hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala fuseini see them Hamad while he was Sahih h May

00:00:14--> 00:00:18

Allah subhanho wa Taala has created everything in this universe

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

and he created humans, the children of Adam

00:00:23--> 00:00:27

but he did not leave them without any maintenance.

00:00:28--> 00:00:40

He did not leave them without means of sustenance. And the last pelota Allah said that he inserted Earth in a very beautiful he said well and mechanical Phil already

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

was al Nana Kofi ham is palyed and Mata Quran,

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

Allah subhanaw taala saying verily we have established you upon the earth

00:00:52--> 00:01:00

and make for you there in ways of livelihood. Colleen and Martha Sharon and how little are you grateful?

00:01:01--> 00:01:13

So Allah subhanaw taala una el muma can fill out of who will live the tel Luna can be local RBA Tilden McCann minerais Ramon FSS in well as

00:01:15--> 00:01:26

they said, the one who, who was given establishment on earth or in any place is the one who is able to occupy that space or a place without any competition

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

without any challenge.

00:01:31--> 00:01:39

And this is actually what the last pantalla did to the humans, the children of Adam, he allowed them to occupy this planet Earth.

00:01:41--> 00:01:52

So, there are no other species on this earth, that have the power, who have the power to challenge the authority and the power and control of humans on this earth.

00:01:53--> 00:02:23

And yes, our life our our life in this earth depends on you know the, the means of substance. It depends so the resources that the last minute Allah has created in this earth. But the last panel what Allah has equipped has granted this child of Adam, the son of Adam, you know the the power to make an income or to make a living or to earn his daily bread?

00:02:24--> 00:02:38

Was your luck comfy hammer is Tallinn and mash Kuru and Allah subhanho wa Taala said Colleen and Martha Sharon, how little are you grateful because Allah Allah knows that he we will take everything for granted.

00:02:39--> 00:03:04

We wake up every morning, being able to breathe, being able to drink water, being able to walk and to go to work and make a living. Turn on your car come to the mercy do things. But we don't pay attention to this nap. We take them for granted. And that's why last month and I said Colleen and Martha Sharon because if we you the moment you pay attention to the number

00:03:05--> 00:03:39

if you are driving in a safe place and you feel like you are safe, you feel that you have your your income for the day you have your bread for the day your family safe, everything is fine. If the moment you pay attention to this niram you will automatically thank Allah subhanho wa Taala but the problem with the majority of people that they don't pay attention to these, these bounties, this Naboo take everything for granted. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala said karelian Mehta school as a result of this Allah subhanaw taala called himself a reserved

00:03:40--> 00:03:58

and sometimes he's named in the Quran and Razak and Rosa phanerozoic. They have the same meaning as sometimes a las panatela would call himself Cairo rasa tea, the best of all providers. So what is the difference between a result and erratic result is an intensive form of a Razak.

00:04:00--> 00:04:45

They have the same meaning which is the provider. But the reserved is has an intensive form because Allah subhanaw taala provides for all his creation, those who believed in him and those who disbelieved in him. He created every single creation, Earth is benefiting from the risk of a loss of Hanover tan. So you could translate the word Arizona as the supreme provider, and highroad rasa tea in the best of all providers. Because in our life, when we interact with each other, you know, children might think that the Father is providing for them. The wife will tell you that I depend on my husband, I don't have an income children or young adults will tell you I don't have an income. I

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

have a job. I depend on my father. It's okay to say these things. They are these. This is not a statement of sheer cola because they it means that they don't have an income, they don't have money. So I've using the resources coming from from the

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Your parents or from someone else. So in what in what appears to people these people are providing to each other. But one must know what Allah reminds us all the time that he's Pharaoh Raja ki, he's the best of all providers. And that's why in the Quran he said well ma'am in there but in fill out of the Illa Allah hair is poor. He said there is no creature on earth, except that its sustenance depends on Allah subhanho wa Taala and that includes every creation of Allah subhanaw taala Ibrahim and a celeb one time made the dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He made the drive to Allah to provide for the believing inhabitants of Mecca.

00:05:43--> 00:05:52

So he was concerned about the meaning who live who would live in the city of Mecca at that time, Macau was not there.

00:05:53--> 00:06:03

It was an open Valley. He left his wife Hatcher, and, and her son is married Elisa Lam. And that was a great actually less than two awkward.

00:06:04--> 00:06:15

We'll come back to it. He left his his wife and his son there. And he knew he had he trusted in the power of philosophy Hannah attallah worth it perfumer in the lives of Russia.

00:06:16--> 00:07:02

And mainly due for his actually descendants. Because the people who inhabit makup people who live in Mecca they will be most of them will be his his descendants. So he made it to Allah subhanaw taala to provide for those who believed in in Allah and the Day of Judgment. We did our last panel with Allah say Allah replied said I will provide for the believers and for the non believers. I will provide for everyone and this is in Surah Baqarah Michelle has a better than Amina worship Allah whom in a thermos Marathi men M and M in whom Billa he will do will after this what Abraham said and alasa woman kuffaar that means woman caffarel provide for him for all material who Kalyan Pharaoh

00:07:02--> 00:07:21

who either either be not obey celibacy. So in this ayah 120 16 sawtell bacara Allah subhanaw taala telling us about the door as I said, If Ibrahim alayhis salam, when he said My Lord, make it a secure town, which is a beautiful da I mean, security is a big niraamaya one, security is a beginner

00:07:22--> 00:08:05

and provide its people with this with fruits, whoever of themselves, have them believe in Allah and the Day of Judgment. And Allah subhanaw taala said, and whoever disbelieves they will benefit from the provision of Allah, Allah attack, they will benefit from the risk of Allah subhanaw taala but for a short period of time, because Allah subhanaw taala said, I will grant them enjoyment for a little for all material who Polina Summa afara who Allah either be not, and then I will force them into the punishment of hellfire. And it is an evil destination. You know, when the last point Allah uses the word I forced them, I always think about alikum Selim about death, that everyone is

00:08:05--> 00:08:43

destined to this, you know, destination, everyone will die, no one will have choice, no one will escape death. Everyone is moving towards this destination, he will die He will go to the grave whether he's a Muslim or not, or a non Muslim, this is the way Allah Allah without this is a rule that the Lost Planet Allah has made in this in this life in this universe, that people will be moving to this whether they like it, they don't like it, they will reach old age, they will become weak. This is the sooner philos pinata and they will die and then they will be resurrected. So they will be forced into this direction by Allah by the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:45--> 00:09:32

So, this is what is called the owner they call it general sustenance, and the rest of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala would give it to everyone will give it to all his creation is a general provided to the righteous, the wicked, provided to those who believe in the last panel to Allah, those who don't believe everyone as I said every single creation will benefit from the risk of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanaw taala created them and he has guaranteed that they will have this risk their provision in this life whether it's it's a little or in a big amount, Allah subhanaw taala clearly did not make people have different you know, resources, some of them have limited resources. Some of

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

them have limited you know, means financial means some of them are wealthy, and they have plenty of resources. So this is the placement of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala decides This is his decision when someone is is born. Before that Allah subhanaw taala has decreed his, the term, the time that he will spend on this earth and how much money he will earn on this earth. So this is the first type of risk

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

There is another type of risk which is more important. And this is something that is given to the selected to allows the selected Allah any the servant to philosopher Hana or to add Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless them with something special, that is faith and knowledge, spiritual sustenance that is given to those of us panatela likes and loves those special servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala we will benefit from this near man the name of a man and the neighbor of salaat or being a Muslim, being able to perform your eBay that being the name of having a desire to know Allah subhanho wa Taala to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala or having this desire to seek knowledge and

00:10:47--> 00:11:06

read the Quran and getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala so these are given to you know, the selected servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who know you know the you know, the the value of having a strong relationship with the last panel with Allah know, the value of these special gifts.

00:11:08--> 00:11:23

Because many people complain about not having a job or the always think about all their priorities in life are about securing a job securing an income, securing a shelter, all these things are important. But there are other people who are worried about they're

00:11:24--> 00:11:28

worried about their relationship with Allah Subhana which are worried about they're

00:11:30--> 00:12:13

worried about if Allah Subhana Allah is pleased with them or not. These are their priorities. So people have different priorities. And Allah subhanaw taala told us that he is the one who blessed these messengers and prophets and pious people with this now. It comes from him whatever Nima we have in this life comes from Allah subhana wa Tad so that's why he told us about musala Salah when Bella should the who was Stella attina hookman where Allah, okay, then you can actually see the martini. So surah cosas Allah, Allah said, When Musa alayhis salam has reached or attained full strength and was mentally mature, he was mature, which is the age at that time and last but not

00:12:13--> 00:12:57

least talking about Musashi Salah, when he reached the age between 30 to 33, will la huhtala Adam This is the estimation of some scholars. And he was made a messenger Prophet 10 years later, when he reached the age of 40, after he spent 10 years in in the area of median and decided to go back to Egypt to visit his family. So now but the last friends that have told us about this ayah is soldiers and passes when Musa alayhis salam was in Egypt before going to Medina. So I must have blessed him with what with knowledge and with the power of making or making judgment to distinguish between what is wrong and what is right. What am Abella should do? We're still at a no Rockman wind, energy and

00:12:57--> 00:13:32

masini What did Allah subhanaw taala tell us about talking about musala Scylla but this time is telling us something about an Javier La Silla, the other prophets and for sure he was a prophet, there is no doubt that he was a prophet. He was acting like a prophet receiving ye from Allah subhanho wa Taala and COVID La Silla will people will some people, some scholars decided, or they came up with the view that he he was not a prophet, he was only a saint to worry a pious man. Then Subhana Allah, many Muslim groups

00:13:34--> 00:14:21

were corrupted. They became corrupted because of this appeal. And they started believing that well he could be better than a prophet or a man within the the Shia or there could be better than the Prophet using this proof. Here is there is no doubt as a father Allah said I was a prophet. But what did the last fella said about him? When Mashallah Sarah was his servant. We're looking for this man and how they're La Silla. He said for OSHA, I've done many betina I think the harassment and mean Indiana wildner home in Laguna Alma. So he said, then they found a servant from among our servants, who to whom we had given Mercy from Us. So Allah subhanaw taala has placed mercy before knowledge,

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

this is something that students of knowledge have to pay attention to. Mercy comes before knowledge,

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

mercy in the way you deliver the message, you have to have mercy in the way talking to people making data, solving their problems. You have to treat people with mercy. There are many people who give priority to what is wrong, right. And they keep you know, judging people passing judgment over their brothers and sisters, because we don't understand the concept of mercy. So this is a beautiful example of loss. Patel is telling us even though we know that will cover La Silla will be doing things

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

appear tough

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

things that we don't understand if they happen in front of our eyes, we will not we will not understand them, we will not absorb them easily the killing of a child

00:15:15--> 00:15:41

but SLM through new through l y, that this child will grow up Allah told him will grow up and he will make his parents suffer, he will be a source of suffering for his for his parents. So Allah subhanaw taala decided it was his decision to see Allah as decision not on how their decision that this child would die at that time. And Allah spirit Allah would replace him with another with a pious child.

00:15:42--> 00:15:49

So is something that we human beings, Mashallah Salama, great messenger could not understand that action at that moment.

00:15:50--> 00:16:29

But even though with all these things happening, at that moment, in that story, Allah subhanaw taala described this man, that is, he is someone who was given mercy, that the last part, Allah blessed him with mercy. So he did these things out of mercy, because he was concerned about the safety of those who are working in the ship, and concerned about the the wealth of those two orphans in the town. So he did all these things and concerned about the well being of the two parents. So everything was done with mercy. But when you look at it, you think that No, I mean, he's doing corruption now.

00:16:31--> 00:16:46

He's destroying the ship of these poor people who are working the sea. We don't have an income. This would appeal to us if we see it happening in front of us, what might appear, and this is how Musa alayhis salam looked at it at the time.

00:16:47--> 00:16:52

But the point here, that the last hotel is saying at a na hora met and mean ended.

00:16:53--> 00:17:05

So the the mercy that he had in his heart, it was a gift special gift given to him by Allah subhanaw taala and this is a special type of risk. It is a risk.

00:17:06--> 00:17:49

Even when you have good manners, this is a risk from Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you are skilled and you know how to deal you have customer service, good customer service, this is a risk from Allah subhanaw taala Actually, this good customer service might bring you money. So it's a source of income could be a source of income for you. So all the things that you have in your life, whether they are tangible, material things, or things that you don't pay attention to skills, or a lab or manners, or anything that you are equipped with is a risk from a loss panic attack. What did the last time I said about Look man, attain lokman and hikma attain? We have given look man and achema

00:17:49--> 00:18:02

wisdom What did he say about to a man and a Salah for for Hamner hasta la man wakulla Athena hoekman wideman so Allah subhanaw taala saying there was a mess Ella there was a case there

00:18:03--> 00:18:06

in front of Suleiman and his father though

00:18:07--> 00:18:53

they were supposed to make a judgement in that case, but the last panel to Allah decided to bless Suleiman, who is the son not the father, the father here is the seller. Of course, it was not offended, Tessa was able to solve the problem. So they manage the profit and they owed his profit, but Sulaiman was the son. So he expected the father to be more knowledgeable right to be more experienced. But the last panel Tyler decided to give the Hecuba or the knowledge of that certain that certain case, that specific case to Suleiman, if I have nasally man, well, Colin attina hookman were in MA. And he said that to each of them, we gave judgment and knowledge. That's why chef Islam

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

was Tamia, one of his daughters, Aloma mollema, Ibrahima limini, where mufa Hema Sulaymaniyah for him.

00:19:02--> 00:19:30

This is beautiful. If you want to increase your knowledge or you want to last pantalla to increase your knowledge. She has them as Jamie usually used to repeat his this to her in his in his suit will allow to Allah Allah, Yahweh Allah Ibrahim Oh, the one who taught Ibrahim Teach me. Well the word who blessed Suleiman Solomon with understanding bless me with with the right understanding, because the right understanding of the deen is a great name

00:19:32--> 00:20:00

is a great name you * to fit in when you read the law who be hired on you * a goofy Dean. This is the heartbeat of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said the one if Allah subhanaw taala wants goodness for his servant, then He will bless him with the right understanding of the deen because there are many people who memorize Howdy. And they memorize Quran and they know the Messiah is a matters of fact, that we don't have the right understanding and

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

You might end up actually creating problems instead of solving problems. It could be a source of confusion and division in the community. They know that Heidi,

00:20:10--> 00:20:18

we can recite a hadith in front of you or recite the ayat of the Quran. But there is no the right they don't have the right understanding of the D.

00:20:19--> 00:20:23

So this is another problem. So memorizing memorization itself

00:20:24--> 00:20:39

will not solve the problem we need to understand we need to ask a lot of talent all the time to bless us with the right understanding of this team. So faith and wisdom and Eman and the right understanding our special gifts from the last panel water.

00:20:40--> 00:20:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala prescribed for us as Muslims to repeat more than 70 times every day in our Salah to repeat the recitation of Surah Fatiha and in salted Fatiha they are great to add which is Yakubu er can stay

00:20:57--> 00:21:44

you will worship and you will seek help from so we seek help from Allah subhana wa Tada. So what is whether we are seeking you know means of livelihood. We're seeking risk. We're looking for an income or we want to last penetrated to increase our knowledge or to help us come to the mercy enable us to come to them as an appraiser five daily prayers or enable us to fast the Mondays and Thursdays or do an excellent job during the days that the days of the Asia whatever you are seeking whatever you you want to achieve. You need to seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala you always rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala we need his help. So we know that he's reserved he's the best provider and he has

00:21:44--> 00:22:09

the power subhanho wa Taala to you know to give us what we want and that's why the Buddha man he said the definition one of the best definition of tawakkol they said who was said quality Madame calvia Allah, fish dish labby masala He will definitely mother remain ohmori dunya will sit at the Columbia Allah Allah He said Is it is the truly the definition of telecon

00:22:10--> 00:22:25

it is the truly place your trust or rely upon Allah subhanaw taala with your heart to gain the benefits, the benefits or repelled hearts from the matters of dunya this dunya and the afterlife.

00:22:26--> 00:22:47

So you rely upon Allah subhanaw taala and all your matters whether they are mundane parts of this matters of this dunya worthy life or they are part of immortal. But then Musa alayhis salam, he was instructed to tell his people to enter Jerusalem the story was mentioned in sort of film made

00:22:48--> 00:22:51

and the refuse to enter Jerusalem at that time.

00:22:52--> 00:23:14

They were scared and they were scared to ya know, they were worried. They were afraid of their enemies and they didn't want to go inside yourself to pious people try the Tafseer their own amount of CFD said these two people could be actually Moosa and heroin or they could be Moosa A heroin and use sha Allah which

00:23:16--> 00:23:34

is another prophet, who will lead the love boo Surah Al who led the home of when Israel after the death of musala Center, because Harun la Sierra passed away before Moosa and then Moshe, when he was 120 years old will love to Allah alum and then after Moosa, the leadership,

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

the you know, the was was

00:23:39--> 00:24:28

in the hands of you shabu Allah, Allah. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala told us to pious people from the children of Israel at the time, told them enter upon them through upon them through the gate. For one you entered, you'll be dominant. So this is that was the promise of a lost pinata. You just have to enter the gate of yourself and you will be successful, you'll be dominant. And then at the end of the I said, we're all alive at our color, income, meaning and upon a lot of lie. If you are if you believe in Him, if you are believers, then you should place your trust in Allah subhana wa tan. So we trust in the in the plans of Allah Spanner with Allah we trust in the power of Las panatela in

00:24:28--> 00:24:50

his abilities, because we know that Allah subhanaw taala has the power to do things and he has the ability to give us whatever we want. And he has the ability to make change happen in our life or in the life of anyone and to fulfill our needs. And this state of mind is priceless here one because it will give us some amazing peace of mind.

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

When when you know the power within and of has to be a loved one in Milwaukee. And you know the story of Abraham and his Salah when a lot

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

When he was thrown in the fire, and you know that it is the last statement that Ibrahim Ali Salim said, the last statement has been a low and middle key ally sufficient for us. And he's the best disposal of affairs. And we know that the last panel that Mohammed Salim and his companions, Allah told us about the story, made the same statement and the last panel data set saved them from against the plots of the people of Makkah, who were plotting against them, you know, all these things, you know, the value of this world, when you are facing some hardship, facing some difficulties, and you keep repeating this statement, you should feel comfortable, you should feel at ease. If someone is

00:25:41--> 00:25:52

sick, yet when someone is sick, and he had the chance to go to the best doctor in town, or the best doctor in the whole country, right? Wouldn't he feel at ease

00:25:53--> 00:26:04

that he is handling his matters, the hand matters of his health to the best doctor in town, right. So we have Allah subhanho wa Taala our Creator who is in working

00:26:05--> 00:26:14

to work on behalf of the Rebellion last but Allah is promising you that if you place your trust in Him, Allah subhanaw taala will suffice your need

00:26:16--> 00:26:33

komiya tawakkol Allah Allah for who has this is promise philosophia worker therapy joaquina cafa v work ILA and Allah subhana wa tada is sufficient, there is no need to seek help or to place your trust you can seek help from other people in a different way.

00:26:34--> 00:26:48

Actually, so, so you can seek help from people if you are trying to achieve something. But when we when it comes to relying, placing your trust you should only place your trust in the power of Allah subhana wa jal.

00:26:49--> 00:27:17

So everyone, everything else becomes a tool in your life, including people you know, including the degrees that you have, including the money the financial means that you have everything in your life becomes a tool. And you only place your trust in in in the last panel to Allah in the power philosophy panel, which Allah when we used to work on Allah He for her husband, now, there is a challenge yet one a challenge.

00:27:18--> 00:27:24

When it comes to a token, the formula of tawakkol is is very sensitive.

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

any slight any small deviation with

00:27:30--> 00:27:40

any small deviation, it will affect your outcome. And you you might you might actually struggle, you might not achieve your goals.

00:27:41--> 00:27:53

The formula, if tawakkol is very first giant. So you need to pay attention, you need to make a balance between the right balance.

00:27:56--> 00:28:09

So the challenge with the vocal one is to the concept of local is to achieve the right balance between relying upon Allah subhana wa Taala.

00:28:10--> 00:28:21

And at the same time using the available means and the resources, you need to use them. Whatever available resources and means that are available to you, you need to use them.

00:28:23--> 00:28:54

But while using them, you have to guard your heart. You have to protect your heart, you have to watch your thoughts, your inner thought, are you relying upon these means and the resources or you are relying solely upon Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the challenge with our code. Otherwise, that our code is a great act of eval. If you are used to what code is your pure you will achieve your goals There is no doubt about it.

00:28:55--> 00:29:05

Because this is his promise when we eat a lot of life, our hospital, there is no doubt about it. The problem is what's going on inside. That's the problem.

00:29:07--> 00:29:13

And this is something personal no one can help you with it. No one can help me with it. It's me It's my personal

00:29:14--> 00:29:26

life. I have to work it out. I have to rely firmly on the power of Allah at the same time using these resources. And this means

00:29:27--> 00:29:37

within our humans connections, financial means degrees whatever think you have in your life. Whatever means you have enough to use them.

00:29:38--> 00:29:48

That's why the rule Emma D said your guru le lt fer to an ELT photo. This is a famous statement and it will refer to lls verbi COVID e.

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

ll defer to lls verbal veto heat, water cool. The bill s babbie pericoli Shariati o paddlefish Sharia

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

They said,

00:30:03--> 00:30:38

you know, relying on one's means and resources is a deviation from puteaux heat for not saying the person becomes mushnik it doesn't become mushy, but it is a deviation from the Pew tell him that we are supposed to have in our life as Muslims is a deviation because you are relying on your resources and means paying attention more to the connections you have to your friends, to your cousins, to you care that whatever connection whatever resources you have, you're happy you're satisfied with these resources.

00:30:39--> 00:30:49

Forget about the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala because he has the power to stop all these resources and make them invalid.

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

They will not help you.

00:30:52--> 00:31:02

They will not help you. Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created a cause and effect. And a Lost Planet. Allah is the one who controls the relationship between the cause and effect.

00:31:03--> 00:31:11

So here, the remedy said and this is a very important statement, Turku led to

00:31:12--> 00:31:27

a water cooler, the bilious baby photography Shariati and to abandon or to store the use to stop the use of the means and the resources is a deviation from the law or from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu it was in

00:31:28--> 00:32:12

and Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us about some beautiful stories in the Quran, where you'll be amazed story if you will tell you about it. And the story of a Maria Maria Sara, and you pay attention to the story and say why did Allah ask them to do this doesn't help. I mean, it's not effective, but still a lost battle would ask them to follow the means of achievement. Because the last point I want to indicate the owner, you need to pay attention need to do your job. So there are basic three basic principles with this challenge. If we pay attention to them, in sha Allah Bismillah AR Allah, we will be able to have a pure talk will achieve this future worker in our life.

00:32:12--> 00:32:30

three principles, principles, the first one, the family said there should be no conflict lamina Fattah, Bina tawakkol will ask the will as well, there should be no conflict between our dependence on our last panel to Allah and the use of any means or resources.

00:32:31--> 00:32:33

So you have to work it out.

00:32:34--> 00:33:14

You have to remove you know, this idea of you know, there is a conflict between the two. No, I will I'll give you some examples that are in Sahih Bukhari, for example, if your ambassador of the lower adho told us this story, he said the people of Yemen at the time of the Sahaba time of Rasulullah XSL, the people of Yemen because the why the Quran was revealed at that time. He said they used to travel for Hajj, without taking any provision, without taking any provision here could be that we used to have a provision just to suffice them their needs during their travel during their trip from Yemen, to Makkah.

00:33:15--> 00:33:18

But when we reach Makkah,

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

they had no food,

00:33:21--> 00:33:24

nothing with them. So they used to ask people for help.

00:33:25--> 00:33:32

What was their argument? Or Lucario, Kowloon even a Bezier code, they used to say national moot our killer.

00:33:34--> 00:33:35

We are the people of our code.

00:33:36--> 00:33:41

So that was their understanding of tawakkol. Wrong understanding of course.

00:33:42--> 00:33:55

So they used to take some limited amount maybe provision just to suffice their needs during their travel their trip. We reach Mecca, they ask people for help. You need now food. So you ask people

00:33:56--> 00:34:44

so their argument was nununu torqeedo. The best said Allah subhanaw taala revealed sawtell bacara What is a word do for in the hydrazone taco. Allah spent Allah said take provisions, but indeed you should know the best provision is fear of a loss panna cotta. So yes, you keep in mind that the best provision is to have the best provision is taqwa is fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But when it comes to material means you're supposed to use them. So and it is up to you it is your job to make a balance between the two you can reach achieve our goal while still using these means and resources. The second

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

principle here, the ruler Maddy said love with them in the bill as well. Means the resources are to be sought and taken. Even if they are weak. Like you feel you have no nothing is available for you. Yeah

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

You can do something but you don't believe it will help

00:35:04--> 00:35:17

you believe that what you have whatever resources you have are effective if we feel like they're very weak they will not help you. Their own memory is saying here even if you feel

00:35:18--> 00:35:23

that these means that you have a not very powerful you still have to use them.

00:35:24--> 00:35:35

This is the Sunnah of Rasulullah, Salah, and the sooner of the rest of the prophets and messengers. And what is it delete? What are the proofs? Look at the story. If you have a seller and the story of Maria,

00:35:37--> 00:35:42

the story of you by Sarah he was sick for 18 years.

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

Are you very similar? for 18 years?

00:35:49--> 00:36:06

on the bed, he didn't have power. He lost his he lost everything in his life. It was a very it was a major trial. A huge seller went through a major trial he was sick for 18 years. The only person who stayed with him is his wife.

00:36:09--> 00:36:10

And then when he made that to

00:36:13--> 00:36:52

Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted his his daughter after 18 years for a BA Nima SR baru will enter have a Rahimi in Surah till MBA analyst Rotella and answered his door, but still in the process, what Allah subhanaw taala wanted to bless him with good health, what did he say? Or cause bearish leka as a motor salmonberry to mushara he was sick he was his body was affected. Allah subhanaw taala wanted to bless him with good health. So he asked him to he said I will give you a water spring. So you take a shower with this water and you drink from it. And you can again get your health again.

00:36:54--> 00:36:57

But what did he say strike the ground with your foot?

00:36:58--> 00:37:14

Why does he strike does he have to strike the ground with his foot he is very sick is very weak type let's say someone let's say someone who is very healthy and very strong right? If he strikes the ground with his foot, do you think he will be able to

00:37:15--> 00:37:21

to to get some water from the ground? You have to dig right maybe 200 meters sometimes.

00:37:23--> 00:37:36

Even if someone is healthy, he will not be able to get water just by striking the ground with his with his foot. So why is Allah subhanaw taala Why did Allah subhanaw taala ask you to strike the ground with his foot

00:37:37--> 00:37:39

so much better is educating Muslims

00:37:40--> 00:37:46

that even if their means whatever means you have they are very weak still you have to do your part.

00:37:47--> 00:38:06

You need to do your part. And this is actually the that was the source of the rollout Allah alimony think about the history of the Muslim Ummah, back in the last 200 years, three years. Actually one of the biggest problems that we had is, is the problem with the concept of token.

00:38:07--> 00:38:15

We Muslims were taught to place their trust in someone else beside the last panel with Allah. That's why we had shrines everywhere.

00:38:17--> 00:39:03

People were taught to place their trust on the power of those dead people that science pious people who passed away that humans, they don't have the power to help us with anything. But still, Muslims were instructed to go there to these shrines and seek help from these creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they didn't follow the means didn't. They didn't they didn't follow the means of achievement, then follow the means of science and technology. And that's why you know, we are now in this state of affairs. The oma is is suffering now nowadays. And I think one of our problems will allow to Allah Allah is this confusion with the concept of terroir could that took place in the

00:39:03--> 00:39:17

history of Islam. The second example, the example of Maria Maria Santa Maria Maria Silla, when she us, she was young, and she was healthy.

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

She was able to make a living at that time, but she dedicated

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

her life to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the temple.

00:39:29--> 00:39:45

Her risk used to come without her doing anything. It was a gift from Allah and zekeriya would come to her place inside, and he would find some risk, some provision there. But when she became pregnant

00:39:47--> 00:39:48

with Risa La Silla

00:39:49--> 00:39:58

and she was about to give birth, there is Sally Sarah. So she was going through labor, which is a very difficult moment.

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

Those who have

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

have children and they went to the hospital with their wives know what I'm talking about.

00:40:05--> 00:40:07

It's a very tough time for woman's

00:40:09--> 00:40:12

when he goes through labor and they are about to give birth

00:40:13--> 00:40:18

to their babies. So Marian was in that week,

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

in a moment,

00:40:21--> 00:40:26

going through a lot. And of course, she had in mind another problem.

00:40:28--> 00:40:37

a bigger problem. She's the pious woman coming from a pious family. And she had to go and face her people with a child

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

within her hands.

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

And she knew that her her people will not believe her

00:40:46--> 00:40:55

will not believe that this child was born without a father. So it was a very difficult moment. And yet Allah subhanaw taala told her to do something.

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

Whoo hoo Zi la cabeza, in Allah.

00:41:00--> 00:41:25

In that moment when she needed food and help in Surah Maryam Allah Subhana, Allah is telling us that he told her, he instructed her wahoo Zi la kpg, very natality to socket, Alec eurotop. And Jenny II told her shake, to review the trunk of the palm tree, she was sitting beside the palm tree, shake the trunk of the palm tree, and it will draw upon you ripe and fresh dates.

00:41:28--> 00:41:45

Even if someone is strong and healthy, do you think if we shake apart the trunk of a palm tree, he will be able to get some dates. I mean, it's difficult, he might get some. But it's difficult, right? You have to usually people climb these trees to

00:41:47--> 00:41:51

collect the state's right to collect this data. This is how people collect data, right?

00:41:53--> 00:42:06

But yet the last fatalis telling how to do this. So he wants to educate as I said, Muslims and the believers throughout time that you need to pay attention to these means resources, even if they're weak.

00:42:08--> 00:42:12

Do your part do your job. And the last parameter Allah bless your efforts.

00:42:13--> 00:42:33

And the third principle we should never rely on this means and resources. Because as I said, Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created cause the cause and created the effect less verbal must be bet and it is the last part Allah controls the relationship between the cause and the effect. For example, the fire

00:42:34--> 00:42:51

the fire is supposed to burn right? The fire is the cause and the effect of the fire is burning. But the last parameter Allah because he's the one who created everything, he was able to stop fire from the fire from burning Abraham and he said

00:42:52--> 00:42:58

so even if you have the means, Allah subhanaw taala is able to if you rely on the means

00:43:00--> 00:43:09

is able to make this means and resources useless and they will not help you. We know many people who are healthy, they have no health problems.

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

And they have no children.

00:43:13--> 00:43:23

We go and consult the doctors has been in life. They have no problems. The doctor would tell them I don't see any problem with everything is fine.

00:43:24--> 00:43:26

But the last panel data did not give them children

00:43:28--> 00:43:32

and they do everything they are supposed to do it with no children.

00:43:34--> 00:43:39

It's a risk from a loss pelota children are a type of risk in this life.

00:43:41--> 00:43:42

It says they are

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

and there are people who wait for 10 years. I know people who waited for 10 years 15 years before they were blessed with children and I know some people who kept on saying that you're either beautiful Zachary Valley center

00:43:57--> 00:44:04

for Bill attorney for them. When the highroad wire scene is Oracle MBA analyst pacala at the end, bless them with children.

00:44:06--> 00:44:40

He blessed them with children so it is everything comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala and there is a beautiful dog that lives Hello Salalah alayhi wa sallam said he said in the debris royal kudos both theory and know who lent him attention to Stephen Miller as well however his car for tabula however as we do with Paulo will I mean in the cuckoo slipper or rusty Allah and that Luca vivocity la vendemmia in the LA Hello lava we must see it Oh la la la la with it. This is a famous Hadith in which are assumed lies as lm he said gibreel or Rahel kudos

00:44:41--> 00:44:46

has cast into by my heart, that new soul shall die

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

until it's complete its term appointed term this life philosophy that Allah decreed for you that you're going to live 80 years then no one will be able to

00:45:00--> 00:45:24

Your life until you reach that age. If he decrees for you decreed for you to live 100 years, then you're going to live 100 years, no one will be able to end your life. That is the decree of Allah. And then he said in the same Hadith, at that stack Miller agenda, however, is until it completes the appointed term, and it receives

00:45:26--> 00:45:29

the risk its provision in full.

00:45:30--> 00:45:59

So whatever was written for you, you will get it, you will receive it, no one will stop your risk from coming to you. That's why our last panel what Allah wants you, He wants you as a movement to pay attention to your duty on earth. And what is your duty on earth is to worship the last panel What are your duty is to prepare yourself to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when we say worshipping a Lost Planet, Allah we don't mean staying in the mercy 24 hours

00:46:00--> 00:46:08

is to make that balance between your spiritual needs, achieve this balance between your spiritual needs and between your material needs.

00:46:09--> 00:46:50

Between your job between your family life, this is something very important here what because sometimes you keep talking about dunia and dunia we are going after dunia and we feel like all we make other people feel that you are not supposed to look for a job and are supposed to go from school to school and are supposed to do anything. You just keep worshipping Allah subhanaw taala your risk will come first your risk will come to you. But the last predator Allah has created means and tools and as bad and we need to do this, this job. But here in this hadith of Lhasa, Salah visa, said you will get your risk no one will be able to stop your risk from coming to you from Tacoma,

00:46:50--> 00:47:27

00:49:34--> 00:49:40

better if you get a job in which they don't allow you to praise them.
