00:00:41--> 00:00:45

la mama Yatta Allah rasool Allah who forgot the Pfizer, Fosun Alima and my bad appraisers due to Allah. We seek His guidance and his forgiveness that we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires.

00:01:22--> 00:01:36

whom Allah guides no one can misguide. And whom you allow us to be misled. No one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah alone, having no partners, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his perfect slave and messenger.

00:01:37--> 00:01:46

Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, Oh you who believe. Fear Allah as he deserves to be feared, and do not die except in a state of Islam.

00:01:47--> 00:02:23

Oh you who believe, fear Allah, as he deserves to be feared, and do not die except in a state of Islam. And Allah says, Oh, mankind, Fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and produce from that soul its mate, and made from their men, 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, he will correct for you your deeds and forgive you your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger,

00:02:25--> 00:02:32

then they are indeed victorious. To proceed. We are still in the aftershocks

00:02:33--> 00:02:39

of the earthquake that affected our brothers and sisters in the regions of Turkey and Syria.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

And we are still asking Allah azza wa jal, they have mercy on their debt

00:02:45--> 00:02:56

and heal their wounded and replace them with better but I wanted to remind my brothers and sisters, that the aftershocks reached us

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

and that we are tested to

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

and these incredible events

00:03:05--> 00:03:16

have been brought to us sometimes live and many times in full picture on social media.

00:03:18--> 00:03:25

And these images that we have consumed, and these videos that we have consumed,

00:03:26--> 00:03:40

have exposed certain qualities that we have with regards to the belief that we have in a number of Allah azza wa jal just qualities. Allah has power.

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

Allah has wisdom.

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

And Allah azza wa jal has mercy, these attributes of Allah and to some degree for some people, it has exposed deficiencies in those beliefs. And Allah azza wa jal is power. And Allah azza wa jal is wisdom. And in Allah azza wa jal has mercy. And so in this brief hook by Inshallah, to Allah, I wanted to discuss a number of issues that we have to believe in as Muslims.

00:04:13--> 00:04:25

And the first thing even before that, I want to say that a person needs to be cautious of even consuming these images. Just like when you go on TV,

00:04:26--> 00:04:58

or on any channel, any programming, there's some sort of rating, viewer discretion, discretion is advised. This is intended for mature audiences, watching these horrific images for a person to properly be able to process what they are seeing, they have to have an emotion that is mature, they have to have a knowledge of Allah Zoda that is mature. They have to have a foundational belief that is strong enough that it not be shaken, and if a person feels that their faith is not strong enough to be able to

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


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

their knowledge of Allah azza wa jal is not strong enough to be able for them to consume this in a in a correct way, in a healthy way, then they need to avoid these images. It is better for them it is better for their heart than for them to put themselves in a faith crisis.

00:05:17--> 00:05:22

There are some people when they see these images, they start asking the question why? How could God allow this to happen?

00:05:25--> 00:05:29

How is God merciful? If these children are dying under the rubble,

00:05:30--> 00:05:46

even Mr. Udo will be allowed. He has a very profound statement. He says, For me to buy onto a Gemorah had that tablet. I have the Ilia mean an Akula li che in Kavala later who me are going

00:05:48--> 00:05:56

for me to buy onto an ember coal burning hot for me to bite onto it until it is cold is more beloved to me

00:05:57--> 00:06:03

than for me to say about something that Allah has decreed. I wish that it didn't happen.

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

And so number one, Allah Subhana Allah Allah has power.

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

Allah azza wa jal he says,

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

well then

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

you don't

00:06:16--> 00:06:19

own the hara for Jana, ha ha, see, you then can I'm telling you

00:06:20--> 00:06:41

can lie. They can force through it. They call me a Quran. Allah says, and it's people until it's people supposed that they had capability over the land. And then our command came by night or by day, and we made it scattered like it was a harvest as if it had not flourished the day before. First do we explain in detail the science for people who give thought

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

the most beautiful, the most lavish the most developed the most established cities on this earth?

00:06:50--> 00:07:23

The most structured buildings in the world. If Allah subhanaw taala this command comes it could be like it didn't exist. Allah says put who will cause you to Allah Yeah, but as I click on that, it would really come. Oh, yeah, Lisa, come here and we did about the combats about on location. Oh, sorry for it. Home. You have Cahoon Allah say he is the one able to send upon your affliction from above you or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you so you become sects and make you taste the violence of one another. Look how we diversify the signs that they may understand. Allah azza wa jal has power

00:07:25--> 00:07:39

over overpowers every system, every warning system, every alarm system, every structure, Allah as soon as power is absolute, a person should never ever feel secure from the power of Allah.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

Allah Subhana Allah Dinah's wisdom,

00:07:43--> 00:07:49

you see some of the comments of people, and I want you to pay attention to our comments before the comments of anybody else.

00:07:50--> 00:08:06

That nothing escaped from our tongues that is challenging of Allah as against wisdom, a person presenting themselves as if they're God. Why did this happen to these people? Why couldn't this have well, why couldn't they have been? Why did they? Why did 1000s of people pass away?

00:08:09--> 00:08:18

Allah azza wa jal is the most wise and we believe that Allah azza wa jal decree for ourselves is better than if we had written our own scripts for our lives.

00:08:20--> 00:08:31

And the third, or when a person says haram haram for who Allah azza wa jal says lives at home if I were homeless, I don't. And the third is, is belief in Allah azza wa jal is mercy.

00:08:34--> 00:09:11

belief in Allah azza wa jal, His mercy, that when Allah azza wa jal decrees that he is a man, whether that is a loss in my own person, whether it's as a loss in my own health, whether that's a loss in my own wealth, whether it's a loss in my happiness, all that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada decrees for me is good. Whether I recognize it or not, because it is coming from Iran. It is coming from a Rahim it is coming from a roof, Abubakar the ALLAH and he says laughing and if you hate him by the who know well I shot with he shoved him by the agenda. There is no good in any good that leads to the hellfire and there is no evil in any evil that leads to paradise. And we know that the prophets

00:09:11--> 00:09:49

of Allah do send them he says the shahada outcomes that the murders are five and of the people that the province little lady said and describes you. He described the person who dies from a plague and he described the person who dies from stomach illness and he described the person who dies from Allah duck from drowning and he's a slide would head to me the person who dies from a collapse of a building on them. And the province level ally de Sena finally says was shahidul PCB Lila and for a person to enter into paradise through any disaster is better for them than remaining in this world. But we believe in Lara of Allah azza wa jal, this is something that gives us it gives us consolation

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

when a person goes through any difficulty in life.

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

And also what this

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

this experience what this calamity

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

exposed also is a number of challenges that we may have with regards to our theology. Number one

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


00:10:14--> 00:10:15

attachment to the dunya.

00:10:17--> 00:10:49

Or the belief that the dunya in and of itself is a place of residence, and a place that was supposed to be perfect. Allah Azza says in Surah Al Kahf right at the beginning in Ghana, model of the zenith Allah, Allah says we have made what is on the earth and adornment for its why so you can live here forever. Allah says Lena bloom Are you mastered Ramona way? Nyla Yeah, Mia how sorry then to Rosa. Allah subhana wa Tada says, we created this world this entire place was created to be a testing ground.

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

Under the Huracan moto will hire Atelier blue.

00:10:54--> 00:11:00

Allah, Allah says in surah mulk, the One who created death and life to test you. This entire world is an exam.

00:11:02--> 00:11:13

And we are required to live in this world for however long Allah azza wa jal has decreed for us to live in this world, just enough for us to pass this exam. Many of us harbor died young.

00:11:15--> 00:11:24

Why the media below the line who died in his 30s there is no righteousness or go for that makes a person live for an extended period of time.

00:11:25--> 00:11:32

Death comes to the righteous Muslim young and it may be delayed from the most disbelieving of the disbelievers

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

but everyone is tested.

00:11:36--> 00:11:41

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a row hell kudos never the theory

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

that struck me like this.

00:11:45--> 00:11:49

He says no. So what we believe is that there's nobody who passes too soon.

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

And we need to be careful of even the phrases that we utter, they're gone too soon, they passed away too soon.

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

They didn't deserve to die.

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

The province of allied and seven says no soul passes.

00:12:04--> 00:12:09

Until it has completed two things. It's risk and its lifespan

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

and what we are commanded to do for Tukwila who edge benefit follow up.

00:12:14--> 00:12:17

There are people who passed away

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

in these earthquakes and Allah so just selected them for agenda.

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

And there are some people who are 1000s of miles away.

00:12:29--> 00:12:34

And these earthquakes were a test for them, and through which they spoke words

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

of criticism, spoke words of disbelief, through which they may enter into the hellfire.

00:12:42--> 00:12:49

The province little light here send them said that a person may speak a word mean Sati LA, ya la you'll kill her ban.

00:12:50--> 00:12:59

A person may speak a word from the anger of Allah azza wa jal and they don't pay attention. It's just a tweet. It's just a comment. It's just in a WhatsApp group somewhere, or it's maybe out loud.

00:13:01--> 00:13:04

And because of that statement, they enter into the Hellfire

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

for Yahoo, EBI, Elena.

00:13:09--> 00:13:27

And so we need to check, even with regards to our own hearts, what our response is, the dunya was never meant to be a place of perfection. The dunya was always meant to be a place of test. And the dunya was never meant to be a great experience for everyone.

00:13:29--> 00:13:53

We have sometimes an idealistic nature of what life should be the pursuit of happiness, I deserve to be happy in this life. I deserve to have everything that the American Dream promises. I need to have a good family two and a half children. I need to have a house by this age I need to have be all of us are wealthy and healthy. And if not, then I might be angry because I feel entitled.

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

But Allah azza wa jal

00:13:58--> 00:14:06

is not asked about what he does. And he is the owner of this world and everything in it, and we are His servants and he does with us what he wishes.

00:14:08--> 00:14:34

Allah azza wa jal says what a wn Nagambie che immunol Hovi will do anyone up to the mill and while he will unfussy with Tamara Weber she decided in, Allah says we will test you, for sure. Allah says Allah, Allah in Santa Fe covered in salt better. Allah says we've created man to be in a state of turmoil. That's the reality. The reality is everybody has problems. However many people are in this misery right now. Every single one of us has problems every single one of us because Allah Azza wa Taala in Santa Fe covered we've created man to be in a state of turmoil. That's the dunya

00:14:36--> 00:14:52

it's not the highlights that you see on social media. These are not real many times and even if they are real many times they're temporary. How many times have you yourself seen people gather together to take a picture there, everybody gets together, everybody smiles. And then as soon as the picture is over, everybody goes back to being miserable.

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

And then we compare our lives to these highlight reels of other people. And I say how come I'm not happy like so.

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

Once I was happy, I'm looking at his his Facebook posts and his Instagram posts and he's always so happy.

00:15:05--> 00:15:50

That's not real. The reality is, is that everybody has problems and Allah Azza says, and I will test you be che in mental health you will not see me that I'm YT when I was with fear and hunger and loss of lives, and loss of wealth will miss you to Siberian and glad tidings congratulate the patient Alladhina either Asaba to masiva that when they experience a calamity those patient once they say in Atilla una de La Jolla. They say this phrase in Atilla Hua in ideologic, own to Allah we belong and to Him, we return to Allah we belong I experienced the calamity, I say to myself, I belong to Allah.

00:15:53--> 00:16:21

I don't say I'm entitled to this, I deserve better. I say I belong to Allah, Allah took away my parent, I belong to Allah and they belong to Allah, Allah took away my loved one, I belong to Allah and they belong to Allah bless you to slop it in. And Lillian al Sabah, Tomas Eva to Cairo in 99. I belong to Allah, and we're all returning to Allah. And so I have three things I have to be attentive to, I have to be pay attention to being patient, and enduring. And number two, I have to recognize my obedience to Allah subhanaw taala my servitude to Allah.

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

I belong to Allah.

00:16:25--> 00:16:36

And number three, that we're all going back to Allah. And so if I impatient, and if I express the servitude, then I am going to go back to a Lord who is Katie.

00:16:37--> 00:16:43

And he is going to reward me for this patience, and that he has actually prepared something that is much much better

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

than this fleeting life.

00:16:47--> 00:16:50

We're in the data last era law he had Haiwan.

00:16:52--> 00:17:01

Allah says this dunya Allah says the hereafter is the true life, if they only knew and that is what Allah azza wa jal prepared us for a quarter master Master Master.

00:17:16--> 00:17:21

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while listening to make it.

00:17:23--> 00:17:31

The last thing that I want to mention is the importance of this concept of fear.

00:17:33--> 00:17:37

When a person witnesses the signs of Allah, and when a person

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

sees Allah azza wa jal is power.

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

Allah says woman notice it will be at latter, who if

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

we only send the signs to invoke fear.

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

And fear has become something that's removed from our vernacular and modernity.

00:18:01--> 00:18:09

We talk about loving God, we talk about having hope in God, but nobody wants to talk about fearing God, no one knows. We're past that.

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

But Allah azza wa jal

00:18:14--> 00:18:15

mentions the Hellfire so much

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

and you hear at the beginning of every hope but oh you believe fear Allah Oh you who believe fear Allah Oh mankind fear Allah yeah you already know Allah haka to

00:18:27--> 00:18:57

do not die except in a state of Islam. Hold on to this Deen. Don't let yourself exit from this Deen as long as you are alive. And the Sahaba or the Latin who used to fear this so much the province of Allah they're synonyms most constant throughout was yarmulke liberal Colusa idealic Oh, turn of hearts make my heart firm upon your religion. I have to live in your own model of the Allah I know. And I have to live near and I'm gonna have to live near Alma. He's the son of a father. He's a great companion. He stood on the mountain of Oliver, as Imam Malik mentions in a motto and he says oh Allah.

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

As you guided me to Islam,

00:19:02--> 00:19:08

then do not allow me to leave Islam. Until I depart from this world.

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

Allow me to be a Muslim as long as I'm alive.

00:19:14--> 00:19:20

worshipping Allah as though again, fearing Allah azza wa jal loving Allah having hope in Allah.

00:19:22--> 00:19:59

And trusting Allah azza wa jal, his wisdom, trusting Allah loving and believing in Allah as we just mercy believing in Allah is there just power. As for the wisdoms behind these events, they are many, and I'm sure you've heard a number of them over the past week of them is that Allah azza wa jal allows for people to return to Him, of them is that Allah azza wa jal allows for martyrs to be taken and for him to choose of them is Allah as we get testing us to see how we're going to respond. And I'm sure many of you have given and many of you have supported many different projects, and that is all important as well.

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

that we continue to give and to give and to give and to support and to support and to support. But what I wanted to share briefly in this Koba are some of the theological implications, some of the aspects of our iman and our faith that I wanted us to pay attention to pay attention to with regards to ourselves first, before looking at the comments of others, and we ask Allah azza wa jal to accept from our brothers and sisters who have passed away in Turkey and Syria, and to replace those who have been lost for their families and replace them with better and that Allah azza wa jal heal the hearts of those who have lost family members and that Allah azza wa jal to heal the injured and that

00:20:37--> 00:21:12

Allah replaced them with homes better than their homes and businesses better than their businesses. And that Allah azza wa jal allows it to be a cause of entrance into paradise for all of us and that Allah azza wa jal make the best of our days our last days in the best of our moments today that we meet Allah Allah manana Celica Jana Makara, Bella Hammond Korean Mohammed, when Ruby came in and now Rama corroboree Han and codeine Rahman, Allah Almighty and husana Taqwa has Edelman Sokka Antonio how Mola Aloha Maximilian Amica sciatica Madhavi Ben and I will be in a Marcia tick when it comes to the Laguna Beach and Netta community Athena Moto, it will be hard and I must say but dunya or Medina
