Bismillah commanded Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was salam o NaVi Karim Ali Abdullah Salatu atoma tasleem rubbish. rocklea sodbury were Sidley Emery, Melissa Neff. gohar Kohli, my brothers and sisters in Islam as said Mr. alikum, warahmatu Allahi wa barakato
hamdulillah. That's nice. It seems like everyone's really excited and we're making phone calls or facing the back. What's going on guys?
Hey, I'm going to ask someone to or I think the lights in the back the sister site if we can get that open. So
that would maybe make people feel like they're not falling asleep. And also the partition is up for the sisters who want to come through.
You can come through if you want the the partition is is already up in place.
No, no one there Can one of you maybe just open the lights in the back? Just so brightens the place up a little bit. Okay, in sha Allah. Today, we have a very interesting topic because we're talking about test giftedness, we're talking about, you know, things that encourage us to be better and to do more things that are pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala tend to stay away from the bad things. We focused a lot on some of the diseases of the heart, who can remind us of some of the things that we learned in the past. Yes.
Showing off good Ria, ostentation very good, what else? And v? Okay, what else did we study?
That's it showing off an entity? What about loving this dunya right, just wanting things I want, I want I want, right wanting so many things, but never being satisfied with the things that we have, or just acquiring or purchasing or getting the things that we need, right not always having the things that we want, but having the things that we need. Alright, so those are some of the things that we covered in the past and hamdulillah. Today, we're going to learn something a little bit differently. We're going to learn a story.
So today we're gonna learn. We're gonna learn about patience, but we're not going to learn about patience, the typical way. We're going to learn about something more than patience. And we learn this through the story of Prophet, Allah, his sin. And we noticed the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was someone that had patience, right, someone that learned how or someone who knew how to be patient, but he taught us the element of patience in terms of perseverance in terms of constantly be patient, being patient with the struggles and the hardships of the things that we're going through in our personal life. Okay, so we're going to begin with a verse of the Quran.
And this is going to help for some of those that don't understand English. I know we have some brothers here and sisters that only speak Arabic. We're going to cover one of the verses of the Quran where Allah subhana wa Taala teaches us patience and perseverance, being steadfast in that and we'll see how sometimes in our personal life, there are things that we're challenged with things that we need to be very patient with. But somehow Allah we lose it as quickly as we can. And Allah subhana wa tada says in verse number 200, which is the last verse of surah, Allah and Ron, he says,
you will have a lady in a man who is biru. Warsaw biru warabi. To what law has come to flee.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you're Latina woman, or you believe, again, every time we hear these verses, we say Allah is catching our attention. He's trying to wake us up. It's like someone takes the mic and just it's it really hard, right? wakes us up, grabs our attention. Yeah, a young lady in ermine, who is biru. Now here, Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us to be patient with some of the things that we might be going through in life, have that patience, but hold on to that patience will solve it all. And to be very steadfast be punctual in that patience. Now, it's easier said than done because we always take verses of the Quran where Allah subhana wa tada for example,
says, Yeah, you have Latina woman who is there, you know, this Sabri was Salah.
Right? Allah Subhana Allah tells us to seek help, from what or through what? Patience and Sunnah. And it's easier said than done. Some people say, you know what I pray, but I don't feel patient when I pray. Or I'm not I'm not increasing in my patience when I'm praying. And then some people say, Well, how can I even get more patience? When the law says Be patient, I'm not even patient with Salah itself. Like it's time to wake up in the morning to pray.
don't have that patience for it. I just go back to sleep. I'm not saying me, but I'm just saying sometimes people say that right? And so some kind of luck. We find it very difficult to do that. But let's look at a story of one of the prophets case and it's an alum and higher Eonni mother hustler Isla Nabina you alayhis salam,
Casa to one mother for Allah see Baraka to sub Vietnam hyah to heat workiva de la Mora he a shaitan, at least one k for Canada and a la casa who bainer
and Bain Nabina YouTube webinar, Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we're going to learn how you have Allah has sent him, you know, he was approached by a police
and multiple different times, multiple different ways. And a UVA Allah has sent him just to give us a little bit of a context a little bit more understanding of his life. Are you behind He has sent him? Was he rich?
You don't know. Good? That's the best answer. That's an honest answer. I'm not saying is the best answer as in. You're absolutely right. But you're right, based on yourself. I don't know. Right. And so was a UVA has sent him someone who was rich. Does anyone know?
Yes, he was rich, give us examples of his wealth.
Right. So Obama has sent him he had lots and lots of lend. He was really rich in terms of having property. He was also rich in terms of having the lens that he possessed. And on that land, there was a lot of riches, as in a lot of agriculture, a lot of produce a lot of bounties and blessings that Allah Subhana Allah gave to him. He also had this huge house and it said that he had many houses as well, not just one property, but lots and lots of property. And you by alayhis, salaam, he was rich in other aspects as well. We focused on housing, we focused on property, we focused on food, but a Yoruba his Salaam had a huge family. He had many, many children, and the loss of Han
with Allah blessed him with that, and blessed him with health as well, for many, many years, he enjoyed amazing health. And for us, we might think to ourselves, you know, what, someone who's 50 years old is now taking cholesterol pills, and taking you know, pills for high blood pressure, especially in our Indian, Pakistani, you know,
you know, culture Subhanallah for many of us, we eat too many ladoos and jump jump and Barfi and some horses and biryani and all that stuff and swallow. You notice by the time someone reaches 5055 years old, guaranteed they must be on some kind of pill to look after the cholesterol or high blood pressure. Right? And you notice that immediately when you go outside and you find the kids playing around someone's car for example, right away, they snuck What are you doing wrong? My car's like, oh, chill, you know, some handle and that's because our, you know, types of foods that we eat doesn't really help us in our, our makeup and who we are. And so a UVA has sent him he had great
health. For many years, he enjoyed great health. In fact, for 80 years, he was extremely healthy. Now when we think of 80 years of health, how many of you know someone who's 82 years or sorry, 80 years old? Does anyone here know someone who's 80 years old?
shala he's not at Mashallah. He'll be just as healthy even healthier when he's at, right you know, someone who's at Raise your hand if you know someone who's 80 years old, roughly around 8090 years old, Subhan Allah, okay, from all the people that know someone who's 70 8090 years old, how many of them are extremely healthy, like you'll see them playing football or soccer, or they'll go out and play basketball, or they're going to put their skates on and go play ice hockey. We don't see that happening when people are 18 years old. They're sitting down, they're taking their time they're, you know, walking with a cane or a walker going very slowly someone is standing next to them, right
making sure that they don't slip and fall even though there's no ice on the carpet, right? They're just making sure that they're okay. Now a UVA has sent them for 80 years he lived with good health.
And before even reaching that stage of the 80 years old because I don't want you to think in your minds that now a UVA is at, we want to take it step by step. A you have had all these riches in life. He had so many things that Allah Subhana Allah blessed him with. And now he believes he goes to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he tells a law he says, you know, this worshipper of yours, this servant, this slave of yours up is referring to you of Allah, his Sunnah. He says he only worships you, because you've given him so much wealth.
And I guarantee that if you take this wealth away from
from him, he's not gonna worship you anymore.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala he knew you ballet, his center. He knew what type of person he was. He was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, he knew that if you buy alayhis salaam lost his wealth, he would still turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. So in order to not only test a Ube, Allah subhana wa tada wanted to teach at least a lesson that you don't know more than I know. And you can't be the one that tests my worshipers and my servants. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala He grants it lease, you know who it leases who here does not know who it leases? Okay, it leases shaitan you know who shaitan is? And he turns around, he's like, I don't want to hear about shape. Ah, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no, my dad told me not a bad guy.
Right? It leaves his shape on he's the leader of the devil. Okay, because at least himself, he has workers that work with him. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala, he tells us at least he tells shaman, okay, go and destroy all of the wealth of a human at his center.
And at least goes and he does that. He goes and he starts to destroy his crop, right? All his agriculture. He goes in, he destroys his home, he goes and he destroys everything that you've added his senem had in terms of his wealth, all of the gold and the silver and everything you had is gone, taken away from him. And the loss of hanway Tana sent a huge array his solemn a police, as in at least goes and approaches a yoga his center. And he approaches him in the form of a
What does he look like?
Who knows? Right?
Okay, a beggar which is in the form of a human being right? So he comes to him in the form of a human being
and details a you trying to play with him? He says, You see, look what Allah did to you. He gave you all these things. And now he took it away from you, you have nothing. You don't have a home, you don't have you know, agriculture, you don't have property. You don't have wealth, all your golden silver, everything is gone and taken away from you. Now what do we see? linking this to the verse of the Quran that we took Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, a un Latina amanu is biru was saw the rule. What are the two? When something happens to us? What do we do? We don't just run away. And we see this happening now in the United States, right? Today was a famous day. What day was it today?
What day was it?
No, it wasn't a was Friday. Friday is a blessed day.
Yeah, today was the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Right. Ronald McDonald? No, no, Donald Trump. Sorry, wrong guy. Alright, so have a look. And we see here that a lot of people, many people, especially people living down south, but also people around the world are confused, and they're scared. And they're wondering, how's things going to be like? How is our life going to be moving forward? Now that Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and some handle that for many Muslims, they're really worried and concerned for their own position, and it's understandable, especially those living in the United States. But at the same time, Allah subhana wa Tada, as we
learned a few weeks ago, or a couple months ago, right? We learned that Allah subhanho wa Taala only is the one who chooses, even though people vote and he was voted in, we learned that Allah subhana wa, tada ultimately is the one who decides, and he was the one who put Donald Trump in that position, for a reason. Now, today, many people are confused. Many people are saying, how is this happening? Why is this happening? How can it be that someone like that is now the president of the United States? What is life going to be like for us in the future? And you see many people talking about Canadian immigration, and how a lot of Americans want to come to Canada, right? A lot of
people minorities want to leave the country and go to different countries, and they're worried how life is going to be for them. And it's understandable. But at the same time, Allah subhana wa attallah tells us yeah, you have Latina women who are you who believe, hold on to that element of patience that you have, to the extent that it doesn't shake you
Why? He goes on to say
what up Allahu Allah, Allah come to
have Taqwa in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that you might be of those who win. Those who succeed those who are successful. Now are you behind He has sent him when it least comes to him and says, You know what, a lot took all of your wealth away. Look at that. How does he respond?
Does anyone know you got a Sam did? What did he tell the police?
He says Allah is the one who gives, and who takes. Sometimes he gives us wealth. Sometimes it gives you a new car, sometimes it gives you a new home, sometimes it gives you a nice job. And sometimes a lot takes that job away. And sometimes a lot takes that house away. And sometimes he takes, you know, even our nationality away. And sometimes he takes our home away. Sometimes he takes us away from our land as well. And SubhanAllah. That's a challenging time. That's difficult. It's not easy for people to face. It's not easy for us. Imagine if we were kicked out of our country. For those of us that are born here, a lot of the children are born here. Imagine if we were told you can't live
here anymore. You need to go back home. How many of you were born in Canada? Raise your hand if you were born here. Okay. You were born here?
Where does your dad come from?
Tunisia. Imagine if you're told you need to leave Canada in a month. And you have to go back and live in Tunisia. You're no longer Canadian. We take away your citizenship. Anyone here from Pakistan or their parents from Pakistan? Yeah, your parents are born in Pakistan. Are you born in Canada? Imagine if you were told in a month, you have to leave Canada, you can never come back. And you have to go live in Pakistan. Would you be happy? Why? Don't answer that. Right. Don't answer that. Let's imagine that. Many of us would feel no, no, we don't want to leave. And it's not because another country is better or worse than Canada. No, it's because this is our home. For those that were born
here. We feel like this is home. This is where we you know, we were born here we were raised here. It's all we know we speak the language. We you know, understand the clothing of the people, the education of the people, the food of the people we understand it makes sense to us. But a Yoruba Hana has Salam. He says Allah is the one who gives and he takes, sometimes he gives us things and sometimes he takes it away. And so if these failed at affecting the belief, and the trust and the taqwa the you have Allah has sent him had in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and then a YouTube, he made such that to Allah subhanho wa Taala. What is that such the known as?
Such that's a shocker. Exactly what is such that's a shocker. Does anyone know?
No, no, you answer that. Yeah.
Very good. It's a such that you make out of thanks. thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala. For what we have and for what we don't have. Now Uganda has sent me teaches us that we don't only make this such that when Allah gives us something. A lot of people they say, Oh, you know what, I got a new car today. Let me go make such a shocker. Let me thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. And someone just bows down, you know, goes down prostrates and makes such the thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala someone gets a new job. They make such that to Allah subhanho wa Taala someone gets engaged or gets married on hamdulillah. Finally, right? The race is over. I found someone getting married now and
hamdulillah they make such that, right, all that nonsense is over the marriage is over hamdulillah they make such a huge value. His m teaches us the importance of thanking Allah, even when things are taken away from us when something is taken away. So now let me ask you, have you ever gotten in trouble and your parents took something away from you?
Raise your hand if your parents took something away from you when you got in trouble sometime, even just once in your life? Right? It's happened to all of us, right? We just don't want to admit it. Because we're worried if we admit it, then our parents are gonna take something else away from us and be like, Oh, you're telling everyone that it took things away from you, I'm gonna take something else away. But it's happened to us all the time. How many times when we get in trouble for doing something that maybe we thought was right, but it was wrong. We got in trouble. Our parents take something away and it could even be our time. It could even be fun time. They tell you you're
grounded. That's taking away your freedom right? How many of us at that point in time will go and make such that to Allah subhana wa tada not many of us. Those of us that will make such though we're making such that into our like, yeah, love please Allah please make my parents Forgive me, right? Please make them Forgive me so that I can be you know, given freedom again, or they'll give me back my iPad or allow me to watch YouTube once again. And so Subhana Allah those are the only times that we make such a shocker to Allah subhanho wa Taala when we make such a law when we get something but a YouTube teaches us make such that even when we lose something, but then it goes on
a you've Allah has sent him even though he lost his wealth and he lost his home and he lost, you know, a lot of his property.
At least goes back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he
Tell us a lot. He says, you know,
he's still thankful to you. And he still continues to worship you. Because he still has his family.
Right? He still has his family, all of his children. So you know, when someone loses things, they're happy because they look at their children. And those of us that are parents, we know, we look at our children and whether our children are healthy or sick. Alhamdulillah, right. We have our children, we're thankful that we have our children. And so are you behind them, as at least is telling a lot. He says he's only continuing to worship you because he still has his family.
And so Allah Subhana, WA Tada, tells him at least Go, go, you can try. Take away the children take away the family of a Yoruba, Allah has center. And so if these goes and he kills all the children of a Yoruba, Allah has sent him and he had a huge family. Imagine how bad a person feels when they lose one child. It's difficult. It's not easy. We all know someone who's lost a child. It's extremely, extremely difficult on the parents, but a UVA has sent him he's still thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And at least again, approaches him and tries to play games with his mind tries to whisper to him. But Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that au Bala has sent him he's strong. He's patient, and
he's steadfast. He continues to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now at least is getting really, really upset now. Why is he getting upset? Because he's trying to prove that to you, but Allah has sent him. He's going to stop worshipping Allah when things are taken away from him. And so he goes back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he tells Allah He says, Your worshiper, this servant of yours, he's still worshiping you, because he has his health.
Think of it. What is the most valuable thing to us?
Now, there's many valuable things. Time is one of the most valuable things that we have. But a UVA his senem is now going to be tested with his health. How many of us when we're sick and we go to the hospital, we start to pray.
Many of us, right? We know people who are never ever, you know, known for praying, or they would never recite the Quran, or they would never make dua to Allah. But all of a sudden when they're sick, or they're admitted in the hospital, they start to make dua. How do I know I've done things so bad in my life, but y'all love Please grant me health, I will change myself. From now onwards, I'm going to start praying, I'm going to start fasting. I'm going to start reciting the Quran, Oh Allah Just give me health. And we see that sometimes Allah gives that person health.
And as soon as they receive this health, they don't pray. They don't fast. They don't recite the Quran. They don't memorize. They don't do anything good. They don't give sadaqa they don't care. Because life is back to normal.
But uh, you have Allah has sent him, he's tested now. Allah Subhana Allah to Hana removes the health, his body is affected. He starts to have all these problems with his body, his skin is you know, really, really, you know, I can't even describe it is very difficult to describe. Basically, he just gets infected everywhere. His body is filled with infections. And now a yoga honey has sent them you would think that he starts to give up, you would think that someone no longer is going to worship Allah and say, You know what, I had everything. I had a house, it's taken away. I had property was taken away. I had wealth. It's taken away. I had children, they're all dead. I had good
health, it's now gone. Who cares? I worship the love for so many years. A lot took it all away from me. Why? What was the point of worshiping Allah and many people will find themselves in that position. Whether they act upon it or not, they will think it Why is a lot doing this to me and you obey his system. He continues to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. He continues to worship a lot, because he knows that he's thankful for so many years of having good health.
And then we see
that at least he goes to the wife of IU. The only thing that a UVA has sent him had left. Even his friends abandoned him because he had you know, his his health was affected. And when someone is sick, do people like being around them? When someone comes to the mustard, like
every five seconds they're sneezing, right? And then they're coughing.
Not a regular cough like no, like a really bad cough. And when that person comes to the mustard is everyone going in singles that have already gone Mashallah, you're sick Alhamdulillah ALLAH is forgiving you of yourself.
Maybe Allah is going to forgive me my sins because I'm standing next to you. Do people do that? No, we don't do that we see someone secrecy chef, aka Allah, may Allah grant you health and we leave, right? We go stand away from them. They're standing over there. Maybe we prayed. There's some nun, they're standing right next to us. They came in, as soon as we finished praying, so now we get up and we walk and we go over there. Oh, I don't want to get sick, right? That's normal. That's natural. A person wants to defend themselves from any illnesses around them. But we have to remember a loss of Hannah Montana is the one who gives and who takes Allah gives health and he takes health.
And Allah gives the sickness and he takes the sickness away. And so are you but Allah has sent him because he was sick. All of his family, sorry, all of his friends because his family was dead except for his wife. All of his friends abandoned him.
Now you can imagine someone doesn't look good. Does anyone want to be their friend? Now we're not supposed to judge people. But naturally, you'll see that people will stay away from them. Right? And so you have Allah has sent him his wife is now approached by a police and he whispers to her as in he speaks to her and communicates to her and starts to trick her into thinking that she should not be thankful for what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given to you by Allah He said him for all those years. And she goes to a yoga his setup. And she says you you had health, you had wealth you had so many things in your life. And look, Allah subhanho wa Taala took everything away from you
know a you bought a Sanam he gets irritated, because his wife is questioning what Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed him with. And he asks her two simple questions. Who knows what this first question is?
Does anyone know? Do you know?
Very good. How many years has Allah subhanho? wa Taala given me good health?
Does anyone know the answer to that?
80 years, she says 80 years 80 years, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave her good health gave him good health. And then he asked her a second question. How many years have I been suffering and struggling and losing things in my life? What is the answer?
No. Anyone else?
Seven years? Seven years of difficulty? No think of it.
What? Seven years compared to eight years?
Nothing right? Nothing? How old are you?
11. An 11 year old knows that eight years compared to seven years is nothing. That's like why are you complaining? You had everything for seven years? Who cares that now for seven years? You've been suffering, right? But uh, you gotta you sent him. He's trying to teach this to his wife. But I've had everything for 18 years. And now only for seven years I've been struggling. Am I supposed to be someone who's ungrateful? Am I supposed to be someone who's not thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that even though he's taken everything away from a Yoruba Allah, his Sunnah, the last thing that he's tested with is his wife, and his wife decides to leave him.
He gets really upset.
And he says, you know, if if I'm ever given health again, I'm gonna punish you for doubting Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. And she gets really upset and she leaves. She can't stay with him anymore. It's too difficult to be with him. And so are you but Allah has sent him is all alone, he's abandoned.
And after she leaves, he is still thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He's patient with what Allah subhana wa Taala has given him and then Allah subhanho wa Taala restores what he took away from him. He tells you ballet has sent him hit the ground with your foot with your feet hit the ground. And from the ground, a loss of Hannah Montana brings water and he tells you Allah has sent him take this water, bathe yourself with it, clean yourself, right? wash yourself with it. Now he has to do something, he has to actively try and change his situation. He doesn't just sit back and say I was gonna make money fall off the trees. He has to work for it. Now. Allah Subhana Allah tells him hit
the ground with the feet with your feet. So he's hitting the ground and the water comes out of the ground. And even though he's really sick and it was difficult for him to even move, a lot tells him take the water, drink from the water and all
So use that water to wash yourself, wash your body and the loss of habitat it gives him that cure through this water. Now some people say this water is that, you know, sulfuric water that you find in hot springs, right? But is that healthy to drink?
Are we allowed to drink that water? As far as I know we can't, right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best, but we do see that Allah subhana wa Taala provides for us in simple things. Some people have eczema, you take them to the sulfuric, you know, hot baths, and it cures them as it's good for their skin. So there's cure and everything, even in water. And the loss of Hannah Montana tells Uganda his center, bathe in it, drink the water that is coming from the ground, and slowly his health is restored.
Now after some time, when I use health is restored, his wife she couldn't bear to be away from him. She felt really bad. I abandoned you Valley his center. How can I abandon him, he's someone who's close to a law. He is someone who has been worshipping for so many years, even when everything's taken away from him, he's still connected to a loss of Hanover to Halla thus proving a police completely wrong. The YouTube was patient with whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to him. Even after seven years of struggling, he's still patient. For some of us, we can't even bear seven days of struggling. We can't even bear seven weeks or seven months of struggling, right or you barely has
sent him seven years. He goes through this hardship. And now his wife, she couldn't stand being away from him. So she comes back. And when she returns, she sees that you bahala his senem he's healthy.
He's healthy, haven't done enough. A lot of restored his health. Allah gave him back the things that he took away from him. Slowly he starts to have children again, right with his wife. And Allah subhana wa tada says, He gave him the equal amount of children. And that's again, the like amount. So Allah subhanho wa Taala doubled the amount of children that he had. He had a huge family before now he had a family double the size of how his family used to be. And Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him back property, gave him back family gave him back his wealth, to the extent that a lot of the longer and he tells us of the Hadith of the prophets on a longer day he was sending them which is
mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari, he says, Are you the prophets and along I need to send them he's telling us says you was one day after his health was regained. He was showering. He was taking a shower.
Right? And while he's taking a shower, Allah subhana wa tada starts to make these golden locusts fall from the sky. You know what a locust is? You know what a grasshopper is?
You guys know what a grasshopper is?
Do you know what a grasshopper is?
Do you know how to say yes. Okay, do you know what a grasshopper is?
If you don't know what it is, do you know how to say no?
Yes, we know how to say no right? So Allah subhana wa tada makes these golden locusts. They're like grasshoppers, but bigger, they fall from the sky out of gold. Imagine that somehow Allah I don't know if you know what a what a locust looks like, right? It's like a grasshopper and the grasshopper hops, but they're bigger. And if you ever go to Medina, right, you'll see some kind of law during certain seasons, when the weather changes. You'll see these locusts all over the place. They're big, and they fly. It's like, flying in the sky, right? And you'll be walking into monster than the buoy and another one's flying in front of you. And somehow that's amazing how Allah subhanho wa Taala
makes these locusts out of gold fall down onto a YouTuber Allah has sent him as he's showering. And then remember, he was so wealthy, Allah gave him his health back. He gave him all his wealth, his property, his family, everything was restored. You would think to yourself, a you does not need any more wealth. But he starts to gather those golden locusts. As they fall on the ground, he starts to gather them, it's gold. And the loss of handling data communicates to me, he says, Are you not thankful? Are you you're not thankful I've given you so much more. You're not happy?
He says yeah, but shouldn't I take advantage of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Shouldn't I take advantage of what you're giving to me? And that's an example my brothers and sisters, of how the patience of a uvala his son Adam didn't shake. It didn't change with his hardships. He continued, but at the same time, he takes advantage of the blessings of Allah when Allah gives it to him. Allah gives you something use it allows giving you a nice car drive it, don't just keep it parked up and you polish it and you shine it and you just, you know, drive it in today went to
I went somewhere, I won't say where I went somewhere. And I pulled into this parking lot. And this person has a Tesla, but you know, like the SUV model Tesla, right? So they have that parked in the middle of two spots. So the yellow line is going right through the middle of the car. So this person parks in two spots, and I pulled up and there's no parking spots, and I looked at them, and I'm thinking to myself, and actually said to my wife, I'm like, so when you have a Tesla, you're entitled to two parking spots, right? So Han Allah, Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you with something use it drive it it's gonna get knocked it's gonna get damaged, it's gonna get you know,
hurt or it's gonna break one day alone will give us something more right we have to be we have to have that trust in Allah subhana wa tada and be people that are patient with whatever hardship we go through. And you have Allah He said, um, he collects all this gold. And that's how we see the patience, but the trust and the routine and the TOEIC will have a you have Allah has sent him in Allah subhanho wa Taala. He knows that whatever is taken away from him, will be given back to him. Now,
we mentioned the verse, the last verse of sort of lm Ron verse number 200. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you're Latina. ermanno is wasabi, what are the two? What Taka la Holla Holla come to flee home. Now a lot tells us to be patient. But it's not only a patience that you know, Is this okay? I know you need to be patient. It's a patience that doesn't knock us down. And I want to try and do this as an experiment. Any one here brothers, you and your brothers. Right? Okay. Your brother, the three of you. Okay, good. We're gonna get the three of you to do this.
You know, we don't want to hurt him. Who medic? Yeah, we don't wanna hurt my leg. Right?
One of you might get hurt. So we're gonna get this disclaimer from your parents right now. Where's your dad? Is it okay to use them? Is it okay? If one of them gets hurt? hamdulillah He's like, it's okay. hurt them, right?
Hey, the three of you come? Right. Good. So this is what we're gonna do. You guys usually like fight or argue amongst yourself sometimes at home? Yeah. Okay, so we're gonna pretend like you're doing that.
We're gonna pretend that you're doing that. And we don't want anyone to get hurt for real. Hey, we're just joking about someone getting hurt. So we want to do is we want one of you to push another one down without hurting each other. Right? Don't pick on the smallest one. No, you have to push one of them down. However you do it whether you're wrestling or.
Okay. See, he falls down. Good. He's one person he fell. Now imagine he was like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Would you be able to push him down like that? No. Why not?
He's a big guy. But he was tied to his muscles. Right? So what if I do this? try and push him down.
Try keep trying. Keep trying. Don't go push. Go. Try and push it down.
Both of you try go both of you.
Why can't you push them down? Okay, that's it. That's it. That's it. That's it. See you both felt that hamdulillah good. I was waiting for that.
You could sit down. What did that proof I held on to him and Allah subhana wa tada says the raw the two. What? What does that mean? You all speak Arabic? What is the last panel in China say? What are the two? link yourselves together? Right? tie yourself to patience. be connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, when you tie something, you have a lock you you have your locker at school and you open your locker, you close your locker, open, close, open, close, all of a sudden you put that lock on and it's locked.
It's linked, it's closed, it's locked. You can't open it. It can't No matter how much you try, you can't open this locker. It's firm, wherever it is. And that's what Allah subhana wa tada wants us to do. He wants us to be firm in our belief, to the extent that when someone comes and tries to push us down, they can't win to people try and come and push us down. They can't they fall, but we stay strong. And that's an example of how we need to have that patience in Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we are patient and trust Allah, things will come our way.
But they won't knock us down. They won't knock us down because we know that our heart is connected with a law and we continue to move forward. Even though we might lose our job, we might lose our salary, we might get less pay, we still still continue to move forward because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the link that we have in our hearts. When we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to learn this patience and to earn that patience and acquire it and hold on to it that it that it doesn't and never knocks us down.
