Well, how you don't hit the head you Muhammad in sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sharon Omoni mcdata to her deserting bedarra What could be the action? Dadada well Coolangatta Latin for now.

00:01:22 --> 00:02:03

Anyone who studies the seal of the prophets of Allah Allah he will send them will see that the prophets of Allah wa he will send him and his companions are the Allahu Anhu mentioned Mehreen they went through numerous situations on numerous occasions that were difficult and hard. But Allah azza wa jal describes in the Quran shook them to their core and their foundation. Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran was ruled zero. They were shaken to the Corps during some of those incidents that took place. But one of the things that you will also find in the Sierra is that when they responded when they acted or they reacted, it was always governed by the principles of the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:36

And that is how the Muslim should be every event that takes place every statement that you make, every action that you perform, every overt display of emotion, shall be governed by the principles of the Quran and the Sunnah. Because that is what Allah azza wa jal commands and that is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions went through many different situations that they had to face. Many of them were difficult 23 years of Prophethood many issues, many incidents in the Sera, the you will find that the human through trial and tribulation.

00:02:38 --> 00:03:15

But one of the other things that you will find within the SeRa is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Companions need to have that knew how to deal and you have to interact and react to those incidents that took place, these unfolding events that have taken place in the last week in the Middle East. What the brother was speaking about before I came upon the minbar. This is something which you're all very familiar with, and no. And one of the things that it does to us when we hear what's going on in the world, and these events that are taking place is that it gives to a sometimes a sense of helplessness, or hopelessness, and the prophets of Allah who it was sent him

00:03:15 --> 00:03:52

and his companions went through difficulty but you will never find within the Syrah that they felt that type of hopelessness or helplessness, because Allah azza wa jal told them, that if you believe in Allah, and you believe in the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal and his justice, and you believe and trust in Allah azza wa jal and you have certainty in his promises, then you have no need to despair, because the Promise of Allah will always come true. Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, he speaks about the Battle of Wuhan in Surah Al Imran, the lessons that you can gain there from many incidents that took place during the battle. He was one of the most trying periods in the lifetime of the

00:03:52 --> 00:04:34

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the Companions experienced 70 of their number were killed on that day. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself was injured. And there were rumors that were being spread, that he had died upon that Battlefield. So Allah Allah he will send them Allah subhanaw taala when he speaks in the Quran, about what took place on the day Allah azza wa jal says addressing the believers, what Allah has no one to Mala Ilona in quantum meaning don't become weakened, no despair, for you will always be uppermost in quantum meaning if you have your iman and it is through this lens that I want to address you today. The lens of Eman because everything that

00:04:34 --> 00:05:00

takes place and everything that happens to the Muslim in this world it is part of our belief that it is the product of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that it is the decree of Allah azza wa jal whether it be good or whether it be bad, and that is a testament of your order is a sign or a test for your faith, to see how you will react, to see the mindset that you have to see whether you feel helpless and hopeless or whether you will

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

Do what Allah azza wa jal has commanded you to do in those situations, Allah subhanaw taala tells us in verse the verse that comes after the one that I recite in Surah Imran

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

em says, Come Quran

00:05:15 --> 00:05:53

if there has come upon you some calamity, meaning and what happened on the day and then many nations have faced calamities before you what didn't kill a yarmulke, there will have been a nurse. And those are the days that we interchange amongst the people. And then Allah azza wa jal says, once a year and Allah who live in a menu, so that Allah will know who from amongst you possess true Iman, how will you behave? How will you respond? What are the words that you utter? As the prophets of Allah, Allah he will send him would say when someone would pass away, that the heart grieves and the eye you shed tears, but we only say that which pleases our Lord Subhana wa Tada. So how do you

00:05:53 --> 00:06:35

respond? We feel that sense of hopelessness but Allah azza wa jal says that the believers are never hopeless. They're never helpless. Why? Because Allah azza wa jal wants to see you how you will respond in terms of your Eman. Sometimes the things that take place and the incidents that happen don't directly affect me a new meaning that are happening here to us right now. But Allah subhanaw taala is still testing us in the way that we will behave in the way that we will respond. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spent 23 years upon this planet, as a prophet and messenger of Allah, some 20 years of them were full of difficulty and hardship, walls and battles and enemies and

00:06:35 --> 00:07:10

persecution and torture and oppression. And throughout all of those 20 years, if you look at the life of the prophet Sallallahu, it was sin them every time the companions went through some difficulty every time they went through some hardship. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do? How did you renew the bond of the Muslims his own mother companions with the Lord and the creator. And one of the things that you will find is that Allah azza wa jal, His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he focused on this aspect of Eman, strengthen the Eman of the believers. Why because we know that victory comes from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. We know that

00:07:10 --> 00:07:48

everything that happens in this dunya is by the decree of Allah azza wa jal. So the believer even in the most difficult of times, when they're witnessing things that they feel that they can't do anything about, that are beyond their means and capability to resolve to end, the turn to the Lord and the creator subhanho wa taala, not only in terms of DUA and in sadaqa. But in terms of also their own Iman and their worship, their own Eman and their worship. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he focused throughout those years of his profited upon knowledge upon teaching the believers upon bettering them in terms of their character in terms of their Ibadah in

00:07:48 --> 00:08:24

terms of their knowledge, in terms of bringing them closer to Allah subhana wa Tada 23 years and that was one of the major things if not the most important thing that he did. So Allahu wa salam, teaching people the Quran, what are the companions doing between those events, those battles are taking place, where FROM AMONGST THEM people are dying from amongst them people are being tortured and persecuted, but from amongst them there are they are going through so many trials and tribulations you find that the companions were people of knowledge, people of the bad people are recitation of Quran, people are making vicar of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada because when you strengthen

00:08:24 --> 00:09:02

your iman, there is more Baraka in the sadaqa that you give. When you strengthen your iman and your worship your DUA is more likely to be answered when you're strengthening yourself and the strengthening the people that are around you. And that is where Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions this in the Quran in numerous places. Allah azza wa jal says in Surah Tober I went on your own and only afternoon if he called the army Murata normal routine for malaria to buena Willa, whom yet the karoun Do they not see that they are tried and tested every year once or twice, at least? Major tests afflict you, sometimes personally to you, and sometimes not to you, but from the events that

00:09:02 --> 00:09:37

you can see around you. From malaria to Boone Avila whom we have the karoun but they don't meet Tober and they don't turn back to Allah. And then we'll stop and think about what Allah azza wa jal is telling them. That is a test for you and me. Even though we're not in Gaza. We're not experiencing what they're going through. We're not going through those events, but Allah azza wa jal is testing our faith as well. These days, they are Friday, all of us were able to wake up in relative safety and comfort. They don't have that luxury. All of us are able to come to the masjid and pray Jamar, where they fear for themselves and their families, you're going to go home and

00:09:37 --> 00:10:00

you're going to have an evening meal with your family. And you're going to do what you do on your normal Friday routine. That's not something that everyone can enjoy. So what will you do with those blessings of Allah subhana wa Tada. If you don't see the trials that others are going through, and it doesn't make you turn to Allah azza wa jal make Toba to Allah. Thank Allah praise Him. Use those blessings that Allah have given to

00:10:00 --> 00:10:37

you so that you may increase in worship and any man, then you didn't benefit from that test. You're from those people that Allah speaking about and Allah dresses this verse in Surah Toba to the Munna Philippine the hypocrites because they're like those people that don't take any lesson from the signs that Allah gives to them from malaria to buena wala homea the Cologne, they don't make Tober they never reminded they don't see lessons and benefits and what other people are suffering and going through Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, he tells us you're living in a menu or people of Eman and what you feel that is a sign of Eman. When you see those images and you hear those stories,

00:10:37 --> 00:11:16

and you feel helpless, you feel the pain and empathize for the suffering of others. That's a sign of iman. The Prophet told me sal Allahu Allah. He was sending me the hadith of normality being mushy about the Allahu Bukhari and Muslim method. Me Nina fatawa. Him what are our homie he matatu for him committed? They just said they're stuck. I mean, we're all done Tada or the Husa. It will just they will whom I was the example of the believers. He said, Sal, Allahu Allah. He will send them the sign of Eman in the mutual love. The mutual affection and their mutual mercy is that when a group of them is suffering from pain, the rest of them feel that pain and they empathize with it. That's a sign of

00:11:16 --> 00:11:20

Eman. So Allah subhanaw taala addresses the people of Eman.

00:11:21 --> 00:12:03

He says you will live the man who will you people of Eman in terms of Rula haYom circle. If you help Allah and the religion of Allah azza wa jal Allah will help you. How do you have the religion of Allah subhana wa Tada? How do you help Allah azza wa jal in his religion. It's by increasing in your knowledge and your Eman by doing greater acts of worship by doing that which is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal by inviting others to the path of Allah subhana wa Tada Allah says, do that, and his his hope will come to you is divine assistance will come to you. In the verse in surah. to Hajj Allah is even more explicit. Williams run Allah who may unsolo and Allah will surely help those who help him.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:42

How do we help Allah? Allah tells us in the next verse, And levena imagekind noun Phil autumn upon Masato Zeca What am I will build my roofie Anil, Juan Carlos, what Allah here are people to mourn those when we give them the ability, they established the salah, and they give this a car, and they enjoy the good and they forbid the evil. Allah azza wa jal gave you the opportunity to worship him to seek knowledge to learn. And you see the suffering of others who don't have that luxury at this time in place. So what will you do with those blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given to you, the prophets on Allah where it was sent them the companions or the Allahu Anlage Marine, they

00:12:42 --> 00:13:17

understood this principle. And that is why throughout the 23 years of the Prophet one of the prophets of Allah, who Allah you will send them but even after he died, it he salatu salam, during the reign of the companions of the time of the companions, they understood this principle, during times of challenge and difficulty and hardship, they will turn to Allah azza wa jal. They do more than bad. They seek more knowledge, they try to better the character and interactions and dealings with others. They look at those things that are most pleasing and beloved to Allah, and the increase in them not decrease. And Allah subhanaw taala then shows his blessings. And he shows his mercy upon

00:13:17 --> 00:13:55

those groups of people. And that is because they understand that this is something which isn't just for a day, or a week or a month, but Allah azza wa jal tests people for great lengths of time, Allah subhanaw taala tells us throughout the Quran, that Allah azza wa jal will help you but he doesn't say that the help will be immediate. Allah says that he will respond to your DUA, but he doesn't see immediately. Why because Allah azza wa jal wants to test you in terms of your Eman. The prophets of Allah are the most Beloved of Allah Krishna salatu salam. And Allah tells us in the Quran, the story of Noah and Ibrahim and Musa and I will messengers on Allah, where are you gonna send them? Where

00:13:55 --> 00:14:31

are you gonna start to send them? All of them had Allah willed, He could have given them immediate victory had Allah willed, could have given them instant assistance. But Allah subhanaw taala left some of them for years, if not decades, because Allah azza wa jal loves that you turn to him and make dua. Allah wants to see how you're going to respond. Allah azza wa jal wants to see the level of your Eman and that is when the Hadith in Bukhari of liberal Allah through the Allah one when he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the early Meccan period, when the Muslims were being tortured and persecuted. And he said O Messenger of Allah, will you not make dua for us? Would

00:14:31 --> 00:14:59

you not seek Allah's assistance? And the prophets on Allah What are you gonna send them was already making dua for them. But he wants to Doha to be answered immediately. The prophets on Allah Where are you gonna send them send to hubub or the Allah one will start Jiun but you are people who are hasty, everything that happens Allah decrease and Allah decrease it for a wisdom that he knows best. Subhanahu wa Tada. It is not our place to question Allah's wisdom nor to change what Allah has decrees because you can't

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

But I will role is to see how all Allah azza wa jal wants to see from us how we're going to respond by the dua that you make by the worship of Allah azza wa jal by the sadaqa that you give, what are those actions that you're going to take in order to make yourself better for you to come closer to Allah subhanaw taala. For you to strengthen your Eman for you to be a better Muslim, as Allah subhanaw taala that strengthens us upon this religion that Allah azza wa jal makes a steadfast that Allah azza wa jal shows His mercy and forgiveness and His blessings upon us and upon all of our brothers and sisters who are suffering. Ask Allah Azza did they lifts their oppression and Allah

00:15:34 --> 00:15:47

azza wa jal mix their affairs easy BarakAllahu li welcome flew for it was sunnah one of our annual yummy Mefi human to AGMA. Hakuna Cody ha That was the food Allah honey welcome. What did you mean a Muslim Unum included the minister Pharaoh in the whole of Orion.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:33

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam, ala Rasulillah were at early he was talking to the woman whether we sell them at the Sleeman Cathedral on my back from that which Allah subhanaw taala has given you the ability to do, as you heard just before the hotbar is to donate and to give generously to help those people who are in need of your financial assistance and how to donate to those organizations and those relief organizations that are on the ground, that can make a difference by Allah's permission, to help them and to aid them. And to do so with the intention of helping to help and bring relief to those people who are suffering. And from those things that you can do is to

00:16:33 --> 00:17:08

raise awareness. And for you yourself to learn about what's going on. The situation of the Middle East isn't something new. It's not something that just happened yesterday or last week or last month. It's been going on for decades. And you should know by now, the history of what's going on and the developments that are taking place. And if that's not something which you're aware of, then it's time now for you to take out some time and to learn about them. And also from that which you have the ability to do is to turn to Allah azza wa jal and make dua, to be sincere in that dua, to look for those times and places that Allah azza wa jal is more likely to respond to you do I like to

00:17:08 --> 00:17:43
