That is a robot that's being pleased and ultimately contend with the calamity that a lot of distortion befalls and puts upon you. That's arguable whether it happened or it didn't. I react in the same manner. And I'm all feeling the same. And me Salahi my brothers and sisters in Islam. Talk is easy. But it takes a lot of work internally. And it takes a lot of work internally to reach this level. And this level can only be reached when a person truly knows who allows origin is. Well luckily A lot of us suffers. A lot of us suffer and cannot reach this level of limbo because we

00:59:45--> 00:59:59

don't know who he is. We don't know who he is. So we just feel like a lot of zosia is treating us like how other people treat us. And so the lack of knowledge we have of a loss aversion makes life a very, very difficult path to travel.

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

And the more and more and more a person has knowledge of a lighter soil the much easier and easier he can deal with calamities in life. That's just how it works. And this is something that I can explain in a lesson. This is something that you have to get up and make effort to learn about Allah, his name is and I have a message on YouTube, titled who is allowed to go and listen to it. It's a hope I gave, I discussed in that hopper. What prophets did what extent they went to learn something about Allah Subhana Allah, and when you know who Allah social is you're able to leave to reach the level of a liberal with a level of a liberal means whether the calamity falls, and it happens to you

01:00:42--> 01:01:25

or whether it doesn't, it's all of a sudden, and higher than this. And this is the highest alert, but you might say, is there anything higher than that? There's one more higher, the absolute highest level, and this is the first type of person people that face a calamity. And that is humbler here Alan Burnett, Allahu Akbar. And that is to thank a love and be grateful to Allah for the calamity. And the first is a person that is displeased with the calamity, or the harm in Islam. Second to be patient, that's Where's your third to be pleased with the calamity happened or it didn't happen? It's all the same. Anyway. Fourth, and this is the highest level is to as soon as the calamity hits

01:01:25--> 01:02:11

to say Alhamdulillah. To thank alarm, social for the calamity. humbler Bella can In other words, you see the calamity as a NEMA from Allah Zoysia and you you no longer see it as a difficulty. This is a huge level of my brothers and sisters in Islam, and every single day and so that is how we read Alhamdulillah or bill Allah need. We say Alhamdulillah but have you ever thought of what Alhamdulillah is? And hamdulillah is to thank Allah azza wa jal on no matter what happens in your life, and the greatest calamities that happened in your life, to say it humbly LED, this is an AMA This is an opportunity for me how many during this coronavirus crisis. From this fourth type of

01:02:11--> 01:02:51

person how many of us are this type that sit down no matter what the situation no matter what it was afflicted and said you know what Alhamdulillah This is truly a blessing from Allah. This this Coronavirus as Allah Xhosa described it upon the believers being a rock man, and then recognize the opportunities and the positivity that came behind it. Now he's closer to his family above it before he's able to read the Bible and be serious. He has cried over his sins, he has come back to a loss or agenda. He has made the tober such people or people that have shown gratitude to allows origin during this time of calamity. You know, so ally mentioned their story of of one of the seller or one

01:02:51--> 01:02:57

of the seller for him a home alone. He got injured in his finger, you know, a little injury in his finger.

01:02:58--> 01:03:11

So someone saw him and he said to him, nearly lump AutoCAD damages or damages along the lines. He said to him, why don't I see you reacting

01:03:12--> 01:03:58

and showing sadness for this injury that has happened in your finger? how can how can you look like nothing happened? So he said the in the store that has the injury in his finger. He said to him? Well, imagine this injury was on my face. Imagine it was in my I imagine it was in my nose. Imagine it was in my mouth, in my tongue in my ears inside of me. And this person, he said, and I kept I kept hearing from this and him saying imagine imagining audiophiles. Now what if it was from here? What if it was this? Until I realized that the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to him? was a small or was an injury in his finger? That he can you do that? Can you do that? That whatever

01:03:58--> 01:04:35

happens that you sit down, and you can thank Allah Zoysia for so many things that he avoided from you that if they had happened, they would have caused much more calamity and chaos in your life. This is a high level to reach humble Lord, you know what I like to say humbly learn it, mostly because in my Dean, you know, that would have been a big calamity. At the trial, when the calamity been in our DNA would have been big. And hamdulillah. It wasn't in my in my world. It wasn't in my family journey for those that didn't experience it in those doors. And for everyone, it's a different experience. But for everyone, there's so many things to thank a lot of social for that

01:04:35--> 01:05:00

this is the highest level of dealing with a calamity. And that is to take that as an opportunity to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala from the goodness that you can see in it. And even in the case of openness of a loved one, you know, what moves away from among the Sahaba all the love I know, one day he contracted a disease in his leg and it was fast spreading. It was known at the time and whoever was affected

01:05:00--> 01:05:38

By that kind of disease, the only cure then was to amputate the link or to amputate that limb so that it doesn't spread across the body. So the 16 year old while we were supposed to amputate your leg, so we're going to do it as soon as possible. Let us do it now. So they said they offered him alcohol because this is the anesthetic of the of those times they used to drink alcohol drunk out and then they used to do their surgeries. So he refused. He said, Oh, no drink alcohol. Let me pray to look at and when I'm in my suit, come and amputate my leg, a lot of luck. And other lawyers in those that are connected with a law, always think of a spiritual way to come out of a situation and

01:05:38--> 01:06:25

put themselves in a much better situation. So he said, Let me pray to God for a law and in my suit, he would come and amputate my leg. So he prayed, he went into suit and they came in they amputated his leg and he fell unconscious, obviously, because of the pain. So they stayed with him. And on the way, on the way, and a group, a group was coming of the believers was coming to where all the companions are. And in this group that is coming, there's two sons of overall the Allahu anhu. They're both on the horses and they're coming towards where they daddy's. And as they're coming, one of the horses trips, and all of a sudden falls off. And somehow by the color of a law, the horse

01:06:26--> 01:07:07

kicks. This boy, the son of Allah causes him a lot of injuries in were they result in the death of his son a lot, but I can imagine the calamities on over he just lost his leg. He lost his son and he still doesn't know yet. So when this group finally arrived, they said all we should inform all that his son had died as well. So some of them said, No, no, no, no, no, don't inform him. He just lost his leg. Now when I know too much for him today relax, will inform him later. The other said how what do you mean inform him later, we need to inform him now. Because it's his son. Maybe he wants to wash his body. He wants to prey upon him. He wants to make that for him. So we can't hide this

01:07:07--> 01:07:08

information from him.

01:07:09--> 01:07:22

So So what happened is they agreed, okay, we'll tell him. So they came to all of the alarm. I imagine Heather from the companions listen and learn from how a companion used to respond to calamities. They said to me, our

01:07:23--> 01:07:33

your son died on the way here for whatever your loved one who he can just imagine this challenging, difficult moment in his life. He said to them

01:07:34--> 01:08:20

Alhamdulillah, Allah Callahan operates belongs to a law for whichever situation we're always in. A lung gave me two legs. He took one. And he left me with one. And Allah has given me two children. He took one, and he left me with one 111 Allahu Akbar. And he saw the difficulty as an opportunity to thank allows origin for a blessing. Yes. Who can reach such a state? This is the challenge for you. And it this is the challenge for you and I are lucky if we're able to do that. One more he The next day, how are we going to read? We're truly going to feel the sweetness of the words, and how would you let your beloved I mean, we're going to feel the sweetness of these words. These are different

01:08:20--> 01:08:58

types of people and how they relate and only face these calamities. This is what I wanted to share with you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, Jazakallah lo halen for hearing. And let's just remind ourselves at the end of this live feed, I asked him to reward you all for having the patience with me. In listening to this talk, that I shared with you a few hours from the call, and we ask a lot of Xhosa that he revives our hearts with the plan. We ask him that he accepts from us everything that we said for his sake alone. And that and that this talk becomes a reason for why we draw closer and closer to the last question but don't forget my brothers and sisters in Islam, that we are on the

01:08:58--> 01:09:35

doors of Omar. And don't just wait for him alone because we're still in a Blissett month of Shabbat make the advantage and take the most of Chabad soon it is going to be the 15th day of Shabbat in when the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam said when it is the 15th of Chabad you're falling in love on me. Okay, that allows so shall he oversees he overlooks all of his servants, and he can see them every second and every day of their lives. subhanho wa Taala but on the 15th of shabam Chabad. A lot of soldiers he sees the soul. He sees the hearts and he said for Allahu

01:09:36--> 01:09:51

Allah azza wa jal forgives all the servants except for two types of people, the machinic for a publicist for a mushnik why he's not forgiven because obviously he needs to hate. You need to declare the oneness of Allah before being forgiven for your sins

01:09:52--> 01:09:59

overshare him or two people that are charged up against each other, that this animosity and hatred against each other

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

These two people, a lot of social does not forgive them on the 15th of Chabad. My brothers and sisters in Islam, be careful that

01:10:09--> 01:10:40

make sure you enter Ramadan and Allah has forgiven you. For if you have been forgiven and you've entered Ramadan, you enter it with a clean heart, you're able to make the most of it. And the forgiveness is going to happen on the 15th of shodhan. But that is only for a true believing woman in Allah subhanaw taala. And for a person that carries no ill feelings, hatred and grudge against people and more so doesn't harbor these feelings of hatred and animosity, and jealousy and anger against unruly

01:10:42--> 01:11:24

students of knowledge, the people that are teaching, you know, how often we display we we disregard the side of things, and we think that the Hadid is only speak about me and hating my, my some business partner or another brother in Islam. The greatest form of hate is to hate people of knowledge, and to hate the machine and to hate the schools of Islam. And how how much has this become a trend around the world? Whenever it shows us something that I don't agree with? We hate him nonetheless, just hate on him and share these negative comments, and and so on and so on. This is a mutia him, someone that hold something against someone including people of Islam. These people, they

01:11:24--> 01:12:08

are not forgiven for their sins they entered them are born with a disease to your heart. How do they benefit from them to cleanse the hearts my brothers and sisters in Islam? And one final advice please my brothers and sisters please please. Every single he the Shea upon finds a way to distract us from Ramadan, and from what's important in our life every you notice that? Do your own backtrack and see last from Oban just as we came close to them about what was the biggest thing on everyone's mind? What distracted them from Ramadan. And so the same thing is happening today. Coronavirus. Yes, it's something serious, take precautionary measures it measures stay at home, that's a better listen

01:12:08--> 01:12:47

to the advice. That's all good too often, you should be doing that as a Muslim anyway. But what I'm trying to say is don't give it so much of your time, to the point where you begin to search and read about silly things, such as the conspiracy theories that I mentioned to you. These conspiracy theories are from the sheer power to distract us from what's more important. And that is to prepare for Ramadan, from our brothers and sisters around the world that are suffering that need our help. Almost all of a sudden you find people have forgotten about them. And just concentrating about themselves. What happened down brothers, what happened to sisters around the world? What happened to

01:12:47--> 01:13:24

the rest of the less privileged around below? What happened to the sharing articles that are out there and making dry up for them and reminding those around you about the case in their affairs, when I've been told that the conspiracy theories have taken the time for this? And what's conspiracy theories? What is all that about? Why do people research? You know why I tell you why? So that they can reach to the bottom of things, so that they can get to find out what the truth is? Well, let me tell you something, you will never ever find out what the truth is, how many conspiracy theories have already happened in human history. And until now, they're unsolvable, you know, of aircraft

01:13:24--> 01:14:06

crashes of new old order of the moon, whether they landed on an honor or not, and so many under the the $1 bill of the US, you know, and I that's on a lot of conspiracy theories what he's all about. Now, I don't know they could be a reality to it. That's not my discussion here. But I'm saying for you and I what's the benefit to poison our mind with this irrelevant stuff that distracts us from what's what's so important in our life, to my brothers and sisters in Islam, just like it's an obligate obligation, to preserve our tongues not to speak what's wrong. And as it's an obligation to preserve our eye so that we don't see what's wrong. And it's an obligation to preserve our ears, we

01:14:06--> 01:14:42

don't hear what's wrong, then it is also obligatory upon the believer to preserve his intellect and mind and not feed rubbish. Any slam made alcohol harm, because it damages the intellect temporarily. And if having it for a long time, it'll damage it permanently. But it's that made alcohol alcohol how long because it damages the intellect. Imagine when reading these this rubbish conspiracy theories that could settle a permanent damage in a person's mind. That poisons a person's mind.

01:14:43--> 01:14:58

Then what would the ruling in Islam be and I'm not giving any photograhy but I'm giving you kind of have some thoughts so that you and I can exercise our minds a little bit to understand how harmful This is to all of us. We asked the last question at the end any

01:14:59--> 01:14:59

not online.

01:15:00--> 01:15:37

Social and you are lemon Ma and founder We ask Allah azza wa jal to teach us that which benefits us. And we asked him subhanho wa Taala to give us a good understanding of things. We asked him subhanho wa Taala to teach us beneficial knowledge to ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive our sins, to accept our deeds to give us life until we reach vulnerable and then to give us the ability to worship Him in form avant and to continue the worship of him soprano dialect as he pleases, and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring the families together to bring the families together to make him unite to love one another. And nama we ask about social also that he is this calamity upon mutton newbies,

01:15:37--> 01:16:01

Allahu alayhi wa sallam and upon everyone that is struggling and to guide those who still haven't found the path the sled and to guide everyone in Islam upon a path of righteousness and goodness in the holy Valley gold powder it is a common law hold on for your time, or some law most of them are about like identity you know, Muhammad. He also happy as you said Mr. de como de la de la Kato
