praises due to Allah had made 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 who follow his Sunnah until the last day, my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:28--> 00:01:15

Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Today brothers and sisters inshallah to Allah I want to share with you a very important lecture a very important talk about trials and tribulations. As you know, in life we go through many different types of tests, trials, challenges, we go through distress, we go through anxiety, we go through depression, we go through grief, we go through misfortunes, okay, of many varying types. So what is the Islamic stance What does the last panel with Allah said about this? What does the what is in the Quran what is what did the prophet SAW along while he was selling Mohammed Salah, say in the swinger now I'm going to begin with a verse from suits and molk Sora.

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

Tillman

00:01:17--> 00:01:30

okay which is the the opening of the 29th juicer of the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada says, Tibet, I can lead the big hill monokuma hawala coalition party.

00:01:31--> 00:01:38

The hora Cali Mota while hyah Taliban overcome a San Juan Allah.

00:01:41--> 00:02:17

Allah subhanaw taala says, bless it be He who has the kingdom in his hand tubercular the bat Hill wahoo Allah Konishi in Kadir, Allah azza wa jal has power over all things. Allah, Allah has power over all things. Alessi heraclea Mota will hire the one who created death and life alota will hire Leah blue welcome This is the word that we want here. This is the operative word for this lecture. Leah blue Welcome to test Leah blue or come to test au comm

00:02:18--> 00:03:15

to test which of you is best in actions elsewhere. Allah subhanahu wa taala says in the 29th chapter of the Quran opening verses Allah Subhana Allah says and if lamb mean has he been so in utero aku aku Amana wa whom la you stone Wanaka fatahna la Vina mean cabela him fella Allah man Allahu la Vina sada poo while ii laminal Kathy been Alif Lam him this is you know, this macabre it is some chapters in Nepal and they begin with yes in Alif Lam Meem calf Haryana einsatz, etc cough noon, Allahu Allah as to the meaning of these letters. Okay, Allahu Alem. The scholars homosassa them didn't give us any interpretation of these letters now. Then the surah says, Allah says, the people think the

00:03:15--> 00:03:31

people think that they will be left alone, because they say we believe. Do you think that just because you say amen. I am a movement. I am a believer. Do you think that that's it? You're not going to be tested? You're not going to be trialed, okay?

00:03:33--> 00:03:57

That you will not be tested. Allah smart Allah says, we indeed tested those who were before them, before them. And he says, And Allah will say, we'll certainly make it known the truth of those who are true, and will certainly make it known the falsehood of those who are liars. So with these tests that allows a panel to Allah

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

tests us with

00:04:01--> 00:04:54

a person knows whether he's true in his image, it will know who are the true ones, who are the ones who will continue with their belief, who are the ones who are going to deviate, just because they've been now struck with a calamity. And we actually find this. We find this in the end and the loss of our data in certain hedge sort of heads. The 11th verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says wamena Nessie may Abu Lucha Allah have that there are some people they they worship a love right on the edge, right on the edge and a half for in a Saba who hiren Atma. And maybe if good befalls him, whenever something good happens to him, he is happy with it. It's my baby. We're in a saw but who fitnah tune

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

in Allah Allah watching hee hee hasira dunya will f0

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

Listen to this, but if a trial befalls him this person who worships a lot on the edge, if a trial befalls him, he reverts to his former ways, he goes back to his to his bad ways. And what happens consequently, Allah subhanho wa Taala says hasura dunia will, he loses both the dunya and the after the, in the here in the here and the hereafter the life after he loses both worlds. So, this is something that we need to make a note of inshallah, who to Ireland, now my brothers and sisters in Islam, we must understand, and we must remember

00:05:39--> 00:06:22

that life is filled with trials with challenges with hardships. Okay, now what the Arabic word for these is empty, let it Tila, okay. And some of these trials can be very, very difficult, and some not so difficult. I'll give you some examples of the trials that I'm talking about. So for example, you might have you might be Allah subhanaw taala might give you a child bless you with a child, but that child is ill, or that child is a very naughty child, or that child is very challenging, that child has a deficiency in one way or another or may be having some sort of, you know, problem.

00:06:24--> 00:07:04

So again, it could be a child, it could be a difficult spouse, you could have a difficult wife, you could have a difficult husband, okay, you could have a sickness, his sickness may be temporary, this sickness may be chronic, if you've got all the time, this sickness may be terminal. Some people like cancer, this is a trial. Sometimes we have people are poor, you know, poverty, or, for example, you lose a loved one, somebody that's dear to you could be a family member could be a relative, you know, could be a friend, they die. This is a trial. This is something which is very, very difficult to deal with.

00:07:05--> 00:07:49

It could be a divorce, you could be going through a very bad breakup and marital breakdown, marriage breakdown, a divorce, it could be that you lose your job. It could be that you lose a prized possession, something that's really dear to you lose it. It could be that imprisonment, you could be wrongfully imprisoned. So as you can hear the challenges in life are many you don't know where they're going to come from. But we're going to see also that trials are not only in the in the are not only in the form of losses, but even your gains, and even your health and even your wealth and even all the beautiful things that you do have they in them in and of themselves could be a trial,

00:07:49--> 00:08:32

allopathic could be testing you with them. So we are facing many, many types of trials. And Allah subhanahu wa tyla again, is telling us it's a test this this world this world that we live in brothers and sisters in Islam, it's really just we're just passing but we're just it's a transitory life. We are in this life only for a short period of time and you know the process enemies said between 60 and 70 most you know of my alma will live in and some will pass or surpass the age of 70. So we need to always remember this that really young especially when you're getting close to that age when you're getting close to 60 you know really, really start need to get your act together. The

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

older the older that you that you are getting a lot of how Tyler says in

00:08:39--> 00:09:13

the Zener tele her Lena Bella whom a San Juan Allah inserted into this beautiful solar that we are supposed to read every Juma Suna to read every Juma so to have Okay, a lot of power data says that we made everything on earth adornment for it, Allah has adorn this earth, right so that we could test them to see whose actions are best, whose actions are whose actions are best. So, Allah subhanahu wa taala as I said earlier, trials us

00:09:14--> 00:09:30

according to this area, him he adores things, he gives us things. So sometimes my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, you may have a blessing. You may have a near a blessing, but that blessing really is not a blessing.

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

Okay, it looks like a blessing. The outside of it, it's closed, okay? It's encapsulated with beauty and adornment. And it looks really nice to you and appealing to you and it looks very positive. But in actual fact, it's a blessing in disguise. Okay, so it's actually not good for you. So you might have all of this wealth, but guess what, yes, you're rich. You've got money. hamdulillah but guess what you

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

That you have this money, it's leading you astray. It's making you buy haram things, invest in haram ways, you spending all of your time you are not, you are not praying you are not maybe doing the fuel duties, you're delaying Hajj because you're too busy. You're too worried about safekeeping and, and, and looking after your wealth, so is now your wealth of blessing. Now, it's not a blessing anymore. It's actually a trial. And it's a test. Likewise. So therefore, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, some people, it benefits them to be wealthy, being wealthy might keep them in Sharla keep them on the straight path. Some people it benefits them to be poor. Because if they were

00:10:45--> 00:11:01

rich, they'll be misguided. Some people if it benefits them, it is is better for them to be sick. If they were in good health, they would not remember Allah and some people vice versa. Some people if they are in good health, okay, they may

00:11:03--> 00:11:13

as I was saying vice versa if they if they are sick, it might be better for them if they are good in good health, that might be better for them. So we don't know how the trials come and where they come from.

00:11:14--> 00:11:16

Allah subhanaw taala says

00:11:17--> 00:11:30

whenever lucam bisher evil hiree fitna that we test you with both evil and good as a trial. So both are trials from Allah subhanahu wa taala.

00:11:35--> 00:12:15

I want to move on inshallah hota Allah and talk about some of the trials and the tribulations, the empty lair of the people of the past, of the people of the past. And I would like to share with you I know how much we love stories. I want to share with you a story from amongst the stories of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. Okay, once upon a time, I know you like that phrase, once upon a time we all like that phrase, okay, because it reminds us about you know, young child, you know, childhood, jeez, you know, once upon a time and the prophet SAW Selim really is doing that. He's telling us about the people of the past. He tells us all the time, and there's many stories

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

inshallah Tyler will share many of their stories in the future with you. But

00:12:19--> 00:12:50

the story that I want to share with you is a story about a leper. Okay, and a bold man, and a blind man. This is a true story that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrated to us, and its origins are in Bukhari and Muslim in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. Now here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he's narrating to us from amongst the battle is thrown in from amongst the children of Israel, Israel in

00:12:51--> 00:13:41

Aleppo. Now who is Aleppo, Aleppo is a person who has a skin disease, he has a very bad case, a severe case of skin disease. So Allah Subhana, WA, ala, he sends this leper an angel, a melech, he sends him an angel. And he says to him, you know, what is it that, you know, what thing do you like most, he said, I want to have a good color. I want to I would love to have good skin because the people have a strong aversion that people they have a strong aversion to me they want to always, you know, keep away from me. So the angel touched him. The angel touched him and he was cured. And he was given good color and he was given good skin. Okay, and as a bonus, the angel said, what type of

00:13:41--> 00:14:22

wealth would you like? What type of wealth would you like? And he said, he said, I would like to have some camels. I would like to have some capital Sam so he gave him a she camel, because that way she she can give birth to other camels. She gave him a she camel and and he said May Allah subhana wa tada Allah, may Allah bless this camel for you. May Allah bless him to add to bless the camel. Then the angel came to the bold headed men. And he said what thing would you like the most, he said, I would like to, you know, have some hair and be cured of this. I would like to have this that people feel you know, people look at me in a strange way. You have this repulsion to me. So the

00:14:22--> 00:14:34

angel and he touched his he touched him and he was cured. And he and he was given good hair. And he said, what type of wealth would you like? He said, I would like to have

00:14:35--> 00:14:49

some cows. So he gave him a pregnant cow. He gave him a pregnant camel. The first one this one is giving him a pregnant cow. And he said May Allah bless it for you. Then he comes to who who we up to now the blind man and the blind man

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

asked the same thing. What thing would you like he said I would like for my eyesight, you know, for my eyesight to be restored. So that I may see the people

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

So that I may see the people. So

00:15:04--> 00:15:14

then he said, okay, he touched his eyesight and he gave him back his eyesight at what? What wealth Would you like to I would like to have sheep. So then he gave him a pregnant sheep.

00:15:15--> 00:16:05

And afterwards, all the three pregnant animals I gave birth to the young ones, and to each one of these people, okay, they had a valley of these animals, each one one of them had a herd of camels, one had a herd of cows, the other one had a flock of sheep. Okay, so much wolf. Then the test time came about. Now the test is coming from Allah subhanaw taala, it gives you this is like to see what are you going to do with this wealth? Okay, so then the angel, he came in, in a disguise, this time, he came disguised in the shape of a leper. He comes as a leper to to the one who used to be, he used to be a leper. And he said, Look, I'm a poor man. I'm a poor man, who has lost all of his means of

00:16:05--> 00:16:14

livelihood while I was on a journey, and no one's going to be able to satisfy my need, except Allah, and then you put my dependence on Allah, but I'm also coming to you for some help.

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

And in the name, he said, in the name of him, the name of Allah, who has given you such nice color and beautiful skin, and beautiful skin and so much property, I asked you to give me a camel. I asked you to give me a camel, so that I may reach my destination. So what did this x lepa? He said, he said, I have many obligations. I have many obligations, I can't give you one. And the angel said to that, he said, Hold on.

00:16:47--> 00:17:24

Were you not a leper from before three, you used to be also a leper, and the people had a strong aversion to Weren't you a poor man, and Allah gave you all of this? He goes, No, no, no, no, that's not me. You've got it wrong. I'm not I'm not that person. I got this property through my forefathers, I inherited all of this. So this is what happens. Many people, they, they don't acknowledge the number that Allah azza wa jal is giving them. He said, he said, No, no, no. And he said, Then the angel said, if you are telling a lie, then then let Allah make you as you were before, and Subhanallah it's not like he was asking you for 20 or 30, or 40. camels, one camel, but

00:17:24--> 00:17:57

look at look at how mankind can be so greedy. Mankind is so greedy, okay? Then it comes in the shape of the angel comes in the shape and the disguise of a bold man. Okay, and he comes up to the x bolt, okay. And he says to him, the same thing that he said to the leper. And he says, and they both say exactly the same response, the story can shorten the story for you and get to the point. And then he says, if you are telling a lie, they let me then then let Allah make you as you were, as you were before.

00:17:58--> 00:18:45

And so Panama Luke, so Pamela, how when a sick person, listen to this, when a sick person, if somebody is sick, he is willing, he is willing, he or she is willing to spend all of their wealth for the sake of being better, right? Wouldn't you agree with me if you were if you had a serious illness, and it required all of you even if you had an A minor illness or something that's that's really bothering? Wouldn't you spend pretty much all of your wealth, okay, just to get better? You would, okay, but to come and spend 1% 1%, okay, of that wealth for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the problem. This is the disease in itself. And so the angel now comes into disguise

00:18:45--> 00:19:26

is coming to who now make sure you keeping up with the story to the blind man comes, he comes in the form of a blind man. And he says to him, I'm a poor man, I'm a traveler, I've lost all means, you know, I put my trust in Allah and then you and I asked you, I asked you by the one who has given you back, you're giving you your beautiful eyesight to give me a sheet that will help me so I can complete my journey and now listen to the response of the blind men, the blind man, he said, no doubt I was blind. He acknowledged that he used to be blind. He didn't. He didn't forget that. And a lot gave me back my eyesight, a lot getting back my eyesight, and I was poor. And Allah, Allah made

00:19:26--> 00:19:32

me rich. Allah made me rich because everything that you have with you that I have is from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:33--> 00:19:46

So take anything you wish from my property, anything you want, take it, but Allah will lie. He said well lie. I will not stop you from taking anything that you need from my property would you take fall off pantallas sick.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

Here, Jackie, and he had a Korean reliance on Allah subhanaw taala. This is something that a lot of us lack. We don't have your thing. We are too dependent on the system. We are too dependent on people we are too dependent on others. We need to depend on Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

apana with the island. That's where the prophet SAW Selim. At best, he said either.

00:20:05--> 00:20:25

When you ask you ask Allah what is the standard for Stein Villa? And when you seek help and aid you seek from Allah Subhana Allah, that's what we say in our solid no less than 17 times a day. Yeah Can I go do what he can a Stein? Stein means that we seek your help, we seek your you help your aid of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:20:27--> 00:21:10

So, so then the angel said to him, he said to him, keep your property with you. Keep your property with you. He said you. In other words, you three men, you have been tested, and Allah is pleased with you, and he's angry with your two companions. And the Hadith as I said, is found in Bukhari, and Muslim. So we need to always remember to thank Allah panel Dad, this is called sugar, sugar when you praise and we thank Allah for what he has given you. And very there is a reward for sugar. There is a recompense just for you saying thank you to Allah. Allah. Allah. Allah says, Why? As an Arab Buccola in Chicago Toma as Eden acoem.

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

And when your loads announced, if you are grateful, if you do sugar lezzy, then I'm going to give you more, the more you praise Allah azza wa jal, the more you thank Him and you acknowledge the favors that he has bestowed upon you, He will give you the ADA, he will give you what he will give you an increase, but it's up to me it's up to you to always say, and Hamdulillah, Praise be to Allah, Praise be to Allah, and hamdulillah This is from the the always from from amongst the words and the phrases, that the Muslims should always moisture in their tongues with Alhamdulillah. So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, everything in life, can, can can act either for you, or it can

00:21:58--> 00:22:39

act against you. Everything you think about anything in life, any concept anything could be for you, or it could be against you except for one thing. And that is Amen. Eman can never work against you. In an truth, faith, belief, the correct timing the correct belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala it can never work against you, it can always be working for you. But apart from that, we need to remember that any seemingly blessing can not actually be a blessing. And it actually can be something which works against you. Now, we have

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

when we look at the people of the past,

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

and we look at the prophets specifically,

00:22:49--> 00:23:15

we see that they were tested. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala he mentions the stories of the prophets and the poor and the stories of and parts of the stories of some 25 prophets and messengers as mentioned in the upper right. But why is Allah azzawajal mentioning these stories just so we can enjoy those stories, there are lessons to be deduced. There are morals that we need to take heed of, okay. And from amongst them, we have for example

00:23:16--> 00:24:17

Sulaiman Sulaiman profits will a man and his wealth was a form of Nirvana. When he saw the throne of Bill peace bill case the queen of Sabbath the Queen of Sheba brought before him. What did he say? He said, Carla, Heather, I mean fugly. Rob, be Carla Heather mean for therapy. He said, this is from the football. This is from the favor of the grace of my Lord. Listen to what he said next. Listen to his words. Very wise. Had min min fugly Rob be Leah lumini and Leah lumini Bella Tila, Leah blue and he is to test to test me that's the ieper Leah blue I need to test me. Ash Kuru amok for ash Kuru UK for Am I going to be grateful my god to say Alhamdulillah and thank you and acknowledge Allah azza

00:24:17--> 00:24:37

wa jal or am I going to commit coffered? Now Cooper here is in gratitude, confer here or I'm going to be ungrateful to Allah subhana wa Tada. Another on the other hand, we have the wealth. That's what Sulaiman said. But look, let's look at the comparison now of Sulaiman to qarun. You know of Cartoon Cartoon,

00:24:38--> 00:24:50

and his 250 followers, okay, are the ones who rose in rebellion against Moosa and heroine, Moses and Aaron Moosa and heroin.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

He had so much wealth, and he was given he was given so much treasures, that the key

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

alone. Okay, the keys to the treasure. The key to get to the treasure required nine men to hold a key.

00:25:10--> 00:25:17

Nine mentors to hold the key to the treasures, to can you imagine how much treasure they might he made? He must have had.

00:25:19--> 00:26:07

So the spot or despite all of this treasures that Allah has given him, he never acknowledged Allah azza wa jal never acknowledged Allah azza wa jal Actually, he did the opposite. He gloated. Okay, he gloated, and he said in number 82, who Allah Elmina nd he said that I had only been given it because of knowledge that I have all of this and other words, and he was being arrogant. He's saying, I got all of these words on my own merit because of my own skills because of my own knowledge. So Allah subhanaw taala destroyed him and destroyed in a were for herself snappy Wahby daddy Hill out a loss of power to Allah He made the earth open up and swallow him up in his treasures, and his home that

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

was swallowed up into the earth.

00:26:12--> 00:26:55

So this is the Annie, this is this is what happened to qarun. So we need to continue continually always express our gratitude. Now when we said I said before, he said hamdulillah but Is that enough? No. When I say gratitude, when we say expressing your thanks to Allah azza wa jal, it means you express your your thanks and you get your tongue by praising Allah remembering Allah really called and Vicar with your limbs. Huh solid Sokka Hajj Umrah This is expressing your gratitude with your heart. Sincerity Lawson, tawakoni, Athene and love of Allah and fear of Allah and hating all the things that Eliza gel hates. This is the ways that you think Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:26:58--> 00:27:04

Moving on also from a monster trials of the people of the past that the trials of people of the past we have

00:27:05--> 00:27:39

prophet new profit new highlight his selling, but before we come to profit new, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the authentic hadith in Bukhari, he said, I shall do Knesset Tila and an MBA from lm Farah for emphasis. He said, The people that receive the most severe trials and tribulations are the NBA as the prophets of Allah and then the light and the light. So the closer you follow in the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam and of the prophets of the past, because we are also required to follow

00:27:41--> 00:27:44

all the teachings of all the profits, except where there is of course,

00:27:46--> 00:27:59

a nessa where there is an abrogation through the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, okay? So the people that receive the most trials are the prophets then the life and the life. Okay, so this is what the prophet SAW Selim is saying,

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

and the best of creation, wood, wood, wood, wood, tried and tested, new Allah has stolen, he has done our he's dry, he's calling people to let ilaha illAllah was for 950 years. That's not some scholars said he actually lived longer than 150 years, but he's for sure he's dour was for 950 years for answers 1000 less 50. Okay.

00:28:24--> 00:28:53

And yet, how many followers did he have? He only had a handful of followers that it was enough to go on to an ark or a ship or a boat was it in 950. So there are going to be challenges in Doha in inviting people to Islam, Prophet au alayhis, salam, Prophet alayhi salam, as you know, he had an illness that lasted 18 years. And the people would be again, turning away from him and running away from him. Are you 18 years

00:28:54--> 00:29:38

used to follow his Salim Prophet Joseph, use of alayhis salam, he was how was he trial, he was traveled with the envy, the envy of his brothers towards him. He was thrown into a well, he was sold as a slave. He was he had so much beauty that a woman wanted to seduce him. In Morocco, as is the wife of Al Aziz. And on top of all of this, he spends eight years some ATMs in jail. Trial after trial after trial, he's an OB is a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala What about hurry to love the best friend of Allah subhanaw taala Ibrahim alayhis salam How was he trolled he was thrown into a fire. He had Yaki

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

Cooney, Burma Salam and Allah and Allah Allah says Cooney Burton wa salam O Allah Brahim, the fire ended up being cool and being peaceful on Ibrahim. Eunice la his sell and profit journey. How was he Trump he spent three days he spent so many nights, some three days it is said three days and three nights in the belly of, of a big fish of a whale.

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

And the Prophet musala. He said, Prophet Musa alayhis salaam with the children of Israel, you know that every type of evil present in this society they had to the extent that's why so many prophets were sent to benefit Israel in so many prophets and messengers was sent to the children of Israel. And then we have the trials and tribulations of the best men who ever walked on the face of this earth Prophet Mohammed sighs Allah.

00:30:27--> 00:30:49

We forget how quickly we forget about his trials. His trials, how did they start from beginning to end he was his life was filled with trials and tribulations. He grows up as well as an orphan doesn't get to have to see his dad, his mother. She dies when he's six years old. His grandfather dies a couple of years later, his uncle dies.

00:30:51--> 00:30:53

Look what's happened to the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:30:54--> 00:31:10

He loses, he loses. Also he loses Khadija his his beloved wife hadiza de la one hahaha. He loses his children, three sons, Abdullah, and outcasts, him and Ibrahim all of them by

00:31:12--> 00:31:15

rocks are thrown at him until he bleeds.

00:31:17--> 00:31:25

He's He's choked by the infidels by the kuffaar Rock by Eben white and to abubaker you know, comes and he rescues him.

00:31:26--> 00:31:33

The placenta of a camel is placed on his back while he's praying and then Fawlty modolo Anna, she removes the placenta of his back.

00:31:35--> 00:31:42

He has to migrate from his place of birth from nutcase in Mecca living there, he has to now leave mecca for 13 years to go to Medina.

00:31:43--> 00:31:53

He's traveled with envy, he's traveled with jealousies, called names he's called a madman is called a magician is called a poet is called all sorts of names.

00:31:54--> 00:32:12

And he was trapped even from the very beginning of the revelation. Remember ikara remember when the angel grabbed him and he was scared and he went to hadiza milanesa Milani. And then when he is dying, he is trial and he is going through immense, immense pain.

00:32:13--> 00:32:27

And he is saying in a lil mo Tila Sakura, that indeed death. This has its pangs this death has its hardships or its throws the throes of death are strong are hard.

00:32:28--> 00:32:58

So we need to remember these trials and tribulations of the people of the past, especially the trials and tribulations of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then there's also habit bln and earth man and Omar and hubub in Iraq, and the list goes on. So don't think that you are alone in your trial or in your tribulation or in your hardship or in your challenge. We are all challenged in one way or another. But the challenges are different. The challenges are different.

00:32:59--> 00:33:22

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, let's move on inshallah to Allah to the next part, and that is, why does Allah azza wa jal? Why does Allah trol us what is the Is there a wisdom is the wisdom behind these trials and tribulations and in Islam and hamdulillah Islam gives us gives us some of the reasons why Allah subhanaw taala has tested us

00:33:24--> 00:33:34

from amongst the the reasons that Allah Subhana which Island he tests us is to test our faith to test our Eman

00:33:35--> 00:33:47

as I read earlier, in the in the in the versus in circle anchor booth to test which of you is truthful and which of you are the ones who are non truthful

00:33:48--> 00:33:52

or has he been nasty and you track who I am and what

00:33:53--> 00:34:15

people think this could I say I believe that this is this is really when you say I believe this is when the test is going to come. You see when you embrace Islam and this is addressing you know, non Muslims or reverts or converts okay when as soon as they embrace Islam what happens sometimes their family stands against them they asked for they asked her to ostracize him, they turn against him.

00:34:17--> 00:34:27

So they they turn against their own. Only their own family members want to want to abandon them. So yes, it's a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:34:29--> 00:34:45

Also, from amongst the reasons is that Allah subhanaw taala tests us so we so we can For self assessment of our even For self assessment of our Eman to gauge to be able to work out where is our even

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

care how strong is our Amen. Amen is not a word that we simply verbalize. It's not something that we say I'm a movement. I'm a believer. That's not sufficient. I'll enter no matter what

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

chlorophyll a man is what enters and penetrates the heart permeates spreads in the heart. Okay, I'll email no matter what camera Phil Colby was at the Kahuna, Amman and he's proved by actions, your actions.

00:35:16--> 00:35:48

And we often hear many people soprano they say they're going through a hard time you send them are you praying they go well I'm going through a hard time. Now you will you should be praying if you're going through a hard time they left they abandon they turn back, it's what happens. They turn back on the dean, they turn back on, they turn their backs on those particular because they're going through a hard time they think that they think that they're going to be able to work it out by themselves. And once they've worked through that, then they'll get back on track well lay these people are fooling themselves because tofik and success only comes from Allah subhanahu

00:35:49--> 00:36:22

alphabay living as one of the great pious predecessors, he said, for as long as people are in a good state or are in good being they are hidden from the real Islamic characters. And if they are sent some sort of trouble and misfortune they real character can be saved, they will Muslim character can be seen. The believer will reveal his belief and the hypocrite will reveal his hypocrisy.

00:36:23--> 00:36:40

So you need to so we actually get these trials is a good gauge of where our Eman is. So when you go through a hardship, do you say hamdulillah? Are you patient? Are you the answers to Allah? Or do you turn your back on Allah subhanaw taala number three trials and afflictions from Allah serve as a wake up call

00:36:42--> 00:37:01

as a reminder, and it's as a wake up call and a reminder, they uncover the reality of this life. They remind you and I that this life is only the enjoyment of deception, the enjoyment of deception, as Allah, Allah says, material, the horror.

00:37:02--> 00:37:05

This is the reality of life, however,

00:37:06--> 00:37:32

have quickly we forget. And then comes, we think everything's going good. And then comes a trial from Allah subhanho wa Taala just to remind us to get back on track. So a lot of the calamities that we see whether it's tsunamis, whether it's earthquakes, whether it's floods, whether it's droughts. These are a wake up call to remind us to turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala as the other man has mentioned,

00:37:33--> 00:38:20

number four another another reason why Allah may put us through trials and tribulations the one of the wisdoms is Allah subhanaw taala target his Muslim servants with trials to cleanse them of the sins it's a it's a form of purification and detoxifying you have your sense, when you go through hardships when you go through a stress. And this is why in one Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim and his friend Timothy, he said, a Muslim male or female continues to remain under trial in respect of his life, in respect of his property, in respect of his offspring, till he or she faces Allah the Exalted in a state that he or she has no sin on their record. So purifies you in another Hadith, the

00:38:20--> 00:38:23

hadith of sad, sad huria della one

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

and also the one who,

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

in Buhari the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:38:34--> 00:38:51

He said, No fatigue, no fatigue, a no tiredness. And he said, no disease, no sorrow, no sadness, no hurt, no distress, that before a Muslim even even if it were the prick

00:38:52--> 00:39:05

he received from a phone you know, the phone that picks you very early, it can happen very quickly. Very something very minute, huh? But a lot expiate some of his sins for that.

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

That is enough. When you go through that stress, that hardship that challenge, know that Allah is rewarding you as long as you are patient. As long as you are patient, you have subject

00:39:18--> 00:39:22

and you don't act in a way that is showing Jani

00:39:23--> 00:39:26

an acceptance of this in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:39:27--> 00:39:59

So from amongst all also the the reasons that have been mentioned is that allopathic trials are a sign of Allah's love. They're a sign that Allah loves you. The prophet SAW Selim, he said in Buhari, he said whoever, whenever Allah wills good for a person, he subjects him to an adversity, it gives him a hardship. So this is something that we need to remember inshallah. So these bitter hardships that we face in our everyday lives, sometimes acting like medicine, actually medicine. Now you know, medicine

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

is medicine most medicines that don't have a good taste, and that people don't like to take medicine and you know, especially children, you know, you give them medicine, they want to just quickly spit it out. It's uncomfortable, it might actually have some side effects. Sometimes it might put you through some, some side effects just to make you better. And these are, these are the challenges like medicine. These are the trials and tribulations that we receive, that we don't necessarily like them, but they are there to reform us, they're there to purify us, they are there to detoxify us as I mentioned earlier.

00:40:33--> 00:40:37

So, Alyssa power dialer is sending us this to purify us of,

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

of our sins and

00:40:41--> 00:40:41

also,

00:40:42--> 00:41:23

what are some types of trials we are likely to encounter. This is the next part that I want to talk about is what are some types of trials that we are likely to encounter. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala in total Baqarah the second chapter of the Quran in verse 155, he says, whenever Luanda can be shy in mental health, be Shea in mineral healthy, while jewelry, Wanaka sin mineral and Wiley well unfussy was smart, listen to this. Allah azza wa jal is telling us in no uncertain terms, that and certainly,

00:41:24--> 00:41:28

we shall test you with a certain amount of fee

00:41:29--> 00:41:38

a certain amount of feet, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and crops. Now, let's analyze this area.

00:41:39--> 00:41:50

Allah subhanaw taala is saying that we are going to test you with regards to something or fee. In other words, not complete, not complete fee, however, aspects of the field.

00:41:52--> 00:42:10

And this is because if you live a life with complete Fie, this can be fatal and can be destructive. Imagine you will always very, very fearful, Allah, He puts you early he, he trials you with aspects of ill health, which is the fee.

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

Now

00:42:13--> 00:42:26

this could be here, the meaning of fee is the loss of peace and security. which is which, which is actually greater than hunger. And that's why he mentioned that before hunger, he mentioned that before hunger.

00:42:27--> 00:42:28

And this is

00:42:30--> 00:42:37

now we go on to the next one. And he says fi he has some aspects of fi and he says hunger, which is the next one.

00:42:38--> 00:42:58

Hunger, types of tribulations hunger. Now hunger here can have two meanings. Listen to this. Hunger can have two meanings. The first type is a sickness, whereby a person would eat an eight great portions, yet he still feels he's hungry.

00:42:59--> 00:43:00

That's a trial.

00:43:02--> 00:43:20

People may go through this. And actually as one of our scholarship, competitive Insider, hello Theremin him along to IRA he said, it actually happened in the history of Saudi Arabia one one year was in the period that people actually refer to this year as the year of hunger, or they would eat at Stanford 400.

00:43:21--> 00:43:22

This is what we have

00:43:24--> 00:43:49

people just eating, eating, just binge binge eating, you know, today, we have a problem with you know, obesity, and people being fat. Okay, over eating and hamdulillah. Again, Islam teaches us how to control this and how to prevent this, you know, the Hadith that you eat a third, you know, you fill your stomach with a third for food and a third for water or fluids and a third for for a

00:43:51--> 00:44:11

The second type of hunger is one, which is like a famine, with there's not enough food not enough. And because of poverty and what have I lost my family says loss of wealth, which is another trout. And loss of wealth could be at a community level which could be like a recession. Or it could be an individual level such as being poor.

00:44:12--> 00:44:54

loss of lives, loss of lives. In other words, death. Again, this could be this could be in such a way whereby a person dies here a person dies there on an individual level. Or it could be on a community level whereby people die. People die in large numbers. It could be a flood, it could be an earthquake, it could be a tsunami could be many different ways with large multi, a multi multiple so people die all at once. Okay, it could be a plague. It could be a plague. A disease might enter a house and affects all the family members and they all die. It's something that happened in the past as well.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

Now, also, when it comes to the loss of someone

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

It's very important that we understand what did the prophet SAW Selim? What is Islam? What is the Quran and Sunnah say about when you lose someone because inevitably, we are all going to lose a loved one.

00:45:12--> 00:45:26

So what, how? How can we what can we do to make sure to make sure that we remain? We remain sane, we remain firm. We remain steadfast, we didn't lose the plot.

00:45:27--> 00:46:02

Okay, the prophet SAW Selim, he said, for example, in his fan Buhari, he said, that Allah says, so it's a hadith Guzzi, Allah says, I have nothing to give but paradise as a reward to my believer slave to my believer slave, who if I cause he's the friend or relative to die, and he remains patient, and he hopes for a las pantallas reward. So if you your pet, your your family friend dies, your relative dies, and you remain patient. Allah blesses you with Jen.

00:46:04--> 00:46:22

And yet another Hadith Hadith which is found a Muslim I met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also informs us there are lost history's angels, after the takeaway the life of the child of his servant, he says, You have taken away the delight of his heart.

00:46:23--> 00:47:05

And so the angels say, Yes. Then Allah says, What did my servants say? What did my abs What did my servants say? And so the so the angels reply, he continued to praise you. He continued to say Alhamdulillah Allah then says to His angels, build for my servant, a house in general, and call it the house of praise. Special house for this person, a loss of power dynamic, the brothers and sisters in them control you in many different ways. He control you with sickness and illness. Like I said earlier, it could be temporary. It could be chronic, could be terminal could be that's it.

00:47:06--> 00:47:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:47:09--> 00:47:37

Control a trauma person with imprisonment as as happened to us and many of our great scholars of the past. Allah control you with your very children on the last panel Tyler says in an unwelcome way to come. There indeed your wealth and your your children, fitna are a trial. They are a trial. Allah subhanaw taala control you in your in the community that you live in.

00:47:38--> 00:47:54

Your Community might be a difficult community to deal with. Right? But Allah wants you to be patient with them and not to go away from your Muslim community. He wants you to be patient. And in one Hadith, how do you find an urban magic and Timothy which is

00:47:56--> 00:48:09

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah movement will lead you harlot wellness, the movement the believer who intermingles or mixes with the people way US Bureau Allah

00:48:10--> 00:48:16

and his patient with regards to the offensive actions they either they harm

00:48:17--> 00:48:24

highroad mineral movement, let the lie you holliness that person is better than the believer who does not

00:48:26--> 00:48:31

mix with the people while I ask Allah as well as to Allah

00:48:32--> 00:48:41

and who is not patient regarding their over the hump. So, this is these are some of the ways that Allah subhanaw taala

00:48:43--> 00:49:18

challenge, any census trials and tribulations move on to the next point inshallah huhtala. What is the mother of reasons behind our misfortunes? What is the mother of reasons now, it could be purely as a test and a trial. But most of the in most cases, a lot of power data will trial us as a result of our sins and our shortcomings towards Allah subhana wa Island and neglecting the Quran, neglecting the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or engaging in bidda, engaging in heretical acts innovation

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

or being very preoccupied with each other's shortcomings and talking about others. This is all what leads to many different types of trials. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, he says in chapter 14, the set of the Quran verse 79, he says, one of saw, men say he attained from enough sick, that whatever of say, of evil that befalls you is from your, your own self. It's from your own self.

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

So this is something and elsewhere. Allah. Allah says verhaal fussa to fill bergerie well Buhari Dena Casa Bella

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

A Dinesh Li Vika whom Baba lady ami Lu La La homier Joan, that said that corruption has appeared in both the land and in the sea, because of what people's own hands because of our people's own hands have brought about so that they may taste some of what they have done so that hopefully they will turn back to that hopefully, they will turn back

00:50:28--> 00:50:57

one of the great scholars even Siri and Rahim Allah who to Allah He is known for, often interested in is known for interpreting, Dream Dream interpretation. He is what is it is a great scholar, and one of the tab you're in and he was given a trial from Allah subhanaw taala. He was trial balance panel to Allah. And he says, He said when he received this trial, he said, I have been waiting. I have been waiting for it for 40 years.

00:50:59--> 00:51:11

I've been waiting for for four years because I this is a sin that I know of a sin that I committed 40 years ago, and I was waiting for the time that Allah Allah was going to punish me as a result of that sin. Look at how they thought.

00:51:12--> 00:51:37

So the punishment may not be straight away. Because as the saying goes in the Lucha you mihaela Well, I mean, Allah delays, but there's not neglect. So this is something that we have to remember inshallah. So let's keep away from sins. sins are destructive in many, many ways. They destroy your memory. They, they they lead to poor memory. As

00:51:38--> 00:51:41

a member of chef, he says,

00:51:42--> 00:52:21

I complain to work here and work here is one of his teachers. He says Chicago to LA what key in su fv. For our shut me Ella kill murase wirkkala allambie analemma neuron one Ooh, La La tahu. IRC. He says I complained to a Kia about my poor memory. And he said no, he goes farlam and he goes know that lm is light is the light of Allah and the light of Allah is not given to a disobedient person. You want to be successful in your studies. You want to be successful memorizing and memorizing Hadith memorizing,

00:52:22--> 00:52:26

then we need to make sure we keep away from sins insha Allah hota Island

00:52:31--> 00:52:45

now we'll move on in shallow Thailand to the last part of this presentation inshallah hota Allah and that is what is the cure? What is the medicine? Okay, how does the ideal Muslim

00:52:47--> 00:52:50

deal with trials and tribulations?

00:52:51--> 00:53:00

So we begin shallow to Allah by saying that the remedy the cure is number one, to have the correct belief in the last panel.

00:53:02--> 00:53:05

The correct Arpita the correct Amen.

00:53:06--> 00:53:07

Especially in altaba.

00:53:09--> 00:53:14

as Muslims, we believe in Al Qaeda will cover divine destiny.

00:53:15--> 00:53:17

That is, Allah azza wa jal has decreed.

00:53:18--> 00:53:30

Whatever has to happen to us, it has been the creed 50,000 G's before the creation of the heavens and the earth, Allah wrote it down. Allah commanded for it to be written down

00:53:31--> 00:54:05

50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth, yes, me and you, we still need to play our role, we need still need to, to to do what is known as well. That is to take the actions to take to do what is required of us and then the results the outcome is up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is something that we need to remember, which remember that wealth is divided, sicknesses divided good health is divided. And everything in life is divided. Not everybody's good health, not everybody is poor, not everybody. is is is is you.

00:54:06--> 00:54:11

Switch Remember to accept the color and color of Allah subhana wa Taala.

00:54:12--> 00:54:19

And the more we can submit to the color and color of Allah subhanaw taala it makes things a lot more easier for us, we save hamdulillah

00:54:22--> 00:54:24

So, the next remedy is

00:54:26--> 00:54:59

to have patience, to have patience, and in his patients can be a bitter cup, a bitter drink, but we could be strong and we could take it like medicine, with to have suffered. And this is why suffer is mentioned in more than 90 places in the world. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said the hijab and the Umbrella Movement amazing is the state of a movement of a believer in Umrah who hula hula who hide that everything for a believer is higher and that's

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

And that is for none other than a believer.

00:55:04--> 00:55:22

If he is blessed with good he thanks Allah and he will be rewarded for his thanks. And if a misfortune befalls him, and he keeps patient, he will be rewarded for it. This is the case of a believer. Remember this hadith. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, one

00:55:24--> 00:55:33

that whoever remains patient, while men yet a subpar use of beautiful love, if you practice patience, you become patient.

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

So you have to take the action of being patient, while men get a subpar use of beautiful law. And then he goes on for asylum in his heart, Phantom Buhari, and he says that nobody can be given a blessing better and greater than patients. One of the best blessings to have is suffering. So you work on your patients in Sharla, who to Island.

00:55:57--> 00:56:40

And remember that patience is always required at first instance, at the first shock, the process lm said to that lady, who was grieving for her son at the grave in the process of empathy to be patient, and then she can she comes to his door not after having taught the process and to go and she didn't recognize him. She comes to his door, and she wants to apologize. And she says, Yeah, so I didn't recognize you. I didn't know that he was giving me this advice. He says to her in nimasa, bro, and the submittal oola. That patience is required at the first instance of the shock, okay, and we have many, many stories of patients of those who came before, and the reward and the compensation

00:56:40--> 00:56:43

of being patient, such as a Muslim, or Muslim.

00:56:45--> 00:56:52

One of the female companions, and this is a highly fashionable, highly Muslim, her husband was Abu talhah, Abu talha is

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

her husband, and

00:56:57--> 00:57:06

one of her children is ill, one of her children, is ill. And during the absence of an open heart, the child buys.

00:57:07--> 00:57:21

When he comes back inquiring about his son, she wasn't jumping up and down and hysterically. He asked about his son, and she said he is better than before. He's better than before.

00:57:23--> 00:57:30

Then, she placed the evening meal for him. And he ate. And they had marital relations.

00:57:31--> 00:57:40

There after she broke the news to him in a very novel manner, saying, arrange for the burial for the boy.

00:57:41--> 00:57:46

Just like that, and I will tell how he panela he was

00:57:48--> 00:58:07

very, he was a bit shocked at this. And he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the film said to him, will you together last night will you intimate with your wife last night, and he suggests the process lm said our law blessed a new baby for them. Bless the child that they will have.

00:58:09--> 00:58:22

And thereafter she gives a she has a boy she delivers a boy that boy grows up he gets married and he has nine sons, all of them who have memorized the Quran.

00:58:24--> 00:58:30

So look at how things can happen. Well, I said, Allah, Allah says, as an Takahashi,

00:58:32--> 00:58:55

you may dislike something, you may hate something, but it's good for you. And he says, as unto him Boucher and mahasarakham you may like something but it's actually sharp, it may be evil for you might not be good for you. This is why you have to accept what a lot of power dialer has, has ordained for you, has destined for you say hamdulillah.

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

So, some of our pious predecessors, they said if you are overcome by a misfortune and you are patient, then you only have one misfortune. However, if you encounter a misfortune, and you are not patient, then you have actually got two misfortunes, the loss of that which you love, and the loss of the reward, you could have gained for engineering patiently.

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

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he also said, the strong person is not the one who is able to wrestle his adversary to the ground like the wrestler. That's not the strong person, but the strong person is the one who is able to control his anger, to control himself in a time of of hardship. Number three, from amongst the the ways of dealing with trials and tribulations is remembering the reward that you will gain. Remember that you will gain the reward as I mentioned in the Hadith earlier, even if you have pricked

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

01:00:02--> 01:00:11

and remember also that your trial could have been worse. Imagine your trial especially for talking to Muslims. Imagine you are not a Muslim. That's worse.

01:00:12--> 01:00:41

preventative do I and then there is a curative or a protective

01:00:49--> 01:00:50

and remedial

01:00:51--> 01:01:17

Okay, and including in this too is from the trials of life and death, life and death. So this is

01:02:44--> 01:02:50

ensuring that you are asking us for data to protect you from even before these trials from happening. So this is what we mean by

01:02:51--> 01:03:01

prevention is better than the cure. Always try and prevent these things from happening. Then ask our sponsor to trial you. You know you don't ask us whether to put you through these hardships.

01:03:02--> 01:03:40

01:07:40--> 01:08:28

Also from amongst the medicine, looking at what Allah has given you as to what he has taken from you. Okay, so look at what Allah has given you, not what Allah has taken from. This is a very, very important and a very good way of dealing with your losses. Okay, one of the pious predecessors or odawara, urbanists obeyed.

01:09:08--> 01:09:36

Look at the positive. And he said Allah subhanahu wa taala. He said, he said, I used to have seven children. And Allah took away one is kept me with six.

It's letting allowing for your mind, okay to think about things and reflect and look at things from a different perspective.

He said, for this will enable you to appreciate the favors of Allah subhanaw taala don't always look at what he has got or she's got that's better, better health better money, better living standards. No. Look at those

To help don't have, you are better than many others, you have something that many others don't have. Okay, from amongst the ways of dealing with it dealing with your hardships is total dependence and reliance on Allah subhanaw taala and calling upon Allah subhanaw taala. Also from amongst the ways is to complicate the is to sorry to contemplate the worst case scenarios, and this is

01:10:24--> 01:10:27

a technique used by psychiatrists.

01:10:28--> 01:10:44

And the problem is that you can always look at how it could have been much, much worse, how things could have been much worse or worse, you know, this is a way of dealing with misfortunes and hardships. looking also at how to transform your trials into

01:10:45--> 01:10:48

your losses into gains and into profits. Okay.

01:10:49--> 01:11:21

It been Tamia for example, he was imprisoned unjustly only to come out and even more accomplished scholar. So his imprisonment was better for him. He became a more accomplished scholar and his works widespread today.

01:11:23--> 01:11:43

01:11:44--> 01:12:30

There was a lady she was afflicted with her shadow, she had a she had a injury on her finger. Okay, and she kept on praising Allah and going about in a very happy way. It wasn't she wasn't sad. And she she said, she said the sweetness of its reward, the sweetness of its reward, made me forget about the bitterness of its pain. So when you say again, when you think about the reward, the pain inshallah hota, Allah is lessened. If you're going through hardships tend to solid, turning for solid, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he was troubled by something, he would flee to the solid, he wouldn't flee to, you know, medicine and to the internet, or to have these things

Okay, ask them how maybe they can how to deal with how you can deal with your challenge and with your hardship. And for those who are also going through trials and tribulations, I want to recommend some books. One of the best books I've read and come across in dealing with hardships and distress and anxiety.
