Echo

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

show

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

this is fitness

00:00:53--> 00:01:13

as a fitness and we see in the stories of the audience lay man Allah gave them abundance of wealth and power. We speak about slay Manor Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the wind. And Allah gave the jinn as servants to Suleiman so they can do what Suleiman orders them to do.

00:01:14--> 00:01:45

And then Allah said what mailloux Allah de Buddha shukra for kalila min Eva da Shaku and you should fulfill and you will fulfill the gratitude that you owe to me. And only few of my slaves actually fulfill their duty of showing gratitude, or thanks to Allah subhana wa Tada. And now we go to the second and immediately after both places, we follow this story of a ubani his Salah, because he was tested with the opposite. He was tested with Bella.

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

He was tested with calamity.

00:01:49--> 00:01:59

And a lot of times we actually relate a lot to you. He gets sick, to relate to you. You left some money, you're late to a

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

family's touch with adversity will relate to you.

00:02:04--> 00:02:09

But very rarely, when we are in good shape, we relate to students when a man

00:02:11--> 00:02:18

so that is why it is important that Allah Subhana Allah mentions that would insulate men first pay attention.

00:02:19--> 00:02:29

And Allah instructed his prophets Allah Lani was send them and this Alma letter would deny naika ilimitado maternity as virgin men of Zara tell Haiti dounia Nina, Tina,

00:02:30--> 00:02:36

what is kurapika Cairo Africa, do not stretch your eyes and look to what Allah has given other people.

00:02:38--> 00:02:57

sacrifice and hair to dunya enjoyment and ornaments of this dunya Lena, Tina on fee it is their test. That's their trial. So when you look at someone who has a lot of wealth, a lot of happen things are going really well. don't envy them. That's their test.

00:02:58--> 00:03:29

Allah said let them go. Go stretch your eyes to that look what Allah has given you. Be busy with your own test. If you are taking a test in college or school, you worrying what the other person is doing there or you need to worry about yourself. And all of a sudden that's what you need to do is what tells the lies giving you in this dunya good or bad health or sickness, adversity or prosperity. be busy with yourself. That's your test. You need to pass to worry about the others

00:03:30--> 00:03:46

to help the believers you know everyone passed their own test. Allah said well let me deny Kayla Montana's virgin Nina sorrowful heritage dounia Lena Tina houfy surtass that's that's what Allah has chosen for them. And you don't know if that's good or bad.

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

Wealth can be bad.

00:03:50--> 00:04:05

Wealth can be bad for our own. wealth was really terrible fulfill our power was was the worst thing that that person could have had for on on the Day of Judgment would have wished that he was the poorest of the poor, and not have to do what he has done.

00:04:08--> 00:04:18

In an insanity era, an era history, no human being can transgress and become a partier. When he feels that he doesn't need anyone.

00:04:19--> 00:04:27

Remember in Surah zylka when that person who was wealthy walked into his garden, the halogen meta or Volume One NFC column.

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

He keeps,

00:04:34--> 00:04:40

because he felt that he is so powerful and so rich. And that is that was his test.

00:04:41--> 00:04:45

That was his problem was not his. It was not a good thing for him.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

So that's how we should look at everything in life. When I blew up Campbell hired he was showery fitness. Everything good or bad is not but it tests for you. And Allah said this whole existence is nothing but a test.

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

For us, Hola, como tal hetalia blue welcome,

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

Allah, Allah created life and death, this whole thing that you see around you, nothing but a test to see who will do better. So let's see how you did.

00:05:17--> 00:05:25

Let's see how you passed history. So Allah said in our agenda who saw the raw nivola

00:05:26--> 00:05:29

map this is coming from Allah and what an honor nim, Allah,

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

the best service

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

in our world.

00:05:37--> 00:05:51

This is the Medal of Honor that a you've deserved, and it was given to him by a loss of Hannon with had and recorded in the book that wouldn't be recited to the Day of Judgment, the final revelation, the word of our last panel town and this Quran.

00:05:53--> 00:06:37

Now, when we read into the story of you know, like, if you go to the funeral by hand for a full body, or tafsir, Ibn katheer, all of the automatic efficacy of the traditional books, the Basic Books of Tafseer, you will see a lot of details of that, who are you was what was his status of wealth and health and happiness, and then what happened to him. However, the majority of this scholar agree that most of the details are throughout India, are taken from the books of the People of the Book are taken from the majority taken from the people of the book and the students of some of the Tabby.

00:06:39--> 00:07:17

So we will go over that quickly. But just to understand that, when a lot, again, the rule is, but Allah doesn't give you the intricate details of thing, it's not that important for you. And when it is needed a lot tells you exactly the motion and and how people reacted. When we were studying the surah, of fuse of Allah His cellar, Allah in certain positions will give you a very close details about the dream and exactly and all of this and how it was transmitted. You see, it was a lot of detail on that. And here the basic idea

00:07:18--> 00:07:44

is affliction and tribulation that went on multiple levels, until Allah tested his slave a tube into the core into the heart to see if the heart has faith in it has firm belief or not, and we know you passed. But the test was a test and his health and body. It was a test of his wealth. And it was a test that afflicted his family.

00:07:45--> 00:07:47

So when it comes down to

00:07:53--> 00:08:04

the test of a new battery cell, and we know from the from the revelation from the flow of these verses that a tube, enjoyed health and strength.

00:08:05--> 00:08:09

And you've enjoyed a large

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

family, a supportive family, he had children,

00:08:15--> 00:08:28

he had, he had what Alalu well, Benjamin as a network engineer, Allah said, and Manuel venues in Indonesia, wealth and children are the ornamentation of this dunya.

00:08:29--> 00:08:33

This is the the essence of of all prosperity.

00:08:34--> 00:08:42

Whether you go to a tribal society or a civil society, it's the same money and power is the essence of all of that.

00:08:44--> 00:09:16

And then the children and children in a lot of traditional societies are money and power. The more children you have, the more power you have. And you've had it all. He was a prophet, a progeny of a prophet of profits had noble see his he was wealthy. So you can imagine his status and his people. Imagine, you know, so many people that are wealthy, they enjoy the respect just because of their wealth. And this is a fact of life. Wealthy people enjoy the respect of society.

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

And they make statement according to their wealth.

00:09:21--> 00:09:40

You know, wealthy people are famous people, for no other reason. And then you get powerful people and influential people that are also important people. And then you get righteous people and leaders of the society that are also influential and important people. And you was all of that combined.

00:09:41--> 00:09:42

And then he had youth

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

and he had strength and he had health

00:09:48--> 00:09:52

and then the affliction of our last panel data starts and the test for him starts.

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

Now how did it happen?

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

You will read different ways of

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

How it happened one of them, one is mentioned in the body that is shaytaan wanted to challenge you. And Allah gave shape on the power to be able to destroy the wealth and the Health and Family of the EU to test the amount of a valley center. And there is a very long story about how it exactly happened in a property.

00:10:27--> 00:11:05

And just one important notice there that when you see Henderson Mohammed Hussain in Bukhari, he will say it is upon Mohammed bin Salman Buhari. That's a different Buhari from Mohammed bin snail go, hi. Okay. So when you read that and sort of an in depth zero band for public interest, pay attention that that doesn't mean that this story is coming from spy and Buhari. It's not from there. You've as mentioned in a couple of Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari, but none of them about the details of how the affliction happened to you Valley Salaam Allahu Allah, and if anybody founds out different way, just like Nina teaches me about that.

00:11:09--> 00:11:24

The other story that you see in there is Allah has afflicted you, gradually by the loss of one thing after the other, to test his patience, and to test his endurance. First, he lost as well.

00:11:25--> 00:11:29

Then his family started leaving him or dying.

00:11:30--> 00:11:47

There's no agreement of exactly what happened to them. And then his body finally was afflicted, where he became so sick, that he could not make a living. And his wife is patient Why has to actually work and support him.

00:11:48--> 00:12:05

Now that by itself, for a man of the status and the dignity of a ballet, his center is a tribulation and a trial all by itself. And it could have been more painful than actually physical pain, is to see his own wife suffering,

00:12:07--> 00:12:08

just to be able to feed him.

00:12:09--> 00:12:23

And even Kathy even mentioned that she worked as a servant in some houses, that she had to sell her hair. So she can buy food and bring food to the table so she can take care of you Valley center.

00:12:29--> 00:12:47

It was mentioned that was the long braids of hair, that she sell one at a time to feed her, her husband and you have a salon and you might imagine just the pain and the suffering that a new ballet salon was going through.

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

Now

00:12:50--> 00:12:56

for some people who are not who are poor, it is very painful to be poor.

00:12:57--> 00:13:00

But it's not as painful if they were rich before.

00:13:01--> 00:13:21

Hammer Aziza commingle, have mercy on a wealthy person that becomes poor, it's very painful, if they have tasted wealth and prosperity. And then to get to the status of poverty, it's much more painful. And it's much more hurtful than to be born into that.

00:13:23--> 00:13:26

And those who've been sick, born sick.

00:13:27--> 00:13:41

It is not it is hard. It's extremely hard. But it's not as hard as people who tasted what it means to have strengthened health. Those who never had any children, it's painful. But it's not as painful for people who have children and then lost them.

00:13:43--> 00:14:07

So you was afflicted in the in the hardest way possible, because he had all of that. And he had the best of all of that. And then he lost all of it. And then turned the other way, turned 180 degrees to the negative part, that he had nothing and he was in constant pain. He was in constant physical pain. And he was in constant emotional pain.

00:14:08--> 00:14:15

And he's he was it was in constant pain, just seeing his wife and his family going through what they have to get through.

00:14:18--> 00:14:22

And then an event happened with his wife that made us angry.

00:14:24--> 00:14:29

And it is really not well known. What made us angry at his wife.

00:14:30--> 00:14:39

There is a lot of stories that you will see there. That one of them is that he was angry that she smelled her hair would that his permission.

00:14:40--> 00:14:52

He was angry that she had to do certain jobs that he would not permit her to to do. And there is one narration that just seeking remedy for a you that instead of

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

she went to a person that would give this cure

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

through other than Allah subhana wa tada and at least was in that role at least was in pastoring in that particular role to sway her from the heat. And that is one narration that is that is out there a Long Island. But she did something that you ballet is Salim and his sickness and his pain, he got irritated with his wife, and he swore that he will hit her 100 times

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

when his health is bad,

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

and the days went on,

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

and that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala said about a youth

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

that

00:15:49--> 00:16:07

finally it got to the point that his wife, and then he said it was the moment that he saw the head of his wife without hair. And many said that it was that moment when he lashed with his wife. And he felt that he felt fear that if his affliction continued,

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

that she would be lost, that she would be

00:16:12--> 00:16:20

swerved from the way of our last panel dad, that at that point, you turn to a law

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

and he said,

00:16:24--> 00:16:41

and Nima sent me a book, one dot hamara him. That was the entire draft of Allah, his Salah, it's what a beautiful day to learn from you. What did he say? He said, Nina sent me a book, I have been touched, I have been afflicted by harm.

00:16:43--> 00:16:51

I was seized by the stress of Doris anything that is harm, harmful or painful.

00:16:53--> 00:16:55

So he said, This is my condition.

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

And you see it.

00:16:58--> 00:17:03

And name is Tanya door. And then here is your condition your loved one.

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

And you are the Most Merciful of anyone that would give me mercy.

00:17:10--> 00:17:14

And in that it is it's absolute self hate. He said, I'm not going to anyone but you.

00:17:15--> 00:17:28

And then he did not ask Allah for any particular thing. He didn't say, Oh Allah give me back my money. Allah gives me back my wealth, or Allah gives me back my family. Allah gives me back my health, well, just to relieve the pain from me.

00:17:29--> 00:17:32

He just said you are the most versatile one.

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

My condition is, as you see, and your condition is, as I know,

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

you know what's happening to me and I know who you are, and that's a lot.

00:17:44--> 00:17:45

And that is better

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

than anything he could have done. He could have said all I just relieve my pain, you would have gotten that.

00:17:52--> 00:18:12

Right. He said, just give me my family back, give me my wealth back. But Allah subhanho wa Taala when he is being called upon His mercy doesn't only give back what he has taken from you, he said FACA Schaffner, the human body the first thing that happened is anything that afflicted you was taken away from him, was completely cured.

00:18:14--> 00:18:27

Well, I say no, Allah will miss lahoma. And then we gave him back his family and the like of their their off just twice as twice as much as he is lost was given back to a value seller.

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

So it's always better to leave it to allow what he wants to give us.

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

Right, invoke His mercy, invoke your

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

invoke your condition upon him.

00:18:41--> 00:18:54

And we have to call to Allah and humbleness and humility. We really have to have if we are to have a broken heart before anyone we have had before Allah. Remember iacobelli salaam in Surah Yusuf.

00:18:55--> 00:19:02

In my school, Betsy or Hosni the law, said I'm not complaining to you I complain only to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:03--> 00:19:15

And to show a lot humility is the right thing to do. But don't show it to anyone else. And if you are to ask ask Allah, if you are to seek help seek it only from Allah.

00:19:18--> 00:19:26

That's the hadith of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he does elta any law. Why is the standard the first time the law?

00:19:27--> 00:19:31

He only asked Allah and you only seek help from Allah and this is what you did.

00:19:33--> 00:19:56

And Allah said festa Gibney now, immediately between the word R Rahman r Rahim Allah Nina Rahim was immediately just completely, Allah said, Here it is. That's the job. No, no. Okay. Schaffner, the human body. What I say now Allah, Allah ma home, Rama tamina. Indiana. Mercy from Us was declared in IBD. And a reminder for the worshipers.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

What is the lesson in this in this verse?

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

It is for you to understand,

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

you worshippers throughout time to sell to an Allah, Allah to Allah and hurts This world is whenever you have an affliction turns to the to Allah. You turn to Allah and Allah will will answer that, and Allah will lift that calamity. And how did it happen?

00:20:22--> 00:20:39

Allah you and then this is the other verse, this is unsorted thought it's not about any messenia shape or no, because the same idea, he turned to a law and he said, any mess any a shape on will be looser than that a shape on has touched me with distress and torment.

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

He didn't say you have afflicted me.

00:20:44--> 00:20:47

So the shaytaan have afflicted me.

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

And

00:20:49--> 00:20:53

reflected on that he said what is the you? What does that mean?

00:20:54--> 00:21:00

And there are two two different interpretation. The first one is what you can see

00:21:01--> 00:21:15

in poverty and even Kathir shaitan actually caused that harm to you. He shaitan was able to get into a you and cause bodily harm and well enhances as well.

00:21:17--> 00:21:19

And the second interpretation of that,

00:21:21--> 00:21:39

that a shaytaan. The started given whispering around you to the Friends of you, and for the wife or for you is see what Allah is doing to his servants. See what Allah if Allah loves that you've you would not have done that.

00:21:41--> 00:21:55

So you've started her and you've been hurt by those words. Because people started doubting the face of a U shaped on started Say, say you was truly faithful. Allah would not have done that to him.

00:21:57--> 00:22:03

I say you because it's really a sincere servant of Allah Allah would not have afflicted him and we know that that's not true.

00:22:04--> 00:22:24

Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a thorough Cumberland, MD ambia the worst people that wouldn't be afflicted in this dunya RLM via the prophets of Allah. masala Hoon, then the righteous people, Muslim Central amset, then less than less than less the more Eman you have, the more tests you do and a half.

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

So this is what shaitan does to people

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

trying to reverse that picture. said if Allah loves you, he would not have done that to you.

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

And that's not true.

00:22:40--> 00:22:45

We never ask Allah Allah. Whenever asked I'm not tribulation. No, no, it happens to say it handed in.

00:22:46--> 00:22:56

When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was given the news that his grandson, son of Xena was dying, he said you go back and you tell her Leila in a half hour.

00:22:59--> 00:23:07

Tell her to Allah is what he has given and to allow us to steak. And everything is by measure with Allah. Allah knows what he's doing.

00:23:09--> 00:23:22

And this is how how a Muslim would face affliction in alila point la urogen everything so even as we are to Allah, and we all Allah is the return.

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

So shaitan touched you with that affliction. And he goes before online said and Nima Sania stray partner because of the way that the shaitan has touched me with torment and with the affliction. And then Allah said,

00:23:37--> 00:23:45

of code originally had tested and buried and tried to the ground with your foot. This is a spring of water washed out with it.

00:23:47--> 00:23:52

It's a cool water that came out. And unless it did, that water will kill you.

00:23:54--> 00:24:01

And even in that there is this beautiful image that he has the love can lift the calamity with two letters B couldn't

00:24:02--> 00:24:05

and it will be but all I want you to do your part.

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

He said kick the ground, get water out, wash yourself.

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

Do all of that. And Allah will lift the calamity from you.

00:24:17--> 00:24:22

So seek help. Meaning seek help from Allah, but help yourself.

00:24:25--> 00:24:30

have pelicula on upon Allah rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala but do your part.

00:24:33--> 00:24:41

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith that if you have true telecon upon Allah, you will be like the birds

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

that will do the Messiah. What are

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

the Hadith said that the birds that leave the nest hungry with empty stomach, but they come back to their nest. When fills filled with with food. This big pond I mean in the belly

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

are filled with food. But the key point here is the birds are leaving the nest.

00:25:06--> 00:25:11

They're flying out there searching for food, and allies providing

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

this is the truth, our code, the truth, our call is you do your part and Allah will guarantee

00:25:20--> 00:25:31

your risk for mom and dad but in front of the ilala my response is not anything, nothing alive on the face of the earth, unless Allah has guaranteed their risk their sustenance

00:25:33--> 00:25:54

and we have to do our part. So even when the cure comes to a UVA his center, it didn't just boom happen and allies more than able to do that. But he said, strike the ground, get the water out, wash yourself, have them tested on Daddy, don't shut off, drink out of that water and wash yourself with it.

00:25:56--> 00:26:04

And the cure was come from Allah. And then Allah said what will happen Allahu Allah. And we have given back his family as a gift

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

from Allah when we

00:26:09--> 00:26:28

met them in Ramadan, Mina, and and Allah doubled what he had before. Ramadan and mercy from Allah was the Claudio Deen Al Bab and a remembrance for those who heed those who contemplate on that story of a Balinese setup. And then there is that one thing that is left to do.

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

And you has made an oath

00:26:33--> 00:26:34

that he will strike his wife.

00:26:36--> 00:27:14

But now everything is back. And one of the stories that is narrated, that have been kept here is what his wife came back to the house, she was scared that she saw this handsome man in his house, this healthy gentleman, and she could recognize him knowing that her husband was so sick and had all these ulcers on his body and all of that and she was scared of him until Allah Subhana Allah brought him brought him back and and calmed her down. And she also had her youth back and had her health back. And that's how she doubled her family for a uvala insulin.

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

But now there is this issue that you've made an oath

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

that he has to fulfill.

00:27:23--> 00:27:30

And he's Allah subhana wa tada Allah His mercy gives him a way out. Unless it was via decal, Bilston.

00:27:32--> 00:27:49

Take a bundle of booth a block lm, remember that word in the story of fuse of booth is something that is the group of things that that is weak, and sort of irregular. So when you take a limb, it's a group of really very

00:27:51--> 00:28:01

weak Leaves of Grass, like long straw, something that is just not doesn't have that, that body to it.

00:28:03--> 00:28:45

Something that is doesn't have this strong substance. That's when when the people of the the, the around the king of Egypt, they sit on water, Helen has no substance, right has no strength. And abundance, is that straw that doesn't have much substance to it, he can just break it very easily doesn't have that much strength. So let's take a bundle 100 of those words are empty. He said I will strike you 100 times. But then all of a sudden just take this 100 and striker one time so she was stricken with 100 of those and do that while that's happening and fulfill your own and do not break your own.

00:28:46--> 00:29:11

Why Allah has fined him away out of this intelligent nahu father, because he was a truly father, near man. What an excellent slave to Omar in a word. he repented to Allah. And in from that verse, he also understand that he regretted and repented saying that Oh, saying what he said in a moment of

00:29:12--> 00:29:19

awkwardness in a moment of weakness that he wanted to strike his wife 100 times and he wanted a way out of this.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

Now this opened the door

00:29:22--> 00:29:45

for something that is really important for us to understand. And the football hadn't even been kathira in the book of puzzles. lambier commented on this a lot and that is the issue of anttila Sharia the issue of what is called as the summary Sharia Isla trick. It's people that do something in the Sharia, and they find a loophole

00:29:47--> 00:29:48

to

00:29:49--> 00:29:52

finding a loophole in the jurisprudence

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

to achieve a certain goal

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

and

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

this was actually

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

According to a lot earlier man, this was a law found a loophole for a you Bally's setup I used to actually fulfill what he said he should strike his wife 100 times a huge punishment, it probably she did not deserve.

00:30:14--> 00:30:16

And a lot found them away out of this.

00:30:17--> 00:30:31

Many of the LMS said that that is the only way that you can use such a loophole if you are present. And an example of that is really a beautiful and funny story that Abu hanifa Abu hanifa

00:30:32--> 00:30:55

man was involved in it during the time of Abu Jafar monsoon. We dry for the monsoon was the halifa was the best Khalifa and he was mad at his wife one time and out of his absolute fury and anger. He told her that she is divorced. Unless she does not sleep in His Kingdom tonight.

00:30:56--> 00:31:03

He said anti poverty phone in Good evening killing your divorce if he's sleeping my Dominion tonight

00:31:04--> 00:31:23

for his dominion was from China to Spain. She was in Baghdad, there's no way nothing 24 hour, they didn't have jumbo jets. Right that she can get out as the minion. And then he regretted he knew he did something wrong. So they called upon Abu hanifa They say he said I want to weigh out.

00:31:25--> 00:32:07

And our hanifa said that's easy. So he said Get your clothes get your stuff and come with a boy honey and honey fat takes her to the message it he says this message for Allah is not part of your kingdom. One message he then in that he felt that Allah had he said this is not your Dominion the best and he said she told her you sleep in MSG tonight and tomorrow that you go back to your husband and you're not that that mean was not you did not have you made did not make hence he did not break your vows. Because she did not sleep in your Dominion she slept in in Dominion of Allah subhana wa Tada. So there are elements that that that that these are things is to get the leavers out of

00:32:07--> 00:32:51

trouble when they get themselves into it. If it is feasible, then the only the only people of knowledge are allowed to work within those rules. But don't it's not us. It's not for the common people to have those hear those tricks, puncture. Yeah, because that's a very dangerous territory. But But the bottom line is that this particular incidence is how they base their knowledge upon is Allah subhanaw taala finds a way out for you. And Allah gives us way to find a way out for the believers if they get into some awkwardness of something that that they should not be in in the first place. It's not a knockoff of Sharia. It's not as the goals of jurisprudence to be in.

00:32:58--> 00:33:05

And it is also the one Hadees that that strike that really stands out in the in the forehead Bukhari

00:33:06--> 00:33:34

on the authority of Abu huraira of the long line. manana Yuba you William Tesler. Ariana, when you was naked and he was washing himself with that water that Allah Subhana Allah ordered him to strike out of the earth Harada he originally Girard in India have a cloud or heard or a flock of locusts of gold came upon a huge Valley his center.

00:33:36--> 00:34:08

He sold it he started accumulating that gold and his garments and adulthood Abuja you lm Monica matara, didn't I enrich you they they're not giving you so you don't have to really gather that golden in your Garmin and then he said Bella, or OBS or LA well I can learn in early unbox marketing, but I cannot have enough of the blessing. But you're sending me as a Baraka is a blessing and I know what you have sent me as an onion and go away. The word use anybody knows the word Baraka, what is it bark me.

00:34:09--> 00:34:48

Baraka as a verb means to settle down and to sit. When the camel sits there and stays there. They said the borrower can German the camel sits and stays. And the wealth that comes and goes fast, has no Baraka. Things that come and go, doesn't have any barakah in it, meaning it doesn't stay you don't benefit from it. And the food that doesn't benefit the body has no Baraka. But the things that that stays and benefit and then the benefit of it stays for a long time. That is what Babacan means.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

That's the actual meaning of linguistic meaning of the word product. So he said I know that that goal less lovingly and bureaucratic. I have I cannot have enough of this bottle.

00:35:01--> 00:35:04

Because whatever I'm having now that's not going to go away.

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

That is coming directly from the loss of Hannah.

00:35:10--> 00:35:58

And I also take a lot of ruling from this one Hadees. And one of them is there was a question is Can somebody, go to the bathroom, go to the shower and shower off naked? Can you take your clothes off in the shower? And actually this heavy gave the Rola The answer is a tube was washing out naked, it's in the headset, that you'll be tested early on, and when he took his clothes off, and he was showering himself and washing himself with that water that Allah ordered him to get out. So you know, a lot of Hadees that we read very fast, but the the experience I have in the mind of jurisprudence expert, they know how to extract a lot of ruling for us. So it is from the Hadith

00:35:58--> 00:36:09

inequality, we know that the the wealth that came back to you was an actual literally a shower of gold that almost panel data has given him

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

after he obeyed the orders of almost piano.

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

So now let's reflect

00:36:19--> 00:36:25

on the very important issues of en Bella. And

00:36:27--> 00:36:34

these are the two lessons or the two main ideas and the story of a young family his setup, affliction

00:36:35--> 00:36:47

and how we respond to affliction. What types of affliction we face in our lives, on what levels? And then how do we respond? How do we react to these afflictions.

00:36:49--> 00:36:57

Lots of hands like that. And so Atlanta booth says hours of learning shaytani r rajim. Alif. meme has even as

00:37:00--> 00:37:12

well a katana Latina mean comprehend la la mano more Latina, sodoku la elemental Kathy de la set up people think that they will be just left to say that we believe and they are not tested.

00:37:13--> 00:37:28

Indeed, we have tested those who are before them, au was tested. Yaqoob was tested, use of force tested, Ibrahim was tested. Luke was tested solid food No.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

Certainly Adam.

00:37:31--> 00:37:42

Allah says everyone has been tested. And the example that you see the profits are being tested. And they have received afflictions from multiple sides.

00:37:43--> 00:37:47

Like that wouldn't suit a man they were afflicted by wealth and prosperity and power.

00:37:49--> 00:37:54

And a tube was afflicted by what you see lack of health, lack of power, lack of money,

00:37:56--> 00:37:57

ruining his family.

00:37:59--> 00:38:07

So this is this enough that everyone will be afflicted, we all going to be tested, this is what life is all about.

00:38:08--> 00:38:15

And it can be on an individual level, we will be personally tested. And it can be on a family level.

00:38:16--> 00:38:23

And it can be on a community level. And it can be on this whole society. And then it can be on the entire

00:38:25--> 00:38:29

and sometimes you look around and you can see the entire room has been tested.

00:38:30--> 00:38:33

And people are being tested in the depth of their faith.

00:38:35--> 00:38:48

People are being tested, they say I mean some people are why I have this. People come to me and said Why is this happening to us? Are we on the right path? Is this the true religion or not? Why is this happening to us?

00:38:50--> 00:39:04

And we see how are you and the story of that you chiffon would come to people and he said, See if you was correct, that would not happen to if you was on the right path. He should not have been afflicted.

00:39:05--> 00:39:13

And unless otherwise, you're all going to be afflicted and affliction is a sign of faith and it is a test of faith.

00:39:15--> 00:39:24

Well Anna blue Allah compact and Elena Mujahideen and in como Swabian. In Morocco, we will test you so many so who strives and who is patient

00:39:26--> 00:39:30

and how you're going to deal with it. barkham How do you react to that test?

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

I'm asking

00:39:35--> 00:39:36

what a magical method

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

Do you think you can just walk into paradise and just walk into paradise? Just like this? This isn't sort of Bukhara what am yes eco methodology in a halloumi Coffee coma settlement, Sara Barbara was on zero. They were touched by Best Selling by hardship and the raw and harm was losing one day

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

Taken, the test of a law is not easy, because the reward is not cheap.

00:40:07--> 00:40:12

And I see lots of lawyers earlier. And I know a lot of law in general,

00:40:13--> 00:40:26

the reward of mine is very precious. So You Think You Can I mean, you your experience, you know, you use, you think that you want to just walk into a car dealership and walk out with a with a Rolls Royce, and just pay $5 for it

00:40:27--> 00:40:33

doesn't work like that. When you land methodology, so if you want to walk out with gender,

00:40:34--> 00:40:45

we have to pay the price sometime. And Allah chooses what he wants to like this with Allah chooses the best for us. We don't ask for the test, and we don't choose the test for ourselves.

00:40:46--> 00:41:01

What do you have? The akula rasuluh alladhina amanu, Muhammad, Allah. Allah said that the shaking and the hardship gets to the point that even the profit and the believer would say, when is the victory?

00:41:02--> 00:41:12

And then Allah answers Allah in nanosolar, mockery, indeed, the victory the support the help of allies close, just have patience.

00:41:17--> 00:41:18

The word ticknor.

00:41:21--> 00:41:39

Chan is a goldsmith if you go to the linguistic root of the word fitness fatahna is a goldsmith is someone that takes the ores and the gold dust and gets pure gold out of it. And to do that, what do they do?

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

It put it through the fire.

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

They heat it up.

00:41:46--> 00:41:55

And through the fire, the good metal comes out and exhibit or a jufa. Or just the dirt is washed out.

00:41:56--> 00:42:03

And that's what Fitness, Fitness hard slog going through the fire, it is a test.

00:42:04--> 00:42:07

But what comes out of it is pure gold.

00:42:08--> 00:42:27

And that's the actual meaning the linguistic meaning. And in every word in that you see in the core, and there is a root for it, why it's exactly used. And sometimes you can have two words that are really close in the in the actual Arabic meaning of it. Like the two words of love Farah, and Kapha.

00:42:29--> 00:42:30

What does they both mean?

00:42:31--> 00:43:00

The love Faraj and Kapha both means to cover up cetara hapa. If you look in an Arabic dictionary, you'll find that the mafara which just means forgive and Kapha course. So this belief, both in the root of the meaning of the words means to cover up to cover something and why one is to forgive, and the other one is to disbelief. And it has to do with the word with the letter rain.

00:43:01--> 00:43:26

When you use the letter name in the Arabic language, and this is the work of a man, a scholar called bin Genie, who goes into each letter in the Arabic language and tells us why each letter is used in that particular word. Not only Why is each word is used in that position, but why each letter was used in that word. The Lord the word the literal lane, means that something disappear and goes away forever. Like Vajra Baba,

00:43:28--> 00:44:15

something that goes is gone. And when Allah takes the sin and covers it up, that sin is gone. When Allah make another sphere, when Allah covers up our sins, like our sins will never happen, that they were never there if they're gone and they're gone forever. But Kufa is one something that takes the truth and the trying to cover it up. There's nothing that can cover the truth. The truth always comes back up. This truth always you cannot hide the truth. Even those who are too far, who they try to cover up their innate nature, their truth that is within, that Allah created with them. It can never die out. But the sins when Allah make an offer on they go away. I'm just trying to give an

00:44:15--> 00:44:32

example of how important to really understand sometimes the roots of these words and understand how a lion uses every word in the Quran so precisely. And every letter it's in its own position. And that's why the Quran is such a miracle, just from that linguistic standpoint.

00:44:33--> 00:44:47

So the fitness to go back I digressed a little bit, but the fitness is this is basically trials by fire. It's a hard trial to show your true element to show our true nature before Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:44:51--> 00:45:00

unless there's the debt calamity, it happens to everyone. It happens to the believer and it happens to the disbeliever It happens to the righteous and it happens

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

To the disobedient.

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

Allah says, em says come.

00:45:06--> 00:45:13

When you are afflicted by that harm and by that calamity, then people are being touched by also a similar calamity.

00:45:16--> 00:45:23

Such as the days are in terms among people. But when it comes to the believer, it is to elevate

00:45:25--> 00:45:29

and when it comes to the disbeliever it is to punish.

00:45:32--> 00:45:47

It comes to test the believer and to elevate their status and when it comes to the disbeliever it comes one of the phenomena as well as adding a cabal So, they can pay taste from the lesser punishment before they get the greater punish.

00:45:50--> 00:45:55

And the opposite is true. When Allah gives prosperity and wealth and gifts to the believers.

00:45:57--> 00:45:59

It is a reward in this dunya

00:46:00--> 00:46:03

and when it comes to the disbeliever It is his fifth Raj.

00:46:05--> 00:46:14

Right when it comes to the believer, it is to feel when wealth comes to the believer, Allah Rasool masala somebody said nirman Madison, Roger the silence solid,

00:46:15--> 00:46:16

good wealth for a good person.

00:46:18--> 00:46:20

But wealth also comes to disbelievers and that is

00:46:22--> 00:46:28

that is the lesson one I'm going to give them to Giuliani him and their transgression,

00:46:29--> 00:46:37

to increase their blindness to dragon worse on that path, that they're taking the bat path of destruction, that they're setting themselves apart.

00:46:41--> 00:47:23

And everyone will get tested. A solid Sunil MDL aqui said this is a hadith and Al Bukhari narrated on the authority of Saudi Arabia will pass that the side asked the Prophet sallallahu you send them he said, You're a solo lawyer, are you? Are you? Are you nasty? I should do better. Who is the of the people that is tested the hardest? The Prophet said mdls who must follow the hood to make himself and M said the prophets the righteous and then the less and the less you tell her rajulio Allah has to be Dini said everyone will be afflicted according to how much faith they have. Thank hanafy Dini he salada so if his Deen his faith is hard and solid z that he Valarie then the test

00:47:23--> 00:47:53

will be harder. Why can I see Dini here? But if his faith is soft and light, hopefully Fine, then the test will be light. When I say do not miss Bella or bill movement, listen to this. And affliction and tribulation continues to be upon a believer hatay mc Allah, Allah Hafiz until he walks on the face of the earth and he has no sins upon him. A lot of this or the sins away from these things that we that we would have happened to us.

00:47:56--> 00:48:23

And it is said that any affliction that happens in any calamity a human being is one of four they're one of four things that we go through when we are afflicted fortress basic responses. He said the first thing is Mocambo lodges Nakama Shaka was the first or the lowest of these is the station of complaining

00:48:24--> 00:48:26

something happens to us we start complaining

00:48:28--> 00:48:38

you know we start complaining and why why me why my family why my money why my car you know there was 20 cars on the highway why got what they got me

00:48:40--> 00:48:43

Why Why is this and why that you know whining, right?

00:48:45--> 00:48:54

And the client said that's the worst response to any calamity is Shaquan Mocambo edges and he called the Dell edges meaning

00:48:55--> 00:49:04

things that it just useless I mean you're complaining complaining complaining complaining complaining What good is that gonna do? It's not gonna help anything.

00:49:05--> 00:49:19

And he's just gonna make make things worse for us. And then he said lay a father who in law lunacy Auckland Medina, the people that have least intellect and least faith. That's what they do and when something bad happens to them, they start complaining.

00:49:20--> 00:49:23

And then he said, there is a higher level and that is mcommerce. Sapa.

00:49:27--> 00:49:38

And by the way, the complaining can be up in the heart, just go from that, that worst response to any calamity is to complain and to have bitterness and resentment

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

towards the calamity or towards what Allah has allowed to happen to us. To have resentment to the Creator is the worst thing that anyone can have. And we'll call him and later on him entertainment all the along and they explain that and they said a lot said in the Quran Amina nasty man. Yeah, but

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

lohana have

00:50:02--> 00:50:07

an ad when alphabet to finetuning colada llg hustler, Daniela.

00:50:08--> 00:50:43

So there's some people that worship Allah Allah have on an edge or on offense. Right? Their faith is not strong. I said in the fall behind on it's my nav as long as they are doing well. They're fine in and is good slime is great, everything is fine. He's having enough of everything. And then Allah said one alphabet who fitna, but when a fitna happens when he is now being tested to show the true meaning of Xenon in Colorado, that's when they fall up down on the faces.

00:50:44--> 00:51:03

hasira Daniela Herrera, they lost dunya and akhira they lost this life and they lost the year after because the fitna happened to them and they're getting no reward out of it. So whatever affliction happened to them, they lost what's in this dunya and they cannot get rewarded for it and

00:51:04--> 00:51:06

because of their reaction to it.

00:51:09--> 00:51:22

This the higher reaction to this is to have patience and to endure the affliction and that is a Saba and we will go over that inshallah in more details. Because Allah tonight we have a lot of time.

00:51:23--> 00:51:55

The third level, the higher level of that, even higher than sober itself. We're actually in many, many scholars put it within supper. It is the beautiful sovereign sovereign. Jimmy heard that word sovereign Jimmy on the tongue of Jaco dallisa summer Jamil has this content in it. There is no resentment to the to the mostly that there is no resentment to Allah, there's actually contentment with what others satisfaction and your willingness to have River.

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

I accept completely. What has almost Hannah with Allison my way.

00:52:01--> 00:52:07

And the highest level, the best response to any most leader is a shocker

00:52:08--> 00:52:11

to actually show gratitude for them.

00:52:13--> 00:52:14

Now, that's hard.

00:52:15--> 00:52:16

That's not easy.

00:52:18--> 00:52:25

To be afflicted with something, not to complain as a must send obligation upon us, not to resent it.

00:52:26--> 00:52:33

Not to have resentment towards the destiny, which is something that we believe it is from a law. It is a must. It's an obligation.

00:52:35--> 00:52:57

To have patience is what we are recommended to do. Or rather, to be satisfied with it is a higher thing. Not to have gratitude is really a high station out there. That is something that's full of Sonico that is something that we asked a lot to be of the people that we can we can live and understand.

00:52:58--> 00:53:06

Amara Viola who said in this famous efa he said not to be Bella illa candelilla he Allah Yes, he.

00:53:09--> 00:53:47

He said every time I'm afflicted with something Allah has already have four bounces that I need to thank him for everything bad that happens to me. I need to thank Allah for things to show gratitude for for things. He said the first and now hold me a comfy Dini, that affliction is not in my faith. That my Eman is not afflicted by it. And you look at a valley his center. Now he was okay with all of this. But his heart was with Allah subhanho wa Taala. As long as the heart is intact, as long as the affliction is not in Deen, then everything is okay.

00:53:48--> 00:53:59

Now that is the highest stage. And I almost said first thing that I thank Allah for that didn't sleep, that disaster was not in my Dean. And the thing was,

00:54:01--> 00:54:07

that he was not worse than what he was. And everything, every calamity no matter what it is, he can always see that he could have been worse.

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

Everything could have been worse.

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

And then he said the third thing was

00:54:15--> 00:54:22

that I was not deprived from being satisfied satisfied with it, then being content with Allah subhana wa tada with it.

00:54:24--> 00:54:42

That is something I need to thank Allah for. And then he said the fourth thing and he addressed Ella ballet, that I wish that I hope that Allah would reward me for it. And for that reward, I think our last word, meaning that every calamity, I will get rewarded for it if I'm patient.

00:54:43--> 00:54:45

So I need to thank Allah for those four things.

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

Now, there are etiquettes in Bella

00:54:56--> 00:55:00

there are etiquettes how we face calamity now this is the story

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

Have you that endured calamity in some scholars say for 70 years, it was not a month or two of hardship. l agree was years upon years and some went up from three to seven years and some say 70 years of calamity and adversity.

00:55:18--> 00:55:22

So what are the etiquettes of the believers in face of calamity?

00:55:23--> 00:55:35

The first manners The first thing of we we face a lot with is total belief is total faith in the destiny and now a man who will cover up

00:55:37--> 00:55:45

hierarchy Ricky washerwomen, Angela, the good and the bad from Allah subhana wa Taala is an article of faith.

00:55:46--> 00:55:51

If we don't believe in the destiny of law and the law of Kabbalah

00:55:52--> 00:56:37

then our Eman is not complete. We cannot even call ourselves Muslims. And Allah subhana wa tada said, ma saw them and we'll see that and fill out the wall FCM fusi come in Luffy kita nebra in the Delica Allah Allah He has to learn to read and Hadith said that is not been a calamity or a disaster, fill out the Olathe unforeseen come upon this earth, or in yourselves in anything that happens to you, or to your surroundings, unless it has been written in a book before are like the eighth and you are created the earth. before Allah created the creation, this has been written by Allah subhana wa tada we know the first thing that Allah created was the pen. And Allah said it

00:56:37--> 00:56:44

right. And the pen wrote everything that happens, that will happen to the the the end of time.

00:56:45--> 00:56:51

And then Allah created. So he said, Allah said that it is important to know

00:56:54--> 00:56:58

that faith in Allah, the faith and elkader so what does that mean?

00:57:00--> 00:57:21

Meaning you cannot change anything. And you cannot say, if I just did this, it would not have happened. You know, people torment themselves, they drive themselves crazy with guilt and torture. said if I only did this and if I did not do this, what the prophet sallallahu Sallam told us to do, say under a law,

00:57:23--> 00:57:26

say Allah has ordained this and Allah does whatever you want.

00:57:28--> 00:57:46

Only if I took that son to the doctor a little bit earlier, only if I not gave him this if only did don't say if if or if not, or if I did, or if I didn't. Hamas, what happened is the color of Allah and that gives us the comfort and the heart. And it is the truth from Allah subhana wa.

00:57:49--> 00:57:52

Now it's all about me mostly, but it is Neela one minute mean delay.

00:57:53--> 00:58:08

Allah be conditionally Allah said in a terrible anything, any affliction any calamity, it is by the permission of Allah Subhana Allah amaizing control of it. And those who believe in Allah, Allah will give them the guidance to the truth. And Allah is all knowing.

00:58:15--> 00:58:24

Then, the other etiquette of a calamity is whenever we are afflicted with something we don't like.

00:58:25--> 00:58:27

We have to go back and review ourselves.

00:58:30--> 00:58:32

To go back and let's review our actions.

00:58:34--> 00:58:43

We don't resent or complain about why it happened to us. But we need to know if there's anything what we have done that we deserve the punishment

00:58:44--> 00:58:46

from Allah subhana wa Taala

00:58:50--> 00:59:08

because Allah said whatever afflictions happen to you be meqasa with a decal by a foreign key here it is with what your hands and gains have gained, and he forgives a lot. So it is important that when something happens

00:59:09--> 00:59:27

is to go back and fn and review ourselves our lm alphabet como si, but but ultimately wholesome Anna has a column in Indian food Zico in mohalla condition in Korea, when something happened to you say why why did that come from? Allah say do I'm an Indian food seeker it is from within yourself.

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

So let's review our needs review ourselves when an affliction happens.

00:59:34--> 00:59:44

And Allah said, inilah Dena topo is MSM five woman the shape on that curve? Guys are almost zero. And those who have Taqwa when they are afflicted

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

with the Touch of Evil, like a yoga Salaam, you see and what what he said. And Nina said yesterday final being also beware that that shaitan has touched me with that torment and harm. And Allah said anila Xena

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

tokuyama soundpoint form in a shape on one shape and touch you with Thorman with harm. The current law, the current fader moves around, you remember on what sort of viewing ourselves

01:00:14--> 01:00:18

is part of the manners and etiquettes of facing any calamity.

01:00:20--> 01:00:27

The third etiquette of the calamity, of formal Sliva of dealing with adversity in our lives

01:00:29--> 01:00:38

is not to despair not to reach the point of depression and despair and reach the status of what is called as pollut in Rahmatullah.

01:00:39--> 01:00:51

hopelessness from the mercy of Allah subhana wa Taala. Allah said what is the NASA Ramadan? Sorry, who want to sit home say yeah, tominaga dammit ADM is Amir Kanako.

01:00:52--> 01:00:54

Allah says in Surah to room when we

01:00:55--> 01:00:58

let people taste the mercy they are happy with it.

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

But when something bad happens to them for what they have done, went to simple mercy but don't be mad at him. When a punishment comes from Allah for what their hands have already delivered, is that homea konatsu they reach the point of despair and losing hope with Allah subhana wa Tada. And when we reviewed the story of your karate, Salah, said la Tuchman una Rahmatullah never lose hope from the mercy of alma mater morality law in the common physical, only in fact, that would lose hope from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who can lose you lose hope with a rough man, Rahim and Kareem, Samir Allah foo. And

01:01:48--> 01:02:03

how can we lose hope with almost a panda with that, if we believe in the Beautiful Names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala if we have a true understanding of who God is a really negates a man to lose hope was almost panel with that.

01:02:19--> 01:02:24

Now, the other manner and the most important manner in facing

01:02:25--> 01:02:53

adversity or a calamity is the the Holocaust of the manor of Sabah. Now you've alayhis salam is known for his Saba when whenever you you have to give an example for Saba a role model for Sabah. He said as patient as a you know somebody who's just to have the patience of a new value set up. Now that's what we need. Now we spoke about the calamity and how we face calamity but the the weapon that we take

01:02:54--> 01:02:58

into our battle was calamity and adversity is a sovereign.

01:03:00--> 01:03:09

Allah subhanaw taala enjoined upon us to have Saba and praise those who have suffered. You are Latina, ammonoosuc, boo boo, Fabio,

01:03:10--> 01:03:11

la la la

01:03:12--> 01:03:14

is through a father who

01:03:15--> 01:03:16

have suffered

01:03:17--> 01:03:34

and exchanged some words summer to strengthen each other to have server support each other for that server waterpolo warabi, two and steadfast. What duckula and have Taqwa and fear en la, la La Come on that you might attain success.

01:03:35--> 01:03:53

And when look man was his managing his son, Yamuna, Yamato Akina, sala de la rue Fiona and in Carlos and Anna saavik. In Nevada came in as milone. To have a karmic Fallout, and to enjoin the good and prohibit the evil and have trouble.

01:03:55--> 01:03:57

It is the weapon of everyday area.

01:03:58--> 01:04:03

It is the weapon of every person that wants to call for Allah subhana wa Taala in the valley came in as

01:04:09--> 01:04:25

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as narrated by both Hardy and Muslim he said Who am I Oh, I had to Nepal and Iran Oh, stamina Saba, no one has ever been gifted anything that is better and more vast than a solid. If you are giving somebody you are ready to face everything.

01:04:26--> 01:04:46

If Allah has bestowed sufferer upon us, we are ready to face anything inshallah that comes our way. If we have to solve or if we have mastered that hollow cassava, that man or Saba a calamity and end adversity will face it will suffer, and also prosperity and wealth needs forever.

01:04:48--> 01:04:57

Suffer is not only for calamities and adversity, you know there is a subtitle Alan makara there is to have support before calamity

01:04:58--> 01:05:00

and you have to have somebody

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

Allah

01:05:01--> 01:05:10

to have patience and endurance, to obey Allah, obedience of Oman, it's forbidden to have this perseverance and power.

01:05:12--> 01:05:31

And we need to have some more animosity, to to, to have this perseverance in fighting the temptation of this world, and the sins that are just lurking around. We know the Hadeeth ofrecen genda to Bill Macquarie 30 now rubbish our gender is surrounded

01:05:32--> 01:05:34

by things that are hard and difficult

01:05:35--> 01:05:36

to

01:05:37--> 01:05:46

lower the gaze, you have to pray to get up in the morning, you know, things that are just thought, you know, if your neffs

01:05:47--> 01:05:50

is given the choice wouldn't do it on its own.

01:05:51--> 01:06:00

Right? Hopefully agenda to Bill McCarrick in Nairobi, shallot, and half fire is, is surrounded by all of these temptations.

01:06:02--> 01:06:17

You know, little bit of this and a little bit of that wind, beautiful women and, you know, music and partying and living at large and having this and having that, that leads to hellfire. And that needs.

01:06:19--> 01:06:32

You know, we have to teach our children and teach ourselves and remind each other fathers little wasabia that we need to kind of really steadfast and support each other, that really needs to everyday struggle.

01:06:34--> 01:06:41

You know, to lower our gazes to, to know how to treat people to know how to live a true righteous Islamic living,

01:06:43--> 01:06:55

not to try and to gain, you know, sometimes temptation, we want to wealth and we want a lot of it and we want it fast. And there's a lot of ways that that wealth will offer itself to us

01:06:56--> 01:06:57

that are not good.

01:06:58--> 01:07:00

And we have to be patient

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

and endure. That's true.

01:07:06--> 01:07:16

So that's why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, melty, I had an iPhone siren was tamina Saba, if you are giving fervor, then you're really ready to face all of that.

01:07:17--> 01:07:21

Then you have the right weapon, the right tools,

01:07:22--> 01:07:27

to face all of these temptations, and all of these mcherry all of these bad things.

01:07:28--> 01:07:38

And all of a sudden you be able to face what a lot is going to send you through life. Because the less than one a blue one, accomplish a minute how you will do it you are not similar enough

01:07:39--> 01:07:41

that you will be tested with some fear.

01:07:43--> 01:07:44

You will be threatened

01:07:45--> 01:07:46

and your safety.

01:07:48--> 01:07:57

You'll be threatened in your family you'll be threatened in a lot of things. Mental health, you will fear while you're

01:07:58--> 01:08:43

in some famine, some lack of wealth or not seminary minella one will emphasize some people will die they will lose their lives will summarize and are the fruits out of the gainful things that we get in this dunya but Allah said, well that should have five years of slavery. But given the great timing for slavery, and laziness, como se bateau Carlo in la la, la la, la la la la la to me Robbie Maura, what would I do and but give the timing for those who have never when they are afflicted with the mostly that they say in LA LA winery, Roger, we are to Allah and the return is to him when I carry him sauna water Merapi him, those will have blessings and mercy from their Lord. What What

01:08:43--> 01:08:44

will a common motto

01:08:49--> 01:08:57

and Allah subhanho wa Taala said to his prophets foster karma sobre La Russa said set to His Prophet Mohammed Salam

01:09:00--> 01:09:19

have Saba camera sobre una as Nina Russa like the prophets of strong resolve has showed patience. Now we know who are the owner as well as him or new Ibrahim Musa Isa and Mohamed Salah from my image name.

01:09:20--> 01:09:26

And what distinguishes those prophets of strong resolve from others. Allah says a suburb

01:09:28--> 01:09:33

why these five are chosen of all the prophets and the messengers that Allah has sent.

01:09:35--> 01:09:39

First Americana sobre una as it is the former.

01:09:40--> 01:09:59

That is it. Summer is not an easy thing. It is but when someone is mastering Saba, they can suffer training themselves for Saba. The Prophet said there is nothing better than that. Now Lt. 100 upon Elsa, from Sabah, there's nothing vast there's nothing more vast and more important than Saba.

01:10:07--> 01:10:31

And not every calamity that we see is necessarily has a bad end for us. Now sometimes we have to go through bad things, but we have to keep in our mind, that there may be good in it, that we cannot realize our wisdom is limited. Our vision is very limited, but our laws wisdom is infinite. And Allah said Watson, Takahashi and Rhonda

01:10:32--> 01:10:34

Watson to enforce a

01:10:36--> 01:10:41

law we are number one from Latin America, you might take something and it's good for you.

01:10:43--> 01:10:48

And you might love something and it's bad for you. And Allah knows and you don't know.

01:10:50--> 01:11:10

So, follow the follow the guidelines and you will be fine. And follow the summer from Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will be fine. And the Prophet said that you will be rewarded for that, as given the Unreal moment. In the umbra hoopoe, high quality Valley Kenya had an indelible moment in alphabet to Sabra Sabra Shakur.

01:11:11--> 01:11:17

When Saba Rhonda, the prophet said, How wonderous is the affair of the Muslim

01:11:19--> 01:11:20

everything is good.

01:11:21--> 01:11:37

When he is hit by a bat when he was given an A prosperity or wealth or something good he would show Shakur gratitude to Allah and that will be good for them. And when he is hit by a calamity, he will have solver and that is good for him.

01:11:39--> 01:12:13

And there are benefits of sober and there are benefits of Villa while Santa crochet and oh hi Rocco. What good can be in a calamity, what good can be in something like what au ballet is Salam had to go through, there are elements and there is infinite good. And many calamities that happen to us, if we can just see if we can just heat and thank Allah subhana wa Taala for it. The first benefit of any calamity and immediately reminds you of Allah subhanho wa Taala and brings you closer to Allah subhana wa.

01:12:14--> 01:12:38

And I can tell you from personal experience and from experience of many of my beloved brothers, that when they are in a tight ship and a tight position, immediately you get closer to Allah and that is a good sign off of a lever. When you need to run to some someone run to a law. When you need to seek help with someone seek it was Allah subhana wa Tada.

01:12:41--> 01:13:04

Allah said, Why is an unnatural Insomniac, Obi Wan abijah Navy? Why is the master who shall rule federal law in Hawaii. It's a human nature that we become heedless and more forgetful. When we are doing really good, prosperous, wealthy, it's easy to forget a lot of things that we should be doing. But we are on we're in trouble. As we do and

01:13:06--> 01:13:11

we have a lot of prayer, a lot of supplication and a lot of remembrance to Allah subhana wa Tada.

01:13:14--> 01:13:17

The other thing the other good thing that Allah

01:13:18--> 01:13:44

gives us with this calamity, a calamity can be good for us. Because we we have the sugar, like aroma rhodiola and said that for every calamity there are four things that I need to thank Allah for. And we we have to thank Allah that He was not in our in our faith, that our faith is intact inshallah. And it is could not you know, it could have been worse. And we should seek the reward and thank Allah subhanaw taala for

01:13:46--> 01:13:51

and the good thing in the calamity is there is lifting off of our sins.

01:13:52--> 01:14:06

Our sins will be forgiven, because of our endurance and our patience in the face of a calamity. Remember that Hadees that we we narrated in our body, that marathon will Bella overlap the AMC Allah

01:14:08--> 01:14:25

and Allah, Allah wants to purify somebody. He keeps giving them those calamities and adversities and hard time until they walk on the face of the earth and they have no sins left for them. So when they meet Allah subhana wa tada Sharla straight to paradise.

01:14:30--> 01:14:41

And then, of the good things that come with with hard time and adversities is if you are used to do good things if you are used to get up every night and prayer.

01:14:43--> 01:14:53

Or if you are used to fasting Monday and Thursday, and we get sick, and we can't do it, that a word keeps coming for doing that deep

01:14:54--> 01:14:55

that the reward doesn't stop

01:14:57--> 01:15:00

even if we are held from doing that by our adversities and

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

Remember when we were studying the Islamic history, one of the scholars that was jailed and the time of the Morteza lies. Every Friday He will make will do and he would go to the gate of the prison as if he is like going to Friday Prayer

01:15:14--> 01:15:22

just so he can get the reward of it. And you say Allah Mashhad all I see I did my part they won't let me get out of jail to come to the job.

01:15:23--> 01:15:25

He was in the state of calamity.

01:15:26--> 01:15:34

hard time for many scholars, many scholars lost their lives, at that time, tortured, beaten by the devil, the ally.

01:15:35--> 01:15:36

But all the good deeds

01:15:37--> 01:15:50

won't stop all seized in a time of the calamity that we are used to do in time of health and prosperity. That's the Prophet salado sentence and the tenant comes in the house take advantage of five before five.

01:15:51--> 01:15:59

Right hi Attica kablammo take your life before you doubt. So how to make your health before your sickness

01:16:01--> 01:16:08

for Africa, like your time before you get real busy, because life you know, makes us more busy, we can do a lot of things.

01:16:09--> 01:16:13

Shabaab Boko Haram make your use before your Lv you become old.

01:16:15--> 01:16:25

Right? So we have to always take advantage and teach ourselves good habits. So if a calamity comes, we continue to take the rewards of those good deeds.

01:16:28--> 01:16:34

Another good thing that comes out of Fela comes out of masiva is really to,

01:16:36--> 01:16:36

to

01:16:38--> 01:16:55

correct ourselves. Sometimes we have some small transgressions or big transgressions. And some people have to be stopped when Allah loves some people and see that they're swerving in the wrong direction or why stop some of the calamity to bring them back to the right path

01:16:56--> 01:17:05

for Islam for their own good. Allah said, this beautiful verse, when Obama followed his career he that he loved.

01:17:06--> 01:17:10

If I must stretch his boundaries upon people on earth

01:17:12--> 01:17:41

lab, often they will become transgressors. You know, money and power corrupts. That's the facts of life. And only those who Ally's bestowed His bounty upon they go and go get corrupted by money and power. You know, we it's easy for us a lot of times you said this leader and that leader, how they corrupted and many times you know, he's just I don't know what I'm gonna do if I was in their place, you know, money and power brings corruption.

01:17:42--> 01:17:44

And that's why Mr. Mo Nadal,

01:17:45--> 01:17:52

a leader that is just is one of the seven that Allah will shade in his shade, on the day when there is no shade under the shade of Allah.

01:17:54--> 01:17:56

So Allah said, you know,

01:17:57--> 01:17:58

the Adam,

01:17:59--> 01:18:25

to come a Sikh otaku Maya leak, I have given you what's enough for you, but you asked me for things that will make you a tyrant give you a transgression upon others. So some of those calamities that happened to us is to really set us back on the right path. Sometimes we go just swinging right and left through life. And we forget who we are and the more powerful we get, the harder we swing.

01:18:26--> 01:18:30

And sometimes Allah subhana wa tada give us a little slap, say stop.

01:18:32--> 01:18:33

Go back.

01:18:36--> 01:19:20

And one of the benefits of Villa is a timepiece is to the fitness the idea of the fitness Villa and tribulation is to show the good from the bad, the righteous from the evil Allah Subhana Allah said while he Italia long methods for dorico Voluma Samatha lubicon ma allinone De Soto. So Allah will test what's in your chest, you might have to really go into the details and just the the show to extract what's in the hearts below I'll even be that law is all knowing of what's in there, what's in the chest and then what's in the schedule.

01:19:22--> 01:19:44

And then of the power of the benefits of L Bella is the reward of impella is what we get rewarded in this dunya for patience and in the accuracy for our support and our endurance before this fella unless the panel with Allah said about those who have sober hola que la him Salawat Mira be him. What are

01:19:45--> 01:19:49

they doing? They will get the Salah what from Allah, the blessing

01:19:51--> 01:20:00

from Allah Subhana Allah wa and the mercy from Allah while they go home, they don't and they will be giving guidance. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to be

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

Have them

01:20:01--> 01:20:03

in America for five Buena

01:20:04--> 01:20:11

Vista, that Assad Iran will be given back their reward without, with no accounts.

01:20:12--> 01:20:16

You know, we you may you know, pay $10 you get them in

01:20:17--> 01:20:31

a suburb, you get a countless there is no accounting was Allah subhanaw taala for Saba desert, a server, the rewards for server is not by num, it's not numbered. Villa he said.

01:20:32--> 01:21:12

He said you rahula whorfin just like you know, you know you sometime you give people you count their money when you give them. But for those five your own, you just kind of by the bushels, you know, you just throw it at them throw the blessing the charity upon them. So this is a you value histogram. This is the story of a very simple story, just two places in the Quran that is narrated, like he's mentioned in four times for four places, but the story is short in only two sources, and lmds and so on. Right? But but you can really I mean, we spent here about almost close to an hour and a half just speaking about the benefits of

01:21:14--> 01:21:18

understanding calamity. calamity to the believer

01:21:20--> 01:21:21

is a good thing.

01:21:22--> 01:21:24

How many benefits and calamity

01:21:26--> 01:21:35

and it's a reminder for for the believer to go back to Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, May or June, Allah said that might come back.

01:21:36--> 01:21:38

Allah wants you to be back.

01:21:40--> 01:22:08

Allah doesn't want you to swerve away from his path. And some people will be called back and they come back and some people need to be pulled back. And sometimes people need to be beaten back. But if Allah loves you, he will bring you back and we asked to be of the ones that that Allah loves us and bring us back in the easiest way and this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once was asked, he was and this is also a Muslim, and I will conclude with that.

01:22:10--> 01:22:11

He was

01:22:12--> 01:22:48

visiting his sick Sahabi sick believer. And then he said he looked at him and he saw that his situation was terrible, that his sickness just got the best out of them and he left them in a miserable situation. And the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said, I'll put the dead Ruby Shay, did you pray for something? Were you praying a lot? And he said yes, I used to pray a long time. RPB v. Phil, our hero, Virgin who live in dunya. He said I used to pray or Allah whatever punishment you are going to give me in the Acura, give it to me now in dunya.

01:22:50--> 01:23:01

And the prophets Allah Allah subhana wa. He said, Love will tickle. You cannot tolerate this. He said, Don't you say along the achaean after dunya has Santa

01:23:02--> 01:23:03

Santa Joaquin.

01:23:05--> 01:23:15
