Hola wash hadoo Allah ina in Allahu wa the hula Sharika one no Mohammed Abdullah who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam

00:00:12--> 00:00:28

Biofa in the higher al Hadith the Kitab Allah heeta Allah. Well, hey Earl had you had you, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were Sharon Ohmori Mahathir to her Wakulla, the 13th be the Wakulla be the atom Allah Allah. Allah, Allah to infinity

00:00:30--> 00:00:34

was sort of Allah is Allah Allahu Allah He was salam said

00:00:35--> 00:00:39

that Allah azza wa jal has said and are in the one near ibdv.

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

Allah said,

00:00:43--> 00:00:50

I am to my servant, as he believes about me, as he expects of me.

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

In this hadith,

00:00:54--> 00:00:59

we understand that Allah azza wa jal wants you to think the best of them.

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

And that part of you're a birder

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

is to believe the best about Allah

00:01:09--> 00:01:13

and to expect the best from him subhanho wa taala.

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

And that this is the foundation of your iman.

00:01:20--> 00:01:34

That is if you know Allah through His names and attributes or smell or subvert, Who is Allah, somebody comes to you and asks you, they don't know who God is. They're not Muslim, they ask you, Who is Allah?

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

What do you say?

00:01:37--> 00:01:53

You say, Allah is this and this and this, what is all of these things that you will say about him? You will say he's the old merciful. He is the one who's filled with mercy and acts with mercy and every mercy that we see comes from Him subhanho wa taala.

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

He's the one who's absolutely why so all of his actions reflect his wisdom.

00:02:01--> 00:02:10

He's the one who does not turn away anyone who asks him, so if you raise your hand, and you ask Allah azza wa jal he gives you.

00:02:12--> 00:02:23

He's the one who has all the power so he can do whatever he wants, and the most generous, so he gives without asking for anything in return. He gives,

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

even if you don't believe him, he gives.

00:02:28--> 00:02:33

He's the most generous if you know Allah has Odin with all of these attributes.

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

And you know, he that he does not go back on any promise that he makes.

00:02:40--> 00:02:50

Then you will have the best thoughts about him SubhanaHu wa to Anna and the best expectations from him and the best types of belief.

00:02:51--> 00:02:56

So for instance, one clear manifestation of that is when you make dua.

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

What do you believe about Allah when you make dua

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:03:06--> 00:03:16

order Allah Hawa and to move on I believe Jabba. Ask Allah, pray, make dua, while you're certain that he will answer you.

00:03:17--> 00:03:46

So when you raise your hands, and you say, Allah, give me this and this and this, and protect me from this and this and that, you must believe that Allah is listening. And you must believe that Allah is generous, and he can solve your problem. And you must believe that when you fold your hands and you take them back, that you come back with something great from Allah azza wa jal, even though the exact thing that you've asked for, or something better than what you've asked for,

00:03:48--> 00:04:05

or sort of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Lucha Yun Karim, Allah azza wa jal is generous, and he has this divine attribute of shyness. He is shy that when you extend your hands and ask him that he would send you back empty handed.

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

So what is your belief about Allah when you make dua?

00:04:13--> 00:04:21

The best thoughts about him subhanho wa taala. What are the thoughts that you have about Allah when you get into some trouble?

00:04:22--> 00:04:52

Or imagine that there could be trouble in the future? And you start to panic, and you start to be agitated, uncertain of how you will deal with it. What are your thoughts about Allah azza wa jal at that moment? A believer has the best types of thoughts and beliefs about him subhanho wa Taala so that he knows that if something bad happens, and he calls on Allah, Allah will be with him,

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

and that he will not be alone. And we are in today's age, we're terrified of being alone.

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

I don't know if you have that feeling or not. But we're terrified of being alone. And a lot of us feel alone even though there are a lot of people around us. But a believer knows that he and she are never alone.

00:05:15--> 00:05:42

They're always close to Allah azote. And so the first Hadith that we mentioned, and in dunya appdb, I am to my slave as he expects from me. Allah has then says after what an MA who either Dhyani what an MA who either the Quran, it says I am with him, when he makes dua, and I am with him when he remembers Me. That is as soon as you say, Yeah, Allah, Allah is with you.

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

And you're not alone.

00:05:46--> 00:05:58

And you don't have to face any problem alone. And as soon as you Say Subhan Allah Who Alhamdulillah Allah is very close to you. And Allah champions, those who are close to him.

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

And when you hear a hadith for instance,

00:06:04--> 00:06:14

where the prophets Allah, Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, We're alum and the Muslim or sub one Alpha Raja, I caught up one number and also the usara. And know that

00:06:16--> 00:06:20

patience is conjoined to success and victory.

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

And that relief is conjoined to adversity.

00:06:25--> 00:06:29

And that really is in conjoined to difficulty.

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

So it means that

00:06:33--> 00:06:50

if you want to be successful and victorious, if you want to triumph, if you want to succeed, if you want to win, whatever it is your struggle, the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam said, if you are patient, then married to this patience is success and victory.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

A promise.

00:06:53--> 00:07:00

So if you are the shaytaan comes and tells you that's too difficult and you cannot do that. What do you say?

00:07:02--> 00:07:19

He say success is with patience, and as long as I'm patient and promised a good outcome from Allah azza wa jal, and if the shaytaan comes to you and says, This present difficulty that you're in or the future difficulty that you will face, who will help you.

00:07:20--> 00:07:39

prices are rising, wars and conflict, diseases, all of that what will happen to me to my wife, to my spouse, to my children, to my grandchildren, the house, the car, this and that, who will help you with all of that? I'll follow Jamal curry, if difficulty descends. Relief is with it.

00:07:40--> 00:07:46

It's not far behind. But it requires those who seek it and ask Allah for it right?

00:07:47--> 00:07:59

Not just simply depend on science or depend on their own ability, but ask Allah azza wa jal because guess what, there is going to come a time when there's going to be a testing a science cannot solve

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

and only Allah azza wa jal can take away.

00:08:05--> 00:08:12

What a nomad OCD you saw, whenever you find difficulty Allah azza wa jal had attached to it is

00:08:13--> 00:08:31

so in Tila will Faraj waiting for relief, even though at this particular moment, you're in some kind of hardship, but waiting for relief and expecting the best from Allah is a bad is worship. And it's one of the best types of worship because it is about what you believe about Allah azza wa jal

00:08:33--> 00:09:08

and may ug will Mortara ADA who actually was to who else other than Allah azza wa jal answers the one who's in distress and removes hardship. No one except Allah azza wa jal, so investigate and question yourself, what is it that I believe about Allah azza wa jal? What is it that I expect of him? It's all tight to our iman. May Allah azza wa jal increase our iman and may Allah azza wa jal makers of those who have the best beliefs about him subhanho wa Taala are full of holy her the stuff in Allah Allah Allah confessed.

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Hamdan Kathira aunty Ybarra and fee he will also leave also Lima Allah rasool Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa, early he was so happy he was sitting them on the opposite end those who disbelieve in Allah zodion inferiors various forms of disbelief if they have a wrong belief and expectation, the worst beliefs and expectations about Allah azza wa jal so for instance, Allah azza wa jal says warmer Harkness summer our outdoor warmer but you know whom boldly though that he covered no living in a CAFO we did not create the heavens and the earth for no purpose.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

out of play ball tila.

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

That is the belief and the thoughts of those who disbelief, meaning they recognize

00:10:11--> 00:10:38

that there is a Creator, but they refuse to admit that it has a purpose or there is an end to it, that there is wisdom behind it. And if they were to know and believe that Allah azza wa jal is the most wise he would know that Allah does not act foolishly Subhana Hua to Allah, and that there is a purpose to this creation, a purpose for why you were put on this earth, a purpose for everything that you've gone through, and everything that had missed you

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

whether we know it or not.

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

There is the new su one ninja Helia.

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

Where Allah azza wa jal

00:10:50--> 00:10:54

speaks about it. In for instance, the Battle of

00:10:56--> 00:11:03

well thought if I don't met him and fusuma I don't know Nabila here you're all happy, Yvonne. Naja Haley Yeah. The order of the believers.

00:11:04--> 00:11:45

And they're also Allah talks about and then there's a group also who only worry about themselves, not about Allah, not about His Prophet, none about what has happened to Muslims only worry about themselves. Yeah, no, no, no. Billahi ladle Hucky what they're thinking what they believe about Allah is incorrect. It is EJ Haley, belief and expectation. What is that? The hula hula nominal embodiment che they say? Are we going to receive any of the promises that Allah made or any of the promises that Muhammad Sal Allah, Allah, Allah made, meaning they know about the promise that Islam will be victorious, that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam will be victorious, but when they see adversity,

00:11:45--> 00:12:03

they lose all hope. And they say, is any of this going to happen? They're very pessimistic, and they give up very quickly. And that goes back to their belief about Allah Azza origin and about His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and if they were to actually believe they would not act that way.

00:12:05--> 00:12:13

And Allah azza wa jal mentions the same thing. In surah, Amin in his app, and also in an Hoda. ubia

00:12:14--> 00:12:20

they had that type of mistrust in Allah and mistrust in His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam.

00:12:22--> 00:12:23

And on the Day of Judgment,

00:12:24--> 00:12:30

when Allah azza wa jal will ask the limbs to testify against some of the disbelievers.

00:12:32--> 00:12:40

They will ask well how did you do the hem Lima Shaheed to Elena they will ask their skin Why did you testify against us?

00:12:42--> 00:12:50

Allah azza wa jal will tell them where their skin will tell them hello I'm talkin Allahu Allah, the Anta Aquila shape. Allah made us speak.

00:12:53--> 00:13:02

And then they say we're not going to test the Tayrona Yashoda Alikum samro Comala of sobre como la julu Comala ComponentOne Allah Allah Allah mocha theobromine, welcome to tamanu

00:13:03--> 00:13:37

whether you convert Olivia Vernon tambura be come out of there come fossa to Minal ha city. So when they asked, he says, Why did you testify against us? They say hola me to speak. And then they say the skin is talking to them their limbs are talking to them is that you did not conceal yourselves from the fact that your limbs could testify against you. You didn't hide your sins from your eyes and ears and skin, you didn't think that Allah knew much about what you were doing. And that one, that belief about Allah is what destroyed you. And you may do among the losers.

00:13:38--> 00:13:50

That is that type of belief about Allah guided their action. And if you were to know, and if you were to actually believe the time that you are sinning that Allah is watching,

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

you wouldn't do it.

00:13:53--> 00:14:06

They say What's the proof is that if somebody comes in, you will stop doing it. Right? If there's a sin that you're doing, and you're alone, and you're trying to hide, if somebody comes in and is about to discover, you will cease, you'll stop.

00:14:08--> 00:14:36

Because you don't want to be embarrassed and discovered. If you were to actually believe that Allah is there and his watching, you wouldn't do it. And if you were to actually believe that your scent your skin is watching and will speak against you, and your eyes will speak against you and your ears will speak you would not do any of these things. And the disbelievers thought that Allah doesn't know so they could do whatever they want and that type of belief destroyed them.

00:14:38--> 00:14:44

So they're pessimistic. And the believer is an optimist.

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

The believer knows that Allah azza wa jal made promises.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

It's a despite the spread of corruption and falsehood on this earth, the dominance of falsehood on this earth. The ability that you cannot speak the truth today.

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

Are you still going to believe the promises of Allah that the Muslims will be uppermost despite our weakness?

00:15:08--> 00:15:24

What thoughts do you have about Allah? And what beliefs do you have? Despite all of this, you will say yes. I believe that Allah's promise is true. And do you believe that tomorrow for you will be good no matter what's going to happen?

00:15:25--> 00:15:28

If you know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:15:30--> 00:15:49

where he said, our job and the Umbrella Movement, how marvelous the affair of the believer is, everything that happens to them is good for them. If something a pleasant thing comes their way, they thank Allah and that is good for them. And if an unpleasant thing happens to them, they are patient and that is good for them.

00:15:50--> 00:16:01

So the prophets Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam here through this hadith is promising you something if you have Eman tomorrow, no matter what it brings, is good for you.

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

Do you believe this?

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

That tomorrow, no matter what it brings, is good for you. Because you are either thankful on your patient and he sits a lot he was salam In another Hadith wylam Enough sobre la Motta Kira, hyaluron cathedra and know that you being patient with the things that you hate, is a lot of good.

00:16:27--> 00:16:37

So if tomorrow, no matter what it brings, is good for you. Even if it brings the worst thing that you can imagine that is good for you, is this a reason for you to be optimist or not?

00:16:38--> 00:16:48

And to thank Allah to be close to him, and to seek his assistance. That is the believer, and that is how they're supposed to live.

00:16:49--> 00:17:27

And it's all based on knowing Allah azza wa jal. If you know Him, you will expect the best from him and he expect the best from Him, you will love him subhanho wa taala. So ask him Rajpal Allah mean to let us know at the teachers who he is truly, to let us know him through his names and attributes to make us of those who have the best thoughts and beliefs and expectations about Allah as origin. We asked him subhanho wa Taala to make us of the people of Jana, and our loved ones and Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam make us of those who believe in your promise era, Al Amin, makers of those who read your book and follow this interview a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
