what may Allah Allah Sula who vaca divisor hos and I'll do my bad.

00:02:20--> 00:02:52

All praises due to Allah we seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires whom Allah guides no one can miss guide and who me Allah has to be misled, no one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship, except ALLAH, ALLAH and having no partners in that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and His Messenger in his perfect worshiper, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says in the Quran, oh you believe fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and do not die except in a state of Islam. And Allah says, All Mankind Fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and produce from that soul its

00:02:52--> 00:03:13

mate, and made from their combination many men and women, so Fear your Lord whom you ask each other by and by the ties of kinship, verily, Allah is Ever Watchful over you. And Allah says, Oh, you who believe fear Allah and say that which is correct, you will correct for you your deeds and forgive you your sins, and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, then they are indeed victorious, to proceed

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

as we continue to be

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

with the events that are unfolding in Gaza.

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

And the world is amazed.

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

At the belief, the steadfastness, the dedication, the sacrifice of our brothers and sisters in Gaza, may Allah azza wa jal bring them immediate relief. Allahumma Amin

00:03:39--> 00:03:53

you hear comments from people saying these are people that we did not think existed in this time in place. It's like they are the people that we read about of old and we heard about of old,

00:03:54--> 00:04:01

their resilience, their dedication, their Deen has caused non Muslims to read the Quran

00:04:02--> 00:04:12

and it has caused non Muslims to accept Islam and it has caused Muslims to reread the Quran and has caused Muslims to recommit to Islam.

00:04:15--> 00:04:21

And part of it is just because of how foundational there Iman is.

00:04:22--> 00:04:48

The basics are what anchor a person, the basics are what grounds a person and give them a strong foundation. And so in this brief quote, but I just wanted to speak about one of those things that is so instrumental to our faith. And yet we are seeing it play out in real time and follows theme and that is simply a token Allah Allah reliance on Allah subhana wa Tada

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

when you see videos of a person saying to the camera, what's wrong with you? He's speaking to us. What's the matter with you? Don't you believe in Allah? What's the matter with you who is stronger them or on

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

Law, who is stronger Who should I rely on other than Allah Subhana Allah.

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

Allah subhanaw taala says we will called Lena.

00:05:09--> 00:05:19

He says we're called Lena Isla Bani Israel. Phil kitab. Or before that Allah Subhana Allah says, walkabout or Buka Allah taboo. Illa.

00:05:21--> 00:05:28

Allah subhanaw taala says rather than salted Muslim men, Allah says Robin mushiya will mostly be Allah, Allah allow for the Hebrew Akela.

00:05:30--> 00:05:45

Allah subhanaw taala says a certain Muslim at verse nine. There is nothing worthy of worship except for Allah so take him as your lucky take him as your best Disposer of affairs. And Allah subhanho wa Taala he says,

00:05:47--> 00:06:28

to take him as the best Disposer of affairs, Allah subhanaw taala is our Disposer of affairs. He is the one that we rely on and the reliance on Allah Subhana Allah Allah has a number of pillars. The first pillar is knowledge that you know who Allah subhanaw taala is, he says, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in surah Lizarraga attained Musa Kitab which I know who the Lebanese right Allah that that resume mean doing you Akela Allah says And We gave most of the book which I know who the Lebanese right and we made it a guidance for the children of Israel, do not take a welkeys Do not rely on anyone other than Allah. So we learned that it is worship, and Allah subhanaw taala. He says

00:06:28--> 00:06:36

in Surah Toba verse 129. For interval Luvable, has to be Allah La ilaha illa, who either you talk to a horrible option only.

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

If they turn away from you say, Allah is sufficient for me.

00:06:43--> 00:06:50

There is nothing worthy of worship except for him. I lay He took upon him I rely and he is the Lord of the great throne.

00:06:52--> 00:07:28

And so the first pillar of Tawakkol is knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala. When I know who Allah Subhana Allah is that I am comfortable relying on him. And Allah Subhana Allah describes himself in that versus being gullible. I'll share all the He is the Lord of the great throne, the province of Allah it is and then tells us that he has been given permission to speak about one of the carriers of the throne, this great throne What is this great throne that Allah is describing? The province of Elijah is the name said, I was given permission to speak about one of the carriers of the throne what is between their ear lobe, and their shoulder blade is like the distance between 500 years

00:07:28--> 00:07:58

journey. These are vast, vast creatures and Allah subhanaw taala uses them to carry the vastness of His creation, the vastness of the throne. When a person understands the greatness of the throne, it is indicative to us of the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada and that is the one whom Allah subhanaw taala is commanding you to rely on. He says Rob will mercilessly will mother in law, a law in law who is as if a person is saying, Oh Allah, what are your qualifications for me to rely on you? What's your CV?

00:07:59--> 00:08:02

And Allah subhana wa Tada says, He's the Lord of the East in the West.

00:08:03--> 00:08:32

That's who he is. There's nothing worthy of worship except for him. So take him as the one who you rely on Allah subhanaw taala are the second pillar of telecoil is to seek the means is to seek the means. And so servitude is not that a person simply believe in Allah Subhana Allah data and not work the province of Allah Allah has sent him says in the Hadith, it's reported by Timothy It's the famous hadith of Ramadan. He says hello and welcome to Kelowna Allah Allah hepato a coolie. If you

00:08:34--> 00:08:43

know and Nakamoto culture, Allah Allah, if you relied upon Allah Subhana Allah hepatomegaly as he deserves to be relied upon, then he would provide for you like he provides for the birds.

00:08:45--> 00:09:23

Every day they go out hungry and they come back full. We all see birds and how they search for food they spend the entire day looking, searching, pecking at the ground, the province of Allah they send them to describe that as true to a Quran Allah, true to a Quran Allah is not that a person simply ask Allah subhanaw taala rely upon Allah subhanaw taala and not go out and put forward the means the act of work that is required to actualize what it is that you are seeking, true to according Allah subhanaw taala is that a person goes out seeking the means, but not relying on them with their heart and that a person relies upon Allah subhana data with their heart but their hands are busy and so to

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

what good is that your hands are busy but your heart is still your heart is attached to Allah subhanho data it never leaves that station but your hands are very busy seeking what Allah subhanaw taala has put forth in this earth for you to actualize what it is that you are seeking. The third step or the third pillar that the scholars mentioned is for a person to be pleased with the results. The third pillar of Taqwa is that a person be pleased with the results even to me it says whoever has to look good before the incident and is pleased after it. That person has performed servitude. That person has performed servitude, that I have to work with him Allah subhanaw taala beforehand

00:10:02--> 00:10:11

I try my best to bring relief. I try my best to bring assistance, I try my best to protect myself or protect my community.

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

And if any harm comes along the way

00:10:17--> 00:10:48

that I am content and pleased with Allah subhanaw taala this decree, if I have to upgrade before the action, and I have contentment with Allah Subhana Allah after the action, then that person has actualized servitude to Allah subhanaw taala of him in the face he says, There are three verses from the Quran that made me independent of all creation. It made me not in need of anyone. The first he says is a sort of universe 107 Williams ask Allah who be literally falaqa Shiva Fela cash if Allahu Allahu

00:10:49--> 00:10:52

if Allah subhanaw taala were to touch you with adversity.

00:10:53--> 00:11:29

There is no Remover of it except for him. And if we're a unit could be hated fell out deliberately and if Allah subhanaw taala wants goodness for you, then there is no one who can rip it who can return that goodness from you. And in saltwater verse two ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says my after he loudly Nassima Ramadan filarmonica Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada says, Whatever Allah grants the people of mercy, none can withhold it, and wherever he withholds none can release it and in solitude verse six ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, well I'm I mean that but if you are the Illa, Allah Allah He skua and there is no creature on this earth, except that Allah Subhana Allah data provides for it.

00:11:30--> 00:11:39

Confidence in Allah subhanaw taala is that a person knows that this script of theirs has been written by Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanaw taala is more merciful to us than we are to ourselves.

00:11:41--> 00:11:57

And that Allah subhanaw taala desires goodness for us and He is the most knowledgeable and that Allah Subhana Allah is Allah thief. You know, the scholars they mentioned when you look at this name of Allah, Allah Teef, that if you want to understand Allah subhanaw taala being Latif for his slaves, then you simply look at the story of use of it Salah

00:11:58--> 00:12:36

and use of La salaam goes through a journey in that Surah that is related to by everybody who goes through hardship, everybody who's ever suffered imprisonment, everyone who's ever suffered false accusations, everyone who's ever suffered harm, they connect with the story of Yusuf and from the outside looking in, it looks like his story just keeps getting worse and worse and worse. He goes from having a loving family and brothers who betray Him and being thrown into well, and that's horrible. And then he goes into enslavement in Egypt at night as horrible and then as a slave, he gets seduced in the house of the one who he is in her care. And that is horrible. And then as a

00:12:36--> 00:12:45

slave he enters into prison doesn't get worse than that. And yet we see that Allah subhanaw taala is maneuver and use of it is set up in every step of the way.

00:12:47--> 00:12:52

So that he can reach the culmination of his story what Allah subhanaw taala had written for him.

00:12:54--> 00:13:19

And that is for him to have authority in the land. And so use of violence that I'm at the end of his story in the 100 verses of Surah Yusuf when he says that my lord was good to me when he brought me out of prison and he brought you out of it. But he says in not ability fully Maya Shah, he says My Lord is Latif for whoever he wishes we ask Allah so He did that that looks b upon our brothers and sisters in philosophy and and everywhere according Massey Master Master for a while they were looking for

00:13:23--> 00:13:55

him they lost a lot salam ala Rasulillah, while at the same same cathedra there are lots of moments that the Quran mentions that are moments of Taqwa of them is when you seek victory and relief, that becomes a moment of Torquil Allah subhanaw taala says, you know, so Kamala for la vida welcome, Luke confirming the Libyan solo command budget, while Allah He filet mignon, if Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you. But if he should forsake you who is there that can aid you after him and upon Allah, let the believers rely, that is a station of reliance, and when the people turn away from you,

00:13:57--> 00:14:34

Allah Subhana Allah says, For intoa low for what has to be Allah La ilaha illa who Allah He took her to horrible ocean I'll leave in sort of the Toba verse 129 if they turn away from you say sufficient for me as Allah, there is no deity except for him on him I have relied upon Allah is the Lord of the great throne. And when Destiny arrives ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, who lay you'll see him and Ilana cuttable Allahu Allah Now who am Allah and Allah Allah He for the moon, Allah say say never will we be struck by anything other than what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for us. He is our protector and upon Allah subhana Dilaudid the believers rely and also when a person realizes that there is no

00:14:34--> 00:14:49

one that they should rely on other than Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allah Allahu Allahu Allah, He took us to Allah He metab say He is my Lord, there is no deity except for him. Upon him I rely and to Him is my return. And finally, when a person fears the harm of their enemies,

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

that they rely upon Allah in salted Natl verse 99, Allah Subhana Allah says it no who lays the household on an island Levine meanwhile Allah behemoth collude indeed there

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

is no authority meaning for Shavon over those who have believed and Rupiah lie upon their Lord, so we ask Allah azza wa jal to allow us to hear the speech and follow the best of it.
