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

smilla rahmanir rahim al

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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi. Germaine All praise is due to Allah who made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all the prophets and messengers that were sent to mankind by the respective brothers and sisters in Islam, salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

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

Today inshallah Allah we are going to explore yet another concept in Islam

00:00:41--> 00:00:49

and this concept mmm no we rahima hola hola Allah included it in his book criado signing him.

00:00:50--> 00:01:08

In this chapter, he titles it verbally afine what our cool Babylonia peeny what tawakkol which means the chapter pertaining to firm belief or certainty or the word here is the Athene

00:01:09--> 00:01:29

and tawakkol and perfect reliance on a lot of hands on without perfect reliance. So, the compiler mmm Noah we has combined two concepts in one chapter. And this is from his,

00:01:30--> 00:01:33

this is from his deep understanding of the deen.

00:01:35--> 00:01:47

And here he is compiling the concept. Here he wants to include some verses from the Quran and Hadith, prophetic traditions from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

that deal with your pain, and tawakkol your pain tawakkol.

00:01:57--> 00:02:33

Now, the reason why he's mentioned these two together, is because tawakkol tawakkol is one of the fruits, one of the fruits and the outcomes that take place and happen when you have yaqeen when you have your pain or certainty. So what is this word, your pain? What is this concept of your pain, all about? Your pain is when you have firm

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

belief, amen. steadfastness.

00:02:41--> 00:03:20

In the things that are lots of panel with Allah and His Prophet Mohammed Arsalan have spoken about, or have prophesized those things that we see and those things that we don't see. So with regards to those things that we cannot see, we your your pain, your your pain, allows you to believe in them and to view them as if you are actually seeing them. That's your thing, even though you can see them. I mean, we can say perform a hammer. So like I said, we can't see jabril

00:03:21--> 00:03:31

we certainly can't see our lives or gel in his life, but we have yet been that they are true. That's your thing. It's having that certainty

00:03:32--> 00:03:38

without any doubt that they exist, or they existed, or they will happen.

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

Whether we can see them or not. That's your your thing.

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

So

00:03:45--> 00:04:05

yaqeen is about having sure certainty without any doubt. The person who has this trait, as we said views, the unseen, that is mentioned in the Quran are mentioned in the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam as if it is something that they can see and this is the highest level of Eman.

00:04:06--> 00:04:13

You see, when it comes to the teachings of Islam, there are three levels. Level one we have

00:04:14--> 00:04:30

level two, which is higher. Amen belief. And then there's a third level. That third level is known as sn extend includes both Islam and Amen. It includes both Islam and Amen.

00:04:32--> 00:04:52

So Islam, Eman exam, and when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked about your son, he said it is it is to worship Allah as if you can see him, though you see him not. You know for surety that he sees you. That's what sn is. That's the highest level.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

That's the highest level believing in that which you cannot see. Yet we know Allah azzawajal exists through his

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

signs, through the prophets and messengers that he sent through the Scriptures that he sent and that he revealed on this earth.

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

This is how we know about the existence of Allah azza wa jal.

00:05:13--> 00:05:23

So, once you have this near yaqeen, once you have the certainty, this will give birth to what it will give birth to tawakkol

00:05:24--> 00:05:34

tawakkol reliance dependence on the Almighty Allah Allah azza wa jal and Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:36--> 00:05:53

it's very important to have this certainty in the teachings of Allah azza wa jal. Once you have that certainty, you got to make your life easier, you got to become more accepting of so many things that happen around you, and it's happening to you.

00:05:55--> 00:06:03

So, you start to depend on Allah azza wa jal, inwardly and outwardly, in sort of polar, which means divorce.

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

In the third verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, women get our can Allah He for who has to book, whoever depends or relies on Allah as though agenne

00:06:21--> 00:06:35

then he is sufficient for him, Allah is sufficient for this person, you have to have tawakkol and Allah subhana wa Taala. And through your cane, and tawakkol a believer will find rest.

00:06:36--> 00:06:43

When you believe and you submit, and you surrender and you realize the origin, you gotta find rest.

00:06:44--> 00:06:57

You got to know that whatever befalls you was never meant to miss you. Whatever missed you was never meant, was never meant to be for you as the proper size cell and he said in another Hadith that we mentioned earlier.

00:06:59--> 00:07:18

So you find through your pain, and through tawakkol you will find peace of mind and you'll find risks in this life. Because you know that everything that happens, happens with the permission of Allah azza wa jal happens through the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

Now the first verse that lmnop he chose for this chapter,

00:07:28--> 00:07:35

he mentions a verse from Surah Al Asad, and the verse number is 22 and

00:07:36--> 00:07:53

Allah Subhana Allah, He says, one minute zetta pilu has done Allahu Allah Sulu was haka la hora, Sulu, one of whom Illa Immonen, what Taslima

00:07:55--> 00:08:02

Allah in the Quran is what he says. And when the believers saw the zap, zap.

00:08:05--> 00:08:10

Companies or groups Confederates is one translation.

00:08:12--> 00:08:26

And when the believers saw the Azov saw these groups, they said, This is what Allah and His Messenger had promised us. And Allah and His Messenger spoke the truth

00:08:27--> 00:08:36

and increase them only in faith and acceptance. So what's he's talking about? What's the backdrop? What's the background to this area?

00:08:39--> 00:08:51

groups from various tribes who gathered to attack and to fight the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions.

00:08:52--> 00:09:08

They were some 10,000 10,000 soldiers are fighters strong, from the Quran, and others, gathering to attack the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to annihilate Islam to bring it to an end.

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

What did they do? They surrounded Medina.

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

They surrounded Medina.

00:09:16--> 00:09:24

And what happened is that the Sahaba many of them fell into despair and was shaken.

00:09:25--> 00:09:30

You know we're about to be attacked. And this could be the end of islam and the Muslims.

00:09:32--> 00:09:37

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In the 10th verse in Surah,

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

he says, it all come in focus on women, as far as I mean come, what is desire? What is absorbed wabarakatuhu will halogen whatever noon I believe, Nebula Luna now Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us what's taking place amongst the Sahaba when these Confederates have gotten

00:10:01--> 00:10:06

Allah says, Remember when they came at you, they came at you,

00:10:07--> 00:10:34

from above you, and from below you. And when eyes shifted in fields to the eyes of the believers and the hearts, the hearts reach the throats, though so like choking and the hearts reach the throats and you assumed about a lot of various assumptions. It's going to happen is this the end was not going to do to us various assumptions.

00:10:35--> 00:10:52

The next verse, Allah subhanaw taala says hoonah Lika tullia manana was Zulus in Zen and Shadi the Allah says they the believers were tested and shaken with a severe shaking.

00:10:53--> 00:11:17

So what happened? They also had that the companions of Rasul Allah, He saw Selim, were divided into two groups or two parties. There were those, the first group are those who are the hypocrites, the more nephew horn, the hypocrites and those with diseased hearts. Allah says,

00:11:18--> 00:11:32

What is the aku Mona Kona? This is the next verse, verse 12. What is yaku Luna Mona Kona one levena ficolo be him Morocco malware, Arden Allahu Allah Sulu in Aurora.

00:11:34--> 00:11:49

And remember when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease they said, and they said Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion.

00:11:51--> 00:11:57

That's what they said about Allah. They're the ones who are the hypocrites is the first group, the hypocrites and those who have disease huts.

00:11:58--> 00:12:18

So what is a hypocrite in Islam? The hypocrite is a person who manifests, who shows outwardly that they are a believer, I'm a Muslim, I'm a Mormon. I pray I do this. I do what a Muslim does, but they conceal, they hide the cover. They conceal, they hide their disbelief

00:12:19--> 00:12:27

because your belief it storehouse is is your heart. Your Eman is in the heart, no one can really see whether you're a believer or not.

00:12:29--> 00:12:46

So they said that what Allah has promised us is delusion. They said basically, how is it that Mohammed sauce Allah says he will conquer kisara face aren Sana in Yemen.

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

You know, Caesar in Santa Sinai and and he is surrounded by these groups now. How is it that's going to happen?

00:12:59--> 00:13:16

They don't have belief in what Allah has promised in the victory that is going to come to the Muslims. That's the first group. The second group that I spoke to you earlier about the second party or the million other believers now. So we have Mona coupon. And we have more Menon believers.

00:13:18--> 00:13:34

Listen to what verse 22 says, When I'm known as Zeb, but the believers when they saw the pod who they said had marijuana law who was this is what Allah and His Messenger promised

00:13:35--> 00:13:51

was sakala, who are a Zulu. And Allah and His Messenger have spoken the truth. One third of whom Illa Eman And what a steamer. And it increased them only in faith and acceptance, then look at the difference between the two parties.

00:13:53--> 00:13:57

It's a difference, the difference between like that of darkness and light.

00:13:58--> 00:14:22

So this group, then would mean on the believers, when they saw the exam. They were certain that after this trial was going to come to victory and the ease and that they will conquer the regions and the cities that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had prophesized to be conquered.

00:14:23--> 00:14:30

And this is exactly what eventuated this is exactly what happened. They did conquer them.

00:14:32--> 00:14:43

The main point that I remember knowing now is alluding to Why did he choose this area in this chapter of European and tawakkol. The main point is okay, that when I'm

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

done, Allahu Allah wa salam ala in Augustine, Christina, this is the highest level of email that you accept, that you accept, even though you cannot see you cannot see the light yourself. But you accept that

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

Wherever Allah azza wa jal has prophesize will happen without a shadow of doubt,

00:15:08--> 00:15:20

whether you can see it coming or not, this is telecoil. And this is a so this is the European, this is the certainty in what Allah azza wa jal and especially just saw Selim has said, Now, during the times of hardship,

00:15:22--> 00:16:06

and adversity, which we'll all go through, we all go through some struggle in life. A Muslim or a person should have a positive opinion of Allah zoa don't have firm faith, have steadfastness not to, you know, sell out their Eman, sell out their faith, because they're going through a hardship. Just because you're going through hardship or a trial or a calamity, and lose hope in Allah azza wa jal, and this is what happens to many people. They become weak, and they lose all hope. And they fall into despair. And then they fall into what they fall into error and they fall into destruction.

00:16:07--> 00:16:26

They probably apostate they become capitalists, because they're not holding on firm to the word of Allah azza wa jal in sorbitol Hajj, verse 11. Allah subhana wa tada Allah says, women a nasty man yeah Buddha Lucha Allah her

00:16:28--> 00:16:41

for in a Saba who higher on it might be in a saw but who fit Latin in Allah Allah he he hustler dunya will Fira there Lika, who will husana mubin

00:16:43--> 00:16:56

Allah azza wa jal says, And of the people there are some people who worship Allah on the edge, so about to fall off just on the on the on the border.

00:17:00--> 00:17:06

Those people if he is touched by good is reassured by would things happen, no problem.

00:17:08--> 00:17:26

But if he is struck by a trial, he turns on his face to the other direction, he has lost. He has become a loser in this life and in the Hereafter, because he didn't remain steadfast don't remain firm.

00:17:27--> 00:17:37

That is what is the manifest lost Allah Allah says, There Lika who will husana removing, that's the worst, the worst loss that you could go through.

00:17:40--> 00:17:45

There are many people and hamdulillah who are in a good state,

00:17:47--> 00:17:54

a good state of affairs, they are in well being they have good to have good health, things are going well for them.

00:17:56--> 00:18:02

And as soon however, as they are afflicted with a trial, or

00:18:04--> 00:18:17

a calamity or some sort of challenge in their life, they don't react in a proper way. Which leads some of them as I said to even apostate, they don't want to be part of the faith.

00:18:19--> 00:18:30

But we need to remember that this life is plagued with, with struggles and hardships. And that the only time that we will find rest.

00:18:32--> 00:18:49

complete rest and tranquility is in the hereafter. Once you place your foot in, otherwise, be prepared. Be prepared that you will go through a loss, hardship or misfortune something's going to happen.

00:18:51--> 00:18:59

It happened to the prophets and messengers it happened to the Sahaba it happened to those who follow in their footsteps to the best of people that happen to

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

and we have to have, it could be that you you you will have a difficult child.

00:19:09--> 00:19:26

Allah azza wa jal might decreed for you have a child with a disability that you have to now look after for the rest of your life. You were expecting a healthy child and Allah azza wa jal had planned something else for you. It could be loss of wealth.

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

It could be a problem that you have with your own health.

00:19:32--> 00:19:40

It could be many, many misfortunes that you go through in your life, but we need to be prepared and we need to be steadfast

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

inshallah hota Island, so we shouldn't hate what Allah azza wa jal has decreed for us. Because what Allah decrees for us could actually be good for us. Sometimes, that which you hate is actually a blessing. So

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

misfortune is actually a misfortune in disguise, it's actually a blessing and what appears to be a blessing sometimes, is actually a misfortune in disguise.

00:20:12--> 00:20:52

Way to be ready in sha Allah hutan so these verses and similar ones, teach us that we must always be wary of our hearts from, you know, becoming misguided and derailing from our faith and Muslim must always ask Allah azza wa jal to make his heart steadfast. And there are many idea that we learn from the prophet SAW Selim supplications, which teach us to have to look cool and also depends on us. For our hearts to be steadfast for example, very simple process Allah used to say Yama callable, colavita Lb Allah Dini

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

Oh turn of the hearts make my heart steadfast on your faith on your deen.

00:21:02--> 00:21:12

Allah azza wa jal is eternal of hearts. And that's why we have this is why this is a very important topic, talking about reliance on allies that were done in dependence on allies, though agenda.

00:21:13--> 00:21:15

The next area that even though we we mentioned,

00:21:17--> 00:21:20

under the topic of firm belief, and perfect reliance,

00:21:22--> 00:21:34

is the area from earlier I'm Ron verse 173. Whereby Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, a Latina woman so in the NASA pajama Allah

00:21:35--> 00:21:49

says that the home a man and what I do, has bounnam La Jolla and Milwaukee has spoon Allahu wa near Milwaukee, remember these words, has when a loved one in Milwaukee,

00:21:51--> 00:21:56

this area translates that those to whom the hypocrites said

00:21:57--> 00:22:08

Indeed, the people have gathered against you so Fie them, but it merely increase them in faith. And they said, sufficient for us is Allah

00:22:09--> 00:22:24

and he is the best disposal of affairs. Now, what is the background of this verse? This verse was revealed with regard to the Sahaba when they went through the hardships and losses of offered

00:22:25--> 00:22:30

when the Sahaba fought in offered, which is the second great battle in Islam.

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

They were struck

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

with injury.

00:22:38--> 00:23:01

And unfortunately, during this battle, 70 of the Sahaba died or they were martyred Shaheed 70 of them. So it was a big blow for the Muslims at that time. And it was said to them after this battle, that Abu sufian Abu Sufyan and the chiefs of Quraysh.

00:23:02--> 00:23:12

We're planning another attack. So they're already they already feel somewhat defeated, because of the loss of the 70s have had.

00:23:13--> 00:23:40

And so now news reached them that I was a fan of the chiefs of courage, they're coming now, while they're in this state, they go to come they go to attack you to try and bring it into Islam and the Muslims. And so they wanted to wipe wipe them out. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he instructed them to prepare themselves against the enemies, and they responded without any hesitation.

00:23:42--> 00:23:48

And don't forget during the Battle of the prophets, Allah Allah he was selling himself was injured.

00:23:50--> 00:24:11

And this is the battle in which Hamza, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also martyred. Allah subhana wa tada le Imran was 172. He tells us the response of these companions and levinas dejavu lillahi wa Suleyman, Burkina Faso, the humble

00:24:12--> 00:24:27

Latina woman whom what taco at your own oven, those of us the believers who responded to Allah and the messenger after injury had struck them for those who did good among them and fit Allah is a great reward.

00:24:28--> 00:24:52

So it was actually set to the Sahaba it was set to the Sahaba feed them for those people who are coming to attack you feed them however they were fueled with a man instead of fearing they said, No, we are going out. Amen. Thank you honey. They increase them in belief this talk only increasing in belief in Amen.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Because every time I believe that goes through hardships and tears,

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

His image should increase, his image should decrease. The challenge is to keep your Eman high and strong

00:25:08--> 00:25:14

through your pain through tawakkol and Allah subhanaw taala.

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

So, the Muslim has the thing that Allah

00:25:22--> 00:25:30

that, that Allah subhanaw taala will make him victorious and successful. And this happens for supper. And this happens through patience

00:25:32--> 00:25:48

and that for success to come, there must be some hardship. And after hardship comes ease as we learn and through and through Masada and faraja Malika, what

00:25:50--> 00:26:14

you saw when the man was you, sir, and that after hardship comes ease as what Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran. Yes, the success in the victory could be just around the corner, but many of us are hasty. And we throw, we throw it we throw it in, and we just we forfeit a great deal of reward and we forfeit a positive outcome

00:26:15--> 00:26:33

which was just around the corner. And that's why we have to exercise patience you see how all these things are interconnected? sobor patience yaqeen certainty to what could dependence on allies origin these are all concepts that you remember no, we have has Danny

00:26:35--> 00:26:42

included in another sila hain as chapters because of their importance in that they are connected to one another.

00:26:43--> 00:26:52

So what did they say? What did they say? They said hacer una La Jolla, a Milwaukee when they heard about when they heard about,

00:26:54--> 00:27:23

you know, this attack, they said sufficient for us is Allah and he is the best disposal of affairs. The result of this increased Eman and dependence and a lot What happened? Allah subhanaw taala tells us in verse 174, of Le Emraan, fun collabo binimetinib min Allah He was Lyn lemon zest home soon whatever the word Allah will love was a function of him.

00:27:24--> 00:27:41

So they turned with favor from Allah and bounty, no harm, having touched them. And they pursued the pleasure of Allah and Allah is the possessor of great bounty. So what happened, the mortmain on the believers,

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

those who fought in awkward

00:27:46--> 00:27:51

and was struck with injuries and the loss of those, the 70 of the Sahaba.

00:27:53--> 00:28:02

They set out to fight Abu Sufyan. They set out to fight I was a fan and his army. However, guess what, they were not there.

00:28:03--> 00:28:11

They were not there. They had retreated. They had gone back, change of mind.

00:28:12--> 00:29:05

They went back and decided not to fight the Prophet sallallahu I knew he was selling them and the companions. And so it was actually recorded for the Sahaba as if they had fought in a husba in a battle, they had the reward of as well because in the Mallanna do Binya actions are based upon the intentions. So it was counted for them as a battle that they have fought in even though they did not fight in it. Allah subhanho wa Taala says from Allah boo banjarmasin min Allah He will fuddling lamium says when soon today returned with favor from Allah and bounty no harm having touched him and then Allah subhanaw taala said in Valley como chiffon, you have with Alia, who Fela Taha foom waha,

00:29:05--> 00:29:14

Fulani in kuntum that is only shape on that is only the Satan who, who frightens you.

00:29:15--> 00:29:28

That fear that you have is coming from the shape on Satan the whispers of the shape on the whispers are checked on. No don't do this, you this you might go through this loss. This is what happened to you.

00:29:31--> 00:29:44

So Allah says that is only there is only shavon who frightens you have his supporters chip on and his supporters try and frighten you? So Fie them not,

00:29:45--> 00:29:50

but fi me fear Allah azza wa jal be conscious of Allah azza wa jal

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

if you are indeed believers, the movement is the one who has the fear of Allah azza wa jal first and foremost

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

And he speaks the truth. And he does not see the blame of anybody who's going to blame him. But he speaks the truth

00:30:11--> 00:30:22

even if it's towards a tyrant and oppressor, not fearing for your life but all always speaking the truth and defending the truth.

00:30:23--> 00:30:28

The next verse that mmm no we he mentioned is from Surah Al Furqan

00:30:29--> 00:30:31

alphacard verse 58.

00:30:32--> 00:30:46

What's the word Kal El Hijo de la de la wa sahbihi hum de Vaca v v Lu v baggy hubiera. And rely upon the EverLiving who does not die in other words, relying on lies.

00:30:47--> 00:30:54

reliance on Allah depend on Allah has tawakkol on Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:55--> 00:31:14

and exalt with his praise itself, along with his praise and sufficient is he to be with the sins of his servants acquainted. So in other words depend and rely on Allah for all of your affairs, the small ones, the baby ones, and the large ones and the huge ones.

00:31:15--> 00:31:18

All the fears, put your trust in Allah azza wa jal

00:31:19--> 00:31:22

if Allah subhana wa gyla, has

00:31:24--> 00:31:28

not decreed for it to be easy for you to saco to be easy.

00:31:30--> 00:31:57

No matter how many people gather, to try and make it easy for you, as we've seen in the previous hadith of previous lectures, that if all the people were together to benefit you, and Allah has not decreased, for you to be benefited with that thing, you will not benefit. And if all the people in the world if all the people gathered to try and harm you, they will not harm you if Allah azza wa jal has not decreed for you to be harmed.

00:31:59--> 00:32:17

So, there is also proof in this verse that Allah azza wa jal will never die or cease to exist. Our creator Allah. Allah never dies. Allah will never cease to exist. Allah has no beginning. Allah has no end.

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

He's perfect.

00:32:21--> 00:32:36

He's our Creator. He doesn't sleep. He doesn't get tired. A lot of panel with Al Baqarah. In the greatest area in number n, verse 255. He says, Only Allahu La

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

Ilaha Illa one Hi, you

00:32:44--> 00:32:46

leta Hodo sinner,

00:32:50--> 00:32:52

Allah subhanaw taala. He says,

00:32:53--> 00:33:04

Allah there is no deity In other words, there is no god worthy of worship except him. Allah hula know ELO La Ilaha Illa, who

00:33:06--> 00:33:11

will lie this morning me coming here to this lecture. On the phone, I had a sister give me a call.

00:33:13--> 00:33:16

And she said to me, I don't have a religion.

00:33:18--> 00:33:26

I don't have a religion. And I have also lost. I've lost my son whose son, one day old died.

00:33:29--> 00:33:31

And she said to me,

00:33:32--> 00:34:06

and I've come across some Muslims and I've started to read about Islam and look into Islam. And she goes and she says, I know there is a God out there. And as the fifth law she says, I believe that there is a God so I have the love of talking to her and telling her about our candle man and the pillars of faith. Are you ready to embrace Islam? If this is what you believe, if you believe there's one God Allah if you believe in the angels if you believe that in the in the prophets that was sent to mankind Hamas I sent him as the last in the seal of all the prophets and messengers, if you believe in all the books of scriptures in the Quran is the seal of the Scriptures. And he

00:34:06--> 00:34:18

believed in the Day of Judgment, you believe that there's going to be heaven in hell you believe that Alaska has decreased all he knows all he knows what's happening, what's happening in the future. Do you believe as I said, well let you let the lot

00:34:19--> 00:34:27

so la, la la de la ilaha illa who, just before I came here, she said she had to unlearn Allah Illallah Muhammad Rasul.

00:34:29--> 00:34:52

People are ready to embrace Islam. People are ready to embrace it, but we have to talk to them. This is no need for any sort of any magical words just the truth, the truth is powerful enough. The truth is powerful. Just say it as it is. So, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:34:54--> 00:34:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

will continue will live forever.

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

But there's no beginning or end doesn't die as this verse what's what girl and the pin Allah hi Isla de la jolla mood upon the one who is ever living and who does not die, very clear proof that Allah azza wa jal will never cease to exist.

00:35:18--> 00:35:59

The next verse that we mentioned, in verse three, he says women have to work kallada lucky for who has that whoever depends on Allah, Allah is sufficient for him. So when you depend and rely on him, he is sufficient for you. If you depend on other than Allah azza wa jal you put your dependence on the creation instead of the Creator instead of the Creator Allah subhana wa gyla then he will leave it to that which you are depending on and what is going to happen sooner or later. You are not going to get what you want to achieve or receive the next verse that mmm no we mentioned, he says, this is a very beautiful verse.

00:36:01--> 00:36:04

That is from the eighth chapter of the Quran.

00:36:08--> 00:36:24

Allah Subhana hutan the second verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in Mineola, Allah Xena either Lu Kira Allahu wa Jalla kulu whom is a truly As I lay him, to that whom he man and why Allah became at our Kenyan

00:36:26--> 00:36:34

Allah here gives us the definition of a true believer in them for sure. certainty

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

surely indeed

00:36:38--> 00:36:57

in lemma min on the believers, those Alevtina either to Kerala whenever Allah Allah is mentioned his teachings are his name. It has appeared Allah Allah has mentioned they have become faithful What do you let kulu whom the hearts are moved?

00:37:00--> 00:37:04

Unfortunately there are many people whose hearts are not move they're like rocks.

00:37:05--> 00:37:15

Whether you mentioned Allah you mentioned the prophets I send them you mentioned this you mentioned judgment day they had a like rocks. These people need to worry

00:37:20--> 00:37:32

they have Jani this the Center for silence are pious predecessors. Some of them if you said to them it's up Illa if you said to them, fee Allah

00:37:33--> 00:37:42

and let's say they had for example something in their hand. If you said a few Allah whatever was in the head would fall out of the fee. He just said to me fee Allah.

00:37:44--> 00:37:50

Any of us unfortunately we are so far away from this. Well uh hola La quwata illa Allah.

00:37:51--> 00:38:16

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says what is truly at Allah him as to who and the believers when his Verses are recited that when a man and the man increases to the true believer is one whereby when he listens to a verse from the end or he reads a verse from the end then he's he's a man should increase,

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

not decrease

00:38:21--> 00:39:04

imen should increase what either toliet ie him A to Zed. That's from Elan and what Allah Rob Bohemia to work alone. And upon the load or their Rob they rely. And that is the point that Mmm, though he is pointing out here, Allah says in this verse, that one of the qualities of a believer, one of the qualities and there are many other qualities, but we don't have time to go through them. But one of the qualities of a believer is that he puts his trust in Allah azza wa jal, he knows that as the hardship there will become ease, there is not going to go about and behaving and conducting himself in a way that is displeasing to Allah azza wa jal.

00:39:06--> 00:39:13

So, we must believe in our hearts. So here, why not be haematoxylin

00:39:15--> 00:39:29

when we talk about this tawakkul and the loss of pantalla or this belief, it is about believing all the things that are lost patella has said and all the things that Prophet Mohammed's assailant has said, and accepting them

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

and accepting them.

00:39:33--> 00:39:55

Those They are the ones who depend, of course, so solely on the last panel with that, then remember, never we he mentioned some prophetic gems. He mentioned some Hadith inshallah huhtala. We'll wrap up with some of the Hadith that he never know we have a Hema who loves Allah. He mentioned in the chapter of yaqeen and tawakkol and the first Hadees that I want to just share with you

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

is the hadith of Ibn adverse whether your loved one which is found

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

bahaya Muslim,

00:40:02--> 00:40:35

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said I was shown the past nations. And I sort of preferred that a very small group. In other words less than 10 in total with him and other prophet who was accompanied by only one or two men and some didn't even have any didn't even have one follower. So the prophets and messengers that came before Mohammed Salah Salem, they had different number of followings, some had no followers, some had one, some had a few, some had multiple, multiple followers, many followers, multitude of followers.

00:40:38--> 00:40:42

And suddenly, I was shown a huge crowd and I thought they were my own.

00:40:44--> 00:40:54

I thought they were my people, my followers, but I was told that this is Moosa and his people but look towards the other side, I looked and behold, a great assemblage a great deal of people.

00:40:56--> 00:41:22

I was told, these are your people, and amongst them, there are 70,000 who will enter agenda without being taken into account or take into account or torment. 70,000 of those people will go straight to Jenna. Straight ticket strategy in the no Tom Nope, no accountability, no torment, nothing. 70,000 Muslims will go.

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

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he stood up and he went into his apartment. And the companions began to guess who might be those who would enter agenda without any accounting or torment? Wow. 70 who could they be? Who could they possibly be? Who will enter agenda just like that?

00:41:43--> 00:41:47

So some of them they said probably they are the ones who kept company with the prophecy.

00:41:49--> 00:42:03

You know, close proximity with the prompts I send them also have other they said probably they are the ones who have been born as Muslims. And I've never associated anyone with ALLAH subhanaw taala in worship because they do that [???] because the worst crime those who've never committed ship.

00:42:06--> 00:42:16

Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out and he asked, What do you enjoy? The process says, so what are you discussing? What are you guys discussing?

00:42:17--> 00:42:27

And so they told him, and then he said, referring to the 70,000, he said, they are those who do not make Rookie

00:42:28--> 00:42:46

rookie error, which is blowing over themselves after reciting the plan, or some prayers and supplications the process of telling you to only say no seek it. So those that don't do rookie on themselves, and they don't even seek to look at for others to do this recital upon them.

00:42:48--> 00:42:50

No perceived omens.

00:42:51--> 00:42:55

So in other words, they're not pessimistic, pessimistic people.

00:42:57--> 00:43:09

But they keep their trust in their rub, but they keep their reliance is on Allah so why do they always depend on Allah as the witch and this is why mmm No, we mentioned this hadith here.

00:43:11--> 00:43:18

Because of this very statement, they trust Allah azzawajal they always put their trust in Allah azza wa jal

00:43:20--> 00:44:08

on this one of the Sahaba Okasha His name is Okasha, even mix on he stood up and he said, Yeah, rasulillah Pray, pray to Allah pray to Allah to make me one of them. The prophet SAW Selim said anthem in whom? Allahu Akbar, already one out of the 70,001 of them is Okasha, even my son, he said, you were one of them. Then another man stood up, I said, he said the same thing and said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the famous statement, he said, subaqua via cache cache has already beaten you. So he already has my daughter, and he has my blessing that he was one of them. But now, Danny, you've missed out to be one of those in my life. So

00:44:10--> 00:44:26

the point here is the importance of having trust in Allah azza wa jal could make you included is one of the 70,000 who go and other report says that each one of those 70,000 will take 70,000 I love one

00:44:27--> 00:44:35

another Hadith, Hadith even at best also the love and humor found in Bukhari and Muslim as well.

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:44:40--> 00:44:40

he used to make

00:44:41--> 00:44:51

fun of most of the prophesied sell them. We should we should memorize. Allahu molucca Islam to what became meant to while a cat our cat.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

What a Laker and up to be careful some to Allahumma inni

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

Also be Exotica La Ilaha Illa and and to Bill Lenny and tell how you la de la mode well Jin well in suyama tune in is

00:45:13--> 00:45:48

the process la casa our LA to you I have submitted and in you do I believe and in you I put my trust to you do I turn and for you I argued, Oh Allah I secret fridge, I seek refuge with you through your power, there is none worthy of worship except you alone and you safeguard against going astray You are the EverLiving The one who sustains and protects all that exists, the one who never dies, whereas human beings and jinn will all die. Beautiful to have to memorize.

00:45:50--> 00:46:10

In another Hadith is even adverse for their loved one human scientists are hit by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said here that when the prophet SAW Selim when when sorry when Prophet Ibrahim Allah He said Abraham will Prophet Ibrahim when Abraham was thrown into the fire. He said, What did he say?

00:46:11--> 00:46:27

He said, Allah alone is sufficient for us and He is the best of Disposer of affairs has been Allah who wanted a man working. He said hacer una La Jolla and San Joaquin. Remember when these people they

00:46:28--> 00:46:35

gathered a massive fire to bring an end to Ibrahim after he smashed their idols?

00:46:36--> 00:46:59

And they catapulted him into the fire but Allah azza wa jal he said to the fire, Cooney, Allahu Allah then was Elena be cold, not too cold, be cold, and be peaceful, better than wassalam and Allah Ibrahim and the fire never harmed Ibrahim Allah He said, because the fire Allah azza wa jal commanded it not to him.

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

So

00:47:03--> 00:47:19

So he said, so did the Messenger of Allah Mohammed Salim when he was told a great army of the pagans had gathered against you that we spoke about before. What did Mohammed Salim said say he said the same thing that Ibrahim before him said has been a law.

00:47:21--> 00:47:36

So when you hear of a bad news, there is something that may be for you. You say hacer una la when you're working? What are you saying here? You are saying and you are acknowledging that Allah is sufficient for us and He is the best Disposer of affairs.

00:47:38--> 00:47:53

So Allah subhanaw taala Jani melas patella make us from amongst those who always depend on him and have to work with and clean analystpath Island. So in the worst of circumstances, brothers and sisters in Islam, one should have faith and trust in Allah to produce another Hadith

00:47:54--> 00:47:58

that mmm no we included handpicked for this topic.

00:47:59--> 00:48:02

Is the hadith of Abu huraira the Allahu Allahu Allah which is fantasize.

00:48:03--> 00:48:11

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yet hoorah, ginetta acquirement. Eager to miss the fire, he said,

00:48:12--> 00:48:21

a group of people meaning both men and women, whose hearts will be like the hearts of birds will enter Jin.

00:48:23--> 00:48:28

It has been interpreted that such people are those who put their trust in Allah azza wa jal

00:48:29--> 00:48:35

and another narration are those who have tender hearts. Good hearts towards other people. They'll entertain

00:48:41--> 00:48:58

another Hadith that mmm that we mentioned, which is found in Bukhari and Muslim it is the hadith of Jabba rhodiola when we reported, I went in an expedition along with the prophesied settlement in the direction of nudged with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned, I also returned with him.

00:48:59--> 00:49:15

Then the midday sleep overtook us in a valley, full of prickly shrubs. The Messenger of Allah wa sallam got down and the people scattered around seeking shade under the trees. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he hung up his sword on the branch of a tree.

00:49:16--> 00:49:41

We were enjoying asleep when the Messenger of Allah wa sallam called us and lo, there was a desert Arab bidwill near him. He the prophet SAW long while he was selling them said, This man brandished my sword over me while I was asleep. I woke up and saw it in his head, and she's imagine that he has the profits, I sell his sword in his hand, and the person in front of him.

00:49:42--> 00:50:00

He asked, Who will protect you from me? The man is asking who's got to protect you? He's asking the profit center. And then he asked, and the process I sell him three times of Allah, Allah, Allah he had up he had to work with Allah subhana wa time and so he didn't pay

00:50:00--> 00:50:27

In in another narration, Jabberwocky? Allahu anhu said, we accompany the process, Helen in the campaign of that recall. And we left the messenger of silent you take risks under the shadow of a tree, one of the most frequent polytheist came to him. The soul of the Messenger of Allah wa sallam was hanging on a tree, he drew it and he said, Are you afraid of me? The Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam said, no, then he said, who will then protect you from me and the Messenger of Allah

00:50:29--> 00:50:31

sallallahu sallam, he replied Allah azza wa jal

00:50:34--> 00:50:50

in another narration of abubaker and ismat. At the mushnik, he asked, Who will protect you from me and the Messenger of Allah, he said, Allah. And as soon as he said this, the sword fell down from his hand, and the Messenger of Allah, quote, the sword

00:50:51--> 00:51:01

mentioned that the message of us are silent, he caught the sword, and he asked him, who will protect you from me, you know, cut back to who's got to protect you now from me.

00:51:02--> 00:51:04

So he said, forgive me.

00:51:06--> 00:51:14

Forgive me, messenger of assassin and said, on the condition that you testify that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah.

00:51:15--> 00:51:37

He said, No, no, if you wanted to stay a Muslim, but I promise you, that I shall not fight against you know shall be with any of those who will fight against you. And the purpose I said, it said, Let him go. And so this man, he went back, he went back to his people and his companions and he said, I have come to you from one of the best of mankind.

00:51:38--> 00:51:40

Actions speak louder than words.

00:51:42--> 00:51:49

This is the way that we introduce Islam to people not by force, Islam was never spread by the sword.

00:51:51--> 00:52:07

And so we show how Islam, the benevolence of Islam, the pardoning of Islam, the forgiveness of Islam. We see here how the gracious attitude that the problem has taught us to be with people

00:52:08--> 00:52:12

and the importance of utmost trust in Allah azza wa jal.

00:52:13--> 00:52:32

Another Hadith is Fantasyland. Timothy, is the hadith of Omar Haji Allahu anhu. Who said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, if you all depend on Allah, with jus reliance have to kill him.

00:52:33--> 00:52:47

He would certainly give you provision as he gives it to birds who go forth hungry in the morning and return with a full belly in the dusk. Think about the birds who gives food and drink towards birds.

00:52:49--> 00:52:50

In a small Sparrow.

00:52:51--> 00:52:58

They sit up in the morning looking for the food and drink. They depend on Allah azza wa jal, Allah azza wa jal is the provider.

00:53:01--> 00:53:02

In another Hadith

00:53:05--> 00:53:10

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he teaches us when we go to Tibet to go to sleep. He says

00:53:12--> 00:53:33

to say this, I love him a slim to enough see right over to what he like, was a what to an MRI like what trovare La Raza baton, baton la lemon Wella Mangia Minka Illa like Toby kita, Nicola De Anza. verbena, big cat lady, or

00:53:34--> 00:53:36

the process, Selim said who ever says this.

00:53:40--> 00:53:49

He said, Whoever recites these words and if a person dies that night in his sleep, he dies, he would die in the true religion.

00:53:50--> 00:53:55

In case he remains alive to the morning, he will obtain a great deal of goodness.

00:53:57--> 00:54:22

A very, some beautiful words, our law, I have submitted myself to you, I have turned my face to you and trusted my affairs to you. I committed my back to you out of desire for you and fear of you expecting your reward and fearing your punishment. There is no refuge and no place of safety from you but with you, I believe in the book you have revealed in the Prophet you have sent

00:54:27--> 00:54:41

another Hadith, which has found them Bukhari and Muslim it's the Hadith about the subject of the Levant, who Allah that when the messenger of us are silent, and I were in the cave of Seoul, I saw the feet of the polytheists the Muslims

00:54:42--> 00:54:57

who were above us at the mouth of the cave, and that was on the eve of the migration. I, I submitted a messenger of Allah. If one of them were to look down below his feet, he would see us so he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

He said abubaker

00:55:04--> 00:55:18

What do you think of to his third is Allah? He said, Now van Luca? Yeah. Melbourne Luca? Yeah, abubaker be slain Allahu salifu Houma.

00:55:20--> 00:55:26

Allah is the third. Allah is there who look after us and this happened when they were. You see there was a

00:55:27--> 00:55:47

there was a when the prophet SAW Selim was migrating with avoca. He was the last, the last to leave Mecca. And they were headed towards Medina and the machico, they had some money, huge reward. Whoever can capture the prophet SAW Selim and Oba you know, duralife huge reward.

00:55:48--> 00:56:00

And so, they had to actually at one point come into a cave, which is known as the Cave of phone and they hid in the cave. And the mystery con, we're actually at the mouth of the cave and Oba could consider their feet.

00:56:01--> 00:56:16

And he's really worried now about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, not worried about himself. And so the prophet SAW Selim reminds him about the importance of the Walker and lots of others depend on Allah. Even in a situation a loss of panel data can make people blind.

00:56:18--> 00:56:26

He can really not let them see something which is probably so obvious, but you'd have to have firm belief and tawakkol analysis panel with Tyler.

00:56:28--> 00:56:34

There are other ideas at the moment No, we mentioned and I do

00:56:35--> 00:56:45

this, that I encourage you inshallah tada to, to memorize and to remember, but the last Hadith I want to mention that he mentioned his hadith of Anna sagala, one who, in certainly, Timothy,

00:56:46--> 00:56:53

that there were two brothers in the days of the prophet SAW Selim and one of them used to attend the Prophet circle, to seek knowledge.

00:56:54--> 00:57:03

And the other use to earn their living. So one of them is going up, one of the brothers is going out to unliving. And one of them is attending the masjid and attending this the study circles.

00:57:04--> 00:57:22

And once the latter, you're the one who is going out and earning a living, he complained to the province, I sent him against his brother, you know, he doesn't earn a living, I'm always the one that's going out there earning a living his he just, he's got an easy, you know, he just seeks the knowledge and I have to go and do all the hard work and I have to provide for him.

00:57:23--> 00:57:39

So the prophets I send them He replied, he said, la, la, Rosa, Kobe, perhaps you are being provided because of him. So this money that you're earning in this job that you have, maybe it's because of your brother, that you have this job.

00:57:42--> 00:57:47

So, what this also teaches us is that

00:57:49--> 00:58:02

if you are helping somebody to seek knowledge, if you are contributing, to building, you know, a believer, to building a day, a chef

00:58:04--> 00:58:09

or someone who's working in the cause of Allah, Allah azza wa jal, maybe blessing yourself

00:58:11--> 00:58:21

by giving your money to an external organization who was doing that, well, you can't do that by yourself. You're not eloquent, you don't have the resources or the skills but you have money.

00:58:23--> 00:59:04

Then you could be making a financial contribution. And Allah azza wa jal in return, blesses your money, enhance his learning and you have to spend on them. Or maybe Allah azza wa jal is actually helping helping you. And Subhanallah how it becomes a win win situation whereby you become a winner and that person is a winner and the community is a winner as a result of the efforts and the fruits of the of the data that this person has gained.
