all praise and thanks belong to Allah the Most High we thank him and we seek His help and aid and we ask Him to forgive us
and protect us from the evil of ourselves and the sins that we commit. Indeed who serve Allah guides no one can lead us astray and who serve Allah leads us astray no one can guide and I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. Mohammed Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the words of religious matters are those that are invaded. Every religious innovation is a bit of a bit of eyes misguidance and everyone's guidance will be in hellfire.
The question for today's
do we trust Allah? subhanho? wa Taala?
Don't mean actually, do we trust a law?
and What place does this trust occupy in our lives?
How much of it do we have?
Does it influence our life, our choices, our behavior?
When you think about it, trust
is really the basis of religion.
You do not believe anything unless you trust the person who's telling you these things.
And you do not act upon something until you trust the person who's advising you to do something.
Meaning your beliefs, your set of beliefs. And what you do with your life is all based on trust and specifically religion
is based on trust.
So when you are making the praying to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, do you trust that he's listening to you?
Do you trust that he will answer your
Do you trust that when you ask him that he will give you what is best for you?
Which is not always what you're asking for?
Do you trust him when he gives and when he denies?
Do you trust him when he gives you a gift and when he delays?
Do you trust his commands?
That when he tells you to do something, this is in fact the best thing that you can do with your life with your time
With your family with your wealth,
do you trust his promises?
Do you trust a loss of Hannah? Who? What?
about what's gonna happen when you die?
Do you trust that the book that he revealed to you
is the best book that you could ever read? I want you to stop and think about it.
If you're gonna rank what books you want to read, based on the value and insight that they have in them, do you actually believe that the Quran is the very best book on this earth? Do you believe that the Prophet that Allah sent Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in fact, the best model, the best man that you could follow? Is there trust.
Look at our life. And we trust so many things.
We trust that the sun is gonna rise every single day. No single human being doubts this.
You trust the night will follow day and day will follow nights. You trust that after this winter spring will come. No one doubts this.
And after that summer will come no one doubts this.
We will go to the doctor and you trust the medicine that he gives you. That is going to work.
We put our trust in so many things, you have money in your pocket, in your bank account. And you trust that when you go to the store, you'll be able to buy something that will feed you there is trust there. But so panela we trust the sun, but not the creator of the sun.
The one who made it regular every day in its rise and it's setting, which was the money
that we have. But we don't trust the creator that made this money worth anything in a system that can accept it from you. Otherwise, it's just paper.
We trust the medicine,
but not the one who makes it work. Which was the words of people when they promise and the Bretton
Woods leaders powerful people,
people next to us, but we do not trust the one who created them. That when he speaks when he promises when he threatens in the Koran, that all of these things are truer than anything that we can hear.
Our lack of a mental weakness of emotion comes from a deficit in our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If you trust Him, your Eman or my email wouldn't be suffering as it is today. And especially these days, we need to talk more about trusting Allah, because there are a lot of doubts swirling about the existence of God.
The power of Allah.
A lot of doubts rolling about
whether we can especially as Muslims, facing all the pain that we're facing today, whether there will be a time in a day will will we escape all that pain
and regain and receive the promise of a loss of Hannah what to add again. So how do we increase
our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
will suggest a few steps.
The first thing
is that Allah in the book that he had revealed, tells you stories of past nations and people, things that have actually happened. And they keep repeating over and over whether when you read in the Koran or when you keep repeating the reading of the Quran, so that these lessons, sink deep into our mind and heart. take a simple example but a very profound one.
When Pharaoh was executing and eliminating the children open with him,
and a loss of Hannah who wa Taala they wanted to save Musa
alayhis salam and so his favor to him and to his family.
And Allah says Well hi Naomi Musa and
he says we have guided the mother of Moosa, subtle him feed him
in Cuba luminol, mousseline the soldiers of Pharaoh are inspecting every house
and they're coming close.
And Allah had put her heart It's not a revelation with an angel comes down and tells her what to do, but sometimes
When you're in pain and distress, and there is no other way of guidance, alabi, put what he wants you to do in your heart.
And he put that in her heart, something that is unusual.
Actually, you're afraid halki phillium
give him to the river, put him on water in a basket and let it flow. You have zero control over him. One mother could do that.
Because she could be thinking to herself, I'm throwing that boy to his death.
The soldiers could catch him and execute him. He could easily drown. How could How could a mother leave her infant
like that? But there Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to show her and show us something. So don't be afraid. And don't be sad. Don't be sad because we've left him and you can see him. Don't be afraid we'll go with the with what is going to happen to him in Nara de la ke we are going to bring him back to you. This is the element of trusting Allah subhanho wa Taala we will bring him back to you. And we'll make him a messenger on top of that. So just do this. Just trust Allah. Just give it to him. As to Pamela she did that.
And she suffered because of it was
her heart was empty. The only thing that you can think about is Musa alayhis salaam and what happened to him. But Allah subhanho wa Taala made it so that he would be relieved inside the court of Pharaoh. And there's no one else who could take care of him except his mother. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, follow that now he know me.
And we returned him back to his mother. So that should be happy and not sad, when he tanaman the light so that she would know what
the promise of Allah subhanaw taala is true.
Nova de la Ha. And when he promises you to do something, even though it is as incredible as the mother of Moosa went through, when he promises you that he's going to do something that Allah does it, so that she will know that the promise of Allah is true, but most people do not know that. Most people do not trust Allah subhanho wa Taala What do they trust, they trust what they can see what they feel, they trust their own selves.
We take you take every day you wake up, you take a second step, first step, second step, third step, you extend your hand and grab something. trusting your own power,
trusting your hand and trusting your feet. But you forget the fact that you are also should be trusting Allah gives you the power to use your hand and to use your feet. Who's making you a possibility?
Well, the same thing when you Sally serramonte flood with Bani Israel, and Pharaoh was behind him.
And when they were faced with this river again that they couldn't cross. And his followers said, inanimate inanimate.
Both parties saw each other and they said, We are going to be caught. We are overwhelmed, overpowered, we're going to be captured. And musalla is Allahu Allah. And here is the point.
This is what Allah Subhana Allah does with his prophets and their followers.
He will test them to a point that reaches the breaking point, but not too much, not really, but almost reaches the breaking point. Or is there that Allah wants to see his Prophet saying and affirming ordinario Allah, we still trust you. Despite all the odds, despite everything, we still trust you call a killer in BC. He says never, never will they catch us because I have a law with me and He will guide me how many of us today who when they actually follow what Allah wants from them, they really affirm like Musa alayhis salam, never the promise of Allah will always be true. It doesn't matter what you see, it doesn't matter what you hear, if you're on the path that takes you
to a lot of the promise of Allah is always true. And a lot for that for his Eman
for the amount of those who are with him if they did not have any man that the next thing would not be a possibility and think about it.
When you do not have that trust, the door does not open because that trust is the key to that door. And if you don't have that trust, you'll be knocking on the door and you're saying Why doesn't it open and allies telling you because you don't have the key
And the key for Musashi Salaam was that trust. And when he put that key in the door, Allah split the sea for him. And they could cross safely.
But not that not the non believers,
because he did not believe in Allah and he did not trust him. So the very thing, the very thing that saved Moosa destroyed their enemies.
And there's great Abraham, this great lesson in the loss of Hannah who will always be with you when you trust Him, your tawakkol on Allah, if you say I have to work on Allah, I have to work on him giving him giving me provisions and I have to work around him and saving me. Your tawakkol is built its foundation is trusting Allah subhana wa tada eliakim.
With the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was exactly the same.
When he was alone in McCain, his home and the non believers surrounded him and told him to leave.
Just exit your home.
How can you take this step outside of your house? Knowing that you have all men surrounding it, waiting for you to come out to kill you? How could you take that step? But if you believe in Allah, and you believe in his promises, Allah is not going to put you in the same test that he puts him into the law you send them or Moosa AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam is not going to put you in the same test. But this is to teach us.
So if you do not trust, how will you take that step outside? And if you don't take that step outside, how will you be saved? So Allah wants him to believe in Him alone. That's why a lot tests these prophets that way hackday, the state as
when they reach a point of desperation, and people around them believe these prophets have lied to us, because we're about to be exterminated and killed. That's when the time
of the victory of Allah that's when it comes. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam exits because he believes in Allah and they can see him anymore.
They can see him Jani Allah subhanho wa Taala physically suspend the laws of this universe, like with Ibrahim Allison and physically suspend them for the sake of the believers when they truly believe
and in His promise. And the same thing when he was in Medina, Sall, Allahu Allah, he was telling them and he was the target of his enemies locally and outside of Medina and he had a car guard to protect him. And Allah revealed to Allah who he assumed will come in and nurse and allow will protect you of all people.
He went out and he dismissed the guard and he said, I don't need you anymore. hematol Allahu alayhi wa sallam had no protection, no personal protection from that time onward. No matter where they went. No one was standing besides until a law he was set up to protect them because they said, Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect me. That's the trust of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you can see this, the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
alojamento holy allow man Daddy, because Sulu abacha who will be
the one tomassini Allah, you are algo de You are my supporter. I want to say you're the one who gives me victory. Because solotica hold, I protect myself from harm. And I gain benefits through you or be cohorted on a fight with you and because of you and with your assistance, and with your guidance, he trusted him Suppan, who was either alone, that's why he was alone, he will send them the model to all
so he asked yourself, do I really trust Allah subhana wa Taala when I read the Quran, do I really trust Allah when I make a do? Do I truly trust a lot when I say that? Hell no.
There is no power there is no mic except with Allah. Or do eyes my trust suspect and is it weak? We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to strengthen our email Nakula holy Hara was the Fulani when it comes to stuff you

Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam
the second step that will help us increase our trust in Allah subhana wa tada is to understand again from the Quran and Sunnah who Allah is.
And you should know and study and understand the names of Allah subhana wa tada and his attributes. Who is he?
And one of the names of Allah is
he's showing his existence.
True in his promises, the truest
who is gonna make a promise of those who make promises is Allah subhana wa tada
the truest and his threat.
Because without believing that Allah subhana wa Taala means that when he threatens in the Quran, we will not fear Allah
and without really believing the rewards of Allah that He promises in the Quran, we will not work towards Allah subhanho wa Taala
so his name is there's nothing truer than Allah.
And again, part of the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alone man.
You are the true.
And meeting up with you is the truth. Well, what are your promises the truth, what agenda
and Heaven is true. And Hellfire is true meaning everything that Allah subhanho wa Taala communicates is the truth. When you hear the name as semi,
I can hear what you're saying. But when Allah says he is SME,
if you trust him and what he says it means that he hears everything that you say that whispers and even the secrets inside your heart, that he sees everything that you're doing. And if you truly believe and you trust him, when he says this about himself, you'll start behaving differently
and your life will change.
When you feel the name of a happy or unhappy that he's the protector.
You will now believe that more than anyone else or anything else, allies, your protector. When you believe in the name of Allah Joaquin,
the one who oversees your affairs, more than yourself and your own planning and your own power. You'll trust Allah subhana wa tada and what he had planned.
When you hear the name and Hakeem the wise
meaning that everything that he does, he does with wisdom, unlike us.
Everything he decides he decides with wisdom,
when you will trust that whatever he gives you, his wisdom
and whatever he doesn't give you is what

He said to be really a Zeid
is for you to trust what is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa tada more than you trust what is in your own hands.
And for you to be hopeful of the rewards of a disaster that has visited you and what Allah had kept in store for you when you meet him more so than if that thing did not happen to you.
Ask yourself Subhana Allah do I trust what is in the hands of a lot more than I trust what is in my hands?
Because you think about it. A lot may give you Well, it's in your hand.
But there are so many things that can stop you from benefiting and getting and using that wealth.
If Allah did not destined that it's yours.
You could be living in a place you could be owning a car, you could be married to someone, you could be father of children. And you may think I have these, but you think about it. Do you really have them? Do you really have them because if you really have them, you can never lose them. Do you really have them? You don't have them.
It's Allah who has them.
So Allah could have destined that this $100 that you have in your pocket that will be stolen from you. It's not yours, you lose it, it's not yours. But something else that Allah has destiny is yours and is not yet in your pocket, that will be yours. So if Allah had promised something, he says, if you trust it, more than you trust, what you will you have in your own hands, this is a
this is someone whose heart is close to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And that's the next part. When you were visited by a tragedy,
saying you're not stopping there and lamenting, and being sad because of the bad things that have happened to you. He says, No, you're looking at the hereafter. And this thing that will reward there for you because you've lost it, and something better for you because you have lost it. He said, you're more hopeful because of that.
That's what you're watching. And that's what you're hoping for. You're more hopeful there. And you like that more than the very thing that you lost.
Because you trust to
Allah subhanho wa Taala and it's a last decision and it's a loss of wisdom that this thing should go away.
And as you should get something better when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So knowing who Allah is, and being close to him, will teach you to trust him subhanho wa Taala.
The third thing that will help you do that is to actually walk the path of Eman
because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Lisa,
very general, and a beautiful law.
They sell a broken wire.
News of something is not like witnessing this particular thing.
news about something is not like witnessing that particular thing for yourself. So we can say here, and we can discuss in theory, trusting Allah subhana wa Tada. And we can go through these stories and they are beautiful stories. But until you apply it, you're not going to taste it until you actually witness and you're in a situation that needs you to trust Allah. And then you trust Allah. And you see the beautiful consequences that follow? You really do not know what trusting Allah subhanho wa Taala is, so you have to walk that path. And sometimes we may wonder, why is it that Allah subhanho wa Taala tests us? Why are we visited by tragedy sometimes, because this tragedy does
two things, among other things, does two important things relevant to what we're talking about today. The first one is that it tests your
tests your trust,
shows you how much you have.
Just like any difficult situation will show you how much ingenuity you have, how much skill you have. That difficult situation will show you how much a man and how much trust you have. And if you walk that path of a man it will develop that trust.
Why does Allah subhana wa tada tests this prophet so much.
And their followers so much, because Allah wants to cleanse their heart from any type of trust, and except on a law
if you're living a comfortable life and easy life and trusting everything around you, and everyone around you, and your heart is everywhere,
but when it's time
when it's difficult
when it's tragic.
And you begin to see that so and so around you can't help you anymore. And this other person that you used to rely on cannot assist you anymore. And no other human being can help you. Your heart turns completely to Allah and no one else but Allah
a lot purifies it
and elevates your Eman and elevates your trust
and brings you closest to him and that's the closest that you can come to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's the benefit of tragedy.
When you go through it, we don't ask a lot to put us in difficulty. But when it comes again, we understand that it's a loss of wisdom that brought this and if there's something beautiful behind it.
So if you trust a loss of Hannah, who gets out of the tragedy could turns into an AMA that brings you closer to Allah takes away your sins and strengthens your Eman and makes you truly trust a lot more than anyone or anything else.
So when we're talking about the trust of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's not just theory.
walk the path of a man.
Read the book of Allah subhana wa tada follow His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the next time that you're making the Ask yourself, do I trust that he's listening and will answer me when you giving up something for the sake of Allah because it's haram should not be done. Ask yourself do I trust that he will compensate me and it's accordance in accordance with your trust, how much of it that you have that Allah subhana wa Taala will come to your aid and he will help you to ask Allah subhana wa dallah to firmly plant in our hearts, that we trust him more than anything else, and more than anyone else, the Honorable alameen increase this trust in our heart. But let me make us trust
you more than anyone else and more than anything else, and increase our coal and increase our email, increase our love for your hammer. I mean, at least increase our love for your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam making me mean the model and the inspiration for our lives and for the lives of our children and our families and the rest of the Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he Allah we asked you to bring ease to our life's Yella and ease to the Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, chase away their pain chase away their trouble.
Make us all make us have all of those who trust you and make us all of those who walk the path of Emmanuel Allah mean and help us all and save us all from ourselves and from our our enemies. yahama Rahim
Allah we ask that you forgive all of our sins and the sins of all of the Muslims and protect us from all harms and the rest of the Muslims and to give us victory in this life and then the next and for all the Muslims your hammer Rahim Allah Martina for dunya hacer una waffleh Hassan joaquina
