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

haven't talked to anyone in so long

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

they will never breathe,

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

we will fail fade into the

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

20th

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

It's been a while since there was movement at my front door

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

a single piece of paper flew through the post.

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

It was one of them sponsor an orphan letters.

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

I just left it made my way to the kitchen.

00:00:48--> 00:00:52

I've been living on edge for months now, almost my tipping points.

00:00:53--> 00:00:55

And now I'm expected to sponsor and often

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

the thought of doing something else just gives me a headache.

00:01:03--> 00:01:06

But as I was soaking up my breakfast, it hit me.

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

This child is alone.

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

With no mum, know that

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

they're expected to carry on to deal with the struggles of life.

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

And yet, they've only just started out.

00:01:26--> 00:01:31

This will seem so familiar. From the loneliness, to the pain to the hurt.

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

This child is me.

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

And I must take care of myself.

00:01:41--> 00:01:47

You are living proof of just how much wisdom a person can arrive.

00:01:49--> 00:01:56

By simply giving himself the space to think things through Adam, you've arrived at the right conclusion.

00:01:57--> 00:02:05

Because what can be more effective in addressing your own problems then by addressing the problems of others.

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

I mean, if life seems unbearable,

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

literally searched for a poor person, feed him

00:02:13--> 00:02:38

a loan someone assumed that he needs console those who are sad, give reassurances to those who have despaired in fact even something as small as making space for your brother to sit next to you within a busy room. According to the Quran plays a major role in opening up your heart with joy did Allah Almighty say yeah, you had a lady in Amman who

00:02:39--> 00:02:52

is our theological deficit Oh feeling of jealousy FAFSA, we have sila hola como, you will believe when you are told to make space in the assemblies, then make space Allah will make space for you.

00:02:53--> 00:03:09

Notice brother Adam, in the area that you just heard, that Allah did not specify what it is that Allah will make space in for you. He kept it open. In other words, Allah will make space for you but why and how?

00:03:11--> 00:03:18

To Space in what it was leftover to encompass space in all things that you could possibly need in your life space within your heart.

00:03:19--> 00:03:32

Space, within your health space within your grave. Space on the Day of Judgment space in paradise. Make space for people. Allah subhanaw taala will make space for you.

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

I don't know I don't need to remind you

00:03:36--> 00:03:43

of our very own prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his first experience with Revelation and what happened to him? You remember?

00:03:44--> 00:04:12

When he ran back to his wife Khadija gripped with horror, feared for his life. But then the words which his wife Khadija said to him to console him for me are so telling. What did she say focus she said to him canal Allah Hema Yokosuka Allah whoever done in Nicoletta sido Rahim what I mean don't kill your taxable Alma do watery life what Rahim Allah and Allah he will hug. She said never Allah would never disgrace a man like you.

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

And then why? She said because you keep relations with your family.

00:04:18--> 00:04:38

You help the poor and the destitute. You serve your guests generously. You assist people who've been afflicted with calamities SubhanAllah. Notice Adam, that the qualities which she identified in him as being reasons why Allah will not let him down.

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

Each and every one of them was directly

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

connected to his conduct with people.

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

She's reminding him that a person of this type of quality and service to others will be assisted by Allah supported by Allah aided by Allah protected by Allah honored by Allah in this world and the hereafter. So we

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

remedy your problems by remedying those of others. I love the words of Abdullah Hypno headbands. Who said so he will not Ophelia yoga. While in the work I want you to take

00:05:14--> 00:05:24

the one who does good to others. He doesn't fall he cannot fall, but should he fall, he will always find something to lean on.

00:05:26--> 00:05:47

I know you've got enough on your plate as it is. But nevertheless make every effort to track down people who have burdens similar to yours or others that need alleviating in the hope that Allah will alleviate yours. Your kindness to people will be met by kindness by Allah and he will attend to your rules. When your personal crisis has peaked.

00:05:48--> 00:06:03

When you feel that you are at the very rock bottom of life, be it a financial crisis. marital breakdown, trouble with health, an unjust smear campaign by the media fear that's keeping you up at night or anything else. Recall

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

this model that I have just shared with Adam, actively search for others who need assistance and be at their aid.

00:06:12--> 00:06:23

Having realized that by doing so, you will no longer left to cater for your worries. But Allah subhanaw taala will now involve His divine self to alleviate us.

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

In one of my favorite Hadith

00:06:28--> 00:06:40

that reawakens within me, my consciousness and my drive and desire to help people when I feel that I am the one who needs help and assistance

00:06:41--> 00:06:53

is the statement of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he said, beneficial meaning goodworth and in corabi Dunya the first Allahu Anhu caught by 10 Min, kurabe Yeoman piano.

00:06:55--> 00:06:59

Whoever alleviates a burdened person from the burdens of life,

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

Allah will alleviate from him one of the burdens of the Day of Judgment.

00:07:06--> 00:07:16

And then he said Woman Yes surah Allah Ma said in your SIR Allahu Allah He dunya on Earth and whoever makes the life of the one in financial difficulty easy for him.

00:07:17--> 00:07:22

Allah will ease his life in this world and in the Hereafter.

00:07:23--> 00:07:45

And then he said woman cetera Muslim and cetera hula hula for dunya and whoever covers the faults of a Muslim, Allah will cover his faults in this world and in the Hereafter, and then listen with me now dear brothers and sisters to the breathtaking conclusion. He said, What Allah Who Xiaomi Labadie Maya candelabra Doofy honey

00:07:47--> 00:07:55

and Allah will continue to be at the assistance of his slave so long as this person is at the assistance of his brother.

00:08:10--> 00:08:31
