188 Subhanallah True story of an amazing woman Eid ul Adha
practicing Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Allows Muhammad Allah says in the Quran I quote verse again robina in sentimento Ria TB word in the daily these are the basical Muharram robina up masala fragile effetre tamina necesito de la him was akumina thammarat la la homie ash Kuru.
This verse in Surah Ibrahim deals as you can hear
us say that
we're in Sydney Brahim when he left, and his smile, the small baby smile in Macau at the time, his story I think is very well known amongst all of us. The two things I want to talk about this morning. And hopefully it will my shortest goodbye ever.
Few things I wanted to talk about.
And I want to talk about other,
other, other and other.
all of us
are always faced with challenges. Every one of us have a challenge, whether we Muslim, non Muslim doesn't fit on our race, on our status. On our emotional state, it doesn't depend on anything every single person allows for Honduras is there, do you think I am going to leave you alone just for you to say, La ilaha illAllah and not test, you know, allows for Hong Kong to test each and every one of us. And in the holistic model, Allah test every single person will be created. And these challenges that allows behandlar gives us our challenges, not only of material things, their challenges of our religion, challenges of our faith, challenges of our wealth, challenges of our families, challenges
of our jobs, we are faced every day with all kinds of challenges. And we know you're asking me psychologists or psychiatrists that because of these challenges, and the fact that people cannot handle these challenges, people are affected mentally and emotionally physically and spiritually by the challenge which faces them. And the reason for this can be attributed
to the fact that maybe the answer for our worries and our troubles are to be found right in front of us. Right in our own right in our own history. But because we we do not see and we do not read and we do not contemplate on what allows for handler says that maybe we miss out on the what allows one that says in the Quran, one zero mineral for any man who was she felt when warahmatullah mumineen allows for losses. And we have seen done in this book in which there is a
Shiva, we say it is a medicine and a cure for every disease warahmatullah mcweeny. And the most important thing that we need today is mercy.
When we look at the world, what do we say? allows foreigners taken the mercy out of the hearts of the enemies of Islam. They have no mercy for Muslims. And so even amongst us we find there's very little mercy
and we see in our massage some of our massage is under attack, not being bombed by by by the Russian army, or by the American army, or being blown up by ISO, a mosque and attacked by the very people who make Salah inside those machines. They are fighting inside the masjid. So hon Allah is supposed to be a place which is at peace with itself. So and if we don't see this
a damnation, almost to us a very bad word of how we must understand this faith that the last one was given to us. So today inshallah I want to talk about, about other what is other.
We've heard the famous Hadith narrated by none other than the second half of Islam or merville, hottub Rajaratnam himself, the righteous Hadith and he deals with three things. It deals with Islam he man and son. So I'm not going to quote all how to know the Hadith.
How to deal with the question of father
jabril Asad Ibiza Salam ala rasulillah.
What is what is a man?
And he said, You will initiate an email no
Took me in the villa he
was a cat he wanted to be he was really, one took me no bill, he he was heavy.
What did he say? He said that belief is to believe
in the books, the messengers, etc, have allows for mountain and to believe in good and bad
to believe that there is no other divine that has constructed this universe, and nobody else that commands his universe, and nobody else that directs this universe, and nobody else that is decreed what is decreed in this universe.
So we shouldn't believe as Muslims. The first point, which I want to tell you is that everything has been pre ordained by allows for high school either recorded or shared even the last time. So our last one is decreed the good and allows the hydrotherapy clinic also the evil. What do we mean by that? We mean that Allah didn't create evil Allah, Allah created, the deeds which we do which create which, which, from which emanate evil, we do things which becomes evil. There is nothing evil in this world. It's what people do, that makes things which are not evil, evil. And we believe in Islam, that everything that happens to a movement is good.
Even if it looks bad from the outside, everything that happens to a Muslim is good. Our job and the amaryl movement. Let me say Salaam says in the Hadith
movement, I am amazed
at the movement and the deeds of a movement and the life of a woman in Amara hula, hula.
Everything that he does is good.
If a calamity befalls him,
he says Alhamdulillah and it's good for him. And if God comes to him, he says Alhamdulillah and it's good for him. So everything that happens to a moment is good.
So there was this king,
who was a very good advisor, we had a personal advisor, advise him on all these matters. So one day, this king was involved in an accident, and he lost his finger.
So he went to his advisor, and he said to him, what do you think you know about this calamity that struck me, you know, I, I lost my finger in this accident. So the advisor smiled at the king. And he said to the king, shade in Sharla.
Fade In Sharla means good, inshallah. So of course, the king was very upset by this remark, because the thing to do was to sympathize with him. And so for those who don't know, fading, Charlie's smiling, he said Hagen charlo so the king was so upset, he put him in jail.
So later on of law, this man was languishing in jail, the king went on an expedition, and he was captured by a king was a idol worshiper.
So at the time when he was captured,
at that time, this tribe of idol worshipers, they It was a need. And what they did on day eight was to sacrifice a human being on the need.
So the king thought, well, this is another king, our gods will be very pleased if we sacrifice him, to our gods on this day to the idols, but that one rule that the person to be sacrificed to be a complete human being and the king would himself personally inspect the human being. So in inspected this king, if I saw the king only had nine fingers,
and he said to the king, oh, you're a very lucky man. You know, we would have sacrificed you to our God because you only have nine fingers. You're not complete. We can't sacrifice you to today. So eventually, it was a three. And he came back. And
he was and he went any course secretary, the adviser said, well, law he, if it wasn't for the fact that I've lost my finger, out of the dead men today,
and the advisors say to him, Hey, insha Allah. Similarly, if I wasn't put in jail, I would have been with you and they probably would have sacrificed me in your place.
Why? Because there was nothing wrong with him. So everything that happens, whether you put in jail, whether you lose a finger, whether you lose a kidney, whether you lose whatever you have at a loss is given to you your money. What What should you always take, always say, hate insha Allah, they must be good in within that which Allah subhanho wa Taala has given to me so allows Muhammad Allah then
has decreed everything. There was a man as a hobby. He says he was actually the he was
the son of this hobby. And this hobby is actually the travel.
He was in the army. And they went for jihad. And while he was traveling, they said to him that his father in Medina was very ill. And he had to go back when he went back to Medina. He came to his father was extremely he was in his last
and he said to his father, yeah, but he
before you died, give me some good advice.
So they put his father up against some cushions in the setup. And he said to his son, he said,
we have the Oh my son,
learn to the katama darmody he said to his son, oh, my son, you've asked me for advice.
Let me tell you, you will never taste the sweetness of the deen of Islam. Hatter,
you will never taste the sweetness of Islam until had took me until you believe that whatever has struck you would never ever have missed you.
Whatever is come to you, whatever has happened to you would never have missed you, no matter what.
And I know so many times I was driving my car. And as just by like one second there would have been an accident. So behind Allah, or one second Terminator, but just I just made the right move at the right time and I just missed the accident. I'm sure you've come across. You just miss it by shot. You know you, you sweat when you're that sort of experience. So it's a father say to him, you will not taste the sweetness of Dean and till you believe that that which has come to you would never have missed you. It was meant for you.
And whatever has missed you would never have come to you.
And if you don't believe this situation, then you will never taste the sweetness of the deen of Allah. And he said, Sammy Rasool Allah, Allah Allah said he said to his son, Samia to Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
On You said I heard the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala say, a wolmar mahalik Allahu Allah Allah. The first thing which Allah created was the pin
for call Allah azza wa jal
and allows you to say to the pain right and the pain said yeah Allah what Mr. Right
and allows one let's say to the pain of
a heart attack to massage
Missa Sallam said, allow someone to say to the pain, right?
Right, everything that will happen to everything that I've created. everything right, everything. Everything that happened to every human being everything that will happen to the to a planet in the sky, everything will happen to all the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And he said to his son, while law he my son,
if I pass away, and you do not believe in what I'm telling you, then I wash my hands of you, I'm pretty of you. says this is the foundation of the belief of a mini he believes in Canada and further that allows Bahama tada and another Hadith which is narrated by Imam nawawi in his shower on the Alibaba ad buying hoodies on the 40 Howdy, howdy thing they were in the Navy so Sallam said that allows for Honda wrote down
the life of every single human being and everything else 50,000 years before he created created the earth 30,000 years before allows for how the law created the earth. So that is how a Muslim should believe they should believe that everything that happens to him is good, alternative goodness. And he was believed that everything that happens to him is from Allah Santos. So if you lose your job Alhamdulillah Allah decreed this for me If you lose, your child has decreed it to me. If you lose your wealth, it's always good in it for me, always look at the good side of it. So
I want to use I want to say I'm saying this to you.
Because I want you to apply this to your own life. And I want to look at the life of
Allah salatu salam
I want to see how harden dealt with the calamity that allows your hand what Allah had placed in front of her.
Palo Santo says
in Surah, Toba
reverse I think which we should all memorize, allows furnaces talks about our lives. And Allah says, land new see button. Allah says land you see burner. Land means never, never land you see burner land you'll see banner
in cuttable Allahu Allah, Allah says Omaha masasa salam say, nothing will be for you, nothing will happen to you except that which has been written for you.
Who am Allah Allah Allah if Allah tawakoni otaku allows Mohan tala is our protector.
And on allows the handler, we put our trust and our dependence. So
you remember, everything that happens to you is good. If it comes your way is good. And in hindsight, you will see that what happened to you was a very good thing that happened to you. So remember how that is not only what's gonna happen in the future, it is also what is happened in the past, whatever has happened in the past is part of your culture, a part of the Divine Decree for you. So many times we look at the president who say I failed, or I lost. But what about the past when you didn't fail? When you were successful? When you had wealth, that is also part of your life. And so when something happens to you now always look back and say but you know, I had a good life
before. This is a test from Allah subhanaw taala my often come back, my welcome, come back. But my belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala, if that wavers that can ever come back. So one day in the time of honorable hottub, a man had stolen something.
had given the verdict that is and should be cut off.
So this man was a clever man.
He knew is the head. He came in front of Albarn in the court. And he said to honor but how can you chop my head off and allow to be handled as decreed that I should steal what I still
say the prophets of Salaam says Allah decreed everything before we were born 50,000 years before he created the heavens and the earth.
So I looked at him and he said, Well, if Allah decreed it, Nanos responsible for it, so you can cut on my hand, has been written for me. So I might have smiled at him and said,
and it's also been written for me that I should cut off your hand.
Everything has been carried by laws.
So for every deed that you commit, there are consequences. You can't just say that Allah has decreed this for me, you know, there are consequences. And there are consequences for all of us, in this world and consequences in the after.
The second part of my lecture is the creation of hajat earlier salatu salam, and I want you to imagine
this is a woman
a blessing the woman but nevertheless, she is a woman could have been a man as well. I think the calamity would have been the same. And she's there in the desert.
We know maca.
Of course, we know now that
some of the real estate around the Kaaba is what some of the most expensive real estate is to be found around the cup.
Maybe 1000s of years later, but we know at that time, there was no such thing called real estate. There was only desert. In fact, Nabil Brahim attests to the conditions in Makkah, at the time when his wife, Ray robina in a scan to Window Realty. BYD Ray revisar He says, Oh Allah, I am going to leave of my family. Let me say the harder and it's by Allah Hema salatu salam.
And he tells all of the conditions he says be wired in re redesigned online Let's place this why the this valley that I'm leaving them in, there is not a single blade of grass growing in this valley is completely barren, it dry, stone dry. There's nothing here.
I'm debating on Mahara but he says Oh Allah, I'm leaving them at your house, at your place at house.
reading this verse you think hon Allah this man is going to leave his wife, his newly born child
in a desert where there is nothing, not a blade of grass them and water there is absolutely nothing just
mountain love might have love in the mountains of Makkah and desert.
And then what is the asker loves pinata? Does he asked a lot mahanta to look after them to save them.
Give his wife standing crying in front of him with a baby in arms. No, he said, Rob Donna. Leo Kinsella said Alan I'm leaving the media in order for them to establish follow.
I'm leaving the near so that they may worship you.
One other thing to ask you know your wife is going to die under under all circumstances she's gonna die and your baby's going to die.
But what was it? That may not be Brian say what he said it was because he believed in the color of allows pinata. He believed that if they should be fine, as part of the country of laws piled on top of the decree of our laws. But I'm not going to be a negative list. I'm not going to be pessimistic. I'm Bill I believe in Alabama asked for the best and the best that I can ask for is for my wife and child to establish Salah.
More than what they need water more than what they need food. They need to be connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the only way a Muslim can be connected to Allah is spiritually we can see Allah. We worship in essence we can see but we can't see.
So when Allah Allah talks about the whole band, for example, in the Quran,
were quoted the verse Lanyon, Allah Allah whom wah wah, wah, wah, Kenya, diluter cominco, Allah Subhana Allah says, when you make your sacrifice, when you make your core band, that meat and blood doesn't come to me, that is not my connection with you. That is the sacrifice for you to eat and give out and distribute on this earth is nothing to do with me that sacrifice
is for the dunya
what is for me? What are you doing for Allah says your taqwa comes to me.
Your Salah comes to me, you can't do what I make kharbanda don't accelerate the merkabah your carbine is injected by love everything that you do is rejected by Allah subhanaw taala if you don't follow and confirm says
oh one Omar you have to boil a lamp to my piano solo. Let me say something since the first thing I was gonna ask you in depth pmas about your Salah by insano Hassan Hassan Ali, why in facade that facet si romiley and if you fail the tests of Salah you fail all the tests, and if you pass the test of Salah you pass all the tests it's like if you get today there was a different method percent in your subject three for your subject you pass exam
but if you fail in my time you failed English Africans you failed the whole exams.
So that was like Salah. So what did they ask for? Salah
What do we should we leave here and as a heritage to our children. Salah people see as you know her bond is the heritage of
Salah the heritage you must leave behind. This is the fundamental of Islam. Leo theme of Surah
Fatiha either terminal nurse eater we elect him and number two, he asked
for the hearts of men to turn towards his wife and his child.
Not that they should come and feed them. No. He asked for their hearts and minds to be close to his family. People must love them
what a Zuko Mina sama Dini also something really great. really outstanding, really out of this world. He says, what a Zuko mean, Allah give them
of all the nicest fruit on the dunya.
This is not for water, or food. Now he says he wants Camelot. Camelot means fruit. all different kinds of fruits behind Allah. Look at his
tawakkol on Allah Subhana II believe that Allah Subhana Allah could bring the best fruit to that empty desert. He believed Allah could send millions and millions of people to that empty desert with good hearts when they come to that place.
He believed in those things. And he believed that that place will become the cradle of the greatest civilization that was ever that ever came into this dunya on the heels of a baby from a wall of water, Allah created the greatest civilization and the greatest faith Subhanallah through the sacrifice and the understanding of Ibrahim and Hodges, aloha salatu salam. So now she's there.
And she's she's just given birth to the baby, a brace the empty to normal milk. And she says to novembre Eve, Oh, my Oh, my husband.
My I would have said, Oh, my husband, you're a prophet. Why are you leaving me here?
No. She didn't say Why are you leaving me? She said, Oh, my husband. Did Allah tell you to leave here?
Did Allah say you must leave me? He said yes.
imagine you don't come with own with any money. No wife says,
My husband is this decree of a loss? hunter? He says yes. And your wife says
Why did she say that?
Because the connection that they had with Allah Subhana Allah was a direct connection of absence, absolute trust.
In the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what did she do?
What did she do?
all the children run. She ran from one
Hill to another Hill, and back to the first Hill, and then back to the second Hill, and back to the first Hill, seven times here and up and down.
mathematically speaking, she in fact, went nowhere. She stood still there was just standing between
one of the thought examinees looking forward, they would run all over baby on top of the mountain, maybe it is around the valley to see. But she she she didn't. Why did she do that?
She did something which she thought she had to do. She knew that allows the Huntelaar wanted her to do something.
Just like when we are in dire straits allows us to do something. You can't lose your job and sit at home and lock the front door. You have to do something. If your health is giving in, you have to do something. You have to take medicine, you have to beg exercise, you have to do something.
If you're in a situation where you failed at something, you have to do something or let's fix as always to do something wine. So that allows a handler can put his Baraka in that thing. So she knew there was nothing she could do. She was giving her nothingness as somebody wrote, she was giving a nothingness to our laws. There's nothing she would give to our laws except to do something and all she could think of doing was that so people will lose their jobs. Some people come salsa, Mozart, some people go door to door. Some people do something that they never thought they would ever do. But because they know that if they if they get up and they do something allows follow up with
Baraka, it was a do
And may Allah put Baraka and Allah said we do something. So we hear that Salah is important. We are that we don't make Salah Yong, go to Jana, all your deeds is 00. So what do we do? What should we do? We should do something?
Should we should at least make one sign up for a start every day? You can't just say well, you know, no, you must do something. And if you do something,
if you because what are you trying to do? You tend to get close to our last Hunter. If you come crawling to Allah, Allah comes walking to you, if you can't walk into Allah, Allah comes running to you and if you come running to Allah, Allah comes to you like lightning.
SubhanAllah so harder.
What happened, allows her to ascend
the hill of Israel, a well came out and water came, that was the water of a start of a civilization. So these, this is the example of Haji Alia of salatu salam believe in the Divine Decree of Allah was Han who wattana So today, Muslims find themselves in the world at that level.
We have no power
We seem to be losing everything. Everything has a hegemony over everybody who rules us.
We have never been at this low point, historically, then in the 1400 years that Islam has been,
yeah, we had an extremely low point.
And when we add this at this low point, many people react to it in different ways.
Some people become despondent.
Some people become angry.
Some people go to the extreme end, they become violent,
which is not part of Islam. Some of us become extremists. Some of us leave the Drina become secularists.
Because we try and implement and follow the secularists model, the modern model, the secular model, that the only way we can win is by having arms and an army. And by being in league with the big nations of the world, as is Russia or America, or China, whatever it may be. And we refuse, and we ignore the model of our grandmother Haji Alia salatu salam,
the model of struggling even when it looks hopeless, having hope even when it looks hopeless, and never going against the sooner amateur allowed is a lump in our struggle, and never going beyond the junctions of the Quran in our struggle. So when allowed to have a handle on the first ones to this incident in the poorer
in a suffer will murder with them in sha Allah from unhygenic jailbait, our Tamara de la jolla Hylia Yato Furby Hema Oman totowa
Jacques Attali in this verse
Surah Baqarah lost his first 158 I think it is, Allah refers to that Safa and Marwa
one incident changed the whole world, the struggle of one woman
with a newborn baby change
the direction of the whole world. And so, in this verse 48, if you read verse 58, and you go back to verse 153, and you read from 153 258, you find the coherence of the Quran, which is called the another of the Quran.
And what is another of the Quran, Allah speaks in the first verses about about sacrifice. Allah talks in the first verses from 53 onwards, about sacrifice and about patience. And only the last verse, Allah gives the example of the greatest patience, and the greatest sacrifice any person has ever made. And the beauty of the sacrifice was that it was a sacrifice that was given with the utmost of patience. So panela with the utmost of patience, and allows for him describe the people around him as a world that he was a man with a very soft heart. So that tells you how hurtful It must have been to him. But how great his faith must have been in a long time. Today, something
happens to us of a heart and Allah, something small happens to us and we think we're the old world is no, you're not going to come down upon us. We get sick and we say oh, I'm gonna die. I'm gonna die. So how long winded What are you concerned about die? be concerned about living? Death is in Alice hands. Death is Mugabe still alive? He's 93 years old.
His wife married him she thought he was gonna die quickly. Grace married him when she thought well, you know, this is old man.
Maybe our liver even that is in the hands of a lost pinata. So May Allah forgive each other, that we put our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala that we read and contemplate on the struggle of our role models. Our grandmother's
name we say that you know hydrolase salam, that we cling to the Quran and Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam because that is the sure method of success, and that we listen to the great stories of the Sahaba in the MBR lives of Salaam and we carry it back to our homes and infuse it into our children and tell them what the important things is in life. Now Allah Allah give inshallah Did you have a good day each Allah May Allah Subhanallah give that alumnus except hola corbon Mr. la sala give to those who have not yet made intention to make corbon remember the bulk of our last house that has given us four days. So if you haven't yet made any intention, make intention now.
Make intention now. Not only for now if you can't afford this Sal next year in sha Allah, say next day in sha Allah, I spoke to a man yesterday, his name is Abdullah attends this Masjid. He lost his job
time ago. And he came to me and he said to me, uh, no chef, you one day said that we must not be involved in Riba and revise will destroy us.
So he said, and when you said that, I went home to my wife, and I said to my wife, you know that. She said, you know, we mustn't involve ourselves in the rebar. I've made my intent. I said, on that I said, make your intention that you're going to get out of rebar. Today, make it today, today. Now also, not only for that tomorrow, make it today. And whatever transactions you're going to do make a vow to Allah, that you're not going to get involved in river and you're going to leave this as a legacy for your children. And he said, he went back to his wife and he said to his wife, his wife says, yes, you lost your job. You got a bond in your house with a boat, you got a loan on your car.
They said I make money. And he said he's got his money from his previous job. He paid off a lot of his bond, he paid his car off Subhanallah and then six years later, Allah gave him another job. So hard Allah was not involved in Riba not involved in he says he we work there was you know, it was a supermarket type of it was wide. So Allah gave him another job, a better job. And so behind Allah says when I look back now as if everything that happened to me was good.
Everything I thought it was bad. I thought it was the worst thing that could happen to me. I had a wife and children I was in a car and yeah, I lost my job in the middle of a recession. So barnala So I said to you in
nelarabine in Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah Azza McComb, work in yonder illa
workflow become professors Adam says Allah doesn't look at who you are what you look like when you look like a mom or a shareholder molana interested in this was not interested in this. I wear this because to elevate the day they have innovation, they have glorified our last hydroton we our best clothes, that is a solemn say.
So Allah looks directly at your heart. You say to Allah looks not in your face, Allah looks directly
in your heart, and Allah sees right out at the bottom. The slave of mind wants to be good. The slave of mind wants to do the right thing. And he's made his knee ice cream to do same with hedge mikania for HUD.
Hello toggle accepted and the best thing about Nia is what is that if you make the Nia you get the reward before you do the thing.
So if you sit in the back near you're gonna build a Masjid sincerely for the sake of Allah already you are will be given any word of a house engender without even having both domestic without leaving your seat that you sitting on a domestic without leaving it Subhana Allah so all the good intentions may curbar inshallah not this year from next day every avenue Nicobar inshallah I'm going to go over hide inshallah, I'm going to get out of river inshallah which means that Allah will give you a job or a profession or a business way there will be no Riba.
May Allah, Allah give them that we feed our children with Helen and we establish SWAT What do you think of Salah? So have a good day insha Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala.
