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

in the aftermath of the Battle of Hood, Allah azza wa jal revealed

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam

00:01:11--> 00:01:20

and to the believers. What are the you know, Allah has no one Tamala Ilona income, meaning

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

do not be weak, and do not be sad.

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

And you are higher if you are believers.

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

And this is of course, after the believers were met

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

with events and news

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


00:01:48--> 00:01:54

their bodies were hurt. They were wounded, that loved ones were killed.

00:01:55--> 00:02:00

And Rasul Allah, He said, Allah Allah who earlier was seldom himself was hurt.

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

So they experienced

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

the prospect in the possibility of losing him altogether.

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

And they had to deal with the loss at hand.

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

So there was a weakness that was starting to creep

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

into their body and into their soul.

00:02:26--> 00:02:31

So Allah subhanho wa Taala he wanted to remind them

00:02:33--> 00:02:38

that as long as they have Iman and believe in the promises of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:39--> 00:02:45

they're not supposed to have both whether it is one which is weakness in body

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

or who isn't, which is weakness and spirit that sadness.

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

So do not

00:02:56--> 00:02:57


00:02:59--> 00:03:04

or believe that this setback of yours is a real setback.

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

Because what saves you from all of this?

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

Is your belief in Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:03:17--> 00:03:22

As Allah azza wa jal says, find no home yet Allah Munna came to Allah moon,

00:03:23--> 00:03:39

us talking about their enemy and he says they suffer as you suffer and they hurt as you hurt and they get pain as you get pain. It's not unique to you, that you would experience this loss they also have experienced it

00:03:40--> 00:04:25

but Allah then add something that is unique to those who have Iman What are Jun I mean Allah He may Allah your June, you hope and you expect from Allah what they do not hope and expect that this is the fuel. This is the belief that when you have it, then the pain of the dunya diminishes and the challenges of the dunya can be overcome. Because what you have with you is something that nobody else has. And that is a belief in the Promise of Allah subhanho wa taala. So indeed, in fact that if you have Iman in the Promise of Allah, no matter what your problem is a small problem or a big problem. A very personal problem that no one knows about except you something that is happening in

00:04:25--> 00:04:48

your head and in your heart or a family problem that had consumed all of you. It could be an illness, it could be discord, it could be a fight. Or it could be something that is so big that has engulfed the OMA whatever it is that you are facing if you have Eman and Allah subhanho wa Taala then no problem is too big.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

And no problem is too serious and no problem can destroy you and devastate you because you have with you and aid a help that comes from Allah.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

subhanho wa Taala so if you believe in His promise Kitab Allah Who lovely banana Oh Rosalie Allah has decreed and indeed has written that I and my messengers will be victorious that is in the Quran, if you believe in that nothing that happens on earth will convince you otherwise. Right? If you believe in that idea, nothing that you see with your eyes will convince you otherwise. Because you see that Allah Who knows the future knows what's going to happen. And what I see is limited by what I can see, but Allah knows what lies beyond perception.

00:05:42--> 00:05:50

What is beyond the present? So if Allah azza wa jal wants it to happen, it happens. If you believe

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

in the saying of the messenger, Allah is Salatu was Salam. Lai Aquila, Hooghly, Momineen cava and Illa Khanna Euro Asus Allah does not decree anything for a believer except that it is good for him.

00:06:07--> 00:06:15

Allah does not decree anything for a believer except that it is good for him, then you will not be worried about the next day.

00:06:17--> 00:06:35

You'll only be worried about whether you have Iman or not. That's the thing that you will work on. But whatever comes to you tomorrow and the day after and the day after, if it is a decree from Allah and everything, by the way is a decree from Allah. Then you say the thing must be good for me.

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

Because you face it with iman.

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

And when you face it with the man nothing can stand in your way.

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

A lot and you know McPhee Yun mon Sol,

00:06:50--> 00:07:14

the believer Rizzy receives sufficiency from Allah subhanho wa Taala and victory in accordance to his Iman. So no one can stand in his way, not the shaytaan not the helpers of the Shavon not a loss, not again, nothing can stand in his way. And Allah azza wa jal gives him what goes beyond the tolerance of other people.

00:07:16--> 00:07:19

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam

00:07:21--> 00:07:54

told us Lacan live to Villa he will tell you half who I had, he said, I was made to fear. For Allah sake, I was terrorized for Allah sake and no one else was being terrorized. At the very beginning of Islam, live to Villa I was being terrorized. I want you to understand what that means to be terrorized to fear for your life, to fear for your family, to fear for your income, to feed for your reputation.

00:07:55--> 00:08:02

real harm is going to come your way and you and he he is Salatu was Salam he says I was almost alone them

00:08:04--> 00:08:16

live to Fila well now you have a had Walcott od to Villa he will mail you the ahead and I was harmed for Allah sake and no one else was being harmed. He was alone Alia Salatu was Salam.

00:08:18--> 00:08:37

wa Taala Yes, yella funa wama Lea Valley villa in Maya Kula who do Capitan Elana you worry he if to be done. He says and I have spent 30 days and I end Bilal have nothing to eat except what Bilal can hide under his armpit.

00:08:38--> 00:08:41

30 days of starvation

00:08:43--> 00:09:13

30 days of sneaking food to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and I want you to understand how much food can you store under an armpit. That's the only thing that you could consume. For a day for 243 until such an opportunity you can sneak more food. And yet Alayhi Salatu was Salam did not waver did not falter, did not quit, did not compromise. How could you have such patience?

00:09:15--> 00:09:23

And you could stop it. You could stop it. You could say I quit this Dower. I renounce Iman, take me back in and they'll take you back in.

00:09:25--> 00:09:32

They'll embrace you. You could end it if you wish. But you say no. And you starve.

00:09:33--> 00:09:37

And when they laid siege to the new Hashem.

00:09:40--> 00:09:41

For three years

00:09:42--> 00:09:49

they would not sell them the disbelievers in Mecca against the Muslims early on, they would not sell anything to them

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

or buy anything to them from them.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

And if somebody were to come from outside Mecca to sell they will receive Him and say we will buy everything you have

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

Don't sell anything to them. They want it to destroy them, to decimate them

00:10:08--> 00:10:28

to starve them to death. And they said we could hear from those valleys ended homes, the cries of the children out of hunger. But no one would give them food side of Nabil will cause sort of the Allahu Anhu. He said on two incidents. He said I was walking once at night,

00:10:29--> 00:10:39

stumble upon something on the floor that was wet. So hungry. He said that was moist. I said, so hungry. I just took it and swallowed it. There's a still today. I don't know what that thing was.

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

I swallowed it.

00:10:43--> 00:10:57

He says On another occasion, he went he went to urinate. He says when he was urinating, he felt a sound on the ground. He dug a little bit, he found dry skin. So he said I took it, I washed it.

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

I burned it a bit.

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

And then I ate it for three days.

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

That's the food he had.

00:11:09--> 00:11:23

And did this to those people that Allah Zona saying, well, that's a human Wallah has no Don't be weak. With all of this, Don't be weak, with the killing of your relatives Don't be weak, because where are they going? Everybody has to die.

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

Everybody has to die.

00:11:29--> 00:11:35

The important thing is to die in ways that are pleasing to Allah azote. And so if you see death, death is going to happen

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

this way or that way.

00:11:40--> 00:11:48

But then if you are a believer, then then you are higher. Because you're going to be met by the angels of Allah azza wa jal, and that is the death that you want.

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

And don't be sad, because why would you be sad?

00:11:55--> 00:12:09

Look at me and look at what's happening to me. Look at what I've lost. Look at what they've lost. Look at how we're living. Look at all of these things. Why would you be sad? If you know that this is Allah's decree? And if you know that Allah sends you the best.

00:12:10--> 00:12:16

And he wants the best from you and you if you give Allah azza wa jal the best, Allah will always weep with you.

00:12:19--> 00:12:23

So Allah is reminding us that in the face of calamity in the face of hardship,

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

Don't be weak.

00:12:28--> 00:12:49

If you believe in the promise of Allah azza wa jal don't be sad if you believe in the promise of Allah zodat but pick up and be strong and seek Allah's assistance and fight whatever lies ahead of you. Fight it with Allah azza wa jal And if Allah is with you, Allah azza wa jal will give you the strength to overcome everything.

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

Oh look only had our stuff here Allah Leola confessed

00:13:12--> 00:13:22

hamdulillah Hamdan cathedra on the Ebola can fee he also li OSA Lima Allah Rasool e Muhammad wa ala early he was so happy he was salam, a MOBA had.

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

The I also teaches us something

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

incredibly important and something that is missing,

00:13:33--> 00:13:38

which is that as long as you have the Iman, you're higher.

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

And you have to feel

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

that Allah azza wa jal has honored you with being a believer

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

that you do not need anything or anyone else.

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

And that elevation

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

should be respected

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

and preserved.

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

It's not an elevation based on the fact that we are a chosen nation just like that genetically.

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

You're not genetically chosen, no one is genetically chosen, right?

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

It is your deeds that elevate you, not your DNA.

00:14:25--> 00:14:31

And if you forsake the message of Allah as Odin, you low lose that privilege. It goes to other people.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

Instead, they'll come and buy your Roku.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

Allah will replace you.

00:14:42--> 00:14:52

For Malaya, Kunal and Thurlow come then they will not be like you. If you think that we are privileged and we are God's people. If you forsake it you will be replaced.

00:14:55--> 00:14:58

So it's not based on DNA

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

And it's not based on geography

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

and it's not based on color and it's not based on lineage

00:15:08--> 00:15:12

because he SallAllahu ala you earlier was enemies spoke to Cora ish

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

and he spoke even all the way down to fault him I've been to Mohammed Patil the Allahu Allahu Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And he said, I will not be able to help you

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

with Allah azza wa jal

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

not only uncoming Allah He che

00:15:33--> 00:15:45

So, it is a privilege based on Iman and it is to believe that the message of Allah Azzawajal is the best message allele Merkmale will continue to come this is a perfect message.

00:15:47--> 00:15:55

And that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was the best guide and the best messenger of Allah azza wa jal inocle Allah Who Lupin Alvin

00:15:57--> 00:16:02

and to believe that the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the best guidance

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

and that the lifestyle of Islam is the best lifestyle.

00:16:11--> 00:16:17

We've experienced periods long periods, when we did not believe this.

00:16:18--> 00:16:25

And we experience also periods now where we do not believe this. Otherwise, explain how and why do we copy others?

00:16:29--> 00:16:35

If the way that the prophets of Allah Azza wa Sydenham lived is the best way, why do we copy other lifestyles?

00:16:36--> 00:16:59

If his guidance is the best guidance? Why do we copy other guidance? If the way that Allah has Zoda told us to live politically, economically and socially, how women should be how men should be how women should dress, how men should dress, how men should behave, how they should raise their children, how you organize your society, how you're inside the home, outside the home, how you comb your hair, how you cut your hair.

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

Who is your role model? When you look at the mirror, what do you look at your social media feed? Who is your model that you're following that you say, hey, he impresses me, I want to look like him. And then you start looking like him and acting like him who is that person?

00:17:17--> 00:17:36

Because if he's not someone who's imitating Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam, then you're not hired because of iman, because you don't believe enough for you to feel superior because of your image. You're copying from inferior models. So when it comes to celebrating holidays, and celebrating this and celebrating that, what are you celebrating?

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

And when you commit to copying this and copying that,

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

who are you copying?

00:17:47--> 00:18:03

So the events that we're witnessing in the world today should be one main motivation for us to come back to Allah zodion say that, the other models that we wanted to imitate the other people that told us that we should imitate them so that we would be civilized who would who would be accepted,

00:18:05--> 00:18:27

is false. And nothing is left for us except the book of Allah azza wa jal to tell us. This is it and this is right, unapologetically, this is right and the opposite is wrong. And you must feel it and you must have the dignity of feeling this will Allah healer is to well, you're solely he will illuminate you want dignity.

00:18:28--> 00:18:44

At the owner in the home, Allah is are you seeking dignity from them? Allah azza wa jal says you seeking dignity from them. That's why you compromise. If you want dignity, dignity is with Allah, and dignity is with the messenger and dignity is with the believers.

00:18:46--> 00:19:04

And if you believe the prologue has promised that eventually, he will prevail and his messengers will prevail, you will know that you have to be patient enough to prevail. And your situation right now, weakness, physical weakness or other types of weakness is not

00:19:06--> 00:19:52

enough for you to look down on Islam or to look down on yourself. But rather say, with the grace of Allah azza wa jal, I have something that others don't I have access to something that others don't. I have access to guidance that people do not know and do not understand. Your job then is to invite them to it not accept their invitation to what they have. What they have is nothing. And we're again, we're not saying this, simply based on pride, we're saying this based on experience, what they have is empty, it has nothing in it. It's well decorated, but there's nothing on the inside and what you have is the truth from Allah subhanho wa taala. So if you believe in La Ilaha illa Allah

00:19:52--> 00:20:00

that Allah Allah, Allah, Allah showing how you celebrate what Tala day and what you don't celebrate, let it show itself in how you dress.

00:20:02--> 00:20:04

And don't say it does not affect

00:20:06--> 00:20:17

ly attachable who fear but the Sherpa who says you do not look like somebody else until you our heart becomes like that other person when you imitate him externally

00:20:19--> 00:20:32

This is how he dresses so I want to dress like him it's a form of flattery and imitation. And soon the outside after resembling the outside the inside will be like the inside you will start thinking like they think

00:20:34--> 00:20:40

and we will have Muslims who look Muslim will have Muslim names, but the inside is not.

00:20:43--> 00:20:48

So Allah azza wa jal wants to teach you something. Allahu Allah.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

Allahu Allah wa agenne When they say don't

00:20:54--> 00:21:06

rise who built the idol? Said Allahu, Allahu, Allah is higher and greater. So everybody in the world is saying to their own idol, Lu such and such.

00:21:07--> 00:21:12

Then you have to say Allahu Allah wa jal know Allah is better than what you have.

00:21:13--> 00:21:34

And Allah is greater than what you have. And I don't need what you have, because I have enough. Listen to what I have. That is there is that the believers should have the love that they should have for Allah has no agenda and love for the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam when they captured one of the Sahaba and they're about to kill him.

00:21:36--> 00:22:04

And they asked him I assume Luca and no Mohammed and mckern. Okay, he says, Would you like that Muhammad Ali salatu salam would be in your place now. He had about to be killed. So they want to turn him against him would you want that Muhammad Allah is Salatu was Salam would be again, would be in your place at this moment. He said, I would not wish that I would be in my family, with my family happy with my family, and Mohammed would be where he is right now safe, and something would Frick his skin.

00:22:07--> 00:22:20

I would not wish that I'd be safe. And in exchange for that something would prick his skin, I'd rather die rather than something hurts him. Allah is Salatu was Salam, not death, but something that would inconvenience him.

00:22:21--> 00:22:28

That is the love for Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. And that is the love for Allah azza wa jal, and that is the love that people should have for the believers.

00:22:29--> 00:22:32

These are your brothers, and these are your sisters.

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

And what happens matters,

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

not only matters to them, but matters to us.

00:22:41--> 00:22:49

And there is a story that they used to tell us as children, I was eaten the day that the white bull was eaten.

00:22:51--> 00:22:55

And the story if you don't know it is a very simple story. Three bulls,

00:22:56--> 00:22:59

friends, one black, one red and one white.

00:23:00--> 00:23:06

And the lion wanted to eat them. But it was impossible to do this, but because they defended each other.

00:23:08--> 00:23:13

So he talked to the fox and he said to the fox find me a way for me to consume and eat them.

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

And they said I will do.

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

Then he went to the Black and Red Bulls. And they told them you know what, that white bull

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

he's, he's a liability.

00:23:28--> 00:23:34

He's very, very obvious because of his color. Hunters. And so can catch you easily because of his color, allow

00:23:36--> 00:23:42

the lions eat them, and you'll be safer and they said fine. So the lion attacked him and he ate him.

00:23:43--> 00:24:01

Then he goes after that he goes to the Black Bull. And he says the Red Bull is a liability, his color his this and his that allow the lion to consume them and you will be saved in the kingdom of a lion. So he said fine, and he let go of them. And he ate him.

00:24:02--> 00:24:07

And then finally, the lion comes to the Black Bull.

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

And the Black Bull says what happened to all the promises? What happened to this would happen to that he says we tricked you until you gave up the first and until you gave up the second and now it is your turn.

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

And then he said famously I was eaten on the day when the whiteboard was eaten.

00:24:27--> 00:24:32

I was defeated when I let go of him. Because once it starts it doesn't end.

00:24:33--> 00:24:59

So as a lot of Bill Alameen or hamara hai mean to because of those who understand the events taking place around them and have the wisdom to respond to them. We asked him about Bill Alameen to give us strength and wisdom against any afflictions we are facing personal or otherwise. We ask Allah for patience, we ask Allah for to give us the power of the we asked him subhanho wa Taala to

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

take away our pain take away our sadness give us strength in Iman. Well ask him Subhana wa data to make us of those who champion Him and His messenger Allah His Salatu was Salam, and champion, the believers will ask him subhanahu wa taala, to elevate us in the dunya and elevate us in the Athleta whereas him Subhan Allah to Allah to renew our iman, to make us of those who imitate and copy Muhammad Ali, his Salatu was Salam, not those who imitate and copy those who want to stray whereas Kim subhanho wa Taala to give victory to the oppressed on the face of this earth.
