00:01:22--> 00:01:24

was in Lima, from my bag in

00:01:26--> 00:01:37

la vida de Muhammad Salallahu Salam Ala Moana Matata matar to Hakuna Matata Hakuna Matata Malala wakulla Malala. Now,

00:01:38--> 00:02:07

we start as usual, and as always by praising Allah subhanahu wa Tada. We praise Him we seek His forgiveness and we seek his assistance. We seek refuge with a lot from the evil that resides within our own selves and from the bad consequences of our own deeds. Whomsoever Allah has guided, there is no one who can lead that person astray. Loma john momentum, and whomsoever Allah has left, due to their own desire to be left

00:02:08--> 00:02:33

alone would never abandon anyone unjustly unless they themselves wish to be abandoned. No one could lead that person astray after Allah has abandoned them alone. mulata Jana, we bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship besides Allah. He is one unique in is oneness and as no partners. You further bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his last and final messenger.

00:02:35--> 00:02:41

At the end of a long line of messengers, he is the last and final one, a little salotto teslin.

00:02:42--> 00:02:47

I wanted to tell you the story that I'm sure that you all know and have heard before.

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

And it is a very famous story

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

that we know from the hydrothermal Hermosillo line, it was one of them.

00:02:58--> 00:03:06

But I'm going to tell it to you and I'm going to tell you something that you might not have noticed from that story before, I'm not going to change the story.

00:03:07--> 00:03:12

But I am going to point out something to you that you might not have been aware of before.

00:03:13--> 00:03:19

And those of us who think deeply probably know this already. And in that case, it is a reminder for you and for us as well.

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

The story concerns three men

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

from the children of Israel.

00:03:30--> 00:03:38

One of them is bald, has an issue with his hair. One of them has leprosy. One of them is blind.

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

All three tests from Allah.

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

The person with no hair has issues with his hair, he doesn't look appropriate for the people. And apparently those days as well as these days, people cared a lot about how they looked.

00:03:55--> 00:03:59

So this person was tested with the issue of baldness.

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

So an angel came to him and asked him What would you like? And he said, I would like to have my hair restored.

00:04:08--> 00:04:13

And by the permission of Allah, that Angel restored the hair of that person.

00:04:14--> 00:04:19

And he said, what would what else would you like? And he said, I would like camels.

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

Although it could be messing up the livestock in any case.

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

This person wanted camels. And Allah blessed him with a pregnant camel, camel.

00:04:33--> 00:04:41

And the wealth generated by that camel had so much bollock in it that it filled an entire valley Mashallah,

00:04:43--> 00:04:52

you know, we are very happy with what we have and this person had an entire valley so the test of baldness is gone from it.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

The test of poverty is also gone from him and hamdulillah but time goes by and another angel comes

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

disguised as a traveler,

00:05:04--> 00:05:08

someone who doesn't have anything wayfair if you want to call that person to traveler,

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

and he comes to this man, and he says to him, and he says,

00:05:16--> 00:05:25

I'm by myself, and I only have, after a lie only have you to help me. Can you please spare something from what you have here?

00:05:26--> 00:05:32

And not bald person told him, he said, Get lost, I'm busy. Go away.

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

You know, get out of here.

00:05:37--> 00:05:49

So the traveler reminded him, he said, weren't you so and so? And didn't Allah restore your hair and give you all of this wealth, and the person told an amazing line, he said, Nope, my family left this to me.

00:05:50--> 00:05:56

I inherited this. This is something I like, didn't give this to me, this is my stuff.

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

So that person disappeared.

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

And the second person, the second man was a leper. We all know that leprosy still exists nowadays. And it deforms the people's faces, until they look horrible, to the human eye.

00:06:17--> 00:06:30

And if you know someone who has that, may Allah cure them, and give them patients with their tests. It doesn't exist in this country, but it does still exist in other places, to the point where people are banished from the general population when they have that.

00:06:32--> 00:06:53

So this person had leprosy and the angel came to him and said, What would you like? And he said, I would like to not have leprosy and have the people look at me they don't like to look at me. And by the permission of Allah, that Angel restored this person back to normal again and removed all the leprosy and it's amazing it scars you even if you get treatment for it, the scars from it are still there.

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

But this one we're having to live by the permission of Allah was fully healed and cured from that.

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

He said, What would you like and he said, I would like cows.

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

So by the permission of Allah again, he was given a pregnant cow.

00:07:10--> 00:07:18

And the wealth from that cow generated an entire valley of wealth. Baraka huge, tremendous Baraka, wow, Mashallah.

00:07:21--> 00:07:32

Time goes by and another person in the same vein as the first one came as a traveler, and he said, I need help. And after all, I only have you to help me. Can you give me something of what you have here?

00:07:33--> 00:07:51

You know, and it's interesting. He didn't ask for the best Hmm. He didn't say can you give me all the valleys wealth and everything in it? I need the whole thing. Please, brother Give me the whole valley. You know, you don't need this at all. You could go back to being leprosy and poor you were that before? Wait. So give me all the well, he didn't even say they say can you give me something?

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

He didn't give a number.

00:07:54--> 00:08:04

This person told him get lost again. I'm busy. Don't you know I'm busy. I got a whole valley to take care of here man. Have an entire valley to take care of. This is my wealth.

00:08:06--> 00:08:08

person asked him he said wait a minute.

00:08:09--> 00:08:24

Why don't you so and so who had leprosy and a lot healed you have that leprosy and gave you all of this here what you have here? So Nope. My family gave this to me inherited I kind of like the president south of the border, got his wealth inherited from his dad.

00:08:26--> 00:08:36

We all know that a lot of what was up, gave everybody what they have. But this is what the people say. Now I didn't this isn't yours. A lot didn't give me this. I got this from my family.

00:08:37--> 00:08:42

And that person again vanished. And now we have a third person, blind person

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

can't see.

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

angel came to him and asked him What would you like? And he said, I would like to be able to see what the people see.

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

And by the permission of a lot, he was healed of that blindness.

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

And he was asked what kind of wealth would you like and he said, I would like I like sheep.

00:09:05--> 00:09:13

He was given a pregnant sheep by the permission of Allah Baraka from that field in entire valley. But this blind person

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

has insight.

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

And insight has nothing to do with eyesight.

00:09:21--> 00:09:42

You can see so well and miss so much. But this person will have unreliable and I mean, have vision, not eyesight. But then when Allah healed his eyesight, he kept his vision. So a person came to him and same way and he asked him is he listen, I don't have anything after Allah. I only have you to help me. Can you please help me with something?

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

Again, he didn't ask for the whole valley.

00:09:46--> 00:09:54

He didn't come and try to take you didn't steal it is the valley you can't monitor everything. You didn't have ADT those days. You could have just taken something from it. The valley.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

But this blind person he didn't say the same as the other people.

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

said take whatever you would like.

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

So

00:10:06--> 00:10:12

the traveler could have taken the whole valley because this person said Allah gave me before and he'll give me again.

00:10:14--> 00:10:26

So that person that traveler identified himself and he said, I'm serving, I'm a test for you sent from from from a lot to you. And Allah is pleased with you and he is upset with your two companions.

00:10:28--> 00:10:33

We like to think that tests and trials are afflictions,

00:10:34--> 00:10:38

bad things leprosy. Wow, leprosy is a pretty big test Mashallah.

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

baldness, if you care a lot about your hair. baldness is a tremendous test for you. It could be

00:10:47--> 00:10:52

I personally don't really worry about it too much. My kids make fun of my hairline as it is.

00:10:53--> 00:11:07

But it could be a big deal for you. blindness is a test and I was born with it and hamdulillah it is a test. But we don't think of tests as being victories. And that's the thing I wanted to point out to you that maybe you didn't think of it before.

00:11:08--> 00:11:17

That eyesight is also a test. Not having leprosy. Being healthy, is attached to

00:11:18--> 00:11:31

having your hair looking well for the people is the test your wealth is the test if poverty is a fitna for you, and you pray to Allah to alleviate that from you. And when he does, so, what do you do with it?

00:11:32--> 00:11:37

All of us in here, you think of because we like to think up quite a bit.

00:11:39--> 00:11:52

We will you will ask people about massage it and our programs and famine relief that the brothers here are collecting from Somalia. And we will say stupid things. Like, why don't the Saudis fix it?

00:11:55--> 00:12:05

Why don't the Gulf fix it? Why doesn't the Kuwaitis fix it? Do you want the Canadians to take all of your anger away? Would you like that?

00:12:07--> 00:12:13

Would you like this big long line of Kuwaitis entering gender and you're standing going, I wonder what happened? Why didn't I fix it?

00:12:16--> 00:12:22

Just poverty is a test for you. There's no question about that. But wealth is also a test for you.

00:12:23--> 00:12:29

And we are faced with a lot of things and we tend to forget that after the victory, the tests continue.

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

Allah said to us, I live in

00:12:37--> 00:12:40

Santa Ana. ohana as he is.

00:12:42--> 00:12:57

That he created life and death as a test for you. Who's going to be better as an armada? Who will have the best deeds and he knows that we're going to mess up things so he's he is as he is for those of us who don't care. And he has a lot of for for those of us who do

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

and who know that we were going to fall short.

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

But the tests don't just stop is it in nema ellerslie use law.

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

And he said it twice.

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

The use of and the result is a test.

00:13:13--> 00:13:33

The ease as well as the hardship is a test. Don't just think that when things are done, then you can just be happy and just dance about your your day as if nothing happened. And you inherited that wealth from your family. Maybe that was directly what happened. But Allah is the one who provides for you. And if Allah wanted to, we could have destroyed that wealth.

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

What would happen to your wealth if the dollar lost all of its value today?

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

In a law, how was

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

it that Allah is the provider?

00:13:49--> 00:13:55

health is important. Some people have illnesses, tremendous illnesses, Masha Allah,

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

they have cancers alive.

00:14:00--> 00:14:12

We have various amounts of diseases over here. And there on chemotherapy, dialysis, people die because they don't have dialysis in other countries I know of a person who died in South America recently because they didn't have dialysis.

00:14:14--> 00:14:18

And here we have it. So the idea of you getting healthy is real here.

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

And you pray to a lot and make you healthy.

00:14:23--> 00:14:32

People come to you and they make draw for you. And they make Rokia for you. And then when you're healthy. What do you say? Thanks to modern science.

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

Wow.

00:14:37--> 00:14:48

Thanks to all the doctors. And I mean, that's much allied, I'm not saying you shouldn't be thankful to the people. The one who hasn't thanked the people hasn't thanked a lot, but at least thank Allah first.

00:14:50--> 00:14:54

Yes, you can say that All praise is due to Allah who gave us modern science.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

That's true. All praise is due to Allah who guided these doctors so that I could be cured.

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

I'm not saying you shouldn't think that people don't be rude to them and that's also a great test for us. How are we going to be grateful?

00:15:09--> 00:15:18

Are we going to just shake our heads at people and just raise your hands like that you think a lie and you and you ignore the people? thank both but know that a lie is in charge of it first.

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

Some brothers are single. Mashallah.

00:15:23--> 00:15:32

I remember that. stay up all night pmln praying for like for a wife. Some brothers pray for for wife.

00:15:34--> 00:15:42

praying all night long, you fast in the day asking a lot. Please send you a wife or law. Please send me a wife, though just Florida, Mashallah.

00:15:44--> 00:15:49

And Allah sends you a wife? And how do you behave for her? are you grateful?

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

For everything that she does for you? are you grateful?

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

Pray for husbands sisters.

00:15:57--> 00:16:16

Same as the brothers you stay up all night making cmll families pushing you sure not getting any older and younger, long mustache. We do this all the time. It's terrible, actually. And then by the quarter of Allah, you find your quote unquote, Muslim Prince Charming. And you marry him?

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

are you thankful for what he does for you?

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

Or do you say like a lot of the ladies nowadays, he doesn't do anything for me.

00:16:26--> 00:16:36

Instead of saying that, why don't you build him up and help him do it? Same with the brothers. She doesn't do anything for me. Instead of saying that, why don't you help her and build her up because now she is a test for you.

00:16:39--> 00:16:49

The test of being single was an issue for you. Now the test of being married should be also an issue this person can get you into gender, or they can make draft for you after you die.

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

Can you imagine?

00:16:53--> 00:16:54

Can you imagine?

00:16:56--> 00:17:03

If your wife at your funeral instead of saying allow her mother Federal Home says a lie and tuck them in them? Can you imagine?

00:17:05--> 00:17:10

Can you imagine sister at your funeral. If your husband doesn't say a love affair hi he says a lie and tuck them in.

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

All I don't forgive him take revenge on him.

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

It's very serious. And it's both ways actually.

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

The test of being ignorant.

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

Some people don't know their religion and they pray.

00:17:27--> 00:17:38

Right? All along Rob Robbie's Sydney Alma asked Allah for knowledge, knowledge, Mashallah. So way opens up for them to go and study, and they go and learn.

00:17:40--> 00:17:46

And when they come back, they're less ignorant than they were before. But how do they use it?

00:17:47--> 00:18:02

Do they use that knowledge to cultivate Islam in the hearts of people? Do they use that knowledge to bring the people closer to a law? Do they use that knowledge to empower people to worship a law? Or do they use that knowledge to win silly arguments with people?

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

To badger people,

00:18:06--> 00:18:17

to hurt them and to chase them out of the measure? Because you have we have people like that who learned a lot. But all they like to do is argue with people scoring points with people, badgering people.

00:18:20--> 00:18:27

Believers learn in order to correct themselves, while fools learn in order to correct others.

00:18:29--> 00:18:37

The test is not just the bat and the afflictions but the test is also the victories there's a lot said from Allah to Allah Yama is an animal.

00:18:39--> 00:18:43

On a day when you will be questioned about every single good that you had.

00:18:45--> 00:18:54

Every good that you had you pray for children, Allah gives you children, do you raise them to worship Him? Or do you raise them to focus on other things?

00:18:56--> 00:19:00

Allah frees you from poverty brings you here. Now what do you do?

00:19:01--> 00:19:05

A lot of takes you out of cover and gives you Islam in my situation. Now what do I do?

00:19:07--> 00:19:18

Do I just become complacent? Or do I start talking and start spreading it as best I can? It's not perfect, absolutely. But anything can be fixed except nothing.

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

Zero times a million will always be zero. Always.

00:19:25--> 00:19:41

But if you're doing something for the sake of Allah, even though it may be and will be imperfect, Allah will still help you. And Allah will fix it for you and rectify it for you. But if nothing is done, then nothing can be corrected. Yeah. Oh holy how that was done for Allah when you will come when us and Allah to Allah to seek and Musa dat

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam O Allah hi Mina de la de masabi edmontonian. I wanted to share that with us just because of the fact that

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

We are constantly forgetting that that this idea of being tested is constant throughout our lives.

00:20:09--> 00:20:12

Constant but there is one final test.

00:20:14--> 00:20:17

That is before the day of judgment

00:20:18--> 00:20:19

that

00:20:20--> 00:20:22

has three questions in it.

00:20:24--> 00:20:37

Three questions, three little questions. You take exams and you study hard and you memorize things and you write essays throughout high school, middle school, university, college, whatever it is that you did.

00:20:38--> 00:20:43

This exam has one as three questions.

00:20:44--> 00:21:02

But only one shot at taking it. There's no retest, there's no do overs. There's no coming back tomorrow and doing it again. There's nothing like that. And these three questions, of course, mantra book was your Lord Medina. Amen. What is your way of life? And who is your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

And the way that we will answer those questions in the grave, because no one can lie there.

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

No one can tell things that are not true there.

00:21:12--> 00:21:22

No one can be hidden there. And the best way to do that is to be able to worship a lot in this life, and know that everything in this life is a test for you.

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

And that's okay.

00:21:26--> 00:21:34

The good that you have is a test and the bad that you have as a test. So I'm looking at people who may not have what you have, look at what you have, and what you've done with it.

00:21:35--> 00:22:03

Because the only way that we're going to get through that battle, is by answering those three questions correctly. Who is your Lord, you worship a lot in this life. That's how you know who your Lord is. What is your way of life, you practice Islam while you're alive, and let the people see the beauty of it. outside of here, don't just practice it in the meditation, practice it in the parking lot. Don't be blocking people off in the parking lot. That's part of Islam as well. Making the road easy for the people to travel on.

00:22:04--> 00:22:12

practicing Islam, inwardly as well as outwardly woman nibio. Hamas law seldom is your Prophet and his example is the one that you should follow.

00:22:13--> 00:22:45

So that when people say horrible things about him, you are a leading example of why they're lying about the process of them and the fact that they're lying about him, know that this is a test for you. So May Allah allow us all to conquer these tests of life so that we meet him in a in a in a best way. And that meeting is the best possible meeting for us in the lahoma. saloon. Yeah, you're living in amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam, Lima Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad tomasa later Allah little more either evil or he

00:22:47--> 00:23:14
