Wamena Layli first jeu de la who was a Beholder in the villa, and during the night for straight to him, and it result him for a long part of the night. Do you see the link? Brother Adam?
Do you see how these verses speak to you? Do you see the connection that Allah the Most High is making between being able to cope patiently
and the remembrance of Allah
It's an amazingly the scholars have spoken about it, even though to me and he said that Allah has commanded His Prophet to remember him during the morning and the evening. Because his remembrance is the greatest assistance in bearing the burden of patience. And he was also commanded to show patients by praying at night.
So his night prayer will act as assistance for the tasks that are ahead of him by day
An ingredient for his strength Subhanallah rewind with me, brother Adam, for just a moment, stepped into the shoes of Prophet Musa alayhis salam for just a moment I want you to imagine with me now the huge worries involved in needing to go to the pharaoh of Egypt to invite him to Islam.
And a man who had attributes of God who to himself and wanted Musa himself dead or alive, for what he saw was murder. A nerve wracking endeavor. But Allah wouldn't send Musa and his brother huddled without weaponry. What was their weaponry? It's the same as what we're speaking about now, bro. I want you to equip yourself with Allah said to them, if you have a cool kbit 120 evictory

and one last thing before I love you and leave you I want to gift you with one specific phrase of remembrance taught by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to a very stressed out companion of his. He wants to walk into the mosque and found a man nicknamed Abu mana all by himself.
And the messenger alayhi salatu salam said to him, What makes you sit in the mosque during a time when it's not prayer? And the man he said something that you can relate to Adam, homeowners you met me What do you own jasola
He said Messenger of Allah, it's due to burdens that have entangled me. And that's
and so the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said to him a fella or Animoca column and either in the context of Allah Azza wa Jalla Hanoch Wakaba hunkydory Enoch, shall I not teach you some words?
Through which if you say them, Allah will remove your values and he will set to your decks
The man said yes, teach me and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him to say in every morning and evening these following words memorize them hola hola in the Hour will be coming and help me when hasn't what are all the becoming an hydrazine Wilkerson?

So I say to you, as I say to Adam, memorize those words, which the prophets Allah Allah Allah who was taught to abort will never put them into action every morning and evening, and ultimately, make the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala your fortress, which you retreat to when you are afraid, and when you are down. We've been promised that this fort is an impenetrable one.
