stoeckel. Hadith Akita Bala, Allah Allah, Allah dia de Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are in a short while moving on to her wakulla modesetting beta aku livedata Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah Tim phenol adjani La Jolla community from about all praise and thanks belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala and may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon his servant and final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as follows my dear respected brothers in Islam in sha Allah tala in today's brief hobo, what I'd like to share with you is a few as from solothurn, gaff, and these as Allah subhanho wa Taala concludes with them the first story in solothurn which is the story of the

00:02:05--> 00:02:44

people of the cave, and of course, you know, those that have read solotica have today and it's still fresh on their tongue and on their mind, and those inshallah Donna that intentar decided after salata Juma, you know that surah telegraph is made up of four stories, the entire sola. And so the first story of them is the story of the people of the cave. And this story is about a few boys that go through a trial in their Deen. And you know, of course, the trial being tested in your Diem is one of the greatest trials that one could ever face in his life. This is why their story was mentioned the first story and sort of, as opposed to the rest of the stories and their story, earn

00:02:44--> 00:03:28

the name that gave the solar its name solar Telegraph, as opposed to it being called any other anything other other than that, Allah subhanho wa Taala calls it food. Because this story was the greatest story in terms of what one can one person can face in his life of Fitton and fitna of a dean. Imagine being tested in your deen and then you pass the people of the people of the cave. They were tested in their Deen they pass the exam will also panna Hua tada at the end of their story tells us how they remained firm and how they remain committed and steadfast upon the deen until they died until they met Allah subhanahu wa Tada. This is what we want to establish. And this is what we

00:03:28--> 00:04:09

want to answer. The question is how does one remain steadfast and firm upon the deen of Allah subhanahu wa tada when he's been rigorously tested in his Deen, when he's been roughly tested in his Deen and his commitment to use them for let's understand, firstly, my brothers in each time that the people of the cave they existed in a time. This was the time after Isola, you served before Solomon, Solomon while he was alive. They came about in a time where there was no profits. There were no messengers. There were no schools. There were no Islamic teachers. There were no Islamic books, no Islamic websites, there were no Islamic colleges. And there were no libraries, no massages, nothing

00:04:09--> 00:04:48

at all got to do with the deen. And yet they still remained firm upon the Wii and the ask yourself the question, what would happen to you and I, if we came in a time where all of them essentially shut down, and all these websites shut down, and all the muscles you'd close down, and the Islamic colleges closed down, and these funny books got burned, what will happen to you and I so that you can understand why this story was a great story. Because even though this is a time that you went by, they will remain confirmed, and they remain committed upon their deed. Nowadays, if one element and one aspect of the deed was targeted, let's say a Masjid closed down, I must say it wasn't given

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

a license to go ahead as something of the Dean was spoken about. You find people automatically they shake and they panic and an attack comes through to them and the job is off and the beat comes off.

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

The name is changed to some other thing and he get away from the Islamic identity. We need to understand these people went through a rough time. They were tested rigorously in their Deen. They remained firm and they remained committed. What does a lot of

00:05:15--> 00:06:04

teachers have their story at the end of the story in terms of what they held on that Allah subhanho wa Taala gifted them with the gift of steadfastness until they died. Their story is a long story. And after the story, Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentions and this year my brothers in Islam is for everyone that says how do I remain firm upon the deen? Everyone that feeds his commitment upon the deen, everyone that is competing for everyone that is completing and for everyone that is saying how can I stay on the path until I reach Allah subhanho wa Taala a lot of social gives us the prescription in 327 28 and 29. These are the three as they include three prescriptions, the one who

00:06:04--> 00:06:34

carries that holds on to these three elements that Allah subhanho wa Taala will teach us these nilla no matter what test is put in in terms of his deep beef Nila, he'll remain upon La ilaha illAllah until he meets Allah subhanho wa Taala let's see how Allah subhanho wa Taala begins the first 127 after their story. He says whenever we fulfill our themes on earth Amir thinks he knows their duties are fully level a level B man every full level where you send out your

00:06:35--> 00:07:19

smear, man a homerun don't even worry whether you should poofy hug me that's the end of the story number one what Luma oh here la coming kitabi Oh big level with de la liga Lima T one and Tashi them into dude he will Tada. That's number one. What Luma Oh, here he like, recite what was revealed unto you from the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even the first prescription, the first medication that you find on the prescription is to hold on to the book of Allah and continuously recited what drew the word flow doesn't just mean to read the book, what do means to read and follow the meanings of the ayah that's a dilemma. What to Allah subhana wa tada says, read the book and to my brother and

00:07:19--> 00:07:23

he said, why aren't we reading Allah subhanho wa Taala this book should

00:07:25--> 00:08:06

remain 23 E's going up and down, bringing down the idea so that you and I can have a book at the end of the day so we can read and so easily, we turn away from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we don't give it that honored and valuable time in our day to read some part of it. And if we found some some free time we read maybe if Ramadan was to come, we'll try to read a once. What is this attitude with the book of Allah? Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that the first thing you need to do to hold on if you are tested in your deal, what will give you guarantee that you will remain upon your deal is that you do one thing Firstly,

00:08:07--> 00:08:53

a communicator read a lot of social says Nah, this man Jani. This is implying greatness of what was given to you which is the book, what Luma Lake, what was given to you lift the shift to your honor and your dignity is with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The closer you are to the book of Allah, the more honor you are given. And the further away you are from the deen from the Quran, and from the word of Allah, the more you become humiliated, and the easier the enemy of Allah subhanho wa Taala gets you and removes your deed. What Luma Oh, here, la coming kitamura Big Brothers in Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says with Luma la coming kita big, what was revealed to you from

00:08:53--> 00:08:56

the book of your Lord, He did not say what

00:08:57--> 00:09:40

Avila mean. kitabi Robic your Lord, why? Because he's your Lord. He knows your problems. He knows your sufferings. He knows what you need. And as long as you read his book, you always remain on that path. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says after that Lem Oba de la de Cali, mad Murthy. There is nothing that will exchange the words of Allah. One of the meanings of this is that the rules of Allah subhanho wa Taala never change. This has always been the rule of law, that any nation, any person that existed in any time, if he was to hold on to the book of Allah, he's guaranteed commitment on his Islam and on his team. This is a rule level with Dr. Lee Kelly Murthy. And this is why Allah

00:09:40--> 00:09:47

subhanho wa Taala would say to buddy, when they were about to lose their Deen a lot of social would say to whom

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

hold on to this book that we were given that was given to you hold on to it firmly and strongly. had a look at anyone that abandoned the book of Allah always fell into the traps of a shoe

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

Baldwin is hoobler Allah subhanho wa Taala he says about Bernice Lloyd, when they were given the book and they slowly drifted away from the Quran, they slowly drifted away from the book that was given to them. Allah subhanho wa Taala he said about them. Nevertheless avina Udo kita kita la hora hora de m gonna home lay on the moon. When they threw the book behind their back, what happened was

00:10:26--> 00:11:05

they immediately followed the path over shavon First there's only two paths in life. Either you walk on the path of Allah or the if you don't do that, the other path that you have is going to be the path of a shoe barn and that's exactly what happened to them. So the first medicine The first thing that one is supposed to hold on to so he can guarantee if you lay it on a commitment for himself is what Luma or here la coming kettlebell a big level of a deal and he came out he wanted to shoot I mean, dude, he was my brothers inestimable bond is about to come. What is your plans with the plan when we come in from Oban start from now hold on to something from the Quran? Allah subhanho wa

00:11:05--> 00:11:05

Taala. He says

00:11:09--> 00:11:14

that a group of the wish deikun they came to him and they said to him, we'll call it Lavina Guevara.

00:11:18--> 00:12:00

He said, disbelievers. They came to the salon so I said them. And they said to him, how come the Quran wasn't given to you as a whole? You know the prophets before nobody saw Salam when it was being revealed to them. The whole book is to come down. The Quran was the only book that came down over 23 years. So they said, How come the plant didn't come down on yours? What, why? philosophy panel? What are the answers and he says, because Alec Leno's are better behaved. The only reason he came down bit by bit so that we keep your heart steadfast and firm upon the deen of Allah. And Allah. Allah took from that, that if one was to have the same relationship with the Quran, in the

00:12:00--> 00:12:29

same manner as you did Allah, He said I would come down with it. B is the law. That's the reason for his commitment, then you should read would come down every day of 23 years. In other words, in the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam would recite the Quran every single day. So if one was to read it in the same manner, it was revealed, then B is the lead, this is a solution for him. And it is the first solution that will know Subhana Allah speaks about and the people of the cave. That's how exactly they were. Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he mentioned about them, he says, I'm hasip

00:12:31--> 00:13:19

team. My brothers in Islam was the book that they had, that had some of their DNA on it. They had engraved the al Qaeda in a rock in a stone, and they used to read from it. That was like equivalent to what we have off the land, and they used to hold on to it. And this is how Allah subhanaw taala gave them steadfastness. That's number 127. Now what's the second solution? Allah subhanho wa Taala he says after this was enough, second allatheena drew Belem. bilhah, data valachi second solution, a lot of social he says, and remain patient with those who worship and call them to their Lord, day and night. In other words, the second solution is good companionship that you find for yourself good

00:13:19--> 00:13:58

companionship and your whole bond toward Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, was Bill, be patient with such people? Why does he say Be patient? And essentially, it's going to be difficult to keep yourself in good companionship, and define for yourself a good circle of brothers and to remain with them it's going to be difficult. So a lot of sources begins the ayah by saying what's fair enough second knifes, like it's difficult on the knifes so he says force that knifes and allow it to remain patient with good companionship, that no good companionship is what is going to keep you going ahead tough and strong. Until we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala good companionship. And you know, let's

00:13:58--> 00:14:39

understand what's the you know, so how to love people that lived a misguided life before it's them before they were committed before they were guided. They lived a misguided life. When they used to be in a misguided life. They used to enjoy the company of bad friends. They used to enjoy luxury cars. They used to enjoy you know, eating out every day so you know there's watching together Yeah, the alpha sat together. But then when Allah subhanahu wa tada gave them guidance, and they came into Deen and they found brothers in the masjid. What happened? Obviously, the Brotherhood in the masjid didn't have that lifestyle like their old friends. So the people in the masjid had a simple, easy

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

life, had a humble life, eating cheap, you know, driving cheap cars, no jokes, there were no movies, there's nothing to go on their phone they upon their Dean reading and attending lessons. What happens to a person at the time when he's got this good companionship to compare with his old companionship, what happens? He gets

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

up, and he wants to go back to his old way. Allah subhanaw taala. In this moment he says, What's weird? Nuff said? When a patient it's not going to be easy enough soccer man levina Ronaldo, we need to understand my brothers in Islam. When we have good companions in our friend. Why do we stay with them? What's the purpose? Why do we love them? It's very easy to understand that the only friends of this worldly life and friends that are corrupt and old and bad friends, you stay with them because of the dunya obviously, but in Islam you need to understand and the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says, men are born monopoly law he woman Ali,

00:15:39--> 00:15:50

Baba filler, and Galileo he forgot his email to you remain with good companionship because you love them not for all the reasons you love them for a loss.

00:15:52--> 00:16:30

And the loss of Henry Solomon says that the one who loves for the sake of Allah, he has completed he's a man. In other words, when you remain patient with good companionship. This increases your Eman for loss of Hannah horadada teaches us that this is the second solution to remain firm and steadfast upon your team. In times where your team is being tested, was built in a second or levina. Yet the room not above home. Yet there are only two present tense. In other words, they continually worship the Lord. This is what Brotherhood is supposed to be doing. What's the use of brotherhood if they don't worship Allah subhanho wa Taala together

00:16:32--> 00:16:47

in the morning, when I see in the afternoon, why you really do know Joe sincerely for his sake. They want to stay seek His pleasure to partner with data that Allah subhanho wa Taala warns in the recent law while you're sitting up, and he says steam was

00:16:48--> 00:17:20

gone home when I got home And don't you dare turn your eyes away from them, let alone turn your whole body and run away from them. Don't you dare turn your eyes away from good brothers. Good companionship is what is going to get you to Allah subhanho wa Taala what a condom. And if you looked at to the case of harville Golf, Danny let's just understand what's with Neff second na with with them, you need to be with them all the time. Some people that have the impression that being with good companionship is only

00:17:21--> 00:17:24

only only when they see them in the wrong

00:17:25--> 00:17:27

manner Ma and

00:17:28--> 00:17:47

when he was described, and his companions relationship was described with him, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Muhammad Rasulullah will Lavina na who and you know the companions their relationship with him. Wherever he went. They were always with him. That's what good companionship is. So it's not only in the masjid.

00:17:48--> 00:18:12

Everywhere, look at the people of the cave, their relationship. They slept in the cave together. They ate together. They went to prison together. They ran away together. They gave down together and they died together. Everything was done together. religious aspect and all the aspect for this is real companionship. What was that enough sick Mr. levina drone on a bone bill of identity when

00:18:13--> 00:18:31

you return OSHA who won a tournament of Canada who won the cleaner? First one was reading the Quran. second one was being with good companionship. In that same area. Allah subhanho wa Taala warned in the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam from bad companionship listen to how it comes in the air. He says well

00:18:32--> 00:18:49

do not they and do not follow men. often they're called the cleaner, the one who we made his heart heedless in terms of Indian in concern with our with Da Hua. We're gonna move into when you become heedless and you turn away from the book of Allah. The only result is

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

he follows his desire, he follows his whims

00:18:55--> 00:19:30

and his affairs were destroyed and ruined at the end. But look what the example he is Subhana Allah, when Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about good companionship. He spoke about it in the plural, or spirit Neff. Sekar ma la, Vina, una that's a plural. In other words, find for yourself a group of good believers. When Allah subhanho wa Taala warned and forbid us from that companionship. He mentioned that in the singular sets. He said when a man called the who, and the cleaner What? Tada ha ha hoo.

00:19:31--> 00:19:59

Hoo. A lot of social when he warned us of bad companionship. It came in the singular Why? You know why? Let no one bad friend is enough to destroy you. One bad friend you walk with is enough to destroy your entire deal and set you on the wrong path altogether. philosopy hautala highlights in the language. That's the second solution that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us now final solution that allows or gives him this is the last of the 29

00:20:00--> 00:20:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, or Colleen has become and see the truth from your Lord. This third means engage in a dour Illa called to Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the solution. Number one, read the Quran. Number two, stay with good companionship. And number three, engage in a dialogue in love. This is what made us Hello Medina Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He says, couldn't

00:20:29--> 00:20:53

the nurse that you are the best of nations that was ever brought out on the face of this earth way? That Luna Vilma Ruth, what an hoh nanny mooncup What took me una Villa because you enjoyed the good and you forbid the evil and you believe in the law three things which one is the most important of the three that you believe in Allah is the most important of the three So why was it mentioned that then Allah

00:20:55--> 00:21:21

what an Hunan in mooncup What took me no novella, why? Because true he man in a love will not be achieved until you're enjoying the good and the evil. So he began by saying, enjoying the good for the day evil as a result to me know who would be guaranteed in your life for loss of Hannah hautala he mentioned he mentions as well moving on a solid

This is if you were to hold on to this is the legacy data you'll find yourself. Confirm and you'll find yourself steadfast upon the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:21:42--> 00:22:25

As we said, they were people that read their book. They hang out with each other in all aspects of life. And they also engaged in Adama Yani from the many words they spoke in their life. Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to tell us from their words, what they spoke of calling to a love when they were standing before their king being trialed in their journey in their case, when they said the Buddha of Busan our living room in dooney, Ilaha Nakula Eden Shah Baba, this is the one after it was their way in how they call to Allah subhana wa tada in front of the king and in front of all the people, a lot of social choose to tell us these words, more than anything else they spoke in their

00:22:25--> 00:22:37

life, because this was their, our Allah Subhana Allah, Josie Allahu Allah. He brings an absolute beautiful illustration to this. He said the believer in the time of Fitton,

00:22:38--> 00:23:20

if he wants to remain steadfast on his Deen, he does these three things. And he illustrated it. He said, it is a man that holds the land in one hand, and he holds his brother's hand in the other hand, and they walk together calling to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. That's the package that will keep you firm and steadfast and committed upon your deal. Until you meet Allah Subhana horadada business delay tonight, reread the source once again. So let's go and look into these details that Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches you, you and I, every single Friday, every Friday, we're supposed to read this. And every Friday we're reminded of the story and the solution that have what these boys had.

00:23:20--> 00:24:01

Look how honored they were. Look how have an example they were that a lot of social media mentioned in the Quran, that would remain until the day of judgment. We read it and we continuously seek guidance and wisdom and lessons and benefit from it. And it wasn't a it was guidance for the loss of a loved one. Before it was guidance for me you knew this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches. This is how one remains firm, committed and steadfast upon his Deen in times of fit and wealth colossal panna hautala that He bestows His mercy upon us and we ask him subhana wa tada to grant us good companionship in this world the life and we asked him subhanho wa Taala to admit us and them in
