smilla Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi h mine, or praises due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all those who follow His guidance to follow his way until the last day respected brothers and sisters in Islam, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Today inshallah huzzah Allah we are going to explore a chapter from the Quran it is the 100 and third chapter 103 of the Quran, it is called sola to Lhasa surah to Lhasa. The surah is a sutra which consists of five, eight or five verses, and it is a surah to Nakia Nakia. When it comes
to the Quran, the Quran is broken up into madonie and mechi. That is the chapters that were revealed before the migration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to Medina, those chapters that were revealed during that period are known as the sower, the chapters that are makiya that were revealed in Mecca or that period.
And then there are the chapters that were revealed. After the migration of the prophet SAW Selim, and they're known as madonia, because most of them were revealed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, City of Medina, Medina munawwara. So we'll find that the themes that there are common themes of makiya and madonia sewer samacheer sewer mainly deal with the hereafter mainly deal with gender jahannam aspects of belief, signs of the hour, they're mainly the makiya sewer, okay, the madonie. So, sewer or the chapters that are that are madonia those chapters are mainly dealing with the jurisprudence side of things or rules and regulations and legislation. That's all happening now
and taking place in Medina. So for example, we know that solid that was probably revealed towards the very end of the Makita period, but then we look at cm for example, fasting in Ramadan was in the second year of the prophet SAW Selim, Sandra Zakat rules related to the Hajj for example. Okay, and lots of regulations that we find in the madonie period. So this sort of sort of answer was revealed was revealed prior to the migration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to Medina now a very important sorta
and emammal sheffey Rahim Allah who to Allah, who is the founder of the Shafi a school of thought, one of the four schools of thought, mmm chef Avraham, mahalo Thailand, he said, he said, Loma Anza Allahu taala, Allah Kunti he hoogendoorn in La Habra, his surah la cafard whom he said that had Allah subhana wa Taala not sent down
upon his creation as a budget as evidence or as proof except for this Sora except for this chapter, it would have been sufficient because now this Sora although it's only five a yet, okay, five verses
the message of the surah is very strong. The message of the surah really encapsulates the message of the Quran. Okay, so till Asad surah to Lhasa. And this surah consists of three verses at least of the five three verses that direct that guide a person towards gender. So, this is what we want to know we want to know how are we going to be successful, how are we going to
be get to gender without any punishment and this surah will answer this question. So, Allah subhanahu wa Tyler, he begins this surah with an oath, an oath a person and we find this through this happens or takes place by the letter Well, the letter Well, we find an operand for example, what loja when lady when the house well fetcher okay? This is an oath Allah, Allah is making an oath by his creation. Now as creation as human beings, we make an oath only by Allah subhanho wa Taala. We say well law, okay, we say what law
now we can use other than the letter well, like the law, or any other ways of making an oath, making an oath, but making sure that it's an oath by Allah subhanho wa Taala. You might say, what will gather what Abu Qatada which means by the Lord of the cat, okay by the Lord by the love of al Qaeda, who is of Aqaba, Allah subhana wa Tada. So he's still making an oath by Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said men can remain competitive.
Failure is believed that whoever from amongst you is going to make an oath if you want to say if you want to use Allah subhanaw taala his name or make an oath, then make it in Allah subhanho wa Taala his name, okay always make it but don't be in the habit of always
mentioning Allah subhanahu otile his name so you're not always saying well about everything unless there is a necessity or a need, or there is a dire need to do so. So Allah subhanaw taala makes an oath here and he says one last acid. Okay, now also means the time now we know that acid is also one of the names of the five daily praise. Okay, Salatu Lhasa that takes place before Margaret time. Now there has been there has been a commentary or translation that this word alacer is referring to the very pritz solid philosophy, okay, and we know that selectel acid is a very important prayer, and actually the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, masala alborada in either halogen, that
whoever prays the two cold prayers, meaning the two prayers that are prayed in the coldest part of the day and night, okay? Then he will antigenic now the coldest, the coldest prayer of the night would be fidget. And the coldest prayer of the day would be acid because we know that at that acid time, at the onset of time, we know that it's a very cool period, unlike when the the the sun's heat rate raise is quite intense. So there have been some explanation to say it's referring to Alaska.
Likewise, Allah subhanaw taala in Nepal, and he says Happy to Allah Salatu was Salam ala rooster, he said, maintain the press. And the middle press the middle pray here would be acid if you if you look at the five daily prayers, we have fudger we have verhuur we have acid in the middle Muslim in Asia. So there have there has been an emphasis on selectel acid. Now, what seems to be the more general commentary when we look at the books of Tafseer the books of commentary, we say that this word Alaska is referring to time, this time, that encapsulates what it encapsulates all of our actions that we do during the day that we do during the night that we do in the morning that we do in the
evening. This is in another word for this, this word acid is at the root at the root, which is which is all of time, which is all of time. So when the acid and Allah subhanaw taala here is making an oath by an acid and which encapsulates all of our movements, all of our movements that take place when they take place during this period. Okay, this asset. Now,
when asked me
and when it comes to time, when it comes to time, it's very important to note that Islam has placed again much emphasis on on taking advantage of your time and not wasting your time. And again, as I read earlier, Allah mentions time through different ways whether he's saying what and what is the period is the time period between the sunrise and voer and there is a certain period that you can price for that. And when federal budget is a very blessed time, and this is the time that Muslims you know, wake up at the break of dawn to perform the first prayer of the day. Okay when budget There is also when lay and the night Oh well when the harlot the day okay, so when it comes to time,
Muslims really must take advantage of their time and use their time wisely and really
not turn this this time, this precious time that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with into missed opportunities. A very beautiful Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Iranian Clemson problems he said take advantage take advantage of five before five, five before five in this hadith
and he said and he begins by saying that take advantage of your Shabaab
Shabaab bigger public army before, take advantage of your youth take advantage of when you are young. You know when you're you are young, you have a lot of energy, you know, children, young youth, you know, they have a lot of energy and in Islam, you are a youth between the age of 15 and 33 in some sense, even 40 Okay, so take advantage of this, this period of time. This that you have this youth, this youthfulness that that exists in you, okay when you get before you get older because when you get older, you're not going to have that zeal and that energy
And even the time because you're going to be preoccupied with so many things when you do become older you know having a family having your business having so many other distractions or duties that you need to attend to. So the first thing he said take advantage of your youth before your old age and then he said take advantage of your your good health okay. Before take advantage of your health before you become sick before you become sockin public soccer me so you're so high you could have said hamdullah you might have good health today. But how do you know that tomorrow or one day that you might become disabled that you may not be able to do the things that you're doing today you
might have a disability of some sort to take advantage of the fact that you have the good health okay. So we have your youth take advantage of us before you your old age take advantage of your youth sorry your health before your sickness and then the third one he said he said and take advantage of your wealth your richness having wealth before he became poor yes you you may have wealth now you have you have money now that you can spend but how do you know that you're going to have that long term how many people were very wealthy and then all of a sudden they became poor. So once you have the wealth give much sadaqa contribute much to Islamic causes. And and and other
projects that will bring about that will give you they will give you so many returns so much happiness so Pamela they say that money can't buy happiness, okay, but it all depends on how you spend it. If you are spending your money on people who are poor who are needy, well light it brings you happiness, it brings you happiness when you give money to a worthy cause you find it does instill happiness. So can money buy happiness is it can buy you happiness, but it does depend on how you were spending that money okay.
So take advantage of the money that you have okay before you become poor take advantage and he said of your for us before your preoccupation take advantage of your
take advantage of your spare time in any spare time that you have. Okay, we are now for example in the month of Ramadan right so during the month of Ramadan take advantage of the spare time and read lots of for an okay read lots and lots of power and the month of Ramadan is the month of Quran. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to recite the Quran much during Ramadan. And we find many people hamdullah following in the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim and making a serious effort when it comes to reciting the Quran and ensuring that they at least complete the entire recitation of the Quran. During the month of Ramadan, some people will recite it, you know, several times, you
know very very committed to the court and very dedicated to the court and, and so we shouldn't be I mean, the Quran really was not revealed to be placed on our shelves but it was revealed revealed to be instilled in ourselves, okay, the Quran is really is our compass is our compass of life, it gives us direction just like for example, a ship without a compass is not going to go anywhere. Okay. Likewise, this is the Quran the Quran is our guide. The Quran really guides us to that which is most upright to that which will lead to our hidayah that which leads to our steadfastness, we need to make more of a conscious effort and to to to interact more with the poor and to understand the poor
and to apply the code and to read the code and to listen to the poor and even from others. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam One day, he turned to he turned to one of the Sahaba and he said to him, recite the Quran to me, he said, Do you want me to recite to you and the Quran was revealed to you. He said, I like to hear it from others. And even after that, so he was reading the prophet SAW Selim began to weep. He said enough. I've heard Yanni he impacted his heart but the Quran has been revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, man, you've been a fan of the Allahu Allahu wa he said, Well, la de la hora de una Masha and I mean, Karolina rabina. He said, he said,
how our hearts been pure, by her, you know, pure, we would never have had enough, we will never have thirst for recycling the poor n and will never have been quenched. No, you never get quenched. You always want more, you always want more. So Alhamdulillah way to take advantage of the free time that we have, because before we come preoccupied with something else in our lives, and the fifth one, the fifth one that he said when he was talking about taking advantage of fire before five, he said and he this one pretty much encapsulates it all. He said your life before your death. Take advantage of them.
left now me and you are alive with hamdulillah I mean, before you know it, we will be dead will be from amongst those people in the graves, those people who aren't six foot under the ground also. So we need to take advantage now of our life, making so many contributions towards, towards Yani, this life that we have, and calling others to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes, you can do so through a message through an email through your words, through your wealth. And we will talk about Jihad we're talking about you know, struggling for the cause of Allah subhanaw taala Yes, there is a physical Jihad that takes place on the battlefield between, you know, between the forces of of good and the
forces of evil, but there's also a Jihad with your wealth, a Jihad with, you know, yourself, you know, a Jihad on yourself not to do the Haram to do the Helen. Okay, so let's take advantage of this life that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with, okay, from the very moment, Allah subhanho wa Taala, from the very moment Allah subhanaw taala created our soul, our soul was meant to exist eternally. Now, the life that you have on this earth, that the life that you have here will dictate ultimately, where, where your soul will be, whether it's going to be in an eternal gender, eternally in gender, or whether it's going to be eternally in the hellfire. So whether it's going to be
eternally enjoying the delights of the Hereafter, in general, in bliss, or in tournament in the hellfire. So we need to work harder to take advantage of this hustle that we are living in this asset, this period is time. Okay. And, and always any, assess our assist our actions, assist ourselves, how much did I do? How can I improve? Okay, so now, for example, we are in the early days of Ramadan, we need to have a plan. Okay, what am I doing about feeding the poor? What am I doing about?
You know, feeding fasting people? Okay, what am I doing about reciting the Quran? What about the night prayers? What about what's my plan for Laila to Qatar? Okay, what's my plan for the last 10 days of Ramadan?
This is what we want to be doing planning is very, very important. I think that's where a lot of us get it wrong is there's no plan, you know, the more you train yourself, the more you plan, the more you think forward, the more you're going to have a more positive outcome. I mean, you know, like, look at athletes, for example, athletes, they train, they train physically, right? So athletes are training, okay? And why? Because they want when they get to the competition, they want to do well, they want to excel, they want to be a winner, they don't want to be a loser. Right? So therefore, we need to be training ourselves and preparing ourselves before the time comes, not just when the time
comes. That's it we got now we're going to now do everything that we can.
So make sure that we have a plan, make sure you have the intention, make sure you have a plan, and then make sure you execute that plan that you commit to that plan. Okay? And, you know, today, do things today, do things today, think about Now think about yourself in the future, think about yourself in the future. Looking back at today, right? Now, what we need to be doing is we could be doing things today, whereby yourself in the future will be saying, saying thank you, we'll be saying jack alohomora. Thank you. Look what you did, I am where I am today, this is in the future, because of what you did yesterday, because of what you did a long time ago. Let's think sometimes we'll lay
sometimes, we need to put ourselves in the future, see ourselves looking back at now. And if you can do that, then you're going to now work harder because you can see yourself in the future looking back at today. So it's very, very important that we
commit, and we think long term and not just short term. That's the problem. Many of us are just thinking about the short term. Okay, and you've heard me say this before No pain, no gain, in order to avoid in order to avoid big pain, long term pain, punishment, regret, okay, you have to go through some, some short term pain. In order you have to go through some short term pain, no pain, no gain, or as one saying says, you know, the,
the weight, that the the that the weight of discipline, the weight of discipline weighs ounces, or weighs grams in comparison to the weight of regret, that will weigh tons. Think about the regret later on. When it's too late to regret, as the Arabic proverb says, You're laying Pharaoh and Adam, the day when regret will be of no avail. What's the regret?
To get you, where is that regret going to get you it's not going to get you anywhere. House, it's done deal it's finished. Once you die, it will be ultimately eternal hell or eternal agenda. So let's not wait until it's too late inshallah Tada. Let's enjoy and Let's work hard. Okay, let's keep on working towards this beautiful cause of Islam. So Allah subhanaw taala says one last, when he says what, in the next verse in incense in there is indeed for sure insane is an insane is mankind. It's me, it's you. Okay, in the insane
in law in Santa Luffy hustle. Hustle means loss. He said, Indeed, that mankind or that man is in loss and destruction.
That man is in loss that you're not successful, which is the opposite of success is loss in in Santa Luffy hosa is in loss is in destruction. That means if a person is in loss, and a person is in destruction, where is he headed towards gender or towards Johanna
towards Jana, towards the end, and what that is the ultimate loss, that is the ultimate loss, the ultimate loss is not losing out a few dollars or you've lost a child or you've lost your parents or you've lost a loved one, the ultimate loss is that you lose your deen you lose your identity as a Muslim and you end up in the hellfire. That is he cannot get worse than that as a loss. So in the in-center left, he
left the hosel.
And then Allah subhanaw taala he makes an exception and hamdulillah he makes an exception. If Allah left that at that, then what's the point? What's the point of worshipping Allah? If he's saying that's it, you're in, you're in lust, because once he has said it, he said, you're in lust. But now he uses the word Illa Illa means except, except Illa. Who are they? Now Allah subhanaw taala is going to now enumerate or list for us the characteristics of those who are not losers, of those who will be successful of those who are on going to be on their way to gender Elon levina. What does it begin with? Elon Lavina, except for those are Latina, those in LA Latina, M and M and those who have
a man, those who have the correct belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala that believe in Allah Subhana Allah in the manner that he wants us to believe in him, not the way I choose to believe in Allah subhana wa Taala and that's what Islam stands for. Islam stands for what it stands for submission and surrender and obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala I submit my will to the will of Allah subhanaw taala so what does it mean to have the true belief? What is the belief that Allah subhana wa Taala wants us to believe in Allah subhana wa Allah wants us to believe, first and foremost for our land, and the hula Illa Illa Allah, know for sure, without a doubt, have very limb. You can't
just blindly follow somebody in the area of art either or belief for them and hula Illa Illa Allah, that there is no deity and no god that is worthy of worship, but Allah subhanho wa Taala phylum element, Yaki uncertainty, phylum. So, the first and foremost belief is the belief in the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala in the tohave of Allah subhanho wa Taala which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called to an invited to for 13 years in Mecca 13 years old is focusing on his to him his monotheism and focusing on its antithesis, the opposite which is what which is shift, a shift Kabbalah Okay, the first Yanni we find the first instruction in the Quran is is to worship Allah
subhanho wa Taala and the first the first instruction to keep away from is we find that circular bacara we find that is to keep away from shirk is to keep away from Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, you Hallelujah and Bakun and let the halaqa come como La Nina Comic Con
la la contactar con Allah subhana wa Taala he says,
He said worship your Lord, the first instruction of of actually doing something in sutra Baqarah we find the is, is we find that worship, worship worship Allah subhanaw taala Allah don't ascribe any partners to him. Okay, and then in the following verse, or shortly after it says when touch, delay and dead and do not ascribe partners do not ascribe partners to Allah subhanaw taala So, the correct belief in Latina Amman is to believe in Allah subhanaw taala Yes, we as Muslims know that we have the six tenets of belief, what are they and even will be led to believe in Allah subhanaw taala woman equity we believe in the angels of Allah subhanaw taala
But they're not the daughters of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah, Allah aka the angels, okay? The greatest of them is jabril. They made up they are made of light. Okay, and he meant to be led woman Lickety wakatobi he and his scriptures, yes, as Muslims. We believe in the Psalms that were sent to Prophet David, we believe in the Torah, in the Torah that was sent to Prophet musala. His selling, we believe in the Injeel, or the Bible that was sent to Prophet sallallahu sallam, we believe that the Quran is the seal of the Scriptures is the seal of Allah subhanaw taala is messengers that was sent to him that was sent the Prophet Muhammad SAW Santa, but it is a message to
all of mankind, a message to all of mankind, okay, to the ends and to the jinn to the incident to the gym, to the human being and to the gym that we cannot see. So, and the amount of be left on Malaika t wakatobi was when he was sorry, he in his prophets and messengers is to call and has listed 20 the names of 25 prophets and messengers in the Quran, but there are others and also tells us that there were others, but we only know the name of some 25 prophets and messengers that were mentioned in the Quran. So, an email will be left on Malaika t wakatobi. William and we believe in the Day of Judgment, we believe in a day that will stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala a day that
will be at least 50,000 years long, a very long day. And that some people will be in the shade of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that we also believe in heaven and hell afterwards we believe in the spirit. Okay, the
the path that will that is underneath it is the Hellfire, that the people that the believers will only cross and the belief in the sixth tenet of belief is to believe in Qatar will Qatar that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala he knows, he knows what has happened, he knows what is happening. He knows what will happen and how it will take place. Okay, this is the belief that we're talking about here. This is the belief that Allah subhanaw taala is talking about lol Athena and Manu. So you have to have the correct belief. Yeah, for all for any act of worship to be accepted. You know, if you want your cm to be accepted, you're fasting to be accepted. Just select to be
accepted, use a card to be accepted, you have to be accepted. You need to have the correct belief. If you don't have the correct belief in Allah subhana wa Taala in his in his Ulu here, that he is the one that only deserves to be worshipped in his in his rubia that he is the one that is capable to do anything and He is the Creator, and he is the Sustainer and he is the provider and he is a pilot and he is the Kareena. So this is the lobby and we believe in the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala team belongs the Most Beautiful Names and the most beautiful attributes, let him smell his name. So we know that Allah subhanaw taala he has the most
beautiful names and the most beautiful attributes that are befitting to His Majesty. That are befitting to Allah subhanho wa Taala as matches. So, this is the belief that every Muslim is required to believe in lll Athena M. And now Allah subhanaw taala. What does he What does he say next? Well, I mean, Lu La La Vina Amano, WA Mousavi hat and those who do handle silent, righteous deeds. Where does the righteous Where do righteous deeds commence? They begin with you follow it, they begin with your obligatory duties. Okay, so yes, we have a duty to pray five times a day. We have a duty to perform the too fast the month of Ramadan to perform Hajj as soon as we have the
physical and financial ability to do so. And to not procrastinate in performing the hajj, we have a duty
you know, we have a duty to give our zakat. Okay. So, we have for our for our eight we have obligatory duties, we must always take those duties and those obligations very seriously because they are the most beloved deeds to Allah subhanaw taala not the sooner the sooner that comes next, the sooner the sooner the actions of the prophet SAW Selim the way of the prophets are selling the traditional processes, they are to come after the follow it okay because in the Hadith could say Allah subhanaw taala says that there is nothing more beloved to me than that which I have obligated on my slaves. So we need to take heed a note of that inshallah hotel lol Athena Amano. Why mellow, a
solid hat? Well, I'm so sorry. I had no we don't have a Sonic. We're doing righteous days good days, you always begin as well. With priorities. You always begin with the most important followed by the important because everything is important in Islam. So we always begin with the most important and then we work our way down with the other important issues in Sharla hutan. So, we start with the first with again, go on to the Sunnah and then we go into the noetherian. Now, the optional duties, the optional optional things, the extras, okay, the overtime that we want to perform. So then Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, I may do well, I'm a little salty hottie. Okay, so the first trait was
Amen. The second one is
Following up your email is your actions because your actions is is an indicator of your email. Because had you imagine not being strong, then you won't find yourself performing these actions and that's why it's very important to have a very strong foundation when it comes to your email and when it comes to tauheed when it comes to knowing Allah subhanaw taala The more that you know Allah, the more that you exalt Allah extol Allah Subhana Allah, and Allah has a big
a part of your heart, then that's when you're going to that's going to be that which triggers you that which will actually direct you and inspire you to be doing more to be doing all of these animals sobre la Latina M and I'm in a slightly hottie, what a while so bear with us all been hacked, and those who,
who enjoined or recommend what tawassul behalf or recommend the truth.
we're talking about those who propagate the truth. Okay, part of those people who are successful and who will go to gender are those people who are calling towards the truth calling now to the correct belief calling towards the righteous deeds. Now the righteous deeds are that which is found in the Quran and the Sunnah.
This we have to remember Allah Armando Salah in Islam, righteous deeds in Islam. They are derived from the Quran and from the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim. These are the two primary sources of Islam for an answer in the Quran and soon we must remember this, we must remember that it's always this is the foundation of where we get all of our knowledge inshallah hotel, from the Quran and from the Sunnah from the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What our soul will happy, okay, and then Allah Subhana Allah says, What are well, so this summer, and those who recommend one another and advise one another to be patient? Because now, when it comes to when it comes to our
belief when it comes to our righteous deeds, and recommending others, towards the truth, it needs patience, because there's going to be a lot of people, a lot of people who will who will stand before you, you're going to hear much abuse as Allah subhanho wa Taala. He he mentioned to us in the Quran, in chapter three of the Quran. We find this with a hammer and I think it's 186 verse 186, Allah subhanaw taala says, when a test smell nemen and levina or to Kitab amin Kabbalah come
with a small nominal, Medina, O'Toole, kita, woman and Latinas Raku as an kathira. He said, You will hear you will hear from those who were given the Scripture, the people of the book and those who commit Schick, those who commit ship, you will hear a great deal of abuse. Okay, so Allah subhanaw taala has already foretold 14 over 1400 years ago that we will be that we will be hearing things about Islam, about attacking Islam, attacking the prophet SAW Selim attacking the Quran attacking Muslims, okay, but Allah subhanaw taala wants us to maintain our patience, okay to maintain our patients our sub. So here, he's reminding us with the worst of the worst of the suburb with the
worst of the suburb and we know that suffer when it comes to Patience, patience is required when it comes to what when it comes when it comes to three things number one, when it comes to our obligations when it comes to our a bad debt. So when it comes to our salad, I will see our hedge our hijab and requires you to be patient, number one, number two, when it comes to heroin, you know, being patient from committing the heroin, from stealing from lying, from gossiping from backbiting, you know, from dealing with Riba, all of these things, this patience, okay, so patience with regards to our acts of worship, patience with regards to that which is hard on patience when it comes to our
misfortunes when it comes to our calamities. Okay? We need to be patient, that it's not going to happen overnight, that Allah subhanaw taala is not going to,
in a lot of cases not bring about the Farage or the outcome or the success or the results overnight. And even in the Hadith that we find the Sahara Bihari Khalid Abdullah Habib,
he said that the Sahaba that complained to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day. While he was he was using his cloak as a pillow. He was using his cloak as a pillow in the shade of the cabin, the sahab that came to the process enemies now imagine this, the process lm is, is reclining and the Sahaba sisters say to the prophet SAW Selim, why don't you ask Allah subhanaw taala
for victory, why don't you ask for victory to make us victories? You know, why don't you not make supplication for us and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says among those before you there was a man who was caught.
And he was put in a hole in the ground that was that for him. And then they brought a soul. They brought a soul.
And they put it to his head and he was he was sewn, or he was sold in half. He was sold in half.
Then he was raked with metal teeth through his flesh, and burns. And none of that turned him from his religion. None of that turned him away. He was steadfast he was firm.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Allah will complete this business in other words will complete this this Deen this Deen will become victorious. And we will. Yani, we will over, overpower or dominate our enemies. And he said, Allah will complete this business so that a rider will be able to travel from sunup to hadramaut fearing none but Allah and wolves against his sheep. But you want to make things happen too quickly. Well, our kin acoem comun. testa jiun. Your people, you are hasty. You want things to happen straightaway. It takes time. It takes time for change. The prophet SAW, Selim was 13 years in Makkah, we just said earlier, you know, 13 years in
Mecca just call him to talk it.
