Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah li or sabe as mine, my brothers and sisters in Islam, adult Quran Allah Allah, reliance upon Allah and putting your trust in Allah. This is a noble deed an action of the heart that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves Allah azza wa jal he says, Well Allahu your ship will move out Killeen Allah subhanho wa Taala he loves those who put their trust in Him and rely upon him. So when a person is applying a telecoil true reliance upon Allah in his life, he is on a path that Allah subhanahu wa Dinah loves, such a person is walking on Earth and Allah azza wa jal loves him without coolala Allah reliance upon Allah is a condition for proper and

00:00:50--> 00:01:42

correct, amen. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, but Allah azza wa jal, he says, while Allah He fit our crew in can to move meaning. He says, Put your trust in Allah rely upon Allah if indeed you are believers. And why does the believer rely upon Allah? Why do we put our trust in Allah? Allah azza wa jal, he says in Salton for con beautifully, he says subhanho wa taala. Without canal and how ye levy layer moot, he says, Put your trust and rely upon the all living the one who does not die, Allahu Akbar, within this area, there is a reason for why we rely upon Allah alone and nothing and no one else, relying upon the old living the one who doesn't die. So what this means is, everything

00:01:42--> 00:02:33

besides Allah and everyone besides Allah will end and will be perished and will be destroyed everything. So if you relied upon other than Allah, if you relied upon someone other than Allah, then the moment that person dies or ends, your matters will never be fulfilled, it will not be fulfilled. However, if you rely upon Allah, He is the old living and he never dies. Therefore, your matters and your affairs in life will be fulfilled. Subhan Allah, this is why we rely upon Allah because he's the old living and he never ends. He never dies. Subhanahu Medina, my brothers and sisters in Islam, what is a taco what is the true definition of a token and Ola macro hammer home

00:02:33--> 00:03:23

Allah, they say a token is two parts and listen to this very carefully it is two parts. The first part is to take by the means and do whatever is necessary, do what you have to do. And then rely upon Allah not upon what you did is exactly what a token is. To take by the means. Do what needs to be done, and then rely and put your trust in Allah, not upon what you did. Let me give you two examples be in the left and then we'll conclude. The first example is the story of hedger. Obioma one her and her son is Mary Ibrahim alayhis. Salam, Allah azza wa jal had commanded him to go to where the house of Allah is built now to muckety muck up Rama, and he ended up there and then Allah

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

azza wa jal commanded him to travel and to leave his family in Makkah. And at that time, there were no people living there, and there was no water. There's nothing no one can live there in Mecca. So Ibrahim alayhis, salam, he left his wife has your OB Allahu anha and Izmir ale. And Ishmael was only a newborn. He's still breastfeeding from his mother. He put them in this valley. And Ibrahim Ali, his sudden began to take off, he began to walk away from them.

00:03:54--> 00:04:43

And hello, John, began to follow Ibrahim. So Ibrahim alayhi salam said to her to remain here where she is, she kept following him. And she said to him, Where are you going? Where are you going? Are you leaving us here? Until she said to him, Allahu Amala can be Heather. Did Allah commanded you to leave us here and you walk away? So then he said to her Nam, he said, Yes, Allah commanded me that I leave you here, in a place where there's no food and no water and no life and there's no one here and he commanded me to go, Allahu Akbar, in this moment has your will be Allah one hand, she said, even lay you the year on? She said, then surely, verily, Allah will look abandon us, Allah will not

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

neglect us. She put her trust and reliance upon Allah azza wa jal. She knows that Allah azza wa jal will look after her and her son. So now she stayed there. And Ibrahim alayhi salam took off he went until he cannot be seen anymore.

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

And he left with hedger, Robbie Allahu Allah and he smiled, he left with them a bowl of dates, and a jar of water. She ate from the dates and she drank until it had finished. And the milk that was in her breast had finished. And her son is married began as the Hadith mentions in Sahara and Buhari Yatala book, he began to move his tongue quickly. And he's moving his body in agony and in pain of thirst and hunger. And as a mother, she doesn't know what to do. So she left her son is married Ali Salam, and she walked until she reached a mountain, which was the mountain of a sofa. And she rose on this mountain looking perhaps she can find someone or find some slices, some kind of life. Maybe

00:05:44--> 00:06:34

someone can conceive her and she can go on to ask for water and drink and whatever it is, and food from them. She didn't find anyone. So she went down the mountain of a sofa. And she quickly ran up to an Morwell. And she did this seven times OB Allah one hat. And this is why in anomala, and how we do assign remembering this story. So at the end of the seven laps between a software will not work, and her son is married is down, and he's crying, and he's in pain, and he's thirsty and he's hungry. Allahu Akbar, and this is a desert, there's no life, there's nothing. She heard a sound. And then she said, ma, ma, ma beans Sheesh, as guru she's telling herself decided, and then she heard a

00:06:34--> 00:07:21

sound. And that was Allah sending Gibreel Allah you salaam, the leader and the master of all angels, he came down, and he began to dig the earth effort. Effortlessly without any effort, very easily began to dig the earth. Some generations mentioned with the heel of his foot, some say with his wings, Allahu Allah. But he dug the earth, and some some water a blessed water until today it exists. It popped out from the earth, it burst out from the earth. And then how's your OB Allahu Anhu came down, and she began to bring this water together and this is what Zamzar means zamzam meaning to bring something together, wouldn't it be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, may Allah

00:07:21--> 00:08:04

have mercy on the mother of his married, if she did not do this zum zum would have covered the earth. So she did this to some of them and she began to drink and she gave her son Ismail Ali salaam to drink and they were saved by Allah solution. This is a perfect example of what the local reliance upon Allah and trust in Allah means. This is a perfect example. Because it covers those two parts I told you. Number one was the fact that she did not just sit down waiting for something to come waiting for a miracle to happen, even though the miracle did happen, but she did not wait for it. What had happened is she got up and she did everything she can. She went up a mountain, and she

00:08:04--> 00:08:51

walked between a sofa our motto was seven times. This is the effort that she put this is the hard work that she put, looking for food and looking for water looking for someone that can rescue them from hunger and from thirst. But she did not rely on her effort. She did not rely on her work from a site from a sovereign. Moreover, she didn't rely on this. She didn't trust and believe that her action will bring result. She had relied upon Allah azza wa jal where is this when she said to Ibrahim Ljubljana when she said to Ibrahim that indeed Allah will not abandon us, Allah will not neglect us. This is a Torquil Allah Allah, that you do what is supposed to be done, but you do not

00:08:51--> 00:09:38

rely upon what you do. You rely upon Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, when they need to work can Allah Allah, for who husband and whoever relies upon Allah, Allah will suffice him, Allah will look after him. Look at her job, Allah has salah, and look how Allah has always been looked after her Subhanallah in a valley where there is no vegetation, no crops, no person, nothing there. And even then, ZamZam would burst from the earth, and it becomes a source of nutrient and water for people until this very day. Every time you go to an animal, you go to Mecca, and you see and you drink zamzam and you do a say between Safa and Marwa the biggest lesson you're learning in

00:09:38--> 00:09:56

life is true. Torquil Allah Allah. Look at the case of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he finally was given command by Allah and give him permission by Allah to undergo an era from Mecca and Medina. He didn't just walk out of the house and say Allah Allah azza wa jal will look after us No.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

I will work and probably Allah one who had prepared

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

And to camels for us all Allah and for Abu Bakar look at the preparation. I told you that what good is that you have to do some work you have to do first you need to do what you must do. Do your preparations put your effort to Kenyans were prepared. Food would come to us almost I sell them through the door of Abu Bakr and resolve Allahu alayhi wa sallam hired a guide Abdullah I don't like it, that he guide them out of Mecca overwinter and Medina because the roads in the valleys are very difficult to navigate. And then in the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam receives news that the kufr of Qureshi are after him. So as a result, he goes and he ends up in a cave or for any height in a

00:10:42--> 00:10:53

cave, but they look at the sea always always is preparation, camels and food and, and a guide with him and he hides in a cave. And then when Obi Wan Kenobi Allahu Anhu

00:10:54--> 00:11:40

realizes that gopher Quraysh are at the mouth of the cave, he says to us all Allah sallahu alayhi wa sallam if these disbelievers look down at their feet, they will see us. Look what Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he did not say to him, yeah, he didn't say we're in a cave. It's dark here. They cannot see us. No, he didn't rely on this. He said to him in nulla Havana and Allah azza wa jal recorded this in the Quran. He said to me, Abu Bakr, Allah is with us. You see a thought when he did everything he was supposed to do of preparation, he even hitting the cave when there was danger. But he did not rely on the cave, nor did he rely on the darkness of the cave. He relied upon Allah and

00:11:40--> 00:12:26

he thought Obi Wan, probably Allahu Anhu and he taught the Ummah until this day what truth our code means. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, that's how we face life. When you leave the house, and you fee for your safety. You do everything that is required to be done for your protection. Do everything read a girl, price alert and Fisher in congregation. If you're in your car, buckle up bright Oh, this is what you're supposed to be doing. And then rely upon Allah. Do not rely upon your girl and upon your solid Fisher and do not rely upon the safety measures that you took know, rely upon Allah. If you're sick, take the medicine. Look for the best doctor, look for the best

00:12:26--> 00:13:11

hospitals. Do the best care that you can do for yourself, do all of this. But to not rely on this. Don't rely on the doctor. Don't rely on the medicine don't rely on anything except Allah assertion because he is a Chevy. When you're going out, to provide for your family, when you're going out to provide for your family. Do what needs to be done. Take by the means go and work those hours. Ask Allah azza wa jal to give you the help and the assistance you need. But then don't rely on your work and on your money and what you're buying from the shop. Don't rely on all of this, to keep you alive and to keep you nourished. And so you rely upon Allah all of these were means that you are supposed

00:13:11--> 00:13:16

to do you rely upon Allah azza wa jal if you're a student that has an exam,

00:13:17--> 00:14:06

work hard, study. Do your work, understand. Ask the questions, get the answers, and study extra hard. But then don't rely on this. rely upon Allah for success and that you pass your exams and you move on in life. This is the meaning of a talk call my brothers and sisters in Islam. Always, always, always make sure that the meaning of a token is living in your heart, every moment and every second in your life. Torquil Allah Allah is from the greatest actions of the heart. It is a condition for proper Amen. And it is something that Allah loves from the believer. Imagine this. If every second of your life you had correct Torquil in it. You're a person that's walking on the

00:14:06--> 00:14:35

earth. And Allah association is pleased with you and Allah azza wa jal loves you Allahu Akbar, we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant us Torquil in our life, we ask him subhanho wa Taala to be pleased with us and we ask him SubhanaHu wa ala that he forgive our sins and our shortcomings in the holy veliko called erotic or some Allahu wa salam Opelika ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
