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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:04--> 00:00:09

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu, salam, ala Rasulillah, who are early, he was so happy he or Malala

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

welcomed your brothers and sisters to part six of our series titled change of heart.

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

And I'm really hoping that you're finding it means of growth just as much as as I am. And each week

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

where we cover new information, we are covering also and we are

00:00:32--> 00:00:35

lumbering on our back a greater responsibility of application.

00:00:36--> 00:00:46

So remember, this is not just about acquisition of information, this is acquisition of application before anything else knowledge information, it has no worth.

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

It does not produce application, in fact, it can produce the opposite.

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

So that leads me to segue into the next part, which is the importance brothers and sisters of bringing with you some sort of

00:01:02--> 00:01:33

documentation, a notepad, a pen, a laptop, I mean, when you are watching something on YouTube, a recipe you want to learn how to make, you're taking notes, right? When we were in primary school, we came to school with with books and with pens, that's primary school. So you are you are arriving at information and definitions. And we're looking at the etymology of words. We're looking at ways of attaining these heights. So come with some sort of

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

apparatus with you that shows that you've come with seriousness.

00:01:38--> 00:01:53

And undoubtedly, merely being in these gatherings is a means of baraka and here on Azure. But you're limiting yourself and the full potential will not be there. So what you do with Keita as a predecessor is they say, they said chain up your knowledge by writing it down.

00:01:56--> 00:02:00

So let's make this a culture Inshallah, that we foster in our midst, like

00:02:03--> 00:02:09

Imam Al Bukhari narrates on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:02:11--> 00:02:25

he had to hold Jannetty Amin OMA T Zimbra whom Saba Hoonah alpha, Toby who would you who whom Eagle Eye 10 comma related battery, he said there will be a group from my ummah, who will enter Jannah

00:02:27--> 00:02:40

they are 70,000 in number, their faces will illuminate on the Day of Judgment, like the luminosity of the moon, when it is full, we ask Allah to make us amongst them.

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

Who are those 70,000

00:02:45--> 00:02:55

There is another Hadith which Muslim narrates on the authority of people who have best long Hadith but we want to take it sentence by sentence, you will understand who those 70k are.

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

He said earlier that Allah Yellowman

00:03:01--> 00:03:21

the nations were presented to me. So our beloved sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so the state of the people and the numbers on the Day of Judgment how they will be. How and when did he see this? Was it during the Islamic Mirage trip? Was it a dream that he saw? Allah knows best?

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

But he said the nations were presented to me. What did he say? He said,

00:03:27--> 00:03:36

Farah, I don't know we are now who Rohit a saw a prophet. And with him was a few people.

00:03:37--> 00:03:44

What are i to Nebia wha hoo Raju, Laura Julian and I saw a prophet with one or two people alongside of him.

00:03:45--> 00:03:50

Who Are are you doing a video of Malaysia now? And I saw prophets

00:03:51--> 00:04:24

and they were standing all by themselves. Imagine a prophet sent by Allah subhanaw taala to a community to give them Dawa aided with what he connected to the heavens communicating with angels. And not a single person accepts his dharma. He comes on the Day of Judgment with zero followers. And that is a form of condolences and support for those who give Dawa and they set up pages and they try their best and they find no one is really receiving their information. You're not better than the prophet who comes on the Day of Judgment with zero followers.

00:04:26--> 00:04:49

What happened next, he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the roofie Hi, Lisa Helene. When all of a sudden I saw a huge crowd from one end to another home. Oh naughty. And my assumption was that these were my own back. These are the Muslims for three Lucha MUSAWAH calm and it was said to me No, that's Prophet Musa and his people.

00:04:51--> 00:04:53

Many followers Allahu Akbar Musa

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

is rufiyaa li Salado Navin o Verteilung Dora L O for King Arthur then it was

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

To me, looking to the horizon, I looked into the horizon for either so I don't have him I saw a another huge gathering.

00:05:08--> 00:05:16

Then it was said to me on voted 11 or 14, look to the other horizon. I looked he said for either, so I'm gonna leave another huge gathering.

00:05:19--> 00:05:27

And it was said to me how the human, there is your Uma. Well, now who's about the elephant yet hold on the agenda, I mean, the regulatory savvy.

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

And amongst them

00:05:31--> 00:06:02

will be 70,000 Muslims, whom Allah will allow to enter Jannah without any prior accountability or suffering. Imagine imagine all of the difficulties you have read and heard about about the Day of Judgment, the horrors of that day, the length of that day, the sweating of the darkness of that day, the fear, they are spirit of it all. And they have almost a backdoor entrance into gender. No accountability, no hisab no suffering.

00:06:04--> 00:06:46

And so the immediate reaction is, and I'm sure you are probably thinking this is that these are very few in number. What is 70,000 Our Omar Al Hamdulillah as a number of baraka and Omar of blessings. And we are people who love to procreate. We love to conceive. We love to have big families, we love children, we love community. We are numbers Alhamdulillah not just quality, and we will be the greatest numbers and the greatest quality on the day of judgment by the testimony of our NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but still what is 70,000 Muslims? I mean that's all of Muslims since Adam alayhis salaam to the last man.

00:06:47--> 00:06:58

I mean, what is the population of Wales is anyone no Muslim population of Wales surround 49 50,000 people close to 70,000 have finished

00:07:01--> 00:07:11

what about India, India in itself Mashallah. The Muslim the Muslim is there around 200 million to Baraka, Rana and Masha Allah may Allah protect them and our sisters over there in India.

00:07:12--> 00:07:18

What is 70,000 so, this concerned our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in another narration I want to share with you

00:07:20--> 00:07:38

which atman the rates on the authority of Abu mana, he said, Son, Allahu Allahu wa sallam, my Lord promised me that he will allow 70,000 People from my ummah to enter Jannah without any prior suffering or punishment, and with every 1000 of them is another 70,000

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

who can do the maths

00:07:42--> 00:07:47

with every 1000 from the 70,000 is another 70,000 So how many

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

how much?

00:07:54--> 00:07:57

490,000 No, a lot more a

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

little bit less.

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

Yes, that's it. Yeah. 4,900,000

00:08:07--> 00:08:21

and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, was Allah Azza Hatha Yachty minha Tierra, be huzzah Virgil. And on top of that, Allah has promised me three handfuls from the handfuls of my Lord.

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

I don't want to say leave that to your imagination. Three scoops from the scoops of my Lord, we ask Allah to make us from that scoop. So Alma Radi Allahu Anhu. When he heard this, he said Allahu Akbar. He understood what this means. Allahu Akbar. So there is hope. There is a huge hope. 70,000 And so, the Sahaba they began to discuss who are these people? And meanwhile, our messenger SallAllahu Sallam went back into his home. He didn't tell them who the 70,000 are going to be? What are their characteristics?

00:09:02--> 00:09:22

For How about without Iike for halda, a nurse who feel that he can designate who don't agenda so the Sahara began to speak. Who are they? Some of those Sahaba said La La Humala, you know, so Hebrew rasool Allah, He said, Allah on amis, and maybe they are the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes sense.

00:09:23--> 00:09:38

Other Sahaba said, la la Humala, you know, what do you do if in Islam, you want them you should, it could be their history, perhaps they were those who were born Muslims. And so they never engaged in paganism, idolatry, and they mentioned other opinions.

00:09:39--> 00:09:45

Then the Prophet alayhi salatu salam came out he said to them, Melody tahona fee, what are you discussing?

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

They said, We're discussing the 70,000 You spoke about the Messenger of Allah and then now he tells them who they are. Listen carefully. This is an open opportunity for all of us. He said the hormone lady in La Jolla STARCO. They are

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

Those who do not request Autopia while I ACTA Woon they don't quote arise themselves, when I utter your own, they don't follow that omens, while out of be him yet our Cameroon and upon the Lord, they rely

00:10:19--> 00:10:28

these are the people whom Allah will give access to gender with no suffering, no pain and no questioning before the kings of high now what? Who are they? He said, now you're struggling.

00:10:30--> 00:10:43

They don't seek rakia rakia meaning the Islamic way of curing or the Islamic option of curing someone who is ill by reciting something from the Quran or authentic from the Sunnah. This is rokeya

00:10:46--> 00:10:55

He said they don't request a rock here. And by the way, this isn't to be understood that you should avoid rokeya neuroglia is a sunnah

00:10:57--> 00:11:04

and you should offer people that okay and you should do it okay are on someone on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa Silla when offered rakia he accepted it.

00:11:06--> 00:11:12

The hadith here is speaking about a very high category of people who do not want they don't want brothers.

00:11:13--> 00:11:21

It don't request it. They accept it if given if administered by they don't ask for it. Because their reliance upon Allah is so strong.

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

Who was the second category remind me Wallah?

00:11:27--> 00:11:57

The actor, woman they don't brand themselves, they don't call to rise themselves. cauterization is a traditional way of healing the sick by the permission of Allah, which involves using fire or heated items, and it causes excruciating amounts of pain. And so our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam disliked it. He disliked it. He said they don't engage in Aktiva cauterization. Number three, what was it Wala?

00:11:59--> 00:12:11

Yetta your own they don't follow omens. They don't follow negative omens, meaning they don't believe in luck. There's no such thing as a negative number, a bad number.

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

A bad sign.

00:12:16--> 00:12:32

They don't do that stuff. And the Arab is what they would do previously. It is the pagan custom where they would take a buck and they're about to engage in endeavor they don't know should I should I not so they released the boat. If it takes one direction. They see it as a good document if they go takes a different direction they see as a bad omen.

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

And that's baseless.

00:12:36--> 00:12:58

And we have in our horoscopes today, unfortunately, many equivalents. This is your sign. This is your good fortune, a sign of bad fortune. You walk under a ladder, be careful, I think you're gonna have a bad day. No, we don't do that stuff. They said, he said wala Yatta your own they don't follow bad omens. And then he said, Well, I allowed him to have a karoun and they place their trust in Allah.

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

So that is the summit. That is the summary of these people. They place their reliance upon Allah subhanaw taala they are people of telecoil upon the Lord.

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

We are confident in him.

00:13:16--> 00:13:20

And so it's a hobby by the name of Akasha Abdullah Hassan.

00:13:21--> 00:13:49

He stood up when he heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying this? And he said yeah rasool Allah Allah Allah Azza, wa Jalla, the Minho Messenger of Allah, please pray to Allah that He makes me one of these people. He said unto me, to whom you are one of them. So a second Sahabi stood up and he said, Me too messenger of Allah make dua that Allah makes me one of them and he said, The Akasha beat you to it. How can she beat you to it some opportunities in life, present themselves ones

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

rushing to do good deeds and not delay.

00:13:54--> 00:14:09

And this comes to show you that Alhamdulillah Had this been an open opportunity for the Sahaba maybe we would have missed out on some of the opportunity but the fact that he said no Kashia has beat you to it, that door was shut, so we have an opportunity to compete.

00:14:11--> 00:14:19

This is what we want to speak about Dear brothers and sisters at Dawa Kulu Allah Allah azza wa jal reliance upon Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:14:22--> 00:14:55

And this is one of the highest acts of worship that a Muslim can seek in his or her life. It is an action of the heart. Where a Muslim truly realizes that Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who is in control of the universe, so the heart settles and all pessimism and anxieties and illusion and paranoia and OCD is flushed out. Because you realized that Allah is the most mighty and upon him Reliance should be placed. What is our goal? If we want you to define it, I share with you

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

two definitions and maybe a third one NATO

00:15:01--> 00:15:14

The first definition was given by Imam Abdul Raja but Hanbali who said at our Kulu who said Boy it madam Albee Allah He Fisty July Bill masala he were definitely Midori or moody Dini when

00:15:16--> 00:15:29

he said the word called reliance upon Allah Jalla. Gerardo is a state of the heart when he truly relies upon Allah, in reaping the good at once,

00:15:30--> 00:15:34

or repelling evil. With respect to matters of deen and duniya

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

did you get that

00:15:38--> 00:15:43

there were called dependency or reliance upon Allah is the state of the heart.

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

whereby it truly relies upon its Lord,

00:15:49--> 00:15:57

when reaping the good at once, or repelling something evil, with respect to matters of religion,

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

and the dunya as well.

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

So it's a holistic understanding towercos

00:16:06--> 00:16:21

Any good that you want any evil you want to repel, pertaining to dunya or the hereafter. When you do that I use a Yarra. I trust that you will help me fulfill it. You are a muslim who has exercised our code. It's as simple as that.

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

A second definition was given by Al Janney in his book, Atari fact.

00:16:30--> 00:16:45

He said that a telecoil is a failure to remind Allah He won't show me Murphy agenus they were called, is a state of confidence in what Allah possesses.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

And it's when you give up hope, in the possessions of people

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

did you get this Malik

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

it is a state of what confidence

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

in what Allah possesses.

00:17:02--> 00:17:09

And it is a state of despair, giving up looking past, what people possess, this is delicate.

00:17:11--> 00:17:26

So a person who has exercised reliance upon Allah Tawakkol he has realized that the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala to you is greater than your mercy is for yourself. So you rely upon him.

00:17:28--> 00:17:39

And you realize that the that the fears that you have and the needs that you have, Allah is more aware of your needs than you are of yourself.

00:17:40--> 00:17:54

And Allah has the ability of fulfilling those needs of yours is greater than your ability is in fulfilling them. And Allah has a desire in wanting good for you is greater than your desire is.

00:17:57--> 00:18:22

Then what you want for yourself, you realize as a Muslim who has relied upon Allah, that sovereignty is his kingdom is his control, is his the decision is it his power, is it his when he melt wills matter to be it has to happen, no one can stand in the way. And when Allah says no, this will not happen, no one can make it happen. A Muslim who realizes all of this what happens?

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

His heart

00:18:26--> 00:18:37

settles at the Bay of Tawakkol. Not looking past its Lord, when wanting to fulfill a matter of dunya or a matter of the religion.

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

This is delicate.

00:18:42--> 00:19:02

When is Tawakkol most emphasized, we said that our code is something you should use around the clock and when seeking to fulfill all of your endeavors, Islamic and otherwise. However, there are certain circumstances when acting with DevaCurl is more emphasized

00:19:03--> 00:19:24

than other circumstances. What are they? I share with you six. The first of them is when you leave your home. When a person leaves his or her home. There is a greater emphasize upon you as a Muslim to rely upon Allah why you've left your house and you are exposed to a lot more harm now

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

to the harm of illness, harm of disease,

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

the harm of fitna temptation,

00:19:33--> 00:19:39

the harm of car accident or their likes theft, assault.

00:19:40--> 00:19:49

And so a Muslim is required when leaving his house, to place his trust upon Allah that where I am going and what I intend to fulfill Allah will help me

00:19:50--> 00:19:58

and that is why Buddha wouldn't rate on the authority of Ns that the messengers of Allah Azza wa sallam said either ha Raja Abdullah mean Beatty when a person leaves his house

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

And if he says the following haha Bismillah in the name of Allah Tala can to Allah. I had relied upon Allah La hawla wala Quwata illa biLlah there is no power and strength, accepting Allah. A person who says this when leaving his house, what is he to expect? He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it will be said to this person who did work with Vita. What will be that? What an A ha Allahu shaytaan it will be said to him, you have been guided and you shall be sufficed and you shall be protected. Then che fine he takes a different path.

00:20:41--> 00:20:56

Then one shaytan will say to another, que falaqa bureaux, Julian Kado hoodia Walker Yeah, our Koofi one share your plan will say to another, how can you misguide or harm a person who has been guided and sufficed and protected?

00:20:58--> 00:21:08

So when is dispersed circumstance, that a person is required to show extra telecoil? When is it your brother's when leaving your home? Number two,

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

when you are experiencing financial distress?

00:21:15--> 00:21:22

Many people backpedal when they're struggling financially, and they go down very shady paths and they know who they are.

00:21:23--> 00:21:37

But they have not exercised our code so Allah never fills their hands with goodness. They will tell you that firsthand. And that is why Imam will tell me he writes in his Jamia on the authority of NSD messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:21:38--> 00:21:52

Mandela to be Hiva cartoon and Zela had been nursing them to South Africa to whoever experiences poverty and then relies upon people to remove that poverty Allah who will not remove his poverty.

00:21:53--> 00:21:59

Woman Nigella to be HIPAA Katoomba, Angela habila. He for you she called Allah who will who will be this the Nigerian.

00:22:00--> 00:22:10

But whoever is touched with poverty but then relies upon Allah to remove it, then his provisions are making their way to him sooner or later, Allahu Akbar.

00:22:12--> 00:22:25

This is the second circumstance when telecoil is emphasized when looking or when experiencing financial hardship. Number three, when people turn away from you.

00:22:27--> 00:22:47

Maybe it's because of your ethics as a Muslim maybe because your good behavior, your appearance as a Muslim, your requirements in the workplace as a Muslim, whatever it may be, there are circumstances where people turn away from you. And that's disheartening. When you feel isolated, you feel abandoned, you feel dejected, it is not a good place to be.

00:22:49--> 00:23:11

During that circumstance, a Muslim is required to depend upon Allah to rely upon Allah and to sail through it. And that is why Allah said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for interval if they turn away from you, for could say has to be Allah, Allah is enough for me, La ilaha illa who none has the right to be worshipped but him

00:23:12--> 00:23:31

I lay he tell what can to upon him I have relied while Hawara Buddha Arjuna with him and he used to Lord of the mighty throw. A fourth circumstance when a person is required to exercise extra reliance upon Allah is when you choose to turn away from certain people in your life.

00:23:33--> 00:24:09

Maybe there are certain individuals whether they're friends or family, and you know that they are toxic to your relationship with Allah, the slowing you down, you are not where you want to be Islamically maybe because of them or partly because of them. But breaking away from them is challenging for one reason or another. When you feel that place your reliance upon Allah Jelena jello, and that's why Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah who said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for ideal but I knew whom medalla cannot Allah, turn away from them and rely upon Allah, turn away from them, rely upon Allah.

00:24:12--> 00:24:14

The fifth circumstance,

00:24:15--> 00:24:26

when a person is required to show added Tawakkol upon his node is when you are combating a sin. There is a certain desire that you keep falling prey to it comes time and time again.

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

Please your toe Akula con Allah to help you overcome it.

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

Sita welcome is not just about making money, people associate the lacuna with money. We only discussed our code when you want to buy a house that's not a mortgage or not an interest. Right? They just rely upon your Lord. It's always associated with money. No, the highest forms of Tawakkol is when you rely upon Allah to conduct shape on and to overcome sin and to become a better Muslim. That's the best manifestation of DevaCurl

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

Right. If there is something that's pulling you back time and time again behind closed doors, remember, rely upon Allah.

00:25:09--> 00:25:15

He will help us and that's why Allah said in the Quran in there who lay Salah who Sultan Al Madina,

00:25:16--> 00:25:34

Bohemia Dawa Kallu shaytaan has no authority over those who believe and upon the Lord, they rely. Number six telecoil reliance upon Allah is particularly emphasized when bad news comes your way.

00:25:35--> 00:25:54

This is something by the way the prophets of Allah Allah who send them sought refuge in Allah from woman Shari Cooley, Tarik, save me, Oh ALLAH from every knock on the door who gives me bad news? Allahu Akbar, right? When bad news comes to you, that could be in the form of a text message about

00:25:55--> 00:26:01

a blood test that didn't really go your way. And let your you receive from the post.

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

About a court case that's not going favorably.

00:26:08--> 00:26:21

Something about children about your finances, about a loved one. When you hear terrible news that saddens you or frightens you during that time telecoil upon Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who is emphasized?

00:26:23--> 00:26:40

And here I remember what happened to the Companions May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them. They had just experienced the tragic event of Ohio, the tragic Battle of 170 of the finest lives had been lost at the hands of the pagans, including the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:26:42--> 00:27:02

And they make their way home and their wounds are barely recovered, and their muscles are still throbbing and their heart ache, it's still at its peak, and blood is still in their shoes. It was a difficult, difficult day. And use is conveyed to them that the pagans are regrouping and they regret not having finished the job.

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

And they're coming to take part in a second battle on the next day.

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

Right.

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

And this was terrifying news for some.

00:27:15--> 00:27:53

And so the Sahara will the Allahu Anhu. They regrouped. And they gathered themselves and they found the strength and they relied upon Allah and they went to hundra Al Asad, which was the place where they were going to meet Abu Sufyan and his men, And subhanAllah the Muslims turned up the pagans didn't turn up for battle. So Allah Jalla Jalla, who who revealed the Ayah from the Quran, where he said Alladhina call Allah Humann in pajama Allah coinfection whom they are those meaning the Companions, who were told by the people, meaning the hypocrites, that the people meaning the pagans have gathered a huge force against you so fear them.

00:27:56--> 00:28:21

But this increased them in faith. Firstly, I don't mean man. It's increased them in Eman. Listen to what happened when they receive this bad news. Allah said it crease them in their Eman and they said has spoon Allah when I'm the lucky Allah is enough for us and He is the best Disposer of affairs. So what happened from kala bobina I met him in Allah who our Father so the Muslims returned back with the favor and bounty of Allah

00:28:22--> 00:28:45

lamium says home so a no harm touch them. What about what is one Allah and they had followed the pleasure of Allah wala who fuddling Rafi so when bad news is conveyed to a believer about his job, about his health, about his religion, whatever it may be about his or her honor, the place there tawakkul upon Allah subhana wa Tada

00:28:47--> 00:28:51

What is Allah Jalla Jalla who who offer the people of Temecula?

00:28:52--> 00:28:54

What is awarded for them?

00:28:55--> 00:29:05

I will share with you a few points here dear brothers and sisters, in the hope of enticing you to work towards this this is ongoing progress and work in progress for me as well.

00:29:06--> 00:29:09

They are offered the love of Elijah literally.

00:29:11--> 00:29:14

The greatest pursuit in existence is the pursuit of the love of Allah.

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

And loving him is one thing but the greatest matter is to be loved back by the king.

00:29:21--> 00:29:31

And a life that is devoid of the love of Allah ie you are a person whom Allah does not love. Then you are a poor person even with your money.

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

And you are a lonely person even with your friends. And you are a homeless person even in your home and you are an ill person even with your health and you are a dead person even with your life. The greatest pursuit of the wayfarer to the hereafter is the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala what happens when a person is loved by Allah, your life, your health, your finances, your religion, your grave

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

Your resurrection your outcome will all be taken into the divine and caring hands of Allah Jalla Jalla Allahu Allah, Allah who will not let you down? Then Allah will make an announcement into the heavens this hadith in Bukhari and Muslim on your authority of Abu Hurayrah he will call on to Gibreel and he will say yeah Gibreel in need or hypo fullerene for i o Gibreel.

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

I love someone so so love him

00:30:25--> 00:31:02

a conversation between Allah and Archangel Gibreel I love so and so. This person in sha Allah will be you if not already. I love so Ansel mentioned by name, so loving him so Angel Jibreel will love him then Gibreel will make an announcement into the heavens saying yeah hola Santa. In Allah, how you Hebrew for that and for our Hebrew people of the heavens, Allah Who loves so and so so love him so the people over the heavens love him then what happens? So my Yoda hola hola como la fille? Then love and acceptance of this person is placed on the earth.

00:31:05--> 00:31:20

So how does a person bring about the love of Allah I say to you, one of the many ways is to be a person of luck you rely upon him. Allah will love us for that. And that is why Allah said to the NABI SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam Thoth wine home pod and your companions

00:31:22--> 00:31:39

was still within the home and pray for their forgiveness. Where shall we at home Phil Amber and consult them in the matter for either as empty but when you decide to do something Fidella Quran Allah rely upon your Lord in Allah how you humbled whatever Kili because Allah loves those who rely upon

00:31:41--> 00:31:54

that what could upon Allah gender Judah who brings a person the love of Allah milliq the king subhanho wa Taala number two those who have relied upon Allah Jalla Jalla know who they are blessed with a triumph over the enemy.

00:31:56--> 00:32:00

Whatever on whoever the enemy may be, and whatever front

00:32:01--> 00:32:17

they are required to pull their weight and to rely upon the king even if they are outvoted and outnumbered. You remember the Muslims from bene Israel Ilan, Prophet Musa said to them, enter the blessed city. Allah has instructed you to fight in his path. Don't be afraid by the men in the city.

00:32:19--> 00:32:29

And they decided not to go in. So two men interjected Allah said cholera Giuliani Minella de nya halfmoon tool righteous men who are afraid of Allah

00:32:30--> 00:33:04

and Allah Allahu Allah Him whom Allah has bestowed His favor upon them, they said to Benny surah in the Quran, Allah him will Bab just surprise them with an attack. Enter the door surprisingly. So either the call to move over intercom hollobone If you do that Allah will give you victory while Allah He fed our income to movie upon your Lord rely if you are believers, upon Allah rely, if you are believers, those who rely upon Malik, they are given victory over their enemy.

00:33:06--> 00:33:19

The third thing that the people of telecoil are blessed with is that Allah Jalla Jalla Allah Who gives them a triumph over their private battle with shaper. And that person is me and that person is you. There is no escaping that reality.

00:33:20--> 00:33:48

We quoted in a hole a seller who sold on one other living in Anwar Ibrahim yatta yatta. Shaytan has no authority over those who believe in Allah and they rely upon him. No more OCD, no more obsessive thoughts, no more anxiety, or at least they are managed in a decent way. When a person relies upon his Lord, there's no more space for these feelings and their sensory sentiments

00:33:49--> 00:34:03

than before the people of terror could they are blessed with a sense of serenity and calmness and inner expanse that is only provided by tobacco reliance upon him Subhana horadada and it makes perfect sense. I want you to imagine

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

a person who makes his way to a law firm, a notary.

00:34:10--> 00:34:14

And he wants to give power of attorney

00:34:15--> 00:34:18

to a family member whom he trusts or a friend.

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

And so the notary says you sure he says yeah, I'm sure he says so. I mean, What type do you want? What type of power do you want to give to this individual? Is it finance property for his health and well being? He says both.

00:34:35--> 00:34:58

He says, Are you sure? He says yeah, he says, Do you know what this means? This means that they can sell your car without your permission. It means they can sell your house. It means they can put you in a care home if they want. He says yeah, I know exactly what it entails. But I'm willing to sign and give power of attorney because I know this person. I trust this person. This person will never let me down.

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

These facilities and these options exist. That's why law firms exist. That's a service that we use as human beings. So what then are the human being with respect to his Lord? Are you willing to sign

00:35:13--> 00:35:28

your life and your property away from Allah? Are you willing to trust him? Are you willing to depend upon him? Have you ever seen from Allah, anything but kindness, and dutifulness and mercy and answering of dua,

00:35:29--> 00:35:46

trust Him and be confident. And there is nothing that gives more peace and happiness than when you do that. You hand over the keys to your Lord and you say you're my Lord, You are in control, and I trust everything you send my way. And I have no qualms with God or

00:35:48--> 00:36:25

a sense of peace that no medicine can offer. But the people of telecoil are awarded the love of Allah, Allah Allah when they are awarded a triumph over their enemy, they are awarded victory over shape on and in their internal private battles. They are given serenity, comfort and peace like none other, they are given strength and courage like none other. This is a gift and an award for the people of telecoil reliance upon Allah, gender Generico look at them. And you see that people of color could behaving in the most inspiring of ways.

00:36:27--> 00:36:28

They give charity

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

with confidence. Why? Because their Tawakkol has evicted from their hearts, the fear of poverty.

00:36:37--> 00:36:48

strong and courageous. You see them in salah they are focused more than anyone else. Why? Because Terkel has evicted from their minds, the thought of business and work.

00:36:49--> 00:36:54

They've relied upon Allah, strong and courageous in control of their of their lives.

00:36:55--> 00:37:18

You find them when they get that horrible diagnosis from the doctor. They are the most composed of people. Why? Because their delicate their reliance has evicted from their heart, the fear of death. And they are content with anything that Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who may or may send their way. So they are strong, they are courageous, they are collected they are gathered. And that is why the Scholars they would say

00:37:20--> 00:37:48

men are the Guna. Near guna OCONUS. If and yet our Canada Allah, whoever desires to be the strongest of all people, let him rely upon Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah makes sense. You've now all of a sudden connected yourself with the source of all might no source source of all strength, you're strong and you're courageous, even though the circumstances may not be favorable. You've relied upon Allah and Malik the carrier of the heavens and the earth.

00:37:50--> 00:37:55

Case studies of people who became strong and courageous because of telecall I share with you a few.

00:37:56--> 00:38:16

Then a view of Allah He who we don't speak about him much yet he has a powerful story within his community. Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who said, and I translate Paulo yah hoo, do magic then I'll be the unit they said to him hood, this is unabIe they said to him Oh, hood, you haven't come with any clear evidence?

00:38:17--> 00:38:25

Why mana Hanabi daddy key ally Hatena colic and we're not going to leave our idol worshipping because of what you say

00:38:26--> 00:38:31

when a handler can be more meaning and we don't intend to believe in you either.

00:38:32--> 00:38:54

In Akoto Illa Taraka Babu early Hatena Ebisu Our opinion is that you've been possessed by our idols with some sort of evil hoods response color in new Shula, our shadow and the very own meme that you should recall and he said I make Allah my witness and all of you that I am free from what you associate with Allah.

00:38:55--> 00:39:09

Look One Man Army been doing for key Dooney Jamia and Somalia trombone, he said all of you plot against me and come to me at the same time and don't give me a chance. What gave him the strength?

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

Who knows the continuation of the idea?

00:39:13--> 00:39:22

You in the tower killed to Allah Allah here have you want to become I have relied upon ALLAH my lord and yours

00:39:23--> 00:39:24

Mamiya

00:39:25--> 00:39:38

Bettin Allahu Akbar, you don't be now so Yachty there is no creature he said on the land, except that ALLAH holds it by its forelock. In Nairobi, Allah Serato My Lord is upon the straight path.

00:39:39--> 00:39:50

Allah Hikmah what endowed him with this type of strength and courage, in face of adversity? Still call upon Allah He said it I have relied upon Allah afraid.

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

In fact, our own EBRD he sought out to set up say you agree with our Killeen, the leader of the people of our country

00:40:01--> 00:40:09

Imam Al Bukhari and Muslim the rate on the authority of jabber said that we were traveling with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the Battle of the Torah.

00:40:11--> 00:40:38

And every time we would come across a tree that offered shade, we would give it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for him to rest. On one particular siesta moment, when he was resting, he fell asleep and he had hung his sword on one of the branches of the tree. And then he woke up to the sight of a pagan who'd come into the lines without the Muslims realizing, and he'd picked up the sword and put it to the throat of the prophets of Allah, Allah himself, and he opens his eyes to the blade.

00:40:39--> 00:40:44

He said me, I'm now coming, who can save you from me? He said, Allah.

00:40:45--> 00:40:45

What happened?

00:40:47--> 00:40:50

In another narration, which Abu Bakr Al is Magne rates in his sahih

00:40:52--> 00:41:00

that the man shook. The sword fell from his hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam picked it up and put it to his throat, said, Who will protect you from me?

00:41:01--> 00:41:05

He said, Could hierarchy please be kind? Please be kind.

00:41:07--> 00:41:14

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Will you testify that no one has the right to be worshipped but Allah Allah, I am the messenger of Allah. He said, No.

00:41:16--> 00:41:34

But I can promise you that I will never be part of a party that fights you. And so the prophets of Isaiah let him go. And the man went back to his community and he said, projecto community and the hyenas I have come to you from the finest of all people. I have come to you from the greatest of all people.

00:41:35--> 00:41:36

What gave him this telecoil

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

and you have the likes of

00:41:43--> 00:41:50

che called Islam, you know, Tamia Rahim, Allah, he mentioned an amazing incident that he experienced during a public debate.

00:41:51--> 00:42:31

There were a group of deviance, who were disillusioning the Muslims, into thinking that they were carrying out some sort of miraculous feats. And part of what they claimed that they could do was walk into fire and indeed, they seem to be able to walk through fire to some extent, and people were shocked and they were following their ways and they were misguiding the masses. So even though the media he knew that this was trickery and deceit, he said to them, you're not really walking through fire, you're covering your body with some sort of animal fat and frog grease, some sort of fire repellent chemical, and that's what's allowing you to carry out its trickery.

00:42:34--> 00:42:46

The debate took place, voices were raised. Emotions were heightened. So they said let's come back the next day. Sheikh Khalid slammy multimedia he said that evening.

00:42:47--> 00:43:10

I prayed Salah to istikhara I did the prayer of consultation was the day to who was the answer to who and I asked Allah for a and for help and I made dua, and then as I was calling him that night, it fell into my heart that if they should challenge me to walk into the fire, I will walk into the fire.

00:43:12--> 00:43:16

And I developed a type of certainty that if I did that,

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

it wasn't gonna harm me.

00:43:20--> 00:43:27

The same way it does not harm the true followers of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam Ibrahim who was launched in the fire and saved

00:43:29--> 00:43:37

courage and strength right. So the next day during the debate they spoke and they spoke and voices were raised and then there shake he said, Don't you know

00:43:38--> 00:43:40

we walked through fire

00:43:42--> 00:43:47

shake all Islam said to him and I can do that as well inshallah.

00:43:48--> 00:43:58

And he was shocked. And she said, the one who does that and he burns to death may the curse of Allah be upon him agreed. He said, agreed.

00:43:59--> 00:44:16

And then the shopkeeper began to target his clothes now he's taken off his shirt. He's about to walk into the fire. She said, it might be new Tamia, Rahim, Allah said, Hold on, I have just one condition. If you don't mind, the condition is that both of us dip ourselves in a flammable chemical.

00:44:18--> 00:44:32

Let's let's be serious. And at that point, signs of hesitation began to appear from the face of this individual. He said to him, I am ready. He repeated the challenge here again and again. And he decided to

00:44:33--> 00:44:44

walk away from the challenge and the Muslims did their tech beer, and they recited the iron for Holy bonallack. They were defeated when Columbus arrived in and they returned in the state of disgrace.

00:44:45--> 00:44:59

What gave him the strength? What gave him this strange episode of courage? It was his amazing levels of Tawakkol upon Allah Jalla Jalla Allah. I remember the words of Abdul Karim who said no and a lot

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

that Allah Allah Allah Allah He had our Cooley he fee is Lottie Jabon

00:45:06--> 00:45:22

what can moron Vida Nicola as Allah who if a person was truly to rely upon Allah the Reliance he deserves, in moving a mountain from its place and he was instructed to do that by Allah, he wouldn't be able to move them out.

00:45:23--> 00:45:32

It's just what could you are connected to Al Malik King subhanho wa Taala and is given this type of phenomenal strength and this type of courage.

00:45:35--> 00:45:36

This is

00:45:37--> 00:45:45

another one of the gifts Allah Jelena God Allah Who awards the people of strength and courage. What else does he give them?

00:45:47--> 00:45:48

Allah subhanaw taala

00:45:49--> 00:45:52

allows them to achieve their goals.

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

What are your goals?

00:45:56--> 00:46:40

What are your goals? What do you want from life? You want certain things from this world? What do you want from the afterlife? What are the things that you fear in this world? What are the things that you fear about death and post death? Those who have relied upon Allah Jana, Jana Allahu. He will take care of all of these things and he will help them achieve them. Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them abundance He will fill their hands and he will allow them to achieve their goals. That's financial. For example, Omar kebab narrated that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no and nycomed our calcium Allah Allah He Hakata Cooley, if you relied upon Allah properly, let

00:46:40--> 00:46:54

us welcome karma Yasuko player he will provide for you the same way he provides for the bird. He said Delgado females on Mataro Hobbiton. And it goes out in the morning with an empty belly and goes home in the evening with a belly filled with food.

00:46:55--> 00:47:02

What are your endeavors? What are your goals that people have? teleco they are aided by Allah subhanho wa Taala Are you ill?

00:47:03--> 00:47:33

Are you looking for some sort of Shiva cure? The people of telecoil they are aided by Allah subhanho wa Taala look at Yaqoob I think he said what did he say to his sons when they went to Egypt to meet their brother use it? He said please let a colo mean bobbin why don't all of you enter from one door with whom in Abu Dhabi moto Federico come in to use of spreads from many different doors maybe like two from here, two from there maybe one or two from here don't come from the same door. Why did he do that?

00:47:35--> 00:47:38

Does anyone know? By the way? Why why he gave that introduction

00:47:42--> 00:47:42

Azzam

00:47:46--> 00:47:47

good one but not that

00:47:49--> 00:48:25

Yeah, most of the scholars of Tafseer they said that they said that he was afraid that they will be touched by the evil eye. You know when you see mashallah these these men, about 11 of them are strong or handsome these are use of the brothers handsome man upright mashallah and they all coming together and they all look the same. People started looking at them, he was afraid that they will be affected by what? The evil eye so he said disperse, you know, come from different doors. But then what did he say in the same breath in it? How can we learn in law and he they were killed, I have relied upon Allah while even yet our calorie limit our ketone and upon Allah that the Reliance rely.

00:48:26--> 00:48:31

So he was saved. So the people who rely on Allah, their goals are met.

00:48:34--> 00:48:38

Maybe we speak about Haji Ali has Salam.

00:48:41--> 00:48:49

The zamzam that came from beneath her feet if somebody says to you summarize for me the story of hjem and Ibrahim, say to them that is a story of telecoil

00:48:50--> 00:48:53

that is a story of reliance upon Allah Jana Jana Ando.

00:48:55--> 00:49:21

Right? She said, Where are you going? You leaving us in this barren desert all by ourselves? And he wouldn't answer her Maccha wasn't like the Mecca. You see today. It was just an endless desert. She said, You're leaving us? Who are you leaving us to be ha ha the lady like Sophie and Eastern Washington. There's no one here. There's nothing here. He wouldn't answer her. She said to him, Allah Who America you had and I did Allah instruct you to do this.

00:49:23--> 00:49:42

And then he turned around and he said, Yes. She said, either now you're on your own. Then Allah will not forsake as she went back and you know the rest of the story. And zamzam is as you know, today, maybe some of you have zamzam in the house, here in the UK, although it sources all the way around. What is that story? A sign of

00:49:44--> 00:49:58

teleco upon Allah subhanaw taala so the people of telecoil are blessed. Allah helps them fulfill their their ends, Allah supports them Allah ease them. My share you and He is the shape of some of you as well. I know that

00:49:59--> 00:50:00

you

00:50:00--> 00:50:17

You will know that he went through a very difficult health condition and cancer a very strange form of cancer kept reappearing in his body. And each time the surgeon would operate upon him and they would remove more and more of it, and it would come back more aggressively until it came back a third time.

00:50:18--> 00:50:22

And when I went to visit him with my father in law,

00:50:23--> 00:50:36

the cancer had become so large here in his neck that it was touching his earlobe like this, like a large pomegranate, protruding from his shoulder, it was a horrific sight. And his jacket was two different levels.

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

And he was so

00:50:41--> 00:51:02

elated and so strong and so positive. And we said to him, we know such and such person who had a similar type of cancer, Allah killed him and we know this sister from Newport, this is true, and she had a very similar hola que toda. He said, Yeah, you should also give me the other option. That may happen. I said, What's that? He said, Yeah, I may also die. And what is wrong with that?

00:51:03--> 00:51:07

That's also an option. We should be fine with that. Why don't you mention that as an option as well?

00:51:09--> 00:51:12

And then he said, but anyway, I just like to tell you this is going to go

00:51:13--> 00:51:54

and if it wasn't for my mother, who is forcing me to do chemotherapy, I would have just recited Quran and done Rokia to show them Muslims. Allah is the one who kills and to make an example of myself and it will go but my mother she's insisted I can disobey her. And he said, We are reciting Quran and Allah has described the Quran as being the truth. And this year on my shoulder, this is battling this is false. And Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran in Surah Surah Jha al Haku was about to the truth has come and falsehood goes in Alberta, Canada, hookah because falsehood by its nature is bound to perish. He said this is bound to perish Bismillah heeta Allah and it perished by

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

the permission of Elijah and

00:51:56--> 00:52:30

they operated upon him. They said to Him, most likely we will have to amputate your entire arm Alhamdulillah the arm is intact. And he's living before Belinda has stronger life than usual. And we joke with him we say that after your chemotherapy and all of your hair fell off and now it's grown back. You've grown back with half the gray hair that you had in the past. This is true. He grew back with almost half the gray hair he had in the past. This is Jani Dolphy from Allah and aid from Alaba the people of telecoil right, that said whoo hoo Caligula who has evil, they are aided by Allah to fulfill that ends.

00:52:33--> 00:52:36

The people of Telugu they are awarded with Jana

00:52:37--> 00:52:39

and is the greatest prize after the love of Allah.

00:52:41--> 00:53:15

Allah said in Surah, two Lanka both listen to these soothing eyes that will let you know who I mean funny hat and those who believe and they work with deeds. Lenovo, we and our home media agenda to hold on.

Now magical nominee and how excellent is the reward of those who work? Who are they Alladhina Sabado those who are patient why not work alone and upon the Lord. They realize

00:53:17--> 00:53:22

the last thing I want to share with your brothers and sisters is a blueprint to how we can work towards tobacco.

00:53:25--> 00:53:34

The first thing I advise myself and your sales for those who are interested in being an individual reliance upon Allah and to earn all of these gifts that I spoke about.

00:53:35--> 00:53:40

The ultimate way of attaining Tawakkol is to know Elijah let's

00:53:42--> 00:53:44

recognize your Lord.

00:53:45--> 00:53:47

Have you noticed how on an aeroplane

00:53:48--> 00:53:51

when it begins to move because it's going through

00:53:53--> 00:54:14

lousy weather and there's turbulence and it feels like as if you're flying through breaks or sand and everyone is terrified and you're holding your breath and you're making dua and you're making your apologies to your Lord and you feel as if you're going to die. Everyone is terrified everyone is scared everyone is calling upon someone or something with the exception to who

00:54:16--> 00:54:17

with the exception to who

00:54:18--> 00:54:55

don't say the Muslims, all of us who are in the same boat with the exception to the the other cabin crew. Look at them. The aeroplane feels like it's about to explode. And you know life is continuing. Would you like tea sir? Would you like a biscuit? He would you need you need some earphones? They're still gossiping. They still backstabbing each other. If it gets too turbulent, maybe they need to sit down and she'll use that opportunity to top up the lipstick or you know to put on those magnetic eyelashes because they're slipping off and everything is normal. Everyone is praying for God and for safety and they're they're so cool. How come?

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

Because they have knowledge of

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

Something that we don't know, that's allowed them to be calm. They know that this is what aeroplanes experienced the experience turbulence is not scary.

00:55:10--> 00:55:25

They know that it's been around three or four or five decades and no aeroplane has been reported to crash because of turbulence the last aeroplane that is reported to have crashed because of turbulence in 1966 on Mount Fuji.

00:55:27--> 00:55:58

So the modern day craft is designed to deal with it by Allah's permission very, very well. That's what they know. So their knowledge of the aeroplane has helped them rely upon the aeroplane. Similarly, the most of them's knowledge of Allah, he is an Melek sovereignty is his kingdom is His richness, wealth is it is your knowledge of allelic causes you to rely upon him. And when people are scared because of the turbulence of life.

00:55:59--> 00:56:04

You're at peace. What gave you that peace, your

00:56:05--> 00:56:06

knowledge of Allah

00:56:07--> 00:56:15

and by the way, and we said this so many times one of the best ways of knowing Allah is studying His names and his attributes. Have you started to study Dear brothers and sisters?

00:56:17--> 00:56:26

And that's why in the Quran and this is a small footnote, have you noticed? So many times, the topic of Tawakkol is linked with the names of Allah.

00:56:27--> 00:56:37

Have you noticed this? Hamid almost as if we're being told that by knowing Allah's names, to what cool will sprout in your life like what

00:56:38--> 00:56:47

what are what can Allah Aziza Rahim Allah said, rely have never called upon who Elijah is the most mighty or Rahim, the Most Merciful.

00:56:48--> 00:57:01

And let the Urraca Hina Taku the one who sees you, when you're standing in prayer, water Kaluga Caffee surgery in and he sees your movement when you are prostrating in now who who has sent me all I leave he's the one who hears a nose.

00:57:02--> 00:57:29

Look at the whatever code is linked to what the names of Allah, Allah said, What the what Khalil hate Ulladulla mode rely upon the EverLiving Who never dies, as if to say you know His names, the byproduct will be telecoil it will come. And that's why some scholars and this is the third definition of Tawakkol I promise to share with you today, some scholars said at teleco Meriva to Ma It is knowing Allah.

00:57:31--> 00:57:35

They said the word coal reliance upon Allah is simply knowing Allah.

00:57:36--> 00:57:47

As if to say that when you know him, it is so certain that teleca will become part of your life. We don't even need to mention it in the definition. What is there

00:57:48--> 00:57:50

knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:57:51--> 00:57:57

so start structured study of the names of Allah please, dear brothers and sisters.

00:57:59--> 00:58:10

Number two, I'm just conscious of the time now, maybe we will summarize number two. Number two to attain our code is to recite the book of Allah Jalla Jalla Lu with contemplation

00:58:12--> 00:58:19

This allows the heart to rest and say yeah, I I really depend upon him and I rely upon him. I'm not scared anymore.

00:58:20--> 00:59:01

I made him no device from the turbine. He said three verses from the Quran has helped me rely upon my Lord, what are they? He said number one, where Allah says in surah two Yunus right, download these ayat and keep them in front of you when you fear that your Tawakkol is not in check. Three versus number one surah two Jonas Allah said we're em Cisco Allahu Biddle fell out cash if Allahu Allahu Allah touches you with adversity. Nobody can remove it except him. What are you really can be hiring failure on the family. And if Allah intends to good for you, no one can repel his bounty. He said that give me teleco

00:59:02--> 00:59:24

what is the second iron secondaria he said is from surah two Fatar where Allah subhanaw taala said Maria after he No holy Nursey Mia Rana Pharmaceutica Lucha whatever mercy Allah opens up for someone, no one can withhold it. Well now human sick fella Morrissey Allah home in value, and what Allah holds from his mercy, no one can open it back up.

00:59:26--> 00:59:32

The third verse that helped him with DevaCurl is where Allah says in surah 201 I mean,

00:59:33--> 00:59:47

that in fill out the Illa Allah Allah here to school, ha there is no moving creature on the earth except that it is upon Allah to provide for it. He said these three verses blessed me with Tawakkol

00:59:48--> 00:59:55

knowing Allah through His names reciting Quran with contemplation number three, to take the means and measures.

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

How do I be a person of the word goal? Do

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

What you humanly need to do to achieve to attain your aims do something about it.

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

The workload is not about sitting at home and wishing for the best.

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

Nor is your telecoil detracted from when you do something.

01:00:14--> 01:00:31

No part of telecoil reliance upon Allah is that you do something and you do your best, whilst acknowledging that your attempts are futile if Allah does not allow them to blossom, who is Musa people as bad? The causer of all causes ALLAH SubhanA wa

01:00:36--> 01:00:41

and that is why when the sahabi said to the prophets that I sent him, ya rasool Allah, He

01:00:42--> 01:00:47

knew how a telecoil will receive will have a delicate messenger of Allah should I tie my camel

01:00:49--> 01:01:16

and rely upon Allah? Or should I let my camel go and rely upon Allah? He said, No, and I'll tell you how whatever can tie your camel and rely upon Allah do what you need to do. Musa alayhis salam was amount of telecon but he was told to go at night and to take any sort of oil out of Egypt. He had to do what he had to do was a man nor was a man of telecoil but he was instructed to build an ark. You do your bit, Allah who will do the impossible.

01:01:17--> 01:01:29

Allah Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he went to war, he would put on two elements of two body armor, two pieces of body armor, and he was the greatest the Imam of the Motorola Killeen.

01:01:31--> 01:01:36

And he would store food for his family in his house for a year. And he is the Imam of the people of telecoil.

01:01:39--> 01:02:01

And when he migrated to Medina, he didn't just make dua, he made a 10 point plan to go to Abu Bakr his house at night, to keep it a secret to leave from the rear entrance of the house of Abu Bakr to go down the coast as opposed to the main route because it was longer, but it was away from the eyes of the trackers to hide in a cave for three days

01:02:02--> 01:02:14

to have a smell, deliver them food and revenue for hire to cover up their tracks when they were walking Abdullah son of Abu Bakr, bringing them intelligence spying for them effectively,

01:02:15--> 01:02:22

going southwards instead of north where Medina was in the beginning of the journey to lose the trackers. Why did he do that?

01:02:23--> 01:02:30

Because that's part of the West corner. That's part of relying upon Allah subhanho Medina.

01:02:31--> 01:02:33

So you can see that our code is like a,

01:02:34--> 01:02:36

a mountain that has a summit.

01:02:37--> 01:02:43

That summit is typical. And then you go to slippery slopes, you can fall this way or that way.

01:02:45--> 01:02:54

There are some who fall this way, when they say we rely upon Allah. But we don't need to take the means Allah will sort everything out. We say you're an idiot.

01:02:55--> 01:03:06

That's an idiocy, that's idiocy to claim to have occurred without doing something about it. That's one side of the slope. Then you have the other side of the slope. Those who say, No, I will do everything needed.

01:03:07--> 01:03:39

But I don't believe in this god business. We say that's also idiocy. That's actually cool for the biller. Our call is what for your hands, your limbs to engage, to buy, sell, to send the CV to set up the website to engage in Dawa, to do what you need to do. But your heart believes that all of it is futile. If Allah doesn't help it, Blossom and coming to fruition. By the way, small caveat here, when we talk about relying upon Allah in achieving your ends,

01:03:40--> 01:03:40

right.

01:03:43--> 01:03:50

We're not talking about the Haram means we say take the means right? This was number three. We're not talking about the prohibited means.

01:03:52--> 01:03:55

Like those who sell alcohol they say this I'm relying upon Allah

01:03:57--> 01:04:04

or they have a shisha in their shop. They say what can we do? We're looking for our Reza, you haven't relied upon Allah, what is your assumption of Allah?

01:04:06--> 01:04:21

Are those who insist that shisha have to be has to be part of their business or some sort of smoking cigarette or drug users or drug sellers they say we're relying upon Allah what can we do we have to look for hours. You have not relied upon Allah subhanaw taala ma no comparable.

01:04:23--> 01:04:59

I remember Subhanallah I was amazed when I saw this myself in one of the local shops here in Cardiff in butetown visiting the shop and about to hand over the cash to the salesman and what was behind the salesman really caught my eye it was hard to miss I mean, you had rows upon rows of cigarettes and all types of varieties stacked one on top of the other. You had your your Malborough and you've got your camel, you've got your lnM and you've got your Cleopatra and you've got it all there. And then on top of that you had alcohol again, so many different types your Mateen

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

Isn't your Jack Daniels and your Amstelveen, your Guinness and

01:05:04--> 01:05:15

then on top of all of that, he's got his beautifully crafted bit of calligraphy that has an area of the Quran which says, while Allah He can do it come to me bless your reliance upon Allah if you are a believer.

01:05:16--> 01:05:20

It just seems so odd like the irony, the contradiction

01:05:21--> 01:05:28

as if you are saying that Allah can only provide for you from the Haram as if you're going to add to your risk your provisions.

01:05:29--> 01:05:46

Two things in life are chasing you, they're gonna catch up with you whether you like it or not, you can't outrun two things. Death, your risk, both will catch up with you go to the highest mountain on Earth, dive into the deepest ocean, there will be waiting for you when the time is there. And so when you're ready, it will come to you.

01:05:49--> 01:05:52

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the hadith of a Buddha

01:05:55--> 01:06:08

that man is pursued by his resume the same way he is pursued by death. You're chased. You're chased down by your risk the same way you chase down by death. Yaki Subhanallah,

01:06:09--> 01:06:21

a brother of mine, or my back at university, Somali brother, Allah preserve him. He told me, we used to travel to Kenya a lot, because we had family there, and we used to enjoy swimming in Kenya

01:06:22--> 01:06:46

is either down here or down here like the people of Kenya, right? So he said this into this yard? No, he said, we were swimming. And there was about maybe eight or nine of us, and one of the brothers really deep. And all of a sudden, we noticed that we were like seven, we're not eight, whereas Funan were so and so they looked, they noticed that he is

01:06:47--> 01:06:53

in and out of the ocean, somewhere very deep where he shouldn't be. So they swam towards him.

01:06:54--> 01:07:05

And they brought him back to the shore. And he effectively died, I mean, call us and they tried to give him mouth to mouth and to resuscitate him and he was finished. He was blown.

01:07:06--> 01:07:33

And then Subhanallah all of a sudden, water gushed out from his nose and from his mouth and he and he was he was better. And he we he sat up and we spoke and we hugged him we wept, we praised Allah subhanaw taala. And we were just so happy. And he was recovering. He's leaning on us and speaking. And then one of the brothers said just a second. I mean, this is a time for Coke, right? So he went to one of the shops and he bought everyone a can or a bottle of Coke.

01:07:34--> 01:07:41

And he said Subhanallah Ali, he finished drinking his bottle of Coke. Then he's put his head back onto the sand and he died.

01:07:42--> 01:07:47

And I said to him, Look, there was one more bottle of coke that Allah had written for him to drink.

01:07:48--> 01:07:54

He had to consume it, then he will die. Your risk you can't run away from it while you're going down the route of haram.

01:07:56--> 01:08:00

Alcohol will add to your risk drugs will add to your risk.

01:08:02--> 01:08:03

It is impossible.

01:08:05--> 01:08:12

And notice that the one who goes down this path Allah will punish him by closing the doors of halal and he doesn't even know how to go down the route of Halal anymore.

01:08:13--> 01:08:46

And poverty will between me between his eyes wherever he looks, he sees poverty. I leave that behind him. He said I came across a masjid in Kufa. I stopped off and I went into the masjid I wanted to pray and before I came into the masjid, I said to a young boy, I said to him, can you just take care of my camel or my ride? Just until I finished salah. He said sure. I came back out of the masjid early he said and the saddle had been stolen that young kid I entrusted the camel to had run away with the saddle.

01:08:48--> 01:08:59

And subhanAllah Ali had put his hand into his pocket with a the amount of gold he wanted to give that young boy as a thanks for taking care of my horse. The boy had made a run for it with his property.

01:09:00--> 01:09:08

Anyway, so and you know, the Allahu Anhu said, What can I do? He gave this gold coin to another, another child. He said can you just go to the marketplace and bind me? I said, I gotta get home.

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

So the young boy went to the marketplace. And he came back with a saddle

01:09:14--> 01:09:17

and he said Subhan Allah, this is my saddle.

01:09:18--> 01:09:19

That's my saddle.

01:09:20--> 01:09:45

The young boy said yeah, there was a kid selling in the marketplace for a dinar for Edina and he said Subhana Allah, Allah to an altar Yahoo halal and further Indian Yehuda Raman. And he said I wanted to give him this dinar this gold in the halal way. But he insisted to take it in the halal he insisted to take in the Haram what changed? Say money but there's what's difference is the outcome is the same.

01:09:46--> 01:09:59

So if your Allah Dear Brothers and Sisters, remember your businesses, your is your your life. It's all written you're being chased. You cannot run away from what is written for you why pursue the Haram and those who do this they have not relied upon the law.

01:10:00--> 01:10:03

They have not recognized their Lord as He should be recognized.

01:10:04--> 01:10:12

Number four, we will conclude by saying make dua call upon Allah subhanaw taala and beg him for tobacco included in your list of DUA

01:10:13--> 01:10:48

and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He taught his students to do this dua we McRib, the dua of the distressed what is it? That you are of the distressed? What is it Allahumma or Hermetica RM ju O Allah it is your mercy I have hopes in Fela takhini ila and FC Darfur dying, so do not interest me to myself for even the blinking of an eye. While also the hellish shout me hula hoe and correct all of my affairs for me, you know, none has the right to be worshipped. But your brothers and sisters, I have finished the session I want you to share with you.

01:10:50--> 01:10:53

The last message, I just want to tell you this.

01:10:55--> 01:11:13

emailed him again, when he spoke about tobacco, he mentioned something that I hadn't really thought about before this. He said that most people when they think about our call, the limited to the lower levels of tobacco, the lesser manifestations of tobacco,

01:11:14--> 01:12:04

in achieving an element of dunya, food, drink money, people are relying upon Allah for their bellies that you can solve with a half a loaf of bread, he said. And people are relying upon Allah to work coal for their health, and the simplest medicine can usually solve it. And this is good and favorable. But he said, the higher levels of telecon is what is requested from the believer, to rely upon Allah to become a better Muslim, to rely upon Allah, to overcome that with springs and temptations of Shavon. To rely upon Allah, when giving Dawa to people and finding a project for yourself. He says, These are the higher levels of telecoil that the Muslims should be thinking about

01:12:04--> 01:12:15

when discussing the topic of telecoil and Hatchimal Assan. They said to Him, How did you become a man of telecoil he said, I built my telecoil upon four things.

01:12:16--> 01:12:28

I limp to analysis Lila Kulu Haley, Fatima Neff, see I've come to learn that no one will eat my risk except myself. So I'm at peace

01:12:29--> 01:12:31

while him to anomaly

01:12:32--> 01:12:33

Gregory

01:12:34--> 01:12:41

festival to be here. And I've come to learn that no one will do my deeds for me except myself. So I have busied myself doing deeds

01:12:42--> 01:12:51

while him to another Maotai teeny Baghdad Bogota value and I've come to realize that death will come to me suddenly. So I am pre empting death

01:12:52--> 01:13:14

while him to Aneela human is he for Anna Mr. Heyman who and I've come to learn that I am never invisible from the eye of Allah and so I am shy of him. These are the formatters had him on Assam said, I have used to establish and build my telecoil upon it We ask Allah to make us people have ever could. Or some Allah Allah Allah you know Muhammad will hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen
