00:00:03--> 00:00:04

Alhamdulillah

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

Alhamdulillah

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

I can see what I can I

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

can I

00:00:19--> 00:00:29

can I be Almaty he was? He was and he were in army. We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala and glorifying him

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

a phrase that is worthy of Him

00:00:34--> 00:00:39

a phrase that is worthy of how much he has given us, and continues to give us.

00:00:40--> 00:00:44

We praise him subhanho wa Taala, for the name of Ramadan

00:00:45--> 00:00:49

for the opportunity to worship Him to come close to him.

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

And to realize at least for the month of Ramadan, what it means to come close to Allah, distaste, that proximity to him, and the sweetness of email.

00:01:02--> 00:01:06

We thank him for the joy and happiness that he brings us with.

00:01:08--> 00:01:20

In fact, we thank him for the joy and happiness that he brought us throughout our life and will continue to bring us because we know that whatever joy and comfort comes, it comes from a loss of Hannah hordes.

00:01:24--> 00:01:27

And that should push us in sha Allah to remember

00:01:28--> 00:01:33

that Allah is the giver, and bestower of all the things in our lives

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

is the giver

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

of all the near misses that we have.

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

And we are to expect from him Subhanahu, WA tada all the things to come.

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

And this is

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

part of our beliefs.

00:01:53--> 00:02:00

And also part of the way that we should live, it's part of our a bird, we may not know about it,

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

I bet that we may think

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

for a lot of us what the body does.

00:02:09--> 00:02:13

But what is more important, and fundamental type of a bird is

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

the heart.

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

And part of the bird of the heart is personal

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

is that you believe the best about a law and that you expect the best from Allah subhanho wa Taala This is what is called personal Bundy Billa

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

that's what the believer is like.

00:02:38--> 00:02:53

He always expects the best from his Lord and creator and thinks the best of his Lord and his creator. And that differentiates between those who are close to those who are not, and those who believe in Allah and those who don't.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

You may ask yourself, what is this based on?

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

Why should I expect only the best from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

He said, because if you know Allah, you only come to expect the best from him.

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

If you know that a lie is

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

the most generous,

00:03:16--> 00:03:21

then you know that whenever you ask him or if you need something from him, would he give it or not?

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

He will give it to Panama because he's the most generous.

00:03:27--> 00:03:57

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, and happy that Allah subhanho wa Taala said that all humanity if your first and last, meaning everybody who had lived on this earth from its beginning to its end, in addition to the gin, or to stand in one playing field and asked me, everybody asked him for his wish, if I were to give each one of you what he desires and she desires, that is not going to decrease anything that I have in my treasuries and with me.

00:03:59--> 00:04:10

Think about it, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most generous. And if you know him to be generous, you will ask him before you ask anyone, and you would expect that he will answer you.

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

If you know that Allah is the most versatile.

00:04:17--> 00:04:28

If you're in pain or you're suffering, or you need to be saved from your weakness or your sin, you know that you can always turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that Allah will forgive you.

00:04:31--> 00:04:47

He was an uncertain daddy's. There are lots of hands on what Allah said, child of Adam, were you to come to me with your spell of sense. But you come to me as to cheating no partners with me. What will he do?

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

I will forgive you and I do not care about what you bring. As long as you come to me believing that I'm one word

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

keeping me alone. Eventually, sooner or later, I will forgive all of this and put you in heaven.

00:05:09--> 00:05:22

If you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who comes to your rescue and listens to you. If you know that Allah subhana wa Taala is the most powerful, if you know that Allah is the wise

00:05:24--> 00:06:09

and he only wishes the best for his servants and slaves, then you'll understand that whatever Allah sends your way, Allah subhanho wa Taala is sending for a reason. And there are lots of Hana what Allah which is the best for you, not the worst. And the believer who lives like that lives a life, full of happiness, not exaggerating. It's not a fantasy. It's something that can be accomplished. But it's a battle that begins in the heart. Because if you live every day thinking that whatever comes my way, is the best from Allah subhana wa tada you live happy, that whatever life gives me he gives me for a reason. And also whatever Allah takes away from me, he takes away for a reason. And

00:06:09--> 00:06:19

he does the best for me either way, you'll never worry, you'll never be sad. You always trust Allah subhana wa tada more than you trust yourself.

00:06:22--> 00:06:33

Those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala do not possess that belief, or it's very weak in their hearts. And a lot tells us about that in the Quran tells us that they do not believe

00:06:35--> 00:06:49

that Allah knows everything. Do not believe that Allah hears them what and what they are saying and doing. Do not believe that Allah will resurrect them because they like that understanding and concept of justice. Allah will resurrect him to reward the righteous,

00:06:50--> 00:07:04

punish, the sooner they lack that understanding. And because they lacked that understanding, their worship was faulty. And because their worship that was faulty, their relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala was faulty. The believer on the other hand,

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

who believes that are lies the best

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

and expect only the best from his Lord will love, love,

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

love and personal one,

00:07:19--> 00:07:47

are connected. And they were essentially part of each other. So the one who loves Allah will expect the best from him. And those who expects the best from Allah will love him. And the one who has these two will wish to serve him subhanho wa Taala not because somebody told him to, not because somebody forced him out of his own heart. He wants to serve Allah, He wants to be close to him. This is what the worship of Allah

00:07:48--> 00:07:57

because you want to be close to a lot because you enjoy being close to him. You worship Allah. That's what a bad is. And they say that there is a difference between a bad

00:07:58--> 00:08:15

idea, the person who worships a lot of love. And the person who worships a lot because he's compelled. There's a difference between the two, the one who does it, and does not need any motivation, outside motivation. The other one needs to always be reminded and control to do it.

00:08:17--> 00:08:31

We love Allah subhanho wa Taala for the great things that he had given us. And we love Allah subhana wa tada because we always expect the best from him. And we need to keep that in mind, especially in certain circumstances. And

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

first, whenever you're making

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:08:41--> 00:09:05

he says when you're making dua, when you're raising your hand, pray to Allah, and you're certain of the answer certain of the answer, I want you to first of all, just think about that posture that you make when you're making. What is this mean? When you're raising your hand? You're petitioning, you're asking, you're begging Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, my hands are empty.

00:09:06--> 00:09:16

And the Prophet said that when you do this, and your heart is in it, and you make the appropriate way, you have to be certain that Allah subhana wa Taala will answer you.

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

Somebody may say,

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

but I made

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

that it didn't happen.

00:09:24--> 00:09:38

It say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not say be certain that that particular exact thing you ask for a loan, we give it to you. He said, be sure that Allah is first listening.

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

And be sure that alive, he listens to you. He's gonna give you something as far as that particular thing that you asked for. It may be good for you. Or maybe not like someone going to the doctor and he says, Doctor, I have this pain in my body. Give me this medicine.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

The doctor says that is not good for you.

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

There's a veteran medicine said that no, this medicine doctor, that's gonna kill you this other man, he says this medicine

00:10:07--> 00:10:12

and the doctor is not listening to you it does not mean the doctor does not love you or does not want the best for you.

00:10:14--> 00:10:25

It means that he wants the best for you is that at times we don't know what is best for us. So when you're raising your hand and you're saying, Give me this or protect me from that have certainty that allies listening

00:10:27--> 00:10:35

have certainty that Allah will accept and have certainty that either is gonna give you that thing that you want, or something a lot better.

00:10:36--> 00:10:47

Or that Allah will take a harm away from you didn't even think about that would have destroyed use of Pamela. So when you're raising your hand and asking, never doubted allies, listening to you

00:10:49--> 00:10:56

the other time that you should keep this in mind. And whenever you are encountering any difficulty and hardship in your life.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

always believe this is part of your

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

insight

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

that is going to bring relief to

00:11:10--> 00:11:13

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

woman, Angela Habib

00:11:23--> 00:11:27

he says if a person is touched by hardship, specifically of poverty,

00:11:28--> 00:11:35

and he turns to people to fill that need, his said his need is not going to be thrilled and satisfied with me.

00:11:37--> 00:11:47

But if he turns to Allah, to fill that need, alive soon, they're gonna give him and provide for him a provision that's gonna come sooner or later.

00:11:48--> 00:12:03

If you're turning to people, it is gonna leave you to what you've turned to, and your need is not going to be filled. If you're turning to Allah, you're in hardship, you're in pain you're in need, who do I turn to? so and so? Allah azza wa jal

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

as he turned to him, and you'll satisfy your needs.

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

So hey, Muslim, there's an interesting story about

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

one of the scenes and majors,

00:12:18--> 00:12:33

when he felt that he's gonna die. He turns to his son, Abdullah, Abdullah, I have a lot of debt. I don't know if my money is gonna satisfied all of this debt. So if you are short, stay, yeah, more or less.

00:12:34--> 00:12:34

The

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

thing is that

00:12:41--> 00:12:46

that moment, I didn't understand what he meant by the molar, you're talking about.

00:12:50--> 00:12:53

you're short on money. He's a Yala.

00:12:56--> 00:12:56

He says,

00:12:58--> 00:13:03

After his death, whenever I was trying to pay his debt, I would say this

00:13:08--> 00:13:09

would happen. He said,

00:13:11--> 00:13:15

this is if you trust a loss of data will not disappoint you.

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

The problem is that we don't trust a lot.

00:13:19--> 00:13:49

We don't have a lot of conviction in him. But you think to yourself realize this most generous, most powerful, Most Merciful most time looking down at you seeing you in pain. And you see Allah helped me the only one who can help me he will look at you and He will punish you after this. Don't you think that you're gonna give you what you want. Just have conviction that Allah Subhana Allah loves you and wants the best for you expect the best from him and allow ourselves to give it to you. He said so a lot of us.

00:13:52--> 00:14:08

Allah said I will be as my slave thinks of me if he thinks the best. I will give him the best. If he thinks the worst, he will receive the worst. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to me because of those who always think the best of Allah subhana wa tada and expect the best from him. only had the worst

00:14:22--> 00:14:22

hamdu Lillah

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

wa salatu wa Sallim wa sallim

00:14:28--> 00:14:37

ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. It is important also when someone is approaching death or on his or her deathbed, that they always keep the best of thoughts about the loss of

00:14:40--> 00:14:44

a loved one. Do not die except thinking the best of your moods.

00:14:46--> 00:14:57

So if you are approaching that or you know someone, always remind them that Allah is merciful, always reminding that always forgiving, always reminding that they are coming to a person or to someone

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

to take care of

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

More than their parents will take care of them. And think about that because the person who's approaching that stage, there's little that they can do. So they should not despair, never despair of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But we have also dimensioned something that is very important. It does not mean that we should sin and do whatever we like. And then think that Allah subhana wa Taala is gonna forgive us. That is not the right belief about Allah Subhana Allah because Allah is also just an Allah condemns that type of belief. Because he says, about some people that he disliked, he says ye

00:15:34--> 00:15:38

Allah Subhana, Allah says, Luna, Luna, a lot

00:15:39--> 00:15:49

of people, but he entrusted them to keep the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, but they took bribes, and they took bribes, took the union instead, and they ignored and neglected the book of Allah.

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

So we will be forgiven.

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

Though gel invalidates that type of thinking.

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

It is said that one who thinks the rest of the last panel

00:16:06--> 00:16:43

will also behave correctly. And no one who thinks that worse of Allah subhanho wa Taala would behave in incorrect manners and waste. So if you believe Allah subhana wa Taala to be the best, your actions have to match it. Otherwise, you'll be like someone who goes to the exam without studying, hoping that he will eat it. And he's thinking, I am thinking the best of the professor, I'm thinking the best of the exam. This is foolish thinking. Allah subhana wa tada We ask Allah to forgive us and to protect us from this, you may arrive if you're such a person, you may arrive, the day of judgment and you see a lie.

00:16:44--> 00:17:25

And he says you did not know who I was, where my messenger was, and that this does not work for me. So we have to obey Allah subhana wa Tada. And when you obey Allah, whenever you worship Allah subhana wa tada had that strong belief in your heart that brought you to the mystic that allow you to fast that allow you to read the Koran because Allah is bringing you closer to him. Subhana Allah, Allah wants to select you, and allow us to be merciful with you and allow us to accept from you, Allah wants to put you in heaven. This should motivate you to do more, not less. Not arrogance in our heart and complacency to find this is enough, know that we do more because I want to be close to

00:17:25--> 00:17:41

him. So panel data, there's no love that you can taste better than the last panel with no proximity, no protection, no mercy, no comfort, better than the ones that are last panel data that is going to give you and the last thing that I'm going to say Bismillah have always hope for

00:17:43--> 00:18:02

you're looking at all the things the bad things that are happening, the terrible, terrible things that are happening. The name of Islam has been solid Muslims panelized some places they have to hide they have to lower their head Subhanallah we believe in the promise of Allah and believe in the province of Allah you it was and he said he was

00:18:07--> 00:18:46

the leader when he says this thing is going to reach the night and day wherever the night that they have reached this thing this religion is going to reach and we can see some fulfillment of that panel in front of our eyes today. Just right here and we'll continue to see more of that soon no matter what happens even it's very cloudy very gloomy. Remember, if I lost it so profits a lot he was upset so the sun's gonna come out. And Allah subhana wa tada will fulfill his promise. So we asked to your immediate, immediate planted our hearts that we always seek the best of you and expect always the best of you are planting our hearts Your love, and the love of your Prophet sallallahu

00:18:47--> 00:19:15

alayhi wa sallam he planted in our hearts, mercy towards others and kindness towards others and conviction and certainty in your promises Europe and Ireland meet the Allah we ask you that you accept all the good things that we have done in Ramadan. And forgive us all the sins that we have done in Ramadan. Allah we ask you that you preserve us until the next roll Banjara extend our life, extend our protect us and protect our families, protect our children, the righteous need

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

to protect

00:19:20--> 00:19:24

them upon the truth. And you take these divisions and arguments from patina on the island.

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

Da da da

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

da da

00:19:47--> 00:19:47

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

da is Naveen. And

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

I extend my congratulations to all of you

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Is this right for you?

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

All the good from you
