wa Salatu was Salam ala de Menil aquilani Allah membaca hula hula amin Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala early he was happy he he made
our Imam today have you ever heard Allahu taala in the first Raka of Salah Malaysia reminded us of that beautiful passage from Surah Al Baqarah. And how Allah subhanahu wa taala legislated a cm and the objective of cm and that is tough Allah He Isaiah Jen to gain the taqwa of Allah azza wa jal, and shortly after Allah subhanahu wa taala says, What either Celica evadne for India corrib, Eg Buddha today either an felicita Jubilee, well you mean obey Allah, Allah whom he or she do. And when my servants
ask you about me, I am me. I answer the supplications I answer the supplications of those who supplicate so let them answer me and let them believe in me, in order for me to guide them. A very important point here about what Allah subhanaw taala says, After saying that he is knee He says filius ijebu li and so it's like one of the conditions or two conditions in order for you
to be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala is that you answer Allah azza wa jal wherever he commands you to do something. And so whenever Allah subhana wa Taala says, Yeah, are you Hi Latina Amano as one of the Sahaba he said, he said listen attentively, listen very carefully, for what is about to come is a command for you to do something which is beneficial, or Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to prohibit something which is not good for you. And so he says filius ijebu Lee, this is the first condition if we want our arts to be answered by Allah azza wa jal, and we want Allah subhana wa Taala to amaze us with his bounties and his blessings. It's very important that we are obeying
allies origin and after all, isn't that what Islam is? And it's Islam? Does Islam means submission and surrender and obedience to Allah azza wa jal, Phineas, the Jubilee, well you mean ob, and let them believe in me. And so this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts our My dear brothers and mighty sisters in a stem. You know, our pious predecessors are set up for silence. Their concern when it came to do I wasn't if there was going to be answered by Allah or not. That didn't concern them that never worried them. They knew for sure it that Allah subhanho wa Taala he always answers the door from a Muslim who is sincere and who follows the etiquettes of law, but their concern was
their ability to make the door the ability to actually make the door. My dear brothers and sisters in a stem when it comes to analyze zoa jen answering the door, when you raise your hands when you make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala, one of four things can happen. Either Allah Subhana Allah blesses you and grants you your and what you have desires are what you are asking for. This is the first one it gives you what you want. Secondly, when you make do I, it might be that Allah azza wa jal gives you better than what you want. Because sometimes we want something but it's not good for us. And sometimes we hate something but it's actually good for us. Sometimes sapan Allah, Allah
subhanho wa Taala hee hee hee decreased for us to fall to go down in order to find what we are really looking for. And so the second one is that ally xojo can bless us with something even better than what we have asked for. Thirdly, from amongst the four ways that Allah answers our da is that Allah subhanho wa Taala may ward off a harm that was coming our way some evil that was coming our way because you made do I Allah subhanho wa Taala he walks off that hump that evil And fourthly, Allah subhanho wa Taala may not answer you in this dunya but he answers it for you by giving you that which will be of the best, the best outcome in the hereafter. So see how Allah subhana wa Taala
answers you so all that mean you have to do is make the dough but the doula is like a weapon as if no play him or him a hula hoop either in his book adapt what the what he said that the doula is
Like a weapon. And as you know, you can have an amazing weapon. But if you don't know how to use the weapon, no matter how good it is, of what benefit is that weapon, so he said that the weapon is just as good as the one who is handling the weapon. So it's very, very important to be mindful not only of the door, but mindful of yourself and and mindful of the things that can act as a barrier between you and your door. What are some of the barriers like for example, from amongst the barriers of is that you don't you don't live or you are not enveloped or surrounded by a Hillel environment. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentions the situation of a man who's on a journey. He
is a traveler and the daughter of a traveler as you know, is answered by Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says ash has Elphaba. He says that his hair is disheveled and he's dusty. So he's in a state of need. Up Lucifer, Asha bayamo, dia de la Santa, that he raises his hands to the summer and the summer is a blur of the raising your hands to Allah soprano with the island. And he says, Yeah, Rob, Rob, he acknowledges the Ruby of Allah azza wa jal that Allah azza wa jal is the one who's able to make anything happen Allahu Akbar.
So he says, yup era, but mahatama who haram his food is from haram and his drink is from haram and his and his melda his clothing is from Haram. Well, who's the bill haram and he is nourishment is from haram for now. Use the jab hula over and they use the jab hula Daddy, how is this person's going to be answered by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so my dear brothers and mighty sisters in Islam, it is so important to keep away from the Haram Yes, don't compromise. stay firm and ask Allah azza wa jal, one of the dilemmas that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to often make his yarmulke libelle kulu Bay that bit called the allergenic alternate of the hearts. Make my heart
steadfast on your deen. This is a very important
Allah azza wa jal is the one who gives you a wrist. Allah azza wa jal is the one who controls the hearts of people towards you, who controls the minds of people towards you. And so your risk your sustenance has already been ordained by Allah azza wa jal, as he said, Well, this summer it is spoken to I don't, and in the heavens is your risk is your sustenance and what you have been promised. So we need to remember this I, in the beginning of Ramadan, I came across a brother who was sharing with me a very inspirational story. He said to me that he wasn't he wasn't upon the Sunnah.
And then at Hamdulillah, he was guided by Allah azza wa jal. And he'd been working in his trade as a tradesman. And he had been working for such a long time. And so panela as soon as he put on the bead, as soon as he grew his beard, that's when the people start to around him in his workplace. And the people around him started to say things like, why don't you remove your bead? Why don't you shave it off? Why don't you take it off? We don't we know it's not really good to have this. And so panela he would, he would go back to the chef and ask him for advice. And one day, the chef said to him, he said to him, if he said to me, my advice to you is to leave that job. Leave it for the sake
of Allah. And so the next day, so panela he did exactly that. He had yaqeen he had tawakkol in Allah azza wa jal, and he knows that when you leave off something for the sake of Allah, Allah compensate you with something better. And so he left it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. And the next day it was he, he put in his resignation. And then the day after that, he actually went on to the Internet, and he looked for work. And he came across a job in a company and he put his resume through at seven o'clock and will lie he actually is showing me the email. He's sitting right next to me said, I want to show you he showed me how he sent it at seven o'clock, and how at nine o'clock, two hours later,
he received the news that he has gotten that job. He said to me, the next day, I had 30 jobs ready for me to go to. That's taqwa. Woman yet tequila ha Yaga Allahu Maharajah. Why are Sukumaran hifu Leia
that when you have Taqwa, Allah azzawajal and your primary goal and you're the one that you want to play says Allah subhana wa Tada. He provides a way out
gives you this Maharaj from where you least expect it. And he and he gives you sustenance from from sustenance from where you least expect it My dear brothers and mighty sisters in a stamp. So our prime, our primary goal should always be the pleasure of Allah. We don't do things to go to gentlemen. We don't do things because we want to be safe from the hellfire. We do things for the pleasure of Allah because we do things for the pleasure of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with you. You go to Jenna, you get saved from the Hellfire and you have a good life in this life. So it's so important to remember that we are after the reader of Allah subhanho wa Taala and when it
comes to our mighty brothers and my sisters in Islam, it is so it is imperative that we have europeen who don't Lucha we're unto mukhin una de Jabba the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said make dua and you are optimistic and you are confident that Allah azzawajal is going to answer you just like aboubaker so differently Allahu Allahu Allah was confident, and he made you out when he wanted to be the one who accompanies the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on on the on the migration and hijra from from Mecca to Medina. And he may do and he wanted to be that one. And so Pamela, what happens the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he comes knocking on his door, and he
tell him, he tells him It gives him the Claire tiding and the news that you are coming with me. Now when he said this, what happened? I will workers speaker the Allahu anhu Allah had already packed the provisions for two people, that's your thing. He had certainty that Allah azza wa jal will answer his will answer his door. So when you make do I go about your life as if your dad has already been answered, be optimistic. But Don't be hasty. And don't say, Oh, I make do and I make too and my dad is never answered. How do you know that you do is not answered. Repeat the do and the best to ask is the two of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and especially during these noble nights,
whereby One of These Nights is Laila to Qatar, the best way to make his Allahumma inika for one to hibel Alpha for an hour long. You are one who pod and you love to pardon. So Pardon me. This is an amazing blog, a powerful, because it's not just about, oh Fran, it's not just about covering, covering up of your sin. It's about a total obliteration of your sins, removal of the sins and so panela so whenever you are not sure what to ask for, and you are overwhelmed with asking for so many things. Just Allah ask Allah to forgive you. Because when he forgives you what's going to happen, amazing things are going to come your way in this dunya and in the era, and especially during the
times that he is highly accepted. Like during your sujood like between event and ikoma like between acid and mustard every Friday, like in the third part of the night and especially in your tahajjud in amisha fury Rahim Allah to Allah he said, he said that the dua that is made during tahajjud is like is like the arrow that never misses its target. So let us be mindful of this. And let us ask Allah azza wa jal to guide us to what is best for us. And that's from amongst the daughters of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I love him and him nourish de Vaca Nishan FC, our la Allahumma and him nourish to our law guide me to that which brings about guidance
and protect me from the evil of my own self. I asked Allah subhana wa Taala to keep us all steadfast, especially during the difficult times times of calamity and hardships and misfortune.
